  • Defiant Merkel defends refugee stance after attacks

    Yahoo News ^ | 7/28/16 | AFP
    Berlin (AFP) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Thursday rebuffed calls to reverse her welcoming stance toward refugees after a series of brutal attacks in the country. Merkel, who interrupted her summer holiday to face the media in Berlin, said the four assaults within a week were "shocking, oppressive and depressing" but not a sign that authorities had lost control. The German leader said the assailants "wanted to undermine our sense of community, our openness and our willingness to help people in need". "We firmly reject this," she said at a wide-ranging news conference. Merkel repeated her rallying cry from...
  • A Democrat finally calls for defeating ISIS - and gets booed

    On the third night of the Democratic convention, a speaker finally brought up defeating ISIS and other terrorists — only to be met with boos from the crowd. "These murderers must be stopped," declared former Secretary of Defense and CIA Director Leon Panetta. Cue the deafening chorus of boos, plus chants of "No more war!" from convention delegates. [Snip] [This] helps explain why no speaker brought up the terrorist threat - or groups like Boko Haram and ISIS - on the first two nights. This is the Democratic base that Hillary Clinton must deal with in the fall campaign. And...

    "A Catholic priest has called for Christians to take a stand against Islamic terror, arguing that pacifism in the face of mortal danger is immoral and un-Christian." "But writing for LifeZette.com, Father George Rutler, the pastor of St. Michael’s church in Hell’s Kitchen, New York City, argues that not only is such pacifism immoral, it is the Christian duty to protect both oneself and other innocents from violent aggressors." "Referring to Jesus’s exhortation, found in Matthew 5:39 – “But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the...

    In a pro- instead of reactive move that many will say was long overdue, if quite ironic considering it was Germany's lax immigration policy for most of 2015 that is the reason for Europe's soaring "radical Islam" crisis, overnight German police and special forces raided a mosque and eight apartments in Hildesheim, said to be a hotbed of a radical Salafist community, the interior minister of the northern state of Lower Saxony said on Thursday.

    In the wake of the horrific Jihadist attack on a Catholic church in Normandy, France, Pope Francis’ latest statements that the world war we are in is not a religious war shows a lack of knowledge of Islamic doctrine. The Pope is not alone in this view. Every major Western political leader from George W. Bush through to Barack Obama has maintained the same belief. When the Islamic State caliphate was declared in 2014, their media arm issued a slick, 10-page document announcing the establishment of the caliphate. In those 10 pages, they cited Islamic scripture 26 times–scripture from the...

    With friends like Saudi Arabia, who needs enemies? Last week we learned that the Saudi government almost certainly played a role in the 9/11 terrorist attack and that our government kept that secret from the public for about fourteen years. A brief history of the coverup is in order here. In 2002, a joint congressional committee investigated the intelligence failures that led to the attack. That committee found suspicious clues that pointed toward Saudi Arabia--an official "ally" of the United States known for exporting radical Wahhabi Islam across the world. In a 28-page summary, the committee detailed the connections between...

Striking at France’s religious heart and traditional roots, two Islamic terrorists invaded the sixteenth-century St. Etienne church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray, a town of about 30,000 near Rouen in Normandy, Tuesday morning after 9:00 a.m during mass.

    The Palestinian Authority is preparing a lawsuit against the British government over the issuing of the 1917 Balfour Declaration that paved the way for the creation of the State of Israel. The PA’s Foreign Minister Riyad al-Malki told Arab League leaders gathered in Mauritania Monday that London is responsible for all “Israeli crimes” committed since the end of the British mandate in 1948. Signed by British Foreign Secretary Lord Arthur James Balfour in 1917, the declaration was seen as giving the Zionist movement official recognition and backing on the part of a major power, on the eve of the British...

    When it comes to the connection between Islam and violence against non-Muslims, one fact must be embraced: the majority of those in positions of leadership and authority in the West are either liars or fools, or both. No other alternative exists. The reason for this uncharitable assertion is simple: If Islam was once a faraway, exotic religion, today we hear calls for, and see acts of, violence committed in its name—or the name of its deity “Allahu Akbar!”—practically every day. And many of us still have “ears that hear and eyes that see.” It’s no secret: Muslims from all around...

Israel has expressed sympathy to the governments and peoples, and is helping or has offered to help the hardest-hit countries—France, Germany, and Belgium—fight the terror. It has been different when terror has pounded Israel. Even during the five-year onslaught known as the Second Intifada (2000-2005), Europe was sharply critical of Israel and denounced all its terror-fighting methods as immoral. The contrast is particularly striking in light of...

The carnage began at approximately 9am on Tuesday when two knife-wielding Muslim terrorists, chanting their battle cry of “Allahuakbar,” burst into a church during morning mass and took hostages. They then proceeded to murder, Jacques Hamel, an 86-year-old priest by slitting his throat before being shot dead by police snipers. Another hostage, gravely wounded by the attackers, is...

    ‘Mere Islam’ and the Munich Massacre Killer wasn’t a refugee, ISIS, or even a Sunni: but he was Muslim… July 25, 2016 Raymond Ibrahim    Raymond Ibrahim is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center. A German-born 18-year-old of Iranian descent named Ali Sonboly went on a shooting spree last Friday.  He reportedly targeted young children; a number of adolescents were among the nine he murdered. This incident is a reminder that the ongoing terrorization of the West is not limited to the Islamic State (“ISIS”), “extreme” Wahhabi or Salafi interpretations of Islam, or terrorists posing as...

    Kaine: The Face of the Democrats’ Dangerous Foreign Policy Priorities A telling pick for the Clinton VP post. July 25, 2016 Joseph Klein    Hillary Clinton settled on Virginia Senator Tim Kaine to be her running mate.  Senator Kaine’s self-effacing description of himself is “boring,” a trait that Hillary appears to relish. “I love that about him,” she told CBS News. Hillary also was looking for someone with knowledge of national security issues. Senator Kaine serves on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and Arms Services Committee. What she really found in Senator Kaine is a running mate who epitomizes...

    Visitors who simply wanted to enjoy the sun at the outdoor pool were insulted by youths. What happened in the nudist area, has made many bathers, including families with their children, afraid. A group of young men insulted guests, viciously berating especially women. "You have insulted us, insulted and even spat upon," says a reader that her name would not name for fear. "We women are all sluts and they would exterminate us all, as was the wording." In between the young men shouted "Allahu akbar". The fear of bathers at the leisure center was so large that nobody intervened...

    AT LEAST one person has been killed and 12 more are injured after a Syrian asylum seeker blew himself outside a wine bar in Germany.

Hermann said the suspect, who was known to police, had lived in Germany for two years but was denied asylum in the country a year ago. He said it is unclear if the suspect intended to kill others or just himself but said he had “tried to...

    Before the coup attempt last week, the pupils, aged between 14 and 17, were made to dress up in camouflage and were handed guns with empty magazines, according to their lawyers.

The mum of a 15-year-old boy caught up in the arrest, Emre, while waiting for news outside Istanbul’s Maltepe Prison said: “Our child has never held a gun before. “They were used, they were forced to do this.” The incarcerated kids families and lawyers...

    One year after they signed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, popularly known as the Iran deal, the Iranians are secretly attempting to procure illicit nuclear technology and equipment. So says Germany’s domestic intelligence agency. It appears the mullahs are supremely confident that America and the West will do nothing to enforce the agreement. Looking back on the Iran nuclear deal and the singular role Iran’s American lobby, the National Iranian American Council (NIAC), played in the formulation and promotion of the agreement, it’s clear that Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s past experience with President Obama has given him...
