The 10 Most Controversial Illustrations by Anti-Jihad Artist Bosch Fawstin


Since January, my friend Bosch Fawstin has been contributing illustrations to NewsReal Blog. Bosch’s work is so effective for three reasons: 1. It’s aesthetically pleasing. Bosch uses bold colors and sharp lines (or strong blacks in his non-colored images) to create pieces that leap off the page. 2. It’s intellectually complex. Usually you need to [...]

Ron Radosh’s Elegant Challenge to Imam Rauf’s Naive Supporters


Pajamas Media’s great historian and blogger Ron Radosh and I have clashed a bit on the nature of Islam and its potential for moderation but on the now-notorious Ground Zero Mosque we’ve found few areas of disagreement. And I’ve appreciated the subtle, precise approach that Ron has employed on the issue — different than the flamethrower [...]

At Tablet David Horowitz Embarrasses Daniel Luban


From Tablet yesterday, David Horowitz debated Daniel Luban on “Islamophobia” and the libelous allegation that the anti-Jihad movement is similar to anti-Semitism: When Daniel Luban published an essay in Tablet Magazine last week finding resonances between what he called Islamophobic opposition to the Park51 Islamic center and past anti-Semitism, one comment on the piece jumped out [...]

A Dog Who Found the Master’s Leg: The 10 Most Braindead Statements In Defense of the 9/11 Mosque


As the 9/11 Mosque controversy was beginning to heat up the metaphor I conceived of to describe the Left’s predictable response was that of the teenager too scared to go “all the way.” I argued that the Left was “dry humping” Islam.

The Nails-On-A-Chalkboard Narcissism of the Center-Left’s Anti-Anti-Islam Jihad


I’ve put up with the sound of nails on a chalkboard long enough. Amidst the debate surrounding Ron Radosh’s Islam post I noticed a familiar screech I’d heard before. In the comments at Roger Kimball’s response to Ron’s post: 17. John Guardiano Dear Mr. Kimball, Thanks for correcting the misspelling of my name for the [...]

Wage War on Islam if You Care About Muslims


Dear Ron, Your piece at Pajamas jumping into the discussion on Islam has the same fatal flaw as the “Center-Right” critics you unfortunately cite. This is 100% incorrect: “But are they correct when they shift the argument from opposing those who seek a radical Islamist agenda- imposition of Sharia law in the West- from most [...]
