Introduction (and observations):

Note: observations were drawn based upon reading and reflecting upon freely available online information (articles and reports). 

This dedicated page contains material highlighting far-right extremism and terrorism, whose sympathizers include a broad range of people. Moreover, such information should help one understand the mindset of such radicalized people in order to counter and rebut their evil ideology, and how best to react to or converse with such misguided people, should the situation arise.

Both the Kharijite (extremist renegades) and far-right ideologies feed off each other, and their ardent followers (especially leaders) manufacture or exploit certain events or incidents that occur in order to manipulate the emotions of people, gather and unite them together and to rally around their cause (often political in nature). The leaders and figureheads of these ideologies, and those active in calling to them, or aiding, funding and assisting them, are able to do so due to general widespread ignorance of sound and correct religious knowledge (as mentioned in authentic narrations from Prophet Muhammad – peace and blessings be upon him – whose prophesies indeed came true), which these people exploit and take advantage of. The rabble don’t know any better with their emotions and sentiments being manipulated by those with greater influence, position or power.

As orthodox Muslims we condemn both groups and warn others not to be deceived. We also call on Muslims to prioritize learning about the correct Islamic aqeedah and gaining knowledge of the methodology of the Salafus-Saalih (Pious Predecessors), rather than spending excessive amounts of time towards that which is of lesser importance and/or of little to no benefit at all. This page was created for reference purposes only and various information and knowledge regarding Tawheed, Sunnah and Eemaan and their opposites; Shirk, Bid’ah and Kufr (in order to stay away from them) can be found elsewhere on this website which one should refer to (or those listed in our Islamic Websites page).

Indeed, the threat of the far-right racist extremist ideology is very real and apparently increasing. With technological advancements and increased social media channels, the path to getting radicalized online has become all the more easier, whether that be by way of contributing factors such as:

1) watching Youtube videos that are full of conspiracy theories and produced by the far-right or their sympathizers. Such videos are designed and crafted to instill and promote a sense of impending doom, some threat to the “white race” which requires a “call to action” and a need for urgency to “do something about it” . The far-right are also increasingly producing documentaries and “journalistic videos” to spread their propaganda.

2) chatting in private Facebook groups with extremists or on other social media channels.

3) viewing crass memes or cartoon images on certain sites/apps which mock religion (in particular Islam) and contain hate propaganda.

4) viewing certain news sites/channels or reading news articles which support and promote the far-right white supremacist ideology, or even using apps dedicated to the far-right cause.

5) being misled and beguiled by certain well-funded “think tanks”, groups and movements advancing the far-right cause.

6) lending an ear to and being deceived by those individuals (personalities, influencers, politicians, activists, ideologues and demagogues) who claim to be “sticking up for the whites”, “patriotic” or “fighting for the truth” but seem to be making a lot of money from peddling hate. The very ones who hide under the excuse of “freedom of speech”, behave irresponsibly and at times utter inflammatory speech and rhetoric or words that can and does stir up hatred such as “invaders”, “cockroaches”, “enemy-combatants”,  “barbarians”, “backwards”, “uncivilized”, “fifth-column”, “traitors”, “snowflakes”, “libtards”, etc.

7) reading books and manifestos containing far-right and white supremacist ideology, especially those books advocating “lone-wolf terrorism”.  Also, being enamoured by historical events wherein mass murder, massacres and extreme violence was perpetrated by Christians, white supremacists, or unjust Islam haters, from the various sects, movements, orientations and orders prevalent at the time. The radicalized terrorist (Brenton Tarrant) who killed innocent Muslims whilst they prayed to God in a place of worship (mosque) was obsessed with history such as the Crusades, (the “holy war” waged by Pope Urban II in 1095 and lasting just over 200 years), as evidenced by his travel history and the inscriptions on the murderous weapons (guns) he used, which referenced historical figures and battles, along with some dates.

8) news headlines and articles that contain words or language derisive or antagonistic toward minorities (especially Muslims living in Western lands), which follow a narrative in spreading and perpetuating stereotypes and myths about them.

