  • Army and Brotherhood—the last great battle?

    Jerusalem Post ^ | 04/15/2012 04:22 | Zvi Mazel
    With Khairat el Shater and Omar Suleiman vying for the presidency, the long simmering conflict between the Brotherhood and the SCAF has turned into open warfare. Ever since Hosni Mubarak’s ouster conventional wisdom had it that there was some form of understanding between the army and the Brothers. The generals, accepting the fact that the Brotherhood was the main political force that would rule Egypt in the coming years, were keen to make a deal. The army would keep its special status and its immunity under the new regime—and in return would support the Brotherhood and let them draw up...

    Mali's new interim president, who took over from coup leaders on Thursday, has threatened "total war" against the Tuareg and Islamist rebels who have seized half the country since the putsch three weeks ago. Mali's Interim President Dioncounda Traore Former parliament speaker Dioncounda Traore took the oath of office in the west African nation at a ceremony on Thursday attended by, among others, junta leader Captain Amadou Sanogo, who initially grabbed power in the March 22 coup. Mali's new interim leader - a 70-year-old mathematician turned politician who speaks six languages - is expected to soon name a prime minister,...

    In recent years, we've begun to brace ourselves for news of bombings, burnings, and other attacks on churches full of Christian worshipers on religious holy days — for example, in Nigeria, Egypt, Iraq, Pakistan, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Ethiopia. This violence comes out of the growing community of Salafi Muslims, adherents of the radical brand of Islam that is Saudi Arabia's official doctrine and which Saudi Arabia exports throughout the Sunni world. We've also come to expect the willful blindness of the Obama administration about the religious implications of these horrific events. Last weekend's Easter Sunday was no exception. On...

    Becoming "Pleased with a Legal System That Does Not Come from Allah" The Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America (AMJA) cautioned American Muslims in a 22-page Arabic-language paper in 2008 against working in law enforcement in countries which do not rule by Allah's dictates. One of their main concerns was that such work might cause Muslims to gain love and respect for secular laws: ...there are many evils which result from working in law enforcement, the greatest of which is compelling people to obey rulings which do not come from Allah. It could also cause reverence and love for these...

    (Video of entire presentation at link) Who’s really to blame for America’s catastrophic financial meltdown and devastating national recession? Contrary to what the “Occupy Movement” might tell you, it’s not greedy Wall Street executives. No, as one of America’s top financial professionals Kevin Freeman reveals in his new book, the real culprit is economic warfare, with our foreign enemies exploiting our lurking financial weaknesses. In Secret Weapon, Freeman unveils how all the evidence – including motive, means, and opportunity – points to America’s foreign enemies as deliberately pushing our economy over the brink. He argues that our financial system is...

    With desperation in their voice, someone asked me what they could do about Islam and I replied by telling them that we must study Islam, educate others about Islam and become Activist by joining Activist and Lobbying groups that stand for not only human rights, but the rights of the individual. I also told them about a real important webpage at WhatYouCanDoAboutIslam.com. That page suggest over 33 things that a non-Muslim can do about Islam. One of the things that are suggested is starting a personal campaign to educate the public using leaflets, flyers, brochures, and booklets. So in preparing...

    Here is an example of an irresponsible federal judge if there ever was one. Abdi Mahdi Hussein attempted to help Mohamud Abdi Yusuf send $21,000 to the Jihadist terrorist group Al Shabaab. Now he says (of course) that he had no idea where the money was supposed to go, and besides it didn’t get there. U.S. District Judge Henry Autrey bought that story and essentially let Hussein go free, with three years probation.

    Regular readers of TTB may recall that we were skeptical of the revolution in Libya and were concerned that some of the arms from Qaddafi’s stockpiles might end up in the hands of terrorists. The latest reports now have looted Libyan arms transferred from Al Qaeda elements among the Libyan “rebels” into the hands of Boko Haram Jihadist terrorists, who have been slaughtering Christians in Nigeria for a few years now.

    London Mayor Boris Johnson spoke the other day about the riots that devastated London and other English cities last summer: The biggest shock for me from the riots was the sheer sense of nihilism—perhaps I should not have been shocked, but in my view literacy and numeracy are the best places to start. In seven particular boroughs in London one in four children are leaving functionally illiterate. In a few schools it is nearer 50%. We have to intervene at an earlier stage, and I think the mayor can help. Here is a thing that The New York Times said...

    Pastor Terry Jones continues to fight for free speech against sharia in America, taking his battle back to one of the most Islamic enclaves in America -- Dearborn, Michigan. There. in Dearborn's latest sharia-complying outrage, the city actually asked Jones to sign a legal agreement to forfeit his legal rights regarding any harm that might befall him during his latest lawful protest. Jones filed suit, and a Detroit federal judge ruled last week in his favor. What is notable about the Detroit Free Press account (below) of what happened when Jones recently returned to Dearborn is the way the story...

    Hamas terror boss Fathi Hamad is a notable figure. Hamad is both the director of Hamas's al-Aksa television station and the terror group's "minister" of the interior and national security. His double portfolio is a clear expression of the much ignored fact that for terrorists, propaganda is inseparable from violence. Hamad's key posts make him a man worth listening to. His statements necessarily indicate Hamas's general direction. On March 23, Hamad was interviewed by Egypt's Al Hekma television station. The interview was translated by MEMRI. Hamad made two central points. First, he claimed that the Palestinian war against Israel is...

    PARIS (AP) — France's interior minister says some Islamist groups in France want to avenge the death of a Muslim radical, who the government says was responsible for the killing of seven people in a shooting spree in the country's south. Claude Gueant, speaking on French radio Europe 1 Friday, said that authorities have observed increased "desire" and "enthusiasm" among such groups to avenge the death of Mohamed Merah, a Frenchman of Algerian descent, killed in a standoff with police last month. President Nicolas Sarkozy, who is facing a tough re-election in a presidential vote, with a first round April...

    Here we have two important links that touch on themes that we have covered extensively over the years: Zakat, Jihad and Shariah-Compliant Finance. The first article from the excellent Gates of Vienna blog, points out that one of the destinations of zakat (tithing in Islam) is “those fighting in the way of allah…” http://gatesofvienna.blogspot.com/2012/04/on-zakat-and-jihad.html The second article ties zakat to Shariah-Compliant Finance. It is a column out of Malaysia, one of the global centers of Shariah finance, that points out–in detail–Shariah-Compliant companies are in fact liable for zakat payments. Shariah-compliant companies, either fully owned by Muslims, or jointly owned by...

  • Officials from Egypt's Brotherhood at White House (Huge Story)

    White House officials held talks with representatives of the Muslim Brotherhood in Washington this week, as the Islamist group threw itself into the fray in Egypt's presidential election. The meeting on Tuesday with low-level National Security Council staff was part of a series of US efforts to broaden engagement with new and emerging political parties following Egypt's revolution last year, a US official said. The White House pointed out that Republican Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain, and other US lawmakers and officials had also met with Brotherhood representatives in Egypt and elsewhere in recent months.

A liberal and one time contributor to the huge liberal website (The Daily Kos) he used to write Pro-Islam articles for the TDK and other liberal sites, that is until he went to the Middle East to do some research for a film. Then he changed his mind about Islam, wrote 3 articles critical of Islam at TDK and was let go and banned from the site. Just months later Eric is here debating an Islamic Scholar (albeit the...
