Dutch Parliamentarian Geert Wilders gave a speech last evening in Nashville at the Cornerstone Church, reproduced, below.
James Freeman Clarke (1810-1888), was an American theologian, philosopher, author, and abolitionist. He also became one of the first American scholars to study and write about Eastern religions, including, notably, Islam. Freeman Clarke’s 1883 "Ten Great Religions,” includes this remarkably compendious assessment of Islam—a most fitting introduction to Wilders speech:

The Center for Palestinian Studies (CPS) at Columbia University hosted an event on May 2, 2011 entitled "Gaza: Israel’s War and the Goldstone Report.” The panel of rabid anti-Israel academics included Norman Finkelstein, author of "This Time We Went Too Far: Truth and Consequences of the Gaza Invasion;” Rashid Khalidi, author of "The Iron Cage” and former professor of political science at DePaul University who was denied tenure and resigned; Edward Said, professor of Arab studies at Columbia and co-director of CPS; and Peter Weiss, vice president of the Center for Constitutional Rights.

To whom it may concern,
I’m writing with regard to the document you signed, a document issued to you by members of the turban campaign, something that slanders not just myself but also the English Defence League.
When I noticed the lies in this joint statement I thought to myself, "just ignore it”. I thought that anybody who is deluded enough to believe this nonsense is not worth wasting time on. Time trying help them realise the truth seemed just a waste of effort. Some people are just blind to truth anyway so why even bother? But when I was speaking to my grandmother the other day about this situation, she made me understand that this could be a negative way to proceed. So upon reflection, I would like to take this opportunity to apologise for my arrogance. This is me reaching out to all those people who have been hoodwinked into believing slander from the ideological opponents of the EDL.

As I predicted, CUNY has almost immediately reversed itself. Amidst an internet and email uprising by its faculty and by leading members of the left intelligentsia, the CUNY board of trustees will meet Monday to reconsider its decision to deny an honorary doctorate to playwright Tony Kushner.
Benno C. Schmidt Jr., chairman of the CUNY board since 2003, said in a statement that he believed the board had "made a mistake of principle, and not merely of policy,” in failing to approve the degree from the John Jay College of Criminal Justice at its meeting on Monday. Mr. Schmidt scheduled a meeting for this coming Monday of the board’s seven-member executive committee, which has the power to reconsider any board decision that is detrimental to the university.
Political Islam 6 May 2011
By Bill Warner
The most difficult thing to understand about Islam is discerning the mixed message we keep hearing. The government, media and professors talk about a wonderful Islam that is a blessing to humanity and America, in particular. This Islam is so wonderful that anyone who resists it is a bigot, a hater, an Islamophobe. But there is another Islam that lurks in the background—violence, rape, lies, deception, and ever increasing Muslim immigration.

I learned of the horrific "honor" murder of a 20-year-old Muslim young woman in Michigan by her pious Muslim stepfather, within a short time after receiving news of the profoundly disturbing turn of events in the Lars Hedegaard show trial (background here, here, and here).

Freedom of speech and women’s rights just took a major hit in Denmark earlier today when the public prosecutor found Lars Hedegaard, the President of the Danish (and International) Free Press Society, guilty of "hate speech” under section 266b of the Danish penal code.
Hedegaard’s crime was to note "the great number of family rapes in areas dominated by Muslim culture in Denmark.”
The prosecutor’s crime is far greater. Now, courtesy of this prosecution, it is officially "racist” to tell the truth about sexual violence against women in Denmark, at least when that violence is perpetrated by Muslim fathers, uncles, or cousins.
The Deafening Silence regarding Islamic Slavery. In the state of South Kordofan, Sudan, are the Nuba Mountains. A tenuous cease fire exists and tensions are high as the armed militias roam the mountains and oil fields freely. This area saw some of the most brutal Darfur-style violence and the fear of the people is that they would again be plunged into war.

The President of the Free Press Society, Lars Hedegaard, was declared guilty of racist statements.
Lars Hedegaard was today found guilty of hate speech under Article 266b of the Danish penal code. The background is a good 35 minutes long interview to the site snaphanen.dk which Hedegaard gave in December 2009.
