Another courageous Muslim woman has joined the real-life League of Extraordinary Women by going where far too many people fear to tread. Shams Bandar, a popular singer in the Middle East, denounced Muslim fascism and set the current world situation into its proper context.
Ms Bandar’s finest moment came on Egyptian television when she shocked the host by challenging them during their standard “it’s all the fault of the Western World” shpiel. The entire transcript can be found online, by the way.
One of Shams’ best lines about the Muslim (and American Left) tendency to blame the West for their dysfunctional state was “We Muslims have been fighting and shedding blood for 1,400 years and now we are blaming America and Britain?” YOU GO GIRL!
Other lines which the condescending people of the American left will NOT be giving any publicity to include:
(In reply to the tired argument that the Western World has done some bad things, too) – “But show me where it says in their constitutions that you can chop people’s hands off, stone people, execute them in the streets, or do all the things done by ISIS and the Islamist movements, which are harmful to Islam. Do you see in the American constitution and law any of the things perpetrated by our Muslims?”
(In reply to the usual “the West is racist and imperialist” type of argument) – “Can anyone convince me that in present-day America and Europe they do what the Islamic State is doing to the Syrians, to the Yazidis, to the Iraquis? Why do we pin all our problems on the West? We Muslims have been slaughtering each other for 1,400 years just because some Muslims pray one way and others pray another way. America wasn’t around 1,400 years ago. It wasn’t around even 300 years ago.”
There are American high school and college teachers who would be too terrified to make those common sense arguments but Shams waded right in! And on Egyptian television yet! She’ll never be invited on The View or get to be the subject of a Hollywood movie (only if she HATED the West would they admire her) because she is brave enough to tell the truth about how blood-soaked and unstable the Muslim World has long been.
