It should come as no surprise that sharia-compliant Muslim candidate Abdul El-Sayed has allied himself with a toxic Muslim extremist bigot like Linda Sarsour.
Frontpage On August 7, Michigan’s citizens will be going to their polling booths to vote in gubernatorial primaries. Attorney General Bill Schuette and Lt. Gov. Brian Calley are vying for the GOP ticket. Democratic candidates have whittled to three; former state Senate leader Gretchen Whitmer, business executive Shri Thanedar and former state health official Abdul El-Sayed.
When it comes to El-Sayed, two age-old adages come to mind; “Don’t judge a book by its cover,” and “A man can be judged by the company he keeps.” On paper, El-Sayed has an impressive resume – he’s a doctor, Rhodes Scholar, and former director of the Detroit Health Department, but he is also member of the regressive socialist Left and has Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez squarely in his corner.
El-Sayed also maintains close ties to the foul-mouthed racist Linda Sarsour and that says a lot about what kind of person El-Sayed is. El-Sayed is a sly fellow and has been careful to steer clear of the Arab-Israeli dispute so as not to overtly alienate an important constituency. In at least one instance, El-Sayed punted when asked an unsolicited question on the Mideast; “I’m running for governor of Michigan,” he answered.
Sarsour, openly called for a “jihad” against President Trump at the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) convention in Chicago in 2017.
But its his association with sharia law proponent Linda Sarsour that should raise alarm bells. Sarsour is an anti-Semite to her core and is on record trash-talking about the Jewish media, Zionism and Israel. She infamously tweeted that there is “nothing creepier than Zionism,” and asserted that Zionism and feminism are incompatible. Yet at the same time championed Saudi-style Sharia law, which subjugates women and imposes on them institutional second class citizenship.
Sarsour, who touts herself to be a leading women’s rights activist, is in actuality, anything but. She infamously lashed out at two leading female critics and noted on social media that she “wish[ed]…to take their vaginas away.” One of the victims of Sarsour’s invective was herself a victim of female genital mutilation.
Last year, Sarsour voiced support for Assata Shakur, a murderer who killed a New Jersey state trooper in a 1973 shootout. That support even prompted pushback and criticism from CNN’s Jake Tapper. The thinned-skinned Sarsour then bizarrely accused Tapper of being a member of the “alt-right.”
But perhaps most disconcerting is Sarsour’s unabashed support for the unrepentant Jew-hater, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
There was a time when any association with Farrakhan, even among Democrats, would be the death knell of any political career beyond the confines of garbage collector. In 2005 for example, a smiling Barack Obama was photographed with Farrakhan but the photo was deep-sixed and never saw the light of day until two years after the completion of his two terms.
As one correspondent with the Middle East Forum put it, both the Muslim Brotherhood and militant jihadists will “shout Allahu Akbar and bomb Israel, support jihad, and support the violation of the rights of women and non-Muslims. One will do it openly and loudly while wearing his primitive Islamic dress and his untidy beard, but the other will be a PhD holder from Oxford University or the Sorbonne, and he will do it cunningly and secretly while wearing his German or French suit and a tidy beard, from an air-conditioned office, all the while making deals with the Americans.” (Counter Jihad Report, August 11, 2017)
So the ideal Brotherhood politician would be someone who secretly harbors radical Islamic convictions, but looks, acts, and talks like a mainstream, major-party candidate. This candidate would not hide his Muslim identity, but instead would leverage it for political advantage, making Islam sound moderate and appealing to values like multiculturalism…(just like Abdul El-Sayed).

Abdulrahman Mohamed El-Sayed has substantial connections to the Muslim Brotherhood in both his past and present. So the suspicion that El-Sayed may harbor Islamist convictions and be a Trojan horse are not unfounded, especially given the reality of what some have dubbed a “stealth jihad.” (Jihad Watch, August 10, 2017)
At the University of Michigan, El-Sayed was vice-president of the Muslim Student Association, an affiliate of the Muslim Brotherhood. (PJ Media, Sept 5, 2017)

In 2012, when he was in med school, El-Sayed received a Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowship. Paul, George Soros’s brother. Some sources maintain that the Soros empire is funding El-Sayed’s campaign and grooming him to eventually become president. George Soros is quoted as saying: “The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States…”(PJ Media, Sept 5, 2017)
Repeatedly, El-Sayed has described himself as a devout Muslim: he prays several times a day; he has said that “his Islamic values are at the center of his work as a civil servant”; his father is an imam. If he’s a devout Muslim, that means he firmly supports sharia law. But how does he square this with his purported approval of secular government? Is he a devout Muslim or a devout believer in the separation of religion and state? You can’t be both. (PJ Media, Sept 5, 2017)
While a student at the University of Michigan, El-Sayed was “an active member” and vice-president of the Muslim Students’ Association (MSA) – a group founded mainly by members of the Muslim Brotherhood for the express purpose of spreading Wahhabist ideology — an austere form of Islam that insists on literal interpretation of the Quran and views those who disagree as enemies. According to terrorism expert Patrick Poole, the MSA “has been a virtual terror factory. Time after time after time again, we see these terrorists . . . MSA leaders, MSA presidents, MSA national presidents — who’ve been implicated, charged and convicted in terrorist plots.” (Jihad Watch, August 10, 2017)
ABDUL EL-SAYED HAS PLANS TO “FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORM” MICHIGAN!
Abdulrahman Mohamed El Sayed has played his hand very well to the constituents of Michigan! Many have fallen under his spell and many are just part of the plan, working very hard for his final solution.
- He has core Muslims siding with him only because he is Muslim, no other qualification!
- He has the millennials jumping up & down on his every word! Smiling, hoping he will pick them to stand with in front of the camera!
- He has the Marxist/Socialist liberal left just waiting for every opportunity to show support!
- He has known unindicted co-conspirators in clearly defined court cases, standing with him in support and in some cases are identified as his “de-facto” campaign manager.
- His platform and his Sharia compliant beliefs collide, but when pressed for an answer, he has none!
- His anti-Israel stand and support of Gaza, yet this topic is never asked during the campaign.
- His hard cored Muslim Brotherhood history and background are NEVER questioned by any of the Michigan media. Yet, when one opposing candidate does (Patrick Colbeck), Abdul’s reply is: “You may not hate Muslims, but Muslims definitely hate you!”
