FBI Probes Belgian Terrorist Threat

  As I’ve previously explained, Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs first alerted America to the danger of Belgian extremists, and whenever The Flemish Menace™ makes another terrorist attack, it’s important to give Charles credit. Consider the latest news from Pensacola: The F.B.I. was investigating but did not confirm a report that the Saudi trainee […]

His Name Was Mohammed Alshamrani

  If I had to guess, I’d say he’s probably from Belgium: Four people are dead including the suspect after an active shooting incident at a naval base in Pensacola, Florida, police said. The shooter was identified as Mohammed Alshamrani, a Saudi national [oops, I guessed wrong — RSM] and member of the country’s air […]

Public Beheadings in Saudi Arabia

From the headline stack at Drudge: Saudi Arabia teen beheaded just for sending WhatsApp messages about protests… Kingdom puts crucified body on public display…  Executions for sorcerers, homosexuals, mentally ill… Just remember this next time someone tells you Trump is a fascist. On the other hand, imagine how much safer Baltimore or Chicago would be […]

Why Did Fox News and Townhall Scrub the Todd Starnes ‘Saudi National’ Story?

Let me start by saying that I consider the obsession with the “Saudi national” — a student who was questioned after the Boston Marathon bombing — an annoying distraction from the main story of the terrorist act committed by the Brothers Tsarnaev.

Whatever You Do, Don’t Tell Canada: Muslim Women Have Boobies!

Before blogging about this, I first checked Five Feet of Fury to see if the One Good Canadian, Kathy Shaidle, had weighed in. Because she obviously should, and if she had, I would have been obliged to link and quote her. How she could have missed this one, I don’t know. Canadians are in an […]

War With Iran? Cue The Fear!

by Smitty Instapundit relays the Mead: In a recent interview with CBS news anchor Scott Pelley, Panetta said “the United States does not want Iran to develop a nuclear weapon. That’s a red line for us”. He continued: “We will take whatever steps are necessary to stop them”. A nuclear Iran is “unacceptable”. When US […]

Beating Women Drivers?

Strange news from Saudi Arabia: A campaign has been launched on Facebook calling for men to beat Saudi women who drive their cars in a planned protest next month against the ultra-conservative kingdom’s ban on women taking the wheel. The call comes as activists are demanding the release of Manal al-Sharif, a Saudi woman who […]

Obligatory WikiLeaks Apocalypse Post

The biggest headline of the massive 250,000-document dump by Julian Assange’s organization is probably this: Prince Abdullah: Neo-Con Warhawk? Dude. When it turns out Saudi royalty is on the same page with Bill Kristol vis-a-vis the need to bomb Iran, you know Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s regime is in trouble. More seriously: This WikiLeaks dump is extraordinarily damaging to U.S. […]
