It was the deadliest attack on a house of worship in Canada's history. Six people lost their lives when a gunman opened fire on a mosque in Quebec City in 2017. In the five years since, hate incidents have not stopped. Some of them have been deadly. And it has led to questions about how Canada treats its Muslim population.

This past Saturday the news alerts were going off as an Islamic jihadi from Britain took hostages in Congregation Beth Israel synagogue in Colleyville, TX. His demand was for one known as -Lady Al Qaeda- to be freed. Jihad Watch reported that the town that the Islamic jihadist, Malik Faisal Akram of Blackburn in Lancashire, UK, was from is described as another post-industrial English town where Muslims make up a third of the population and Pakistanis account for over 10- of the population. The standoff with SWAT teams lasted some 10 hours. In the end all hostages escaped without harm.--Usama Dakdok joined Crosstalk to talk about this and other Islamic issues including more mosques being built in America, the true goals of Islam, a bill to create a special envoy of -Islamophobia,- and Muslims being appointed to and running for office.--For more information---TheStraightWay.org

On the show, Chris Hedges discusses the nature of Islamophobia with the author and professor, Nazia Kazi. Islamophobia is not defined solely as anti-Muslim sentiment. It is not limited to hate speech and hate crimes, racial stereotypes, or discrimination against Muslim men and women. Islamophobia, in its most pernicious and deadly form, is embodied in the wars waged by the United States in the Muslim world, as well as the laws and internal security structures that turn Muslims in the United States into “the other.” These laws include the criminalization of migrants, allowing Americans to justify the violent and illegal treatment of the undocumented, and the wholesale surveillance of Muslim communities. It includes the crippling sanctions imposed by the United States on countries such as Iraq and Iran. It includes the numerous military bases and occupation forces in Muslim countries. It includes the drone attacks, missile strikes, and aerial assaults that have left in their wake tens of thousands of nameless Muslim dead. It includes the alliances and massive arms sales to brutal Middle Eastern dictators and monarchs who crush democratic movements, imprison and execute dissidents, impose draconian censorship, and treat women as property. And it includes the cartoon versions of Islam that feed negative stereotypes, a cartoon version that is part of both the right-wing and liberal Islamophobia, which while rhetorically gentler, also permits the targeting of Muslims at home and abroad. Professor Nazia Kazi's new book is ‘Islamophobia, Race, and Global Politics'.

In this episode, I was joined by Proud Pakistani Gay Salman. He was born in Pakistan and grew up as a Muslim. His family was Ismaili and then converted to the Sunni sect of Islam. Salman and I kicked off the conversation by discussing his family and religious background. We then went on to discuss minorities in Pakistan and how the government favors Sunnism over other sects of Islam and other religious minorities. Also, we talked about the safety of minorities as well as the human rights situation in Pakistan.   Salman then shared his experiences of growing up in a devout Sunni family while also being gay. He talked about how the religious teachings and subtle messages from his parents led him to develop internalized homophobia. Salman also discussed how he dealt with internalized homophobia and how that opened a door for him to start critically questioning some of the broader religious beliefs he was holding. He also detailed his struggle to hold onto the Muslim identity even as his beliefs were no longer aligning with traditional/mainstream Islamic teachings. We later talked about how he came to the realization that he was no longer Muslim. The conversation then moved to the topic of coming out as gay and coming as an apostate/ ex-Muslim. Salman shared how his relationship with his family soured when he came out as gay. He also talked about how his relations with various family members are improving with time. We also discussed the need for community and being prepared before coming out. I invite you to take a listen to this insightful discussion!

According to Ilhan Omar, the Democratic Representative for Minnesota's 5th Congressional District, it is!? She's trying to pass a bill to combat ‘Islamophobia', but it is really a Trojan Horse, opening America to Jihad. So far, it has passed in the House over objections that it will disempower counterterrorism efforts. The key to understanding Ilhan Omar's agenda is herspeech at CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations), claiming, “CAIR was founded after 9/11, because they recognized that ‘some people did something' and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.” 'Some people did something'?! Radical Islamists attacked America and killed over 3,000 of us! Her bill, called the Combating International Islamophobia Act, calls upon President Biden to appoint a “special envoy” to fight “Islamophobia.” It would record violence against and harassment of Muslims and vandalism of their mosques, schools and cemeteries worldwide. This would be understandable if there were similar calls to protect Christians, Jews, Hindus and others. The bill also targets so-called propaganda from media, which could be used to condemnreports on jihad activity and analysis of motives behind terrorism. While Ilhan Omar is passing bills that put America in danger, the Palestinian Authority is brainwashing fourth-grade girls to hate Israel. and teaching them it's their Islamic duty to work towards the destruction of Israel. According to Ilhan's bill, simply the reporting of this could be considered Islamophobic.Words like “Islamophobia” and “terrorism” and "domestic terrorism” are being used loosely these days - from school shooters to PTA parents. As an example, we look at an Instacart driver who drove over an elderly couple's groceriesbecause they had a yard sign thanking the police, and question whether the driver could even be called a lone wolf. President Biden, intent upon labeling people who disagree with himpolitically, may even start labeling 'the unvaccinated' as ‘domestic terrorists'.

