Trump Twitter Storm

NY Times, Trump Shares Inflammatory Anti-Muslim Videos, and Britain’s Leader Condemns Them "President Trump shared videos supposedly portraying Muslims committing acts of violence on Twitter early Wednesday morning, images that are likely to fuel anti-Islam sentiments popular among the president’s political base in the United States and prompted the office of Britain’s prime minister to issue a statement condemning the tweets."

Also see Talal Ansari, Buzzfeed, Here's Where That False Anti-Muslim Video Trump Retweeted Came From " The video, which depicts an attack by a Dutch teen on another Dutch teen, was first picked up by anti-Muslim activists in May. It has circulated through pro-Trump Twitter accounts, Reddit, Alex Jones' website Prison Planet, and the website of an anti-Muslim crusader — before being retweeted by the president of the United States."

"To celebrate the 100 years since legendary British Muslim writer Marmaduke Pickthall conversion to Islam we will be holding a celebration dedicated to him.
