  • Donald Trump Becomes First President In Two Decades To Not Host A Ramadan Dinner

    Breaking with tradition, the White House under President Donald Trump did not host an iftar dinner, the meal Muslims eat to break their daily fast during Ramadan. The dinner, which has been often attended by prominent members of the U.S. Muslim community, began in 1996 during former President Bill Clinton’s White House tenure and continued through the subsequent Bush and Obama administrations. Trump and first lady Melania simply issued a brief statement Saturday that offered “warm greetings” to Muslims celebrating Eid al-Fitr, which marks the close of Ramadan, Islam’s holy month of fasting.
  • Trump just ended a long tradition of celebrating Ramadan at the White House

    In the early days of December 1805, a handful of prominent politicians received formal invitations to join President Thomas Jefferson for a White House dinner. Whatever Jefferson could have foreseen for the young country’s future, it appears the modern-day White House tradition of marking Ramadan with an iftar dinner or Eid celebration has come to an end. Ramadan, which falls on the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, started on May 27 this year and ends at sundown Saturday. Muslims around the world will mark the end of the holy month by celebrating the holiday Eid al-Fitr, the “feast of...

    Abdul El-Sayed played football at his suburban Detroit high school. He was pretty good, so he was always double-teamed. In his first game after the 9/11 attacks, opposing players hurled insults at him. “Go home.” “Raghead.” That sort of thing. In the blink of an eye, he recalled, “I went from being a chubby kid with a funny name to being a very stigmatized minority.” Naturally, he was angry. He took a swing at one of the taunters. “The coach pulled me out of the game and said, ‘Listen, you’re going to be Abdul El-Sayed for the rest of your...

    The same Trump so many liberals criticized for hating Muslims was given a welcome fit for a king by 50 Muslim leaders, all while knowing the US president loves the Zionist idea of the right of the Jews over their historic ancestral homeland, Zion, and their ancient capital Jerusalem. In his own way, Trump apparently understands the Middle East more than all the Middle East analysts and political advisors. In this region, leaders respect the strong and despise a leader who weakens his allies. Arab leaders appreciate his standing with Israel because they know that by doing so he will...

    The U.S. Green Party has put out a briefing paper for party activists instructing them to work with the Council on American-Islamic Relations and other Islamists in fighting “Islamophobia” and “oppression in all its forms.” According to the document, “Islamophobia” is a “contrived fear or prejudice fomented by the existing Eurocentric and Orientalist global power structure” and should be treated as a type of racism.

  • VA Gov. McAuliffe panders to Muslims

    This past Friday, I visited a mosque in Sterling, VA to meet and hear from members our Virginia Muslim community. After a week of seeing hateful and divisive rhetoric coming from our executive branch, I thought it was important to make sure that those who might feel targeted right now know that the views of President Trump don’t speak for all of us. So today I’m asking you to sign your name to tell our every member of our Muslim and refugee community that they are welcomed in Virginia! I want members of our Muslim community to know that we...

    In his January 10 farewell speech, President Obama cited “violent fanatics who claim to speak for Islam.” That was the only mention of Islam in the speech, and the outgoing president kept his record intact. For the past eight years, the most powerful man in the world has refused to connect Islam with any act of terrorism against the West in general or the United States in particular. The terrorists themselves do everything but take out an ad on the Super Bowl to trumpet Islam as their motive, but that has no effect on the president. In early 2015 the...

    he Council on American-Islamic Relation, a Muslim group that is unlikely to wield the kind of power over the Donald Trump administration as they did over the current president, is calling on Trump to dis-invite Rev. Franklin Graham from Friday’s inauguration ceremony. In a press release, CAIR said that Graham was a “notorious Islamophobe” who had no business speaking at the event. “If President-elect Trump truly seeks to unite our nation as he promised in his acceptance speech, he will limit the list of those offering prayers at the inauguration to religious leaders who work to bring us together, not...

