The number of girls in England who have experienced or are believed to be at risk of female genital mutilation (FGM) has more than doubled in a year, according to assessments by council social workers. Analysis of government figures shows that FGM featured in 1,960 social work assessments in 2017-18 – more than twice the 970 cases reported in the previous year.
Children have been performing sexual favours in return for new trainers, gifts and alcohol, Ilford police confirm. Around 100 Met officers along with outreach workers and immigration officials descended on Ilford town centre last week to disrupt criminal activity and raise awareness about sexual exploitation. The victims are from diverse backgrounds, including middle-class families and children in the care system and some residents have moved neighbourhoods to remove their children from the exploiters clutches. Det Insp Laura Hillier said there is a preconception that older
What do you do if companies, butchers, supermarkets etc won't tell you what is slaughtered to Halal/Kosher methods? How can you as a non-Jew/Muslim make an informed choice?
I find it ironic that the most common excuse for selling unlabelled/unidentified Halal/Kosher meat/poultry is that just because they didn't ask for it to be Halal they don't feel they have any obligation to label it as such! Why don't they just ask for it not to be Halal/Kosher?
As we saw in the Asia Bibi case, the inconsistency of accusations of blasphemy does not count: what counts is the accusation itself that provokes riots, excesses and lynchings. We are assured that there was no blasphemy on the part of the Christian Sawan Masih, but a fight after drinking with his "friend" Muslim ...
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shockingly reveals the honest truth about the war taking place today with Gaza and around the world. Other world leaders will hate that he said this but he said the truth. While the rest of the world is still in denial, PM Netanyahu wastes no time in defining today’s war around the world as a religious war with Islam. No Western leader wants to admit that, but PM Netanyahu says it, and boy does he say it. In response to a question from a journalist during a Q&A session, PM Netanyahu just laid the truth right out there.
ONE of Britain's largest halal slaughterhouses is being investigated over claims of animal cruelty. Undercover filming reportedly shows a worker repeated hacking at the necks of sheep with a knife as they pass on the conveyor belt.
This study provides an outline of the religious doctrine of taqiyya or dissimulation in Sunni Islam, drawing on Qur,anic commentaries, hadith compilations, legal manuals, and ethical treatises. Moriscos and the North African jurists who advised them had access to discussions of taqiyya and the closely connected legal dispensation of coercion (ikrah) through these sources, many of which were wellknown in al-Andalus before the Reconquista, and some of which continued to be popular afterwards. Attention to this material helps one to interpret the 1504 fatwa of Ibn Abi Jum,a al-Wahrani to the Moriscos and in particular his discussion of blasphemy under coercion.
It is the definition of historical illiteracy to compare Islamophobia to anti-Semitism. And yet that is what is happening. People who feel put out by the discussion of anti-Semitism in the Labour Party, and possibly even envious of the attention that anti-Jewish prejudice is receiving in comparison with anti-Muslim prejudice, have taken to saying: ‘What about the cancer of Islamophobia in the Conservative Party? When are we talking about that?’ They fail to realise the fundamental difference between anti-Semitism and Islamophobia: the former is one of the world’s oldest hatreds and has caused the deaths of millions of people; the latter is a word invented by the Runnymede Trust in 1997 to demonise criticism of Islam.
On the evening of Sunday the 18th of November members of For Britain went along to a meeting in Preston under the provocative heading of:
Questioning Islam; Is it now time to establish the Islamic Caliphate in the UK?
(The advertising poster went on to say): “Many questions are being asked about the place of Islam in the modern world. With the chaos of Brexit and the breakdown of some of the social structures in the UK, can the Islamic caliphate provide a solution?”
There were 128 incidents of church vandalism or other anti-Christian attacks in France during the first five months of 2018, according to a Paris-based Roman Catholic non-profit organization that tracks attacks against Christians.
Zanzibar "has concealed Christian persecution for decades.... issues that the international community knows too little or nothing about....he Christian body has been persecuted for so long." — Simon, pastor of a church, quoted by International Christian Concern.
No surprise here. The Qur’an depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13).
