Militant  Islamism  is  a  Continuing  Threat


The U.S. is at war with Islamic terrorists who are willing to forfeit their own lives and the lives of many others in order to destroy the United States.  They are young men and women who are willing to kill thousands of innocent people in a misguided effort to become religious martyrs.  These people have no regard for American lives, or their own lives, as a result of their Islamic upbringing.

In 1998, Osama bin Laden said in an interview with ABC News, "Hostility toward America is a religious duty, and we hope to be rewarded for it by God".*

The word "Islam" means "submission".  All Mohammedans are commended to wage war against the "unbelievers" until they submit to Islam and the entire world becomes Islamic.*

The following is only a partial Islamic terrorist resume:
  • Eleven Israeli athletes murdered at the Munich Olympics (1972);
  • U.S. Marine barracks blown up in Beirut (1983);
  • Achille Lauro cruise ship hijacked and elderly, disabled American passenger killed (1985);
  • TWA Flight 847 hijacked (1985);
  • Pan Am Flight 103 bombed (1988);
  • World Trade Center bombed (1993);
  • U.S. embassies bombed in Kenya and Tanzania (1998);
  • USS Cole bombed (2000);
  • Sept. 11, 2001;
  • Madrid and London train bombings (2004 and 2005).*.

Additionally, there is some evidence that Islamic terrorists were involved in the Oklahoma City bombing and the explosion of TWA 800.

Militant Islamism is headed toward world domination, despite its claims to be a religion of peace.  (Islam is not a religion of peace, never has been, and every Muslim knows it isn't.)  Islam is not just another way to God or another path to Heaven — it is incompatible with Christianity.  If Christianity is true and valid then Islam cannot be.  The suicidal maniacs we hear about on television are just gullible young men and women who blow themselves up to get the attention of the American news media.  (Surely they will get their eternal reward, but it won't be what they bargained for — worshipping a false god ultimately results in condemnation.)  It is difficult to find the words to adequately describe the complete lack of human kindness displayed by these mean, evil, wicked, bad and nasty people, and their disgusting indifference to the suffering of others.

Even so, the rest of the Muslims — those who pretend to be innocent victims of anti-Islamic prejudice — are no less dangerous because Islam's ultimate goal is the forcible conversion of the world to their religion.  One thing Muslims know how to do is lay low and keep quiet until it's time to strike.

CAIR, ISNA and NAIT:  Organizations that deserve more scrutiny than they usually get in the mainstream press.



Please visit the Annie Jacobsen Page, which is a discussion of the suspicious activity on Northwest Flight 327, on June 29, 2004.  A group of fourteen Middle Eastern men were apparently on a "dry run" for a hijacking, looking for holes in the national air travel security system.  All were in the country illegally – on expired visas, yet they were questioned and released after they landed in Los Angeles.

CAIR shutting down free speech.  We are at a tipping point in our society.  Either we fight to survive or surrender to the forces of anarchy and despotism.  In collusion with Islamic supremacists, the Left has gone to the mats to bring down our nation in an unholy alliance we call the Red-Green Axis.  If they win, it spells the end for our republic.  And while we have gotten something of a break from their destructive designs with the election of Donald Trump as president, they are doing everything possible to keep America in the dark and intimidate us into silence.  I have seen this up close and personal over the past few days.  Last week I traveled to locations in the Midwest to speak on that issue.  I was accompanied by Phil Haney, a Department of Homeland Security founding employee who was investigated by the Obama administration because he identified a large number of Islamic terrorists hiding in plain sight inside the U.S.  Yes, he was investigated by the very agency that tasked him to do this job.  That is the level of insanity we confront today.

Muslim Inbreeding is a Huge Problem — And People Don't Want to Talk About It.  Marriage between cousins remains rampant in much of the Muslim world.  And the results are truly tragic.

The Path to Victory Begins with Knowing the Threat.  Since 9/11/01, Americans have been told by their leaders the problem the U.S. faces from "global terrorism" has nothing to do with Islam.  The threat, so the leaders say, is from "extremists" — or some other equally useless euphemism.  Now that barbaric violence perpetrated by muslims has become commonplace around the world, the enemy's talking points (read: information operation) have adjusted, and U.S. and other Western leaders and analysts have followed suit and adjusted their talking points as well.  Now we are told the problem is "Wahhabi Islam" or "a 7th century version of Islam" or "Salafi Islam" or muslims following a "perverted version of religion" or anything which has nothing to do with authentic doctrinal Islam.  All of these phrases are meant to mislead the non-muslim community into believing there is an authentic version of Islam which is peaceful, loving and non-violent.

How Leftists Aid the Jihadis' Deadly Cause.  The West and the United States are dealing with a supremacist, expansionist religion that seeks to annex the entire world by any means necessary, especially violence.  As in Austria, which the Nazis took over in 1938, the Islamschluss finds willing collaborators, like the weasely Herr Zeller in The Sound of Music.  In America, the collaborators bring in Muslims by any means necessary, such as the "diversity visa" of Sayfullo Saipov.  The Diversity Visa program, launched by New York Senator Chuck Schumer in 1990, makes 50,000 visas available, on a random basis, to people from countries with low rates of immigration to the United States.  Sayfullo Saipov is one of the lottery winners, though what he has to do with "diversity" is a mystery. [...] Saipov had no skill America needs, but the Diversity Visa program is all about bringing in people America doesn't need.

Diversity Is Our Terror.  New York City is an incredibly diverse place.  Here, an Uzbek Muslim immigrant in on a visa diversity lottery can run over Argentinian tourists, an Egyptian-Palestinian Muslim can shoot a Danish musician on the observation deck of the Empire State Building, Saudi Muslims can fly planes into the World Trade Center killing people from 77 countries, an Afghan Muslim can plant pressure cooker bombs in Chelsea, a Lebanese Muslim can open fire on a van of Jewish students and a Pakistani-Kuwaiti and Iraqi Muslim can bomb the World Trade Center.  Truly, diversity is our terror.  Nationally, the perpetrators and plotters of Islamic terrorism in just the last ten years have included Pakistanis (San Bernardino, Garland, UC Merced), Chechens (Boston Marathon bombing), Afghans (Orlando shootings), Somalis (Portland Christmas Tree bomb plot, Minnesota mall stabbing, Ohio State Car Ramming, Columbus Machete Attack), Palestinians (Fort Hood, Chattanooga recruitment shootings) and Iraqis (Bowling Green plot).  That's a whole lot of diversity.  And it's killing us.

Get smart — Scrap the diversity lottery, be honest about terrorists.  President Trump is right:  We should end the diversity lottery for immigration.  It is an absurd system for randomly selecting who should come to the United States.  The lottery system should instead be replaced with a merit-based system that actively seeks people who will help grow the American economy.  Instead of continuing liberal, politically correct immigration rules that emphasize what the left calls "diversity," we need a system that focuses on an individual's merit, work and achievement.  What a person can contribute to America should be more important when making immigration decisions than whether he or she fits some political science mantra of diversity.  However, in light of the terrorist attacks in New York, Orlando, San Bernardino, Boston and elsewhere, closing the lottery loophole isn't enough.  We need to take far more decisive steps in improving and securing our immigration system.

Bisexual Student Threatened By School After Speaking Out Against Islam.  The mainstream media conveniently ignores the fact that in Islamic countries in the Middle East, people are often publicly executed for being homosexual.  Despite what leftists say, it definitely would not be safe to be an openly gay or bisexual person in a Muslim nation.  It makes little sense that the same socially liberal Americans who argue for feminism and open-mindedness for all sexualities would also be defending Islam.

Maryland development under fire after selling homes only to Muslims.  Dueling legal complaints and allegations of Islamophobia have marred an unfinished retirement community in Maryland after homes were sold only to Muslims.  Planners say interest in the River Run development was strong before stalled county permits halted construction.  Some elected officials and residents complained that the community violated fair-housing laws.  Stuck in the middle are Muslims who put down deposits to live in the quiet neighborhood overlooking the Gunpowder River — and non-Muslims who already live there.

Islam Is A Form Of Satanism.  Islam is a form of Satanism.  We know this to be true because Christ told Peter, "Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat" (Luke 22:31), and that "the gates of hell shall not prevail against" the Church (Matthew 16:18), indicating that Satan would continue to go against God's people.  Islam, being a religion that was founded deliberately to destroy the Church, is a religion of Satan, and is thus Satanism.  Both Muslims and Satanists have burned down churches, and that is because they are both enslaved by the dark power of demons.

A Muslim Photographer Shows The True Face Of Islam (Part 4).  Are Muslims an "oppressed community" in this country?  Where is the evidence for this?  In the series of manufactured "hate crimes" used to swell the numbers of the latter?  In all the examples of smarmy interfaith outreach where Christians and Jews feel they have to defend Muslims and Islam, but never feel they have an obligation to find out first about what is in the texts of Islam, and what Muslims are routinely taught, and especially how they are taught to regard Infidels?  They defend the faith, by taking it on faith.

Muslim Brotherhood's U.S. Political Infiltration on Steroids.  In 2008, during the largest terrorism funding trial in U.S. history, United States v.  Holy Land Foundation, a document published in 1991 outlined Muslim plans to take over America.  An Explanatory Memorandum:  On the General Strategic Goal for the Group, seized in a 2004 FBI raid of the Virginia home of a Muslim Brotherhood operative, was presented during the trial as evidence of "a Civilization-Jihadist Process."  It outlined the Muslim Brotherhood goal to conduct a "grand jihad in eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within and 'sabotaging' its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated."  For several decades, this well-organized and well-funded effort to subvert our constitutional republic and replace it with an Islamic government under Islamic law has focused on infiltrating all levels and branches of the U.S. government.

The West is delusional about de-radicalising jihadists.  There are hundreds of former Islamic State fighters now back in the West; at least 750, according to Europol Director Rob Wainwright, although as many as 2,500 European-born fighters are likely to be in 'various stages of returning'.  A few return claiming that they have renounced Jihad, like the Canadian who breezily dismissed his time fighting for Islamic State as something 'that's behind me, we all do things that we regret'.  But of the numerous returnees [David] Thomson interviewed, the majority were unrepentant and only one, Zoubeir, has co-operated with the authorities to promote an anti-Islamist message within his local community.  'They're still jihadists,' Zoubeir said of his former comrades.  'That's the reason why most aren't prepared to give evidence against others... because they consider France impious, an enemy of Islam, which fights their brothers'.

What Is The Purpose of Islamic Centers/Mosques in America?  Many Americans believe a mosque or Islamic Center is simply a "Muslim church."  This could not be further from the truth.  In Islam, Mohammad is considered the al Insan al Kamil — the perfect example of a man.  Anything he did is considered the example for all Muslims to follow for all time.  Muslim men can marry girls as young as six years old because Mohammad did.  Mohammad beheaded Jews at the Battle of the Trench, so this is an "excellent example" for Muslims to follow.  And Mohammad built mosques.  Islam defines itself as a "complete way of life (social, cultural, political, military, religious)" governed by sharia (Islamic Law).  There is no separation of politics, religion, or military operations.  Mohammad was a political, religious, and military leader.  The mosque was and is a place where politics, religion, community, and military affairs are all combined.  Mohammad used mosques as a place for the community to gather and learn about Islam.  It was a place to store food, water, weapons, and ammunition.  It was a place where jihadis lived and trained.  It was also the place where battles were planned and the place from which battles were launched.  So, thats what a mosque is.

Geert Wilders:  "In My Opinion, Islam Is Not a Religion".  [Scroll down]  "Decades ago, a few thousand people from Islamic countries would stay temporarily.  But temporarily turned out to be permanently.  Those thousands of guest workers became hundreds of thousands.  And in Europe millions of people by now.  Back then those people were called upon to integrate and assimilate.  But Islam, the word says it already, seeks to dominate.  Not long ago Professor Koopmans found that as much as seventy percent of Muslims find Islamic rules more important than secular laws.  In Europe almost weekly innocent people are slaughtered in name of Allah and Islam.  Proudly.  We have been declared war and we refuse to defend ourselves."

The Destruction of the Individual.  The American Left makes a show of disapproving any but the most denatured, toothless and universalist religious beliefs.  They are suffused with a sexual ethos that is amoral and libertine by the standards of the recent past.  Their intellectual post-modernism specifically prevents any moral judgement or ethical framework.  In fact they pride themselves on the ability to"deconstruct" the traditions and values that under-pin our civilization.  Yet, they seem able to put aside their fractious identity politics in order to be unaccountably tolerant — even supportive of Radical Islam That political religion commits terror against the rest of the world and has spawned despotisms of religious elites of some degree in the entire Muslim world.  They also demand the killing of apostates, the torture and murder of homosexuals, the subjugation, rape and "honor" murder of women and children:  This begs for explanation.

What Changed?  I find it harder to mark [the 9/11 anniversary] as the years go by.  If this is a war, there's no agreement on what we're up against:  Terrorism?  Islamic terrorism?  Islamic extremism?  Islam?  Whatever it is, a president who, on the campaign trail, mocked his predecessor's inability to use the words "radical Islam" himself eschewed all mention of the I-word today.  September 11th 2001 was supposedly "the day everything changed" — if by "everything changed" you mean "the rate of mass Muslim immigration to the west doubled".  As that absurd statistic suggests, we are not where I thought we would be 16 years on:  We run around fighting for worthless bits of barren sod like Helmand province in Afghanistan, while surrendering day by day some of the most valuable real estate on the planet, such as France and Sweden.

Germany:  The Rise Of Islam.  The old-fashioned Christian society will never come back, but it is critical for even a secular West to stay based on — and profoundly inspired by — its Judeo-Christian values.  The next stage seems to be a German cultural and religious landscape dominated by atheists and two minority religions:  Islam and Christianity.  If the secularists do not take Western Christian heritage — or at least the Judeo-Christian values from which it sprang — more seriously and start defending it, both atheists and Christians will soon be dominated by the rising political and supremacist religion, Islam.  A prominent Muslim fundamentalist organization in Germany, banned by the federal government, calls itself "The True Religion" ("Die Wahre Religion").  They apparently think they are overtaking Judeo-Christian values.

Everything I Needed To Know About Islam I Learned On 9/11.  That Tuesday was a long and terrible education.  In those hours, millions of Americans were being educated about many things: what happens when jet planes collide with skyscrapers, how brave men can reach the 78th floor with 100 pounds of equipment strapped to their backs and what are the odds are of finding anyone alive underneath the rubble of a falling tower.  They were learning about a formerly obscure group named Al Qaeda and its boss.  But they were also being educated about Islam.  Islamic terrorism was once something that happened "over there." You saw it on the covers of Time or Newsweek back when those were staples of checkout counters and medical offices.  But even after the World Trade Center bombing, it wasn't truly "over here."  But now it was.  The war was here.  Each generation is born into history out of a moment of crisis.  We are defined by our struggles.  By the wars we fight and do not fight.  On a Tuesday morning in September, my generation was born into history.

Federal Court Dismisses Entire Justice Department Mosque Case.  Yesterday [8/31/2017], I reported on an outlandish effort to shake down a Christian pastor about his views on Islam by the Justice Department in an Obama-era holdover case.  Today, a federal court entirely dismissed the Justice Department's case.  United States District Court Judge Norman Moon ruled that the case was moot because the mosque settled with Culpeper County.  The mosque obtained a settlement allowing it to pump and haul sewage from the land.  The United States had sought to keep the case alive, and to conduct wide ranging and intrusive discovery against third parties such as Pastor Steve Harrelson of the Mt. Lebanon Baptist Church.

Those Who Don't Fight Evil Fight Statues.  With regard to fighting communism — which, aside from Nazism, has been the greatest evil in the modern world (it killed and enslaved far more people than Nazism) — the left was an obstacle, not an ally.  The left in the West and elsewhere did far more to enable communist evil than to stop it.  The same holds true with regard to the greatest evil in the world at this time:  totalitarian Islam, or Islamism.  The left is doing precisely what it did during the war against communism:  It's fighting the anti-Islamists, not the Islamists.  Just as it labeled anti-communists "cold warriors" and other derisive epithets, the left labels those fighting Islamism as "Islamophobes" and, of course, "racists."  In the moral order as perceived by the left, it is the anti-Islamists who are the enemy of the good.

White Christian girl put into foster care with non-English speaking Muslim family.  MPs have been urged to launch an inquiry into the placement of foster children after a white Christian girl was reportedly put into the care of a non-English speaking Muslim family.  The child, aged five, who speaks English as her first language, has been looked after by two different Muslim households in the past six months.  The girl was reportedly told to remove her Christian crucifix necklace and was not allowed to eat carbonara because it contained bacon.

Trump's Pershing Tweet in Response to Barcelona Was More Than Just Genius Trolling.  One of the big mistakes Trump's critics make is to assume he is very stupid.  Hence the liberal media's delight in his Pershing tweet in the aftermath of the Barcelona massacre.  They think it shows the president to be an historically illiterate and gullible fool because — or so they claim — he is repeating a debunked myth that General Pershing used bullets dipped in pig blood when fighting Muslim terrorists in the Philippines. [...] Trump was telling it as a "story" to illustrate an important point about the psychology of war.  When your enemy fights dirty, you don't cower and apologize and ask what we have done to deserve such punishment.  You give as good as you get.

Islamists Infest England With Slavery And Child Sex Rings.  The BBC tries to dink and dunk around the subject, but, a goodly chunk of those running slavery rings are Islamists.  Not all, mind you.  But, a goodly chunk.

Three Muslims Sentenced in $28,000,000 Tobacco, Tax Fraud and Money Laundering Scheme.  A Hopkinton man was sentenced today in federal court in Boston for evading federal income taxes and defrauding the Commonwealth of Massachusetts of millions of dollars in connection with the sale of cigarettes and other tobacco products.  Raza Ali, 56, of Hopkinton, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge William G. Young to a year and a day in prison and two years of supervised release.  Ali was also ordered to pay a fine of $30,000; restitution to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in the amount of $28,072,946; and forfeit all property involved in the offense, including a warehouse-full of tobacco products and over $160,000 seized during the investigation.

Dearborn, Michigan:  America's biggest Muslim 'NO-GO Zone'.  Over the past few years, Americans have gradually begun to realize that something's rotten in the state of Michigan.  After numerous incidents, there is no denying that Michigan has a problem, and it's coming from its fast-growing Islamic community.

Civilization Jihad, Propaganda, and Ignorance.  The heads of state of all 56 muslim nations on earth are party to the OIC (Organisation of Islamic Cooperation), which approved the Cairo Declaration on Human Rights on Islam and served it to the United Nations in 1993.  The Cairo Declaration officially states the Islamic world legally defines "Human Rights" as the imposition of sharia on the entire world.  Therefore, the leaders of all Islamic nations on earth have the same understanding of human rights as ISIS and Al Qaeda.

Western Values Are Superior.  Intellectual elites argue that different cultures and their values are morally equivalent.  That's ludicrous.  Western culture and values are superior to all others.  I have a few questions for those who'd claim that such a statement is untrue or smacks of racism and Eurocentrism.  Is forcible female genital mutilation, as practiced in nearly 30 sub-Saharan African and Middle Eastern countries, a morally equivalent cultural value?  Slavery is practiced in Mauritania, Mali, Niger, Chad and Sudan; is it morally equivalent?  In most of the Middle East, there are numerous limitations placed on women, such as prohibitions on driving, employment and education.  Under Islamic law, in some countries, female adulterers face death by stoning.  Thieves face the punishment of having their hands severed.  Homosexuality is a crime punishable by death in some countries.  Are these cultural values morally equivalent, superior or inferior to Western values?

Islam's Bizarre Philosophical Problem.  When attacking an epistemological structure, it is a often a waste of time to attack the consequences of a belief system when one can cut it down at the root.  Islam has such a bizarre problem.  And Muslims avoid it, for fear it would cause the whole religion to collapse.  Islam, like Judaism, is monadic.  It only admits of a hard absolutely unitary deity.  However, Islam makes an amazing contradictory statement:  the Koran is eternal.  This introduces a real problem.  Anything which is eternal is, by definition, deity.  And that strikes at the very core of Islam's claim to a hard monotheism.

Trump-Hatred Is All About Islam.  One and a quarter billion people, roughly a fifth of the world's population, cannot make the leap from tribal society into the modern world.  Their anguish and rage is a source of continuous instability and an occasional threat to the security of Western countries.  Western leaders from George W. Bush to Pope Francis I struggled to avoid a clash of civilizations, praising Islam as a religion of peace.  Trump, by contrast, told Muslim leaders in Saudi Arabia May 21 that the onus was on them to extirpate terrorists from their countries and mosques.  Trump isn't seeking civilizational war.  He's giving Muslim leaders fair warning and a chance to avoid it.  That is what the whole kerfuffle is about.

Inoculating Against Islam.  Every since 9/11 Americans, including Christians, have been converting to Islam or become apologists for Islam.  Can this be stopped and how?  There are many reasons they choose Islam.  Islam is furiously masculine and today Christianity has become feminine, yin, in its approach to life.  So, if you are a woman and want a more masculine man, you are much more apt to find that in Islam.  Also, if you are a woman and want a husband, Muslims are the marrying kind.  Then, there are people in this world who want discipline and Islam certainly gives structure.  Once you get on the Islam train you no longer have to worry about choices.  Islam tells you how to eat, have sex, brush your teeth, use the bathroom and every other aspect of life.  There is also the social bonding of being in a tight knit group-club.  These are a few of the reasons people convert.  Preventing conversion is easy to accomplish by inoculating anyone with what Islam really is.

5 Shameful True Stories Muslims Desperately Don't Want You To Know About Their Prophet Muhammad.  In the Islamic religion, Muhammad is revered as God's final prophet and the ideal man, the perfect example for all time.  But just how perfect is Muhammad's example Muslim males especially must strive to emulate?  Here's five little-known shocking stories about Islam's ideal man Muslims desperately don't want you to be aware of.

Linda Sarsour calls American Muslims not to assimilate and for jihad.  When you hear the words "jihad" and "our top priority is not to assimilate" and this call is made to "please Allah" at a public event by an award-winning Champion of Change in a Western country you know that country is in deep trouble.  That is precisely what happened last week in America, in Chicago, on July 6.  Linda Sarsour has been hiding her agenda behind the cloak of liberal progressivism but, occasionally, her real identity emerges.  At the annual meeting of the Islamic Society of North America she made a speech which should trouble people who truly believe in diversity and, well, liberal politics.

Linda Sarsour:  Resisting Trump Is a 'Form of Jihad'.  Anti-Israel activist Linda Sarsour said that resisting President Donald Trump is a "form of jihad" at the Islamic Society of North America's 54th annual convention on Saturday [7/1/2017].  Sarsour, who has vocally expressed sympathy towards terrorists, was the keynote speaker at a community service recognition luncheon during the convention.  "I hope that when we stand up to those who oppress our communities, that Allah accepts from us that as a form of jihad," Sarsour said of Trump's administration.

Is Radical Islam Horrifying the West into Paralysis?  We have paralyzed ourselves.  We censor the cartoons, the graphic photos of the terrorists' victims and even the faces and names of the jihadists.  The Islamic terrorists, on the other hand, are not publicity-seekers; they are soldiers ready to kill and die in the name of what they care about.

Germany and Islam.  Germany has a bizarre historical connection with Islam that lies beneath much of the present day crisis in Europe.  One could argue that these connections are just the product of historical coincidences, but with Germany the coincidences seem to add up regularly.

Islamism Isn't a Religion, It's a Political System at War with Us.  Last week, the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs convened a hearing on political Islam, also called "Islamism."  The committee invited four witnesses:  Ayaan Hirsi-Ali, Asra Q. Nomani, Michael E. Leiter, former director of the United States National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), and John Lenczowski, president of the Institute of World Politics.  The hearing shines a bright light on the dysfunction that attends our treatment of the topic.  In her opening remarks, Senator Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) clearly articulated the Democratic position on Islamism:  "Anyone who twists or distorts religion to a place of evil is an exception to the rule... We should not focus on religion."  Unfortunately, Democrats do not have a monopoly on willful blindness when it comes to Islamism or "Sharia supremacy."  Hirsi-Ali and Nomani, both under a death sentence from jihadis on the charge of apostasy, wrote about the hearing in the New York Times.  They noted that the four Democratic female senators — McCaskill, Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.), and Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.) — feminists all, who whiff the scent of sexism in every passing breeze, did not ask either of them a single question.

Convert, Pay, or Die.  Islamic men between the ages of eighteen and forty-five years old commit more than 90% of terrorist attacks.  Yet singling out people who fit those criteria for extra scrutiny is profiling and therefore implicit racism deserving of nothing less than outright excommunication from polite society -- along with, of course, the total dissolution of one's life, career, and safety.  This is why, with increasing regularity, those who commit terrorist acts are "known wolves."  They tell us what they believe in and then tell us what they plan to do.  Yet, because they haven't actually killed anyone yet, our law enforcement agencies are frozen, like a deer caught in a tractor-trailer's headlights.  London mayor Sadiq Khan, when asked about the roughly 400 jihadists who trained and fought with ISIS and have returned to England, replied, "I can't follow 400 people."  As if sending them back to ISIS to die for their beliefs is something not even worthy of consideration. [...] I think most would agree that a little "anti-immigrant sentiment" is better than seeing your daughter blown up.

Muslim Doctors Refuse To Help Dying Christian Man In Desperate Need Of Medical Attention.  A young Christian man became very sick and had to go to the hospital.  He was dying of suffocation and may have been able to be saved, but the Muslim doctors at the hospital refused to help him.  Their answer was that because he man was a sanitation worker and a Christian, his body was "dirty," and they did not want to make themselves ritually impure for Ramadan, so they let him die instead.

Michigan's first Muslim-controlled city council utterly dysfunctional — erupts in screaming, swearing, and little else.  Congratulations, Warren:  Your city council looks a lot better, relatively speaking, this Friday afternoon [6/2/2017].  But it's only by comparison, and courtesy of the Hamtramck City Council.  That body met for an emergency meeting today, and, depending on who's talking, the reasons may differ.

35 St. Louis-area convenience store owners indicted following federal raids.  A federal grand jury has indicted 35 store owners on federal conspiracy charges for trafficking contraband cigarettes, distributing controlled substances and money laundering.  According to reports, the suspects conspired for more than 2 years to buy contraband cigarettes in St. Louis, a low tax market, while transporting and distributing them in Chicago, Illinois, and New Jersey, which are high tax markets.

[There are at least] 23,000 Jihadists in Britain, Not 3,000 As Previously Claimed.  Government sources have confessed that there are at least 23,000 jihadists in Britain — more than seven times higher than previously revealed.  Until recently, the public had been led to believe there were around 3,000 known jihadists in Britain, with 500 being subject to active investigations led by MI5.  Whitehall officials have now disclosed that a further 20,000 individuals have been identified as posing a "residual risk", according to The Times.

A 1,389 Year-Old 'Phobia'?  A direct correlation exists between Western ignorance of history and Western ignorance of Islam's "troublesome" doctrines.  It is this connection that allows Islam's apologists to get away with so many distortions and outright lies meant to shield Islam. [...] The fact is, Western peoples, including some of their luminaries, have portrayed Islam as a hostile and violent force from the very start — often in terms that would make today's "Islamophobe" blush.  And that wasn't because Europeans were "recasting the other" to "validate their imperial aspirations" (to use the tired terminology of Edward Said that has long dominated academia's treatment of Western-Muslim interactions).  Rather, it was because, from the very start, Islam treated the "infidel" the same way ISIS treats the infidel:  atrociously.

19% of infant deaths in London borough because parents are related, almost 1/2 are Pakistani.  One in five child deaths in a borough of London were because the parents were closely related, a report has found.  Redbridge Council's health and wellbeing board heard how 19% of infant deaths between 2008 and 2016 were 'attributable to consanguineous relationships'.  Consanguineous relationships refer to couples who are at least second cousins or more closely related and are legal in the UK.

It's a Coup!  Not a day goes by without an accusation by Democrats in search of a crime.  When President Trump used an Executive Order to initiate his travel ban from countries known to be hotbeds of Islamic terrorism, the Left used the courts to stop his ban from taking effect.  Although President Trump had the statutory authority to execute the ban pursuant to section 1182(f) and 1185(a) of Title 8, they succeeded in halting the ban by filing their lawsuits in Federal District Court within the far left 9th Circuit (the most overturned court in the country), dominated by Clinton and Obama appointed judges, well known for its judicial activism and disregard of Constitutional principles.  Consequently, Muslim refugees who cannot be vetted for lack of documentation continue to stream onto our shores and increase the risk of terror attacks on the mainland.

America's Islam Trance.  Let's take a closer look now at the bizarre alliance between two seemingly incompatible utopian ideologies — the progressive left and expansionist Islam — currently undermining America at every turn.  After all, those on the Democratic left are continually defending, excusing and running interference for Islamic supremacists in America, not to mention "welcoming" into our country thousands of Muslims from the most radicalized regions on earth.  Why would they do that?  The alliance between the left and Islam can best be explained by the overarching reality that both share a common enemy, Christianity.  Thus does the left warmly sidle up to Islam, which, truth be known, were it in charge would destroy the left, throwing members of some of the left's main constituent groups off buildings or hanging or stoning or otherwise executing or enslaving them.  Both since the Marxist left and Shariah Islam both detest and fear Christian civilization more than each other, they therefore are natural, albeit temporary, allies in their shared aim to defeat a common enemy.

Emmanuel Macron, Useful Idiot of Islamism.  During the cold war with the Soviet Union, they were called "Useful Idiots". These people were not members of the Communist Party, but they worked for, spoke in favor of and supported the ideas of Lenin and Stalin.  In the 21st century, Communism is finally dead but Islamism has grown and is replacing it as a global threat.  Like Communism, Islamism — or Islamic totalitarianism — has been collecting its "Useful Infidels" the same way Communism collected its Useful Idiots.  There is, however, an important difference: under the Soviet Union, Useful Idiots were intellectuals.  Now, Useful Infidels are politicians, and one of them may be elected president of France today.

Darkness at the Heart of Liberal Progressivism.  Ironically, it seems that the only religion that the Left deems worthy of protection is the one major world religion that stands diametrically opposed to religious freedom, and indeed, to all the founding principles of equality and liberty which Americans have died to preserve.  It is not that liberals worship the God of that religion, nor of any other (with the possible exception of the goddess, Mother Earth), but rather, that they regard Islam as a vehicle for tearing down the traditions of Western Civilization, and thereby destroying our nation.

Can Islam ever be reformed?  The reform Islam movement is nothing new and Muslims have attempted to reform Islam for fourteen hundred years and always failed.  Leaders of such movements were often beheaded for apostasy.  Jihad and sharia are foundational principles of Islam and no mincing of words will change that.  That in addition to lying, deception and terror as approved Islamic tools to stay in control, could never help any reform movement to build on.  How can anyone build on a foundation of lies and violence?

Political Islam:  Democracy's Lurking Iceberg.  [Scroll down]  Rioting in Denmark in 2005 by agitated Islamists left 250 dead after the Danish publication Jyllyands-Posten published the infamous "Danish cartoons," which mocked Mohammed as a suicide bomber.  Rather than imprison the rioters and murderers, Danish legislators enacted blasphemy laws restricting the free speech of all Danes.  Also in Denmark, a 42-year-old man was recently prosecuted under these same blasphemy laws for burning a Koran in his own backyard.  Ironically, in 1997, Danish public TV promoted the burning of a bible on air.  At present, Cyprus, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Lithuania, Norway, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain and Switzerland have enacted criminal penalties for "Religious Insults."

The Greatest Threat to America Isn't Islam — It's the Left.  Islam is a religion stuck in pre-medieval times and has rarely produced any civilizational, scientific or technological advancements.  Around 40 percent of Muslims worldwide are illiterate.  Muslim nations are unable to manufacture even the most elementary of things without the aid of Western engineering, knowledge, and technology.  To a great and powerful civilization, Islam can never pose a threat. [...] The problems we are now facing with Islam are only symptoms of the left's success in paralyzing the West and preventing it from asserting itself.  Islam was never strong.  The West has become weak.  That is why fear of Islam is misplaced.

Islamist Attacks on Holidays.  Nearly 50 people were murdered on Palm Sunday when Islamic State terrorists bombed two Coptic churches in an Easter celebration-nightmare.  The next day, on the eve of the Jewish holiday of Passover, the Islamic State's Sinai affiliate launched rockets at Israel.  Just before Christmas, a terrorist claimed by the Islamic State rammed a truck into Berlin's crowded Christmas market, killing 12 people.  And in Australia, a group of self-radicalized Islamists planned to attack St Paul's Cathedral.  In 2011, Nigerian Islamists murdered nearly 40 Catholic worshipers in a Christmas Day attack.  Terrorists attack where and when they can.  But they seem keenly aware that turning holidays into horror can carry greater shock and terror.

Islam's doctrines of deception.  To better understand Islam, one must appreciate the thoroughly legalistic nature of the religion.  According to sharia (Islamic law) every conceivable human act is categorised as being either forbidden, discouraged, permissible, recommended, or obligatory.  "Common sense" or "universal opinion" has little to do with Islam's notions of right and wrong.  Only what Allah (through the Quran) and his prophet Muhammad (through the Hadith) have to say about any given issue matters; and how Islam's greatest theologians and jurists — collectively known as the ulema, literally, "they who know" — have articulated it.  According to sharia, in certain situations, deception — also known as 'taqiyya', based on Quranic terminology, — is not only permitted but sometimes obligatory.  For instance, contrary to early Christian history, Muslims who must choose between either recanting Islam or being put to death are not only permitted to lie by pretending to have apostatised, but many jurists have decreed that, according to Quran 4:29, Muslims are obligated to lie in such instances.

FBI's Awlaki surveillance footage revealed.  New files obtained through a federal lawsuit show, for the first time, FBI surveillance images of American-born radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki on the same day he spoke at a Pentagon lunch to promote post-9/11 outreach to the Muslim community. [...] Awlaki, who became the first American put on the CIA's capture-or kill list, died in a drone strike in Yemen in 2011.  The cleric's travels in and out of America while he steadily moved up the Al Qaeda food chain have been the subject of extensive reporting and investigations by Fox News, [...]

FBI Investigating Radical Terrorists in All 50 States as Threats Hit Peak.  Federal authorities have open investigations into radical Islamic terrorists in all 50 states, according to the Department of Homeland Security, which is warning that the threat of terrorism in the United States has reached an all time high with radicalized individuals in the country plotting to strike "each and every single day."  The FBI has "open terrorist investigations in all 50 states," according to DHS Secretary John Kelly, who disclosed on Tuesday that there have been at least 37 "ISIS-linked plots to attack our country" since 2013, a number that shows no signs of diminishing.  Kelly, in his first wide-ranging public address on the threat of terrorism in America since taking office, warned that America's borders remain wide-open and that there is evidence terror-linked individuals are exploiting these national security weaknesses and entering the United States.

Muslims turn to elected office in increasing numbers.  Muslims' growing role in politics comes as they have set their roots in New Jersey over several decades and become more affluent and involved in their communities.  But their political participation is also part of a concerted effort to be more visible and take on leadership roles as a way to counter the bias that they see as more freely expressed in an increasingly hostile political climate.  New Jersey has at least 14 Muslim Americans serving in office.

New Data Depicts Global Demographic War Between Old Christians And Young Muslims.  Christianity is and has long been the world's largest religious faith.  Christians are also the most fertile of all religions overall.  They like babies.  Thirty-one percent of the world's 7.3 billion people currently identify as Christians.  Muslims represent nearly a quarter.  All other religions are significantly lower.  While Christianity is expected to continue to grow at a small rate, Islam is projected to make greater gains, coming within a decimal point by 2060.  They are expected to surpass Christianity in baby-making work by 2035.  While not all babies grow to adopt their parents' faith, most do.  It is a sociological truism that children tend to continue the religious traditions and overall lifestyles in which they were raised.  That Christians and Muslims are so fertile in a world where birth rates are nose-diving among most peoples and nations is no small part of their growth and strength.

Some Arguments for Muslim Religious Liberty Are More Compelling than Others.  [Scroll down]  Religious liberty as guaranteed by the Constitution has never been construed to mean that the members of any particular religion are exempt from the governing laws of the nation.  Faith doesn't grant anyone the constitutional right to beat their wife, abuse their children, or stone heretics.  It doesn't grant anyone the constitutional right to force other adults to join or belong to any religious, political, or social organization against their will.  There are, in other words, existing, constitutionally valid laws that restrict or prevent the adherents of Sharia law from imposing it on unwilling others.  Yet not all arguments for religious liberty are equally persuasive, and many advocates of Muslim religious liberty do more harm than good by misunderstanding both the reality of religious belief and the increasing public impatience with political correctness.

Study Finds the More Aware People Are, the Less They Like Islam.  The Islamophiles running San Diego public schools had better be careful that they don't teach the kids too much about Islam.  The more people learn about it, the less they like it: [...] If just watching the news can make you not like Islam, imagine the effect of actually learning about Mohammad and how his example has inspired so many other barbarous sociopaths over the centuries.

The Two Faces of Islam:  Why All Muslims Benefit from Terrorism.  While many Muslims are just as horrified by terrorism as the rest of us are, all Muslims nevertheless benefit from Islam.  This is because both peaceful and violent Muslims tend to share two important goals:  (1) the conversion of non-Muslims to Islam, and (2) the silencing of critics of Islam.  Since terrorism helps achieve these goals, all Muslims benefit from Islam.

CAIR Orders U.S. Air Force to Ditch "Anti-Muslim" Counterterrorism Instructor.  Under Barack Obama, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group that reportedly raises money for Hamas, wielded tremendous power and managed to bully law enforcement agencies at the local, state and federal level to alter counterterrorism training materials deemed by the group to discriminate against Muslims.  This includes getting the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to purge antiterrorism training curricula of material determined to be "offensive" to Muslims.

Islam and the Jihad in London.  It was a careful choice of words, Bernard Lewis being nothing if not careful.  In 2004, the West audibly gasped when its preeminent scholar of Islam famously told the German newspaper Die Welt,"Europe will be Islamic by the end of the century," if not sooner.  Listen carefully.  He did not say that Muslims will be the majority population in what is still recognizably Europe.  No, Professor Lewis said "Europe will be Islamic."  We are not talking about Muslims here.  We are talking about Islam.  Lots of individual Muslims desire peaceful coexistence, even assimilation.  But Islam's aim is to prevail.

Five Days and Two 'Known Wolf' Terror Attacks, Yet No Apparent Concern from Western Governments.  We've seen two more "Known Wolf" terror attacks in the West, and yet Western government authorities seem unwilling to acknowledge, let alone begin to address, the "Known Wolf" terror problem.  I first identified the "Known Wolf" terror trend and coined the term in October 2014 here at PJ Media, noting that many, possibly most, Islamic terrorists who actually committed terrorism in the West were already known to Western law enforcement, national security agencies, and intelligence services.  Yet sufficient action was not taken to prevent them from conducting terror attacks.

Does the Desert Storm War Memorial resemble an Islamic crescent?  Recall the Flight 93 Memorial is a massive outdoor mosque in the shape of an Islamic crescent pointing to Mecca.  Is it a coincidence that some see a resemblance to the Islamic crescent and star in this "left hook" memorial design?


Erdogan's Caliphate Threatens NATO.  Among NATO's most serious problems is Recip Erdogan, the president of Turkey.  He is more than a political nuisance, because he threatens both the commitment of NATO's members to defend each other and the Westernized composition of the nation he leads.  In the last half of the 19th century, under the Ottoman Empire's last caliph Abdulmejid, Turkey was known as "the sick man of Europe."  [...] Eighty-three years later, Turkey is led by a man whose principal goal is the re-creation of the Turkish Islamic state, Recip Erdogan.

The Travel Ban Is about Vetting — Which Means It's about Islam.  When it comes to protecting the United States from the threats posed by radical Islam, it has never been about President Donald Trump's executive orders: the first one that was torpedoed by the radical judiciary in January, and the new and improved version that was suspended this week — the Lawyer Left having conveniently managed to shop its challenge to Barack Obama's fellow Hawaiian and Harvard Law School classmate Judge Derrick Watson.  The issue is vetting.  Each executive order was conceived as a temporary step, a "hold in place" measure while the permanent solution, vetting, was carefully crafted and ultimately implemented.  Now, just as the Left hoped, the temporary step has not only overwhelmed the permanent solution.  It has made the permanent solution much more difficult — perhaps impossible — to achieve.

The Reagan Approach to Crushing Radical Islam.  David Satter, a former Moscow correspondent and a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute noted:  "I think we must begin by recognizing that, although it pretends to be a religion, radical Islam is an ideology.  In this respect, it is the blood brother of atheistic communism.  Both systems treat artificial dogma as infallible truth and seek to impose it on all of humanity."  Yes, attacking the ideology was important in defeating communism and it is relevant as a tactic in the war against radical Islam.

The King of Hatefacts.  [Scroll down]  Even the sane elements of the backlash were wrong.  The Federalist claimed he should have focused on culture and not race because it's not more white people we need, it's more Westerners.  This is a beautiful notion and I fully agree with it, but here on earth, we're not taking in immigrants who want to assimilate.  In fact, we are openly encouraging immigrants not to assimilate.  Public school teachers have dedicated their careers to eradicating patriotism and teaching our children how cruel and unusual we have been throughout history.  Politicians are knowingly avoiding immigrants who assimilate and focusing on ones who will antagonize the native population.  This is especially true in Britain, where Tony Blair's speechwriter conceded as much.  Look at the London bombings.  They were all radicalized in Britain.  One of them was a Jamaican who grew up in Bradford, where the Muslim population is booming.  Since the bombings, London has elected a Muslim mayor who proudly exclaims, "Immigrants shouldn't have to assimilate."  Here in America we have the Tsarnaev brothers, who grew up reading comic books and watching sports; but after years of being told America [is bad], they began to believe their relatives back in Chechnya.  Then they blew us up.

Deterrence and human nature.  [Scroll down]  Does vetting incoming refugees from the Middle East deter potential terrorists from entering the country, or does such scrutiny turn off people, radicalize them and encourage terrorism?  Did the Obama administration's euphemistic effort to eradicate the phrase "radical Islamic terrorism" — along with President Obama's apology tour and therapeutic Cairo speech — win hearts and minds in the Middle East?  Or did such outreach convince radicals that the United States was hardly to be feared, thus encouraging anti-American sentiment?  In the past eight years, the U.S. has backed off the red lines and deadlines it issued to Syria, Russia and Iran.  Did such equivocation earn America appreciation and respect for circumspection — or contempt for empty rhetoric?

Could Someone Please Inform the Judiciary That Jihadists Are Muslim?  [E]ven a cursory look at the six countries included in Trump's temporary travel ban exposes the court's legal, intellectual, and moral bankruptcy:  Syria not only contains the capital of ISIS's caliphate, it's also home to thousands of al-Qaeda-affiliated and other jihadist terrorists, and its government is a Hezbollah-, Iran-, and Russia-supported genocidal regime that is largely responsible for the worst humanitarian catastrophe of the 21st century.  Iran is a sworn enemy of the United States, is responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans, and is likely the world's foremost terror-exporting nation-state.  Yemen is the home of one of al-Qaeda's most potent remaining branches, is torn apart by civil war, and does not have a functioning government by any reasonable standard.  Libya is split between warring jihadist militias and nominal American allies.  ISIS attempted to establish a fallback stronghold in the city of Sirte, and it has been torn apart by civil war.  Somalia is a failed state.  Its own jihadist army, al-Shabaab, has exported terror beyond its borders, and Somalian immigrants have not only conducted terror attacks in the United States, they've sought to join with ISIS to carry out terror attacks at home and abroad.  Sudan long ago harbored Osama bin Laden, but in more recent years has launched its own jihadist genocide, killing tens of thousands (or, more likely, hundreds of thousands) of innocent men, women, and children.  But to a federal judge in Hawaii, all this is largely irrelevant.

Steve King States the Obvious, Unleashes Fury.  Kudos to [Rep. Steve] King for standing up for Western Civilization.  Even if few have the spine to say it, everyone who has spent more than a minute thinking about it understands that a society cannot be sustained by importing massive numbers of foreigners from an alien civilization rather than having babies of its own.  This is especially obvious when that alien civilization has been vehemently hostile for 1,400 years, and the foreigners are ostentatiously uninterested in assimilation.  Just because David Duke agrees with him does not mean he is wrong.  King is in for a storm, and deserves every patriot's support.

The secret that Blind Sheik lawyer Lynne Stewart took to her grave.  Radical lawyer Lynne Stewart, who died of cancer on Tuesday [3/7/2017], took to her grave a bizarre mystery:  What did an aging leftist find so all-fired attractive in a leader in the war that is being waged against America in the name of radical Islam?  You would think the left would be on the barricades with the rest of America.  Our opponents in this war, after all, seek a system that oppresses women, imposes a theological dictatorship, seethes with anti-Semitism and opposes sexual liberation.  Yet Stewart, a onetime schoolteacher turned lawyer, became so ideologically besotted with Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman that she betrayed America's system of justice — and her own promises — when she carried out of prison messages from Rahman and helped deliver them to his followers.

The Muslim Brotherhood is making it impossible to criticise Islam, government report admits.  The Muslim Brotherhood is creating a 'parallel social structure' in Sweden with the help of 'political elites' who foster a culture of silence, a damning government report has found.  The document claims that the Brotherhood is building a 'parallel society' within the Scandinavian country, which can help the Islamist group to achieve its ends.  Founded in 1826, the Muslim Brotherhood aims to organise Muslims politically in order to create a global, Sunni Islamic Caliphate.

Arabic Streets Signs In American City Indicates Islamic Takeover.  How would you feel if you drove into a town here in the United States and found that many of the street signs were in Arabic only with no English wording?  Then you look around and discover that many of the signs on businesses were also in Arabic.  Not possible you say?  Think again!  Welcome to Dearborn, Michigan.

Pedophilia makes allies of Islam and the Left.  Ever wondered why the radical left of the West consistently defend and ally with Islam, although Islam prohibits and condemns so many of the causes and groups championed by the Left, such as feminism and homosexuals?  One proffered explanation is the old adage "The enemy of my enemy is my friend" — both the Left and Islam are hostile to the traditional values and beliefs of Western civilization which are rooted in Christianity.

Video Clip Shows IRGC Support For Terror in America.  As Iran's government claimed that the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) is widely known to be fighting terrorism in neighboring countries, a newly-emerged video clip purportedly shows an IRGC strategist threatening to unleash terror cells in the U.S., targeting nuclear missile launch facilities, among other things.  At a time when the Trump administration is considering listing the IRGC as a foreign terrorist organization, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said at the weekend U.S. efforts to sanction the organization have never benefited the U.S.

It's Official:  Liberals Only Care About Illegals and Muslims.  Hey, liberals!  There's a reason why illegal Hispanics and jihadis aren't represented by the system.  In the first place, they have broken the law by coming here without completing the administrative state's vital and voluminous paperwork.  In the second place, they intend to break the law by violently overturning the United States government and its separation of church and state, replacing Western culture with Sharia law.

DOJ Settles Zoning Lawsuit Against City; Mosque Construction Will Proceed.  The Justice Department has settled a religious discrimination lawsuit brought late in President Obama's term against a Michigan city for turning down an Islamic center's zoning request to build a mosque.  The government lawsuit came after the American Islamic Community Center sued the city of Sterling Heights in August over the denial.  The center wanted to build in the city as they said they've outgrown their building in Madison Heights, and most of their members currently live in Sterling Heights.

Why should Muslims Feel Entitled to Move to America?  One might ask where is the gratitude from Muslims around the world for what America has done for them:  America liberated Kuwait and Iraq from the murderous Saddam Hussein regime, established no fly and protected zones for them in Bosnia and Iraq, toppled the murderous Muammar Gaddafi in Libya, provided untold billions of dollars in aid over the years to Muslims throughout the world and allowed over 1.6 million Muslims to settle in America since 9/11, when we were attacked by Muslims in the name of Islam.  What have we received in return?  Oil embargos, oil price gouging, terrorism and mass murder.

Report: 72 convicted of terrorism from 'Trump 7' mostly Muslim countries.  Since 9/11, 72 individuals from the seven mostly Muslim countries covered by President Trump's "extreme vetting" executive order have been convicted of terrorism, bolstering the administration's immigration ban.  According to a report out Saturday [2/11/2017], at least 17 claimed to be refugees from those nations, three came in as "students," and 25 eventually became U.S. citizens.  The Center for Immigration Studies calculated the numbers of convicted terrorists from the Trump Seven:
    — Somalia: 20
    — Yemen: 19
    — Iraq: 19
    — Syria: 7
    — Iran: 4
    — Libya: 2

The Handmaidens of Hatred.  During times of war between countries, hatred has always had its way to one degree or another.  Many people from the U.S. and other allied countries hated Germany and Japan during WWII.  The converse was true as well.  During the current war against radical Islam, it is clear we are hated, and many of us return that toward the ideas of jihad.  That's not surprising.  What is surprising has been the hatred, and the degree of it, from the left-leaning leaders and citizenry of our own country toward their own domestic political and social opponents.  That's we.  What is hated is quite countable:  Christianity.  Class, wealth, and accomplishment.  Conservatives.  The GOP.  America as founded.  These all have been targets of left-wing hate.

77% of refugees allowed into U.S. since travel reprieve hail from seven suspect countries.  The State Department has more than doubled the rate of refugees from Iraq, Syria and other suspect countries in the week since a federal judge's reprieve, in what analysts said appears to be a push to admit as many people as possible before another court puts the program back on ice.  A staggering 77 percent of the 1,100 refugees let in since Judge James L. Robart's Feb. 3 order have been from the seven suspect countries.  Nearly a third are from Syria alone — a country that President Trump has ordered be banned altogether from the refugee program.  Another 21 percent are from Iraq.  By contrast, in the two weeks before Judge Robart's order, just 9 percent of refugees were from Syria and 6 percent were from Iraq.

Jeh Johnson Hyped Denying Visa-Free Travel to Those Who Visited NYT's '7 Muslim Countries'.  In multiple congressional testimonies last year, then-Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson hyped the action he was taking — under a law signed by President Barack Obama — to deny visa-free travel to the United States to citizens of Visa Waiver Program (VWP) countries who had visited Syria, Sudan, Iraq, Iran, Yemen, Somalia or Libya.  "Foreign terrorist travel, the prospect of foreign terrorist travel to our homeland keeps me up at night," Johnson, for example, testified in the House Homeland Security Committee on July 14, 2014.

Five Reasons The Muslim Brotherhood Is a Terror Group.  [#3] The Muslim Brotherhood Has a Doctrine Of Gradualism:  Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the Muslim Brotherhood's spiritual leader, said when discussing the eventual introduction of the brutal hudud punishments mandated under sharia governance, that they should be introduced gradually when the people were ready.  Of Muslim Brotherhood rule in Egypt he said "there should be no chopping off of hands in the first five years."  This commitment to gradually implementing the full program shows that even Brotherhood affiliates that nominally support more progressive policies may later change to support more hardline stances once in power.

Weeding Out Terrorist Immigrants Isn't Enough.  We often take on faith the notion that any new immigrant community will ultimately become just like the communities that came before.  And, yes, the civilization we've built possesses immense powers of assimilation.  But those powers are not limitless, and for evidence of that fact we need only look at recent terror attacks from immigrants who were radicalized well after they came to the United States.  They didn't come here ready to kill, and even the best screening system couldn't have discovered intentions they didn't possess before they arrived.  Some even came as kids and spent years apparently trying to fit in with the dominant American culture.  But jihadist Islam ultimately gained deeper purchase.

Obama:  Jihadophile.  [Scroll down]  Obama is a jihadophile.  He has made that clear in a thousand different ways during his eight years, enough time to plant agents and suborn U.S. government personnel.  No wonder we couldn't do anything effective to resist jihad; Obama even refused to use the words "Islamic terrorism."  But he is still beloved by a veritable snowpack of campus flakes.  Exposing the real enemy is only the first step in national defense.  Fighting the enemy is a next step, and even today the Democrats and EuroSocialists are self-righteously refusing to do that.

Nine questions those protesting against Donald Trump's immigration ban must answer.  [#2] Do you recognise that Islamic terrorism is not a figment of a fevered imagination, but a real thing that exists and which causes a risk to human life in America and many other countries?

Pelosi Hot Mic: 'Tell Them You're A Muslim'.  House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was caught on a hot mic at a protest Monday night, cynically encouraging congressman Andre Carson of Indiana to remind the crowd he is a Muslim.  "Greetings from the great state of Indiana.  I'm Congressman Andre Carson!" Carson said during Monday's rally.  "Tell them you're a Muslim," Pelosi can be heard saying.  "Tell them you're a Muslim."  [Video clip]

Nancy Pelosi Caught on HOT MIC Promoting Muslims.  Muslim is the new "black," at least when it comes to minorities.  I warned of this confluence of race and religion in my book Sexy Brilliance and Other Political Lies.  I predicted that Muslims would learn the ways of black Leftists, then add the "secret sauce" of religion to ultimately get Leftists to allow Muslims to dominate America.  We know the radical Muslims have made this their strategy for quite some time.  They brag that they won't have to actually fight us with guns.  They won't even have to do what Muslims enjoy most, which is to cut off the heads of Infidels.  No, Muslims simply nuzzle up to Leftists and let the caliphate begin.

Trump's immigration crackdown is a clear message to the Muslim world - get your own houses in order before you come to ours.  Have you noticed?  There has been more outrage from the left over Trump's so-called Muslim ban, than over terror itself.  More gnashing of gums and loud wailing, more placards decrying the plight of a few tourists and travellers, than over the bodies blown apart by Islamic extremists at Brussels airport in March last year.

Protecting America from ill intended refugees.  The Suspect Detection System (SDS) has developed counter-terrorist and insider threat detection technology named COGITO.  This technology enables law enforcement agencies to rapidly investigate U.S. visa applicants (and other travelers) entering the country, insider threats among employees, etc.  COGITO technology is an automated interrogation system that can determine in 5 [to] 7 minutes if an individual is harboring hostile intent.  The system interviews the examinee with up to 36 questions while measuring the psychophysical signals of the human body.  The system has 95% accuracy and has helped security agencies globally to catch terrorists and solve crimes.  According to the company's website, the SDS allows the screening of a large number of people in a short time. [...] Using this system would eliminate the need to use often biased U.S. Consulate employees.

Draft order:  Trump to halt U.S. entry from several Middle Eastern countries.  The document, which has been published by several news outlets and was obtained separately by The Hill, is titled "Protecting the Nation from Terrorist Attacks by Foreign Nationals."  It would suspend entry into the U.S. from select countries starting 30 days after the order is issued.  The countries in question include Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen.  The White House did not immediately respond to questions from The Hill about the document.  But in an interview that aired Wednesday night [1/25/2017], President Trump seemed to confirm the details of the document.  Trump said the policy is not a "Muslim ban."

'Deception employed' to build new Islamic Center.  Concerned residents in a small Northern Virginia community have dug up misleading information in the application by a local Islamic center for a permit that would have cleared the way to build a mosque, and it may be an example of a pattern of deception practiced around the country.

Queen's Chaplain Who Questioned Quran Prayers in Cathedral Steps Down After Attempts to 'Silence, Defenstrate' Him.  Less than a week after one of the Queen's Chaplains spoke out against an Islamic Prayer denying the divinity of Jesus Christ being read out in a Scottish Cathedral, the senior churchman has tendered his resignation from that office.

Muslim Activist at Anti-Trump Rally:  Trump 'Wants the Extermination of Muslims Globally'.  Darakshan Raja, co-founder of the Muslim American Women's Policy Forum and formerly a researcher at the Urban Institute, said at a rally on inauguration day that President Trump "made a lot of Islamophobic comments in his inauguration.  He said he wants the extermination of radical Islam.  What that basically means is he wants the extermination of Muslims globally."  Raja was reacting to President Trump's inaugural address in which he said that he will "unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the Earth."

Islamic terrorism is what Mr. Trump said he wanted to eradicate.  Apparently Ms. Raja can see no disconnection between Muslims and Islamic terrorism.  I can certainly understand.  There are Muslims who are terrorists right now, and there are Muslims who are keeping quiet until the time is right.  If you're a Muslim, and you can't live without "radical" Islam, or Islamic terrorism, you should leave the country.  I hear the doors are wide open in Sweden and Germany.

Islamic Call To Prayer held inside historic British Cathedral.  A ROW has broken out after an Islamic call to prayer was held inside one of Britain's most historic cathedrals.  The traditional Muslim invocation to worship was performed in front of 1,000 people at the launch of a multi-cultural Faith Exhibition at Gloucester Cathedral.  Imam Hassan of the local Masjid-e-Noor mosque was invited by church leaders to carry it out in the cathedral's 11th century Chapter House.  Many worshippers welcomed the "inclusive" act but some traditionalists questioned why a "different god" should be worshipped in such an iconic Christian house.

Top Bishop:  Europe Will Soon Be Muslim Because of Our Stupidity.  Everyone in Italy and the rest of Europe will "soon be Muslim" because of the country's "stupidity", a prominent Italian archbishop has said.  Monsignor Carlo Liberati, Archbishop Emeritus of Pompeii, said that Islam will soon become Europe's main religion thanks to the huge number of Muslim migrants alongside the increasing secularism of native Europeans.

Political Islam Is All of It.  Here is one of Bill Warner's new videos, "Hijra, Islamic Migration".  But it is so much more than that.  With each of his expositions you can learn something new, sometimes with his charts, sometimes just with his ideas, often with his Socratic questions.  [Video clip]

ISIS Present In All 50 States, FBI Director Says.  The ABC7 I-Team looked into ISIS terrorists in the United States- not just a smattering of potentially violent radicals, but terrorists present in Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan and all 50 states.  In less than two years, ISIS has gone from a terror start-up overseas to what FBI Director James Comey calls a "chaotic spider web" in the US, with young Muslim men being radicalized in Illinois and the 49 other states.  Comey suggests ISIS uses social media like a job fair.  That's how he says terrorists snagged three New York men facing ISIS charges.

I have uncovered and compiled evidence of a massive ISIS network spanning all 50 states of the U.S..  This presence varies in its form from state to state.  It exists in the form of smaller cells attached to mosques run by radicalized imams, paramilitary groups operating out of compounds throughout the US, reinforced by veterans and command figures from ISIS' Syria theater and bolstered by recruits from American minority communities.  If all the reports outlined here are in fact found to be true, ISIS has managed to amass a terrifyingly impressive network across the United States that would be capable of wreaking heavy damage in the event of a large-scale terror incident.

Sen. Cruz Continues Leading the Fight Against Radical Islamic Terrorism in the 115th Congress.  U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today reintroduced two bills, alongside Congressman Michael McCaul (R-Texas) and Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Florida) respectively, that will protect Americans from the threat of radical Islamic terror, directing the State Department to hold accountable both the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and the Muslim Brotherhood, two foreign entities that espouse a violent Islamist ideology with a mission of destroying the West.  Both bills require a report on whether these organizations meet the criteria to be designated Foreign Terrorist Organizations, and if so, will enable the U.S. to take action that could stifle the funding they receive to promote their terrorist activities.

Minnesota: Mohamed is Top 5 Baby Name of 2016 at St.  Cloud Hospital.  If there are other variations of the spelling then "Mohamed" could rank even higher.  And that's just one hospital in the Somali Muslim occupied territory.

Church Invites Muslims To Recite Koran And Blaspheme Jesus' Divinity During Services For Epiphany.  Epiphany is one of the important holy days of the Christian year, as it is the celebration of the revelation of God to the world through the coming of the Wise Men.  On this holy day, the Anglican Communion's Church of St. Mary's in Glasgow, Scotland invited a Muslim woman to recite part of the Koran for the service.  If this was not bad enough, the Muslim woman then added several more verses in Arabic that directly blaspheme the divinity of Christ into her "recitation":  [Video clip]

Sharia-compliant Long Beach Police now will allow Muslim women to wear headbags while in custody.  In the wake of a CAIR lawsuit alleging officers forcibly removed a Muslim woman's headbag before booking her into jail, the Long Beach Police Department has changed its policy to let detainees wear Islamic supremacist headbags and other religious items while in custody unless there's a safety concern.

How Can Any Western Country Get Caught Off Guard By Terrorism?  The Daily Mail reports, "He was put on a danger list shortly after arriving in Germany in June last year, which meant authorities considered him prone to extreme violence.  Yet just how much surveillance he was under remains unclear."  Wait, somebody can be on a "danger list, prone to extreme violence" and not under surveillance?

My Line.  So, now I will give you my line in the sand.  When I am faced with the prospect of defending my wife and daughter from the clutches of Islam or the "refugees" sent here to carry out the same deeds as they are perpetrating in Europe, I will not wait for the politically correct police to do my work. [...] Our police have waited for attacks to be launched before rooting out violent illegal aliens and have tolerated "no go" zones in Michigan and Minnesota.  They have allowed camps to be established where jihadists wait for their signal to wage war on America, on the citizens of the nation.  Nothing in the recent history of this nation leads me to believe that the police, or the politicians behind them will allow the necessary purge of these undesirables, these enemy fighters among us and it will be left to us and our oaths.  I will view it as my duty.

Islam Is the Problem.  "Islam is not the problem," proclaims the Left.  And if you say otherwise, you're a "racist," even though "Muslim" is not a race.  Yet a fact remains:  virtually all the world's terrorists today claim Islamic motivations. [...] Then there are other explanations for Muslim violence, all of which amount to Islamsplainin'.  Poverty is one, but the Muslim world is not uniquely poor.  There are many millions of poor Catholics in South America, Africa and elsewhere; and hundreds of millions of poor Hindus in India.  Yet they aren't committing terrorist acts.  And Osama bin Laden was worth $125 million.

