SABA AHMED, a baghead from Pakistan, who quotes from the filthy qur’an and plays disgusting Arabic music on her website, thinks she can represent real Americans. Show her she is not fit to represent this country. She should go back where she belongs: Pakistan.
WARNING: if you open this link to her website, SABA AHMED, you will be subjected to screeching Arabic prayers and music. Arabic is the first thing you see on her website:
بِسْمِ اللّهِ الرَّحْمـَنِ الرَّحِيم
الْحَمْدُ للّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِين الرَّحمـنِ الرَّحِيم مَـالِكِ يَوْمِ الدِّين إِيَّاك نَعْبُدُ وإِيَّاكَ نَسْتَعِين اهدِنَــــا الصِّرَاطَ المُستَقِيمَ صِرَاطَ الَّذِينَ أَنعَمتَ عَلَيهِمْ غَيرِ المَغضُوبِ عَلَيهِمْ وَلاَ الضَّالِّين
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful. All praise belongs to God, Lord of the Universe, the Beneficent, the Merciful and Master of the Day of Judgment. (Lord), You alone We do worship and from You alone we do seek assistance, (Lord), guide us to the right path, the path of those to whom You have granted blessings, those who are neither subject to Your anger nor have gone astray. Amen! (The Holy Quran, 1:1-7)
Saba Ahmed, was born and raised in Islamabad, Pakistan. She moved to Portland, Oregon for college and earned her Bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering and Physics from Portland State University. Once Saba started to take an interest in political work, she worked for Governor Ted Kulongoski and Congressman Earl Blumenauer to gain more political experience. She also worked at Intel in several engineering and management roles. Saba will be completing her joint Juris Doctorate-MBA degrees later this year with a focus on intellectual property law from Lewis and Clark Law School and University of Portland.
Prior to joining the first class of Emerge Oregon, Saba participated in the New Leadership Oregon (NLO) program and met several politically engaged women who encouraged her to apply for Emerge. Saba felt the concept of running for political office was still a fairly abstract concept since she is only in her early twenties. Yet, upon gaining acceptance and beginning her involvement with Emerge Oregon, Saba has gained the support and confidence to crystallize her interest in running for Congress in the future. She says, “I realize that it will be a tough road and it may take several years, but I am willing to give it my best.”
Saba has found political networking to be more accessible and comfortable since she has aligned herself with Emerge. Saba says people are generally very “impressed and intimidated” when they learn she is a program member of Emerge, because they recognize “a new powerful, highly-connected group of Oregon women will be running for office.”
Upon graduating law school, Saba plans to explore the possibility of running for U.S. House of Representatives. “The United States and the State of Oregon have blessed me with so much,” she says, “I would like to give it back through public service.”
She believes her corporate background will help her participate in conversations regarding our economy. The economic climate in Oregon is a particularly compelling factor for Saba’s candidacy – they have the 4th highest unemployment rate in the country.
Growing up in Pakistan gives Saba a unique vantage point into foreign policy. Saba observes that there are few members of Congress who have lived in the Middle East. Without adequate cultural understanding, Saba challenges whether Congress can authentically put forth policy affecting Muslims, Pakistan, and the Middle East. She strongly believes she can help “bridge gaps between the East and West” and contribute to current foreign policy. While Saba appreciates “decisions that are well-researched, they are not the same as someone who has lived in both countries.”
EACH PAGE OF HER WEBSITE OPENS WITH A PASSAGE FROM THE QUR’AN (a book which is totally incompatible with our constitution)
اللَّهُ لا إِلٰهَ إِلّا هُوَ الحَىُّ القَيّومُ ۚ لا تَأخُذُهُ سِنَةٌ وَلا نَومٌ ۚ لَهُ ما فِى السَّمٰوٰتِ وَما فِى الأَرضِ ۗ مَن ذَا الَّذى يَشفَعُ عِندَهُ إِلّا بِإِذنِهِ ۚ يَعلَمُ ما بَينَ أَيديهِم وَما خَلفَهُم ۖ وَلا يُحيطونَ بِشَيءٍ مِن عِلمِهِ إِلّا بِما شاءَ ۚ وَسِعَ كُرسِيُّهُ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالأَرضَ ۖ وَلا يَـٔودُهُ حِفظُهُما ۚ وَهُوَ العَلِىُّ العَظيمُ
Allah exists. There is no God but He, the Everlasting and the Guardian of life. Drowsiness or sleep do not seize him. To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and the earth. No one can intercede with Him for others except by His permission. He knows about people’s present and past. No one can grasp anything from His knowledge besides what He has permitted them to grasp. The heavens and the earth are under His dominion. He does not experience fatigue in preserving them both. He is the Highest and the Greatest. (The Holy Quran 2:255)
SOME OF HER POSITIONS:
– It shouldn’t take 15-20 years to legally bring family members to the United States.
– Immigrants should be welcomed with open arms. God teaches us to Welcome Strangers!
– Immigration helps with trade and economic diversity.
Reviving Sustainable Agriculture Industry to provide jobs in Rural Oregon
– Most people are unemployed in rural Oregon. And they will not find work unless we have a focused effort to revive the Agricultural Industry.
– No one should stay hungry in Oregon given the amount of land we have available for harvest.
– As the world population continues to increase, food supplies will be in demand. We need to study best trade crops in Oregon and plant them.
– Almost 40% of high school graduates in Oregon drop out before entering first year of college.
– High School graduation rates stand at about ~50% in Oregon.
– How do we expect these students to compete with students in India and China where they are working hard to develop their human capital?
Ending Wars in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Libya
– We need to bring all our troops home. There is no need for them to be in foreign countries. We need to defend our borders from within not from outside.
– Drone Attacks in Pakistan and Afghanistan are hurting our long-term national security and will come back to haunt us.