Berlin is home to Europe's largest Palestinian diaspora community and one of the world's largest Israeli diaspora communities. Germany's guilt about the Nazi Holocaust has led to a public disavowal of anti-Semitism and strong support for the Israeli state. Meanwhile, Palestinians in Berlin report experiencing increasing levels of racism and Islamophobia. In The Moral Triangle: Germans, Israelis, Palestinians (Duke University Press, 2020), Sa'ed Atshan and Katharina Galor draw on ethnographic fieldwork and interviews with Israelis, Palestinians, and Germans in Berlin to explore these asymmetric relationships in the context of official German policies, public discourse, and the private sphere.

Stigall is livid at all the headlines attempting to desperately shield the failings and destruction of one party rule in Washington D.C.  As inflation spirals out of control, media and Democrats members of Congress are screeching about Islamophobia, and Omicron cases, and contempt of Congress, and January 6th.  None of these things are real emergencies.  Two former Trump administration officials join Stigall to tackle the gaslight epidemic.  Fan favorite Peter Navarro pulls no punches in his behind the scenes discussion of Mark Meadows and why he wouldn't submit to a Congressional subpoena himself.  Then the former administrator of the Small Business Administration – Linda McMahon discusses inflation and the labor shortage effects on the backbone of our economy.

As we approach the first anniversary of the insurrection at the US Capitol, more than 700 people have been indicted and more indictments are expected. 129 rioters have entered guilty pleas. Several have been sentenced to prison terms.Did the mob that stormed the Capitol simply coalesce around the fantasy that the election was stolen from Donald Trump? Or can the roots of the violence be traced back to rage about government that began in the 1970s? In Charlotteville, Virginia, on the day before Thanksgiving, a federal jury found twelve defendants and five organizations liable for $26 million dollars in damages stemming from the Unite the Right rally.What effect will this verdict have on the future of the neo-Nazi and White supremacist organizations that sparked the tragic, deadly violence in 2017? Tom's guest today is Dr. Kathleen Belew. She's an assistant professor of history at the University of Chicago, where she is also the faculty affiliate at the Center for the Study of Race, Politics and Culture. She is the author of Bring the War Home: The White Power Movement and Paramilitary America. And along with Ramón Gutiérrez, she is the co-editor of, and contributor to, a new collection of essays called A Field Guide to White Supremacy, in which she and other leading scholars explore how different forms of White supremacy and hatred manifest in events like those that took place on January 6th, and extend to domestic partner violence, homophobia, transphobia, Islamophobia, anti-immigration, and anti-Semitism. The authors chronicle how hate groups have moved from the fringe to the mainstream in America, and they send a clear warning that the violence we've seen in recent years may well be repeated.

Suspect Communities: Anti-Muslim Racism and the Domestic War on Terror (University of Minnesota Press, 2019) is a powerful reassessment of the U.S. government's “countering violent extremism” (CVE) program that has arisen in major cities across the United States since 2011. Drawing on an interpretive qualitative study, Nicole Nguyen, Associate Professor at the University of Illinois-Chicago, examines how the concept behind CVE—aimed at combating homegrown terrorism by engaging Muslim community members, teachers, and religious leaders in monitoring and reporting on young people—has been operationalized through the everyday work of CVE actors, from high-level national security workers to local community members, with significant penalties for the communities themselves. By undertaking this analysis, Nicole Nguyen offers a vital window into the inner workings of the U.S. security state and the devastating impact of the CVE program on local communities. In our conversation we discussed counterterrorism policy, radicalization theories, national security trainings and conferences, the difference between anti-Muslim racism and Islamophobia, public objections to CVE, activist resistance, how and why Muslims participate in policing communities, targeting Muslim youth, and the role of schools and teachers.
