A Friday Night Roundup

Seems Clinton would be smarter to let this lie than invite more scrutiny: That would be the opinion of many, including Instapundit who reports that the Clintonistas are trying mightily to force a do-over on ABC's The Path to 9/11. This is an interesting problem. Supposedly the Clintons are concerned that they come off as a bit negligent in the 1990's (!)...if they can't get an edit to a more comfortable "truth" their only recourse will be do send the usual talking heads out to discredit the … [Read more...]

Muslim kills Jews? Road Rage? -UPDATED

:::UPDATE II::: A reader graciously sent me a link to this map which really lays out the path of the perp. Clearly the neighborhood was not "Jewish," and although I did qualify my remarks (saying it "appeared to be a somewhat Jewish neighborhood" on the basis of the first input of readers), on further examination, one cannot conclude that the perp was "targeting Jews." Whether this can rightly be called "terrorism" at this point is debatable. I don't mind saying it when I am wrong, and I feel … [Read more...]

“Forced Conversions? Hey, no prob, man!”

Hey, that Spanish Inquisition, that was pretty bad, what with forcing folks to convert to Catholicism or die, huh?Good thing stuff like that doesn't happen anymore...or, you know, if it does it's no big deal! It's not like they're burning people at the stake or anything, right? It's not like during the Crusades when a captured Christian soldier might have his feet boiled in oil unless he claimed "There is no God but Allah, and Mohammed is his prophet..."It's all so civilized, now. Sure, … [Read more...]

Zarqawi’s Mother’s Blog

Brilliant. I wish I'd thought of it, it's very clever and terribly, terribly offensive and politically incorrect. As is most good satire. You are warned.Greetings to all of my fans and pigeaters destined to have their flesh ripped to pieces in fiery rings of Hell! I met Tom Cruise at a party for Oprah and Ralph, and he seemed like a nice fellow. Short, but nice. He started to talk to me about thetans and I tuned him out. I am getting used to LA, but so many pigeaters. Where do they come … [Read more...]

A Reformist Muslim response?

I, among others, have been asking - rhetorically - "where are the moderate/reformist Muslims? We need to hear them!"It seems one is speaking up - and this is a very heartening message:Unlike some of my fellow believers I don’t think that the recent glut of Westerners calling for the reformation of Islam is due solely to an imperial Western ambition. I believe that much of non-Muslim engagement with Islam is premised upon a well-intentioned impulse. I believe that some Western antipathy t … [Read more...]

Iran, the Test Case? The world is failing

Iran is the test case. It is the most dangerous political entity on the planet, and yet the world response has been catastrophically slow and reluctant. Years of knowingly useless negotiations, followed by hesitant international resolutions, have brought us to only the most tentative of steps--referral to a Security Council that lacks unity and resolve. Iran knows this and therefore defiantly and openly resumes its headlong march to nuclear status. If we fail to prevent an Iranian regime run by … [Read more...]

Abdul Rahman Vanishes – Deathfans and Fascists afoot

This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live. - Deut 30:19This doesn't feel too good to my gut.An Afghan man who had faced the death penalty for converting from Islam to Christianity quickly vanished Tuesday after he was released from prison, apparently out of fear for his life with Muslim clerics still demanding his death. [...] "We released him last night … [Read more...]

Hating Islam

I have been meaning to link to this piece by Siggy - in fact I did link to it, somewhere - but it deserves notice on its own, apart from a roundup of posts.Siggy hates Islam and explains why:I have more than a passing knowledge of Arab Muslim history and culture and I am familiar with current Arab politics. I have visited the region a number of times and consider myself well read and au courrant when discussing Arab affairs. [...]My hatred for all things Islamic stems from the truth that … [Read more...]

Abdul Rahman’s fate is still not clear

SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATEIs it just me, or does it feel like a giant, cosmic gauntlet has been thrown down from on High? Like in this Lenten season, leading up to Easter, the Christian nations are being put to a test - the test being, as Mark Steyn asks in his outstanding and brave column, Will We Stick Our Necks Out for His Faith?The answer is very important, I think.The fragile Afghan state is protected by American, British, Canadian, Australian, Italian and other troops, hundreds of whom … [Read more...]

French Muslims destroying precious books? UPDATED

UPDATE: There are some indications that this story is not quite accurate - that the books in question may have been undergoing restoration. At this point, take it all with a grain of salt - or not at all - unless I get something solid to confirm it.***If this story is accurate, this is indeed very troubling.Muslims and leftists totalitarians destroy France’s millennium Christian legacyAfter destroying the Buddhas of Afghanistan, burning the Churches of Kosovo, Muslims are now d … [Read more...]