9) tuning in to and listening to certain radio stations and channels that push the far-right/white supremacist agenda, where right-wing leaning bigots, “shock jocks”, firebrands and ideologues spread their ill opinions, racist views or anti-Islam propaganda, using the old and now tiresome “freedom of speech or expression” excuse as cover. There is also the newly-arisen far-right tactic of “groyping” to ambush unsuspecting spaces (like mainstream and popular channels) on the radio airwaves (and internet), and overtake them with various far-right racist conspiracy theories and jokes.”

The spread of the far-right ideology has (historically) resulted in deadly consequences (attacks by radicalized far-right extremists and terrorists) in various lands throughout the world with so many communities affected. See this post for more details:


See the images below (especially the Word Cloud, first image) which highlight what’s been mentioned above as well as providing further information regarding the ways and means, tactics, mediums and channels used by those who subscribe to or sympathize with the radical far-right white supremacist racist extremist ideology.

IMPORTANT POINT: As can be clearly seen above, terror attacks and bombings by non-Muslims (Atheists, Christians, Jews, Zionists) were taking place well BEFORE 9/11. So to say far-right/white supremacist terror attacks or atrocities are something relatively new which only really occurred after 9/11 as a reaction to “Islamic terrorism” is dishonesty and deception.

Note: There are terrorist individuals who weren’t Muslim, but were either Atheists, Christians, Jews, Zionists, Hindus, etc, like:

  • Anders Breivik
  • Brenton Tarrant
  • Thomas Mair
  • Timothy McVeigh
  • Yigal Amir
  • Baruch Goldstein
  • Thenmozhi Rajaratnam
  • Dylann Roof
  • Alexandre Bisonette
  • David Copeland
  • Darren Osborne
  • Patrick Wood Crusius
  • John T. Earnest
  • Robert Bowers
  • Payton Gendron

to name some.

Serious question: why is it when someone with a “Muslim sounding-name” or someone who hijacks the religion of Islam i.e. a kharijite, carries out a terrorist attack, the mainstream media and powers that be, make sure to highlight the religion they assumedly followed (for whatever narrative or agenda they’re pursuing), but when a non-Muslim terrorist does the same, the vast majority of us don’t know their religion or beliefs? The double standards are glaringly obvious. The mainstream media conveniently hide that information from us, one of the tricks of the trade and ruses they use from their arsenal of weapons of mass deception. For example what religion, beliefs or ideology did Brenton Tarrant follow? Atheism, Christianity or Christian Zionism?

The following list of articles are provided with a brief excerpt or summary beforehand. Those who wish to read further can click on the relevant link to find out more. We appreciate the efforts of those research and investigative groups with their websites and informative articles that are warning against the extremist far-right ideology, the causes that can lead to radicalization and the various tactics used by the far-right to further their cause. We hope those who wield greater power and influence in the media and communications world (news channels, columnists, editors, journalists, correspondents, etc) follow in their footseps by behaving more responsibly.

1. Memes of Hate: Countering Cyber Islamophobia

An excerpt from the article:

Internet Cosmos

The internet cosmos is full of hate or extreme speech. The World Wide Web is actually a paradise for racists who can be brave behind the protection offered by the screens of their computers where they feel secure and minimize the risk of exposure. They can say what they really think without fear of losing face within the social groups they belong to, often using a fake identity to release their real self.

Social media applications such as Facebook or Twitter have become the agora for attacking, mocking, insulting, denigrating and humiliating members of the LGTBQ community, women, black people, native Americans and Jews, among many others. Muslims have been one of the most targeted groups, giving way to the so-called cyber Islamophobia, or irrational hostility toward Muslims and Islam expressed online.

Even though many of those attacks come in written form, there is a wide range of anti-Muslim memes. In a 2018 study I carried out on 150 anti-Muslim memes retrieved mainly from Twitter and Google images, the most numerous memes perpetuated the different stereotypes usually attributed to Muslims. These include the oppression of women in Islam, the inherent violent nature of Muslim men, the aggressiveness of the religion itself, their taste for pedophilic or zoophilic practices, a potential to become terrorists, the lack of intelligence of the followers of Islam (mocking aspects such as the 72 virgins) and the threat posed by the concept of multiculturalism perceived as a Trojan Horse in the Western world.

