Boris Johnson might have created a huge furore amongst the weak kneed lefties this side of the pond, by insisting on strong action to prevent extremism and radicalisation, but his red blooded attitude is being praised to the skies on US Fox TV.He has a long list of admirers on US TV, and the Independent reports: “In the London Mayor’s most recent newspaper column, he said that British citizens who travel to “war areas” such as Iraq and Syria should be presumed possible terrorists until they can prove themselves innocent.

Instead they see messages that say it is business as usual.” Continue reading

The US journalist, James Foley, was brutally butchered on video by Jihadist John, of IS. Recent photographs show Hamas vying in cruelty with IS, about to slaughter 18 collaborators who oppose their regime, including two women, on air. Continue reading
