Just across the street is an advice centre that offers rulings to the community on points of Islamic law..."

"Hena Akhter's last words to her mother proclaimed her innocence. But it was too late to save the 14-year-old girl. Her fellow villagers in Bangladesh's Shariatpur district had already passed harsh judgment on her. Guilty, they said, of having an affair with a married man. The imam from the local mosque ordered the fatwa, or religious ruling, and the punishment: 101 lashes delivered swiftly, deliberately in public. Hena dropped after 70. Bloodied and bruised, she was taken to hospital, where she died a week later..."

"Yosma A., 40, mother of six and Kars resident, was mutilated by her husband and brother-in-law on Sunday. The woman whose nose was cut off took shelter in her father’s home and filed a complaint against the abusers.

A Non-Muslim Murders Someone (14 July 2009)
"In my article 13 Beautiful Muslim Women I displayed only 13 of thousands of Muslim women who are annually disfigured by acid thrown in their face for the crime of asking for a divorce.

Another Muslim Woman Loses Her Head Over a Man (19 June 2009)
"The photo above is of Suzanne Tamim. A very attractive young woman indeed and a Muslim to boot. I mention the fact that she was Muslim because I am surprised she wasn't killed long before now, given how brazen she must have looked to Muslim men. OH, did I forget to mention she was killed?..."
Muslim Women Slaves in Denial (26 September 2007)

"Slavery was not an Islamic invention, nor did Islam have a monopoly in it. ... slavery had been a prominent feature of all major civilizations throughout recorded history..."
Islamic Slavery Part 1: Introduction (03 September 2011)
"One major criticism of the West by all, and particularly by Muslims, pertains to the trans-Atlantic slave-trade by European powers and their mindless exploitation and degrading treatment of slaves in the Americas and West Indies. Muslims are often quick to point fingers at the European slave-trade; ... [and] an overwhelming majority of Muslims believe that Islamic history is devoid of the abhorrent practice of slavery. ... [but] Islamic slavery has been the most horrible, yet the least known slavery in history..."

Black Slavery is Alive in 2001

The Racism and Slavery of Islam (No Date)
"Racism is the belief that inherent different traits in human racial groups justify discrimination. It is applied especially to the practice or advocacy of racial discrimination of a pernicious nature (i.e. which harms particular groups of people). Modern usage often equates 'racism' and 'racial discrimination' and defines the latter term only as applying to pernicious practices. Racism is popularly associated with various activities that are illegal or commonly considered harmful, such as extremism, hatred, xenophobia, malignant or forced exploitation, separatism, racial supremacy, mass murder (for the purpose of genocide), genocide denial, vigilantism (hate crimes, terrorism), etc..."

The Invention of Islamophobia (4 January 2011)
"At the end of the 1970s, Iranian fundamentalists invented the term 'Islamophobia' formed in analogy to 'xenophobia'. The aim of this word was to declare Islam inviolate. Whoever crosses this border is deemed a racist. This term, which is worthy of totalitarian propaganda, is deliberately unspecific about whether it refers to a religion, a belief system or its faithful adherents around the world..."
Denying the Jihad Against Christians (3 January 2010)
"An Islamic jihad-martyrdom suicide bomber murdered twenty-two people and wounded eighty more at the Coptic Christian Church of the Saints in Alexandria, Egypt on New Year’s Eve. Predictably enough, this mass murder has not resulted in any worldwide revulsion against Islamic jihadists, or general recognition of how Islamic supremacists and jihadists are persecuting Christians not only in Egypt, but in Iraq, Pakistan, Indonesia, Nigeria, and elsewhere also. Instead, it has brought only new and imaginative twists on the usual evasion, obfuscation, denial and finger-pointing that generally follow jihad attacks..."
We Hypocritical Muslims (15 December 2010)
"On an international level, people from every religion exchange greeting cards to commemorate different occasions. We all know that most of these cards are meant for the wastebasket. What if a Christian or Jew saw a Muslim salesperson throwing his card with Jesus or Moses’ name on it and called the police to register a case of blasphemy against him/her and the police arrested the violator? Most western readers would laugh out loud at this unlikely scenario but it is not a laughing matter for a physician from Hyderabad, Pakistan, who, unwittingly, threw a Muslim’s visiting card in the trash basket. He apologised to the offended party and yet the police arrested him under pressure from religious fanatics..."
Pakistan President Urged Not to Pardon Christian Woman (24 November 2010)
"Two prominent Pakistani Muslim leaders threatened Wednesday to call for nationwide protests if the president pardons a Christian woman sentenced to death for insulting the Muslim prophet Mohammed.

The Left's Delusion Over Islam is Baffling to Middle Eastern Christians (17 November 2010)
"Two more Christians murdered in Iraq on Monday night and another three yesterday, as the community is driven to extinction. And on the Today programme earlier this week there was yet another segment about this persecuted minority, perhaps suggesting that the media are waking up to what many Iraqis themselves call 'genocide' ... However the Left largely remains in denial about the situation faced by Middle Eastern Christians, despite widespread evidence by various human rights organisation[s]..."

