Something rotten in Australia

The latest chapter in the War of the West:

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – A well-known Australian Muslim cleric has called for the beheading of Dutch anti-Islamic politician Geert Wilders, a newspaper said on Friday.

But it’s to be a peaceful beheading.

Given the fate of Theo Van Gogh and the numerous attempts on the lives of Muhammed-caricaturing cartoonists on the continent, Mr. Wilders’s bodyguards had better be good.

More rumblings

The upcoming Swedish elections could very well see the nationalist Sweden Democrats gain seats (albeit a small amount of them) in Parliament, which would be a stunning upset in a country not popularly associated with the term “nationalist party.” Of course, one doesn’t associate Sweden with high unassimilated Muslim immigrant demographics either, but that’s certainly the case in cities like Malmo, from which Jews have been fleeing in the face of open-air anti-Semitism.

One thing voters in Stockholm won’t be seeing on their TVs (but will no doubt have seen via the Internet) is this ad by the aforementioned nationalists, which was banned for being incendiary and offensive toward a certain religion. I never thought I’d say this, but Swedish politics just became interesting.
