US Liberalism & Islamic Exceptionalism with Dr Shadi Hamid

As you all know, this podcast is no stranger to dissecting the narrative forwarded by liberals in general and those within our community that self-identify as Muslim liberals. And if you know me you would know that I don't particularly find the modernist narrative appealing nor elegant in their appeals to what I and I think most Muslims see as the ideas of an incoherent worldview that has undermined human societies the world over. With these caveats in mind, this episode we dedicate to a discussion with an American Muslim liberal, Dr Shadi Hamid. I have followed his work for some years and although we part company on a number of issues, as you will hear, I do feel Shadi is a reluctant liberal, open to criticise not only those inconsistencies he witnesses but also he attempts to make sense of American foreign policy in light of his values and I am not sure he is always successful in reaching a satisfactory answer. We discuss American liberalism, the trends towards nativism, exemplified in the near re-election of Donald Trump last year but also how he reconciles his liberal worldview with his Islamic faith, which I know he thinks a lot about. Shadi has written a number of books on the Muslim world, this is where he made his name in American political and academic circles, so we spend time talking about the attitudes of Muslims in the Muslim world towards Islam as well as the often-simplistic way US policy treats the Middle East and Islamic parties.

Dr. Sahar Khamis discussed the latest rising wave of Islamophobia and its implications, especially in the aftermath of the Afghanistan crisis and the return of Taliban, and the recent 20th anniversary of 9/11. The discussion will tackle the questions of why, and how, this new wave of Islamophobia has been on the rise lately, both globally and in the United States; what are the manifestations and implications of this escalating trend; how are different Muslim, and non-Muslim, groups and orgnizations trying to combat it; and the double-edged sword effect of the media in this regard. with her guests, Mr. Shahed Amanullah and Dr. Amin Asfari Shahed Amanullah is Managing Director of Frost Capital and co-founder of Zakatify, a social impact fintech startup. From 2011 to 2014, Shahed served in President Barack Obama's administration as Senior Advisor for Technology at the US Department of State, working under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. He is the founder of Altmuslim, an online magazine with 2.5 million annual unique users, and served as its editor-in-chief for 10 years before its 2011 acquisition. In 1998, he created Zabihah, the world's first and largest Halal restaurant guide, with 10 million annual users and 750,000 app downloads. He serves as an advisor to the Muslim Caucus of America, which works to empower Muslim candidates for public office and educate the American Muslim electorate of their civic responsibilities, and is a founding board member of the Muslim Public Service Network, which since 1993 has graduated hundreds of Muslims interested in public service careers from its Washington, DC summer program. Dr. Amin Asfari is an Associate Professor in the Department of Criminal Justice at Wake Tech College, and a contributing faculty member at Campbell University in the Department of History, Political Science, and Criminal Justice. He is an interdisciplinary researcher whose areas of expertise are in public policy, criminal justice reform, prejudice and race, with an emphasis on Islamophobia. His ongoing scholarship seeks to understand the construction of Muslims as the “other,” and to identify the public policies that foster and legitimize this label. His forthcoming book Elders and Brothers: Jews and Muslims in the White Supremacist Imagination considers the role of conspiracism in mass shootings. He is also working to develop an integrated theoretical model that explains the process of “othering," which draws from various disciplines and methodological approaches to fine-tune our understanding of Islamophobia. His research contributes to the empirical understanding of American Muslims--a historically understudied group.

Upper-middle-class white women have long been heralded as “experts” on feminism. They have presided over multinational feminist organizations and written much of what we consider the feminist canon, espousing sexual liberation and satisfaction, LGBTQ inclusion, and racial solidarity, all while branding the language of the movement itself in whiteness and speaking over Black and Brown women in an effort to uphold privilege and perceived cultural superiority. An American Muslim woman, attorney, and political philosopher, Rafia Zakaria champions a reconstruction of feminism in Against White Feminism, centering women of color in this transformative overview and counter-manifesto to white feminism's global, long-standing affinity with colonial, patriarchal, and white supremacist ideals. _______________________________________________   Produced by Maddie Gobbo, Lance Morgan, & Michael Kowaleski.

According to state health data, Thursday, Sept. 9th, the total of confirmed cases was a record 1,738, only to be broken by Saturday, Sept. 11th's total of 1,821.The previous one-day high of more than 1,700 was set on Dec. 31.To find where you can get vaccinated, visit the Department of Health and Human Resources website.

Capito says as they were scrambling around the office, one of her assistants pointed out the window and she says she saw the smoke from the Pentagon.Capito said she was able to escape to a safe spot and watch it all unfold around her.Capito discusses COVID-19 and Washington protestIn Segment 3, U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) talks about the surge of COVID-19 cases not just in West Virginia but throughout the nation. Capito also gives her thoughts about the fencing set up outside the U.S. Capitol, which is expected to return ahead of the protest in support of the people that were arrested in the last Capitol riot on Jan. 6.“I'm concerned and disheartened by that. Legal and lawful protest is something that is as old as our nation,” said Capito. “The ability to gather around the Capitol should be something that's preserved. But I'm really disappointed we have to have another fence. I think it sends a bad signal to what we feel might happen at a protest like that. Think that's changed the way our law enforcement looks at protecting us and protecting the Capitol.”Reflecting on 9/11 and West Virginia welcoming Afghan refugeesIn Segment 4, Ibtesam “Sue” Barazi, the Vice President of the Islamic Association of West Virginia and the leader of the West Virginia Interfaith Ministry, discusses what changed for American Muslims after 9/11.Barazi says many Muslims became the target for violence, even when they had nothing to do with the attacks. She talks about how she and the other religious leaders in West Virginia have come together to work on many issues, especially after the attacks. “After 9/11 and after I retired, I saw the need to build bridges. Talk to people, let them know who we are. Invite people to the Islamic center, to the mosque. We had many events to let them know we are not your enemies.”At this time, there is an effort to welcome Afghan refugees to West Virginia. Charleston Mayor Amy Goodwin read a proclamation welcoming immigrant families at Charleston City Hall on Friday, Sept. 10.  “This is the time to step up if you are a goodwill individual,” said Bazari. “Afghanis and many immigrants who come to this country are going to do nothing but good deeds and provide services. They're entrepreneurs, good for the community.”

