    So, where are all these British Muslim moderates?

    The Prime Minister was right to highlight the wider narrative that leads to Islamist violence. Trouble is, in British Muslim society “non-violent extremists who radicalise young people” are part of the mainstream, and no-one has the courage to say it

    Cameron campaign against Islamic extremism is long overdue

    Prime Minister David Cameron has announced new measures to crack down on Islamic extremism at home and abroad. For far too long, political correctness has allowed this wicked ideology to flourish. Cameron's remarks may seem late in the day to some, but he's on the right track at last

    Tunisia: How UK's "not Islam" narrative helps terrorists

    UPDATE (for which see below article on Britain's new pro-terror narrative, dated July 1, 2015): Islam can be a religion of peace, but it can also be a religion of war, and many shades in between, including terror. The disastrous narrative that it's not Islam, pushed by British PM Cameron after the Tunisia massacre is a massive boost to the terrorists. It's vital that Cameron et al understand their terrible error

    How Western media enable Islamic terrorism

    The Western media is desperate to whitewash Islamic terrorism, as multiple examples (quoted below) suggest. They try to draw an equivalence between victim and terrorist. But where's the Christian group burning down Mosques to cries of "Christ is Great"?

    ‘Muslim Reformers’: Talking the talk, not walking the walk

    Al Azhar University -- perhaps Islam’s most authoritative voice -- will not even denounce the Islamic State as “un-Islamic.” "Moderate Islam" will remain a contradiction in terms until the "moderation" is proved by walking the walk not talking the talk

    The Koran and eternal war

    As Russia starts to ban Islamic texts on the grounds they incite terrorism, where does that leave the Koran itself which contains the kind of blood curdling injunctions our Western leaders simply won't come to terms with?

    Our politicians must end their fear and evasion on Islam

    The fear of offending Muslims by speaking the truth is endemic in the mainstream British political class, and has been so for decades. We cannot afford politically correct evasions

    ISIS extremists "aren't real Muslims". Really?

    Prime Minister Cameron telling us that ISIS are not real Muslims after the latest beheading is as preposterous as saying that Catholic Popes of the Middle Ages weren't real Christians. Who are you to say?

    Confronting the Islamic threat to the West

    Admitting that the majority, perhaps even 95 per cent of Muslims, do not want to engage in any holy war against infidels, still leaves five per cent, or 75 million, of the total 1.5 billion population, who may be considered a threat

    Allah’s Sword of Terror

    At last, let us understand that the heartbeat of the jihad -- sex, violence, and rapine -- has scarcely changed in nearly fourteen centuries, says Raymond Ibrahim, a rare authority on such matters. Be educated, be shocked

    Islamic Jihad and the doctrine of abrogation

    Why the Koran and the sword are inextricably linked. You think not? So, take issue. But read on. An Egyptian born Christian expert on Islam writes from heart... and mind

    The Pentagon’s bow to Islamic extremism

    No-one is arguing that a beard or a hijab makes for an automatic link with radicalism. But it would be foolish and would go against all the available evidence to deny that a link of some sort exists at some level

    Christmas in Islamic world is a life or death experience

    Be shocked by these examples. As Christians in the West go to church and worship during this Christmas season, it is well to reflect on how merely going to church to worship can be life-threatening for Christians in the Islamic world. One can only hope -- perhaps in vain -- that this Christmas does not add new victims to a very long list

    Lee Rigby killer's UK apologists not just Islamists

    Radical Islam is the most violent ideology of our time. It won't make a blind bit of difference if you're a soldier, a nurse, a butcher, a baker or a candle stick maker: if you're an infidel, you're marked for death

    Imam Incites kids to ‘Slaughter’ Syrian Christians

    In another terrible example of the murderous intentions of Syrian Islamists, killing children is apparently no longer enough. The kids are being incited to kill Christians themselves
