Encounter Books has just released a remarkably compendious 4-minute video synopsis of Andrew McCarthy’s "The Grand Jihad”, re-issued in a paperbound edition, which features captivating—and humorous—animation.
Please also see a very insightful review of "The Grand Jihad” by Karen Lugo recently published at The American Thinker, and a review I had published when the original hardcover version of McCarthy’s indispensable book was produced.

To date, the New York Times has published at least ten articles (op-eds disguised as news, real op-eds, letters) about the film The Third Jihad, which first appeared in 2009. The NYT-dominated campaign led to coverage in the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, Fox News, and other mainstream media venues.

Back in May 27th 2006, the now-defunct movement ”Voice for Europe” held a demonstration in Klosterneuburg, Wien, Austria, standing for European values and against reckless expansion of the European Union. The demonstration was held at an inofficial meeting for the EU foreign ministers, originally meant to revive the Constitution Treaty recently killed off by referenda in France and Netherlands.

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?

Ayaan Hirsi Ali was born in Somalia, raised a Muslim and spent her childhood in Africa and Saudi Arabia. In 1992, she went to the Netherlands as a refugee to escape a forced marriage to a cousin she never met. She eventually became educated and an outspoken voice on the international stage against the horrors of radical Islam. She denounced Islam after the 9/11 attacks and became an atheist.
In the investigative report below, a German television program reveals that a prominent and respected imam has been padding his résumé a little bit. Well, more than a little bit, actually… Many thanks to Sheik Yermami for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

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.

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.
