WASHINGTON -- Critics say last year's Arab Spring should be called instead the "Arab Nightmare." Egypt is just one example. The long-time U.S. ally now appears to be playing a hostile game of chicken, with American pro-democracy workers caught in the middle.
WASHINGTON -- A new study of homegrown terrorism involving Muslim Americans suggests that the alarm bells set off by Republicans in Congress over sleeper cells of Islamic extremists may be much too loud.

Silvio Berlusconi's finest 1/2 hour came shortly after 9/11 when he became the first and only Western leader to point out the duh-obvious distinctions between Western civilization and Islam -- essentially, one culture enshrines liberty, one does not -- and made the rather modest call for us to be aware of the distinction.

For years, I've documented Great Britain's descent into PC-addled, post-Christian, Islamist madness. In 2010, I received a first-hand taste of it during a week-long stay in London in which I interviewed Anjem Choudary and other notorious Islamists, some Al Qaeda-linked (see the video I've embedded below), who are walking the streets of the British capital as free men--and in many cases, collecting generous welfare benefits from the state.
