Boy Band Jihad: Mega Pop Star Pimping Islam on Your Daughters

By Debbie Schlussel

Jihad is sneaking into American girls’ favorite pop band.

If you have young daughters, then you know that the boy band, “One Direction,” is all the rage to young girls around the world, especially in the United States. As big, if not bigger than Justin Bieber. Recently, President Obama’s daughter, Malia, was photographed attending their Washington, DC-area concert. And screaming tween and teen girls greet them all over America. But, even if you’ve heard of the band, you probably don’t know that one of its members, Zayn Malik, is pimping Islam on your kids. That’s in addition to his Arabic tattoos and frequent donning of the keffiyeh, the official garb of Islamic terrorism.


One Direction’s Zayn Malik Proselytizes Islam to Your Kids

Malik, a devout British Muslim whose family is from Pakistan, has used social media to proselytize Islam to his primarily female fans around the world. He not only tweeted about fasting for Ramadan, but told fans that allah is the only god and that only Mohammed is G-d’s true prophet. Not the kind of thing you expect your kids to hear sandwiched in between cheesy, saccharin-sweet songs coming out of the mouths of over-moussed and over-gelled boy band tools. But that’s what’s happening. Check out the tweets, below, from Malik. “La ila ha ill lalla ho muhammed door rasoolalah,” is the militant statement Muslims say in their prayers every day, meaning, “There is no god but allah and Mohammed is the prophet of G-d.” He also retweeted this in Arabic from the extremist Islamic Thoughts Twitter account. The phrase is meant to say that only Islam is the true religion and only Mohammed is a real prophet of G-d. It’s part of the “Shehadah,” the Muslim oath of martyrdom that comprises conversion to Islam. Muslims constantly chant the sentence at anti-Israel, pro-HAMAS, and pro-Hezbollah rallies. I’ve heard them chant it, for example, at almost every such rally I’ve attended undercover in the Detroit and Dearbornistan areas.

And the scary thing is that millions of girls in America and around the world are infatuated with the members of One Direction, including Malik. He’s no dummy. He knows the power he has over these mindless girls and is using that influence to preach the Islamic faith to them and try to convert them. It’s dangerous. And there’s a reason he tweeted that he didn’t have a girlfriend on the same day he tweeted Islamic preaching. Hey, if you convert to Islam, you can be my girltoy. And it appears that Malik, after he was did well on Great Britain’s “X Factor,” was chosen for the boy band specifically because he’s a Paki Muslim, to appeal to that rapidly growing demographic in the UK. Managers, marketers, record companies, and agents aren’t stupid. They know that Islam sells in Britain, and they picked an Islamic face for the band. Who cares if he’s trying to convert your daughters? They gotta get paid.

When I was a kid, teen heartthrobs. like Rick Springfield and Shaun Cassidy, were far more innocuous and limited to TV shows, concerts, and fan magazines, like “Tiger Beat.” They didn’t try to impose their religious cult upon their female fans. Now, parents have far less ability and little time to read through the mostly innocent-sounding social media messages of boy bands to find the pan-Islamic propaganda tweets in between. But they must. Know the pop culture that is infecting your kids and know what it stands far.

Keep your daughters away from Zayn Malik’s enticing jihad. With the boy band One Direction, it’s all about pimping Islam amid the deceptive visage of angelic, effeminate boys in a band. Yup, for them there is definitely One Direction: facing Mecca.

And if you’re ever curious to see One Direction in concert, you can get tickets online here.

What’up Debbie?
It’s your home girl Nini. Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. I was buissy. If you must know, unlike you, some people actually have lives to live. Shocking? I know. I’m not going to waste my time insulting you (anymore) ( look up my previous comments). Thnx to you, I have learned a lot about the world. I don’t personally live in America, but I visit often. Whenever I come, I’m always greeted by friendly faces. It’s a real shame that people like you, ruin a nation’s pride/reputation. America is amazing, but some people that live there aren’t.
Jews and Muslims have more in common than you think. If you’ll just do your research, then maybe you’ll start to except Islam. Nobody can force you to do anything. Only you can force yourself to at least try.
Please don’t ruin the proud land that you call home. I am also proud to say that I love America. Even though I live in Canada. I only takes me an hour to get to the border. But it’s an hour well spent.

