Dalia Mogahed on the Daily Show with Trevor Noah


Excellent interview with Dalia Mogahed on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. Mogahed hits excellent points regarding issues relating to “theories of radicalization,” “terrorism,” and also questions about the hijab and oppression. Trevor asks her a question about liberals who make statements like “not every Muslim is a terrorist but every terrorist is a Muslim,” and responds with essentially the same fact we presented over 5 years ago in the article, “All terrorists are Muslims except the 94% who aren’t.”

    Not sure why I thought a good faith discussion could ever happen on a site devoted to defending Islam. But please keep speaking up on behalf of this totalitarian political ideology. The more the public hears about Islam, the more obvious it is that it is a violent belief system defended by dishonest and disingenuous people.

    I have seen Dalia Mogahed speak twice now on her choice to wear a hijab. What she has omitted both times is that particular clothing is not a choice for many, perhaps millions, of women in the Islamic world. You seem to believe, or are maybe trying to convince others, that that omission is insignificant. I believe it is very significant and it should be pointed out whenever women make a point of saying that their wearing of a hijab is a choice.

    And of course she should be “allowed” to wear a hijab if she wants to. (You make a lot of incorrect assumptions.) In fact, I would rather that she be honest about what she believes. And if she or any other American citizen supports sharia law, that person should renounce his U.S. citizenship and go live somewhere that sharia is practiced.

    When I see a woman in a hijab, especially someone raised in the U.S. like Dalia Mogahed appears to have been, I don’t wonder if she is oppressed or brainwashed, etc, but I do wonder if she is committed to sharia law. Islam as a political ideology is supremacist and totalitarian. It is incompatible with the rights and freedoms we enjoy in the U.S.

    Ms Mogahed should also be honest that while she may have made a choice to wear a hijab, for countless Muslim women, their way of dressing, along with most other decisions, are dictated to them and there is no option to refuse.

    Interesting that people listen to her or give her a platform considering she has no degree in Islamic studies. Anyone with a $5 Koran can put themselves up as an expert in Islam. Much like how they do it in christianity.

    She seems like a bright, cheery person 🙂 I think if people like her were the face of Islam, hate would go down.
