    Update: As I mentioned before you cannot take reporting or statements from the lawless regions of Pakistan at face value. But with that said it is interesting to learn about the young, newly elected Member of Parliament who represents one of the probable havens for al-Qaeda. Meet Kamran Kahn, he has interesting views on what is happening right now in Pakistan: According to Khan, only one percent of the local population supports the militants. [”]The local people are fed up with the violence, the beheadings, and the daily fear. They want to live in peace[”], he said. [”]They want to...

    A MAN claiming to represent al-Qaeda in Australia has left a telephone message at an Arabic Australian newspaper threatening to kill its editor-in-chief and destroy its offices in Sydney and Melbourne. Apparently reading from a script, the Arabic-speaking caller threatened to butcher every Iraqi Kurd and Shiite in Australia. ASIO and NSW police are investigating the message, left for al-Furat editor-in-chief Hussein Khoshnow 10 days ago. The caller claims his "well-structured organisation" will track down the names and addresses of the newspaper's reporters. "We will destroy the newspaper's headquarters in Sydney very soon, God willing," the caller says. "We will...

    Islam is quintessentially tolerant. Its adherents are hospitable to liberty, equality, and pluralism, the rudiments of modern democracy. Those committing terror in its name are heretics — a fringe which has “hijacked” a “religion of peace.” This conventional wisdom brims over the mainstream media’s daily servings. It is, moreover, the not-to-be-questioned premise of U.S. policy on a host of paramount issues: everything from how the war on terror is conceptualized and prosecuted, to the wisdom of negotiations with Iran, a sovereign state for Palestinians, agitation for freedom and popular self-determination throughout the Middle East, and the assumption that our own...

    Qatar-based Al-Jazeera television has aired a video of Al Qaeda number two Ayman al-Zawahiri vowing to avenge the death of the network's Iraq frontman Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Zarqawi was killed in a United States air raid in Iraq on June 7. In the video, Zawahiri is seated in front of a picture of Zarqawi. He addresses US President George W Bush directly. "Yes O Bush, none of us is killed without us avenging him, with the help of God," he said. "Do you remember, O Bush, how the lion of Islam, the mujahed [holy warrior] Osama bin Laden, God keep...

    Iran: Fund to 'demolish' Israel set up Iranian students set up fund dedicated to Israel's destruction. Encouraged by regime, students call fund 'symbolic move' in support of Palestinians A group of Iranian students announced Sunday at an event attended by a high-ranking member of the elite Revolutionary Guard that they were setting up a fund to destroy Israel. Although the initiative's name - "The Student Fund for Demolishing Israel" - brings to mind President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's call last year to destroy the Jewish state, an organizer said its goal was to support the cash-strapped Palestinian government. Some 300 students attended...

It appears in graffiti on middle school walls and neighborhood playgrounds and on the tongues of the young. "It's blacks and Arabs on one side and Jews on the other," said Sebastian Daranal, a young black man standing in the parking lot of a government-subsidized housing project with two friends. Eight men beat the son of a rabbi here in March. Another Jew was attacked the next day. In the wake of the torture and killing in February of...

    Iran has "broken the seals". The phrase refers to the seals placed by UN nuclear inspectors on equipment that, unsealed, enables uranium enrichment, making possible the development of a nuclear bomb. It has a suitably apocalyptic ring. In the Book of Revelation, the Lamb breaks the seven seals and earth-shattering violence ensues: "…the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together… And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men… hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains".

But perhaps it should. The second largest Muslim democracy, Bangladesh is today the site of al-Qaeda-run training camps financed by Middle Eastern charities and organisations, including backing from rogue elements within the Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence. Just as important, it is a laboratory for the disastrous consequences of Islamist participation in the democratic process. Bangladesh’s geography makes it an optimal location for a terrorist network....

    The news from Iraq at this writing features a video of a terrorist murdering a man believed to be a kidnapped American civilian. The victim was trying to help rebuild that country. His cold-blooded execution is a reminder of what our Islamo-fascist enemies have in mind for all of us, non-Islamist Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Perhaps the murder was committed by putting a bullet in our countryman's head, rather than removing it, in deference to the recently disclosed injunction from an al-Qaida leader to one of his franchisees in Iraq that beheadings have proven counterproductive to the cause.

