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.

Islam is a religion of peace. The comments of some Muslim people don’t convey that because they are mad about the racism they get.
Debbie Schlussel,first of all, Zayn Malik is only trying to show people that he’s a proud Muslim. He’s free to tweet whatever he wants and you have no say in it. Remember, ”America is the land of liberty”?
you can’t write an article when you know nothing about Islam. You are obviously ignorant of the good side of it. Islam is a religion where God praises you if you smile at someone, where learning is counted as worshiping. It’s about the little things you do. It’s not only about Jihad and fighting for the sake of God. You only see the terrorists who are hiding their plans of spreading terror under the name of Islam. ”la ilaha illallah muhammadur rasulullah” is what people say when they convert to Islam . It means Allah is the only God Muslims worship and it has NO RELATION TO TERRORISM. So next time you write an article, don’t look at one side of something.I know you’ve written this article ages ago, but I just had the time to read it. Peace.

Just another Muslim. on November 29, 2013 at 7:16 am

    Islam is a religion of violence. Tou have not read the books then. Only listened to what you want to hear. As i am an athiest your religion says you have 3 choices. Convert me. Tax me and treat me as 2nd class. Kill me. You also are allowed to rape non muslim women. Peace? You are blind or a liar, it is as vile as any other religion.

    adam on March 26, 2015 at 8:39 pm

He is not a “devout” Muslim, if he was he wouldn’t be drinking or having tatoos because those are extremely taboo for even not so religious Muslims.

And the shahada is a declaration of faith, it’s the same as Christian celebrities saying “Thank God” or “Merry Christmas” on twitter.

Ismail on December 7, 2013 at 10:25 pm

WTF? I’m muslim and u have to SHUT THE FUCK UP. Your burning my bubbles!!! Your just critizizing EVERYTHING! He’s just saying that Islam is a wonderful religion!

Debbie , hon … Get a life …. I mean you are + 40 and still picking on a 21 year old … Not the way to rumble …. And seriously I think you are one of the girls who are obsessed with malik …. Otherwise I’m pretty sure you’d do other things than writing baseless articles ..

Ronald on January 12, 2014 at 2:39 am

You can fuck right off with this entartete musik bullshit, Schlussel.

    Thank u!!!!! I’m half Hindu half Christian and I still love the religion of Islam. Not Becuz of Zayn but Becuz of Allah like u said. She needs to shut the fuck up.

    AC on May 15, 2014 at 9:56 pm

I do not know why, but I’m slightly ashamed to say that I’ve only discovered this article of yours recently. I don’t know whether it is your ignorance that amuses me most or the rather abrasive un-‘halal’ comments being left behind by self-proclaimed ignorant Muslims (who I doubt know themselves what is actually considered Islamic).

It is laughable to consider Zayn Malik a ‘devout’ Muslim and it disappoints me to hear your erroneous claim that the keffeiyah is a symbol of Islamic terrorism. It is the symbol of the anti-Israel movement.

Laughed so hard I did a wee.

Glyn Evans on February 3, 2014 at 4:54 pm

This ‘article’ (if you can really call it that!) has to be one of THE worst pieces of writing I have ever had the misfortune of reading.

There is absolutely no effort on the author’s part to actually research any of the content. She doesn’t understand what Islam requires from a Muslim and the clear and fundamental contradictions in what Zain Malik is as a popstar and what the Islamic faith is about.

I am actually EMBARRASED for the author. This article clearly displays her lazy approach to journalism and a shameful attempt at sensationalising something for undeserved attention.

Would not normally say this, but what an absolute dumb bitch!

TrueZaynGirl on February 22, 2014 at 10:03 am

This article has actually made me laugh. You are ridiculous, utterly delusional, racist and lack sufficient brain cells.

Kate on February 27, 2014 at 6:00 am

this article is beyond ridiculous!

Watch this and you’ll learn about all tht rubbish u have said..

a proud muslim on April 2, 2014 at 4:25 pm

that’s not how keffiyehs are traditionally worn. He’s most likely wearing it as a fashion statement.

Yasmine on April 19, 2014 at 10:35 pm

To Debbie,

Zayn is tweeting about his faith and he isn’t the one influencing people. I am no fan of One Direction but if you don’t like muslims then think about that but don’t write about it and make Muslims happy. I don’t like being rude but why don’t you just go fuck yourself you whore

Jason McHeight on May 15, 2014 at 2:07 pm

GO AND DIE , No one agrees with you asshole racist !!

