The sad, sad lack of solidarity among Christians

Jihad Watch 18 July 2011
By Nicolai Sennels

A recent study shows that 105,000 Christians are killed every year because of their faith. In other words, every five minutes a Christian is killed because he or she is Christian. Those of us who do not just stick to politically castrated (non-PC for "politically correct") newspapers and news channels are fully aware of the bloody oppression of Christians in Muslim countries. Christians are also subject to religiously motivated threats in their own countries. One among countless examples is Holland, where Moroccans shout "One dog less!" at Christian funerals.

 

Post-Surge Iraq: 2010 'Worst Year' for Christian Minority

American Thinker 18 July 2011
By Andrew G. Bostom

General David Petraeus continues to receive plaudits for the "successful surge" in Iraq -- based upon his credo, "What have you done to win Iraqi hearts and minds today?" -- as he transitions to becoming the new head of the Central Intelligence Agency.

Asia Times, in this report, provides more evidence of how ephemeral, if not meaningless, the so-called "success" of that surge, contingent on winning Iraqi Muslim "hearts and minds," actually was.

Stadtkewitz: "We are on the right path!”

Translation: Anders Denken

In Berlin, the FREEDOM "political festival” took place. During the event, the members present showed great elation over the acquittal of their Dutch ally Geert Wilders. "There couldn’t have been a better occasion for celebration,” so the consensus was. With this event, the party sounded the starting bell for their first election campaign. National party head René Stadtkewitz seemed especially optimistic: "We are on the right path.”

 

European Court says Swiss minaret ban did not violate human rights

National Secular Society 18 July 2011

The European Court of Human Rights has rejected two cases brought by Muslims against Switzerland's constitutional ban on building minarets.

A seven-judge panel at the Strasbourg-based court said on July 8 that it would not consider the cases as the plaintiffs failed to show how the ban harmed their human rights and they therefore "cannot claim to be ‘victims' of a violation" of the European Convention on Human Rights, which the court enforces.

One of the cases was brought by a former spokesman for the mosque of Geneva and the other by a number of Swiss Muslim associations. It is now widely expected that the court will throw out three other similar cases on the minaret ban that are still pending.

 

A kafir is a kafir

Jihad Watch 18 July 2011
By Joseph Zaalishvili

It is very interesting to read and listen to the critics who say "why worry about Islam?" and "jihadism is not a threat."

Well, Muslims are building mosques in non-Muslim countries, and they want Sharia courts as well, and Iran is building nuclear reactors and bombs. What's the problem?

These "critics" say that non-Muslim countries should simply try to start negotiations with Iran. They think that the Jihad is just a word. They think that Sharia is just some set of laws. And they think that Islamization is not a threat to them.

 

How to Stop Islam's Exploitation of Our Foolish Fellow Countrymen

Citizen Warrior 18 July 2011

I WAS LISTENING to Civilization and Its Enemies last night. I read the book years ago and thought it was so good, I bought the unabridged audio version, which I've listened to four times now. One of the insights from the book that has finally overridden the last residue of my youthful idealism is this: It is a fact of life — a hard, unchangeable fact, like Newton's law of universal gravitation — that if someone is willing to risk their lives to take something of yours, you will have to be willing to risk your life to keep it, or you will probably lose it.
