First, a bit of history. Everyone knows, or thinks they know, that 9/11 is an important date, not only in the

Three centuries is a long time to carry a grudge, but 1,400 years is even longer and that goes all the way back to the origins of Islam.
Hillary Clinton was correct in her statement that there was no justification for the acts of violence that occurred in

It doesn’t take much. Muslims are the ultimate “victims.” They thrive on it.
In an article by an author using the pseudonym Archi Medes titled Why Islam is not a Religion of Peace, the writer says, “Like so many things in Islam, appearances can be deceiving, and the apologists are using a typical tactic that is common among Muslims which is victimization.”

We already know all of that. But what we don’t say is that if you eliminate Muslim violence around the world, the world would, for the most part, be a pretty peaceful place.
Over the past three presidential administrations we have had three female Secretaries of State, Madeleine Albright, Condoleezza Rice and Hillary Clinton. All three did credible jobs. All made countless diplomatic trips throughout the
