Zogby: They are ready! “Muslim blue wave” going to the voting booth for Muslim candidates

This article at Financial Review reminded me of the story I first wrote in 2007 about a Frederick, MD Imam going to Saudi Arabia and reporting to the Saudis that they were ready then to elect 30 Muslim mayors by 2015.  It didn’t happen of course.

Imam Yahya Hendi and the man

This is what Imam Yahya Hendi said, as reported in a front page story at the Washington Times, in August 2007:

“There are serious efforts being made among the second and third generation to become part of the political establishment. The challenge we face is in the media and from some Christian extremists who don’t want an Islamic presence in America.”


Mr. Hendi said U.S. Muslims were working on “nationalizing” Islam as part of the fabric of U.S. society, including cutting funding links to Muslim countries.


“Last year, we elected the first Muslim to Congress, and I expect that by 2015, there will be three or four, as well as at least 30 mayors,” he said, adding that the number of Muslim lawyers in the United States has multiplied since September 11.

I wrapped up that post (the story and post got virtually NO attention at the time) with this:

Can you imagine if some Catholic or Jewish leader was telling a foreign nation that they were working toward 30 (any number) Jewish mayors, or 30 Catholic mayors, all hell would break loose in the mainstream media!

The Financial Review doesn’t stop to consider that thought from a decade ago either. It is all go, go, go for the Muslim blue wave!

And, they say it is Donald Trump who is the great motivator.

Numbers, numbers, numbers!

The reality is that the demographic change (the Hijra!) is happening, and, as we admit more and more immigrants from Muslim countries, the push for “their values” will only get stronger.

American Muslims launch political campaigns in protest against Donald Trump

Fayaz Nawabi has never met President Donald Trump. But he credits the president with convincing him to run for office.

Fayaz Nawabi

Nawabi, a 31-year-old candidate for San Diego City Council, supports almost everything that Trump opposes: he is pro-affordable housing, pro-environment, pro-immigrant and pro-refugee. That makes him part of the blue wave of new liberal candidates spurred to run by Trump’s election and policies.

But Nawabi is also part of a notable subset: the Muslim blue wave.

More than 90 American Muslims, nearly all of them Democrats, are running for public office across the country this year. Many are young and politically inexperienced, and most are long shots. But they represent a collective gamble: that voters are so disgusted by America’s least popular president on record that they’re willing to elect members of America’s least popular religious minority group.

Although their number seems small, the candidacies mark an unprecedented rise for the nation’s diverse Muslim community that typically has been under-represented in American politics.

There are more than 3.3 million Muslims living in the United States, but Muslim Americans hold just two of the 535 seats in Congress. And the Muslim community’s voter participation pales in comparison to the general public’s.

Growth in Muslim immigrant population that votes for Democrats….

The Financial Review continues….

Zogby: They are ready!

The rise of Muslim candidates coincides with the growth of the predominantly immigrant population and a partisan shift that has played out over a generation.

In a 2001 Zogby poll of American Muslims, 42 per cent said they voted for Republican George W. Bush in the previous year’s presidential election, while 31 per cent said they voted for Democrat Al Gore. By last year, just 8 per cent of voting American Muslims in a Pew poll said they voted for Trump, while 78 per cent said they voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton.


Now, Muslim candidates are running for a wide range of offices across the country, from local school boards to the US Senate. Some are making their Muslim identity central to their campaigns.

“When you put someone in a corner and they’re in survival mode, they have a tendency to come out and speak more prominently about their beliefs,” said Nawabi, who considers himself an “unapologetic Muslim” who can quote the Koran from memory and moonlights as a “freelance imam”.

In Michigan, where 13 Muslim candidates are running for office, physician Abdul El-Sayed is hoping voters will elect him to be the first Muslim governor in the US and has used his religion in campaign ads against Republican front-runner Bill Schuette, whom Trump has endorsed.

This (above) made me laugh: El-Sayed is using his religion in his ads as if that is hunky-dory.

Egregious double standard!

Can you imagine the media storm if a gubernatorial candidate proudly used his Christian or Jewish religion in his ads! All hell would break loose!

A small number of Muslim and Arab advocacy groups, such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Emgage (formerly called Emerge USA), and the Arab American Institute have spent years training young political activists, tracking rising politicians and running get-out-the-vote campaigns, particularly in immigrant communities after the 9/11 terrorist attacks set off an anti-Muslim and anti-Arab backlash.


“They’re ready,” said James Zogby, a long-time Democratic operative and president of the Arab American Institute, who has provided funding and mentorship to several candidates. “Both communities separately have reached a level of maturation.”


Some candidates and political activists say that even if no Muslim candidate wins a seat this year, the blue Muslim wave still will have accomplished something. The American public will grow more accustomed to seeing Muslim candidates, they say, and Muslim youth will see candidates who look like them or share their values.

But, what exactly are their values, that is the question?

And, can you imagine any mainstream publication publishing the line below with a straight face, as the Financial Review has done with the above line:

Christian youth will see candidates who look like them or share their values.

Heads explode!

You can read the whole story here (worth it to learn about the candidates and where they are).

