Haroon Moghul is one of the most ridiculous exponents of the “Islamophobia” victimhood propaganda industry, as he has shown himself to be many times. Obsessed with victimhood, poor Haroon cowers in fear of “Islamophobic” coffee servers: his Starbucks name is not Haroon but “Dwayne” (my Starbucks name, meanwhile, is “Haroon”).
When he gets behind a keyboard, however, he is suddenly full of bravado, trafficking in malicious defamation (likening me to jihad mass murder mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki, blithely ignoring the inconvenient facts that I have never called for violence, approved of violence, exhorted anyone to commit terror acts, or assisted in the planning of any terror acts) and dishonesty (discounting the reality of jihad terror while magnifying the fiction of “Islamophobia”) and taking advantage of his audience’s ignorance about Islam to invert reality, portraying Muslims as victims of a cruel “Islamophobic” machine, instead of non-Muslims threatened by the global jihad.
Why has this disingenuous huckster been invited to speak at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum? Because the Leftist establishment thinks that it is one of the first priorities, in the aftermath of any jihad terror attack, to make sure that no one thinks ill of Islam or jihad. The 9/11 Memorial and Museum wouldn’t dream of hosting a speaker who explained the motives and goals of the 9/11 hijackers, and the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat. That would be “Islamophobic,” and there would be shrill (and likely violent) protests until such an event was canceled.
The 9/11 museum authorities likely did not, however, anticipate any protests over Moghul’s appearance, because Muslim spokesmen assuring us that jihad terrorism has nothing to do with Islam have become so familiar a feature of our cultural landscape. So kudos to the first responders for maintaining clarity of vision even after 16 years of an ever-thickening fog of disinformation and lies.
“Zadroga, 70, said he believes life has been difficult for Moghul since 9/11.”
Nonsense. Life was never so good for Moghul before 9/11 as it has been after. 9/11 gave him his calling: to become a professional whiner, a public victim, a propagandist of “Islamophobia.”
“First responders rip Muslim author’s planned appearance at 9/11 museum,” by Rocco Parascandola, New York Daily News, September 22, 2017:
A planned appearance by a Muslim author at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum doesn’t sit well with some first responders — and the writer says he welcomes open dialogue.
Haroon Moghul will discuss how his experiences after the terror attacks, influenced his memoir, “How to Be a Muslim: An American Story.”
“But my hope is if people are critical — and they have every right to be critical — that they would be willing to come out and hear what I have to say and have a conversation,” Moghul said of the Oct. 4 event.
Former constructor worker TJ Gilmartin, 57, who toiled through the toxic rubble at Ground Zero and developed cancer — has no interest in hearing Moghul’s story.
“It wasn’t a priest that flew those planes into the Twin Towers,” Gilmartin said. “It wasn’t a minister. It wasn’t a rabbi. It was Muslims. I understand I’m not being politically correct, but Muslims ruined my life.”
Moghul, a CNN commentator, says he understands the strong emotions associated with America’s darkest day.
The 37-year-old author was in class at New York University when the World Trade Center collapsed.
He talks in his book about struggling with his identity — as an American, a Muslim and a New Yorker. Joe Zadroga, whose son James, an NYPD detective who died of breathing problems after getting sick during the Ground Zero rescue effort says the invite to Moghul is “disrespectful” to those who died that day and every day after.
Zadroga, 70, said he believes life has been difficult for Moghul since 9/11.
“But it probably was nowhere near the suffering of the families those who died, or those that died on that day,” he said. “What about what happened to the first responders? How about how their lives have changed? That’s what upset me the most.”…
Now-retired sanitation police officer, Chuckie Diaz says he will now stop going to the museum.
“He’s talking about being a good Muslim, but to me that has nothing do with the 9/11 museum,” said Diaz, 55, who now suffers from cancer. “Who’s asking us about our opinion?”…
