    An Iraqi Catholic group called the Chaldean League has urged Christians to stay put in their native land, saying “ISIS terrorism will soon go away,” local media reported on Tuesday. “Christians in Iraq must stay in their land and to stop migrating,” Safa Sabah Hindi, the head of Chaldean League, said in a statement reported by Iraq-based Al-Sumaria News website. The Chaldean League, headquartered in Iraq, was formed last year to unite Iraqi Catholics in the country and abroad. He added: “Christians are one of the main edifice for building Iraq and one of its cultural civilizational pillars, who add...

    COACHELLA, California — Holy prayers at a mosque here on Friday were canceled with families gawking behind fire lines after discovering the front of their holy house had become one big fireball. Late Friday night, authorities announced that they believe the fire was deliberately set, and the local branch of the FBI is investigating as a possible hate crime. In addition, a person of interest has been detained, but not identified. Members of the congregation are blaming GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump for setting the ugly tone that charred their house of worship. The mosque began to burn at around...

    Turkey’s President has defended the controversial construction of a grandiose new presidential palace, saying his old office was infested with cockroaches. Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been accused of squandering state resources when he was Prime Minister by building the 1,150-room palace, which critics say was illegally built on protected land. In the run-up to Sunday’s parliamentary elections, opposition parties have criticised the expenditure.

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday stepped up his attacks on foreign media a day ahead of legislative elections, telling the Guardian to “know your limits” and lamenting that “Jewish capital” was behind the New York Times. Erdogan has during the campaign leading up to Sunday’s polls repeatedly criticised foreign media, amid growing concerns over an erosion of freedom of expression in Turkey under his rule. In one of its final pre-election rallies in the eastern province of Ardahan, Erdogan took offence at an article in the Guardian critical of his rule, including an editorial titled “Growing autocracy threatens...

We all know that President Obama (foolishly) said a chemical weapons attack by Assad's forces would be a "red line" that if crossed, would trigger a military response -- and it appears clear that the Syrians conducted a chemical weapons attack in the suburbs of Damascus that killed as many as 1,300 people.

Muslims were also present, voicing their opposition against the Brotherhood. "I'm a Muslim," demonstrator Mina Khalifa said. "It's not a Christian thing. It's an Egyptian thing."...

    The trial for the suspected Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Hasan is underway. Since he is representing himself, he could end up cross examining the victims of his own attack. Witnesses say Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, opened fire at Fort Hood nearly four years ago, killing 13 people and wounding more than 30 others. Hasan isn't denying the allegations. In a brief opening statement Monday, he said "the evidence will clearly show that I am the shooter." Hasan called himself a "mujahideen" -- a Muslim holy warrior. "He further stated he realized during the war that he eventually found himself...

    The Arab League summit that began Thursday in Baghdad has illuminated the political and religious divisions splitting with Arab world, while powerful eastern non-Arab neighbor Iran looks on and tries to pull Iraq's strings. One of those fractures is between Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, branded a would-be dictator by domestic rivals, who is sitting down with the new leaders of countries that have overthrown tyrants in the often-bloody Arab Spring revolutions. The meeting of Arab leaders in the cavernous Republican Palace built by Saddam Hussein is the first such gathering since those political convulsions began in Tunisia in January...

    It’s the latest Leftist talking point: Rick Santorum is a bit dangerous, a bit unhinged, deeply religious and dangerously fanatical, not to be trusted with the governance of our pluralistic republic, and certainly not with guardianship of the First Amendment protection of the freedom of religion. The prominent Leftist Muslim writer Reza Aslan has recently become a foremost exponent of these claims, although they did not by any means originate with him. Leftist journalists and Islamic supremacist spokesmen always march in lockstep, using the same talking points, as I’ve pointed out previously in connection with Islamic supremacist boy Reza Aslan’s...

His supporters protested the detention order, calling Salah a “man of peace” although he is blacklisted from Britain. His attorneys appealed the order and told judges that he is not a security risk.

