Summary: 

Today is International Blasphemy Rights Day, when we show our solidarity with those who face persecution and violence for daring to criticize or question religion. But today we also mark another dark day in order to make a powerful difference.

On February 26, 2015, machete-wielding militants attacked humanist writers and activists Avijit Roy and Bonya Ahmed as they left a book fair in Dhaka, Bangladesh, leaving Roy dead and Ahmed seriously injured. It was not the first attack on a secularist in Bangladesh — in 2013 Ahmed Rajib Haider was killed, and Asif Mohiuddin seriously injured — but it was perhaps the highest-profile attack in recent years.

The leader of a notorious Muslim grooming gang who preyed on girls as young as 13, has lost a bid to have his convictions overturned after arguing the jury was part of a vast anti-Muslim conspiracy.

Shabir Ahmed, 63, is currently serving 22 years for preying on vulnerable teenagers on the street of Rochdale, plying them with alcohol and drugs, as well as for 30 child rapes on a young Asian girl he treated as a “possession” for more than a decade.

Summary: 

Fears of anti-Semitism are rising again in Europe. They have been stoked in particular by a growing number of verbal and physical attacks on Jews not only in France, but also in Britain, Belgium and elsewhere in Europe….A report commissioned by the European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia (EUMC) confirmed what had been widely asserted by French commentators: the perpetrators of the attacks have overwhelmingly been Muslim youths.

Summary: 

How long is this absurdity going to continue? Any official in Vienna who is trying to figure out this jihadi’s motive should be fired, but won’t be, because the people in charge are just as willfully ignorant and blinkered.

You want motive? Here it is. This is a war. A jihad. It is global. It is in Vienna. The Islamic State issued this call in September 2014:

The world's top female chess players have reacted with horror after being told they must compete at next year's world championship wearing a hijab.

Within hours of Iran being revealed as its host country, the prestigious event was plunged into crisis as it emerged players taking part face arrest if they don't cover up.

In response, Grandmasters lined up to say they would boycott the 64-player knock-out and accused the game's scandal-hit governing body Fide of failing to stand up for women’s rights.

 

Admin: Good for those Grandmasters

Summary: 

A high court judge has been slammed for giving special protection to a strict Islamic school which is trying to quash a highly critical Ofsted report, forcing the press to censor its name and location.

What has been labelled “School X” caters for children from ages four to 16 and separates boys and girls from age ten, for all lessons, lunchtimes, clubs and trips. Inspectors rated it as “inadequate”, claiming the enforced gender segregation policy made girls feel inferior.

Summary: 
  • Are French institutions sacrificing one freedom for another? Is equality between men and women being sacrificed to freedom of religion (Islam) to impose its diktats on French society?
  • If someone still does not realize that the Islamic dress code is the Trojan horse of Islamist jihad, he will learn it fast.
  • For years, "big brothers" have been obliging their mothers and sisters to wear a veil when they go out. Now that this job is done, they have begun to fight non-Muslim women who wear shorts and skirts -- no longer just in the sensitive Muslim "no-go zones" of the suburbs, where women no longer dare to wear skirts -- but now also in the heart of big cities.
  • "The law guarantees women, in all fields, same equal rights as men."
  • What people do not seem to know is that in the heart of Paris, a Muslim man can insult a woman for drinking a cola in the street and is served in stores first, before women.
  • Many people evidently still do not know that Islam is a religion and a political movement at war with the West -- and openly intent on subjugating the West. It must be responded to as such. The problem is, every time it is responded to as such, Muslim extremists run for cover under the claim of freedom of religion.
  • It is crucial for Western societies to start making a distinction between freedom of speech and incitement to violence, and to begin seriously penalizing attacks on innocents, as well as calls to attack innocents.

Summary: 

Jihad Watch recently ran a feature: “The price of converting to Christianity from Islam”. Listed among the high costs was the loss of the former Muslim’s family. Well, this story below illustrates an actual case of what happened to a 21-year-old Ugandan, Fatuma Baluka, who converted to Christianity and dared to go to church.After being accused of being an infidel, Baluka explained that she has become “an enemy” to her husband and that her Muslim parents “will not receive” her either.

Summary: 

Note that incitement can be applied to any law including trivial laws. For simplicity I am thinking here about only serious crimes such as inciting violence, rape, slavery and child abuse.

Summary: 

This post is an attempt to define a new legal framework for which types of incitement to commit crimes should be illegal, and which should not. My definition divides potential incitement into two main categories, DIRECT and INDIRECT.

Summary: 

In this post I am going to take a look at the 3 Abrahamic religions to decide whether any of their religious texts should be considered as direct and credible incitements to violence according to the framework that I set out in the previous post. In so many debates that I have listened to about whether these religions encourage violence, historical acts carried out supposedly in the name of each religion have been used as “arguments”. I regard these “arguments” as non-arguments because often the historical acts were carried out in opposition to the actual religious teachings, and so instead I am here going to focus purely on the religious texts.

