    Summary: 

    For years, Egyptian Copt Michel Fahmy could hear a Muslim preacher invoking God’s wrath on Christians in sermons blared over loudspeakers from a mosque near his home. The radical message, he says, is a reason for jihadist attacks on his minority like the twin bombings of churches on Sunday that killed 45 people.

    Summary: 

    In Europe, Muslims have greater freedom to follow their faith than Christians do, the head of an anti-discrimination group has said. Martin Kugler, Austrian historian and founder of the Observatory on Intolerance and Discrimination Against Christians in Europe, said Christians were being marginalised on the continent while Muslims are treated much more carefully.

  • Summary: 
    • British multiculturalists are feeding Islamic fundamentalism. Muslims do not need to become the majority in the UK; they just need gradually to Islamize the most important cities. The change is already taking place.

    • British personalities keep opening the door to introducing Islamic sharia law. One of the leading British judges, Sir James Munby, said that Christianity no longer influences the courts and these must be multicultural, which means more Islamic. Rowan Williams, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, and Chief Justice Lord Phillips, also suggested that the English law should "incorporate" elements of sharia law.

    • British universities are also advancing Islamic law. The academic guidelines, "External speakers in higher education institutions", provide that "orthodox religious groups" may separate men and women during events. At the Queen Mary University of London, women have had to use a separate entrance and were forced to sit in a room without being able to ask questions or raise their hands, just as in Riyadh or Tehran.

    The Christian Action Network (CAN) says the U.S Department of Education is funding an Islamic education program in America’s public schools, in which students in grades 5 through 12 are taught the Islamic way of life in a way that crosses the line from academics to indoctrination. “’Access Islam’ is funded by the Department of Education and is being promoted on various websites,” Martin Mawyer, president and founder of CAN, tells Breitbart News.

    Why would a Non-Muslim want to read the story of Mohammed?



     
    Mohammed’s life story is the key which unlocks the complexities and confusion of the Islamic religion itself. Understanding his story provides a clear insight into Islam and the incredible importance this subject holds for our future.
    This is also the most amazing story never told. It is said that truth is stranger than fiction and you just could not have made this up. There are battles, murders, intrigues, rapes, assassinations, torture, intimidation, and much much more. Along the way Mohammed invented Jihad, the most effective system of conquest ever devised.
    This amazing book reads like an adventure story and brings the Islamic perspective to life in a way that is both fascinating and informative.
    Millions of people, both Muslims and non Muslims are tragically affected by aspects of Islam. More than 95% of all wars and armed conflict today involve Muslims. Muslims also suffer some of the highest rates of poverty, disease, hunger, illiteracy, environmental degradation and many more crippling disadvantages. By tackling the subject head on, this book gives the reader the ability to consider and discuss this subject from a position of knowledge, understanding and truth.

    Islam is a political movement with religious aspects
    If we can have Islam re-classified, it will be a game changer in the war against the Jihadists. We cannot stress how important this is. Follow these simple, effective steps which will win this fight. All of them are designed to be easy and straightforward. 

  • Summary: 
    • Jihadists seem to be leading an assault against freedom and against secular democracies.

    • Sunni Islam's most prominent preacher, Yusuf al Qaradawi, declared that the day will come when, like Constantinople, Rome will be Islamized.

    • It is Islam, not Christianity, that now saturates Europe's landscape and imagination.

  • Summary: 

    No other party can do this but UKIP. The others have already sold their souls. Labour won’t do it because it relies on the Muslim vote. The Tories are no better; they’ve been in Government (albeit most of the time in a coalition) for some years now, and yet nothing whatsoever has changed.

    If UKIP won’t step up and take this on, then someone truly nasty could. There are numerous (actual) racists, fascists, anti-Semites, misogynists out there just waiting to use Islam as the excuse to turn back the clock on all the progress the West has made. We must find the place between the ugliness of Islam and the ugliness of those who will rise if decent people are forced in to silence.

    These problems are not going to go away, they will only get worse unless firm and unapologetic action is taken. If UKIP won’t do this, someone will, and UKIP could simply fade away; seen as out of touch and too afraid to challenge the orthodoxy of the Left-dominated media, it could become irrelevant. For the sake of the country we love, we shouldn’t allow this to happen.

    Summary: 

    Question: "Do Christians and Muslims worship the same God?" 


