Reader D.H. sends an interesting news item from WWLTW-TV in New Orleans: The FBI temporarily shut down and raided a handful of local convenience stores Thursday, leading Arab store owners to decry the search-and-seizure operations as racial profiling. Terrebonne Narcotics Task Force agents Steven Bergeron (foreground) and Shane Fletcher carry items confiscated by the FBI […]
Robert Redeker: Forced underground by the jihadi mob There is a French petition of support for critic of Islam Robert Redeker. Sign here. Benedicte at Extreme Center has translated Le Figaro’s front-page editorial condemning the death threats that have forced Redeker into hiding. The NYTimes’ Saturday edition, posted online now, boils it down: A French […]
Very damning evidence. If it is all true, and it seems very likely that it is, Rep. Foley has shamed himself, his office, his district, and his party. I got back recently from Seattle, where good friends told me about their son’s wonderful experience as a Congressional page earlier this year. Rep. Foley’s apparent abuse […]
Biblical verses are on the chopping block.
***updated: tracking the source of the bogus Flickr photos…Wonkette editors demonstrate further malice…*** ***update 9/30 6:25pm…I have just heard from the student whose pictures were stolen from Webshots by the creator of the bogus Flickr site. She is Ashley Herzog of Ohio University (not Oberlin, my alma mater, as the bogus Flickr site creator misled […]
I asked yesterday for translations of the op-eds criticizing Islam that have been banned in Egypt and that have forced one of the authors, Robert Redeker, into hiding in France. Thanks to all the readers who have e-mailed their translations. Spread these far and wide. E-mail them to your friends. Post them on Egyptian online […]
Now do you see why I was skeptical of that public relations campaign to entice conservatives into endorsing World Trade Center? Filmmaker Oliver Stone blasted President George W. Bush Thursday, saying he has “set America back 10 years.” Stone added that he is “ashamed for my country” over the war in Iraq and the U.S. […]
I have blogged before about the obsessed UNC professor Eric Muller. He and his friends at Wonkette have sunk to a new low (Guess insulting me with ping-pong ball jokes wasn’t enough). As a response to my column this week on Charlotte Church, they post a picture of a woman in a bikini that they […]
Robert Redeker: In hiding after “insulting Islam” Ancient historian Egon Flaig: Banned in Egypt Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury: May face death for criticizing Islam The Danish cartoonists aren’t the only ones living in fear for offending the global jihadi mob. Now, French philosophy professor and secondary school teacher Robert Redeker is under police protection for […]
All the latest here on tonight’s rancorous, teeth-gnashing Senate vote. Update: Bill passes. 65-34-1.
Took a break from my usual column fare this week to muse about the corruption of Charlotte Church and the uphill battle against Bratz World.
***Update: The border fence clears a Senate hurdle*** No, I’m not making it up: U.S.-Mexico border fence may harm animal migration A plan to fence off a third of the U.S. border to stop illegal immigration from Mexico may harm migration routes used by animals including rare birds and jaguars, environmentalists and U.S. authorities warn. […]
This post by Dean Esmay, “calling out Michelle Malkin,” is what is known in the business as traffic bait. So go ahead and click it and give Esmay more of the traffic he wants. I highly recommend you read his post as the classic blogospheric example of how not to argue about Islam. Or anything […]
The SITE Institute has details of the new al Qaeda audiotape: The speech, 20:31 in length, is titled: “Come to a Word that is Just Between Us and You,” which is taken from the Qur’an, Surah al-Imran, verse 64. On the occasion of the month of Ramadan, al-Muhajir calls upon every “free Mujahid” to come […]
Very badly, according to this “study” about liberal vs. conservative dreams: A dream researcher from John F. Kennedy University in California has discovered fundamental differences between the dream worlds of people on the ideological left and the ideological right. Among his findings, Kelly Bulkeley discovered that liberals are more restless sleepers and have a higher […]
Brian Maloney has the lowdown on flailing lib radio network Air America’s legal and financial troubles at The Radio Equalizer. The New York State Attorney General’s office has now transferred the Gloria Wise Boys and Girls Club case involving Air America to its criminal prosecutions bureau. You won’t believe who finally covered the story. Yup, […]
AllahPundit (with signature Photoshop) sends the word via KVOA: A state commission that authorized placement of the Arizona 9-11 Memorial in Wesley Bolin Plaza will review controversial laser-cut inscriptions “and see if some of them could be removed,” the panel’s chairman said Wednesday. Former state Sen. Tom Smith, chairman of the Legislative Governmental Mall Commission, […]
What you’re not reading about in the dhimmi MSM. I did a search on Yahoo! News for photos and–surprise–nothing comes up. More blog coverage: Brian at Snapped Shot has extensive coverage and video. Richard at EU Referendum asks: When is a riot not a riot? He’s got a pic:
The Windbag from Massachusetts wins hands down today. John Hinderaker at Power Line nails him: The Democrats evidently aren’t happy with the release of the “key judgments” of the National Intelligence Estimate on global terrorism, because now they’ve demanded that the White House release the entire report. That will get them what they’re looking for, […]
Rep. Louise Slaughter: Water carrier for AP and security detainee Bilal Hussein The Associated (with terrorists) Press thinks it’s news that a Democrat congresswoman is recycling the suppressed-news organization’s talking points about Bilal Hussein, the AP photographer who was discovered by American troops in a Ramadi apartment with an alleged al Qaeda leader and a […]
Thanks to all the readers e-mailing the story. I’m glad to hear it, but it’s not quite clear to me that Chavez’s unhingedness at the U.N. had anything to do with it. Looks to me from the news stories that this had been in the works for a while: 7-Eleven spokesman Margaret Chabris said that, […]
Drip, drip, drip? In its original report leaking details of the National Intelligence Estimate on the Iraq war, the New York Times relied on anonymous, unnamed leakers to spin its contents and embarrass the White House. Today, the Times includes comments from some named sources. Pay attention to this one: What was most remarkable about […]
Scene from Idomeneo: Banned in Germany The first thing to remember when reading about the cancellation of Mozart’s Idomeneo in Germany and the opera house Deutsche Oper‘s kowtowing to Islamic bullies is that jihadists hate Western art and music. They hate love songs. They hate Muslim female pop stars. They hate church frescos. And poems. […]
