    The Sara-Nussbaum-Haus Kindergarten in Kassel has made it clear: no Christmas tree, no Christmas songs, no Christmas spirit. Kassel is a city in central Germany; approximately 12% of the population of 200,000 are foreign or have foreign roots. Teachers will forgo Christian rituals to accommodate the “diverse cultures” of their students. A city representative announced, “There will be no Christmas celebrations, in the strictest sense. Because the majority of children at this Kindergarten are not Christian, Christmas will not be celebrated in the way that it is at other schools.” The city of Kassel confirmed that there had not been...

    A scholar of Islam has warned of civil war across Europe as more young Muslims facing poor job prospects turn to radical groups, it has been reported. Professor Gilles Kepel, from the Sciences Po in Paris, France, said a growing 'Jihad Generation' is likely to continue to carry out terror acts in European cities. The aim of their terror activity is to both incite hatred towards Muslims and, in doing so, cause further radicalisation among young people, the professor of political science said.

But the fact that people, who had been taken in by Germany, then took an ax and a bomb, respectively, and turned on those who had offered help, has highlighted the disturbing side of migration.

Shocking U.K. government statistics reveal that nearly 900 Syrian migrants were arrested in 2015 for a variety of offenses — including those of a sexual nature. “The government seems not to have vetted those it has invited into the country,” UKIP MEP Ray Finch said. The stunning revelation came after a freedom of information request filed by The Sun. Police figures from Northumbria to London to Nottinghamshire revealed 897 arrests for a wide variety crimes in 2015....

    Over half of asylum seekers are young, nearly three-quarters male Over 1.3 million migrants applied for asylum in the European Union in 2015. That number is double the previous record high of 700,000 in 1992, the year the Soviet Union collapsed, according to the new report from the Pew Research Center. Most of the EU’s left-leaning political leaders have thrown their borders open to the colossal surge of migrants from war-torn and terrorism-stricken nations. Roughly half of these refugees hail from three countries: Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. Most alarming for EU-member nations, currently experiencing waves of sexual assaults and other...

    American media has been noticeably silent about the Molotov cocktail firebombing of a bus in Paris last week by a large gang which yelled ‘Allah Akbar.’ The attack happened just after midnight on July 28 in the Paris neighborhood of Saint-Denis. Video shows a roadblock stopping the bus in the street and then a group of young males proceeding to throw Molotov cocktails into the city bus. The bus bursts into flames and burns down into a metal hull. French publication Figaro reported that gang members told the bus driver and five passengers to get out of the bus before...

    MEMBERS of the public caught up in a terror attack in the UK should run as far away as possible rather than immediately take cover and hide, a top police officer has said. Britons were warned yesterday that it was a matter of "when, not if" a terror attack will happen on British soil. And Scotland Yard Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said those caught up in an attack should only hide once they had escaped as far away from the attackers as they could. He said: "Let's be really clear - run as far away as possible and when you...

    A new foundation will be created to help finance mosques in France and keep out radical benefactors, the head of the French Muslim Council said Monday. Anouar Kbibech proposed the foundation would be used to fund the construction and running of mosques and would be financed by fees paid by actors in the halal food sector. France, home to Europe’s largest Muslim community, is a secular state that prohibits the use of state money for places of worship. Prime minister Manuel Valls said Sunday he wants to put an end to the financing from abroad for the construction of mosques....

    In a gesture of solidarity following the gruesome killing of a French priest, Muslims on Sunday attended Catholic Mass in churches and cathedrals across France and beyond. Reporters on the scene said that between 100 and 200 Muslims gathered at the towering Gothic cathedral in Rouen, only a few kilometers (miles) from Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray, where the 85-year-old Rev. Jacques Hamel was killed by two teenage attackers on Tuesday. “We’re very touched,” Archbishop Dominique Lebrun told broadcaster BFMTV. “It’s an important gesture of fraternity. They’ve told us, and I think they’re sincere, that it’s not Islam which killed Jacques Hamel.” …

Catholic authorities steadfastly refuse to believe in the existence of imperatives in the Qur’an and Sunnah that...
