    Four were killed in three different incidents in the sprawling port city and the fifth in the northwestern city of Peshawar, on the second day of a nationwide three-day drive against the disease, which is endemic in Pakistan. Sagheer Ahmed, the health minister for Sindh province, of which Karachi is capital, said he had ordered a halt to the anti-polio drive in the city in the wake of the shootings. Senior Karachi police officer Shahid Hayat said another polio worker was shot dead in the city on Monday, but the circumstances of his death only became clear on Tuesday. In...

Sharia Islamic law strictly applied in Saudi Arabia stipulates death as a punishment for apostasy, but defendants are usually given the chance to repent and escape being beheaded.

    A law firm that defends and promotes Christian heritage and moral values says it has obtained a document that vindicates an 18-year veteran Army officer who is being disciplined for telling the truth about Islam. The Thomas More Law Center says it has obtained more evidence to prove its contention that the Pentagon is taking its marching orders from Islamic groups in taking extreme disciplinary action against Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley, a 1994 graduate of the United States Military Academy. The highly decorated armor officer was excoriated and relieved of a teaching assignment because he discussed negative aspects of Islam...

    Kabul –  A car bomb exploded outside of a compound housing a U.S. military contractor in the Afghan capital Monday, blowing apart an exterior wall, killing at least two Afghan workers and wounding more than a dozen other people, company representatives and police said. In another part of the country, a suspected landmine killed 10 young girls, police said. The blast on the outskirts of Kabul sent a plume of smoke up in the air and shook windows more than a mile away in the city center.

    The Hamas-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, is running another new propaganda ad campaign. This time it’s a deceptive #MyJihad bus ad designed to distract from and obscure the true meaning of jihad. Freedom fighters have successfully educated the American people about the most brutal and extreme system of governance, the Shariah: Americans know how inhuman it is, and Muslim Brotherhood operatives are still reeling from that stunning defeat. So now they hope to whitewash jihad? That’s oceans of blood they would have to conceal. Oceans of blood. One of CAIR's deceptive #MyJihad bus ads Americans need to understand...

    National Review Online ^ | December 15, 2012 | Andrew C. McCarthy
    In Cairo on Wednesday, a Coptic Christian blogger named Alber Saber was convicted of blasphemy and “contempt of religion.” There’s a tragic irony: As any of the country’s Christians can tell you, contempt of religion is not merely permitted but encouraged in the new, post-Mubarak Egypt. What is criminal, what has become increasingly perilous, is any criticism of Islam.Nor is truth a defense. Another Egyptian court recently upheld the blasphemy conviction of Makarem Diab, also a Coptic Christian. Diab had gotten into a discussion with a Muslim acquaintance, Abd al-Hameed, who, in the course of mocking Diab’s faith, insisted that Jesus...

    People often make comments to the effect that there is no relationship between being Muslim and paedophilia, that this non-indigenous religious group has been unjustly targeted. As an example, here's what I found posted in a student forum: What I've never been able to grasp is why whenever middle-eastern men commit a crime, they are not identified by their nationality, but by their religion? This is blatantly an attempt to make Islam look bad. If a brit were to rape a teenager, it wouldn't say "Chrisitan [sic] male rapes teenager". How do you even know that these people are in...

    A new Army manual that warns American soldiers in Afghanistan to avoid talking about certain topics has unwittingly acknowledged that Western taboos such as pedophilia are an inherent part of Islamic culture. “By mentioning that pedophilia and women’s rights and saying that soldiers should not mention such things they are tacitly admitting that those things are indeed part of Islam,” said Robert Spencer, founder of Jihad Watch. According to the Wall Street Journal, a new 75-page Army manual suggests U.S. soldiers are to blame for the large number of deadly attacks on them by Afghan security forces. The manual reportedly...

Al-Gaheem, the former owner of two Dayton View businesses and the imam of Masjid At-Taqwa mosque, was the second of four defendants to be sentenced in the case.

    Islam expert: 'These are dictatorships that have a double face' Massive protests filled the streets of Cairo in recent weeks following the announcement from new Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi that he was greatly expanding his powers and that they would not be subject to judicial review. Many of the same demonstrators who demanded more freedom and the resignation of Hosni Mubarak almost two years ago angrily rejected Morsi’s power grab. Eventually, Morsi relented and declared he would not pursue the expanded powers. But before anyone expects a tidal wave of freedom in Egypt, Arabs for Israel founder Nonie Darwish warned...

    The whole “conspiracy theory” of the Obama administration being infiltrated by the Muslim Brotherhood, purging government documents critical of Islam, and seeking to criminalize the criticism of Islam is just that—a conspiracy theory—isn’t it? Sadly, it isn’t. If you simply pull back the curtain and look at what Obama has been doing in plain sight—inviting groups convicted of terrorism into the White House, having Muslim Brotherhood members within the State Department, purging training materials of anything critical of Islam–you would find that this whole “conspiracy theory” goes by another term: the truth.

The Muslim Council of Britain was pleased with the new data, saying Muslims were playing a “significant part in increasing diversity in Britain.” Of the roughly 56.07 million people counted in the census, 33.24 million described themselves as “Christian” while 2.7 million identified as Muslims, an increase from 3.0 percent...

At issue is the Michigan state legislature’s House Bill No. 4769, which looks likely to pass in coming days. Quite simply, that bill states that no foreign law may take precedence over American law or Michigan state law in a Michigan court room. The key provision of the bill is Section 2, which says: “A court, arbitrator, administrative agency, or other adjudicative, mediation, or enforcement authority shall not enforce a foreign law...

