Tweet Just the facts, and you get to reach your own conclusion: Huma Abedin spent her formative years in Saudi Arabia. Huma’s mother is a member of the female branch of the Muslim Brotherhood While Huma was growing up, her father was a member of an organization closely linked to the Muslim Brotherhood. Huma’s brother [...]

Tweet In the wake of Weinergate, a lot of people were pointing out that Weiner left himself open to some serious blackmail. Given the fact that he’s not a fishmonger but is, instead, a member of Congress, the blackmail implications affect all of us. It turns out, though, that this may be the least of [...]
Tweet Both the SEALS and Charlie Sheen have been in the news lately, the SEALS for an extraordinarily well-planned, brave and effective operation, and Charlie Sheen because he’s a drugged-out piece of human detritus. Did you know, though, that the two — that is, the SEALS and Sheen — have something in common? Yup, they [...]
Tweet In the preceding post, I gave you Geert Wilders’ entire speech about the threat Islam poses to the West. I now offer you living evidence of the threat he describes.
Tweet Everyone should read this speech. Everyone. While the media swooned about Obama’s Cairo speech (in which he lauded veiling women and ignored thousands of years of Jewish ties to Israel), and Obama’s race speech (in which he insulted white people), and Obama’s recent immigration speech (in which he demonized people who fear the risks [...]
Tweet Here’s why I think the Obama-bots disposed of bin Laden’s body so quickly: because they were so paralyzed by multiculturalism, all they could think of was the Islamic imperative to bury the body within 24 hours. That’s it. I don’t think they thought beyond PC. Here’s the problem: My husband got his hair cut [...]
Tweet “Fathers shall not be put to death because of their children, nor shall children be put to death because of their fathers. Each one shall be put to death for his own sin.” — Deuteronomy, 24:16. One of the things that always struck me as bizarre about old-fashioned Christian antisemitism was how anachronistic it [...]
Tweet A little less than a year ago, after the French enacted the burqa ban that just recently went into effect, I published a post entitled When is a burqa, not a burqa? When it’s a weapon, in which I wrote the following: Because Islamic religious trappings are not about man’s relationship to God but, [...]
Tweet I have been reading and enjoying Leslie Carroll’s Royal Pains: A Rogues’ Gallery of Brats, Brutes, and Bad Seeds. Focusing on Eastern and Western Europe from the 12th century onwards, it’s a brisk walk through royal excesses. Having read about half the book now, I think that “bad seeds” is the operative phrase in [...]
Tweet My sister was cleaning out her closets and found and sent to me an old Life book, The World’s Great Religions (Special Edition for Young Readers), published in 1958. The section on “Customs and Sections in Islam” makes for some interesting reading: Today, most Moslems can afford only one wife and family. Many daughters [...]
Tweet If you’re old enough to have lived through the 1970s, you recognize my post title: Gilda Radner’s famous character Roseanne Roseannadanna would let loose with a foolish tirade, and then wrap it up by saying “It’s always something — if it ain’t one thing, it’s another.” Someone needs to resurrect that character, or at [...]
Tweet Israel as the next Saudia Arabia? According to this article in the Wall Street Journal, Israel’s unusually large and high-quality shale oil reserves may yield as much oil as all of Saudi Arabia’s proven oil reserves. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703806304576242420737584278.html These discoveries are in addition to of Israel’s recently diclosed gas reserves, also anticipated to [...]
Tweet Last week, a story broke that received surprisingly little attention from the MSM: a 14 year old Bangladeshi girl, after first being raped, was then accused of adultery and beaten to death. I say “surprisingly” because, since the women’s lib era, the dominant trope on the Left when it comes to rape is “never [...]
Tweet Actually, it’s not a new face at all — it goes back to Mohammed himself, and his paranoid, resentful rants when the Jews refused to accept him as a prophet. What makes it new is that, thanks to the modern age and the Leftist media, these messages, which used to be confined to backward [...]
Tweet My sister, who is fairly non-political, thinks it’s a dreadful thing that so many Americans think Obama is a Muslim. She was shocked when I suggested that Americans are not alone in this belief. I started with a classic Jewish joke: Sammy gets rich and buys himself a yacht. He shows up at his [...]
Tweet Mark Steyn harmonizes with my thoughts about liberal wars and multiculturalism, and Andy McCarthy gives an in-depth, erudite analysis of something I’ve also pointed out before: the totalitarian statism that ties together the Left and radical Islam.
Tweet My condolences to the family and friends of the two airmen killed in Germany. And my best wishes for a safe and speedy recovery for the two airmen who are seriously wounded. And a plague and a pox on the media which tries so desperately to hide that this was not a random crazy [...]
Tweet I got the following email. I don’t know the essay’s true provenance, but the sentiments expressed are interesting, especially if it did indeed originate in EuropeL ALL EUROPEAN LIFE DIED IN AUSCHWITZ The following is a copy of an article written by Spanish writer Sebastian Vilar Rodriguez and published in a Spanish newspaper on [...]
Tweet I’m reading a thriller written in 1987. The bad guys are Soviet spies. They’re really bad. That was par for the course with Cold War thrillers. H0w many thrillers can you name now that have radical Islamists as the bad guys? I know there are a handful, but usually the bad guys are either [...]
Tweet If you want a good lesson in the depth, breadth and virulence of Muslim antisemitism, Andrew Bostom provides it. Then think long and hard about the fact that the current administration is siding with these Muslims at the United Nations. I’m still struggling to come to terms with the appalling nature of the administration’s [...]
Tweet Your matched set for today: Andy McCarthy writes about the elephant in the liberal living room; namely, Islamic attitudes towards rape: Women are almost always asking for it, especially Western women, and, once having forced an innocent man to give in to his base animal nature, they deserve to be beaten, arguably to death. [...]
Tweet Robert Avrech, at Seraphic Secret, nails the dirty secret underlying all the “democracy” revolutions in the Muslim world. They’re not about individual freedom. They’re about Jew hatred. I saw another link that made precisely the same point and, as soon as (or, rather, if) I track it down, I’ll update this post.
Tweet Let’s think about Israel from the Israeli viewpoint for a minute, shall we? It is, by any standards, an extremely small country. Within its own borders, it is a sophisticated Western-style nation that leads the world in scientific innovation. Its political system is a parliamentary style democratic republic. Although its system isn’t perfect, no [...]
Tweet Pakistan? No. Britain! If the British government, under PM Cameron is serious about cutting down the multiculturalism monster, this is a good place to start. Old multi-culti pieties prevented British institutions from daring to criticize the Muslims amongst them. A serious commitment to Western values would mean cracking down on these child abuse factories.
Tweet The Archbishopric of Canterbury used to be a pretty important job. The guy who held that position, going back to the earliest Middle Ages, was the premier leader of the English church, whether that church gave allegiance to Rome or the British Monarch. The current Archbishop, Rowan Williams is, as best as I can [...]
