I am honestly considering changing my middle name to “I told you so”, because it seems like the things tech companies have banned me for saying always turn out to be completely true.

Let’s look at Uber and Lyft as a case study.

Today it was reported that Yusuf  Abdi Ali, a Muslim Somali man who has been driving for Uber and Lyft in Virginia is actually a Somali war criminal who carried out acts of torture. An internet search of his name shows numerous documents and news accounts alleging he committed various atrocities as a military commander during Somalia’s civil war in the 1980s.

If you recall, I was banned by the popular ride share apps Uber and Lyft on November 1, 2017.

You’re probably wondering…how in the hell do you get banned from Uber and Lyft?

For voicing concern about the fact that these companies have a pattern of hiring Islamic immigrants, many of whom are actually terrorists and criminals.

On October 31, 2017, an Islamic immigrant named Sayfullo Saipov who was employed by Uber drove a truck into a bike lane in Manhattan, NY where he killed 8 people, and injured 11, in an act of vehicular jihad. When Saipov got out of his car, police say he kept screaming “Allahu Akbar” with a paintball gun in his hand, and left a note in the truck in which he pledged his allegiance to ISIS.

Sayfullo Saipov, 29, has been arrested after allegedly driving a Home Depot truck through pedestrians and cyclists on a bike path in Lower Manhattan off the West Side Highway.

Come to find out, Saipov didn’t even have a valid driver’s license. Not only is Uber hiring ISIS terrorists, but they are clearly not conducting thorough background checks on their drivers, many of whom are Islamic immigrants.

Investigators said Saipov was a green card holder with a “diversity immigrant visa,” meaning he arrived in the country through a lottery program under Barack Obama’s term.

It is worth noting that the CEO of Uber, Dara Khosrowshahi, is also a Muslim immigrant, which could explain why the company has yet to address their growing terror issue.

At the time of the terror attack, I was in NYC, and I saw the dead bodies of victims on the street. I saw blood. I saw the crime scene. And I saw the car used by the ISIS terrorist who worked for Uber.

Two years later, and I am now banned on Twitter, but on the day of the attack, I had nearly 100,000 followers on Twitter and a blue verification mark.

Here is what the media never says when they call me “anti Muslim” and accuse me of “discriminating against Muslim drivers”.

Nearly two months prior to the attack, I was in NYC for Rosh Hashanah with my friend Jane Ruby on September 22, 2017. We had just finished shopping and ordered an Uber. Our Uber driver’s name was Mohammed and he was dressed in full Islamic garb. Jane and I had a lot of shopping bags with us, so the I asked the driver if I could sit up front since the back seat was full of bags. Jane sat directly behind the driver.

We were not talking about politics with the Uber driver. However, Jane asked me where I wanted to eat Rosh Hashanah dinner. When Mohammed the Uber driver heard us say Rosh Hashanah, he aggressively slammed on the breaks and pulled over on the side of the street and told us to get out of his car. We told him he had not yet completed the ride, and when we said he needed to actually bring us to our destination, he yelled at us and drove away. In other words, Mohammed the Uber driver denied service to two Jewish women because he realized we were Jewish. I took a picture of him from the front seat before I got out of the Uber, for evidence.

When this happened, Jane and I filed a complaint with Uber and the NYC Commission on Human Rights.


At the time of the terrorist attack on Halloween 2017, I had my own personal experience of getting kicked out of an Uber by a radical Muslim driver who hates Jews, and then I witnessed the scene of where an ISIS terrorist employed by Uber killed 8 people with a truck. In case you haven’t noticed, Uber and Lyft have A LOT of Muskim drivers, and these two incidents involving Muslim drivers really concerned me.

One day after the attack, I tweeted about how someone needed to create a non-Islamic version of Uber and Lyft for the safety of the consumer. Living in New York at the time, I’d say that 7 out of 10 times I ordered an Uber or Lyft, I would get a Muslim driver. I don’t hate Muslims, but I am aware of the what Islam teaches.

As a Jewish American woman, I represent everything Islam opposes. x

In Islam, women have less rights than men, men are allowed to beat and rape women, and the Quran, which is read by all Muslims, calls for the killing of Jews. If Uber is hiring ISIS terrorists and if Muslim drivers are kicking Jewish women out of their cars, why would I want to ride with Muslim drivers? I care about my safety. Does not wanting to be raped or killed in a terrorist attack make me an evil person?

No. It makes me smart.

Within hours of posting my tweet about Islamic immigrant Uber drivers, Uber and Lyft released statements saying I was permanently banned from their platforms for my tweets which were justified by facts.

However, Uber never released a public statement explaining why they hired an ISIS terrorist who didn’t have a valid driver’s license, and they also never explained why they never punished Mohammed the Uber driver after he kicked two Jewish women out of the car.

Again… Uber has a Muslim CEO, so maybe the answers to my questions are right in front of my face. Who knows.


Now that I am the most censored woman in America, having been banned on every single social media platform, including: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Uber, Uber Eats, Lyft, PayPal, Venmo, GoFundMe, Teespring, Medium, and having my online access to my Chase Bank account suspended, it is worth noting that I have been banned for telling the truth as a journalist in the United States of America.

Unlike many Uber and Lyft drivers, I am actually a tax-paying US citizen. I pledge allegiance to flag, of the United States of America. Not the black flag of Jihad like Uber’s ISIS drivers.

Uber and Lyft banned me for my truthful comments about Islamic immigrant drivers they hired, and then Twitter banned me for calling Ilhan Omar “anti-Jewish”, which is undeniable.

On November 2, 2017, I tweeted, “Uber deserves to be sued not only for this (banning me), but for employing terrorists who rape, discriminate, and kill. Disgusting.”

It’s been 2 years, and as you can see, not much has changed with Uber and many of their Islamic drivers…

You might be thinking, “oh come on. This is only two examples. Uber doesn’t have a problem.” These aren’t the only crimes committed by Islamic Uber and Lyft drivers, and I am still banned.

One month after I was banned by Uber and Lyft, a British diplomat named Rebecca Dykes was raped and murdered by a Muslim Uber driver in Lebanon. When asked why he raped and killed her, the Muslim driver named “Tariq H” said he felt like he was allowed to kill her because her skirt was too short.

This is all in the Quran folks. And there are nearly 2 billion Muslim people on this planet who believe the same thing. It’s commanded in the Quran by Mohammed. Mohammed was a warlord, a rapist, a pedophile, and a killer. But in Islam, Mohammed is viewed as the “perfect man”.

In August 2017, Mohiussunnath Chowdhury, an Isis-supporting Uber driver tried to commit a terror attack outside Buckingham Palace with his car because of “hatred” for the Queen. He was accused of attacking police officers guarding the official royal residence with a sword.

You get the point. But you would be reading this all year if I listed every single case of an Islamic Uber or Lyft driver raping women, killing women, discriminating against pregnant women, Jews, Christians, and gays or using their cars to commit acts of Islamic terror.

I have been deemed a racist and a white supremacist for speaking truth, for simply trying to keep people who use these apps safe.

Speaking truth should not be a banable offense. But, sadly, as you can see through my case, speaking truth will get you de-platformed and un-personed.

Perhaps it’s time for Uber and Lyft to address their Islamic issue head on instead of making me out to be the biggest terrorist on the Internet.

After all, they are actually employing terrorists. I’m just doing my job as a journalist and reporting the truth.

I’d say “hate to say I told you so”, but I actually don’t, because I love being right.
