    When I was 16, a Texas police officer pulled me over and said "it's people like you that are ruining this country. Go back to your country." People who speed, I thought? Girls who are late for figure skating practice? I wasn't sure what he meant. What country was I supposed to go to? I was born and raised in Austin. Then, it dawned on me. It was a month after 9/11, and he meant Muslims. Islamophobia is widespread. In the 15 years that have followed the Sept. 11 attacks, many Muslim or Middle Eastern Americans have been repeatedly...

    The DCLeaks document dump exposes the pro-Islamist Left's sinister attempt to slime truth-tellers about Jihad. Radical left-wing billionaire George Soros developed a strategy five years ago to publicly disparage, delegitimize, and marginalize conservatives like David Horowitz who go to great pains to warn Americans about the threat posed by political Islam and the ongoing Islamization of the U.S. It is part of the Left’s push to create an alternate reality in which world temperatures claimed to be rising at an imperceptibly slow rate pose more of a threat to mankind than militants flying commercial jetliners into skyscrapers. Soros is a...

    The British Broadcasting Service (BBC) – a public broadcaster funded by a “TV licence” fee forced on UK television owners – has declared that resistance to Shariah law is “Islamophobic”. According to a news clip, BBC online coverage, and the comments of its reporter Catrin Nye, a man called “Paul” approached a BBC film crew while recording an interview with Islam campaigner Ruqaiya Haris. Ms. Haris, a Muslim activist and student at the School of Oriental and African Studies, is told by Paul, “There’s no Sharia law here”. Her and Ms. Nye’s reactions to the statement made freely in...

    WASHINGTON -- I see that CNN is calling upon the good offices of Mr. Potato Head to refute Donald Trump's evisceration of Hillary Clinton in his speech last Wednesday. Mr. Potato Head is very indignant that Peter Schweizer has written a book, "Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich," demonstrating that a pattern of corruption exists in the relationship between The Clinton Foundation and the Clinton State Department. He says that pattern of corruption does not establish the Clintons' guilt. Well, an author can only do so much....

    On the day that the Justice Department and the FBI released first a sharia-compliant redacted version of the Orlando jihadi’s declaration of allegiance to the Islamic State — and then, after a torrent of criticism, finally released the unredacted version — the U.S. front group for the jihad terror group Hamas, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), released a new hate report laughingly labeled “Islamophobia.” At a press conference announcing the report, Hamas-CAIR’s Ibrahim Hooper kicked off with the bismillah, the same prayer the Orlando jihad mass murderer Omar Mateen recited as he slaughtered scores of nightclub revelers in Florida...

    Instead of announcing a program to teach young Muslims why they should reject the understanding of Islam held by the Islamic State, al-Qaeda, and other jihad groups, the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) held a press conference Monday to unveil its latest cynical and deceptive report on “Islamophobia” in the U.S. The whole “Islamophobia” enterprise is designed to intimidate people into thinking there is something wrong with opposing jihad terror, and this new report is no different. A few seconds of thought would expose the deceptiveness of it to anyone, but Hamas-linked CAIR is banking on the fact that...

    Muslim leaders were in unison at the United Nations this week arguing that the West was hiding behind its defense of freedom of speech and ignoring cultural sensitivities in the aftermath of anti-Islam slurs that have raised fears of a widening East-West cultural divide. A video made in California depicting the Prophet Mohammad as a fool sparked the storming of U.S. and other Western embassies in many Islamic countries and a deadly suicide bombing in Afghanistan this month. The crisis deepened when a French magazine published caricatures of the Prophet. Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said it was time to...

    Britain risks "flames" of racial and religious conflict because of a "liberal self-delusion" over the impact of mass immigration, the former head of the equality watchdog Trevor Phillips claims today. In a startling assault on decades of official multiculturalism and diversity policy, the founding chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission argues the UK is being allowed to "sleepwalk to catastrophe" by leaders too "touchy", "smug", "complacent" and "squeamish" to talk about race. Drawing a direct parallel with Enoch Powell’s notorious "rivers of blood" speech, he likens Britain’s politicians, media and educated elite in general to the Emperor Nero...

    Recently, on the MSNBC "Morning Joe" show, presumptive Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump reiterated his desire to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the United States. Why this fear of Islam and Muslims? Liberal talk show host Bill Maher recently said that the more a person knows about Islam, the more he fears Islam. The essence of Islam is to subjugate, oppress, forcibly convert or kill Kafirs (non-Muslims). This follows from the Islamic scriptures, the Koran, The Hadith (sayings and deeds of Mohammed), and the Sira (the biography of Mohammed). The Koran calls on Muslims to emulate Mohammed: the short paperback...

