The "Ground Zero” Mosque Will Never be Built–For Totally Non-Political Reasons

Pajamas Media 30 August 2011
By Barry Rubin

Readers of my column know that I have written repeatedly that the "Ground Zero” mosque would never be built for reasons having nothing to do with politics. The main financiers and the imam have gotten into one legal problem after another and Allstate Insurance Company is now launching a major lawsuit for fraud against one of them. As we approach the tenth anniversary of September 11, it’s clear that there isn’t going to be a mosque next to the World Trade Center attack site.

 

Hurricane Warnings

the Dry Bones Blog 30 August 2011


I love it when I can link two current news items together in one cartoon.

Especially when they would seem to be totally unconnected.

Which is why I was delighted when, while watching all the sober, intelligent, American East Coast hurricane warnings, this cartoon occurred to me.

The Marxist Roots of Feminism

FrontPage Magazine 30 August 2011
By Spyridon Mitsotakis

Liberals’ treatment of Michelle Bachmann is rife with all the wonderful double standards we have come to expect from the Left. With few exceptions, feminists have been silent—which is nothing new for them.

As David Horowitz recalled in the early 1980s: "I once asked Leslie Harris, the head of the ACLU task force on women, how feminists could continue their support of a man [Ted Kennedy] who was such a prominent

Obama's Pretend Counterterrorism Policy

Middle East Forum 30 August 2011
By Daniel Pipes

With trumpets and drum rolls, the White House in early August released a policy paper on methods to prevent terrorism, said to have been two years in the making.

Signed personally by Barack Obama and with rhetoric vaunting "the strength of communities" and the need to "enhance our understanding of the threat posed by violent extremism," the document looks anodyne.

Ten years after 9/11: René Stadtkewitz in New York

DIE FREIHEIT 29 August 2011

René Stadtkewitz, top candidate of the civil rights party DIE FREIHEIT (FREEDOM), will be the first and only German politician to speak at Ground Zero in New York on the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Berlin, Stadtkewitz, a longtime member of the Berlin House of Representatives, announced today that he gladly accepted the invitation from the organization "Stop Islamization of America” (SIOA) and the well-known political activist Pamela Geller.

"The three most important terrorists of the 9/11 attacks had studied in Hamburg and were also radicalized there. Germany must be made aware of this,” said Stadtkewitz. "But a year after the publication of Thilo Sarrazin's book, Deutschland Schafft sich ab, (Germany is Eliminating Itself) nothing has changed here.

 

How Should We Treat the Muslims in Our Midst?

Citizen Warrior 29 August 2011

Living among us, we have many Muslims who are undoubtedly as innocent of terrorism, political subversion, and Islamic supremacism as we are. But we have a problem, don't we? These innocent fellow countrymen — and the terrorists, subversives, and supremacists — all call themselves "Muslims."

Many non-Muslims explain the situation to themselves that "there are extremists in every religion" and let it go at that. But those of us who have studied Islamic doctrine and Islamic history have discovered that "letting it go at that" would be a big mistake. And of course, those who simply look at the news can see that there must be something about Islam that produces more "extremists" than other religions.

 

Losing Malmo

National Review Online 29 August 2011
By Andrew C. McCarthy

Do you remember the jihadist terror campaign that ravaged Malmo, Sweden’s third largest city? Do you recall the bombings, the suicide-hijackings, and the random assassinations that finally coerced the city to surrender to Islamization?

No? Funny, I don’t remember them either. Yet there is no question that Malmo has surrendered. Large enclaves of the city, like similar enclaves throughout Western Europe, have earned the dread label "no-go zone.” They are unsafe for non-Muslims, particularly women who do not conform to Islamist conventions of dress and social interaction. They are especially perilous for police, firefighters, and emergency-medical technicians.

 

Levi’s exploits riots for jeans ad

European Son 29 August 2011
By A. Millar

"Your life is your life,” so the voiceover of Levi’s latest ad announces in a husky, somewhat frothy voice. We’re supposed to believe that we’re listening to someone wise; someone who’s lived life and contemplated its mysteries — beyond why some jeans make you look fat and others don’t, that is. Yet, these, the opening words of the company’s latest ad, are only the beginning of what turns out to be one long string of pret-a-porter-Zen inanities.

 

The Word 'Islam' Means 'Peace'? 

Answering Islam 29 August 2011
By Bassam Darwich

In Semitic languages many words are created by inserting different vowels between the three root consonants, e.g. "iSLaM" and "SaLaM" are two derivations from SLM. Does that mean they are related in meaning also?

In Romanic and Germanic languages it is not so much by vowel changes, but by adding prefix or suffix to the root word [i.e. before or after the root]. For example "love" can be seen as a ‘root word’, which then can be the base for several adjectives, like "loving" and "loveless", both of which come from the same root "love" but clearly they mean basically the opposite.

 

The Desperation-of-Deprivation Myth

National Review Online 29 August 2011
By Mark Steyn

Unlike many of my comrades in the punditry game, I don’t do a lot of TV. But I’m currently promoting my latest doom-mongering bestseller, so I’m spending more time than usual on the telly circuit. This week I was on the BBC’s current-affairs flagship Newsnight. My moment in the spotlight followed a report on the recent riots in English cities, in the course of which an undercover reporter interviewed various rioters from Manchester who’d had a grand old time setting their city ablaze and then expressed no remorse over it.
