"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Muslim Convert to Christianity Faces Death Threats

“Malaysia is at a crossroads. Do we go down the Islamic road, or do we maintain the secular character of the federal constitution that has been eroding in the last 10 years?” - Benjamin Dawson, attorney for Lina Joy
It's not just in the Middle East and it didn't start with George Bush....

We spend each day ignorant of what is truly going on in the world. The Left and msm would have you believe the enemy is our president....or they might stretch a bit and say it is Middle Eastern extremists, but Iraq is a distraction.

What is a "moderate" Islamist?

In Kuala Lampur, Malaysia, Lina Joy converted from Moslem to Christian eight years ago. To this day she is yet to marry the Christian man that she wants to. She faces death threats and:
Five years ago she started proceedings in the civil courts to seek the right to marry her Christian fiancé and have children. Because she had renounced her Muslim faith, Ms. Joy, 42, argued, Malaysia’s Islamic Shariah courts, which control such matters as marriage, property and divorce, did not have jurisdiction over her.
The courts decision?
"In a series of decisions, the civil courts ruled against her."
