When I wrote my recent article "

Introduction: a short survey of the cuckoo's nest My initial idea was to begin with a definition of "Islamophobia" but after looking around for various definitions, I decided to use my own, very primitive definition. I will define Islamophobia as the belief that Islam (the religion) and/or Muslims (the adherents to this religion) represent some... Read More

During the past few decades an intellectual movement has arisen out of the ruins of what once passed for Western civilization. As the great narrative of secular humanism, materialism, and progress collapsed—its obituary was published by Lyotard as The Postmodern Condition—an odd constellation of nationalist and traditionalist thinking began shaking the foundations of Western intellectual...

Ever since the news broke on March 15 of two consecutive mass shootings at the Al Noor Mosque and Linwood Islamic Centre in Christchurch, New Zealand, corporate media has been determined to establish that suspect Brenton Tarrant acted alone in the terrorist attacks that took the lives of 50 innocent Muslim worshippers and wounded 50...

The mass murder and wounding of 97 Muslim worshipers in Christchurch, New Zealand (NZ) which took place on Friday, March 15, 2019, has profound political, ideological and psychological roots. First and most important, Western countries led by the Anglo-American world has been at war killing and uprooting millions of Muslims with impunity over the past... Read More
The New Islamophobia Looks Like the Old McCarthyism
These days, our global political alliances seem to shift with remarkable rapidity, as if we were actually living in George Orwell’s 1984. Are we at war this month with Oceania? Or is it Eastasia? In that novel, the Party is able to erase history, sending old newspaper articles down the Ministry of Truth’s “memory hole”... Read More
Here are a couple of questions for you: If, in this country, terrorism is to be fought by travel bans, if (as Donald Trump once Dylann Roof, who walked into Charleston’s Mother Emanuel AME church and gunned down nine black parishioners in June 2015, or majority of the 208 cases defined as terrorism in the...

Their "Proof" Is Not What They Say
Anti-Muslim activists in the United States were operating in a "post-truth era" and putting out "alternative facts" long before those phrases entered the language. For the last decade they have been spreading provable falsehoods through their well-organized network of publications and websites. A major theme of those falsehoods is telling the U.S. public that Islam... Read More

Islamophobia Enters the Government, Is Incorporated into the Law, and Becomes Increasingly Acceptable in America
Imagine that a nominee for secretary of state had shared platforms with white nationalist Richard B. Spencer and been given a major award by his National Policy Institute, which
Honestly, if you’re trying to grasp our strange new world, this couldn’t imagine crackpot by the name of Fred Fleitz. He previously was vice president for policy at Frank Gaffney’s

The True Right has always believed in strong leadership and the ability, as Thomas Carlyle wrote, of ‘great men’ to shape history. In his collection of lectures On Heroes, Hero-Worship and the Heroic in History, Carlyle identifies six types of hero: the Hero as Divinity, as Prophet, as Poet, as Priest, as Man of Letters...

Already Hell Enough for This Muslim-American
Understand this: I’m an American veteran. I’m also a Muslim-American in a country in which, in these years, that hasn’t exactly been the happiest category to fall into. Now, let me tell you a little story. Recently, I had an ominous dream. It was noon on a grey, cold January 20th, 2020, and Donald Trump... Read More
Islamophobe Mark Steyn
The Deceit and Double-Think of Mark Steyn
My late father simultaneously abhorred Muslims and adulated Jews. Muslims were savage, stupid and very bad for the West. Jews were civilized, intelligent and very good for the West. What more need be said? A lot, I thought. I pointed out that Muslims were in the West
Fighting Fundamentalism in America
I’m not an immigrant, but my grandparents are. More than 50 years ago, they arrived in New York City from Iran. I grew up mainly in central New Jersey, an American kid playing little league for the Raritan Red Sox and soccer for the Raritan Rovers. In 1985, I travelled with my family to our... Read More

Trump was right about 9/11 but they weren't Muslims
Senator Rand Paul, supported by a number of other congressmen,
Imagine if Anders Behring Breivik, the 32-year-old pale, blond, blue-eyed, 100% Norwegian, gun-crazy ultra right-wing Christian fundamentalist responsible for the car bombing in Oslo and the meticulous targeted assassinations at the island of Utoya that killed 93 people, was a Muslim immigrant. One does not even have to imagine it - as the concentric Western... Read More
When it comes to Islamophobia, good old Europe - which after all invented the Crusades - certainly has nothing to envy the United States. I'm already making plans to arrive at Terminal 2 of Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris in the spring of 2011 sporting my burqa. The cruel doubt is, which one? Shall... Read More
