    Islamist rape of "white women" as old as Islam itself

    Byzantine women, or, “white women,” were long viewed as the “femme fatale” of Islam -- from a carnal perspective, the most desired, from a pious perspective, the most despised of women. How little has changed, as events from Britain through Scandinavia to Islamic State testify

    Betraying non-Muslim friends and neighbours

    One of the greatest unreported tragedies of the jihad in the Middle East and elsewhere is that the seemingly moderate Muslim neighbours of Christians and other non-Muslims so often betray them to death, torture and exile as soon as radical jihad looks as though it has a chance of success

    Where’s the Pope’s encyclical on Christian persecution?

    The fact that Pope Francis is prepared to issue an encyclical on the environment but not on the vast persecution of Christians across the Islamic world is as sad a statement as one could imagine on the power political correctness now exerts in the West

    Islamic Jizya: Fact vs Fiction

    The payment of the Jizya, on pain of death, by non-Muslims to their Muslim masters is a form of slavery. It is designed to degrade, despite ludicrous statements to the contrary from Western "liberals". It is fundamental to Islam, and it is coming back

    Exposed: Obama’s policies to empower ISIS

    For those able to read the plain writing on the wall, the end game between Obama and the Islamic State was always easy to discern. The administration's incompetence is a product of its total failure to understand the nature of jihad

    Supremacist roots of Islamic world's ‘grievance’ culture

    What the West appears incapable of understanding is that Muslim "grievances" that appeasers say we must address are based on significant strands of superemacism within the Islamic tradition. Applied to anyone else, we'd call it racism. But how "Islamophobic" to say so!

    The Islamic Reformation: Abandon all hope? Self-cretinisation?

    Every right-thinking individual wants an Islamic version of the Reformation. But what if the Reformation has already happened? ISIS-level butchery, rape and torture may be the best political Islam can offer. Politically correct idiocy aside, can we reflect on this?

    Ignoring the Armenian genocide by the last Islamic caliphate

    The genocide of Armenian Christians by Ottoman Muslims was very real, so was the appalling torture. Women were raped and crucified, people had horseshoes nailed to their feet as they were marched through the streets. Unspeakable atrocities were perpetrated. Yet almost no-one in the Islamic world, and too few in the West will acknowledge it even happened

    Christians massacred in Libya, Western Christians next

    Jihadi leaders, ideologues, emirs, sultans, caliphs, even the prophet of Islam himself, have come and gone for nearly 1,400 years -- but the jihad rages on. Right now the slaughter of Christians is being massively downplayed by Western media, even as the perpetrators are clear that we in the West are next

    Obama’s ‘Christianity’: A political tool to silence Christians

    For all his faults on the subject, at least British Prime Minister David Cameron has talked about Christian persecution in the Muslim world. Barack Obama actually uses and abuses Christianity to shut down the discussion altogether. What a disastrous failure of leadership

    A massacre of Christians to ponder at Easter

    Yet again, the mainstream media is playing down the massacre of Christians in the Islamic world. The slaughter of 147 in Kenya is portrayed as an isolated incident. But it isn't. It's par for the course and it could be the shape of things to come for all of us. Ponder that this Easter

    Obama trusts ‘Word’ of ayatollahs in nuclear negotiations

    It is almost unbelievable that Barack Obama trusts Iran over nuclear weapons even as the country's leaders chant "Death to America", and openly say that diplomatic talks are a central part of the Jihad. Obama just doesn't get it, and puts the world in mortal danger

    Enough of saying jihadists aren't real Muslims

    Our leaders keep trying to tell us that jihadists aren't real Muslims. But the world’s Muslims aren’t holding their breath to hear what sort of Islamic legitimacy the West is about to confer on any given Islamist group. We need to stop dissembling and tell the truth about Islam

    Obama’s self-professed “Confusion” about Islamic terror

    Obama misrepresented episodes from Christian history to exonerate Islamic terror during the National Prayer Breakfast, and he misrepresented Christian virtues like humility to create doubt and moral confusion concerning Islamic terror. What a mess!

    The true history of Europe and Islam

    Our political leaders, our mainstream academics, and media keep lying to us about the history of Islamic imperialism. The crusades were a minor distraction, and merely a response, to Islam's ongoing war against Western civilisation
