American Taliban: Is Smashing Historic Heritage a Meritorious Act?

By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor, for Unz Review In March 2001, in the mountains northwest of Kabul, the Taliban blew up two colossal statues of Gautama Buddha. The act was almost universally condemned. But the Taliban’s justification of historic vandalism makes at least as much sense as those offered by today’s American Taliban, who are on a nationwide rampage of statue-destruction. Here in Madison, Wisconsin, confused protesters just destroyed two statues honoring causes they presumably support. One honored Hans Christian Heg, “a Norwegian immigrant, activist and abolitionist who led an anti-slave catcher militia helping slaves escape before serving as…

The Real Reason Why Islamophobia Sweeping Across the US

By Kevin Barrett, for Press TV Alaa Massri, who’s an activist in New York, was recently arrested and stripped of her hijab by the police, who then distributed the photo. This is one of many indignities that Muslim women in the US sometimes suffer. We’ve had a wave of Islamophobia sweeping across the US ever since the September 11 false flag operation, which was actually orchestrated precisely to generate that kind of Islamophobia, and to weaponize it, both in service to wars around the world against the enemies of Israel and Zionism, and also to try to put a lid…

Malcolm X Was Right, Islam Can Solve US Racism Problem

Iranian newspaper Sobhe Sadiq interviews Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor Question: Protests over police brutality and the death of George Floyd continue to rage across the US. What do you think about the protests? I sympathize with people who are angry about the murder of George Floyd and other abuses by American police. Abusive police are a serious problem here in the USA, epecially in black communities. The police abuse problem is one aspect of the larger problem of rampant injustices and inequalities. There is also the related problem of the moral, ethical, and spiritual vacuum left by the decline…

Walt Gragg on Apocalyptic Mideast War Novel “The Chosen One”

Listen HERE Novelist Walt Gragg just published The Chosen One, a new apocalyptic Mideast war novel. It envisions a US war against a self-styled Mahdi’s military attempt to unite the Arab world under an Islamic theocracy. Gragg’s take on Islamic eschatology is, to say the least, problematic: “For fourteen hundred years the prophecy had remained unfulfilled. Islam had yet to complete its conquest. Each day two billion voices prayed for Allah to give them a sign. Each evening they searched the heavens for the Mahdi’s arrival. At last their prayers had been answered…their guide, the Chosen One, had shown himself. The…

When Will Muslims Demand 9/11 Truth?

The biggest, ugliest, most evil psy-op in history targeted Muslims on 9/11/2001.

If we take into account the lingering worldwide effects of the 9/11 anti-Islam public relations operation, and recognize that the anti-Islam genocides in Myanmar, Kashmir, India, and China (not to…
