Here. She and a colleague were investigating a traffic violation. Her back was turned. A man wearing a bullet-proof vest shot her and that colleague. She is dead. He hasn't been identified yet. But he was a Muslim. You know that and I know that; why pretend we have to wait before identifying him ...Read More...

Many in France are urging that everyone be on guard so as to avoid the terrible, mortal, not venial, sin of lumping together "all Muslims," to be careful not to do that because, you see, that's exactly "what the terrorists want." Remember Shimon Peres who, after every PLO atrocity, would declare that ...Read More...

Todd Beamon writes at Newsmax: A new study shows that the number of immigrants in the United States jumped 3 percent in three years — to a record 41.3 million in 2013 — and that the nearly 300,000 who came from Muslim countries pose a major national security threat, the report's co-author told Newsmax ...Read More...

Shostakovich, in his memoirs (whose authenticity some have disputed), describes a minister in the Soviet Union praising a great Soviet cultural event, such as (says Shostakovich) the closing of a theater.

Simon Jenkins turns out to be -- I'm not surprised -- a Defender of the Faith. It's not Islam. It's not "religious." It's a "cultural" response, and it really has to do with the Middle East. No mention of Qur'anic texts, and how they are received. No mention of the Hadith, or of exactly what Muhammad ...Read More...

Watch, as Maajid Nawaz, manages, in his very first words on CNN last night, to call for "solidarity" by which he means "solidarity" of non-Muslims with Muslims, in this time of their -- the Muslims' -- vulnerability, and possible subjection to suspicion or hatred or attacks. And then, in his pro-forma ...Read More...

In 2004, I wrote a book that was published only in French, La Perfidie de l’Histoire,  It was a scholarly book, but I had a basic political objective: to warn about the impact of mass Muslim immigration into France and western Europe. My publisher, Olivier Véron, took me around to some editors of French ...Read More...

So many Berbers have been killed by Arabs, forcibly islamized by Arabs, forcibly arabized after they had been islamized, all over the Maghreb.

They did not enter, and simply spray the room with gunfire, as the BBC appears even now to think. They separated the men from the women. And then they called out, from a list, those they wished to kill, and shot them, as their names were called out and they acknowledged who they were, in the head. That's ...Read More...

He does not come out straightforwardlly against Islam tout court, Islam of Qur'an and Sunnah. He comes out against "islamisme," and "djihadisme" and "Islam politique."
