Saudi Spring waits to arrive

The decades-old winter of frozen and fossilized structures and systems in the Arab world are thawing. The term exceptionalism in the Arab context harks back to Samuel Huntington’s thesis that envisages the progression of democracy in waves. The third wave was frozen after its initial advances in the 1970s. It never washed the shores of … Continue reading

Sharia is Islam

Belgium is on its way to becoming a totalitarian state: The graffiti on a building in Belgium says it all: “Welcome to ‘Belgistan.” In fact, some are now calling it the Muslim capital of Europe… The Christian Broadcasting Network CBN About Related articles VIDEO: The World under Muslim Sharia Law ( Refuting Apologetics … Continue reading

Islamization of the Workplace

(Atlas Shrugs) Wegman’s has put up a sign asking customers buying pork or alcohol not to use a particular checkout line when a Muslim teenager is on duty as the cashier. More islamization of the marketplace. This is a pattern. If you dont want to handle meat that’s not halal, work for a Muslim butcher. … Continue reading

Prominent Obama supporters endorse the invasion of Israel.

The Radical Left Unites With Iran in March on Jerusalem (Posted by Mark Tapson) In the wake of the innocuous-sounding “Arab Spring” that has brought openly Jew-hating Islamists to power in the Middle East, Israel’s enemies everywhere smell blood. Twice last year her borders were breached by mobs seeking violent confrontation, which they achieved as … Continue reading

The New Anti-Semitism

Why does the international community hate Israel so much? Not long ago, the Economist ran an unsigned editorial called the “Auschwitz Complex.” The unnamed author blamed serial Middle East tensions on both Israel’s unwarranted sense of victimhood, accrued from the Holocaust, and its unwillingness to  “to give up its empire.” As far as Israel’s paranoid … Continue reading

Islams Connection to Jerusalem vs. Israels

(a7) Despite 1,300 years of Muslim Arab rule, Jerusalem was never the capital of an Arab entity. Oddly, the PLO’s National Covenant, written in 1964, never mentioned Jerusalem. Only after Israel regained control of the entire city did the PLO “update” its Covenant to include Jerusalem. Overall, the role of Jerusalem in Islam is best … Continue reading

Iran and Hamas: Genocidal Fellow Travelers

In the spring of 1948, Arab Muslim armies and militias invaded the Jewish State in order to destroy it.

The Global March to Jerusalem is being billed as a peaceful march, but … Continue reading

Jail may await Afghan women fleeing abuse and rape: HRW

Reuters – For Afghan women, the act of fleeing domestic abuse, forced prostitution or even being stabbed repeatedly with a screwdriver by an abusive husband, may land them in jail while their abusers walk free, Human Rights Watch said. Running away is considered a “moral crime” for women in Afghanistan while some rape victims are … Continue reading

UNHRC Abuses Human Rights

Unsurprisingly, a United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) report has once again slammed Israel’s acts of self-defense. The recently released report ostensibly investigating the events that surrounded the interception of the Gaza-bound Mavi Marmara in May is a modern blood-libel, and another nail in the coffin of the council’s credibility. The full report is scheduled … Continue reading

A Real Palestinian Human Rights Nightmare

The notion that Israel is victimizing the Palestinians is one of the cardinal—perhaps the cardinal—paradigms of international politics since the 1967 Six-Day War. Not only the left, both in Israel and abroad, subscribes to it, but also a large part of the U.S. foreign policy establishment, and just about all of official Europe. It goes … Continue reading
