American Muslims aim their animosity at Trump, not radical Islam



The striking thing about the series of American Muslim viewpoint articles published yesterday is that we see them complaining vociferously about the election of Donald Trump, while at the same time being completely silent about the dangers of radical Islam. It causes me to think that too many American Muslims have a bigger problem with Donald Trump than they do with radicalized Islam.

On Slate, one Muslim proudly announces that he is not shaving his beard and his hijabi wife will continue to comply with Sharia Law, even though Donald Trump has never asked him to shave anything.

Tuesday was a slow-dawning personalization of the election for me. First came a wave of anxiety at the thought of Trump in the Oval Office. Then came the nausea, realizing what it means for our nation’s moral compass.

What about the moral compass of Islam? The writer talks about fictionally being forced to shave his beard and remove the Hijab. Does he realize that in many Muslim countries people are killed for not wearing a beard, for not wearing a hijab? Does he realize how ironic he sounds?

...we have someone who has made it abundantly clear that he believes Islam is at war with the United States and that regarding your neighbor with suspicion (and perhaps even hostility) is not just a protected right but a moral imperative. Why wouldn’t his supporters lash out at us? Who is protecting us?

Radical Islamists are massacring Americans, and this arrogant, self-absorbed Muslim is worried about himself; last I checked no Muslims were being killed in America for being Muslim.

You can read the same thing in the New York Times, where another Muslim fears for his safety now that Trump has been elected President.

As Mr. Trump’s base rejoices, American Muslim parents are furiously WhatsApping and texting one another about how they’re terrified for their children’s safety. Does my 2-year-old son, Ibrahim, and 3-month-old baby girl, Nusayba, deserve to be bullied at school for simply having a Muslim name? Do their mosques deserves to be vandalized?

Hate crimes against Muslims are quite rare in America, actually 4 times rarer than hate crimes against Jewish people. The writer of the Times piece worries about his baby girl being bullied in school, but doesn't have anything to say about the fate of baby girls in Islam--the child marriages, the rape, the clitorectomies. This double standard makes me wonder if the writer is not only hostile towards Trump but sympathetic to Sharia Law and radical Islam.

In the WaPo, another Islamic writer states

In addition to his blatant misogyny and anti-immigrant xenophobia during his presidential campaign, we have also seen Donald Trump’s political campaign successfully normalize Islamophobia as part of the current national Republican Party platform as it exists today.

How can Donald Trump be Islamophobic? To have a phobia is to have an irrational fear. But people acting in the name of Islam have been murdering tens of thousands of people every year, all over the world. That's not a phobia; that's reality. The writer of the WaPo article didn't stop to examine the causes of Donald Trump's concerns about Islam, because then he would have to address all the horrors of radical Islam. His failure to address such an obvious point makes me wonder if he is sympathetic to it.

Lastly, on Vox, Farhar Tahir, a "foreign policy professional" (whatever that is) in Washington DC says,

For the first time in my very privileged life, I felt a deep sense of fear for myself as a scarf-clad American Muslim woman and the many I love, whether they're Muslims

"Scarf-clad" (funny she didn't use the word hijab) people have nothing to fear in the United States; but they do fear being sold as sex slaves in Muslim countries. It is curious that Farhar would choose to live in a country where she has such fear rather than living in the safe Islamic country she came from.

Sarina Bajwa, another Muslim quoted in Vox, states

As a Muslim, I am hurt and in fear for my physical safety and for that of my loved ones.

As a woman, I am horrified that the first woman candidate has conceded to a man that embodies everything that has hindered women throughout history.

Where do you think Muslim women have greater cause to fear their safety, in America, or the slave markets of Raqqa? In the United States, or the execution platforms of Mosul? Where are Muslim women "hindered" more throughout history, America, or Muslim countries where they can't even walk outside without permission?

When I repeatedly read about American Muslims condemning those of us legitimately concerned about radical Islam, while staying completely silent about radical Islam themselves, it puts the American Muslim community in an unattractive light. If a rogue group of Baptists were murdering people you wouldn't see most Baptists being silent about it. If a movement of evangelicals were committing mass murder you wouldn't see most evangelicals blaming people for wanting evangelicals under closer scrutiny.

But American Muslims are different. Their attitude of victimhood, and entitlement, makes them less sympathetic and even morally suspect.

The Times reports that viewership of football games is way down, by 12% in just one year. There are a number of reasons offered; the horror of head injuries; the lack of patriotism of some players, and the oversaturation of the market with a greater number of games.
But when I looked at the comments in the Times article, the biggest gripe was with the commercials.
