In a press conference denouncing President Trump’s so-called “ban” on the mass importation of Muslim migrants, Hamas-CAIR’s national executive director Nihad Awad likened Pres. Trump’s action to slavery.
The Daily Caller asked Awad if refugees have a right to come to the United States, and CAIR’s communications director Ibrahim Hooper claimed that under international law refugees have “rights beyond what normal immigrants have.” Awad added that the issue isn’t one “of legality,” but of “morality.”
The CAIR executive director then equated refusing refugee entry to former American policies of slavery and women not being able to vote. He said those actions were legal but “wrong.”
It is surprising to hear a Muslim so publicly condemn the actions of Mohammed –the “perfect man” –and accuse him of immorality. But such is the case, as even a passing familiarity with the life of Mohammed reveals that he himself owned and traded in slaves, and advised his followers to do so.
He also specifically instructed his followers that it was perfectly all right to rape female captives –though it is true that there is no discussion of woman suffrage per se recorded.
The Quran actually devotes more verses to making sure that Muslim men know they can keep women as sex slaves (4) than it does to telling them to pray five times a day (zero).
There is also a place in the Hadith which discusses an enslaved African owned by Mohammed:
Sahih Bukhari (72:734) – Some contemporary Muslims in the West (where slavery is believed to be a horrible crime) are reluctant to believe that Muhammad owned slaves. This is just one of many places in the Hadith where a reference is made to a human being owned by Muhammad. In this case, the slave is of African descent.
Hard as it is to believe that Nihad Awad holds late 18th and early 19th century Americans to a higher moral standard than he does the Prophet of Allah, there you have it.
The CAIR representative also pointed out that he himself had entered the US as a refugee, though whether the information was intended as a threat, or as evidence in support of President Trump’s action, was less clear.
Nihad didn’t get around to explaining in what way Pres. Trump’s moratorium on accepting refugees –whose religion commands them to make war on the infidel –constituted immorality, but he was probably too confused to be able to explain it to the dirty kuffars.
