How Irrational Is ‘Islamophobia’?

A few headlines today at the Drudge Report: MUSLIMS TO OUTNUMBER CHRISTIANS ‘IN 50 YEARS’ REBELS CAPTURE PRESIDENTIAL PALACE IN YEMEN… Al-Qaida storms jail, frees 300 inmates… This morning, I quoted a young Canadian feminist blogger who denounced “Islamophobia” as racial prejudice and “baseless hatred” that causes “the suffering of countless victims.” Meanwhile, there is this breaking news: […]

‘Islamophobia … Baseless Hatred’?

An astonishing phenomenon of the 21st century is the perversely ironic way in which the Information Age has actually increased ignorance. With all the knowledge in the world just a quick Google search away, many people have somehow managed to seal themselves off inside cocoons of confirmation bias, where they only encounter narratives that fit […]

Poll Finds ‘Clear Majority’ of Americans Are Hopelessly Gullible Fools

That’s not the headline in the Washington Post, however: Poll: Clear majority supports nuclear deal with Iran We’re conducting diplomacy by referendum now?

The Motives of Moody Loners

Last month’s shooting in Chapel Hill, N.C., sparked a raging online argument over whether it was (a) an anti-Muslim hate crime or (b) a dispute over a parking space. The insistence that the motive for the crime was either one or the other omits the possibility that it was (c) both or (d) neither. The victims […]

ISIS Killer Identified as Computer Science Major Mohammed Emwazi

Don’t tell @MarieHarf this, but middle-class Muslims from England with university degrees become radical Islamic terrorists: The world knows him as “Jihadi John,” the masked man with a British accent who has beheaded several hostages held by the Islamic State and who taunts audiences in videos circulated widely online. But his real name, according to […]
