Summary: 

ISIS has continued the attack on Sikhs for the third straight day by placing explosives are Sikh Gurdwaras and homes and had threatened with another attack. The terrorist organization told the Sikhs to leave the country or be killed. The warning comes after a gunman of ISIS killed 27 Sikhs in a 400 year old Kabul Gurdwara. The Gurdwara housed 40 families who’ve sought refuge after a number attacks on the community occurred in the last several years.

The Afghan government miserably failed to protect the community and has essentially raised their hands for their protection.

Summary: 

This essay constructs and deconstructs three main discourses created by different and opposing trends in modern Islamic thought that are normally and mistakenly lumped together as Islamism, fundamentalism, salafism, neo-salafism, Wahhabism, jihadism, political Islam, Islamic radicalism and others. I will compare and contrast between them by developing a typology of major ideologies of active Islamic trends that centers specifically on Wahhabism and neo-Wahhabism, salafism and neosalafism, and Islamism, both moderate and radical. Understanding these trends and their discourses will allow world powers, policymakers, academicians, intellectuals, terrorism experts, journalists, and many others to distinguish between and understand the logic of the radical and the moderate, the active and the inactive, the jihadi and the peaceful, the takfiri and the tolerant, the modern and the traditional, and the rational and irrational.

Sharia Watch: A rather technical paper but useful for a detailed background understanding. A key point is the supremacism of Islam, expressed in the concept "tawhid", is "the core concept of Islam"!

"While tawhid (oneness of God or monotheism) is the core concept of Islam, Abd al-Wahhab argues that the recognition of a unique creator without a partner is insufficient for correct belief and must be joined with ‘pure’ Islamic
behavior."

“The website published a translation of an ISIS article titled ‘Kill The Idolaters Wherever You Find Them.'”

Wow, what vicious “extremists,” right?

Well, there is this: “And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the idolaters wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them on their way. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.” (Qur’an 9:5)

Summary: 

“The Baha’i faith was founded in the 19th century by an Iranian, the Baha’u’llah. Believers consider him a prophet, a sharp contrast with the orthodox Islamic view that Mohammed was God’s final messenger.”

The mainstream Islamic view is that Muhammad was the last prophet, an idea that is based on this Qur’an verse: “Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but the Messenger of Allah and seal of the prophets” (33:40). Accordingly, the Baha’is are considered heretics or apostates, and thus must be put to death in accord with the Sharia death penalty for heresy and apostasy.

Summary: 

Sharia directs that women accused of adultery be stoned to death. This report does not explain why this woman was shot to death instead. In any case, putting adulterers (although usually only women are punished this way) to death is not “extremist”; it is Islamic law. The caliph Umar, one of Muhammad’s closest companions, even maintained that it was originally in the Qur’an:

“Men Ram Car Into Spanish Airport Shouting ‘Islamist Type’ Slogans, Had no Terror Motive Say Police,” , March 20, 2020 (thanks to ):

Summary: 
  • According to the report, the Muslim Brotherhood and ISIS have, through a number of fatwas, called on Muslims to produce "human biological weapons" to attack the enemies of Islam.

  • In addition, 35% of the fatwas judged that the outbreak of the virus underscored the need for women to wear the niqab.

  • The report noted that Islamist cleric Osama Hijazi recently claimed that wearing the niqab is an "effective treatment" for the coronavirus.

  • The bad news is that extremist Muslims and their allies are again exposing their contempt for human life, including the life of Muslims who oppose their ideology, terrorism and jihad. These are the Muslims that urgently need the world's help.
