There is nothing wrong with students learning about Islam in school, if what they’re taught is accurate. But it isn’t. Because of the overpowering influence of the multiculturalist ethos and fears of charges of “Islamophobia” and “racism,” public school materials on Islam and other religions are for the most part heavily biased, with scarcely a […]

“Denying visit to duly elected members of Congress is not consistent with being an ally. And denying millions of people freedom of movement or expression or self determination is not consistent with being a democracy.” The sponsors of their trip have been linked to anti-Semitism and jihad terrorism. They had nothing to say about that. The […]
Ex-Muslims of North America @ExmuslimsOrg published the following comments and video: Passenger attacks flight attendant on Transavia Airline Paris-Tunis flight after finishing his prayer that blocked the cockpit and bathrooms. Plane was rerouted and delayed in Nice, France, where he resisted arrest, yelling “Allahu Akbar.” The face of religious entitlement. Somehow his peaceful religion […]
My article in PJ Media on a much-misunderstood topic: The Qur’an says that Christians and Muslims worship the same God (29:46), and so does the Catholic Church. The Irish Catholic newspaper recently considered this question and offered an argument from authority, which is the weakest of all arguments: Christians and Muslims worship the same God because the Catholic Church’s Second Vatican […]
Senior Democratic members of Congress are “are considering releasing a statement of no confidence” in Israel’s ambassador to the U.S. Ron Dermer and “opening an inspector-general investigation” into U.S. envoy to Israel David Friedman over Israel’s decision to ban Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar from entering Israel. The Democratic lawmakers are advancing the idea […]
The Washington Post’s ties to Islamic terrorists are a national security risk. Millions of Americans brought Alexa into their homes only to learn, belatedly, that not only software, but human beings, were listening in on them. Amazon employees and contractors from Costa Rica to India were caught reviewing thousands of recordings, of casual requests, private conversations and […]
You can see from the impressive zebiba on Maurice Hill’s forehead that he is a devout Muslim; the zebiba is a bruise that forms from the fact that Muslims in their five daily prayers perform numerous prostrations, pressing their foreheads to the ground. The zebiba is seen as a mark of intense piety. That in […]
A little background about CNN’s Jake Tapper: CNN was “slammed as ‘disgraceful’” after Jake Tapper remained silent when a guest accused Trump radicalizing “more people than ISIS.” Mark Levin has also stated of Tapper: “Now, keep in mind, it’s about Epstein’s apparent suicide, but Jake Tapper wants you to believe it’s about Trump.” Levin also said: “Jake Tapper’s a […]
Europe has gone down this road before. It didn’t end well. This time, its principal motivator is the continent’s rapidly growing Muslim population, as well as its endless infatuation with an increasingly anti-Semitic Left. “Europe Poised to Put Warning Labels on Jewish-Made Products,” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, August 9, 2019: The European Union is […]
The New York Times and Norway’s Aftenposten are both respected pillars of “journalism,” but neither would know the facts if they came up to them and yelled “Extry! Extry! Read all about it!” Just ask former U.S. President Robert Nixon and the celebrated atheist Robert Dawkins. Oh wait, did I get those names wrong? Don’t […]
“War is deceit,” said Muhammad (Bukhari 4.52.268). “Anti-Semite Ilhan Omar Says Hate Crimes Increase 226% After Trump Holds a Rally — But AG Bill Barr Says “No Evidence” Hate Crimes Increased Under Trump,” by Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit, August 8, 2019: Radical anti-Semite and Democrat Ilhan Omar tweeted out on Wednesday that counties that hold Trump […]
“A serious annual defense budget will have to wait.” – Andrew E. Harrod, Ph.D. Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) forces seized the British oil tanker Stena Impero on July 19, an outrage that follows Iran’s June 13 attacks on two oil tankers and the June 20 downing of an American drone. Yet rather than focusing on an increasingly volatile […]
It has become commonplace among Leftists — not just Ilhan Omar — to claim that “white men” are a greater threat than jihad terrorists. (They say nothing about white jihad terrorists.) We have debunked this claim many times here at Jihad Watch, and here is another able takedown of this enduringly popular Big Lie. “WALSH: […]
“I really make my own path.” How grand. But what will Avery Mills think, and what will she do, when she discovers that many Muslims do not believe that a woman should make her own path? The Qur’an teaches that men are superior to women and should beat those from whom they “fear disobedience”: “Men […]
The email announcing the Eventbrite refund of my ticket for Washington, DC’s July 23-24 Muslim Collective for Equitable Democracy conference clearly indicated to me a depressingly familiar tactic of controlled public relations. Once again, defenders of Islam such as the Hamas-derived Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) had excluded the inquisitive eyes and ears of a known critic […]
