Nonie Darwish is an Egyptian-American human rights activist, founder of Arabs For Israel, and the Director of Former Muslims United. She is the author of:

Growing up in Gaza under Egyptian rule, Nonie Darwish is an incredibly brave woman who speaks and writes from first-hand, direct experience. Her message is that most Americans, out of innocent ignorance, do not understand the true nature of Islam or the motivations of its followers.  Many others, who are coming to understand it, still have trouble believing it and do not speak about it truthfully out of political correctness, a sense of politeness, or a hope that simply ignoring it is the best approach. The result is continuing misery and oppression for the followers of Islam and a great danger for all.

On January 29, 2013, Ms Darwish spoke to a mostly Jewish audience in Phoenix, Arizona, sponsored by Young Israel of Phoenix, led by Rabbi Reuven Mann.  The video below contains Ms Darwish’s remarks and questions from her audience.

In April, 2012, Nonie Darwish also delivered an honest and brave presentation at Temple University, sponsored by the David Horowitz Freedom Center and The Students for Intellectual Freedom.

  1. The Western Media does not want to “get it”!!!!!

  2. @AmericaDuped The media are generally on the left, and the left wants to destroy the west. Islam wants to destroy the left. Thus, is this willful blindness, or an alliance of convenience?
