Summary: 

A WOMAN will be blinded in one eye in Iran after a judge ruled she should suffer an ‘eye for an eye’ punishment under Sharia Law. The country’s Supreme Court made the decision after the defendant, who has not been named, carried out an acid attack which left her victim without sight. The woman threw acid in the face of her victim, Sima, in Dehdasht a city in the south-west of the Middle East country, two years ago, according to the Iranian news agency Tasnim. Head of the country’s judiciary Majid Karami said: “The sentence to blindness in one eye, payment of blood money [compensation], and

Summary: 

For over a decade, Europe’s struggle to successfully integrate its Muslim population has been evident. But throughout the years a new and distinctly European phenomenon arose, which is as significant as it is underreported: Gangster Islam. It entails the conflation of the seemingly a-religious street culture of youths from a Muslim background on the one hand, and elements of the Islamic religion on the other. The German publication Der Spiegel once very briefly touched on the matter, a Danish documentary highlighted Islamic extremists recruiting gang members from a Muslim background, and a Dutch terrorism expert pointed out how Syrian returnees were more likely to live a life of crime in order to finance the jihad, than to actually commit a terror attack.

This is how Sheikh Abu-Bakr Naji, the late theoretician of the Sunni version of the Islamo-apocalyptic movement, put it: “No one should feel safe without submitting, and those who refuse to submit must pay a high price. The aim of our movement is to turn the world into a series of wildernesses in which only those under our rule enjoy security.”

The sheikh’s neo-jihadi theory was explained a decade ago in his magnum opus “Governance in the Wilderness” (“Edarat al Tawwahush”). The book rejected al Qaeda’s theory of war based on the assumption that “the infidel” would succumb to Islamic rule with a few spectacular attacks such as 9/11 against New York and Washington. The sheikh further examines what he calls “the five schools of jihad” to reveal their inadequacies.

Summary: 
  • "It is a shame to deny this taboo, namely that in the Arab families in France, and everyone knows it but nobody wants to say it, anti-Semitism is sucked with mother's milk." — George Bensoussan, historian of Moroccan heritage, on trial for saying that.

  • "When parents shout at their children, when they want to reprimand them, they call them Jews. Yes. All Arab families know this. It is monumental hypocrisy not to see that this anti-Semitism begins as a domestic one. " — Smaïn Laacher, French-Algerian professor of sociology.

  • This witch-hunt against Bensoussan is symptomatic of the state of free speech today in France. Intellectual intimidation is the rule. Complaints are filed against everyone not saying that Muslims are the main victim of racism in France.

  • In December 2016, Pascal Bruckner, a writer and philosopher, was also brought to court for saying: "We need to make the record of collaborators of Charlie Hebdo's murderers." He named the people in France who had instilled a climate of hatred against Charlie.

  • Muslims, especially young Muslims, as the new revolutionary labor class. It did not matter that most of them were not working: they were "victims".

  • "Anti-racist vigilance became a gag rule... Anti-racist organizations are in the denial of 'Muslim racism.'" — Alain Finkielkraut, philosopher and academic.

Summary: 

An eight-year-old girl balances on one foot to point out the bullet wound on the other, a hallmark of the snipers sitting in the hills around us. Villages have been persuaded to keep records of the attacks to show anyone who cares. One of the very few from outside who does — Britain’s own Baroness Cox — came here recently. Her vehicle was spotted by the Fulani, who came out hunting for her and only just missed their target. Because of attacks like this, almost nobody comes. Just one more reason why these atrocities do not attract the West’s attentions.

The task of chronicling the outrages continues nonetheless. Village leaders keep ring-binders of their dead. Some have photo-graph albums of what their villages have been through: old women set alight; young women raped and shot; babies hacked to death.

Summary: 

This passage raises several questions of translating extreme vetting in practice: How does one distinguish foreigners who "do not bear hostile attitudes toward it and its founding principles" from those who do? How do government officials figure out "those who would place violent ideologies over American law"? More specifically, given that the new procedures almost exclusively concern the fear of allowing more Islamists into the country, how does one identify them?

 

Summary: 
  • Swiss authorities are currently investigating 480 suspected jihadists in the country.

  • "Radical imams always preached in the An-Nur Mosque... Those responsible are fanatics. It is no coincidence that so many young people from Winterthur wanted to do jihad." — Saïda Keller-Messahli, president of Forum for a Progressive Islam.