Umbrean, thank you soooooooooo much for posting that YouTube link. I honestly and truly appreciate it. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. B4 watching that video, I felt like an underweight (I’m petite) bull ready to charge. But during and after that video, I felt soo alive. You & the mad in the video have touched many souls. I shared the link to all my friends on my social networks and they’ve spread it like a wildfire. I’m proud to call myself a Muslim. And clearly I’m not alone.

Thanks again Umbrean. Thank you.

Mwahh!!!!!! :*

Nini on September 1, 2012 at 10:57 pm

You seriosly need to gt a life. Zayn malik has the right to tweet whatever he wants without haters like u jumping on the internet spouting hateful stuff. Im guessing u hav never heard of the 21st century and freedon of speech. Its beacause of people like u that there r so many conflicts. B.T.W that scarf was a fashion statement in britian! Zayn malik 4ever!!!! 1D

Zaineb on September 3, 2012 at 5:44 am

Well..lady.(well,I want to call you cΓ»nt at first,but..meh.)
You knew by attacking him people will “find” you,and by doing that they can accidentaly see what’s else in your site. Cheap trick lady..! You must be so desperate huh? 0_o
Your comment about the “shawl” he’s wearing is the most hillarious of all.. XD Have you ever been to Milan Fashions Show or at least watched one?( I recommend youtube if you haven’t know where to find,just in case you’re so dumb.) It’s a trend lady..so are you going to say these designers,who used this “shawl” in their fashion show a bunch of terrorist as well? Better blame the male models too.. Xp Have you lost all your pride and dignity..till you have to use this kind of method to achieve something? πŸ™‚ Bye lady..

hi there you deppie or what ever πŸ™‚ you have no right to talk about US like that hunny im am muslim becouse thats what i believe in and thats what i think fits all the secrets of the world and the la ellah ella allah mohammed rasol allah is the shortcut to what we belive in so the zayn didnt say go grap a sword or a gun and kill non muslims killing in our rellegion is a mistacke that can never be forgeven BTW and its mentioned that we have to treate all of other religions like sisters and brothers we are not baad πŸ™‚ we are PEOPLE that you have to respect even if you dont want to πŸ™‚

TEmi on September 5, 2012 at 7:37 pm

+ hes is a free person if you think its wrong for him to post RaMazan kareem and fastin then you should go make all of the stars stop wearing CROSSES and stop tweeting marry crismass so they wont be telling people to belive in what they belive in not that i dont want them to but thats what you think πŸ™‚ and i think that you are simply stupid to post that > and you can clearly see how his band love him so much and and hes so sweet and kind to them as well so dont act smart

TEmi on September 5, 2012 at 7:44 pm

+ that picture with a segguret in it is just as fake as you are <3 πŸ™‚

TEmi on September 5, 2012 at 7:45 pm

Stories like this bring a smile to my face, as they expose the sheer stupidity that many of us have to deal with on a daily basis as Muslims. I can only imagine, 40 or 50 years from now, watching some documentary about how these moronic sociopaths tried so hard to demonize one particular group of people and ultimately failed. I’m sure these hate tactics go don’t go past anyone with a 6th grade or higher education and/or has any grasp of reality.

shawn on September 8, 2012 at 4:39 pm

you r the stupidest lady every one wears a so called kafiyah lady gaga brenda song angline jolie ur a dumb ass bitch go fuck your racist ass

Giovanna on September 8, 2012 at 11:24 pm

WOW…..how about we all learn to argue and disagree like human beings? Foul language does not make you look intelligent or worldly. Horrific grammar does not help your argument either. Bad grammar and bad language makes you appear unintelligent, like a person who has no grounds for his/her argument or opinion. If you do not agree with someone/Debbie, say why you don’t and support you argument with FACTS. Reading some of these responses only (sadly) confirms for me the state of education in the U.S./world today. Oh and by the way, last I checked, it is still OK (in the U.S., at least,) to have a different opinion from someone else. Americans have died for this right and American “comment posters” to this site should remember that fact.

