  • Representative André Carson (D-Indiana), a convert to Islam, was appointed to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Carson has extensive ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

  • Officials at the Rocky Heights Middle School in Littleton, Colorado, ignited controversy when they told female students to dress according to Sharia law while visiting a mosque during a field trip.

  • Islamic politics "advocates the world's greatest double standard: if you come to our country, we won't let you worship the way you want, we won't let you say what you want to say... However, we have come to your country, therefore we have the right to do whatever we want to do, including kill you if you make us mad." — Former US President Bill Clinton.

  • Fouad ElBayly, an Egyptian-born imam who in 2007 said that Somali-born activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali should receive the death penalty for her criticism of Islam, is now a Department of Justice contractor hired to teach classes to Muslims who are in federal prison. – The Daily Caller

  • "I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under Allah...." – Arabic rendering of the Pledge of Allegiance, Pine Bush High School, New York.

  • Breitbart News revealed the existence of what is believed to be the first official Sharia law court in the United States, in Irving, Texas. The so-called Islamic Tribunal settles civil disputes among the growing Muslim population.

The Muslim population of the United States surpassed 3.5 million in 2015, according to demographic projections compiled by the Pew Research Center. In percentage terms, Muslims currently comprise roughly 1% of the US population.

As in Europe, Islam was an ever-present topic in American newspaper headlines during 2015. Most news items involved terrorism-related issues — including many cases of lone-wolf terrorists — closely followed by articles about Muslim integration and assimilation.


January 6. Officials at the Rocky Heights Middle School in Littleton, Colorado, ignited controversy when they told female students to dress according to Sharia law while visiting a mosque during a field trip. Peter Boyles, a radio talk show host in Denver, said: "Public schools are forbidden from holding girls to different standards than boys. They're holding these girls to a different standard, it's a religious reason. Islam dictates many ... repressive practices against women.... That's their belief ... but don't apply it to public school kids."

January 7. Hashim Hanif Ibn Abdul-Rasheed, a 41-year-old Muslim armed with two knives taped to his legs, attempted to buy a plane ticket at the Port Columbus International Airport in Columbus, Ohio. Abdul-Rasheed was shot after he lunged at a police officer. Police said his behavior was "consistent with someone who intended to hijack an aircraft."

January 9. Abdalah Mohamed, a 19-year-old migrant from Kenya, was arrested after he threatened to kill the owner of a Jewish delicatessen in Portland, Oregon. Police said Mohamed entered the store asking for a single cigarette. When the owner replied that he did not sell individual cigarettes, Mohamed reportedly said: "I will blow up your store. I'm going to take care of you, you mother (redacted). I'll call my people to take care of you to shoot you! I will blow up your store in the name of Allah, I will take care of people like you!"

January 12. ISIS sympathizers hacked the official Twitter account of the US Central Command, the Pentagon division in charge of the Middle East. One tweet sent from CENTCOM's account stated: "American soldiers, we are coming, watch your backs." Another tweet said: "ISIS is already here.... With Allah's permission we are in CENTCOM now."

January 13. Representative André Carson (D-Indiana), a convert to Islam, was appointed to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Carson, who has extensive ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, is the first Muslim to sit on the committee.

January 14. Christopher Lee Cornell, a 20-year-old convert to Islam, was arrested in Cincinnati, Ohio, for plotting to "wage jihad" by attacking the US Capitol. Cornell and his accomplice, who was actually an FBI informant, planned to detonate pipe bombs and gun down lawmakers. Cornell, whose Muslim name is Raheel Mahrus Ubaydah, had bought two M-15 rifles and 600 rounds of ammunition. He had also posted messages and videos espousing support for ISIS.

Right: Christopher Lee Cornell, a convert to Islam, was arrested in Cincinnati, Ohio, for plotting to "wage jihad" by attacking the US Capitol. Cornell planned to detonate pipe bombs and gun down lawmakers.

January 14. Shelton Thomas Bell, a 21-year-old convert to Islam from Jacksonville, Florida, was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison for attempting to provide material support to terrorists. According to court documents, Bell "conspired to train and prepare as a combatant for overseas violent jihad, then travel from Jacksonville to the Middle East for the ultimate purpose of providing the skills to terrorists, including members of Ansar al-Sharia in Yemen."

As part of his training, Bell conducted a late-night "jihadi training mission" that involved destroying religious statues in a multi-denominational cemetery in Jacksonville. He also uploaded training and recruiting videos onto the Internet, including one in which he makes homemade pipe bombs and another in which he burns an America flag.

