    Lebanese militants have been streaming into Syria in recent months to help that government in its war with the rebels—and by all accounts, they’ve been making a difference in an ongoing and critical battle in eastern Syria. Desperate to slow that tide, Syrian rebels are trying a brutal new tactic to dissuade Hezbollah militants from crossing the border: They’re decapitating captured fighters and sending the heads back home to Lebanon, according to several reports and pictures posted on various sites. One Israeli Facebook page called “News In SOS” quoted and translated Syrian rebel sources late last month saying they sent...

    What an incredibly sad way of life it is for children growing up in war-torn Syria whose experience with Islam shows it’s anything but a religion of peace. A disturbing new video making its way around the internet shows children in the Syrian town of Ras al-Ayn playing a game that simulates an enemy beheading while chanting, “Allahu Akbar.” Although it is unknown who shot the video, “Eretz Zen – A secular Syrian opposed to having my country turned into a Taliban-like state” – published the video on social media sites like YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.

Until President Obama came on the scene, the U.S. almost always maintained a policy for top level administrators to 'never negotiate with terrorists.'

    A Christian pastor was recently slaughtered in the Muslim-majority African nation of Tanzania. While butchering Christian minorities is becoming increasingly common in that part of the Muslim world, the context for this latest slaughter is somewhat different than the usual forms of Christian persecution under Islam—such as allegations of “blaspheming” the name of Muslim prophet Muhammad. And yet, as in most forms of modern-day Muslim attacks on Christians, it too fits patterns and precedents. On February 11, Pastor Mathayo Kachili of the Tanzania Assemblies of God Church was beheaded by Muslims. According to the report, a spokesperson from the local...

Hassan, if you remember, is the Bridges TV founder charged with the decapitation death of his wife, Aasiya Zabair Hassan, in his upscale suburban Buffalo office last February, where she was found with three dozen stab wounds to her body and her head sawed off with a steak knife.

    Bridges TV founder and Chief Executive Muzzammil Hassan founded the TV network in 2004. According to a Reuters story at that time, "his wife came up with the idea in December 2001 while listening to the radio on a road trip.": "Some derogatory comments were being made about Muslims that offended her," Hassan told Reuters ahead of Tuesday's launch.
