Classified military documents from Iraq ended up in Arabic translator's apartment in Brooklyn
No worries. "This is not a terrorism case. This could happen to any immigrant." Of course. Any immigrant could inadvertently get a job handling classified military documents, and mistakenly take some home with him, and -- who knows? -- perhaps...
Al-Qaeda vows revenge for Libi canning
This declaration by al-Yazid manifests once again the common jihadist tendency to portray every act of defense against the jihad as an unprovoked attack. Of course, a po-faced insistence on this stance among the Palestinians has led to immense propaganda...
Afghan government official: We won't excute the blasphemer
Sayed Pervez Kambaksh downloaded an article about women's rights from the Internet. For that he faces execution for blasphemy in Brave New Democratic Afghanistan. But international pressure may once again save a life. "Afghan government official says that student will...

600 would-be jihad-martyrdom bombers in Karachi
From the Jundullah, or Army of Allah. And most of the 600 are former students of the Red Mosque, which was involved in a bloody confrontation with Pakistani forces last summer. But of course, this has nothing whatsoever to do...
Norway: Jihadists recruiting local Muslims for jihad overseas
But young Muslims in Norway interviewed for this article say, What? Jihad recruitment in Norway? Piffle! And even if there were, none of us would go for it! Go back to sleep! This parallels statements by Muslim spokesmen in America....
Unwitting jihad-martyrdom bombers: it's becoming a trend

Federal prosecutors: CAIR has "conspired with other affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood to support terrorists"
Yet again, CAIR has been outed by federal prosecutors as a Hamas-supporting Muslim Brotherhood front -- while Reuters and the rest keep pretending it is a neutral civil rights advocacy organization. "For the Record: Government Reminds Court of CAIR/MAS Ties...
Fouad Ajami: Samuel Huntington was right, there is a clash of civilizations
I apologize for posting a month-old piece, but it was only brought to my attention yesterday by Bryan Preston's boffo quiz at HotAir. On January 6 in the "The Clash" in the New York Times, Fouad Ajami wrote that, after...
