I have an article in Frontpage Magazine, thanks to Richard Poe for pushing me, and Jamie Glazov for giving me a chance. Also, check out the The American Conservative, I should have an article out in the current issue, though it might be next week (I can’t find it around here yet!). Thanks to Scott McConnell for giving me a shot to break into the ink & dead-tree world.
Update: This is from the Frontpage Forum:

Subject: American Women Can Learn Much From Islam
American women are disrepectful and speak, when they should listen.
Moslem women cover their face out of modesty. Likewise they remain silent out of modesty.
Update II: The piece I’ve got in The American Conservative dealt with Muslims, The Netherlands and a Dutch dude I met on the bus (Hi David!). Here is a report (audio file) from a recent issue of PRI’s The World on something called The Arab European League. Here is a snippet from an article by the President of the organization:
Yet by these standards, 11 September 2001 was an exceptional day in every sense. Against the natural order of things, in the Arab Ghetto in Brussels, people were smiling. They were out in the streets, exchanging glances with each other as they walked. Even total strangers would nod at one another; there was something different in the air that day. All that joyful display, because on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, a number of planes had crashed into buildings killing some 3000 people. Isn’t it sick, one might wonder, that such a tragic event could ever be perceived this way?
The article is kind of strange-the basic tone is that you brought 9-11 upon yourselves-but this guy is obviously worldly and urbane, European in a fashion, though he obviously rejects Europe and its ways. The funniest part for me is that the title is “Welcome to Adobe GoLive 5.” Oh, and most of the articles seem to deal with Israel, I don’t know what the European part of the oranization’s name indicates outside of the geographic locale of the members.