A Saudi Arabian woman charged with having an affair retracted her guilty plea yesterday after the judge warned that under Islamic law, she would be sentenced to death by stoning. The woman, RM, was charged with adultery and justification of sin - claiming that a sin is acceptable - in a case brought by her father at Abu Dhabi's Criminal Court of First Instance. Her co-defendant, an Emirati man, SM, faces the same charges, but he was not in court.
A foreign national in the Emirate of Fujairah has been sentenced to death by stoning by a Shari'a (Islamic) court. Shahin 'Abdul Rahman, whose nationality is not known to Amnesty International, received the sentence on 10 June 2006 for committing adultery after he was allegedly found naked in bed with Asma Bikham Bijam, a domestic worker.
Channel 4 has commissioned a documentary titled The Truth About Muslim Marriage, to be shown this Tuesday. It examines whether Britain’s centuries-old marriage laws need to be updated to reflect and better serve today’s multifaith society. The sighs and groans have already begun from Muslims about this on my social media. “Not another documentary ‘othering’ Muslims,” have been the cries. I do not share this complaint.
Children from across the UK falling victim to abuse after being placed in Birmingham care homes are NOT being counted in the city’s official CSE figures. The youngsters are classed as ‘out of borough kids’ and their ordeals are only officially recorded on a Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) register by their home authority. Critics claim the system means the full picture of
The quotes below come from the Umdat al-Salik and, crucially, represent what is considered to be an authoritative work of Shari’a from the Shafi’i school of Islamic jurisprudence. As we have seen from the concept of “scholarly consensus” (explained above), the rulings included here are legally binding, according to Shari’a.
When a child with discrimination (O: meaning he can eat, drink, and clean himself after using the toilet unassisted) is seven years of age, he is ordered to perform the prayer, and when ten, is beaten for neglecting it (N: not severely, but so as to discipline the child, and not more than three blows). f1.2
Someone raised among Muslims who denies the obligatoriness of the prayer, zakat, fasting Ramadan, the pilgrimage, or the unlawfulness of wine and adultery, or denies something else upon which there is scholarly consensus (ijma’, def:b7) and which is necessarily known as being of the religion (N: necessarily known meaning things that any Muslim would know about if asked) thereby becomes an unbeliever (kafir) and is executed for his unbelief (O: if he does not admit he is mistaken and acknowledge the Obligatoriness or unlawfulness of that which there is scholarly consensus upon. As for if he denies the obligatoriness of something there is not consensus upon, then he is not adjudged an unbeliever). f1.3
The following are not subject to retaliation: … (3) a Jewish or Christian subject of the Islamic state for killing an apostate from Islam (O: because a subject of the state is under its protection, while killing an apostate from Islam is without consequences); o1.2
When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed. o8.1
In such a case, it is obligatory for the caliph (A: or his representative) to ask him to repent and return to Islam. If he does, it is accepted from him, but if he refuses, he is immediately killed. o8.2
The caliph (o25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: o11.4)-which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (O: and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax (O: in accordance with the word of Allah Most High, “Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled” (Koran 9.29) o9.8
The caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim (O: because they are not a people with a Book, nor honored as such, and are not permitted to settle with paying the poll tax (jizya)) o9.9
A free male Muslim who has reached puberty and is sane is entitled to the spoils of battle when he has participated in a battle to the end of it. o10.1
As for personal booty, anyone who, despite resistance, kills one of the enemy or effectively incapacitates him, risking his own life thereby, is entitled to whatever he can take from the enemy, meaning as much as he can take away with him in the battle, such as a mount, clothes, weaponry, money, or other. o10.2
To illustrate how the legal concepts of the Islamic “Lawgiver” differ significantly from those based on reason, here are some familiar commands from Mosaic Law that have underpinned Western society:
Love your Neighbor (or “the Golden Rule”):“Those who follow are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another. (Quran 48:29) Islam always distinguishes between Muslims and non-Muslims.
Do not Murder:Sharia exceptions: Murdering an apostate (deserter of Islam) (Para. o4.17) and a parent murdering his/her children or his/her children’s children (Para. o1.2(4)) The latter exception applies to honor murders.
