“There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam.”

“There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam.”

Ayatollah Khomeini famously proclaimed: “Allah did not create man so that he could have fun. The aim of creation was for mankind to be put to the test through hardship and prayer. An Islamic regime must be serious in every field. There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humor in Islam. There is […]

V. S. Naipaul On Islam: A Florilegium

The writer V. S. Naipaul died a year ago today, on August 11, 2018, at the age of 85. A novelist, travel writer, essayist, and historian, he won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2001. His most important works, for me, have been the  two books he devoted to studies of Islam and Muslim peoples. Among the […]

Islamic Republic of Iran arrests 70 cyclists for not wearing hijab

In the West, the establishment media pushes the myth that women who wear hijab are routinely brutalized by MAGA hat-wearing yahoos. Leftist feminists don hijab in supposed solidarity for these allegedly oppressed women. But those feminists have nothing to say about these women in Iran, who are genuinely oppressed and forced to wear the hijab […]

Democrats Fiddle While Iran Burns

A serious annual defense budget will have to wait. Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) forces seized the British oil tanker Stena Impero on July 19, an outrage that follows Iran’s June 13 attacks on two oil tankers and the June 20 downing of an American drone. Yet rather than focusing on an increasingly volatile Iran, congressional Democrats are more interested in […]

NATO ally Germany refuses to back U.S. in Gulf out of fear of Iran

Iran is well established as a world sponsor of jihad terror, with its proxies operating globally. With Trump’s exit from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action and subsequent imposition of tough sanctions, Iran’s economy has plummeted, and its leaders are growing increasingly desperate. According to the Investigative Project: The radical Shi’ite regime has already provided the […]

Islamic Republic of Iran: Man gets two years prison and 80 lashes for “insulting Islamic sanctities”

We are much more enlightened in the West: “insulting Islamic sanctities” won’t get you imprisoned (yet); it will just get you vilified, defamed, deplatformed, and branded a “hate group leader.” “Iran: Prisoner of conscience flogged 100 times for ‘drinking alcohol and insulting Islam,’” Amnesty International, August 1, 2019 (thanks to The Religion of Peace): The flogging of […]

Islamic Republic of Iran sentences convert from Islam to prison for “acting against national security”

An interesting sidelight to this case is the fact that Islamic apologists in the West routinely try to downplay and dismiss Islam’s death penalty for apostasy by saying that in Muhammad’s time, when the Islamic community was one unit, and was a state as well as a religion, apostasy was tantamount to treason, but nowadays, […]

Iran gives three women 55 years in prison for defying Islamic dress code, refusing to wear hijab

Real feminism, or, if you prefer, real respect for the human dignity and rights of women, will never accept the hijab, which is a manifestation of a belief system that regards women as inferior to men and entirely responsible for male self-control, such that women are subject to being brutalized and even killed if they […]

Iranian women face 10 years’ jail for online videos of hijab removal, officials say

Iranian officials have warned that posting video footage of women removing their mandatory headscarves in public could result in up to 10 years’ imprisonment.” Anyone who stands with the 21st century suffragette movement is deemed a racist by the Democrat party of jihad, Jew-hatred and misogyny. Iranian women face 10 years’ jail for online videos […]

UN, including Iran, Saudi Arabia and Yemen, singles out Israel as world’s only violator of women’s rights

Ludicrous. Why is this desperately corrupt slave of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation occupying American soil? Why are American taxpayers still funding it? “UN Singles Out Israel as World’s Only Violator of Women’s Rights; Iran, Saudi Arabia & Yemen Among the Voters,” UN Watch, July 24, 2019: GENEVA, July 24, 2019 — Iran, Saudi Arabia, Yemen […]
