  • Greenfield: Syria is a Nation of Terrorist Supporters

    Syrians are a Nation of Terrorist Supporters 10,000 Syrian refugees mean 1,300 ISIS supporters. November 24, 2015 Daniel Greenfield 4927 Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. Syria is a terror state. It didn’t become that way overnight because of the Arab Spring or the Iraq War. Its people are not the victims of American foreign policy, Islamic militancy or any of the other fashionable excuses. They supported Islamic terrorism. Millions of them still do. They are not the Jews fleeing a Nazi Holocaust. They are the Nazis...

    The Intellectual Conservative ^ | 11/23/15 | Mark Musser
    In the opening chapters of “Black Earth: The Holocaust as History and Warning,” Yale professor Timothy Snyder forcefully acknowledged what he calls the “ecological” Anti-Semitism of the Fuhrer, “An instructive account of the mass murder of the Jews of Europe must be planetary, because Hitler’s thought was ecological, treating Jews as a wound of nature.” In spite of such an assertion, however, the great caveat of Snyder’s book is he inexplicably fails to discuss the Nazi ecological historical record that should have informed his thesis ...

    While many speak of "Islamo-Fascism" these days, they do not really seem to take the history between Fascism and Islam very seriously. Many pundits like to use the term "Islamo-Fascism" as a political metaphor, but strangely, they have far less interest in actually connecting the dots historically. Yet the actual historical connections between Muslims, Germany, Fascism, Nazism and Neo-Nazism runs deep. This is a very serious omission and overlooked area with regard to the so-called war on terror ...
  • Islam Finally Puts The West, Civilization Itself On Trial And Emerges Victorious

    Islam has been on the defensive without ever responding to the vile accusations against beliefs and practices that have been deemed Satanic. But finally, they have fought back, this time uncharacteristically merely by rote. They have finally gotten the chance to explore history by getting information out of a decidedly unfamiliar source notwithstanding the UN's annual report for the past five years of only 2% literacy rate within the Arab/Muslim world. They have made a combined list of all of the West's violence and have come away quite pleased with themselves for the civilized manner in which they compare themselves...

    A vast and historically valuable trove of Holocaust-era documents, long thought destroyed during the second world war, has been found hidden in a wall cavity by a couple renovating their Budapest apartment. The haul of 6,300 documents are from a 1944 census that was a precursor to the intended liquidation of the Hungarian capital’s 200,000 Jews in Nazi death camps. Brigitte Berdefy, co-owner of the apartment overlooking Hungary’s parliament, said in August a worker detected paper after jamming a screwdriver through a crack in the wall....

    Dan Miller's Blog ^ | November 21, 2015 | Dan Miller
    In largely secular western societies, Islam and its history are viewed by many non-Muslims as substantially irrelevant to how devout Muslims behave. Perhaps the view that religion is of little importance to devout Muslims is based on the role, minor if any, that religion and religious history play in their own secular lives. However, both Islamic teachings and history give devout Muslims their grounding in Islam and teach them that Islam is the religion of war, not peace: Islam must become the world's only religion by extirpating all others.Islam was founded by Mohamed ( c. 570 CE – 8 June 632 CE) in the sixth...

    Islamic attitudes toward non-Muslims are determined by many factors of which two are most necessary to consider. The first is Jihad or Holy War. The second is the concept of Dar Al Harb (Arabic for "House of War") and Dar Al Islam ("House of Submission") in Islamic tradition. "House of War" refers to any territory or people who are not living in submission to Islam. "House of Submission," or Dar Al Islam, refers to any territory or people living in submission to the message of Muhammad. The concept of Jihad (Arabic for Struggle) has been given two interpretations, which...

    Once a Muslim like Obama rules a country it falls under the Islamic concept of religious conquest of the infidel aka fatih and is to be forever ruled by a Muslim or to be retaken in jihad if need be. As soon as Obama became president, in the eyes of the "Ummah" (Muslim community) the USA is "fatih" (conquered) and the non Muslims dhimmis of that land to be enslaved as the Muslims see fit. If it falls out of the hands of Muslims then a jihad needs to be waged till it returns to Muslim rule. As soon as...

    The Battle of Leyte Gulf was the biggest and most multifaceted naval battle in history. It involved hundreds of ships, nearly 200,000 participants, and spanned more than 100,000 square miles. Some of the largest and most powerful ships ever built were sunk, and thousands of men went to the bottom of the sea with them. Every facet of naval warfare—air, surface, subsurface, and amphibious—was involved in this great struggle, and the weapons used included bombs of every type, guns of every caliber, torpedoes, mines, rockets, and even a forerunner of the modern guided missile. But more than mere size...

The perpetrators of violence are measured in the thousands, but the greatest abuse is at the hands of those who should demand that the violence stop. The silence in the face this persecution is denial and justification. The persecutors are few, but the deniers...

    The Paris jihad murders brought to memory the late Dutch politician Pim Fortuyn killed by a leftist Muslim sympathizer. It has always been thought that his killer (who was not a Muslim, but a leftist commie) maybe acted on behalf of the mainstream parties because they feared Fortuyn. Fortuyn was not an easily dismissed right winger. He was an educated scholar who was openly gay and at the same time was against multiculturalism, open borders immigration and against Islamism. He called Islam "a backward culture", and was quoted as saying that if it were legally possible, he would close the...

