    "Border searches spur legal action by Muslims" from the IndyStar with thanks to Nicolei: American Muslim and civil liberties groups have filed a lawsuit in federal court claiming that Muslims who attend religious conferences outside the United States are subject to increased and unfair scrutiny upon their return to the country. The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, was brought by five American citizens who are Muslim. In January, they were detained, interrogated, photographed and fingerprinted when returning to the United States from an annual conference, called "Reviving the Islamic Spirit," in Toronto....

    KRASNODAR, Russia -- Thousands of Muslims from a small ethnic group known as the Meskhetian Turks are fleeing this Black Sea region for the United States. The exodus is caused by what human rights groups call a campaign of persecution sanctioned by local authorities and spearheaded by the Cossacks, a Russian militia that fought for the czars and is being revived. In the past year, just more than 5,000 Meskhetian Turks have resettled in the United States as refugees, and 4,400 have approval to immigrate, according to the U.S. Embassy in Moscow. Another 7,000 have filed applications that U.S. officials...

The 12th night of violence affected 300 towns in France and terrified the Old Continent. Radical Islamists opened fire against the police. 34 policemen were injured, the condition of two of them is critical. A man died after extremists beat him up. 1,400 cars were burnt down....

    Liberals in America are trying to take over the White House and dictate to a sitting president who should be on his personal staff. The media follows the president to foreign soil to hound him about "Plamegate," and all the while, parts of Europe are coming unglued. The liberal media in America barely mentions it. The media carefully sidesteps the fact that the riots in France are Islam-driven. The riots in Denmark are barely mentioned. The Muslim riots will spread and demands for Muslim autonomy will be made. This is just the beginning of the war for Europe. The second...

    A day after a special meeting between Australian Prime Minister John Howard and Muslim leaders, Muslims who do not respect secularism and law were told Wednesday, August 24, to leave the country. "If those are not your values, if you want a country which has Shari`ah law or a theocratic state, then Australia is not for you," Treasurer Peter Costello, seen as heir apparent to Howard, said on national television. He was quoted by Agence France-Presse (AFP) as saying that there are no two laws governing people in Australia. "I'd be saying to clerics who are teaching that there are...

    Jeddah: George Soros is warning all oil-producing countries about pegging their currencies and oil revenues to the dollar. "The US dollar is weak, and is expected to deteriorate more," said Soros. The famous currency trader and financier warned Russia and other oil-producing countries to sell their oil and price it in euros rather than US dollars, because the US dollar continues to fall against the euro. The US dollar poses a danger to oil-producing countries and their economies, he said. Many central banks intend to peg their currencies to the euro and increase their balances of European currency against the...

    BESLAN, RUSSIA – Among the wilted flowers brought to celebrate the first day of classes in the now blackened wreckage of Beslan's School No. 1 are the abundant signs of a sophisticated terror operation. That evidence is sparking a re-examination of the long-standing Chechen links to Al Qaeda. "They were so well trained - the highest level," says Oleg Tedeyev, deputy chief of a local police unit, who was involved in the battle Friday that freed more than 700 people, and officially left 338 dead, half of them children.

    An expelled military college student who converted to Islam is suspected of organizing several terrorist attacks claimed by Chechen rebels, including the Moscow metro blast in February that killed at least 42 people, Vremya Novostei reported Thursday. Pavel Kosolapov, an ethnic Russian from the Volgograd region, was expelled from a Rostov military college in the late 1990s for breaking rules and later recruited by Chechens living in Volgograd to fight against federal troops in Chechnya, the newspaper said, citing Federal Security Service investigators. In Chechnya he converted to Islam, received training from Arab instructors, and was picked by rebel warlord...

    Chechen rebel leaders fear for their lives. They are now more cautious, and they plan to flee abroad, sources in the regional command center for the counter-terrorist operation in the North Caucasus told RBC. This information was obtained from detained fighters. According to intelligence services, some warlords are waiting until federal troops complete the current stage of their counter-terrorist operation in the republic’s mountainous and forest area, and are preparing to flee outside Russia. Field commander Doka Umarov does not take part in rebel attacks now, for fear of being arrested. With a small group of militants, he migrates in...

    With perhaps one in five Americans already having seen it, "The Passion" continues to rack up attendance records. Would you like to hear an amazing statistic? In spite of dire warnings by some Jewish groups, no Jews wending their way homewards from the synagogue have been set upon by crucifix-wielding Christians intent on wreaking revenge for the death of Jesus. I am not being sarcastic. This truly is an amazing statistic. According to Boston police reports, the Oliver Stone-Quentin Tarantino 1994 "Natural Born Killers" inspired several imitation murders, including a firefighter killed by a man who claimed to be fascinated...

    The Islamic MindsetBy Hal Lindsey The Islamic Ruling Committee in Al Azhar, based in Cairo, ruled that Islamic states must acquire nuclear weapons for their defense, this according to the World Tribune.com. One of the members of Islam’s highest ruling Committee, Sheik Ala A-Shanawi, went on to say, “The founder of Islam, Mohammad, would have acquired a nuclear bomb to fight his enemies.” This statement sounds more ‘offensive’ than ‘defensive’, wouldn’t you say? Sheik A-Shanawi is no minor cleric in the Sunni Muslim’s highest authority for application of Islamic law. When he gives a ruling, he represents the official position...

    I recognized him by the back of his head as soon as I walked into the candlelit bar: Ameen, the Egyptian car-service driver. The cocksure young man who had argued politics with me from Brooklyn to Manhattan, gesturing with one hand and steering with the other. Who had told me back in July 2001 that something terrible was going to happen in New York, and that Osama bin Laden would be responsible. The guy I had handed over to the FBI. Whose life had been disrupted. Whose phone had been tapped. Whose family had been questioned. Because of me. On...
