Muslim-Christian Interfaith Group Calls for Blasphemy Laws
By Ryan Mauro
The United Muslim Christian Forum, a friendly-sounding “interfaith” group issued a press release on September 18 demanding the prosecution of the makers of the low-quality Innocence of Muslims film that appeared on YouTube. The Islamist agenda of the group is in written form but if the past is any indication, that won’t stop elected officials and Christian leaders from embracing it in order to prove their tolerance.

Did Biden Win the Battle But Lose the War?
The VP heavyweight championship fight is over. Biden needed a decisive knockout to prop up Obama’s failing campaign. He didn’t get it. Paul Ryan didn’t need a decisive win; he only needed to hold his own and come across as smart and sincere. Mission accomplished. However, something happened during this debate that was decisive. It was style over substance. On style, I think something monumental happened: Biden was not likeable. He tried for the knockout so hard; he tried to show the aggressiveness that Obama did not with such desperation that he came across as mean-spirited, angry, condescending, arrogant, and disrespectful in contrast to a polite, cool, youthful Ryan with fresh ideas. Did Biden win the debate? Arguable. Was he the aggressor? Yes. Did he staunch Obama’s bleeding? Yes. But even if Biden won the battle, he lost the war.
Biden and Obama Debate Performances Prove They Have No Substance
By Doug Johnson
Last night's VP debate was Joe Biden’s chance to turn things around for the Obama/Biden campaign after Obama’s pitiful performance last week at the debate in Denver. Rather than accomplishing that task, Biden proved that he and Obama have no substance to their arguments. Biden's disrespectful and condescending attitude and his smirking and laughing antics aside, some will say that Biden won; some will say Ryan won. I’d say the American people can make a choice from the debate if they use it to realize that the Romney/Ryan campaign gave substantive answers while the Obama/Biden campaign only gave us more rhetoric. And the rhetoric of the Obama/Biden record is there only to cover up and confuse so voters don’t focus on their failed record. [Go here for the vetting of their arguments...]
Romney's Foreign Policy Vision
By Al Fadi
In his speech at VMI, Presidential candidate Romney laid out a plan to reform the current U.S. foreign policy and its handling of terrorism in the Middle East. Mr. Romney pointed out that the attack in Benghazi which resulted in the killing of U.S. Ambassador Stevens was the work of the same group responsible for the 9/11 attack, something that was very evident to the world, and radical Islamists did not even hide. Mr. Romney’s proposal to reform the U.S. foreign policies by exhibiting confidence in the U.S. cause, clarity in its purpose, and resolution in its mind towards these serious regional issues that have carried a negative impact on national security in recent years, is without a doubt the only way radical Islamists can be stopped and reduced, and for them to look up to the U.S. once again as the power it once was. Unless such reformation takes place SOON, the world will continue to experience a major shift in global powers where radical Islamists are at the center of it all. [more...]
