France, The “Budding Islamic Republic”

Jan 10, 2020 by

by Giulio Meotti, Gatestone Institute: “Five years after the killings at Charlie Hebdo and Hyper Cacher, France has learned to live with the Islamist threat,” wrote Yves Thréard, deputy editor at the daily newspaper Le Figaro. “Not a month goes by… without a murderous attack with the cry of ‘Allahu Akbar’ taking place on our soil….

‘Deadly Delusions’: Europe’s Deradicalization Programs

Dec 9, 2019 by

by Giulio Meotti, Gatestone Institute: […] The latest attack in London was a lethal mix of religious dissimulation and Western naïveté. It also, one hopes, buries all the British illusions of deradicalizing jihadists. As the Times reported, the Behavioural Insights Team (BIT), the so-called “nudge unit” formerly part of the Cabinet Office, examined 33 deradicalization programs across the UK and found that only two were supposedly successful.

A picture of our criminal naivety

Dec 7, 2019 by

by Douglas Murray, Mailonline: Ten years ago, DOUGLAS MURRAY was publicly confronted by Anjem Choudary. Standing adoringly next to the hate cleric was an accomplice of the London Bridge murderer.

Facts of ‘terrorist’ killings are clear but our society is divided by the meaning

Dec 5, 2019 by

by Gavin Ashenden: Islam has three political strategies; immigration, population and violence. Reflections on Usman Khan.. There is a well-known doctrine in Islam called Taqiyya. It’s the principle that should some deceit further Islam’s interest, you have a duty to deceive. It looks tragically as though Usman Khan was pretending that had been de-radicalised, when in fact, as his killing spree indicated he hadn’t. But he had deceived a number of people on the way. If that’s true, it makes Jack...

The indoctrination of the justice system

Dec 5, 2019 by

by Andrew Devine, The Conservative Woman: THE latest London Bridge attacker, Usman Khan, was attending, unsupervised, a conference on criminal rehabilitation as a supposedly rehabilitated criminal. It is extremely troubling to know that the so-called professionals working in the justice system charged with protecting the public from Islamist terrorism seem to have little understanding of Islamist ideology and how Islamists differ from ordinary criminals. There is a world of difference between...
