Behold the forbidden blasphemous balls!

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 27, 2007 11:52 PM

Burn them! File this under “No good deed goes unpunished” by the Religion of Perpetual Outrage: A demonstration has been held in south- east Afghanistan accusing US troops of insulting Islam after they distributed footballs bearing the name of Allah. The balls showed the Saudi Arabian flag which features the Koranic declaration of faith. The […]

2006: The year of perpetual outrage

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 20, 2006 12:05 PM

***update and bumped to the top: Zawahiri rings in the new year with a call to jihad for the Religion of Perpetual Outrage*** It began with the Danish cartoons. It ended with the flying imams. 2006 was a banner year for the Religion of Perpetual Outrage. Twelve turbulent months of fist-waving, embassy-burning, fatwa-issuing mayhem, intimidation, […]

The Pope in Turkey

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 28, 2006 11:46 AM

Looks like Pope Benedict XVI is safe so far. Via Breitbart.com: He began his first visit to a Muslim country Tuesday with a message of dialogue and “brotherhood” between faiths, and Turkey’s chief Islamic cleric said at a joint appearance that growing “Islamophobia” hurts all Muslims… … The pope is expected to call for greater […]

What American journalists should be thankful for

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 22, 2006 11:05 AM

In between breathless condemnations of the Bush administration for stifling its free speech, endless court filings demanding classified and sensitive information from the military and intelligence agencies, and self-pitying media industry confabs bemoaning their hemorrhaging circulations (with the exception of the New York Post), my colleagues in the American media don’t have much to time […]

Pope will visit Turkey

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 16, 2006 10:02 AM

The Vatican confirms: The Vatican on Monday officially confirmed that Pope Benedict will visit Turkey at the end of November, a trip that had been put into doubt by Muslim anger over controversial comments he made about Islam. The confirmation of the Nov 28-Dec 1 trip to the predominantly Muslim nation came in an advisory […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 13, 2006 08:50 AM

The Pope Rage death count rises. Reader Steve G. sends word of a priest murdered by jihadists–who once again prove their critics right: Relatives of a beheaded Iraqi priest said his captors had demanded a church apology for recent papal comments about Islam. They said the Orthodox priest was abducted Sunday by an unidentified group, […]

Remembering Sister Leonella

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 25, 2006 11:09 PM

Sister Leonella: Paying last respects To borrow a phrase from Rush Limbaugh, the “drive-by media” gave a few hours’ attention to the victims of jihadists’ Pope Rage last weekend and then quickly moved on to the next headline. I think the murder of Sister Leonella deserves a few more seconds of your time. The latest […]

This what a real martyr looks like

Sister Leonella: Murdered by jihadists There’s a new Associated Press report on the murder of Sister Leonella that confirms the bloody obvious: An elderly nun who was gunned down at the hospital where she worked in Somalia’s capital was “specifically targeted before being executed by gunmen lying in wait,” a hospital official said Monday. Willy […]

Oriana Fallaci, R.I.P., and the Religion of Perpetual Outrage

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 15, 2006 07:30 AM

Deeply saddening news at the end of this 9/11 anniversary week. The outspoken lioness Oriana Fallaci has died of cancer: Oriana Fallaci, one of Italy’s best-known writers and war correspondents who goaded the world’s great and issued a vitriolic assault on Islam after the September 11 attacks on the United States, died on Friday aged […]

9/11 pledge: “I will not submit”

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 11, 2006 01:27 PM

The above phrase in Arabic is “lan astaslem.” It means “I will not surrender/I will not submit.” (Thanks to Rusty, Laura, and Daveed for translation help.) This is the last line of my 9/11 column and it’s my 9/11 anniversary message to the convert-or-die jihadists. And yes, I’ve got t-shirts in the works as a […]

Kate at Small Dead Animals reminds us of Oriana Fallaci’s searing essay from December 2002–which deserves to be reprinted far and wide (update: I’ve added hyperlinks for reference/background). I find it shameful that in Italy there should be a procession of individuals dressed as suicide bombers who spew vile abuse at Israel, hold up photographs […]

This lioness has taught me much. Opened my eyes. Talk about speaking truth to power. Her trial in Italy for insulting Islam—for insulting Islam–commenced in Italy today. Where are the free-speech champions? The feminists? The human rights brigade? Come out, come out, wherever you are. *** Robert Spencer weighs in on the trial and provides […]

Robert Spencer blows the whistle on a vile art exhibit in Milan that “has illustrated once again the deep affinity between the Left and the forces of the global jihad.” In these days of Muslims the world over calling for the deaths of those who have “insulted Islam,” anyone who wants to see Oriana Fallaci […]

Does freedom of speech include the freedom to criticize Islam? Not in Italy, apparently. Says the IHT: These are dangerous times for writers or artists who tread into the always sensitive territory of religion, as incidents ranging from the fatwa against Salman Rushdie to the destruction of an art exhibition in Moscow have shown. But […]
