Linda Sarsour Against Islamophobia!

I salute Linda Sarsour - anybody who is opposed to the propaganda machine against Muslims and Islam will support Linda Sarsour. Linda Sarsour is right to be speaking out against Honor Diaries and Islamophobia. People who are balanced will obviously see issues with Islamophobia and the 'Honor Diaries'.

The article below highlights some of the reasoning why we should support Linda Sarsour on her stance her against the Honor Diaries:

Looks like it's silly season again. A film called Honor Diaries which is discussing the plight of Muslim women in Muslim countries is the topic on the tongues of a few Islamophobes. The topics discussed according to the film synopsis are; forced marriage, female circumcision (which the film makers call female genital mutilation), freedom of movement and education for women.

Interesting choice of subjects for a Western audience.

You just begin to think what in the world is the point of this movie whose executive director is a well known insulter of Islam and provocateur of Muslims, Ayaan Hirsi Ali? Looking to ratchet up the hatred of Muslims AGAIN? Preparing Western mindsets for another war against a Muslim nation AGAIN?

Nobody likes insincere and disingenuous propaganda campaigns against them or their community, right? I mean, the Christian West wouldn't like it if Al Jazeera or Press TV (Iranian TV channel) produced a constant stream of documentaries portraying all Western women as being the victims of pornography and sexual exploitation by big businesses? Western Christians wouldn't like it if these films also presented Western men as drug addicts, alcoholics, porn addicts etc? Or what about those high profile incidents of beastiality and incest in the West of late? Or what about the figure of over 20 million abortions having been performed in the US? Would Western Christians like it if Muslim TV channels began to use such as a propaganda tool to caricature Western Christian societies?

Don't get me wrong, there are issues in both the Muslim world and the Christian world that needs to be addressed. If the film makers of Honor Diaries had the clear intention of helping female victims of abuse in Muslim countries then they wouldn't be hiring a well known insulter of Islam and of Muslims as their executive producer.

Whatever happened to sincere dialogue, letter writing and lobbying of embassies? I guess none of that brings in cash, ratchets up hatred of Muslims and serves the right wing in general!

As for female education, of course Islam promotes the education of females. Don't conflate the practices of ignorant people or people who are unable to afford to send their female children to school as a religious command to prevent females from being educated:

The Importance of Girls’ Education in Islam

As for forced marriage in Islam, here's Mufti Menk on the issue:

As for honour killings, they are not Islamic as highlighted by Sheikh Ahmad Kutty:

“There is no such concept in Islam that is called “honor killing”. Islam holds every soul in high esteem and does not allow any transgression upon it. It does not allow people to take the law in their own hands and administer justice, because doing so will be leading to chaos and lawlessness. Therefore, based on this, Islam does not permit such killings.”

Christians having dreams and converting to Islam:

Invitation to Islam

Jesus taught people to do the Will of God (according to Mark 3:35) in order to become his brothers, mothers or sisters. A Muslim means one who submits to the Will of God. Do you want to become a brother/sister of Jesus? If yes, become a Muslim.
