Oprah’s Dubai Disinformation Specialist Lamees Hamdan & Hubby
Did you know that Dubai is a “multi-cultural” human rights champion? Did you know that no Muslim women under 60 wear a burqa or niqab (full ninja Islamic face veil)? Did you know that the hijab (Islamic headscarf) is not Islamic or religious but “cultural”? Did you know that Dubai and Norway are much better countries than America because they care about their people by giving them nationalized healthcare? Did you know that Turkey is a “progressive Muslim” country where women don’t have to wear the Islamic headscarf?
I learned all of these lies–and Oprah Winfrey’s audience eagerly ingested them–on her daytime talk show, yesterday. It’s yet more of the same old career-long pro-Islamist (and anti-Israel, as well as anti-Semitic) propaganda Oprah has posited and I’ve document over a series of time, some of which is posted at my Domain Name, OprahSucks.com.
On a particularly nauseating new episode of “Oprah,” the hostess did one of her frequent “Around the World with Oprah” shows, in which she purported to show how the average woman has a much better life in various socialist, Communist, and Muslim states.
In her past “around the world” shows, HRHSBotU [Her Royal Highness Supreme Being of the Universe] Oprah shilled for Cuba a la Michael Moore and called Kuwait, “the only democracy in the Middle East.” Wrong. Kuwait is an Islamic monarchy ruled by the Al-Sabah family, with minor show elections (which the Kuwaiti Emir has occasionally, um, “overruled”). The only democracy in the Middle East is Israel. But don’t expect Oprah–whose shows and magazine have been frequently anti-Israel and pan-Islamic–to tell the truth. Oprah’s features on women in Jordan, Kuwait, and Qatar have featured women in Western dress without the Islamic headscarves–with the women telling us how great, liberal, and paradise-esque their lives there are. Hmmm . . . maybe the Oprah show should change its name to “Fantasy Island.”
Yesterday’s episode was no different. Women in Norway and Dubai (on of the United Arab Emirates) criticized America for not having national healthcare. And, of course, HRHSBotU chimed in with agreement and also attacked America.
Then, came more disinformation. Viewers were treated to a feature on Dr. Lamees Hamdan, a Dubaian Muslim medical doctor and the usual Gulf State liar. And Oprah helped with the lies. (Watch the video.) Dr. Hamdan was carefully picked by the Oprah staff. She spoke perfect English without an accent and was clearly educated and raised somewhere in the West, something Oprah didn’t share with her gullible, naive audience. Unlike many women in Dubai, she did not wear a headscarf and was very Western. She kept saying how the women in Dubai are “just like us.” Sure, they are.
Oprah introduced the segment by telling her audience that Dubai is “one of the most multi-cultural places on Earth.” It’s hilarious that Dubai is called “multi-cultural,” when it’s well known that Jews with Israeli passports or Israeli stamps on their passports aren’t allowed in. Was Oprah asleep during the whole mess earlier this year, when Dubai refused to allow Israeli tennis player Shahar Pe’er into the country to play in the Dubai Tennis Championships? No. She wasn’t asleep. She’s just a liar. There wasn’t a word about Dubai’s apartheid against Jews and Israelis on the Oprah show. Shocker. I guess that’s “multi-minus-Israel-and-Jews-cultural.”
It’s also hilarious to call Dubai “multi-cultural” because the reason it has so many people of other nationalities–most of them from the Philippines, India, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka–is that they are essentially slaves (many of them beaten and tortured) to the wealthy, lazy Dubaian population, who don’t do any work. Filipinos are the maids, construction workers, cooks, chauffeurs, and handymen for Dubaians for very little pay. Then, there are the many human rights reports detailing how Dubai imported against their will and enslaves young Bangladeshi and Sri Lankan boys to be camel jockeys and sex slaves. None of this was mentioned, although we were shown Dr. Hamdan’s smiling Filipino “housemaid.”
It’s also hilarious for Oprah to call Dubai “multi-cultural” when, as I noted on this site, the country just recently began mass deportations of all of its Shi’ite Muslim population. Not a hint about that from HRHSBotU Oprah.