    Answer: 
    The Muslim and Christian views of God have some similarities. Christians believe in one eternal God Who created the universe, and Muslims apply these attributes to . Both view God as all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-present. 


    A vital  is the biblical concept of the Trinity. In the Bible, God has revealed Himself as one God in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. While each Person of the Trinity is fully God, God is not three gods but three in one.

    Summary: 

    FORCED CONVERSION: 42. Reports continue to be received of enforced Islamization in the government-controlled areas in the conflict zones and among displaced southerners in northern Sudan. Food and relief, including medicines and clothes, are among the means used to force people to convert to the Islamic religion. The displaced persons who reject Islam are refused shelter and relief.

  • Summary: 

    The answer is, in fact, no. We may surmise this from how Islamic tradition records Muhammad himself dealing with criticism. Abu Afak was a poet who was over one hundred years old, and had mocked Muhammad in his verses. Muhammad asked the Sahaba: “Who will avenge me on this scoundrel?” One of the companions murdered Abu Afak in his sleep. Likewise with another poet who mocked him: the poetess Asma bint Marwan. Muhammad on another occasion cried out, “Will no one rid me of this daughter of Marwan?” One of Muhammad’s companions, Umayr ibn Adi, went to her house that night, where he found her sleeping next to her children. The youngest, a nursing babe, was in her arms. But that didn’t stop Umayr from murdering her and the baby as well. Muhammad commended him: “You have done a great service to Allah and His Messenger, Umayr!” (Ibn Ishaq, 674-676)

    Summary: 

    Who is the enemy? It’s been over 15 years since Sept. 11, 2001, and this fundamental question still rattles around. Prominent answers have included evildoers, violent extremists, terrorists, Muslims, and Islamists.

    As an example of how not to answer this question, the Obama administration convened a Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) Working Group in 2010 and included participants who turned up such gems as: “Jihad as holy war is a European invention,” the caliphate’s return is “inevitable,” Shariah (Islamic law) is “misunderstood,” and “Islamic terrorism is a contradiction in terms because terrorism is not Islamic by definition.” The result? The group produced propaganda helpful to the (unnamed) enemy.

    In contrast, then-candidate Donald Trump gave a robust speech in August 2016 on how he, as president, would “Make America Safe Again.” In it, he pledged that “one of my first acts as president will be to establish a commission on radical Islam.” Note: he said radical Islam, not some euphemism like violent extremism.

    Six months ago, Donald Trump  his intention to "establish a commission on radical Islam" early in his presidency, designed to investigate and explain the "core convictions and beliefs of radical Islam," identify "warning signs of radicalization," and expose "the networks in our society that support radicalization."

  • Summary: 
    • "If we are serious about the fight against Islamism and terrorism, then it must also be a cultural struggle." — German Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel.

    • German authorities issued 105,000 visas for so-called family reunifications in 2016, a 50% increase over the 70,000 visas issued in 2015, according to Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The 105,000 visas for family members were in addition to the 280,000 new asylum seekers who arrived in Germany in 2016.

    • Police say Sudanese migrants, many of whom were allowed to enter Germany without having their fingerprints taken, have "created a business model" out of social security fraud. Local officials have been accused of covering up the fraud.

    • An employee at a social security office handed her boss a file with 30 cases of suspected fraud. After he refused to act, she contacted the police. She was fired for "overstepping her authority."

    • Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble revealed that the migrant crisis would cost German taxpayers €43 billion ($46 billion) during 2016 (€21.7 billion) and 2017 (€21.3 billion).

    • The Bishop of Regensburg, Rudolf Voderholzer, said there could be no reconciliation between Christians and Muslims. Islam is a "post-Christian phenomenon, with the claim to negate the core content of Christianity," he said.

  • Summary: 

    Another excellent and heart-felt piece by Shazia Hobbs the writer of the novel ‘, this time on the subject of bullying by Islamists in order to impose their views on the rest of us.

    She speaks of the ‘creeping shariah’ where Islam is given a place of respect that it does not deserve by those who appease Islam. She speaks also of ‘hate speech’ laws that penalise those who speak out about the problems in Islamic ideology and the scandalous discrepancy between how those who protest Islam by throwing bacon at mosques and how those Muslims who mutilate their daughters genitals are treated. In the first instance the person is likely to get a substantial prison sentence (and will probably be banged up with violent Muslim criminals) whereas in the second situation the police will do all they can to avoid arresting and prosecuting those involved in FGM. We are rapidly approaching the time where Islam will become a ‘state within a state’ and that is something that to my mind should be vigourously resisted.

