The French city of Tours recently woke to the sound of the muezzin, generated not by Muslims in this case, but the French nationalist group Vox Populi.

The International Civil Liberties Alliance (ICLA) will be represented at various points at the OSCE Human Dimension Implementation meeting that opens in Warsaw today. We are at a crucial juncture when fate of human rights as traditionally understood hangs in the balance.

The U.S. Public Relations industry is one which is very high profile, but is a tiny, close knit industry, with only perhaps 75 American PR firms having more than 50 employees (i.e. enough scope/influence to represent a foreign government or foreign interests).
Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide. A manual of Islamic law certified as a reliable guide to Sunni orthodoxy by Al-Azhar University, the most respected authority in Sunni Islam, says that "retaliation is obligatory against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right."
Rioting Muslims took to the streets of Athens on Sunday afternoon, in protest against the film that mocked Mohammed. Around 1,000 Muslims hurled bottles and other objects at police that were trying to prevent the rioters descending on the U.S. Embassy.
