American Muslim Olympian Bashes America and then Mocks Victims of Muslim Extremism
Ibtihaj Muhammad is one of the world’s best athletes and a champion fencer. She also happens to be both Muslim and American, and so she competes for the red, white and blue in Rio’s 2016 Olympic games.
Sadly, Muhammad’s spectacular athletic talent is now being overshadowed by her ridiculous personal opinions and her poor personal choices.
First, Muhammad chose to air her unfounded and irrational fears about American racism in the days leading up to the Olympics. In an interview with the Daily Beast Muhammad, a New Yorker, said that she lives in constant fear of violence because of her Muslim faith.
“[I feel unsafe] all the time. I had someone follow me home from practice and try to report me to police,” she said. “And this is right on 28th and 7th in New York City.”
“I’m very vocal about these things because I want people to know I’m not a novelty, I’m not special in any way, I’m a woman who wears hijab and these are my experiences,” Muhammad said.
Muhammad, who came second to Michael Phelps in the vote for who should carry the U.S. flag at the Opening Ceremony on Friday, said the country is at crossroads.
“I want people to know that as hard as [these racist incidents] are on me, they don’t come even close to things we’ve seen like the shooting in North Carolina or the rhetoric around the Khan family at the DNC. It’s ridiculous and we as a country have to change and I feel like this is our moment.”
There is so much wrong with her commentary above. Where is this terrible rash of Islamophobia? According to the FBI, 57% of religiously motivated attacks in 2014 were focused against… JEWS. Not Muslims. In fact, out of the 1140 anti-religious hate crimes that year:
648 were attacks on Jews
184 were attacks on Muslims
98 were attacks on Christians (Catholic and Protestant)
So, let’s just be clear… there is no reason to fear anti-Muslim violence in America today.
Check out this picture she took that is now spreading like wildfire across the Internet.

Yea, that’s her playfully being beheaded by a friend with a sabre (sword) while this actual thing is happening all across the Muslim world as we speak. It’s not funny. Not remotely.