The type of memes in which a text is superimposed on an image is called macros. Usually, it is the written text that carries the anti-Muslim message. One example depicts the recurrent stereotype that Muslims are generally pedophiles who marry very young girls. In this kind of meme, the image is centered and framed by two sentences; the one on top gives a general statement, while the one at the bottom provides the “humoristic” twist: “My wife called me a paedophile. That’s a big word for a 9 year old [sic].”

2. Interesting Viewpoints and Analysis of the #stopIslam Twitter hashtag

A short excerpt from the article:

Twitter hashtags are used to categorise Tweets: they allow people to search for topics more easily. But they also communicate agendas and mobilise people into like-minded communities, so have become a popular form of politically mediated communication. In this article we show how groups with different politics negotiate the tensions between them through the interactions afforded by Twitter, and we examine the possibilities of challenging hate speech online.

The hashtag #stopIslam appears to be both racially motivated and critical of Islam. It has been used previously, particularly following terror attacks, to vilify Islam and Muslims. However, after the Brussels terror attack, on 22 March 2016, it came to our attention because of the large number of tweets using it to defend Islam. This response was also noticed by the mainstream media (CNN, Daily Express, Daily Mirror, Washington Post) who reported on the hashtag trending. These media organisations tended to focus on the ‘counter-narratives’ about Islam reflected in the ‘twittersphere’, which often attempted to negate the relationship between Islam and terrorism. The prominence of these critical responses to #stopIslam, both on Twitter itself and within the mainstream media, raised questions for us about when and why counter-discourses about Islam and Muslims can gain a presence in the public sphere. We developed a project ‘Who speaks for Muslims?’, funded by a British Academy Small Research Grant, to explore how these Islamophobic messages played out online. Originally formulated to ask questions about self-representation and voice on social media, the issues it raises speak to growing concerns about the rise of right-wing populism, a surge in reports of hate speech, and the use of social media by white supremacist groups.

3. A Guide to the Language of the ‘alt-right’

“Here are some terms they use, and other hallmarks to look out for:

Human biodiversity: Despite the fact that many say racism is at the heart of its platform, the alt-right is very sensitive about being called racist. They use the term “human biodiversity” as a more scientific-sounding way of referring to issues of race.

Libtard: The alt-right revels in the rejection of “political correctness,” so embracing an outdated term for a person with an intellectual disability (“retard”) serves the purpose of insulting liberals.

Memes: The modern alt-right originated in places like 4chan and 8chan, which are hubs for meme creation. Meme creation is still a centerpiece of the movement. The alt-right is responsible for getting the Pepe the Frog meme classified as a hate symbol.

Political correctness: Anything that challenges an alt-right person’s right to say whatever they want, whenever they want, in any way they want to say it. According to the alt-right, political correctness is responsible for most of society’s ills, including feminism, Islamic terrorism and overly liberal college campuses.

Snowflake: Short for “special snowflake,” a pejorative for an entitled person. Most people protesting Trump are “snowflakes,” according to the alt-right, as are anti-Trump celebrities and most liberals.”

4. Accusations in a Mirror: How the Radical Right Blames Rising Political Violence on the Left

Candace Owens, then communications director for the right-wing student group Turning Point USA, wrote off white nationalism as a fearmongering “election strategy” on the part of Democrats. “If they were really concerned about white nationalism, they’d hold hearings on antifa,” she told the committee.

If you listened only to Owens’s testimony, you might never learn that the vast majority of extremist murders committed in 2018 were carried out by members of the far right who were steeped in white supremacist ideology. Or that the number of those murders is increasing. Or that many of the tech companies that control the online spaces where violent white supremacists become radicalized are failing to moderate hate content effectively, creating a fertile space for frustrated white men to become socialized into the world of hate.

Owens’s strategy has become standard fare on the right: diminishing the rise of white nationalist violence, diffusing blame onto “many sides” – as President Trump did after “Unite the Right” – or insisting, despite all evidence, that political violence is a left-wing problem. Trump downplayed the threat once again in the aftermath of the Christchurch, New Zealand, shooting that left 50 Muslim worshippers dead at the hands of a white supremacist. When a reporter asked the president whether he believed white nationalism was a rising global threat, he responded, “I don’t really.”

