Newsletter #198 – Is This What Airport Security Looks Like?

Last week’s jihad at the Istanbul airport killed more than 40 people and wounded 147.

The March 2016 jihad at Brussels Zaventem Airport which, along with an almost simultaneous attack on a rush-hour metro station, killed close to 30 people and wounded at least 271.

These are just the big ones news outlets have reported. There have been plenty more planned but foiled attacks.

And don’t forget about the dead Somali ISIS fighter Abdirahmaan Muhumed. He worked at the Minneapolis airport cleaning planes where the security clearances required by this job gave him access to the tarmac and other secured areas of the airport.

In 2010 during the prosecution in Nashville of the Somali sex-trafficking case, it was discovered that three of the defendants had a brother who was employed by an airplane maintenance company at the Nashville airport. He was able to bypass all security and took one of the defendants into restricted airport areas including the cockpit of a plane.

Two days after Istanbul, CIA director John Brennan warned, “[i]f anybody here believes the U.S. homeland is hermetically sealed and that (ISIS) would not consider that, I would guard against it.

Once again, security measures for U.S. airports are being reviewed. Will that include the absurd, special treatment TSA provides for Islamist travelers, particularly those wearing a burka or hijab?

CAIR reminds Muslim women who wear a hijab that if they are selected for secondary screening, they can ask that it be done in a private room or “instead of the pat-down, you can always request to pat down your own scarf, including head and neck area, and have the officers perform a chemical swipe of your hands.”

Note that CAIR lawyer Zahra Billoo says “the flag of Islam is our women who wear hijab.” The TSA certainly wouldn’t want to desecrate the flag of Islam, would they?

So while non-Muslims are busy undressing in the airport in the name of security, TSA and our government is contorting the rules to accommodate political sharia supremacists… like this one at the Nashville airport just a few months ago:

Newsletter #197 – Nashville Jewish Leftists Partner with BDS Proponents Against Islamophobia

Islamophobia” was invented by the International Institute for Islamic Thought (IIIT), a Muslim Brotherhood front organization. The term as confirmed by former insider Abdur-Rahman Muhammad is specifically intended to suppress any criticism of Islam and Muslims – even those that commit violent jihad.

The IIIT was part of a 5 year terrorism financing investigation for its questionable ties to terrorist groups and for being the largest monetary donor to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist group. The IIIT’s deceit of Islamophobia erodes our First Amendment speech rights and facilitates violent jihad.

The neighbor of the San Bernadino jihadis who saw suspicious activity didn’t report it fearing she would be called a racist.

Jewish leftists in Nashville believe they are the David to the Goliath of Islamophobia

In December 2015, shortly after the November Paris jihad, Rabbi Mark Schiftan, Nashville Jewish community’s leading Muslim apologist, rushed to join Nashville’s ultra-progressive leftists Mayor Megan Barry in a public show of solidarity against Islamophobia and the phantom hate crimes it allegedly inspires. Schiftan was joined by other Nashville rabbis including Shana Mackler, Joshua Kullock and Joshua Barton.

barry islamophobia 2

The real joke is on Schiftan, the other rabbis and the Jewish social justice warriors that followed him, because the Muslim Brotherhood creators of Islamophobia also promote BDS (Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions) against Israel. Does the senior rabbi of The Temple in Nashville even care that the goal of BDS is to end Israel as Jewish state? Does he understand that the anti-Israelism of BDS is the 20th century’s new anti-Semitism?

Omar Barghouti, co-founder of the Palestine Boycott National Committee says that Palestinian right of return, a demand made by BDS promoters, would mean “youd have a Palestine next to a Palestine.” It would end Israel as a Jewish state.

Hatem Bazian, founder and chairman of American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), has formally joined with named Muslim Brotherhood organizations to form the U.S. Council on Muslim Organizations (USCMO).

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), describes AMP as “anti-Semitism under the guise of educating Americans about the just cause of Palestine and the rights of self-determination.”

