    To repeat, as on many previous occasions: this is not me. I write about Muslims quite a lot, but not like he does. See my profile for more.

    Most important story of 2017 is that the global poverty rate reached its lowest level ever. This will probably be the most important story of 2018 also. Happy New Year.