5. Move Slow and Break Everything

Discord is a chat platform designed for video game communities and a persistent and indispensable tool for white supremacist organizing. In early October, a journalist from Slate presented the company with a list of servers designed for denigrating minorities, indoctrinating individuals into white supremacy and doxing perceived enemies. Discord declined to take meaningful action or comment on its decision. Its terms of service state, “[Discord] has no obligation to monitor these communication channels but it may do so in connection with providing the Service.”

…Gab, which was founded as an alternative to Twitter and has become an accepting home base for much of the alt-right, responded to the study in a now-deleted tweet saying, “hate is a normal part of the human experience. It is a strong dislike of another. Humans are tribal. This is natural. Get over it.”

6. How Many Attacks Will It Take Until the White-Supremacist Threat Is Taken Seriously?

“There was, it seems, no time to avert the massacre.

The anti-immigrant, white-nationalist manifesto heralding an imminent attack was uploaded to the online message board 8chan only minutes before a shooter killed at least 20 people out shopping on a late-summer Saturday in El Paso, Texas.

But in another sense, if U.S. authorities confirm that the document was written by the 21-year-old white male suspected of committing the atrocity, then there was plenty of time—numerous years in which violence by far-right, white-supremacist extremists has emerged as arguably the premier domestic-terrorist threat in the United States. The government may be working to prevent these violent acts, but it’s devoted less attention and fewer resources to the toxic ideology that knits them together.

The Anti-Defamation League recently reported that right-wing extremists were linked to more murders in the United States (at least 50) in 2018 than in any other year since 1995, when Timothy McVeigh bombed an Oklahoma City federal building. The organization also found that in the past decade, roughly 73 percent of extremist-related fatalities have been associated with domestic right-wing extremists, relative to about 23 percent attributed to Islamist extremists.”


7. White power ideology’: why El Paso is part of a growing global threat

Defining white nationalism
“At the center of contemporary white nationalist ideology is the belief that whiteness is under attack, and that a wide range of enemies – from feminists to leftwing politicians to Muslims, Jews, immigrants, refugees and black people – are all conspiring to undermine and destroy the white race, through means as varied as interracial marriage, immigration, “cultural Marxism” and criticism of straight white men.

To people who believe in white supremacist conspiracies, demographic change is an “existential threat to white people”, said Cynthia Miller-Idriss, a professor of education and sociology at the American University, and a senior fellow at the Centre for Analysis of the Radical Right.

These conspiracy theories refer to demographic shifts in dramatic, violent terms, as a kind of “genocide” or a “great replacement” of one people with another. The idea of “replacement” is central to this movement: “You will not replace us! Jews will not replace us!” white nationalists and neo-Nazis chanted as they marched with flaming torches through Charlottesville, Virginia. It has echoed in the manifestos of mass murderers, and the chants of Charlottesville marchers, since being coined by a French white nationalist writer and conspiracy theorist in 2011.”


8. Five of the top far-right figures are British. We’re world leaders in hate

“Five of the world’s top ten far-right activists on the internet are British, a new report into online extremism has found.

Milo Yiannopoulos, Paul Joseph Watson, Stephen Yaxley-Lennon aka Tommy Robinson, Katie Hopkins, and Carl Benjamin aka Sargon of Akkad – are all British-born and amongst the ten most influential far-right activists online.

…The other, less obvious factor, says Ganesh, is that the nature of the global dialogue between these figures drives their popularity. “Exclude Milo from this, but Paul Joseph Watson and Tommy Robinson and Katie Hopkins, they’re particularly useful for the far-right. They translate this idea about cultural decline and attacks on the West and the UK from foreigners, primarily Muslims, into something for American audiences as well. They are trying to bridge some of that distance.” These narratives – that there are, for instance, Muslim controlled “no-go” zones in Birmingham – confirm the worldview of a sympathetic foreign audience, and drive funding and influence. (American think tanks, such as the Middle East Forum, have given money to Tommy Robinson).”


9. Leader of Nigel Farage’s party resigns over anti-Islam messages

The leader of the new pro-Brexit party backed by Nigel Farage abruptly resigned on Wednesday after the Guardian asked her about a series of deleted anti-Islam Twitter messages sent before she took on the role.

