    Jihadis have been circulating propaganda featuring the a picture of the US President covered in bullet holes as they urge fighters to kill him. The threats come as Trump this evening flies into the Philippines in the final stop of his tour of Asia. Security forces in the Philippines have been battling the threat of jihadis for years, with the city of Marawi being to reduced to rubble by ISIS. Terrorists have been circulating the image on encrypted messaging app Telegram – urging fighters to “lie in wait” and “ambush” the US President. Trump’s Russian opposite number Vladimir Putin also...
  • Our culture is experiencing a hostile takeover. We must stop rejecting God if we ever want it to end

    The recent Texas church shooting, the terrorist driving a truck through a crowd in New York City, and the Las Vegas massacre may seem shocking – but to anyone who has been paying attention, they should not. Our culture is undergoing a hostile takeover. American society used to be governed by Judeo-Christian do-unto-others morals. But we have drifted (been pushed, really) into a hedonistic YOLO (You Only Live Once) cultural morass. The upshot of this is a distinct lack of respect for human life in general, as well as a pervasive, insidious obsession with self. This is the “me” generation,...

    A sidebar to the story of the ISIS-affiliated Somali men convicted on terrorism charges last year in federal district court in Minneapolis: one of the men who pleaded guilty and cooperated with the prosecution had worked on the tarmac at Minneapolis–St. Paul International Airport (MSP) and could have done serious harm. So had the one who turned informant and was never charged in the case. When his FBI interlocutors persuaded him to turn, he had a question for them: “Can I get my job at the airport back?” That’s not all. In his March 29, 2016 Star Tribune story, Stephen...

    An open lecture at Scripp’s College in Southern California ignited a firestorm of anti-Muslim sentiment last month when a group in the audience challenged the lecturer about his views on Islamic terrorism and President Trump’s immigration policies. Hussam Ayloush, Executive Director of the Los Angeles chapter of the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-LA), addressed the Scripps’ audience on the subject of American-Islamic Relations and xenophobic rhetoric in the wake of the 2016 presidential election. The lecture, titled, “Muslims Not Welcome: The Political Ramifications of Islamophobia,” came as part of the school’s Tuesday Noon Academy speaker series held in conjunction with...

    What the recent political shakeup in Saudi Arabia means for global terrorism funding. Originally published by the Jerusalem Post. For 70 years, Saudi Arabia served as the largest and most significant incubator of Sunni jihad. Its Wahhabist Islamic establishment funded radical mosques throughout the world. Saudi princes have supported radical Islamic clerics who have indoctrinated their followers to pursue jihad against the non-Islamic world. Saudi money stands behind most of the radical Islamic groups in the non-Islamic world that have in turn financed terrorist groups like Hamas and al-Qaida and have insulated radical Islam from scrutiny by Western governments and...
  • No Lone Wolf in Pack of Sharia Supremacists

    The critical thing about confronting evil is to call it by its rightful name. But New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo decided to call alleged truck terrorist Sayfullo Saipov a "lone wolf." "All the evidence we have suggests that he was acting alone," said Cuomo. "The so-called 'Lone Wolf syndrome.'" Lone wolf? That's a dangerous rhetorical mistake, made by a worried politician trying to avoid reality. Saipov allegedly used a rental truck as a weapon of mass destruction on Halloween, and when it was done there were eight dead and a dozen seriously injured. He planned the attack for several weeks,...

    For anyone monitoring America’s far-right, it was only a matter of time before Devin Patrick Kelley, the man identified as the Sutherland Springs, Texas, shooter, became “antifa.” Antifa, a leftist protest movement with no organizational hierarchy whatsoever, was blamed for the mass shooting in Las Vegas by Alex Jones’ conspiracy website Info Wars. They were responsible for allegedly plotting a civil war involving supersoldiers Saturday—one that utterly failed to manifest. And on Sunday, after a man murdered at least 26 people in a Texas church, the right’s conspiracy peddlers waited only a matter of hours to try to blame the...

    To defeat Islamic terrorism, Western societies must rid counter-terrorism of the "lone wolf" mentality; acknowledge the inherently non-compromising nature of Islamic terrorism and confront Islamic rogue regimes militarily, not diplomatically Wake up America, Islamic terrorism targets you! The claim that the perpetrator of the November 1, 2017 NYC bicycle-path-terror is a “lone wolf” ignores the wider context of Islamic terrorism, oversimplifies and underestimates the threat, alleviates the pressure off anti-US Islamic rogue regimes, and derails counter-terrorism. The NYC bicycle-path-terror was carried out by a member of the Islamic “pack of wolves” - not by a “lone wolf”—which has been systematically...

    After Tuesday’s terrorist attack, the useless pols of New York quickly assembled before the cameras to recite the usual litany of politically correct talking points. Looking like a lost giraffe, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio stepped up to the microphone and said that “the last thing we should do is start casting dispersions” on Islam. That moment of illiteracy was then followed by a burst of illogic, as he argued that the proper response to Islamic terrorism in a tolerant country is even more tolerance. Another fatuous figure at the post-attack press conferences was John Miller, the NYPD’s...

