Love for America and a love of the faith of Islam

We stand firmly for universal human rights – including gender equality, freedom of conscience, and freedom of speech and expression.

“When did World War III Begin? Part B: Threats Abroad”? 

Moderated by: Luke Coffey, The Heritage Foundation


Friday, February 24th, 8:40am – 9:20am

In this new world of ever-increasing globalization, America faces new, as well as old, threats. Radical Islamic terrorism, China’s violation of international laws in the South China Sea, and Russia’s efforts to destabilize American institutions, are all examples of some of the threats that America faces around the world. This will be the second part of a two-part main stage panel on national security. This 40-minute panel will focus on threats abroad and how these threats developed over time, how they affect Americans, and potential solutions in how America can fight back against these new threats.

Weekly, Zuhdi Jasser covers the timely and most controversial issues on homeland security, national security, foreign policy, religious liberty, human rights, and general politics that few have the courage to confront.

Our mission is to advocate for the preservation of the founding principles of the U.S. Constitution, liberty and freedom, through the separation of mosque and state.

Change through the media

In today’s political and social climate, it is essential that Muslims opposed to Islamism have a platform. We advance today’s most  urgent conversations through the media – amplifying anti-Islamist Muslim voices and lending a anti-Islamist Muslim perspective to issues important to all of us.  For too long, the wrong voices have represented our community in the media. We are taking our rightful place in the conversation, and educating the public about our perspective.


“Believers! Conduct yourselves with justice, and bear true witness before God; even if it be against yourselves, your parents, or your kin.”

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا كُونُوا قَوَّامِينَ بِالْقِسْطِ شُهَدَاءَ لِلَّهِ وَلَوْ عَلَىٰ أَنفُسِكُمْ أَوِ الْوَالِدَيْنِ وَالْأَقْرَبِينَ إِن يَكُنْ غَنِيًّا أَوْ فَقِيرًا فَاللَّهُ أَوْلَىٰ بِهِمَا فَلَا تَتَّبِعُوا الْهَوَىٰ أَن تَعْدِلُوا وَإِن تَلْوُوا أَوْ تُعْرِضُوا فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ خَبِيرً
