    “It looks like every scummy atheist is using a terrible tragedy to mock religious people, because that shows the best of their values,” Right Scoop blogger Soopermexican commented. This is so cruel, so dishonest, so thoughtless, so talentless that one scarcely knows where to begin. The idea that scores of Texans (including 30 fatalities so far) deserved this suffering? The premise that Nazis comprise any meaningful percentage of the Texas populace? The contrast to how Texans reacted when tragedy struck Charlie Hebdo?

    She leads a clandestine existence, on the move and under 24-hour guard as France’s most protected woman. Yet Zineb El Rhazoui, the Charlie Hebdo journalist who happened to be in Casablanca on January 7 last year, the day terrorists “avenging the Prophet” massacred nine people at the satirical magazine in Paris, believes she has a duty to defy Islamists desperate to silence her. Shaken but undeterred by the fatwas and relentless, precise death threats issued via social media to “kill the bitch” since she helped produce the publication’s first survivors’ issue following the attack — and spoke about it in...

    The aunt of drowned Syrian refugee boy Alan Kurdi says a controversial new cartoon from French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo is "disgusting." "I hope people respect our family's pain. It's a big loss to us. We're not the same anymore after this tragedy. We're trying to forget a little bit and move on with our life. But to hurt us again, it's not fair," said Tima Kurdi from her home in Port Coquitlam, B.C. The cartoon suggests that Alan Kurdi, had he grown up, would have been like the sexual attackers in Cologne, Germany, on New Year's Eve.

    VATICAN CITY - The Vatican newspaper has criticized French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo for depicting God as a Kalashnikov-carrying killer, saying it was "woeful" and disrespectful to true believers of all faiths. The cover was an anniversary edition, commemorating the attacks a year ago when Islamist militants killed 12 during an assault on the Charlie Hebdo newsroom in Paris. The cartoon on the cover shows an angry God with blood on his hands and a rifle strapped to his back. "One year later, the assassin is still on the run," the headline says. The Vatican daily newspaper L'Osservatore Romano accused...

    “The pair reportedly asked train passengers if they were Muslim, telling them to clear out quickly if this were the case to be spared.” “During the court hearing, Taoufik also claimed his actions were sparked after another passenger made a racist remark to him.” Oh, that makes it all OK, doesn’t it? These men didn’t have to have any actual bombs. Their monstrous “joke” did well enough to “strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah” (Quran 8:60). “Two men jailed after ‘Charlie Hebdo 2’ scare,” The Local, August 25, 2015 (thanks to Two men have been...

    A man who hid under a sink from the Charlie Hebdo gunmen for eight hours has accused French media of endangering his life. Paris prosecutors have opened an inquiry into broadcasters' handling of January's police siege of the Kouachi brothers, who had previously killed 12 people at the satirical paper's offices. Graphic designer Lilian Lepère, 26, hid in a cupboard under a sink in the printshop where he worked in Dammartin-en-Goële, near Paris, as police laid siege to Saïd and Chérif Kouachi. ... Lepère's sister Cindy confirmed in an interview with France 2 that her brother was probably inside and...

    Once again, this time by the New York Times, it has been proven that the only group that it is politically correct to bash or offend is Christians. They turn the other cheek and forgive those who trespass, rather than behead and bomb, or storm newspaper offices to murder and maim. That much was admitted by New York Times editor for standards Phil Corbett in defending the newspaper’s decision to publish Monday a picture of Pope Benedict XVI fashioned out of condoms, after being among those that refused to publish the Charlie Hebdo cartoons of the Mohammed that prompted a...

Laus Deo, and pass the ammunition “You can try to avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality.”—Ayn Rand (1905-1982) The people at “Charlie Hebdo” who were murdered deserved it, and Pamela Geller “asked for it?” WTF? What type of perverted “thinking” and twisted “logic” (I use the terms loosely) leads to such absurd and asinine conclusions? It beggars belief—and it beggars belief that the bulk of the world’s...

