“Quando mio marito, Angelo Rizzoli, era in carcere mi chiedeva di contattare Agnelli, Craxi, Andreotti. Andai da quest’ultimo, che mi gelò chiedendomi cosa sapessi delle azioni del Nuovo Banco Ambrosiano“. Eleonora Giorgi consegna a La Confessione di Peter Gomez, in onda sul canale Nove il 2 marzo alle 23, il racconto della sua gioventù ribelle, della dipendenza dall’eroina e del matrimonio non proprio dorato con Angelo Rizzoli, editore del gruppo Rizzoli-Corriere della Sera dal ’78 all’83. Una vicenda amorosa che incrocia gli scandali più bui della prima Repubblica, dalla Loggia segreta P2, al crac del Banco Ambrosiano, passando per la misteriosa morte del banchiere Roberto Calvi, trovato con una corda stretta attorno al collo, a Londra, il 18 giugno 1982.
L’anno prima, il marito di Eleonora Giorgi, che quest’anno debutta nel cast di Ballando sotto le stelle, è in carcere. Il suo nome compare negli elenchi della Loggia Propaganda Due rinvenuti a villa Wanda, una proprietà di Licio Gelli a Castiglion Fibocchi, nell’aretino. Un sequestro che scuote l’Italia intera. Tra i 962 iscritti compaiono i nomi dei personaggi più in vista dell’epoca, tra cui Angelo Rizzoli (tessera 532), l’allora direttore de Il Corriere della Sera Franco Di Bella e il direttore generale Bruno Tassan Din. “Quando scoppiò lo scandalo, come lo avete affrontato in casa?”, chiede Peter Gomez. “Io ero nel pieno della mia carriera. – ricorda la Giorgi – Improvvisamente notai che tutto intorno a m
The idea behind the “inciting prostitution” charge is that it is women’s responsibility to prevent men from being tempted. If she takes off her hijab, she is inviting them to be tempted. And that’s tantamount to prostitution, in the Sharia-wracked minds of Khamenei and Rouhani. “Women protesting against wearing the hijab in Iran will be […]

He tweeted Friday: “The NRA is a terrorist organization. The […]
Sweden: Muslim migrant boy rapes man at gunpoint
[Editor’s note: This kind of behavior is widely accepted among Muslims in Afghanistan and elsewhere. It derives indirect justification from these Qur’anic passages promising male believers boys in Paradise: “Those are the ones brought near in the Gardens of Pleasure, a company of the former peoples and a few of the later peoples, on thrones […]
Erdogan wishes martyrdom on young girl, “Allah willing”
The Islamic concept of martyrdom involves killing Infidels and being killed in the process, as in this Qur’an verse: “Indeed, Allah has purchased from the believers their lives and their properties, for that they will have Paradise. They fight in the cause of Allah, so they kill and are killed.” (Qur’an 9:111) “One user said […]
Irish government paid media to promote plan to bring in one million Muslim migrants
The Irish government has been slammed for paying journalists to write good news stories about Project Ireland 2040. Unveiled by the government last week with a commitment to spend €116 billion, the document outlines plans to boost the Irish nation’s 4.7 million population by another million using mass migration. As absurd as it sounds for the […]
Kenya: Muslims murder three Christians, scream “these infidels should be wiped out”
Suspected members of Islamic jihad group Al Shabaab shot three Christians to death in northeastern Kenya after bursting into their sleeping quarters at a primary school. Murdering Christians is a common activity for these jihadis, for the reason indicated by one of the murderers, who said: “These infidels should be wiped out.” Islamic jihadis have […]
Austria: Woman who complained about loud Islamic prayers in her hospital room told to see a psychologist
“I am appalled that in Austria you have to adapt to a foreign culture and not the other way around. And nobody is defending against it. Instead, the Austrians are sent to a psychologist.” Yes, because Austria isn’t diverse enough yet. “Austria: Woman who complained about Muslim prayers told to see a psychologist,” Voice of […]
Kenya: “Imams should embrace Islam teaching of peace, tolerance, and brotherhood”
Do politicians such as Aden Duale think that if they keep repeating the claim that Islam promotes peace, tolerance and brotherhood, that it will become true? Does Aden Duale think that the Islamic scholars and imams of Kenya don’t know what’s taught in the Qur’an and Sunnah? It is noteworthy, if they do, that he […]
Sweden’s feminist party: Completely opening borders and keeping terrorists in the country leads to a better world

But by then it will be far too late. “Sweden’s feminist party: Completely opening borders and keeping terrorists in the country leads to a better world,” Voice of Europe, February 25, 2018 (thanks […]
France: Acid placed in stroller severely burns rabbi’s baby, cops say anti-Semitism “possible” motive
“Possible”? Really? Who else could have done this? “Right-wing extremists”? Not likely. In 2015, French Jewish leader Roger Cukierman said: “All violence, and we must say this, all violent acts today are committed by young Muslims.” Is France diverse enough yet? “French rabbi’s baby burned after solvent placed in stroller,” JTA, February 21, 2018 (thanks […]
Pakistan: Intel officers try to force cousin of man accused of blasphemy to perform oral sex on him
They wanted to humiliate and degrade these two Christians, and possibly get evidence for a case against them of homosexuality. Pakistan’s blasphemy laws are an endless source of persecution and misery for Christians and other non-Muslims in that country, but no one cares. It isn’t as if something serious such as “Islamophobia” were being committed. […]

