Police in Scotland ordered to give special priority to crimes where the victims are Muslim

Because, you see, this will keep them from becoming “radicalized” — i.e., turning to jihad. Living in a society that treats all equally before the law is not enough: Muslims have to be placed in a special class with rights and privileges beyond those of non-Muslims. And that, of course, is precisely the arrangement envisioned […]

Bombarded Somali government goes dhimmi

The government is “saddened” by the AU peacekeepers’ assertive measures vis-a-vis the Islamists, who, as opposed to the former, intentionally and repeatedly kill and terrorize Somali civilians — with, of course, nary a word from the Somali government (yes, Somalia actually has a government). “Somalia ‘saddened’ by AU peacekeepers’ shelling of Mogadishu residential areas,” from […]

Obama administration looking to give Pakistan more money

Actually, a blank check would do very nicely, thank you Even though Pakistan is constantly demonstrating its duplicitous nature, its Islamist zeal, including its greater interest to battle India as opposed to its own homegrown terrorists — here is the U.S. government, instead of holding the Pakistani government more accountable, offering it more money. But […]

Taliban attacks school bus

Pakistan: Charges filed against men who kidnapped Christian sisters, but police ignore arrest order

An update on this story, and another manifestation of a much broader problem in Pakistan: The increasingly strident unwillingness to respect and enforce the rule of secular law.

Raymond Ibrahim: A Response to the Critics: Taqiyya Revisited (Part II)

[See here for part I.] Regarding my more recent “War and Peace””and Deceit””in Islam,” others have written to me complaining that, by not juxtaposing more “moderate interpretations” to the mainstream ones I delineated (e.g., Tabari, Ibn Kathir, al-Qurtubi, al-Razi, al-Arabi, et al), I am supposedly “distorting.” While there are in fact “moderate interpretations,” most of […]

Obama target of “HIV Jihad”

An Ethiopian man with HIV sent Obama letters tainted with the former’s blood. Officials believe the man is “mentally disturbed” (perhaps not even fit for trial). Yet, this same man “was arrested by police in 2006 after starting a fire in the middle of a crowded Chicago intersection. When officers arrived on the scene, he […]
