Apr 11, 2014 09:50 pm | Robert SpencerThe Imam Suhaib Webb of the Islamic Society of Boston is a renowned “moderate” and — of course — a darling of the mainstream media. The hopelessly clueless and compromised Boston Globe reporter Lisa Wangsness wrote an egregious puff piece on him in May 2013, right after the Boston Marathon jihad murders perpetrated by two […]
Apr 11, 2014 07:22 pm | Robert SpencerBoko Haram’s real name is the Party of the People of the Sunnah for Dawah and Jihad. In other words, it explains and justifies its activities specifically by reference to Islamic doctrine. Its name Boko Haram means “Western education is sin,” or “Books bad,” and stems from the idea that a Western education is a […]
Apr 11, 2014 07:06 pm | Robert SpencerI am only in the last few minutes of this long mp3. I’m still in Nebraska, speaking in Lincoln in about an hour. This morning I was driving from Omaha to Lincoln with Dr. Mark Christian and others, and we were listening to Scott Voorhees’s show on Omaha’s KFAB as he spoke with a wide […]
Apr 11, 2014 10:49 am | Robert Spencer“We need to make our universities temples not of dogmatic orthodoxy, but of truly critical thinking, where all ideas are welcome and where civil debate is encouraged.” Indeed. But instead, they are dreary factories of conformity, where a spurious “diversity” of everything except thought and ideas is celebrated. And thuggish individuals and groups with ties […]
Michael Coren: Brandeis cancellation of Hirsi Ali “yet another example of liberal cowardice and hypocrisy”
Apr 11, 2014 10:37 am | Robert SpencerThe academics are in terror and full submission mode. It is “bigotry” and “hatred” to tell the truth about jihad terror and Islamic supremacism. The freedom of speech is everywhere in retreat, while most Americans are too distracted, lazy, or unaware of the implications to notice or care. This scenario is a recipe for authoritarianism […]
Apr 11, 2014 10:06 am | Robert SpencerWe are constantly told in the West that Islam rightly understood teaches peace and tolerance, and that jihad terrorists are not Muslims, but criminals, who are twisting and hijacking their religion’s true, peaceful teachings. If that were true, however, then the last people whom one would expect to get involved in jihad terror plots would […]
Apr 11, 2014 09:55 am | Robert SpencerThis morning I was on Peter Boyles’s show on KNUS Denver to discuss Hamas-linked CAIR’s war on the freedom of speech and the craven capitulation of Brandeis University to these Islamic supremacist fascists.
Apr 11, 2014 09:45 am | Robert SpencerHamas-linked CAIR guns for anyone and everyone who dares to utter the slightest critical word about jihad terror and Islamic supremacist. This includes even ex-Muslims such as Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the latest head they’ve added to their collection, and this professor, Samir Amin Abdellatif, who is the publisher of a book by another ex-Muslim, Sami […]
Apr 11, 2014 09:17 am | Robert SpencerLast night on my regular weekly appearance on Michael Coren’s Sun TV show, I discussed the cowardice of Brandeis University in dropping an honorary degree for Ayaan Hirsi Ali under pressure from the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations. Guest-hosting for Michael was Faith Goldy. Video courtesy AlohaSnackbar01.
Apr 11, 2014 08:25 am | Robert SpencerThe “guide for journalists” about which I previously posted here tells outright lies about Islam, as is detailed below. It says, for example, that “in the Quran, men and women are equal,” when actually it says, “Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other…” (4:34) […]
Apr 11, 2014 07:58 am | Robert SpencerAt Breitbart today I discuss the new report that supposedly exonerates the FBI from its many failures in the lead-up to the Boston Marathon jihad bombing, and show that it actually does anything but exonerate the bureau: The New York Times revealed Wednesday that “the Russian government declined to provide the F.B.I. with information about one of […]
Apr 11, 2014 07:35 am | Robert SpencerAbu Azmi repeatedly emphasizes that what he is saying is simply Islamic teaching, and he will not speak against Islam. Does he have a case? Well, Qur’an 24:4 and 24:13 stipulate that sexual crimes can only be established by the testimony of four male Muslim witnesses. Those verses, according to Islamic tradition, are a result […]
Apr 11, 2014 07:20 am | Robert Spencer“Extremists may elect to use conventional or non-conventional weapons, and target both official and private interests. Examples of such targets include high-profile sporting events, residential areas, business offices, hotels, clubs, restaurants, places of worship, schools, public areas, shopping malls, and other tourist destinations both in the United States and abroad where U.S. citizens gather in […]
Apr 11, 2014 07:06 am | Raymond IbrahimYesterday on Haya TV, Nabil Na‘im, a former leader of Egypt’s Islamic Jihad and close confidante of current al-Qaeda leader, Ayman Zawahiri—who also helped found Egypt’s Islamic Jihad—asserted that, during the reign of former president Muhammad Morsi, Zawahiri was given $25 million from Muslim Brotherhood leader Khairat al-Shatter to organize, fund, and assemble the jihadi […]
Apr 11, 2014 07:04 am | Raymond IbrahimI was recently involved in an interesting exercise—examining taqiyya about taqiyya—and believe readers might profit from the same exercise, as it exposes all the subtle apologetics made in defense of the Islamic doctrine, which permits Muslims to lie to non-Muslims, or “infidels.” Context: Khurrum Awan, a lawyer, is suing Ezra Levant, a Canadian media personality and author, […]
