    EU countries are lining up in opposition to German Chancellor Angela Merkel's open door refugee policy with some countries closing their borders and others establishing strict border controls to try and slow the flood of refugees. Not Merkel. The German leader is defiantly standing by her policy despite the Paris attacks, even though her position is putting enormous strain on her government coalition.

    Sen. Jeff Sessions is out with a list of 15 vetted refugees who quickly joined jihad plots to attack the United States. He’s spotlighting the refugees-turned-jihadis because he’s trying to prod GOP leaders into halting Congress’ normal practice of giving the president huge leeway to import foreign migrants and refugees into the United States. Liban Haji Mohamed providing material support to Harakat Shabaab Al-Mujahidin, also known as Al-Shabaab and Al-Qaeda Abdinassir Mohamud Ibrahim sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for conspiring to provide material support to Al-Shabaab Abdullah Ramo Pazara left the United States to go to Syria and...

    As millions of Americans prepare to travel for the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday, the State Department warned that potential attackers could target private or government interests. "Authorities believe the likelihood of terror attacks will continue as members of (Islamic State) return from Syria and Iraq," it said. "Additionally, there is a continuing threat from unaffiliated persons planning attacks inspired by major terrorist organizations but conducted on an individual basis."

  • No, Donald Trump Doesn't Want to Register All American Muslims. It's Just Another Media Smear.

    The New York Times, Trump endorsed the idea of registering all Muslims in the United States with the government. There’s only one problem: he didn’t. To understand what Trump actually said, it’s necessary to understand that Trump is essentially a Magic 8 ball when it comes to answering media questions without full information. Trump’s 2016 slogan is “Make America Great Again,” but his secondary slogan could be, “Wing It With The Donald.” His go-to answer when he’s asked questions about topics he doesn’t really get is something along the lines of, “We’re going to have to look at that.” With...

    Liberals claim that Donald Trump is considering creating a database to keep track of Muslim Americans. Not exactly true. Donald Trump "would certainly implement" a database system tracking Muslims in the United States, the Republican front-runner told NBC News on Thursday night. "I would certainly implement that. Absolutely," Trump said in Newton, Iowa, in between campaign town halls. But that's not exactly what transpired. Breitbart has it more accurately. NBC News’ Vaughn Hillyard confronts Trump: “Should there be a database system that tracks the Muslims here in this country?” Trump replies: “There should be a lot of systems, beyond databases. We...

    President Obama said Thursday that Syrian refugees are no more dangerous to the U.S. than tourists, and he accused Republican presidential candidates of stoking fears about the refugees and closing the Guantanamo Bay terrorist detention center to score political points. Speaking to reporters at a summit in the Philippines, Mr. Obama said the “overwhelming numbers” of Syrians who are applying for entry to the U.S. “are children, women, families — themselves victims of terrorism.” He said they are already subject to rigorous vetting by U.S. security officials. “The idea that somehow they pose a more significant threat than all the...

    The bombing of a Russian passenger jet over the Sinai was most probably the end result of a stealth jihad operation. That might seem like a strange way of putting it, because we usually think of stealth jihad as something that radical Muslims do to subvert non-Muslim societies. Yet, unless there were already a stealth network in place, its unlikely that an ISIS operative would have been able to get by security and place a bomb on board the Russian plane. Although ISIS has taken credit for the bombing, they probably did so with the help of another group -...

Normally, if someone wants to come into the United States, say, from France or Germany, our government can check with the French or German government to see if this person has a criminal record, or even is who he says he is. But when it comes to refugees from Syria, what is called "vetting" relies mostly on one source of information: the refugee. The UNHCR referral...

'I don't think they're gaining strength,' Obama had said of the terrorist organization on Good Morning America.

Almost everyone had expected an attack but most still hoped it would never come. Now they are all asking why it did.It happened because the Islamic State, the latest version of the Islamo-apocalypytic movement, has decided that Western democracies, representing the “Infidel” world, are no longer prepared to fight even to preserve their comfortable lives. The Paris attacks came on the first day of the Muslim lunar month of Safar, which coincides with the anniversary of Prophet...

    In Islamist terrorism we face a violent and highly contagious madness that believes the killing of civilians is a moral act. Whatever this is, it is not a clash of civilizations. The concept of "civilization" scarcely comes into it. Nor is it a struggle between competing sets of values, or a religious war, or a battle with an alien culture. There is no debate here - as there was in the Cold War - about how it is best for men to live: the enemy has stated explicitly that it does not revere life at all. On the contrary, it...

    One of the more interesting aspects of this flood of human misery is that it is not entirely spontaneous. Jihadi groups are doing their best to encourage it. ... That would not be surprising. In 2004 Europe agreed to pay Muhammar Gaddafi four billion pounds a year in exchange for a promise to halt people smuggling to Europe. Experts have also drawn links between the massive rise in would-be migrants and a so-called deal in the desert struck by Tony Blair in 2004 which saw the late Muammar Gaddafi agree to crack down on human traffickers as well as...

    Whats THE biggest media myth to come out of the Iraq? War and its messy aftermath? Forget Maureen Dowds attempt to trash George W. Bush by altering the presidents words. That kind of "journalism" has become just standard operating procedure at the New York Times. (" All the News Fit to Distort") No, for sheer, long-lasting stamina, we nominate the urban legend about the pillaging of Baghdads archaeological museum. Remember how it was supposed to have been emptied by looters? It was THE RAPE OF CIVILIZATION! The anguished comments from distinguished archaeologists sounded more like tabloid headlines. The Death of...

    An Islamist preacher from Kuwait called for the demolition of the Giza pyramids and Sphinx "to put an end to idolatry and the worship of such pagan constructions." "The fact that early Muslims did not destroy the pharaohs' legacy upon the Arab conquest of Egypt does not mean that we shouldn't do it now," preacher Ibrahim al-Kandari was quoted by the Kuwaiti Al-Watan daily newspaper Tuesday. The call echoes that of leader of Islamic State (IS) group Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who described the destruction of the historic monuments and archaeological sites as a "religious duty," Al-Ahram reported.

But only recently, after the discovery of life-size human statues and the unearthed columns,...
