    URUMQI, China — Mobs of Han Chinese wielding meat cleavers and clubs and groups of Muslim Uighur men beat people in the streets of the capital of China's Xinjiang region Tuesday. The government imposed a curfew as it tried to stem communal violence after a riot that killed at least 156 people. Members of the Muslim Uighur ethnic group attacked people near the Urumqi's railway station, and women in headscarves protested the arrests of husbands and sons in another part of the city. Meanwhile, for much of the afternoon, a mob of 1,000 mostly young Han Chinese holding clubs and...

    IT WAS front-page news this week when Newsweek retracted a report claiming that a US interrogator in Guantanamo had flushed a copy of the Koran down a toilet. Everywhere it was noted that Newsweek's story had sparked widespread Muslim rioting, in which at least 17 people were killed. But there was no mention of deadly protests triggered in recent years by comparable acts of desecration against other religions. No one recalled, for example, that American Catholics lashed out in violent rampages in 1989, after photographer Andres Serrano's ''Piss Christ" -- a photograph of a crucifix submerged in urine -- was...

But the Vatican seems to be becoming quite aware of these realities: "Too many Islamic countries treat their Christian minorities as second-class citizens and bar them from building churches while Western states let their Muslims build mosques freely, according to a senior Vatican official." This from Reuters, with thanks to Nancy Block.

That the Saudis, of all people, should now be regarded as a virtual ally in this conflict only underscores the need at last to settle matters between us. Although the catalog of disagreements on our agenda is long, and many of the items are by now familiar, it is helpful to review the list. BY ANY modern standard of civilization, the kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a bizarre place. In an age of spreading...

    TORONTO (Reuters) - Some Canadian Muslims will soon be able to use an Islamic tribunal to arbitrate civil disputes, bringing Muslim sharia law to a largely secular society and raising concerns about the extent to which it might be applied. Canada's Islamic Institute of Civil Justice was formed in October and plans to begin arbitrating family and business disputes early next year using Muslim personal law in Ontario. Eventually, operations will be expanded across Canada. Since arbitrators' rulings can be enforced by the courts, the development has raised eyebrows that sharia will in effect be endorsed by Canada's secular courts....

Is this more “Islamophobia” from the Right? Another venomous Orientalist caricature of Islam, begging for a rebuke from the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR)? Hardly. These are statements from the British radical Muslim group Al-Muhajiroun, which asserts that Muslims worldwide will also be praying on the 11th that the “reverberations” of the attacks...

    Even before the Sept. 11 attacks and the crackdown that followed, American Muslim leaders generally had come to believe they had made a mistake. In 2000, they made their first unified endorsement in a presidential race, backing George W. Bush. Many thought he would take a harder line against Israel, and, based on statements he made while campaigning, would protect the rights of immigrants facing deportation. Muslims say they were disappointed on both counts. Now, feeling the additional sting of being scrutinized in the domestic hunt for terrorists, they are mobilizing to express their anger at the polls in 2004....

    BALI, Indonesia (Reuters) - A key suspect in last year's Bali bombings told an Indonesian court on Thursday he was proud of the attack that killed whites and that it served them right. Reuters Photo Amrozi, a 40-year-old mechanic, also said he had been involved in several bombings across Indonesia including a blast outside the home of a Philippine diplomat in 2000 that killed two people. Amrozi is charged with plotting, organizing and carrying out crimes of terror and causing mass casualties in the October 12 Bali nightclub bombings that killed 202 people, most of them foreign tourists.

    JEDDAH, 10 May 2003 — The Shariah considers terrorism one of the most heinous crimes, says Dr. Abdullah Al-Turki, secretary-general of the Makkah-based Muslim World League. “Islam has nothing to do with terrorism and the two do not meet at any point,” he said. “We are saying this not to please anybody but out of our conviction that showing mercy and compassion to our fellow human beings is the hallmark of Islam,” he added. He said it was the duty of the Muslims to provide full support for the government in its fight against terror. Sheikh Saleh ibn Muhammad Al-Taleb,...

    For years, the U.S. Postal Service has subscribed to the philosophy that “neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.” But if snow, rain and heat don’t stop your mail from getting delivered, its supposed anti-Islamic (or overtly Christian or Jewish) content just might. According to “Operation Iraqi Freedom” mailing tips announced by the USPS on March 25, 2003, the following items are prohibited from being mailed to troops stationed in the Middle East: obscene articles (prints, paintings, cards, films, videotapes, etc.); any matter containing religious materials...
  • Church acts fast to counter Muslim web-site hackers

    A MUSLIM militant group is believed to have hacked into the Hereford Diocese web-site and left pictures of dead and wounded children. Four video stills, two showing fatally injured children, possibly taken from Middle East TV war coverage, appeared on the site on Monday afternoon. Anyone visiting the church web-site would have found themselves on the Muslim Allah Akbar page, which means `Allah is the greatest'. Diocese director of communications, Anni Holden, said she presumed a militant Muslim Arab organisation was behind the sabotage. "It was very dramatic. The page said Allah Akbar and there was also a line of...

    LOS ANGELES - Location, in politics as well as in real estate, is almost everything. When British Prime Minister Tony Blair came calling on United States President George W. Bush, America's foremost Iraq-war ally raised with Washington the tender issue of repairing badly-damaged relations with America's old Europe friends. That's not bad advice at all, of course. The friendship of Paris and Bonn is important, especially over the long run. But had it been the Malaysian prime minister or the Indonesian president visiting Camp David last week, our Texas Methodist president would have been exposed to a wholly different perspective....

    March 26, 2003 Officials Say Iraqis May Have Killed Some PrisonersBy ERIC SCHMITT and DAVID E. SANGER ASHINGTON, March 25 ? Some of the Army mechanics captured on Sunday after they took a wrong turn in the Iraqi town of Nasiriya were apparently executed by their captors, probably in front of townspeople in the area, American officials charged tonight. The officials cautioned tonight that this information was based on a single source, apparently a communications intercept, and that they were seeking corroborating evidence. It is unclear how many of the seven slain soldiers were executed, rather than slain in...

    Fort Campbell, Kentucky-AP -- The soldier taken into custody after a grenade attack at a 101st Airborne Division camp in Kuwait has been identified as Sergeant Asan Akbar. But Army spokesman George Heath says the attack that left one dead and 15 wounded hasn't been linked to Akbar's Islamic faith. And he says the attack won't lead to other Muslims being barred from serving in the U-S military. Heath says an Islamic chaplain is assigned to the 101st Airborne Division in Kuwait. And he says Akbar is being allowed to say his Muslim daily prayers while he's in custody. No...
