Stop Them Before they Kill Again

Democracies never get it quite right, always responding to tyrannies too late.  In 1936, Nazi troops crossing into the Rhineland had secret orders to retreat at the slightest sign of resistance; but it was only Hitler’s first land grab so we let it go.

It is the time for testing

Lawmakers in Washington need to be alarmed and alert as they consider the nominee to be the next attorney general.

Multiculturalism Exposes the US to Terrorism

The people of the United States, for all practical purposes, like to believe we are fair-minded. We believe that everyone should get a fair shot. Most of us believe that if you work hard you should get ahead. Many of us have even embraced the ever advancing multiculturalism counter-culture, which is completely antithetical to the concept of E Pluribus Unum; “Out of many, one.” With regard to the latter, vindication has come to those of us who believe we are fair-minded while being opposed to the “Balkanization” the United States.

One of the Good Muslim Groups

The clash of civilizations is in full swing between Islam and the Democratic west and one of the things that many on the anti-jihadi side of the argument are wont to say, those who use the term Islamofascism commonly, is that there aren’t any “moderate” Muslim groups out there.

Al Taqiyya: The Islamist Terrorist’s Weapon of Deception

Western civilization’s delinquent knowledge of the Islamic faith leaves us naive to many of its tenets. Many among us would be hard pressed to explain the differences between the Sunni and the Shi’ite, let alone the reasons why they have remained in conflict for almost the entire existence of the Islamic faith. This delinquency in understanding Islamic culture and doctrine makes those they consider non-believers—or kafirs—vulnerable both individually and collectively. This is especially true when we examine the Islamic concept of taqiyya.
