    Protesters in Dearborn, Michigan, shouted "Death to America!" and "Death to Israel!" during an International Al-Quds Day rally held in the town.

Bazzi’s comments were followed by crowds chanting "Death to America!" in the background. Bazzi reasoned that the rallies held on...

    The United Nations Security Council approved a resolution Monday calling for an “immediate cease-fire” in Israel’s war against Hamas in the Gaza Strip. The resolution passed the Security Council 14-0, with the US abstaining and declining to exercise its veto power. The measure calls for a pause in the fighting to last through the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which ends April 9, as well as the unconditional release of hostages taken in the Oct. 7 Hamas attack in the Gaza Strip. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had demanded the US veto the cease-fire resolution, threatening to cancel plans to...

    “Quite interesting was that one of those assailants that participated this Friday in the attack on the concert thing was there on 7 March and photographed by one of the security staff there. They matched that up and it looks a little bit as if maybe the act was intended for 8 March, when a very famous singer, Shaman, was due to sing. An icon of Russian nationalism, he’s famous for his rendition of the national anthem. It really is striking if you ever listen to it, anyway what happened was that at the time the son of the owner...

    Another Ramadan is upon us, and as is always the case, the eager-to-be-fooled infidels are out in force. A Catholic diocese in Italy has just called upon priests and laypeople to seek out opportunities to participate in Ramadan observances, as a gesture of goodwill toward Muslims. When will Muslim leaders tell Muslims to participate in Christian worship to show friendship with Christians? Don’t hold your breath. The Catholic Herald reported Friday that the Italian diocese of Bergamo is “instructing its priests to participate in Islamic rituals, citing Pope Francis’ directives on interreligious dialogue.” Diocesan officials issued a directive “urging priests...

    Frankfurt has become the first German city to hang Ramadan lights at a cost of over €50,000 euros to honor the fact that 15 per cent of its population is now Muslim.

The lights are similar to those that were displayed in London’s Piccadilly Circus last year. ... The lights are a result of lobbying from the Greens, the SPD and the ‘Green...