"They are crossing the border illegally and violently displacing the indigenous population whose homes and possessions they either destroy or occupy. They are attacking the young, the elderly, and especially the girls and women, whom they kidnap, forcibly convert, or traffic into brothels. The locals are terrified of them. The police rarely come to their aid, nor do the politically correct media or government. Both are terrified by the criminals and terrorists who are riding these immigrant waves..."

Born-Again 'Son of Hamas' Now Fights 'Islam's God' (20 March 2010)
"The son and heir apparent of a founder of the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, Yousef broke the heart of his pious, close-knit family and put their lives and his own in danger with his announcement ... that he had become a follower of Jesus Christ. Today, the threats have only intensified since he shifted his mission from saving lives by battling terrorism to saving Muslim souls ... the Global Islamic Media Front released a statement ... citing Islam's prophet Muhammed: 'Whoever alters his religion, kill him'..."
"Moral equivalency is a matter of dogma in the mainstream media: When five hundred Christians were massacred in their homes by machete-wielding Muslims in Nigeria's Plateau Province on the night of March 7, news reports claimed it was simply retaliation for previous attacks on Muslims.

Forced Conversions to Islam (30 May 2009)
"In his Discovery of India Jawaharlal Nehru appears to attribute the conversion of Hindus to Islam to Islam's purported egalitarian character and hence its 'mass appeal': 'The idea of brotherhood of Islam and of the theoretical equality of its adherents made a powerful appeal, especially those of the Hindu fold who were denied any semblance of equal treatment.' But strangely, India's demographic data stands in complete contradiction to such a conclusion..."
Do They Know It's Christmas? (19 December 2005)
"Ahmad El Achwal was returning to his home ... near the West Bank city of Nablus after a hard day's work ... As he approached the entrance to his home, four masked gunmen approached and opened fire, killing him. On the streets of the West Bank and Gaza, where the rule of law is that there are no rules and no law, this type of rough justice is regularly meted out by PA 'security' forces..."
"In another decade or so, given present trends, there will be few if any Christians living in Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus. The same is true of Nazareth, where Jesus grew up, and even of Jerusalem, where nearly 600 historic churches still stand. Christians in the Palestinian territories have dropped from 15 percent of the Arab population in 1950 to just 2 percent today. Both Bethlehem and Nazareth, which had been overwhelmingly Christian towns, now have strong Muslim majorities..."

"The past week has shown us what a Post-American world looks like and it isn't a batch of treaties that lead to men and women from around the world meeting to decide how to feed the hungry, clothed [sic] the naked and take everyone's guns away to banish violence from the world. It's mobs of violent savages ransacking embassies while their suited brethren use it to explain to our decadent leaders that the only way we will have peace is if we let them decide what sections of the Bill of Rights we get to keep..."

Psy-War Against the West (12 January 2011)
"One of the most effective weapons in the armoury of psychological warfare is that, by definition, the targeted victims don’t have a clue that they are being played for suckers. This article on Steve Emerson’s Investigative Project on Terrorism site is therefore valuable in shedding some light on the way in which the Islamists are using psychological warfare against the west..."
A New Role for Jihadi Media (11 January 2011)
"Aspiring jihadis need to improve their media skills, such as operating websites and developing their own video sites that resemble YouTube, to be more effective in their fight against the West, according to a new article circulating on a variety of Islamist Internet forums. Improved media, author Abu Sa'd al-'Amili writes, will help increase recruitment of American and Western jihadis, and conduct 'continuous psychological media war' against the West..."
The Reality and Role of the Jihadist Media (January 2011?)
"We consider ourselves to be an inseparable part of the armies and hosts of Truth [sic] that are marching towards the enemy to revive offensive Jihad (Jihad al-Talab) and not simply practice defensive Jihad ... Among its most important programmes would be news reports and broadcasts of Mujahideen operations that reveal the massacre of the enemies of Allah on the different combat fronts ... and to serve as a connecting link between the masses of the Ummah and the Jihad groups that follow the orders of Allah..."

Sharia law's Threat to Free Speech (11 October 2010)

"Yes, it's true; a fringe minister with just
fifty followers in America wanted to burn a Koran. But he didn't.
Meanwhile another nut wants to kill all Jews, wipe Israel off the map,
destroy the United States, eliminate all Christians, indoctrinate
children into being suicide bombers, and carry out a revolutionary war
of terrorism for decades no matter how many die and how much destruction
occurs. Oh, and by the way, he and his colleagues have several hundred
thousand followers and are ruling what amounts to an independent state
bordering on the Mediterranean..."
Defamation of Religion: Is the OIC Banning Thought? (23 August 2010)
"Just back from a conference in Jakarta for journalists who write about religion. You might think we’d be a shy, aetiolated species living at remote altitude, unequal to the bawdy climate of the newsroom. ... What did we all have in common? One issue: challenging the abuse of power. It’s what journalists are for. But the OIC has a different expression for it: defamation of religion. These ‘religion journalists’ are already pitting their very existence against what is an insidious and deadly new Inquisition...

