The West is almost as in love with improving the world, as the Muslim world is with conquering it. These two contradictory impulses, the missionary and the warrior, come together in the Clash of Civilizations. (Daniel Greenfield)
A warm-hearted humanitarian gesture. But what are the Australian authorities going to do to make sure that they aren’t importing jihadis and Islamic supremacists among these persecuted Hazaras? Probably nothing. And once Muslim countries are completely homogeneous, with all the Shias and Christians and Jews and Bahais and all other religious minorities safely in non-Muslim countries, who will protect them from the Muslims there who may wish to carry on the jihad in their new countries? And what will the sanctuary nations of the West do as they offer asylum to jihad’s victims and the jihadis, having driven out all the kuffar, focus their attention on those non-Muslim nations?
IF you needed proof that free speech in Australia is on the run, look at what happened when Dutch anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders came to town.
With 10 per cent of the vote in Holland, Wilders is a mainstream politician, leading the third largest political party in one of the most tolerant liberal democracies in the world. Yet in Australia he is treated like a pariah, denied a visa for months, and unable to secure a venue for his speaking tour in Perth.
Instead of a “welcome to country” before he spoke to audiences in Sydney and Melbourne last week, organisers had to read aloud a statement of Victoria’s racial and religious tolerant act.
As much as anything, this curious legal requirement adhered to by the Melbourne-based Q society which hosted Wilders, explains why Australians are open to his message of creeping Islamisation.
That and the enormous security needed to guard him from assassins 24-hours-a-day.
It is shameful that of all the Western democracies Geert Wilders has visited it turns out, Australia is the most repressive.
This is what they voted for. Now they’ve got it. Here again, we see Sharia looks essentially the same wherever it is implemented, contradicting the smooth lies of Islamic supremacists like Reza Aslan, who make a comfortable living telling the credulous kuffar that Sharia is so elastic as to have no content at all.–“Egypt moves to ban alcohol, belly dancing,”from the Daily Star, February 18 (thanks to JW)
Coptic activist, lawyer and president of the Egyptian Human Rights Union Naguib Gebrail says that this choice of a date violates ”human rights as concerns religious freedom.” Now why would a Sharia regime do that? Don’t they know that Sharia is benign, tolerant, and fully compatible with Western principles of human rights? Imam Rauf, call your office!

More “dialogue” from Muslims in Egypt reaching out to their brothers and sisters in Abrahamic faith: “Muslim Villagers in Egypt Attack Church,” from Morning Star News, February 17:
CAIRO, Egypt (Morning Star News) – Muslim villagers in Egypt’s Fayoum Province attacked a church this weekend – pelting four Christians with rocks, setting parts of the church building on fire and tearing down a cross atop the structure, witnesses said.

In many ways, the Arab Spring that Westerners thought would bring democracy to the Middle East has actually been the prelude to an Islamic revolution that seems set on sweeping away all opposition to the harshest of Islamist tenets – even at the expense of much of the culture that the Arab world has held dear for decades.
Among the latest victims of the new Islamist atmosphere in Egypt is the “first lady of Arabic song,” Umm Kulthum, who is regarded as the greatest female Arabic singer of the 20th century, or perhaps ever.

“You are a terrorist because you are a Muslim,” Elsayed said. “Well give them a run for their money. Make it worth it. Make this title worth it, and be good a Muslim.”–Dar al-Hijrah Imam Calls For Armed Jihad
This is no surprise, considering that Shaker Elsayed is imam of the Dar al Hijrah mosque, where Anwar al-Awlaki was once based. But this is an open call to violence by Muslims against non-Muslims in America. When it is heeded, those who were indifferent to his words will share the responsibility. –Video thanks to Pamela Geller.
Who are you gonna believe? Your lying eyes, or an internationally respected academic? Speaking of our universities being filled with mediocrities who owe their position and stature to the political popularity of their ideas, not to their scholarship, honesty, or competence, here’s another. This poorly written article from the Indian press says that Duke University emeritus professor Bruce Lawrence said that “Islamic [sic] has no connection with terrorism and the propaganda of the forces which are trying to link Islam with terrorism is baseless.”
