    American ^ | December 2, 2017 | Pamela Geller
    The Guardian reported Thursday that "Chris Bryant, a senior Labour backbencher," has written to British prime minister Theresa May, urging her to "issue an official ban on Donald Trump from entering the UK on the grounds he is condoning fascism and his presence is 'not conducive to the public good.'" When Western historians look back at the 21st century, the Geller-Spencer ban in the U.K. will be viewed as one of that once great nation's darkest moments and a low point for freedom. It was the victory of Islamic law over Western law, sharia over freedom. This because Trump retweeted...

    A SOLDIER was attacked in an Exeter underpass by a gang who chanted “Lee Rigby” as they kicked him on the floor. The 18-year-old, known as Alexander, has been a member of the Coldstream Guards for six months. But on route to his home in St Thomas, Exeter, he said he was targeted by the hateful mob as he is a serving member of the armed forces. After a period of about two minutes he managed to escape after fighting off but fear his injuries could have been a lot worse. The incident happened at just before 2pm on Wednesday...

    A man reported to be a serving soldier is dead and two people have been shot in Woolwich, south east London, after what Sky sources understand is being treated as a terrorist attack. Downing Street has called a meeting of the Government's Cobra emergency committee after the incident in John Wilson Street, which David Cameron described as "truly shocking". Sky sources understand that senior police officers believe the killing was likely to be a politically-motivated Islamist terrorist attack. Dozens of weapons - including a number of knives - and pools of blood could be seen on the ground, where a...

    Finally we got to remember the man and not the act as the horror of Woolwich was temporarily put to one side. At last, among family, friends, comrades and his extended Greater Manchester clan, the celebration of a special character “who put a smile on everyone’s face” took centre stage. The presence of Prime Minister David Cameron and London Mayor Boris Johnson may have reminded mourners of the city in which Fusilier Lee Rigby was ­horrifically slain and the global impact images of his death had. But this funeral was about saying thank you for the life of a loyal...

    The Russian TV channel RT is, as usual, doing something right and something wrong, often in the same breath. Two days ago I saw its broadcast on the anti-Islam backlash in the UK following the brutal beheading of Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich, East London. In it they mentioned graffiti on mosques, attacks on Muslims and protest marches by the English Defence League (EDL), whose images were shown. Even in me, despite my distrust for the mainstrean, socio-communist media, they created a subliminal, temporary association between the first two, which are criminal acts, and the third, which is lawful exercise...

    Former British prime minister Tony Blair launched a scathing attack on fundamentalist Islam Sunday, writing that the West needs to admit that there is an ideological issue within the religion. Writing in the Daily Mail about last month’s gruesome murder of soldier Lee Rigby, in what officials have said is an Islamic terror attack, Blair said that the extremist world view within Islam went ” deeper and wider than it is comfortable for us to admit. “There is a problem within Islam – from the adherents of an ideology that is a strain within Islam. And we have to put...

    THIRTY YARDS AWAY, THE DARK SHAPE OF A BUFFALO rose up out of waist-high grass and plunged straight for us. Before he’d moved more than a few yards, a 410-gr. solid bullet entered the tip of the outstretched bull’s nose and passed through his brain. The effect was dramatic: As if he’d hit an invisible brick wall, his head dropped, his legs buckled and his nose shoveled into the sand only a few yards from where he began his charge. It all happened in a flash of movement and reaction far quicker than the recounting of it. I looked from...
