NORMAN SIMMS: DREYFUS STILL MATTERS BUT NOT THE WAY SOME PEOPLE THINK On the one hand, the news that Roman Polanski is planning to make a film on the Dreyfus Affair fills me with joy. There has been so much new information made available since the series of anniversaries passed by from 1994 – when a hundred years passed since his arrest, trial, condemnation, exile, torture […]


The events of the last few weeks ought to raise the question of whether America is as safe as it should be from terrorists. It is very unsettling to learn that Bimbo Olumuyiwa Oyewole, who was a security supervisor at one of the nation’s largest airports, was not only here illegally, but was using the name and identity of a man murdered in New York twenty years ago. Bimbo was from the same area in Nigeria as the underwear bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who is now serving a life sentence for trying to blow up a plane over Detroit on Christmas Day in 2009. At the same time, al Qaeda has produced a better underwear bomb in an effort to blow up planes over United States airspace.

Bimbo Olumuyiwa Oyewole, who came to the United States illegally from Nigeria, was arrested Monday for identity theft. He was known by his co-workers at Newark Liberty International Airport as Jerry Thomas. He had worked there for about twenty years, and had been using the name of Jerry Thomas since three weeks before the real Mr. Thomas was killed in 1992. The murder has remained unsolved.

Why Invent Mohammed? Why invent a new religion? Robert Spencer’s excellent new book Did Mohammed Exist? collates recent historical research questioning the existence of the historical Mohammed, much of it previously not accessible to a lay American audience. This is a dangerous thing to do, and a courageous one. Some years ago I chided […]

ANDREW McCARTHY: FROM DEMOCRACY TO SHARIA A few weeks ago, amid the “Arab Spring” giddiness, a Shiite mosque opened in Cairo. This was big news. Among Egypt’s 80 million people, there are only a few thousand Shiites. It’s a 90 percent Sunni country, with even Christians vastly outnumbering the Shia. So, in their euphoria over the mosque’s inauguration, Shiite clerics […]

APARTHEID DEBUNKED: MICHAEL CURTIS Unlike Muslm countries, Israel has no state religion, but rather cntains some 15 recognized religions, There are no segregated roads as there are in Saudi Arabia. If Jews and Arabs do live in different areas in the country it is not through state-imposed segregation, enforced by legal means. Discrimination does not exist on the […]

SOEREN KERN: MUSLIM CHILD RAPE GANGS IN ENGLAND It recently emerged that British police had known for more than a decade that Muslim rape gangs were targeting young girls, but they ignored the evidence of rapes because “they were petrified of being called racist.” Rather than acknowledge that there is a problem, Muslim groups have decided to play the victim card instead. […]

RUTHIE BLUM: THE POINT OF NO RETURN The point of no return This week, I attended a conference in Rome, jointly sponsored by the International Council of Jewish Parliamentarians and the World Jewish Congress.
