Most protest signs were professionally made and bore the stamp of the group being represented. Speakers called for revolution world wide against war and Islamophobia

    Pavlov had a dog. The Organization of the Islamic Conference has the United Nations and President Obama. The OIC, the largest voting bloc at the UN, has an agenda. Their agenda is a one-two punch. First, don't say anything negative about Islam. Second, blame all of the world's problems on Israel, specifically the Jewish communities called "settlements." The UN's and Obama's conditional responses to all things Islam and Israel are helping throw the OIC's one-two punch at the world hard and fast.For over a decade, the OIC has systematically worked to criminalize the "defamation of Islam" and to protect Islam...
  • Canadian Islamophobia Hysteria Reinforced by Media’s Muslim Brotherhood Propaganda

    03/16/2011 6:18:09 AM PDT · by Michael van der Galien · 6 replies
    The Islamophobia panic, heightened by Peter King’s congressional hearings on radicalization, has spilled over into Canada. Leftist media outlets like CNN have substantial influence on public discourse, and now, the publicly funded Canadian broadcaster CBC has decided to make the hearings a top item on its daily program “As it Happens.” The program’s approach seeks to undermine the credibility of the hearings and add to the Islamophobia hysteria spurred on by the Muslim Brotherhood. First, the CBC omitted a statement from King’s opening words that: “the overwhelming majority of Muslim-Americans are outstanding Americans and make enormous contributions to our country.”...

    Islamophobia was invented to silence those Muslims who question the Koran and who demand equality of the sexes. By Pascal Bruckner At the end of the 1970s, Iranian fundamentalists invented the term "Islamophobia" formed in analogy to "xenophobia". The aim of this word was to declare Islam inviolate. Whoever crosses this border is deemed a racist. This term, which is worthy of totalitarian propaganda, is deliberately unspecific about whether it refers to a religion, a belief system or its faithful adherents around the world.

The FBI’s latest compendium of US hate-crimes data suggests far more plausibly that the answer is no. “Where ordinary Americans meet Islam, there is evidence that suspicion and hostility are growing,’’ the Time article said. “To be a Muslim in America now is to endure slings and arrows against your faith — not just in the schoolyard and the office but also outside your place of worship and in...

I have a couple of her books in the stack, but haven’t had time to read recreationally in years. Not because she’s a fellow vet, though that would be a good enough reason. Not because we agree politically. As I understand, she’s quite liberal, and I’m a militant anarchist. I come to defend her because she’s right. In dumbed-down America, being right is a social crime.

    (Oct. 21) -- NPR has fired longtime news analyst Juan Williams after he told the Fox News Channel that he gets nervous when he sees Muslims on airplanes. Williams appeared on "The O'Reilly Factor" on Monday, and host Bill O'Reilly asked him what he thought about the idea that America is facing a "Muslim dilemma." The Fox News personality caused a stir recently on ABC's "The View," when co-hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg walked off the set to protest his comments blaming Muslims for the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

    Tuesday, October 12, 2010 By Patrick Goodenough (CNSNews.com) – Spurred by the controversies over Quran-burning and the planned Ground Zero mosque, the most visible Islamic advocacy organization in the United States says it is launching a department to deal with “Islamophobia.” In doing so, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is following the example of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), the 57-member bloc of Islamic states. The OIC set up an “observatory” five years ago to monitor and report on incidents and trends around the world it regards as amounting to “Islamophobia.” CAIR, which calls itself “America’s largest...

    A warning against Islamophobia A threat to burn the Koran by a fringe American religious denomination, controversy over a proposed mosque near the scene of the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York and assaults on Islamic symbols in European countries have been a major talking point for Muslim nations. Normally strong allies of the West have spoken out at the UN against the growing religious tensions. Many were embarrassed by comments by Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad linking the US government to 9/11, diplomats said. But Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, emir of Qatar, who has launched Western-backed diplomatic...

    On a late summer evening, Omar Rivera stumbled over to a local mosque, clutching a beer bottle in his hand and looking for a place to answer nature’s call. He chose the Al-Imam Mosque and proceeded to urinate around its exterior, where there were apparently some Muslim prayer rugs lying around. Omar had committed what was a fairly commonplace act of vandalism in the city, public urination. When suddenly he became the poster child for the rise of a “New Islamophobia”. Along with a drunken liberal arts student who slashed a Muslim cabbie, the media transformed poor Omar into the...

    So here was the scene yesterday … The POTUS lecturing the American people about being tolerant … Muslims worldwide burning American flags and Israeli flags with impunity while shouting chants like “Death to America.” … Ah, must be September 11th. Because that’s what seems to happen these days on the anniversary of an event that Muslims worldwide celebrate with vigor: Muslims wreak havoc around the globe, and we Americans get lectures about how intolerant and Islamophobic we are. And to add insult to injury, the president from whom these condescending lectures come has surrounded himself with characters who have openly...

    TIME Magazine is partnered with CNN. Both happen to be the airport's favorite 'news' vehicles for bombarding travelers with liberal media bias. As CNN ratings plummet, we detect a heightened sense of desperation from Time's last-gasp efforts to sell issues of their rag. First, their cover depicting ‘Islamophobic' America and now their childish ‘anti-Zionist’ dust jacket.Ignoring sensationalism and rubbish is usually the best practice.

They also suddenly start bragging about all their charitable deeds in the community. Yeah, well: Al Capone started the first soup kitchen, too. Exhibit A: A plan by the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC) to build an Islamic school in Edmonton has revealed the startling, and openly-admitted link between MAC and the anti-Semitic, jihadist movement known as the Muslim Brotherhood, as outlined in this highly detailed, comprehensively...

    Here is a reality check to keep in mind when someone issues another condemnation of Islamophobia in the Western World. Surely, we have plenty of room for improvement, but we are pikers at the game of religious discrimination. In many Muslim countries, discrimination against Christians and Jews is not just practiced, it is codified into law. Thus, consider Egypt, which is one of the more secular and moderate countries in the Muslim World with a sizable religious minority of Coptic Christians. Egyptian law stipulates that a "Muslim man may marry a Christian woman but the opposite is forbidden; and if...

He's also reportedly a Christian.... He's got to remember how a theology of anti-Semitism led to a history of pogroms that ultimately led to the Final solution."...