  • Summary: 
    • What the West does not understand is that Islam admits that government control is central to Islam and that Muslims must, sooner or later, demand to live under an Islamic government.

    • The majority of the world does not understand that much of the American media is in a propaganda war against the Trump administration simply because he names Islamic jihad and would prefer to see a strong and prosperous America as a world leader rather than to see a dictatorship -- secular or theocratic -- as a world leader.

    • Islam claims to be an Abrahamic religion, but in fact Islam came to the world 600 years after Christ, not to affirm the Bible but to discredit it; not to co-exist with "the people of the book" -- Jews and Christians -- but to replace them, after accusing them of intentionally falsifying the Bible.

    • Islam was created as a rebellion against the Bible and its values, and it relies on government enforcement to do so.

    • Political and legal (sharia) Islam is much more than a religion. Is the First Amendment a suicide pact?

    Summary: 

    A number of new factors, however, are contributing to an increasingly intolerant trend. One has been the rise of Salafism, a conservative, often puritanical, movement within Sunni Islam originating mainly from Saudi Arabia. In Southeast Asia, despite certain differences, the term is frequently used interchangeably with Wahhabism, a branch of the Islam often associated with ISIS and Al-Qaeda.

  • Summary: 

    Q: In the MRM’s inaugural press conference, you said American mosques that reject the MRM’s declaration of principles are part of the problem, while those that accept the principles are part of the solution. How many mosques did the MRM approach? Did most of these mosques accept or reject these principles?

    A: We spent significant resources on this outreach over a period of ten months. We reached out through snail mail, e-mail, and telephone to over 3,000 mosques and over 500 known public American Muslims. We received only 40-plus rather dismissive responses from our outreach, and sadly less than ten of them were positive. In fact, one mosque in South Carolina left us a vicious  threatening our staff if we contacted them again.

    Admin: The response from contacting over 3000 mosques says it all! Placing faith in reforming Islam is like following a rainbow.

    I know that it is my duty to keep you informed of MY WILL on anything that comes before Parliament, or should come before Parliament.

     

    It is MY WILL you take immediate action to initiate a Senate Inquiry to investigate islam.  The inquiry would need to determine whether the doctrine of islam and the practice of Islamic doctrine, by moslems, obeys the laws of Australia, and satisfies islam remaining as a religion to be protected under Section 116 of the Constitution of Australia.

     

    The planned Christmas Day islamic jihad attack in Melbourne requires action of a Prime Minister who places the welfare of the Australian people before the Globalist agenda of the UN and the islamic religion. islamic doctrine and practice of this islamic doctrine by moslems raises question to islam being classified as a religion.

     

    It is My Will Mr Turnbull, your Government lead this nation by initiating a Senate Inquiry to determine if islam is a Religion, a Political Ideology, a Religious Cult or both a Political Ideology / Religious Cult.  Should the inquiry determine islam is a religion, it is My Will, Mr Prime Minister, a further determination be made.

  • Summary: 

    For over a decade, Europe’s struggle to successfully integrate its Muslim population has been evident. But throughout the years a new and distinctly European phenomenon arose, which is as significant as it is underreported: Gangster Islam. It entails the conflation of the seemingly a-religious street culture of youths from a Muslim background on the one hand, and elements of the Islamic religion on the other. The German publication Der Spiegel once very  touched on the matter, a Danish  highlighted Islamic extremists recruiting gang members from a Muslim background, and a Dutch terrorism expert  how Syrian returnees were more likely to live a life of crime in order to finance the jihad, than to actually commit a terror attack.

    Admin: See also "The Jihadi Plan To Break Us":

    This is how Sheikh Abu-Bakr Naji, the late theoretician of the Sunni version of the Islamo-apocalyptic movement, put it: “No one should feel safe without submitting, and those who refuse to submit must pay a high price. The aim of our movement is to turn the world into a series of wildernesses in which only those under our rule enjoy security.”

