    The American University of Afghanistan in Kabul is under assault, while security forces exchange gunfire with the attackers. The number of students and professors inside are unknown, as is the identity of the attackers. The U.S. State Department this morning acknowledged reports of the attack on an official Twitter account. "Reports of attack on American University in Kabul. Exercise caution, avoid unnecessary movement in the area & monitor news for updates," the agency said. Massoud Hossaini, a photographer for The Associated Press, tweeted that he is trapped inside. “Help we are stuck inside AUAF and shooting flollowed [sic] by Explo...

    Vice President Joe Biden said in an interview with the Atlantic on Monday that while “terrorism is a real threat … it’s not an existential threat to the existence of the democratic country of the United States of America.” […] “My dad used to say to me, ‘Champ, if everything is equally important to you, nothing is important to you,’” Biden said. “So the hardest thing to do, I’ve found in 44 years, is to prioritize what really are the most consequential threats and concerns, and allocate resources relative to the nature of the threat.” Biden characterized his system of...

    A week-long spate of violent attacks this summer — including two involving migrants — has triggered debate about potentially deploying troops on Germany's streets for the first time since World War II. A July 18 ax and knife attack by an ISIS-inspired 17-year-old Afghan asylum-seeker aboard a train near Wuerzburg left five people seriously injured. It also raised questions about whether new security measures were needed in Germany.

    Does it matter what our kids learn about Islam in public schools? Jenny McKeigue of Olmsted Falls, Ohio thinks so. This small town mother has battled her local school board for about four years to get them to remove parts of the curriculum that seem to promote Islam. In 2012, McKeigue learned that her son had been shown a video in his seventh grade social studies class that she considered to be blatant Muslim propaganda. The video, an episode of the discontinued "30 Days" reality TV series, featured a "regular American" (the host's terminology, not mine) spending thirty days immersing...
  • BREAKING: Wiki Leak Email Found Showing Secret Memo To Obama From ISIS

    Assange Promises To Prove She Funded And Equipped ISIS In “October Surprise” Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton continue to act clueless when it comes to ISIS. They act clueless about when they formed, where they are today, and how can we defeat them. They are lazy, but they are also severely incompetent. Last week, Donald Trump asserted that Hillary Clinton and Obama “founded ISIS.” Trump didn’t literally mean they sat down and discussed how to create this group from scratch–or did he? Trump’s statement is 100% accurate, and a leaked memo from the State Department proves it to...

Wajdi Akkari posted a video where he speaks out against a number of emojis that he believes are blasphemous, including the angel and any emojis that are “devilish.” According to the DailyMail, Akkari was born in Lebanon, moved to the US to become a rapper when he was 18, and then eventually moved to Saudi Arabia where he teaches Arabic.

    The State Department issued a warning on Monday urging U.S. citizens to avoid traveling to Iran, which has made the detention of American a priority. The latest travel advisory, which emphasizes Iran’s desire to capture U.S. citizens, comes on the heels of a growing scandal over the Obama administration’s decision to pay Iran $400 million in cash on the same day that it freed several U.S. hostages. The payment has been cast by lawmakers and others as a ransom payment and prompted increasing concern among U.S. officials that Iran is making arresting Americans a priority.

    The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has been tied to HAMAS, a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization. CAIR has also been named a terrorist organization itself by US ally the United Arab Emirates (UAE) due to the fact that it is a wing of the Muslim Brotherhood, the granddaddy of all modern Sunni Jihadist organizations. Now, CAIR is conducting “outreach” to conservative groups and a major Tea Party organization in the state of Georgia. In view of this development, we thought it important to detail CAIR’s disturbing history, members, officers and ties ahead of more of its “outreach” efforts in...

This is something that everyone already knew, but it had never been so publicly admitted.

The public admission of Turkey’s complicity in Islamic terrorism was the result of an intramural war within...

According to the Advocate, Ross said Obama’s speech wrongly switched the emphasis from the threat of radical Islam to a plea for more gun control for law-abiding citizens.

The transfer of 12 Yemenis and three Afghans from the Cuba facility to the U.A.E. leaves 61 detainees, a significant drop from the 242 men imprisoned there in 2009 when Mr. Obama took office but short of the president’s longtime goal of closing the lockup.

Martine Aubry, the mayor, and a Socialist stalwart, said that the safety of visitors could not be assured – “there are risks we cannot reduce.” By this she meant, of course, risks of an attack by Muslim terrorists. Only once before, during the goose-stepping German occupation, has La Braderie ever been called off. The cancellation of this gigantic event is a severe economic blow to those exhibitors from all over...

    Gorka explained that Trump would be right to say that Obama and Clinton "facilitated" the rise of ISIS in the Middle East with their policies. He said that ISIS now has more than 80,000 fighters and is "the most powerful jihadi insurgency the world has ever seen." "In 2008 ... ISIS didn't exist. Al Qaeda in Iraq, the forerunner of ISIS, was one regional franchise inside Iraq. When we withdrew our troops, when we started to cook the books on intelligence, as you hear from CENTCOM analysts, then we facilitated the rise of ISIS," he said, also calling out Obama...

    The Russian military has announced the delivery of new air defence missiles to Crimea, in a move scheduled before the latest tension with Ukraine. The S-400 Triumph missile systems were earmarked for troops in Crimea last month, Russian media said at the time. Moscow also announced exercises in Crimea next week to simulate an attack by weapons of mass destruction (WMD).

    Even the left-stream media is now acknowledging that Donald Trump “has a point” when he blasts Hilary and Obama for creating ISIS. “Hillary Clinton is vulnerable. ISIS did gain strength during her time as Secretary of State,” said ABC News correspondent Martha Raddatz. Conservative talk show host Hugh Hewitt tried to give Mr. Trump an out. “I know what you meant,” he suggested. “You meant that he [Obama] created the vacuum, he lost the peace."

    With an indictment unsealed last week, Israeli investigators have sounded an alarm over the illicit use of global aid money to fund Palestinian terrorism. Prosecutors in the city of Beersheba allege that Mohammed El-Halabi, Gaza Strip director of the California-based charity World Vision, transferred tens of millions of dollars to Hamas to buy weapons and build underground attack tunnels. Although World Vision denies fault, the governments of Australia and Germany have halted donations pending investigations. This revelation should spur a broader reassessment of American aid to the Palestinian government. For two decades the Palestinian government has used U.S. and other...

    Children in French schools will be taught how to survive a terror attack, following a year of Islamic terrorism that shook the nation. The French government has released a statement instructing headteachers on “enhanced measures for school safety”, which outlines new security measures including preparing school children on how to survive terrorist attacks. After the Bataclan massacre in November, the French government published several circulars advising schools on increasing security. But it was after the Nice Bastille Day attack that the Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve and Minister for Education Najat Vallaud-Belkacem signed new measures, stating that the “security of schools...

  • Finnish Official SLAMS Islam: ‘One day Europe will rise against you…’ (video)

    When it comes to politicians and Muslims, we’ve seen a lot of politically correct rump-kissing. Especially when those politicians hail from Europe (see Angela Merkel: ‘Germany is Ravaged by Terrorism… But We Want More Refugees!). That’s why this speech is refreshing, and rather entertaining. This Finnish MP has no qualms about telling it like it is. The result? Pure awesome. "Especially you migrants, and Muslims, I know you. I lived in your country for 10 years, and have seen how cruel, arrogant, and stupid you are. You don’t respect your women. You force them to be your slaves. You are...

Relations between Russia and Britain are strained by differences over Ukraine and Syria as well as by what London says is a sharp increase in flights by long-range Russian bombers...