UK: Muslim migrant rapes pregnant woman in her own bed, lawyer says he has a “traumatic past”
“The woman, who was in bed with her husband, awoke to find Rashidi pulling at her pyjama bottoms.” Diversity is our strength! Sexual assault occurs in all cultures, but only in Islam does it have divine sanction. The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a […]
Israeli Jew converts to Islam, plots to join the Islamic State
Around the world we see it: people from all kinds of backgrounds convert to Islam and end up plotting treason and mass murder. Yet authorities remain completely incurious about this recurring phenomenon. “Jewish convert to Islam jailed over plan to join IS,” Times of Israel, February 26, 2018 (thanks to David): The Nazareth district court […]
Video: Robert Spencer on The Milo Show on Malala and the PC FBI
Yesterday I appeared on The Milo Show. Milo and I had a wide-ranging and often riotous discussion. Here are two clips, on Malala and the Obama FBI’s scrubbing all mention of Islam and jihad from counterterror training materials: The whole show, which was great fun, is available to subscribers here.
Germany: The “Anti-Merkel,” vociferous critic of her Muslim migration policies, joins Merkel’s cabinet
Angela Merkel has given the job of health minister to her biggest critic, Jens Spahn, and according to a report by Reuters, Spahn does not intend to stop being the “anti-Merkel”; he will work toward a “rightward shift in the party once he becomes health minister.” Amid growing protests against migration in Germany, Spahn is […]
UK’s counterterror top dog: “Islamist” and “far right” “extremists” should have their children taken away
This is chilling, because what the British government usually means by “far right extremists” are those who are trying to resist that government’s policies of appeasement and accommodation of Islamic supremacists. Those who do not want to see a Britain under Sharia are “far right extremists” (including me). The idea that there is some “far […]
UK: Scotland Yard claims “Islamophobic hate crime” is “hugely underreported,” tells Muslims to report more
Chief Superintendent Dave Stringer, Scotland Yard’s head of community engagement said: “The Met has seen a steady increase in the reporting of all hate crime, particularly racist and religious hate crime. Despite this rise, hate crime is hugely underreported and no one should suffer in silence.” How does Stringer know that “anti-Muslim hate crime” is […]

