Muslim group: Over 150 Muslims across the U.S. have filed to run for public office this year

That’s 60 more Muslims than WAPO reported were running in April. (link at end)

Using an umbrella to keep the summer rain from soaking her hijab, Saima Farooqui peered down at a list of registered Democrats near her Coconut Creek home.

In what has been called a “Muslim blue wave” — or a Muslim-led referendum on Trump’s kind of rhetoric — over 150 American Muslims across the nation have filed to run for public office this year, according to the national Muslim civil rights group Emgage.

“I feel like the demographics have changed but the representation has not,” Farooqui said Sunday afternoon before she and her family walked the district knocking on doors. “That’s where I really felt a strong necessity of going out and doing something.”

Since the Muslim holy month of Ramadan began in May, Farooqui has been fasting and campaigning. The first-time candidate is hoping to earn a spot in the Florida House of Representatives representing District 96, which covers a large swath of Broward County that includes Parkland, home of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

For the most part, she says, the strangers she has met throughout the district are friendly and supportive of her run. But the reactions to her traditional headscarf and her slight accent haven’t been all good. One of the last times she knocked on the door of a conservative couple in her Broward County district — she hesitates now as she walks by homes with pickup trucks and oversized American flags — they kicked her off the property and nearly let their dog loose, her husband said. Farooqui fled running.

“You have to have a strong heart,” her son said. “You have to deal with people getting in your face for no reason.”

There were an estimated 3.4 million Muslims living in the U.S. in 2017, up from 2.3 million in 2007, according to the Pew Research Center.

She currently serves as the secretary of the American Muslim Democratic Caucus of Florida and as the vice president of the Coconut Creek Democratic Club.

School safety is a major pillar of her platform, which also mentions “common sense gun control” and anti-discrimination policies. She will face off against incumbent Democratic Rep. Kristin Jacobs, the former mayor of Broward County, in the Aug. 28 open primary. There are no Republicans running for the seat.

Jacobs has raised $26,639 as of the current filing period, and is certainly the favorite in this bout. Her political contributors include Walmart and NextEra Energy, the corporate parent of Florida Power & Light.

Jacobs and Farooqui had breakfast together a few weeks ago and expressed admiration for each other.

“She seems like a very nice person who was gracious and even told me that she and her husband and her friend all had voted for me and were very supportive of the things I have done while in office,” Jacobs told the Miami Herald. “I believe it is fair to say that we both respect this process and recognize that by no means is this ‘my’ seat and that it belongs to the voters and the people who live here.”

Farooqui qualified for the primary via petition — collecting the requisite 1,083 signatures rather than paying a qualifying fee — and her canvassing crew consists of her son, college-aged daughter and husband.

They walk rain or shine and have faith that their mobilization of Muslims in the area may help her over the hump. A friend of the family serves as “de-facto” campaign manager, although Farooqui says everyone helps.


Read it all. Then think forward 25 years or more. Muslims have a plan. Do you?

As for the supposed Muslim civil rights group, Emgage, they are a sharia rights group and are pushing sharia candidates across the U.S.

    • Knowledge of what these people(infil-traitors) believe in is absolutely vital. Reading a few books or tracts may make the hair on your neck to straighten out (not a good idea to read close to bedtime).

      Muslims are not here to assimilate. The Koran makes it explicit that they are to conquer lands to establish a global caliphate for Allah by any means possible. In their scenario, lying and any form of deceipt is not only permissable but encouraged and in some cases mandated.
      One excellent primer and reference is “SHARIA LAW FOR NON-MUSLIMS” which can easily be perused in under two hours. Written by Bill Warner, PHD; Center for the study of Political Islam; ISBN 0-9795794-8-1.
      These migrants are Allah’s soldiers and they don’t even need a Trojan Horse to hide in. They are bold and in the open so they can twist our own laws to mean something quite different than normal people would interpret.

    • Islam, by law, is prohibited from US immigration

      http://www.usacarry.com/forums/off-topic/53275-islam-law-prohibited-us-immigration.html

      The Immigration and Nationality Act passed June 27, 1952 revised the laws relating to immigration, naturalization, and nationality for the United States. That act, which became Public Law 414, established both the law and the intent of Congress regarding the immigration of Aliens to the US and remains in effect today. Among the many issues it covers, one in particular, found in Chapter 2 Section 212, is the prohibition of entry to the US if the Alien belongs to an organization seeking to overthrow the government of the United States by “force, violence, or other unconstitutional means.” This, by its very definition, rules out Islamic immigration to the United States, but this law is being ignored by the White House.