Do not commit Adultery:Sharia exceptions: Sex with multiple wives (m6.10), sex with slaves and captives (Quran 33:50), and sex with temporary wives (Quran 4:24).
Do not steal: Sharia exceptions: Forcible seizure, snatching and running, and theft by betraying a trust (embezzlement). (Para. o14.6) Corruption is rampant in Islamic states due to these exceptions.
Do not bear false witness:Sharia exceptions: It is OK to break the intent of the oath, as long as you don’t break the letter of the oath. (Para. o19.1) and “When it is possible to achieve such an aim by lying but not by telling the truth, it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible.” Examples including protecting Islam or a Muslim. (Para. r8.2)
A community kitchen supported by the Duchess of Sussex is housed inside a mosque linked by experts to individuals connected to “terrorist acts” and run by an imam who says girls who listen to music risk becoming strippers.
A refugee from Bangladesh was tried by a French court and was acquitted of the rape of a high school girl. The verdict was handed down yesterday. The young man also sexually assaulted another young girl. He was charged with both cases but acquitted of the rape. According to the defense the refugee has ‘different cultural norms’ or ‘cultural codes’ and could have misinterpreted the contact with the girl.
In Egypt's majority Muslim conservative society, atheism is a longstanding taboo, and "minority Christians face unprecedented levels of persecution," according to The Guardian. Those who dare express their lack of faith in public risk prosecution and arrest under Egypt's blasphemy law, in place since 1982.
MUSLIM parents are being urged not to allow their children to eat meat at school over concerns that the produce is not being prepared correctly. Lancashire Council of Mosques (LCM) issued a warning after it said it found that suppliers providing meat and chicken to Lancashire County Council (LCC) for use in schools were not maintaining the high halal standards they expected.
But LCC has assured worried parents that their halal options were all sourced from accredited suppliers.
British Schools, Islamic Rules. Investigation which uncovers disturbing evidence that some Muslim children are being exposed to extremist preachers and fundamentalist Islamic groups. We also expose the part-time schools where hate is on the curriculum. The programme asks why school inspectors have missed the warning signs and examines the impact this could have on young Muslims' ability to integrate into mainstream British life.
The first problem of the European Court of Human Rights decision against Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff is that it means that, at least in cases of blasphemy, truth is not a defence.
Such a judgement hands over the decision on what is or is not allowed to be said not to a European or national court, but to whoever can claim, plausibly or otherwise, that another individual has risked "the peace."
There have been similar mobster tricks tried for some years now. They all run on the old claim, "I'm not mad with you myself; I'm just holding my friend back here."
The President of Germany’s Teachers Association warns that ISIS beheading videos are “spreading like wildfire” amongst Muslim migrant children in German schools. In an article entitled Our schools are out of control, Heinz-Peter Meidinger told BILD that the situation in some schools was becoming chronic, with increasing numbers of violent attacks on teachers creating the need for security guards at schools with migrant populations of 70 per cent and
It might be best, the policeman advised, if the mainly Christian residents closed their shops, went home and laid low in case there was trouble. As the decision sparked off nationwide protests that brought the country to a halt for three days, the slum's new church was closed and services cancelled, while the congregation warily watched the demonstrations unfold. More than a fortnight after Mrs Bibi, a Catholic farmhand, was acquitted of defaming the Prophet Mohammed, she is still hiding in legal limbo,
(CNA/EWTN News).- At least 42 people have died in an attack Thursday on the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart in Alindao, in the Central African Republic, according to local reports. At least one priest was among those killed in the Nov. 15 attack. Some unofficial estimates have said the death toll could reach as high as 100.
The Government effectively banned the headscarf by tying funding of states to the law. Now the right-wing government of the ÖVP and FPÖ want to do the same for elementary schools. “Integration is a two way process, which has an effect on the respective target group. “The wearing of the headscarf until reaching the age of religious maturity can lead to early and especially sex based segregation, which is not reconcilable with the Austrian core value and social norms”, Vice Chancellor Strache told tabloid Krone.
