A world with no room for the Gordons is a world that
will return to the sands.
--Closing line to the movie Khartoum
and a fitting epitaph for General Charles Gordon, "Khartoum Pasha," who

Battle of Omdurman (2 September 1898) marked the defeat
of the followers of the slave trader Mohammed Ahmed (1843-1885), also
known as the Mahdi ("Expected One"). "Born in Dongola province, he was

seek to place countries like the
United States and Israel on the same moral level as so-called societies
that stone women to death for "adultery" (which can include being

ISIS is forcing
Iraqi Christians to write this symbol (nun, for Nisrani or Christian)

Dark Age barbarians who are also menaces to peaceful Muslims. The
world, including the United Nations, needs to
ask whether Never Again means Never Again, or a meaningless slogan.

its cause dead than alive.
