    Like some secretive, sinister army they march on their target. With only eyes visible behind black burkhas, scores of women wielding bamboo poles descend on a police checkpoint in the Pakistan capital of Islamabad. Backed by armed male students, they snatched weapons and took four officials hostage, triggering a gun battle that left at least nine people dead and 140 wounded. As the bullets flew, many of the women took to rooftops to shout anti- Government slogans. Students set fire to two government offices and torched dozens of cars outside. There were even loudspeaker calls for suicide attacks on the...

    No-go Zones (NGZ) are typically referred to as being places where non-Muslims dare not tread, even in their own countries. Take heart. There appears to be a new dynamic at work unfolding in a British town known as Leicester. There, Muslim women who wear burkas in public feel like they’re entering NGZ’s themselves. A new book by two brainiacs at the University of Leicester features the “plight” of these victims: Muslim women who wear a full veil say there are no-go areas in Leicester which they feel frightened to visit – even in a car. They claim they are subjected...

    How low can CAIR go? When Muslim groups decided to protest the 9/11 Museum for its Islamophobia, they did it the traditional way, with anti-Semitism. ... The “Jews Against Islamophobia” protest, aside from the usual handful of elderly Trotskyists associated with radical anti-Israel groups, the protesters were Muslim women in Burkas and Hijabs holding up signs claiming to be Jews. And the media not only did not report on it, but allowed them to get away with it. There’s no other group that would have been allowed to pull a blatant fraud like this with no one to say a...

    Sheik Abdulla Daoud has called for babies to wear burqas in order to help prevent them from being raped. Though Daoud suggested this take place in 2012, the video of him saying this has only recently surfaced. The interview took place on the Islamic al-Majd TV. Daoud stated that, according to research he has, female children and babies have been subject to frequent sexual assaults in Saudi Arabia, his country. His idea to prevent them, however, is extremely controversial. Instead of having men held accountable for rapes, or trying to educate the Saudi populace about the increase in these assaults,...

    Women with uncovered faces might give the little tykes all sorts of ideas. This isn’t happening in Afghanistan… but in Tunisia. The heartland of the Arab Spring. A group of Salafites has issued death threats against teachers at an elementary school in Djerba, Tunisia, if they will not start wearing the Islamic veil within a week. ... Some might complain that it’s unfair to call Salafis moderate. But I’m not being sarcastic. If the Muslim Brotherhood can be repeatedly referred to as a moderate group as well as many of the Salafist militias in Syria that aren’t Al Qaeda… that...

    "If a dry run is occurring, the attack will shortly follow." That's according to Wolf Koch, a Boeing 767 pilot for Delta Airlines and an official at the Air Line Pilots Association International, who was discussing common terrorist tactics in the run-up to devastating attacks like those on 9/11. That is an extremely worrying thought given a memo leaked this week from the U.S. Airline Pilots Association, which warns of "several cases recently…of what appear to be probes, or dry runs" of such attacks.

    A jihadist group affiliated with Al Qaeda has threatened to carry out terrorist attacks in Catalonia, an autonomous region in northeastern Spain that is home to the largest concentration of radical Islamists in Europe. The threats were issued by a group called "Africamuslima" in response to efforts by Catalonian lawmakers to increase surveillance of radical Salafists seeking to impose Islamic Sharia law in Spain and other parts of Europe. Catalonia -- a region of 7.5 million people centered on the Mediterranean city of Barcelona -- is home to the largest Muslim population in Spain. Most of the estimated 450,000 Muslims...

    A Saudi cleric has called for all female babies to be fully covered by wearing the face veil, commonly known as the burka, citing reports of little girls being sexually molested. In a TV interview on the Islamic al-Majd TV, which seems to date back to mid-last year, Sheikh Abdullah Daoud, stressed that wearing the veil will protect baby girls. The Sheikh tried to back his assertion with claims of sexual molestation against babies in the kingdom, quoting unnamed medical and security sources. Recently picked up on social media, Sheikh Dauod’s statement prompted wide condemnation from his fellow Saudis on...

Hasnath pleaded guilty to four charges of having copies of the magazine on his computer memory USB stick. The Central Criminal Court heard that he had also painted burqas on scantily clad women featured on advertising posters in the local area. As...

    If there is any question how the party that accuses the GOP as constitution and democracy tramplers would handle respect for the will of the people let this be the answer. Law enforcement officers are searching for Democratic senators boycotting a Senate vote on Gov. Scott Walker's budget-repair plan Thursday in an attempt to bring the lawmakers to the floor to allow Republicans to act on the bill. As Republicans denounced the move, one Democratic senator said that he believed most of the members of his caucus are in another state.... The bill would help balance the state budget by...

