It is appropriate and gratifying that the Islamic terrorists who, armed with military Kalashnikov weapons in a well-planned attack, murdered 12 people, the chief editor and his staff, in the office of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo (CH) in Paris on January 7, 2014, were killed two days later by ...Read More...

If Islam encouraged rational and logical thought, if Islam did not punish skeptical questioning, if the texts of Islam, and the example of Muhammad, spoke endlessly about love and charity, instead of about killing one's enemies --and those enemies are defined as those who refuse to ...Read More...

From the Daily Mail A heroic customer at the kosher supermarket in Paris snatched one of the terrorist's guns and turned it on the hostage taker - only to find it was jammed, leaving the extremist to execute him in cold blood. I think the correct word is murder.  The dramatic account was revealed ...Read More...

The shots in the Paris street that were seen and heard around the world killed Ahmed Merabet, a Muslim policeman going to the defense of Charlie Hebdo: a reminder that by no means all Muslims in France, far from it, are France-hating, Allahu-akbar-shouting fanatics, and that many are well-integrated. ...Read More...

Here is the article. It's meant to be tough on Islam and Muslims, by asking them to stand up and denounce the murderers in Paris for "not being Muslims." It contains statements that are both widely disseminated, and absurd. The first is the idea that since one of the policemen killed was a Muslim, this ...Read More...

The government-subvented mosques, the government-paid imams (Dalil Boubakeur in the lead), will turn out the troops, or enough of them, expressing their fake indignation and supposed solidarity with the laic Republic and Voltaire and so on and so forth.
