    President Barack Obama’s approval rating is higher among Muslims than any other religious group, a new poll says. According to a Gallup poll released Friday that tracked responses for the first six months of 2014, 72 percent of Muslims said they approve of the president, compared with just 20 percent who disapprove.

    Foreign Policy ^ | July 9, 2014 | Kori Schake
    The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham is running a brilliantly effective social media campaign. With the group rebranded as the Islamic State (IS), its grisly messaging gets attention and discourages resistance to its military operations, both where it is fighting and among countries that might be inclined to intervene against it. After it took Mosul, IS streamed video of its men executing dozens of captured Iraqi soldiers -- which very likely helped encourage the choice of Iraqi security forces to quietly desert their posts. IS live-tweeted its military advance through Iraq, showcasing the bravery of its fighters and what...
  • 'Nuclear Terrorism': Hamas Targeting of Dimona Reactor Meets UN Definition

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | July 10, 2014 | Joel B. Pollak
    The terrorist group Hamas claimed late Wednesday that it attempted to target Israel's nuclear reactor in the desert town of Dimona by firing three long-range M-75 rockets at the facility. One of the rockets was destroyed in mid-flight by Israel's Iron Dome system, and two fell harmlessly in the rocky Negev. However, merely by targeting the nuclear facility, Hamas has committed nuclear terrorism, according to United Nations treaties. Article 2 (1) of the International Convention for the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism states: 1. Any person commits an offence within the meaning of this Convention if that person unlawfully...

    Muslims in Nigeria kidnapped 250 underage Christian girls, and brutally gang raped them over and over again before butchering them. One Christian girl curled up into a ball and begged for mercy. The Muslims got all of this on film, to boastfully record their own evils. Senator Zanna, representing Born Central Senatorial District, saw the film and recounted the terrifying memory: Actually the information I’m getting, some of them are very disturbing. Although I don’t want to mention but they are just raping the girls on camera and even showing them on video, releasing it to the public… Somebody told...

    Many photos of demonstration a site... I don’t quite know exactly how many attended the Hamas demo – a thousand or more, but I can tell you this: America has no idea how ugly and vicious the enemy within is. If they did they wouldn’t sleep nights. There is a fifth column that supports this genocide in the cause of Allah. That’s a fact. In between screams of “allahu akbar,” frenzied Muslims chanted the genocidal threat “Khybar, Khybar, ya yahud, jaish Muhammad sa yaoud,” warning the Jews that the armies of Muhammad are coming to exterminate them the way Muhammad...

    No-go Zones (NGZ) are typically referred to as being places where non-Muslims dare not tread, even in their own countries. Take heart. There appears to be a new dynamic at work unfolding in a British town known as Leicester. There, Muslim women who wear burkas in public feel like they’re entering NGZ’s themselves. A new book by two brainiacs at the University of Leicester features the “plight” of these victims: Muslim women who wear a full veil say there are no-go areas in Leicester which they feel frightened to visit – even in a car. They claim they are subjected...

As in the movie Non-Stop, Hollywood would rather cast the family members of 9/11 victims as terrorists rather than reflect that such a thing exists.

Destroying the reactor and unleashing nuclear contamination has been a long-standing goal of Hezbollah, Iran and Hamas. Several days ago the IDF Spokesman’s Twitter account was hacked and a fake message that rockets had hit the reactor and there was a nuclear leak were posted — to cheers from pro-Palestinians on Twitter. According to official sources, the rockets actually fired today either missed or were shot down by Iron Dome. There...

    Escalating crisis drives surge in Iraq's messianic movements The radicalization of Iraqi politics that has contributed to the current crisis in the country can be better understood with an appreciation of the role of Islamic messianism, especially among Iraqi Shiites. This trend may even be more prominent, because if there is a battle for Baghdad, it will be fought along religious and sectarian lines. Political and economic hardships in Iraq have contributed to the rise of radical Messianic movements that claim to represent the return of the Mahdi.

Perry instead would like a substantive meeting to discuss the foreign invasion currently ongoing at Texas' southern border, but Obama doesn't do substantive meetings, and in any case, as the principal facilitator of the southern invasion, any discussions between him and Perry probably ought to be conducted under the auspices of the UN at the Hague or in Vienna or some such.

After enduring such an event, the husband committed suicide. According to one report: In one instance, ISIS members entered the home...

Individuals may abide by Shariah court rulings if they wish, but cannot be legally forced to do so, Judge C. K. Prasad said. "No religion is allowed to curb anyone's fundamental rights," he told the court, giving the decision of a two-judge bench. Indian law does not recognize Shariah court rulings, he said. The court was responding to a petition filed in 2005 by a lawyer who said the Shariah courts should be disbanded for...

    The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham’s (ISIS) was unheard of by the west until a few weeks ago. The al-Qaeda spin-off/startup rapidly invaded and captured large swathes of Iraq and Syria. Inspired by its successes, ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared the captured lands a caliphate. A caliphate is an Islamic state led by a supreme religious and political leader known as a caliph. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been declared the caliph, an earthly successor to Muhammad who will rule over the Islamic state. Al-Baghdadi developed an Islamic Army and has enjoyed more success in a shorter period of...

    In the US, polygamy seems to be most commonly associated with Mormons. TV shows like Big Love, Sister Wives, and My Five Wives offer looks at polygamy, but only from a specific viewpoint. For some Americans, TLC’s reality series Sister Wives, which centers on a fundamentalist Mormon family, may even teach them all they know about polygamy. But the practice of polygamy hasn’t been sanctioned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (which is the official name of the Mormon church) since 1890 when Church President Wilford Woodruff ended the practice. The Mormon church has actually denounced the...

The leader of the powerful Islamic State (IS) militant group was on June 29 declared "caliph" in an attempt to revive a system of rule that ended nearly 100 years ago with the fall of the Ottoman Empire. In a video posted online on Saturday, purportedly the first known footage of Baghdadi, he ordered Muslims to obey him during a Ramadan sermon delivered at a mosque in the northern militant-held Iraqi city of Mosul.

    BEIRUT (AP) — A young, red-bearded ethnic Chechen has rapidly become one of the most prominent commanders in the breakaway al-Qaida group that has overrun swaths of Iraq and Syria, illustrating the international nature of the movement.

In a video released...

    The constitution of a nation is not whats written on paper, but what is written on the hearts of the people.We argue over written laws and state declarations, as though the people will change overnight at the movement of a pen, without ever regarding the internal and spiritual dispossession of a nation’s subjects.The fate of the nation is not dictated by its laws, its constitution, nor its declarations, but on one eternal element: the spirit of the masses.The constitution of Pakistan states: “Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his...

    Muslims in China’s Xinjiang region working as civil servants, students and teachers have been banned from fasting during the holy month of Ramadan on Wednesday. The move has sparked condemnation from an exile group. Xinjiang is a mainly Muslim region, home to the Uighur minority.

Beijing has blamed recent deadly attacks elsewhere in China on militants seeking independence for the resource-rich region. According to Agence France-Presse, the state-run Bozhou Radio and TV university...

    This is a tragic story, but child marriage is routine in the Muslim world. Islamic immigration means that little girls in Australia, America and through the West will be subject to Islamic norms.No amount of laws criminalizing child marriage can change that. Only immigration laws can. An Australian girl who was kidnapped, beaten and married off to her older cousin by her fatherÂ’s family in Syria at the age of 13 has spoken out about her horrific five-year ordeal for the first time.Ms Farrah, who grew up living in SydneyÂ’s southwest and is the daughter of a Syrian Muslim and...
