    (CNSNews.com) - The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is launching an ad campaign to counter billboards posted in the D.C. metro system that urge the defeat of jihad and support for Israel. CAIR claims the anti-jihad advertisements, sponsored by political activist Pamela Geller, inspire “hate.” They are designed to “provoke, stigmatize and demonize” Muslims, CAIR told CNSNews.com. One of the Geller ad reads: “In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad." CNSNews.com asked CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper to explain how the ad is hate speech. “Can you just...

    Western policymakers need to "undertake a systematic study" of Islamic theology and law before they can understand the goals and motives of terrorists who are working to subjugate or convert non-Muslim populations, a scholar on Islam told a gathering in Washington on Tuesday. It would be a mistake to assume that Islam has been "hijacked," argued Robert Spencer, the author of a recent book on the prophet of Islam, Mohammed.

    The first attack on American soil by Islamic terrorists was the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. On 9/11, Islamic terrorists had hoped to kill 40,000 people. The 1993 attack was a dry run that did not give them the bang for their buck. Only six Americans lost their lives that day. It was a great disappointment to the terrorists. Cyanide was in the van that was blown up in the basement-parking garage of the WTC that day, but the extreme heat of the fire destroyed the poisonous gas before it killed anyone. It was a failed experiment. But...

The groups, reacting to the commission's final report, called the recommendations a "step in the right direction," but ultimately inadequate in addressing terrorism's root causes. Many Muslims...