Erdogan as a deity
Muslims Are Already Worshipping Erdogan.  Is Erdogan The Antichrist?  Does He Fit All The Scriptural Proofs?  Is this man, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, the Antichrist, who will demand worship in the Temple of God?  Heck, Erdoğan is already accepting to be worshipped.  But people still insist asking me:  is he the Antichrist?  Well, what we do know is that Turkey will produce the Antichrist.  If you object, please answer the Jesus-style questions that no biblical scholar can answer, unless of course, they admit Turkey is the land of Antichrist.


ISIS: "Holy war is an integral part of Islam".  The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has released a video response to the terrorist attacks in Brussels.  The attacks were carried out in ISIS's name by an independent network of Muslim terrorists.  The video both endorsed their action, and repeated ISIS's frequent call for more of what the ISIS leader calls "volcanoes of jihad."  ISIS's video statement reminded Muslims of the duty of jihad.  "Every Muslim who is well aware of the history of Islam, knows that the holy war against infidels is an integral part of Islam," according to the video.

Trump's National Security Adviser on Radical Islam: 'This Is a World War ... They Are On The March'.  After the radical Islamic terrorist attack in Nice, France, which killed 86 people and wounded 434 people, Lt. Gen. (ret.) Michael T. Flynn, now the National Security Adviser to President-elect Donald J. Trump, said he was "done" with trying to convince President Obama "to actually define this enemy" and added that the enemy is "radical Islamic terrorism," it is "on the march," and "this is a world war."

Michigan: Dearbornistan elects first Arab Muslim to state House.  As towns and cities become Muslim-majority, they will begin taking over, like they did in Hamtramck, Michigan.

Historic win for Abdullah Hammoud sets stage for challenges in state House.  Sealing his promise to Dearborn voters, Abdullah Hammoud, the Democratic candidate for the 15th District in the State House of Representatives, became the first Arab American Muslim man to win that seat.  An aura of unease and suspense set in Tuesday night [11/22/2016], as Arab American voters, poll volunteers and campaigners closely examined maps in anticipation of the presidential election results.

Factual Persuasion.  The first book ever written about how to use the facts of Islam in persuasion and argument. [...] Since 9/11 these methods have been used to change the minds of supporters of Islam from all political backgrounds.  Anyone, whether they are liberals, progressives, leftists or conservatives, can all be persuaded to see the truth in light of the facts about Islam.

Minneapolis Elects First Somali-American Legislator.  A Minnesota woman was elected to that statehouse Tuesday as the first Somali-American legislator in the United States.  Ilhan Omar of Minneapolis — a policy analyst who most recently served as the director of policy initiatives at Women Organizing Women, which encourages women's civic leadership in East Africa — essentially ran unopposed after the GOP candidate for the District 60B seat suspended his campaign.

In This War Minnesota's Twin Cities Are Lost.  Minnesota is home to the largest Somali population in America.  It is estimated that over 125,000 Somalis live there, most of whom are in the Minneapolis area.  This community sent at least 22 Islamic jihadi fighters overseas to fight for the terrorist group Al Shabaab, although some estimate the number is closer to four dozen.  The Cedar Riverside neighborhood is also called "Little Mogadishu" in reference to Somalia's capital.  Some Minneapolis residents feel parts of their city have become like a third world nation.  Inside a 10 mile radius of Minneapolis city-center, there are at least 29 Islamic Centers/mosques, and an unknown number of home-mosques.  The Twin Cities area is home to Hamas organizations including CAIR and Islamic Associations.  The Muslim Brotherhood's Muslim Students Associations (MSAs) are on at least 21 Minnesota college and university campuses.

Gen. Boykin:  Radical Muslims Plan 'To Infiltrate Every Element of Our Society, Including the Church'.  During a discussion about radical Islam and how its followers seek to damage the United States, Lt. Gen. (ret.) William G. "Jerry" Boykin, former head of Special Operations Command, noted the jihadist document "Explanatory Memorandum," which was uncovered in 2004, and said the radical Islamists plan to "infiltrate every element of our society, including the church."  "It's a five-phase plan to take over America," said Boykin at the Breaking the Silence conference in August in Colorado Springs.

86% of American Muslims plan to cast their vote — it will not be for Trump.  A nationwide survey of American Muslims shows that 86 per cent plan to cast their vote on 8 November, and the majority are planning to turn away from Donald Trump.  According to the survey of more than 800 Muslims, carried out between 7 September and 5 October, only 12 percent are undecided voters.  A clear majority — 72 percent — said they will support Hillary Clinton.  "Our survey results indicate that presidential candidates still have time to appeal to American Muslim voters by addressing issues such as the erosion of civil rights and growing Islamophobia," said Robert McCaw, government affairs director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.  CAIR carried out the survey.

UK: Muslim bus driver put children's lives at risk by stopping on busy road for prayer.  Said one of the children's mothers:  "He was putting children's lives at risk.  At the end of the day he has a duty of care.  This isn't about his religion — he simply shouldn't have done it."  Watch her to be denounced forthwith as a racist, bigoted "Islamophobe."  One does not denounce Britain's new masters.  Avoiding the appearance of "racism" is Britain's paramount contemporary value.  Britain is finished.

U.S. Cardinal:  Islam Desires World Conquest — and We're "Easy Prey".  "We have 50 million Muslims in Europe.  There are signs that Allah will grant Islam victory in Europe — without swords, without guns, without conquest — will turn it into a Muslim continent within a few decades," said late Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi in 2006.  Virtually all Western politicians and prelates have refused to accept such pronouncements at face value, though, and instead strike politically correct tones.  But this isn't because they perceive the truth, says a top American cardinal, but because they're too weak to accept it.  "Muslims have as their ultimate goal conquest and power over the world," said Cardinal Raymond Burke in an interview with Italian newspaper Il Giornale.  In the interview, just reported by news outlet Breitbart on Saturday [10/8/2016], Burke also warned that the West's "supine" stance and moral corruption have made it "easy prey for conquest."

"Post-racial" President Obama to Create New Racial Category.  As if the irony of Barack Obama having been dubbed the first "post-racial president" wasn't thick enough, now the Obama administration wants to create a new racial category -- for people from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).  Just as with "Hispanic," "Arab" and "Persian," the two terms describing most Middle Easterners, refer not to races but ethnicities.  But now the feds want to change this in what USA Today describes as "the biggest realignment of federal racial definitions in decades."  The new category would include Israeli Jews and Coptic Christians as well and would appear on 2020 census forms. [...] Virtually all the people in this new "racial category" would be Muslims, who traditionally had been less than one percent of the U.S. population.  But with more Muslims having been admitted to our nation since 9/11 than during all our history prior to it, this bloc is growing.

'Jumbo supermarkets are Islamising' Shopping giant under fire for banned Father Christmas.  A supermarket has sparked anger for banning images of Father Christmas at the same time as it launched items celebrating an Islamic feast day.  The 'Jumbo' chain has revealed it will no longer allow any images of Saint Nicholas on packages of traditional festival candies and delicacies of its own brand.  The crackdown surrounds the December 5 Dutch tradition of giving children presents and sweets.  Outspoken leader of the far-right Party for Freedom in the Netherlands, Geert Wilders blasted the chain saying they had "completely lost their mind".

Muslim Society Serves Breakfast to Hundreds of Philly Cops.  Philadelphia Police and Muslim American Society leaders feel like the breakfast is especially significant this year given recent events like police shootings and mass shootings.  Both groups feel like they have a shared experience — they both know what it's like when society makes negative assumptions about police officers or Muslims. Mosque leaders said they feel it's important to continually reinforce to the broader community that they are good people doing good things in Philadelphia.

Philadelphia Police Officers Served Breakfast by Terror-listed Muslim Group.  Not a Muslim woman nor a Muslim smile anywhere in site. [...] Are these police officers aware that MAS is a Muslim Brotherhood entity, listed as a terrorist group in the UAE, with leaders who espouse jihad?

Census: Record 42.4M immigrants, 23% of school kids, Muslims biggest jump.  At 42.4 million, there are now more immigrants, legal and illegal, in America than ever before, fueled by a massive flood from Muslim nations, and the growing numbers are substantially impacting public services like public schools, according to a weighty new analysis of Census Bureau data.  One impact of note:  There are 10.9 million students from immigrant households in public schools, accounting for 23 percent of all public school students, according to the Center for Immigration Studies.

Ban of Muslims and Others Already U.S. Law: 8 U.S. Code 1182.  This law was written in 1952.  It was passed by a Democrat-controlled Congress, House and Senate, and signed by a Democrat president.  "Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by president.  Whenever the president finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, the president may, by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate."

The 8 Things I Keep Hearing From Muslims.  As a Muslim Reformer, I get to hear from a patchwork of Muslims, especially in response to the more challenging public statements I make. [...] And because I never can get to all of you — as much as I would love to have a dialogue with each and every person — I'm responding to the top 8 most common questions and comments I get to hear.

Japan: No Muslims, no terrorists.  There is a simple reason we never read about jihadi attacks in Japan.  There are no Muslims there.  No Muslims, no terrorists.  This is a significant data point in the public debate over Muslim immigration.  Donald Trump, of course, has famously proposed a suspension of Islamic immigration until we can figure out a way to screen out jihadis, and Franklin Graham is backing that suggestion to the hilt.

Canada discovers its first Muslim refugee to become a cabinet member faked her background.  [Scroll down]  Canada's leadership only learned that their "Minister of Democratic Institutions" was born in the Islamofascist authoritarian nation of Iran through reporting in a national newspaper nearly one year after [Maryam] Monsef's appointment. [...] At present, no national security investigations appear to have been publicly released on her and her family's past, meaning that it is apparently unverified — potentially even unverifiable.

Call to ban Muslim women wearing hijab on passport photos.  Walter Wobmann, an MP in Switzerland, said allowing photographs of women wearing headscarves on travel documents was "unequal treatment" and "unacceptable."  Mr Wobmann, who is well-known for his anti-immigration stance, said the policy was unjust because caps, headbands and other headwear are not allowed on passport photos.  The right-wing MP for the populist Swiss People's Party told Blick newspaper:  "It is unacceptable that you can wear a hijab in a photo but not a cap.

Turkey Built Almost 9,000 Mosques During Past Decade.  Turkey's Religious Affairs Directorate, also known as the Diyanet, reports that 8,985 new mosques have been built during the past ten years, with the Central Anatolian province of Konya containing 3,134 of them.  The northern province of Samsun received the second-highest number of new mosques at 2,610, while the Black Sea province of Kastamonu came in third with 2,610 mosques, according to a report by Hurriyet Daily News.  Turkey's capital of Ankara saw more than 2,000 new mosques constructed between 2005 and 2015.

Admit it, Muslims, it isn't "Islamophobia" when you continuously are trying to destroy Western civilization.  But it is anti-Muslim backlash, which is growing in accordance with the rising number of Muslim terrorist attacks in America and the West, forced Islamization of our schools, and incessant Muslim demands for accommodation of their anti-social, anti-American religious demands.

Police force mocked over plans to let Muslim officers wear full BURKAS to attract more 'ethnic female minority officers'.  One of the largest police force's in the UK was today [9/9/2016] mocked after saying it would consider letting Muslim officers wear burkas in an attempt to boost diversity.  West Midlands Police said it will discuss allowing the traditional Islamic dress — which covers the entirety of a woman's face and body — to become part of Muslim female officers' uniform.  At a recent meeting, Chief Constable David Thompson, said he would consider employing staff who wear a burka as he looks to increase black and minority ethnic (BME) officers in the region to 30 percent.

Half of world's Muslims are inbred due to generations of incest.  Here's an explanation for Islamic terrorism that's never proffered:  Insanity and Stupidity.  A never-spoken-about problem with Muslims is their inbreeding as a result of their long and deeply-ingrained practice of marrying first cousins — a practice that has been prohibited in the Judeo-Christian tradition since the days of Moses.  More than 7 years ago, the UK's environment minister Phil Woolas had sounded the alarm about this "very sensitive" issue that is "rarely debated".  Referring to the culture of arranged marriages between cousins in the Muslim immigrant community, Woolas said:  "If you have a child with your cousin the likelihood is there'll be a genetic problem."  Woolas, whose views are supported by medical experts, said most cases occur in immigrant families from rural Pakistan, where up to half of all marriages involve first cousins.

Are you ready for Rohingya Muslims and their 'cultural' differences?  In Australia a Rohingya refugee was sentenced to five years in prison for raping a ten year old boy.  The convicted Muslim man said it was culturally acceptable to rape children where he came from in Burma (aka Myanmar). [...] O.K. and now you are saying, well that is in Australia.  But, what about America?  They are here by the thousands already!  When Esar Met a Muslim from Burma raped and murdered a Christian Burmese child in Salt Lake City, Utah in 2008 there was defining silence from any media outside of Utah!

ACLU Using Religious Freedom Act It Opposed to Defend Muslim Prisoner.  Melody Wood told PJM the ACLU's use of Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act on behalf of a Muslim jail prisoner who doesn't want to eat pork is a classic case of the civil rights organization's hypocrisy.  "I would say the ACLU has the right to use RFRA to defend the religious beliefs of this American," said Wood, a research assistant at the DeVos Center for Religion and Civil Society at the Heritage Foundation.  "But it should also recognize that RFRA should protect all religious beliefs, including beliefs regarding marriage and sexuality."  The ACLU has rallied to the side of Gannon Thomas, a practicing Muslim at the Boone County Jail in Indiana.

Muslim Population in Latin America Grows 25% Amid Radicalization Concerns.  Islam had an estimated 3 million adherents in Latin America and the Caribbean as of the end of last year, marking an increase of nearly 25 percent from the 2.3 million who were residing there in 2010, a Breitbart News analysis of U.S. Department of State (DoS) data shows.  Among the Muslims in the region are people who emigrated from Muslim majority countries — including Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Egypt, and Pakistan — and locals who converted.  Most of them are recent migrants and descendants of those who made the journey years and even generations ago, namely Palestinians, among others.

Hijabs now part of the official uniform of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.  Muslim women serving with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, RCMP, have been given dispensation to wear a hijab while on duty.  The change is meant encourage diversity in the ranks of the so-called Mounties, who normally don a uniform that dates all the way back to the 1800s and includes a felt Stetson hat, the government said.  The outfit, which easily distinguishes the Mounties from other types of police officer and is regarded affectionately by many Canadians as a symbol of patriotic identity along with the maple leaf on the national flag, also includes leather riding boots and red serge tunics.  While the Mounties themselves were informed of the new policy at the start of this year, it was only formally unveiled by the Ottawa government this week.

Police Scotland approves hijab as official uniform to boost number of Muslim women joining force.  Police Scotland has announced that the hijab will become part of its official uniform as it aims to create a more diverse force.  The force said they hope the move will "encourage women from Muslim communities, who may previously not have seen policing as a career option, to reconsider".  In the past, Muslim police officers in Scotland were allowed to wear the hijab, but only once it was approved by senior staff members.

Update:
Hijab police uniforms were politically correct publicity stunts; no demand from Muslim officers.  Earlier this year I shared with you exclusive documents from the RCMP regarding its rollout of the official uniform hijab, showing that the final product was rushed after all prototypes failed testing.  We also looked into other police departments that have taken similar action, and found that political correctness rather than officer need has been the driving force.

Of Course There Should Be an Ideological Test in Immigration.  Imagine an American government official, interviewing an alien seeking admission to our country from, say, Syria:  U.S. official:  "Will you support the United States Constitution?" Syrian alien:  "Well, sure, except that I believe the government should be overseen by a caliph, who must be Muslim and male, and who must rule in accordance with Islamic law, which no man-made law may contradict.  None of this 'We the People' stuff; Allah is the sovereign.  Non-Muslims should not be required to convert to Islam, of course, but they must submit to the authority of Islamic law — which requires them to live in the second-class status of dhimmitude and to pay a poll tax for that privilege."

Muslim train driver in Paddington crash had gone without food for 15 hours for Ramadan.  The accident, which occurred on June 16, was caused when the driver passed a red signal before coming off the track and hitting a mast — resulting in the station's closure and rail chaos across London.  Investigators are now probing whether the accident occurred because the driver was undergoing a Ramadan fast and had not eaten in the 15 hours before the crash.

'As American as Apple Pie': Harvard Professor Defends Trump's 'Extreme Vetting'.  A Harvard professor is defending Donald Trump's plan for "extreme vetting" of immigrants in the face of an outcry from the left.  Writing in Politico Magazine, George J. Borjas, a labor economist who teaches at Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government, noted that one columnist called the proposed "ideological" screening "crazier than crazy" while an MSNBC commentator slammed it as "the single most un-American thing I have ever heard in my life."  But Borjas pointed out that what Trump is calling for has a long history in the U.S., referring to it as being "as American as apple pie."

'Italian Revolution' Outrage at plans for mosque next to the Leaning Tower of Pisa.  Hundreds of people have signed a petition against the construction of a mosque near the Tower of Pisa meaning a referendum will decide whether the religious building will be built.  Yesterday [8/17/2016], 1,800 signatures were collected against the Islamic place of worship — the number needed for a vote to take place.  Italian journalist and politician Magdi Allam called the referendum "the Italian revolution" and he said Pisans did not expect to get 1,800 signatures.

When Teddy Roosevelt Banned Muslims from America.  The Immigration Act of 1891 had merely banned polygamists.  The newest law banned anyone who believed in the practice of polygamy.  That group included every faithful believing Muslim.  The Ottoman Empire's representatives argued that their immigrants believed in the practice of polygamy, but wouldn't actually take more than one wife.  This argument echoes the current contention that Muslim immigrants may believe in a Jihad against non-Muslims without actually engaging in terrorism.  That type of argument proved far less convincing to Americans than it does today.

Anjem Choudary, Islamist Activist in Britain, Is Convicted of Supporting ISIS.  One of Britain's best-known Islamist activists has been found guilty of inviting support for the Islamic State and could face a prison term of up to 10 years, officials announced on Tuesday [8/16/2016].  The activist, Anjem Choudary, 49, and an associate, Mohammed Mizanur Rahman, 33, were convicted of using online lectures and messages to encourage support for the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, which is banned in Britain.  In social media posts, the two men pledged allegiance to the caliphate declared by the head of the Islamic State, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, and said that Muslims had a duty to obey and support him.

How Anjem Choudary's mouth was finally shut.  For 20 years Anjem Choudary stood on street corners, in shopping precincts, outside mosques, embassies and police stations and used his megaphone to drive a wedge between Muslims and the rest of Britain.  Now he has been convicted of inviting others to support the Islamic State militant group.  The scenes would change -- but not the words.  The flag of Islam will fly over Downing Street, was his favourite prediction, followed by some kind of rhetorical flourish.  "The Muslims are rising to establish the Sharia... Pakistan, Afghanistan and perhaps, my dear Muslims, Londonistan."  He would greet the journalists with a smile, and some guile, dressed up as charm.

The Paradox of the Gold Star Left.  [Scroll down]  The simple fact is that Barack Obama is an extreme Islamophile.  He is angered and frustrated by the existence of ISIS because the radical Islamists rampaging throughout the world do not conform to his conception of Islam as a warm puppy.  Although he is quick to condemn the jihadists' perversion of the faith he admires so passionately, one thing he will never do is confront them on an intellectual level.  The jihadists firmly believe that their pure, textually faithful interpretation of the Koran is greatly superior to the watered down versions favored by apologists for Western decadence.  Jihadist clerics eagerly seek opportunities to debate those elusive "moderates," but the suspicion lurks that "moderates" are none too confident about their ability to prevail in a theological disputation.  It must be admitted that those same moderates are not particularly eager to get killed.  Obama, then, can bray about the tiny minority of fanatics who seek to hijack the faith that enriched his youth, but he crashes headlong into the reality that radical Islam is not a tiny fringe of the Muslim world.  Viewed as a historical force, it is large and growing.

Radical Islamist Running For Governor of Massachusetts.  As seen in this video, Charlie Baker takes his oath of office to become Governor of Massachusetts and swears to support the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and the Constitution of the United States among other things.  As reported by the Clarion Project, Tahirah Amatul-Wadud also intends to run for governor of Massachusetts one day.  Unlike Baker, she has radical ties that call into question whether she could honestly uphold those oaths should she take them.  Tahirah is a board member for the Council on American-Islamic Relations Massachusetts (CAIR-MA).  This is the same Muslim Brotherhood affiliated CAIR that has been labeled a terrorist organization by the UAE and also has ties with the terrorist group Hamas.  Even more troubling is Tahirah's involvement with Muslims of the Americas (MOA) or The Muslims of America, Inc. (TMOA).

Islamic State Targeting U.S. Air Bases In Mideast, Claim Israeli Hackers.  The Islamic State plans to attack U.S. bases in Kuwait, Bahrain, and Saudi Arabia, an Israeli cyber-intelligence company that claims to have hacked the terror group's communications warned on Wednesday [8/3/2016].  Intsights, an intelligence company run by former IDF intelligence officers, hacked into the Islamic State's account on Telegram, an encrypted messaging platform on the dark web.  The organization uses the platform to disseminate targets and terror attack plans to its 500 leading operatives, the Times of Israel reported, citing Israel's Channel 10.

The Backward Pull of Islamic Health Practices.  As the West advances civilization with medical research that results in better health and longer life spans, Islamic health norms pull civilization backwards.  And as the Muslim population in the West rises, the health implications are profound.  Let's start with what is likely the greatest blow to human development:  inbreeding.  Muslims do a lot of it.  In fact half of the world's Muslims (about a billion of them) are inbred.  And many of those are the product of generation after generation of inbreeding, which further compounds the genetic impact. [...] With the introduction of inbreeding among the populace, we're confronting an increase in the number of people who have an array of physical, mental, and psychological deficits that significantly reduce their ability to be productive members of society.  In their home country (please stay home!), 70% of Pakistani marriages are between first cousins.

No, the Constitution Does Not Bar 'Religious Tests' in Immigration Law.  Of all the ignorant pronouncements in the 2016 presidential campaign, the dumbest may be that the Constitution forbids a "religious test" in the vetting of immigrants.  Monotonously repeated in political speeches and talking-head blather, this claim is heedless of the Islamic doctrinal roots on which foreign-born Islamists and the jihadists they breed base their anti-Americanism.  It is also dead wrong.  The clause said to be the source of this drivel is found in Article VI.  As you'll no doubt be shocked to learn, it has utterly nothing to do with immigration.

Prof. John Banzhaf: 'Virtually All Constitutional Scholars Agree' Muslim Immigration Ban Would Be Legal.  George Washington University Law School Professor John Banzhaf was a guest on Tuesday's [8/2/2016] Breitbart News Daily, where he discussed the constitutionality of Donald Trump's proposed ban on Muslim immigration with SiriusXM host Stephen K. Bannon.  Bannon asked if Democratic National Convention speaker Khizr Khan was correct to assert that Trump's idea violated the Constitution, a point he made by waving a pocket copy of the document and asking if Trump has ever read it.  Banzhaf said it was the view of "virtually all constitutional professors who have written on the topic" that Khan was wrong.

Gingrich on Radical Islam: 'I Am Against Waiting Until We Get Killed'.  Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, a Republican, said he is "against waiting until we get killed" to defeat the Islamic State in the wake of the Normandy church priest killing.  "The French government knew that the priest was targeted.  The French knew that the two guys who killed him were dangerous, and they did nothing," Gingrich told CNSNews.com after a speech at the Young America's Foundation's National Conservative Student Conference in Washington, D.C. on July 27.

Stop Lone Wolf Terrorism by Ending Muslim Immigration.  Lone wolf terrorism is the biggest trend in Islamic terrorism.  Unlike classic Islamic terrorism, it requires no cells stretching across countries the way that 9/11 did.  The perpetrators don't even need to enter the country under false pretenses the way that the World Trade Center bombers did.  In many cases, they are already citizens.  Some were even born in their target country.  Classic counterterrorism is directed at organizations.  It's inadequate for stopping individual Muslim terrorists like Omar Mateen who was able to murder 49 people at a nightclub in Orlando or closely related duos like the Tsarnaev brothers in Boston or the husband and wife team who carried out the San Bernardino terrorist attack which took the lives of 14 people.

Terrorism hits tourism as visitors stay away from London, Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam and Istanbul in fear of new attacks.  A string of terror attacks across Europe has seen tourism numbers drop across the continent despite it being the height of the summer season.  Hotel chains, airlines, tour operators and even some luxury retailers have been reporting a downturn in business since a spate of attacks in countries such as France, Germany and Belgium.  And now major cities such as London, Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam and Istanbul have all seen a downturn in hotel bookings as visitors fear new attacks.

The Battle against Islamism Has Not Yet Started.  [Scroll down]  Islamist ideology breeds Islamist violence, which starts the process and in turn inspires anti-Islamic sentiments.  Anti-Islamic views might also inspire more Islamist violence, but that is incidental.  The real dynamic here is Islamism creating anti-Islam parties.  As Norbert Hofer has shown in Austria, they are approaching 50 percent of the vote and with it, political power.

Unhappy Clifton mosque neighbors.  A new Richfield mosque's leadership shot back at fierce critics who claimed its burgeoning congregation created parking and quality of life issues during the month-long Muslim celebration of Ramadan.  The Islamic Center of Passaic County (ICPC) held its grand opening on June 3 at 259 Pershing Road, the former home of the Richfield Christian Reformed Church.  In the weeks which followed, incensed residents complained that worshipers tied up nearby residential streets, blocked driveways and, on one occasion, parked in front of a fire hydrant.

Creeping Sharia in Health Care.  As the Muslim population in a society increases, expressions of Islamic supremacy become more and more aggressive.  How it manifests in health care settings is just one of many ways in which the West is slowly and steadily being taken down by those who embrace an ideology that mandates nothing less than world domination.

President Obama Allows 400,000 Migrants From Central America Since 2012.  President Barack Obama has allowed some 400,000 unskilled Central American migrants to pour into the nation's schools, job-markets, welfare offices, hospitals and jails since 2012, according to government data.  By the end of June, he had cleared the path for 214,982 "unaccompanied" youths plus 181,456 women and children to come in to the country since October 2012.  That adds up to 396,428 migrants — with three months to go before the end of the 2016 fiscal year in October.

Blackout: Major French media outlets stop publishing names, photos of Islamic terrorists.  Major French media outlets will try a new strategy to curb terrorism in Europe:  a news blackout of names and photos of attackers.  A slew of Islamic terror attacks in France since January 2015 have prompted news organizations to refrain from publishing information that might offer "posthumous glorification" to deceased terrorists.  "The sites and newspapers that produce this information cannot excuse themselves from self-examination on several fronts.  Since ISIS terrorism first appeared, Le Monde has changed its practices several times," the newspaper said in an editorial published Wednesday [7/27/2016].

Jihadist savages plan 'total victory' by 2020 ... and they're right on track.  Daily now, jihadist savages are butchering non-believers throughout the West.  Priests are being beheaded.  Gays are being gunned down.  Revelers are being run over.  The "drip-drip" nature of the jihadist's Long War is beginning to intensify into a steady stream of chaos and violence that seeks to corrode our morale until we willingly submit.  Like a cancer, Islamic supremacism grows in the Western body politic.  Some of its supporters believed that in America the cancer metastasized to a point that we could no longer eradicate it — as of more than a decade ago.  Also during such time, we were warned of a coming caliphate, and that 2016 would mark the beginning of a period of "total confrontation" from the global jihad, a warning we have apparently ignored.

Saudi government funded jihad teaching in US mosques.  Four separate studies since 1999 all found that 80% of U.S. mosques were teaching jihad, Islamic supremacism, and hatred and contempt for Jews and Christians.  There are no countervailing studies that challenge these results.  In 1998, Sheikh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani, a Sufi leader, visited 114 mosques in the United States.  Then he gave testimony before a State Department Open Forum in January 1999, and asserted that 80% of American mosques taught the "extremist ideology."  Then there was the Center for Religious Freedom's 2005 study, and the Mapping Sharia Project's 2008 study.  Each independently showed that upwards of 80% of mosques in America were preaching hatred of Jews and Christians and the necessity ultimately to impose Islamic rule.

How to Fight Terrorism.  [T]errorism has been around for quite some time.  When it was directed against Israel, no one much cared.  In fact, many serious Western thinkers — especially on the left — tended to believe that the Israelis had brought it on themselves.  Before BDS, leftists gave their seal of approval to terrorism as a tactic.  If they did not understand that Israel was merely a proxy for Western civilization, they should now.  When terrorism was directed by Iran, no one much cared either.  After all, the ayatollahs took power in Iran with the blessing of Pres.  Jimmy Carter.  In the Democratic playbook, if you can't blame it on a Republican, it's not a problem.  And yet, once the Iranians showed that terrorism could work, other branches of Islam got into the business.

Muslims and Islam:  Key findings in the U.S. and around the world.  According to our best estimate, Muslims make up just less than 1% of the U.S. adult population.  Pew Research Center's 2014 Religious Landscape Study (conducted in English and Spanish) found that 0.9% of U.S. adults identify as Muslims.  A 2011 survey of Muslim Americans, which was conducted in English as well as Arabic, Farsi and Urdu, estimated that there were 1.8 million Muslim adults (and 2.75 million Muslims of all ages) in the country.  That survey also found that a majority of U.S. Muslims (63%) are immigrants.  Our demographic projections estimate that Muslims will make up 2.1% of the U.S. population by the year 2050, surpassing people who identify as Jewish on the basis of religion as the second-largest faith group in the country (not including people who say they have no religion).  A recent Pew Research Center report estimated that the Muslim share of immigrants granted permanent residency status (green cards) increased from about 5% in 1992 to roughly 10% in 2012, representing about 100,000 immigrants in that year.  There are two major factors behind the rapid projected growth of Islam, and both involve simple demographics.  For one, Muslims have more children than members of other religious groups.  Around the world, each Muslim woman has an average of 3.1 children, compared with 2.3 for all other groups combined.

Lone Wolf Terrorism is Caused by Muslim Immigration.  Lone wolf terrorism is the biggest trend in Islamic terrorism.  Unlike classic Islamic terrorism, it requires no cells stretching across countries the way that 9/11 did.  The perpetrators don't even need to enter the country under false pretenses the way that the World Trade Center bombers did.  In many cases, they are already citizens.  Some were even born in their target country.  Classic counterterrorism is directed at organizations.  It's inadequate for stopping individual Muslim terrorists like Omar Mateen who was able to murder 49 people at a nightclub in Orlando or closely related duos like the Tsarnaev brothers in Boston or the husband and wife team who carried out the San Bernardino terrorist attack which took the lives of 14 people.  Even the standard technique of planting informants into mosques, deeply opposed by the Islamic lobby in the United States, fails when individuals decide to act alone or only trust their wives or brothers to be in on the plot with them.  If an individual Islamic terrorist fails to let his plans slip, either online or to an FBI informant, stopping him can be extremely difficult if not entirely impossible without a stroke of luck.

Ohio: Hotel Clerk Saw Something, Said Something, Got Fired, May Be Arrested.  Three weeks before the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, a Muslim man in traditional attire asked multiple questions about booking a hotel for a month and refused to leave the hotel despite learning that it was booked for the time he wanted.  A hotel clerk, disturbed by his actions, asked her family to call 911.  The police responded immediately, because the clerk's sister said the man had mentioned the Islamic State (ISIS).  The clerk was fired in less than a week, and now the police may charge her, thus setting a dangerous precedent that if you point out a potential threat, you yourself will land in jail.  This is not to say that the man himself was a threat, but the circumstances were suspicious and the hotel clerk has arguably been mistreated in this case, with a chilling effect on the idea that "if you see something, say something."

The Counter-Coup Begins:  Erdogan Purges 2,745 Judges, Prosecutors; Arrests Hundreds.  When we described the aftermath of Turkey's failed, and painfully disorganized military coup attempt, we asked rhetorically, "Who wins?"  To which we answered:  "Why Erdogan of course.  As he said during a press conference upon his arrival back in Istanbul in the early Saturday morning [7/16/2016] hours, the coup is an opportunity to "to purge the military."  Erdogan also vowed to exact "the highest price" from the perpetrators.  Or, to summarize, the military said Erdogan's power consolidation justifies the attempted coup; Erdogan said the coup justifies further consolidation of power."

Turkey's last hope dies.  Friday night's failed coup was Turkey's last hope to stop the Islamization of its government and the degradation of its society.  Reflexively, Western leaders rushed to condemn a coup attempt they refused to understand.  Their reward will be a toxic Islamist regime at the gates of Europe.  Our leaders no longer do their basic homework.  The media relies on experts-by-Wikipedia.  Except for PC platitudes, our schools ignore the world beyond our shores.  Deluged with unreliable information, citizens succumb to the new superstitions of the digital age.  So a great country is destroyed by Islamist hardliners before our eyes — and our president praises its "democracy."

Obama and Kerry:  All Should Support Erdogan's Government.  A member of the Senate Intelligence Committee told CNN that the coup attempt in Turkey "came out of the blue" as the White House said the Islamist ruler of the country should be supported.

Where Are the Peaceful Muslims?  [Scroll down]  Peaceful Muslims:  Being born human comes with a precious gift:  the gift to think and decide for yourself.  Islam has robbed you of this gift from birth.  Parents, aided by relatives and brainwashed by slaveholder imams and mullahs, colluded and did the thinking for you when you were still in no position to exercise your right.  They branded you as Muslim, simply because you were born in a Muslim family.  Cattle are branded, not humans.  Cattle are owned by others.  Humans are not.  Having branded you "Muslim," those who robbed you of your gift of self-determination dared you to leave their bondage under the threat of death as an apostate. [...] You know full well that it is Islam's dysfunctional doctrine with its stone-age rule of sharia that is responsible for the abominable conditions of Islamic countries.

Muslim Profiling Isn't Illegal Unconstitutional, or Un-American.  Current federal law [Title 8, Section 1182 of the U.S. Code, the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952] gives the President legal authority to suspend — by a simple proclamation, and without any action by Congress — the entry of "any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States [who] would be detrimental to the interests of the United States," and to do so indefinitely.  President Obama has in fact already used this power.  This existing statutory grant of authority to the President, and to those to whom he may delegate this power, is very broad, and a very recent Supreme Court decision held that he could withhold visas on national security grounds without providing any reason at all.  Thus, even without any action by Congress to give him additional authority, it is likely that the President could at least temporarily ban immigrants who are Muslim.  If Congress were to back this proposal by enacting specific legislation to carry it out, the case for its legality would be even stronger.  And there is clear precedent.  Indeed, over a period of more than 100 years, Congress has repeatedly limited immigration by many different groups of people seeking admission.

USA: Where the street signs have changed to Arabic.  How would you feel if you drove into a town here in the United States and found that many of the street signs were in Arabic only with no English wording?  Then you look around and discover that many of the signs on businesses were also in Arabic.  Not possible you say?  Think again!  Welcome to Dearborn, Michigan.

It's not Personal, It's Islam.  A widely-publicised Iftar dinner, intended to show that Malcolm Turnbull gets what it means to be inclusive, ended badly after he was advised that one of his guests, Sheikh Shady Alsuleiman, had taught that Islam prescribes death for adulterers, and homosexuals spread diseases.  No rogue maverick, Australian-born Alsuleiman is the elected national president of the Australian National Imams Council.  Although insisting that "mutual respect is absolutely critical," Turnbull subjected this prominent Muslim leader to public humiliation.  He regretted inviting him to dinner and counselled the sheikh "to reflect on what he has said and recant."  In the middle of an election, wanting to limit fallout from the dinner-gone-wrong, held only days after the Orlando massacre, Turnbull stated that his no-longer-welcome guest's views are "wrong, unacceptable, and I condemn them."  Well, Mr. Turnbull may deplore Alsuleiman's teachings, but the real challenge is that these were not merely his personal views.  The sheikh's teachings on homosexuality and adultery reflect the mainstream position of Islam, preached by many a Muslim scholar around the world today.  Telling a sheikh to reject the sharia is like telling a pope to get over the virgin birth.

De Blasio's wife dons hijab as Muslims take over Brooklyn park.  Imam de Blasio panders to Muslims and lists his Islamic achievements and his wife submits to sharia — in Brooklyn, New York. [...] Notice that the Muslims in attendance barely even acknowledge de Blasio's comments about the Islamic violence around the world and about not tolerating hatred of any community.  Muslims are diametrically opposed to de Blasio's comments and it's not even clear that de Blasio believes his own words.

These 6 Canadian Cities Ban "Islamophobia".  The National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM), formerly the Council on American-Islamic Relations Canada (CAIR-CAN), has the support of political leaders and activists from six Canadian cities (Calgary, Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, Windsor and London) for their Charter for Inclusive Communities.  A charter which aims at combatting the alleged rise in 'Islamophobia' and affirms certain principles, such as:  "Islamophobia, like all other forms of racism, hate, xenophobia, and bigotry, has no place in Canadian society."  When Islamists like NCCM mention 'Islamophobia' they essentially mean any criticism of Islamic beliefs or customs is considered hate.  NCCM is the same group Jason MacDonald, former Director of Communications for Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, accused to having "...documented ties to a terrorist organization such as Hamas."  So much for NCCM representing the interest of 'moderate' Muslims.  Hate crimes against Muslim Canadians did increase from 2012 to 2014; however, the actual number of hate crimes against Muslim Canadians in 2014 is less than half of the total number of hate crimes committed against Jewish Canadians (99 to 213).  Sounds like Canada has a much larger anti-Jewish problem than anti-Muslim problem.

Muslim camps are spreading in the US to help kids 'be proud of who they are'.  It was the last day of Camp Ramadan, and a sea of smiling parents had their arms outstretched, holding up more than a dozen cellphones to capture all of the song and dance and children's humor contained in the end-of-camp assembly.  And onstage, a normally polite and bookish 11-year-old was channeling Donald Trump.  "As a leader, who do you wish to serve?" a child, playing the role of debate interviewer, asked the boy's character — a certain political candidate with the alias of Ronald McDonald.  "I wish to serve my very fantastic self," answered Amir-Abbas, 11, provoking peals of laughter from the parents.  Money, he told the interviewer, is the key to great leadership — and he had lots of it.

Imam Invited To Open Presbyterian Assembly Promptly Denigrates Christians.  The Presbyterian Church (USA) — one of the nation's foremost mainline Protestant churches and the largest Presbyterian body in the country — recently convened in Portland, Oregon, for its 222nd General Assembly.  Its "first order of business" was to commemorate the victims of the Orlando jihad massacre at the Pulse nightclub, as well as those killed last year at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina.  And what better way to do that than to invite a Muslim spokesman to address the assembly?  That's what the Presbyterians thought, anyway — and predictably enough, hilarity ensued.

Muslim On Airplane Starts Screaming "Allahu Akbar" And "BOOM!", Attacking Passengers And Stewardesses, He Gets Only 10 Weeks In Jail.  This was an act of terrorism, no matter how one says it.  The people on that flight had every reason to be afraid. [...] This Muslim knew exactly what he was doing and why he did it.  Terrorism is more than just bombs — it is about striking fear into the hearts of non-Muslims to they acquiesce to Muslim demands.

Islam thrives in communist Cuba.  As Cuban salsa beats pulsate along Obispo Street in the oldest section of this Caribbean capital, bearded men raise their hands to their ears and face east toward Mecca.  They whisper in union "Allahu akbar" ("God is great" in Arabic).  They recite verses of the Koran.  They bend down and place their head, knees and hands on Oriental rugs.  Together, they represent a thriving group of Islamic followers in the most unlikely of places:  communist Cuba.

After Slaughter, Bangladesh Reels at Revelations About Attackers.  The men, all in their late teens or early 20s, were products of Bangladesh's elite, several having attended one of the country's top English-medium private schools as well as universities both in the country and abroad.  Among them was the son of a former city leader in the prime minister's own Awami League, the governing party.  "That's what we're absolutely riveted by," said Kazi Anis Ahmed, a writer and publisher of the daily newspaper The Dhaka Tribune.  "That these kids from very affluent families with no material want can still be turned to this kind of ideology, motivated not just to the point of killing but also want to be killed."

The Editor says...
So much for the excuse that Islamic terrorism is the product of poverty and desperation.

One-hour [compilation] video of how Muslims have slowly but surely been destroying the West.  [Video clip]

Two members of Congress accused of Muslim Brotherhood ties.  Frank Gaffney is a tireless warrior trying to inform the idiot masses on the looming threat before us.  His work, and the work of his colleagues who sound the alarm day in and day out might one day save the lives of those who smear him as an "Islamaphobe" (a fabricated word that has no actual meaning).

Islamist extremists hide huge stockpile of weapons near German mosque.  The weapons arsenal was discovered during a top secret raid by a SWAT team in Nordrhein-Westfalen.  Local politician Ismail Tipi revealed details of the raid and warned of "the danger of fundamentalists".  The weapons were found in a cold room of a greengrocer near a mosque.

One Week After Orlando, Democrats Feature Anti-Gay Imam at Banquet.  On June 19th, the Florida Democratic Party held its annual Leadership Blue Gala event.  US Senator from New Jersey, Cory Booker, was the keynote speaker.  Also listed as speakers were House Democratic Leader-Designate Janet Cruz, Senate Democratic Leader-Designate Oscar Braynon, DNC Chair and Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, US Senator Bill Nelson, and Florida Democratic Chair Allison Tant.  However, one of the other speakers, Maulana Shafayat Mohamed, who partook in opening prayers, should have been the main concern.  Shafayat Mohamed is the imam of the Darul Uloom mosque, located in Pembroke Pines, Florida.  The mosque has been a haven for terror-related individuals, many of whom have been imprisoned — or, in one case, killed in an overseas anti-insurgent raid — due to their jihadist activities.

Anatomy of the terror threat:  Files show hundreds of US plots, refugee connection.  Newly obtained congressional data shows hundreds of terror plots have been stopped in the U.S. since 9/11 — mostly involving foreign-born suspects, including dozens of refugees. [...] While the June 12 massacre at an Orlando gay nightclub marked the deadliest terror attack on U.S. soil since 2001, the data shows America has been facing a steady stream of plots.  For the period September 2001 through 2014, data shows the U.S. successfully prosecuted 580 individuals for terrorism and terror-related cases.  Further, since early 2014, at least 131 individuals were identified as being implicated in terror.

Senate Committee: 580 Terror Convictions in U.S. Since 9/11, 380 Terrorists Are Foreign-Born.  [Scroll down]  This information, when considered in light of four major terror attacks in the United States in roughly the past year, alone — Garland, Texas; Chattanooga, Tennessee; San Bernardino, California; and, Orlando, Florida — makes clear that the United States lacks the ability to properly screen individuals prior to their arrival to the United States.  It further makes clear that our nation has a serious assimilation problem.  Yet, the Obama Administration has not only refused to provide the requested immigration information of these individuals, but it persists in its desire to continue admitting more aliens from many of these high-risk areas of the world, including at least 6,000 more Syrian refugees between now and September 30.

Fighting Islamist Terror after Orlando.  [Scroll down]  Third, we have to get over our hang-up about profiling Muslims.  The jihadists bent on terrorizing us have some obvious commonalities that the political and cultural establishment has continually enjoined us to ignore.  Like it or not, Florida's gay nightclubs are going to be giving that grim-faced Pakistani who shows up at the door a slightly longer pat-down.  France recently subjected Muslim employees at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport to special screening, withdrawing some 60 security passes for "inappropriate behavior" such as refusing to shake hands with female colleagues or praising the perpetrators of last years' terror attacks.  Whether or not it's "fair" to single out Muslims in such sensitive jobs for closer scrutiny, we'd be fools not to.

Sales-talk about the Islamic 'Golden Age'.  It's absolutely ridiculous to claim that Islam — a religion primarily based on the Koran — could have had a hand in the invention of the guitar, algebra, cough syrup syrup, etc.  Which passages in the Koran, or the hadith, etc. helped contribute to the creation of algebra?  Which passages even helped inspire the invention of cough syrup?  Again, this is plain silly!  What [Irshad] Manji must really mean is that people who happened to have been Muslims made these contributions to Western culture.  Islam itself had absolutely nothing to do with it.

Pew Study:  Arabic is the Fastest Growing Language in U.S..  Arabic is the fastest growing language in the U.S., with the number of Arabic speakers growing by 29 percent between 2010 and 2014, according to a recent study by the Pew Research Center.  Over the longer period from 2000 to 2014, the number of Arabic speakers in the U.S. nearly doubled, rising from 615,000 in 2000 to 1.1 million by 2014, according to the study, which analyzed data from the U.S. Census Bureau.  As a result, census questionnaires will be available in Arabic for the first time in 2020, Pew reports.

Prince Charles tells British Muslims 'if you live in our country, abide by our values'.  Prince Charles issued an extraordinary rallying cry today calling on Muslims living in the UK to show more respect for British values.  The heir to the throne railed against the radicalisation of young British men by Islamist extremists as he launched an impassioned defence of Britain's "Christian" heritage.  Telling British muslims that they should show more respect for "the values we hold dear," the Prince revealed that he was terrified by the influence of radical preachers who spread their teachings on the internet.  In an unprecedented outburst, he said:  "The radicalisation of people in Britain is a great worry, and the extent to which this is happening is alarming, particularly in a country like ours where we hold values dear.  "You would think the people who have come here, or are born here, and go to school here, would abide by those values and outlooks."

I wish you the best of luck with that, Chuck.  You're about 20 years too late.  But thanks for showing the rest of the world what happens to a once-civilized country that lets Muslims come in and take over.  If only the rest of us could observe and learn from your country's experience before it's too late.

Amnesty's new communications director wants to restore the caliphate, supports terrorists.  Osama Saeed Bhutta has joined Amnesty International as communications director, after leaving Al Jazeera earlier this year.  Here are some of his qualifications to become a major official at a human rights NGO:  Bhutta supports the idea of a restored caliphate across the Muslim world, claiming that it would be completely compatible with human rights. [...] Let's be clear.  The much-lauded Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam signed in 1990 did not call for freedom of religion, equal rights for women, equal rights for gays, freedom to leave Islam, freedom of expression (it explicitly says there is no right to disparage Islamic prophets,) and so forth.  It is fundamentally opposed to everything Amnesty pretends to stand for.

The enigma of Islam:  The two faces of Muhammad.  American Muslims tell us that Islam is a religion of peace.  Jihadist leaders abroad describe Islam as a religion of war against infidels.  Who is correct?  Both are correct.  If both are correct, does this mean that there are two Muhammads and two Qurans?  Yes, in the sense that Muhammad was like two different persons at two different times and the Quran is like two contradictory books pasted together.  Now that you are thoroughly confused, let us turn to history and to the book Islam and the Bible:  Why two faiths collide (2004), by David Goldmann, veteran missionary to Muslims in Morocco, for the solution to this riddle. [...] According to Mr. Goldmann, Muhammad as ruler of Medina had a strikingly different character than when he was the prophet of Mecca.  The Quranic verses he penned in Mecca often contradict the verses he wrote in Medina.  Let us compare the two Muhammads and the two Qurans. [...]

Islamic Terrorism is Not Domestic Terrorism.  Obama described the massacre carried out by Muslim mass murderer Omar Mateen as "an example of the kind of homegrown extremism that all of us have been concerned about."  But there's nothing "homegrown" about Omar Mateen.  Omar was fighting for a foreign ideology.  He just happened to be born in this country.  Being born in America does not make him a domestic terrorist.  One of our biggest errors in the fight against Islamic terrorism has been to treat it as a domestic terrorism problem.  Islamic terrorism is not domestic terrorism.  Not even when its perpetrators, like Omar Mateen or Nidal Hasan, the Fort Hood killer, are born in the United States.  What distinguishes domestic terrorism from international terrorism is not the perpetrator's place of birth. [...] Islamic terrorists are not seeking domestic political change the way that Bill Ayers was.  They are not domestic elements, but foreign elements.  And yet we treat them as if they were domestic terrorists.

Hillary's Islamophilia.  After the bloodiest mass shooting in American history, Hillary Clinton commented that she is "happy to say" either "radical jihadism or radical Islamism" caused it.  Her use of the phrase "radical jihadism" is curious.  Does a non-radical jihadism exist in her mind?  Perhaps.  After all, her old colleague John Brennan, who is Obama's CIA director, once sought to sanitize the concept of jihad by defining it as a "holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam, meaning to purify oneself or one's community."  Her use of "radical Islamism" instead of "radical Islam" is also telling.  Sticking "ism" at the end of Islam evidently makes it less of a criticism of the religion in her mind.  The apologists for Islam in the George W. Bush administration used to play that game too, calling anything bad in Islamic countries "Islamism," to make it sound as if it was coming not from the Koran and Hadith but from an off-the-wall ideological accretion on an otherwise blameless religion.

Muhammad and Terror.  The saying, "Know your enemy," is attributed to Sun Tzu, the 6th century BC Chinese military strategist and author of The Art of War.  If you don't understand your enemy, but your enemy understands you, you lose.  Islam understands the West, but the West does not understand Islam.  The proof is that the West allows not just immigration from Muslim countries, but massive immigration of people who are committed to bringing about a world dominated by Islam.  That is what Islam aspires to do because that is what Muhammad commanded it to do and showed how to do it by his example, his sunna.  Sun Tzu also said that all warfare is based on deception.  Muhammad knew this and said the same to his followers.  This is the practice as Islam spreads in the West:  Show a friendly smile, insist that Islam is a religion of peace, but lay the groundwork to take over.

Funding terrorism — and the Clintons.  In the wake of Orlando, Hillary Clinton called out Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait for "funding extremist organizations" and "supporting radical schools and mosques all over the world."  What she didn't mention is that all three also fund ... her.  The three countries are all guilty as charged.  And they're not just funders of terrorism:  All three make homosexual acts punishable by prison or even death.  But the Clintons have taken millions of dollars from those same governments through their family foundation.  Which rather tarnishes Clinton's proud post-Orlando vow to the LGBT community that she "will keep fighting for your right to live freely, openly and without fear."  Which they can't do in Saudi Arabia, Qatar or Kuwait.  Nor is there any sign Hillary, as a US senator or as secretary of state, ever tried to do anything substantive about either problem.

Taking Back Our Country From the PC Police.  I went to France right after the Bataclan attack and spoke to Parisians on the street.  Virtually everyone I spoke to was totally oblivious to the threat of Islam and treated the whole thing like it was some random train crash.  They've gone from tolerance and multiculturalism to self-hatred, and today they would literally rather die than offend anyone, especially Muslims.  I'm confident we can avoid that fate.

Europe:  Allah Takes over Churches, Synagogues.  [Scroll down]  The synagogue Or Torah ["light of the Torah"] was bought by the Muslim organization Al Badr for 400,000 euros ($456,000).  The synagogue was empty, due to rampant anti-Semitism in Marseille, while the nearby mosque, run by Al Badr, was unable to handle the overcrowding every Friday, with the faithful forced to pray in the street (a quarter of the inhabitants of Marseille are Muslim).  Muslims in Marseille already have 73 mosques.  A year ago, the Muslim French leader Dalil Boubakeur suggested turning empty churches into mosques.  It is the first time in France that something similar happened to a synagogue.  "History teaches us that these transformations are rarely innocent," said Bertrand Dutheil de La Rochère, an assistant to Marine Le Pen, leader of the National Front party.

Not a visitor in sight at the Pyramids, as Egypt's tourism trade freefalls.  Plane disasters and the ongoing threat of Islamic terrorism have have brought Egypt's beleaguered tourism industry to its knees.  The economy of the crisis-hit north African country is at risk of collapsing as holidaymakers stay away from the famous Pyramids and the once popular seaside resort of Sharm el-Sheikh.

Ten Arabic Words:  A Challenge to All National Security Professionals.  If you are a politically-correct bliss-ninny with a coexist bumper sticker slapped on the back of your Subaru, and you don't have the slightest clue what the following ten words mean, then this essay is not meant for you.  You are excused.
dawah, dhimmi, hijra, jizya, kafir, shaheed, shariah, takfir, taqiyya, ummah
But if you are a national security professional, senior military officer or political leader involved in any aspect of the "Global War On Terror," AKA "Countering Violent Extremism," these are ten words that should already be a part of your working vocabulary.  If you can't readily discuss their meaning, significance, and relationships, then you are worse than a fool, you are disgrace to your office and a danger to your country.

What British Muslims Really Think.  In the recent documentary "What British Muslims Really Think," which was broadcasted on the British Channel4, on April 13, Phillips analyses the results of what he said in an article in the Times, before the documentary was aired, was "the most detailed and comprehensive survey of British Muslims' opinions so far".  The documentary deals with how Muslims in Britain relate to, including non-Muslims, women, homosexuality, polygamy and sharia.  The survey shows that 23 percent of Britain's more than 3 million Muslims would favor the introduction of sharia law, and that over half of them want to ban homosexuality.  Also it shows that at least 100,000 Muslims in Britain show sympathy with violent jihad and terrorism.

Islamophobia Forum Features Panelists Linked to Terror and Bigotry.  This month, the Muslim Students Association (MSA) at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) will be sponsoring a panel discussion about Islamophobia.  Islamophobia is a modern-day term used mainly by Islamists to describe an unwarranted fear or hatred of Islam and/or Muslims and a term also used by the like to, more appropriately, shut down any conversation about the radical element found within the Muslim community.  Not surprisingly, the majority of the event's panel is made up of those linked to terrorism and bigotry, themselves.

Top language of refugees entering the US since 2008 is still Arabic.  This is the latest from the US State Department's Refugee Processing Center, here.  This is data for the period from 2008 up until April 30, 2016.  Remember, these are only the languages spoken by refugees, this does not include those spoken by other categories of legal immigrants or of illegal immigrants.

Muslims vs Christians.  It's been the same old song for centuries — Muslims versus Christians.  Actually, I suppose more accurately put would be Muslims versus — well, everyone else — Christians, Jews, Hindus, atheists — everyone.  No other religion or community can coexist with adherent Muslims.  But more and more it is the Christians who incur the wrath of Muslims worldwide.  It's almost as if Muslims are trying to purge Christians from the world, particularly the Middle East and the surrounding regions.

Islamist London.  I am afraid that grim reality requires choosing the second of David Pryce-Jones's two ways of looking at London's election of Sadiq Khan as mayor:  By choosing an enabler of Muslim extremism, the British are losing control of their destiny.

Plotting Jihad in the Poconos.  Fethullah Gulen is a proponent of stealth jihad.  In one of his sermons, the fiery imam said that in order to reach the ideal Muslim society "every method and path is acceptable, [including] lying to people." [...] Gulen's tentacles now extend into "all the power centers" of the U.S. government, including the Oval Office.  Dalia Mogahed, President Obama's Muslim advisor, has endorsed the Gulen movement which critics believe seeks to restore the Ottoman Empire and to establish a universal caliphate.

Report: Homegrown Muslim Extremists Planting Roots Across US.  Congressional attempts to investigate the immigration histories of at least 113 foreign-born individuals snagged on terror charges since 2014 have been stymied by the Obama administration.  There remain at least 1,000 open investigations into ISIS members residing in the United States.  Officials with New Jersey's homeland security agency determined that radicalized extremists have demonstrated a continuing ability to operate across the United States, prompting concern from some terrorism experts who warn that the American homeland remains highly vulnerable to violent extremists.

Incredible Ideological Broadcast From London's New Muslim Mayor — Threatening The U.S.A.  The newly elected Mayor of London, England, Sadiq Khan, sent a rather disturbing public message to the United States and candidate Donald Trump today.  The implied threat content is more than a little alarming: [...]

'Glory to Allah': Iconic London buses get makeover for Ramadan campaign.  London's iconic buses are now part of an ad campaign that requires printing "Subhan'Allah," or "Glory to Allah," on the vehicles' sides.  Hundreds of double-decker buses in Birmingham, Bradford, Leicester, London, and Manchester will have the temporary makeover due to the nonprofit organization Islamic Relief.  "There is a lot of negativity around Muslims at the moment involving things such as counterterrorism issues.  We want to change for the better the perception of Islam.  The bus campaign is about breaking down barriers and challenging misconceptions," Imran Madden, director of Islamic Relief's U.K. Branch, said Sunday, Breitbart London reported.

The Editor says...
There are no barriers and there certainly are no misconceptions.

Paul Ryan Says U.S. Must Admit Muslim Migrants, Sends Kids to Private School that Screens Them Out.  After the Paris terrorist attack, House Speaker Paul Ryan declared that the United States cannot turn away the hundreds of thousands of Islamist migrants now being approved for visas to enter the United States.  Ryan declared that it is not "appropriate" to consider the religious attitudes of would-be migrants seeking admission.  After the San Bernardino terrorist attack, Ryan echoed President Obama in condemning what was described as Donald Trump's "religious test."  However, a Breitbart News investigation now reveals that while Paul Ryan wants no 'religious test' for who gets admitted into America, Ryan sends his children to a private school that uses a "religious test" in its admissions process.

Instead of fighting to keep Islamic terrorists (or Islam itself) out of their country, the Belgians are meekly preparing to be the victims.
All Belgian residents issued with iodine tablets to protect against radiation.  The entire population of Belgium is to be issued with a ration of iodine tablets, months after warnings about the threat of Isil building a dirty bomb.  Iodine pills, which help reduce radiation build-up in the thyroid gland, had previously only been issued to people living within 20 km (14 miles) of the Tihange and Doel nuclear plants.  Maggie De Block, the Health Minister, said that would be extended to 100 km, covering the whole country of 11 million people, following advice from an expert council.

Failing to Learn from History.  From the primitive land of the Arabian Peninsula of over 14 centuries ago arose Muhammad, an illiterate hired hand of a rich widow Khadija, claiming that he was the bearer of a perfect life prescription from God — the Quran.  He claimed humanity could do no better than to follow its precepts as well as to emulate Muhammad's own life example for a guarantee of bliss and salvation.  In exchange for this, people must embrace Islam — surrender — by surrendering their liberty to Muhammad.  To this day, in places where Islam rules, many books are banned, newspapers and magazines are systematically either censored or shut down, and other non-print media are methodically blocked.  Liberty, deeply cherished by democracies, is replaced by submission — unquestioning obedience and adherence to the dictates and precepts of the all-knowing and all-wise Allah.

The Fallacy of Focusing on Islamic Radicalization.  There are Jihadists from dozens of countries who have joined ISIS.  What do they all have in common?  The official answer is radicalization.  Muslims in Europe are "radicalized" by alienation, racism and unemployment. [...] Radicalization favors local explanations.  But those local explanations don't add up nationally or globally.  Europe spends a fortune on social services and yet Muslim terrorism has only grown worse.  Other immigrant minorities in Europe have lower unemployment rates and aren't blowing things up.  Removing Muslim dictators in the Arab Spring didn't lower terrorism; it vastly increased the power and influence of Islamic terror groups. Nor have changes in American foreign policy and greater outreach lowered Islamic terrorism.  If anything the scale of the problem seems to have only become more severe.

Syrian surge! 'Refugees' flood into U.S. at rate of 358 per week.  A flood of Muslim refugees from Syria, an average of 358 per week to be exact, is expected to arrive in the United States between now and the end of the fiscal year on Sept. 30.  The Obama administration has decided to implement a "surge" in Syrian refugees, fast-tracking the arrival of those fleeing civil war in that country to make good on its commitment of bringing 10,000 by the end of fiscal 2016.  The "surge" is needed because the administration has delivered only 1,411 in the first six-and-a-half months of the year.

Mosques experiencing growth in U.S..  The religious landscape in the United States is changing.  Islam is now among the fastest growing religions in America and it has led to a construction boom of mosques.  Mosques are not as ubiquitous as Starbucks or Mcdonald's but they are now sewn into America's landscape.

A War of Ideas.  The battle is between Islam and the West.  And it is not going to be solved by bringing more unassimilable Muslim refugees into Europe.  Cohen himself has favored this approach.  It's time for him to rethink it.  For now he believes that Belgium and Europe can solve the problem by shutting down radical clerics and by integrating young Muslims into Europe.  But, young Muslim men are incapable of doing the jobs that are available.  What matters is not so much what these young men are being taught by Islamist clerics, but what they are not being taught:  the skills that would allow them to have good jobs in a modern economy.  Sadly, this has been a problem within Islam for centuries now.  It will not be solved overnight.

UK "Equalities" Chief Admits He Was Wrong, Muslims Won't Assimilate.  In one of the most extraordinary admissions of defeat in modern times, Trevor Phillips, the former chief of Britain's Equalities and Human Rights Commission (EHRC), has admitted that the path that Britain has been on for years is a catastrophic failure.  Muslims won't assimilate and become loyal Britons.  Phillips wrote:  "For a long time, I too thought that Europe's Muslims would become like previous waves of migrants, gradually abandoning their ancestral ways, wearing their religious and cultural baggage lightly, and gradually blending into Britain's diverse identity landscape.  I should have known better."  Instead, he wrote, Muslims are creating "nations within nations" in the West.

Islam is Colonialism, Palestine is Colonialism.  At Israeli Apartheid Week, campus haters claim to be fighting "colonialism" by fighting Jews.  Columbia University's Center for Palestine Studies, dedicated to a country that doesn't exist and which has produced nothing worth studying except terrorism, features diatribes such as Palestine Re-Covered: Reading a Settler Colonial Landscape".  This word salad is a toxic stew of historical revisionism being used to justify the Muslim settler colonization of the indigenous Jewish population.  You can't colonize Palestine because you can't colonize colonizers.  The Muslim population in Israel is a foreign colonist population.  The indigenous Jewish population can resettle its own country, but it can't colonize it.  Muslims invaded, conquered and settled Israel.  They forced their language and laws on the population.  That's the definition of colonialism.  You can't colonize and then complain that you're being colonized when the natives take back the power that you stole from them.

