Reader comment on item: Linda Sarsour, The Left's Latest Star
in response to reader comment: True Jihadies and untrue Jihadies (like true and untrue Muslims)

Submitted by dhimmi no more (United States), Jul 10, 2017 at 08:07

Agree. I believe that Linda Sarsour is both a liar (as there is no way that an Arabic speaker would not know that the word Jihad means Holy War and a Jihadi is a terrorist) and she is also an illiterate

The most alarming fact is that MSM reporters do not research claims anymore So the word Jihad, in the case of the WaPo, becomes this bogus "inner struggle "because Linda Sarsour says so" Well Linda Sarsour is both a liar and illiterate

The real question is: Why does not just the new fascist left but also academia and MSM the likes of the WaPo accept uncritically this nonsense by Linda Sarsour?

The historian Dario Fernandez Morera and the author of "The Myth of Andalusian Paradise" provides a very interesting answer He provides several reasons among them the following:

1. Those in academia are always alarmed when there is a possible paradigm change because their carriers and work and livelihood is linked to another paradigm So in the case of Islam the accepted paradigm is that "Islam is a religion of peace and jihad is really an inner spiritual struggle" This is why academia and those in Islamic studies support Linda Sarsour and her lies

When John Wansbrough wrote his two books where he detaches Islam from al-Hijaz and Muhammad from the Qur'an many members of academia accused him of writing polemics against Islam But did they prove him wrong? The answer is no they did not The latest is a very famous scholar of early Islam complained that Wansbrough's book makes the study of Muhammad's Sira to be really futile and this is not fair But did he refute that Wansbrough is claim? No he did not

Fernandez Morera tells his readers about "The Gouguenheim case" where a scholar tried to prove that the so called Andalusian "convivencia" is not supported by literary as well as archaeological evidence The response of academia, which accepts the paradigm that Muslim Spain was a paradise for non Muslims, was shocking to say the least and it is a cautionary tale for the decline of academia in the West

2. Blatant Christian-phobia by those in academia so the inquisition and the expulsion of Muslims from Spain are addressed but not the massacres and expulsions of Christians and Jews from Muslim Spain Another example is in the case of the Arab invasion of Egypt that the Copts welcomed the Arab invasions because they hated the Greeks. Modern scholarship refuted this claim Still in a famous University in Washington DC students are still taught about the tolerance of the Muslim invaders and the Copts welcomed the invasion of their country!

3. Rich Arabs and Arab countries pay money to Department of Islamic Studies as well as to "Think Tanks" and a reminder of the piper and he who pays the piper

Case in point? A certain Washington DC Think Tank that receives money from Qatar and their efforts on behalf of the terrorist organization the Muslim Brotherhood and the opposition for designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization

4. Last but not least is the "Noble Savage"! I will leave this one to your imagination

Way out? Expose the liars and illiterates and remember that the truth is really pesky because it does not go away
