Hamed Abdel-Samad to Glamour Magazine: “Congratulations! The Self-Empowerment Of Political Islam Advances, With The Support Of The Left And Its Feminists!”

In a Facebook post today, Hamed Abdel-Samad slammed “Glamour” magazine for naming Linda Sarsour “woman of the year”.
Original translation of his post:

A woman in America has just been named Woman of the Year by Glamour magazine for organizing a march against Donald Trump last year.

The woman is called Linda Sarsour, she wants to introduce parts of Sharia law in America, and claims that the system in Saudi Arabia is more humane for women than the Western system.

Not only that. She massively attacked the human rights activist Ayan Hirsi-Ali because she had criticized Islam’s treatment of women. About Ali, Sarsour said,”I wish I could take her vagina away. Women like that don’t deserve to be women.”

Incidentally, Sarsour, who calls herself a feminist, was the initiator of the campaign “Headscarf means empowerment of women”, which has now also gained a foothold in Europe.

Congratulations, the self-empowerment of political Islam advances, with the friendly support of the left and its feminists!

The question is now: Why should one have compassion for a culture that no longer knows where it stands and that voluntarily gives itself up?

Upon visiting their website, we found that it doesn’t end there: Glamour Magazine also thought the “Hijab Barbie” deserves an award.

Because nothing is as empowering to little girls as teaching them they must hide their hair and bodies:

ICNA does dawa in Canada while promoting classic islamic dogma and much more of concern.

This photo was sent to me by a reader (I’ll let her identify herself if she wishes to be known) and she asks whether or not this organization, ICNA, is the same organization as ISNA that recently had its charitable status revoked.

Blazing Cat Fur offers this story which shows what they are all about despite their benign sounding bus adverts here.

ICNA as I understand, and its parent group, Jamat-e-Islami (South Asian islamic movement based in Pakistan) are both front groups for the Muslim Brotherhood. Jamat-e-Islami is also the group that orchestrates attacks against Indian-controlled Kashmir and Jammu.

C.B. Sashenka did some research on this group and wrote the following for us:

Jamaat-e-Islami, a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood based in Pakistan (and outlawed in Bangledesh from participating in elections for opposing the secular constitution), is the parent group of ICNA – whose official 2010 handbook describes a 5-tiered strategy to establish a “united Islamic state, governed by an elected caliphate in accordance with the laws of sharia.” AND, in the 1991 Muslim Brotherhood, ICNA and ISNA are listed as front groups for the US Muslim Brotherhood.

Jamaat-e-Islami, a political organization that actively contests the legitimacy of India’s governance over the state of Jammu and Kashmir, through Hizbul Mujahideen, which is listed as a terrorist entity by the Council of the EU and is declared a banned terrorist organization by the Government of India.

Now, regarding ISNA, The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has just recently revoked the charitable registration of the ISNA Development Foundation, a Mississauga-based charity (Ontario). ISNA had entered into a funding arrangement with the Kashmiri Canadian Council/Kashmiri Relief Fund of Canada (KCC/KRFC), to send funds to a Pakistan-based non-governmental organization named the Relief Organization for Kashmiri Muslims (ROKM). It just so happens, that ROKM is the charitable arm of Jamaat-e-Islami.
