    As such, the bill expands upon Egypt’s current blasphemy law which penalizes speaking or writing about the Prophet, Allah and the first Caliphas For the past two weeks in Cairo, a resistance movement has been gaining momentum against a recent transgression by Al-Azhar Institute to insert newly constructed taxpayer-funded “fatwa” (edict) kiosks into every subway stop in the city. The trial began in one of the busiest subway stations—overcrowded and overwhelmed with chaos—where The Islamic Research Center under the auspices of Al-Azhar Sunni Institute placed its first kiosk. Acting outside the law that requires permits to construct and install kiosks,...

    North American Islamic scholars have issued a legal ruling or “fatwa” in the wake of Donald Trump’s stunning victory and imminent presidency, instructing the faithful on what to expect and how they should respond to shifting political realities. Changes are coming, warns the Assembly of Muslim Jurist of America, and Muslims are told to get ready. The fatwa is titled “AMJA Post-Election Statement: Principles and Roadmap.” While the fatwa received no media attention, this declaration contains the principles to which imams in the nation’s more than 3,100 mosques will be looking for guidance on how to instruct their congregations.

    ..... When Salman Rushdie's The Satanic Verses came out in 1989, Viking Penguin, the British and American publisher of the novel, was subjected to daily Islamist harassment. ...the London office resembled "an armed camp," with police protection, metal detectors and escorts for visitors. In Viking's New York offices, dogs sniffed packages and the place was designated a "sensitive location". Many bookshops were attacked and many even refused to sell the book. Viking spent about $3 million on security measures in 1989, the fatal year for Western freedom of expression. Nonetheless, Viking never flinched. It was a miracle that the novel...

    The Islamic State has reportedly issued a fatwa ordering the elimination of children with Down syndrome and other congenital disabilities, reminiscent of Hitler’s infamous “Aktion T4” program, which administered forced “euthanasia” on an estimated 300,000 disabled persons. According to the Iraqi activist blog Mosul Eye, sharia judges have ruled that ISIS followers are authorized to kill infants with Down Syndrome or congenital deformities. Already since the religious decree (fatwa) was issued, militants have killed at least 38 children between one week and three months old by lethal injection or suffocation. In a post on the Mosul Eye Facebook page, the...

    Islamist Cleric Attacks Pokemon-Go ^ | July 19, 2016 | The Common Constitutionalist
    This year, February 27, Pokémon (pocket monster) turned 20. It was created by Japanese game designer Satoshi Tajiri for Nintendo as a video game for the old Gameboy handheld video game platform. My sons still own theirs. It was introduced to the United States in 1998. Nintendo was quick to capitalize on its popularity. The video game soon spawned a celebrated trading card game, books, movies and a television series. The tag line of Pokémon is: “Gotta Catch Em All.” Since then, at least a few of the Pokémon characters have gained international recognition. One of the most recognized characters,...

    A group of Pakistani clerics has issued a fatwa, or religious ruling, declaring "honor killing" over perceived damage to a family's reputation against the teaching of Islam, and anyone who carries out such an attack a heretic. Hundreds of Pakistanis, the vast majority women and girls, are murdered every year by relatives after being accused of damaging a family's honor. Most cases involve young women trying to chose partners against a family's wishes. The ruling by the Sunni Ittehad Council, which includes more than 100 prominent clerics, comes after a string of particularly shocking killings including the burning to death...

    The Islamic State issued a fatwa condemning to death children with Down's syndrome, according to the Facebook page Mosul Eye, which says it reports news from within Islamic-State-occupied Mosul. "The Shar'i Board of ISIL issued an 'Oral Fatwa' to its members authorizing them to 'kill newborn babies with Down's Syndrome and congenital deformities and disabled children.'

    Oral fatwa. I was going to open this piece by asking how the left can possibly explain this away in its larger campaign to deny anything wrong is going on with Islam. Then I realized that was a completely ridiculous question. If the left has a problem with killing Down Syndrome babies as ISIS demands here, it would probably be for letting them be born in the first place. Doesn’t ISIS know you can make more money by aborting them and selling the body parts? Someone get Cecile Richards in touch with Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi so ISIS can get this...

After the barbaric terrorist attacks done by the hands of my fellow Muslims everywhere on this globe, and after the too many violent acts by Islamists in many parts of the world, I feel responsible as a Mus-lim and as a human being, to speak out and tell the truth to protect the world and Muslims as well from a coming catastrophe and war of civilizations. I have to admit that our current Islamic teaching creates violence and hatred toward Non-Muslims. We Muslims are the...

