Muslim_Women_are_So_Ninja_by_mindfornication

Real Ninjabery!

So, it’s come to my attention that a cartoon I made years ago has been going around on Tumblr. It makes me laugh, cause well ..yeah. It’s weird, although a popular piece on Deviant art where it originally was uploaded. So yes, I’m just asserting my claim of ownership of the image.

No Space in the American Narrative

Despite all the new rubble and reconstruction, Ground Zero remains heavily occupied with meaning and implications.

Banning Minarets: A Dangerous Precedent and Sign

In case you happen to live in under an abode commonly referred to as a “rock” then you are well aware of a major vote which took place yesterday in Switzerland. Following months of controversial campaigning, a strong 57% of Swiss voted to ban Muslims from constructing minarets on their mosques. The vote comes amidst a campaign which claimed that minarets were representative of the slow domination of European society by militant Islam.
