    The Commentator ^ | 03/29/2015 | Christian Whiton
    In the dangerous last two years of Obama's presidency, things could go from bad to worse. His allies are now backing a pro-Sharia populist in Nigeria's presidential election, with potentially disastrous results On Saturday, Nigerians will go to the polls to choose their president. The race pits an incumbent with an imperfect record against a former military dictator who has flirted with Islamism. As with the recent election in Israel, alumni of Obama are aiding the challenger -- and not because he would make the region safer. The decision Nigerians will make this weekend matters greatly, both for themselves and...

    Two cartoonists for the popular satirical weekly Penguen have been jailed to 11 months in prison, over a satirical piece on free speech in which they were convicted of including a hidden gesture “insulting” Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. Cartoonists Bahadır Baruter and Özer Aydoğan were sued for the Aug. 21, 2014, cover of the magazine, which satirized Erdoğan’s election as Turkey’s president. In the drawing, Erdoğan is seen asking whether officials at the new presidential palace in Ankara have prepared “any journalists to slaughter,” referring to ritual sacrifice in Islam, to mark his inauguration. Soon after the publication, a...

    When the notorious Islamic terrorist group, Boko Haram, kidnapped 278 school girls [1] from the town of Chibok in northeastern Nigeria last year, Michelle Obama began a Twitter hashtag campaign [2], #BringBackOurGirls. But behind the scenes, the Obama administration was undermining Nigeria’s efforts to take the battle to the terrorists. Obama refused to sell Nigeria arms and supplies critical to the fight, and stepped in to block other Western allies from doing so. The administration also denied Nigeria intelligence [3] on Boko Haram from drones operating in the area. While Boko Haram was kidnapping school girls, the U.S. cut petroleum...

Van Duyne’s name and picture has popped up on Facebook pages and Twitter feeds across America in recent days, casting her with equal enthusiasm as villain or hero, depending on one’s political outlook.

The Italian Jesuit-run magazine La Civiltŕ Cattolica stressed that newly published documents “prove how the Holy See, always informed about events, had not remained passive, but was strongly committed to face the issue” of the Armenian Genocide. “Benedict XV was the only ruler or religious leader to voice out a protest against the ‘massive crime’.”...

The dispute has made Mayor Beth Van Duyne a hero among a fringe movement that believes Muslims — a tiny fraction of the U.S. population — are plotting to take over American culture and courts. “It fuels anti-Islamic hysteria,” said Zia Sheikh, the Islamic Center of Irving’s imam. “Her whole point was to rile...

Nearly all bill sponsors have admitted these bills are designed to attack the religious principles of Islam or target Muslim communities. For the past five years CAIR has witnessed a trend of state level support for legislation known as "anti-foreign law" or "American Laws for American Courts." Previously, supporters of anti-foreign laws sought to make following the religious...

Here are our take-aways from Wood’s 10,000 word article.   According to Wood: 1. ISIS and al-Qaeda are not one and the same. ISIS has eclipsed al-Qaeda and views its leaders as apostates. We have made a mistake in not realizing the difference...

    Can better urban planning help prevent terrorist attacks? The idea sounds fanciful, even disrespectful to victims of extremist violence. But officials in Paris, still reeling from last month’s deadly terrorist attacks on a satirical magazine and a kosher deli, are putting some hope in a plan to re-zone the city and annex the notorious inner suburbs, or banlieues, where the terror plot was born. In what would be perhaps the greatest redesign of Paris since Baron Haussmann laid out its famed boulevards in the mid-19th Century, the “Métropole du Grand Paris” would attempt to bring the poor, heavily immigrant neighborhoods...

    It appears that Islam Web, a popular website owned by Qatar’s Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs, may have been responsible for the rationale used by the Islamic State to burn alive a Jordanian pilot captive. On February 7, 2006, the widely accessed Arabic website issued Fatwa No. 71480, titled “The Burning of Ias bin Abdul Yalil by Abu Bakr.” The fatwa, or Islamic decree, concluded that burning people as a form of punishment is permissible. Ironically, hours after the Islamic State burned the pilot alive, Fatwa No. 71480 was removed from Islam Web. What is interesting to note is...

    North Texas is now home to the first official Islamic Tribunal in the U.S. Comprised of four judges, the Islamic Tribunal follows Sharia Law, a Muslim religious moral code that settles disputes in many countries in the Middle East.

[…] Tribunal judge Dr. Taher El-badawi says that the tribunal will not handle cases involving criminal law, child support, custody battles, or transfers of assets. But...

    4-Star Admiral Lyons Slams Obama (VIDEO): Muslim Brotherhood Infiltrated All Of Our National Security Agencies Today in America, Muslims spread to every state in our Union. Since 1991 with only 100,000 Muslims, they featured less than 300 mosques. Today, in 2015 with seven million followers, Muslims own 2,200 mosques and growing. In those buildings, they preach Sharia and the tenants of Islam. They brain wash their followers, their children and their women. They intend to extend their power and grasp with each mosque as they create caliphates (their own cities) within our country. What can we expect in America? In...