January 15. Carol Swain, a prominent professor of law and political science at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, penned an op-ed in The Tennessean titled, "Charlie Hebdo attacks prove critics were right about Islam." She wrote:

"What horrendous attack would finally convince us that Islam is not like other religions in the United States, that it poses an absolute danger to us and our children unless it is monitored better than it has been under the Obama administration?

"More and more members of the PC [politically correct] crowd now acknowledge that Islam has absolutely nothing in common with Christianity...


"It becomes clearer every day that Islam is not just another religion to be accorded the respect given to Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Baha'i and other world religions. The Jan. 7 terrorist attack resulting in 12 deaths at the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo, a satirical magazine that committed the apparently unpardonable sin of lampooning the Prophet Muhammad, once again illustrates that Islam is a dangerous set of beliefs totally incompatible with Western beliefs concerning freedom of speech, freedom of assembly and freedom of association."

Vanderbilt's Muslim Students Association said Swain's "hurtful, inciting comments" had caused "a great deal of emotional distress and frustration." Swain responded: "Why are today's university students so fragile they need counseling and affirmation whenever they hear something that makes them uncomfortable? Learning how to deal with your emotions is part of growing up."

January 15. Former US President Bill Clinton, appearing on NBC's Late Night with Seth Meyers, said Islamic politics "advocates the world's greatest double standard: if you come to our country, we won't let you worship the way you want, we won't let you say what you want to say, we won't let you do what you want to do. However, we have come to your country, therefore we have the right to do whatever we want to do, including kill you if you make us mad."

January 15. Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, canceled its plan to use the gothic bell tower of its chapel for the adhan, an amplified call to prayer for Muslims. The about-face followed criticism from many corners, including from Christian evangelist Franklin Graham, who wrote:

"As Christianity is being excluded from the public square and followers of Islam are raping, butchering, and beheading Christians, Jews, and anyone who doesn't submit to their Sharia Islamic law, Duke is promoting this in the name of religious pluralism. I call on the donors and alumni to withhold their support from Duke until this policy is reversed."

January 17. A conference in Garland, Texas, aimed at "defeating Islamophobia," featured several Muslim extremists who advocate the implementation of Sharia law in the United States. The conference, titled, "Stand with the Prophet in Honor and Respect," was billed as "not an event" but the "beginning of a movement. A movement to defend Prophet Muhammad, his person, and his message."

January 18. The New York Post reported that Muslim groups are pressing the New York Police Department to remove a report about Islamic terrorism from its website. The groundbreaking, 90-page report, titled, "Radicalization in the West: The Homegrown Threat," angers critics who say it promotes "religious profiling" and discrimination against Muslims. Others argue that removing the report would send the message that the NYPD is backing down on its counterterrorism effort in the name of political correctness.

January 19. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, addressing the London-based Henry Jackson Society, warned that "non-assimilationist Muslims" pose a danger to Europe and the United States. He said:

"In America we are quite happy to welcome freedom loving people, regardless of religion, who want to abide by our laws allowing for freedom of expression and a host of other democratic freedoms. But we will never allow for any sect of people to set up their own areas where they establish their own set of laws.


"For example, Sharia law is not just different than our law, it's not just a cultural difference, it is oppression and it is wrong. It subjugates women and treats them as property, and it is antithetical to valuing all of human life equally. It is the very definition of oppression. We must stop pretending otherwise.


"I favor robust debate on everything: on religion, on policy, on politics, on everything. It is called freedom. But when debate stops, and when a movement decides that they no longer want to debate their ideas, but rather they want to simply subdue, silence, and kill those who disagree ... that is called terrorism, barbarism, and inhuman behavior, and it cannot and must not be tolerated."

January 20. The US Supreme Court unanimously ruled that Arkansas corrections officials had violated the religious liberty rights of Muslim inmates by forbidding them to grow beards. The case concerned Gregory H. Holt, also known as Abdul Maalik Muhammad, who sought to grow a half-­inch beard.

January 20. Montana State Senator Janna Taylor introduced Montana Senate Bill 199, which establishes "the primacy of Montana law by prohibiting the application of foreign law when it violates a fundamental right guaranteed by the Montana or United States Constitution." The bill is aimed at restricting the use of Islamic Sharia and other foreign law in the state.

