    The American people have learned that once again, they were not told the truth. We were told that by the fall of 2012, Al Qaeda was purportedly on the run, finished off by a diplomacy that exchanged bullets for talking points, kinetic warfare for bridge-building conciliation. None of it was true. These talking points masked the reality that the vacuum created by America’s withdrawal was quickly being filled by resurgent Islamists. Now, it seems, modernity is on the run, being terrorized by adherents to a violent ideology buried in the sands of centuries past. The Islamic State (ISIS) is thriving...

    A former CIA officer said Thursday he has no doubt Islamic State (ISIS) sleeper cells are already planted on U.S. soil. ... former CIA officer Bob Baer told the network ISIS is already on this side of the Atlantic. "I have been told with no uncertainty there are ISIS sleeper cells in this country," he said. ... Islamic State fighters suggest their leader, Iraqi Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is planning something for the West – and that attacks could take place through sleeper cells in both Europe and the United States. “The West are idiots and fools," one fighter taunted, according...

    After almost six years of pretending, Barack Hussein Obama has revealed himself to be our Golfer-In-Chief. Presidents, real presidents, are supposed to be the people who make tough decisions sometimes with very little notice. They have to be ready with ideas to safeguard Americans abroad and secure domestic tranquility at home. By these standards Barack Hussein Obama has been a miserable failure. He has continued to do what is wrong so often that only those who will directly benefit by the death march he is putting America through are left to defend him. In our streets his voters who are...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Is the same radical group that executed a U.S. journalist this week making threats in Chicago? An ominous post on Twitter, purportedly from somebody connected with Islamic State, shows a photo of the Old Republic Building, 307 N. Michigan Ave. and the White House. The text reads: #AmessagefromISIStoUS We are in your state We are in your cities We are in your streets You are our goals anywhere. The message seems to imply that Islamic State operatives are in Chicago and other U.S. cities.

    In another heated exchange between State Department spokesman Marie Harf and AP reporter Matt Lee, the issue of whether any governments are funding ISIS / ISIL is proving to be a hot button issue. In this particular exchange, Qatar is the focus but other countries – specifically Turkey – should start getting spotlighted soon.

    The beheading of any American should send every American into orbit from outrage. That includes the beheading of James Foley. What must be made known, however, is that evidence suggests Foley was sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood’s cause and may have been a liberal. If that’s true, why would ISIS behead him? The answer is strangely simple. ISIS beheads liberals too, in much the same way that the Tsarnaev brothers set off pressure cooker bombs in a predominantly liberal city – Boston. Foley Betrayed by those he supported. A look at Foley’s twitter feed from 2012 indicates he was a...

The video shows truckloads of hostages being carted away to their death. The ISIS claims these hostages are Iraq’s Army POWs, driven away in truck loads and then shot them all dead. The video caption stated that there were 1,500 individuals. The video shows their end being shot at point blank in several horrific mass slaughters reminiscent to what we see during Nazi Germany.

    Before Islamic extremists brutally beheaded an American journalist on camera, they demanded $132 million in ransom from his family and his employer. Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists began sending messages to James Foley's family and the GlobalPost last fall, Philip Balboni, the news agency's head, told CNN. At first the messages made political and financial demands. "The captors never messaged a lot. There was a very limited number with a very specific purpose," he said. Then, last week, the fighters sent an email saying Foley would be killed. "The message was vitriolic and filled with rage against the United States. It...

    CNN ^ | August 21, 2014 | By Erin Marie Saltman
    The answer to why ISIS makes and popularizes such videos is simple: They represent a critical threat to the West on two levels. On the one hand, the video directly warns the West of repercussions if its intervention continues. On the other, it represents a more subtle threat reminding Europe and the United States that their own citizens are vulnerable to being radicalized, that ISIS supporters are present all over the world. So, creating an elaborate display of beheading an American represents a distinct change in messaging, turning the threat towards the West. Indeed, the apparently British militant conducting the...

    There is no question that Turkey, because of its size and geo-strategic location maintains a pivotal role in NATO. Its armed forces are NATO’s second largest and its troops had acquitted themselves well during the Korean War. Turkey had also played a constructive role in bridging relations between Israel and the Muslim world acting as an effective interlocutor. But with the ascent of the Islamist Justice and Development party in 2002 and the rise of Recep Tayyip Erdogan as party boss, things have taken a stark turn for the worse. Under the stewardship of an increasingly unbalanced Erdogan, Turkey has...

While his anger was palpable, Obama’s resolve to rain death on the savages of ISIS was far from clear. Worse, he signaled disdain for the gravity of the moment by going from the presidential podium straight to a vacation round of golf.

Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said the scale of the slaughter wrought by the extremists in overrunning large swathes of Iraq and Syria and the level of violence being used was appalling. "It is shocking.

    Americans were made acutely aware of the threat posed by Western jihadist fighters joining the ranks of ISIS in Syria and Iraq when a man with a London accent beheaded James Wright Foley as part of a taped ultimatum to President Barack Obama. Inexplicably, President Barack Obama chose not to even abstractly address the nature of that threat, even though he plans to personally chair a meeting of the United Nations Security Council on precisely this subject next month. A July intelligence estimate suggested that up to 3,000 ISIS militants were of European origin and 1,500 of those are young...