Photo by: Pete Souza Government data released Friday showed employers in May hired the fewest number of workers in eight months and U.S. unemployment rose to 9.1 percent, up from 9.0 percent in April. That bump is a political challenge for the president, whose re-election in 2012 may depend on his ability to convince voters that his economic policies have been successful. Part of his pitch will...

    The Barack Obama administration has decided to lift a ban preventing Muslim Scholar Professor Tariq Ramadan from entering the United States. Ramadan, an Egyptian currently living in Switzerland, is a leading member of Europe’s Muslim Brotherhood branch and the grandson of the movement’s founder Hassan al-Banna. The Muslim Brotherhood is the parent organization for Hamas and some of the groups that recently merged into al-Qaeda, including Ayman al Zawahiri’s Egyptian Islamic Jihad. Ramadan was invited to teach at the University of Notre Dame in 2004 but the George W. Bush administration revoked his visa, citing a statute that applies to...

    NAJAF, Iraq – Anti-American cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, who led several Shiite uprisings against American forces in Iraq before going into exile in neighboring Iran almost four years ago, returned to Iraq Wednesday. Al-Sadr's return caps another dramatic rise to prominence for him and his followers after being routed by Iraqi and U.S. forces and appearing to fade from power just a few years ago. The strong showing by his bloc in last year's parliamentary elections and his key support for Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki paved the way for Wednesday's return.

The flotilla violence caught Netanyahu in the midst of a diplomatic trip to North America.

    The trouble with U.S. President Barack Obama's boffo speech in Cairo to the Muslim world was not what he said -- but that he said it. To explain: The content was generally fair, rational, evenhanded and fitting for a moderator, arbitrator or neutral adjudicator. But that's not what Obama is. He is, or should be, the embodiment of his country and its interests. When he appoints himself the go-between who sees all sides and takes no sides -- who chastises all conflicting parties equally and impartially -- he does a disservice to himself, his country and to truth. His speech...

A copy of the speech was also translated and published by the Middle East Media Research Institute, a Middle Eastern press monitoring service. Jannati is the head of...

    Oh Allah, You annihilated the people Thamoud at the hand of a tyrant, You annihilated the people of 'Aad with a fierce, icy gale, and You destroyed the Pharaoh and his soldiers – oh Allah, take this oppressive, tyrannical band of people.

You won't see or hear any of this in the Mainstream Media. The Horrible hatred that comes out of Hamas. These words come from...

    It is axiomatic that a knowledge of history is a prerequisite for understanding the present. But the question is: How much weight should we give to controversial figures from the past when deciding how to think about current conflicts? According to the authors of a new book about the grand mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini (1893-1974), a man who played a key role in fomenting and exacerbating the struggle between Jews and Arabs during much of the 20th century, the answer is quite a lot. The book, Icon of Evil: Hitler’s Mufti and the Rise of Radical Islam, by...
  • Zakaria: Obama would be good for U.S. image abroad

    Zakaria: There's no question that Sen. Obama winning would have an impact on America's image for the better. It would boost America's image, it would give people a sense of the promise of America, the "only in America" type of story. The question is, really: Is this going to be more than a momentary boost? And my suspicion is that it will not last unless there are policies that pursue a very different course than we've been pursuing.

    War On Terror: Caving to Muslim pressure groups, the Bush administration has banned the term "jihadist" to define the enemy. Islamic terrorists will now be known as "violent extremists." Our war on radical Islam has been hamstrung by political correctness from the start. First, we couldn't call the campaign to strike back at al-Qaida a "crusade" because Muslims found it historically offensive. Then we couldn't define the enemy as "Islamic terrorists" because it insulted Islam — even though it accurately described the Muslims committing murder and mayhem in the name of Islam. To appease critics, we narrowed the terminology, confining...

    The War on Terror is going to continue to be about hunting the Islamofascist terrorists down in whatever country they are holed up in. That is just the reality of facing an enemy who doesn’t belong to a distinct geographical location. But a necessary element for victory is one that is found in the most unlikely of places: right here at home. On the political left. Ouch.
