(Community Matters) Last week, some were crowing about the Gallup poll’s generic ballot being at -10 for Democrats.
Now, the Gallup poll’s generic ballot is tied. National polls for congressional district races are meaningless anyhow, but thought I’d share the latest for balanced perspective. Each race will be won or lost in each district. It’ll be all about turn out and whether we want to rehire political leadership which brought us near economic collapse or leadership which has delivered healthcare reform, financial regulatory reform and prevented another Great Depression
(Community Matters) very pleased to see ADL weighing in here
ADL Calls “International Burn a Koran Day” Reprehensible
Boca Raton, FL, August 5, 2010 … The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) condemns plans of the Dove World Outreach Center (DWOC) to hold “International Burn a Koran Day” on September 11, 2010. While utterly reprehensible, these plans are not unexpected. They fall within DWOC’s established pattern of anti-Islam activities, which are detailed in a new ADL backgrounder on the group.
Andrew Rosenkranz, ADL Florida Regional Director, issued the following statement:
The Anti-Defamation League is dismayed by the Dove World Outreach Center’s public campaign to promote anti-Islam propaganda. The group is providing a platform for hatred against all Muslims, and is promulgating myths, falsehoods and stereotypes about Islam.
The upcoming “International Burn a Koran Day” is the latest anti-Islam tactic employed by an organization led by Pastor Terry Jones and author of the book, “Islam is of the Devil.” It undoubtedly is intended to cast blame on all Muslims for 9/11, and not the extremists who perpetrated the terrorist attack.
Recent examples of DWOC’s hate-fueled activities include: an “Islam is of the Devil” campaign in July 2009 and was publicly condemned by ADL; DWOC member participation in an anti-gay demonstration organized by the Westboro Baptist Church in April 2010; and a July 5, 2010 protest of the Islamic Center on University Ave. in Gainesville.
