Regarding Islam’s fundamental teachings and history there are many misconceptions floating around the mainstream Western media. Unfortunately, significant numbers of patrons of these news organizations have very little background on Islam and simply trust that what they are being fed is the truth. Muslim apologist groups are also actively touting these canards as a way to advance the influence of Islam in the West.
I have selected what I consider the top ten fake news headlines about Islam, and will write blogs over the next three weeks to identify them and expose why they are not accurate assessments of classical Islam and/or its expression in history. Please stay tuned, and share these widely if you find them helpful!
