Muslims are demons

     In response to Ms. Norma Staaf’s letter to The Clearwater Progress last week, I would like to remind Ms. Staaf that I did not call for banning “refugees.”

     I specifically called for banning Muslims. The religions of our own immigrant ancestors did not and does not command that we murder all those with different faiths, as the Islamic Bible does. Christianity is a religion of love, peace, and forgiveness. Islam is a religion of hate, violence, and murder. Muslims do not integrate with society. Muslims come to America to conquer.

     The first step is infiltration, then consolidation of power, and finally open violence to impose Sharia law and associated cultural restrictions; rejection of the host government, and subjugation of other religions and customs. The list of nations already conquered by Muslims is too lengthy to list here but can easily be found by searching the Internet for “Muslim conquests.”

     Muslims live off the public welfare system and pledge to their god Allah to murder all those who refuse to convert to Islam in the most gruesome manner possible. Look at what has happened to the Muslim invasion of Europe. Rapes and murders are so far off the charts that it is driving native Europeans out of their own countries in fear for their lives. Why invite self-avowed murderers and rapists into Kamiah or anywhere else?

     Refugees who are willing to work hard, integrate into our society and cherish the values we hold dear such as those embodied in the United States Constitution and other documents should be welcome, but Muslims are none of these.

     Muslims are vicious, psychotic murderers who view non-Muslims as animals who should be raped and slaughtered. Inviting them into our communities is the height of foolishness and irresponsibility. Does Ms. Staaf really want to be forced to wear a Burqa covering her from head to toe with only her eyes showing?

     Perhaps she missed the quotation in my last letter of this passage from the Muslim Bible: Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve [in Allah]. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.”

Bad paving

     If the paving on Hill Street is considered acceptable, it’s no wonder when the city of Kamiah does anything, it’s a boondoggle, what happened to quality control and quality assurance.

Response to Build our economy: short and sweet

     If you are so unhappy with the economy here in Kamiah, the only suggestion I have for your dissatisfaction is to perhaps relocate?

     There is a sign miles down the road and it states, Leaving the Nez Perce Reservation. Problem solved. Boy that felt great! Had that one stuck in my craw for a week now.

Please support MMC Club

     Hello Kamiah community! Kamiah High School Teach and Coach Andy Martin and I have started an after school MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) Club for seventh through twelfth graders. During our first couple of weeks we’ve had an average of ten students each night.

     We could not be more pleased that so many students are interested in learning practical self-defense skills and martial arts. The only barrier to our progress is our current lack of equipment – but you can help.

     Mr. Martin and I have already purchased a few pairs of gloves, wraps, and headgear for the students with our own funds. We held a bake sale over the weekend and made over 150 dollars. Mr. Martin has sent in for a few grants, but we won’t be hearing back for a few more months. The school has one punching bag, but we could use a few more.

     If you have any martial arts equipment that is still in good condition, we could really use the donation. Punching bags, boxing gloves, punching shields, and headgear are all welcome supplies. Cash donations are also wonderful, as it allows us to order gear in the proper sizes for students. When you donate your supplies, we can work with you to make sure you get a receipt, since your donation will be tax deductible.

     A big thank you to all of the families who have donated so far, whether it’s equipment, or buying our cookies and brownies. Most of all, thank you for sharing your talented and hard-working student athletes with us.

     For donations, please contact: Andy Martin (Teacher/Coach), Email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or call 935–4067.
