ISIL’s Dehumanization of Women and Girls

If the brutal beheadings, the mass murders of innocent men, women and children and the numerous other atrocities committed by ISIL terrorists are not sufficient reason for the civilized world to “degrade and defeat” ISIL, here is just one more reason. Press Statement by Secretary of State John Kerry, October 14, 2014 Just days after we saw the best of humanity when Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi were awarded the Nobel Peace...

Police think they’re also the prosecutor, judge, and jury

Police think they’re also the prosecutor, judge, and jury… That seems to be one motive behind police barbarities. When they beat someone up or put him in a stranglehold, it’s a “righteous” reaction to someone who has annoyed them in some way. He ran, or he gave ‘em the finger, or whatever. That’s when they put aside their job description and let go with the frustration and wrath of the...

Return to Sobibór

“Sobibór ‘Himmelstrasse’,” by Jacques Lahitte It was many years ago when I first heard about a Nazi death camp named Sobibór, nestled deep in the forests of the Lublin district of South-Eastern Poland. Sobibór was one of three Nazi extermination camps — the other two were Belzek and Treblinka — that had received little notoriety compared to camps such as Auschwitz-Birkenau, even though an estimated...

Secure the people’s house

WASHINGTON — Put a taller fence around the White House complex and lock the doors. Then get rid of the dry rot in the Secret Service bureaucracy, restore staffing to reasonable levels, adopt the latest technology and develop new protocols to replace the ones that didn’t work. But don’t use the recent shocking lapses in presidential security as an excuse to further separate Americans from the symbols of their...

(UPDATED) The Poconos Take Yet Another Hit As State Police Botch Manhunt For Cop Killer Frein & Outrage Hunters

If there was any question that the Pennsylvania State Police-led manhunt for cop killer Eric Frein was in big trouble — indeed, that the trail for the marksman-survivalist in the northeastern Pennsylvania woodlands may have gone cold — a photograph on the front page of the Pocono Record on Monday, the 17th day of the search, betrayed a harsh truth. And now, to make a bad situation worse as the manhunt drags on and state...

Oklahoma beheading: workplace violence or ISIS tie in or ISIS imprinting?

The news from Oklahoma that a man went haywire in his place of work and beheaded a co-worker, and seemed ready to take out as many people as he could in a style now made popular in the snuff videos posted online by ISIS has — what else? — led to a new controversy and speculation being presented as near fact. Was this an example of a mentally loose cannon who absorbed too much of what was on the news and Internet, or the...

When football players break the law, Americans demand they be benched, cut, or suspended before they get due process. But when politicians are indicted they get to stick around, spending our money until a jury of their peers—there’s a terrifying thought—passes judgment. It’s possible that Americans have...

Islamic State Barbarism Ignites Long-Absent Muslim Soul Searching (Die Zeit, Germany)

Since September 11, a continuing concern in the West has been the perception of a lack of Muslim introspection over the use of Islam as a fulcrum for terrorism. Now, with the emergence of the Islamic State, the most bestial, immoral and nihilistic band of terrorists the modern world has ever known, such a dialogue among the Muslim intelligentsia and average people alike appears to have begun. For Germany’s Die Zeit, columnist...
