    The UK’s National Union of Students (NUS) has rejected a motion condemning the radical Islamic State terrorist group—also known as ISIS or ISIL—on the grounds that it could be considered “Islamophobic,” sparking a row over the dominance of radical-left groups within the student body. The decision by NUS’s National Executive Committee to shoot down the motion is all the more shocking given that the same body adopted an aggressive bill just over two months ago condemning Israel and calling for a boycott of the Jewish state. The anti-Israel motion was adopted despite objections that it risked alienating Jewish students, who...
  • Raise Young to Respect Other Faiths, Pope Says in Message to Muslims

    Muslims and Christians must raise young people “to think and speak respectfully of other religions and their followers, and to avoid ridiculing or denigrating their convictions and practices”, Pope Francis has said. In a personal message to the world’s Muslims to mark the end of Ramadan, the Pope said: “Turning to mutual respect in inter-religious relations, especially between Christians and Muslims, we are called to respect the religion of the other, its teachings, its symbols, its values. Particular respect is due to religious leaders and to places of worship. How painful are attacks on one or other of these! “It...

    The Religion Of Conquest ^ | 4/7/13 | Damon Whitsell
    Post contains the following article from 2008, a cool and humorous picture and video to make a point about Christian Terrorism (AKA abortion clinic bombings)- that being that they hardly ever happen and it is ridiculous to claim Christianity poses anywhere near the threat level of Islam. Even what is termed Christian Dominionism is way overblown by Liberals to point at Christianity when talking about Islam (there is a link in the article to material refuting those claims). So if you have a freind that says something along the lines of Christians are more of a concern that Islam,, send...

    <p>So it's happened again: Egyptian Christians have been killed and the ether is ablaze with talk of "sectarian violence" and the absence of "law and order". And that's exactly what the ether is being set up to do.</p> <p>This latest outrage, leaving 25 people dead, is yet one more episode in the dirty drama we hoped our revolution would pull the final curtain on. It beggars belief that it continues, and that it elicits the same obsolete responses.</p>

    JEDDAH, 15 January 2008 — The history of science and civilization, as taught by many institutions in the West, often fails to include more than 1,000 years of Islamic heritage and civilization, according to Dr. Salim Al-Hassani of the UK-based Foundation for Science, Technology and Civilization. “The Renaissance couldn’t have happened out of nothing,” said Al-Hassani while speaking at Dar Al-Hekma College here yesterday. “In the West, there’s total ignorance of the contributions of other civilizations. Did modern civilization really rise from nothing?” Al-Hassani explained how many Western discoveries are of Muslim origin. There was a lost age of Muslim...

    MECCA, Saudi Arabia (Reuters) - A top Saudi cleric told Muslim pilgrims marking the climax of haj on Tuesday that the West was using the global phenomenon of terrorism to scare people away from Islam and discredit legitimate Muslim causes. Sheikh Abdulrahman al-Sudeis, the state-appointed preacher at the Grand Mosque in Mecca, also called for stability in Iraq and said Islam was innocent of the charge of "terrorism." "The campaign against Islam has become fierce and Muslims are being described in insulting terms to distort the image of Islam and scare people away from it," he told the 2.5 million...

    A recent documentary 'Colombia Unbecoming' highlight what has become a bastion of Anti-Semitism and terrorist sympathizing at Colombia University. The primary offenders include Professor Hamid Dabashi, professor of Iranian studies; chairman of the Middle East and Asian languages and cultures department; past head of a panel that administers Columbia's core curriculum. Some of his recent statements include; supporters of Israel are "warmongers" and "Gestapo apparatchiks." "What they call Israel is no mere military state. A subsumed militarism, a systemic mendacity with an ingrained violence constitutional to the very fusion of its fabric, has penetrated the deepest corners of what these...

    NEW YORK - The UN Third Commission on Human Rights on Monday approved, for the first time, a resolution on religious tolerance that incudes condemnation of anti-Semitism and concern about its spread. The article that references anti-Semitism notes that the commission recognizes "with deep concern" the growth in the number of incidents of lack of tolerance and violence directed at people who belong to religious communities in various parts of the world, including attacks motivated "by hatred of Muslims, anti-Semitism, and hatred of Christians." The resolution is adopted annually by consensus, and the original formulation focused on condemning all forms...
