  • Why They Behead Us

    Algemeiner ^ | September 9, 2014 | Lawrence J. Siskind
    Four American noncombatants have been beheaded by Islamic fanatics, and the videos of their murders brazenly circulated over the internet for the world to witness. Another Westerner – David Cawthorne Haines, a security expert hired by international aid organizations – faces the same gruesome fate. Why do they behead us? The question goes to the method, not the motive, of the madness. Murderers’ motives don’t matter much in the Middle East. In local eyes, there are so many causes to kill for, and so many victims deserving death. But assuming one is inclined to butcher, why do so by the...
  • Ginger Jihadis: Why Redheads are Attracted to Radical Islam (school bullying often a factor)

    Dozens of young redheaded men and women are replacing the ritual bullying of the playground with the ritual strictures of radical Islam, perhaps – at least according to some experts – as a result of the bullying and persecution they endure early in life. You’ve likely already made the connection between ginger hair and home-grown Islamic radicals yourself. Subconsciously, perhaps, from newspaper reports showing carrot-topped wannabe jihadis from Bradford, and TV clips of auburn brothers in east London. What you probably don’t know is just how vastly over-represented redheads are in the ranks of Islamist converts. There are no surveys...
  • Terror Army Known as "Islamic State" Not Considered Islamic by President Obama

    ISIL and ISIS literally stands for "Islamic State" but the current President of the United States doesn't think they're "Islamic." "ISIL is not Islamic," Obama said in his speech Wednesday night about ISIL [ISIS]. "No religion condones the killing if innocents. The vast majority of ISIL victims have been Muslim and ISIL is certainly not a state." By this logic, Islamic State terrorists who kill Muslims because they aren't radical enough or the proper type of Muslim, aren't "Islamic." Obama's asinine statement comes just a few weeks after two American journalists had their heads sawed off in the name of...

    On Tuesday night, the three major broadcast networks omitted from their coverage on the Islamic group ISIS a report that President Barack Obama has received briefings on the terrorist organization “for at least a year before the group seized large swaths of territory over the summer.” ABC, CBS, and NBC all led their evening newscasts with multiple segments on the gruesome murder of American journalist Stephen Sotloff at the hands of ISIS in a propaganda video released on Tuesday afternoon. Over on the Fox News Channel (FNC), Special Report with Bret Baier aired three segments on the story, including a...

    Obama administration has waged its own war on America’s capacity to meet the needs of our national security Many Americans were shocked by the Islamic State video of the beheading of the photo journalist James Foley. Perhaps they had already forgotten the decapitation of Wall Street Journal journalist, Daniel Pearl in 2002. Most certainly, the memory of the murder of nearly 3,000 on September 11, 2001, with the destruction of the World Trade Towers has begun to recede. What most do not know is that decapitation is a requirement in the Islamic holy war and holy book, the Koran.

    An American journalist held by a terrorist group in Syria was freed Sunday after nearly two years of captivity, according to U.S. officials. Peter Theo Curtis, 45, a freelance journalist from Boston, was released in the Golan Heights Sunday evening, and U.S. authorities said they expected him to be reunited with his family "shortly," according to a statement from Susan Rice, President Obama's national security adviser. Jabhat al-Nusrah, al Qaeda's Syrian arm, held Curtis for 22 months. His safe release comes just five days after the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria circulated a video of American journalist James Foley's...

    The possibility of the ISIS terrorist group attacking America has Senator Jim Inhofe claiming that ISIS’ WMD capabilities may include developing a bomb big enough to destroy a U.S. city. The Islamic terrorist group is now the richest in the world and apparently the best organized since it’s believed that ISIS sleeper cells are allegedly planning a large scale terror attack within the United States. The full extent of ISIS’ WMD capabilities have been debated by the experts ever since it was revealed that the ISIS in Iraq had uncovered Saddam Hussein’s WMD stockpiles. The ISIS terrorist group even managed...