Oprah told us that “only ten percent of [Dubai's] population are locals,” as part of her justification for calling it “one of the most multi-cultural places on Earth.” But that’s not exactly the whole picture. Not only are most of the other 90% mistreated servants and slaves, but they are NOT allowed to become citizens, own property, or have any rights. Yes, Dubai relaxed some property restrictions to allow the wealthy and celebrities, like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, to buy property there. But for most others, foreigners–particularly non-Muslims–are persona non-grata at best, and frequently the object of molestation and abuse or worse.
But Oprah’s audience, predictably, didn’t hear about any of this. Instead they were fed this baloney:
Lamees says women in her country have a lot in common with other wives and mothers around the world. “We’re all working moms. We all have the same priorities. We all face the same challenges,” she says.
Really? Has one of Lamees Hamdan’s kids ever been kidnapped and forced to be a sex slave or camel jockey? Has she ever been denied entry into a country because she’s a Jew and has an Israeli stamp on her passport? Get real. This woman lives in a giant mansion, has a Filipino “housemaid” and admits she doesn’t cook because her mother-in-law’s chef makes their meals.
Dr. Hamdan told Oprah that women in Dubai don’t have to wear the headscarf (the Islamic “hijab”) if they don’t want to, and that “as a feminist,” she’s upset no-one claims Islamic men are subjugated for wearing their keffiyeh headscarves. (She also claimed women choose to wear it and aren’t forced, another lie.) Uh, how many men have you seen beaten, tortured, or killed for not wearing a keffiyeh? How many Islamic men cover their faces (unless they’re posing for a terrorist video and about to behead some assorted Westerner they’ve kidnapped)? And how many Islamic men in the West do you see wearing the scarf versus how many women are forced to wear it?
Dr. Hamdan showed us her mother-in-law, who wears a burqa metal contraption covering her face. Oprah asked us if all women in Dubai wear that. Dr. Hamdan told us that this is a myth, that “no one under 60 wears a burqa” or niqab, anywhere. Uh, really? Has this lying chick been to Afghanistan or Saudi Arabia lately? Or how ’bout the streets of her own country and inside its shopping malls? Cue the “David Hasselhoff in Dubai with young full-ninja-garbed Muslim girls video“:
Do these girls look age 60 or older? I know, it’s hard to tell b/c they’re completely covered in black shmattas.
(Yes, these women in the Hasselhoff video in Dubai are from Saudi Arabia, but in an appearance on ABC’s hagfest, “The View,” Hasselhoff said that many of the women in Dubai dressed just like them, with their faces completely covered.)
Dr. Hamdan also told us that the headscarf is “not religious. That’s a myth. It’s cultural.” Really? Then, why do Islamic women all over the world where the headscarf? Why does virtually every mosque require women to wear one? Why do Islamic men force women to wear one? And how many non-Islamic “cultures” have women wear a hijab? It’s a flat out lie. Clearly, the headscarf is, indeed, religious.
Dr. Hamdan told Oprah how she doesn’t understand how the American government can say it cares about its people, since it doesn’t offer free healthcare for everyone the way they do in Dubai. That’s interesting, since the richest Dubaians come to America for surgery. They know where healthcare is truly “offered.” It’s the place where you get what you pay for.
But, hey, when a Prince of “liberal, multi-cultural” Dubai nearly tortures you to death over some grain you sold him, then, you, too, can experience the Dubaian “paradise” and its “free healthcare.”
Oprah also showed us women in Turkey, and included this baloney:
A progressive Muslim country, women are free to wear whatever they like.
Really? In fact, Turkey is NOT progressive. It’s become more extreme than ever and getting worse. Many women are forced to wear hijabs (Islamic headscarves), and in recent years, there have been cases wear they’ve been murdered by relatives and others for not doing so. But don’t leave it to Oprah to be concerned with stubborn things like facts.
Your daily does in the fraud Oprah perpetrates on American women. Their lives are empty and meaningless. But the lives of Islamic women in Dubai and Turkey are happy, full, and luxe.
