As many as 25% of 'Islamophobic hate crimes' recorded by the Metropolitan Police are crimes committed against non-Muslims or people of unknown faith. This is the conclusion from Freedom of Information inquiries made by Hardeep Singh of the Network of Sikh Organisations, which has been reported in the Spectator this week (4th Paragraph of the article). The Met recorded 1,227 incidents of Islamophobic hate crime last year.
Tellingly, there is no attempt to define ‘Islam’ in the APPG report. What they have done instead is racialise Islam so as to make Islamophobia a form of racism. It does not matter that Islam is not a race, or that many Muslims do not see themselves as anything like a separate race. The authors want Islamophobia to be seen as racist. The report explains:
The controversial practice allowing Muslim men to instantly divorce their wives without explanation has been made illegal in India. The ruling will make 'triple talaq' – in which a husband can annul a marriage by saying the Arabic for divorce three times – punishable by three years imprisonment.
The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on British Muslims’ definition of Islamophobia has mainly been framed as a free speech issue. The definition adopted by some parties and councils will certainly limit criticism of Islam and Islamism even further than it already is currently. To say it will not is dishonest at best. This has already been the case for a long time now. For those of us who have fled Iran, it has been so since the expropriation of the Iranian revolution by the Islamists; in Britain, at least since the Rushdie affair.
Young Muslims are opting out. They've renounced the Islam of their immigrant parents and feel disillusioned with a society that they perceive as racist. Many are turning their backs on democracy and Britain. And they are finding a new identity in a brand of Islam that is radical and intolerant. Out of 1.8 million Muslims living in Britain today, the highest proportion have their roots in Bangladesh and Pakistan-administered Kashmir.
A group saying it represents large numbers of "ex-Muslims" is urging policy-makers to ignore the faith. Those of us who have come forward with our names and photographs represent countless others who are unable or unwilling to do so because of the threats faced by those considered 'apostates' - punishable by death in countries under Islamic law."
Muslim parents are refusing to allow their children to take part in a nationwide flu vaccine drive after the Muslim Council of Britain ruled the treatment was forbidden by Islam. Public health officials have raised concern over the number of Muslim children expected to be withdrawn from a major programme beginning in schools next month.
Not all people who worry about a replacement of civilizations are necessarily violent or even incorrect. They appear to be frightened folk, sent over the edge by matters they may feel beyond control. In Europe and the United States, they have witnessed wave upon wave of attacks by individuals and groups openly espousing violence in the name of religion. They seem to fear that their own governments are doing too little to protect them and their families from future attacks.
"What unites these groups ideologically is a belief that Europe is facing a 'great replacement' by Muslim and African immigrants. And they want something done about it." — Marion MacGregor, "The push from Europe's young new right", Infomigrants.net; May 5, 2018.
Political correctness, often an extreme form of denial of reality, has made it increasingly hard for even the most reasonable and careful of thinkers to say anything critical about Islam...efforts to block fair criticism of aspects of Islam can become unjust forms of censorship.
Anne Marie Waters opposes jihad mass murder and Sharia oppression of women, gays, and others. Because of that, the Labour Party, whose leader has close links with the jihad terrorists of Hamas and Hizballah, is demanding the head of Boris Johnson aide Chloe Westley for daring to praise Waters in 2016.
And yet when I look back now, the remarkable thing is not how much fuss they made, but how little, especially if you think what we have come to expect from some Muslims. I have in mind not just the murders of Pim Fortuyn and Theo van Gogh, but the trembling refusal of a noted Koranic scholar to write an article for The Spectator. "You don't understand," he said. "These people will kill me if I say what I really think. I mean kill me."
