A French court has annulled the construction permit for a mega-mosque in the southern city of Marseille, home to the largest Muslim community in France. The court ruling represents a major setback for proponents of the mosque, which has long been touted as the biggest and most potent symbol of Islam's growing place in France -- and Europe. The move comes as a French newspaper published the contents of a leaked intelligence report about the rise of Islam in Marseille. The document states that "even if the number of individuals who have been radicalized to the point of supporting the Jihadists is relatively low, Islamic fundamentalism has progressed to the point where it has won over the majority of the Muslim population" who live in the city and who now number over 250,000. The Administrative Tribunal of Marseille ruled on October 27 that the mega-mosque project would have to be cancelled because of failures to meet urban-planning requirements.

Rached Ghannouchi, leader of Tunisia's Ennahda Party and winner of Tunisia's first free elections, said the party was taking lessons from Turkey. "Turkey is a model country for us in terms of democracy," Ghannouchi said. "There are very good relations between Turkey and Tunisia, and I hope there will be a proper environment in the future where we could foster those relations." The Ennahda party vowed Wednesday to form a new government within a month as preliminary results gave it a commanding lead, but not a majority, in the Arab Spring's first election. As coalition negotiations got under way in earnest, the biggest secular party defended its negotiations with Ennahda, saying the Islamist party was neither the devil nor the Taliban.

Western media coverage of the recent massacre of Coptic Christians in Cairo, Egypt—in which the military killed dozens of Christians and injured some 300—was, as discussed earlier, deplorable. It merely repeated the false propaganda of the complicit state-run media, without checking facts. Since then, further proofs of the lies and brutality surrounding the massacre have emerged; they are compiled in the following report which consists of documented facts and videos from Arabic sources—many of which have not appeared in the Western media. This report documents: 1) the activities of the Supreme Military Council of Egypt and its de facto ruler; 2) the lies and duplicitous tactics of both the Military Council and its media mouthpiece, Egyptian TV; and 3) the anti-Christian sentiment pervading all aspects of this incident.

"100 Lashes If You Don't Die Laughing": Islam's War on Free Speech :: Hudson New York The Paris offices of the satirical French magazine Charlie Hebdo were destroyed in an arson attack after it "invited" the Islamic Prophet Mohammed to be its "guest editor." The November 2 firebombing attack took place just hours before the magazine's current issue -- titled "Sharia Hebdo" (a reference to Islamic law), and featuring a cartoon of Mohammed on its cover -- hit the news stands. The attack marks a serious escalation of a long-running Islamic war on free speech and expression in Europe. In recent years, Muslim immigrants and their multicultural supporters in Europe have used a combination of lawsuits, verbal and physical harassment and even murder to silence debate about the rise of Islam there.
