Iraqi Christians ask Baghdad government to defend minority rights

Spencer interview: “The problem of jihad has been drastically misdiagnosed by the authorities, leading to numerous policy errors”

The whole interview is here, along with some prefatory material that embarrassingly praises me overmuch, but if you can get past that, the interview may be of some interest — although I see in retrospect that I was a bit terse. Here […]

Panetta: Jihadist cleric has “declared war” on the U.S.

In these remarks Panetta continues the atomization of the global jihad that is essentially official Obama Administration policy. He will recognize that Anwar al-Awlaki has declared war on the U.S., and that al-Qaeda has declared war on the U.S., but he and others in the Administration and the State Department establishment will neither acknowledge nor […]

Misunderstander of Islam involved in jihad plot at JFK Airport pleads guilty to lesser charge

The mastermind of this jihad plot was a cargo handler at JFK Airport — because no one would dream of preventing Muslims from taking such sensitive jobs around airplanes, or even questioning them about their beliefs and loyalties before hiring them. That would be “Islamophobic,” and who cares if one of these jihad plots ultimately […]

Sudanese police arrest models after fashion show

Slow day for Muslim outrage: Muslims find “Christian fashion show” to enrage them

The fashion show was “Christian” in the sense that it was held in a Christian village.

French PM to Muslims: “You should stand in the front line against this hijacking of the religious message”

It is true that Muhammad in a hadith says that women should cover everything but face and hands. The face veil is on shakier Islamic ground. Nonetheless, Fillon’s appeal is likely to fall on deaf ears, as do all such appeals from non-Muslim leaders. “French PM urges Muslims to reject ‘hijacked Islam,’” by Elizabeth Pineau […]