  • Switzerland is the answer to those who claim that Islamic terrorism is reserved for those countries that have participated in operations against ISIS or other Muslim terror organizations. Switzerland has done neither, yet its flag figured among sixty other enemy flags shown in an ISIS propaganda video.

  • "Huge sums of money from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait and Turkey are flowing to Switzerland... There is a whole network of radically-oriented mosques in Switzerland. The Muslim World League is behind it.... The network is a hub for Salafists. The Swiss authorities make a big mistake of not looking into the mosques." — Saïda Keller-Messahli.

  • There are around 70 Turkish mosques financed directly from Turkey through the Diyanet Foundation in Switzerland.

  • The Swiss government appears to give Qatar, one of the primary propagators of Wahhabi Salafism in the world today, extremely special treatment.

Harrowing images have captured the moment a Muslim woman screams and cries in pain as she's forced to endure 26 lashes for allegedly having sex outside of marriage . The Indonesian woman and the man she was accused of having sex with were brought up on a stage and caned in front of a crowd of people. In Sharia law , sex outside of wedlock is strictly forbidden and those accused face severe punishments.

Summary: 
  • Secularism may be accepted in a Christian society but it can never enjoy a general acceptance in an Islamic society." — Yusuf al-Qaradawi.

  • The acceptance of a legislation formulated by humans means a preference of the humans' limited knowledge and experiences to the divine guidance: "Say! Do you know better than Allah?" (2:140).... For this reason, the call for secularism among Muslims is atheism and a rejection of Islam. Its acceptance as a basis for rule in place of Shari'ah is downright riddah [apostasy]...." — Yusuf al-Qaradawi.

  • We Muslims believe that Allah is the sole Creator and Sustainer of the Worlds.... If they do not [observe His injunctions and to judge according to them], then they commit kufr [unbelief], aggression, and transgression." — Yusuf al-Qaradawi.

  • There have never been any effective democracies in the Islamic world.

  • The idea that human beings can replace God as legislators is obnoxious to classical Islamic thought and to modern Islamist convictions. Men and women do not choose how to live: God has been there first.

  • Several of the ECFR's own pronouncements indicate an unwillingness to compromise with European norms.

  • "The Shari'ah is for all times to come, equally valid under all circumstances. The Muslim insistence on the immutability of the Shari'ah is highly puzzling to many people, but any other view would be inconsistent with its basic concept." — Yusuf al-Qaradawi.

Summary: 

A body of Muslim clerics in Mauritania has called for the death sentence to be carried out against a blogger convicted of apostasy in 2014. Mauritania, an Islamic republic, has not applied a death penalty since 1987. The Forum of Imams and Ulemas says Mohamed Ould Cheikh Ould Mkhaitir, 29, should be executed despite the fact that he repented for an article criticising Mauritania's caste system. The clerics want him to be killed according to the "law of God".

This article provides statistics and lists the many anti-Semitic references made in Islamic scripture and by early and modern scholars, and in doing so it also discusses anti-Semitism and its place within orthodox Islamic theology.

Summary: 

Migrants streaming into Europe from the Middle East are bringing with them virulent anti-Semitism which is erupting from Scandinavia to France to Germany. “I don’t think it is the 1930s, I don’t see boxcars arriving,” said Ira Forman, Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism at the US State Department. “But the smaller Jewish communities will disappear” in far-flung places such as Norway, Sweden and Greece. Some of these communities have existed for more than 2,000 years. While all of the incoming refugees and migrants, fleeing Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and other Muslim lands, may not hold anti-Jewish views, an extremely large number do — simply as a result to being raised in places where anti-Jewish vitriol is poured out in TV, newspapers, schools and mosques.

Summary: 

Today, our analysis of the ICM survey of British Muslims for Channel 4 and Juniper Television shows that the gradual buildup of understanding and friendship between Britain’s Jews and Muslims has been utterly eclipsed by growing antisemitism amongst British Muslims. On every single count, British Muslims were more likely by far than the general British population to hold deeply antisemitic views. It is clear that many British Muslims reserve a special hatred for British Jews, rating Jews much less favourably than people of other religions or no religion, yet astonishingly British Muslims largely do not recognise antisemitism as a major problem.