January 21. The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) complained that the movie "American Sniper" was spurring threats against American Muslims. ADC President Samer Khalaf said it did not make sense to call for a boycott of the film, given its box office success: "If we boycott it, it will only cause people to want to see it more."

January 22. Malak Kazan, a 27-year-old Muslim woman, filed a religious discrimination lawsuit in Detroit, Michigan, accusing the Dearborn Heights Police Department of violating her First Amendment right to religious freedom when she was forced to remove her head scarf, after being arrested for driving with an expired license. Dearborn Heights Police Chief Lee Garvin said:

"Articles such as hats, caps, hijabs, can contain concealable items that could pose a threat or chance of injury to the cops or to themselves. Our procedure is to have them take the hijab off in the presence of a female. We don't always have enough female officers present in the station. Our number one concern is security of our officers and the prisoners."

Kazan's lawyer, Amir Makled, disagreed:

"The main issue here is that my client's constitutional rights, her religious liberties, can't be stripped at the jailhouse door. She has an absolute right to maintain her faith. We hope this cause of action will bring to light a policy that is dated and needs to be amended.... We also hope to get some further diversity training for officers in the city. Hopefully this will be a learning experience for other law enforcement agencies."

January 23. Addressing the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, US Secretary of State John Kerry said that Muslims should not be blamed for Islamic terrorism: "The biggest error that we could make would be to blame Muslims collectively for crimes ... [that] the overwhelming majority of Muslims oppose."

January 23. A federal judge in Denver, Colorado gave a four-year prison sentence to Shannon Maureen Conley, a 19-year-old woman who admitted to wanting to become an ISIS bride and join the jihad in the Middle East. Conley is one of the first Americans to be sentenced for conspiracy to support ISIS. Prosecutors hope her sentence has a deterrent effect.

January 23. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) filed legislation to ban American citizens who fight alongside ISIS and other terror groups from returning to the United States.

January 28. The Natomas Pacific Pathways Prep, a public charter school in Sacramento, California, sponsored an official "Hijab Day" in cooperation with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

January 28. The US State Department hosted a delegation of Muslim Brotherhood operatives for a meeting about their ongoing efforts to overthrow the government of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.

January 30. The Refugee Women's Alliance, one of the largest refugee and immigrant service providers in Seattle, Washington, was forced to close in anticipation of a protest against one of its head teachers, Deepa Bhandaru, who led a discussion about free speech and religious pluralism in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo massacre. A group of Somali immigrants demanded that Bhandaru be fired for showing some of the Hebdo cartoons in her class. Bhandaru, who has received an "excellence in teaching" award from the University of Washington, was placed on paid leave while the agency "investigates" the matter.


February 2. Darlene Hider, a 32-year-old Muslim-American woman who lives in Dearborn, Michigan, said she was harassed on a Delta Airlines flight because she was wearing an Islamic headscarf: "I felt as if I wanted to defend myself but I couldn't because of the Islamophobia going on." Others, however, said her children were being disruptive.

The president of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, Samer Khalaf, said: "We encourage Delta to take immediate steps to rectify this matter."

But Hider says she wants more than a simple apology: "I want justice for every woman who wears a scarf and who's Muslim and doesn't have to worry about being on a plane or in a restaurant or a mall, or walking down the street... That is what I'm standing up for and I will not be quiet."

February 6. Army Secretary John McHugh approved awarding the Purple Heart and its civilian counterpart, the Secretary of Defense Medal for the Defense of Freedom, to victims of the November 2009 shooting at Fort Hood, Texas. Thirteen people were killed and more than 30 wounded in the attack by Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan, a psychiatrist whose business card read "SoA" for "Soldier of Allah." The Obama administration had classified the attack as "workplace violence," but Congress redefined what should be considered an attack by a "foreign terrorist organization" for purposes of determining eligibility for the Purple Heart.

February 9. WFTV Channel 9 television in Orlando, Florida, investigated a school in Seminole County after parents complained that students were learning too much about Islam in a public classroom. One parent became concerned after he spotted a text on his son's phone from a teacher reminding him to complete a prayer rug assignment and study an Islam packet. WFTV found that a textbook included a chapter dedicated to the "Rise of Islam," including prayers and scriptures from the Quran. But the first 100 pages of the book, discussing Judaism and Christianity, were missing. Officials from the school district blamed a manufacturer defect in 68 books that are only a year old.

February 16. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf, speaking on MSNBC's Hardball, said that the solution to defeating ISIS was "a jobs program." She said: "We need ... to go after the root cause that leads people to join these groups, whether it's lack of opportunity for jobs."