    A US operation has killed the senior al-Qaida figure who issued the claim of responsibility for the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris, according to US sources familiar with the matter and a reported video posted by the group. Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) said that its ideologue Nasser bin Ali al-Ansi was killed with his eldest son and other fighters in Yemen in a US air strike, according to the SITE Intelligence Group, which cited the online video. Reuters could not independently verify the video. Ansi's death would suggest the covert US drone program against the Yemen branch of...

    When witnesses in the same building as Charlie Hebdo saw masked men with heavy weaponry enter the building they called police, like anyone in their position would do. But the three unarmed officers on bikes who showed up proved to be most unhelpful in the situation. According to the witness, the officers had to retreat after seeing the men were heavily armed. That wasn’t the only instance during the three-day terror spree where police found themselves utterly unprepared to take on the jihadists. The 27-year-old policewoman who was gunned down just south of Paris while attending a traffic accident was...

    Once again the mainstream media peddled the spoon-fed propaganda that world leaders "led the march" to honor the victims of the Paris shootings last week. Glorious photo-ops of Merkel, Hollande, Poroshenko, David Cameron (oh, and not Barack Obama) were smeared across front pages hailing the "unity in outrage." However, as appears to be the case in so many 'events' in the new normal managed thinking in which we live, The Independent reports, French TV has exposed the reality of the 'photo-op' seen-around-the-world: the 'dignitaries' were not in fact "at" the Paris rallies but had the photo taken on an empty...

    It all started when a University alumnus made a $3 million dollar donation to fund the position of Director of Islamic Studies at Duke University. Bettye Martin Musham, who gifted the Islamic Studies Center with the vast sum of money, said that she was convinced that it was the right thing to do after hearing a lecture on the meaning of jihad. Musham said that she and her husband would later become “hooked with the importance of Islam.” Dr. Omid Safi was appointed to run Islamic Studies at Duke University in July of 2014. He has been the point of...

They're the guys that supposedly blew up Charlie Hebdo and all that. So what's Obama doing? He's releasing Al-Qaeda from Yemen prisoners at Club Gitmo in the middle of all this. I'm watching Fox News today and of course they're trying to understand it because nobody can come to grips -- I'm listening to them ask questions of each other.

Pakistani Muslims demand death sentence for Charlie Hebdo staff for committing 'worst act of terrorism' by drawing the Prophet Mohammed Pakistani Muslims today called for the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists to be hanged for drawing the Prophet Mohammed on its latest front cover. As worldwide protests continued for a second day, nearly 300 people from a religious group rallied in the eastern city of Lahore, carrying placards saying 'Down with Charlie Hebdo'. One banner read: 'Making blasphemy cartoon of the Prophet is the worst act of terrorism. The sketch-makers must be hanged immediately.' Cartoonist Renald Luzier, who drew...

    Qadhafi liked to surround himself with women (whereas Erdogan seems to prefer the opposite, ordering the fairer sex “know their place” and stay at home); and third, Erdogan’s multi-billion dollar embezzlement schemes make the madman of Libya seem, well, a bit modest and unambitious. ... Perhaps no leader was more hypocritical than Erdogan to send a representative, Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, to show up in Paris and march in solidarity against the terrorist attack on Charlie Hebdo. Here’s why: 1.No sooner did Davutoglu return home, than Erdogan's Brownshirts raided newspapers planning to reprint the Charlie Hebdo issue and blocked websites...

    This May Be the Best Cartoon Response to the Charlie Hebdo Massacre Berliner Kurier Magazine Cover: Nein! Unsere Freiheit Könnt ihr nicht ermorden (No! You cannot murder our freedom) For those who found the new Hebdo cover too ambiguous and some of the assorted grieving pencil responses too abstract and detached from what really took place, the Berliner Kurier gets right to the point. The text is simple; “No, you can’t murder our freedom.”
