Criticism of Islam Forces Teacher into Hiding

French teacher Robert Redeker, 52, wrote in the daily Le Figaro 10 days ago that Muhammad was "a merciless warlord, a looter, a mass-murderer of Jews and a polygamist," and called the Koran "a book of incredible violence." He also wrote:"Jesus is a master of love; Muhammad is a master of hatred," Mr. Redeker wrote, adding, "Whereas Judaism and Christianity are religions whose rites forsake violence and remove its legitimacy, Islam is a religion that, in its very sacred text, as much as in some of its everyday rites, exalts violence and hatred. Hatred and violence dwell in the... ... more

Terrifying Revelations About Ourselves

Those in the United States and in other Western nations who are urging dialogue with Iran are repeating the tragic mistakes of the 1930s that led to World War II.

Iraq Al-Qaeda Leader Recruiting Scientists For Unconventional Weapons, 'Whether Biological Or Dirty'

As debated as the war is now, the heated debate about the origins of our drive into Iraq would surely pale by comparison to the debate that would erupt - here and elsewhere, should we abandon Iraq to the likes of Abu Ayyub al-Masri, which would clearly be seen by Islamists everywhere - as an open invitation to attack with open abandon, the home of the paper tiger that ran out of Iraq.

Pope Benedict XVI condemns Islam's violence

Pope Benedict XVI condemns Islam's violence. He said, quoting Byzantine emperor Manuel II Paleologos, show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find "only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached". In a major lecture at Regensburg University, where he taught theology between 1969 to 1977, Benedict said Christianity is tightly linked to reason and contrasted this view with those who believe in spreading their faith by the sword.

9/11: Never Forget - Never Forgive (Reposted from 9/10)

We had better not forget 9/11 and the signal it sent. The enemy won't forget. For him, 9/11 was a continuation in a long war against America. He thinks he can wait us out. He thinks we're weak and will wilt before his demands in order to save our lives. He is betting everything he is right. Is he?

Movie Stars vs. Islamists - The Indonesian culture wars

Indonesia is a critical bellwether in the long war against Islamic extremism because it is the world's most populous Muslim country and has extremely porous borders, and in practice, it has been home to a relatively moderate form of Islam, which is now being challenged.
