“Above all else, it is important to make clear to our own people and to theirs, that we have borders and nations for a reason. That if foreign nations and peoples would like to use force to tell us what movies we can make, then we will use force to tell them what protests they can have, and that in a contest of force, we will win.
It is time for a new way, a way in which Muslims will no longer have to learn about America and Americans will no longer have to learn about Islam, where we will give up on winning each other’s hearts and minds, and stick to watching each other’s property lines. That is the argument that needs to be advanced in the face of Obama’s catastrophic Arab Spring failures and the alternative to it is four more years of terror and appeasement.”

While Maureen Dowd warns that the neo-conservatives are coming back, an event surely worse than the siege of American embassies and the murder of American ambassadors, she can rest her head easy on that account. The neo-conservatives died in the siege of Benghazi, much like Mubarak they are still around, but completely irrelevant in the way that most ideas are once they lose their meaning.
Dowd would know better than to celebrate the death of neo-conservativism, if she understood what that really meant, beyond the shadowy menace that her dinner party guests tell her about before the main course is served.

In the Middle East, neo-conservatives offered a middle ground between appeasement and belligerence that blended Cold War politics and Third World democracy outreach. The ideas that made so much sense when former liberals were confronting the nightmarish repressive powers of the Soviet Union met their end in the Middle East for reasons that neither they nor their ideological enemies can explain.

The David Horowitz Freedom Center is pleased to announce the publication of Spring Fever: The Illusion of Islamic Democracy, by bestselling author and commentator, Andrew C. McCarthy, Executive Director of the Philadelphia Freedom Center, our East Coast branch.

McCarthy describes Spring Fever as “an alternative way to understand what is happening in the Middle East, an antidote to the delirious ‘Arab Spring’ narrative.” It shows that Islam is a culture and civilization distinct from and hostile to the West, and that far from being a fringe ideology, radical Islamic supremacism is the dominant interpretation of Islam in the Middle East and the driving force behind the anti-democratic events that have occurred there in the last two years, particularly the recent attacks on U.S. embassies and the murder of U.S. personnel.

Andrew McCarthy is recognized as one of the nation’s preeminent authorities on national security, law-enforcement, and the domestic threat posed by radical Islam. He is a former attorney for the Justice Department’s Southern District of New York, best known for leading the successful prosecution against Omar Abdel Rahman, the “Blind Sheikh,” who masterminded the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

Andrew’s first New York Times bestseller was Willful Blindness: A Memoir of the Jihad (Encounter Books, 2008), a critically acclaimed account of the Blind Sheikh investigation. His next book, The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America (Encounter Books, 2010) centered on the Muslim Brotherhood’s “civilization jihad” against the West, its entrenched and expanding network of groups and individuals of influence; and its collusion with the hard Left in an ongoing assault against America’s liberty culture.

Spring Fever is being published as an original e-book to capture the urgency of breaking news in the Middle East and to capture too the domination, happening on the ground and in real time, of the “Arab Spring” movement by the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist groups.

As Director of the Philadelphia Freedom Center, McCarthy administers its popular speaker series, its campus programs including this year’s Islamic Apartheid Week, and its publications. He also writes columns and blogs for FrontPageMag.com.

Since our founding, America has promoted personal responsibility, the dignity of work and the value of education. Those values made our nation the hope of the earth and our economy the envy of the world.

Efforts that promote hard work and personal responsibility over government dependency make America strong. When the economy is growing and Americans are working, everyone involved has a shared sense of achievement, not to mention the basic sense of pride that comes with the paycheck they earn.

However, over the past four years, those kinds of opportunities have been in short supply. We’re experiencing the worst recovery since the Great Depression. Unemployment has been above 8% for 43 straight months; 47 million Americans are on food stamps. Nearly one in six Americans now live in poverty.

Under President Obama, we have a stagnant economy that fosters government dependency. My policies will create a growing economy that fosters upward mobility.

Government has a role to play here. Right now, our nation’s citizens do need help from government. But it is a very different kind of help than what President Obama wants to provide.
My experience has taught me that government works best when it creates the space for individuals and families to pursue success and achieve great things. Economic freedom is the only force that has consistently succeeded in creating sustained prosperity and lifting people out of poverty. It is why our economy rose to rival those of the world’s leading powers — and has long since surpassed them all.

The Emerging Islamic Challenge by HERBERT LONDON


As the winds of Islamism blow across North Africa yielding unsettling horror, the American version of Neville Chamberlain sits in the White House, incapable of real action, but immersed in rationalization. Yes, the president did repudiate State Department moral equivalence (i.e. “offensive” film equals justifiable homicide). But he is inert, a model of confusion.

For months, Americans were told that the Arab Spring would, in time, produce democratic sentiments. In fact, the Arab Spring has led to elections and those elections have led in turn to Islamization. Islamic democracy – which so many naïve journalists wish to embrace – is an oxymoron. Islam shapes every aspect of the Middle East and its essence is totalistic. The idea that every individual yearns for personal expression is a chimera borne out by terrorists who shun liberty.

Can there be any justifiable explanation for the wanton slaughter of our Libyan ambassador and his colleagues? When human rights are trumped by religious fanaticism, the bonds of civil order are in question. According to the Islamic laws of blasphemy, any criticism of Mohammed or even alleged criticism warrants a violent response. A toxic brew of violence, Western innocence and guilt and complicit state governments that avert their gaze to the murders has driven the Middle East to massive brutality.

Samuel Huntington wrote about the clash of civilizations because he realized Islam, as presently practiced, cannot be compatible with basic Western ideals. The problem is that the State Department and many well meaning, but misguided individuals don’t believe it. Surely the attack on the U.S. Embassies in Egypt, Yemen, Libya should offer some concern that liberal assumptions are not compatible with Islam.

Despite a belief in ecumenism, the United States is learning a harsh lesson: the revolutions in the Middle East are not led by Washington and Adams seeking independence and individual rights. While scholars of Islam often contend the religion can change from within so that it is harmonized with Constitutional principles, there isn’t the slightest fragment of evidence that this is actually the case.
