It doesn't matter... socialism has stacked up a 100 million dead in the last century, corpses don't care if they were snuffed by nationalists or internationalists.

I always thought of the Sisters as iconographically leftwing, what with the star and all that. Then again, paraphrasing Groucho Marx, Eldo probably wouldn't join any party that would take him in. And good for him. Oppose all kind of organized totalitarism, no matter if it's from the left, the right ...

We do, however, have issues about the costs. We, as a family, were paying many hundred pounds per week for this care above and beyond her pensions. This in a country we think provides care from cradle to the grave. Same here (Germany). The state will pay but first they'll go for the person's funds,...

I think we can agree that this is rather bad judgment. But then again, there have been similar gaffes by US law enforcement officials in the past, so this isn't exactly a new development.

That really depends on what you mean by "Sharia law". Let's focus on the one that's being used as the basis of law in many Islamic countries today. Especially for family affairs, such as inheritance.

But if you read it in the context of the whole, it's clear that the message is, as the son you are responsible for looking after your sister. Therefore, let the son receive 1/3rd of his father's estate for himself (i.e. the same share that his sister gets) and another 1/3rd so that he may provide f...

Unless you're dealing with islam, in which case someone who calls himself muslim is deemed to represent the whole congregation and faith. Well, I don't know.

Well, I guess it's not debatable that even a relatively peaceful ideology can be turned into an excuse to exert violence, even if often that is purely psychological (just consider the brainwashing that many cults do). However, I think it is a lot harder to interpret an inherently violent ideology in...

Consider that the Moors ran most of Spain for 700 years (and managed not to persecute the other religions who were there at the time) and didn't seek to expand their empire beyond the Pyrenees. You must be joking. Yes, they were allowing Christians and Jews to stay alive -- as subjugated second-gra...

Do you see Christianity for what it is, based on the behaviours of extremists (the LRA, perhaps), paedophile priests, and men in funny hats telling the poor and hungry that curbing their reproductive habits is an offence in the sight of god, or do you (quite reasonably) conclude that a faith cannot...

The trouble with "us-and-them" thinking is that the lines drawn are always arbitrary. And if you "other" the them enough, then at least some of them will try to hit back. Funny you should say that, given that Islam "others" non-adherents like hardly anyone else does today. We didn't start this s**t...

Conclusion: I'd be a hell of a lot more worried about citizens than visa holders or refugees when it comes to acts of terror. You have to add situational awareness. In the past couple years, militants, also many from the West, went to join the 'Islamic State' in the Middle East while it was gaining...

Get real -- Trump is not persecuting Muslims. On the other hand, Muslim-ruled nations DO persecute non-Muslims when they have the power to do so.
