    Last night at the University of California Irvine, the Muslim Students Union staged a threatening, thuggish disruption of a talk by Daniel Pipes. UC Irvine is a hotbed of Muslim radicalism, as we’ve documented many times at LGF, but you may not have understood how bad it is until you see this. (Watch out for a burst of white noise near the middle.)
  • Warning bells in Britain (British report on Muslim attitude to democracy alarming)

    An important and interesting report by an independent think-tank released in Britain Monday has found that young Muslims are heading toward religious extremism. This is not just a warning bell, it is a thunderous one, but Europeans are unable to take action lest they be accused of not being liberal. On the contrary, the main lessons drawn from the British research is one of self–flagellation, with Brits asking what they did wrong and why they had discriminated against the Muslim community. The research was based, among other things, on a survey conducted among the Muslim population that showed 37 percent...

  • Taking the Fight to CAIR--Dennis Prager responds to charges of "Islamophobia."

    Victims of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) take heart.  No longer is it necessary to offer apologies or disclaimers -- a la Kiefer Sutherland of “24”-- when the supposed civil rights group accuses you of Islamophobia.  According to talk-show host and columnist Dennis Prager, who recently told the Los Angeles Times that he is proud to be attacked by the “radical Islamist organization,” it is much better to wear CAIR’s contempt as a badge of honor.  Publicity is another benefit of being publicly smeared by CAIR, as was evident on the evening of January 24 when a packed house...

    Like Freddy Krueger, the anti-Western monsters of the so-called human rights groups reappear every month or so proclaiming: “I’m back!” Their mission is to derail our attempts at defending ourselves against jihadism by demanding impossibly high and foolish standards from America and Israel as to what is allowable in fighting terror while overlooking the daily atrocities by Islamic radicals against the West. Listening to them, one comes away believing that the only place in the world where torture is taking place is at Gitmo and that the only victims today of cruelty are Islamic terrorists and the “peace-loving” crowds in...

    Defence bosses dismissed footage of British soldiers apparently playing "chicken" with a low flying Harrier jump jet as servicemen "letting off steam". The 15-second video of the daredevil game was apparently filmed at Kandahar air base in southern Afghanistan. It showed one soldier standing with his back towards the horizon as the £40 million war plane approaches at high speed. The Harrier, capable of speeds of up to 660mph, can be seen and heard approaching as his colleagues behind the camera egg him on. But as it thunders just metres overhead the soldier glances over his shoulder and dives to...

    Unemployment Is Low and Workers Are Sharing in Productivity Growth With the midterm elections barely a month away, the state of the economy has become an increasingly political issue. Many candidates have claimed that the economy is doing poorly and that growth has not been passed on to workers. In an election year, it’s expected that politicians will take some liberties with the facts. But, in the case of the economy, politicians should not get away with spinning gold into straw to score political points. While the economy is not doing as well as it did at the height of...

It picks up in the oval office, where Stan, Kyle, and a 911Truth idiot have been brought by the CIA after finding out too much. But what transpires there proves to be a ruse, and only later do they learn the shocking truth — that the Truthers themselves are part of the conspiracy. Which isn’t the first time that particular charge has been leveled, and won’t be the last.

There have been three school shootings in the past week, starting with the one on Sept. 26 in Bailey, Colo., where a disturbed man walked into Platte Canyon High School, held six female students hostage, eventually killing one of them as well as himself.

Drivers at a RaceTrac station near Interstate 35E in Lewisville early Tuesday morning were surprised but delighted to be pocketing some extra change after a fill-up. The price per gallon is 50 cents less than it was just a month ago. But is the drop due to the end of the summer driving season, or something else? According to a new Gallup poll, 42 percent of respondents agreed with the statement that the Bush administration "deliberately...

    In the Monday, September 18th addition of the USA Today, a Tennessee minister named Oliver Thomas wrote an op-ed column entitled "A Christian view of war." While Thomas expressed many sentiments worthy of consideration, he made a fundamental theological error in his analysis, which tends to be one of the integral components in delineating the ideology of the religious left from the religious right. Thomas chided Christians in America for forgetting Jesus' teachings from the Sermon on the Mount. Chief among them are "Blessed are the peacemakers," "Turn the other cheek," and "Pray for your enemies." Now, I don't fault...

Martin Luther King Jr. was a Republican, a claim challenged by civil-rights researchers. Lt. Gov. Michael Steele, the black Republican nominee for Maryland's open Senate seat, disavowed the ad Thursday as "insulting to Marylanders." He said his campaign asked the Washington-based National Black Republican Association to stop running it. At an event in Baltimore, Steele said, "I don't know exactly what the intent of the ad was" but that "it's not helpful to the...

    The American Muslim ^ | sept 20, 2006 | Iftekhar Hai
    Posted Sep 20, 2006 • Permalink • Printer-Friendly Version -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- American Muslims Accept Pope’s Apology United Muslims of America Interfaith Alliance (UMAIA) It is time to move on. We take Pope Benedict’s apology seriously and we urge American Muslims to take leadership positions to condemn religiously motivated violence and work more deligently for building inter-religious cultures of peace and healing. We deeply regret the violence and the loss of life that has occured. This is not acceptable. We also accept our inability to control the actions of 1.3 billion Muslims spread all over the world.

    Illegal immigration has gone country. While politicians in Washington continue their months-long slog to reach a compromise on a proposal overhauling the country's immigration system, a pair of veterans in the Central Texas country music scene hope their latest collaboration at least may serve as educational entertainment for a desperate public still longing for changes. It remains to be seen if the nascent effort will draw national attention, but it seems to have captivated folks in the Waco area in less than a week. The song, "So Long, Texas — Hello, Mexico!" has drawn interest not just in Waco but,...

    The text of President Bush's address Tuesday to the General Assembly at the United Nations, as transcribed by CQ Transcriptions: BUSH: Mr. Secretary General, Madam President, distinguished delegates, and ladies and gentlemen, I want to thank you for the privilege of speaking to this General Assembly. Last week America and the world marked the fifth anniversary of the attacks that filled another September morning with death and suffering. On that terrible day, extremists killed nearly 3,000 innocent people, including citizens of dozens of nations represented right here in this chamber. Since then, the enemies of humanity have continued their campaign...

    The events of the past week, especially the predictable and violent reaction of radical Islamic opinion to the Pope’s remarks, have thrown into sharp relief the primary lines of battle of the coming war. And make no mistake: a world war is coming, as between Western civilization, represented primarily by the United States on one side, and the forces of radical Islam on the other. Of course (and as many of us are aware) numerous articles have already been written assuming the war has already begun, and quibbling over whether this is World War III or World War IV and...

    'Chatbot' king George looks for human friends on the internet Sep 15 6:00 AM US/Eastern George, who is 39, single and light-hearted, is looking for friends on the Internet. He has gifts -- the ability to speak in 40 languages and with 2,000 people at the same time. And one quirk: he doesn't really exist. George is a piece of software, arguably the best of the speaking "chatbots" or talking robots, and he's recently received the Loebner prize in Britain, a scientific award recognising the machines best capable of matching the most realistic human dialogues with their own. Seven years...
