"It's life, Jim, but not as we know it": Iran launches space program
"Beware the jihadist in the red shirt. He's always expendable." Just like the nuclear program is only-- only -- for electricity, this is only about launching a satellite. A cover for ballistic missile development? Nah. In this, of course,...
Former Pakistani generals: "the war for the independence of Kashmir cannot be won without jihad"

Revealed: British plan to build training camp for Taliban in order to get them to switch sides

UK: Five misunderstanders of Islam jailed for aiding July 21 bombers
No worries. The guy on the far right could be free in 33 months. They aided the 7/21 would-be jihad-martyrdom bombers. And that once again raises questions about what the Muslim community in Britain is doing, and what Muslim...
Spencer: Slavery, Christianity, and Islam
My article "Slavery, Christianity, and Islam" is up now at First Things. It has become a feature of today's atheist chic to shy bricks at Christianity for its record on slavery. This is part of a larger assault on Western...
"I have talked to loads of Muslim women...the greatest fear they have is not Islamophobia or being attacked by racists or being arrested on suspicion of terrorism. It is from within their own family."
In "My family, my killers" in the Sydney Morning Herald (thanks to JE), James Button provides a generally good overview of the phenomenon of honor killings, although he adds generous coats of PC whitewash: [...] The issue is acutely sensitive...

70-year-old woman, convert from Islam to Christianity, burned to death in Bangladesh

"In 2006, Tufts' Hillel received part of a $1.6-million Department of Homeland Security (DHS) grant to promote 'inter-faith and intercultural dialogue.'" -- from this depressing article Inter-faith Healers: it's the latest racket. Elmer-Gantries galore. Or worse. All Elmer Gantry wanted...
