The idea behind the “inciting prostitution” charge is that it is women’s responsibility to prevent men from being tempted. If she takes off her hijab, she is inviting them to be tempted. And that’s tantamount to prostitution, in the Sharia-wracked minds of Khamenei and Rouhani. “Women protesting against wearing the hijab in Iran will be […]

A 32-year-old Syrian man appeared on German media this week thanking German Chancellor Angela Merkel for allowing him to reunite with his other wife and children despite polygamy being illegal in Germany. There is nothing new about this, as the West sinks further. Western taxpayers have been putting out money for polygamy for some time. […]
Sexual assault occurs in all cultures, but only in Islam does it have divine sanction. The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and […]
What are the chances that this couple — and their children — will assimilate, adopt Western values, and become loyal, stable, productive members of Belgian society? Right, there is no chance of that whatsoever. And how many more Muslim migrants are there just like this couple in Belgium already, with many more on the way? […]
“Images of the ISIS flag were then sent to the FBI for analysis.” Considering that the FBI wouldn’t know jihad terrorism from a hole in the ground, that isn’t exactly reassuring. “[B]ased on information we received from the FBI we do not believe this act was perpetrated by someone linked to the Islamic State,” Hurricane […]
At least they admit it. The bio tag for this Washington Post article (thanks to Darcy) reads: “Ismail Royer is an American convert to Islam and a research and program associate at the Religious Freedom Institute, a D.C. nonprofit organization. He served 13 years in federal prison for terrorism-related charges. Since his release, he has worked in […]
Tamerlan Tsarnaev was the Boston Marathon jihad bomber. He had vowed to die for Islam. His brother and accomplice, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, said that his brother carried out the Boston jihad attack because he wanted to defend Islam. Omar Mateen was the Pulse Nightclub jihad mass murderer. He said on 911 calls that he made during pauses in committing his […]
“I can’t see the Foreign Office promoting Christianity or the handing out of crosses.” Indeed. In the shattered, staggering, dhimmi UK, only Islam gets this fawning treatment. And it’s particularly despicable this year, for while non-Muslim women in the UK Foreign Office were donning hijabs in solidarity with hijabbed Muslimas, reinforcing the false claim that […]
Narges Hosseini is an actual feminist. Where are the feminists of the West speaking up for her right not to wear the hijab? Linda Sarsour? Anyone? Women such as Narges Hosseini and Vida Movahed deserve the wholehearted support of all free people. That they do not receive it from the supposedly feminist Left reveals the […]
Afghanistan has provided what it claims to be proof to Islamabad that the Islamic State and Taliban attackers who killed about 200 people on Afghan soil over the last month trained and planned the assaults in Pakistan. Pakistan has long provided a safe haven to the Taliban and other jihadist and criminal organisations, leading President Trump […]
