Christchurch Terror

It is important to try to understand the mass murder in Christchurch, but it is just too early to make any sound or meaningful assessment. Despite the manifesto, we do not know enough about Tarrant’s background and thoughts, and we know nothing about any of the others who may have been involved. That hasn’t stopped …

Saudi Arabia to Permit Churches

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad has agreed to allow Christians to build churches in Saudi Arabia. If this is accurate, it is a remarkable breakthrough. Muhammad said that no religions other than Islam should be permitted on the Arabian peninsula. There will be strong resistance from Islamic leaders to any suggestion Christians should be allowed to …

Orlando Shooter Was Gay

Lots of assumptions were made following the Orldando shooting. One assumption everyone seems to have made was that the murders were, at least in part, motivated by homophobia. The reason for this was that the shooting took place at a well-known gay nightclub. But there is no evidence that the shooter was anti-gay. None. His …

Horror and Hypocrisy Over Paris Attacks

There are multiple posts floating around Facebook about the Paris attacks. Some of these make two disturbing claims: Firstly, that the attacks had nothing to do with the fact that the perpetrators were muslim. That, they claim, is beside the point. What matters is simply that they were a bunch of arseholes. Secondly, that ordinary …

Values Of The IDF

Last November Herbert London wrote an article about Israel and just war theory. It is worth reading in full; it perfectly summarises the difference in the philosophies of Israel and its enemies. A few paragraphs: There were even times when the Israeli soldiers put their own lives at risk to avoid killing an innocent person. …

Egypt’s President – Death Is Our Goal

Great. Egypt’s Constitution should be based on the Koran and Sharia law, presidential candidate from the Muslim Brotherhood Islamist movement Mohamed Morsi said. “The Koran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader, jihad is our path and death in the name of Allah is our goal,” Morsi said in his election speech before Cairo …

And Gallantly She Ran Away

Lady Gaga has cancelled her scheduled concert in Indonesia after threats and protests. All very courageously provocative when it comes to offending the Salvation Army or the local Methodist ladies guild. They are not likely to chop your head off or burn your house down. Not so courageous about being ‘transgressive’ in a place where courage might really be needed.

Not Such A Happy Christmas

I would have thought the primary motivation for becoming a journalist was to make the world a better place by helping people to know the truth. So it is a constant source of dismay that so many journalists and media outlets decline to be truthful, either by not covering stories which don’t match their own viewpoint, or by …

Hitchens and Gingrich on the War on Terror

The best tribute to the despicable and admirable Christopher Hitchens is to read, hear and inwardly digest his words. This interview taped in 2002 for Uncommon Knowledge is brilliant. Two highly intelligent, eloquent men, with deep knowledge of history, talk about something that is still critically important. In the war on terror, who are our enemies?

Islamist Regimes = Skidmarks on the Undies of Life

‘Judgement day has come!’ ‘We will kill all the Jews.’ Some of the chants repeated at a rally in Cairo. It is simply nonsense to suggest, as some have done, that Muslims hate Jews because of Israel. Muslims have conducted campaigns of extermination against Jewish populations since Islam began. The mufti of Jerusalem looked forward to …

Blood Sandwiches

From the invaluable MEMRI. With this sort of filth being taught publicly in Islamic countries, is it any wonder children grow up hating the Jews?

Howard on Terorism and Our Response Over the Last Ten Years

I think John Howard is a little too enthusiastic about Indonesia, where there is still a troubling level of Islamic violence against minority religious groups, and about the so-called Arab Spring. There is reasonable concern that movements interpreted by the West as movements for democratic reform in Arab nations will only be democratic until Wahhabist governments are installed. Democracy is antithetic …

Geert Wilder’s Speech in Berlin

I don’t usually repost entire articles from other sites, but Geert Wilders speech in Berlin yesterday (Saturday) touches on so many things of importance to Australia – bureaucracy, multi-culturalism, loss of national identity, democracy and hope – that it is worth reading in full. Via PI News.  The Threat of Europeanization and the Need to Defend the …

The Episcopal Church – Casting Swine Before Pearls

Reason number 12934618 to get the heck out of the Epsicopal church, if not the entire gluey mess that is worldwide Anglicanism. Episcopalians will mark the 10th anniversary of 9/11 with a three day memorial including readings from the Koran. Robert Spencer has selected some verses which might be appropriate: Qur’an 98:4-6: “Nor did the …
