If the mission is to find an American who does not support American greatness, [Ibtihaj] Muhammad is an excellent choice. To say she’s not a fan of the United States is to put it mildly. Part of her “role model” behavior is denouncing this country. The Daily Beast headlined her claim: “I’m Not Safe In The U.S.” She denounced a “climate of anti-Islamic sentiment in the United States” and said she “had someone follow me home from practice and try to report me to police … right on 28th and 7th in New York City.”

Columnist Pamela Geller displayed a 2008 social media post in which Muhammad posted a picture of another Muslim woman, Leila Khaled, who made history as the first female hijacker of an airplane, working with the terrorist group Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. In the photo, Khaled is holding a gun and smiling. Next to the photo, Muhammad wrote in a comment, “me with a gun.”
In that same spirit, Muhammad’s Twitter page carried a series of #FreePalestine hashtags and nasty headlines against Israel, including “Israel accused of war crimes by UK Parliament,” “Bolivia declares Israel a terrorist state” and “Israel Guilty of Ethnic Cleansing and Apartheid, Says UN Rapporteur.”
This hater should carry our flag of freedom?
Leila Khaled is and an airline hijacker — a terrorist with the ‘Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine’ (PFLP). Leila Khaled participated in the multiple hijacking of five jetliners in 1970.
If Ibtihaj Muhammad is a poster girl for anything, it’s how the enemies of freedom have seized the narrative — demonizing the good and exalting the evil. Continue reading