    Jeremy Clarkson and his Top Gear co-stars have sparked religious outrage after dressing up in burkas on the Boxing Day special. Clarkson and Richard Hammond decided to dress in niqabs, a form of the burka where everything but the eyes are covered, in order to disguise themselves on the road. They also got James May in on the act when they greeted him from hospital after he fell and hit his head on rocks in the Syrian desert.

    NICE, France (Jan. 26) -- French lawmakers said Tuesday they want to ban Muslim women from veiling their faces in public facilities, a plan applauded by some French Muslim women but criticized by Muslim leaders, who said it could provoke Islamic extremists in France and abroad. A parliamentary panel convened six months ago by French President Nicolas Sarkozy on Tuesday issued a much-anticipated, 200-page report recommending that women be banned from wearing the full-face veil in public office buildings, schools, hospitals and while using mass transit. The full-face veil is viewed by many in France as a sign of extremism...

    Residents carried their own signs Wednesday evening calling for "peace not hate" in response to a northwest Gainesville church that recently posted a sign with an anti-Islamic message. At least 80 people gathered on both sides of Northwest 37th Street in front of the Dove World Outreach Center for a prayer vigil organized after the church recently erected a sign proclaiming "Islam is of the devil." Participants held up their signs and listened to words from Eve MacMaster, pastor of the Emmanuel Mennonite Church, and Saeed R. Kahn, president of the Muslim Association of North Central Florida. The group maintained...

They are due to report back with their recommendations in six months.On Monday Sarkozy declared in a keynote parliamentary address that the burka, which covers women from head to toe, is "not welcome" in France....

    She is short, powerful and understated. And at one time, she was underestimated. U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg made clear her perspective on some issues when she spoke Sunday at an Atlanta synagogue. It matters that women and minorities are on the high court — if only for the public get equal access to the bathroom, she said in one of the lighter moments of her talk. The court itself, while collegial, has entered a period of turbulence with a series of 5-4 decisions that started with Bush v. Gore, the decision that ended the 2000 presidential election...

    Michael Moore calls Muslim terrorists "Minutemen" ("The Iraqis who have risen up against the occupation are not 'insurgents' or 'terrorists' or 'The Enemy.' They are the REVOLUTION, the Minutemen, and their numbers will grow — and they will win."). But Islamists are cowards who kill innocent civilians, and then run away and hide, disguising themselves as women: Why should we believe Moore, whose "rage against the machine" includes investing in stocks like Halliburton? Here's more proof of Islamist "bravery:" CCTV images of one of the 21 July bomb suspects apparently fleeing London in a Muslim veil have been shown in...

Mustaf Jamma reportedly evaded checks at Heathrow last Christmas to return to his native Somalia. Shadow home secretary David Davis said tighter border checks were needed.   Mustaf Jamma is thought to have returned to SomaliaThe Home Office said the claim was unlikely to be true but immigration officers had the power to ask women to lift veils during identity checks. Visual checks are carried out on people arriving in the UK but BAA,...

    PREGNANT Midland women who regularly wear burkas are being targeted by health chiefs trying to halt a rise in rickets. The Victorian disease, caused by lack of exposure to the sun - resulting in vitamin D deficiency - has returned to Birmingham. Shockingly, 65 city children have needed hospital treatment for rickets, or related hypocalcaemic fits, in the past three years. And health bosses fear this may be the tip of the iceberg with more cases of the illness, which affects bone development, not being formally diagnosed. Now they have invested £150,000 to fight the rise of rickets among infants...

    I have a few thoughts for you in response to some letters of late. The voices now crying for the impeachment of Bush were silent during Waco, Elian Gonzales and the first World Trade Center attack, Ruby Ridge and the bombing of the U.S.S. Cole. Their favorite president presided over the the largest bubble burst in U.S. economic history (DOT.COM). China, India and Pakistan get nukes. The U.S. bombed Yugoslavia for weeks; hit the Chinese embassy and killed thousands of untold civilians. The U.S. did a lot of bombing from 30,000 feet because Clinton was afraid to lose one soldier....

When Hall, 22, passed a metal-detecting wand over the woman’s body, it had gone crazy. During the pat down, she pulled out an AK-47 rifle automatic rifle strapped to the woman’s leg and 30 rounds of ammunition tucked under her breast. “She started screaming; she lashed out at me,” Hall recalled. “I said, ‘Why did you hide these from me?’ ” The incident happened...
