    ARTICLE SNIPPET: "( – A United Nations committee has passed a controversial “defamation of religions” draft resolution but, amid freedom of expression concerns, the measure looks set to get less support when it comes to a final vote next month, than in previous years." ARTICLE SNPPEPT: "‘Wrongly associated with terrorism’ This year the 57-nation Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) has the support of two non-Muslim allies – Venezuela and Belarus – in co-sponsoring the resolution. Although the OIC says the campaign is aimed at protecting all faiths, once again only Islam is cited by name."

    It is increasingly hard to draw a line between the agendas of the violent and non-violent -- Who says that Islamists can't learn a trick or two from the West when they have to? Take a glance at the glossy brochure of Islam Expo - billed as Europe's “biggest Islamic cultural festival” - which ended at Olympia yesterday. You could be forgiven for thinking that you were looking at the catalogue for the forthcoming Boden sale that comes to the venerable London exhibition centre in a few weeks' time. Visitors to Islam Expo would have witnessed such innocent activities as...

Both men were high-ranking members of terrorist groups arrayed against Israel. Coincidence? A powerful blast went off in the house of a senior Islamic Jihad activist Friday, killing him, his wife and daughter, along with three neighbors, medics and an Islamic Jihad spokesman said. Islamic Jihad claimed Israeli warplanes struck the home of Ayman Atallah Fayed. Israel denied it had launched any airstrike in the Bureij refugee camp in central Gaza where Fayed lived....

    The Racial and Religious Hatred Bill: A Milestone on Britain’s Road to DhimmitudeThe House of Lords is clashing with Tony Blair’s Labour government over its proposed Racial and Religious Hatred Bill. This is an Orwellian piece of legislation. Its real purpose of preventing any meaningful discussion of Islam. If passed it would enable authorities to charge people with “inciting religious hatred” even if they speak or write the truth about the Kuran, the hadith, the historical practice of jihad, or the long-term aspirations of the Muslim diaspora in the West. The proposed measure has been denounced by human rights groups...

    I'm in the middle of an argument with some friends who, though intelligent and well educated, have an unfortunate tendency to equivocate and play moral relativism games. I have stated that Islam is inherently incompatable with secular government, especially a constitutional republic such as ours. I have stated that the Koran, Hadith, and Sharia contain within them a great many explicit and inarguable commandments to ill-treat members of other creeds, women, and apostates from Islam. I have stated that Islam is by its very nature a blueprint and commandment for the creation (by force and subversion) of Islamic theocratic governments,...
