    What was your first reaction back in May when you heard of plans to build a mega-mosque near the site of the Twin Towers in New York? Did you assume it was a tasteless joke? Did your jaw drop? Or did you think: "What a good idea. No better place." My bet would be that most readers (including self-described liberal readers) had a touch more of the former reaction than the latter. Some people even said so at the time. A number of families of 9/11 victims spoke out against the building and for a few weeks the idea of...
  • Jihadist Infiltration On Capitol Hill?

    The Hayride ^ | 15 Oct 10 | Christopher Holton
    Jihadist organizations, including Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood, have infiltrated America and are carrying out successful influence operations directed at our government and media. Judging from the results, our media is both clueless and sympathetic to the Jihadists’ efforts and our government is so eaten up with political correctness that our elected officials seem powerless to do anything about what amount to enemy espionage and influence operations inside of the halls of power.

    Khalid Latif, a chaplain for New York University, here complains that moderate and peaceful understandings of Islam are being unfairly discounted: "As much as Muslims need to acknowledge the existence of a minority voice that is radicalized, so too does a broader society need to acknowledge the existence of a majority voice that is not radicalized and more importantly condemns radical thought." That's just great, and I am happy to accommodate him in this. It is also worth noting, however, that a few years ago, when NYU students planned to display the Danish cartoons of Muhammad at a campus event,...

    Next month, some of us will be commemorating the 72nd anniversary of Kristallnacht -- the Night of Broken Glass, as it is so vividly referred to. On the night of November 9, 1938, synagogues all over Germany were destroyed, the windows of Jewish-owned shops were smashed and the merchandise looted, Jewish schools and community institutions were laid to ruin, and Jewish residents were beaten, arrested, and sometimes killed. My family lived in the city of Breslau. I was seven years old and staying at my aunt's apartment. Late that afternoon, we heard a mob of singing and laughing merrymakers invading...
  • EDITORIAL: Islamic flag over the White House--Radical Muslims want America ruled by Shariah

    Islamists say the Koran is destined to rule America. In fact, the Muslim takeover of the White House is not just an unfolding action plan but a directive from Muhammad himself.In an interview Sunday on ABC's "This Week," British radical Muslim activist Anjem Choudary made clear what he and his Islamist brothers have planned for the West. "We do believe, as Muslims, the East and the West will one day be governed by the Shariah," he said. "Indeed, we believe that one day, the flag of Islam will fly over the White House." He then quoted a hadith, or...

    The Muslim world does not have to fire a single shot; the Western world is capitulating to the Islamists' every demand. Three recent events show the continuing and relentless interplay among Islamists worldwide. The latest assault is playing out in Spain. La Meca, a popular "discotheque in southern Spain, has agreed to change its name and architectural design" because of pressure from Islamic extremists, who find the name of the discotheque and its design "offensive and insulting to their religion." Like the Danish cartoon uproar in 2005 when Muslims took to the streets in outrage because the newspaper Jyllands-Posten published...

    The newly unveiled "official" architectural renderings of the Ground Zero Mosque, now being rebranded and sanitized as the "Park 51 Community Center" reveal a disturbing, insidious message. (Big hat tip: Pamela Geller, Atlas Shrugs) Look closely at the pattern of the facade. It is quite easy to discern the Star of David (two triangles with points up and down), the pre-eminent symbol of Judaism here: and here: But the entire facade shows these shapes dissolving, as if shattered and falling down. Kind of like a window shattered by rocks and fragmenting into pieces. New York City has the largest Jewish...

    The West, Islam and Sharia ^ | September 24, 2010 | Professor John Ellis
    The main argument against building the Park51 (Ground Zero) mosque adjacent to Ground Zero has been that its placement would be a lasting affront to the memory of the Americans who died at the hands of Muslim terrorists. And that argument is certainly sufficient by itself. But it is not the most important argument against a mosque in that location. To understand what is, we must remember what happened the last time we fought against suicide bombers, who, like their contemporary Muslim counterparts, were inspired by what they felt to be a divine mission. In the Second World War, Japanese...