    I was so much hoping to get a Q&A lined up with Rep. Jeff Leach of Plano on the subject of Sharia Law in Texas. He’s got a bill that would prohibit family court rulings based on foreign legal codes if that violated our own constitutional protections. These kinds of bills and state constitutional amendments have popped in several states and have been adopted in a bunch. They’re widely accepted as trying to keep the Islamic legal code at bay. A story in the Houston Chronicle mentioned Leach’s bill in its coverage of the anti-Muslim furor at the Capitol last...

    The aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo massacre has confirmed something widely suspected: this country’s elites have no interest in defeating terrorism. Out of the 17 people murdered by Jihadi thugs in Paris, four were cops and four were innocent passersby who happened to be in a kosher shop at the wrong moment. But the other nine were perfect examples of 21st-century postmodern secular elites. Sophisticated, skeptical, well-educated, and well-to-do bohos working in media whose response to anything at all was a combination of aloofness, impudence, and irony. In this they were representative of their generation -- essentially French versions of...

    Obama Cooperates With Grandson of Muslim Brotherhood Founder, Ramadan Exhorts COLONIZING U.S./Canada FBO Islam! Commentary By Adina Kutnicki by Adina Kutnicki AS always, one can count on the (w)academic community - intellectual "acanemics" - to propagate the most outrageous falsehoods, all in order to push through their ideological objectives. In fact, historical truth is as valued as soiled toilet paper. INHERENTLY, anti-American/anti-western profs lend "intellectual" cover to Islamic supremacists/jihadists. Dangerous reprobates. BUT when you factor in enumerable Islamists educated in the west, the landscape becomes even more ominous. Deadly. IN this regard, they selectively bare their Islamic fangs before certain...

    Seattle: Muslims demand teacher be fired for showing Muhammad cartoons SeattleReWaprotestAnd they may get it, as well. Is this America? The surrender to Sharia norms and collapse of a general understanding of the value of the freedom of speech is happening so rapidly, it’s extraordinary. “Somali protestors demand teacher resign over Mohammed cartoons,” by Alex Stonehill and Alex Garland, Seattle Globalist, February 1, 2015 (thanks to Refugee Resettlement Watch): Controversy over cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed hit home in Seattle recently, culminating in a protest outside of southend refugee service provider on Friday. A group of Somali Americans gathered outside...

    [1]Thursday was Hijab Day at NP3 High School (Natomas Pacific Pathways Prep), a public charter school in Sacramento, California. Predictably, the school responded to concerns over why a public school would be hosting such an event with charges that critics were motivated by “hatred” and “bigotry.” The whole episode became an illustration of how Islamic supremacists are manipulating politically correct, multiculturalist pieties to advance their agenda.It all started when a Jihad Watch reader in the Sacramento area who is very close to NP3 High School sent me the flier for the day, which read: NP3 Hijab DayJanuary 28, 2015...

    Students from Houston Quran Academy sing the national anthem at the Texas Capitol. Condemnation of the anti-Muslim rage at the Capitol on Thursday was fairly widespread among the media, elected officials and other members of the political mainstream. House Speaker Joe Straus put out a statement saying, in part, “legislators have a responsibility to treat all visitors just as we expect to be treated—with dignity and respect.” The Dallas Morning News editorialized that the “disgusting spectacle at the state Capitol and Rep. Molly White’s ignorant Facebook babble make you embarrassed to be Texan.” Even Rep. Jeff Leach (R-Plano), a Christian...

    The new Sharia tribunal in Texas is all “voluntary,” you see, so there is absolutely nothing for you Infidels to be worried about. The only catch is that we have seen how those “voluntary” tribunals worked out in Britain. “‘Voluntary’ Sharia Tribunal in Texas: This Is How It Starts,” by Pamela Geller, Breitbart, January 28, 2015: Breitbart Texas confirmed Tuesday that “an Islamic Tribunal using Sharia law” is indeed operating in Texas. But not to worry: an attorney for the tribunal assures us that participation is “voluntary,” and one of the Sharia judges, Dr. Taher El-badawi, says it’s devoted only...

    Saudi Preacher Fayhan al-Ghamdi Released After Raping and Killing Daughter Because he 'Doubted her Virginity' A Saudi preacher accused of raping, torturing and killing his five-year-old daughter, has reportedly been released from custody after agreeing to pay "blood money". Fayhan al-Ghamdi was sentenced to eight years in prison and 800 lashes in 2013. The court also ordered al-Ghamdi to pay his ex-wife, the girl's mother, one million riyals ($270,000) in "blood money". According to some reports, al-Ghamdi had suspected his daughter had lost her virginity and had tortured her accordingly. Al-Ghamdi's daughter Lama suffered multiple injuries including a crushed skull,...
