Another addition to the real-life League of Extraordinary Women! Muslim journalist Nadine Al-Budair, writing in a Kuwait newspaper, displayed more courage than 90% of American reporters. Al-Budair criticized the Muslim World over its continuing attempt to blame the Western World for its problems, problems which go back over 1,000 years.
Nadine pointed out that the Muslim world is long overdue for some collective introspection of its own instead of always pointing the finger elsewhere.
“It is strange that we condemn instead of apologizing to the world,” Al-Budair wrote.
She further stated that claims made by Muslims that those who commit terrorism do not represent Islam are “farces” and are “pathetic” attempts to absolve Muslims of guilt.
“It is strange that we [Muslims] believe we have the right to condemn such statements (criticism of Islam) rather than address the implications of some of our extremist curricula, our education, and our regimes, and be ashamed [of them]… It is strange that we condemn [the West] instead of addressing what is happening in our midst – the extremist ways in which we interpret the shari’a and our reactionary attitudes towards each other and the world.”
Needless to say the political left around the world will – as usual – ignore all Muslims like Nadine who want to live in the 21st Century. The Democratic Party here in the U.S. won’t invite her to the White House, and the emotional cripples on our college campuses will find her “problematic” and won’t let her speak. She’ll be dismissed as “a Western Triumphalist” and will be accused of “internalizing Western oppression.”
To the left ONLY Muslims who take offense at drawings of Muhammad, ONLY Muslims who want to live in the past and who hate the West matter. You’ll notice the left won’t even present public debates between Muslims who prefer the modern world and Muslims who prefer to live in the 7th Century. Doing so would prevent them from trying to make people think that hate-filled Muslim versions of Al Sharpton represent how all Muslims feel.
