... But what is that enemy [in the wake of 9/11]? The unofficial name given to the struggle by the White House under George W. Bush – the War on Terror – avoided answering that question. So, for that matter, did the official name, Operation Enduring Freedom. From the very beginning, in fact, the exact nature of the whole enterprise was swathed in a fog of euphemism and evasion. The men who flew those planes into the Twin Towers and Pentagon were devout Muslims, obeying their religion’s holy book by slaughtering infidels en masse....

In the eighteen years since, the Western political and media establishment have continued to echo that lie. Jihadists have struck Bali, Madrid, Beslan, London, Mumbai, Fort Hood, Paris, San Bernardino, Brussels, Orlando, Nice, Manchester, Barcelona, and New York again – just to name a few of the deadlier and more high-profile incidents. Yet, perversely, the lie about Islam is stronger than ever. Throughout the West, schoolchildren and college students alike have been fed a picture of Islam that’s pure propaganda....

Saturday before last, Judge Jeanine Pirro, whose weekly hour on Fox News airs immediately before Gutfeld’s, opened her show with a powerful editorial about the pathetic failure of the House of Representatives to properly chastise freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar for her repeated expressions of anti-Semitism. In the course of her editorial, Pirro made a thoroughly legitimate point: “Omar wears a hijab, which according to the Koran 33:59 tells women to cover so that they don’t get molested. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”

It was a perfectly fair question, based on an understanding of Islam that’s presumably not shared by the non-Muslim residents of Minnesota’s fifth district who voted for Omar last November – or, for that matter, by the Michiganders who elected Omar’s fellow Muslim Rashida Tlaib. A hijab is, quite simply, a declaration of adherence to sharia law, and sharia law is antithetical to the Constitution. ...

According to reports, she’d been suspended....

What’s really being sacrificed, of course, isn’t just Judge Jeanine. What’s being sacrificed is the truth about Islam itself. It’s the stubborn refusal of the Western establishment to acknowledge this truth that has led to the absurd and, yes, tragic situation in which we now find ourselves: namely, that while the armed forces of the U.S. and its allies have been combating jihadists in Afghanistan for over seventeen years and in Iraq for sixteen years, resulting in a massive loss of life and treasure, we’ve continued to allow barely vetted Muslims to immigrate into our own countries, permitted mosques to proliferate with little or no official oversight of what’s being preached in them, voted more and more Muslims into positions of power, and shrugged indifferently while cities like Dearborn and Hamtramck turned into Muslim strongholds....


Glazov Video: In Defense of Judge Jeanine - Frontpage Editor unveils Fox News’ shameful surrender to Sharia, March 20, 2019:

In the video, Glazov states:

Fox denounced Judge Jeanine's words and what did Fox news say? "We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro's comments about representative Ilhan Omar.  They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly."

My question is what exactly is there to condemn?...

We are at a point in our society and civilization now now that Fox News has fallen, that final fort in the media - Fox News is supposed to be that final fort that tells the truth and yet still tells the truth on many levels...

But on this terrain in terms of the leaders of Fox News or whoever these people are that are condemning people like Judge Jeanine for what she asked

We see now this is a turning point - it's a very sad turning point - because if Fox News cannot make a assessment cannot say anything about jihad and sharia and Islamic law we're in more trouble than we were before.

Because we need to be able to make a threat assessment, and if we can't make a threat assessment then we can't deal with the threat - we can't deal with the ideology that's waging war on us and we can't prevent more attacks - we can't prevent stealth jihad... and the Islamisation of America ...

Wolf Donna Brazile Arrives in the Fox House, by Judi McLeod, Canada Free Press, March 30, 2019:

The hiring of Donna Brazile by Fox News as a contributor should be taken at face value: Proof positive that the Number One Cable Network is no longer teetering toward the left but is now an active part of it.

Brazile’s arrival in the aftermath of Fox News suspending Judge Jeanine Pirro all for asking questions about radical Somalian activist Ilhan Omar on her ‘Justice’ show,  is not only a slap in the face to Pirro and her many followers, but a slap in the face to the network’s many conservative viewers....

... the worrisome conclusion of Fox News offering a voice to deceitful Donna Brazile is that Fox News has now thrown in with the Fake News propaganda that seeks to keep President Donald Trump from being reelected in 2020.


The Real Islamophobia, by Rabbi Yaakov Menken, American Greatness, March 21, 2019:
“Islamophobia” is merely a tool to shield bigots from criticism because they happen to be Muslim. It is also used to slander and muzzle those who would dare to speak out against bigotry.
The true Islamophobia in America is the fear of speaking against bigoted expression from a Muslim, lest one be falsely accused by CAIR and other groups of being a bigot.
