It's infuriating how ignorant of world history the left is. Despite 7 degrees in sociology they still think history began in 1492.

My home country was occupied for hundreds of years by Arab/African Muslims. Literally centuries longer than any European country occupied the Middle East or Northern Africa.

Arab Muslims originated the trans-African slave trade. The spread of Islam killed hundreds of millions of people.

Parts of Europe was occupied by one of the longest-enduring empires on the planet (The Ottoman Empire) until the end of WW1.


And all we hear about all day is "Islamophobia"... too much time is spent in the west moderating the feelings of this most problematic religious minority.

I just don't understand the Islamophilia on the left. It's literally poison to democracy and freedom. In terms of social attitudes in America the average American Muslim has the same opinions as the hardest sects of evangelical Christians. And WE supposedly have a better-than-educated contingent to help moderate those numbers.

In Britain a majority of British Muslims want homosexuality criminalized again. This, in so-called "secular societies" is troubling. In other parts of western Europe the most regressive attitudes, anti-homosexual hate crimes and anti-semitism is not primarily found "on the right" anymore, but from the growing contingent of Muslims.

France is emptying out of Jews the way the Middle East is of Christians. And the Jews aren't pointing to "neo Nazis" or "nationalists" as the source of their woes. And yet, American and Canadian leftists cheer the spread of the cancer to this hemisphere.


If we can't manage to secularize and make atheists out of the Middle East and North Africa fast enough, the only places that will probably be spared being irreversibly affected by this hijrah in the next 100 years end will be Latin America and East Asia.

Couldn't agree with you more. I will look up his videos on Y/T , thanks.

So where in the article did she trash the US, seems like she was criticizing Trump.

Quote:
The idea — explicitly expressed by this president and enshrined into law by executive order — that people from certain Muslim-majority countries cannot enter this country is not just bad policy; it is a direct threat to liberal democracy. The chants of “Jews will not replace us,” shouted at a rally in Charlottesville in 2017 by white supremacists, whom this president tacitly accepted, are a direct attack on the values of religious freedom central to the founding of our nation.

It’s only a matter of time before Jihad Omar wears her suicide vest to Congress.

Omar is free to criticize the USA, other are also free to criticize her. Any honest person admits the USA has at times failed miserably. But it's fair to ask how a non Muslim non East African immigrant would be treated in Somalia. I doubt one would get elected, especially one highly critical of the nation's history and culture. Would such a person be murdered? Would alcohol and pork be allowed to make immigrants to Somalia more comfortable?

The manic obsession the right has with "the Squad" is what fuels this entire issue and motivates the media to keep reporting about it (and thus sell advertising) and keep manipulating your incredible stupidity. It is diversion and Trump has duped you again. You don't like the messenger so you are inflamed about the message. Trump triggers you 24/7 -- that's what he does best. You should check your ugly prejudices at the door.

If you read the article she offers criticism of her home country and praises our democracy, Iím not seeing the hate America part.
