Neocons and the Left: Know Your Enemies

To whatever extent there is an establishment conservative voice in the United States and in much of Western Europe, it sounds unmistakably neoconservative. Whether the topic is spreading “human rights,” favoring a “democratic capitalist welfare state,” opposing xenophobia and anti-immigrationists from the standpoint of “universal democratic values,” the side represented by the media that is not officially leftist can be characterized as “neoconservative.” Those on the right of this allowable opposition are targeted as “extremists.”

Honor-Killings, Islam, and Christendom

Honor-Killings, Islam, and Christendom

The Koran is explicit on the subject of disciplining women in general and wives in particular, as critics of Islam, former Moslems in particular, observe. And while the Koran may not suggest “honor killing” per se, Islamic societies and culture, as well as its men, have absorbed its sacred injunctions on the subject of women. No wonder a “French” Moslem gouged out his wife’s eyes for refusing sex.
