    The office of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has told FWI it will be removing the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) as a partner in its Faith and Community Initiative.

On August 18, a Facebook post by the Florida branch of CAIR claimed to be a leading member of the initiative, declaring, "Governor Ron DeSantis recently presented CAIR-Florida with a Certificate of Recognition for our continued work...

    Muslims make up 25% of the global population and Islam is the fastest-growing religion in the world — but Muslims only comprise 1% of characters shown on popular televisions series in the U.S., the U.K., Australia and New Zealand. Those are just two of the findings in a new report issued Wednesday by the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative. Researchers investigated 200 top-rated television shows from 2018 and 2019 that aired in these four countries, and surveyed 8,885 characters with speaking roles. Apart from the numbers deficit, the majority of the Muslim characters were depicted as adult Middle Eastern or North...

    It was supposed to be a joyful occasion. Young men and women gathered in a circle, displaying their dance moves as they celebrated Mali’s independence day in the country’s western region of Kayes. But things took a dark turn when a group of people carrying thick wooden sticks and machetes appeared all of sudden. The celebrating crowd – people from the so-called “slave” class – were brutally attacked and publicly humiliated by the descendants of slaveholder families who consider themselves “nobles”.

Another teammate, Angel Hernandez — who lives in Arvada and graduated from Arvada West in 2019 — said Alissa got into a fight in the parking lot after the match. “(The other wrestler) was just teasing him and goes, ‘Maybe if you were a better wrestler, you would have won.’ (Alissa) just lost it. He started punching him,” Hernandez said. Hernandez said Alissa frequently appeared to be paranoid about perceived slights against him, and Marvel said Alissa was often...

Saad questioned islamaphobia and political correctness, Islamic immigration to the West, and Saad's pet disorder: 'Ostrich Parasitic Syndrome', which describes the act of putting your head in the sand to escape your problems."Do you know that's a myth?" the 'Joe Rogan Experience' podcast host asked about ostriches burying their heads in the sand.

    Playing the role they have been programmed to play, (victims) the radical progressive “squad” of freshman Democratic lawmakers held a news conference Monday to react to President Donald Trump calling them out for their contempt for America. And while that spectacle went as you might expect, there was a interesting moment when Rep. Ilham Omar was asked specifically about criticism from Trump that she’s pro-al Qaeda. A simple repudiation of the terrorist group would have dismissed the assertion and moved things along to the next question, but Omar, a Somali refugee and one of the first two Muslim women elected...
