A new coalition of Muslim groups is launching a Democrat 2020 campaign to influence the Muslim vote. The “Million Muslim Votes campaign,” is described as “an unprecedented $1 million effort to find and persuade Muslims to participate in the 2020 general election.” These groups are expectedly unsavory: CAIR, the Illinois Muslim Civic Coalition, MPower Change, […]

CAIR’s Islamophobia reports have been around for a while. And they deserve as much credibility as anything from an officially unindicted co-conspirator Islamist organization ought to. Here’s the DOJ on the subject. In 2008, the FBI developed a policy on its interactions with CAIR based in part on evidence presented during the 2007 trial of the […]
“Jews are more dangerous than AIDS, coronavirus, cholera and all the diseases of this world. If you want to be saved from these deadly diseases, we should all remember jihad.” The Qur’an depicts the Jews as inveterately evil. They are bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people […]
What could possibly go wrong? Convicted terrorists are simply people who have acted upon their justifiable grievances against the U.S. and Israel, right? Don’t you stand against colonialism, imperialism, and racism, you greasy Islamophobe? “174 Democrats Vote Against Amendment That Aims To Make It Harder To Hire TSA Employees With Terrorist Or Sexual Crime Record,” […]
Nida Allam has been elected to office in North Carolina, and her campaign has prioritized the significance of her Democratic primary win in Durham county: The campaign told CNN that officials looked back at previous North Carolina election data, county by county, and found no previous Muslim American women who had won elections to hold […]
“It is not appropriate to label all, or even the majority of those, who question Islam and Muslims as Islamophobes.” – CAIR Report 2013, Legislating Fear: Islamophobia and its Impact in the United States, p. ix. In January 2020, I wrote about the results of a survey I had done in which I presented four […]
“Despite security screening of these individuals, it became clear in the wake of the attack that the federal government failed to pick up on clear warning signs, such as the attacker’s anti-American social media posts.” Clearly the screening process is inadequate, in large part because of the Pentagon’s denial and willful ignorance regarding the motivating […]
It’s not an original idea. The Brotherhood’s Qaradawi expressed the same idea. Throughout history, Allah has imposed upon the [Jews] people who would punish them for their corruption. The last punishment was carried out by Hitler. By means of all the things he did to them – even though they exaggerated this issue – he managed to […]
The fact that Gabriel Said Reynolds, who demonstrates here that he is either abjectly ignorant or willfully dishonest about Islam, is a professor of theology at Notre Dame shows how much our nation’s universities (and the Catholic Church) are dominated by fantasy and wishful thinking rather than being willing to deal with unpleasant realities. Reynolds […]
My latest in PJ Media: The main impression that Michael Bloomberg has given the world as a presidential candidate is one of weakness. He has fumbled awkwardly when fielding questions about his crude remarks about women. He allowed himself to be bullied into apologizing for New York City’s Stop-and-Frisk program, despite the fact that crime levels […]
“It’s not feeling safe and honestly feeling like I’ve been failed by the system,” says the victim, Alicia Clarke, and she is right. Not only has she been failed by law enforcement authorities, but also by the establishment media. The KSDK story below contains no hint of the fact that the attacker was a Muslim […]
“The man is suspected of planning and directing terrorist operations that included the Jan. 5 attack at Manda Bay Airfield in Kenya that claimed the life of Spc. Henry ‘Mitch’ Mayfield Jr., 23, and two military contractors.” Why are U.S. troops at Manda Bay Airfield? Are we stopping jihad activity in East Africa? If so, […]
VIDEO: Bernie Sanders Says He Will Consider Moving the US Embassy Back to Tel Aviv. During his appearance with the other Democratic candidates in South Carolina, Bernie Sanders was asked if he would “move the American Embassy back to Tel Aviv from Jerusalem”; he did not find that an outrageous idea. In fact, he said […]
The US/Taliban peace talks have been a grim charade. No one in the foreign policy establishment will acknowledge the fact, but the Taliban are strict, Sharia-observant Muslims, and the Sharia guidelines for treaty-making with Infidels are based on Muhammad’s Treaty of Hudaybiyya. Muslims can only enter into such a treaty when they are weak and […]
VIDEO: Bernie Sanders Defends Praise of Fidel Castro’s Literacy Programs After Blowback. On 60 Minutes, Anderson Cooper asked Bernie Sanders about his early enthusiasm for Fidel Castro, the late Cuban dictator. Sanders said that he was no longer an enthusiast, but did want us all to remember that Castro had done some good. He praised […]
