With the shooting of a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, the hatred is already starting to flow.
Many, many “tweeters” have decided to let their hatred toward white people and the police flow, and most aren’t ashamed of it Twitchy has assembled a few “lowlights:”
Imagine the reaction if social media had the same reaction at the death of Michael Brown.
How will the media cover this incident? Time will tell.
Patrick Howley is an investigative reporter for The Daily Caller.
The former imam of the Oklahoma City mosque attended by beheading suspect Alton Nolen apologized this week to ISIS for previously criticizing the group.
Suhaib Webb is currently the imam of the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center, which is part of the same entity under the same ownership as the Islamic Society of Boston, where Boston Marathon bombers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev worshipped. Webb spoke alongside the late al-Qaida senior operative Anwar al-Awlaki at a Sept. 9, 2001 fundraiser for an Islamic radical who killed two police officers, according to FBI surveillance documents.
Webb previously served as imam of the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, where Nolen reportedly worshipped. It is not known whether Webb and Nolen ever met. Webb recently returned to the Oklahoma City mosque to deliver two sermons in October 2013, records reveal. Webb previously gave sermons there in November 2011, October 2010 and October 2008.
The day after Nolen beheaded a co-worker, and the same day that Webb was publicly linked to Nolen’s mosque, Webb apologized to ISIS in an online column he wrote for the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center entitled “Shame on Me: A Commitment to Discourse Instead of Demonization.”
“I woke up the other day and decided to skim through my body of work over the last few years,” Webb wrote. “Boy was I surprised at some of my posts and talks — the tone and the demonization of others — I compared ISIS to Ebola. While I don’t agree with ISIS, al-Qāida, certain progressives and others, I’ve decided to apologize to anyone that I have spoken ill towards or demonized.”
“I ask Allah to forgive me and to guide me to observe better character in the future,” Webb continued. “I asked myself, ‘Suhaib did you forget the 49th chapter of the Qur’an, Surah al-Hujurāt?’ Moving forward, I promise myself to address ideas instead of people, to be critical of thoughts instead of personalities and commit to ethics as best I can. That will create a better climate to unpack and examine current trends in our community, but ensure that I recognize other’s humanity and worth.”
Webb then asked Allah for forgiveness in his column.
As The Daily Caller previously reported, Democratic Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and then-Boston Mayor Tom Menino appeared at inaugural events for the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center in 2009. The city of Boston gave a “subsidy” to construct that cultural center. The Muslim American Society of Boston, an affiliate of a Muslim Brotherhood front group, runs the cultural center.
U.S. funding of militant groups fuels terrorism, Syria’s foreign minister states

The Obama administration and its coalition partners are fueling terrorism by arming and funding al-Qaeda affiliated militants and the practice needs to stop, Syria’s foreign minister said Monday.
In a speech to the United Nations General Assembly, Walid al-Moallem denounced the Obama administration’s policy of arming certain militants while striking others, calling it a double-standard policy which “creates a fertile ground for the growth” of terrorist organizations.
“…What we see on the part of the U.S. administration is a double standard policy and alliances to score certain political agendas, particularly through supporting with money, weapons and training of groups they call moderate,” he said. “This is a real recipe for the increase of violence and terrorism, shedding of Syrian blood, prolonging of the Syrian crisis and demolishing of the political solution at its basis.”
“This behavior creates a fertile ground for the growth of these terrorist groups that commit the most heinous crimes on the Syrian territory, which requires all of us to seriously and effectively address and eradicate terrorism, and re-establish security and stability in Syria and the region.”
The foreign minister added that “striking terrorism militarily while some states are continuing their support of terrorist groups will create a whirlpool of which the international community will not exit in decades,” and he called on countries to stop arming, training, funding and smuggling terrorist groups, stating that ISIS is an “ideology metamorphosed into an organization supported, armed and trained in order to be unleashed like a monster against Syria, Iraq and Lebanon.”
“Let us simultaneously exert pressure on the countries that joined the coalition led by the United States to stop their support of armed terrorist groups,” he said. “Only then, combating terrorism militarily becomes viable.”
The Syrian government has long been at war with ISIS, the al-Qaeda group which has taken control of large areas of eastern Syria and western Iraq while beheading Christians and others refusing to submit to Sharia Law.
Last week, the U.S. ambassador to the U.N., Samantha Power, admitted the real purpose of the fight against ISIS is to overthrow Syrian president Bashar al-Assad.
Power said “moderate” rebels in Syria, such as the Free Syria Army (FSA), will receive an “infusion of support” from the U.S. and its coalition partners, but the Russian Federation ambassador to the U.N., Alexey Borodavkin, later pointed out that moderate rebel groups in Syria which are independent of ISIS “no longer exist” and the main belligerents in the ongoing Syrian Civil War are the Syrian government and al-Qaeda affiliates.
“…The Syrian government is working against a huge army of trained armed terrorists,” he told the U.N. Human Rights Council while discussing a recent report by an independent commission into the conflict.
“Armed groups qualified as ‘moderate’ are closely coordinating their activities with terrorist groups,” he added.
And a FSA commander admitted this a few weeks ago.
“We are collaborating with the Islamic State and the Nusra Front by attacking the Syrian Army’s gatherings in… Qalamoun,” Bassel Idriss, the commander of an FSA-aligned rebel brigade, told the Lebanese Daily Star.
Additionally, the leader of the al-Qaeda affiliate al-Nusra Front, Abu-Mohammad al-Jolani, held a meeting with two CIA officers and the Saudi Deputy Minister of Defense last year, where it was decided that al-Nusra and the FSA would work together to depose the Syrian government.
This meeting likely stemmed from a discussion during the 2012 Bilderberg conference held in Chantilly, Virginia, in which participants envisioned a Syrian puppet government taking orders from the U.S. State Department, the European Union and NATO.
