I write this mainly for the benefit of so many of my Liberal friends. I know you have good hearts, but have been badly deceived by your peers and leaders when it comes to the threat of Jihad, and the character of those few brave individuals, who have had the courage to risk everything, to stand up for liberty and human rights…

In yet another curtsy to the politically correct orthodoxy, President Barack Obama’s White House plans to tinker with federal police curriculums for counterterrorism training classes. The first bit of "revamping” is the removal of all material that groups, such as the Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR, find offensive or containing a "negative” image of Muslims.

Journalism watchdog Reporters Without Borders recently made headlines when it demoted the United States in its annual rankings of press freedom for an alleged "crackdown” on reporters covering Occupy Wall Street. Not only was that downgrade deeply tendentious, but it served to obscure a far graver threat to press freedom: the ongoing assault on independent media in Latin America.

M. Zuhdi Jasser is a physician, a Navy veteran, an American patriot and a Muslim who does not hold with those who preach that Islam commands its followers to take part in a war against unbelievers.
"The Third Jihad: Radical Islam's Vision for America," a documentary film Jasser narrated, takes a hard look at those Muslims who are waging this war -- both with bombs and by stealthier means. The film had been among the educational materials used to train New York City police officers. Then, last month, The New York Times went on what one might call a crusade against the movie, publishing a series of articles branding it a "hate-filled film about Muslims," suggesting it was scandalous for the New York Police Department to have screened it, and calling on Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly to "apologize for the film ... and make clear that his department does not tolerate such noxious and dangerous stereotyping."
