Europe sells the hangman's rope - again

Snipet: 
... range of Iran's city-busting missiles and bombs -- all in the hands of a primitive theocracy with its head stuck in the desert sands of the 7th century.
Body: 

It was V.I. Lenin who sneered that the last capitalist would sell communists the rope to hang him with. That's what happened in the Soviet Empire, which ran Eastern Europe for half a century. But even in the 1930s most European nations were ready to surrender preemptively to the Nazi war machine. Today Europe has suicidally imported more than 50 million Muslims -- just as Obama wants us to do here. With America failing to provide international leadership, Europe has simply collapsed and surrendered -- hoping the crocodile will eat it last. Remember how well that worked the last few times?

Why India Shouldn't Move Away From the Hindi Script

Snipet: 
Not much Persian literature survived the transition of the language from using the Pahlavi to Arabic scripts in the 7th century, but in the 1,300 years ...
Body: 

There’s no reason for India to let go of its traditional scripts. Recently, the Indian news site Scroll.in had an interesting debate on the relative merits of writing the Hindi language in the Roman alphabet instead of the native Devanagari script, triggered by a much derided photograph of Indian politician Rahul Gandhi carrying around notes in Roman Hindi. One author at Scroll.in, Keshava Guha, argued for Hindi to keep the Devanagari script, a position that I agree with for both reasons of cultural continuity and linguistic utility. Simply put, there is no reason for Hindi-speakers not to u...

Rabbi Dovid Katz: The New Iranian Empire – Putting Obama's Deal with Iran into Historical Context

Snipet: 
Iran plans revenge for the 7th century, and it looks like they will use Shiite Islam the way the Kremlin used international communism-to obtain revenge.
Body: 

Current events never occur in a vacuum. Most of us know this but never put in the actual effort that’s required to truly understand the historical context of events surrounding us. This is especially true of what we see unfolding before our eyes between, Iran, Europe and the Obama administration. We now see an Iran that is destabilizing the Middle East through the funding of terrorist proxy states, building a nuclear arsenal and we ask “Why?”. Context is needed. Historical context is essential to grasping the “why?”. So, I will attempt here to outline for you a very basic history of Iran, th...

Body: 

Pieces of an ancient Koran, which scholars propose that they have been predated the known founding date of Islam by the Prophet Muhammad, are raising serious questions with at least one scholar saying that the scripture’s writing belongs to a slightly later era. The parched manuscript leaves written are held by the University of Birmingham in the U.K., and have gone through radiocarbon dating in a University of Oxford lab in late 2014. The research has delivered a astonishing result that the leaves were dated to a time period between 568 A.D. and 645 A.D. Muhammad known to be The Prophet, is...

Body: 

Is Islam wrong or fake? Quran copies that predate the Muslim prophet Muhammad may exist, according to some researchers. If their theories are true, then some claim this discovery shakes the very foundation of Islam, but others say the response to this claim is all in the writing. In a related report by the Inquisitr, experts at the University of Oxford used radiocarbon analysis to date the parchment on which the Quran text was written to the period between 568 and 645, which creates quite a problem for Muslims if some scholars are to be believed. “This gives more ground to what have been per...
