    Sharia in Britain: ignoring common sense

    Long after the horse has bolted the political elites in Britain have now decided to "get tough" on Sharia and radicalisation. But ordinary Britons saw the dangers long ago. All you had to do was use common sense. That was far too much to ask

    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

    A female role model of humanity in Israel

    Is ‘Moderate Islam’ an Oxymoron?

    "Liberal" NGOs' blind eye to MidEast women's rights

    A personal warning over women in Islamic countries

    In her new book, Phyllis Chesler argues that honor-related violence against women and gender apartheid cannot be justified in the name of cultural relativism or religious custom, or political correctness. Western "progressives" should take note

    Desperate oppression of women continues in MidEast

    It comes as no surprise that Israel has the top spot of any country in the Middle East area. It is ranked 53rd, considerably higher than all others, which rank at 100 or below, and the worst of which is at the bottom of the ranking
