    Theresa May’s government has admitted that “a significant portion” of the more than 400 Islamic State fighters who have returned to Britain are at large, unpunished, having been deemed “no longer of national security concern”. The admission came in response to a question in the House of Commons by Labour MP John Woodcock, who demanded to know why the Government is refusing to release figures on the number of returned jihadists being prosecuted, despite having previously provided them. “Are more than 400 of those returning individuals in jail or going through the court system? We simply do not know, because...
  • How campus politics hijacked American politics

    The defense of free speech has always been a bedrock bipartisan principle. So it’s unusual to hear a veteran liberal politician excuse campus outrage squads that shout down dissent. But that’s exactly what former Vermont governor and Democratic National Committee head Howard Dean did in a recent appearance.. Dean’s take on this was that there are “consequences to free speech.” He caricatured Erika Christakis’s thoughtful, sensitive letter as an ugly screed mocking “snowflake” students and defending racist costumes. He also described the protesters as well-behaved, despite their screaming and bullying. ... Dean is hardly alone...progressives on and off campus are...

    A U.S. Air Force B-52 Stratofortress, America’s longest-serving bomber, set a new record for the most smart bombs dropped on the Taliban in Afghanistan, the U.S. Forces-Afghanistan revealed Tuesday. Shattering the previous record set in November, the American bomber dropped 24 precision-guided munitions during a 96-hour air campaign against Taliban training and narcotics facilities in Afghanistan, Fox News reports. The conventional rotary configuration on board allows the B-52s to easily unleash hell on the terrorists. “The Taliban have nowhere to hide,” Gen. John Nicholson, the unit commander, reportedly said in a statement. “There will be no safe haven for any...

    China is reportedly moving missile defense batteries and troops closer to its border with North Korea, a potential sign that Beijing anticipates either a large refugee wave north or a military disturbance triggered by the belligerence of communist dictator Kim Jong-un. The South Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo cited Radio Free Asia (RFA) in a report Monday, stating that RFA had compiled evidence that China had “late last year deployed another missile defense battery at an armored division in Helong, west of Longjing in the Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture.” The “North Korean source in China” speaking to RFA also noted that...

    If the Kennedys were brave and bold, they would choose President Donald Trump as the 2018 recipient of the JFK Profiles in Courage Award. It won’t happen, of course, but it should. Right now, the Kennedy Foundation is soliciting nominations on the internet which no doubt will be filed and ignored. The award is the annual prize given to a public person, often a politician, who risked everything in pursuit of the greater good of the country. If that doesn’t fit Trump, then nothing does. The award is named after the title of the book, Profiles in Courage, written by...

    Muslims in China are being rounded up and forced into political education camps that resemble the prisons ubiquitous in the country during the repressive Maoist era, according to reports. More than 100,000 Uyghur Muslims are estimated to be detained in so-called “re-education” centers in China’s Western Xinjiang region, according to human rights groups. Tens of thousands of people are allegedly detained in the city of Kashgar alone. The facilities are reportedly squalid and overcrowded, and inmates are forced to sing songs praising the Chinese Communist Party and renounce their religious beliefs.

    Islam is “not a religion of hate,” Jordan’s King Abdullah said in a recent interview, arguing that there was perhaps a “lack of understanding” of the religion in Washington. CNN’s Fareed Zakaria asked Abdullah — in an interview filmed in Davos last month but aired on Sunday — about President Trump’s stated view during the 2016 election campaign that “I think Islam hates us.” “By ‘us,’ I think he meant America,” Zakaria said. “In your conversations with President Trump, have you tried to persuade him that that was not the case?” “Absolutely, to all Americans,” Abdullah replied. “And whether I’m...

    Organizations financed by billionaire George Soros, a champion of open border policies, have been leading the opposition here to Israel’s decision to enforce its law by seeking to deport illegal African migrant infiltrators.Israel on Sunday announced it will begin issuing deportation notices to men without children who arrived illegally from Eritrea and Sudan largely seeking work. The move is the first stage of an Israeli government plan to enact a Knesset-approved Infiltrator’s Bill, which allows the country to forcibly deport illegal infiltrators, with exceptions for children, the elderly, parents of dependent minors, those with refugee applications pending and victims of slavery...

    An Islamic jihadist wearing a hood was led to a location where he was confronted by a Yazidi woman who was sold into sex slavery after ISIS invaded her home town of Sinjar. The meeting was set up for a new BBC documentary called Face to Face with ISIS, hosted by Stacey Dooley. The ISIS fighter, called Anmar, was with the terrorist group when they invaded the town. He had three sex slaves of his own; however the woman in the documentary, Shireen, wasn’t one of them. According to the Daily Mail, Shireen was raped repeatedly by a jihadist while...
  • Iran ‘Mass Producing’ Drones Strapped with Smart Bombs

    Iran announced on Monday that it has begun mass-producing a new weaponized drone that carries smart bombs capable of precision strikes, according to the Islamic Republic's military leaders. Iran, which has engaged in a massive military buildup since receiving billions of dollars in cash windfalls as a result of the landmark nuclear deal, says that these advanced new drones will be delivered to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps, or IRGC, which has been coordinating war efforts across the Middle East, including most controversially in Syria, where Iranian-backed forces have attacked U.S. troops.

