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.

Post Qaddafi: Insurgency and Jihad versus Democracy

Global Politician 29 August 2011
By Walid Phares, Ph.D.

By seizing most of Tripoli and fighting what's left of the pockets of resistance of Qaddafi forces, Libyan rebels have now almost dislodged the old regime and are expected to begin building their own government.

Each purports to show that the anti-Sharia movement in America is a sinister cabal of well-funded, dishonest hacks stirring up hate against innocent Muslims in order to profit from it. Each has been highly distorted and markedly unfair, twisting the facts and cooking the data in order not to enlighten but to manipulate, not to educate but to propagandize.

Jerusalem: Capital of ‘Palestine’?

FrontPage Magazine 29 August 2011
By David Meir-Levi

Throughout all of history, Jerusalem has been the capital of only one nation: Israel.  From the time of Kings David and Solomon, late 11th – 10th centuries BCE, to the destruction of> Jerusalem by the Romans in 70 CE, almost 1,100 years, Jerusalem was the capital of the Jewish nation.

From the onset of Islamic rule in 638 CE to its end 1917, except for Crusader rule from 1099 to 1187, Jerusalem was never the capital of any Muslim state, nor even a provincial capital, until late Ottoman times (19th c. CE) when it became a special provincial religious site (vilayet) separate from its larger provincial area [sanjak].
