I am thrilled to announce that human rights activist and freedom fighter Nonie Darwish, an ex-Muslim who grew up in Gaza and experienced jihad and Jew-hatred firsthand and repudiated both, has become our first AFDI fellow. In that capacity, Nonie, author of the must-read books Now They Call Me Infidel and Cruel and Usual Punishment will be contributing regular articles here. I am pleased to be able to feature her unique and important perspectives here at Atlas. I'm also very happy to announce that Nonie's groundbreaking and courageous organization, Former Muslims United, will now continue its work as part of the AFDI freedom network.
Obama’s Conduct Unbecoming
By Nonie Darwish, EXCLUSIVE TO AFDI
Obama, as the leader of the free world, had the perfect opportunity to speak again to the Muslim world from Antalya, Turkey, during the G-20 summit. But this time, instead of appeasing, he could have talked business to a Muslim world entrenched in self-deception, self-pity, blame, misery, hatred and terror. He could have finally done what many needed him to do; to demand from Islamic religious and political leadership to change course to end the glorification of the jihad culture, hate education and take responsibility for creating a culture of terror. He could have demanded an end to the paranoia against the West and the centuries long breeding of millions of Muslim young men believing that honor, glory and love of country means dying for the sake of Allah in martyrdom operations against perceived enemies of Islam.
