It’s a shame the UK doesn’t have a death penalty

Posted by: Phineas on February 26, 2014 at 1:04 pm » 3 Comments

**Posted by Phineas For these two brave knights of Allah blood-crazed jihadis richly deserve it: Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale were found guilty on 19th December 2013 of killing 25-year-old soldier Lee Rigby, who had served a tour of duty in Afghanistan. Adebolajo, 28, was sentenced to a whole life tariff. Adebowale, 22, was sentenced […]

 

Iraq and Syria: al Qaeda on the march

Posted by: Phineas on January 9, 2014 at 3:54 pm » 1 Comment

**Posted by Phineas Boy, it’s a good thing President Obama destroyed al Qaeda, isn’t it? Otherwise they’d have conquered the world, by now. As it is, we can be grateful they only control more territory than they ever have: From around Aleppo in western Syria to small areas of Falluja in central Iraq, al Qaeda […]

 

Forest Jihad: Islamic terror group claims responsibility for Arizona fires

Posted by: Phineas on July 9, 2013 at 3:50 pm » 4 Comments

**Posted by Phineas A while back, when it seemed like all Colorado was afire, I wrote about the possibility of “forest jihad,” a form of war against the West advocated by al Qaeda as part of a death by a thousand cuts strategy — destroying resources, morale, etc. And while acts of forest jihad were suspected in Europe, Israel, […]

 

Forest fires as an act of jihad?

Posted by: Phineas on June 19, 2013 at 3:11 pm » 4 Comments

**Posted by Phineas Summertime is forest fire season in much of the western United States; here in California, it’s almost an annual ritual to watch some part or another (or several at once) of the state go up in smoke.  And the causes can be as mundane as they are frustrating: firebugs getting their thrills; […]

 

With friends like these: Was Egypt involved in the #Benghazi massacre?

Posted by: Phineas on June 2, 2013 at 2:26 pm » 6 Comments

**Posted by Phineas The idea seems insane — Egypt participating in the assault on our consulate, when they desperately need outside help to keep their economy (barely) functioning? Sounds like the stuff of conspiracy theories, and Egyptian society thrives on such, but journalist Cynthia Farahat presents enough interesting facts to make one go “hmmmm:” The terrorist attack […]

 

[Jihad] Memorial Day weekend and the anniversary of a great defeat

Posted by: Phineas on May 29, 2013 at 4:26 pm » 1 Comment

**Posted by Phineas (Note: this is a reposting of something I first wrote a couple of years ago. Though the Memorial Day weekend is now past, I still think it fitting.) Memorial Day is a holiday set aside for Americans to honor our servicemen past and present and to remember, if even for a moment, […]

 

What’s going on with that Saudi “person of interest/no interest?”

Posted by: Phineas on April 22, 2013 at 3:58 pm » 1 Comment

**Posted by Phineas I’m not the greatest fan of Glenn Beck (1), but I do think he’s asking some good questions about the Saudi national who, on the day of the Boston Marathon bombing, was held as a “person of interest,” but then declared a nobody but, hey, we’re going to deport him anyway: Background […]

 

Boston bombers: Lone wolves or part of a terrorist sleeper cell? UPDATE: “Sleeper cell” malarkey?

Posted by: Phineas on April 21, 2013 at 3:24 pm » 16 Comments

**Posted by Phineas One of the questions outstanding in the wake of the terror-bombing of the Boston Marathon is whether the Tsarnaev brothers acted on their own, as “lone wolves,” or were they part of a terror cell that might well be planning other attacks. At the Daily Beast, authors Christopher Dickey, Eli Lake, and […]

 

#Israel: Anniversary of a jihad mass-murder

Posted by: Phineas on February 18, 2013 at 5:01 pm » 3 Comments

**Posted by Phineas Two years ago this week, five members the Fogel family of the West Bank village of Itamar were murdered — stabbed and their throats slit by Muslims waging jihad fi sabil Allah: “war for the sake of Allah.” Only three children survived; they’re now living with their grandparents: …14-year-old Tamar, 10-year-old Roi […]