AMP’s first conference in 2006 featured several former Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP) leaders including Osama Abu Irshaid (IAP board member and now AMP and USCMO board member) who speaking at an SJP event, told his audience that he considers firing rockets from Gaza into Israel “legitimate resistance.” IAP served as a U.S. based propaganda outlet for HAMAS.  Nihad Awad and Omar Awad, both former IAP officials, started CAIR.  Nihad Awad, who publicly voiced his support for HAMAS is a founding member of USCMO.

AMP helps train and support Student for Justice in Palestine activists to bring the BDS message to college campuses.  SJP’s 2002 national convention was sponsored by the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), with guest speaker Sami al-Arian. AMP’s collaboration with Sami al-Arian, the head of the Palestine Islamic Jihad brings a certain irony to the issue of Islamophobia.

The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) has also joined forces with the USCMO and individual USCMO organizations including AMP. In fact, ISNA has actively promoted AMP and its BDS agenda. ISNA’s Secretary General has been a repeat speaker at AMP conferences and AMP founder Hatem Bazian has spoken at ISNA conferences since ISNA has its own long history of Jew hatred and ISNA leaders supporting BDS campaigns.

Does Schiftan realize he is surrounded?

Samar Ali, a Metro Nashville Human Rights Commissioner also attended the December Muslim solidarity event. Samar’s father, Subhi Ali has served as the Chairman of the Jerusalem Fund (JF) since 2005. The founder of the Jerusalem Fund, Hisham Sharabi, endorsed the anti-Israel rhetoric and actions of pro-Palestinian groups like the Muslim Brotherhood HAMAS. 

In keeping with the JF’s anti-Israel advocacy, it’s director from 2009 – 2015, Yousef Munayyer openly advocated for BDS. Munayyer left the JF to become the Executive Director of the U.S. Campaign to End the Occupation another organization listed among the Anti-Defamation Leagues Top 10 Anti-Israel Groups in America.

On September 14, 2015, the Jerusalem Fund’s new Director, Zeina Azzam, hosted the program titled “Building the BDS Movement for Justice in Palestine.”

Schiftan’s Temple past president Bernard Werthan is also a board member of Daoud Abudiab’s Faith and Culture Center (FCC). Abudiab tries hard to portray himself as an interfaither with the singular agenda of creating a positive impression of Muslims through his “Our Muslim Neighbor” a project of Religions for Peace USA, an organization itself tied to Muslim Brotherhood organizations. Coming out of the closet in his own way, Abudiab joined the Muslim Brotherhood organizations at the USCMO conference in Washington.

Maybe Abudiab senses that jihad apologists like Schiftan agree that Israel has wronged the Palestinians and can understand why an intifada, a Palestinian uprising (like the Palestinian suicide bombers who massacred innocent Israelis in the Sbarro pizza restaurant), is justified. Regardless, Abudiab is now showing his anti-Israelism: 

daoud facebook

Islamist Jew-haters like Hisham Sharabi, founder of the Jerusalem Fund and supporter of “radical Palestinian terror groups” understood how gullible American leftist progressives are.  He predicted that the intifada followed by a BDS campaign would be supported by “progressive Jewish forces in Israel and the United States…[any group] enlisted in the ‘progressive’ cause of the Palestinian Arabs – why not, anyone ‘progressive’ enough to embrace Hamas…is someone useful to Israel’s enemies.”

 


Newsletter #193 – Pat Shea, CEO of the YWCA Betrays Women and Puts on a Hijab

pat shea at ICN copy 2

Some women say their hijab represents religiously mandated modesty.

Some women say their hijab is a political statement.

Some women say they are forced to wear a hijab.

Pat Shea, a non-Muslim voluntarily put on a hijab during a mosque sermon on “Domestic Violence/Compassionate & Honorable Treatment Towards Women in Islam.”

Pat Shea is the YWCA CEO and operates the largest domestic violence shelter in the state of Tennessee. Does Shea know that the hijab is a source of violence to Muslim women worldwide and in the U.S?

