Will the Brits Ever Learn, an Armed Citizenry is a Safe Citizenry

A man threw chairs, glasses and bottles at the attackers in an attempt to stop them, according to the Guardian. Apparently, no one at the scene had anything else with which to stop them…. Continue reading

Bombs and Ballots: Intelligence Betrayals Before British Elections

The prevailing atmosphere of Washington, DC, what President Trump calls “the swamp” runs deeper and wider than any have ever imagined. The dysfunctional intelligence community raising its ugly head is becoming the revenge of the swamp monster. In fact, people … Continue reading

The Paradox of “Allahu Akbar” (God is greater)

These inhumane beings who chant “Allahu Akbar” as they slay and burn people alive, who blow up churches and homes, who sell and buy the people God created, who destroy cultures and history believing that they are elevating the god whom they worship, are just a few, misled and misleading who will not escape the judgement of God. A day will come when they will drink of the same cup they have served their victims, and, with the same measure they used for their victims, it will be measured to them, and much more. Continue reading

Will the Future Belong to the West or Islam?

Islamic terrorism has shown no signs of receding. Growing Muslim populations, both at home and in Muslim settlements in the West, and the increase in travel and communications, the infrastructure of globalism, spread it from the most backward to the … Continue reading

Lone Omar and the FBI in Orlando

The American Civil Liberties Union immediately blamed “Christianity” for this horrific murder. Why? It is because Christianity rejects homosexual relations as sinful. Thus, it is allegedly responsible for the massacre in Orlando. ACLU forgot that Judaism is even more stringent on the matter than Christianity. This is as foul an accusation as the disgusting voices (from a preacher in Sacramento, California, to a youth activist in Kazan, the Russian Federation) who rejoice in the slayings of “the sodomites.” The latter are in congruence with the choir in the world of Islam that the gays had it coming. As for the perpetrator, therefore, Omar Mateen is a pure shaheed (martyr) of Allah. Continue reading

Jihad Attack in Orlando

How many Muslims are jihadists, fellow travelers, or sympathetic is not known, but surveys in many different countries indicate the percentage is disturbingly high. Continue reading

Islam is Colonialism, Palestine is Colonialism

There are Muslims in Israel for the same reason that there are Muslims in India. They are the remnants of a Muslim colonial regime that displaced and oppressed the indigenous non-Muslim population. The Muslim conquests and invasions are well-documented. The Muslim settlements fit every historical template of colonialism complete with importing a foreign population and social system that was imposed on the native population. Until they began losing wars to the indigenous Jewish population, the Muslim settlers were not ashamed of their colonial past, they gloried in it. Their historical legacy was based on seizing indigenous sites, appropriating them and renaming them after the new conquerors. Continue reading

Europe’s Security Crisis: From Tolerance to Extremism

In light of all the chaos, one might say that the metaphoric battle of civilizations has reached European soil. But such a statement would be false. There is no battle, as a battle involves two or more sides actively engaged. The only active side in this story is the radicalized, anything but tolerant, threat of Islamic terror, which is ripping into the heart of Europe and putting people of all nations and religions in danger. The other side is the passive European continent, trying to cope with the philosophy of tolerance and to figure out what it may and may not say and do. Europe sleeps and extremists recruit. No, this is no battle. It is suicide. Continue reading

It’s Like Talking About a Different Islam!

Tragically, the most profound answer to the Grand Imam of al-Azhar’s speech in Germany came less than a week later on Tuesday, March 22, when homegrown Islamic terrorists committed yet another of their heinous acts in Europe. This time it took place in Brussels, Belgium, the capital of the European Union and headquarters to NATO. I suggest that Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb return to the Reichstag where he delivered his speech before the Bundestag, and this time, offer an apology. Continue reading

Boris Johnson: Brussels, Brexit and the Uncertain Future of the EU

“Let’s suppose somebody came to us all today, 2016, and said, bonjour, or guten tag, or ciao, we’ve got this brilliant idea for a new project to take all these higgledy-piggledy nations and turn them into a single political unit with a single currency and gradually moving, actually ever more rapidly, towards a single system of government, and you Brits will have to sign up for virtually all of it except the single currency. They would then be told that they would have to give up the right to make their own laws, pay for membership and have no border control. That’s the offer they make to us – a club that wastes our money massively, that subverts democracy in this country, takes away people’s power to elect the people who take the decisions, reduces the competitiveness of the European economy, and all for no real economic benefit. Why would we join such a club today? Why would we join such a woefully unreformed Europe? Would anybody in their right mind join the EU as it is today? I don’t think so.” – Boris Johnson Continue reading

Understanding the Caliphate Curve

What ISIS accomplishes by brute force, the Muslim Brotherhood does by setting up networks of front groups. Both ISIS and the Brotherhood control large Muslim populations. ISIS conquers populations in failed states. The Muslim Brotherhood, however, exercises control over populations in the cities of the West. We could bomb Raqqa, but can we bomb Dearborn, Jersey City or Irvine? Continue reading

The Distance between East and West

The core of the problem is that some of the minorities hold the belief that Western women are sexually loose and are easy to seduce. This way of thinking was expressed by a former Muslim Mufti of Australia, Sheik Tag El Din Al Helaly. Al Helaly once said that women who don’t wear the head scarf, hijab, become like uncovered meat and bring upon themselves the consequences of being attacked. Continue reading

Making Middle-East Oil Obsolete!

