In his speech about house Negroes and field Negroes, Malcolm X told us that among the characteristics of house Negroes were that they 1) loved the slavemaster more than the master loved himself, and 2) were used by the master to pursue any slaves who may consider fleeing. This insight may help explain why the AIFD’s Zuhdi Jasser adamantly opposes Pfc. Nader Abdo’s conscientious objector request, as reported by Fox News:
“‘Muslims serve with distinction throughout the United States Military and AIFD sees Abdo’s traitorous public assertions as a slap in the face to all American Muslims especially those Muslims who fight in our armed forces for the liberty and freedom guaranteed by the American Constitution,’ the group said in a statement it issued on Friday.”
Of course, Fox describes the AIFD as a neutral “Islamic group” ignoring its collaboration with imperialism and Zionism. If it’s any indication of his politics, Jasser is one of very few Muslims that anti-Islamic, pro-Zionist, self-described ex-terrorist Walid Shoebat approves of.
It’s unfortunate that Abdo put himself in this unenviable position in the first place. As we’ve written before, those who participate in imperialist wars against innocent populations, expose themselves to being treated as a lemon.
Nevertheless, we look forward to CAIR and ADC’s defense of Abdo’s right to conscientious objection.
