Boko Haram and the Jihad in Africa

The #BringBackOurGirls Twitter hashtag — online activism about the plight of girls abducted by Boko Haram terrorists in Nigeria — has been embraced by numerous celebrities, including Alyssa Milano. This situation has gained worldwide attention and highlights a reality that American media have in recent years deliberately ignored: The persistent menace of violent Islamic jihad […]

What Kind of ‘Militants’ Are They?

Probably radical Lutherans, I’d guess: For two weeks, retired teacher Samson Dawah prayed for news of his niece Saratu, who was among more than 230 schoolgirls snatched by Boko Haram militants in the north-eastern Nigerian village of Chibok. Then on Monday the agonising silence was broken. When Dawah called together his extended family members to […]

Shocking: Brandeis Feminist Faculty Led Petition Against Aayan Hirsi Ali

The wretched cowardice of Brandeis University in rescinding an honorary degree for human rights activist Aayan Hirsi Ali surprised a lot of people. A victim of female genital mutilation (FGM), Ali was the target of terroristic threats in the Netherlands for speaking out against Islamic oppression of women. The question was asked, “Where’s the feminist […]

Professor Herf Gets It Right

Earlier this week, we noted Brandeis University’s cowardly surrender to the forces of political correctness (or perhaps, creeping Sharia). The president of Brandeis gets an earful from Jeffrey Herf, a University of Maryland history professor with a Ph.D. from Brandeis: That the president of a university founded by Jews in the immediate aftermath of the […]

Does #LGBT Care About a Religious Extremist Burning a Gay Bar?

Apparently not, if the religious extremist is named Musab Musmari, who police say “poured gasoline on a carpeted stairway and set it ablaze” inside Seattle’s “popular gay nightclub” Neighbours on New Year’s Eve, when 750 people were inside the club. The gay-rights movement in America is entirely owned by the Democrat Party, and is therefore […]

Islam’s Terrorist African Caliphate

Will America stand idle while this happens? Islamist militants stormed a village in remote northeast Nigeria on Monday, torching houses and spraying them with bullets in an attack that killed 18 people, witnesses said. The latest Boko Haram assault, on Sunday night, came hours before Nigeria’s four top military chiefs handed over to fresh commanders […]

This Was Probably Predictable

Ace of Spades: American troops spilled their guts fighting Al Qaeda in Fallujah in 2004. And now, AQ has driven out all representatives of the Iraqi government and raised its flag over government buildings. Like nature, Islamic extremism abhors a vacuum: Black-clad Sunni militants of Al Qaeda destroyed the Falluja Police Headquarters and mayor’s office, […]

‘U.S. Hate Preacher’?

When I saw that phrase in a headline, I at first thought they were talking about Phil Robertson, but no, it refers to Harlem-born Islamic extremist Khalid Yasin, whose hateful doctrine inspired Michael Adebowale, one of the perpetrators of the Woolwich Massacre. The article points out that Khalid Yasin preaches hatred toward homosexuals, in addition […]
