In Iran, Khadijeh Shahla Jahed, the temporary wife of soccer star Nasser Mohammad Khani, is likely to be executed for murdering Khani’s wife, Laleh Saharkhizan.

Court backs Turkish headscarf ban

Turkey, of course, is the only majority Muslim secular state. It lives in constant tension between resurgent political Islam and the principles of secularism.

Turkish hostages let go “for the sake of our Muslim brothers”

This won’t stop any of the American Muslim spokesmen and their allies from telling us that Islam respects non-Muslims and teaches tolerance, but it is more evidence that the reality is different, and that many Muslims today hold tenaciously to the sharp distinction between believers and unbelievers that runs through the Qur’an. From CNN: The […]

Iranian Government Media: ‘Americans Are Behind Beheadings;’ and ‘Jewish Involvement in 9/11′

Why do they hate us? Well, aside from the jihad imperative and the competition to Sharia hegemony that the US presents in Iraq and elsewhere, it doesn’t help that they lie about us at the highest levels.

Beheadings Fuel Backlash Against Muslims

This AP story (thanks to James) chronicles some ugly anti-Muslim incidents that have occurred in the US since the beheading of Paul Marshall Johnson.