    Diametrically opposed governmental reactions to recent Koran burning episodes are on display in Britain and the United States. The British reaction demonstrates the extent to which our "mother country" has retrogressed toward a full self-imposed dhimmitude of the non-Muslim majority under Sharia-based tenets dictated by its mainstream fundamentalist Muslim community -- despite the latter being a relatively small demographic minority. According to The Daily Mail, Six suspects were seized after allegedly torching the Muslim holy book in the backyard of a pub... Two men were arrested on suspicion of stirring racial hatred, and have since been released on bail. On...

In the Special Election to fill the final 2 years of Hillary Rodham Clinton's term, incumbent Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand and former Congressman Republican Joe DioGuardi today finish effectively even, with Gillibrand's nominal 1-point lead being within the survey's theoretical margin of sampling error.

    A Massachusetts public school district allowed middle school students to participate in a Muslim prayer during a school sanctioned field trip to a Mosque. From the letter/permission slip sent out to parents: “During our visit, we will get a chance to hear from Islam from members of the Cultural Center, learn about the architecture of a Mosque and observe a midday prayer service.” A concerned parent did a bit of investigation into this Mosque and found out some interesting facts about this Mosque. It is called the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center and is run by the Muslim American...

    Hudson New York ^ | September 20, 2010 | Herbert I. London
    Ignorant opinion is unquestionably on the rise; although there are dozens of examples daily that prove this claim, the most absurd of these examples, is the one employed by government officials, academics, and political candidates: "Islam is a religion of peace." People who know nothing about Islam agree that most Muslims do not commit violent or terrorist acts, therefore the religion is peacefull; but that is a classic non sequitur. Most Germans in the 1930's did not embrace the excesses of Nazism. Most Chinese did not subscribe to the slaughter of millions during Mao's Long March. Most Russians did not...

    Most people are familiar with a spoiled brat who throws a temper-tantrum anytime things don't go their way. This, in essence, is the path too many Muslims have taken in regards to both calls to move the ground zero mosque/Islamic Center and to the threat to burn Korans. Imam and slumlord Rauf, who came up with the idea to build an Islamic Center and mosque at ground zero, said, "My major concern with moving it is that the headline in the Muslim world will be Islam is under attack in America. "This will strengthen the radicals in the Muslim world,...

    Look what's crawling out from under the Rauf. Without his Albright résumé and subdued dhimmedia running interference, it is plain as day that this hustler, the renowned "moderate" Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf of the Park 51 Ground Zero mega-mosque initiative, is a lowlife. He has been exposed as a rat and vermin slumlord whose tenants live without basic services like hot water. He scammed New Jersey politicians and got taxpayer dollars for rehabilitation of his infested, dilapidated buildings in Union City and Palisades Park, but still his victimized tenants live in squalor. So where's the money? The New Jersey Record...

    You can't burn a Koran in a crowded theater, and Supreme CourtJustice Stephen Breyer suggests that to placate foreign extremists, Koran burning might be banned everywhere else in America too. In an interview aired Tuesday on ABC's "Good Morning America,"Justice Breyer, who is on tour promoting his new book, averred that in the Internet age, speech traditionally protected by the First Amendment may have to be weighed against its global impact. George Stephanopoulos asked the justice about the canceled Sept. 11 Koran burning proposed by Pastor Terry Jones, and whether the fact that people riot in Afghanistan over what happens...

He’s offering to buy out some of the Muslim investors in the property they want to build the Ground Zero Victory Mosque on. He’s offering 25% above the actual value of the land. The Muslims will refuse, because the front company Islam setup for this conquest monument, Cordoba House,...

    We have to fight them, because their radical imams, mosques, and schools threaten us; they constitute an assembly line for the next generation of home-grown American jihadi killers. But we canÂ’t ask the courts to silence them, because we want to maintain our 1st Amendment rights. How, then, do we fight? There are three basic lines of attack. The first is to openly contest their odious doctrines and practices. As Manda Ervin said here yesterday, speaking in the name of Muslim women: We want America to treat Islam like it treats Christianity and Judaism, and to stop exempting Muslims from...

Here’s what I ping-ponged back and forth on Friday: Should I write about James Lee, the whiny and pathetic wannabe mass murderer? Y’know Mr. Lee, don’t ‘cha? He’s the radical pro-abortion, Al Gore ogling tree humper who got thumped by SWAT after grabbing hostages at the Discovery Channel.
