Should a member of a Muslim Brotherhood linked group really be contributing to a report that attempts to silence the very researchers who have been closely tracking the organization? Would the Center for American Progress allow a member of a group related to the KKK to contribute to a similar report?
Wajahat Ali’s co-authorship of a report by a left-wing think tank is even more perverse as he also claims that the left hates Muslims because they “have certain beliefs contradictory to radical feminist and gay ideologies.”
So according to one of the co-authors of its own report, the Center is also guilty of Islamophobia, now that Islamophobia has been further defined down to mean people who believe in women’s rights and gay rights.
Wajahat Ali’s extremism discredits the report that he played a role in authoring, and proves that the Center for American Progress is actually helping extremists silence the moderates, while acting as water-boys for the Jihad.
Last year, Wajahat Ali published a third-party article on his blog dealing with police shootings, Islamophobia and Israel’s resistance to Islamic terrorism in the Gaza that began with the quote: “You will kill 10 of our men, and we will kill 1 of yours, and in the end it will be you who tire of it.”
After the inauguration, Ali warned that Obama; “must at the very least interact with democratically elected Muslim governments and representatives, such as Hamas and Mahmoud Ahmadinijad of Iran” and added that “a wholesale demonization and rejection of Islamic based governments and political groups is an affront to the Muslims who elected them.”
Obama’s choice of Cairo also did not meet with Ali’s approval. Why couldn’t he have chosen Turkey, Ali wondered, with its “successful marriage of secular democracy and Islam.” He then went on to praise the AKP, which ruthlessly suppresses the secular opposition, massacres civilians and supports terrorism.
Ali denounced the “brutal U.S. foreign policy” which “has killed thousands of innocents” and the “dangerously belligerent offensive in Pakistan and Afghanistan.” and accused the Bush Administration of “tone-deaf moral vacancy” for affirming Israel’s right to self-defense and agreeing “that the onus is on Hamas to renew the truce.”
But where is all that anger in Wajahat Ali’s own private “Hate Inc.” really coming from? Ali was born in California and it is doubtful that he ever set foot in any of the places that he is so angry about. America has been good to him, rewarding him with two careers, as a lawyer and a playwright, despite his family’s history of criminal activities in this country.
This is the paradox of so many Muslims in America who are successful, but deeply resentful. Faisal Shazhad, Nidal Hasan, Naveed Haq and so many others had degrees and successful careers in front of them. They were not oppressed, but they were unable to leave their hatred behind.
The same is sadly true of Wajahat Ali, who with the backing of a liberal organization, participates in a campaign of hate against Jews, moderate Muslims and anyone else who runs afoul of the Brotherhood agenda. “Fear Inc.” is as much an expression of that anger as a car bomb in Times Square.
