Why you don’t really oppose jihad terror and Sharia oppression if you don’t support Israel
Wednesday, July 18, 2018 8:24 PM

Recently I’ve gotten quite a few emails from people who claim to be puzzled that I oppose jihad terror and Sharia oppression and yet support Israel. These people do not appear to realize that Israel is on the front lines of the global jihad, and that if they don’t support it, they don’t really oppose […]
Muslim Brotherhood-linked Rep. Keith Ellison demands Amazon stop selling books from SPLC-designated “hate groups”
Wednesday, July 18, 2018 7:51 PM

Keith Ellison’s letter to Jeff Bezos focuses on an alleged neo-Nazi’s material being sold at Amazon and published on Amazon’s self-publishing, but Ellison makes more sweeping statements, particularly his opening gambit: “I am writing to you with my concerns about the amount of money Amazon has made from the sale of literature and music published […]
Malaysia: Female student starts screaming after Qur’an recitation, mass hysteria breaks out
Wednesday, July 18, 2018 6:32 PM

Could this outbreak of mass hysteria have anything to do with the passages of the Qur’an that were being recited? Maybe the girl who started it all began screaming when she read some of the Qur’an’s passages about women. The Qur’an teaches that men are superior to women and should beat those from whom they […]
“Palestinian” Muslims launch flying firebomb from Gaza that lands in Israeli kindergarten
Wednesday, July 18, 2018 6:06 PM

Time for the UN to issue another condemnation of…Israel. “Flying firebomb from Gaza lands in Israeli kindergarten,” Bicom, July 18, 2018 (thanks to The Religion of Peace): A flying firebomb attached to a balloon, launched from Gaza, landed in the playground of a kindergarten in Israel yesterday. Five-year-old children were attending a summer programme at […]
India: Husband and two sons of Qur’an teacher sexually harass nine-year-old girl during lessons
Wednesday, July 18, 2018 5:00 PM

The victim was nine years old. This may have been because Chand Babu’s reverence for Muhammad led him to think of children as sexual objects. Islamic apologists in the West routinely deny that Muhammad consummated his marriage with (i.e., raped) Aisha when she was nine, and go through all sorts of contortions to deny the […]
Video from India: On TV show, Muslim cleric physically assaults female guest, a Supreme Court lawyer
Wednesday, July 18, 2018 4:34 PM

“Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and […]
Robert Spencer in PJ Media: The Direct Connection Between Devoutness in Islam and Violence
Wednesday, July 18, 2018 4:18 PM

Virtually all jihad terrorists are devout Muslims. My latest in PJ Media: It is commonplace for Leftists and Islamic apologists in the West to claim that jihadis are ignorant of Islam, and indifferent to it. “Terrorists don’t kill for their religion,” asserted an article published in the World Economic Forum last year, just one of […]
Australia: Supreme Court judge bans wife of accused jihad terrorist from wearing niqab in court
Wednesday, July 18, 2018 4:05 PM

“Once there are multiple spectators in the public gallery wearing niqabs and traditional Islamic dress, working out who was who if something happened in court might not be a simple matter, especially as such dress tends to be very similar. I have previously indicated that, whilst all are welcome in my court, spectators in the […]
Hugh Fitzgerald: The Mosque At Basking Ridge: A Morality Tale? (Part 6)
Wednesday, July 18, 2018 2:00 PM

The Guardian report continued: To some people in Basking Ridge, Chaudry’s struggle looked less noble. They saw his battle with the town government as a local political feud, which dated back to his tenure as an elected official, long before he ever proposed the mosque. Chaudry had first run for a seat on the town […]
Newsweek reports sarcastic explanation of “Allahu akbar” as “a message of love” as if it were serious
Wednesday, July 18, 2018 1:02 PM

“Dear Richard,” Professor Gad Saad remarked. “Arabic is my mother tongue. When properly translated, ‘Allahu Akbar’ means ‘We love all people but hold a special fondness for Jews, women, and gays.’ Don’t worry. It’s a message of love, tolerance, and liberalism.” Gad was being sarcastic, but Newsweek’s intrepid reporter Benjamin Fearnow reports his words as […]
Robert Spencer in FrontPage: The Left’s Trump-Putin Meltdown
Wednesday, July 18, 2018 12:35 PM

