” In the debut of Reality Check, Ben Shapiro takes on Ben Affleck and the myth that only a tiny minority of Muslims worldwide are radical.
” As an estimated 2,000 expatriates from the United States and other Western nations join the Islamic State to fulfill a passion for conflict or jihad, a much smaller number of Westerners have signed up to fight against the militants. The latest: members of a biker gang from Holland.
The head of Never Surrender, Klaas Otto, told a Dutch radio station that three of its members went to Iraq to join Kurdish fighters battling the Islamic State, also known as ISIL or ISIS.”
“Ron from The Netherlands has joined the Kurds to exterminate the rodents of [ISIS]”
” The gang touts a quote from Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel on its Facebook page: “I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides.”
The story was first reported Wednesday by NPR.
The bikers join others outraged over the brutality displayed by Islamic State fighters, who have seized wide swaths of territory in Iraq and Syria. A former U.S. soldier from Racine, Wis., joined Kurdish fighters in northern Iraq and was wounded in a mortar attack.
” I couldn’t just sit and watch Christians being slaughtered anymore,” Jordan Matson, 28, told USA TODAY last week from a hospital bed in Derike, Syria. “These people are fighting for their homes, for everything they have.” “

” The Redoubtable Russian of Renown never disappoints, but this edition of Glazov Gang is one for the ages, as the the Glazovian One was joined by none other than Dr. David Wood, host of the Trinity Channel’s live talk show, “Jesus or Muhammad?” Dr. Wood has been in more than 40 public debates with Muslims and he runs the website AnsweringMuslims.com.
He came on the program to discuss the top 10 Qur’an verses to understand the Islamic State.”

” If trains and buss are no longer safe places for soldiers on their way to work, surely they are no longer safe for ordinary citizens either.
” The best thing you can do is to make an effort to kill any infidel, French, American, or any of their allies… Smash his head with a rock, slaughter him with a knife, run him over with a car throw him from a high place, choke him or poison him.” — Mohammed al-Adnani, ISIS spokesman, September 2014.
Instead of telling their soldiers to hide themselves, Western governments should tell their soldiers to show themselves to make clear to the jihadists, and to frightened citizens, that we in the West are not afraid of terrorists. On the contrary, we will root them out and come down on them with all our military might.
Earlier this week, Timon Dias wrote on these pages that the Dutch authorities have ordered Dutch soldiers not to wear their uniforms when they are using public transport on their way to the barracks. But the Dutch are not the only cowards in the West. Unfortunately, the Netherlands is not the only country that, for fear of attacks by Muslim extremists, has advised its military to no longer wear their uniforms in public. Apparently, Australia, Belgium, Britain and France have done the same. “
” Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer lashed out at National Security adviser Susan Rice following her seemingly premature announcement that the U.S. had reached an agreement with Turkey over using territory to train troops to fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.
Krauthammer told “Special Report” host Bret Baier, after airing Rice’s comments on “Meet The Press” on Sunday, that the adviser’s proclamation, coupled with the Turks denial, is a “huge embarrassment” and “unbelievable.” The conservative commentator also blamed President Barack Obama for this failure to reach an agreement, wondering why the Turks would join a war “where the leader of the coalition is not serious.” “
Be sure to check out our post of last year on Susan Rice’s track record of incompetence .
” The Associated Press has published an interview with an anonymous 15-year-old girl, who says she was captured and sold into slavery by Islamic State terrorists, but escaped.
The girl, who remains anonymous for her protection, is a Yazidi, a member of an ethnic and religious sect that Sunni Muslims regard as satanic. The religion itself has roots in Zoroastrianism and Christianity and has been influenced by Islam. They regard themselves as pacifists and have long striven to coexist with their Muslim and Christian neighbors.
The religious sect has counted 73 massacres in their history including the most recent one at the hands of the Islamic State. During that massacre, men and teenage boys were killed while women, some as young as 5, were taken and sold into slavery.
It was amid the violence that took place on Mount Sinjar where the victim said she was captured by Islamic State fighters. Most of her family disappeared, likely murdered. She survived with her sisters who were all taken together. The terrorists took her to a stronghold a prison in the town of Tal Afar and held. Many women she said were raped by the guards who detained them.”

