Fighting The Duplicitous Islamic Propaganda Machine

Dear Gabriel, If you or I were a fly on the wall inside the national headquarters of CAIR today (Council on American-Islamic Relations), I have no doubt we would be witnessing a celebration. Anyone who follows CAIR understands that the organization is intent on convincing Americans that Islam is a peaceful religion, that terrorists are just a few "extremists" who do not follow "true" Islam, and that Muslims in America are the constant victims of discrimination, hate, and a massive and organized campaign to falsely smear them. Government statistics don't support the claim that Muslims are frequent, or even occasional,...

Radical Islam's Worldwide War on Liberal Democracies

By Vijay Kumar N SEPTEMBER 11, 2001, a war was brought to our shores by a band of men, bound by a militant ideology, in an act of mass murder. The response by the United States was a so-called "War on Terror," a reflex that has proved to be as ineffective as it has been costly.

Tracking The Paradox Of Tolerance

Just in case some of my friends and foes alike can't figure this out for themselves, here's one of the 20th century's most persuasive philosophers writing against the tide of totalitarian ideologies.

If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against...

N THE PAST SEVEN DAYS, evidence surfaced that the FBI was cutting off its primary contacts with CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations), after CAIR refused to address FBI questions about CAIR's relationship to Hamas (a designated terrorist organization). Then, five members of Congress sent a letter to other members of Congress entitled "Beware of CAIR," citing the evidence that the FBI had severed ties with CAIR. Click here to read the letter. CAIR has responded in its predictable timeworn fashion—attack the messengers. The commentary below, fetched from the website of SANE (Society of Americans for National Existence), includes the...


Cheney Cautions Nation On Obama

TOKING THE FIRES of American political intrigue, we have a new interview of former Vice President Dick Cheney speaking of the Obama camp to gnaw. Oddly, the words of Mr. Cheney sound very much like the words of the man now occupying his former suite at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. Yes. Who can forget Joltin' Joe Biden's dire warning on the campaign trail just as things were heating up? The incoming administration's controversial new policies on Guantanamo Bay prison and the treatment of detainees makes it more likely a terrorist attack against the United States will succeed, according to...
