    Prisoners under pressure to convert to Muslim 'gang' Prisoners are under pressure to convert to an Islamic “gang” at a high-security jail, with non-Muslims in fear of violence just for cooking bacon, according to an official report. By Martin Beckford, Home Affairs Editor 7:00AM BST 30 May 2012 Inmates at HMP Whitemoor told researchers commissioned by the Ministry of Justice that they changed their faith for protection or because they were bullied into it. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/law-and-order/9298578/Prisoners-under-pressure-to-convert-to-Muslim-gang.html

    Hizb ut-Tahrir is an international Islamic organization that openly calls for restoration of the caliphate -- that is, the political union of Muslims worldwide in a single Sharia state ruled by the caliph. This means that the group is dedicated to subverting and destroying all governments not ruled by Islamic law, and as such it is banned in many countries. But not in the U.S., which has never shown any awareness on an official level of non-violent efforts to impose Sharia. They're once again coming to the Chicago area to hold their Caliphate Conference: it will be held on June...

    Hilal Sandikci preaches Islam, because she is looking for answers. She cannot stand open questions. Since Secondary School in Herten near Recklinghausen, the 23-year-old has been occupied with the Koran, which offers plenty of room for interpretation, and the religion that is so complex. Meanwhile, it has become a profession. Hilal Sandikci was trained as a female Iman in a Turkish Cultural Centre. Since then, she teaches the Muslim faith to Turkish people. Because she wanted to preach Islam, but also in German, in parallel with her A-levels, she took the training for Imans. "I've learned a lot from the...

    In July 2011, three Iranian filmmakers announced a plan to create a film trilogy about the life of the Prophet Muhammad – the first feature films about the Prophet ever to be made in the Muslim world.[1] The announcement sparked controversy in Muslim countries, in light of fatwas that prohibit any depiction of Muhammad, his family, his Companions and other prominent figures from early Islam in works of art. The movies were supposed to be shot in Morocco, but were eventually shot in Iran after Morocco refused to be involved.[2] The filmmakers recently announced that the filming of the first...

    Nine Muslim men belonging to a child-rape gang in northwestern England have received hefty prison sentences for trafficking and raping young British girls. The three-month sexual grooming trial at a court in Liverpool, which ended on May 9, has drawn nationwide attention to the sexual abuse of children and women by Muslim immigrants, and British police are currently investigating at least 40 other cases of child rapes perpetrated by Muslims in northern England. While Muslim groups have sought to discredit the police investigations by accusing British authorities of "racism" and "Islamophobia," it recently emerged that British police had known for...

    Famous journalist/radio presenter Sergei Aslanyan has been assaulted late Monday night, Moscow police reported. According to police, an unknown man called Aslanyan at 11.30 pm and asked him to come out for a talk. As soon as the Aslanyan left his house the man attacked him, hitting the journalist on the head and stabbing him on the chest, neck and an arm, before disappearing. Aslanyan himself managed to call police and was later hospitalized at a major Moscow clinic where he was operated on. “The patient was brought last night to the operating room, now he is in intensive care,”...

    Attacks on journalists are, unfortunately, not terribly uncommon in Russia, so it's weird that a radio presenter recently embroiled in controversy would comply with an anonymous midnight text asking him to come outside, where he was stabbed 20 times. Our best guess as to why 46-year-old radio presenter Sergei Aslanyan apparently walked into an attack is that he's an automobile journalist, and probably not used to the kind of controversy in which he finds himself. The Guardian's Miriam Elder has the most detailed English-language account of the attack, which is still pretty slim: Police sources said Aslanyan received a call...

Commerce is asking for comment about whether there is social and economic discrimination against Arab Americans, along with examples of it occurring. The MBDA will decide whether or not to accept the petition by June 27.

While the "Born This Way Ball" concert scheduled for June 3 was sold out of its 52,000 tickets, whether it would actually happen had been uncertain for close to two weeks after local police refused to give the necessary permit for the concert. Police officials had originally said they were worried about potential violence and didn't approve of the pop star's message or outfits. The police, who have to provide security...

In the northern Malian town of Gao, court is in session. Commissioner Abdoulaye Maiga begins by reading from the Quran in the roadside courtyard outside the former police station. Once an area businessman, Maiga is a member of the militant Islamist sect Ansar Dine that residents...

The proposal is backed by China, Russia, Brazil, India and other UN members, and would give the UN’s International Telecommunication Union (ITU) more control over the governance of the Internet. Next week’s hearing is expected to bring more attention in the U.S. to the measure, which would give the UN more control over cybersecurity, data privacy, technical standards and the Web’s address system. It would also allow foreign government-owned Internet providers to charge extra for international traffic and allow for more...

As in previous years, speaker after speaker decried an imaginary racist, imperialist, Orientalist Western juggernaut, while disregarding the very real predations of Islamism. The first day of the conference brought in approximately eighty people at its peak, including a number of women in hijab (head scarf), typing furiously on laptops. Others sported keffiyehs and dreadlocks; a smattering of Arabic and French could be heard; and a scruffy,...

