    Women on the march to Islamism

    The Islamic State has cleverly constructed its propaganda to tempt educated, physically attractive women. It understands that the blonde and blue-eyed female bombers will gain the most foreign publicity and television coverage. But how to subert the lure of fanaticism for women jihadis themselves?

    Have you been radicalised, poor thing?

    He's affectionately now known as Jihadi John. But how he could possibly have been "radicalised" is apparently a total mystery to the BBC and the British establishment. As we continue to commit civilisational suicide, sometimes only satire will do

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    We must defeat not just degrade Islamist terrorism

    We must defeat not just degrade Islamist terror groups. There must be victory. If we're going to achieve that aim we're going to have to get serious, and a whole lot better at knowing who are enemies actually are

    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

    Sexually enslaving kids: A Muslim-world problem

    If you thought the terrible sex-slave scandal in the English city of Rotherham was an exception you'd be sadly wrong. Muslim groups all over the world have been committing similar atrocities, ignored by mainstream media
