    The NYPD revealed in a press conference on Friday that Zale Thompson, the hatchet-weilding lone Muslim terrorist who attempted to ax four police officers to death in a Queens, New York subway on Thursday had several prior arrests in Oxnard, California and was released. Thompson converted to Islam recently and praised Jihad over social media. His apparent Facebook profile picture is the image of a Muslim warrior and the background image is of an Islamic verse, presumably from the Qur'an. The Facebook page says he graduated from Columbia University's Teacher's College.

    A traffic incident in Jerusalem. Another traffic incident in Canada just a few days ago. Odd coincidence: both drivers were devout Muslims who killed Infidels “in the name of Allah” (as the Canadian bad driver put it). Meanwhile, also in Canada, a mentally ill man shoots up the Parliament building and murders a soldier. And in New York City, a man wielding a hatchet injures several police officers. Another odd coincidence: both the Canadian mentally ill man and the New York hatchet-wielder were also devout Muslims. The father of the former waged jihad in Libya, and the latter called for...

    Security: In a country with strict gun control and without a Second Amendment, an armed citizen stopped a terrorist attack as our neighbor to the north becomes a jihadi target. When Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, aka Michael Hall, was shot dead by Kevin Vickers, the House of Commons sergeant-at-arms, the jihadist wannabe and Muslim convert had already murdered Corporal Nathan Cirillo, a guard at Canada's National War Memorial, and was inside Canada's Parliament building, very near a room where Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper was meeting with members of his Conservative Party.

    Zale Thompson, a Muslim man with quotes from the Quran all over his Facebook page and who attacked an NYPD officer with a hatchet, was not a radical Muslim, but instead was "just an angry guy," according to a new article by ABC. Thompson also wrote on Facebook (emphasis mine), "America's military is strong abroad, but they have never faced an internal mass revolt. They are weaker at home. We are scattered and decentralized, we can use this as an advantage. They are centralized and strong, which can be exploited as a weakness. Think of a swarm of bees (negroes)...

    A hatchet-wielding attacker charged a group of New York City police officers posing for a photograph on Thursday, wounded two, one critically, before the assailant was shot dead, police said. The officers were on foot patrol when they were asked by a freelance photographer to pose for a picture on a Queens street at about 2 p.m., a New York Police Department spokesman said. Suddenly a man carrying a hatchet charged the officers, swinging it and striking one officer in the right arm and then swinging it again and striking a second officer in the head, the spokesman said.

    Canada has experienced two murderous jihad terror attacks in the last three days, not long after the Islamic State called for such attacks – but the denial and obfuscation are as thick as ever. [SNIP] In reality, what motivated him was blazingly obvious, but it was the one thing most Western government officials and all of the mainstream media have determined to ignore, and so the search was one for some other remotely plausible motive that could be sold to a public that is increasingly suspicious of what the government and media elites are telling them.

    "The View" co-host Rosie O'Donnell is drawing criticism online for remarks about Wednesday's deadly shooting in Ottawa. Thursday's episode of the chat show kicked off with the panellists discussing the attack on Parliament Hill and the killing of Cpl.

The Ottawa shootings came just two days after two Canadian soldiers were run over — one of them fatally — in Quebec by a man with jihadist sympathies. As "The View" panellists discussed whether Wednesday's shootings were an act of terrorism, O'Donnell said "most of these shooters have...

How could condemning ISIS possibly be offensive? Author Eli Talbert, a Pitt columnist, explains in a piece called "Why Condemning ISIS is Offensive." He begins by saying that ISIS "might also be a concern," but what is much, much more "disturbing," according to Talbert? Moderate Muslims denouncing the terrorist group. First, he cites President Obama's call for Muslims to denounce ISIS as an example of "thinly disguised Islamophobia." Talbert retorts that expecting any Muslim...

The captured M198's reportedly cost $500,000 per piece. To add insult to injury, the Islamists have also seized 1,500 up-armored Humvees which cost the American taxpayer $220,000 each.

    Militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) could turn themselves into Ebola “suicide bombers” against the Western world, terrorism experts have warned. ISIS or other terrorist groups could simply dispatch individuals to Ebola-infected areas in West Africa where they would intentionally infect themselves and then spread the virus through the world’s air transportation network. Capt.

    Warwick’s police chief says a threat to elementary school students in three communities mentioned beheading. Col. Steven McCartney tells WPRO-AM that the threat specified that “beheading is planned.” He called the nature of the threat targeting children in Warwick, Cranston and Johnston chilling. “There was a specific mention of elementary schools in this letter, the other thing which was the specific type of threat, which was beheading, is planned,” McCartney told WPRO. Johnston police received the anonymous threat by mail on Tuesday. Police say officers will be at every school in Johnston, Cranston and Warwick through Friday. Several parents said...

    War On Terror: Though they've given material assistance to terrorists by fighting for the Islamic State, which is a federal crime, the FBI director says American jihadis are "entitled" to come home and move about freely. FBI Director James Comey told Scott Pelley on CBS' "60 Minutes" Sunday that we know who the dozen or so Americans fighting with the Islamic State are, but we can't do much more than follow them around if they decide to return to the U.S. In the aftermath of 9/11, and in the face of IS atrocities and threats, this is an appalling statement....

    The U.S. State Department endorsed on Wednesday a controversial anti-terror handbook published by Canada’s Muslim community that refers to jihad as “noble” and urges law enforcement to avoid using terms such as “Islamic extremism.” The handbook, published earlier this month by two Canadian Muslim community organizations, was so controversial that the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) flatly rejected the manual and ordered its officers not to use it. Yet the State Department’s official anti-terrorism Twitter feed, called Think Again Turn Away, appeared to endorse the controversial handbook on Twitter and linked to a positive article about it.

    War On Terror: While hitting a truck here or a tank there, the administration blows another chance to shatter Islamic State forces in open country as they plant their black flags on NATO's doorstep in the Kurdish city of Kobani. One of the benefits of being a superpower is that you have super power. But power is effective only if you use it, something President Obama is loathe to do. We have commented before on the administration's video-game air campaign against ISIS, designed to score points with the electorate even as ISIS relentlessly advances. CNN reports that over the weekend...
  • Catholic professor from Pope's university: Islamic State is not heresy

    "Where is the border between Islam and Islamism? The media says that the two are different as night and day; Islam is a religion of peace, and the Islamists have stolen the name. Others believe that Islamism represents the traditional, pure Islam, true to the Koran. This latter view is advanced, remarkably enough, by a theologian Martin Rhonheimer from a university endorsed by the Pope. He is a professor at the Pontifical Santa Croce University in Rome and wrote an essay on this particular distinction in the Neue Zürcher Zeitung.
