It’s Not the Arab Spring, It’s the Nahda

Clifford D. May

The Sharia Court of Pennsylvania — the Transcript

I have made a transcript of the Pennsylvania case in which state judge Mark Martin, a Muslim convert and U.S. Army reservist who served in Iraq, relied on a sharia law defense (as well as some evidentiary contortions) to dismiss an open-and-shut harassment case against a Muslim man who...

First the Ahmadi, Then Everybody Else

Their crime? These Muslims have the temerity to suggest that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, an Indian who died in 1908, was the promised Mahdi — the redeemer of Islam — and not one of the false prophets about whom Mohammed had warned.

‘Islam Is Islam, And That’s It’

Back when I was even younger, and living in Rome, the main topic of conversation was of course Communism. Italy had the largest Communist Party outside the Soviet Union, and it was forever on the cusp of becoming the biggest party in Italy, thus forming the government, thus taking over.

A Blase Reading of the Dangers of Sharia Law

James Woolsey

Michael Gerson’s assault on Newt Gingrich’s opposition to the Arabian version of Islamic law [“Sowing the wind,” Dec. 13] contained an assumption: that in Islam, as Mao Zedong put it in another context, “100 flowers blossom and 100 schools contend.”
