Skip to comments.I am Muslim and Republican – and was attacked by people in my party

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

I have no need of Muslims of any stripe, period!!
Reject violence, condemn those who are and throw them out of your “religion” and work toward changing moozlums into civilized people, respecting others...and then we’ll talk. Until then, you are the enemy of all.
She wasn't there about Benghazi. She was there as a covert Musloid agent.
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
Hannity’s show, round 2:
Answer one question Saba Ahmed: Does Israel have the right to exist?
See my #15
Muslims who are Republicans should thank Western civilization for their opportunity to participate freely in politics. They should also convert to Christianity, and abandon their evil religion. But short of that they should quit whining about the suspicions non Islamic peoples have towards Islam and its zombies.
Caspar, the “friendly” ghost, always scares the crap out of people at first...until he proves he’s “friendly”.
When you share the predominant ideology/religion as the sworn enemy of the USA, then why would you even expect open arms, hugs, and kisses from Americans?
You may be a “good” muslim, but you brethren are demonstrating to the world that it exudes evil, what do you expect? Most of us re way too busy to sit around and explore the finite and minute differences between the “good” Muslims, and the “bad” Muslims. It’s up to you and your brethren to demonstrate your demeanor through words, and more importantly, through actions, why we should make any exceptions. Perception is reality!
I don’t believe her.
Words are words. I am interested in seeing the actions of ‘peaceful’ muslims in resisting the head choppers. What has she done to stop the bloody rampages in every corner of the globe?
but but,, She’s a Redskin fan. (maybe)
If she’s a practicing Muslim, that also means she practices Taqqiyah.
Which means she’s a liar.
“Same here. Seems to be a pattern developing. “
Yep. She explains it by saying, “I vote the person, not the party.”
Poor little doe-eyed Muslimah shill gets punked by evil “infidel” Brigitte Gabriel. It is to laugh!
“By their fruits ye shall know them.”
I know a lot of Muslim doctors who are wonderful people; they are not Islamists.
Keep chasing people into the arms of the Democrats.... good way to win elections./s
Inbred pedophile worshipping misogynists aka mozlums are not welcome
A little more accurate
Holy cow! That was incredible! Thank you, Chode.
Ping to muzzie skank at Heritage Forum...
In other words...give up being a muslim. Oh, they'll behead you?? Imagine that...that so called wonderful religion.
Thanks for the vid. Made me feel good. btw who was the smirking jackass on the far left?
It's in their book .. hell, it's the very *core* of their evil screed, it's literal raison d'etre.
The prophet Mohammad killed entire villages of Jews, attacked caravans like a terrorist and was a pedophile. Any believing Muslim has their mind filled with evil. I will give zero respect, aid, comfort or quarter to any Muslim.
Thank You for that affirmation!
I KNEW it wasn’t my imagination! :-)
Seriously, what the heck is Newt thinking? Or, is he?
They also are known to habitually ride unicorns.
Same here, no need at all.
I have never been in a political gathering where folks felt compelled to discuss their faith at all. Catholics, protestants, jews, Mormons generally do not make a point of discussing their religion when working in a civil forum. So why does she feel compelled to try to force people to accept hers?
We can be pro-life, fiscal conservatives without having to talk about What would Jesus do?
I did not get past the first lie in paragraph one.

Not only is she a "family friend" of the convicted Muslim terrorist - but she showed her support for him after the fact by attending his hearing and making public statements in his defense. Here from the Oregonian (article linked in this thread's article) is a photo of the cabal:
"Steven T. Wax, U.S. Federal Public Defender for the District of Oregon,
Kayse Jama, a Somali community member and Saba Ahmed, a friend of
Mohamed Osman Mohamud's family, leave the Mark O. Hatfield U.S.
Courthouse on Monday after the hearing for Mohamud."
I’m guessing that Newt has spoken to Grover Al Norquist on many occasions.
no such thing as moderate Islam