Just another nail in the coffin of the Leftist establishment’s credibility. My latest in FrontPage: In a press conference with Vladimir Putin, Donald Trump refused to validate the findings of a deeply corrupt and compromised intelligence community that has been working assiduously since before he was even elected to discredit and destroy him, and now […]
For the First Time Ever: the Shocking 1,400-Year History of Jihad
Tuesday, July 17, 2018 4:19 PM

Here is the first official press release for my new book: Here, for the first time, is the entire history of Islamic jihad activity from the beginning of Islam to the present day – from Spain to India, from Muhammad’s massacre of Jews at the Khaybar oasis in Arabia to the hijacked jets taking down […]
Switzerland: Muslim leader complains that “Islam is being reduced to problematic elements such as terror”
Tuesday, July 17, 2018 3:22 PM

Who is responsible for this reductionism? Pascal Gemperli would doubtless say that “Islamophobes” are responsible, when in reality jihad terrorists are wholly and solely responsible. “Muslim umbrella group warns against stigmatisation of Islam,” SwissInfo, July 17, 2018: The Federation of Islamic Organisations in Switzerland has warned against associating crimes with a certain religion. In an […]
Richard Dawkins savaged as “racist” for saying cathedral bells more pleasant than “aggressive-sounding Allahu Akbar”
Tuesday, July 17, 2018 2:41 PM

What’s important here is not what Richard Dawkins likes or dislikes, but the fact that people call him a “racist” with a straight face for thinking “Allahu akbar” sounds aggressive, and preferring the sound of cathedral bells. What race is Islam again? What race is the jihad murder of innocent civilians? I never can remember. […]
Sweden: Muslim preacher teaches Muslims to hate non-Muslims, children wash in mosque after being with Christians
Tuesday, July 17, 2018 2:24 PM

Imagine the surprise of Swedish authorities when they discover that this isn’t happening just among a tiny minority of extremists, but is mainstream Islamic practice. But by then it is likely to be far too late. “‘After day with Christians, Muslim teens wash in mosque’: Study charts rise of Salafism in Sweden,” RT, July 16, […]
British victim of Muslim rape gang was trafficked to Morocco for prostitution
Tuesday, July 17, 2018 2:11 PM

“Writing in her book No Way Out, ‘Kate Elysia’ — a pseudonym — also revealed that she was sexually abused by more than 70 men from Birmingham and the West Midlands for years, but only two rapists were ever convicted.” Why? Because British authorities care far more about being accused of “Islamophobia” than they do […]
Hugh Fitzgerald: The Mosque At Basking Ridge: A Morality Tale? (Part 5)
Tuesday, July 17, 2018 2:00 PM

In Basking Ridge, New Jersey, the planning board several years ago rejected the local lslamic Society’s building plan for a new mosque. Among the objections were that the mosque’s visitors had been undercounted by 50%, that the parking lot attached to the mosque was too small for those visitors, that the mosque would be in the middle of […]
Malaysia: Muslim justifies his marriage to 11-year-old by saying he wanted to marry her since she was 7
Tuesday, July 17, 2018 1:49 PM

Oh, that makes it all right, eh? Islamic tradition records that Muhammad consummated his marriage with (i.e., raped) Aisha when she was nine, and the resultant fact that child marriage is accepted in wide swaths of the Islamic world. Child marriage has abundant attestation in Islamic tradition and law. Turkey’s directorate of religious affairs (Diyanet) […]
UK: “Respected south Wales businessman” founds jihad cell accused of attacks in Bangladesh and plot in US
Tuesday, July 17, 2018 1:28 PM

The idea that poverty and ignorance cause terrorism has led the U.S. to shower billions on Muslim countries, hoping to win hearts and minds and alleviate what mainstream analysts doggedly believe are the root causes of terrorism. But it has been known for years that poverty doesn’t really cause terrorism at all. The Economist reported in […]
The Arabian Nightmare of the West
Tuesday, July 17, 2018 1:00 PM

Terror as curiosity: countless sufferings without the realization of such … In 1983, Robert Irwin wrote a fantasy novel, The Arabian Nightmare, about a young Englishman who was dragged into a whirlwind of sinister and ridiculous events in Cairo. The Arabian nightmare he learned was like a disease or a curse. It was terrible and […]
