    Christian watchdog groups have voiced concern over last week’s election of former cricket star and Islamist Imran Khan as Pakistani Premier, noting Khan’s public support for the nation’s harsh blasphemy laws. Shortly after the election, Khan—who attributed his victory to the will of Allah—told the nation that his preferred form of government is “the Islamic State as established by the Prophet Mohammad in Medina.” “Today in front of you, in front of the people of Pakistan, I pledge I will run Pakistan in such a way as it has never before been run,”

    A public event with the eminent scientist and rationalist Richard Dawkins was cancelled late last year by a Berkeley radio station. A spokesman for the station said that Dawkins had “said things that I know have hurt people,” a misleading allusion to the atheist Dawkins’s forthright criticism of Islam which, along with all religions, he regards as irrational. The station’s general manager declared: “We believe that it is our free speech right not to participate with anyone who uses hateful or hurtful language against a community that is already under attack.”This is only one of the more recent in...

    "These epithets of 'moderate Islam' are very ugly, it is disrespectful and an insult to our religion. There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that's it." — Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. In keeping with Erdoğan's assertions, the Turkish government-funded Directorate of Religious Affairs (Diyanet) published in July a detailed 140-page report, which stated that Islam is "superior" to Judaism and Christianity, and that "interfaith dialogue is unacceptable." "The word kafir is the worst word in the human language. It is far worse than the n-word, because the n-word is a personal opinion, whereas, kafir...

    Donald Trump’s tweets Wednesday morning promoting rabid anti-Muslim videos might seem distant from the bullying of Muslim kids in Bay Area schools over the past year — and now, in San Jose, the bullying of a Muslim teacher by schoolkids. But these incidents are linked to Trump’s behavior as indelibly as smoke to fire. Any president of the United States sets a tone and an example for the nation — and this anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant president behaves like a bully. Instances of kids bullying and harassing Muslim classmates over the past year have increased throughout the Bay Area. And to their...

    Every time jihadi terrorists murder innocent people, political commentators and analysts rightfully start trying to find answers to questions such as: “What made the terrorists do that?” “How were they radicalized?” “Where were they brainwashed?” A look at Turkey -- whose constitution states it is a secular republic, but whose educational system functions otherwise -- may yield some eye-opening answers.

    Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s vow to turn Saudi Arabia into a moderate Islamic country may have been welcomed by the West, but it did not go down well in Turkey — especially among Islamists — and fueled long-standing suspicions about "imperial US designs against the Islamic world."Ever since former US Secretary of State Colin Powell declared Turkey to be a “moderate Islamic republic” in 2004, the concept of moderate Islam has raised the hackles of Turkish secularists and Islamists alike. Still smarting over 9/11, Washington was searching at the time for a model against radical Islam that reflected...

    For me, the most interesting parts of a Trump speech are his diversions from the script. Sometimes, if the speechwriter's got a line that tickles his fancy, he'll just riff off it for a bit. Sometimes he diverges from the prepared remarks in striking ways. This weekend in Saudi Arabia, addressing the big Islamo-schmoozefest, he did both. The President was supposed to say: That means honestly confronting the crisis of Islamist extremism and the Islamist terror groups it inspires. Instead he said: That means honestly confronting the crisis of Islamic extremism and the Islamists and the Islamic terror - of...

    Voters went to the polls April 16 to vote on a new draft constitution that would officially increase the powers of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.The opponents of the bill including the Republican People’s Party (CHP), the main opposition party in Turkey’s parliament, have been trying to fight it in an environment where deviation from the point of view of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) is often labeled by the government and its media as “support of terrorism” or “treason.”However, the CHP party is not and has never been a beacon of democracy either.

    The Next Obama: Abdul EL-Sayed Is Being Groomed By George Soros Do you remember the keynote speaker at the DNC in 2004? If you don’t, let me tell you about him. He came onto the stage after years of being groomed by George Soros. He was picked by the Left to be their “champion” of Hope and Change. I guess that gave it away. The keynote speaker at the DNC that year was Barack Hussein Obama. Even my sons, who had never been interested in politics, were mesmerized by this man. His speech launched him as the darling of the...

Abdulgadir Masharipov initially planned to attack the area around Taksim Square but switched to the upscale Reina nightclub due to the heightened security measures around the square, Hurriyet said, without saying how it had obtained the document. "I did not take part in any acts before the Reina event. I thought of carrying out an act against...

    It has become a staple of diplomatic rhetoric that, whatever problems the United States has with the current government in Turkey, diplomats must ameliorate President Recep Tayyip Erdogan because Turkey is too important to NATO and also a staging ground in any operations against the Islamic State.A Turkish flag (R) flies among others flags of NATO members during the North Atlantic Council (NAC) at the Alliance headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, July 28, 2015.
