The mainstream media, like the Democratic Party, never let a tragedy go to waste. While victims of Hurricane Harvey struggle with the loss of life and property, the mainstream media has been hard at work pushing the false narrative that mosques in the surrounding areas of Houston are sheltering non-Muslim survivors. It seems the mission of the mainstream media is to paint Muslims as the heroes in all this rather than giving credit to the people of all races and religions coming together to help one another. People from as far as Kentucky, Florida, and Georgia have traveled at their own expense to help with the rescue effort.
To clarify what the mainstream media is lying about, it is not Houston mosques that are taking in hurricane Harvey survivors, rather these are Houston Islamic Centers which are not necessarily used for religious purposes. As it turns out, non-Muslims are not allowed in mosques. The only exception would be if an Imam gave permission so the non-Muslims could see how Muslims pray or for other special circumstances deemed appropriate by the Imam.
Several mainstream media news sources have portrayed Houston mosques taking in large amounts of hurricane Harvey survivors. Conversely, the truth is that only 35 survivors were at the Champions Mosque, commonly referred to as the Masjid al-Salam Mosque. Of this 35, only 14 remained in the mosque as of the 1st of September. Brand Lane Muslim Center, which is located in Stafford, Texas, claims they are housing approximately 90 people, however, this figure has not been confirmed. There are about 200,000 Muslims in the Houston metro area, and the mainstream media is reporting that they helped 125 survivors.
The mainstream media realized they were losing out with their anti-conservative, white guilt agenda when a black lady snapped at a CNN host for shoving a microphone in her face after she had just been rescued and dropped off at a shelter. The tragic events in Houston have made people realize that the mainstream media is full of lies and deceit and that they are not interested in reporting the truth. Americans of all races have come together to help one another because there is a need. This totally destroys the divisive strategy which the mainstream media and the left constantly push. The people in charge of the shelters realized that the left wing media was exploiting Hurricane Harvey survivors, so they banned them from coming into the shelters. Katie Jones from The Geller Report states, “Many shelters said they would not be letting any more news stations in because evacuees needed privacy. Then, suddenly, mid-day Wednesday CNN had one of the first front-page headlines that “mosques were opening their doors to evacuees.” Within a few hours USA Today, NPR, ABC News, and the other standard leftist media sites that masquerade as news all followed suit.”
A more likely motive for the mainstream media wanting to push the hero Muslim stories could be that they are participating in something called Taqiyya. Taqiyya basically means that Muslims pretend to be nice so they can embed themselves in a society under the guise of being a good citizen.
Further dispelling the myth of non-Muslims being sheltered in a Mosque is an explanation given by Sheikh Muhammad Salih Al-Munjjid. He states, “It is permissible if it serves the interests of shariah or meets a valid need, such as a person hearing something that may invite him to enter Islam, or because he needs to drink water in the mosque, or the like. This is because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) tied up (his prisoner) Thamaamah ibn Athaal al-Hanafi in the mosque before he became Muslim, and the delegations of Thaqeef and the Christians of Najraan stayed in the mosque before they became Muslim. There were many benefits offered by doing this: they could hear the speeches and sermons of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), see people praying and reciting Qur’an, and other benefits that are gained by those who visit the mosque. If some kuffaar ask to enter the mosque so that they can see how Muslims pray, so long as they have nothing with them that could make the mosque dirty, and there are no women among them who are dressed in a provocative fashion, or any other reason not to let them in, then there is nothing wrong with allowing them to enter and sit behind the Muslims so they can see how they pray. If we fear that there is someone who may rebuke them (for not praying etc.) without realizing that they are not Muslim, we should point this out to them.” (From Fatwa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah, 6/276). So basically, one of the only ways a non-Muslim can come into a Mosque, which is at the discretion of the Imam, is to spread Sharia or to convert the non-Muslim. These are important facts that the mainstream media has left absent in their reporting.
What all this fake news reveals is that the mainstream media is complicit in collaborating with Muslim organizations to spread a false narrative with the sole purpose to institute Sharia. Thankfully, a large number of Americans are not drinking the Kool-Aide and recognize the fact that the mainstream media is not interested in the truth.
