A miscellany

Or at least a collection of items generally relating to Islam and Islamophobia.

First up, Inayat Bunglawala on the recent attack on an East End (of London, that is) priest which has been seized on by Mel Phillips and others as an excuse for more whining that we're under attack from militant Islam. To Mel and the rest, I have two words to say: bollocks, and Buckfast.

Draught Jihad.

(And yes, I know it was actually vodka the London assailants got smashed on. That's because they were soft Southerners with no understanding of the proper nuances and subtleties of bevvy-fuelled battery such as they might learn in Glasgow or Leith.)

Then Noah Feldman in the New York Times has a great piece on Shariah law Why Shariah? It's quite lengthy but worth persevering with.
