    The West: Desensitized to Islamist violence

    These days, only the dramatic instances of violent jihad get reported in mainstream media. One wonders how long before Charlie Hebdo-style attacks also lose their newsworthiness, becoming commonplace and expected, as the tentacles of the jihad continue to grow

    Making excuses for Islamism

    Why do Conservatives like Dan Hannan fail to get the point about Islamism and Islam? Theirs is a different kind of denial from the Left's but it is still based on deep-seated flaws. There's also an unholy alliance between the Left and some on the Right on Islamism

    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?

    Charlie Hebdo massacre. The price of Western cowardice?

    The slaughter of French journalists at Charlie Hebdo by Islamist fanatics should shock everyone but surprise no-one. Things have been heading this way for years. The Islamists have got the message that our leaders are weak and that their commitment to free speech is meaningless piffle. UPDATE: See below as the dissemblers enter the fray

    Islamic "Reformation" fails as child marriage re-affirmed

    All enlightened people want to believe in an Islamic "Reformation", mainly because we don't want unending conflict. Trouble is Muslims must follow Mohammed's example, and that poses problems where the abuse of young girls is concerned

    Islamist plans right on track, and the West is helping

    If any eyes were opened after the 9/11 attacks, they weren’t Western eyes -- certainly not the eyes of Western leadership, mainstream media, and academia. Islamists believe they're right on track. They could be right

    Islam is changing the West

    Western leaders keep saying that we must not be intimidated by militant Islam. Yet their actions suggest we are indeed being intimidated, all the time, and that our way of life in Britain and elsewhere is changing

    Western survival requires the end of Islamist jihadism

    The world is now full of jihadist groups, whether al-Qaeda, the Nusra Front, or the Islamic State, some of whose supporters are trained to carry out terrorist attacks in their Western countries of origin. Yet, our leaders fiddle while the West burns

    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?

    UK failure on Islamism and James Foley's murder

    Leftists who have spent years defending Islamic extremism in Britain, labelling anyone who has raised concerns as bigoted, have been proved wrong. The Left, and those on the Right who cower before Leftist mantras, have much to answer for after James Foley's murder

    Islamism's existential threat, and Western chaos

    With events in Iraq in mind, while it may be dawning on some of our leaders that we face an existential threat from Islamism one really wonders what it will take for them to get their act together. Do we have to wait for a bomb in the Channel Tunnel?

    Islamist threat in Iraq will only grow if we are weak

    However weary of Iraq we may be, Britain has a duty to intervene to prevent the genocide of Christians and the other victims of an Islamist threat that won't go away just because we can't be bothered to get serious

    Trojan Horse teachers should be jailed

    Under the previous Labour government, a culture of political correctness meant Islamic extremism was allowed to spread unopposed and unchallenged at every level of society. Those days must now come to an end

    BBC: Institutional fear of speaking truth on Islamism

    There is a problem in Britain when it comes to discussing objectively the issue of Islamism. Nowhere is this more demonstrable than at the BBC

    Charity gone bad: When western charities and Islamism combine

    We ought to be careful when deciding which NGOs and charities to support. Some are not as helpful as they may seem, especially where Islamism is concerned
