Bret Stephens: Ignoring jihad and then declaring it over
A few years ago Bret Stephens cowrote an article in the Wall Street Journal to the effect that America did not have a "Muslim problem," because Muslims in America tended to be wealthy and well-educated. (I wrote about it at...
Nasrallah: Hizballah will never disarm
Peace In Our Time. "Nasrallah: Hizbullah will never disarm," from Al-Bawaba, September 5 (thanks to Sr. Soph): Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah has stressed that his group will not disarm even if the Shebaa Farms were liberated and acknowledged that...
Jerusalem: Muslim riots erupt after Ramadan prayers
As this report shows, Ramadan prayers are no different than the Friday khutba, in that they both often incite the believers to violence. In related news, the British PM reminded the Brits that Â"Ramadan teaches patience and humility, and reminds...
The Guardian links Britain's jihadi cells
Jeffrey Imm, however, makes an astute observation. While the Guardian has put together a nifty little interactive "bubble-chain" showing the many links between the British jihadis -- complete with a "source Q" (no, not the purported original text of the...
German jihadists planned "to attack U.S. citizens and U.S. facilities in Germany by placing bombs and taking as many lives as possible"
Why would homegrown German converts to Islam, who never suffered from "racism," want to join the jihad? This case overturns many politically correct assumptions. An update on this story. "'German Jihadists' Targeted Frankfurt, Munich, Prosecutor Says," by Karin Matussek for...
Fitzgerald: The Syrian-Israeli "peace process"
The smug assumptions of the Syrians (reinforced by the idiotic behavior of the Olmert regime, and opposed by too few Israelis, possibly simply worn down and worn out by the continued idiocy of their political elites) need to be discussed...
Muslim man linked to Hamas allowed to become permanent resident of U.S.
Back to back, another Muslim with "questionable" ties is exonerated in court. Though two federal agents assert he is linked to Hamas, the judge sides with an attorney who, after attending a Ramadan fast break in a mosque, concluded that...
Fitzgerald: Questions for the Danes
"AL-Qaeda has released a video featuring a senior commander who was rumoured to have been killed in Pakistan in July, threatening more attacks against Denmark after a suicide bombing on its embassy in Islamabad, according to the SITE group which...
Pakistan denounces recent U.S. attack on Taliban stronghold
Perhaps after years of Pakistani double-dealing, the U.S. military is finally realizing it's best to rely on itself in the war on terror. "Pakistan: US responsible for deadly attack, says military official," from AKI, September 4 (thanks to Jeffrey Imm):...
Al-Qaeda to Denmark: "Allah willing, we will wipe you from the face of the earth''
Yes, it's all about this "As for my final message to the worshippers of the cross in Denmark, I tell them... this isn't the first nor the last retaliation.'' Note that he refers to the cartoons as "aggression." This...
U.S. Open Employee who just happens to be Muslim charged with making bomb threats
Of course, it was just a prank. That it frightened people, in accord with the Qur'anic directive to "strike terror into the hearts of the enemies, of Allah and your enemies" (Qur'an 8:60), had nothing to do with it. How...
Barry Rubin: Things We're Not Told
Barry Rubin, director of the Global Research in International Affairs (GLORIA) Center, offers some precise observations about press coverage: In the olden days, when night watchmen patrolled the streets of towns, they had a standard chant: "Ten o'clock and all...

Fitzgerald: Pakistan, we want our money back
$30 billion in military and economic aid, and debt forgiveness, has been lavished by the American government on Pakistan, and on Bush's loyal friend Musharraf -- whom he not only could count on, but who of course would remain forever...
