In a recent street encounter, she was upbraided by a Muslim for her "Islamophobia” in an attempt to force her into a humiliating retreat while the cameras were running.

Islam conquered most of the Middle East and North Africa and then came across the Straights of Gibraltar and conquered Spain, subjugating the people under Islamic rule, giving the European (mostly Christian and Jewish) people the choice of conversion to Islam or perpetual underling status burdened with a tax on non-Muslims (vital funds Muslims used to finance further conquests).
Islamic armies moved north into what is now France (known as Gaul at the time). That was the high-water mark of Islam's first major invasion of Europe, because it was there they were stopped.

The Passion for Freedom art festival answers three questions:
- 1. What is freedom?
2. How easy it is to lose it?
3. How hard it is to get it back?
It is a competition organised by independent group of friends from all over Europe who protect freedom of speech of artists.
The festival will present the work of 60 "brave artists” contributing film, photography, painting, sculpture, books and other forms of artistic expression, often on highly controversial topics of social importance.
As the Central African Republic faces an Islamic takeover, France is planning to send more troops in and is pushing for United Nations intervention in its former colony.

"A specter is haunting Europe -- the specter of Communism," Karl Marx once famously wrote. It took Europe almost a century to liberate itself from this scourge. Today, another specter is haunting not just Europe, but the entire world -- the specter of Islam.
The biggest danger confronting the West today is not the economic situation, nor is it youth unemployment, nor the dire budget situation of our governments; the biggest danger is one of which we are reminded on an almost daily basis. And, yet, many politicians seem to fail to notice.

A Survey of Islam in Europe: September 2013
In Denmark, construction crews raised the first-ever minaret on September 3 that will alter Copenhagen's low-rise skyline in a colossal project to build the biggest mega-mosque in Scandinavia. The so-called Grand Mosque was made possible through a grant of 150 million kroner ($26 million) from Qatar. This gift has led critics voice concern that the mosque will become a mouthpiece for radical Islam in Denmark.