Books found in the library of an Islamic private school promoted extremism, inspectors found. Inspectors said school leaders told them they were "unaware of the existence of these texts" though they were found in the library and "stamped with the school's name". One book set out a series of aims which included "To help the Taliban government in the accomplishment of enforcement of Shari'ah in Afghanistan" and "To struggle for the creation of Islamic states in which the Islamic canons will enforced
An Islamic television station faces being stripped of its British broadcast licence after relaying hate speech against gay people and advocating the execution of magicians. Four programmes on Peace TV breached broadcasting rules on incitement to crime, hate speech, abuse and offence, according to Ofcom, the media regulator.
A strange development has emerged from the ongoing discussion about LGBT-inclusive education. It seems that it's unacceptable for a school to refrain from talking about the existence of same-sex relationships, but it is acceptable for a school to teach that same-sex relationships are wicked.
It was in 2004 that GMP became aware of allegations about the grooming of predominantly white girls by gangs in the market town. Oliver had been recruited to Operation Augusta, an investigation in them, which began later that year. Yet, despite the fact that a list of over 200 suspects had been compiled, it was abandoned. One suspect identified by a victim turned out to be a serving police officer. Oliver was told by another officer responsible for investigating corruption to “leave it to us”. “I never heard what, if anything, happened to him,” she says.
39.Both Sir John Jenkins and Charles Farr drew the following overarching conclusions from their work:
- the Muslim Brotherhood have promoted a radical, transformative politics, at odds with a millennium of Islamic jurisprudence and statecraft, in which the reconstruction of individual identity is the first step towards a revolutionary challenge to established states and a secularised if socially conservative order;
In April 2008, during his keynote address to the first conference of the Association for the Study of the Middle East and Africa, Professor Bernard Lewis warned of the ominous limits on scholarly analysis of Islam imposed by political correctness and multiculturalism:
The degree of thought control, of limitations on freedom of speech and expression is without parallel in the Western world since the eighteenth century and in some cases longer than that. ... It seems to me it’s a very dangerous situation, because it makes any kind of scholarly discussion of Islam, to say the least, dangerous. Islam and Islamic values now have a level of immunity from comment and criticism in the Western world that Christianity has lost and Judaism has never had.
the different ways of promoting what is good and preventing what is wrong are included under the broad rubric of al-jihād fī sabīl Allāh, “striving in the path of God.” A well-known Hadith therefore refers to four primary ways in which jihad can be carried out: by the heart, the tongue, the hand (physical action short of armed combat), and the sword.
Admin: We restate this more simply as "Jihad is the process of imposing Islamic values". This covers the entire spectrum from imposing onself(heart) through imposing on public space by preaching(tongue) and actions(hand) such as demanding halal, separate prayer rooms, gender segregated meetings, time of to pray, Ramadan etc through to armed combat/jihad(sword).
Hamas Political Bureau member Fathi Hammad said, in a July 12, 2019 speech at a March of Return rally that aired on Al-Aqsa TV, that Palestinians abroad should “attack every Jew on planet Earth and slaughter and kill them.”
Khuram Butt worked at various Tube stations. An MI5 officer “said there was no evidence that Butt took the job for ‘nefarious purposes.'” That means that there was no evidence that Butt plotted a jihad massacre in the Tube. MI5 does not know, however, what he might have intended to do eventually. That is important because there is no doubt whatsoever that Muslims are being hired for the airport and the Tube without ever being questioned or investigated about what they think about jihad.
Today, April 24, marks the “Great Crime,” that is, the genocide of Christians—mostly Armenians but also Assyrians and Greeks—that took place under the Islamic Ottoman Empire, throughout World War I. Then, in an attempt to wipe out as many Christians as possible, the Turks massacred approximately 1.5 million Armenians, 300,000 Assyrians, and 750,000 Greeks.
According to the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Index (2016), the 10 worst countries for gender equality are those in which Islam is the dominant religious demographic. This should come as no surprise to anyone who has undertaken even an ounce of research into the core doctrines and common traditions associated with this extremely patriarchal religion. Whilst Islam is not a monolith and many variations exist with regards to beliefs, practices, degrees of adherence, etc., it is noteworthy that those societies which treat their women the worst all zealously adhere to a religion that sees women as inherently inferior to men.
