  • Catholics leaving Bosnia-Herzegovina (forced Islamization)

    Christians are massively leaving post-war Bosnia-Herzegovina amid mounting discrimination and Islamization, according to a new report. "Many believers leave the country since war raged 20 years ago," said Netherlands-based advocacy and aid group Kerk in Nood, or 'Church in Need', in the report obtained by Vatican Radio. There are just 440,000 Catholics left in the Balkan nation, half the prewar figure, the group said. The report came on the heels of talks between the cardinal of Sarajevo, Vinko Puljic, and European Council President Herman van Rompuy about difficulties faced by Bosnia's Christians. MOSQUES BUILT Puljic reportedly complained that while dozens...

    Political Correctness: The acquittal, on hate-speech charges, of the Dutch politician who spoke the truth about Islamofascism is a victory for freedom and free speech. The truth may yet keep us free. Somewhere Voltaire is smiling, for he would have defended to the death the Dutch politician's right to speak his mind about militant Islam and immigration and the threats he felt both posed to his country and democracy at large. Geert Wilders is a leader in the Dutch Freedom Party who has been a thorn in the side of politically correct Europeans cowered by their increasing Muslim populations into...

    An organized effort is underway worldwide orchestrated by a powerful Islamic political body to criminalize speech that "offends" Muslims. As much as that may sound like some fantastic conspiracy theory, these Muslim leaders broadcast their group's every move on their website—yet America's ruling elites refuse to listen. The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) is the second largest inter-governmental organization after the United Nations representing 57 member states which seek to criminalize speech that violates the archaic tenets of Sharia law. The OIC is comprised of the kings and heads of state of all Islamic countries numbering its membership at...

    For years, the Western world has listened aghast to stories out of Iran, Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern nations of citizens being imprisoned or executed for questioning or offending Islam. Even the most seemingly minor infractions elicit draconian punishments. Late last year, two Afghan journalists were sentenced to prison for blasphemy because they translated the Koran into a Farsi dialect that Afghans can read. In Jordan, a poet was arrested for incorporating Koranic verses into his work. And last week, an Egyptian court banned a magazine for running a similar poem.

    WASHINGTON — Republican Sen. Jon Kyl is hosting a film screening at the Capitol building on Thursday for a far-right Dutch lawmaker who claims that Islam inspires terrorism. Kyl is sponsoring the event for Geert Wilders, who was denied entry to London earlier this month because British authorities said he posed a threat to public order. Wilders’ 15-minute film juxtaposes verses from the Quran with images of violence by Muslims. Wilders has called the Quran a "fascist book" and said it should be banned. Kyl agreed to facilitate the event because "all too often, people who have the courage to...

    The flamboyant Dutch politician Geert Wilders has sparked a worldwide debate over free speech after being banned in Britain. But after his film was shown in New York, it became clear that Wilders makes for a strange kind of First Amendment martyr. It's the nature of free speech laws that the times we must defend them most forcefully are the times they are tested by the most extreme forms of speech. Yesterday’s visit to New York by Dutch MP Geert Wilders, the maker of the controversial anti-Islam film Fitna, belongs in that category. After sitting through the film, I can...

    Senator John Kyl (R-AZ) is coming under pressure from stealth jihad groups and their allies and dupes for his plan to host a showing of the film Fitna in The Capitol. Please contact Senator Kyl and declare your support for his courageous decision to show this honest and accurate but politically incorrect film. He needs expressions of support more than ever today!

    It is hard to understand this deal,” said Richard Holbrooke, President Obama’s special envoy. And, if the special envoy of the so-called smartest and most impressive administration in living memory can’t understand it, what chance do the rest of us have? Nevertheless, let’s try. In the Swat Valley, where a young Winston Churchill once served with the Malakand Field Force battling Muslim insurgents, his successors have concluded the game isn’t worth the candle. In return for a temporary ceasefire, the Pakistani government agreed to let the local franchise of the Taliban impose its industrial strength version of sharia across the...

            The Left is only too happy to suppress free speech. It doesn’t know what it’s getting itself into. One thing in particular struck me last week when I was in London for the showing of Geert Wilders’ Fitna in the House of Lords. Well, apart from the fact that Mr. Wilders was banned from entering the country.It was the press’ uniform designation of the Dutch politician as “right-wing” or even “extreme right-wing”.What precisely has Geert Wilders done or said that makes him deserving of this epithet? For make no mistake: whereas “left-wing” is considered an accolade and smacks...

    England produced the Bill of Rights in 1689 when a man from the Netherlands, William of Orange, was invited to become King William III of England. King William III gave an oath to limit his own powers and to defend the rule of law. England gave the world Habeus Corpus and the rights of the common man. England has thrown all that out of the window. This past week Great Britain has surrendered to Dhimmitude. When they banned Geert Wilders from their country, it wasn't because of what Wilders may have said or done, but they were afraid of the...

    Britain has just witnessed the spectacle of a duly elected parliamentarian from another EU country, Geert Wilders of the Netherlands, being denied entry to the country because he constituted "a threat to public policy." Wilders, after being detained briefly at Heathrow, was sent back to Holland -- where he has further legal troubles. Three weeks earlier, a Dutch appeals court had ordered prosecutors to begin criminal proceedings against Wilders for "inciting hatred and discrimination" and "insulting Muslim worshippers" through his public statements and his 2008 film, Fitna.

    It has come to this: If you are an Islamic radical, trained to carry out terrorist atrocities in al-Qaeda’s jihad against the United Kingdom, the British will welcome you with open arms. Not content with that, Great Britain will lobby insistently for your release from custody so that you may freely roam British streets—and the halls of Westminster. If, by contrast, you are a duly elected representative in the democratic government of a country to which England is bound in the European Union, and you speak about the undeniable—though mulishly denied—nexus between Islamic doctrine and jihadist terror, Great Britain will...

    The government has come under fire after banning a Dutch MP from entering the UK over anti-Islamic remarks. Former Conservative cabinet minister Michael Portillo said by turning away Geert Wilders, ministers had made a "populist twit and bigot" world famous. The Freedom Party MP had been invited to a House of Lords screening of his film, linking the Koran to terrorism.
