Not only are the Muslims playing the role of the persecuted victim, the criticism of Islam is
gradually being outlawed, starting in England.
It wasn't the Baptists or the Catholics or the Presbyterians who hijacked commercial airliners
and crashed them into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. And with the exception
of the Virginia Tech gunman, every time since 9/11 when there has been a wholesale attack on total
strangers, the actors have been Muslims. Naturally this has resulted in quite a bit of
resentment toward Islam in general, and now the Muslims are turning the tables, to portray
themselves as victims of their own maleficence.
Let's make this perfectly clear: The Muslims are the cause, not the victims, of the
trouble they have stirred up. When they pretend to be offended by having to handle pork
products (as outlined in the upper section of this page), they are the ones who are
abnormal, and if they are so greatly offended by America's culture and traditions, they
shouldn't have come here to live.
Suspicion and resentment of Muslims didn't start on 9/11, and the Muslims can't expect it to
wear off in five or ten years, especially since there have been
other incidents since then.
The grand prize in the "Who's the Biggest Victim" contest goes to the
Six Imams at the Minneapolis airport, who
made quite a stink on November 20, 2006, after they went out of their way to act like potential
hijackers and then started filing lawsuits when people objected. If you're a Muslim and you
want to act like a crazed antisocial fanatic, the airport is not the place for it.

a persecuted group. Meanwhile they persecute others.
People Come Out for Tommy Robinson at London's Whitehall. The amount of misinformation is still out there in
relation to Tommy, propagated by the media, of course, via their use of buzzwords and the very worst possible images they can
obtain. I would have thought that 20,000 politically and legally minded, liberty conscious individuals who had taken
the time to travel to London in order to protest the persecution of a UK citizen who dares to speak out about Islam would
merit better headlines and a deeper and more honest reportage. The other takeaway from the event is the behaviour of
the left-wing youth of today, who are incapable of critical or logical thinking, and who are instead walking around as raw
balls of uninformed and uncontrolled emotion.
Massive Crowds Gather to Hear Geert Wilders Demand Tommy Robinson's Release. Massive crowds turned out in London
on Saturday [6/9/2018] to rally for free speech and hear Dutch firebrand Geert Wilders demand the release of Tommy Robinson from
prison. "It's so good to see so many of you here today, you are all heroes for being here today," said the Freedom Party
leader, an outspoken critic of radical Islam who rose to second place in the Dutch national elections last year.
Tommy Robinson Gets Locked Up, Terrorists Get Released. In a recent column, Dr. Victor Davis Hanson wrote,
"It is more dangerous for a European citizen to publicly object to illegal immigration than for a foreigner to enter Europe
illegally." The UK also embraces a similar principle: in Britain, it's more dangerous to criticize sexual predators than
it is to be one.
Robinson 'Disappears': Free Speech in England Is Dead. The arrest of British free speech activist Tommy
Robinson has sent shockwaves across the Anglosphere. The United Kingdom, once dedicated to the values of freedom, has
taken a path toward authoritarian government and away from freedom. The once great nation, which created the Magna
Carta and once commanded an empire, is now the land of tyranny. Unless the British people love their freedom enough and
fight this injustice in fierce fashion, it will remain a land silenced by intimidation and fear. The authoritarian
socialist government of the United Kingdom has been out to get Robinson for years on anything it can. It has harassed,
intimidated, arrested, and incarcerated Robinson, as it did last May, since it is now apparently a "crime" to report on the
decades-long systematic rape of hundreds of non-Muslim children by gangs of Muslim men, who are now apparently a protected
class of people.
Trashing Tommy Robinson.
"What we cannot complain is that Tommy Robinson is being detained illegally," asserts British journalist James Delingpole in
a Monday [6/4/2018] article for Breitbart. Now, Delingpole is supposed to be one of the good guys when it comes to this sort
of thing. In the same article, in fact, he maintains that he is friendly with Robinson, who on May 25 was arrested while
streaming live on Facebook from outside Leeds Criminal Court, where several Muslims were being tried for mass child rape.
Tommy was then brought before a judge who sent him straight to prison for having violated the terms under which he was released
by another judge last year. Delingpole says he admires Tommy and considers him brave. At the same time, alas,
Delingpole charges that Tommy is "an adrenaline junkie who sometimes pushes it that bit too far." First, anent "adrenaline
junkie": I'd suggest that a lot of the great men and women of history were probably adrenaline junkies. I think Trump is
one. Thomas Edison barely slept. Neither did Nikola Tesla. Or Leonardo da Vinci. "Pushing too far"?
Tommy's "offense" last year was trying to videotape alleged Muslim pedophiles outside a courthouse in Canterbury.
Texas Commission on Law
Enforcement bows to Muslims, rejects credits for training on sharia and jihad. After receiving complaints from
advocacy groups about officers getting education credit for taking a class taught by an anti-Islamic speaker, the Texas
Commission on Law Enforcement reversed an earlier statement and said it will not grant hours to those who attended the
session. The commission's director sent a letter Wednesday to the Concho Valley Regional Law Enforcement Academy,
stating it was rejecting credit hours for a day-long session held by ex-FBI agent John Guandolo in San Angelo earlier this
month called "Understanding the Jihadi Threat to America." Law enforcement officers in Texas must undergo 40 hours
of continuing education training every two years. "Upon review of the recording of the seminar, the Commission shares
some of the concerns that we have received from members of the public that the material paints an entire religion with an
overly broad brush," wrote TCOLE Executive Director Kim Vickers.
UK: A New Drive for Islamic
Blasphemy Laws? It is reasonable to assume that the planned report and the ensuing work on finding a definition
of "Islamophobia" is meant effectively to destroy the little that remains of free speech in the UK. The Anti-Muslim
Hatred Working Group has as its top priority "tackling the far right and counter jihadists". It seems a peculiar
government priority to "tackle" people who are opposed to jihad; one would assume that the British government is also against
jihad. According to British government logic, then, after Muslims stabbed and beheaded British Army soldier Lee Rigby
in broad daylight in London, Muslim institutions needed protection — not British ones.
Robinson and Our Free Speech Rights. On Friday, May 25, human rights activist Tommy Robinson was
arrested. Robinson has been bringing attention to the cover-up of one of the worst scandals in British history: the
organized seduction, addicting, rape, and trafficking of young English girls by so-called "grooming" gangs, primarily
Muslim. The abuse was not confined to prostituting these children (under age 16); they included instances of horrific
physical abuse as well. In some cases these girls were doused with gasoline while their tormentors danced around them
with cigarette-lighters, threatening to immolate them; in others, a girl's tongue would be nailed to a table. These
girls have been devastated. When fathers or brothers attempted to rescue them, the police arrested the family member
instead, calling the abuse "consensual." This is what Robinson has been revealing: institutionalized child abuse in
his own country on a massive scale, with the cooperation of government. A working-class man, Robinson's accent belies the
seriousness and propriety of his position. He opposes sharia, he stands up for returning British soldiers and for free
speech, and he abhors abuse of women and children. He doesn't quote philosophers, but he speaks from the heart and from
a considerable intellect.
Robinson Drew Attention to "Grooming Gangs." Britain Has Persecuted Him. Tommy Robinson is a British
political activist and "citizen journalist" who came to prominence in Britain almost a decade ago when he founded the English
Defence League. The EDL was a street-protest movement in Britain whose aims could probably best be summarized as
"anti-Islamization." It emerged in the town of Luton after a group of local Islamists barracked the homecoming parade of
a local regiment returning from service in Afghanistan. From their earliest protests the EDL's members sought to
highlight issues including sharia law, Islam's attitudes toward minorities, and the phenomenon that would become
euphemistically known as "grooming gangs." In reality these protests often descended into hooliganism and low-level
violence (naturally helped along by self-described "anti-fascists"). The authorities did everything they could to stop
the EDL, and the media did everything possible to demonize them.
Suicide of Europe. [Scroll down] It turns out that Robinson was given a suspended sentence last year for
filming outside another court building, where a trial for alleged gang rape by radical Muslims was taking place. He
wasn't inside the courtroom. Nonetheless, the judge believed he was somehow biasing the jurors. According to the
judge, Robinson was sentenced thanks to "pejorative language which prejudges the case, and it is language and reporting ...
that could have had the effect of substantially derailing the trial." This time, Robinson was again arrested for
prejudicing a case, only he wasn't inside the court building. He was outside. And the media were originally
banned from reporting on his arrest so that his trial wouldn't be biased. In other words, Britain has now
effectively banned reporting that actually mentions the Islamic nature of criminal defendants for fear of stirring up
bigotry — and has banned reporting on reporting on such defendants. It's an infinite regress of suicidal
Establishment Closes Ranks Against Tommy Robinson. The case is strange indeed: Robinson was live-streaming
on Facebook from the street in front of a courthouse in Leeds where a number of defendants were on trial for rape.
Reportedly, he was reading the names of the defendants and the crimes with which they were charged. That was enough
to bring out the paddy wagon. Police officers descended on Robinson, arrested him on "suspicion of breaching the peace,"
and hauled him off to court. Within a matter of hours he had been imprisoned for contempt of court. Not only that,
the court issued an order barring all UK press outlets from reporting on Robinson's arrest and imprisonment.
British Media: Lockstep
Lies. Hundreds of supporters of Tommy Robinson filled the streets of London on Saturday [5/26/2018] in protest
against his arrest in Leeds on Friday, but it was not until shortly after midnight on Monday that the Daily Mail
posted a report about the protest on its website. The story, which was unsigned, was updated on early Monday afternoon.
How to explain the delay? Did the Daily Mail's lawyers have to check with the British government, which had placed a gag
order on reporting about the arrest, to make sure that it was permissible to report on the protest, if not directly on the arrest
itself? The Mail made sure to describe the hundreds of protesters as "far-right." How did the Mail ascertain their
politics? Does it not occur to the Mail that even if Robinson were far-right, which he is not, a British subject would not
have to be far right to want to take in a protest against his shockingly rapid-fire arrest, trial, conviction, and imprisonment for the
sole offense of reporting from outside a courthouse?
Beginning Of The End Of British Justice. Britain, once the champion of the rule of law and due process no
longer is, and it's official. Tommy Robinson is a well known journalist and activist who opposes the Islamization of
the UK. Yesterday, he was video taping and adding commentary outside the courtroom where one of the three trials is being
held for the Muslim sex grooming gangs who raped and forced over a thousand girls into prostitution. This is something
the authorities were fully aware of but only chose to take action against when coverage of what was going on finally shamed
them into it.
moves from Orwell to Kafka, imprisoning Tommy Robinson and gagging media reports. Is Britain lost to the ranks
of free nations? The land that bequeathed the world the Magna Carta and the "mother of parliaments" is indulging in
totalitarianism with its handling of Tommy Robinson, a famous political activist agitating about the threat of radical Islam,
and attempting to report on the trial of a Muslim "grooming gang" that allegedly preyed on young English girls, forcing them
Robinson will be the UK's tipping point. If the government were at all smart and strategic, they would hire
Tommy Robinson as an adviser on terrorism. He has consistently identified extremists, because he grew up among them in
Luton. He has consistently told us the names of the mosques that are churning out radicals, as well as naming the
imams. He has been right time after time, and instead of hiring Tommy (whose information could contribute to keeping us
all safe), our government bent down to the MCB and MEND, both of whom have ties to extremists. All of this is okay with
our government, because these Muslim organisations bring with them the Muslim voting bloc, and so the parliamentary doors are
flung wide open to them at the same time that our liberties get thrown out the window.
is Now a Genuine Police State. There are a number of court cases taking place in Britain which are subject to
reporting restrictions. A good percentage of these — and we really don't know how many, which I think is
rather the idea — relate to Muslim gang-rape trials. Tommy was under a 13-month suspended sentence for
previously reporting on a gang-rape trial subject to reporting restrictions. In other words, if he broke the law again
he would then serve the jail time as per the initial sentence. I'm not sure if the trial he was reporting on when he
was arrested was yet another "reporting restriction" case, but if it was (which I think it was) the police have a duty to
issue a warning before taking action if the warning was ignored. Again, I am unsure as to what happened here. But
the police made no mention of reporting restrictions or contempt of court; they arrested him for "breaching the peace" which
would seem to be a total fabrication and therefore unlawful. His immediate hearing and sentencing suggests this was a
planned action by the police (and our lovely government) in order to shut him down.
UK: You're Not Allowed
to Talk about It. About What? Don't Ask.. On Friday [5/25/2018], British free-speech activist and
Islam critic Tommy Robinson was acting as a responsible citizen journalist — reporting live on camera from outside
a Leeds courtroom where several Muslims were being tried for child rape — when he was set upon by several police
officers. In the space of the next few hours, a judge tried, convicted, and sentenced him to 13 months in
jail — and also issued a gag order, demanding a total news blackout on the case in the British news media.
Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, was immediately taken to Hull Prison. Most media outlets were
remarkably compliant. News stories that had already been posted online after Robinson's arrest at the Scottish Daily
Record, Birmingham Live, The Mirror, RT, and Breitbart News were promptly pulled down,
although, curiously, a report remained up at the Independent, a left-wing broadsheet that can be counted on to view
Robinson as a hooligan.
of Tommy Robinson, and UK's frightening media gag order. Over the weekend the UK, and the social media
connected world, witnessed the stunning arrest of Tommy Robinson for "breaching the peace" outside a Leeds court during an
explosive grooming gang trial. Robinson showed the accused men entering Leeds Crown Court in a livestream on Facebook,
where he was "reporting" on the grooming gang case. After more than an hour of broadcasting, footage showed police
officers approaching to arrest him for alleged breach of the peace and "incitement" of court. Robinson was under a
suspended sentence for committing contempt of court over a similar gang rape case in Canterbury last year. [...] Fox News
reported that UK officials placed an unprecedented gag order on media to vainly keep the disappearance of Tommy Robinson
hidden from the public. Robinson's lawyer warned that, considering the presence of Muslim gang members in prison, a
13-month sentence was tantamount to a death sentence.
At last, a speedy
police response. The founder of the English Defence League, Tommy Robinson, turned up in Leeds on Thursday
[5/24/2018] to film people going into a grooming trial. He did not speak, chant, accost anyone or do anything other
than point his mobile phone at attendees, from a distance. Nor was he with a crowd. Still, seven coppers turned
up and bundled him into a paddy-wagon accusing him of a breach of the peace. I'm not remotely a fan of Robinson.
But I do not like the idea that simply being Robinson is enough to get you arrested.
mass at the gates of Downing Street to demand EDL founder Tommy Robinson is released. Hundreds of Tommy
Robinson supporters flocked to Downing Street on Saturday to demand the release of the far-right leader. Robinson, 35,
was arrested on suspicion of breaching the peace on Friday after he was seen filming outside a court house. It has
caused a furious backlash among his supporters who stormed Whitehall on Saturday to stage a protest.

cadets kicked out of Canadian Forces after desecrating Qur'an with bacon and bodily fluid. Certainly at least
one of them is guilty of a disgusting and obnoxious act. If that is enough to get one kicked out of the Canadian
Forces, so be it. If, however, they are being kicked out for the crime of desecrating the Qur'an, then Canada is
enforcing Sharia blasphemy law. That would not be surprising coming from the Trudeau government with its
"anti-Islamophobia" motion M-103, but it still threatens the freedom of speech that is the foundation of any free
society. If Canadians are no longer free to dislike Islam and have contempt for the Qur'an, they are no longer
free. Would these cadets have been kicked out for desecrating a Bible?
MEP says Tommy Robinson arrest "politically motivated" amid massive protest in London over his arrest. This
case is much bigger than Tommy Robinson. Whatever one may think of him and his work, style, or approach, he is being
harassed and persecuted by the British government for calling attention to the activity of Muslim rape gangs, which British
authorities have done everything they could to cover up, and to jihad violence and Sharia oppression in general. Yes,
he was arrested for violating the terms of his probation by filming outside a courthouse where a Muslim rape gang was being
tried, but the prohibition on him doing that was wrong in the first place. Clearly he was arrested, rather than simply
given a warning as Janice Atkinson says in this video, because of who he is and what he does: his arrest was of a piece with the
government's desire to keep people ignorant and complacent regarding Muslim rape gangs and the high cost of mass Muslim migration.
An uprising is happening now.
Tommy Robinson, an outspoken critic of the UK's anti-free speech laws has been arrested and locked up for 13 months —

Anarcho-Tyranny in the
UK. Disturbing news has come to light from the United Kingdom this morning, courtesy of author and journalist
Lauren Southern, and of Cassandra Fairbanks at Gateway Pundit. Apparently, after being arrested while live on film, for
nothing more than covering a trial of suspected participants in a rape grooming gang, the controversial anti-Islam activist
Tommy Robinson has been sentenced to 13 months in prison. A prison, coincidentally, that is likely to be filled with
Muslim criminals who will make it a point to kill Robinson.
Enraged by ROTC Exercise Featuring Jihadis as Enemies. A ridiculous article last Thursday in UCLA's student
newspaper, The Daily Bruin, reveals the mindset of those who believe that "Islamophobia" is a bigger threat than jihad
terror, and reveals yet again the insidious agenda of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). "It takes a lot
of work to marginalize 3.5 million Americans at once," writes the article's author, Omar Said, "but the ROTC did just that
when it stereotyped Muslims to portray enemy combatants." Who are American troops facing in Afghanistan? Methodists?
Man faces "hate speech" charges for satirizing Sharia punishments. "Hate speech" is not an objectively identifiable
category. Any criticism of anyone or anything could be characterized as inciting hatred against the object of the
criticism. The "hate speech" classification, as I have often pointed out, is simply a tool of the powerful to silence
the powerless. These satirical children's book covers focus upon matters of genuine concern: Sharia stonings and
lashings, both of which take place today. But to point them out is "hate speech," because the Swedish government
wants to keep its people ignorant and complacent in the face of the Muslim migrant inundation.

everyone knows which religion is meant. No one is going to go to prison for criticizing Christianity or Judaism.
This is more of Britain's gallop toward Sharia and ruin.
Muslim Sues Boss For Telling
Her 'No Hijab,' Judge Gives Her Nasty Surprise. Samira Achbita wasn't always an elitist who believes that the
majority should cater to her every religious whim. In fact, for over three years in her employment as a receptionist at
G4S British security firm located in Belgium, she never once had a problem with the company's dress code and policy for a
neutral environment. As soon as she converted to Islam, however, she demanded that her employer grant her special
privilege by exempting only her from their business code.
Inadvertently Call For a Ban On Islam. The very same logic that Muslims cite in their ongoing efforts to criminalize
anti-Islamic speech in Western nations would require the criminalization of Islam itself. Secretary-General of the Muslim World
League Mohammed al-Issa argues that "Europe must do more to ... criminalize religious hate speech." In an April 9 interview
with Reuters, this prominent Saudi said: "We believe that European countries, where there is much debate now, and other countries
around the world ... need to ... criminalize hatred and contempt for adherents of religions because this threatens the safety of the
community." The "hatred and contempt for adherents of religions" that Muslims complain of is ecumenical code for "Islamophobia."
"Everyone Was Afraid
to Be Branded as a Racist". Mona Walter, age 45, is a Swedish activist from Mogadishu, Somalia. In the
early 1990s, she fled as a refugee to Sweden. There, she abandoned Islam and converted to Christianity. The act
resulted in criticism and death threats. The mainstream media consider her a person working for religious
freedom. Other organizations accuse her of fueling anti-Islamic movements.
Threatens to Arrest Reporter Exposing Islamic Event feat Extremist Imam. On Saturday, the Greenwood Lakes
Middle School in coordination with Muslim community groups in Orlando hosted a Syrian sheik who has called for the killing of
gays and all Jews. Conservative journalist Laura Loomer drove to Orlando to report on the event, which was described on
the flyer as being open to the public. Besides being a public event, the event was hosted at a taxpayer-funded Florida
middle school, which gives any member of the public and the press the right to come on the property. When Loomer
approached the table to enter the event, organizers and an official from CAIR refused to admit Loomer and her cameraman into
the event, and they were threatened with arrest by officers from the Seminole County Sheriff's Office.
settles third lawsuit over surveillance of Muslims. The New York City Police Department has agreed to develop
new policies and training materials for its Intelligence Bureau with input from Muslims and pay out more than $1 million in
damages and legal fees to settle a lawsuit over its surveillance of Muslims in the decade following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
The case, Hassan v. City of New York, filed six years ago, was the first of three federal lawsuits spurred by the Associated
Press's Pulitzer Prize-winning reporting in 2011 that exposed the NYPD's secret mapping and monitoring of Muslim
communities — including mosques, schools, restaurants and bookstores in and around New York City —
on the basis of ethnicity and religion, and often in the absence of any meaningful suspicion.

