He was ordered expelled from Hungary after being caught with forged documents on December 30, but he was detained on Friday, so clearly he didn’t leave after he was expelled.

There has been hostility to the Catholic Church in France for centuries, but this kind of thing did not happen. Could it have anything to do with the introduction into France of a large population of people who believe that Christianity is a false religion and that they are commanded to fight unbelievers so that […]
“There’s not an unlimited right to freedom of expression or free speech. There are limitations and there’s a balance that needs to be done.” If there are any limits to the freedom of speech other than prohibitions on open calls for violence and criminal activity, then there is no freedom of speech at all. And […]
Trump is right. The Golan Heights is indeed “of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and Regional Stability!” Syrian soldiers used to stand on the heights and shoot down at Israeli farmers below. Only Israel is denied the right of conquest that has been universally recognized throughout human history: when a […]
“A 53-year-old Moroccan man who tried to run over his 22-year-old daughter near Vercelli because she lived ‘western-style’ on Monday said ‘I’ve never laid hands on my daughter, I’m strict but I do it for my children’s good.’ El Mustafa Hayan was arrested on charges of attempted murder.” So much for the freedom of women […]

His remarks at a March 6 rally before the Supreme Court in Washington, DC, indicated how these anti-Semitic legislators are effectively immune from rebuke among increasingly radical Democrats. By contrast, […]
“British Labour MP Kate Hoey has condemned the mainstream media for ignoring the ‘slaughter’ of over 100 Christians in Nigeria by Muslim militants over the past three weeks.” Hoey is correct. “Her criticism comes after Western networks and publishers have given extensive coverage to the murder of 50 Muslim worshippers who were gunned down in […]
“Despite 9/11, the US still is still unable to tackle the Islamic threat in the country, an investigative journalist and expert on Arab affairs warns. Exactly what happened in the mosques in France 15 years ago is happening today in the U.S.” “Incitement to genocide of Jews widespread inside US mosques,” but to call it […]
The Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and its allies have for years been trying to shut down all opposition to jihad violence and Sharia oppression of women, gays, and others. They have succeeded in fooling many people into thinking that it is “bigotry” and “racism” to oppose jihad terror, and have made those who […]