Muslim women have been killed for refusing to wear a hijab. For example:

  • 2007 – Canada, murder of 16 year old Aqsa Parvez choked to death by her father

with the hijab she refused to wear

  • 2014 – in Somalia, woman murdered for refusing to veil
  • 2015 – Iraq, five women stoned to death for not wearing a hijab
  • 2015 – India, father kills his four year old daughter for not wearing a hijab at dinner

January 2015, a non-Muslim woman living in Muslim-majority Bangladesh murdered for not wearing a hijab

Muslim women have been threatened with violence for not wearing a hijab. For example:

  • 2011 – Britain, woman is threatened with death by her cousin for not wearing a

hijab

  • 2013 – Sudan, a woman faces whipping for not wearing a hijab
  • 2014 – Pankisi Gorge, a brother stabs his sister for refusing to wear a hijab
  • 2015 – Missouri, a high school student dragged her from her

classroom and assaulted by a relative for not wearing a hijab

Enlightened Muslim women in 2015 reject people like Pat Shea putting on a hijab

Self-described “mainstream Muslim women” living in the U.S., many of whom were born in countries where sharia law governed, have rejected the mysogynistic Islamic call for women to cover themselves. They reject Western women showing “solidarity” by participating in “Wear a Hijab” day and interfaith imitators tying on the headscarf.

In fact, these adult Muslim women explain that hijab doesn’t even mean headscarf. “This conflation of hijab with the secular word headscarf is misleading. ‘Hijab’ literally means  ‘curtain’ in Arabic. It also means ‘hiding,’ ‘obstructing’ and ‘isolating’ someone or something. It is never used in the Koran to mean headscarf.”

These women understand that if Muslim women living in the West are free to choose hijab or no hijab, patriarchy in Islam which is supported and perpetuated by political Islamists, will cease to dominate.

Political Islamists like Remziya Suleyman and Kasar Abdullah Bigdawidi (pictured above with Shea), are Muslim activists who have promoted Islamist Muslim Brotherhood organizations like CAIR and the Muslim Students Association. They assert absurd hijab positions like the hijab gives them more rights than American women allowing them to be judged by intellect, not looks.

Suleyman even admitted that she didn’t start wearing a hijab until 2008 when she

coincidentally also started lobbying in the Tennessee state legislature. With all the rights she asserts afforded by wearing a hijab, her Islamic community still maintains her first duty is to find a husband and complete her “deen” (subjugation).

RS hijab

Shame on Shea

Kasar Abdullah Bigdawidi is the token Islamist on Shea’s YWCA board, so Shea, true to leftist hypocrisy, let herself be used for Kasar’s political purposes even though the YWCA claims to be an advocate for women’s rights.

When YWCA CEO Pat Shea put on the hijab she professed to upholding the Islamic laws that knowledgeable Muslim women understand keep them in a second class status.

Muslim Brotherhood CAIR lawyer Zahra Billoo says “[t]he flag of Islam is our women who wear hijab.” The hijab is a symbol.

So is the Nazi salute.


Newsletter #190 -When “Social Justice” Replaces the Religion

 

The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society announced that they will drop the word “Hebrew” and go simply by “HIAS.” They are one of the national federal refugee resettlement contractors screaming for Obama to admit at least 200,000 Syrian refugees regardless of valid security and cost concerns. HIAS and the other resettlement industry contractors have criticized Obama’s measly 10,000 Syrians that he has begun bringing to the U.S. This number of 10,000 is on top of the 70,000 plus of the mostly-sharia-compliant refugees from Islamic America-hating countries.

HIAS, like all resettlement businesses whose revenue is overwhelimingly government money, try to camouflage their extreme political leftism using religious organizational labels. They claim a moral superiority because “they save lives.”

HIAS is supported in its efforts by the extreme leftist Union for Reform Judaism (URJ), whose president, Rabbi Rick Jacobs, has endorsed Obama’s decision to admit Syrian refugees.

The URJ also supports “Free Choice in Abortion.”

