The Jihad on Egypt’s Pharaonic Antiquities

Published on Jihad Watch While Islamic hate for idols is a well documented phenomenon—permeating both the whole of Islamic doctrine and history—the “Arab Spring” has given greater rise to this hate, as it has to all uniquely Islamic phenomena.

Egypt’s Government and Media Conspire against Christian Copts

Published by Gatestone Institute From top to bottom, from the Muslim Brotherhood president to the Muslim Brotherhood-monitored media, the lies concerning Egypt’s Christian minority—whether presidential lies that claim they are cared for, or whether media lies demonizing them—continue unabated.  Some recent examples follow: After two Christian boys were earlier arrested for allegedly blaspheming a Quran [...]

Muslim Cleric Condemns Christianity for Teaching Gender Equality

A recent talk show on the Egyptian station Al Hafiz partially explains why it is that Islam’s clerics are staunchly against discussing Christian or biblical teachings in Egyptian schoolrooms—even as the teaching of the Quran is mandatory, for both Muslim and Christian students.  Discussing Christianity’s teachings concerning women, one of the guests, a sheikh dressed [...]

Did the Muslim Brotherhood Really Win Egypt’s Presidency?

Muslim Persecution of Christians: September, 2012

 Published by Gatestone Institute The aftermath of collective punishment for Pakistan’s Christians—the inevitable byproduct of the notorious Rimsha Masih blasphemy case, concerning a Christian girl falsely accused of desecrating a Quran—was more dramatic than the blasphemy case itself.  Indeed, knowing what was in store for them, some Christians even held a symbolic funeral procession, carrying a [...]

The Christian Left’s Humanitarian Hypocrisy

The world’s double standards concerning which peoples qualify as oppressed and deserving of help is staggering.  Two recent stories make this clear: First, a report exposed, in the words of the Turkish Coalition of America, “Turkey’s continued interest in expanding business and cultural ties with the American Indian community” and “Turkey’s interest in building bridges [...]

The Islamic Schoolyard Bully and Obama’s America

In an era of high education and specialty degrees—from psychology to political science—perhaps it was inevitable for simple common sense to fall by the wayside.  The embassy attacks across the Muslim world, especially the most savage in Egypt and Libya, are a testimony to this: U.S. policy towards these countries fundamentally exacerbated their wild reactions.  [...]
