    On the same day that there were marches against gun ownership and for more restrictions on the sale and usage of firearms, another type of march took place. This was a march against hateful ideologies that use terrorism and violence. It was attended by thousands and received almost no media coverage. The fact that it took place in the UK which has seen a spate of recent terror attacks is perhaps significant; as the saying goes: “where America starts, Britain leads.” The march was attended and organized by the FLA (Football Lads Association) and included people of all races, genders...

The Paris prosecutor’s office said counterterrorism investigators are taking over the probe into the ongoing hostage-taking incident Friday in the town of Trebes, but did not provide details. The assailant reportedly claimed connections to the Islamic State terror group. .....

    The Rt. Rev. Stephen Dami Mamza, the Catholic bishop of the Yola Diocese, stated: “It is on record that less than one week ago, no fewer than 20 innocent Christian farmers were killed in separate attacks in and around Tambo. Luru village in particular saw its worst days when herdsmen wielding sophisticated firearms stormed the area, killing 15 people. Within the period under review, not less than 10 churches were burnt down, and in some instances, worshippers were killed.” Mamza was apparently careful not to name the persecutors. After all, he doesn’t want to get called on the carpet by...

    Twenty-five years ago, the World Trade Center was attacked for the first time, shaking New York City and the nation. The 1993 World Trade Center bombing killed six people, including a pregnant woman, and injured more than a thousand others. On Feb. 26. 1993 at 12:18 pm, a 1,200-pound bomb exploded in an underground parking garage beneath the North Tower. The explosion caused power outages, stranding people in elevators and affecting communication systems. Smoke also began seeping through the towers, with some people on higher floors breaking windows to get air. With the elevators not working, people began running down...

    Marty Kiar and Barbara Sharief embrace groups linked to terror and bigotry. ... both Broward officials made videos of themselves voicing statements in support of Emerge USA. While the group has an innocuous – even Patriotic sounding – name, Emerge USA is actually a radical Muslim organization with links to terrorism and bigotry. ... Emerge USA is the brainchild of Khurrum Wahid, a South Florida attorney who has built his name on representing high profile terrorists. His clients include members of al-Qaeda and financiers of the Taliban. Wahid previously served as a legal advisor for the Council on American-Islamic Relations...

    “Even today, he appears to remain steadfast in that commitment and has shown no remorse. The defendant’s communications while incarcerated further demonstrate that, far from appreciating the depravity of his actions, he is proud of what he did, scornful of the American justice system, and as dedicated as ever to his terrorist ideology.” And while he is in prison, even if it is for the rest of his life, what will be done to disabuse him of that terrorist ideology? Nothing. In fact, U.S. prison officials will do everything they can to reinforce it. The U.S. prison system, like the...

    To understand the development of Islam in Western countries, I make a habit of visiting Muslim-majority areas such as Lakemba in Australia, Lodi in California, and Lunel in France. But London, England, is unique in the extent of its Islamic impress. Muslim-majority areas typically consist of poor, unattractive housing projects, remote from the city center, which long ago were abandoned by their original indigenous, working-class populations. They often feature men sitting around cafes and women cooped up at home. They suffer from a range of social pathologies, including unemployment, criminal gangs, and drug-trafficking. London too has such areas, and they...

In the statement, Abdiraham said he went to the Mall of America to answer the "call for jihad by the Chief of Believer, Abu-bakr Al-baghdadi, may Allah protect him, and by the Mujahiden of the...

    Are we diverse enough yet?This “Afghan asylum seeker” has acted in accord with Islamic teaching. The death penalty for apostasy is part of Islamic law. It’s based on the Qur’an: “They wish you would disbelieve as they disbelieved so you would be alike. So do not take from among them allies until they emigrate for the cause of Allah. But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them and take not from among them any ally or helper.” (Qur’an 4:89)A hadith depicts Muhammad saying: “Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him” (Bukhari 9.84.57)....

The apparent attack against Sweden’s police in the migrant ghetto neighbourhood of Rosengård in Sweden’s migrant crisis frontier city Malmö took place around nine o’clock Wednesday night. Two police cars were reported to be outright destroyed, and the explosion was so loud it was heard several neighbourhoods over. As Sweden’s border city with Europe, Malmö became the new home of hundreds of thousands of new arrivals as they flooded across the border from Denmark, having already...
