“Right now, ISIL’s primary focus is consolidating territory in the Middle East region to establish their own Islamic State.” Yes, but they have made it abundantly clear that that is not their only goal, and that they desire ultimately to strike inside the United States. We are not at war with them, but they most […]

Islamic anti-Semitism is indeed not based on race or color. It’s based on religion. The Qur’an puts forward a clear, consistent image of the Jews: they are scheming, treacherous liars and the most dangerous enemies of the Muslims. Allah gave food laws to the Jews because of their “wrongdoing,” and for “for their averting from […]
Pat Condell once again exposes the truths that Leftists and Islamic supremacists are doing all they can to obscure. RELATED COLUMNS: Australia: Pro-Hamas Jew-haters terrorize bus full of Jewish children, screaming “Kill the Jews” and “Heil Hitler” AP: Motive for jihad murder of U.S. two-star general by Afghan soldier remains “unclear” France 24 reporter finds […]
“At 96,000 residents, Dearborn is much smaller than the other cities in the top five, suggesting that its significant Muslim population—40 percent of its population is of Arab descent, according to the U.S. Census Bureau—has been disproportionately targeted for watchlisting.” Hamas-linked CAIR is already manning the barricades over this, but after all, there is no […]
It appears now that the American victim of the insider jihad murder incident about which I posted here was a U.S. Army Major General Harold J. Greene. He is a casualty of his government’s unshakable dogma that Islam is a religion of peace, and that therefore anyone who opposes the Taliban must be a moderate Muslim Jeffersonian […]
This is Washington, DC, in the age of Barack Obama. And since the political winds don’t look as if they’re going to shift anytime soon, this is a glimpse of America’s future. “Pro-Palestinian Tries to Light Counter-Protestor’s Israeli Flag on Fire at Massive DC March,” by Jarrett Stepman and Inez Feltscher, Breitbart News, August 2, 2014: […]
Is the UN really anything else these days but an arm of the global jihad? Is there any sound reason to continue to fund it and support it? It has become a stick that the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) uses to beat Israel. That is all. It deserves nothing but the contempt of free […]
Obama ought to be impeached for this alone. He has turned the United States government into an instrument to punish his political enemies, and shows in this particular incident how deeply he hates Israel and how ardently he supports the “Palestinian” jihad. Obama and the Left seem bent on destroying what was one of the […]
The Jew-hatred is increasingly open and savage worldwide. Its perpetrators apparently sense that those who might be expected to fight against this evil have lost the will and the moral courage to do so. Evil has increasingly free rein, and it is going to get worse. “Synagogue Vandalized In NE Miami-Dade,” CBS Miami, July 28, 2014 […]
“Defense attorney Valerie Masters, who vowed to appeal the conviction, said [Fares] Mustafa was also a victim of violence. Growing up in a strict Muslim community in New York City, Mustafa was beaten daily by his father, she wrote in court papers. His mother was powerless to intervene because she, too, was the victim of […]
Why, it’s genocide! It’s murder! Oh, wait — if the “Palestinians” are the ones killing “Palestinian” children, then it doesn’t matter. There will be no international media outcry. “Hamas Killed 160 Palestinian Children to Build Terror Tunnels,” by Myer Freimann, Tablet, July 25, 2014 (thanks to Jerusalem Posts): As the death toll of Operation Protective Edge rises, […]
When was the last time Salon criticized Muslims for promoting holy war, subjugating women, and oppressing gays in the name of their religion? That’s right, never. They routinely ignore, or downplay and diminish, the ways in which Islamic jihadists use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and the oppression of women and […]
They are marking the Christians’ homes with a ن, a nūn for Nasara, which is the Qur’an’s word for Christians: Nazarenes. Probably they are doing this so that they can know from which houses to demand the jizya, the tax that the Qur’an demands that the subjugated People of the Book pay in the Islamic state: “Fight […]
“He maintained she ‘disrespected’ him by swearing and believed he was entitled to ‘discipline’ his wife of 21 years.” And he was: “Men are the managers of the affairs of women for that God has preferred in bounty one of them over another, and for that they have expended of their property. Righteous women are […]
“If America attacks Iraq every American embassy in the world will be exposed and attacked with car bombs.” “If the United States bomb Iraq, every American citizen is a legitimate target.” Jihad Watch posted these threats on June 27. The U.S. government appears to have caught up nine days later. “Isis threaten to plant bombs at […]
