Muslim Reporter Describes Being Ridiculed At The Texas GOP Convention Republican chairman: 'Would the state party ever condone that? Absolutely not.' By Jason Sickles
The GOP gathering first attracted national attention by fast-tracking a new platform that includes endorsing reparative therapy for gays. Some of the more moderate Republicans in attendance had hoped to address the matter, but the anti-gay topic was never allowed to come up for debate.
Now, a reporter who was covering the convention says she was targeted and taunted because of her Muslim headdress.
Heba Said, a senior at the University of Texas at Arlington, is the opinion editor of the school paper, The Shorthorn. The 22-year-old said she applied for media credentials and attended the convention hoping to share with her readers what it was like to sit in on panel discussions with delegates.
Instead, Said writes, I discovered a cult-like hatred that is simply disgusting. From her report:
As I walked through the halls, people stopped in their tracks and frowned and shook their heads at me. Panelists threw the word Islamist around as if it were perfectly OK, and one man even asked if I felt alone at a meeting. I was referred to as you people and yall Muslims more times than I can count. The worst part was the way delegates looked at me, as if I were something to fear when I approached them.
I did not observe any of this," said Steve Munisteri, Texas GOP chairman. I never heard a single anti-Muslim statement, and I never saw any anti-Muslim activity.
Munisteri said to Yahoo News in an interview that this year's meeting drew 10,000 participants, and that everyone was expected to "treat their fellow delegates and guests with respect and civility.

No doubt she wrote this piece before the convention
Maybe she was there as a liberal? That’s what the black legislators ‘heard’ the Tea Party folks say in DC, even though they never said it.
You would think a reporter would provide some evidence.
“Yahoo News” is a oxymoron.
This sounds like the typical “dirty trick”. The left will do anything to trash conservatives and stay in power.
Her Tribal Headdress ?
I do not believe her.
Nearly all complaints like this, turn out to be lies.
10,000+ comments at Yahoo on an article < 24 hrs old.
and most of them ain’t giving this gal much love
Sue her for libel.
"It is not news that Republicans dont seem to like Muslims."
"It is no wonder that Republicans are so easily associated with Anti-Islam sentiments, the instigation of Islamophobia and outright hatred toward Muslims."
"My heart palpitated with the unnerved feeling I had just from the thought of attending a Republican convention as a veiled Muslim woman."
If I feel I have too many brain cells, I go to Yahoo for a few minutes. I can actually hear my brain cells commit suicide as I scan the headlines on Yahoo.
This is awful. Those people should be beheaded.
Well at least she didn’t get 100 lashes or stoned to death which is what would have happened in the Mideast if a Christian walked down the street with a bible.
No offense to Miss Said but if I see one lone Muslim in a sea of people I might be suspicious too. Looks like a liberal hit piece to bash Texas Republicans. It’s from Yahoo after all. The liberals want Texas’ electoral votes badly. They know if they can get them it’s the ballgame and they will have a virtual lock on the presidency for quite awhile, so the liberal assault will be in full force. How Texas goes, so goes the country......down the drain if the Lone Star state goes to the darkside.
“I could feel their eyes raping me, before their eyes tied me up with ropes and dragged me behind their pickup trucks, while their eyes screamed ‘make her eat pork’! And their eyes did much, much worse than that. It helped that I could read their minds, and interpret what they were thinking as code for anti-Muslim hatred.”
Instead, Said writes, I discovered a cult-like hatred that is simply disgusting. From her report:
Unless she is an exchange student from some distant planet and was isolated from the likes of MSNBC, CNBC and the rest of the MSM, I don't see how her essay could possibly represent any sort of unique "discovery". Dollars-to-donuts says she wrote it before she even set foot through the door.
What her fellow Mohammedans are doing in Iraq right now is truly disgusting.
Well, the islamics declared war on us, moslems support jihad and the destruction of Israel...and the US. What would you expect?
I discovered a cult-like hatred that is simply disgusting.
It's only a reflection of the centuries of hate thrown at Western civilization by the disgusting culture of death...practiced by the mohammedians.
Does she really expect us to tolerate the intolerant???
She has missed out on a quite a career working carnivals with those kinds of mind reading abilities.
It isn’t common dress honey. You would be stared at any place you go dressed like darth vader. Unfortunately, I see nothing you’ve written about how women are treated in your Islamic countries. Beheadings, stonings, acid in the face, being murdered for talking to a male outside your family...Start there first before you get all bent out of shape about being stared at here.
Personally, I don’t care if she is ridiculed. I have no use for muslims. Let her move to Saudi Arabia where she will be appreciated.
Well we wouldnt want to lose the muslim vote ya know.
Notice she isn’t in Saudia Arabia petitioning for women to have the right to vote, or heck even drive.