Summary: 

Saudi Arabia has deported 27 Christians, including children, for praying and celebrating a church festival in a private home. The believers who are Lebanese Maronites, the largest Christian denomination in Lebanon, were arrested after religious police raided the home in Al Khafij, in the east of the country. Details have only just emerged of the arrest and those involved were charged with "un-Islamic prayer," according to EWTN News. The Christians said their prayers and celebrations were not an insult to Islam.

Summary: 

French Jews are fleeing the country at an unprecedented rate amid rising anti-Semitism and fears of more Isis-inspired assaults and mass casualty terror attacks. More than 8,000 Jews left France for Israel in 2015 – a rate far higher than anywhere else in Europe but consistent with what over the past few years has become the largest mass movement of Jews since the formation of Israel in 1948.

Summary: 

We seem to have reached the point in the UK where humour is becoming forbidden. In a worrying development, I see that Tim Burton of Liberty GB is going to be brought in front of magistrates in London in October on charges of ‘racially/religiously motivated harassment’ for cracking a joke at the expense of the mendacious grievance mongering Taqiyya artists of Tell Mama, the disgraced ‘anti Islamophobia’ organisation. So, what may you ask has Mr Burton done that warrants the taking up of court time in a busy London magistrates court. Well his ‘offence’ was to send in a joke application for a job with Tell Mama. The founder of Tell Mama and a host of other pro-Islam and pretend interfaith front groups, Fiyaz Mughal has come all over all ‘snowflake’ over Mr Burton’s jokey application for the post of researcher with Tell Mama and got the police involved. Mughal has managed to persuade the Metropolitan Police (who I believe should have far better things to do) to summons Mr Burton to the magistrates court on a racial/religious harassment charge.

Among the more nauseating spectacles of the Rotherham child rape scandal has been the squirming evasion and shameless attempts at face-saving by the various authority figures whose job it supposedly was to prevent such horrors happening.

Summary: 
  • The Islamic State document said that since the establishment of the Spanish Inquisition in 1478, Spain "has done everything to destroy the Koran." It said that Spain tortured Muslims, including burning them alive. Therefore, according to the Islamic State, "Spain is a criminal state that usurps our land." The document calls on jihadists to "reconnoiter airline and train routes for attacks." It also calls on followers to "poison food and water" with insecticides.
  • "We will kill any 'innocent' Spanish infidel we find in Muslim lands, and... whether we are European in origin or not, we will kill you in your cities and towns according to our plan." — Islamic State document, May 30, 2016.
  • "We will recover al-Andalus, Allah willing. Oh dear Andalus! You thought we forgot about you. I swear by Allah we have never forgotten you. No Muslim can forget Córdoba, Toledo or Xàtiva. There are many faithful and sincere Muslims who swear they will return to al-Andalus." — Islamic State video, January 31, 2016.
  • "Spain is the land of our forefathers and we are going to take it back with the power of Allah." — Islamic State video, January 7, 2016.
Summary: 

Admin: Sharia Watch does not in any way endorse the views of ISIS but it is important that people understand very clearly what we are up against. This is a small extract that gives a very clear and chilling flavour of the jihad mindset. This is ISIS in their own words, they definitely believe they are acting as directed by 'Allah':

"The clear difference between Muslims and the corrupt and deviant Jews and Christians is that Muslims are not ashamed of abiding by the rules sent down from their Lord regarding war and enforcement of divine law. So if it were the Muslims, instead of the Crusaders, who had fought the Japanese and Vietnamese or invaded the lands of the Native Americans, there would have been no regrets in killing and enslaving those therein. And since those mujahidin would have done so bound by the Law, they would have been thorough and without some “politically correct” need to apologize years later. The Japanese, for example, would have been forcefully converted to Islam from their pagan ways – and if they stubbornly declined, perhaps another nuke would change their mind. The Vietnamese would likewise be offered Islam or beds of napalm. As for the Native Americans – after the slaughter of their men, those who would favor smallpox to surrendering to the Lord – then the Muslims would have taken their surviving women and children as slaves, raising the children as model Muslims and impregnating their women to produce a new generation of mujahidin. As for the treacherous Jews of Europe and elsewhere – those who would betray their covenant – then their post-pubescent males would face a slaughter that would make the Holocaust sound like a bedtime story, as their women would be made to serve their husbands’ and fathers’ killers. Furthermore, the lucrative African slave trade would have continued, supporting a strong economy. The Islamic leadership would not have bypassed Allah’s permission to sell captured pagan humans, to teach them, and to convert them, as they worked hard for their masters in building a beautiful country. Notably, of course, those of them who converted, practiced their religion well, and were freed would be treated no differently than any other free Muslim.

......

All of this would be done, not for racism, nationalism, or political lies, but to make the word of Allah supreme. Jihad is the ultimate show of one’s love for his Creator, facing the clashing of swords and buzzing of bullets on the battlefield, seeking to slaughter His enemies – whom he hates for Allah’s hatred of them. A religion without these fundamentals is one that does not call its adherents to fully manifest and uphold the love of the Lord."
