    Forbes Magazine is promoting Iran as one of “The 10 Coolest Places to Go in 2017,” based on a review by Melissa Biggs Bradley, founder of the travel website Indagare. “Visitors to Iran understand that they must adapt to Sharia law and customs, under which alcohol is strictly forbidden and women must wear hijabs, or headscarves, outside their rooms,” Biggs Bradley wrote. “Advanced visas are required for Americans, who must be accompanied by Iranian guides and may not visit Iranians in their homes."

    Danish police are looking for a gang who beat up a young couple over a pizza slice with ham. The woman now risks permanent damage to her hearing after being punched in the head. Saturday night a young couple were attacked by up to five people “of other ethnic origin” in Silkeborg, reports BT. The attack took place outside a pizza restaurant in Silkeborg, where a 24-year-old woman and her boyfriend sat while eating a pizza. The perpetrator took one of her pieces of pizza and threw it on the ground, which developed into a scuffle, and soon after the...

    BANGKOK — Walt Disney Studios has refused to cut a brief, gay-themed scene from “Beauty and the Beast” as demanded by government censors in Malaysia, meaning the film will not open there Thursday as scheduled. The Film Censorship Board of Malaysia recently ruled that a shot involving two male characters dancing in a ballroom must be cut from the movie, on the grounds that it promotes homosexuality. The sequence is said to be three seconds long. “The film has not been and will not be cut for Malaysia,” Disney said in a statement Tuesday without elaborating. The film’s director, Bill...

    Remember Afghanistan? The longest war in American history? Ever? When it comes to wars, we Americans have a selective memory. The Afghan war, dating from October 2001, has earned the distinction of having been forgotten while still underway. President Trump’s Inaugural Address included no mention of Afghanistan. Nor did his remarks last month at a joint session of Congress. For the new commander in chief, the war there qualifies at best as an afterthought — assuming, that is, he has thought about it all. A similar attitude prevails on Capitol Hill. Congressional oversight has become pro forma. Last week Gen....
  • Turks push to turn iconic Hagia Sophia back into a mosque

    03/10/2017 8:18:48 AM PST · by cutty · 15 replies
    For eight decades, the iconic Hagia Sophia [áŒ‰ÎłÎŻÎ± ÎŁÎżÏ†ÎŻÎ±, “Holy Wisdom”] – museum in Istanbul [Constantinople] has stood as a symbol of Turkey’s commitment to a secular society. Now that tradition is under siege by growing calls to convert the historic structure back into a practicing mosque. The 1,500-year-old structure originally was built as an Orthodox Christian cathedral. It was turned into a mosque in the 15th century after the Ottoman Turks defeated the Greek emperor in Constantinople and renamed the city Istanbul. In the 1930s, the founder of modern Turkey, Kemal Ataturk, turned it into a museum in his...

Al-Ahram reports that the father, 65-year-old Saad Hana, and his son, 45-year-old Medhat, were found by Egyptian security officials on Wednesday. Authorities told The Associated Press that the father was shot in the head, while the son appeared to have been abducted and burned alive.

    President Donald Trump was more right than wrong about Sweden. Fox News was slightly misleading. As you've heard, Trump referred to "(what happened) last night in Sweden." On Twitter, smug critics circulated lists of anodyne events like concerts and road accidents and accused the president of inventing a terror attack. He didn't cite a terror attack, though his words were characteristically imprecise. Two days later, as if to underscore that Trump had a point, riots erupted in a suburb of Stockholm. As Andrew Brown of The Guardian put it, Sweden looms large in the "fantasies of the outside world." It...

The occasion marks their first overseas business trip since their father was inaugurated. During a brief speech made to a crowd of...

    American Thinker ^ | February 14, 2017 | Mathew Voegtli
    Why should Americans feel obligated to open our borders for Muslims to move here en masse? Foreign nationals in foreign countries do not have U.S. Constitutional rights. As the Supreme Court has held, an unadmitted and nonresident alien "had no constitutional right of entry to this country as a nonimmigrant or otherwise." (Mandel, 408 U.S. at 762; see Plasencia, 459 U.S. at 32.) Beyond this fact, the president has plenary power over foreign affairs and this includes, under the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952, the power to suspend or impose restrictions on the entry of foreign nationals if he...

One of the major influences and advisers for King Salman of Saudi Arabia is Egyptian President Fattah Abdel el-Sisi.

In conjunction with then Ambassador to Iraq James Jeffrey, Mattis proposed a strike inside Iranian territory, according to...

    Today was yet another day from hell in Baghdad. All in all, three car bombs went off in the capital of Iraq. The bloodiest of them all, in Sadr city, was claimed by ISIS. In that attack, at least 55 people were murdered. 60 others were injured. TWEET Below a photo of the carnage: PHOTO Most inhabitants of Sadr City are Shiite Muslims, which is why they're targeted by ISIS, a radical Sunni terror group. ISIS considers Shiites fake Muslims or even apostates, which makes it -- according to the hateful theology of the Islamist group -- fair to kill...

    After Obama left Cairo, the Muslim Brotherhood was empowered, and military rulers weakened and brought down one after another. By Western standards, military rule is shunned as an oppressive form of government, but in the Islamic world it is the only buffer of protection from the tyranny of total sharia that must be enforced by Islamic theocracies, such as those of Iran and Saudi Arabia. The Muslim Brotherhood and then ISIS quickly filled the vacuum and the Muslim world is now on fire.

    A video of Muslims and Jewish people dancing together at a Hanukkah celebration in Bahrain has been condemned by Hamas as a “humiliating and disgraceful spectacle.”For the second year in a row, the Arab state hosted a candle-lighting ceremony marking the start of Hanukkah, Saturday.

Later, a video was posted to YouTube showing Jewish men in kippahs and Muslim men wearing keffiyehs dancing together.That combination led to a furious reaction from the Palestinian Islamic...

    The chilly December wind whipped rain across the strewn wreckage of a city that, nearly 3,000 years ago, ruled almost the entire Middle East. Rivulets of water ran through the dirt, washing away chunks of ancient stone. The city of Nimrud in northern Iraq is in pieces, victim of the Islamic State group's fervor to erase history. The remains of its palaces and temples, once lined in brilliant reliefs of gods and kings, have been blown up. The statues of winged bulls that once guarded the site are hacked to bits. Its towering ziggurat, or step pyramid, has been bulldozed.

    Is outgoing US President Barack Obama buying a palatial mansion in Dubai; a lavish, overseas residence in order to impress those who will select the new UN Secretary General when Ban Ki-moon steps down at the end of this year?

Adding further drama to the Obama family mystery, the Militarycorruption.com website exclusively says, "We don't buy the official line" from Navy Third Fleet Commander, Vice-Admiral Nora Tyson who claims Navy Rear Admiral Rick Williams, the esteemed newly appointed...

    CHRISTIANS are the most persecuted religious group in the world with more than 90,000 killed in 2016 because of their faith, a leading religious study group director has claimed. Speaking on Vatican Radio, Massimo Introvigne, Director of the Centre for Studies on New Religions (CESNUR), said more than 60,000 of the Christians killed this year were murdered in tribal conflicts in Africa. He claimed these deaths often came after Christians refused to take up arms for reasons of conscience. The religious chief said: "The other 30 per cent, or 27,000, were killed in terror attacks, the destruction of Christian villages,...
