A Muslim Woman on Dating, Relationships, and Marriage

The Muslim problem with dating — if we can call it that — is almost always one of culture than religion. Having tried the ‘marriage experiment’ once, I know that religion doesn’t play a role in the day-to-day, but culture definitely does. The same problem exists when dating while Muslim. It’s not about whether the guy opens the door […]

Weaponizing Music: 1000 Musicians Rock “Seven Nation Army”

During the 2016 U.S. presidential election, the world realized we were at war with radical Islam – even though war was declared when globally against the West on September 11th, 2001. Years from now, the world will say we’re in a revolution. But the revolution has already started and it’s beautiful. It’s unlike anything we’ve […]

Group prayer mass meditation

What Does it Actually Mean to Pray for Something?

We bow our heads in prayer during invocations and benedictions. We offer prayers for “name that city” when a terrorist attack hits.  But between these moments, God is forgotten, faith is forgotten, humanity is forgotten. A prayer isn’t a spiritual pit-stop in our day, even if it happens five times a day.  A prayer isn’t […]

USCMO: An Inside Look at the US Council of Muslim Organizations

It’s difficult to identify the allegiance of a ship at sea when that ship keeps changing its sails. That scenario is no different from the Muslim Brotherhood, a notorious band of chameleons whose sails are stars and stripes, but in whose hearts soars the twin-sword flag of the Brotherhood. In the U.S., the Muslim Brotherhood […]

Qatar-based AJ+ Campaigns to Deny “Radicalization” Exists

Originally published with CounterJihad On September 20, 2001, George W. Bush declared a “Global War on Terror.” It had been just nine days after the attack on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, and the world was still unsure what this war would look like.

Egypt’s Al-Azhar University Sees Freedom as a “Ticking Time-Bomb.”

While the average Muslim will tell you Islam is a flawless faith passed from the Heavens to mankind in timeless perfection, the reality is that Islam is one of the most hybrid, evolving (and devolving) faiths. It is deeply complex. Much of what is seen as “Islam” today is Islamic law and interpretation codified into […]

Senator Ted Cruz Gets in Ring to Take on Radical Islam in “Willful Blindness” Hearing

On Tuesday, June 28, Senator Ted Cruz lead a critical Congressional hearing on the willful blindness of the Obama administration on the prohibition of language in the fight against radical Islam.

War on Terror: Language in an Asymmetrical War

There’s a concerted effort to manipulate a key weapon in the war on terror: language. In another article titled, “The Left’s New Strategy is to Deny ‘Muslim Radicalization’ Exists,” we see how foreign interests use proxy ideologies to subdue free speech and inquiry on extremism within Islam. To help better understand and discuss this critical […]

Film Review: Gulaab Gang

VICE calls them India’s Flux of Pink Ladies, a 400,000 strong army of women warriors clad in pink sarees and wielding staffs. They’re a new class of vigilante women in a country that has abandoned feminine sanctity, even though some Hindu gods are indestructibly powerful women. That sanctity was reclaimed in Gulaab Gang, an Indian […]

The Higher Jihad

By Azhar Khan The word “jihad” strikes a nerve among most Americans, Muslim or otherwise. For Westerners, jihad invokes images of an Islamic Red Dawn.