A senior Hamas official has urged members of the Palestinian diaspora to kill Jews around the world. Fathi Hamad, a member of Hamas’s politburo who is considered a hard-liner and is known for his fiery rhetoric, made the statement in a speech at a protest in the border region between the Gaza Strip and Israel on Friday.
Labour has defended an election rally where men and women sat separately after UKIP leader Nigel Farage called the event "wholly unacceptable." The rally in Birmingham was advertised as having a "women's section" and photos taken at the event show men and women sitting apart. Privately, one Labour figure told the Birmingham Mail the seating arrangements ensured women from Muslim communities could tak
According to an Israeli TV news report, “the Mossad together with Israel’s military intelligence thwarted 50 terror attacks by the Islamic State and Iran in 20 countries around the world over the past three years….12 of the attacks were supposed to have taken place on Turkish soil – some of them during a period in which Turkey and Israel had frozen all diplomatic ties.”
Former Rotherham MP admits he could have done more to "burrow into" the problem in his constituency, but insists no victims ever approached him. He told the BBC: "I think there was a culture of not wanting to rock the multicultural community boat if I may put it like that.” Admitting he had been guilty of doing too little, he said he had been aware of the problem of cousin marriage and “the oppression of women within bits of the Muslim community in Britain” but: “Perhaps yes, as a true Guardian reader, and liberal leftie, I suppose I didn’t want to raise that too hard.” He r
It is common knowledge that, for over a thousand years, Arab and Muslim slavers took enormous numbers of men, women and children from sub-Saharan Africa. What is not so well known is that they took equally large numbers of people from Europe. As with Africa, Arab slave-taking in Europe began in the seventh century – shortly after the rise of Islam – and continued virtually without interruption into the modern epoch.
Modern Western culture, with its Anglo-centric world-view, has an almost obsessive preoccupation with the European trade in African slaves, a trade which commenced in the late fifteenth century and ended in the mid-nineteenth, but seems to have little knowledge of or interest in the equally intense Muslim trade in European slaves during the same epoch. This is a strange state of affairs, given the fact that, in general, the Europeans enslaved by the Muslims between the fifteenth and nineteenth centuries, were treated appallingly, and the trade had a long-term and devastating impact upon large areas of the continent.
This is a classic manual of fiqh rulings based on Shafi"i School of jurisprudence and includes original Arabic texts and translations from classic works of prominent Muslim scholars such as al Ghazali, al Nawawi, al Qurtubi, al Dhahabi and others.
Admin: This manual has been endorsed by Cairo's al-Azhar university as "conforming to the practice and faith of orthodox Sunni Islam". It substantiates the Council of Europe report that outlines some of the ways in which sharia is incompatible with democracy and human rights in that it:
Sanctions death for apostasy
Death by stoning for adultery and sodomy
Discrimination against non-Muslims
Jihad against non-Muslims to establish Islam
In some cases, forced conversion to Islam
Discrimination against non-Muslims
Amputation of limbs
It makes clear that penalties like amputation and stoning are also applicable to non-Muslims.
This resolution by the Council of Europe spells out precisely how sharia is incompatible with human rights and democracy:
The Assembly recalls that the European Court of Human Rights has already stated in Refah Partisi (The Welfare Party) and others v. Turkey that the institution of Sharia law and a theocratic regime are incompatible with the requirements of a democratic society. The Assembly fully agrees that Sharia rules on, for example, divorce and inheritance proceedings are clearly incompatible with the Convention, in particular its Article 14, which prohibits discrimination on grounds such as sex or religion, and Article 5 of Protocol No. 7 to the Convention (ETS No. 117), which establishes equality between marital partners. Sharia law is also in contradiction with other provisions of the Convention and its additional protocols, including Article 2 (right to life), Article 3 (prohibition of torture or inhuman or degrading treatment), Article 6 (right to a fair trial), Article 8 (right to respect for private and family life), Article 9 (freedom of thought, conscience and religion), Article 10 (freedom of expression), Article 12 (right to marry), Article 1 of the Protocol to the Convention (ETS No. 9) (protection of property) and Protocols Nos. 6 (ETS No. 114) and 13 (ETS No. 187) abolishing the death penalty.