Islamic Society proposes building mosque in Afton near Interstate 94.  The Islamic Society of Woodbury-East Metro, a growing congregation of mostly professional workers, wants to build a 10,500-square-foot mosque on rural acreage in Afton.  "Our kids need a place for educational and social growth," said spokesman Irfan Ali.  "We need to have a place more permanent for us."  The mosque, which Ali described as a "modest project," would be built on a former hobby farm at 12585 Hudson Road, near a Lutheran church off Interstate 94.  Most of the 29 acres of land would be leased for farming, he said.

DHS Won't Tell You But Radical Islamists Are Actively Trying to Poison Us.  With cyber attacks becoming more frequent and attacks on our power grid and water supplies increasing, there is a corresponding decrease in information out of the Department of Homeland Security because politics trumps safety with this government.  We can't prepare if we don't know the threat.  Americans are not being warned about the attempts by Islamic terrorists on our water supplies but if you look at the Register UK, you can get some recent information.

Another Michigan city on the verge of becoming majority Muslim.  There is not much going on here.  An influx of new Arab residents has largely gone unnoticed.  A mosque was built without opposition.  No creeping Sharia, no bigotry, no problems.  It is kind of boring, but the people love it.  The city of 10,000 south of Detroit is becoming a new destination for Arab Americans.

Jihad in the Ranks of the Gendarmerie and the Army.  [Scroll down]  After the attacks on Charlie Hebdo, the radio station RFI reported the desertion of about a dozen French soldiers, who joined the jihadists in Syria and Iraq.  At the same time, the police noticed a 35-year-old female non-commissioned officer of the Gendarmerie, who had converted to Islam in 2011 and had maintained a connection to Amar Ramadani.  Ramadani was one of the accomplices of Amedyn Coulibaly, who had carried out an Islamist terrorist attack on a kosher supermarket at the beginning of January 2015.  The policewoman had logged into the national data bank of suspicious persons 60 times, and was sentenced to a year in prison (probation) for offenses against security regulations, and released from the service.

Scrutiny grows over St.  Paul imam's involvement in ISIS cases.  An influential St.  Paul imam lobbied the father of one of the ISIS defendants to have his son take his case to trial, rather than plead guilty, according to a court document filed Thursday [3/31/2016].  Under normal circumstances, that would be well within the religious leader's right.  But the imam, Hassan Mohamud, is also a law clerk working for a defense attorney of another young Twin Cities man charged in the case, Mohamed Farah.  Increasing scrutiny over Mohamud's role prompted Farah's attorney, P. Chinedu Nwaneri, to file a motion early Friday stating he would withdraw from the case.

Do Radicalized Islamic Communities Exist in the US?  GOP presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz's call for patrolling of Muslim communities with signs of extremism is being bashed as pandering to anti-Muslim voters, with critics saying there aren't even Islamist communities in the U.S.  to begin with.  They are wrong.  They exist — and newly-published documents show that they've boasted of enforcing Islamic sharia law, even going so far as to whip children.  Jamaat ul-Fuqra, a Pakistani militant group that has rebranded itself as Muslims of the Americas, says it has 22 "Islamic villages" in the U.S.  Its "Islamberg" headquarters in New York is the most well-known.

On the Path of Submission to Islam.  Whether you accept it or not, the free world is at war.  Islam has brought a war against the civilized world.  While the majority of the world's 1.65 billion Muslims are peaceful and are not terrorists, the concern is with the fundamentalists, who are the terrorists.  Estimates vary, but if for example 90% of Muslims are peaceful.  This means 165 million are fundamentalists.  That's more than the population of France, UK and Canada combined!  Yet, how seriously is this threat being taken?  If you ask President Obama he will tell you "America is not at war with Islam."  Well Mr. President you may think that is the case, but the fact is Islam has declared war on America and the free world.  While you lament about the sweetness of the Islamic morning call to prayer, fundamentalist Islam is methodically progressing toward taking over Europe and have begun taking down the US.

Human achievements from the totalitarian left.  Ponder what epic, game-changing accomplishments have been served up to humanity by Islam since, say, the 1500s.  An "empire" that stretched from south Asia to north Africa!  Yet no diseases cured.  No architectural breakthroughs.  No pivotal findings in astronomy, geology, or even art or music.  And the last century saw an epochal vastness of wealth come into Islamic hands via the price of oil. [...] To hand the Earth over to the subhumans who espouse all forms of hegemony is to plunge Homo sapiens into a dark age from which it may never arise.  At a minimum you can say goodbye to any of the advances we hope are just now outside our grasp:  cancer cured; plentiful, clean energy; Alzheimer's cured; malaria cured; interplanetary travel.  They would be myths, not breakthroughs.

Is ISIS Faithful to Islam?  "We are not at war with Islam," said John Kasich after the Brussels massacre, "We're at war with radical Islam."  Kasich's point raises a question:  Does the Islamic faith in any way sanction or condone what those suicide bombers did?  For surely the brothers and their accomplice who ignited the bombs in the airport and set off the explosion on the subway did not do so believing they were blasting themselves to hell for all eternity.  One has to assume they hoped to be martyrs to their faith if they slaughtered infidels to terrify and expel such as these from the Islamic world and advance the coming of the caliphate of which the Prophet preached.  And where might they have gotten such ideas?

How one Minnesota school district handles a rising immigrant population.  The Hassan brothers are part of a growing community of Somali residents in this central Minnesota city of 65,000.  The recent influx of immigrant students is nothing new in the St. Cloud school district, where English-language-learner enrollment has spiked by 350 percent in the past 15 years.  Today, roughly 20 percent of the district's 10,000 students are English-language learners, many of them with ties to the East African nation of Somalia. [...] The Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations filed a federal civil rights complaint against the St. Cloud school district in 2011, alleging a hostile environment for the district's Somali students that included widespread and frequent harassment based in large measure, on religion.  The majority of the Somali community is Muslim.  Five years later, remnants of that tension remain.

Video Campaign Urges U.S. to "See Something, Say Something" About Anti-Islam Bigotry.  A new video campaign seeks to turn the "see something, say something" mantra on its head[.]  Released by progressive nonprofit People For the American Way this week, the 49-second advertisement urges viewers to "pledge that when I see anti-Muslim bigotry, I'll call it out and make clear that religious discrimination has never been the American way."  The video features several staged examples of suggested interventions, all of which challenge hateful rhetoric about Arabs and Muslims.

The Editor says...
If "religious discrimination has never been the American way," then the Muslims are the most anti-American of us all, for indeed they only see US and THEM, and fully intend to put US to death unless we agree to join THEM.

Book: More militant Islamics 'than ever before in history'.  There are 44 major Islamic terrorist organizations in the world focused on imposing their rule on the West, with the Islamic State, responsible for this week's bombings in Belgium, the best funded and networked in the world, according to a new listing of the killer groups.  "There are more militant Islamic groups now than ever before in history," declares the just published Encyclopedia of Militant Islam from the London Center of Policy Research.  "Islamic extremism is one of the deadliest sources of terror in the world," it concluded.

A Trump-Lover's Manifesto.  [Scroll down]  There is a profound racism embedded in the notion that the best thing for any Latino or Muslim is to settle permanently in the United States.  In being naturalized, they sever their ties to the civilization from which they came and assimilate into the Democrats' toxic liberal brew of consumerism, iPods, abortion, sodomy, fornication, pornography, marijuana, and atheism.  Shame me though it does to say it, this mix is American culture, which I should know — I was born in the United States and have been fighting the left's influence on popular culture for most of my life.  If the prevailing forces on the American left are so incensed by a Christianity that celebrates chastity, complementary gender roles, and strict family values, why on Earth are they promising Muslims that they will be happy settling in the very country the left strives to secularize?

Why They All Fear Ted Cruz.  It really is striking to see the massive, coordinated, almost panic-filled reaction to Ted Cruz suggesting that a program previously implemented be used again.  Everybody involved in the program is denying it or acting like it was a big failure.  "Don't associate us with it."  And what it was, it was discovered by the AP back on August 11, 2011.  It's a 2011 report in August, and the AP find out that the CIA was assisting the NYPD in monitoring New York City Muslim neighborhoods.  It was a program started under George W. Bush, continued under... none other than Barack Obama.  And since the CIA was involved, no wonder Obama wouldn't condemn Mayor Bloomberg at the time the program was underway.

Muslim Dairy Queen owner installs signs comparing Hindus to monkeys.  The Hindu community is calling on a Muslim Dairy Queen franchise owner to take down signs from his Houston-area business that compare Hindus to monkeys.  Mohammad Dar, a 65-year-old Muslim and U.S. citizen from Pakistan, claims he is not prejudiced for installing the signs — instead saying Hindus are the "racists," mySA.com reported.  Dar told the website that he decided to post the displays at his business after "researching" Hinduism — the third-largest religion in the world — for 14 years.  He said the signs at his Kemah, Texas, Dairy Queen seek to showcase the wrongs of certain religions, specifically Hinduism, acccording to the website.

Homegrown Hamas Terrorist Criticizes Cruz Over Monitoring Islamists.  The Islamic threat to our country is not in Syria.  It is in our own streets and communities, thanks to years of suicidal immigration policies and allowing the Muslim Brotherhood to operate freely and radicalize those Muslims already living here.  Ted Cruz has raised awareness to this reality.  While the foreign policy establishment is focusing exclusively on ISIS and boots on the ground in Syria, Cruz called for beefed up security in Muslim neighborhoods to prevent the festering of radicalization similar to what we are seeing in Molenbeek, Belgium.  "Our European allies are now seeing what comes of a toxic mix of migrants who have been infiltrated by terrorists and isolated, radical Muslim neighborhoods," observed Cruz.  "We need to immediately halt the flow of refugees from countries with a significant al Qaida or ISIS presence.  We need to empower law enforcement to patrol and secure Muslim neighborhoods before they become radicalized."

Islamic Terrorism Is Over If You Want It.  The National Intelligence Council has predicted that Islamic Terrorism will end by 2030. [...] In the real world, by 2030, there will be thousands of emirates, many no more than small terrorist groups, but some of which control sizable territories.  Some of these emirates will pledge allegiance to a single Caliphate like ISIS.  Others will try to get big enough to turn into their own Caliphate.  There will be a hundred miniature Afghanistans fought by international peacekeeping forces composed of a combination of local forces and NATO troops try to push out the bands of Salafi holy warriors, and their pirate camps, brothels and drug labs.  There will be drones over the skies of a hundred deserts fighting Toyota pickup trucks with bands of hooded men firing machine guns.  There will be wire transfers from a dozen Islamic finance institutions wending their way from the great oil economies of the Persian Gulf and American soldiers, who have never seen a conventional war fought in their lifetime, heading in on another rescue mission into the territory of a Terror Emirate.  The United States of 2030 will fight some of these emirates, ignore others and try to claim that some of them are moderate.

Ted Cruz Thinks Islamic Terrorists Are Actually Responsible For Islamic Terrorism.  There are many factors we can blame for the rise in Islamic terrorism in recent years:  Racism.  Income inequality.  White people.  Offensive editorial cartoons.  Racists.  South Park.  America.  Christians.  Did I say racism already?  Well, that's the main one:  racism.  One thing that is not a factor in Islamic terrorism is the ancient and beautiful religion of Islam.  That has nothing to do with any of this, because #NotAllMuslims run around stabbing and bombing and otherwise inconveniencing non-Muslims.  I blame myself, and you should blame yourself too.  Unless, of course, you're a Muslim.

After Brussels, Time to Get Serious.  It would be dangerously naïve to think that the Islamic State is not planning to export its brand of terror to the United States.  To that end, America cannot repeat the mistakes of Europe, beginning with irresponsible immigration and refugee-resettlement policies.  (The Somali community in Minnesota's Twin Cities, which has seen an alarming number of young men and women depart to join al-Shabaab and the Islamic State, offers an example of what can happen if large Muslim populations fail to assimilate.)  Securing our borders is a crucial step in preventing the infiltration of terrorists into the country, and preventing them from radicalizing and recruiting young Muslims here.  Additionally, our reliance on European intelligence to vet foreigners arriving in the United States must be reconsidered.  France, Belgium, and others lack the surveillance capacities to defend their own citizens, let alone ours.

Sharia in Denmark : Documentary investigates claims that imams are working towards keeping parallel societies for Muslims.  The documentary consists of an undercover investigation into claims that Muslim imams are working towards keeping parallel societies for Muslims within Denmark.  The filmmakers had two young Muslims — brought from outside Denmark — go undercover in Gellerupparken, an area best described as a predominantly Muslim ghetto in Aarhus, Denmark's second city.  For three months, the two lived as a fictitious couple, Fatma and Muhammed, while visiting eight different mosques in Aarhus, Odense and Copenhagen — the three largest cities in Denmark — with hidden cameras.  The goal was to hear what imams say behind closed doors about Danish law and authorities, gender equality and general contact with Danish society, such as Muslim women participating in the Danish job market.

Radical Islam vs. Free Speech.  [Scroll down] Knowing all these things, one can only conclude, by their own words, that Western democracy is utterly incompatible with Islam.  Whether they are radical Islamists like ISIS and al-Qaeda, who attempt to conquer by force, or supposedly non-violent groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood and Hizb-ut Tahrir, who seek to conquer the West by way of Civilization Jihad, the end is still the same — the replacement of democracy and republicanism with theocracy.  As I stated, most Americans are not aware of these unfortunate facts, as we are more than the rest of the West, insulated from the violence.  Of course we have felt the sting of Islamic jihad, but still, it is not the constant publicized threat with which Europe or Israel must contend.  Yet to Islamists worldwide, we are the ultimate prize.  America is the great Satan, whose founding was one of freedom of speech, religion, expression and assembly.  These things are directly contradictory to Islamist ideology.

You Better Believe 'Islam Hates Us'.  Donald Trump's latest politically incorrect comment concerning Islam is much truer than most know.  After being asked last week on CNN if he believed the West was at war with Islam, the Republican presidential candidate simply said:  ["]I think Islam hates us.  There's something there that — there's a tremendous hatred there.  There's a tremendous hatred.  We have to get to the bottom of it.  There's an unbelievable hatred of us.["]  While millions of Americans undoubtedly agree with Trump's assertions — at least those who have eyes and ears to see and hear with — few realize that this "tremendous hatred" is not a product of grievances, political factors, or even an "extremist" interpretation of Islam; rather, it is a direct byproduct of mainstream Islamic teaching.

A Christian Preacher Debates Muslims about Mohammed.  This special edition of The Glazov Gang was joined by Louis Lionheart, a Christian preacher and scholar of Islam who came on the show to discuss his experience of Debating Muslims about Mohammed on the Streets of Santa Monica.  He unveils the problematic ingredients of Muslims' arguments about their religion and shares the myriad forms of abuse and threats that have been heaped upon him.  [Video clip]

Israel To Vote on Banning Mosques From Using P.A.s For Call to Prayer.  Israeli lawmakers are to vote on Sunday on a bill that proposes banning mosques from using public announcement systems to issue the call to prayer for their Muslim followers.  The call to prayer is traditionally announced five times a day through loudspeakers, including once in the early morning.  Right-wing sections of Israeli society complain about the noise bellowing into the everyday lives of Jewish communities.  The bill, which will be voted on by the Ministerial Committee on Legislation, seeks to end the announcements as well as "conveying religious or nationalist messages, or even words of incitement" through broadcasts.

Residents complain that 'call to prayer' is too loud.  The debate over the Muslim call to prayer is reverberating once again.  At last week's city council meeting, several residents of the Hamtramck Senior Plaza apartments on Holbrook complained about the volume level of the call to prayer coming from the Ideal Islamic Center, located across from the apartment complex.  Jeanette Powell said she's not complaining as a way to "bash anyone's religion."  She said the call or prayer was broadcast at 6 a.m. and found the volume "overbearing."  "Just turn it down a little bit."

The Editor says...
Muslims do not assimilate into American society.  Once they grow to 51 percent of the population in your city, they will do whatever they please.

Geert Wilders: Stopping Islamic Immigration Is a Matter of Survival.  While the world's population is expected to rise by 35 percent until the middle of this century, Islam will grow with a staggering 73 percent.  The consequences of future Islamic growth are frightening.  Islam is not a religion like Christianity, but rather a totalitarian political ideology.  Its goal is primarily political.  Islam wants to make the whole world submit.  It aims to establish a worldwide Islamic state and bring everyone, including "infidels," such as Christians, Jews, atheists, and others, under Sharia law.  This is the barbaric Islamic law which deprives non-Muslims of all rights, treats women as inferior beings, condemns apostates and critics of Islam to death, and condones terror.  More Islam equals more violence, more intolerance, more terrorism.

Muslims Outnumber Christians In Capital Of European Union.  Considering what European Union policies have done to Europe, it seems all too apt for its capital to be a hive of Islamic terror and on the road to becoming a majority Muslim city. [...] There isn't going to be a Brussels in 50 years.  There's going to be an Islamic State.  It's much too late to start pleading with the Jihadi invaders to play nice.  It's time to decide if there is going to be an Islamic State in Belgium or not.

Islam: The Jinn is out of the bottle.  Americans and Europeans need to stop acting surprised when Muslims behave like Muslims.  They are acting according to what the Qur'an says to do.  It's there in plain sight for anyone to read.  And its ultimate aim is conquest and complete domination of any other culture but Islam.  Winston Churchill referred to it as a "militant and proselytizing faith."

An ISIS 9/11 Attack On America With WMDs In 2016.  [Scroll down]  Can we please put two and two together?  If ISIS is going to cross our border and attack America, why wouldn't it shoot for the moon and use chemical weapons against us in assaults that would make the 9/11 attacks look like a walk in the park?  ISIS wouldn't even have to smuggle them in.

What if there really 'is' a specific plan to transform America into an Islamic nation by 2020?  Long before the Paris attacks, or the San Bernadino couple had gone on their rampage or the Philly policeman had been shot by a Muslim man while shouting "Allahu Akbar," the author could see into the future.  The idea of America becoming an Islamic State has never been taken seriously.  But just look at Europe:  In less than two months, Germany has been flooded with more than a million Muslims, most of them military-age men posing as refugees and wreaking havoc on the native citizens — raping young girls, destroying refugee asylum centers, demanding money and free housing, and even worse, disappearing into the general population with no way to track them.  And there's no end in sight to this European mass migration.

Former Amarillo Resident Sounds the Alarm on Islamic Resettlement.  Karen Sherman saw what the federal government's practice of establishing Islamic colonies throughout the country did to Amarillo.  Having moved north, she is sounding the alarm in Montana.  With luck, her warning will spread far beyond.  [Video clip]

Hijrah: Why Is Small Town America Being Flooded With Islamic "Refugees"?  Small towns in the sparsely populated parts of America are the perfect place to relocate these refugees.  Especially if your agenda includes politically terraforming the country.  The West is historically conservative in their politics.  Many are Republicans and Libertarians.  Even the Democrats hearken back to an earlier time when they were more conservative in nature.  Obama and the Democrats can't have that.  They need to have an entire country willing to submit to Marxist diktats.  They need areas seeded with those who will vote Democrat and ensure that they stay in power no matter what.  And it's not just voting demographics that are pushing this move either.  I personally believe that there is a warped logic to all of this.  That if Islam can be made the predominant religion in America, people will be more easily controlled.  That's insane of course and won't work, but there you have it.  Instead, Shariah law will be implemented and you will see the same atrocities occurring in Europe happen here.  The big difference being, that at least for now, Americans are armed and will use those weapons to protect their neighbors, loved ones and country.

The Peace of Submission.  During the Cold War, the Soviet Union funded "peace movements" throughout the west — because for the Soviets "peace" meant "the absence of opposition".  In our time the new peace movement is Islam.  And so we are told today, from the podium of a mosque with "extremist" "links", that the very word Islam means "peace".  Actually, it means "submission" — ie, the absence of opposition.  The only difference between then and now is that instead of being chanted by scrofulous hippies protesting outside a Nato air base the old line's being peddled to us by the President of the United States.

The multiculturalism myth: World leaders ignore Islam's refusal to assimilate.  Just as radar warns of approaching storms, so does the flood of migrants entering Europe warn us of a deluge yet to come, not only for Europeans, if they continue to allow unrestricted immigration, but for the United States.  Reports that women in Cologne, Germany, have been groped and robbed by men described by authorities as having "a North African or Arabic" appearance should be warning enough, but there are other and more ominous warnings that suggest worse lies ahead, unless the problem receives immediate attention and action.  And it's not just Cologne.

In Poconos, mysterious Turkish cleric shrouded in mystery.  The influential Muslim cleric lives quietly on a gated 26-acre compound in the Pocono Mountains, where he prays, works, meets admirers and watches from afar as terrorism accusations that have landed him on Turkey's most-wanted list unfold in court.

Islam and the First Amendment.  It's an absurd but deadly circus.  Time after time, Islamic terrorists murder innocent people, and leftists immediately fall all over themselves to embrace Muslims and declare Islam to be a "religion of peace."  In my home state, the director of the Oklahoma chapter of CAIR denounced anti-Muslim rhetoric and warned, "hateful words too often lead to violence."  Listening to this sort of propaganda one might obtain the impression that Christian Crusaders were massacring innocent Muslims.  The reality is that Islamic terrorists worldwide are intent not just on the genocide of Christians but the replacement of Western Civilization by a universal caliphate.

Submission Thy Name is Islam.  What happens when America stops expecting its immigrants to assimilate to our culture and instead assimilates to theirs?  Well, you begin by installing footbaths at universities so Muslims will stop washing their feet in the bathroom sinks and you take it from there.  Eventually the rights and rituals of the minority Muslims take presedence [sic] over the rights and rituals of the country's majority Christians.  For a closer look at how the world's most advanced civilization submits to the will of the world's most retrograde civilization we need only look to Europe.

Why Sharia Is Incompatible with American Values.  You and I don't like sharia, while hundreds of millions love it. [...] It's time to go deeper and figure out what's happening in us that makes us recoil at it.  ISIS and many Islamic nations believe, because original Islam teaches, the following:
  •   Mosque and state are not separate.
  •   Apostasy, or leaving Islam, is outlawed up to the penalty of death.
  •   Speaking against Islam is outlawed up to the penalty of death.
  •   Jihad or qital (military war only) to force conversions or submit to a tax is allowed.
  •   Having sex with female prisoners of war is allowed.
  •   Drinkers and gamblers may be flogged.
  •   Adulterers and fornicators may be flogged (and adulterers may be stoned to death).
  •   Bearing false witness about sexual sin (a "crime" in Islam) can incur flogging.
  •   Homosexuals may be flogged or executed.
  •   A woman inherits half of what a man does.
  •   Domestic violence is allowed.
  •   A woman's testimony counts as half of a man's testimony.
  •   A man may divorce his wife by pronouncing three times "you are divorced" outside a court of law, and the divorce is legal and final.

The Left's Problem with Nature and Logic.  [Scroll down]  In short, it is our ability to recognize patterns and amend our behavior and expectations that fosters progress today, just as it was a hundred, a thousand, and many thousands of years ago.  Is it not, therefore, the most damning of facts that the "progressive" left appears to find no usefulness in logically appraising and acting upon the patterns we routinely observe?  Rather, they buck every natural compulsion by not only ignoring patterns, but by acting in direct defiance of logic and survival instincts that we humans have inherited.  How else can one describe a group who could read a report that shows that 450 out of 452 (or 99.6% of) suicide terror attacks in 2015 were perpetrated by Muslims and carried out in the name of Allah, only to insist that Muslims are not uniquely linked to global terrorism?

Here's the Suppressed NYPD Terror Report.  The ACLU and its allies have succeeded in getting a federal court to order the New York Police Department to remove from its website the prescient and far-reaching 2007 report, "Radicalization in the West: The Homegrown Threat."  But you can read it here, courtesy of Judicial Watch.

The End of Saudi Arabia?  A more detestable regime than Saudi Arabia could not be found.  Arguably the most repressive regime on earth.  An absolute monarchy.  A Wahhabist theocratic nightmare that arms ISIS. [...] Make no mistake about it:  Shi'a Iran, as bad as it is, is nowhere near as oppressive as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA).  There are churches in Iran, albeit persecuted.  There are none in the KSA.  Not even a façade of tolerance.  If Iran and the Shi'a-led Hezb'allah are the world's chief exporters of terror, it is because they are more competent than Sunnis, not because their tyranny is darker than the KSA's Wahhabism.

First City in America to be Muslim-majority; can Sharia law be far behind?  In November, the blue-collar city that has been home to Polish Catholic immigrants and their descendents for more than a century became what demographers think is the first jurisdiction in the nation to elect a majority-Muslim council.  It's the second tipping for Hamtramck, which in 2013 earned the distinction of becoming what appears to be the first majority-Muslim city in the United States following the arrival of thousands of immigrants from Yemen, Bangladesh and Bosnia over a decade.  The once-thriving factory town now struggles with one of the highest poverty rates in Michigan.

Court Requires NYPD to Purge Docs on Terrorists Inside U.S..  The New York Police Department has been directed by a U.S. court to remove from its online records an investigation pertaining to the rise of Islamic extremists in the West and the threats these individuals pose to American safety, according to legal documents.  As part of a settlement agreement reached earlier this month with Muslim community advocates in U.S. District Court, the NYPD will purge from its website an extensive report that experts say has been critical to the department's understanding of radical Islam and its efforts to police the threat.

Every Muslim Will Bow Before Jesus.  It is, indeed, our great hope and prayer that every Muslim — every human being — might surrender self and come to the saving knowledge and grace of Christ Jesus, who, alone, is "the way and the truth and the life."  For, "No one comes to the Father except through [Him]" (see John 14:6).  To be sure, it is the express desire of both God the Father and Christ His Son that each and every Muslim on earth should abandon Muhammad's broad path to perdition, turnabout and move toward Christ's narrow path to eternal life.

The Tet Offensive: European Union Edition.  Islam is similar to a self-replicating supercomputer virus.  It is a hydra-headed monster, designed by its creators to be an unstoppable formula for global conquest.  It's almost impossible to eradicate, because it has no central brain or control center.  Islam is like a starfish: when you cut off a limb, another grows to replace it.  The names of the Muslim leaders, and the names of their Islamic groups, are transitory and ultimately unimportant.  Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda are succeeded by Al-Baghdadi and the Islamic State, but they will all pass from the scene and be replaced by others.  While Muslim leaders and regimes have come and gone, Islam itself has remained steadfastly at war with the non-Muslim world for 1,400 years.

What Does the Word 'Muslim' Mean?  The entire debate about what it means to be "Muslim" and shariah-compliant might be solved with a quick lesson in Arabic grammar.  This is because the word "Muslim" contains in its Arabic meaning its own definition.  You see, the word "Muslim" in Arabic has two parts:  the "Mu" prefix and the triliteral root that forms the word "Islam."  That root word, "Islam," is a verbal noun that means "submission."  When an "Mu" prefix is attached to such a root in Arabic, the resulting noun means "a person who does the thing that root word denotes."  Therefore, with "Islam" being a verbal noun meaning submission, "Muslim" therefore means "one who submits."  Submits to what?  To Allah's will, which is shariah.  Islamic Law.

Cruz & Sessions Tell Obama to Stop Covering Up the Arrests of Jihadis Inside the U.S..  Sen. Jeff Sessions and Sen. Ted Cruz have sent a follow-up letter to the Obama Administration regarding the growing threat of homegrown terrorism, as 41 more terrorists are identified within the U.S.  Conservative Review Senior Editor Daniel Horowitz reported the original inquiry sent to Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Jonhson, and Secretary of State John Kerry in August 2015.  At that time, Cruz and Sessions requested immigration histories for the identified Islamic terrorists and their families.  Five months later and the Obama Administration has continued to stonewall efforts by Congress to obtain more information regarding these terrorists, even as the threat to national security grows.  Even after the terrorist attacks in San Bernardino.  Now, the Washington Free Beacon reports an additional 41 individuals have been implicated in terrorist plots in the United States since 2014.

Yellow star
Muslims Wearing a Yellow Star is Like Nazis Wearing a Yellow Star.  Muslim appropriation of Jewish suffering is obnoxious to begin with, but the bizarre habit of Muslims wearing yellow stars has been condemned by even liberal Jewish groups.  It's insanely and gratuitously offensive.  Let's start with the simple fact that the yellow star had its origins in a Dhimmi badge imposed on Jews by Muslims as symbols of their inferiority under Muslim rule.  Long before Nazism, the use of yellow badges and other yellow distinguishing clothes was imposed on Jews by Muslims over a thousand years ago.  It continued well into the 20th century.


How Many Muslims in the United States?  Using information from 1990 and 2000 national censuses, John R. Logan and and Glenn Deane find under 2,900,000 Muslims living in the United States.

Islam Set To Become The Second-Largest Religion In America By 2040.  The American Muslim population stands a strong chance of doubling in size by 2050 and becoming the second largest religion by 2040, based on new estimates from the Pew Research Center.  At the moment, Pew believes that there's approximately 3.3 million Muslims living in the United States.  Given the total U.S. population, this means that Muslims currently comprise 1 percent.  But by 2050, Pew thinks that Muslims may surge to 8.1 million.

We all know why we should 'Never Hire a Muslim'.  Looks like we should 'Never Work for a Muslim,' either.  [Scroll down]  I just wanted to share my story because I have had firsthand experience with Muslims.  These people are dangerous, they all wanted Sharia Law and for Islam to become a dominant religion worldwide, they talked about this in their groups because they thought I was becoming one of them.  Many of the Muslims I knew practice polygamy and have very large families, they are becoming a dominant group in my hometown even though they have only been here for a few years.  I live in a relatively small American town, and we now have an Islamic center and there is talk of a mosque being built soon.  I used to believe that Islam was just like other religions and that Muslims were just regular people, but the truth is many of the evil Muslims shown on television, are reflections of the Muslims I have known in my personal life.

Obama and the Insanity of the Liberal Mind.  Anyone questioning the liberal mantra that Islam is a religion of peace, despite data to the contrary, is labeled an Islamophobe with the aim of shutting down honest debate.  Islamists declared war on the U.S. well before 9/11 and yet liberals still refuse to name the enemy.  To liberals, political correctness trumps common sense.  Irrationally, they are importing hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees despite knowing that terrorists are entering the country.  FBI training materials were insanely scrubbed of any mention of jihad, Islamic extremism or other terms potentially offensive to Muslims, likely resulting in Tamerlan Tsarneav slipping through the cracks.  And while logic would dictate expanding the number of terrorists held at Guantanamo Bay, Obama is releasing known terrorists back to the killing fields, common sense — and his oath of office — [notwithstanding].

It is time for Muslims to begin a deep self-examination.  In the wake of the Paris bloodbath, the attacks in San Bernardino, Calif., and Bamako, Mali, and murders elsewhere before and since, people desperately want to understand the root cause of all this violence.  That's true not only in the West, where many blame Islam itself.  It's true in the Middle East, too, where we are struggling to come to grips with the carnage and the region's role in it.  Many of the usual suspects were singled out in the reaction here to the most recent attacks.  Various Arab and Muslim writers blame Iran and Israel; others point to the West's policies in the Middle East and the Muslim world.  Of course, some media voices repeat the well-worn view that we Arabs are the victims of hidden conspiracies.  But more self-critical voices have arisen as well.

Hilaire Belloc in 1938: Islam 'the Most Formidable and Persistent Enemy' of Western Civilization.  The celebrated historian and British parliamentarian Hilaire Belloc was convinced in his day that Europe and America had forgotten about Islam to their own peril, and were unaware that the Muslim religion could rise again and would pose perhaps the greatest threat of any enemy of the western world.  "It has always seemed to me possible, and even probable," Belloc wrote in 1938, "that there would be a resurrection of Islam and that our sons or our grandsons would see the renewal of that tremendous struggle between the Christian culture and what has been for more than a thousand years its greatest opponent."

ISIS sets rules for raping captive women.  Most of what the terrorist army of ISIS has done in its murderous march across a wide swath of the Mideast these last two years appears incomprehensible to outside eyes:  video beheadings, mass street killings, children enlisted to execute neighbors, victims tossed from tall buildings.  Now one document from a stash seized during a bold Special Ops raid into Syria seven months ago has provided a shocking window into the medieval minds of these radical Islamic extremists who would impose harsh Sharia law wherever their caliphate spreads.  Hard to believe we're reading such material in what to most of the world is the 21st century.

It's Not ISIS We Need to Beat — It's the Caliphate.  The official ISIS story, the one that we read in the newspapers, watch on television and hear on the radio, is that it's a unique group whose brand of extremism is so extreme that there is no comparing it to anything else.  ISIS has nothing to do with Islam.  Or with anything else.  It's a complete aberration.  Except for the 15 other Jihadist groups ready to step into its shoes in just one country.  Islamic Supremacist organizations like ISIS can be graded on the "Caliphate curve".  The Caliphate curve is based on how quickly an Islamic organization wants to achieve the Caliphate.  What we describe as "extreme" or "moderate" is really the speed at which an Islamic group seeks to recreate the Caliphate.  ISIS is at the extreme end of the scale, not because it tortures, kills and rapes, but because it implemented the Caliphate immediately.  The atrocities for which ISIS has become known are typical of a functioning Caliphate.  The execution of Muslims who do not submit to the Caliph, the ethnic cleansing and sexual slavery of non-Muslims are not aberrations.  They are normal behavior for a Caliphate.

Muslim Immigration is What ISIS Wants.  Islam is a transnational movement.  Islamic terrorism is a race between terror groups around the world to carve out their own Islamic states and then use them as a springboard to a Caliphate.  ISIS is the end stage of Islamic terrorism.  Its leader is a Caliph with all Muslims obliged to submit to him.  The Islamic State is not just in Syria and Iraq.  It is everywhere that a Muslim outpost swears allegiance to the Caliph.  On its own maps the Islamic State encompasses parts of Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia and Russia.  The more local Islamic terror groups pledge allegiance to ISIS, the bigger it becomes.  ISIS doesn't plan to defeat America through acts of terrorism.  The plan for defeating America, like every other country, Muslim or non-Muslim, is to build a domestic Muslim terror movement that will be able to hold territory and swear allegiance to the Islamic State.

Islam and the West: An irreconcilable conflict?  Did the worst attack on the United States since Pearl Harbor, 9/11, have nothing to do with the Islamic faith?  Did Fort Hood and the San Bernardino massacres, the London subway bombings and the killings at Charlie Hebdo, as well as the slaughter at the Bataclan in Paris, have nothing to do with Islam?  Does the lengthening list of atrocities by terrorist cells of IS, Boko Haram, al-Qaida, al-Shabaab and the Nusra Front have nothing to do with Islam?  Is it really illiberal to inquire "into the religious opinions" of those who perpetrate these atrocities?  Or is it suicidal not to?  There has arisen a legitimate question as to whether Islamism can coexist peacefully with, or within, a post-Christian secular West.

Islam: Not Just a Religion.  Americans are having a hard time discussing the problem of Muslim immigration and assimilation because Islam is not just a religion; it's a whole way of life, civil and spiritual.  The First Amendment was written because Christians of all denominations believed that while people's religious beliefs are the basis for the law, no one Christian group should be supported by the power of the federal government.  After all, that's why many Americans had fled England.  Islam, according to many Muslims, rejects that principle and declares that all authority belongs to Islam.  It's as though Catholics believed that the pope should be the ultimate authority for setting the fine you have to pay if you get a speeding ticket.

Of Course Muslims and Christians Don't Worship the Same God.  First, God is the heavenly Father of Christians, but Allah is not the Father of Muslims.  This is one of the most fundamental revelations of the Bible, which is why Jesus taught His followers to pray the "Our Father" prayer on a daily basis (Matthew 6:9-13).  The New Testament even goes as far as saying that God has put the spirit of sonship into our hearts so that we can call God "Abba," just as Jesus called His Father "Abba" (Romans 8:15; Galatians 4:6).  But Allah is not seen as the heavenly Father in Islam, let alone as Abba, an even more endearing term.  That's why, "Father" is not one of the 99 Names of Allah in Islamic theology.

20 Ways To Tell If You Might Be A Liberal.  You might be a liberal if... [#1] Your newspaper calls people "bigoted" for being worried about bringing Syrian refugees to America, but you won't run pictures of Muhammad because you're afraid Muslims might kill you for it.

CAIR and Co. Warn 2016 Candidates: Spew 'Islamophobia' at Your Political Peril.  Leaders of several American Muslim organizations warned Donald Trump and other presidential candidates Monday that if they engage in bigotry and "Islamophobia" they will pay a political price because Muslim voters — in the words of one — will mobilize and "make sure you are out of there."  "Let it be heard, and clear, to all political candidates, be it Donald Trump or whoever else, that indeed, if you engage in Islamophobia, if you engage in demagoguery and bigotry, you will pay a political price," American Muslim Alliance director Mahdi Bray said at the National Press Club.

Suppose there was an ideology.  Suppose the adherents of that ideology believed:
  •   Homosexuals and transsexuals should be executed.
  •   Women should be punished for the crime of being raped.
  •   The word of a woman is worth half that of a man in a court of law.
  •   Western culture, including pluralism, tolerance, freedom of expression, the rule of law, etc. is an abomination.
  •   Men can beat their wives for such transgressions as refusing sex or leaving the house without permission.
  •   Men can divorce their wives by saying three times "I divorce you."
  •   Women should not be permitted to drive.
  •   Girls' genitals should be mutilated to ensure that as adults they do not experience sexual pleasure.
  •   Anyone who strays from the ideology should be put to death.
  •   Anyone who disagrees with the ideology is inferior and should be subjugated, and subject to harassment, extra taxes, and other punishments.
  •   The teachings of the ideology take precedence over the United States Constitution and federal code.
Suppose that adherents of that ideology were responsible for 99% of terrorist attacks worldwide, including some 27,000 documented terror attacks since 9/11, 169 just last month.  [...] How many adherents of that ideology should we take?

Mecca On The Tiber: The Catholic Church gives Islam an indulgence.  [Scroll down]  As Catholicism deteriorates across North American and Europe, dioceses sell unused or under-utilized churches and schools to Muslims, who convert them for their own religious use.  In 2003, Catholic officials in Glasgow approved the transformation of St. Albert's School into an Islamic institution.  Muslims constituted at least 90 percent of the school's 360 students.  "We are in favor of Muslim schools," an unidentified church spokesman told Edinburgh's The Scotsman.  "We support faith schools across the board.  In the case of St. Albert's, we see a school in which for 95 percent of the children, the festival of Eid has more significance than Christmas or Easter.  It is de facto not a Catholic school."

Unlimited Muslim immigration: A Congress of fools or traitors?  Senate bill 153, the Immigration Innovation Act (or I-Squared), led by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), would allow for virtually unlimited Muslim immigration into the United States. [...] A recent Pew Research report found that "nearly all Muslims in Afghanistan (99%) and most in Iraq (91%) and Pakistan (84%) support sharia law as official law."  Yet in the last five years, the U.S. has issued 83,000 green cards to Pakistan, 83,000 green cards to Iraq and 11,000 green cards to Afghanistan.  According to Fox News' Chad Pergram, Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and House Republicans are gearing up to attach a proposal to the omnibus spending bill that gives Barack Obama a blank check, empowering him to bring in an unlimited number of refugees.

How to Beat Islamic State.  [Scroll down]  What is the strategy behind this Islamic State-inspired violence?  Jihadists of all bents seek to create discord, pitting Muslims against non-Muslims in the West and Sunni Muslims against Shiite Muslims in the East.  The theocratic ideology of Islamism thrives on division, polarization and claims of Muslim victimhood.  Islamic State's leaders insist that the U.S. and the rest of the West are waging a global war against all Islam and Muslims.  This is obvious nonsense, but by a combination of provocation and self-fulfilling prophecy, Islamic State is doing everything possible to make it a reality — helped along, alas, by Donald Trump's call this week "for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States."

Here's Why Trump Is Right About 'Shutting Down' Parts Of The Internet.  If you are a moron, you could interpret Donald Trump's statements in the GOP debate tonight to mean he wants to start shutting down specific websites or services on the internet.  He clarified later that he was talking about geography: limiting access to, say, Syria or wherever Islamic State is operating from.  Trump is right not only that limiting or knocking out the internet is the best way of hampering Islamic State, but also because there is at least one solution that is eminently feasible.  It's just that sneering commentators aren't educated enough to know about it.

Mark Zuckerberg-Backed Immigration Bill Would Allow Unlimited Muslim Immigration.  In January of 2015, a handful of Senators quietly introduced new legislation in Congress that would allow for virtually unlimited Muslim immigration into the United States — lifting caps entirely on several categories of visas favored by immigrants from Muslim countries.  The Mark Zuckerberg-backed legislation, S.153, is called the Immigration Innovation Act (or I-Squared), and it has taken on new significance following the terrorist attacks in San Bernardino.

Ben Carson calls for scrutiny of Muslims, cites Muslim Brotherhood in America plot.  Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson on Sunday [12/13/2015] advocated close scrutiny of Muslims entering and living in America, pointing to a Muslim Brotherhood document that outlined a strategy to infiltrate and destroy Western civilization from within.  Defending his previous remarks that strict adherence to the Islamic faith is incompatible with the U.S. Constitution, Mr. Carson cited a strategic planning document from a Muslim Brotherhood in America meeting uncovered by federal investigators.

Muslim judge sworn in on Koran in New York.  A Muslim Civil Court judge was reportedly sworn in Tuesday in New York using the holy book of Islam as a testament to her faith.  "All is praise [sic] is indeed due to the Most High!" Hon. Carolyn Walker-Diallo, a life-long resident of Brooklyn, said in a post on her website.  "I am humbled that my community has entrusted me with the immense responsibility of ensuring that EVERYONE has notice and a FAIR opportunity to be heard in the halls of justice."

U.S. judge sworn into office on Quran.  New York's newest 7th Municipal District Court judge for the Brooklyn borough, a Muslim woman named Carolyn Walker-Diallo, has reportedly shied from the Bible and turned to the Quran to swear in to her seat.  The Gulf News first reported the matter, saying the use of the Quran gives "hope" to the Muslim community.

Carolyn Walker-Diallo, Muslim judge, sworn in on Koran in Brooklyn.  A routine municipal ceremony has become seeped in controversy after a Brooklyn Civil Court judge was sworn in using a Koran.  Carolyn Walker-Diallo, who was elected last month in Brooklyn's 7th Municipal District, took her oath of office Thursday [12/17/2015] using the holy book of Islam as a testament to her Muslim faith.  The swearing-in session went off without a hitch, but after attendees posted video of the ceremony to social media, the backlash became so severe that some of Walker-Diallo's supporters became concerned for her safety.

Judge receives death threats after being sworn in on Koran.  The NYPD hate-crimes unit is investigating threats made to a Brooklyn Civil Court judge who was sworn in on a Koran, The [New York] Post has learned.  Judge Carolyn Walker-Diallo got two calls at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday at the courthouse on Schermerhorn Street, law enforcement sources said on Wednesday [12/16/2015]. [...] David Bookstaver, a spokesman for the state's courts, said judges need only swear an oath of office that they will uphold the law, and that there are no requirements to use a religious text.

Law Professors: Trump's Muslim Moratorium Is Constitutional.  One of the main criticisms of Donald Trump's proposed moratorium on Muslim immigration is that it's unconstitutional.  For example, Republican presidential candidate and law graduate Marco Rubio said that the plan "violates the Constitution" earlier this week.  However, two notable law professors — Jan C. Ting of Temple University and Eric Posner of the University of Chicago — say those critics are wrong and possibly don't know much about legal history.

10th Twin Cities man charged with conspiring to join ISIS.  An Eagan man accused of providing material support to the terrorist organization ISIS in Syria made his first court appearance Thursday morning [12/10/2015] before a federal judge.  Abdirizak Warsame, a 20-year-old security guard, was ordered held pending a detention hearing on Tuesday.  He will also be assigned a public defender.

Dhimmitude and Trump.  [Scroll down]  Next to the Great Salt Lake [the Mormon] community flourished, and when their numbers reached the requirement for statehood, they applied but were rejected by Congress for being polygamists, when that behavior was illegal in every state and still is.  Over the next Biblical generation of forty years, the Mormons repeatedly applied for statehood and were rejected every time until 1890 when they revamped their doctrine, outlawed polygamy, and entered the Union in 1896.  On similar, legal grounds, Islam must be declared illegal in the United States, and all of its mosques padlocked by court order.  Polygamy is a root cause of many of Islam's social pathologies.  It is organically connected to their abuse of women, cruel violence, inbreeding, rampant male-to-male sodomy and the fathering of too many children for their economies to support.

Imam Explains Why He Agrees With Trump's Ban on Muslims Entering the U.S..  On "Hannity" tonight, a Muslim imam explained why he actually agrees with Donald Trump's proposed ban on Muslims entering the U.S.  Imam Nidal Alsayyed, religious director of the Islamic Society of Triplex in Houston, Texas, told Sean Hannity that Trump is concerned about Muslims and Islam being associated with radical terror groups.  Alsayyed said it's a "very wise move" to take safety and security measures, including putting a temporary hold on Muslim immigration, until we have figured out what's going on.

Not just the GOP: Almost half of the public supports Trump ban on Muslim immigration says new poll.  More research now suggests that the general public as well as Republicans side with Donald Trump's immigration proposals for Muslims.  A new Rasmussen Reports survey released Thursday [12/10/2015] finds that 66 percent of likely Republican voters favor a temporary ban on all Muslims entering the United States until the federal government improves its ability to screen out potential terrorists from coming here.  A quarter of the respondents oppose the plan, with 10 percent undecided.

Politicians Aren't Causing Anti-Muslim Hostility — Jihadists Are.  As I've said before, since 9/11 Americans have suffered more than 60,000 casualties in our war against jihadists, with thousands more suffering from lingering psychological wounds from grief, loss, and difficult deployments.  We've watched as radical Muslims burn people alive, throw them off buildings, and chop off heads.  In some parts of the Muslim world, mobs of Muslims will sometimes hunt down and kill Christians in the most vicious and gruesome of ways.  We've seen ISIS attempt genocide, Boko Haram enslave girls, and al Qaeda kill journalists at their desks in Paris.  Yet Americans have responded with remarkable grace, and anti-Muslim hate crimes are rare indeed.  Yes, it's true that many Americans dislike Islam.  It's true that many Americans want to either ban Muslim immigration or dramatically restrict entry into the United States.  But don't blame political rhetoric for this hostility.  Blame actions — actions taken in the name of Islam.

Dems Turn To Mocking Terror Fears.  Americans now rate terrorism as their number one concern.  They feel unsafe and insecure.  They are justifiably afraid of the threat that might be just around the next corner.  Americans are lunging for the shotgun and barricading the door.  And what do they get from their leaders?  Reassurance?  Understanding?  Resolve to defeat terrorism abroad before it comes home?  No, they get a lecture on their latent hostility toward the Islamic faith and practicing Muslims.

Poll: Majority of U.S. disagrees with Trump's plan to ban Muslims.  A solid majority opposes Donald Trump's plan to block Muslims from entering the U.S. while a quarter of the public supports it, according to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey released Thursday [12/10/2015].  The poll found 57 percent of people disagree with Trump's plan and 25 percent said they agree with it.

Fighting for Victory against Islamism.  How much more slaughter of innocents in the name of Islam do we need to endure before the free nations of the world wake up and admit that we are at war with the ideology of Islamism?  We are in a global struggle of a magnitude we have not seen since the end of the Cold War — and this time we are fighting an enemy whose natural constituency includes almost one-fourth of the world's population.  The steady drumbeat of Islamist violence around the world has now reached a climax with the horrific atrocities in Paris and San Bernardino.  No longer can pseudo-experts, apologists, and the media hide behind excuses, platitudes, and clichés.  Enough is enough.

Pew: Muslims 'fastest-growing religious group in the world,' 70% Democrat.  Muslims are the fastest-growing religious group in the world, with 23 percent of the global population, and will take over Christianity as the top religion by the end of the century, according to the Pew Research Center.  A review of Muslims by the nonpartisan organization also found that Muslims comprise a growing share of the immigrants granted permanent residency in the United States each year. [...] Pew also found that Muslim immigrants prefer more government services and that 70 percent lean Democratic.  Just 11 percent identify with Republicans.

Five Questions the Islamophile Establishment Can't Answer.  As our ancestors who fought it off for centuries clearly understood — and as current events remind us every day — Islam is evil.  If we don't have the courage to acknowledge that, evil will win.

Muslim Population Increasing Faster Than Entire World Population.  The Muslim population is the fastest-growing religious group in the world with adherents of Islam set to eclipse the number of Christians by the end of the century, according to the Pew research firm.  The disclosure of these statistics comes on the heels of a fierce national debate about Muslim immigration to the United States and the threat of potentially allowing terrorism-linked individuals to obtain citizenship.  The United States is expected to grant at least 660,000 green cards to immigrants from Muslim-majority nations within the next five years, according to statistics issued by the Department of Homeland Security.

'We are at war with militant Islam!' A rookie senator notes what many fear to say.  Have you felt frustrated, angered, maybe even frightened for yourself and family by the lack of credible leadership — real stand-up, follow-me leadership — from the so-called leaders of both political parties?  Has the thought crossed your mind that the two parties' leading candidates for president are not really up to the deadly serious task of commander-in-chief, of keeping our country safe.  Watch Ben Sasse in the video [in this article].  He's not running for anything.  He voices precisely what so many of us have been thinking and fearing and, occasionally, hoping.  Many in Washington will not like what he says.  Good!  Sasse is not attacking either of the you-know-who's or the other over-sized narcissist who addressed the country Sunday night.  He's a fellow American, simply laying out in clear, unvarnished candor the facts of where we as a nation are.  In danger, serious long-term danger.

Muslims have more DNC delegates than Montana, Utah and Oklahoma put together.  The number of Muslim delegates attending the Democratic National Convention has quadrupled since 2004.  Muslims had around 5 percent of the delegates in a Democratic Party convention for a country where they aren't even 1 percent of the population.

Liberals need to stop flattering Islam and ask tough questions instead.  Why do so many Muslims hate Americans to the point of wanting to massacre them in their offices as in 9/11 or at a Christmas Party at San Bernardino — despite the fact that the United States is the only major power in modern times to offer Muslims a helping hand when they needed it?

ISIS Inc: Extraordinary documents show terror group's masterplan for world domination.  Leaked internal documents have laid bare a staggeringly sophisticated level of administration imposed by ISIS in a bid to turn its self-declared caliphate into a legitimate state.  The terrorists have created departments to administer over the health, education and the treasury sectors, while it also holds 15-day annual refresher courses for its veteran soldiers.  The majority of the revelations come in a 24-page memo, shown to The Guardian, which was published in the months after the group announced its caliphate in mid-2014.

A Breathtaking Display of Weakness.  Keep in mind, a couple of weeks ago Barack Obama told the American people that there was no chance of there being a terrorist attack on our nation.  Thus, when the terrorist attack took place he refused to admit that he was wrong and took the coward's way out.  First, he indulged in some legalistic double talk and declared the ISIL was not an existential threat to America.  Second, he refused to say that the terrorist attack was terrorism.  His spokesman called it "a terrible act of violence."  Now, he has just barely been dragged kicking and screaming into saying that it was an act of terror — because his FBI said that it was — but he still cannot pronounce the word Islamist.  The Obama administration's craven response shows why people resort to terrorism.  After all, the purpose of terrorism is first to show that America's freedoms make it weak and ineffective, and second to garner respect for Islam.

Alabama Muslim woman among ISIS' most active recruiters.  According to a newly released study by George Washington University, an Alabama college student who abandoned her family to join the so called Islamic State is now among the terrorist group's most active recruiters in the United States, as a result of her active social media presence.  The report, ISIS in America: From Retweets to Raqqa, details ISIS' how ISIS is using social media to motivate existing supporters, and radicalize new ones.

Trump 100% Vindicated: CBS Reports 'Swarm' On Rooftops Celebrating 9/11.  If these celebrations did not occur, the only thing Trump did wrong was to believe the same media that is now calling him a liar — and doing so to cover up the truth about American Muslims celebrating 9/11 and their own covering up of that fact.

This Chilling Video Proves That Trump Was right About 9/11.  Evidence is coming to light that Trump was, in fact, right when he claimed that Muslims in America were celebrating the 9/11 attacks as they took place.  This video gives us some evidence to his claim, and their actions on that terrifying day are chilling!  [Video clip]

Turkey: Why Muslim Nations Shouldn't be Part of NATO.  When Turkey was admitted to NATO in 1952, the Cold War was ramping up and the nation was relatively secular.  Today, however, it's well known that Turkey has been Islamizing and that its president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, is an Islamic supremacist.  Also note that Turkey was the location of the last great Islamic caliphate, the Ottoman Empire.  And some think that just as Benito Mussolini wanted to resurrect the glories of the Roman Empire, Erdoğan and others want to reclaim the far more recent Ottoman dominance.

University of Chicago Surrenders to Jihad.  Assuming the threat is credible (and the FBI apparently thinks it is) there are a very small number of people who threatened to do something evil with a gun.  There are thousands of people that attend, either as students or employees, at UofC.  Tell them to bring their guns.  Want to try to playing Allah Akhbar or similar?  Go ahead when everyone around you is carrying.  It'll last 2 seconds and you'll get exactly one round off — maybe — before you're dropped where you stand.

Did New Jersey Muslims Celebrate On 9/11?  Occam's Razor suggests that when numerous people, using their first and last names in a public forum, and providing concrete details that can be checked, all provide similar accounts of public behavior, chances are they are telling the truth.  It is possible that all of these people, as Kim LaCapria suggests, are suffering from false memory syndrome, or are all attempting to whip up murderous hatred against Muslims, as Benjamin Wittes accuses, but neither LaCapria nor Wittes provides any support for their smears.  Cui bono directs us to consider "who benefits" from a statement.  New Jersey has one of the largest Muslim populations in the US, after Michigan.  New Jersey's Muslim population constitutes the second highest, by percent, in the US, after Illinois and above Michigan.  New Jersey Muslims wield political clout. [...] Muslim political clout may explain why so many empowered voices insist that the 9-11 celebrations never happened.

New Report Points To DC Media Cover-Up of 9/11 NJ Muslim Celebration.  Despite the corrupt DC Media's dishonest and highly-coordinated campaign to shut him down, Donald Trump's refusal to back up even a step has resulted in yet more proof of the media's ongoing cover-up of the almost certain fact that some number of American Muslims celebrated the collapse of the World Trade Center.

Islam, Jihad, and our Ignorance.  "Ignorance kills.  In war, ignorance brings defeat, especially for those who are sworn to support and defend us," writes Stephen Coughlin in his latest book Catastrophic Failure: Blindfolding America in the Face of Jihad.  Coughlin continues, "While ignorance is not a crime for the average person, it is for professionals concerning subject matter that is the object of their professions.  Why shouldn't this hold true for national security professionals?  For them, one requirement is that they know the enemy by undertaking real threat identification of entities that constitute actual threats to the Constitution and people of the United States."  The refusal to account for the doctrinal elements of Islam in our national security analyses constitutes the professional malpractice that Coughlin was alluding to as our threat doctrine has been reduced to strategic incomprehension and incoherence.

New York State launches anti-terror app to anonymously report suspicious-looking people without fear of appearing racist.  New Yorkers now have a new tool in the fight against terrorism — a smartphone app.  The app, dubbed 'See Something, Send Something', allows people across the state to send photos and information of suspicious-looking people and activities to officials with the tap of a screen.  They can do so anonymously, without the fear of appearing discriminatory.

The Editor says...
[#1] Is this a crime-fighting app or an anti-terror app?  In other words, is the app supposed to be used to report suspicious looking people in general, or just suspiciously Muslim-looking people?  [#2] This new app is of no value to those of us who are not tethered to a cell phone 24/7.  [#3]  At some point, Islamic terrorism is going to become so pervasive that the widespread fear of "profiling" suspicious people (based mostly on their appearance) will have to be discarded in favor of common sense and self-preservation.

It's time for Congress to declare war on ISIS.  After the terror in Paris, most Democrats and Republicans agree America should end the Islamic State.  So one might think Congress would get around to actually declaring war against the proto-state.  This hasn't happened.  Now some lawmakers are looking to reopen this debate.  Sen. Lindsey Graham, who is running for the Republican presidential nomination, said last week he would soon introduce a new war resolution against the Islamic State.

Can a Dying Civilization Defeat ISIS and Radical Islam?  Without question, our military is superior to any other on earth and we could inflict devastating damage to ISIS if we unleashed our military forces against them.  But we are not going to do that — not today, not next month and not after the next atrocity strikes Cleveland, Phoenix or Richmond. [...] Our secular culture is adrift in a sea of relativism, escapism, and self-indulgent inanities, with our media and entertainment elites leading the parade.

FBI using elite surveillance teams to track at least 48 high risk ISIS suspects.  With as many as 1,000 active cases, Fox News has learned at least 48 ISIS suspects are considered so high risk that the FBI is using its elite tracking squads known as the mobile surveillance teams or MST to track them domestically.  "There is a very significant number of people that are on suspicious watch lists, under surveillance," Republican Sen. Dan Coats said.  Coats, who sits on the Select Committee on Intelligence, would not comment on specifics, but said the around-the-clock surveillance is a major commitment for the bureau.

Belgium's a Breeding Ground of Islamic Terror.  Time was, thoughts of Belgium led to thoughts of rich, dark chocolate, of Old Master painters and delicate, handmade lace.  Now it brings a different image: of Islamic jihad and men armed with Kalashnikovs, and of secret meetings of Muslim youth plotting a new attack against the West.  The country is in lockdown today, facing what authorities believe is an "imminent attack."  On Sunday [11/22/2015], police raided 19 homes in and around Brussels, and made 16 arrests.  Brussels continues to be the focus of their action.  There is good reason for this.  The Nov. 13 massacres in Paris, we've since learned, were planned in the Brussels district of Molenbeek, sometimes called "little Morocco" for its large Moroccan immigrant population.

This is what whole-hearted military action looks like:
Russian airstrikes destroy 472 terrorist targets in Syria in 48 hours, 1,000 oil tankers in 5 days.  Russian airstrikes have torched more than 1,000 tankers taking stolen crude oil to Islamic State refineries.  This blow against the jihadists comes as the Russian Air Force has hit 472 terrorist targets in two days in Syria, making 141 sorties.

The West's Rude Houseguests.  The ex-wife of Ibrahim Abdeslam, who blew himself up in last Friday's Paris attacks, says he worked one whole day during their two-year marriage.  Instead of labor, he slept during business hours, watched DVDs, and smoked "alarming" amounts of marijuana every day while blaring Arabic rap music.  She told the Daily Mail, "We lived on unemployment benefit which was only €1,000 a month between us so we worried a lot about money."  When Abdeslam finally obtained gainful employment, he ran a drug den disguised as a bar.  "Ibrahim used to go to discos," one friend recalls.  "He would drink alcohol, smoke."

UN's COP21 sending message to ISIS?  Were it not for the blatant hypocrisy, it would be laughable that France is pledging "100% security within climate conference walls" for the United Nations COP21 event in Paris, being held in the aftermath of the November 13 terrorist attacks.  Why would ISIS descend upon the Global Warming Poohbahs of 195 nations when their leaders have already sent out the capital letter-message that it is definitely global warming — and not Islamic terrorism — that is the world's biggest threat?

In the first majority-Muslim U.S. city, residents tense about its future.  Earlier this month, the blue-collar city that has been home to Polish Catholic immigrants and their descendents for more than a century became what demographers think is the first jurisdiction in the nation to elect a majority-Muslim council.  It's the second tipping for Hamtramck (pronounced Ham-tram-ik), which in 2013 earned the distinction of becoming what appears to be the first majority-Muslim city in the United States following the arrival of thousands of immigrants from Yemen, Bangladesh and Bosnia over a decade.

Terror expert tells of the slave markets, summary executions and 'morality' police of the jihadi group — who have $2 trillion in the bank.  It is a force the like of which the world has never seen before:  a medieval death cult with a territory roughly the size of England.  Its tentacles of power stretch out across Iraq and Syria, whose border it has erased.  Syrian Raqqa is the de facto capital, Iraqi Mosul its most populous centre.  Within its brutal control lies a huge population of eight million — and it has assets estimated at $2 trillion.  This is the Islamic State, sometimes called ISIS, a terrorist movement with the destructive power of an army possessed by a terrifying vision of the world to come.

Imam Who Issued Fatwa Against Islam Critic Got DOJ Contract, Holds Peace Prayer for Paris.  A radical imam quietly hired by the Obama administration to teach Muslim federal prisoners is holding a "peace and unity prayer" to denounce the Paris terrorist attacks at the same mosque that he was ousted from years ago for issuing a fatwa against an author critical of Islam.  The Egyptian-born imam, Fouad ElBayly, was forced to step down from the Islamic Center of Johnstown in Windber, Pennsylvania several years ago after publicly stating that an ex-Muslim critic of Islam should receive the death penalty.  The woman, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, is a Somali-born activist who has long called for the reform of Islam to stop the radicals behind terrorist attacks and nations being run by Sharia law.

Obama Presides Over the Death of Globalism.  What happened in Paris, said President Obama, "was an attack on all of humanity and the universal values that we share."  And just what might those "universal values" be?  At a soccer game between Turkey and Greece in Istanbul, Turks booed during the moment of silence for the Paris dead and chanted "Allahu Akbar."  Among 1.6 billion Muslims, hundreds of millions do not share our values regarding women's rights, abortion, homosexuality, free speech, or the equality of all religious faiths.  Set aside the fanatics of ISIS.  Does Saudi Arabia share Obama's views and values regarding sexual freedom and the equality of Christianity, Judaism and Islam?  Is anything like the First Amendment operative across the Sunni or Shiite world, or in China?

