The New York Times, Aftenposten, Robert Spencer, Richard Spencer, and journalistic standards in 2019

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 […]

lhan Omar claims hate crimes up 226% after Trump rallies, Barr says no evidence hate crimes increased under Trump

“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 […]

Democrats Fiddle While Iran Burns

“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 […]

Here’s why Ilhan Omar’s claim that ‘white men’ are greater threat than jihad terrorists is wrong

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: […]

“90 Day Fiancé” star Avery Mills converts to Islam, says “No one can sway my decision. I really make my own path.”

“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 […]

Muslim Brothers Shut Out Critics

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 […]

Ilhan Omar and the Door of No Return

Freshman Minnesota Congressional Representative Ilhan Omar, in an apparent bid to keep a Twitter feud alive with President Trump, tweeted a photo of herself posing with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi at the “Door of No Return” on the coast of Ghana. Part of a 15-member Congressional Black Caucus junket (funded presumably by US […]

Germany: Muslim who murdered man with sword in broad daylight is ‘Palestinian’ claiming to be Syrian ‘refugee’ [Video]

“War is deceit,” said Muhammad (Bukhari 4.52.268).  “Breaking: sword murderer apparently lived under false identity in Germany,” translated from Eilt: Schwertmörder lebte anscheinend unter falscher Identität in Deutschland,” JournalistenWatch, August 1, 2019 (thanks to Searchlight Germany): Stuttgart – The alleged murderer who attacked and killed a 36-year-old German with a sword on Wednesday evening in broad […]

California: Gilroy Garlic Festival shooter had “reading material on white supremacy and radical Islam”

He railed against “Silicon Valley white twats,” so it’s unlikely that he was a white supremacist, contrary to establishment media claims. But although he had material on jihad, he doesn’t seem to have been a committed Muslim, or a Muslim at all; he is more likely to have been a hate-filled individual with a thirst to […]

Florida: Muslim attacks man with scissors, screams ‘We are coming for you Trump. We are coming for you with knives.’

“Whoever knows why I came to America wait for the urgent news on television screens and victory is from Allah.” Another grateful “refugee.” “Florida man accused of threatening President Trump during arrest at Walmart,” Associated Press, July 30, 2019: FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — A Florida man accused of trying to slash a Walmart employee with […]

Virginia: Muslim lawmaker who disrupted Trump speech had Hamas financiers as donors, wrote anti-Semitic posts

Those who are celebrated by the Left today for hating Trump more vociferously and obnoxiously than the next Leftist don’t have clean hands themselves. “Virginia Lawmaker Connected to Anti-Semitic Groups,” by Mikhael Smits, Washington Free Beacon, May 21, 2019: A member of the Virginia legislature and former volunteer for Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) is connected […]

Ilhan Omar’s Contempt for the Law

Trespassing, multiple traffic violations – and oh, she married her brother. My latest in FrontPage: The striking evidence that Minnesota’s notorious Representative Ilhan Omar married her own brother in an apparent case of immigration fraud is finally making its way into the mainstream, albeit amid a great deal of obfuscation and outright disinformation. However, that curious case is […]

BDS advocate Ilhan Omar uses an Israeli company to power her website

She doesn’t have to worry, of course: the establishment media will never call her out on this hypocrisy. “Whoops: BDS Proponent Ilhan Omar uses Israeli company to Power Website,” by David Sidman, Breaking Israel News, July 23, 2019: Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D, MN), who introduced legislation that seeks to protect those who want to boycott, divest […]

Rashida and Ilhan’s Excellent Adventure in The Land of Israel by Hugh Fitzgerald

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has wisely decided to permit Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar to visit Israel. Now Israel must make the most of this trip, which the two Congresswomen plan to use to further their anti-Israel agenda. The Israelis should suggest, in the most respectful possible way, that while Rashida and Ilhan will […]

Miss Michigan World America loses beauty crown for noting hijab makes women ‘oppressed under Islam’

After declining to try on a hijab, Kathy Zhu said: “So you’re telling me that it’s now just a fashion accessory and not a religious thing? Or are you just trying to get women used to being oppressed under Islam?” How “Islamophobic,” right? But what about Aqsa Parvez? Her Muslim father choked her to death with […]