” Hannity’s guest tonight was Piers Morgan. Sean Hannity and Piers Morgan in the same room.C’mon, you know you want to see this. The ex-CNN host Piers Morgan sat down with Hannity for a surprisingly genial discussion. They found themselves in great agreement on the question of President Obama‘s foreign policy. Morgan said Obama has been a “big disappointment” all over the place, and for him to throw the intel community under the bus was a sign that he is “lead[ing] from behind.” And he’s also upset that Obama can go out and condemn violence and then be seen “goofing around” on the golf course.
Hannity brought up CNN’s ratings woes, and Morgan said that when there’s no breaking news happening, CNN falters. He called his former home “quite schizophrenic” and even credited Fox for how well they do.
And yes, they fought a bit over guns.
Watch the full segment below, via Fox News:Piers Morgan slammed Obama’s lead from behind on Hannity. Piers Morgan ripped his handling of ISIS, secret service and other issues. “
” As ISIS prepares to take the Turkish border city of Kobani, the new Caliphate’s use of social media as a promotional tool (which is rather more effective than, say, the Democrats’ or Justin Trudeau’s) has begun to inspire what Obama would presumably call the jihad’s junior “junior varsity” teams:
Boko Haram, the extremist Islamic group, reportedly beheaded seven people Monday in Nigeria in revenge attacks, which were described by one resident as the way butchers “slaughter goats.”
From the report, you might get the impression that that’s a figure of speech. But it’s literally true. At the end of my piece on the beheading by an infidel-hating Muslim Oklahoman of his female colleague Colleen Hufford, I wrote:
It is not a pleasant way to die, in part because it requires more expertise than you might think. A decade ago, a young lady in my employ emailed a backgrounder on the subject to me in my room at the Grand Hyatt in Amman the night before I set off on my motoring tour of Iraq. If you’re lucky, your killer will insert the knife from the side, the sharp edge pointing to your front. One skilled thrust forward will cut the jugular, the carotid artery, the esophagus – and it will all be over in seconds. On the evidence of their social media videos, the ISIS boys are not that good: They go in from the front, blade facing backward, sawing back and forth for minutes on end. “
” A spectacular explosion on Sunday night outside Tehran took place deep inside the Parchin military base, where Iran produces crucial elements of its missiles and other munitions, raising new questions about whether the blast was an accident or sabotage.
The explosion and resulting fire, which Iranian news organizations have described in only the most general terms, could be seen from apartments in Tehran and appeared to have destroyed several buildings. But it was distant from a part of the base to which the International Atomic Energy Agency has been seeking access for years, to investigate reports of experiments on high explosives that could have been used in nuclear weapons.”
” The agency’s evidence about that activity dates back more than a decade, and that part of the base has been so bulldozed and reconfigured in recent years that inspectors concede it is doubtful there is much left to see or test if they ever get access.
The explosion, according to satellite photographs from Airbus that were analyzed by the Institute for Science and International Security, took place in a densely built region toward the southern end of the base, in an area that appeared from past photographs to be littered with bunkers. The damage was reminiscent of pictures of a missile-development site 30 miles west of Tehran that was virtually destroyed during a test in November 2011 that killed 17 people, including Gen. Hassan Tehrani Moghaddam, the leading force behind Iran’s advanced missile efforts. “
” The threats made against three school districts included the word, “beheading,” according to Warwick Police Chief Stephen M. McCartney.
As police from Cranston, Warwick and Johnston beefed up their presence in elementary schools Wednesday, McCartney said that the anonymous letter included the phrase, “beheading is planned.” “
” Muslims in Germany, loyal to ISIS, took up machetes and knives, and other weapons, and attacked a peaceful anti-ISIS protest organized by Kurdish nationals. One report:
Peaceful protests against IS in Syria and Iraq organized by Kurdish nationals in several German cities ended with serious clashes with pro-jihadist Muslims in Hamburg and Celle. Police had to request reinforcements to restore order.
Police in Hamburg, a port city of 1.8 million people, used water cannons, batons and pepper spray late Tuesday to disperse crowds of warring Kurds and pro-jihadist Muslims, armed with knives and brass-knuckles, following a protest against Islamic State militants who are attacking the Kurdish town of Kobani in Syria near the Turkish border.
