Soft jihadi, Omar Khalidi’s Biased MIT Conference April 2010
Posted by jagoindia on April 10, 2010
The conference is this weekend at MIT is Organized by Omar Khalidi who is staff at MIT. Information about Omar Khalidi can be found in the book ‘Defeating Political Islam’ by Moorthy Muthuswamy that received good reviews from Washington Review. ( In that book the author wrote about 2 pages on Omar Khalidi). The conference is selective in its speakers and topics to paint a given picture.
Mr. Omar Khalidi advocates different laws for Muslims such as Polygamy etc, different constituencies for Muslims to elect Muslim lawmakers, would have issues with Christian nature of USA and is known even by Muslims as someone who selects his data to paint a picture that suits Islamic agenda. Some people are of opinion he is what you call ’soft’ jihadi.
In addition, one of the speakers Mr. Mukul Sinha has apparently written with a welcoming tone on terror attack on World Trade Center. Other speaker Anjana Chatterjee said sending money to help families of firefighters at World Trade Center attack was anti-Muslim.
Such speakers may not be Jihadi’s but they are “Jihadi enablers” by espousing the causes of Jihadis through selective use of data, lies and deception that provides fodder for jihadi recruitment and their acts. Today there are talking about countries outside USA (in this case India), but when the forces are stronger, they will turn against US from within.
