Muslim Religious Freedom vs. Catholic Religious Freedom
By Joseph Klein
In his June 2009 Cairo speech to the Muslim world, President Obama declared that "it is important for Western countries to avoid impeding Muslim citizens from practicing religion as they see fit." However, when it comes to Catholics and other persons of faith who object to being forced to pay for their employees' birth control against their core religious convictions, Obama's answer is that they are to practice their religion as he sees fit.

Why the Debates Must Focus on Radical Islam
By Al Fadi
In last week's presidential candidates' debate, one major and very serious issue was noticeably missing: national security. The issue is very pivotal especially in light of the most recent developments in the Middle East and Libya in particular. It may come as a surprise to many that radical Islamists are watching these debates and have a vested interest in knowing the agenda of either candidate when it comes to dealing with them.

Our hope is that the upcoming presidential debates will devote a major part of the debate on the issue of the global rise of radical Islam, and any serious U.S. efforts to stop it.

Las Vegas Oddsmaker Doubles Down on Prediction: Romney to Win in a Landslide
Yes, you read that headline correctly. I am a Las Vegas oddsmaker (and former Libertarian vice presidential candidate) and here's why I am so boldly predicting a Romney landslide. In November of 2004, only days before the presidential election, I went on CNBC and predicted a Bush victory by 3 points and 30 electoral votes. Every poll at the time showed Kerry in the lead. Bush won by 3 and 35. Newsmax magazine called it the most accurate prediction of 2004. [more startlingly accurate predictions come true...]
Obama's Ring: 'There is no God but Allah'
As a student at Harvard Law School, then-bachelor Barack Obama's practice of wearing a gold band on his wedding-ring finger puzzled his colleagues. Now, newly published photographs of Obama from the 1980s show that the ring Obama wore on his wedding-ring finger as an unmarried student is the same ring Michelle Robinson put on his finger at the couple’s wedding ceremony in 1992. Moreover, according to Arabic-language and Islamic experts, the ring Obama has been wearing for more than 30 years is adorned with the first part of the Islamic declaration of faith, the Shahada: "There is no God except Allah."
