Valls chooses to recognize that  there is a problem, but he's limiting his understanding to "radicalisation" and not to Daw'a itself. A great  mistake.. The place in France, and in the United Kingdom, and everywhere in Europe, to find the highest percentage of Muslims in a given subset of the population  ...Read More...

Allen Clifton writes: I’m Running Out of Ways to Defend Islam I’ll be honest, as badly as I want to stand in the face of some right-wing radical who’s proclaiming that Islam is a violent, hateful religion and tell them that they’re an idiot and nothing but an ignorant jackass – I don’t know if I ...Read More...

I don't know what the to-be-published-posthumously Vie de Mahomet, written and illustrated by the murdered cartoonists of Charlie-Hebdo, will show from the life of Muhammad. Will we have depicted little Aisha, first espied by Muhammad when she was six, and then married to him when she was nine? Will ...Read More...

Robert Blitt writes in USA Today: Many have taken false comfort in blaming the cold-blooded attack of Charlie Hebdo on the fanatical action of a small minority of Muslims. But attributing the horror perpetrated in Paris to a band of Salafist radicals alone betrays a willful blindness to a longstanding ...Read More...

Mayor Aboutaleb's good -- just a little too good -- press for his "fuck off" to Musliims who don't like it in the Netherlands. Good can come of this, and evil. The good is obvious: Muslims are not wanted, have earned distrust and dislike. That has happened everywhere, even in such countries as the ...Read More...

It might be good to have the most telling portions of this article translated into French, and re-circulated, as widely as possible.  And if the Independent, and other outlets, had any brains, and any guts, they would be republishing it, within the week. http://www.independent.co.uk/opinion/islam-back-to-the-dark-ages-we-should-not-repeal-the-enlightenment-to-appease-ayatollahs-says-conor-cruise-obrien-1382946.html "Islam: ...Read More...

Angela Merkel apparently thinks that just because, out of criminal negligence, many Turks, and then other Muslims, were allowed to come and settle within Germany in the last few decades, this means that Muslims are, or can be, part of the fabric of Germany society. She appears to believe, without having ...Read More...

The Diane Rehm show today was devoted to the topic of terror and the global response. There were several guests. Not much of value was said. Paul Pillar, who -- like Michael Scheuer, with whom he has affinities -- was once at the C.I.A., and supposed to understand enough about Islam to grasp the nature ...Read More...

The word "chantier" does not mean "projects" but a literal translation of "chantier" would not do, or even come close. I also thought of "undertakings" and "initiatives." But I stuck with "proposals." And then , at the last minute, americanizing it even more, for "proposals" I substituted "things." His ...Read More...
