I never knew she cared Imagine my surprise yesterday afternoon when a reporter asked me for comment on the late Benazir Bhutto's attack on me in her book Reconciliation: Islam, Democracy, and the West. I hadn't read the book,...
In search of...moderate Muslims
A few days ago the European blogger Michael van der Galien, with whom I had an exchange about "pure Islam" here last year, wrote a post at his PoliGazette entitled "The Spell of Islamophobia and Moderate Muslims." In it, van...
Iranian textbooks: "Every Muslim youth must strike fear in the hearts of the enemies of God and their people through combat-readiness and skillful target shooting"
This is nothing new, of course, but the more exposure it gets, the better. The one aspect that is missing from this discussion is a grasp of the believer-unbeliever dynamic in Islam and the resulting dhimmi laws and imperative to...
Abbas' advisor caught at Allenby crossing with 2,000 smuggled cell phones

India: Writer flees Islamic death threats
She "had been seeking permanent residence in India, where she moved after spending time in Europe and the United States. But New Delhi had stalled the request, fearful of a backlash from the country's 140 million-plus Muslims, and has given...
"Two-Year-Old Anti-Islam Book Infuriates Moslems"

"Be aware of following the path that will take you and us into a dangerous abyss." But he did temper the howling absurdity of this somewhat by also scolding those who commit violence because of cartoons. "Egyptian president warns against...
PA urges "Palestinian" "refugees" to "return" to Israel
If only those who were actual refugees at the time of the UN Resolution returned, it would be a handful. And if it includes anyone else, it is a manipulative political charade. Imagine if all the refugees from the Ottoman...

Bernard Lewis: Christians and Muslims have "common beliefs" leading to "long succession of jihad and crusade, jihad and crusade"

Iran: "We find ourselves facing what is more than a conversion to the Christian faith. It's a mass exodus from Islam"
