In another clash of values between American Muslims and Islamists, an American Muslim scholar compared atheists to rapists. New Jersey born and raised Dr. Shadee Elmasry makes a shocking tweet comparing “those who reject Allah” with rapists.

The story was broken by a Clarion Project reader from Egypt. More and more Muslims in the Middle East, unburdened by threats of Islamophobia, are speaking out against Islamist personalities such as Dr. Shadee Elmasry.
Elmasry completed a Masters in comparative religion from George Washington University, followed by a PhD from the University of London. He also founded the Safina Society, an online Islamic school. He’s authored articles for Yaqeen Institute on LGBT issues with Georgetown professor Jonathan A.C. Brown. In the past Professor Brown has publicly condoned rape and slavery under sharia.

In the U.S., Elmasry suggests a covert culture agenda to implement the same barbaric sharia rule:
Sharia forced down ppl’s throats is very dangerous. Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt for example should have went grass roots. Get into education, even cinema and entertainment, journalism, etc and convince people. Make them love it. If you can’t make them love it, you cant rule by it

It’s deeply alarming that Islamist scholars continue to saturate American academia and are branching out into creating new educational watering holes that are undoubtedly influenced by their narrow interpretations of faith and tolerance.
