“The Project”

March 20, 2017 // 9 Comments

In 1993, Islamic terrorists attempted to destroy The World Trade Centre in New York for the first time.

In 2001, on the 11th September [...]

British Law and Sharia Law

March 19, 2017 // 32 Comments

It’s important to talk about the law and to clarify what we mean. If we say “the law” we tend to mean the law of the land. So if I’m in Britain and I say “the law”, I mean British Law, the law that governs Britain. Upon questioning about the presence of sharia law in the UK, the [...]

What enemy?

March 12, 2017 // 7 Comments

  The other day the defence minister Michael Fallon pointed out in a speech that the ‘enemy’ was Russia. As I understand it this was said to distinguish it from  the ‘real’ enemy which, of course, is ISIL or Daesh. In the age of fake news, it should be pointed out that this [...]