Monday in Brooklyn federal court stemming from the NYPD policy of photographing people wearing religious head coverings, the
New York Daily News reported. The three women settled for $60,000 each. Some cases date to 2012, when a high

Was Paid Nearly $2,250,000 For Fake Abuse Claims Against Troops In Iraq. British authorities, primed with
endless victimhood posturing by Muslims in Britain, were ready and willing to see British troops in Iraq as abusive, racist,
"Islamophobic" louts, and eager to pay for such stories. This is why we see so many "anti-Muslim hate crimes" faked by
Muslims in the U.S. and the West in general: becoming a victim brings one laudatory press attention, and in many cases
money and special favors. "It was a racket, all of it" indeed.
Checking the New Islamophobia Inflation Hoax Report. Yasmin Seweid, a Muslim college student, claimed that
Trump supporters had tried to tear off her hijab on the New York City subway and shouted, "Look it's a f______ terrorist" and
"Go back to your country". "The president-elect just promotes this stuff and is very anti-Muslim, very Islamophobic, and
he's just condoning it," she complained. It was all a lie. Yasmin was charged with filing a false police report
on December 2016. On September 2017, she pleaded guilty to falsely reporting an incident and disorderly conduct.
An Islamophobia hoax doesn't get any more discredited than the Seweid case. But Islamophobia hoaxes never die.

Islamophobia Hoaxes Are Not Rare. Liberal politicians, university administrators, and the mainstream media are

All but one of the fires were set in trash cans inside bathrooms. Hassan kindly explained that she did so in retaliation
for American military intervention in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to the criminal complaint failed in Ramsey County District

Prosecuting Man For Anti-Muslim Insults. Here in the United States of America, the California Attorney General
is actually prosecuting a man for Internet insults.
Spencer On The 'Islamophobia' Lie. [Scroll down] Now you contrast that to the Stanford students who stood
up and walked out the other day. These are all people who were born in the United States, probably mostly, born around
what, now, 1995 or 1998 or something? So they've missed everything, and they grew up in this affluent society, and
they're told that the West is a terrible oppressor, that the United States is based on racism and hatred and oppression, and
that they have to stand with the marginalized people of the world, and that the Muslims are among the marginalized people of
the world, and so to speak critically about Islamic terrorism is a terrible thing that further marginalizes the Muslims of
the world, and therefore, they have to stand against it. Now, this is not reality. This is just plain fantasy.
People talk about Islamophobia and, actually, in reality, if you look at FBI hate crimes statistics, the hate crimes that are
committed against Muslims are far less common than hate crimes against Jews, hate crimes against Blacks.
Bacon at a Mosque Gets You 15 Years for 'Hate Crime.' This Is Sharia in America. In reality, the FBI's latest
Hate Crime report proves that there is no anti-Muslim backlash. But Michael Wolfe, the mosque vandal, got 15 years in
prison and another 15 years of probation, to be served after his prison sentence, for leaving bacon on the doorstep of a
mosque and breaking a few windows. Have you ever heard of such a thing in America? [...] Anti-Jewish crimes are four times
that of "anti-Muslim" crimes, and you never heard of such convictions.
at Catholic School Grouse About Christmas Decorations. It turns out Muslims in the USA really are oppressed
after all. How would you like to come over from the Middle East and attend an explicitly Catholic school like Loyola
University Chicago, only to discover that Christmas is treated as if it were somehow a bigger deal than Islamic holidays,
despite 5% of the students being Muslim? Sajedah Al-khzaleh grouses in the student paper that "there is a lack of
public festivity compared to Christmas." Sajid Ahmed, prayer coordinator for the terrorism-associated Muslim Students
Association, says he "wishes Muslim holidays were just as prominent."
Of Alleged Port Authority Terrorist 'Outraged' Over Police Behavior. The family of Akayed Ullah, the suspect
behind Monday morning's failed suicide bombing at the New York City Port Authority Bus Terminal, expressed "outrage" by the
actions of law enforcement. "We are heartbroken by the violence that was targeted at our city today, and by the
allegations being made against a member of our family," Albert Fox Cahn, the legal director for CAIR New York, stated on
behalf of the Ullah family, WABC reported Monday. "But we are also outraged by the behavior of law enforcement
officials who have held children as small as four years old out in the cold and who held a teenager out of high school
classes to interrogate him without a lawyer, without his parents," the family said.
of Port Authority bombing suspect is 'outraged' at investigators' tactics. The family of the alleged
ISIS-inspired Port Authority bomber said they were "heartbroken" by the attack on Monday and blasted law enforcement agencies
for what they claimed were heavy-handed tactics by investigators. "We are heartbroken by the violence that was targeted
at our city today and by the allegations being made against a member of our family," said the statement read by Albert Fox
Cahn, the Legal Director for the NY Chapter Council for Islamic Relations. "But we're also outraged by the behavior of
the law enforcement officials who held children as small as 4 years old out in the cold and who pulled a teenager out
of high school classes to interrogate him without lawyer, without his parents."

Hysterical Reactions to Trump's Jerusalem Announcement. It's safe to say that people around the world are very excited by President
Donald Trump's decision to formally recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and begin the process of moving the American embassy there.
Here are some of the most excitable folks and their reactions to the announcement: [...]
The Red Cross yields to pressure from the Muslims:
Cross Demands Branches Remove Crucifixes to Be More Secular. Volunteers have criticised the Red Cross charity after
receiving a communication telling them to remove crucifixes from the walls of their branches as the organisation looks to become more
secular. The Belgian branches of the international aid organisation received an email from the Provincial Committee of the
Red Cross in Liège to remove all crucifixes. [...] Several volunteers spoke to Belgian broadcaster RTL and expressed hostility
to the move, with one saying: "Let things remain as they are. We used to say 'Christmas holidays', now it's 'winter
holidays'. The Christmas market in Brussels has become the 'Winter Pleasures'." "For a certain part of the
population — because of the Muslims — the crosses were removed in the Red Cross houses and, more
particularly, in that of Verviers," the volunteer added.
Department Store under fire for refusing to hire a Muslim woman who wears an Islamic supremacist headbag. No
surprise, as always, it is designated terrorist group CAIR that has filed a complaint. Somebody needs to tell these
litigation jihadists that a retail store is permitted to have a dress code, and it is not discrimination not to hire someone
who breaks it.
Latest Cause: Refusing to Stand for the Anthem in the Name of Islam. [Scroll down] That's right —
the ACLU is now arguing that Islam prohibits its adherents from observing the national anthem. Never mind that thousands of
American Muslim athletes have stood, hands over hearts, for the Star Spangled Banner for decades. And thousands of Muslim
athletes from other countries have observed their national anthems at the Olympics for more than a century. For the ACLU,
it's a perfect case — they get to fight against the Star Spangled Banner and fight for Islam. Perfect, that is,
except for the fact that the ACLU's claims are nonsense. Is the ACLU really arguing that Samir was "motivated by his religious
beliefs" to leave his teammates and shoot baskets on the court? Since when is shooting hoops part of expressing one's Muslim faith?
Lets Muslims Decide If It's a Hate Crime. Instead of having to determine the perpetrator's motive, the "victim"
will be allowed to decide if a hate crime occured. Or any random third party. Based on the supposed motive of the
perpetrator. This isn't how criminal justice in any society that believes in basic standards of jurisprudence
works. But while the left gives violent criminals a pass, in some areas it rigs the system so tightly that it's
effectively a police state with no possibility of innocence for the accused.
College doesn't want police using campus bathrooms. Brooklyn College is kowtowing to cop-hating students by
directing officers who need a bathroom break to the broken-down facilities in a building on the far edge of campus.
Amid a planned petition drive to ban cops from the taxpayer-funded campus, Donald Wenz, the school's director of public
safety, told the student newspaper The Excelsior that he's trying to keep New York's Finest out of sight. [...] Student-body
President Nissim Said blamed the sentiments on an NYPD operation that sent an undercover cop to infiltrate the school's
Muslim community in search of Islamic terrorists. The same female cop helped the feds in 2015 nab two Queens
women — Noelle Velentzas and Asia Siddiqui — who are awaiting trial on charges they stockpiled
tanks of propane gas for an ISIS-inspired attack on the Big Apple.
Post Says Fake Hate Is Rare, and Other Fairy Tales. The reality is that black victimization is the biggest hoax of our lifetimes, and fake
hate is a part of that huge liberal con game. And it is easy to see with even a cursory look at a list of recent fake hate stories that gathered
national attention. The SPLC tells so many fibs about so many fake hate crimes even they have trouble keeping track. After the election of
Donald Trump, Mark Potok and MSNBC's Chris Matthews were talking about the millions — or was it billions? — of hate crimes that Trump
supporters were creating all over the universe when they settled on one particularly egregious example of a Moslem woman in New York whose hijab was
torn from her sainted head. Trump supporters did it, of course, all the while threatening even more violence. It never happened. Even the
New York Times figured that out a few months before. But that hardly mattered to Potok and Matthews.
Jihadism's E-Z Pass to New York. After Tuesday's
[10/31/2017] terrorist attack, the useless pols of New York quickly assembled before the cameras to recite the usual litany of politically correct
talking points. Looking like a lost giraffe, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio stepped up to the microphone and said that "the last thing we should
do is start casting dispersions" on Islam. That moment of illiteracy was then followed by a burst of illogic, as he argued that the proper response
to Islamic terrorism in a tolerant country is even more tolerance. "Anyone who wants to come into this country should be very thoroughly vetted as
an individual," he said. "But the minute you start generalizing it, especially to a whole religion, then unfortunately we're sending the exact
negative message that a lot of our enemies want and the terrorists wants to affirm — that this nation is somehow anti-Muslim. We've got to do
the exact opposite. We've got to show we respect all people in America." In other words, let's prioritize political correctness over safety and
propaganda over truth.
Judge tosses Muslim's (frivolous) $100M lawsuit against Little Caesars. A Wayne County judge today tossed out a
lawsuit filed against Little Caesars Pizza alleging that pork was sold as "halal pepperoni" at one of its Dearborn locations,
according to court documents provided by an attorney for the pizza company. Michael Huget, an attorney representing
Little Caesars Pizza, said that Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Susan Hubbard granted the pizza chain a summary
disposition — or a motion to dismiss via the court rather than by a jury — in a case brought against
the pizza company by Dearborn resident Mohamad Bazzi in May. A second lawsuit involving different plaintiffs making the
same allegations was allowed to proceed.
defendant says of 2014 attack: "I knew for sure that ... if I was to die right then ... I was going to heaven.". In
confessions played for a jury Wednesday, murder defendant Alton Alexander Nolen said in 2014 that he beheaded a co-worker and tried to
behead another at a Moore food plant because he felt oppressed. Nolen, a Muslim convert, insisted in the interviews with Moore
police and the FBI that he was following Islamic teachings. "I just feel like ... I did what I needed to do. What
Allah ... says in the Quran to do," he said. "Oppressors don't need to be here."
college student who lied about Trump supporter subway attack pleads guilty. The Muslim college student who lied to cops about getting
attacked on the subway by drunken Trump supporters took a plea deal on Friday [9/8/2017]. Yasmin Seweid, 19, copped to falsely reporting an
incident and disorderly conduct for the bogus claim. Seweid, of New Hyde Park, L.I., said hate-filled white men harassed her and tried to
snatch the hijab off her head during an encounter on the No. 6 train on Dec. 1. Seweid previously admitted she wasted police
resources to cover up for her missed curfew.
Suing KFC for Serving Bacon. A Muslim couple from Dearborn is suing Kentucky Fried Chicken for having recently
been served bacon on a chicken sandwiches. An unspecified amount of damages are being sought by the couple, who
purchased the sandwiches at a Lincoln Park KFC. They allege cheese and bacon were added to the sandwiches after they
requested cheese only, according to a Detroit Free Press report. In May, a Dearborn man of Muslim faith sued Little
Caesars for $100 million after he was allegedly served and then accidentally ate pepperoni made with pork, a food
prohibited by Islamic law. The boxes were labeled "halal," but the pies inside were topped with regular pepperoni.
Man sentenced for eating bacon in front of Muslims. A 53-year-old man from Stockholm has been convicted of
offensive behaviour, as he among other things ate bacon in front of three women in hijab on a commuter train. It was
on a commuter train in Stockholm, that the man began to eat bacon in front of three veiled women, reports marsta.nu.
According to the prosecution, the man demonstrative began to chew the pork in front of the women, and then followed them
when they changed seats. The whole thing lasted a few minutes.
gets $85,000 after hijab removed for mugshot. The city of Long Beach will pay $85,000 to settle a 2016 federal
lawsuit filed by a Muslim woman after an officer forcibly removed her hijab, or headscarf, when she was in police
custody. The incident started when Kirsty Powell and her husband were pulled over by police for driving a "low rider"
car, according to the lawsuit. Powell was the passenger, but was arrested after police found a warrant under her name
for a shoplifting incident.
woman granted $85G after suing California police for removing her hijab. A Muslim woman was awarded $85,000 by the city of Long
Beach Tuesday [8/8/2017] after she sued the city's police for removing her hijab against her will during an arrest in May 2015. Kirsty
Powell, an African-American Muslim, filed the lawsuit in 2016, causing the Long Beach Police Department to change its policy regarding inmates
wearing head scarves due to their religion, according to The Los Angeles Times. Police originally banned inmates from wearing head scarves.
Blamed Islamophobia, Then Her Husband was Arrested for Weapons Smuggling. In April, the Los Angeles
Times ran an op-ed complaining that Muslims were being singled out in airports. "Does the 4th Amendment apply to
Muslim citizens at LAX?" Lubana Adi, its author, fumed. Adi, a Syrian, told a sob story about visiting her "aged
mother" and two brothers who were refugees in Turkey. Then airport security "groped" under her Hijab and demanded that
she empty her purse. [...] The Los Angeles Times felt that the story was so important that it needed to be referenced
in future pieces as an example of the abuses that Muslims face in this country. It was a shocking Islamophobic
outrage. But now the Times is telling another story.
Muslims" wage legal jihad after quitting jobs over lack of sharia accommodations. Sixteen Muslims "involuntary
resigned" from their jobs at an automotive supplier in Warren because the company refused to accommodate their planned
religious observance, their attorneys said Wednesday [7/26/2017]. The ex-employees of Brose Jefferson, who worked the
afternoon shift, had requested they be allowed to take their unpaid, 30-minute meal break at 9 p.m. instead of the usual
7 p.m., during Ramadan. During Ramadan, which was celebrated worldwide from May 27 to June 25, Muslims
observe strict fasting from sunrise to sunset.
"Racist" Christian Sign Taken Down. In the last year in the town of Hood River, Oregeon, a church's reader
board has been vandalized multiple times. The reason for the vandalism? The board is racist because it promotes
Christian messages. These reader boards are seen all over, usually giving the service times and a shortened passage of
scripture. In May of last year, a peaceful protest outside of the Belmont Drive Missionary Baptist Church turned more
violent, as the protesters started to vandalize and destroy church property. The reader sign was changed with its
letters broken and stolen.
Republicans Push Anti-Free Speech Bill Written By Islamic Terror-Linked Groups. The United States already has
strict laws on the books that protect against hate crimes, so one reasonably asks, "why do we need this new resolution?"
Yes, this particular legislation is merely a "resolution" or a formal statement by a legislative body, but might the continued
discussion of this matter really seek to prepare us to slowly move toward the next step in the process and expand the concept
of what actually constitutes a "hate crime," — perhaps to include speech that some may find offensive? In fact,
its bent is quite the opposite and could end up landing you in federal court for espousing a politically incorrect opinion.
Leader Says Muslims Are the New Jews, Warns of Coming 'Holocaust'. On Sunday [7/23/2017], an Islamist leader in
Australia compared the plight of Muslims in the West today to that of Jews in Germany leading up to the Holocaust. He
suggested that Muslims face the same fear and hatred that led Adolf Hitler to try to exterminate the Jews, and warned that a
similar evil might be employed against Muslims in the near future.
Islamophobia Industry Killed Justine Damond. It is a cherished fiction on the Left that there exists an
"Islamophobia Industry," a well-funded group of propagandists who spread hatred of Muslims solely to line their
pockets. This is as ridiculous as it is libelous, but there really is an Islamophobia Industry, and it is a group of
well-funded propagandists. In reality, however, it is not in the business of spreading "anti-Muslim bigotry." Instead,
it propagates the idea that Muslims in the U.S. are the recipients of widespread discrimination and harassment, and so must
be accorded special accommodation and consideration. That idea has just taken the life of Justine Ruszczyk Damond.
leader upset with rhetoric in wake of Minneapolis shooting. Amid the calls for justice for the Australian woman
killed by a Minneapolis police officer, a Somali leader in the community claims there also has been racist blowback against
their community. "We have a tragedy at hand, and we have a community that's frightened. That's what I want to
highlight and that's the reason we're here," said Minneapolis City Councilman Abdi Warsame.
hate call to a mosque? Or another hate hoax staged by Muslims to get sympathy from the media? You decide. [Video clip]
Minneapolis officer in police shooting is named, Somali community braces for backlash. When Mohamed Noor joined
the Minneapolis police force and was assigned to patrol the city's southwest corner, the Somali community there —
the nation's largest — threw a party for him to celebrate. He was the first Somali American officer to serve
in Minneapolis's fifth precinct and one of fewer than a dozen Somali American officers in the department. His presence
on the squad brought Somali activists some pride and reassurance at a time of Islamophobia in America and nationwide racial
tension stoked in part by shootings of black people by white police officers. Now that same Somali community is bracing
for a backlash against Noor that has already begun.
U.S. Trying to Criminalize Free
Speech - Again. The law already prohibits violence and threats of violence, and law enforcement authorities are supposed to
prosecute those — intimidation, destruction, damage, vandalism, simple and aggravated assault. What do "strategies and
efforts to detect and deter hate crime" entail, and again, what "hate crimes" are not already covered by the law? In other words,
why would the House of Representatives find it necessary to make such redundant statements, if not in order to redefine the concept of
a hate crime? Perhaps by including "hate speech"?
Dick Durbin Claims Muslims In America Feel Like They're Headed to WWII 'Internment Camps'. Democrats seem
incapable of processing the memo that the nation is not on the same page as they are on a range of issues. And, no
matter how many times the American public attempts to alert Democrats that their leftward trajectory is of no interest,
Democrats just keep doubling down. The Party continues to elevate its fringe members like Maxine Waters and Elizabeth
Warren while supposedly more "mainstream" establishment members boil over with rage and hysteria over President Trump's every single
move. Case in point: Sen. Dick Durbin claimed Wednesday [7/12/2017] Muslims in Americans feel no different than
Japanese Americans did during WWII. Of course that's because Trump is apparently building internment camps this very moment.
Investigate Jesus Painting as a 'Hate Crime'. On Friday [7/7/2017], a painting of Jesus Christ hanging on the cross was
left on a fence outside the Hillside Islamic Center in Long Island, New York. Now, the Nassau County Police Dept. is investigating
the incident as a "hate crime." "A worker there had found this large painting of Christ on a cross on the property," reported an
anchor for NBC 4. "The anti-Muslim message was found hanging from a fence, deemed to be so obviously because it was a mosque."
Sarsour: Muslim immigrants must not "assimilate". The news is not surprising, so I'm bringing this
Breitbart article by Neil Munro to your attention so I can once again mention the words "assimilate" and "integrate" in the
Left/Open Borders agitators' lexicon. Linda Sarsour is the American-born daughter of Palestinian immigrant parents
according to wikipedia and she is making news almost on a daily basis as she champions the cause of Islam in the age of Trump.
Sarsour Calls For 'Jihad' Against American Government. In a largely self-congratulatory speech to the Annual Islamic Society of
North American (ISNA) this past weekend, Palestinian-American activist Linda Sarsour called for the "best form" of jihad against the current
American administration. "A word of truth in front of a tyrant ruler or leader, that is the best form of jihad," Sarsour declared.
"And I hope that we, when we stand up to those who oppress our communities, that Allah accepts from us that as a form of jihad. That we
are struggling against tyrants and rulers, not only abroad in the Middle East or on the other side of the world, but here, in these United
States of America, where you have fascists, and white supremacists, and Islamophobes reigning in the White House."
Claims Hijab Discrimination While Shopping. A human-rights activist is speaking out this week about the anti-Muslim
discrimination she says she experienced while shopping, when a sales associate insisting on making subtle jabs against her hijab.
"Discrimination against Muslims, request for help," Nadia Alawa, of Boston, wrote in a lengthy July 3rd Facebook post describing
the recent incident. Earlier that day, she explained, she had been browsing at the White House Black Market, a popular women's
chain store, in Lynnfield, Mass. She was dressed, she says, "in my usual Muslim American clothing, which includes a hijab,"
when a store manager approached her "with a smug smile" to ask how she was doing.
The Editor says...
Subtle jabs ad smug smiles do not amount to anything. Every retail shopper in the world gets worse treatment
than that, sooner or later.
Fighters Return To Europe, Complain About Job Rejections. More and more foreign Islamic State fighters are
returning to European countries that want nothing to do with them. Swedish daily Expressen interviewed some of the 150
terrorists who have moved back to Sweden after fighting for ISIS. Many of them have changed their legal names to be able
to rejoin society, but few are able to get jobs. "I just want to forget everything," a 27-year-old man formerly known
as Walad Yousef told Expressen. "I apply for a lot of jobs, but I can't get any because my pictures are out there."
Incomplete Media Narrative about a Murdered Muslim Girl. "Muslim Teen Kidnapped and Brutally Murdered in
Virginia: This Is Terrorism" read a headline from Affinity magazine. Actress and producer Mindy Kaling
also decried the murder on Facebook as "another innocent Muslim person targeted for their faith." The Atlantic
then ran a profile, "'Muslims Feel Under Siege'" highlighting Islamophobia around Ramadan. Many stories used Hassanen's
murder as a lede to foray into a greater narrative about the collective crisis of violence against Muslims. But then
actual facts and details around the case emerged. First, the Fairfax County Police Department publicly ruled out a hate
crime as a motive, announcing that they were looking more closely into extreme road rage. Then, the Daily Caller
reported that the murderer, Darwin Martinez Torres, was an illegal immigrant from El Salvador, with ICE confirming that it
had issued a detainer request against him. Reports subsequently emerged that Torres, who has a girlfriend and son,
barely speaks English and required the use of a translator following his arrest.
Muslim still blames Trump for "racism" after Pulse nightclub shooting. While most college graduates are
settling in for the summer and basking in their recent accomplishments with family and friends, one newly-minted graduate is
blaming President Trump for anti-Muslim sentiment one year following the terrorist attack in Pulse nightclub in
Orlando. In a New York Times opinion piece, "A night of terror, a year of racism," Adam Manno — a gay
American man whose father is from Pakistan — says Trump's language is scaring American Muslims because it
supposedly fosters Islamophobia among the general population.
give out 1,000's of roses in London, as if that could wipe away the threat of ever-increasing Islamic terrorist attacks in
Britain. British dhimmi women eat this [foolishness] up, spewing the lie that "love will overcome hate," as if
Muslims will ever stop hating the cursed unbelievers. [Video clip]
Groups Unhappy With Indianapolis 'Perfect Man' Billboard. A billboard in Indianapolis, IN is stirring
controversy among local Muslim groups, says a Fox 59 report. The billboard, seen going southbound I-465 near the
Washington Street exit mocks the prophet Mohammed as "The Perfect Man." The billboard then lists six bullet points about
Mohammed to describe him. The points include: "Married a 6-year-old," "Slave owner & dealer," "rapist," "Beheaded
600 Jews in one day," "13 wives, 11 at one time" and "Tortured & killed unbelievers."
Muslims call out creators of local billboard that insults Prophet Muhammad. An anti-Muslim billboard
disparaging the Prophet Muhammad that can be seen from the southbound lanes of I-465 on the east side is drawing concern from
local Muslims. [...] The all black billboard has a headline of "The Perfect Man." Underneath are six bullet points to
describe that man. These points include "married a 6-year-old," "slave owner & dealer" and "13 wives, 11 at one time."
At the bottom of the billboard in yellow sits the words "Educate Truthophobes." A search of Truthophobes online leads to multiple
anti-Muslim groups, specifically an Australian group with similar messaging.
The Editor says...
Weekly terrorist attacks don't seem to "draw concern from local Muslims," but any publication of Muhammad's well-known sins will instantly
produce outrage about "islamophobia."
Little Caesars says $100M
lawsuit dropped after investigation proves it to be false. Attorney for Little Caesars said on Friday that a
lawsuit that claimed a Detroit-area Muslim man had been served pepperoni pizza instead of halal pepperoni was being
dropped. However, the man's attorneys are disputing that assertion. Little Caesars says after they were made
aware of Mohamad Bazzi's lawsuit, they looked into the matter — as the consumption of pork is strictly forbidden
under Muslim law. They say they found the allegations to be false and presented those results to Bazzi's attorney
before heading into court.
man sues Little Caesars for $100M over pork on pizza. A Muslim man is suing Little Caesars for $100 million in
Michigan, claiming he was served pepperoni made with pork, which is a food prohibited by Islamic law. CBS Detroit reports
Mohamad Bazzi says he ordered halal pizza twice from a pizza shop in Schaefer in Dearborn. He claims the boxes were labeled
"halal," but the pizzas inside were topped with regular pepperoni.
The Left's Road Leads To
Manchester. I hadn't heard of Salman Abedi before he murdered all those little girls and their friends and family members at the
Ariana Grande concert, but when I recently spoke at Truman State University in Missouri, the University at Buffalo, and Gettysburg College, and
then at an event in Iceland, I discussed the belief system that incites people such as Salman Abedi to violence. I explored the ways in
which jihad terrorists use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and make recruits among peaceful Muslims, and the texts of the
Qur'an and Islamic law that call upon Muslims to wage war against those who do not believe in Islam. For this, the three universities and
the Icelandic press treated my presence in the country as if Josef Goebbels had stopped by for a visit.
Didn't Take Long: Newsweek Already Fretting About 'Reprisals' Against Manchester Muslims. This seemingly
is the first reaction from the media whenever a Muslim fanatic slaughters innocent people. Don't concern yourselves
with the victims or the next terrorist attack. Worry instead about the backlash that never comes and so-called "Islamophobia."
French Mayor Found Guilty Of Incitement
For Saying 91% Muslim Classrooms Are a 'Problem'. Right-wing mayor Robert Menard has been found guilty of a

