Sunday, March 18, 2018 8:48 PM

posted by Christopher Holton Here we have a vivid illustration of just how fanatic and committed our enemies in the global Jihadist insurgency can be. This incident also speaks to the need for a terrorist registry in America modeled after the successful sex offender registry. A jihadi named Fazliddin Kurbanov serving a 25-year prison sentence for […]

Saturday, March 17, 2018 5:42 PM

posted by Christopher Holton We have long reported on TerrorTrendsBulletin about two theaters in the global Jihadist insurgency that have gone largely ignored: Thailand and the Philippines.

Another Day of Jihad in America…and the National TV Yawns
Wednesday, March 7, 2018 10:37 PM

posted by Christopher Holton Don’t bother checking the television news networks for these two stories. You won’t find them. The stories must not fit the narratives that the various 24/7 TV news networks are pushing. Or maybe they just won’t attract large audiences for ratings.

The Case for a Terrorist Registry in America
Wednesday, December 27, 2017 10:05 PM

by Christopher W Holton Since the 1990s sex offenders in America have been required to register with their local sheriff so that law enforcement can be aware of their residence.

Pay Attention to what the Jihadists Say
Monday, December 11, 2017 3:20 PM

by Christopher W. Holton For those, such as the Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, Congressman Michael McCaul, who take comfort in the repeated individual jihadi attacks such as occurred in New York City as a sign of the weakness of our enemies, we can only point out that they have not done their […]
Jihadists React with Rhetoric to America’s Israel Embassy Move
Friday, December 8, 2017 3:52 PM

by Christopher W. Holton Many believe that the best way to judge someone is not just by their friends, but by their enemies. If that axiom is true, then America must be doing something right, because the lowest of the low in the human race are coming forth with their venom and threats in the […]

by Christopher W. Holton The folks over at the Clarion Project have a review of a new report published by the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change. The report is entitled: “Struggle Over Scripture: Charting the Rift Between Islamist Extremism and Mainstream Islam.” On the one hand, the report recognizes the close affiliation between the […]