Catherine Blaiklock, the leader of the Brexit party, repeatedly retweeted posts from far-right figures as well as sending her own messages. Among the messages she shared was one by Mark Collett, a former British National party (BNP) activist, referring to “white genocide”.

The term is often used in extreme rightwing and racist online activism of the sort seen as having inspired the man suspected of shooting dead 50 people last week at mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand.

10. ‘The Great Replacement’: The Violent Consequences of Mainstreamed Extremism

On 15 March 2019 a terrorist attack occurred in Christchurch, New Zealand. The attack was livestreamed over Facebook, and has subsequently been shared with millions of people worldwide.5 In total, 51 civilians were killed and 50 more injured in the shootings. It is alleged that the perpetrator outlined his motivations in a so-called manifesto, which was leaked to the extreme-right-wing board ‘Politically Incorrect’ on the fringe imageboard 8chan and Twitter. This document specifically mentions what the author calls ‘the Great Replacement’ as the motivation behind the attack.

The core ideas behind this conspiracy theory have been present in far-right circles for years,6 however research by the Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD) into extreme-right milieus reveals the extent to which this theory has come to dominate not only violent extreme-right groups on ‘dark social’ platforms, but also the language and ideologies of far-right, xenophobic and nativist groups and political parties across Europe and beyond. In particular, the centrality of the so-called Great Replacement theory to the Christchurch attack requires policymakers to reassess the threat posed by groups who continue to espouse and spread this theory online.

This paper outlines the origins and main arguments of the Great Replacement conspiracy theory, its proponents, the tactics used to disseminate this concept, and the extent to which it is being politically mainstreamed, to illustrate how this concept has come to dominate the transnational extreme-right.

11. Far-right fundraising not taken seriously by UK, report finds

An “unwillingness” by the UK government to engage with the threat posed by far-right extremists is creating a vacuum in which such groups can flourish, according to a study by a Whitehall thinktank of their fundraising activities.

The report warns that the focus placed on Islamists has meant that counter-terrorist authorities tasked with looking into financing have made little attempt to understand how far-right individuals and groups raise funds.

Calling for cross-border collaboration with the private sector, the report by the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) emphasised the importance of financial leads in investigations such as the one into the killing of the Labour MP, Jo Cox, by the extreme rightwing terrorist Thomas Mair.

12. Europe’s right-wing extremists try recruiting from police, army

The extremist groups are showing interest in weapons and explosives, according to Europol.

“In order to build up their physical abilities and combat skills,” the report says, “members of extremist far-right groups are attempting to win over members from the military and security services in order to learn their expertise in the area of surveillance and combat readiness.”

They are also trying to take advantage of martial arts events.

13. Incubating Hate: Islamophobia and Gab

Islamophobia has become a digital rallying cry for white supremacists and other extremists online. Xenophobic, derisive, and disinformative content appears with regularity in conversations about Islam on the fringe social media site Gab – a platform that bills itself as “the free speech social network” but that researchers argue features high levels of hate and conspiracy in comparison to Twitter, which it is modeled upon (Zannettou et al., 2018). We provide an overview of Islamophobia online, detailing prior research that describes the integral role that sites like Gab, 8Chan and Voat play in spreading harmful and defamatory content to larger publics on Facebook, Reddit, YouTube, and Twitter. Then, in collaboration with the social media analytics firm Graphika, we describe results from a quantitative analysis of Gab. Pulling from the complete database of all Gab messages assembled by Pushshift.io, we focus in on four months of data from the Summer and Fall of 2018. We then search the set for Islam-relevant hashtags, derogatory terms, and the names of Muslim U.S. political candidates who ran in 2018 – in the end compiling a set of 188,763 posts. We find that a significant proportion of the material about Islam and Muslims is derogatory.

