  • Cut The Crap - Islamic Terrorism

    Cut The Crap -- Islamic Terrorism There is this ugly and pervasive "political" view that Islamic Terrorism is some "new thing." It usually comes with some line of crap about how we've "created" these monsters by invading their nations and displacing "their" people, and that "we" (the western world generally) are responsible. This is a bald lie. Islamic terrorism dates back centuries. It was a problem in the form of piracy and slavery in the early days of our Republic -- long before we had a military that could invade anything. The "big lie" is proved again in the present...

    Geller Report ^ | 5/23/17 | Pamela Geller
    The lawyers for the Michigan FGM doctors charged with performing the barbaric procedures on young Muslim girls are saying these Muslim doctors are not guilty and are being persecuted because of their religion. Under Islamic law (sharia), they are not guilty. Under Western law, they are monsters. One of the girls told FBI investigators that she screamed out in pain during the procedure, while another young girl said she couldn’t walk for a few days after having her clitoris mutilated. The doctors claimed they didn’t cut the clitorises, but nicked them instead. It’s a distinction without difference. Perhaps they are...
  • Man held by authorities spotted at Bataclan band concert venue (Spain April 2017 article)

    ...Close to a year later on September 10, the US rock group [Eagles of Death Metal] played at the Apolo concert hall in Barcelona. Under high alert, police stopped a Moroccan man in front of the hall and asked him for his ID, said a spokesman for police in the northeastern region of Catalonia where Barcelona is located. He told AFP that on identifying him, police discovered alleged links to people involved in the Brussels airport and metro attacks last year that left 32 people dead and more than 320 wounded. The attacks were led by an Islamic State cell...

    Egypt referred 48 suspected Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists believed to have been involved in several fatal church bombings to the country’s military judiciary, Egypt’s chief prosecutor said Sunday. Egypt declared a state of emergency after ISIS militants bombed two churches in Alexandria and Tanta on Palm Sunday, killing nearly 50 people, The New York Times reports. The April attacks followed one from Cairo in December that ended the lives of over 25 members of Egypt’s Coptic Christian minority. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks. Public prosecutor Nabil Sadek revealed Sunday that some of the suspects being held for alleged involvement in the recent...

    President Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner personally called the CEO of Lockheed Martin during a meeting with a Saudi delegation earlier this month to ask her to cut the price of a missile defense system, The New York Times reported Thursday. The call was part of Kushner's effort to secure a roughly $110 billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia before Trump's scheduled trip to the kingdom on Friday.  During the meeting with the delegation, Kushner determined that cost could prohibit the Saudis from purchasing a THAAD missile defense system, which is designed to shoot down intermediate-range ballistic missiles.

    ...Saudi Arabia has, for decades, been making investments of a different sort—those aimed at influencing Indonesian culture and religion. The king’s current visit is the apex of that methodical campaign, and “has the potential to accelerate the expansion of Saudi Arabia’s cultural resources in Indonesia,” .. Since 1980, Saudi Arabia has devoted millions of dollars to exporting its strict brand of Islam, Salafism, to historically tolerant and diverse Indonesia. It has built more than 150 mosques (albeit in a country that has about 800,000), a huge free university in Jakarta, and several Arabic language institutes; supplied more than 100 boarding...

    The current military culture values enemy lives above those of U.S. troops ANALYSIS/OPINION: Donald Trump and James Mattis came to office vowing to “win” America’s wars again. But unless they change our politically correct military culture, it is certain America won’t. With Thursday night’s cruise missile strikes in Syria, the United States is facing down the barrel of another war in the Middle East. But as President Trump and congressional leadership weigh the risks on an expanded, messy conflict, possibly including U.S. ground forces, they also ought to examine whether a military plagued by overlawyering has what it takes to...

    Two policemen have been wounded in a shooting on the Champs Elysees in Paris, French media say. Some reports say the gunman who fired on them has been killed by police. The Champs Elysees has been sealed off. France goes to the polls on Sunday in the first round of the presidential election. There is no word on the identity of the gunman. Jihadism is a major issue in the vote after attacks claimed by so-called Islamic State.

