    An effective way to fight terrorism...let the terrorists know that when they are killed committing an act of terrorism, their bodies will be covered with pig skins and buried for eternity covered in pig skin. Maybe even with a pig's genitalia placed inside their mouth and sewn shut. And remind them that no virgins will want anything to do with them after that.......

    Page 24 of the 28 Pages report discusses Osama bin Laden’s half-brother and says in part: According to the FBI. Abdullah Bin Ladin has a number of connections to terrorist organizations. He is the President and Director of the World Arab Muslim Youth Association (WAMY) and the Institute of Islamic and Arabic Science in America. Both organizations are local branches of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) based in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. According to the FBI, there is reason to believe that WAMY is “closely associated with the funding and financing of international terrorist activities and in the past has provided logistical support...

    Newt Gingrich defended himself Friday over comments on Muslims that the White House panned as "un-American," arguing President Obama wasn't qualified to criticize him. "Obama's attack on me would be more impressive if he had ANY plan to defeat Islamic supremacist," the former GOP Speaker tweeted. "8 years of failure disqualify him as a critic." Gingrich in another tweet accused the president of "risking American lives" while criticizing the Obama administration's plans to vet Syrian refugees being relocated into the U.S. Gingrich, who was in the spotlight this week as a potential running mate for GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump,...

As we put more pressure on them in Iraq and Syria, they’ll have a greater incentive to conduct attacks, inspire attacks because they want to show they’re still relevant. And as we’re more successful in Iraq and...

    In the last few years, one country in Europe – Switzerland – has offered lessons in how to deal with Muslims that other Western countries might do well to emulate. For the Swiss have taken a tough line on those Muslims living in their country who have been unwilling to adapt to Swiss ways. Swiss authorities have been requiring Muslims to comply not just with Swiss laws, but with Swiss customs, and imposing stiff fines and other penalties for the failure to observe the country’s social norms. And that’s not all: they’ve banned the minaret, and may soon ban the...

    Here is a sampling of some recent news abroad: A Russian guard attacked a U.S. diplomatic official at the door to the American Embassy in Moscow, even as NATO leaders met to galvanize against the next act of Russian aggression. The Islamic State continued its global terrorist rampage with horrific attacks in Baghdad and Istanbul. Iran rebuffed United Nations warnings and defiantly boasted that it will continue testing ballistic missiles. German intelligence believes that Iran, empowered by the release of $100 billion in impounded cash, is violating its recent American-led nonproliferation deal in an effort to import nuclear bomb-making technology....

    All available evidence suggests that when Micah Johnson sniped police officers in downtown Dallas on Thursday, he intended it as a political act. During the ensuing standoff, he told police negotiators that he was angry about the recent apparently unwarranted killings of black men by police, and “stated he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers,” according to Dallas Police Chief David Brown. Johnson could not have reasonably believed that he’d shoot enough cops to actually diminish the capacity of law enforcement agencies to unjustifiably kill black people. He did it to send a message, to arbitrarily terrorize cops...

Four policemen and one transit officer were killed, and six additional police were wounded. No analysis of this atrocity would be complete...

One is said to be from Russia's North Caucasus region and the others from Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan. Turkey believes so-called Islamic State (IS) was behind the suicide gun and bomb attack that left 43 people dead and 230 injured at Ataturk airport. Police detained at least 13 suspects in Istanbul and more in Izmir on Thursday.

    HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Governor Dannel Malloy is asking gun sellers, both in-state and out of state, to voluntarily stop selling semi-automatic weapons on Father’s Day, June 19th. Malloy asks sellers to do this as a sign of respect to the fathers and parents who lost children in the Orlando nightclub shooting. “We are calling on Connecticut gun sellers to avoid all semi-automatic weapons sales on Father’s Day for one reason. We should show respect, through a symbolic gesture, to those who’ve lost loved ones in Orlando,” Gov. Malloy said. Since 2013, Connecticut has prohibited the AR-15 and the Sig...

