A Saudi news outlet writes a hit piece on the two new Muslim women elected to the U.S. Congress?

Truth is often stranger than fiction, and yes, this really just happened. Al Arabiya, a pro-government, Saudi-owned pan-Arab news outlet, just lambasted Somali American Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Palestinian American Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) for their ties with Linda Sarsour, U.S. Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups and a plethora of other individuals who share the Brotherhood's Islamist political project.


Al Arabiya makes its case by showing how the Democratic party's quest to wrest control of Congress "led to an alliance with political Islamist movements ... pushing Muslim candidates and women activists of immigrant minorities onto the electoral scene."

The Saudi's mortal enemy is Iran. There is no love lost in the kingdom for former President Obama and his Democratic cohorts for pushing Congress out of the way to make room for the controversial Iran nuclear deal, which deposited billions of dollars into the hands of the ayatollahs and helped foster their nefarious plans for regional hegemony in the Middle East.

The Saudis are equally threatened by the Muslim Brotherhood, whose quest for power over Middle East governments was beginning to be realized in the Arab Spring. The Brotherhood also enjoyed large support by the Obama administration, both in Egypt and by US-linked Brotherhood groups which were considered by the White House as their "top" outreach partners.


As the Saudi news outlet noted, "The common ground between Congresswomen Omar and Tlaib is that both are anti-Trump ... especially his foreign policy starting from the sanctions on Iran to the isolation of the Muslim Brotherhood and all movements of political Islam."

Al Arabiya considers the sponsorship and support received by the two Muslim candidates as a tactic employed by Islamists to infiltrate Congress through the immigrant and Black communities as well as through women's groups, as represented by their prominent Islamist spokesperson, Linda Sarsour.

Al Arabiya calls Sarsour a "Palestinian American activist ... with roots in Muslim Brotherhood and a member of the Council on American-Islamic Relations [CAIR]." The piece documents at length Sarsour's ties to these and other Islamist and terrorists groups and causes.

Of course, the irony of the piece is ever present to those of us in the West who would first and foremost want to say to say to the Saudis: Get your own house in order first.



The sharia principles that rule the kingdom - which make women second class citizens and human rights non-existent, not to mention the lack of a democratic system of government -- are, of course, not too different than the theocratic rule in Iran or the Muslim Brotherhood's goal of establishing a worldwide caliphate.

The exportation of Saudi Arabia's Wahhabist theology to mosques and madrassas worldwide has certainly contributed to as much global terrorism as that which has been sponsored by the mullahs running the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Yet, in the end, the Al Arabiya piece is worth the read. Just maybe some of the ideas in it will wear off on Saudi Arabia itself.
