Regina Mustafa says she hopes to be a voice for all of Rochester, but accuses critics of sharia of “fearmongering and hate.” In the second article below, she harshly criticizes Phillip Parish for saying that Islam is the “antithesis of the Constitution.” But it is. Islam means slavery and the U.S. Constitution is a document of freedom. Regina Mustafa is simply not being honest in contradicting this. If there were any enemedia reporters worthy of the name, they would challenge her on sharia oppression of women and non-Muslims, as well as its Jew-hatred and calls for violence. But no one will do that. If she is elected mayor of Rochester, Minnesota, the citizens of Rochester who voted for her will get what they deserve.

“Mustafa says she’ll run for mayor of Rochester,” by Randy Petersen, Post Bulletin, February 5, 2018:

Regina Mustafa says she hopes to be a voice for all of Rochester.

The founder of Community Interfaith Dialogue on Islam announced this morning that she is a candidate for Rochester mayor.

“I decided the mayoral race is the best fit for me,” she said. “I’ve had a vested interest in city government for awhile.”

In December, Mustafa said she planned to seek local political office but had not decided which position to pursue.

Earlier last year, she began a campaign for the 1st Congressional District after Rep. Tim Walz announced plans to run for Minnesota governor, but she suspended that campaign in October.

However, Mustafa said that didn’t end her desire to give back to her community.

“This city has given me so much, and I look forward to serving as Rochester’s next mayor and working to create a city that is welcoming and inclusive for all,” she said. “Affordable housing, a livable wage, and public transit will be top priorities.”

Mustafa moved to southern Minnesota 12 years ago from Philadelphia. She and her husband are raising two children, and she is pursuing a masters degree in Human Services from Winona State University — Rochester….

“Candidate under fire for calling Islam ‘antithesis of Constitution,’” by Heather J. Carlson, PostBulletin, January 19, 2018:

A long-shot Republican gubernatorial candidate is getting national attention for writing that he does not consider Islam a faith and that it is “the antithesis of the Constitution.”

Phillip Parrish, of Kenyon, wrote the comments in an email to Community Interfaith Dialogue on Islam founder Regina Mustafa. Mustafa, of Rochester, sent Parrish an email inviting him to sit down with her after learning he had recently attended a meeting featuring Usama Dakdok, an outspoken critic of Islam.

“I do not object to you attending his presentation, but wanted to know if you would like to speak to a Muslim about Islam. Since you have attended this talk about my faith, I figured you would also like to hear from a person who actually practices Islam,” wrote Mustafa, a former DFL candidate for the 1st Congressional District seat.

Parrish responded by saying he would be willing to meet but that “I separate Islam from the word faith because faith takes belief and Islam requires only submission.” He added that he would ask her to publicly denounce Sharia law and declare that “Islam, Sharia and the Quran are the antithesis of the U.S. Constitution.”

Mustafa posted the email exchanges on her Facebook page. Since then, Parrish’s response has drawn sharp criticism from civil rights organizations. The Southern Poverty Law Center wrote about Parrish’s comments on its “Hatewatch” blog. Muslim Advocates, a nonprofit based in Oakland, Calif., blasted Parrish’s remarks.

“Anti-Muslim bigotry like this emboldens those who would discriminate or commit acts of violence against Muslims. We’ve seen hate crimes, violence, and bigotry skyrocket as politicians have increased their attacks on Islam and Muslims,” said Muslim Advocates Policy Director Scott Simpson.

Mustafa has called on Parrish to drop out of the Republican gubernatorial race. In a press release, Parrish pushed back, saying he has no intention of leaving the race. In an interview, Parrish accused Mustafa of making a “disingenuous request” to meet with him in order to advance her own propaganda.

What is his response to being called anti-Muslim?

“I see myself as a person attempting to expose those who are attempting to set up rules and laws and regulations contrary to the U.S. Constitution,” Parrish said….

“It’s causing harm to people. Thousands of analysts like myself, thousands of law enforcement specialists have been trying to tell leadership this same message for over 20 years. And no one seems to want to listen or they live in some kind of utopic world of no, people really don’t think like that. They don’t really mean to cut somebody’s hand off because they stole something. They don’t really mean to put someone to death because they defiled themselves with an unclean woman. They don’t really mean to rape little boys on Thursday night because the imam gave them permission to do that,” Parrish said.

Mustafa rejected the idea that her invitation was in any way insincere. She said she is deeply disturbed by Parrish’s comments, saying they demonstrate a lack of understanding about Islam. She said Muslims in America have demonstrated a respect for both the U.S. Constitution and their religion and his comments are unfair to the Muslim men and women who have served in the U.S. armed forces.

“If you don’t think (Islam) is a faith, then my religious freedoms to you are negotiable and are at risk and I find that very alarming, and if he is saying that to his supporters, it’s the epitome of fear mongering and hate,” Mustafa said….

Rochester DFL Rep. Tina Liebling, a candidate for governor, called on Republican candidates to “denounce Mr. Parrish’s ignorant, islamophobic statement and pledge to encourage peace and understanding among Minnesotans regardless of race, religion, or national origin.”

ALERT ALERT

Congressman Calls Trump ‘Psychopath’
For Saying Out Loud What Rational-Minded Americans
Are Thinking About FBI

Democrats have become so unhinged over their hatred for President Donald Trump that they think nothing of calling the commander in chief a “psychopath.”

Case in point, U.S. Rep. Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz., who took great exception to Trump saying out loud what most rational minded Americans are already thinking when it comes to the FBI.

The president took to Twitter on Saturday to state the obvious, that it’s unacceptable that the FBI failed to follow up on a credible tip about the Parkland, Fla., high school gunman who killed 17 people, and that the bureau has been too distracted in “trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign.”

“Very sad that the FBI missed all of the many signals sent out by the Florida school shooter. This is not acceptable. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign – there is no collusion. Get back to the basics and make us all proud!,” Trump tweeted. 
Donald J. Trump Very sad that the FBI missed all of the many signals sent out by the Florida school shooter. This is not acceptable. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign - there is no collusion. Get back to the basics and make us all proud! 

 The FBI released a statement acknowledging that protocols were not followed when the tip that may have saved 17 lives was recieved.

“On January 5, 2018, a person close to Nikolas Cruz contacted the FBI’s Public Access Line (PAL) tipline to report concerns about him,” the bureau said in a statement. “The caller provided information about Cruz’s gun ownership, desire to kill people, erratic behavior, and disturbing social media posts, as well as the potential of him conducting a school shooting.”

As for the “signals” the president referenced, the killer could not have screamed his intentions any louder than he did in the weeks leading up to last week’s shooting.

But this proved to be inconsequential to Congressman Gallego, an Iraq War veteran who responded to the president’s post by declaring “America will regret the day you were ever born.”

“You are such a psychopath that you have to make even the death of 17 children about you. America will regret the day you were ever born,” he tweeted. 

You are such a psychopath that you have to make even the death of 17 children about you. America will regret the day you were ever born.

Gallego, who announced in 2016 he was divorcing his wife while she was pregnant with their first child, criticized Trump is a second tweet for commenting on a news conference held by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who said that no Americans had knowledge of the efforts of 13 Russian nationals indicted last week for allegedly meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

The lawmaker noted that “children are being buried today.”

Of course, that didn’t stop the hypocrite from tweeting his support for pro-abortion Democratic women running for office on the same day “children are being buried.”
