“The media can smear us and the President can stand with them. We the people are not having it.”

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 […]

Florida convert to Islam gets 20 years — made videos on how to build “homemade weapons of mass destruction”

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 […]

Pope Francis: “You can’t make a toy out of the religions of others…In freedom of expression there are limits”

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 […]

Huge lines to get new edition of Charlie Hebdo — Sells out within Minutes

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 […]

Islamic State hacks CENTCOM Twitter feed as Obama addresses nation on cyber security

“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 […]

Florida Muslim had letter that talked about “uniting a Muslim army under one flag to wage Islamic war”

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 […]

Is Major General Nagata subtly questioning Obama’s refusal to acknowledge the reality of jihad terror?

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: […]

U.S. Special Ops commander on Islamic State: “We do not understand the movement, and until we do, we are not going to defeat it”

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 […]
