You have seen the hatred of homosexuals promoted by speakers at this Sunday’s Interpal event at the Edmonton Islamic Centre in London.
Those vicious statements are part of a long record of Islamist diatribes on all sorts of issues. Terrorists are a favourite too, as shown in this post about a speaker at another recent [...]
It is hard to imagine a less suitable speaker for charity fundraising events than the extremist preacher Uthman Lateef.
Unless we’re talking about Interpal, of course. Lateef is perfect for the Hamas supporters of Interpal and helped them raise funds just ten days ago, as he has on other occasions in the past. (Click [...]
Those who use the word Marxist as an epithet, and believe no decent person could be a Marxist, need to contend with the inconvenient example of Norm Geras– an eminently thoughtful man (the opposite of what Orwell called “the gramophone mind”), a passionate believer in liberal democracy and human rights, an anti-totalitarian and a self-styled [...]

Efrain Rios Montt, the former Guatemalan military dictator, is now on trial in his own country for genocide.
During his 18-month reign of terror, beginning in March 1982, Rios Montt embarked on a scorched earth campaign against communist guerrillas in which tens of thousands of Indians were massacred.
His methods [...]
There is no good time to team up with Islamist extremists. There are also especially bad times to make such a foolish move. The aftermath of the terrorist murder in Woolwich is one of those times.
Yet this is exactly what the self-styled “anti-racists” of Unite Against Fascism (UAF) say they will do tomorrow [...]

Is there a pattern here?
This sickening atrocity in London is exactly what we are paying the same kind of people to do in Syria

The cold blooded murder of Lee Rigby of the 2nd Battalion the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers – just outside his barracks in Woolwich – saw Al [...]

I live in Greenwich, South East London (a couple of miles from Woolwich). As someone from a Muslim family, I needed to write down my thoughts on this terrible and traumatic event. I feel that the result would be appropriate for this excellent blog.
I don’t need to come from a Muslim [...]
A terrorist explains his actions.
The video is shocking, but his words are not. We’re used to them, even though they are too frequently distorted through the dissembling muddled mumble of Guardian pundits. Here they are clear and unadulterated.
Gene adds: There are almost always ordinary people who act with extraordinary selflessness and bravery when things like this happen. [...]

Susan Rice, US ambassador to the United Nations, has responded to UN Human Rights Council official Richard Falk’s effort to blame the Boston Marathon bombings on “Tel Aviv.”
Outraged by Richard Falk’s highly offensive Boston comments. Someone who spews such vitriol has no place at the UN. Past time for him to go.