    During Egyptian presidential elections, one of the biggest criticisms against President Mohammed Morsi was that he was just a stooge for the Muslim Brotherhood’s Supreme Guide, Mohammed Badie — who recently called for a jihad on Israel. The logic was that Morsi’s function was simply to fulfill the Guide’s will, which is the absolute Islamization of Egypt. Of course, the Brotherhood and Morsi brushed aside such talk, saying the latter was his own man, that his policies for Egypt would have nothing to do with Brotherhood interests, that he was a president for all Egyptians, etc., etc. Amazingly, however, a...

    OHIO: ‘Anti-Islam’ speaker WILL appear at Mansfield Senior High School despite CAIR’s anti-first amendment attempts to have him banned THAT WAS THEN: Cleveland, March 28, 2011: The Ohio chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Ohio) today welcomed a decision by a school board in that state to cancel an anti-Islam Tea Party event featuring a speaker, Usama Dakdok, who claims Muslims are demons and that there is no good Muslim. CAIR-Ohio, the NAACP, ACLU and other civil rights and interfaith groups scheduled a news conference this morning at the Board of Education in Mansfield, Ohio, to address the negative...
  • Fareed Zakaria wants to end the war on terror and replace it with nothing

    The CNN-appointed 5th estate "expert" on foreign affairs now wants an end to the war on terrorism. That is what he said in his op-ed piece on CNN today (December 9th, 2012). Fareed dismisses the war as immoral, impractical, and unnecessary without saying what will replace it. Knowing Fareed, he wants to replace counterterrorism with a universal joining of hands in an international love-fest that will erase all hate and anger. Such is the ignorance and naiveté of the mainstream media. Fareed is a unilateralist, believing that the West is in complete control and that every action and reaction regarding...

    One of the unofficial mottos of the United States, this phrase-which is minted on this country’s coins and emblazoned upon our paper bills-embodies the common heritage of the American nation, which was created from the union of thirteen distinct, unique former British colonies. Over the course of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, it came to symbolize the melting pot forged from a collection of people who came to the United States from various European nations in order to reconstitute their lives. It is a concept that, like many of its inhabitants, has become alien to contemporary America. We now...

    A mother who beat her son to death for failing to learn the Koran by heart murdered him and burned his body to hide the evidence, a jury has found.Sara Ege, 33, treated her son Yaseen like a "dog," brutally beating him with a stick for failing to memorise religious texts. The seven-year-old died in July 2010 from internal injuries caused by three months of punishing beatings from his own mother. Ege accused her husband, Yousef, of being the real killer throughout her murder trial at Cardiff Crown Court. But he was cleared on Wednesday of failing to act to...

    If caught, a fine of $180 will be imposedA village council in the eastern Indian state of Bihar has banned the use of mobile phones by women, saying the phones were "debasing the social atmosphere" by leading to elopements - a move that set off outraged protests from activists. In addition to the ban, the Sunderbari village council in a Muslim-dominated area some 385 kilometers (239 miles) east of Patna, the capital of Bihar, has also imposed a fine of 10,000 rupees ($180) if a girl is caught using a mobile phone on the streets. Married women would have to...

    Near the bottom of the pit of hell, Dante encounters a man walking with his torso split from chin to groin, his guts and other organs spilling out. “See how I tear myself!” the man shrieks. “See how Mahomet is deformed and torn!” For us, the scene is not only gruesome but surprising, for Dante is not in a circle of false religion but in a circle reserved for those who tear the body of Christ. Like many medieval Christians, Dante views Islam less as a rival religion than as a schismatic form of Christianity. A handful of Western scholars...

    The Taliban commit a relentless series of anti-human, anti-life acts on a daily basis, and not only does no one care, but Obama stalks them for peace. Stalks them. And the more he stalks, the more savage and brazen their war on humanity becomes. They're taunting us with their savagery. And Obama's subservient policy to these savages pains me as an American, and as a lover of life and of freedom. It makes me physically ill. And don't think this won't come back to haunt us, in spades. Tragic death of the Afghan girl who just wanted to change her...
  • ANOTHER COVER UP? More on the Arizona Jihadi, Abdullatif Aldosary

    Earlier this week we posted about Abdullatif Aldosary, an Iraqi Muslim refugee who set off an IED at a Social Security office in Arizona. As we reported then, an FBI source told investigative reporter Patrick Poole at PJMedia that Aldosary would not be charged with terrorism, due to “political sensitivities.” Now Poole has uncovered more about Aldosary which reveals yet another cover up by the Obama administration to avoid having to admit that we have been hit again by a Jihadist terrorist. According to Poole, the DHS had previously concluded that Aldosary had been involved in terrorist “activities,” and a...

    One empire falls and another rises in its place. It’s an old story and it is what we are seeing in the Middle East. The Islamist resurgence was fed by the collapse of two world powers, the USSR and the US. The fall of the Soviet Union robbed the Arab Socialist dictatorships of their support. The last of these, Syria, is now under siege, by Sunni Islamist militias. Egypt’s Sadat had made the move to the American camp early enough to avoid the fate of Syria or Iraq, but instead his successor, Mubarak, encountered the fate of the Shah of...

    Why wasn't Aldosary deported? Did someone intercede on his behalf? If so, who, and on what grounds? Or was this just another in a seemingly endless line of accommodations to Muslims and Islam by the Obama Administration -- accommodations that were probably designed to show good will and discourage terrorism? We can see from this incident how spectacularly this endeavor has succeeded. Not that anyone in Washington would dare contemplate abandoning it, no matter what the failure rate may be.