Many mosques and Islamic schools in Canada are placing young people at risk by espousing — or at least not condemning — extremist teachings, a new study says. The study says what worried them was not the presence of extremist literature, but that they found nothing but such writings in several libraries.
Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who is reportedly being vetted by Donald Trump as a potential running mate, was fired as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) in the winter of 2014 after three decades in the military. Here he tells the real story of his departure from his post and why America is not getting any closer to winning the war on terror.
A teenager who planned to carry out a terrorist outrage in London using a hunting knife, or else use the knife to steal a Rolex to fund his travel to Syria has been sentenced to five years in prison today (28 June). He was prosecuted by the CPS Counter Terrorism Division who said Ahmed had viewed violent propaganda videos to prepare for an attack. The videos included a Daesh-produced film he downloaded in June 2017 showing how to carry out a so-called “lone wolf” attack.
25 The areas identified of particular concern were the “Deobandi-controlled madrassas in the ,” “Northern Balochistan” madrassas, and “Dawa schools run by Jamat-ud-Dawa”25 as the main areas of specific distress (United States Department of State).
There is widespread evidence showing that “today, Christians constitute by far the most widely persecuted religion.”19 Finding once again that Christianity is the most persecuted religion in the world, the Pew Research Center concluded that in 2016 Christians were targeted in 144 countries20 – a rise from 125 in 2015.
This is from a paper published by people at the University of Maiduguri (Borno State, Nigeria) giving an overview of the aim of the "Islamic Movement" which is political dominance. A copy of this paper can be downloaded from this article.
ABSTRACT: Islam as a religion and social order which seeks power, state and governance of a polity in line with the external principles laid down in the Holy Quran and Hadith and demand every believer to actively participate and struggle to establish supremacy of the righteous moral conduct. Consequent upon the above, the reformist calls on believers across the Muslim world to build a fair, just and acceptable society based on principles of Islamic ideologies of governance to restore human dignity and social cleansing. As a result, some Islamic Movements emerged in places like the Mahdi Movement in Sudan, Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Jama’atmi Movement in Pakistan, Taliban in Afghanistan, Islamic Revolution in Iran, the Sokoto Jihad in Nigeria, Hezbollah in Lebanon, and Hamas in Palestine that try to seek power, state as well as establish good governance. However, so many challenges came on their ways among which include internal and external problem. This paper therefore, attempted to assess and analysis the struggle of Islamic movement, power and state and above all the challenges of governance using Islamic Republic of Iran and Afghanistan as a state model.
Diane Abbott, the new shadow home secretary, took a donation from a charity group alleged to have links with extremist groups. The Muslim Charities Forum was banned from receiving government aid after an investigation suggested links to a group alleged to fund Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood political movement, as well as poor performance in delivering against agreed objectives. Ms Abbott accepted a £5,000 donation in kind fro
The University of Gävle in Sweden every year releases a “Diverity barometer” where people in Sweden are asked about their attitudes towards diversity. In the latest barometer they conclude that Swedes’ attitudes towards giving immigrants their cultural rights have become more negative, at the same time more people have positive experiences of having an immigrant colleague at work.
A middle aged Indonesian woman, who has been identified by her initials SM, has been charged with blasphemy for bringing her dog into a mosque in Bogor and setting it loose, despite the police’s mental health assessment unearthing her long history of mental illness.
A teenage girl was murdered by her parents in front of her siblings for wearing a top that showed off her arms. Shafilea Ahmed, 17, suffered years of abuse from her mum and dad before they decided to end her life for bringing ‘dishonour’ to the family.