Islam is Incompatible With Diversity (8 March 2010)
"Before the rise of Islam, the Middle East had a wide range of religions and cultures. ... Today however the Middle East has one dominant religion and one nationality. ... with all others either exterminated or subjugated as second class citizens. ... The worldwide spread of Islam has been aided and enabled by the First World's love of multiculturalism and diversity. But as history shows, there is no surer way to destroy cultural and religious diversity, than by introducing Islam in to the mix. The idea that Islam can be an ingredient in a multicultural society is as foolish as the idea that adding a tank full of piranhas to an aquarium will result in species diversity. Because Islam does not participate in the ecology of a multicultural society, it is a predator consuming and destroying cultures and beliefs... and leaving only corpses and frightened victims in its wake..."

How to Reform Islam (6 December 2009)
"There is no discussing Islam without discussing the Moderate Muslim.

We Will Dominate You
"[W]hen we speak about Islam in the west, we try to use our own language and terminology. We speak about Islam in terms of democracy and fundamentalism, in terms of parliamentarism and all kinds of terms, which we take from our own dictionary. One of my professors and one of the greatest orient lists in the world says that doing this is like a cricket reporter describing a cricket game in baseball terms. We cannot use for one culture or civilization the language of another. For Islam, you've got to use the language of Islam..."
Why Muslim Military Shootings Are Inevitable (30 April 2011)
"The murder of nine Americans by an Afghan veteran air force pilot comes in the same week that Palestinian Authority police opened fire on Jewish religious worshipers headed to Joseph's Tomb. Events like this don't happen that often, but they happen often enough to remind us that how many of the men wearing police or military uniforms are straining at the leashes to kill us. When that leash snaps and they see an opportunity, the bullets begin to fly..."

The Muslim Terrorist as Eternal Victim (12 January 2011)
"[T]he Muslim world's definition of victim [is] someone who tries, but fails to kill you. Guantanamo Bay has a cargo load of 'victims' whose victimization consists of being captured by the American soldiers whom they failed to kill. ... Muslim terrorists are victims lashing out at the evil infidel oppressors who won't let them take over their country..."

Islamic Terrorism is an Inside Job (4 January 2011)
"Muslim terrorists are not a small bunch of loonies with a plan that can't possibly succeed, though the opponents of the War on Terror love to characterize them that way. They're a loosely affiliated global coalition of Muslim leaders, warlords, preachers, politicians, generals and tribes who are fighting to set up a global theocracy ... Within the Muslim world, terrorism is not a fringe event, but an inside job. Muslim terrorists are the 'privateers' of their culture..."
When Muslims Kill Christians (4 January 2011)

Murdering While Muslim (5 December 2010)
"Recently a nice Muslim fellow from Chicago by the name of Mohammad Alkaramla was convicted of sending bomb threats to a Jewish High School. Like most serial killers, his neighbors described him as peaceful and friendly. Just the sort of chap you want to invite to a barbecue or a bombing. His defense was that he wasn't threatening to kill Jewish students because he was the follower of a bigoted religion, but because he was upset over his ex-wife leaving to return home to Jordan..."

The Myth That Not All Muslims Are Terrorists (28 September 2010)
"Whenever I write an article about Muslims, there inevitably appears a comment from a reader throwing in the non sequitur 'There are 1.5 billion Muslims in the world, if they were all evil, bloodthirsty terrorists, there would be no one left on earth.' That statement is absolutely true. However, no group has to be 100% composed of members who are evil and bloodthirsty for that group to be dangerous. For example, the Nazi party..."

What Drives Islam to be the Religion of War (14 April 2010)
"Why is Islam constantly a source of war, violence and discord? The problem simply enough is theological, because to its followers the validity of Islam is directly connected to its physical supremacy. As followers of the purported "final revelation" to mankind, Muslims not only have the obligation to conquer and subjugate the rest of the world, their religion is only meaningful to the extent that they can carry on the work begun by Mohammed. Since Islam derives meaning primarily from physical supremacy, war becomes an act of faith. To believe in Islam, is to have faith that it must and will conquer and subjugate the entire world. And to be a true Muslim, one must feel called to aid in that global conquest, whether it is by providing money and resources to the Jihadists or to be a Jihadist yourself. Because Islam is expressed in physical supremacy, violence against non-Muslims become the essence of religion..."
Muslim Gangs Imposing Sharia law in British Prisons (18 March 2010)

Marxism and Islamism (7 May 2007)
"There have been a number of names given to radical Islam. Terms such as the Islamists, or Jihadists, or militant Muslims, are often used. Another term often used is Islamofascism. It is a fitting term, in many respects. All-embracing Islam can be every bit as totalitarian and dictatorial as fascism was. It might also be possible to speak of radical Islam as Islamomarxism, to coin a term. That is, there appear to be a number of parallels between Marxist thought and radical Islam..."
The Religion of Peace? What, Exactly, is 'Moderate Islam'? (10 January 2007)
"On 7 January 2007, I asked the Lexis-Nexis database to give me all appearances, just in the major Western newspapers it archives, of the word 'Islam' within 10 words of the phrase 'religion of peace', and it returned 738 results. By contrast, when I asked for all appearances in the same database of the word 'Islam' within 10 words of 'religion of war' I got only 66 results. This means that Westerners hear in the mainstream mass media that Islam is a 'religion of peace' more than 11 times more more often than they hear the opposite argument..."

