Voices from the Resistance

I sometimes wonder whether the West at the beginning of the 21st century is mired in an ideological civil war between Westerners and post-Westerners.

Fjordman, from What Is the Nature of Multiculturalism? the Gates of Vienna, 9/13/06

For the bottom line is simple: if we don’t cherish our liberties with the fervor that the jihadists treasure their faith, we’ll lose.

Bruce Bawer, from 9/11, Five Years Later: a View from Europe, Front Page magazine, 9/14/06

Because of the religious derivation of the ideology that confronts us, analysts are generally reluctant to identify it properly or fully. They think that to speak of its roots would be bigotry or racism. But the jihadists themselves are doing their best to make sure we don’t forget the religious roots of their actions.

Robert Spenser, quoted in Jihad Watch, 9/11/06
