Islamists Protest Indonesia Court's Ruling to Close Doors to Playboy Trial

During the trial of the editor-in-chief of Playboy in Indonesia, the court ordered the doors to be closed. This order inflamed Islamists apparently more than having a magazine with a scantily clad (there was no nudity in Playboy Indonesia) woman on an extra-long magazine page. But follow along with me, if you will, and if you do I'm hoping you can explain something to me. Indecency is against the law in Indonesia. That is the charge Erwin Arnada faces and could serve up to 32 months in prison if found guilty. Since Playboy Indonesia did not have nude photographs but... ... more

Muslims "Demand" Right To Worship At Cordoba

Yeah, that's right, "demand"! (h/t Gateway Pundit): Spanish Muslims have written to the Vatican to demand the right to worship at Cordoba Cathedral. Spain's Islamic Board wrote to Pope Benedict XVI on Tuesday, calling on him to grant them permission to worship in the cathedral, parts of which were built as a mosque during Spain's period of Islamic rule. The group said in their letter: "What we wanted was not to take over that holy place, but to create in it, together with you and other faiths, an ecumenical space unique in the world which would have been of great... ... more

Early Signs Washington And London May Be Waking Up To Iran's War Against Us

Michael Ledeen writes at Faster Please that both Washington and London are grudgingly coming to accept the fact that Iran is waging war against us in Afghanistan and Iraq - something conservative bloggers have been screaming about for well over a year. According to Ladeen:Until recently, Coughlin [reporter for the Telegraph] notes, "NATO commanders have appeared reluctant to even discuss the possibility that the Iranians might have their own agenda in upsetting coalition attempts to establish an effective government." And this reluctance was obviously peculiar to anyone who knew anything about Iran's real activities in the region. Commanders in Iraq... ... more

U.S. Commanders In Iraq Set for 'Surge' In Forces?

Dan Riehl posts that US commanders on the ground in Iraq, including General Casey, are apparently prepared to go with a "surg"e in forces as part of any new strategy. The article Dan links to points out that some members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff remain skeptical of a surge, and are unconvinced that it will yield more positive results than other recent military operations to secure Baghdad or Iraq. So, more troops and "surge" on, or not? We've never had enough troops in Iraq and we've never seriously engaged the enemy - the real enemy - Iran, Syria,... ... more

Tsunami Disaster Aid Money Used To Enforce Sharia Law

Western officials, and as Robert Spencer points out - Colin Powell included, told us that the tsunami relief was going to help Muslims and win over Muslim hearts and minds to be more tolerant and peaceful. News flash: It didn't work. Militant Islamists have since imposed sharia law in Aceh and have cornered Indonesian government funds to organise a moral vigilante force that harasses women and stages frequent displays of humiliation and state-sanctioned violence. Last time I checked, Iran and Syria are chock-full of militant Islamists, yet Spector, Kerry, Dodd, Nelson, and yes - Powell, think we should have a... ... more

CAIR Shuts Down Blog

The Tampa, Fla., office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Tampa) is calling on an Internet web hosting company in that state to drop a hate site that supports calls to "kill all Muslim kids." While I certainly believe that it is wrong to support the killing of Muslim children, or any non-combatant, CAIR's complaint and action is a severe case of the pot calling the kettle black. As Rusty notes, this is very ironic since this is the same CAIR which has no problem supporting the genocidal maniacs of Hamas [(see "The Religion of Peace (and child abuse)"]. We... ... more

Censorship, Violence, Hate, And Persecution - In The Name of Islam

"In the West, the advent of printing meant enormous progress in terms of freedom of thought. Printing made possible the gradual spread of knowledge and the questioning of the established order. Technology and freedom seem to have marched hand in hand. "But in our [Muslim] societies, the opposite seems to have happened.

On 'Realists' Getting Real On Iran

Realism is an academic theory that holds that nations should, and typically do, conduct foreign policy with greater regard for their interests than their values. But realism is also an ordinary word that tells us that good sense and experience are better practical guides to action than theory. In spite of the fact that "the U.S. is what chiefly stands in the way of Iran's desire to dominate Iraq through the likes of Muqtada al-Sadr, whose Mahdi Army is responsible for some of the worst sectarian violence," so-called realists say that engaging Tehran is a matter of necessity and ought... ... more
