Does sexual frustration fuel Islamic violence? - by Omar Sacirbey - Did alleged Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Hasan lose control, at least in part, because he was sexually frustrated?That's one of the questions being asked in the investigation into the Nov. 5 rampage that left 13 people dead and dozens more injured.

Wafa Sultan: A Poseur Playing off of Ignorance to Further Hate - We must begin this profile with a question: Is there a more contemptible poseur than Wafa Sultan who calls herself an atheist but in the same breath also claims to be a Muslim reformer, which would kind of be like Christopher Hitchens calling himself a Christian reformer?
