    A mother who beat her son to death for failing to learn the Koran by heart murdered him and burned his body to hide the evidence, a jury has found.Sara Ege, 33, treated her son Yaseen like a "dog," brutally beating him with a stick for failing to memorise religious texts. The seven-year-old died in July 2010 from internal injuries caused by three months of punishing beatings from his own mother. Ege accused her husband, Yousef, of being the real killer throughout her murder trial at Cardiff Crown Court. But he was cleared on Wednesday of failing to act to...

    If caught, a fine of $180 will be imposedA village council in the eastern Indian state of Bihar has banned the use of mobile phones by women, saying the phones were "debasing the social atmosphere" by leading to elopements - a move that set off outraged protests from activists. In addition to the ban, the Sunderbari village council in a Muslim-dominated area some 385 kilometers (239 miles) east of Patna, the capital of Bihar, has also imposed a fine of 10,000 rupees ($180) if a girl is caught using a mobile phone on the streets.

    Near the bottom of the pit of hell, Dante encounters a man walking with his torso split from chin to groin, his guts and other organs spilling out. See how I tear myself! the man shrieks. See how Mahomet is deformed and torn! For us, the scene is not only gruesome but surprising, for Dante is not in a circle of false religion but in a circle reserved for those who tear the body of Christ. Like many medieval Christians, Dante views Islam less as a rival religion than as a schismatic form of Christianity. A handful of Western scholars...

    The Taliban commit a relentless series of anti-human, anti-life acts on a daily basis, and not only does no one care, but Obama stalks them for peace. Stalks them. And the more he stalks, the more savage and brazen their war on humanity becomes. They're taunting us with their savagery. And Obama's subservient policy to these savages pains me as an American, and as a lover of life and of freedom. It makes me physically ill.

    Earlier this week we posted about Abdullatif Aldosary, an Iraqi Muslim refugee who set off an IED at a Social Security office in Arizona. As we reported then, an FBI source told investigative reporter Patrick Poole at PJMedia that Aldosary would not be charged with terrorism, due to political sensitivities. Now Poole has uncovered more about Aldosary which reveals yet another cover up by the Obama administration to avoid having to admit that we have been hit again by a Jihadist terrorist. According to Poole, the DHS had previously concluded that Aldosary had been involved in terrorist activities, and a...

    One empire falls and another rises in its place. Its an old story and it is what we are seeing in the Middle East. The Islamist resurgence was fed by the collapse of two world powers, the USSR and the US. The fall of the Soviet Union robbed the Arab Socialist dictatorships of their support. The last of these, Syria, is now under siege, by Sunni Islamist militias. Egypts Sadat had made the move to the American camp early enough to avoid the fate of Syria or Iraq, but instead his successor, Mubarak, encountered the fate of the Shah of...

    Why wasn't Aldosary deported? Did someone intercede on his behalf? If so, who, and on what grounds? Or was this just another in a seemingly endless line of accommodations to Muslims and Islam by the Obama Administration -- accommodations that were probably designed to show good will and discourage terrorism? We can see from this incident how spectacularly this endeavor has succeeded. Not that anyone in Washington would dare contemplate abandoning it, no matter what the failure rate may be.

    Oopsie! In what has to be one of the least-shocking outcomes of Barack Obama's Libyan adventure, the New York Times reports that his administration secretly gave approval of weapons shipments to Libyan resistance fighters, only to learn that the weapons ended up arming Islamist terror networks. Who could have seen that coming, right? The Obama administration secretly gave its blessing to arms shipments to Libyan rebels from Qatar last year, but American officials later grew alarmed as evidence grew that Qatar was turning some of the weapons over to Islamic militants, according to United States officials and foreign diplomats.No evidence...

That's what a congregant at the Islamic Outreach Center saw Tuesday evening when he and a handful of other worshippers arrived for nightly prayers. Worshippers also found blood stains near the door of the Harris County mosque. "It looked like someone was trying to take it inside, but it was locked," said Ilyas Choudry, who helps run the center.

    How bad is Obama's obsession with ceding the free world to the umma (the Muslim world community)? It's positively scary. Not only did he slash NASA's key programs and cut space exploration, but also he told them to redirect their efforts towards Muslim countries. But wait, it gets worse: now he is withholding approval of a planned NASA deep space station. Maybe he is unhappy with NASA -- maybe they haven't made enough Muslims feel good about themselves.

