    Yet another jihadist gets the crazy idea that “when you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks” (Qur’an 47:4) means “when you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks.” Obviously only someone who knows nothing about Islam could make a mistake like that.And she is a doctor to boot.

    A SOLDIER was attacked in an Exeter underpass by a gang who chanted “Lee Rigby” as they kicked him on the floor. The 18-year-old, known as Alexander, has been a member of the Coldstream Guards for six months. But on route to his home in St Thomas, Exeter, he said he was targeted by the hateful mob as he is a serving member of the armed forces. After a period of about two minutes he managed to escape after fighting off but fear his injuries could have been a lot worse. The incident happened at just before 2pm on Wednesday...

    Five prison officers have been suspended after one of the men accused of hacking off-duty soldier Lee Rigby to death in Woolwich had two teeth knocked out. The men were suspended from their duties from top-security Belmarsh Prison in south London after the alleged attack on Michael Adebolajo, 28, three days ago. He had refused to obey officers’ instructions and had to be restrained, according to prison sources. It is understood that five officers have to be on hand when Adebolajo leaves his cell. Four of the officers were suspended on Thursday, while the fifth was suspended yesterday. All of...

    Finally we got to remember the man and not the act as the horror of Woolwich was temporarily put to one side. At last, among family, friends, comrades and his extended Greater Manchester clan, the celebration of a special character “who put a smile on everyone’s face” took centre stage. The presence of Prime Minister David Cameron and London Mayor Boris Johnson may have reminded mourners of the city in which Fusilier Lee Rigby was ­horrifically slain and the global impact images of his death had. But this funeral was about saying thank you for the life of a loyal...

    A London mosque has turned to a local group of Jewish volunteers in attempt to boost security, following a spike in anti-Muslim attacks. The Jewish Chronicle reported on a unique meeting which took place over the weekend between Muslim leaders and members of the “Shomrim”, at the Cazenove Road Mosque and Community Centre in Stoke Newington. The Shomrim are a group of Jewish volunteers who work with local authorities to combat local crime, including anti-Semitism. Chapters also exist in the United States. …

    Tony Blair today makes his most powerful political intervention since leaving Downing Street by launching an outspoken attack on ‘the problem within Islam’. The former Prime Minister addresses the shocking killing of Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich by going further than he – or any front-rank British politician – has gone before over the issue of Muslim radicalism. Writing in today’s Mail on Sunday, he departs from the usual argument that Islam is a peaceful religion that should not be tainted by the actions of a few extremists. Instead, Mr Blair urges governments to ‘be honest’ and admit that the...

    Ever since 9/11, every time some place or another on the planet has been struck by a major jihadist act, the mainstream media have reliably come out with stories about “backlash” against Muslims. Not accounts of actual backlash, mind you, but pieces in which various academics, public officials, Muslim leaders, and other sensitive souls have been described as wringing their hands over the dreaded possibility that some of us boorish infidels might respond to this latest action by going on the warpath against innocent Muslims. If these “backlash” articles have been such a staple of post-9/11 journalism, it’s obviously because...

    In the immediate aftermath of the recent Islamic butchering of a British soldier in broad daylight on a London street, Twitter was awash in outrage — but not so much against the Muslim terrorists. The massive outrage and hatred was directed against the controversial protest movement known as the English Defence League. You read that right. Endless numbers of deranged, brainwashed, politically-correct people took to social media to denounce (in the most derisive and hateful words) not the fact that murderous Muslims had once again made a gruesome public display of jihad on English soil — and boldly rubbed the...

    Exclusive: Pamela Geller laughs out loud in response to media's coverage of jihadi attack A total of 10 Muslims have been arrested (as of this writing) in the beheading of Lee Rigby, a young British soldier and father, in the streets of London last Wednesday. There is no way we can yet know how many were involved in the plot to “start a war in the streets of London” that night. But the lone-wolf Islamic brigade is larger than the media led us to believe. Islamic clerics in the United Kingdom – not all, but you don’t need all to...

    They want people to spy on the neighbors. Why? So they'll be charged with racist-islamophobia-anti-muslim-bigotry? The London beheader was on British intel's radar for two years; what good did that do? The Brits arrested a couple of people for "anti-Islamic" tweets in the wake of the beheading. What rational person would come forward to turn in a devout Muslim? Scores of young non-Muslim British girls who were raped and sold like meat by Muslim gangs repeatedly went to law enforcement and the law did nothing. EDL members protest against Islamic supremacism and get arrested. EDL leaders Tommy Robinson and Kev...

    If you read complaints in civil litigation proceedings or spend much time in a courtroom listening to the plaintiff's attorney present his case in a tort action – you will hear a lot of these two phrases – “had reason to know” and “should have known”. This would be fully applicable in the case of negligence on the part of the British government, contributing to the death of Soldier Lee Rigby in Woolwich – a district in South East London. They had “reason to know” that they had an imported islamist terror element in their midst and they “should have...

From the closest of relatives to complete strangers, thousands have visited the makeshift shrine near Woolwich Barracks, marking the scene where Drummer Lee Rigby was killed by cleaver-wielding fanatics last Wednesday. His killers said they were acting in the name of Allah – but yesterday Muslims bowed their heads in prayer to honour the victim’s memory, and reject the vile hatred of those who butchered him in broad daylight. Heads bowed and hands together, these men paid their respects to the...

    BBC News political editor Nick Robinson apologized last week for originally identifying the London stabbing as having a “Muslim appearance” based on quotes given to him by law enforcement. Appearing on the News at Six the day of the Woolwich attack, Robinson explained that his law enforcement sources told him the perpetrator was of “Muslim appearance” and had reportedly been shouting “Allahu Akbar,” the Arabic phrase for “God is great.” The report apparently generated controversy, especially within the United Kingdom’s Muslim community, who felt the comment represented an unfair “racist generalization.” Several days later, Robinson took to the BBC website...

    David Cameron is planning new powers to muzzle Islamic hate preachers accused of provoking terrorist outrages such as the killing of soldier Lee Rigby. The Prime Minister wants to stop extremist clerics using schools, colleges, prisons and mosques to spread their “poison”, and is to head a new Tackling Extremism and Radicalization Task Force (TERFOR) made up of senior Ministers, MI5, police and moderate religious leaders.The high-powered group will study a number of measures, including banning extremist clerics from being given public platforms to incite students, prisoners and other followers—and forcing mosque leaders to answer for “hate preachers”. It will...

    Police, politicians and activists in Britain are warning of rising anti-Muslim sentiment following the slaughter of an off-duty British soldier in a London street, an apparent act of Islamic extremism that has horrified the nation. Metropolitan Police investigating the killing of Lee Rigby, a 25-year-old soldier who was run over by attackers then butchered by knives, arrested three more men in the murder investigation Saturday. Stun guns were used on two of the three men, aged 24 and 28, police said. The latest arrests came as an estimated 1,500 members of an extremist right-wing group called the English Defense League...
