Enough Guilt To Share

o one is saying that everyone in Muslim countries is directly responsible for the actions of others. What we are saying is that it is not only conceivable that we are holding you responsible for your own actions, we are doing so. Remember the words of a wise man: All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. There are many good Muslims. Why aren't they doing anything? Public condemnation of groups like al Qaeda and a boycott of the hajj and a refusal to attend mosques where imams preach that all non-Muslims are...

It's All In The Details, Dear

ou are probably a decent Muslim—I don't know how old you are. But I get the impression that you've grown up in the west. So far your entire life experience and consequently your understanding of what islam is about has been forged in an era when Islam was probably at its lowest ebb in its entire 1400 year history. The caliphate was abolished back in the 1920's and for many years Islamic countries were constrained by western colonial control. Furthermore, globalization as we now know it, didn't exist. Which means that Muslims didn't have access to the modern technologies, especially...


Standing Free In Liberty, Not Fear

n respose to a young voice naively complaining about the penetrating certainty that many Jihad Watch commentors convey in their assessment of today's political climate with regards to Islam, Jihad, and parsing the so-called moderate Muslim issue, here is a lean but strengthening response posted by a writer who calls herself Miss Anthrope: I personally recommend you listen to those of us who don't have a nefarious religious/political agenda. Who is that? Only you can decide for yourself who on this board is trying to sway opinion. I can tell you, as a non-religious person, that I don't fall into...


Painting A Simple Picture By Numbers

In painting a simple picture by numbers, we present this small but mocking piece by Hugh Fitzgerald: uslims feel "isolated." Muslims feel "unwanted." Muslims feel "unloved." That's why they do what they do in southern Thailand, and the southern Philippines. That's why they decaptiate Christian schoolgirls in Indonesia, attack Christan churches in Alexandria, or Baghdad, kill Hindus in Bangladesh and drive millions of them out, why the Taliban, those hyper-Muslims, forced Hindus in Afghanistan to wear yellow identifying robes, why they felt compelled to blow up the Bamiyan Buddhas, or destory churches in Gaza, or drive even "Palestinian" Christians out...


Love At This Point Is Information

To me from my liberal friendI haven't heard from you lately. Just seeing how everything is going. Thanks for dropping my rain suit off. I hope you and your family are doing well. Reply from meI don't feel like complaining and trying to scare people lately, so I haven't been sending out my 'xenophobic' materials (as my friend in California says). We're busy and life's good for the moment. I'm busy building the concrete bunker and stocking up on ammunition, so I don't have time to write much. The neighbors think it's a swimming pool, boy what a bunch of...
