The great unopened Diet Coke can controversy

Muslims are  slaughtering men, women, and children all over the Mid-East and threatening those in the U.S. who dare draw Mohammed.  Because they are victims of Zionism, the International Joooooish Conspiracy, oppression, crusaders, Americans, Satan.  But back in the U.S., high in the sky, another professional Muslim victim was reduced to "tears of humiliation" because a United Airlines flight attendant brought her a pre-opened can of Diet Coke, because that's how airlines hand out the free stuff.  It's cheaper for them.  Her neighbor in the next seat paid full price for an unopened can of beer.  So now Tahera Ahmad is whining all over the internet poor thing claiming discrimination because of the difference in serving liquid refreshments.  Boo!  Hoo! 

Tahera Ahmad  is a professional female Muslim chaplain at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois just outside of Chicago where "Currently she serves as the Director of Interfaith Engagement and Associate Chaplain at Northwestern University."  In this capacity she "is a passionate advocate for social justice and works with young adults in the interfaith movement on artistic and athletic projects to help develop a balanced faith identity in a diverse global world." 

Ahmad, who has attended Muslim holiday Ramadan festivities at the White House, was also honored at the White House last year during Women's History Month.  But wait, there's more!

But this wasn't Ahmad's first trip to the White House.

She previously attended a Ramadan dinner hosted by President Barack Obama. And in the last two years she also has visited four cities in Afghanistan and worked with Secretary of State John Kerry on the State Department’s Office of Faith-Based Community Initiatives.

“She’s a rock star, what can I say,” University Chaplain Timothy Stevens says of Ahmad, one of the few female Muslim university chaplains in the nation.

Ahmad earned even more attention last year when she became the first woman to recite the Quran at the Islamic Society of North America convention in Washington, D.C., the largest Muslim gathering in the country. Her recitation sparked outrage among some conservatives — women are barred from reciting the Quran in public, in part, Ahmad says, because of a fear that a woman’s voice could fill men with lust.

Ahmad says she accepted the invitation to read from the Muslim scripture not out of ego or self-promotion but rather to meet a sense of spiritual responsibility on an issue of social justice.

A special, unique snowflake indeed  one who should get a free, unopened can of Diet Coke for "hygienic reasons"just like the average Joe who paid for his brew.  And of course, her version of the event is Truth!

Herewith some more unfun facts of her concept of Ahmad passionately advocating for social justice with young adults in the interfaith sphere.

When hate-filled Muslim students and their hate-filled enablers at Northwestern brought up a motion to impose boycott, divestment, and sanctions against Israel, her interfaith voice of social justice and reason was not heard.  That's because she didn't say anything opposing this vile action.  Her glaring silence was her assent.

Ahmad's idea of "a balanced faith identity in a diverse global world" is to ban speakers who don't agree with her faith identity, most notably Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a former Muslim who courageously speaks out against the dangers of Islam.  As Daniel Greenfield noted:

Meanwhile Tahera Ahmad was pushing a boycott of Ayaan Hirsi Ali by retweeting a call that she not be honored at Brandeis.

Ali is a woman who genuinely suffered and overcame more serious challenges than a lack of Diet Coke on a plane.

Here are some of the challenges that Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Tahera Ahmad overcame in their lives.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali – was subjected to female genital mutilation

Tahera Ahmad – didn’t get a diet coke on a plane

Ayaan Hirsi Ali – realized that the religion she had been raised in preached violence and oppression leading her to transform her understanding of her life

Tahera Ahmad – didn’t get a diet coke on a plane

Ayaan Hirsi Ali – faced multiple death threats

Tahera Ahmad – didn’t get a diet coke on a plane

United Airlines, you have my thanks.  I will certainly choose your airline knowing you take extra security precautions.  Don't back down!  And you can pre-open my can of pop (this is Chicago; soda has ice cream) without any fear of public complaints from me.
