The indomitable Raheel Raza offers a “big
thanks” Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib for proving that, far from
fear-mongering, anti-Islamists have been correct all along to sound the alarm.
In the process, Raza details the latest brutal human rights abuses from
Since Islamists waged a declaration of war
against the West on September 11, 2001 (by their own admission), they have made
a concentrated effort to push the victim narrative.
Hence, at the same time many in the West
have been duped and brainwashed into thinking the Islamists are the victims, a
number of Islamists have successfully infiltrated the corridors of power in the
When fellow-concerned Muslims and I exposed
Islamists as well as their mosques and organizations for pushing radical
messages, we were labelled “fear-mongers” and told we were not really “in touch
Today we see that the situation has gone
way past “fear mongering,” with Islamists blatantly touching our daily lives
with their global subversive agenda.
While Christians and other non-Muslims are
being ethnically cleansed from Muslim-majority countries, let’s take a quick
look at what’s happening within those countries:
Saudi Arabia chopped up one of their own in
their consulate in Turkey and just recently beheaded 37 people on trumped up
terrorist charges (one severed head and body was displayed publicly to teach
people a lesson). The kingdom continues to jail and torture female activists
who speak out against Saudi’s guardianship laws. (Ironically, in April 2017,
Saudi Arabia was elected to UN Commission on Status of Women. In April 2018,
Saudi Arabia was also elected to the Executive Board of UN Women, also known as
the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women.)
The Taliban in Afghanistan recently
subjected four women to brutal public floggings. One woman who chose to talk
about the whipping she received. The beating was so bad, she lost
consciousness. Her crime? Being out in public without the mesh face covering over
her burqa and without a male guardian.
In Brunei, the sultan has enacted brutal
Sharia punishments such as stoning to death for gay sex and adultery. He
recently and shamelessly wrote a letter to the European Union asking for
“tolerance, respect and understanding” of the new laws which, he contends,
reflect “diversities in culture.”
China has imprisoned approximately two
million Muslims in “re-education” camps. Recently a British correspondent asked
Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan what he thought about the incarceration of
Muslims in China, given that scores of Chinese women are married to Pakistani
men. The prime minister’s response (which I think should be entered in the
Guinness Book of World Records as the most stupid response ever) was, “I haven’t
read much about that.” Pakistan is also on record for threatening The
Netherlands for hosting a cartoon contest. I guess incarcerating two million
Muslims is not Islamophobic but drawing a cartoon is.
Turkey’s Islamist president fancies himself
as the future ruler of a neo-Ottoman Empire. Since Islamist rose to power in
2002, the rate of honour killings in Turkey have increased at alarmingly rate.
Reports say Turkey now has the highest rate of honour killings in the world,
with many being passed off as “suicide.”
Iran continues to oppress and jail women
for pushing back against forced covering, among many other human rights abuses.
My point is that thanks to people like
Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, we no longer need to explain the mandate of
Islamists like the Muslim Brotherhood, et. al. Every time these two open their
mouthes, the ideology exposes itself clearly. This is happening in real time
and there is little we can do about it as they were democratically elected and
are exercising their freedom of speech.
However, the questions we can ask are:
Is this what their constituency believes?
If that is correct, then America is in more trouble than we can imagine.
If not, then they are speaking as
individuals and showing their true colors.
When Omar said about 9/11 that “some people
did something…” she was parroting the ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood and
other Islamists, which is all about deflection. She made it clear in this one
short, obscene statement where she stands in terms of loyalty to the land in
which she lives and was democratically elected.
Omar and Tlaib have called for impeaching
President Trump. My challenge to them is to name one Muslim country where two
women could be elected, challenge the head of state and get away with it.
So here’s thanking them for proving our
