    A student at McGill University in Montreal, Canada was forced to issue a formal apology for emailing a picture of President Obama kicking open a door–all because some students thought the image was somehow racist. Another student issued a formal complaint against Farnan for committing a “micro-aggression.” For those not up-to-date on the PC lexicon, “micro-aggression” is the latest phrase of choice for leftist radicals seeking to blame racism for common annoyances suffered by people of all races. Minority activists at the University of Michigan, for example, have insisted that trivial slights, such as “Having your opinion second-guessed in a...

    A Washington IRS attorney named Carter Hull closely oversaw the targeting of conservative nonprofit groups and suggested questions that IRS employees could ask of conservative and Tea Party groups applying for tax-exempt nonprofit status, according to interviews that two IRS employees gave with congressional investigators. “I was essentially a front person, because I had no autonomy or no authority to act on [applications] without Carter Hull’s influence or input,” said Elizabeth Hofacre, an employee of the Cincinnati IRS office, according to a new report in the Wall Street Journal.

The point was that thanks to the bitter primary battle between the Clintons and Obama, Democrats had already developed the most effective lines of attack against Obama, and Republicans needed only to nod their heads in agreement.

Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, expects a letter from President Obama in a few days guaranteeing the details of the agreement, arrived at recently during secret negotiations in Doha, Qatar.

Barack Obama may regret saying this comment in a stimulus pep rally in 2009.

    Christians and Muslims have been kept apart for over 1,300 years, because they were taught that irreconcilable differences exist between their religious beliefs. This has resulted in mutual distrust, persecution, and even wars. I was motivated to read the Qur’an by the events of September 11th, 2001. I wanted to know the teachings in the Qur’an that could convince Muslims to be willing to sacrifice their lives, in order to kill persons who did not appear to be associated with Islam or their conflict. My Christian tradition was the source of some anxiety, since I had been taught that “the...

Fourteen percent of Republicans, 10 percent of Democrats and 8 percent of independents mistakenly think he is Muslim, according to a survey by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center.

Paul, a congressman from south Texas, also proposes ending "birthright citizenship," which allows the children of Middle Eastern and other illegal immigrants to stay in America.

    The Council on American- Islamic Relations (CAIR) today applauded efforts by federal law enforcement authorities that apparently thwarted a planned attack on Fort Dix in New Jersey. In a statement, the Washington-based Islamic civil rights and advocacy group said: "Based on the information gathered in this case, it seems clear that a potentially deadly attack has been averted. We applaud the FBI for its efforts and repeat the American Muslim community's condemnation and repudiation of all those who would plan or carry out acts of terror while falsely claiming their actions have religious justification. "We continue to urge American Muslims...

    Muslims say when booking a flight, they feel everyone is watching them. Recently six Muslim Imams were removed from a flight in Minneapolis, sparking the national debate: is there such an issue as "flying while Muslim", racially profiling Muslims after 9-11, or is it just prudent? Toledo area Muslims are aware of the controversy and many say they are deeply offended by it. Here is what happened: six Imams were traveling from the Minneapolis - St. Paul airport. Police say the men where praying in the airport terminal. Some witnesses said they were praying loudly. Passengers became concerned with the...

    Saudi Arabia has long been known for its discretion and its subtle approach to diplomacy. As the home of Islam and Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques a certain amount of detached nobility was expected from Saudi Arabia in its diplomacy. Over recent months we have seen that Saudi Arabia's nonpartisan detachment and its trusted dignity could be put to use also in a more active diplomacy-to great success. It is this development and the failed Middle Eastern policy of the Western world that have persuaded me to try to brush a picture of Saudi Arabia's policy today and over...

    Faith and Politics By Joel Mowbray The Washington Times February 7, 2007 Less than two weeks after Sen. Barbara Boxer very publicly rebuffed the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the high-profile Muslim organization scored a surprising victory courtesy of a different leading California Democrat, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. When Mrs. Boxer rescinded an award that her office had given to a CAIR official, she cited the group's terrorist ties and its inability to condemn Islamic terrorist organizations. Faced with the same public record, Mrs. Pelosi weeks afterward decided to place a freshman congressman who was heavily backed by CAIR on...

    Jerusalem ( ) - Images from southern Lebanon -- television footage of dead children being pulled from the rubble of a bombed-out building -- show that Israel's military effort to stop unprovoked attacks on its own civilians and soldiers is working to the terrorists' advantage. Fury erupted around the world on Sunday, particularly in Lebanon, after Israel bombed what it believed to be a missile-launching site in southern Lebanon -- but killed around 57 people, many of them children, in the process. Overlooked in some of the media coverage was the fact that another150 rockets were launched at Israel's civilian...

    25 Years (1982-2007) to BBC (war) Crimes on Israel (Images war)'Victimhood' as a cult, as a pretext to mass murder & Jihadi-fascistic promotion We are all so used to the usual song by Arabists & Islamists propagandists, that it´s their ''victimhood'' that ''makes'' them terrorists. There is only the fundamental problem, their fundamentalism that is, their Jihadi-fascistic ideology on the 'infidels' has nothing to do with what the west does or does not do, though images, especially their tactics to bring about collateral damage & ultimately to those desired (by them) graphic photos of injured Arab kids so that they...

    The New York Times published a photograph of a young Pakistani boy recently standing with an old man next to an ancient, unfired artillery shell. It placed a caption under it that read: “Pakistani men with the remains of a missile fired at a house in the Bajur tribal zone near the Afghan border.” A short time later, the newspaper changed the caption to: “Correction: A picture caption on Saturday with an article about a U.S. airstrike on a village in Pakistan misidentified an unexploded ordinance. It was not the remains of a missile fired at a house.” The photograph...
