Believe it or not

These two news items, unfortunately, come from the United States.

First, the Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir is holding a recruiting conference on July 19 at a hotel in Chicago. Hizb ut-Tahrir is dedicated to overthrowing Western democracy; if you want some insights on how it operates, read Ed Husain's The Islamist. In the 1990s, Husain spent time working inside Hizb ut-Tahrir in London. (Thanks to the American Islamic Forum for Democracy.)

Second, here's a video taken at this year's Arab festival in Dearborn, Michigan. Note the open thuggery, and the clear message that Christians aren't welcome. (Thanks to Smooth Stone.)
