With 12% Of Those Backing The Death Penalty For Anyone Who Mocks Islam In America.
Via Andrew Bostom:
As for the Sharia ruling, it is the punish¬ment of killing for the man with the grand Four Fiqh Sharia scholars, and the same with the woman with the major Shari’ah scholars, and she is jailed with Al-Hanafiyyah scholars, as the prophet, prayers and peace of Allah be upon him, said: “Whoever a Muslim changes his/her religion, kill him/her,” and his saying: “A Muslim’s blood, who testifies that there is no god except Allah and that I am the Messenger of Allah, is not made permissible except by three reasons: the life for the life; the married adulterer and the that who abandons his/her religion.”
Mirroring a shared communal understanding of their clerical leadership with regard to “blasphemy/apostasy,” the results of polling data collected by Wenzel Strategies during October 22 to 26, 2012, from 600 U.S. Muslims, indicate widespread support among American votaries of Islam for this fundamental rejection of the basic freedoms of expression and conscience, as guaranteed under the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. When asked, “Do you believe that criticism of Islam or Muhammad should be permitted under the Constitution’s First Amendment?, 58% replied “no,” 45% of respondents agreed “…that those who criticize or parody Islam in the U.S. should face criminal charges,” and fully 12% of this Muslim sample even admitted they believed in application of the draconian, Sharia-based punishment for the non-existent crime of “blasphemy” in the U.S. code, answering affirmatively, “…that Americans who criticize or parody Islam should be put to death.

The Obama Administration attempting to force Catholic churches, universities and schools to purchase contraception is the equivalent of requiring the NAACP to purchase Confederate flags.

Bill Clinton says he has no regrets about taking millions in foreign cash for his foundation — even though the donations have caused a political headache for Hillary Clinton as she tries to follow him into the Oval Office.
In an exclusive interview with NBC News’ Cynthia McFadden, the former president said his charity has never done anything “knowingly inappropriate.”
Under pressure, the foundation recently announced it will only accept contributions from six Western governments going forward, but Clinton says that’s no acknowledgment the old policy — under which Saudi Arabia gave between $10 million and $25 million, for instance — was a mistake.
“Absolutely not,” Clinton told NBC News during his current tour of Africa to visit a wide variety of the foundation’s projects.
“It’s an acknowledgement that we’re going to come as close as we can during her presidential campaign to following the rules we followed when she became secretary of state.”

Nearly eighteen hours after the Islamist terror attack in Garland, Texas on Sunday evening there is still no statement from President Barack Obama.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest spoke to the press on Air Force One Monday morning as Obama flew to New York City for a day of fundraisers and an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman. Obama was also scheduled to do an event promoting his My Brother’s Keeper initiative.
The Washington Times reported Earnest’s statment:
““We have seen extremists try to use expressions that they considered to be offensive as a way to justify violence not only in this country but around the world, and in the mind of the president there is no form of expression that would justify an act of violence,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters aboard Air Force One.
“We saw a pretty important and notable display of bravery on the part of first responders and … because of their courage the only person that was injured by these gunmen was a security officer.””
The Dallas Morning News reported Obama was informed of the attack last night and was being kept informed on the investigation of the attack.
““The president was informed last night of the violence outside Dallas,” Earnest said…President Obama remains in touch with aides for ongoing updates on the investigation into the Garland event and the suspects.”
Earnest’s comments were made around fifteen hours after the attack.
As of this writing there is still no official statement from President Obama on the attack on the White House website or reported by the press.

NBC neither denies or confirms that Brian Williams was ever an employee.
While Brian Williams is still on suspension from NBC Nightly News, many have speculated Williams won’t be back after the disgraced anchor’s image was recently removed from an icon which was attached to the NBC Nightly News’ podcast on Apple’s iTunes.
Williams’ suspension is due to end sometime in August, but NBC has not announced when it will publicly detail Williams return or ban from its popular Nightly News show. Brian Williams was suspended for six months without pay when details came to light which showed Williams embellished details about his own experiences while reporting on the Iraq War in 2003.[…]
Newsday suggests Williams has not been sitting idly by while his past actions are investigated by NBC. Williams has been doing his own investigations into his past, double-checking his reporting of events to make sure everything is accurate and to make sure he is prepared well for NBC’s final answer on whether he will return to the Nightly News.
The experienced anchor has not spoken publicly about what’s been going on during his suspension because he simply isn’t allowed to while the investigation is ongoing. While he waits for NBC to makes its final decision about whether he will be allowed to return to his job, Williams hangs around nearby in case NBC makes a sudden decision without warning.
Most speculate that decision will not be days away — more like weeks away — even though NBC staffers were rumored to want to let the Brian Williams scandal go permanently away.
