Islamic Supremacism @HuffingtonPost: Engy Abdelkader’s #Savage Attack on Human Rights Ads

18
“During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act” — George Orwell

Again we see the deceit and the smear in today’s Huffington Post attack on our public awareness education  campaigns. Apparently our ads are getting in the way of the lies and propaganda of Islamic supremacists. But read the comments and consider that this is the uber-left Huffington Post. With the exception of the trolls, the commentors are overwhelmingly in agreement with us. So the take-away? Our ads are working. Contribute to this campaign here or via paypal. Send your paypal donation to americanfreedomdefense@aol.com.

In this piece, Engy Abdelkader, described as a “Human Rights Attorney,” attacks human rights and the freedom of expression. Abdelkader calls our ad campaign a “well-orchestrated hate campaign to defame and demean American Muslims and their Islamic faith,” as if all American Muslims are jihadists, annihilationists, and misogynists. Abdelkader cannot refute these ads. Abdelkader does not argue about the actual quotes and reality of the ads. Abdelkader instead attacks me and the message. it’s a diversionary tactic to distract from the message.

Abdelkader attacks all of my ads, starting with our very first campaign, which was designed to help Muslims escape dangerous households because they wanted to lead a more Western life. I can tell you that lives were saved. Isn’t that the point of the work of a “human rights attorney”? Muslims who contacted us and our network of aligned organizations (i.e. Former Muslims United) were given help, in some cases a safe house, and freedom. Just ask Rifqa Bary. How can any “human rights attorney” take issue with that?

She goes on to criticize our Islamorealism ads, which state the irrefutable and bloody fact that there had been over 19,250 deadly Islamic attacks since 911. Of course, today that number has ticked up to 20,650, but Abdelkader doesn’t let let the dead bodies stand in the way of her self-righteousness.

Islamorealism
Of course, Abdelkader refers to our ad campaign as “anti-Muslim,” as if every Muslim supports the tens of thousands of acts of jihad or the oppression of subjugation of the sharia. It is Abdelkader who sounds anti-Muslim. My ads oppose jihad and sharia — I want everyone to enjoy individual rights and freedom.

Our pro-Israel ad clearly made the biggest noise, because defending Jews is an incitement to violence and calling jihadists savages is …. offensive to savages. The fact is that any war on innocent civilians is savagery, and the relentless war on the Jews has been a war on innocent civilians since the establishment of Israel. And the savage response to our ads was a pointed reminder of just how anti-semitic the opposition is.

The Huffington Post and major enemedia outlets run Engy Abdelkader’s kind of ad hominem attacks and pro-jihad propaganda all the time, which is why our ads are so necessary. You don’t see Spencer, Ibn Warraq, Bat Ye’or, Darwish, Geller, et al in The Huffington Post, NY Times, LA Times, et al.

The American people are being disarmed with nonsense like this (below).

They should put these #MyJihad ads in Cairo and Karachi, not Chicago and San Francisco. Abdelkader’s quarrel is with those Muslims who are waging violent jihad, not with me. Where is her Huff Po article attacking those devout Muslims?

Cair jihad ad copy

Our #myjihadcampaign is a response to the Hamas-CAIR taqiyya ad campaign (above) obscuring the true nature of jihad. Calling our ads “anti-Muslim” is like saying every German was a nazi. The fact that Abdelkader does just that indicates that that is what she believes. Where is Engy Abdelkader’s resounding condemnation of the religious persecution of Christians, Hindus, Buddhists et al under the sharia? Where is her outrage and rebel yell against the misogyny and honor violence under the sharia? Where is her outrage towards the destruction of churches and Hindu temples in Muslim countries? She is a shameless hypocrite. Human rights attorney, my eye.

Actual quotes from high profile Muslims — just wait until Abdelkader sees our next series of #MyJihad ads.

Abdelkader says this of our latest #IslamicApartheid ads running in response to a vile blood libel campaign that the American Muslims for Palestine group is running.

“This is Islamic apartheid” followed by images of
two blindfolded men about to be executed with the following caption,
“Gay under Islamic law (Sharia).”

The incendiary transit advertisements may differ in wording but the
message is undoubtedly uniform: hatred for Islam and against its
adherents
.

Does Abdelkader say anything about their libel? Muslims are freer in Israel than in most Muslim countries. We respond with truth. Truth is the recognition of reality. Abdelkader is in serious need of a reality check.

So this human rights attorney supports the sharia for gays, women, Jews, Christians, etc.? These ads are accurate, and millions live in abject misery under the sharia. That is the truth — Abdelkader sounds more like an anti-human rights attorney.

Abdelkader delights in the dhimmi Jews and useful leftists who condemn our ads. Those sheep have plagued free men throughout history. They are mere props, puppets — useful for a time. History will not be kind to them. They are the subject of my column tomorrow at WND. But they are of no consequence.

Devout Muslims are waging jihad in every corner of the world and terrorizing non-Muslims and secular Muslims who are living under the boot of sharia. If Abdelkader really means to “redefine” the ummah, start there.

Hey, Engy, the truth will set you free.

Muslims Redefining Community
Engy Abdelkader,  Human Rights Attorney, Huffington Post

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” — Martin Luther King, Jr.

Sometimes expressions of community manifest at unexpected yet necessary moments.

Illustrative is the American response to the recent proliferation of
anti-Muslim hate advertisements on government owned public transit
systems in cities around the country.

