    The Islamophobic industry deals in a dictatorship of thought, and here is the blunt, inescapable fact: Shariah by any other name is censorship. Intellectual terrorism precedes and follows jihad in London, Brussels, Fort Hood and Orlando “If I send you a machinegun and tell you it is a baby carriage, and I send it to you wheel by wheel and nut by nut and you do not know until you have assembled the thing that it is a machinegun and not a baby carriage,” that is exactly what has happened to this country. We are being sold machineguns without knowing...

    The more we boast about how calm, tough and united we are, the more we prove it is not so. The official response to Wednesday's events looked like panic and over-reaction to me Just as in the days after Diana died, we have become a nation of unreasoning weepers, laying flowers, lowering flag and lighting candles, and congratulating ourselves on how wonderful we are, while not thinking at all.... I suspect there is a large minority, perhaps a majority, gritting its teeth and stifling dissent-for fear that a temporary dictatorship of grief will punish them...... ...many of these actions are...

    Have you heard the term “international Terrorism” yet? It’s the new phrase that seems to have been simultaneously adopted around the world by all Western governments and the MSM. You can read it in NBC, Reuters, Washington Post. You can hear it from police forces, politicians and even the British Prime Minister. Yet a short time ago, this phrase was only used in legal circles to define something very specific. Why is it just gaining prominence now, why is replacing the term Islamic terrorism, and how and why did “The World” get this coordinated? International Terrorism is defined as “terrorism...

    Poland's prime minister drew a link on Thursday between an attack in London targeting the British parliament and the European Union's migrant policy, saying the assault vindicated Warsaw's refusal to take in refugees. Poland's right-wing, eurosceptic government has refused to accept any of the 6,200 migrants allocated to it under the European Union's quota scheme that is designed to share the burden of taking in the large numbers of migrants and refugees who have come to Europe over the past two years. "I hear in Europe very often: do not connect the migration policy with terrorism, but it is impossible...

Stabbed by a knife, rammed with a car, flung, broken, into the Thames, life bleeding out on the curb. And the news came thick and fast.

And this is only going to put wind in the sails of those who would say that this is an issue that needs to be looked at, that needs to be examined in terms of refugees.”

He was given a rather lengthy jail term but he’s due to be released in December 2020. So what happens then?

    For the second time in just over two months, a judge has blocked President Trump's travel ban executive orders. Forget for a moment that in each case, the court has cleverly stayed away from the actual law and the Constitution and instead has focused on things Trump said as a candidate to determine some mysterious intent. Many have asked why he can't simply ignore the rulings as Zero did on occasion. And the answer is very clear: Trump's hold on the Presidency is tenuous. He is in a race (which, so far, he is winning) to improve the economy and...

A ruling by a federal judge in Hawaii Wednesday resulted in a temporary restraining order nationwide, hours before it was set to go into effect. In a decision published Thursday morning, another federal judge in Maryland specifically blocked the 90-day ban on immigration for citizens of six Muslim-majority countries.

    A U.S. visa program designed to temporarily admit religious workers from other countries may be letting jihadists into the country, security experts and religious leaders warn. The R visa program is for non-immigrant clerics and religious workers and allows successful applicants to stay in the U.S. for up to five years. They are then allowed to apply for a permanent residency under their R-1 status. But some critics say the visa raises red flags and has long been abused by leaders with extreme views.

    For David Ignatius, what is an acceptable number of terrorists and terrorist attacks in the United States? The question arises because on today’s Morning Joe, Ignatius, of the Washington Post, was discussing the Trump admin statement that since 9/11, 300 people admitted from countries on the reissued executive order have been subject to “criminal, counter-terrorism investigations.” Sniffed Ignatius: that’s a “tiny number.” Really? If those 300 had not been caught up in counter-terrorism investigations, how many would have carried out terrorist attacks? If only 1-in-20 had, that would be 15 terrorist attacks. Fifteen San Bernadinos, Pulses. Even one. Tiny? View...

    In case you haven’t noticed, the global jihadist insurgency has entered a new, more dangerous phase in the past two years. The number of jihadis and the number of attacks that they have carried out–as well as the number of casualties they have inflicted and the number of countries they operate in–has grown drastically. The excellent, private IntelCenter organization estimates that the Islamic State has killed 18,000 people in 28 countries since they declared their Caliphate on 29 June 2014. This includes individual acts of jihad carried out in this country in places like Orlando, Chattanooga, Boston, Garland, San Bernardino,...

    A major new study has revealed terror attacks in the UK have more than tripled in the last five years. The shocking report also reveals that Islamist-related offences have doubled in the last five years, while the rate of beheadings and stabbings has increased eleven-fold. London and Birmingham have been identified as housing the most offenders, with East London home to half of London-based offenders (22 per cent overall), the most common boroughs being Tower Hamlets, Newham and Waltham Forest. The study identifies all Islamism-inspired terrorism convictions and suicide attacks in the UK between 1998 and 2015. The 1,000-pg report,...

The executions were a further break with the moratorium on executions the country had observed between 2006 and 2014. Momani told the official Petra news agency that 10 of those put to death had been convicted of terrorism offenses, while five were convicted of crimes including rape and sexual assault.

    The Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) is a partnership between local police and the FBI aimed at uncovering and preventing terrorist plots before they happen. Last week the city of San Francisco announced it was suspending its cooperation with the JTTF. From Fox News: “In my opinion, the decision by the mayor and the police chief to withdraw the San Francisco Police Department from the JTTF is really narrow-minded,” said Mark Rossini, a retired FBI special agent, and founding executive of the National Counterterrorism Center, who served as a representative to the CIA’s Counterterrorist Center. “Politics aside, and the mayor...
