20 years after 9/11, Islamophobia continues
to haunt Muslims

Original Article

Sept. 11, 2001, marked the start of a new era for Muslims in the United States. Shortly after al-Qaida terrorists attacked the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, many Muslims, as well as other Arab Americans, became the targets of anger and racism. Mosques were burned or destroyed and death threats and harassment followed many Muslims in the weeks following the attacks, according to congressional testimony from the Southern Poverty Law Center in 2011. Some victims were beaten, attacked or held at gunpoint for merely being perceived as Muslim, the organization said. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., who is Muslim, reflected on


Most of us are haunted by remembering nearly 3,000 people burned or crushed to death. Ilhan and her ilk want play the victim card.

A phobia is an unnatural fear. It is not unnatural to fear people who want to kill you. Therefore, islamophobia does not exist.

Mosques were burned? I don't remember that. Some graffitti. Some broken windows, maybe. This sounds like BS. In the Muslim world, 230+ people died in riots over freakin' CARTOONS of Muhammad. And the offices of a magazine staff was shot up.

Mosques were burned and destroyed? I don't recall that many mosques being burned, or destroyed. There may have been some attempts, but mosques were protected by a police as soon as some attempts were made. As for death threats and harassments against Muslims, you bet there were, and for good reason. What didn't do, is round up every Muslim and put them in camps like we did to the Japanese back during WWII. If 9/11 haunts Muslims, they sure as hell don't act like it, and even if it does, they and their so called religion earned it.

Yes, it's just "Islamophobia." What could possibly be wrong with these American's who, for no reason, show disdain for innocent people simply because they exist? Racist, bigots. Twenty years later they are our partners. We have been told that they are now "cooperative and businesslike" and that was AFTER they killed thirteen of our own, one hundred plus Afghan's and injured several hundred more. How unreasonable to be fearful of the guys in the videos who are beheading, stoning, beating and whipping innocent women and children in the streets. Those who are going door to door killing the people who helped us using the list supplied by our "woke" morons in the Pentagon. This is happening TODAY and we're being told we aren't seeing what we are seeing. Can they really be so stupid that they complain about the exclusivity and lack of women in the "government" of the Taliban? That is insane. In the past twenty years there have been no mass executions of Muslims in the U.S. I haven't seen the videos of average Americans punching Muslim women in the face on our streets. We actually coexist with the average Muslim American pretty well. Radical Islamist's kill their countrymen everyday because they are not the right kind of Muslim. Ilhan Omar is the face of the radical Muslim. We should send her over, along with the other squad members to advise our new friends on inclusion. AOC can lecture them on everything. Maybe enlighten them on Climate Change? I hope they get it all on video. That encounter could be very satisfying to watch.

Over 1300 years after the start of Islam's "relatively peaceful" conquest of Africa, Europe and Asia, you would think the word, "islamaphobia" would indicate a healthy state of mind.

Hate crimes against Muslims rose 1617% from 2000 to 2001!!!!!! Sez the FBI from 12>>>> 98(claimed, some were found later to be fake, self committed)... few if any which were violent, none resulting in a death. NONE resulted in mass casualties, mass shootings, beheadings in the street, slashing attacks, cars/trucks driven through crowds...yet "Muslims" have since done ALL of those things. Sudden Jihad Syndrome "could" happen to anyone, any color, any religion, not just Muslims.... but it doesn't.

"Islamophobia"-Fear of POLITICAL Islam, by politicians, police and even the FBI. Which has resulted in hundreds of deaths at the hands of "Known Wolf" killers, that the FBI KNEW about but did not stop.(Recently 'down under' they put a year long, full time, around the clock, group of TEAMS of police to constantly monitor ONE Musilm, though likely have similar teams following others...he was still able to attack and stab a dozen people before the cops could shoot him less than one minute after he commenced)

Ported you CM 732 n March 1785, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams went to London to negotiate with Tripoli’s envoy, Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdrahaman (or Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja). When they enquired “concerning the ground of the pretensions to make war upon nations who had done them no injury”, the ambassador replied: “It was written in their Koran, that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every mussulman who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to paradise. He said, also, that the man who was the first to board a vessel had one slave over and above his share, and that when they sprang to the deck of an enemy’s ship, every sailor held a dagger in each hand and a third in his mouth; which usually struck such terror into the foe that they cried out for quarter at once.” The Taliban and all of the followers of islam believe the same trash today. Why? Because that is exactly what islamic doctrine teaches. Read the Koran, Hadith, and Sira yourself. Islam’s goal is to subjugate the world under their barbaric 7th century misogynistic sharia law. 1) convert or 2) pay the repressive jizyah tax and be humiliated as an islamic dhimmi slave or 3) die Wake Up People. Don’t be an islamic dhimmi slave.

