White Convert to Islam VS American Arab Muslim
January 26, 2007
I was reading over the comments, which I don’t usually have the luxury to do, and came across this comment battle in the post for
Black Converts to Islam are a Joke to the Arab Moslems post from last year, and thought you might be interested in checking it out.
Let it be known that Salib doesn’t necessarily agree with any or all of it, just putting it in front of those who are interested in reading it.
Let it also be known that converts can sometimes be tighter-clinging or more fanatical than people who were brought up with this cult. (To prove to others–and themselves–how “righteous” they are.)
Also, people who spent much of their cognizant life (maybe over 14 or something) in a non-Islamic country (like the US) sometimes feel “Ma2to3een men el shagara” (like a branch torn from the tree) and either don’t know the worse aspects of this perverse “religion”, or else sometimes they can even feel that getting closer to Islam is a way of getting closer to their cultural roots. I have even seen Egyptian Protestants raised in America (rather than Egypt) converting to Coptic Orthodoxy so as to feel closer to their heritage that wasn’t stripped away from when the white man came over to convert the little Egyptians.
I guess we always want what we don’t have, eh?

I am a white male myself who converted 2 islam and all my arab friends tell me not 2 practice it poorly like the blacks do…damn i wasnt even expectin that comment but it happened and in ways it is true. Most blacks do not practice it right and still act like animals in public and still wear their stupid fitted hats and listen to music that would never be allowed in a islamic society. Most of them convert because they think “Jesus was a white man who had slaves” well since i had converted 2 islam i found out that muhammed had black slaves and said that they were best used as slaves and were automatically satanic. Strange how most of the arabs I know look down upon blacks and i just happened 2 agree with them. For the ones with jobs and do good and play a decent role in society without acting like animals, i dont mind but for ones who sit on their ass all day and glorify tony montana (scarface) need 2 get the fuck out. For the ones who posted above saying theres no prejudice among arab muslims and black muslims is completely lying to themselves, yea maybe some dont feel that way and i never mentioned that ALL arab muslims feel that wa towards blacks but ive met quite a few dedicated arab muslims(young & old) who would be quick to tell you black is bad. Just read about the Darfur crisis going on rite now as we speak, janjawid is an arab militia backed by Osama Bin Laden to enslave the blacks and kill the useless. And what does Osama Bin Laden do? He follows the Quran. so figure it out. stop bein in denial and just face the fact that racism is just not black/white like you thought. To white people readin this post, realize muslims r not the enemy, just radical islam, there is a difference.. I advise 2 stop any hate towards innocent arabs, indians and anyone else who just wants a better life here plz, they r not the ones trashing up this country, realize who is really doin it and creatin music that may be a threat to our kids and family who glorify it. This is not directed 2 all blacks but 2 a good percentage who just complain about this n that, if u dont like it then jus leave. stop tearin this country apart..

To Jaz or whatever your name is. You sound like the biggest idiot that I’ve ever heard of in my life. I’m arab! Many arabs who are muslim like myself have utmost respect for muslims of african american decent. My father has traveled all across the world including many muslim countries and he told me the best muslims he ever seen in his entire life was muslims of african american decent! Who represents Islam in the US??? African American Muslims! End of Story! I’m proud to be Muslim! I’m arab, but I’m Muslim first. I don’t know what kind of Muslim you are bringing White racism into islam and saying that muslim arabs taught you that African Americans practice false Islam. I don’t believe you! And if any ignorant Muslim Arab told you this, he or she is shaitan! Just like when my fellow Arab Sunni/Shia fight amongst each other! Or kill innocent people. They’re Shaitan! You’re also shaitan! You are preaching to Non Muslims to turn them against Muslims of African American decent. Don’t say that you’re Muslim. You’re are the biggest Kufr!!!! I don’t know what your intentions are with Islam, but you’re not a Muslim! And you want to speak of Osama, he’s not Muslim!!! He’s the biggest Kufr!!!! African American Muslims make me proud to be Muslim!!!
