Islam and the West (25 Apr 2019 NewAgeIslam.Com)

Thanks To People like Ilhan Omar And Rashida Tlaib, We No Longer Need To Explain The Mandate Of Islamists Like The Muslim Brotherhood

By Raheel Raza

April 24, 2019

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 Islamist countries:

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 West.

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 with Islam.”

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 point.

  • Hats Off continues to invent more and more lies about CAIR! He has tried to sully my name with lies in the past too, and since none of his attempts succeeded, he is now trying to defame me by associating me with his bete noire CAIR! I continue to be a dues paying member of CAIR, which is doing excellent work upholding the civil rights of American Muslims. My own views on various subjects are amply expressed in my comments in NAI, and one does not have to use the lies of Islamophobes about CAIR to derive my views.
    But Hats Off's sole activity consists of defaming and slandering Muslims and promoting hate against them and against Islam. He is not capable of doing anything else.

  • no.

    as usual you never get it.

    CAIR is an islamic organization. women cannot rise in that organization unless they don a hijab. they have annual events during which the speakers hold forth on the glories/benefits/logic of islam which is inavriably proved to be better than any thingammajig out there. especially in comparison to the "degenerate" western model.

    in asmuch as they are an islamic organization they need to have some stand on sex slaves, jizya and of course punishments for apostasy. and a whole lot of other brain dead concepts.

    you responded recently to the editor of this site and happened to express some anguish at the alarming rates of "unbelief" among the "merican" muslims. so where does that leave you?

    that just shows you have issues with your co-religionists opting out of your imaginary world.

    maybe you will not award capital punishment to apostates, but still it bothers you that people are leaving islam. it never bothers me who is leaving which religion. i merely comment on the social dynamics of aggressive dawah or proseletyzation - like for instance of death for apostasy as held forth by three out of four schools of islamic jurisprudence.

    still don't get it? none are as blind as those that won't see.

    do some some self examination and practice a little more honesty.

  • That is rubbish! Only an idiot would suggest asking questions about apostasy, jizya and slave girls  to an American civil rights organization. Hatefulness have destroyed your brain cells.

    By Ghulam Mohiyuddin - 4/28/2019 11:47:32 PM

  • just send in an email to the head goons at CAIR asking if apostasy should be punished. also ask if extorting jizya and taking sex slaves is ok.  i am sure you become more educated.
    By hats off! - 4/28/2019 6:24:49 PM

  • Ask whom? Do you understand that CAIR represents the full spectrum of the American Muslim community? Do you know that it works with the FBI, with the Jewish community and that it supported American Hindus' appeal to include them under the Hate Crimes Bill? What does a civil rights organization have to do with apostasy, Jaziya or sex slaves? Why are you so bent on spreading malicious lies about them?

    By Ghulam Mohiyuddin - 4/27/2019 11:56:20 PM

  • just ask them what is the punishment for apostasy. or ask them if taking sex slaves is justified. or imposing jizya is fine.

    instead of going on and on like a broken vinyl record.

    By hats off! - 4/27/2019 7:57:44 PM

  • I have been posting here for the past 10 years. Show me a single of my posts which is sympathetic to Muslim Brotherhood. And your allegations against CAIR are just plain ignorant and malicious. Its members are spread across the Islamic spectrum but its mission and activities are devoted to supporting the civil rights of American Muslims. Your accusations against CAIR echo similar accusations against it by right wing racist Americans. You should be ashamed of yourself.

    By Ghulam Mohiyuddin - 4/27/2019 10:58:57 AM

  • just because your sympathies lie with them does not make them into a "civil" rights organization.
    it is a shariah driven organization that wants the US to be ruled in accordance with shariah.
    just ask them if right hand posessions and collecting jizya and spitting into the mouths of dhimmies is ok.
    you might be surprised by their answers.
    but just ask them in private.
    this is because "moderate" muslims have two faces jaise haathee key dho tarah ke daanth hain. dikhaaney liye aik aur chabaaney key liye alag.
    you think people cannot see through your mask.

    By hats off! - 4/27/2019 4:17:18 AM

  • Hats Off's post is replete with hate and lies. The presence of Muslim Brotherhood ideology in America is much less now than it was 20 years ago. CAIR is not a religious or political organization. It is a civil rights advocacy group much like ACLU.

  • the MB has fully penetrated the american establishment. what with rumors of one of the top person in the CIA who has "reverted" to islam covertly.
    in britain the MB is spearheading the campaign to sabotage the "clear below the elbows" rule in utter disregard for patient safety.
    CAIR has confessed to its goal of sabotaging the american society from within and many "moderate" muslim economic raiders or opportunists covertly support the MB and clap every time an islamist insults their adopted country and spit into the very plate from which they eat.
    the safest position from which to serve the islamist cause is that of the "moderate".
    By hats off! - 4/25/2019 7:22:19 PM

  • Raheel Raza is talking nonsense. To call Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib "Islamists" is a blatant lie. She should ask herself whether the 9/11 attack was carried out by "some people" or by all Muslims?
