Once again, a Western institution has been humiliated by determined envoys from the Islamic world.
Behind the title "High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy” hides Baroness Catherine Ashton – probably the most insecure, most ignorant and weakest top bureaucrat that the EU could possibly send to meet a group of self-confident and demanding men who knew exactly what they wanted, and got it .

The International Civil Liberties Alliance (ICLA) held a well attended side event at the OSCE conference in Warsaw yesterday. The main focus of the event was the 2012 Brussels Process and the 2012 Brussels Declaration To Safeguard Individual Liberties and Human Rights with which regular visitors to our site will be familiar.

Canada's National Post takes aim at a word that is being used to stifle debate and destroy foes of jihad and Islamic supremacism. "Opinion: Stop calling criticism of Islam ‘Islamophobia,’" by Jackson Doughart and Faisal Saeed al-Mutar in the National Post, September 26
The English language needs a moratorium on the word Islamophobia, a term often used to describe bigotry against Muslims. Unfortunately, it is also used reflexively to denounce critics of Islam, who contribute to a valuable and ongoing debate concerning the relationship between the West and the worldwide Islamic community. This subject is important because several Western countries, such as Denmark, Great Britain, and the Netherlands, are being forced to reconsider their approaches to immigration and culture in light of deep clashes between the Muslim immigrants and the native population.

This subject is important because several Western countries, such as Denmark, Great Britain, and the Netherlands, are being forced to reconsider their approaches to immigration and culture in light of deep clashes between the Muslim immigrants and the native population. These tensions have captured much attention in recent weeks with the series of violent protests that have spread to over twenty countries, emanating from the controversial Innocence of Muslims film.
