Acting in concert with designated terrorist group CAIR, far left wing Huffington Post says “We’re tracking ‘Islamophobic incidents across the U.S. because the only way to stop hate is to confront it.” Apparently, stopping widespread Muslim hatred for America by Muslims in America is not on their agenda.
Islamophobia is real. And it’s not going anywhere.
After last year’s terror attacks in Paris and mass shooting in San Bernardino, California — and amidst a surge in anti-Muslim rhetoric from U.S. politicians — reports about Muslims in America facing violence, harassment, intimidation and bigotry have become omnipresent. Many Muslims say Islamophobia is worse now than it’s ever been — even worse than it was after 9/11.
It might be impossible to create a comprehensive list of discriminatory acts against American Muslims and those perceived to be Muslim, but The Huffington Post will document this deplorable wave of hate for all of 2016 using news reports and firsthand accounts. The breadth and severity of Islamophobia in America can no longer go unnoticed. Enough is enough.

Here is the Huffington Post’s list of the worst “Islamophobes”
REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE DR. BEN CARSON
Carson implored Iowans during a campaign speech to read up on Islam and learn about how the Prophet Muhammad “put together his armies, and they began to massacre anybody who didn’t believe the same way they did.” Once you learn about Islam, you will come understand it is not a religion.
SOUTH CAROLINA ANTI-SHARIA LAWS
The bill — which would forbid attorneys from citing Sharia or other international defenses in court cases — passed the South Carolina state House of Representative 68 to 42.
SOUTH CAROLINA’S MUSLIM REFUGEE TRACKING
U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.)-sponsored bill limiting refugees’ rights has gotten out of committee and is headed to the state Senate floor for a vote. It proposes requiring police to track the state’s refugees, creating an online registry with refugees’ addresses, and holding any institution or individual who formally sponsors a refugee liable should their sponsee commit an act of terrorism.
RESIDENTS OF IDAHO WANT TO BAN MUSLIMS
Nearly half of all Idahoans agree with Donald Trump that Muslims should be banned from entering the United States temporarily, a new Idaho Politics Weekly poll shows. And 65 percent of Idaho Republicans, who will be voting on Trump in the GOP presidential race in early March, agree with him on the Muslim immigration/visitation issue, finds pollster Dan Jones & Associates.
MICHIGANISTAN CITIZENS AGAINST ISLAM
Anasie attended a West Bloomfield Township board of trustees vote over whether the town should keep its designation as a “welcoming city” for immigrants, Michigan Radio reported. Hundreds of people packed the town hall for the vote, many of whom expressed concern over the “welcoming city” designation and feared it might attract Muslim refugees. Anasie, who wears a hijab, said people at the meeting called her “a terrorist, a rapist, a murderer, and booed, and the worst part is that about 90% of the people cheered.”
TENNESSEE FIGHTS ISLAM INDOCTRINATION IN SCHOOLS
The three legislators said that the bill would “officially stop Islamic religious indoctrination in Tennessee schools.” The legislation, they said, came “after intense public outcry from parents, students, and school administrators that current school textbooks overemphasize Islam while excluding other religions like Christianity and Judaism.” Last year, parents across the state expressed outrage over lessons regarding the Five Pillars of Islam, and after a teacher had students recite and write “Allah is the only god” for a world history project.
NEW JERSEY RESIDENTS PROTEST CONSTRUCTION OF YET ANOTHER MOSQUE
A group opposed to the building of a new Islamic Center in Bayonne promoted its Jan. 12 meeting with an advertisement featuring a Sept. 11th logo and the word “Remember.” New Jersey residents were told to remember 9/11 and other terrorist attacks when they think of Muslims.
