Note: According to Islamic Scriptures, Islam's founder, Mohammed prophesized that one day Rome will fall to Islam.
...and did not Jesus Christ warn us to beware of false prophets? :)
Exactly. Jesus must have had Prophet Mohammed in mind.

Economic Freedom and Economic Growth

Irony: Former Commie countries teach the US an economic Lesson Once again, there is more evidence that economic freedom leads to success. Many of the former communist countries of Central and Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union have made enormous economic progress from the time they became free alm...

Re: Exit the United Nations?

A new honcho at UNESCO was just voted in. She's French, and promises to reform the organization. Apparently the two Arabs who had thrown their headgear in the ring split the Muslim vote. We'll see. The reality is that France is so far in the arms of Arabia that it is unlikely to reform the corrupt ...

Re: even when America wins it still loses.

I do not accept your ' one is as bad as the other ' analogy cassowary: if only because Iran is an already a well established state that usually behaves like one whereas IS (the aspirant Sunni caliphate) is more like a psychopathic cause that places no bounds upon itself in pursuit of its megalomani...

The reality is that it will take a massive defeat to change the minds of many Muslims.

I want to elaborate on realism in the Middle East. It is an unfortunate fact that the Palestinian leadership since the days of the Mandate are violently opposed to a Jewish state. It all began at the time of Amin al Husseini , the Mufti of Jerusalem and uncle of Yasser Arafat. https://upload.wikimed...
