‘Our top priority … is to please Allah, and only Allah.’
Addressing the 54th Annual ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) Convention this past weekend, Sarsour delivered a 22-minute screed attacking the Trump administration and called on the Muslim community to unite against the White House.
Sarsour began the speech thanking her “favorite person in this room … Imam Siraj Wahhaj, who has been a mentor, motivator, and encourager of mine.” She does not mention that Wahhaj was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombings.
“Why sisters and brothers, why are we so unprepared. Why are we so afraid of this administration and the potential chaos that they will ensue on our community?” she said.
Then, in a particularly vague, yet terrifying, segment of her speech, Sarsour said, “I hope, that when we stand up to those who oppress our communities, that Allah accepts from us that as a form of jihad.”
“We are struggling against tyrants and rulers not only abroad … but here in the United States of America where you have fascists and white supremacists and Islamophobes reining in the White House,” she continued. Read the rest of this entry »
Pamela Geller writes: On the very day that the devout Muslim group Boko Haram released a video of the kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls, clad in burkas and being forced to recite the Qur’an, author Dean Obeidallah declared in the Daily Beast that “The Nigerian terrorist group that kidnapped hundreds of schoolgirls has nothing to do with Islam, and it’s grotesquely irresponsible of the media to suggest it does.”
Mr. Obeidallah, it’s not the media that suggests it; it is Boko Haram that declares it.
“The reason the media use the rather silly term ‘Islamist’ or ‘Islamic radical’ is because the devout Muslims engaged in jihad are citing Qur’an chapter and verse. They are identifying themselves as such.”
It is not grotesque to tell the truth. What is grotesque is that the widely-read Daily Beast would run such damaging propaganda by a failed yet self-described “comic.”

The Daily Beast is doing an end run for Islamic jihad when these girls’ lives hang in the balance. That is a different kind of savagery. The Beast is more worried about Islam’s PR than it is in educating the public on the most grave threat to freedom, not just in Nigeria but across the world.
“Disinformationalists like Obdeillah don’t have a theological leg to stand on.”
Clearly, the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls is just more empty rhetoric from hypocrites, not an honest clarion call for action.
Democrat Rep. George Miller thinks GOP is Waging ‘Jihad’ Against American People
I wonder how actual Jihadists feel about this? They’re probably quite offended by Miller’s blasphemous use of their exclusive term. Which–contrary to Miller’s ignorant wisecrack–has a very real, deadly serious meaning. When offended–unlike your average annoying Republican member of Congress–Jihadists tend to have no problem using tactics like mass murder, kidnappings, chest-stabbings, assassinations, beheadings, and, you know, dancing in the blood of their victims, including dead women and children. These things are historically not uncommon. And in recent history, increasingly common. Especially against innocent Christians. And fellow Muslims, too.
At the very least, real Jihadists might consider legal action. Assuming they decline to impose a Fatwa calling for the torture and murder of Rep. George Miller and every member of his family. Which is a perfectly normal Jihadist reaction to feeling offended by rhetoric-spouting infidels, regardless of national origin, political ideology, or party affiliation.
A Jihadist trademark infringement lawsuit against Rep. George Miller might inspire George to think twice about his reckless, inflammatory rhetoric. Terrorists and Jihadists have lawyers, too. And they’ve proven themselves to be very effective at promoting their trade craft, as well as improving and perfecting their violent methods of enforcing obedience.
But–according to Miller–a disagreeable political opponent is no different than a terror-trained chest-stabbing homicide-bombing child-raping woman-torturing bloodthirsty Jihadist mass murderer. Stay classy, Miller. I imagine the voters of California are proud to have patriots like Rep. George Miller on the payroll.
Human rights activists say approved bill, making girls vulnerable to the ruling from age 13, ‘legalizes paedophilia’
Saeed Kamali Dehghan reports: Parliamentarians in Iran have passed a bill to protect the rights of children which includes a clause that allows a man to marry his adopted daughter and while she is as young as 13 years.
Activists have expressed alarm that the bill, approved by parliament on Sunday, opens the door for the caretaker of a family to marry his or her adopted child if a court rules it is in the interests of the individual child.
Iran’s Guardian Council, a body of clerics and jurists which vets all parliamentary bills before the constitution and the Islamic law, has yet to issue its verdict on the controversial legislation.
To the dismay of rights campaigners, girls in the Islamic republic can marry as young as 13 provided they have the permission of their father. Boys can marry after the age of 15. Read the rest of this entry »
Vilks had just given an interview to the derStandard.at journalist Teresa Eder in Rönnquist & Rönnquist gallery in Malmö when an unknown man entered the gallery. He said he wanted to show Vilks some artworks that were inside a red suitcase. Vilks’ bodyguards refused the man entry and asked him to display the contents of his suitcase in front of the gallery. When they discovered a gun inside, they subdued the man. Five minutes later the police were also on the scene.
