  1. A question for everyone here. If a Shi'a decided to run for political office in the U.S., how would you feel about that? Do keep in mind that the elected Shi'a would have to make inroads to certain groups that aren't exactly Islamic, such as Pro-Abortion groups, LGBTQ groups, Jewish groups that don't agree with the Israeli approach to Palestine (JStreet, JVP, etc...), Defense contractors, as well as throwing in with any other group that the Republican/Evangelical lobby isn't aligned with. Otherwise without the financial support and endorsements that those groups provide its very difficult for a regular person to get elected. However, what would you think if aligning with these groups helps a Shi'a get elected? We'd have a Shi'a representation in govt., we'd have someone who could speak for Shi'a issues, we'd have someone who in a roundabout way would increase the curiosity towards the Ahle Bayt (عليه السلام). Also, would you have a problem with a Shi'a elected official having their own opinion on topics such as Iran (not every Shi'a in the U.S. is pro-Iran), if they didn't agree with WF as valid political system, etc...or if they had their own opinions on anything else that wouldn't conform with the opinions other Shi'a hold? I'm curious to know how people would feel if a Shi'a somehow miraculously got elected. Its not easy for any Muslim in poltics these days in the U.S. Ilhan Omar is getting butchered day in and day out. (Saudi is financing a good portion of the negative propoganda against her BTW)
