So long as the West focuses on names and faces in the so-called “war on terror”—as opposed to focusing on ideas and motivations—so long will it possibly win battles, even as it slowly loses the war.
When reading Western reports dealing with Islam, one must learn to read between the lines. Many of these reports do state the actual facts; but without providing proper context, Western readers are often left to interpret the information according to their own understandings.
Nach dem Terroranschlag in Norwegen melden sich die Freunde des religiösen Relativismus wie erwartet mit dem Argument, daß, wenn ein “Christ” wie Breivik einen Terroranschlag verübt, es töricht ist, zu behaupten, daß gewisse muslimische Lehren zu Gewalt und Terror inspirieren: alles wird relativ.
American TV network TLC recently announced that it is making a reality series following the lives of Muslims living in America. The program—called “All American Muslim”—will follow five Muslim families in Dearborn, Michigan hoping to expose the “misconceptions and conflicts” they face “outside and within” their own community.

Islamic attire for women—the burqa and hijab—are back in the news, though with a twist: In America, where they are legal, problems and lawsuits are arising, while in France, where they are banned, Muslim women are happily complying.
