    National Review ^ | 2-21-11 | Charles C. Johnson
    Instead of censuring Bassam Frangieh for his support of terrorist organizations, the college administrators regard him as a major asset. Claremont McKenna College is a nationally recognized leader in training Defense Department officials and State Department personnel (including numerous ambassadors). Professor Bassam Frangieh is head of Claremont McKenna’s Arabic Department and Middle East Studies program, where he teaches tomorrow’s diplomats about the Middle East, plans study-abroad programs — and supports recognized terrorist groups, namely, Hezbollah and Hamas. In the wake of Hamas’s election victory in 2006, Frangieh told an interviewer that he looks to Hamas with “great joy” and supports...
  • ISNA Conference Again Features Conspiracy Theories

    SNIPPET: "For the second consecutive year, the Obama Administration honored the annual conference of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) with a prominent official to speak on behalf of the President. And, for the second consecutive year, that conference featured false and radical dogma about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and purported Jewish "power" over America."

    Logans Warning ^ | February 24th, 2010 | Christopher Logan
    While most of us do not see the threat, or just do not want to admit the problems that Islam brings to non-Islamic countries, Islam continues to advance in America. In this latest stage of Islam on the move, this school is offering only two majors. Arabic language and Islamic law and theology. The last thing that this country needs are more pro-Sharia Muslims. Sharia needs to be officially banned, and then any Muslim that calls for it afterwards shall be arrested or deported if possible. Those that want Sharia do not belong here, and are to be looked upon...
  • ‘Access to Guns,’ Not Jihad, to Blame for Ft. Hood, Says Noted Islamic Scholar (barf alert)

    Imam Zaid Shakir came to speak at my school, Claremont McKenna, on December 9th to respond to the “tragedy of Ft. Hood.” Rather than respond to the massacre of American servicemen, Shakir spent the evening indicting the United States – saying “we were born in genocide.” The reason for the Ft. Hood Massacre, according to Shakir? Not jihad or Islamic fundamentalism, but the “pervasiveness of violence in our society” and because of Americans’ “easy access to guns.” Zaid Shakir – Final [1] from The Claremont Conservative [2] on Vimeo [3]. For those wondering who Mr. Shakir is, he’s the go-to...

    THE WEEKLY STANDARD ^ | 12-11-09 | Emily Esfahani Smith
    Zaytuna College, which plans to be the first accredited Muslim college in the United States, is set to open next fall in Berkeley, California. The college has been hailed as a victory for moderate Islam, a place to promote religious understanding by "blending traditional Islam and American culture and establishing a permanent place for the religion in American society," according to the Chronicle of Higher Education. But Zaytuna College may not be as moderate as it seems--or moderate at all. The college's founders, Hamza Yusuf Hanson and Zaid Shakir, are similarly lauded as even-keeled Muslims who, according to the Chronicle,...

    Islamic College U.S. Debut by: Deborah Lambert, May 21, 2009 Two American Muslim scholars are prepared to launch the “first four-year accredited Islamic college in the U.S., what some are calling a ‘Muslim Georgetown.’” FoxNews.com reported that American-born Muslim converts Imam Zaid Shakir and Sheik Hamza Yusuf “have spent years planning the school, which will offer a liberal arts education and training in Islamic scholarship.” The foundation for the college is the Berkeley-based Zaytuna Institute founded in 1996 to promote “classical Muslim scholarship.”...

    Islam in Action ^ | May 17Th, 2009 | Christopher Logan
    Recently I have posted articles ranging from showing that American Muslims are not assimilating and forming their own communities, to Muslims openly calling for jihad just blocks away from Ground Zero. As long as they go unopposed they are going to continue to move forward with their agenda of an Islamic USA. Now two prominent American Muslims are close to finalizing their plan to open an Islamic College right here in America. The school will be lead by two Islamic scholars, the first being Sheik Hamza Yusuf, who in the past had made this statement.

    Imam sees Islam as "tool kit" for fixing Western woes By: Matt Burnard Posted: 10/22/08 "Yes, al Qaeda is an Islamic organization," affirmed Imam Zaid Shakir to a group in Logan Hall on Tuesday night, "in the sense that it is an organization associated with Muslims." But Shakir was anxious to divert the audience's attention to "the very real question of whether such an organization actually exists, or whether the U.S. has created 'a legal fiction' to justify rounding up those involved in 9/11." Speaking as part of Penn's Islam Awareness Week, Shakir, an American convert to Islam and scholar...

    Minarets tower over two of the tallest roller coasters in the world, on the flyer announcing today’s big event at Six Flags’ Great Adventure & Wild Safari.  On this day, the park will be “transformed,” as thousands of Islamists from across the northeast come together in Jackson, New Jersey for "The Great Muslim Adventure Day."  Regrettably, Muslims will be the only ones having fun, as non-Muslims have been told that they are not welcome. The event, which also goes by the name "Muslim Youth Day," is being sponsored by the New Jersey chapter of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA),...
