    Transnational liberalism breeds resentments and anxieties that are only beginning to surface across the developed world. Paris Last Sunday President Trump stood before Muslim leaders in Riyadh and declared: “America is a sovereign nation, and our first priority is always the safety and security of our citizens. We are not here to lecture. We are not here to tell other people how to live, what to do, who to be, or how to worship.” Amid the journalistic uproar that greets nearly everything Mr. Trump says, few noted the connection he made between these two concepts: We are sovereign, and we...

    The prime minister of Poland has launched a blistering attack on the “political elites” of Europe in the wake of the Manchester terror attack, warning the continent must put in place “strong politicians” willing to tackle the threat or risk “crying over your children”. Speaking in the Polish Parliament on Wednesday, Beata Szydło seized the moment to launch an excoriating attack on European Union leaders following the Manchester attack which, among others, claimed the lives of a Polish couple, leaving their two daughters as orphans. “We are not going to take part in the madness of the Brussels elite,” she...

    Can a Western welfare state defend itself against Islamic terrorism? Perhaps, but it will require fundamental changes. The Telegraph reports that last week’s terrorist attack in Manchester was funded by the British government:The Manchester suicide bomber used taxpayer-funded student loans and benefits to bankroll the terror plot, police believe.Salman Abedi is understood to have received thousands of pounds in state funding in the run up to Monday’s atrocity even while he was overseas receiving bomb-making training. Why? What qualified a terrorist in training for state aid? I suppose the answer is, anyone can get state funding these days, no serious...

    The media can constantly repeat the whole Donald Trump-colluded-with-the-Russians thing hour after hour, despite not one drop of evidence, but when a documentary is produced that these same people don't like; a documentary based on a survey conducted by a reputable company, the channel that produced it caves to the predictable, name-calling, social media hysteria.

    In wake of Manchester explosion, some in state fear local attack was planned! The Manchester suicide bomber was reported to authorities repeatedly over a period of five years, as British citizens pointed out his radical activities. Nothing was done. It mirrors the script of previous jihadists who struck at San Bernardino, Orlando, Fort Hood, the Boston Marathon, London, Nice and many other places in the U.S. and Europe over the last three years. “We knew of this man,” police said, but they were either unwilling or unable to monitor the suspect, let alone arrest him. Now there are signs that...

    This echoes the double messaging the Muslim world employs when talking to the West and to the ummah (worldwide Muslim community. Much like the Saudi king during Trump’s visit to Riyadh or the Ground Zero mosque imam Rauf, Muslim leaders say one thing to naive, gullible Western leaders and Western media and quite another to their people. Counter Terrorism expert John Gaundaolo (who gave a rousing speech at our Sarsour Protest at CUNY yesterday) explains it: Saudi King Salman spoke at the summit yet he sent two messages: one for the muslims and one for the non-muslims. Americans and the...

    Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly on Friday said the terror threat is worse than most realize, saying some people would "never leave the house" if they knew the truth. “I was telling [Fox host] Steve [Doocy] on the way in here, if he knew what I knew about terrorism, he’d never leave the house in the morning,” Kelly said on “Fox & Friends.” He noted there were four major terror attacks in the last week — in England, Egypt, the Philippines and Indonesia — "by generally the same groups." “It’s everywhere. It’s constant. It’s nonstop. The good news for us...

    Ten masked gunmen, who used machine guns, opened fire at two buses carrying Egyptian Coptic Christians to a monastery south of Cairo on Friday, killing 26 including children and injuring 26 others, Al Arabiya News Channel reported. The Christian group was travelling in two buses and a truck through the province, which is home to a sizeable Christian minority, the governor of Egypt’s Minya province, Essam al-Bedaiwy, said. The health ministry said there were between eight and 10 attackers dressed in military uniforms, according to witnesses. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, which came on the eve of...

    Authorities released a report Thursday detailing the manhunt and shootout with a husband and wife who killed 14 people and wounded 22 others in the San Bernardino attack in December 2015. The report released by the San Bernardino County district attorney’s office includes the accounts of nearly two dozen law enforcement officers and details how officers identified Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, who carried out the attack with high-powered rifles at a health department training event and holiday party in December 2015, and the gunfight that ensued after officers tried to stop the fleeing couple.

    It’s been said, “The ‘good, moderate Muslim,’ is the one who holds you down, while the other, ones cut your head off.” It seems that the “moderate Muslim” is the one who quietly hopes or cheers for you die. He or she seems to never disavow even the bloodiest murders, or shouts of, “Death To America.” This Silence Of The Muslims is drowning them…like a boiling sea collapsing down and all around them. You pointy-headed, “Western,” elite morons: “terrorism is not Islam,” as you often whine. But the terrorists often seem to all be Muslims.

I welcome the differences of my neighbor. The wish of terrorism is to take away that feeling of freedom and joy. No....

    I am writing this article today just after we, members of the Dutch Parliament, in the presence of the British Ambassador, commemorated the Manchester victims with a short speech by our Prime Minister and one minute of silence. Two months ago, we did the same for the victims in Stockholm. Last December, for those in Berlin. And, earlier, for those in Nice, Brussels, Paris, Copenhagen… The list becomes endless, while the number of Western ambassadors, who have not visited our Parliament for one of these sad occasions, becomes ever smaller. And, every time, we hear the same hollow words of...

    In his speech in Saudi Arabia, President Trump called on his Muslim audience to unite “in pursuing the one goal that transcends every other consideration. That goal is to meet history’s great test — to conquer extremism and vanquish the forces of terrorism.” That challenge could have been drama enough for the occasion, but Trump didn’t stop there. He went on to frame the great test as a “battle between good and evil.” As if to concede the point, evil responded quickly with the savage attack in Manchester, England, targeting innocent children and teenagers, most of them girls, with a...

    Reflections on the War on Terror, in light of the Manchester Arena Bombing On Sunday, May 22, 2017, President Trump and King Salman of Saudi Arabia addressed a gathering of the political leadership of some 50 muslim-majority nations… and on Monday, May 23, an ISIS-inspired jihadist detonated a nail bomb in Manchester, England after a concert, killing over twenty innocents, injuring sixty more. Whether intended to be a response or not, this terrorist attack at the Manchester Arena must be directly assessed in light of King Salman's speech yesterday in Saudi Arabia… because it hammers home the special challenge of...

    A terror attack in the United Kingdom May 23 killed at least 22, and injured dozens more. As the attack targeted a youth pop concert, a high proportion of the deaths were among children and teenagers. United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May immediately cancelled all her ruling Tory Party’s campaign events — national elections are June 8 — so her government could focus on the crisis. The country’s other parties quickly followed suit. As of yesterday, the Tories had this election locked up to the degree that a generational shift in UK politics was in the offing. If the polls...

Focus instead on something that can be fixed - the three most significant flaws in the civilized world’s approach to fighting Islamic jihad:Surveillance/Information Overload: not only is it dysfunctional, it’s illegal. Treating the fight against Islamic jihad as law enforcement rather than war: the rules of engagement are entirely different. Failure to understand the motivations and intent of Islamic terrorists: remain willfully ignorant at your own peril. Fox News may be headed down the rabbit...

May said members of the armed forces would be positioned at key sites to free up police for patrols and military personnel might be deployed at public events such as concerts and sports events as a further attack was seen as potentially imminent. May said...
