It is simple common sense that soldiers who are Muslim might be hearing from other Muslims that no non-Sharia government has any legitimacy, and that the U.S. is the enemy of Muslims for waging war in Afghanistan and Iraq, etc. It is simple common sense to try to determine the allegiances and loyalties of Muslim […]

If Masood Farivar had been a former member of the Ku Klux Klan, would the Voice of America have hired him? If he were calling for members of the Aryan Nations to be “reintegrated” into Western society, would the New York Times have given him a platform? Islamic jihadists are no less violent, ruthless, and […]
It isn’t enough that U.S. taxpayers have for years now been subsidizing the Pakistanis’ support for jihad terrorists. The New York Times reported on that at length back in 2008. No,that jizya is not enough. There has to be more, more, more — more money spent, more submission, more tribute. Even up to and including a fiberglass […]
“We do not suggest that these contacts are to be blamed and have no evidence to suggest that they were improper, but rather view them as an important part of the story of Tamerlan’s decline.” That doesn’t make any sense. The FBI visits are “an important part of the story of Tamerlan’s decline,” but they’re […]
Esther Wallace, chairwoman of the West Anaheim Neighborhood Development Council, said she objects to Little Arabia garnering an official designation. ‘There’s only one ethnic group that’s being promoted and that’s the Arab American group,’ Wallace said. ‘We don’t have a Little Mexico or a Little Korea. All the pressure seems to be on putting a […]
There is no indication that Leland Yee is a true believer. He just wanted to make a buck. And in this age when Islamic jihadists and supremacists are awash with cash, the temptation can be too much for corrupt and short-sighted Infidels. And he knew what kind of entity he was dealing with: “According to […]
This video is a special edition of The Glazov Gang, filmed live at the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s West Coast Retreat at the Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes, California. The wide-ranging discussion touched on the Israeli / “Palestinian” conflict, the Muslim persecution of Christians, and the Obama Administration’s willful ignorance regarding the nature and magnitude […]
This is indeed a shocker, as it goes against the consistent policy line of Obama’s FBI and Justice Department. But it is a most welcome development. The SPLC is one of the Left’s foremost propaganda organs, tarring any group that dissents from its extreme political agenda (such as our American Freedom Defense Initiative, and this […]
At least two of the three victims of the September 11, 2011 throat-slashing were Jews. The Qur’an designates the Jews the worst enemies of the Muslims (5:82) and directs believers to “strike the necks” of the unbelievers (47:4). Hamas-linked CAIR is enraged that Todashev was killed, but now the Obama Justice Department, despite its anxiousness […]
“The discovery raises fears of a possible link between Captain Zaharie, 53, and terror groups whose members routinely use untraceable SIM cards.” However, like everything else surrounding this plane’s disappearance and the subsequent investigation, it is inconclusive. “Police hunt mystery woman who made final phone call to doomed jet captain as first picture emerges of […]
This study makes a statement that is absurd on its face when it says that “religious practice” plays no role in “violent radicalization,” when in reality we have seen time and time again that jihad terrorists are devout, observant Muslims who appeal to peaceful Muslims by invoking the Qur’an and the example of Muhammad and […]
We see this again and again: Leftists and Islamic supremacists increasingly imitate Hitler’s Brownshirts, violently menacing anyone who dares stand up against their support for jihad terror, oppression and hatred. It is a tacit admission of abject intellectual bankruptcy, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t potentially lethal. “Palestinian Activists Violently Threaten Pro-Israel Students,” by […]
“Bell roused suspicions at the Islamic Center in Jacksonville in 2012 for discussions he was having with teens who attended the center, including talks about jihad and the civil war in Syria, said Parvez Ahmed, the board secretary at the Northeast Florida center. Ahmed said parents came to the leadership with concerns, and center attorneys […]

Nightclubs: haram. Bombing nightclubs and murdering people: halal. Especially when avenging Osama bin Laden. Is anyone in Tampa asking how Sami Osmakac came to misunderstand so spectacularly the religion they are committed as a matter of dogma to regarding as peaceful? He castigated even the local Muslims, according to this piece. But did he have […]
