AARP all in for Islamic supremacism
AARP’s most recent magazine features an article “The Paradox of Prayer,” by Bill Newcott.
The spread on the opening two pages of the paper magazine showcases individuals of different faiths, with large photographs of each of them. (The online version duplicates the article and also has a video featuring the people highlighted in the paper production.)
The first picture in the series is of Linda Sarsour.
Not only does AARP place a Muslim in the number one photo position, but by selecting Sarsour, they legitimize an Islamic supremacist, terrorist sympathizing, Jew hater.
As to the order of the photographs, one would think the religions represented would be presented in a logical sequence – that is, by their percentage in the United States population (not to mention religions that reflect our Judeo-Christian values).
Instead, AARP appears eager to prove how multicultural and egalitarian they are by putting a photograph of a Muslim first.
And perhaps that may not seem like a big deal to a lot of people. But it is.
It’s an example of the litany of ways we are bombarded with the normalization of a “religion” that teaches hate and world domination.
But it is not just the photo placement that is of concern. The person in the photo is even more troubling.
Palestinian-American Linda Sarsour is a Jew-hating Hamas supporter and frequent visitor to the White House. Among other things, she champions the demise of Israel, has stated that “nothing is creepier than Zionism” (which she equates with racism), believes the underwear bomber was a CIA plant, has gone on record to defend terrorists, cries Islamophobia every chance she gets (drawing analogies between this fictitious mental illness and “racism” and “genocide”), and as a cherry on the sundae, claims to be an “oppressed” victim of “white male privilege.”
Meanwhile, among the eight photographs in the spread on the first two pages, I saw no one Jewish. At least not identifiably so.
I turned the page. There I found four more photographs. The third was a rabbi. The fourth and final photograph, an imam. In this way, Muslims open and close the photographic display.
Once again, it is not just the order or the quantity (Muslims comprising one-sixth of the photos, even though they comprise about 1% of the U.S. population). It is also the subject matter.
Because the last photo is not just any imam. Johari Abdul-Malik is the imam for the Dal Al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia. To give you a flavor for this mosque, Abdul-Malik’s predecessor was jihadist Anwar al-Awlaki.
Abdul-“it-is-better-to-be-a-Muslim…than-to-be-a-kaffir-under-any-conditions”-Malik certainly had some big shoes to fill. And he appears to be doing his level best to fill them. A convert to Islam, his background is riddled with direct associations with terror. The mosque is considered a front for Hamas operating in the United States and it has churned out some notable terrorists. And of course, no terrorist-sympathizing Muslim’s resume would be complete without being rabidly anti-Israel/Jew.
Which he is.
But Newcott seemed ignorant to all of that. Instead, he was quite taken by the Dar Al-Hijrah mosque, writing:
…as I stood in the large assembly hall at Dar Al-Hijrah mosque in northern Virginia, I had to admit to myself that the call to afternoon prayer – a single, trumpetlike singing voice that filled the room – was distractingly exotic. At first it seemed like a random wail, but soon the almost miraculous artistry of the prayer leader’s song was unmistakable. As he sang, about 30 men lined up and faced the eastern wall, toward Mecca, half a world away.
Ah, yes. The exoticism of it all, what with the “miraculous artistry” and the imagined world of Mecca. Never mind the “Allahu Akbar” part of the prayer or the murderous hatred spewed in the Quran. It’s the miraculous and exotic voices that count.
Newcott is either unaware or doesn’t care that he’s romanticizing evil wrapped up in the sound of a melodious wail.
So of all the Muslims they could have chosen for this article on prayer, Newcott chose not one, but two. And both are terrorist sympathizers. I guess it’s hard to find that ever-elusive moderate Muslim. Unless these two haters are what pass for that these days.
I hope readers will join me in educating AARP.