      Excerpt more:

      Islamic immigration to the US would be prohibited under this law because the Koran, Sharia Law and the Hadith all require complete submission to Islam, which is antithetical to the US government, the Constitution, and to the Republic. All Muslims who attest that the Koran is their life’s guiding principal subscribe to submission to Islam and its form of government. Now the political correct crowd would say that Islamists cannot be prohibited from entering the US because Islam is a religion. Whether it is a religion is immaterial because the law states that Aliens who are affiliated with any “organization” that advocates the overthrow of our government are prohibited. It also prohibits those who distribute literature that advocates the overthrow of our country, which would include the Koran.

      In fact, there are many verses in the Koran that command Islamists to kill those who do not submit to allah and the prophet. If Congress so desired to hold the White House accountable to the current immigration of refugees (which also must comply with the law), it has the Immigration and Nationality Act to cite. The Administration is breaking that law. The question is “does Congress have the political will to do something about it?” Or shall we be a nation like that in Isaiah 59:14 where, “justice is turned back, and righteousness stands afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.” I think you know the answer, at least for now. But there are a handful of Congressmen who are studying this. Pray.

      • Yes, I have read this before that it was against the Law for Muslim’s to ever come to the United States. Why are they allowed to run for Government Office in the United States. They cannot and Will NOT live by our laws and we WILL have a Muslim Government if they are allowed to do this. Please American’s I hope we are ALL smart enough to NOT let this happen or we will be unindated with their laws.

  1. Avoids houses with pick-up trucks and American flags………….. doing a little profiling herself…… eh?
    What does it say about a politician who avoids the American flag………… What would they be likely to do in office ?………….. Says it all, doesn’t it ?

      • Funny it is hard even when people get in their face for no reason really! I could write a novel starting from the time the Pilgrims hit the shores of what would become America. Although we were in no way perfect either the Moores (Muslims) were far worse to this country it took awhile but our Navy was originally created due to this group.

  3. Just take a look at what has happened to Britain. Once The Muslims had infiltrated the local political offices, including the police department and courts, they turned Britain into an islamic state. Were rape gangs groom young British girls as young as 10 years old, where women are raped on the street because they’re walking alone. And when the fathers complain to the law it is and fathers who get arrested not the grooming gangs. Don’t let this happen in America.

    • Does this remind you of the Klu Klux Klan?
      If a black American went to report a crime to the local police chief, little did he know that the police chief had a second career riding at night and leading his clan.

    • VOTES. It’s all about votes.
      As soon as a politician gets sworn in s(he) immediately starts planning the re-election campaign.
      Hell, if they get thrown in jail, they will even run for office from jail.
      We need to vet and ask questions better than we do before we push the button.
      Just b/c someone is stupid and incompetent doesn’t mean they should be elected.

    • Stop these people from running for ANY AND ALL public office. If they aren’t a citizen how are they allowed to run? This is how they are contributing to rule and reign this Country. What are American’s thinking allowing this type of thing to take place? STOP THIS NOW before it even gets started!!!!!!!!!

      • I couldn’t agree more!
        Those that are running may be citizens. But this should certainly be the first thing to be verified.

        They will agressively seek the support of uninformed sympathetic citizens who probably will ask no questions and mindlessly attach their names. To paraphrase a Biblical quote; “My people perish for lack of knowledge”.
        It’s obvious who the muslims will vote for. That’s one of the main reasons they want to significantly increase their population. It’s about numbers.
        If any questions are raised, lying is expected and warranted if it advances the cause of Islam.
        The only way to slow them down is if enough of the native population wises up as to what they are doing.

  4. She is Vice President of Coconut Creek Democratic Party Club. This is what is going on throughout the State of Florida. CAIR & Muslim Brotherhood infiltrating the Democratic Party. Jumping on the Anti-Trump bandwagon and spewing their lies. More important the islamists are moving up the leadership ladder within the City & County Democratic Party hierarchy, gaining leadership positions and ultimately run for office, under the Democratic Party ticket. The Democratic Party is done! America’s Constitutional Republic is under fire

    • Tells us everything we need to know about the Democratic Party.
      The Muslims and Democrats are allying themselves to become a larger voting block. Democratic Party has been taken over by hate mongering mindless liberals.
      It’s a never ending battle between good vs. evil.
      We need to keep asking questions (last I checked, the Constituion doesn’t protect anyone from getting offended) and keeping our guard up to defend ourselves and the next generation.

  5. This is a prime example of ‘civilization jihad’ and should and must be resisted or we will awake one day under sharia with a Constitution in name only.
