WRITTEN BY David Solway
The term “Islamism” is meant to make Islam palatable, in the same way “Islamophobia” is meant to discredit those who know it is not.
Canada elects Obama-lite.
Traditional marriage is the bedrock of a healthy society.
An “anti-Islamic simpleton” meets the charge.
It’s time to become Children of Israel.
The unmistakable signs of a disaster from which we would all suffer, the fall of the once-greatest nation on earth, have left me “shaken.”
