Immodest though this may be, Brenda`s blog item provides a natural opportunity for me remind old readers and point new readers to a related and somewhat lengthy blog I did a couple of years ago. I was recommending Greg Davis`s superb book Religion of Peace?: Islam`s War Against the World and trying to get across the fundamental idea that there really is no such thing as "moderate Islam."
An important source for my 2007 blog entry was the writings of Lawrence Auster, whose blogsite "View From the Right" is linked in the blogroll on the left margin of this page. Earlier this year, Auster gave a speech (at the Preserving Western Civilization conference), "A Real Islam Policy for a Real America," that points to the resolution — if our society would only awaken — of the problems of Islam in the West, exemplified anew by the particular case Brenda alerts us to. The speech is available as a longish essay that will repay your attention to it, as it starts with larger subjects and then applies the conclusions to Islam.
And what does this have to do with immigration? Everything.
