    A man shouting “Allahu akbar!” at a Paris screening of Joker was detained by police after the outburst caused moviegoers to panic Sunday night. The incident was reported by Le Parisien, which noted that the 34-year-old man was removed from the Grand Rex theater and placed under psychiatric observation. According to a witness, the man first started repeatedly shouting “It’s political!,” at first drawing laughs from the audience. Soon other audience members were asking him to “shut up” while others grew worried, the witness said. After the shouts of “It’s political,” the man stood up, placed his hands on his...

    Visual timeline project traces 'underlying Islamophobia' in war on terror Sep 11, 2019 by Aysha Khan, Religion News Service Justice On the 18-year anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks that set off the ongoing global war on terror, a new visual timeline seeks to document the U.S. policies and programs that Muslim and civil rights activists say have resulted in major encroachments on human rights. "The goal is to really underscore how the war on terror is so rooted in Islamophobia and to really lift up the story of the ways that Muslims have been impacted," said Maha Hilal, a...

    Qasim Rashid, an Ahmadi Muslim who is running as a Democrat for the Virginia State Senate, is enraged at the dirty tricks of his opponent, Richard Stuart. “My Republican opponent,” fumed Rashid in a video last week, “is launching anti-Muslim, Islamophobic attacks against me questioning my loyalty to the United States and questioning my ties with terrorism, I mean just the most ridiculous, meritless claims that are imaginable.” What did Stuart do to warrant these charges? Why, the racist, bigoted Islamophobe had the temerity to quote Rashid’s own words. Rashid, according to WMAL, “posted a screenshot on Twitter of one...

  • Jihadi Stabs Three Canadian Soldiers, Canadian Court Sends Him to College

    The Ontario Review Board, the top court in Canada’s most populous province, struck a strong blow against “Islamophobia” Monday when it granted permission to a young Muslim named Ayanle Hassan Ali to attend Mohawk College in Hamilton, Ontario. Surely only venomous Islamophobes would want to deny an enterprising Muslim the opportunity to better himself, right? After all, all Ayanle Hassan Ali did was stab three Canadian soldiers and explain that Allah told him to do it. How could anyone deny this fine young man a place at Mohawk College? Stop worrying, you Islamophobe. The Canadian Press reported that Ali had...

    A new study from Deakin University is shedding some light on why highly qualified migrants like Mr Karimi are having trouble breaking into the job market. The study found the education levels of Muslim migrants improve when they have higher English skills. However, their employment prospects do not. Doctor Cahit Guven, the economics lecturer who led the research project, said this is not the case for non-Muslim migrants. "If you compare, you know, a non-Muslim immigrant with better English skills to another non-Muslim immigrant with lower English skills, we find that they actually have much better labour market outcomes, which...

What’s the difference? CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR officials have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror.

The UN declared its intention to become closer with the OIC years...

    A St. Paul City Council member is being urged to resign for past anti-gay posts on Facebook. Gay advocates from Minnesota's Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party are presenting a resolution Sunday at the party's convention in St. Paul asking for Kassim Busuri to resign. The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports Busuri was appointed to represent Ward 6 in January. Busuri says his Muslim faith does not support homosexuality and that criticizing his previous posts amounts to Islamophobia. [SNIP]

    The Philadelphia Police Department has pulled 72 officers off their regular duties as authorities investigate inflammatory social media posts revealed in a database that found thousands of offensive postings by current and former officers, the city's police commissioner said Wednesday. Police officials in Philadelphia are describing the action as the largest removal of officers from the street in recent memory. "We are equally as disgusted by many of the posts that you saw and in many cases, the rest of the nation saw," said Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross. It is the latest fallout since the advocacy group The Plain...

