    The sign is clearly poking fun at Donald Trump, but unless people driving on Interstate 94 in metro Detroit speak Arabic — or have a buddy who can translate — they’ll be scratching their heads. . . . “I chuckled,” Dawud Walid, executive director of the Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, told the Detroit News. “I laughed. Duh. This is how people feel in the community. It’s mocking Trump. It’s funny yet very appropriate considering the nonsense Donald Trump has continued to say about Muslims.”

    She fled for her life after getting death threats in Syria. Now journalist Rowa Alkhatib has landed a plum job as a talk-show host with Sweden’s national radio broadcaster. She tells The Local Voices how she’s now helping quench Arabic speakers’ thirst for knowledge about their new home. Back in Syria, Rowa Alkhatib worked as a presenter for a range of television and radio networks, but threats from radicals and the Assad regime forced her to pack her bags, she says. Like so many others in Syria, she made her way to Turkey, where she found radio work and lived...

    ( -- Arabic is the fastest growing language in the U.S., with the number of Arabic speakers growing by 29 percent between 2010 and 2014, according to a recent study by the Pew Research Center. Over the longer period from 2000 to 2014, the number of Arabic speakers in the U.S. nearly doubled, rising from 615,000 in 2000 to 1.1 million by 2014, according to the study, which analyzed data from the U.S. Census Bureau. As a result, census questionnaires will be available in Arabic for the first time in 2020, Pew reports. “The number of people ages 5 and...

    Arabic is the fastest-growing language in American households — and that’s leading the US Census Bureau to explore the tricky task of adjusting its questionnaires to ­accommodate the language’s right-to-left script. The bureau is using focus groups to explore possible changes to the 2020 census questionnaires for Arabic speakers who are not English-proficient, the Pew Research Center reported Friday. Arabic is now the seventh-most commonly spoken non-English language in US households. An estimated 1.1 million people ages 5 and older speak Arabic at home, an increase of 29 percent between 2010 and 2014.

    [Original title too long: What the media didn’t tell you about Arabic-speaking Muslim student who got kicked off Southwest Airlines] The mainstream media went ballistic after learning that an Iraqi student was removed from a flight after an alleged ‘Islamophobic’ woman reported him because she heard him speaking Arabic. Left wing pundits and Muslim advocacy groups demanded to know why “speaking Arabic” is a reason to remove someone from a plane and were calling for boycotts of Southwest Airlines. What the media conveniently left out is that the (see-something-say-something) woman is a native Arabic speaker and said he was talking...

    Officially, Sweden doesn't keep a record of the languages its inhabitants speak. That fact was infuriating to Mikael Parkvall, a linguist at Stockholm University, so he decided to find out for himself. What is the most popular non-Swedish language in Sweden? After poring over various statistics and studies, Parkvall came to a conclusion: Arabic was very likely to now be the second most popular language in the Scandinavian country. Parkvall's study focused on native languages rather than second languages, which he says are a better judge of what languages are actually spoken in a country (while English is widely spoken...

The school welcomed its inaugural class of 88 kindergartners and 44 pre-kindergartners with an assembly in the cafeteria. The kids wore their school uniforms, green-and-white polo shirts embossed with the school’s calligraphic logo. They learned their new school song. They recited the Pledge of Allegiance and the Texas Pledge. Alicia Kahn, whose 5-year-old daughter Maiara attends the school, described the mood as “positive and upbeat.” Outside, though, she said it was “mayhem.” A small crowd...

    A new Israeli television channel called "i24news" that will go out in English, French and Arabic is to begin broadcasting by summer this year, it said on Tuesday. The channel, which is based in Jaffa Port just south of Tel Aviv, aims to rival global news outlets like Al-Jazeera and France 24, its executives say. i24news "will broadcast news from the heart of Middle East," the channel said in a statement. "The letter 'i' was chosen as representing several of the topics and values that will guide the channel: international, information, independent, individual, innovation, interactive, etc. The number 24, of...

    Madness. Your taxpayer dollars at work to advance Islamic culture: a culture, by its very nature, designed to destroy all others. They are at war with us. Would school students in 1944 have recited the Pledge in German? Mark Steyn discussed this very thing when we were fighting an Arabic public school in Brooklyn here in New York City, in my interview with him. "It shows how we mischaracterized, we willfully misunderstand Islam. Yes, on the face of it, yes, Arabic is a language. In a sense there would be no difference between opening a foreign language school -- a...

    Fury is brewing at Rocky Mountain High School, in Colorado, after a multicultural student group were encouraged to recite the Pledge of Allegiance over the loudspeaker in Arabic - replacing ´one nation under God´ with ´one nation under Allah´. Following Monday´s pledge, Principal Tom Lopez has been inundated with complaints from outraged parents concerned that saying the Pledge in any language other than English is unpatriotic. Standing by his controversial decision, Principal Lopez has said that despite the irate telephone calls and emails, he is not in any way or form trying to push an

    It feels strange visiting a country like Morocco and listening to people extol the virtues of a political system my country waged a revolution against. Morocco has a king, and he’s a real one too, not some kind of a figurehead. But I went there, I listened, and after almost ten years of visiting Middle Eastern countries wracked by tyranny, terrorism, botched revolutions, and wars, I was perhaps a bit more willing to hear what they had to say than I might have been a decade ago. A monarchy is a tough sell for Americans. The founders of our country...

    A Malaysian Sultan has issued a fatwa prohibiting non-Muslims from using the word "Allah" in Arabic. The Sultan of the Malaysian state of Selangor, Sharafuddin Idris Shah, issued the prohibition on Tuesday, according to the Lebanon Debate newspaper. Malaysian media have reported that the prohibition has been put in place by the Islamic leader because it is a "sacred word," and should be reserved exclusively for Muslims, according to MidEast Christian News. The sultan has ordered the Islamic Council of Selangor and the Islamic Affairs Department in the state to take strict action against all groups that question the fatwa...

    I analyzed this video in three ways. First I examined the video itself to determine what was happening and where. Second I wanted to determine what was being said to see if I could determine if there was any clear evidence of pre-planning or coordination. This prima facie evidence was available to our government on September 12th, Benghazi time and September 11th, U.S. EDT. If there is evidence of pre-planning or coordination in either the video itself, or in the spoken word of the terrorists, it would be obvious that our government has either been lying to us all along...

    CORPUS CHRISTI, TX (Catholic Online) - On the Commonweal magazine blog, Michael Peppard posted an article entitled "Pope Benedict: 'May Allah bless you all!" While it is unquestionably true that the Holy Father gave a blessing Arabic, he did not say "May Allah bless you all!" as Peppard states. Peppard says in his article that there is only one word that could have been used by the Pope, and that word was "Allah." But in fact, the whole article is built on a faulty premise.  There are other words that may be used to refer to God other than Allah,...
