    A report today by the Department of Homeland Security Inspector General concludes that the field office director at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services “improperly delayed” investigators from Immigration and Customs Enforcement from conducting a “lawful and routine law enforcement action” after the San Bernardino terrrorist attack last December. The report will be posted soon on the Inspector General’s website. Inspector General John Roth conducted the investigation at the request of Sen. Ron Johnson, Chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs. Roth notes that the “situation” was “corrected” once the incident was “elevated” to supervisors. But the...

    A major Islamic researcher, highly respected in her field, has said outright ‘we are going to destroy you completely from your culture down to your biological makeup’ on a taxpayer-funded television station–a German equivalent of PBS or C-SPAN. “No more blue eyes.” “No more light hair.” This video significantly irritates me. I’ve been saying it over and over here, but Merkel is planning a total genocide of the German people by demographics. Merkel & Co. have alluded to it. The average (instead of Joe) “Mohammed on the street” has said it. Now you have a major Islamic researcher, highly respected...

    Author and human rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali argued President Obama's position on radical Islam is what he believes is strategic, but "it's a strategy that has failed" on Monday's "Hannity" on the Fox News Channel. Ali stated, "I'm always surprised to see people of authority here saying, what we see, these terrorist acts, the subjugation of women, the hatred of Jews and Christians, it has nothing to do with Islam. I mean, I watch that with amazement. I obviously have come to understand that it is a strategic position, that if we say these things, maybe the Islamist extremists...

    The Minnesota Republic ^ | November 11, 2015 | Kasey Carpenter
    On Tuesday, November 10, the Minnesota Student Association (MSA)-the undergraduate student government at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities (UMN)- rejected a resolution for a moment of recognition on future anniversaries of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Theo Menon, the student group representative to MSA for the College Republicans (CRs) at UMN, introduced the resolution; MSA's forum voted against it 36-23 (with three abstentions). The proposed resolution pointed to the university's lack of any sort of commemoration regarding the attacks on 9/11. It then called for a campus-wide moment of recognition on every September 11 from now on. "I wrote...

    GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump says the United States has "absolutely no choice" but to close down mosques where "some bad things are happening." "Nobody wants to say this and nobody wants to shut down religious institutions or anything, but you know, you understand it," Trump said on Fox News's "Hannity" on Tuesday. "A lot of people understand it. We're going to have no choice." Trump said on Monday he would "strongly consider" closing mosques if elected in response to the terrorist attacks in France last Friday that killed at least 129 people and injured hundreds more.

    PARIS—One of the assailants in Friday’s deadly attacks in and near the French capital recently entered Europe as a Syrian migrant, people familiar with the matter said, exposing gaps in the continent’s security as it copes with the biggest refugee crisis in decades. French investigators were able to match the remains of one of the suicide bombers who attacked France’s main stadium to a Syrian passport that was used to enter Europe’s free-travel area and apply for asylum, the people familiar with the matter said. European security officials have worried that Islamic State operatives would bring terror by mixing with...

    Before the Muslim terror stabbing spree, Netanyahu had made repeated efforts to meet with the leader of the PLO. And for once, Abbas, the PLO leader, had not been averse to a meeting. Instead it was Secretary of State John Kerry who told Abbas not to meet with Netanyahu. Abbas went to the UN and disavowed the Oslo Accords. The first Muslim stabbings of Jews, with the encouragement of the PLO, began a few days later.

Rami Abdulrahman, the head of the Observatory, said the Christians were "either kidnapped from checkpoints or raids or from churches." Among those seized were 45 women and 19 children, including 11 families, some of whom were on a militants' wanted list, said the monitor that tracks the war's violence through an extensive network of sources on the ground.

    Where does the story begin? Quite simply with colonialism. It's no mere coincidence that at least two of the Charlie Hebdo attackers are reportedly of Algerian descent and the third from Senegal. France's 1830 invasion of Algeria began a 130-year odyssey of murder, expropriation, racism, exploitation and misrule that only ended after a vicious anti-colonial struggle costing well over one million Algerian lives. It's no more shocking that some Muslims have become psychotic enough to murder, rape and pillage their way across eastern Nigeria and eastern Paris than it is that France, home of "liberty", "equality", and "fraternity", sells billions...

Sami Samir Hassoun was sentenced Thursday, little more than a month after the Boston Marathon bomb attack. The 25-year-old former baker pleaded guilty last year to dropping the backpack into a trash can outside a bar packed with late-night revelers across the road from Wrigley Field in 2010.

But the president of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum said videos made by some of the 19 hijackers in preparation for their suicide missions make up part of the...

