Islamists in Tennessee do not allow their children to participate in Halloween festivities. This is one more way to stay separate from the kuffar and keep the children from assimilating into the American culture of fun.
With the help of Islamist leaders like Remziya Suleyman, MYNT (Muslim Youth Navigating Tennessee) plan events like “Halaloween” and use the opportunity for speakers like Cyrus McGoldrick from CAIR, to remind the younger Muslims that their first allegiance is to the “ummah” and that Muslims in the U.S. are victims who are demonized for following their religion.
CAIR is the political arm of the “shadowy” Muslim Brotherhood that has as its motto:
Allah is our objective.
The Prophet is our leader.
The Qur’an is our law.
Jihad is our way.
Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.
Up until 2013, Cyrus McGoldrick headed the New York CAIR chapter. He speaks at anti-Israel rallies and liberally tweeted and posted his Jew-hatred on his Facebook page using the chant “from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free” which communicates a desire to eliminate the Jewish homeland.
Suleyman’s Civic Engagement Coordinator Drost Kokoye, who is also a MYNT advisor, organized and led pro-Hamas rallies this past summer where the same death-to-Israel chant was used.
Who or what is Suleyman pretending to be?
Suleyman isn’t dressed up for Halloween. She says she bought this outfit so she could pretend to be a Kurdish female Peshmerga who are fighting against ISIS. Unlike Suleyman whose organization was founded on and whose identity is fully vested in the “Muslims as victim” narrative, the Peshmergas don’t see themselves as victims.
But unlike Suleyman, the Peshmergas are fighting for less sharia law, not more.
