Muslim Jihad In Thailand No Joke

olice in insurgency-wracked southern Thailand said Tuesday that mobile phones seized from an attack site contain video clips showing suspected insurgents beheading their victims and in one case, cutting off a soldier's sex organ. Investigators found two mobile phones in a bag left behind in an area of Yala province where suspected insurgents killed a police officer over the weekend, said police Col. Sompien Eksomya from Yala's Bannang Star district, where the attack occurred. "We sent the SIM cards to be checked out and found gruesome video clips," he said by telephone. One video clip taken Jan. 2, 2006 showed...

Truly Symbolic Of A Caliphate, Not Europe

ERHAPS IT SHOULD BE NOTED once again what a certain Muslim, a leader of present day Turkey, Recep Tayyip Edrogan has publicly proclaimed, "The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets, the believers our soldiers." To borrow a riff from Bob Dylan and merge it with the old Saturday Night Live tagline, surely it doesn't take a weatherman to know that Turkey's not quite ready for prime time, or to be a good neighbor to the European community. The prime minister has also been quoted as saying that the term "moderate Islam" is ugly and...


Few Good Choices In Life

The following remarks were written by a contributor to Jihad Watch who was reacting to an article by syndicated columnist Diane West who recently confronted Senator Arlen Spector on the Iraq War, who in turn had ducked the hard questions of why our soldiers were being handicapped in this war by suggesting that the American people weren't prepared to accept civilian casualties. n the contrary, the number of civilian casualties in Iraq is absolutely huge. And on top of the near daily bombings that take out dozens at a time and horribly wound hundreds more, we've got Iraqis getting their...


Quantum Infidel Has A Plan To Defeat Our Enemies

ow is the time for all good men and fighting women also to phase out nation building and to indulge in some steamy quantum theory, a scientific notion perhaps best floated by baseball's Wee Willie Keeler-style, keeping a strong eye, hit 'em where they ain't. I'm speaking of recalibrating the military rules of engagement that guide but mostly constrain our American forces in Iraq, rules of engagement that are closer to the muscle memory that our grandfathers might have used to contain and defeat a heavily armed, despotically inspired mortal enemy: Maybe, just maybe we would not even be in...


Send Them Home

OLUTIONS AT HOME. Recent history offers us a few choice examples of practical reactions to an enemy within. From the ever vigilant Hugh Fitzgerald, a primary contributor to the Jihad Watch website: Fatalism is not supposed to be a European trait. One usually speaks of "Oriental fatalism" and by that is meant not something to be found in the Far East, but among Muslim peoples. Inshallah-fatalism doesn't look good on non-Muslims. In 1946—surely the Austrian minister recalls—7 million (or was it even fewer?) Czechs (that is, Czechs and Slovaks) expelled from Czechoslovakia 3-3.5 million ethnic Germans. They did so because,...
