I don't know what the to-be-published-posthumously Vie de Mahomet, written and illustrated by the murdered cartoonists of Charlie-Hebdo, will show from the life of Muhammad. Will we have depicted little Aisha, first espied by Muhammad when she was six, and then married to him when she was nine? Will ...Read More...

Robert Blitt writes in USA Today: Many have taken false comfort in blaming the cold-blooded attack of Charlie Hebdo on the fanatical action of a small minority of Muslims.

Mayor Aboutaleb's good -- just a little too good -- press for his "fuck off" to Musliims who don't like it in the Netherlands. Good can come of this, and evil. The good is obvious: Muslims are not wanted, have earned distrust and dislike. That has happened everywhere, even in such countries as the ...Read More...

Angela Merkel apparently thinks that just because, out of criminal negligence, many Turks, and then other Muslims, were allowed to come and settle within Germany in the last few decades, this means that Muslims are, or can be, part of the fabric of Germany society.
