    Whether Islam will eventually be reformed is an open question. The topic is much discussed by Muslims, a few of whom favor reformation and more of whom oppose it. The issue is important for America, and indeed the free world in general. There is little that non-Muslims can do to assist a reformation beyond recognizing the substantial differences between moderate and radical (mainstream) Muslims, supporting the former and purging the latter. Please don't conflate the cops with the killers.

    See, a uniform is supposed to be uniform. It is supposed to convey the idea that all those who wear it are engaged in a common enterprise that is greater than their individual proclivities. To allow Muslim cadets wear hijabs would be to deny the very nature and purpose of the uniform itself, and to allow an expression of the assertion that the cadet’s allegiance to Islam is greater than her allegiance to the Citadel or the U.S. military, which is doubtless true, but not something that the Citadel or the U.S. military ought to be in the business of...

    With Islamic terrorism on the rise in the United States and Western Europe, it’s worth mentioning that the Obama administration issued around 680,000 green cards to foreigners from Muslim countries during a five-year period, according to data published by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The stats, the latest made available by DHS, also show that the U.S. government admits more than double the number of immigrants from Muslim nations than from the European Union. This disturbing information was circulated by the Senate Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee on Immigration, which assesses that if there’s no change in the current policy, the...

Although attacks in the United States are less frequent due, in part, to our distance from the region, increasingly, leaders associated with terrorist groups are now finding their way onto American soil. Not only must we be concerned about terrorist cells hiding in communities around the United States, but we now also have to worry about domestic Muslim...

    Jacob Bender, the non-Muslim Useful Idiot who heads up Hamas-linked CAIR's Philadelphia chapter, here boasts: "What CAIR can do, however, and what it has been doing superbly for 10 years now, is to oppose the anti-Muslim ideology of the Trumps, the Cruzs, the Pamela Gellers, the Robert Spencers..." Notice that he doesn't say that Hamas-linked CAIR is opposing the ideology of the Syed Rizwan Farooks, the Mohammed Abdulazeezes, the Dzhokhar Tsarnaevs, the Nidal Malik Hasans. As for those he does mention, Hamas-linked CAIR is opposing us so superbly that Trump actually has a chance to become President of the United...

    Leaders with CAIR-Oklahoma say they're worried about participants safety. Organizers say it's supposed to be a special day for Muslims to take part in their local government, but instead they're fighting hate speech and threats. . . "...And I want our fellow Oklahomans to know that our religion is one of peace, and love, of mercy and compassion," said Soltani.

    Greg Nash Three-fourths of Republicans participating in Saturday's South Carolina GOP primary say they support presidential hopeful Donald Trump's proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the U.S., according to an exit poll. A CBS News exit poll of Palmetto State primary voters found that 75 percent said they support Trump's proposal, while 23 percent said they oppose it. Just days after the terrorist attack in San Bernardino, Calif. - the worst on U.S. soil since 9/11 - Trump sparked a media backlash for saying that all Muslims should be temporarily banned from entering the country. The proposal has...

    Video at link. The nation's top intelligence official confirmed Tuesday that the Islamic State has succeeded in making and deploying chemical agents in Iraq and Syria -- calling it the first such attack by an extremist group in more than two decades. The confirmation of mustard gas use came during Director of National Intelligence James Clapper's testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee, where he spoke to the Islamic State's growing sophistication online and in the battlefield. He did not elaborate on where and when the chemical attacks occurred, though there has been mounting evidence the terror group was experimenting...

    The top U.S. intelligence official said Tuesday that ISIS was likely to attempt direct attacks on the U.S. in the coming year and that the group was infiltrating refugees escaping from Iraq and Syria to move across borders. James Clapper, the director of National Intelligence, estimated that violent extremists were active in about 40 countries and that there currently exist more terrorist safe havens "than at any time in history." Testifying on global threats at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, Clapper warned that ISIS and its eight branches were the No. 1 terrorist threat, and that it was using...

    The Iowa Democratic caucus which I've already described as akin to the Marxist Zimbabwe Farmers-workers confabs is over, and it appears -- as Mark Steyn ably notes -- "almost certain" that Hillary Clinton did not win it. If Iowa were one of those banana republics in which the president-for-life has been prevailed upon to hold an election and Jimmy Carter and a bunch of UN observers had flown in to certify it, none of the above would pass muster. But in the Democrat Party it does:[snip] In effect, Hillary and Bernie fought Iowa to a draw. But a miss is...

    A top Senate Republican is warning that the federal Bureau of Prisons could be letting Muslim groups with terror ties vet chaplains and religious instructors, increasing the risk of indoctrination and radicalism behind bars. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, in a letter to the agency, flagged "recent revelations that the bureau enlisted an organization previously found to have ties to terrorist organizations" to screen potential Islamic chaplains. "It is imperative that the BOP take every measure possible to ensure the safety of its personnel within federal prisons and take all reasonable measures to ensure that Islamic extremism is...

    Islam teaches that Christians and Muslims worship the same god, the head of The Center on American-Islamic Relations wrote last week in defense of a suspended Wheaton College professor who asserted that notion on Facebook in December. In an op-ed condemning the Illinois Evangelical higher education institution for suspending and attempting to fire political science professor Dr. Larycia Hawkins for asserting that Christians and Muslims worship the same deity, CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad argued that the school's belief that the two religions don't worship the same God displays a level of "ignorance." "It is clear that Wheaton College has...