The theme for the annual convention of the Islamic Circle of North America is "Defending Religious Freedom, Understanding Shariah." It was chosen in response to bills introduced in more than 20 statehouses around the United States to ban the use of Shariah, the Islamic system of law, and other foreign legal codes.

Clearly, Iran is stalling for time to develop a nuclear weapon. One example: In talks last month in Istanbul, Tehran seems to have convinced international negotiators of the sincerity and weight of a fatwa, or religious edict, by the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei that a nuclear bomb is haram — forbidden — in Islam. Last week, for instance, former French Prime Minister Michel Rocard said the fatwa will help promote confidence...

    The recent British media reports on the Rochdale sex gang describing them as ‘Asian’ are both offensive and unfair.

    The violence in northern Nigeria is mistakenly viewed as a religious conflict rather than simply a tribal dispute over land, according to the Obama administration. Despite the ongoing Muslim destruction of churches and the slaughter of Christians – including many murdered during worship services – the U.S. Agency for International Development claims that the misunderstandings make it difficult to administer aid programs. USAID, therefore, has launched a program titled Project PEACE – an acronym for Programming Effectively Against Conflict and Extremism.

    As Barack Obama's candidacy comes under increasing scrutiny, his account of his religious upbringing deserves careful attention for what it tells us about the candidate's integrity. Obama asserted in http://firstread.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2007/12/22/4436605-obama-asked-about-connection-to-islam”>(December,) "I've always been a Christian," and he has adamantly denied ever having been a Muslim. "The only connection I've had to Islam is that my grandfather on my father's side came from that country [Kenya]. But I've never practiced Islam." In February, he claimed: "I have never been a Muslim. … other than my name and the fact that I lived in a populous Muslim country for 4 years when...

    Until recently, it was generally considered that Islam, the youngest of the great world religions, was born "not amidst the mystery which cradles the origin of other religions, but rather in the full light of history," as Ernest Renan, the French scholar of Middle East civilizations, put it in 1883. Most textbooks and popular biographies still take Renan's line: Islam originated among the tribal Arabs of the Hijaz (the coastal region of western Arabia that includes both Mecca and Medina) who heeded the divine messages of Muhammad. Fired by religious enthusiasm, they conquered much of the world of late antiquity,...
  • Why Invent Mohammed?

    Why invent a new religion? Robert Spencer’s excellent new book Did Mohammed Exist? collates recent historical research questioning the existence of the historical Mohammed, much of it previously not accessible to a lay American audience. This is a dangerous thing to do, and a courageous one. Some years ago I chided Spencer for giving the Koran too much credibility; more important than the nasty things one finds in the Koran, I argued, are two questions: “1) Mohammed may never have existed, and 2) If he existed, he may have had nothing to do with the Koran, which well might be...

    New French president wastes no time in bowing down to Islam – BANS PORK from Presidential Elysee Palace And you thought Sarkozy was an Islamopanderer. Not even in office for a week and Francois Hollande has banned all dishes containing pork products from all government offices, in deference to France’s demanding and perpetually offended Muslim population. How long before he unbans street prayers and burqas? Revolts in Europe (H/T Susan K) Effective immediately, the new French head of state never again will allow pork to pass his lips…or the lips of his staff, other government officials, or foreign guests. With...

    A father in Saudi Arabia auctions off his son as a suicide bomber at a hotel in Jeddah. The winning bid was 1.5 million Riyals ($400,000). It was a party atmosphere. Video link: http://youtu.be/DuGhi-WlBEU An unbelievable leaked video of an auction for a suicide bomber against Syria. This takes place in a hotel conference room in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The atmosphere is festive, and the audience has children in it. But the merchandise auctioned off is human flesh and blood!

    The courage of Western convictions Dr. Wafa Sultan, a remarkably courageous and thoughtful Muslim freethinker, recently debated Sheikh Omar Bakri Muhammad. Dr. Sultan watched passively while the good Sheik expressed without equivocation his pious views—in full accord with classical, mainstream Islamic doctrine on jihad—and then politely added her own plain spoken commentary in response. This less than 8-minute video segment, if viewed objectively and dispassionately, could do more to educate the American public on the theory animating the practice of “Islamic international relations,” without any further explanation required. In brief, the video exchange confirms State Department consul Edward A Van...

    The educational elite still remains unmoved by the prospect of radical Islamic Shariah law even as manifestations of it pop up in the United States. For example, recently, Middle East experts from the Brookings Institution and the Carnegie Endowment, along with two graduate students, agreed that in dealing with Islamic states, the U. S. should ignore Shariah but hold the nations to universal standards such as respect for women. “United States policy should not pass judgment on Shariah,” Eric Trager, a doctoral candidate from the University of Pennsylvania, said at the May 7, 2012 conference at the Reserve Officer’s Association....