ISIS Has a Help Desk for Terrorists Staffed Around the Clock.  ISIS is using a 24-hour Jihadi Help Desk to help spread its message, recruit followers and launch more attacks on foreign soil, NBC News reports.  The help desk manned by a half-dozen senior operatives was established to help would-be jihadists use encryption and other secure communications to avoid detection by law enforcement and other agencies, counterterrorism analysts affiliated with the U.S. Army tell NBC News.

ISIS vs. Daesh vs. Islamic State: American Media Struggle With Yet Another Name For Terror Group.  If you caught U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Monday talking about the attacks in Paris, you might have heard him drop an unfamiliar word.  Promising to take the fight to the terrorists who claimed responsibility, Kerry called the group "Daesh," rather than the names everyone is used to, "ISIS" and "ISIL."  For over a year, French journalists have taken up this alternative name for the group, and the media frenzy following Friday's attacks raise the question of whether the U.S. press will follow suit.

Confronting the Real Enemy to Civilization.  Perhaps the sharia law on which Islamic doctrine rests may not be a fixed and monolithic entity, and that it differs in different societies.  Yet, most of the Muslim community is silent or has expressed little criticism of the murderous attacks in Paris.  Nor, in general, have many Muslims voiced their concern about the hostility of some in their religion to those critical of the intolerance of aspects of the religion.  All those critics, including courageous individuals such as Ibn Warraq, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Parvin Darabi, the Iranian-born female activist, and Salman Rushdie have been threatened physically.

There is no "radical Islam" and there is also no "moderate Islam".  Beginning more or less with 9/11, the expression "radical Islam" became the accepted way for the media, politicians and public to define the religious and ideological foundations of Islam-based violence when referring to what the world calls "terror."  This expression was meant to be contrasted with "moderate Islam" which presents Muslims as ordinary people who wish to live in peace with all of mankind — Christians, Jews, Buddhists, unbelievers and the rest of us.  The world created the image of two Islams, one radical and impossible to live with, and one moderate and "just like us."  This differentiation between "radical" and "moderate" Islam is what gave rise to the claim that Islam had been "hijacked" by the radicals, implying that the real and original Islam is the moderate, not the false, radical one.  This is what allows today's Europe to relate positively to the wave of mostly-Muslim illegal immigrants washing up on its shores — they represent "moderate Islam" and all they want is to live in peace and harmony with their European neighbors.  Permit me to raise some doubts concerning the psychological mindset that claims the existence of two types of Islam.

7 Shocking Facts About Islamic Immigration.  [#6] The U.S. Hosts the Largest Share of Refugees from High Risk Countries:  America has admitted 135,545 refugees from Iraq alone since FY 2007.  After admitting over 100,000 Somali refugees from 1993-2013, we are still bringing in up to 10,000 more each year.  Of the 15,470 Somali refugees brought in since fiscal year 2014, 99.7% have been Muslim.  Obama plans to bring in 15,000 more refugees from East Africa, despite the security problems we've been having with a segment of the Somali refugee population.  [#7] Sentiments of American Muslims:  According to a poll commissioned by the Center for Security Policy, 51% of Muslims living in America believe "Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to sharia."  Twenty-nine percent agree that violence against those who insult Mohammad is acceptable and 25% agree that violence against America can be justified as part of Global Jihad.

House Candidate Ends Campaign After Tweeting 'ISIS Isn't Necessarily Evil'.  A Democratic candidate for the state Legislature is quitting his campaign after tweeting this weekend that "ISIS isn't necessarily evil."  Dan Kimmel, of Burnsville, is giving up his run for a seat in the House after the online response to his tweet Saturday was swift, loud and negative.  The controversial tweet said:  "ISIS isn't necessarily evil.  It is made up of people doing what they think is best for their community.  Violence is not the answer, though."  The tweet has since been deleted.

Hamtramck is 1st American city to elect majority Muslim council.  The Polish flocked to Hamtramck in the 1900s and evidence of the city's Polish roots remain.  However, over the last few decades a new wave of immigrants, primarily from the Middle East, South Asia and Southeastern Europe, has dramatically changed the face and culture of this community.  Now, the Hamtramck City Council is going to reflect that diversity.

Why Islam is Not a Religion.  [Scroll down]  In Islam, worship is defined as obedience to Islam and since God is transcendent and we cannot know him, loving him is beside the point and is certainly not essential.  Obedience is everything.  This concept is also a major stumbling block to democracy because to obey man's law in Islamic thought is equivalent to the worship of man.  Now, while I would agree that the worship of man is broadly a characteristic of the modern world, especially if we look at the rise of science and its promise of omniscience and even omnipotence — that all things can be known and done through the agency of science[,] I vehemently disagree that the Islamic total belief system and total regulation of life is the answer to anything.  It is certainly not a way to grow closer to God.  It leads men away from God and focuses the mind on the material world alone from morning till night, day in and day out.  Islam is not the answer — Islam is the problem.

Spiritual Suicide: When European Churches Sell Their Souls to Islam.  At a time when Christians in the Middle East are being tortured, beheaded, and crucified rather than denying Jesus, Christians in Europe — I should say so-called Christians — are renouncing the Great Commission and removing the cross (literally) to make peace with Muslims.  What kind of madness is this?

The Problem of Inbreeding in Islam.  There is a dire phenomenon rising in Europe that is crippling entire societies and yet the continent sleeps, refusing not only to confront the destructive elephant in the room, but also to admit its very existence.  The troubling reality being referred to is the widespread practice of Muslim inbreeding and the birth defects and social ills that it spawns.  The tragic effect of the left's control of the boundaries of debate is that any discussion about vital issues such as these marks an individual as an "Islamophobe" and a "racist."  A person who dares to point at the pathology of inbreeding in the Muslim community is accused of whipping up hatred against Muslim people.  But all of this could not be further from the truth.  To fight against inbreeding anywhere is to defend humanity and to defend innocent babies from birth defects.  Fighting against this Islamic practice stems from a pro-Muslim calling, since identifying destructive ideologies and practices in Islam enables the protection of the Muslim people from harm.

Muslim engineer at U.S. defense contractor gets 8 years for giving details on U.S. jets to Iran.  "He not only minimizes his criminal conduct but genuinely fails to understand the significance of his actions, and that is especially troubling," said U.S. District Judge Vanessa Bryant.  How does she know he doesn't understand the significance of his actions?  Meanwhile, we can be sure that U.S. defense contractor Pratt & Whitney didn't think twice about hiring a dual U.S.-Iranian citizen, and never thought of questioning him about his loyalties.  That would have been "Islamophobic."

Taxpayers should not be funding this anti-American hate-spewer.  With the fierce Twitter tirades she routinely unleashes against ideological foes — particularly American patriots and supporters of Israel — Linda Sarsour could be the scariest political player you may never have heard of.  Until now.  Sarsour, a Muslim activist and ally of Mayor Bill de Blasio, blasted into the mainstream in August with a fawning profile published in The New York Times headlined:  "Linda Sarsour is a Brooklyn Homegirl in a Hijab."

Caliphate so depleted it is recruiting disabled children to killing army.  The crazed jihadis are now sending children as young as SIX to the frontline as they reel from huge losses inflicted by Russian airstrikes and mass desertion.  ISIS commanders are scraping the bottom of the barrel as panic sets in, with more and more adult fighters abandoning the terrorist group.

Muslim inbreeding.  Inbreeding is common in Islamic culture.  It's been going on since Mohammed sanctioned first-cousin marriages 1,400 years ago.  I guess there's nothing like getting marriage advice handed down from one generation to the next that originated with a lunatic pedophile.  PJ Media reports that because Mohammed encouraged inbreeding, many Muslims regard intermarriage as part of their religion.  First-cousin marriages are also viewed as a source of social status, as a means of keeping wealth within the family, and as a form of control.  In addition, it is a vehicle to safeguard families against the influence of non-Muslim outsiders, which contributes to insular communities that do not integrate into Western society.

Hundreds of Muslims Pray In Parliament Square, London.  Hundreds of Muslims flocked to Parliament Square today [10/9/2015] under the guise of acting against climate change.  The demonstration saw a speech by an Imam, about how Muslims have a duty to try to "make Britain a better place".  Breitbart London was on the scene to witness Friday afternoon prayers in what was a clearly male-female segregated meeting in a public space.

An Islamic Fifth Column At Work Inside America.  In berating GOP presidential hopeful Ben Carson for suggesting a loyalty test for Muslims seeking high office, CNN host Jake Tapper maintained that he doesn't know a single observant Muslim-American who wants to Islamize America.  "I just don't know any Muslim-Americans — and I know plenty — who feel that way, even if they are observant Muslims," he scowled.  Tapper doesn't get out much.  If he did, chances are he'd run into some of the 51% of Muslims living in the U.S. who just this June told Polling Co. they preferred having "the choice of being governed according to Shariah," or Islamic law.  Or the 60% of Muslim-Americans under 30 who told Pew Research they're more loyal to Islam than America.

Muslim 'Foreign Policy Analyst' Tries to Frame Carson, Trump, and Cruz for Murder Before the Fact.  On CNN Monday [9/28/2015], "foreign policy analyst" Rula Jebreal said that Ben Carson, Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) would have "blood on their hands" if someone shot people at a mosque.  "Foreign policy analyst" — this is a media-speak euphemism for Muslim bullies and Islamic supremacist thugs who mean to impose the sharia (do not criticize Islam) by wrecking ball.  In Muslim countries, if you say anything that violates sharia blasphemy law, you are assassinated.  In the West, the running dogs in the media assassinate your good name, your good character.

Minnesota leads the nation in would-be ISIL terrorists from U.S., report finds.  Minnesota leads the nation in the number of people who have left or sought to leave the country to fight with terrorists aligned with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant in Syria, according to a scathing congressional report that says the U.S. and western countries have failed to disrupt the flow of combatants to the Middle East.  Released Tuesday [9/29/2015] by the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security, the report specifically cites two Somali-American Minnesotans who joined or tried to join ISIL, highlighting its online recruiting success through peer-to-peer recruiting that relies on social media and sophisticated online messaging techniques.

King of Jordan at UN: Struggle Against 'Outlaws of Islam' Is a 'Third World War'.  "All of us here are united by our conviction that these forces must be defeated," the Jordanian King said.  "What would our world look like" in a future involving "mass-murder, public beheadings," and rampant slavery, he asked.  "I have called this crisis a third world war, and I believe we must respond with equal intensity.  That means global collective actions on all fronts," Abdullah said, adding that all nations must also engage in the ideological war against extremists.

Mainstream Islamic Doctrine: Build a Caliphate.  The vast majority of Westerners — especially Americans — are completely ignorant of Islamic doctrine.  When Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi claimed the title Caliph and declared the Islamic State in June 2014, many ignorant observers assumed that the establishment of the Caliphate was something that only "radicals" and "extremists" sought.  That isn't true.  A study of Islamic doctrine based on the Islamic trilogy — the Quran, the Hadith and the Sirah — reveals that it is a doctrinal tenet of Islam that Muslims are supposed to work for the establishment of the worldwide Islamic state so that Allah's law reigns supreme everywhere.

On Islam, Ben Carson Is Right and Charles Krauthammer Is Wrong.  [Scroll down]  Ben Carson did not say Muslims are unfit to hold public office.  He said he does not think a Muslim should be president.  "Congress," he elaborated, "is a different story."  He might very well vote for a Muslim to serve in the legislature, with the caveat that it would depend on "who that Muslim is and what their policies are" — same as with anyone "of any faith."  If we are to explore the Constitution as a didactic document, the distinction Carson draws between the presidency and other high offices is worth pondering.  It reflects the actual reasoning of the framers — which had nothing to do with keeping faith out of the voting booth.

MD: Muslims buying houses from city to 'carve out a Muslim community'.  Masjid Al-Haq is located on 514 Islamic Way.  It is the largest Masjid in Baltimore City.  Out of state Muslim visitors are often pleasantly surprised at the masjid's fitting street address.  But for the masjid's leadership, one street is not enough.  Still in the planning phases, the Masjid Al-Haq community is poised to purchase and renovate dozens of abandoned and foreclosed row houses within walking distance of the masjid, carving out a Muslim community in West Baltimore just blocks from the epicenter of this year's riots in the city.  That is, if they can raise the funds.

Offended Muslims Erupt on School board.  A school-board meeting in New Jersey descended into chaos when a room full of angry Muslim parents were denied a last-minute request by its members.  Tempers were so raw last Thursday [9/17/2015] when the Jersey City Board of Education decided not to close schools for the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha that officials had to order security to "take charge."  The holiday falls on Sept. 24.  "We're going to be the majority soon!" said one woman into a microphone, WNBC-TV reported Sept. 17.

'We're going to be the majority soon!' Furious Muslim parents taunt New Jersey school board over religious holiday closure.  Tempers flared at a school board meeting in New Jersey when a room crowded with Muslim parents learned that schools will remain open during Thursday's [9/24/2015] religious holiday of Eid al-Adha.  Several of the Muslim parents and children screamed in rage and openly wept when the board announced its decision.  At one point, a young woman in a purple head scarf took the microphone and told them:  'We're no longer the minority, that's clear from tonight.  We're going to be the majority soon.'

Once deemed too dangerous to release, Saudi detainee at Guantanamo Bay prison has been repatriated.  A Saudi detainee and a longtime hunger striker at the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, who was once deemed too dangerous to release has been repatriated, U.S. officials said Tuesday [9/22/2015].  A military review board in June cleared Abdul Rahman Shalabi, 39, for release.  The board said that the effectiveness of the Saudi rehabilitation program that he is to enter and the country's ability to monitor him were important factors in its decision.

Blackwater founder: We could have fought ISIS if Obama hadn't 'crushed my old business'.  Founder of the controversial private security contractor Blackwater claimed Friday [9/18/2015] that the organization could have successfully combated militant group Islamic State if the Obama administration had not "crushed my old business."  Erik Prince said in front of the conservative group Maverick PAC that his infamous private military firm — synonymous with the contracting bonanza that ensued after the US invasion of Iraq in 2003 — would have effectively fought Islamic State (known as ISIS or ISIL), allowing the US to hold back its military in itsoffensive againstthe group's strongholds in Iraq and Syria.

Washington Post Quotes Taqiyya Merchants Against Ben Carson on Taqiyya.  The lockstep media prohibits the discussion of jihad and sharia, in accordance with Islamic law governing speech (do not criticize Islam).  An exception is made, of course, when someone in the public eye breaks this universal law of the American press and the Muslim world.  Then all hell breaks loose.  Islamic supremacists and their apologists clear their news agendas and stories for the day and go to work to school America on "peaceful Islam."  Recklessly stepping over the millions of victims of jihadi wars, land appropriations, cultural annihilations and enslavements, shrugging off the Quranic texts and teachings that mandate slaughter, gender apartheid, creed apartheid, Islamic Jew-hatred and more, leftist media shills devote lavish attention to assuring the public that Islam is benign, peaceful, and tolerant, and that you should trust them, not your lying eyes.

Carson's Right — Islam is Incompatible with the Constitution.  Speaking on NBC's "Meet The Press" on Sunday [9/20/2015], Dr. Ben Carson was asked if a president's religious beliefs mattered.  He said they did, and, when pressed on the issue, said no Muslim should be President of the United States (insert Obama joke here) and that in fact Islam is in conflict with the U.S. Constitution: [...] Ben Carson is right.  So says Syrian Islamic scholar Abd Al-Karim Bakkar who said in 2009 that democracy and Islam are like matter and anti-matter in physics: [...] Under Islam and Shari Law, there is no freedom of religion or speech and equal rights are forbidden to women and non-Muslims.  If you should convert to Christianity, you have signed your death warrant.

The Empty Outrage About Ben Carson.  Fresh from the Kim Davis controversy, during which liberals took the position that traditional Christians should no longer hold the government office of marriage clerk, liberals are denouncing Ben Carson for "bigotry" against Muslims.  They piously quote the Constitution's line from Article VI that "no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States."  Of course, Carson never denied that Muslim Americans are eligible to run for office.  He simply said that he wouldn't vote for one who supported Sharia law.  America's founding fathers would have agreed.

CAIR helps prove Ben Carson's point.  Ibrahim Hooper of the loathsome Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has called for Ben Carson to withdraw from the presidential race.  He cites Dr. Carson's comment that "I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation; I absolutely would not agree with that."  I don't subscribe to the sweeping proposition that a Muslim shouldn't be president of the United States.  But CAIR is Exhibit A for the proposition that certain Muslims, including any who don't denounce CAIR, shouldn't be president.

Ben Carson Fires Back, Schools Media on Islam, Sharia, and Taqiyya.  Republican presidential hopeful Ben Carson is standing by his view that a Muslim should not be president of the United States, telling The Hill in an interview on Sunday [9/20/2015] that whoever takes the White House should be "sworn in on a stack of Bibles, not a Koran."

Frank Gaffney Defends Dr. Ben Carson: Sharia Law Antithetical to U.S. Constitution.  Frank Gaffney, founder and President of the Center for Security Policy in Washington D.C., defended 2016 presidential hopeful Dr. Ben Carson for saying Sunday [9/20/2015] on Meet The Press that he "would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation."

A Muslim should not be elected as president of the United States, nor should a Muslim be put in charge of security at any airport.

Should anyone with any belief system be president?  Vying for the highest office in the land isn't a free-for-all when it comes to candidates' values.  If their vision is not anchored to our Constitution, with liberty at its core, they can transform this country into something unrecognizable.  America will cease to be America.  Indeed, that is what is unfolding under Barack Obama.  So a candidate's values are essential.  If those values stem from one's religious beliefs, fine.  The central concern is that they be in line with our Constitution.  And Islam is way out of alignment with our Constitution, because Islam is a totalitarian ideology that mandates world domination.  Toward that end, all non-believers (and a hefty dose of believers) must be forced to live as second-class citizens (at best) or be killed.  Islam is a political as well as a theological system, with tyranny at its core.

Muslim Day Parade 2015.  Virtually stripped of all political street theater it was smaller than any other parade over the last several years.  No black flags of jihad flying, no blood-drenched Muslim Brotherhood photo displays or white-robed, somber women trucked down the avenue in a cage.  Gone was the female effigy swinging from a noose, overseen by thugs dressed up like thugs brandishing 'play' automatic weapons, and whip-cracking 'Pharoahs' being pulled on chariots by demonstrators dressed at Egyptian military etc.  Absent of any spectacle, one might almost have to ask:  'Was it really even a Muslim Day Parade?'  Also missing from the march were children from various private Muslim schools as well as certain mosques throughout the city quite notable by their omission.  But after of all the controversy the parade generated over the last couple of years it is not surprising that they tamped down on their radicals and put them out of sight.

Man sentenced in food stamp and tax fraud; had sent money to family in Yemen.  The owner of a Southside Birmingham grocery store was sentenced Thursday [9/10/2015] to three years and a month in federal prison for his guilty plea to one count of tax fraud and one count of food stamp fraud totaling more than $1.6 million.  Sufyan Hazem Saleh, 33, of Birmingham, was ordered by U.S. District Judge R. David Proctor to serve three years on supervised probation after his release.  Saleh is to report to prison Dec. 9, the judge stated.  Saleh also was among those arrested in June in a state food stamp fraud roundup.  That probe, dubbed Operation T-bone, targeted those they law enforcement say cheated the food stamp system out of hundreds of thousands of dollars and sent at least some of the profits via wire transfer to Yemen.

Minnesota Muslim on no-fly list "fascinated and enthralled" by jihad.  "People who don't implement Sharia, even if they're Muslim, they're considered infidels and we should kill them and we should defend our lands and implement Sharia."

Expediting National Suicide with 'Refugees'.  [Scroll down]  Numbers aside, the issue of Syrian refugees must be put into a larger context.  (And, just for the record, the word refugees really should be put in quotes, as will be explained later.)  First, everyone must ask why so many Islamic nations are refusing these refugees. [...] No doubt this fear of importing terrorists is sincere, if not also ironic coming from countries that enforce Sharia law.  But there is likely another factor at play, which is hijrah, the Islamic doctrine of immigration whereby societies are overwhelmed with Muslims such that Muslims become the dominant force.  Immigration jihad.

Europe's death knell.  Approximately 104,460 asylum seekers arrived in Germany during the month of August, setting a new record.  That makes 413,535 registered refugees and migrants coming to Germany in 2015 so far.  The country expects a total of around 800,000 people to seek asylum in Germany this year.  And that's just Germany.  The entire continent of Europe is being inundated with refugees at a rate unprecedented in world history.  This is no longer just a "refugee crisis."  This is a hijrah. [...] To emigrate in the cause of Allah — that is, to move to a new land in order to bring Islam there, is considered in Islam to be a highly meritorious act.  "And whoever emigrates for the cause of Allah will find on the earth many locations and abundance," says the Qur'an.

Islamists and the Democrat Party: Co-belligerents in the War on America.  It should surprise no one that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has joined the Black Lives Matter movement.  It is logical that CAIR, the unindicted co-conspirator in the prosecution of the Holy Land Foundation for providing support to the terrorist group Hamas, should join a group which has contributed to an atmosphere of violent incitement and hatred against police officers across the nation.  While Islamic radicals seek to rid the world of heresies and of the infidels who practice them, leftists desire to purge society of the vices allegedly spawned by capitalism — those being racism, sexism, imperialism, and greed.  Although their motivations are different, fundamentalist Islam and the radical political left are both devoted to totalitarianism, have a shared hatred of Western civilization and Judeo-Christian democracy and they are equally determined to extinguish liberty and subjugate the individual, either to Sharia or the state.

Nine Signs of the Impending American Collapse.  Open-door immigration, a consequence of programmatic multiculturalism conceived as a social good and justified by the contentless mantra of "diversity," is a surefire source of disorder, tension and sporadic episodes of violence.  Indeed, the incursion of Islam into the West is nothing less than the latest installment of the millennial campaign to subvert and conquer the liberal democracies of the developed world.  The Islamic doctrine of hijra or migration, emulating Mohammad's journeys to Medina (originally Yathrib) and Abyssinia, is being re-enacted before our noses.  The evidence is all around us and is so convincing that only the deluded, the cowed or the complicit can deny or cosmeticize or facilitate its progress.

Scientists Say Oldest Koran is Older than Muhammad's Lifetime, Reveals False Religion of Islam.  In a discovery that could destroy Islam's claims of legitimacy, scientists and historians in England have discovered a Koran that scientists date to between 568 AD and 654 AD making it the oldest Koran in existence.  But the newly dated manuscript actually pre-dates the years during which Muslims claim their prophet Muhammad lived and that would mean that the whole religion is built on false claims.

Minnesota terror suspect gets a Class A trucking license.  A Minnesota man, who Homeland Security identifies as a terror suspect who is on the "No Fly" list, now has his Class A commercial license, which will allow him to drive semi-trucks.  The FOX 9 Investigators revealed last May that Amir Meshal was attempting to get his Class A license from a South St. Paul Truck Driving School.  The $4,000 tuition was paid for through the state workforce program.

Is this really the best idea?  Worry not though, because the man on the U.S. no-fly list might not be focused on driving big rigs all the time.  That's because he's trying to be licensed to drive school buses: [...]

Building an Islamic State in America, One Church at a Time.  Across Europe, thousands of churches have closed and many of them have become mosques.  The St. Mark's Cathedral in London survived Nazi bombers in WW2, but fell to a new invasion and became the New Peckham Mosque.  In France, where there are now more Muslims than practicing Catholics, the Islamic colonists demanded that thousands of empty churches be turned into mosques. [...] Islam is conquering Europe.  It is also conquering America.  In Syracuse, New York, the Holy Trinity Catholic Church has become a mosque.  Despite the church being protected by the Landmark Preservation Board, its crosses were cut down and painted over.

Report: High-ranking Amnesty International employee linked to Hamas, terrorism.  A report from the London Times has revealed that a senior employee of Amnesty International failed to disclose ties to Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood, and the greater global Islamist network.  Yasmin Hussein, 51, was until recently head of Amnesty's international advocacy division, and played an active role in the charity's advocacy at the United Nations.  An investigation into Hussein's connections uncovered ties to "a secretive network of global Islamists" both through her husband, who was investigated for working closely with the Muslim Brotherhood, and via her activities with a UK-based aid agency that was banned from Israel for their alleged support of Hamas terrorism.

The Somali Mafia: Grooming and Pimping in Minnesota.  This case is eerily reminiscent of the "grooming and pimping" trials now underway in various parts of England.  It seems to be less extensive, however, and maybe less debased, than its British counterparts.  And the American version involves Somalis, and not Pakistanis.  How is it that people from such diverse cultures could engage in the same depraved behavior?  What could they possibly have in common?  I can't think of a thing.  However, based on the two sets of mug shots in the MPR article, this case seems to have a Mohammed Coefficient of 17% (unless you count "Ahmed" as a version of "Mohammed", as some scholars do, and then it's higher).  The gang operated in multiple locations, not just in Minnesota, so the trial is taking place in Tennessee.

Hundreds of Muslim refugees headed to Idaho.  The multicultural transformation of Idaho will continue with a planned infusion of hundreds of refugees from Muslim countries over the next one to three years.  A local newspaper in Twin Falls reported that city will receive 300 mostly Syrian refugees over the next fiscal year starting Oct. 1.  But WND has learned the numbers will be much larger statewide and include refugees from Syria, Iraq, the Democratic Republic of Congo and possibly Somalia.

Official: Two former Guantanamo detainees arrested in Belgium.  Two former detainees at the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba were arrested by Belgian police in a counterterrorism operation targeting a recruiting network for al Qaeda in Syria.  They were arrested Wednesday night [7/22/2015] along with three others as they were about to break into a house to raise funds in the town of Hoboken, near Antwerp, a senior Belgian counterterrorism official told CNN.

Former Gen. Clark: Put radicalized Americans in internment camps.  Former U.S. Army General Wesley Clark suggested that "radicalized" Americans should be put in internment camps.  "In World War II, if someone supported Nazi Germany at the expense of the United States, we didn't say that was freedom of speech, we put them in a camp.  They were prisoners of war," Clark said on MSNBC late last week.  Clark proposed the idea after the Chattanooga shooting in which Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez allegedly killed four marines and a sailor.

Niqabs and Burqas as Security Threats.  The niqab and burqa both should be banned on security grounds, because one cannot allow faceless and bodyless persons walking the streets, driving cars, and otherwise making use of public spaces; the dangers are too great.  This blog focuses on specific dangers, especially in the West (where reporting is better), of the niqab, burqa, and other Islamic coverings as a disguise for criminal and terrorist purposes.

What's the difference between a hijab, niqab and burka?  Hijab, niqab, burka — there are lots of different kinds of coverings worn by Muslim women all over the world.  Some wear a headscarf to cover their head and hair, while others wear a burka or niqab, which also covers up their face.  Headscarves are seen as a sign of modesty, and a symbol of religious faith.  But how can you tell which one is which?

How Twitter Can Get You Killed.  The war being waged online is breathtaking.  Not only are the likes of ISIS running wild in cyberspace, there are all other kinds of hijinks as well.  The Saudi government is bogged down in a hashtag war with allies of ISIS recruiting suicide bombers.  Meanwhile, Russian hackers are posing as a "cyber caliphate" to cover their online mayhem.  While the online world is on fire, the White House is acting like it has got everything under control.

Five Questions Every Presidential Candidate Should Answer: Islamonazi Edition.  [#1] The US has been at war with al Qaeda for 14 years and hasn't won yet.  What will you do differently?

How Islam Got its American Privileges.  [Scroll down]  Religions in America traded theocracy for religious freedom.  They gave up being able to impose their practices on others in exchange for being able to freely practice their own religions.  Islam rejects religious freedom.  It exploits it to remove the freedom of belief and practice of others.  When it cannot do so through religious protection laws, it does so through claims of bigotry.  Religions were not meant to be immunized from blasphemy because that is theocracy.  Instead religions are protected from restrictions, rather than from criticism.  Islam insists on being protected from both.  It makes no concessions to the freedom of others while demanding maximum religious accommodation. [...] Islam is a privileged religion.  And there's a word for that.  Theocracy.

How Islam Got its American Privileges.  What is Islam? The obvious dictionary definition answer is that it's a religion, but legally speaking it actually enjoys all of the advantages of race, religion and culture with none of the disadvantages.  Islam is a religion when mandating that employers accommodate the hijab, but when it comes time to bring it into the schools, places that are legally hostile to religion, American students are taught about Islam, visit mosques and even wear burkas and recite Islamic prayers to learn about another culture.  Criticism of Islam is denounced as racist even though the one thing that Islam clearly isn't is a race.  Islamist organizations have figured out how lock in every advantage of race, religion and culture, while expeditiously shifting from one to the other to avoid any of the disadvantages.

'Mecca has been turned into Disneyland'.  [Scroll down]  Though the city has been remade again and again in the image of whatever power was dominant at the time, its current custodians, who look to Houston as a model, have done more harm than any predecessors.  Having bulldozed the last of the buildings that gave Mecca any architectural distinction, they have erected "a grotesque metropolis", an "eruption of architectural bling".

Ted Cruz Stands Alone Against Shariah In America.  [O]ne of the fundamental national security issues that unites America's country class of all political stripes is the recognition that the "Islamization" of America and Muslim demands for special treatment and government recognition of their Shariah religious laws represent an existential threat to liberty under the Constitution.  A leader of the opposition to this threat and an early advocate of confronting it is Kevin Kookogey, a former chairman of the Williamson County Tennessee Republican Party, whom Senator Cruz has just named his campaign chairman for the State of Tennessee.

Baby Jihad.  [Scroll down]  For a better idea of what is in store for Europe, simply look to the UK's "Londonistan" — the apt name for London and other regions with a notable Muslim presence:  Already with a 10 percent Muslim population, Londonistan is a reflection of Europe 35 years from now when it too is projected to be ten percent Muslim (and by which time the UK will likely have an even much larger Muslim population).  The same sorts of anti-infidel violence and sexual abuse that is a daily fixture in Muslim majority nations is already a normal feature of Londonistan with its mere 10 percent Muslim minority.

Where are Those Moderate Muslims — and How Should We Deal with Them?  Eleven months before 9/11, I heard a series of lectures from a Muslim doctor to a Protestant congregation, in which he contradicted much of what I had learned about the religion's history and foundation when I had studied it and lived abroad among Muslims two to three decades earlier.  For example, he assured the credulous audience that Islam had never been spread by the sword, but rather that was a Western canard.  Already extremely concerned about militant Islam, I started reading updated works on the ideology.  It didn't take me long to realize that my prior understanding hadn't been superseded by new discoveries.  At best, the pious doctor was offering a positive spin on Islam; more likely he was actually, deliberately engaging in taqiyya — righteous deception to advance Islam.  With the attacks of 9/11, I began an extensive, deliberate effort to understand the religion and the violence that it was spewing.

How Islam in America Became a Privileged Religion.  What is Islam? The obvious dictionary definition answer is that it's a religion, but legally speaking it actually enjoys all of the advantages of race, religion and culture with none of the disadvantages.  Islam is a religion when mandating that employers accommodate the hijab, but when it comes time to bring it into the schools, places that are legally hostile to religion, American students are taught about Islam, visit mosques and even wear burkas and recite Islamic prayers to learn about another culture.  Criticism of Islam is denounced as racist even though the one thing that Islam clearly isn't is a race.

Islamic State recruits Westerners with promise of Muslim utopia.  The Islamic State is building a terrorist society complete with medical centers, central kitchens, weapons factories, oil companies and schools, according to an analysis of the group's copious social media dispatches.  And it is waging a slick media campaign to staff those institutions.  On Twitter and elsewhere, it depicts its land conquests as the Muslim promised land.  The message is aimed at enticing educated Westerners from Europe, Canada and the U.S. to come to Iraq and Syria to run what leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi calls a caliphate, or Islamic State.

Minneapolis Terror 'Deradicalization' Program Fails After Just Months, 'Test Case' Back in Jail.  A terror deradicalization program — established in the "Ground Zero" of terror recruitment, Minnesota's Twin Cities — has already failed after just a few months.  The program was established after a federal court released 19-year-old terror suspect Abdullahi Yusuf to a halfway house earlier this year.  Federal prosecutors opposed Yusuf's release, but were overruled by the federal judge in the case, Michael J. Davis, the Chief Judge of the District of Minnesota.  Today, Yusuf again sits in jail, having violated the terms of his release.

Welcome to the Party, Pal: Like it or not, you are on the front lines of the Islamic War.  Islam is not a religion.  It is a cult constructed around the so-called prophet Mohammad and his assertion that the Koran was the word of Allah.  The name Islam means "submission" and the purpose of Islam is the tyrannical control over the entire world's population.  Within this allegedly holy faith, two sects, Shiites and Sunnis, have been at war almost from its inception, never failing to kill one another en masse.  The turmoil in the Middle East is the direct result of this murderous cult and those Muslims who oppose the killing that flows from Islam must keep their silence or become its victims.  Jews and Christians can speak out and debate about aspects of their faiths, but Muslims risk death when they do so.  For those Jews in Christians living in Middle Eastern nations, death is always a prospect for no other reason than not being Muslim.

Islam: An Ideology of Lethal Absurdities.  Daniel Greenfield wrote on FrontPage about the absurdity of the news media in accusing Pamela Geller and Bosch Fawstin of encouraging violence by conducting a drawing Mohammad contest and inviting others to the event:  ["]"The actual attempt at mass slaughter was dismissed as the terrorists 'take the bait' from the cartoonists who had been fiendishly plotting to be mass slaughtered by them for the publicity."["]  But, this is the actual motive of Islamic terrorists; they are fiends looking for "bait" to take in order to be killed by their intended victims (or by a lone policeman, as in Garland) so their names can be publicized as "martyrs for Allah."  The only time terrorist outfits like ISIS, Al Qaeda, et al. value and recognize such self-sacrificing fools (aka "brothers") is when they're dead.  This policy reduces the average jihadist to the level of a passive receptor, or a human lemming, who just can't help himself for wanting to die, of seeking immediate if not eventual death.

ISIS: Potentially 'Thousands' of Online Followers Inside US Homeland, FBI Chief Warns.  There may be as many as thousands of people inside the United States consuming online "poison" from ISIS alone, and, "I know there are other Elton Simpsons out there," FBI director James Comey warned today, referring to one of the men who opened fire outside of an event in Texas earlier this week celebrating artists' portrayals of the Prophet Mohammad.

FBI Chief Comey: 'Thousands' of Online ISIS Followers Here in the U.S..  FBI Director James Comey warned today that "there are other Elton Simpsons out there," referring to one of the jihadists who tried to shoot up an art show featuring cartoons of Mohammad.  "We have a very hard task" in trying to identify and stop anyone inspired to launch an attack inside the U.S. homeland, Comey told ABC News' Pierre Thomas and a small group of reporters.

Gitmo Terrorist Freed in Canada.  His name is Omar Ahmed Khader and he's a member of Canada's "first family of terror," according to an international news report that confirms Khader's father was an associate of Osama Bin Laden who moved his family to Pakistan to support the Afghan mujahideen in its war against the Soviet Union.  In 2010 Khader was convicted of five war crimes, including throwing a grenade that killed Army Sergeant Christopher Speer in Afghanistan during a 2002 combat operation.  Khader spent around a decade at the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and in 2010 cut a deal to serve the majority of his sentence in Canada.

Islamo-Fascism and the War Against the Jews.  [David] Horowitz and [Robert] Spencer perform an important service in drawing attention to this document and to the political campaign that it has inspired.  The memo called for the creation of front organizations including the Muslim American Society, the Muslim Students Association, and the Islamic Society of North America, the Islamic Circle of North America, the Islamic Association for Palestine and the parent group of the Council on American-Islamic Relations or CAIR.  Another front group identified in the Holy Land memo was the International Institute for Islamic Thought, said to have invented the term "Islamophobia."

Lindsey Graham: 'We are at war' and must kill Islamic extremists.  Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said Friday [4/10/2015] that the Obama administration has left the nation vulnerable to an attack, and urged those who turned out for the NRA's annual meeting to make sure that the next president takes the fight to Islamic militants.

Arabic: Most Common Language of Refugees in America.  According to the Refugee Processing Center, the State Department documents that the most common spoken language among refugees in America is Arabic.  Out of the 11,300 refugees admitted to the U.S. this fiscal year, 4,430 speak Arabic.  The Center for Immigration Studies noted the nation's legal and illegal immigrant population hit a record 41.3 million in the summer of 2013 — up 1.4 million since July 2010.  The number of refugees and immigrants from the Middle East increased 13 percent between 2010 and 2013.

Arabic is the Most Common Language of Refugees in America; 91% on Food Stamps.  They also skip the paper work and go right to the welfare line.  Funded by a government who loots its citizens.  Taxation for Islamization.  Impeach Obama and every criminal in Congress.

Iran's Ayatollah: Introduce Youth of America, Europe to 'the Islam of Jihad'.  In a speech translated into English and posted on his official website, Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, told Iran's "Assembly of Experts" last week that "our goal and main guideline should be to pursue Islam in its entirety."  "What we understand from all Quranic teachings is that Islam commands Muslims to create a perfect and complete Islamic government," said the Supreme Leader.  "Islam wants the complete implementation of Islam."

Anonymous Sees 9,200 ISIS-Linked Twitter Accounts.  Anonymous, an online "hacktivist" organization, released a list of 9,200 Twitter account handles it believes are linked to the Islamic State.  The release is part of [...] a movement to curb the terrorist organization's social media pull.

DNI: 2014 Was Deadliest Year for Terror Attacks in 45 Years.  Terrorist attacks and resulting deaths increased sharply last year, according to statistics made public Thursday [2/26/2015] by the director of national intelligence.  "When the final counting is done, 2014 will have been the most lethal year for global terrorism in the 45 years such data has been compiled," DNI Director James Clapper told Congress, adding that about half of all attacks took place in three states:  Iraq, Pakistan, and Afghanistan.  Last year from January to September, around 13,000 terror attacks were carried out, killing 31,000 people.  By contrast, in 2013, 22,000 people were killed in terrorist violence in over 11,500 attacks, Clapper disclosed during a wide-ranging world threat briefing before the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Farage: The 'Dramatic Failure' Of Multiculturalism Drives Radical Islam.  Why are thousands of European Muslims flocking to radical Islam? According to UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage, "state sponsored multiculturalism" deserves much of the blame for why extremism has found a home in Europe.  "We [the U.K.] have pursued a policy for nearly four decades now of multiculturalism," Farage told The Daily Caller Thursday [2/26/2015].  "We have encouraged division.  Rather than having different communities coming together, under one law, we have encouraged division."  "That policy I think has been a dramatic failure," the Member of European Parliament (MEP) added.

Iran pursuing nukes in underground complex despite talks with West, dissident group claims.  Despite Iran's denials that it is on the path to a nuclear bomb, new evidence charges that the Islamic republic has an "underground top-secret site" that is enriching uranium intended for nuclear weapons that has been hidden from the West for years.  According to the Iranian opposition group, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), the complex, called Lavizan-3, is right outside Tehran, "buried deep underground in tunnels and underground facilities" with "radiation-proof doors" to prevent any leaks that could be detected by the United Nations International Energy Agency inspectors.

Somali Migrants in Minnesota are a Terror Threat to the Mall of America.  The media is widely reporting a terror threat against the Mall of America by Al-Shabaab, a Somali Muslim terror group.  None of them are reporting why the Mall of America in particular would be a target.  Minnesota has its own Little Mogadishu which, aside from the usual welfare fraud and crime, also hosts supporters of Al-Shabaab. [...] The Mall of America is a target only because of the large Somali population in the state.  If the US continues importing more Somalis, it will only be importing more Islamic terror threats.

ISIS Threatening To Use The Immigration Weapon To Conquer Europe.  When jihadists acting on behalf of the Islamic State beheaded 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians on the shores of Tripoli, their typically-slick snuff film ended with one of the butchers raising a blood-soaked knife and swearing to conquer Rome.  Contrary to the lunatic immigration enthusiasts who claim mass migration is good for Europe, the Islamic State is honest enough to say that diversity will be weakness for Europe — not strength.

ISIS might be harvesting organs, Iraqi diplomat says.  Iraq's ambassador to the United Nations asked the U.N. Security Council on Tuesday to look at allegations that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is using organ harvesting as a way to finance its operations.  Ambassador Mohamed Alhakim told reporters that in the past few weeks, bodies with surgical incisions and missing kidneys or other body parts have been found in shallow mass graves.

Enemies of the West Find a Friend in Obama.  At the risk of being melodramatic, it must nonetheless be said:  We are in a war for civilization itself, and Barack Obama is not on the right side.  We are in a battle for civilization because the Islamic State, which is darkness and evil personified, has declared war against us — and we in the West and the modernized Orient (Japan, India, Taiwan, and the like) are, despite our flaws, the very repository of civilization.  They are backwards; we are enlightened.  They are warped; we are well-intentioned.  They are inhuman; we are humane.  They are soul-less; we are desirous, however imperfectly, of a grace beyond our ken.

Woman Hijacks Podium at Muslim Event: 'False Prophet' Muhammed 'Will Never Dominate Texas!  Suffice it to say:  The 11th annual Texas Muslim Capitol Day is not going well for Texas. [...] When members of the Muslim community showed up to the Capitol for the annual meeting with state lawmakers, they were greeted by roughly 25 protesters who showed up to give the Muslim community a piece of their mind.  According to the Texas Tribune, one demonstrator's sign read "Radical Islam is the New Nazi," and another's:  "Go Home & Take Obama With You."

The most important article about ISIS you will read this year.  Kudos to Graeme Wood of The Atlantic, whose tour de force backgrounder on the burgeoning Caliphate in the Middle East ("What ISIS Really Wants") is the kind of journalism that vintage media should engage in, but never does.

What ISIS Really Wants.  The Islamic State, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), follows a distinctive variety of Islam whose beliefs about the path to the Day of Judgment matter to its strategy, and can help the West know its enemy and predict its behavior.  Its rise to power is less like the triumph of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt (a group whose leaders the Islamic State considers apostates) than like the realization of a dystopian alternate reality in which David Koresh or Jim Jones survived to wield absolute power over not just a few hundred people, but some 8 million.  We have misunderstood the nature of the Islamic State in at least two ways. [...]

The War Against Radical Islam.  Last week, during the first cattle call of GOP candidates for President were paraded on stage in Des Moines one man, not a candidate nor a potential (as far as I know) candidate gave what was probably the most important speech of the weekend. [...] Gingrich made the distinction between radical Islamists and "Muslims who are willing to live in peace with your neighbors and accept diversity " like "being willing to have not just a Mosque, but a Church, a Synagogue, and a Temple."  "But," he said serving up the red meat, "if you want to impose sharia by cutting off my head, I have a desire to kill you before you can do that."

No-Jew-Go Zones.  Regardless of whether "No-Go Zone" is a proper term in a general way, there is no doubt that there are cities and sections of many cities in Europe which are no-go zones for those publicly identifying as Jewish by dress (e.g., wearing a kippah/yarmulke) or symbols (e.g. wearing a Star of David) or appearance (e.g., long beard in combination with dress and symbols).  We have explored the problem of Walking While Jewish repeatedly over the years, including recently regarding "Kippah Walks" in placed like Copenhagen to protest harassment of Jews on the street, frequently by groups of Muslim young men.

The Swastika and the Crescent.  [Scroll down]  To the Nazi elite, any undesirable racial classification of Muslim populations was a wholly different question from the desirability of Islam as a faith.  In fact, many of them, including Hitler, distinguished between race and religion when speaking about Islam.  A number of high-ranking Nazis expressed their sympathy for Islam.  Perhaps most fascinated with the faith — and enthusiastic about what he believed to be an affinity between Nazism and Islam — was Heinrich Himmler.

Does Islam Have Anything to do With Islam?  I have posted recently why Muslim "moderates" fail to persuade me with their disclaimers that Islamist terrorism and murders have nothing to do with Islam, (I use scare quotes because what Muslim moderate really means is, "doesn't kill people" when such nonviolent Muslims may be as absolutist and dedicated to total Islamic triumph as the most die-hard, sword wielding ISIS jihadis).

Report: UK No-Go Zones Sparking Tension Between Black and Muslim Communities.  For many years, we have been hearing reports of insular Muslim communities in Europe, particularly in France and the UK, which became known as "no-go zones" because non-Muslims were not welcome there.  Islamic clerics were given autonomous authority, and government agents were hesitant to assert themselves.  Following three significant recent events — the Charlie Hebdo massacre, Louisiana governor and possible GOP presidential candidate Bobby Jindal referring to no-go zones in a London speech, and Fox News reporting on the phenomenon — it suddenly became fashionable to insist that nothing of the sort has ever existed at all.

Escape to Syria of Charlie Hebdo suspect shows Turkey's role as jihadi highway.  For the wife of the gunman accused of killing four people at a kosher supermarket in Paris 10 days ago, the escape from questioning about complicity in the Charlie Hebdo terror attacks was relatively easy.  Once Hayat Boumeddiene, 26, got to Turkey, she followed the path of hundreds, perhaps thousands, of other European jihadi volunteers before her — into the self-declared Islamic State.

The Muslim population of America is expanding at warp speed.  Even when Muslims are a minority population they can and do transform whole cultures and societies. And not for the better.  Why?  Because their holy book is a totalitarian ideology founded on submission and world domination.  And toward that end, Islam is on the march.  Meanwhile, the West remains mired in cowardice and complicity.  Nowhere can this be seen more clearly than in Europe, which is on the fast track to join the Caliphate.  Not to be outdone by Europe's madness, the United States is traveling down the same bloody path, importing large numbers of Muslims from Islamic countries thanks to the Islamophile sitting in the Oval Office and a nation full of dhimmis.

Islamic Opening Prayer to Allah in the House of Reps.  Watch the frog get boiled slowly in this C-SPAN video.  It won't be long 'til we're as jacked up as France and England are with Islamic nutters.  [Video clip]

Home Depot Just Made a Decision That Will Likely Alienate At Least Half their Customers.  The radical Muslim group CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) has once again managed to move their agenda forward getting Home Depot to agree to force employees of a Michigan store to go through "cultural awareness training" about their religion and culture.  In other words, they're being forced to learn how to treat Muslims differently from the rest of their American customers.

Gov. Jindal Still Pushing Discredited Claim of 'No-Go Zones'.  The speech Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal (R) is set to give in London on Monday makes significant references to all-Muslim "no-go zones" in European cities, the existence of which are roundly disputed by everyone from scholars to people who live in them.  "In the West, non-assimilationist Muslims establish enclaves and carry out as much of Sharia law as they can without regard for the laws of the democratic countries which provided them a new home," Jindal is expected to say, according to a copy of the text obtained by USA Today.

Why We Need to Talk About Muslim Anti-Semitism.  The usual treatment of Muslim anti-Semitism is cursory.  History books acknowledge its existence while asserting that European anti-Semitism was worse.  Modern media coverage takes the same approach by finding a useful distraction in the European far-right.  Muslim anti-Semitism needs to be addressed on its own if for no other reason than that it's the dominant form of violence against Jews in Europe.  And it has been that way for some time now.

Muslim Brotherhood Agent Pelosi Wants On Intelligence Committee: 'Allah Will Not Allow You To Stop Us'.  At the 2012 Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) Convention, Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN), a Muslim whom House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi named as her choice to sit on the House Intelligence Committee, expressed solidarity with the Muslim Brotherhood in his speech.  During that speech, Carson referred to unnamed infiltrators of his event before saying it was "unfortunate" that people think "we're having secret meetings, that we're plotting to destroy this country" before making a very bizarre statement.  Instead of assuring everyone that this was not in the least bit true, Carson said the following instead:  "Allah will not allow you to stop us."

Thousands Rally Against Radical Islamic Terrorism in Texas.  This weekend was the weekend that a pro-Islam rally was held in Garland, Texas.  But those that want to end any discussion about the evils of Islam weren't the only ones who went to Garland to rally for their principles.  Thousands more came to protest the supporters of Islamic terror.  "We're here to stand up for the American way of life from a faction of people who are trying to destroy us," one man told the Dallas/Fort Worth NBC affiliate.

Islamists Encounter Resistance at Texas Convention.  You can't blame Muslims for thinking America is ripe for conquest, when you consider what we have in the White House.  But Obama won't be around forever.  Despite moonbattery having reached epidemic proportions, American endures.  When Muslims staged a "Stand With the Prophet" event in Garland, Texas over the weekend, they discovered that not all of us are Charlie Hebdo; some of us are ready to shoot back.

Fox Guest, 'There Are 19 Paramilitary Muslim Training Facilities In US'.  Look no further than right here in America.  [Video clip]

Jindal's Brilliant Take on Radical Islam.  It is the toughest speech I have read on the whole issue of Islamic radicalism and its destructive, murdering, barbarous ways that are upsetting the entire world.  Early in the speech Jindal says he's not going to be politically correct.  And he uses the term "radical Islamists" without hesitation, placing much of the blame for the Paris murders and all radical Islamist terrorism on a refusal of Muslim leaders to denounce these acts.  Jindal says, "Muslim leaders must make clear that anyone who commits acts of terror in the name of Islam is in fact not practicing Islam at all.  If they refuse to say this, then they are condoning these acts of barbarism.  There is no middle ground."

The Muslim World's (and Our) Moment of Truth.  It looks like a Churchill moment in the world.  With the Charlie Hebdo massacres in Paris the French have had enough.  Finally — finally! — after years of terrorist murders followed by appeasement or worse, ordinary people are ready to take to the streets.  Politicians feel threatened by rising parties like UKIP in Britain, Marine le Pen's Front Nationale in France, and PEGIDA in Germany.  As usual, Europe's politicians try to smear their opponents as neo-Nazis, but that is a lie in most cases.  No warmongers need apply in Europe today.  But vigorous self-defense against Muslim aggression is now widely understood to be in the cards.

Top Democrat: 'Un-American' to Question Muslim Lawmaker on Intel Panel.  Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said those who criticize the appointment of Democratic Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN) to the Intelligence Committee because he is a Muslim are "un-American."  Schiff, who is the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said he has been "deeply disturbed" by the reaction by some to Carson's appointment last week.

Fight Them Over There.  Argue about the limits of free speech, the definition of "true" Islam, whether terrorists are lunatics or rational, or the social and political repercussions of terrorism as much as you'd like.  The truth is that such debates are irrelevant to the core security problem:  There is a growing and energetic movement of radical Muslims dedicated to killing as many people as they can and imposing their will on the rest.  And there is really only one way America can respond to this challenge.  We need to kill them first.  We need to kill them on a field of battle whose contours are determined not by the terrorists but by us.  We need to kill them over there — in the Middle East — before they reach the West.

America Following France's Demographic Path To Terror.  Dearborn, Mich., is about 40% Muslim.  That is just one of the eye-opening statistics National Review's Ian Tuttle cites in an article this week on the growth of the U.S. Islamic population, a report as sober as it is chilling.  Would only a bigoted Islamophobe be disturbed upon hearing that stat?  Maybe, but a secret 2013 National Counterterrorism Center document, revealed by the online publication The Intercept, found Dearborn second only to New York in known or suspected terrorists and their associates.  There were 2.75 million Muslims in the U.S. in 2011, according to the Pew Research Center, 1.7 million of whom were legal.  But, Tuttle notes, the Council on American-Islamic Relations estimates about 7 million Muslim Americans.

The most common New York cab driver name is now Mohammed.  Thousands of snippets of data have been gathered to provide a detailed look at one of New York City's most iconic sights — the yellow cab.  An info-graphic by Vizual-statistix this week has revealed that the most common first name in 2014 among the 52,131 authorized drivers (those behind the wheel of both yellow cabs and limousines) is Mohammad — and alternate spellings MD, Mohammed, Muhammad, and Mohamed.  The next most common names were Jean and Abdul.

Boko Haram embraces Islamic State model for extremist jihad.  With the world's attention focused on Paris, analysts and intelligence officials are picking up an equally disturbing development on the global jihadi landscape:  the growing connection between the Middle East-based Islamic State and the shadowy Nigerian terrorist group Boko Haram.  The two are divided by some 3,000 miles, and U.S. intelligence sources say they cannot confirm the groups are sharing fighters or coordinating operations.  But a growing number of terrorism specialists outside the government say Washington is ignoring a dangerous tactical and ideological convergence between the groups that has been mounting for months.

Whose side is she on?
'Islam Is Part of Germany': Merkel Joins Muslim Rally in Berlin.  Fresh off the circuit from a visit to Paris, during which she marched alongside world leaders against the terrorism that took the lives of 17 people at the hands of Islamic fundamentalists, German Chancellor Angela Merkel joined a march in her own country organized by Muslim and Turkish community groups.  The groups were calling for an even more "open and tolerant" Germany and to counter anti-Islam protests that have been taking the nation by storm.

Merkel Joins Muslim Community Rally.  Although the lights of of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin were extinguished to shame a PEGIDA demonstration last week, they were burning brightly yesterday as German Chancellor Angela Merkel joined a rally of Muslim inhabitants of Berlin.  The rally, organised in part to show solidarity with those killed in Paris, and in part to signal opposition to the Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West (PEGIDA), featured Muslim community leaders, sung Islamic prayers, and a raft of top German politicians.

Democrats will appoint Muslim to the House Intelligence Committee who said US schools should be like Islamic madrassas.  House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is set to appoint a Muslim lawmaker to the Intelligence Committee, congressional aides said Tuesday, giving him access to some of America's most closely held secrets in the war on terror.  The move will come as the world is still grappling with an al-Qaeda death squad's massacre last week of journalists at the French satire magazine Charlie Hebdo, executed because they had published a cartoon of the Muslim prophet Muhammad.

Terror Attack In France Rooted In Entitlement.  France has a cultural problem:  one of entitlement.  In some cases, it simply leads to whining; in others, to jihad.  The prevalence of various ethnic subsets within the French population is a matter of ongoing debate, with increasingly extremist voices perceiving this multiculturalism as a problem spiraling out of control.  What's being viewed as an ethnic problem is really, at its core, an entitlement problem.

Critics question Syracuse mayor's appointment of Nation of Islam rep to school board.  The mayor of Syracuse is drawing criticism after appointing a member of the Nation of Islam to fill an opening on the school board, but the follower of firebrand minister Louis Farrakhan vowed to help the community tackle "the whole problem of race."  Mark Muhammad, 54, an assistant professor at nearby Onondaga Community College and adjunct professor at Syracuse University, was tapped by Mayor Stephanie Miner to fill the last nine months of a term won by a board member who moved out of the city. Muhammad is the city's local representative for the often controversial offshoot of Islam, led by Farrakhan, who has a long history of making anti-Semitic and racist statements.

The Troubling Math of Muslim Migration.  A major Islamist terror attack in France was only a matter of time.  For several decades, the country has invited immigrants from the Middle East and North Africa en masse — first to bolster the labor force in the rebuilding years that followed World War II, then out of multicultural impulses that prevailed over prudential considerations.  That radical Islam was transplanted to France, grew in strength and extent, and bore this week's hideous fruit was not difficult to predict.  The same is not unlikely in Sweden, Belgium, Germany, and elsewhere.

Advice From a Navy SEAL: Forget PC, Exterminate Them.  All of the Islamic terrorists are all clearly in on Operation Global Jihad but Mr. Obama has banned the use of the words "jihad" and "Islamic radicalism" and won't even discuss the cause of the terrors we face.

PEGIDA Shows no Sign of Slowing as 25,000 March Against Islamisation.  Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West (PEGIDA) have 'strolled' again, but despite a week of Islamist terror in France and the fire-bombing of a German news paper which printed Mohammed cartoons, the German establishment has continued to condemn the movement.  The group has continued its apparently unstoppable growth, leaping from 20,000 last week to 25,000 on the streets of Dresden yesterday, with 30,000 strolling nationwide.

Mosques on the front lines in the war against America.  As the Islamic invasion advances, mosques are proliferating across the United States at breakneck speed.  And there appears to be no end in sight. [...] War has been waged against the United States and what have we done?  We have welcomed the enemy with open arms.  Dhimmitude has paved the way for hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of new mosques since the day nearly 3,000 Americans were murdered in the name of Islam.  If we don't put an end to this madness, we will ensure the continued assault against us — an assault that, ultimately, will spare no one.

Liberal Dhimmitude: 12 Signs You're Part of the Problem.  Dhimmi literally means "protected person," and the term was originally applied to non-Muslims who capitulated willingly to Islamic expansionism between 638 and 1683, and who lived in Muslim countries as craven second-class citizens.  A bit like the French in World War Two.  But with the latest maniac squad gun massacre in Paris this week, it's hard to argue that our Islamic overlords are looking out for our best interests.

UKIP's Farage: Multiculturalism Creating 'Fifth Column' in West.  In the wake of Wednesday's massacre of twelve people at a satirical French newspaper by suspected Islamic fundamentalists, UK Independence Party head Nigel Farage warned that the obsession with fostering a multicultural society has created a "fifth column" in the West.  As leader of the UK's fastest-growing political party, Farage has pushed a British exit from the European Union and a reform of Britain's liberal immigration laws, which his party believes limits economic opportunity for UK citizens and threatens the nation's social fabric — even its physical safety.

The Islamisation of Britain in 2014.  The Muslim population of Britain reached 3.4 million in 2014 to become around 5.3% of the overall population of 64 million, according to figures extrapolated from a recent study on the growth of the Muslim population in Europe.  In real terms, Britain has the third-largest Muslim population in the European Union, after France and Germany.  Islam and Islam-related issues were omnipresent in Britain during 2014, and can be categorized into four broad themes:  1) Islamic extremism and the security implications of British jihadists in Syria; 2) the continuing spread of Islamic Sharia law in Britain; 3) the sexual exploitation of British children by Muslim gangs; and 4) Muslim integration into British society.

Congressman Walks Back Appearance at Islamic Terror Group's Chicago Convention.  Last Saturday [12/27/2014] I broke the story here at PJ Media that Congressman Andre Carson — one of only two Muslim congressmen — had been scheduled to speak at a panel at the Muslim American Society (MAS) — Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) annual convention held last weekend in Chicago.  I noted that the panel included Mazen Mokhtar, who, as federal agents have testified in federal court, helped run an Al-Qaeda website that raised money for the Taliban.  At the time, Carson's scheduled appearance on the panel was noted on the convention's online program.  Within the past 48 hours, his name was removed from the website.

The Jihadist Connection to Epidemic Child Abuse.  Western Europeans are not even allowed to talk about limiting Muslim immigration, witness the second prosecution of Member of Parliament Geert Wilders in the Netherlands today, merely for asking the question:  "Do we want more Moroccan immigrants?"  In Europe today, the political and media power of Muslims and their Leftist allies is enormous, and given their indigenous practices of bribery, sexual and physical abuse of children and women, and imperialistic theology, Europe's taboos on criticism of PC must reflect deep corruption.  Nations do not commit suicide unless they are forced to.  But Europe cannot seem to stop itself.

Muslim Congressman's Ferguson Panel at Chicago Islamic Convention Features Al-Qaeda Webmaster, Taliban Fundraiser.  Congressman Andre Carson found himself in strange company Saturday evening [12/27/2014] when he was scheduled to be featured on a panel with a known Al-Qaeda webmaster and Taliban fundraiser, Mazen Mokhtar, during the just-concluded 2014 Muslim American Society/Islamic Circle of North America (MAS/ICNA) 2014 convention held in Chicago.

Let's Be Honest about the Mideast.  The problem in the Mideast is that two peoples make an exclusive religious and national claim on the same piece of property.  Both are determined to fight for it, and the more determined of each group refuse to recognize the right of the other to exist.  Indeed, both deny the other's present existence: many Israelis say there is no such thing as Palestinians, and Palestinians claim that the Jews are actually Indo-European Khazars, not Semites.  It should be obvious that one of the peoples has to be removed.  Yet conservatives never state the obvious.  Why?

15,000 March Against 'Demise of The West' and Radical Islam as Weekly Protest Grows.  In their ninth weekly 'evening stroll', German anti-Islamification group PEGIDA (Patriotic Europeans Against Islamisation of the West) have attracted a remarkable 15,000 supporters as mothers, children, and pensioners joined together under "for the future of our children" banners and marched through Dresden.

Tennessee cop lets Muslim drive off with dead child in trunk.  What would happen to most people if they were pulled over by the police for a traffic offense and in the course of the traffic stop, they announced there was a dead body in the trunk of the car?  At the very least, the police officer would order the driver to open the trunk so the officer could inspect the body.  It could be a lot worse than that.  Unless you are in Tennessee and you are Muslim.

UAE Media Debate Burqa Ban Following Brutal Stabbing of American Teacher in Abu Dhabi.  For the first time in history, and in the wake of the December 1st stabbing death of an American teacher in Abu Dhabi by a woman wearing a burqa, Gulf region media are questioning whether the burqa is a security risk.  Historically, other Muslim and Arab governments, as well as feminist activists, have not only questioned the burqa — they have also abolished it.  Such countries include Turkey, Egypt, the Maghreb, Iran, and Afghanistan.

Niqabs and Burqas as Security Threats.  The niqab and burqa both should be banned on security grounds, because one cannot allow faceless and bodyless persons walking the streets, driving cars, and otherwise making use of public spaces; the dangers are too great.  This blog focuses on specific dangers, especially in the West (where reporting is better), of the niqab, burqa, and other Islamic coverings as a disguise for criminal and terrorist purposes.

Muhammad is [the] Most Popular Name in Britain for New-born Boys.  Muhammad is the most popular name for boys in Britain, pushing the traditional British names of Oliver and Jack into second and third place respectively, according to the website BabyCentre.  There is a surge in Arabic names generally, with Nur a new entry in the girls' top 100, jumping straight to number 29, and Maryam rising 59 places to number 35.  Omar, Ali, and Ibrahim are new to the boys' top 100.

