How Japanese Anti-Terror Laws Raise Questions Over Safety Versus Freedom

Going through the list of 277 illegal acts, most of them make sense, especially when you take into account Japan’s unique situation of being an ethnically homogeneous, hard working, and honor bound society, whose citizens still pay a worldwide penalty for the cruel and vicious acts of their ancestors.

What Anti-Sharia Protests Teach Us About Both Sides

Several cities across America today held what were supposed to be civil demonstrations against Sharia Law. The demonstrations were put on by a group called ACT for America, which is a non-profit anti-terror group in the U.S. which was founded by terror expert (and terror survivor) Brigitte Gabriel.

You confused yet? Imagine how Trump feels.
