    The arrest of over 53 people in the United Kingdom is the beginning of the end for once-great Britain. The leaders of the English Defence League (EDL), Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carroll, were among those arrested, as well as Paul Weston of the British Freedom Party (BFP). I spoke with Kevin Carroll about his recent arrest and that of Robinson and Weston, and he told me the appalling details. Carroll told me that British authorities tried everything in the book to stop him from running for police and crime commissioner (PCC) for the Bedfordshire Police Authority. Nonetheless, he officially won...

    'Let the savage, rioting masses know we will not bow to the lunacy of Islam' In 2010 filmmaker and Daily Kos columnist Eric Allen Bell was harvesting all the fruits of an American leftist in Hollywood: connections, lucrative contracts, rising fame and fortune and especially the paternal nod of approval of the powers that be. His peer and co-worker Michael Moore was piling up the Oscars, and all was right with their little version of the world. And then came Bell’s documentary project “Not Welcome,” concerning a Bible Belt backlash against the construction of a 53,000 square-foot mega-mosque. In the...

    President Obama indignantly denied Mitt Romney's charge in Monday's final debate that his foreign policy amounts to "an apology tour" around the world. "This has been probably the biggest whopper that's been told during the course of this campaign," Obama protested. "And every fact-checker and every reporter who's looked at it, governor, has said this is not true." In fact, the president has followed a "doctrine of mea culpa" crafted by a handful of radical advisers who have urged him to, in so many words, apologize for America's war on terror and nuclear superiority. • Samantha Power.

    The final debate between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama Oct. 22 was depressing to watch. The Romney camp had made the decision that only the economy matters in this election, and so arguments about foreign affairs should be avoided. As a result, Mitt Romney won the debate by agreeing with Obama on all major foreign-affairs issues, only differing on how to reach roughly the same goals. During the debate, it became clear that neither Romney nor Obama understands that there are 2.5 million Christians in Syria – over 10 percent of the population. Not a single mention was made of...

    The U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, actually served as a meeting place to coordinate aid for the rebel-led insurgencies in the Middle East, according to Middle Eastern security officials. Among the tasks performed inside the building was collaborating with Arab countries on the recruitment of fighters – including jihadists – to target Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria. The distinction may help explain why there was no major public security presence at what has been described as a “consulate.” Such a presence would draw attention to the shabby, nondescript building that was allegedly used for such sensitive purposes.

    Newly disclosed e-mails show that the State Department and other federal agencies knew within hours of the attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that a local militant Islamist group was claiming responsibility for the action. The State Department e-mails do not offer information that is markedly different from what was already known. Press reports the day after the Sept. 11 attack were already speculating about the involvement of Ansar al-Sharia, a Libyan extremist group with loose ties to Al Qaeda. But they could nevertheless rekindle the controversy over what the Obama administration knew about the terrorist attack, when...

It was reported on September 15 that some in Cairo were paid to protest. These protests and attacks were obviously coordinated by muslim leaders throughout the world, i.e., what they planned for this 9/11 anniversary. You simply don't get protests in dozens of cities all parroting the same reason, without some coordination and management. There are thousands of youtube videos that are offensive to islam, and they have been posted for years,...

    Perhaps the most radical change in U.S. foreign policy under President Obama has occurred here in Egypt, where the Muslim Brotherhood, long shunned as a collection of dangerous Islamist extremists, is now the de facto object of American support. Not only that: Ultraconservative Salafist politicians, who make the Brotherhood seem like moderate pragmatists, are now regular visitors to the U.S. Embassy and, on the theory that it is better to have them inside the tent than out, they are able to visit the United States to learn how things work in the land of Jeffersonian democracy.

But if we take a close look at the Islamic scriptures we can see that it was a con right off the bat! The scriptures state that Mohammad was a great man, and an example for all to follow.

    I have never entertained the idea that Obama was a Muslim and always believed he was a socialist. But Obama’s behavior over the last four years regarding Islam have convinced me that Obama has a Socialist/Islamic-centered worldview – a combination that is not uncommon in many parts of the Muslim world. Having been a journalist in Egypt for six years in the’70s, I have witnessed socialism with an Islamic twist to be a popular political ideology, especially amongst Arab journalists and intellectuals. Socialism and even communism have managed to survive in the ruthless Islamic political system as an alternative to...

    There is something deeper going on than the fact that this is a domestic-policy election with both candidates dragging the discussion into their domestic agendas. Neither Romney nor Obama shows any evidence of comprehending the nature of Islam, or the policy implications of the nature of Islam, or even of Salafist Sunni Islam, which is the dominant force in the "Arab Spring". I think it is a matter of not wanting to face reality. The refusal to face the reality of Islam is endemic in Western society, as Bill Warner says in his talk the history of Islam on Gates...

