Out of Touch

MWU supremo Ahmed Nassef has repeatedly claimed that his website is the MOST popular Muslim American website, with more page hits than either CAIR or ISNA, hence we should all donate generously to their fund drive. This is based on Alexa ratings.

Ignoring the many discrepancies of the Alexa ranking system I took the liberty of verifying this claim, and while MWU ranks above CAIR and ISNA, its clearly left in the dust by Islamicity. So much for being number one. Even if we were to accept the mendacious claim that MWU is the most popular Muslim American website, the question remains how relevant is their message? More importantly, are they in touch with issues which concern the Muslim American community?

Last week, two masjids were burnt to the ground; the week before a Sikh-owned gas station was the target of arson. This week, a Muslim family was targeted by gunfire as they sat to eat dinner in their Arizona home. Alhamdulilah, there was no loss of life in these cases of domestic terrorism.

Yet no mention is made of this or any other hate crime on the self declared “most popular Muslim American website.” Kind of makes you wonder what they deem worthy of their collective progressive gaze. The sort of message one gets is “let the adults worry about real world stuff while we enjoy and promote soft pornography, call prominent Islamic personalities “f*gs” and “homos,” and impersonate officials from CAIR."

Those who don’t agree and fall in line will be prominently labelled “neo-Salafis” and “Muslim Pat Robertsons.” It's sadly apparent that MWU is out of touch with reality.

I missed it when MMK called Imam Siraj Wahhaj that slur. That would be unbelievably hypocritical on a website-- and from a group --that promotes acceptance of openly homosexual people who call themselves Muslim.

Thanks for the 411 Dr. M

Salaam Ninhajaba,
Oh yeah, Michael Knight has a serious beef with Sirraj Wahhaj and Ibrahim Hooper of CAIR. In fact, some goofy Muslim band wrote a song called "Rumi was a homo," where Imam Wahhaj gets slammed. He's been after him for a while now. There's just something weird about a young guy going after an older man like that. It might be some kind of inferiority complex.
