Islamists Infiltrate the Democratic Party
A strange alliance has developed between Islamism and the progressive left.
In January, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar became the first Muslim women ever to sit in the United States Congress. Both were recruited by the far-left Justice Democrats political action committee. And both champion left-wing causes like abortion, homosexual “marriage” and marijuana legalization. Yet when not criticizing Christians for opposing such values, they raise money for Islamist groups like the Council on American Islamic Relations.
Tlaib and Omar recently participated in a fundraiser with Omar Suleiman, an imam with links to the Muslim Brotherhood. He is known for condemning abortion, homosexual “marriage” and marijuana use. It is odd that Tlaib and Omar would share a stage with an Islamic fundamentalist who preaches against what they allegedly stand for.
According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, Islamism is “a popular reform movement advocating the reordering of government and society in accordance with laws prescribed by Islam.” Many Islamists have been paying lip service to left-wing causes to gain influence in the U.S. political system and attack the State of Israel.
The Great Satan
The affinity between Islamists and leftists comes from a common belief that America is the “Great Satan” and Israel is the “Little Satan.” Both Tlaib and Omar oppose American capitalism. And they support boycotting, sanctioning and divesting from the State of Israel. Both have engaged in anti-Semitic rhetoric. This year, Tlaib’s official Instagram account followed a page that depicts Jews as rats and accuses them of perpetrating the 9/11 attacks. In 2012, Omar tweeted that “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”
Both politicians joined the Democratic Party and are now working to turn the U.S. government against Israel.
“Islamists have been attempting for years to gain influence within the U.S. political system,” reports Middle East Forum. “They align themselves with the left wing of the Democratic Party not because they support lgbt rights or abortion, but to gain power through the progressive agenda of intersectionality and multiculturalism. … Islamist activists often say that when they have enough power, they will turn on their progressive allies and implement their own priorities.”
Dr. Ibraheem Samirah is a representative in the Virginia House of Delegates who worked as a senior campaign manager for Tlaib. He compared his campaign’s alliance with the radical left to the decision of Mohammed “to form treaties with his enemies.” Mohammed, he said, “had to form alliances with people who weren’t necessarily believers of his message, who would later on become people who would be his enemies.”
Intersectional Islamists have a greater chance of imposing extreme ideas on America than the Islamic State or al Qaeda ever did.
The Real Satan
Contrary to Representative Omar’s claims, it is not Israel that has hypnotized the world. Our people don’t understand their Bibles as they once did. But many scriptures show that it is Satan the devil who has hypnotized the world.
“Revelation 12:12 reveals that Satan is our deadly adversary,” Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry wrote in “America’s Real Enemy.” “He is the one behind these dangerous developments. The devil is full of wrath, and he has gotten control of the government of this land! He controls the radical left. The fruits prove it. These people want to bring this system down.”
America and the Jewish people have been greatly blessed by God. But since they have turned away from His Ten Commandments, the devil has sown discord and lawlessness among them. This is why abortionists, homosexual political activists, drug addicts and Islamists have all made common cause against Judeo-Christian values expounded in the Bible.
