The Ayaan Hirsi Ali Foundation asked me to write about honor violence against sexual minorities for their newsletter. What an honor it is to join the cause of a fearless heroine and world-renown fatwa victim who tops Al Qaeda’s most wanted list. You see ladies and gentleman, in the ongoing war between the civilization & liberal democracy (of the Enlightened World) and the terrorism & totalitarian states (of the Benighted World), the fate of humanity rests on a few freedom-fighting Infidels who are leading the charge in the greatest ideological showdown since the beginning of time.
By Nemat Sadat Victims of honor violence can also be men and boys. I know because I’m someone who averted …

I’m disturbed by the gay activists who violently stormed the Creating Change conference in Chicago last weekend and reduced the nuance in the Arab-Israeli conflict by giving Islam a free pass while calling for the death of Israel.

LGBTI+ leftists finding a common bond with Muslims as oppressed victims need to educate themselves since Islam considers gays the worst of worst creatures. If gay activists really had chutzpah and courage, they’d protest the torturers and killers of LGBTI+ persons in the Muslim World by storming Islamic conferences and demanding social inclusion. Reviling Israel at an event meant to promote the transnational gay rights movement is not only self-destructive but anti-Semitism at its finest.

When I debate such LGBTI+ simpletons with facts, they accuse me of Pinkwashing and Islamophobia. The truth is bitter but unavoidable: Israel honors gay rights while Arab/Islamic states honorably kill gays.
Many social movements fall apart because of infighting and petty bickering. The liberal American LGBTQ community is certainly not free from silly quarr ...

In response to last Wednesday's terrorist attack on TOLO TV in Afghanistan, President Ashraf Ghani said on Twitter, "And let's separate those who don't want peace and don't accept our national and Islamic values." This tweet shows how incompetent and weak he is and how his regime is destroying the future of the country.

First, why is it necessary to isolate those who don’t want peace? Terrorists are terrorists. I see no difference between Al Qaeda, Daesh, Haqqani, Hezb Islami, Lashkar Taiba, and the Taliban. All are bad. Instead of mincing your words, talk like a leader and say, “All terrorists must and will be crushed.”

Second, Islamic values is the reason why Afghanistan remains trapped in an inferno. The core value of Islam (“submission” to the will of Allah and surrender to the Quran and the Hadiths and Sunnah) cripples the mind and paralyzes social development. With President Ghani aligning himself with Islamic values he lets the Afghan state and society to continue employing sharia to honorably punish adulterers, apostates, blasphemers, homosexuals, infidels, and use women and girls as slaves. Inadvertently or not, President Ghani has also given terrorists the green light to continue their terrorist attacks since jihad and killing those who spread mischief is a central tenet of Islam.

People aren't stupid. For the suffering masses, there is no difference between the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and the terrorists eager to come to power. All of you have one common denominator. All of you are byproducts of Islam.

Some Muslims and their apologists continue to blame Atheism for the crisis with Islam today. I fail to see how the lion's share of cultural, economic and social development created by hardline atheists to humanity is the source of the world's misery? All of the contributions provided to humankind have been spread by atheists, freethinkers, and other skeptics. Because of a gay atheist named Alan Turing (the father of modern computing), an atheist named Vint Cerf (the father of the Internet), and a Jewish atheist named Mark Zuckerberg (founder of Facebook), you, I, and billions of people communicate here and add value to our world.

In fact, much of the world's greatest achievements and innovations in the arts, economics, entertainment, law, literature, media, medicine, philosophy, psychology, physics, science, technology, etc. were pioneered by militant atheists. And don't say Algebra was created by Islam by saying Mohammed ibn-Musa al-Khwarizmi was a Muslim when he was actually a Persian Zoroastrian. Besides, what has the Islamic World invented in the last 1200 years? And don't confuse communists like Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong who committed their communist atrocities in the dogma of Marxism with secular atheists who believe in freedom and liberty for all people.

People who have contempt for atheists, gays, Jews or other persecuted minorities are speaking from a place of insecurity. Atheists and their allies make the world go round by increasing quality of life, saving lives, expanding life, and making the world beautiful the way it should be. When was the last time you heard about an atheist blowing themselves up and killing innocent civilians in the name of Charles Darwin? On the other hand, death and destruction in the name of Allah-u-Akbar is part of the Islamic tradition and way of life. So instead of blaming atheists, why don't you accept the bitter truth that the fundamentals of Islam is fundamentally flawed?

Dear Afghans and their allies,

We need your help. An Afghan journalist is looking for a lesbian Afghan woman residing in Kabul to interview for a story about LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex) Afghans that will be broadcast on the radio, TV, and web in both Dari and in Pashto. Given the dangers, you do not have to show your face or give your real name if you don’t want to. I’ve linked up a number of gay Afghan men and a transgender for this segment already. As soon as they find their lesbian, the show will go live. Please contact me if you or any lesbian you know can participate in the movement to liberate our Afghan nation from the shackles of oppression, regression, repression and the brutal culture of honor rape and violence subjected upon women and queer people. Rest assured that big changes are coming for Afghanistan's LGBTI community. Of this, I am cocksure.

