“All White Women are ***** and Deserve to be Raped”: The West Adopts Islam’s Perspective?

American Thinker European women are to blame for being raped by Muslim men.  Such is the latest position—the latest apologia—being offered by those dedicated to exonerating undesirable Muslim behavior, particularly in the context of welcoming more Muslim migrants into the West. On October 14, seven Muslim migrants raped a teenage German girl in a park, […]

How Saudi ‘Donations’ to American Universities Whitewash Islam

Gatestone Institute  Why would the center of illiberalism, religious fanaticism, and misogyny ever sponsor the center of liberalism, secularism, and gender equality? This is the question that crops up when one considers the largesse that human-rights-abusing Saudi Arabia bestows on the leading universities — those putative bastions of progressive, free thinking — in the United […]

Canada Upholds Allah/Muhammad’s Ban on Adoption

PJ Media Many in the West were shocked to learn that, in recently ruling that criticism of Muhammad is tantamount to incitement to hatred and thus not protected free speech, the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) had effectively adopted Islamic Sharia’s ban on free speech — a formerly prized and zealously guarded Western right. The greater […]

‘Doormat Christianity’ and the Islamic Invasion

PJ Media A Catholic archbishop recently touched on an unspoken but highly subversive phenomenon: How anti-Christian forces exploit Christian teachings to empower those who seek to dismantle Christian civilization, Muslims being chief among them.

Asia Bibi and 1,400 Years of Muhammad ‘Blasphemers’

PJ Media “Hang the infidel” is the cry emanating from thousands of Muslim throats in Pakistan. The reason: Asia Bibi, a Christian woman accused of insulting Islam’s prophet Muhammad, has apparently not suffered enough. As the married mother of five wrote in her smuggled memoirs: “I’ve been locked up, handcuffed and chained, banished from the world […]

Palestinian Authority’s Top Cleric: Jerusalem Is Eternal Jihad’s Greatest Prize

Regular refugee numbers don’t tell the whole story; thousands of Afghans getting in to US each year in separate program

They are called Special Immigrant Visa holders (SIVs for short) and they supposedly helped the US in some way (or they could have helped an NGO!), sometimes as interpreters.  They and their immediate family members are welcomed to the US and treated with the same package of goodies refugees receive.

Also, we are told that the resettlement contractors are paid (by you) to place them as well, and those funds we’ve heard are helping to keep the contractors from completely going belly-up!

(See my post yesterday about the number of regular refugees admitted this fiscal year, the number is relatively low, but the SIV number is not! 2,196 Muslims were admitted as regular refugees, but add to that 9,166 Afghan Muslims in the last 11 months!)

 

Nato commander

Yesterday US General Austin Miller took over NATO command in Afghanistan.  We have been there for 17 years. Here is what I want to know? If we continue to bring to America the tens of thousands of Afghans who willingly helped us, won’t only the worst of the worst be left in the country?      http://www.foxnews.com/world/2018/09/02/us-general-assumes-nato-command-in-afghanistan.html

How Islam Apologists Like John Esposito Dupe Americans About Sharia

PJ Media Does Islam itself promote hostility for and violence against non-Muslims, or are all the difficulties between the West and Islam based on secondary factors—from “radical” interpretations of Islam, to economics and grievances? This is the fundamental question. Obviously, if “anti-infidel” hostility is inherent to Islam itself, then the conflict becomes existential—a true clash […]

The Folly of Multiculturalism

PJ Media Exactly how beneficial to a society is multiculturalism, this word that is so celebrated in the West? First one must define the word: It is “the view that cultures, races, and ethnicities, particularly those of minority groups, deserve special acknowledgement of their differences within a dominant political culture.” Note the immediate inaccuracies within this standard definition. “Races,” which indicate a […]

Popularity of the Name ‘Muhammad’ in Europe Is an Element of Jihad

PJ Media Muhammad is slowly gaining ground against the infidels — and in their own homelands. As one recent report notes, the German city of Bremen is the first in the country for which it is the most popular name for newborn boys. It’s the same in other Western European cities. “Mohammed [is the] most popular name […]

“Go to Hell!” Egypt Responds to French Call to Revise Koran

PJ Media Recently I explained how, by Muslims’ own (inadvertent) logic, various Koran verses stand to be banned on the basis that they defame and incite violence against non-Muslims.

The Tired Lies of Taqiyya

FrontPage Magazine Attempts to whitewash the Islamic doctrine of taqiyya are becoming redundantly desperate. Consider BuzzFeed’s recent, “‘Taqiyya’: How An Obscure Islamic Concept Became An Obsession Of Anti-Muslim Activists.”  It offers the same claims and defenses that have been repeatedly discredited. After quoting  Ezra Levant, founder of The Rebel Media, saying that taqiyya “means deliberate […]
