Spencer: Obama Busily Appeasing Jihadists

In Human Events today, I discuss the momentous first hundred days. And I expect that we ain’t seen nothin’ yet. “To the Muslim world,” said Barack Obama in his Inaugural Address, “we seek a new way forward, based on mutual interest and mutual respect.” After 100 days, how’s that going? Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad summed […]

General Petraeus: “The Pakistanis have run out of excuses” and are “finally getting serious”

Yet Petraeus was quick to add that “we’ve heard it all before” from the Pakistanis. “Petraeus: Next Two Weeks Critical to Pakistan’s Survival,” by James Rosen for Fox News, April 30: Gen. David Petraeus said he is looking for concrete action by the Pakistani government to destroy the Taliban in the next two weeks before […]

German creationist cell planned September 11 anniversary attacks — no, wait…

Not even Ron-Paulians or Glenn-Beckites.

Stop the presses! Algerian imam defends terrorism!

Yet another Islamic cleric defends the jihadist perspective. Yesterday I received an email from a student in England who wished to dispute what he characterized as my “claim that Islamist terrorism is justified in Islam and properly represents an element in the Islamic tradition of Jihad (whether expansionist or non-expansionist).” He referred to “the prohibition […]

Saudi judge annuls marriage between 8-year-old girl and man in his fifties

But he stopped short of banning child marriage or the practice of selling daughters into marriage. How could he ban child marriage when Muhammad, the prophet of Islam and the “excellent example of conduct” (Qur’an 33:21), married Aisha when she was six and consummated the marriage when she was nine (and he was 54)? An […]

UK airline wipes Israel off the map to avoid offending Muslims

Reality offends them. Raymond just wrote in to remind me that BMI has been following a consistent pattern of dhimmitude, asking flight attendants to walk behind men and wear Muslim garb while in Saudi Arabia, and forbidding staff from taking Bibles and Christian items into Saudi Arabia. “BMI airline wipes Israel off the map,” from […]

Catching Reza Aslan stretching the truth

Kamala, who raised important (and still unanswered) questions in his superb review of Sumbul Ali-Karamali’s The Muslim Next Door: The Qur’an, the Media, and that Veil thing, now examines Reza Aslan‘s How to Win a Cosmic War. Here is Kamala’s take on Aslan’s most egregious (and melodramatic) falsehood — that a one day trip to […]

Egyptian Christians riot after government decision to kill all pigs

Further evidence that the wholly unnecessary Egyptian order to eliminate the country of all swine is based on assuaging Muslim paranoia regarding “unclean pigs” at the expense of creating (more) economic hardships for Christians. More on this story. “Egyptian Christians riot after swine flu cull,” by Philippe Naughton for the Times Online, April 29: Egyptian […]

Israeli intel: “Obama wants to make friends with our worst enemies and until now the worst enemies of the United States”

“Obama will want to show Iran, Syria and radical Muslims that the United States could pressure Israel on a strategic level.” If Israel falls, the jihad will not end. It will, in fact, be emboldened as never before, and focus with new energy and confidence upon Europe and elsewhere. If Israel falls, the United States […]

American professor receives award from genocidal Jew-hating jihadist

Diana West has the details: The little guy (above) is A-jad, Iranian thug-in-chief, and he’s congratulating an American professor named Robert G.

Thailand: Jihadists kill 10 civilians, AP says they’re reacting to “a history of discrimination”

Note how AP considers and breezily dismisses the possibility that these jihadists might be fighting to establish an Islamic state. But are they suffering from discrimination? Hardly — the Thai government is even considering giving them Sharia. “10 killed by suspected insurgents in Thailand,” by Sumeth Panpetch for AP, April 28 (thanks to Pamela): PATTANI, […]