Which Afghan pop star—Almas Farahi, Aryana Sayeed, Elaha Soroor, Valy Hedjasi, or another—would you like to see release an LGBTI themed music album and emerge as the pioneering celebrity icon of Afghanistan’s gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and queer community?

Congratulations Hillary Clinton! My Presidential candidate of choice, a progressive change agent, and the most experienced leader running in the 2016 US Elections has officially won the first battle by securing the Iowa Caucuses. I’ve said this before and will say it again: Mrs. Clinton will make history as the first woman and first former First Lady to lead the free world.
Hillary Clinton's razor-thin victory in the Iowa Democratic caucuses sets up a prolonged nomination fight with rival Bernie Sanders as the focus shifts to New Hampshire.

I'm not even talking about the results  ;)

Go watch Cenk Uygur on The Young Turks - he provides a really clear explanation why Bernie was the winner, no matter how you spin it. I'll even go dig up the link for you if you're too lazy to find it on your own.

After I publicly lambasted President Ashraf Ghani a few days ago for his ineptitude, it seems like my words penetrated into the Afghan President's mind since he's now had a change of heart. In his newest interview with the BBC, he vowed to bury Daesh militants in Afghanistan. This is a big step in the right direction. I would have been more cavalier by saying, "We will bury Islam in Afghanistan" since the Islamic cult of death is not only the source of indoctrination for the foreign ISIS militants active in the country but also the domestic Taliban and other extremist groups you still have to deal with.

Regardless, you score big points and we should give you credit where it's due. Good luck Mr. President. If you are sincere and put your words into action, then I fully support you and I trust other sane and sober people do the same. Decapitators, mutilators, homicide bombers, and other bloodthirsty monsters have no place in any country. If the Jihadi terrorists refuse to co-exist in civility and peace then they deserve to be obliterated with the full force of war. Go get 'em tiger. Rawr.
Afghan President Ashraf Ghani pledges to "bury" the Islamic State militant group, whose local offshoot has clashed with government forces and the Taliban.

The employees of TOLO TV are still reeling from Wednesday’s terrorist attack on a shuttle bus in Kabul, Afghanistan that was transporting a full crew back to their homes. Before the families of the seven dead could bury their loved ones, the Taliban rushed to claim responsibility and promised that the first attack on TOLO would not be the last and that the country’s most popular media channel, watched by more than 60 percent of Afghans is still considered a military target. The Taliban said they are not enemies of all TV stations, only TOLO and 1TV (both part of the Moby Group) and vowed to launch more attacks until the mass media organizations that have been at the forefront of liberalization and social change in post-Taliban Afghanistan, are crippled and shutdown or fully conformed to Islam.

I’m disgusted by the silence of the spineless who cowardly hide in their rat holes and only come out to sell their obstructionist products and services.

I’m also repulsed by the apologism of imbeciles who have defected from the Islamic World and now comfortably live in exile in the West but continue their submission to their tyrannical oppressors. These apologists have gone so far to suggest that TOLO’s Luciferian and Pagan programming, pan-Iranism slant, pro-Illuminati agenda, being funded by USAID, capitalized by media mogul Rupert Murdoch or the conspiracy that Saad Mohseni and his family are the linchpins of the Rothschilds and other Jewish titans (the omniscient Gods of the multiverse) and the progenitors of Zionism in Afghanistan are all rationales justifying the slaughtering of their production staff.

You can come up with a million excuses and agree or disagree with TOLO’s content or the way they deliver information but let's make one thing be clear: No person deserves to be blown up to smithereens. In the civilized world, we exchange our ideas in a free marketplace and conflicts are resolved by the meeting of the minds, not by the firing bombs and bullets.

If you really cared, had a conscience, demonstrated courage, and truly had the mental capacity, you would show remorse for the TOLO victims and explore the root cause of martyrdom instead of silencing journalism and defending the heinous acts of your barbaric, primitive, and savage co-religionists.

If you love peace, here's the solution: Demand that President Ashraf Ghani, the Afghan Parliament, and all government officials disavow Islam and replace sharia with secular liberal reforms. It's time we figure out the real loyalties of the moderates sitting on the fence. Are they with democratic society or the terrorist Islamic cause?

Today is the darkest day for journalists and the mass media in Afghanistan. Apparently terrorists chased a bus carrying a full crew of TOLO News staff from Kabul's Wazir Akbar Khan district all the way to Darul Aman where they bombed and slaughtered seven production staff and injured dozens more. This direct attack on freedom of the press brings much grief not only to all the affected families and Moby Media Group employees but to every single person who cherishes life and enjoys living in a civilized, democratic, and free society. Last October the Taliban released a statement saying that they considered TOLO a military target for spreading Satanism and spearheading the cultural invasion of Afghanistan by infidels. I have news for the Taliban and all the enemies who cloak themselves under the banner of religion. If TOLO is considered the devil and their vision of a pluralistic and progressive society is abominable, then I’m sure all enlightened people would rather live in apostate hell than your wicked Islamic paradise.

Why are goofballs taking sides in the ‪#‎IranSaudi‬ standoff? As a gay atheist I'd be forced to a sex change or hanged in Iran and lashed and beheaded in Saudi Arabia. Besides my own personal issue, both countries are notoriously cruel in their persecution of women and all minorities and two of the most active state sponsors of terrorism. Instead of trumpeting war, support individual freedom.
