A Bangladeshi-American writer who endured threats from Islamists over his secular views was hacked to death in Dhaka late Thursday,reports say. Avijit Roy, 42, was a naturalized American living in Georgia. He was a frequent critic of radical Islamic doctrine.
One is a jihadist movement that seeks global dominance,beheading journalists, throwing gay people off of rooftops and massacring any perceived foe which crosses its path on the way to restoring a grand Islamic state.
In contrast to others, I confirm Radical Islam exists. Political scientists, including Muslim political scientists, know it as Islamism.

Sami Al-Arian boarded a commercial flight late Wednesday night from Washington Dulles International Airport to Turkey, ending a 20-year con in which he posed as a mere academic and advocate for Palestinian nationalism.

You know the keywords by now: "disenfranchised youth," "unemployment," "ghettos," "banlieues," "oppressed."
An Argentinian prosecutor is suing Argentinian President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner and the Argentinian government for allegedly covering up Iranian involvement in the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, the Algemeiner reports.
