    Sunday, June 02, 2013 Islam is the Problem Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog On a mild London afternoon, two Muslims rammed a car into a British soldier returning to the barracks after working at the Tower of London. They shouted Allah Akbar and hacked and slashed at his body in an attempt to behead him. By the time they were done, his body could only be identified through dental records. Shortly afterward, British Prime Minister David Cameron said that “there is nothing in Islam that justifies this truly dreadful act”. London Mayor Boris Johnson added, “It...

    An Israeli filmmaker based in California went into hiding Tuesday after his movie attacking Islam's prophet Muhammad sparked angry assaults by ultra-conservative Muslims on U.S. missions in Egypt and Libya, where one American was killed. Speaking by phone from an undisclosed location, writer and director Sam Bacile remained defiant, saying Islam is a cancer and that the 56-year-old intended his film to be a provocative political statement condemning the religion. Protesters angered over Bacile's film opened fire on and burned down the U.S. consulate in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi, killing an American diplomat on Tuesday. In Egypt, protesters...

    The White House deployed Mr. Biden to NBC's "Meet the Press" to counter Mr. Cheney, a task the current vice president approached with his usual mix of fact, fancy and befuddlement. He pointed out that the Obama administration is effectively using expanded drone attacks on terrorist leaders in Pakistan and elsewhere, but he failed to note that this was a George W. Bush-era policy that the Obama administration wisely has continued. He dodged the question of what might happen if terrorist mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed is acquitted at his trial, repeating the Obama team's line that "he will not be...

    Reporting from Washington - The Obama administration, grappling with a spate of recent Islamic terrorism cases on U.S. soil, has concluded that the country confronts a rising threat from homegrown extremism. Anti-terrorism officials and experts see signs of accelerated radicalization among American Muslims, driven by a wave of English-language online propaganda and reflected in aspiring fighters' trips to hot spots such as Pakistan and Somalia.

    The recent attack at Fort Hood in Texas, where an Army Major by the name of Nidal Malik Hasan who opened fire on 43 of his fellow soldiers, killing 12 and injuring 31, is currently in critical condition after being shot 4 times in an attempt to stop him from killing and injuring more. But there is more to the story, and the media (aside from Fox News and talk radio) is not really covering it. Before Hasan fired on his fellow soldiers, he shouted, the words "Allah Akbar" which is Arabic for “God is great,” and is normally shouted...

    HOME to Europe’s biggest Muslim population and a robust counter-terrorism system, France has long kept a keen watch on Islamic radicalism. In recent years it has been spared big bombings of the kind seen in London and Madrid. But France is no stranger to attack by jihadists, and officials fear it is just a matter of time before they strike again. The authorities are particularly worried about recruitment to militant Islam in France’s overcrowded prisons. “French prisons are a preferred recruiting ground for radical Islamists,” Michèle Alliot-Marie, the interior minister, told Le Figaro newspaper. She and her EU counterparts have...
  • Sweden at risk of becoming terrorist base

    STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Aug. 6 (UPI) -- Sweden is in danger of becoming a recruiting center for terrorists planning attacks on other countries, it was reported Monday. At least 20 Swedes, most with suspected links to Islamic extremists, have been arrested world wide on suspicion of terror since 2001, The Local reported. Sweden’s security service, Sapo, said the country could be used to recruit, finance and plan attacks elsewhere, The Local reported. Swedes arrested for terrorist activities since 2002 include Mirsad Bektasevic, jailed for eight years in Bosnia, and Oussama Kassir, suspected by U.S. authorities of helping set up a terrorist...

    In a sermon during Ramadan Sheikh Taj Aldin al-Hilali, Australia's most prominent Muslim cleric, said that women invite rape by not covering themselves head to toe: "If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside ... and the cats come to eat it ... whose fault is it, the cats' or the uncovered meat's?" "The uncovered meat is the problem. If she was in her room, in her home, in her hijab, no problem would have occurred" … Australia's Sex Discrimination Commissioner Pru Goward said al-Hilali's comments encouraged rape and that Muslims should force him to quit. If The...
  • The True Idolatry of Muslim Extremism

    Over the past few weeks, rioting in Europe and the Middle East has been spawned by cartoons depicting Muhammad in an unpleasant, though possibly accurate, manner. Muslim extremists are outraged by this so-called blasphemous "idolatry" of others through caricatures, even though versions of the cartoons were published in Islamic media as well as those that appeared in the Danish press and in other European newspapers. A few questions immediately come to mind, however. If non-Muslims are "infidels," how can these extremists expect the rest of the world to act as if we were Muslim? How can the non-Muslim world be...
