  • Judge dismisses lawsuit of “Clock Boy” Ahmed Mohamed’s dad with prejudice

    The Gellar Report ^ | 3/21/18 | Pamela Gellar
    Jihad scammers rightfully tossed out of court. You remember “Clockmed,” aka Ahmed Mohamed. Mohamed took apart an LCD digital clock and stuck it in a box. What he put together resembled a homemade bomb. Even though he admitted it looked “suspicious,” Ahmed brought it to school. When teachers and school administration officials became concerned for the safety of the students, they walked into Clockmed’s trap. Ahmed played the Islamofauxbia victim to the hilt. Lauded by President Obama, the Pope, 97 world leaders, the UN, hailed by NYC Mayor Bill deBlasio, who declared “Ahmed Day,” he became an enemedia icon and...

    The residents of Sungai Buloh, Selangor were greeted with an unwelcome guest when a wild boar sneaked into the neighborhood’s mosque on Tuesday night. A mosque-goer was injured by the wild boar amidst the ruckus at Masjid Jamek Sungai Plong. The mosque’s imam Ungku Ahmad Hazwan Ungku Kamarudin said that the incident happened as worshippers were performing additional prayers after Maghrib prayers. “Our mosque was visited by a male wild boar who had gotten lost in the mosque’s grounds. It subsequently started chasing mosque-goers and children in the grounds. It then went into the mosque and we could see that...

    There were 546 reported incidents of Islamophobia in Spain in 2017, according to a report released Friday by the Citizens’ Platform Against Islamophobia (PCI). […] The most frequent type of incident cited were those of “defamation, slander, and libel,” in which Muslim men were accused of being “violent, sexist, chauvinists, pedophiles, backwards, intolerant, or terrorists,” while Muslim women were characterized as being “submissive, oppressed, ignorant, or backwards.” The second leading category of incidents was those of discrimination or negation of rights. The report used the European Union’s definition of discrimination, citing it as the “conduct, action, or omission by which...
  • Antifa Disrupts LGBT Parade; Claims Gay People Are Offensive To Muslims

    Whether we agree with their beliefs or not, Gay Pride Parades (for the most part) are well… gay. Happy. Bright. Enthusiastic and peaceful. They march around with rainbow flags, wear really weird clothing, and tell everybody how proud they are to be gay. Annoying? Most certainly, especially if you feel as though they’re shoving an agenda down your throat. But these marches tend to keep it fairly peaceful. When you start putting Sweden, Muslims, and Antifa into the mix, however, you have a recipe for disaster. Recently in Stockholm Sweden, a Gay pride event was held that caused a bit...

    As Canada continues to support and implement Sharia Law, as well as slam its opponents by calling them "Islamophobes," a deeper look into what Sharia Law entails is in order. Recently, the Canadian government's Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage completed a draft of its Motion M-103 report, which recognizes "the need to...condemn Islamophobia" and "take action" against "religious discrimination including Islamophobia." According to the Ontario Human Rights Commission Islamophobia includes "acts of intolerance and racial profiling" as well as "viewing Muslims as a greater security threat on an institutional, systemic and societal level." However, it is not clear that Canada's...

    Two Michigan residents attended a BRIDGES meeting hosted by the Detroit office of the FBI recently that left them stunned by the level of Islamist infiltration at the Bureau.BRIDGES is a quarterly FBI outreach program that stands for Building Respect in Diverse Groups to Enhance Sensitivity, whereby the FBI hosts workshops for law enforcement and various immigrant communities. They’ve been held in Boston, Detroit, Houston and Minneapolis-St. Paul and some city police departments host similar meetings on their own, without the FBI in attendance.According to the FBI website, BRIDGES “brings together members of diverse communities and state, local, and federal...
  • The Curious Progressive Love of Islam

    The Catholic Thing ^ | December 29, 2017 | David Carlin
    Among present-day American leftists (who prefer calling themselves progressives), a curious characteristic is their sympathy for Islam. They deplore what they call Islamophobia, regarding it as a sin as bad as racism or sexism or homophobia or transphobia; and they are horrified that a man they consider to be an Islamophobe, Donald Trump, should be in the White House. Why is this sympathy for Islamic “curious”? Because no religion could be more at odds with progressive ideas than Islam. For one thing, Islam believes in God, an all-powerful God who controls everything in the created world. Progressives, on the other...

    Asim Krasniqi watches anxiously as the Adriatic Sea creeps ever closer to his beach bar in Albania, a country faced with an alarming pace of coastal erosion. “I’m nostalgic for how this place used to be,” the septuagenarian told AFP wistfully, remembering when this beach in Qerret, to the west of the capital Tirana, was bigger and “many more” foreign tourists came. “Today everything is degraded,” he said.

