Tlaib is one of four Democrat congresswomen who have risen in prominence through the use of demagogic techniques. She describes herself as a Palestinian first and an American second. She regularly uses Twitter to attack Israel.
Elections bring change
The election wins bring the total number of Muslims elected to office in the States this year to 34. Fifteen of the candidates were first-timers. Among the winners was Safiya Khalid. She won a seat on the Lewiston City Council with nearly 70% of the vote.
Another Somalian refugee to win a city council position is Nadia Mohamed. She won in St Louis Park, Minnesota replacing the outgoing Democrat with 63% of the vote. “When I close my eyes and think of an elected official, I get a different image that’s been in the history books,” she said.
In Virginia, four Muslim women won their races. Democrat Ghazala Hashmi unseated incumbent Republican Glen Sturtevant in a surprise victory to take a State Senate seat. Lisa Zargarpur won the election to the Prince William County School Board. Buta Biberaj became Loudoun County’s new commonwealth’s attorney. Abrar Omeish took a place on the Fairfax County School Board.
The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) is involved with and supportive of these Muslim officials. This is concerning because CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial. It is a branch of Hamas. Hamas is a Palestinian Sunni-Islamic fundamentalist militant organization. They intend genocide of the Jews.
Mohammed Missouri, Director of JetPac, an organization that trains American Muslims to run for office said, “the surge in Muslim candidates running for office in recent years is, in part, a direct response to open expressions of Islamophobia in the U.S., including White House policies that critics see as anti-Muslim.”
Sharing values and principles
Are Muslims superior to non-Muslims? Should women have half the value of men? Do you believe in freedom or submission? Do you believe in personal property or that all things belong to Allah? Are we supportive of the rule of law or is the only way the Path (Sharia)?
The people we elect will decide how we will live. We are electing them to positions of leadership. When we go to the polls, as voters we should consider our choices wisely. Do the candidates hold the same values and principles we do? Aren’t we agreeing to follow their path? There is an Islamization of the American political process in progress.
