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 2

EDEA (the European Institute for Research on Mediterranean and Euro-Arab Cooperation), supported by the European Commission, is one of the key components of the Euro-Arab dialogue. On its own webpage, it states that: "The Euro-Arab Dialogue as a forum shared by the European Community and the League of Arab States arose out of a French initiative and was launched at the European Council in Copenhagen in December 1973, shortly after the "October War" and the oil embargo.

Attitude Adjusting On Sliding Scale Of Islam

HERE ARE THOSE WHO THINK the tide has turned on the question of militant Islam, moderate Muslims, and the algebra of just getting along. Some believe as a result of Jack Straw's recent admission of concern over Muslim women's use of veils to cover their faces in British society and PM Tony Blair's call for full discussion on the Muslim conflict with modernity has signalled a sea change in mood for free speech traditions long stymied by the political correctness crowd. Calling out for more common sense, these free speech advocates suggest that the rules of the game seem to...


While Whizzing Around The Horn of History One Fine Day

HILE WHIZZING AROUND THE HORN of history one fine day, we bowed to the enemy and accepted his version of events against the backdrop of our own. From Lorraine, France we read this: "Our stupid politicians try their best to find any self-deprecating "solution" on tap to deal with the shinola they created in Eurabia: massive Muslim immigration to give companies low-paid labours and whom numerous children are now "les arrogants" and behave like wolves in accordance with Islam." Last Sunday, I met an a gentle octogenarian in the figures exhibition in Luneville. He was retired and a really nice...


Scouts Honor: Afghanistan Is No Place For Americans

ET'S DROP THE PLUMB BOB HERE, talk some straight talk, and rid ourselves of mixed emotions on all this war effort hubris. Attempting to transform the wild west of Afghanistan is much too expensive, much too depleting, of Western resources—perhaps not as much as the fiasco in Iraq, but it is simply the same kind of misguided belief in the mutability of Muslim man that pays insufficient attention to the permanent hold of Islam, and what it means for the West. Resources are limited. Men of valor, war and peace material, morale. They have been squandered, in Afghanistan, as in...
