Islam on Townhall

Rachel Alexander - Thu Dec 27

The Obama administration is following the direction of the United Nations and suppressing any mention of radical Islam's association with terrorism. Even the word “terrorism” is being censored because it has become associated with Islam. Remember President George W. Bush's “War on Terror?” The phrase has disappeared, even though terrorist attacks are increasing. Obama has stopped using the phrase. ... more

Google “Islamist” and you’ll get more than 24 million hits. Google “jihadist” and you’ll get millions more. Yet I bet the average American could not tell you what it is that Islamists and jihadists believe. And those at the highest levels of the U.S. government refuse to do so. ... more

The opening scene-setter for the 1996 film "Independence Day" might serve as a metaphor for what Egyptians could face if a draft constitution written by a panel dominated by Islamists and based on Sharia law wins approval in a referendum: "A loud rumble is heard. Suddenly, we are covered in darkness as the shadow engulfs us. Only the image of our Earth hangs in the air, until a huge silhouetted object suddenly blocks our view." ... more

I am currently on an around-the-globe trip, going from the West Coast, to Down Under, Singapore, London, and then home again. From the vantage point of this journey, the one striking and overwhelming image I get is of two runaway trains moving in opposite directions. And yet, in some strange way, they are about to cause a global collision. Let me explain. ... more

Each year, Minnesota government schools close for two days (just before the weekend, of course) so teachers’ union members can gather at a conference organized by their union. ... more

Night Watch - Sat Oct 20

Accelerated delivery of F-16s is not a short term solution. In the long run, however, they will help make Iraq the shield of Shiite Islam and the buffer for Iran. ... more

Unless you've been living under the rock for the past month or so, you've probably noticed that campaign season has kicked into overdrive. One of the critical voting blocks being targeted by Democrats are women. ... more

Imagine, pre-9/11/12, that you were responsible for arranging the defense of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Would you have considered American interests and personnel best protected by bringing in a local security outfit called the February 17 Martyrs Brigade? ... more

Dennis Prager - Tue Oct 2

For at least the last hundred years, the world's most dynamic religion has been neither Christianity nor Islam. It is leftism. ... more

Prior to leaving Egypt for the United Nations General Assembly, Egypt's Islamist President Mohamed Morsi told The New York Times the United States needs to "fundamentally change" its approach to the Arab world. That includes, he said, showing greater respect for Arab values, as well as helping to build a Palestinian state. ... more

Ken Connor - Wed Sep 26

The violent response to an anti-Muslim movie has cast the subject of religious tolerance into the limelight. Is Islam a religion that can tolerate criticism? Can Muslims bear up gracefully when their religion is insulted? As I wrote last week, when it comes to Islam as practiced and understood in much of the Middle East, the short answer to these questions appears to be "no." ... more

Man, don’t cha love how the Insane Stream Media and their soft-brain disciples make Christians out to be fish-stickered, bug-eyed equals to incensed Islam? If you were to accept what the White House, some atheists and prattling gay activists say about Christians as true, you’d think the Church is chomping at the bit to chop off some heads of unbelievers, glory to Gawd! ... more

Caroline Glick - Sat Sep 22

On Tuesday, Egypt's chief prosecutor issued arrest warrants against eight US citizens. Their purported crimes relate either to their reported involvement in the production of the Internet movie critical of Islam that has received so much attention over the past 10 days, or to other alleged anti-Islamic activities. One of the US citizens indicted is a woman who converted from Islam to Christianity. ... more

In the film “The Truman Show,” actor Jim Carrey played lovable simpleton Truman Burbank who, unbeknownst to him, lived his entire life trapped in a television show. His wife, co-workers and friends were all actors, his entire world a finely constructed stage. ... more

What's wrong with the following Associated Press headline? "Charlie Hebdo cartoon spurs French gov't to order embassies, schools to close." ... more

Jonah Goldberg - Wed Sep 19

The Obama administration's omnibus answer to why the Middle East (and now much of the Muslim world) is in near open rebellion against the United States: The video did it. The follow-up question no one seems to be asking is: "What if the administration's explanation is true?" ... more

Michael Medved - Wed Sep 19

The explosion of anti-American unrest in the Islamic world will damage the Obama campaign in its drive for reelection for two reasons. ... more

"How could this happen?" asked Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in response to the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya that killed Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three others. ... more

David Limbaugh - Tue Sep 18

How can an administration that believes that Islamists need a reason to attack us apart from their default hatred of infidels conduct a coherent foreign policy? ... more

Pat Buchanan - Tue Sep 18

Perhaps we should inspect more closely our irreconcilable conflict -- what Harvard's Michael Ignatieff calls "the fatal dialectic between Islamic rage and Western free speech." Consider first American values, as seen from an ACLU point of view. ... more

Diana West - Fri Sep 14

Two historic attacks on U.S. territory marked the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, and what happened? The Obama administration surrendered our constitutional principles. The first was a "blasphemy" riot that breached the walls of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, whereupon thugs burned the American flag and hoisted in its place the traditional black flag of Islam that flies over al-Qaida and other jihad movements. ... more
