    A series of apparently coordinated attacks rocked a hotel complex in Kenya's capital on Tuesday. A U.S. citizen was among those killed. An explosion tore through a bank in the compound at about 3 p.m. local time, then a suicide bomb detonated in the lobby of the nearby DusitD2 hotel, before attackers entered the hotel, shooting. The U.S. State Department confirms that an American was killed but has not released his or her name. Authorities in Nairobi so far have released no official casualty numbers, but sources have told news wires that 15 bodies were taken to a mortuary. Cabinet...
  • Facebook and Twitter consult with Hamas-linked CAIR over who gets banned from their platforms

    This doesn’t come as any surprise given the eagerness of both Facebook and Twitter to be Sharia-compliant. Facebook’s Vice President Joel Kaplan traveled to Pakistan in July 2017 to assure the Pakistani government that it would remove “anti-Islam” material. And Facebook has done so assiduously, banning numerous foes of jihad terror and twice now blocking the Jihad Watch Facebook page on spurious technical grounds. And Twitter has recently been notifying people that they’re in violation of Pakistan’s blasphemy laws, which violation carries a death sentence. But this shows how sick and degenerate the social media giants really are. CAIR has...
  • Real World War-Why we are nowhere near winning it.

    “The war is on,” General Mike Flynn wrote three years ago.  And he went on to describe it in our best-selling book The Field of Fight. We face a working coalition that extends from North Korea and China to Russia, Iran, Syria, Cuba, Bolivia, Venezuela and Nicaragua.  We are under attack, not only from nation-states directly, but also from al Qaeda, Hezbollah, ISIS, and countless other terror groups. It’s a world war, and the enemy alliance is composed of both radical Islamist groups and nations—above all, Iran and its proxies--and radical secular tyrannies, like Putin’s.  While we have defeated them...

    It started out with an isolated case here and there. In 2005, Oriana Fallaci was put on trial in Italy for her anti-Islam book The Force of Reason. In 2010 and again in 2011, politician Geert Wilders was tried in the Netherlands for publicly criticizing Islam. In 2011, the Danish Lars Hedegaard was found guilty by a Danish court of hate speech for having, in the privacy of his own home, made reference to the frequency of incest rape in Muslim communities. (The verdict was later reversed by the Danish Supreme Court.) Also in 2011, Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff was tried...

    Obama’s Christmas Genocide From Iraq to Gaza, from Egypt to Syria, fewer Christians in the Middle East. Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism. This Christmas, there will be fewer Christians celebrating in their homes in the Middle East than ever before. Before Obama, Nineveh Plains hosted 90,000 Christians. Today, it’s under 40,000. Nineveh is one of the first cities mentioned in the Bible. The Nineveh Plains are the heartland of Syriac Christianity. But now the plains are barren with ruined...
  • BEHEADED 'by ISIS': Scandinavian women murdered in Morocco were victims of terrorism

    ISIS terrorists are suspected of murdering two Scandinavian women in Morocco Danish officials have said today, confirming that one of them was beheaded on video. Maren Ueland, 28, from Norway, and Louisa Vesterager Jespersen, 24, from Denmark, were found dead near the village of Imlil in Morocco's High Atlas mountains on Monday. At least one of the suspected killers is an 'extremist', Moroccan authorities have confirmed, prompting fears that the gruesome double murder was an act of terror. A video showing the murder of one of the women has been recognised as genuine, the PET Danish intelligence service said adding...
  • A TINY MINORITY OF HALF A MILLION JIHADISTS: Islamic terrorists are the world’s 8th largest military

    Islamic terrorists are a “tiny minority of extremists”. That’s the message we’ve been hearing ever since 9/11. They’re only a handful of “guys in a cave” or a few “lone wolves” radicalized over the internet. How tiny is that tiny minority? According to a study by the Center for Strategic and International Studies, there are 230,000 Jihadists. Put this tiny minority of extremists together in a city and you would have Boise, Idaho, or Richmond, Virginia, or Des Moines, Iowa. But that’s not a roster of Muslim civilians who support Islamic terrorism, just active members of terrorist groups. And...

    Now we know why Denmark cut itself off from Germany and Sweden and launched a massive security operation in September. It wasn’t against an ISIS-style terror attack, but against an Iranian plot to murder Ahwaz activists. The plot caused Copenhagen to close its bridges. Now the full story can be told and it may rock Europe and EU relations with Iran. Denmark’s ambassador is on the way home from Tehran. Iran’s pro-government Fars News is complaining about a bias against Iran, denying Iran had anything to do with the plot. Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen described the suspected plot as “totally unacceptable” Here...

