    U.S. on alert for Islamist ire to ‘Zero Dark Thirty’Film depicts harsh interrogation methods By Kristina Wong The Washington Times Thursday, December 20, 2012 **SNIP** Yet fears of a violent backlash against “Zero Dark Thirty,” which goes into wide release in the U.S. on Jan. 11, are swirling in some corners of Washington and appear to be accentuated by a public perception of a U.S. government consultative role in pre-production research for the film. Radical corners of the Muslim world have been known to fan the flames around perceived official U.S. involvement with material considered blasphemous, as happened this autumn...

    NEW YORK CITY -- It hasn't been an easy time -- year, decade, early century -- for organized religion. Books by atheists proliferate, some meaner than others. Fewer men and women attend church or synagogue services. The season highlights Christmas and in recent years Hanukkah, but the cultural emphasis is more materialistic than meditative. Confidence in organized religion has declined to 44 percent, as measured by Gallup. When tragedy strikes, as in Newtown, Conn., prayer resides mostly in the shadows of those personally affected. The public ritual requires politicians to assure survivors of their thoughts and prayers -- what one...

    Reality check on Syria and who Obama is backing. Heads are going to roll (no pun intended) over at the Puff Ho. Someone didn't get the memo on the Muslim Brotherhood. Notice that the few of us who have a spot-on record of predicting events in Egypt, Libya, and now Syria are still marginalized and prohibited from weighing in on the oped pages of big media. Expect no mea culpas from the media or a reversal of coverage. It's a death march. And the more wrong they are, the more they dig in their hooves. "Expert: West Helping Wahabbi Winter...
  • The World's Fastest Growing Religion (Either Christianity or Islam, Depending on Location)

    Real Clear Religion ^ | 11/13/2012 | Philip Jenkins
    I'm often asked, "What is the world's fastest growing religion?"Questioners are stirred both by hope -- that "our" religion is so evidently the best that it is sweeping the world -- but also by the fear that "they" (usually Muslims) are going to overwhelm us. Actually, that growth question crosses faith boundaries. Wikipedia's entry on "Claims to be the Fastest-Growing Religion" collects many such boasts, which variously claim the prize for Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, Wicca, Deism, the Falun Gong, Scientology, and other competitors. Obviously, even compiling such a list has the tongue-in-cheek implication that most such claims are bogus or...

    Europe nearly "exterminated" all of its Jews, and chose instead to import tens of millions of Muslims. As country after country caves and cowers to Islamic supremacist demands, violence and hatred, the Jews, the most despised of people under Islam, are fleeing in droves -- and those who stay must hide. Europe will reap what she has sown. This rampant violence and hate is never covered by the mainstream media. Instead we are subjected to the non-stop fiction of of "islamophobia" and the mythical victimhood narrative employed by Islamic supremacists and their media quislings. Christians, of course, will suffer the...

    This is being reported a Syrian rebel declaration, but Ahmad Al Baghdadi Al Hassani is a Shiite Grand Ayatollah who hails from Iraq. He appears to be affiliated with some Syrian faction, but it’s unclear exactly which one, and has had his clashes with other Grand Ayatollahs. Grand Ayatollah Ahmad Al Baghdadi Al Hassani’s declaration that Christians are polytheists is not unprecedented, but it does serve as a reminder of how fragile even Dhimmi People of the Book status is. Jihadi leader Ahmad Al Baghdadi Al Hassani has spoken of Christians as polytheists and friends of the Zionists, in an...

    A 22-year-old man from Drogheda who earlier this year joined rebels battling to oust Syrian president Bashar al-Assad has been killed by regime forces in the northern province of Idlib. Hudhaifa ElSayed was shot dead on Tuesday during a skirmish between rebels and forces loyal to Assad. Syrian state media reported he had been killed but the exact circumstances surrounding his death remain unclear. He was one of an estimated 10-20 men from Ireland who have joined the Syrian uprising as rebels. Mr ElSayed was born in Egypt but his family moved to Ireland when he was a young boy...

    New Delhi: India is unhappy with the US' decision to give immunity to Pakistani spy agency, ISI, in a civil case by families of the Americans who were killed in the 26/11 attacks. In a statement, the ministry of external affairs (MEA) rebuked the US state department, saying, "For India, it remains of vital importance that justice is done and that those who organized and perpetrated this horrible crime be brought to justice, irrespective of the jurisdiction under which they may reside or be operating. It cannot be that any organization, state or non-state, that sponsors terrorism enjoys immunity. "From...

    Obama's selective sympathy concerning Newtown is political exploitation at its most cynical and debased. Where was Obama's concern, empathy and calls for thorough investigation of Fort Hood and Benghazi? Obama's knee jerk opportunism to exploit the horrible death of these children to pursue his political end (harmful gun control legislation) is in sharp contrast to his reponse to the Fort Hood mass murder. He attempted to silence concerns about jihad when he declared that no one should "rush to judgement" (despite the fact that Hasan was wearing the garb of the shaheed the morning of his jihad, was giving out...

    Muslim leaders have demanded the same legal exemptions as the Church of England in legislation to introduce gay marriages. The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB), with more than 500 affiliated mosques, charities and schools, said it was "appalled" by "utterly discriminatory" legislation on same-sex marriage set out by the government. The proposals would allow faith groups to conduct gay marriages but would ban the CofE and the Church in Wales from doing so. The MCB secretary-general, Farooq Murad, said his organisation had strongly opposed gay marriage alongside other religions and was seeking an urgent meeting with culture secretary, Maria Miller,...
  • Mark Levin on Newtown speech: ‘How come Obama did not mention Fort Hood?’

    On his Monday radio show, conservative talker Mark Levin was critical of President Barack Obama’s Sunday address regarding the heartbreaking Newtown, Conn., shooting deaths of 20 children and six adult victims. Obama’s address, Levin said, omited any mention of the November 2009 shooting at Fort Hood, Texas — which killed 13 and wounded 29 others. “Over the weekend, the president was speaking and, really, when he got to his politics it was just stomach-turning,” Levin said. “There he is, in the middle of that little town … and he named four instances in where there were, what — massacres? But...

    "Christians must choose 'Islam or death,' while their women and daughters may legitimately be regarded as wives of Muslims" The enemedia's criminal silence on the relentless and bloody march of Islamic surpremacists on the backs and the bodies of non-Muslims is a war crime, too. And worse, the media is complicit in helping to destroy those who dare to speak out against ethnic cleansing, persecution of religious minorities, the bloody punishments of the sharia.

    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...

    A Saudi court on Monday referred a rights activist to a higher court for alleged apostasy, a charge that could lead to the death penalty ... ... 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. Saudi blogger Hamza Kashgari was deported in February from Malaysia to the kingdom and is being held in jail to face charges of blasphemy over Twitter comments deemed insulting to the Prophet Mohammed. Kashgari's comments triggered a wave of calls to execute him, although he...

    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...
