Sharia preference…

leave a comment »

You can tell yourself that you are not really surprised that  more than  a quarter of French Muslims support hard-line Islam and back Sharia,   because France doesn’t have a sterling track record when it comes to assimilation of immigrant groups.

But the USA does,  so what can you say about  this video  of Somali Americans living in Minneapolis and their views on Sharia?

As I have explained before,  Islam is the sole major religion which has not undergone reformation as a whole.   Some groups of individuals have reformed their practice of Islam themselves,  but what the jihadists practice is straight out of the 7th Century version of Islam.   Many Muslims know Islam needs badly to be reformed,  but very few are willing to speak out like Zuhdi Jasser.   If you don’t know who he is,  you should, as he is an  admirable man  who is trying to rescue his religion and those who practice it.

None so blind…

leave a comment »

You know the old saying,  don’t you?   Let us hope the activists in San Diego don’t let their  willful blindness  and incredible ignorance don’t cause that city’s citizens to become victims.   What commonalities do they have with Islamic jihadists who want to kill us?   I’d be very interested in knowing the answer to that.

Depending on how you slice the data,  a large number of terrorists come from majority Muslim countries.  No,  not all Muslims are terrorists,  but the  underlying data  doesn’t lie or mislead.   Anyone who thinks law enforcement should not be prepared for Islamic terrorists attacks is worse than an idiot,  dangerously so.

Germany is crazy…

leave a comment »

You probably didn’t grow up on a farm as I did,  but would you place a fox in charge of the hen house?   I very much doubt it.   Germany wants to train migrants  to be pool lifeguards to protect swimmers from sex attacks committed by…wait for it…migrants.

Gee,  how could this possibly go wrong?   Has the entire West lost its collective mind and all semblance of self-respect?

New Yorkers are stupid…

with one comment

This past week filmmaker Ami Horowitz  asked people in New York City if Islam “played a role” in the Orlando terrorist attack.   All those in this video said  “no.”    Then he asked them if Republicans or Islam were more to blame for the attack.    Watch,  but put your drink down before you do.

I would like to claim this shocks me,  but it does not.   As  this poll  reveals,  most Democrats are determined to ignore Islamic radicalism in order to protect their skewed view of the world,  and in the process,  make their fellow citizens less safe by disarming them,  seemingly oblivious to the fact that the government CAN NOT KEEP YOU SAFE.    This attitude makes them nearly as dangerous as the jihadis.

Beat your wife the Islamic way…

leave a comment »

A Saudi family therapist has thoughtfully provided  a video  in which he instructs men on the proper way to discipline their wives under Islamic rules.   The next time some American woman starts whining about how she is treated,  make her watch and tell her to shut up.

She’s in big trouble…

leave a comment »

…for  blasting Muslims  who don’t admit terrorism is an Islamic problem and an Arab problem.    Saudi columnist and television anchor Nadine Al-Budair probably won’t have her job for long,  and is no doubt at risk of losing her life.   I applaud her courage and her veracity.

Air France caves…

leave a comment »

Some female cabin crew are resisting  the order  to wear head scarves while in Tehran when Air France resumes flights to Iran.   They apparently aren’t buying the airline’s wimpy statement that the orders regarding dress code for females isn’t new and is what all foreign airlines adhere to.

UPDATE:  A labor union has made Air France back up a bit.   Now the airline  will not  force female attendants to fly to Iran.   Of course, the union is French,  but isn’t protecting its members one of the things labor unions were originally meant to do?