The Myth of Moderate Islam (30 July 2005)
"Shehzad Tanweer ... whose bomb at Aldgate station killed seven people, was hailed by the crowd [at his funeral] as 'a hero of Islam'. ... Since 7/7 many [in Britain] have made statements to attempt to explain what seems to them a contradiction in terms. Since the violence cannot be denied, their only course is to argue that the connection with Islam is invalid. ... But surely we should give enough respect to those who voluntarily lay down their lives to accept what they themselves say about their motives. If they say they do it in the name of Islam, we must believe them. Is it not the height of illiberalism and arrogance to deny them the right to define themselves?..."

The Islamic Tsunami (15 December 2010)
"Is an Islamic tidal wave coming? 'There is a plan to take over Western civilization,' warns David Rubin, 'and we need to recognize it for what it is.' Mr. Rubin is a native New Yorker who served as mayor of the Israeli town of Shiloh. ... According to Mr. Rubin, the first wave of the tsunami is Islamic terrorism, which he says is 'a strategy intended to intimidate people so they won't speak out when the second wave hits.' ... The second and more threatening wave is the creeping takeover of Western political and social institutions, something Mr. Rubin calls the 'silent tsunami.' The spearhead of this movement is 'collusion between Islamic ideologues and the far left to promote the idea of moral relativism,' he said, 'that all values and ideologies are equal. But they are not. Americans have never believed this.'..."
Creeping Sharia Slides Over Britain (11 November 2010)

Tower Hamlets Extremist Vote Poses Ed Miliband's First Big Election Test (17 October 2010)
"Lutfur Rahman was sacked by the Labour Party last month as its candidate for mayor of Tower Hamlets amid deep concerns about his links with a Muslim supremacist group, the Islamic Forum of Europe (IFE), and a number of powerful local businessmen.

Is Newt Gingrich Wrong to Talk About Sharia? (24 August 2010)
"In a recent article appearing in Tablet, Lee Smith takes former House speaker Newt Gingrich to task for the latter's focus on Sharia (i.e., Islamic law). The thrust of Smith's argument is that sharia is a 'hopelessly abstract concept' and 'a highly idealized version of reality that has little basis in fact'; that sharia is 'a catchall phrase for legal principles that have rarely, if ever, existed in actual Muslim societies'; and that 'the notion that something called 'sharia' was widely imposed throughout the lands of Islam is an Orientalist fantasy.' My first observation is - even if all these charges were perfectly true - so? It hardly matters what sharia really is; all that matters is what today's Muslims believe it is. And a great many believe sharia is tangible and codified, and that it can, and should, be implemented in society. More to the point, telling the apostate or adulteress - who are regularly executed 'according to sharia' - that they are really being murdered by 'principles that have rarely, if ever, existed in actual Muslim societies', is hardly reassuring..."
The Truth About Obama's Muslim 'Faith' (23 August 2010)
"Now that Barack Obama has decided to be for the Ground Zero mosque before being implicitly against it (perhaps), discussion about his faith has once again reached a fever pitch. To many, his stance proves he's a Muslim, with a recent poll showing that almost 20 percent of Americans hold that opinion; to others, it just reflects a desire to be faithful to the Constitution (now, that would be change). The truth, however, is a bit more nuanced..."
It's Not About Freedom of Religion (12 August 2010)
"The controversy over the decision to permit the construction of a $100-million, 13-story Islamic mosque and community center within 600 feet of Ground Zero is a triumph of political correctness and posturing over respect for the feelings of murder victims and common sense..."
Coming to Grips With Sharia (10 August 2010)
"Suddenly, it seems, everyone is talking about Sharia. ... Unfortunately, too many [in the West] still remain unaware of the magnitude of the danger we face from Shariah.

He is also the author of a book called What’s Right with Islam Is What’s Right with America. But the book hasn’t always been called that. It was called quite something else for non-English-speaking audiences..."
In England, Girls Vulnerable to Islamic Law (07 July 2009)
"In March  a severely autistic man with the mental age of three married a woman in Bangladesh, via the telephone. Three of Britain's most senior judges intervened, ruling the marriage could not be legal under English law, as the man was unable to give his consent. ...

When is Islam Oppressed? (20 November 2005)
"Below, I have listed a few innocuous activities, manners, social customs, traditions and the daily way of life, which the kafirs blithely take for granted but which are extremely un-Islamic. According to Islamic morals, customs and laws, these offensive activities/practices might be construed as oppressive to Islam and, therefore, they are legitimate targets for eradication, or they must be replaced by Islamic practices or Islamic purification. ... Islamists ... will fight tooth-and-nail, legally or politically, covertly or overtly to remove such un-Islamic practices from the infidel lands which they have occupied ... lobby[ing] ... Kafir politicians to enact Islamic laws as are placement for those infidel customs, traditions and values. In their language, this process of Islamisation by stealth is called 'elimination of vices and promotion of virtues' - a secret method of imposing Islamic imperialism..."
The Danger Within: Militant Islam in America (November 2001)
"In the aftermath of the violence on September 11, American politicians from George W. Bush on down have tripped over themselves to affirm that the vast majority of Muslims living in the United States are just ordinary people. ... The Muslim population in this country is not like any other group, for it includes within it a substantial body of people ... who share with the suicide hijackers a hatred of the United States and the desire, ultimately, to transform it into a nation living under the strictures of militant Islam..."

