    You say Islam is the religion of peace, but since when does terrorizing the innocent and beheading men, women and children constitute peace? WTF? But keep in mind, what did Saddam’s troops do when we came rolling into town? They surrendered, twice… So all your empty threats of coming to America and raising your flag over the White House amuse me more than any of you sick, sadistic bastards could ever imagine or comprehend. In 2012 there was about 21.2 million veterans in the United States. Do you understand what that means? Let me break it down for you. That...

    The Islamic State for Iraq and the Levant is mostly funded through criminal activity, such as the theft of a potential $425 million from a central bank in Mosul. But the group is also receiving private donations from wealthy Sunnis in American-allied Gulf nations such as Kuwait, Qatar, and, possibly, Saudi Arabia. ISIS is now thought to be the world's richest terrorist organization, with an estimated $2 billion in funds.This makes ISIS wealthier than several sovereign countries, including Nauru, Tonga, and the Marshall Islands."They probably have some wealthy donors in those countries, but they are seizing hundreds of millions in Iraq, and...

    NHS doctor from East London may hold the key to identifying the jihadi who beheaded James Foley. An NHS doctor from east London who was previously accused of kidnapping Western journalists in Syria may hold the key to identifying the jihadi who beheaded James Foley, intelligence sources have disclosed. Shajul Islam was arrested and charged with kidnapping a British journalist, John Cantlie, in 2012 but was released after his trial collapsed when Mr Cantlie was unable to give evidence. He had always protested his innocence, saying he went to Syria to use his medical skills to treat victims of the...

    'A senior British Muslim called on Thursday for action to tackle a jihadi sub-culture after an Islamic State video showed a suspected Briton beheading U.S. journalist James Foley held hostage in Syria. In Britain, the video caused particular shock as it featured the as yet unidentified man apparently speaking with a southeastern English accent, although the sizeable numbers of young British Muslims fighting with the militants in Iraq and Syria have created concern for some time. Sir Iqbal Sacranie, an adviser to the Muslim Council of Britain, said Britons from across the country's communities had to stop young men being...

    You can understand if President Obama would rather talk about the fight against Islamic State militants in Iraq, where he has scored some victories, than talk about the unholy mess in Ferguson, Mo. Surprisingly, though, ISIS militants are following developments in the St. Louis suburb, and some of them would rather focus on that. According to interviews and social media, members of the group and sympathizers with its jihadist ideology are closely tracking the events in the St. Louis suburb, where protesters and police have clashed. In it, they see opportunity. Partly, the focus is strategic: Officers in Ferguson have...

    Americans were made acutely aware of the threat posed by Western jihadist fighters joining the ranks of ISIS in Syria and Iraq when a man with a London accent beheaded James Wright Foley as part of a taped ultimatum to President Barack Obama. Inexplicably, President Barack Obama chose not to even abstractly address the nature of that threat, even though he plans to personally chair a meeting of the United Nations Security Council on precisely this subject next month. A July intelligence estimate suggested that up to 3,000 ISIS militants were of European origin and 1,500 of those are young...

The Islamic State is not simply an Iraqi problem or a Syrian problem.

Even worse, Jihadists from Boko Haram in Nigeria, Abu Sayyef in the Philippines, Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb in Northwest Africa and...

    The Islamic Jihad Conquest Formula By Matthew Bracken August, 2014 Mohammed’s unchanging formula for conquest is time-proven; variations were also used in history by the invading Mongol hordes among others. Emissaries ride forward of their advancing armies, offering to spare the lives of the targeted population in return for their unconditional surrender and explicit submission to their new rulers. In the Islamic context this submission is exemplified by the fresh converts repeating the Shahada prayer before Muslim witnesses. There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is his messenger. The Shahada prayer is the first of the Five Pillars of...

In a statement, the group’s so-called “military wing” said that it had resumed the rocket fire on Israel because the Israeli Air Force had launched an airstrike on a home in Gaza. The group warned that “the price will be a heavy one”. Senior Hamas official Ezzat al-Rishq warned, according to AFP, "Israel will not enjoy security so long as the Palestinian people do not, and it started it."...

The so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil), the region's most powerful Sunni jihadist group, has driven thousands of members of the Yazidi minority from their homes and is besieging the refugees on an exposed mountain. Last week, the United States launched an air campaign to break the siege of Mount Sinjar, bring humanitarian relief to the Yazidis and support Kurdish troops protecting their capital Arbil.

The outcry that followed did not look as if it would make her take back the words. However, she later deleted the tweet saying: 'Realise the political sensitivity in relation to my work.

Or at least one hopes that he will be accorded the full honors of a soldier killed in combat. With the Obama administration and its compliant Pentagon brass, you can never be sure. The two-star general was killed, and 15 fellow allied soldiers wounded, not on the battlefield but in the seemingly secure confines of a military base — in this instance, a training school outside Kabul.

