    Animalistic ISIS jihadists turned a fuzzy little pooch into a suicide bomber, but the cute dog survived thanks to several warm-hearted Iraqis, according to a new video. The shocking footage shows three Iraqi soldiers in the fight against the Islamic State bent over the puppy strapped with four bottles containing explosives with electrical wires attached. As they defuse the miniature bomb vest, the soldiers turn to the camera and discuss ISIS’ suicide attacks while petting the frightened pooch. The device was disarmed before it could explode and cause injuries or death.

    George W. Bush said he favored a welcoming immigration policy and warned that the media is "indispensable to democracy" in an interview with Matt Lauer Monday that seemed to take several shots at President Trump. When Lauer asked Bush directly if he was for or against Trump's immigration ban, Bush said, "I am for an immigration policy that's welcoming and upholds the law." "I think it's very important for all of us to recognize that one of our great strengths is for people to be able to worship the way they want to, or not worship at all," Bush said....

Originally published by the Gatestone Institute.Raymond Ibrahim is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center.

One Christian man, Esam, from Qaraqosh, related what ISIS did after his sister's husband refused to convert to Islam: "He was crucified and tortured in front...

    Officials in President Trump’s administration Friday downplayed an intelligence report by the Homeland Security Department that contradicts the White House’s main argument for implementing a travel ban on seven predominantly Muslim countries. The report, which was viewed by The Wall Street Journal and Associated Press, determined that the "country of citizenship is unlikely to be a reliable indicator of potential terrorist activity."

    It seems evident that there is a problem, until last couple years it was unknown or at least unreported. There is an apparent disdain within Islam for women. This disdain is not only seen in the way they treat women as property to be bought and sold, or even the sex slave passages in the Quran.The biggest indication of this comes from the fact that Islamic men are prone to rap. This is seen in almost every place that the Islamic asylum seeker goes. Further, it should be pointed out that this holds true for every point of origin.Whether he...

The Obama administration tried to deport her for lying about her terrorist past — and the saga is currently playing out in the US legal system.

    A European nation becomes a rape capital -- due to its immigration policies. Sweden is the rape capital of the Western world. The general public is unaware of the epidemic of Swedish rapes because there has been an orchestrated effort by mainstream media and the Swedish government to deliberately mischaracterize offenders and downplay the number of incidents. The significant increase in rapes are the direct result of Sweden's open door refugee policy and denial of Muslim culture. Muslim immigrant rapists believe that all non-Muslim and uncovered women can be lawfully taken for sexual use; hence rape and sexual assaults are...

    The Islamic State group on Monday claimed responsibility for a suicide attack near Mosul it said was carried out by a British suicide bomber, the SITE Intelligence Group reported. “The martyrdom-seeking brother Abu Zakariya al-Britani — may Allah accept him — detonated his explosives-laden vehicle on a headquarters of the Rafidhi army and its militias in Tal Kisum village, southwest of Mosul,” the claim quoted by SITE said. The ISIS statement did not say when the bombing occurred. Abu Zakariya al-Britani was identified by BBC as Ronald Fiddler, a Brit who was seized by US forces in Afghanistan and taken...

    The Danish government has been inadvertently paying benefits to citizens fighting for the Islamic State in Syria, Danish officials said Tuesday, as outrage grows that militants are manipulating the country’s generous welfare system. About 145 Danes have traveled to Syria or Iraq to fight for militant groups since 2012, according to the Danish security and intelligence services. Officials said this week that they had identified a number of Danish citizens who, while receiving government disability pensions, had traveled to Syria to join the Islamic State, also known as ISIS. “It is a huge scandal that we are paying out money...

    Two days after President Donald Trump was eviscerated by both the mainstream media and Swedish officials for his comments indicating Sweden was having a problem with its generous refugee policies, riots erupted in the country. Mr. Trump was largely mocked for the comments he made at a Florida rally over the weekend, where he used Sweden has an example to justify his extreme vetting policy. “We’ve got to keep our country safe,” Mr. Trump said at the rally. “You look at what’s happening in Germany. You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this? Sweden....

