A Pakistani apostate now resident in Spain wants the Spanish government to ban the Koran. From Gates of Vienna No Quran in Spain.
This is the plea of a refugee, “Imran Firasat,” who is aghast that those who rule his new home would consider giving the terror he fled a new crack at him by permitting it a foothold.
The West was once the place to which refugees fled; and to the United States most of all.
For what we permitted to happen to our country in the last few generations, we should be horsewhipped.
With the rise of the "Progressives" to power, it appears that that refuge is on the verge of disappearing.
What is wrong in the West? We are experiencing the consequences of ignorance and cowardice bred into the populace by the regressives hiding behind the progressive label. (Here’s an egregious example.)
It is not too late to confess our previous errors, to learn what we need to learn in order to form a meaningful resistive bloc, to look outside our limited selves for strength, and to act bravely.
It was not the specifics of his effort — the call to ban the Koran — that caught my attention.

You’ve got to remember what it’s like to be a man, to be a free man, and to live in freedom.
That’s what we’re losing. That’s the real critical issue.”
