    NEW DELHI: In what was described by a frequent flyer as the "scariest flight of his life", a passenger on board a Mumbai-Delhi IndiGo flight suddenly turned violent mid-air on Wednesday and started raising Islamic slogans while threatening to harm the aircraft. The situation turned so alarming that the cabin crew and passengers pinned down the flyer, Mursalim Shaikh, 41, and blocked the aisle with a food trolley to prevent him from making a dash for the cockpit. The IndiGo flight 6E 196 made a quick descent in Delhi after seeking priority landing, where Shaikh, a used car dealer from...

    Fausta, a longtime compatriot, just posted the following missive. I am considering ceasing to blog on politics. For eight years I have posted on serious issues taking place in our hemisphere that affect our everyday lives, and, to be honest, I’ve about had it. Every post on Latin America takes time researching sources from the country in Spanish, French or Portuguese, plus English-language reports. And what for? The American media and the American public would care more if the Iranians were making deals with Martians than they care if Hezbollah makes deals with the Zetas right in our own country....

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — The California man behind an anti-Muslim film that led to violence in many parts of the Middle East was sentenced Wednesday to a year in federal prison for probation violations in an unrelated matter, then issued a provocative statement through his attorney. The sentence was the result of a plea bargain between lawyers for Mark Bassely Youssef and federal prosecutors. Youssef admitted in open court that he had used several false names in violation of his probation order and obtained a driver's license under a false name. He was on probation for a bank fraud case....

    Taliban terrorist insurgents told newly re-elected President Barack Obama on Wednesday to admit that the United States has lost the war in Afghanistan and to act accordingly by pulling its troops out of the country immediately. "Obama must by now know that they have lost the war in Afghanistan," said spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid in a statement posted on the Islamists' website, as reported by AFP. "So, without further lying and delays, they should leave our sacred land and focus on their own country instead." "The American administration should stop acting like police in the world and focus on solving their...

Salafis, who revere the era of the salaf (the first three generations of Muslims) and aim to revive it by wearing Arabian clothing, adopting antique customs and assuming a medieval mindset that leads to religious-based violence. 2. Muslim Brothers and like types aspire to an Islamic version of modernity. Depending on circumstances, they might act violently or not. 3. Lawful Islamists...

    Bishop Tawadros will be officially enthroned as Pope Tawadros II, on November 18. The announcement comes amid increased persecution, kidnappings of women and children, harassment of Christians, imprisonment, and killings that the Church has been suffering since the Muslim Brotherhood has come to power. According to Christian Post Africa, it has become increasingly difficult to get permits to build Churches or to repair old ones. Lord David Alton, co-founder of the human rights organization Jubilee Campaign told CBN that “the exodus,” of the Christian community in Egypt has been unprecedented during the past 12 months. Lord Alton went on to...

    We knew the second presidential debate was a setup when Obama told Candy Crowley to read a transcript he wasn't supposed to know she had. To realize there was cheating by the President and the Moderator was bad enough, but one of the real concerns of the Benghazi Terrorist attack of 9/11/12, besides the murder of four Americans being watched by the WH in real time on TV with no rescue attempt, was the insistence in public airings that Islam is a religion of peace (as Bush ignorantly said) and is not a threat, and that our Constitution demands its...

    He had a document entitled, “39 Ways to Serve and Participate in Jihad.” Clearly, then, he is a Misunderstander of Islam, for as we all know (and according to this ridiculous piece in the University of North Carolina student newspaper about our AFDI anti-jihad ads), jihad is "internal struggle that a Muslim experiences as they attempt to live their lives in accordance with Islam." "Since lawful warfare is essentially jihad and since its aim is that the religion is God’s entirely and God’s word is uppermost, therefore according to all Muslims, those who stand in the way of this aim...

    An anonymous internet Email making the cyber rounds about what is really on Barack Obama’s famous gold ring links back to a WorldNetDaily piece by Jerome R. Corsi, put up on October 10, of this year. Does the Obama ring really say, “There is no god except Allah?” Well, depending on what Middle Eastern scholar you talk to, you get a different answer, and the Corsi story is still standing. “So What,” said an international law professor at the University of Kansas to Blaze reporters when they asked him about his take on the inscription on Obama’s ring. “The president...

    American Thinker ^ | November 4, 2012 | Janet Levy
    For the past 25 years, the Muslim Brotherhood in North America has been pursuing a comprehensive strategy to control what non-Muslims know about Islam. This multi-pronged threat doctrine seeks to prohibit open discussion and to abridge free speech. It also seeks to curtail education and training given to the military, law enforcement, intelligence, and government about the true nature of Islam. Overall, the Brotherhood's agenda seeks to block a fair and critical appraisal of Islamic doctrine, pursue a stealth civilizational jihad against the West, and, ultimately, render us impotent to defend ourselves. A review of the Brotherhood's progress in this...

    We know Ambassador Chris Stevens and the CIA were somehow, some way running or heavily involved in an pipeline of money, weapons and information being routed from Libya to Syria through the Muslim Brotherhood and some Saudis. We know Turkey is the nexus, and Libya is the doorway to the Caliphate to get arms in for distribution to Syria, Yemen, Jordan, Egypt and eventually Saudi Arabia. Now, what I suggest here -- for us Freepers to do -- is to begin MAPPING this network of evil, this network of jihadist brigades fighting for the Caliphate. According to Asher Berman, --...

    The ridiculous Malaysian obsession with Jews OCT 24 ? Malaysians are a funny lot. In Selangor it’s easier to find someone who knows more about Israel’s political situation than that of Sabah or Sarawak’s. Last I checked, Israel is much farther away than East Malaysia. Just last year, I walked into a local bookstore at Great Eastern Mall to find a special display dedicated to Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf”, his biographies and Henry Ford’s “The International Jew”. Dear Adolf Hitler admirers, please look at yourself in the mirror. Is your hair the colour of gold? Your eyes as blue as...

    A terrorist front group that bills itself as the nation’s largest Muslim advocacy organization is demanding that a major public school district in south Florida close twice a year to celebrate Islamic holy days. Incredibly, the district’s Diversity Committee is seriously considering it and is holding special meetings to gather information before making the final recommendation. This is all going down in Broward County, which has the nation’s sixth-largest public school system and the second largest in the Sunshine State. The district has more than 258,000 students whose educations are being financed by American taxpayers. Like most of the nation’s...

    Declines Terrorist’s Offer of Help for Storm Victims(CNSNews.com) – The State Department Wednesday expressed “great respect” for Islamic charitable traditions, but declined a terrorist’s offer to dispatch “doctors, relief and rescue experts, food and medicine” to help Americans affected by super storm Sandy. “While we have great respect, obviously, for the Islamic tradition of social assistance to those who are in need no matter where they might be, this particular offer strikes us as very hollow,” State Department spokesman Mark Toner told a briefing. The offer comes from Hafiz Mohammad Saeed, the founder of Lashkar e-Toiba (LeT) and the alleged...

    America is a seething hotbed of “Islamophobia,” filled with ignorant racist rubes who irrationally fear the benign Muslim religion, according to the Obama administration’s lead investigator into the Benghazi atrocities. So said former Ambassador Thomas R. Pickering in more polished, diplomatic language during an Oct. 23 panel discussion at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. The talk was on “what role the faith community can play in fighting Islamophobia,” a make-believe mental illness that Islamists would love to have listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. Radical Islam’s stateside defenders frequently accuse anti-terrorism hawks of “McCarthyism,” hurling...
