Muslim Activist calls Lesbian Jew out on her ignorance of Sharia law

Sally Kohn: Liberal political commentator

I would describe Sally Kohn as a well-meaning but ignorant liberal political commentator. ?She reminds me of a line in the TV show,” Some mothers do Ave Em.” ?One character asks the mother of the main character Frank Spencer, “What would happen if you gave someone who was not very clever, lots of praise and confidence in themselves?” ?The audience, of course, knows exactly what happens, because that is exactly what Frank Spencer’s mother has done.

In the case of Sally Kohn ?she has not only convinced herself that she knows what she is talking about, she has convinced mainstream media as well. Liberal Media are eager to have a lesbian Jew on their show because she has the right kinds of opinions. Unfortunately what she lacks, are the facts to back up her opinions about Sharia law. On paper, she looks really good as she is an American lawyer.

Political commentator Sally Kohn has made several statements regarding sharia law, which were not only offensive but dangerous. In using her voice to propagate this liberal apologist position, she is doing a great disservice to progressive reform-minded Muslims like myself. Her words are an affront to me, a female Muslim activist, as I have made it my life?s mission to educate others on this topic and to wrestle back my religion from the clutches of extremists who wish to make sharia the law of the land. And I would be happy to debate her on this topic.

The Father of Chemical Weapons

Fritz Haber is One of the Most Important and Controversial Scientists of the 20th Century

How many chemists have been the subject of multiple plays, television documentaries, and graphic novels? How many scientists can report that their discoveries have helped feed billions? Or maimed millions? Haber has been called many things: scientific genius, war criminal, Jew, husband and father, and friend and colleague. Here we look at the many sides of the man who oversaw the first chlorine gas attack of World War I.

SCIENTIFIC GENIUS

At the turn of the 20th century, humanity faced the prospect of incredible famine. One concerned chemist, William Crookes, predicted in 1898 that ?millions will starve to death due to lack of nitrogen fertilizer for plant growth.? Nitrogen was abundant in the air, but it was out of reach for those who wanted it for industrial-scale fertilizer production. Fritz Haber, though, put his mind toward harnessing it to make fertilizer at a volume that could help feed Earth?s growing population.

Some mix of Haber?s vast intellect?he was already an accomplished electrochemist in Karlsruhe, Germany?and his appreciation of applied science?he spent the early part of his career working in his father?s dye business as well as at an alcohol distillery, a cellulose factory, and an ammonia-soda factory?helped him invent a straightforward strategy for nitrogen fixation. The achievement garnered Haber the 1918 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Although his strategy paved the way for making fertilizer from air, Carl Bosch made the discovery workable on an industrial scale by replacing the expensive osmium or uranium catalysts Haber?s process called for with cheaper magnetite and aluminum oxide ones. The Haber-Bosch process remains the workhorse of this industry.

Because fertilizer gets incorporated into the agricultural products we eat, an estimated 40% of the essential nitrogen in every human?s body now originates from the Haber-Bosch process. Yet in a perfect example of how one discovery can benefit humanity just as easily as it can destroy it, the Haber-Bosch process was also vital to manufacturing nitrogen-based explosives for the German Army during World War I.

London’s new Mayor is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma

Embed from Getty Images

 

The anti Israel mainstream media seem as confused by Sadiq Khan as I am. Like a typical labour politician he has immediately made an issue of gender equality by appointing women to three top roles.

Khan ? who promised to ?put the fight for gender equality? at the heart of his mayoralty ? had already announced his statutory deputy is Joanne McCartney, meaning three of his four deputies are women.?

What has bamboozled the media and confused me is his apparent support for Israel. The media support the vicious BDS movement which has cost so many Palestinians their jobs. They cannot understand why Khan would support Israel. If a non-Muslim mayor had done this the press would have ripped him apart but because he is Muslim they are caught between a rock and a hard place. No reporter wants to be accused of racism or Islamophobia, since that is exactly what Khan’s opposition was accused of in the lead up to the election.
What really amuses me is the reporter’s concern that he is not being ‘ inclusive, ‘ because her idea of being inclusive is supporting Muslims not pro-Israel Jews. It is only okay to support minority rights if they are Muslims is the message I get from her article.

