The New Trojan Horse for Democracies

Gatestone Institute 10 April 2012
By Michael Curtis

The United States and the democratic European countries both face a challenge: to respond to terrorism, particularly from home-grown terrorists, without violating individual and group civil rights. Britain faced this as a result of the events of July 7, 2005 when four Islamic suicide bombers, most of whom were born and raised in Britain, denoted bombs in London's transport system, killing 52 and injuring over 700. France has now. in March 2012, experienced the brutality of its home–grown terrorist.

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.

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.

"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.

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