    Center for Individual Freedom ^ | 7 Feb 2013 | Quin Hilyer
    There is much to commend, and there are some things to question, about Rand Paul’s big foreign policy speech yesterday at Heritage Foundation. The overall idea of using George Kennan-like “containment” for Iran or for jihadist Islam in general is, well, problematic , although there are plenty of elements of his speech that are at least somewhat sensible. It is a good thing to have discussion of such issues, and there is much value in having people make a thoughtful case against over-eagerness for military intervention. Those of us who tend a little more towards interventionism (”tend” being the key...

    A realist foreign-policy vision that is neither imperialistic nor isolationist.The following is text of a speech delivered by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) at the Heritage Foundation on February 6, 2013.Foreign policy is uniquely an arena where we should base decisions on the landscape of the world as it is . . . not as we wish it to be. I see the world as it is. I am a realist, not a neoconservative, nor an isolationist. When candidate John McCain argued in 2007 that we should remain in Iraq for 100 years, I blanched and wondered what the unintended consequences of...
  • In a Commercial, a Tacit Acceptance of Islam in America

    NY Times ^ | February 8, 2013 | SAMUEL G. FREEDMAN
    On a Sunday afternoon several months ago, I was engaged in one of my favorite religious rituals, watching pro football on television. During a break in the game, I reflexively clicked the “mute” button on the remote control. But my eyes stayed fixed on a startling commercial. The screen showed a balding man with tawny skin and a salt-and-pepper goatee, and seconds later it spelled out his name: Mujahid Abdul-Rashid. The advertisement went on to show him fishing, playing in a yard with two toddlers, and sitting down to a family meal. One week later, again during an N.F.L. game,...

    NEW DELHI: Strongly rejecting the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation's suggestion of allowing an OIC fact- finding mission to Jammu and Kashmir to assess the human rights situation there, India said on Friday the grouping has no "locus standi" on such matters, and termed suggestions to this effect by Pakistan foreign minister as "propagandist". "The OIC has no locus standi on matters concerning the internal affairs of India or the recent incidents on the LoC. We have already clarified that United Nations MIlitary Observers Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) has no relevance in regard to the latter, either." "The propagandist...

    An Egyptian Salafi preacher said raping and sexually harassing women protesters in Cairo’s Tahrir Square is justified, calling them “crusaders” who “have no shame, no fear and not even feminism.” In an online video posted Wednesday, Ahmad Mahmoud Abdullah, known as “Abu Islam” and owner of the private television channel of “al-Ummah,” said these women are no red line. “They tell you women are a red line. They tell you that naked women -- who are going to Tahrir Square because they want to be raped -- are a red line! And they ask Mursi and the Brotherhood to leave...

    The Open Doors 2013 World Watch List reveals that the countries where Christians are worst off are those where the Arab Spring revolts took placeFor the past year, Open Doors, a U.S.-based human rights organisation has been compiling the “World Watch List” which maps the religious freedom situation around the world. According to the data collected for the 2013 list, as many as eight out of ten States that have adopted repressive measures against Christians are Islamic. At the dawn of the third millennium, therefore, state Islam presents itself as an element of deep and continuous repression of religious freedom....

    Iran has unveiled a new home-made combat aircraft, which officials say can evade radar. The single-seat Qaher F313 (Dominant F313) is the latest design produced by Iran's military since it launched the Azarakhsh (Lightning), in 2007. President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad said it had "almost all the positive features" of the world's most sophisticated jets. He said the "development of the Iranian nation's military power is... for deterrence and defensive purposes".

    Herald Scotland ^ | Saturday 2 February 2013
    An investigation is under way after batches of halal meat products sent to prisons were found to contain traces of pork DNA. Pies and pasties have been withdrawn from a number of prisons following the discovery by the Food Standards Agency. UK Justice Minister Jeremy Wright said the incident was absolutely unacceptable. Under Islamic law, Muslims are strictly forbidden to eat pork. The products had been distributed to a number of prisons in England, with no indication that the problem has affected prisoners north of the Border. Mr Wright said the incident was being investigated as a matter of urgency....

    No longer content with preaching Sharia in the mosque, some British Muslims are now attempting to impose Islamic law on the streets. In videos posted on YouTube [1], self-described “Muslim patrols” have filmed themselves berating young women for being inappropriately dressed, seizing cans of beer from men, and burning posters advertising women’s underwear. In another video [2], a mob pursues a man they suspect of being gay down a street, calling him a “fag” and telling him to get out of their “Muslim area.” The videos are the latest example of how many Muslims — particularly young men — are...

Rauf's charity, the Cordoba Initiative, received $3 million from the Malaysian as well as another $167,000 from private donors.

    Saudi cleric Sheikh Abdullah Daoud's comments on child abuse and Islam are raising eyebrows this week, with his "fatwa" issued 2 years ago surfacing. A fatwa is a legal ruling issued by a cleric, which in this case refers to having babies and children cover up. In an interview with the Islamic al-Majd TV channel, the cleric stressed that babies and little girls should be forced to wear a burka, or a veil covering their face, in order to protect them from abuse. Jihad Watch quotes a marriage officiant that speaks for marrying girls as young as 1 year old,...

    While the number of converts remains relatively small in France, yearly conversions to Islam have doubled in the past 25 years, experts say, presenting a growing challenge for France, where government and public attitudes toward Islam are awkward and sometimes hostile. French antiterrorism officials have been warning for years that converts represent a critical element of the terrorist threat in Europe, because they have Western passports and do not stand out. In October, the French police conducted a series of antiterrorism raids across France, resulting in the arrests of 12 people, including at least three French citizens who had recently...

    For anyone unfamiliar with the Southern Poverty Law Center, you would not gain much insight judging by their name. Rarely, if at all does anything they do relate to poverty, except maybe to bring some citizens closer to it. Granted, some of the work they do is for the good. The SPLC is a private organization with strong ties to the federal government, namely the FBI, the BATF and the DOJ. They primarily infiltrate, investigate and collect data on organizations that have been labeled as “Hate Groups.” Then, they turn this information over to federal authorities, providing the evidence to...