    The Royal Islamic Strategic Studies Centre has released this years list of the 500 worlds most influential Muslims and of the top 10, seven are Islamists. The unfortunate reality is that Islamism is indeed mainstream thought in the Muslim world and non-Muslims have a lot of ground to make up in the struggle over the direction of the Muslim world. The most influential Muslim is Saudi King Abdullah. He is hailed as a reformer but that is by Saudi standards. Under his rule, Sharia is still the law of the land in an especially puritanical form.

The perpetrator was a Muslim, Abdullatif Aldosary. You would think that a Muslim detonating an IED in a government building in Arizona would be front-page stuff, or that national security agencies would be at heightened alert, but you would be wrong. The FBI is not treating it as a terrorism case because of the political sensitivities involved. Translation? They fear insulting Muslims. Theyre not properly prosecuting...

Suddenly, we are covered in darkness as the shadow engulfs us. Only the image of our Earth hangs in the air, until a huge silhouetted object suddenly blocks our view."

According to Emily Selove of the University of Manchester, who did the translation, he wrote the book to remind readers "that every serious minded person needs to take a break."

    From the moment that tens of thousands of Egyptians took to the streets to protest President Mohamed Morsis power-grabbing constitutional declaration, western journalists largely assumed that Morsi would back down. From their vantage point, criticism of Morsis move from within his own government, threats of judicial strikes, and the sheer magnitude of popular anger could force Morsi, in the words of The New York Times, to engage in the kind of give and take that democratic government requires. So when Morsi met with judges on Monday evening and promised that his newly declared powers only applied to ill-defined acts of...

    The term Islamism was coined to differentiate Islam as modern ideology from Islam as a faith. It became necessary to make this distinction after the Iranian revolution of 1979, which gave rise to the popular use of the term: "Islamic fundamentalism." The use of fundamentalism to describe Islam spread so fast that by 1990, the Concise Oxford English Dictionary defined fundamentalism as "the strict maintenance of traditional Protestant beliefs" and "the strict maintenance of ancient or fundamental doctrines of any religion, especially Islam." Ironically the more the media embraced Islamic fundamentalism as a term, the more scholars of Islam looked...

Mr Zahed says the mosque, situated in a Buddhist chapel in Paris, will also break another Islamic taboo by refusing to segregate women and men. He...

    ISFAHAN, Iran, Nov. 29 (UPI) -- A Jewish woman was stabbed to death in Isfahan, Iran, in what her family said was a religiously motivated crime.

    And so it begins. If the jihadists succeed in Syria, millions of Christians, Alawites, and Druze will be mercilessly slaughtered.

    A federal judge has ruled that Christian evangelists who were arrested at a Dearborn, Mich., festival sponsored by the Arab Chamber of Commerce can sue the business organization. The court finds that plaintiffs do properly allege a civil conspiracy among defendants, including the AACC, to deprive plaintiffs of their constitutional rights sufficient to survive a motion to dismiss, the courts ruling said. It came in a case brought by the American Freedom Law Center on behalf of the Christians. David Yerushalmi, AFLC co-founder and senior counsel, said: The detailed allegations of our 100-page civil rights complaint sets out a pattern...

    Their words, not mine. Israels latest defensive action in Gaza has led to an ugly new outpouring of Jew-hatred across the globe. So many devout Muslims calling for jihad in the cause of Islam, so few moderates denouncing the devout. So many misunderstanders of Islam, so few moderates speaking out against the millions of misunderstanders. It is not surprising because Jew hatred is a religious mandate under Islam. During Operation Pillar of Defense, Hamas broadcast a video on its official Al-Aqsa TV station saying, Killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah. IPT News reported Monday that...

    Obama say, "respect it!" And how depraved is President Obama and in the tank for jihad? He refuses to designate Boko Haram a terror organization. Boko Haram means "books bad," or Western education is sinful.

    Hamas traces its roots back to the Muslim Brotherhood. Sheikh Hasan Ahmed Abdel Rahman Muhammed al-Banna launched the Muslim Brothers in March 1928. The motto of the Muslim Brotherhood, which al-Banna supplied, is: "Islam is the solution, the Koran is our Constitution, Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our Leader, Jihad is our way, dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope." Said Ramadan was born in 1926 in Shibin al-Kawm, a village in the Nile delta. He encountered al-Banna and joined the Muslim Brotherhood when he was 14. After graduating from Cairo University, he became al-Banna's...

"We need to have a safe space for people who do not feel comfortable and at ease in normal mosques," Zahed told ABC News. "There are transgender people who fear aggression, women who do not want to wear head scarf or sit in the back of the mosque. This project gives...
