My name is Magdi Khalil, I am an American citizen and a resident of Virginia. My Facebook page can be found here. I currently work as an analyst researcher at an American institution. For over 20 years, I have been a well-known commentator on Middle Eastern affairs and the executive editor of international pages for […]
Most Americans today get their news through Facebook, and so the Leftist authoritarian Mark Zuckerberg’s words here are ominous: “For example, take the Wall Street Journal or New York Times. Even if you don’t read them or don’t agree with everything they write, most people have confidence that they’re high quality journalism. On the flip […]
Now, of course, he says he misunderstood the question. I’m sure it was posed to him in so garbled and complicated a fashion as to make ready comprehension impossible. This is the same fellow who repeatedly prevailed upon Facebook to repost his jihad videos: “after they blocked his account, that he had contacted other organisations […]
Facebook’s Vice President Joel Kaplan traveled to Pakistan last July to assure the Pakistani government that it would remove “anti-Islam” material. That endeavor had already started before Kaplan’s trip. In mid-February, traffic to Jihad Watch from Facebook dropped suddenly by 90% and has never recovered. We do not post any hateful or provocative material and […]
“Hate speech” is a subjective category. What is or is not classified as “hate speech” depends upon the preconceptions and perspectives of the one doing the judging. For Facebook, the judges are Sharia-compliant, and consider honest analysis of the motives and goals of jihad terrorists to be “hate speech.” Facebook’s Vice President Joel Kaplan traveled […]
“These Christian families needed to escape their homes after the photo of a Christian youth was shared on Facebook and individuals of the range were induced to kill him and consume the congregation. There are reports that a Muslim mob had likewise been composed to rebuff the Christian young man.” These are real threats. Look […]
Good. I hope they win a massive settlement and drive them all out of business. Each one has been cutting off its platform to foes of jihad terror. In February, referrals from Facebook and Twitter to Jihad Watch dropped by 90% and have never recovered. Google has changed its search results so that when one […]
Here is still more about how the social media giants are steadily choking off all material that looks at Islam with a critical eye. Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism are all fair game, but Islam is off limits, as our moral superiors move to impose Sharia blasphemy laws upon the West. “My dilemma with Facebook and […]
In the enlightened West, people aren’t arrested or jailed for criticizing Muhammad. They’re just excoriated as racist, bigoted Islamophobes, and shunned by all decent people, and concerted efforts are made to deny them access to all means of communication. Everyone the world over agrees that Muhammad, alone of all human beings, must never be criticized. […]
I spoke today in Virginia, at the Young America’s Foundation Great Beginnings Seminar for college and university students. It was refreshing to speak to a group of college students without being screamed at.
On August 29, I spoke at the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s Wednesday Morning Club in Los Angeles on the social media giants’ new practice of shutting down voices that don’t follow the Leftist agenda. Here is a transcript of the event: DAVID HOROWITZ: And I wanted to say that Robert Spencer is a very special […]
Google, Facebook and the rest wield more power than most governments. My latest in FrontPage: The secular Left and the proponents of Islamic blasphemy laws have a new issue on which they are making common cause: the quest to destroy the freedom of speech, the cornerstone of our democracy. After Charlottesville, the Left sees its […]
The video is still on YouTube. Apparently the social media giants are interested only in taking down material that opposes jihad terror.
In this new video, I discuss Facebook’s willing compliance with Sharia blasphemy laws, as indicated by Facebook’s Vice President Joel Kaplan traveling to Pakistan to assure the Pakistani government that material critical of Islam would be removed from Facebook.
A man in Britain was visited by police and told to take down his material that was critical to Islam from Facebook. He states: The officers themselves were polite and reasonable enough, however their message was somewhat chilling: it was insinuated that if I continued to post material which could be considered critical of Islam […]
Leave it to the Washington Post to ignore the real story — Facebook’s massive smearing of legitimate perspectives as “hate speech” and wholesale blocking or removal of counter-jihad material — and to focus on Muslims, and specifically the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations, as if they were the real victims of this censorship. In reality, […]
There are so many of these incidents now, this article could have been three times as long. My latest in Townhall: “Hate speech is not free speech,” the Left increasingly insists – particularly on college and university campuses. In my new book The Complete Infidel’s Guide to Free Speech (and Its Enemies), I show why […]
“Holocaust denial, incitement of hatred, as well as racist and anti-Semitic speech are all illegal under German law.” Holocaust denial is a fairly straightforward concept, as is anti-Semitic speech, but “incitement of hatred” and “racist” speech are much less clearly definable concepts. Who gets to decide what is “incitement of hatred” and “racism”? Why, the […]
I received this message from Steve Amundson of the Counter Jihad Coalition (CJC): The Counter Jihad Coalition Facebook page was put together to inform and educate people on the threat posed by Islamists and their goal of implementing Sharia. We would also report on public outreach events we hold at different venues, again reporting about […]
Maryam Namazie is a Marxist, which means that her opposition to Islam is just a matter of wanting to exchange one form of violent authoritarianism for another. She is a vicious Jew-hater who has spread “Palestinian” jihad propaganda. Namazie is also a liar, as she claims here that Pamela Geller and I have accused her […]
