I am on the cover of the UK Independent Sunday Magazine, with the title “The most dangerous woman in America?” under my picture. It is, unsurprisingly, scathing. Stephen Gash of SIOE quipped, “the paper calls itself the Independent, but is a slave of the self-styled left.” I knew this going in. They are notoriously left wing and anti-semitic, so friendly it was not going to be. So what? This is war in the information battle-space, and the playing field isn’t fair. No use in handwringing and whining about it — you get your message out there no matter how biased the medium or leftwing the writer is. Robert Chalmers does a hit piece. Compared to his previous pieces on cult rock figures and revered but obscure artists, it is sadly disappointing, but Chalmers was on a mission to paint me in an unfavorable light — so he sacrificed his particular style for smear. I thought, perhaps, he might be an old style journalist (the last of a dead breed) and might actually approach the subject matter objectively. Not. Another one bites the big one.

Well not really, however the staff were very kind when I ducked in to clean a lense. Today’s Nabka rally in downtown Toronto was a good news, bad news story.
The good news was the excellent turnout by the JDL and other members of the Jewish community in counter-protest to the Nabka rally.
No sooner does a Yemeni Muslim begin hammering on the cockpit door shouting “Allahu Akbar”, then the media speculates that he must have gotten confused looking for the bathroom. And on September 11, four groups of Muslim men with boxcutters got confused looking for the nearest post office.
The lead is invariably buried. Paragraphs fly by until it’s mentioned that the confused fellow may have been a Muslim. If it’s mentioned at all. And his cry of Allahu Akbar is translated as God is Great to render it more acceptable to readers. But like so many Islamic translations, it’s right enough to be wrong. Allahu Akbar doesn’t mean Allah is Great, in a “Isn’t ‘Allah and the Virgins of Paradise’ a great band”. It’s more like Allah is Greatest or Superior. And if you’re on the right side of the cockpit door, the one doing the shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ means that Allah is superior to your country and to you. And one of his followers is about to do his best to show you why.
News stories which, like fruit punch, carry 70 percent propaganda to 30 percent juice, are always eager to explain to their readers, that “Allahu Akbar” is just one of those things that Muslims shout at random occasions.

American philosopher Thomas Sowell wrote that “the vision of the anointed [has] achieved a sacrosanct status, hermetically sealed off from the contaminating influence of facts.” There are few places in America with as dense a concentration of anointed critters as Santa Fe, New Mexico. The city is famous for its art and food scenes, pueblo-style architecture, and skies rendered deep blue by a seven-thousand-foot elevation and crisp, clean air. But something decidedly unclean is happening in Santa Fe.
The venue is Monte del Sol Charter School. An eighteen-year-old demonstrates the use of condoms in class. The girl’s expertise comes courtesy of Planned Parenthood’s Peer Education Program.
Santa Fe Planned Parenthood “health educator” Denise Jennings, who wants to “normalize sex,” trains teens to train other teens in “the five circles of sexuality.”

If you look up Nakba online, the search returns numerous Palestinian websites claiming to explain this phenomenon in Palestinian history and eliciting sympathy and even financial donations for the numerous Palestinian “refugees” in the Arab countries who are descendants of the original refugees from Israel’s 1948 War of Independence. At the time this unfortunate problem developed in the late 1940s, flooding the Arab countries with thousands and even hundreds of thousands of Palestinian refugees, the Arabs refused to accept any solution to the problem but Israel’s accepting all the refugees back into the territory they fled — now the state of Israel. Israel for its part agreed to accept a small percentage back. But for the tyrannical Arabs, the solution was all or nothing.
So the Palestinian refugees who fled Israel in 1948 during the War of Independence were stuck in squalid camps in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and Egypt. And the Arabs have consistently exploited the problem for political mileage against Israel and on the backs of the Palestinians.
A question that is more to the point however, is how exactly did the Palestinians become refugees in the first place in 1948?

Steve Kellmeyer has penned an arresting assessment of the War on Terror, a struggle that should be recognized forthrightly as our defensive efforts against Islam’s aggressive war to subjugate and destroy civilization.
President Obama is dangerously misguided. The inherent superficiality of liberal-progressivism, its instinctive expectation that everyone sees the world as liberal-progressives see it, leads the president to a foreign policy that is the equivalent of attempting to deflect a great white shark’s attack by singing a soft lullaby.
For a thousand years after Mohammed’s 622 hegira, there was never a decade when Muslim marauders were not overrunning Christian cities around the Mediterranean and throughout the Middle East, slaughtering the men, and enslaving the women and children. It is this history that Islamic Jihad strives to revive.
Make no mistake about it: Islam is dedicated to death. Islam commands its followers to beguile non-Muslims with appearances of friendship, awaiting an opportunity to attack and destroy. Make no mistake about it: there is no milk of human kindness in Islamic Jihad. Muslim warriors and suicide bombers long for death, yours and theirs.