    A Georgetown University associate professor had a month-long meltdown after a Muslim woman explained why she voted for President-elect Donald Trump. Asra Q. Nomani, a former Georgetown journalism professor and Wall Street Journal reporter, wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post Nov. 10 explaining why she, as a Muslim woman and “long-time liberal,” voted for Trump. “I support the Democratic Party’s position on abortion, same-sex marriage and climate change,” Nomani wrote. “But I am a single mother who can’t afford health insurance under Obamacare.” C. Christine Fair, a previously “friendly colleague,” went on a 31-day screed against Nomani spanning across Twitter...

    Washington, D.C. Imam Abdul Alim Musa discussed the results of the U.S. presidential election in his November 18 Friday sermon at the Al-Islam Mosque in the city. The Zionists have "created a 'Hitlerian' environment in the U.S," said Imam Musa. He accused "the Zionists" of carrying out the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center and framing the Muslims, and of treating the Palestinians "exactly like the Nazis treated the Europeans." The sermon was posted on the YouTube channel of Imam Musa's As-Sabiqun organization. The Arkansas-born imam is the director and founder of As-Sabiqun and of the Islamic Institute of...

    The most shocking thing about talk of Keith Ellison’s Israel record as he rises within the Democratic Party is how few think it’s shocking. Rep. Ellison, D-Minn., is a leading contender for the chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee, despite a record of tough criticism of Israel that pro-Israel insiders say would easily have disqualified him a decade ago. A supporter of the two-state solution and a frequent visitor to Israel, he also voted against additional funding for Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile system in 2014. In 2009, Ellison spear-headed a letter from 54 Democrats to Presdient Obama urging him to...

    President-elect Donald Trump is not proposing a “registry based on a religion,” his incoming chief of staff Reince Priebus said Sunday, adding that people from countries posing terrorism concerns would be temporarily barred from entry into the U.S. “until a better vetting system is put in place.” Asked on NBC’s “Meet the Press” whether he could “equivocally rule out a registry for Muslims,” Priebus replied, “Look I'm not going to rule out anything, but I wouldn’t — we’re not going to have a registry based on a religion.” He continued that “there are some people, certainly not all people,” who...

    Senior Hamas official Mahmoud Zahar has suggested that US President-elect Donald Trump is secretly a Jew. In an interview with Al-Jazeera earlier this month, translated by MEMRI, Zahar said that “Trump loves the Jews, and not only because he likes the Jewish religion. I do not rule out the possibility that he is a Jew.” “He loves the Jewish religion,” Al-Zahhar continued, “and the most important thing in the Jewish religion is Jewish money.” Zahar then went on an antisemitic rant, saying that Harry Truman was bought by $2 million in “Jewish Money” and therefore recognized the State of Israel....

    President-elect Donald Trump's team said today that he had never advocated for "any registry or system that tracks individuals based on their religion" -- despite statements in the past that may be at odds with that. "President-elect Trump has never advocated for any registry or system that tracks individuals based on their religion, and to imply otherwise is completely false," Jason Miller, Communications Director of the Presidential Transition Team, wrote in a statement. "The national registry of foreign visitors from countries with high terrorism activity that was in place during the Bush and Obama Administrations gave intelligence and law enforcement...

    I am back in the US and will be voting for Mr. Trump early next week in Maryland. My [half] brother Barack Obama is a big disappointment. Why did he not come home to Kogelo [the family village] on his visit to Kenya last year? Why did he not provide for the family when they came to see him in Nairobi? (They experienced extreme hardship and left immediately after the dinner). Why did he not support Auntie Zeituni [President Obama’s late half aunt, who lived for a decade as an illegal immigrant] in America? He claims to be advocate for...

    Hillary Clinton. According to a survey published on October 13, 2016, by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), more than 70% of Muslim American citizens are likely to vote for Hillary Clinton on November 8. Only 3% support the Republican candidate Donald Trump. The majority of those who participated in the survey (62%) consider the Republican Party hostile to Muslims, but only 2% think this of the Democratic Party.This opinion seems to be shared by the terrorist group Daesh, since, in a video republished by the American information website World News Daily Report on October 14, 2016, the group’s second-in-command,...
