    TURKISH warplanes have shot down a Russian jet which they claim flew into the country's airspace. The aircraft was shot down after it was warned 10 times in five minutes to leave Turkish airspace, a Turkish military official has said. It was just over the Syrian border in Turkey when it was downed by F16 Fighting Falcon jets belonging to Turkey, the official added. But Russian President Vladimir Putin said the plane was 4km into Syria and had not violated Turkey's airspace as it flew at an altitude of 6,000 metres - and claimed it was shot down from the...

    Pushing back against efforts to bar Syrian refugees from resettling in the U.S., President Barack Obama vowed Saturday that his country will be a welcoming place for millions fleeing violence around the world "as long as I'm president. Brushing off refugee worries at home, Obama crouched alongside migrant children on Saturday and declared they are the opposite of terrorists wreaking havoc from Paris to Mali. Working to put a human face on the refugee crisis, he said, "They're just like our kids." The refugees Obama encountered at a school for poor children in Malaysia were not from Syria, and unlike...

But they are counting on the American people being stupid when it comes to world affairs. And there's very little to suggest they won't be successful in that endeavor. Be it the president saying ISIS is "contained" hours before the group unleashed evil on the streets of Paris, or the secretary of state saying the Paris attacks were crazy, unlike the attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo, where there was "legitimacy" and a "rationale" to them, nothing they say can...

    The time has come to question if Islam is protected under our First Amendment rights to freedom of religion. Yes, everyone in America has the right to freedom of religion, but Islam is not a religion. Religious faith is only a part of Islam. The rest is a socially engineered society with its own laws and customs that seriously conflict with American law. Is Great Britain a religion because they have the Church of England? Of course not. Britain has an established charter, civil and criminal laws, and a society that respects those laws. Islam has the Qur'an that provides...

"We, including the President, have said from beginning the fight against ISIL would be long and have both good and...

    The United States Army has created a new patch for soldiers who are fighting ISIS in Iraq. USA Today reports that the Army's patch features crossed scimitars, a palm wreath and stars. The scimitars, short swords with curved blades, are meant to symbolize the twin goals of the U.S.-led coalition: to defeat the Islamic State, also referred to as ISIL, and to restore stability in the region, according to Army documents. The palm wreath is symbol of honor. While the stars and the buff-and-blue colors on the patch indicate the three-star command and the land, air and sea forces involved...

Still others argue it would replace the U.S. Constitution. But organizers say the panel of arbitrators issues nonbinding decisions on matters such as business disputes and religious divorces. They note its parallels with Jewish rabbinical courts and Catholic tribunals. The very word Shariah invokes backlash from those who dont understand it and use...

    The White House Summit on Combating Violent Extremism ended last week with much politically correct discussion, but no definite plan on how to combat violent extremism, and certainly no willingness to define it. We use common definitions so family members, colleagues, and other nations understand whatever it is we wish to communicate in whatever form we believe is best, whether in words, music, signs, or symbols. Common and easily understood definitions are essential when conveying simple or complex concepts. Even though I spent my formative years in rural Illinois, I do believe I understand the difference between violent extremism and...

    Our country is in danger. Our President is asleep at his Post. Our Military is restrained. What can we do? I am being encouraged to ask the FReeper Community to direct their Church's Ministorial Staff to direct the total Congregation to solicit our Federal Government to act quickly and decisively against the ISIS Islamic Terrorists. I believe we need to act as the Christian Crusaders did against Islamic Terrorists hundreds of years ago. The ISIS Islamic Terrorists must be totally eliminated for the good of Christianity and the World.

    Making an example of the so-called 'Islamic State' by promptly killing as many as we can find (at least in Iraq and Syria) would stop the movement in it's bloody tracks -while serving as an example to would-be jihadis and their backers worldwide, for years to come. And almost everybody else on Earth would be far better off without them. Pacifism and half-measures have not gotten the job done, nor has hiding from the threat of radical Islam in general, and ISIS in particular- they just keep getting closer, and closer,and closer...When I see these pictures of them marching...

    Soon after Muslim gunmen killed 12 people at Charlie Hebdo offices..., the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC)the... second largest inter-governmental organization after the United Nationsis again renewing calls for the United Nations to criminalize blasphemy against Islam, or what it more ecumenically calls, the defamation of religions. Yet the OIC seems to miss one grand irony: if international laws would ban cartoons, books, and films on the basis that they defame Islam, they would also, by logical extension, have to ban the entire religion of Islam itselfthe only religion whose core texts actively and unequivocally defame other religions, including by...

    When Islamic State group militants invaded the Central Library of Mosul earlier this month, they were on a mission to destroy a familiar enemy: other people's ideas. Residents say the extremists smashed the locks that had protected the biggest repository of learning in the northern Iraq town, and loaded around 2,000 books including children's stories, poetry, philosophy and tomes on sports, health, culture and science into six pickup trucks. They left only Islamic texts. The rest? "These books promote infidelity and call for disobeying Allah. So they will be burned," a bearded militant in traditional Afghani two-piece clothing...
