From Kansas to Palestine, Hatred and Pie

jewish

So a 73 year old KKK member has just gone on a shooting spree in Kansas, killing three people. He specifically targeted people of the Jewish faith. For every Muslim who condemns the killings and extends their sympathies to the Jewish community, expect to be asked, "But what about Palestine?" Because now that the shooting has stopped, let the shame grenading begin. Read More »

We frequently hear the “I have a Dream” speech by Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. Children who attend school in the USA are taught quotes from this speech. History has re-written Dr. King just as a civil rights leader, but he was also an anti-war activist, an anti-materialist leader.   More than that he was the greatest anti-terrorist that this ...

An 'Īd gift was delivered to Nabila Rahman's home by Americans last year. A gruesome gift that blew her grandmother's body into pieces on a magical day that was supposed to be filled with joy. Nine-year old Nabila didn't get a rousing welcome that her country mate Malala Yousufzai received because she didn't fit the war on terror agenda.  A ... Read More »

Officials Claim Tunisian Women are Waging a ‘Sexual Jihad’ in Syria, But What’s the Real Story?

syrian-rebels-celebrating

By now you have probably already heard of the harem of Tunisian sex-warrior slaves heading to Syria in order to give up their young bodies to the appetites of deprived rebels to fulfill jihad al-Nikkah — “Sexual Jihad" — and are coming back to the country with bellies full of Jihadi babies. Unfortunately for what seems to be that blind spot people have when it comes to stories on Muslims and sex, there doesn’t seem to be any evidence of Tunisian female warriors going to fight a holy sex war.

George Bush's “war on terror” continues to deliver. Even if the context is different, the slogan continues to haunt civilians, especially Muslims.

The Egyptian interim government, led by American-trained Sissi,  is ... Read More »

Over the past two and a half years, Egyptians have become fairly desensitized to violence on the streets of their capital. Prior to 2011, virtually any crime beyond petty theft – let alone violent flare ups in public squares or massive processions against the authorities du jour – grabbed the attention of the Egyptian populace; it was simply outside the ...

By Nabil Ahmed Just when we thought Muslims had passed the days of negative, terrorism-attached attention, it feels as though they never left. Repeated cases of child grooming by “Muslims”, then the Boston Marathon bombing, and now the attempted beheading of a British soldier on the outskirts of London, means that all sorts of heinous attacks are associated with Islam. ...