    The sheikh’s neo-jihadi theory was explained a decade ago in his magnum opus “Governance in the Wilderness” (“Edarat al Tawwahush”). The book rejected al Qaeda’s theory of war based on the assumption that “the infidel” would succumb to Islamic rule with a few spectacular attacks such as 9/11 against New York and Washington. The sheikh further examines what he calls “the five schools of jihad” to reveal their inadequacies.

  • Summary: 

    Today, our analysis of the ICM survey of British Muslims for Channel 4 and Juniper Television shows that the gradual buildup of understanding and friendship between Britain’s Jews and Muslims has been utterly eclipsed by growing antisemitism amongst British Muslims. On every single count, British Muslims were more likely by far than the general British population to hold deeply antisemitic views. It is clear that many British Muslims reserve a special hatred for British Jews, rating Jews much less favourably than people of other religions or no religion, yet astonishingly British Muslims largely do not recognise antisemitism as a major problem.

    Summary: 

    Western democracies are now frequently experiencing political events that were previously considered unthinkable, at least by their political elites. If there is a common theme to Brexit, the candidacy of Donald Trump and the rise of the Front National in France, it is that political establishments which ignore and ridicule voters’ concerns about issues including immigration and cultural cohesion are simply storing up trouble for the future. Such concerns do not go away just because politicians refuse to acknowledge them, instead erupting unpredictably.

  • Summary: 
    • There are now many Catholic commentators who are questioning the Church's blindness about the danger Europe is facing.

    • "Islam has every chance massively to strengthen its presence in Europe with the blessing of the Church.... the Church is not only leading Europe to an impasse, it is also shooting itself in the foot." — Laurent Dandrieu, cultural editor of the French magazine Valeurs Actuelles.

    • "It is clear that Muslims have an ultimate goal: conquering the world...Islam, through the sharia, their law...allows violence against the infidels, such as Christians....And what is the most important achievement? Rome." — Cardinal Raymond Burke, interview, Il Giornale.

    • "[T]hey are not refugees, this is an invasion, they come here with cries of 'Allahu Akbar', they want to take over." — Laszlo Kiss Rigo, head of the Catholic Hungarian southern community.

    • François Fillon published a book entitled, Vanquishing Islamic Totalitarianism, and he rose in the polls by vowing to control Islam and immigration: "We've got to reduce immigration to its strict minimum," Fillon said. "Our country is not a sum of communities, it is an identity!"

  • Summary: 

    Why does our government recoil “at the notion that we might actually want to scrutinize an ideology that fuels anti-American militarism”? The purge of “Islam,” “jihad,” “sharia,” and other related words from our National Security documents, counter-terrorism training, and intelligence analysis is eerily reminiscent of the warning George Orwell described in his seminal work – 1984. “The purpose of Newspeak was…to make all other modes of thought impossible…by eliminating undesirable words and by stripping such words as remained of unorthodox meaning” This policy is the “Ostrich Complex,” a synonym for Jihad Denial Syndrome (JDS). 

    Both the Bush and Obama administrations have effectively ascribed to a “see no evil” policy when it comes to Islam.            The problem is that “words convey reality,” and it is our duty as military officers to be connected to reality. Our oath requires us to “…support and defend the Constitution of the United States, against all enemies, foreign and domestic…”. Yet this administration has tasked us to focus on the euphemistic “violent extremists”, which aside from being woefully ambiguous, ignores those who may not meet the narrow definition of violent extremists – yet still meet the broader threshold of being enemies.

    • "In all of these operations children were part of the general population targeted for wholesale destruction. In many instances they were also subjected to separate and differential forms of mass murder." — Professor Vahakn Dadrian, in Children as Victims of Genocide: The Armenian Case.

    • These forms of murder included methods such as mass drowning, mass burning, sexual assaults, and mutilations.

    • "In Ankara province, near the village of Bash Ayash, two rapist-killers -- a brigand, Deli Hasan, and a gendarme, Ibrahim -- raped twelve boys, aged 12-14, and subsequently killed them. Those who did not die instantly were tortured to death while crying 'Mummy, Mummy.'" — Professor Vahakn Dadrian, in Children as Victims of Genocide: The Armenian Case.

    • When experts deny the Armenian genocide and even try to prevent the U.S. government from officially recognizing it, they are killing the victims all over again.

