Clear away the misinformation that has clouded the Israeli/ “Palestinian” conflict for decades

The truth about the Israeli/”Palestinian” conflict has been obscured for decades. American Presidents and even Israeli Prime Ministers have signed on to the falsehoods and validated them. This has led to billions, if not trillions, being wasted in self-defeating, ill-conceived policies. Enough is enough. Get the facts in The Palestinian Delusion: The Catastrophic History of […]

NPR Touts Walking Tour of Muslim History in NYC That Leaves Out City’s Biggest Muslim Historical Site

My latest in PJ Media: NPR on Saturday ran an enthusiastic, bubbly puff piece about “free walking tours” that take place “about once a month to remember centuries of Muslim history in New York City.” Gee, that’s swell.

President Trump announces $50 million in emergency aid to help Christians and other religious minorities in Syria

The question no one is addressing in the ongoing controversy over Trump and Syria is whether having American troops on the ground is really the best way to deal with the multiple problems the situation presents. Or if the US commits to going to war against every despot in the world, the wars will by […]

Shireen Qudosi and the question of Islamic reformers

Recently I had an unpleasant online encounter with the self-styled “Muslim Reformer” Shireen Qudosi that highlighted some of the principal problems with the entire Muslim reform movement in the West, and showed why so many people are skeptical of these “reformers.” Please pardon the personal references in the first part of this; this post is […]

A bit of common sense and clear thinking amid the current hysteria, from Caroline Glick. “Trump did not betray the Kurds,” by Caroline B.

Kurdish authorities say 785 Islamic State prisoners attack guards and escape

President Trump suggests that the Kurds may have released them in order to get us involved: ….Kurds may be releasing some to get us involved. Easily recaptured by Turkey or European Nations from where many came, but they should move quickly. Big sanctions on Turkey coming! Do people really think we should go to war […]

Egypt: Friends fear that family of ex-teacher of Islam who became Christian may have killed him

The death penalty for apostasy is part of Islamic law. It’s based on the Qur’an: “They wish you would disbelieve as they disbelieved so you would be alike. So do not take from among them allies until they emigrate for the cause of Allah. But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them […]
