| Jacinda Ardern Should Win King Faisal International Prize For Services To Islam
| Friday, March 29, 2019
Jihad Watch : She hasn’t won it quite yet. And that’s not the only prize she is up
for. Little more than a week after the attack in New Zealand, nearly
30,000 people had signed online petitions
calling for New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern to be awarded the
Nobel Peace Prize for her response to the Christchurch terror attack.
So she surely must be on the short list, too, for the King Faisal
International Prize For Services To Islam. “Ms. Ardern has received widespread acclaim for the compassion she
has shown to the victims and their families.”
That “compassion” has
included her donning of the hijab during every public appearance for at
least a week after the Christchurch attack, as she met first with
survivors, then with other Muslims when she visited Islamic centers in
Christchurch and Wellington, made a televised address to the nation
expressing what would become her trademark “We Are One” sentiment, and
announced that the government would not only pay for all the funerals,
but provide financial assistance to the families of the victims.
nation mourned with her, or at least all of those sorrowful faces who
were caught on camera. She received praise from Muslims worldwide for
her performance. Footage of her wearing the hijab, consoling Muslim
women, and reciting one of Muhammad’s hadith, went worldwide.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs sent clips of Ardern visiting mosques in a hijab and clips of her speeches translated into Arabic and Turkish to Islamic countries, as a way to head off any possible reprisal attacks from Muslims who might blame New Zealand, and not a lone lunatic, for the attack. Apparently, in the view of the New Zealand government, Muslims are splendid, peace-loving people — “We Are One” — but on the other hand, you never know…
In Turkey, that outreach apparently didn’t work. Al Jazeera reported that crowds gathered in Istanbul mosques with signs reading “Crusader Savagery in New Zealand.”Tens of thousands of people paid their respects around the country with some forming human chains in front of mosques. Others said silent prayers at schools, cafes, and even offices. It has made a deep impression.
According to Muslim faith, the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said:
“The believers in their mutual kindness, compassion, and sympathy are just like one body. When any part of the body suffers, the whole body feels pain,” Ardern said, reciting the hadith. Then she ended: “New Zealand Mourns With You. We Are One.”
Except that the hadith she recited means exactly the opposite of what Jacinda Ardern took it to mean. It has nothing to do with all mankind. It does not apply to the Infidels.
