Assassination in Tunisia

Thousands of angry protesters took to the street of the Tunisian city of Sidi Bouzid after leading opposition politician Mohamed Brahmi was assassinated in the capital Tunis. Brahmi was shot dead outside his home in Tunis on Thursday in the second such assassination this year, setting off violent protests against the Islamist-led government in the capital and elsewhere.

Islamic Militants Target Kids

Islamic extremists attacked a boarding school in northern Nigeria, murdering close to 30 students and a teacher in cold blood. Once again, adherents of Islam demonstrate an amoral and violent streak, leading them to commit vile deeds in a misguided bid to advance their religion. This cowardly bunch will never clean up its act.

Anti-Morsi Protests Rock Egypt

Mass protests calling for the resignation of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi and an early presidential election are taking place in Cairo and around Egypt. His opponents say he has failed to tackle economic and security problems and instead pushed the Islamist agenda of the Muslim Brotherhood party.The protests come on the first anniversary of Morsi’s election as Egypt’s first Islamist president.

Christians Most Persecuted

A new report has determined that Christians are the world’s most persecuted religious group, particularly in Islamic nations. But little is being done to aid the victims because political leaders in Christian countries are either afraid of being dubbed racists or else simply spineless. Christine Williams addresses the issue in a speech given this week in Toronto on the occasion of “A Day Of Mourning For Persecuted People In Islamic Regimes.” H/T Blazing Cat Fur

Boston Bomb Suspect Speaks

For the first time since he was arrested by police, the voice of the teenager suspected of the Boston marathon bombing can be heard. Needless to say, none of the US media giants scored the coup, but rather an overseas news outlet — Channel 4 from Great Britain.

Islam: Fount of All Goodness

No shrinking violet, Egyptian Cleric Mahmoud Shaaban declared on national television that everything good in Europe can be traced to tenets in Islam. Likewise, he said, the United States can fix its economic woes by embracing Islamic economic principles, such as providing interest-free loans.

Left Soft on Terrorism

Liberals have a difficult time recognizing radical Islam. They have an even harder time uttering these words, or other words like terrorism, jihadism and radical Muslim. The left does not have difficulty blaming Christians for every perceived injustice, so why can’t they blame jihadists for the Boston Marathon attack, the London beheading or Benghazi?

More Muslim Mayhem

What does the beheading of a British solider in Woolwich and the Boston Marathon bombings have in common? Simple. You could never guess the religious orientation of the perpetrators from reading the US newspapers. In this edition of The Great Eight, Ben Crystal has some fun with the media’s Islamophobia, as well as wondering aloud where’s Colonel Klink when the IRS needs him most.

Rioting Spreads in Sweden

A sixth night of rioting has hit Sweden’s capital of Stockholm, despite police reinforcements being deployed. The rioting also spread outside the capital for the first time on Friday, with Islamic youths, many of them immigrants, torching vehicles and buildings in two nearby towns.

Terror in Woolwich

Channel 4′s Home Affairs Correspondent in Great Britain, Darshna Soni, looks at how events unfolded in Woolwich through the eyes of those on the street who were caught up in it all, and witnessed Islamic extremists ramming and then hacking up a British soldier with meat cleavers.

Meanwhile, the radical Muslim cleric who taught and influenced the terrorists — former Al-Muhajiroun leader Anjem Choudary — refused to accept any personal responsibility for the bizarre and brutal murder, seeking instead to blame the British government because it has sent troops to fight in Afghanistan. The question remains: Why isn’t Choudary rotting in a jail cell? He’s nothing more than a common thug and criminal masquerading as a cleric.
