Those who drive Christianity out of society are preparing the way for Islam.

Jul 16, 2019 by

A warning from Peter Hitchens, Caldron Pool: Peter Hitchens has warned, the atheist campaign against God in the West is preparing the way for Islam. In an interview on Conversations with Vicky Warren, Hitchens said, “When they drive Christianity out of Europe, as they’re rapidly succeeding in doing, they will not create an atheist paradise. They will leave a space for Islam.” Hitchens went on to warn that material prosperity, military force and anti-terror laws are not a reliable or sufficient...

The press must be free to criticise Islam

Jul 13, 2019 by

by Tom Slater, spiked: The Muslim Council of Britain’s new report on the media is highly questionable. What do the Daily Mail Australia, Joanna Lumley and the BBC’s Bodyguard drama have in common? Well, according to a new report by the Muslim Council of Britain, they have all misrepresented, generalised about or otherwise showed bias towards Muslims and / or Islam. The MCB’s new Centre for Media Monitoring has analysed almost 11,000 articles, news clips and TV shows this quarter, and the...

When did traditional morality become ‘fundamentalist’?

Jul 10, 2019 by

by Archbishop Cranmer: It was a question posed by Professor John Milbank on Twitter a few days ago.

There’s an important difference between being Islamophobic and Islamocritical

Jul 8, 2019 by

by David Robertson, Christian Today: It was a touching moment. On our last evening in our home of the past 27 years, our Muslim neighbour came in to say goodbye. She thanked us for being good neighbours and apologised if in any way her family had done anything wrong. I was moved at her tears and compassion. I don’t think it is ‘racist’ of me to say that I have always enjoyed having Muslim neighbours and would be happy to have them again. But why bring up racism? Because...

This craven deference to Islamism endangers us all – including Muslims

Jul 8, 2019 by

by Karen Harradine, The Conservative Woman: Part 1: A FEW years ago, while I was living in Singapore, the government there expelled two Bangladeshi migrants within days of learning that they were preaching jihad. Protecting their citizens from harm is more important to the Singaporean government than fearing accusations of ‘racism’ or ‘Islamophobia’. Sadly the British Government is not equally courageous. I wrote in TCW last week on how Islamist hate preachers such as Linda Sarsour and Ahmed...
