As the spectacle of a man being tried for speaking the truth about Islam comes to its end in the Netherlands, the accused continues to assert that the accusations of “hate speech” that have been made against him are baseless — the problem is that Islam is an ideology of hatred.

Few, if any, understand what is happening in Afghanistan and Pakistan better than Republican Congressman and retired Army veteran Allen West of Florida (photo, left). In a speech Tuesday to the Heritage Foundation, he declared:

Muslim men are continuing their brutal campaign of rape against Norwegian women, according to a police report broadcast on a Norwegian television station.

According to the report, all assault rapes in Oslo during the past five years were committed by “non-Western” men, a clear euphemism for Muslims either from Africa, the Middle East, or Asia given the identity of most rapists in Scandinavia.

Al-Badeel, an Egyptian news service, has reported that an Egyptian Nazi Party will contend in the upcoming elections.  Emad Abdel Sattar, a founding member of the group, summed up its belief as "vesting all powers in a president after choosing him carefully," adding, " … preparations are under way to choose the most competent person to represent the party."  The new party also notes that membership is "increasing at an unexpected rate, and several people came back to ask about the nature of the party and its plans."

Pope Benedict XVI, who like other teenagers in Nazi Germany, was forced to join the Hitler Youth, recently recalled solemnly the evils of Nazism. Although it was once fashionable to try to present Christianity as some sort of precursor to Nazi anti-Semitism, and in particular to attack the Catholic Church as an accomplice of the Nazis, honest history tells a very different story. Nazi persecution of all serious Christians was unrelenting and severe.
