Let’s give Ilhan Omar some credit. She is driving the Zionists crazy with her highly controversial, highly contested claim that … Israel has lobbying groups.
What solidified Omar’s status as a bonafide anti-Semite was her follow up claim that … some American politicians are very pro-Israel.
Ok, so let’s acknowledge that these simple factual statements are causing a firestorm and that firestorm is a good thing, revealing the iron-grip of terror Zionists have at every level of US media and politics.
Outside the Zionist shills, the average American must be very confused by this controversy. They’re scratching their heads: “Is pointing out facts really anti-Semitic hate?”
The hypocrisy of these conniving Zionists in media and politics has been put on full display, and people are recognizing that it’s ugly.
Just go to any of these Democratic politicians’ Twitter feeds demanding Omar apologize:
It is disturbing that Rep. Omar continues to perpetuate hurtful anti-Semitic stereotypes that misrepresent our Jewish community. Additionally, questioning support for the U.S.-Israel relationship is unacceptable. (1/2)
— Rep. Juan Vargas (@RepJuanVargas) March 4, 2019
Virtually all the replies are anti-Israel. Even the Zionist bots from the Jewish Internet Defense Force can’t keep up with the tsunami of indignation.
So, we should appreciate that Ilhan is causing this (bi idhnillah) and hope that she doesn’t backtrack or apologize like she did last time. As I noted before, apologizing only emboldens the bullies and makes them increase the pressure, and that is exactly what happened.
And now, the Democrats, led by Zionist hag Nancy Pelosi are going to issue yet another House resolution denouncing anti-Semitism. This is like the third resolution against anti-Semitism just this year. At this point, I think that’s the bulk of what the US legislature is for: drafting and approving resolution after resolution against anti-Semitism.
What a joke America’s political system really is. But don’t forget to #GetOutTheVote, guys!
So, We Should #StandWithIlhan, Right?
Hold on there.
Giving credit where credit is due is one thing. Standing with Ilhan is something completely different.
Ilhan has proven that on many issues, she advocates positions that are diametrically opposed to Islam. She mocks prophets, makes light of religion generally, is on a crusade for cross dressers, promotes LGBT every chance she gets, is pro-abortion, and on and on.
Just because she has demonstrated one correct stance, principled as it is, doesn’t mean we give her carte blanche support.
This is where we can see how some imams, Muslim community figures, and orgs (like CAIR) manipulate these situations for their own benefit at the expense of the wider community.
Just like we saw with #IStandWithLinda and #IMarchWithLinda, some imams are trotting out #IStandWithIlhan. They opportunistically attach themselves to Omar.
But where were these imams when Omar was loudly demanding cross dressers have the ability to fly drones and bomb Muslims? Where were these imams when Omar was pushing for tranny inclusion in weight lifting competitions? Where were these imams when Omar was mocking `Isa, the Messiah, peace be upon him?
Nothing but silence.
But now, they want to #StandWithIlhan? How convenient.
As I have argued many times before, imams don’t have the luxury of cheer leading progressive figures when those figures promote good stances and then staying silent when those figures promote wrong stances. This is manipulation of the community. This is distorting the community’s sense of right and wrong. This is distortion of Islam.
Let me just spell it out for those who still don’t get it.
The unsuspecting Muslim sees Shaykh So-and-So gushing over Omar today and thinks, “Wow, Sister Ilhan must really be a good Muslim, otherwise why would this pious, God-fearing Shaykh praise her in such an unqualified way?” Then the next day, Omar is at a burlesque show dancing with trannies. This Muslim then thinks, “Well, I guess there is nothing wrong with tranny strip shows. Sister Ilhan supports them and Shaykh So-and-So support Sister Ilhan, so it must be halal for Muslims to support LGBT, etc.”
This is exactly what is happening with the younger Muslim generations. They see these religious scholars and figures endorse activists and politicians and never see them criticizing these activists and politicians. The message that is sent is very clear.
Look, I have no problem with people giving props to Ilhan or these activists when they deserve it. Obviously, that’s what I’m doing in this post. But if you’re going to make a big deal about showing support, you had better also make a big deal about pointing out their mistakes. Otherwise, you are an opportunistic sell-out and deserve to be blasted for it.
And this is the example we have from ulama of the past, who paid dearly for not coming out and praising corrupt sultans. Many of these ulama would go out and publicly denounce the sultan when he committed an injustice or violated the Sharia. This group faced the most severe consequences.
Another group of ulama would just remain silent but they would also not praise the sultan either. This group sometimes would face consequences for their lack of praise but nothing as punitive as the first group.
And then a third group, much smaller, would praise the sultan and simultaneously overlook his injustices and remain silent on them. This group were the sell-outs and, throughout history, other ulama as well as Muslims generally called them out as such.
Today, this third group is tweeting #IStandWithIlhan while remaining silent on her manifold injustices.
