Basheer Jones Hates America. He Wants to Be Mayor of Cleveland.

My latest in PJ Media: Basheer Jones is a Cleveland city councilman and a candidate for mayor of Cleveland in the upcoming September 14 primary election. He is also unusually forthright, even for a twenty-first-century Democratic politician, about his contempt for the land in which he seeks elected office. Jones is a devout, observant Muslim, and […]

AN AMERICAN STORY: Tennessee Girl Discards Christianity, Becomes Climate Change Activist, Joins ISIS

My latest in PJ Media: Ariel Bradley wasn’t even the only Islamic jihadi from Chattanooga, Tennessee. On July 17, 2015, a fellow resident of the Chattanooga suburb of Hixson, Mohammad Abdulazeez, murdered four Marines at a Navy base in Chattanooga. This delighted Bradley, who wrote: “Gifted this morning not only with Eid but w/ the news of […]

Over 1,500 American Rabbis Agree: ADL is NOT ‘Competent’ to Combat Anti-Semitism

Over 1,500 rabbis agree that the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is “no longer competent to identify, let alone combat, antisemitism.’” An ADL spokesperson, describing the new initiative, wrongly claimed that “Anti-Israel activism in and of itself is not antisemitism” and that they would need to “carefully evaluate” student government resolutions supporting BDS, the international Boycott, Divestment, […]

Big Tech is Censoring Americans Using United Nations Law

The UN and Big Tech are running a secret “No Fly List” for the internet. Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism. White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki warned that her administration was “flagging problematic posts for Facebook” and […]

Jewish Voice for Peace Linked to Pro-Jihad Anti-Israel ‘Intifada’ Rally in Brooklyn

As I explained here, that rally featured calls for violence against Jews worldwide, and for the total destruction of Israel, which would almost certainly result in a new genocide of the Jews. But for Jewish Voice for Peace, Leftism is their religion and ethnicity, and so this is fine. Jewish Voice for Peace linked to anti-Israel […]

The Social Media Giants Find A Violent Extremist: Me

So since I watch terrorists, I’ve been watching myself. My latest in FrontPage: As the director of Jihad Watch, I have an ongoing interest in the activities of violent extremists, and have been tracking those activities daily for eighteen years now. But now, in their benevolence, Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter, and YouTube have made it easier than ever with […]

Rep. Omar Wants to Replace July 4th With Muslim Heritage Month

July is when families load up screaming kids into a minivan for a road trip, when water parks overflow with the smells of cotton candy and chlorine, and Chicago shootings reach highs only previously witnessed in minor South American wars. Sprinklers rotate over dying lawns and glorious fireworks rise into the sky over a American […]

NYC: ‘Palestinian’ jihad supporters scream ‘Globalize the intifada,’ ‘We don’t want two states, we want all of it’

This would require the total destruction of Israel and the genocide of millions of Jews. Meanwhile, the call to globalize the intifada heralds more violence against Jews worldwide. Protestors in New York cry ‘Globalize the intifada’ at demonstration by Jeremy Sharon, Jerusalem Post, August 1, 2021 (thanks to The Religion of Peace): Several hundred protesters took part […]

Georgetown’s Bridge Initiative: Manufactured ‘Islamophobia’

Georgetown University’s Bridge Initiative, a project of its Saudi-founded Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding (ACMCU), claims it exists to combat the pernicious spread of “Islamophobia.” ACMCU’s June 30 webinar featuring former Bridge research fellow Jordan Denari Duffner offered further evidence that Bridge’s real mission is to depict all Muslims as victims and silence critical commentary on Islam. Like […]

‘Batman’ cartoonist Frank Miller dropped from comic convention over accusation of ‘anti-Muslim hate’

Frank Miller himself is not defending “Holy Terror,” so I’m certainly not going to defend it on his behalf, and I don’t endorse torture or killing of innocent people, as his hero seems to in the illustration. But that is not what the controversy is about here. It’s over the claim that “Holy Terror” is […]

Secret Iran Plans to Hack Infrastructure in Western Countries Revealed

Now comes news that “five secret documents allegedly showing Iranian plans to hack infrastructure in Western countries, including in Europe.” Leaked documents that were obtained by Sky News were “actual internal planning documents for Unit 13, […]

PayPal, MasterCard, Banks Act Against Dissenters from Leftist Agenda — Including Foes of Jihad Terror

What’s coming has been absolutely clear for quite some time. And it’s coming fast now. If they can do it to me, they can do it to you. And they will.

Cleveland’s Baseball Team Dishonors the Indian It Was Named For

One of the most idiotic of the Left’s assumptions is that sports team nicknames are intended to insult and demean. My latest in FrontPage: Many, many years ago, long before any of you who are reading this were born, and long, long before Major League Baseball went woke, pulled the All-Star Game out of Atlanta for […]

Ben & Jerry’s Board Chair Supports Jihad Terror Against Israel, has Defended Hamas and Hizballah

What would have been surprising would have been if Ben and Jerry’s had a Board chair who opposed jihad violence and Sharia oppression of women. Meet Ben & Jerry’s Board Chair: Anti-Israel Activist Has Published Defenses of Hezbollah, Hamas by Alana Goodman, Washington Free Beacon, July 23, 2021: Ben & Jerry’s board chairwoman isn’t your average […]

U.S. borders open to any and all, including jihad terrorists — but not Cubans fleeing Communism

Recently the Cuban people did an almost unheard-of thing. Risking life and limb, they took to the streets to protest their horrific treatment under the Communist regime that has kept the nation in slavery since the putsch that put the Castro brothers in power in 1959. Today, the Cuban people have had enough as the […]

Are Biden’s Handlers Making Room for Right-Wing ‘Terrorists’ at Guantanamo?

My latest in PJ Media: The establishment media agrees that Biden’s handlers’ freeing of Taliban jihadi Abdul Latif Nasser from Guantanamo, where he had been held for nineteen years, was the first step toward taking care of more unfinished business from the Obama administration and finally closing the notorious prison camp. But is that really the […]

Hamas-linked Associated Press Whitewashes Hamas’ Responsibility for Suffering of Gaza Children

In the aftermath of the bombing of the Associated Press offices in Gaza, which also housed Hamas, there were two possibilities regarding AP. One was that they really didn’t know Hamas was in the building, in which case they were the worst reporters on the planet. Or else AP knew Hamas was there, and was fine […]
