Islamism is not a race, it’s an ideology of conquest—and one of the oft-expressed goals of the ideologists is to subjugate Europe and bring it under the rule of the House of Islam

A new book reveals that Pope Pius XII was intimately involved in a plot to kill Hitler. His contacts with German Catholics from the days when he was Apostolic Nuncio put him in a unique position to orchestrate the overthrow of the tyrant. Today, it’s difficult to imagine a pope strategizi...