Their effort only proves once again that however bad the facts, some people remain so sectarian that they will continue to blame everything except the problem for the problem (‘How dare that bigoted polling company discover our dirty laundry?’) But in some ways the Phillips piece is most important for what he himself admits. Among other things Phillips confesses that Britain has for years been telling itself a lie in relation to its Muslim populations – not least in pretending that they...

And we pretend that we’re not. And now it’s out in the open and can’t be ignored any longer.” He has, of course, nothing to say about the possibility that Trump’s supporters could be favoring their candidate because of his apparently strong stance against jihad terror attacks and the endless threats of mass murder and destruction from the Islamic State.

I should have known better.” Phillips comments: “Some of my journalist friends imagine that, with time, the Muslims will grow out...

The recent emergence of PEGIDA UK — of which Mr. Weston is one of the leaders — is the latest reaction to Britain’s repressive political culture.

    I believe that Islam is a false religion and Muhammad is a false prophet. I also believe that Islamophobia is real.Let me explain why these two points are not mutually contradictory.As a follower of Jesus who affirms the Bible as God's Word, I do not believe Muhammad received revelation from God since the information he allegedly received contradicts fundamental truths of the Bible.Muhammad's revelations were therefore demonic, not angelic, and since the Quran denies that Jesus is the Son of God and denies that He died for our sins and rose from the dead, Islam is an antichrist religion and...

    Poster Boy for 'Islamophobia' Tries to Join ISIS Muslim supposedly placed unjustly on No-Fly List belonged there after all. November 25, 2015 Robert Spencer Saadiq Long was framed, I tell ya. Set up by The Man for the crime of being Muslim. Back in 2012 and 2013, the Leftist/Islamic supremacist axis was working hard, wanting you to weep for Saadiq Long. MSNBC's Chris Hayes, hard-Left activist Glenn Greenwald, and the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) all pitched in to make Long a martyr of "Islamophobia" and howling at the injustice done to him. But they aren't howling so...

    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. His story got considerable media attention when his CAIR media representatives here pushed...
  • Obama declares Islamophobia a felony hate crime | Satire?

    Dan Miller's Blog ^ | November 23, 2015 | Dan Miller
    Phobia is an abnormal, irrational fear. As now defined, however, Islamophobia is merely "prejudice against, hatred towards, or fear of the religion of Islam or Muslims." Rational "Prejudice," "hatred" and "fear" of Islam are, therefore, now Islamophobic.Obama often proclaims that there is no reason to fear Islam --  the religion of truth and love -- and that He welcomes it in His America. It is permissible, indeed even patriotic, to fear and oppose the Non-Islamic Islamic State, but to fear and to oppose Islam runs counter to American values and is, therefore, worse than merely vile. By virtue of His constitutional...

  • Stephen Coughlin says Muslim Brotherhood is above the law [video]

    USA Transnational Report ^ | November 11, 2015 | USA Transnational Report
    Stephen Coughlin is a decorated intelligence officer and an expert on the Muslim Brotherhood and their infiltration of the United States government. In the video below, Coughlin explains how the Muslim Brotherhood is "above the law in America." Coughlin also mentions the Brotherhood's extensive cooperation with George Soros and his vast network of NGOs (in this case, London-based Article 19). Why is this so? For one reason, the FBI is partnered with the ADAMS (All Dulles Area Muslim Society) Center. Another reason is PSD-11, the secretive Presidential Security Directive that instructed the U.S. government to partner with the Muslim Brotherhood....

    An atheist professor said Tuesday that it's acceptable to criticize Christians but not Muslims, because he does not "fear" retaliation from Christians. "I know what keeps me from critiquing Islam on my blog is just fear," Phil Zuckerman said at a discussion on religious liberty at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. "I've got three kids. "So I know I can say anything about Christianity or Mormonism, and I'm not living in fear, which is a testament to Christianity and Mormonism, and that's wonderful. Thank you," said Zuckerman, who is a self-described atheist and professor of secular studies at Pitzer College...

    You’ve no doubt heard about the “clock boy”—the 14-year-old Muslim student who brought a self-made clock to school to show to his teachers and was then detained by police on the suspicion that the clock might be a bomb.The media pounced on the story as a classic case of Islamophobia, the president complimented Ahmed Mohamed on his “cool clock” and invited him to the White House, and just about everyone agreed that the young bespectacled clock maker was a boy genius. Offers of scholarship money poured in from giant social media companies, and the Cambridge Public Library, which might...