The URJ has a political arm called the Religious Action Center (RAC) whose work and policy positions are “mandated” by the URJ and the various arms of the Reform Jewish movement. The Nashville Temple Ohabai Sholom in Nashville, is a Reform Jewish congregation and a member of the URJ, a recipient of URJ grant money, and as the Temple’s rabbi Shana Mackler says, is a proud supporter of Planned Parenthood.

The Temple is led by senior rabbi Mark Schiftan who shares the URJ’s love of Muslim Islamists. URJ’s immediate past president, rabbi Eric Yoffe, was one of the first Jewish leaders to speak at the annual ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) convention. ISNA was founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood’s first U.S. organization, the Muslim Students Association (MSA). ISNA was also named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) trial for financing the terrorist group HAMAS. HAMAS, a U.S. designated terrorist organization, the jihadist arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, is dedicated to the destruction of Israel.

Rabbi Schiftan says that Islamists who support the Muslim Brotherhood and HAMAS, are not enemies, just “opponents.” So the Murfreesboro mosque hosting HAMAS supporters like CAIR executive director Nihad Awad and senior Muslim Brotherhood leader and unindicted co-conspirator Jamal Badawi, was not reason enough to keep Schiftan from hauling his congregation to a mosque love-fest. Nor is the fundamentalism of imams trained at Al Ahzar University, the preeminent teaching center of sharia law, enough to keep Schiftan from looking for every public opportunity to validate an ideology focused on destroying Israel.

iftar 1iftar 2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yoffe has called John Hagee, an extremist. Hagee is the leader of CUFI (Christians United for Israel), one of Israel’s largest allies and advocates in the U.S. Leftists like Yoffe, and his “Torah of Liberalism” puts support for gays and abortion above sincere and impactful advocacy for the Jewish ancestral homeland.

Abbie Wolf, the Nashville Jewish Federation’s director of the Community Relations Council, shares Yoffe’s pro-Muslim bias and Christianophobia. In advance of a Nashville visit by CUFI’s Executive Director, Wolf published a piece titled “Christian Zionism – do the Concerns Outweigh the Benefits?” She says that the only real value Christian Zionist lovers of Israel bring to the table, is their large voting bloc and their money.

Like Yoffe, Wolf denounces Christian lovers of Israel because they don’t equally love Islamists like HAMAS and other Muslim Brotherhood followers.

*********

Islamist ideology is obsessed with the destruction of Jews and Israel. Do political leftists who actively deny and abet the Islamist plan even deserve to call themselves Jews?


Newsletter #186 – Islamophobia Makes Tennessee Unsafe (part 2 of 4)

Leftists and Islamists: The Red-Green Alliance Points ISIS Sympathizers To Tennessee Targets

In November 2014, Georgetown University’s Alwaleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding (ACMCU and the Muslim Brotherhood’s Institute for Social Policy and Understanding (ISPU), co-hosted a meeting called “Canaries in a Coal Mine: How Islamophobia Threatens Us All.”

canary

Who and what is the ISPU?

The ISPU was founded in Detroit by Muslims shortly after 9-11. It opened a D.C. office in 2010 to have easier access to politicians. ISPU describes itself as a “non-partisan and independent think tank and research organization..” even though Obama appointee, Dalia Mogahed, ISPU Director of Research blames Republicans for Islamophobia. (more on Dalia in Part 3.)

ISPU’s list of “scholars” includes Jew-hater Hatem Bazian, Muqtedar Khan who is affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood’s IIIT (International Institute on Islamic Thought), Arsalan Iftikhar CAIR’s former national legal director, and Sherman Jackson whose Muslim Brotherhood ties are well documented.

Recent ISPU “research” targets Republican legislators and this “research” is being used to convince the leftists at the November meeting, to ally with Islamists living in the U.S. Since when is the red-green alliance “non-partisan?”

Very little public information is available about who actually started and funded the ISPU, but its 2002 Form 990 lists Iltefat Hamzavi as a Financial Director who signed the 990. Hamzavi’s Foundation’s 990 shows $6,500 directed to the ISPU in 2012 along with donations to the Muslim Brotherhood’s ISNA and Mercy-USA. Hamzavi is listed as the ISPU Board Chairman in its 2013 annual report.