According to court documents, Dawari has been in touch with HIG associates in Pakistan and in January was the intended recipient of a book sent from Pakistan containing a secret message glued between two pages.

    A report into the so-called Trojan Horse plot to takeover schools in Birmingham has found a "determined effort" to implement radical Islam. The comments came from the newly appointed Education Secretary Nicky Morgan, who made a statement on the subject in the House of Commons today. The review was ordered by the Morgan's predecessor Michael Gove, following reports that as many as twenty-five Birmingham schools had been the subject of takeovers. In each case, the governing bodies were infiltrated by radicals who then set about pushing out moderate teachers and implementing radical Islam. Today's report makes clear that the allegations...

Also last month, Obama freed five senior Taliban terrorist commanders in exchange for an American serviceman who may have been a deserter.Obama could have cut funding to the PA, which would have made sense strategically, and could have supported a close, long-standing American ally, Israel. He could have refused any exchange of senior Taliban leaders. Why didn’t...

After all, Libya's roughly the same size as his home state of Massachusetts, the former Senator said. 'I know something about what you can provide when you want to.'

Libya's second largest city is the scene of frequent clashes between the army and Islamist militias. Authorities in the capital Tripoli have struggled to deal with rebels since Muammar Gaddafi was ousted in 2011. Eyewitnesses told the BBC that an Islamist militia base in Benghazi was bombed by warplanes. The death toll is unclear but medical sources in the...

Ali, who was born in Somalia explains perfectly why the transformation from the so-called ‘peaceful’ brand of Islam into the more violent strain is as reliable as a chemical formula. It all ends the same way. As peaceful men assemble to listen to well-intentioned, peaceful Muslim preachers, evil and hatred creeps in. This happens not because these preachers start out wanting to go...

Mr. Clinton not only stated that poverty was the cause, but that specifically, Islam and religion could not be blamed in any way. “You have to somehow bring economic opportunity to the people who don’t have it," Clinton stated. He added, "You have all these political problems — and now violence problems — that appear to be rooted in religious differences and all the...

    PC: According to NBC News, the Justice Department will soon prohibit religious profiling in terror cases. The move, if true, would completely blind federal law enforcement to the threat from Islamic extremism. Already, the department has forced the FBI to bleach references to "Islam" and "jihad" from its counterterrorism training materials. It's also made it harder for agents to infiltrate radical mosques. But Attorney General Eric Holder reportedly now wants to make it illegal for agents to even consider religion in their investigations. Democrats on the Hill are cheering the changes, along with the ACLU and radical Muslim Brotherhood front...

The rebels who took over the city are associated with the al Nusra Front, an al Qaeda-associated Islamist group.

    Rebels including al-Qaeda-linked fighters gained control of a Christian village northeast of the capital Damascus, Syrian activists said Sunday. Government media provided a dramatically different account of the battle suggesting regime forces were winning. Independent information has been nearly impossible to come by in the 2.5-year-old conflict in Syria. Maaloula, a scenic mountain community, is known for being one of the few places in the world where residents still speak the ancient Middle Eastern language of Aramaic. The rebel advance into the area this week was spearheaded by the Jabhat al-Nusra, or Nusra Front, exacerbating fears among Syrians and religious...

    Okay Freeper Family, you know President Obama is itching to pull the trigger on Syria to deflect from his failed policies and train wreak administration, but something about all the evidence of a Syrian Government Chemical Attack just does not pass the smell test. Many of you know I am a veterans and here is where I need some of my fellow vets to help me understand something. Mr. Kerry in his push for action stated that less than 1,500 people were killed in a government launched chemical attack, now that is a very low number of deaths from a...

