founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hassan Al-Banna made jihadist

"Fighting the unbelievers involves all possible efforts that are
necessary to dismantle the power of the enemies of Islam." The MB

"France has a problem with Islam"
Muslim population of France was approximately 6.5 million in 2016, or
around 10% of the overall population of 66 million. In real terms,
France has the largest Muslim population in the European Union, just
above Germany. What follows is a chronological review of some of the
main stories about the rise of Islam in France during 2016:

and Islam-related issues, omnipresent in Britain during 2016, can be
categorized into five broad themes: 1) Islamic extremism and the
security implications of British jihadists in Syria and Iraq; 2) the
continuing spread of Islamic Sharia law in Britain; 3) the sexual
exploitation of British children by Muslim gangs; 4) Muslim integration
into British society; and 5) the failures of British multiculturalism.

migration from the Muslim world is fast-tracking the Islamization of
Germany, as evidenced by the proliferation of no-go zones, Sharia

responsible for a host of social disruptions, including jihadist
attacks, a migrant rape epidemic, a public health crisis, rising crime
and a rush by German citizens to purchase weapons for self-defense –
and even to abandon Germany altogether.

refugees from Middle Eastern violence, or even Yazidis, who have
suffered horribly from the ravages of Islamic terror. These refugees,
of course, represent no danger to America. Only by admitting those who
do represent a danger can we display to the world “who we are as a
people” – a people willing to sacrifice ourselves to vouchsafe our
commitment to tolerance.
||Islam and the West’s Death by
has often been noted that some among us use our freedoms to destroy our
freedoms. George Soros, a real-life James Bond villain, comes to mind;
other leftist entities such as the ACLU and Southern Poverty Law Center
also qualify, as they sue Americans into shedding Americanism. Another
example is a group they aid and abet: Muslim conquerors bent on winning
the West for Dar al-Islam.
||The Reason That Liberals Hate
Christianity, but Ignore Islam
of the things that’s frustrating for non-liberals and non-Progressives

Christian sects that are crazy ... The fact remains, however, that
Christians as a whole, whether they belong to big churches or small
ones, do not embrace or practice terrorism to achieve their political
or religious goals.
||Why Does Obama Call ISIS 'ISIL'?
who closely follow the dueling Islamic terror narratives emanating from
the White House are mystified by Mr. Obama's inability (or deliberate
unwillingness) to utter the phrase "Islamic terrorists." Many are

insisting instead that everybody in his administration call the terror
group "ISIL." What's the difference, and why is it important?
||New Mantra To Deny Islamic Terror:
“Where does ‘radical Islam’ end and ‘mental illness’ begin?”
“mental illness” the new cover for jihadist attacks on the West? It
certainly seems that way, says a noted expert on jihad. “Authorities
have ascribed jihad terror to mental illness on numerous occasions,”
said Robert Spencer, including the Orlando, San Bernardino and
Chattanooga attacks in the United States. Sometimes it sticks, but
usually, days, weeks or even months later, when few people are still
paying attention, the police will retract their earlier statements and
admit it was a terrorist attack.

convert, enslave or kill the infidel. An infidel is anyone who is not
Muslim or, depending on who’s doing the killing, belongs to a different
sect of Islam. Those who fall into that elusive, perpetually mute
category tagged “moderate Muslim” are also infidels or “idolaters.”
They’re bad Muslims and, so, according to the Quran, not Muslims at all.
||Islam is Not a Religion, It is
time has come to question if Islam is protected under our First
Amendment rights to freedom of religion. Yes, everyone in America has

Religious faith is only a part of Islam. The rest is a socially

conflict with American law.

purpose of jihad is to convert, impoverish or kill all unbelievers. It
is an essential element of the teachings of Mohammad, and cannot simply
be removed from the Koran. Therefore, when are Americans going to take
seriously Islam as a threat and figure out a way to defuse its
dangerous demand to subjugate the world in the name of Allah?
Islamo-Fascism at our Peril
great deal of the problem is that Americans believe that Islam is a
"religion." Historically, it has been a cult of conquest that merges
its belief system with a political agenda in which Sharia law is
intended to be imposed throughout the world. Its early, swift spread
was based on terror and warfare.

A war of half-measures only allow
the enemy to take heart, progressively adopt to our tactics, and
increase his recruiting by bragging that if he has survived an
encounter with the world's "sole remaining superpower," imagine what he
could do with a few thousand more volunteers.
Long Road Ahead
We are in the opening stages of a war, a
Holy War to radical Muslims, soon to be using all the modern weapons of
war, fighting for the very survival of western civilization.
In Their Own Words
It is timely to consider the
meaning and goals of this phenomenon of "Jihad" we've heard so much
about. What does Islam's ideology of Jihad mean in fact? Of the 30
active wars in the world today, 28 are in Islamic nations.
Home of the Scared?
Time for this nation to get over being the
home of the scared and get back to being the home of the brave. We are
Empire of Oil
There are forces at work in our war on
terrorism that have as much to do with insuring that America and the
West has the oil it needs, as they do with protecting this nation
against the more obvious threat of Islamic militancy.
at the Gate
Don't make the mistake of interpreting
the events of Sept. 11 purely in terms of terrorism and murder. There
is a bigger context here. There is more to this story — much more.

America-Haters Take Off Their Masks
They emerge from the basements of their
secret societies, shed the camouflage of the "progressive" label, and

peace-loving Muslims from Islamic extremists.
The 21st century's first war heroes
Brave men do brave things. After Sept. 11
a friend of mine said something that startled me with its simple truth.
He said, 'Everyone died as the person they were.'
U.S. in Wonderland:
A Place Where Enemies Become Allies
how strange is it that the three most obvious allies of the United
States have been pushed to the sidelines of the Bush administration's
grand coalition to fight terrorism, while those who have funded and
supported terrorism are being embraced as the ones to fight it?
Seldom Is Heard
Christians are getting killed by Muslims
all over the world, but America is not supposed to see that. Frankly, I
don't care if they don't like our foreign policy.
||God Is Back
I was thinking the other day: In 1964,
Time Magazine famously headlined "God Is Dead." I hope now, at the very

The Endless Jihad
[Historian] Fregosi characterized Jihad as

right here in the good ol' U.S. of A.
||100 Question and Answers about Arab

Arab Americans are too often described in simplistic terms. Although