Incubating Hate: Islamophobia and Gab

14. Interesting Report – Royal Commission of Inquiry into the Terrorist Attack on Christchurch masjidain on 15 March 2019

Here’s an excerpt from volume 1, p. 104, under the section “The nationalist far right, the radical right and the extreme right-wing”:

“To the right of traditional right-wing conservative and libertarian opinions is a political space that has been called the far right. It is occupied by a range of ideologies, orientations and patterns of thinking. These include a strong form of nationalism that is not so much an ideology80 but rather an orientation that holds that western civilisation and its values are under threat from non-native (or alien) elements, whether people (particularly immigrants) or ideas (such as multiculturalism). It is this form of far right thinking that is primarily relevant for our inquiry. There are other far right patterns of thinking – including “deep-state” conspiracy theories (such as QAnon)81 or anti-feminist ideologies (such as “incel” ideology).82 While sexist attitudes often form part of extreme right-wing thinking and anti-feminist ideologies can act as a gateway to other extreme right-wing ideologies,83 these patterns of thinking are of less relevance for our purposes. Right-wing extremism experts Tore Bjørgo and Jacob Aasland Ravndal have provided a simple taxonomy of the nationalist far right, which for the purposes of this report, we adopt.”84


15. New Report finds Christchurch terrorist radicalized on YouTube and Facebook

Quotes from the article:

“The two platforms that had the biggest impact on the shooter’s mindset: YouTube and Facebook.

Following the attack that left 51 people dead at two Christchurch mosques in March of last year, the New Zealand government launched an independent inquiry into the spree killing. The results of that report paint a picture of how the shooter, white supremacist Brenton Tarrant, came to commit such a heinous act.

The report specifically found that YouTube played a major role in radicalizing the man.

“What particularly stood out was the statement that the terrorist made that he was ‘not a frequent commentator on extreme right-wing sites and YouTube was a significant source of information and inspiration’,” said New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern while discussing the report. “This is a point I plan to make directly to the leadership of YouTube.”

Tarrant was a fan of the once-prominent far-right YouTuber Stefan Molyneux, as well as other figures on the right such as white nationalists Richard Spencer and Lauren Southern. According to the report, Tarrant even donated money to right-wing organizations and Freedomain Radio, which was created by Molyneux. YouTube banned both Molyneux and Spencer from the platform this past summer.”

“Facebook also played a role in the radicalization of the Christchurch shooter, according to the report.

Tarrant frequently posted Islamophobic rhetoric in far-right Facebook Groups such as The Lads Society Season Two, United Patriots Front, and True Blue Crew. He also spoke about inspiration he pulled from Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf on the social network.

In one particularly interesting exchange, pointed out by Vice, Tarrant’s mother calls him a “neo-Nazi” in a Facebook message. Tarrant was bothered by this because he worried Facebook’s moderation systems would detect the word and take action against his account.

Mashable reached out to Facebook for comment and will update this piece when we hear back.”

17. Interesting Article – The Far-Right Plot to Flood Radio Airwaves with Racism

Quote 1:
“This is just one example of “groyping” – a new far-right tactic to ambush unsuspecting spaces on the internet and radio airwaves, and flood them with far-right, racist conspiracy theories and jokes.”

Quote 2:
“The conspiracy theory that white British people are going to become a minority is one of the key messages being pushed by groypers. This particular bit of racist crankery comes from some demographic modelling conducted in 2010 by the highly controversial Oxford professor David Coleman. Coleman created several demographic projections, one of which suggested that white Brits could become a minority by 2066. This speculation was widely covered by the media in 2013, but very few outlets mentioned Coleman had been a member of the Eugenics Society and was a co-founder of anti-migrant campaign group Migration Watch.”

18. White-bred terrorist: the making of a killer

Quote 1:
“Determining whether Tarrant was acting alone turned out to be complicated. He was the only shooter; but equally, he was part of a web of online and real-world extremism that had helped radicalise him, then cheered him on as he went about his killing. Though Christchurch police ended his massacre less than 20 minutes after it started, the threat from the ideology that forged him lingers.

To understand this contradiction, it’s worth tracing the path Tarrant trod from a small town in NSW, out into the world, then back across the Tasman to New Zealand.”

Quote 2:
“According to Julia Ebner, an Austrian researcher into new waves of extremism with the London-based Institute for Strategic Dialogue, Europe’s new far right is showing a keen interest in such destinations. This is particularly so among those known as “Identitarians”, who believe Europe is under attack by Muslims who seek to displace them in their “traditional lands” via “outbreeding” and immigration. Many in the movement champion the one-time Serbian ultra-nationalist leader Slobodan Miloševic, best known for war crimes including the 1995 murder of 8000 Bosniaks, a mainly Muslim minority, during the Bosnian War.”
