  • History Explains Eastern European Hostility to Islam

    Why have several Eastern European nations been so adamant against taking in Muslim migrants? Most recently, when Polish lawmaker Dominik Tarczyński was asked earlier this month how many "refugees" Poland has taken in, he flatly responded: "Zero." When the British interviewer, whose nation has taken in millions of Muslim migrants, scoffed, "And you're proud of that?," he said: "We will not receive even one Muslim, because this is what we promised [to voters] ... this is why our government was elected; this is why Poland is so safe, this is why we have not had even one terror attack." Considering...
  • The Direct Connection Between Devoutness in Islam and Violence

    It is commonplace for Leftists and Islamic apologists in the West to claim that jihadis are ignorant of Islam, and indifferent to it. “Terrorists don’t kill for their religion,” asserted an article published in the World Economic Forum last year, just one of many that claim the same thing. Yet again and again we see just the opposite: jihadis are devout, informed Muslims. Here is yet another example: According to the Times Ledger, a Muslim named Ahmed Parveg “pleaded guilty in a Brooklyn federal court last month to helping the overseas terrorist organization ISIS.” Parveg “traveled to Saudi Arabia [in]...
  • France: A Second Jihad in the Bataclan?

    "The French Suicide" ("Le suicide français") is a book published by the author Éric Zemmour in October 2014. Just one year later, on November 13, 2015 in Paris, a horror took place at the Bataclan Theater, when three terrorists fired into the crowd during a concert, murdered 130 people, and injured 413. Some of the victims had been tortured. The French population reacted as usual: shock and horror quickly gave way to resignation and submission. Flowers, candles and teddy bears were placed at the scene of the attacks. The government promised to act, but did almost nothing. A ceremony was...

    A brave woman has revealed how she was brutally raped and abused by more than 70 men - but most are still walking the streets today. Kate Elysia, who was 18 when she was first raped, says she believed she was an inhuman "sex thing" after being repeatedly attacked. A victim of grooming gangs, she says she was trafficked "all over England" and given to many men - sometimes up to 10 in one night. “They degraded me to the point where I’d become this sex thing, this thing that wasn’t human, but just an object,” she says in a...

    More than a hundred people have been killed in a suicide bombing in Pakistan as tensions rise in the country ahead of an election on July 25. At least 128 people died in the explosion at an election rally in the southwestern province of Baluchistan. Siraj Raisani, a candidate running for a provincial assembly, was among those killed in the town of Mastung. It was the deadliest attack in Pakistan in four years. Hours after the bombing, former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was arrested after making a high-profile return to the country. Sharif was given a 10-year prison sentence in...

    Sam Brownback, the U.S. Ambassador for International Religious Freedom, complained to the British ambassador in Washington D.C. about the treatment of an English right-wing activist who is in jail for disrupting a trial, according to three sources familiar with the discussion. Brownback raised the case of the activist known as Tommy Robinson in a June meeting with Sir Kim Darroch, Britain's Ambassador to the United States, according to a British official and two sources close to the organizers of a pro-Robinson demonstration planned for London on Saturday. Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, though he also uses other aliases,...

    One of the interesting aspects of Fr. James Schall’s refreshing collection of essays, On Islam, is that it provides a chronological record. The first essay appeared in 2003, the last in 2018. This allows the reader to see how our understanding of Islam has changed over those years. Unfortunately, it hasn’t changed much at all. In 2003 we understood next to nothing about Islam, and in 2018 it’s still next to nothing.One of Fr. Schall’s main themes is that we must try to understand Islam as Muslims understand it, not as we would like it to be. But instead of...
  • Austria to shut down mosques, expel foreign-funded imams

    07/10/2018 5:35:16 PM PDT · by ATOMIC_PUNK · 28 replies
    VIENNA (Reuters) - Austria’s right-wing government plans to shut seven mosques and could expel dozens of imams in what it said was “just the beginning” of a push against radical Islam and foreign funding of religious groups that Turkey condemned as racist. The coalition government, an alliance of conservatives and the far right, came to power soon after Europe’s migration crisis on promises to prevent another influx and restrict benefits for new immigrants and refugees. The moves follow a “law on Islam”, passed in 2015, which banned foreign funding of religious groups and created a duty for Muslim organizations to...

    A doctor who has lived in Verona for 20 years intends to open an Islamic Center at the site of the former Congregation Beth Ahm synagogue at 56 Grove Avenue. Dr. Montaser Awad built a career as a specialist in internal medicine and is now a professor at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. But he believes it is also his duty to create a compelling place of worship for his fellow Muslims and to build bridges between Islam and the community he has come to love. “I am 63 years old,” Dr. Awad says. “I have a position and I...

    There have been nightly riots in the banlieues of the French city of Nantes for the last few days after a “youth” was shot to death by police. The puir wee bairn had rammed a cop with his car, trying to run him over, so the police shot him. Oh, the humanity! Now the mischievous youngsters are engaged in the traditional culture-enriching pastimes of throwing Molotov cocktails at police while torching buildings and cars.

    AN ISIS executioner who burned soldiers to death in a sick propaganda video has been killed in a firefight. Abu Talha al Turki was living with a $320,000 (£240,000) bounty on his head after his role in a horrific execution of two Turkish soldiers. The terror kingpin had been placed on the Turkish police’s “Blue List” of most wanted fugitives. Al Turki appeared in a sick video in 2016 burning alive two soldiers as they stood chained to a stake. The terrorist appeared wearing all black and carrying a machine gun and was the one who ignited the fire using...

    NYTimes ^ | July 1, 2018
    Starting at the age of 1, “ghetto children” must be separated from their families for at least 25 hours a week, not including nap time, for mandatory instruction in “Danish values,” including the traditions of Christmas and Easter, and Danish language. Noncompliance could result in a stoppage of welfare payments. Other Danish citizens are free to choose whether to enroll children in preschool up to the age of six. Denmark’s government is introducing a new set of laws to regulate life in 25 low-income and heavily Muslim enclaves, saying that if families there do not willingly merge into the country’s...

    Or, to put it another way, is there such as thing as an unbelieving Believer? One of the great fallacies of Western Europe's multicultural fantasy is that the children of imported Musselmen will become less Muslim and that, eventually, their offspring will become more like their nominally Christian but in fact entirely secular hosts. Accordingly, the British and others now dealing with the consequences of their willfully ahistorical blindness regarding the true nature of Islam, have assumed that "radical" Muslims are the exception rather than the rule, and so have treated them as aberrational.This, however, flies in the face...
