    Bullingdon bomber has his majority. Now what for Syria?

    Cameron won a great victory, and Corbyn suffered a humiliating defeat in the Syria vote. But the big question remains: in this vastly complicated situation, what are we going to achieve?

    Immigration and the Syrian problem

    Concerning Syria and terrorism it is vital to see the need for stronger and more effective border checks and controls on potential terrorist seeking entry or seeking to return to our country after undergoing training in violence and radical extremism

    Where is the Cavalry?

    A world without the US as global policeman will collapse into chaos. Many do not like talking about it like that, but it's true

    Syrian Jihadis ‘Take Aim’ at Christian Toddler

    Surely “teasing” an infidel toddler – a subhuman – with their rifles and sharing it with their sadistic comrades via the Internet for a “laugh” should not be too surprising? After all, we're not naive are we?

    The 12 kidnapped nuns, and animal infidels

    To their Islamist captors, not only are the Christian women hostages to be used for leverage, but ideologically speaking, they are “infidel” inferiors -- near sub-humans who are more akin to animals

    Arab dictators wiser than Western politicians?

    Why is it that the Arab dictators really did do a better job of protecting their Christian minorities than the US or its Sunni allies? Raymond Ibrahim explains what's in it for the dictators

    U.S. delusions, persecuted Christians, and Syria

    No-one of any decency likes Assad. But John Kerry’s pledge that Christians and other minorities would be protected from Jihadists if he goes is an insult to our intelligence

    More holes than Swiss cheese: Policy on Iran and Syria

    In Geneva and Montreux, Switzerland played host to major conferences featuring Iran and Syria. Nothing was resolved. Our leaders either kick the can down the road or miss all the important points entirely

    Christian massacres: collateral damage of US policy

    Where the U.S. works to oust secular autocrats, the quality of life for Christians and other minorities takes a major downturn. The last Christian church in Afghanistan was demolished under the nose of the U.S. in 2010

    Islamists latest shocking brutalisation of women

    Not only Christians, but all women have been banned from sitting on chairs, seeing male gynecologists, smoking, and much more besides. All this from Islamist "freedom fighters" in Syria

    UKIP welcomes refugees in need

    The fact of even a single British person turning their backs on genuine refugees fleeing for their lives, as in the Syrian case, is shocking and to be lamented. That's what UKIP believes. In common with many mature democracies, we just oppose mass waves of unregulated immigration for Britain

    Twilight zone between international law and morality

    In the case of Iran -- where the country has consistently lied -- the question of infringing sovereignty versus ignoring basic morality can't be divorced from stated political aims of the regime as proclaimed by President Ahmedinejad when in office: the destruction of a member state of the UN, Israel. The lesson applies widely; the dilemma is real

    In search of better choices for the Middle East

    Bloody Autocracy, Religious Kleptocracy, Unstable Democracy. The international community has been wholly unable to adapt to a region where popular passion now matters more than cozy pacts with corrupt dictators, says Les Campbell of the National Democratic Institute

    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

    The Islamic Jihad on Christian nuns

    SEE SHOCKING UPDATE BELOW THE PIECE AS WESTERN FEMINISTS COMPARE OUR CONCERN FOR RAPED CHRISTIANS TO HOWLING DOGS (LITERALLY!): The Western mainstream claims to care about women's rights, and to abhor crimes such as rape. So why the silence when the victims are Christian nuns and the perpetrators male, Muslim extremists?
