  • Humane Jihad?

    Why take the infidel by force when you can invent a great tasting soft-drink, market it to the American male and make him impotent? This is known as Humane Jihad and does not bode well for America going forward.

    The Iraq Effect If Saddam Hussein were still in power, this year's Arab uprisings could never have happened. By Christopher Hitchens Posted Monday, March 28, 2011, at 12:32 PM ET Can anyone imagine how the Arab spring would have played out if a keystone Arab state, oil-rich and heavily armed with a track record of intervention in its neighbors' affairs and a history of all-out mass repression against its own civilians, were still the private property of a sadistic crime family? As it is, to have had Iraq on the other scale from the outset has been an unnoticed and...

    The Arab League condemned on Sunday Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip, calling on Israel to cease military action in both the strip and Egypt immediately. The Arab League issued a statement on Sunday, imploring the United Nations to take action to end the attacks in which 15 people have died. "We issued a statement condemning the Israeli offensive on Gaza ... and Egyptian land," Arab League Secretary-General Nabil Elaraby told reporters in Cairo. "The United Nations has to take procedures to stop the Israeli offensive on Gaza," he said, without giving details of the measures he was urging

    Before running off on his latest vacation, at the conclusion of his three-day, publicly-funded campaign swing, President Obama boldly called for Bashar al-Assad to step down — in the midst of what is the Iran-backed Syrian president’s brutal, months long repression of his opposition, a campaign in which thousands have been killed and are missing. As John Bolton observes, calling on Assad to step down doesn’t tell us what Mr. Obama is prepared to do to make that happen. John suggests that the answer is nothing, and that this will expose the U.S. to the “charge of just being a...

    After Climategate cooled the fire of manmade global warming, Al Gore kept himself pretty much out of the limelight, until last week, when he suggested that we put together an “American Spring.” After hearing this, my friend Dmitry shot off an email in his typical, sarcastic style, saying, “I am so delighted to learn about Al Gore’s proposal for an ‘American Spring’ – a sequel to the original ‘Arab’ one! I wonder if he has any candidates for the role of Lara Logan, who was raped by a cheering Arab mob.”

    A resident of Rosh Tzurim, a kibbutz in Israel's Gush Etzion bloc south of Jerusalem, stopped his car at a junction and exited the vehicle, momentarily leaving his five year old daughter inside. While he was outside the vehicle a thief jumped into the vehicle and drove off with the girl inside. The shocked father called security forces who rushed to the junction and issued an alert for the vehicle and girl. According to one report, an off-duty Palestinian Authority policeman spotted the girl at the entrance to the village of Al Aroub and returned her to Israeli authorities at...

    A knife-weilding Arab on Monday approached a border police station near the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hevron and advanced on the officers there. The officers confronted the terrorist at gunpoint and began "standard procedures" to safely arrest the man, who was appaerently so alarmed by the forcefulness of the response that he surrendered without incident. Officers disarmed the man, arrested him, and handed him over the Palestinian Authority security forces for questioning. During his initial interrogation by Israeli authorities the terrorist admitted that it was his aim to "stab soldiers."

    Dearborn, Mich. - With a massive mosque, minarets and scores of Arabic-signed stores and restaurants, parts of this city look like the Middle East. But Dearborn is a lot closer than Beirut, Damascus or Cairo. And while this Detroit suburb may be better known as the hometown of Ford Motor Co., it’s also where the Mideast meets the Midwest. (Snip) “People don’t understand to what extent world cultures feed and learn from each other,” said Anan Ameri, director of the museum. “America is a country of immigrants. It has been shaped by these immigrants and the immigrants have been shaped

    Ever since CNBC’s Rick Santelli inspired the Tea Party movement’s creation in early 2009, the left has been looking for a similar spark on their own side. The earliest liberal alternative, the so-called Coffee Party, was a flop. But former Vice President Al Gore insists such a movement still needs to be invented. On Tuesday’s “Countdown with Keith Olbermann,” Gore made an appearance on his own network, Current TV, for the second night in a row. This time it was to respond to the debt ceiling legislation agreed upon by Congress and signed into

    DAMASCUS — Is this your first visit to Syria, the passport control man asks me. No, I tell him, I came here once before over a decade ago. He stamps my passport. I had been very lucky to get a Syrian visa this time. The travel advice was not to visit. The Syrian regime is very wary of foreigners, fearing that journalists and spies are inflaming the situation further. I collect my bag and walk through customs, passing a poster, of modest size, of President Bashar al-Assad with the words in Arabic proclaiming: "Leader of the youth, hope of the...