Omar Hifnawy on June 18, 2014 at 11:25 am

Stop being so racist! We’re human beings. We think, we feel, we LOVE. Stop generalizing. Stop the HATE.

Farah Hassim on June 26, 2014 at 7:45 pm

Come on? Now zayn Malik is a terrorist because he’s Muslim?! Get the hell outta here!! Also, this woman, if you can call her that is a Muslim hating, racist raging psycho! She’s on her period 24/7. And she’s got a couple of hillbilly followers that are almost as racist as her. Check out her twitter, she called miss USA the ugliest yet, have you seen this woman…no further comments… Oh wait, I have one, she’s calling Muslims terrorists, meanwhile her peeps are dropping bombs on innocent children in Gaza, which by the way, she defends left and right…enough said!

Sara on July 22, 2014 at 12:38 am

Stopped reading after the statement “record companies arent stupid, they know islam sells in Britain”

it doesnt……..

Bloody fool. Go write about something you have a clue about

esther kane on July 29, 2014 at 7:01 am

Keep your kids away from ONE DIRECTION because Zayn Malik is a Muslim? Cut the bullshit, Debbie and let the kids of today have their fun with ONE DIRECTION.

I am 50-something guy. On Aug. 13, 2014, out of curiosity and on a lark, I went to see ONE DIRECTION. All of these five guys are fantastic and good enough for an adult audience.

I did not see Zayn give dawah sermons urging the audience to convert to Islam. Not one young girl in the audience wore a hijab. All I saw was a wonderful concert.

I may not agree with Zayn Malik, but ONE DIRECTION is a wonderful band. I hope to see ONE DIRECTION in concert again!

Ross Kardon on September 19, 2014 at 2:37 pm

The biggest irony is that if he were Jewish and someone had written this same article about a Jewish kid you would have been jumping up and shouting anti semitism so loudly!!! You are an embarrassment to the Jewish faith. I have never been to the USA but you if Jews in America are anything Like you the. I am happy to pass on that pleasure!

I also read your piece on Amal alamuddin. You are a mean and hateful individual.

David Zimmerman on September 28, 2014 at 5:22 am

Stop thinking that every muslim is a bad person he is just talking good about his religion so plz respect his mind . islam does respect the other religions so respect ours and if your doughters believe and luv there religion they will not change there religion so do not talk bad about our religion

Retaj Elrhaiby on October 25, 2014 at 7:42 am

I’m not a Muslim yet I think this post is very wrong. Zayn Malik has the right to tweet his beliefs as much as anyone else. He is living his dream, singing his heart out as part of a boyband. His religion and what he believes has nothing to do with that; I don’t recall you mentioning Justin Bieber’s religion even though he tweets “Merry Christmas” and “Thank God”. This article is very offensive and can be considered racist and bullying. Please do not continue articles such as these.

P.s. If you like a band and their music it does not make you “mindless” or ignorant.

blank on January 7, 2015 at 9:44 pm

Seriously? Do you really believe this? All Muslims aren’t terrorists. I’m Muslim and I honestly think that the ISIS and Talibans can just effing go to Hell. They aren’t even proper Muslims, because that is not what our faith teaches us to do. Our Prophet taught our ancestors to teach people with respect, no matter what they do to you. He told us to use words and not our actions. So if you think that all Muslims are terrorists, I personally think you need a new brain because yours could go into the market for a high price, since its never been used. In fact, no one gives a crap if someone Christian or something kills someone or does anything like a terrorist does. I know that right now, I’m being quite rude but all you people need to understand that we aren’t all out to hurt you. Our goal isn’t to hunt you down. Our goal is to do whatever we were sent on Earth to do.

Oh well this isn’t racist at all(!) You called him a ‘paki’, that is a great example of how you should treat other people. Whatever religion you follow, you should always respect others and you are doing the opposite. I would be ashamed if i was you.

book-marking it and checking back frequently!

i agree with zayn malik. Islam is a peaceful religion, if you think Islam is a terrorist or Islam is violent, it means you know Islam from the tv instead of the moeslem.

Hijab Pashmina on March 12, 2017 at 3:14 am

Thanks for your share, this day many people tell bad thing about islam. Everyone who read this should know, that islam is peaceful religion. And please stop any propaganda to islam