    MSNBC terrorism analyst Malcolm Nance posted a call on Twitter Tuesday for the terrorist group ISIS to bomb a Trump building in Turkey. Nance has since deleted the tweet, which was first reported on by the Washington Free Beacon. Nance’s statement read, “This is my nominee for first ISIS suicide bombing of a Trump property” and referenced a tweet that featured a photo of Trump Tower in Istanbul, Turkey that accused President Donald Trump of using U.S. foreign policy to enrich himself. The Washington Times reported that as of late Wednesday morning there was no apology from Nance for his...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Laura Poitras' travel nightmare began more than a decade ago when the award-winning filmmaker started getting detained at airports every time she tried to set foot back in the United States. She was stopped without explanation more than 50 times on foreign travel, and dozens more times on domestic trips, before the extra searches suddenly stopped in 2012. Only now is Poitras beginning to unravel the mystery, which goes back to a bloody day in Baghdad in 2004. Time after time, airport authorities searched her baggage, rummaged through her electronics and quizzed her for hours about her...
  • Graphic Fail: USA Today Thought MOAB Was Almost As Destructive as Hiroshima A-Bomb

    On Thursday, the U.S. military dropped a MOAB (Mother Of All Bombs) on an ISIS tunnel complex in Nangahar Province in Afghanistan. Shortly after that, USA Today posted a breathtakingly ignorant graphic purporting to show that the MOAB contained over 70 percent of the destructive force of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, Japan. This epic fail occurred even though the following comparison was known early on: The MOAB has the force of 11 tons of TNT. For comparison, the bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945 had the force of 15 thousand tons of TNT. The destructive force of the...

    A simple news segment about the media coverage of Syria spun wildly out of control during Sunday’s Reliable Sources on CNN. It started with Foreign Correspondent Lara Setrakian noting how little coverage the Syrian civil war received in the early years. But it ending with Jeremy Scahill, co-founder of The Intercept, going off the rails and declaring that “We need to understand the historical context of how a butcher like Assad actually has more in common with someone like Dick Cheney than he does with the average Syrian…” Scahill’s inane tirade derailed the whole segment from the moment he opened...

    ISIS jihadis have reportedly launched an attack on a Syrian Arab Army (SAA) base just 20 miles away from the air base targeted by US president Donald Trump. Trump’s strikes saw 59 Tomahawk missiles rain down on the airbase – believed to have been used for chemical weapon attacks by the Syrian government which killed at least 80 people. ISIS, also known as Daesh, has attempted to take advantage of the chaos caused by the President’s strikes, launching a powerful offensive on a military base in Al Furqlus, pro-Syrian news site Al-Masdar claimed. Homs governor Talal Barazi claimed the airbase...

    he View, the show started off with a fiery exchange over the U.S. missile strike in Syria last night. The panel was strictly divided, with conservative hosts Paula Faris and Jedediah Bila fiercely disagreeing with liberal hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin that the missile strike was unconstitutional. Bila began by saying she was “proud” of President Trump for taking action when President Obama did not. Joy Behar took issue with this, saying that Obama tried to take action but couldn’t get congressional approval. Bila shot back quickly, when you’re president, “the buck stops with you.”Sunny Hostin jumped in to...

    One of my favorite movies is “Dave” starring Kevin Kline and Sigourney Weaver. You might remember the plot…the sitting president needed a body double, well, for some nefarious reason, but Kline’s character bore an exact resemblance. When the actual president suffered a massive stroke, the powers that be decided to keep the common man, Dave, in the position to avoid causing a national stir. Actually, it was all about a power hungry chief of staff who saw an opening for himself. But what was engaging about the film was that an everyday fella, who worked at a job placement firm,...

After a 10-year prison term, Odeh was freed in a prison swap with Palestinians.

    President Donald Trump granted the U.S. military more flexibility in conducting operations in Somalia on Wednesday, declaring the country a "war zone" and easing restrictions that protect civilians. Parts of Somalia have been declared areas of "active hostilities" under a directive Trump signed Wednesday, the New York Times reported. The directive would mean rules that require interagency approval of air strikes no longer apply in those targeted areas, and targets would no longer have to pose a direct threat to American lives. These rules, put in place under President Barack Obama in 2013, also required that strikes would have a...

    According to an affidavit in support of the criminal complaint, Majid Al Mashhadani, brother of Yousif Al Mashhandani and Hasan, admitted in 2005 to kidnapping and holding a U.S. citizen and others hostage for months. The three defendants are permanent residents living in the U.S. since 2008. When they applied to become naturalized citizens, none disclosed their relationship with Majid Al Mashhadani. They eventually told the FBI that they left out that relationship in the application to not jeopardize their admittance as refugees.
