Irshad Manji’s WTF Tweet of the Day

 

Irshad Manji with Islamophobe Salman Rushdie

Irshad Manji’s WTF Tweet of the Day

(Update I below)

Muammar Gaddafi’s regime collapsed yesterday, as the capital Tripoli was liberated by freedom-fighters.  As people all over the world rejoiced–including Libyans and Muslims across the globe–this is what faux-progressive Muslim Irshad Manji had to say; she tweeted:

Regardless of what happens in #Libya, may the victims of Pan Am 103 be at rest.” #Qaddafi #Tripoli

Ahmed Rehab tweeted in response:

WTF tweet of the day: @IrshadManji: “Regardless of what happens in #Libya, may the victims of Pan Am 103 be at rest.” #Qaddafi #Tripoli

Rehab described Manji’s tweet in the best possible manner: a WTF tweet.  WTF, indeed.

(“Pan Am 103″ is referencing a terrorist attack in the 1980′s, in which about 270 people were killed.  Libyans were implicated in this attack.  As one reader pointed out, it was actually Gaddafi himself, but Irshad Manji won’t let that fact bother her too much–it was those damn Libyans!)

In any case, a twitter war ensued thereafter, with one person responding to Manji saying:

and how about the 20 thousand Libyans who died in battle fighting Qadafi?

To which Manji replied:

Steering in the new direction!

Some brothers have asked me why I haven’t posted my thoughts about the political uprisings and on similar topics lately. I have noticed that too, most of my posts lately have been related to Islam.

You see there comes a time in your life when a lot of things happen to you very quickly and all those events folding in your life direct you to a common realization. Probably you have experienced that! Something like that has happened in my life.

Great read on the current situation of the US Boat to Gaza “The Audacity of Hope.”

Israel Battles Gaza Flotilla on Two Fronts By James M. Wall A year ago, the Israeli Defense Force handed Israel one of its worst media defeats in modern history. Israeli commandos, filled with their government’s propaganda that Israel’s security was at stake, landed on the Turkish ship Mavi Marmara, ready for battle and determined to keep the ship from breaking Israel’s control over Gaza’s shores. Nine Turkish citizens were killed, one of whom was a Turkish-American. This year Israel took … Read More

By Umer Sultan| As posted at AnnArbor.com

For 23 years, Tunisia was ruled by the iron fist regime of Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali. Secret agents were in every corner of the country to make sure no Continue reading

Review: “Palestine: Peace not Apartheid by Jimmy Carter”

Published in 2006, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter wrote about the history of the attempts of peace negotiations between the State of Israel and its Arab neighbors, including the issue of a Palestinian State. Jimmy Carter has been actively involved in the peace process through out his life.

Mr. Carter included a brief historical chronology of the Palestine/Israel region, starting from 1900 B.C. when “Abraham journeys from Ur to Canaan” to the August of 2006 when “the United Nations approves its  Resolution 1701, establishing a fragile cease-fire.
