A David Littman Retrospective

Gates of Vienna 22 May 2012

As mentioned in last night’s news feed, the redoubtable Counterjihad activist David Littman died yesterday in Switzerland after a long battle with leukemia.

Mr. Littman has been eloquently eulogized by Jerry Gordon at The New English Review, and by Andy Bostom at his own website. I’m sure many more remembrances will be published in the next few days.

Vlad Tepes has compiled two video retrospectives to illustrate the enormous efforts that David Littman made at the United Nations in the thankless task of resisting the Islamization of that body.

 
 

R.I.P. David Littman

Jihad Watch 21 May 2012

It is with great sadness that I must report that my friend David Littman, one of the foremost warriors for human rights of our age, has died today in Switzerland.

Longtime Jihad Watch readers will recall his many reports at this site (see here -- scroll down), recording his numerous valiant efforts to call the attention of the UN's Human Rights Council to the human rights abuses arising from Islamic law.

 

• Video: David Littman & Operation Mural

To commemorate the recently deceased David Littman, we repost the documentary about Operation Mural. That was a clandestine effort headed by Mossad, Israel's intelligence agency, to facilitate the emigration of Jewish Moroccan children to Israel. While David Littman was the unlikely secret agent at the heart of the operation, he was not even told that he was working for the Mossad back then. Watch to enjoy geuine courage in the face of evil.

 

How Islam Killed Greco-Roman Civilization

FrontPage Magazine 18 May 2012
By Fjordman

A number of books published in recent years have demolished the myth of an allegedly tolerant Islamic culture that preserved the Greco-Roman heritage. Ibn Warraq’s book Why the West Is Best is among the better and more accessible titles in this field. As I concluded in one of my earlier essays, the only part of the ancient Greek heritage that proved to be more compatible with Muslim than with Christian European culture was slavery, and possibly anal sex with young boys in certain parts of the Islamic world.

Amnesty International and Muslim Discrimination in Europe

Gatestone Institute 12 May 2012
By Soeren Kern

A new report from Amnesty International lashes out at "widespread discrimination" against Muslims in Europe. The report directs particular ire at laws banning Muslim veils in public spaces, and excoriates European politicians for helping to "foster a climate of hostility and suspicion against people perceived as Muslim."

Amnesty International omits, however, all instances of discrimination initiated by Muslims against Christians and others in Europe who have taken them in, and who may well feel dismayed by what might be seen as an escalating procession of Muslim demands, threats and attacks.

 

Antisemitism on the Rise in Europe

Gatestone Institute 9 May 2012
By Michael Curtis

The virus of antisemitism persists in haunting Europe. In recent months, antisemitism has been exhibited all too often in European countries, not just in theory but in practice. France has been the scene for the murder of Jewish schoolchildren in Toulouse; attacks on Jewish property in Paris and Dijon; desecration of Jewish graves in Nice, and anti-Semitic graffiti throughout the country.

 

American Diplomats Aware of the Rise of Eurabia in 1974

The Cutting Edge 7 May 2012
By Andrew Bostom

I came across a State Department memo from the U.S. embassy in Madrid , dated September 19, 1974 (1974 Madrid 05880), declassified June 30, 2005. This document reveals that the U.S. was fully aware of the advent of "Eurabia," precisely as self-characterized in an official European socio-political journal bearing the title Eurabia. It seems serendipitous in the midst of Geert Wilders' visit to the U.S. warning of the consequences of Europe's ongoing Islamization
