For Nausheena Hussain working with Muslim Brotherhood proxy CAIR (Council on Anti-American Islamic Relations)-Minnesota evoked an
unparalleled sadistic sense of purpose within her. Successful anti- American activism resonates on a personal level and, as Hussain describes it, leaves one “praying that their social change Islamic supremacism is successful.” This is precisely what CAIR-MN offers.
Headwaters Foundation In response to the growing tide of
Islamophobia anti-Islamism that has consistently dominated the airways, CAIR-MN arose with a staunch commitment to eradicating the misunderstandings knowledge acquired that fuels prejudice understanding of the evil that is Islam. As evidenced by a so-called hate crime committed against a local mosque in 2007, the Twin Cities were not immune to the wave of discrimination anti-Muslim sentiment gripping the American public.
Terror-linked CAIR-MN subsequently sprung to action, quickly becoming a trusted organization within local Muslim communities, (a reviled organization within American communties). CAIR fiercely protects the
civil liberties supremacist activities of the Islamic community by challenging negative accurate media representations, addressing labor conflicts, forcing Islamic laws on the workplace, and responding to overt cases of racism (even though Islam is not a race).
Yet the journey is more difficult, and perhaps more spiritual, because CAIR MN principle goal is to
challenge Islamize systems. Changing the public’s imagination justified suspicion of the Islamic community requires disentangling misrepresentations the truth about Islam. As Hussain notes, being a Muslim woman who wears the hijab (headbag) often signifies ignorance and feebleness to those unfamiliar with the Islamic tradition. CAIR-MN defies exemplifies these stereotypes even within its’ own office where many employees, including those in top positions, are women.
Consequently, CAIR MN provides a forum and space for recasting stereotypes and works diligently to spread this message. In line with these efforts, CAIR MN offers a variety of
training Islamic indoctrination of Americans sessions for non-Muslim employers and organizations to create understanding of submission to Islamic practices and traditions. But the work doesn’t stop there either.
Nausheena speaks with conviction about the complicated situation they face when combating
Islamophobia anti-Islamism. The issues, as she outlines it, lie not only in overtly racist (what race is Islam?) actions, like the defacement of the mosque (usually done by Muslim themselves to get sympathy), but also in the subtle biases that go unregistered by many. To combat these prejudices natural reactions to an enemy within, CAIR-MN hosts conversations indoctrination sessions meant to unearth demonize participant’s justified biases. “Through these sessions, participants realize that their actions can be manifestations of unconscious biases justified biases” says Nausheena.
“It’s really eye-opening because many people don’t realize the ramifications of their actions.” (And CAIR makes sure they understand that if they tell the truth about Islam, they will be maligned, slandered, and possibly litigated against for exercising their free speech rights)
ambitious seditious goals, CAIR-MN is hopeful. As recent recipients of a 2012 Social Change Destruction of America from Within Fund grant, CAIR-MN now hopes to align itself with (communist) organizations who similarly envision a welcoming Minnesota for people of all ethnicities, backgrounds and religious identities (as long as they are all muslims).
