    “ALHAMDULILAH, by the greatest blessings of God, we are overjoyed to announce the birth of our beloved new baby son, Aidan.” I sincerely celebrated the good news, deferred to social media etiquette and clicked “like” on my friend’s post.

    French investigators said Monday they were skeptical about claims of responsibility for Sunday's attack on a Paris Jewish center by an unknown Islamic group. The group, Jamaat Ansar Al-Jihad, issued a claim of responsibility Sunday evening on the Islamic Web site known for militant Islamic comment. The message said the attack was "in response to racist acts by Jews in France against Islam and the Muslims and the desecration of Muslim cemeteries by Jews". "It is also meant ... as a simple response to the racist and savage acts by Jews in Muslim countries like Palestine and other Muslim and...
