How Islam Apologists Like John Esposito Dupe Americans About Sharia

PJ Media Does Islam itself promote hostility for and violence against non-Muslims, or are all the difficulties between the West and Islam based on secondary factors—from “radical” interpretations of Islam, to economics and grievances? This is the fundamental question. Obviously, if “anti-infidel” hostility is inherent to Islam itself, then the conflict becomes existential—a true clash […]

The Folly of Multiculturalism

PJ Media Exactly how beneficial to a society is multiculturalism, this word that is so celebrated in the West? First one must define the word: It is “the view that cultures, races, and ethnicities, particularly those of minority groups, deserve special acknowledgement of their differences within a dominant political culture.” Note the immediate inaccuracies within this standard definition. “Races,” which indicate a […]

Popularity of the Name ‘Muhammad’ in Europe Is an Element of Jihad

PJ Media Muhammad is slowly gaining ground against the infidels — and in their own homelands. As one recent report notes, the German city of Bremen is the first in the country for which it is the most popular name for newborn boys. It’s the same in other Western European cities. “Mohammed [is the] most popular name […]

“Go to Hell!” Egypt Responds to French Call to Revise Koran

PJ Media Recently I explained how, by Muslims’ own (inadvertent) logic, various Koran verses stand to be banned on the basis that they defame and incite violence against non-Muslims. Two days later, the French newspaper Le Monde published a letter signed by some 300 French public figures across the party lines including former president Nicolas […]

Islam’s Impact on the West’s Identity

PJ Media What role if any did Islam play in shaping Europe’s identity, both in the past and the present?

The Tired Lies of Taqiyya

FrontPage Magazine Attempts to whitewash the Islamic doctrine of taqiyya are becoming redundantly desperate. Consider BuzzFeed’s recent, “‘Taqiyya’: How An Obscure Islamic Concept Became An Obsession Of Anti-Muslim Activists.”  It offers the same claims and defenses that have been repeatedly discredited. After quoting  Ezra Levant, founder of The Rebel Media, saying that taqiyya “means deliberate […]

“In Reality,” Judaism and Christianity Are Not Religions, Says Top Egyptian Cleric

Coptic Solidarity Although many in the West insist Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are “sibling” religions with a foundation to build on—also known as the Abrahamic Myth—top Egyptian cleric Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb says that Judaism and Christianity are not even religions.  In a televised interview, he gave the mainstream Islamic view on “religions”: There is only […]

Muslims Inadvertently Call for Ban on Islam

PJ Media The very same logic that Muslims cite in their ongoing efforts to criminalize anti-Islamic speech in Western nations would require the criminalization of Islam itself. Secretary-General of the Muslim World League Mohammed al-Issa argues that “Europe must do more to … criminalize religious hate speech.” In an April 9 interview with Reuters, this prominent Saudi […]

SPLC takes down their “Field Guide” to anti-Muslim extremists

Possibly getting wind of an upcoming lawsuit the Southern Poverty Law Center has apparently blinked and removed their October 2016 “Field Guide,” that included yours truly, from their website.

maajid nawaz

The SPLC listed Nawaz as an anti-Muslim extremist and he is reportedly planning to sue them.

The Field Guide was meant to let the media know who they were supposed to shun when seeking comment on anything to do with Islam.

If you visit my post on the ‘honor’ here you will see that the link to the news no longer works.

Islam’s ‘Abrahamic’ Dilemma

Parents arrested in teen abuse case; father was an Iraqi interpreter for US

There are dozens of reports in publications around the world about the case of a missing San Antonio teen, Maarib al-Hishmawi, now found alive and well in the care of an unnamed organization that protected her.

She went into hiding because she didn’t want to go through with an arranged marriage (this is the United States!) and she reported she suffered physical abuse by her parents because of her refusal to essentially be sold to a man she didn’t know for $20,000. (Did I mention that this is the United States!).

Hating ‘for the Sake of Allah’

FrontPage Magazine After launching a successful terror attack to free a fellow jihadi that left several slain policemen in its wake last month, the militant commander of Kashmir’s Hizb al-Mujahidin—“the Party of Jihadis”—justified the murders by saying,  “We love and hate for the sake of Allah.” In this otherwise cryptic assertion lies the root of […]

The Economist: The number of ex-Muslims in America is rising

This is one of the most interesting articles I have read in awhile. Who knew? Somalis and other Muslim immigrants are leaving Islam in growing numbers, or at least hiding their rejection of the ‘faith.’

I’ve heard it said that there would be no Islam if there was no severe punishment for renouncing it.  Around the world “apostasy” is a death sentence. Honor killings here in the US are a prime example of how Islam instills fear in its ‘followers.’

Here is The Economist with the fascinating news:

Muslim-on-Muslim Violence Is Israel’s Fault, Says ‘World’s Most Influential Muslim’

PJ Media. One way or the other, Israel is to blame for all of the Middle East’s problems, claim many leading Muslims.

Eliminate Israel, Eliminate Islamic Terrorism?
