Israelis worried that prisoner release could embolden Hizballah
"Anyone that kidnaps an Israeli will now know that Israel is willing to pay an extremely high price, totally out of proportion with what the other side will pay." No kidding, you think that might embolden Hizballah? "Israelis uneasy over...
Pat Buchanan says Israeli "Fifth Column" stirring up war with Iran
Pat Buchanan has been going from bad to worse, suggesting that the war against Hitler was unnecessary, and now charging that "Israel and its Fifth Column in this city seek to stampede us into war with Iran." Fifth Column. The...
Fitzgerald: The speech Obama should deliver
"We must also engage, however, in the more difficult task of understanding the sources of such madness. The essence of this tragedy, it seems to me, derives from a fundamental absence of empathy on the part of the attackers: an...
Reality behind crying Gitmo kid vid: "My lasting image of Omar is of him crouched in the rubble waiting for U.S. troops to get close enough so he could take one of them out"
Just a kid Footage of Omar Khadr weeping and calling out for Mommy has been circulating around, renewing charges that Guantanamo is a torture camp. Yet a soldier who encountered Omar Khadr in different circumstances says that he deserves...
Altruist or Terrorist?
The "Arab mujahadin" who went to Afghanistan to fight the Soviet occupation also claimed an altruistic desire to help their fellow Muslims. They also later went on to become al-Qaeda. "Jihad 'interested terror accused,'" from the BBC, July 15: Aabid...
Hamas says "Let [Israel] answer our demands" as jihadists get heroes' welcome in Lebanon
As predicted here, the exchange of live, guilty jihadists for the bodies of soldiers kidnapped and killed by Hizballah has emboldened Hamas to press its demands in return for the release of Gilad Schalit. "Lebanese militant released in Israel prisoner...
"For a sincere Muslim, guns, warfare and weaponry are...something which enables him to carry out the obligation of the Jihad"
Who said that? Spencer? Bostom? Trifkovic? Davis? Some other greasy Islamophobe? Nope. It was Momin Khawaja, now on trial in Ontario on terror charges, writing mash notes to his beloved. Of course, the Correct Thinkers would have us believe that...
Calling a spade a spade: jihad, genocide, slavery and sharia law
Any mention of Â'shariaÂ' is now outlawed at the UNHRC. More reflections by David G. Littman: Â"HereÂ's the smell of blood still: all the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand.Â" - Lady Macbeth [nor oil from Arabia...
While Saudi king promotes interfaith dialogue, Saudi textbooks still teach hatred and intolerance of everything -- and everyone -- non-Islamic
True enough. For all the Saudi king's "gestures" of peace and goodwill, what Saudi children are being taught on a daily basis says it all. Â"New Report Shows Saudi Ministry Textbooks Still Teach Extreme Intolerance,Â" from Market Watch, July 15:Today...
Malkin: McCain, Obama both clueless on jihad
I have seen websites that were initially about many topics become attack sites narrowly focused on one man only, and that is never going to happen here: after three posts on Obama this morning it is useful to remember that...
Egypt: the next war-torn Lebanon, due to Muslim-Christian conflicts?
Unlikely. Whereas in Lebanon, Christians and Muslims are more or less equal in number (ideal conditions for civil war) in Egypt, the Copts are estimated to be approximately 10% of the otherwise Muslim population (ideal conditions for genocide). Â"Egypt Faces...
Obama: New Yorker cover insults Muslims
Ho hum, another outrage It is hard to follow his line of thinking here. This cover insults Muslims because it depicts Obama as an Islamic terrorist? How exactly is a satirical drawing of a portrait of Osama bin Laden...
Spencer: Obama and Islamic Jihad
In FrontPage this morning I discuss Obama's recent remarks about Islam and jihad: On Sunday CNN aired an interview Barack Obama recently gave to Fareed Zakaria, in which the candidate expressed the opinion that Islamic jihad is a result of...
Spencer: Obama Throws A Billion Muslims Under the Bus
In Human Events today I discuss the allegedly "tasteless and offensive" New Yorker cover, which we are supposed to believe is worse than any other political cartoon ever drawn all the way back to the Coffin Handbill. While not backing...

Yemen launches "virtue and vice" police

Saudi group tries to halt marriage of 10-year-old girl to man in his sixties
There's that child marriage again. But it has nothing, mind you, nothing to do with Islam. Except the inconvenient matter of Muhammad's marriage to Aisha (Bukhari 5.58.234). "Saudi group seeks to prevent sexagenarian from marrying child," from Deutsche Presse Agentur,...

"This will be an opportunity for the French and all visitors to the Louvre to see that Islam is progress, science, finesse, modernity, and that fanaticism in the name of Islam is a corruption of Islam"
So said Sarkozy at the opening of the new Islamic art section of the Louvre. How on earth will Islamic art prove that there is no ideology of Islamic jihad supremacism? "Sarkozy lauds Islam at Louvre ceremony with Saudi prince,"...

UK: Muslim preacher calls for amputations and lashings
Hey, he just wants Sharia, and with so many British authorities wanting to give it to him, what's the big deal? "Hardline Muslim preacher in the UK calls for Islamic-amputation and lashings," from ANI, July 14 (thanks to all who...

Yemen's child bride case: "A lot of people in the public don't think that this is wrong or that what happened to her was abuse"
And what this article ignores is the role of Muhammad's marriage to Aisha -- consummated when she was nine -- in why the practice of child marriage not only persists, but is so often praised in the Islamic world. Nujood...

Â"ExpertÂ" reassures the U.K. that an Islamic takeover is not possible
Once again, the factors this Â"expertÂ" assesses all revolve around "material" causesÂ—from poverty to birth-rateÂ—and totally discount the influence of ideology, theology, zeal, and, that mother of all devastating wars, pure hate. "Mission expert dismisses fears of Islamic take-over in...
