How Many Bombs Does a Non-Muslim Need to Set Off Before Being Called a Terrorist? – my New Article

How Many Bombs Does a Non-Muslim Need to Set Off Before Being Called a Terrorist? I wanted to share my new article for about the glaring double standard by both Trump and the media over not calling the Austin bomber a terrorist. This is a man who waged a two week campaign of terror that left two dead and injured five. And listeners to my SiriusXM radio show from Austin shared how they had been terrorized by this bomber for two weeks. If the bomber had been Muslim, there’s zero doubt this would be called a terrorist and Trump would’ve have tried to use it to further his political agenda. But this isn’t just about double standards- it’s about keeping Americans safe. Hope you find the article of interest. Thanks

Was the Parkland, Fla shooting a white supremacist terrorist attack? my new Article

Posted on

We learned on Tuesday that the gunman who killed 17 people on Feb 14 had etched swastikas into his gun magazines. And last week the media reported the gunman had spewed anti-black, anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant and anti-Semitic comments online and in person. Add to that 5 of the people he killed were Jewish and he shot and killed two students in a Holocaust studies class. But still politicians and many in the media only talk about his mental issues. Why are they so hesitant to talk terrorism given the facts? This makes us less safe as a nation especially given documented spike in white supremacist terrorism in 2017.

My appearance on CNN discussing the immigration story of my Palestinian father

Posted on

I wanted to share my appearance on CNN about my Palestinian father’s immigration story and how it’s truly the American story. Trump wants to end what he calls “chain migration” which is simply the idea that when an immigrant moves to America, they later bring their family to America to also share in the American Dream. In the segment CNN aired photos of my Palestinian family including one of my late father holding me as a baby. Trump simply doesn’t believe in the American story – he instead is motivated by keeping America white. Hope u check out the clip HERE.

“Chain migration” and my Palestinian immigrant father- my Daily Beast article

Posted on

 I wanted to share the story of my Palestinian immigrant father who came to America in 1957. He was the first in his family to visit the U.S., let alone live here. And like countless immigrants before and after him, after he got settled in his new world he brought over relatives.  Now 60 years later there are Obeidallahs in various states who are lawyers, pharmacists, doctors, small business owners and the like all contributing to America. I hope you will check out my Daily Beast article about my late father’s journey to America and it undermines Trump’s claim that family unification of immigrants must be stopped.

 
 
 

Trump’s new coin remakes US in his own gaudy image – my new CNN article

Posted on

Moammar Gadhafi had his gold gun. Saddam Hussein boasted a gold toilet-paper dispenser. Now Trump has designed his very own gold presidential coin. Trump’s name appears on the coin more than the words United States of America. And as opposed to past Presidents, Trump removed the Seal of the United States from his presidential coin and instead it says “Make American Great Again.” Trump is truly a 3rd world dictator.
