Belgium: Eurabization Report 2007

Oct 31, 2007 — Guest Column

By Filip Dewinter,

The situation in Belgium does not differ significantly from the situation in other Western European countries, except for the fact that it might be worse here than elsewhere because Belgium is an artificial state without a national identity to defend.

Two-faced oil Sheiks who trade in terror

The arrival yesterday of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia on a state visit has already generated more than the usual share of hypocrisy from both sides of a relationship built not on affection but on oil and commerce.

Even before he set off from Riyadh, the King chided our security services for allegedly ignoring Saudi warnings about the imminence of the 7/7 London bombings and for being half-hearted in combating terrorism.

Since Saudi Arabia is perhaps the most potent force behind global terrorism, promoting a deeply fundamentalist strain of Islamic theology worldwide, this must be one of the most hypocritical statements of all time.

Dark Matter Not Matter…

Oct 31, 2007 — Guest Column

For a long time now, dark matter has been the explanation for one of those space anomalies that no one has quite been able to figure out. The anomaly? The visible and interesting stuff that hangs around our universe—stars, planets, gasses and dust—are simply not heavy enough.

Interestng piece from the web…

A Florida city may become the first in America to ban Chinese products amid mounting national concern about the Asian giant’s effect on the US economy.

The Necklace

Gujarat, India. Gold and woman are almost synonymous to each other. It is very rare to find a woman who does not get attracted towards gold and jewelry. It is the same with me also, but most of us are not aware that the net gold investment turns out to be a loss instead of gain. How? Well, you will be able to find more about it when you read my experience and co-relate it with that of yours.

Sinisterism - Secular Religion Of The Lie

Oct 30, 2007 — Guest Column

Bruce Walker was kind enough to send me a copy of his book (V 3.0) and I have actually been reading it!  Note it is not a stale project, the current issue is version 3.

News Media Revolt: Is Canada Next

Oct 29, 2007 — Guest Column

Journalism faces a crisis around the world and unless it’s fixed, society is in big trouble, American scholar and media activist Robert McChesney says.

“The market’s not going to solve the problem…. The technology’s not going to rescue us.”

The Internet and the Future

Oct 29, 2007 — Guest Column

An ABC News article headlined a story on the internet with “Is it Time to Scrap the Internet and Start Over?” And it is a question that a lot of people are asking these days. So much of what the internet is has evolved long after the original conception. So much so, it’s become outdated.

TXT of the Living Dead

Oct 29, 2007 — Guest Column

In a day and age where technology has provided us with giant leaps forward, it is no surprise that the most popular aspects of said technology are the humorous ones. Take,  for example the internet. Putting aside porn for a moment, one of the most popular meme’s - a theoretical unit of cultural information—is the act of putting bad spelling with photos.

Claim human rights violated by special nightly menu offered during Ramadan

A prison menu offering ham sandwiches has prompted a multi-million-dollar lawsuit by Muslim inmates who claim their human rights were violated.

Officials at the high security prison in Leeds, England, denied they gave any of their 200 Muslim prisoners ham sandwiches. But they admitted a mistake in the special menus printed during the Islamic Ramadan holiday, the London Daily Mail reported.

Are we All Nazis Now

Oct 29, 2007 — Guest Column

One of the greatest injustices to the victims of racism, and in particular the holocaust, is the trivialization of it. One does not have to agree with the Dutch “Islamophobic” anti-immigration politicians Geert Wilders or Rita Verdonk, but what kind of person writes something like: “Whenever I see people such as Wilders and Verdonk I think of the Kristallnacht! The moment the Jews were rounded up…”?

Anti-Islamization Protesters Left Bloodied with Beating with Iron Bars and Stabbing by Muslim thugs

Oct 29, 2007 — Guest Column

As I mentioned earlier a campaign has been mounted in Europe called Stop Islamisation of Europe. This group’s aim is self-evident - to oppose multicultural policies which have allowed Islamists to wield political influence, and the encroachment of Islam in Europe. They regard this spread of a potentially violent religion/ideology as a threat to the values which built Europe. They are not racist - their slogan is “Racism is the lowest form of human stupidity, but Islamophobia is the height of common sense.”

Giuliani-Torre ‘08…

Oct 27, 2007 — Guest Column

A couple of months ago, I floated the idea of Rudy Giuliani picking a running mate early.  I suggested that running mate be former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum.

Comet Holmes Experiences Millionfold Explosion of Light

Astronomy is one of those sciences that anyone can really get a hang of. Not to say that those who study it aren’t far and above us in terms of understanding, but unlike physics or chemistry, it isn’t reliant on unfathomable precepts. All you need is a decent dictionary (Wikipedia for preference) and some time to read.

New Uses for the so-called “frivolous” Social Medias

Oct 26, 2007 — Guest Column

One of the challenges some of us face as we try and introduce our friends and family to some of the new Web 2.0 applications is a very large brick wall. My best friend is insistent in her belief that “Twitter is gay” and refuses to report anything other than reports on a fictional cat named Tubby. But for many of us, we are slowly getting through.

Turks Set Cars Alight in Brussels

Oct 25, 2007 — Guest Column

Tonight (Wednesday evening) heavy rioting erupted in Turkish quarters of Brussels, the capital of Belgium. Buses and trams were attacked. Several cars were torched and shops destroyed. Police forces were unable to restore law and order in the boroughs of Sint-Joost-ten-Node and Schaarbeek where since last Sunday the animosity among Turks is running high. Turkish flags are omnipresent. In some streets the Turkish crescent and star adorns almost every house.

Bowing to the Islamists

Oct 25, 2007 — Guest Column

Last Thursday, a group of 80 people from 15 European countries, plus Israel, Canada and the United States, convened in a conference room on the seventh floor of the European Parliament building in Brussels for a “counterjihad” meeting.

Dispatch from the Eurabian Front: Riots in Amsterdam and Brussels

Oct 25, 2007 — Guest Column

Europe’s no-go zones or SUAs (“sensitive urban areas”) are multiplying. These are areas where the police no longer dares to venture and where Islamists hold sway. Every night since the beginning of last week, immigrant youths have been torching cars and clashing with police in Amsterdam’s Slotervaart district.
