  • AIPAC blasts Sanders after 2020 frontrunner says he’ll skip conference (platform to "express bigotry")

    The American Israel Public Affairs Committee late Sunday called out Sen. Bernie Sanders over his decision to skip its conference next month in Washington and blaming his decision on his concern that the group provides a platform for leaders to "express bigotry" and oppose basic Palestinian rights. Sanders, who is on the heels of an emphatic win in the Nevada Caucuses, took to Twitter on Sunday to voice his concern about the influential lobby. The Vermont senator vowed that if elected president he would work with both Israelis and Palestinians to bring peace and stability to the region. AIPAC wasted...
  • Minneapolis: Will Somali voters turn out for Ilhan Omar in 2020?

    All four members of “The Squad” come from deep blue districts that normally are safe seats for Democrats. But Rep. Ilhan Omar, who represents the city of Minneapolis and a few inner ring suburbs, is now caught in a scandal that threatens to alienate her biggest voting bloc base, fellow Muslim Somalis, who emigrated to Minnesota by the tens of thousands at the behest of the  State Department that thought the generous welfare benefits of the North Star State could well be spent on people from a tropical climate transplanted to the coldest metropolis in the country.

    Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders enlisted the services of far-left activist Linda Sarsour to campaign for him this week as he seeks the Democratic presidential nomination. Sanders tweeted Sarsour’s remarks in a video that went viral Friday night and Saturday morning. Sarsour has come under fire for her harsh criticism of Israel, defense of Sharia Law, and refusal to condemn Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. She has also been accused by Jewish organizations of holding anti-Semitic views.

    Angry Muslim American voters are tired of being ignored by the Democratic Party’s presidential candidates — even though they make up a fast-growing source of Democrat votes. Only two of the party’s White House contenders, Bernie Sanders and Julian Castro, agreed to speak at Saturday’s presidential forum at the annual convention of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) which has drawn 30,000 attendees to Houston, Tex. this weekend.

    The left and its comrades in the mainstream media have taken the Jewish vote for granted for years. Jews are one of the most reliable constituencies of the Democratic Party. A CNN poll last fall found that nearly 80 percent of Jews voted Democratic in the midterm elections. Only 17 percent voted Republican. Yet anti-Semitism on the left in the U.S. has increased recently, including in the media. The Democrats treat people according to group identities instead of as individuals. So when one of their group constituencies inevitably clashes with another group constituency, the Democrats have to pick a side. When it’s...

    (Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke) is once again taking aim at Benjamin Netanyahu, going so far as to label the conservative Israeli leader a “racist” who’s an obstacle to Mideast peace. Asked about the peace process while campaigning in Iowa City, Iowa, the former three-term congressman from Texas said that “the U.S.-Israel relationship is one of the most important relationships we have on the planet."But targeting Netanyahu, O’Rourke argued that if the U.S.-Israeli relation is to be successful going forward, “it must be able to transcend a prime minister who is racist as he warns of Arabs coming to the...

    A Muslim physician who said she “moves around” in the Muslim world refuted the mainstream media’s narrative on Saturday that POTUS Donald Trump’s rhetoric was somehow responsible for the terrorist attack in New Zealand. Qanta Ahmed, a doctor and an associate professor of medicine at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, appeared on CNN and was asked to respond to a video played by host Fredericka Whitfield of the president on Friday using the word “invasion” in connection with the issue of illegal immigration on the southern border. The word was also used in a manifesto written...

    Rashida Tlaib joined Ilhan Omar on election night to become one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress. Tuning into the news at dawn on Wednesday, the extended family of Rashida Tlaib, the first Palestinian-American woman to be elected to the U.S. Congress, celebrated her victory in their home in the West Bank. ADVERTISING Tlaib, a Democrat, ran virtually unopposed in Michigan’s 13th congressional district, which encompasses southwest Detroit and its suburbs west to the city of Dearborn. She previously served in Michigan’s state legislature. She has become “a source of pride for Palestine and the entire Arab and...

    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...

    President Donald Trump excluded a variety of domestic Islamic groups linked to the Muslim Brotherhood from his first White House annual Islamic ‘Iftar’ dinner. The exclusion is a sharp change from former President Barack Obama, who put the Brotherhood-linked groups front-and-center in his Iftar dinners and his Middle East strategy. His regional strategy crashed once the Brotherhood groups in Egypt, Syria, Libya, Tunisia, and other countries were unable to restrain their Islamic radicalism during the so-called “Arab Spring.” Reports show that most of the invitees at the dinner were the ambassadors of Islamic countries, including Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Morocco....

    (CNN)President Donald Trump will host a dinner at the White House this week celebrating the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. The iftar is scheduled for Wednesday, according to Politico, which first reported Trump would host the dinner, and a guest list was not made available by the White House. The event was not held last year, breaking nearly two decades of tradition by previous Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama.

    The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), in partnership with the Virginia Council of Muslim Organizations (VCMO), today released the results of an exit poll indicating that Muslim voters in Virginia strongly supported now governor-elect Ralph Northam in Tuesday's election. The poll, conducted by an independent interactive voice response survey provider on behalf of CAIR and VCMO, indicated that 76 percent of registered Virginia Muslim voters turned out to the polls in the off-year election. CAIR said the more than 300 Muslim voters surveyed indicated the following preferences: Ralph Northam (D) 85% Ed Gillespie (R) 13% Cliff Hyra (L) 2%...

    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.

    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.

    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...
