Women are under attack in the United States. At least that’s the conclusion one would reach when listening to Sandra Fluke, the newest sweetheart of the American left. Fluke made her debut on the American scene earlier this year when she testified before Congress to ask that the public treasury pay for her contraception so […]

It is no secret that an irrefutable link exists between lung cancer and cigarette smoking. Empirical studies supporting the link were published beginning 50 years ago.

Western media coverage of the recent massacre of Coptic Christians in Cairo, Egypt—in which the military killed dozens of Christians and injured some 300—was, as discussed earlier, deplorable.

But it […]

The following is a response to an opinion piece published September 9, 2011 and published online. For background behind the comments below, please read the entire article here. The writer makes a number of errors. He either is intentionally misleading those who know little about Islam, or he himself is ignorant of the historical roots […]

By Tawfik Hamid The recent terror act in Norway by Anders Behring Breivik is -without doubt- a heinous and an evil act. This attack cannot be ignored as it may herald the very early stages of serious communal conflict or worse in Europe. At the same time, what conclusions does it merit? The attack does illustrate […]
