    Charlotte’s revulsion over Huma Abedin’s calculated “stand by your man” routine is surely right. Still, it is amazing, as we speculate about Ms. Abedin’s political future, that the elephant in the room goes unnoticed, or at least studiously unmentioned. Sorry to interrupt the Best Enabler of a Sociopath Award ceremony but, to recap, Ms. Abedin worked for many years at a journal that promotes Islamic-supremacist ideology that was founded by a top al-Qaeda financier, Abdullah Omar Naseef. Naseef ran the Rabita Trust, a formally designated foreign terrorist organization under American law. Ms. Abedin and Naseef overlapped at the Journal of...

    Thirty-five-year-old Nasir Hussain, of Pakistan’s Punjab province, has been arrested for the double murders of his sisters, 22-year-old Kosar and 28-year-old Gulzar Bibi, in the latest “honor killing” case. Hussain shot his sisters because they married the men of their choice, for love. The murders were committed on July 29, just days after “a British woman of Pakistani origin was allegedly killed by her father and former husband for marrying her second husband against her parents’ wishes.” In another incident, a social media star was strangled by her brother after exposing an Islamic cleric’s violations of Sharia law, including sexual...

    Newser) – The Muslim flight attendant placed on unpaid leave last year after refusing to serve alcohol in accordance with her religion is now suing her employer. Charee Stanley of Detroit says Georgia-based airline ExpressJet was initially quite accommodating of her religious beliefs when she converted to Islam in 2013, even granting her request to wear a hijab to work. But when she became aware that "the Islamic proscription on consuming alcohol also extended to the act of serving alcohol to others" in 2015, she says she asked her employer if other flight attendants could serve alcohol in her place,...

    The liberal media cheered Ibrihaj for her bold lifestyle choices — and her hatred of America and Trump. Information Liberation reported: Hijab wearing fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad, who declared jihad on Donald Trump last week, lost almost immediately at the Rio Olympics. The “history maker” is now being portrayed as a poor victim, pressured into being a “one-woman Trump buster.” From The Independent: She was the poster girl for the hijab, a breaker of ground as the first American Muslim to compete at the Olympic Games in the traditional head-dress of her faith. Turns out faith was irrelevant all along. When...

    Female Muslim-American Olympian Bashes U.S.A. — Claims She Feels “Unsafe” / US / Female Muslim-American Olympian Bashes U.S.A. — Claims She Feels “Unsafe” American Olympian fencer, Ibtihaj Muhammad, is a Muslim and the first American to compete in an Olympic games wearing a Hijab. The left loves their identity politics and firsts, even if their first involves a highly controversial symbol that many in the west see as anathema to western culture and women’s rights. To liberals, as long as it’s anti-Christian or anti-American, it’s good to go. The Independent Journal reported, via The Daily Beast that Muhammad not only...

    Previously, I posted on the vile Jew-hatred the Muslim poster girl for the American Olympics. The sharia -compliant media has designated her icon of the Olympic games in Rio. But as you can see, it’s not just the Jews, Ibtihaj Muhammad‏ is an America-hater. Strange for someone who wants to hold the flag at the Olympics ( but not so strange for an Islamic supremacist). Worse the elites were calling for Phelps to give up the flag to her. This hater should carry our flag of freedom? If Ibtihaj Muhammad is a poster girl for anything, it’s how the enemies...

    A Turkish newspaper employee was tackled to the floor during an attack by burqa-clad women accusing the six-months pregnant victim of being a “Gulenist” and wearing “revealing” clothes that violate sharia law. The women were accompanied by a man who warned she was one of four other “targets” they would attack. Hazal Ölmez, an employee at the newspaper Evrensel, was walking home from work in Istanbul when three people, two of them women wearing burqas, slammed her to the floor. “Why are you wearing revealing clothes? You are a coup supporter and a Gülenist,” the group reportedly yelled at her....
