  • Kerry is Wrong, Selling Girls as Sex Slaves is Islam

    John Kerry was speaking about ISIS. And he’s wrong. As usual. 1. Mohammed practiced slavery 2. The Islamic campaigns were carried out for loot. Including the human kind. Many of Mohammed’s first Muslims were out for slaves. Including female slaves. 3. Mohammed enslaved and raped women These are all facts that are not seriously in dispute. ... Mohammed’s armies looted and killed the men and enslaved the women. It’s elementary Islamic history. The only thing Kerry got right is that there’s nothing in the Koran about shooting the men. Guns didn’t exist then. That’s why they chopped off their heads...

    Nihad Awad of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has claimed [2] that “research has shown that anti-Islam prejudice goes down when people interact with ordinary Muslims and have greater knowledge of Islam.” Accordingly, he says, “it might also be a good idea for Americans of other faiths to borrow a Quran from a Muslim friend, neighbor or co-worker. In that way, knowledge may be increased as bonds of friendship are formed.”Awad is right. Americans should read the Quran. If they did, they would find that it makes sense of a great many recent events that might otherwise remain...
  • VIDEO: Navy Seal Destroy Obama, Slam Koran On The Ground

    08/03/2014 1:00:20 AM PDT · by Impala64ssa · 14 replies
    Recently a video has gone viral of one man taking a stand against Sharia law and Islam. Many Americans believe this is long overdue, given the fact that the power of religion is used to control, oppress, and mistreat millions of people throughout the world. Unfortunately, in today’s society, it is a major risk to speak out against any religion. This forced silence is a major reason that people have been unwilling to challenge what many would agree is blatantly wrong. Now, one Navy Seal decided to speak out a political conference, claiming, “They are intent on killing the American...

    “May Allah accept this from me.”“I’m doing it in the name of Allah.”“To establish Islamic law—Allah’s law on earth.”The above are statements made by would-be and successful jihadists to explain their motivations for planning or executing acts of terror in America. Jihadists in other parts of the world say much the same thing. Where, then, do they get the idea that this is what Allah wants them to do?Jihadists usually cite the Koran as the source of their motivation. For example, Terry Lee Loewen explained his planned jihad attack on Wichita’s Mid-Continent Airport last December as follows:I don’t understand...

    (Fr.) Roger Landry hits the nail on the head in his letter to Harvard University’s president: It’s not enough for Harvard to put out a press release saying that Harvard doesn’t “endorse the views or activities of any independent student organization.” Harvard simply would never allow itself or its properties to be associated with events that mock the religious beliefs, desecrate the sacred texts, or insult the spiritual sensitivities of Jews or Muslims. Likewise it wouldn’t allow its reputation or institution to be affiliated in any way with the activities or views of an “independent student organization” that was reenacting...

    Few divides are as impossible to bridge as those of religion. You either believe or you don’t. When it comes to Islam, non-Muslims are expected to take its goodwill on faith. If you believe your eyes and ears, Islam and violence go together like peanut butter and jelly.

    The liberal mainstream media has long portrayed the picture of moderate (good) Muslims versus extremist Muslims. This narrative has been institutionalized in the thinking of Western Muslim scholars who advocate for Islam as well. This has led to the thought that Islam is an ideology and religion of peace, because a majority of Muslims fall in the category of moderate or good Muslims. If we analyze this dichotomy in-depth, the reality of this phenomenon on the ideology of Islam can become clear. Besides analytical and theoretical frameworks, I will also draw on my own experience growing up in the Muslim...

Tuesday's ruling by a court in Novorossiysk, a city in southern Russia, ordered the widely read text outlawed under a Russian anti-extremism law that rights activists say has been abused by local officials out of prejudice or to persecute groups frowned upon by the dominant Russian Orthodox Church.

