Trump administration threatens funding for UNC/Duke course promoting Islam

This is long overdue: “The Trump administration is threatening to cut funding for a Middle East studies program run by the University of North Carolina and Duke University, claiming that it’s misusing a federal grant to advance ‘ideological priorities’ and unfairly promote ‘the positive aspects of Islam’ but not Christianity or Judaism.” There are courses […]

Women’s March Replaces Anti-Semites with Another Anti-Semite

My latest at PJ Media: It seemed like a positive development, which is rare enough coming from the Left. As Rick Moran noted at PJ Media Tuesday, “the Women’s March has forced the resignations of three founding board members who found themselves in trouble for explicit anti-Semitic statements. National co-chairs Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory, and Linda Sarsour stepped down, […]

Why We Are Bogged Down in Afghanistan

“Why We Are Bogged Down in Afghanistan,” by Pamela Geller, American Thinker, September 17, 2019: Last Friday, I spoke at the Eagle Council in St. Louis, where both the speaker roster and the audience were full of stalwart, indomitable patriots. One of the patriots there was Mark Schneider, President of Gen IV Nuclear Inc. in Chesapeake, […]

Lindsey Graham Is Wrong: It’s Long Past Time to Get Out of Afghanistan

My latest in PJ Media: The occasionally courageous and insightful Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) predicted Tuesday that if President Trump withdraws American troops from Afghanistan, “there will be another 9/11.” Sounding as tough as he ever does, Graham warned: “You may be tired of fighting radical Islam, but they’re not tired of fighting you.” But that’s […]

The New York Times Has a Jewish Problem by Hugh Fitzgerald

An editor at the New York Times has recently apologized for having written several anti-Semitic and racist tweets. Tom Wright-Piersanti is a senior staff editor at the Times. In the years 2008-2010, Wright-Piersanti wrote several offensive tweets, which were uncovered  by the website Breitbart. On New Years’ Day 2010, Wright-Piersanti tweeted, “I was going to […]

Michigan, California, Georgia, Texas, Florida, NJ public schools: Islam glorified, Christianity vilified, U.S. bashed

There is nothing wrong with students learning about Islam in school, if what they’re taught is accurate. But it isn’t. Because of the overpowering influence of the multiculturalist ethos and fears of charges of “Islamophobia” and “racism,” public school materials on Islam and other religions are for the most part heavily biased, with scarcely a […]

Reps. Tlaib, Omar claim Israel is neither an ally nor a democracy

“Denying visit to duly elected members of Congress is not consistent with being an ally. And denying millions of people freedom of movement or expression or self determination is not consistent with being a democracy.” The sponsors of their trip have been linked to anti-Semitism and jihad terrorism. They had nothing to say about that. The […]

Video: Muslim blocks aisle to pray on plane, punches flight attendant, resists arrest while screaming ‘Allahu Akbar’

Ex-Muslims of North America @ExmuslimsOrg published the following comments and video: Passenger attacks flight attendant on Transavia Airline Paris-Tunis flight after finishing his prayer that blocked the cockpit and bathrooms. Plane was rerouted and delayed in Nice, France, where he resisted arrest, yelling “Allahu Akbar.” The face of religious entitlement.  Somehow his peaceful religion […]

Do Christians and Muslims Worship the Same God? Absolutely Not. Here’s Why.

My article in PJ Media on a much-misunderstood topic: The Qur’an says that Christians and Muslims worship the same God (29:46), and so does the Catholic Church. The Irish Catholic newspaper recently considered this question and offered an argument from authority, which is the weakest of all arguments: Christians and Muslims worship the same God because the Catholic Church’s Second Vatican […]

House Democrats consider action against Israeli and U.S. ambassadors over banning of Tlaib and Omar

Senior Democratic members of Congress are “are considering releasing a statement of no confidence” in Israel’s ambassador to the U.S. Ron Dermer and “opening an inspector-general investigation” into U.S. envoy to Israel David Friedman over Israel’s decision to ban Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar from entering Israel. The Democratic lawmakers are advancing the idea […]

Amazon’s CEO Owns a Terror-Linked Paper by Daniel Greenfield

The Washington Post’s ties to Islamic terrorists are a national security risk. Millions of Americans brought Alexa into their homes only to learn, belatedly, that not only software, but human beings, were listening in on them. Amazon employees and contractors from Costa Rica to India were caught reviewing thousands of recordings, of casual requests, private conversations and […]

Philadelphia: Maurice Hill, who wounded six cops in shootout, is devout Muslim who attended jihadi mosque

You can see from the impressive zebiba on Maurice Hill’s forehead that he is a devout Muslim; the zebiba is a bruise that forms from the fact that Muslims in their five daily prayers perform numerous prostrations, pressing their foreheads to the ground. The zebiba is seen as a mark of intense piety. That in […]

CNN’s Jake Tapper attacked by the ‘Islamophobia’ brigade; Leftist/Islamic campaign calls for his firing

A little background about CNN’s Jake Tapper: CNN was “slammed as ‘disgraceful’” after Jake Tapper remained silent when a guest accused Trump radicalizing “more people than ISIS.” Mark Levin has also stated of Tapper: “Now, keep in mind, it’s about Epstein’s apparent suicide, but Jake Tapper wants you to believe it’s about Trump.” Levin also said: “Jake Tapper’s a […]

Nazism returns: European Union to put warning labels on Jewish-made products

Europe has gone down this road before. It didn’t end well. This time, its principal motivator is the continent’s rapidly growing Muslim population, as well as its endless infatuation with an increasingly anti-Semitic Left. “Europe Poised to Put Warning Labels on Jewish-Made Products,” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, August 9, 2019: The European Union is […]