  1. How does any Muslim meet the requirements for candidacy for any office in government in the United States? The majority of them were not born here to parents that were citizens or were naturalized citizens. These are the two headings that a candidate must fall under in order to serve in government in the United States or any of the States.

    Next, the Oath-of-Office they must swear, on the Bible, that they will preserve, protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies, both foreign and domestic, to the best of their ability. they can not truthfully commit to. They will not swear on the Bible. If they do they will be lying in order to further the advancement of Islam in the World (al Taqiyya) as all Muslims are required to do.

    The United States is in serious danger from within already. We have a shadow government that is controlling everything that happens in order to advance the Socialist/Islamic/Communist/Globalist agenda towards a One World Government headquartered in the United Nations. Obama had/has serious intentions of being the head of such a government of the richest one percent would control everyone and everything. Under their agenda, anyone that has not amassed a fortune on their own, will have no value and would receive nothing to help them. Do some research on Henry Kissinger (has met with Trump twice, once just before his election), David Rockefeller, Zibigniew Brzezinski and James Earl Carter. These people installed the shadow government and staffed it from among their own ranks. At the time Carter was elected President to serve David Rockefeller and Z. Brzezinski by assisting with the seeding of Trilateral Commission members into a significant number of high and influential offices from which they could effect policies. That is when the Constitution and American institutions came under attack from within. The practice has continued to this day. I don’t know how many members of the Trilateral Commission, the Builderberg Group and Counsel on Foreign Relations (CFR) are in the Trump Administration but, based on his having met with Henry Kissinger, I assume that their are many including those remaining from Obama’s Administration. Obama had installed at least 12 of them within the first week after he was sworn in. Do the research.

    The One Percent would govern using the promise of Muslims having free rein to exact their beliefs on the poor masses having no personal fortunes. Beheadings will take place everywhere and will start with by eliminating the white race with no mercy to be shown anyone, man, woman, or child. I hope American voters will take the time and make the effort to know every candidate better than they know themselves, including all incumbents. Nothing in the Constitutions says that anyone has to be reelected. The fact that elections are held every second year is not a mistake. The Framers set that up so voters can rid themselves of everyone that lies, doesn’t keep promises, does not serve the people in strict accordance with the Constitution, as it was written and legally amended in accordance with Article V. thereof, and does not put the country above all else. Elections are held every second year because that is when terms end for every Member of the House of Representatives (the People’s House) and one-third of Senators. Read Article I., Sections 2 and 3,. and Article II, Section 1. All terms are limited to one if you read them following rules of English grammar.

    Any elected person that gains is personal wealth while in office must not be reelected because they do not earn enough while in office to increase personal wealth. The only way for public servants to gain significant wealth is for them to take advantage of unguarded temptations for which there are no penalties for abuse. The Framers knew that men are weak and will fall to those temptations, over time, and that when they fell they would come to serve the continuance of the fruits gained in falling, before the responsibilities of the office of trust they hold and before the Constitution in violation of their sworn Oath.

    How can you allow a person who you entrusted with your permission to act as your voice in management of our country for the benefit of all born citizens and naturalized citizens, to continue to be seated in that position of trust when they continually demonstrate that they are not worthy of trust.of any sort. That they are serving only for ill-gotten gains of power and personal wealth. That they only remember that they have constituents when they need to be reelected to continue their personal gains at your expense. I am willing to guess that no more than ten percent of those in office are worthy of reelection in 2018. DO NOT ELECT/REELECT ANYONE that can not be trusted in every respect.

    This is the only peaceful way we can save America, by voting very informed following your own research on each candidate, and refusing to vote for anyone that has proved by their actions that they are liars, cheats, who do not keep promises made to God or constituents. If there is only one candidate on the ballot and that person is unworthy, don’t vote for anyone for that office. Force a special election to include worthy candidates.

    No Muslim, knowing that they each will lie in the face of unbelievers (al Taqiyya) in order to advance Islam, can be trusted with public offices from which they can influence the spread of death and slavery to a cruel ideology where service to Allah and his profit Muhammad is more important than life itself. They believe death is a gift to them for serving Allah and that they will receive great rewards for their service in the next world.


    1. A couple of things….you don’t have to be American born to run for MOST political offices and I doubt we will see beheadings taking place everywhere in the US. That ‘beheading’ comment almost kept me from posting your whole opinion.


      1. Not so sure there won’t be beheadings…There seems to be a rise of anti Christian sentiments in this country…that will only fuel muslim action….we don’t see how bad things can get right now…but look around the world. We need to take heed.

  2. (1) These Muslim candidates are said to be “pro-environment.” You know you are vacationing in Liberal Unicorn Land with your best buddy Big Foot when you merrily believe that being pro-environment and being pro-open borders / pro-overpopulation are compatible.

    (2) Today’s anti-West political demographics are already worse than most realize. Mark Collett has reported that there are now towns all over the UK where Muslims make up about 20 percent of voters, they vote as a block, swing every election to one or the other of the two main parties. Hence both parties are perpetually hat-in-hand trying to court them, promising them more government benefits, not prosecuting their crimes, going after their critics, etc.


    1. As for #1, we know that you can be a Sierra Club member and support open borders (overpopulation) so I guess they figure they can too!
