Islamiphobia is on the rise in the West. The latest controversy is the opposition of construction of a mosque in the city of Marseilles, France–the most “Islamic city” in France. The opposition in France is led by the far right political party of Jean Marie Lepen. While the opposition of a mosque near ground zero is […]

Pastor Long is a hypocrite: A drowning man will clutch at a straw

The long-awaited address by Pastor Long has been a disappointment. He covered himself with a classic response to the allegations against him: following instructions from his lawyer. He didn’t deny the allegations and portayed himself as “not perfect”. Pastor Long should know that four lawsuits by four different men with four different stories is not a conspiracy. Pastor […]

Americans have honored the memory of the September 11 attack.

Pastor Terry Jones cancels Koran burning: It is only one bad palm tree that spoils the whole lot of palm wine

The more we approached 9/11, the more tension mounted between the US administration and Pastor Terry Jones. People condemned his intention to burn Korans on 9/11 in protest over the building of the mosque near Ground Zero. Pastor Jones is now claiming he has canceled the burning because the Imam has agreed not to build there. […]

Choose another location for the Islamic center: The sore is cured but the scar remains

The confrontation between supporters of the Islamic center near ground zero and opponents was unnecessary. While anybody has a right to express his opinion, it should not be an opportunity to spread Islamophobic sentiment. We all agree that Islam is not a synonym for terrorism, but Islam has been hijacked by Islamist extremists to terrorize the West. […]

Sarah Palin and Mark Williams Are Right This Time: The eyes are of little use if the mind be blind.

Sometimes, extremists score good points to which people don’t necessarly take time to listen. Allowing the building of a mosque near Ground Zero, the site of the 9/11 attack, is certainly the most stupid, unbelievable decision that the city of New York can make. Is the idea to please American Muslims? Or to show to the world that […]

From Civil Right to Bigotry: The lawyer’s pouch is a mouth of Hell.

How is it possible that Reverend Fred Phelps, a former civil rights lawyer who fought for Blacks in the 60s, now is the most hated anti-gay preacher in the country? How could he go from one extreme to the other? Was he just a fake to start with? Or did he experience some trauma that changed him forever? […]

This latest incident of terrorism involving a Nigerian citizen is bad luck for the whole country at a time when good people are trying to build a better […]

Terrorism: If you close your eyes to facts, you will learn through accidents.

A Nigerian man, claiming to be linked to Al-Qaeda, allegedly tried to set off an incendiary device aboard a transatlantic airplane Friday as it descended toward a Detroit airport, reminding us that the threat of terrorism can come from an unexpected direction. At this point, it is difficult to say if  Mr Abdul mutallab — […]