Recognizing that oil is a fungible commodity, the solution begins with the United States becoming self-sufficient and independent of Middle East oil supplies. This is not hard to achieve; it can be accomplished by relying on our own oil, along with advanced drilling technology known as fracking. In July of 2014, the Energy Information Administration, EIA, forecast U.S. oil imports could be reduced to zero by 2037. Continue reading

Muslim Immigration is What ISIS Wants

ISIS can’t defeat us with terror attacks. The only hope for an enduring Islamic victory over America is through the rise of domestic groups that pledge allegiance to the Caliphate. ISIS can’t invade America. It has to be invited in. That’s what our immigration policy does. Trump isn’t a threat to national security. Muslim immigration is. Muslim immigration is the Islamic State’s only hope for victory over America. Continue reading

Trump and 9/11: Seen or Unseen, There Are Those Who Want to See America Fall

Trump’s memory may well be wrong on details of what he saw or heard on television news reports over 14 years ago. That is the flaw in Trump’s extemporaneous style. But his larger point, that there are among us people who hate America and want to see it fall, is indisputably true and should remind us to be on our guard at all times against their actions and influence. Continue reading

Extinguishing Christianity from the Middle East

It is clear that the European refugee crisis is bringing to the surface inherent problems such as the difficulty of tracking migration and dealing with transnational crimes across open borders. It also raises the issue of the limitation of state sovereignty and the centralization of power. Arguably, the EU is unable to meet the needs of its culturally, politically and economically diverse nations. Such issues might prove a risk to EU unity. Post-Paris, it is obvious now the Middle East’s strife is no longer its own. Continue reading

The Death of Europe: Is Paris the New Normal?

The European values that require Europe to commit suicide are about ideology, not language, culture or nationhood. But the incoming migrants don’t share that ideology. They have their own Islamic values. The Muslim migrants who are meant to be the retirement plan for an aging Europe are supposed to keep its ramshackle collection of economic policies, its welfare states and social programs rolling along. But they’re more like a final solution. Continue reading

Gad and Arshad: A tale of two young men from two different worlds

What would happen if Gad and Arshad switched places? If Gad, the Coptic Christian, were to live and work in London, while Arshad, the Pakistani Muslim man, were to live and work in Upper Egypt? The question arises, would both experience the same problems and rewards as they do today? My answer is that they clearly would not, since it is the community with its values and ideals that makes all the difference. Continue reading

Obama’s Moral Equivalence Nonsense

“And lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.” – President Barack Hussein Obama

2015: A Much Darker Crystal Ball

The Middle East will remain a boiling cauldron as both al-Qaeda and ISIS continue their wars for territory and subjugation in Syria and Iraq, while targeting Saudi Arabia. Both groups are casting their eyes on other parts of the Middle East with Jordan and, ultimately, Saudi Arabia coming in their cross-hairs.

The Kurds and the Question of ‘Kurdistan’

The Kurds are one of the most ancient peoples of the Middle East. They are of Indo-European origin and occupy a huge land area currently divided among Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria. Numbering close to 30 million people, they represent one of the largest Middle Eastern nationalities. Yet, they do not have their own country.

Implications of Ending the Cuban Embargo

Foreign investors cannot hire, fire, or pay Cuban workers directly. They must go through the government employment agency which selects the workers. Investors pay the Cuban government in dollars or euros and the government, in turn, pays the workers a meager 10% in Cuban pesos. Corruption is pervasive, undermining equity and respect for the rule of law.

The Coming Caliphate: ISIS Maps its Five-to-Ten Year Master Plan

In growing numbers, citizens of Western countries are leaving their homes to fight alongside jihadists of the Islamic State (IS), formerly known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). In the U.S., Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel stated in a recent CNN interview, “We are aware of over 100 U.S. citizens who have U.S. passports who are fighting in the Middle East with [ISIS] forces. There may be more; we don’t know.” Some cities in the United States are facing serious problems.

Wake Up! Hamas is as Threatening as ISIS

Defenders of Hamas on the Left claim the terrorist organization merely wants to lift the blockade over Gaza, providing full freedom for the Palestinians to live in peace there. But even Hamas admits that is not enough.

Yes, We Are the Noon (N) People

Where is America led by President Obama? You, Mr. President, have surrounded yourself with advisors loyal to the International Muslim Brotherhood. You have spent billions of American tax-payer dollars to support them. You spoke strongly on their behalf every time you felt that their rights were in jeopardy. Why can’t we see you offer the same support to the Christians of Mosul? Noon is the Arabic letter that represents…

The Destruction of Christian Memory in the Middle East

“Those families leaving from the checkpoints on the eastern side of the city were harassed and robbed of their possessions […] All families who fled on the last morning reported having money, belongings, jewelry, and even documents stolen from them. Women had crucifixes torn from their necks.” The Daily Beast