    As earlier suggested, the wonderful thing about Salafis—those extra “radical” Muslims who seek to emulate as literally as possible prophet Muhammad’s teachings and habits—is that they are so unabashed and frank about what they believe. Such is the degree of brainwashing that they have undergone. Unlike the Muslim Brotherhood, which was founded much earlier, doublespeak is not second nature to the Salafis. The most recent example comes from Al Hafiz TV, an Egyptian Islamic station. During a roundtable discussion on the U.S. and foreign aid to Egypt, an Islamic cleric, clearly of the Salafi bent—he had their trademark mustache-less-beard—insisted that...

    We can no longer negate Islamic Jew-hatred. it is time to negate the conventional wisom of ....Bernard Lewis. He is an apologist. Dr. Andrew Bostom painstakingly makes the case: "Yet to this day, thousands of reports and opinion pieces later (search 'Morsi' + 'apes and pigs' using Google.com to estimate the vast output), only a handful have noted this irrefragable link to a Koranic verse (i.e., 5:60) declaring the Jews to be apes and pigs. The apotheosis of this negationist trend was captured in a January 27, 2013 Times of Israel interview of Charles Small, head of the itinerant Institute...

    CBS calls our ads "inflammatory"? That's half right. The ad is not inflammatory. But the quote is. It has inspired mass murder for centuries. But CBS didn't mean that. The CBS headline says that the ad is "inflammatory." Inflammatory? Because it violates the sharia (do not criticize Islam)? Because it might inflame devout Muslims to riot, kill and burn embassies as they did over a cartoon or youtube video? Our ads are accurate. September 11th was inflammatory. The calls for jihad in the quran are inflammatory. Ethnic cleansing in the cause of Islam is inflammatory. The jihad in Sudan is...

    A CRUEL mum who beat her son to death for failing to learn parts of the Koran by heart has been jailed for life and ordered to serve a minimum of 17 years.

But a murder trial heard she treated little Yaseen like a “dog” and repeatedly beat him with a stick for failing to memorise religious texts quickly enough. Ege collapsed as the sentence was delivered at...

    TAMPA — The emails were anguished, pleading and sent straight to the mayor. "Bob, hope all is well," Jill Kelley wrote at 5:57 a.m. Tuesday to Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn, whom she knows socially. What came next offers a glimpse into Kelley's state of mind as a national scandal blew up in her front yard. "My kids are scared, and need their 'home' back," she wrote, asking for help with "paparazzi" at her Bayshore Boulevard mansion. At 6:18 a.m. Wednesday, she emailed again. "Dear Mayor Bob," she wrote, saying that her name, along with those of former CIA director David...

    A mother murdered her young son and set his body on fire when he struggled to learn the Koran off by heart, a court has heard. Sara Ege used a stick to beat seven-year-old Yaseen “like a dog” if he couldn’t recite passages from the Islamic text. The beatings were so brutal that the boy died from his injuries, and his mother tried to burn the body to destroy the evidence, Cardiff Crown Court was told. …

    ....By going to the website of the Middle East Media Research Institute, anyone can peruse the almost daily splenetic vituperations against Jews and Christians that appear in the Muslim media. Does anyone anywhere in the Muslim world ever apologize for any of these statements? If not, why not? [snip] The lop-sidedness is the result of several things. First of all, Islam is a faith of supersession, which considers all prior revelations inferior and faulty. In the Qur’an, Jews are cursed forever. In Muslim eschatology, Christ returns at the end of time to break the cross. Second of all, and most...

    Six months after declaring that all churches in the Arabian peninsula should be destroyed, Saudi Arabia’s top cleric called at the weekend for a global ban on insults targeting all religious “prophets and messengers,” a category that, from a Muslim perspective, includes Jesus Christ. Saturday’s demand by Saudi grand mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Asheikh came on the same day that another of Sunni Islam’s most prominent figures, Egypt’s Al-Azhar University grand imam Ahmed el-Tayyeb, made a similar appeal. Both men were reacting to an amateur video satirizing Mohammed, whose emergence on the Internet has been blamed for protests targeting American...