Another Bogus 'Anti-Muslim' Hate Crime Unravels as College Professor is Arrested. If it weren't for phony hate
crimes, would there be any hate crimes at all? This seems to be an epidemic across the nation and has become worse
since Donald Trump was elected. The media always rushes to judgment when these bogus crimes allegedly happen, then the
stories are buried once the "hate crime" unravels.
ISU prof. faked anti-Muslim threats after being told he was losing job. An assistant professor at Indiana State
University has been arrested in regards to recent emails threatening the Muslim community. ISU officials say Azhar
Hussain, an assistant professor of aviation technology at the university, was arrested on a felony charge of obstruction of
justice, and a misdemeanor charge of harassment. Hussain has also been immediately suspended from his teaching duties,
according to Provost Mike Licari.
The Greatest Threat to America Isn't
Islam — It's the Left. The left has found the great weakness of conservatives: their conscience and decency. When
someone accuses them of being racist or some other form of evil, their reflex is to apologize and appease. The more conservatives placate and
soothe, the louder the left screams racism — because it works. The cultural decay of our civilization will continue until conservatives choose
to stand up and say "enough."
Outraged Muslims to Rally Against
Amazon Over Alleged Lack of Prayer Rooms. Outraged Muslims are reportedly planning a May 1 demonstration at the Amazon headquarters in
Seattle, Washington. The company is under fire after several Muslim security guards demanded time and space to pray five times a day, while on the job.
The guards contend in a lawsuit filed this week that the subcontractor who employs them does not appropriately accommodate their faith?and retaliates against those
who speak out.
Jon Scott: If Muslim Community Doesn't Like Negative Media Portrayal, Don't 'Set Off Bombs'. Fox News'
Jon Scott talked this morning [4/16/2017] about what the Muslim community can do if they don't like the negative portrayal of

Orders U.S. Air Force to Ditch "Anti-Muslim" Counterterrorism Instructor. Under Barack Obama, the Council on American-Islamic Relations
(CAIR), a group that reportedly raises money for Hamas, wielded tremendous power and managed to bully law enforcement agencies at the local, state and
federal level to alter counterterrorism training materials deemed by the group to discriminate against Muslims. This includes getting the Federal
Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to purge antiterrorism training curricula of material determined to be "offensive" to Muslims.
Democrat Dismisses Muslim Woman's Charge Against Muslim Staffer, Citing Islamophobia. Devout Muslims who called
the police on their own relatives — who work as Democratic House IT staffers — are disgusted by
Rep. Gregory Meeks being "hesitant to believe" the charges against them, with Meeks saying the allegations may have
stemmed from Islamophobia. The New York Democrat's IT staffer Hina Alvi and her husband, Imran Awan, have been banned
from Congress by Capitol Police, suspecting them of criminal violations of network security in relation to congressional
data. Imran's brothers Abid and Jamal were also on the House payroll as IT workers and have been banned.
Muslims' agenda: Fight US proposals to ban Sharia law. Muslims complain they're frivolous bills meant to
spread fears and sow suspicion of their religion in a nation divided. But supporters of state proposals to prevent
Islamic code from being used in American courts argue they aren't overtly anti-Muslim and are needed to safeguard
constitutional rights for average Americans.
Man prosecuted for eating bacon too closely to a group of veiled Muslim women. The incident occurred in the
Swedish capital of Stockholm over the weekend. The Swedish man, who has not been named by media or the police, is said
to have approached the Muslim women who were wearing Islamic veils on a train while he was eating bacon and dangled the bacon
in front of their faces, Swedish broadcaster SVT reports. According to the report, the women got up to find seating
elsewhere and the man followed them with his bacon.
Sweden, eating bacon in front of Muslim women is considered a hate crime. A Swedish man is being prosecuted for
a "hate crime" after eating bacon in front of Muslim women wearing Islamic supremacist headbags on a train and making
so-called "racist" comments (despite the fact that Islam is not a race).
Tired Of Finger-Pointing After London Attack. Muslims in London were reacting with anger and frustration to the
resurfacing of stereotypes about adherents to their religion following the apparent Islamic State group terror attack near
Parliament on Wednesday [3/22/2017]. The working assumption was that the perpetrator of the driving and stabbing attacks that
left four victims dead and dozens more injured was a Muslim before the assailant was even identified. The entire episode has
forced many Muslims living in the U.K. to go on the defensive, the Washington Post reported Friday. "Why should we keep
apologizing? These people do not represent us," one person told the Washington Post. "They do not represent Islam."

Calls Criticism Of Muslim Prayers In School 'Hate Speech'. Brampton, Ontario Mayor Linda Jeffrey is dismissing critics
who object to Muslim students having Friday prayer sessions in public schools as purveyors of "misinformation and hateful speech."
Jeffrey was responding to critics in a letter she released Thursday as Toronto-area parents in the Peel District School Board are
preparing a full-scale protest on Saturday [3/11/2017] to demand that public schools not promote one religion over another.
The parents have organized a "Canada First" movement and plan a "Walk to Oppose Religion in Schools" this weekend at Celebration Square
near Square One in Mississauga, a suburb of Toronto. They are also opposed to the motion introduced by local Liberal Member of
Parliament Iqra Khalid that would ban "Islamophobia" and potentially make their protest subject to hate crimes legislation.
Star father Khizr Khan fundraising for the Democrats. Gold Star father Khizr Khan is raising money for
Democrats. Khan, father of a Muslim U.S. soldier killed in 2004 in Iraq, appears in a fundraising email from the
Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. "I love this country. My son died for this country," he begins.
"But today, President Trump is tearing down everything that makes America great. It's the fight of my life to stop
him: And I know taking back the House is the best way to do it."
Yup, Khan lied. Mr. Khan was scheduled
to speak at an event in Toronto in early March. But he contacted the speakers' forum and told them he would be unable
to attend because his "travel privileges are being reviewed." At the time, nobody bought it. Khan is a US citizen of
Pakistani descent. There would be no travel restrictions put on him due to President Trump's travel ban. But when
reporters attempted to clarify his claim, Khan refused to comment. Well, on Friday [3/17/2017], Mr. Khan finally responded.
Khan's new story: I didn't travel to Canada because of "the hassle of uncertain rules". Via the Free
Beacon. A few weeks ago, after he canceled an appearance in Toronto, he claimed it was because "his travel privileges
are being reviewed." Wrote Khan, "This turn of events is not just of deep concern to me but to all my fellow Americans who
cherish our freedom to travel abroad." Fast-forward two weeks and there's a new explanation: Khan wasn't barred from
traveling, he simply didn't want to gamble with Trump's new regulations. Even though, as a U.S. citizen, there's basically
nothing the feds can do to stop him from coming or going, especially to a country like Canada with minimal barriers to entry
Khan Changes Story About Why He Didn't Attend Toronto Event. Gold Star father Khizr Khan, who gained national
prominence criticizing Donald Trump's proposed Muslim ban at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, recently told a
reporter that he was not blocked from attending an event in Canada as he had claimed earlier.
Khan Changes Story About Why He Didn't Attend Toronto Event. Gold Star father Khizr Khan, who gained national
prominence criticizing Donald Trump's proposed Muslim ban at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, recently told a
reporter that he was not blocked from attending an event in Canada as he had claimed earlier. Khan's son, Army
Capt. Humayun Khan, was killed in 2004 during the Iraq War. Khizr Khan later become known nationwide after he
denounced then-candidate Trump in his July speech at the DNC, leading both men to get into a public feud. After the
election, Toronto-based RamsayTalks scheduled a March 7 luncheon on tolerance starring Khan. But in a Facebook post
one day before the event, the group announced that his speech had been cancelled because Khan was "notified that his travel
privileges are being reviewed."
Khan's claim that the U.S. is restricting his travel may be unraveling. Khizr Khan, the Gold Star father whose
impassioned speech at the Democratic National Convention in July called on Americans to reject a ban on Muslims entering the
United States, claimed that his "travel privileges are being reviewed" by U.S. authorities, forcing him to cancel a scheduled
speech in Toronto. The announcement on Monday coincided with President Trump's rewritten order to temporarily ban entry
of citizens from six Muslim-majority nations to the United States. Khan has been a U.S. citizen for more than 30 years
and was born in Pakistan, which is not one of the six nations.
Like Claim That Khizr Khan's Travel Privileges Have Been Restricted May Be Bogus. Earlier this week, it was
reported that Gold Star father and vocal Donald Trump critic Khizr Khan had to cancel a speech in Canada because his "travel
privileges are being reviewed." Obviously, with Khan being Muslim and this news coinciding with the announcement of a new
travel ban by the White House, there was quite a bit of concern. However, the story immediately drew suspicion because Khan is
an American citizen. So one would think there would be no such restriction on travel between the United States and Canada.
Le Pen could be jailed for three years for 'distributing violent images' over ISIS beheading tweets. French
presidential candidate Marine Le Pen has lost her European parliament immunity from prosecution in an obscene videos case
that could see her jailed for three years. The 48-year-old leader of the far-right Front National (FN) now faces being
summoned by a French judge, and being charged with 'distributing violent images'. Le Pen caused outrage by using
Twitter to publish films including one showing the decapitated U.S. journalist James Foley.
Suspect in anti-Arab Graffiti on Muslim Home is MUSLIM! Authorities say charges have been filed in connection

Fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad Joins the Hate Hoax List. Mike Hager, who claimed that his mother was unable to enter
the USA and receive medical treatment because of Trump's travel ban, even though she died before the ban was enacted, is not
the only unscrupulous person to exploit that ban to achieve a coveted place on the Hate Hoax List. Ballyhooed Olympic
athlete Ibtihaj Muhammad has joined him.
Muslim Face of the New Democratic Party. [Scroll down] One case, among countless others: The
anti-Trump women's march was co-led by an Islamist in a hijab. It is well worth reading the front-page exposé on
Linda Sarsour, because she is a leader of so many of the causes that Obama promoted as president: Occupy Wall St., BDS,
Black Lives Matter, the Muslim Brotherhood. After 9/11, Sarsour rose in power by promoting the jihadi fiction of
"Islamophobia." The Democratic Party uses this accusation to fight Republican national security measures and accord itself
unmerited moral superiority. Sarsour's Islamic group was a big success. It prevented the New York Police
Department from conducting surveillance of Muslim groups and mosques the police suspected of promoting terrorism. For
her work, Ms. Sarsour was honored by President Obama as a "White House Champion of Change" and was invited to the White
House seven times. [...] She did not sneak into the White House or get placed on the podium of the Women's March by
mistake. The Democratic Party rejects moderate Muslims and is happy to ally itself with Muslim-American radicals.
Towards Blasphemy Law. The term Islamophobia was created in the 1990s, when U.S. Muslim Brotherhood groups
decided to "play victim" for the purpose of "beating down critics." It is also in sync with a constant push by the
Organization of Islamic Cooperation to turn any criticism of Islam or Muslims into blasphemy. Is this what we want in
Canada? Blasphemy laws? As a Canadian Muslim I am very concerned about the direction in which we are headed.
My family and I came to Canada 29 years ago to embrace the values of a liberal democracy, of which freedom of speech is
the most vital. M-103 will kill free speech and goes directly against Canadian values. Canadians must speak out
against this attack on their democratic values. But now they won't, because they are being silenced by the fear of
being called Islamophobes.
Prosecutors won't file charges against Muslim
student suspected of hate-crime hoax. The Washtenaw County Prosecutors Office will not file charges against a
University of Michigan student suspected by the Ann Arbor Police Department of a hate-crime hoax, an official with the office
confirmed Monday to The College Fix. In November, a female University of Michigan student told police days after
the election that a white man demanded she remove her hijab or he would set her on fire with a lighter, an allegation later
deemed false by police.
hate crime hoax? Notice how most of these alleged 'anti-Muslim incidents' never seem to happen where there are
CCTV cameras or even one passerby with a cell phone.
take to the streets of London to protest against Donald Trump with some VERY insulting signs. Thousands of
protesters today [2/4/2017] to took to the streets of London to call on the Prime Minister to end her 'collusion' with US
President Donald Trump. The demonstration was organised by groups including the Stop the War Coalition, Stand Up to
Racism and the Muslim Association of Britain.
Who Claimed Mother Died In Iraq Due To Travel Ban Lied. They say that a lie gets halfway around the world
before the truth has the chance to put its shoes on. In this case, a lie went viral, was one of the top stories on
Reddit, and was used to slander a president before the truth came out.
A List Of All The Muslim Countries That Ban Jews. Fake news infected the body politic this week as liberals
lost their minds over President Trump's falsely-labeled "Muslim ban," which bars refugees from seven high-risk Muslim
majority countries (previously identified by President Obama's own Department of Homeland Security) for a period of 90
days. The so-called temporary "ban," issued via presidential executive order, was designed to assess the national
security treat posed by ISIS militants infiltrating refugee populations. To be clear, Trump's executive order doesn't
even scratch the surface of banning all Muslims. That's a fiction peddled by social justice warriors intent on
exploiting the public's fears about fascism to galvanize support for their pet causes and "non-profits." Eager to make
strange bedfellows with naïve and uber-tolerant progressives, Muslim community leaders and Islamic "advocacy"
organizations, including Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated CAIR, have all but turned victimhood into an art form.
girl who claimed she was pushed in front of a train because of her headscarf faces prosecution in Austria after CCTV shows
she invented the story. A 14-year-old Muslim girl who claimed she was pushed in front of a train simply for
wearing a headscarf has been challenged after police checked CCTV tapes. The girl, identified only as Sinem, claimed on
social media she had been called a 'terrorist' and was pushed onto the tracks by a man who had taken offence at her headscarf
at a railway station in the Austrian capital of Vienna. She told an online anti-racism forum she was only saved at the
'last second' by another man who pulled her onto the platform before the S-Bahn train arrived at Wien-Döbling station.

Tips for Hate Crime Hoaxers. The hijab hoaxer at the
University of Michigan described her imaginary Trump-supporting pursuer as white, in his 20s or 30s, with an athletic build, unkempt and intoxicated. He
demanded that she remove her hijab. (After a police investigation, she admitted she made it up.) The alleged hijab victim at University
of New Mexico, Leena Aggad, said her hijab was ripped off by "a really buff guy wearing a Trump shirt." (The attack was serious enough for her to tell
the media about it, but not serious enough to report it to campus security, much less the police.) A 28-year-old black woman, Kara Stevens, claimed three
Trump-supporting white men in their 30s approached her in a Safeway parking lot in Hillsboro, Oregon, mentioned Donald Trump — then threatened to turn
her into their "sex slave"! (Investigation suspended with no video, no witnesses and no evidence.)
doc whose Nebraska clinic infected patients, killing some, blames Islamophobia, seeks N.Y. license.
Dr. Tahir Ali Javed, whose Fremont cancer clinic infected dozens of patients with hepatitis a little more than a decade
ago, has applied for reinstatement of his medical license in New York. Javed, 47, fled to his native Pakistan 10 years
ago, when the severity of the hepatitis outbreak became known. His medical license in Nebraska was revoked. He
surrendered his New York license. In Pakistan, Javed became a public health official and reportedly blamed the
situation in Nebraska on anti-Muslim sentiment. Unsanitary practices in the Fremont clinic led to hepatitis C
infections in at least 99 patients, several of whom died.
Great Hijab Cover-Up. Forget fake news; the real issue is fake "hate." Has there been one (1) documented
hate crime committed by white people against any hue in the Rainbow Coalition since Nov. 8? That's out of the 9,456,723
hate crimes alleged by America's leading hate group, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The SPLC is to "hate" what Rolling
Stone is to rape. It is the biggest peddler of fantasies since Walt Disney. I've read through dozens of SPLC "hate crimes"
and they are all lies. The Muslim girls in particular seem to be very spirited liars.
Afghan Murderer Attacked Cops With Claw Hammer Because Left-Hand Drive Britain Is Too Stressful. An Afghan
migrant, who was convicted of beheading a woman in the Netherlands, walked unchecked into the UK where he went on to brutally
attack two police officers with a claw hammer. Jamshid Piruz's lawyer defended his actions by insisting the "offence
was committed at a time of stress for my client" as he "was in a foreign country" and was "very confused by the vehicles
driving on a different side of the road," reports to the Daily Mail. He had been sentenced to 12 years in
jail for slaughtering a female tenant in the Netherlands in 2006. The judge rejected his insanity plea, and court
documents said he was "inspired by Taliban movies" and had acted "intentionally and with premeditation".
media want you to think that Somali Muslims in America need to stock up on guns for protection. Yet it is the
Somali Muslim thugs, freeloaders, and jihadists who have been doing all the terrorizing of American neighborhoods in Minnesotastan.
Threat At University Of Michigan Was A Huge Hoax. The student grabbed national headlines in the days after
Trump's election victory when she claimed she was stalked by an intoxicated 20-something man with bad body odor and an
unkempt appearance. The man, she said, forced her take off her hijab and threatened to set her on fire with a lighter
if she did not. Despite the lack of evidence for the woman's claims, they were immediately treated as true by various
media outlets, as well as by the university itself, which immediately condemned the incident as a "hateful attack." The
incident was also seized upon by the Center for American-Islamic Relations, which tried to explicitly tie the supposed attack
to Trump's election as president. Now, more than a month later, Ann Arbor police say the whole attack was a sham.
University of Maryland students demand prayer rooms in every major building and ask that their names be kept from Donald
Trump. Muslim students at the University of Maryland are asking for prayer rooms to be built in every major campus
building as part of a lengthy list of demands to staff. They also want bus shuttle services to local mosques to be laid
on by the university and are asking for their names to be kept from President-elect Donald Trump if he creates a nationwide
Muslim registry. Their requests were among dozens issued by 'marginalized' students to the university's president last
month. In their request for prayer rooms, the students said it was difficult to access the current space provided and
often resorted to praying in stairwells as a result.
Concludes From Multiple Witnesses That YouTube Prankster Was Actually Shouting, Disruptive. So you know that
video that went viral that allegedly showed Delta kicking off a passenger for speaking Arabic? Well, apparently, Delta
investigated the situation, and now says it's not quite what it all seemed. In a statement obtained by LawNewz.com, the
airline said that after collecting statements from "multiple passengers," they have concluded that YouTube star Adam Saleh,
and his travel mate, were actually trying to disrupt the plane with "provocative behavior," and were shouting. Adam
Saleh, who has more than 1.6 million YouTube subscribers, posted a video on Twitter that claimed that passengers complained
of feeling "uncomfortable" after he spoke to his mom in Arabic and he was subsequently escorted off the plane.
Whaaaaaat?!!! She lied?!
No. I can't even pretend to be surprised. There was no attack. And there were no drunken Trump
supporters. Or sober Trump supporters for that matter. Apparently the only drunk here was the girl.
Ellison: In Texas There's A Little Girl Worried 'The Detention Squad' is Coming For Her Parents. During a
speech to Texas Democrats over the weekend, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) warned that some children were wondering if
"the detention squad" is coming for thier parents. "Somewhere in Texas right now, there is a little girl wondering
whether the detention squad is going to take her parents away," Ellison can be seen telling the gathering in a video posted
by the Texas Progressive Caucus. Ellison also warned Texas Democrats of people threatening to privatize Social
Security, wanting to register Muslims, and people getting "roped up" by police.
Claiming He Was Kicked Off Plane For Speaking Arabic Has History of Hoaxing People. YouTube celebrity Adam
Saleh when viral Wednesday morning [12/21/2016] when he posted a video claiming to show he was being kicked off a Delta
Airlines flight because he "spoke Arabic" on the phone and to a friend. The claim quickly took off, and media outlets
reported the allegation without question. But Saleh has a history of hoax videos, including being caught just last week
by another airline claiming he was lying about "smuggling" himself onto a plane by hiding in a suitcase. Saleh's claim
of racism has garnered more than 250,000 retweets.
fake hate crime hoaxer now claims Delta removed him from plane for speaking Arabic. In 2014, Adam Saleh
published a video showing an NYPD officer profiling and harassing Muslims. It was sensational, it was shocking, it was
clear evidence of NYPD "Islamophobia." It went viral and made international news. There was just one catch: it was a
hoax. Saleh had staged the whole thing. The incident was so embarrassing that even Ibrahim Hooper of Hamas-linked
CAIR, a veteran purveyor of fake hate crimes against Muslims, demanded that Saleh apologize. Now, coincidence of coincidences,
Saleh claims that he was kicked off a Delta Airlines flight for speaking Arabic. Even aside from Saleh's history as a
hate crime hoaxer, his story just doesn't ring true.
of Michigan Student Made Up Story About Man Threatening to Burn Hijab. The bad part of these hate crime hoaxes
is the original report always get more attention than the follow-up. And the follow-up usually shows it's bogus.
Guess that "wave of hate crimes" post-election are pretty much 100% bogus.
of Muslim student who made up Trump supporter subway attack story blames NYPD, media. The sister of a Muslim

NYC Hate Hoax 'Highlights Pressures' on Muslims. Yasmin Seweid, 18, has been charged by the New York City
Police Department (NYPD) for filing a fraudulent police report after she claimed Trump supporters called her a terrorist and
attempted to pull her hijab off her head, as Breitbart Texas reported. A source with the New York Daily News said
Seweid stood by her story until NYPD continued to press her on the matter after finding no evidence that the attack
occurred. Seweid admitted that she had fabricated the story, claiming she had family problems.
Woman Arrested After Claiming Trump Supporters Attacked Her On NYC Subway. Yasmin Seweid, a Baruch College
student, initially reported to police that she boarded a uptown No. 6 train at East 23rd St. on Dec. 1 and was called a
"terrorist" by three drunken young white men. She also alleged that one of the men grabbed her bag and broke the strap.
Many people became suspicious of the story when no witnesses of the attack came forward and only one of the men she described could
be found on security footage.
Beware of one-dimensional statistics.
Lynch: 67% Increase in Hate Crimes Against Muslim Americans in 2015. U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said
Monday that there has been a 67 percent increase in hate crimes committed against Muslim Americans, according to FBI
statistics released on the number of hate crimes committed in 2015. Lynch said that number represented "the highest total
of anti-Muslim incidents since the 9/11 attacks in 2001. "Just last month, the FBI released its statistics on the number
of hate crimes committed in 2015. The report was a sobering indication of how much work remains to be done. Overall,
the number of reported hate crimes increased six percent from 2014," Lynch said at an interfaith event on the Justice Department's
commitment to combat hate crimes.
FBI data: Jews were nearly 3X more likely than blacks, 1.5X more likely than Muslims to be a hate crime victim.
Members of which of these groups were most likely to be a victim of a hate crime in 2015: Muslims, Blacks or Jews? Based
on media coverage, you would have to say Muslims or Blacks. According to a Google news search for the term "hate crimes" along
with the name of each of those three groups, there are 164,000 results for "hate crimes" + black, 134,000 results for "hate
crimes" + Muslims and only 36,400 results for "hate crimes" + Jews. Based on news reports, you would think that blacks were
4.5 times more likely than Jews to be the victim of a hate crime and that Muslims were almost 4 times more than likely
than Jews to be a hate crime victim. And yet recently released hate crime data from the FBI for 2015 reveal that there were
1,745 African-American victims of hate crimes last year, 664 Jewish victims of anti-religious hate crimes and 257 Muslim hate

Says Ohio State Attacker's Family 'Very Afraid' After Trump Tweet. The family of Abdul Razak Ali Artan is
finally speaking out through an attorney, one week after authorities say their son was responsible for an attack at Ohio
State University that wounded 11 people. Artan was killed during the attack by a police officer who responded to the
scene. The family's attorney, Robert Fitrakis, spoke to VOANews.com and said the family is deeply concerned for their
safety as a result of a tweet from President-elect Donald Trump in the aftermath of he attack.
Debates Prof. on Islamophobia's Role in Terrorism. Tucker Carlson debated the merits of Islamophobia's effect
on the diaspora of domestic terrorism with a Georgetown professor that said such a mindset can indeed have
implications. Engy Abdelkader said there is never a justification of an attack like the one at Ohio State
University. But, she said that anti-Muslim bigotry can contribute to a sense of "cultural homelessness" in the
in State Department, Defense Department, and CIA debate quitting. Muslims working in the State Department,
Defense Department, and intelligence agencies like the CIA wonder if, with the election of Donald Trump, they should quit
their jobs. [...] I would be very disappointed if Muslims working at the most sensitive levels of the government quit their
jobs. I sleep better at night knowing that wonderful Muslims are working tirelessly to protect us at the most senior
levels of the CIA, Department of Defense, and the State Department... unless they aren't committed to fighting the war
on radical Islamic terror. If they won't name radical Islam at the enemy we are fighting, they should resign.
Amazon reportedly removes
'offensive' Allah doormat after social media criticism. Amazon online retailer appears to have removed a
doormat product from its website after criticism on social media that the mat with the word 'Allah' offends Muslims. A
petition urging a boycott was subsequently launched online. Comments on social media suggest that advertisements with
pictures of doormats with Islamic symbols have been up on Amazon at least since June. One of them alleged that "Allah
Islam Symbols Doormat and Dog Mat" could be bought for $17.44.
the FBI knows a CAIR scam when they see it. For the past several days, designated terrorist group CAIR has been
demanding federal law enforcement "hate crime" investigations of an anti-Muslim letter allegedly sent to 3 mosques in
'Caliphornia.' But the FBI, fed-up with Muslims constantly crying wolf, appears to be ignoring them this time. [...] The
letter, as you can see, likely was sent by a Muslim, as evidenced by the kind of phrases Muslims like to use against infidels.
State University knifeman slammed US media for making him 'scared' to pray in public. The extremist and Ohio
State University student, who stabbed and shot 11 people on his campus yesterday, previously slammed the US media for making
him "scared" to pray in public. Speaking to The Lantern, his university paper in August, Abdul Razak Ali Artan, said he
continuously complained about America's treatment of Muslims to his mother. In the article, Artan — a Somalian
refugee — said: "If people look at me, a Muslim praying, I don't know what they're going to think, what's going to
happen. "I am a Muslim, it's not what the media portrays me to be."
The Victim Mentality
Kills. Take a good look at the Facebook post of the Ohio State University attacker. Sure, there's plenty
of that familiar jihadist rhetoric. "America, stop interfering with other countries, especially the Muslim Ummah.
We are not weak... By Allah, we will not let you sleep unless you give peace to the Muslims. You will not celebrate or
enjoy any holiday." But what comes through most is this whining sense of victimhood, that he's forced to commit these
atrocious, barbaric attacks on innocent people out of a righteous sense of self-defense to protect his feelings.
Ohio State Terrorist Attack — CNN Suggests American Women Wear Hijabs in Solidarity. During a