At that point, Harf was interrupted by host Chris Matthews, who pointed out, "There's always going to be poor people. There's always going to be poor Muslims."

Harf continued to argue that the US should help Muslim countries "build their economies so they can have job opportunities for these people." She added: "If we can help countries work at the root causes of this — what makes these 17-year-old kids pick up an AK-47 instead of trying to start a business?"

February 17. The White House launched a three-day Summit on Countering Violent Extremism but refused to use the term Islamic extremism. The summit featured Islamists known for preaching anti-Western themes.

The fact that there are 1.6 billion Muslims in the world and the Islamic faith is one about peace and brotherhood."

February 19. US President Barack Obama said that Americans who criticize Islam are guilty of provoking Islamic terrorists: "When people spew hatred towards others — because of their faith or because they're immigrants — it feeds into terrorist narratives. If entire communities feel they can never become a full part of the society in which they reside, it feeds a cycle of fear and resentment and a sense of injustice upon which extremists prey."

Why don't they attack Islam but do attack Christianity.

Why don't they attack Mexican Christians?

Because Hispanic Catholicism is mixed up with Sun worship, Our lady of Guadalupe.

They attack white Christians exclusively.

Because white Christians worship Jesus, and he was the truth.

this article is quite the list of stupid and violent shit muslims have done.

i wonder how long the list would be, if they wrote about stupid and violent shit that christians have done?

Dear Tyler/ZH...Enough already with the islamophobic, xenophobic, fear mongering, muslim-demeaning, hate inciting articles. This is clearly a divisive tactic deployed by TPTB to have us fight among ourselves or for continued religious wars. There's plenty of that already in the mainstream media including Drudge or Alex Jones' Infowars. Some of us are not that stupid - we can see through the negative intentions you are selling. How about writing an article on how to profit from religions instead, huh?

Get your Austrian Fash Game in shape:


It cannot be denied that Fascism and similar movements aimed at the establishment of dictatorships are full of the best intentions and that their intervention has for the moment saved European civilization. The merit that Fascism has thereby won for itself will live on eternally in history. But though its policy has brought salvation for the moment, it is not of the kind which could promise continued success. Fascism was an emergency makeshift.

--Ludwig von Mises, Liberalism


Fash is ugly in normal times, sort of like a doctor's work in the emergency room is nauseating to many. But it's an "emergency makeshift" that has "merit," enough to save European civilization. If Mises was cool with it, so am I.

Now enough bickering and lets import more Rapefugees!

Side note: I have no love for Zionists either, but that's not what's being discussed here until someone accuses me of it in 3, 2, 1...

You REALLY DO NOT get what Islam IS and where they want to take the world. This is not where I want my grandchildren to be. Why do you think that it is a religion, rather than what it trully is. A Governing system that requires that one turns off they brain and their human heart.

The jack-flappity ass hats are out doing their Chicken Little impression again.  This is so sad and pathetic.


Let me show you how easy this is:

Representative André Carson (D-Indiana), a convert to Islam, was appointed to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Carson has extensive ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Really.  And who elected him?  Oh yeah, AMERICANS.  IN AMERICAN ELECTIONS.  Funny, that somehow slipped under the radar.

Officials at the Rocky Heights Middle School in Littleton, Colorado, ignited controversy when they told female students to dress according to Sharia law while visiting a mosque during a field trip.

Yes, because all females are required to dress modestly, per Islamic strictures, when they enter a mosque.  Just like in Christian churches and society, there are dress codes.

Islamic politics "advocates the world's greatest double standard: if you come to our country, we won't let you worship the way you want, we won't let you say what you want to say... However, we have come to your country, therefore we have the right to do whatever we want to do, including kill you if you make us mad." — Former US President Bill Clinton.

Why is this a problem?  The United States has basically declared its right to go to any country and do whatever it wants to do, including kill you if you make it mad (e.g. Iraq, Libya, Syria, etc.)  Talk about a fucking double standard!  The fact that this nigger chose Bill Clinton to quote says it all.

Fouad ElBayly, an Egyptian-born imam who in 2007 said that Somali-born activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali should receive the death penalty for her criticism of Islam, is now a Department of Justice contractor hired to teach classes to Muslims who are in federal prison. – The Daily Caller

Because Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a zionist-funded cunt, that's why.

