Now we know. Who woulda thunk?
In 2009, the last year for which statistics are available, more than 165,000 Christians were killed in Muslim countries because of their faith. [Remind me: What is the religion of peace?]
THERE'S A PARTICLE WAITING SOMEWHERE!
Science world buzzing over rumours the elusive 'God particle' has finally been found By Daily Mail Reporter
Last updated at 1:45 PM on 25th April 2011
The world's largest atom smasher is rumoured to have found the Higgs boson, the subatomic particle otherwise known as the 'God particle'.
The speculation is based on a leaked internal note, said to be from physicists at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a 17 mile-long particle accelerator near Geneva, Switzerland.
The rumours started when an anonymous post disclosed part of the note on Columbia University mathematician Peter Woit's blog, Not Even Wrong.
Awestruck: An amateur photographer takes a picture during an open day at the 17 mile-long LHC atom smasher in Switzerland
Breakthrough: An LHC image of a Higgs boson decaying into two jets of hadrons and two electrons
Discovery: The Collider Detector at Fermi lab is currently home to particle accelerator Tevatron
Nerve centre: Scientists have been analysing the bump data for more
than a year at the main Tevatron control room
Vast: The actual Tevatron is buried underground at the site in Illinois
Excited reporters called on God to enlighten us. God's secretary not answering calls.
How a Blog Post Caused the Trial Against Geert Wilders to Be Dismissed & What it Reveals About the Left's Pathology

Klein Verzet has the story here.
And a translation of the blog post here, reprinted below. Note in particular what leftists say behind closed doors about why they support the "Palestinian" cause:
Judge SchalkenOctober 20th, 2010
By Hans Jansen
I was invited for dinner on Monday, May 3rd 2010, by Bertus Hendriks. Bertus is the soul of the Palestina comity (NL). We're acquainted since 1963. Nobody can talk as beautiful about the suffering of the Palestinians as Bertus can.
After a couple of beers Bertus told me that he does not care so much about the Palestinan problem. It's all about, he explained to me, because I am 'a petty-bourgeois product of the past generation', about unmasking the global structures of exploitation by using the fate of the Palestinians.
Bertus thought it would be nice to talk a bit about Islam, and yes, also about the Wilders Trial. The next Thursday, May 6th, I would be heard in this trial as an expert witness and testify, if I understood correctly, about the contents of the Koran and Sharia, as far as applicable and relevant for the trial.

GEERT WILDERS FIGHTS BACK. AND THE BEHEADERS TRIED TO SILENCE HIM.
WILL THE BEHEADERS SILENCE YOU?
These were sharp men, brainy boys who had gone to the right schools, Harvard, Oxford, Sciences Po. Surely they could draw on the lessons of history.

What is so terribly interesting about bad governments is that they are as self-deceiving as they are deceptive. The straightforward clarity of Orwell's Oceania with its apparatchiks who knew exactly what the system was about and how evil it was, is woefully lacking in our own apparatchiks who assemble the most ridiculous plans out of the tissue paper of their own consensus and then goggle when it all comes apart on them. Whatever evil they harbor within themselves is outdone time and time again by their own stupidity.
Libya is a case in point. We are now loosely involved in a civil war in Libya on the side of the losing side. An engagement engineered by the brightest leaders the West had to offer. Forget dullards like Bush, Blair and Chirac-- the new generation weren't going to let themselves get caught out that way. These were sharp men, brainy boys who had gone to the right schools, Harvard, Oxford, Sciences Po. Surely they could draw on the lessons of history.
The Western elite rushed out of their ivory towers to cheer on what they dubbed the 'Arab Spring', but it was a false spring. Its proper historical placement was not with the revolutions of 1848, but the Egyptian and Iraqi coups of 1952 and 1958. The decline of British and French colonial influence toppled Middle Eastern monarchies. The fall of American influence, combined with the malign power of the left, engineered the overthrow of pro-American governments in Egypt and Tunisia, as it had in Iran.
There is no Arab Spring, only a Muslim Winter.
Western elites have been patting the Muslim world on the head, whispering soothing praises in its ears and hoping that it will reform and turn their lies into truths.
Open up the voting booths and every pile of rubble occupied by Bedouin barbarians with 7th century mores and 20th century weapons will become just like Norway. Democracy will save Muslims from themselves. And save us from them too.
So bad assumptions lead to bad policy. Western governments rushed to treat every large group of protesters as the will of the people. Chants and slogans took the place of the voting booth.
Democracy is a great slogan, but short on details. And ideology is a poor substitute for strategy.
How To Behave During an Islamic Massacre
By Andrew Klavan
Some tips on treating blood-crazed Islamic madmen with respect and tolerance.

Andrew Klavan is here again with some sensitivity training, absolutely free. When pastor-slash-attention-seeking-kook Terry Jones committed the crude and nasty act of burning the Koran, Muslims in Afghanistan responded with thoughtful discussions and debates about the unpleasant edges of free expression… Whoops, just kidding! In fact, they cut people's heads off! Sort of a different culture, huh. And you know what that means. Right! We have to learn how to treat blood-crazed Islamic madmen with respect and tolerance. So here are some tips…
Dear DHFC Supporter,
"First the Saturday people, then the Sunday people." This statement is used by Islamists to describe the order in which they will commit murder. First the Jews, the Saturday people. And then the Christians, the Sunday people. The global conquest envisioned by radical Islam depends on their disappearance.
As we celebrate Passover and Easter during this sacred week, it is worth thinking about the all-out religious war being waged every day against Jews and Christians. It may be an invisible war because the mainstream media – suffering from excess concern about Muslim sensitivities and from editors' and reporters' anti-religious bias – has virtually blacked it out, but it is one of the most violent conflicts in our world nonetheless.
Jewish communities in the Arab World that just a half century ago numbered in the millions have all been driven to brink of extinction. Either hunted down or forced to flee their ancestral homes, these communities that had survived for thousands of years have vanished from history. If not for the existence of Israel, the Jews who once lived there would have vanished too. Meanwhile, Christian communities' suffering in the Muslim world is worse than ever before. Scholars estimate that every three minutes a Christian is being tortured in the Muslim world. In 2009, the last year for which statistics are available, more than 165,000 Christians were killed because of their faith in Muslim countries.
