    Canadian authorities identified the gunman in the deadly shooting Wednesday of a soldier guarding the National War Memorial in Ottawa as Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, a Canadian born in 1982. The episode was the latest in a growing list of attacks in the West by individuals who have professed their affinity for radical Islam or sympathy to militant ideology.

    In an email to Global Okanagan, the Islamic Centre of Kelowna condemns the attack saying the incident has nothing to do with the Muslim faith. “I can understand and appreciate often people’s feelings that: ‘Oh we need to defend Islam again’ whereas I would rather express my feelings a bit differently,” says spokesman, Hamid Butt. “We don’t have to defend Islam rather our focus should be to educate (the) community at large that these types of incidents are sad indeed and has nothing to do with Islam.” Butt says he feels that Muslims are being singled out and misrepresented in...

    Remember this the next time you see a report by Ayman Mohyeldin. The man NBC sends to report on doings in Muslim countries around the world is unwilling to say which extremism—Christian, Jewish or Muslim—poses the greatest current threat to civilization. When Joe Scarborough posed that very question to the NBC reporter on today's Morning Joe, Mohyeldin punted. Instead of talking about current threats, Mohyeldin reached back almost 1,000 years, countering with talk of the Crusades. View the video here.

    With Obama MIA in almost 60 percent of his PDB, where is he getting his information? Aside from the Arabs, who would back him 100 percent, Western leaders signing up for the ragtag coalition to take on ISIS, should be asked by their masses why they would send soldiers into a battle led by a pretend general who plays AWOL at 60 percent of his intelligence sessions. For whatever his reasons, President Barack Obama has blundered into the mideast war with no intel in his strategy arsenal.

    In a nationally televised speech on Wednesday, September 10, Barack Obama announced a four-part plan for dealing with the terrorist organization, ISIS. Here are the four parts of his plan: 1. A systematic campaign of airstrikes against terrorists. 2. Increased support for forces fighting terrorists on the ground. 3. Draw on substantial counterterrorism capabilities to prevent ISIS attacks. And finally, 4. Provide humanitarian assistance to civilians who've been displaced by ISIS terrorism. Does his plan have any chance of success? No. Airpower alone will not defeat ISIS. To defeat ISIS it will be necessary to take and hold ground and...

    Threat of Islamic terrorism is not confined to any one country. Radical Islam is becoming more of a problem in this country President Obama and other politicians are fond of reminding Americans that Islam is a “religion of peace.” Unfortunately, that message is not getting across to the millions of Muslims that adhere to a radical branch of Islam that considers non-believers to be infidels worthy of death. Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy and other experts estimate that 15% of the 1.6 billion Muslims worldwide believe in this violent form of Islam. This means there are approximately...

    Townhall.com ^ | September 22, 2014 | Jeff Jacoby
    ISLAMIC STATE has made the beheading of victims a key element in its campaign of terror and conquest. Most conspicuous in recent weeks have been the murders of Westerners James Foley, Steven Sotloff, and David Haines, whose severed heads and decapitated bodies have been shown in threatening videos produced by the jihadists. In the years since 9/11, other Islamist terrorist groups have circulated equally ghastly beheading videos. Among the earlier victims were journalist Daniel Pearl, businessman Nicholas Berg, and construction contractors Jack Hensley and Eugene Armstrong — all Americans beheaded by Al Qaeda.Last week, meanwhile, Australian police arrested 15 suspects...
  • ISIS's Latest Video Shows The Group 'Fears Isolation And Attack' From US

    Dave Clark, AFPSeptember 19, 2014 A dramatic change of tone in the latest hostage video released by the Islamic State has convinced experts that the jihadist group is isolated and fearful of a US assault. Where three previous clips ended with a masked militant slitting the throat of a kneeling hostage, the new release Thursday -- a teaser trailer for a promised series of documentaries -- takes a different tack. The hostage, British photojournalist John Cantlie, sits behind a desk and in a measured tone makes the case for Western powers to drop the threat of military intervention against his...

The jihadist tweeted: "You could literally search for soldiers, find their town, photos of them, look for addresses in Yellowbook or something. Then show up and slaughter them."

    Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and his aides swear the Syrian “rebels” he was pictured last year with weren’t ISIS members or supporters, and the mainstream media is by and large buying the 2008 GOP presidential nominee’s story. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has endured brutal criticism—media fact checkers, reporters, and political figures have shredded him—for questioning just who McCain posed with. But a closer look at the situation tells perhaps a different story than McCain’s office or the mainstream media have pushed. The criticism of McCain centers around how the Arizona senator met with Syrian rebel leaders in May 2013 when...

"But today, they are learning the same hard lesson of petty tyrants and terrorists who have gone before: As Americans, we do not give in to fear. When you harm our citizens, when you threaten the United States, when you threaten our allies, it doesn't frighten us. It unites us." The question now appears to be not if, but when, the United States will strike ISIS in its stronghold in northern Syria. The...

    Four American noncombatants have been beheaded by Islamic fanatics, and the videos of their murders brazenly circulated over the internet for the world to witness. Another Westerner – David Cawthorne Haines, a security expert hired by international aid organizations – faces the same gruesome fate. Why do they behead us? The question goes to the method, not the motive, of the madness. Murderers’ motives don’t matter much in the Middle East. In local eyes, there are so many causes to kill for, and so many victims deserving death. But assuming one is inclined to butcher, why do so by the...

