What Hamas has been asked to do is merely utter some words that will satisfy, in the most obviously unsatisfactory manner, the minimum demands of those who see nothing wrong with what is nothing more than the payment of Jizyah. Why are American and European Infidel payments to the local Arabs renamed, ...Read More...

If this "honeypot doctrine" is working --that is, the notion that terrorists everywhere will flock to Iraq where they will simply present themselves more easily to be killed -- then apparently word has not gotten out to those Muslims attacking Christians in the Moluccas and southern Philippines ...Read More...

"Security services identify 700 potential al-Qa'ida terrorists at large in Britain," from the Independent.
The actual figures will rise and rise and rise, for two reasons.
1) the ability, so often noted here, of recruiters to the military form of Jihad having all the texts on their side. ...Read More...

"[Sami Al-Arian's] three oldest children are adults and are expected to stay in the United States."
Those who obtained permission to remain in this country through fraud, or through the fraud of their relatives, should be stripped of their citizenship. The "fraud" is that of ...Read More...

Those who read this story in The Bandar Beacon (Washington Post) with care will note how revealing it is. For this article tells us a great deal about the fatuity, the waste, and the danger unfairly imposed on American soldiers and Marines, by an Administration both too obstinate (in sticking ...Read More...

Without Arab customers, brothels from Bangkok and Bombay, and of course maisons de passe of every kind in Europe,, and the high-end call-girl trade (hotel calls only), on several continents, could collapse.
You can sit right on the water, at a restaurant or café, in Porto Banus, just outside ...Read More...

The annual meeting of the James Joyce Underappreciated Society will this year be held at 7 Eccles Street, Dublin, on a date to be decided. Under no circumstances, however, will the date chosen turn out to be June 16, for all the obviously obvious reasons. We've had quite enough, thank you, of Bloomsday ...Read More...

Kuwait, Qatar and other sheiklets, and the Other Big Bad Wolf of the region, Saudi Arabia, are less likely to scream in feigned outrage over an attack on Iran if it takes place while large-scale Sunni-Shi'a hostilities are taking place. And if those hostilities should include signs of Iranian intervention ...Read More...

"At Riyadh restaurants, all-male parties enter through a "singles" door and sit where they please. Mixed groups must use the "family" door and be seated either in a separate room or behind screens. But the men and women have to be married or closely related or they risk running ...Read More...

In France, Muslim students refuse to study World War II, the Resistance, and the murder of Europe's Jews. They disrupt classes, and refuse to read, those writers -- Voltaire among them -- whom they think, or have been told to think, were "anti-Muslim." Their refusal to follow the syllabus ...Read More...

On NPR I just heard the mellifluous Robert Siegel -- so mellifluous that he punches above his weight, and one is disinclined to pluck out his idiocies because he is well-spoken -- describe a friend of his who had had relatives, or his own friends, die in the World Trade Center Attacks. That friend, ...Read More...

These generals need to be divided into two groups. There is in one camp, possibly all by himself, the foolish "realist" General Zinni. He is, along with Powell's aide Lawrence Wilkerson, a closet or not-so-closet appeaser of Islam, and just as Wilkerson has claimed that we cannot now "leave" ...Read More...

Bush is deeply, truly, madly stupid. But so are many in the Administration. The generals who attack his policy in Iraq -- for all the wrong reasons. The generals who support his policy in Iraq -- for all the wrong reasons. The assorted tongue-tied Democrats who are time-servingly ...Read More...

I heard on the radio today a certain Joseph Cirincione, described as director of nonproliferation studies at the Carnegie Institute. He was counseling, for all sorts of transparently absurd regions, that the American government refrain from attacking Iran. His reason? It seemed to consist of a number ...Read More...

The refusal to discuss Jihad, and the varied instruments that are employed to further Jihad, has led to the use of the phrase "war on terror" which diverts attention from all the other instruments -- oil revenues, Da'wa unchecked world-wide, demographic conquest within the Lands of the Infidels ...Read More...

The polypragmonic impulse, the result of all the most unattractive, and some of the attractive ones as well, of the American character, and of our rulers who do not take ideologies seriously because they fail to recognize that they, too, have an ideology --- that of Economic Growth, and Enlarging the ...Read More...

According to the Bandar Beacon, the admin is contemplating a strike against Iran.
If the Bush Administration allows itself to peter out without having dealt with Iran -- which always was, and remains, the chief military threat to Infidels among Muslim states --- the fiasco of its diversion into ...Read More...
