Hate Speech

Signs Of Denmark Weakening

HE JUNE 2 SUICIDE BOMBING outside the Danish embassy in Islamabad, which killed six people, has caused a dour bout of soul-searching in the land of Kierkegaard and Hamlet. More than ever, Danes are asking what price their country can afford to pay for its increasingly entrenched reputation as a forthright critic of Islam. It all began with the celebrated 2005 publication of 12 political cartoons cartoons under the rubric "Muhammad's face" in the daily Jyllands-Posten. The images were meant as a bold assertion of free speech, but were seen by many Muslims as blaspheming Muhammad. The cartoons' republication throughout...

Sudden Jihad Syndrome Strikes Dentist

our years, perhaps out in little more than one year. That's the prognosis for the Paki-bred UK dentist who decided to take up arms against the British to avenge his Muslim brothers of the Taliban. He claimed he was going to visit his family for the Islamic festival of Eid. Sohail Qureshi is the first to be convicted under new legislation targeting the preparation of terrorist acts.

Investigations revealed Qureshi offered to help the war effort in Pakistan and Afghanistan. An intercept communication...


Defining Hatred By Manifest Destiny

ere we go again, with this damnable moral equivalency argument. We are living in the year 2007, but some people, both the aggressors and their apologists just love to pacify us all with references to the deep past when it is the actions of the aggressors in today's world that is at issue.

In...


War Theories & Wet Nurses

In 1624, due to a wide variety of historical factors that are no longer present, rulers of a population were far more able to retain a chokehold on that population.

Ugliness By Peaceniks, Again

ATE SPEECH OR FREE expression of ideas? Depends on which goal line you are defending. As we know here at the Project, both teams, each with their funny-looking uniforms and logos can dip rich and rude into the smear jar, using all sorts of unsportsmanlike conduct to further their objectives. But the Left seems especially gifted in this area, although admittedly the Right often comes off far too smug in resting on its amnesiac laurels for the common man to stomach. So here we go again... Violence erupted at a Michigan law school last week when protestors tried to block...