"I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under Allah...." – Arabic rendering of the Pledge of Allegiance, Pine Bush High School, New York.

Because in Arabic, the word for "god" is "allah", just like the word for "potato" in Arabic is "batata".  You see, in other parts of the world, they speak languages other than English.  And they have different words for their nouns and adjectives and the various other parts of speech.  I know, it's crazy, but true!!

Breitbart News revealed the existence of what is believed to be the first official Sharia law court in the United States, in Irving, Texas. The so-called Islamic Tribunal settles civil disputes among the growing Muslim population.

That's great!  This should be celebrated--the common law prevails.  Now that the precedent has been set we can start empowering American common law courts that use the Bible as the basis of their justice.

Would you people please stop screeching like terrified women?  There was no drought in California, and there is no Muslim invasion of America.

Stop being fucking idiots.

I am Chumbawamba.

Thanks to articles like this, I bet one of these days one ZH reader on psychiatric drugs will go on shooting rampage in a mosque somewhere. Then the media will spotlight ZH as the culprit and all the readers as extremists. Gosh, to think I have emailed some of my associates good articles from this site! Big mistake.

you lack perspective and a sense of adventure.

after sifting and through and cherry-picking (or, i suppose, in light of the subject matter, "date-picking" or "pomegranate-picking" is here more appropriate) a few of the least atrocious atrocities, you've tidily sanitized them with inchoate analogies and one instance, you went so far as to call the citer of the clinton quote a nigger, when his name is soeren -- a danish name -- knowing, as i'm sure you do, that no nigger has or ever will be named soeren.  

my guess is that mr. kern is named after Soeren Kierkegaard; and if there's a quote janus has on the Hedge worn thin, it's this'n from the great dane himself, "boredom is a root of all evil."  i'll return to the quote in one minute...fret not.

back in high-school, janus used to wrestle.  one of the tactics that any successful wrestler must fold into a given strategy is the invitation of inertia.  that is, you push (or pull) with the expectation that your opponent will respond by pulling (or pushing); and in anticipation of his reaction, you ready yourself to manipulate his momentum once he commits to the response.  fret not, i will likewise restore your attention to this little metaphor in a moment.

no doubt about it, islam has been forged into an instrument of destruction and decay.  and, i will freely concede, islam is no monolith of malevolence -- there are schisms, and schisms within those schisms; there are some inclined to war and others peace; its congregants comprise everything from bedouin goat-herders to heads of state.  all that being said, world-wide opinion and perspective is of a single accord: islam is a wild and maniacal beast that must be tamed.  sure, opinion and perspective have been sculpted to this end; the people of the world have certainly been conditioned to understand islam in this way.  however, muslims -- individually and collectively -- have done all they can to aid in affirming the world's opinion.  that is to say, muslims -- individually and collectively -- have done much to augment the stereotype by their wild and maniacal behavior.

whatever opinions you maintain are your own -- if, for example, you think the world should be a hetrogeneous blur of peoples strewn amongst one another...that the optimal state of being is that all happily hold hands, offer to buy their 'brothers' a coke and keep them company...i respect that; i just happen to disagree.

let's say that both muslims and multiculturalists subscribe to failed faiths...perhaps i'm wrong, but just humor me for one moment. the best way to immolate a failed faith is through the process of revelation.  for example, 'we' could -- in the flash of a milisecond -- eviscerate all that is islam by incinerating the kabbah stone with an icbm sliding over oceans on greased lightning.  seriously, if we were to bomb mecca to cinders, the nexus of 1.3 billion worshipers would be in one moment dissolved.  the kabbah being central to both the practice and eschatology of islam, its vaporization would leave them all floating rudderless and utterly dismayed.  (my guess is that you'll see precisely this at some point in your life).  by bombing the holy shrine (may Allah will it), all of islam would in an instant see just how mighty this allah truly is (or isn't).

as for multiculturalism, the moment the partitions are removed and the constraints fettering people's anime are lifted, human beings instantly revert to an 'us/them' mode of thinking.  you saw it recently in cologne...let these hooligans feel free of sanction and penalty, and voila! you've got widespread molsestations and rapes; and by the same token, once the far right feels free of collective approbation of society, they are on the streets with swastikas. 

in my view, all peoples should have their own place.  the practice of islam should be restricted to islamic lands.  the blending of disparate peoples only incites friction and envy and malice.  and inasmuch as people require a sense of identity, there will always be active within each and all the process of 'us/them' -- i am 'this', therefore i am not 'that'.  a harmonious society MUST be homogeneous.

