Blame the Russian Mob

A few weeks back my wife noticed an odd pattern. Three of the weekly crime shows on prime time TV found the criminals to be members of Russian immigrant crime families. Apparently, this is now the fashion; the Mafia is passé. I asked her if the criminals were ever Muslims. […]

Fatwa issued against bin Laden

It is possible that this is good news. However, let’s consider the other possibilities.1. This cleric is in Spain (or occupied Andalusia as Islamists think of it).
