Cheney: Obama making U.S. less safe
"These are evil people. And weÂ're not going to win this fight by turning the other cheek" Or, in Obama's own words, "winning hearts and minds" and censoring language. "Obama making U.S. less safe, Cheney says," from Political Ticker,...
Jihadists using male rape to turn men into suicide bombers
Just as jihadists rape women in order to turn them into suicide bombers, they're raping men also. "Al-Qaeda accused of using male rape to 'create' suicide bombers," from PinkNews, February 4 (thanks to Weasel Zippers): Islamic terrorists are raping young...
Missing from Obama's outreach to Muslims "is any sense that the United States has long been the target of jihadist fanatics who enjoy widespread support in the Muslim world"

11 ex-Gitmo prisoners flee the Saudi "rehabilitation program" and join up with terrorist groups

Obama: U.S. choosing words carefully in terror war
Winning the "hearts and minds" of Muslims? It appears Obama is going to implement the new lexicon of "sensitive" words introduced by various U.S. governmental agencies. However, not only will he most likely drop words such as "Islamic terrorism,"...
"Do most really believe it makes sense to shut down Gitmo for world adulation, while we possibly put Americans at greater risk by relocating these jihadists within our borders?"
Maybe Obama and Murtha and Co. think the jihadists are not dangerous -- that they are poor innocent lambs caught up in George W. Bush's Islamophobic Crusade. They may be surprised. "Top 10 Reasons Gitmo Should Be on Alcatraz," by...
UN: Hamas stole blankets and food meant for the poor, starving Palestinians

Spencer: Obama Misunderstands the Global Jihad
In this week's Human Events column, I explain that Obama misunderstands the true nature and dimensions of the jihad threat -- as did his predecessor. Â"My job to the Muslim world is to communicate that the Americans are not your...
UK woman admits producing leaflet that misunderstood Islam
Somehow she got the nutty idea that jihad had something to do with waging war against non-Muslims. Ah, the glorious complexity of the concept of jihad in Islam! How many Muslims misunderstand it as having something to do with warfare...
She had them raped and then turned them into suicide bombers so they could escape the shame
Mother of the Believers Otherwise they would have been killed anyway -- by stoning as adulterers -- but this way, they were celebrated as heroes. "Iraqi woman had 80 women raped then recruited as suicide bombers," from Agence France-Presse,...
U.K.: Some jihadists under house arrest "manage to maintain some contact with terrorist associates ... and a determination to become operational in the future"
Abu Qatada's story is looking less like an isolated case. "Britain: 15 terror suspects under house arrest," by David Stringer for the Associated Press, February 3 (thanks to Sr. Soph): LONDON -- Terror suspects being held under Britain's house arrest-style...

Pakistan: Taliban orders lawyers to renounce the courtroom and its "infidel judicial system"
