An Islamic Twist to the American Declaration of Independence

In this twisted, chock-full-of-lies op-ed from Hamas terrorist Mousa Abu Marzook in the Washington Post, he ends by appealing to our founding documents.
We appeal to the American people's sense of fairness to judge this conflict in light of the great thoughts, principles and ideals you hold dear in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the democracy you have built. It is not unreasonable to expect America to practice abroad what it preaches at home. We can but sincerely hope that you use your honest judgment and the blessings of ascendancy God has given you to demand an end to the occupation. Meaningful democracy cannot flourish as long as an external force maintains the balance of power. It is the right of all people to pursue their own destiny.

In a morally reprehensible defense of the Iranian President's vow to wipe Israel off of the map, Imam Mohammed Ali Elahi, of the Islamic House of Wisdom in Dearborn Heights Michigan, offers this appeal:
In fact, the Iranian president's quip can best be understood in the American context of the Declaration of Independence:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed."

Americans fought a civil war and struggled for a century to end racial discrimination. "One man, one vote" worked for us here in the United States, and it is worth a try in the Holy Land.
This lovely piece of anti-semitic hatred was originally published in the Detroit News, the more conservative of Detroit's two daily papers.

So, in effect, a known terrorist and an obvious terror supporter attempt to misrepresent documents that guarantee freedom and liberty in order to convince the gullible to support tyranny, religious hatred, and the destruction of the very ideals of the Constitution and Declaration of Independence. The fact that Islam stands in direct opposition to these ideals is supposed to be ignored. In order to advance the cause of freedom and liberty throughout the world, these jihadis want us to believe that they must be free to destroy the country of Israel. Only then will the true beliefs of our founding fathers be realized. Well, maybe not quite then, it may have to wait for the destruction of the democratic United States and Europe and their admittance into the Umma.

This can't be coincidence. I have to assume that other Muslim writers are trying to subvert our institutions by appealing to our founding documents. I wonder if the jihadis exported to the U.S. learn which words to mouth in Iranian and Saudi Arabian jihad schools, or if they study us long enough once they get here, to figure out which of our buttons to push and how to push them. Either way, they obviously are using their knowledge of our culture and values in their struggle to undermine us. We, on the other hand in our politically correct, multicultural haze, can't even admit that the enemy is Islam!