"For various reasons, some quite innocent, many Western universities are keen to establish Islamic Studies programs on their campuses. And for various other reasons, some quite pernicious, Islamist organizations are keen to see Islamic Studies programs established at Western universities. To this end, allegedly to foster "understanding" of Islam, the latter are eager to establish Islamic Studies programs with boodle of such heft and shininess that salivating committees tasked with the decision of whether to accept or refuse the gift throw caution to the winds. But closer inspection of certain controversial donor groups might suggest that their real agenda is twofold: Islamist colonization of the institution, and image-laundering..."

"The Hijra was not a sudden desperate attempt by Muhammad and his followers to flee Mecca for a better life in Medina. In fact it was a methodically planned event whereby Muhammad used his shrewd political manoeuvring and leadership skills to transform every development into an advantage without losing his focus on the final goal. In the process he unified the pagan Arabs as Muslims and placed the Jewish and Christian Arabs in a subservient condition. ... More importantly, Muhammad developed a ‘model’ to be emulated by generations to come ... it provides the mechanisms and processes to be followed by dedicated and pious Muslims to transform the world into the abode of Islam..."
Islam: Cult of Apartheid in the West
(19 March 2008)
Should Muslims Integrate Into the West? (Fall/Autumn 2007)
"Muslim jurists since the ninth century have considered Muslim residence in non-Muslim societies to be dangerous. Not only might residence abroad weaken faith and practice, they argued, but migration to non-Muslim areas might also strengthen non-Muslims in their wars against Islam. However, the pronouncement was not absolute. Some scholars legitimized living among the infidels so long as Muslims living outside Islamic lands had no alternative, were helpful to the Muslim cause, and were able to practice their religion..."
Taqiyya: "A less [well] known element of Sharia is 'Permissible Lying', specifically authorised for use with unbelievers.

Tariq Ramadan: Respect (27 September 2012)
"Tariq Ramadan, a Muslim of Egyptian descent, holds a recently created Qatari-funded chair at Oxford. His public speaking, with a catchy Maurice Chevalieresque accent, is appealing in style, but nonetheless bluff-filled and vacuous. One of his techniques is to invoke admirable and attractive concepts in the abstract, and float them before his audience, like beautiful imagined balloons, to gasps of awe and admiration. Here are some of the abstracts that Ramadan has called upon..."
Razzia or Ghazwa: "Mohammed told his followers that the earth and everything on it belonged to Allah. Since everybody but Mohammedans were infidels or kuffars (non-believers), Allah has awarded their lands, property, women and children to the true believers"

Modern Muslim Criminality Continues the Tradition of Razzia or Ghazwa (26 January 2010)
"Mohammed told his followers that the earth and everything on it belonged to Allah. Since everybody but Mohammedans were infidels or kuffars (non-believers), Allah has awarded their lands, property, women and children to the true believers. This provided the 'theological' justification for divinely approved criminality of every kind. Mohammed led the way by raiding caravans and raping captured women. He soon attracted an eager band of followers wanting to follow his example. This tradition of Allah giving the Mohammedans permission [to] take whatever they like from the infidels continues to the present day..."
Muslim Pedophile Gangs Prey on Non-Muslim Children (26 January 2010)
"Of course you find pedophiles and rapists in all communities, but these are nearly always loners operating in secret, because pedophiles are despised and hated by normal people. However Islam is different. ... pedophile attacks on 'kuffar' (non-Muslim) children are seen as a legitimate form of jihad, inflicting humiliation, degradation and demoralisation on the children and their parents, as required by the Koran. The Islamic invasion of the West is one huge razzia (raid of rape and pillage) and Western children are war booty..."

"If our extreme left maintained a kill-or-capture list for the morning after the revolution (before they started arresting and executing each other), the 30 subjects interviewed in Showdown with Evil would fill out the top of its roster. In the left's view, the conservative and stubbornly independent voices captured in this book's rapid-fire chapters are guilty of crimes against inanity on two counts:.."
Steyn in Scandinavia (15 September 2010)
"There once was a little boy who had neither learned to lie to himself nor to others. Nor had he understood the importance of saying what everyone around him wanted to hear. When Hans Christian Andersen let the boy remark that the mighty emperor had no clothes, it had great consequences. Not for the boy but for the emperor and his subjects, who had let themselves and each other believe that the emperor's new clothes were the most beautiful they had ever seen. The little boy, on the other hand, became a hero and the grown-ups had to be ashamed of their lack of courage to articulate the self-evident. One is tempted to ask if we have learned anything from Hans Christian Andersen's old fairy tale. Are there people walking the streets and alleys today postulating things in clear contravention of reality?.."
The War of Worldviews (18 August 2010)
"During the Cold War the forces of secular totalitarianism sought global hegemony. The spirit and values of the Judeo-Christian West, along with military muscle, were needed to withstand this ferocious opponent, ... Today the free West faces a similar totalist and anti-democratic threat, that of radical Islamism. Millions of Muslims are bent on destroying the West and subjugating the entire world under the iron fist of sharia law. This battle is also being fought on ideological, spiritual and military levels. In both these major conflicts we have had many gullible Westerners promoting the myth of moral equivalence. This was the gravely mistaken notion that somehow the two sides were really just as bad as each other, and the West really had no right or moral claim to resist its assailants..."
An Anatomy of Surrender (Spring 2008)
"The key question for Westerners is: Do we love our freedoms as much as [the cultural jihadists] hate them? many free people, alas, have become so accustomed to freedom, and to the comfortable position of not having to stand up for it, that they're incapable of defending it when it's imperiled - or even, in many cases, of recognising that it is imperiled..."