The ACMCU/ ISPU Targeting Meeting

The November meeting’s moderator was Dalia Mogahed, a defender of Muslim Brotherhood groups like CAIR. She was an Obama appointee to his Council on Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships.

The ACMCU/ISPU event highlighted self-serving “research” on Islamophobia “and its connection to bigotry targeting other communities.” Participants and promoters of this effort are banking on America becoming a minority-majoritycountry by 2050 (fueled by illegal immigration and refugee resettlement?) This meeting was designed to cement the Left (women, gays,illegal immigrants,etc), the Black community, and the Muslim community together in a liaison of victimhood.

In March, ING (Islamic Networks Group of which Tennessee AMAC is an affiliate), leader Maha ElGenaidi and ISPU’s Dalia Mogahed held a private research briefing in San Jose and described the ISPU “research” this way:

The research examines Islamophobia by studying state-level anti-rights legislative efforts and their connection to bigotry targeting other communities and the eventual demographic shift to a “majority-minority” population by the year 2050. (emphasis added)

The ISPU decided that state-level legislation in these subject areas was evidence of bigotry:

  • abortion
  • anti-immigration
  • anti-sharia
  • LGBTQ
  • right to work
  • voter ID

Aping the language of the left, ElGenaidi and Mogahed said the goal was for “change agents..to empower and inform collective action.” Tying the global jihadist movement to the Left, whose actual goals are antithetical to Islamic doctrine, just shows how insidious and insincere the Islamists’ intentions really are. CAIR-Michigan’s Director Dawoud Walid said it best:

dawud on gays

This raises legitimate questions about Islamists like Mwafaq Aljabarry whose Democrat voting history didn’t prevent him from running in the Tennessee Republican primary for a State House seat as an alleged conservative. And, there is Mohamed Elibiary who claims that his calling to reform the conservative movement before the 2016 election is the reason he left his position with the Department of Homeland Security.

Lobbyist “voice of Tennessee Muslims” Paul “Iesa” Galloway is also busy promoting himself as a states’ rights conservative 10th Amendment Republican just like his Muslim Brotherhood-supporting mentor Mohamed Elibiary.

ISPU Targets State Legislators

Using radical leftist Alinsky tactics, the ISPU collated its “research” into an interactive map targeting certain elected officials. Did they consider that recent examples of Leftist violence may have put the targeted legislators at serious risk of bodily harm? Do they even care?

IPSU map copy

For example, the ACMCU and the ISPU are aided in targeting Islamophobes by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

The SPLC (assets of over $250 million), according to their “research,” lists the Family Research Council (FRC) as a “hate group.” In 2012, a SPLC follower said that this report inspired him to shoot the security guard at the FRC offices as part of his plan to “kill as many as possible.” Following the shooting, the SPLC posted “FRC Deserves ‘hate group’ label” which was the SPLC’s justification for targeting the group despite the shooting.

The SPLC has also published a dossier on Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach. In June 2013, a mob of leftist pro-illegal immigration agitators trespassed on his private home property in an effort to intimidate and retaliate against him for enforcing the Kansas’ voter registration law that requires proof of citizenship.

************

Saul Alinsky made leftist radicalism a profession. He created a school to train radicals and wrote a curriculum called Rules for Radicals. He said there were no hard and fast truths, no moral or ethical considerations that should guide a radical’s demands. Nor were there hard and fast rules about how radicals should go about getting demands met. Alinsky wrote:

“The third rule of ethics of means and ends is that in war the end justifies almost any means.

Leftists have a dense history of political violence with the more recent examples of Ferguson and Baltimore’s burning, looting and shootings.

The jihadists and the Left are more natural allies than anyone ever realized.


Newsletter #185 – Islamophobia Makes Tennessee Unsafe (part 1 of 4)

The Muslim Brotherhood’s CAIR says “Islamophobia is close-minded prejudice against or hatred of Islam and Muslims” and “[a]n Islamophobe is an individual who holds a closed-minded view of Islam and promotes prejudice against or hatred of Muslims.”

