In the ‘whataboutery’ which now dominates British politics, no mention of Labour anti-Semitism is complete without a counter-accusation of Tory Islamophobia. It swiftly followed the Chief Rabbi’s condemnation of Labour anti-Semitism on Tuesday. There may well be people in the Conservative party who have an irrational hatred of Muslims, but the term ‘Islamophobia’ should be absolutely resisted. Unlike anti-Semitism, this is a concocted concept.
Ministers fear the repatriation of children and wives of Islamic state suspects from Syria could pave the way for dozens of jihadis to use human rights laws to return to the UK, sources have disclosed.
“Seven Islamists have been sentenced to death for a 2016 attack on a cafe in the Bangladeshi capital in which 22 people….Some of the men shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ (an Arabic phrase meaning ‘God is greatest’) as they were led away from the packed courtroom.” As far as they were concerned, it was a triumph.
This must be some mistake. Macron, like virtually every other Western leader except for President Trump, is smugly certain that Islam and jihad have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism. Could France be breaking ranks and actually beginning to deal realistically with the problem of jihad? It’s more likely that this was just an oversight that will soon be corrected amid a cascade of charges of “Islamophobia.”
In recent days, we have seen the worst elements of Jeremy Corbyn. Behind the veneer of an affable, bearded chap I see a sinister Marxist who believes in class warfare and also in pitting Britain’s Muslims against Jews.
MANILA (Reuters) - Soldiers in the southern Philippines rescued a British man and woman from members of an Islamist militant group, the army said on Monday, after their captors fled during a military operation.
A man who launched a frenzied knife attack on commuters and police at Manchester Victoria railway station last New Year's Eve has pleaded guilty to attempted murder. Mahdi Mohamud, 26, raised the fillet knife and walked up behind unsuspecting James Knox, screaming "Allahu Akbar!" and "Long live the Caliphate!" as he stabbed his victim repeatedly in the back, shoulders and head.
Jeremy Corbyn risks refuelling Labour’s antisemitism row after he attended an event run by a Muslim group that has been accused of extremism, while snubbing a dinner celebrating the centenary of the Balfour Declaration.
The Labour leader attended the event in parliament run by the lobbying organisation Mend (Muslim Engagement and Development), whose senior figures include a campaigner who has supported the killing of British soldiers. Mend activists have also made statements regarded as anti-Jewish.
“Across Turkey’s mosques, the Diyanet, or the directorate of religious affairs, organized calls to prayer and recitation of the ‘Conquest’ chapter in the Quran, broadcasting it over loudspeakers. Turkish mainstream media, including state-run Anadolu Agency, broadcast Islamic clerics telling followers the northeast Syria operation was ordained by God. The pro-government media outlet shared dozens of posts allegedly showing Muslims from around the world reciting the ‘Conquest’ chapter of the Quran in support of the Turkish military.”
The death penalty for apostasy is part of Islamic law. It’s based on the Qur’an: “They wish you would disbelieve as they disbelieved so you would be alike. So do not take from among them allies until they emigrate for the cause of Allah. But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them and take not from among them any ally or helper.” (Qur’an 4:89)
He wanted them to submit to his commands. Islamic law mandates a second-class status for Christians, in which they “pay the jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” (Qur’an 9:29). When they refused, he considered it permissible to attack them, as they had forfeited the protection that submission allows for.
A hadith depicts Muhammad saying: “Verily Allah, the Exalted, has forbidden wine. So who hears this verse and he has anything of it with him, he should neither drink it nor sell it.” (Sahih Muslim 3835) The principle is always and everywhere the same: in Muslim countries, one should conform one’s behavior to Muslim sensibilities. In non-Muslim countries, one should conform one’s behavior to Muslim sensibilities.
“Agents of the General Investigations and Special Operations Division (DIGOS), which investigated the case, also found photographs and posts of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler and proposed that he may have also been teaching the young children antisemitic ideas.”
Non-Catholics have lived in Italy for centuries. What is different now? Now there is in Italy a population of non-Catholics among whom are some radically intolerant people who believe that Christianity in all its forms is a twisting and hijacking of the true teachings of Jesus the prophet of Islam. And the principle is always and everywhere the same: in Muslim countries, one must conform one’s behavior to Muslim sensibilities.
Five men who sexually exploited young girls in West Yorkshire have been given jail sentences of up to 14 years by a judge who said their abuse was "vile and wicked" and "defies understanding". A total of 27 men have now been convicted following West Yorkshire Police's Operation Tendersea investigation into child sexual exploitation in Kirklees, with prison sentences totalling more than 300 years.
While one can hardly imagine the Pakistani government responding to Norwegian pressure to stop oppressing Ahmadiyya Muslims, Hindus, women, gays, and so on, Pakistan has not hesitated to complain about developments in Norway that offend its delicate cultural sensibilities.
So it was that the representative of a purportedly free country fell all over himself assuring officials of an "Islamic Republic" that, at least when Islam is in the picture, freedom of speech and of assembly in Norway have their limits.
In Palestine, where Hizb ut-Tahrir was founded, women report violent threats, abuse, and allegations of being part of a Western conspiracy. Linda Jarayseh, outreach manager for the Mehwar Centre in Bethlehem, a safe house for women and children fleeing domestic violence, is one of many examples. She has been a vociferous opponent of forced and early marriage in Palestine. In regards to this, a member of the prescribed global Islamist organisation Hizb ut-Tahrir claimed:
Perhaps Humberside Police are simply unaware of the problems with this claim. For instance, they seem to think that it is no particular bother if the police turn up on a member of the public’s doorstep and start questioning them about their opinions. They clearly see no current or historic occasions when such a procedure went wrong. Nor can they apparently guess why some of us might be concerned at the police taking it upon themselves to decide what is and is not allowed to be said in our society.
A Pakistani migrant male has been jailed for ten years in the Netherlands for his plot to launch a terror attack against Dutch firebrand Geert Wilders in revenge for his organising a ‘draw Mohammad’ free speech event.
Britain has been acquiring an increasingly Islamic face, with hundreds of official Shariah courts operating in the capital and many mosques dotting many cities. “London is more Islamic than many Muslim countries put together,” an Islamic preacher, was quoted as saying in the local media.
The father of foreign secretary Boris Johnson has called for “cruel” halal meat to be either labelled or banned. Stanley Johnson, a former Conservative MEP, author and journalist, wrote in the Independent that he would be “happy to see” halal meat excluded from the UK after leaving the EU. Currently, there is a “religious exception” to the EU’s 2009 Slaughter Regulation requiring all animals to be stunned before slaughter. This allows for halal meat, a market worth £2.6bn in Britain alone, to be killed by hand without being stunned first.
