    “Without an honest confrontation, there is no healing.” That’s from Birth Of A Nation director-producer-star Nate Parker today onstage at the Sundance Film Festival. In what I have to say was one of the most emotional experiences I’ve had at a movie theater, Parker world premiered what he called his seven-year “passion project.” His telling of the early 19th century slave revolt led by Nat Turner had audience members crying in their seats and jumping to their feet in a prolonged standing ovation at the film’s conclusion.

Archaeologists who painstakingly examined the bones of some 26 men, women and children buried in the Stone Age grave site at Schoeneck-Kilianstaedten, near Frankfurt, say they found blunt force marks to the head, arrow wounds and deliberate efforts to smash at least half of the victims' shins either to stop them from running away or as a grim message to survivors.

    Reason ^ | 06/25/2015 | Jacob Sullum
    Citing unnamed "federal law enforcement officials," The New York Times reports that the Justice Department probably will file federal hate crime charges against Dylann Roof in connection with last week's massacre at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston. Since Roof already faces nine murder charges in state court, where he will be subject to the death penalty if convicted, an additional federal prosecution seems gratuitous. It does not even offer the prospect of a more severe punishment. To the contrary, the maximum penalty Roof would face under federal law is life in prison, while there is a distinct possibility that...

President Obama could have reacted to the recent events by not slyly mentioning how he plans on using it once again to incrementally destroying liberty. Rather than uniting the country and healing its wounds, we had the President using mass murder as just another opportunity to score political points for his socialist national agenda. This why President Obama will be considered THE WORST, bar none. Compare this President to those of the past who...

Our brothers and sisters in Christ are suffering, and need our prayers and support. Let’s start by spreading love rather than division. With that said, if I had to give one piece of advice to any politician, it would be that any argument starting off with “We don’t have all the facts” is one that should probably remain unspoken. Another piece of advice would be that gathering the relevant facts before speaking will avoid embarrassments like...

The Boston Massacre became a rallying cry for Patriot leaders like Samuel Adams, and the colonies teetered on the brink of insurrection for several days. Future President John Adams would later...

    The jihadist murderers are dead, after killing five more Parisians, but many Westerners, long drugged by bad ideas and received wisdom, continue to sleepwalk through the war against jihadism. This means that after all the brave words and feel-good marches, little significant action will be taken to prevent such atrocities from happening again. In the absence of clear thinking and recognition of fact, responses to this latest example of Muslim violence reflect ideological fever dreams. Nothing to do with the Muslim religion, as French president Franois Holland said of the attacks, is a perennial favorite. Such apologists invoke shopworn Marxist...

    What we are seeing in Jerusalem today is not simply Palestinian terrorism. It is Islamic jihad. No one likes to admit it. The television reporters insist that this is the worst possible scenario because there is no way to placate it. There is no way to reason with it. So what else is new? The horrible truth is that all of the anti-Jewish slaughters perpetrated by our Arab neighbors have been motivated to greater or lesser degrees by Islamic Jew-hatred. The only difference between the past hundred years and now is that today our appeasement-oriented elite is finding it harder...

    Israeli Jews took the streets on Thursday in support of Ashkelon Mayor Itamar Shimoni's decision to temporarily stop the employment of Arab construction workers on sites near schools citing security concerns, even as a debate raged as to the legality of the move. In Jerusalem, right-wing activists protested in front of the Rami Levy supermarket in the Givat Shaul neighborhood against the employment of Arab workers at the store. Givat Shaul is located adjacent to the Har Nof neighborhood where two Arab terrorists lethally attacked a synagogue on Tuesday with hatchets and guns, killing four Jews and a Druze police...

    CNN has apologized for one of several errors in its reporting of Tuesday morning's brutal terrorist attack in Jerusalem. In one particularly jarring error, the headline presented for the story broadcast live to tens of millions of viewers read: "Israeli... Police Shot, Killed 2 Palestinians." The headline sparked outrage, with one prominent Israeli activist calling for the CNN reporter responsible to have his press credentials removed. Several hours and countless angry responses later, the international news corporation finally apologized. "As CNN updated its reporting on the terrorist attack on the synagogue in Jerusalem earlier today, our coverage did not immediately...

After shelling Abu Hamam for days, ISIS forces once again captured the town and began systematically executing every Shaitat male over the age of 15.

    Seven hundred members of the al-Sheitaat tribe in Syria have been massacred by Islamic State forces, according to reports from the Syrian Human Rights Observatory.Many of the executions were beheadings. [SNIP] The Islamic State will never be defeated in Iraq until it is defeated in Syria. This has led to some bizarre suggestions.There are some real politik pundits who have suggested that we make an alliance with Syrian President Bashar Assad in order to defeat Islamic State. That's not going to happen, but it points up how desperate the situation is becoming for the Syrian opposition.They've been fighting Islamic State...

    Analysis: Islamic State advertises war crimes in video By Thomas Joscelyn July 29, 2014 The Islamic State, an al Qaeda offshoot that controls significant territory in both Iraq and Syria, has posted an extremely brutal video.

The Long War Journal is posting these images because they highlight the depravity of the Islamic State and its followers. The Islamic State likely believes that these images will help intimate its opposition into submission and earn new...

"The claim by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) that it has massacred 1,700 Iraqi Shi'ite air force recruits in Tikrit is horrifying and a true depiction of the bloodlust that these terrorists represent," U.S. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a statement on June 15. "While we cannot confirm these reports, one of the primary goals of ISIL is to set fear into the hearts...
