What good is a watch list if no one is watching the people on it? Or are there just too many for French authorities to keep track of them all? The latter is a stated goal of the Islamic State: to overwhelm Western police and intelligence apparatuses, until they collapse. They’re well on their way […]

The Charlemagne prize. What a joke. The real Charlemagne opposed the jihad, as you can discover in my new book The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS (click here to preorder). Merkel and Macron are the heralds of the death of Europe, not its survival. “Macron, Merkel Call for ‘Full Force’ EU Integration, Vow Brussels Won’t […]
The Geller Report brought you the story on Thursday: according to The College Fix, “a Catholic university in Davenport, Iowa recently opened a prayer space dedicated to Islamic worship…The prayer room, developed by a senior of St. Ambrose University in collaboration with its Saudi Student Association, is designed ‘specifically for students of the Islamic faith.’” The room […]
Amatul-Wadud is a “board member for the Massachusetts Council of American-Islamic Relations.” CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR officials have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s co-founder and longtime […]
Border Patrol agents in the Laredo Sector are sounding the alarm after they recently apprehended two Syrian nationals who illegally crossed the border from Mexico into South Texas. The agents say the arrest of the Syrians confirms there is a human smuggling pipeline from countries with connections to terrorism into the U.S. This is not […]
This ridiculous article in UCLA’s student newspaper, The Daily Bruin, reveals the mindset of those who believe that “Islamophobia” is a bigger threat than jihad terror. Does the U.S. face a jihad threat today? Obviously it does. Do many of these jihadis wear traditional Islamic garb and scream “Allahu akbar” when attacking? Once again, that […]
In the video, the reporter says the Nabizadah had previously threatened to kill his wife. Nabizadah was likely raised in a culture of violence that calls for the beating of disobedient women. Once that is allowed, then any level of violence can be seen to be acceptable. The Qur’an says: “Men have authority over women […]
The draft law speaks only about criticizing “religion,” but everyone knows which religion is meant. No one is going to go to prison for criticizing Christianity or Judaism. This is more of Britain’s gallop toward Sharia and ruin. “UK Proposes Six Year Prison Sentences for Online Posts Against Religion, Transgender,” by Liam Deacon, Breitbart, May 10, […]
Brietta Brown sounds as if she could be legitimately mentally ill, unless she was practicing a bit of the old “war is deceit” game, but in any case, apparently somewhere along the way she picked up the instructions: “When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks…” (Qur’an 47:4) “Police report describes footage of woman slashing […]
This is a strategic alliance that Russia is likely to come to regret. Historically, Islamic states don’t willingly enter into partnerships with Infidels that redound to the benefit of those Infidels. There are abundant examples this in my forthcoming book, The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS, which you can preorder here now. “Russia Starts Advanced Construction […]
