There are extremists in the Jewish tradition, the Christian tradition and yes the Islamic tradition. But this is a very small percentage of the people who practice it, and unfortunately they get...

    Refugee Resettlement Watch ^ | Jan 8, 2017 | Ann Corcoran
    This is direct confirmation from a resettlement contractor in Rochester, NY that indeed the pipeline of refugees headed to America is packed to overflowing and that local resettlement agencies are struggling to cope with the numbers. Of course this means that refugees will suffer as will local communities, governments/school systems that must adjust to rapid cultural and demographic change (in addition to shelling-out for taxpayer-funded expenses for schooling etc.). On January 20th, Donald Trump could simply turn off the spigot, and if he does there will be howls of rage by contractors who say he is mean and hateful as...

    "A district spokesman told the site officials consulted with an attorney about the World Hijab Day event, and were advised that 'there would be more of a legal issue if the school said no to the event' than to hold lessons on the Muslim scarf." Really? What kind of a legal issue? Would the school be brought up on charges of "Islamophobia"? Is that trumped-up propaganda term a crime now? School board president Van Henri White said of the Hijab Day organizer, student Eman Muthana: "She's not trying to make anybody else anything other than who they are, but she...