At first, on Tuesday afternoon about 80 Kurdish protesters occupied Hamburg’s central train station for an hour, NDR.de reported. The Kurdish protesters left the railways voluntarily after 6pm, a police spokesman said. “
” In her first national TV interview, the mother of Benghazi victim Glen Doherty went “On The Record” to discuss her son’s death and the action she’s taking against the CIA, State Department, and his insurance company.
Barbara Doherty told Greta Van Susteren that the first time she heard that Glen was in Libya was when she learned that he had died. Barbara said that her daughter broke the news to her.
“ It’s the wrong order,” she said of her son dying before her.
When asked whether the government gave her any information on the day she learned of Glen’s death, Barbara said, “That day was just filled with crying and tears. If they told me anything, I don’t remember it. It was like that for two or three days […] looking back, you’re in a fog and you’re just told what to do, and you do it.”
It was “well over a month” before then-FBI Director Robert Mueller called Barbara. She said that he apologized for not calling sooner and said it was because he couldn’t find her contact number.
“ I said, ‘You are the FBI,’ he said, ‘Yes,’” she told Van Susteren. “
” The Dutch Ministry of Defense has advised its soldiers not wear their uniforms in public. Dutch vice Prime Minister Lodewijk Asscher of the Labour Party emphasized that the proposal was merely advice.
The Dutch military, however, clearly ordered — instead of advised — its personnel to hide their military professions in public.
By ordering Dutch soldiers to be “invisible” in The Netherlands, what message is the government sending to it enemies, let alone its own citizens?
Jihadists now know that a few tweets from a single Dutch jihadist can fundamentally alter Dutch defense policy. It will order the personnel tasked with keeping The Netherlands safe to hide.
A country that has to hide its soldiers on its own soil and protect its Jewish schools with Military Police cannot possibly maintain that it has no real problems with elements of its Muslim minority.
Dutch customs officials, whose uniforms could be mistaken as military, received the same advice.
Shaam tweeted: “So, now Dutch F-16’s. Dutch people: your government just made you a target”.
In a more elaborate threat, Shaam stated: “The West offered more than 90 million lives during the first and second World War for their self-glorified democracy. So the Ummah must be prepared to sacrifice even more lives for a righteous State which rules under the laws of Allah. The world has suffered the oppressive darkness of Western capitalism for long enough. It’s time they get a taste of divine justice.” “
Welcome to the enlightened world of Dutch Dhimmitude
Published on Sep 21, 2014
GEEN STIJL, EJ BRON, NOS: Apart from nice weather, is this September week, full of interesting news items from The Netherlands. It had started by a ‘glamour Jihadist’ from Huizen, in ‘Het Gooi’ (an area where Dutch VIP’s use to live) who had on his computers manuals and detailed planes for terror assaults; including suicide bombing. It had proceeded by a brutal attack of Muslim immigrants on an indigenous 15 years old girl from IJmuiden.
During the debates on State affairs, two days ago, PM Mark Rutte had dedicated a special word for Geert Wilders of the Freedom Party. Rutte reflects his anger on Wilders negative views on Muslims and Moroccans. They deserve much more respect for their contribution to Dutch society.
By the way, the girl was molested on a spot called ‘Plein 1945’; a square named after the year in which The Netherlands was freed by the allies from the Nazis.
PM Mark Rutte says Wilders cannot stand in the shadow of all the good Moroccans (and other Muslims). They are outstanding people who are busy in their mosque (with what?), are serving in the army (of whom? The one of Allah?) …and of course they are excellent neighbours; especially in the Sharia neighbourhoods of The Hague, Amsterdam etc. “
” A documentary shown in a Virginia high school that some parents say is too sympathetic to the 9/11 terrorists is outraging some parents.
The video, called “Searching for the Roots of 9/11” was produced by three-time Pulitzer Prize winner Thomas Friedman and aired on the Discovery Channel in 2003. It examines “Muslim anger” at America and – some say – paints an all-too-kind picture of their motives.
Blogger Tom White first reported on the issue after concerned parents contact him.
The video was shown to Hanover High School students in a history class. It was not part of the official curriculum.”
