Islamonausea, not Islamophobia

Jihad Watch 3 February 2012
By Nicolai Sennels

We should stop using Muslims' self-chosen word – "Islamophobia” – by which they paint themselves into a corner of being feared: it destroys communication

Instead of such a divisive term, we should insert a more approachable and factual word that preserves opportunities for bridge-building and learning: "Islamonausea.” This does not render communication impossible, but enables visitors to our Western cultures to notice aspects of their behavior that make us sick.

It's no wonder that Muslims use the word "Islamophobia” so often. Lacking convincing arguments, charm or constructive contributions to their surroundings, being feared is the only way to gain at least some kind of respect. The term Islamophobia, fear of Islam, points to what Muslims want, not to what non-Muslims feel. Who is afraid of Islam, anyway?

Ibn Warraq's insightful and inspiring defense of Western civilization

Jihad Watch 3 February 2012
By Robert Spencer

In my Crisis column this week I review Ibn Warraq's extraordinary new book, Why the West Is Best:

Why the West is Best: A Muslim Apostate’s Defense of Liberal Democracy.
By Ibn Warraq, Encounter Books, 286 pages, $19.

One principal reason why the Islamic jihad is advancing with such confidence around the world today is because its chief competitor, the West, has lost its nerve. The iron and unquestionable dogma of multiculturalism has eaten away at its self-confidence and left only a relativism that walks to the brink of excusing genocide.

Video: How to deal with the appeasers of genocide

Mellanie Phillips 3 February 2012

This YouTube video of the British writer Douglas Murray at the Cambridge Union last March has suddenly gone viral. It's not surprising. It is a magnificent put-down of all those who dismiss the mortal threat posed by Iran's nuclear programme. Given the lethal and amoral idiocy of those who are currently indifferent to the genocidal threat posed by Iran to the State of Israel in particular, this is a must-see.

The battle over Boykin at West Point

By Diana West

Even after all these years, journalist-socialite Sally Quinn still embodies a Washington way of thinking – a heart-of-Georgetown, A-list set of salon-tested assumptions "everyone” knows that provides attitudes for any occasion.

Take the surreal state of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. One day, William G. "Jerry” Boykin, a highly decorated retired Army general and ordained minister, and a founding member and leader of Delta Force, was scheduled to speak at a West Point prayer breakfast.
