You know the old saying.

My former blog, The Hesperado, was mysteriously "removed" by Google and Magog.  And since I had other blogs linked to it (such as Resource for The Hesperado and Jihad Watch Watch), they were swallowed up into the wormhole too.  

Some six years of writing essays on the problem of Islam, and the related problem of the West ignoring the problem of Islam in a variety of ways (such as, for example, a major blog website yanking a person's blog because it was found by some belatedly zealous official -- probably at the instigation of a complainant with a deluded ax to grind against me (the Jihad Watch reader and anger-management-challenged defender of Robert Spencer "awake" comes to mind) -- to contain what their terms of service describes as "content that promotes hate or violence towards groups based on race, ethnicity, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, or sexual orientation/gender identity. For example, don't write a blog saying that members of Race X are criminals or advocating violence against followers of Religion Y") -- all vanished this morning, before I could swallow my last gulp of coffee.

So I made lemonade.
