That said…it’s not only possible that Muslim terrorists will try to exploit this particular child’s talent, it’s *likely*. Especially if he leaves the U.S. feeling hated and persecuted here. So there are valid reasons why we should all be very very nice to young Ahmed. Muslim children cannot all be as public-spirited as Malala Yousafzai.

So, he’s a bright, mischievous, rebellious little kid whose parents happen to be Muslims. How bad is that? Personally I don’t see bias in people’s displays of support for young Ahmed because I’ve displayed support for bright, mischievous, rebellious little kids who are Christian, Jewish, White, Black, even female. I just generally like smarty-pants kids better than the couch-potato type.

What indication do you have that he's bright?
You like the "smarty pants" kids who take apart a clock, put it in a case, and intentionally let it be "discovered" so it will be thought to be a bomb?
You're rather odd.

Donald Trump is hardly in a position to criticize anyone else’s face, voice, manners, accent, hair, etc. He of all people should keep it parliamentary. Hillary’s politics would give everyone plenty to criticize even if she hadn’t uttered a few choice lines like (to Bill at a party) “Those people aren’t rich; they’re useless.” Then she’s *twice* cited brain damage as an excuse for not testifying. Beating her in a straight two-party election would be a cakewalk if Bill hadn’t sent out Trump to be a spoiler, which job includes picking on things poor li’l Hillsie can’t help (shrill? How bad *was* her famous bout with flu?) and making people feel sympathetic toward her.
September 27, 2015 at 3:30pm
Are we talking about the same Hillary? Has her voice changed lately?
September 27, 2015 at 3:26pm
It’s not a sexist remark if her voice *is* shrill. (I’d be inclined to take anyone’s word for that since I seldom watch television.) Trouble is, from what I’ve heard, Hillary has a well modulated voice and usually a bland, calm manner. Eleanor Roosevelt was shrill. I’ve not listened to his voice, but a lot of things Rump says *read* like things that would normally be uttered in the shrillest voice with which a person is endowed.
September 27, 2015 at 3:23pm
One of the world’s best middle school nicknames, granted. Too bad her voice is usually pretty mellow.

Honorable? What about “forsaking all others, keep only to [Ivana] until death doth [them] part”? This guy is such a liar, I wouldn’t take his word that it was raining outside.
Luckily not too many people g.a.s what you think. I'm sure you have been absolutely perfect since birth, though. Write a book, please /s.

Some people get into bickering about evolutionary theory because they don’t want (or can’t afford) to be doing real studies of current life forms. In the same manner, some people get into bickering about global warming because they don’t want to deal with the facts of man-made local warming…which are hard to miss. El Nino was what gave much of the world a record heat wave last summer. Local warming was what made people in certain cities feel that their temperatures were almost as hot as where ISIS are going.
I’m a global warming skeptic, or doubter, in the sense that I’ll wait for the facts to come in (if I live long enough) before becoming a believer or denier. Local warming, however, cannot be denied. Only ignored–by keeping up the quarrel about global warming.

One Facebook button and one Twitter button are plenty. Lose the pop-ups, @TheBlaze, if you want so much as a Google +.
You use this story to post that message to The Blaze? Odd.

