As part of my random, brief blogging for the evening, let me commend to your attention VictorDavis Hanson’s article reminding us (a) that Extremist Islam is making modern the worst barbarisms of the past and (b) that the Enlightenment is a fragile concept that can easily be overwhelmed through apathy and fear.
Also, a friend urged me to link to a 12 minute video previewing Obsession : Radical Islam’s War Against the West. My friend was right. It’s chilling and well worth watching, and I’ve finally got a link. This video and Hanson’s article together create a scary reminder of the precipice on which the West now stands, and the energy with which the forces of darkness are pushing against us.
