Terrorism and Euphemism

They’re “gunmen” or “extremists” or “militants,” but have you noticed that no one in the media wants to call them “terrorists”? Gunmen have stormed a university in the restive Anbar province west of Baghdad and are holding dozens of students hostage, Iraqi officials said Saturday. Police and army officials say the attack took place Saturday morning […]

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 […]

Totalitarian Terror: Anti-Israel Campus Extremists Target Jewish Students

The New York Times resolutely refused to see a pattern […]

Anti-Israel Extremist @MaxBlumenthal Cited by Overland Park Jew-Killer

Two days after “raging anti-Semite” Frazier Glenn Miller murdered three people at the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park, Kansas, liberal media have suddenly lost interest in Miller’s crime. Donald Douglas explains we need not wonder why: Legal Insurrection points us to the Kansas murder suspect’s posting at [Vanguard News Network], where he extolls far-left […]

Jew-Hater Kills Jews

Three people are dead after a gunman opened fire at a Jewish Community Center in Overland Park, Kansas. Reports indicate that the gunman, Frazier Glenn Miller, was a “raging anti-Semite” who nevertheless had once been invited to speak at Missouri State University by a professor who wanted “to show students what real extremism looks like.” […]

Israel Haters Lose at UCLA

One of the weird consequences of the Bush-era “Global War on Terror” is that it inspired sympathy for terrorists among young progressives, whose reasoning seems to have been: “If Republicans are against terrorists, therefore, terrorists must be victims.” This kind of sympathy for America’s enemies has long been endemic on the far Left, but the […]