Kashif Shaikh is the Co-Founder and President of Pillars Fund. In 2010, Kashif and a small group of Muslim philanthropists founded Pillars to strategically organize wealth within their communities and support American Muslim civic institutions and leaders building a more just, equitable society. For the next five years, Kashif volunteered his time and resources to grow and lead Pillars. In 2016, he was asked to be Pillars' first full-time executive director and transitioned Pillars from a volunteer-run fund to a fully operational foundation. Under his leadership, Pillars has invested more than $6 million in Muslim community organizations and initiatives to build collective power and transform what is possible for Muslims in the United States. At the heart of Kashif's career in philanthropy is a dedication to promoting racial equity and creating opportunities for Muslims and people of color to tell their stories through art. Prior to launching Pillars, Kashif was a program officer at the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, where he helped manage a portfolio of more than $20 million and helped scale a variety of Chicago nonprofits working at the intersection of racial justice, poverty, and education. He also managed the Foundation's corporate partnerships and helped develop corporate social responsibility strategies for the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Blackhawks, and Chicago Bulls. His career began at the United Way of Metropolitan Chicago, where he developed strategies to engage the organization's largest corporate partners. Kashif's expert insight on Muslims in philanthropy has been cited in The New York Times, Buzzfeed, and Chicago Sun Times, among others. He currently serves on the board of directors of the Peabody Awards, Chicago Humanities Festival, and Mortar, a nonprofit based in his home town of Cincinnati that helps entrepreneurs from historically marginalized communities access resources to start and run successful businesses. He has been named a Philanthropy Forward Fellow by the Aspen Institute Forum for Community Solutions and Neighborhood Funders Group, a New Profit Civic Lab Entrepreneur, and an Ambassadors for Health Equity Fellow. In 2017, Crain's Chicago Business named him to their 40 Under 40 list. Kashif holds a BA from Ohio State University and MA from Northwestern University

Elite white women have branded feminism, promising an apolitical individual empowerment along with sexual liberation and satisfaction, LGBTQ inclusion, and racial solidarity. As Rafia Zakaria expertly argues in Against White Feminism: Notes on Disruption (W. W. Norton, 2021), those promises have been proven empty and white feminists have leant on their racial privilege and sense of cultural superiority. Drawing on her own experiences as an American Muslim woman, as well as an attorney working on behalf of immigrant women, Zakaria champions a reconstruction of feminism that forges true solidarity by bringing Black and brown voices and goals to the fore. Ranging from the savior complex of British feminist imperialists to the condescension of the white feminist-led "development industrial complex" and the conflation of sexual liberation as the "sum total of empowerment," Zakaria presents an eye-opening indictment of how whiteness has contributed to a feminist movement that solely serves the interests of upper middle-class white women.

In 2020 the United States saw a 4% decline in recorded incidents of antisemitism, with this year’s number coming to a total of 2,204 according to the Anti-Defamation League.  That decrease comes following an increase that occurred in 2019, making for a trend line that leaves uncertainty as to how this year will turn out. The L.A. Police Department is investigating a Tuesday night assault on a party of Jewish men dining in Beverly Grove by a pro-Palestinian group earlier this week as a possible hate crime. Although this incident has so far not been part of a larger trend, it has left local Jewish and Muslim communities worried that the current geopolitical problems occurring in the Gaza Strip may lead to an increase in hate incidents against both communities. Today on AirTalk, we focus on anxiety over local hate incidents, if it holds back any inner-faith dialogue between the two communities, and how locals are reckoning with the 227 deaths that have occurred in Gaza.

In Fear In Our Hearts: What Islamophobia Tells Us about America (NYU Press, 2021), Caleb Iyer Elfenbein, Associate Professor at Grinnell College, examines Islamophobia in the United States, positing that rather than simply being an outcome of the 9/11 attacks, anti-Muslim activity grows out of a fear of difference that has always characterized US public life. Elfenbein examines the effects of this fear on American Muslims, as well as describing how it works to shape and distort American society. Drawing on over 1,800 news reports documenting anti-Muslim activity, Elfenbein pinpoints trends, draws connections to the broader histories of immigration, identity, belonging, and citizenship in the US, and examines how Muslim communities have responded. In our conversation we discuss the Mapping Islamophobia digital humanities project, the role of storytelling in synthesizing a large amounts of data, anti-Muslim political rhetoric and activity, the effects of “public hate,” Muslim participation in public life, the role of legislation, hate crimes, Muslim public outreach and engagement, and Muslim politicians.
