Robert Spencer: Muslim “reformer” Maajid Nawaz denounces opposition to hijabbed Muslims in Christmas ad as racist

40

The British supermarket chain Tesco is getting heat for a Christmas ad featuring hijabbed Muslimas, and Muslim “reformer” Maajid Nawaz is enraged – not at Tesco, but at those who are complaining about the ad.

Says LBC: “The supermarket has responded to an outpouring of racist abuse after featuring a Muslim family in a Christmas advert.” And Nawaz adds: “Your real agenda here is you just want a white, nativist, non-Muslim Britain.”

Once again: Islam is not a race. There are Muslims of all races. Objecting to Muslims being featured in a Christmas ad is not due to “racism.” It stems from Tesco’s obvious agenda in putting Muslims in the ad in the first place: to remind non-Muslims in Britain that Muslims are present in Britain, and are there to stay, and only racist, bigoted “Islamophobes” would have any objection. It’s propaganda and manipulation disguised as an ad for turkey.

Nawaz, meanwhile, blasts those who are unhappy about the ad: “The only conclusion I can come to is that this is driven, and fuelled, by a rising anti-Muslim sentiment that wants no Muslim presence in this country and will take any opportunity to decry and bemoan a semblance of a Muslim presence in this country. Your real agenda here is you just want a white, nativist, non-Muslim Britain. You want to hark back to that nostalgic sense you have of a country before immigration. That’s the only conclusion I can come to because you’re not happy either way. If Muslims refuse to integrate you complain. If Muslims integrate you complain. That tells me there’s an axe to grind and you’re grinding it.”

The only conclusion you can come to? Really? What a failure of imagination, Nawaz!

Here is another conclusion you can come to: non-Muslims in Britain are concerned about jihad terror and the repeated boasts from Islamic jihadists that Britain will before too long become a Sharia state. They don’t see anyone in the British government or establishment media addressing those concerns adequately: no one is challenging Muslims to work for reform, no one is questioning what is being taught in mosques, no one is opposing the establishment of Sharia enclaves. Instead, tens of thousands of British girls have been sacrificed to Muslim rape gangs operating in accord with Qur’anic teaching, because British officials were too afraid of being called “racist” and “Islamophobic” to prosecute them. Jihad preachers speak freely in mosques all over the country, often coming from other countries and having no trouble getting into Britain, because barring them would also be “Islamophobic.”

And while all this is going on, you tell us that Tesco featuring Muslims in a Christmas ad is a sign of “integration,” and that we’re racist for opposing it. In reality, every Muslim in Britain could celebrate Christmas, and it wouldn’t be a sign of integration. Why not? Because it’s off the point. When Muslims sincerely renounce and work against jihad terror, and all the aspects of Sharia that conflict with British law (the denial of the freedom of speech, the denial of the freedom of conscience, the institutionalized discrimination against women and non-Muslims, the death penalty for gays, the stoning for adultery, the amputation of the hand for theft, and all the rest), then they are integrating? Celebrating Christmas? Not integrating.

Why not? Because even though the celebration of Christmas is often denounced by Muslim clerics, it doesn’t touch upon the aspects of Islam that make non-Muslims concerned, and is not necessarily an indication that Muslims have renounced those aspects of Islam. There are unfortunately numerous examples of Muslims who lived in close proximity to non-Muslims and were quite friendly to them, until it came time for jihad.

The above photo and caption are from the June 19, 2013 New York Times. It illustrates how the call to jihad can override all existing loyalties — such that a Syrian Alawite can suddenly be murdered by his Sunni friend. There are innumerable other examples, such as Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s 9/11/11 throat-slitting murder of his Jewish “best friend.”

An anecdote from the Ottoman Empire in the late nineteenth century:

Then one night, my husband came home and told me that the padisha had sent word that we were to kill all the Christians in our village, and that we would have to kill our neighbours. I was very angry, and told him that I did not care who gave such orders, they were wrong. These neighbours had always been kind to us, and if he dared to kill them Allah would pay us out. I tried all I could to stop him, but he killed them — killed them with his own hand. (Sir Edwin Pears, Turkey and Its People, London: Methuen and Co., 1911, p. 39)

So yeah, Maajid, you can call me racist all you want, but I don’t find it a wonderful reassurance that Tesco shows us Muslims celebrating Christmas. I want to see Muslims renounce jihad terror.

