    MSNBC host Touré founded a student newspaper dedicated to black liberation theology while he was a college student attending Emory University from 1989 to 1992. Touré’s flagship publication, The Fire This Time, lavished praise on famous anti-Semites, black supremacists, and conspiracy theorists whom Touré helped bring to campus. Before he became an intense-but-sardonic TV personality, Touré also decried “the suffocating white community” and defended a nationally famous fake hate crime. In an interview with The Daily Caller, Touré described the newspaper as “an important black voice on campus” and “a form of community building.”

    The revolutions that swept the Middle East and North Africa also emptied prisons of militants, a problem now emerging as a potential new terrorist threat. Fighters linked to one freed militant, Muhammad Jamal Abu Ahmad, took part in the Sept. 11 attack on U.S. diplomatic outposts in Libya that killed four Americans, U.S. officials believe based on initial reports. Intelligence reports suggest that some of the attackers trained at camps he established in the Libyan Desert, a former U.S. official said. Western officials say Mr. Ahmad has petitioned the chief of Al Qaeda, to whom he has long ties, for...

    Bill Clinton: No president could have "magically" fixed economy in one term By Leigh Ann Caldwell Last Updated 10:12 a.m. ET (CBS News) Former President Bill Clinton offered a strong defense for President Obama's re-election Sunday morning, arguing that no president could have "fully healed" the economy in four years. "That's why we've got to keep working at it," Mr. Clinton said on "Face the Nation." The president's efforts, Mr. Clinton argued, have reversed the downward spiral of losing up to 800,000 jobs per month. "His jobs record is better" than the Bush administration's, he said, adding that no president...

    A range of Lego-style fighting figurines - including an Islamic terrorist militant - has sparked outrage among Muslims. The toy mini-figures, made by American Will Chapman, includes a masked terrorist bandit with an assault rifle, grenade launcher and belt of explosives. Shocked by the playthings, British Muslim organisation the Ramadhan Foundation has branded the figurines "absolutely disgusting". Chief executive Mohammed Shafiq said the figures were "glorifying terrorism". He said: "I don't think there's any difference between someone that shouts hatred through a megaphone and someone that creates a doll that glorifies terrorists.

The study, using research by the center and tips from the public, found more than 11,500 social networks, websites, forums and blogs promoting violence, anti-Semitism, homophobia, hate music and "terrorism," an increase from 10,000 last year.

    MIRANSHAH, Pakistan (AFP) – Pakistani gunship helicopters on Friday pounded a suspected militant hideout in a northwestern tribal area known for sheltering Taliban and Al-Qaeda fighters, officials said. The assault in North Waziristan comes a day after US Defence Secretary Robert Gates asked Islamabad about their plans to expand an existing anti-Taliban offensive into the district bordering Afghanistan. "Two gunship helicopters attacked a suspected militant centre," a security official in North Waziristan's main town Miranshah said. The attack took place on the outskirts of Miranshah in an old refugee camp now home to both Afghan migrants and Pakistanis. Authorities also...

    The militant insurgency that has taken an enormous human toll in many regions of Pakistan in recent months assumed a sectarian dimension last week as it turned its fury on the country's minority Shiite Muslims. In so doing, the militants added Karachi, the country's largest city, a major port and the financial center, and Muzaffarabad, capital of Pakistan-controlled Kashmir province, to its list of targeted cities for spreading mayhem. Prior to that, Karachi and Muzaffarabad had been spared the worst of the violence of the past four months in which hundreds have died, with civilians from all walks of life...

One of the men is Mangal Bagh, head of militant Lashkar-e-Islam, who stands accused by officials of running torture centres and private jails in Khyber. Bagh has a bounty of five million rupees on his head, while two other militant leaders have two-million-rupee rewards.

    A Pakistani court has ordered the release of the leader of an Islamic charity suspected of being a front for a group accused of the Mumbai attacks. The court ruled the continued house arrest of Jamaat-ud-Dawa founder Hafiz Mohammad Saeed was unconstitutional. The charity is accused of being a front for Lashkar-e-Taiba, the group India says was behind the attacks. Mr Saeed is also a founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba. India has expressed its disappointment, calling the release "regrettable". More than 170 people died in the Mumbai (Bombay) attacks last November, including nine gunmen.

    Europeans need to wake up to the fact that militant "Muslims" are waging an incremental war of conquest against their countries and societies. Only the fact that some of these invaders lack patience for incremental conquest provides ample warning through violent rhetoric, threats, and behavior. The model for this incremental conquest seems well defined: (1) Infest the target country with militant "Islamic" immigrants, students, and so on to set up a beachhead for the takeover. (2) This advance guard does not, under any circumstances, assimilate with the surrounding society. Instead, it insists that the surrounding society conform to its desires...