What I want to know, is whether Khan is genuinely pro-Israel or whether this is a political attempt to improve the Labour party’s image, given the anti-Semitic scandal that has so recently rocked them? He really is an enigma. One thing I do feel certain of is his ambition. Sadiq Khan has his eye on the leadership of the Labour party and the way he is going he just might achieve it

A letter from an Arab to a Jew that you must read

The people who help change the world are often the last people we would expect. They are the ones who have views that run counter to the views of people from their own ‘culture’. They are people who look beyond what they have been taught by others and who see reasons for doing things differently. This open letter from Arab Fred Maroun to Jews who support BDS is a great example of this. Both he and the Jews he is writing too are examples of people who run a counter current to their own communities. Both have the potential to create change. I will let you decide which side has the most harmful ?beliefs and aims.

Fred-Maroun-medium

Fred Maroun

Fred Maroun is a Canadian of Arab origin who lived in Lebanon until 1984, including during 10 years of civil war. Fred supports Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state, and he supports a liberal and democratic Middle East where all religions and nationalities, including Palestinians, can co-exist in peace with each other and with Israel, and where human rights are respected. Fred is an atheist, a social liberal, and an advocate of equal rights for LGBT people everywhere

You are Jewish, probably young and probably American, but you may be European or even Israeli, and you may not be so young any more. You have embraced the Arab battle against Zionism and you support the BDS movement, which as I demonstrated previously, aims for a single binational state in place of Israel and the Palestinian territories, and aims for the ?return? of millions of Palestinian refugees who would make Israel overnight an Arab state.
Your position interests me because I am the same as you and yet I am your opposite. I am the same as you in that I am in the countercurrent of my own community, but I am the opposite of you in my ethnicity and in my allegiances in the Israel-Arab conflict. I am an Arab who supports Jewish nationalism.

Irena Sendler. An unfamiliar name to most people, but this remarkable woman defied the Nazis and saved 2,500 Jewish children by smuggling them out of the Warsaw Ghetto.

Remembering Irena

A Light that Never Went Out

Arrested, tortured, and sentenced to death, Sendler managed to escape her sentence for?smuggling over 2,500 Jewish children out of the Warsaw Ghetto and saving them from certain death.

Irena Sendler, born in 1910, in Warsaw, Poland, was raised by her parents to respect and love people regardless of their ethnicity or social status. She grew up in the town of Otwock, Poland. Her father, a physician, died from typhus that he contracted during an epidemic in 1917. He was the only doctor in his town of Otwock, near Warsaw who would treat the poor, mostly Jewish community of this tragic disease. As he was dying, he told 7-year-old Irena, ?If you see someone drowning you must try to rescue them, even if you cannot swim.?

When World War II started in 1939, Irena immediately started protecting her Jewish friends in Warsaw. She worked as a social services director in Warsaw. She would make false documents for Jews in the city and had already started gathering her famous rescue network. When the Warsaw Ghetto was erected in 1940, Irena saw the danger ahead.

When liquidation started in 1942, Irena and her network accelerated the rescue process. The number 2,500, in connection with children rescued, is estimated by Irena and historians to be of this division. About 800 were taken from the Warsaw Ghetto, many of which were orphans. Approximately the same number were in orphanages and convents, Irena and her network assisted in the hiding of these children.

Face of the day

Today’s face of the day is a face from the past.

The face of a woman who survived the Holocaust and is still alive today. Her story is so bizarre that it is hard to believe that it is fact not fiction as the irony of what happened is just incredible.

An 80-year-old Jewish woman has revealed the astonishing story of how she came to front a Nazi party propaganda campaign in the 1930s after her baby picture was selected by the party as the “ideal Aryan” child.

– http://www.itv.com/news

Aryan:? In colloquial English, the word has been adopted in accordance with Nazi racial theory’s appropriation of the term to describe persons corresponding to the “Nordic” physical ideal of Nazi Germany (the “master race” ideology).[n 1]