From the vantage point of this journey, the one striking and overwhelming image I get is of two runaway trains moving in opposite directions. And yet, in some strange way, they are about to cause a global collision. Let me explain. On one train, Islamists are violently demanding that the West bow to them as they seek to take the world back to the Arabian dark ages of the 7th century. On the other, humanists, atheists, greens, and extreme...

And does it have a place on a church marquee? The sign reads, "Vote for the Mormon, not the Muslim! The capitalist, not the communist!" That marquee standing outside a non-denominational church has become the talk of the town in Leakey — about 90 miles northwest of San Antonio. The Church in the Valley is run by Pastor Ray Miller.

Those interviews chosen to be aired quite often seem to show a voter who thinks that Obama will help them since "he's one of us". Sgt.

Fly to Tripoli International Airport, take the Airport Highway into Tripoli, drive along the coast through all those towns and cities you heard about on the radio when the announcers were excitedly describing battles between the brave Libyan rebels and the despicable forces of the despot; Homs, Misrata, Sirte. Drive through the night while hugging the Mediterranean...

    Many people in India know that, according to their narrative, Jews have lived in their country for two thousand years. They are very proud of the fact that Jews have lived there for so long without experiencing indigenous anti-Semitism. It supports their self-perception as an extremely tolerant and welcoming society to foreign religious minorities. "The fact that Jews lived in India without experiencing persecution is part and parcel of contemporary Hindu identity. This is especially significant for Indians as tensions with Muslims become stronger and friction with Christian missionaries is highlighted in the world press. Indians want to be able...

The suspect, who was not immediately identified, was provided the explosives from an undercover FBI agent that he met on the Internet and believed to be an accomplice, the sources said. …

    This information makes up the introductory portion of the briefing that I have been delivering around the country for the past 3 years. It is important given the mounting evidence of Muslim Brotherhood infiltration in the West, and the US in particular. On 22 May 2007, the Pew Research Center, certainly not a “conservative” organization, published a report on a survey that they conducted of Muslims in America. The name of that report was “Muslims in America: Middle Class and Mostly Mainstream.” Pew rolled it out as a celebration of Muslims in America. The media jumped on the bandwagon and...

    obama+muslim+garbWhile discussion of Obama’s connections to his Muslim family in Kenya is an acceptable topic for discussion in the Arab world, it is viewed as a great taboo in the United States. But why is that so? This taboo should be considered unfair at best, purely prejudiced at worst. Is it fair, after all, that we censor such discussions just because Obama’s relatives are Muslim? The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) should condemn the media for keeping a tight lid on the subject, and it’s high time to go beyond what is disclosed by President Obama in his book, Dreams...

    Boosting President Obama's reelection chances Sheik Mohamed ali-Baba, principal spokesman for al Qaeda, demanded that President Obama be reelected. Sheik Mohamed ali-Baba, a well known Islamic scholar, humanitarian, redistributionist and principal spokesman for al Qaeda, today cited the reelection of President Obama as necessary for the survival of the United States under Islam. According to the Sheik, he is the only candidate who understands the beautiful truths of Islam and hence of al Qaeda. The Sheik based his assessment, in part, on President Obama's prompt recognition that the September 11, 2012 unpleasantness at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya was...

    Belgrade (dpa) - If the European Union sets the recognition of Kosovo as a condition for membership, then Serbia "will abandon the European path," President Tomislav Nikolic said in an interview published Tuesday. Nikolic told the Vecernje Novosti daily that Serbia has met the conditions previously set and that new terms would be unacceptable. "We reached a level where we can count on EU membership and now it keeps us at a distance only because of Kosovo," he said. "But it can keep us there the next 100 years and we will not change our position." "If they start adding...

    A nationalist organization has criticized a proposal to construct more mosques in Russia to accommodate an influx of immigrants arriving from Muslim countries in search of employment."This approach is not totally correct," Aleksander Belov, chairman of the Russkiye national movement, told reporters on Tuesday. "It is necessary to decide once and for all whether Russia will turn into an Islamic state or it will remain a secular state, where foreign immigrants arrive, find jobs and leave after their work is finished.""If immigrants…want to build a mosque in my yard, this approach is certainly wrong," he addedIn an effort to “to...

    (Reuters) - A Roman Catholic cardinal has caused an uproar at the Vatican by screening a spurious YouTube video that makes alarmist predictions about the growth of Islam in Europe. The seven-minute clip, called "Muslim Demographics," was the talk of an international gathering of bishops on Monday, two days after Cardinal Peter Turkson screened it during a free discussion period. Turkson, a Ghanaian who is based in the Vatican and is president of its Council for Justice and Peace, sparked consternation among his fellow bishops over the clip. "As we were arriving this morning I was asked several times 'Who...
