In this excellent piece, George Neumayr refers to the rupture of relations between the Vatican and al-Azhar that took place during the time of Pope Benedict. As I explained here, that rupture took place because Pope Benedict dared to speak out about the Muslim persecution of Christians. By contrast, Francis energetically defends Islam, and leaves […]

“I see a lot of love in Christianity, I see a lot of anger and hate in Islam,” stated my anonymous Iranian-American interlocutor to me in his condominium building manager’s office. My interview partner related a revealing personal spiritual and geographic journey away from his boyhood Islamic faith and Iranian homeland to an adult Christian […]
The thrust of the argument here is that to shut down voices that the Leftist establishment considers odious — which includes mine, although I am not mentioned in this article (no, I am not Richard Spencer) — is aiding the oppressed to have a voice that they are usually denied. This is an argument for […]
How asinine is American academia today? It just keeps getting worse. What expanse of territory does the NRA control? How many people has the NRA beheaded and brutalized there? What calls has the NRA issued to its followers and other sympathetic people to murder civilians in the U.S. and other countries? Where are the sex […]
This attack should lead European authorities to realize that they’re in a war, and that it’s getting worse, and that they’re not winning, and that they need to undertake a drastic reassessment of their approach to this whole problem. But it probably won’t. “Paris attack: Isis claims responsibility for shooting that left one police officer […]
The far-Left Islamic apologist Malcolm Nance is the quintessential establishment counter-terror “expert.” (I had to laugh when I saw his self-description: he says he is a “former Arabic speaking naval intelligence counter-terrorism and intelligence officer specializing in the Middle East.” “Former Arabic speaking,” eh? How did he forget all his Arabic?) His book on the […]
Marine Le Pen said: The choice on Sunday is simple: It is a choice between a France that is rising again and a France that is sinking. She is right. Far too many Westerners are still licking old (now gangrenous) wounds from eons ago. Europeans and white people are deemed inherently or inveterately evil because […]
It is unclear as of yet whether or not Kori Ali Muhammad had an ISIS membership card, hence cops are holding out hope that he is “mentally ill.” And so the denial and willful ignorance persist in the face of the ongoing jihad. “3 people killed in ‘random’ shootings in downtown Fresno,” BNO News, April […]
Why is this the case, and why is it the case year after year? Might it have something to do with these teachings? “Fight those who do not believe in Allah or the Last Day, and do not forbid what has been forbidden by Allah and his messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, even […]
Brexit group Leave Means Leave says the measures will help migration back to levels last seen in the 1990s and finally hit the failed Tory target of tens of thousands. The group… says Brexit provides a “golden opportunity” to stem immigration at last. This would be a good start for Britain, yet while the main […]
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. Take Reza Aslan, CNN’s resident “cannibal”: he recently claimed that “Islamophobia” — defined by CAIR and others […]
QS 5:51, that is, chapter 5 verse 51 of the Qur’an, says: “O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you – then indeed, he is of them. Indeed, Allah guides not the wrongdoing […]
Why is this mosque still open? Because that great warrior against “extremism,” Theresa May, wouldn’t dare offend Muslims by taking action against a source of incitement in the ongoing jihad against her country. “Westminster killer’s link to Luton mosque,” by Andrew Gilligan and Robin Henry, The Sunday Times, April 9 2017: The Westminster terrorist had […]
“Anders Thornberg, head of the Swedish Security Service, said ‘the suspect didn’t appear in our recent files but he earlier has been in our files.’” One long-term strategy of the Islamic State is to overwhelm the security services of the West with so many jihadis and would-be jihadis that they collapse. And they’re well on […]
This is the result of the relentless and ubiquitous hard-Left indoctrination that passes for education at Harvard and on virtually all university and college campuses today. If these students get the chance to see the Islamic State in action up close, which they very well might courtesy of the policies they themselves support, they will […]
