Muslim woman gives leftist actress Susan Sarandon a powerful 'taste' of reality for weaponizing Muslims at anti-Israel rally

An American Muslim went viral on Monday over her response to leftist activist Susan Sarandon.

Last Friday, Sarandon joined pro-Palestinian protesters at a demonstration in New York City. She was captured chanting, "from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free," a Hamas rallying cry that celebrates the extermination of Israel.

Additionally, Sarandon appeared to celebrate the rise of anti-Semitism in America while minimizing the Muslim experience by regurgitating the narrative that America is not a safe place for Muslims, the New York Post noted.

"There are a lot of people that are afraid, that are afraid of being Jewish at this time, and are getting a taste of what it feels like to be a Muslim in this country," the actress told her fellow protesters.

But according to Asra Nomani — an influential American female Muslim and former journalist — Sarandon could not be more wrong.

"Let me give you 'a taste' of what it 'feels like' to be a Muslim in America," Nomani told Sarandon in response.

First, Nomani began with her dad, who earned a PhD from Rutgers University and eventually was awarded a full professorship at West Virginia University. "That’s what it means to be Muslim in America. You get your full rights," Nomani said.

Second, she turned to her mother. "Being Muslim in America meant she got to live FREE with the wind in her hair," Nomani explained. Being a Muslim in America also meant Nomani's mother could start a business and achieve financial independence, something Muslim women in the Muslim-majority world rarely experience.

For Nomani personally, being an American Muslim meant she could travel without a male chaperone, a rarity in countries where Shariah law is enforced.

"I'm going to fast forward because this is just a 'taste' of what it means to be Muslim in America. In 2002, I fled Pakistan with a souvenir that could have gotten me imprisoned or killed: a baby growing inside of me, a wedding ring not upon my hand. Sharia law makes sex out of marriage a crime in Muslim countries like Pakistan. My body? The mullah's tyranny," Nomani explained. "And even dare to be atheist like [Yasmine Mohammed]? It’s also a crime punishable by death — in Muslim countries but not in America!"

America, according to Nomani, is a safe haven for Muslims, where they get to "enjoy equal rights as Muslim AmeriCANs, not AmeriCANTs."

"This is a 'taste' of life for a Muslim family in America," Nomani said. "Please don’t minimize the experience of Jewish Americans by sanitizing the hell that it is for Muslims living in Muslim countries and vilifying America for the life — and freedoms — she offers Muslims like my family. Go, live like a Muslim woman in a Muslim country. You will come back to America and kiss the land beneath your feet."

In other news, United Talent Agency, one of the premier talent agencies in Hollywood, has reportedly dumped Sarandon as a client over her anti-Jewish remarks.