CAIR has declared Tennessee to be one of the most Islamophobic states in the U.S.

Founder and former director of the Tennessee American Center for Outreach (ACO), Remziya Suleyman, for years, repeatedly singled out Tennessee and blamed specific Tennessee organizations and specific individuals for bringing Islamophobia to the state.

Paul IesaGalloway who was a Texas CAIR Director from 2002 to 2006, now runs the ACO and has taken over Suleyman’s job of identifying Islamophobia in Tennessee.

aco knoxville event

Nihad Awad who publicly voices his support for HAMAS, is also the head of Galloway’s former organization, CAIR. Awad has been a regular visitor to Tennessee and CAIR has regularly inserted itself into Tennessee’s political activities. CAIR liberally uses accusations of Islamophobia to single out targets.

Galloway now lives in Nashville, runs the ACO Muslim advocacy organization and is a registered lobbyist talking directly to Tennessee’s state legislators. Until recently the ACO was a named local partner organization to Daoud Abudiab’s Faith and Culture Center. The listing has been changed to ““Local Muslim organizations and centers.”

Islamist activist Daoud Abudiabs Faith and Culture Center had planned to hold an Islamophobia conference on September 26, 2015 but renamed it after the jihadi murder in Chattannooga. Pushing the idea that the Chattaooga jihadist’s actions had nothing to do with Muslims or Islam they renamed the event to “Our Muslim Neighbor: Creating a Community of Inclusion in Middle Tennessee.”

Daoud Abudiab, former co-chair of Tennessee’s American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC), now serves as board president of the far left TIRRC (TN Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition), a pro-amnesty and open borders organization which supports the lawlessness of illegal immigration calling it “family reunification.” TIRRC received $310,000 of Soros money in 2012 and $469,000 in 2013. Can there be any question about what their REAL agenda is.

TIRRC logo

Abudiab is a supporter of the open borders group Clergy for Tolerance. He also spearheads “Our Muslim Neighbor” (OMN) initiative which is the sole focus of his Faith and Culture Center. Read “The Dark Side of the Interfaith Syndicate: ‘Our Muslim Neighbor,’ CAIR.”

CAIR and the Tennessee Islamist bullies use name-calling like “Islamophobe” to silence and threaten or provoke action against any criticism of Islam or political sharia. CAIR has been prolific in assembling reports and a website labelling individuals, organizations and actions they call the “Islamophobia Network.”

SoundVision, a department of the Muslim Brotherhood Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), instructs that Islamophobia includes acts like, “…depicting the Prophet as a terrorist, disrespecting the Quran, torturing prisoners, bombing civilians or occupying Muslim lands, these are all signs of Islamophobia” and it includes “any kind of hate crime or speech against Islam and Muslims.”

The Islamic State just released its 9th issue of its English magazine called Dabiqwith an introduction promoting the shooting in Garland Texas as inspirationfor Muslims living in the lands of the crusaders.

CAIR and Tennessees Islamist bullies like Abudiab, Galloway and Suleyman are now on notice that Islamic State (IS) sympathizers are encouraged and will be incited to respond to accusations of Islamophobia, with deadly violence. So why are Islamist agitators like CAIR, Suleyman, Galloway and Abudiab knowingly, willfully and recklessly continuing to mark the targets?

Are Islamophobia accusers willing to intimidate people into silence by whatever means? Can they justify the violence used by IS to silence critics of political Islam in Tennessee, once and forever?

After the jihad terrorist murders in Chattanooga, why would Tennessees Department of Homeland Security enable the deliberate inciting to violence?


Newsletter #182 – Persecution of Christians and Rape of Yazidis Are No Concern to Islamists Living in the U.S….

Except of course to disavow that these atrocities have anything to do with Islam.