    Half- hearted measures rarely if ever succeed. More times than not they make situations worse because they waste time and energy that could be used to actually achieve our goal. Anyone who has considered the problem of illegal immigration is familiar with the half-hearted phrases “comprehensive immigration reform” and its companion “secure the border.” Thanks to Barack Obama’s cavalier attitude toward our safety and well-being we can clearly see that “secure the border” is an empty phrase. It was coined by clever politicians of both Parties to anesthetize us into thinking there is a real effort to shut down our...

    Monday, November 02, 2015 Our Insecure Culture Warriors Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog Culture War 2.0 is as inescapable as it is obnoxious. Its loudest proponents, the Social Justice Warriors, live off a drama that they create, playing enlightened victim-activists fighting micro-struggles against micro-aggressions in areas most people have never even thought about. The issues are ideological, but they're mainstreamed by focusing on personal narratives. The victim-activists are usually millennials from wealthy families with useless degrees. It's a story as old as radicalism, but in the dawn of the 21st century, it's activism and culture war...

    It is up to Israel to display the wit and the will to resist this European pressure, because the Europeans, as with much of what they are doing to themselves and to us, are simply wrong As a million anti-Semitic, anti-Zionist migrants flood Europe they find a host continent in support of their anti-Israel passion. As Jews commemorate Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass, when Nazi brown-shirts burnt Jewish books, burnt down synagogues with Jews inside, and led a boycott against Jewish businesses; European politicians are drafting a plan to stick another Yellow Star on Jewish products from Judea &...

    Our great nation was founded by men filled with integrity and honor who were willing to sacrifice not only their fortune but their lives. They were compelled to leave their homes and careers to help guide our new nation into a direction that would demand restraints upon the government’s role in the lives of the people. They fought to establish a republic that would grant limited power to a federal government, because they understand that any government with central power is a corrupt government. These great patriots understood that absolute power corrupts and a best form of government was best...

    “Who did you vote for in the last election?” a senior female colleague asked me when I first entered the English Department of a Chicago area community college! Thankfully, in this case, I just had received tenure, because had I not, I very well would have been drummed out of their University of Chicago ghetto of political correctness when that crap all started, way back in the late 1960’s. “We don’t teach that any more. . .that’s old fashioned,” a minority female professor told me late in my teaching career. Horror of horrors, I still required my students to spell...

    In a time where college students are offended by pretty much everything, The Federalist Papers reports that one professor at UNC-Wilmington decided to cut through the rhetoric and let his students know that they aren't the special snowflakes liberals and their parents would have them believe. His epic class introduction has gone viral, and for good reason: this is the most common sense lecture to come out of any college in a long time.
  • ALERT: Hammond Family Declared as Terrorist and Sentenced to Five Years in Federal Prison

    November 3, 2015 Re: Hammond Family Declared as Terrorist and Sentenced to Five Years in Federal Prison From: The Bundy Family Bunkerville, Nevada To: Aware Citizens & Government Officials Our hearts and prayers go out to the Hammond family with deep empathy. The magnitude of the injustices dealt to them is hard to comprehend. Their once happy lives have been forever darkened with pains of corruptions. The nature of their sentencing proves once again that justice is currently not found in the federal courts. The Hammonds are a simple ranching family that for generations has cared for the land...

    The US Didn’t Create ISIS -- Assad and Saddam Did Dictators pay a price for allying with Islamic terrorism November 4, 2015 Daniel Greenfield 314 Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. The Russia-Iran-Assad axis and its useful idiots in the West claim that the United States created ISIS. Some of the loonier conspiracy sites that gleefully repost Russian propaganda allege that the Caliph of ISIS is a Jewish Mossad agent named Elliot Shimon or a CIA agent named Simon Elliot. Elliot doesn’t exist, but ISIS’ Deputy Caliph...
  • Was Al Gore being stupid with the M-16 Rifle? Was he in Vietnam with it?

    This famous photograph of Al Gore, was supposedly posted on his web site when he was running for president in 1999. It has been floating about the Internet ever since. Many use it to mock Al Gore for his weapon handling skills, or lack thereof; but the weapon handling does not look too bad to me. There is no magazine in the rifle, so it is likely unloaded, even if the selector switch is on "semi" and not on safe. The muzzle, on close examination, seems to be pointing to the left (his left) of his head. He seems...

    The Simple Sabotage Field Manual, declassified in the 1970s. (Photo: Joe Loong/Flickr)When you think of Allied espionage, you might imagine disguised explosives, wiretaps, bat bombs, or other dramatic inventions. But declassified documents reveal that World War II was won in part by more everyday saboteurs–purposefully clumsy factory workers, annoying train conductors, and bad middle managers, all trained by the U.S.'s Simple Sabotage Field Manual.In 1944, World War II was in its final throes. Though the Allies were holding their own against the Axis, they were in need of more troops and more local cooperation. The Office of Strategic Services (OSS), a precursor...