    New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) is calling on Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg to take immediate action on Facebook’s “shameful” exclusion of Israel. When creating a background profile on Facebook, users are given 50 nationality options. These options include Palestine, while Israel is conspicuously absent. “Palestine is not even a country,” said Hikind. “How did it end up as an option? Well, we all know the answer to that. I suspect some racist programmer was able to slip that by while purposefully excluding Israel as an option. That’s insulting and Facebook should be held accountable."

    The Palestinian Authority said Monday that Greenblatt’s efforts to achieve peace between the Palestinians and Israel “have no chances of succeeding.” The Palestinians are particularly angered at what they believe is a US effort to replace the current leadership of the PA. Greenblatt, in a speech before the annual conference of the Institute for National Strategic Studies, said that the United States “is as committed as ever to reaching an agreement that guarantees a peaceful, prosperous future for both Israelis and Palestinians. That’s why this administration continues to work on developing a peace plan that can bring both parties to...

    The New York Times is reporting that there is a "secret alliance" between Egypt and Israel to combat ISIS along the Sinai border between the two countries.The report claims that Israel has flown more than 100 missions in the last two years, striking targets in the terrorists' stronghold in Egypt with the full knowledge and cooperation of Cairo's government. Egypt appeared unable to stop them, so Israel, alarmed at the threat just over the border, took action. For more than two years, unmarked Israeli drones, helicopters and jets have carried out a covert air campaign, conducting more than 100...

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government is offering the migrants, most of whom are from Sudan and Eritrea, $3,500 and a plane ticket to what it says is a safe destination in another country in sub-Saharan Africa.

    As Canada continues to support and implement Sharia Law, as well as slam its opponents by calling them "Islamophobes," a deeper look into what Sharia Law entails is in order. Recently, the Canadian government's Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage completed a draft of its Motion M-103 report, which recognizes "the need to...condemn Islamophobia" and "take action" against "religious discrimination including Islamophobia." According to the Ontario Human Rights Commission Islamophobia includes "acts of intolerance and racial profiling" as well as "viewing Muslims as a greater security threat on an institutional, systemic and societal level." However, it is not clear that Canada's...

    From the moment President Trump took office, many Democrat politicians, celebrities, and media mavens have worked to stop anything Trump. Democrats, hoping to capitalize on the anti-Trump excitement in their base, staged a coordinated "Summer of Resistance" across the country aimed at countering the agenda of President Trump and the GOP-led Congress. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi kicked off the effort at a rally in Dallas saying, "This Trump complained, “I hope that Democrats will stop the obstruction and resistance – in fact that’s what they have, they have a sign ‘resist, resist’ - they want to resist everything,...

    To understand the development of Islam in Western countries, I make a habit of visiting Muslim-majority areas such as Lakemba in Australia, Lodi in California, and Lunel in France. But London, England, is unique in the extent of its Islamic impress. Muslim-majority areas typically consist of poor, unattractive housing projects, remote from the city center, which long ago were abandoned by their original indigenous, working-class populations. They often feature men sitting around cafes and women cooped up at home. They suffer from a range of social pathologies, including unemployment, criminal gangs, and drug-trafficking. London too has such areas, and they...

    Former IDF Southern Command Commander Yom Tov Samia rejected the claims that Israel has placed a siege on Gaza. In an interview with Channel 10's "Orly and Guy" program, Samia acknowledged that the situation in Gaza is critical, but said that the area's Hamas leadership are responsible. Hamas receives 650 truckloads of equipment a day, but instead of giving these to the residents, Hamas uses the merchandise for itself, selling it at outrageous prices or using the materials in order to dig terror tunnels. The Hamas terror organization which rules Gaza has firmly rejected the Palestinian Authority's (PA) demand that...

    American Jewish billionaire George Soros denied accusations by Prime Minister Netanyahu blaming him for financing protests against Israel's planned deportation of African migrants. On Sunday, Netanyahu alleged that Soros was behind the series of anti-deportation protests at a cabinet meeting. "George Soros is also funding the protests,” Netanyahu said, telling ministers that former US President Obama "deported two million infiltrators and they didn’t say anything". Netanyahu then shared a link to an article by the conservative Hebrew-language website Mida on his Facebook page which claimed that a Soros-linked organization has raised more than NIS 600,000 to stop the deportations. "This...
