Religion of Peace watch

April 14, 2008

In case any of us have forgotten, Palestinian member of parliament (Hamas) Yunis al-Astal reminds us that Islam will conquer Rome, Europe, and America. And no, he doesn’t mean peacefully:

Allah has chosen you for Himself and for His religion, so that you will serve as the engine pulling this nation to the phase of succession, security, and consolidation of power, and even to conquests thorough da’wa and military conquests of the capitals of the entire world. Very soon, Allah willing, Rome will be conquered, just like Constantinople was, as was prophesized by our Prophet Muhammad. Today, Rome is the capital of the Catholics, or the Crusader capital, which has declared its hostility to Islam, and has planted the brothers of apes and pigs* in Palestine in order to prevent the reawakening of Islam – this capital of theirs will be an advanced post for the Islamic conquests, which will spread through Europe in its entirety, and then will turn to the two Americas, and even Eastern Europe.

*(He means Jews, folks. It’s a description rooted in the Qur’an.)

Free speech in an age of jihad

April 14, 2008

Last Friday, Robert Spencer spoke symposium in New York City sponsored by The Foundation for Defense of Democracies’ Center for Law and Counterterrorism and The New Criterion. The topic was “Libel Tourism, ‘Hate Speech,’ and Political Freedom.” The following video, by Pamela of Atlas Shrugs, records Spencer’s portion of the discussion:

 

 


This isn’t going away

April 14, 2008

Even liberal columnists are taking a baseball bat to Obama:

Having grown up in one of those small Pennsylvania towns Sen. Barack Obama sneers at, I know what really makes people there "bitter." It’s slick-talking politicians who look down on their beliefs and values.

Small-town people get doubly "bitter" when those pols have the gall to ask for their votes while demeaning their lives. See, even hicks don’t like being played for suckers.

When they accused Obama of being out of touch for saying small-towners "cling to guns or religion" out of frustration, Sens. Hillary Clinton and John McCain were too kind.

Snob-ama is not just out of touch. He’s from another planet.

I don’t think I’ve seen such a self-inflicted wound by a major candidate since Gary Hart dared the press to catch him.
