So she did not accept their advice," Mario Joseph explained on HM Television.At the time of his mother's pregnancy crisis she prayed: "Allah, life belongs to you so I know you can give life. If you give life to this baby I will surrender this baby to you."Joseph was led to believe his...

    U.S.—After revered men’s fashion magazine GQ published an article claiming the Bible was overrated, the nation began patiently waiting for the publication to claim the same for the Koran or other religious texts, sources confirmed Monday.Upon learning of the mag’s recent criticism of the Bible, the nation collectively refreshed GQ’s website and scanned for information on its upcoming issue to determine when the follow-up article criticizing the Koran the team is definitely working on would be published. “Any second now, they’ll come through,” Andy Paulson, 32, said in an interview. “Any magazine bold enough to call out Christians’ sacred texts...

    The Qur’an teaches that men are superior to women and should beat those from whom they “fear disobedience”: “Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.” — Qur’an 4:34 Muhammad’s child bride, Aisha, says in a hadith that Muhammad “struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said:...
  • Remembering the 1993 World Trade Center bombing 25 years later

    Twenty-five years ago, the World Trade Center was attacked for the first time, shaking New York City and the nation. The 1993 World Trade Center bombing killed six people, including a pregnant woman, and injured more than a thousand others. On Feb. 26. 1993 at 12:18 pm, a 1,200-pound bomb exploded in an underground parking garage beneath the North Tower. The explosion caused power outages, stranding people in elevators and affecting communication systems. Smoke also began seeping through the towers, with some people on higher floors breaking windows to get air. With the elevators not working, people began running down...
  • Are Russia’s 20 million Muslims seething about Putin bombing Syria?

    Washington Post ^ | Egor Lazarev and Anna Biryukova
    Many observers have warned that Putin’s military campaign in Syria may backfire at home. Russia’s 144 million people include about 20 million Muslims; the overwhelming majority are Sunnis. Some analysts believe that these Russian Sunnis will recoil from Russia’s support for Assad’s Alawite-dominated regime and its attacks on Sunni rebels, and from Russia’s effort to lead a coalition of Shiite powers, Iran, Iraq and Syria. If pundits’ predictions were true, Muslims would be more likely to choose the anti-war response and less likely to support Putin’s intervention. But that’s not exactly what we found. ...There wasn’t a consensus among any...

    The Unholy Alliance's propaganda train is never late. Jennifer Williams is a great enthusiast not just for Christmas,  but for the Muslim Jesus, about whom she is sure you have never heard, and she’s here to enlighten you: Christmas, as everyone knows, commemorates the birth of Jesus and is a major religious celebration for Christians around the world. But what many people don’t know is that Jesus is an important figure in Islam, too, even though most Muslims don’t celebrate Christmas (though some, especially some American Muslims, do). Actually, by now many Infidels all over the Western world do know...

    New statistics from the Ministry of the Interior show that last year's sex offenders have reached a dramatic peak: from 2015 to 2016 a rise of 26.18 percent. It is especially striking that Afghans are often seen as perpetrators in statistics. As the "press" reported on Thursday, 5253 sexual offenses were reported in 2016, compared with 4163 cases the year before. In 2017, on the other hand, a better result could be steered, as in the first half-year, 2422 sexual offenses were reported. Afghans are at the top of sex offenders A look at the nationalities of the suspects in...

    In the picture, he departs from this earth like an arrow. Although he has not chosen his fate, he appears to have, in his last instants of life, embraced it. If he were not falling, he might very well be flying. He appears relaxed, hurtling through the air. He appears comfortable in the grip of unimaginable motion. He does not appear intimidated by gravity's divine suction or by what awaits him. His arms are by his side, only slightly outriggered. His left leg is bent at the knee, almost casually. His white shirt, or jacket, or frock, is billowing free...
  • Islam's Bizarre Philosophical Problem (An amazing contradictory statement: the Koran is eternal)

    American Thinker ^ | 07/21/2017 | Michael Konrad
    When attacking an epistemological structure, it is a often a waste of time to attack the consequences of a belief system when one can cut it down at the root. Islam has such a bizarre problem. And Muslims avoid it, for fear it would cause the whole religion to collapse. Islam, like Judaism, is monadic. It only admits of a hard absolutely unitary deity. However, Islam makes an amazing contradictory statement: the Koran is eternal. This introduces a real problem.  Anything which is eternal is, by definition, deity. And that strikes at the very core of Islam's claim to...

    SNOPES CARRIES WATER FOR MUHAMMAD “Mostly False” Indiana billboard is actually 100% true. ​The self-proclaimed fact-checker Snopes.com has been harshly criticized for its Leftist bias, and as is so often the case, a tilt to the Left also means a willingness to foster ignorance and complacency about the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat. After a billboard went up in Indiana pointing out six unsavory aspects of the life of Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, Snopes labeled the billboard’s charges “Mostly False” – but that label applies far more accurately to the Snopes report than to the billboard. Snopes’...

Colleagues of the victim, who is in her 30s but has not been named, said the attack took place on Wednesday morning when she was on her to work at the Little Diamonds nursery in east London. She was taken to hospital but her injuries are not thought to be life threatening. Karrien Stevens, who runs the nursery, said she was “horrified”. She said: “A staff member was coming to work when three Asian girls came up behind her...

    While I don’t recall the first time I saw a hijab-clad woman, I know it was years after the Muslim surprise attack on September 11th, 2001. Similarly, I admit to viewing my first mosque, a shiny new one, just a few months ago. Why, only recently, and over a decade after 911, is Islam ascendant in America? The spark for this squib is Daniel Boorstin’s 1992 book, The Creators. In Chapter Eight he explores “The Uncreated Koran,” which sheds light on why Islam cannot coexist with American free government. For the moment, put aside the ongoing Ramadan Bombathon (Fifty-five worldwide...

    In this excellent piece, George Neumayr refers to the rupture of relations between the Vatican and al-Azhar that took place during the time of Pope Benedict. As I explained here, that rupture took place because Pope Benedict dared to speak out about the Muslim persecution of Christians. By contrast, Francis energetically defends Islam, and leaves the persecuted Christians twisting in the wind, so he is acceptable to al-Azhar. The worst part about this is the fact that because this man is Pope, all too many Catholics, including some in positions of high authority, treat him as if he were a...

Mike Rogers (R-MI) and Sec. of State Clinton on weapons collections in Libya — would be left unredacted, while many other emails in the Clinton trove are redacted in toto. This may be because news reports around the September 10, 2011 email date indicate...
