Why the West Loves Lying to Itself About Islam

Muslim integration into Europe is going swimmingly, much like the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and the Arab Spring. It’s going like a house on fire, not to mention a bus, a lot of cars and two towers on fire—on the other side of the Atlantic. Whatever problems there are, as with the peace process and the spring process, are undoubtedly the fault of someone who isn’t a Muslim.

Peace Doesnt Exist. Neither do the Palestinians

We can solve the problem that five administrations have struggled with if we reevaluate our flawed assumptions about the world, the Palestinian Authority and the fictional people it represents.

Party of Trolls: How Race Dominates U.S. Politics

Poverty is complicated. So are jobs and wars. Race however is simple. There are bad people and there are good people. The oppressed and the oppressors. And that paradigm, that one talking point that they store up and unleash at every occasion is the sum total of their contribution to every debate under the sun.

The Odd Couple of Barak and Joe

The presidential and vice-presidential debates provided us with two snapshots of two different and yet very similar men. The Obama who showed up to debate Mitt Romney and the Biden who showed up to debate Paul Ryan were outwardly different types. One white and one black, one elderly and one middle-aged, one a veteran of the Senate and the other a political tyro rushed through the ranks on the promise of his electability.

The United States of Guilt

Exploiting guilt is much more effective than exploiting virtue.

The Future that Never Comes

The constant expansion and destructive acquisition of small innovative companies maintains the illusion that the latest digital horse is something special.

Towers of Twilight: Reflections on the Attacks of September 11th

New York City is used to tragedy. Terrible things happen here all the time. But New York cannot move on, neither can the country, because the murderers are still on the loose and what happened on September 11 was not an isolated incident, but part of a pattern of attacks taking place in a clash of civilizations. New York, the crossroads of civilizations, is a natural target for the attacks. New York is to the world what Mecca was to Arabia and the new Mohammeds are eager to do to it what Mohammed did to Mecca.

The End of the Alternative Media

The real reason that the Village Voice is dead is because the alternative media is dead and the alternative media is dead because there is nothing for it to be an alternative to. New Yorkers can just as easily read shrill rants about the NYPD in the Daily News, pretentious movie reviews for artsy films at The Onion and leftist denunciations of the War on Terror in the New York Times.

Wrong Side of the Street

The chain of events doesn't make much sense to the elites.

How Romney Can Win this Election

Even when all the facts are set out before them, people still need to believe. Optimism can give people the confidence to leap the buying hurdle. Optimistic people are more likely to buy. People are more likely to vote for someone who makes them feel better, rather than someone who makes them feel worse. Obama understood that in 2008, and he's still reasonably confident that this will work for him now.

The Values Economy

The economy decides if our bodies have a future. The values economy decides whether it will have a soul.

From Slavery to Freedom

The Exodus is not the story of the emergence of free men who were enslaved, but the slow painful process by which slaves became a nation of free men, a long troubled journey which has not yet ended

Ready for Hillary

Why vote for Hillary? Because Hillary wants you to vote for her.

A Bangladesh Grows in Brooklyn

Mohammed beheaded Mahuddin Mahmud making it a case of Mohammed on Mohammed violence.

The End of the World

When bogus science warns us of an apocalypse if we don't follow the tenets of their ideology, then how much difference is there anyway?

Kerry and the Peace Idiots Ride Again

Few figures in American political life have been as consistently wrong as often as John Kerry. The former Senator bet on every Communist leader...

The End of the American Presidency

The American presidency came to an end on October 15, 1992 during a Town Hall debate between Bush I, Ross Perot and Bill Clinton. The stage of the Town Hall seemed more like a place for Phil Donahue or Sally Jesse Raphael to strut around, biting their lips, and dragging out tawdry tales for audience applause, than for three presidential candidates to discuss the future of the country.

No Such Thing as a Bloodless Victory

There are no bloodless victories, but we can choose whether to bleed our enemy or to bleed our hearts. And when our hearts bleed for the enemy, than the blood sooner or later stops being a metaphor and becomes a sticky dark red liquid on the boots of the brave Afghan people, the brave Iraqi people, the brave Libyan people or the brave Syrian people and all the other brave peoples we will set out to save from the hells they make for themselves.

A September Evening

You can catch glimpses of a city reeling from the incomprehensible.

Egypt is Where History Goes to Die

The last election didn't fix Egypt. There's no reason to believe that another one will.

Tears Don’t Protect Against Murder

Tears don't protect against murder. They don't stop killers from killing. They don't prevent the authorities from looking the other way when the killings happen because there is something in it for them. They don't bring the terrorists to justice. They don't even ensure that the truth will be told, rather than the lie that rationalizes the crimes.

The Great Muslim Cover Up

Over in Toronto, a Muslim cleric with the unwieldy name of Al-Hashim Kamena Atangana had a great idea. Al-Hashim's idea was for Toronto to pass laws forcing women to wear Burkas. "Cover up or get raped", was the implied message. Toronto only has an estimated 5.5 percent Muslim population so the Toronto Taliban probably won't be getting their way until they have higher double digit numbers, but they can wait.

The Curse of Cain

It is not Cain's fault that he kills. It is Abel's fault that he builds.

Angry Liberals in America

Lawrence O'Donnell's job is to yell angry things on MSNBC.

Five Lessons from Egypt and the Arab Spring

The messages from the region are as worthless as the cheerful prognostications about waves of reform from Western media men who know little of the Middle East beyond its waiters and airports.

Europe’s Next World War Begins in France

France is in the middle of a civil war based on religious differences. The outcome of the war will determine whether France will be a secular republic or an Islamic state. The Jihadists have a plan for winning the war. The French authorities don’t.

Israel and the Structural Islamic Discrimination of the UN

Israel’s inability to get a fair hearing at the UN is no longer a matter of ideology or politics, but a manifestation of structural Islamic supremacism due to the makeup of the UN General Assembly.

The God of Global Warming

The God of Global Warming is the embodiment of liberalism and holds all the politically correct beliefs while carrying out brutal atrocities in the name of the left's favorite political causes.

Liberating Our Jerusalem

As we remember Jerusalem Day, it is important to remember that the city is united and free because diplomacy failed. Israel's greatest triumph happened only because diplomacy proved hopeless in deterring Muslim genocidal ambitions. Had Israel succumbed to international pressure and had Nasser been as subtle as Sadat, then the Six Day War would have looked like the Yom Kippur War with 1948 borders - and Israel very likely would not exist today.

Obama Gets his War On

Obama's shamelessness isn't incidental to his actions; it's their whole point.