Minnesota imam refuses to denounce the Islamic State.  Sheikh Jamel Ben Ameur, an Islamic scholar and imam of Masjid Al-Tawba Islamic Cultural Community Center in Eden Prairie, has refused to denounce the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria for one reason, he says: because the news reports about the Islamic State are "confusing" and "complicated."  Ben Ameur has called on his Muslim counterparts to be careful about their comments regarding the group amid developing revelations that several Twin Cities Muslims have been recruited to join the Islamic State, which is also often referred to as ISIS or ISIL.

Mehdi Hasan: 'British Papers Should Face Sanctions for Criticising Islam'.  Mehdi Hasan, the Islamist apologist and political director of the Huffington Post has called for boycotts, strict regulation, and enforcement of diversity quotas to tackle "demonising press coverage" of Muslims.  He presented his solution is a speech yesterday [11/17/2014] at a media event in central London.

The Islamic Takeover of the National Cathedral.  [T]he Washington National Cathedral joined the Hagia Sophia as a Christian hostage of grand architecture, a fortnight ago.  Muslims invaded the Washington National Cathedral, a monument to Christianity, this time under the guise of "prayer" on November 14, 2014.  The Muslim prayer was being planned in the Cathedral for 12 to 18 months.  Whether the Dean of the Washington National Cathedral, Reverend Gary Hall of the Episcopal Church, knew it or not he was actually hosting the precise 100th anniversary of the declaration of Holy War by the Ottoman Empire as the Muslim Caliphate, which occurred on November 14, 1914.  It was a bold declaration of Holy War by the Ottomans against the most powerful Christian nations of that time.  It is crucial to highlight history and specific dates, which are significant by the Ottoman tradition of Holy War.

National Cathedral to Host First Muslim Prayer.  Washington National Cathedral is hosting a Muslim prayer service for the first time on Friday [11/14/2014].  Planners say they hope Friday's service at the historic cathedral will foster more understanding and acceptance between Christians and Muslims around the world.

Washington National Cathedral to host Friday Muslim prayer service.  Washington National Cathedral, known for presidential funerals and other major spiritual services, will host a Muslim prayer service for the first time Friday [11/14/2014].  The cathedral, part of the Episcopal Church, has long held high-profile interfaith events, and some mosques hold services in synagogues or churches if they need overflow space.  But organizers said Monday that they are seeking to make a statement by having Muslim leaders come and hold their midday service in such a visible Christian house of worship.

Evidence that Islam is anti-American:
Dion Waiters says he skipped anthem because of his Muslim faith, then blasts report.  Cleveland Cavaliers guard Dion Waiters was absent from several pregame activities Wednesday [11/5/2014] against the Utah Jazz, skipping the national anthem and introduction of starting lineups.  It seemed at the time like a rebellion because Waiters had been replaced in the Cavs' starting lineup for the first time all season.  But Waiters told Cleveland.com that wasn't the case at all.  Waiters is a Muslim and has re-dedicated himself to his faith, and that's the reason he wasn't present for the national anthem.

Beware of Homegrown Terrorists.  A complex issue is at stake, how to assess the divergent views of the 1.6 billion believers in the religion of Islam.  Most Muslims profess to view their religion as personal and peaceful, but a vociferous minority of Islamist extremists embodies religious views that stem from the fundamentalist brand of Islam, Salafism or Wahhabism, that regards Shiites as heretics and fuses religion and politics.

Survival of the witless? Unlikely to impossible.  In the past week, we have read about three teenage girls who flew from Denver to Frankfurt on their way to Syria to join the Islamic State as concubines for the men in black, who need to relax after a busy day at the office crucifying children and cutting the heads off infidels.  But the three teenage girls were just one example of the enemy within.  A variety of so-called Americans have disappeared onto the battlefields in Iraq and Syria to serve with the enemy... yet the United States is incapable even of stripping a passport from someone fighting against his or her very own country.  Nor is this fear of offending Muslims something new.  To this day, five years after the Fort Hood killer Nidal Hasan slaughtered 13 people, the Obama administration insists that this maniac who was screaming Allahu Akbar ("God is great") while shooting American soldiers was engaged in "workplace violence" rather than terrorism.  Maybe you didn't hear that Hasan has petitioned to become a citizen of the Islamic State "caliphate," but I assure you the U.S. Attorney's Office has.

Islamic Burial Rituals Blamed For Spread Of Ebola.  When Muslims die, family members don't turn to a funeral home or crematorium to take care of the body.  In Islam, death is handled much differently.  Relatives personally wash the corpses of loved ones from head to toe.  Often, several family members participate in this posthumous bathing ritual, known as Ghusl.  Before scrubbing the skin with soap and water, family members press down on the abdomen to excrete fluids still in the body.  A mixture of camphor and water is used for a final washing.  Then, family members dry off the body and shroud it in white linens.

What the Arab World Produces.  At least since the early part of the 20th century, aside from oil, the Arab world has produced and exported two products.  It has produced essentially no technology, medicine or anything else in the world of science.  It has almost no contributions to world literature, art or to intellectual development. [...] The total number of books translated into Arabic during the last 1,000 years is less than Spain translates into Spanish in one year.  ArabianBusiness.com reports that about 100 million people in the Arab world are illiterate; and three quarters of them are between the ages of 15 and 45.

Kentucky churches being turned into mosques.  The growing trend of former church buildings being turned into mosques and Islamic centers has reached Kentucky's largest city where even some once-thriving Southern Baptist facilities are now occupied by Muslims. [...] In Kentucky and throughout the Southern Baptist Convention, the number of Christian converts has been in steady decline in recent years, while other religions have been experiencing rapid growth.  Louisville, for example, now has more than 20 mosques.

Obama Forbids FBI to Use Religion in Identifying Terror Threats, as ISIS Recruits Openly in U.S. Mosques.  [American Thinker] had a chance to catch up with Steven Emerson, head of The Investigative Project on Terrorism, and hear his assessment of the ISIS threat here on American soil.  Emerson runs the country's top data center on Islamic terror groups in the United States, working like a man possessed, and accomplishing the work of thousands on sheer guts and determination to protect our country.  Wherever the bad guys have been caught and prosecuted successfully, you will find Emerson working quietly behind the scenes as an invaluable ally of the FBI and Homeland Security.  Because he accepts no money from the government, Emerson has been free of the diktats of the Obama administration that have forbidden the FBI to train their sights on Muslim terrorists.

The West's Multiculturalism Blows Up on the ISIS Battlefield and Here at Home.  The Islamist State's chief propagandist is believed to be a wealthy American.  His name is Ahmad Abousamra, he is 32 years old, and he is the son of a Boston doctor.  He is young and he is not poor, and he is not ignorant.  He is also not unacquainted with western notions of individual freedom.  He just rejects them.  He was born and raised in France and his formal education does not have Islamist overtones at all.  He attended Xaverian Brothers Catholic high school and Northeastern University, where he made the dean's list.

It's Time to Kick ISIS Members Out of America.  Every week brings new reports of Muslims in America flocking to join ISIS.  Those who aren't killed in battle will eventually return to New York, to Los Angeles and to Minneapolis-Saint Paul.  And they will stop being Iraq's problem and become our problem.  ISIS is more than just another terrorist group.  It is now an Islamic State.  Its followers and allied militias pledge to obey the Caliph of ISIS and reject all allegiances to other states and entities.  Western ISIS recruits burn their passports to show that they are no longer citizens of those countries.  Like most Salafists, ISIS members see our system of law and government as idolatry and heresy.

One-way ticket to hell.  It was only a matter of time before anti-terror authorities reported that radicalized American or immigrant Muslims had returned home to the U.S. after taking up arms with ISIS in Iraq or Syria. [...] The rule should be:  If you go to Syria or Iraq to fight as an unauthorized civilian, you are not coming home to the U.S.

We Are Losing WWIII.  The war against ISIS is actually part of a hydra-headed conflict we have with Hamas, Hezb'allah, al-Qaeda, Al-Shabab, Boko Haram, the insurgents of Mali, the Muslim Brotherhood, the militant mullahs and imams of Iran, the Syrian rebels and Syrian government of Assad, Fatah, and Islamic Jihad.  Even our so-called friends or allies in the African/Middle Eastern regions such as Turkey (a NATO member-state?), Qatar, and even Saudi Arabia are nightmarishly unfriendly.  All are financing sharia propaganda and murderous rampages in various countries.

Sanders: 'I Do Not Want to See This Become ... War Between Christianity and Islam'.  The 22 senators who voted [9/18/2014] against arming Syrian rebels in the continuing resolution came from each party and had different reasons for their objections.  Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who may be contemplating a run for the White House, told MSNBC he voted "no" because "I do not want to see this become a war between east and west, a war between Christianity and Islam, a war between the United States and ISIS."

The New Colonizers.  Every immigrant group in this country has variously adapted to the heritage culture, integrating more or less seamlessly by the second generation.  However, second-generation Muslims are increasingly being radicalized, some going off to fight with jihadist militias in the Middle East and Africa, others plotting terror attacks on the very country that has offered them freedom, health care, education and the opportunity to prosper.  The common denominator along this spectrum of cultural invasiveness is the sentiment of vested ascendancy and pre-eminence minus the obligation of having to earn them.

The Islamic State's Real Goal.  For the terrorist group known as the Islamic State, Syria and Iraq were a good place to start their campaign, but in order to survive and prosper it knew from the outset that it had no choice but to set its sights on the ultimate prize:  the oil fields of Saudi Arabia.  It is in that direction that the battle for control of the world's largest oil fields is currently heading.

Refusing Submission.  Considering the legitimate fear that ISIS has already penetrated our unprotected southern border, it's reasonable to assume that Americans may soon be facing acts of terrorism against soft targets similar to the massacre in Kenya's Westgate Mall in 2013.  Americans can't count on law enforcement or mall security alone to deal effectively with highly-trained teams of terrorists like the Westgate or Mumbai killers, so we all need to take measures to defend ourselves.  Among those measures, should we consider learning how to fake being Muslim?

The Editor says...
You can put a gun to my head or a knife to my throat, but I will not ever pretend to be a Muslim.

President Obama's ISIS Strategy Isn't Reality Based.  Obama degrades America by dwelling in a politically convenient fantasy world. [...] In Obama's fantasy, ISIL is neither Islamic nor a state.  But distinguishing ISIL's doctrine from the orthodox Wahabism preached daily in Mecca and Minneapolis, and that from the Koran, is hardly possible for scholars never mind for religiously illiterate politicians.  In fact, some of the world's wealthiest and most influential Muslims think enough of ISIL's Islamic credentials to give it countless millions of dollars as a faith-offering, thousands upon thousands of young Muslims from around the world, including the USA rush to fight and die for it, the Muslim governments of Qatar and Turkey, respectively, continue to buy and transit supplies for it, while the Islamic world's leading intellectual authorities have not critiqued its Islamic credentials.

Living in a Sharia Enclave in America.  The United States and Western Europe are confronting the increasing threat of their citizens traveling to the Middle East to join the worldwide Islamic jihad.  Over the past few months, numerous news reports have shed light on disaffected citizens from America and Britain joining the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) or other terrorists groups and leaving to train and fight in the Middle East.  ISIS is adept at using social media to correspond with Western nationals from Europe and North America predisposed to radicalization.

Like it or not, 9/11 is about Islam.  Thirteen years have now passed since al Qaeda terrorists carried out their attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.  If not for the valiant efforts of the passengers of United 93, the White House or Capitol Hill might have been added to that list.

Lawmakers target Americans sympathizing with terror groups.  Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, filed a bill on Monday [9/8/2014] that would [revoke the citizenship of] Americans who join the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, or any other foreign terror organization.  "There are over 100 Americans right now who have gone and are fighting alongside ISIS," Cruz told Fox News on Monday.  He said "we can't have people who have joined the terrorists, using U.S. passports to come back and commit acts of terror here at home."

Islamaphobia? Yes!  On a recent family trip to Santa Monica, an evening walk on the Third Avenue Promenade felt as if we had been dropped into a Middle Eastern country.  90% of the people strolling down the bustling walkways and lounging at the cafes were Muslim.  Women were dressed in either burqas, niqabs, or hijabs and the few younger women who were not, were speaking Arabic.  This experience followed a trip to Maine where we found ourselves encountering an unusually large number of Muslims on the streets of several cities and learned of the mini-Dearborn into which the Lewiston/Auburn area had been transformed.  Portland almost resembled midtown Manhattan where the Muslim population has been growing exponentially over the past several years.

It's Time to Kick ISIS Members Out of America.  ISIS is more than just another terrorist group.  It is now an Islamic State.  Its followers and allied militias pledge to obey the Caliph of ISIS and reject all allegiances to other states and entities.  Western ISIS recruits burn their passports to show that they are no longer citizens of those countries.  Like most Salafists, ISIS members see our system of law and government as idolatry and heresy.  Fort Hood Jihadist Nidal Hasan, who recently applied to join ISIS, had earlier written that he would "renounce any oaths of allegiances that require me to support/defend any man made constitution (like the Constitution of the United States) over the commandments mandated in Islam."

From the Thousand Year Reich to the Global Caliphate.  The classic text here would be The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich by William L. Shirer, the late radio journalist for CBS and various newspapers of the day who began reporting on the Nazis from his post in 1920s Germany.  Shirer describes the Nazis of the early 1920s precisely as thugs with a feckless delusion of world domination.  In Shirer's words the early Nazis were "uniformed rowdies" whose bullying tactics frequently landed them in jail.  In the day, to borrow from Mr. Obama's description of ISIS, the early Nazis and their "uniformed rowdies" were seen as a "manageable problem."

Obama has No Intention of Stopping ISIS.  Obama is allowing ISIL/ISIS to continue its blood lust of beheadings of Christians and others across the world.  He has done nothing to stop it and, chillingly, has not even mentioned it except for a passing remark or two.  Now, this group of Sunni Muslims (BTW... please remember that Obama's "family" members — save one who is a conservative Christian shunned by the rest of the family — are all Sunni Muslim Brotherhood) — has beheaded 2 American journalists within the last 2 weeks.  After a passing remark containing an almost 'sorry it happened' to the parents of beheaded journalist James Foley, Obama hurried off to make his tee time.  He was later photographed high-fiving one of his golfing buddies and yucking it up on the links.

Minnesota ISIS terrorist killed in Iraq had 'unfettered acces' to planes at Minneapolis Airport.  The next time you have to take off your belt and shoes to gain access to the airplane you want to board, give a thought to Abdirahmaan Muhumed, the ISIS jihadi killed in Iraq.  Because before he left Minnesota to fight for Allah, he worked as an airplane cleaner at Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport, where he had "unfettered access" to airliners, the ramp area, and other supposedly secure areas.

Military Experts: With ISIS in El Paso, Ft. Bliss in Danger of Terrorist Attack.  The recent increase in security at a key Army base near a Mexican border city where Islamic terrorists are confirmed to be operating and planning an attack on the United States indicates that the facility is a target, according to senior military experts contacted by Judicial Watch.  Last week JW reported that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is working in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle borne improvised explosive devices (VBIED).

New ISIS threat: America's electric grid.  Former top government officials who have been warning Washington about the vulnerability of the nation's largely unprotected electric grid are raising new fears that troops from the jihadist Islamic State are poised to attack the system, leading to a power crisis that could kill millions.  "Inadequate grid security, a porous U.S.-Mexico border, and fragile transmission systems make the electric grid a target for ISIS," said Peter Pry, one of the nation's leading experts on the grid.

ISIS Publication Aims to Lure Recruits; Justifies Atrocities by Citing Mohammed.  The latest propaganda publication by the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) is clearly designed to lure more recruits from Western countries, portraying an idealized picture of a band of "strangers from the East and the West," drawn together despite national and ethnic differences, in common allegiance to one leader and one sacred cause.  Entitled Dabiq, the slick, full-color digital magazine has been produced in English and several other European languages.  The style and grammar suggest first-language English writer or writers, and the spelling is American rather than British.

Multiculturalism: What the Left Would Prefer You Didn't Know.  [F]or example, we in liberal Western culture generally take a dim view of marrying members of your own family, female genital mutilation, forced or arranged marriages, second-class status for women, voter fraud, systematic political corruption, honour killings, the organised grooming, trafficking and rape of underage girls, and so on.  In some of our immigrant communities, though, such practices are considered more or less acceptable.  (And I'm only using that "more or less" modifier out of politeness).

The Two Faces of Islam.  One face is for Islam's useful idiots the other is for Islam's faithful.  The Koran is not arranged in chronological order.  When it is arranged in chronological order it is clear that the Koran undergoes a serious transition after Muhammad's first real triumph on the battlefield at Badr in 624.  The period following that battle is called the Medina period of the prophet's life.  Conceptually this transition can be seen as a transition from the Old Koran to the New Koran.  Unlike the transition from the Old to the New Testament, the transition from the "Old" Koran (pre-Medina) to the "New" Koran (Medina) is a transition to a more vengeful, demanding, supremacist God.

The Myths of Muhammad.  As a service to Muslims and infidels alike, we hope to refute the contemporary mythology of Muhammad (popular in the West) by referring to the earliest and most reliable Muslim historians, who based their writings on the narrations of those who actually knew their revered prophet.

Vandals Deface Three Indiana Christian Churches with Islamic Graffiti.  Sometime on Saturday night, vandals attacked three Christian houses of worship in Columbus, Indiana, spray-painting the word "infidels" and citations of verses from the Koran on the outer walls.  St. Bartholomew Catholic Church, Lakeview Church of Christ, and East Columbus Christian Church all had the word "infidels" spray-painted on them, in places of prominence to be seen by worshipers.

Six Strategies Obama Could Use to Fight the Islamic State.  [#1] Bomb the Islamic State.  Some evils in this world can only be stopped by force.  ISIL is one of them.  ISIL might be adept at sadistically brutalizing the helpless, but if President Obama orders a robust and sustained American air campaign, the militants might well find themselves on the receiving end of military force so ferocious that it could unhinge their most hardened fighters.

Homeland Security Sec.: We're Unaware of 'Credible Threat' to U.S. from ISIS.  Earlier today [8/29/2014], the British government raised its terror threat level to "severe," suggesting a very likely terrorist attack by ISIS on British soil.  In response, U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson issued a statement saying the government is unaware of any "credible threat" on U.S. soil from ISIS.  Johnson says, "At present, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the FBI are unaware of any specific, credible threat to the U.S. homeland from ISIL."

UK terror threat level raised to 'severe'.  The UK's terror threat level has been raised from "substantial" to "severe" in response to conflicts in Iraq and Syria, Home Secretary Theresa May says.  The new alert level rates the risk of an attack on the UK "highly likely", although Mrs May said there was no evidence to suggest one was "imminent".  It is the second highest of five possible UK threat levels.  David Cameron promised new legislation would make it easier to take passports from those travelling abroad to fight.

Isil terrorists 'highly likely' to attack UK, warns David Cameron, as threat level is raised to severe.  Islamist terrorists are "highly likely" to attack the UK as David Cameron announced the threat assessment has been raised to its second highest level.  It is the first time the threat level has been at "severe" since 2011 when it was reduced to "substantial" and reflects growing concern from the risk of British jihadists fighting in Syria and Iraq.  It is feared more than 500 have gone and around half of those are now back in the UK, with some possibly planning attacks here.  At least one plot is known to have already been foiled.

It's Clearer Than Ever That Poverty Does Not Cause Terrorism.  There is a pervasive belief that poverty is a key driver of terrorism.  American foreign aid increased under George W. Bush, justified partly by security concerns.  Bush said at the time, "We work for prosperity and opportunity because they're right.  It's the right thing to do.  We also work for prosperity and opportunity because they help defeat terror."  Similarly Bill Clinton has stated "we have to create more opportunity for those left behind by progress, thus reducing the pool of potential terrorists."  This framing of poverty and development as national security issues continued with the Obama administration.

Obama's America Is September 10th America.  Our barbaric jihadist enemies — the ones President Obama repeatedly assured us he had "decimated" and put on "the path to defeat" — are now stronger than ever.  Not stronger than they have been in years, or decades — stronger than ever.  They have seized a country-size swath of territory (and growing).

Paycheck for Terrorism: $5,300 for Suicide Attack.  For the first time, startling details are being made public about the millions of dollars funneled from Middle East charities to Islamic terrorists and their families.  The money was used to reward terrorists and their families after attacks on Israelis and U.S. nationals visiting Israel between 2000 and 2005 during the second intifada or Palestinian uprising.  The evidence was presented today in a landmark case in New York federal court.  Three hundred U.S. nationals claim Arab Bank knowingly provided financial services to terrorists and their financiers in violation of the U.S. anti-terrorism law.  Arab Bank contends it did not knowingly serve terrorists.

Former CIA Officer: UK Multiculturalism Created Homegrown Radicalism.  Former CIA covert operations officer Mike Baker argued that the United Kingdom's embrace of diversity and multiculturalism is responsible for the problem of homegrown Islamic extremist terrorism in the country on Thursday's [8/21/2014]] broadcast of "The Laura Ingraham Show."  "[The UK] chose this path of diversity.  So people coming into the country they were told, 'Celebrate your own culture.  You don't have to fit in, you don't have to mix in.  We want you to be diverse; we want you to celebrate who you are and where you come from.'  It's created this mess at this point" he said.

ISIS: The End of Denial.  For thirty years, the West has been in denial, ever since Jimmy Carter surrendered to Ayatollah Khomeini in the mass kidnapping of our embassy personnel in 1979.  Since then the OPEC cartel has simply bought up Western politicians and media owners, until the average American can no longer think straight about the clear and present threat of jihad war.

U.S.: Dearborn cleric popular with ISIS fighters owes $250K for fraud.  A cleric in Dearborn popular with supporters of the militant group ISIS owes a quarter of a million dollars in restitution and other costs stemming from his fraud convictions, according to newly filed court records.  Ahmad Jebril, 43, who has gained an international following among ISIS fighters and sympathizers, is on probation after serving 6½ years in prison.  After being released in 2012, he has used social media to become what experts say is the most popular religious leader for Islamists from the West fighting for ISIS, also known as ISIL or the Islamic State.

'They're coming' and 'another 9/11 is imminent'.  Ali Khedery is the chairman and chief executive of the Dubai-based Dragoman Partners.  He negotiated Exxon Mobile's entry into Kurdistan as an executive with that company.  Before that, he worked with the U.S. State and Defense departments, and was the longest serving American official in Iraq from 2003 to 2009.  Khedery served as the special assistant to five U.S. ambassadors and a senior advisor to three commanders of U.S. Central Command.  Ali Khedery knows the Middle East, and Iraq in particular.  It is important to know Khedery's background because when he sounds the alarm, and he is sounding the alarm with all the fury of a man witnessing an irreversible tragedy unfolding, the world would be well-advised to listen to him.

Muslims Turn away from Islamism.  The Pew Research Center, a subsidiary of The Pew Charitable Trusts, has the means to sample opinion with unique frequency and on a major scale.  It has used its funds to track Muslim attitudes toward Islamism in general, toward specific terrorist groups in particular, and also toward suicide bombing over the past decade.  The most recent study, "Concerns about Islamic Extremism on the Rise in Middle East," released on July 1, conducted among 14,244 respondents in 14 countries between April 10 and May 25, 2014, holds much interest.

The Caliphate Restored.  The caliph, who was theoretically chosen from among the most pious and capable men of the community, was considered to be the political, military and religious successor of Muhammad as the leader of the Muslim community. He ruled according to the dictates of the Sharia (Islamic law), implementing Allah's decrees of justice on earth.  The caliphate was abolished by the secular Turkish government in 1924.  The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in Egypt in 1928 partly as a reaction to the end of the caliphate, and from the beginning a central part of its program has been the need to work toward restoring it and then recovering lands that had been lost to Islam.

Questions Rebels Use to Tell Sunni From Shiite.  ISIS believes that the Shiites are apostates and must die in order to forge a pure form of Islam.  The two main branches of Islam diverge in their beliefs over who is the true inheritor of the mantle of the Prophet Muhammad.  The Shiites believe that Islam was transmitted through the household of the Prophet Muhammad.  Sunnis believe that it comes down through followers of the Prophet Muhammad who, they say, are his chosen people.  But how can ISIS tell whether a person is a Sunni or a Shiite?  From accounts of people who survived encounters with the militants, it seems they often ask a list of questions.  Here are some of them: [...]

Stealth Jihad Meets PC America.  What is stealth jihad?  It's the incremental spread of Islamic law in a society by means of activism, propaganda and lawfare, and by the gradual co-option of schools, courts, and media.  It's the long march through the institutions that the Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci recommended to European communists.  Leftists have already co-opted many of society's institutions.  What's to prevent jihadists from doing the same?  Stealth jihad is much more difficult to detect and resist than the armed variety.  It's not the type of aggression the Army is trained to deal with.  And, in fact, the Army has proven itself on several occasions to be an enabler of stealth jihad.

American Muslims Flocking To Jihadist Group.  Radicalized young American Muslims — including as many as 15 Somali-born Minnesotans — have flocked to a jihadist group in recent months, lured by rap videos and hip social-media propaganda.  Security experts are calling it the "Jihad Cool" rebranding of terrorism, and say it's highly effective in pushing Americans like Abdirahmaan Muhumed, a Twin Cities father of nine, to high-tail it to Syria to help the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant topple President Bashar al-Assad's regime.  "I give up this worldly life for Allah," Muhumed said of joining the Islamic State in a Facebook message earlier this year.  If people call him a terrorist, he's "happy with it," he added.

Hillary: You know, the American political system is the most brutal in the world.  Let's face it — there was never going to be a good time for a gaffe of this scale, but it's hard to think of a worse time for it. [...] Aung Sang Suu Kyi might have a different perspective on brutal in relation to political systems, or perhaps the anti-Chavistas in Venezuela could have informed Hillary of what the word actually means.  For that matter, nearly everyone in Syria could have explained it to her back in 2011.

Amid Iraq crisis, Obama, Kerry golf and tweet.  While Iraqi jihadists are slaughtering the masses, taking over major cities and engaging in the mass execution of Iraqi military in their march on Baghdad, you have to ask:  How much sense does it make for Secretary of State John Kerry to be tweeting to Hollywood celebrities about the environment this past weekend?  Or for President Obama to be working on his golf swing?  Imagine the "optics" that sends to our foreign enemies.

Taliban changing from religious group to criminal enterprise: U.N..  The Taliban's reliance on extortion and kidnappings, along with narcotics and illegal mining operations, is transforming it from a group driven by religious ideology into a criminal enterprise hungry for profit, U.N. sanctions monitors said in a new report.

The Investigative Project on Terrorism.  is recognized as the world's most comprehensive data center on radical Islamic terrorist groups.  For more than a decade, the IPT has investigated the operations, funding, activities and front groups of Islamic terrorist and extremist groups in the United States and around the world.

New York Times Censors Ad Decrying Islamist Censorship.  An "Islamist" is not simply an individual who privately observes Islam as his faith.  An Islamist is an individual who blurs the ideological lines between personal religion and the nation state — a boundary upheld as one of America's founding principles and sustained in the First Amendment — to foster a governmental system that relies upon the supremacy of Islam.

Multicultural Surrender has Turned Britain into a Third World Country.  Britain is turning into a third world country.  If you want to know how and why, consider three of the ongoing scandals that continued to fester over the weekend.  The first concerns allegations of vote-rigging in London borough of Tower Hamlets, where scandal-wracked, Islamist-linked mayor Lutfur Rahman has just won a second term as mayor.

Who's running the 'asylum' in the U.S.?  Another America-hating foreign Muslim demanding political asylum, and then getting arrested by the FBI for consorting with other Muslim terrorist political refugees who commit multiple murders in the name of jihad.  Stop me if you've heard this one before. [...] Already, the left-wing media are trying to defend their new poster boy, despite his lack of "tousle hair."  The same outlets that never mention when a vicious murder is committed by an illegal alien now assure us that this Matanov was in the U.S. "legally."  So what?  The problem is, he shouldn't have been here in the first place.  And he certainly should never have been granted "asylum," but then, they always get asylum.

Islam: Some Religions Are More Equal Than Others.  Captain Paul Fields of the Tulsa Police was suspended and then transferred for refusing to order his officers to attend an event at the Masjid al-Salam, the Islamic Society of Tulsa (IST). [...] The officers were to meet with the leadership of the mosque, view the Quran, learn about Islam and were urged to buy pamphlets and books.  I'm sure they were also urged to convert.  Radical Islam is religious fascism.  You can bet they are moving into every police department across the nation, converting officers and recruiting warriors for Islam and Sharia — just as they are doing in the prisons.  They want the strongest warriors among us — violent or not — prisoners, athletes, military, police officers.

Another Sheriff Buckles To CAIR.  There's an old saying that people will only change when the pain of staying the same becomes greater than the pain of changing.  When applied to cowardice in the face of Muslim Brotherhood front groups in the U.S., far too many institutions choose fear over courage.  The latest example comes courtesy of a KAKE news report out of Wichita, KS.  If this keeps up, the pain of staying the same will only exceed the pain of changing when there's blood in the streets.  Sheriffs with badges are required — REQUIRED — to eschew cowardice.  Yet, far too few do.

Islamism with a Human Face?  Islamism has significantly evolved over the past 13 years.  As recently as 2001, its adherents were synonymous with criminals, terrorists, and revolutionaries.  In this spirit, I wrote three days after 9/11 that many Islamists "are peaceable in appearance, but they all must be considered potential killers."  These words ring archaic now, at a time when Islamists find the ballot box a more effective means to power than the gun.  Terrorism and coercion remain widely in use, to be sure, implemented by barbaric groups like ISIS and Boko Haram.  Yet, some reforms of Islam are already underway.

British Islamist: Muslims Should Humiliate Christians to Make them Convert.  A British Islamist leader has outlined how an "Islamic State" should humiliate Christians to encourage them to convert to Islam.  Abu Waleed, who follows the hard line Salafi branch of Sunni Islam, quotes from the hadith (Islamic writings outside the Koran) to demonstrate how Christians and Jews should be treated if they do not convert to Islam.  In the sermon, posted online by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), Waleed says that Islam is incompatible with the UN Declaration on Human Rights, as it cannot treat all people as equal.

Arab Winter Comes to AmericaArab Winter Comes to America is less about the past than the present, less about lands abroad than our own streets and cities.  The Arab Spring cracked regimes that had sought a middle ground between the unfettered savagery of Islamic law and the modern world.  The Arab Winter may take longer to crack the West which is trying to walk the same fine line, suppressing blasphemy against Islam as hate crimes and silencing criticism of Islam as Islamophobia, but the book suggests that it can and it will.

The Museum to Islam at Ground ZeroThe New York Times did a big write-up on the latest developments on the now-scrapped Ground Zero mosque plan.  The notorious provocateur, Ground Zero mosque developer Sharif el-Gamal, unveiled a new plan to build a three-story museum "dedicated to exploring the faith of Islam."  Oh, the irony.  A museum to Islam on the site of the biggest and bloodiest Islamic attack on a Western country is grotesque.  One has to wonder if one of the exhibits will be the landing gear that crashed through the roof of that very building.

Developer Scales Back Plans for Muslim Center Near Ground Zero.  The developer whose proposal to build a Muslim community center and mosque near the World Trade Center failed amid a national controversy three years ago said Tuesday [4/29/2014] that he now plans to construct a museum devoted to Islam in the same location.  Sharif El-Gamal, the developer, said through a spokesman that instead of a $100 million, 15-story community center and prayer space, he now planned a smaller, three-story museum "dedicated to exploring the faith of Islam and its arts and culture."  The building would also include a sanctuary for prayer services and community programs.

America [is] Being Islamified.  There is no doubt in anyone's mind that the Muslim Brotherhood is an organization bent on propagating the spread of Islam throughout the world by whatever means necessary.  Recently leaked documents which were captured by American agents have revealed their motives and plans.  It is alarming to find out how well organized they are and how meticulously they are moving forward with their plan.  Indeed, it is disturbing to find out how much their agenda seems to coincide with the general agenda of the Left in America.

'Carloads' Of Terrorists Turned Oregon Ranch Into Training Camp.  An Oregon woman says she thought she was opening up her family's ranch to local Muslims to teach them how to grow and can veggies — and that her husband was even expecting a tax write-off.  But US-born Muslim convert Eva Hatley testified in Manhattan federal court Tuesday [4/22/2014] that after the "carloads'' of fellow Muslims she met through her mosque arrived at the 160-acre ranch in Bly in 1999, the couple watched helplessly as their home was turned into an al Qaeda training camp.

Al-Qaeda: 'Spreading Like Wildfire'.  Last week, a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee held a hearing provocatively titled "Is Al-Qaeda Winning?"  The answers that the Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation and Trade received were profoundly unsettling.  Former Senator Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.) testified that Syria had become a key focal point of al-Qaeda's efforts.  He noted that there are more foreign militants fighting in Syria today than in Iraq and Afghanistan combined over the past 10 years:  "Put very bluntly, Syria has become the most dangerous terrorist sanctuary in the world today — and the United States has not coherent or credible policy for dealing with it."

Police Unit That Spied on Muslims Is Disbanded.  The New York Police Department has abandoned a secretive program that dispatched plainclothes detectives into Muslim neighborhoods to eavesdrop on conversations and built detailed files on where people ate, prayed and shopped, the department said.

NYPD's Surveillance Program: It's Not About Islam, It's About Protecting New York.  National security should serve policy objectives.  It should not be a victim of political correctness.  Politics should be kept especially far away from the practice of intelligence.  Today's decision by the NYPD to close the unit that was mapping Muslim communities in New York is very likely a product of political pressure.  It is a decision that will make the city targeted in the largest terrorist attack in modern history less safe.

Brandeis U. decides against honor for Islam critic.  After taking heat from some of its own over a decision to grant an honorary degree to an advocate for Muslim women who has made comments critical of Islam, Brandeis University withdrew the honor Tuesday night [4/8/2014].

Brandeis University withdraws planned honorary degree for Islam critic Ayaan Hirsi Ali.  Brandeis University in Massachusetts announced Tuesday that it had withdrawn the planned awarding of an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a staunch critic of Islam and its treatment of women, after protests from students and faculty.  The university said in a statement posted online that the decision had been made after a discussion between Ali and university President Frederick Lawrence.

The Shame of Brandeis.  If you have not yet heard, Brandeis University has rescinded its offer of an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the Somali-born activist whose work has focused on the barbaric misogyny rampant in Islamic societies like the one in which she was raised — and whose efforts to call attention to them as a legislator in the Netherlands led to a political crisis there and her eventual flight to the United States.  Given that it only takes a Google search to find out everything one would need to know about her, including the controversial aspects of her views, it is laughable for Brandeis President Fred Lawrence to claim he had to withdraw the degree because of information he had only lately discovered.

Brandeis U withdraws invitation to Ayaan Hirsi Ali to receive honorary degree.  An offer to award former Muslim activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali an honorary degree during commencement at Brandeis University has been rescinded because some of her past statements are "inconsistent with Brandeis University's core values."  What's truly amazing about this decision is that the liberals who forced the issue are praising Ali for her work in exposing genital mutilation, forced marriages, and honor killings — but now want to ban her because apparently, her statements exposing those horrors hurt the feelings of Muslims.

Islam Critic Speaks Out on Brandeis: There's Fear of Violent Repercussion for Criticizing Islam.  Ayaan Hirsi Ali joined Megyn Kelly Wednesday night to react to Brandeis University rescinding the honorary degree they said they were giving her.  Hirsi Ali blasted the "very feeble excuse" Brandeis gave and the way any critic of Islam is threatened with "violent repercussion" just for speaking out.  Hirsi Ali said, "For the last 12 years I have systematically been condemned by Muslim individuals... any time that I bring up the treatment of women in Islam."

A Note to Supporters of Brandeis.  As Lori Lowenthal Marcus notes, Brandeis University has in recent years bestowed an honorary degree on Tony Kushner, who called the creation of Israel as a Jewish state "a mistake" and who attacked Israel for ethnic cleansing and for causing "terrible peril in the world."  Brandeis has also honored Desmond Tutu, who compared Israel to Hitler, attacked the "Jewish lobby" as too "powerful" and "scary," and complained of the "Jewish monopoly of the Holocaust."  Unfortunately, that's business as usual in the modern academy, including at an academic institution founded out of a special concern for the well-being of Jews in America and elsewhere.

Brandeis reverses itself on honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali.  Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a Power Line hero for reasons that will become clear below.  Brandeis University was set to give her an honorary degree at this year's commencement exercises.  But bowing to pressure from Muslim students, outside advocacy groups, and a portion of its faculty, Brandeis has backed down.  As much as I admire Ayaan Hirsi Ali, I don't condemn Brandeis' decision.  My reasons will, I hope, also become clear below.  An outspoken defender of women's rights in Islamic societies, Hirsi Ali escaped an arranged marriage in her native Somalia by immigrating to the Netherlands in 1992.  She served as a member of the Dutch parliament from 2003 to 2006.  In parliament, she worked on furthering the integration of non-Western immigrants into Dutch society and defending the rights of women in Dutch Muslim society.

It's Not New at Brandeis; "Repressive Tolerance" Was Born There.  Shutting down a speaker, or a professor, or a book with which you strongly disagree is nothing new.  Indeed, if there's anything really new about Brandeis' disinvitation to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, it's that they invited her at all, no matter how briefly.

Enforcing Islamic Law at Brandeis.  Officially, Brandeis is now a place where critics of Islam — "blasphemers" and "apostates," according to Islamic law — are scorned and rejected.  Not that Brandeis put it that way in its unsigned announcement about Hirsi Ali's dis-invitation, which notes:  "She is a compelling public figure and advocate for women's rights, and we respect and appreciate her work to protect and defend the rights of women and girls throughout the world.  That said, we cannot overlook ... her past statements that are inconsistent with Brandeis University's core values."  Translation:  Hirsi Ali's advocacy on behalf of brutalized women is good, but Hirsi Ali's "past statements" — advocacy that connects such violence to Islamic teachings — are bad, or, in faddish twaddle, "Islamophobia."

Michael Graham: Brandeis Embraced Bill Ayers, Has Bred Terrorists.  In one of a pair of Sunday posts at his web site, New England talk show host Michael Graham added an emphatic exclamation point to Brent Bozell's and Tim Graham's Saturday column condemning the cowardice and hypocrisy of Brandeis University's decision to revoke its commencement invitation to Ayaan Hirsi Ali.  In the other, Graham roasted the Boston Globe for backing Brandeis.

Islamic group gets go-ahead to cut crosses off NY church.  A city board on Thursday [4/3/2014] gave a Muslim group the go-ahead to remove six crosses from the roof and spires of a century-old former Catholic church so the now-vacant Gothic structure can be used as a mosque.

Muslim Brotherhood Launches its Own U.S. Political Party.  With an eye toward the 2016 election, the radical Muslim Brotherhood has built the framework for a political party in America that seeks to turn Muslims into an Islamist voting bloc.  'Muslim voters have the potential to be swing voters in 2016," said Nihad Awad in launching the benign-sounding U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations, whose membership reads like a Who's Who of Brotherhood front groups.  "We are aiming to bring more participation from the Muslim community."  USCMO also aims to elect Islamists in Washington, with the ultimate objective of "institutionalizing policies" favorable to Islamists — that is, Shariah law.

Mosqueing the Top of the Empire State Building.  A Muslim family from Long Island slapped the owners of the Empire State Building Tuesday with a $5 million lawsuit that claims that Islamic prayer is not being accommodated on the observation deck of the Emprie State Building.  This is the template for imposing Islam on the public square (or a top ten target of jihadists).  This public prayer on the observation deck of the Emprie State Building was a provocation.  It had nothing to do with piety or religiosity.  It is political and supremacist.  Were they facing Mecca or Ground Zero?

The Editor says...
Can hostile visitors dictate the rules of behavior on private property?  It seems hard to imagine that any jury would decide in their favor, even in New York.

Newly Formed Muslim Coalition Seeks Greater Clout in U.S. Elections.  Ten U.S. Islamic organizations have formed a new umbrella group to serve as a "representative voice" for American Muslims, and one of their first tasks will be to carry out a census of the community.  Other focus areas for the new U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), according to speakers at the body's launch in Washington on Wednesday, include enhancing Muslim political engagement and participation in forthcoming elections, civil rights issues, combating "Islamophobia" and having an impact on U.S. foreign and domestic policy.

The Real Meaning of Al Qaeda.  The term al Qaeda means "The Base" in Arabic, but the sense of the term suggests it is — or is to be — the font and guide of all Islamist actions and groups dedicatedly anti-Western.  The ultimate aim of these jihadi elements is to establish a global caliphate.

Merry Christmas from our Muslim friends in Canada.  Right at holiday time, a Muslim "charity" in Toronto has started a highly offensive advertising campaign in the Toronto subway declaring Jesus is no God.  Just for a micro-second, imagine what hell would break loose if a Christian group on the eve of Ramadan (or heck, any day of the year), sponsored subway ads declaring Mohammed was no prophet.

What Will It Take?  "Today," writes Larry Kelley in his sobering book Lessons from Fallen Civilizations, "millions of militant Muslims awake every morning plotting the destruction of the US.  Many are among us."  And there will be more, if [recent] reports of fast-tracking the citizenship applications of large numbers of Muslim immigrants are reliable, as they appear to be.

Terrorists [are] Doing 9/11-Style Dry Runs On Airplanes.  US Airline Pilots Association's Steve Sevier cited a Sept. 2 incident in which a group of "Middle Eastern males" started acting suspiciously after US Airways Flight 1880 took off from Washington to Orlando, Fla.  "Shortly after takeoff, one got up and ran from his seat in coach toward the flight deck door.  He made a hard left and entered the forward lav, where he stayed for a considerable length of time!" Sevier wrote.  "While he was in there, the others got up and proceeded to move about the cabin, changing seats, opening overhead bins and generally making a scene.  They appeared to be trying to occupy and distract the flight attendants."

10 News Investigators find memo warning about terrorist "dry-runs" on airplanes.  The 10 News Investigators have obtained an internal memo that details a frightening incident that brings back memories of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.  Since then, federal efforts have gone in place to prevent a similar attack, leading many to believe another attack what happened on 9/11 could never happen again.  Wolf Koch, who flies Boeing 767s for Delta Airlines and is the Aviation Security Committee Chairman for the Air Line Pilots Association International, says that belief "is very foolish."

Today in History: West Saved from Islam at Battle of Tours.  Precisely 100 years after the death of Islam's prophet Muhammad in 632, his Arab followers, after having conquered thousands of miles of lands from Arabia to Spain, found themselves in Gaul, modern day France, facing a hitherto little known people, the Christian Franks.  There, on October 10 or 11, in the year 732, one of history's most decisive battles took place, demarcating the extent of Islam's western conquests and ensuring the survival of the West.

Surreal and Suicidal: Modern Western Histories of Islam.  Thanks to the West's ignorance of history, Muslims are flooding Europe under the guise of "immigration," refusing to assimilate, and forming enclaves which in modern parlance are called "enclaves" or "ghettoes" but in Islamic terminology are the ribat — frontier posts where the jihad is waged on the infidel, one way or the other.

Time for Muslims to Confront Muslim Evil.  With this weekend's massacre by Muslim terrorists of scores of innocent civilians at a mall in Nairobi, Kenya, and Muslim terrorists' killing about 80 Christians at a Christian church in Pakistan, most people wonder what, if anything, in addition to a continuing war on terror, can be done to minimize the scourge of Islamic brutality.  The answer lies with Muslims themselves.  Specifically, Muslim religious leaders around the world must announce that any Muslim who deliberately targets non-combatants for death goes to Hell.

Terrorism In Kenya, Made In The Political Correct U.S.A..  George W. Bush took a lot of flak for saying you were either with the U.S. or with the terrorists.  Now that Kenya has been attacked by U.S.-based terrorists, maybe it's time to fight Islamofascists, not coddle them.

Twelve Years Later  ... we are still at war with the Muslim world, and it most certainly is still at war with us. [...] in addition to the 3,000 souls lost in 2001, more than 5,000 soldiers have perished in the "War on Terror," and for absolutely no strategic purpose or effect.

Blunt words about Muslim backwardness.  It's creepy and unnerving how swiftly the West's chattering classes have accepted that the peculiar sensitivities of Islam require a deference extended to no other identity group.

Islam and its infidels.  Major dissonance began around 1800, when Muslims unexpectedly lost wars, markets and cultural leadership to Western Europeans.  It continues today, as Muslims bunch toward the bottom of nearly every index of achievement.  This shift has caused massive confusion and anger.  What went wrong?  Why did God seemingly abandon His faithful?  The unbearable divergence between premodern accomplishment and modern failure brought about trauma.  Muslims have responded to this crisis in three main ways.  Secularists want Muslims to ditch the Shariah (Islamic law) and emulate the West.  Apologists also emulate the West, but pretend that in doing so they are following the Shariah.  Islamists reject the West in favor of a retrograde and full application of the Shariah.

Turkey is reclaiming its jihadi past, while Europe is simultaneously erasing its own Christian heritage.
Christendom's Greatest Cathedral to Become a Mosque.  While unrest in Turkey continues to capture attention, more subtle and more telling events concerning the Islamification of Turkey — and not just at the hands of Prime Minister Erdogan but majorities of Turks — are quietly transpiring.  These include the fact that Turkey's Hagia Sophia museum is on its way to becoming a mosque.  Why does the fate of an old building matter?  Because Hagia Sophia — Greek for "Holy Wisdom" — was for some thousand years Christianity's greatest cathedral.

Islam is bent on world domination.
Al Qaeda vows: 'Islam is coming' to the U.S.  A representative of al Qaeda in the Gaza Strip sent a stark warning to Americans during a Sunday interview on WABC Radio in New York:  Get ready for Islam.  "Islam is coming, and there is no other choice," said Abu Sager, a leader of Jihadiya Salafiya in the Gaza Strip, on "Aaron Klein Investigative Radio" on Sunday [8/11/2013].  "Because we think Islam will come, and this is something that no one can prevent."

A Radical Imam's Infiltration of Philadelphia.  Radical Imam Siraj Wahhaj isn't who comes to mind when you think of interfaith partnerships, but two of his associates have served at the Interfaith Center of Greater Philadelphia.  The two are colleagues of Wahhaj and they lead their own Islamist groups, one of which even used to go by the name of International Muslim Brotherhood.

The Way They Are.  [S]hould we take comfort from the claim that the government's inquiries and surveillance are aimed solely at "terrorism"?  Well, perhaps it depends on what the definition of "terrorism" is.  In 2009, early in President Obama's first term, the Department of Homeland Security sent a secret memorandum to assorted law enforcement agencies targeting as "terror" threats those who, for example, oppose "federal authority" and favor "state or local authority," or oppose "abortion or immigration."  In addition, for several years now, assorted DHS statements on "terrorism" have been laced with references to "right-wing" and "antigovernment" sentiments.  In 2011, a DHS training video depicted only white males as terrorists; the video did not portray any terrorists as Muslims, although press reports indicate that in 2009 and 2010 every single one of the 126 people indicted on terror-related charges was a Muslim.

Taking a Stab at It.  Daniel Pipes, a regular contributor round these parts, appeared on a somewhat fractious panel in Toronto recently, and toward the end was asked where the "moderate Muslims" were.  He responded that many of them were in the room.  Indeed, it seems entirely possible that all of them were in the room.  Daniel eventually took a crack at the numbers and concluded that "Islamists" made up 10 to 15 percent of the Muslim population, "moderates" about 1 to 2 percent, and the remaining 85 percent in between are presumably either cowed or indifferent.

'Model' Muslim State Turkey Accelerates Towards Tyranny.  [Scroll down]  To date, [Erdogan's] Turkey had been put forward as a political and economic success story for Muslim countries to emulate.  Turkey is a considerably more powerful country than it was ten years ago, but beneath the surface a different picture emerges.  From the moment they took power in 2002, the Erdogan-led coalition of ex-Islamists under the AKP umbrella worked hard to convince the West and liberals that they had left their desire for an Islamic state behind.

Britain may be an Islamic nation within 20 years.  The recent survey shows that while Christianity remains the dominant religion in the U.K. at over 50%, more than half the population if over the age of 50 and, for the first time, less than half the people under 25 consider themselves Christians.  Meanwhile, the Muslim population in Britain is growing so rapidly that Islam is predicted to overtake Christianity within the next 20 years.

Enemy Combatant Jihadists in Civilian Courts — The Lunatics Run the Asylum.  Recall that the Obama administration chose to indict Osama bin Laden's son-in-law in civilian federal court for the 9/11 attacks and the overarching al Qaeda conspiracy to kill Americans — thus undermining the military commission case at Gitmo against Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and the other 9/11 attackers.  Now we learn that the civilian court rules are being bent so that the accused terrorist, Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, is permitted to retain a lawyer beset by serious conflicts of interest that will create significant appellate issues even if Abu Ghaith is convicted.

The Problem of Muslim Leadership.  I've seen this before.  A Muslim terrorist slays a non-Muslim citizen in the West, and representatives of the Muslim community rush to dissociate themselves and their faith from the horror.  After British soldier Lee Rigby was hacked to death last week in Woolwich in south London, Julie Siddiqi, representing the Islamic Society of Britain, quickly stepped before the microphones to attest that all good Muslims were "sickened" by the attack, "just like everyone else."  This happens every time.  Muslim men wearing suits and ties, or women wearing stylish headscarves, are sent out to reassure the world that these attacks have no place in real Islam, that they are aberrations and corruptions of the true faith.

The bipartisan folly of our Islam delusion.  In our deeply partisan politics of today there is one area where it is hard to find the truth spoken by either Republicans or Democrats.  It is the idea that Muslim people yearn for democracy.  This is a glaring shortsightedness that both sides hold in common.  To be clear, many of my Muslim friends long for Western-style democracy and freedom.  But they are always thwarted (and always will be) by the majority view that prevails in their countries.  That is why even those friends of mine would admit that democracy is incompatible with Islamic ideology.

Conversions to Islam.  An alarming feature of our current sociocultural world is the striking frequency of conversions to Islam across the entire gamut of Western private and public life: prisoners converting to the religion of peace in record numbers; women who crave the emotional comfort and feeling of security that donning the hijab or the niqab purportedly confers; disaffected youth who find purpose and meaning in attending the mosque, often becoming radicalized in the process; African-Americans reacting against Christianity as the white man's religion and who "associate conversion to Islam with recovering their ethnic heritage"; [...] Even a Gitmo prison guard proved unable to resist the seduction of Islam.  To read only a partial list of notable converts to Islam is chastening.

We Are Not Serious About Stopping Islamic Terror.  You can stop this sort of thing.  It's not even that hard.  We could take the national security threats posed by our immigration system more seriously.  We could stop issuing visas to Moslem countries like Chechnya and Saudi Arabia unless they can demonstrate and swear they do not support jihad.  We could monitor their actions to make sure it is true.  We could have INS, the FBI, Homeland Security do their job.  We need to make sure temporary residents are not joining jihadi mosques and Muslim Brotherhood front groups here in America.  They are not citizens covered by our full constitutional protections.  They are potential national security risks.

The Islamist Pull.  [S]ingle and usually young American resident males, often originating from the Muslim world (and not always from the Arab Middle East), sometimes citizens, sometimes resident aliens, can at some point not square the circle of being attracted to American popular culture, often failing to assimilate or succeed in the United States, and ostensibly seeking to remain (or return to being) a devout Muslim that alone gives them moral redemption and guidance.  The result is a dead soul who kills the vulnerable and innocent, and who is a psychological and social mess.

Peter King: Stop being 'politically correct'.  Rep. Peter King is calling for greater law enforcement focus on Muslim communities, arguing that authorities should put aside what is "politically correct" and recognize that America faces major threats from Islamic terrorism.  "Obviously the main international base, the terrorist threats are coming from the Muslim community," King (R-N.Y.) told POLITICO on Saturday [4/20/2013].  "There have been 16 terror plots against New York [since Sept. 11, 2001], all Islamist-based.  We're at war with Islamic terrorism.  It's coming from people within the Muslim community by the terrorists coming from that community, just like the mafia comes from Italian communities."

AP seeks to define 'Islamist'.  The Islamist movement started in Cairo, Egypt, in the 1920s in reaction to the secular Turkish state that replaced the Ottoman Empire after World War One.  That was the Muslim Brotherhood.  Today the movement includes a wide variety of groups such as the Taliban, Hezbollah, Al Qaida and numerous affiliates.  The movement includes fighters, militants, extremists and radicals.  All members of these groups are either fighters, militants, extremists or radicals.  It is how they define themselves.  All Islamic fighters, militants, extremists and radicals are Islamists [...] Not all Muslims are Islamists, however.

They hate us so much, they live here!  [Scroll down]  The study found:  New York was the most likely place for homegrown terrorist to live for both foreigners residing in the US and those born in America.  A shocking 82 percent of the terrorists were US residents and more than 50 percent were American citizens.  Among all terrorists who resided in the US, New York was home to the most — 14 percent, followed by Florida with 11 percent and New Jersey with 9 percent.

It's Not Easy Being Red and Green.  Islamism is even more untethered than Communism, loosely originating from powerful oil nations, but able to spring up anywhere in the Muslim world.  Its proponents have even less use for the nation state than the Communists.  What they want is a Caliphate ruled under Islamic law; a single unit of human organization extending across nations, regions and eventually the world.  The left is incapable of engaging with Islamism as an ideology, instead it reduces the conflict to a struggle between colonial and anti-colonial forces, showing once again that the left's worldview is usually at least fifty years out of date.

Empire and resistance: Lessons from history.  What do these all have in common:  The Ottoman Empire, the Nazi Empire, the Soviet Empire and the New Islamic Caliphate?  If you are a student of history, you will recognize that the first three of these expansionist empires have all been the underlying or overt cause of millions of deaths, and that they were central players in three world conflicts.  The fourth empire, which is the only one still extant, cannot yet be measured in terms of the damage it will eventually do, but it is the largest in both geography and population and it is still growing.

Our Old Grand Fantasies About Radical Islam.  Most things that we read in the popular media about radical Islam are fantasies.  They are promulgated in the mistaken belief that such dogmas will appease terrorists, or at least direct their ire elsewhere.  But given the recent news — murdering in Algeria, war in Mali, the Syrian mess, and Libyan chaos — let us reexamine some of these more common heresies.

Egyptian Press Confirms Washington Infiltrated By Islamists.  The radical Muslim Brotherhood doesn't just threaten Israel and Mideast peace.  According to the Egyptian press, several of its operatives have infiltrated the U.S. government and are influencing policy here.  The respected Egyptian magazine Rose al-Youssef has identified at least six Brotherhood-tied agents of influence who have worked into positions inside the Obama administration.

Cables: State Dept. Disregarded Warnings About Muslim Brotherhood Threat.  A look at recent headlines involving Egypt's new Islamist-dominated government makes clear the radical, threatening path its leaders are charting, and that those who urged caution in dealings with the Muslim Brotherhood were prophetic.  Criticism of President Mohamed Morsi in the media and among opposition groups leads to criminal investigations.

Report: Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood Infiltrated Obama Admin.  An Egyptian magazine has claimed that six American Islamist activists who work with the Obama administration are Muslim Brotherhood operatives who enjoy strong influence over U.S. policy.  The December 22 story was published in Egypt's Rose El-Youssef magazine and was translated into English for the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT).  The story suggests the six turned the White House "from a position hostile to Islamic groups and organizations in the world to the largest and most important supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood."

Sudanese Islamists Financing Genocide by Wiping Out Africa's Elephants.  This story is so depressing in so many ways and on so many levels because it shows you what will be left Africa or of any part of the world if the Islamists succeed.  All that will be left are corpses, slaves and deserts.  No civilization and not even much in the way of wildlife.

Free Speech Roundup.  The Dutch parliament on November 29, 2012, abolished Holland's blasphemy law in a rare victory for intellectual freedom often under attack today from various self-anointed defenders of Islam.  Yet the continuing existence of similar statutes throughout free societies in Europe and elsewhere, along with recent legal actions, show that the battle between Islamic faith and freedom is far from over.

Free Speech: Either We Have it, or We Don't.  [Scroll down]  One of the more recent cases involved Michel Houellebecq (pronounced Wellbeck), the pen name of a famous French author.  He was brought to trial over an interview with Lire, a literary journal, where he called Islam, "the dumbest religion."  Part of Mr. Houellebecq's opinion stemmed from his observation that the Koran is of considerably lesser literary quality than the Bible. [...] Any Westerner who has read the Koran would certainly agree with Houellebecq — the Koran is indeed incoherent.

Not the Little Mosque on the Prairie.  When Islamic advocate Ahmed Bedier traveled to Santa Clara County a few months ago to lend support for a proposed Islamic center, he declared that opposition to the mosque was "Islamophobic" in nature.  He disingenuously compared objections against a mosque south of San Jose with the Washington, D.C. exposé of the Muslim Brotherhood's infiltration of the U.S. government, led by Congresswoman Michele Bachmann.

The consequences of Obama's love of Islam.  Socialism and even communism have managed to survive in the ruthless Islamic political system as an alternative to full-fledged Shariah.  The two ideologies blended together in the Baath Party in Syria, Iraq and socialist regimes in Egypt and Yemen.  One major difference between the two ideologies is that Islam uses Allah, while socialism uses atheism, to fight the God of Christianity.

Muhammad, the Sexual Superman.  [Scroll down]  What other religion portrays its head figure and prophet in such a manner?  What do these accounts of Muhammad — having sex with several women in a single hour, having sex with a 9-year-old — say about the founder and role model of Islam? [...] Understanding this great divide between Islam and other religions is key to understanding why Islam is at conflict with the rest of the world.  With such obsessions and priorities, is it any wonder that countless stories concerning sex-slavery, female abduction, and rape — especially for infidel non-Muslims — flood the (non-mainstream) media?

Yes, Even Ads Critical Of Islam Are Protected Free Speech.  In yet another case examining the correct application of the First Amendment, ads by conservative blogger Pam Gellar are going up on subways in New York City.  The Metropolitan Transit Authority was ordered by a Manhattan Federal Court to place "Anti-Jihad Savage" ads, starting early this week.  The MTA had originally refused to accept the ads under their "No Demeaning Ad Standard" policy.  After the ruling the MTA Spokesman said: "Our hands are tied."  The ad copy states:  "In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man.  Support Israel.  Defeat Jihad."

Obama and Religious War.  A liberal friend writes that, okay, so all religions are crazy, and the Muslims are, too.  He is wrong, of course.  All the great religions — the ones that have grown over thousands of years — have had periods of violence and war.  All the great religions except Islam have given up war and now practice peace.  That's the big difference.  Ninety percent of Muslims today may be peaceful, but they tolerate in their midst an explosive minority who can cite the Koran on violent jihad to convert the whole world.

Killing of American ambassador cannot be written off as an isolated incident.  The murder of Christopher Stevens is as shocking as it is unprecedented in recent times.  The last assassination of an American ambassador was in Afghanistan, more than three decades ago.  However, the killing of Mr Stevens, who died alongside three other US embassy officials, cannot be written off as an isolated incident.  Rather, it marks an opening salvo by radical groups in Libya who are now poised, with deadly determination, to launch a post-Arab Spring wave of revolution in the name of Islamic fundamentalism.

Obama's protective press cordon.  [Scroll down]  Mr. Obama had claimed much credit for the so-called "sweep of democracy" during the Arab Spring, when mobs rose up to overthrow governments in North Africa, along with a new respect for America.  In February, he said, "One of the proudest things of my three years in office is helping to restore a sense of respect for America around the world, a belief that we are not just defined by the size of our military."  Now, in a puff of smoke, all that is gone.  Egypt, taken over by the Muslim Brotherhood, is violently targeting America.

President's record speaks louder than his confident words.  Make no mistake — democracy is mob rule, and it was just such a mob that brutally killed the ambassador and his three colleagues — a mob no doubt spurred to action by Islamic extremists — a mob that no doubt was coordinated with the mob in Egypt that raised an Islamic flag above the U.S. embassy in Cairo — a mob that represented the underlying hatred for all Americans that is expressed regularly by millions of Arabs and Muslims.

Survey Shows 74 Percent Increase in U.S. Mosques in Past Decade.  A survey conducted by a coalition of religious organizations shows that the number of mosques in the United States has grown by 74 percent in the past 11 years — up from 1,209 in 2001 to 2,106 in 2011.  The statistics were released earlier this year by Faith Communities Today (FACT), which is affiliated with the Hartford Seminary's Hartford Institute for Religion Research.

Siding with Savages.  [Pamela] Geller's AFDI advertisements in San Francisco read, "In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man.  Support Israel.  Defeat jihad."  In New York, the ads read, "19,250 deadly Islamic attacks since 9/11/01.  And counting.  It's not Islamophobia, it's Islamorealism."  Some public officials in both cities are taking unprecedented steps to denounce and distance themselves from the ads.

A Recent Case Sheds Light on the Muslim Brotherhood, but Most Republicans Ignore It.  The people have 435 representatives serving in the House and another hundred in the Senate.  Of these 535, a total of 288 are Republicans — 241 and 47 in the lower and upper chambers, respectively.  Of these, only five House conservatives — five — have had the fortitude to raise concerns about the Islamist connections of government officials entrusted with positions enabling them to shape U.S. policy.

Storm headed for Charlotte thanks to "Jumah at the 2012 DNC".  The Democratic National Convention is endorsing a political platform for the organizers of a program called the "Jumah at the DNC."  It begins with a jummah prayer on Friday, August 31 and ends on September 2.  On the surface it appears that the event, organized by the Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs (BIMA), is cultural fun for the whole family whose only political focus is Muslims' right to assembly, but it is much more than that.  The DNC lists the assembly as an "official function" and claims that the leaders of the program are typical of the DNC community.

