Friday I appeared on the Michael Coren Show on Sun TV to discuss Mona Eltahawy's recent criticism of the treatment of women in Islamic culture, and the circle-the-wagons response from Islamic supremacists Leila Ahmed and Dalia Mogahed.

On Sunday, the story that was front and center on the main page of the website of Le Monde – France’s purported newspaper of record – was a nearly perfect example of how to go about attacking critics of Islam. Headlined "Why Islamophobia is Gaining Ground,” the article, written by Frédéric Joignot, begins by noting that Marine Le Pen, the daughter and successor of the fascist anti-Semite Jean-Marie Le Pen, "came first or second in 116 constituencies out of 577, exceeding 25% in 59 of them.”
Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam (NOI), has criticized President Barack Obama for endorsing gay marriage. The 79-year-old Farrakhan spoke at the San Diego Convention Center on Sunday.

A new dark age is descending across much of the Middle East as the forces of Sharia Islam, enabled by official U.S. government policy, again demand strict enforcement of Islamic law.

One of the experts on contemporary Islamophobia subpoenaed in the trial against Anders Behring Breivik is the Norwegian writer Oyvind Strommen. Prior to this case he was virtually unknown, but he has enjoyed a tremendous career boost thanks to Breivik’s evil acts, and is now hailed as a "leading expert” on the Counterjihad, a claim which triggers roars of laughter from those who actually know this movement. A lucky opportunist, Strommen sells his books by labeling me a dangerous "Fascist.” He says very little about real problems caused by mass immigration to Western countries, but a great deal about how evil any opposition to mass immigration is.

Fjordman’s latest essay has been published at the British Freedom website. Some excerpts are below:
In the spring of 2012, the British Freedom Party officially began working together with the English Defence League (EDL) street protest movement. Two senior EDL leaders, Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carroll, joined the Executive Committee of British Freedom. The two organizations will cooperate, but nevertheless remain separate.