@Matt Walsh, you may be a “truth-teller,” but you are mistaken. A fetus is not a baby. Fetus is to baby as egg is to nestling. Fetus is to “person” as egg is to bird. If you ask for fried chicken when you want an omelet, you’re being foolish. This article, like so many articles about the Planned Parenthood scandal-cluster, is foolish. It makes me wonder whether you’d care about fetuses if you’d ever actually looked at one.
Too many of us “commentators not reporters” fail because we leap into issues we care about without doing enough research to be intelligent reporters. Didn’t Glenn Beck warn us about that? It’s an easy mistake, and I’ve made it too…now please correct it.
Yes, you are correct. Inside a feritilized chicken egg is a developing chicken. It has all the gentic information needed to make it a chicken. it has everything required to make it alive. It cannot be anything else. Left unmolested, it will develop as a chicken, through the rest of its natural life.
At conception, a unique, individual, human being is present. there is nothing lacking at that point to make him or her human, and nothing lacking to call him or her alive. they do not become human beings at some arbitrary point. They develop as human beings from that pint forward. Left unmolested, they will continue their development to become just like you and me. We were once what they are now. This is a matter of biological fact.
They are also persons. They can be nothing else, and there is nothing to support the idea that they become persons at some point. they will develop to the point where they are able to express their personhood. They are innocent, having done nothing good or bad, and having no choice in their presence. they are exactly where they are supposed to be, doing precisely what they are supposed to be doing. They are defenseless, completely dependent on their mother, who is responsible for them by every definition of that word. Reason demands that we view them as this.
You should take your own advice and do some more research.
You may care, but you are completly wrong. If you disagree, present objective data to support your point
Millions of innocent lives, 10 sickening, unspeakably and unbelievably inhumane videos and you are still blind. I don’t know what it will take. It can’t be ignorance, because the there more than enough information out there. What is missing in a person that he cannot see truth? What is it that kills one’s humanity? How can anyone live with himself while being passively ignoring, or even actively defending, these atrocities? Priscilla King. Can you answer?
Can you tell with absolute certainty when a fetus becomes a baby? There is one and only 1 event that begins the human journey. That is when egg and sperm combine their DNA. Something your mother at least understood and allowed you to complete the journey.
To Verycobaltviolet. “The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.” (Often attributed to Edmund Burke.)
The murder of an innocent life is evil. Anyone who is not proactive in stopping this evil is guilty for allowing this evil to flourish.
Although many women have multiple abortions, and learn nothing, many have the just one. Once they have murdered their child, it is too late for that child, and for them to rescind.
Many of the women making the decision are unaware of what their decision means, or make the decision under duress. We need to speak to them BEFORE they are in that position. We are trying, but information is suppressed, as with these videos.
As evidenced from the inhumane reactions of the people in the videos, it is probably useless to speak to those who perform these unspeakable acts. They may be beyond redemption. We pray for them.
Which means the other people we need to speak to are the ones who make these atrocities lawful, so this may be stopped, at least legally. That, too, may be useless, because we are seeing how they, too, are heartless, putting self-advancement above innocent life. We need to put people in office who recognize abortion for the atrocity it is.
The apathy and disinterest of supposedly caring, moral people is what is most disheartening. The abomination of abortion itself doesn’t speak to them. If the added abomination shown in these videos didn’t speak to them, what will? Are we soul-less?

If he wants to be talked out of feeling suicidal, Mr. Koran is welcome to call me. (No, there’s not room for him and his sixty pets at the Cat Sanctuary. But I’ll be delighted to publicize his animal rescue effort.)

Sounds like PTSD to me…her head knew the person she was flashing back on was not a police officer, but she was still too panicky to think straight. Props to him for dealing with that.

I’d bet I could interview him without making him mad.

@FloggingtheGOP: If a Muslim parent visiting my nephews’ (Christian) school wanted to pray there, I’d advise The Nephews to stand quietly with their heads bowed and pray silently for peace. I still think that if more of us were on that kind of terms with them, Muslims would be less dangerous to the world. And if you think this Christian has mental problems, why provoke her? Who needs to be cruel to mental patients?

Blood, pain, and death are nothing new, but what about courage? The Bible says “Acquit yourselves like men: be strong,” in the context of advice to be kind, generous, and hospitable. Are blood, pain, and death going to take over your corner of the world? Maybe. But not mine.
September 10, 2013 at 2:04pm
Sorry to hear this.
September 10, 2013 at 2:03pm
Being kind or hospitable wasn’t “safe” in the 1970s either. Nor in the 1920s, nor in the 1870s. That doesn’t mean they’re out of date, or out of touch; it means they call for courage. I think 95% of people are nice, 4% are too feeble-minded to respond to kindness, and 1% are vicious. This has not changed.
