Earlier this year, I attended an event with former House speaker Newt Gingrich, despite knowing of his stereotypical attitude towards Muslims. I realized then the power of one voice to change people's prejudices and how rarely people like me use ours: I was the first Muslimah to whom he had ever spoken.
Yes, I am Muslim, and I am a Republican and that's why I was at the Heritage Foundation panel on Benghazi last month, where I asked the now-infamous question about how conservatives deal with the vast majority of people of my faith who are peaceful. Americans don't expect minorities especially Muslims to be Republicans, and it happens often in conservative circles that I am the only Muslim woman in the audience.
I became Republican because I felt that my Islamic values pro-life, pro-traditional family, pro-business, pro-trade aligned best with the Republican party platform. I identified as a Democrat for several years when I was younger, but found it hard to defend liberal values as they were so often in conflict with my deeply-held beliefs.
Though I have been a Republican for a long time and despite having had a tough time with my fellow Republicans in Oregon, where I lived until 2012 I joined the Washington DC Republican Party earlier this year. They have all been kind and welcoming to me at their meetings, events and fundraisers, and I have made good friends in the GOP.
So the personal attacks by conservatives after my question at the Heritage event went viral came as somewhat of a surprise though the support from the Republicans who reached out to me did not. As one of the few lobbyists among the 10,000 on Capitol Hill who is a practicing Muslim, I regularly

The great bulk of Germans were peaceful people. The Nazis were never in the majority. They killed millions of people. The great bulk of the Soviets were not party members. They were peaceful people. They killed even more people. The great bulk of the Chinese were never Maoists. Yet Mao (and Pol Pot) killed millions. The great bulk of “peaceful” Muslims are irrelevant. They are enablers who enable the more animated among them to carry out murders. So, cry me a river. (Oh, and don’t call yourself a Republican. I have a Lesbian cousin who has never voted for a Republican who claims she’s a Republican.)
Chris Plante of WMAL in DC, was moderator, and played tapes of the event. She was treated fairly and courteously by everyone, but corrected promptly by Brigitte Gabriel, a Lebanese Christian, for lying and exaggerating, as a muzzie shill. The tapes are available on YT:
They are busy molling their way way into every American institution to subvert them. Her particular target was the Republican party. Amazing they caught on to her.
I don’t have a link, but I remember reading that this particular individual was a “plant” at the Heritage Meeting, and that she is connected to an islamic organization that is certainly NOT “Republican”.
It’s just a memory i have of the incident, so i welcome correction if I am wrong about it.
here’s the raw video... judge for yourself, you’ll know where i stand on the matter
