Now the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) is suing the Canadian Prime Minister for daring to suggest they have ties to Hamas, which styles itself “the Muslim Brotherhood for Palestine.” “Current NCCM / CAIR-CAN Director Khadija Haffajee was on the Editorial advisory board of a magazine hailing the Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna as […]

The U.S.-backed Free Syrian Army — those are the “moderates,” you know. How moderate? This moderate: in July 2013, Free Syrian Army fighters entered the Christian village of Oum Sharshouh and began burning down houses and terrorizing the population, forcing 250 Christian families to flee the area. Worthy News reported that just two days later, […]

Yet another mosque run by misunderstanders of Islam who somehow got the crazy idea that jihad had something to do with warfare against unbelievers. Mosque leaders must have been reading the literature of greasy Islamophobes. “Kenyan police find trove of evidence in Mombasa mosque raid,” from Sabahi via Hiiraan Online, February 5: Kenyan police have […]

Women in Aceh must always wear headscarves when out in public — which must thrill Robert George and Michael Potemra. Islamic spokesmen in the West constantly insist that Sharia applies only to Muslims, and so non-Muslims need not be concerned about it. The government of Aceh seems to have missed that memo. “Indonesia: Aceh Province […]

Pre-prep school is for children before the ages of seven or eight, so these are essentially first graders who are being subjected to this indoctrination and subtle proselytizing. When is their trip to a church to learn prayers in Latin or Greek (or English, for that matter)? When is their trip to a synagogue to […]

St. Peter’s Church, “the Jazz Church,” regularly holds Jazz Vespers, and was even the site of the funeral of the towering jazz saxophonist John Coltrane (at the funeral other jazz giants, Albert Ayler and Ornette Coleman, performed). In stark contradiction (although they wouldn’t think so) to its celebration of America’s greatest indigenous art form, it […]

The freedom of speech is our fundamental bulwark against tyranny. And it is under assault by entities in the U.S. such as the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and Reza Aslan’s Aslan Media, which, like the Tunisian government here, move quickly to shut down any criticism of Islam, including simply criticism of jihad violence, […]

This is yet another sign of the erosion of Turkish secularism and its galloping re-Islamization, but what is noteworthy here is that the complaint was brought by Adnan Oktar (pictured above). Under the name Harun Yahya, Oktar has published a huge amount of Islamic apologetics material, including some “moderate” Muslim explanations of why jihad violence […]

The Army of Muhammad (Tanzim Jaysh Muhammad), one of the Sunni jihadi organizations operating in Syria and which is named after the prophet of Islam, has just called for the creation of an Islamic, jihadi army of at least 800,000 fighters, composed of all Muslim nationalities, from Europe, Africa, and Asia.  Its stated purpose would […]

[Via CBN News] As former Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi’s trials continue, it’s enlightening to consider what is likely to be one of the centerpieces of the trial: longstanding accusations that Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood party worked with foreign terrorist organizations, including al-Qaeda, against the national security of Egypt. Based on these accusations of high […]

Despite the abundant attestation for child marriage in Islamic law, most non-Muslims remain completely ignorant of it, because Islamic apologists in the West routinely deny that it exists, insisting that Aisha was 18 when Muhammad married her, and claiming that the incidence of child marriage in Muslim countries is due solely to cultural factors (they […]

Honey, the new neighbors are wearing ski masks, waving around AK-47s and screaming “Allahu akbar.” What could possibly go wrong? “Administration eases restrictions on asylum seekers with loose terror ties,” by Judson Berger for, February 6 (thanks to all who sent this in): The Obama administration has unilaterally eased restrictions on asylum seekers with […]
