Jihad Jew-hater Rashida Tlaib: There’s Islamophobia in the Democratic Party

In other words, Jews  and Christians who won’t submit.

The very word “Islamophobia” is a fictional construct, as journalist Claire Berlinski explains: “The neologism ‘Islamophobia’ did not simply emerge ex nihilo. It was invented, deliberately, by a Muslim Brotherhood front organization, the International Institute for Islamic Thought, which is based in Northern Virginia….Abdur-Rahman Muhammad, a former member of the IIIT who has renounced the group in disgust, was an eyewitness to the creation of the word. ‘This loathsome term,’ he writes, ‘is nothing more than a thought-terminating cliche conceived in the bowels of Muslim think tanks for the purpose of beating down critics.’

The term “Islamophobia” was designed specifically for the Western mindset of liberal white guilt, stealing the “civil rights” narrative from black Americans and mining the “oppression” Native Americans – even throwing in the specter of the Japanese internment camps during World War II. These are the clubs Islamic supremacists in the West use to beat down their opponents. Islamophobia is the knee-jerk smear thrown at anyone who dares to speak out or push back against the encroaching Sharia, the appeasement of Islamic supremacists demands on the secular marketplace, and the restriction of free speech.

In reality, “Islamophobia” is nothing more than a term that Islamic supremacists use to enforce what they can of Islamic blasphemy laws in the West: in Islamic law, to defame or insult Muhammad or Islam is blasphemy, and in many Muslim countries it’s punishable by death. There are daily reports of death sentences handed down in Muslim countries for perceived insults to Muhammad or Islam.

Tlaib: There’s Islamophobia in the Democratic Party

Islamophobia is “very much” a part of the Democratic and Republican parties, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) said in an interview that aired Sunday.
Tlaib said on Showtime’s “The Circus” that anti-Muslim bias played a big role in last week’s controversy surrounding Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.).
“I know this would be somewhat shocking for some, but I think Islamophobia is very much among the Democratic Party as well as the Republican Party,” said Tlaib. She and Omar are the first Muslim women elected to Congress.
“And I know that’s hard for people to hear, but there’s only been four members of Congress that are of Muslim faith. Three of them currently serve in this institution,” Tlaib said.
“So you think Democrats have some Islamophobia and that’s at the root of some of this consternation?” interviewer Alex Wagner asked in response.
“I think our country’s struggling with it,” Tlaib replied.
Omar came under harsh criticism from other Democrats after she made remarks widely seen as invoking an anti-Semitic dual loyalty trope that accuses Jewish people of being more loyal to Israel than the United States.
It sparked calls for a resolution condemning anti-Semitism, which Democrats began drafting at the beginning of last week. But by the week’s end, after complaints from other members including progressives and lawmakers in the Congressional Black Caucus, the resolution was rewritten to also condemn many other forms of hate, including Islamophobia.
Some Jewish lawmakers were upset with the final resolution, believing it would have been better to focus on a measure simply condemning anti-Semitism. Omar at a Washington forum had said that that pro-Israel advocates “push for allegiance to a foreign country.”
The House adopted the final resolution on Thursday with the support of all Democrats, while 23 Republicans voted against it in protest that it didn’t focus on anti-Semitism in response to Omar.
Omar has stood by her remarks.
Both Tlaib and Omar have faced accusations of anti-Semitism from Republicans over their support for the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement, which is critical of Israel’s treatment of Palestinians. Tlaib is also the first Palestinian-American woman elected to Congress, in addition to being one of the first Muslim women in the institution.
“I feel like Ilhan and I both have been unfairly targeted. I think there have been double standards,” Tlaib said.
Rep. André Carson (D-Ind.) is the only other Muslim lawmaker in Congress. Former Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), who previously held the seat Omar now holds, was the first Muslim elected to Congress in 2006.
Tlaib said in the interview that she was pleased the resolution condemning hate made a nod to Islamophobia.
“Of course I had mixed feelings beforehand. But the fact that we ended up with a resolution that talked about all forms of hate, including anti-Muslim hate, in our country, you know, it felt good. Being one of only three members among 435, I felt a sense of being seen, even for that moment,” Tlaib said.
