Set to recognize the freedom of speech against any incursions from the faithful, International Blasphemy begin after the Danish cartoon controversy along with attempts to pass laws against blasphemy in the UN.
There is an uncanny irony here that many have noticed. The position of the Muslim community in the face of all provocations seems to be: Islam is a religion of peace, and if you say that it isn’t, we will kill you. Of course, the truth is often more nuanced, but this is about as nuanced as it ever gets: Islam is a religion of peace, and if you say that it isn’t, we peaceful Muslims cannot be held responsible for what our less peaceful brothers and sisters do. When they burn your embassies or kidnap and slaughter your journalists, know that we will hold you primarily responsible and will spend the bulk of our energies criticizing you for “racism” and “Islamophobia.”

His latest book, The End of Iraq, is notable for two things. First, it gives one of the most acute and intimate portraits of the Bush administration’s catastrophic mismanagement of the intervention. Second, it proposes a serious program for a radical change in policy. What are our irreducible objectives in Iraq? To prevent the country and its enormous resources from falling into the hands of the enemies of civilization—most notably al-Qaida—and to protect what remains of the secular and democratic alliance that we once hoped might emerge to govern the situation.
Ron Paul, famously, wants to End the Fed. Well, here’s a rejection of that view from Bruce Bartlett.
Stories like these always remind me of why we need a smaller government.
Apparently this leftist video is being shown in some public schools (can anyone confirm or deny this?). It is very troubling; the video is full of falsehoods and political spin. It has no place in a school – I mean, what class was this shown in anyway?
