Hate Comes to Ohio – Tea Party and Usama Dakdok
The Tea Party have enlisted the services of an Arab (Copt) Islamophobe (Usama Dakdok). Yes, an Arab anti-Muslim bigot who will (no doubt) be blabbering on about how all Muslims are killing machines (better and scarier than terminator!!!).
Erm, if that Islamophobic drivel was true, Mr Usama Dakdok would not be living. The same applies to the ~10 million Coptic Christians in the Arab world. I guess that’s why most folk don’t take Arab Islamophobes seriously
Who is Usama Dakdok?
Usama Dakdok is an Anti-Muslim bigot whom we featured in 2010 due to his crazed Islamophobic ranting. He claimed there is “no good Muslim”, Muslims are “demons”.
He gets WACKIER as he believes Barack Obama is Muslim .
Oh, just for good measure, he’s also a charlatan. He has “translated” the Quran despite possessing no relevant academic credentials and a failure to meet ANY of Von Denffer’s criteria for a translator of the Quran.
It get’s worse still as old Usama is a bit of a salesman too as he has been selling his translation as the only true translation and has suggested his “translation” is the first translation by a Non-Muslim. MANY Non-Muslim translations have been produced prior to Mr Dakdok’s “effort” – George Sale, J Rodwell, AJ Arberry and EH Palmer. 
Tea Party's charlatan
In my brief exchange with Usama Dakdok, after exposing the fact Mr Dakdok does not meet Von Denffer's criteria to translate the Quran, he claimed to have had support from professors, doctors (from Al Azhar university) whilst "translating" the Quran. He even claimed "ex-muslims" from Al Azhar university had helped him too!!!
I asked for names. He supplied no names at all. Nothing but silence. It's amazing how this blog turns the most talkative into mutes...
The man is a charlatan. Sadly, there is a ton of them within the evangelical community.
Christians buying fancy cars for bigots
Arab Islamophobes are never taken seriously, but some (i.e. Shoebat, Saleem, Botros et al) do make cash – quite a substantial amount – through their fertile imaginations and the gullibility of the evangelical Christian community in America.
It looks like old Usama Dakdok is coining it in too:
I've heard reports out of Clay City that at least where Dakdok's car is concerned, he seems to be doing quite well for himself.
