This is from The Independent:
They are male and female, young and old, black, white and Asian, with hijab and without, but they are all Muslims. And they are all happy.
That’s the message of a new video which shows dozens of British Muslims dancing their hearts out, laughing, singing and smiling along to Pharrell Williams’ hit single “Happy”.
Produced by a group of young Muslims called Honesty Policy, the four-minute video is infectious and its unashamedly positive message has gone viral more than 300,000 hits (and rising) on YouTube this week. Just try and watch it without smiling – you’ll fail.
Aside from making you grin, the point of the video, according its creators, is to show that British Muslims are just as happy, eclectic, cosmopolitan, diverse, creative, fun and outgoing as anyone else. “This video was joining the global movement of happiness inspired by Pharrell,” the Honesty Policy group tells me in an email. “It’s part of something that we as Muslims could find ourselves relating to: happiness. We, too, are happy people, and we promote a message of happiness.”
Here are some more pictures of happy fun-loving Muslims, from Raymond Ibrahim’s website, Islam Translated:
In Idlib, northwest Syria, seven soldiers were recently captured by “rebel” forces. They were tortured and executed, by beheading, echoing Koran 47:4: “So when you meet in battle those who disbelieve [or "infidels"], then smite the necks [decapitate] until when you have overcome them… That is the command.”
Today [April 18, 2014], Al Hadath News published the following pictures of the aftermath, to document the atrocity — and the nature of the “rebellion,” so frequently portrayed in the West as a fight for “freedom and democracy.”

Al-Jazeera America, which launched less than a year ago, is slashing expenses and laying off staff as it struggles to gain a foothold in the US.
Hard to imagine why it should be so unpopular.

If you jump to the 27:00 minute mark of this edition of The Charlie Rose Show, you will find an excellent interview with David Stockman about his wonderful recent book, The Great Deformation. Stockman finally gets the platform he deserves with Charlie Rose, and I urge you to watch him explain why the Fed is a perennial “bubble machine”. Stockman’s takedown of Paul Krugman alone is worth the price of admission — though even the normally neutral Rose can’t resist taking a shot at a former establishment insider turned outsider.
Kevin O’Leary, successful businessman, explains that what is needed to bring people out of unemployment poverty is less government.

There are at least 72 million (last count in 2004) members of the Democratic Party. Maybe they’re not all hypocrites.
Here’s one who certainly is. We grant that he’s a particularly egregious example:
A few Muslim women are trying to free all Muslim women from enslavement by Islam.
They are unlikely to get any help or even sympathy from Western feminists because those “womyn” are wholly preoccupied with their own petty grievances.
Here is the trailer of the film made by the Muslim women to help their campaign. It is called Honor Diaries:
Muslim “men” are already trying to put a stop to the women’s brave efforts. Of course.
CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations), a Muslim Brotherhood organization in the US, demanded that the University of Michigan, Dearborn, cancel the screening of Honor Diaries, on the grounds that the film is “Islamophobic”.
And the University bowed to these terrorist-supporters and complied.
The admirable Megan Kelly says here on Fox News that there have been more cancellations under pressure from CAIR. So many cowards running American institutions!
Pat Condell speaks for us again.
We think Senator Ted Cruz would be the best GOP candidate for the 2016 presidential election. We like what he says, what he stands for. He is strong, brilliant, confident – and right. And he has the presence, the personality, the manner a president should have. In fact we like everything about him – except of course his religiousness, but that doesn’t seem to be having any adverse effect on his political thinking. Here he is making his principles plain in an interview with Genevieve Wood of The Foundry (part of the Heritage network). The principles he states are ours too.
We know that not all our regular readers agree with our opinion of Senator Cruz.
We hope those who do not agree will tell us why.
The students in this video from CNS News are all apparently over 18 so they have the vote. One of them says she is taking a course in politics. None of them knows who the first president of the United States was. Two of them cannot divide 100 by 50 – or do not know (like the president) that there are 50 states in the Union. They’re all being put through the expensive travesty called a university education.