    The British-born jihadi bride who was married to the most senior American member of ISIS has spoken out, revealing her new life as a suburban mom in Dallas. Tania Georgelas, 33, detailed her radicalization, her dream for her children to become terrorists and the ultimate split with her jihadi husband in a new interview with The Atlantic, released Friday. 'Our dreams were to have land of our own, raise a family and train them be assassins or whatever, soldiers, and then eventually go join the jihad,' she said of her ex-husband John Georgelas, an American-born convert to Islam who has risen to...

    The lead defense attorney for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl said he wants him to receive the Prisoner of War medal. His civilian lawyer, Eugene Fidell, on Friday said his client should be recognized for the five years he spent in Taliban captivity after deserting his post in Afghanistan, according to an article by USA Today. "We have long felt he was entitled to the POW medal," Fidell said, the newspaper reported. It wasn't immediately clear whether Bergdahl's defense team plans to push for the award as part of the process to appeal his dishonorable discharge.

    A UK pharmacist is behind bars for trying to radicalize two elementary school-aged students and showing one of them a video of an American soldier being beheaded. Zameer Ghumra was sentenced to six years in prison Friday for disseminating terrorist propaganda while trying to brainwash two young brothers into becoming Islamic State fighters. The 38-year-old worked as a pharmacist in Northamptonshire, England and was trying to set up a madrasa, an Islamic school, when he taught the two boys how to survive a bomb attack and fight with knives, The Guardian reported. “[Ghumra] had ISIS training videos and people being...

    Major American foundations have given millions of dollars in funding to Islamic organizations accused of having ties to radical Islamist movements or designated terrorist organizations and a group of activists are trying to convince them to stop. Groups like Islamic Relief Worldwide, which some countries have banned for allegedly funding Hamas and other terrorist organizations, have received millions of dollars from corporate charities like the GE Foundation, community foundations like the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, and independent foundations like George Soros’ Open Society Foundation.Researchers with the Middle East Forum, an activist group devoted to promoting American interests abroad, identified the financial...

    On terrorism, we often are fighting the last war. And sometimes the supposed solutions have nothing to do with preventing future attacks. They just give the appearance that politicians are doing something. The terror attack on Tuesday in New York City left eight dead and eleven injured after a rental truck was used to plow down people on a bike path. We are just fortunate that the killer ran into a school bus and was unable to continue his plan to hit more pedestrians on the Brooklyn Bridge.

    Hillary Clinton is speaking out against President Donald Trump's divisive reaction to the New York attack Tuesday night, accusing the commander in chief of not having "any empathy" and calling him "spiteful." [Snip] Clinton, appearing on Comedy Central's The Daily Show With Trevor Noah Wednesday night, said she was disappointed by Trump's politicized response to the tragedy, which she says is a stark contrast to the way former presidents have handled national atrocities. "It's so disappointing," Clinton said. "I was a senator for New York on 9/11. I was with President Obama through a lot of difficult decisions as...
  • How About Targeting the Demographic Most Likely to Wage Jihad?

    A Muslim immigrant stands accused of waging jihad in New York City. He is accused of spilling innocent blood on American soil in the name of Allah – in the name of the religion of peace. To be clear – I am not anti-Muslim. I am just anti-getting plowed over by a rented pickup truck on a bike path. If you believe the Democrats and the Mainstream Media, this attack had nothing to do with the suspect’s religious beliefs. But in reality the attack had everything to do with his beliefs. That’s why this heinous monster shouted “Allahu Akbar” as...

    Five of the fatalities in the terrorist truck-ramming attack in New York City on Tuesday afternoon were Argentine tourists celebrating the 30th anniversary of their high school graduation, including one Jewish businessman. At least eight people were killed and about a dozen injured when a truck rammed into a crowd on a bike path in downtown Manhattan in what Mayor Bill de Blasio called “an act of terror.” According to Argentina’s Foreign Ministry, the victims are Diego Enrique Angelini, Ariel Erlij, Hernán Diego Mendoza, Alejandro Damián Pagnucco and Hernán Ferruchi. Erlij, 48, is a Jewish steel mill owner from the...

    s this our new normal? During my FBI career as a Special Agent and ultimately Assistant Director, the FBI, police, and domestic security agencies viewed terrorist incidents through a black and white, binary lens. If we “allowed” an attack to happen, we had failed. If we prevented an attack, we had succeeded. Yet, the increase in lone wolf, soft-target attacks — particularly attacks where trucks and cars are driven into large, vulnerable crowds — can actually be viewed as a symptom of our success. The Halloween terror attack that occurred in New York City raises an important question: Do we...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Thursday the Department of Justice has active "terrorism-related investigations" into "hundreds" of refugees. Sessions made the assertion during a national security speech in New York City, detailing President Donald Trump's agenda to keep out people like the alleged attacker who earlier this week killed eight in Manhattan. "The Department currently has ongoing terrorism-related investigations against hundreds of people who came here as refugees," Sessions said Thursday. "The FBI and our officers do heroic work, but it is simply not reasonable to keep asking them for more and more without putting policies in place that make...
