Sending out a Political Signal

In the wake of 9/11, a new brand of home-grown right-wing terrorism was able to emerge in Germany. Even specially drafted anti-terror laws didn't help because right-wing radicalism had been underestimated and sometimes even structurally repressed for too long. After the brutal right-wing extremist terrorist attacks in Norway, it became clear in Germany too that right-wing terrorists were capable of carrying out the worst attacks the country had seen since the Second World War.

Islamic group issues safety advisory after another mosque is targeted

A Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization today has issued a community safety advisory for American mosques following another incident targeting an Islamic house of worship, this time in Rhode Island.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations said in a statement that Muslims in North Smithfield, R.I., have asked for extra police protection after the sign for Masjid Al-Islam was vandalized early Sunday. That incident followed Monday’s fire that destroyed a Joplin mosque and the deadly shooting attack Sunday on a Sikh temple in Wisconsin.

ANTI-ISLAMIC DUTCH POLITICIAN SPEAKING IN CANADA FOR THE FIRST TIME: WHY?

Protesters are getting ready for Geert Wilders’ first Canadian visit as the controversial anti-Islamic Dutch politician rolls into town for a private speech to local Christian groups Monday night. The Freedom Party leader maintains that because Canada helped out Holland during the Second World War, it is only fitting to repay them by raising awareness the country is in danger of a hostile takeover and being “Islamicized.” “Freedom is the most precious thing we have,” he said Sunday at a Toronto hotel.

WILDERS CONTROVERSIAL CRUSADE AGAINST 'ISLAMIC IDEOLOGY' CONTINUES

Canada should ban Islamic schools, outlaw the wearing of burkas and put a stop to the building of mosques, a controversial Dutch politician said on Monday during a stop at Sun News Network. If Canada wants to protect its democratic freedoms and Western beliefs, it must act now and keep “Islamic ideology” outside of Canada’s borders, said Geert Wilders, leader of Holland’s Freedom Party, during an interview on The Source with Ezra Levant.