Why Jihad Watch?
Why Jihad Watch? Because non-Muslims in the West, as well as in India, China, Russia, and the world over, are facing a concerted effort by Islamic jihadists, the motives and goals of whom are largely ignored by the Western media, to destroy their societies and impose Islamic law upon them — and to commit violence to that end even while their overall goal remains out of reach. That effort goes under the general rubric of jihad.
Jihad (Arabic for “struggle”) is a central duty of every Muslim. Muslim theologians have spoken of many things as jihads: the struggle within the soul, defending the faith from critics, supporting its growth and defense financially, even migrating to non-Muslim lands for the purpose of spreading Islam. But violent jihad is a constant of Islamic history and a central element of Islamic theology. Many passages of the Qur’an and sayings of the Islamic prophet Muhammad are used by jihad warriors today to justify their actions and gain new recruits. No major Muslim group has ever repudiated the doctrines of armed jihad. The theology of jihad, which denies unbelievers equality of human rights and dignity, is available today for anyone with the will and means to bring it to life.
In Islamic history and doctrine violent jihad is founded on numerous verses of the Qur’an — most notably, one known in Islamic theology as the “Verse of the Sword”: “Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is forgiving, merciful” (9:5). Establishing “regular worship” and paying the “poor-due” (zakat) means essentially that they will become Muslim, as these are two of the central responsibilities of every Muslim. Sahih Bukhari, which Muslims regard as the most trustworthy of all the many collections of traditions of Muhammad, records this statement of the Prophet: “Allah assigns for a person who participates in (holy battles) in Allah’s Cause and nothing causes him to do so except belief in Allah and in His Messengers, that he will be recompensed by Allah either with a reward, or booty (if he survives) or will be admitted to Paradise (if he is killed in the battle as a martyr).”
Ibn Khaldun (1332-1406), a pioneering historian and philosopher, was also a legal theorist. In his renowned Muqaddimah, the first work of historical theory, he notes that “in the Muslim community, the holy war is a religious duty, because of the universalism of the Muslim mission and (the obligation to) convert everybody to Islam either by persuasion or by force.” In Islam, the person in charge of religious affairs is concerned with “power politics,” because Islam is “under obligation to gain power over other nations.”
Violent jihad is a constant of Islamic history. The passages quoted above and many others like them form a major element of the motivation of jihad warriors worldwide today. No major Muslim group has ever repudiated the doctrines of armed jihad. The theology of jihad, with all its assumptions about unbelievers‚ lack of human rights and dignity, is available today as a justification for anyone with the will and the means to bring it to life.
Jihad Watch is dedicated to bringing public attention to the role that jihad theology and ideology play in the modern world and to correcting popular misconceptions about the role of jihad and religion in modern-day conflicts. By shedding as much light as possible on these matters, we hope to alert people of good will to the true nature of the present global conflict.
Jihad Watch also includes content once posted on Dhimmi Watch, formerly a separate page on this site, tracking dhimmitude. Dhimmitude is the status that Islamic law, the Sharia, mandates for non-Muslims, primarily Jews and Christians. Dhimmis, “protected people,” are free to practice their religion in a Sharia regime, but are made subject to a number of humiliating regulations designed to enforce the Qur’an’s command that they “feel themselves subdued” (Sura 9:29). This denial of equality of rights and dignity remains part of the Sharia, and, as such, are part of the legal superstructure that global jihadists are laboring to restore everywhere in the Islamic world, and wish ultimately to impose on the entire human race.
If dhimmis complained about their inferior status, institutionalized humiliation, or poverty, their masters voided their contract and regarded them as enemies of Islam, fair game as objects of violence. Consequently, dhimmis were generally cowed into silence and worse. It was almost unheard-of to find dhimmis speaking out against their oppressors; to do so would have been suicide. For centuries dhimmi communities in the Islamic world learned to live in peace with their Muslim overlords by acquiescing to their subservience. Some even actively identified with the dominant class, and became strenuous advocates for it.
Spearheaded by dhimmi academics and self-serving advocacy groups, that same attitude of chastened subservience has entered into Western academic study of Islam, and from there into journalism, school textbooks, and the popular discourse. One must not point out the depredations of jihad and dhimmitude; to do so would offend the multiculturalist ethos that prevails everywhere today. To do so would endanger chances for peace and rapprochement between civilizations all too ready to clash.
But in this era of global terrorism it must be said: this silence, this distortion, has become deadly. Before 9/11 it was easy to ignore and whitewash dhimmitude, but the atrocities changed the situation forever. In jihads throughout history, untold millions have died. Tens of millions have been uprooted from their homes. Tens of millions have been stripped of their cultural identity. To continue to gloss over the destruction wrought by jihad ideology and its attendant evil of dhimmitude is today to play into the hands of jihadists, who have repeatedly vowed to dhimmify the West and destroy any recalcitrant elements. While jihadist groups, even with their global diffusion, are not strong enough to realize this goal by themselves, they have a potent and destructive ally, a genuine fifth column, in the dhimmi academics and dhimmi journalists they have recruited in the West. They have succeeded in confusing millions in the West into mistaking honesty and truthfulness for bigotry, and self-defense for oppression.
Before it’s too late for Western Europe and the United States, which gave birth to the traditions of freedom and equality of rights for all that shine today as lights in the entire world, this must be stopped. Therefore Jihad Watch seeks to bring public attention to:
The plight of the dhimmis, an immense but almost completely ignored ongoing scandal that continues in Muslim countries today;
The plight of women under Sharia provisions, similar to conditions imposed on dhimmis, in the denial of equal rights and dignity;
Slavery in Islamic lands, which continues today, justified by Sharia-‘s dhimmi codes;
The integral role of jihad and dhimmitude ideology in global terrorism today;
The license that academic and journalistic whitewashes of dhimmitude gives to radical jihadist enemies of human rights for all.
Jihad Watch fights to ensure that deeds done in the darkness for so long will not continue to be done. The light of world attention is anathema to the proponents of jihad and dhimmitude: we have seen in recent years that women sentenced to stoning for adultery, often victims of rape unjustly accused thanks to Sharia laws disallowing rape victims’ testimony, were freed following international outcry. Jihad Watch seeks to provoke similar, continuous and increasing outcry wherever and whenever the Sharia’s institutionalized injustices threaten dhimmis and women.

The Islamic concept of martyrdom involves killing Infidels and being killed in the process, as in this Qur’an verse: “Indeed, Allah has purchased from the believers their lives and their properties, for that they will have Paradise. They fight in the cause of Allah, so they kill and are killed.” (Qur’an 9:111)
“One user said it was the state’s duty to protect children, not to ‘kill’ them. Another said: ‘you don’t wish death for a child, you never say: “God willing.”‘”
You don’t, that is, unless you’re a true believer, intent on restoring Turkey as an Islamic state and even as the seat of the caliphate — and it is increasingly clear that is what Erdogan’s agenda is.
“Turkish president criticized for speaking of martyrdom for small girl,” Associated Press, February 27, 2018:
ANKARA, Turkey — Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has come under criticism for telling a small girl dressed in a military uniform that she would be honoured if she were “martyred” for Turkey.
Erdogan spotted the weeping-and-saluting 6-year-old Amine Tiras while delivering a speech at his ruling party’s congress in the city of Kahramanmaras on Saturday, and had her brought on stage.
After trying to comfort the girl by kissing her on both cheeks, Erdogan told the crowd: “She has the Turkish flag in her pocket. If she becomes a martyr, God willing, this flag will be draped on her.”
Some people were appalled and took to Twitter to criticize the president.
One user said it was the state’s duty to protect children, not to “kill” them. Another said: “you don’t wish death for a child, you never say: ‘God willing.”‘…
