    No doubt about it, racism still exists in America. The question is how big of a factor it will be when deciding the outcome of this election. The interesting occurrence that is happening is that the party who is making the biggest deal about race is the one with the minority candidate. Today on the local Hallerin Hilton Hill show, Fatima Ali was interviewed after saying in an article she wrote that a John McCain victory would inspire an all out "race war." I'll admit it has entered my mind. After watching the looting in the wake of the Rodney...

    How The West Was Won The rapid and unexpected decline of the Sunni insurgency in Iraq was officially recognized this week, when Maj. Gen. John Kelly, commanding the Marine Expeditionary Force, turned operational control of Anbar Province over to the Iraqi army and police. Anbar, a vast expanse of desert the size of North Carolina, had been the stronghold of the Sunni insurgency. For years, foreign fighters loyal to al-Qaida had sneaked across Iraq's northwestern border with Syria, into Anbar and down a "rat line" of safe houses in Haditha, Ramadi and Hit. From Fallujah, the arch terrorist Zarqawi...

    Fatimah Ali: We need Obama, not 4 more years of George Bush By Fatimah Ali Philadelphia Daily News AMERICA is on the brink of a long, harsh and bitterly cold winter, with a looming recession that the GOP won't even admit to. The policies of the current White House have brutalized our economy, yet the wealthiest think that everything is fine. Rich Republicans just don't understand that millions are suffering. But many of their working class do, and they're beginning to abandon their own party. When lifelong Republican Barney Smith told the Democratic convention that he'd vote for Barack Obama...

    WASHINGTON, Aug 3: Five years after her mysterious disappearance in Karachi, the FBI has finally conceded that an MIT-trained Pakistani neuroscientist is alive and is in US custody in Afghanistan. Aafia Siddiqui, 36, disappeared with her three children while visiting her parents’ home in Karachi in March 2003, around the same time the FBI announced that it wanted to question her over her alleged links to Al Qaeda. Her family’s lawyer Elaine Whitfield Sharp said she believed recent media reports about Mrs Siddiqui’s incarceration increased pressure on the US and Pakistani authorities to divulge more information. “I don’t believe that...

The man, Assad Sarwar, was said to be in contact with terrorist leaders overseas and visited Pakistan a month before his arrest as preparations for the airline attacks were being finalised.

    It appears that the Imam that called for the death of Ayaan Hirsi Ali for daring to speak out against the "religion of peace" STILL has a standing invitation from the University of Pittsburgh to speak: (h/t Weasel Zippers) The Johnstown campus of the University of Pittsburgh is courting controversy after having promised a local imam - who advocates killing those who forsake their faith in Islam - an opportunity to address its student body. Responding to a lecture at the campus given by an ex-Muslim promoting a book critical of Islam, the imam of the Islamic Center of Johnstown....
