No hate crimes are ever justified. The “Islamophobia” industry, however, wildly exaggerates the threat to Muslims and falsely portrays them as subject to widespread discrimination and harassment in the US, in its indefatigable pursuit of protected victim status. “Anti-Semitic hate crimes in LA increased by 60 percent,” JNS, January 24, 2020 (thanks to The Religion of Peace): […]

Rep. Tlaib has nearly 900,000 followers on Twitter. Hundreds of thousands likely saw her initial tweet before she took it down. She did not retweet the retraction. “Tlaib deletes retweet blaming Israelis for death of boy who apparently drowned,” Times of Israel, January 26, 2020: Rep. Rashida Tlaib retweeted then removed a tweet falsely blaming Israelis […]
“The Trump administration’s push to counter Iran’s influence in South America won key support from leaders in the region in recent days, with three Latin American nations officially declaring Lebanon’s Tehran-backed Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.” The work of Iranian jihadist proxies worldwide is underrated and under reported. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo captures the […]
This is no doubt the work of swamp creatures, i.e., entrenched federal bureaucrats who are happy to defy the Trump’s administration’s agenda. The swamp needs draining, but is fighting back furiously. “US Gov’t Hands Out Tens of Millions to Islamist Organizations,” Clarion Project, January 23, 2020: The U.S. government under the Trump administration has handed out tens […]
Celebrate diversity all you want. But is diversity going to celebrate you? “French teenager in hiding after insulting Islam online,” by Adam Sage, The Times, January 24, 2020 (thanks to The Religion of Peace): Police have told a French teenager to go into hiding after she received death threats for insulting Islam. The 16-year-old has been […]
“A U.S. official familiar with information reviewed by authorities told CBS News that Dehghani himself does not have ties to terroristic groups, but ‘some very close to him’ do.” Many in the U.S. think Shabab Dehghani is an innocent victim of official “Islamophobia.” And it is certainly true that no one should be punished for […]
“The Iranian state serves the revolution, not the other way around,” concluded Iran analysts at the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change (IGC) in a series of 2019 studies four decades after Iran’s 1979 Islamic revolution. As this series has previously indicated, in the name of pursuing an Islamic new world order, the Islamic Republic of […]
“U.S. disarmament ambassador Robert Wood dismissed the reward as ‘ridiculous’, telling reporters in Geneva it showed the ‘terrorist underpinnings’ of Iran’s establishment.” Indeed. And if anyone succeeds in doing this, there will be great rejoicing in Washington and mourning all over Iran. It’s a topsy-turvy world. “Iran MP offers reward for killing Trump, U.S. calls […]
Lost in the fracas here is the fact that what Annabelle Lima-Taub wrote is largely true. Tlaib really is demonstrably an anti-Semite who is friendly with several open supporters of jihad terror. See, for example, all the evidence here and here. That she might “blow up Capitol Hill” is hyperbole, but of course J. C. Jimenez never for […]
My latest in PJ Media: You’d think that a group with multiple ties to the jihad terror group Hamas would be shunned by elected American representatives, and even more by law enforcement officials, except insofar as it was under investigation. You’d think wrong. The Washington Free Beacon reported Thursday that despite the “more than 120 members of Congress […]
Remove Trump from office! He is daring to challenge the Left’s favorite world leader! مردم نجیب ایران، که آمریکا را دوست می دارند، سزاوار دولتی هستند که بیش از تمرکز بر کشتن آنها به جرم احترام خواهی، به آنها کمک کند تا به رؤیاهایشان دست یابند. رهبران ایران به جای آن که ایران را به […]
BY CHRISTINE DOUGLASS-WILLIAMS “Islamic extremism is a primary driver of Christian persecution in eight out of the ten most dangerous places for Christians to live, Open Doors revealed Wednesday in its World Watch List 2020.” This is nothing new. The suffering endured by Christians because of Islamic supremacist bigotry and hate is unfathomable to most Westerners. […]
My latest in PJ Media: Nancy Pelosi doesn’t have the vaguest idea of what’s happening in Iran these days; all she knows is that Donald Trump is for it so therefore she is against it. A new series of extraordinary videos, however, pulls back the curtain on the immense anger that ordinary Iranians are now expressing […]
“We are of Aryaee [Aryan] race, we don’t worship Arabs,” chanted Iranians during protests that erupted over economic woes on December 28, 2017, and continued for weeks countrywide. Such slogans during popular upheavals rocking Iran until today indicate that after four crises-filled decades Iran’s theocratic Islamic Republic is losing support in a nation with a historically-rooted non-Islamic identity. The Guardian noted […]
Probably just a circus performer. Relax, you greasy Islamophobe. “Police release name of Iranian national found with knives on Flagler Memorial Bridge,” WPTV, January 10, 2020 (thanks to The Religion of Peace): PALM BEACH, Fla. — Palm Beach police are investigating after they say a man believed to be an Iranian national was found with several knives […]
