Islam and its Denial – Part VI

Andrew Sullivan describes the Republican Party as divided between two types of conservatives: “conservatives of doubt and conservatives of faith.” While his terms may not get the divide right – liberty isn’t based on skepticism – his extensive description does raise a number of important points.In passing, however, I was surprised […]

J’Accuse Kofi Annan

During the last half year, Kofi Annan has revived an old U.N. policy under a new label: Islamophobia. This is an absurd attempt to pre-empt the sudden criticism of radical Islam both in the United States and Europe by labeling it bigotry and dismissing it from the outset. Despite the President’s expression of admiration […]

"It’s the result of foreign policy"

The blame-America first crowd claims that Islamic terrorism is the result of America’s foreign policy. However, the jihadists have been waging a religious war around the world and they have for some time. It’s with good reason that Samuel Huntington says that Islam has “bloody borders.” This website documents the daily killings motivated and […]
