Affirming the West

The Poverty of Marxism

Islamic Imperialism: The Warpath of Muhammad

“Muhammad initially devised the concept of jihad, ‘exertion in the path of Allah’, as he called his god, as a means to entice his local followers to raid Meccan caravans, instantaneously transforming a common tribal practice into a supreme religious duty and the primary vehicle for the spread of Islam throughout the ages. He developed […]

Morality and Religion: Natural Phenomena

Is the Qur’an a Scientific Miracle?

“Do they not consider the Qur’an (with care)? Had it been from other than Allah, they would surely have found therein much discrepancy.” Qur’an 4.82 Muslims are forever claiming that the Qur’an is a “scientific miracle”, i.e. that 1,400 years ago, the Prophet Muhammad accurately predicted much of what we only know to be true […]

Shame on Dublin City Council

The Clonskeagh Mosque believes in the death penalty for apostasy and wants strict blasphemy laws to be introduced in Ireland.

The Myth of Qur’anic Immutability

T.H. Huxley once said that wherever bibliolatry has prevailed, ignorance and cruelty have accompanied it. Indeed, Qur’anic bibliolatry lies at the heart of the intellectual and moral stagnation which defines the Muslim world today.
