    In a celebratory infographic posted online, the Islamic State is claiming major victory in killing and injuring up to 5,200 people over the holy month of Ramadan. The infographic, lauding the "results" of a bloodthirsty Ramadan, published by ISIS’ Al Naba weekly magazine notes the 14 terror attacks around the globe attributed to ISIS including the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida and the Dhaka, Bangladesh bakery attack. They also mention the Magnanville, France stabbing of a police officer and his wife and a suicide bomb attack that killed 14 Nepalese soldiers who worked at the Canadian Embassy in Kabul,...

    The iconic American children's book character Curious George is celebrating Ramadan in one of the latest books from the 75-year-old series.It's Ramadan, Curious George was written by Pakistani-American Muslim author Hena Khan who stated she was glad the book was released during this contentious election season, particularly with Donald Trump's call for a ban on Muslim immigration. "There's a very dangerous narrative being spread about Muslims and inaccurate things being said," Khan said. "[The book] comes at the right time in terms of trying to promote understanding and tolerance." Khan has already written two children's books about Islam, according to...

    It was the last day of Camp Ramadan, and a sea of smiling parents had their arms outstretched, holding up more than a dozen cellphones to capture all of the song and dance and children's humor contained in the end-of-camp assembly. And onstage, a normally polite and bookish 11-year-old was channeling Donald Trump. "As a leader, who do you wish to serve?" a child, playing the role of debate interviewer, asked the boy's character — a certain political candidate with the alias of Ronald McDonald. "I wish to serve my very fantastic self," answered Amir-Abbas, 11, provoking peals of laughter...

    The call came in late May, just weeks before Ramadan began: ISIS told supporters to make the Holy period 'with God’s permission, a month of pain for infidels everywhere'. That call has turned what should have been four weeks of peace and charitable giving into a bloodbath which has spread from Florida to the Philippines, leaving more than 800 dead at the hands of Islamic State's supporters across the globe. Extremists have killed people as they sat with friends in a cafe in Bangladesh, executed Syrian families for trying to flee their clutches and stabbed a policeman to death in...

    On Thursday, when talking about the terrorist atrocity in Orlando in that city, President Obama acknowledged that Omar Mateen’s spree and the San Bernardino murders in December stemmed from the same root. But that root isn’t ISIS or jihad. The root is “derangement.” These were “carried out, it appears, not by external plotters, not by vast networks or sophisticated cells but deranged individuals warped by the hateful propaganda that they’d seen over the internet.” The president could have placed Sunday’s attack in a different context — the context not only of San Bernardino but of the slaughter at the Bataclan...

    It was the worst mass shooting ever on American soil: Omar Mateen, 29, opened fire at the Pulse, an Orlando, Florida gay nightclub, on Saturday night. Mateen murdered at least fifty people and wounded another 53. The death count is almost certain to go higher, as many are quite gravely wounded. Mateen was a Muslim who had pledged allegiance to the Islamic State and mentioned the Boston Marathon jihad killers in a 911 call just before he started shooting. Thus in the wake of the jihad massacre, it was time for the Leftist political and media elites to do what...

    The United West investigative team uncovered a story so disturbing Field Sutton of Channel 9 news in Orlando, FL broke the story on their newscast.

    TAMPA, FLORIDA — President Barack Obama’s immediate leveraging of the atrocious Islamic terror attack in Orlando toward new gun control reforms may be predictable — yet the circumstances involving the professional background of Omar S. Mateen could prove a breaking point for his fellow anti-gun activists. As the debate eventually moves toward the Second Amendment, activists must answer how the most prevalent mass shooter in American history cleared background checks, medical examination, registration and dozens of hours of mandated training.
