Culture Shock In Scotland

ayhem, fooking bloody mayhem, perniciously instigated "once again" by Muslims (or Asians, as the British press likes to straddle it), and while it may have just been a pothole in the road of expanding documentation in the clash between the West and those more fiercely devoted followers of Mohammed, the debate over just what is to be done to stabilize these rising concerns is still rather muted, and nearly always neatly packaged in broad but rather simplistic terms. After all goes the party line, it was merely one white teenager who lost his life, however gruesome the attack. But let's...

Fjordman: The Eurabia Code, Section 3

N MARCH 2006, the two-day plenary session of the Euro-Mediterranean Parliamentary Assembly, held in Brussels approved a resolution which "condemned the offence" caused by the Danish cartoons of the prophet Muhammad as well "as the violence which their publication provoked." These MEPs and national MPs from the EU and Arab countries also urged governments to "ensure respect for religious beliefs and to encourage the values of tolerance, freedom and multiculturalism." During the parliamentary assembly, Egyptian parliament speaker Ahmed Sorour insisted that the cartoons published in Denmark and other recent events showed the existence of a "cultural deficit." Jordanian MP Hashem...


Fjordman: The Eurabia Code, Section 1

decided to write this essay after a comment from a journalist, not a Leftist by my country's standards, who dismissed Eurabia as merely a conspiracy theory, one on a par with The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. I do not disagree with the fact that conspiracy theories exist, nor that they can be dangerous. After all, the Protocols and the Dolchstosslegende, or "stab in the back myth"—the idea that Germany didn't lose WW1 but was betrayed by Socialists, intellectuals and Jews—helped pave the way for Adolf Hitler and the Nazis before WW2. However, what puzzles me is that it...


Allies In Arms, Masked, And Anonymous

OR THOSE OF YOU, ESPECIALLY ON THE LEFT who still deny that Islam is the Arab engine for global imperialism despite all evidence to the contrary, we offer the prospect that the best support for this claim comes through the words of , leader of the terrorist group Hezbullah, when the declared 'there is no Persian culture, only an Arab one'. And we find this at Amil Imani's terrific beacon of freedom with the contribution of a comment by Dianor: All of those under the general umbrella of the worldwide leftist movement including Islam have certain things in common.

Breaking the Numbers Down

More troublesome data on the multiculturalist front, Islamo-style. OST US MUSLIMS (65%) are first-generation immigrants. But more than a third (35%) were born in the United States. One-fifth (21%) of the native-born (or 7% of all Muslims in this country) are second generation, with one or both parents having been born outside of the U.S. The nearly two-thirds who were born outside of the United States come from at least 68 different nations, with no single nation accounting for more than 12% of the immigrants. More than a third (37%) of all foreign-born Muslim Americans arrived from the Arab region,...