DNC's convention [...] 'Grand Imam' told followers United States will fall unless it 'accepts the Islamic agenda'.  Not only are the Democrats having a Muslim prayer session at their convention, but they are also got two individuals to lead the 'Jumah' that aren't exactly squeaky clean.  According to The Blaze, of the leaders of the Muslim prayer session is Jibril Hough, who according to according to Dr. Jasser once spoke at a mosque that was owned by the North American Islamic Trust.  You remember them don't you?  The North American Islamic Trust was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial as one of the entities "who are and/or were members of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood."

With Christianity displaced by political correctness in Europe, Islam fills the vacuum.
How Young German Men Are Lured into Jihad.  Young Muslim men in Germany are systematically trying to recruit their peers for jihad using sophisticated rhetoric and psychology and by targeting vulnerable youths who are searching for direction in life.

Fox News CEO Rupert Murdoch: Investigate Mosques.  News Corporation Chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch suggested that the way to combat terrorism inside the U.S. is to "look at the mosque and what they're being told," which he said is what the authorities in the U.K. are doing.  During an Aug. 14 discussion on immigration and the economy sponsored by the New England Council, when asked if he worried about a connection between immigration and terrorism, Murdoch said he did and that the FBI and federal authorities are "very aware of it."

FBI Muslim spying lawsuit against U.S. is tossed by judge.  A federal judge Tuesday [8/14/2012] threw out a lawsuit filed against the U.S. government and the FBI over the agency's spying on Orange County Muslims, ruling that allowing the suit to go forward would risk divulging sensitive state secrets.

Muslim Terrorists Tell Nigeria's Christian President: 'Convert or Resign'.  Boko Haram is demanding that Nigeria's Christian president convert to Islam or resign, a stance that again calls into question the Obama administration's playing down of religion as the primary motivation for the radical group.  In an online video clip released over the weekend, Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau told President Goodluck Jonathan to "repent and forsake Christianity."

A Muslim Agent of Influence?  A decade after 9/11/01, the murderous reality of Islamist terror is constantly denied by our media, academics, and politicians of the left.  In sober reality, Islamists brutally abuse and commonly kill women, gays, Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, African tribal peoples, and Marxist atheists.  And each other, of course.  Denying that simple reality involves such breathtaking ignorance that it cannot be an accident.

Fed to the Sharks by Political Correctness.  There is no shortage of evidence of their desire to do us harm, in the most violent way possible.  No one is safe from their evil goal — not women, or children, or the elderly, or the infirm.  Those who are deemed "infidels" are targeted for torture and grisly death.  They even murder their own family members in the name of "honor."  And yet, those on the political left seem to believe that these vile marauders just need our empathy and compassion.

The Congressman and the Imam.  New Jersey Democratic congressman Bill Pascrell is under fire for supporting a Muslim cleric who was convicted in Israel of having ties to the terror group Hamas and who believes Israel's creation was "the greatest disaster which occurred on the face of the Earth."  At issue is the veteran lawmaker's longtime association with Imam Mohammad Qatanani, a prominent New Jersey spiritual leader who is battling the federal government as it attempts to deport him for allegedly lying about his ties to Hamas.  Pascrell has defended Qatanani, helping him to remain in the U.S. despite the imam's ties to Hamas affiliates.

When political correctness collides with political correctness.  What happens when one politically correct notion collides with an opposite politically correct notion?  Disastrous chaos if you're the pessimistic type, but hilarious comedy if you're an irony fan.  Take the true story (dailymail.co.uk) of British feminist journalist Cinnamon Heathcote-Drury.  She was standing in line behind a Muslim couple at the supermarket check-out, incensed at the indifferent attitude of the Muslim husband as his hajib covered wife struggled to load their many groceries on the conveyor belt.  Cinnamon confronted the husband, demanding to know why he didn't help his poor wife with the groceries.  When he ignored her, Cinnamon brushed by him to help the woman herself in solidarity with her oppressed sister.  Cinnamon later said "this is what feminism's all about — women helping women".  Husband and wife called the cops and had Cinnamon arrested under Britain's "hate crimes" law, charging her with interference with their religion.

Sodomy 'For the Sake of Islam'.  Two important and complementary points emerge from this matter:  1) that jihad is the "pinnacle" of Islam — for it makes Islam supreme (based on a Muhammad hadith);  and 2) that "necessity makes permissible the prohibited."  These axioms are not limited to modern day fatwas, but in fact, were crystallized centuries ago, agreed to by the ulema, or Islam's leading doctrinaires.

Muslim cleric: Gay sex OK in the service of jihad.  Islam strictly prohibits homosexual behavior, with penalties in some Middle Eastern countries ranging from imprisonment to death.  But according to one Muslim cleric who cited a sheik's fatwa, jihadis who want to smuggle explosives in their rectums can — and should — accept being "sodomized" to make room for the mini-bombs.  Fatwas are pronouncements on Islamic law.  They are commonly issued by specialist clerics on narrow religious issues related to integrating Islam with everyday life.

Close Down the TSA!  A Muslim TSA screener, Alija Abdul Majed, left his screener unplugged for hours.  This was no accident.  This was a dry run.  Majed, said the [New York] Post, failed "to realize that alert lights never flashed once as streams of passengers filed through the dead detector."  Yeah, right.  We have devout Muslim screeners screening for devout Muslims?  This defines insanity.  Nor is it the first such incident.  The Post reported in June 2011 that "chilling Islamic graffiti found in the bathroom of a jet due to take off from Newark Airport was inexplicably erased by a cleaner after the Transportation Safety Administration waited 47 critical minutes to contact cops."

New 'Frog Fatwa': Amphibians Sacrosanct, Croaking Praises Allah.  Following the presidential victory of the Muslim Brotherhood's Muhammad Morsi, the very first fatwa to appear by Egypt's highest fatwa council addresses — not social, political, or economic issues in Egypt — but rather frogs.  Specifically, it bans Muslims from hunting and killing frogs to sell to those nations that dine on the amphibians.

Latino, former altar boy, now Houston imam.  Growing up on the streets of New York and Houston, Isa Parada was always part of a vibrant faith community.  An altar boy at his family's Roman Catholic parish, his family regularly prayed and read Scripture together.  Today it is no different for Parada, spare for one thing, he is not a Roman Catholic, instead he is a Muslim imam.  A convert since 1996, Parada is fluent in Arabic and an expert in Muslim theology, having studied in Saudi Arabia.  With family roots in El Salvador, Parada is part of a growing number of Hispanic converts to Islam in Houston and the United States.

Pamela Geller is speaking up.  The rise of militant Islamism and downfall of the traditional press are subjects well worth discussing.  That is good, because Pamela Geller has a lot to say.  One of America's most prolific political bloggers and pundits, she states her views about everything from Israeli foreign relations to President Obama's job performance with a remarkable frankness.

Is Al Qaeda Setting Forest Fires in U.S.?  [Scroll down]  Like most people, the thought that the fires might be terrorist attacks never entered my mother's mind.  However, it's at least ironic that just before these various fires began, Al Qaeda's Inspire magazine called for operatives to set forest fires in the United States.  The 9th issue of the magazine "contains information about how to construct remote-controlled explosives [and to] set off an ember bomb in a U.S. forest."

The Trouble with Multiculturalism:  Multiculturalism insists that all cultures are equal and equally deserving of respect and celebration.  It ignores the fact that freedom emerged and flowered in the West because of, Mansur writes, the "unique transmutation of Western culture and civilization brought about by the Enlightenment and the new scientific method pioneered by Galileo."  These influences "subjected religion to the scrutiny of reason."  In the lands of Islam, it is generally the other way around:  Reason is subject to the scrutiny of faith.  Multiculturalism makes believe that the conflict between these two schools of thought is inconsequential.  Worse, by emphasizing collective identities and group rights, and by pushing for equality of results rather than equality of opportunity, multiculturalism undermines individual freedom and devalues the Western cultures that have nurtured and defended it.

Enemy Within.  Leftists refuse to accept the true nature of Islamism, which is more like Nazism or Communism, than a religion of peace.  The enemy will not be content to beat us down on our own soil, and take over a certain amount of turf.  The Islamists will come after us with vengeance as they have pledged time and time again.  They will not be satisfied with a bombing here and there.  They will not be satisfied with military deaths.  They want to rain death and mayhem on America.  They want you to die because you are not Muslim.  They will not stop until we are converted, or dead.

Obama's Bain Attacks Could Backfire.  The ham-handed Barack Obama campaign attack ads on Mitt Romney's former firm Bain Capital have drawn a lot of ire from other Democrats.  And not just because they were sloppily fact-checked (the ads hit Romney for layoffs long after he left Bain) and because a leading Obama money bundler is a Bain executive himself.

Why Invent Mohammed?  Why invent a new religion?  Robert Spencer's excellent new book Did Mohammed Exist? collates recent historical research questioning the existence of the historical Mohammed, much of it previously not accessible to a lay American audience.  This is a dangerous thing to do, and a courageous one.  Some years ago I chided Spencer for giving the Koran too much credibility; more important than the nasty things one finds in the Koran, I argued, are two questions:  "1) Mohammed may never have existed, and 2) If he existed, he may have had nothing to do with the Koran, which well might be an 8th- or 9th-century compilation."  Spencer's present book will be translated into major Muslim languages and published on the Internet, according to Daniel Pipes.  That is an important and welcome development.

Robert Spencer Asks: Did Muhammad Exist?  One of the jihadists' most potent psychological weapons is the double standard Muslims have imposed on the West.  Temples and churches are destroyed and vandalized, Christians murdered and driven from the lands of Christianity's birth, anti-Semitic lunacy propagated by high-ranking Muslim clerics, and Christian territory like northern Cyprus ethnically cleansed and occupied by Muslims.  Yet the West ignores these depredations all the while it agonizes over trivial "insults" to Islam and Mohammed, and decries the thought-crime of "Islamophobia" whenever even factual statements are made about Islamic history and theology.

Inventing Muhammad?  [Scroll down]  These are just a few of the weaknesses in the traditional account of Muhammad's life and the early days of Islam:  No record of Muhammad's reported death in 632 appears until more than a century after that date.  The early accounts written by the people the Arabs conquered never mention Islam, Muhammad, or the Qur'an.  They call the conquerors "Ishmaelites," "Saracens," "Muhajirun," and "Hagarians," but never "Muslims."  The Arab conquerors, in their coins and inscriptions, don't mention Islam or the Qur'an for the first six decades of their conquests.

The FBI's Muslim Outreach Follies.  When FBI Director Robert Mueller testifies today for a House Judiciary Committee oversight hearing, undoubtedly he will be questioned about the FBI's ongoing "Islamophobia" purge.  Specifically, members of Congress are concerned about the FBI's continued secrecy regarding the identity of the three outside subject matter experts (SME) the bureau brought in to help with the purge (two other SMEs from inside the FBI assisted).  One reason for congressional skepticism about the FBI's use of these outside SMEs is that the bureau has an extensive history of failure when vetting Muslim outreach partners.

The 'Islamic Art' Hoax.  Why all the impetus, which started in earnest some almost a decade ago, for all the "Islamic Art" openings at prestigious museums, from the Metropolitan Museum of Art to the Victoria and Albert Museum in England?  The creation of departments of Islamic art at prestigious universities and museums?  The support of prestigious foundations like Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art?  It is political correctness.  The idea is that the kinder, gentler artistic side of Islam needs to be promoted to disabuse the hopelessly bigoted perception, held by various troglodyte crypto-neo-cons, that Islam is an aggressive, imperialist, expansionist, and repressive "religion."

Houston imam's 'fringe' comments draw criticism.  Over the past several months, frequenters of the Main Center mosque at the Islamic Society of Greater Houston, the nation's largest Islamic community organization, have reported strange, slightly paranoid and often incoherent sermons from their head imam.  In April, for instance, leading Friday prayers in front of hundreds of Muslims, Omar Inshanally warned against a "global population reduction plan" and the dumping of fluoride, Prozac and lithium in the water "to control populations," according to Aziz Gilani, a 31-year-old venture capitalist in attendance.

America's caste system when it comes to mass murder.  I'm talking about the way in which the media and establishment have different expectations depending whether Muslims are accused of killing non-Muslims, or non-Muslims are accused of killing Muslims.

The New Nazis:  What was then is now again.  The occupying army doesn't wear uniforms, it wears keffiyahs.  It doesn't speak German, it speaks Arabic.  It doesn't believe that it is superior for reasons of race as much as for reasons of religion.  It does not view all others as Untermenschen, but as infidels.  It looks forward not to a thousand year Reich, but to a thousand year Caliphate.

Guess Who Decides What FBI Agents Get To Learn About Islam?  The FBI — following the administration's lead — is purging its training materials of publications that are deemed offensive to Muslims (you know, crazy stuff like claims that passages in the Koran and Hadith promote violent jihad, Islamic supremacism, killing of apostates, oppression of women, etc.).  So what are the criteria the Bureau uses to figure out what materials are offensive?  And who decides?  You'll never guess.

The Curious Case of Craig Benedict Baxam.  Last year, an investigation by staffers on the House Homeland Security Committee, led by Chairman Pete King (R-NY) found that more than 40 Americans have attempted to join al Shabaab.  And while many of them hail from Minnesota's Somali-American community, others fit a less predictable profile.

The Islamic Paradise of the Needle and Powder.  The world's largest drug field was formerly in the Bekaa Valley where the land is warm and moist.  Reflecting the poor state of agriculture in the Muslim world, some of the most arable land in Lebanon where the Romans raised acres of wheat was turned over to cannabis and opium production.  In the '90s the situation was so bad that 80 percent of the world's cannabis came out of the valley.  The valley helped finance the PLO, Hezbollah and the Syrian army which invaded Lebanon partly to get in on the drug trade.  The Clinton Administration cut deals with the Taliban in Afghanistan and the Syrian occupation of Lebanon to try and cut down on production.  Officially production went down, unofficially the party never really stopped.

The Third Jihad.  The newest offering from the producers of the captivating documentary film, Obsession, explores the existence of radical Islam in America and the emerging risk that this "homegrown jihad" poses to national security, western liberties and the "American way of life."  The film, which is narrated by devout Muslim American Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, opens with the following statement:  "This is not a film about Islam.  It is about the threat of radical Islam.  Only a small percentage of the world's 1.3 billion Muslims are radical.  This film is about them."

Three Fundamental Mistakes in Dealing with Islam:  We made three fundamental mistakes in our dealings with Islam.  First, we assumed that the only politically acceptable answer was also the right answer.  This is the most common mistake that politicians make.  Second, we established a construct of a moderate and extreme Islam that reflected how we saw it from the outside.  This construct had no theological relationship to any actual belief or movement within Islam.

Nine Michigan car dealerships in Hizbollah scheme, laundered money in US banks.  Another update on All-American Muslim life in Michigan... that won't be seen on TLC.

Why Islam is Not a Religion:  [Scroll down]  Islam is utterly materialistic — control of the body is everything.  And the Muslim mind is focused fully on the material world.  I further contend that Islam has become a substitute God for Muslims.  Worship is defined as obedience to Islam and Islam represents the entire will of God for all men through all time.  God's will is also every single thing that happens.  So even if one disobeys Islam, it is still God's will that he did so.  If there is no difference between man's will and God's will, there is no God to seek.  In Islam God is unknowable — he is completely transcendent and his will is all things.  Theologically this is the equivalent to saying there is no God.  Furthermore, when a religion becomes completely reduced to a doctrine and only a doctrine, it is no longer a living faith.  It is dead.  Islam may be complex and it maybe logical, but it is logic in the absence of living truth.

Islam in Africa:  There never was, and never could be, a Muslim Wilberforce.  Why not?  Because Muhammad had slaves.  It doesn't matter if he "treated them well" as apologists for Islam suggest.  He had slaves, and because Muhammad is the Model for All Time, uswa hasana (a phrase that occurs three times in the Qur'an, twice applied to Abraham, once applied to Muhammad), The Perfect Man (al-insan al-kamil), his practice, the "sunna" of the Arabs of the seventh-century, can never be declared wrong.  And that is why the Arabs most faithful to Islam, the Saudis, refused to abolish slavery, and finally did so only under enormous Western pressure, in 1962, when OPEC had not yet been formed, and oil revenues not nearly as dramatic as they are today.

Islam's Indian slave trade:  The inhuman behaviour applied to the whole population by Muslims was the same whether the Muslims were Sufis, Arabs, Afghanis, Turks, or Mogul as all followed Islam's laws, text and the fine example of Mohammad.  It should also be noted that the violence and enslavement continued even after they had virtual control over India because the aim was not merely to conquer but to force all into Islam.  Muslims did not come to join Indian society, they came to wipe it out and replace it with Islam — which tells them that they own everything because it's the booty promised by allah.

2011: Year-end review of Islam's most incredible fatwas.  Some of the Islamic world's most fantastic fatwas include a ban on Muslim women eating phallic-shaped food like bananas as well as a fatwa giving Muslim men permission to have sex with their recently deceased wives.

The Curious Lack of Indonesians at Gitmo.  We may not be at war with Islam, but Islam is at war with us and has been since at least the 1920s.  Authors Robert Spencer and Andrew Bostom have written volumes about Islam's war against non-Muslims.

VP Biden Says that 'The Taliban, Per Se, Is Not Our Enemy'.  The ongoing reconciliation process has long included bringing in forces who have taken up arms against the U.S. and against the Afghan government, but Biden might face criticism for stating that as an organization the Taliban is not the enemy of the U.S., when its leadership and members have devoted so much time, resources and energy towards killing American soldiers.

Islamic World Tells Clinton: Defamation of Islam Must be Prevented — in America.  As Secretary of State Hillary Clinton welcomes Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu to Washington this week, it is critical that Americans pay attention to what these two leaders intend to do.  From 12 to 14 December 2011, working teams from the Department of State (DoS) and the OIC are going to discuss implementation mechanisms that could impose limits on freedom of speech and expression.

Creeping Halal.  In January of this year, the Daily Mail reported what was, to some at least, an alarming trend of "secretively prepared" halal meat (the meat of animals ritualistically slaughtered in accordance with Islamic law) being served in "Britain's most popular sporting venues, pubs, schools, and hospitals without the public's knowledge."  So prevalently was this tactic employed that some schoolchildren had no non-halal choices beyond a "vegetarian option."  Once the public was made aware of this fact, Britons began voicing their concerns over the practice.

Terrorists said to be infiltrating military.  Al Qaeda and other terrorists are trying to infiltrate the U.S. armed forces, which makes military facilities in the U.S. dangerous for American troops, lawmakers said Wednesday [12/7/2011].  "The Department of Defense considers the U.S. homeland the most dangerous place for a G.I. outside of foreign war zones — and the top threat they face here is from violent Islamist extremists," Rep. Peter T. King, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said during a special joint House-Senate hearing.

US military infiltrated by 'potential terrorists,' says Rep. Pete King.  Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.) says the U.S. military has been infiltrated by "a significant number of people" who are tied to "radical movements and who could be potential terrorists."  Speaking Thursday on "Fox and Friends," King discussed his fourth hearing into the radicalization of Muslim-Americans within the U.S., which opened on Wednesday [12/7/2011].

Do American Muslims Want To Take Over Our Country?  Islam is a law-based religion (similar to Judaism, except that Judaism is not devoted to converting the world), and "Islam" actually means "submission," specifically, submission to Allah and his law.  And so for Muslims, this is not simply a matter of converting people to a faith but also of bringing the society under Islamic rule.  That's why it's easy to name countries that are Muslim, like Iran or Saudi Arabia, in which the citizens are required to live by Islamic law, whereas there's not a country on the planet that is "Christian" in a parallel sense.

Nigerian Muslim sect 'out of control'.  Powerful politicians helped form a radical Muslim sect responsible for hundreds of killings this year in Nigeria aimed at seizing control of regional power and oil money — but now may have lost control of the monster they created.

NYC taxicabs
Upper West Side Traffic Snarled By Muslim Cabbies Stopping To Pray.  If you need to catch a cab, you may want to try the Upper West Side.  Some residents who live next to the Islamic Cultural Center on Riverside Drive say their neighborhood is flooded with parked taxis every week.  "They are everywhere, hundreds of them.  I joke with my doorman every Friday I can't find a cab," said John Hart, who lives across the street in a high-rise building.

Muslim taxi drivers illegally park outside Islamic center.  With a sea of yellow stretching into the distance, it looks like the taxi queue at a busy airport.  But this picture was actually taken outside a Mosque during a prayer service — with 200 Muslim cabbies illegally parked.  Residents of the wealthy Upper West Side of Manhattan are outraged that their streets are being taken over multiple times each day for the 45-minute service.

Happy Halal Thanksgiving.  Did you know that the turkey you're going to enjoy on Thanksgiving Day this Thursday is probably halal?  If it's a Butterball turkey, then it certainly is — whether you like it or not. ... In a little-known strike against freedom, yet again, we are being forced into consuming meat slaughtered by means of a torturous method:  Islamic slaughter.  Halal slaughter involves cutting the trachea, the esophagus, and the jugular vein, and letting the blood drain out while saying "Bismillah allahu akbar" — in the name of Allah the greatest.  Many people refuse to eat it on religious grounds.

Tennessee State Rep. Rick Womick says no Muslims should be in U.S. military.  Muslims nationwide called for state officials in Tennessee to rebuke state Rep. Rick Womick for remarks he made that all Muslims be removed from the U.S. military.  Saleh Sbenaty of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, went further, saying Womick "needs to be impeached immediately."  Womick, though, stood by his comments and offered no apology when contacted byThe Daily News Journal.  "Who are we at war with?" Womick said.  "We are at war with al-Qaida and the Taliban, who are Muslims.  It's a Catch-22.  They are not allowed to kill their fellow Muslims; we're at war with Muslims.  The only solution I see is that they not be allowed in the military."

Hillary Clinton: 'I'm Trying to Increase the Number of Visas' for Iranian Students.  Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told BBC Persia Wednesday that the State Department plans to set up a "virtual embassy" in Tehran by the end of the year to answer questions about how Iranians can study or travel in the United States.  "I'm trying to increase the number of visas for students so that we have more Iranian students coming to study here.  We're trying to reach out to the Iranian people, and we've tried to reach out to the government, just not very successfully," she said in an interview with BBC Persia's Bahman Kalbasi.

The Editor says...
Oh yes, the Muslims are coming to this country to study, all right.  They're coming here to study the airports, the subways, the water supplies, the power plants, and the tallest buildings.

Welcome to the Islamist Middle East and It's Not Going to Be Moderate.  Ladies and gentlemen, liberals and conservatives, Obama-lovers and Obama-haters, no matter what your race, creed, gender, national origin, or level of unpaid college loans, two things should be clear to all of you:  First, to describe the Obama administration's Middle East policy as a disaster — I cannot think of a bigger, deadlier mess created by any U.S. foreign policy in the last century — is an understatement.  Second, the dominant analysis used by the media, academia, and the talking heads on television has proven dangerously wrong.  This includes the ideas that revolutionary Islamism doesn't exist, cannot be talked about, is not a threat, and that extreme radicals are really moderates.

Thank God These People Are on the Other Side of the World.  [Scroll down]  An incident that might take place on a playground in this country becomes an international incident in Pakistan with one of the highest public officials in the land assassinated while the crowds cheer.  Press coverage has been typically boring and mealy-mouthed.  The Voice of America found the whole thing emblematic of class conflict. ... Here's an alternative explanation to the story.  These people are crazy. ... The phobias, irrational fears, superstitions, and delusions that most cultures would ascribe to madness are part of daily life.  The place is a lunatic asylum. ... Forget about this "nation-building."  These people are incapable of holding a wedding or a funeral without somebody blowing himself up and taking half the crowd with him.

Islamic Terrorism is an Inside Job.  Muslim terrorists are a loosely affiliated global coalition of Muslim leaders, warlords, preachers, politicians, generals and tribes who are fighting to set up a global theocracy.

The Reluctant Assassination of Osama.  Bin Laden was an odd bird indeed, but odd in the sense that serial killers and mass murderers are odd, trapped in their own paranoid universes, not unlike Charles Manson, who lived under similar conditions at the Spahn Ranch.  And just like Manson, Osama was able to attract acolytes.  Unfortunately, however, in the case of the Saudi, those acolytes were exponentially more powerful and numerous, including, evidently, a significant portion of the Pakistani intelligence service and military.  Indeed, he still undoubtedly has millions, even hundreds of millions of acolytes.

How Immigration and Multiculuralism Destroyed Detroit:  [Scroll down]  If 50 percent illiteracy continues, we will see more homegrown terrorists spawned out of the Muslim ghettos of Detroit.  Illiteracy plus Islam equals walking human bombs.  You have already seen it in the Madrid, Spain, London, England and Paris, France with train bombings, subway bombings and riots.  As their numbers grow, so will their power to enact their barbaric Sharia Law that negates republican forms of government, first amendment rights and subjugates women to the lowest rungs on the human ladder.  We will see more honor killings by upset husbands, fathers and brothers that demand subjugation by their daughters, sisters and wives.

Ohio mosque designed to blend in, not stand out.  Central Ohio is home to a growing Muslim population of more than 25,000, or more than double what it was 10 years ago.

Who Is Deceiving Whom?  Muslims in France take over whole streets and hold open-air prayers in them.  This began some years back when Muslims gathered at the spot where Princess Diana died in the car accident, and prayed there as though at a shrine.  If you happen to live in such a street and want to leave or enter your house, or if you need to drive a car there, bad luck, the weight of numbers makes it impossible.  Muslims in this way are asserting that they already have a space of their own and the local French can do nothing about it.

It's Time for Rep. Peter King to Investigate Al-Jazeera.  In a major blow to Al-Jazeera's drive for acceptance and respectability in the West, the government of Israel says that one of the channel's correspondents has confessed to acting as an agent of the terrorist group Hamas.  The Israeli government also claims to have uncovered a network of Hamas operatives using Al-Jazeera as a cover.

Lessons from 9/11? What Lessons?  According to the elites, the hijackers happened to be Muslim — only in name, we have been constantly reassured — but were not produced by anything within Arab or Islamic society.  Even to ask whether anything in those worlds produced the 9/11 terrorists — or Britain's 7/7 terrorists, or Madrid's March 2004 terrorists, or Palestinian terrorists, or the Taliban, or Hamas — is to be a bigot, or an "Islamophobe," the ingenious post-9/11 label to describe anyone who merely asks such questions.

Can Islam Be Reformed?  Majority-Muslim and Islam-based countries are not, and have not been, free societies.  According to the 2010 Freedom House "Freedom in the World" survey, of the world's 47 Muslim-majority countries, only two are free, 18 are partly free, and 27 are not free.  There is no honest explanation for this nearly total absence of liberty in Muslim countries that does not reflect in some way on Islam.

Report Shows Terror Recruitment in U.S. Still a Problem.  A new report released by Republicans on the House Homeland Security Committee shows there's still a threat of Americans being recruited by Somali terror group and Al Qaeda ally Al Shabaab for the purpose of carrying out attacks in the U.S.  Committee chairman Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y. held a hearing Wednesday [7/27/2011] on Al Shabaab recruiting in America.  It was the third in a series of controversial "Muslim radicalization" hearings King has called.

Al-Qaeda plans cartoon recruiting film.  An al-Qaeda affiliate says it plans to roll out what some have called a Disney-like animated cartoon aimed at recruiting children to the terrorist network.

Prince of Lies.  "A Prince Among Slaves" was one of the more ambitious efforts to sell African-Americans on Islam.  Aired nationwide on PBS and still making a tour of the United States, the documentary claims to tell the story of an African Muslim prince who was sold into slavery in the South.  The story of Prince Abdul Rahman Ibrahima Sori is used as a springboard to incorporate Islam into American history, misrepresent it as an anti-slavery creed and convince African-Americans that their cultural background is Muslim. ... [But] The Prince was actually a vicious racist who was a mass murderer of Africans and a brutal plantation overseer.

Clinton Unzipped: One of the Worst Presidents Ever.  [Scroll down]  Here's a Clintonian snake pit we should smack a stick into:  after receiving campaign cash, Clinton appointed Abdurahman Alamoudi to select and train Muslim chaplains for the U.S. military.  Alamoudi is a charming, industrious man, who, nonetheless, is now serving 23 years in federal prison for Al Qaeda-linked plots.  So far, only one of his protégé chaplains has been arrested for espionage.

The Five Stages of Islam.  Forget the Five Pillars of Islam.  It is the Five Stages of Islam that threaten the fundamental freedoms of Western Democracy.  Freedoms which include freedom of thought, expression, and association and the crucial derived right of freedom of the press.  We should never forget that "Islam" means submission — the opposite of self-determination and Enlightenment values.

Why Muslim cultures lag behind.  State-owned Malaysian newspapers and television stations routinely run breathless stories about witch doctors ('bomoh'), evil spirits and other forms of the supernatural.  Visitors to Malaysia get a good laugh out of such quaint cultural practices, until they realize with a shock that Malaysian belief in such superstition is absolutely sincere.  But it's not just here in Malaysia where this happens.  In Saudi Arabia, witchcraft is considered very real and a capital offence.  In Iran, laws are on the books that make 'sorcery' a crime.  And in Iraq, many of the locals are absolutely convinced that American soldiers wear sunglasses that can see through clothing and have bases protected by force fields.

Why Egyptians Want War With Israel: It's in the Koran.  Fifty-four per cent of Egyptians want to scrap the Camp David accords that have kept an uneasy peace with Israel since 1979 — in yet another blow to the credibility of the many analysts and commentators who assured the American people that the Egyptian uprising heralded the dawn of a new, secular democracy there.  A new poll conducted by the Pew Research Center reveals that a significant number of Egyptians manifest a deeply ingrained Islamic antisemitism that leads them to hate Israel — and the Camp David accords — for religious, not political, reasons.

Radical Muslims, Environmentalists, and the Green Jihad.  [Scroll down]  Something like environmentalism can be easily used as a jihadist tool in the hands of a green Muslim to help sabotage America from within.  After all, [Abdul] Matin says that "Muslims have a personal connection to the color green," and that "the favorite color of the Prophet Muhammad was green."  More troubling is that Keith Ellison's pilgrimage to Mecca in 2008 was paid for by the Muslim American Society of Minnesota, which is just another name for the Muslim Brotherhood.

Islamic Law Comes to Dearborn.  The idea that Muslims in America would get violent because of [Pastor Terry] Jones speaks volumes about Muslims in America, does it not?  Why don't we don't see Muslims taking to the streets every time there is an honor killing, or a church bombing, or an act of jihad, jihad piracy, forced marriage, or child slavery?  Where are they?

What Would Jesus Do (with the Qur'an)?  We who believe in freedom are in a religious war, and it is time to acknowledge this obvious fact.  Our enemies aim at the destruction of our civilization, and the destruction of rationality itself.

A melting pot gone cold.  How far can the state go to require religious beliefs to conform to basic law?  You don't have to be a civil libertarian to feel a chill down your back in even putting the dilemma in such blunt terms.  France has become the second European country, after Belgium, to ban the niqab, the Muslim sack that Shariah law requires women to wear to hide everything but their eyes from the sight of (horrors) men.  Spain, Switzerland and the Netherlands are expected to follow.  The larger question, for which no one has an answer, is how to assimilate an alien culture in the absence of the melting pot.

Muslims Are Not a Minority.  The most persistent myth of the Western Dhimmi narrative is that Muslims are a minority and must receive special protection and accommodation.  But Muslims are not a minority.  There are 1.5 billion Sunni Muslims worldwide, outweighing Catholics as the next largest religious faction at 1.1 billion and Hindus at 1 billion.  They are still a minority of the overall population in Western countries, but a demographically trending majority.

No Exit.  The nut of the dilemma is captured in a word, Islam:  literal and figurative submission.  All notions of "peace" or co-existence are derivatives of submission.  And the coin of compromise is Western values and law, not Islamic dogma or doctrine.  The conflict between the West and Islam is a strategic zero-sum game.  If we continue to delude ourselves about the nature of this struggle, we do so at our peril.

The enemy within: Multicultural left ignores our homegrown terrorists.  For decades, Europe has been in the grip of an Islamist assault.  Largely ghettoized Muslim populations have become dangerously alienated from the European mainstream.  From Paris to Hamburg, Germany, radicalized imams preach the virtues of global jihad.  Subway systems in London and Madrid have been bombed; hundreds of civilians have been slaughtered.  Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh was murdered.  These atrocities were committed largely by homegrown terrorists — people who were either born or raised in European countries.  They felt no loyalty to their homelands.  Instead, they considered themselves part of the Muslim ummah, the international Islamic political community.  Their religious identity supersedes their national one.

The Enemy of My Enemy is My Friend.  On Thursday [3/10/2011], a local talk radio host who, like many Americans, was dumbstruck by the left's hysterical reaction to Peter King's Congressional hearings regarding Muslim radicalization, decided to read a list of terror plots to which this nation had been subjected since 9/11.  It took him more than half an hour to do so.  No doubt most Americans are under the impression that liberals oppose these hearings because they're "racist."  For the typically brainwashed, see-no-evil foot soldiers of progressivism, that's probably true.

The Editor says...
To believe that anti-Muslim sentiment is racist, you must first believe that Islam is a race.

The Muslim Brotherhood in America, Part I:  Understanding the Threat.  The national security apparatus of the United States has spent hundreds of billions of dollars to "make America safer," yet we still have not defined our enemy — or even tried.  There is no place in the national security structure which has objectively evaluated the threat doctrine of our enemy, and then created a strategic plan for victory for the United States — per U.S. warfighting doctrine.  This lack of strategic understanding of the nature of the threat we face is not only costing us lives on the battlefield in wars with no realistically stated objectives, but so long as we drift aimlessly, we cannot win and we allow the enemy to move our boat as he sees fit.  That, is the enemy's strategy.  And he is executing with great success.

"The Most Dangerous Islamist on Planet Earth" lives in Pennsylvania.  The latest documents from Wikileaks shows growing concern among U. S. officials over Fethullah Gulen's attempts to create a New Islamic World and the "braining washing of students" that takes place at his charter schools within the United States and throughout the Muslim world.  The cable that speaks of the "brain-washing" was written in 2009 by James Jeffrey, the U. S. Ambassador to Turkey.

FBI Launches investigation of Gulen and his movement.  Fethullah Gulen, dubbed "the most dangerous Islamist on planet earth," is now under investigation by the F.B.I. for his network of charter schools throughout the country.  The 140-plus charter schools, according to a newly released federal document, may serve as madrassahs where students are "brain-washed" to serve as proponents of the New Islamic World Order that Gulen purportedly seeks to create.

Islam on a Collision Course.  People have experienced what a primitive and defective system of belief Islam is, and they aim to abandon it for good.  In fact, millions of Iranians representing the entire spectrum of society are demanding change from the repressive Islamic theocracy to an open secular democracy.  Young Iranians, particularly the urban educated Iranians, are among the most ardent believers in democracy in the world.  Many view America as the country that holds the best hope for spreading and protecting the high ideals of democracy.

Why We Should Fear the Moslem Brother.  Perhaps you have heard the Moslem Brothers are the oldest and largest radical Islamic group, the grandfather of Hezbollah, Hamas, and al-Qaeda.  What you haven't been told is this:  the Moslem Brothers were a small, unpopular group of anti-modern fanatics unable to attract members, until they were adopted by Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich beginning in the 1930s.  Under the tutelage of the Third Reich, the Brothers started the modern jihadi movement, complete with a genocidal program against Jews.

The Meaning Of 'Allah Akbar!'  "Allah Akbar!" cheered Egyptian Muslims while trampling the remains of dozens of Christians eviscerated in last Friday's [12/31/2010] suicide bombing.  Yet we're assured that the phrase has nothing to do with Islam.

Secret Selling of Halal Meat in the U.S.:  The latest submission to Islam comes to us from the meat industry in both Europe and the United States.  Recently I have been reporting on the little-noted but explosive new revelations that much of the meat in Europe is being processed as halal and sold without the halal label.  This is not the exception, but the rule, and the people are being betrayed by their own elected officials.  And it's happening here, too.

UN, Islamists & Communists Push Global Internet Regime.  The United Nations and some of its most oppressive member states are clamoring for global regulation of the Internet, including possible censorship.  Toward that end, the UN is working to set up an "intergovernmental task force" to figure out how to better control the web at the international level and how to "harmonize" policing of Internet content.  Led by the Brazilian delegation, headed by "former" Marxist revolutionary Luiz Inacio "Lula" da Silva, advocates for the new Internet regime include some of the most despotic governments on earth.

Uncovering Radical Islam in America.  New York Rep. Peter King is under attack for his plan to hold hearings on the Muslim community's lack of cooperation with the government to stop the rising threat of homegrown radicalization when he becomes chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee.  King's investigation, though, is imperative, as even top Obama administration officials are warning of the frightening increase in acts of homegrown terrorism.

Feel Safe Yet?  Just imagine the possibility ... that jihadis would want to infiltrate the TSA, so as to place operatives in strategic positions who could then ensure that airport security became lax at the precisely opportune moment.

The Islamic tsunami.  Is an Islamic tidal wave coming? "There is a plan to take over Western civilization," warns David Rubin, "and we need to recognize it for what it is." ... According to Mr. Rubin, the first wave of the tsunami is Islamic terrorism, which he says is "a strategy intended to intimidate people so they won't speak out when the second wave hits."

Surrendered Nation.  When did we agree to surrender to Islam?  Seriously.  Whom did we appoint or elect to negotiate this surrender?  Our surrender has been parceled out in loss of freedom, accommodation and submission to Islamic supremacist demands, and in foreign policy that is supine before Iran and cozying up to the Taliban.  Explain to me how, after 9/11 and the tens of thousands of Islamic attacks across the world that have been committed in the name of jihad since then, as well as the myriad Muslim insurgencies in numerous countries, the accelerating destruction of Western civilization in Europe, and the hundreds of jihad plots that have been thwarted in the West, the American people were sacrificed without being consulted.

The New Evil Empire.  Dr. Jamie Glazov and his Canadian publisher, Mantua Books, have just published a new kind of "samizdat" which is the Russian word for self-publications written by dissidents and passed from hand to hand.  "Self-publishing" (by hand, on typewriters, on printing presses) was a 20th century way of dealing with Soviet government censorship.  The Russian authors and readers who were found with such writing in their possession were routinely subjected to harsh imprisonment.  Westerners, (and this includes Israel), do not live in a Soviet Gulag and are not subject to political censorship, but we do face a new kind of Orwellian censorship and self-censorship.  Independent and anti-totalitarian thinkers and activists are demonized, "disappeared," legally sued, threatened with death — and in the name of anti-racism and human rights.

The Ground Zero Mosque Holds the Key to the Attack on America.  Why did terrorists attack America on September 11, 2001?  We're a nation of 310 million freedom-loving Americans, protected by the greatest military the world has ever seen.  Did Osama bin Laden really think he could conquer the U.S.A. with nineteen jihadists, wielding boxcutters?  Yes.  And he may very well be right.  America is under siege from an enemy who doesn't need the blitzkrieg tactics of tanks, infantry, artillery and air power.  These enemy combatants use bursts of violence to terrify us; then, they smile and overwhelm us with floods of radical asylum seekers, hate preachers and Ph.D. students.  When the time is right, they unleash bare-knuckled threats and intimidation, demands for special privileges, decimation of our free speech, cooption of our ruling class, and relentless legal warfare, in which they turn our own laws against us.  Right now, they're winning.

A mosque building boom.  Forty years ago, the thought of granite counter tops, marble floors and indoor basketball gyms at Houston mosques seemed unthinkable.  But after decades of growth, the Muslim community is expanding and building new facilities at an unprecedented pace, with features and amenities that rival five-star hotels, leaders say.

The Law as Weapon:  Islamic supremacists are at war with freedom of speech in the West:  The 57-government Organization of the Islamic Conference has been campaigning for years now at the United Nations to compel Western states to criminalize "religious hatred" — that is, honest discussions of how Islamic jihadists use Islamic texts and teachings to justify violence and to recruit peaceful Muslims to their cause.  One little-noted weapon in this war is the courtroom:  using libel and defamation laws as weapons to cow critics and intimidate them into silence.  My courageous and indefatigable colleague Pamela Geller is the latest target.

The liberal love affair with Islam.  Liberals deride Christianity and Catholicism in particular for its strict approach towards sexuality, claiming that prohibitions against abortion, contraception, homosexual sex, and premarital sex are simply oppressive forms of prudish patriarchy.  But Islam is every bit as traditional on these matters; indeed, Muslim nations are the best allies the Vatican has at the U.N. in fighting against funding for third world family planning initiatives.  You can't reasonably deride one while accepting the other.  Furthermore, Islam goes way beyond Christianity by embracing doctrines that actually are oppressive, demeaning to women, and tyrannical.

Breaking the Siege Mentality of Airline Security.  We are under siege by Islam.  By Muslims, inside and outside our country.  The goal of their siege is to wear us down and beat us down to the point where we'll give them anything they ask for, so we can just have some peace.  To the point where we'll give up our freedoms, our religion and our country — and accept slavery, just to bring the terror to an end.

Awlaki Involved In Training Chaplains For Defense Department.  Terrorism expert Patrick S. Poole at Big Peace reports that Anwar al-Awlaki, recently named as the first U.S. citizen to be included on a CIA kill-or-capture order in the War on Terror, was formerly an instructor with the Institute for Islamic and Arabic Sciences in America.  The IIASA was a branch of the Ibn Saud Islamic University of Riyadh, and was certified to train Muslim chaplains for the Pentagon through 2003.

For Libs Who Just Got Scared.  Bill Maher, the biggest mud-thrower on the left, recently had his Juan Williams moment.  He's afraid that radical Islam will take over the world.  Ten million other libs who get their news from comedy shows can finally admit they're scared, too.  They were just waiting for PC permission to think what everybody else in the world has thought for decades.  Bill Maher has given them permission to feel fear.  Radical Islam should scare you.

London's Islamic Republic.  'Eurabia' has become a popularly employed neologism in recent years to describe the slow melding of cultures in Europe.  Those fearful of an eventual eclipse of European civilization by a fast growing Muslim population have emphasized Europe's ever widening acceptance of Muslim practices and beliefs — even when they directly conflict with notions of Western morality and accepted behavior.  But as events in London last week demonstrate, political developments on the continent may be fast outstripping the pace of cultural transformation.

The Odyssey of Islamism in America.  Islamism is a mutation of Islam and is rapidly advancing on two fronts.  In every Islamic country, it is cowing the non-radicals while recruiting more and more radicals into its ranks.  In non-Muslim lands, flush with petrodollars, Islamism is establishing itself as a formidable force by enlisting the disaffected and attracting the delusional liberals with its promises.  For the faithful, there is the added incentive of Allah's heaven and its irresistible attractions.

The World Has A Muslim Problem.  Jihadist thugs are now attacking us in the name of Islam.  No doubt there are a lot of Islamic believers who don't support this.  But like the Germans in World War II, they are not speaking up — for good reason of course, as there was a good reason back in the days of the Third Reich.  But because they aren't speaking up to oppose what is being done in their name, the world has a Muslim problem.  Everybody knows this.  Not many public figures dare to say it out loud.  Some public figures don't want to know it, much less say it out loud.

Islamic flag over the White House.  Islamists say the Koran is destined to rule America.  In fact, the Muslim takeover of the White House is not just an unfolding action plan but a directive from Muhammad himself.  In an interview Sunday on ABC's "This Week," British radical Muslim activist Anjem Choudary made clear what he and his Islamist brothers have planned for the West.

Islamophobia, Cartoon-O-Phobia and Equalityphobia.  Prime Minister Haji Abdul Razak of Malaysia has offered to help Obama overcome "Islamophobia" by sending "experts in Islamic studies" to America in order to correct misconceptions about Islam.  Malaysia's Deputy Education Minister, Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah, stated, "We qualify to send our experts as we have the experience of administering a country which is multi-ethnic, multicultural and multi-religious like the US."  Of course by multi-religious, he means Malaysia is an Islamic state which pervasively discriminates against non-Muslims.

The Specter of Muslim Disloyalty in America.  Islamist enmity for infidels, regularly manifested in the jihad, is by now moderately well known.  Lesser known, however, but of equal concern, is the mandate for Muslims to be loyal to fellow Muslims and Islam — a loyalty that all too often translates into disloyalty to all things non-Muslim, including the American people and their government.

The Keystone of the Islamic Milieu: Inbreeding.  All human cultures display strict prohibitions against inbreeding and consanguineous marriage.  Incest is a universal taboo.  This is a transcendent anthropological fact.  As a Roman Catholic, I attribute this to what is called "The Natural Law."  Every human person without exception is created by God with a deep, innate knowledge of good and evil, right and wrong.  Stabbing someone in the neck for no reason whatsoever is just as wrong here in Lone Tree, Colorado as it is in the Amazon basin, as it is on the high plateaus of Mongolia.  But there is one culture, one faux "religion," that expressly condones and encourages consanguineous marriage and breeding.  That system is Islam, and the document that explicitly ratifies incest is the Koran, specifically Sura 4 verse 23.

The Problem of Inbreeding in Islam.  There is a dire phenomenon rising in Europe that is crippling entire societies and yet the continent sleeps, refusing not only to confront the destructive elephant in the room, but also to admit its very existence.  The troubling reality being referred to is the widespread practice of Muslim inbreeding and the birth defects and social ills that it spawns.

Professor risks political storm over Muslim 'inbreeding'.  Prof Steve Jones, one of Britain's most eminent scientists, has warned that the level of inbreeding among the nation's Muslims is endangering the health of future generations.  The geneticist said that it was common in the Islamic world for men to marry their nieces and cousins.  He said that Bradford has a particular problem and warned that it could affect the health of children born into these marriages.

The Endless Wars of Islam.  Islam emerged from what is modern day Saudi Arabia in the 7th century, and never looked back.  Muslim armies swept across North Africa and invaded Catholic Spain, destroying or converting the Christian communities along the way.  They turned churches into mosques, and made Islam the official religion.  Muslim armies also took over the Holy Land, destroyed the last non-Islamic Persian empire, and moved into Asia Minor (modern day Turkey).  By the 16th century, Islam had destroyed the Christian Byzantine Empire, had taken over Constantinople, and had turned the Hagia Sophia — the most beautiful church in Christendom — into a mosque.  A century later, Muslim armies were outside the gates of Vienna.  While the years have passed and the names of the armies and countries have changed, Islam's war against the rest of us continues at full speed.

America's Odyssey with Islamic Terror:  The Failure to Retaliate.  The Islamic terror attacks of September 11, 2001 did not come as a bolt out of the blue. ... Two earlier attacks, however, and the lack of American retaliation to these attacks, might very well have paved the way for the atrocity of 9/11.  These two attacks were the Iranian takeover of the American embassy in Tehran in 1979 and the bombing massacre of the Marines in Beirut in 1983.

The roots of the left's love affair with Islam.  Postmodern identity politics, which has infected the left to a degree greater than its exponents know, views all conflicts through the lens of power.  The fundamental job of politics, in the eyes of the rank-and-file left-winger, is to lift up the oppressed, to empower the "wretched of the Earth."  This is why it can't bring itself to oppose Islamic fanaticism.  American leftists view Islam as under assault.

Where Will You Be When You Hear "Allahu Akbar"?  "Allahu Akbar" is normally translated as an exclamation of the greatness of Allah.  If you see a pattern in the type of people who use this phrase and the timing by which they employ it, you're at least more astute than Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, whose greatest concern following the Fort Hood attacks was that American Muslims might face "a backlash."

Islam is the New Communism.  Paul Hsieh wrote an excellent article about America's weakness in regards to the war against terrorists.  However, he claimed that the mosque is distracting us from the real issue of Iran's nuclear weapons program.  I respectfully disagree.  The real issue is that we are fighting a war with Islam.  The mosque, rather than distracting America, has brought her full attention to it.

Islam's Achievement Gap.  As the holy month of Ramadan has gotten underway, President Obama has intensified his longstanding mission to "remind us" of the progress and human advancement we all enjoy as a result of Islam and its practitioners. ... [But] how many Muslims have been Nobel Prize winners for science?  Just two:  Ahmed Zewail in 1999 for chemistry and Abdus Salam in 1979 for physics.  For those keeping score, ... that's two prize winners in more than a billion Muslims.

Muslim prayers welcome at Pentagon chapel.  Less than 100 feet from where a hijacked airplane slammed into the Pentagon, Muslim military personnel bring prayer rugs on weekday afternoons for group worship.

American Muslims Debate Loyalty to America.  American Muslims are debating key questions of loyalty to America, a debate in which the stakes could not be higher. ... The jihadists are intent upon the destruction of this country.  If moderate Muslims do exist, then it behooves them to fight the American traitors among us.  If American Muslims continue to reflect a conflicted relationship with their country of birth, putting Islam above all else, then other Americans will rightly conclude that a civil war is upon us — one that al-Qaeda is steadfastly perpetrating.

Obama Is Colluding with a New Fascist Imperialism.  Wherever Islamic fascists go, they first like to frighten and intimidate less warlike peoples — as in London today, where any BBC criticism of Islamic fascists is streng verboten.  That's what the Ground Zero Mosque and the Mohammed cartoon uproar have in common:  They are purposeful agitprop campaigns to scare and intimidate all the weak-willed liberals in the West, a standard Islamist tactic to conquer by intimidation, just as Muslim conquerors have always done.  Why bother to wage war when you can win by terror?

The Tolerant Pose.  Non-Muslims are barred from entering the cities of Mecca and Medina — not merely barred from building synagogues or churches, but barred, period, because their infidel feet are deemed unfit to touch the ground.  This is not an al-Qaeda principle.  Nor is it an "Islamist" principle.  It is Islam, pure and simple.

Lockerbie bomber:  still alive, kicking, and being honored.  This Friday the Muslim nation of Libya will be reaching out to the west by thanking Allah for the great wisdom and compassion of Gordon Brown and Kenny MacAskill.  To mark the first anniversary of Abdelbaset Al Megrahi's triumphant return to Libya, Colonal Gaddafi has called for a national day of prayer as part of a low-key celebration.

Under New American Management Al-Qaida Now Poses Inner Threat.  If al-Qaida looks and sounds different as we approach 9/11's ninth anniversary, it's because it's under new American management.  No fewer than four U.S. citizens and a permanent U.S. resident have risen to senior leadership posts.  These five English-speaking leaders are actively planning or facilitating attacks against their countrymen, while recruiting and radicalizing other American turncoats to carry them out.

Lambs to the Slaughter.  I used to scoff at writers such as Sam Harris, Kevin Phillips, and Chris Hedges when they warned that Christians were a major threat to American freedoms. ... But I wonder now if Christians, in their naivite and in their desire to be thought tolerant, aren't inadvertently paving the way for an eventual Islamic theocracy.  It seems that quite a number of Christian churches are now involved in "outreach" programs with local mosques.

Lessons from a Turkish Wedding.  In the world news, we read of a moment of horror at a wedding in Gaziantep, in southeastern Turkey.  During the celebration of his own wedding, as is all too common in the Middle East, Tevfik Altun, the groom, fired his AK-47 into the air, immediately lost control of it, and in an instant had killed his own father and two of his aunts, besides injuring eight others. ... Such a tale is easily dismissed as a moment of error, a single human tragedy due to basic carelessness, but there is more beneath the surface for Americans to heed:  How different a culture we have — how different is western civilization from the rest of the world.  It horrifies the left to say so, but this is indisputable.

None Dare Call It... What?  Former Speaker Newt Gingrich may be the most notable public figure in some time to state the obvious:  radical Islam is a clear and present danger to America.  In a speech last week at The American Enterprise Institute in Washington, Gingrich said, "this is not a war on terrorism ... this is a struggle with radical Islamists."  The problem, he said, is that too many leaders are "sleepwalking" and won't face the threat.

Say Yes to a National Muslim Holiday.  [Scroll down]  We should treat the various Muslim holidays as we have the birthdays of American presidents with the singular Presidents' Day.  My recommendation:  We roll all the Muslim holidays into one National Muslim Day and celebrate it on September 11 each year. ... Rather than working to educate us slow-learning Americans about the merits of holidays like Eid al-Fitr and the birthday of Mohammad, it seems most fitting that we celebrate the contributions and significance of Islam in America's history with one special day each September 11.  Mohammad likely does not enjoy birthday cards anyway because those cards too often are filled with cartoons and sketches.

The Islam I Left Behind.  Looking back, I see no particular time or event that, in one stroke, severed my link with Islam.  There was nothing nearly as dramatic as what reportedly happened to Paul on the road to Damascus transforming him from a rabid Christian persecutor to a devoted follower of Jesus.  My alienation with Islam started as far back as I could discern things.  More to the point, I never embraced Islam in the first place, although I was born and raised in a Muslim family.

Philadelphia's Islamist Boy Scouts.  [Scroll down]  Jawala Scouts or the Jawala Scout Youth Leadership Program, an Islamic paramilitary boys group, was incorporated in Philadelphia in August 2005.  It was founded a short time before that.  The children joining Jawala Scouts are as young as seven years of age.  This is disconcerting, when considering some of the activities of the group, which include hand-to-hand combat, firearms training and survival tactics.  Photographs from the group's official website show the kids dressed in military fatigues, hiking through the woods, and engaged in wrestling.  What makes things worse are the type of individuals linked to Jawala Scouts.

The Mosques of War.  [Scroll down]  After the conquest of Mecca in the year 630, Muhammad transformed the Black Stone in the Ka'aba, which ancient pagan Arabs had worshiped, into the paramount Islamic holy place.  It became known as the Masjid al-Haram, or Sacred Mosque.  During the Arab invasions of neighboring lands in the Middle East, North Africa, and beyond, under the new banner of Islam, numerous synagogues and churches were converted into mosques.  In Damascus, Syria, the church of St. John is now known as the Umayyad Mosque.  Also in Syria, the mosque of Job was originally a church.  The Islamic tide swept into Egypt, and many Christian Coptic churches were converted into mosques.  From North Africa, the conquests continued into Spain and Portugal, where again churches were converted into mosques.

Understanding Muslims' Mindset.  The Muslim's mind is imprinted with authoritarianism which starts with the supreme authority, Allah, through his one and only prophet, Muhammad, his Caliphs or Imams, and the high-ranking religious divines all the way down to the village clergy.  This authoritarian mentality encompasses all aspects of life for the Muslim:  the king and his dominion as the viceroy of God, the Amir and his despotic ways, the Khan and his unchallenged rule over the tribe, the village headsman and his extensive power, and finally the father and his iron grip at home over the women and children.  All these authority figures are male.

Muslim Enclaves U.S.A.  It seems almost unthinkable, but Islamist groups are, as we speak, hard at work creating Muslim states-within-states in the U.S.  Indeed, this process has been unfolding for a long time across the Western world, through the creation of isolated Muslim enclaves in both rural and urban areas, as well as through the designation of "no-go zones" where governments admit to having little authority over Muslims living there, essentially leaving them to function as autonomous regions.

Islamic Law Comes to Dearborn.  Is it illegal to preach Christianity to Muslims in America now?  Acts 17 Apologetics, a Christian evangelistic group, was banned from passing out fliers at this year's Arab Festival in Dearborn, Mich., but they went to the festival anyway and ended up getting arrested.

Radical Islamist Group Is Returning to Chicago for Major Recruitment Drive.  They're back.  A radical Islamist group critics say has links to Al Qaeda is gearing up to host its second annual U.S. recruiting event.  The group, Hizb ut-Tahrir America, which is committed to establishing a caliphate, or international Islamic empire, kicked up controversy in Chicago last year with its first U.S. conference, "Fall of Capitalism & Rise of Islam."

Osama bin Laden and jihadists love soccer and the World Cup.  We're not the only ones who love the World Cup.  Osama Bin Laden and his fellow jihadists do, too.  Several prominent Islamist organizations have ties to soccer, according to Newsweek.  And jihadists use the sport to bond with potential recruits.

Thousands Protest Mega-Mosque on D-Day!  Despite weather forecasts of thunderstorms, the skies were clear and beautiful Sunday afternoon for our Stop the Islamization of America (SIOA) rally against the Ground Zero mega-mosque, but not as beautiful as the patriotic crowd who came out to stand for freedom against this insulting manifestation of Islamic supremacism.  It was a real cross-section of humanity:  every race, creed, color and religion were out in all their glory.

Who Gets the Benefit of the Doubt?  Despite the willful denials of the Obama administration and progressives in general, most Americans understand we are at war with Islamic fascists determined to establish a worldwide, totalitarian, religious empire.  Yet even most conservatives insist that such people are only a miniscule segment of the Muslim community.  What if they're not?  And if, as stated above, we are at war, why we are so hell-bent on giving so-called "moderate" Muslims the benefit of the doubt?

The Left and Islam:  A Love Story.   [Scroll down]  For all their disagreements on matters like women's rights, gay rights and abortion, Islam and the Left are in harmony on big-picture matters:  They are authoritarian, totalitarian in the sense of wanting to control all aspects of human existence, virulently anti-capitalist, and regard the individual as existing merely to serve the collective.  Consequently, they have the same obstacle in common:  our freedom culture — i.e., Western liberalism, U.S. constitutional republicanism, and their foundation, individual liberty.  Historically, Islam and the Left ally when there is a common enemy.  But I'd stress that what I am talking about here is an alliance, not a merger.

Islam and the Left — Two Sides of the Same Coin.  The Islamists and the Leftists have the same goal.  Absolute power.  Islam like Communism is a means to that end.  This is what makes them so dangerous.  Their goal is to create absolute tyrannies based on ideologies that promise a better world.

Obama speaks softly and carries no stick at all.  We are at war with radical Islam, and that war will go on for many years.  For me, the question is this:  Will the secular Western civilization shared by America and Europe, which allows us to enjoy life and its creature comforts, still be standing at the end of that war?  Or will radical Islam, with an aggressive culture that treasures martyrdom and death over life, prevail?

Modern Liberalism & Islam:  An Uncanny Resemblance.  Both Neo-Liberalism and traditional Islam present unmistakable hallmarks of Fundamentalist thought.  (Neo-Liberalism defined here as the early 20th century attempt to hide socialism behind the term "liberalism.")  Arguably, the main fixation behind both ideologies is controlling others, seeing to it they obey all the rules.  In other words, both have a predilection towards totalitarianism.

30 Terrorist Plots Against the U.S. Foiled Since 9/11.  Sheer luck and civilian bravery played roles in thwarting some of these attacks.  Additionally, U.S. efforts in the war on terrorism, including operations in Afghanistan, have helped to weed out terrorist sanctuaries before they can organize attacks.  Finally, domestic counterterrorism tools put in place since 9/11 have helped stop terrorists from operating on U.S. soil.

Islam:  The Great Pandemic.  According to the Quran — the holiest book of Islam — Allah commanded Muhammad to instill fear into unbelievers. ... From what we know of Muhammad, is it unreasonable to conclude that he himself would be a member of al-Qaeda if he were alive today?

Islamic War On Free Speech Heating Up.  Four incidents recently showed anew how keenly Islamic supremacists want to shut down the freedom of speech — and how eager many Americans are to accommodate them.

Graham defends calling Islam inferior.  Evangelist Franklin Graham was the undisputed center of attention Thursday during National Day of Prayer observances in the nation's capital, putting in an early morning appearance outside the Pentagon, speaking to 350 people on Capitol Hill and then meeting the media at a press conference afterward.  Despite the controversy that attended his participation, Mr. Graham's message was unchanging and unapologetic — that Islam is inferior to Christianity.

I Am Proud of Franklin Graham.  Much has been made this week of Franklin Graham's comments both about the Ground Zero Mosque and Barack Obama's religion. ... The political elites in this world view Islam as, frankly, primitive.  "Well of course those crazy guys would believe in something like Sharia," think the secular political elites.  After all, they are several hundred years behind Christianity.  Christians have evolved — go to any Episcopalian church and you'll see a gay priest, a female priest, or what have you.  Christians like Graham, and me, are viewed with the same suspicion as muslim clerics who defend their faith, but Graham and you and me will be questioned because, after all, Christianity is supposed to be more evolved.

What's up with these 'incompetent' terrorists?  What's up with the Islamic terrorists?  Their latest failed attempt in Times Square does not stand alone in the litany of unsuccessful follow ups to 9/11.  There was the incompetent Nigerian underwear bomber during the Christmas season.  There was the infamous — and fortunately inept — shoe bomber, Richard Reid.  And there have been numerous other attempts, both publicized and unpublicized, in which the terrorists have failed to achieve any measurable success.

Obama Ignores Islamic Extremist Threat.  In June 1876, U.S. Army General George Armstrong Custer was defeated by Cheyenne Indians at the Battle of the Little Big Horn.  In what became known as "Custer's Last Stand," defeat was attributed primarily to a false assumption. ... One hundred thirty-four years later, a false assumption and lack of understanding by President Obama for a threat of a new era could well spell similar disaster — this time for an entire nation.

Detroit-area bus agency sued for rejecting aids encouraging Muslim defectors.  A group that says it helps Muslims quit their faith sued Detroit's regional transit system Friday [5/28/2010] for violating its First Amendment rights by rejecting bus ads that ask, "Fatwa on your head? ... Leaving Islam? Got questions? Get answers!"

Judge:  Lejeune can't ban car decals linking Islam, terrorism.  After his son was killed in the attack on the USS Cole, Jesse Nieto put decals on his car that included "Islam=Terrorism" and "We Died, They Rejoiced."  But the Marine Corps deemed the decals offensive and told them he had to remove them or he could not park on federal installations.  So he went to court, and won.

