  1. The Jews have turned against Geert Wilders for his party’s support for a ban of the ritual slaughter of animals.

    Because of this, the local Jews are saying he’s anti-semitic and he’s at the forefront of the anti-semitism movement in Europe.


    It’s amusing the Jews are quite happy getting thumped and harassed by Muzzies but someone supports a animals rights bill and the Jews see him as evil incarnate. With friends like that who needs enemies.

    If this is the way the Jews want it. Maybe it’s time the anti-Jihad movement separates themselves from the Jewish community. A community I might that is quite supportive of Islamic immigration and rights because of their Leftist bent.

  2. I have no sympathy for Tom Holland.
    As a Christian, I know that Islam is profane, that Mohammed is a false prophet, and that I worship a God who is different in every sense from the demonic Muslim “Allah.”
    And that is the perspective from which I would start, and it would probably be the one with which I end.
    Black holes and empty deserts are all Islam has to offer . . .
    Committed Westerners know this.
    Historians who approach Islam from a manufactured multicultural perspective will always fall into the black holes and empty deserts.
    They will always submit, even without saying the shahada.

  3. To Annonymous at 12:44 am:

    Please stop equating the view of one Rabbi (and those who share it) with the views of all Jews.

    Do you assume that the view of one Archbishop, priest, minister or pastor (and those who share it) is the same view held by all Christians?

    Of course you don’t assume that at all. So I must conclude that you just want to blame the “Joos.”
