A man looks at a burning bus after the assassination of Benazir Bhutto during her election campaign in Rawalpindi today, during protests in Lahore Pakistan 27 December 2007. Pakistani opposition leader Benazir Bhutto died Thursday after a suicide bomber targeted her vehicle following a election campaign rally in the city of Rawalpindi, government and police officials said. The former prime minister, who had survived a previous suicide attack two months ago after returning from exile abroad, died after being rushed to a local hospital following the attack, said Colonel Imran Yaqub, an Interior Ministry spokesman.

"In Indonesia, we can see up close the face of our enemies. Today's Jakarta Post tells how a Muslim dissident had his home burned to the ground by Islamist savages. That was in Jabung, East Java- his group's awful sins include not washing up for prayers and not bolging folk to visit graveyards.
The arson occurred while the dissenters were meeting local authorities and the ghastly MUI (state-sponsored Indonesian Clerics' Council) to discuss probelms, though it seems the local adminsitration had 'agreed' to close them down last week. Since the closure did not happen, the ignioramuses ran amok. Freedom is a joke in this archipelago, so let Europe wake up to the menace and stop letting primitives settle in civilised countries. Check out Morfiny Books World Review bulletin for regular updates on what goes on here in theEast Indies.."

From a former French Ambassador:
"The Inexorable Suicide of Europe."
I observe in passing that the village of Aulnay-sous-Bois, in Seine-Saint-Denis, has just experienced 4 days and nights of street viollence between gangs of "Afro-Maghrebins" (Muslims) and the police... At Villiers-le-Bel, Val d'Oise, it is even more serious. The police were attacked with rifles, thus the police were impotent. In order to put down these riots the military units specializing in urban fighting were necessary, particularly since stockpiles of war weapons from the Balkans are stashed in the immigrant suburbs.
In Germany there are 4 million Turks, and new arrivals every day. One German told me that Islamist Turks feel more at ease practicing their religious activities in Germany than in Muslim Turkey.
In Great Britain, 50 powerful Muslim associations control millions of faithful followers, mostly Pakistanis. In the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, beneath the smile of her gracious very Christian Majesty, there are now koranic schools where children can learn to become kamikazes and blow up automobiles.
In the Netherlands where there are many North African, Caribbean and Indonesian Muslims serious trouble is on the increase. The press writes that the situation is becoming "à la française", in other words: pillaged shops, torched cars, violent confrontations with the police.