    ARIEL, West Bank, Dec 5 (Reuters) - Every day, Nida Hussein takes a trip that for most Palestinians would be unthinkable -- a two-hour bus ride from Jerusalem to a Jewish settler college in the Israeli-occupied West Bank. Hussein, an 18-year-old from Arab East Jerusalem, is one of more than 300 Arab students, many of them Israeli citizens, enrolled at the College of Judea and Samaria in Ariel, a large settlement cutting deep into land Palestinians want for a state. "It was a little difficult at the beginning, but the most important thing is learning," she said. "Some friends asked...

    It's Easy to Forget Just How Close Saddam Came to Having a Nuclear Weapon in 1991, Despite Regular Inspections by the IAEA & the Eyes of US Intelligence It's easy to forget that Senator Ted Kennedy & Company tried their best to defeat the resolution authorizing force to kick Saddam out of Kuwait. It's easy to forget that Iraq had passed frequent International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspections designed to ensure its compliance with the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) or that its Manhattan Project-sized nuclear program went undetected by US intelligence. It's also easy to forget just how skilled Saddam...

    Hundreds of clan members of terror leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi publicly disowned him Tuesday despite anger from his al-Qaida in Iraq, which said they will face God's judgment for abandoning him. The members of the Bani Hassan tribe published a full-page letter in Jordanian newspapers pronouncing their loyalty to King Abdullah II. The letter bore the stamps and signatures of more than 370 clan members. It was the second attempt to persuade Jordanians that the family has renounced all ties to the man who claimed responsibility for the Nov. 9 triple suicide blasts in Amman hotels that killed 60 people....

    Belgian woman, convert to Islam, ID'd as Iraqi suicide bomber Welcome to Europe's future -- as a source for jihadist recruits. We now have the first European female suicide bomber.

    Iran va Jahan ^ | Thursday, November 10, 2005 | Abbas Milani
    The Bible is full of praise for Persia (today's much-maligned Iran) and for its rulers. In the Book of Ezra, God speaks through the proclamations of Cyrus, the king of Persia, who declares, "The Lord God of Heaven hath given me all the kingdoms of the earth, and he has charged me to build him a house in Jerusalem." Cyrus acceded to this divine command, and thus was the Second Temple in Jerusalem built. In other parts of the Old Testament, there is ringing praise of Cyrus as God's "anointed" and the "chosen" ruler, who freed Jews from their Babylonian...

    Ten years ago this week, the UN was marking its fiftieth anniversary with a series of events around New York City, including an Oct. 23 invitation-only Lincoln Center concert performed by the New York Philharmonic for a glittering list of dignitaries and diplomats. When Rudy Giuliani spotted Yasir Arafat and his entourage making their way to a private box seat near the stage that evening, the mayor immediately ordered the Palestinian leader off the premises. The man in the street cheered the mayor’s gutsy move, but the city’s liberal elite was appalled. “The proper role of New York, as the...

    Saudi author Badriyya Al-Bishr, a lecturer in social sciences at King Saud University, recently published an article titled "Imagine You're a Woman" in the London Arabic-language daily Al-Sharq Al-Awsat. The following are excerpts from her article: [1] "Imagine you're a woman. When your brother is born, people say: 'It's a boy, how wonderful,' and when you are born they say: 'How wonderful, it's a little girl' – using the diminutive form. [2] Your arrival is welcome if [you are] the first or second girl, but it's best if there are no more than two, so that nothing undesirable happens to...

The controversy continues to surround Osama bin Laden and while US and Pakistan officials have often been quoted by the media as saying that his mortal status was just a matter of detail, the hunt is still on and...

    "A decree of death has been passed on America. The judgment of God has been rendered and she must be destroyed..."Louis Farrakhan - 1997 Louis Farrakhan is at it again. With the “Millions More Movement” he has catapulted himself back into the media spotlight in a manner that must make Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton green with envy. One thing that doesn’t get a lot of mention, although most Americans are certainly aware of it, is the fact that Farrakhan isn’t just another “Liberal Black Leader Wannabe.” Farrakhan is the leader of the American Islamic movement, The Nation of Islam....