Bowing to Radical Islam.  On February 9, 2010, the Pompano Beach, Florida city commission granted the imam of the Islamic Center of South Florida (ICOSB), Hasan Sabri, the honor of giving the invocation at one of its bi-weekly commission meetings. ... Sabri began his prayer, otherwise known as Salaat, with the words, "A'uudhu billaahi minash shaitaan ar-Rajeem," which means "I seek refuge in Allah from Satan, the accursed."  After he completed the Arabic, he attempted to translate for the audience his recitation.  However, nothing close to the first statement would be found in the translation.  Was this deliberate or merely an oversight?

The Tragic Truth of War.  Victory has usually been defined throughout the ages as forcing the enemy to accept certain political objectives.  "Forcing" usually meant killing, capturing, or wounding men at arms.  In today's polite and politically correct society we seem to have forgotten that nasty but eternal truth in the confusing struggle to defeat radical Islamic terrorism.

Making Jihadists.  The great majority of jihadists emanate from the ranks of those born into the religion of Islam simply because they are the ones most thoroughly indoctrinated and influenced by Islamic dogma in their most receptive early years.  Yet there are others who embrace Islam in adulthood, on their own, and enlist themselves as devoted jihadists for the same rewards that Islam offers.

Wahhabism and the First Amendment.  The First Amendment seems to be the Wahabbi establishment's best friend here in the U.S. "First Amendment concerns" seem to be a principal reason why, for nearly 30 years, the U.S. government has turned a blind and even benign eye on the creation within the U.S. of a network of Wahabbist mosques and related Wahabbist entities paid for and frequently staffed by the Saudi establishment — a network now bearing bitter fruit.

Anwar al-Awlaki — The Terrorist from Central Casting.  Awlaki suffered no poverty, but came from a well-connected, wealthy Yemeni family.  He was born in the U.S. while his father sought an American education.  When his radical sympathies were disclosed, we get the usual "that can't be true" from his former mosque adherents, along with the even more usual apologies along the lines of "if we had only known his proclivities, we of course would have reported him."

The Educated Muslim Terrorist.  Nidal Hasan, Abdulmutallab and Humam al-Balawi are jihadists who were educated and came from privileged middle- and upper-class backgrounds.  Hasan was an American-trained U.S. Army doctor, Abdulmutallab was a London engineering student and the son of a wealthy Nigerian banker, and double-agent Dr. Humam al-Balawi was a member of the Jordanian professional class.

DHS Underestimates Muslim Resistance to Countering Domestic Terrorism.  Publicly, most Muslim and Arab organizations have said they oppose rising militancy and radicalization within their communities.  But privately, they seem to harbor distrust of law enforcement agencies and believe profiling, not radicalization, is the primary problem in the United States.

Islamic attacks on our airline industry.  The list of incidents involving Muslim passengers disrupting flight operations aboard domestic aircraft is increasing, while criminal charges against the suspicious and disruptive Muslim passengers are not.  Instead, accusations of racial profiling, alarmist and reactionary responses by the airlines, flight crews and passengers are becoming more widespread, despite the historical significance of such incidents and the consequential devastation and loss of life caused by these very same "dry runs" footnoted in the 9/11 Commission Report.

Cool!
Are IDF dogs trained to pounce all who say 'God is great' in Arabic?  The Israel Defense Forces has denied allegations that it trains its canines to attack anybody heard saying Allah Hu Akbar, Arabic for 'God is great.'  Israeli Arab MK Ahmed Tibi on Monday told the Knesset plenum that at a canine unit ceremony held the day before, parents of the soldiers witnessed demonstrations proving these allegations.

The Editor says...
The only thing wrong with this idea is that the Israelis are using trained dogs.  Instead, they should be using trained pigs that weigh about 500 pounds each.

TSA Hands Al-Qaeda Its Playbook.  Terrorists love details.  Al-Qaeda's U.S. embassy bombers knew the thickness of the embassy walls — a key detail in figuring out how much explosives were necessary to take the buildings down.  The Mumbai terrorists had copies of the floor plans to the Taj Mahal Hotel before beginning their three-day siege. ... Terrorists do homework.  They conduct intense reconnaissance missions so as to maximize the death toll on the day of their actual attacks.

Hard to Explain Away This Attack.  This is [an] opportunity to again rebut the canard that such terrorism is motivated by anti-Islamic discrimination or the desperate poor.  Following the 9/11 attacks, committed mostly by an assortment of reasonably well-educated bourgeois Arab Islamists acting on direct orders from al-Qaeda, this tired leftist trope was beaten back.  Like some of the 9/11 terrorists, Abdulmutalleb is a man of wealth and privilege, and he appears to have acted directly for an al-Qaeda offshoot in Yemen.

The Islamification of America, and the Emasculation of the U.S. Military.  It is well known that the Far Left and Islamic terrorists are in cahoots, as are liberals and "moderate" Muslims.  Both sides are using the other as "useful idiots" to further their agendas — one ideological, and the other theological.  One is using clandestine sabotage and subterfuge, while the other openly promotes global jihad.  Their common enemy is the "Great Satan" of the United States of America, which they agree, must be destroyed in order for their plans to proceed.  For the time being, they are in league with one another.

Hasan, Not KSM, Is Our Real Problem.  Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is an old-school jihadi. ... Hasan is new school.  He is what's known as a homegrown terrorist.  Virtually all the Islamic terrorist plots thwarted here in recent years were homegrown, not designed from afar by a KSM.

Enemy Combatants on American Soil.  Imam Siraj Wahhaj, from Brooklyn, NY, clarified our current situation with a statement he made in one of his numerous anti-American and Jihadist lectures during the late 1990s.  "The Muslims in America are the most strategically placed Muslims in the whole world.  America can't bomb them like they can in Iraq."  I have listened to hundreds of hours of Wahhaj lectures, have conducted first-hand research at his mosque in Brooklyn, have attended his lectures in Atlanta, GA, and in VA.  I am very confident Wahhaj and anyone who supports him (CAIR) is involved in supporting Islamic terror groups.

Former Hertz employees sue company over special "prayer breaks" given only to Muslims.  As important as the outcome of this case is the precedent it could set for extending special treatment to Muslim employees to the exclusion of others — essentially creating a second class of employees: workplace dhimmis.

20,000 gather for Eid al-Adha prayer in Dallas.  North Texas Muslims entered 20,000-strong Friday morning [11/27/2009] into the Dallas Convention Center, in native costumes of far-flung lands for communal prayer for one of the holiest days of the Islamic faith.  "This is the time to come together, to help each other and to understand each other," said Imam Yusuf Kavakci, the religious leader of the Dallas Central Mosque.

What's Liberating about Islam?  "What's liberating about Islam is that one is spared from having to think."  This, essentially, is how a woman explained to me the change that had taken place in her life since her conversion to Islam.  Since then, I've thought about her many times, especially because at that time I didn't know very much about Islam.  Now I've learned more, have gotten to know many more Muslims, and just begun to worry about her lack of thought.

Nidal Hasan and Fort Hood:  A Study in Muslim Doctrine.  While the media wonders in exasperation why he did it, offering the same old tired and trite reasons — he was "picked on," he was "mentally unbalanced" — the fact is his behavior comports well with certain Islamic doctrines.  As such, it behooves Americans to take a moment and familiarize themselves with the esotericisms of Islam.

Yesterday Communism, Today Radical Islam.  Although they seem different — one claims to be religious whereas the other was, supposedly, a perfect science — communism and political Islam are essentially the same.  Both are radical ideologies that divide the world into the elect and the profane.  Both deny individuality and suppress free will.  And both treat man-made dogma as infallible truth and seek to impose it by force.

What our founders couldn't foresee.  This once-great nation is coming apart at the seams. ... America has always welcomed immigrants who come here to become Americans.  Immigrants who come here with no intention of becoming Americans, or to become hyphenated Americans do not share our founders' belief system.  Black nationalism rejects the founders' belief system, and curses the nation they created.  The seams of American society are further tested as Muslim immigrants refuse to accept and integrate into American culture.  Instead, Islam insists that America accept its veils, custom, and culture.



The remarkably good health of Abdelbaset Ali Mohmet al-Megrahi

Attention Scotland:  You've been had.

Lockerbie Bomber, Dying or Faking?  When Scottish authorities granted a so-called compassionate release to convicted bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, the Libyan spy held responsible for blowing Pan Am Flight 103 out of the sky over the town of Lockerbie and killing 270 people in December 1988, he was supposed to be dead of prostate cancer within three months.  Two years later, the 59-year-old Megrahi ... is still alive and living in a palatial villa in Tripoli.

A terrorist's convenient coma.  Al-Megrahi, a former intelligence operative for Col. Moammar Gadhafi, was convicted in 2001 for his role in the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland.  All 259 people on the plane were killed, 189 of whom were Americans, along with 11 more innocents on the ground who were crushed under the wreckage.  Al-Megrahi was convicted of 270 counts of murder, probably the largest single conviction for terrorism in history.  He was sentenced to 27 years minimum.  In 2009, however, the terrorist was said to be suffering from terminal prostate cancer, with months or even weeks to live.

Mansion for Lockerbie bomber.  Opposition politicians in Scotland were angered over reports that the Lockerbie bomber is having a three-storey house built for him in Tripoli, which he visits in a chaffeur-driven Lamborghini.  Construction on the property began six months ago, around a year after Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi was released by justice secretary Kenny MacAskill on the basis of a three months to live.

The Lockerbie Files.  [Moammar Qaddafi's] former justice minister, Mustafa Abdel-Jalil, claims he has "proof that Qaddafi gave the order about Lockerbie."  He says the man who carried out the attack, Abdel al-Megrahi, received his instructions directly from Qaddafi, who used his fortune in oil to pressure the British government into releasing the dying mass murderer to Libya in 2009.  Two years later, al-Megrahi is still dying, after being welcomed home as a hero.  Ironically, he might outlive Qaddafi, although hopefully not by much.  Fox News ran the numbers and concluded he spent 11 days in jail for each of the 270 people he murdered, most of them Americans.

Not-so-dead man walking.  It was three months ago today, as Sen. Chuck Schumer recalls, that the Scottish government granted a "compassionate" release to convicted Lockerbie bomber Abdul Al-Megrahi on the grounds that he had terminal cancer — and less than three months to live.

Three months later...
Lockerbie bomber Megrahi release reaches six-month milestone.  Families who lost loved ones in the Lockerbie atrocity have called for the bomber's medical records to be published — exactly six months after he was freed.  US victims of the bombing said they wanted to see all the medical evidence that saw Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi released on the basis that he only had three months to live.

Row as opposition demand for Lockerbie bomber's medical records.  The Scottish government was under pressure Saturday to release medical documents for the Lockerbie bomber -- six months after he was released on compassionate grounds for having terminal cancer and supposedly only three months to live.

Lockerbie bomber Megrahi living in luxury villa.  The man convicted of the Lockerbie bombing is living with his family in a luxury villa in Libya six months after he was released from jail on compassionate grounds because he had less than three months to live.

Lockerbie bomber may beat cancer (but wasn't he sent back to Libya to die?)  Freed from his life sentence, the Lockerbie bomber was sent home by the Scots on compassionate grounds because he had 'just three months' to live.  But six months later, Abdelbaset Ali Mohamed al-Megrahi is still living — and doing it in the lap of luxury.

Cancer Drug May Keep Lockerbie Bomber Alive in Libya for 5 Years.  The Lockerbie bomber is at the center of a fresh row after it emerged he is taking a cancer drug that could keep him alive for five more years, The Sun reported.

Freed to die at home, Pan Am bomber is living large .  Seven months after his release from a Scottish prison on "compassionate" grounds, and four months after prostate cancer was supposed to have killed him, Pan Am Flight 103 bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi has had a miraculous turn for the better, death-wise.  How very surprising.

Essentially the same forecast was made six months ago.
Lockerbie bomber to die 'within next month'.  The Lockerbie bomber is expected to die "within four weeks" of the terminal cancer that led to his release from a British prison.

Gadhafi's son:  Lockerbie bomber is very sick.  The only man convicted of the Lockerbie bombing, released last year from a British prison on compassionate grounds, is alive but very sick, the son of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi said Tuesday [5/25/2010].

Dying Lockerbie bomber 'could survive for 10 years or more'.  The Lockerbie bomber could survive for 10 years or longer, according to a cancer specialist who last year said he would be dead within three months of his release.  Professor Karol Sikora, who assessed Abdelbaset Ali Mohmet al-Megrahi for the Libyan authorities almost a year ago, told The Sunday Times it was "embarrassing" the bomber had outlived his three-month prognosis.  Megrahi, 58, is the only person convicted of the 1988 bombing of a US Pan Am jumbo jet over Lockerbie, which left 270 dead.

Scotland to Aid U.S. Probe of Lockerbie Release.  The Scottish government said it is prepared to assist with a coming U.S. Senate hearing on its release last summer of convicted Lockerbie bomber Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, although it says it has yet to receive any specific requests from the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on the inquiry.

Lockerbie Probe May Prove Uncomfortable for Obama Administration.  The four Democratic U.S. senators probing the early release of the Libyan convicted in the Lockerbie bombing believe there were links to a BP oil deal, but their inquiry may have the unintended consequence of raising questions about just how strongly the Obama administration opposed the Libyan's release.

The Lockerbie Bomber:  What's the Story?  The bombing was generally believed to have been orchestrated by Libya's dictator, Muammar al-Gaddafi.  Megrahi was a Libyan intelligence officer and the head of security for Libyan Arab Airlines.  After a trial in the Netherlands, Megrahi was sentenced to life imprisonment with a recommendation that he not be eligible for parole for 20 years.  Why anyone would consider paroling a terrorist responsible for the deaths of 270 people is a question for another day.

Obama Approved Release of the Lockerbie Bomber.  Some folks in Scotland are angry enough to leak to the Guardian what many of us already suspected.  The Lockerbie bomber was released only with our approval — grudgingly given perhaps — but given nevertheless.

Secret Support for Lockerbie Terrorist Reveals Need for "Lies Czar" in White House.  Barack Obama desperately needs a "Lies Czar" to keep track of the president's lies so that The One can avoid tripping over his own words.  Obama's latest lie-gone-wrong gaffe involves the release of Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, AKA the Lockerbie bomber.  Just last week, Obama stated publicly that all Americans were "surprised, disappointed and angry" to learn of Megrahi's release.

Lawmakers demand Lockerbie bomber medical files.  Scottish lawmakers demanded Tuesday [8/10/2010] that their government publish full details of the medical advice that led to the release from prison of the Lockerbie bomber almost a year ago.

A Year On, Bomber's Release Spurs Calls.  U.S. senators ratcheted up pressure on the Scottish government over its decision to release the convicted Lockerbie bomber one year ago Friday, sending letters to U.K. and Scottish leaders demanding an array of medical, legal and diplomatic documents related to the release.

Still kicking — and laughing.  Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi just celebrated the first anniversary of his freedom.  That is, of the inexplicable decision to release him — the lone Libyan terrorist convicted in the 1988 Lockerbie bombing that murdered 270 innocents — from a Scottish prison on the "compassionate" grounds that he had only three months to live.

Oil For Scum.  Many have observed that the information relayed through WikiLeaks largely consists of confirming things we already knew, to the embarrassment of America and her allies.  Another such confirmation came last night, as the Associated Press reports leaked diplomatic cables verify the Lockerbie Bomber, Ali al-Megrahi, was indeed released because Libya threatened Britain's oil supply. ... How's Megrahi doing these days, over a year after he returned to Libya as a dying man?  He's super, thanks for asking!  He lives in fabulous luxury as a national hero, and honored guest of Libyan dictator Moammar Gaddafi, who also should not have outlived Pan Am.

The more we learn, the more it stinks.  What on earth was Sir Vincent Fean, Britain's ambassador to Libya, thinking of when he warned that Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi could "cut us off at the knees" if we refused to hand over Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, the only person to be convicted of the 1988 Lockerbie bombing that killed 270 people?  Has Libya suddenly become one of the world's leading superpowers?  Does a half-baked revolutionary zealot like Gaddafi really have the ability to damage Britain?  Admittedly Gaddafi caused us a great deal of discomfort during the 1980s when he thoughtfully provided the IRA with the Semtex they needed to carry out their campaign of terror against the British mainland.

'Megrahi near death' claims are just unfounded rumours — Scots officials.  The health of the Lockerbie bomber has "deteriorated signficantly" in recent days, Libyan leader Colonel Muammar al-Gaddafi said last night [12/9/2010].  "Every day is expected to be his last," a source close to the family of Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi is said to have told reporters, amid reports he had fallen into a coma.  But that prompted Scottish officials at East Renfrewshire Council — which monitors the terms of Megrahi's licence — to issue a statement yesterday morning saying claims the bomber was on the verge of death were "unfounded rumours".

U.K. officials greased Lockerbie bomber's release, report finds.  Intense political pressures and "commercial warfare" waged by the regime of Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi led to last year's release of the "unrepentant terrorist" who blew up Pan Am 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, according to a new report prepared by four U.S. senators.

Freeing a terrorist: Why the Lockerbie bomber was let go.  Only one person, Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, was convicted for this shocking atrocity.  Yet today, he is living peacefully, a free man, in Libya.  That is thanks to a decision by the Scottish government in August 2009 to release al-Megrahi to the Libyan government just eight years into a life sentence.  Saying that because of his terminal prostate cancer, he had less than three months to live, Edinburgh let him go on grounds of "compassion."  But so far, he's lived six times longer than forecast.  The question is why the authorities were so eager to ease the final days of a mass murderer, and thanks to a report by the British Cabinet Office, al-Megrahi's victims now have an answer.

Lockerbie Bomber Reportedly Blackmailed Qaddafi to Secure Release.  A former Libyan official says Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi blackmailed Libyan strongman Muammar Qaddafi into engineering Megrahi's release from a Scottish prison by threatening to reveal that the dictator ordered the Pan Am Flight 103 bombing, according to The Telegraph.

Barack Obama orders Lockerbie bomber al-Megrahi be seized.  The US President says the deportation of freed Abdul Baset Ali al-Megrahi is a condition of him backing the rebels if they win power.  Mr Obama wants Megrahi to be tried in the States for putting a bomb on the New York-bound jet that blew up over Lockerbie, Scotland, in 1988, a crime for which he was convicted by a Scottish court.

Libya: dilemma over defector's 'electrifying' Lockerbie information.  Moussa Koussa, the Libyan foreign minister, who fled to Britain on Wednesday [3/31/2011], is described as having "electrifying" information on Col Muammar Gaddafi's role in terrorist atrocities across Europe.  Yesterday the Prime Minister said he would not block any attempts by the police to question Mr Koussa.  Mr Cameron stressed that Mr Koussa had not been offered a deal in return for fleeing to Britain and had not been granted immunity from prosecution.

US puts a price on Lockerbie bomber.  US President Barack Obama had made a secret deal with Libyan rebel leaders to capture the freed Lockerbie bomber from Libya and return him to face justice in the US, the Mail on Sunday reported yesterday [7/3/2011].

Lockerbie bomber paraded on TV.  The Lockerbie bomber has been paraded on Libyan TV almost two years after his release from a UK prison because he was dying of cancer.  Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, 59, has been feted as a hero in his home country since he was released from jail in 2009 'on compassionate grounds'.

Lockerbie bomber 'appears on Libyan state television'.  Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi, was convicted and sentenced to life in prison for the bombing of Flight 103, in which 270 people died in 1988.  The broadcast showed pictures of Megrahi in a wheelchair and a voiceover described him as a victim of colonialism, according to BBC World.  The pictures compounded embarassment in the Scottish Executive which appears to have seized on a misdiagnosis to grant parole on medical grounds in 2009.

Lockerbie bomber: let me die in peace.  The Lockerbie bomber has used his first interview in two years to claim that his role in the atrocity was exaggerated, to distance himself from the Gaddafi regime and to ask that he should be allowed to die in peace.  After Libya's revolutionary fighters captured Tripoli in late August, Abdul Baset Ali al-Megrahi's family allowed CNN and the BBC to film him at his home in the city, apparently semi-comatose and close to death, to ward off demands that he should be returned to prison in Scotland.  He was using an oxygen mask and intravenous drip.

The Editor says...
Obviously his fragile condition was staged for the cameras.  All they had to do was put him in a Michael Jackson-like stupor and start recording.

Again?
Lockerbie bomber Megrahi critical in Libyan hospital, source says.  The convicted Lockerbie bomber Abdel Baset al Megrahi has been hospitalized in Tripoli, where he remained in critical condition Saturday, a source close to Megrahi's family said.

Son: Libyan convicted in Lockerbie bombing is dead.  Abdel Baset al-Megrahi, a Libyan intelligence officer who was the only person ever convicted in the 1988 Lockerbie bombing, died Sunday [5/20/2012] nearly three years after he was released from a Scottish prison to the outrage of the relatives of the attack's 270 victims.

The Editor says...
I would not want to be in Abdel's shoes now.

Lockerbie bombing: Hush-hush probe under way in Malta.  A secretive new investigation into the Lockerbie bombing has been launched in Malta, it was claimed yesterday [9/17/2012].  A report said Scottish prosecutors had asked the Maltese authorities to gather fresh evidence over the 1988 air disaster, caused by a bomb said to have originated on the island.  The Crown Office last night refused to confirm the claims.  It was reported that court hearings took place last week behind closed doors — and security was so tight courtroom peepholes were covered.

Was there a deal with Iran over Lockerbie bombing?  [Scroll down]  The one aspect of the inquiry that never made sense to me, as someone who has closely followed the Lockerbie case from the outset, was why Western investigators were so keen to overlook the activities of the PFLP bomb-making cell in Germany, which was caught red-handed making exactly the same kind of bomb — packed in a Toshiba radio cassette recorder — that brought down Pan Am flight 103.  I was told repeatedly that there was no DNA or other evidence to link the cell with the bombing, while there was certainly enough to implicate Libya and Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, the Libyan intelligence officer eventually convicted of the crime.

Remembering a victim of Pan Am Flight 103: The folly of "misplaced compassion" for jihadists.  Pan Am Flight 103 was blown up over Lockerbie, Scotland 28 years ago, standing as an early and bitter taste of radical Islamic terrorism that would come.  Such atrocities are far more commonplace now.  Post 9/11, the death toll scrolls along the bottom of the TV and we shrug.  What used to be shocking is now mundane as the corpses pile up.  Some progressives even refuse to label it for what it is:  Islamist terrorism.



Father of 9/11 Victim Fights to Have 'Murdered by Muslim Terrorists' Inscribed on Son's Memorial.  Peter Gadiel wants everyone to remember his son, James, who was killed during the September 11 terrorist attacks.  And he also wants people to remember how he died:  "Murdered by Muslim terrorists."  For Gadiel, any tribute to his son would be woefully incomplete without those words.  "I think it's important, because I think there's a nationwide effort to suppress the identity of the people who were involved in the attacks," Gadiel told Fox News.

NYC Marathon requires sniper teams, record number of sand trucks, blocker vehicles — courtesy of Islam.  Federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies are ramping up security for the TCS New York City Marathon that is set to go on as planned Sunday in the wake of the worst terrorist attack to hit the city since September 11, 2001.  Authorities are focusing on security after an ISIS-inspired terrorist drove a truck down a Manhattan bike path near the World Trade Center on Halloween, killing eight people and wounding more than a dozen others.  A record number of city sand trucks and New York Police Department blocker vehicles will be strategically lining roadways for the marathon, police Chief Carlos Gomez said Friday [11/3/2017].

Betraying Our Dead.  Eight years ago today, our homeland was attacked by fanatical Muslims inspired by Saudi Arabian bigotry.  Three thousand American citizens and residents died.  We resolved that we, the People, would never forget.  Then we forgot.  We've learned nothing.  Instead of cracking down on Islamist extremism, we've excused it.  Instead of killing terrorists, we free them.  Instead of relentlessly hunting Islamist madmen, we seek to appease them.

Jihadi Training Compounds, U.S.A.  A battle in the war against radical Islam in Detroit was briefly waged on October 28 when the FBI engaged in a deadly shootout with an extremist imam refusing to be arrested.  The imam was a leader in "Ummah," meaning "the brotherhood," a group said to consist of mostly African-Americans, many of whom converted in prison.  This group isn't the only one trying to create an Islamic state within the borders of the U.S., and this shoot-out should be expected, unfortunately, to be a sign of more violent conflict coming down the line in this country with Islamic militant groups.

Replacing Black Power With Militant Islam.  Even with the age of Obama dawning, for too many black Americans life is still fraught with the same old "us against them" sort of thinking.  Where once militant blacks paraded in pseudo military garb claiming the mantle of "black power" and patterning themselves as "panthers" thrusting an angry fist into the air, now they cling to the separatist ideals of militant Islam.

Islamic Nations Seek Legally Binding Way to Counter Religious 'Defamation'.  As support wanes for its campaign to secure controversial but non-binding "defamation of religion" resolutions at the United Nations, the Islamic bloc is pushing ahead with an alternative route — one that would carry the weight of international law.

Iran:  Not a Theocracy but a Thugocracy.  The mullahs are not insisting that Ahmadinejad stay in power whether or not he got most of the votes.  They are saying — and they are saying not only to the world, but to the Shiite Moslem citizens of Iran — that Ahmadinejad actually got most of the votes.  In other words, these representatives of pure Islam are lying to other Moslems — Moslems who are their fellow countrymen — about who won the election.  Islam does not only prohibit lying to other Moslems, it also condemns it.  Stealing is savagely punished.  The mullahs are stealing votes.  They are lying to those they pretend to protect.

Religious Cleansing in Iran.  'Every aspect of a non-Muslim is unclean," proclaimed Iran's late Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khomeini.  He explained that non-Muslims rank between "feces" and "the sweat of a camel that has consumed impure food."  Other prominent ayatollahs, including Ahmad Jannati, the current chairman of the Guardian Council, have made similar utterances.

Obama's State Department Submits to Islam.  Here is but the latest act of submission to Islam by your State Department.  A State Department cable has just been sent out with this announcement:  The Bureau of International Information Programs (IIP) has assembled a range of innovative and traditional tools to support Posts' outreach activities during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. ... Why aren't priests, pastors, etc. invited during Christmas to give blessings or talk about Christianity in the United States?

An Open Question to Osama Bin Laden — or Any Other Islamist.  The arch-terrorist's real reason for waging jihad has nothing to do with Israel or U.S. foreign policy.

Is another 9/11 set to unfold?  [Scroll down]  [Daniel J.] Hill said the next terrorist attack will involve suitcase nuclear bombs that will be detonated in small, low-flying two-seater private airplanes manned by men hanging onto the belief that, like the 9/11 hijackers, they are about to die as martyrs and enter paradise.  He is not alone in suggesting such a scenario.  A 2007 book, "The Day of Islam," spells out the details, as do any number of Internet sites about a plot called "American Hiroshima."

Fairfax approves expansion of Islamic academy.  Fairfax County supervisors on Monday [8/3/2009] narrowly voted to let a Saudi-funded Islamic prep school expand its campus on a hazardous country road, capping a months-long debate that mashed traffic concerns with accusations that the school's curriculum fosters religious intolerance.

Is Democracy the Killer of Liberty?  The very word "Islam" is derived from the root word of "taslim," which means submission, submission to the will and dictates of Allah as stipulated by Muhammad and elucidated by the medieval Islamic clerics.  Free people withstood the assaults of tyrannies such as fascism and communism and paid dearly in preserving liberty.  Now, liberty is once again in mortal danger.  This time, it's from Islam.  And democracy is indeed a great potential friend of the enemy.

A Tale of Two Constitutions.  Last Sunday's conference was titled, "The Fall of Capitalism and the Rise of Islam," and it's was held at the Hilton Hotel in a suburb of Chicago.  The shocking part of this story is that the majority of US lawmakers were silent about this gathering of avowed enemies of the US Constitution and American values.  Those who did speak out made certain to preface their remarks with the old cliché "they are exercising their First Amendment rights."  That was the rationale given by the management at Hilton Hotels, as well.

The Islamist Who Served on the Electoral College.  Election 2008 proved historic on a number of levels, but one milestone passed without the recognition it deserves.  When the Electoral College convened on December 15 to ratify the citizens' choice of Barack Obama as the next president, Jafar "Jeff" Siddiqui of Lynnwood, Washington, became the first known Islamist to cast an electoral vote.

Invasion By Immigration.  The late British parliamentarian Enoch Powell warned more than 40 years ago that Britain had to be mad to allow in 50,000 dependents of immigrants every year.  Powell, who was denounced as a racist and a xenophobe by the intellectual elites, compared it to watching a nation busily engaged in heaping up its own funeral pyre.  In retrospect, Powell looks like a prophet.

Fascism 101.  Nazism was supremacist.  Hitler preached that Germans and Aryans were a master race, born to rule the world.  Militant Islamists — whether Shiite (like Khomeini) or Sunni (like Osama bin Laden) — also are supremacist, though they substitute religion for race, the "Nation of Islam" for the German nation.  They claim Muslims — led by them — have a divine right to rule.  The Nazis believed their triumph would come through a glorious war.  The Islamists believe their triumph will come through a glorious holy war — a jihad against infidels and the West.  The Nazis believed that only men, not women, are fit to lead and wield power.  The Islamists concur.

NYC Muslims push to add holidays to school year.  Moneeb Hassan remembers having to choose between a final exam in American history or celebrating the Muslim holy day of Eid al-Adha.  In the end, he chose both.  Hassan, 17, is one of thousands of Muslim students in the city who must perform a balancing act between his academic and religious obligations during his holidays.  But the nation's largest school district hasn't sanctioned official Muslim holidays.  "People came to this country for freedom of religion," Hassan said.  "We're just asking for fair and equal treatment."

The Editor says...
You should think twice before asking for fair treatment in New York City, Moneeb.  They just might give it to you.

When You Lie Down with Pythons.  Nestled on lovely two-lane bypass, Popes Head Road, some 21 miles from Washington, DC, the Islamic Saudi Academy (ISA) is a private K-12 school founded and financed by the Government of Saudi Arabia.  The fully accredited ISA declares that it "promotes respect and mutual understanding between Muslims and non-Muslims, Arabs and Americans while keeping within the Muslim faith."

Imam at Windy City Islamist confab:
We'll fight til 'Islam Becomes Victorious or We Die in the Attempt'.  Hizb ut-Tahrir (HT), the international movement to re-establish an international Islamic state, or Caliphate, kicked off a new campaign to win American recruits Sunday afternoon [7/19/2009] in this Chicago suburb.  Nearly 300 people packed the Grand Ballroom of the Hilton Hotel for its Khalifah Conference on "The Fall of Capitalism and the Rise of Islam" to listen to HT ideologues blame capitalism for World War I and World War II; the U.S. subprime mortgage meltdown; the current violence in Iraq and Afghanistan; world poverty and malnutrition and inner-city drug use.

Pope expresses 'deep respect' for Islam.  Pope Benedict XVI expressed deep respect for Islam Friday [5/8/2009] and said he hopes the Catholic Church can play a role in Mideast peace as he began his first trip to the region, where he hopes to improve frayed ties with Muslims.

Civilization and Mosques:  The entire globe is Islam's religious ambition and field of conquest.  Bombings and attacks in New York and London, Madrid and Moscow, Bali and Mumbai, Jerusalem and Balsan, are not isolated or discrete instances of local theatre low-intensive assaults, but components of a pattern of coordinated and executed warfare of a very singular kind.

Where are the "separation of church and state" activists now?
Muslim Group Giving 100,000 Qur'ans to Elected Officials.  On the premise that nothing makes a better gift than a good book, a Muslim civil liberties group is launching a campaign to hand out 100,000 free copies of an expensive Arabic-English copy of the Qur'an to elected officials and influential policy makers.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is planning to announce their campaign at a press conference Tuesday [6/30/2009].

Hijab bullies want everyone to cover up.  Lawful Islamists use two general strategies to advance their agenda: they request that Muslims be granted special privileges and, more broadly, they seek to impose their ways on others.

The Other Intelligence Failure.  There is some kind of suicide-supply chain working in the Muslim world and in Iraq that is able to draw recruits, connect them with bomb makers and deploy them tactically against U.S. and Iraqi targets on an almost daily basis.  What is even more unnerving about these suicide bombers is that, unlike the Hamas crew in Israel, who produce videos of themselves, explain their rationale and say goodbye to families, virtually all the bombers in Iraq have blown themselves up without even telling us their names.

Nobody wants a terrorist for a neighbor.  President Barack Obama made a serious mistake when he decided to close the U.S. prison facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, without first figuring out where to put the 240 detainees held there.  Most of these people are hard-core jihadists whose main goal in life is to kill Americans.  Obama can call it an "overseas contingency operation," but for the Gitmo detainees it is a declared war against us and terrorism is their weapon of choice.

Man convicted in NY of trying to start terror camp.  A jury convicted a Lebanese-born Swede on Tuesday [5/12/2009] of plotting to help al-Qaida recruit by trying to set up a weapons-training post in Oregon and distributing terrorist training manuals over the Internet.

The Somali Pirates Are Jihadists.  Let's not lose sight of who [Captain Richard] Phillips' captors were.  His Somali pirate captors are Islamic jihadists, dedicated to the same goals as Osama bin Laden and other jihadists around the world.  In August 2008, when the pirates became especially active off the Horn of Africa, Andrew Mwangura, head of the East African Seafarers' Assistance Programme, declared that Al-Shabaab, a group of jihadists in Somalia, use piracy to fund their jihad:  "According to our information, the money they make from piracy and ransoms goes to support al-Shabaab activities onshore."

Where Credit Is Due.  The United States should start calling these "pirates" by their true name. They are Islamic terrorists who make millions in ransom from ship hijackings and kidnappings.  They don't buy fancy cars and big houses like members of some drug cartels.  Instead, they use the money to finance terrorism around the world.

Somali Pirates Form Unholy Alliance with Islamists.  Warships have done little to deter Somalia's pirates.  But following the latest spate of hijackings, the West plans to take a more robust approach to protecting shipping.  Intelligence agencies are alarmed at the pirates' increasingly close ties to Islamist groups.

Walking the plank.  All of the arguments of the wimp world view are predictably trotted out on issues like this:  that violence only begets more violence, that we shouldn't in our arrogance claim the right to police the high seas and summarily dispatch justice, that this and other problems can only be addressed in multilateral fashion with U.N. approval.  All of it is completely wrong.  Piracy is a criminal act and a criminal act only.

Show Me the Mullah.  I am struck by the lack of coverage in the media of the obvious beneficiary of the rise in Somali piracy.  Let's just ask the question; who stands to gain from this phenomenon?  It's pretty simple really.  The piracy in the northern Indian Ocean raises large sums of money for fundamentalist Mullahs and puts a big hurt on Suez Canal traffic.  This piracy is a de facto extension of the strategy behind the assassination of Anwar Sadat and busloads of foreign tourists.

War and Peace — and Deceit — in Islam (Part 1).  Amazingly, for all the talk that Islam is constantly being "misunderstood" or "misinterpreted" by "radicals," the fact is, as opposed to most other religions, Islam is a clearly defined faith admitting of no ambiguity:  indeed, according to Sharia (i.e., "Islam's way of life," more commonly translated as "Islamic law") every conceivable human act is categorized as being either forbidden, discouraged, permissible, recommended, or obligatory.  "Common sense" or "universal opinion" has little to do with Islam's notions of right and wrong.

War and Peace — and Deceit — in Islam (Part 2).  The fact that Islam legitimizes deceit during war cannot be all that surprising; as the saying goes, all's fair in love and war.  Moreover, non-Muslim thinkers and philosophers, such as Sun Tzu, Machiavelli, and Hobbes, all justified deceit in war.  The crucial difference, however, is that, according to all four recognized schools of Sunni jurisprudence, war against the infidel goes on in perpetuity — until "all chaos ceases, and all religion belongs to Allah" (Koran 8:39).

Clear and Present Danger.  The most dangerous men currently incarcerated at Guantánamo are the 14 "high value" detainees.  The Bush administration gave them this designation because they are uniquely lethal, having planned and participated in the most devastating terrorist attacks in history.  Their collective dossier includes, among other attacks, 9/11, the American embassy bombings (August 7, 1998), the USS Cole bombing (October 12, 2000), and the Bali bombings (October 12, 2002).  They are responsible for murdering thousands of civilians around the globe, from the eastern United States to Southeast Asia.  Had they not been captured, they surely would have murdered thousands more.

How Britain's mosques foster extremism.  Today, there are between 1,200 and 1,600 mosques in Britain — no definite figure exists.  Yesterday, the Charity Commission sought to gloss over the malaise in them by publishing figures on attendance, but not inquiring into difficult areas.  At Quilliam, Britain's first counter-extremism think-tank, we commissioned a poll of more than 1,000 mosques in 2008, during Ramadan when mosques are busiest.  Despite employing Urdu and Bengali-speaking researchers, we could poll only just over 500.  Most British mosques don't maintain a reception or service to answer questions, and not every one we did reach was willing to answer.

Imaginary Islamist Think-Tanks.  Despite what the pessimists say, there is one industry that is still flourishing in the UK.  It consists of Islamists establishing their own think-tanks and pressure groups.  They serve little purpose other than to bestow legitimacy upon ill-informed, extremist Muslim speakers, who can then attend conferences and get media access under the façade of expertise.

Playing on both sides of the fence...
Episcopal priest with Muslim beliefs defrocked.  An Episcopal priest has been defrocked for refusing to recant her faith in Islam, Rhode Island Bishop Geralyn Wolf said Wednesday [4/1/2009].  Ann Holmes Redding's expulsion from the priesthood was two years in the making.  Wolf first learned in June 2007 that Redding had become a Muslim when she recited the Shahadah — the Islam creed testifying to Allah as the only God and Muhammad as his prophet.

Who's Sorry Now?  In 2000, at a state dinner in Washington, Secretary of State Madeline Albright ... said the U.S. "must bear its full share of responsibility for the problems that have arisen in U.S.-Iranian relations."  Those problems presumably include Hezbollah, created and supported by Iran, killing 243 American soldiers in their Beirut barracks in 1983.  Before 9/11, Hezbollah was responsible for killing more Americans than any other terrorist group.  They have never apologized for this and other actions.

Free Speech Is Great, But ...  Accusations of "Islamophobia" have been used as a cudgel to shut down debate even in Canada, where Islamic groups have used the law to try to silence National Review's Mark Steyn and others.  We are seeing a similar dynamic here.  Obviously, the challenge that immigration-driven multiculturalism poses to free speech here is the decaf, low-calorie version of what Europe and Canada face.  The cultural distance between our society and the bulk of our immigrants is much smaller than in Europe, and we have a much stronger sense of ourselves, which has resulted in more success in getting newcomers to assimilate.

Islam-Speak:  It has become very clear that in the West, we have a fundamental misunderstanding of Islam.  Its history, guiding principles, and more importantly, what it means to a Muslim when he uses certain terms.  In order to understand what Muslims mean when they use a certain word, we must remember that in their minds and cultures, certain words do not mean anything like the accepted meaning we have for them in the West.

Taliban from Outer Space.  [Scroll down]  When girls and women are denied education or even health care and are executed by their own kin for minor infractions against the cult, how does that square with our insistence that all men want greater opportunities for the kids?  What about those Afghan parents who approve of or even encourage suicidal attacks by their sons?  This not only confounds our value system, but defies biological reason.

Human Rights vs. Islamic Rights.  [Scroll down]  The pre-cursor to the Cairo Declaration was the Universal Islamic Declaration of Human Rights, first proclaimed in the 1980's by the Islamic Council at the International Conference on the Prophet Mohammad and His Message.  The document was rooted in the belief that Allah alone is the law giver and the source of all laws. ... Cairo, unlike the UNDHR is anything but a religion-neutral document.  On the contrary, it overtly asserts that Islam is superior over other religions, and that the Islamic ummah is the "best nation".

South Florida:  Learn about Islam, ads say.  South Florida Muslims launched an ad campaign Tuesday with banners on more than 120 buses urging Floridians to learn more about Islam.  For eight weeks, buses in Broward and Miami-Dade counties will carry messages like "Islam:  Got Questions?  Get answers."

Educating the public about Islam is what this page is all about.

Hamas backers jailed in Texas.  Two founder members of what was once the biggest Muslim charity in the US have each been jailed for 65 years.  Shukri Abu Baker, 50, and Ghassan Elashi, 55, were convicted of channelling funds to the Palestinian militant group, Hamas.

Holy Land Foundation defendants guilty on all counts.  A jury on Monday [11/24/2008] determined that the Holy Land Foundation and five men who worked with the Muslim charity were guilty of three dozen counts related to the illegal funneling of at least $12 million to the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas.  The unanimous verdicts are a complete victory for the government, which streamlined its case after a mistrial last year, and worked hard to carefully educate jurors on the complex evidence presented in the massive case.

The dangerous illusion of independent terrorists.  It may be that since the 9/11 attacks in New York, the world has completely misconceived the age of terror.  The radical increase in the lethality, range, political consequence and strategic influence of terrorists comes not from their being non-state actors at all.  Instead it comes from their being sponsored by states.  Sometimes they are the instruments of states and at other times they make strategic alliances with states.  A terrorist group operating without any state sponsorship is an infinitely less dangerous outfit than a terrorist group operating with the co-operation of even the most ramshackle state.

Jewish Museum of Tolerance Is Intolerable to Muslims.  A planned Museum of Tolerance in western Jerusalem is creating another rift between Jews and Muslims.  An American Muslim group says the museum is going up on the site of a Muslim cemetery and it wants construction stopped.  Israel's supreme court, however, ruled that the museum is being built on land that's been used for decades as a parking lot without complaint from Muslims.

Fear and the Future of Islam:  Fear is a primal human emotion.  It is also a tool of the weak, the impatient, and those who having sensed a deficit of power, feel that they have no other recourse than to use it to subdue their presumed enemies.  These people are called terrorists.  But the terrorist does not seek to merely inspire fear for its own sake.  He seeks to bring about change.  He hopes that those whom he terrorizes will be persuaded to reconsider their positions.  Hence the terrorist is not only the weakest but also the least imaginative of all change agents.

Enough of Radical Islam.  Enough with the pseudonyms.  Western civilization isn't at war with terrorism any more than it is at war with grenades.  Western civilization is at war with militant Islam, which dominates Muslim communities all over the world.  Militant Islam isn't a tiny minority of otherwise goodhearted Muslims.  Its a dominant strain of evil that runs rampant in a population of well over 1 billion.

Messages From Mumbai:  The threat of Islamo-Nazi terror remains real and urgent, and Americans must not take our safety for granted.  While both the public and the president-elect focus almost exclusively on our dire economic challenges, we tend to dismiss the possibility of new terrorist attacks on American soil.

An American challenges England's 'libel tourism'.  [Saudi billionaire Khalid bin Mahfouz's] frenzied use of the High Court in London to silence the media began in earnest after the 9/11 attacks on America.  As a defendant in lawsuits brought by families of the 9/11 victims and others against al Qaida's financiers, he tries to squash any information about his activities.

The New Presumption of Transparency.  "If information cannot be freely exchanged, if journalists must fear being sued over information reported in good faith on matters crucial to our defense, matters such as the financial networks supporting jihadist terror, then we cannot make sound security policy," former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy said at a recent conference on "libel lawfare."  This is a useful term to describe lawsuits to suppress facts about radical Islam and terrorism.

Silencing Speech:  There are those members of the radical Muslim community who wish to silence their opponents via legal means.  The goal is to instill fear and to create an undue fiscal burden on those who speak out against them, so that the truth about their dangerous agendas will never reach the public.

Size of Islamist menace:  Gallup polled more than 50,000 Muslims across 10 countries and found that, if one defines radicals as those who deemed the 9/11 attacks "completely justified", their number constitutes about 7 percent of the total population.  But if one includes Muslims who considered the attacks "largely justified", their ranks jump to 13.5 percent.  Adding those who deemed the attacks "somewhat justified" boosts the number of radicals to 36.6 percent.  Which figure should one adopt?

You Must Remember This.  "We are in the process of an historical war between the World of Arrogance and the Islamic world," Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has declared, "and this war has been going on for hundreds of years."  "We are not fighting so that you will offer us something," said Hussein Massawi, a former leader of Hezbollah.  "We are fighting to eliminate you."  "Rome will become an advanced post for the Islamic conquests, which will spread though Europe in its entirety, and then will turn to the two Americas, even Eastern Europe," Yunis al-Astal, a Muslim cleric and Hamas parliamentarian has pledged.

Criminalizing Criticism of Islam:  There are strange happenings in the world of international jurisprudence that do not bode well for the future of free speech.  In an unprecedented case, a Jordanian court is prosecuting 12 Europeans in an extraterritorial attempt to silence the debate on radical Islam.  The prosecutor general in Amman charged the 12 with blasphemy, demeaning Islam and Muslim feelings, and slandering and insulting the prophet Muhammad in violation of the Jordanian Penal Code.  The charges are especially unusual because the alleged violations were not committed on Jordanian soil.

Iran and the Problem of Evil:  The world is simmering in the familiar rhetoric and actions of movements and regimes — from Hezbollah and al Qaeda to the Iranian Khomeinists and the Saudi Wahhabis — who swear to destroy us and others like us.  Like their 20th-century predecessors, they openly proclaim their intentions, and carry them out whenever and wherever they can.  Like our own 20th-century predecessors, we rarely take them seriously or act accordingly.

Islamic States and Thought Crimes:  The Thug's Ideal.  The topic of my talk was theocracy and Islamic law. Islamic governments, as ideological states founded on claims to divine revelation, must jail — or worse — those who speak out against the clerics.  This was the thug's ideal: In lieu of rationally demonstrating the "truth" of his beliefs, he would criminalize me, or jail me, or perhaps kill me, to stop the spread of ideas contrary to his.  In Iran, this ideal has already been achieved; there I would have been arrested, condemned, and thrown into solitary confinement.

To submit to the book is to exist in their hell.  It is a book that contends that the greatest act of worship an individual can aspire to is committing suicide, while taking the life of a sinner.  The author has 99 names but not one of them appears on the cover.  This book demands total submission by its readers.  And has captured the imagination of more than a billion people.

Truly endangered species:  The world is increasingly at risk from a far more imminent threat, one [Al] Gore and his ilk seem content to ignore.  In fact, the caviling about global warming can be seen as a deflection from a menace that is at hand and that risks turning vast human populations into endangered species:  the rapidly metastasizing, totalitarian ideology of our time that has come to be known as Islamofascism or, alternatively, Islamism.

Most suicide bombers are Muslim.  Suicide missions are not always religiously motivated, but according to Oxford University sociologist Diego Gambetta, editor of Making Sense of Suicide Missions, when religion is involved, the attackers are always Muslim.  Why?  The surprising answer is that Muslim suicide bombing has nothing to do with Islam or the Quran (except for two lines).  It has a lot to do with sex, or, in this case, the absence of sex.  What distinguishes Islam from other major religions is that it tolerates polygyny. ... It is the combination of polygyny and the promise of a large harem of virgins in heaven that motivates many young Muslim men to commit suicide bombings.

"-------" Terrorism.  Yesterday, Muneer Fareed, head of the Islamic Society of North America, called for John McCain to cease using the terms Muslim or Islamic in describing — Mohammedan? — terrorism. … In fact, it does no such thing.  The modifiers "Islamic" and "Muslim" are critical in helping to identify the methodology, motivation, and personnel working against us.  What does paint the moderate Muslim community "in a very negative way" is Fareed's evident refusal to face up to a blunt fact:  people calling themselves Muslims have waged a war against people they've labeled infidels.

Muslim Groups Take Issue With McCain's Vocabulary.  using the word "Islamic" to describe terrorists.  The Washington Times reports Islamic Society of North America's secretary general wants McCain to use something he calls "more acceptable to the Muslim community." … But McCain strategist Steve Schmidt says there will be no changes.  "The reality is, the hateful ideology which underpins bin Ladenism is properly described as radical Islamic extremism.  Senator McCain refers to it that way because that is what it is."

Muslim call to adopt Mecca time to replace GMT.  Mecca is the direction all Muslims face when they perform their daily prayers.  The call was issued at a conference held in the Gulf state of Qatar under the title:  Mecca, the Centre of the Earth, Theory and Practice.  One geologist argued that unlike other longitudes, Mecca's was in perfect alignment to magnetic north.  He said the English had imposed GMT on the rest of the world by force when Britain was a big colonial power, and it was about time that changed.

The Editor says...
Attention poorly educated Muslims:  The magnetic poles migrate, so no point is "perfectly aligned" with them for long.

Obama and Islamic Jihad.  It is conventional wisdom that the United States, or the West in general, can make the global jihad problem go away by doing something that is not being done now, or by stopping doing something else.  The possibility that the jihad might have arisen not as a reaction to actions of America and the West — and cannot be ended by our actions, either, with the possible exception of overwhelming military and cultural force — never seems to occur to anyone.

Jihad Comes to Wall Street.  If you've seen Geert Wilders's film Fitna, you may not have noticed a single headline amongst all the bombings, beheadings, and earnest expressions of Islam's eventual world domination:  Halal-fund:  investments for Muslims.  But the investment vehicles referenced are an essential part of radical Islam's efforts to insinuate itself into Western societies in order to destroy them from within.

I've never heard anybody say this before.
Imam casts doubt over existence of bin Laden.  The leader of Muslim imams in Norway said Monday [9/11/2006] that many Muslims feel they've been under collective suspicion since September 11, 2001.  He also questioned whether Osama bin Laden actually exists.

Why the Islamists will never win:  Their apocalyptic vision of a world violently subjugated to their benighted interpretation of the will of Allah is unattainable.

The War on Islamic Terror:  Four Key Concepts.  The war on terror represents the culmination of events set in motion centuries ago, back when the social evolution of humanity hit a fork in the road.  Down one path lay the Enlightenment, the path taken by predominantly Judeo-Christian peoples.  Down the other path lay a return to the Middle Ages, the path taken by predominantly Islamic peoples.

Evangelicals' issue:  Radical Islam.  From one perspective, branding "radical Islam" as a family values issue is yet another example of the broadening of the evangelical agenda.  But next November, it also could energize one of the Republican Party's key voting blocs, much like anti-gay marriage measures did in 2004.  "It's the ultimate life issue," said Rick Scarborough, president of the Texas-based conservative Christian group Vision America.  "If radical Islam succeeds in its ultimate goals, Christianity ceases to exist."

Thanks but No Thanksgiving.  [S]ome Muslims in the West seem to be making the argument … that Islam cannot integrate smoothly, or is entirely incompatible, with Western values and traditions. … A Toronto mosque called, National Post reports, The Khalid Bin Al-Walid Mosque says to "avoid participating" in dinners, parties or greetings on Thanksgiving because it is a kuffaar, or non-Muslim, celebration.  Not only is this surprising, but the term kuffaar is a derogatory one meaning "ingrate" that was once applied to slaves.

How I nearly lost my business.  It seems too lunatic to be true.  But here a hair salon boss reveals how she was driven to the brink of ruin — and forced to pay £4,000 for 'hurt feelings' — after refusing to hire a Muslim stylist who wouldn't show her hair at work.

Minister warns of 'inbred' Muslims.  A government minister has warned that inbreeding among immigrants is causing a surge in birth defects — comments likely to spark a new row over the place of Muslims in British society.  Phil Woolas, an environment minister, said the culture of arranged marriages between first cousins was the "elephant in the room".

The gene pool needs some chlorine!
Research reveals new syndrome in inbred Arab family.  Researchers at Haifa's Rambam Medical Center and the Technion's medical school have for the first time identified a rare syndrome — among five of 11 children born to Israeli Arab first cousins who married — that combines baldness, mental retardation and neurological problems that make walking difficult.

Don't Pity the Polar Bear, Pity the Endangered Liberal.  The Polar Bear population has actually been on the rise and while theoretical climate change computer models may claim that the Polar Bear will be in trouble — all told the Polar has it pretty good.  For one thing … the Polar Bear can fairly safely cross from floe to floe without expecting to encounter a suicide bomber, an Iranian missile or some hate imprinted denizen of the Middle East who has been fasting for a month and thinks Polar Bears are an abomination unless draped in black sackcloth.  That is the Polar Bear is fairly safe because unlike the rest of us, it lives far up North and well away from any major Islamic population centers, which are the real threat.

Islam's War for World Mastery:  "During the Cold War, two things came to be known and generally recognized in the Middle East concerning the two rival superpowers.  If you did anything to annoy the Russians, punishment would be swift and dire.  If you said or did anything against the Americans, not only would there be no punishment; there might even be some possibility of reward."  Thus wrote the eminent historian Bernard Lewis in Wednesday's Wall Street Journal.

Radical Islam, not Bush, is the enemy.  Before I mention the possible consequences of leaving Iraq, I'd like to mention an often overlooked result of our pulling out of Vietnam in 1973.  Within two years of our leaving Southeast Asia, much of that region had fallen to brutal communist regimes, and several million innocent civilians were slaughtered by the communist Khmer Rouge in the killing fields of Cambodia, as well as hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese killed by their new communist government.  The United States, the United Nations and the rest of the world did nothing.  However, as bad as this was, it will be small compared to what will likely happen when we withdraw from Iraq with our tails tucked between our legs yet again.

Why radical Islam — and why now?  Read any newspaper or turn on any news broadcast and you're bound to encounter stories of Islamic radicals fighting, killing and threatening each other — and just about everyone else. ... Shiite and Sunni militias, each claiming to represent true Islam, keep slaughtering each other in Iraq.

Lurching toward radicalism.  The homegrown plot to blow up transatlantic flights has intensified fears that the 1.6 million Muslims in Britain are rejecting political tolerance and free speech for a violent, radicalized version of Islam.  Do British Muslims really pose a threat to that country and its traditional values?  Some answers are provided by the most comprehensive survey to date of Muslim opinion in Britain.

Free CDs won't stop terrorists.  The [British] Prime Minister is known to be increasingly frustrated by the failure of the Government's existing strategy for ensuring that Muslims in Britain understand, absorb and adopt British values, especially those of tolerance, and the renunciation of terrorism.  That strategy, whose ethos is summed up by the broad banner of "multiculturalism", has been a spectacular failure.  The present generation of Muslims is, if anything, less integrated, more isolated, and more hostile to British values than its parents were.

If You're a Muslim — It's Your Problem.  When will the Muslims of Britain stand up to be counted?  When will they declare, loud and clear, with no qualifications or quibbles about Britain's foreign policy, that Islamic terrorism is WRONG?  Most of all, when will the Muslim community in this country accept an absolute, undeniable, total truth:  that Islamic terrorism is THEIR problem?  THEY own it.  And it is THEIR duty to face it and eradicate it.

Information on Islam:  History and archeology show clearly that Allah was worshipped as a pagan moon god long before Mohammed came on the scene.  Robert Morey, author of The Islamic Invasion, explains:
"Islam's origins have been traced back by scholars to the ancient fertility religion of the worship of the moon god which was always the dominant religion of Arabia.  The moon god was worshipped by praying toward Mecca several times a day, making an annual pilgrimage to the Kabah which was a temple of the moon god, running around the Kabah seven times, caressing an idol of a black stone set in the wall of the Kabah, running between two hills, making animal sacrifices, gathering on Fridays for prayers, giving alms to the poor, etc.  These were pagan rites practiced by the Arabs long before Muhammad was born."

What it means to live by Muhammad's words and deeds:  Every aspect of Islamic practice and belief finds its basis in Muhammad's words and deeds. ... The mistreatment of women, polygamy, child-marriage, stoning of adulterers, cutting off the hands of thieves, mutilation of enemy corpses, the sentence of death for apostasy, the subjection of dhimmi or Christians and Jews, even the killing of writers who displease the faithful — all have their precedents in the things Muhammad said and did.

Multiple wives will mean multiple benefits.  Husbands with multiple wives have been given the go-ahead to claim extra welfare benefits following a year-long Government review, The Sunday Telegraph can reveal.  Even though bigamy is a crime in Britain, the decision by ministers means that polygamous marriages can now be recognised formally by the state, so long as the weddings took place in countries where the arrangement is legal.  The outcome will chiefly benefit Muslim men with more than one wife, as is permitted under Islamic law.

Georgia Mayor Converts to Islam.  Mayor Jack Ellis has converted to Islam and is working to change his legal name to Hakim Mansour Ellis.  Ellis, 61, a Macon native who was raised Christian, said he became a Sunni Muslim during a December ceremony in the west African nation of Senegal.

The D'Souza Follies:  Today's jihadist predilection for suicide attacks is a matter of technological progress making possible what had hitherto been impossible; it does not represent a theological divergence from traditional Islam.  Suicide attack recruiters today point to Qur'an 9:111, which guarantees Paradise to those who "kill and are killed" for Allah.  This was not added into the Qur'an by contemporary Muslims, and has been acted upon by Muslims in the past:  Andrew Bostom has found that John Paul Jones encountered suicide attacks by Muslim Turks in 1788.

The Colonial War Against Islam:  America has been fighting Islamists for longer than many realize.  Even before independence was declared, American ships were pirated and their Christian crews enslaved by Muslim pirates operating under the control of the "Dey of Algiers" — an Ottoman Islamist warlord ruling Algeria.  When the colonists rebelled against British rule in 1776, American ships lost Royal Navy protection.  A Revolutionary War-era alliance with France offered French protection to US ships, but it expired in 1783.

A courageous voice against the Muslim bullyboys.  The Giraffe Heroes Project is an American organisation that celebrates the lives of ordinary people who stick their necks out for the common good.  As its president, Anne Medlock, writes:  "In stories back to the dawn of time, the healing of the wasteland has come only when someone refuses to be passive and summons up the courage to ignore all the naysayers, go forth, and slay whatever dragon has scared everybody else into terrified passivity.

The Dark Ages — Live From the Middle East!  Who would have thought centuries after the Enlightenment that sophisticated Europeans — in fear of radical Islamists — would be afraid to write a novel, put on an opera, draw a cartoon, film a documentary or have their pope discuss comparative theology?

The veiled conceit of multiculturalism.  How tolerant must a free society be of those who are intolerant of the values it holds dear?  This question is at the heart of a controversy that has flared up in Britain over the past fortnight concerning Muslim women who wear nikabs, burkas and other face coverings that allow little more than the eyes to be seen.

John Conyers And The Muslim Caucus.  The likely new chairman of the House Judiciary Committee says he's just fighting bigotry in leading a Democrat jihad to deny law enforcement key terror-fighting tools.  But he is in the pocket of Islamists.  John Conyers, son of a leftist Detroit union activist, represents the largest Arab population in the country.  His district includes Dearborn, Mich., nicknamed "Dearbornistan" by locals fed up with cultural encroachment and terror fears from a steady influx of Mideast immigrants.

Britain stops talk of 'war on terror'.  Cabinet ministers have been told by the Foreign Office to drop the phrase 'war on terror' and other terms seen as liable to anger British Muslims and increase tensions more broadly in the Islamic world.  The shift marks a turning point in British political thinking about the strategy against extremism and underlines the growing gulf between the British and American approaches to the continuing problem of radical Islamic militancy.

Brits End the "War on Terror".  If Muslim leaders are correct when saying that the bin Ladens, al-Zawahiris, and Hassan Nasrallahs of the world don't equal Islam, then it inextricably follows that our actions against those terrorists do not equal an attack on Islam — once separated, always separated. As I've argued before, if it's wrong to assume guilt based on ethnicity, then it's equally wrong to shield guilt based on ethnicity.  Why is this concept such a daunting challenge to surmount?

Females fight ritual mutilation.  Siham Rabiyah was 12 when her uncles sliced her genitals to uphold her family honour.  She remembers the searing pain, the crowd around her and the blood, but little else about the day of her mutilation in the coastal Yemeni city of Aden. ... From behind her black burka in Sana'a, the capital of Yemen, Siham says she wants to talk about what happened to her to highlight the practice of female circumcision, which is still ritually performed in many areas of coastal Yemen and throughout the Middle East.

Better late than never.
Adopt our values or stay away, says Blair.  Tony Blair formally declared Britain's multicultural experiment over yesterday [12/09/2006] as he told immigrants they had "a duty" to integrate with the mainstream of society.  In a speech that overturned more than three decades of Labour support for the idea, he set out a series of requirements that were now expected from ethnic minority groups if they wished to call themselves British.

Submit or Die.  Many commentators have noted the apparent irony:  The pope suggests Islam encourages violence — and Muslims riot in protest.  Many commentators have pointed out the apparent hypocrisy:  Muslims are outraged by cartoons satirizing Islamic extremism while in Muslim countries Christianity and Judaism are attacked viciously and routinely.  Many commentators are missing the point:  These protesters — and those who incite them — are not asking for mutual respect and equality.

Terrorists' excuse du jour.  If you've ever stood up to a bully, you know how this works.  Confrontation tends to increase the chances of violence in the short term but decreases its likelihood in the long term.  Any hunter will tell you that the most dangerous moment is when you've cornered an animal, and any cop will tell you that standing up to muggers puts you in danger.

Children As Bombs:  As if things weren't crazy enough already in the Middle East, here's the officially sanctioned message in sixth-grade Palestinian textbooks for 11- and 12-year-old kids:  "The noble soul has two goals:  death and the desire for it."  The goal isn't to build magnificent skyscrapers or write brilliant novels or to work on cures for the world's most lethal diseases.  The noble goal for the noble soul is as simple as strapping on a dynamite belt and blowing oneself into a million pieces in an Israeli pizza shop.

No more ambulances for terror.  What kind of cold-blooded thugs use ambulances as killing aids or propaganda tools?  Islamic terrorists, of course, have an unsurpassed history of using emergency vehicles as tools of their murderous trade.  International charities and media dupes have gone along for the ride.

8-10-2006 — Was This Meant As Next 9/11?  Its scope was ruthlessly ambitious, causing destruction officials say would have been "unimaginable."  The alleged plot to take down several U.S.-bound planes with liquid explosives appears to be unlike anything the world has seen in years.

