The major candidates for the Republican nomination for the presidency, including Rick Santorum, Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich and Mike Huckabee, along with television personalities such as Bill Maher, routinely employ hate talk against Muslims as a way to attract votes or viewers. Right-wing radio and cable news, including Christian radio and television, along with websites such as Jihad Watch and FrontPage, spew toxic filth about Muslims over the airwaves and the Internet. But perhaps most ominously—as pointed out in “Manufacturing the Muslim Menace,” a report by Political Research Associates—a cadre of right-wing institutions that peddle themselves as counterterrorism specialists and experts on the Muslim world has been indoctrinating thousands of police, intelligence and military personnel in nationwide seminars.

Muslim?  Arab?  Potato - batatta

The US government has frozen the bank accounts belonging to Hatem Abudayyeh, a Palestinian community organizer and director of a social service organization serving the Arab community in Chicago, and his wife, Naima.

Meanwhile, several members of Congress have written to the Obama administration to express their concerns about violations in civil liberties as a result of earlier government actions toward Abudayyeh and other activists.

This is how they justify their wars in these Arab countries

Two Muslim religious leaders were asked to leave a commercial airliner in Memphis - and were told it was because the pilot refused to fly with them aboard.

Masudur Rahman and another imam had already been allowed to board their Delta Connection flight from Memphis, Tennessee, to Charlotte, North Carolina before they were asked to get off the plane.

Ironically, the two men were headed to a North American Imams conference discussing Islamophobia or fears of Islam and discrimination against American Muslims.

Robed Muslim clerics kicked off U.S. flight after pilot refuses to take off with them (and they were en route to conference on Islamophobia)

It goes a lot deeper than that, as the roots of this racism go back to the days of guys like Baldwin and Bohemond.

Killing Bin Laden might have been sweet revenge and given a boost to President Obama’s re-election chances, but when the glow is over its after-effects in terrorist retaliation will likely strike many countries, including the US itself. Yet none of this deflected America from its obsession with Bin Laden and its thirst for retribution. And it is precisely this assertion of primacy, where western needs have precedence over anyone else’s, in total disregard for the consequences to others that recalls the Palestinian example to mind.

A western decision to resolve Europe’s problem with its Jews led in 1948 to the creation of Israel in my homeland, Palestine. We were never consulted or involved, but we paid an exorbitant price for Israel’s establishment in lost lives, land, property, and even history. The underlying premise for this act was truly astounding: that another party, the Jews, no matter how tragic their sufferings, had a superior claim to my country than I did, that Jews had primary rights over my homeland because of their history in Europe which I, a native, could not challenge.

Yes but the Islamaphobia manufactures public consent for the wars.

I don't disagree; your point seems fairly obvious.  I'm just saying that these Islamophobes are tapping into a long-standing and possibly deeply-held prejudice in our western culture.  It's the same type of deeply-rooted prejudice that Hitler used against the Jews.

What would the reaction be among anti-western Muslims if they knew that Usamah bin Laden was not killed a few days ago? What if they knew he is alive and being tortured for information after which he would be killed days or months later? 

I think Usamah is alive and being tortured a little while before an unofficial execution takes place. No one could prove otherwise. The US Military Government does not operate on the basis of transparency or accountability to the public.

Who the fuck cares Fidel, Islamaphobia is real and SEEN, unlike Elvis bin laden or whatever. We still wouldn't know how muslims feel because no one gives a fuck enough to investigate. You need to hone your skills better on which threads to disrupt. You do a disservice to the NDP at times with your crossovers into international affairs. Stick to the national, you're NAILS!

Yes, first we killed the Aboriginals, and then we killed everyone else and now it is the Arabs turn.

NDPP, you've been warned repeatedly about posting anti-Semitic material on this site. That includes any articles which speculate or imply that Zionist Jews control the American media. I've removed your post and the follow up posts, which will be my practice from now on should you continue to accidentally post anti-Semitic material. If it becomes to look less like an accident, you will no longer be given the benefit of the doubt.

You are not entirely wrong, RevolutionPlease. The American military government surely does want you to fear and loathe Muslims.

But in reality the U.S. military government ♥'s militant Islam.

The posting was entirely legitimate and should not have been removed.

Elvis bin Laden denied any and all involvement in the 9/11 inside job.

And as a result of the incredulous 9/11 Commission cover-up, somewhere less than half the people surveyed around the world believe "Al-Qaeda" was responsible.

The commision's slip-shod report missing important facts and eye witness accounts has been compared to the allied forces allowing the former Nazis to conduct the Nuremberg trials. Not only were they not going to find themelves guilty, none of themselves were even held accountable.  And that's because they were planning to frame-up their own anti-communist jihadi mercenaries criss-crossing in and out of the U.S. with impunity since the 1980's.

If you are a proven anti-communist, then you are welcomed with open arms policies in the USA. Just ask Louis Posada Carriles and a parade of anti-Cuban terrorists provided sanctuary in America long time.

British SAS and the Navy Seals should storm the beaches of Florida and California because they would find terrorists and former Latin American dictators aplenty.

I intensely dislike the comment sections and content of many of the western MSM links that proliferate here relating to various oppressed communities, and I can't imagine how traumatizing it must be for survivors of this system to read that its all their fault, and that they're either lazy, looking for attention, not looking in the mirror at themselves or what not.  I have a list of these sites prepared that I'd like to submit for the purposes of exclusion from the board.

Whistleblower Sibel Edmonds says King of the Madrasas has been taking over U.S. taxpayer-funded charter schools.

The U.S. Government loves militant Islam in schools and scaring hell out of Americans and especially so since 9/11.

We should all be more like Uncle Sam and his puppets in Ottawa - we should embrace militant Islam with both arms and love it all the time.

The whole problem started when the Soviets ceded the cold war. It was like being stabbed in the backs for our cold warriors and the bipartisan war parties. They needed a new and legitimate enemy to justify trillion-dollar coporate welfare handouts to a few thousand private military contractors every year on-time, and so they created "Al Qa'eda", the invisible army of darkness which doth not now nor hath it ever existed.

Obama campaign brags about its whistleblower persecutions(September)

Glenn Greenwald wrote:
Leave aside that this is a total nonsequitur: the fact that Obama has persecuted whistleblowers hardly negates, or even pertains to, the charge that he has leaked classified information when doing so benefits him politically. Indeed, that's precisely what makes his behavior so pernicious: that his administration exploits secrecy laws to punish those who expose high-level wrongdoing while leaking at will for political gain.

And it all began well before the infamous Reichstag fire on 9/11/01 leading to herr Bushler's enabling act and attacks on American civil liberties. Bill Clinton's pro KLA/pro Qaeda regime was insisting on wiretap provisioning for all telecommunications equipment manufactured in the U.S. and Canada as early as the 1990's and on the quiet. The military dictatorship running America has been spying on the lives of millions of Americans for a long time while, and at the same time, allowing known anti-communist terrorists and Saudi, Pakistani and Egyptian  mercenaries for-hire to criss-cross in and out of the USA at will and with impunity for many years before 9/11/01.

The 9/11 hijackers and terrorists were all trained in America and Europe by the U.S. Military, British SAS, German BND and so on. It's enough to make Americans sick to their stomachs if only they knew. How the U.S. Military regime protected Mohammed Atta

We can only presume that the morans in charge love militant Islam. Best friends forever!

Islamophobia: A Bipartisan Project

The difference is that liberals will at least admit there are a few good Muslims before perpetrating mass murder for sport and profit. Republicans don't care who they insult before doing the same.