Your word of the day is….”civil”….it means respectful, deferential, gracious. Learn it!

SadinNYC on September 12, 2012 at 10:12 am

Debbie if you’re reading this I just want to say that teenage girls are NOT going to be going muslim just to be liked by Zayn and this is coming from a teen.
I also think this is disrespectful how you think that wearing a keffiyeh is a sign sign of terrorism.

I’m going to put this in the nicest way possible:

kitkat13 on September 12, 2012 at 11:26 am

Debbie you need to watch this video to see how wrong you are, you made a big mistake in the whole of this article, just take the time to watch just 10 minutes :http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&feature=fvwp&v=guMgwj_U7k8

Buttermeupp on September 12, 2012 at 3:25 pm

Hello πŸ™‚ you are a stupid bitch k. bye.

rabbits on September 13, 2012 at 9:46 am

You’re just as scary as a terrorist as you try to spread lies and hate just like they do. The only difference is you hide like a coward behind a keyboard. People like you are really the scum of the earth. Delusional, lacking a soul, racist, and simply just a ghoul.

Jihad>schlussel on September 14, 2012 at 2:27 am

Zayn is not a terrorist. And also, your attempt to prove that he’s a terrorist because he believes that his religion is the only true one is completely irrelevant. EVERYONE believes that their religion is the only true one, and he has every right to tweet about it as much as he wants. I’m a huge fan of One Direction, and I’m as Christian as it gets. Stop being so paranoid. Yes. There is ONE Muslim in One Direction. There are also FOUR devout Christians, so your whole “One Direction was created to convert the world to Islam” argument is ridiculous. Did you know there’s such a thing as a peaceful Muslim? WOW, those exist. And Zayn’s one of them. Shocker. Mind blown. OMG. Seriously though, get a life. Zayn just wants to sing, k? Let him do that. Stop being ignorant and freaking out over nothing. The world’s a happier place when you accept other religions, hon.

Speaking For Directioners on September 14, 2012 at 11:17 pm


Watch this and see how wrong your blog is!!

Minnie432 on September 15, 2012 at 11:19 am

That’s utterly wrong. Zayn isn’t trying to convert female fans to Islam, and just tweeting those 4-5 tweets to all of your fans, doesn’t convince you to change your religion. Why can’t he talk about Islam? It’s his religion, for God’s sake! There’s no such rule or law stating that you can’t talk about your religion to your fans, is there? So please, get a life! I don’t even think there is anyone else who thinks Zayn Malik is trying to convert female fans to Islam, except you!
And only if you knew, what that tattoo on his chest means! I am a Pakistani Muslim and I understand Arabic and Urdu names. The tattoo reads “WALTER”, which is his grandpa’s name. He got this tattoo, in memory of his now dead grandpa. Don’t post false info. And unless you don’t know the truth, don’t act like you know everthing!

Jayne on September 15, 2012 at 1:18 pm

You are paranoid and completely insane This type of jibberish gives Americans a bad name Just stop and go away

Jaime on September 15, 2012 at 2:53 pm

You are ignorant, you know that? He’s not trying to turn his fangirls into muslims, that’s just naive and paranoid of you. And just because he says he has no GF it means girls who converts to Islam can date him? Congrats, you’ve just showed your lack of rational thought. And, btw, muslims are not allowed to have tattoos, so basically, he’s not a very religious muslim if he has tattoos.

