Take the Gaza Challenge Quiz!

Yesterday, in preparation for attending a Hamas-front-organized “Free Gaza” protest, I composed a list of 24 question to potentially ask attendees about Gaza.

You may or may not be surprised to learn that when asked, not one single person at the protest (besides myself) had been to Gaza, and not one even regularly speaks with Gazans who live in Gaza. This includes the Diaspora Palestinians, who were a significant percentage of the protest.

Well, needless to say, after hundreds of death threats, in Arabic and English, and being called homophobic and antisemitic slurs in Arabic, for holding a sign that merely said “Free Gaza From Hamas” (written in Palestinian flag colors, no less). Arabs were told, in Arabic, that they were not religiously permitted to speak with a Jew. Several who tried were told that they were violating the commands of Allah if they so much as engaged in conversation with me.

“How can we have peace if you won’t allow Arabs to even speak peacefully with even one Jew, when you outnumber me all of these hundreds to one?” I asked.

Their answer was to physically pull any Arabs who wanted to discuss with me, away from me. Anyone who came up to threatened me with murder, or challenging me to fight. I accepted, but then the challengers all strangely backed off, once I invited them to do so like civilized men, in the ring, at my martial arts school, rather than in a park with dozens of police officers around, who would simply break it up and arrest us both.

Fighting a fair and regulated, civilized fight, did not seem to interest them. I wonder if anyone else can draw the same analogy as me, to the similarities with Hamas and other Neo-Salafi Terror Cults operating in and out of Gaza?

Look for a full write up on all of the significant encounters at that protest in an article to follow.

About the Author
Dr. Micah Naziri was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. The son of a multitude of peoples, Micah has Ashkenazi Jewish, German, Native American and Melungeon Sefardic background. Micah has often said he has “one foot in the masjid and the other in shul.” Spiritually, Micah considers his understanding of Judaism to be “Judeo-Sufi,” or “Istislam” as described by Rabbeinu Bachya ibn Paqudah, in his Medieval Judeo-Arabic work “Guide to the Duties of the Hearts” (Al-Hidayat ila Fara`id al-Qulub), which quoted Muhammad and his son-in-law `Ali profusely – reference each as being “a great chasid” – while fully embracing the Torah as the framework of religious practice for the Jewish people. Dr. Naziri is the founder of the Martial Sufi Tariqah alternatively known as the Taliyah al-Mahdi (2001) and the Jamat al-Fitrah (2005), as well as Hashlamah Project Foundation (2012), and the White Rose Society “reboot” (2016). As the founder of the Hashlamah Project Foundation, Micah uses his education in Near Eastern Languages, Religions and historical models of building bridges between Jewish and Muslim communities, to help reconcile and unite Jews and Palestinian Muslims. He is a prolific author who has penned numerous academic articles, donating 100% of the proceeds to charities working towards social justice. He has also authored a science fiction novel fused with history and politics. His Master’s thesis on the religious milieu of Judaism in Muhammad’s life time, in Arabia, has been published by New Dawn Publications and is available on Amazon, with all proceeds similarly going to charity work. He has served as an editor for written works on Martial Arts and Eastern Medicine, transcribing and creating numerous titles for some of his teachers. He has himself authored several martial treatises using the pen name Seng, Hern-Heng – his Taoist lineage name given to him in 2006 by Huang, Chien-Liang. On that front, he is currently working on a new Taoist translation of the Tao Te Ching (Daodejing) based on the original Mawangdui manuscripts. Micah became well-known for activism confronting an anti-Muslim protester peacefully and reasoning with her outside of a Dublin, Ohio mosque. After nearly 45 minutes of debate and reconciliation, the woman embraced a Muslimah woman from the mosque, and went into the mosque with her and Micah for bagels, coffee and a tour of the house of worship. When she left, the Muslims there gave her a gift bag. Micah became somewhat infamous – loved by some, hated by others – not only for several high-profile, viral protests, but also for teaching free self-defense classes available to all interested parties from historically oppressed communities. Law enforcement, however, have without question been the most hostile to Naziri, as he became a regular protester against police brutality and murder of unarmed African-Americans. Micah has been equally as virally-known as an avowed anti-rape activist, who confronted the Stanford Rapist, Brock Turner at his home in Sugarcreek Township, Ohio, after he was released from his mere three-month jail sentence for raping an unconscious woman. Today, Micah continues activism in the areas surrounding Yellow Springs, and abroad, focusing on weekly protests and vigils supporting families of innocent, unarmed African-American youths, gunned down by local police or vigilante citizens attempting to hide behind gun culture and the Second Amendment, such as in the recent case of Victor Santana – who was recently arrested, charged with murder, and convicted after months of pressure put on Montgomery County prosecutor Matt Heck by protests Micah organized in conjunction with Donald Dominique of the New Black Panther Party. Micah is currently coordinating expanded work with international Hashlamah Project chapters and the Jam`at Al-Fitrah, the name used in the Palestinian Territories for the Sufi Martial Tariqah known as the Taliyah al-Mahdi. He is seeking grant-writing partnerships to grow the Hashlamah Project organization’s efforts – particularly in the State of Israel and the Palestinian Territories.