The Editor asks...
Why should we be "in solidarity" with homicidal maniacs bent on world domination?
Latest FBI Study Proves Liberals Wrong on Islamophobia —
Again. 731 Jews (52.1%) had hate crimes committed against them in 2015 compare that to 307 Muslims (21.9%), and
176 Christians (11.3%). Notice that the number of crimes against all 3 groups rose in 2015, but it's still Jews who are far
more likely to be the victim of a hate crime. I still echo my comments on this issue from last year; liberals have no
reason to be fear mongering about Islamophobia. It does more harm than good by creating a tense situation and breeding
disdain and distrust among neighbors. The vast majority of Americans need no instruction on how they should be treating

More Hate Crime Hoaxes
from Muslims. It's pretty safe to assume that hate crime hoaxes — particularly regarding
Muslims — will explode off the charts during the Trump administration. Varieties of faked hate have been
roiling communities and college campuses for years with no let up. One count finds 100 hate crime hoaxes in the last
decade, and the Trump presidency is sure to inspire even greater phony-baloney victimhood. One memorable freakout
occurred in 2012 when an Iraqi Muslim man residing in El Cajon murdered his wife and faked it as a hate crime: the
town's Muslims went nuts, hysterically blaming Islam critics like Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller for creating
"Islamophobia" thereby causing the crime.
student 'fabricated' story of hijab attack, police say. A student at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette
fabricated a story that she was attacked and had her hijab rippped off, police said Thursday [11/10/2016]. The attack was
one of several reported in the wake of Donald Trump's election victory. In a press release Thursday afternoon, the
Lafayette Police Department said that during the course of their investigation into the woman's complaint, she "admitted that
she fabricated the story about her physical attack as well as the removal of her hijab and wallet by two white males.
Trump accused of stalking Muslim kids in their dreams. Here we have an article blaming Donald Trump for terrorizing
children for something he has never said or even intimated. He doesn't want to put all Muslims in jail; he just wants to
reduce immigration from countries that are un-vettable in the Middle East. One does not translate into the other.

passes resolution condemning "hate speech" against Muslims. Violence is one thing, and violence against innocent people is
always to be condemned, but that doesn't need a Miami Commission resolution. "Hate speech" is another matter altogether. It's
a subjective classification, and that's why this is so dangerous. By "hate speech" Islamic groups, such as Nezar Hamze's Hamas-linked
Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), all too often mean any honest discussion of how Islamic jihadists use the texts and teachings
of Islam to justify violence and hatred and supremacism. The Miami Commission doesn't realize how it is being played: it is
opening the door to criminalization of all criticism of Islam, as per Sharia blasphemy laws; and that would effectively shut down any
opposition to the advancing jihad.
so-called "Islamophobia that allegedly drove a Muslim family out of America" turns out to be a hoax. First came
the outrage, "Islamophobia Just Drove This Boy And His Family Out Of America." One tiny little problem. You can
probably guess what it is: Investigators could find no evidence that a Muslim child was attacked on school bus.
Who Just Unanimously Endorsed October As 'Islamic Heritage Month'. None of those 'amazing makeover' shows can
even TOUCH what the PR teams have done for Islam since 9/11. They went from the violent attackers levelling the Twin
Towers and hitting the Pentagon, to being the latest in a parade of special status victim classes with their very own
'phobia'. One Canadian Province — which, in response to public outrage in 2005, reversed its plans to allow
Sharia courts to have full legal legitimacy — has now set aside October as 'Islamic Heritage Month'.
Want a President Who Will End Victimism. Great news! The Obama administration is proposing a new race category.
It's for people of Middle Eastern and North African descent — MENA for those in the know. Why? It's obvious when
you go to USA Today and read the blather about how the new race category could solve all kinds of problems with community identity and
private-sector discrimination. In other words, liberals are going full-speed ahead to square up Muslims as another victim
group for their victim politics. See, creating a MENA race category could be used in "drawing congressional and state legislative
district boundaries." In other words, majority-minority congressional districts.
women furious Americans don't smile at them on airplanes. Muslim women are being beaten, killed, and sold into
slavery in the Muslim Middle East. But these are small potatoes compared to the indignities fundamentalist Muslim women
are suffering in America. In America, sharia-compliant women complain that Americans do not smile enough at them on
airplanes. This is why the New York Times has chosen to put a spotlight on the indignities hijab-covered women suffer
every time they go to the airport.
Memos: George Soros Network Hyped 'Islamophobia' After Muslim Terror Attacks. In the wake of Islamic terrorist attacks
in the U.S. and abroad, grantees of George Soros's Open Society Foundations mobilized to counter anti-refugee and anti-Muslim immigration
sentiment while using the attacks to push gun control and advocate against the surveillance of Muslims in major U.S. cities such as New
York. Hacked Foundations memos reviewed by Breitbart Jerusalem betray the symbiotic relationship between Soros' grantees and prominent
politicians, including Attorney General Loretta Lynch, in working to push these agendas.
Minnesota Jihad Stabbing Puts Muslims at Risk. At a press conference addressing a jihadist attack in Minnesota,
the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) warned Muslims are now potential victims at risk of being harmed in
retaliation. CAIR has been declared a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates and was named by federal
prosecutors as an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas-funding operation. The St. Cloud, Minnesota, mass stabbing
occurred at the city's Crossroads Center mall on Saturday night. A Somali man allegedly shouted, "Allah," as he stabbed
nine people before he was shot dead by an off-duty officer. All nine victims stabbed at the Crossroads Center mall in
St. Cloud survived.

nine people at a Minnesota mall as a potential act of terrorism, a finding that would realize long-held fears of an attack in
the immigrant-rich state that has struggled to stop the recruiting of its young men by groups including the Islamic
State. A young Somali man dressed as a private security guard entered the Crossroads Center mall in St. Cloud

least one reference to Allah and asked a victim if he or she was Muslim before attacking.

West, forced Islamization of our schools, and incessant Muslim demands for accommodation of their anti-social, anti-American
in the West: Principal under investigation for truthful posts that offended Muslims. Apparently an
Ontario, Canada school principal criticizing Muslims in Europe for not standing up against the violence done in the name of
their religion, and expressing an opinion that burkas should be permitted in France when bikinis are permitted in Saudi
Arabia, is enough to cause a public furor and calls for her termination. Islam and Islamic government are a unique
threat to free speech and liberty. Freedom of speech is the foundation of a free society. Without it, a tyrant
can wreak havoc unopposed, while his opponents are silenced.
under investigation for anti-Muslim posts. The York Region District School Board is investigating allegations
that an elementary school principal put anti-Muslim posts on her Facebook page. [...] The Ontario College of Teachers has
guidelines for teachers to follow when it comes to their use of social media. "Teaching is a public profession," the
college writes in a 2011 advisory on social media. "Canada's Supreme Court ruled that teachers' off-duty conduct, even
when not directly related to students, is relevant to their suitability to teach. Members should maintain a sense of
professionalism at all times — in their personal and professional lives."
Are Islamic Terrorists Not Islamic Terrorists? "Islamophobia" is running rampant in the heretofore bucolic town
of Oswego, New York, and Muslims are worried. Are marauding bands of "right-wing extremists" pulling hijabs off little
old Muslim ladies and daubing swastikas on the walls of mosques? No, the "Islamophobia" in question appears on Oswego's
new 9/11 memorial monument, which dares to refer to the perpetrators of the September 11, 2001 jihad terror attacks as
"Islamic terrorists." In this age of Obama, Oswego should have known better!
Muslims enraged that 9/11 monument in small New York town calls perpetrators "Islamic
terrorists". "The Islamic Organization of the Southern Tier worries the wording could encourage hatred toward Muslims living
in the area, painting all Muslims with the same brush." This is an oft-used and tired talking point. How does identifying the
motivating ideology of the 9/11 attackers paint all Muslims with the same brush? Does referring to the Italian mafia amount to
calling all Italians mafiosi? Does referring to German Nazis mean that one is calling all Germans National Socialists? This
is just an attempt to deflect attention away from the ideology of the 9/11 hijackers, and to keep people ignorant and complacent regarding
the fact that those hijackers were working from Islamic principles that are embedded within the Islamic texts that are read and studied
and taught by the Islamic Organization of the Southern Tier.
Muslim Mayor Introduces The Thought Police. London's new Muslim mayor, Sadiq Khan, is allocating over two million dollars
(£1,730,726) to an "online hate crime hub" enabling police to track and arrest "trolls" who "target... individuals and communities."
There can be no doubt, given the nature of the British political establishment today, which "trolls" these new Thought Police will be going after,
and which "communities" will be protected from "hate speech." "Islamophobia," which David Horowitz and I termed "the thought crime of the
totalitarian future," is now going to bring down upon the hapless "trolls" the wrath of London's Metropolitan police force — and this
totalitarian new initiative shows yet again how easily the Leftist and Islamic supremacist agendas coincide and aid each other.
Arrest Hispanic Suspect In New York Imam Murder. A man suspected of gunning down a Queens imam and his friend
outside a mosque was taken into custody Sunday night, sources said. The motive in the horrific Saturday afternoon
killings may be an ongoing feud between Muslims and Hispanics, according to sources. [...] A group of Muslims allegedly
attacked some Hispanics a few weeks before, and the shooting may have been pay back.

accused of murdering an imam and his assistant in New York had 'hatred' toward Muslims after 9/11, his brother has said — as
police investigate whether he was hired as a hitman. Hispanic Oscar Morel, 35, of Brooklyn, was charged Monday night [8/15/2016]
with two counts of second-degree for the killings of Imam Maulana Alauddin Akonjee and Thara Uddin after cops say they recovered
what they believe is the gun at his home. Investigators found clothes similar to those worn by the gunman in surveillance

shooter in Queens slaying of Imam and friend may have been settling score in Muslim-Hispanic feud. The killer
who crept up behind an imam and his friend near a Queens mosque and shot both men in the head may have been settling a score
in a feud between Muslims and Hispanics, police sources said early Monday [8/15/2016]. And he may have left behind another
victim who unwittingly held the clue that solved the crime, the sources said. The suspected killer was taken into
custody Sunday night but had not been charged or identified, according to the sources. Police officials would not
confirm whether a suspect was nabbed.
The Editor says...
I don't approve of this cowardly attack in any way, but it was portrayed in the news media as an attack on a couple of Muslims
just because they were Muslims, when there is apparently much more to the story.
Muslim convert refuses to serve alcohol then sues airline when suspended. We first told you about this sharia

group sues New Jersey town for religious discrimination after it rejected plans for a mosque. A New Jersey town
is being sued by an Islamic group who have accused the planning board of bigotry after it rejected a proposal for a mosque.
[...] The group, led by Mohammed Ali Chaudry, a former Bernards mayor, filed a federal civil rights suit accusing the board
of religious discrimination in March. It alleges a delayed and drawn-out process during which residents made references
to terrorism and questioned what children would learn in the mosque.
Man Converts To Islam, Demands Fridays
Off, Employer Has Nasty Offer Instead. A man was working as a community assistant at a New York City homeless
shelter when he decided to become a devout Muslim who needed Fridays off for prayer. However, instead of giving in to
his demands, the department decided to offer him something else entirely.
couple kicked off Delta flight for 'sweating', saying 'Allah' and texting. A Muslim couple who accused Delta
Air Lines of Islamophobia for throwing them off a flight have spoken of their ordeal for the first time. They said they
were singled out because flight crew had noticed them "sweating" and saying the word "Allah", which they denied. Faisal
Ali and Nazia Ali were waiting for about 45 minutes on a Delta Air Lines flight in Paris to fly back to Cincinnati, Ohio
when a Delta employee asked the couple to exit the aircraft as he needed to ask them questions.
Creeping Sharia in Health
Care. Islamic supremacy is arriving in medical settings using stealth means, or what is often referred to as creeping sharia.
Common themes include Muslim health care workers refusing to uphold infection control protocols, Muslim medical students refusing to study topics
they deem forbidden according to Islamic law, Muslim visitors in hospitals ignoring hygiene guidelines to protect patients, and hospitals bending
over backwards (or is it forwards?) to accommodate Muslim demands above and beyond anything done for members of any other religious or demographic
group. Also covered are outright acts of violence perpetrated by Muslim men who attack hospital personnel. Islamic supremacy +
dhimmitude = the end of civilized societies.

warns citizens traveling abroad to avoid wearing traditional garb after Ohio incident. The United Arab Emirates
warned its citizens Saturday to avoid wearing traditional garb when traveling abroad after an Emirati man was arrested and
mistaken for a terrorist in Ohio. Emirati media reported that Ahmed al-Menhali was detained at gun point last week
while wearing a traditional white kandura, or ankle-length robe, and headscarf in Avon, Ohio after a hotel clerk raised
suspicions he could have links to Islamic State. WEWS-TV reported that al-Menhali had been in Ohio for medical
treatment. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that Emiratis should avoid wearing the garments for their safety
and a separate statement urged women to abide by bans on face veils in parts of Europe.
NYPD Officer Refuses to Shave Beard, Sues When Suspended. A Muslim New York Police Department officer was
suspended without pay and escorted out of police headquarters for refusing to shave his beard which he said he grew for
religious reasons. Officer Masood Syed, who said he has maintained about half-to-one-inch beard (13-25mm) for most of
his 10-year career, has sued the department saying its no-beard policy is unconstitutional. The department says it bans
beards as a safety measure so gas masks fit tightly across faces, but allows beards for religious reasons up to one
millimeter in length.

the "Islamophobes": From Bill Maher to Mark Levin. What do talk show host Bill Maher, author and Eagle Forum
Founder Phyllis Schlafley and Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin all have in common? They're all
Islamophobes, according to a new report released by the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) on Tuesday [6/14/2016].
[...] But let's not forget who's throwing these labels around here. We're talking about CAIR. This is a group
affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood and was an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2007 Holy Land Foundation case, in which
the DOJ investigated and prosecuted a conspiracy to direct funding to Hamas. Ironically, or maybe not, this is also the
same group that President Obama confers with on his "countering violent extremism" agenda.
Schools Teaching Students to Hate America As Left Appeases Muslims With 'Religious Literacy' Training.
Progressives are concerned about reports of Muslim students feeling "marginalized" and discriminated against after the
shooting massacre by an Islamic terrorist in Orlando, but there is little concern that — for years —
students in the United States have been taught to dislike their country. The Washington Post is reporting that
Muslim students in the United States are experiencing bullying and discrimination in the wake of the shooting massacre by
jihadist Omar Mateen at a gay bar in Orlando, Florida.
rep. decries Trump's 'villainous rampage against other Americans'. Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) on Monday
night [6/13/2016] called Donald Trump "a narcissistic fascist" for shifting the focus to himself in the wake of the deadliest
mass shooting in U.S. history. Ellison, the first Muslim member of Congress, decried the presumptive GOP presidential
nominee for turning attention away from the 49 people killed and 53 injured at a gay nightclub in Orlando on
Sunday. Trump has come under fire for a self-congratulatory tweet he sent out after the terrorist attack, in which
he said he "appreciate[s] the congrats for being right on radical Islamic terrorism."
Sharia? Liberal Party of Canada vows to eliminate 'Islamophobia'. Justin Trudeau's Liberal Party approved
a resolution 'condemning all forms of Islamophobia' at their 2016 Biennial Convention in Winnipeg. According to CIJ

lawmakers say hateful behavior against them is awakening loyal Americans. Muslims who support Donald Trump's
presidential campaign are like chickens rooting for Colonel Sanders, one of the two Muslims serving in Congress said Tuesday
[5/24/2016]. "You think that you're going to be the chicken that doesn't get fried up," said Rep. Keith Ellison,
D-Minn. "I think you better guess again[.]" Ellison and Rep. Andre Carson, D-Ind., the other Muslim in
Congress, spoke at the National Press Club about discriminatory rhetoric directed at Muslims in the presidential election.
Forum Features Panelists Linked to Terror and Bigotry. This month, the Muslim Students Association (MSA) at
Florida Atlantic University (FAU) will be sponsoring a panel discussion about Islamophobia. Islamophobia is a
modern-day term used mainly by Islamists to describe an unwarranted fear or hatred of Islam and/or Muslims and a term also
used by the like to, more appropriately, shut down any conversation about the radical element found within the Muslim
community. Not surprisingly, the majority of the event's panel is made up of those linked to terrorism and bigotry,
Don't Assimilate, They Infiltrate. The term "Islamophobia" was invented and promoted in the early 1990s by the
International Institute for Islamic Thought, a front group of the Muslim Brotherhood. It was designed as a weapon to
advance a totalitarian cause by stigmatizing critics and silencing them, similar to the tactics used by the political left,
when they hurl the accusations of "racist," "sexist," "homophobe" and "hate-speech." It became the role of Islamist
lobby organizations like the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to depict themselves as civil-rights groups
speaking out on behalf of a Muslim American population that was allegedly besieged by outsiders who harbored an illogical,
unfounded fear of them and regularly accusing the American people, American institutions, law-enforcement authorities, and
the U.S. government of harboring a deep and potentially violent prejudice against Muslims. Of course, FBI data on hate
crimes show that such allegations are nonsense.

student's family considering legal options in Citadel's decision. A spokesman for the family of a newly-accepted Muslim
student at The Citadel says they are considering legal options following the Commandant of Cadets' decision to reject the student's
request to wear a head cover. Ibrahim Hooper with the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Washington said he spoke with the
family Tuesday morning [5/10/2016] after Citadel officials called to tell the woman she could not wear a hijab.
the media didn't tell you: Muslim student who got kicked off Southwest Airlines. The mainstream media and
their pals at designated terrorist group CAIR went ballistic after learning that an Iraqi student was removed from a flight

left out is that the (see something say something) woman is a native Arabic speaker and said he was talking about terror
students at elite French university under fire for Hijab Day event. Students at an elite Paris university
sparked fierce debate Wednesday [4/20/2016] by inviting classmates to wear the Muslim head scarf for a day. The event at Paris's
Sciences Po university was held to raise awareness of treatment of women who wear the hijab, but the initiative was fiercely
criticised on social media and by student union representatives. The event was held in the wake of Prime Minister
Manuel Valls' controversial statement that he wished to ban all forms of religious headscarves at French universities.
The Citadel considers
first-ever uniform exception: allowing a Muslim hijab. The Citadel is considering a request from an admitted
student that she be allowed to wear a hijab in keeping with her Muslim faith, a move that would be an unprecedented exception
to the school's longstanding uniform requirements. If the request for the traditional Muslim hair covering is granted,
it apparently would be the first exception made to the Citadel's uniform, which all cadets at the storied public military
college in South Carolina are required to wear at nearly all times. (At beaches, for example, college rules stipulate that,
"Cadets will change into appropriate swimwear upon arrival and change back into uniform when departing.") A spokeswoman said
that to her knowledge, in its nearly 175-year history, the school has never granted a religious, or other, accommodation that
resulted in a change to the uniform.
The Editor says...
One of us doesn't understand what uniform means, and it isn't me. If the school wants uniformity, they should not admit those who demand special
rules for themselves. Moreover, until Islamic terrorism is brought to an end, military schools should not admit those whose loyalty might suddenly evaporate
someday without warning. Remember Fort Hood.
defends exempting Muslim students from handshake. A school district in canton Basel Country stands behind its
decision to allow some Muslim students to not participate in a ritual of shaking their female teacher's hand before and after
class, despite the controversy the move has unleashed across Switzerland. Last week it was reported that two Muslim
students in a school in Therwil, a town outside Basel, did not wish to shake their female teacher's hand along with the rest
of the class because it went against their religious principles.
CAIR files suit claiming terror watch list discriminates against Muslims. Hamas-linked CAIR's Michigan top dog
Dawud Walid said: "I think the question is, are we going to be selective about this? Are we following people and
placing people on this list who go to KKK meetings, people who go to Donald Trump rallies?" So in Dawud Walid's world, he
would have you believe that people who go to Donald Trump rallies are just as likely to commit acts of terror as people who
believe in a religion that exhorts believers to wage war against and subjugate unbelievers, and whose adherents have been
responsible for over 28,000 terror attacks worldwide since 9/11.