” Talk about “audacity.” Talk about fundamentally changing the game. Redirecting the conversation about terrorism. Speaking the kind of unabashed, unvarnished truth that most world leaders wouldn’t dare to utter. Talk about what will have the world talking.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu — true to the character of a man unafraid of how his words might be turned against him — has given what’s being called a “landmark” address to the United Nations General Assembly.”
” Of course, not all Muslims are violent and should not be treated as such. However, one store, The Gun Cave Indoor Shooting Range in Hot Springs, Arkansas, has declared itself a “Muslim-free zone.”Citing safety concerns and an extensive history of violent actions taken by Muslims in the U.S. and abroad, range owner Jan Morgan posted on her website a ten-point explanation for her decision to ban Muslims from her establishment and clarification as to her supposed legal reasoning.Morgan claims that the ATF has asked her in the past to exercise judgment in refusing service to people who she feels might be unstable or a threat in general. This broad leeway, Morgan claims, offers her the authority to deny service broadly to Muslims. Bearingarms.com backs-up this assertion and notes,
“ She brings up a very valid point that gun stores and ranges have both a legal and moral obligation to ensure the safety of their patrons. Because of this, they may refuse service to anyone they deem to be under the influence, mentally unstable, or otherwise a potential threat to themselves, or others. FFLs are afforded a great deal of latitude in this regard, as the federal government would rather err on the side of caution.” “
” President Obama acknowledged that the U.S. underestimated the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, also called ISIL) and overestimated the ability of the Iraqi military to fend off the militant group in an interview that will air Sunday on 60 Minutes.
The president was asked by 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft about comments from Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who has said the U.S. not only underestimated ISIS, it also overestimated the ability and will of the Iraqi military to fight the extremist group.
” That’s true,” Mr. Obama said. “That’s absolutely true.”
” Jim Clappper has acknowledged that I think they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria,” he said, blaming the instability of the Syrian civil war for giving extremists space to thrive.”

” French television on Thursday aired video footage secretly shot by a Syrian woman currently living in the Islamic State-controlled territory within Syria.
In the footage, the woman describes life in Raqqa, the northern Syrian province where IS militants have established an administrative capital. “
Mr Alton Nolen … aka Jah’Keem Yisrael
” Moore is a municipality that lies between Norman, where a dear friend of mine lives, and Oklahoma City, which I know reasonably well. I can’t claim to know Moore other than to drive through, but I do remember the water tower emblazoned with “Moore – Home of Toby Keith”. Can’t get more American than that, can you?
Colleen Hufford was born in 1960. Life is full of grim twists and cruel vicissitudes, but in mid-20th century America it would not have occurred to anyone that one needed to worry about going to work and being beheaded by a colleague. Yet that’s what happened to Ms Hufford on Thursday: She turned up for her job at at the Vaughan Foods food processing plant in Moore, and Alton Alexander Nolen decapitated her.
Why would he do that? Well, as the initial reports were at pains to assure us, it’s nothing to do with terrorism. That’s true, in the sense that Mr Nolen is not a card-carrying member of an officially credentialed state-recognized terrorism-provider such as ISIS or al-Qaeda. It’s true in the sense that he’s not on any official US Department of Homeland Security terror watch list, because, under the geniuses running American national security, that honor is reserved for my fellow Hillsdale cruiser Steve Hayes. And, of course, it’s also true in the sense that Mr Nolen is a recent convert to Islam and, as David Cameron and Barack Obama and many others are ever more eager to emphasize, terrorism is nothing to do with Islam. Mr Nolen had the Muslim greeting “As-salamu Alaikum” – “Peace be upon you” – tattooed upon his abdomen. And he’d tried, without success, to persuade his co-workers at Vaughan Foods to convert to Islam. So he wasn’t just mildly Islamic in the nothing-to-do-with-terrorism sense, he was super-Islamic in the really-totally-no-terrorism-to-see-here sense.
So Colleen Hufford’s death was, as Jim Hoft put it, just “a random workplace beheading“. Indeed, many commenters at KOCO-TV seem more outraged by the mentioning of Mr Nolen’s religion than by the beheading:
Truth is, Islam has nothing to do with it. And Christians are far from innocent.
What does his religion have to do with this tragedy???
What does his religious faith have to do with this story?
Why would you even through in anything about terrorism in this story? The writer of this story is a true DUMBASS! “
