  • Muslim Judge In U.S. Court: If You Mock Muhammed You Deserve To Get Beaten

    President Obama apologized to Afghani terrorists who killed two American soldiers yesterday, saying Obama would punish any American troops who discard copies of the Koran, which were burned with the trash, upsetting the violent Muslims who killed our troops. “I assure you that we will take the appropriate steps to avoid any recurrence, to include holding accountable those responsible,” said Obama. A witchhunt will ensue, to find and punish the American soldiers Obama blames for mishandling the Muslim book. Sadly the Obama Administration defended buring Bibles in 2009, but he kowtows for the Koran. Meanwhile another American Judge Mark Martin,...

    Here me out before you conclude. I have a rational argument for what I am proposing. In WWII, to defeat Japan America used psychological warfare as part of the battle. They knew that the ultimate destruction of the Japanese Empire at that time was to defame their leader/god figure. By humiliating him on national television forcing him to claim to the world that he is indeed not god and that he has been defeated allowed Japan to succeed and renew in the future. What we did is why Japan is such a successful country today. Islam is using that exact...

    After heated debates in two dozen states over banning Sharia law, the legal code of Islam, a national Islamic group is beginning a multi-million dollar effort to explain how Sharia applies to the lives of American Muslims. The Islamic Circle of North America, a New York-based group, is spending $3 million on its Defending Religious Freedom campaign, which kicks off Monday and explains Sharia law and common misunderstandings.
  • Why No Coverage of This Odd Obama Remark about Religion? ("Islam demonstrates religious tolerance")

    American Thinker ^ | 03/02/2012 | Fred J. Eckert
    As the media were blanketing airwaves and newspapers with nonstop coverage of old controversial religion-related remarks by Rick Santorum, something happened that compelled the media to also raise questions about a far more controversial remark that President Obama had made regarding religion. Did you miss the widespread news coverage these past days in which that really odd comment that Obama made about religion came back to embarrass him and embroil him in great controversy? Yes, you missed it -- such coverage never occurred. It should have -- and the fact that it didn't tells yet another distressing story about the...

    Late last year, a Florida court used Sharia law to decide a case it was considering. This set off a firestorm of dissent, even reaching the studios of Fox News, where Eric Bolling opined on “The Five” that “if this sets precedent, there [may well] … be a day where a judge says, ‘By the way, under Sharia law, you ripped off, you stole that thing over there. We need to cut your left hand off.’” Then last week, the Florida House Judiciary Committee approved HB 1209, an anti-Sharia bill, by a 14-1 vote. In January, the Florida House Civil...
  • The U.S. Military Should Hand Out Qurans in Afghanistan as a Good-Will Gesture (He's serious!)

    Days after President Obama’s apology for the U.S. military’s inadvertent burning of Qurans in a Bagram Air Base trash pit, the death toll in Afghanistan continues to rise. At least 30 Afghans are dead, as are four Americans. Two U.S. soldiers were gunned down by a man wearing an Afghan Army uniform and another two were killed inside Afghanistan’s Interior Ministry, which runs that nation’s intelligence services. Six others narrowly escaped death when protesters threw a bomb at American forces. They are being treated for their wounds, some of which are severe. And this might just be the beginning. The...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Of the roughly 630 million of the world's adults who desire to move to other countries, less than one-tenth of them -- about 48 million adults -- tell Gallup they are planning to move in the next 12 months. Less than half of those who are planning to move -- about 19 million adults -- are taking necessary steps such as applying for visas or residency and purchasing tickets. Potential migrants in the Middle East and North Africa were the most likely worldwide to say they plan to leave their countries permanently in the next 12 months....

    The collapse of American will. More sharia provisions in the military. Non-Muslims are not allowed to handle the quran unless they are considering converting to Islam or are being targeted for conversion. "Unless your military dog tags identify you as of the Muslim faith, you cannot obtain a copy of the Quran from the military chaplain." So American soldiers who wish to study the quran to understand the enemy threat doctrine are disarmed and subjected to enemy propaganda instead. Abject surrender to a comprehensive legal system that mandates our subjugation and annihilation. Christian Soldiers Banned from The Quran in the...

    An Afghan government website has reported that NATO officials have promised to bring the American soldiers responsible for burning the Koran to justice in an open trial. The website of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan Government Media and Information Center (an official government site) states: "NATO officials promised to meet Afghan nation’s [sic] demand of bringing to justice, through an open trial, those responsible for the incident and it was agreed that the perpetrators of the crime be brought to justice as soon as possible." If this is true, and we do not know yet if it is, handing over...

The new Islamic centers serve Muslims who moved into the suburbs and newer immigrants from Africa, Iraq and elsewhere.

    ROME – Returning to Georgia Tuesday for several days of campaigning, Newt Gingrich accused Pakistan of hiding Osama bin Laden before U.S. Navy SEALs assassinated him during a daring night raid last May and said the United States should reevaluate its relationship with Islamic countries. "We now know that the Pakistanis for seven years were hiding bin Laden in a military city within a mile of their national defense university," the former Georgia congressman told hundreds of supporters gathered in an airplane hangar in Rome. "Does any serious person believe that could have been done without a significant part of...

A Quran is burned in Afghanistan, a Quran that was used to transmit plots against our troops, and Obama is apologizing. And our generals are apologizing. And the Pentagon is apologizing. America, where are you on this? Obama apologizes, they burn him in effigy. Brilliant, Obama, brilliant. And the band plays on. On Saturday,...

    The number of American mosques grew by 74 percent in the past decade and are increasingly found in the suburbs, according to a national survey by a coalition of Muslim groups. The 2011 U.S. Mosque Survey counted 2,106 mosques in the United States, 246 in California and 62 in the Bay Area. "This building boom is indicative of the growing financial resources of the Muslim community as many Muslims have lived in the U.S. for many decades now and their financial resources have improved," wrote study author Ihsan Bagby, an associate professor of Islamic studies at the University of Kentucky....

    A man who says he represents the United Muslim Nations International organization has warned WND to “moderate” its reporting on issues involving Islam because of how Muslims may react. The warning came in an email to WND from Faarooq al Mohammedi, who said he was asking on behalf of the Muslim organization that WND “comply as it would be in the companies (sic) best interest as we would not want to take you down the same rout (sic) as we have with other non-complaint media firms.” Ads by Google 1 Trick to Live HappierThis ridiculously easy way to live happier...

    National borders from the eastern Mediterranean to the Iranian border were made after the breakup of the Ottoman Empire in 1918. Britain and France, with little consideration for sectarian or ethnic realities, drew lines across the area and established the new countries of Iraq and Syria. As authoritarian regimes disappear under the weight of the 2003 US invasion of Iraq and the ongoing uprising in Syria, regional boundaries may be redrawn by indigenous peoples and regional powers. Five new states could emerge: Shi'ite Iraq, Sunni Iraq, Sunni Syria, Greater Kurdistan, and Shi'ite Syria. Shi'ite Iraq Sunnis governed the Mesopotamian area...

    The killing in Kabul on Saturday of two high-ranking American military officials - a colonel and a major - serving with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) will prompt a paradigm shift in regional security. Afghanistan surges as still America's number one "hot spot", over-shadowing Syria and Iran. If President Barack Obama thought it was time for the United States military to "pivot" toward the Asia-Pacific, it has been delusionary thinking. The Taliban retain a big say still in the upcoming campaign for Obama's re-election bid; the strategy of peace talks with the Taliban will need a close look. The...
