    BEIRUT – The Syrian regime is arming and training Syrian women to fight for President Bashar al-Assad, putting it out in front of the Pentagon when it comes to sending women to the front lines. A video posted on Russia Today’s Arabic channel from the central city of Homs shows dozens of women in combat fatigues marching around a training ground carrying Kalashnikovs, performing drills and chanting slogans in support of Assad. “Be prepared Syria. Stand up Assad,” they shout. “With our blood and our soul we protect you Bashar.” The trainer explains that the women are trained to use...

    After four years of pretending there is no jihad against the free world, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton blurted out the truth during her testimony on the Benghazi jihad massacre Wednesday: “We now face a spreading jihadist threat,” she said, adding: “We have to recognize this is a global movement.” We do? Yet the Obama administration has for years steadfastly and repeatedly denied both that there was a jihadist threat at all and that it was a global movement. So far has the Obama administration been from acknowledging that there was a jihad threat that less than two months into...

    Can we at least agree that reports of al-Qaeda’s death have been greatly exaggerated? You’ll recall that Peter Bergen, a director at the New America Foundation and the national-security analyst for CNN, began pronouncing AQ dead last summer. At the Aspen Institute, he even gave a speech titled “Time to Declare Victory: Al Qaeda Is Defeated.” He defended this thesis repeatedly, including in a debate with me on Wolf Blitzer’s show on CNN. President Obama has not gone quite that far. Prior to the election, in stump speeches round the country, he said al-Qaeda had been “decimated.” And even in...

    Lego has been accused of racism by the Turkish community over a Star Wars model that supposedly resembles one of Istanbul’s most revered mosques. tria’s Turkish community said the model was based on Hagia Sophia mosque in Istanbul and that the accompanying figures depicted Asians and Orientals as people with “deceitful and criminal personalities.” The Turkish Cultural Community of Austria released a statement calling for Lego to apologise for affronting religious and cultural feelings. The anger was provoked by “Jabba’s Palace”, a model of the home of Jabba the Hutt from Lego’s Star Wars product range based on the blockbusting...

    Russia sends two aircraft to evacuate its citizens and refugees from Syria. As expected, Emergencies Ministry aircraft IL-76 and Yak-42 will evacuate those who wish to leave Syria on January 22nd. The people will be evacuated from the Lebanese capital of Beirut. The aircraft will take about 100 people, while the number of refugees is estimated at about 150 people. The plan to evacuate Russians from Syria was elaborated in December. By then estimates, there were about 5,300 Russian people staying in Russia, plus those people, who were not registered in consular offices - women who married Syrian men and...

    WASHINGTON: The United States has ruled out any extradition for the American-born Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorist David Headley, in lieu of providing critical information to the US agencies about various other terror outfits. The Mumbai attack accused also agreed to cooperate with the government, as well as any foreign judicial proceedings held inside the US through video conferencing or deposition, attorney Gary S Shapiro informed a Chicago court on Tuesday. The attorney ruled out any extradition for the 26/11 accused under a guilty plea that the Pakistani-American had entered into with the US government and in lieu of the co-operation he...

    Washington - The United States has sought a jail term of 30 to 35 years for American born Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist David Headley for his role in Mumbai attack and other terror activities. "The government submits that a sentence of 30 to 35 year's imprisonment strikes a fair and just balance between the aggravating and mitigating factors applicable to Headley." "While there is no question that his criminal conduct was deplorable, his decision to cooperate, and the uniquely significant value that cooperation has provided to the government's efforts to combat terrorism, support the government's recommendation," Attorney Gary S Shapiro said in...

    "There was no evidence that the chain set out to deceive customers." So why the $700,000 payout? Pamela Geller asks: "So meat producers in the US who are selling unlabeled meat that is halal should be the target of a multi-million dollar lawsuit, no?" And David Wood observes:"Some Dearborn Muslims may have been given non-halal chicken at McDonalds. It could have been worse, however. They could have been thrown in jail for answering questions, as we were at the 2010 Arab Festival. But apparently what happens to Christians doesn't matter in Dearborn." "McDonald's settles Mich. suit over Islamic diet," by...

    On Jan. 7, exactly two weeks before we are to simultaneously celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and inaugurate Barack Obama to his second term as President of the United States, sinister advertisements went up in dozens of subway stations around New York City, making evident that despite the undoubted strides our nation has made toward achieving justice and equality, bigotry and fear-mongering remain alive and well in America. The American Freedom Defense Initiative, headed by Pamela Geller, an inflammatory demagogue with a long history of anti-Muslim incitement, purchased space in 39 stations for ads with an...