You’ve likely already made the connection between ginger hair and home-grown Islamic radicals yourself. Subconsciously, perhaps, from newspaper reports showing carrot-topped wannabe jihadis from Bradford, and TV clips of auburn brothers in east London. What you probably don’t know is just how vastly over-represented redheads are in the ranks of Islamist converts. There are no surveys...

    ISIL and ISIS literally stands for "Islamic State" but the current President of the United States doesn't think they're "Islamic." "ISIL is not Islamic," Obama said in his speech Wednesday night about ISIL [ISIS]. "No religion condones the killing if innocents. The vast majority of ISIL victims have been Muslim and ISIL is certainly not a state." By this logic, Islamic State terrorists who kill Muslims because they aren't radical enough or the proper type of Muslim, aren't "Islamic." Obama's asinine statement comes just a few weeks after two American journalists had their heads sawed off in the name of...

Perhaps they had already forgotten the decapitation of Wall Street Journal journalist, Daniel Pearl in 2002. Most certainly, the memory of the murder of nearly 3,000 on September 11, 2001, with the destruction of the World Trade Towers has begun to recede. What most do not know is that decapitation is a requirement in the Islamic holy war and holy book, the Koran.

In each case, the governing bodies were infiltrated by radicals who then set about pushing out moderate teachers and implementing radical Islam. Today's report makes clear that the allegations...

Ali, who was born in Somalia explains perfectly why the transformation from the so-called ‘peaceful’ brand of Islam into the more violent strain is as reliable as a chemical formula. It all ends the same way. As peaceful men assemble to listen to well-intentioned, peaceful Muslim preachers, evil and hatred creeps in. This happens not because these preachers start out wanting to go...

    What, in hindsight, can be only described as an obtuse and extremely wrong statement, former President Bill Clinton stated in 2013 that the terrorist organization Boko Haram acts out of poverty, not because of religious fever. Mr. Clinton not only stated that poverty was the cause, but that specifically, Islam and religion could not be blamed in any way. “You have to somehow bring economic opportunity to the people who don’t have it," Clinton stated. He added, "You have all these political problems — and now violence problems — that appear to be rooted in religious differences and all the...

    PC: According to NBC News, the Justice Department will soon prohibit religious profiling in terror cases. The move, if true, would completely blind federal law enforcement to the threat from Islamic extremism. Already, the department has forced the FBI to bleach references to "Islam" and "jihad" from its counterterrorism training materials. It's also made it harder for agents to infiltrate radical mosques. But Attorney General Eric Holder reportedly now wants to make it illegal for agents to even consider religion in their investigations. Democrats on the Hill are cheering the changes, along with the ACLU and radical Muslim Brotherhood front...
  • The Jewish Relationship with Christmas

    Christmas day is usually a pretty quiet affair for Jewish people. Most spend it as a day to relax and catch up, watch movies, go to friends, eat Chinese food, have family over or just simply listen to Christmas music and read the ads for the after-Christmas sales. I seem to find myself in a rather introspective mood this Yuletide season. Perhaps it is age creeping upon me, but I question the most basic issues, actually non-issues, and I can’t find answers. Perhaps others can supply the information I seek. First and foremost why is it that Christmas songs are...

    Now, at first I thought this was a hoax But it appears it isn’t. Apparently a fellow writing into a Jihadi chat show, wants to do “martyrdom operations.” The sheikh he talked to says they’ve got a great new technique to blow up infidels. We hide explosives up your butt. There’s just one hitch. You’ve got to be repeatedly sodomized in order to be able to accommodate the explosive. So, the questioner wants to know if it is permissible for him to be regularly rogered, if doing so makes his posterior more amenable to hiding explosives. The fellow on camera, Shiite cleric Abdallah Al-Khilaf, says that...

    Bill de Blasio has appointed his transition committee and it includes Imam Khalid Latif. Latif is one of the cleaner faces of CAIR. He was a chaplain at Princeton and now NYU. Bloomberg appointed him to be a police chaplain and he’s won interfaith awards.He’s young enough and savvy enough to play the moderate role really well. You won’t catch him shouting “Death to America” or “We are all Osama” when the cameras are off. And his presence as a CAIR board member will be overlooked by most. In 2006, when deadly protests broke out in the Muslim world...

    An Orange County man who had fought with Syrian rebels against the Assad regime was arrested Friday morning as he tried to leave the U.S. with a fake passport to fight for al Qaeda against U.S. soldiers overseas, said authorities. Twenty-four-year-old Sinh Vinh Ngo Nguyen of Garden Grove, also known as Hasan Abu Omar Ghannoum, was stopped at a bus station in Santa Ana, Calif. at 7:30 a.m. by members of the Los Angeles Joint Terrorism Task Force and arrested on suspicion of providing material support to al Qaeda.

    In his article “Gulf between perception and reality of Muslims” (Oct.3), Aijaz Zaka Syed has once again echoed the feelings of all Muslims around the globe who feel bad about the way the entire community is being blamed for the wrongdoings of a few, who in the name of Islam are wreaking havoc around the world and giving a bad name to Islam and Muslims at large. It is sad to hear and read reports about killings and violence perpetrated by deviant groups who claim to be waging a “holy war.” The writer has rightly stressed that the word Islam...
