    First victim of “blasphemy laws” would be Islam itself

    If international laws would ban cartoons, books, and films on the basis that they defame Islam, they would also, by logical extension, have to ban the entire religion of Islam itself -- the only major religion whose core texts actively and unequivocally defame other religions, including by name

    Muslim persecution of Christians: A 1,400 year tradition

    Muslim persecution of Christians exists in 40 nations today as part of a continuum -- or “tradition” -- that started nearly 14 centuries ago. A new study shows a horrific reality that you just won't read in our mainstream media

    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

    How the West destroyed Libya, and empowered Islamism

    Blundering Western policy in the Middle East and elsewhere has only empowered Islamism and, thus, led to a massive increase in the persecution of Christians. We don't know what we are doing abroad, any more than at home

    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

    Media prioritises Muslim school kids over Christian school kids

    The recent terrible attack on a school in Pakistan by the Taliban rightly received wide coverage in the mainstream media. But this was because the victims were Muslim children. When the victims are Christian children our media ignores or downplays it. Why?

    How Western media enable Islamic terrorism

    The Western media is desperate to whitewash Islamic terrorism, as multiple examples (quoted below) suggest. They try to draw an equivalence between victim and terrorist. But where's the Christian group burning down Mosques to cries of "Christ is Great"?

    ‘Muslim Reformers’: Talking the talk, not walking the walk

    Al Azhar University -- perhaps Islam’s most authoritative voice -- will not even denounce the Islamic State as “un-Islamic.” "Moderate Islam" will remain a contradiction in terms until the "moderation" is proved by walking the walk not talking the talk

    The Koran and eternal war

    As Russia starts to ban Islamic texts on the grounds they incite terrorism, where does that leave the Koran itself which contains the kind of blood curdling injunctions our Western leaders simply won't come to terms with?

    Is Russia banning Islam?

    Russia is taking a hard line against Sharia and Islamic texts because, for all of the criticism of Vladimir Putin, the country has understood the link between classical Islam and terrorism. Should we follow suit?

    A Dead Caliph vs. the Hydra of Jihad

    Our hopeless Western leaders and mainstream media consistently miss the point about defeating the Islamists: victory can only come when the violent ideologies of radical Islam are cauterized with fire

    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

    ISIS sex slaves, Muhammad, and Western confusion

    While, preposterously, Western leaders keep saying that Islamic State terrorists are not real Muslims, Islamic State just keeps on pointing to the Koran and the Prophet to justify atrocities. You couldn't make it up, and they don't have to!

    Islamic State beheads, mutilates as the Koran instructs

    Obama, Cameron et al say Islamic State are just a bunch of barbarians, not real Muslims. But as they behead and mutilate "infidels" they're only doing what the Koran and the Prophet instructs

    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
