In her essay A Call For Clear Thinking, Ayaan Hirsi Ali urges her fellow Muslims to reject fundamentalism and to embrace the open society

THE CAGED VIRGIN
by Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Free Press, £12.99; 208pptimesonline.co.uk/booksfirstAyaan Hirsi Ali has become a widely admired and controversial political figure because of her attempts to free women from an oppressive Muslim culture. She survived years of death threats and furious denouncements after moving to the Netherlands, where she was elected an MP. Labelled an infidel, she has had to have permanent protection since 2002, when she described the Prophet Muhammad as a tyrant and pervert and Islam as a backward religion. She was threatened with deportation by the Dutch authorities after a dispute over her asylum application, and announced her intention of living in America.

Her bestselling collection of essays, The Caged Virgin, brings together some of her most passionate and compelling writing on a wide range of issues concerning Islam. Drawing on her own first-hand experience and cultural background, she assesses the role of women in Islam both in practice and in theory; the rights of the individual; fanaticism; and Western policies towards immigrant communities

The Dawning of a New Dark Age: A Collection of Essays on Islam

Filed under: Bøger, Books, Islam, Uncategorized — limewoody @ 6:45 am

A Collection of Essays on Islam

Accurate, authoritative and readable essays on the threat to western civilization of Islam

Mark's format, a collection of essays, makes this an extremely readable text that can be picked up and put down as opportunity allows, giving 'thinking time' between reads in order to fully process the knowledge and insights imparted here. Still too much is misunderstood about this aggressively invasive ideology which threatens to overwhelm and subvert our Western civilization. Since Islam seeks to progress an agenda of world-wide domination and universal submission of all to Allah, by the sword if necessary, we most certainly need to understand far more about it. Mark knows Islam intimately, and his writing is both perceptive and authoritative. He clearly outlines the dangers posed by Islam, describing the process of 'Islamicization' that is already happening, supporting his concerns with references (in context) to the Qur'an and to history, identifying the factors in our own civilzation that fosters erosion of our Judeo-Christian heritage and invites the incursion of Islam, and suggesting means by which this could be stopped and reversed. There is a great deal of information packed between the covers of this book and much food for serious thought. To some it will be a horror story, but as frightening as the subject may be, we are wise to have our eyes opened in order to recognize what is happening hopefully in time to help stop the situation from worsening. It may already be too late unless radical measures are put in place, but we all need to know and properly understand the real threat in order that something effective can be done about it. This is an absolute 'must read' for anyone who wishes to know the truth rather than be lulled into complacency by the 'taqiyya' (holy hypocrisy) of the Islamic clerics and apologists. If you have never read anything on this subject before, this is a good place to start. Likewise, it is also an essential read for those who do know the subject, the author becoming increasingly well known for his contributions to major websites devoted to the education of the web-savvy general population interested in knowing more about Islam. I have become well-read on this subject myself, and can testify that the author writes in accord with all else that I have read by other authors with impeccable and relevant credentials. I can recommend Mark's book to all who wish to be properly informed on this subject and, as the author puts it so well, the 'dawning of a new dark age' under Islam.

MULTAN: More than 1,500 Christians protested in Tibba Shomali in Mian Chunnu tehsil against the burning of the Bible and other sacred texts by four Muslims on Tuesday.

The men were caught while burning the Bible, calendars carrying the picture of Jesus Christ and other Christian booklets. “We caught four people – Hafiz Islam, Hafiz Abid, Rana Abdul Ghaffar and Rana Abdul Jabbar – burning our sacred books and literature on a heap of garbage on Tuesday evening,” Pakistan Christian Writers Guild President AD Sahil said. Union Council Naib Nazim Ch Shamoon Kaiser said: “Two chapters of the Holy Bible, calendars carrying portraits of Jesus Christ and booklets containing religious literature were reduced to ashes.”

He said that a mob of Christians tried to attack them, but the elders intervened to save their lives. While condemning the incident, a former district councillor condemned the incident but asked the Christians of the area not to take the law into their own hands. When contacted, Mian Chunnu Deputy Superintendent of Police Tikka-Khan refused to comment on the incident. staff report.

Oswald Mosley ‘was a financial crook bankrolled by Nazis’

Filed under: Books, Diverse, WW2 — limewoody @ 8:59 am

Oswald Mosley and his British Union of Fascists received huge sums of money from Hitler to fund their pre-war activities, a book to be published next month reveals.

 

The findings of Stephen Dorril, the author and historian, contradict the furious denials by Mosley himself and his wife Diana, a favourite of Hitler’s, that they had taken German cash.

The research comes at the same time as newly-released MI5 files reveal that the security services were convinced that Mosley was being supported by Hitler’s gold, but could not prove it.

In his book, Blackshirt, Mr Dorril shows that Mosley received money in cash, carried in by a man known as “Agent 18”, who was almost certainly Franz Wrede, a henchman of Josef Goebbels.

2005 Complete list of OCLC Member Libraries

Filed under: Books — limewoody @ 7:52 am

The OCLC Top 1000 Web site presents the top 1,001 works most widely held by libraries, with thematic sublists, sample cover art, “Find in a Library” links, comparisons to other lists, and download files. A key to entries is available.

First published in the fall of 2004, the list has been updated for 2005. Because it reflects the decisions of many libraries over many years, the list would not be expected to change much from one year to the next. And, in fact, this year’s list is substantially the same as last year’s. What changes there are in individual rankings are due as much to continuing refinements in the list-building methodology as to changes in the system-wide collection actually held by libraries.

This list, updated for 2005, contains the “Top 1000” titles owned by OCLC member libraries—the intellectual works that have been judged to be worth owning by the “purchase vote” of libraries
