Dr Abdul El-Sayed is trying to become the country’s first Muslim Governor, and this raises a question of whether or not being a practicing Muslim should disbar someone from holding high office in the US. Many are wondering if someone who puts Islam at the heart of their motivation can really serve the Constitution which is incompatible with Islamic law.
Dr. El Sayed is actually an example of migrant success in America. He is the son of an Egyptian migrant who has become a doctor and is seeking office. But there’s a problem: he wants Michigan to become a Sanctuary State.
Sanctuary Cities are economic failures and crime hotspots. The fact that a city allows illegal migrants to commit crimes and then stay in the country, only makes legal citizens lives more dangerous and their communities less safe. If the whole state of Michigan becomes a “Sanctuary”, every criminal seeking to avoid deportation will head there, bringing crime and welfare dependency.
Perhaps the question shouldn’t be about Muslims holding office, but about people holding office who promote dangerous policies that will turn their states into criminal cesspits?
I’m still waiting for someone to prove me wrong on the fact that not one Muslim in politics in America is pushing any pro-American agenda points.
Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, a liberal Democrat would like to become the nation’s first Muslim Governor in Michigan, home to the city of Dearborn, with the highest Muslim population outside of the Middle East.
The state of Michigan also made news last year when Hamtramck, a city that was long known for it’s strong Polish immigrant community, elected its first all-Muslim City Council. It’s probably not that far-fetched that the son of Egyptian immigrants living in a state where tens of thousands of Muslim refugees and immigrants come to live would want to see the state of MI become a “Sanctuary State”.
“My faith is really important to me, as it is for many Americans and Michiganders,” El-Sayed said. “But I think we should be asking ourselves rather than how one prays, or what they pray to, we should ask ourselves what [one] prays for and what one hopes for.”
But some residents in the state may not be ready to see a Muslim governor. In the last several years, Michigan has been a HOTBED of anti-American activity, especially in Dearborn. But El-Sayed doesn’t want Michigan residents to be distracted by anti-Muslim rhetoric and violence — and he wants people to know that the principles of Islam are what guide his service.
“I am running because of the values my Islam teaches me — which includes beliefs in equity, the fundamental rights of all people, a belief that we will judge ourselves as a people based on how we treat the most vulnerable,” El-Sayed said. “A belief in being good to others fundamentally, a belief in respect and dignity to one’s neighbors and one’s friends and one’s family.”-Business Insider
Democratic gubernatorial candidate Abdul El-Sayed is starting to propose a progressive platform that includes making Michigan a “sanctuary state,” providing universal preschool and offering publicly funded health insurance to any resident needing coverage.

El-Sayed claims that a Sanctuary State will make Michiganders safer.
As a Michigander, I can assure you that making our state a “Sanctuary State” will not only make it less safe, but it will cause many people to move away to states who have laws against law-breakers.

El-Sayed also made his feelings known on Twitter about a MI lawmaker, Rep. Michele Hoitenga, R-Manton,MI who wants to make Sharia Law illegal in that state of Michigan. El-Sayed attempts to make the comparison of the 10 commandments and the Holy Bible to Sharia Law. What El-Sayed seems to be willfully ignoring, is the fact that the United States is a Judeo-Christian nation.
Everyone needs to realize that the pattern here is always the same, and that we need to stop the progression of the Islamic agenda of domination before it is too late!
