The Jersey Journal writes a dishonest article involving Marvel's Islamic propaganda

In this apologia article on the Jersey Journal, they not only offer up yet another sugarcoated reference to the Muslim Ms. Marvel, they even talk about a book that appears to be related, and says something more that's quite galling:
There are now comics with Muslim superheroes, like Marvel's Kamala Khan, a New Jersey Muslima of Pakistani origin.

"Muslim Superheroes" chronicles the evolution of Muslim superheroes back to 1944 when Kismet debuted in "Bomber Comics No. 1" followed by Archer of Arabia, Black Tiger, and the Iraqi superhero team Desert Sword, among others.

This book of articles looks at how Western views of Muslims sometimes determines the way the character is written. For example, Kamala wears a burkini, a form of a Muslim woman's covering known as a burka. To some Westerners, it means she needs to be rescued from Muslim men. But author Kevin Wanner says "wearing hijab is a choice that girls and women can make for themselves."
Yeah, keeping telling us all about it. Keep insulting the millions of women in the Muslim world who were tortured and murdered for not wearing such disgusting, unhealthy outfits. This kind of apologia only causes more damage and leads to more victims.

The article even says:
One conscious trait of true Islamic cartoon characters is that Allah figures strongly in their motivations.

"From a Muslim worldview, justice without consciousness of the divine leads to relativism, while a commitment to the letter of the religious law that strips it of its intent is reductionism," Hussein Rashid wrote.
And keep telling us all about "justice" if you will, when what you speak of includes verses like Sura 9:5, which call for killing "infidels".

Book authors who whitewash what the religion is all about and resort to taqqiya (deception) are not people into whose pockets we should be putting our money.