    Syria is increasingly becoming a hotbed for jihadist movements and Al Zawahiri devoted a sizeable portion of his latest speech to urging young Muslims to join the jihad in that country. Al Zawahiri will not offer to relinquish his influence over jihadist movements in the Arab world. By contacting Al Qaeda affiliates, he is trying to flex his muscles to regain influence over jihadists in Syria and to show his importance as the emir of Al Qaeda as a trademark of jihadism. This is important for the unity of the movement, which plays a major role in attracting individuals to...

    Russian President Vladimir Putin called an extraordinary session at the Kremlin Saturday to "discuss the situation in Egypt and take the necessary steps to the put Russian military facilities at the Egyptian military's disposal," said an announcement in Moscow, without elaborating. Putin said further that "Russia will arrange for joint military exercises with the Egyptian army." DEBKAfile: Moscow's steps directly conflict with Western condemnation of the Egyptian military's crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood. They were taken shortly after President Barack Obama cancelled a joint military exercise with Egypt as a mark of US disapproval.

    Our dog eating Dear Leader, Barack Hussein Obama, had this to say about the "phony" NSA spying scandal during his August 9th "press" conference: *** "As I said at the National Defense University back in May, in meeting those threats we have to strike the right balance between protecting our security and preserving our freedoms." http://www.npr.org/2013/08/09/210574114/transcript-president-obamas-news-conference *** Ladies and gentlemen, the above quote needs to be immortalized in some way. Perhaps it should be carved into the base of the Statue of Liberty or onto the side of a mountain. Maybe children should be forced to memorize it in their...
  • Rolling Stone’s strange, dreamy cover of terrorist, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

    It’s interesting, and infuriating. We’ve already seen the rise of what Twitchy calls the “Jaharem” of admirers of the Boston Marathon bombing suspect, in custody since murdering a police officer and engaging in a firefight with law enforcement, then hiding and bleeding in a boat the rest of the day until he was discovered. Now Rolling Stone offers a profile of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the surviving brother of the duo who killed three and injured hundreds of others at the event, including an eight-year-old boy shredded by their bomb.Why not give Tsarnaev the soft focus treatment for that, huh?RS at least...

    Ask a progressive liberal who is the biggest cause to peace throughout the world and their answer will most likely be the USA. They will cite the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, our cultural insensitivity, and our military response to those poor, desperate souls striving to throw off the yoke of Western imperialism. In actuality, these progressive liberals are not only fools, but damn dangerous fools. They continue to ignore the threat of Muslim extremism and the ongoing war to destroy Western culture. For some inexplicable reason, liberals believe that if we're just friendlier to those who seek to kill...

    The military coup that ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi marks another failure in U.S. foreign policy over several administrations, which have erroneously promoted the notion that American-style democracy in Islamic lands will produce a nation more like ours. The Founders wrote a Constitution. When properly read and obeyed, it guards against pure democracy and makes "we the people" subject to laws that cannot be abolished by popular vote. Benjamin Franklin properly called what the Founders wrought a "Republic." Representative government would guard against the passions of a majority. No such safeguards apply in Egypt, or for that matter throughout most...

    As Michael Mukasey, the former federal judge and attorney general, wrote in another context: “The Constitution and US laws are not a treaty with the universe; they protect US citizens.” So it is with our foreign policy. The first goal is to protect America’s security and interests. Everything else is second. That formula explains why Mohammed Morsi’s election doesn’t trump other all other considerations. After all, Hamas won an election in Gaza, and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad won two elections in Iran. Hitler was elected, and so was Saddam Hussein. Elections in police-state societies can be a step in the right direction,...

    The 2011 Arab uprisings presented the United States with a historic opportunity to take a clear stand on the side of freedom and democracy and strengthen its own standing in the process. Incredibly, the Obama administration has blundered and stumbled, with a response marked by timidity and caution. But when the government went after that same civil society, arresting and then convicting 43 members of nongovernmental organizations -- including 16 Americans -- and sentencing them to prison terms on sham charges, the U.S. kept its voice low, to the dismay of its friends. The Obama administration has been so timid,...
