Considering how much difficulty the Obama administration has in actually admitting there’s a connection between Islamic State and Islam, it’s amazing how many women from the Muslim world are raising their voices against the violence and subjugation of radical Islam. We’ve written here at length about Ayaan Hirsi Ali, and just last week about an Arab reporter in Israel calling out the Palestinian leadership for inciting violence.
Now, a Saudi-born singer is potentially taking her own life in her hands as she speaks out against the centuries of slaughter and the hellish living conditions in the Arab world.
In a recent interview on the Egyptian Dream television channel, Saudi-born singer Shams Bandar, also known as “Shams the Kuwaiti,” declared she was renouncing her Saudi and Kuwaiti nationalities and seeking citizenship in a European country. In the interview, she defended her decision, saying: “What can these wretched [refugees] do with their Arab citizenship?” All the Arab countries have closed their borders to them.”
You can watch the interview here with subtitles.
As she says,… “in Britain or America, note that I am against the policies of their governments. I always say so. But show me where it says in their Constitutions that you can chop people’s hands off, stone people, execute them in the streets, or do all the things done by ISIS and the Islamist movements, which are harmful to Islam. Do you see in the American Constitution and law any of the things perpetrated by our Muslims? Can we say that they do these things in the West, too? Why would they, when their Constitutions are all about respect for humanity?
Can anyone convince me that in America or Europe, they do what ISIS is doing to the Syrians, to the Yazidis, or to the Iraqis? Why do we pin all our problems on the West? For 1,400 years, we have been slaughtering one another, just because one of us prays one way and another prays a different way. America wasn’t around 1,400 years ago. It wasn’t around even 300 years ago. We have been fighting and shedding blood for 1,400 years, and now we are blaming America and Britain?”
Amazingly, here is a woman who actually lives in the Arab world willing to tell the truth about Islam, even though it will most certainly mean some insane Mullah will order his minions to kill her, while our “leaders” here in the United States, having no fear of being attacked, continue to lie to us day after day about the culture of Islam and the threat it poses to us and the world as a whole.
Unlike the progressive left with Barack Obama at the helm, she refuses to “blame America” – which once again brings up that nagging question, which side are they on? Pretty obvious, really.