    A British Islamic State fighter who carried out a suicide bombing in Iraq this week is a former Guantanamo Bay detainee who was paid £1 million compensation by the government. Jamal al-Harith, a Muslim convert born Ronald Fiddler who detonated a car bomb at an Iraqi army base near Mosul, was released from the US detention camp in 2004 and successfully claimed compensation after saying British agents knew or were complicit in his mistreatment. He was freed following intense lobbying by Tony Blair’s Labour government.Al-Harith, who used the nom de guerre Abu-Zakariya al-Britani, entered Syria via Turkey in 2014 to...

    MK Yoel Hasson (Zionist Union) posted on his Twitter account an alleged resignation letter from Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in which he stepped down from the premiership. The resignation was a forged letter, based on the letter with Netanyahu's resignation from heading the Communication Ministry, submitted to the Cabinet on Sunday. Hasson wrote above the picture of the letter: "Why just the communications portfolio? Here @Netanyahu, I arranged it for you. All that's left is to send it." The Prime Minister's Office reacted angrily to the fake letter of resignation. The Cabinet Secretary submitted a request to the Attorney General...

    The US can give the boot to virtually every illegal immigrant in the country, and those caught crossing the southern border will be busted or sent packing, according to memos issued Tuesday by the Department of Homeland Security. The new rules reflect the Trump Administration’s get-tough stance on illegals and are an about-face from the Obama administration’s “catch and release” policy — which let non-criminal undocumented immigrants remain in the US even after being caught. The memos put into practice policies outlined in two executive orders President Trump signed last month. “The Department no longer will exempt classes or categories...

    President Trump has confirmed that retired Lt. General H.R. McMaster is his new choice to be his National Security Adviser. Score one from the swamp. A source that has asked to remain anonymous for fear of reprisals has informed me that he was present in August 2014 when McMaster was the featured speaker for the President's Lecture Series at National Defense University in Washington, D.C. McMaster addressed an assembly of all the students in the colleges of the National Defense, including the National War College, the College of International Security Affairs (CISA), the Dwight D. Eisenhower School for National Security...

    The scenes took place just hours after the country’s Prime Minister, Stefan Löfven, slammed Donald Trump for claiming Sweden was in crisis as a result of its liberal refugee policy. Stockholm police were forced to fire a shot into the crowd in the hard-hit suburb of Rinkeby, after a mob of around 30 began attacking officers with rocks. Violence erupted after the police had tried to arrest a wanted person on the subway. Sylvia Odin, of the Stockholm police, said: “There was stone throwing and they were placed in a situation where a number of people jointly attacked and threw...

    As we reported last night, just days after the media mocked Trump for his allegations of major problems with Swedish migrant policies, the president was vindicated after a violent riot broke out in the borough of Rinkeby, also known as "little Mogadishu." Now that the incident is over, in their "post-mortem" Swedish officials confirm that riots erupted in the "heavily immigrant Stockholm suburb" Monday night, as masked looters set cars ablaze and threw rocks at cops, injuring one police officer, Swedish officials said.   The violence erupted just days after President Trump was ridiculed during a Saturday campaign rally...

    Candidate Donald Trump set off a furious controversy when he said NATO countries should pay their "fair share" of mutual defense costs and, later, that the treaty organization was "obsolete" because not enough of its efforts were directed against radical Islamic terrorism. On Monday, Vice President Mike Pence took the Trump message to NATO headquarters in Brussels. And after all the controversy and complaining, NATO's response could be boiled down to a single sentence: Yes sir, Mr. Trump.

    Mike Barnicle, of all people, set the tone for the opening segment of today’s Morning Joe, exclaiming “thank you, Jesus” in response to President Trump’s pick of H.R. McMaster to take over from Michael Flynn as National Security Adviser. The segment was one belated Valentines Day bouquet of praise of McMaster, coming from members of the panel itself as well as in quotes from a bi-partisan array that included several critics of the president, notably including John McCain. Perhaps even more significant than the accolades for McMaster was the suggestion that his selection reflected well on President Trump himself. View...
