    First off, let me explain to you the difference between the Kurds in Syria and the Kurds in Iraq. The Kurds in Iraq are truly good people and they are extremely tough fighters. I love the Kurds in Iraq. The ones in Syria? Not so much. They are communists. Guess which one has a brand spanking new LGBT fighting unit? You got it… the commies. They have formed to fight ISIS there, which is a good thing, except there are no ‘good’ guys here. Sigh. The Queer Insurrection and Liberation Army, or TQILA is taking aim at the Jihadists. I’m...

Additionally, Democratic senators are delaying confirmation of Mark Green, Trump's pick to head the U.S. Agency for International Development who has broad bipartisan...

Why? Obviously to kill Jews or other Israelis — in what...

    FGM defender decries an “outright attack on this particular set of Muslims.” On July 19, U.S. District Court Judge Bernard Friedman denied bail for Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, a physician, as the Detroit Free Press reported, “accused of cutting the genitals of two Minnesota girls as part of a religious procedure.” According to the court, Nagarwala may have subjected as many as 100 girls to the procedure over the last 12 years. Prosecutors also accuse co-defendant Dr. Fakhruddin Attar of letting Nagarwala use his clinic for the genital mutilation, with his wife Farida Attar “holding the girls’ hands during the procedures.”...

    For every person lauding President Donald Trump's efforts to "Make America Great Again," another soul is staring into the depths of despair. The U.S. president certainly has his detractors—but his latest critics are an unlikely bunch: jihadis in Africa. In a new propaganda video, the Al-Qaeda affiliate Al-Shabab referred to Trump as a “brainless billionaire who’s single handedly succeeded in making the United States the greatest joke on Earth.” Al-Shabab has been battling the Western-backed Somali government for more than a decade. Recent data revealed that the group is  one of the deadliest in Africa.
