    A Malaysian woman held for months in an Islamic rehabilitation centre says she was subjected to mental torture for insisting her religion is Hinduism. Revathi Massosai, the name by which she wants to be known, says she was forced to eat beef despite being a Hindu. Miss Massosai was seized by the Islamic authorities in January when she went to court to ask that she be registered as a Hindu rather than a Muslim

    Immigrants wishing to live in a small Canadian town have been told they must not stone women to death in public, burn them alive or throw acid on them. This extraodinary set of rules has been released by the local council of Herouxville, Quebec. The declaration, published on the town's Website, has deepened tensions in the predominantly French-speaking province over how tolerant Quebecers should be toward the customs and traditions of immigrants. "We wish to inform these new arrivals that the way of life which they abandoned when they left their countries of origin cannot be recreated here," said the...

  • Liberal college students intolerant of McCain's diversity (HUMOR if it Weren't the Truth)

    NEW YORK -- Arizona Sen. John McCain received a cantankerous reception during his appearance at the New School commencement Friday, where dozens of faculty members and students turned their backs and raised signs in protest and a distinguished student speaker pointedly mocked him as he sat silently nearby. The historically liberal university has been roiled in controversy in recent weeks over the selection of McCain, a conservative Republican and likely 2008 presidential candidate, to deliver the commencement address. Some 1,200 students and faculty signed petitions asking the university president, former Nebraska Sen. Bob Kerrey, to rescind the invitation. Petitioners said...

    The elevator door in Jerusalem's City Hall opens on the ground floor and inside stands Mayor Uri Lupolianski with his bodyguard. Waiting for the elevator is Sa'ar Netanel, the forthrightly gay city councilman and nemesis of the haredi mayor. Grinning in full gloat, Netanel – dressed in casual-to-sloppy Jerusalem style, with shirt tails hanging over his loose jeans – gets in and asks the mayor provocatively, "What, don't I get a mazal tov [congratulations]?" Lupolianski – short, well-tailored, every bit the confident mayor – responds in kind. "Mazal tov for what?" he quips. "Did you just have a son? When...

    Islamist zealots attack Ahmadiyya Mosque in Bangladesh Unruly Islamist zealots attacked an Ahmadiyya mosque and the homes of a number of leaders of the minority Muslim sect in south-western Satkhira district of Bangladesh on Sunday. Witnesses said several hundred bigots brought out a procession in Joginagar village of Samnagar Upazial of the district, demanding that members of the Ahmadiyya community be officially declared 'non-Muslim'. They marched towards the mosque and replaced a signboard inscribed with "It's not a mosque and no Muslim will enter here for namaj (prayer)" instead of the "Ahmadiyya mosque". "The Islamist bigots captured the mosque complex...
  • The plight of Jews in Afghanistan.

    ...The Taliban was ousted by U.S.-led forces in 2001. The fact that both remaining Jews survived the Taliban's five-year reign is something of a miracle. Taliban authorities, determined to stamp out practices they considered un-Islamic, outlawed music, whipped men who failed to grow long beards and demolished two enormous Buddha statues that were carved into a cliff 13 centuries ago. Kabul's synagogue, an unassuming, white-washed building that was erected around a small courtyard on Flower Street 40 years ago, may have escaped a similar fate because it was so modest, and also because it was deserted and in disrepair when...

    No Name Calling Week?     1/12/2005By Warren Throckmorton, Ph.D.Yes, name-calling is wrong. But this event’s sponsors reveal the agenda behind banning it. “There is a special place in hell for people like you!” These words were directed at me by a teacher during this past summer’s National Education Association (NEA) convention in Washington, D.C. This delegate to the NEA convention made his prediction in response to my presence at the NEA’s Ex-Gay Educators’ Caucus booth in the convention exhibit hall. His cheery salutation caught me off-guard given the message of tolerance and acceptance I had been hearing around the exhibit hall....

    Muslim militants have threatened to kill Christian nurses serving at the Federal Medical Center in the town of Keffi, in the central state of Nasarawa, unless they stop conducting Christian worship services. An undated letter received by hospital management and the hospital’s chapter of the Fellowship of Christian Nurses (FCN) stated, “We are making it abundantly clear that our thirst for your heads/blood is mounting daily if you continue with your worship services in the hospital unabated.” Subsequently, the medical director and chief executive at Keffi Federal Medical Center banned Christian-related activities at the facility and banned the FCN chapter...

    "But the enemy is not just 'terrorism,' some generic evil. This vagueness blurs the strategy. The catastrophic threat at this moment in history is more specific. It is the threat posed by Islamist terrorism -- especially the al Qaeda network, its affiliates, and its ideology."9-11 Commission Report, p. 379 This paragraph from the 9/11 Commission Report should come as no surprise to TCS readers.

The Temple Mount - Judaism's holiest site - was closed to Jews today in response to Muslim threats of violence if Jews were allowed to visit. The decision was made by Jerusalem Police Chief Ilan Franco, citing the threat of Arab violence toward Jews who would enter the holy site. The closure is particularly painful for many Jews, as today is the Fast of Tisha B'Av - the 9th of the Jewish month of...

European intelligence sources say almost a decade after the end of the war in the former Yugoslavia, Bosnia and Herzegovina has become a "one-stop shop" for Islamic militants heading from terrorist battlegrounds in Chechnya and Afghanistan to Iraq.

Speaking of the plan yesterday Maulana Imran Hosein said it was born of the need to protect and preserve Islam from the ills of society such as alcohol, fornication, adultery, illegitimate children, homosexuality, lesbianism and murders.

    BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A headless corpse dressed in an orange jumpsuit has been found by Iraqi police in the Tigris River and handed over to U.S. forces, but it has not yet been identified, a U.S. military spokeswoman said Thursday. She said it was not known whether the body was that of a Bulgarian hostage killed by his captors earlier this week. A deadline for the threatened execution of a second Bulgarian hostage passed last night without news. The body was found near Baiji, 112 miles north of Baghdad, Wednesday night. "The body had been decapitated. It was dressed in...

    PARIS, July 11 (AFP) - French officials, civil rights groups and Jewish associations at the weekend expressed outrage at a new anti-Semitic attack committed just as President Jacques Chirac and his government vowed to crack down on racist acts. Chirac himself on Saturday called the attack, on a 23-year-old mother and her 13-month-old baby, "shameful" and said in a statement that the perpetrators must be found and punished with the full severity of the law. The assault occurred early Friday, when six unidentified men said to be of North African Arab and African origin grabbed the victim as she travelled...
