Bjørn Lomborg om klimahysteri

Bjørn Lomborg: Dan Jørgensen sidder fast i Kyoto-fortiden

Interview af Mikael Bomholt Nielsen

”Hvis det ikke var alvorligt, var det jo komisk: Hvis EU gennemfører 2020-politikken, vil det koste 250 mia. dollar om året og reducere temperaturen med 0,05 grader. Får Dan Jørgensen sin vilje, og sætter reduktionen helt op til 30 %, vil det koste 400 mia. dollar om året, men kun reducere temperaturen til 0,06 grader; kun yderligere én hundrededel grad.” […]

England tillader shariasdomstole. Nu har baronesse Caroline Cox og biskop Michael Nazir-Ali lanceret en kampagne for at få dem afskaffet. Kampagnen hedder Equal and Free og der er lavet 4 små YouTube-videoer om den. Men først en artikel om initiativet:

New Bill to stop Sharia Law operating in the UK

June 8th, 2011

On 7 June 2011 Baroness Cox introduced a new Bill in the House of Lords intended to outlaw the use of Sharia law where it conflicts with English law. In proposing the new Bill she said:

“Equality under the law is a core value of British justice. My Bill seeks to preserve that standard. My Bill seeks to stop parallel legal, or ‘quasi-legal’, systems taking root in our nation. Cases of criminal law and family law are matters reserved for our English courts alone.

Michael Nazir-Ali: We must not give up in Afghanistan and let the Taliban return to power

Michael Nazir-Ali is Director of the Oxford Centre for Training, Research, Advocacy & Dialogue, and was formerly the Bishop of Rochester.

The death of Osama Bin Laden, whilst certainly a landmark in the struggle against extremism and terrorism, is also responsible for much facile optimism, even among senior politicians.  It has provided fresh oxygen for the “Little Englanders”, as indeed for “Monroe Americans”, who believe that the arch-terrorist’s passing has put a decisive end to the extremist threat to the West. Whatever lip service they may pay to a continued presence of advice and assistance in the region, at the back of their minds they believe that we should now withdraw our troops from Afghanistan and leave that benighted area to its own devices.

Let UK Muslims enjoy freedom

By Melanie Phillips, June 17, 2011

In both Britain and the US, there are now attempts to push back against the steady encroachment of sharia law. In Britain, a Private Members’ Bill has been introduced in the House of Lords by the cross-bench peer Baroness Cox to curb the increasing use of sharia courts to dispense family law and settle disputes in Muslim communities. This bill, which is being supported by secular groups and an Iranian and Kurdish women’s rights group, will require government support if it is to become law.

In the US, legislators in some 20 states are currently considering more than 40 bills that would ban or restrict the use of sharia law in their courts. Among many Jews, such moves are likely to engender an ambivalent or even hostile reaction. Such a response would be misguided and regrettable. For it arises from dangerously muddled attitudes in the Jewish community towards Muslims, sharia law and the proper place of Islam in British society.

Opdatering 5. juli 2011 – der har været demonstration i London, skriver Christian Today:

The protest in central London on Saturday was joined by Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali, a Pakistani Christian, and Dr Martin Stern, a Jewish Holocaust survivor and former medical student at Peshawar University.

It was organised by the British Pakistani Christian Association and was held to coincide with the one year anniversary of the arrest of Rashid and Sajid Emmanuel, two pastors shot dead outside a court in Faisalabad after being acquitted of blasphemy.

Islamofobi er noget vås

Why ‘Islamophobia’ is not a problem

by Richard Reeb – June 07, 2011

Muhammed Cartoon IconRecently David Horowitz, a former leftist who currently champions the cause of free speech for people of all political viewpoints, was denounced as “Islamophobic” following his speech at UCLA criticizing Hamas and the Palestinian Liberation Organization for murdering Israeli civilians. The 10-person student council there unanimously passed a resolution to that effect.

Horowitz is no stranger to controversy and heavy-handed attempts to suppress speech. As a self-described “Red-Diaper Baby” born to Communist parents, he was familiar with the Communist party’s resort to propaganda, agitation and violence to achieve its revolutionary aims. The radical approach that he later disavowed has now become the standard operating procedure for radical Arab and Muslim organizations which target anyone who opposes their agenda.

Spengler om Palæstina

Israel, Ireland and the peace of the aging

By Spengler – Jun 7, 2011

Sometimes, the best thing to do is nothing at all.

Logo Asia TimesA generation from now, the Palestinians will make peace with Israel, for a simple reason: they will grow up – literally. Palestinian Arabs comprise one of the fastest-aging populations in the word.

United States President Barack Obama was misinformed when he told the America-Israel Political Action Committee May 22 that “the number of Palestinians living west of the Jordan River is growing rapidly and fundamentally reshaping the demographic realities of both Israel and the Palestinian territories”.

