Summary: 

Faithkeepers is an upcoming documentary film about the violent persecution of Christians and other religious minorities in the Middle East.  This issue is not new.  But it’s getting worse, and there is something we can do about it.

The film features exclusive footage and testimonials of Christians, Baha’i, Yazidis, Jews, and other minority refugees. It presents a historical context of the persecution of minorities in the war-torn region. It is due to be released next year. The film also follows the story of a 24-year-old Christian student from North Carolina on her journey of understanding, discovery and solidarity with persecuted brothers and sisters in the Middle East. Faithkeepers – the movie and the movement – will awaken, enlighten and inspire all people of faith to stand up and take action.

Summary: 

Electronic Intifada doesn’t even bother to explain why the article that Miriam Rice tweeted is false. And it can’t establish that, anyway, as it’s obviously true. If Arabs in Israel wanted to live in “Palestine,” they could move to the Palestinian Authority or Gaza now. But somehow they seem to prefer life in the Little Satan.

Summary: 

He asked his audience what they would do if somebody were to try to take their moms or sisters as girlfriends, and when one boy answered that he would want to kill the man, Ibn Mansur responded that he is not allowed to do that and that an Islamic court would have to deal with the issue, but that he would have to “move back home” for this because there is no Islamic law in England.

Summary: 

The voice of tyranny is often represented as the thunderous pounding of a gauntleted fist on the door in the dark reaches of the night. In fact, in my short time as Chair of Index on Censorship, I have learned that, more frequently, people who try to tell the truth under authoritarian regimes first detect the true voice of oppression in the quiet, dry-as-dust whisper of the bureaucrat’s pen as it scratches out some apparently innocuous message. Then you read it and it says: recant, and repent now. Confess, grovel, beg, denounce your fellow deviants, and you may save your livelihood, your home, your permit to travel. Do as we say, accept the mortification of the flesh, and your soul may, just, escape eternal damnation.

Summary: 

Sharia Watch: Pedictably, this document makes NO reference to the fact that these punishments are mandated in the Quran and therefore in sharia law.

Although most modern societies do not consider amputation as a correctional method, many third-world nations have adopted punitive amputations. Judicial amputation is still used in Iran, Yemen, Sudan, Afghanistan, and the Islamic regions of Nigeria. In July 2009, Al Shabaab of Somalia, and the Islamic Sharia (strict Islamic law) court sentenced four teenagers to amputation of their right foot and left hand as punishment for stealing mobile phones and other goods [23]. The Deputy Chief Justice of Sudan recently revealed that 16 people were subjected to amputations since 2001 [3]. Adam al-Muthna, 30, was the first reported case of forced amputation in Sudan. Three doctors amputated the right hand and left foot of al-Muthna on February 14, 2013 in a hospital in Khartoum. This event attracted a public outcry, particularly by the Sudanese Doctors’ Union. The union complained that the doctors were horrified to break the Hippocratic Oath by harming their patient instead of protecting him [3].

The common judicial punishment for theft in Saudi Arabia is the amputation of the right hand [17]. But for highway robbery, the punishment is cross amputation —amputation of the right hand and left foot. Although such cases have been unusual in Saudi Arabia, Amnesty International reported four cases in 1986. In 1990, fewer than ten hand amputations reportedly occurred, at least five of which were administered to foreigners [21]. More recently, a court in Saudi Arabia sentenced six men to cross amputations for highway robbery. In October 2011, a court of appeal upheld this cross amputation sentence [1, 26].

Summary: 

Professors at U.S. colleges and universities teach some world history and a lot of mythology. Those who speak of a war against terrorism rather than a war against radical Islam put forward a myth of multicultural harmony in medieval Spain among Muslim overlords and Christian or Jewish subjects. Not so, asserts author Darío Fernández-Morera, who shows how Muslims ran a dhimmi system that was a gangster-like protection racket. Christians and Jews had to pay up and accept second-class citizenship. If they rebelled, Muslims could cut off their heads or make their children sexual slaves.

This book aims to demystify Islamic Spain by questioning the widespread belief that it was a wonderful place of tolerance and convivencia of three cultures under the benevolent supervision of enlightened Muslim rulers. As the epigraphs throughout this book illustrate, the nineteenth-century romantic vision of Islamic Spain has morphed into today’s “mainstream” academic and popular writings that celebrate “al-Andalus” for its “multiculturalism,” “unity of Muslims, Christians, and Jews,” “diversity,” and “pluralism,” regardless of how close such emphasis is to the facts. Some scholars of the Spanish Middle Ages have even openly declared an interest in promoting these ideas.

Under the Islamic institution of the dhimma (writ or contract of “protection”), the Christian dhimmis of al-Andalus must pay a special tax, the jizya, for a “protection” intended, as Maliki legal texts make clear, to remind them of their submission. Malik’s Muwatta declares, “Zakat is imposed on the Muslims to purify them and to be given back to their poor, whereas jizya is imposed on the people of the Book to humble them.”10 Therefore the jizya ought to be paid in a humiliating manner:

The dhimmi, standing, would present the money to the Muslim collector who would be sitting higher up on a sort of throne; this Muslim bureaucrat would hold the dhimmi by the throat telling him “Oh dhimmi, enemy of Allah, pay the jizya that you owe us for the protection and tolerance we grant you”; the other Muslims present would imitate the collector, pushing around the dhimmi and whoever other dhimmis accompanied him. To this amusing spectacle should be admitted any Muslim who wanted to enjoy it.11

As part of the dhimma system, a Muslim “officer of protection” regulated all affairs related to Christians.
