Diabs lawyer, a Muslim called Ahmad Sayed Gabali, said he had never seen anything like it in 18 years of practicing law. More than 80 Islamic lawyers representing the plaintiffs filled the courtroom. They locked the door from the inside, preventing the judge from leaving and preventing me from entering the courtroom to defend my client.
All of this arose from a 9 February discussion between Makram Diab, who is a school secretary, and a Salafi teacher. The discussion was heated, but ended with no apparent consequences.

Anyone with any brains saw this coming. I remember all of my idiot facebook friends cheering the revolution in Egypt and me telling them they had no idea what they were cheering for. Now its just going to be more of the same, Muslims exterminating Christians while the world looks the other way.
A: A good start!
Oops! I appear to have told a joke which has insulted the 'prophet' moHAMed.
I guess the 'sharia police' better come and [try to] arrest me!
PS - I live in Culpeper County, Virginia - Rixeyville to be precise. My last name starts with the letters Step---.
A word of warning, though, we have a lot of ammunition on hand, our sniper positions (and maybe a few other surprises) do NOT show up on the Google Earth aerial photos of the property, and everyone who lives in the house can shoot reasonably straight, including the cats.
PPS - Okay, I was kidding about the cats...
Sounds like the crowds going after the apostles in the book of Acts.
God will prevail.
Spray em down with DDT.
Of all the persecuted minorities, saving the Christians in MENA should be a top priority for the next pubbie prez.
Bring them here. All of them. We will get:
Millions of voters who really understand islam.
Two divisions of infantry who speak Arabic.
A lot of exotic new restaurants.
Still think it’s a religion of peace, Jorge?
A tremendous amount of American blood and treasure have been wasted over the last ten years. And for what?
Just following the instructions in their holy books. Nothing to see. Move on.
Sura (2:191-193) - "And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution of Muslims is worse than slaughter of non-believers...and fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah."
Sura (4:74) - "Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward."
Sura (4:76) - "Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah "
Sura (5:33) - "The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement"
Sura (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"
Sura (8:39) - "And fight with them until there is no more persecution and religion should be only for Allah"
Sura (8:57) - "If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember."
Sura (9:14) - "Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace..."
Sura (9:29) - "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, even if they are of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued."
Sura (9:30) - "And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!"
Sura (9:123) - "O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness."
Sura (47:4) - "So when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until when you have overcome them, then make them prisoners,"
Sura (61:4) - "Surely Allah loves those who fight in His way"
Sura (66:9) - "O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern with them. Hell will be their home, a hapless journey's end
From the Hadith:
Muslim (1:33) - the Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah
Bukhari (8:387) - Allah's Apostle said, I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah
Tabari 7:97 The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared, "Kill any Jew who falls under your power."
Ibn Ishaq: 327 - Allah said, A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.
Ibn Ishaq: 992 - "Fight everyone in the way of Allah and kill those who disbelieve in Allah."
The Koran and hadiths are replete with examples of Muhammad's barbaric behavior. Robert Spencer does a good job here explaining Islam - Blogging the Quran Start at the bottom.
