Thus, she was both an educated and in some sense, a westernized woman. Both her Pakistani-born father and Pakistani husband are physicians who trained in the West, in England and America, respectively; her brother and sister are also highly trained professionals. Nevertheless, Dr. Aafia Siddiqui learned to hate America, hate Jews, and hate Israel right here in liberal America.Like a small...

    DEARBORN, Mich. — An autopsy report shows that a Muslim prayer leader suffered 21 gunshot wounds during an FBI raid at a warehouse in a Detroit suburb where agents were attempting to arrest him. The report released Monday by the Wayne County medical examiner's office indicates that Luqman Ameen Abdullah was shot once in the back. Earlier Monday, Dearborn Police Chief Ron Haddad (huh-DAD') said it would take several more weeks for his department to complete its investigation into the Oct. 28 shooting. Abdullah was described as a leader of a national radical Sunni group that wants to create an...
  • Bachmann to Obama: Don't let terrorists "lawyer up"

    Rep. Michele Bachmann, a well-known critic of the Obama administration, took a fresh swipe at the president this afternoon for giving the failed Christmas Day bomber access to a lawyer. "We should be using all legal means necessary to push this terrorist to release all his information, not allow him to lawyer up," Bachmann said -- in a statement that appeared to channel former Vice President Dick Cheney. "He should not be afforded the rights of American citizens like you and me. He is a terrorist, and he should be treated like one. "Abdulmutallab’s actions were an act of war...

    Detainees: On the same day three inmates break out of an Illinois prison, a state legislative panel approves selling another Illinois prison to the feds to house former Gitmo detainees. What is wrong with this picture? Only two weeks after a failed al-Qaida attempt to bomb a plane bound for Detroit, an Illinois legislative commission voted Wednesday to support the sale of the abandoned Thomson Correctional Center in Thomson, Ill., to the federal government to house other terrorists who want to kill Americans. What caught our eye is that on the very same day, Illinois experienced a good old-fashioned jail...

    A year after Israeli forces devastated the Gaza Strip, relief workers and others say the overcrowded Palestinian territory, throttled by economic blockade, is being steadily infiltrated by militants inspired by al-Qaida who are getting ready to challenge Hamas for control. The operational capabilities of these groups, which follow the puritanical Salafist strain of Sunni Islam, remain rather murky. But the last thing Israel wants is jihadist groups active on its southern border. Hamas is faced with eroding popular support following Israel's 22-day invasion in which some 1,200 Gazans, mostly civilians, perished. These groups are reported to have a combined strength...

    People in Wootton Bassett, the town famous for honouring dead British soldiers returning from Afghanistan, reacted defiantly on Saturday to news that a controversial Islamic group is to march through its streets. Islam4UK – which calls itself a "platform" for extremist movement al-Muhajiroun – plans to parade through the Wiltshire town in the coming weeks. The group's website says the event is being held "not in memory of the occupying and merciless British military" but of the Muslims its says have been "murdered in the name of democracy and freedom". The town that shows respect for fallen Servicemen should be...

    Jihadists take note: The insanity defense may not work for you. On Tuesday, Naveed Haq, a self-styled soldier of Islam, was found guilty of aggravated first-degree murder and seven other counts related to a 2006 shooting rampage in Seattle. The prosecution successfully argued that Haq was a jihadi terrorist on a mission for martyrdom; the defense said that just proved he was crazy.

    ilitary prosecutors plan to seek the death penalty for alleged Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who was formally charged Thursday with 13 counts of premeditated murder, according to a senior Army officer familiar with the matter. The last execution of an active-duty serviceman took place in 1961. Despite evidence that Maj. Hasan had contact with a radical Muslim cleric, the decision to file the murder charges against him in military court, rather than in a civilian one, reflects the Army's belief that the suspect acted alone and without any assistance from foreign or domestic terror groups. Christopher Grey,...

    The Army psychiatrist accused in the fatal shootings at Fort Hood may be paralyzed from the waist down after being shot multiple times during the attack, his attorney told The Associated Press on Friday. Civilian attorney John Galligan said Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan told him that he had no feeling in his legs and extreme pain in his hands. Hasan, who was shot four times by civilian police officers, said doctors told him the condition may never improve. Galligan said he spoke with Hasan for about an hour in the intensive care unit at Brooke Army Medical Center in San...

Yemen's official Saba news agency said that the cooperation agreement was signed during talks in the capital Sanaa on Tuesday between the two countries' militaries. The news agency also quoted Brigadier General Jeffrey Smith, the commander of the US 5th Signal Command, as renewing Washington's support for Yemen's unity, security and stability. But US embassy spokeswoman Debrah Smith declined to comment on whether any agreement had been signed....

Dar al-Hijrah is a turnstile for terrorists and terror. Remarkably, four of the 9/11 hijackers briefly lived in the town of Falls Church, Virginia, three blocks from the WAMY office headed by Abdullah bin Laden.

    by deeming this a "criminal" act, instead of a terrorist attack, will the Obama administration refuse giving Purple Hearts to our wounded and fallen at Fort Hood? General Cone should not be considered for further promotion, and probably relieved of command for failing to properly secure the Fort Hood installation in wartime. General Casey, Chief of Staff of the Army is working to treat this event as a "criminal act" and not a wartime "terrorist attack". This foolish, "politically correct" thinking is what lead to the 9/11 attacks: a failure to properly identify, and react to, a deliberate attack on...

Nidal Malik Hasan, accused of killing 12 fellow soldiers and one civilian and wounding dozens of others in a shooting rampage at Fort Hood, could “cause a backlash against some of our Muslim soldiers.” “I’ve asked our Army leaders to be on the lookout for that,” General Casey said in an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union. “It would be a shame — as great a tragedy as this was — it would be a...
