  • Why the West is an Inviting Target for Jihadist Propaganda

    PARIS -- One of the most alarming things about Islamic State terrorists is how effective they've become at creating propaganda -- slickly produced videos depicting violent acts against their captives, paired with various denunciations of Western foreign policy and related demands. In some cases these videos feature recruits from Western nations attempting to reach out to vulnerable youth. And judging by the estimated hundreds (and counting) who have been lured from the comfort of democratic Western states into battlefields in the Middle East, the recruiting effort seems to be working. But why? We should be embarrassed that a bunch of...

    The military's overthrow of Mohammed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood's fall from power in Egypt have sent Islamist parties around the region scrambling to preserve gains made in the Middle East and North Africa as a result of the Arab Spring uprisings. The stunning reversal has instilled caution among some Islamists against pushing their agenda too hard, but it has also strengthened hard-liners long opposed to democracy....

    One of a series of lavish attempts to throw sand in the eyes of the West Even before the “Arab spring” revolts — indeed, ever since the 9/11 attacks on American soil by mostly Saudi terrorists — the Saudi royal family has assiduously waged a public-relations campaign to improve its image by sponsoring major cultural initiatives in the West. In 2012 alone, these included the opening of the King Abdullah interfaith-dialogue center in Vienna, an Islamic-art wing at the Louvre in Paris, and “Roads of Arabia,” an archaeological exhibition now on display in Washington, D.C., at the Smithsonian Institution. All...

    A capacity audience gathered to hear Prof. Taner Akçam speak about his most recent book, The Young Turks' Crime against Humanity: The Armenian Genocide and Ethnic Cleansing in the Ottoman Empire, at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard, the Arenian Mirror Spectator reports. Akçam is the only scholar of Turkish descent who chairs an Armenian studies department and one of only a handful of Armenian Genocide scholars researching in the Turkish archives. He has mined the archives extensively, with his latest book significantly contributing to the field. "At the risk of sounding immodest, this is a first...

    A law firm that defends and promotes Christian heritage and moral values says it has obtained a document that vindicates an 18-year veteran Army officer who is being disciplined for telling the truth about Islam. The Thomas More Law Center says it has obtained more evidence to prove its contention that the Pentagon is taking its marching orders from Islamic groups in taking extreme disciplinary action against Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley, a 1994 graduate of the United States Military Academy. The highly decorated armor officer was excoriated and relieved of a teaching assignment because he discussed negative aspects of Islam...

    The problem with Islam is that Muslims riot and burn and kill those who repeat what is already in their scriptures. The truth regarding that low-budget video, however, is that all the stories in it were taken from the Islamic books on Mohammed's life, "Sirat Rasul Allah" ["The Life of the Messenger of Allah"], the earliest biography of Muhammad, as well as from quotes in the "Hadiths," acts or sayings ascribed to Muhammad. The stories were not the invention of the producer of the film; they were tasteless and unholy, but they are all found in Muslim scriptures. The problem...

    Escalating tension between Syria and Turkey has exposed the blatant hypocrisy of Turkey's Islamist Prime Minister Recep Tayyip ErdoÄŸan when it comes to terrorism and a country's right to self-defense. Human rights lawyer Arsen Ostrovsky makes that clear in a column published Friday at the Algemeiner website. Turkey has intercepted arms shipments headed for Damascus and even fired into Syrian territory last week after a mortar landed on Turkish soil killing five civilians. No one should doubt Turkey's resolve to protect its people, ErdoÄŸan said. "This situation has reached a stage that poses serious threats and risks to our national...

    Islamists Select a New Target, and a "See No Evil" House Bill May Facilitate the Effort. Turkey's government, under Islamist leadership, has developed a remarkable but obscure tactic to make inroads into the United States. Recently, Native American Congressman Tom Cole (R-OK, member of the Chickasaw Nation) introduced H.R. 2362, the Indian Trade and Investment Demonstration Project. The bill singles out Turkish-owned companies for exclusive investment preferences and special rights in Native American tribal area projects. Congressman Cole freely admitted the following on the House floor: There's no question that I was approached by the Turkish American Coalition [properly the...

    Hussein Fahs, Hezbollah’s CFO and head of the organization’s communications network, has apparently fled to Israel along with 5 million dollars in Iranian money. According to official Hezbollah sources, Fahs took with him maps, classified documents and a large sum of money. According to the report, seven women and one man are charged in absentia with collaborating with Israel, entering Israel illegally and obtaining Israeli citizenship.

    French politicians such as President François Hollande hope that Qatari funds will help fight poverty in disadvantaged Muslim neighborhoods, They assume that poverty is the cause of France's social problems. They should, however, know better. The problems in the suburbs of Seine-Saint-Denis and elsewhere are not caused by poverty, but by the unwillingness of many Muslims to integrate into French society. Qatar announced last February, when Nicolas Sarkozy was still the President of France, that it was willing to invest €50 million ($65 million) in the French banlieues, the suburbs which are home to the vast majority of the six...

