All people of good faith and good will are invited to join the Muslim Coalition of ISAIAH and stand in solidarity with us as we mourn, reflect and fortify in the aftermath of tragedy, violence and terror that’s rocked our community.
The events in Christchurch, New Zealand have saken us. Now is the time for all Minnesotans to gather, pray, lament, and grow stronger together.
The problem in this country is that Arab, Palestinian and Muslims’ suffering and grievances are mostly ignored. Western reporters when they go to the middle east, they use ;Thomas Friedman taxi drivers reporting style . I wonder what would they do when, Uber introduce driverless Cars service oversea.
The art of the apology is to never say “if” or “but”, but to just admit mistakes and move on. Conservatives never apologize, their motto is the three D’s: deny, deceive and distract, and if they do, they usually blame it on the offended victims; sorry if my action/comments offended you. However, liberals can hardly wait to apologize, they believe in redemption and their ego is not as big as conservatives. When liberals apologize they don’t use “if”, they use “but”. They always have something to feel guilty about it, which brings us to Rep. Ilhan Omar‘s long awaited apology. Continue reading WHEN IT COMES TO OUR BLINDE SUPPORT TO ISRAEL, REP. ILHAN OMAR TOOK A KNEE→
‘Phobia‘ is defined as “… an excessive and irrational fear of a specific object, activity or situation” There are so many phobia in America, from the mundane phobia of Olive pits, Fruit seeds, to the feral of foreigners, and natives but clearly the most severe case of phobia in America is Islamophobia and the irrational fear of Islamic Sharia.
‘Sharia‘ is an Arabic word meaning a straight path to follow. According to Dr. Asifa Quraishi-LandesSharia is a general legal framework, “… not a book of status or judicial precedent imposed by a government, and it’s not a set of regulations adjudicated in court.” So many Americans are fearful of Islamic Sharia, which is just a set of general rules that aren’t even imposed by anyone here, though there are anti Sharia laws in ten states in America.
” … I want you to know that I will never apologize for being me, and for being passionate and upset” – coming from a color, Arab woman, you got to love it!
The hysterical reactions to Palestinian-American Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib using the M word, the mother of all cussing, had everyone wondering; was she going to apologise, was this helpful, and how was this going to heat up the new left and democratic party agenda. From Conservatives, liberals, the media, to mosques, churches and pulpits, republicans and democrats, men and women all showed a degree of outrage towards Representative Tlaib.
Why was there such widespread outrage to Rep. Tlaib’s comments that took place in a bar to a group of her supporters, celebrating the first Palestinian Arab, Muslim women elected to Congress? People say worse than that in sports bars and restaurants. This wasn’t on national TV or at the White House. “I’m very passionate for fighting for us … I want to tell all women out there, be yourself, not hold back, don’t think you can’t get passionate and angry,” she insisted, injecting sexism and double standards used to box women into a traditional role and control not just her body but also her mouth.