The Muslim Elephant in the Room of Tolerance (2 January 2011)
"Headlines in New York papers are blaring once again that Islamophobia is up. Up and rising. Statistics released by the state's Division of Criminal Justice Services reveal that Islamophobic bias attacks are up by a whopping 15 percent. 15 percent does sound like a lot. And by a lot, I mean that they've gone up from 8 incidents in 2008 to 11 in 2009. That's right, that whopping '15 percent' is actually an increase of 3 incidents. To put this into context, in 2008 there were 219 attacks targeting Jews. And in 2009, that number went up to 251. And here's some more context. That same report shows that Anti-Multi-Religious Groups attacks went up from 3 to 11 incidents in that same year. That's a much steeper spike which brings us to the same number as the so-called Islamophobic attacks. And yet you don't see the media trumpeting those numbers. But when there are more bias attacks by people who can't figure out which religion they hate more, than anti-Muslim attacks, it's safe to say that there is no Islamophobia crisis..."
Who Will Teach Tolerance to the Muslims? (12 December 2010)
"Every time a Muslim terrorist is caught trying to kill Americans in the name of Islam, the media and the politicians immediately go on full alert over the threat of an "Islamophobic backlash" against Muslims. Right away city mayors, district attorneys, law enforcement officials, sensitivity trainers, school board members, television executives and editorial writers go sliding down the TolerancePole(TM) on an urgent mission to head off the inevitable orgy of violence by ordinary Americans who are always presumed to be 5 minutes away from shouldering a battering ram and heading off to the nearest mosque-- by teaching tolerance toward Islam. That means embedding Islam even deeper into the school curriculum, adding a "positive depiction" of a Muslim to every TV show on the air, and arresting anyone who even looks funny at a Koran..."
The Feminist Politics of Islamic Misogyny (13 November 2010)
"Studying honor killings is not the same as sensationalizing them -- but Columbia University professor Lila Abu-Lughod disagrees.

The Liberal-Islamist Alliance (29 August 2010)

Are You An Islamophobe? (31 August 2009)
"The foul-cry of Islamophobia has become a decisive tool for the Islamists to silence critics or critical investigation of Islam. Islamophobia is racism they claim. Are you an Islamophobe? Take this text to be sure..."
Islamophobia? Really? (3 December 2005)
"Jihad Watch Board Vice President Hugh Fitzgerald has a few questions for those who would charge him with the spurious offence of 'Islamophobia': The word 'Islamophobia' must be held up for inspection and its users constantly asked precisely how they would define that word. They should be put on the defensive for waving about what is clearly meant to be a scare-word that will silence criticism. So let's ask them, which of the following criticisms of Islam is to be considered 'Islamophobia':..."

The Value of History (24 July 2007)
"[T]he study of history is not a strong suit for most people these days, let alone our politicians. So often we find ourselves doing the same stupid things our forbears did, with the same calamitous results. We see many parallels today between the world of the militant Islamists, and the Nazis. Yet we fail to connect the dots, and see the implications of all the hate-filled rhetoric pouring out of some Islamists’ mouths. The truth is, if someone says they hate you and want to annihilate you, then you had better take some notice. We did not do that earlier last century, and we paid a horrible price. The question is, is history repeating itself today? Will we suffer a similar fate, ignoring the threats so clearly being aimed at us, and instead take the path of appeasement and weakness?.."
Blair Praises Islam in CFR Journal (January 2007)
"Tony Blair has written an article entitled A Battle for Global Values in the January-February edition of the journal 'Foreign Affairs' which is published by the Council on Foreign Relations. ...

He then went on to make an astonishing statement about Islam:..."

The Danish Witch-Hunt Against the Truth-Tellers (11 January 2011)
"Over the past week or so, Britain’s media have finally been forced to confront the fact that Muslim pimping gangs in the UK have been abducting, drugging, raping and abusing mainly white girls, along with Hindus and Sikhs, and further ‘grooming’ them for sex in a clear display of hostility towards ‘unbelievers’. Hitherto this phenomenon was not only kept from the public by a paralysed media class which refuses to confront Islamic outrages, but it appears that the police have often dragged their feet in pursuing such gangs as a result of the same politically correct paralysis. ... In Denmark, however, a campaigner for freedom of speech is actually to go on trial later this month for daring to bring this kind of thing to light..."

'Islamization' of Paris a Warning to the West (1 September 2010)
"A hidden camera shows streets blocked by huge crowds of Muslim worshippers and enforced by a private security force. This is all illegal in France: the public worship, the blocked streets, and the private security. But the police have been ordered not to intervene. It shows that even though some in the French government want to get tough with Muslims and ban the burqa, other parts of the French government continue to give Islam a privileged status..."