Woman Admits Faking Knife Attack Hate Crime in New York City. On Thursday [3/31/2016], a Muslim woman in New

What Islamophobia? What is
Islamophobia? No one's really sure. According to author Salman Rushdie, it is "an addition to the vocabulary of
Humpty Dumpty Newspeak." The late Christopher Hitchens called it a "stupid term" that was "put into circulation to try and
suggest that a foul prejudice lurks behind any misgivings about Islam's infallible 'message.'" "I refuse to use this term
'Islamophobia,' because those who use this word are trying to invalidate any criticism at all of Islamist ideology," said French
Prime Minister Manuel Valls after the 2015 Charlie Hebdo massacres. "The charge of 'Islamophobia' is used to silence people."
Yet CAIR and its allies cry "Islamophobia" whenever necessary, as when militant Islam strikes and kills the innocent, which seems
Is Just Jihad. [Scroll down] Reality check: ISIS isn't "seeking to manipulate European fears of
terrorism;" it is creating those fears by its own actions. Those fears wouldn't exist but for Islamic terrorism.
Any heightened security and immigration measures that Europe may belatedly implement are not the product of some irrational
paranoia; they are the product of the demonstrated failure of existing policies to protect innocent lives. ISIS engages in
the same brutal tactics in countries with civil liberties and in countries without civil liberties. Those tactics are not
designed to trigger a lessening of civil liberties, but to kill as many people as possible.

Katie Couric called for it during the Ground Zero Mosque controversy, saying that America needed a Muslim Cosby Show. Now that Bill Cosby is so
resoundingly discredited, Reza Aslan, with his typical clumsiness, called for a Muslim All in the Family, apparently not realizing that the central
character of that show was held up as a bigoted object of ridicule. But clearly both calls meant the same thing: if Americans could just
see Muslims outside of the context of jihad terrorism, they would love them, and "Islamophobia" would evanesce.
Freedom of association is the issue here:
Rights groups sue over 'Muslim-free' Oklahoma gun range. Two U.S. activists groups filed a federal lawsuit on Wednesday [2/17/2016]
against a rural Oklahoma gun range, arguing that it violated U.S. civil rights laws by posting a sign that said the business was "Muslim free"
and barring a Muslim from shooting there.
Army reservist sues Oklahoma gun range for refusing him service. The lawsuit on behalf of 29-year-old Raja'ee Fatihah, an employee with the

the small town of Oktaha.
Who Is Suing Gun Range Demanded CAIR Float for Veteran's Day Parade. Our legal team, the American Freedom Law

Oklahoma chapter, sued Chad (a disabled Iraqi war veteran) and Nicole Neal, the owners of the Save Yourself Survival and Tactical
Gun Range in Oktaha, Oklahoma. Fatihah is the same person who caused a national controversy back in November 2015 when he demanded

Reality TV: Obama at the Mosque. [Scroll down]
Already Muslims are a privileged group. Just as the Obama administration interprets freedom of religion selectively as it wants to force a
Christian baker who finds a gay wedding immoral to bake a wedding cake for a gay wedding, or a Christian florist to provide the wedding flowers,
the same Obama lawyers favor Muslims. The government seems to believe that a Muslim truck driver must be "accommodated" if he doesn't want
to transport alcohol, or a Muslim airline steward must be "accommodated" if he doesn't want to serve alcohol. Abercrombie and Fitch, a
clothing chain that was selling clothes via sexual appeal, was told it had to hire a Muslim who didn't fit the A-F image. If you can't do
the job, don't apply. Now Muslim employees at a factory are suing to get five breaks for prayer. This is not a Muslim country.
If Muslim immigrants want to be called to prayer five times a day, perhaps they would be happier in a Muslim country.
firm terminates Muslim workers in prayer dispute. A civil liberties group said Wednesday [2/3/2016] that it plans to file
federal discrimination and harassment complaints after a Wisconsin manufacturer fired seven Muslim employees for violating a company break
policy that doesn't provide extra time for prayer.
Barack Obama suffers from serious case of the real Islamophobia — fear of telling the truth about Islam. Even
though a "progressive," he says nary a word about the rampant misogyny and homophobia in Islam or about Sharia law whose medieval
strictures are preferred by 51% of American Muslims. Nor does he seem to care that so few of these same American Muslims
actively oppose radical Islam. The president prefers the Hamas-linked CAIR to courageous reformers like Dr. Zuhdi Jasser.
But that's no surprise. For Obama, radical Islam doesn't even exist. Instead, he claims American citizens are mistreating
their Muslim brothers and sisters when anyone with a web browser can see that simply isn't true and is yet another Obama lie.
prayer rules at Ariens leave dozens of Muslims unemployed. Ariens Manufacturing changed its prayer-on-the-job

They're Hiding From You: Trump 'Silent Protester' Is a Supporter Of Islamic Terrorism. There have been
widespread calls for Presidential front runner Donald Trump to issue an apology to Rose Hamid. You'll recall that Hamid was
the woman who silently protested a Trump campaign stop before being ejected from the event by security. But as has often
been the case with political plants at Republican events, the public was only given part of the story. In reality, Rose
Hamid isn't a silent follower of the religion a peace, but rather, an ardent supporter of Jihadist activities, having gone so
far as to refer to jihadi terrorism as "resistance against occupation." Moreover, she personally promoted an event held by
one of the terrorists responsible for the bombing of the World Trade Centers in 1993 and by doing so directly supported his calls
for the creation of an Islamic state under Sharia law in the United States of America.
The Western Spring.
News that CAIR has demanded an apology from Donald Trump for evicting a Muslim protester at his rally and reports that left-wing
protesters and police have turned out in force to bottle up "far-right" demonstrators in Germany bookend a single story. It's
on, the long awaited fight against PC orthodoxy is finally on. Trump is unlikely to apologize, CAIR even more unlikely to back
down. With 3 million Middle Eastern and African refugees due to arrive in Europe this year the clashes between German
protesters are only likely to intensify. The commotion you hear is not going to stop, it will only get worse. The
Western Spring is finally here, and before it's done it threatens to change everything. The tension between the forces of political
correctness and the pent-up forces of repressed cultural traditions is now bursting like a spring wound up beyond containment.
Settles 2 Lawsuits Regarding Surveillance of Muslims After 9/11. The NYPD has settled its two ongoing lawsuits over surveillance
of Muslims following the September 11th terror attacks. As part of the settlement, the NYPD has agreed to a civilian lawyer,

Colorado, a Fake Tale of Anti-Muslim Discrimination. As usual, over at the Daily Beast Dean Obeidallah
has his dress over his head, this time about Cargill Meat Solutions in Fort Morgan, Colo., which last week terminated about
190 Somali Muslim workers. [...] So, in fact, contra Obeidallah, the vast majority of the 190 employees in question were
not fired for wanting to pray; they were fired for not showing up for work for three days, in express violation of the terms
of their employment.
What's Their Beef? Minnesota-based
Cargill, one of the largest agricultural commodity firms on the planet, employs roughly 2,000 people at its huge beef-processing plant in
Fort Morgan, a town of about 11,500 people eighty miles northeast of Denver. About 400 of these workers are from Somalia and are, I presume,
Muslim. After all, nearly 100% of the country's population is Muslim. Its national constitution says that "Islam is the religion of
the State," that "No religion other than Islam can be propagated in the country," and that "No law can be enacted that is not compliant with...
Shari'ah." The Somali government recently banned Christmas celebrations saying that they could "damage the faith of the Muslim community"
and provoke attacks by Islamic terrorists. So which is it: are Somali Muslims fragile snowflakes or murderous barbarians?
Or, in a perfect recipe for a failed state, both? And you wonder why so many Somali immigrants, or their American-born children, have
been recruited by al-Shabab and now ISIS.
Democrats Move to Criminalize Criticism of Islam. December 17, 2015 ought henceforth to be a date which will

this week for walking off the job to protest a workplace prayer dispute. Approximately 200 workers reportedly walked
off of their jobs at Cargill Meat Solutions in Fort Morgan earlier this month to protest what they allege were changes made in
times allowed for them to take breaks in order to participate in Islamic prayer.
offers $5,000 reward after raw bacon found on door of Las Vegas mosque. The FBI is offering a $5,000 reward
for information that helps them find the person who put raw bacon on the door handles of a Las Vegas mosque. The FBI
said in a statement Wednesday that agents are trying to find the man seen in a surveillance video putting the meat on the
entrances of the Masjid-e-Tawheed mosque. Authorities call it a desecration of the Islamic worship center. The
Quran, the holy book of Islam, prohibits Muslims from eating pork, and pigs have been used to taunt or offend Muslims.
Congressman: Surveillance of Mosques Could Become 'Disaster' Like J. Edgar Hoover Programs. One of two Muslims
members of Congress warned that increased surveillance of mosques could turn into "the disaster that J. Edgar Hoover's
counterintelligence program was." Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), former chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, told
CNN on Monday that "people in the Muslim community should want this type of surveillance." "If you're looking for the Klan,
you don't go to Harlem, you go where the threat is coming from," King said, defending his call for mosque surveillance.
Reports 'Hate Crime' After Bacon Found Outside Las Vegas Mosque. The Council on American-Islamic Relations
(CAIR) has demanded that federal agents pursue a full investigation after a Las Vegas mosque reported finding bacon on its
door Tuesday morning [12/29/2015]. In a press release titled "CAIR Seeks Hate Crime Probe of Nevada Mosque Desecration,"
CAIR called for "a state and federal hate crime investigation of the desecration" of the Nevada mosque. It noted that
"raw bacon was wrapped on the door handles of Masjid-e-Tawheed in Las Vegas."
Muslim Student Association demands all 'Islamophobic
speech' be punished. The Muslim Student Association at San Diego State University is demanding that administrators
combat Islamophobia by developing a "zero tolerance policy explicitly for Islamophobic speech and actions." The demands,
modeled after similar ones issued by black student associations at campuses across the nation, were lodged after a female Muslim
student was allegedly attacked by a white man in a campus parking lot on the afternoon of Nov. 19, about a week after the
Paris terrorist attacks, which killed 130 people. [...] Several comments on the article expressed incredulity over the attack,
questioning whether it is a hate-crime hoax.

feelings about Islam at all. I certainly don't think we should hate Muslim people, but is it really so unreasonable
to feel slightly apprehensive about the religion itself at this point? Taken literally, Islamophobia means "fear of Islam."
OK, well, there are many Muslims who have gone to great lengths to convince us to fear it. So what if I finally oblige them?
Pass Resolution Condemning Anyone Who Speaks Against Islam. Stephen Coughlin alerted me to a House Resolution
introduced on December 17th, H.Res. 569, "Condemning violence, bigotry, and hateful rhetoric towards Muslims in the United
States.114th Congress (2015-2016)." As of this writing, the country remains clueless about this development. The
resolution was introduced by Virginia Democrat Donald S. Beyer, and sponsored by Frank Pallone, a New Jersey Democrat, and
endorsed by seventy-one other Representatives, most of them Democrats, and possibly a sprinkling of Republicans. The
resolution has gone into committee, but one can predict with confidence that it will emerge virtually unscathed and unaltered.
After all, the "victims" are Muslims, and the House wishes to put it in the record that certain of its members are against hurting
can't blame America for not letting this lot travel to Disneyland — I wouldn't either. Just a family
of eleven, off to Disneyland. A lovely big British family, off to the place where magic happens and Mickey Mouse makes dreams
comes true. They'd saved hard to get together the £9,000 for flights to make their family happy at Christmas. But
were turned away at the gate by ruthless officials from USA Homeland Security who said they were no longer allowed to board.
At least, that's the story you'd be believing if you listened to the BBC or Labour's blond-bobbed maniac Stella Creasy, whinging on
about the obvious discrimination against them on religious grounds.
Muslim banned from Disneyland was self-proclaimed 'Taliban supervisor'. The liberal media was crying foul when
a British Muslim family of ten was suddenly and mysteriously denied permission to travel to America. All they wanted to do
was visit Disneyland! The liberal media was crying that this poor Muslim family simply wanted an all-American vacation, and
they suffered evil discrimination, simply because they were Muslim! At least, that was the story, until today, when it
turns out that one of the banned Muslims said in on Facebook that he was a "Taliban supervisor".

by Homeland Security. A British Muslim father whose planned Disneyland trip was ruined when he and his family
were barred from boarding a flight to the U.S. has now been forced to distance himself from a Facebook account claiming links
to Al Qaeda and the Taliban. Mohammad Tariq Mahmood, 41, his brother and their children, aged between eight and 19, said
they were stopped at the departure gate at Gatwick airport and told their visas to the US had been revoked. He claimed
the family were barred from flying 'because they are Muslim'.
mosque link reason for British family's US travel ban? An American relative of the British Muslim family barred
from entering the US to visit Disneyland has suggested it might have been because he attended the same mosque as one of the
shooters behind the California terror attack. Muhammad Mahmood, who runs a car repair shop in San Bernardino, California,
told the BBC that the US government must justify the decision to exclude his British relatives.

According to the perpetually aggrieved version: the Muslim "family" has spent $9,000 for a joyful "family" Christmas
vacation, before they encountered the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Islamaphobia at the airport. Cue
spontaneous acts of media outrage. How dare the U.S. deny them their right to visit Mickey Mouse? However, what they
don't tell you is the "family" was actually two brothers. Two middle-aged brothers, last name Mahmood, traveling with their
nine kids aged 8 to 19. No moms, no wives, just the two brothers. Oh yeah, and then there's this: [...]

Coalition Responds To Terrorist Attacks By Calling For Massive Muslim Voter Drive. A coalition of U.S.-based
Muslim groups claiming that anti-Muslim backlash is on the rise in the wake of the terrorist attacks in Paris and San
Bernardino hopes to register one million people to vote before the 2016 election as part of a "civic empowerment initiative."
Oussama Jammal, the secretary general of the U.S. Council on Muslim Organizations, also announced in a press conference held Monday
[12/21/2015] at the National Press Club that the group will "seek to increase emergency preparedness for Islamic institutions
and individuals to address the rising number of incidents of hate crimes that are unfortunately happening nationwide."
Islamic activists say 9/11 and San Bernardino were terrible — because of their effects on Muslims.

Playing the victim card. Wild and repeated accusations are being hurled against the GOP of systematic racism, xenophobia,
and, in particular, "Islamophobia." On December 18, 2015, the U.N. hosted two panels under the title "The Changing Dynamics
of Islamophobia and Its Implications on Peaceful and Inclusive Societies." The predominant theme was victimhood. There were
frequent mentions of 9/11, but not of the 2,977 who died, or their families. The alleged victims of 9/11 of interest to the
U.N. gathering were the entirety of American Muslims.
to Manufacture an Anti-Muslim Hate-Crime 'Epidemic'. Step one: Find an expert with an impressive-sounding
academic title to legitimize shoddy advocacy propaganda. Meet Brian Levin. He's the one-man band behind something called
the "Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism" at California State University, San Bernardino. [...] Levin's "methods" of
"analysis"? Stringing together "apparent hate crimes reported in the media and by civil rights groups across the United
States." Most prominent among his sources: the Council on American-Islamic Relations, whose jihad-apologizing frontman
Ibrahim Hooper was quoted by both NBC and The New York Times backing Levin's "research" (which were, of course, based on several
of CAIR's grievance-grifting claims). Cozy, huh? "We're seeing so many of these things happening that it's unbelievable,"
Hooper told the [New York] Times. Indeed, it is.
The Backlash Industry.
Addressing the 10th Anniversary celebration of an Islamic advocacy group, Attorney General Loretta Lynch became the latest
governmental official to warn of an impending anti-Muslim backlash. In the December 3rd speech, which echoed the admonitions
of her predecessor Eric Holder, she took it a step further by vowing to prosecute those who speak or write about Islam in a way that
she does not approve. She described her "greatest fear" as "the incredibly disturbing rise of anti-Muslim rhetoric" and vowed to
prosecute speech that "edges towards violence." [...] The Attorney General's not-so-veiled assault on free speech and common sense ignores
the real assault while instead conjuring up hyperventilated fantasies. In fact, American society has been incredibly tolerant of
both Muslims and even Islamists — so much so that rather than focusing on the growing evidence of violent Islamists living
among them, the majority of Americans seem more concerned about discomfiting their Muslim neighbors or being labeled Islamophobes.
House looks to curb anti-Muslim sentiment. The White House on Monday [12/14/2015] began "staff-level" meetings
and calls with religious leaders to discuss how they could help combat growing anti-Muslim sentiment in the United States.
Valerie Jarrett, senior adviser to President Obama, and Melissa Rogers, who leads the White House Office of Faith-Based and
Neighborhood Partnerships, held a conference call with leaders of all religions from across the country.
Muslim Focus Group: Don't Let Children Watch 'Hateful' GOP Debates. In a focus group with American Muslims on
CBS This Morning, participants told political strategist Frank Luntz that Republicans discussing terrorism was so offensive
that their children could not be exposed to GOP debates. One woman warned: "I actually did a call out to Muslim
parents across the country to not watch the Republican debate in front of their children because I knew that, that —
subjecting our children to hear the hateful stereotyping and the lumping of Muslims with terrorism in front of our children
is actually something that psychologically impacts them."
Muslim detainees can sue Bush-era officials over post-Sept. 11 treatment. Arab and Muslim former detainees who
say they faced harsh jail conditions due to their faith and ethnicity following the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks can pursue a
lawsuit against former top U.S. law enforcement officials, a sharply divided federal appeals court ruled on Friday [12/11/2015].
The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York voted 6-6 not to hear the case again before the entire court, leaving
in place an earlier decision from a three-judge panel. A majority of the court's active judges must approve such a rehearing,
known as an "en banc" review.
Americans struggle with fallout from San Bernardino attack. "It's getting to a point where you have to hide who

address negative perceptions of the Muslim community.

