As a Kentucky Fan, this is just one more reason why I don’t like Duke.

Only in academia is comparing Israelis to Nazis a good thing.
Via Free Beacon:
Duke University has hired as the new director of its $3 million Islamic Studies Center a controversial Iranian-American professor whose scholarship has come under fire for anti-Israel bias and who once used a picture of dead Jews in Nazi death camps to illustrate his writing on the Palestinians.
Omid Safi, a former professor at the University of North Carolina, was installed this week by Duke as the new director of the school’s Islamic Studies Center (DISC), which was handed $3 million specifically for the directorship position.
Safi, whose writings on Islam have been criticized as faulty and “utopic” by other scholars, celebrated his new job on Facebook, writing in his “first comments in my capacity” that he seeks to produce “a knowledge that is efficacious, transformative, and above all, beneficial.”
He led these comments with the common Arabic term, “insha’allah,” or “If Allah wills.”
While Safi has received praise from some for striking a “moderate” tone in his writings, human rights leaders and pro-Israel commentators have repeatedly expressed concern about his equivalence of Israel to the Nazis and other controversial rhetoric.
I discovered, quite by accident, that there is a Muslim based economy developing in Canada: Halal and Sharia Compliant Investments, with their own laws specific to Sharia law. It has been developing rather quietly for several years. I found a reference to the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce and Sharia compliant laws from 2011 on Blogwrath after I had already lodged my own complaint with CIBC regarding these investments. I never heard back from CIBC but I did get a notification from Twitter that I was now being followed by the investment broker whom I had reported.
As the chaos in the middle east grows further and further out of control, more Americans are coming to realize that the responsibility for the situation lies directly at the feet of the failed foreign policy of President Barack Obama.
Iraq is not the only example of Obama’s foreign policy disasters, but it may be the most obvious. Not only did Obama pull American forces out of Iraq prematurely, his policy of releasing known radical Islamic terrorists from detention at Guantanamo Bay has both encouraged America’s enemies and provided them with new personnel.
Now the ISIS terrorist group–considered so brutal that al-Qaeda has reportedly cut ties with it–threatens Christians and Shiite Muslims in both Syria and Iraq. Under the leadership of a terrorist released by Obama, ISIS has gone from a relatively small terrorist organization to a major regional threat.
According to Obama and his advisors al-Qaeda went from being “on the path to defeat” to having a standing army.
Via CNS News:
A State Department official who just returned from a seven-week trip to Iraq, said the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) – or the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL) – is no longer just a terrorist group.
“ISIL is no longer simply a terrorist organization,” Brett McGurk, deputy assistant secretary for Iraq and Iran at the U.S. Department of State, said at a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on Wednesday. “It is now a full-blown army seeking to establish a self-governing state through the Tigress and Euphrates Valley in what is now Syria and Iraq.”
ISIS continues to expand its hold on territory in Iraq, including overtaking the city of Mosul on June 10. Since then, the Sunni extremists have targeted Christians who are reportedly being told they have three choices: Convert to Islam, pay a fine or be killed. As a result, most, if not all, Christians have fled the city.
The Obama State Department refused a request by staffers in Benghazi for sandbags and a belt-fed machine gun to help to increase security at the consulate.
They were told it wasn’t “aesthetically pleasing” and “would upset the neighbors.”
Nearly a year before the Benghazi attack on 9-11 2012, the consulate warned the State Department under Hillary Clinton that an Islamic militia group had moved in right next door.
Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer on Tuesday said the American people have the “smoking document” that proves the Obama administration took part in a cover up in the aftermath of the deadly Benghazi terrorist attacks.
Judicial Watch has released newly declassified emails that suggest top-ranking Obama administration officials coordinated in 2012 to make it appear that the deadly attacks on the U.S. facilities in Libya were sparked by an “Internet video” and not “a broader failure or policy.”
Family Security Matters
Along with an especially egregious list of atrocities committed against Christian minorities throughout the Islamic world, March also saw some callous indifference or worse from the U.S. government.
President Barack Hussein Obama was criticized by human rights activists for not addressing the plight of Christians and other minorities during his talks with leaders in Saudi Arabia, where Christianity is banned.
According to the Washington-based International Christian Concern (ICC) advocacy group, Obama did not “publicly broach the subject of religious freedom” during talks on March 28 with Saudi King Abdullah, despite a letter from some 70 members of Congress urging him to “address specific human rights reforms” both in public and in direct meetings with Abdullah and other officials.
(CNSNews.com) – At a time when Hamas continues to fire salvos of rockets into Israel while rejecting a ceasefire proposal, the United States has finalized a deal to provide the Palestinian terrorist group’s leading supporter, Qatar, with weaponry worth $11 billion.
The deal signed at the Pentagon Monday by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and his Qatari counterpart comes just months after a senior U.S. Treasury official in a speech deplored Qatar’s open support for Hamas, and covert funding for jihadists in Syria, including the al-Qaeda affiliate Al-Nusra and the al-Qaeda offshoot the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS).

While broaching the subject in her book about the controversy surrounding her adviser Huma Abedin’s connections to the Muslim Brotherhood, which went mainstream a full year after those connections were discovered by Shoebat.com, Hillary Clinton has inadvertently provided more evidence that Abedin is a stealth agent for the Brotherhood. What may seem like a harmless admission – that Huma traveled to Cairo with Hillary in 2012 – is actually quite a damning revelation considering that Huma (a Muslim) – was married to Anthony Weiner (a Jew) coupled with who was in power in Egypt at the time – the Muslim Brotherhood.
Hillary inadvertently reinforces case against Huma in “Hard Choices”.
In her book, Hillary reveals some of what happened during a meeting with Coptic Christians while visiting Cairo in 2012, after Mohammed Mursi had been elected President and Egypt was on the brink of civil war.
…one of the more agitated participants brought up an especially outrageous canard. He accused my trusted aide Huma Abedin, who is Muslim, of being a secret agent of the Muslim Brotherhood. This claim had been circulated by some unusually irresponsible and demagogic right-wing political and media personalities in the United States, including members of Congress, and now it had turned up in Cairo. I wasn’t going to let that stand and told him in no uncertain terms how wrong he was. After a few minutes of conversation the embarrassed accuser apologized and asked why a member of the U.S. Congress would make such an assertion if it wasn’t true. I laughed and said that unfortunately plenty of falsehoods are circulated in Congress. After the meeting Huma went right up to the man, politely introduced herself, and offered to answer any questions he had. It was a characteristically gracious move on her part.
Why did Abedin – a devout Muslim who is married to a Jew in Weiner – join Hillary Clinton on a trip to Egypt when that country was ruled by the extremely fundamentalist Muslim Brotherhood and President Mursi? Did the secret service object? Did Mursi?
That Abedin was with Clinton during that visit received scant media attention at best. According to a Daily Beast report from a year later, it was Abedin who pushed for Clinton to make the trip.
Why would a Muslim woman married to a Jew push for to visit a country run by the extremely fundamentalist Muslim Brotherhood???
As was the case all throughout the summer of 2012, extremely legitimate questions were never answered, like how Abedin ever received a security clearance when her family members have irrefutable links to the Muslim Brotherhood. This is not a matter of guilt by association; it has always been about conflict of interest. In her book, Hillary does not relay any of the questions asked by the “agitated participant” or any of Huma’s responses to them.
