Read his last paragraph.

The influential neo-conservative monthly magazine Commentary has discovered that Ontario is considering introducing Sharia law as a "choice" for Muslims in domestic disputes, under the Arbitration Act.

This is being justified on grounds of tolerance and equality under the Canadian Charter of Rights.

I often say Americans are losing their ability to discern right from wrong.

I think it's true.

But if you want to see what an advanced state of moral relativism looks like, if you want to know where knee-jerk political correctness leads, if you want to get an idea of how the mental illness known as "progressive thought" can spread through an entire country, if you want to know where we're headed, look north, my friend.

This is evidenced by all kinds of pathological displays in Canada, a lovely nation I have visited frequently in recent years, a nation still with millions of people who know better than their federal government and decadent cultural institutions. You can see it in the country's embrace of same-sex marriage, in the rampant anti-Semitism, in the thought control of its "hate speech" codes, in its phony brand of multiculturalism, in its European-style appeasement of evil ideologies.

Fee for tipsters eyed -- PEOPLE WANTING TO SNITCH ON ILLEGALS CAN PAY $13 TO U.S. WEBSITE March 8, 2005, Tom Godfrey, Toronto Sun

CANADA CUSTOMS and Immigration officials are looking into a U.S. website that allows cyber-surfers to pay $13 to turn in illegal immigrants and their bosses for arrest. Front-line officers say a similar site in Canada could help them round up the estimated 30,000 illegal immigrants or fugitives who police estimate are hiding in Ontario alone. [. . . . ]

March 8, 2005 -- Before the case of Lynne Stewart, the radical lawyer and now convicted accessory to terrorism, disappears from view, note should be taken of one of her more prominent financial backers.

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, for example, once declared, "We need people like George Soros, who is fearless and willing to step up when it counts."

Even when it is terrorist sympathizers and accessories like Lynne Stewart that he's stepping up for, it seems. [. . . . ]

"No to terrorism! No to Baathism and Wahhabism!"

The Foreign Face of Iraqi Terrorism Stephen Schwartz, Weekly Standard, March 8, 2005

For months, a behind-the-scenes, seldom-mentioned debate has raged in the West, over the origins of the "foreign fighters" attacking the U.S., coalition, and local anti-jihadist forces in Iraq. Some, including Saudi dissidents like Ali al-Ahmed of the Saudi Institute and myself, have suspected Iraq's dangerous southern neighbor, the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, of being the main source.

March 7, 2005 -- 'LET'S do the Salsa!" is one of the refrains chanted by Lebanese demonstrators who have vowed to occupy the streets of Beirut until Syria ends its occupation of their country. But the Salsa they are referring to is not the Brazilian style of sexy dancing. It refers to the Syria Accountability and Lebanon Sovereignty (Restoration) Act (SALSA) — passed by Congress over a year ago, and seen as a signal that the Bush administration was determined to extend its quest for status quo change in the Middle East beyond Iraq into the Levant.

And Lebanon's Cedar Revolution — while far from complete — could, and must, become a prelude to the liberation of Syria from half a century of despotic rule. [. . . . ]

Take, for example, the case of Irshad Manji. A self-identified “Muslim lesbian,” she wrote the book, “The Trouble With Islam.” In her book, she calls for the reformation of Islam. She also states, “Muslims need to change their anti-Semitic and anti-female beliefs.” She accuses Muslims of being backward and accuses the Arabs of being the colonizers of Muslims.

Now the question arises of who has been responsible for her sudden rise to fame. She regularly debates on Canadian television, and she has her own program called “Queers Television.” Two leading magazines describe her as a “Feminist for the 21st Century” and a “Leader for Tomorrow.” She is being projected all across the media in North America.

Burned Alive : A Victim of the Law of Men -- by Souad

U.S. targets spy services abroad Bill Gertz, THE WASHINGTON TIMES, Mar. 6, 05, via the blog, Winds of Change

COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- The Bush administration has adopted a new counterintelligence strategy that calls for "attacking" foreign spy services and the spy components of terrorist groups before they can strike, a senior U.S. intelligence official said yesterday.

National Counterintelligence Executive Michelle Van Cleave said in a speech here that the past policy of waiting for intelligence threats to emerge "ceded the initiative to the adversary."

"No longer will we wait until taking action," Miss Van Cleave said during a conference hosted by the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University. "To meet the threat, U.S. counterintelligence needs to go on the offensive, which will require major but achievable changes in the way we do business." [. . . . ]
