Christian Bible publishers in Turkey murdered by throat-slitting jihadists.
Back in April, I noted the brutal murders of three Christians who worked at a Bible publishing house in Turkey who had their throats slit by vengeful Muslims.

""The Taliban won't have any option but to kill the hostages." Plus: Taliban talks to AP by satellite phone.

If it's Friday in Pakistan, it's flag-burnin' and effigy-hangin' time. Today, imams will be inveighing against Salman Rushdie, Britain, and the West's incorrigible infidels. I know: When are they not? Here's my column on Rushdie Rage from earlier this week. The conclusion: The deaf and blind will dismiss this latest episode of manufactured Muslim outrage... Read More
Courageous apostates risk death to expose the threat of sharia law.

No, you cannot convert: Three cheers for sharia! Last August, I wrote about the plight of an ex-Muslim woman in Malaysia named Lina Joy.

The NYTimes and WaPo went big yesterday with news of a leaked classified National Intelligence Estimate report, which reportedly claims that the Iraq war is exacerbating Islamic terrorism.

Read Andrew Bostom at Front Page mag today, please: Forced conversions in Islamic history are not exceptional—they have been the norm, across three continents—Asia, Africa, and Europe—for over 13 centuries.