    The recent declaration of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as the new Islamic caliph by jihadi militant group ISIS was greeted by foreign observers with a mixture of bewilderment, mirth, fear and panic. Whatever the response, there’s no doubt that the blockbuster announcement brought more attention to the issue of the caliphate, seen by many as the ultimate symbol of Muslim political unity, than it has received in years. Reza Pankhurst’s “The Inevitable Caliphate?” is a timely consideration of how the idea has animated and inspired Muslim intellectuals and activists over the past century, and how it is used by various groups...

Still, he wanted to believe the threat was empty, and learned it wasn't Tuesday when the video of Foley's killing was released on YouTube.</p>

The U.S.-allied kingdom has grown increasingly alarmed since militants from an offshoot of al Qaeda captured large areas of neighboring Iraq and Syria and declared an Islamic caliphate. At his Friday sermon in Mecca, the imam and preacher of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Sheikh Abdul-Rahman al-Sudais, decried "mass massacres against humanity" in Gaza, Syria and Iraq.

The black flag that was hanging in New Jersey is an indisputable identifier of jihadist terrorist groups including al-Qaeda. It is one of several variations of the ‘Black Flags of Jihad’.

    Confusion about what constitutes halal meat sparked a blunder at a community barbecue in Fairview on Saturday. After failing to provide halal meat, event organizers tried to remedy the oversight by having a local politician bless regular hotdogs. Patricia Arab, Liberal MLA for Fairview-Clayton Park, said a prayer over the hotdogs, mistakenly thinking this would make the meat halal. Meat that is halal, which means “permissible” in Arabic, is prepared following precise instructions detailed in the Qur’an. A halal animal must be healthy and fed a natural diet that does not contain animal byproducts. When it’s slaughtered, it is blessed...

Speaking as the first Caliph, or commander of the Islamic faithful since the dissolution of the Ottoman empire, he called on Muslims to rally to his pan-Islamic state. 'Those who can...

    Pundits and news agencies have questioned the validity of reports that the Islamic State is beheading children in its conquest of Syria and Iraq. But there is one fact that can't be contested: The Sunni-dominated al-Qaida splinter group is on a war rampage using some of the most heinous and barbaric means to exterminate anyone who opposes it, particularly Christians. In 2011, President Barack Obama declared, "The long war in Iraq will come to an end by the end of this year." The only thing he didn't count on was that the terrorist enemies of the U.S. decided not to...

    ISIS militants and their supporters are using social media to encourage protesters in Ferguson to embrace radical Islam and fight against the U.S. government. Jihadists in Syria and Iraq and their sympathisers in the West have taken to Twitter to send messages of support to hundreds of demonstrators taking part in a ninth night of angry protests in the U.S. city following the shooting by police of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown. The militants' tweets denounce local officers for the way they have attempted to quell the violence, make reference to historic acts of police brutality, and even use the...

    As American forces continue to mount airstrikes on Islamic State positions around the key Mosul dam in support of Kurdish forces, it appears that Iran is prepared to increase its military support for Iraq’s Shia in the south and east. An unconfirmed report in Iraqi News indicates that Iranian Revolutionary Guards forces are preparing to insert heavy armor into Iraq. According to an informed source, tanks and armored vehicles belonging to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards are mobilizing to enter the Khanaqin district with the aim of the concentration in areas with Shiite majority north of the capital Baghdad and hit...
  • Choosing The Right Side In Conflict: Israel

    Poletical ^ | August 16th, 2014 | R. Rados
    When choosing a side in conflict, it should be our moral dispositions that trump political correctness and ideology. Morality offers a simple solution to an array of complex problems. Secondly, knowledge and facts are powerful tools for determining which side is worthy of our support. Choosing to support a side that promotes everything that goes against our own common morality makes the least amount of sense. Murder, tyranny, genocide, racism and indiscriminate hatred (or the advocacy of those things) go against our common morality. To most of us, it's incomprehensible to accept any of those things as conducive to the...

    The threats posed by the Islamic State are palpable and growing. While the Obama Nation and much of the West think short term and lead from behind, our enemies think long term and lead from the front.The Long War Journal is run by Paul Hanusz and Bill Roggio. Thomas Joscelyn is the senior editor. The following video was posted at You Tube on August 18th and is of a recent lecture by Mr. Joscelyn presented at the Endowment for Middle East Truth. Mr. Joscelyn compares the rise of initially unexceptional ideologues such as Hitler, Mao and Stalin to the rise of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi...

    For now Muslim settlers are flying to Iraq or Syria from European countries like to Norway to join ISIS. Eventually they won’t have to fly anywhere.The struggle for the Islamic State will be right in their own backyards. A Muslim terrorist group, Ansar al-Sunna, is threatening that if a section of the nation’s capitol isn’t transformed into a sharia-complaint Muslim nation, an attack rivaling 9/11 will be launched upon the Scandinavian nation.“We do not want to be a part of Norwegian society. And we do not consider it necessary either to move away from Norway, because we were born and...

    hey are making their move. With the world busy trying to blame Israel for killing “innocent” Palestinians, Islamist thugs in Sweden are flexing their muscles and starting their attacks. They are threatening Sweden by saying, “Until the day we die, we will engage in war against Sweden and Europe.” Sweden and Europe invited these savages into their midst. They feed them, clothe them, give them free housing and offer them education, yet all the while allow these vicious sub-humans to openly hate their Swedish benefactors and rape their women without lifting a finger to defend themselves. Sweden is in desperate...