MrAkmalDanish on September 17, 2012 at 9:44 am

you are o wrong why u think islam is a bad thing >???

and i really hope u well study more about islam and know more a bout it

any way thanq but if u dont know a bout thing just dont wrote about it

Roory on September 17, 2012 at 2:15 pm

You are a chooth, and a son of a chooth. Google that if you don’t understand it dumass. You are speaking like a 10 years old.

Haa Haa on September 18, 2012 at 3:44 pm

How’s he a Jihadist, he clearly isn’t very strict in regards to Islam since he indluges in women and music etc.?

Yeah, Muslims are anti-Israeli bitch, and what? What’s wrong with being against a terrorist state which slaughters innocent women and children mercilessly, imposes their blockades on an entire city (Gaza), uses Palestinian civilians as human shields and violates more UN resolutions than any other nation in the world and steals the homes of Palestinian families.

Hussain on September 21, 2012 at 7:10 am

Don’t tell something that u don’t know. .
From your statement i knOw something that you’re not smarter than 5 years old children. .
Think more before saying something,
we have own belief so don’t judge others. .

Ica on September 22, 2012 at 4:34 am

oh really?!! come on !! we still have a limited brains like yours?what a way to make people live in peace !!! really funny !
is all your fingers are the same?NOOO
so stop blaming zayn and see your self first !! damn !and we will be always beside zayn and the one direction no matter what u or other ppl say

sanyourita on September 24, 2012 at 5:57 am

I’m not even mad. This whole blog was a really hilarious joke. Zayn is not trying to convert his fans to his religion. I’m not converting, and neither are millions of other girls just cause he talks about it. And by the way.. Tweeting about his religion is not that big of a deal. we’re talking about one direction. They talk about sex, they act gay with each other and curse. And your mad cause he tweets things about his religion? Lol nice try. That was really funny to read

Mica on September 24, 2012 at 3:13 pm

This blog is so true. Truth is finally told about this kid.

Im a fan of the late whitney houston (RIP) , how often you heard she said “praise the lord” “”Praise Jesus” I was her fan for the last 15 years and yes Im still a Muslim . So you are a racist bigot

wh1234 on October 5, 2012 at 10:44 pm

You are retarded. He isnt a terrorist. Just because hes talking about his religion doesnt mean that he is trying to make us his religion. Christains talk about there religion all the time and no one has a problem with it so stfu and gtfo.

I Love One Direction on October 7, 2012 at 3:09 pm

Who cares u see Christina on twitter posting thing bout God you see them have tattoos of crosses n pictures of Jesus do we call them out of imposing a certen type of religion…no….do we sometimes chant some of the rings that people WE look up to a.k.a ZAyn yes you know why cause that’s our way to show them we apreaceate them and exept them. Calling out one person doing this calling out that one religion you might as well do the same to EVERYONE AND EVERY RELIGION. I have NOTHING against other religion and DEFENEY not to the person who hold that religion unless that one person gives me a reason I won’t like then but I would NEVER hold hate toward that persons religion so know what…. Go…..to…….HELL..!.. Sorry to others besides those who wrote this article if I attended you I an SO sorry :)n if you agree with this article stfu n gtof!!

One direction on October 7, 2012 at 10:33 pm

You are fucking ILL Mentaly! Go get a life.
Who are you to judge! Did your parents give birth to a lunitic. (YOU)
Racist Biot! You don’t deserve to live. So what if your a Muslim,Christian or Jewish .

No one likes you
You are a lame joke!

Carter jr on October 8, 2012 at 7:50 am

This has got to be one of the most ridiculous, uneducated and uncultured pieces of writing I have ever read. A sad and pathetic attempt to breed hatred in this world.

Grow up!

