Muslim women run for local office, aim for White House

Sara al-Farhan at Northwestern conveniently doesn’t mention Project M’s ties to Hamas-linked CAIR, or the Hamas links in the Bridgeview area. via Arab Muslim women embrace rewards and challenges of running for local office.

Running for public office is not something that women are encouraged to do in male-dominated Arab Muslim culture. But five of the seven Arab Muslim candidates running for local office in Chicago’s Southwest suburbs are women.

The Southwest suburbs, which include towns such as Orland Park, Burbank and Bridgeview, are home to large pockets of Arab immigrant families. Because census data excludes Arabs as an official ethnic category, no firm data exists on the area’s Arab population. Being an underrepresented minority in the U.S. is one disadvantage, but being a female in an underrepresented minority has its own set of challenges.

“I am female. I am Muslim. I also wear the headscarf,” said Maha Hasan, a woman of Palestinian origin running for the library board in Justice. “These are the things that can be obstacles.”

Maha is running alongside her sister Nuha Hasan, a candidate for park district commissioner in Justice. The other three female candidates are Lina Zayed for Burbank School District 111 School Board, Rola Othman for Reavis High School District 220 School Board, and Itedal Shalabi for North Palos District 117 School Board.

“In the Arab community, who’s doing a lot of the leadership? It’s men,” said Shalabi, a woman in her early 40s also of Palestinian descent. In most Arab countries, women are not expected to get involved with government and instead rely on the men to take up issues with local officials, she said.

…Estimates for the state’s Arab population range from nearly 98,000 to 220,000.

…All seven candidates are backed by the Summit-based non-profit Project M, which advocates civic engagement among Arab Muslims.

“We want to turn things around. We don’t have to be a disempowered, marginalized community that complains all the time,” said Director of Project M Reema Ahmad, a young Arab Muslim woman who also wears the headscarf. “We’re going to take this governance by the reins so that we’re not just sitting around the political frame.”

…“We know that the positions we are running for are small,” said Shalabi, the candidate for the North Palos school board. “But someday they might take us to the White House.”

Project M or Mobilize is, according to their web site:

Project Mobilize or Project M is a 501(c)(4) tax-exempt non-profit organization dedicated to the education, development, and political advancement of the Muslim American community locally, statewide, and across the country.

Due to the political activities undertaken in the name of this organization, donations made to Project M are not tax deductible.

And they have only one-person listed on their Staff page…who was, or is, a CAIR employee:

Reema Ahmad is the Executive Director of Project Mobilize. She was previously Government Affairs Coordinator at CAIR-Chicago.

Furthermore, their Vision states:

A Muslim American lobby to be reckoned with will be functioning on behalf of the issues and concerns of this previously slighted population.

A CAIR offshoot? It sure appears to be, at least highly influenced and linked to the Hamas front group.

Project M aligns perfectly with the Muslim Brotherhood’s objective of a civilizational jihad:

In order for Islam and its Movement to become “a part of the homeland” in which it lives, “stable” in its land, “rooted” in the spirits and minds of its people, “enabled” in the live [sic] of its society and has firmly-established “organizations” on which the Islamic structure is built and with which the testimony of civilization is achieved, the Movement must plan and struggle to obtain “the keys” and the tools of this process in carry [sic] out this grand mission as a “Civilization Jihadist” responsibility which lies on the shoulders of Muslims and – on top of them – the Muslim Brotherhood in this country.

The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Proecess” with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny except for those who chose to slack. But, would the slackers and the Mujahedeen be equal…

  1. “Testimony of civilization?” OMG They are barbarians. They have no knowledge of civilization. They shouldn’t even be allowed to vote as they wouldn’t vote for anyone except another Muslim barbarian. Of course they’ll win, being from the most recent territory of our Muslim president. Must be a pocket of them in the suburbs of Chicago.
    Sharia, here we come.

  3. I’m expecting a fartwa to be issued at any moment! These muslimas are not sharia compliant! Women can not hold public office in Islam!

    Of course, all of islamic teachings can be suspended if there is a chance of achieving power over the enemy- very convenient “religion”.

  4. Since Islam treats women like chattels or worse, livestock, they have never had an original thought within their lack of culture.

    They are not capable of making any decisions, just like Obama is an incompetent fraud.

    Petted all his miserable life and told how great he is, yet the SOB has never accomplished anything of greatness.

    A total fraud and phony, who even lied saying he went to Columbia University, it is now well known that he did not attend Columbia ever.

    Just like his missing Birth Certificate, Obama is the biggest fraud in the history of the world.

    He will go down in history as the biggest scam and fraud ever to walk this planet, & so will the lamestream corrupt media who has aided and abetted this fraud and Jihadist.

  5. It doesn’t matter if it’s male or female , if it’s a muslim running for office anywhere in North America it is for one purpose and one purpose only, the promotion of the agenda of islam.

    • @when pigs fly TRUE ALL TRUE

      I say nuke all the bastards and do the entire rest of the world a favor.

      It’s that simple. I believe Muslims are what nukes were developed for.

  6. I’d be looking behind the scenes for who is bankrolling these muslimahs.. It could be Saudi funding or Obama…remember his first action as President was to call on Islams best and brightest American muslims to apply for 8000 positions in the White House Administration…just think! 8000 MUSLIMS are in official government jobs, some in sensitive security areas!! Who is monitoring this? Oh thats right! Obama! Get used to it, folks, until the muslim – in – Chief is booted out of the WH, the Islamic takeover of America will muslims will speed on with relentless force! these are jihadists with a mission!

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
