Jihad Watch, Dhimmi Watch

An interesting web site from another Tarheel graduate. Robert Spencer's works are an hosest look at Islam in its history, its sources, and current expressions. This web site, Jihad Watch, is described as follows:
Because the West is facing a concerted effort by Islamic jihadists, the motives and goals of whom are largely ignored by the Western media, to destroy the West and bring it forcibly into the Islamic world -- and to commit violence to that end even while their overall goal remains out of reach. That effort goes under the general rubric of jihad.
The associated blog, Dhimmi Watch is also worth a look. Here is the description:
Dhimmitude is the status that Islamic law, the Sharia, mandates for non-Muslims, primarily Jews and Christians. Dhimmis, "protected people," are free to practice their religion in a Sharia regime, but are made subject to a number of humiliating regulations designed to enforce the Qur'an's command that they "feel themselves subdued" (Sura 9:29). This denial of equality of rights and dignity remains part of the Sharia, and, as such, are part of the law that global jihadists are laboring to impose everywhere, ultimately on the entire human race.
The secular talking heads in America and the West must wake up to the issues involved. Pluralistic tolerance of an intolerant, sword bearing religion, will be disaster for free nations. Eyes are on Europe, with its swelling Islamic societies...what happens there will be a great import to the world. For Europe has not an Aquinas to refute Muslim ideas, nor a Charles Martel to beat back the hoards...Many European cultures have lost their will to reproduce their own kind - biologically, spiritually, ideologically...is there hope to thwart the Islamization of Europe?