What are you doing to facilitate that, or is all your energy taken up with smearing and defaming foes of jihad terror and endorsing Muslim Brotherhood politicians?

    Thank you Pamela.

    A little Jihad never killed anyone, oooooops, but what’s several million dead people in the grand scope of things?

  • Voytek Gagalka

    Muslim in Christmas? Are they not forbidden by numerous Koranic verses from participating in Christmas or be associated with Christians?

    • created4el

      Not exactly… the “peaceful Muslim” will tell you that you will not find any command in the Quran that forbids the celebration of Christmas. And it doesn’t say a Muslim can’t associate with Christians. You won’t find those words in the Quran. As far as I know, you won’t it in the hadith either. But you may find a fatwa on it.

      The Quran merely denounces everything Christians believe about Jesus and thus everything about the meaning behind Christmas. So, it makes absolutely no sense for them to celebrate Christmas which makes an ad of a Muslim celebrating Christmas moronic. Saying Jesus is God is shirk (Quran 5:116). Saying he died and resurrected goes against the accepted interpretation of Quran 4:157. A celebration of Emanuel? A punishable offense unless you are doing so for the sake of taqqiyah… do not take them for your friend, they are friends of each other after all (Quran 3:28, 5:51)… but if you must appear to do so, smile at them but curse them in your heart (Tafsir ibn Kathir’s commentary on Quran 3:28)…

      So you see… (smiling-in-your-face on) it doesn’t forbid celebration of Christmas and it doesn’t forbid associating with Christians… (smiling-in-your-face off) … both technically true but technically only allowed if in the context of taqqiyah or jihad.

      You can tell yourself that not all Muslims actually follow the text and teachings of the Islamic scriptures and you’d be right… then you can decide for yourself which ones will most likely follow them faithfully and which ones do not.

    • Qur’an 18:86

      Voytek, you are correct. But if Muslims were to follow the perfect teachings of their perfect book with proper diligence then they would also have to believe that the earth is flat, the planet was made before the rest of the universe, 1+0=1.5, and various other equally profound facts. http://www.IslamHoax.com http://www.BecomeATerrorist.com Have a nice Jihad!

  • santashandler

    “And Nawaz adds: “Your real agenda here is you just want a white, nativist, non-Muslim Britain.” Yep. I’d say that’s about right. FU*K them in the hijabs. They don’t belong in Christmas ads.

    • Toledo Steel

      Muslims do not belong around humans.

    “Nawaz, meanwhile, blasts those who are unhappy about the ad: “The only conclusion I can come to is that this is driven, and fuelled, by a rising anti-Muslim sentiment that wants no Muslim presence in this country and will take any opportunity to decry and bemoan a semblance of a Muslim presence in this country.

Bless my ears and brassieres, this muslim has a very good grasp of the obvious. muslims are not welcome anywhere because they are dirty, ignorant, arrogant, violent, useless welfare grubs constantly demanding that others give up there rights and privileges to islam and preferred treatment of muslims. muslims are not happy anywhere, there is no point in allowing them to make others miserable, deport every muslim back to their manure heaps of origin, where they will be just as miserable, but decent people will not have to see or hear about it.

    • Dan Knight

      So you’re saying an Islamophobe is what you call someone when he doesn’t like “dirty, ignorant, arrogant, violent, useless welfare” supremacists …

      You’re too kind btw … ;-)

    WHO gives a crap what mulsim savages think? They wear their idiot dress to segregate themselves from others. Deport the savages. Islam is incompatible with humanity.

  • OverIt

    Perhaps non-Muslims should return the compliment by featuring in ads for Eid al fitr wearing standard western skimpy summer clothing. Because this ill thought out contrived ad by Tesco is the precise equivalent.

