There are 7.6 billion people in the world. And a full 24% of them — 1.8 billion — are fasting from sunup to sundown. And they want to kill the infidels.* Every day. For an entire month.
It’s Ramadan, the holiest month of the Muslim calendar. But what if you’re not a Muslim — just a caring, considerate person. Is there anything you should do so you don’t come across as insensitive to your fasting friends in the US?
Conservative author and radio host Mark Levin blasted the mainstream media’s coverage surrounding Israel’s response to the Palestinians’ violent protests following the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem. The media, Levin said, “have blood on their hands” for continuing to fall for the tactics of Hamas, who use human shields as props for the cameras so the press will unfairly blame the Israeli government for the violence.
The #MeToo movement has revealed the hypocrisy of prominent individuals in Hollywood who claim to support women’s rights, while at the same time serially violating them. Yet, an even more sinister hypocrisy in Hollywood still lies beneath the surface – under-reported, often unnoticed and sometimes blatantly denied. That is the alliance of Hollywood Lefists with Islamist organizations that present themselves as champions of multiculturalism and inclusion, but in reality oppose everything that the Left claims to hold dear.
Last night the riff on social media was that a white woman had shot up YouTube headquarters. Chuckling softly at Google staff inheriting the wind of the social chaos they are spreading, most of us turned the page, figuring that this one was going to be a mess. This morning brings no disappointment.
“BREAKING ‘Dangerous and devious’ Surrey teenager jailed for life for Parsons Green Tube bombing, in which 51 people injured’, read the social media post — earning a string of incredulous responses from users who felt the broadcaster was attempting to obscure Hassan’s origins as a supposed alleged ‘child refugee’.

That is the only reasonable conclusion you can reach from the Daily Beast’s article Thursday that exposed the identities of Pamela Geller’s four daughters and the subsequent decision of major and minor newspapers and magazines throughout the Western world to re-run the story.
Make no mistake – what has started with RT won’t end with RT. Our betters have decided they need to protect our minds from “propaganda” penetration that might cause us to doubt the truth of what CNN and the Washington Post tell us.
It’s true. I just searched the Star-Tribune website for Mahad Abdirahman. Nothing. Why not? Because Job One for the Star-Tribune, and the establishment media in general, is to make sure that no one has a negative view of Islam. Related to this is the media mission to make sure that no one thinks ill of Muslim migrants. Among those migrants, however, will inevitably be an unknowable number of jihad terrorists. So the Star-Tribune is contributing to ignorance and complacency about an issue that people need to know about, and is enabling more jihad activity.
