For a sizable portion of America, the War of Iraq was not simply wrong because it is a war. It was wrong because we were misled into it, with President George W. Bush lying about weapons of mass destruction to get us there.
Or did he?
New York Times journalist Judith Miller argues differently. She was one of the journalists who was given information about WMDs in Iraq in the early 2000s. more >>
The Islamic State terror group in Iraq and Syria reportedly includes 31,000 pregnant women, with the children in danger of being raised into the next generation of Islamic terrorists.
"The future of children born and raised in Islamic State is a pertinent and pressing problem, requiring the immediate attention of the international community. There are currently 31,000 pregnant women within the 'caliphate,'" states the report by the anti-extremist Quilliam Foundation.
"As many as 50 children from the United Kingdom are growing up on jihad in Islamic State, and no prior research examines what will happen to them if they choose to return," it adds. more >>
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders declined to label the Islamic State's persecution of Christians and other religious minorities a "genocide" during Monday night's Fox News Democratic town hall.
As IS continues to kill, enslave and abuse Christians and other religious minorities in Iraq and Syria, the Vermont senator was asked by moderator Brett Baier whether he believed that the crimes against humanity being committed by IS against religious minorities in the Middle East should be classified as a "genocide."
Although prominent human rights groups and over 200 members of Congress have argued that a United States "genocide" designation would help foster swift international action to stop the war crimes, Sanders answered by saying that he doesn't believe "a word" needs to put in place to describe what is happening to those minority communities. more >>
The husband of the Muslim nanny who beheaded a 4-year-old girl in Moscow last month has reportedly been arrested in Tajikistan, and is suspected of radicalizing his wife and teaching her to follow Shariah law.
The couple's eldest son told authorities that 48-year-old Mamur Dzhurakulov married the nanny, Gyulchekhra Bobokulova, in a Shariah ceremony, which sparked a dramatic transformation in her, reported the MailOnline.
Bobokulova admitted last week of beheading Anastasia Meshcheryakova, the 4-year-old girl she was watching over in Moscow, burning the apartment of the parents who had entrusted her with their child, and parading the child's severed head outside a metro station. more >>
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has been named "Islamophobe of the Year" by a U.K.-based Islamic rights group.
The Islamic Human Rights Commission announced the Manhattan real estate mogul as its so-called "Islamophobe of the Year" at its annual satirical "Islamophobia Awards" gala dinner that was held on Saturday, according to a statement issued by the organization.
The billionaire GOP frontrunner took home the the organization's top award after he issued a call last December for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States." more >>
Former Muslim and best-selling author Ayaan Hirsi Ali argued last week that political correctness in the West is making it harder for the United States and other Western nations to combat the rise of radical Islamic terrorism and its political philosophy.
The 46-year-old Ali, who grew up in a Muslim family in Somalia, suffered female genital mutilation and eventually fled to Holland after her father tried to force her to marry a distant cousin, participated in a panel discussion last Friday at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland.
Ali, who is an atheist after renouncing her Muslim faith in 2002 and has authored four books critical of Islam, warned that concerned citizens in the West must not be afraid to speak out and tell the truth about radical jihadis whom she claims are following the Islamic political doctrine established by the Islamic prophet Muhammad in Medina. more >>