    Craig Hicks Sentenced to Life for Killing Three Neighbors (Part 2) JUN 17, 2019 10:00 AM BY HUGH FITZGERALD The campaign by Muslims to rewrite Hicks’s history, to de-emphasize his obsessing over parking and noise and to claim, without the slightest evidence, that he was “anti-Muslim,” has succeeded. “It was a bias crime” has become the accepted narrative. On the day of his sentencing, District Attorney Santana Deberry said: “There was no plea offered to Craig Hicks today. There was no negotiation with him. His hate of Islam drove him to kill three innocent people. He gets no deals. He...
  • Britain's Back-Door Blasphemy Law

    The long-running dispute revolves — most recently — around an effort by the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on British Muslims, a cross-party formation of around two-dozen MPs in the British Parliament, to institutionalize the definition of Islamophobia in racial rather than religious terms. The proposed definition has been opposed by many Britons, including British Muslims, who warn that it would effectively shield Islam from scrutiny and valid criticism. "We have here a clash between two very different ways of viewing a society: broadly individualism and collectivism.... In a collectivist society the aim is for the rulers to determine how...

    A proposed law in Canada will result in Christians muzzled. Meanwhile Islamists (including those tied to terrorists) get government funding. These days we wake up every day to disturbing news in both the U.S. and Canada. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) recently released a report titled: Hijacked by Hate: American Philanthropy and the Islamophobia Network in which it claims "hate groups" have used American charities to propagate a message of anti-Muslim bigotry. According to this report, any critique of Islamism and Islamist activities is deemed racism and bigotry (i.e., "Islamophobic"). This includes any and all legitimate...

    Ibrahim Hooper, call your office: there was an outbreak of “Islamophobia” Monday at the Pennsylvania State Assembly. Luckily, Muslim state Rep. Movita Johnson-Harrell was there to blow the whistle on this bigotry and hatred. The “Islamophobia,” according to journalist Todd Starnes, was committed by another state Representative, Stephanie Borowicz, who prayed this to open a legislative session: “Jesus, you are our only hope. At the name of Jesus, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess Jesus, that you are Lord.” Johnson-Harrell was livid. The prayer, she declared was “highly offensive to me, my guests, and other members...

    Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib said on Sunday that Islamophobia is a problem on both sides of the aisle in Congress. The remarks from the Michigan congresswoman who, along with Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, is one of only two Muslim women in Congress, came during a discussion about criticism directed at Omar over accusations of anti-Semitism regarding her controversial comments about Israel, including her assertions of its influence on U.S. foreign policy. "I pause and think to myself 'is it because she's a black American and she's Muslim?' And so that's where I pause and say to myself, 'Is there an...

    PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Police are now investigating whether child weddings are being conducted at a Philadelphia mosque after a sexual assault victim comes forward to Action News. In a Facebook video posted two weeks ago, one of the alleged victims describes her ordeal. She's 17 now but says she first became a child bride at 14. "At the time I was a virgin. It was going to be my first marriage of course," said the teen. She says it didn't last. And in 2016, she says she was married off to Rajmann Sanders, a man more than twice her age...

    The US House of Representatives will vote Thursday on a measure originally drafted to condemn anti-Semitism, but later expanded to include other forms of bigotry, including white supremacism and ‘Islamophobia’. The House’s Democratic Majority Leader, Steny Hoyer, said during a closed-door meeting of Democratic lawmakers Thursday that the symbolic resolution “opposing hate will be voted on today,” an aide said, according to AFP. The bill is finally being brought to a vote after bitter debate amongst Democratic members of the House over how to respond to a string of controversial comments by Democratic congresswoman Ilhan Omar of Minnesota. Omar has...

    “I know that Flying While Brown has always been a concern. But now Landing While Brown is also frightening.” So says Khaled Beydoun, a Muslim who claims he was victimized on and after a Delta flight last week. An interesting detail of the story is that Beydoun is a key “Islamophobia” propagandist: he is "Associate Professor of Law at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law and Senior Affiliated Faculty at the University of California-Berkeley Islamophobia Research and Documentation Project," according to his bio. He is the author of a book entitled American Islamophobia: Understanding the Roots and...

    <p>No, it’s not the progressives. Many on the left are true cop-haters from the get go. A prime example of how the left detest police (unless they become victims of a crime and squeal like the cowards they are) occurred during the recent Ontario election campaign. Gurrant Singh, brother of federal NDP leader Jagmeet Singh, was a star candidate for the NDP. It was revealed he once carried a sign in a demonstration that read “F**K the POLICE.” Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath saw nothing wrong with that. Neither did the rest of her radical caucus.</p>
