  • Islamist Front CAIR Calls Bill to Support 9/11 Families “an Anti-Muslim Attack”

    Islamist Front CAIR Calls Bill to Support 9/11 Families “an Anti-Muslim Attack”The Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) bill might seem like commonsense to most people. The legislation would change “the federal criminal code to permit civil claims against a foreign state or official for injuries, death, or damages from an act of international terrorism.” Therefore, American citizens would be able to sue foreign governments/officials for acts of terrorism.

Speaking to those considering joining the protests, she said: “Do not follow those who have called the rallies. Because all too often they have prejudice, coldness,...

The American Freedom Defense Initiative purchased space next to 228 clocks in 39 New York subway stations for ads with an image of the burning World Trade Center and a quote attributed to the Quran saying: “Soon shall we cast terror into the hearts of the unbelievers.” The clocks are suspended from ceilings above subway platforms in stations across the city.

    If the point of Sen. Dick Durbin's Tuesday hearing on anti-Muslim discrimination was to undermine Rep. Peter King's hearings on Muslim radicalization, it ended up achieving the opposite -- and highlighting exactly why King's investigation is so necessary. For the last few years, a few small but vocal groups claiming to represent American Muslims have stoked fears that hate crimes against Muslims are a growing epidemic, despite the fact that FBI statistics show nothing of the sort. In fact, anti-Muslim hate crimes have actually dropped since their height right after 9/11. Claims of rising Islamophobia allow certain Muslim "spokesmen" to...

    The battle over plans to build a mosque near the site of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York is fuelling a surge in anti-Muslim protests across the US, including opposition to new Islamic centres from California to Georgia. Religious leaders and civil rights activists warn that a tide of Islamophobia that has swept the country since the destruction of the twin towers is being heightened by political exploitation of the New York dispute before nationwide elections and is increasingly bound up with hostility to immigrants and other forms of racism.

They say the cartoons are protected under the First Amendment. The posters put up last month in the St. Cloud area depicted images such as the Prophet Muhammad engaged in bestiality and an Islamic crescent with a swastika inside it. Some in the community say there should be legal consequences. But the chief prosecutors in both counties where the cartoons were found said they must be considered free speech.

Since then, anti-Muslim views have been encouraged by a continuing string of terror attacks, including decapitations,...
