Happy Eid al-Fitr!

Eid al-Fitr

The Islamic holy month of Ramadan draws to a close.  Muslims have spent the month fasting, praying, and giving alms to the needy.  The month culminates in Eid al-Fitr, three days of celebration–or, as I like to call it, the Muslim version of Christmas.

For those who celebrate Eid, please do enjoy yourselves.  You deserve it.

But, remember: the Islamophobes don’t take Ramadan or Eid off.  They continue doing what they do so well: demonizing the Muslim community and Islamic faith.  That’s why you need to support our work here at LoonWatch.  Please make sure to contribute to LoonWatch’s IndieGoGo campaign.  We’ve raised over $4,000, which is a great start.  There are only 28 days left of our campaign, so please do contribute now–and tell all your family and friends to do the same.

Our initial goal of $50,000 may not be achievable.  So, we’re setting a lower interim goal of $10,000.  This is a bit disappointing, considering that the king and queen of Islamophobia, Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller, were able to raise almost $50,000 during their IndieGoGo campaign of hate.

We wonder why the Islamophobes are so successful in what they do, but it’s no mystery.  It’s all about the money.  Their patrons are willing to fund them.  The question is: will the Muslim community–and the peace-loving peoples of the world–support the group that is fighting back?

As I’ve said, $4,000 is a great place to start, and we are very grateful to all those who have contributed.  So, it’s not a time to be a gloomy Gus.  But, let’s not stop now though.  Let’s reach our new interim goal of $10,000.  If you haven’t contributed, contribute NOW.  And, as always, SPREAD the word.  Facebook us, tweet us, blog about us, email your friends about us.  Spread our video far and wide.

Thank you for your support.

    Carrying on with that analogy, back in 2008 the Catholic Church in the Netherlands once promoted Lent as a “Christian Ramadan”.

    Happy Eid al Fitr

    Yes, but it hasn’t always been the case. We’re fighting something that at its heart is very similar to racism and homophobia. Jim crow was largely based on a fear of black people, but eventually the civil rights movement was a able to overcome that. Gay people have also been demonized in our society, but now, more and more people support marriage equality. Fear of the other and fear of the different, can be over come.

    People buy more into fear than the truth…Sad, but true

    Hello, just a correction: Id ul Fitr is not a three day celebration, but a one day celebration.

    Hehe 😛

    Aww you are welcome, and I wish a good Eid for all of you who celebrate it. Keep pushing the caompaign, someone may just need a reminder.

    Eid Mubarak! The haters get more money because they’re not anonymous and people funding them are probably rich oil and war businessmen who I’m sure are making loads of money on invaded Muslim countries and need an excuse to justify the wars. I’m not suggesting you shouldn’t be anonymous since you have to protect yourself from the loons, but just explaining a possible reason why LW is not getting as much funds as the bigots are. I will donate more inshaAllah since it’s a worthy cause and I trust you guys.

    I hope you guys are able to get more money. Its really upsetting that the Jihad Watch Folks were able to get so much more money to spread they’re hatred and paranoia.

    What??? A Muslim with a sense of humor?

    And here in the U.S., there are those who freak out over any use of “Happy Holidays” in December because no one would ever use a phrase like “Happy Holiday” or “Blessed Holiday” if they weren’t engaged in a War on Christmas(TM).

    Its happening to me right now. I had to use the browser on my phone to see if there was anything new.

    It’s an issue with the cookies and web cache, as mentioned by Solid Snake.

    I’ll ask our admin to look into it. Thanks.

  • Solid Snake

    It has occurred to me also, in fact many times. I believe it has something to do with cookies and web cache. I don’t know which. I just go incognito and browse in that mode. It works in that mode.

    BTW Eid Mubarak wa kul a3m wantum bikhair.

    The last article in the body showing on Chrome is
    Iran: A Setback for Warmongers

    Eid Mubarak to everyone if you are able to see this.
    Something weird is happening. For some reason, on Chrome, the latest articles are not showing up on the Loonwatch Homepage. I had to use Explorer to see the new stuff.
    On Chrome, the Webiste is only showing up to the day the Obama – Hamas pictured article was released. Everything after that is not being shown.
    I don’t know why that is, but that does not happen with any other website. It happened last month too for some reason.
