ISIS, the Qur’an and the Bible: Fundamentalists versus Modernists“ISIS is No. 1 enemy of Islam” -- Saudi Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz al-SheikhAs of this writing every notable Islamic organization in the world has condemned ISIS, not only for the attacks in Paris, but also the ISIS inspired San Bernardino mass killing by husband and wife, Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik.
We go to war because it’s so easy. It’s as simple as that.
Benjamin Netanyahu's reelection left many of those who desperately want a peaceful solution to the decades old Israeli-Palestinian conflict in a sense of despair. The Prime Minister's victory, in many peoples eyes, virtually closes the door on any resolution between the two sides for the foreseeable future with no way of knowing when or if talks between the two sides will start again.
"The first time you shoot someone, you get a little nervous. You think, can I really shoot this guy? Is it really okay? But after you kill your enemy, you see it’s okay. You say, Great. You do it again. And again. You do it so the enemy won’t kill you or your countrymen. You do it until there’s no one left for you to kill. That’s what war is.
The United States Government is responsible for torturing at least 119 individuals, many of whom were held 'wrongly' and were held for no reason at all.
We have seen this story play out in countless midterm elections before. Members of the party the President belongs to run as far away from him as possible and members of the opposition try to tie members of the President's party to him at every turn.
At what point do you label a military operation a war? Without getting into the pros and cons, the rights and wrongs of bombing Syria, I still wonder at what point the American people, Congress and President Obama are willing to say 'Yes, we are at war with the Islamic State'. Let's try and break this down.
While the rumors of America's impending return to active hostilities in the Middle East have been getting louder by the day, I continued to hold out hope that the President would resist the headwinds and use his prime time address to educate the nation how it is impossible to defeat an ideology with bombs and missiles alone.

Donald Trump broke with decades of American foreign policy by publicly stating that he would be fine with a solution to the Israel-Palestinian crisis that only involves one state. It was difficult to parse what Donald Trump meant, but his full quote read: "So I'm looking at two-state and one-state, and I like the one that both parties like. [Netanyahu laughs.] I'm very happy with the one that both parties like. I can live with either one. I thought for a while the two-state looked like it may be the easier of the two, but honestly, if Bibi and the Palestinians — if Israel and the Palestinians are happy, I'm happy with the one they like the best."
Right wing terrorist Frazier Glenn Miller has been named as the only suspect in the April 13, 2014 Kansas City shooting that killed 3 people. The shooting was specifically targeted at the Jewish community. The suspect was reported yelling "Heil Hitler" numerous times during the the shooting and arrest.
An unemployed motorcycle mechanic walked into Los Angeles International Airport and opened fire, killing one TSA agent and wounding six more before he was shot by airport police. The suspect, Paul Ciancia, had a handwritten note on his person that stated he wanted to "instill fear in their [TSA] traitorous minds," and that he was doing this act of terrorism consciously. Ciancia also wrote of a New World Order and lamenting a fiat currency
Stuart Bowen, the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction, recently released a report outlining massive fraud totaling at least eight billion US dollars. If you haven't heard about this, it may be because many of the major networks chose not to talk about the report at all. ABC, CBS, and CNN all devoted no time to this subject, while FOX News and NBC devoted a combined thirty-five seconds. PBS News Hour and MSNBC are the only networks that devoted more than ten minutes to the story.
Mike Huckabee has begun a new cartoon series that puts a conservative twist on history including hailing Reagan as the savior of America from Jimmy Carter and a bias view on the War on Terror. It involves a group of time traveling children exploring events as they happen. The cartoons display a gross bias and give a distorted account of history.

Would anyone have CAIRed if Marines urinated on dead Nazi soldiers during WWII? (Anyone besides CAIR and nazis, that is). I love these Marines. Perhaps this is the infidel interpretation of the Islamic ritual of washing and preparing the body for burial.
Who are we at war with? We are at war with Al-Qaida and the Taliban, who are Muslims. It's a Catch-22. They are not allowed to kill their fellow Muslims; we're at war with Muslims. The only solution I see is that they not be allowed in the military. Personally, I don't trust one Muslim in our military. If they truly are a devout Muslim and follow the Quran and the Sunnah, then I feel threatened because they're commanded to kill me.
