Florida synagogue to host Reza Aslan, Board member of lobbying group for Islamic Republic of Iran


Can you imagine? This immature,
subversive Aslan is fawned over on every show by everyone — including now even liberal Jews. Nut they ban me from speaking, a proud and fierce Jewess.

Florida synagogue to host Reza Aslan, Board member of lobbying group for Islamic Republic of Iran Jihadwatch, September 9, 2013

Would Temple Judea have hosted Josef Goebbels in 1938?

Reza Aslan is a Board member of the National Iranian American Council (NIAC), which has been established in court as a lobbying group for the Islamic Republic of Iran. Said Michael Rubin:
"Jamal Abdi, NIAC’s policy director, now appears to push aside any
pretense that NIAC is something other than Iran’s lobby. Speaking at the
forthcoming 'Expose AIPAC' conference, Abdi is featured on the 'Training: Constituent Lobbying for Iran' panel. Oops." According to Charles C. Johnson in the Daily Caller: "Iranian state-run media have referred to the National Iranian-American Council (NIAC) since at least 2006 as 'Iran’s lobby' in the U.S." Iranian freedom activist Hassan Daioleslam "documented over a two-year period that NIAC is a front group lobbying on behalf of the Iranian regime." NIAC had to pay him nearly $200,000 in legal fees
after they sued him for defamation over his accusation that they were a
front group for the mullahs, and lost. Yet Aslan remains on their

Also, Aslan has tried to pass off Iran's genocidally-minded outgoing President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as a liberal reformer and has called on the U.S. Government to negotiate with Ahmadinejad himself, as well as with the jihad terror group Hamas. Aslan has even praised the jihad terror group Hizballah
as "the most dynamic political and social organization in Lebanon," as
well as the anti-Semitic, misogynist, Islamic supremacist Muslim Brotherhood, which is dedicated in its own words, according to a captured internal document, to "eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within." Aslan wrote:
"The Muslim Brotherhood will have a significant role to play in
post-Mubarak Egypt. And that is good thing." Millions of Egyptians
obviously disagree.

He has also applauded and called for fascist thuggery to deny the freedom of speech to those he hates.

So why is a synagogue in Florida giving him a platform?

Dr. Reza Aslan, an internationally acclaimed writer and scholar of
religions, is the founder of AslanMedia.com, an online journal for news
and entertainment about the Middle East and the world. Reza Aslan has
degrees in Religions from Santa Clara University, Harvard University,
and the University of California, Santa Barbara, as well as a Master of
Fine Arts from the University of Iowa, where he was named the Truman
Capote Fellow in Fiction. He is a member of the Council on Foreign
Relations, the Los Angeles Institute for the Humanities, and the Pacific
Council on International Policy. He serves on the board of directors of
the Ploughshares Fund, which gives grants for peace and security
issues; Abraham’s Vision, an educational, conflict transformation
organization for Israeli and Palestinian youths; PEN USA, which
champions the rights of writers under siege around the world; and the
Levantine Cultural Center, which builds bridges between Americans and
the Arab/Muslim world through the arts. Aslan’s first book is the
International Bestseller, No god but God: The Origins, Evolution, and
Future of Islam, which has been translated into thirteen languages, and
named one of the 100 most important books .

Also, recalling Aslan's recent arrogant and inaccurate touting of his own credentials on Fox, in praise of his even more inaccurate new book,
I came across this in the Jihad Watch archives yesterday while working
on my own new book. It seems as if Aslan has a long-standing habit of
arrogantly citing his credentials as if they themselves proved what he
was saying to be correct:

REZA ASLAN: There's no such thing as values in Sharia law,
that is what I was trying to explain, it's understood in thousands of
different ways by tens of thousands of different institutions, who
really disagree with each other far more than they disagree with people
of other religions, the values that you bring to Sharia are whatever
values you yourself have, if you are a bigot, misogynist and a violent
person, your interpretation of Sharia will be bigoted, violent and
misogynistic, if you are a democrat and a pluralist and someone who is
peace loving, that's how you'll see the Sharia.

JENNY BROCKIE: Nonie, a response from you?

NONIE DARWISH: This is very evasive – Sharia law is a Malignant law,
it's totally based on the interpretation of the Koran and the Hajid
[sic], and the way Islam and the profit [sic] lived. I don't know
understand why he's white washing the meaning of Sharia – Sharia is a
set of laws…..

REZA ASLAN: I'm a scholar of Sharia, that's why.

Is there anything this intellectual and moral titan is not a scholar of? We know that Reza Aslan lies without any apparent pangs of conscience about the New Testament, people he hates, Israeli "atrocities" (that will go over big at Temple Judea), the extent of Islamic supremacism in U.S. mosques, and about Muhammad's career, and so there is no reason to assume that he will ever acknowledge that he is not the master of some subject or other.


Above tweet by Aslan blamed Robert Spencer and me for the honor killing of Shaima Alawadi, who was murdered by her husband. More profane poison from this terrorist spokesman. Send these tweets to the shul.
