CNN host Michael Smerkonish seems taken aback when editor of The Atlantic, Graeme Wood, explains that ISIS is guided by the governing precepts that were embedded in Islam by the Prophet Muhammad and his earliest followers.
In his Atlantic article, What ISIS Really Wants, Wood says: “The reality is that the Islamic State is Islamic. Very Islamic and the religion preached by its most ardent followers derives from coherent and even learned interpretations of Islam.”
Virtually every major decision and law promulgated by the Islamic State adheres to what it calls, in its press and pronouncements, and on its billboards, license plates, stationery, and coins, “the Prophetic methodology,” which means following the prophecy and example of Muhammad, in punctilious detail.
Muslims can reject the Islamic State, but pretending that it isn’t actually a religious, millenarian group, with theology that must be understood to be combatted, has already led the United States to underestimate it and back foolish schemes to counter it.
The fires seem to be in different parts of the ironically named ‘Torch Tower’ apartment building. No cause or motive yet indicated.
“It isn’t that there are a few bad apples in every barrel, it’s that there are orchards full of bad apples in Islam.”
*Not only in Denmark, but in virtually every country that has a muslim population of 5% or more
Speaking of Denmark, here are Muslims rallying in support of the Muslim terrorist who waged deadly gun attacks on Free Speech advocates and Jews in Copenhagen last weekend.
Danish Muslims celebrate the killer as a “hero with a heart of gold.”
At the ‘Defeat Jihad’ summit, Feb. 11, 2015, an interesting discussion about the politically correct use of “radical” Islam when it is Islam that is the problem.
Can’t figure out from where this speaker hails, but his accent sounds like that of a native Arabic speaker. He could be an ex-Muslim or an Arab Christian. Anyone care to venture a guess?
“All the evidence and references that ISIS provides to justify its crimes, its barbarity, and its horrifying violence can be found in Islamic sources and anyone who says otherwise is lying. Don’t tell people Islam has nothing to do with this.”
Hey Obama, Cameron, and other apologists for Islam, are you listening?
Next time you hear that, show them the actual numbers behind that great big, humongous myth.
You probably didn’t notice because BNI is well-equipped to handle this level of cyber attacks. Some of you reported disappearing comments or slow posting of comments and this is the reason why.
In the past few days, BNI has also had up to ten times the usual human traffic that we experience on a normal day due to the shocking Islamic terrorist events in the world.
I greatly appreciate the donations that many of my readers have been kind enough to send me, but it is only a tiny fraction of the visitors I get everyday. The cost of keeping this site up and running, especially during these attacks, is enormous, and there may come a time soon when it is no longer feasible. Even a tiny donation from enough people would make all the difference. So please consider helping BNI to keep doing what we do best for you.

Dean told Maher that “the usual suspects distorted what I said,” arguing that calling these subhuman murderers “Islamic” is giving them a victory. Maher and guest Bret Stephens shot back that it happens to be an accurate label.
Following the recent Charlie Hebdo Massacre in Paris, Pope Francis condemned Mohammed. According to Pope Francis, “it is wrong and immoral to insult another person’s religion.” Yet history shows that Mohammedans regularly insulted other religions.
Hence, the Pope is saying Mohammed and his sycophants were immoral!

What would it take to make us admit we were wrong about Islam? What horrendous attack would finally convince us that Islam is not like other religions in the United States, that it poses an absolute danger to us and our children unless it is monitored better than it has been under the Obama administration?
Charlie Hebdo attacks prove critics were right about Islam.
By Carol M Swain
Tennessean Over the past few years, we have had a man in Middle Tennessee who, like the founders of our nation, has risked his life, fortune and reputation to sound an alarm. After many years of his fighting alone in the wilderness, Andrew Miller Jr. and his Tennessee Freedom Coalition continue to be vindicated by current world events.
Dismissed by some as a kook, a hater and a bitter man, Miller, in my eye, has revealed himself to be a deeply committed man who sounded an alarm about Islam long before comedian Bill Maher and others were finally willing to admit that Islam is positively dangerous to our society.
More and more members of the PC crowd now acknowledge that Islam has absolutely nothing in common with Christianity, nor is it a worthy part of the brotherhood of man I long felt was characteristic of the Abrahamic religions. A younger, more naive version of myself once believed in a world where the people of the Book could and would get along because they all claimed Abraham as their father. No more!
I met Miller a few years ago and heard his story of how he worked on Wall Street and survived the deaths of more than 200 friends in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Those attacks transformed him into a crusader who has risked his life and reputation to warn us about the dangers of radical Islam. He and the coalition have paid a price by being labeled as haters for engaging in activities designed to educate and awaken a sleeping public.
It is fascinating today to watch how world events have vindicated Miller in his warnings about the dangers of radical Islam. It becomes clearer every day that Islam is not just another religion to be accorded the respect given to Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Baha’i and other world religions. The Jan. 7 terrorist attack resulting in 12 deaths at the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo, a satirical magazine that committed the apparently unpardonable sin of lampooning the Prophet Muhammad, once again illustrates that Islam is a dangerous set of beliefs totally incompatible with Western beliefs concerning freedom of speech, freedom of assembly and freedom of association.
As Miller has so often stated, Islam has a problem with the West. Islam will never understand the freedoms that we live and die to preserve. If America is to be safe, it must remove the foxes from the henhouses and institute serious monitoring of Islamic organizations.
Civic education and other indicators of assimilation should be a prerequisite for remaining and advancing in this nation. We must be willing to recognize the dangers of the burka (head-to-toe garb worn by women in some Islamic sects), which allows individuals to completely conceal their identities.
If Muslims are to thrive in America, and if we are to be safe, then we must have ground rules that protect the people from those who disdain the freedoms that most of the world covets.

“Why can’t I say that Mohammed had a wife who was six years old?” As Muslim students at Vanderbilt and their allies gathered to protest an anti-Islam op-ed by a conservative black professor, they probably didn’t expect their party to be crashed by a 1980s-era Saturday Night Livecast member-turned- Concervative Tea Partier.
The College Fix Jackson – who carried a “ban Sharia” sign with her, later tried to convince a Muslim man at the protest to have a debate on “Sharia law and whether we have freedom of speech,” as captured by The College Fix’s exclusive video.
“Why can’t I say that Mohammed had a wife who was six years old?” Jackson said, prompting several protesters to interrupt her and complain that the media were paying attention to her.
The Saturday afternoon protest was organized by Muslim student Farishtay Yamin, who looked on proudly as chants of “Vanderbilt united will never be divided!” and “To reach peace, teach peace!” grew louder. It was in response to an op-ed written in The Tennessean by Carol Swain, a black professor at Vanderbilt Law School.
Responding to the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris but not targeting any person or group on campus, Swain asserted that Islam “poses an absolute danger to us and our children” and called for “serious monitoring of Islamic organizations.”
But Swain’s speech must be curtailed, Yamin said: “What I’m really trying to show her is that she can’t continue to say these kinds of things on a campus that’s so liberal and diverse and tolerant” or “say bigoted things about her own students.”
The sizeable Muslim population at Vanderbilt and the terror-linked Muslim Brotherhood front group MSA Muslim Students Association, one of the most prominent radical Muslim organizations on campus, generated such an uproar about Swain’s op-ed that it drew an administration response:
Dean of Students Mark Bandas emailed the student body to say that that Muslim students had told him they have “felt welcome and safe at Vanderbilt until you read this piece.” Bandas told students to use their freedom of expression to challenge “polarizing speech” and “engage in dialogue with … those with whom you disagree.”