'No-Fly List Is Islamophobia' Poster Boy Arrested in Turkey as Part of ISIS Cell. A man, who just two years
ago was the poster boy for the far-Left media's attacks against the U.S. government's no-fly list for "unfairly" targeting
Muslims, finds himself and several family members sitting in a Turkish prison — arrested earlier this month near
the Turkey-Syria border as members of an ISIS cell. It's a long way from 2013 when Saadiq Long's cause was being
championed by MSNBC's Chris Hayes, Glenn Greenwald, and Mother Jones, and was being represented by the Council on
American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) terror front.
Media Touted As Victim of Islamaphobia Reportedly Arrested in Turkey For Joining ISIS. Saadiq Long, a Muslim
U.S. Air Force veteran who made national headlines after the Department of Homeland Security blocked him from flying to the
Middle East, has been reportedly arrested in Turkey for attempting to join ISIS. In 2013, Long attempted to visit his
mother in Oklahoma from his home Qatar. But when he tried to fly to the United State, he was informed that he was on the
no-fly list. Long managed to visit his mother by driving down to Mexico and flying out there, but the United States blocked
his return for months.

Temple offers help to Muslims amid post-Paris backlash. Amid the wave of Islamophobia stemming from last week's
terrorist attacks in Paris, Muslims in the United States are being offered solace from an unlikely source: satanists.
At least two chapters of the Satanic Temple announced this week that its members would be happy to help any Muslims made
uncomfortable by the recent surge in anti-Islamic sentiment.

New York City Police Department in a decision with repercussions for the federal government's domestic intelligence apparatus.
If the court's decision stands, it may expand the constitutional dimension of the controversy over domestic spying.
Le Pen to go on trial for anti-Muslim remarks. French far-right party leader Marine Le Pen will go on trial for
comparing Muslim street prayers to wartime Nazi occupation, party officials and the prosecutor's office said Tuesday

beliefs," the prosecutor's office in Lyon said.
Stewardess Refuses to Serve Alcohol, Then Plays the Victim. A Muslim flight attendant, Charee Stanley, claims
that she was suspended from her job with ExpressJet Airlines because she refused to serve alcohol. She has filed a complaint
with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) — and now the Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations
(CAIR) has jumped onto the case. So now we have yet another Muslim workplace lawsuit from CAIR — once again designed
to impose Islam on the workplace. This is what they do. Why would a devout Muslim want to be a flight attendant in the
first place, when half your job is serving alcohol?
or... common sense? Let's be clear that Islamophobia is a growing, well-funded, well-"oiled"
industry which is being used as a lethal weapon against the West. As usual, massive confusion is
created around the issues of Islamophobia where young vulnerable Muslim youth are made to believe that they
are targets of an institutionalized hate-mongering campaign against Islam and Muslims. These naïve
Muslims are not informed that Islamophobia was created in the 1990s, when U.S. Muslim Brotherhood groups
decided to "play victim" for the purpose of "beating down critics."
Reporter Tells Truth About Muslims in Michigan: Forced to Apologize. A reporter for a
Detroit TV station got in hot water earlier this week when she mentioned that, given the substantial
Muslim population in the state, "it should not come as a real surprise" if there was a Michigan
connection to Islamic State. The reporter was roundly criticized. Not for stating the
obvious, but because she said the words "Muslim" and "ISIS" in the same sentence.
Imam: Cops Should Have Just Captured Terror Suspect Like an Elephant. An imam who came
before media today to speak on behalf of the family of slain terror suspect Usaamah Rahim protested
that the Joint Terrorism Task Force should have been able to capture the knife-wielding 26-year-old
alive — because you can capture animals alive. Abdullah Faaruuq, of the Mosque for
the Praising of Allah in Roxbury, was removed as Muslim chaplain at Boston's Northeastern University
in 2013. He's advocated for the release of convicted al-Qaeda terrorist Aafia Siddiqui and has
been accused of other instances of encouraging extremism.
No "Obligation" to
Pay Compensation to Ex-Inmates of Guantanamo, Says U.S.. The United States has said
that it has no "obligation", under U.S. law, to financially compensate the six former Guantanamo
inmates who were moved to Uruguay last December. These prisoners were held without trial for
more than a decade at the infamous Guantanamo Bay prison, in Cuba.
Qur'an revealed a religion I did not like. In the West today one must like Islam, or is considered
to have some kind of moral defect. One need not like Christianity or Judaism, or socialism or capitalism or
democracy or communism, but one must like and respect Islam, or you will be considered to be "hateful," "bigoted,"
and "racist," as well as "Islamophobic."
Gitmo Prisoners Demand Reparations from US. A group of former Guantanamo Bay prison
camp detainees have staked out the U.S. embassy in Uruguay in a demonstration meant to pressure the
U.S. government to provide them taxpayer-funded reparations for their time spent in the terrorist
prison, according to Uruguayan officials. Three of the six former detainees sent to Uruguay
following their release from Gitmo have spent days camped in front of the U.S. embassy located in
Montevideo, according to Uruguayan officials and regional reports.
We Believe In Free
Speech, But. [Scroll down] I was reminded of this when hearing Labor's Ed
Miliband promise that if he was elected he would make "Islamophobia" — a phrase
Christopher Hitchens accurately referred to as "stupid neologism" — as an "aggravated
crime." [...] A Miliband type law would mean that a person would be able to disparage any
ideological, theological, philosophical, or political position they wanted, in the most ferocious
terms they wanted, whenever they liked, without ever having to worry about violent retribution from
individuals or legal retribution from the state. But there would be a special dispensation for
a single viewpoint that happens to chafe against the fading liberal values of a Western world.
Families Rally At State Capitol Over Terror Arrests. Dozens of local Somali families

following a walkout and protest by Somali students alleging a pattern of bullying and discrimination
against them. Reports of a fight triggered a lockdown at St. Cloud Technical High School Friday,

Secretary: Administration 'Should Give Voice to Plight of Muslims Living in This Country'. Homeland
Security Secretary Jeh Johnson stressed at the Countering Violent Extremism summit this morning that "we in the
administration and the government should give voice to the plight of Muslims living in this country and the
discrimination that they face." Johnson said he is "personally committed to speak out about the situation
that very often people in the Muslim community in this country face; the fact that there are 1.6 billion
Muslims in the world and that the Islamic faith is one about peace and brotherhood."
Islamic Lobby Groups See 'CVE' Initiative as Unfairly Focusing on Muslims. Ahead of a
three-day White House summit on "countering violent extremism," some U.S. Islamic groups are
expressing concern about the administration's "CVE" initiative, claiming that it unfairly focuses on
Muslims and is tantamount to racial profiling. They have done so despite the administration's
evident efforts to avoid using words like "Islamic" or "Islamist" when referring to terrorism
carried out by people and groups claiming to be motivated by that religion.
'Foist-a-phobia' mainstream media
coined the term 'Islamophobia'. Question: If there is, as Barack Obama and many 'world
leaders' contend, no such thing as Islamic terrorism, how then can there possibly be such a thing
as 'Islamophobia'? All those video-taped beheadings you see on the Net are in your overactive
imagination. Balking, blogging, and speaking out against them in any way, lands you in the
Islamophobia category. Resistance is futile when the mainstream media gangs up with Big
Government against the plebes.
Is a Myth. The blood on the floor of the Charlie Hebdo offices was still wet when
brow-furrowed observers started saying: "Oh no, the Muslims! Will they be attacked?" It's
the same after every terrorist attack: from 9/11 to 7/7 in London to last year's Sydney siege to Paris
today: Liberals' instant, almost Pavlovian response to Islamist terror attacks in the West is to
worry about a violent uprising of the ill-educated against Muslims. The uprising never comes, but
that doesn't halt their fantasy fears.
take NYPD surveillance program to court. A predominantly Muslim community in Paterson,
New Jersey was one of the areas under police surveillance after 9/11. New York Police Department
officers monitored mosques, businesses and schools in what the department said was an effort to root

being violated. Baher Azmy is an attorney for the plaintiffs.
attack on Fresno Muslim center branded 'hate crime' by police chief was done by Muslim former
member. It's odd how police sometimes are very reluctant to use the label "hate
crime," but other times rush to use it. An example of the latter phenomenon took place in Fresno,
Crime as Politics.
In the last few days, the local Fresno community was outraged — or at least was
reportedly to be so — at the vandalism of a local Islamic cultural center. The police
authorities almost immediately, and without waiting for the full evidence to be collected, declared
the minor burglary and damage the apparent dividend of illiberal dark forces. The chief of police,
without compelling evidence, and without explaining why a secular medical building was also trashed
in the spree, rushed to hold a press conference. He declared the broken window and moderate trashing
of the center's interior, not just a "hate crime," but in fact a "brazen hate crime."

the Hub religious center telling the Herald yesterday it's a "double hurt" for his faith. "Our

They are not Islam."
leaders play victim in Oklahoma beheading. Colleen Hufford of Moore Oklahoma may be
dead, but the real victims are Muslims, or so we are being asked to believe. In fact, according to
the Imam of the Islamic Institute of Boston, Islam suffers a "double hurt." And here I thought Ms.
Hufford had it bad. The imam should know, after all, it was his Institute's "resident scholar"
who was reportedly the former imam of the Oklahoma mosque attended by Alton Alexander Nolen, aka
Jah'Keem Yisrael, who wielded the knife separating Ms. H's head from her body. And the leadership
of that Oklahoma mosque agree that they are the ones facing difficulty now that Ms. Hufford is
consigned to the fate an infidel suffers after death.
OK Lawmaker Accused Of Making
Anti-Muslim Remarks. A controversial statement made on Facebook by a state lawmaker has outraged Muslims in Oklahoma.
The Islamic community demanded an apology after a state representative posted on Facebook to be "wary of Muslim Americans" and then

Muslim rights groups is demanding that the Obama administration implement a mandatory retraining
program for all federal, state and local law enforcement officials who may have been subjected to
materials they deem "biased and discriminatory" against Muslims.
filed to remove Muslim-Americans from 'terror watch' list. A local Muslim-American
group Thursday announced it has filed a federal lawsuit based on complaints the government has
unjustly put a disproportionate number of Muslim-Americans on the nation's "terror watch" list.
Dawud Walid, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations Michigan Chapter, says
the lawsuit is not a reaction to a list uncovered last week that showed Dearborn has the second-highest
concentration of people designated by the U.S. government as being "known or suspected terrorists."
Rather, his organization is seeking "remedies" to unjustly putting Muslim-Americans names on a list
that don't belong there.

cities that have the most residents on the government's terrorist watch list is one that stands out
because of its comparatively small population: Dearborn. Dearborn, a suburb of Detroit, was
described by The Intercept, an online news site that reports on issues of national security, as
having the second-highest concentration of people designated by the government as "known or
suspected terrorists." The Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations,
along with other civil rights organizations, will hold a press conference Aug. 8 at Dearborn
City Hall to call for a congressional inquiry into how the government could label Dearborn as such.

people on the suspected terrorist watch list. "We cannot name even one case, one time, where Arab Americans
or a Muslim from the city of Dearborn has committed an act of terrorism," said Dawud Walid, executive director
of the Council on American-Islamic Relations-Michigan Chapter.

You don't have to blow yourself up on a city bus to be a terrorist. If you are on a terrorist watch list, there is

NYPD detains men who had
pressure cookers to 'prepare rice'. Police detained two men at a Midtown hotel late Friday after a doorman reported
they possessed a pair of pressure cookers like those used to make the Boston Marathon bombs. But the men say it was a
misunderstanding: They plan to use the pressure cookers back home to prepare rice, chicken and meat. Mohammad Alotaibi,
20, and Ayoub Alawadhi, 21, pulled up to the InterContinental Hotel on East 48th Street on Friday evening [7/25/2014] with
the pressure cookers in their car trunk, said law enforcement sources.

Remove 'Islamist Extremism,' 'Jihadism' From 9/11 Museum Video. Days before the National
September 11 Memorial Museum opens in New York, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)
is stepping up its campaign to urge organizers to edit a video presentation on al-Qaeda, to remove
terms such as "Islamist extremism" and "jihadism." An earlier CAIR initiative — a letter
last month co-signed by several other Muslim and Arab-American organizations, complaining to museum
directors about what they called "academically controversial terminology" — met with no success.
Museum Refuses to Censor Al-Qaeda Film. Amidst a barrage of controversy and criticism, the 9/11
museum officials stand firm in their decision to air a documentary on Al-Qaeda without censorship of Islam-related
language. [...] The film portrays the 9/11 hijackers as "Islamists" who viewed their mission as a "deadly jihad."
After all, in the words of the hijackers: "[M]any thanks to Allah for his kind gesture and choosing us to
perform the act of jihad for his cause and to defend Islam and Muslims." So, it was the hijackers themselves
that believed they were on a jihadi mission for the cause of Islam.
Ordered to Remove anti-Islamic Film from YouTube. A U.S. appeals court on Wednesday [2/26/2014] ordered Google Inc to remove
from its YouTube video-sharing website an anti-Islamic film that had sparked protests across the Muslim world. By a 2-1 vote, a
panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected Google's assertion that the removal of the film "Innocence of Muslims" amounted
to a prior restraint of speech that violated the U.S. Constitution.
Federal judge tosses out legal challenge
over NYPD surveillance of Muslims. The first legal challenge to the New York police department's blanket surveillance of Muslims in the
wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks has been dismissed by a federal judge in New Jersey in a ruling that lawyers acting for the plaintiffs have described
as preposterous and dangerous. Judge William Martini, sitting in the US district court for the district of New Jersey, threw out a lawsuit brought by
eight Muslim individuals and local businesses who alleged their constitutional rights were violated when the NYPD's mass surveillance was based on
religious affiliation alone.

Wide Range of Critics as 'Islamophobes' in New Report. The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) released a report titled "Legislating
Fear — Islamophobia and its Impact in the United States" on Thursday [9/19/2013]. The report profiles and accuses several individuals, websites,
organizations of being anti-Islamic and spreading so called "Islamophobia" throughout the United States. The controversial organization, that was named an
unindicted co-conspirator in the U.S. government's 2007 Holy Land Foundation trial and reportedly built ties with the current administration is hitting
back at its critics in this report.
Does the Qur'an Teach Hate? On September 11, 2013,
a public information officer for Palm Beach County, Florida named John Jamason posted a message on his personal Facebook page: "Never forget.
There is no such thing as radical Islam. All Islam is radical. There may be Muslims who don't practice their religion, much like others.
The Quran is a book that preaches hate." The Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) immediately complained, and demanded that the
county turn over to them everything that Jamason had written from a county computer over the previous month. [...] Left unexamined in the controversy was
whether or not what Jamason said was true.
Spying on Muslims. The New York City Police Department's indefensible program of
spying on law-abiding Muslims in their neighborhoods and houses of worship has turned out to be even more aggressive than earlier reports had shown. According to a recent
Associated Press report by Adam Goldman and Matt Apuzzo, the surveillance operation designated at least a dozen mosques as terrorist organizations.
The program is hardly "indefensible" since Muslims are responsible for approximately 100 percent of the terrorist attacks in the United States over the
last 20 years.
The Million Muslim Farce. They dubbed the event the "Million
Muslim March." That name has proven toxic, and it's not hard to imagine why. Something about the idea of a million Muslims descending upon
Washington to express their disgust for America and its foreign policy on the anniversary of a day when some other Muslims famously expressed a disgust for
America and its foreign policy by killing thousands of our countrymen in the name of Islam might understandably rub Americans the wrong way. So the
event was rebranded (without altering its intent) as the "Million American March Against Fear."
ACLU: Muslims Face More Scrutiny for Citizenship.
A government program to screen immigrants for national security concerns has blacklisted some Muslims and put their U.S. citizenship applications on hold for years,
civil liberties advocates said Wednesday [8/21/2013].
Muslim group under attack for planning 'Million
Muslim March' set for Sept. 11 in Washington D.C.. Critics say a Muslim group picked the wrong day — Sept. 11 — to march on
Washington to complain about religious profiling and President Obama's handling of an investigation into the terror attacks that rocked America 12 years ago.
The mass demonstration, called the "Million Muslim March," was changed to a more mainstream-sounding event, "Million American March Against Fear," but the name did not

Million Muslim Farce.
"Million Muslim March" organizers insist they scheduled it for 9/11 not to show disrespect but to show a "united front" against terrorism. Don't believe it.
[...] The actual goal of the rally, which is planned as an annual insult, is to muster sympathy not for 9/11 victims, but for Muslims supposedly "victimized"
by the war on terror.
The Crusades Reconsidered. One may condemn the atrocities of the
Crusaders, but what infuriates the objective student of history is that the far greater crimes of Islam are ignored. The Crusades was Christendom finally
fighting back, not always honorably, but against a foe which had plunged Europe into darkness for centuries. Instead we allowed our students to be brainwashed,
and force fed an Islamic line that we have to feel guilty. The Muslims invaded Southern Europe, yet somehow we Westerners are labeled the imperialists.
Stop Force-Feeding Gitmo Hunger Strikers.
On Monday, federal judge Gladys Kessler ruled that she cannot stop the force-feeding of hunger-striking prisoners at Guantanamo Bay because her
court does not have jurisdiction to change policy at the prison near the southeastern corner of Cuba. Currently, approximately 106 of
Guantanamo's 166 detainees are classified as hunger-strikers (reportedly defined as intentionally missing 9 meals in a row), with
about 45 of them currently being force-fed.
On the other hand...
Let Them Starve. Guantanamo Bay
detainees don't want to eat. Muslim rapper Yasiin "Mos Def" Bey is so worked up about their appetite plight that he videotaped himself being
force-fed to build support for closing Gitmo. Cry me a river. This latest round of hunger strikes isn't an international human-rights
tragedy. It's another manipulative act of Jihad Theater.
Holder Warns: Don't
Discrimminate [sic] Against Muslims After Boston. Apparently, granny will still be getting the full pat down experience at the airport instead of

