Islamist Gloats Over Victory Over 'Zionist Hollywood'

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch

Islamic supremacist activist Cyrus McGoldrick, a former official of Hamas-linked CAIR’s New York chapter, is thumping his chest on his Facebook page over ABC’s cancellation of Alice in Arabia:

Getting ‪#‎AliceInArabia‬ cancelled was a good move – I’m glad it got done so quickly, too. These skirmishes with Zionist Hollywood should be easy and decisive, and I’m so pleasantly surprised that this was. S/o to ADC, CAIR, and the many individuals who stormed the internet and handled this.

I have a question, though, based on what activists said in media: Is “representation” the issue? Do we really need film terrorists played by real Arabs as opposed to random brown people? Do we really want to spend time asking the US military (the greatest force of destruction in decades) to accommodate religious beliefs so we can join it?

Wouldn’t it be better to turn off the mainstream TV networks? Wouldn’t it be better to oppose military recruitment in our communities?

My connection of culture with war is deliberate. Shows like “Homeland” are bullets in imperialist guns.

McGoldrick, who is now Executive Director of Majlis ash-Shura of Metro New York and Outreach Director of the National Coalition to Protect Civil Freedoms, is a particularly thuggish Islamic supremacist who has threatened Muslims who talked to law enforcement:

He has done this more than once. He has also cheerfully defamed terrorism researcher Steven Emerson on Twitter. So it’s no surprise that he would include this ugly whiff of Islamic antisemitism in his Facebook message, as well as suggest that the resistance to jihad terrorism is entirely a function of the U.S. imperialist war machine (an increasingly risible claim in the age of Obama, as American influence and power are nearing total collapse).

He has questions, and so I will answer them:

Is “representation” the issue? Do we really need film terrorists played by real Arabs as opposed to random brown people?

Yes, we need jihad terrorists on film — at least in films that purport to deal with the threat of terrorism, as the global jihad is the world’s largest single terror threat today. Any presentation on terrorism that ignores or downplays it is dishonest. Must they be Arabs, or “brown people”? Absolutely not — and McGoldrick’s question reflects his assumption (whether sincerely held or used as a tactic, I don’t know) that those who oppose jihad terror are motivated by racism. In reality, the jihad imperative is believed in and advanced by people of all races. A good movie could be made about the life journeys of Adam Gadahn or John Walker Lindh, white Americans who converted to Islam and ended up joining jihad terror groups. Would McGoldrick consider such a film (which would never be made, since in reality what McGoldrick calls “Zionist Hollywood” is almost entirely subservient to the Islamic supremacist agenda of avoiding any topic that could be construed by groups like Hamas-linked CAIR and individuals like McGoldrick as offensive to Islam.

Do we really want to spend time asking the US military (the greatest force of destruction in decades) to accommodate religious beliefs so we can join it?

“The greatest force of destruction in decades.” In any case, aside from that noxious and inaccurate remark, McGoldrick assumes that the US military doesn’t accommodate religious beliefs. On what does he base this? Did it not bend over backwards to accommodate Major Nidal Malik Hasan, promoting and praising him even after the jihadist sentiments that ultimately led him to murder thirteen Americans in the cause of Islam at Fort Hood became well known? Did it not change its uniform policy to accommodate Muslims who wanted to wear a turban? This is an example of how, in their endless quest to portray themselves as victims and thus as entitled to special accommodation, Islamic supremacists and Leftists depart from reality and enter into the realm of absolute fantasy.

Wouldn’t it be better to turn off the mainstream TV networks? Wouldn’t it be better to oppose military recruitment in our communities?

Well, Cyrus, you’re already opposing Muslims working with law enforcement officials to stop jihad terror plots, so such recommendations are at least consistent.

“My connection of culture with war is deliberate. Shows like ‘Homeland’ are bullets in imperialist guns.”

Maybe. But this is certain: the cancellation of shows like Alice in Arabia under pressure from a Hamas-linked Islamic supremacist group is a battle won in that same war.
