  • As Pakistan Marks 70 Years Of Independence, Its Minorities Struggle For Space

    08/14/2017 11:40:18 AM PDT · by BenLurkin · 7 replies
    The children pile into the stadium in shiny clothes, clutching green-and-white Pakistani flags. Their parents light the area with cell phones to record the event as they scream, chant and cheer, watching soldiers close a gate that separates India from Pakistan. In the evening ritual at the Wagah-Attari border, near Lahore and Amritsar, soldiers from both countries high-kick, shake their fists, then shake hands – and slam the gate shut. It is deeply visceral for many Pakistanis: an acknowledgement of their border, of a plucky country they feel they have sacrificed so much to create. Pakistan was imagined more than...

    Dr. Sebastian Gorka, White House deputy advisor on national security, was questioned Tuesday on MSNBC about his insistence on the use of the term “radical Islamic terrorism.” Sebastian Gorka Decimates MSNBC Over Term 'Radical Islamic Terrorism' “I don’t understand how calling it by its name helps stop the attacks in Paris or in Belgium or in London,” MSNBC’s Ali Velshi said to Gorka. "So If you, God forbid, caught cancer, and the hospital was forbidden from calling it cancer and said, 'you have the flu, go home and hydrate and some take aspirins,' would you actually have the right treatment?"...

Raymond Dehn, who is also a State Representative, is running against current mayor Betsy Hodges in this fall’s election, according to Fox9. He said, “Officers don’t need to carry guns on their person all the time…I’m not saying they don’t have access to that, just like they have access to more lethal weapons in their cars, I would believe they would still have access to their guns in their...

Titled "What to do if you are witnessing Islamophobic harassment," the posters encourage people to engage with the person who is being targeted and to draw attention away from the harasser. The technique is called "non-complementary behavior," and...

    The hijabbed feminist heroine Linda Sarsour is in the center of another controversy, and the Leftist establishment media is again rushing to defend her. This time, she called for “jihad” against President Trump. The whole controversy, says Sarsour and her defenders, is just another indication of conservatives’ ignorance and “Islamophobia.” But it isn’t: she really did incite violence. Sarsour’s call for jihad came in the midst of her denunciation of the Trump administration at the annual convention of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) over the July 4 weekend. Sarsour said : Why, sisters and brothers, why are...

    It's an expensive thorn-in-the-side to the Castro regime. The moozlem prisoners cost a million bucks apiece per year to incarcerate. Rent is $5k/yr. I say turn it into a penal colony and staff it with foreign guards, including Cubans. Put those land mines back into place that Bill Clinton removed without reciprocation-the Cubans have their own mines still there. Prisoners can be the illegals(ms-13 types) waiting to finish out there terms in the continental US. Bring the navy ships and their families back home. Trump can thereby DEAL with the next Government for total withdrawal. The moozlems? Build the same...
