    As you know by now, last weekend Pamela Geller held a Mohammed Art Exhibit in Texas. That event was attacked by two jihadists wearing body armor and carrying semi-automatic weapons. Luckily, they were shot immediately upon arrival by a police officer with his handgun. Since the event ISIS has issued a fatwa, otherwise known as a death sentence, on Pam Geller's head. Last night on Hannity radical Imam Anjem Choudary, who represents a significant portion of British Muslims, justified the death sentence. "You're talking about people who deliberately had a competition to insult the messenger Muhammed, peace be upon him...

    The death sentence of Asia Bibi, a Christian woman and mother of five children, was upheld by the Lahore High Court in Pakistan on Thursday. Bibi has been convicted of blasphemy for drinking from the same bowl of water as Muslims and making derogatory comments about the prophet Muhammad. "The case against Asia Bibi is a great example of how Christians and other religious minorities are abused in Pakistan by fundamentalists wielding the controversial blasphemy laws. The blasphemy laws were originally written to protect against religious intolerance in Pakistan, but the law has warped into a tool used by extremists...

There is no way a socialist enterprise can compete with a free market one due to the lack of profit incentives which are replaced with political ones.

    No one outside the government of Iran knows for know for sure if Youcef Nadarkhani is still alive. It’s believed his execution order has already been signed. Despite pressure from Iranian officials, the 34 year-old pastor has refused to deny Christ and “accept the prophet Muhammad as his savior." He was first detained by the Islamic regime in 2009. This week the White House released this statement: “The United States condemns in the strongest possible terms reports that Iranian authorities’ reaffirmed a death sentence for Iranian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani for the sole reason of his refusal to recant his Christian...

    After ongoing judicial deferments inside Iran and a steady stream of other world-tilting events outside, the hot international story of Iranian Christian pastor Youcef Nadarkhani had cooled for a few months. But, now, it’s back on the front burner again, as the Ayatollah and the state courts ruled last week that the original capital punishment sentence brought to bear on the pastor for apostasy would, indeed, stand. Available for interviews to break down the sharia law context around this case is a most unexpected individual. IQ al-Rassooli is an Iraqi-born religious scholar and Middle East affairs analyst on a crusade...
