Islamic State: California fires ‘Allah’s punishment for you. And insha Allah, you will see more fires.’

New Brazil President to close ‘Palestinian’ embassy: “You do not negotiate with terrorists”

Gilban, JTA, October 29, 2018: RIO DE JANEIRO (JTA) — Brazilians elected a president who is a far-right, ardently pro-Israel veteran pol who once declared “My heart is green, yellow, […]

A Black Book on Jihad

Matthew Hanley reviews scholar Robert Spencer’s historical survey of jihad in which the last chapter is aptly titled “The West Loses the Will to Live”.  Anyone genuinely curious about the history of the 20th century has probably heard about the Black Book of Communism, an exhaustive account of the damage Marxist ideology inflicted around the globe.

Democrat Senate candidate Kyrsten Sinema: “I don’t care” if Muslims go fight for Taliban against U.S.

The Left hates America, and considers “right-wing extremists,” a term all too often applied to American patriots, far more of a threat than jihad terrorists. It used to be that this fact was dismissed as hysterical hyperbole. Now it is becoming increasingly clear. “Senate Dem hopeful Kyrsten Sinema said ‘I don’t care’ if people go […]

Google briefing says tech companies should abandon ‘American tradition’ of free speech

Google’s burying of material critical of Islam, along with Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube censorship of material that violates Sharia blasphemy laws, show that the “official Google source” that said that “the document should be considered internal research, and not an official company position” was lying. This is already being implemented on a massive scale. If it […]

Stanford University: Susan Rice’s Republican Son Assaulted by Leftist-Fascist

This incident is one of many recent indications of the fact that the increasingly authoritarian Left, having comprehensively lost the public debate, is more and more resorting to violence in order to intimidate those whom it hates into silence. Then, taking a page from their jihadist allies, Leftist thugs turn around and claim victimhood, as […]

Trump’s new counterterrorism strategy singles out ‘radical Islamists’

Bolton says: “Radical Islamist terrorist groups represent the preeminent transnational terrorist threat to the United States, and to United States’ interests abroad.

Disgraced Cardinal Praised ISNA and ‘True Islam’ by Andrew Harrod

“We know what Islam is and we know what lessons Islam is going to teach all of us,” former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick declared reassuringly  on May 31, 2015, at Crystal City, Virginia’s Hyatt Regency Hotel. McCarrick’s comments before an Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) interfaith conference recall how this now disgraced Catholic clergyman led for many years the Catholic Church’s often […]

Woman accusing Muslim Congressman of abuse says Democrats ‘smeared, threatened, isolated’ her

Of course. Karen Monahan couldn’t reasonably have expected anything else. Keith Ellison is a key component of the Democrats’ mythology, fronting claims of Muslim victimhood as far back as Peter King’s hearings on terrorism, and intimidating people who would explore the jihadis’ motivating ideology — for, you see, here is a moderate Muslim, a fiercely […]
