    Christian Post ^ | 11/28/2018 | Samuel Smith
    A former Nigerian imam-turned-pastor who says Islam’s holy book helped confirm to him that Jesus Christ is the son of God, has detailed the persecution his family has endured because of their Christian faith. The pastor, who for security purposes will be referred to as “John,” recently spoke with The Christian Post for an hourlong interview about his family’s ordeal in which one of their son's was murdered after they were forced into hiding in different states across Nigeria before traveling to the United States this year to seek asylum. John was born to a Hausa Fulani family in the...

    Premier reported Saturday that “the Diocese of Oxford is defending its invitation to a Muslim scholar to preach at a eucharist service.” “Inter faith champion Monawar Hussain” is set to speak after the service at St Mary’s Anglican church, although “the original advert suggested he would deliver the sermon during the service.” How wonderful and broad-minded! When is the mosque going to feature a Christian priest delivering the Friday khutba? Adrian Hilton of the Archbishop Cranmer blog said: “He will no doubt be preaching about love, peace, reconciliation and tolerance, all of which would be laudable topics for an...

    Already missing from the news cycle is the story of Muslim leader Siraj Wahhaj, who alerted authorities to the squalid conditions in New Mexico in which his son, two daughters, another man and woman, and 11 children were living.Authorities arrived at the compound to some of the most horrifying conditions they had ever seen, and prosecutors identified the makeshift home as a training ground for militant children, including in carrying out school shootings. The imam’s son had been wanted for kidnapping his own four-year-old child, who had severe disabilities. The body of a young child was recovered from the...

    Danish prosecutors on Tuesday charged an imam with calling for the killing of Jews in the first case of its kind in the Nordic nation and which sparked political outrage. Imam Mundhir Abdallah, who preaches in the Copenhagen neighbourhood of Norrebro at the Masjid Al-Faruq mosque, which media have linked to radical Islam, is accused of citing a hadith or koranic narrative calling for Muslims to rise up against Jews. “Judgement Day will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them,” Abdallah said in a Facebook and YouTube video post in March.

    Last winter, the local media was touting Imam Abdullah Khadra as a victim of President Trump’s travel ban. Khadra, a Syrian, was here on a religious worker visa and was applying for political asylum. The refugee Imam living in North Carolina called Trump's move, "absolutely inhumane and ridiculous." Jewish leftists agreed. Lucy Dinner, the clergywoman from Temple Beth Or in Raleigh, denounced "singling out an entire group of people based on their faith." Lucy Dinner had previously signed a letter in support of anti-Israel activism by Eric and Jennifer Solomon. Eric Solomon was affiliated with the anti-Israel hate group, T’ruah,...

    Imam Ammar Shahin is taking heat for a sermon at the Islamic Center of Davis (ICD) last Friday in which he called on Allah to annihilate Jews and “let us a play a part in this,” and liberate the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Israel from “the filth of the Jews.” The Al-Aqsa Mosque is in East Jerusalem, on a holy site for both Jews and Muslims, and has been riddled with conflict and bloodshed as the war rages on between the two sides. Jewish groups are up in arms and calling on Homeland Security. A Muslim within the community chalked it...

    President Donald Trump attended an interfaith service at the Washington National Cathedral on January 21st. It was a beautiful service until an Imam read from the Quran, cursing Christians and Jews. Of course he recited this prayer in Arabic so the only people attending who were able to understand him were most likely Muslim.

    From the Thursday edition of the Morning Jolt… Rep. Keith Ellison’s Imam: Homosexuality Is ‘Not What God Intended’ BuzzFeed has decided that the world needed an expose of the religious views of the pastor of Chip and Joanna Gaines, host of the Fixer Upper series on HGTV. And because the editorial team at Buzzfeed deems those mainstream traditional Christian views controversial, they concluded that the hosts must be hounded until they publicly express their views on the topic. So are the Gaineses against same-sex marriage? And would they ever feature a same-sex couple on the show, as have HGTV’s House...

    Observers are warning about Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s increasingly neo-Ottoman stance and disregard for secular prerogatives.” Indeed, and this new appointment essentially completes the motion of making the Hagia Sophia into a functioning mosque again. European Union officials ought to see this for what it is: a decisive rejection of any pretense of dealing with the Christian or post-Christian West on a mutually respectful basis. Erdogan is an Islamic supremacist and is pursuing an openly supremacist imperative. European officials who are still pushing for Turkey’s entry into the EU, as well as the ongoing phenomenon of massive Muslim immigration...

    For more than a decade, Suleiman Anwar Bengharsa has served as a Muslim cleric in Maryland, working as a prison chaplain and as an imam at mosques in Annapolis and outside Baltimore. He gave a two-week course in 2011 on Islamic teachings on marriage at the Islamic Society of Baltimore, where President Obama made a much-publicized visit this year. But in the last two years, Imam Bengharsa’s public pronouncements have taken a dark turn. On Facebook, he has openly endorsed the Islamic State, posted gruesome videos showing ISIS fighters beheading and burning alive their enemies and praised terrorist attacks overseas....

    Anjem Choudary, the British hate-spewing Islamic preacher, has been found guilty of supporting Islamic State. He faces up to ten years of prison time. Choudary will be familiar to some of our readers. He used to appear on Fox News talk shows to defend the actions of terrorists. Often with a smile. Or was it a smirk? Choudary was convicted at the Old Bailey. Jurors heard testimony that he swore an oath of allegiance to ISIS and that he told his supporters to obey ISIS head Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and travel to Syria to support “the caliphate.” ISIS has proudly...

He sang the alarming outburst which was filmed in Verviers, east Belgium, and police added that the boy has been recognised and is on a list on radicalised people. A source told the Daily Telegraph that the youngster is the son of a local radical imam - a leader of a mosque. The source added...
