    President Barack Obama delivered an extensive denunciation of a 'crude and disgusting' anti-Islam video made in California, telling the United Nations that 'it is time to heed the words of Gandhi' and declaring: 'The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.' Obama strongly condemned the protests that spread across the Middle East and the murder of Chris Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya, branding them 'an assault on America'. But he stated that the unrest and murderous attacks were the result of the low-budget video, which had 'sparked outrage

    Anti-Islam videos posted earlier this year sparked only a shadow of the lethal rage over the “Innocence” film, indicating that Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups have been behind inciting violent Muslim demonstrations and terrorist attacks. All of the videos, seen below, were produced professionally, but the extremely amateurish “Innocence of Muslims” video that has been cited by media as the cause of the past week’s Muslim rage already has recorded more than 10 million clicks. Veteran journalist and former Newsweek senior editor Arnaud de Borchgrave wrote this week that the blame for the violence is not the “Innocence” video...

    If you‘re looking to spread God’s love, it’s probably not a good idea to show up to the Arab International Festival in Dearborn, Michigan, with a pig‘s head on a stick and signs telling Muslims that they’re poised to burn in hell. Yet this is exactly what happened over the weekend when some Christians from an anti-Islam group showed up at the event and confronted Muslim adherents with some unwelcome messages. One of the protesters yelled, “You’re going to burn in hell,” among other sentiments. The signs the individuals held were less-than-covert in their messaging as well. One read, “Islam...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) – US Attorney General Eric Holder was Tuesday to meet with religious leaders from across all faiths to discuss ways to stem a wave of attacks against Muslims and mosques.

The 4:00 pm (2000 GMT) meeting comes as an evangelical church in Florida vowed to press ahead with plans to burn a Koran on Saturday, to mark the ninth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks....

    A coalition of US Muslims launched a Web-based campaign Monday aimed at countering what they called a rising tide of anti-Islamic sentiment and to show themselves as Americans who love their country. The group launched a website and online video featuring brief clips from American Muslims, including young children, with comments such as "I'm an American," and "I don't want to take over this country." The campaign is in response to the controversy over plans to build an Islamic center near the site of the World Trade Center in New York destroyed in the September 11, 2001 attacks. The group...

    Rights experts attack Islam defamation drive at UN Wed 17 Dec 2008, 15:33 GMT By Robert Evans GENEVA, Dec 17 (Reuters) - The United Nations should stop passing resolutions, largely promoted by Islamic countries, calling for laws against "defamation of religion", according to international experts on freedom of expression. The four experts -- from Africa, Europe, Latin America and the United Nations itself -- said such laws were often used to shield religious leaders from criticism and to suppress religious minorities and non-believers. "International organisations, including the United Nations General Assembly and Human Rights Council, should desist from the further...

    Cologne is bracing for violence this weekend as far-right supporters from all over Europe gather for an "anti-Islamification congress" and rally defending the continent against an "immigrant invasion." Those attending the event starting Friday in the west German city include Filip Dewinter, head of Belgium's far-right Vlaams Belang party, and Andreas Mölzer, the Euro MP once ejected from Austria's Freedom Party for being too extreme. Also adding his support to what organisers call Europe's "shared, thousand-year history", identity and "Western values and Christian traditions" will be Mario Borghezio from Italy's anti-immigration Northern League.

    The planned construction of over 180 mosques in Germany is mobilizing right-wing xenophobes but also an increasing number of leftist critics. They fear the Muslim places of worship will facilitate the establishment of a completely parallel society. ... the media reported "turmoil" and an "enraged" audience in a school auditorium in Ehrenfeld, a district of the German city of Cologne. The mood was almost comparable to that of the protest gatherings once held against nuclear missiles or reactors. Instead the outrage was directed at a huge mosque planned for the area. Still, the words used by the project's opponents called...

Today, the company hosts seven million domain names.

    War has been declared on Christians, Jews, non-Muslims and secularists worldwide by Islamic extremists...simply because we are infidels according to their belief. As Islamic fundamentalism spreads its tentacles worldwide, it is crucial for the people of the Western world to understand the danger, know what to expect, and know what to do about it. Threats and realities of forced conversions to Islam, beheadings, torture and murder are quickly becoming commonplace. They’re rarely mentioned in the news and when they are, it’s with a disclaimer…the word “insurgent” has replaced the truth of “terrorists.” Political correctness is killing us. This Is The...

But Oriana Fallaci made them her watchwords and combined them with a brutal honesty.

It was her abundant rage and pride that in the last years of her life...

The Washington Post said she reacted after overhearing the group utter an Islamic greeting of peace. Charging documents allege McVey shouted, "Islam doesn't mean peace, it means killing everyone for peace" and...

    Why we can never lump anti-Islamism or Islamophobia with racism & general bigotry. Without condoning violence of any kind, let's not have a blurry picture on the most understandable feelings in the west. Whether it's in Denmark, Netherland, Russia, UK, Australia or US, heck! even France, we can not let the unique intolerance to those that are intolerant to all of us be lumped into 'any racism' or just 'any bigotry'. What's different about Islamophobia than "general pure racism" that there are so many ( http://thereligionofpeace.com ) serious LEGITIMATE reasons (global victims) behind anti-Islamism. It has more to do with...
