Outrage Of The Week – Time To Act
The most urgent piece of news is the horrible desecration planned for the WTC memorial. In case you haven’t heard about it try this, this, this, this, this, and this. I already wrote Mayor Bloomberg. We must act to stop this memorial as planned. To do that we should suggest a new committee composed of patriots to pick a proper memorial. William Bennett, Ed Meese, Tommy Franks, Thomas Sowell, Ralph Peters, … who else?

Moderate Islam ... where, when?
I’m currently engaged in a debate over the feasibility of moderate Islam. My interlocutors are Ed Hudgins, of the Objectivist Center and formerly of the Cato Institute, and Robert Bidinotto, of the Objectivist Center and longtime writer for Reader’s Digest. Can Islam change like Christianity? How different are the religions and their ability to come to grips with secular rational philosophy and a liberal democratic order?

Freedomist vs. Libertarian. In this corner we have …
R.J.Rummel has challenged isolationist libertarians to a debate to which Thomas L. Knapp has responded. Mr. Knapp publishes his online magazine, Rational Review and is active in the Libertarian Party. Having once debated Mr. Knapp, I can safely say that Prof. Rummel will have his work cut out for him. But he is clearly up to that challenge. Round I: Rummel!

Reports from around the world.
As always, kajando reminds us of the valiant freedom fighters in Iran. Fjordman tells us of the cultural problems in Scandinavia. Michael Yon reports from Iraq. Stephania reports from Italy.

On "Outrage of the Week":
When I first learned the truth about the WTC Memorial, I was incredulous. This desecration must be prevented! I'm going to start writing my letters. Every American has the right to object because the memorial is taxpayer funded.
