Keith Small obituary | Register | The Times
The scholar Keith Small took 21 of the earliest Koranic manuscripts available and applied to them the same tools used to examine first-century biblical texts and other ancient manuscripts. The results were groundbreaking.

He discovered that there was no evidence that the sixth-century Koran (traditionally believed to have been given to Mohammed) was an original text and that its extant manuscripts were edited versions of an earlier manuscript, now lost. The “uncreated, perfect” natu...

Europe: Destroyed by the West's Indifference?
Our media and intelligentsia are always on alert to defend everything coming from Islam, from women's veils to the "right not to be offended" by cartoons. The same establishment, however, lies in a coma when it comes to Christian symbols under attack.

William Donohue: Slicing the necks of animals is morally wrong, but not babies?
Is it morally acceptable to slash the neck of an animal? Is it morally acceptable to slash the neck of a baby? The New York Times waffles on the former but agrees with the latter.Balancing Animal Welfare and Religious Rites” is the title of an editorial in the January 9 edition of the New York Times. It would have been just as accurate to use “Rights” instead of “Rites,” but that would have cast the issue in terms of religious liberty, instead of anthropology, and that is not something the Times is ordinarily disposed to supporting.Which side does the Times embrace? It wimps out. It calls for a new “conversation on balancing” the two rights. It attributes its agnosticism to concerns that “right-wing politicians” have taken the animal-rights side because they are really anti-Jewish and anti-Muslim.The New York Times is an enthusiastic defender of partial-birth abortion, which, as National Right to Life describes, involves slicing and dicing the baby. To be exact, “The abortionist punctures the base of the baby’s skull with a surgical instrument” before using a “powerful suction machine.”If only unborn kids were cows. Then the New York Times wouldn’t be so energetic about slashing their necks.

Freed by court, Pakistani Christian woman still a prisoner
ISLAMABAD (AP) — Aasia Bibi, a Pakistani Christian acquitted of blasphemy, still lives the life of a prisoner, nearly three months after her release from death row, awaiting a final ruling on her fate.
She spends her days in seclusion for fear of being targeted by angry mobs clamoring for her death. In her hideout, she longs for her children who were taken to Canada for their safety.
Pakistani security forces guarding the 54-year-old Bibi prevent her from opening a window in her hiding place, let alone go outside, a friend said.
Meanwhile, the Supreme Court is weighing a petition by Islamist extremists and right-wing religious parties that rallied against her acquittal and demand her execution.
