    It may seem an innocent enough act to warm up your sausage roll in the microwave during lunch hour. But think again, because doing so could seriously upset colleagues of certain faiths, new guidelines on the etiquette of using communal kitchens at work suggest. Similarly, it would also be advisable to avoid keeping bacon rolls in a fridge shared with people whose religious beliefs prohibit them from eating pork. Adam Dinham, professor of faith and public policy at Goldsmiths, University of London, has drawn up a religious literacy programme due to be presented to employers this week. He said: ‘The...

    The Australian government’s focus on national security and the war on terror to tackle Islamic extremism, rather than social cohesion and inclusion, has helped create an environment for radicalized Muslim youth to emerge in disproportionate numbers, experts say.Authorities in Australia are grappling with a rise in violence perpetrated by teenagers at home as well as battling to halt the flow of those who are attempting to travel to Syria to fight with Islamic extremists. The murder of a police accountant in Sydney on Friday by a boy of Iraqi-Kurdish descent is the latest in a spate of attacks linked to...

    President Obama is pushing back against the idea that he’s been outmaneuvered in Syria by Russian President Vladimir Putin since the two met at the United Nations on Monday. Obama appeared frustrated by the suggestion during a press conference this afternoon, dismissing it as a notion only talked about in the Washington D.C. “Sometimes the conversation here in the Beltway differs from the conversation internationally,” Obama responded. Obama accused Putin of acting in Syria “out of weakness,” repeatedly referring to Russia’s weakening economy. He also compared his coalition to act against ISIS in Syria to Putin’s unilateral decision to prop...

    While the hostilities between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama have long been an open secret, the depth of the breakdown in relations between the two was demonstrated on Wednesday, as it was revealed Obama twice refused to veto a UN resolution establishing a Palestinian state. Politico revealed Thursday that Democratic Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid asked White House chief of staff Denis McDonough twice this year to have Obama publicly announce he would veto a UN Security Council call establishing “Palestine.” On both occasions, Obama flatly ignored the request. Reid had made the requests in an...

    Germany's domestic intelligence chief warned ON Sunday of a radicalisation of Right-wing groups amid a record influx of migrants, as xenophobic rallies and clashes shook several towns at the weekend. President Joachim Gauck meanwhile warned of Germany's "finite capacity" to absorb refugees, cautioning against more "tensions between newcomers and established residents". Domestic spy chief Hans-Georg Maassen said that "what we're seeing in connection with the refugee crisis is a mobilisation on the street of Right-wing extremists, but also of some Left-wing extremists" who oppose them. He added, speaking on Deutschlandfunk public radio, that for the past few years his service...

The arrangement was first revealed in confidential draft agreement between the sides seen last month by The...

    Middle school parents in Tennessee are up in arms on learning that their children were instructed to recite and write, “Allah is the only god,” as part of a world history project.In the Maury County School District, students were assigned a Five Pillars of Islam project that included the translation of the pillar of “Shahada” as being, “There is no god but Allah; Muhammad is his prophet.”Joy Ellis, the mother of a seventh-grader at Spring Hill Middle School, said that Christian children should not be instructed to write the Shahada.“This is a seventh grade state standard, and will be on...

    RCMP investigator Brahim Soussi did his best to persuade the 15-year-old suspect sitting across from him that they were not all that different. They were both Muslim immigrants from North Africa, eldest sons and Arabic speakers, he noted. The boy, who had just been arrested for a convenience store armed robbery and was suspected of planning to leave Canada to join the jihad in Syria, was having none of it. “You are a traitor,” the teen, who cannot be identified because he is a minor, told Soussi. He said that by working for the Canadian state, the police officer was...

    There’s a ridiculous politically correct level of liberalism; then there’s a moonbat level liberalism; and then there’s somewhere so far out ahead of moonbattery that the light from where moonbat liberalism emanates wouldn’t reach it for a year.A Bavarian town decides to house Mid-East “refugees” in the local grade school gymnasium. Then the school sends home letters with the female grade-schoolers, telling the parents to insure their daughters dress appropriately so as not to provoke the sexual inclinations of the Muslim men being housed:

    Some of the most strident opponents of the nuclear accord with Iran are invoking memories of the Holocaust in an effort to defeat the agreement, arguing the deal could enhance Iran’s ability to build a bomb, leading to the destruction of Israel. Those arguments, however, failed to sway two senators who grew up hearing stories of the Holocaust firsthand, despite fierce opposition to the deal from Israeli leaders and some Jewish groups. “My parents told me at a young age what it was like to live in fear,” said Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore. “For German Jews, the fear was always...

    Mediaite ^ | September 9, 2015 | Palin Calls #BlackLivesMatter Protesters ‘Dogs’ at Anti-Iran Deal Rally
    Among the speakers at today’s anti-Iran nuclear deal rally in Washington, D.C., was Sarah Palin, who worked a vicious comment about the #BlackLivesMatter movement into her remarks before shifting gears to focus on the topic at hand. [...] “Oh, and you know, since our president won’t say it, since he still hasn’t called off the dogs, we’ll say,” Palin said. “Police officers and first responders all across this great land, we’ve got your back, we salute you! Thank you, police officers!”

    Let’s review: American schools under Common Core are teaching our children the shahada (the Muslim declaration of faith inscribed on the black flag of jihad). Schools in Europe will stop serving pork in schools to avoid offending Muslims. Magazine editors in Europe are murdered in cold-blood because they ran cartoons of Muhammad. An event we organized in Texas was the target of a mass murder attempt by jihadis because Muhammad was depicted. I have a fatwa on my head for organizing the event.And still more submission, more surrender is required. Just the way I was attacked for organizing an art...

    Senior diplomatic officials in Jerusalem rushed on Thursday night to respond to the news that US President Barack Obama had secured the necessary congressional support to overcome opposition to the nuclear deal with Iran. “There is an overwhelming majority of the American public and members of Congress who are opposed to the agreement with Iran,” one official in Jerusalem argued. “Even supporters of the agreement say the United States should further strengthen its relationship and alliance with Israel.” …
