Ramadan Ends With Hundreds Dead

The Muslim holy month of Ramadan ended [Tuesday]. The death toll from radical Islam’s jihad against Western Civilization stands at nearly 350 people killed in just the past month alone. While Iraqis suffered the worst losses, the carnage was not limited to the Middle East. According to NBC News, Islamic supremacists struck in eight countries spanning the globe from the United States to Bangladesh. Here’s a summary of the Ramadan atrocities, courtesy of the “religion of peace.”

The Muslim holy month of Ramadan ended [Tuesday]. The death toll from radical Islam’s jihad against Western Civilization stands at nearly 350 people killed in just the past month alone.

While Iraqis suffered the worst losses, the carnage was not limited to the Middle East. According to NBC News, Islamic supremacists struck in eight countries spanning the globe from the United States to Bangladesh.

Here’s a summary of the Ramadan atrocities, courtesy of the “religion of peace”:

  • On June 12, Omar Mateen attacked a nightclub in Orlando, Florida, killing 49 people in the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11.

  • On June 21, a suicide bomber targeting members of the Jordanian army killed seven soldiers.

  • On June 27, 43 in Yemen were killed in multiple attacks. According to media reports, one bomb “was concealed in a box of food delivered to soldiers to break their dawn-to-dusk Ramadan fast.”

  • On June 27, eight suicide bombers struck a Christian village in Lebanon, killing five people.

  • On June 28, three suicide bombers attacked one of the world’s busiest airports in Istanbul, Turkey. More than 40 people were killed and nearly 150 were wounded.

  • On June 28, a grenade was thrown into a crowd in Malaysians watching Euro soccer matches, wounding eight people.

  • On July 1, a mob of young Muslims, most of whom were highly educated and well-off, stormed a restaurant in Bangladesh, taking 35 hostages. Twenty victims who couldn’t recite passages from the Koran were tortured and murdered.

  • On July 3, a suicide truck bombing leveled a Baghdad shopping district, killing 250 people, including many children.

  • On July 4, suicide bombers staged coordinated attacks in three Saudi cities, killing four security personnel. Among the targets were the U.S. Consulate in Jeddah and the mosque where Muhammad is believed to be buried.




Comey In The Hot Seat



Washington is still buzzing about FBI Director James Comey’s decision [Tuesday] not to recommend charges against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

In his remarks, Comey outlined the “extremely careless” manner in which “very sensitive, highly classified information” was handled at the State Department. Comey warned that hostile actors may have been able to hack the private server or access information on mobile devices. Experts say it was more likely than not. Nevertheless, Comey abruptly dropped all of it to recommend no charges. His press conference left millions of Americans with more questions than answers.

Now, Comey finds himself in the hot seat. Key members of Congress blasted Comey’s decision and demanded he appear on Capitol Hill to explain himself.



In a statement [Tuesday], Speaker Paul Ryan ripped the “terrible precedent” set by this decision, adding that Comey’s announcement “defies explanation.”



Indeed, additional explanation certainly seems to be in order. Others have been prosecuted for a lot less — here and here — including Bill Clinton’s CIA Director, who was only spared thanks to a last-minute pardon.



It was announced [Wednesday] morning that Director Comey will appear before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee [this] morning.

House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte announced that Attorney General Loretta Lynch will testify next week about the email scandal and Lynch’s private tarmac meeting with Bill Clinton.

Anyone who thought this saga ended [Tuesday] with Comey’s press conference was sorely mistaken.
