    Fresh protests are taking place around the Muslim world over an amateur anti-Islam video produced in the US. At least one protester was killed in violent protests in Pakistan and thousands attended an angry rally in the Philippines city of Marawi. Weapons were fired and police cars torched in the Afghan capital, Kabul. The leader of Lebanon's Hezbollah has said the US faces "very dangerous" repercussions if it allows the full video to be released. In a rare public appearance, Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah told a rally in the capital Beirut that the world did not understand the "breadth of the...

"I think this is the time to expose the real nature of Islam," said Yousef to reporters gathered. "Islam is a religion of war and most Muslims don't understand the true nature of Islam. This is the time and I would like to announce...

That would put it right next door to the planned Cordoba Mosque. Gutfeld hosts the Fox News show “Red Eye” and is known as being a satirist. But this time, he claims to be serious. He has apparently looked into the space and has already obtained investors.

    The Islamist rulers of the Gaza Strip have ordered lingerie shops to display more modesty. A week after banning women from smoking water pipes in public places, the Hamas-run police force has told stores selling women's underwear to remove scantily-clad mannequins and any posters of racy undergarments. "These measures have stemmed from complaints and pressure by ordinary people. They have to do with upholding our traditions," police spokesman Ayman Al-Batniji said Wednesday. Hamas leaders have repeatedly denied any intention to impose Islamic law on the Gaza Strip, home to 1.5 million Palestinians. But Hamas police have broken up a hip-hop...

    SYDNEY – An Australian restaurant that refused a blind man entry because a waiter thought his seeing-eye dog was "gay" has been ordered to apologize and pay compensation. Ian Jolly was told he could not take guide dog Nudge into Adelaide's Thai Spice last May because a member of staff objected, The Sunday Mail reported. The restaurant's owners said a misunderstanding had arisen between Jolly's female companion and a waiter, who understood the woman "to be saying she wanted to bring a gay dog into the restaurant". "The staff genuinely believed that Nudge was an ordinary pet dog which had...

    STOCKHOLM (AP) -- A Swedish artist who angered Muslims by drawing the Prophet Muhammad with the body of a dog said Wednesday he has no regrets and believes the suspects in an alleged plot to kill him were not professionals. Lars Vilks, who has faced numerous death threats over the controversial cartoon, said he has built his own defense system, including a "homemade" safe room and a barbed-wire sculpture that could electrocute potential intruders. He said he also has an ax "to chop down" anyone trying to climb through the windows of his home in southern Sweden.

    A New York Post cartoon that appears to link President Obama to a violent chimpanzee drew criticism Wednesday on media Web sites and from civil rights activist the Rev. Al Sharpton. The cartoon in Wednesday's Post by Sean Delonas shows a dead chimp and two police officers, one with a smoking gun. The caption reads, “They'll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill.'' The cartoon refers to Travis the chimp, who was shot to death by police in Stamford, Conn. on Monday after it mauled a friend of its owner. It links the chimp to Obama,...

    I was wondering if people would be interested in some photos from the GOP Convention and all the moonbats on parade. I figure since I'm forced to enter the fray just to get to work, I may as well get some pics of the moonbats on "Peace Island" (Cowleen Rowley's little makebelieve world of unicorns and moonbeams) and other similar nuttery. Maybe I can find a new replacement Anglo-European version of Rage Boy in the process.

    Evening Standard (UK) ^ | 2/6/2008 | Unattributed
    The Government has drawn up a controversial phrasebook on the language of terrorism and is insisting civil servants no longer blame fanatical extremism on Islam, for fear of upsetting the Muslim community. The new counter-terrorism guidelines suggest that phrases such as "Islamic terrorist" and "jihadi fundamentalism" are too inflammatory and imply that all Muslims explicitly are responsible for extremism. Instead the leaked Home Office document advises Whitehall bosses that they refer to violent extremism and criminal murderers or thugs to avoid any link between Islam and terrorism. However, the war on terror handbook has provoked an unfavourable response from people...

    The exiled leader of Hamas said Tuesday that Israel's Gaza Strip operation which left 18 Palestinians dead, including the son of a senior Hamas leader, was the fruit of US President George W. Bush's visit to the Middle East region. Khaled Mashaal, in an interview with The Associated Press in Damascus where he lives, accused Bush of inciting Israeli leaders. "This crime is the ugly fruit of Bush's visit to the region. He has incited the Zionists and has exerted pressure on the Palestinian side to become more hardline against Palestinian dialogue," he said during the interview in his office....

    Don't you hate Islamic Rage Boy? 'MoBlows', writing on the Jihad Watch website, certainly does. "I just want to put my fist down his throat," he says. The 'boy' in question rose to prominence earlier this year when he was photographed at a demonstration in Srinagar, capital of Indian-administered Kashmir. Later, he was spotted waving his fist at another camera during a protest against the awarding of a knighthood to author Salman Rushdie. With his straggly beard and big shouting mouth, Rage Boy certainly looks like a threat. His scary face now appears on boxer shorts and bumper stickers, and...

    NORTH America's political columnist, Christopher Hitchens is telling the world+dog that the Everywhere Girl has been replaced by "Islamic Rage Boy". Islamic Rage Boy is a stock photo of a Kashmiri-based rent-a-protester who seems to be protesting at everything which moves. According to Hitchen's Slate column, IRB has been seen protesting Danish cartoons, magazine photos of a Muslim Mosque, a visit to India by President Bush, comments by the Pope, execution of a Muslim terrorist by India and Israeli military action. In other words when big media needs a picture of a stereotyped mad mullah to satisfy the prejudices about...
