Historical Islamic Influence On West

ERHAPS RATHER THAN LOOKING BACK, as has become fashionable in our time, to all the “splendid gifts” the West supposedly received from Islam during the Middle Ages (“science”, "philosophy", "medicine", “algebra”, and if you read certain discredited Muslim apologists, practically everything civilized), our historical attention should focus instead on the barbarity that Muslims might have passed along to those Westerners who endured centuries of rule under Muslims: Slavs, Greeks, Italians, Spanish—perhaps that explains, for example, some of the brutality of the Conquistadores? It can hardly be a coincidence that they had only recently emerged out of a culture that had...

We Must Awaken!

here are children of light and there are children of darkness, and this has nothing to do with skin color, or even the content of one's character, as Martin Luther King once put it, for even character is measured against a specific set of values. And it is values we are discussing here. The gist of Western values versus the gist of Islamic values.

Taking Islam Seriously

LUE IN THE FACE already, we have stated this before, but it bears repeating until we all get it. Muslim groups from around the globe keep telling the West that we need to respect them and that the West today is arrogant and over-confident, and just not taking their Islamic threat as seriously as we should.

When the Russian Revolution broke out in 1917, as much as the West hated Communism, in a sense, we actually respected them....


Beginning A Prayer, Ending A Truce

I intend with every act of every day to exhibit this personal concern of mine. In the face of confrontation, I put no concern on my own background, nor that of others, of my own person, unequal to others. I accept the adjudication that excuses, lame or marathon perceptive, for not following through with this concern will not cover me. I expect my work to counter any effort to sabotage this concern wherever it...


Brigitte Gabriel At University Of Michigan

Dear Gabriel, AM GLAD TO REPORT to you that my presentation at the University of Michigan last night went without a glitch. Credit goes to the alertness of the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, and local and university police. Highly visible were 8 police officers, a K9 team, a personal body guard and a variety of well positioned TV cameras from a Fox news crew for Bill O'Reilly as well as local TV station and university TV crews. The event organizers worked furiously to place heightening security after we were alerted on Sunday of a Muslim call going out...