In fact, Palestinian fertility on the West Bank has already converged on the Israeli fertility rate of three children per woman, if we believe the Palestine Ministry of Health rather than the Palestine Authority’s Statistics Bureau.

Egypten er på spanden – Niall Ferguson

The Revolution Blows Up

Egypt’s stock market is tanking and its rich are taking their money to Zurich. Will an economic plunge ruin the Arab Spring?

by Niall Ferguson – June 05, 2011

Logo Newsweek

I recently sat at the desk where John Maynard Keynes wrote The Economic Consequences of the Peace, his coruscating 1919 polemic against the Versailles Treaty. I asked myself what Keynes would be writing if he were with us today. I think the answer is The Economic Consequences of the Arab Spring.

The point of Keynes’s original tract was that the victors of the First World War were bungling the peace. The punitive reparations they were demanding of Germany, he argued, would plunge that country into an economic crisis. After that would come the political backlash.

Anti-Semitism on the Rise in Germany

by Soeren Kern – June 9, 2011

Logo Hudson New York

A highly-anticipated new report, “Anti-Semites as a Coalition Partner,” which examines the increasing anti-Israel activism of politicians belonging to the German Left Party (Die Linke), has sparked a debate over the rise of anti-Semitism disguised as anti-Zionism in post-modern Germany. The study has been welcomed for drawing attention to the re-emergence of anti-Semitism in public discourse in Germany, and has even triggered a debate about Israel bashing in the German parliament.

Excerpts of the study, subtitled “The Left Party: Between Anti-Zionist Anti-Semitism and the Wish to Govern,” were published by the center-right Frankfurter Rundschau newspaper on May 19. The report says: “A power has established itself within the parliamentary spectrum of the Left Party, which tolerates anti-Semitic positions…. Our thesis is that anti-Zionist anti-Semitism has become the dominant consensus position within the German Left Party.”

The erosion of European Jewry

By Isis Leibler – June 8, 2011

In many communities, Jewish leaders are in a state of denial, insisting that the level of anti-Semitism is exaggerated.

Even if the flag of Islam ultimately flies over Europe and most Jews assimilate or emigrate, a Jewish presence comprising principally of enclaves of ultra-Orthodox Jews is likely to prevail, especially in the main cities.

Curb Your Dogma

Apostate David Mamet confronts the secular religion of liberalism.

Stefan Kanfer – 8 June 2011

The Secret Knowledge: On the Dismantling of American Culture, by David Mamet (Sentinel, 256 pp., $27.95)

Logo City Journal

“I had my first conversation with a conservative at the age of 60.” On the face of it, that claim seems absurd: David Mamet must have dwelt in a hermetically sealed environment for six decades. But the playwright/director is telling the truth; he’s spent his career in show business, an ecosystem as airtight as academia.

Unlike so many of his colleagues, however, Mamet began to question the shibboleths and doctrines he had long taken for granted. In four years, the 64-year-old moved inexorably from left to right, like the hour hand on a clock. In The Secret Knowledge, his latest collection of essays, he confesses that “I examined my Liberalism, and found it like an addiction to roulette. Here, though the odds are plain, and the certainty of loss apparent to anyone with a knowledge of arithmetic, the addict, failing time and time again, is convinced he yet is graced with the power to contravene natural laws.” But there was a profound difference; the gambler hurts primarily himself. “The great wickedness of Liberalism, I saw, was that those who devise the ever new State Utopias, whether crooks or fools, set out to bankrupt and restrict not themselves, but others.”

Applied Ethics

Christopher Caldwell | June 9, 2011

In Search of Lost Meaning: The New Eastern Europe by Adam Michnik – University of California Press, $29.95

In March 1968, when he was twenty-one years old, Adam Michnik had a copy of Forefather’s Eve, a play by the nineteenth-century poet Adam Mickiewicz, on his bedside table. He wound up reading it in jail. A production of the play in Warsaw had fired wild hopes among students, who saw in its anti-Tsarist themes a reflection of their own predicament under Communism, and saw in Mickiewicz a model dissident. Michnik led protests when the government ordered the play closed, and that was the beginning of a heroic career. He helped found the Workers’ Defense Committee, out of which grew the Solidarity movement that rose against Polish Communism through the 1980s and eventually toppled it in 1989. His book The Church and the Left laid the groundwork for an anti-Communist alliance between students, Catholics, and workers. He has edited Poland’s paper of record, Gazeta Wyborcza, since its founding in 1989. Reading Mickiewicz behind bars, Michnik now writes, “helped us realize our place in the long chain of Polish generations, all of which had to serve an apprenticeship in ‘fortresses and prisons.’”
