The Many Appetites for Cruelty

Family Security Matters 5 April 2012
By Edward Cline

Daniel Greenfield, during an interview on Jamie Glasov’s radio show on March 28th, was discussing Hitler and Stalin when he noted that they had an "appetite for cruelty.” That got me thinking about the nature and purpose of cruelty.

 

The New Anti-Semitism

Hoover Institution 4 April 2012
By Victor Davis Hanson

While it is true that Israeli forces stayed put on neighboring lands after the 1967 war, subsequent governments eventually withdrew from the Sinai, southern Lebanon, and Gaza—areas from which attacks were and are still staged against it. The Economist’s choice of "appealing” is an odd modifying adjective of the noun "enemy,” particularly for Iran, which has both promised to wipe out Israel and is desperately attempting to find the nuclear means to reify that boast.

 

Video: Jihad in the West: Ongoing Threat Within

Family Security Matters 4 April 2012
By Diana West

On page 330 of the 2002 book Islam and Dhimmitude, the great historian Bat Ye'or writes:

It was in the early 1970s, with the outbreak of Arab Palestinian terrorism worldwide that dhimmitude erupted on European soil through violence and death deliberately inflicted on one category: the Jews, who were singled out as in the Nazi period by their religion.

Honor Killings Grow in the West: Islam's Gruesome Gallery

Atlas Shrugs 2 April 2012
By Pamela Geller

The horror of these young girls -- terror-stricken victims, who live in homemade concentration camps -- is given the imprimatur of the West in its complicit silence. The media goes to extraordinary lengths to whitewash these crimes and disconnect the motive for these murders. The West looks away as more and more girls fall victim to the sharia in the West.

Europe's Islamic Future Has Arrived

Gatestone Institute 27 March 2012
By Soeren Kern

In country after European country, the post-modern charade of the bliss of multiculturalism -- the idea that all cultures are equal and can coexist peacefully side-by-side in any given country, and that Muslim immigrants should be allowed to keep their cultural traditions rather than integrate into wider European society -- is unravelling.

Tale of 2 murderers

Ynetnews 27 March 2012
By Manfred Gerstenfeld

For those who want to understand contemporary European reality somewhat better, comparing the murders committed by Mohammed Merah in Toulouse with the ones by Norwegian Anders Breivik would be a good start. These killings and the responses to them have important elements in common, yet also differ on other major issues. Both murderers were driven by ideology and chose their targets within specific groups - Breivik aimed primarily at the Labor Party, while Merah chose his victims among soldiers and the Jewish community.

 

Misleading "Moderate" Muslims Help Advance Muslim World Domination

Right Side News 26 March 2012
By Eliana Benador

"In time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” George Orwell

In the world we live nowadays, there is a very pertinent question: What’s right and what’s wrong? Is there any room for ‘gray’ in between? Can anyone be a "moderate” extremist par opposition to an "extremist...?”

Europe's Muslim nightmare

Ynetnews 24 March 2012
By Guy Bechor

As long as we were dealing with Islamic terrorists arriving in Western Europe from the Middle East and not part of local society, it was possible to monitor them and thwart their terror intentions. They were foreigners. Yet what happens when the terrorists are French or European locals of Muslim descent who were born in Europe? To what extent can their actions be monitored and their terror activities curbed? It’s much more difficult, and this is the European nightmare, which keeps growing, as illustrated by the brutal murder in Toulouse.

 

When will we see an Islamic Enlightenment

Telegraph Blogs 22 March 2012
By Allan Massie

I’ve just read a review by Paul Berman in The New Republic of "Silenced: How Apostasy and Blasphemy Codes Are Choking Freedom Worldwide”, written by Paul Marshall and Nina Shea, and published by the Oxford University Press. It’s an examination of how fundamentalist Islam has come to dominate the Muslim world, and of how it is penetrating and infecting Europe and the USA. The authors apparently detail the spreading influence of narrow and bigoted intolerance, and the host of examples they provide, as quoted by the reviewer, must cause distress and anxiety to all who believe in freedom and liberal democracy.

 

An Ex-Muslim’s Open Letter to Muslims of the World

Islam Watch 20 March 2012

Dear Muslim Brothers and Sisters

Greetings in the name of Allah, the beneficent and the Merciful!

Today we are fortunate to watch what is happening in the world on TV from our living rooms – whether it is tsunami, floods, earthquakes, plane crashes, refugee camps, the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan etc. In this panorama of world events, we also watch our Muslim brothers continually involve in unending fights in Palestine, Kashmir, Southern Thailand, Mindanao (Philippines), Nigeria, Chechnya, Burma, Xinxiang province in China etc. We also watch Muslims killing Muslims, or Sunnies fighting against Shiites Ahamadias, Bahais, often attacking their Mosques using suicide bombers.

Who conspired?

dreuz.info 5 March 2012
By Bat Ye’Or

A bad wind blows from Norway onto the world. It is not only the monstrous massacre by the deranged Breivick perpetrated for several hours without the police intervention. Now is added the political violence of a desperate government before the past elections— that it would probably have lost— if the horror caused bythe killing spree of a psychopath, had not given it victory. Exploiting politically this crime, the government launched its bloodhounds, its anathemas, its fatwas and edicts against all writers on the planet who, painfully defying terrorism, professional ruin and social ostracism imposed by the single thought, struggle to maintain democratic freedoms and human dignity in Western societies.
