Radical Muslim Advises BHO

Who is Dalia Mogahed? Mogahed is a member of President BHO’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. This is a so-called multicultural advisory board. I presume “multicultural” is the defining word of the board. Among Leftists multiculturalism and diversity is to be promoted to the point of submerging the Christian and Anglo-Saxon heritage derived primarily from Britain.

Mogahed is typical of multiculturalists representing Islam. I say that meaning most American-Muslim groups are influenced by either the Muslim Brotherhood or Wahabbi psycho-Islam from Saudi Arabia. The former emphasizes a global Caliphate and the later emphasizes purist Islam from the Mohammed example. The emphasis is marginal in that both rigid Islamic camps strongly advocate much of same Islamic Supremacist propaganda.

Mogahed is the kind of multiculturist described above. She also promotes the West (i.e. America) accept the Muslim practice of Sharia Law. Despite of what Mogahed may tell her listeners, Sharia Law does not promote civil or human rights. Rather Sharia Law promotes the way of Mohammed which is brutal toward those who do not like Mohammed’s way and to Muslims who stray of Sharia’s path.

Why in the world would President Barack Hussein Obama place a person with links to concepts of Islamic despotism contrary to American Liberty and Freedom on a multicultural advisory council to give advice relating to Islam?

ACT! For America wonders that as well. They sent this out to their email list:

Did you realize that "The majority of women around the world associate gender justice, or justice for women, with sharia compliance”?

That’s right, according to Dalia Mogahed, President Obama’s advisor on Muslim affairs, who made this astonishing statement in an interview on a British television show (see story below).

Mogahed has made news before.

She was a member of the U.S. Muslim Engagement Project, which called for “engagement” with the Muslim Brotherhood — the organization that has a 100 year plan for subverting and overthrowing the West.

She teamed up with John Esposito to conduct a poll on Islam, then misrepresented some of the results (some called it “cooking the books”) in order to increase the number of Muslim “moderates.”

What makes Mogahed’s demonstrably untrue assertion about shariah even more disturbing is that she made it in an interview hosted by a member of the radical Islamist organization Hizb ut Tahrir.

Hizb ut Tahrir is committed to the overthrow of democracy and capitalism and the worldwide imposition of shariah Islamic law. The organization has been banned as a terrorist organization in several countries — but remarkably, not here in the United States.

For Mogahed to assert that shariah promotes “gender justice” would be laughable if it weren’t so tragic.

That she has the ear of the White House is yet another chilling reminder of how our nation is being led down the path of forced Islamification that England and Western Europe have already walked.

This is another reason why, over the past few weeks, we have been issuing such an urgent call to action to you, our members. If you have not yet responded to our fall “Call to Action,” there’s still time to help us reach our goal.

There are ample signs that a large percentage of the American people, once adequately informed about the multiple threats of radical Islam, don’t want an America that looks like England.

Help us reach them. Help us educate them. Help us mobilize them. There is time — but we don’t have ten or fifteen years. We need to act NOW, as if our very future depends on it — because it does.


Barack Obama adviser says Sharia Law is misunderstood

President Barack Obama's adviser on Muslim affairs, Dalia Mogahed, has provoked controversy by appearing on a British television show hosted by a member of an extremist group to talk about Sharia Law.

Miss Mogahed, appointed to the President's Council on Faith-Based and Neighbourhood Partnerships, said the Western view of Sharia was "oversimplified" and the majority of women around the world associate it with "gender justice".

The White House adviser made the remarks on a London-based TV discussion programme hosted by Ibtihal Bsis, a member of the extremist Hizb ut Tahrir party.

The group believes in the non-violent destruction of Western democracy and the creation of an Islamic state under Sharia Law across the world.

Miss Mogahed appeared alongside Hizb ut Tahrir's national women's officer, Nazreen Nawaz.

During the 45-minute discussion, on the Islam Channel programme Muslimah Dilemma earlier this week, the two members of the group made repeated attacks on secular "man-made law" and the West's "lethal cocktail of liberty and capitalism".

They called for Sharia Law to be "the source of legislation" and said that women should not be "permitted to hold a position of leadership in government".

Miss Mogahed made no challenge to these demands and said that "promiscuity" and the "breakdown of traditional values" were what Muslims admired least about the West.

She said: "I think the reason so many women support Sharia is because they have a very different understanding of sharia than the common perception in Western media.

"The majority of women around the world associate gender justice, or justice for women, with sharia compliance.

"The portrayal of Sharia has been oversimplified in many cases."

Sharia in its broadest sense is a religious code for living, which decrees such matters as fasting and dressing modestly. However, it has also been interpreted as requiring the separation of men and women.

It also includes the controversial "Hadd offences", crimes with specific penalties set by the Koran and the sayings of the prophet Mohammed. These include death by stoning for adultery and homosexuality and the removal of a hand for theft.

Miss Mogahed admitted that even many Muslims associated Sharia with "maximum criminal punishments" and "laws that... to many people seem unequal to women," but added: "Part of the reason that there is this perception of Sharia is because Sharia is not well understood and Islam as a faith is not well understood."

The video of the broadcast has now been prominently posted on the front page of Hizb ut Tahrir's website.

Miss Mogahed, who was born in Egypt and moved to America at the age of five, is the first veiled Muslim woman to serve in the White House. Her appointment was seen as a sign of the Obama administration's determination to reach out to the Muslim world.

She is also the executive director of the Gallup Center for Muslim Studies, a project which aims to scientifically sample public opinion in the Muslim world.

During this week's broadcast, she described her White House role as "to convey... to the President and other public officials what it is Muslims want."

Wendy Wright, president of Concerned Women for America, said Miss Mogahed was “downplaying” Sharia Law.

“There is a reason sharia has got a bad name and it is how it has been exercised. Regrettably in the US there have been acts of injustice perpetrated against women that are driven by the Sharia-type mindset that women are objects not human beings,” she said.

She cited the example of Muzzammil Hassan, a Buffalo man who ran a cable channel aimed at countering Muslim stereotypes and was charged earlier this year with beheading his wife after she filed for divorce.

“Americans understand by example, it’s not as if we are an ignorant mass of people. Just as we don’t broad brush all Muslims, so should Dalia not downplay the serious nature of sharia law.”