Prosecuted for Stating Truths (7 February 2009)
"European governments today are forbidding their citizens from expressing fear of those Muslim scriptures which demand Sharia law, Islamic Jihad, or the killing of non-Muslims. Any criticism of the above is considered hate speech against a religious ideology. The protection of Islamic ideology has become more important than the safety and security of their own citizens..."
Dutch Socialist Leader in Fear of Muslim Party Members (19 March 2006)
"Wouter Bos, the leader of the Partij van de Arbeid (PvdA), the Dutch Labour Party, is worried about the high number of immigrants in the ranks of his own party. Bos won the Dutch municipal elections on 7 March by catering for the immigrants, who consequently tipped the balance in favour of the PvdA. Almost half the elected PvdA politicians in major Dutch cities where the PvdA is the largest party, such as Amsterdam and Rotterdam, are now Muslims..."

Boris: Judaeo-Christian Basis is 'False Doctrine' (2 December 2010)
"Are our public schoolboys quietly stitching us up over a game of tennis? ... Muslim bullying is making cowards of our elites, whose only response to what’s happening is to deny that it matters. Am I mistaken, or was it Muslims who bombed the Underground system? Or is it a crime to mention that now?.."
Britain Extends the White Flag of Surrender to Islamist Radicals (17 November 2010)
"'If we know anything,' former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, once observed 'we know that weakness is provocative.' Mired in political correctness, Britain's 'elites' apparently prefer to think of displays of weakness as 'outreach.' Britain's 'elites' seem not to notice Islamism, but prefer to believe that if those protesting against Islamism could be silenced, the problem of radical Islam would disappear. It was this mindset that saw parliament introducing a religious hate speech law, aimed at silencing criticism of Islam and Islamism, in the aftermath of the 7/7 bombings. Britain's establishment, in other words, has busied itself clearing a very large space in which the Islamists can operate..."
Denial is a River in Londonistan (14 December 2010)
"Some four-and-a-half years ago, a book of mine was published that caused something of a sensation. It was called Londonistan, and it was about the way in which — astoundingly — Britain had become the most important centre, outside the Islamic world itself, for the production and export of Islamic terrorism. Worse yet, I wrote, even after the 9/11 attacks and the 7/7 London Tube and bus bombings, the British political, legal and security establishments were still refusing to get to grips with the threat posed to Britain by militant Muslims who wanted to conquer it for Islam. For my pains, I was called ‘mad’ by the Guardian, ‘bonkers’, ‘alarmist’, ‘hysterical’ and, of course, ‘Islamophobic’..."
Weep for Britain: 1940 This is Not (27 July 2010)
"When David Cameron became Britain’s Prime Minister, I warned that he would turn out to be even worse than Labour on the related issues of Israel and the global threat from Islamism to Britain and the west. This was because Cameron had no knowledge of or interest in foreign affairs, and so was always likely merely to reflect the most politically expedient views he encountered – which, given the current poisonous attitude within the British establishment and intelligentsia, were likely to push him into appeasing Britain’s mortal enemies in the Islamic world and dumping on Israel, Britain’s strategic ally in that great struggle. But even I did not foresee just how cynical Cameron would turn out to be -- and how dangerous therefore to the British national interest..."

Britain Capitulates to Terror (11 February 2009)

Allah's England? (November 2006)
"On the eve of the fifth anniversary of 9/11, [Muhammed Abdul] Bari [secretary-general of the Muslim Council of Britain] told the Sunday Telegraph: 'Some police officers ... are demonizing Muslims, treating them as if they're all terrorists' ... In fact, far from demonizing Muslims, the police have gone to inordinate lengths to accommodate their sensitivities. Scotland Yard now consults self-appointed community leaders like Bari before mounting anti-terrorist operations in 'Muslim areas' - thereby risking the possibility that secret information might leak out and compromise public safety..."

Religious Hatred Bill is Being Used to Buy Muslim Votes (9 December 2004)
"Members of the Dutch parliament, notably the extraordinarily brave Somali Hirsi Ali, have been forced into hiding, only appearing in public ringed by bodyguards.
Ms Ali inspired the liberal film-maker Theo van Gogh into extending a traditionally earthy Dutch anti-clericalism to Islam; the result being that he was shot and stabbed, with a warning note to Ms Ali thoughtfully affixed to his corpse with a carving knife. I have yet to hear a single senior British politician condemn these outrages, let alone express solidarity with the persecuted Ms Ali..."

The Liberal Solution to Terror Has Failed (20 November 2010)
"The chief liberal critique of the War on Terror has been that George W. Bush wrongly treated 9/11 as an act of war, rather than a criminal act. Instead of passing the Patriot Act, invading Afghanistan, torturing terrorists and trying them under military tribunals, he should have just made a nice speech, and then turned the rest over to the FBI, holding civilian trials and moving on-- the way Bill Clinton did..."
Islam and Political Correctness (2 November 2010)

The World's Most Dangerous Broadcaster (17 February 2011)
"I have only just caught up with the BBC documentary on the Dutch politician Geert Wilders that was transmitted on Tuesday evening. Did I say documentary? Europe’s Most Dangerous Man was a vicious hatchet job that was a disgrace to journalism. ... There were several aspects of this programme that should have caused any responsible broadcaster to sling it straight into the trash. First and most fundamentally, it simply turned the people threatening the free world into victims and the politician who is trying to defend the free world against that threat into a fascist..."

