    Washington Free Beacon ^ | March 27, 2024 | Adam Kredo
    The United States' top intelligence agency wants to ban its spies from using "biased language," including the terms "radical Islamists" and "jihadist," saying these words "are hurtful to Muslim-Americans and detrimentally impact our efforts as they bolster extremist rhetoric," according to a language guide published internally. FreeBeacon The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), which is responsible for handling the country's spy apparatus, seeks to ban a range of common terms because it says they offend Muslims and foment racism against employees. In addition to terms describing Islamic terrorists, ODNI instructs employees to avoid phrases such as "blacklisted,"...

    President Joe Biden marked the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks by criticizing Americans for the anti-Muslim anger that occurred in the United States after the attacks took place. “We also witnessed the dark forces of human nature. Fear and anger. Resentment and violence against Muslim-Americans — true and faithful followers of a peaceful religion,” Biden said in a prerecorded video published for the occasion.

    A 21-year-old Long Island woman was assaulted by a suspect who doused her with acid on her own driveway in a disturbing incident her family claims was a “planned attack.” Nafiah Ikram was left severely burned and nearly blind in the appalling March 17 Elmont attack. Her father, Sheikh Ikram, 50, said Nafiah was targeted on her way home from work. “No it’s not a random attack, it’s a planned attack,” Ikram told The Post Wednesday night. “If it was a random attack why did… they waited for her to come home,” Ikram said, adding the suspect could have attacked...

    So Right It Hurts ^ | January 12, 2019 | Mary Parsons
    Freshman Congressmen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib have wasted no time in shaking up the US House of Representatives. Early Friday morning, Omar and Tlaib introduced a bill adding Islamic holidays to the Federal calendar which has traditionally only recognized American holidays. Omar and Tlaib’s bill would add Eid Al-Fitr at the end of Ramadan and the four-day-long celebration of Eid Al-Adha to the list of Federally recognized holidays, potentially granting reasons to banks, schools, and other businesses to remain closed for five additional days per year. Omar and Tlaib justified their work as making America more inclusive of it’s...

    Speaking during a panel titled "Unapologetically Muslim" at an event held by the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), British journalist and Al-Jazeera TV host Mehdi Hasan said that complicated political issues require different strategies and that "we will need Linda [Sarsour] in the corridors of Congress, maybe being pulled out by Capitol police." Linda Sarsour said that American Muslims ... who debate the issue of Palestine and try to defend or "humanize the oppressor."

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — U.S. Bank Stadium became a place of worship on Tuesday. Thousands of Muslim families from across Minnesota filled the stadium in celebration of a religious holiday. The prayer service on the field and the outdoor activities that followed were part of ‘Super Eid,’ marking a day-long event focused on self-reflection and family.

    Super Eid “rally” features roster of scary speakers with Jihadist ties. As Islamic leaders with ties to terrorism addressed them, thousands of Muslims chanted the jihadist battle cry “Allahu Akbar” at taxpayer-funded U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis yesterday as part of a huge celebration of the Muslim festival of animal sacrifice known as Eid al-Adha. One media estimate put the size of the crowd at 30,000. “Allahu Akbar” is not an innocuous phrase. It is generally the last thing victims of Muslim terrorism around the world hear as their lives are cut short at the hands of groups like Islamic...

    WASHINGTON -- A former Michigan state legislator is poised to become the first Muslim woman elected to Congress after emerging on top of a crowded Democratic primary Tuesday night to fill the seat vacated by Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.). Conyers, the sixth-longest serving member of Congress given his election in 1965, resigned in December due to sexual harassment and his use of taxpayer money to settle a harassment claim. His western Detroit district is all but a lock for Dems, as Republicans didn't put forth a candidate. Rashida Tlaib, a Palestinian-American and socialist Dem in the mold of Sen. Bernie...
  • Islamic Coup: More Than 90 Muslim, Mostly Democrat, Running For Political Office In The US

    07/26/2018 5:17:36 PM PDT · by ATOMIC_PUNK · 32 replies ^ | TIM BROWN — JULY 26, 2018
    More than 90 American Muslims, nearly all of them Democrats, are running for public office across the country this year. Many are young and politically inexperienced, and most are long shots. But they represent a collective gamble: that voters are so disgusted by America’s least popular president on record that they’re willing to elect members of America’s least popular religious minority group. Although their number seems small, the candidacies mark an unprecedented rise for the nation’s diverse Muslim community that typically has been underrepresented in American politics. There are more than 3.3 million Muslims living in the United States, but...

    Current public perceptions of American Muslims are distinctly unfavorable. That’s according to multiple surveys from the Democracy Fund Voter Study Group, including the 2017 Views of the Electoral Research (VOTER) Survey, which assessed viewpoints of 5,000 Americans, all of whom had been previously surveyed in 2011, 2012 and 2016. The Democracy Fund Voter Study Group is a collaboration of nearly two dozen analysts and scholars from across the political spectrum. In the group’s new “Muslims in America: Public Perceptions in the Trump Era” report published in June, researchers found that on average, Americans believe that only 51 percent of Muslim...

    Full title: D.C. Metro Transit Police officer “attracted to Nazis and Islamic terrorists at the same time. Both hate Jews.” Indeed. The Qur’an depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13). They are disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78);...

    Actor James Woods took aim at the Mall of America on Monday by posting a 45-second video showing hundreds of Muslims gathering at Nickelodeon Universe, the seven-acre indoor amusement park in the center of Bloomington mall.

Oh, wait ...” Woods, a prolific user of Twitter with more than 1 million followers, frequently tweets on conservative causes. His Mall of America tweet had more than 12,000 likes and about 9,000 retweets Tuesday. Many of the nearly 5,000 commenters supported Woods, but it also has generated backlash. Although it...

    Candidates with terror-tied CAIR for House, Senate, governor. This election season, there are several candidates running for office who are connected to the terror-tied Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). The group positions itself as a modern-day civil rights organization for American Muslims, but that’s far from the truth. CAIR, which has been declared a terrorist organization in the UAE (an Arab-Muslim country), was founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood with the goal of raising funds for the Hamas terrorist organization. Additionally, the organization was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism financing case in U.S. history. And...

  • Why Did the Islamic State Claim the Las Vegas Shooting? ("Converted to Islam months ago")

    The Atlantic ^ | October 2, 2017 | Graeme Wood, National correspondent
    This morning, the Islamic State’s semi-official news agency, Amaq, took credit for the Las Vegas massacre, which killed 58 and wounded another 515. The likely killer, identified by police as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock of Mesquite, Nevada, was not known to be a supporter of the Islamic State, or indeed a Muslim of any type. For now, the only evidence that the Islamic State was involved is its own assurance—first a press release announcing that a “soldier of the Islamic State” executed the concertgoers, and a follow-up for the baffled, explaining that he converted to Islam months ago. The FBI has...

    Nihad Awad, CAIR’s national executive director, urged state and local governments to erase every symbol and every vestige of Confederate history immediately. “A fitting response to the deadly terror attack on anti-racist protesters in Charlottesville would be for officials in states and cities nationwide to immediately announce that every street, every school, every flag, and every public memorial honoring those who took up arms in defense of white supremacy and slavery will be removed or have its name changed to instead honor those who fought for civil rights,” Awad said in a statement to The Daily Caller. “Removal of these...
