His name is Tariq Ramadan and he is the grandson of Hasan Al-Banna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood. Tariq had been banned from entry into the United States until Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signed papers that lifted that ban in 2009 (Huma Abedin’s influence on Hillary is of significance for obvious reasons).
Ramadan is your typical, soft-spoken doublespeak artist who loves to portray himself as a tolerant pacifist who has interest in nothing other than interfaith dialogue. In reality, he’s a professional who has marinated in the tactics of stealth jihad for years. With that as a backdrop, check out his interview with Myriam Francois-Cerrah, who bemoans the faux-mistreatment of Muslims in France.
Before watching the video, how about some glass-is-half-full logic? Why is Ramadan spending his time attempting to stem the anti-Islamic tide in France? Didn’t that country just elect a pro-Muslim socialist named Francois Hollande?
Well, yes, but a consequence of that election appears to have been a bit of an awakening in France.
Doublespeak artists like Ramadan will be exposed for what they are sooner or later.
Besides, Ramadan’s legacy as a proud descendant of the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood is what should be criticized, not any perceived moderation of it. Frankly, by riding on his grandfather’s notorious coattails, an adequate comparison would be any grandson of Hitler doing the same. Shouldn’t such people denounce such an ancestry? Note that Ramadan is not prominent because he has denounced his grandfather; he’s prominent because of his embrace of that lineage.