The majority of those 6,000 Christians massacred this year were "mostly children, women and the aged... What is happening in ... Nigeria is pure genocide and must be stopped immediately." — Christian Association of Nigeria.
"There is no doubt that the sole purpose of these attacks is aimed at ethnic cleansing, land grabbing and forceful ejection of the Christian natives from their ancestral land and heritage." — Christian Association of Nigeria.
HAMPSHIRE police handed out more than 100 cautions for rape and other serious sexual offences in the past five years, the Hampshire Chronicle can reveal. The crimes included incest and sex with children under the age of 13. Figures obtained via a Freedom of Information request reveal that since 2014 police have cautioned four people for rape and another six for serious sexual assaults including five counts of sexual assault involving victims under the age of 16.
In a slaughterhouse awash with blood, a frightened bullock ’s eyes widen in fear as the machinery it is trapped in raises its head so a knife-wielding butcher can hack open its neck. Seconds later, as the animal kicks out in pain and panic, a bolt is shot through its brain to stop it injuring workers who yank it up upside down onto a hook, blood gushing from its twitching carcass. In another area of the killing floor,
Britain's madrassas have faced more than 400 allegations of physical abuse in the past three years, a BBC investigation has discovered. But only a tiny number have led to successful prosecutions. The revelation has led to calls for formal regulation of the schools, attended by more than 250,000 Muslim children every day for Koran lessons.
Even if Bibi does manage to leave, there is one country that has refused to offer her asylum: Britain. Wilson Chowdhry of the British Pakistani Christian Association, who is in contact with Bibi and her family, revealed last week that British officials had fears of unrest if Bibi came here. spiked caught up with Chowdhry to discuss the ramifications of the Bibi case in Pakistan and Britain.
spiked: Why is Asia Bibi unable to leave Pakistan despite her acquittal?
The NSS said non-stunned meat is reaching at least 140 schools, the significant majority of which are not Islamic faith schools. It said too many councils had bowed to a hardline interpretation of Islam, adding that the government should repeal the religious exemption to the UK's animal welfare laws.
The number of people enslaved by Muslims has been a hotly debated topic, especially when the millions of Africans forced from their homelands are considered. Some historians estimate that between A.D. 650 and 1900, 10 to 20 million people were enslaved by Arab slave traders. Others believe over 20 million enslaved Africans alone had been delivered through the trans-Sahara route alone to the Islamic world. Dr. John Alembellah Azumah in his 2001 book, The Legacy of Arab-Islam in Africa estimates that over 80 million Black people more died en route.
The Arab slave trade typically dealt in the sale of castrated male slaves. Black boys between the age of 8 and 12 had their scrotums and penises completely amputated to prevent them from reproducing. About six of every 10 boys bled to death during the procedure, according to some sources, but the high price brought by eunuchs on the market made the practice profitable.
Some men were castrated to be eunuchs in domestic service and the practice of neutering male slaves was not limited to only Black males. “The calipha in Baghdad at the beginning of the 10th Century had 7,000 black eunuchs and 4,000 white eunuchs in his palace,” writes author Ronald Segal in his 2002 book, Islam’s Black Slaves: The Other Black Diaspora.
A group of 13 Christian converts in Darfur, Sudan was arrested and tortured last month for their faith, World Watch Monitor and several Christian aid groups have reported. The Christians were reportedly taken from a home in southwest Darfur on October 13 and detained and beaten.
Islamic organisation Muslim Kids Entertainment is indoctrinating and brainwashing young children with TV programmes, education materials and at events. A special event in Belgium brought controversy as the organisation behind it clearly follows an Islamic agenda for very young children. Its promotion video features two young girls in complete Islamic garment who reject watching TV and western programmes as there are
A 60-year-old man has been beaten in Paris in what seems to be a religious hate crime, newspaper Le Parisien reports. The man had gone shopping for Christmas and was carrying a present wrapped in Christmas gift paper. As he left the metro Alesia (XIVth arrondissement) with arms loaded and was walking to the Avenue du Maine (XIVth arrondissement) he was ambushed. A stranger approached him, jostled and
