    If a Muslim woman wasn't punished for refusing to stand when a federal judge entered the courtroom, others would have been emboldened to show disrespect for the court, the judge has ruled. Chief U.S. District Judge Michael Davis wrote that defendant Amina Farah Ali's silent gesture -- which she said was rooted in religious principle -- could have led to chaos during her trial on terrorism-related charges last year. "If Ali were allowed to sit while court is called, it may have been possible that her many sympathizers would have begun to emulate her in a show of support," Davis...
  • House Members: Holder and Clinton Considering Release of ‘Blind Sheikh’

    The Jewish Press ^ | September 20, 2012 | Lori Lowenthal Marcus
    In a strongly worded letter to Attorney General Eric Holder and Secretary of State Hillary R. Clinton, eight members of congress have demanded that a request to release Omar Abdel-Rahman from federal prison be rejected. Abdel-Rahman, known as the “blind sheikh,” inspired the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and is serving a life sentence for his role in a plot to conduct assassinations and destroy bridges, tunnels and other landmarks in New York City. It is believed that the unrest blanketing much of the Middle East last week was inspired at least in part by the demands that the Blind...

    White House considers compassionate release for the Blind SheikhThe Obama administration is reportedly in talks with Egypt’s government to transfer convicted terrorist Omar Abdel Rahman back to his home country. This would be a major foreign-policy blunder and an insult to the counterterrorism professionals who put the terror leader behind bars. Rahman, known as the “Blind Sheikh,” was the leader of the terrorist group Al-Gama’a al-Islamiya, which conducted a series of attacks in Egypt in the early 1990s. Rahman was in exile in New York at the time, preaching at mosques, fundraising, building a radical following and conspiring to create...

    When Washington Post columnist Marc Thiessen and the Government Accountability Institute reported that President Obama has attended less than half of his Presidential Daily Briefs (PDBs) on intelligence, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney called the findings "hilarious." The next day, U.S. Libyan Ambassador Chris Stevens and three American staff members were murdered. ... Still, Mr. Carney owes Mr. Thiessen an apology. Carney said Thiessen's report was "hilarious" and flippantly dismissed the need for Mr. Obama to attend live intelligence briefings. Then, after four Americans were murdered and Mr. Obama's foreign policy approval rating plunged, Mr. Obama has now decided...

    Terrorists aren’t supposed to get visas. But Hani Nour Eldin was apparently invited to D.C. this week to meet with top officials. Did no one Google him? It was supposed to be a routine meeting for Egyptian legislators in Washington, an opportunity for senior Obama administration officials to meet with new members of Egypt’s parliament and exchange ideas on the future of relations between the two countries. Instead, the visit this week looks like it’s turning into a political fiasco. Included in the delegation of Egyptian lawmakers was Hani Nour Eldin, who, in addition to being a newly elected member...

    Pamela Geller told Fox and Friends’ Tucker Carlson that Barack Obama was literally “…sanctioning the motives behind the murderous Muslim riots by trying to silence the Muhammad filmmakers.” (1) Geller is right. The clear and perpetual purpose of Muslim Jihadists is the intimidation into silence and submission of all who dare express any view which operatives of the cult of Islam consider contrary to the will of Muhammed or the “divine” call-to-global-murder he manufactured 1400 years ago. After the attacks on the American Embassy in Cairo, Barack Hussein Obama acted precisely according to the dictates of his Marxist-Islamist upbringing as...

    ...they also asked a retired Army general for comment.He said all these terrorists know is to fear power and force. The best was to control them, he offered, was to tell the country in no uncertain terms that if it killed 4 of our people, we would respond by killing 400 of theirs. This brought shock and dismay from mainstream media commentators across both the electronic and print news services. But, I agree with the general. I have seen it in action. Some 43 years ago I commanded a small television and radio station in Tuy Hoa, Vietnam.

    Working from a beige house at the end of a dirt road, Jeff Bardin switches on a laptop, boots up a program that obscures his location, and pecks in a passkey to an Internet forum run by an Iraqi branch of al-Qaida. Soon the screen displays battle flags and AK-47 rifles, plus palm-lined beaches to conjure up a martyr's paradise. "I do believe we are in," says Bardin, a stout, 54-year-old computer security consultant. Barefoot in his bedroom, Bardin pretends to be a 20-something Canadian who wants to train in a militant camp in Pakistan. With a few keystrokes, he...

    During a brief appearance Monday, a boyish-faced Daoud wore leg shackles, an orange jumpsuit and a scruffy, unkempt beard and Afro-style hair. He’s accused of trying to blow up a bar and liquor store using a car bomb placed in the back of a Jeep Grand Cherokee Friday night. Though federal authorities haven’t identified the bar, the co-owner of Cal’s at 400 S. Wells, Mike Feirstein said Sunday that he believes his family’s bar was the target. A federal complaint alleges (Abel)Daoud pressed a “detonator” that he believed would explode the car bomb, killing dozens. Daoud — who worshipped at...

    CAIRO—Ambassador Chris Stevens was still breathing when Libyans stumbled across him inside a room in the American embassy in Benghazi, pulled him out and drove him to a hospital after last week’s deadly attack in the eastern Libyan city, witnesses told the Associated Press on Monday. Fahd al-Bakoush, a freelance videographer, was among the Libyan civilians searching through the embassy after gunmen and protesters rampaged through it last Tuesday night. Al-Bakoush said he heard someone call out that he had tripped over a dead body. A group of people gathered as several men pulled the seemingly lifeless form from the...

    The liberal media’s desperate and shameless attempt to hold Islam in a positive light – solely to shield a battered Obama from blame - is disgusting and nothing short of criminal. The Libyan embassy debacle had nothing to do with an anti-Muslim movie pieced together by a Christian; it was but another viscous and coordinated attack on the independence of America. Does the fact this act happened on 9/11 mean nothing…the same day Mr. Hussein sent a letter of apology to Egypt? Did the White House not receive multiple warnings as early as three days before the attack? Why were...

    Egypt’s General Intelligence Service warned that a jihadi group is planning to launch terrorist attacks against the US and Israeli embassies in Cairo, according to a report Tuesday by Egypt Independent, citing a secret letter obtained by Al-Masry Al-Youm. According to the report, the attack is being planned by Global Jihad, the group suspected of killing 16 Egyptian border guards in Sinai on August 5. Al-Masry Al-Youm reportedly obtained a copy of the September 4 letter, sent to all Egyptian security sectors, warning that Sinai- and Gaza-based Global Jihad cells were planning attacks on the two embassies. Egypt’s military is...

Prime Minister Hesham Kandil said "a number" of those involved in the tense, sometimes violent protests, which began Tuesday, later confessed to getting paid to participate, according to the state-run Middle East News Agency. He noted, too, that some of the demonstrators were acting on their own and weren't paid to vent their anger against the United States over an inflammatory anti-Islam film...
