Jim Gilmore’s Statement on US Muslims Fighting Terrorism!

Gilmore hails American Muslims who are willing to fight terrorism.

Alexandria, VA — Former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore, who two months ago urged Muslim leaders to join the battle against Islamic terrorism, today hailed groups like Muslims Facing Tomorrow for their efforts to speak out in the fight against Muslim terrorists. Muslims Facing Tomorrow, composed of more than a dozen Islamic groups from the U.S. and Canada, this week rejected the efforts of the Council for Islamic-American Relations (CAIR) for its statement that American actions have provoked terrorism. “There are many honest, hardworking American-Muslims who have served our country in the armed forces,” said Gilmore, a veteran of U.S. Army intelligence. “They and the hundreds of thousands of other American-Muslims who are first and foremost Americans deserve better than the irresponsible, inflammatory rhetoric being disseminated by CAIR.”

“I am gratified that honest, patriotic American-Muslim leaders are now speaking out,” Gilmore said. “It helps me in my efforts to urge those presidential candidates who are using a broad brush to condemn all Muslims, and all Hispanics for that matter, for the bad actions of
others who have dishonored their culture.”

“Our nation has always been a place of tolerance and acceptance and it should remain so, even in the face of the terrorist threat,” Gilmore said. “If we turn our backs on all Muslims and all Hispanics during this stressful time, the terrorists will have scored a victory.

This is good.  Remember:  Governor Gilmore IS on the VA ballot March 1.  He’s best and most experienced to deal with the Three Ts:

  • Taxes
  • Fighting Terrorism
  • Technology

Jim Gilmore will make a great President.  He has no part of present-day DC.  He’s an outsider who was elected Attorney General and then Governor and served honorably in both positions (not to mention his military service!) and determined?  Young Jim Gilmore, I am told, sat in the dean’s office at UVA Law School on the first day, hoping for a last-minute vacancy (he had been accepted to another law school) and he got it!  Get out and help Governor Gilmore today!

  1. Gee, I think I missed something compelling from Jim’s speech. Maybe I should read it again.