    • Qur’an 18:86

      Not really. Tescos are just trying to create a sense of everyone welcome (and hopefully buy a turkey from them, even including Muslims (who after all have no prohibition on having a turkey). The backlash from my fellow phobes here is simply drivel more fitting to the jihadophile line of thoughtlessness.

      • Michael Copeland

        Islam prohibits turkey that is not halal-slaughtered.

  • martin jenkins

    The UK succumbing to Islam. Our media coverage of anything that shows Muslims as victims or Muslims assimilating into our society is broadcast daily.
    Facts about the daily terrorist activities across the Globe and implementation of sharia law as Islamic populations expand are clearly not part of media or authority agenda.
    The truth is out there

  • jim

    No Muslim has ever apologized for the atrocities of their Prophet Muhammad nor, will they ever. Instead, they come up with all sorts of excuses and lies to justify his violence and sexual perversions.
    Its quite easy for a so-called Moderate Muslim to be radicalized.
    No Muslim will renounce Sharia and jihad.

  • Qur’an 18:86

    Dear Robert, a new report has just now CLEARLY IDENTIFIED that Islamophobia IS anti-Muslim racism:
    “Twenty years after the Runnymede Trust published groundbreaking research
    on Islamophobia in Britain, a new report seeks to further the debate by
    clearly identifying it, not as an abstract issue of culture, but for
    what it is: anti-Muslim racism.”
    https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/nov/14/muslims-neither-good-nor-bad-human-islamophobia-britain
    Please do try to keep up with the latest research before trotting out your opinions again!

    • Qur’an 18:86

      “It stems from Tesco’s obvious agenda in putting Muslims in the ad in the
      first place: to remind non-Muslims in Britain that Muslims are present
      in Britain, and are there to stay, and only racist, bigoted
      “Islamophobes” would have any objection. It’s propaganda and
      manipulation disguised as an ad for turkey.”
      Dear Robert, much as I admire your efforts generally, you are writing pure cobblers there. There are less than 2 seconds of the Muslimas in the ad. Tesco is merely trying to convey an inclusive all-welcome concept of xmas. In my experience a lot of UK Muslims do wish to participate a bit in xmas, albeit might not go so far as to visit a church. I recall yrs ago when I gave my Mus neighbours a joke xmas card. They didn’t threaten to decapitate me for the offence….

      • Mahou Shoujo

        … yet.

        • Qur’an 18:86

          Well I no longer live in that street because my “christian” associates ganged up to get me evicted (to steal my flat) and the only people who helped were my Muslimic neighbours who enabled me to share a place with a very kind and patient refugee from the Taliban. If you ever want to find out who your true friends AREN’T, just try becoming homeless and it will become very obvious.

  • BonniePrinceCharlie

    There’s a big difference between shopping at Tesco to take advantage of the holiday period and actually celebrating Christmas. You should see the number of turkeys in kosher butchers. It’s not because Orthodox Jews are celebrating Christmas. It’s because they’re taking advantage of the holiday period to entertain family and friends who live too far to walk on Shabbos or the High Holidays when use of the car or public transport is not allowed. I speak from personal experience. We are invited to lunch on 25th December who live about 12 miles away and I will be sorely disappointed if I don’t get turkey with stuffing, roast potatoes and Brussels sprouts.

    I have no objections whatsoever to Muslims shopping at Tesco or being featured in an ad – provided they don’t try to run us all down with the trolleys.

  • Stephen Honig

    Once I see “Muslim reformer” I know it’s BS. These so-called “reformers” are actually the most dangerous and cleverly manipulative taqiyya-spewing con artists out there!

  • notme123

    These 💩will do anything to destroy our Christian holidays, and national holidays. They don’t even believe in Christ. It’s all part of the califate plan of infiltration, take over and installing sharia.

  • David Glynn

    The real motivation behind this deplorable add is to try and get muslims spending in Tesco stores at Christmas along with the rest of the mugs.
    But in Tesco’s greed and blind stupidity they could never see this as being unreal and controversial. Tesco worships money and they couldn’t give a fk for either Christianity or Islam.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      Love of money is the root of all advertising.

  • Dan Knight

    Muslims can no more celebrate Christmas than I can murder people in the name of Jesus.

    Just to be clear.