Superiority Complex (19 September 2010)
"The people of most nations have a natural tendency to believe themselves superior because of their culture, religion and way of life.

Left Allows Europe to Fall to Muslims (2 February 2007)
"In a recent interview, Prof. Bernard Lewis, famed historian and leading expert on Islam, warned that 'Muslims seem to be about to take over Europe.' The irony is that this takeover - be it in 10 years or 30 - is not because Islam has more tanks or better missiles than the Europeans. It is because the minority Islamic populations already living within Europe are making demands to Islamize Europe and no one seems to be willing to say no..."

BBC Promotes Islam (No Date)
"BBC2 showed an hour-long film about the Hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca) ... The most dramatic scene was the stoning of Satan, ... With aggression and violence written all over their faces, it was ... a very frightening situation ... 15 people were killed in the process on the day of filming, a fact that was simply recorded with no comment or condemnation.

"Well, that didn't work out so well.

Bad Man Killed, Worse May Win (21 October 2011)
"Britain's astonishing naivety and credulity when it comes to the Arab and Muslim world have given way, with the killing of Col Gaddafy, to a tardy tremulousness as people wonder nervously: 'Now what?' Too late! Britain treated Gaddafy as a cartoon character -not just because of his caricature as a bizarre and unpredictable 'mad dog', but because British commentators and even politicians tend to depict armed conflict in cartoonish terms: 'bad man killed, so goodies win'. Alas, in the Arab and Muslim world it's very often 'bad man killed, even worse men win'..."
"The moment has come to admit that I loathe the Arab Spring and almost everything about it. It looks to me pretty much like a football crowd armed with AK-47s and bazookas, with the added ingredient of Islamic militancy. Why am I expected to like it?

On Egypt, the Left Are All Neo-Cons Now (15 February 2011)
"The future of Egypt following the departure of President Hosni Mubarak remains opaque. No-one can currently predict whether it will end up as a democracy with free elections, a military dictatorship, or an Islamic theocratic tyranny. But the Western Left has known one thing for certain from the very start of the protests: that the tyrannical dictator Mubarak had to go, that the protestors in Tahrir Square were all on the side of freedom and that the convulsions presaged a joyous new dawn of democracy and human rights..."

The History Lesson So Desperately Needed by Israel's Detractors (8 February 2011)
"Unable to defeat Israel on the battlefield or intimidate her by decades of terror her Muslim tormentors have anxiously turned to a different strategy. In defiance of the mountains of historical and archeological facts, let alone the biblical evidence, they have embarked on a strenuous effort to turn history upside down and wage a campaign to prove that Israel and the Jews have no legal right to the Land of Israel and that it should always have been a land over which Islamic supremacists hold dominion. Their insatiable appetite for historical revision, bolstered by an American president who conveniently suffers from historical amnesia, has led them into the realm of lawfare, where if you torture the facts long enough eventually the facts will tell you anything you wish to hear..."
Quote of the Week (5 February 2011)
"If the media reported on the overwhelming Jew hatred in the Arab world generally and in Egypt specifically, it would ruin the narrative of the Arab conflict with Israel. That narrative explains the roots of the conflict as frustrated Arab-Palestinian nationalism. It steadfastly denies any more deeply seated antipathy of Jews that is projected onto the Jewish state. The fact that the one Jewish state stands alone against 23 Arab states and 57 Muslim states whose populations are united in their hatred of Jews necessarily requires a revision of the narrative. And so their hatred is ignored..."
The Slow-Motion Exodus of European Jews (07 January 2011)

Delegitimizing the Jewish State (Winter 2011 [received 30 December 2010])
"In a move that caught the Israeli government and the Jewish world by complete surprise, on October 21, 2010, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) declared the Tomb of the Hebrew Patriarchs in Hebron and Rachel's Tomb in Bethlehem 'an integral part of the occupied Palestinian territories,' admonishing the Israeli decision to add these biblical shrines to the list of Jewish historical and archaeological sites as 'a violation of international law.'..."
Muslims Project Islam's Worst Traits onto Israel and the Jews (17 November 2010)
"Sometime back, I noted that Muslims have been projecting the worst aspects of Islam(ism) onto the Copts, Egypt's Christian minority. This raised more questions: Is Islamist projection onto the Copts a unique phenomenon? Do Muslims project onto other non-Muslims, too? Is there a trend? To answer this question, it seemed logical to begin with how Islamists approach their archenemy: Israel and the Jews. Thinking this may be difficult to prove — it is one thing to hate your enemy, another to project unconsciously your worst traits onto him — I expected this might require some research. I went to MEMRI and, lo and behold, came across three back-to-back examples of projection against Israel and the Jews. Consider the following excerpts, especially the italicized portions:.."

The Mufti of Jerusalem: Architect of the Holocaust (07 February 2010)

There are numerous bits of evidence, ... that point to a possible location where Hajj Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, lived during World War II. And in the course of investigating this, I have found that the Mufti was involved in and may even have created the Final Solution for European Jews - and yet his central participation in the Holocaust has been covered up and forgotten..."