    President Obama had delivered some version of this address at least nine times before — a fact he made clear in Orlando on Thursday. This time Obama, in remarks that were brief, blunt and starkly political, focused on what all of those killings had in common. This was a president who was fed up. His goal was not to inspire, but to demand change. “Those who were killed and injured here were gunned down by a single killer with a powerful assault weapon,” Obama said.” The motives of this killer may have been different than the mass shooters in Aurora...

Then there was Tashfeen Malik, the obedient jihadist Bonnie Parker, who helped her husband Syed Farook gun down fourteen in San Bernardino.

    What difference does it make to use the phrase “radical Islam?” It means in the Orlando case that the terrorist is identified through his affiliation with a particular religion that sanctions death for homosexuals. It also means in the Orlando case that law enforcement authorities may get the idea or impression from the President of the United States that the religion of a suspect is NOT to be judged or pursued when questions emerge about Muslims having links to terrorism. As a result of this mindset, the FBI let a faithful follower of Islam, who regularly attended a mosque, murder...

There are 38 countries in the visa waiver program and each of them has agreed to grant the U.S. access to data on stolen or lost passports, on criminal history of would-be travelers, and on terrorism risks. But while all countries share passport data, a third don’t report criminal history and a third fail to share their terrorism and national security records, the...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Obama administration is running out of time and options to close the Guantanamo Bay detention center in Cuba, so officials are scrambling to release as many prisoners as possible and considering novel legal strategies that include allowing some men to strike plea deals by video-teleconference and sending others to foreign countries to be prosecuted. But it looks to be little, too late to close the prison before President Barack Obama leaves office in January, denying him the chance to fulfill a campaign pledge.

    A smuggling network has managed to sneak illegal immigrants from Middle East terrorism hotbeds straight to the doorstep of the U.S., including helping one Afghan man authorities say was part of an attack plot in North America. Immigration officials have identified at least a dozen Middle Eastern men smuggled into the Western Hemisphere by a Brazilian-based network that connected them with Mexicans who guided them up to the U.S. border, according to internal government documents reviewed by The Washington Times. Those smuggled included Palestinians, Pakistanis and the Afghan man who Homeland Security officials said had family ties to the Taliban...

    TERROR Life sentences upheld for brothers convicted in terror plot Published June 01, 2016 Associated Press CAMDEN, N.J. – A federal judge has ruled against three immigrant brothers seeking to overturn their life sentences for plotting to kill U.S. soldiers at Fort Dix, New Jersey. U.S. District Judge Robert Kugler ruled that he didn't buy the arguments from Dritan (DRY'-tahn), Eljvir (EL'-veer) and Shain Duka (DOO'-ka) that they were wrongly convicted in 2008 because their lawyers kept them from testifying. Kugler ruled Friday that he found testimony from their defense attorneys at a January hearing more credible. His decision was...

    Full title: Ret. Navy Commander: Gitmo Has Not Led to Terror Recruiting Anymore Than a Movie Caused Benghazi Attack Commander Kirk Lippold, retired from the U.S. Navy, testified in front of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Tuesday, insisting that Guantanamo Bay remain open for business. “Keeping Guantanamo open is more important now than ever,” Lippold warned. The terror detention facility, which has held almost 800 terrorist detainees since 2002 and today holds only 80, has been targeted for closure by President Obama, who argues the prison is “contrary to our values.” Other social activists have demanded the...
  • Fareed Zakaria -vs- Donald Trump Regarding Islam

    CNN broadcast a one hour special yesterday called “Why they hate us” discussing why adherents to the most authentic interpretations of Islam hate the United States. Overall, the broadcasted presentation by Fareed Zakaria was good; actually, very good. Perhaps one of the best one hour presentations in quite a while. The content was engaging, the historical references were well presented and well outlined…. until a fatal flaw. The common, disconcerting and uncomfortable fatal flaw.
