Seriously, I don't get it at all. Following the latest wave of attacks* Ted Cruz has come out in favor of having an increased police presence in Muslim communities. The media and his opponents are having rage spasms, sputtering at him that it's racist or islamophobic or whatever. Why? Just what is wrong with more cops in the neighborhood? What are they going to do to the residents other than keep them safe? If more cops are a problem, you've got bigger worries than Islamofascism.
Say you lived in a high crime area or maybe your neighborhood has experienced a wave of rapes and robberies. When the mayor and chief of police announce that they're going to step up patrols on your streets, do you react in horror? "Good Lord, don't send more cops! That's the last thing we want!"
When you drive through a neighborhood where everyone has bars on their windows and businesses have razor wire atop their fences, do you think, "Boy, I'll bet these people want the cops to just leave them alone?"
Under Islamic law, apostates are to be killed. That is, if you decided you want to leave Islam and become a Unitarian, your fellow Muslims are supposed to kill you. As in kill you until you die from it. If you think this is like one of those crazy rules in Leviticus that Jews and Christians ignore, in Afghanistan and Pakistan, around 90% of the population thinks this is a good thing.
Don't think this happens in Muslim communities in the West? Dig this.
A popular shopkeeper was stabbed to death by another Muslim in a "religiously prejudiced" attack hours after posting an Easter message on Facebook to "my beloved Christian nation".The assailant was just carrying out Sharia law. Sharia law is a central part of Islam. See how this works? It's like the Mafia. You can get in, but you can't get out and they'll use violence and intimidation to see to it.
Asad Shah, 40, a devout Muslim originally from the Pakistani city of Rabwah, had his head stamped on during a savage attack, according to one eyewitness.
Around four hours earlier the victim wrote online: "Good Friday and a very Happy Easter, especially to my beloved Christian nation. "Let's follow the real footstep of beloved holy Jesus Christ and get the real success in both worlds."
If you lived in a community where that was prevalent wouldn't you want more cops on the street? If we're going to assume that most Muslims aren't completely mad, then you'd have to think that when threats and intimidation started, they'd want someone in authority to turn to so they could report it and expect a firm response. That would be a policeman, in case you were wondering.
So circling back around to the beginning, I don't get it. What's wrong with more cops on the streets in Muslim communities?
