McMaster is proceeding on the theory, which is almost universally taken for granted by the foreign policy establishment, that showing respect for the Qur’an and Islam will take the teeth out of the jihadi claim that the U.S. is at war with Islam, and win hearts and minds, resulting in reciprocal gestures of respect. But […]

“No place in Western Europe is truly safe from the warriors of Islam.” And why is that? Because of the Muslim migrant policies that Western European leaders have pursued with indefatigable single-mindedness, while smearing all opponents of these suicidal policies as “racists” and “Islamophobes.” Theresa May, David Cameron, Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron and François Hollande, […]
A hadith depicts Muhammad saying: “If a husband calls his wife to his bed [i.e. to have sexual relation] and she refuses and causes him to sleep in anger, the angels will curse her till morning” (Bukhari 4.54.460). Another hadith attributes this to Muhammad: “By him in Whose Hand lies my life, a woman can […]
No explanation for this was offered. Would seeking the death penalty in this case be “Islamophobic”? “Prosecutors will not seek death in Tampa neo-Nazi slaying,” Associated Press, August 10, 2017: Prosecutors said they will not seek the death penalty against a former neo-Nazi accused of killing two of his roommates. The decision was announced without explanation […]
“There really is no justification for taking off a person’s religious headgear,” said Powell’s attorney, Marwa Rifahie of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations. But there is.

The Qur’an depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to […]
The seizure of Infidel girls and their use as sex slaves is sanctioned in the Qur’an. According to Islamic law, Muslim men can take “captives of the right hand” (Qur’an 4:3, 4:24, 33:50). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful unto thee thy wives unto whom thou hast paid their dowries, and those […]
This has been obvious, and widely reported upon (at least at sites such as Jihad Watch) for years. But little has actually changed. Look at the Express headline: it still uses the politically correct euphemism “Asian” for Muslim, even though Hindus and other Asians have not been involved in these rape gangs. And this is […]
There are just so many such people, French authorities can’t possibly keep track of them all. And since he wasn’t known for “extremism,” they let him alone. After all, it isn’t as if reading the Qur’an and going to mosque could “radicalize” him, right? It’s a religion of peace! “Pictured: Algerian, 36, suspected of mowing […]
