Gates of Vienna News Feed 6/25/2011

Gates of Vienna News Feed 6/25/2011The news feed is sparse tonight. One reason is that the Italians seem to be on vacation. It’s also rumored that Fjordman took a nap, which may have impacted our coverage.

The most entertaining story concerns cloned camels in the United Arab Emirates. As Vlad headlines it: “Muslims use cloning technology to cheat at camel racing”.

To see the headlines and the articles, open the full news post.

Thanks to Fjordman, TV, and all the other tipsters who sent these in.

So what exactly is Baroness Warsi's point then? She agrees that one can be an 'extremist' and an 'Islamist' without being a terrorist, i.e. employing violent means to achieve your ends.

Which, so far as I can make, is pretty much what David Cameron said. And the government doesn't want to give the taxpayer's money to such people. (Not any more, anyway.)

So why did she have to stick her oar in? Why resort to making ad hominem remarks about Melanie Phillips? Because she has no real answer to the points she makes about her? Would the Baroness think it appropriate for people to start calling her 'Wacky Warsi' after her mealy-mouthed, utterly pointless, get me in front of the cameras, remarks?

Yorkshirewoman Baroness Warsi, more British and conservative than the council housed indigenous single mother and offspring on welfare - this is British conservatism.

Baroness Warsi and the islamo mimeme of the British establishment and conservative politics is the true face of British conservatism.