    With all the media focus on the caravan, the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi murder, and later the pipe bombs, there was scant coverage of the tragic Beirut US Marine Barracks bombing October 23, 1983. We had proof positive intelligence the orders for that bombing came direct from Tehran, but we never responded. It is well to review the events surrounding this tragedy and why we never responded. On that day, 241 of our finest military personnel were killed, with scores more seriously injured. Almost simultaneously, a similar attack was carried out at the French military headquarters, killing 58 French paratroopers....

    Mosques are popping up all over Britain, especially in its capital city of London. Sharia courts are in full function in London, handing out actual decisions to London’s ever growing Muslim population. “London is more Islamic than many Muslim countries put together,” Islamic preacher Maulana Syed Raza Rizvi told local media Churches still outnumber mosques in Britain, but there are many mosques that are becoming overcrowded. Five years ago the Daily Mail published photos of churches and mosques in London. The difference was astonishing. The St Mary’s Church had only 12 people attending mass. While nearby at the Brune Street...

    The ancient mythical Greek island of Lesbos is today better known as anchorage ground for human traffickers and the problems and conflicts that have arisen in connection with the boat traffic. It is now reported that a large cross monument on the Greek Orthodox Christian island has been levelled to the ground. This after a group claiming to promote intercultural coexistence argued that the cross could be perceived as offensive to the predominantly Muslim boat migrants. The cross monument was built on the cliffs of Apellia, beneath the castle of Mytilene, in memory of people who have died in the...

    The Ministry of Tourism for the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago hosts a website extolling the many exquisite charms of the “true Caribbean” to be found there. The islands offer rich history, culture, biodiversity, and lodging with views “to die for.”Of late, though, a diaspora of Trinidad and Tobago emigres have preferred the views in Syria and Iraq, and the company of Islamic terrorist group ISIS. At least 130 of T&T’s 1.2 million citizens left their white and turquoise shorelines to fight with vicious Islamists half a world away. How did that happen? “Entire families went,” including at least...

    A top Iranian official has admitted for the first time that Iran knowingly helped al-Qaeda terrorists — including some of the 9/11 attackers — travel secretly through the Middle East. “Their movements [through Iran] were under the complete supervision of the Iranian intelligence,” Mohammad-Javad Larijani said in a recently surfaced interview. That was one of the main accusations leveled against Iran in the U.S. government’s 9/11 Commission Report, which named the nation as a state sponsor of terrorism. Larijani, the secretary of the Iranian judiciary’s High Council for Human Rights and a former diplomat, is a prominent member of the...

    Authorities have identified four cyclists who were killed while riding in Tajikistan in an attack that has been claimed by the IS terror group. The victims had all kept online blogs documenting their intercontinental bike journeys. A couple from Washington DC who quit their jobs to cycle and had already toured three continents were among those killed in Sunday's attack. The other two were a Swiss citizen and a Dutch national. American couple Lauren Geoghegan and Jay Austin, both 29, had been travelling for over a year. In April, Mr Austin wrote during a bike tour of Morocco: "Badness exists,...

A group of seven cyclists was heading north in Danghara district, about 55 miles southeast of the capital Dushanbe, when they were struck by a car with five armed people onboard on Sunday. Tajikistan’s interior minister said that, after striking the cyclists, the people in the car got out and attacked them with a firearm and a knife. The two Americans, a woman and a man, were killed along with a Swiss...

    An Iranian military commander said on Thursday Donald Trump should address any threats against Tehran directly to him, and mocked the US president as using the language of "nightclubs and gambling halls". The comments by Maj-Gen Qassem Suleimani, who heads the Quds Force of Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guards, were the latest salvo in a war of words between the two countries. "As a soldier, it is my duty to respond to Trump’s threats. If he wants to use the language of threat, he should talk to me, not to the president [Hassan Rouhani]," Soleimani was quoted as saying by the...

    The Obama administration approved a grant of $200,000 of taxpayer money to an al-Qaeda affiliate in Sudan, the Middle East Forum (MEF) discovered. The grant was approved ten years after the US Treasury designated the Islamic Relief Agency (ISRA) as an organization which funds terrorists. Government officials also authorized the release of at least $115,000 of the grant after they realized that the Khartoum-based ISRA was on the Treasury’s list of terror organizations. ISRA, also known as the Islamic African Relief Agency (IARA), was designated as terror-supporting organization in October 2004, due to its connection with Osama bin Laden and...

    Or, to put it another way, is there such as thing as an unbelieving Believer? One of the great fallacies of Western Europe's multicultural fantasy is that the children of imported Musselmen will become less Muslim and that, eventually, their offspring will become more like their nominally Christian but in fact entirely secular hosts. Accordingly, the British and others now dealing with the consequences of their willfully ahistorical blindness regarding the true nature of Islam, have assumed that "radical" Muslims are the exception rather than the rule, and so have treated them as aberrational.This, however, flies in the face...
