Two men released from the US “war on terror” prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba have appeared in a video posted on a jihadist website, the SITE monitoring service reported.
One of the two former inmates, a Saudi man identified as Abu Sufyan al-Azdi al-Shahri, or prisoner number 372, has been elevated to the senior ranks of Al-Qaeda in Yemen, a US counter-terrorism official told AFP. [Read more…]

Those who would eliminate Christianity from public life are sawing off the branch they are sitting on.
September 11 the whole nation paused to remember the 3,000 innocent victims of 9/11 murdered by Islamist terrorists, and to be grateful for those who gave their lives to rescue others—everybody, that is, except the Freedom From Religion Foundation in Madison, Wisconsin. It spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on Sept.9 for a full-page propaganda ad in the New York Times—an ad that blamed religion for the horrors of September 11. [Read more…]

At least 900 Christian families have fled Mosul in the past week, terrified by a series of killings and threats by Muslim extremists ordering them to convert to Islam or face possible death, officials said Saturday.
The attacks may have been prompted by Christian demonstrations ahead of provincial elections, which are to be held by the end of January, the deputy governor of Nineveh province said. [Read more…]

The latest audio message from al-Qaeda, reportedly from Osama bin Laden himself, is only the most recent confirmation that the jihadist threat to the West remains real and deadly serious. But the fact that it could take the form of nuclear terrorism should be most worrying to citizens and policy makers alike.
Where a nuclear attack once may have been beyond the capacities of stateless terrorists, that is no longer the case. One need only consider Khalid Sheik Mohammed (KSM), mastermind of 9/11 and chief operating officer of al-Qaeda, who revealed under intensive interrogation — including the much-maligned tactic of waterboarding — that a nuclear attack against the United States was a top priority for al-Qaeda.

Two women suicide bombers who have killed nearly 80 people in Baghdad were Down’s Syndrome victims exploited by al Qaida. The explosives were detonated by remote control in a co-ordinated attack after the women walked into separate crowded markets, said the chief Iraqi military spokesman in Baghdad General Qassim al-Moussawi.

The cultural traditions and values of American society originate from the Judeo-Christian heritage of our Founding Fathers. They pledged allegiance to “one nation under God,” with the Creator as the source of our inalienable civil rights and liberties. In that spirit, Congressional invocations by clergy are a time-honored ritual from the birth of the American republic to the present. Public recognition and celebrations of the role of religion in helping establish our precious freedoms have also long been part of American public life. But now, those traditions are under attack from militant Islamists who have, under the guise of political and religious acceptance, steadily advanced their own messages with the goal of undermining our status as a nation of free individuals and the intent of the Founders to insure liberty and justice for all.

A pertinent question for 2008 might be: How many 9/11’s does it take to wake a sleeping giant and keep him alert at the helm?More than one, it would seem.
How quickly America has been lulled back to sleep. With a heap of help from our watchful media. [Read more…]

A nation’s cultural space is marked by its spiritual fruits and not by the frontier posts. It is possible to maintain a cultural space devoid of territory (the Jews). It is also possible to lose that space under the auspices of an ostensibly functioning state—and nominally still a nation-state at that!—as is happening in today’s Western Europe. The Serbs are currently facing an ongoing reduction of their physical space to the point where the reliquiae reliquiarum of their demographically exhausted state will comprise only those lands on which nobody else can establish any kind of claim.

A few weeks ago a meeting occurred between Iranian mullahs and assorted international left-wing figures in hopes of generating some sort of “revolutionary solidarity”. The guests of honor were the children of Che Guevera, Aleida and Camilo. The attempt ended in unintentional comedy when one of the mullahs present began to praise Che for his hatred for the Soviet Union, his loathing of socialism and communism, and his “godliness”.
When Aleida Guevara protested, the Iranians threw both her and her brother out, and the affair fell apart.
This isn’t the first time the Iranians have attempted a hookup with the international left. Ahmadenijad has been visited recently by both Hugo Chavez and Daniel Ortega. The results were not all that more impressive than those of the conference, Chavez being a clown and Danny Ortega’s glory days long behind him, despite his recent presidential victory. But it does clearly show how seriously the Iranians take the Western left, and how much they would value a relationship.

After the rancor which occurred the previous night at Emory University, organizers warned the audience for David Horowitz’s speech at George Washington University that those who engaged in disruptions of any kind would be escorted out of the auditorium by police. Sergio Gor, the president of the Young America’s Foundation (YAF) which hosted “Islamofascism Awareness Week,” a Terrorism Awareness Project sponsored by the David Horowitz Freedom Center, commented that while those in the audience might disagree with Horowitz, academic freedom demands that speakers expose students to differing viewpoints.
With a bodyguard in the backdrop and police officers surrounding the packed audience, David Horowitz commenced his speech by discussing the phony Muslim hate flyers that had appeared on GWU campus in recent weeks. He declared that across institutions of higher education, there is a campaign against conservatives, which he likened to a lynch mob. Those who had posted flyers that read “Hate Muslims? So Do We!!” and falsely attributed them to YAF intended to identify YAF members as racist and make them targets of a backlash. He observed that whenever someone disagrees with the Left, he is labeled as racist, sexist, homophobic, or anti-Islamic – words designed to shut down debate. The university administration promised harsh punishment for those who posted the flyers, but once it was discovered that seven leftist students were the perpetrators, the university never called the students to account, as far as can be discerned.
