The swastika tie and the Middle East “peace process”

Egyptian President Anwar Sadat (1918-1981) is lionized today as a great peacemaker for concluding the Camp David Accords with Israel, under the auspices of U.S. President Jimmy Carter. But the great tête-à-tête between Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin did not go as most people assume. Find out what really happened in The Palestinian […]

Recent Adventures in ‘Allahu Akbar’

Recent Adventures in ‘Allahu Akbar’

A Dutch mosque wants to stop people from associating the phrase with violence. It will be tough. My latest in FrontPage: The NL Times reported Tuesday that the Blauwe Moskee in Amsterdam Nieuw-West wants to broadcast the Islamic call to prayer (the Adhan) over loudspeakers, in an attempt to “normalize Islamic traditions” in the Netherlands.

Here We Go Again: Macron Vows Fight Against “Distorted” Version of Islam

My latest in the Geller Report: Four people are dead at the police prefecture in Paris at the hands of a longtime employee, Mickaël Harpon, who converted to Islam ten years ago. And now French President Emmanuel Macron has vowed finally to confront the problem: last Tuesday, he told Paris police officers that it was […]

India: Muslim pressures ailing Sikh neighbor to convert to Islam, thrashes him when he refuses

India: Muslim pressures ailing Sikh neighbor to convert to Islam, thrashes him when he refuses

Islamic tolerance. The Qur’an says “There is no compulsion in religion” (2:256). However, what constitutes “compulsion” is in the eye of the beholder. The institutionalized subjugation of the dhimma, with its regular humiliation and harassment, from which one can be freed for the simple price of converting to Islam, is not considered compulsion. Remember Steve […]

Islamic State brides stab 16-year-old girl and one-legged man to death for leaving Islam
By Robert Spencer on Oct 15, 2019 02:00 pm

Islamic State brides stab 16-year-old girl and one-legged man to death for leaving Islam

In this case these women were not behaving in an “extremist” manner. 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 […]

British Museum exhibit explores the influence of Muslim culture on the West

British Museum exhibit explores the influence of Muslim culture on the West

Does this exhibit explain how the Islamic influence on Western art was severely limited by the fact that Sharia forbids representation of the human form? Or would that reflect negatively upon Islam and Sharia, and so is forbidden to be stated? Will the British Museum host an exhibition on how Western art influenced the Islamic […]

General who issued groveling apology for alleged Qur’an desecration says Trump has blood on his hands over Kurds

Here is General Allen several years ago, issuing an embarrassing and groveling apology to “the noble people of Afghanistan” for an alleged desecration of the Qur’an by U.S. troops: General Allen clearly had no idea how weak and pusillanimous his repeated apologies in this video made him appear to many, if not most, of “the […]

Loyola Marymount University accuses YAF of “Islamophobia” for posting “counter-jihad poster”

I am an “anti-Muslim extremist,” claims Cristobal Spielmann, and offers this as his explanation of why: a pamphlet I wrote “takes every opportunity to paint the near entirety of Islam and the Quran as violent while creating a paranoid ‘us vs. them’ narrative of the West in a moral struggle with Islam.” In reality, of […]

Trump denounces Turkey’s incursion into Syria, imposes economic sanctions

This won’t be enough for those who are clamoring for the US to go to war with Turkey. All those who are claiming that Trump is under Erdogan’s thumb will keep on saying it. Meanwhile, there is no doubt that Turkey is an unreliable ally, and that the alliance should be ended, and Turkey should […]

Tariq Ramadan’s Sympathy for the “Psychotic” Mikael Harpon

Tariq Ramadan, the “towering intellect” and “leading Islamic scholar” whom Time magazine in 2004 called one of the world’s “100 most influential thinkers,” but who has also been charged with multiple rapes involving “extreme sexual violence,” had a brief but characteristically mendacious comment on Mikael Harpon, the Muslim who killed four people – three policemen […]

ABC News uses footage from Kentucky gun range, claims it’s video from frontline battle between Kurds and Turks

Syria, Kentucky — what’s the difference? When even CNN admits that “this is a big black eye for ABC News,” you know it’s very bad. It strains credulity to think this happened by mistake. ABC, like all of the establishment media, was so avid to use the Turkish incursion into Syria to get Trump that […]

France: Five Muslims, including an imam, arrested in connection with Paris police jihad massacre

An imam? But how did he overlook all the Qur’an’s teachings of peace and tolerance that are so blazingly obvious to imams such as Pope Francis? “French police arrest five, including an imam, in connection with knife attack on Paris police station,” by Henry Samuel, Telegraph, October 14, 2019 (thanks to The Religion of Peace): […]

France: Education Minister reveals a dozen cases of “radicalized” Muslim public school teachers

Did anyone vet them when they were hired? Of course not. To have done so would have been “Islamophobic.” “French Govt Minister Announces a Dozen Cases of Radicalised Muslim Teachers,” by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, October 12, 2019: French Education Minister Jean-Michel Blanquer revealed cases of a dozen Muslim public school teachers who have been radicalised, […]
