    A grainy and gruesome photo has fueled speculation that the infamous leader of the Nigerian terror group Boko Haram is dead, even as the African nation's army presses fighters in the northern territory and the fate of hundreds of hostages hangs in the balance. The military in neighboring Cameroon claims to have killed Abubakar Shekau, the warlord seen earlier this year in a monstrous video vowing to sell nearly 300 kidnapped schoolgirls, and even released a photo purportedly of his corpse. Nigerian security forces are trying to authenticate the report, and officials in the U.S., which has aided Nigeria's hunt...

    Anthony Weiner’s sexting scandal left his wife Huma Abedin’s role with Hillary Clinton in doubt. But one year later, Abedin's position as Clinton’s personal chief of staff remains intact, as well as her marriage to Weiner. ... As Clinton’s personal chief of staff, Abedin was constantly at her boss’ side as Clinton toured the country promoting her memoir, “Hard Choices,” over the summer. And there she was again last weekend, standing just behind Clinton as the former First Lady worked the rope line at an Iowa steak fry, a visit widely seen as the first concrete public step by Clinton...

    In 1565, Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent dominated the Mediterranean, with intentions of not only taking Sicily, Sardinia, Majorca, and southern Spain, but Rome itself. The only thing standing in his way was the small rocky island of Malta just south of Sicily, defended by the Knights of Malta. In March of 1565, Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent sent Algerian Admiral Dragut to Malta with 200 ships and 40,000 Muslim soldiers, including 6,500 elite Janissary troops. .... Queen Elizabeth I of England is said to have remarked: "If the Turks should prevail against the Isle of Malta, it is uncertain what further...

    >Stories are emerging from Christian communities in Iraq that are vaguely reminiscent of the plight of Jews in Nazi Germany. AINA, the Assyrian International News Agency, reported this week on a dozen Christians helped by a Muslim man in the north of Iraq who has helped Christians escape areas controlled by the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL. Those familiar with the history of the Holocaust may be reminded of anti-Nazi Christians who hid Jews and helped them escape persecution. The AINA story details the plight of 12 Assyrian Christians who failed to leave their town of...

    Most Americans are unaware that under the “Refugee Resettlement Program,” whole Muslim communities from hostile nations are imported into the United States, circumventing whatever immigration laws that are still intact. This is made even more dangerous by what organization determines who is are refugees and who aren’t. It’s the UN, driven largely by the world’s largest international body, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). The OIC is a modern day caliphate made up of 56 countries and the Palestinian terrorists. For years, a handful of my colleagues and I have warned of the reckless immigration polices here in America and...

    Displaced Syrians will likely make up the next big wave of Muslim refugees coming to America. Since the early 1990s, the United Nations high commissioner for refugees has selected more than 200,000 refugees from Islamic countries to be resettled in the United States. Most of them have come from Somalia and Iraq. Syria could soon be added to the mix in the midst of that country’s brutal civil war. The Obama administration has been greasing the skids for the Syrian refugees for months, WND has learned, and the refugees will soon be dumped on American cities throughout the U.S. In...

    As you may have heard previously (if you live in the West), Muslim inbreeding is a HUGE problem that nobody in the Islamic world has had the courage to confront -or even acknowledge- due to it's outright endorsement by Muhammed, who led-by-example and married his own first cousin. But the (ongoing) genetic damage to the offspring in such marriages is severe... and naturally, getting worse within any society in which this nonsense is allowed to continue. Of course, the practice of first-cousin-or-closer marriage is banned in civilized, Judeo-Christian countries, as it has been since the days of Moses. Conversely, it was sanctioned...

The raid was the latest incident of a swingeing crackdown on religious minorities in Saudi Arabia by the country's hard-line Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice. The 28 Christians were said to be worshipping at the home of an Indian national in the eastern city of Khafji, when the police entered the building and took them into custody.

    “Using the group’s preferred name could help it radicalise yet more Britons, the signatories wrote.” So apparently they would have us believe that David Cameron calling the Islamic State “the Islamic State” will make young Muslims in Britain think that it is an Islamic State, and that they must go wage jihad on its behalf. And that makes sense, since David Cameron is such a renowned imam, his word on Islam commands singular respect among Muslims.

The incident itself is troubling enough, but you won't believe what happened after the Eyewitness News investigators arrived at the restaurant to demand answers. It's one of the most bizarre exchanges Eyewitness News has ever had on a story. Federal law is very clear: Dogs are recognized as service animals and all businesses open to the public, including restaurants, must allow them in. But a U.S. Army veteran says a Subway restaurant in Paterson, New Jersey, blatantly ignored the law, and...

The jihadists, thought to be a 30-strong group, said they wanted to return home to Britain but were afraid they would be jailed if they did so. They also complained about feeling ‘disillusioned’ over the last two weeks. It was unclear whether this related to the recent beheadings of two American journalists. Some who travelled to fight against Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime are instead being forced to get involved in in-fighting among rebel groups. One fighter,...

