Magen David Adom ambulance service declared a “Level C” alert, the second-highest level of readiness. Local firefighters were also on standby. A police helicopter was patrolling the skies above the capital, and other units were deployed. There were also roadblocks at entrances to the city, and vehicles leaving nearby Arab villages were being checked. The fear was of a terror attack, possibly by a suicide bomber,...

    On a Sunday afternoon several months ago, I was engaged in one of my favorite religious rituals, watching pro football on television. During a break in the game, I reflexively clicked the “mute” button on the remote control. But my eyes stayed fixed on a startling commercial. The screen showed a balding man with tawny skin and a salt-and-pepper goatee, and seconds later it spelled out his name: Mujahid Abdul-Rashid. The advertisement went on to show him fishing, playing in a yard with two toddlers, and sitting down to a family meal. One week later, again during an N.F.L. game,...

The critique targets Western backing of anti-dictator rebellions in Libya and Syria, which, as Mr. Putin tells it, only fuels the spreading flames of extreme Islamist insurrection, including the current war in Mali and last week's terrorist strike on a gas complex in Algeria.

    Islamofascism: The terrorist attack on a vast Algerian gas plant Wednesday shows a resurgent al-Qaida that puts the lie to the Obama administration's claim that the war on terror is all but over. It may in fact be just beginning. Everything about the al-Qaida "Blood Brigade" attack on the Al Amenas natural gas plant 800 miles east of Algiers — where hundreds of workers, including Americans, were taken hostage in a bloody standoff — suggests an organization growing in strength with a bigger game than just retaliating for the French invasion of Mali.

The Arab network, funded by Qatar, has just bought Current TV — the low rated liberal cable station Gore and Hyatt founded — for a reported $500 million. The deal gives the anti-Israeli Arab network access to 40 million homes in the United States. Beyond bringing anti-Israeli propaganda into these new American outlets, Al Jazeera has a long record as the chosen news outlet for Al Qaeda and other terrorist cells. It was through them that Osama bin Laden would regularly post...

    The New Hampshire governorship would give jihadists and Muslim Brotherhood operatives (not to mention very real Islamic terrorists) access to incredible power and influence. "Live Free or Die" is the official motto of the U.S. state of New Hampshire. If Hassan wins the Governorship, they'll have to amend that to "submit or die." Do you live in New Hampshire? Get involved and defeat this tool. Muslim Brotherhood: What does Maggie Hassan think of her husband’s Islamic radical friends that he brings to Philips Exeter Academy? Granite Grok Erickson [RedState] has absolutely lambasted and quartered the incestuous relationship that is the...

    During the debate last night, Obama claimed that he called the Benghazi attack an “act of terror” the day after in a statement he made from the Rose Garden. Here is the claim Obama made during the debate – “The day after the attack, governor, I stood in the Rose Garden and I told the American people in the world that we are going to find out exactly what happened,” Obama said. “That this was an act of terror and I also said that we’re going to hunt down those who committed this crime.” Obviously, this caught me by surprise...

    We had our debate last night, and as was expected, Crowley made her partisan views and bias a significant factor in the debate: if you deny this obvious fact, you suffer from willful ignorance or you are so lost in your bias your sanity might be in question. Crowley let it be known, before the debate, she planned to inject her influence into the debate; after all, she has a superior intellect and is a member of the elite cadre of media engaged in the reelection of Obama. How could anyone expect or ask that she be a neutral moderator,...

    Rose Garden 10:43 A.M. EDT THE PRESIDENT: Good morning. Every day, all across the world, American diplomats and civilians work tirelessly to advance the interests and values of our nation.

Among those killed was our Ambassador, Chris Stevens, as well as Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith. We are still notifying the families of the others who were killed. And today, the American people stand united in holding the families of the...

    Washington Compost ^ | March 24, 2009 | Scott Wilson, Al Kamen
    By Scott Wilson and Al Kamen Washington Post Staff Writers Wednesday, March 25, 2009 The Obama administration appears to be backing away from the phrase "global war on terror," a signature rhetorical legacy of its predecessor. In a memo e-mailed this week to Pentagon staff members, the Defense Department's office of security review noted that "this administration prefers to avoid using the term 'Long War' or 'Global War on Terror' [GWOT.] Please use 'Overseas Contingency Operation.' " The memo said the direction came from the Office of Management and Budget, the executive-branch agency that reviews the public testimony of administration...

    Leaders of a House committee said Tuesday that U.S. diplomats in Libya made repeated requests for increased security for the consulate in Benghazi and were turned down by officials in Washington. In a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Chairman Darrell Issa and Rep. Jason Chaffetz said their information came from "individuals with direct knowledge of events in Libya." Issa, R-Calif., and Chaffetz, R-Utah, said the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans was the latest in a long line of attacks on Western diplomats and officials in Libya in the...

    Tammy Duckworth, a Democratic candidate for Congress in Illinois, warns that racism is to blame for Muslim acts of terror around the world. “Muslims wouldn’t have to riot, blow up buildings or behead anyone if we’d follow a few simple steps to allay their fears,” a hijab-wearing Duckworth contended. “For example, if women would just cover their hair they wouldn’t be seen as whores by Muslim men. The men wouldn’t be enticed and the women wouldn’t be raped.” “It’s also a matter of respect to show sensitivity for others’ religious beliefs,” Duckworth added. “According to the Quran, Muslims are required...

    According To This Army Document, Tea Partiers And Twitter Users Are Potential Terrorists Geoffrey IngersollOctober 3, 2012 Words like 'terrorist' can always be turned around depending on who is the "authority." In the case of documents acquired by Spencer Ackerman of Wired's Danger Room, the U.S. Army takes a very liberal approach to it's definition of possible insider threats. As Ackerman said about the Army's Asymmetric Warfare Group's "Threat Indicator Card": [The document's] “indicators” of radicalization are vague enough to include both benign behaviors that lots of people safely exhibit and, on the other end of the spectrum, signs that...
