Hot News Headlines

  • 'Migrants' have turned Calais region into bandit country for truckers

    It's a Jungle in Calais all right but the desperate migrants menacing truckers aren't the real problem - it's the ones we never see that you need to worry about. Authorities say the French port is a no-go zone at night. And when you've been 28 hours in the cab of a truck, getting in and out of France, driving through the night, you're left in no doubt they are right. Calais is bandit country. Lawless. Ungodly. Inside the endless gates and fences, you made it. You are safe. Outside, you are a target. 

  • Report: Canada's mosques offer only radical literature

    Leading Canadian politicians have been proclaiming that, despite what former prime minister Stephen Harper contended, Islamic extremism is rare or nonexistent in Canada’s mosques, and that to believe otherwise is racist or Islamophobic. On the other hand, an investigation by two experts finds that in some Canadian mosques and school libraries, extremist Islamic literature is the only brand available. 

  • Nigeria: Mob burns down house of Muslim who tried to help Christian

    A mob has killed eight people by burning down the house of a Muslim man who intervened in the attempted lynching of a Christian student accused of blasphemy. The incident has sparked fears of religious riots in Nigeria, where the population is evenly split between Muslims and Christians, and has been condemned by President Muhammadu Buhari as “barbaric and unacceptable”.

  • Canada's Mounties say female officers can wear hijabs

    Canada's national police force says it is allowing women in its ranks to wear the hijab. A spokesman confirmed Wednesday that the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, known as the Mounties, recently approved the headscarf for its Muslim officers. "This is intended to better reflect the diversity in our communities and encourage more Muslim women to consider the Royal Canadian Mounted Police as a career option," Scott Bardsley, spokesman for Canada's public safety minister, told the Canada-based Global News.

  • Mohamed: Minn. bridge collapse survivor faces terror charge

    A survivor of the 2007 Minneapolis bridge collapse that killed 13 people now faces terror charges after authorities say he traveled to Syria to join the Islamic State group, departing the U.S. just a few weeks after collecting more than $91,000 in settlement money for his injuries. Mohamed Amiin Ali Roble, 20, was charged Wednesday with providing and conspiring to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization.

  • Even in Rio, Islam has trouble playing well with others

    By Alec Rooney

    The Christian Action Network

    Last week, at the Olympics in Rio, an Egyptian judo competitor refused to shake the hand of his Israeli opponent. It’s right there on video for all to see. At a sporting event unrelated to religion, national borders or politics, one man steps back from the offered hand of another, backing away in refusal.

    It’s a shocking thing to see — almost embarrassing. That’s one of the weird things about naked, unbridled hate: It elicits a cringe reaction. You feel the shame of someone so wrapped up in his own smallness, so unaware of how he is coming across.

  • The difference between 'God is Great' and 'God is Love'

    By Alec Rooney

    The Christian Action Network

    Never forget that while Islam declares “God is great” (Allah akbar), Christians declare, quite differently, “God is love.” A recent incident with migrants on a Greek island illustrates these two very different mind-sets, and the contrasting ways that they go about winning new converts.

  • BLM: Barack Loses his Mind

    By Alec Rooney

    The Christian Action Network

    The question really wasn’t whether the White House would be receptive to a petition asking that Black Lives Matter be formally recognized as a terrorist organization.

    The question was only how long they would wait to dismiss it, and how contemptuous and sneering the dismissal would be. 

    We have our answer.

  • Take it from a Muslim: Radical Islam is to blame

    By Alec Rooney

    It takes some serious courage to do what Dr. Zuhdi Jasser of Arizona has been doing. The founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD) has become a prominent media figure, speaking against groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America. His complaint is that these groups try to portray U.S. Muslims as victims, mix Islamism with politics and try to downplay the obvious connections between Islam and terrorism.

  • CAIR: Kissing the pig and lovin’ it

    By Martin Mawyer

    Eating bacon. My grandkids love it. And, full disclosure, I’m a fan of it too. But some people don’t like it. Too greasy. Too fattening. Too salty. Some even complain the aroma gets into the furniture.

    But other people hate bacon for entirely different reasons.

    It offends them. It violates them. It can send them directly to hell.