    Andrew McCarthy: Don't think Obama will release him? Not so fast! An ugly and confusing terrorist attack at an Algerian gas facility is getting even more troubling as the Islamic radicals now demand the release of Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman and another prominent terrorist in exchange for the remaining American hostages. Abdel Rahman is the blind sheikh now serving a life sentence for masterminding the 1993 attack against the World Trade Center. Terrorists are also demanding the release of Aafia Saddiqui, who is imprisoned on her conviction for attempted murder. And the captors in Algeria are not the only ones...

    Why an adoring press crowns Obama with every honorary title – except this one The craze started when Nobel-winning author Toni Morrison, writing in the New Yorker in 1998, described Bill Clinton as the “first black president.” Everybody got it: “White skin notwithstanding,” explained Morrison, “this is our first black President. Blacker than any actual black person who could ever be elected in our children’s lifetime. After all, Clinton displays almost every trope of blackness: single-parent household, born poor, working-class, saxophone-playing, McDonald’s-and-junk-food-loving boy from Arkansas.” Thus was born an enduring cultural idiom Atlantic Wire recently called the “first something president”...

    Again and again, we see all of the fallacies and delusions of Western "leaders" and the media elite crumble in the face of reality. Breaking news is a Canadian was in charge of the jihadist operations at the Algerian gas plant. How do we tell the players? How do we know which of our co-workers and neighbours aren't THEM? Anwar Awlaki, the imam to the 911 Muslim terrorists (who assisted in the purchase of their airplane tickets) was invited to dine and preach at the Pentagon. The global jihad transcends borders, nantionalities, race creed or colou. It is the ideology...

Sheikh Rahman's jihad was bring down the towers in 1993, in order to slaughter tens of thousands of Americans. There are whispers that Obama is negotiating behind the scenes with the Muslim Brotherhood to "transfer" (release) the Blind Sheikh to Egypt (like Scotland's release of the Lockerbie bomber to Libya, where he was summarily released.)

    Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi says those criticizing his rants against Jews “are taking my remarks out of context.” “It is easy for those living in comfort to overlook the incessant insult the Jewish prosperity in Israel inflicts upon its neighbors,” Morsi complained. “Faced with the same inhospitable environment as we are in Egypt, the Israelis mock our grinding poverty by living well. They have no oil wells, no gold mines to make them rich. That they are makes us look like fools.” Morsi attributed Jewish prosperity to “satanic powers. What else could it be?

    Exclusive: Pamela Geller blasts Obama for lack of leadership in 'act of war' The Algerian hostage crisis came to a bloody end Saturday when Special Forces stormed the BP gas complex after the jihadists executed their non-Muslim POWs. At least 81 people have been killed, including two Americans. They were holding more than 600, but they released all the Muslims, saying “they did not want to hurt Muslims. Some locals were forced to recite parts of the Koran to prove they were Muslims.” The jihadists called their non-Muslim hostages “kuffar,” an ugly word meaning unbelievers. One Muslim hostage said: “Us...

    Canadian passports found on badly burned bodies of two insurgents. One Frenchman among the terrorists... Some of the gunmen 'given short-term contracts by the oil and gas giant'. Attackers 'arrived in cars painted in colours of Algerian state energy firm'. Two of the dead Islamists from Canada were found in the smouldering remains of a compound at the BP gas plant. One security source today confirmed that the Canadians are suspected of having travelled to Libya, where they joined extremists waging Jihad against the west. The men's badly charred corpses were found close to their victims, many of whom had...

    As conditions in Mali deteriorate into another ‘international effort’ against Islamists, the automatic support from conservatives for military intervention is on a sharp decline. As results of previous campaigns become clear and information is gathered, those on Canada’s political right have started to raise questions about the factions involved, as well as possible outcomes. Born from the aftermath of the deceptive ‘Arab Spring’, a bill of goods sold to the general public by Western governments and the media as ‘democracy taking root’ and ‘the Arab world’s Tiananmen square’ which ended up as nothing more than an exchange of corrupt, morally...

    WE ALL have a favourite album. Mine is Talking Timbuktu, the collaboration between the great Malian musician Ali Farka TourÎą and Ry Cooder. Arguably itÂ’s some of the best guitar playing youÂ’ll ever hear. Ali died in 2006 but his son Vieux carries the sound onward, that curious mix of African soul and heart with a blues base. So it was with utter horror that I heard Lucy Duran, who hosts the BBC programme World Routes and teaches the anthropology of world music at SOAS, say in an emotional comment this week that one of the terrible side effects of...