It's Fascism — And It's Islamic.  George Bush recently declared that we are at war with "Islamic fascism."  Muslim-American groups were quick to express furor at the expression.  Middle Eastern autocracies complained that it was provocative and insensitive.  Critics of the term chosen by the president, however, should remember what al-Qaida, the Taliban, Hezbollah, Hamas and other extremist Muslim groups have said and done.  Like the fascists of the 1930s, the leaders of these groups are authoritarians who brook no dissent in their efforts to impose a comprehensive system of submission upon the unwilling.

The Islamofascist threat.  If a small nuclear bomb went off in Grand Central Station, there would be no known enemy to bomb in return.  If this is a real threat, then the war in Iraq makes sense.

Do profile; don't tell.  In the wake of last week's foiled terrorist plot to blow up 10 U.S. jetliners flying between Britain and the United States, sensible people are reconsidering our government's stubborn opposition to profiling.

At last!
Green Light For Profiling.  Nearly seven years after the 9-11 attacks, the Bush administration is finally reconsidering its opposition to one of the most effective counterterrorism weapons at its disposal.  In the months ahead, FBI agents may be able to profile potential terrorists on the basis of suspicious traits and activities, including their ethnic and religious backgrounds.  Those most likely to commit acts of Islamic terrorism will no longer be able to hide in plain sight.

The ACLU Continues Its Onslaught.  Israeli security agents and police have used kinetic interviewing for screening people at airports and security checkpoints for years with much success.  In a press release the ACLU has warned that the behavior analysis screening technique could result in racial profiling.  Could result?  Creating public policy based on what "could result" is nonsense since in this case the ACLU insinuates bad intentions on the part of US security and law enforcement agencies.

Terrorists do not share our vision of peace.  We have to ask ourselves what motivates someone to perpetrate such an act:  boarding an aircraft, carrying explosives, intending to kill themselves and hundreds around them.  It is entirely right to ask that question.  But it is vital that we do not jump to facile conclusions and clutch at easy answers.

British Doctor Is Convicted in Failed Car Bombings.  A jury found the doctor, Bilal Abdulla, a passenger in the Jeep Cherokee, guilty of two charges of conspiracy to commit murder and conspiracy to cause explosions in three bungled car bombing attempts in Glasgow and London over 24 hours.  The judge, Sir Colin Crichton Mackay, will sentence Dr. Abdulla on Wednesday [12/17/2008].  Both charges carry potential life sentences.



Lost and Found:  Eleven Egyptian Students

Why are Middle-eastern students allowed into this country at all?  Any time a bunch of them arrive in the U.S. to attend flight school, or any other schoool, and then they disappear, it is cause for alarm.  It is reason enough to deport them, before they disappear again.  If the decision makers at the highest levels of the federal government used common sense, and were not afraid to be politically incorrect, they wouldn't allow anyone to immigrate to this country from predominantly Muslim countries.  As long as these "students" continue to come here, they should be under constant surveillance.

FBI Searching For 11 Egyptian Students.  Eleven Egyptian students who arrived in the United States last month are being sought by authorities after failing to turn up for an exchange program at Montana State University.  The Egyptian men were among a group of 17 students who arrived at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York from Cairo on July 29 with valid visas, according to U.S. authorities and university officials.

What war on terror?  FBI Special Agent Richard Kolko practically scolded us civilians when 11 Egyptian men from Cairo went missing after entering the country on education visas.  The men, all in their 20's, just vanished at JFK (one of the airports of now distant 9/11 memory).  "There is no reason to believe the missing students, all men around 20 years old, represent a threat," charmed Kolko.  "At this point, all they have done is not show up for a scheduled academic program, and their visas have been revoked."  The next day he reiterated the plea, "They pose no threat."

All Missing Egyptian Students in Custody.  The last two of the 11 Egyptian exchange students who failed to show up at their college program were apprehended Sunday in Richmond, Va., customs officials said.

Update:
Last of 11 missing Egyptian students rounded up.  A nationwide search for 11 Egyptian students who failed to show up for an academic program in Montana has ended with the last two caught outside their rented apartment in Virginia, U.S. authorities said on Monday [8/14/2006].



A Few More Little Facts.  The line of the fight between civilization and barbarism runs right along the Israel-Lebanon non-border.  If it's not won there, it won't be long until the front line is right here, and then it will be too late.  When George Bush stands up for Israel, he stands up for the whole future of mankind.

Islamofascism — an enemy like no other.  "If other people in al Qaeda are really as sadistic as this guy seems to be, then we're really in for a long and awful war."  National Public Radio's Daniel Schorr made this comment about the anti-American courtroom tirade of Zacarias Moussaoui, the so-called 20th hijacker.  Yes, Mr. Schorr, the Islamofascists — the ones who want us dead — are, indeed, that "sadistic."  This shows that a lot of people, who should know better, still don't get it.

Democracy didn't stop British terrorists.  So why have native Brits been implicated for the second time in little more than a year (the London subway bombings was the first) in an Islamist conspiracy to commit mass murder?  All 23 alleged conspirators held in Britain in connection with the latest plot were reportedly British born and raised.  British oppression did not create these suspected terrorists.  A radical Islamic ideology did.

Profile in sanity.  Osama and his pals must take great joy at watching 80-year-old grandmothers being patted down and their creams confiscated by jumpy security people. ... Of course, the sane way to protect Americans in the sky is to stop looking for nail files and begin profiling people who might actually cause terror damage.  That is not "racial" profiling, that is "terror" profiling.  Most of the recent terror activities have been perpetuated by young Muslim men.  So it is these people who need greater scrutiny when they check in for a flight.

Al-Jazeera Promotes Global Terrorism.  The U.S. and Israel will not be able to win this global war on terrorism unless the role of Al-Jazeera in radicalizing Arabs and Muslims throughout the world is recognized and addressed.

Al-Jazeera Invades Canada and Threatens America.  The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) has approved a request to add Al-Jazeera English (AJE) to the list of television satellite services for distribution in Canada.  Supporters of the Arab government-funded propaganda channel hope that acceptance in Canada will lead to more cable and satellite carriers in the U.S. picking up the incendiary network.

Another Al-Jazeera Journalist Suspected of Terror Ties.  A journalist for Al-Jazeera has been arrested on suspicion of being an agent of the Palestinian terror group Hamas.  The journalist, Samer Allawi, Al-Jazeera's bureau chief in Afghanistan, is a Palestinian.  He was apprehended by Israeli authorities as he attempted to leave the West Bank.  The detention of Allawi, a major development in the media wars over the future of the Middle East, is not the first time that Israel has detained journalists from the channel.

US cable operator called a 'traitor' for carrying Al Jazeera.  Allan Block was accused of being 'a traitor' for adding Al Jazeera English to the lineup at his cable operation, Buckeye CableSystem, a couple of months ago. … Buckeye's March 19 launch of the controversial news network, sister channel to Arab-language Al Jazeera, prompted some 50 letters.

Mosque building made simple:  Satisfy the local building codes and do not make excessive noise.  Oh, and don't preach anti-Semitic garbage and call for violent world revolution.  Which is where an otherwise anonymous new Muslim temple in Newmarket, Ont., might have got it wrong.  A type of culture clash, by the way, that is being replicated throughout Canada and most of the Western world.

Happy Hajj!  You're Not Invited!  Quite unlike the Jewish and Christian religious celebrations of Hanukkah and Christmas, if you are a non-Muslim, don't plan on investigating the mysteries of Islam by joining your Muslim friends on their trip to Saudi Arabia for the Hajj — you're not invited.

A Laudable Death:  Few men have so richly deserved death as Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.  He met a swifter and cleaner end than what he meted out to Arabs and Americans alike; his violence included torture and beheadings, videotaped not only for purposes of propaganda, but, one suspects, out of a near pornographic pleasure in capturing human suffering on camera.

Time to profile terrorists, not grandmas.  There is one undeniable fact about the 1993 World Trace Center bombers, the Sept. 11 murderers, the Madrid bombers, the London subway bombers and the present liquid bomb plotters — all are clearly identifiable as being from Muslim nations.  We've yet to see bombers who look even remotely like a gray-haired governess from Southampton, a harried middle-aged U.S. sales executive from Los Angeles or a haggard dad and mom with kids in tow returning home to Atlanta.

15 Years@War.  On the morning of February 26, 1993, Islamic militants steered a nondescript Ryder van through the winding darkness of the parking garage under the World Trade Center.  They had spent years planning this moment in secret meetings at mosques and jailhouses, in rural outposts that served as paramilitary camps, and in safehouses where explosive compounds were mixed in makeshift labs.  Loaded into the van's rear compartment was a 1,400-pound chemical bomb.

A post-9/11 vocabulary test:  The indelible sight of workers plunging from the Twin Towers — head first, feet first, solo, hand-in-hand — roused me from slumber.  The photos of children who were incinerated on United Airlines Flight 175 and American Airlines Flight 77 compelled me to start paying attention to the beliefs, goals, language, and lies of those who would gladly kill my children the same way.

Dwelling on the tactic, never defining the enemy.  Discussing the war on "terror" has been endlessly awkward. Terror — like blitzkrieg, sneak attack or even disinformation — is a tactic not an enemy.  But in our politically correct era, we dwell on the tactic, never defining the enemy.  Drop 500-pound bombs on his head if we must — and we must — but don't describe him as an Islamic jihadist in the age-old tradition of Islamic jihadists going back to Muhammad.  Such historical precision might be hurtful and insensitive, and we wouldn't want that.

Muslims face extra checks in new travel crackdown.  The [British] Government is discussing with airport operators plans to introduce a screening system that allows security staff to focus on those passengers who pose the greatest risk.  The passenger-profiling technique involves selecting people who are behaving suspiciously, have an unusual travel pattern or, most controversially, have a certain ethnic or religious background.

Long war ahead.  The western democratic world is so obviously pitted in an all-out defensive position against radical Islamic tyrants aiming to undermine us, it's hard to ponder how any rational individual would ignore the threat.  But some still do.  We're urged to be calm, not to throw stones.  We're even urged to make amends for perceived sins of the past — to confess the crusades were really an assault against Islam, rather than a legitimate defense as extremist Islamic forces were at the very doors of Vienna.  Now they are in our midst.

An unappeasable global jihad.  We are fighting a global war against international terrorists because the terrorists are engaged in a global jihad against infidels.  The scariest thing about it is that a good many people in this country believe we actually have the luxury of opting out. ... Why else would Democratic Congressman Martin Frost tell Fox News — approvingly — that "a majority of the American people has now decided that it was a mistake for us to go into Iraq"?

The Editor says...
Incidentally, Martin Frost is no longer a Congressman.

Multiculturalism Breeds Terrorism.  On June 2, 2006, seventeen Muslims, including five juveniles, were arrested in Canada for planning major terrorist attacks on Canadian soil against innocent people.  Because these were "homegrown" Islamic terrorists, blame was rightly directed towards Canada's decades-old multiculturalism policies, which effectively encourages immigrants to stay frozen in the culture they came from instead of assimilating into Canadian society and Western values.  This allowed preachers of militant Islamism — typically imams funded by Saudi oil money — to brainwash Muslims to hate the West and embrace terrorism.

Multiculturalism is to blame for perverting young Muslims.  Islamic radicalism did not begin with Muslim grievances over Western foreign policy in Iraq or Afghanistan.  It has deep roots, going back to the 13th-century reformer Ibn Taimiyya, through Wahhabism to modern ideologues such as Sayyid Qutb in Egypt or Maududi in Pakistan.

The EU Idiot's Guide to Islamic Extremism:  Whenever Europeans get together to come up with ways to combat extremism and counter terrorism, not only do they find themselves being the ones prescribed with making all the adjustments — as opposed to the terror-prone Muslims — but they usually end up either with suggestions to scrap Holocaust Memorial Day, or with a very limited vocabulary.

And yet the pandering continues . . .
Police to brief Muslims before terror raids.  Police have agreed to consult a panel of Muslim leaders before mounting counter-terrorist raids or arrests.  Members of the panel will offer their assessment of whether information police have on a suspect is too flimsy and will also consider the consequences on community relations of a raid.  Members will be security vetted and will have to promise not to reveal any intelligence they are shown.  They will not have to sign the Official Secrets Act.

Moderate Western Muslims, speak up!  I thought about that following the arrests of 17 Canadian terror suspects last weekend.  Most were citizens of Canada, born and bred, or residents.  The police who announced the dragnet were careful to say that the young males did not represent any specific ethnocultural group — though all are Muslim.

Peace-loving Muslims:  Whether most people of a country are peace-loving or not is not nearly as important as who's calling the shots.  At this particular time, fanatical jihadists are calling the terrorism shots in many Muslim countries.  Their success in committing terrorist acts is in no small part the result of the actions by the millions of peace-loving fellow Muslims.  First, there is not enough condemnation of their terrorist acts by the Muslim community.  More important is the direct or indirect assistance terrorists receive through the silence of their fellow Muslims.

It's time to stop blaming the good guys for problems in Iraq.  Another obscene video from al-Qaida, this time showing the different ways in which abducted Russian diplomatic staff can be put to death.  And, as one could well expect, feeling in Russia runs high.  Against the United States, that is.  A resolution in parliament and statements from Russian officials place the blame on U.S. authorities for not protecting Moscow's envoys.

Death By Remote Control:  Terror suspects held in Canada planned to use remote-controlled toys packed with explosives to target police stations, it is claimed. ... CBC, citing court documents, said the radio-controlled toys would have targeted stations in Toronto.  Meanwhile, it said a 19-year-old suspect had signed up at a Toronto-area college for flight training but withdrew for fear his activities would draw the attention of authorities.

What's this?  Muslims qubbling over ethics?
Leader turned informant rattles Muslims.  The surprise announcement by a prominent Muslim leader here that he was an informant who helped authorities arrest 17 Muslims on terrorism charges has raised questions in the Muslim community over the ethics of informing versus a responsibility to stop violence.

Iran Is at War with Us.  Iran has been at war with us for 27 years, and we have discussed every imaginable subject with them.  We have gained nothing, because there is nothing to be gained by talking with an enemy who thinks he is winning.

The roots of Islamism:  Islamists believe in the re-ordering of society to secure total submission to a narrow, puritan and fundamentalist interpretation of Islam.  They are conducting a civil war within the Islamic world designed to overthrow existing regimes, which they consider to be unforgiveably apostate, and replace them with a single and unified Muslim state, the restored Caliphate.  Islamists believe that the sanctity and culture of Muslim lands are menaced and defiled by Western influences, from capitalism to feminism, which have to be eradicated.

Rethinking the Foundations of Religious Freedom.  In America, the separation of church and state is assumed.  It is assumed because it is a matter of rights — because individuals have the right to religious freedom, church and state must be separated.  Scholars give different accounts of the extent and limits of the right, but they rarely ask why individuals possess it in the first place.  The events of [September 2001], however, suggest that justifying the right to religious freedom remains a foremost task of political theorists.

There are 400 terror suspects on the loose in the UK.  At least 400 Al-Qaeda terrorist suspects — double the previous estimates — are at large in Britain, according to police and MI5.  Dame Eliza Manningham-Buller, director-general of MI5, has said the figure could be as high as 600 if all those thought to have returned from combat training in camps in Pakistan, Afghanistan and elsewhere are included.

Where are the Muslim moderates?  Where are those who oppose terrorism, religious wars, hatred and intolerance?  Where are those who think it crazy to attempt to recreate the 8th century in the 21st century?  Where are those who want not to destroy the Free World but to join it?  They are out there, I suspect; in larger numbers than we might be led to believe.  But if most are silent and fearful of speaking out, can you blame them?

Muslims address silence on Europe attacks.  Europe's Muslims have remained largely silent in the face of terrorist attacks that have killed 254 people in Madrid, London and Amsterdam.  Europeans want to know why.  Why have so few of them publicly condemned the train and bus bombings in Madrid and London?  Why have so few spoken out against the murder of Dutch filmmaker Theo Van Gogh, killed because his work was considered an insult to Islam?

Dutch police encouraged to read Koran.  Police in Amsterdam will get half the purchase price back if they buy the Koran to deepen their knowledge of Islam, a spokesman said today.  A new translation had just appeared in Dutch and officers on the beat were being encouraged to read this and a biography of the Prophet Mohammed, Ebe van der Land said.

The Editor says...
In the U.S., this would be called an "establishment of religion" -- if it was the Bible instead of the Koran.

Civilian Casualty?  It Depends.  The news is filled these days with reports of civilian casualties, comparative civilian body counts and criticism of Israel, along with Hezbollah, for causing the deaths, injuries and "collective punishment" of civilians.  But just who is a "civilian" in the age of terrorism, when militants don't wear uniforms, don't belong to regular armies and easily blend into civilian populations?

Maybe Now We'll Get It.  Maybe, as this terrible business in Lebanon unfolds, we'll finally get it:  Guerrillas like to hide behind civilians.  Muslim guerrillas take it a step further:  "Civilians" are a weapon to them — as much a part of the fight as the AK-47 or RPG they carry.  Those who have visited any Hezbollah installation in Lebanon over the years always remark on the fact that there are families, women and children, in and around the place.

Lebanon Is Not Innocent.  There is no way to fight a war without "collateral damage" to civilians unless the opposing armies agree to meet in a desert and let the superior force prevail.  It certainly cannot be done when the aggressor is a terrorist army that deliberately places its headquarters, its weapons depots, its missile launchers and its staging bases in the middle of large urban centers like Beirut, or in the small villages abutting the border of its victims.

Apocalyptic Muslim Jew-hatred:  There are short-term reasons behind the attacks on Israel by Hezbollah and Hamas.  But underlying all the geo-strategy is a solid foundation of fanatical Jew-hatred, dating back to the founding of Islam.  There is literally nothing Israel or Jews can do to appease those who seek to annihilate them.

Somali radio re-opens without music.  A Somali radio station closed by Islamists for playing local love songs deemed to encourage immorality returned to the airwaves today after pledging to stop broadcasting music.

Suicide bomber kills 59 in Iraq.  A suicide bomber killed 59 people in a crowded Iraqi market on Tuesday [7/18/2006] after luring Shi'ite day labourers aboard his minivan with an offer of casual work.


"Islam says:  Kill in the service of Allah those who may want to kill you!  Does this mean that we should surrender [to the enemy]?  Islam says:  Whatever good there is exists thanks to the sword and in the shadow of the sword!  People cannot be made obedient except with the sword!  The sword is the key to paradise, which can be opened only for holy warriors!   Islam is Not a Religion of Pacifists."

— Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, 1942.   *       


Monitor the mosques.  Mosques across the globe have provided material aid to terrorist groups ranging from al-Qaeda to Islamic Jihad to Hezbollah to Hamas.  Muslim terrorists use mosques as networking sites and often as recruitment centers for future terrorist comrades.  There is no doubt that law enforcement should be heavily scrutinizing the membership and administration of mosques.

It's the Jihad, stupid.  Canadian law enforcement officials should be proud of busting a reputed Islamic terrorist network that may span seven nations.  Instead, our northern neighbors are trying their damnedest to whitewash the jihadi ties that bind the accused plotters and their murder-minded peers around the world.  We live on a doomed continent of ostriches.

Jihadist video aimed at Muslim youth.  The star of the video is Osama bin Laden, who is seen urging Muslims to kill infidels.  "Therefore each individual from amongst the Muslims should come forth to kill the Jews and Americans," bin Laden says, "for killing them is foremost of obligations and the greatest form of worship."

British computer whiz-kid exports terror via internet.  An internet trail left by a British computer expert has led investigators to an intricate terror network spreading from the backstreets of Baghdad through cells of young militants living in European capitals to Islamic extremists plotting car-bomb attacks in North America.  For nine months police and intelligence agents in eight countries have patiently worked through a forest of e-mails and intercepted telephone calls that have so far led to the arrest of up to 30 men.

Beheading in the Name of Islam Online.  Islam Online is a symptom of the much larger problem of Islamic extremism, one that shutting down the site will not solve.  Even so, it will be a wise step in the right direction.

Radical Islam is globalization for losers.  It appeals to those left out of modernization, industrialization and prosperity, particularly to young men desperate for order, meaning and pride amid the chaos of globalization.  Radical Islam provides it, but at a terrible price.

Dubai undertow:  When Islam in its heyday conquered infidel lands, it set in motion a massive transfer of wealth, enacting punitive taxation to transfer money from nonbelievers to Muslims — or from the productive part of the economy to the nonproductive.

The Pentagon Breaks the Islam Taboo.  Washington's policy-makers have been careful in the war on terror to distinguish between Islam and the terrorists.  The distinction has rankled conservatives who see scarce difference.

One Nation Under Allah.  Abu Mohammed pauses and fiddles with his Pepsi before replying.  "And if after all discussions and negotiations they still refuse, then the last resort will be a jihad to spread the spirit of Islam and the rule of Islam," he says, smiling.  "This is done in the interests of all people to get them out of darkness and into light."

U.S., West, Israel all face same threat:  radical Islam.  Without draining the swamp and dismantling not just the terrorist infrastructure, but also the indoctrination industry, there cannot be peace.  Quite simply, Israel cannot share a peace with a neighbor that wants it dead.

Oppression of the Press in the Muslim World:  Reporters Without Borders describes Saudi Arabia in its 2005 annual report as "one the world's 10 harshest countries towards press freedom."

Swedes jailed for taking pictures.  An Iranian court sentenced two Swedish men to three years imprisonment on Tuesday [5/2/2006], after they were found guilty of photographing military installations and telephone pylons.

'A lunatic runs Iran'.  Iran is a nation headed by a president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has no respect for anything except a fanatical devotion to Islam, much the same as Palestine. ... This is a prime example of a terrorist nation, and be assured that Iran, Iraq, Palestine and Libya, to name but a few, are nothing more than that, manufacturing the means to slaughter millions in the name of Allah.

The Adbul Rahman subsection:

Converts From Christianity.  Converts to Islam are taking over the terrorist operations previously carried out mainly by Muslim-born immigrants and their children.  This was dramatically illustrated when a Belgian convert to Islam, Muriel Degauque, 38, blew herself up near Baghdad on Nov. 9 in a suicide attack on U.S. troops, becoming the first Christian-born Western woman to kill herself for Islamist purposes.

Man faces death over Christianity.  A man detained by police for converting from Islam to Christianity could face the death penalty if he refused to become a Muslim again, an Afghani judge said today [3/19/2006].  Islamic sharia law proposes the death sentence for Muslims who abandon the religion.  Afghanistan's new constitution says "no law can be contrary to the sacred religion of Islam".

Afghan Convert to Christianity 'Could Be Mad,' Says Prosecutor:  An appeal from the White House.  Tens of thousands of e-mails urging President Bush to intervene.  International reaction expressing concern for religious freedom.  All of these are in response to the plight of an Afghan man who, because he converted from Islam to Christianity, faces possible execution if found guilty by a court in Kabul.

Muslims mix religion, politics.  That a judge in Afghanistan can even think of sentencing someone to death for switching from the Muslim to the Christian faith speaks volumes about the problems of dealing with Islam.  Except for some Muslims, everyone is aghast at Judge Ansarulla Mawlavezda warning Adbul Rahman that he deserves to be hanged unless he recants his switch to Christianity 16 years ago.

What is 'democracy'?  "If I must die, I will die," Abdul Rahman told a human rights worker. ... Rahman is a man of faith and courage, the stuff of which Christian martyrs have ever been made.  And, thanks to U.S. intervention, he is a free man, though he will live, if he remains in Afghanistan, in constant danger of being assassinated or lynched.

Islamic purity:  The State Department has had a profound question to ask itself in the matter of Abdul Rahman.  Did we intend to make a theatrical point — that we would not stand by in his condemnation and beheading, an arrant interference with the right of a human being to embrace Christianity?  Or would we just settle for saving Rahman's life?

Leaving Islam is not a capital crime.  A Muslim's conversion to Christianity is not a crime punishable by death under Islamic law, contrary to the claims in the case of Abdul Rahman in Afghanistan.  While there is long-established doctrine that apostasy is punishable by death, that has also long been questioned by Islamic criminal justice scholars, including this writer.

The Criminalization of Christianity:  Unfortunately, the widespread persecution of Christians around the world continues unabated and receives almost no attention from the international media.  For instance, over the last several months, nearly 2,000 Christians in one African nation have been rounded up and imprisoned.  Yet these victims of religious persecution have received nowhere near the attention [Abdul] Rahman received.



Celebrate tolerance, or you're dead.  Over in Sweden, they've been investigating the Grand Mosque of Stockholm.  Apparently, it's the one-stop shop for all your jihad needs:  you can buy audio cassettes at the mosque encouraging you to become a martyr and sally forth to kill "the brothers of pigs and apes" — i.e. Jews.

The Swine are Christians and the Apes are Jews.  A recent article in the Washington Post, written by Nina Shea of Freedom House, laid bare Saudi hypocrisy in claiming to have removed hateful material from textbooks, when in fact that material remains in abundance.  This is not just an issue within the Kingdom, for the Saudis export such material in large quantities to Muslims in other countries.

Terrorists Killed More Than 14,500 People in 2005, Report Says.  Fifty-six of those killed were Americans, the [annual U.S. State Department] report said.  Three thousand of the deaths were attributable to 360 suicide bombings.  There were 25,000 people wounded and 35,000 people kidnapped, the report said.

Once again, for Muslims, it's 'us versus us'.  Look no further than the triple bombing this week at the Sinai resort of Dahab, where most of those killed and wounded were Egyptians, to fully appreciate the lie behind Osama bin Laden's latest message that the West is on a crusade against Islam.  If anyone is on a crusade against Muslims it is Al Qaeda itself.

Turning off terrorist television:  A battle was won last week when the U.S. Treasury Department designated Hezbollah's al Manar satellite television operation as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist organization.

Taliban Terrorists Targeting Afghan Schools, Especially Where Girls Are Allowed to Study.  For 14-year-old Mohammed Salam, his tent school was about all this mud-brick farming village had going for it.  That was until suspected Taliban terrorists burned it to the ground. ... "They (the Taliban) want us illiterate so we have nothing else to do but pick up a gun," Mohammed said Monday [7/10/2006].

Graphic evidence of the evil America faces:  As horrible as the image of the recent video must be, I couldn't help but think that maybe some of those who have forgotten, or who never fully recognized the extent of evil we face, should see it.  Could anyone watch such a thing and remain complacent about the threat of terrorism?

It's time India got angry and stopped all this "bouncing back" nonsense.  A backlash against the authorities is taking hold in Bombay, five days after the bombings that killed 181 commuters and injured almost 900.  There is a sense of anger and betrayal among those living in India's commercial capital that the state has failed to protect them from yet another terrorist attack.

Democracy and Islamic Law Don't Mix, Iraqi Official Says.  Despite President Bush's insistence that the Iraqi "people want there to be a democracy," a pro-American member of Iraq's new parliament claims there is "no relationship between Islam and democracy."

The Islamist Challenge to the U.S. Constitution:  First in Europe and now in the United States, Muslim groups have petitioned to establish enclaves in which they can uphold and enforce greater compliance to Islamic law.  While the U.S. Constitution enshrines the right to religious freedom and the prohibition against a state religion, when it comes to the rights of religious enclaves to impose communal rules, the dividing line is more nebulous.  Can U.S. enclaves, homeowner associations, and other groups enforce Islamic law?

Terrorist 007, Exposed.  For almost two years, intelligence services around the world tried to uncover the identity of an Internet hacker who had become a key conduit for al-Qaeda.  The savvy, English-speaking, presumably young webmaster taunted his pursuers, calling himself Irhabi — Terrorist — 007.  He hacked into American university computers, propagandized for the Iraq insurgents led by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and taught other online jihadists how to wield their computers for the cause.

Osama Lackey a Psycho-PATH.  The mastermind of the plot to blow up the PATH tunnels under the Hudson River confessed he was following "a religious order" from Osama bin Laden, officials revealed yesterday [7/7/2006].  "I am proud to carry out his orders," Assem Hammoud told investigators, according to officials in Lebanon, where he was captured.

Al-Qaeda calls the Queen an "enemy of Islam".  Al-Qaeda has threatened the Queen by naming her as "one of the severest enemies of Islam" in a video message to justify the July bombings in London.

Al-Qaeda is on the defensive as bombs begin to backfire.  After years of al-Qaeda terror attacks in which thousands have been killed, many of them Muslims — the people they wish to recruit — voices of dissent are starting to be heard in the Middle East.

If the Problem Is Muslim Terror, Then What?  Since September 11, the list of those arrested, and in a growing number of cases convicted, for Islamist terrorist activities in the U.S. has gotten longer and longer.

From Hitler to Hamas:  Like Hitler and those who followed him, Hamas thrives on humiliation and blames others for its failures.  Hamas understands that Muslims in the rest of the world have done almost nothing to alleviate their situation, but they blame the Jews, anyway.  They keep it simple.

Point of no return:  Terrorists and terrorist governments are giving us almost daily evidence of their fanatical hatred and violent sadism, as the clock ticks away toward their gaining possession of nuclear weapons.  They not only hold a harmless young woman hostage in Iraq, they parade her in tears on television, just as they have paraded not only the terrorizing, but even the beheading, of others on television.

What Hamas teaches us about Islam, Iraq, and democracy:  This week, the terrorist group Hamas won an overwhelming electoral victory in the Palestinian Arab parliament election.  Hamas, an organization that pledges to seek the destruction of the State of Israel, now holds 76 out of 132 seats in the relatively powerless legislative body.

Reading up on Islam.  Some scholars now ask tough questions about the Quran's historicity.  As I type with one hand, I'm holding in the other John Wainsbrough's "Quranic Studies" (2004) and Ibn Warraq's "The Origins of the Koran" (1998).  Warraq left Islam after coming to believe the Muhammad story was a sham, and his books include "Why I Am Not a Muslim" (1995), "The Quest for the Historical Muhammad" (2000) and "Leaving Islam:  Apostates Speak Out" (2003).

Muslims Think Beheadings are Bad For Their Image.  Ayman al-Zawahiri's is concerned that beheadings are bad for Muslim PR.  "Among the things which the feelings of the Muslim populace who love and support you will never find palatable ... are the scenes of slaughtering the hostages."  He goes on to say that it is OK to shoot hostages.  He just objects to videotaping screaming hostages as their heads are sawn off their bodies.

Fine words cannot disguise it:  the clash of civilizations is real.  Islamist terrorism is not a phantom product of our nightmares and neuroses, but a real and present danger in the world.

The Ambiguous Islamist Angle:  In the aftermath of the United Nations report on the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, much attention has been focused on how to hold Syria to account. ... However, there is a narrower aspect to the report that has gone largely unmentioned, but that shows how Syria's Baath regime has managed to both peddle a secular image while also maintaining ambiguous ties to Islamist groups.

Never think it couldn't happen here.  The biggest globalisation success story of recent years is not McDonald's or Disney, but Islamism. ... What's the bigger threat?  A globalisation that exports c heeseburgers and pop songs or a globalisation that exports the fiercest and unhealthiest aspects of its culture?

Londonistan:  Great Britain is struggling to come to grips with the meaning of those attacks, as they were launched not by foreigners but by entirely homegrown jihadists.  They were educated, British-born, middle class Muslims, not poor and ignorant recruits from the Middle East.

Enough Is Enough.  Civilization has only two choices.  It can continue appeasing these murderers, looking in vain for "root causes" of the mayhem. ... Or the United States and its allies can deny suspect Middle Eastern males entry into the West while distancing themselves from all Middle East dictatorships, which neither punish nor even shame thousands of their citizens whose money and psychological support fuel murderers across the globe.

Review of Robert Spencer's new book, "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam".  Islam's only overarching moral principle is "if it is good for Islam, it's right."  Spencer does not flinch from pointing out that "Islam allows for lying, as well as stealing and killing in certain circumstances," and that "This leads to large-scale deception campaigns today."  You won't hear that from the peddlers of political correctness.

Visa And A Prayer.  A bruised and betrayed Britain vows to kick out foreign Muslim clerics who inspire violence and hatred while blocking entry of radical imams.  But America keeps ushering them in — by the hundreds.  Are we really that stupid?  Yes.  Since 9-11, the multiculturalists at the State Department have admitted more than 1,000 religious workers from Muslim nations, including terror hotbeds like Pakistan.  In fact, they've granted religious-worker visas to 113 imams from that country alone, immigration records show.

One common enemy:  Radical Islam.  In the decade before 9/11, many U.S. targets were hit:  the World Trade Center in 1993, Khobar Towers in 1996, the East Africa embassies in 1998, and the U.S.S. Cole in 2000.  Each time, we did nothing.  Yet al Qaeda struck anyway on September 11.  There is a "reason" why four young British men took their own lives in order to murder more than 50.  But it's not Iraq.  It's not Afghanistan.  It's not Israel.  It's radical Islam.

Arab States Silent on Iran's Remarks.  Arab governments remained silent Thursday [10/27/2005] as international condemnation grew over a call by Iran's new president for Israel to be destroyed.

Improving our odds against terror:  Six percent of British Muslims — more than 100,000 citizens — thought the July 7 London terror attacks were justified.  A quarter of British Muslims merely sympathize with the bombers.  Even more shocking, nearly one-fifth of British Muslims say they feel little or no loyalty to Britain.

Killed for breaking fast.  A 14 year old Iranian boy was sentenced to 85 lashes for breaking his Ramadan fast.  The boy died from his wounds.  Keep this story in mind next time you hear a liberal referring to the "Taliban wing" of the Republican party, or arguing that Christian "fundamentalists" in America are comparable to Islamic "fundamentalists" in the Middle East, or suggesting that the Bush administration is trying to establish a "theocracy."

Where wife-beating is up for debate.  Is it possible half the world's Arab population has no rights?

They shoot children, don't they?  Having targeted little children for death, there is no atrocity, no barbarity, no act of evil that the human race cannot imagine fanatical Muslims committing.  [For example] the slaughtering of innocent human beings as if they were animals while chanting Muslim prayers.  The reintroduction of black slavery and genocide against blacks.  The idolization of young men who blow themselves up while murdering and maiming innocent non-Muslims — and the theology of sexual rewards in heaven for doing so.  These are some of the atrocities being committed by Muslims in different parts of the world today.

[What about flying hijacked passenger jets into office buildings?]

Saudis Do Destroy Bibles, Think Tank Affirms.  A U.S.-based think tank critical of the Saudi government has added its voice to allegations that authorities in the kingdom routinely destroy Bibles.  "As a matter of official policy, the government either incinerates or dumps Bibles, crosses and other Christian paraphernalia," the Saudi Institute said in an article posted on its website.

Unilateral self-flagellation:  Upon arrival at Camp Delta [Guantanamo Bay], detainees are issued a blanket, a sheet, two orange jump suits, flip-flops, a foam sleeping pad, two bath towels, a washcloth, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, a prayer rug and a Koran.  They are allowed two 15-minute showers per week; they get recreation time and three culturally sensitive meals per day.  Schedules are respectful of Islamic traditions, prayer calls are broadcast five times a day, and arrows painted on the floors point to Mecca.  Their regular quarters include a flushing toilet, running water and an off-the-floor bed.  Detainees who ask for them are provided with soccer balls, playing cards, chessboards and paperback books.  All of this courtesy of the American taxpayers the detainees have sworn to kill.

Suicide out of spite:  On September 11, 2001, 19 Muslim fundamentalists committed suicide in an act of war against the US.  Last week three of their comrades-in-arms did the same thing.  Fortunately, unlike the 19, the three were in no position to murder anyone in the course of taking their own lives.  Unfortunately, this has led some elite opinion-makers to sympathise with the enemy, which was precisely the enemy's goal.

Enemies, foreign and domestic:  The fact that native-born Muslim Europeans are committing terror acts within their own countries shows that this Islamist malignancy long predates Iraq, long predates Afghanistan and long predates 9/11.  What Europe had incubated is an enemy within, a threat that for decades Europe simply refused to face.

Cultures aren't equal.  Anyone who has been keeping up with British opinion since the July 7 bombings will have noticed that "multiculturalism" is under sharp attack.  Multiculturalism preaches that we should allow and encourage immigrants and their children to maintain and celebrate their own culture apart from the national culture.  Society should be not a melting pot but, in the phrase of former New York Mayor David Dinkins, "a gorgeous mosaic."  That mosaic, of course, looks less gorgeous as people surveyed the work of the British-born-and-raised bombers.

The Face of Islamic Religious Intolerance.  Today, as I knew they would, crazed Palestinian mobs are desecrating 25 synagogues in Gaza, setting them on fire and destroying what it took years to build. ... Unspoken is the silent message that while the Christian world and the Jewish world would respect places of worship, the Moslem world cannot be held to the same level of accountability.

Many faces of Islamism.  Islam is the second-largest and the fastest-growing religion in the world.  In its heartlands in Asia and Africa, the movement of Islamisation has penetrated the fortress of the modernised elites, taking root among students, engineers, doctors and lawyers.

What have we paid for with Palestinian handouts?  What was Condoleezza Rice's word for the lawless Palestinian stampede of looting and desecration that erupted after the Israeli withdrawal?  "Successful."

Don't Apologize, Governor Romney!  Radical mosques are the spark lighting the fuse that can kill Americans.  That has killed Americans.  That will kill more if we let it.  Such killing sprees, moreover, are plotted by young, male, Muslim militants who often enter to the United States on student and other visas from places known to sponsor or export terrorism.

Our enemies are stupid.  People who can use a word like "blessed" to describe men, women, and children being blown to pieces or having their eyes gouged out by flying glass or losing limbs are not just barbarous, they are twisted.  Theirs is a perversion of mind and spirit that almost defies imagination.  But thankfully, they are also not very smart.

Burnt offerings on the altar of multiculturalism:  Even as we devise new ways to see inside ourselves to our most elemental components, we also prevent ourselves from looking full-face at the danger to our way of life posed by Islam.

Muslim rage burns in our backyard:  Trying to erase the long-established culture of Australia, permanently rooted as it is in the Judeo-Christian tradition, and replacing it with vapid, secularist nothingness is not going to help.  It simply creates a vacuum for radical Islam to rush in and fill.  And it is doing its best.

Jihadists-R-Us:  As much as we'd like to think militant Muslims will just go away, or that we can change them through appeasement, or calm them down via our slick, politically correct verbal gymnastics, the reality is that the only thing that is going to stop militant Muslims is death. ... It is either us or them.  I say let's make it them ... on our terms and on their turf.

Could the same thing happen here?  As details emerge about the terrorists who struck London's mass transit system last week, many people are questioning how four young men who had lived in Great Britain all or most of their lives could turn into fanatics capable of killing their fellow Britons for the cause of radical Islam.

The Editor says...
I'll answer that.  It is because many islamists have no conscience, which in turn is because followers of Islam depend upon harsh external controls (to behave themselves) rather than self control.  Christians and Jews don't steal because stealing is wrong.  Islamists don't steal because they don't want to get their hands chopped off.

What do the terrorists want?  Islamic fascists demand that "infidels" leave "Muslim lands."  But define "Muslim lands."  Arabs, after all, dominated Europe from the 8th-century AD until 1492 AD, occupying lands as far west as Spain and modern-day France.

The Muslim groups who wouldn't attend the March Against Terror:  In the first of its kind for an event organized by a major national Muslim organization, Kamal Nawash and the Free Muslims Coalition recently held the Free Muslims March Against Terrorism.  Not surprisingly, the leaders of every other major Muslim organization shunned the march and declined to take a public stand against terrorism and extremism.

Welcome to the war on image.  In a recent meeting with Daniel Sutherland, head of the Civil Rights and Civil Liberties division of the Department of Homeland Security, American University's Akbar Ahmed had some suggestions, beginning, according to an online report in the Pakistani Daily Times, with pretty much eliminating Muslim profiling at airports. ... "You simply cannot humiliate Muslims like this," Akbar said, describing a "peak level of anger" in "the young generation on the edge."  Just one more pat-down and they'll blow.

"Real men moisturize".  In Iran, as Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzi reports in Front Page Magazine, women continue to be stoned to death for the crime of adultery.  Accompanying this story is a photo (smuggled out of Iran) of a weeping woman being buried up to her waist in preparation for stoning to death. ... Other punishments meted out by the Islamic Republic include cutting off hands, arms and legs, and plucking out the eyes.

Islam and Democracy:  You would have to have a heart of stone not to be moved and inspired by the sight of Iraqis flocking to the polls on Sunday, defying suicide bombers and threats to their lives as well as those of their children.  Even the hardened skeptics in the American media found themselves carried away by the courage of the Iraqi people.

Terrorism's victims:  Actually, they're mostly Muslims.  It is a common misperception that most terrorism is directed against Jews and Christians.  The fact is no group has suffered more than Muslims from radical Islamist violence.  Especially at risk are those bold enough to speak out for such values as freedom, human rights and democracy.

The Triumph of the East:  Islam really does want to conquer the world.  That's because Muslims, unlike many Christians, actually believe they are right, and that their religion is the path to salvation for all.

Islam and the Institutions of a Free Society:  Are Islamic values compatible with a free society?  What are the prospects for liberty in predominantly Muslim countries?

Saudi Arabia's religious hatred:  For years, the Saudi regime was exempt from harsh criticism in official US circles — an immunity bought with the hundreds of millions of dollars Riyadh lavished on US policymakers, ambassadors, and lobbyists.  But that changed after 9/11, when a group of mostly Saudi terrorists sent thousands of innocent victims to their deaths.

Where is the Muslim outrage?  They are still burying the victims of the latest atrocity committed by evildoers professing Islam — the slaughter of hundreds of children, teachers, and parents in an elementary school in Beslan, Russia.  And from Muslims the world over, as usual, has come mostly silence.


"Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant.  The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth."

— Omar Ahmad,      
Co-founder of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).*       


Muslims and the tsunami:  Indonesia can now assume first place in the pantheon of ingrates.  The world's most populous Muslim nation, horribly battered by the tsunami, announced that it wished to see American and other foreign troops who are providing disaster relief out by March 31.  "The sooner the better," said Vice President Yusuf Kalla.

Murder tool's extended blade:  "Reactionary" is a much more apt description for these thugs than "insurgent."  Words matter, and insistently describing the murderers in Iraq as insurgents distorts the aims and true nature of these enemies.  Saddam's old cronies and Abu Musab Zarqawi's suicide bombers don't hold elections, they don't dig sewers, and they don't build hospitals.

Islamic leader hails Chechen attack.  A UK-based Islamic extremist movement said that last week's abduction of Russian children by Chechen terrorists should be repeated in Britain.

Teaching Morality:  Whether or not we agree with President Bush on how to confront these nations and those who harbor or support terrorists, we should all be able to do one thing:  call evil by its name.

American Muslim Council Founder Heads to Jail.  Individual Islamists may appear law-abiding and reasonable, but they are part of a totalitarian movement, and as such, all must be considered potential killers.

Parts of Detroit seem Middle Eastern.  The Dearborn area has the largest concentration of Arabic people outside of the Middle East.  Some say they came as a result of Henry Ford's infatuation with their culture.  Ford offered them jobs and places to stay on the condition that they would teach him the ways of Islam.

The militant Islamic ducks are quacking.  Itar-Tass reports that 10 hostage terrorists were Arabs, at least one from Africa, some were Saudi and all linked to al–Qaida.  Sounds pretty clear to me.  So why do so many in our media persist in calling the killers "rebels" or "insurgents."  They've no guts to call them what they are:  militant Islamic terrorists, our enemy in the war on terrorism.

Alleged Hamas figure arrested by Maryland police:  A man described in a federal indictment as a "high-ranking" Hamas operative was arrested in Maryland on Friday [8/20/2004] videotaping the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.  Ismael Selim Elbarasse of Annandale, Va., long suspected by authorities of having financial ties to the Palestinian terrorist group, was taken into custody as a "material witness" in a Chicago terrorism case, according to Maryland's U.S. attorney's office.

Defending against Muslim aggression in Africa.  Will Sudan finally have peace?  Any truce is likely to be short-lived as long as radical Muslims continue their attempt to force non-Muslims into submission.

Islamist women use Web for war with infidels.  An Islamist women's group has begun an Internet magazine aimed at recruiting Arab women to fight holy wars against non-Muslims.

Will the West survive?  My colleague Dr. Thomas Sowell observes, "Those in the Islamic world have for centuries been taught to regard themselves as far superior to the 'infidels' of the West, while everything they see with their own eyes now tells them otherwise."  He adds, "Nowhere have whole peoples seen their situation reversed more visibly or more painfully than the peoples of the Islamic world."

Just what we need...
US Offers Citizenship To 7000 Ahiska Muslims.  The United States has agreed to grant citizenship to 7,000 Ahiska Muslims who will be settled in Pennsylvania, according to a Russian newspaper, Novie Izvestia.  It added that the Muslims would be housed near the grand mosque in Philadelphia.

Muslim Prayer Calls Echo Through Detroit Suburb; Petitioners Unhappy.  Some residents of a Detroit-area town hope that an August ballot initiative will send a strong message to the Muslim community that they do not want to hear Islamic calls for prayer broadcast five times a day over loudspeakers.  In the meantime, citizens will have to call the police if they don't like the noise.

Albany Mosque Raid Uncovers Missile Plot.  Two leaders of a mosque in Albany, N.Y., were arrested on charges stemming from an alleged plot to help a man they thought was a terrorist purchase a shoulder-fired missile, federal authorities said Thursday [8/5/2004].  The men have ties to a group called Ansar al-Islam, which has been linked to the al-Qaida terror network, according to two federal law enforcement authorities speaking on condition of anonymity.

Police Clash with Wife-Swappers in Lagos.  Two policemen were shot and two more stabbed during a raid on an Islamic sect engaged in wife-swapping in the northern Nigerian state of Kebbi.  Sect members armed with guns, daggers and bows and arrows attacked police and government workers who were sent to destroy the group's base in the state capital Birnin-Kebbi.

Can Jihadis be Assimilated?  Nothing has made Europeans wake up to what they have allowed mass immigration to do to them than the jihad many Muslims are licking their whiskers to wage against the new countries to which they have invited themselves.

Islam and Slavery:  The Concealed Truth.  To this day the only places in the world where one can buy a slave for ready cash are Moslem countries.  The slaves in question are almost invariably black, and the countries in question are primarily Mauritania and Sudan.

Christian slavery = bad.  Islamic slavery = empowering!  This just in from former Canadian Islamic Congress chief Mohamed Elmasry:  Islamic slavery wasn't all that bad.  Writing in The Canadian Charger — a newly formed internet-based grab bag of anti-Western articles published by hard left Canadian activists — Elmasry works hard to distinguish the evils of Christian slavery from the purportedly enlightened race-mixing that resulted from its Islamic equivalent.

Islam's Image Problem:  Ibrahim Hooper (spokesman for The Council on American-Islamic Relations) declares, "I wouldn't want to create the impression that I wouldn't like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future."

Will you wake up to an Islamic prayer call?  A holy war of sorts is heating up in a Detroit suburb, where members of the local Muslim community want loudspeakers on mosques to announce the Islamic call to prayer five times each day.

Punishment includes Islam indoctrination:  An Ontario man convicted of promoting hatred against Muslims says his community-service sentence has included indoctrination into Islam.

How al-Qaeda May End:  Most terrorist groups do eventually come to an end.  Glossaries and indices on terrorism from the 1970s and 1980s yield examples of dozens of once-promising groups that currently have no power and make no news.

Telling Friend From Foe:  Ferreting out Militant Islam.  If militant Islam is the problem and moderate Islam is the solution, as I often argue, how does one differentiate between these two forms of Islam?  It's a tough question, especially as concerns Muslims who live in Western countries.

Not Living in Terror in the Face of Terrorism:  The terrorists would love nothing more than to keep us trembling before their heavily bearded, wild-eyed, non-prophetic, violent maledictions.  They would love to upset our lifestyle and freedoms and have us paralyzed into passivity while waiting for Al Qaeda's next move.

What does "jihad" Really Mean?  Free Congress Foundation analyst Robert Spencer says [there is a] need to recognize the threat posed by the idea behind the term "jihad."  "While it is [defined as] a spiritual struggle, and it is a defensive struggle," Spencer says, "it is also an offensive struggle to establish Islamic supremacy in the world."  Spencer says there are Muslims who believe this and take it seriously enough and are acting upon it.

CASMAS - The Coalition Against Slavery in Mauritania and Sudan.  Muslims are enslaving Black Christians and other non-Muslims in the Sudan and Mauritania.

Islamists leave "killing field" of civilians:  Team finds remains of unarmed villagers in southern Sudan.

Reports of Moderate Islam's Existence Have Been Greatly Exaggerated:  To his credit the president has not shied away from using the "E" word - "evil."  However, he has refused to apply it to any sect of organized Islam or its leadership - men and women not evil because their beliefs are different from the Judeo-Christian traditions of the West, but evil because they promote terrorism.

Piping The Wrong Tune:  Islam divides the world into two parts, the Dar al Islam, the world of Islam, and the Dar al Harb, the world of war.

A Look at Islam:  President Bush, while he has provided generally good leadership and clearly enjoys the overwhelming support of the American people, persists in mischaracterizing the interior motivation of the enemy.  This is not wise, if only because the first rule of warfare is to know your enemy.

Islam on the Defensive:  Al Qaeda is the largest Non Governmental Organization (NGO) in the world:  its recruiters are largely in London, its recruits in Western Europe and Saudi Arabia, its leaders in Pakistan, its dead ideologues were in Egypt, its actions everywhere, from Bali to Lackawana and from Morocco to Yemen.  So then, where do we start in dealing with it?

Radical Islam's Assault on Human Life:  Anti-reason, anti-freedom ideas in Islam encourage terrorist fanaticism.

Islam's New Strongholds:  The recent bombing of a nightclub in Bali, Indonesia, killing at least 183 and injuring hundreds, fits into a larger pattern.  Militant Islam used to be mostly confined to Middle Easterners, but in recent years it has spread to Muslims in other parts of the world.  This can be seen especially in the cases of Indonesia, Bangladesh and Nigeria.

It's Still Evil:  Terrorism comes out of malevolence.  It is a political program by which a minority seeks to obtain and maintain power by destroying those aspects of life that are essential to human flourishing.  The terrorist directly targets family, home, work, friendship, leisure, stability, worship, mobility, and freedom.  He seeks to exterminate those parts of human existence that make life worth living.  Terrorism can only truly be understood as an evil directed against the human spirit.  It is a spiritual, not a psychological, malady.  It is evil in its essence.  It is a sin, perhaps the deepest sin of all.

Protect America:  Stop marrying terrorists!  My fellow American women, it's time to stop being so stupid, selfish and naive.  Stay away from young, single Jihadists with wads of cash and bomb-building manuals in their bedrooms.  We are at war, ladies.  Put your self-respect -- and your country -- first.  When you sleep with the enemy, you endanger us all.

The U.S. Is Blessed To Ponder Terror at Leisure:  Have we forgotten they're trying to kill us?

Gaza's preschool of hate:  An Islamist school in the Palestinian Authority territory of Gaza teaches children as young as five the techniques of urban guerrilla warfare, jihad against Jewish settlers and martyrdom missions to kill Zionists.

Is an American ISP Hosting a Terrorist Web Site?  The funds this outfit's looking for aren't to provide a warm safe place to stay and hot, nourishing meals for homeless women and families.  No, the thrust of this horrifying story was that the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, a prime perpetrator of the suicide bombings against Israel, is appealing for funds on its web site to buy weapons and explosives for attacks.

Philippine Terrorists Taunt US, Threaten To Kill American Missionaries:  Muslim extremists holding an American missionary couple hostage in the southern Philippines have thrown down the gauntlet to the joint U.S.-Filipino forces hunting them, mocking them as "useless" yet warning that should they get the upper hand, the hostages will be killed.

15 girls die as zealots "drive them into blaze":  Saudi Arabia's religious police are reported to have forced schoolgirls back into a blazing building because they were not wearing Islamic headscarves and black robes.  Saudi newspapers said scuffles broke out between firemen and members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice who tried to keep the girls inside a burning school in Mecca.

H. Rap Brown Gets Life:  The former 1960s leftist who now calls himself Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, was sentenced Wednesday [3/13/2002] to life in prison without parole for the killing of a deputy sheriff.  The jury that convicted the robed Muslim cleric of 13 counts, including murder, deliberated about five hours before reaching its decision.

India tense as mob torches Hindu train, killing 57:  The victims included 15 children, 25 women, and 17 men, according to Raju Bhargava, the local police chief.  Asked if Muslims were responsible, he said:  "It appears so."

Does Poverty Cause Militant Islam?  Militant Islam (or Islamism) is not a response to poverty or impoverishment; not only are Bangladesh and Iraq not hotbeds of militant Islam, but militant Islam has often surged in countries experiencing rapid economic growth.

Poverty Canard.  Hillary Clinton, in extolling the role of development aid, repeats the old saw about poverty breeding terrorism.  Nonsense.  The new attacks haven't been about living standards.

Poverty Does Not Cause Terrorism.  The canard that poverty causes terrorism just won't die.  It was one thing when Nation writer David Corn and others connected the two back in 2002.  The liberal default position is that poverty causes crime.  It was an instant knee-jerk reaction after 9/11.  But by now we all ought to know better.  Except, the theory is still being peddled despite the lack of evidence to support it.

Beating the Dead Terrorist Horse.  September 11 taught us that a Mohammed Atta or a Khalid Sheikh Mohammed does not commit mass murder out of hunger, want, illiteracy, or Western oppression. ... The wealthier, better educated, and more Westernized the radical Muslim, often the greater the sense of shame, alienation, and anger that he and his religion are not shown proper deference.

The Rise of the Ignoramus Jihadist.  It is still widely believed in leftist circles that the generic Islamic terrorist is the product of ignorance and poverty. ... But even liberals are coming around to the view that many acts of terror are being planned and carried out by "educated" members of the Islamic middle class, not a few of whom have come from affluent and privileged backgrounds.

A New "History" Book in the Spirit of Multiculturalism:  Could it be that an important textbook is proselytizing American 12-year-olds to convert to Islam?

Arabs Still Wish to Destroy Israel?  Osama bin Laden years ago declared a jihad against all Christians and Jews while his friend Mullah Omar, the Taliban dictator, talked publicly about "the destruction of America," which he hoped would happen "within a short period of time."  That militant Islamic leaders wish the same for Israel should hardly be news.  The most powerful of them all, Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, recently called for "this cancerous tumor of a state be removed from the region."

Bush's terrorist buddy:  Arab- and Muslim-American leaders have engaged in a united public relations campaign against terrorism.  And while most Arab- and Muslim-Americans are innocent and law-abiding, it's a campaign that rings hollow, given the terrorists they have openly supported.

Islamic Nations Slaughter, Enslave Christians:  There is not one Christian nation on earth where Muslims are persecuted.  Yet in 83% of nations where the majority of the population are Muslims, there is systematic government persecution of Christians.

Christianity Under Siege, Part II:  Those Who Are Voiceless:  We hear daily messages, TV ads as well as speeches by our president, that we should be tolerant of Islam.  However, there are no calls for Islam to be tolerant of Christianity.

"We will replace the Bible with the Koran in Britain"  "The British Government has to be stopped," said Islamist Sheikh Omar Bakri Mohamed.  "Blair knows that he is wrong.  And he will pay for it.  We will remodel this country in an Islamic image."  Waiting until his followers stopped giggling at the vision of an Islamic state of Great Britain, Bakri continued:  "We will replace the Bible with the Koran."

With Friends Like the Saudis...  Is Saudi Arabia with us in the war on terror, or is it fundamentally against us?

Muslims pray for American defeat:  Worshippers from Saudi Arabia to Jordan prayed Friday for America's demise and Osama bin Laden's safety and victory on the first day of Ramadan, the holy Muslim month of fasting.

Diversity:  A Threat to National Security.  Jared Taylor, author and editor of American Renaissance newsletter, says the emphasis on diversity in America has weakened our national security and threatens our survival.  He says countries or regions with diversity along tribal, religious or ethnic lines usually explode into violence.  For 153 years of our existence as a nation, there wasn't a single mosque in America.  The first one was built in 1929.  Today, there are about seven million Muslims in the U.S. and thousands of mosques.  Taylor says this hasn't strengthened us at all.  He warns that Islam isn't just a religious view but a way to organize society.

Christians terrorized in Muslim Indonesia:  Islamic militants praising bin Laden promise believers "bloody December".

Muslim guerrillas seize Christians for human shield:  Muslim guerrillas shouting "God is Great" paraded about 70 mainly Christian hostages through the Philippine port of Zamboanga yesterday as separatists stepped up their rebellion against the government, whose troops are backed by America.

Bush marks end of Ramadan:  With the United States on alert against possible attacks coinciding with the end of Ramadan, President Bush held a ceremony at the White House with Muslims to mark the end of their holy month.

Does Welfare Cause Terrorism?  Many terrorists take advantage of Western welfare states, the same way they take advantage of Western freedoms and Western technology.  Extreme anti-social terrorist ideologies (radical Islam, in particular) seem to breed in "oppositional" cultures supported by various government welfare benefits.

The first lady is wrong:  It wasn't terrorism that oppressed women in Afghanistan.  It was Islamism.  In Saudi Arabia, women are oppressed every bit as much as they were in Afghanistan.  They can't even drive cars.  Now, we've been told over and over again by the Bush administration that we are not at war with Islam.  We've been told ad nauseum what a wonderful religion it is.  President Bush even invited 50 Islamic ambassadors to the White House this week for Ramadan prayers.

Airport-security firm at mercy of Muslims:  EEOC case forced company to rehire Arabs, instate Islamic-sensitivity training program.

Seven Million American Muslims?  Islamic activist groups claim there are millions of Muslims in America. Unbiased demographers say otherwise.

E-mails from a Traitor:  The young John Walker left an enormous cache of nutty e-mails.  Read them here.

Evangelist Graham in Presidential Hot Water Over Comments:  In what is believed to be a first in American history, there were prayers to Allah last night at the White House where President Bush hosted a formal Ramadan celebration with dozens of Muslim leaders.  The Ramadan event was another effort by the Bush Administration to prove its war on terrorism is not a war against Islam.  However, conservative voices like Gary Bauer have been sharply critical of that effort.

Muslim Group Seeks to Meet Billy Graham's Son:  According to a transcript of an interview, Mr. Graham said Islam had attacked the United States on Sept. 11.  He said that Muslims worshiped a different God than Christians and that he believed Islam to be "a very evil and wicked religion."

The Danger Within:  Militant Islam in America:  The Muslim population in this country is not like any other group, for it includes within it a substantial body of people — many times more numerous than the agents of Osama bin Ladin — who share with the suicide hijackers a hatred of the United States and the desire, ultimately, to transform it into a nation living under the strictures of militant Islam.

More Muslim Enemies from Within:  If this event had been an anti-Muslim rally, the story would be front-page news.  Editorialists and academics would be decrying racial and religious intolerance.  Left-wing celebrities and MTV veejays would be hectoring us about the need for unity and harmony.  But it was an anti-American rally.

Islamists — not who they say they are:  Those Moslems variously known as fundamentalists or Islamists often appear to outsiders to be the most authentic adherents of their faith.  They refer constantly to God and conspicuously pray in public.  Men sport full beards and women wear veils.  They urge Moslem solidarity and demonstrate a suspicion of non-Moslems.  A closer look, however, finds that Islamists are hardly model Moslems.

Syrians flood flight schools:  14 enter at Dallas/Fort Worth; INS gives passport info to FBI.

Bush's scary friends:  President Bush has invited representatives of the most radical, pro-terrorist Islamic groups in America to pray with him at the National Cathedral, to pray with him at the Washington, D.C., mosque, to sit near Mrs. Bush at the big speech to Congress and to hold hands with him at the White House.

An Empire of Ideals:  Everyone has finally awakened to the deadly threat posed by terrorism, and some are even willing to admit that the source of this threat is Islamic fundamentalism.  But almost no one is prepared to name the long-term answer to that threat.  The long-term answer — the only means by which we can eventually secure world peace — is "Cultural imperialism."

The Education of a Holy Warrior:  In a Pakistani religious school called the Haqqania madrasa, Osama bin Laden is a hero, the Taliban's leaders are famous alums and the next generation of mujahedeen is being militantly groomed.

U.S. equipped terror sponsors:  Clinton exported NSA-ducking phone, high-tech encryption devices to Syria.  The dozen or so Islamic terrorists who pulled off the plot to strike at America's nerve centers in New York and Washington spent months, if not years, researching, planning and coordinating the surprise attacks, U.S. security officials say.  And they did it completely in secret, using the world's most sophisticated telecommunications equipment, some secured by advanced encryption technology that most armies don't have.  [Thanks a lot, Bill.]

It's okay to Be Judgmental and Intolerant of the World's Evil Forces.

Profiling Needed:  Most security resources should be spent scrutinizing Caucasian males, particularly those with a Middle Eastern appearance.

How many more al-Qaida moles?  Smuggling of terrorists into U.S. could be widespread.

Muslim Group Seeks to Meet Billy Graham's Son:  According to a transcript of an interview, Mr. Graham said Islam had attacked the United States on Sept. 11.  He said that Muslims worshiped a different God than Christians and that he believed Islam to be "a very evil and wicked religion."

Mystery surrounds immigrants detained in Texas:  A day after the Sept. 11 terror attacks, Mohammed Jaweed Azmath and Ayub Ali Khan ended up in Texas, having traveled nearly 1,600 miles in two days by airliner and train.  Their luggage contained $5,600, an assortment of passports and box-cutting knives similar to those believed to have been the terrorist hijackers' weapon of choice.  When confronted by police looking for drug couriers, they appeared nervous.  Azmath volunteered:  "I did not have anything to do with New York."