    Home Front Defense Minister Matan Vilnai (Independence) addressed in a letter on Wednesday MK Yaakov “Ketzaleh” Katz’s (National Union) demand to determine the legal status of 13 Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, with an emphasis on finally providing zoning plans for these commuinities. In the letter, Vilnai addressed the situation in the community of Ofra, saying, “A significant part of the community of Ofra is built on private Palestinian land” and adding that as a result “the community does not have an approved jurisdiction.” Vilnai further explained that despite the opinions that were presented to him on the issue,...

    Israel's National Road Safety Authority has concluded the ubiquitously dangerous behavior of Israeli Arabs behind the wheel stems from a sense of unfairness rather than their simply being lawless scofflaws. Legal observers note that anti-social feelings are not an affirmative defense in any court of law and that reckless endangerment of others - which does not require conscious decision-making - remains a serious criminal act demonstrating an abberant lack of regard for human life. Further, many question the validity of concluding 'acts of resistance' are not voluntary in cases where Arab drivers behind the wheel of heavy equipment or large...

    A new Reuters/Ipsos poll released today shows that 63% of Americans believe the country is on the wrong track; up three points from a similar poll last month. But approximately half of the poll respondents (49%) approve of the job President Barack Obama is doing. Think that means he's not being blamed for the current state of the union? Think again.

Imagine if this were an imam and non-Muslims were threatening, harassing and menacing him this way. Seriously. It would be played on enemedia 24/7 until they beat us into submission. This video should anger every American who loves this country and our way of life. This is sharia law on the streets of our towns and our cities. America, where are you...

    Obama-Supported Libyan Rebels “Honor Killing” Rape Victims In all the controversy of Obama's undeclared war against the Libyan regime of Mohamar Gadaffi, a rather striking fact has been lost: the Libyans Obama is supporting are no less barbaric than the ones he is bombing. For proof, just see how the families of women raped by Gadaffi's thugs are murdering them in a spate of Muslim "honor killings" in rebel regions, as the BBC reported... Libyan women and girls who become pregnant through rape risk being murdered by their own families in so-called "honour killings", according to Libyan aid workers. "In...

    When you run into a mine field, there's something that's been known to happen: land mines go off. When scores of people charge at the border of a sovereign nation with Molotov cocktails and an assortment of other arms spotted in the crowd, another thing has been known to happen: the people on the other side of that border recognize a threat to their personal safety as well as their national sovereignty, and try to stop you. Of course, the headline circling the globe at this point is "Israel fires on protestors," plus a casualty estimate. As with the protests,...

    Directors and critics in the Middle East are divided about how Hollywood portrays Arabs. JERUSALEM — As he watched the news coverage of the Arab Spring, Palestinian filmmaker George Khleifi wondered what the TV footage might mean to the West. "If 30, 40 or 50 years ago this revolution in Egypt would have taken place, I think maybe not 10 percent of Americans would see it," Khleifi said. "Now with satellite and the internet — there is a revolution and Arabs are not who they thought they were." Khleifi hopes Hollywood will take cues from Tahrir Square to improve its...

    Egyptian protesters carried Mubarak Hitler signs a couple of months ago. Now there’s a Nazi party. Wasn’t Barack Obama just comparing himself to Reagan or Thatcher, or something? He’s more like the anti-Reagan. Where once was a pro-American ally, now there’s a Nazi party. Good grief. The Jerusalem Post reported, via Lucianne: A group of Egyptian political activists have announced plans to set up a local version “of the Nazi party,” an Egyptian newspaper reported on Thursday. Citing a leftist Egyptian news portal, the Al-Masry Al-Youm daily said that “the party’s founding deputy is a former military official,” and that...
