The conservative Heritage Foundation assembled a panel of speakers last night who were supposed to talk about the terrorist attack in Benghazi in 2012.
However, according to The Washington Post, the panel quickly started floating conspiracy theories from the Muslim Brotherhood infiltrating the U.S. government to Obama and Hillary Clinton trying to impose Sharia laws in the U.S.
Later, during a question and answer session with the audience, an American University student named Saba Ahmed asked the panel about their stereotyping Muslims, noted MediaMatters.org (video below).
"We portray Islam and all Muslims as bad, but there’s 1.8 billion followers of Islam," stated Ahmed. "We have 8 million-plus Muslim Americans in this country and I don’t see them represented here, but my question is how can we fight an ideological war with weapons?"
"How can we end this war?" asked Ahmed. "The Jihadist's ideology that you talk about, it's an ideology, how can you ever win this thing if you don't address it ideologically?"
In response, Brigitte Gabriel, head of ACT! for America, slammed Ahmed for not asking a question about Benghazi, but instead "making a point about peaceful moderate Muslims."
Gabriel announced there were “180 million to 300 million” Muslims in the world who are “dedicated to the destruction of Western civilization.”
Gabriel added, “Most Germans were peaceful, yet the Nazis drove the agenda and as a result, 6 million died.”
Gabriel also told Ahmed, “It is time that we throw political correctness in the garbage where it belongs.”
The audience cheered several times for Gabriel.
Conservative radio host Chris Plante then asked Ahmed, “Can you tell me who the head of the Muslim peace movement is?”
“I guess it’s me right now,” replied Ahmed.
