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 Muhammad:
“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 such as Tennessee’s Daoud Abudiab and New York’s Linda Sarsour, who were publicly honored as human rights activists, remain silent.
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.
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 twofold: 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 Sudan.
