By Christine Douglass-Williams Israel is regarded as a global leader in the fight against Islamic terrorism. Less well known is that the Jewish state has over the years contended with a major issue of regional migrants entering the country illegally and has successfully halted this infiltration to the point where not a single illegal entered […]

Khomeini removed women’s rights. Today, Iranian women remove the hijab. My latest in PJ Media: News out of Iran is scant since the defenders of the Islamic Republic blocked all social media, but that one woman whom the world saw take off her hijab and stand silently and defiantly has become the symbol of the latest freedom uprising […]
Totalitarian regimes hate and fear the truth, because the narrative they try to impose upon their people always runs afoul of it. So they have to suppress the truth by force. That this would be true of an Islamic Republic as much as it is of a Communist dictatorship is telling, and few dare even […]
For years the U.S. has been showering billions upon various entities, hoping to buy their loyalty or at least compliance. We’ve been played for easy marks by the sharpies of the world. President Trump is calling a halt. He is the first President even to threaten to call a halt. This is the first administration […]
“The U.N. must speak out. We must not be silent. The people of Iran are crying out for freedom.” Of course, she is speaking to a thoroughly compromised organization under the essential control of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), but it is good that she has challenged their hypocrisy. “Nikki Haley addresses Iran […]
At last, an American President. “Trump Admin Working to Incubate Nascent Iranian Revolution,” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, January 2, 2018: The Trump administration is keeping a close eye on the growing protests in Iran, with senior administration officials working to ensure President Donald Trump does not miss an opportunity to incubate a possible revolution […]
When one strong individual stands up, others follow. My latest in FrontPage: In 2009, Iran was swept by demonstrations, just as it is now. But at that time, the protesters were shouting “Allahu akbar,” and there was no indication that they wanted anything but reform of the Islamic regime, not the end of the regime itself. […]
So did at least two other jihadis, Pennsylvania cop shooter Ahmed Aminamin El-Mofty and New York City subway jihad bomber Akayed Ullah. How many is it going to take? “Woman accused of laundering bitcoin for ISIS got U.S. visa thanks to family ties: officials,” Associated Press, December 23, 2017 (thanks to Blazing Cat Fur): NEW YORK – Federal authorities say […]
Another program that should be ended immediately. There will be the usual howls of “racism,” but how many people must die in jihad massacres before officials stop falling for that? “DHS: Suicide-Bomb Suspect Arrived by Chain Migration,” by John Binder, Breitbart News, December 11, 2017: The terror suspect who allegedly attempted to detonate a suicide-bomb in […]
By Richard Sherman Today in America, universities are generally places for free and open discussion and debate, with primarily one exception: if a person actively opposes anti-Semitism ( whether in Mein Kampf or the Koran) and fights for freedom of speech. Numerous individuals who hold these views — basic Enlightenment positions — have become pariahs on many […]
Unless the “Palestinians” get serious about making peace with Israel. So watch for a massive “War is Deceit” initiative from the “Palestinians” in the coming months. “Trump Admin Threatens To Shut Down Palestinian Office In DC,” by Jonah Bennett, Daily Caller, November 18, 2017: The Trump administration said Friday it will shut down the Palestinian Liberation […]
On October 21, Jihad Watch brought you the news of an event in Minnesota called “Exposing Sharia and the Deception of Islam,” that had been canceled by the venue where it was supposed to be held. I just received this email from one of the organizers, explaining what happened next. Please contact the Ironwood Springs Christian Ranch […]
Jihad Watch has been tracking jihad activity in the U.S. and around the world, day in and day out for fourteen years. The Jihad Watch archives, which you can access on the right sidebar, are over 60,000 pieces of evidence. Evidence that the warriors of jihad is advancing against non-Muslim nations in Asia, Europe, and […]
“In the days following Sergeant Bergdahl’s desertion, soldiers with knowledge of the facts were forced to sign nondisclosure agreements. The truth about Sergeant Bergdahl was suppressed at the cost of their peace of mind. Though it was common knowledge inside the unit that Sergeant Bergdahl had deserted, the Army allowed the myth to perpetuate that […]
The new Europe, apparently, will be one that erases Christianity and all its benefits, and bolsters Islam. That’s according to the talk of the intellectual world, many members of which just met to issue the “Paris Statement,” rejecting “the false Christendom of universal human rights” and the “utopian, pseudo-religious crusade for a borderless world.” Here, […]
