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.

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.

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?

A Darn Good Question

Why is the world silent on the constant terrorist attacks on Israel? From the Chicago Tribune, by Ron Prosor, Israel’s Permanent Envoy to the UN: Silence. Just silence from the U.N. Silence from Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. And silence from major media outlets throughout the world. Imagine for just a moment if this were happening …

Pornography and Terrorism

Jennifer S Bryson notes the high proportion of captured terrorists who have had large amounts of pornography in their possession. Pornography makes women and men masturbation aids. The actors cease to be human. Their only purpose is to provide physical stimulation. If they don’t do their job, they disappear – the page is turned, the next …

81% of US Mosques Promote Jihad

And no, that’s not jihad in the sense of the inner struggle against sin and weakness. It means the use of violence to achieve the impostion of sharia law and the establishment of a caliphate. “The Soldier’s Prayer,” written in 1912 by Turkish nationalist poet Ziya Gokalp: The minarets are our bayonets, the domes our …

US Department of Justice statistics show that although they constitute only 1% of America’s population, Muslims have been responsible for 186 of 228 terror cases investigated since 9/11. The Tamil Tigers and Columbian FARC are next with 32 cases between them. And, no, of course we shouldn’t blame all Muslims for this. And we don’t. …

Why There’s No Fondling at Israeli Airports

Israel’s Top Ten Airport Security Technologies The technologies are interesting and certainly work.

Have an Nice Day, and Naked Pictures at the Airport

I remember seeing a guy a guy who had been asked to leave several supermarkets interviewed on TV. He objected to being told ‘Have a nice day’ by checkout operators. Fair enough. It is a silly, empty phrase. But he responded by abusing the employees. These were mostly teenage girls in their first jobs, who …

Sorry, Julie, I don’t Agree

I like Julie Bishop. She has been a loyal and hard working deputy leader of the Liberal Party under three different leaders. It is not often I disagree with her. But she said today that she thought it was important that Australia support India’s hosting of the Commonwealth Games. No. It’s not. Or at least, …
