Muslim UK Cabinet Minister Tries to Spread Christmas Cheer

November 12, 2012

September 25, 2009

We here at AOR are usually pretty tough on the mainstream media, but this is an instance where we have to give credit where credit is due.  The CBS affiliate in Philadelphia has provided a valuable service by alerting the public to the fact that Philadelphia police are on the lookout for a group of [...]
