    France gets priorities right in war against Islamist terror

    The West must mobilize pop culture to overcome ISIS. The question is whether young Muslims can overcome their possible cultural alienation in Western countries, particularly France, with the largest Muslim population in Europe. But France is now taking the lead of the free world...

    European Commission still fails to confirm it opposes plans for blasphemy laws against "Islamophobia"

    The European Commission has still not made a full and unambiguous statement that it would work to block any attempts to stifle criticism of Islam via de facto blasphemy laws touted by Muslim lobby groups in Brussels

    Copenhagen attacks and Western mixed messages

    After Copenhagen, we are tragically reminded that our leaders are sending mixed messages about terrorism both in their dithering about Islamist terror against Israel, and their absurd statements that Islam is an irrelevant factor

    Pope's tragically mistaken intervention on the jihad

    Pope Francis has captured the hearts of many around the world. But to capture our minds he will have to do better than his de facto apologia for Islamist violence. He has made a tragic error of judgement

    Paying for a miracle against Islamist terror?

    The release of women from captivity by Islamist fanatics is of course great news for the victims. But are we paying the terrorists for this? Very troublesome news from Italy must put us on our guard. Weak West is lost on this as on so many related matters

    EU "considering a ban on Islamophobia" after Paris attacks

    After the Charlie Hebdo and related attacks, the European Union is being presented with proposals to ban Islamophobia, so as to stem a perceived backlash against Muslims. Eurocrats are sympathetic but do not believe they are practicable

    John Kerry's blundering "diplomacy"

    The Obama administration showed its true colours in forgetting to turn up for the mass demonstration in Paris. And then they sent John Kerry to kiss and make up. In fact, Kerry was long on the kissing and then fluffed the making up. Marvellous

    Charlie Hebdo: We should not tolerate the intolerant

    There is something deeply problematic about French society, rooted in the French Revolution. The secular state has made people ignorant about religion, fragmenting society in the process. I obviously condemn the massacres in Paris, but I am not Charlie, says Charlotte Kude

    Islamic violence must end. The lives of billions are at stake

    After the tragic events in Paris, some Westerners got the point, most did not. Interestingly, Egypt's President el-Sisi really nailed it in late December asking starkly whether Islam would reform or risk killing the world's population of 7 billion

    Charlie Hebdo's strange cover

    Is anyone else at least slightly perplexed that a quintessentially Christian message of forgiveness is being conveyed on Charlie Hebdo's new cover with reference to Islamist terrorism next to Islam's prophet when the victims were mainly atheists and Jews? Western confusion, anyone?

    A dying Western culture is the problem

    British MPs stood in Westminster Hall holding up pencils and pop-art “Je Suis Charlie” posters. I’m sure that frightened the Islamists. Can anyone imagine Churchill holding up a pencil? We’re not serious about defending our own civilisation

    Charlie Hebdo: it’s time for war against Islamofascism

    My grandfather didn’t fight for freedom in the Second World War against Nazi fascism, only to have Islamofascism take over whilst he’s stuck in a nursing home. I will not stand by and watch as Jewish people are persecuted, intimidated and forced to flee their homes.

    Can Charlie Hebdo's spirit include Israel?

    Western leaders and media must realize that religious minorities in the Middle East are the canary in the coalmine for the West when it comes to Islamist threats. And Israel provides the clearest early warning of all. Je Suis Charlie is all very well, but it's in our vital interests to extend that solidarity to Israel and persecuted Christians

    INSTANT VIEW: Media plays down Paris Kosher pogrom

    The vile anti-Semitic pogrom at a Paris Kosher supermarket on Friday is being dramatically downplayed by a politically correct mainstream media that cannot handle the reality of widespread Jew-hatred among Islamists

    The shameful myth of Charlie Hebdo solidarity

    Our self-censoring politically correct media and politicians believe 'terrorists' emerge from a culture free swamp and only coincidentally imbibe the concepts of their Islamic faith. The shameful truth is that, with very few exceptions, there hasn't been any genuine Charlie Hebdo solidarity. Quite the reverse
