    HPAKANT, Myanmar, July 2 (UPI) -- A mob burned down a mosque in northern Myanmar, the second attack in a little more than one week. Several hundred villagers wielding sticks, knives and other weapons raided and burned the structure around 3:30 p.m. Friday, according to the state-run Global New Light of Myanmar state-newspaper. Local authorities and security forces said they tried to disperse the mob but that the mob was unresponsive and entirely beyond control. No arrests were made and an investigation has been launched....

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. Arkansas inched closer Friday toward becoming the second state this year to adopt a law that critics say would sanction discrimination against gays and lesbians, with the state Senate approving a religious protection bill. The bill, approved by the Senate 24-7, prevents state and local government from taking any action that substantially burdens someone's religious beliefs unless a "compelling" interest is proven. The measure heads for a final vote next week in the House, which has already approved an initial version. The proposal faces an easy path forward, because Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson has said he'll...

    An arsonist set fire to a mosque in the Swedish town of Eskilstuna on Thursday, injuring five people, police said, according to the BBC. About 15 to 20 people were attending midday prayers in the mosque, located in the ground floor of a residential building, when the fire broke out. Local media footage showed smoke and flames billowing from the windows before firefighters put the blaze out. The incident comes amid a fierce debate in Sweden over immigration policies. The far right wants to cut the number of asylum seekers allowed into Sweden by 90%, while mainstream parties are intent...
  • The Muslims of the Central African Republic Face a Deadly Purge

    The anti-balaka have outgrown their name. These militias in the Central African Republic, once united under a moniker meaning anti-machete in the local Sango language, are exacting their own vicious revenge upon the mainly Muslim rebels who overthrew the government last March and waged months of terror against the Christian population. They are now accused of atrocities far worse than what first prompted them to take up arms. An Amnesty International report on Feb. 12 said attacks on Muslims in January by anti-balaka militias, made up of Christians and animists, had amounted to ethnic cleansing. Fatou Bensouda, chief prosecutor at...

    Dear Readers. I received a survey request (filled in below) from the Media Research Center (MRC). Initially I was expecting just another multiple choice form that misses many of the key issues of the day. Much to my delight, this one actually had, in addition to MRC's preferred topics, "other" as choices. And what was even more special, MRC provided a space in which to spell out the other choice(s). Burned out naif that I am, I have my doubts they will actually read what I put in the boxes. I know, many of you think I must be crazy...

    So, what to do now? I have several action items for you. These are all re-hash, but I'll put them together and re-post them because maybe, just maybe, you people are actually ready to listen and do something. 1. TAX STRIKE If you are self-employed, stop paying quarterlies and DO NOT FILE next April. Boehner rolled over this morning and announced that the "Republicans" are gung-ho to raise taxes. They can only raise taxes on you if you pay taxes. Don't pay. DO NOT FILE. IF YOU ARE NOT SELF-EMPLOYED and your employer withholds your taxes, all you have to...

    Police in Hamilton, N.J. say two elderly sisters, aged 94 and 93, fought off an armed 27-year-old man who tried to rob them and steal their car. Sergio Fernando Solorzano-Vasquez was jailed Monday and charged with robbery and carjacking. Police say he jumped into their car and hid in the backseat when they went into a CVS store on Sunday morning. When they came out, and got back into the car, Solorzano-Vasquez allegedly made his move. Police say he started swinging his knife and threatening the women, but he might not have expected what happened next. Police say instead of...

    The Chancelor of Germany, Angela Merkel, has taken an incredibly bold move by openly and honestly admitting that the country of Germany is suffering because millions of Muslim immigrants refuse to learn the nation's language or properly assimilate into German culture. Her simple solution: Learn German and adopt Christian values. In an article released this weekend by Audrey Kauffman, writer for AFP: ""Multikulti", the concept that "we are now living side by side and are happy about it," does not work, Merkel told a meeting of younger members of her conservative Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party at Potsdam near Berlin...

    MILWAUKEE -- There's a new vehicle designed to help keep the city of Milwaukee safe. The vehicle is called the "rhino" because of its armor. Private donations to Alderman Bob Donovan's Operation Impact were used to paint the donated truck and install surveillance cameras. Donovan said police will use it to monitor possible criminal and nuisance activities. "Is this going to solve all of our problems in this neighborhood? Absolutely not. Is it a step in the right direction? I believe it is. And if this doesn't work well by god, we toss it aside, we roll up our sleeves...

"I'm not turning anybody away that would be unethical," Dr. Jack Cassell, 56, a Mount Dora urologist and a registered Republican opposed to the health plan, told the Orlando Sentinel on Thursday. "But if they read the sign and turn the other way, so be it." The sign reads: "If you voted for Obama seek urologic care elsewhere. Changes to your...

    WINNIPEG -- Martial arts instructors are condemning a Winnipeg mother's decision to enrol her bullied son in kick-boxing classes and give him permission to retaliate against his tormentors. The mother, who asked not to be named, gave her son the green light to "kick the snot out of " his alleged tormentor when school starts next month..... The mother said a bully has been tormenting her son for years. Both boys are in their early teens, and have attended the same school in Louis Riel School Division. "It's about time he took a stand and stood up for himself," she...

    A Democrat is poised to take the reins of power in Washington, D.C., and Fresno resident Jim Robinson is feeling a sense of deja vu. It was President Bill Clinton's 1992 election that sparked Robinson's political activism, driving him to create a Web site that made him a grass-roots leader among conservatives before Clinton's term was over. This year, as Barack Obama prepares to sweep into office on another tide of Democratic votes, Robinson and denizens of that Web site, freerepublic.com, are preparing to do battle again. "We'll double and redouble our efforts to fight for what is right," Robinson...

    This October was the 437th anniversary of a forgotten yet crucial battle in the defense of western civilization called the battle of Lepanto. It is the victory of this battle that is the reason we are living in a free nation rather than an Islamic style dictatorship. It is why we are still Christian and not Muslim. It is the reason for the existence of America as it is as a free nation. (Though now and days it is not that free.) In 1571, The Turkish Ottoman empire was the superpower of the day. On land, the armies of...

  • Denmark: Expel Islam from Europe

    The controversial Danish People's Party member of the European Parliament Mogens Camre spoke at the DPP's annual meeting Sunday, calling to expel Islam from Europe. "Islam cannot be integrated. Islam will dominate Europe. And Islam is incompatible with our values. Therefore Islam will be thrown out of Europe. This little land is ours, we forged it ourselves. And we will govern it ourselves and decide ourselves who will live in it and how they will behave. And we will fight until Denmark is again free," said Camre, to loud applause. Last year a similar statement by DPP member Merethe Egeberg...

    The campaign puts out a statement from former Fannie Mae chief Franklin Raines, disowning ties to Obama, after a McCain ad attacked him for the ties. The Washington Post reported -- with the kind of blind sourcing that suggests the source was Raines -- that Raines had "taken calls from Barack Obama's presidential campaign seeking his advice on mortgage and housing policy matters." Raines said in the statement through the campaign, "I am not an advisor to Barack Obama, nor have I provided his campaign with advice on housing or economic matters." Obama spokesman Bill Burton added an attack: This...

    PROVIDENCE Federal immigration agents and state police raided six Rhode Island courthouses yesterday, arresting dozens of people employed by two contractors hired by the state. The detainees are all believed to be maintenance workers. The raid led to a noisy demonstration by at least 100 people outside the Immigration and Customs Enforcement office at 200 Dyer St. last night. Police officers arrived as the crowd grew; at one point the police pushed a line of demonstrators across the parking lot. Some in the crowd were relatives of the arrestees. Others included clergy and at least one state representative, Grace...