From San Francisco to Washington, D.C. to Detroit to Chicago to New
York, daily commuters have confronted a well-orchestrated hate campaign
to defame and demean American Muslims and their Islamic faith
:

“Leaving Islam? Fatwa on your head? Is your family threatening you? Got Questions? Get Answers”
“19,250 deadly ISLAMIC attacks since 9/11. Its not Islamophobia, its Islamorealism”
“In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Defeat Jihad. Support Israel.”
The most recently submitted ad by anti-Muslim hate activist Pamela
Geller’s American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) — behind all of the
ads above — reads, “This is Islamic apartheid” followed by images of
two blindfolded men about to be executed with the following caption,
“Gay under Islamic law (Sharia).”

The incendiary transit advertisements may differ in wording but the
message is undoubtedly uniform: hatred for Islam and against its
adherents.

This unfortunate messaging has garnered considerable media attention
while also culminating in First Amendment litigation in at least three
distinct jurisdictions — Washington, D.C., Detroit, Michigan and New
York City — when well-meaning transit authorities rejected the ads,
citing likely stigmatic effects upon American Muslims in some instances
and national security concerns in others.

Not always as prominently highlighted, however, is the larger U.S.
community response rejecting the denigration of any faith group with
messages underscoring the significance of peace and pluralism.

Consider, for instance, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation
Agency (“Muni”) system’s response to the ads. Its Chairman released a
public statement condemning the ads as lacking “value in facilitating
constructive dialogue or advancing the cause of peace and justice.”

Moreover, Muni donated the ad proceeds to the San Francisco Human
Rights Commission to further constructive educational activities, and in
an unprecedented move, Muni placed its own counter-ads on San Francisco
buses condemning the AFDI ads next to which they appeared.

Significantly, Muni’s initiative set the bar that community advocates would request their respective transit officials to meet.

In addition to such official speech, perhaps the most innovative and
arguably talked about response to AFDI’s hate ads was a peaceful Twitter
campaign, launched by American Muslims, with the hash tag
“#MySubwayAd.”

Representative tweets include:

“In NYC we speak 140 languages and hate isn’t one of them.”

“In any subway you ride, anywhere in the world, may it be a one way journey from fear to love and ignorance to light.”

“We all are the same. Keep love going. Sofia, age 4.”

“Hatred won’t ever work as a solution, but it will always be a part of the problem. Don’t fight hate with hate.”

By launching such a campaign to counter the advertisements’ hateful
message, the minority Muslim community demonstrated courage and
initiative while concurrently undermining entrenched stereotypes
concerning Muslim anger, intolerance and violence. Further, Muslims
employed “good speech” effectively in the proverbial marketplace of
ideas to morally defeat a message of division and hate, engaging in an
important process of self-empowerment and community education.

Finally, the interfaith response, by Christians and Jews alike, was nothing short of tremendous.

The Anti-Defamation League publicly characterized the “Savages” ad,
for instance, as “offensive and inflammatory,” while elaborating, “AFDI
presents itself as a pro-Israel group. Our sense is that it’s just a
mischaracterization of who they are. They are an anti-Muslim activist
group, and you don’t have to be anti-Muslim to be pro-Israel.”

Notably, Rabbis for Human Rights – North America and the Christian
group Sojourners launched respective counter-ad campaigns. The ad by
Rabbis for Human Rights, which ran near AFDI’s ad, says, “In the choice
between love and hate, choose love. Help stop bigotry against our
Muslim neighbors.” The Sojourners ad simply says, “Love your Muslim
neighbors.”

Both ads initially ran in NYC’s subway system as did another
counter-ad by another Christian group, United Methodist Women, which
read, “Hate speech is not civilized. Support peace in word and deed.”

Also in New York, the Commission of Human Rights worked to counter
the anti-Muslim subway ads that tout the Big Apple’s diversity. The
billboard features a red apple with a map of the world that looks like
bites. It reads: “From many countries, one city.”

The interfaith initiatives are significant to strengthening community
relationships and in rejecting the extremist messages of anti-hate
groups domestically.

But the ripple effect has international consequence as well.

One of al Qaeda’s greatest recruitment and propaganda tools is the
assertion that the West is at war with Islam and Muslims — an argument
that is strengthened every day by those who suggest all Muslims are
terrorists and all those practicing Islam are jeopardizing U.S.
security. Interfaith and other community initiatives, such as those
described above, directly undermine al Qaeda’s false assertions.

Of course, none of this would have been possible without a community
of good conscience committed in its stance against bigotry.

In truth, the censorship and suppression of objectionable hate speech
is a natural knee-jerk reaction particularly by those targeted. But
sometimes, the unintended consequence of such a response is the
transformation of hate speech perpetrators like Pam Geller into victims
of government censorship, deprived of one’s First Amendment rights.
Perversely, the perpetrator becomes the victim.

Perhaps, it is preferable to allow the hate advertisements to stand
(no matter how painful and hurtful the message) while seizing the moment
to educate. To this end, it bears noting that following the placement
of the hate ads, FOX News was forced to disavow the subway initiative
describing it as “inflammatory” and “anti-Muslim.” This is remarkable
because the anti-Muslims activists responsible for the placards are
frequent favorites on the network. Arguably, the hate placards serve an
educative purpose concerning the perverse values of those behind them.

Often, when Muslims in the U.S. reference “the community,” they are
alluding to fellow co-religionists. Perhaps there is a silver lining to
the anti-Muslim hate ads: an opportunity to redefine the traditional
parameters of that reference to encompass so many more.
