If there’s one statistic that explains the inspiration behind Muslim Brotherhood front group CAIR’s (Council of American-Islamic Relations) Muslim Youth Leadership Program it’s this: Since 2005, the proportion of Americans with a favorable view of Islam decreased by more than ten percent. (ONLY 10%? It must be a lot higher now)
Seattle Globalist Organizations like Hamas-affiliate CAIR exist to push back against Islamophobia and violence against Muslims that are common when those kinds of negative perceptions are so widespread. (It isn’t Islamophobia when Muslims really ARE trying to kill you)
In 2013, the CAIR-WA office received reports of over 350 cases of discrimination against Muslims in our state alone. (Oh, Boo Hoo)
Established four years ago, the Muslim Youth Leadership Program (MYLP) is part of CAIR-WA’s efforts to help Muslims to take a more active role in shaping the (false) portrayal of their communities in the media. (Just what we need, Muslim bagheads all over the media)
The free event, which took place in two sessions this month, concluding on Thursday, exposes Muslim youth to career opportunities in media, law, politics, and public relations, in order to equip them with the tools to shape misinformation, laws, and policy.
According to CAIR-WA’s Executive Director Arsalan Bukhari, there is an increasing need to encourage today’s Muslim youth — who tend to be more attracted to careers in science and technology — to enter these fields to change the current state of underrepresentation.
“Research shows that we have a lot of work to do to get Muslim youth into these fields, that Muslims are highly underrepresented, ” Bukhari said. “We need to help Muslim youth get their foot in the door — to shape the views of the public, and the depiction of Islam and Muslims. We need actual Muslims to represent themselves and to tell their own stories.” (In other words, to deceive infidels into believing that muslims are not what we all see they are)