    A ruling handed down on September 13th by the D.C. District Federal Court has finally made clear what many have known for years–that the Obama Administration’s Iran policy was initiated and advanced by a group with illicit, hidden ties to the Iranian Regime and financed by the U.S./Israel- hating George Soros. In 2009, Barack Obama turned over virtually all responsibility and authority for foreign policy negotiations with Iran to Trita Parsi and his National Iranian American Council (NIAC). Founded by Parsi in 2003, the Washington-based NIAC is a powerful lobbying group that is “…widely considered the de facto lobby for...

    Turkey has agreed a $1 billion loan for Egypt during President Mohamed Morsi's visit to the country, the state-run MENA news agency reported on Sunday. The borrowing is the first tranche of a total reported $2 billion Turkish aid package for Cairo. Morsi on Sunday attended the annual conference of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) in the Turkish capital of Ankara. On his first visit to Turkey as Egyptian president, Morsi spoke from the stage and urged his audince to support "the nations that are aspiring to freedom and independence." Addressing the Turkish nation specifically, Morsi added: "The...

    The Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohammed Morsi, the recently elected president of Egypt, will be a featured participant at the eighth annual meeting of Bill Clinton’s Clinton Global Initiative in New York next week. Morsi is a prominent figure in the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, the most important of the world’s Islamist organizations and ideological progenitor of al Qaeda and nearly every jihadist terrorist group in the world. Its slogan reads, “Allah is our objective; the Quran is our law, the Prophet is our leader; Jihad is our way; and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations.” Clinton’s...

    Mosques can be monitored in Saudi Arabia, but there cannot be any monitoring of mosques in the U.S. Oh, no. That would be "Islamophobic." Maybe the Obama Administration could bring in some Saudi mosque inspectors to assure them that everything is on the up-and-up in mosques stateside. "Misuse of mosque for manufacturing explosives condemned," from Arab News, August 28 (thanks to Twostellas): JEDDAH: A number of religious scholars and academics have stressed the need for the Ministry of Islamic Affairs, Endowment, Call and Guidance to beef up monitoring of places of worship. It followed the recent report of a Riyadh...

    With the trial of Major Nidal Hasan, the Ft. Hood killer, on indefinite hold because of Hasan’s beard, military attorneys told a U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forcess that a military judge has the right to order a defendant’s beard forcibly shaved. The military judge presiding over Hasan’s trial has refused to go forward with Hasan in the courtroom with a beard. The case as to whether or not Hasan can be forcibly shaved is now being heard in the appeals court. Hasan claims he grew his beard for religious reasons, however, beards are against army regulations.

    The conservative movement appears to be at a crossroads in its approach to the threat of Islamic supremacism—not only abroad but at home. Does the emergence of the Muslim Brotherhood as the dominant force of the "Arab Spring" bode ill for America? Or is the Brotherhood merely another "political actor" as the Obama administration would have us believe? Is Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton's Deputy Chief of Staff, a potential security risk worth investigating, as Representative Michele Bachmann and four conservative congressmen have suggested? Or is the mere raising of this question a witch-hunt, as Senator John McCain and Speaker John...

    I appreciate the chance to engage in a debate with Jonathan Kay about a threat I perceive and he discounts: efforts by avowed enemies of freedom to impose their preferred alternative – a totalitarian, supremacist Islamic doctrine they call shariah – on the rest of us. Related Jonathan Kay: Canada is safe from Sharia In his essay, Jonathan actually concedes points central to my argument including: an ideology bent on global domination is at work at the moment; the Muslim Brotherhood is a driving force behind that agenda; Islamists have made inroads in Europe; and a top Muslim Brotherhood operative,...

    The kingdom of saudi arabia has attempted to block a Vatican bid to create new web addresses ending in .catholic, arguing that it “cannot demonstrate that it possesses a monopoly over the term ‘Catholic’”. The objection is one of more than 160 sent by the Saudis to ICANN, the body in charge of web addresses, over its plan to allow hundreds of new “top-level domains” to supplement .com, .co.uk and other existing suffixes. “Many other Christians use the term 'Catholic' to refer more broadly to the whole Christian Church regardless of denominational affiliation,” the Saudi Communication and Information Technology Commission...

    A horrific amateur video appeared on YouTube, apparently showing an atrocity against public service workers in Syria. The footage displays a crowd of people callously throwing the bodies of slain postal workers from a post office rooftop. ­The video, the source of which could not be independently verified, shows several dozen people having surrounded the staircase of the building, some of them chanting “Allahu Akbar!” They watch corpses being thrown out and rolled down the steps. Also, several people have got to the roof and are throwing down the apparently dead bodies of post servants. As they hit the ground,...
