This week we heard about the experiences of Muslim women visiting the U.S. Capitol, satirized the fight for Aqsa Parvez’s gravestone, rolled our eyes at the assertions that hijab make make us sick, critiqued the Muslim in America Experiment, and linked our hearts out. We also provided daily updates regarding the Aasiya Hassan murder, and tomorrow, we’ll be having a roundtable discussion on the issue.

Several blogs worth watching:
http://www.chasingevil.org – A blog by Christians dedicated to opposing intolerance, hate, fearmongering and bigotry. Check out this article about the latest cardboard cutout “reformed Islamic terrorist” making the rounds of Christian Zionist/Dominionist gatherings. His name is Daniel Shayesteh, and the folks at chasingevil.org document Shayesteh’s biographical evolution in the public record to “one who formerly trained Muslims in the strategies of Islamic Jihad.”
Top story there today is about a a Maine neo-Nazi who was shot to death by his wife last December, and who possessed “a cache of radioactive materials suitable for building a ‘dirty bomb.’”
Gates of Vienna Vs. The World Vs. LGF – This website is tracking the ongoing battle between rightwing extremist bloggers such as Pamela Geller who recently made an appearance beside Aqsa Parvez’s gravesite (satirized here at Muslimah Media Watch), and the rightwing site Little Green Footballs, which has renounced Islamophobia.
Top story there today is an excellent excoriation of Geller’s crocodile tears for Parvez, and a long look at her anti-Islam craziness.
This week on MMW, we looked at a sexist Egyptian beer commercial, ripped Toronto Life magazine for its coverage of Aqsa Parvez, questioned Tarek Fatah on domestic violence and honor killing, and interviewed Sahar Ullah from The Hijabi Monologues. We also published a very special Friday links this week, along with a few announcements.
