If it hadn’t happened on CNN, who would believe it? A female doctor who spends a good deal of time in Muslim nations says Trump is beloved. Bush also. And not islamophobic. An issue we’ve been wrestling with over the past few days used as a cover for Democrats to hide their antisemitism.
Dr. Qanta Ahmed is quoted as saying,
“One thing the viewers should know, this president and this administration is often castigated as Islamophobic, but I move in the Muslim world — in Egypt, in Oman, in Jordan, in Iraqi Kurdistan — where this president is beloved. This president and the Republican Party going back to George Bush is very dearly held. Today is the anniversary of Halabja, the massacre of 180,000 Kurds at the hands of Saddam Hussein. That only change would [be] because of a Republican president. So it is very important not to lose so much perspective that we start believing our entire government is Islamophobic. That is not the case.”
Will she be back on CNN anytime soon?
AHMED: it is FALLACY to claim the #Trump administration is '#Islamophobic' – On the anniversary of #Halabja and #Anfaal #genocide perpetrated by #SaddamHussein & Iraqi Arab government on Iraqi #Kurds claiming 180,000 lives only ended because of a #Republican @POTUS pic.twitter.com/e6sTT6xz3t
