    The Daily Signal foreign correspondent Nolan Peterson recently visited the Kurdish peshmerga’s front line positions surrounding the Islamic State stronghold of Mosul—Iraq’s second biggest city. The peshmerga, which translates to “one who faces death,” are an ally of Operation Inherent Resolve, the U.S.-led international coalition combatting Islamic State, the terrorist army also known as ISIS. Kurdish commanders say the U.S.-led airstrikes have been a game changer, degrading their enemy and boosting the Kurds’ morale. And despite a lack of heavy weapons and ammunition, the peshmerga soldiers are determined to keep fighting.

    Islam is not just a religion, or a form of government. It is a complete system, encompassing religious, legal, political, economic and military components, with each being utilized as required. “Muslims” are those that follow the Islamic doctrine. Islamic domination occurs when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their so-called “religious rights.” When politically correct and culturally diverse societies, such as ours, agree to seemingly reasonable Muslim demands for their religious liberties, they are subsequently enforced on the remainder of the population through the use of their political and military components. Dr. Peter Hammond, in his...

    #37 Given the altitude and airspeed at the point of disappearance the plane, or parts of it, will likely be quite some distance south east of the last know location, which could be in shallower parts of the Med. Discarding the usual creative but pointless theories, all we know with any degree of certainty is that the plane disappeared suddenly at cruising altitude (or thereabouts) having just entered Egyptian airspace. The rapidity of the event suggests some kind of very sudden 'mechanical' failure - cause unknown. Realistically there are only two broad possibilities; explosive device or a sudden mechanical/structural/engine-type failure....

    CAIRO — In an eerie coincidence, the EgyptAir jetliner that plunged into the Mediterranean on Thursday was once the target of political vandals who wrote in Arabic on its underside, “We will bring this plane down.” Three EgyptAir security officials said the threatening graffiti, which appeared about two years ago, had been the work of aviation workers at Cairo Airport. Playing on the phonetic similarity between the last two letters in the plane’s registration, SU-GCC, and the surname of Egypt’s president, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, some workers also wrote “traitor” and “murderer.”

Unsealing the case could allow the U.S. Justice Department to make public details of why the man turned against Islamic State at a time when the government is trying to combat the group's online propaganda. The 27-year-old man had been cooperating in investigations and had explored speaking publicly against the militant group "for some time" before agreeing to...

A spokesman for the U.S. State Department said no agreement on such action has been made with Russia. Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that Moscow had proposed to Washington that the coalition call on all factions eager to abide by a cease-fire in Syria to leave the areas where the al-Qaida branch is active by May 25. Then Russia and the U.S.-led coalition could conduct joint strikes against the Nusra Front and any other...

No one, however, is going back to search for the root causes of the events in today’s complicated and problematic Middle East. The facts are, notwithstanding the forever continuing Palestinian/Israeli war, that the Middle East was kept relatively peaceful and political Islam and its terrorism was kept under control in a secular Iran until...

President Barack Obama and a high-profile official delegation that included former presidents Jimmy Carter, George W.

He’s a smart man who was an extremely competent US Army general officer; perhaps even a mini MacArthur without the gigantic ego and the propensity for hunkering down in dugouts. Petraeus was the man who led the surge, who took command of US forces in Afghanistan, who later became the Director of the CIA. In an era searching for real military leadership, Petraeus seemed just what the doctor ordered. Or, was he? His reputation was tarnished by an affair with his biographer and his carelessness which allowed her access to his Top...

New allegations about the 9/11 attacks are coming from someone close to the classified investigation. In the three years following the terror attacks the 9/11 Commission found no evidence the Saudi government or high-ranking Saudi officials funded Al Qaeda. But John Lehman -- a former member of that investigative commission -- said a classified section of the investigation shows that as many as six Saudi individuals may have played a role in the attacks.

    Recently, on the MSNBC "Morning Joe" show, presumptive Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump reiterated his desire to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the United States. Why this fear of Islam and Muslims? Liberal talk show host Bill Maher recently said that the more a person knows about Islam, the more he fears Islam. The essence of Islam is to subjugate, oppress, forcibly convert or kill Kafirs (non-Muslims). This follows from the Islamic scriptures, the Koran, The Hadith (sayings and deeds of Mohammed), and the Sira (the biography of Mohammed). The Koran calls on Muslims to emulate Mohammed: the short paperback...

    The valorous dead of the USS Cole have been betrayed too many times to count by each administration On Thursday morning, sailors on board the USS Cole were lining up for an early lunch. Seventeen of them died as an Al Qaeda bomb on board a fishing boat tore through the hull outside the galley. The dead included 15 men and 2 women, one of whom had a young child. For three weeks the crew of the USS Cole struggled to keep their ship from sinking while working waist deep in water with bucket brigades, sleeping on the deck and...

    The United States will endorse a tougher tone with Israel in an upcoming international report that takes the Jewish state to task over settlements, demolitions and property seizures on land the Palestinians claim for a future state, diplomats told The Associated Press. The U.S. and its fellow Mideast mediators also will chastise Palestinian leaders for failing to rein in anti-Israeli violence. But the diplomats involved in drafting the document said its primary focus will be a surge of construction in Jewish housing in the West Bank and east Jerusalem. The U.S. approval of the harsh language marks a subtle shift....

    Understanding The Threat ^ | 5 May 16 | John Guandolo
    Travelers using U.S. airports are familiar with long lines due to TSA checkpoints, and recent reports indicate lines will get longer in the near future because of new TSA screening procedures, fewer TSA officers and other related issues. Yet, America is no safer since 9/11 because the federal government has thrown bureaucracy at the threat and entrusted our enemy inside our security perimeter instead of understanding the threat and dealing with it. Former Director of Central Intelligence R. James Woolsey tells the story of being in Israel and speaking with the Director of Security for Ben Gurion Airport. When Mr....

    It’s hardly any wonder that Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes has a "mind meld" with his boss, the president. According to a David Samuels New York Times Magazine article to be published Sunday and already posted to the website, Rhodes, like Barack Obama, is contemptuous of "the American foreign-policy establishment." What Obama calls the "Washington playbook" dictating the sorts of responses available to American policymakers, Rhodes calls the "Blob." Blob includes "editors and reporters at The New York Times, The Washington Post, The New Yorker," etc. It also encompasses, according to Rhodes, Obama's former secretary of state Hillary Clinton,...

    An Obama administration plan to resettle a greater number of foreign refugees in the United States by expediting the screening process is drawing concern from Capitol Hill, where lawmakers are warning that the administration is not capable of properly screening these individuals for ties to terrorism. The Obama administration has committed to bring at least 10,000 Syrian refugees onto American soil in fiscal year 2016 by accelerating security screening procedures from 18-24 months to around three months, according to sources who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon. Obama administration officials told the Free Beacon that they remain committed to the...

    Today is the first anniversary of the Islamic State’s first attack in the homeland. Just a couple of short months later, in response to the Chattanooga jihadi who slaughtered four Marines, one Navy officer said: “The War Has Just Begun. More to Come.” He was right. Yet one year after jihadis attacked our Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest in defense of free speech, the West is in full surrender mode. We went into the event with our eyes open. We knew the risks. But we knew the risks were greater, for our children and our children’s children, if we...
