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...

Of First And Lasting Impressions

S ISLAM A PEACEFUL religion, or as the Netherlands politician Geert Wilders suggests (which has him facing criminal charges in his home country), a malevolent, political ideology similar to, or worse than, Nazism? Of first and lasting impressions perhaps we should consider the following, shocking to politically-correct Infidels (non-Muslims), but common knowledge and acceptable to Muslims: 1. Muslims must instill terror into non-Muslims (Koran 8:12) as Mohammed said, "I've been made victorious through terror" (Bukhari 4:52:220). 2. Non-Muslims (Infidels) are sworn enemies (inveterate foes) of Muslims and Islam. (Koran 4:101) 3. Muslims' have the holy right, authority, and requirement to...


Obama's Mysterious Religious Convictions

onest minds want to know, and we have little to offer but a bit of light reporting by the Washington Post. Read it all. But in savoring the PR of the man who seems to feel peculiarly qualified to lead America in these treacherous times solely because he has smelled the stench of poverty in his own family, and by virtue of mixed race, can solve America's racial puzzle, I suggest we look closer at the man and not so much at the tailored suit he's wearing. Let's step back. I watched Obama's breathtaking speech at the '04 National Democratic...


Duty To One's Neighbor

hink of the words "Muslim community" and what do you see? A succession of veiled women walking silently behind their husbands? Bearded men gesticulating outside mosques? But there is another version of the Muslim community other than the radical one in the West. It is easy to dismiss Muslim parents as old-fashioned and traditional, but when the rest of the world is busy wondering how to respond to a culture of rampant disrespect, it is worth considering whether we can learn from Muslim values. Muslim children are more likely to be brought up in two-parent families rather than the single-parent...


A Muslim Reformer?

HERE'S NEWS THAT THE RATHER quiet "moderate" Muslims indeed have hope in their future. And imagine this: that hope is coming from France. Former Marseilles Mufti Soheib Bencheikh has announced that "Islam must be criticized, just as Christianity was [criticized] during the Enlightenment." He goes on to say that "Islam is a message for all humanity—therefore it is not the property of Muslims [alone]." Born in Saudi Arabia in 1961, Dr. Bencheikh believes that French-style secularism is a necessary precondition for the reform of Islam, and he calls on both Muslims and non-Muslims to participate in critiquing Islam, reinterpreting its...
