The Tyrant is Dead, Long Live the Tyrant

Canada Free Press 25 October 2011
By Daniel Greenfield

The tyrant is dead, and the head of Libya’s Transitional National Council, Mustafa Abdul-Jalil,  (who was also Gaddafi’s former Justice Minister), has declared that Libya has been liberated.

What a glorious day it is when a country is liberated from its justice minister by its justice minister. If only Gaddafi had been quicker on the ball, he could have staged a revolution against himself and liberated the country from himself.

Sharia über Alles versus Western Justice

American Thinker 24 October 2011
By Andrew G. Bostom

How is it that intelligent people cannot see the lesson of history when sharia enters a non-Islamic society, step by step?

Stern's vitriol is directed specifically at SB 1028, a bill which was recently passed by the Tennessee General Assembly, and includes this straightforward language regarding sharia2:

Both of these insufferable arguments are symptoms of the moral decline of civilization.

 

The many faces of grand Jihad

RenewAmerica 24 October 2011
By Tabitha Korol

Fourteen centuries after Muhammad, Muslims still despise the West, and they are willing to die to kill those who think and believe differently.

Muslims believe that only Jihad can reestablish a true Muslim state to abolish injustice and bring people into their God's service — by eradicating other political systems by the sword — to preach, restore the Caliphate and destroy their enemies, infidels and Jews. Raised by devout, doting families, many are taught 7th century masculine virtues, trained to feel isolated from their host society, develop a group mentality, and though not predisposed to do harm individually, they can perform monstrous acts collectively.
