    If you're planning on serving your family a fresh turkey this Thanksgiving, you may be hard pressed to find one available at your local supermarket. Less than two weeks before the year's greatest food holiday, Butterball, the nation's largest producer of turkeys, is warning of a shortage of birds. Butterball announced that it will be shipping out half as many large, fresh never-frozen turkeys to retailers this year. The company says many of its birds had trouble gaining weight during the production process. And though the cause of the problem remains a mystery, food distributors say their orders for turkeys...

The little-known organization, called Setad, is one of the keys to the Iranian leader’s enduring power and now holds...

    The situation for women has worsened in Egypt since the 2011 revolution, while Iraqi women now suffer greater violence and discrimination than under Saddam Hussein. Egypt is the worst country in the Arab world to be a woman, according to a poll of gender experts which found high levels of sexual harassment and female genital mutilation as well as an increase in violence and Islamist sentiment following the 2011 revolution. Hopes that the Arab Spring would improve the lot of women in Egypt have not only been confounded, their situation has in fact worsened ... Syria has in the past...

    **SNIP** Also Yasir Qadhi was the teacher of the Underwear Bomber. And a member of the Muslim Students Association. These days he teaches in the Religious Studies Department of Rhodes College, in Memphis, Tennessee. **SNIP** The life and property of a (non-muslim) becomes “halal” (officially allowed by Sharia) while in a state of Jihad… And I quoted the Hadith before, “I have been commanded to fight the people until they say (declaration of Islamic faith). When they say (conversion to Islam) their property becomes protected from them. Which means if they don’t… their life and property are Halal (free for...

    The Psychology of Islamic Culture by EDWARD CLINE November 5, 2013 It is commendable that someone should address the psychological profile of Muslims - that is, of individuals born into the culture of Islam - and Nicolai Sennels does that in his Jihad Watch article of October 30th, "Cultural psychology: How Islam managed to stay medieval for 1,400 years." I began reading it with some eagerness. Over the years I have had nothing good to say about the psychology or mindset of anyone who was either born into the religion/ideology and never challenged it or attempted to escape it, or...

    Rome (AsiaNews) - With the ninth World Islamic Economic Forum, held in London between 29 and 31 October, Islamic finance has come into its own and gone mainstream. Until a few years ago, Islamic finance was unknown to most people. Some even equated it to the financing of Islamic terrorism. In fact, in the years right after 9/11, anything about Islam was viewed with concern. Now things are different. British Prime Minister David Cameron, who spoke at the forum, said that London is no longer happy to be the main Islamic financial centre outside Muslim countries; it now wants to...

Islam is Islam and that’s it.” ~ Erdogan, PM of Turkey Turkey took another step backwards this week … lurching toward Sharia … when 4 female MPs marked the end of a ban enforced since the early days of the Turkish Republic. The female MPs were wearing headscarves, as they walked into Turkey’s parliament in Ankara on Oct. 31st, designating the end of a prohibition vigorously imposed since the dawn of a secular Turkey.

Prime Minister David Cameron has announced that the UK will become the first non-Muslim country to issue an Islamic bond. At the World Islamic Economic Forum (WIEF) in London, he also announced plans for a new Islamic index on the...

    It's trhe sharia. Respect it. "A young couple in conservative southern Afghanistan..." Conservative? The media is sick in their collectivist head. How does the Muslim community respond to the desperate circumstances of Muslim girls living in devout Muslims homes? They deny, obfuscate and dissemble. The Muslim community protects the religious honor code while smearing and libeling the truth tellers coming to the aid of these girls as "racists." Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide. The Palestinian Authority gives pardons or suspended sentences for honor murders. Iraqi women have asked for tougher sentences for Islamic honor murderers, who get...
