“Why are leftists siding with radical Islamic regimes? Reason: they are a natural alliance”
My Story: The Making of an Anti-Islamist Muslim with M. Zuhdi Jasser
M. Zuhdi Jasser speaks with Mark Levin on Life Liberty & Levin

You may have heard that on Thursday, June 12, 2021, around 3:45PM, three shining beacons in our lives and our world, Courtney Lonergan, and her two oldest children Ali and Almira were dimmed, to only be brightened, more than ever, in Heaven above.

This has all been so unspeakably hard for all of us to fathom and understand for our family, at home, our activist family in our passion at the American Islamic Forum for Democracy and our family globally at the Muslim Reform Movement. Courtney literally facilitated, led, and made productive every important meeting we had for almost 15 years. She also served selflessly on our Board of Directors at AIFD for the last five years. I know that forever, I will still continue to try, out of habit to pick up the phone and dial her Alaska area code or DM her (twitter @AlaskanMuslim) in order to ask her for advice in human relations, goal setting, life, and so much else. She had a treasured wisdom and righteousness.

Courtney, Ali and Almira are survived by Aracelli (14) who was at home when the horrific accident happened Thursday afternoon. Aracelli will especially need all of our prayers and support. Everyone who knew them loved them deeply. Ali shared his story with Pat McMahon as the Golden Rule Student of the Month. You can see it here: https://www.aztv.com/…/novembers-golden-rule-student…

A clip from a recent global Muslim Reform Movement webinar of ours is also below. Here’s a link literally weeks ago to our full discussion in one of our most recent discussions with Courtney and Asra Nomani from April where we talked about “Angels on Earth: Why Muslims should embrace Dogs as Pets”. See: https://youtu.be/ZKk3o-Yrajw

How will we continue do all this without her? We must. For. Her. Her family. Her faith. For God.

Every one of us at the Muslim Reform Movement (MRM) will testify to how much she loved her family, humanity and her faith of Islam. She taught us every day how to be loving, faithful, unbiased, fair, genuine, and humane. Each and every day as we continue to live by her example in humanity and her spirit, she and her children will look down on us in their infinite smiles.

AIFD has set up a dedicated Memorial Fund in Courtney’s family name. If you’d like to contribute any amount, you can donate at this link https://aifdemocracy.org/take-action/donate/ and please email us at info@aifdemocracy.org to confirm and/or just note in the submission note that funds are intended for the:

**Courtney Lonergan Memorial Fund

We will ensure that 100% of that donation is provided to her surviving daughter Aracelli for her support.

We will do our best to keep you apprised of any further information. There will be a celebration of life planned with many of her communities in the coming weeks.

Ep 115 | Islamists Unhinged in the West


Don’t miss this week’s July 4th Independence Day weekend episode. Join Dr. Jasser as he fills you in on how London has become a hub in the West for Hamas supporters and their organizations.

Also Zuhdi takes a look at the newest western Muslim Brotherhood organization entry the Mohammed Morsi Foundation. And more corruption, misogyny, and lawfare from the so-called “leading American Muslim civil rights organization”- CAIR.

Dr. Jasser joined David Foster on his program “Roundtable” on TRT World UK. Dr. Jasser debated Farid Hafez of the Bridge Initiative, Austria and Massoud Shadjareh of the Islamic Human Rights Commission in the UK.

Not only did we find this debate fascinating in the context of what’s happening in Austria and France but also that it happened on TRT World– Turskish state television, an Islamist government run press agency.

While there is a lot more to discuss, this start is a must watch” debate that runs to the core of our mission at AIFD. Threading the needle of freedom, protecting Western values, defeating Islamism, while maintaining our personal faith of Islam and worship of God.

The love for America
and the faith of Islam is why we seek change.

AIFD directly confronts the ideas of political Islam and openly counters the common belief that the Muslim faith is rooted to the concept of the Islamic State (Islamism – the belief that Islam should guide social and political as well as personal life). We stand firmly for universal human rights – including gender equality, freedom of conscience, and freedom of speech and expression.

Our mission is to advocate for the preservation of the founding principles of the U.S. Constitution, liberty and freedom, through the separation of mosque and state.

“Believers! Conduct yourselves with justice, and bear true witness before God; even if it be against yourselves, your parents, or your kin.”

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا كُونُوا قَوَّامِينَ بِالْقِسْطِ شُهَدَاءَ لِلَّهِ وَلَوْ عَلَىٰ أَنفُسِكُمْ أَوِ الْوَالِدَيْنِ وَالْأَقْرَبِينَ إِن يَكُنْ غَنِيًّا أَوْ فَقِيرًا فَاللَّهُ أَوْلَىٰ بِهِمَا فَلَا تَتَّبِعُوا الْهَوَىٰ أَن تَعْدِلُوا وَإِن تَلْوُوا أَوْ تُعْرِضُوا فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ خَبِيرً
