    Why ISIS now has a 5-star hotel for its fighters

    In renovating and reopening the Ninawa International Hotel in Mosul for its members, the Islamic State group is furthering its propaganda and giving the world a glimpse into its financial success.



    ... The images, which went public via social media, are the latest in the group’s efforts to appeal to would-be jihadists around the world as it seeks to found a Muslim caliphate in Iraq and Syria. The revamping of the hotel also gives Westerners another glimpse into the Islamic State’s success at funding its operations ...

    President, People For the American Way



    I am grateful to live in a country where even someone as hateful as Pamela Geller can speak her mind. She can smear President Obama as the "jihadist in the White House" and speculate that he "choked up" with tears when he ordered the killing of Osama bin Laden. She can say that Pope Francis' call for "affection and respect" towards Muslims means he has "become an imam." She can compare Jewish Americans who support President Obama to Nazi appeasers and call comedian Jon Stewart "the most disgusting Jew on the planet." She can suggest banning Muslims from becoming airline pilots. She can then claim that anyone who doesn't want to hear her speak is "enforcing the Sharia." ...
