Let me list some of them: 1. The correct definition of "victory" in Iraq should be an outcome that weakens Islam -- the Camp of Islam and Jihad -- not only in Iraq but elsewhere. There is no other justification...
Arizona: Muslim engineer guilty of illegally accessing nuclear plant computer
I'm sure he only wanted the nuclear information in order to generate electricity. "Iranian engineer guilty in Arizona nuclear plant software case," from The Associated Press, May 27 (thanks to Sr. Soph): PHOENIX: An Iranian engineer has been convicted of...
Taliban leader: Mistah bin Laden, he dead
The horror, the horror? Nah Is Osama bin Laden dead? Yet? Still? More importantly, does it really matter? It does not. The jihad, as Joe Biden and almost everyone else doesn't realize, is not a movement organized around a...
Iran promises Hamas more weapons, money
Buds In case Hamas can't seize enough American-made weapons from Fatah, they can always fall back on Iran. The pretext here is the Israel-Syria talks, which makes this even more of a cruel joke, since -- as always --...

"Pray, pray, Allah is great. America is destroyed by a fatal jihadist nuclear strike"
Is it a coded message? An attempt to "strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah" (Qur'an 8:60)? Or something more? "Terrorism: New al-Qaeda video calls for nuclear strike," by Hamza Boccolini for AKI, May 27 (thanks to...
Fitzgerald: Defeating the Jihad by Dividing the Jihadists
The way to divide the Camp of Islam and Jihad is to first identify those pre-existing fissures, large and small, that exist, and to figure out what should, or should not be done, to widen them. I have written many...
Fitzgerald: Clarifying my positions
A poster here at Jihad Watch recently made a series of statements in attempted rebuttal of my position, long available here, at the "Articles by Hugh Fitzgerald" link, from early 2004 -- a position from which I have not wavered,...

In Human Events today I discuss the strange circumstances surrounding the departure of Ahmed Bedier from CAIR, and what it all may and may not mean. Joe Kaufman has a better piece on the same issue today at FrontPage, but...
