Muslim physician refutes Trump ‘Islamophobia’ narrative, tells CNN: POTUS ‘beloved’ in Islamic world

By Jon Dougherty

A Muslim physician who said she “moves around” in the Muslim world refuted the mainstream media’s narrative on Saturday that POTUS Donald Trump’s rhetoric was somehow responsible for the terrorist attack in New Zealand.

Qanta Ahmed, a doctor and an associate professor of medicine at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, appeared on CNN and was asked to respond to a video played by host Fredericka Whitfield of the president on Friday using the word “invasion” in connection with the issue of illegal immigration on the southern border.

The word was also used in a manifesto written by the alleged New Zealand attacker, Brenton Tarrant, to describe Muslims streaming into Europe. Trump was also mentioned in the document.

Though admitting the word choice was “poor” and the timing “much worse,” Ahmed told Whitfield she needed to look at the bigger picture.

“There is nothing — the president has no responsibility if a fanatic mentions him in a manifesto. A fanatic could equally mention me. So, I don’t think that is his responsibility,” Ahmed said, noting further that she would like to see the president condemn all forms of “lethal bigotry.”

“And one thing the viewers should know, this president and this administration is often castigated as Islamophobic, but I move in the Muslim world, in Egypt, in Oman, in Jordan, in Iraqi Kurdistan where this president is beloved,” she said.

In fact, she added, support for the president and the Republican Party has been strong in the Muslim world for years.

“This president and the Republican Party going back to George Bush is very dearly held,” she said.

“Today is the anniversary of … the massacre of 180,000 Kurds at the hands of Saddam Hussein. That only change would because of a Republican president. So, it is very important not to lose so much perspective that we start believing our entire government is Islamophobic. That is not the case,” she said.

Ahmed also noted that the phrase “Islamophobia” is very often used incorrectly.

“Islamophobia actually means the refusal to scrutinize or examine Islam or Islamism, Islamist institutions,” she noted.

“So we must distinguish lethal, diabolical, anti-Muslim xenophobia as is happening in Christchurch from Islamophobia. Why should we do that? Because, if we do not, we empower Islamists who wish to propagate the myth, the same myth that the white supremacist gunman wants us to believe that we are under siege in the secular world, that we are victims in the West,” said Ahmed.

The Muslim physician also proffered commentary regarding the anti-Semitism of Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, a Muslim native of Somalia.

“Anti-Semitism occurred in Congress, and the reaction was when there was outrage that this was somehow hate directed at a Muslim who is spewing Islamist ideology. So, we have to be extremely clear about the language, clear about the narrative …,” she observed.

The Left is attacking the President with lies and propaganda 24/7 because they are afraid. They are afraid he is going to win the 2020 election because the Mueller probe has failed and they are out of ammunition. They are grabbing at any event in the world and twisting it into an anti-Trump narrative hoping that Americans will believe it. The Left is like the story of the little boy who kept yelling “wolf !” trying to scare the village folks. We are not scared of fake news. We are not listening to you … the Left. Go cry “wolf”… Read more »


The Deep State orchestrated the New Zealand mosque shootings to divert attention away from what is soon to be revealed here at home regarding the FISA scandal, which was a leftist/Democrat attempt to get a warrant from the FISA court in order to use the left’s fake salacious DNC/Hillary funded Trump-bashing dossier to take down candidate, and then President Trump. Tony Podesta, Hillary’s top aide, was in New Zealand just before the tragic mosque shootings occurred, publicly stating that something like that could soon happen. New Zealand has a computer system that leftist American political leaders were visiting New Zealand… Read more »

Trump is quite a breath of fresh air from the stale marshmallow soft metrosexual weenie boys preening in their safe space while whining about muh SJW.
Something the inbred “elites” don’t know about the newcomers is that they will never vote for a woman or soy boy unless there is enough free stuff offered.
