Report: Eritrea supplying arms to Somali jihadists
This move appears to be a grossly short-sighted attempt to bolster the Somali jihadists as a counterbalance to Ethiopia, from which Eritrea separated in the 1990s. The more the jihadists prevail in Somalia, the stronger a base they will have...
Saudi officials address al-Qaeda "cells," co-opting infidel speech
Why would the Saudis use the word "cell" -- implying surreptitious jihadis living underground and moving in shadows -- which cannot be the case, definitely not as in the West (except, maybe, for Britain)? After all, when it comes to...
India: Pakistan's nukes "already partly" in the hands of jihadis
If not already, definitely soon enough. "India thinks Pak N-sites already in radical hands: Report," from the Times of India, May 16 (thanks to Jeffrey Imm):WASHINGTON: India's Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has told President Obama that nuclear sites in Pakistan's...
Pakistan: GirlsÂ' madrassas expanding at a dramatic rate
Apparently the Taliban's incessant bomb attacks on girls' schools are not motivated by females getting an education, but rather their getting the wrong (i.e., secular) education. According to this report, the "talibanization" of Pakistan's youth -- boys and girls --is...
Egyptian fatwa: "The pigs living today are descended from those Jews, and that is why Allah forbade us to eat them"
"In addition, one of the things that Jesus will do when he returns to earth on Judgment Day is kill all the pigs, and that is proof that they are descended from Jews. All the pigs on earth will be...
MILF raids Philippine village, uses hostages as human shields
The Moro Islamic Liberation Front doesn't seem to have any problem using civilian hostages in furthering the goals of its jihad. Evidently this group is filled with still more Misunderstanders of Islam, right? Because we all know that this kind...
Spencer talks free speech and censorship on the Savage Nation
Last night. Thanks to Occidental Soapbox for capturing the audio. The article to which Michael Savage and I were referring is here....
Honor killings about men controlling women, "purifying through blood"
An interesting glimpse into the psychology of honor killings. Of course, no mention is made of the Islamic underpinnings of this phenomenon. A manual of Islamic law certified by Al-Azhar as a reliable guide to Sunni orthodoxy says that "retaliation...
Funding the jihad: House approves $2.3 billion for Pakistan
It went to the jihadis under Musharraf. How have things changed since then? Certainly the Zardari government is moving aggressively against the Taliban now, but will it take the necessary steps to root out Taliban sympathizers from the government and...
Eurasia Islamic Council: Islamophobia is "one of the greatest obstacles to world peace"
Oh, and "terrorism," too. It's a long-standing rule of apologetics and dissimulation: Keep it general, and the uninitiated will project what they want to hear onto the generalities, thus guarding against uncomfortably specific questions. "Islamophobia denounced at Eurasia Islamic Council...
Kuwait: Islamists call for women to refrain from voting, running for office
One politician explains that "they are opposed to women being a member of parliament for religious reasons because all the prophets are men not women for good reason and Islam says the burden for office is too great for women."...
Egypt finds massive weapons cache in Sinai
Again, imagine if all of the money and effort that has been poured into waging jihad against Israel had been spent on developing Palestinian-controlled areas. Those areas could resemble Monaco or Dubai. But the Palestinian leadership and their allies have...