Self-styled human rights Islamist activists living in the U.S. are talking about the same Islam that Memphis Imam Yasir Qadhi says deems Christians to be spiritually “filthy.” It’s the same Islam that Knoxville’s Islamic Annoor Academy’s textbook teaches about Christians leading “such decadent and immoral lives…” And the same Annoor Academy textbook teaches that the goal of the caliphate is, without exception, to follow the Quran, sharia law and the example of Muhammed:

“Muslims dream of establishing the power of Islam in the world.  Muslims of all types and backgrounds agree that the Islamic system is the best for humanity in this life.”

According to the Quran, the Hadith and sharia law, the “Islamic system” includes slavery and rape of captured non-Muslim women and girls, and persecution of Christians who don’t submit to Islam. (Quran at 9:5, 9:29, sharia law at o9.8).

The torture of Yazidis and persecution of Christians by Islamists in the Middle East is reported daily. Yet, Islamist leaders like Tennessee’s Daoud Abudiab and New York’s Linda Sarsour, who were publicly honored as human rights activists, remain silent.

Daoud Abudiab

Daoud Abudiab

Abudiab is a Palestinian who once lamented to the audience who had watched the anti-Israel film “5 Broken Cameras,” that “he was one of the ones that left.” Instead, he does his jihad in Tennessee by marketing the myth of Islamophobia to apologist Christians who prefer to ignore the very real and deadly persecution of Christians in Muslim majority countries.

Linda Sarsour

Linda Sarsour

Sarsour, head of the Arab American Association of NY, was born in New York after her parents, both Palestinians from the West Bank, immigrated to the U.S. Identifying herself as a Palestinian-American, Sarsour’s platform of victimhood is two-fold: alleged abuses of Palestinians by Israel and American discrimination and Islamophobia directed at Muslims living here. An “Open Letter to Muslim Feminist Linda Sarsour” asked her to speak out about the real victims, like the girls and women being enslaved and raped by ISIS jihadis.

Even Sarsour’s hometown newspaper, the leftist Jew and Israel hating New York Times, was willing to publish a lengthy expose on the issue – “ISIS Enshrines a Theology of Rape.”

Instead of discussing the reasons for the persecution of Christians and rape of Yazidis, Islamists in Tennessee try to buy a sympathy card for the Chattanooga jihad.

Islamists in Tennessee try to buy a sympathy card

After the jihadist murders in Chattanooga, Daoud Abudiab created a very public and self-congratulatory event in an effort to purchase goodwill for Tennessee’s Muslims. Twenty-two thousand dollars was raised by an interfaith group and donated to the Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga for the jihadi slain servicemen’s children. Even though the money was raised from an interfaith group, the propaganda was designed to promote Abudiab’s Faith and Culture Center and in order to highlight Muslim participation as good neighbors.

The sole agenda of Abudiab’s Center is “Our Muslim Neighbor,” a project “directed at the public for the positive transformation of views about Muslims and Islam.” Religions for Peace USA (RPUSA) is targeting Middle Tennessee with the “Our Muslim Neighbor” project. Ironically, RPUSA, is itself tied to Islamist Muslim Brotherhood organizations in the U.S., and cites as support for its choice to target Tennessee, CAIR’s pronouncement that Middle Tennessee is “arguably one of the most Islamophobic areas in America.

CAIR, a Muslim Brotherhood operative, was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism financing prosecution in U.S. history for raising money and sending it to the designated terrorist organization, HAMAS. In fact, CAIR’s national director, Nihad Awad, a frequent visitor to the Murfreesboro mosque, has publicly stated his support for HAMAS.

Are Muslims really the victims instead of the persecuted Christians or raped Yazidis?

The Faith and Culture Center’s website persists in the narrative that Muslims are victims of jihadists just like the infidels. But not being liked, being offended or even having your religion and prophet insulted, doesn’t make you a victim – of anything.

Abudiab and the rest of the self-pitying Muslim “human rights activists” who enjoy the freedom of living in the U.S. should take a lesson from the Canadian businessman who is helping to free Yazidi women and girls enslaved by ISIS, or the American Anti-Slavery group which worked for years freeing slaves in the Sudan.
