First, a border guard serving near Azerbaijan killed seven colleagues before he was shot dead himself. Superior officers said they had tried twice but failed to have him discharged because he was constantly reading about Wahhabism, a conservative form of Islamic fundamentalism.

Army psychiatrist Nidal Hasan, accused in the 2009 Fort Hood, Texas, shootings, told a military judge Thursday his Muslim faith requires him not to shave.

Worse, one of them – clearly a doctor of medicine with a bagful [...]READ MORE »

“In 1980, I watched my first Republican convention with my grandfather.
He was born to a farming family in rural Cuba. Childhood polio left him permanently disabled.

As a boy, I would sit on our porch and listen to his stories about history, politics and baseball while he puffed on one of his three daily Padron cigars.