In several Quranic passages as well as the example of Muhammad, Muslims are encouraged to deceive non-Muslims when it will help protect Islam. It is known as the principle of "taqiyya" or "religious deception." This is less surprising if you first understand that in mainstream Islamic teachings, the world is divided into "the house of Islam" and "the house of war." That is, part of the world is Islamic and the other part has yet to brought into the light with Allah's holy law (Sharia). And since relations with the non-Islamic part of the world exists in a state of war, then deceit is an appropriate strategy, used by all military commanders since the beginning of warfare. As Raymond Ibrahim wrote, the Quranic verses 3:28 and 16:106, as well as Muhammad’s famous assertion, “War is deceit,” have all led to the formulation of a number of doctrines of "taqiyya.” And this is not an obscure point of theology. It is being practiced today by devout Muslims. This explains the religious underpinnings of all this supposed "anti-Islamic" activity--it is a series of lies, based on falsehoods, buttressed by utterly shameless deceit, which will continue until the Dar al Harb is conquered and all are required to submit to the Mohammedans' will or die.

Actions speak louder than words. Muslim actions since 2001 have been much worse than any mean words directed at them. In fact, they usually take actions against any words about Islam. Those actions are not good ones and greatly contribute to fear of Muslims/Islam. The people who represent Islam are not very good examples of a "religion of peace".

ABC News, go hump a lump. If any muslims feel haunted by "islamophobia," then maybe they have a guilty conscience. There is no such thing as islamophobia, it is a made-up term to try to deflect attention away from the evils of the radical extremists that act out the literal teachings of the koran. Anyone using a "phobia" term relating to political ideology should immediately be ignored.

All those Christians and Hindus who ended up as part of a mountain of skulls throughout the Middle East and Northern India no doubt suffered from "islamophobia" as well. Do Jews suffer a phobia of Nazis? Or is it perhaps a well-founded fear? How can an American media company lecture us about islamophobia on the anniversary of 9/11? Muslims are not haunted by 9/11. They celebrate it. If they are haunted by fears that someone may hate them, all they have to do is stop their jihad against the world. We will never submit. Not to muslims, Not to socialists. Not to a demonic one world government.

Sept. 11, 2001, marked the start of a new era for Muslims in the United States. Shortly after al-Qaida terrorists attacked the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, many Muslims, as well as other Arab Americans, became the targets of anger and racism. Mosques were burned or destroyed and death threats and harassment followed many Muslims in the weeks following the attacks, according to congressional testimony from the Southern Poverty Law Center in 2011. Some victims were beaten, attacked or held at gunpoint for merely being perceived as Muslim, the organization said. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., who is Muslim, reflected on

Millions of workers are facing new federal vaccine rules in the wake of President Joe Biden's order on Thursday that large employers require their staffs to be vaccinated, or implement weekly COVID-19 testing for workers who are not. The new requirement applies to employers with at least 100 workers, potentially affecting more than 80 million people. Another 20 million who work with or for the federal government will have to be vaccinated. Vaccine mandates are legal as long as employees can seek accommodations for legitimate medical or religious reasons, most experts say. And a survey released last month by business

On Thursday, Biden announced a series of vaccine requirements from the White House that could apply to as many as 100 million Americans as part of an aggressive push to stem the surge of COVID-19. The requirement impacts federal employees as well as large employers, among other sectors.

The producer price index accelerated 0.7% for the month, above the 0.6% Dow Jones estimate. On a year-over-year basis, the gauge rose 8.3%, which is the biggest annual increase since records have been kept going back to November 2010. The data comes amid heightened inflation fears fed by supply chain issues, a shortage of various consumer and producer goods and heightened demand related to the Covid-19 pandemic. Federal Reserve officials expect inflationary pressures

A White House plan to mandate COVID-19 vaccination or repeated testing for around two-thirds of U.S. workers announced on Thursday could be hampered by supply challenges as COVID-19 test manufacturers strain to keep pace with demand. U.S. President Joe Biden will require all federal employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19 and the U.S. Department of Labor will issue a rule requiring private businesses with more than 100 employees to have their workers vaccinated or tested weekly, officials said on Thursday. Around 25% of the approximately 255 million Americans 18 years of age and older have not yet received a COVID-19

Many media and political figures expressed outrage online after former President George W. Bush appeared to use his speech commemorating the 20th anniversary of 9/11 to compare January 6 Capitol protesters to the Islamic terrorists who viciously attacked America, killing nearly three thousands innocents and wounding more than double that number.Speaking at the 9/11 memorial service for Flight 93 in Pennsylvania, Bush recalled the September 11 attacks while warning of future terrorist threats to the United States.“We have seen growing evidence that the dangers to our country can come not only across borders but from violence that gathers within,” he said.

