The Middle East Studies Establishment Goes Full Warrior

It’s only to be expected. My colleagues and I at the Middle East Forum have for over two decades criticized the decline of Middle East studies; so now, its syndicate, the Middle East Studies Association (MESA), has for the first time in 14 years replied in kind. The fusillade takes the form of a letter […]

ISIS and Sex Slavery

ISIS Imposes a Partial Ban on Burqas

Before getting to the news item at hand, a personal preface: I am frustrated that Westerners don’t perceive the obvious point that burqas and niqabs, both of which cover not only the head but the whole body, threaten public security.

Twitter bans Breitbart bad boy Milo, but not ISIS-linked London jihad preacher

Revealed here: the priorities of the hard Leftists who control Twitter, and of Leftist social justice warriors who in general turn a blind eye to the jihad and consider it “Islamophobic” to stand against it. “Bias alert: Twitter bans Breitbart bad boy, but not ISIS-linked London loudmouth,” Fox News, August 18, 2016: The Twitterverse has […]

AP claims ISIS recruits have little knowledge of Islam, ignores ISIS’ adherence to Qur’an

This AP study is one in an apparently endless stream of mainstream media articles intended to show us that the Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam, and that the real Islam is peaceful and benign, so we need have no concern about the elites’ suicidal Muslim immigration policies.

Raymond Ibrahim: Confirmed: Islam, Not ‘Grievances,’ Fuels Muslim Hate for the West

An old (and tiresome) debate appears to have been settled by those best positioned to settle it.
