    ISLAMABAD — Pakistani authorities still have three of Osama bin Laden's wives and eight of his children in custody, nearly a week after the U.S. raid that killed the Saudi terrorist leader, and no countries have asked for their return, the government said Sunday. Pakistan gained custody of bin Laden's family members after the covert U.S. operation on May 2 that killed the al-Qaida chief and four others at his hide-out in the northwestern city of Abbottabad and further strained relations between the two nations. Their questioning could provide more information on the U.S. military operation and help reveal how...

    The attack came as the bus sat outside Terminal 2 at the airport, according to Frankfurt police spokesman Manfred Fuellhardt. The bus driver and a passenger were killed, and one person suffered serious wounds and another light injuries, he said. A source tells Fox News that the shooter yelled "Allah Akbar" when opening fire on the U.S. military personnel. He then dropped his gun at the scene, ran into the terminal and was subdued. U.S. Air Force Europe spokeswoman Maj. Beverly Mock said all four victims were airmen. They were all based at the Lakenheath military base in Britain. A...

    Keith Ellison, widely hailed as America's first Muslim congressman, could more accurately be described as CAIR and Hamas' man in Congress. Congressman Ellison has been a regular presence at CAIR fundraisers and at pro-Hamas rallies in the United States. As a former member of Farrakhan's Nation of Islam , Ellison has enough anti-semitic and Islamist credentials to satisfy anyone, and had expressed openly anti-semitic beliefs in the past. Since Ellison got his start with CAIR , his attempt to provide support for Hamas is completely unsurprising. Both Hamas and CAIR are projects of the Muslim Brotherhood, which also helped...

    Here is video of Pennsylvania Democrat Rep. Chaka Fattha calling for a "March on Washington" by liberals to demand a Government-run Health Care "Public Option." Fattah is calling for such a march on September 13. Fattah says a "Public Option" is a "necessity." He says the House will move a bill in September that will have a "Public Option," and he believes their is enough support in the Senate to do so as well. He believes a massive March on Washington as Congress is about to pass legislation will help put it over the top. . . . . (Watch...
  • Obama's Endorsement of Anti-Semitic Bigot May Backfire in Pennsylvania

    Apparently, Obama went out of his way to endorse a pan-Islamist, anti-Semitic, anti-Israel bigot and one of the most radical Members of Congress--Congressman Chaka Fattah (that his last name is the same as one of the manifestations of the PLO isn't exactly a coincidence)-- in the Democratic Primary for Mayor of Philadelphia, last year. Fattah, for example, was one of 62 Democrats voting against a House resolution in favor of Israel's right to defend itself against Palestinian terrorism and also build a border fence to keep terrorists out.

    Chaka Fattah was born to Russell Davenport and Frances Brown on November 21, 1956, under the name Arthur Davenport. His parents divorced when he was young, and his mother soon remarried to a man she met at a national conference on black power in 1968. Following this conference, his mother decided to change her name to Falaka Fattah, to acknowledge her African ethnicity, and Arthur she renamed Chaka Fattah.

    Hezbollah is the terrorist organization that was responsible for killing more than 200 Marines who were on a peacekeeping mission in Lebanon more than twenty years ago. Hezbollah also was responsible for the kidnapping, torture, and murder of U.S. Marine Col. William R. Higgins in 1988 and CIA Beirut station chief William Buckley in 1984. Hezbollah shot U.S. Navy Seabee Diver Robert Stethem, during a 1985 hijacking of TWA Flight 847, and dumped his body onto the Beirut airport tarmac. Representative John Dingell, a Democrat from Michigan, who publicly stated during a July 30 an interview with Michigan TV station...

    BAGHDAD, April 13, 2006 – Coalition and Iraqi forces killed a wanted extremist with high-level terrorism ties during an early morning raid March 27 near Baghdad's Abu Ghraib district, Multinational Force Iraq officials here announced today.

He also had ties with Jaysh al Islami -- "The Islamic Army in Iraq" -- and the Iraqi resistance group Ansar al Sunnah. Over the past six months, the Kurdi worked...

    I am about to praise a liberal, a Democrat and a member of the Congressional Black Caucus (search). No, there's nothing wrong with your TV and you have not inadvertently tuned to one of the broadcast networks. This is still FOX News Channel. Congressman Chaka Fattah (search) of Pennsylvania has proposed eliminating the cumbersome and to most of us indecipherable tax code and replacing it with a consumption tax. Instead of individuals and corporations paying a tax on earnings, Fattah wants to tax what we buy, sell, trade or acquire. He estimates the current system costs the government $200 billion...
