For many Muslim Americans, 9/11 was a double punch of tragedy and bigotry

The actions of 19 Islamic extremists on 9/11 left an indelible mark on America. Today, millions pause to commemorate the attacks’ 13th anniversary, to honor the victims and to remember that all life is special and sacred. But there’s an untold story amid the many speeches and moments of silence — one filled with a different kind of pain, grief and strong sense of loss. 

Those stories are now being told on social media |

Meet the Kurdish Women Fighting ISIS in Syria

Photo essay

Syria/US (2014)


According to an article in the Wall Street Journal:

“The jihadists don’t like fighting women, because if they’re killed by a female, they think they won’t go to heaven,” said one female [Kurdish] fighter.

Unfortunately, the truth of this is doubtful. But that shouldn’t diminish the fact that 7,000 volunteers have joined the Women’s Protection Unit (YPJ) to resist ISIS.

On the other hand, PKK, the Turkey-based, pro-Kurdish group they’re affiliated with is classified as a terrorist group by the US State Department. The PKK is a group known for terrorising village people - they steal items, and people.  

Girl power is very ethically complicated.
