Brigitte Gabriel turns the table on Political Correctness

Although the only focus of Monday's Heritage event was getting to the bottom of the Benghazi attack and holding those responsible accountable for their actions (or lack of action), my panel was asked a rather unusual question by a woman in the audience, Saba 'Queen' Ahmed -- a woman portraying herself as a young Muslim student concerned about the discrimination of Muslims.

Ms. Ahmed has been described by many in the media as a "young Muslim law student." However as is so often the case, there is just a little more to the story.

The additional information we found about Ms. Ahmed begins to bring into more focus the possible real reason for her "question" at Monday's event -- and a possible explanation about why she attended the discussion and left immediately after her question and our exchange:

  • She is CEO/President of Saba Ahmed, LLC a Washington, DC, lobbying firm.
  • She is the friend of the family of Mohamed Osman Mohamud, the Somali-American accused of attempting to bomb a Portland Christmas tree lighting ceremony in 2010.
  • She is a former candidate for U.S. Congress.
  • She has been active in Democratic politics as well as with the radical "Occupy" movement.
  • She was an assistant of former Oregon Governor Ted Kulongoski and also for U.S. Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR).
  • She was arrested for a "stalking incident" in Florida.

I am glad that I had the opportunity to address Ms. Ahmed's comments directly and respectfully -- even though they had nothing to do with the issue of the event. It was an important educational moment.

I stand by how I closed my remarks on Monday:

We have so much at stake to remain silent!

I have received letters and e-mails from all over the country in support of my response to Ms. Ahmed. I am humbled by, and appreciative of, this support and encouragement. And I want you to know that I intend to continue standing up to individuals like this who seek only to misrepresent the truth and who use the liberal media to spread falsehoods about the Islamist threat that surrounds us.

They must be called out and I intend to continue doing just that. But I am also committed to bringing a top notch PR firm to aggressively and successfully get our collective voice out. The Islamist lobby and CAIR are already achieving this through their own powerful PR firms. Why can't we? Are they more committed to their cause than we love our country? Absolutely not. I know I am speaking to every single person reading this.

They raise money in gold coins, we raise money in pennies and have to depend on the generosity of people like you -- patriotic Americans who love this country.