The raid came amid international calls for calm one day after Hamas ended a six-month truce and with growing internal pressure on the Israeli government to take tough action in Gaza.

Using forceful, but not angry, hand gestures, Obama literally backed up Lieberman against the wall, leaned in very close at times, and appeared to be trying to dominate the conversation, as the two talked over each other in...

    Barack Obama’s favorability ratings among white women have significantly depreciated in recent months, particularly among Democrats and independents, posing an immediate obstacle for the likely Democratic nominee as he moves to shore up his party’s base. According to a new report by The Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, half of white women now have a negative perception of Obama. Forty-nine percent of white women view Obama unfavorably, while only 43 percent hold a favorable opinion. In February, 36 percent of these women viewed Obama unfavorably while 56 percent had a positive perception of the likely Democratic...

    I want to thank Charlie Payne for his part in serving during World War II and in his part in helping liberate the Buchenwald concentration camp. And I want to say, that I am sorry that he will now have his privacy be subject to the harassing media and reporters who are seeking a story. As with many who served, many would prefer to keep such matters private. My father served in Germany during WWII, but he does not like to go into details, though I do know enough to give an accurate accounting. And I am sure that Democratic...

    WASHINGTON - Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama accused President Bush on Thursday of launching a "false political attack" with a comment about appeasing terrorists and radicals. The Illinois senator interpreted the remark as a slam against him but the White House denied that Bush's words were in any way directed at Obama, who has said as president he would be willing to personally meet with Iran's leaders and those of other regimes the United States has deemed rogue. In a speech to Israel's Knesset, Bush said: "Some seem to believe that we should negotiate with the terrorists and radicals, as...

    BAGHDAD - The U.S. military fired guided missiles into the heart of Baghdad's teeming Sadr City slum on Saturday, leveling a building 55 yards away from a hospital and wounding nearly two dozen people.

The military also said that a U.S. soldier died of wounds suffered in a roadside bomb that struck the soldier's vehicle during a combat patrol in eastern Baghdad Friday. At least 4,071 members of the U.S. military have died since the beginning of the Iraq...

    Senator Barack Obama is starring in a growing number of campaign commercials, but the latest batch is being underwritten by Republicans. In a sign that the racial, class and values issues simmering in the presidential campaign could spread into the larger political arena, Republican groups are turning recent bumps in Mr. Obama’s road — notably his comment that small-town Americans “cling” to guns and religion out of bitterness and a fiery speech by his former minister in which he condemned the United States — into attacks against Democrats down the ticket. “The public, week by week, is becoming more familiar...

    ISLAMABAD (AFP) - Pakistani security forces arrested a top militant with links to Osama bin Laden in connection with an October assassination attempt on Benazir Bhutto, the interior minister said Tuesday. Qari Saifullah Akhtar -- a top extremist leader accused by Bhutto of plotting against her in a book published after her assassination in December -- was seized on Monday, interior minister Hamid Nawaz told AFP. "Most probably he is involved in the attack in Karsaz on Benazir Bhutto's rally. He is a big character," Nawaz said, referring to the October attack on Bhutto's homecoming parade in Karachi's Karsaz district...

    DAMASCUS, Syria - Imad Mughniyeh, the suspected mastermind of dramatic attacks on the U.S. Embassy and U.S. Marine barracks that killed hundreds of Americans in Lebanon in the 1980s, has died in a car bombing in Syria. The Islamic militant group Hezbollah and its Iranian backers on Wednesday blamed Israel for the killing of Mughniyeh, Hezbollah's security chief in the 1980s who was one of the world's most wanted and elusive terrorists. Israel denied involvement. Hezbollah did not say how or where Mughniyeh was killed. But Iranian state television and the National Organization for Human Rights in Syria said he...

    LONDON (AFP) - An Islamist extremist hatched a plot to kidnap a British Muslim soldier on a night out in Birmingham and behead him "like a pig" in a lock-up garage, a court heard Tuesday. Parviz Kahn, who has pleaded guilty with three other men to charges linked to the plan, then intended to release footage of the killing on the Internet, Leicester Crown Court was told. Prosecutor Nigel Rumfitt gave details of the plot to the jury as he opened the case against two other men, who have denied offences linked to the conspiracy. Kahn, 37, pleaded guilty earlier...