But he also said that on Monday he will be unveiling new measures to address ‘gaps’ in the UK’s ‘armoury’: [SNIP] Those gaps won’t just cover passports, though. Labour is calling on the government to look again at its decision to scrap control orders....

    ...Betrayal was in the news again today, when Britain was rocked by allegations that the entire English town of Rotherham had for years been in the grip of an “Asian” gang which raped or kidnapped or abused some 1,400 mostly white underaged girls. The town authorities apparently knew as did the police, but they suppressed the facts out of the fear of being called ‘racist’ and more probably, the physical menaces of these ‘Asians’. The ‘Asians’ were of course Pakistani Muslims....The British public are momentarily outraged, but the Rotherham officials, including the official in charge of child welfare, aren’t too...

    The shocking and disturbing videotaped execution of American journalist James Foley had, besides the most gruesome and obvious, another jarring element: the composed British voice of his murderer, repeating fanatical Islamist propaganda and making terroristic threats in impeccable English. Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, an up-and-coming rapper who abandoned making music in London to make war in Syria in 2012, is far from the first UK national to embrace the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Great Britain’s Foreign Office estimates that at least 400 British citizens have gone to join the carnage in Syria. One member of Parliament thinks Merry...

    Let’s start with a riddle. If South Yorkshire Police can mount a raid on Sir Cliff Richard’s home in pursuit of evidence linked to a single allegation of child sex abuse 30 years ago, why were South Yorkshire Police incapable of pursuing multiple allegations against multiple men who raped 1,400 children over 16 years? One thousand four hundred. Consider the weight of that number, feel its tragic heft. Picture 50 junior-school classes of little girls in Rotherham, once a respectable northern town, now a byword for depravity. We have seen child-grooming cases before, but the disgusting stories revealed in the...

    It's 12:40 in the afternoon, and in the Islamic Center of Tucson, a time to pray. Muslims have a strict daily prayer schedule, five times a day at specific times. One of those times is in the middle of the school day. In a room off the library at Desert View High School, four to six Muslim students pray during every school day for about 10 minutes. Sunnyside Unified School District officials tell the News 4 Tucson Investigators that all but one of the students pray during their lunch period, the other misses a few minutes of a class.

    The sister of the Boston marathon bombing suspect was arrested in New York City Wednesday for allegedly making a bomb threat, police said. Ailina Tsarnaev, 24, sister of Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was charged with aggravated harassment after a bomb threat was made by phone to another woman on Monday. The recipient -- whose name was not released -- notified police of the threat, according to NYPD Lt. John Grimpel. Ailina Tsarnaev, a resident of North Bergen, New Jersey, turned herself in to authorities on Wednesday.

    (Reuters) - The U.S. government sued a small Minneapolis suburb on Wednesday, accusing it of religious discrimination after local leaders denied a Muslim group the right to open a center in the municipality. The Justice Department filed a complaint in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis against St. Anthony Village, where council members voted 4-1 in 2012 to deny a request by the Abu Huraira Islamic Center to create a place of worship in the basement of the St. Anthony Business Center. "Religious freedom is one of our most cherished rights, and there are few aspects of that right more central...

    They got the FBI and other federal agencies in 2011 to remove all mention of Islam and jihad in connection with terrorism from counter-terror training materials, and to fire counter-terror trainers (including me) who spoke the truth about how Islamic jihadists used the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and make recruits. Now, flush with that victory, they’re moving in for the kill: any law enforcement official who may have heard the truth must be reeducated. Chairman Mao would be dead chuffed, but the fact is that even if Obama accepts and implements this demand, and he probably...

    CAIR also got several police departments in President Obama’s home state of Illinois to cancel essential counterterrorism courses over accusations that the instructor was anti-Muslim. The course was called “Islamic Awareness as a Counter-Terrorist Strategy” and departments in Lombard, Elmhurst and Highland Park caved into CAIR’s demands. The group responded with a statement commending officials for their “swift action in addressing the Muslim community’s concerns.” CAIR has wielded its power in a number of other cases during the Obama presidency, including blocking an FBI probe involving the radicalization of young Somali men in the U.S. and pressuring the government to...

    A Vermont diner decided to take down a sign advertising bacon after a Muslim declared that she had a beef with bacon. Sneakers Bistro had placed a sign on a lamp post that read, “Yield Sneakers Bacon.” The diner was allowed to erect the sign because of their participation in a beautification program in the town of Winooski. A woman who described herself as a “vegan and a member of a Muslim household” called the sign offensive, the Burlington Free Press reported. “Given the large number of Muslim families in Winooski, as well as many others who do not eat...
  • Abu Dhabi Legal Expert Explains the Three Divorce Rule

    A legal expert from the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department has clarified Sharia rules on divorce after a case last week where a couple sought to divorce for the third time. Muna Al Raeesi, head of legal aid at ADJD, said that when a husband and wife divorced for the first time, there was a waiting period known as “idda”, which is designed to give the couple time to reconcile without finalising the divorce procedure. The waiting period lasts for three of the wife’s menstrual cycles to ensure she is not pregnant. If she is pregnant, it lasts until the child...
