Shostakovich, in his memoirs (whose authenticity some have disputed), describes a minister in the Soviet Union praising a great Soviet cultural event, such as (says Shostakovich) the closing of a theater. Not very long ago, the medical director of the hospital in which I used to work sent an e-mail ...Read More...

Simon Jenkins turns out to be -- I'm not surprised -- a Defender of the Faith. It's not Islam. It's not "religious." It's a "cultural" response, and it really has to do with the Middle East. No mention of Qur'anic texts, and how they are received. No mention of the Hadith, or of exactly what Muhammad ...Read More...

Where are the fatwas, from all those clerics able to issue them in France, in Europe, in the Middle East, all over the world -- and there are tens of thousands of them -- condemning the attack in Paris, and declaring that the use of violence to shut off criticism or even mockery of any aspect of Islam ...Read More...

Watch, as Maajid Nawaz, manages, in his very first words on CNN last night, to call for "solidarity" by which he means "solidarity" of non-Muslims with Muslims, in this time of their -- the Muslims' -- vulnerability, and possible subjection to suspicion or hatred or attacks. And then, in his pro-forma ...Read More...

In 2004, I wrote a book that was published only in French, La Perfidie de l’Histoire,  It was a scholarly book, but I had a basic political objective: to warn about the impact of mass Muslim immigration into France and western Europe. My publisher, Olivier Véron, took me around to some editors of French ...Read More...

So many Berbers have been killed by Arabs, forcibly islamized by Arabs, forcibly arabized after they had been islamized, all over the Maghreb. Why shouldn't it happen -- it has already happened, over time, in many places in the country -- in Libya. "Islam--The Arab National Religion" is a book, that ...Read More...

They did not enter, and simply spray the room with gunfire, as the BBC appears even now to think. They separated the men from the women. And then they called out, from a list, those they wished to kill, and shot them, as their names were called out and they acknowledged who they were, in the head. That's ...Read More...

Watch, and listen, here. How quickly Germany was transformed. With what alacrity, scarcely packing their bags, did Siegfried Arno and Trude Berliner and so many others have to leave. Others stayed -- many could not get out -- and were murdered. Oh, it could happen again, with other ferocities coming ...Read More...

Why not post, on-line and possibly in newspaers, a complete listing of Muslim attacks, and Muslim plans or attemts to attack that may have been thwarted, in the Western world, or perhaps across the entire non-Muslim world?

He does not come out straightforwardlly against Islam tout court, Islam of Qur'an and Sunnah. He comes out against "islamisme," and "djihadisme" and "Islam politique."