D on October 9, 2012 at 10:46 am

You right-winged american trash! You have got to be kidding me? I didn’t know that being proud of a religion made someone a terrorist? A minority of Muslim people are terrorists! And you know what, Christian terrorists exist too. You are a racist bigot who obviously succumbs to stereotypes. Shame, thought America had moved on from this racist crap. For the record the keffiyeh has been worn by Chris Brown, Kirstin Dunst, David Beckham and Ashley Olsen? WOW America’s sweetheart wearing a scarf around her neck? Must be a terrorist out to convert her followers! God this story is a joke! I live in Australia and quite frankly we are about 15 years ahead of you idiots morally, and I’m speaking about the trashy Aussies! WOW

B on October 9, 2012 at 7:40 pm

Complete Nonsense! Zayn is a muslim but it does not mean he’s a terrorist or whatever! You’re tlaking complete nonsence! Racist! Whatever religion it is, we’re all humans, right?

If there are over millions of muslims around the world, it means there are millions of terrorists! We should leave Earth! Where would you go? On Mars??

Nonsense & Rubbish!

Miishaa on October 11, 2012 at 10:05 am

Fucking idiotic comments… Did you even read the whole Article?
She didn’t say his a Terrorist, For fuck sake even if you just read the title you’ll see what’s this about, I’m really starting to get disappointed at peoples mind.
And she didn’t INVENT anything, All she gave was facts and his Tweets…

Ali on October 12, 2012 at 7:55 pm

“Keep your daughters away from Zayn Malik’s enticing jihad.” Do you even know what jihad is, you racist fool…. Your little article just shows how immature and narrow minded you are. Maybe you’re the one people should keep their kids away from because you’re on some personal hate mission. “β€œThere is no god but allah and Mohammed is the prophet of G-d.” He also retweeted this in Arabic from the extremist Islamic Thoughts Twitter account.” Are you actually that stupid? It’s not an extremist account you moron. Get your facts straight because you sound like an idiot. And you obviously have too much time on your hands to be creeping all his tweets. It’s okay, we get it, you’re obsessed with a 19 year old boy you’ll never have, now get over it.

u.durr on October 14, 2012 at 9:30 pm

How foolish you are Debbie Schlussel. Like Monkey…

Sthepanie Marlyer on October 18, 2012 at 2:56 am

Muslim never say anything to anyone’s religion,why do you people do it!

Islam is a Religion of peace and it brings guidence to everyone who needs it!

ToMIi on October 24, 2012 at 3:39 am

Dear Debbie,

You are seriously a deranged, dumb dick-head. There are many problems with your article, as the ideas you have conveyed are seriously wrong, and disturbing. This is coming from two 16-year-old girls, who have a thousand times more sense than you.

Problem number one: your usage of the word ‘jihad’ is grossly incorrect. The word ‘jihad’ means ‘holy war’. You are implying that Zayn Malik is encouraging the teenage girls of this world to begin a holy war, which is totally ridiculous and obviously untrue.

Problem two, your reasoning that Zayn Malik is trying to impose Islamic religion upon his fans is imprudent and foolish. How is wearing a plaid scarf, as costumed by the X Factor, even remotely similar to an Arabic headdress? What does an item of modern fashion have to do with Islamic terrorism? We suggest you ensure accurate knowledge of your writing subjects to ensure looking even less foolish and stupid than you already do.

If any other member of the band began to express their faith in any other religion, such as Catholicism or Christianity, on social media, would you find it necessary to write another article at this level of disdain? We think not.

To summarise, you are an idiot with ridiculously poor reasoning skills and very little knowledge, if any, on the topics you write about. Referring to peoples’ beliefs as cults are ridiculous, again highlighting your lack of knowledge on the subject. Your stereotyping of the Islamic faith is disgusting at best, and highly offensive to those who enjoy their faith without the moral implications you have inferred.

You are of course entitled to your opinion, however, we would suggest a re-visit to your level of reasoning and your skills in critical analysis and journalism.

Yours truly,
Bridget and Madeleine of Australia

Bridget & Madeleine on October 24, 2012 at 9:02 pm

look debbie zayne is just perusing his dream he can tweet all he wants about his religion and btw his tattooo has the name of his late grandpa on it so get ur facts right b 4 u write untrue crap