now, Chumbawamba, back to Soeren Kierkegaard: boredom is a root of all evil.

the world -- broadly speaking -- is simmering in a pressure-cooker of discontent.  the lies that animated our activities are everyday exposed as such.  everywhere people want for purpose and mission and a raison d' etre.  suffice it to say, the children of men are suffering ecumenical boredom...the foul fruits of this sentiment will no doubt be of an evil seed.

and so, janus the wrestler asks himself, 'shall i impede the tidal forces of humanity?  is it wise to step in front of a tsunami and tell it to cease its swell?'  probably not.  instead, i think it's best to invite the crush of inevitability and along with it the forces of inertia and momentum; and once it's committed to this course, put it on the mat with the thrust of its own force. 

Chumba, do you really think 'the people' have any appetite whatsoever for the Truth?  

they like to play does janus.  

leave these witches to their kettle brewing inertia and momentum for greater spells still...

for end the end, the people will shout: 'all hail malcolm, king of the scots.'

Let's can not build a church in a predominantely moslem country, but you can build as many mosques as you want in predominantly Christian countries. Why is that? Because islam is and intolerant ideology, that's why.

I'm sure the article about the stupid stuff Christians have done would be large.  Then again, any article detailing the atrocities of any religion, or for any matter, any group would have a lot of entries in it.  Why don't you give us a list of the crimes of communism?  They are Athiests and didn't they cause - at the very least - a lot of problems?

with the exception of the Caspar-like Christopher Lee Cornell, that was quite a lengthy list of 3rd world miscreants

newworldorder's picture

A lot shorter than the Muslim list. Islam is a cult not a Governing or a religious system.


You could probably fit all of that on a sticky note.

There is no such thing as Islamic Extremism, there is only Islam.

If Jesus was a jew,and this country is 'run by jews' , then why the FUCK is Christianity the most persecuted religion in this fuckin country? 

It's ok to be a muslim,and their religion is protected, and we must coexist. ..

But a Christian can't refuse to do business with somebody in the country without some fuckin attack on them?


Guys- decide what God Damn stories you wanna believe, and stick to it for fu#× sake.

A) Christianity makes up 70% of US religious beliefs and has the most influence. Of course it's going to be the most talked about.

B) Taking the Bible or GAWD out of the classroom or government doesn't mean Christianity is being persecuted. As for Christians not being able to refuse business to whomever, that is an entirely different matter. The government has been overstepping its bounds and making laws for "protected classes" when it shouldn't be, especially regarding religions.

Guess what, you can't refuse business to a black or mexican either.

C) Christianity is readily mocked because Christians are soft, weak and obnoxious. Turn the other cheek!

D) The Jews (more specifically Zionists) hate Jesus and still follow the Talmud/Old Testament, which states Jews are God's chosen people and Israel the holy land. Basically they're insane, and they attack Jesus since he preached a different message.

Excerpt from "Islam and the Divine Deception":

There are parasitic plants, such as the Virginia Creeper and the Strangler Fig, that start out as almost imperceptible growths on their host plants or trees. They send their tendrils down into the soil to suck out the nutrients, and even tap into the very roots of the host. From their hosts, they derive protection and strength, as they grow rapidly to wrap their vines around the body of the host, and interleave their foliage with it in mockery of it. Eventually, they can choke the life out of the host. Where a Strangler Fig prevails, the tree inside it dies and rots, leaving the twisted, entangled vines of the living Strangler Fig standing alone as a new “tree.”

Such parasites never assimilate into the host; they stand apart, clinging to it, feeding off of it, taking its protection and nutrients—and smother the life out of it.

Islam never assimilates, either. It stands apart in a non-Islamic civilization, clinging to it, enjoying and profiting from the freedoms, riches, pleasures, and rights of that society until it can overcome and dominate it, no matter how long it takes, and supplant it with Islamic totalitarianism. Islam did just that when it smothered the life out of Hinduism in a large part of India, and emerged as the stand-alone Islamic state of Pakistan after a thousand years of parasitism. Today, Muslims are continuing the same process with Kashmir.

Religions are not political states or nations. Islam is a political state. Unlike any other state, Islam is a transnational parasitic state, an organism that feeds on its host nations until it overwhelms and replaces them, taking their land, their rights, their freedoms, their blood, and their treasure. 

There is only ONE Islam. There is only ONE Quran.