Each Jihadist terror organization around the globe has a specific goal in mind and that is the formation of an Islamic state ruled by Shariah. This is very important to understand because this is a common goal of all the major Jihadist organizations across the world. It...

Appearing on CNN’s State of the Union, Perry rejected the notion that his decision to deploy 1,000 National Guard troops to the Texas-Mexico border was related to a prospective 2016 presidential bid. “It hasn’t got anything to do with anything other than those numbers of individuals who are coming across the border,” he said. “And when you think...

But Erdogan’s opponents say it has been an unfair contest, a charge the prime minister dismisses. An Erdogan victory would concentrate more power in the hands of a man who has divided Turkish society along secular-religious lines and worried Turkey’s western allies.

    Just as Yasir Arafat orchestrated the Intifada of 2000 while ostensibly talking Peace in Camp David, Hamas has been planning a massive Tunnel War ever since Operation Cast Lead in 2008. There have been reports that this was supposed to happen on the Jewish New Year but was pre-empted by Israel's Defensive Action-"Operation Protective Edge". The Kidnapping and Murder of Neftali Fraenkel, Gilad Shaar, and Eyal Yifrach which prompted Israel's Defensive Operation was no doubt a part of an overall strategy by Hamas leading up to its planned Tunnel Invasion in September. Its stockpiling of rockets in schools, mosques, hospitals,...

    At his press conference today Barack Obama accused the United States of torture. Obama drops drone bombs instead. In his mind, it’s more ethical. The AP reported, via Free Republic: President Barack Obama says in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, the United States did things that were wrong and crossed the line. He says, quote, “we tortured some folks.” Obama is commenting on a Senate investigation into the CIA’s interrogation techniques. A report on that investigation’s results is expected to be released in the coming weeks. Obama says it’s important to remember how horrified Americans were after 9/11. But he...

    After failing to attract al-Qaeda in Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), the group formerly known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is now trying to gain the support of Libya's Ansar al-Sharia. An ISIS supporter recently endorsed the terror group on a global jihadist forum. On July 23rd, the militant urged ISIS followers to repost his comments on social networking websites, in order to push Ansar al-Sharia in Libya to swear allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Earlier this month, Abdelmalek Droukdel's al-Qaeda subsidiary refused to recognise the self-proclaimed caliphate and instead renewed allegiance to the parent organisation led by...

    Boko Haram Mass Abduction: Fears Chibok Girls Being Used as Suicide Bombers Fears are growing that Boko Haram terror group is using the 220 girls it abducted in Chibok last April as suicide bombers.

The same day, Nigerian authorities arrested two suspected Boko Haram members travelling with a...
  • One thought on the war in Gaza

    Perhaps I’m missing something in all of the outcry over the Israeli action in Gaza, but what, really, is Israel supposed to do? What’s the right response to having a country on your border that sponsors – openly – rocket attacks on your territory, and has built a network of tunnels under the border and a whole terror infrastructure from which its operatives can enter the territory and attack your citizens? How would we respond if Mexico did this – not just some rogue band of Mexican “drug lords,” but the Mexican people, acting through their elected representatives? Or to...

    Despite a history of rocky relations between U.S. President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Obama administration could largely be counted on to watch Israel’s back in the U.N. Security Council, where it succeeded for more than five years in blocking successive efforts by the Palestinians to gain more of the trappings of an independent state and to get the world body to formally censure Israeli settlement policies. That changed after the stroke of midnight Sunday when, in the early minutes of Monday, July 28, the U.N. Security Council, with the backing of the United States, issued...

    Outrage as Muslim mayor of Tower Hamlets orders the Palestinian flag to fly over town hall 'in solidarity with Gaza' Tower Hamlets's Muslim mayor Lutfur Rahman sparked a storm of protest tonight after raising the Palestinian flag over the town hall ‘in solidarity with Gaza’. Barely 24 hours after it emerged Mr Rahman is to face trial over claims he committed widespread voting fraud, he ordered the flag to fly ‘in support of a ceasefire and peace’. Jewish leaders condemned the move as 'destructive' for community relations as local residents said the council should concentrate on 'potholes and bins' and...

    BY: Washington Free Beacon Staff July 29, 2014 12:28 pm Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) blasted U.S. nuclear negotiations with Iran Tuesday, saying the rolling back of sanctions and allowance of the world’s largest sponsor of terrorism to enrich uranium constituted a “dangerous national security failure.” “This entire thing is a disaster,” Rubio said. “It’s not just an embarrassing diplomatic failure. This is a dangerous national security failure, in my opinion.” News broke earlier this month that nuclear talks were extended until November as the sides sought a more comprehensive deal. During that time, however, the U.S. will give Iran...
