Islamic Christmas Massacre in Berlin

Another day, another Islamic terror attack, this time in a crowded Christmas market in Berlin. So far there are twelve dead and some 50 injured. A large truck was deliberately driven into the crowds, and a suspect (thought to be

Wilders Convicted

Dec 10, 2016

Dutch politician Geert Wilders has just been found guilty of ‘inciting discrimination’ against Muslims. The guilty verdict was perhaps expected given how much Holland and Europe is bending over backwards to accommodate Islam. I wrote about this Dutch court case

Islam, the West, and Geert Wilders

Nov 24, 2016

A devout Muslim does not believe in democracy. Neither does he believe in the rule of law, freedom, pluralism, religious liberty, freedom of conscience, the equality of women, the equality of non-Muslims, and so on. For these reasons alone we

Ban the Bible – And Those Who Read It

Jihad, France and Christian Civilisation

Jul 28, 2016

Every new day is marked by the rising of the sun, and regrettably, we are getting another daily certainty and reality: every new day sees yet another Islamic terror attack. While they of course occur each and every day all

Islam’s Long History of Targeting Europe

Jul 18, 2016

Europe has always been a major target of Islam throughout its 1400-year history. What we see taking place today with jihadist attack in major European cities, Islamic no-go zones in many European locales, and creeping sharia, etc, demonstrates the ongoing

Nice – The Islamists Have Already Won

Jul 16, 2016

There is only one thing as predictable as the regular Islamic jihadist attacks, and that is the brainless wonders in the West who defend to the death Islam and make excuses for the terrorists. It happens every time. Now with

Coup Attempt in Turkey

Jul 16, 2016

The Islamist-leaning Erdogan government in Turkey is right now in chaos, with a military coup attempt underway as I pen this piece. While the results of this coup are not yet known, I can offer a bit of background in

Time to Exit the UN

Jul 1, 2016

Brexit was a stunning victory for liberty, independence and self-control, at least for the UK, and it may well be the first shot fired in a new revolution of freedom. Already a number of other European nations are talking about

Brexit: The Fallout

Jun 24, 2016

Just as soon as I finished writing my first article on the big Brexit win, it has already become dated. The repercussions just keep pouring in. Since then Prime Minister David Cameron has resigned (to take effect in October), stock

Brexit and Beyond

Jun 24, 2016

What looks to be a great victory in the UK, despite what all the pundits and pollsters said, has ramifications for other places around the globe. I am thinking here especially of the forthcoming Australian and American elections. But first,

Brussels and Islamic Terrorism – Again

Mar 23, 2016

Another day, more shouts in Arabic, more gun fire, more explosions, and more carnage, bloodshed and death. It is groundhog day, and no one seems to be learning any lessons here. This time a pair of bombings at the Zavantem