The Persian invasion of Greece and the Greeks’ victory over that vast empire set the foundations of the Greeks’ golden age. The Greeks directed their legitimate pride for their courage and manliness to works of permanent beauty and originality. Instead of counter attacking the defeated Persians, the Athenians in particular rebuilt their destroyed polis with gleaming marble vigorous democratic institutions, flourishing theater, Panhellenic athletic contests-celebrations of goddess Athena, schools of...

He said: "I am deeply concerned about the targeting of Christmas celebrations at schools for students as young as five years...

    As the Monitor noted back in July, “alarm bells went off like crazy when Steven Spielberg hired Tony Kushner last year to rewrite the script of a movie about Israel’s clandestine — and lethal — response to the massacre of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics.” The Monitor found cause for concern because Kushner is a radical leftist whose views on the Middle East are hardly distinguishable from the hateful screeds found on the most rabidly anti-Israel websites.

    JOHN Howard condemned Sydney's race riots as "sickening" and rejected claims they exposed a racist underbelly as community leaders searched for reasons for the violence. As he prepared to fly to Malaysia for today's inaugural East Asia Summit, where the riots are front-page news, the Prime Minister was also forced to deny his stand on homegrown terrorists was partly to blame. "I believe yesterday's behaviour was completely unacceptable but I'm not going to put a general tag of racism on the Australian community," Mr Howard said. "I think it's a term that's flung around carelessly and I'm simply not going...

    PARIS -- Yelling into a radio reporter’s microphone, the radical French Muslim from a working class neighbourhood of Paris urged his friends to join him on the battlefields of Iraq. "I’m ready to set off dynamite and boom! Boom! We kill all the Americans!" Boubaker el-Hakim cried. "All my brothers over there, come defend Islam!" That chilling message, in a 2003 interview conducted in Iraq as U.S. troops were preparing to invade, has proven to be an early warning of a worrisome new phenomenon of homegrown militants from Europe heading to Iraq to join the insurgency, driven by anger over...

    MANTES-LA-JOLIE, France - A warning whistle pierces the air, followed by a deafening roar. Two gray housing project towers come crashing down, replaced by a yellow dust cloud that blots out the horizon. Applause, whoops of excitement, and a hint of sadness is heard among the throngs of mainly North and West African residents who have gathered to witness the demolition in this town 30 miles west of Paris. Along with torched cars and Molotov cocktails, France's grim housing projects have come to symbolize the discontent that erupted in recent riots across depressed, mostly immigrant neighborhoods. The violence has awakened...
  • Red "Crescent of Embrace" chosen for Flight 93 Memorial

    Red "Crescent of Embrace" chosen for Flight 93 Memorial An incredibly ill-conceived "gesture of healing and bonding." From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, with thanks to Charles. WASHINGTON -- It will serve as a living tribute. With each wind, each breeze, a set of chimes housed in a 93-foot tower will create a different song in memory of the 40 people who sacrificed their lives trying to save the lives of others. Four years after United Airlines Flight 93 crashed into a reclaimed strip mine near Shanksville, Somerset County, on Sept. 11, 2001, the design that will serve as the national memorial...

    Seven suspected Islamic radicals went on trial in France yesterday – four of them for allegedly providing logistical support to the killers of Ahmed Shah Massood, the Afghan anti-Taliban military commander. In the unusually broad-based trial, four of seven face charges for carrying out survival training designed to prepare them for training camps in Russia and Afghanistan. All seven face allegations of “criminal association in relation to a terrorist enterprise” – a broad charge widely used in terrorism cases in France. They could face a maximum 10 years in prison. Massood was killed on September 9, 2001, in northern Afghanistan...

    Mr. Williams is a student at the University of Washington and an intern at HNN. Though a definite link has yet to be established (or publicized), it becomes more apparent with each passing day that the acts of terror on September 11 were undertaken by individuals belonging to or associated with the Al-Qaida organization. While the group has ties to the Taliban, the current ruling faction in Afghanistan, neither can really be considered a government, making war with either an unconventional one. Yet the United States is hardly unused to combating unconventional foes. While the Vietnam War and the "War...

    A View from the Eye of the Storm Talk delivered by Haim Harari As you know, I usually provide the scientific and technological "entertainment" in our meetings, but, on this occasion, our Chairman suggested that I present my own personal view on events in the part of the world from which I come. I have never been and I will never be a Government official and I have no privileged information. My perspective is entirely based on what I see, on what I read and on the fact that my family has lived in this region for almost 200 years....

    PORTLAND -- The final two defendants in the alleged terrorist cell known as the "Portland Seven" have pleaded guilty and agreed to serve 18 years in federal prison. Patrice Ford and Jeffrey Battle were among seven Portland area residents who had been charged with plotting to wage war against the United States. The charge carried a maximum sentence of 20 years and a $250,000 fine. They had initially also been charged with money laundering, supporting terrorism and other offenses. Four others had earlier pleaded guilty. The pleas came during a hearing when defense attorneys had intended to challenge evidence gathered...