    Bin Bayyah, 79 [now 80], is a prominent Muslim cleric and, as a respected religious scholar, has issued edicts to explain why groups such as the so-called Islamic State, also known as ISIL or ISIS, are misguided and should reverse course. Last week, key clerics from the Muslim world issued two fatwas, or religious edicts, against the group. One came from senior religious leaders in Saudi Arabia, and the other came from bin Bayyah.

    Straight trippin': Saudi fatwa permits the use of hallucinogenic drugs during sex with ugly wives Saudi social media users have poured scorn on a fatwa that allowed young men married to ugly women to take drugs before intimate relations in order to have the delusion they are as beautiful as houris. The fatwa said that hallucinogenic drugs can be taken for 30 minutes during sexual intercourse and only by men who are less than 40 years old. The drugs can be used only in the evening, it added. “This is the ideal men who are unfortunately married with ugly-looking wives...

    The State Department’s Counter Terrorism (CT) Bureau apologized on Tuesday for promoting a controversial Muslim scholar whose organization has reportedly backed Hamas and endorsed a fatwa authorizing the murder of U.S. soldiers in Iraq. The apology came on the heels of a Friday Washington Free Beacon report detailing the CT Bureau’s promotion of Sheik Abdallah Bin Bayyah, the vice president of a radical Muslim scholars group that was founded by a radical Muslim Brotherhood leader who has called “for the death of Jews and Americans.” Bin Bayyah himself is one of several clerics who endorsed a 2004 fatwa, or religious...

    Top Obama bundler Jodie Evans with Marxist tyrant Hugo Chavez and Barack Obama The Obama State Department this week disavowed its promotion of a Muslim cleric after it was reported by the Washington Free Beacon that the cleric, Sheik Abdallah Bin Bayyah, endorsed a fatwa in 2004 authorizing Muslims to kill U.S. troops in Iraq. At the same time, the Obama administration continues to deal with Obama funder and Code Pink co-founder Jodie Evans who helped deliver cash and humanitarian aid to “the other side” in Fallujah in 2004 and made a personal statement in 2005 supporting the killing of...

    [1]Among the latest six Jihadis freed by Obama from Gitmo as part of his mission is Saad Masir Mukbl al Azani.There are obvious reasons for freeing Saad1. He was identified as a high level Al Qaeda member by other captured terrorists.2. He issued fatwas while allegedly sitting on the fatwa committee with Osama bin Laden’s religious advisor. That may sound non-violent to the religion of peace types, but it meant he was providing the rationale for terrorist attacks.3. He helped indoctrinate Al Qaeda terrorists by teaching them the Koran.I’m sure that being loose he will in no way go...

    Iran pundits know that serious undertakings by the regime require specific authorization from the supreme leader, Obama’s pen pal Ali Khamenei. An excellent Iranian source, with an excellent track record on such matters, informs me that the supreme leader issued a fatwa on April 14th to two of Iran’s most powerful killers, Generals Mohammad — Ali Jafari (head of the Revolutionary Guards), and Qassem Suleimani (head of the Quds Force), authorizing them to take any and all actions to destroy the Saudi royal family and its regime. It’s a big deal. According to this account, Khamenei authorized Jafari and Suleimani...

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.

    Who says Islam is not adapting to the times? Fatwas issued by top clerics in Turkey and Saudi Arabia this week might be shocking to much of the civilized world, but they do indicate change. In Turkey, the top religious authority, known as the Directorate of Religious Affairs or Divanet, proclaimed that though water is the preferred method of cleansing oneself after using the toilet, paper is now an acceptable alternative if a water source is unavailable, reports the nation’s Hurriyet Daily News. [Snip] Meanwhile, in Saudi Arabia the grand mufti has reportedly found a new definition of halal –...

    Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Asheikh has denied issuing a fatwa that states it is permissible for a starving man to save himself by eating the flesh of a woman. In a statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency on Thursday, Al-Asheikh said the religious edict was false and created by Islam’s enemies to slander him and “keep the community busy squabbling over irrelevant issues instead of standing united behind the rightly guided rulers.” “The fatwa attributed to us is wrong. It is nothing but lies ... It has been circulated to distort the image of Islam, which has elevated...
