Here is the "friendly face" that the devils of radical Islam want the North American public to fall for. Can you say "figurehead"? I knew you could.

I'm sure the fanatic muslims don't care one bit for her attitude towards womens dress and appearance. If the burkha and scarves are supposed to hide the womens appearance, do you think they allow the scarves and what not to have flowers or other designs on them that attract attention? I think not.

She must be one of those good "moderate" moslems. What? There are no moderate moslems because there is no "moderate" koran? Ahhhh....

ISNA elected an imam from Sudan trained at Al-Azhar University as vice-president at the same time, presumably to make the decisions for her to rubberstamp while she plays the PR role.

What would make you think this is a radical Islamic organization? "Radical" Islamic organizations are groups like alQaeda... There's a difference.

When you paint all Muslim organizations with the same brush, it seems you're trying to gin up hatred for the United States. That's a mistake.

Uh oh - she's showing her face in a blatant display of sexual immorality.

When do the men grab her, bury her up to her neck in dirt and stone her for this blasphemy against the prophet? (piss be upon him)

I do not from your infidel country. But, I work here, sleep here, enjoy your freedoms and will indoctrinate your children to our ways. And if they do not convert as I have, I will have their names, their family's names and where they live.

You will submit. Look at Connecticut. That is where I am.

no it isn't....
until the moderates remove the radicals from their midst, the radicals are out to kill and the moderate are out to protect the killers. They must be profiled as one until the moderates prove different, and the radicals are tuned out. I know not then if I will still be able to believe and trust the moderates after their show of 'we don't share in the blame, game', played by the moderates each and every day.

Islamic Society of North America is not a moderate group, though they try to pretend to be.

Most muslims follow the koran as christians follow the Bible: they ignore the stuff they don't like and highlite the stuff they do.

They may not be alQaeda, but they're not moderates. They just pretend to be like CAIR.

She's on Fox News now... and she scares me.

She's another Moderate Muslim who refuses to denounce the terror activities of the Islamofascists and wants me to submit. I don't think so.

Here is the "friendly face" that the devils of radical Islam want the
North American public to fall for. Can you say "figurehead"?


Give Al Rantel of KABC (790AM) in Los Angeles five minutes of
interview time with her.
I yet to hear him fail to "unveil" "Moderate Muslims" by gently and
calmly asking them what they truly believe and what their end-goals are.

But I suspect they are learning to be more Clintonian in their answers
And have told their fellow-congregants to dismiss any of the PR
appearances they make if they don't explicitly say they want
Israel blown of the map and to impose Shari'ah law on the USA.

She looks so freaking evil it's not funny - why any woman would want to cover her head and join a cult that hates WOMEN and kills women - even when women get raped - you know, the honor killings - is beyond me.

I love it how the libs speak of how hard women have it here in the United States - they should try living as a female in the Moslem world - then we'll talk.

A female convert to Islam? One must question her intellect.
One must also question if she was forced to be circumcised?

"Most muslims follow the koran as christians follow the Bible: they ignore the stuff they don't like and highlite the stuff they do."

All it takes is a religious revival for them to begin killing.

Notice how many people refer to terrorists after the fact as "suddenly getting religious"?