    A week or so ago I was banned (again!) by Facebook for critical comments I made about Islam. I was reported by a Muslim female called Farnaz Javed. This Muslimah frequently carries out Islamic Da‘wah on a Facebook discussion page called "The Great British Political Debate." In other words, she does very little politics; and what politics she does do is always connected to Islam in some way. I've been reported -- and subsequently banned -- by Facebook before, either by Muslims or by their left-wing enablers. Indeed, I've been previously banned after debating with this very woman. I also...

    From Mississippi to Ontario, adults and children alike are being fed the most grotesque of lies. It's happening all over North America – including places you might think were too remote to even conceive of such activities. Take Missoula, Montana, where the local newspaper, the Missoula Current, reported last April on a group called Standing Alongside America's Muslims (SALAM), formed a year earlier “to push back against a rising tide of Islamophobia.” The Current report on SALAM, as it happened, appeared two weeks to the day after the deadly suicide bombing in the St. Petersburg, Russia, Metro, by an affiliate...

    I unapologetically choose America first, national sovereignty, protected borders, the meritocracy, and unrestricted freedom of speech without which there is no other freedom. What do Islamophobia and Voter Suppression Have in Common? Predictable cries of Islamophobia are heard after every terrorist attack even when jihadis screaming “Allahu Akhbar” (Allah is greater) make it irrefutable that they are killing in the name of Islam. Leftists and their apologists ignore this obvious fact and instead steer the discussion to Islamophobia. So what is Islamophobia? A phobia is an extreme or irrational fear of or aversion to something. Islam is a set of...

    On Wednesday night I kept my midweek date with Tucker Carlson on Fox News to discuss the politico-media framing of the latest Islamic terror attack. From Media-ite:On Wednesday night, Tucker Carlson and Mark Steyn slammed NBC News for a headline they put out hours after the terrorist attack in New York City.That's because their stupid headline was ringing twelve-year-old bells. But Media-ite pretended to be shocked by my objection to it:"NBC's headline is actually saying, 'We care more about a hypothetical attack on Muslims that never comes, we care more about that than, say, for example the five dead Argentines...

    Reporting on the extraordinary turnout for the "Rosary on the Borders" prayer campaign in Poland, the Associated Press (AP) suggested that the event smacked of "a problematic expression of Islamophobia." On-the-ground sources said that over a million Poles turned out Saturday to pray the rosary along the country's 2,000-mile border for the salvation of their country. [Snip] The AP wasn't the only mainstream media outlet to take issue with the overtly Christian commemoration, which was openly supported by Poland's prime minister, Beata Szydło. The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) called the rosary prayer "controversial," suggesting that the event could be seen...

    A radical group linked to rogue billionaire George Soros has been providing scripts containing anti-Trump talking points for constituents to read aloud during congressional town hall meetings. One of the scripts distributed by the Revolutionary Love Project encourages town hall participants meeting with their member of Congress to accuse the Trump administration of – wait for it – “xenophobia, racism, and Islamophobia.” Constituents are urged to use those precise words to “forcefully condemn” President Trump’s immigration and border security initiatives, Aaron Klein reports at Breitbart News. Information about the scripts came as leaked audio from anti-Trump activists associated with the...

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau suggested that some of the opposition to Islamophobia legislation was an example of sexism. It could not be further from the truth that sexism is in any way involved in opposing MP Iqra Khalid’s anti-Islamophobia motion M-103. A private member’s motion was passed in March by female Member of Parliament Iqra Khalid, that identified a “public climate of hate and fear” in Canada and demanded that Islamophobia be treated as a hate crime and be subject to prosecution under the Canadian criminal code. Scrutiny and criticism of any religion has never been deemed a crime...

    Prosecutors in the southwest German city of Saarbrücken are investigating an Iran-born AfD politician over accusations that she made Islamophobic statements. A prosecutor’s office spokeswoman said on Wednesday that AfD politician Laleh Hadjimohamadvali — a candidate in the upcoming national elections — is suspected of defamation of religious groups, as well as incitement to hatred. Hadjimohamadvali was born in Iran and has said that she fled to Germany to get away from Islam in the 1980s after the 1979 Iranian Revolution led to the establishment of an Islamic Republic. According to the Saarbrücker Zeitung, Hadjimohamadvali said during a party gathering...

    Boston has launched a new public service campaign to fight Islamophobia by offering the public ways to address aggression toward others because of their appearance or beliefs. The campaign launched Monday involves 50 posters that provide a step-by-step guide to handling when someone is being harassed. They will be posted on bus stop benches and other public places around the city. Titled "What to do if you are witnessing Islamophobic harassment," the posters encourage people to engage with the person who is being targeted and to draw attention away from the harasser. The technique is called "non-complementary behavior," and...