Morning Joe Goes After The Media:
Can't 'Demonize The Entire Religion Of Islam' Due To Radicals. Since the Boston bombing, much of cable news quite naturally
has taken to discussing various issues surrounding terrorism and radicalization. Morning Joe on Wednesday [4/24/2013] was
no exception. Joined by The Daily Beast's Tina Brown, the panel also took a look at media portrayal — stressing that we
can't "demonize" all of Islam when we talk about radicals.
CAIR Lectures US: Boston
Jihadis Weren't Influenced By Islam! In the wake of revelations that the Boston Marathon Bombers were engaged in Jihad, or holy

A Subway Murder and the 'Islamophobia'
Industry. Last Saturday, a deranged woman pushed a man in front of a subway train in New York and killed him, explaining
that she did it because of her anger with Muslims ever since 9/11. Immediately, leftist and Islamic-supremacist writers swung
into action to blame the murder on what they called an "Islamophobia industry," despite the killer's obvious insanity and history of
violent attacks on random people. The attacks revealed much about the use of the term "Islamophobia" as a propaganda tool
designed to shut down thinking.
to Exempt Muslim Women from TSA PatDowns?. The Council on American Islamic Relations is calling on Homeland Security Secretary
Janet Napolitano to come to heel and stop the humiliating, invasive, intrusive pat-downs of Muslim women. Napolitano said
"adjustments will be made where they need to be made," and particularly for Muslims, "there will be more to come," whatever that means.
The Editor says...
Allow me to state the obvious: Instead of exempting the Muslims and searching Henry Kissinger, it would make far more sense to
search only the Muslims, since all the hijackers, shoe bombers, and underwear bombers in the last eleven years have been Muslims. But
that would make too much sense, and the government would never stand for it.
When burqas become accessories
to crime. As David J. Rusin points out in his detailed survey of these crimes, Muslim garb holds two great advantages
over other forms of disguise. First, plenty of covered women walk the streets of Philadelphia without criminal intent, thereby
providing cover for thieves; the more head coverings around, the more likely it is that head coverings will facilitate criminal activity.
Second, the very strangeness and aloofness of these garments affords their wearers an extraordinary degree of protection. As in
other cases (notably a farcical purchase of alcohol in Toronto liquor stores by a 14-year-old boy in a burqa), clerks so fear being
accused of racism or "Islamophobia" that they skip established methods, such as asking a niqabi to establish her (or his) identity.
disguised as Muslim women, hit banks in Philadelphia. A string of bank robberies, carried out by people
disguised in traditional Islamic woman's garb, has prompted concerns among religious, government and law enforcement
officials in the Philadelphia area. The robberies, at least five since December, were carried out by people
wearing full-length robes and veils to hide the hair and part of the face, according to some surveillance tapes
broadcast by local stations in Philadelphia. Muslim leaders fear use of the disguises could put Muslim women in
danger or make them objects of scrutiny.
The Editor says...
Yes, the Muslims are the "objects of scrutiny", and they have brought it upon themselves. I'm surprised a bank robbery like this hasn't happened before now.
Americans are being conditioned to see women dressed in head-to-toe black bags as normal, as if every day is Halloween. If you express any
suspicion about who's inside the bag, you're viewed as islamophobic. The people at my bank don't like it when somebody walks in wearing sunglasses,
so I'm sure they're on full alert when somebody walks in wearing a burqa.
New Jersey Papa John's robbed by hijabis.
Why do criminals don Islamic garb to commit their crimes? Because groups like CAIR and ACLU have established favored status for Muslims and Americans have
been cowered into submission to even look at a person in Islamic garb suspiciously for fear of legal retribution by Muslims or the Dept of Justice.

Ban the Burqa. Back in
November, I reported on a burqa'ed Muslima in Australia, Carnita Matthews, who was charged with making a
false complaint that used the Muslim victimhood card in her defense. "All cops are racist," she

despite the indisputable evidence against her, the burqa'ed civilizational jihadist appealed —

Is Saudi Prince
Steering News Corp. Coverage? [Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal] owns the largest chunk of News Corp. stock outside the
Murdoch family. Shortly after his purchase of 5.5 percent of News Corp. voting shares in 2005, Alwaleed gave a speech that
made it clear just what he had bought. As noted in The (U.K.) Guardian, Alwaleed told an audience in Dubai that it took just one
phone call to Rupert Murdoch — "speaking not as a shareholder but as a viewer," Alwaleed said — to get the Fox News
crawl reporting "Muslim riots" in France changed to "civil riots." This didn't make the "Muslim" riots go away, but Alwaleed
managed to fog our perception of them.

Hijabi Drops Lawsuit After Video Evidence Proves She Lied. A local Muslim woman has dropped her 2015 federal
lawsuit against members of the Dearborn Police Department, whose officers she claimed violated her civil rights by requiring
her to remove her hijab when she was taken into custody on a traffic warrant. The city of Dearborn, which was also
named as a defendant, said in a statement Wednesday that video taken in the police department's booking room during the
arrest "revealed that her claims were false."
Hate in Dearborn: Muslima Drops Lawsuit Against Police After Video Proves She Was Lying. Another
islamofauxbic hate crime turns out to have been committed by a Muslim. Most hate crimes against Muslims, in fact, turn

have to end. And the authorities fall for this virtually every time.

No-fly list used
by FBI to coerce Muslims into informing, lawsuit claims. [Naveed] Shinwari is one of four American
Muslims in a new lawsuit who accuse the FBI of placing them on the no-fly list, either to intimidate them into
becoming informants or to retaliate against them for declining. Filed on Tuesday night [4/22/2014] in the
US district court for the southern district of New York, the case accuses the US attorney general, Eric Holder,
the FBI director, James Comey, the homeland security secretary, Jeh Johnson, and two dozen FBI agents of creating
an atmosphere in which Muslims who are not accused of wrongdoing are forbidden from flying, apparently as
leverage to get them snitching on their communities. Their lawsuit seeks not only the plaintiffs'
removal from the no-fly list but also the establishment of a more robust legal mechanism to contest
placement upon it.

The fact that he left a word out of his English version opens the possibility that the note was

but it also opens the possibility that the whole thing is just another clumsy fake by Islamic
supremacists trying yet again to portray Muslims as victims and thereby deflect attention away

'In the United States, rules on charitable giving have made it harder for Muslims to fulfill their religious
obligation," President Obama claimed during his 2009 Cairo speech. "That is why I am committed to
working with American Muslims to ensure that they can fulfill zakat." This statement contained
two falsehoods. One, as I've previously detailed, was obvious: There are, in fact, no American
laws or rules that make it harder for Muslims to give to charity. What we have are laws against material
support of terrorism — against using devices like charitable fronts to channel money to jihadists.

On Good Friday in Dearborn, Mich., the notorious Koran-burning pastor Terry Jones was jailed and fined for
the crime of refusing to pay a so-called "peace bond" to cover the costs of extra police protection for Jones'

Jones to stay away from the massive Dearborn mosque for three years. This is a restriction on the
freedom of speech and the freedom of expression that Islamic supremacists are certainly going to try to

Senator Dick Durbin's
Deceptions. This morning [3/29/2011] Senator Dick Durbin, senior Democrat of Illinois, is

Judiciary Committee has called for an investigation into claims by American Muslims that they are being

Indignation": There was nothing particularly wrong about Sen. Dick Durbin holding a hearing
today [3/29/2011] on anti-Muslim bigotry. It's just that nobody at the hearing was able to give a particularly
compelling reason for it. Muslim Advocates Executive Director Farhana Khera testified about "a growing
menace" of "rising" bigotry against Muslim Americans. Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez spoke
of the "steady stream of violence" against the Islamic community. The hearing was heavy on anecdotes

Durbin Hearing to Fuel the Muslim Victimhood
Myth. The FBI reports that anti-Jewish hate crimes are nearly eight times more common than
anti-Muslim attacks — yet Sen. Richard Durbin (D.-Ill.) announced last week that he was going
to hold a Senate hearing not on the resurgence of anti-Semitism, but on "anti-Muslim bigotry." For the
truth-adverse Left, it was just another day at the office. Compounding the irony was the fact that as
Durbin announced his plans for this orgy of Muslim victimhood posturing, Islamic jihadists set off a bomb at
a bus stop in Jerusalem, murdering at least one woman and wounding 30, while other Islamic jihadists opened
fire on and killed two Christians who had committed the crime of attending a church in Pakistan.

hearings on Islam. Holding hearings into Islamic "radicalization" is not an exercise in "McCarthyism,"
as widely and deeply misunderstood. That's because the investigative efforts of Sen. Joseph McCarthy, the most
unjustly maligned man in American history, to reveal extensive networks of Kremlin-directed agents seeking the
destruction of the republic isn't "McCarthyism," either. The term, hyper-loaded to invoke Salem,Mass.-esque
"witch hunts" of free-thinking innocents, is a hoax. Documents released from U.S. and Soviet archives prove
that the communist conspiracy of "witches" was, in fact, real.

Social Advocacy Center in Minneapolis, offered something more newsworthy — an indictment
of Ellison himself. Although he didn't identify Ellison by name, Bihi's criticism of local

district and showed up in Somalia as terrorists.

FBI's Los Angeles office employed a convicted felon named Craig Monteilh, aka Farouk al-Aziz, to infiltrate the Islamic
Center of Irvine and other mosques to collect information on suspects linked to extremist groups. The operation

Safoorah Khan, 29, was hired to teach middle-school math in November 2007. According to her lawyer,

running the "math lab." After nine months on the job, Khan requested a three-week leave of absence in
order to perform the hajj — the pilgrimage to Mecca that all Muslims are obliged to undertake at
least once in their lives if they can afford it. Employers are required by law to honor requests for
religious accommodations provided that they do not impose "undue hardship" on the employer or other employees.

Who gets three weeks of vacation time after nine months on the job?
Not really. Let's start with some data. According to the FBI, hate crimes against Muslims

concerted effort by a group of Middle East studies professors to discredit the opponents of the ground zero
mosque, whom they helpfully labeled "rural rednecks," "so-called Christian ministers," and "the Israel

statements ignore a basic fact: no such "wave" ever occurred.

Fake Hate Crimes: An

Happening to American Muslims. Since the events of Sept. 11, we've seen the growth of a
view that American Muslims became prime victims of those terror attacks — isolated, fearful,
targets of hostility. President George W. Bush, who went to Washington D.C's Islamic Center a few
days after the terror assaults, told his audience that Islam was about peace and warned that the nation's
Muslims must be free to go about without fear or intimidation by other Americans — remarks
he doubtless thought were called for under the circumstances.

Fort Hood double standard. The phenomenon is by now well-established. An apparent jihadist
visits death and destruction upon innocents, motivated in part by a violent brand of Islamic extremism, and
soon the violence becomes an apt occasion to raise awareness about the danger of anti-Muslim thoughts, words
and deeds. Violence by Muslims has a unique ability to spur a Canadian prime minister, British royal,
or, as was the case this time, the American secretary of homeland security, to sound the alarm about
violence against Muslims.
Against the Backlash. And that's the drill: concern over crimes that have never happened,
as opposed to the terror that has. So, denying the role militant Islam played in the Fort Hood atrocity
is like staring at a shark bite and thinking, "bicycle." When a fundamentalist kills thirteen innocent
people while shouting "allahu akbar," Islam isn't just a small player — it's got a starring role.
And now that U.S. intelligence admits Hasan tried to contact al Qaeda, it should make it increasingly
hard for anyone to say otherwise.
It Isn't Political
Correctness, It's Shariah. I have watched in abject horror the stunning reaction of elites
in this country to this act of war. The denial, the submission, the excuses, the dodging, the
self-flagellation, the shame, the deceiving of the American people by the media, the military, society, law
enforcement, authorities and politicians, all the way up to and including the White House, amounts to the
enforcement of Shariah law. Shariah law forbids criticism of Islam. And here we are.
shooter becomes the victim. A disturbing story line is taking shape in the wake of the Fort
Hood massacre. Some are trying to explain suspect Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan's motives for reportedly
gunning down 13 people in cold blood by ignoring the ideology of hate that sanctified the killings.
Instead, we're supposed to seek out the "real reasons." It's the typical victimology: Bemoan
the perpetrator's troubles and then sprinkle liberally with pop psychology.
"U.S. Homeland Security officials are working with groups around the United States to head off any possible
anti-Muslim backlash following the shootings at Fort Hood in Texas." ... And President Obama cautioned against
"jumping to conclusions." The backlash trope is trotted out after every episode of terrorist violence.
But it is as false as it is dangerous.
years after 9/11, where's the Islamophobia? The dust hadn't settled from the trade towers before it was
pronounced from sea to shining sea that Islam was a religion of peace, and that Islamophobia was sure to run rampant
in the streets, a sin we were all warned to guard against. But like global warming, which has as yet failed to
materialize in spite of so much fervent belief in its coming, Islamophobia never actually took root.
is a fabrication. I've been considering a request from a post-graduate student who wants to do a
thesis on Islamophobia in Australia. She writes: "I am researching the topic Islamophobia, and I
am trying to prove whether Islamophobia is based on religion fear or cultural fear of Islam." What
about proving that Islamophobia exists at all? That would be the logical, ethical and scholarly
charged for Tinley Park hate crime. A southwest suburban woman has been charged with a hate
crime for an alleged attack on a Muslim woman at a grocery earlier this month. Amal Abusumayah was
paying for groceries at the Jewel store at 17117 S. Harlem Ave. in Tinley Park on Nov. 7 when
she felt a sharp tug on her headscarf. When she looked at who had pulled her hijab, she saw a woman
who moments before had made a derogatory comment about Islam.
Stop Using the Word 'Islam' in Reports
on Terrorism, Islamic Bloc Says. If the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) had its way, media

Nations to have the "defamation" of Islam outlawed, this week voiced criticism about media coverage of recent

racism. The case law — for decades, beginning with Brown v. Board of
Education — prohibits "invidious" discrimination: it classifies people into different

justification. It is not only rational but proven by more than a decade of terrorist attacks that
increased screening of Muslim males at airports is necessary to the safety of other airline passengers.

Discrimination against American Muslims: Myths and Realities. A groundbreaking study published
late last week investigates the skyrocketing trend of employment discrimination claims filed by members of the
American Muslim community and finds that repeated assertions of a post-9/11 backlash against Muslims in the
workplace are pure fiction. The report by Jeffrey Breinholt of the International Assessment and Strategy
Center, "Muslim Employment Discrimination: A Legal Examination", goes so far as to conclude that these
discrimination claims have correlated closely with the rise of Islamic terrorism directed at the US.

firestorm of controversy that surrounded the ultimately unrealized plans of an obscure Florida pastor to burn
a few copies of the Qur'an was truly remarkable, without any analog in the modern world. If Terry Jones

much less threatened to set off a firestorm of righteous indignation.
Islam and the American
Public. The major attribute of the 9/11 attacks was shock. They came out of nowhere —
literally from a clear blue sky. Only a handful in the intelligence community had any clear idea of what
was involved. For the rest of the country, surprise and bewilderment were the rule. Under such
circumstances, any tendency toward mob action, lynch law, or xenophobia would have burst forth immediately.
No such thing happened.

Keith Ellison's Bigotry. This morning [3/10/2011], Rep. Keith Ellison (Democratic-Farmer-Labor

whata-buncha-nasty-bigots Americans are. He chose as his case in point Mohammed Salman Hamdani,
a Pakistani-born Muslim American who rushed to lower Manhattan on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001,
to assist in rescue efforts, and died in the collapse of the World Trade Center.
Understanding Keith Ellison.
It's weird watching Minnesota Fifth District Rep. Keith Ellison take his place on the national stage in
opposition to Peter King's hearing on homegrown Islamic extremism this week. Yesterday he played
his role to the hilt in his testimony at the hearings, turning on the waterworks in the conclusion of his
testimony. The Star Tribune was duly impressed.
The tears of a clown.
Yesterday, Democratic Congressman Keith Ellison started crying during Republican Congressman Peter King's
hearing on Muslim radicalism. Ellison was describing the death of Mohammad Salam Hamdani, a Muslim
killed on 9/11, when his voice began to crack. I was watching the hearing at home, and I instantly felt
sorry for the guy. Here he was defending his faith and those who hold it, and it was overwhelming.

As the world has seen recently, militant Muslims on several continents don't

taught the BBC or the New York Times to be more polite to evangelical Christians or Orthodox Jews?
wars: There is no question that these cartoons are offensive to many Muslims. They
offend against a convention in Islam that the Prophet should not be depicted. And they offend
because they can be read as equating Islam with terrorism: one cartoon has Muhammad with a bomb for his
headgear. It is not a good idea for newspapers to insult people's religious or any other
beliefs just for the sake of it. But that is and should be their own decision, not a decision
for governments, clerics or other self-appointed arbiters of taste and responsibility.

and the United American Committee, held a panel discussion about the riots that engulfed parts of
the Middle East and Asia last month over a Danish newspaper's publication of cartoons satirizing
the Prophet Mohammed.
How vast is the chasm between the West and
Islamists. At first I sympathized with your anger at the Danish cartoons because it's
impolite to trample on other people's religious symbols. But as the rage spread and the issue
grew more cosmic, many of us in the West were reminded of how vast the chasm is between you and
us. There was more talk than ever about a clash of civilizations. We don't just have
different ideas; we have a different relationship to ideas.
Cartoon Riots: Colossal Muslim
Mistake. The cartoon riots are a colossal Muslim mistake. They have exposed Islam's
mortal weakness to the world: that it is so insecure it can't take the heat of ridicule. Instead
of being confident, assured, and fearless, Muslims through their pathological outrage over some cartoons
in an obscure Danish-language newspaper, are proclaiming to the world their lack of confidence, lack of
assurance, and fear.

one faith resorted to violence, threats and rage like unruly savages; the other was civil, responding
(if at all) with letters to the editor, calls for a boycott and many public denunciations.
wars: Occasionally moral clarity comes with something quite simple, like political
cartoons. These riots impress upon us an objective truth: the "clash of civilizations"
is more than a conflict between peoples; it is between the 21st and the 7th centuries; between a God

interpretation, and a God who offers man grace, along with the freedom to choose or reject it,
reserving judgment for Himself on another day.

the American news media's response to it, I thought, surely at least a glance at one or two of these mild
