Islam versus Europe 29 November 2012
It was about time that those who live from free speech - no, I am not talking about journalists... - start fighting for it. Artists gathered in London earlier this month to express their view on freedom on the Passion for Freedom exhibition, and this time Islam gets mentioned:

Two Palestinian documents recently made public deserve attention: the Palestinian request for non-member state status at the United Nations General Assembly, 1 and the speech made by President Abu Mazen on November 11, 2012 at the ceremony marking the death of Yassir Arafat eight years ago. 2
The request submitted to the UN that apparently will be debated on November 29, 2012 is clearly an attempt by the Palestinians to bolster their negotiating position by garnering international support. Rather than having to negotiate the question of statehood with Israel, the Palestinians hope to acquire this status, supported widely by the international community, without the need to negotiate with Israel or concede anything to Israel.

"Destroying Western civilisation from within” is one of the "General Strategic Goals” of the Muslim Brotherhood, the organisation (previously banned) behind Egypt’s President Morsi. These goals are stated in a secret internal document of 1991 captured in a police raid after 9/11, and known as "The Project”. See it on the Internet (1).
"Using deception to mask intended goals” is another of the aims. Islam specifically authorises deception of non-Muslims. The Manual of Islamic Law has a section (r8.2) headed "Permissible Lying”. Nonie Darwish, a former Muslim from Egypt, has written on Sharia law and explains that deception is not only permitted, but in some circumstances is obligatory. This is the origin of all those familiar assurances about peace, coexistence, respect, tolerance and so on, now tired, well-worn, and increasingly transparent.

In reality Hamas has not changed or relinquished its dream of replacing Israel with an Islamist state that is funded and armed by Iran. Unless Hamas changes its charter, the talk about changes in its strategy only serves to spread the movement's campaign of deception.
Is Hamas really on its way to moderation and pragmatism, as some Western political analysts and diplomats have come to believe?
What’s been happening in Egypt this week is as important as the revolution that overthrew the old regime almost two years ago.

Saudi Arabia has officially opened the doors of a controversial new "interreligious and intercultural dialogue center" in the Austrian capital, Vienna.

More than 650 high-profile guests from around the world attended the event, including UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon and the foreign ministers of the center's three founding states, Austria, Spain and Saudi Arabia.
