Shariah law can't stop what it doesn't expect.

Damn Kids and Their Technology These Days

A little belated, but if you haven't already, be sure to follow Wayward Infidel on Facebook here. It includes a lot of minor updates I don't always take the time to post on the blog.

Also, what's up with all these natural disasters? Earthquakes in Haiti, Chile, China and smaller ones in SoCal. Tsunamis along the coast of Santa Barbara, and now that cloud of ash from the volcano in Iceland. Shit's getting spooky.

Evidence That MSU Planned to Disrupt Ambassador Oren

Big news.

This recent article
by Investigative Project on Terrorism just came out detailing a string of e-mails anonymously sent to UCI admin and law enforcement. The e-mails spell out in detail a painstakingly orchestrated plan to disrupt Ambassador Oren when he came to UCI on Feb 8th. UCI admin and police are currently working to check on the authenticity of the letters.

I'm not holding my breath to see the MSU get what they deserve- even in the face of this evidence. Still, let's give it time. Maybe UCI will finally surprise us.

Psychology of the MSU

This is an article I recently wrote exploring the psychology of the Muslim Student Union- your typical anti-Israel activist, as well.

By no means am I saying that's all there is to them. I may even do another piece exploring their mindset further. It was kind of a fun project, putting myself in their shoes. If a little freaky.

One correction I wish I had made before submitting it for publication...

I'm not 100% sure about the "defend, don't attack" method I espouse. I based it primarily on hearing what the common, uninvolved UCI student feels about the political tension on campus.

What I should have said: if rallying, protesting, organizing, etc. against Islamic extremism or related topics, do not organize "against" it. Rather, organize "for" something.

Organize for women's rights, gay rights, religious minority rights, etc. in the Muslim world.

Show that you're supporting something, rather than demonizing something else. People always, always, always respond better to a positive message than a negative one.

Why am I still up at this hour?
