    Shakers are on the endangered list. There are now only two living members left of the Shaker Church in Maine after one died Monday. Sister Frances Carr passed away from cancer at 89. The United Society of Believers in Christ’s Second Appearing — a mouthful, to be sure — was a Quaker sect that broke from the Society of Friends in the 18th century. At their height, the group was said to have about 5,000 members across the country. The Shakers, as they were called because of their trembling during worship, focus on hard work and simplicity, and lead a...

    Trying to downplay what came out of Imam Shaker's mouth. His comments on the Western World makes one wonder why he lives in the West. He also mentions that every Muslim should memorize the Quran, or if they can't, Muslims should keep it in their pocket...... I wonder if he ever encourages Muslims to keep the US Constitution in their pocket? I do encourage everyone to watch the entire video, but I understand that not everyone has the patience that I have. That is the reason for this edit, as the average person will not watch a video longer than...

    Pajamas Media | Friday, December 12, 2008 The funeral for Shirwa Ahmed last week in Burnsville, Minnesota, punctuated a growing national security threat metastasizing inside the U.S. — one Homeland Security and law enforcement authorities have quickly taken note of. Ahmed, who killed himself in a suicide bombing attack in Somalia in October, is just one of up to 40 men from the Twin Cities area who have disappeared and are feared to have returned to their homeland for training with the al-Shabaab terrorist group to wage jihad. The FBI is investigating similar disappearances in other major Somali communities in...

    A 26-year-old Chicago man was trying to help finance al-Qaida and hoped to blow himself up in a suicide mission, authorities say. Shaker Masri was arrested Tuesday evening and charged by federal prosecutors on Wednesday with knowingly intending to use a weapon of mass destruction outside the United States. Authorities said Masri told an FBI informant that he planned to go to Somalia and help al-Qaida, and asked the informant for money to help buy guns once they got there. He also told the informant that he hoped to become a martyr by wearing a suicide vest, the criminal complaint...

    A reporter from Agence France-Presse, the world's oldest established news agency, visited Northeast Ohio recently to report on the devastation wrought by the subprime lending crisis. The story was rich in detail: "The streets are empty. Trash rustles down the road past rusted barbecues, abandoned furniture, sagging homes and gardens turned to weed. This is Shaker Heights." Uh, no, it isn't. He was talking about Cleveland. "It's like describing a murder scene and getting everything right except the name of the murder victim," said Cuyahoga County Treasurer James Rokakis, who was quoted inaccurately in the story as saying, "Shaker Heights...
