Very Little to Debate at ‘Human Rights in Islam’ Discussion

It is impossible for me to provide a complete account of the debate on "Human Rights in Islam: Just or Unjust?” that was held under the auspices of IslamNet, Norway’s largest Islamic organization, on

• 50.000 x EuropeNews & ”No Tolerance for Intolerance”

EuropeNews 28 November 2011

EuropeNews has now reached 50.000 posts, marking more than four years of uninterrupted service in basically the same form as we started

The fundamental aim of EuropeNews remains the same as well, namely providing a compact overview of news that matter. Also unchanged is our slogan:

"No Tolerance for Intolerance – No Apology for Being Free”.

The Paradox of Tolerance

The first part of our slogan derives from the Paradox of Tolerance, that a person or a group taking pride in his supreme tolerance might in fact be profoundly intolerant, not least against those he judges to be "intolerant”, be it in the form of "bigoted”, "discriminating” or even "racist”. The classical notion that discriminating is wisdom and a virtue, not a sin, seems all but forgotten.

The following essay by Fjordman was published a few days ago in Dagbladet. Many thanks to Cecilie for the translation.

Islamophile Illusions
by Fjordman

I have challenged Marie Simonsen, commentator in Dagbladet, to provide some concrete examples of places where Muslims have lived peacefully with their non-Muslim neighbors over longer periods of time. Personally, I don’t think any such place exists, which means that the term Islamophobia, so frequently used by her newspaper and others, is completely meaningless.

Islam and the Greco-Roman Cultural Heritage

Gates of Vienna 19 November 2011
By Peder Jensen, a.k.a. Fjordman

The following essay by Fjordman was refused publication at the Norwegian newspaper VG. Many thanks to Cecilie for the English translation.

The original Norwegian version, which has also appeared at Snaphanen, is at the bottom of this post.


Islam and the Greco-Roman cultural heritage

Researcher Vidar Enebakk from the University of Oslo wrote an essay for VG this autumn regarding the articles I have published on the Internet about the history of science, from astronomy and geology to quantum physics. According to him, the range of my writings is impressive, their contents "frighteningly good.” This is of course nice to hear.

Norway Embraces Islamist Tyranny

Hudson New York 17 November 2011
By Bruce Bawer

Anti-Semitism in Norway, where I have lived for twelve years, is over the top. I have never quite gotten used to it. Every now and then I hear or read something that reminds me that I am living in Europe, in a country that was occupied by the Nazis, and where a lot of people were perfectly okay with that. I think it is fair to say that anti-Semitism in Norway is most virulent among the cultural elite – the academics, intellectuals, writers, journalists, politicians, and technocrats – although thanks to the media and schools, it has trickled down to many ordinary Norwegians, some of whom may never even have met a Jewish person.

The greatest threat to women? Islamic law

WND 12 November 2011
By Diana West

We haven't had a good, old-fashioned "feeding frenzy," a la Herman Cain, for a long time – maybe not since the days of Dan Quayle. I'm talking about the kind of media wilding where someone is a whole person one day, and then the piranhas swim in and a gnawed carcass is all that remains. It's especially hard to look at when the victim joins in to shoot himself in the foot, but that's another story.

It’s Time for British Freedom

Gates of Vienna 10 November 2011

Most Western European countries have at least one recognized political party that opposes mass immigration and Islamization. Such parties provide a viable alternative to all the Socialist and "Center-Right” parties that keep spooning up the same old multicultural pabulum, forcing it down the throats of the populace no matter how much it makes them choke.

"Islamophobia”, Censorship, and Pedophilia in the Norwegian Media

Gates of Vienna 7 November 2011

The Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet once again refused to publish one of Fjordman’s replies to the attacks on him. The English translation of the rejected essay is posted below, followed by the original Norwegian.
Fjordman includes this introductory note:

Dagbladet refused to publish this brief essay. They claim that their journalist was only arguing that Heine Fjordland is not intended to make fun of the handicapped, that the essay therefore had nothing to do with me, and that therefore the right to reply does not apply in this case.

 

Video: Police Report: All Assault Rapists in Oslo Follow Muhammad

Israel National News 7 November 2011
By Gil Ronen

Defenders of Islam call it a "religion of peace" but many Norwegian women are learning that Islam is the religion of rape. According to an amazing police report released there this month, every single solved case of assault-rape in the country in 2010 was carried out by a Muslim immigrant.The report was cited by an official Norwegian television station, which interviewed a victim who said that her rapist explained to her that his religion permits him to rape her.
