Blasphemy Arrest in Pakistan

posted by Suzy Shuraym

A girl with Down’s syndrome has been arrested and charged with blasphemy in Pakistan.

You can read more about the incident here: “Pakistan disabled girl arrested for blasphemy”.

In my humble opinion, this is the kind of news that gives all Muslims a bad reputation. God knows this is not a crime.

Be Careful Out There

From NBC News:

“On Sunday and Monday, when Muslims will celebrate the end of Ramadan, even many who are less observant the rest of the year will be at mosques to pray. But many worshippers will celebrate amid heightened security after a recent spike in attacks on mosques and other places of worship.”

“19,250 Deadly Islamic Attacks”

According to the Huffington Post, “Pamela Geller…has posted a new, large billboard on the Metro-North train platform in Hartsdale. ‘19,250 DEADLY ISLAMIC ATTACKS SINCE 9/11/2001,’ the sign reads. ]IT’S NOT ISLAMOPHOBIA. IT’S ISLAMOREALISM.'”

Have you seen this billboard? What’s your response?

The sham “terrorism expert” industry

posted by Suzy Shuraym

A detailed examination of the topic (read it all here) by Salon.com‘s Glenn Greenwald explains just how “common group identity and career interest” is used by a group of “terrorism experts” to sustain “the myth of the Grave Threat of Islamic Terror in order to justify their fear-based careers”.

Truthfully, the “menace of Islamic terrorism…is wildly exaggerated…, [and] is sustained by ugly sentiments of Islamophobic bigotry”.

But we already knew this, right?
