"Answer the Question!"

Hat tip to Global Infidal TV for the video

If you have never attended one of these Islamic events where the speaker spouts all kinds of disinformation about Sharia and related subjects (as I have), it's a good idea to know what to expect if you have a pointed question. In the below video, Parvez Ahmed, a professor and ex-CAIR official in Florida, is confronted with a question about the rights of women under Sharia. (I believe the questioner is Randy McDaniels, of ACT for America in Jacksonville, who is an expert on the topic.)

In these events, question and answer sessions tend to be structured in such a way as to limit the number of questioners and prevent follow-up questions. Even if the events are sponsored by Christian or Jewish groups or places of worship, you can expect the sponsors to run interference and protect the speaker from having to deal with uncomfortable questions to the extent possible. It is clear that Ahmed did not want to deal with a well-thought out question from one who was armed with passages from The Reliance of the Traveler, a book highly regarded within Islamic scholarship and jurisprudence which serves as a guide for Muslims in non-Muslim countries.

Those who are active in promoting Islam and Sharia know the hard questions, and they are armed with their talking points in response. The trick is to get beneath the talking points and show the deception. I never recommend becoming disruptive because it makes you look like the bad guy, and people like Ahmed will (as he did above) try to paint you as a bigot. At the very least, if you can't get all your questions or points in, you can document the deception. That is why your questions should be videotaped by a friendly colleague.

In the above case, the video captures Ahmed's reluctance to answer the question and the efforts of the event's sponsors to shut down the questioners. (The poster on the wall indicates the event was sponsored by Americans United for Separation of Church and State-rather ironic)

It must have been tough for the speaker to answer such a straightforward (documented) question. Obviously, he can't answer truthfully and his argument falls apart.
All he can do is call the questioner a "bigot".

The major point being made here is the fact that more and more Americans are becoming aware of "Political Islam" and calling the Islamists out when they try to use sanctioned deception to fool them. The Citizen in the video was wise to use the "Reliance of the Traveler" as his guide to exposing political Islam and its pure sharia law, which is not compatable with the U.S. Constitution. Let us hope that this scene is repeated throughout the U.S.

The last refuge of a scoundrel is to call their opponent names. In this case it is bigor.
