Yameen Rasheed, a martyr for the freedom of speech in this darkening age, was searching for his friend Ahmed Abdulla, who had been abducted. “Mr. Rasheed said Mr. Abdulla’s abduction followed a pattern of increasingly hostile actions against those who question how Islam is practiced in the Maldives.” “Amnesty International noted that the killing of […]

France was once a great nation. But when basic measures for self-defense become stigmatized and opposed as “right-wing,” the death spiral has begun. The France of Charles Martel is but a historical memory. The France of Emmanuel Macron won’t last long. “Macron Against Arresting and Deporting Radical Islamists,” by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, April 22, 2017: […]
No matter how bloodthirsty jihadis become, and how high the death toll mounts, Islamic supremacist spokesmen will claim victim status. It is a tested tactic that has been proven repeatedly to bamboozle Western authorities and get them to start signing checks, so why not? “Palestinian Authority Official: Terrorists Who Murder Americans Are ‘Victims,’” Washington Free […]
“Flanigan, the associate superintendent of Orlando Diocese schools, said ‘the information provided in the sixth grade class is not consistent with the teachings of the Catholic Church.’” But the author of this material is a saint in the Catholic Church, St. John Bosco. So did a saint spread ideas that were “not consistent with the […]
Did you know that a 14-year-old child can legally marry in New York State? Child marriages are happening all over the West because of numerous loopholes. Child brides are a norm in many Muslim states, and when appalling incidents such as the one reported below leak out, they serve as a reminder of how much Islamic […]
Back in January when I initially reported on Gargasoulas’ self-identification as a Muslim, numerous people indignantly tweeted and emailed me, saying that Dimitrious Gargasoulas was not Muslim, he was Greek, and this was not a jihad attack, as he was simply insane. That Islam is a religion and Greek is a nationality seemed to escape […]
“Federal contractors in Tennessee have been resettling refugees from countries including Somalia, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Liberia, Nigeria and Sudan, listed in the PRB report as among the ‘Top 10 Countries of Origin’ where FGM is practiced.” Did those federal contractors think that after bringing all those refugees into Tennessee that they would not see a rise […]
But would the New York Times ever publish an op-ed by a foe of jihad terror who spoke honestly about the terrorists’ motivating ideology? Don’t be silly. That would be “Islamophobic.” “New York Times Publishes Op-Ed by Convicted Terrorist, Describes Him as a ‘Palestinian Leader,’” by Alex Griswold, Washington Free Beacon, April 17, 2017: The […]
What is it about converts to Islam? Why do so many of them get the idea that their new religion commands them to commit treason and mass murder? On March 21, I published an article in PJ Media entitled “Meet Five Lethal American Converts to Islam.” But that was nearly a month ago; there has […]
This is an illustration of the truth about what I said last Thursday at Truman State University: that charges of “Islamophobia” and “racism” are used to hinder legitimate counter-terror efforts, thus paving the way for more jihad terror attacks. “The purge of a report on radical Islam has put NYC at risk,” by Paul Sperry, New […]