    Summary: 
    I would like some state-appointed or free, independent Islamic scholar -- Western or not -- to explain with a straight face to me and to the world, the essential, fundamental differences between Islam and "radical Islam" or "extremist" Islam. If Islam is not just a bizarre, "religion," but basically a collectivist ideology bent on total submission of its adherents and of the world, moved by a gnawing appetite for total and universal domination, what are the salient, distinguishing differences? How would one explain the differences, say, between “ordinary” Communism and "radical" Communism, or between  “ordinary” Nazism and a benign "moderate" Nazism? 
     
    You can’t list those distinguishing differences. They don’t exist. Islam is a one-size-fits-all system, from your footwear to your hairstyle to your diet.
    Islam is “radical” because, as both a “religion” and as a political ideology, it prescribes total submission of the individual – indeed, of society – to the arbitrary and wholly irrational rules, permissions, prohibitions, and punishments of its “creed,” otherwise known as Sharia Law. Just as Nazism and Communism required the total submission of the individual to the state, Islam requires the total submersion of the individual to the caliphate. Islam is essentially, and readily admits, totalitarian – root branch, and twig.

  • Summary: 

    Finding and connecting similar patterns of behavior throughout Islamic history is one of the most objective ways of determining whether something is or is not part of Muslim civilization.

    Consider the issue of forced conversion in Islam, a phenomenon that has a long history with ample precedents. Indeed, from its inception, most of those who embraced Islam did so under duress, beginning with the Ridda wars and during the age of conquests, and to escape dhimmi status. This is a simple fact.

    Yet, when one examines today's cases of forced conversions with those from centuries past, identical patterns emerge, demonstrating great continuity.

  • Summary: 

    Since 9/11, we often hear so-called “experts” in the West say that the Crusades especially have been the main cause for the negative attitude of Muslims towards the so-called “Christian countries,” which is totally wrong given the expansionist and violent history of Islam. A  cover story “takes for granted the idea that the Crusades constitute a looming grievance against the West that rightly resonates to this day.” While America was still an undiscovered part of the world during the Crusades in the Middle east (1095-1291), the Islam still considers the US as the Great Satan and it all can be explained because of the Crusades. The mentioned U.S. News & World Report was written by  and first published on april 31, 2002 () and republished on april 7, 2008 ().

    To obtain a good understanding of the historical background on the Crusades and the Jihad, we republish some interesting articles which are a response on the allegations in the Andrew Curry article that the Crusades are responsible for the Islamic Jihad against the West. The first article is from a newspaper column by Vincent Carroll, member of staff of the Rocky Mountain News in Denver.

  • Summary: 

    Most imams in France (and Belgium) forbid the faithful from celebrating Christmas and the New Year and call on Muslims not to extend holidays greetings

    Yet many in the West still take for granted that the vast majority of Muslims in the West are really seeking to become integrated into Western society. Most people are slow to realize that stealth jihadists and Islamic supremacists see infidels as inferiors and seek to conquer us and replace our constitution with the Sharia.

  • Summary: 
    • Last July, for the first time during a Mass in Italy, a verse of the Koran was recited from the altar.

    • A priest in the south of Italy enraged parishioners by dressing the Virgin Mary in a Muslim burqa for his church's Christmas Nativity scene. These interfaith initiatives are based on the gradual elimination of the Western-Christian heritage in favor of Islam.

    • The Catholic clergy is probably disoriented by Pope Francis himself; he was the first to allow the reading of Islamic prayers and Koran readings from the Vatican.

    • The Pope embraced religious relativism when it comes with Islam. He repeated that Islamist violence is the work of "a small group of fundamentalists" who, according to him, have nothing to do with Islam.

    • Church of England Bishop Harries suggested that Prince Charles's coronation service should be opened with a Koran reading. In the US, more than 50 churches, including the Washington National Cathedral, hold Koran readings. Is there any reading of the Christian liturgy in mosques?

    • How is it that so few Christian leaders have raised their voices against this unprecedented attack on a Christian monument? Have they organized so many Koran readings in their own churches so that they now view it as normal to convert a church into a mosque?

    • Would it not be better for the Catholic Church to establish a real dialogue with the Islamic communities based on principles such as reciprocity (if you build mosques in Europe, we build churches in the Middle East), protection of Christian minorities in the Crescent and theological repudiation of jihad against "infidels"?
