  1. Islam decrees that Christian churches or other places of non-Moslem worship may not be as high as their mosques so that mosques would always dominate the landscape.

    So in this instance, Moslems aimed to broadcast their call to prayer from the highest point of a Christian church tower, thus dominating it. This point should have been picked up on. Islamic aggression.

  3. Japan PM Shinzo Abe pledges $2.5bn in Middle East aid (BBC, Jan 17, 2015)

    “Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has pledged $2.5bn (£1.7bn) in non-military assistance to the Middle East. Mr Abe was speaking in Egypt at the start of his six-day tour of the region, which includes Jordan, Lebanon, Israel and the Palestinian territories. He pledged $200m (£130m) in non-military aid for countries fighting Islamic State, saying the world would suffer if terrorism spread. Japan relies on the Middle East for much of its crude oil imports.

    “It goes without saying that the stability of the Middle East is the foundation for peace and prosperity for the world, and of course for Japan,” Mr Abe said at a meeting of the Japan-Egypt Business Committee in Cairo. “Should we leave terrorism or weapons of mass destruction to spread in this region, the loss imparted upon the international community would be immeasurable,” he added. He said that Japan would provide infrastructure and humanitarian assistance to the region, including support for countries hosting refugees from Iraq and Syria…”

  8. Just the beginning – indeed. Duke’s reversal was hardly 180 degree turn of events. The statement issued by Duke specifically stated that they would still meet in the courtyard in front of the cathedral and then proceed to their normal prayer space. That normal space is in the cathedral’s basement. No other religious group would impose their presence in a confrontational position at the cathedral, once rejected. this is how muhammedans operate. They insist on bearing the victim profile when indeed they are the instigators and violators of societal norms.

    Late yesterday morning, I happened to catch Kirsten Powers on FoxNews (cable) discussing the controversial papal reaction to the Hebdo assassinations and the effect terrorism holds on contemporary society.

    Her pathetic moral equivalence (ignorance) was off the charts.

    I don’t have a transcript or video clip yet, but she stated she isn’t alarmed by the greater muslim population’s desire to reestablish the caliphate, suggesting Muslims remember Islam’s glory days in Al Andalus and there is nothing abnormal for any society to want to regain such a respected stature.

    Above is just a paraphrased rendition of what I saw…and worthy of locating a copy of video clip to address further.

    • You introduced me to Burak Bekdil. He’s got a gentle, devastating approach I enjoy. Abu Khaled Toameh, another one of Us – the Good Guys – is so abrasive sometimes I can’t finish his articles.

    • For those interested in a big story in the English anti-slavery story read the history of Raja Brooke, a British Officer who was wounded in the Sepoy Rebellion and was discharged. He sailed from India in a leaky yacht with one small cannon. He saw the aftermath of a slave raid on a native village in the Islands and set out to destroy the slave trade in the far east.