I hope they frisked her real good, and let the bomb sniffing dogs scrutinize her before letting her in.
Until you publish a video of the event, babycakes, I ain’t buying it.
Excellent. I encourage everyone to make Muslims feel unwanted. I do it regularly. Stare into their eyes until they look away while giving them a look like you are going to tear their heads off. Make them submit.
Absolutely and all you would have to do is visualize the scenario she is describing....
“As I walked through the halls, people stopped in their tracks and frowned and shook their heads at me. Panelists threw the word Islamist around as if it were perfectly OK, and one man even asked if I felt alone at a meeting. I was referred to as you people and yall Muslims more times than I can count. The worst part was the way delegates looked at me, as if I were something to fear when I approached them.”
Can you picture people doing what she described? “People stopped in their tracks”?? So in other words people were walking along, took one look at her and “stopped in their tracks” as one would do if they saw Bigfoot. This woman is either imagining things or she is flat out lying. I tend to believe she is imagining things because SHE is the one who is biased against the GOP. Oh they said the world “Islamist” how horrible! And someone asked her if she felt alone! Oh my, the sheer evil!
“It is not news that Republicans dont seem to like Muslims.”
Heba said what?
No, Heba Said.
I know it’s Heba, but what did she say?
No, no, it’s Heba Said...
Well, you know the routine.
Based on past experience I’m sure she is lying.
Stephen Glass, Jason Blair, scores of waitresses and waiters, college profs, etc. etc.
Sorry lady, but you fit the profile of a liar. You get points for actually attending the convention (assuming you did) but quite frankly I don’t believe a word of this.
Somebody said, “Y’all” in Texas?
Probably just trying to be nice and tell her, “Y’all is leakin’ outta ye car.”
Well, it’s weird that you walk around in a cadaver bag.
According to their Koran, it is permitted (halal) for Muslims to lie to “infidels” if that furthers the cause of spreading Islam. So, no surprises here.
Remember when the MSM sent stereotypical Muslims (beards & burkas) to NASCAR in an attempt to incite “infidels” into being mean to muzzies? Total bust, nothing happened, where’s my story!!?
And if these evil wascally Wepublicans just ignored this Muslimah, they would then be accused of “shunning”.
two of the four hits were about "the disgusted looks" from two days ago. Nothing that I could find about her comments on the Christian school girls and her Islamist fiends.
w/o "the Shorthorn" there were a few more hits but nothing that I could find about her comments on the Christian school girls and her Islamist fiends.
Just another compliant from a fan of the Victims Industry hoping to collect something of value.
Oh, the humanity. Really? Well she can head down to Iraq where her friends from the “Religion of Peace” would behead her and leave her on the side of the road.
An offended Muslim. How rare is that?
I see nothing youve written about how women are treated in your Islamic countries. Beheadings, stonings, acid in the face, being murdered for talking to a male outside your family...Start there first before you get all bent out of shape about being stared at here.
My question is how does she respond to Western Women either being advised or ‘forced’ to put on local Mufti when traveling in ‘her’ country or the fact that Rabbis and Priests are unable to wear their insignia or in some cases ‘tend to their flock’
AND THEY ARE THERE TRYING TO PROTECT THE LOCALS BACKSIDES.
However I do somewhat agree that Western women should wear the local style garb, if for nothing else than to somewhat draw attention away from them.
OF COURSE, they have the same option as YOU do.
If you do not want to be ‘ridiculed’ for your dress, don’t try to stand out from the crowd.
She’s a liar, it’s pretty clear. She’s very pretty, maybe some folks were struck by her beauty. But other that than she’s full of it.
What a complete loser. Why doesn’t she go to iraq to interview those moozlums shooting surrendered prisoners, randomly shooting people in their cars on the highway or beheading people in their houses? moozlums should be ridiculed here and exiled. They only await their opportunity to “moozlum” us and our families.
If its not on video its a lie. Already can tell this is lady has an agenda since she described Islamist...as defined by terrorist sympathizer CAIR.
When you dress like you are a freak — people will look at you like you are a freak.
Take the stupid towel off your noggin — and choose to be an American.
Dirka dirka mohammed jihad!
moozlums should be ridiculed here and exiled. They only await their opportunity to moozlum us and our families.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
If you were to start that ‘movement’ the people in question would be granted ‘amnesty’ by agreeing with us and our interpretation of their fellow countrymen.
YET they refuse to ‘damn’ them for their actions.
Some ‘weird’ people - in general - I have yet to hear ANY so called ‘Muslim’ leaders mutter any sort of ‘apology’ or ‘damnation’ for 9/11.....OTHER than insist a ‘mosque’ be built on the site of the former WTC because ‘muslims’ also died there ...
Only one we are definitely positive about are the ‘doers’....
