A non-Muslim looking woman with a non-Muslim sounding name sounds the alarms about “Islamophobic” rhetoric being directly responsible for hatred against Muslims. Never does she venture to think that Muslim’s anti-American behavior is directly responsible for hatred against Muslims.
Her name is JILLIAN HOLZBAUER and looking at her photo (right), one would never guess that she works for terror-linked CAIR (Council on Anti-American Islamic Relations) but she does. In fact, she is Communications Director (and chief propagandist) for CAIR-Oklahoma. You’ll recognize her phony claims, we’ve seen them here so many times before. They seem to be the standard talking points distributed by CAIR to all the media and Democrat politicians.
Tulsa World Jillian writes: “Islamophobia has become a prominent buzzword in the realm of political rhetoric. Some see it as the pinnacle of a climate of discrimination in America; others view it as a smear tactic to inhibit free speech. But what is the real pulse of our great nation when it comes to that delicate balance between freedom of religion and freedom of speech?
U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., and others declare that the United States government has been infiltrated and compromised by Muslim terrorists. U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh, R-Ill., contends that radical Islam is “trying to kill Americans every week” and that “it is a threat that is much more at home now than it was after 9/11.”
In our own state, former Rep. Rex Duncan said of Islam and Sharia law, “It’s the face of the enemy, and we need to call it what it is.”
Meanwhile, vandals throw bottles filled with acid at an Islamic school for children in Illinois (No, it was ONE bottle found on the lawn). Assailants hurl bloody pig legs at worshippers leaving a prayer service at a mosque in California. (NO, two women dropped 3 pigs legs outside a mosque, they didn’t hurl anything at anyone) A mosque in Joplin, Mo., is burned to rubble. (Yet still no arrests, even though there was a clear photo of a strange man near the mosque at night a few weeks before) Oklahoma City-area Muslims wake up to find their house of worship vandalized with paint balls. (There were about 6 small paintball marks on the door of the mosque, easily washable)
Within a week and a half, eight cases of attacks on houses of worship occurred nationwide, seven of them against the American-Muslim community. (What they call “attacks,” normal people call graffiti or minor vandalism of the cosmetic kind). It has become increasingly difficult to ignore the extent to which extreme rhetoric is inspiring extreme actions. (You call it “extreme rhetoric,” the rest of us call it the truth)
We have collectively buried our heads in the sand on the issue of discrimination and Islamophobia, and are now reaping the suffocating results: bigotry and violence targeting American Muslims. (Buried your heads? HAH! I have hundreds of stories just on this blog of CAIR thugs whining about everything from a kid calling another kid, ‘Raghead’ to countless lawsuits against employers who refuse to allow Muslim headbags to be worn at work. Much of the hatred directed at Muslims is because Muslims never stop accusing Americans of being insensitive to their over-the-top religious demands) Violence is unacceptable, but so is silence. As Elie Wiesel said, “Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormenter, never the tormented.” (You relentless whiners are anything but silent)
An attack on any house of worship should be considered an attack on every house of worship and, further, an attack on our American values. (That’s the problem, Muslims hate American values, think they are superior, and never let us forget it) When our own citizens are living in fear every day for doing what our Constitution promises they can do – practice their religion freely and openly – we cannot continue to propagate statements that demonize them, then scratch our heads in mock wonder and disown responsibility for violent acts against them. (The Constitution does not give you the right to impose your religion on the rest of us which is what you keep trying to do. Graffiti and paintballs and pigs feet are violence? Suicide bombers, murders of soldiers on US soil, plotting to attack government buildings, female genital mutilation, honor killings, now THAT’S violence at which Muslims excel)
Applauding suspicion of an entire people group while feigning surprise when violence against that very same group surges is at best disingenuous, and at worst dangerous. (Suspicious behavior by Muslims is what causes people to be suspicious of them)
As long as this gross trend of debasing and dehumanizing our fellow citizens who happen to be Muslim continues, it is the responsibility of freedom-loving Americans to stand together and say that we will not tolerate hatred and discrimination in our community. (Muslims hate freedom which is why they are trying to kill free speech and impose sharia law on us)
Oklahomans have a reputation for being some of the friendliest people in the nation. I pray we as Oklahomans, and we as Americans, will extend that warmth and hospitality to our neighbors of all faiths and backgrounds; I pray that we as Oklahomans and Americans will stand up and speak out against the hate that threatens to swallow us all.” (Most of the hate in the world comes from Muslims, who learn to hate unbelievers from their holy books)
Thanks to BNI Reader Henry P, we now have some background information on Jillian, who happens to be a ‘Jew, or should I say ‘Judenrat who worked for the ‘Holy Land’ Trust, the same terrorist-funding charity that put several CAIR officials behind bars.

Jillian Holzbauer of Stillwater carried a sign saying, “This Jew supports peace in Palestine.”
Holzbauer, a student at Oklahoma State University, said she spent the past three summers in the West Bank working with Holy Land Trust, a Palestinian nonprofit group.“I saw that this isn’t really a religious issue, this is an issue about people who are living under military occupation for 40 years and they’re in a very desperate situation,” she said. The Rev. Kristen Brown, a United Methodist minister assigned to the campus of Southwest Oklahoma State University in Weatherford, said she attended the event to bring awareness about the Palestinians’ plight.