I held off on writing about the “F*** Joe Biden” chants that began at college football games a couple of weeks ago. I had three reasons. First, I’m not a fan of obscenities because I think they cheapen speech. Second, these chants were initially small groups at Southern colleges, which really didn’t seem like a “thing.” Third, I wasn’t going to get excited until I learned whether the chants had legs. Well, it turns out they do have legs and they’re becoming large chants at multiple games (including New York baseball games). And most importantly, Joe Biden knows about them and isn’t happy.

Lowville, New York—Lewis County General Hospital will stop delivering babies after September 24 because too many maternity unit workers have resigned over COVID vaccination mandates. That’s according to Lewis County Health System Chief Executive Officer Gerald Cayer, who held a news conference Friday in Lowville. He said 6 employees in the maternity unit resigned rather than get a COVID shot and another 7 are undecided. According to Cayer, the hospital will be unable to safely staff the unit and will pause delivering babies after September 24.(Snip)Cayer said 165 hospital employees have yet to be vaccinated against COVID-19; that’s 27 percent of the workforce.

Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer said on this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday” that they did not hear President Donald Trump’s 2020 election case because it did not meet “normal criteria.” Anchor Chris Wallace said, “One of your arguments against seeing the court’s political is the fact that it refused to even hear the appeals from the Trump campaign about the 2020 election. Didn’t even hear it them.” In a video, former President Donald Trump said, “No judge has had the courage, including the Supreme Court — I am so disappointed in them...

George W. Bush appeared at Shanksville, Pennsylvania, on Saturday to honor those who died on 9/11. It was an interesting speech, but not necessarily in a good way. (snip) Bush said that Islamic violent extremists are the same as domestic violent extremists when it comes to their “disregard of human life.” The big question is whether Bush was referring to Antifa and BLM or to the January 6 protesters—and, interestingly, everybody assumes he was speaking about the latter. (snip) Considering that the January 6 protesters killed no one and destroyed nothing, the words are inapposite to them. They apply perfectly to BLM and Antifa

There’s a reason that the folks who plan Joe Biden’s days decided that he shouldn’t give any official remarks today as he visited the three 9/11 sites for remembrance ceremonies. I think they knew that if he opened his mouth and stuck his foot in it on such a solemn occasion, this time it would be before the world and it would be too hard for media to ignore. So as we reported earlier, they prerecorded some remarks for him where he spoke, gazing off into the distance, about “unity,” and looking like death warmed over. He did show up at the 9/11 ceremony at Ground Zero and then later

Americans are fuming and pessimistic at this time, that’s for sure. A new CNN poll finds that 74% of U.S. adults now say they are “very or somewhat angry” about the way things are going in the U.S. today—that includes 88% of Republicans, 70% of independents and even 67% of Democrats. But wait, there’s more. Another 69% of U.S. adults now say that things are going “pretty or very badly” in the country these days—that includes 91% of Republicans, 72% of independents and 49% of Democrats. And by the way, illegal immigration is still a concern for many in this nation. The CNN survey also found that 77%

The wheels of insanity in the OBiden Administration are about to fall off again. Rather than solidifying President Trump’s policy of peace in the Middle East, OBiden’s actions are likely to blow the entire region up into another OBiden mess. President Trump went to the Middle East and visited world religious leaders on his first overseas visit in an effort to bring peace to the Middle East. President Trump inherited ISIS terrorizing the Middle East as well as Iran and both these terrorist entities were backed by the OBiden gang. President Trump’s strategy was peace, not horror and destruction.

San Francisco—The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America installed its first openly transgender bishop in a service held in San Francisco's Grace Cathedral on Saturday. The Rev. Megan Rohrer will lead one of the church's 65 synods, overseeing nearly 200 congregations in Northern California and northern Nevada. “My call is… to be up to the same messy, loving things I was up to before,” Rohrer told worshippers. “But mostly, if you'll let me, and I think you will, my hope is to love you and beyond that, to love what you love.”
