    WE ALL have a favourite album. Mine is Talking Timbuktu, the collaboration between the great Malian musician Ali Farka TourÎą and Ry Cooder. Arguably itÂ’s some of the best guitar playing youÂ’ll ever hear. Ali died in 2006 but his son Vieux carries the sound onward, that curious mix of African soul and heart with a blues base. So it was with utter horror that I heard Lucy Duran, who hosts the BBC programme World Routes and teaches the anthropology of world music at SOAS, say in an emotional comment this week that one of the terrible side effects of...

    President Obama has an anti-colonial, pro-Islam policy. He maintains deafening silence about Islamic imperialism (manifested as jihad and sharia doctrines of Islam, which have always caused and continue to cause havoc across the world), but apologizes at every opportunity for Western colonialism. Whereas the Nazis killed six million Jews, Islamic Jihad has killed 120 million Africans, 60 million Christians, 80 million Hindus and 10 million Buddhists, according to the Center for the Study of Political Islam. Whereas Colonialism brought science and technology to many parts of the world, Islamic Imperialism brought no benefits to those it oppressed. President Obama maintains...

    “The terrorists told us at the very start that they would not hurt Muslims but were only interested in the Christians and infidels,” Abdelkader, 53, said by telephone from his home in the nearby town of In Amenas. “We will kill them, they said.” --- -------- This isn’t really a hostage situation. The goal is to murder non-Muslims while embarrassing the United States, France and the Algerian government.

    A girl of 11 was sold to a child trafficker who branded her with his initial, a court heard yesterday. Mohammed Karrar, 38, also loaned her to abusers around the country for Ł600 an hour, it was alleged. Over five years she was repeatedly raped by large groups of men in what she described as ‘torture sex’, the jury was told. Seven men of Pakistani origin and two from North Africa are accused of 79 offences against six vulnerable white British girls. The charges include child rape, sexual trafficking and child prostitution. Noel Lucas QC, prosecuting, said Karrar – known...

    Following are excerpts from an interview with Egyptian cleric Hisham Al-‘Ashri, which aired on Al-Tahrir TV on January 10, 2013. Al-‘Ashri, who recently returned to Egypt from the U.S., has established a committee for the promotion of virtue and prevention of vice. Interviewer: Does the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11 constitute Jihad? Hisham Al-‘Ashri: Well, it depends who did it. Jihad is only for Muslims. They even say “Jihad” in English because they have no equivalent. [...] I call on everybody to type in Google “911”, and then click. You will get an incredible amount of...

    BBC ^ | 3 Oct 2008 | BBC
    A Muslim cleric in Saudi Arabia has called on women to wear a full veil, or niqab, that reveals only one eye. Sheikh Muhammad al-Habadan said showing both eyes encouraged women to use eye make-up to look seductive. The question of how much of her face a woman should cover is a controversial topic in many Muslim societies. The niqab is more common in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf, but women in much of the Muslim Middle East wear a headscarf which covers only their hair. Sheikh Habadan, an ultra-conservative cleric who is said to have wide influence among religious...

    As Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi said that virulent anti-Semitic comments which he reportedly said prior to his election were taken out of context, the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) released another video which depicts him making similar comments. The latest video is an address delivered by Morsi, which was posted on the Internet on January 10, 2010. It was translated by MEMRI and published on Wednesday. In the newly exposed remarks, Morsi calls U.S. President Barack Obama “insincere” and calls for Arabs to raise their children on hatred of Jews.

    CAIR Chicago is trying to stop our counter campaign to theitr bizarre jihad propaganda. Silence freedom of speech. Sharia enforcement. I received a "cease and desist" letter from Hamas-CAIR's Ahmed Rehab (Mr. Jihad), claiming ownership of "my jihad." Tell that to the millions of Muslims waging jihad in the cause of Islam. Litigation jihad -- that's Ahmed's jihad, what's yours? The imperialistic and supremacist group is claiming ownership of holy war and what amounts to a hashtag (#myjihad). Is that a first? They love using American law to crush American freedoms. In this case of parody (as in most things),...

    Islamist militants from Mali have attacked and taken control of a natural gas field partly owned by BP in southern Algeria, killing two and reportedly taking 41 people hostage, including seven Americans. A group called the Katibat Moulathamine, or the Masked Brigade, called a Mauritanian news outlet to say one of its subsidiaries had carried out the operation on the Ain Amenas gas field, taking 41 hostages from nine or 10 different nationalities.

    Nobody would like to know the answer to that more than the French. But they must keep the Afghanistan example in mind Those days are over,” said France’s President Francois Hollande last month, when asked if French forces would intervene in the war between Islamist insurgents who have seized the northern half of Mali and the Government in Bamako. But the days in question weren't over for very long. Last Friday France sent a squadron of fighter-bombers to the West African country to stop the Islamist fighters from taking over the capital. “We are making air raids the whole time”,...

    …Absolutely and unequivocally, Yes! With the rise in Islamic immigration and a greater proportionate rise in Islamic conducted crime, we are left searching for methods to counter their imported cultural violence. Most of us are familiar with the islamic jihad that has washed up on our shores and the calls for sharia law echoing from the chambers of their ever-increasing number of mosques. Radical Islamists seek out our western nations for a combination of reasons. One of the primary reasons being to take advantage of our numerous social-welfare programs that far outweigh the standard of life they left behind. Another...

    Islamic extremists destroyed another two mausoleums in the northern Malian city of Timbuktu on Tuesday, attacking a graveyard attached to the city's most picturesque mosque, according to a historian specializing in the area's heritage. Salem Ould Elhadj, a researcher at the Ahmed Baba Institute in Timbuktu, said the members of the radical sect set out with picks and shovels to raze the tombs of two of Timbuktu's scholars, Baba Babadje and Mahamane Foulane, both of whom are considered saints. Their mausoleums are in a cemetery attached to the nearly 700-year-old Djingareyber mosque, built in 1325. It's made of mud and...

    Can doctrinal Islam not always seek to "Conquer the world"?? Here is a story on captured Jihadists in Syria being interviewed.  ( I saw this from Dr. White's tweet and link to it, "Hard times ahead for our brothers and sisters in Syria".)  You should read the article and watch the video.  The beginning of the video was confusing to me without context, but the article makes it more organized. Not all Muslims believe this application of Islam, but this does seem to be the expression of real doctrinal and consistent Islam from Muhammad and the early centuries of...

    I keep hearing same-sex marriage (SSM) activists assuring us that no one else will legally redefine the essence of marriage, after they enjoy the privilege of doing so. It's a red herring to distract us from the real issue: redefining it for them alone. But if we redefine marriage for one group, there's no logical reason to deny other nonconformist advocates their right to do so, especially if they successfully argue their version of marriage on utilitarian grounds -- it benefits or does no harm to society. I don't know who invented the slippery slope fallacy, but he or she...
