This Week's Editorial

European 'No-Go' Zones for Non-Muslims Proliferating "Occupation Without Tanks or Soldiers" 
by Soeren Kern. August 22, 2011, Gatestone Institute

Islamic extremists are stepping up the creation of "no-go" areas in European cities that are off-limits to non-Muslims. Many of the "no-go" zones function as microstates governed by Islamic Sharia law. Host-country authorities effectively have lost control in these areas and in many instances are unable to provide even basic public aid such as police, fire fighting and ambulance services. The "no-go" areas are the by-product of decades of multicultural policies that have encouraged Muslim immigrants to create parallel societies and remain segregated rather than become integrated into their European host nations.

JOHN HOWARD: GLOBAL WARMING BATTLE  ‘HAS BECOME A RELIGION’
Nov. 6, 2013,  Ben Webster, The Times

People who believe that the world is facing catastrophe from climate change have adopted the cause as a “substitute religion”, according John Howard, the former Prime Minister of Australia.

John Howard accused some scientists of having a “nakedly political agenda” in their advice on global warming and said that attempts were being made to intimidate politicians by telling them to “follow the science”. Delivering a lecture in London last night, Mr Howard said he doubted that a global agreement on cutting emissions would be reached. He described himself as an “agnostic on global warming” and said that those who gave apocalyptic warnings of the effects of greenhouse gas emissions should remember mankind’s “infinite capacity to adapt”.

World Council of Churches Stands By As Christians Perish, Churches Witherby

Who needs the WCC any more? Would the world, let alone Middle East Christians, be better off without it?
The World Council of Churches (WCC) in Geneva claims to represent and serve 345 churches worldwide. What has it done to help the persecuted churches in Iraq, Syria and Egypt? Or the flood of Syrian refugees into Jordan and Lebanon? Answer: it has devoted the whole of 2013 to promoting a World Week for Peace in Palestine Israel (September 22-28). That is, it has poured its Swiss francs into stirring up the one corner of the area that is currently almost calm.

The World Council of Churches (WCC) in Geneva claims to represent and serve 345 churches worldwide. What has it done to help the persecuted churches in Iraq, Syria and Egypt? Or the flood of Syrian refugees into Jordan and Lebanon? Answer: it has devoted the whole of 2013 to promoting a World Week for Peace in Palestine Israel (September 22-28). That is, it has poured its Swiss francs into stirring up the one corner of the area that is currently almost calm.
It is not as if it is a secret that Muslim violence in Iraq drove out half the Christian population within a decade. Or that affiliates of Al-Qaeda have emptied whole Syrian villages and towns of their Christian populations. Or that almost a hundred Coptic churches in Egypt were assailed by supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood shortly after President Morsi was deposed. And that was merely one chapter in the ongoing martyrdom of the Copts, which has seen 100,000 of them fleeing Egypt since the downfall of President Mubarak.
All such facts are documented on many websites, above all that of Raymond Ibrahim, which also records the endless attacks on Christians in Pakistan and Nigeria, indeed worldwide, by Muslim groups. Since August 2011, the Gatestone Institute has published his monthly roundup of such reports. Look at the website of the WCC, however, and you will hardly notice any awareness of all that. Instead, the WCC's website is loaded with schemes and resources relating to the Palestinians. The "resources" offer compilations of Palestinian propaganda, including calls for the so-called Palestinian "right of return" (that is, the transformation of Israel into an Arab-majority state).

Democracy May Have Had Its Day
Donald Kagan, Yale's great classicist gives his final lecture, fighting as ever for Western civilization.
By Msthew Kaminski, The Wall Street Journal, April 27, 2013

Donald Kagan is engaging in one last argument. For his "farewell lecture" here at Yale on Thursday afternoon, the 80-year-old scholar of ancient Greece—whose four-volume history of the Peloponnesian War inspired comparisons to Edward Gibbon's Roman history—uncorked a biting critique of American higher education.

Universities, he proposed, are failing students and hurting American democracy. Curricula are "individualized, unfocused and scattered." On campus, he said, "I find a kind of cultural void, an ignorance of the past, a sense of rootlessness and aimlessness." Rare are "faculty with atypical views," he charged. "Still rarer is an informed understanding of the traditions and institutions of our Western civilization and of our country and an appreciation of their special qualities and values."

Join Avi Davis when he interviews Neil J. Kressel, author of the The Sons of Pigs and Apes,: Muslim Antisemitism and the Conspiracy of Silence
Log in and listen at any time

 The rise of antisemitism in the Muslim world is compounded by the fact that many in the West refuse to recognize the issue. Apathy, ignorance,confusion, bigotry and misguided multiculturalism have all contributed to the growth of this plague. Author Kressel argues convincingly that Muslim antisemitism is the acid test of the seriousness of Western liberalism. If the West fails to stem this growing tide, as now seems likely, future affairs will not go well for the proponents of democracy
