A three year open sore within the human rights community will be closed this evening when Gita Sahgal officially launches her new organisation, the Centre for Secular Space, at Toynbee Hall. Sahgal will also be launching the group's first report, 'Double Bind: The Muslim Right, the Anglo-American Left, and Universal Human Rights' highlighting the ongoing scandal of the left's promiscuous embrace of radical Islamists.

Even an assassination attempt won't stop Lars Hedegaard from standing up for free speech   
A few days ago, a man tried to assassinate Lars Hedegaard in Copenhagen - an event Mark wrote about here and here, but about which the broader western media has been shamefully silent. Last summer, Mark had the honour of presenting Lars with a Defender of Freedom award at the European Parliament. Here is some of what Mark had to say:

Now two cops will be punished for their hijab Halloween costumes
