    My biggest complaint on this issue, is that non-Muslims of West has been far too soft on those who want to impose Sharia on us whether we like or not. (That is not a call to violence). But once again we are getting some good news! In the last article here at Logan’s Warning we saw French youth’s rising up against Islam. Tonight the good news is here at home. Where a halal plant in Illinois was raided. Hopefully this is just the beginning of a country wide crackdown on the enemy within. 100 Armed Feds Raid Muslim Meatpacking House...

    CHICAGO (AP) -- A federal jury convicted a Chicago businessman on Thursday of helping plot an attack against a Danish newspaper that printed cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad but cleared him of the most serious charge accusing him of cooperating in the deadly 2008 rampage in Mumbai. The jury reached its split verdict after two days of deliberations, finding Tahawwur Rana guilty of providing material support to terrorism in Denmark and to the Pakistani militant group that had claimed responsibility for the three-day siege in India's largest city that left more than 160 people dead, including six Americans.

    PESHAWAR: According to a BBCUrdu report, Ilyas Kashmiri, a Pakistani terrorist leader with ties to al Qaeda, was among those killed in the latest drone strikes in South Waziristan.

    “Chicago immigration agency a front for terror plot, federal probers allege U.S. probe targets operations of First World Immigration” By Antonio Olivo Tribune reporter January 3, 2010 SNIPPET: “Federal prosecutors charge that the Immigration center served as a front in a Chicago-based terror plot to bomb a Danish newspaper that in 2005 outraged Muslims worldwide when it published unflattering caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad.

    Los Angeles is becoming a "Third World city" with immigrants making up half its workforce, says a new study. A third of immigrants have not graduated from high school and 60 per cent do not speak English fluently, the Migration Policy Institute found. It said this left immigrants ill-equipped to fill California's fastest-growing occupations, such as computer software engineering and nursing. The organisation added that as the so-called baby boomers reach retirement age, a similar pattern will spread across the US. Ernesto Cortes Jr, of the Industrial Areas Foundation, a think-tank that specialises on social change, claimed Los Angeles was...

    China’s population is so large and its economy growing so quickly that the Chinese are set to take over second place in the league table of the world’s wealthy people in the next decade. Research published this week by the World Institute for Development Economics Research of the United Nations University (UNU-Wider) showed that an adult needed to own $61,000 of net assets to be in the richest 10 per cent of the world’s wealth distribution and that in 2000, Chinese people represented less than 1-in-100 of this group. ADVERTISEMENT But such is the pace of development that Professor Anthony...
