At least Aldawsari has the satisfaction of knowing that he tied up the Infidel’s resources and made him spend a good deal of money on this frivolous appeal, and that in itself is a kind of jihad. “Conviction upheld in Saudi student Texas bomb plot,” by Michael Graczyk for the Associated Press, January 24 (thanks to […]

This article is as risible as Karen Armstrong’s likening Muhammad to Gandhi, and is as gracefully written as a seventh grader’s book report. But for the Huffington Post, accuracy and quality are of no import: if it downplays the grim reality of Islamic jihad terror, then it’s good enough for them. The author of this […]
On this edition of my ABN Jihad Watch show, I interview Mark Tapson, a Hollywood-based writer and screenwriter and a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center, on the depiction of Islam and Muslims in Hollywood feature films, and how it has been affected by 9/11 and the trumped-up hysteria over “Islamophobia.” [youtube]http://youtu.be/aJlWGUssGl8[/youtube]
He was only about 1,400 years off. “Muslim anti-Semitism is only decades old, Obama claims,” by Neil Munro in the Daily Caller, January 21: Experts are scoffing at President Barack Obama’s apparent belief that widespread Muslim hatred of Jews is only decades old. “Obama reveals that he has no idea, or doesn’t want to give the […]

He doesn’t care, of course, about the fact that if his stout Jeffersonians prevailed, women and non-Muslims would be denied basic rights in the ensuing “democracy.” And as […]
Hardest hit: Robert Pape, who several years ago published with great fanfare a study that purported to show that most suicide terror is committed by non-Muslims. Not only was Pape wrong; he was on the dole of Hamas-linked CAIR. “Study warns of growing threat to Israel from Al-Qaeda,” by Avi Issacharoff for the Times of Israel, January 14: […]
As Chris Christie’s bridges come tumbling down, Jihad Watch reader Darcy asked to repost this piece I wrote in August 2012, to remind people that not only is Christie a thoroughly corrupt politician, but one who is deeply compromised and in bed with Islamic supremacists of a highly unsavory sort: “Christie’s Embrace of Islamo-Fascists,” from FrontPage, […]
…despite the best efforts of Leftists and Islamic supremacists to shut it down. Pamela Geller has the story: Good news! Our honor killing ad will be running in Florida (above). Over 90% of honor killings worldwide are Islamic, and Tampa was the site of the Fatima Abdullah honor murder. Fatima Abdullah was a Muslim woman who was beaten and abused by […]
