    Virginia: Imam prays that Allah would “grant victory to his servants, the mujahideen, wherever they are” AUG 25, 2019 11:00 AM BY ROBERT SPENCER All the regimes against which the imam Shaker Elsayed rails are non-Sharia regimes. And when he asks Allah to grant victory to the mujahideen, he doesn’t have an interior spiritual struggle in mind, as is made clear when he says: “The door to freedom is stained red with the blood of all the hands that have knocked on it.” “Fairfax, VA Imam Shaker Elsayed: Arab Regimes Collaborate with Israel; We Must Remove Arab Governments by Any...

    'The desert city of Chinguetti, sinking ever-deeper under the sands of the Sahara, is the last place in the world you would expect to find a library. Yet this crumbling outpost in the west-African country of Mauritania is home to around 6,000 rare books and manuscripts, including some of the oldest Koranic texts in existence which date back to the 9th Century. It was once the prosperous and bustling trade centre of several 'trans-Sahara' trade routes. Traders from all over Europe, north-Africa and the Levant would stop in Chinguetti before moving on to sub-Saharan Africa. There, they would rub shoulders...

  • Higher Criticism of the Koran Resisted

    11/02/2009 5:50:14 PM PST · by Teófilo · 13 replies · 547+ views
    Folks, Sandro Magister, the world-renowned vaticanista, hosted in his website an exchange between Muslim theologian Aref Ali Nayed and the Catholic Islamologist Michel Cuypers which I think you should read. The subject of the exchange is one that I’ve covered repeatedly in these humble folios, having to do with the need for a higher criticism of the Koran in order to know, expose, and study its literary genres, its historical context, the oral traditions that converged in its formation, and the phases in its redaction that gave us the text as we read it today. Of course, such an...

  • Brass tacks discussion on Islam

    11/18/2015 8:12:10 PM PST · by Jim Robinson · 238 replies
    Ok, let's get down to brass tacks. How long has the Islam religion been around and have they always been so hateful and violent (like so many of them are today)? I believe they claim to be direct descendants of Abraham but I also believe that Abraham was a favorite of our one true Judeo-Christian God, and was the father or grandfather of the Jewish and Christian religions. I have a hard time believing that our loving Judeo-Christian God is also the Islam God, Allah, whose Muslim followers seem to be so misplaced. Haven't the warlike Muslim tribes fanned out...

    FrontPage Mag ^ | 07/23/2015 | Robert Spencer
    The BBC announced enthusiastically Wednesday that “what may be the world’s oldest fragments of the Koran have been found by the University of Birmingham.” This news is not only of interest to scholars and Muslim intellectuals; it appears to buttress the Islamic claim that the Qur’an’s text has remained unchanged for 1,400 years – which is purported to be proof of its divine origin. There is only one problem with all this: the BBC article raises more questions than it answers, and reveals more about the wishful thinking of the academic and media establishments than it does about the...

    What may be the world's oldest fragments of the Koran have been found by the University of Birmingham. Radiocarbon dating found the manuscript to be at least 1,370 years old, making it among the earliest in existence. The pages of the Muslim holy text had remained unrecognised in the university library for almost a century. The British Library's expert on such manuscripts, Dr Muhammad Isa Waley, said this "exciting discovery" would make Muslims "rejoice". The manuscript had been kept with a collection of other Middle Eastern books and documents, without being identified as one of the oldest fragments of the...

    According to reporting from The New York Times, some of the Marines killed in the Chattanooga shooting were killed trying to draw the gunman’s fire away from another, larger group of innocent bystanders. “Some of the Marines who were shot to death last week in Chattanooga, Tenn., effectively sacrificed themselves to save the lives of others, diverting the gunman away from a larger group of potential victims, according to a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation into the killings,” reports New York Times reporters Richard Pérez-Peńa and Matt Apuzzo. “This could have been a lot worse,” they quote the...

    Thursday, on MSNBC’s “Hardball With Chris Matthews,” Vox’s chief political correspondent Jonathan Allen said Republican presidential candidate Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA) was “making a play for religious bigotry” by calling the Tennessee shooting at two military facilities by Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez that resulted in his death and the death of four Marines a consequence of “radical Islam.”

    As the Muslim holy month of Ramadan ends Friday, a spate of recent terrorist attacks by Islamist extremists — including massacres in Tunisia and Kuwait — has marred a time intended for contemplation and prayer. But for Muslim American immigrants in the Washington area, this Ramadan has offered an opportunity to send a contrasting message about Islam and to engage in unprecedented public outreach. Dozens of interfaith events have been held in mosques, embassies and government offices. Muslim charity drives have raised funds for damaged African American and Pakistani churches. Families have opened their homes to neighbors and colleagues to...

    Public schools continue to be a battleground in the culture war, as the education establishment – composed primarily of leftists bent on political correctness – gains more ground.  This strain treats Christianity and its holidays as a pariah, while embracing Muslim holidays. The Hillsboro, Oregon school board just held a vote on what to call the time off school around Christmas and New Years.  It had traditionally been called “Christmas Break.”  But new calendars, produced by school staff, changed it to “Winter Break.”  The school board voted 4-3 to call it “Christmas Break.”  From OregonLive.com: “[School board member] Janeen Sollman...

The plea followed a fire Sunday at the Islamic center where suspect Mohamed Osman Mohamud occasionally worshipped, prompting an FBI arson investigation and concern about the potential for more retaliation.
