Here is a good story on the remarks by Pamela Geller at our AFDI Free Speech Rally in Garland, Texas, yesterday. This video has better sound than the one I posted earlier. “Pamela Geller: Muslims Trying to Restrict Free Speech in Texas,” by Bob Price, Breitbart Texas, January 18, 2015: GARLAND, Texas — Pamela Geller told […]

Yet another convert to Islam misunderstands his new religion as somehow obliging him to commit treason and strive to kill and destroy. Where are the programs in U.S. mosques to teach against this sort of thing? “Video shows ‘would-be’ Jacksonville terrorist making bombs,” by Travis Gibson, First Coast News, January 14, 2015: JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A […]
The Pope is speaking generally of religions here, but clearly he is only talking about one religion, and not his own. For those who insult the Pope’s religion, and there are many, have no reason to “expect a punch” from believers, and the Pope must be aware of that. Moreover, in these remarks he flatly […]
On Monday I appeared on Sun TV’s Straight Talk with Pat Bolland to discuss Obama’s coming “Countering Violent Extremism” summit and the ongoing refusal to acknowledge the reality of the jihad threat.
The people are unbowed and ready to stand for freedom. The mainstream media and the leaders of the West, not so much. “Charlie Hebdo ‘All Is Forgiven’ edition sells out in minutes,” Reuters, January 14, 2015: The first edition of Charlie Hebdo published since last week’s deadly attack by Islamist gunmen sold out within minutes at […]
“I believe that we should just wage jihad under our own orders and plan attacks and everything. I believe we should meet up and make our own group in alliance with the Islamic State here and plan operations ourselves.” There will be many other young Muslims acting on the same belief. “Ohio Man Arrested for […]
I spoke on Fox and Friends on January 11, 2015, about the Muslims of America compounds in rural areas in the U.S., and Sharia No-Go Zones in France. Sharia No-Go Zones in France as Incubators of Jihad: RELATED ARTICLES: Paris attacks prompt fears France’s Muslim ‘no-go’ zones incubating jihad Pope Denounces Jihad as ‘Deviant forms of Religion’ […]
“ISIS is already here, we are in your PCs, in each military base. With Allah’s permission we are in CENTCOM now.” They love taunting the weak, and with the Obama Administration, they have so very many targets. “Islamic State Hacks CENTCOM Twitter Feed as Obama Talks Cybersecurity,” by Lachlan Markay, Washington Free Beacon, January 12, 2015 […]
He tried to stab a police officer. A search of his car turned up “suspicious items.” The Islamic State recently called upon Muslims in the West to attack police, and we have seen Muslims attack police recently in Canada and New York City. “Man armed with knives killed by police at Ohio airport: cops,” Sasha […]
There is no indication that General Allen has any idea of what he is talking about. What “idea” does he propose to defeat? He probably means that he is going to destroy the idea that the Islamic State constitutes the new caliphate — which is no doubt one reason why the media establishment keeps churning […]
Over at PJ Media I recap ten of the year’s low-lights: Here are the most significant advances made by Islamic supremacists this year. 10. The abduction of the Nigerian schoolgirls Abubakar Shekau, the leader of the Nigerian jihad group named the Congregation of the People of the Sunnah for Dawah and Jihad and better known as Boko […]
I trust that John Kerry or Joe Biden is on his way to Broward County to explain to Sheheryar Alam Qazi and Raees Alam Qazi how they’re misunderstanding the Religion of Peace. “Accused Oakland Park Terrorist’s Phone Conversations Can Be Used as Evidence, Feds Say,” by Chris Joseph, BrowardPalmBeach.com, January 2, 2015: Oakland Park brothers Sheheryar […]
This post could be entitled The Wacky Side of Sharia were it not for the unaccountable human suffering caused by #2 (and the beliefs that it echoed and reaffirmed) in the Islamic State, as well as in Nigeria. “Six weirdest fatwas of 2014,” Egypt Independent, December 30, 2014: “God’s agents” — that was the term that […]
There is good reason to think so, and it would be heartening to think that there is still at least one high-level official who sees the reality of the situation and is unwilling to close his eyes to it. More on this story. “Obama’s See-No-Islam Policy Forces Military Rethink,” by Neil Munro, Daily Caller, December 29, 2014: […]
What Major General Nagata says is absolutely correct: the U.S. government and military does not understand the Islamic State, and as long as that continues, the U.S. will never defeat the Islamic State. But why don’t they understand the Islamic State? Because the Obama Administration has forbidden investigation of Islamic doctrine in connection with terrorism. The […]
