Lawrence Auster says that there is no such thing as a moderate Muslim. He is wrong. One of the major religious leaders (and a former Prime Minister) of the world's largest Muslim country is actually pro-Israel. And I'll bet Lawrence does not even know whom I am talking about. That there is no such thing as a moderate ARAB Muslim I might tend to agree with, however. No doubt there are some decent Arabs but they seem to be vastly outnumbered by others whom I can only call disgusting.

There is a good article here pointing out the biased and deceptive reporting of the famous "100,000 war deaths" poll conducted in Iraq and reported in the British medical journal Lancet. Given the blatant bias in the reporting, the whole study has to be suspect.

There is an article here about the situation in the Netherlands which shows that the Dutch have finally realized that their experiment in multicultural tolerance of Muslims has failed. It will be interesting to see what their next move is. They are already getting tougher on the Muslims in small ways. One would hope that the failure of the super-tolerant Dutch will show others that not everything can be mindlessly tolerated.

An article here says that Islam now fills the role in French ghetto suburbs that Communism once did. The author sees that as a hopeful sign for the future, which it may perhaps be, but given the big role that the Communist party had in France up until recently, it is a pretty bleak comment on the present. It does confirm, however, that France has always been a revolting country.

There is an article here from an historian which argues that Bush and Blair may one day be seen as akin to Roosevelt and Churchill

The absurd George McGovern seems to have learnt nothing over the years since he was a failed Democrat Presidential candidate. He now wants America to surrender, not just withdraw from, Iraq. How deep his hatred of America must be! And he's what they call a "progressive" these days! At least the American "Progressives" of 100 years ago were patriotic. The American Left these days really is deeply decayed.

There are some interesting defences of a variety of libertarian ideas here

There is a prayer request here that many of my readers might like to heed.

Jeff Jacoby shows via historical quotes that GWB's military interventions in the Muslim world are very similar to past interventions by esteemed Democrat Presidents like JFK, Truman and FDR. The modern-day American Left has clearly lost its way. Democrats once had principles. Now they are pure psychopathic nihilists who believe only in power for themselves.

Antisemitism denied: One of my readers has sent in a fisking of a Leftist claim (by Tony Judt in The Nation) that antisemitism is not a serious problem in France. See here.

That power only, not principles, is what matters to Leftists is perfectly shown by the Kerry campaign. They put up a man whose policies seemed to be 99% the same as George Bush's even though the Left have previously disagreed violently with those policies. "Whatever it takes" is their rule.

Leftists are phonies. For most of them all that they want is to sound good. They don't care about doing good. That's why they do so much harm. They don't really care what the results of their policies are as long as they are seen as having good intentions.
