Gates of Vienna 4 March 2012
By Peter Warren

Hedge fund manager Peter Warren questions the celebrated rescue package given to European banks and governments. "The entire thing is a giant scam.”

This week the European Centra Bank (ECB) handed out a staggering €530 billion in virtually free loans to 800 banks. The rescue package, called LTRO, is the second dose of a medicine which was first administered in December last year.

Definition of Multiculturalism

Citizen Warrior 20 February 2012

MULTICULTURALISM is a philosophy that appreciates ethnic diversity within a society and that encourages people to learn from the contributions of those of diverse ethnic backgrounds.

There is nothing wrong with multiculturalism. In fact, it's wonderful. It makes the world a better place. It enriches everybody. But wholesale, indiscriminate, across-the-board, reckless multiculturalism is incomplete. It is missing one simple distinction, and that makes it blind.

 
 

Liberals are not moral relativists

EuropeNews 16 February 2012
By Piotr Napierala

I realized that even very intelligent and educated people often struggle with defining liberalism and recognizing its ideology and policy. The reason for it may be the practical approach of liberals, who adopt their ideology to existing conditions and are rarely dogmatic. Liberalism is often mixed with other ideas and ideologies, which makes it even more difficult to establish what in a given political or social programme is liberal, and what is for instance democratic, libertarian, nationalistic etc.

The OSCE: Yet Another Avenue for Islamists to Control Speech

Family Security Matters 10 February 2012
By Andrew E. Harrod and Adam Turner

Although more attention goes to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation's (OIC) prominent attempts to police speech in Western nations regarding Islam-related topics through the UN and the "Istanbul Process", Muslim and Islamist desires to restrict critical speech concerning Islam-related topics and promote a positive image of their religion have also played a role in yet another international organization's efforts to address the debate about Islam and Muslims.

Ruth Dudley Edwards: Twisted concept of honour shames any civilised society

Independent.ie 8 February 2012

You probably saw last week the terrible story of the Shafias. Mohammad Shafia was an Afghani, who -- after making money in property in Dubai -- emigrated to Canada.

With him he brought two wives. Rona Amir Mohammad, his first, had been unable to bear children and he had taken a second, Tooba (Muslims are permitted four), by whom he had seven children. Rona, who was passed off as a cousin, helped to rear the family.

 

Ibn Warraq's insightful and inspiring defense of Western civilization

Jihad Watch 3 February 2012
By Robert Spencer

In my Crisis column this week I review Ibn Warraq's extraordinary new book, Why the West Is Best:

Why the West is Best: A Muslim Apostate’s Defense of Liberal Democracy.
By Ibn Warraq, Encounter Books, 286 pages, $19.

One principal reason why the Islamic jihad is advancing with such confidence around the world today is because its chief competitor, the West, has lost its nerve. The iron and unquestionable dogma of multiculturalism has eaten away at its self-confidence and left only a relativism that walks to the brink of excusing genocide.

Europeans Increasingly Converting to Islam

Hudson New York 30 January 2012
By Soeren Kern

Irish actor Liam Neeson says he is thinking about becoming a Muslim after undergoing a spiritual awakening in Turkey.

Neeson, who was born into a Roman Catholic family in Ballymena, Northern Ireland, told the London-based newspaper The Sun that he was impressed by the religious atmosphere in Istanbul while filming a movie in the city.

He said: "The [Islamic] call to prayer happens five times a day, and for the first week, it drives you crazy, and then it just gets into your spirit, and it's the most beautiful, beautiful thing. There are 4,000 mosques in the city. Some are just stunning, and it really makes me think about becoming a Muslim."
