    Following President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, a Texas-based Islamic cleric has posted a recorded prayer on his Facebook page calling for Israel’s destruction, along with “their allies, and those who assist them and those who allowed them into the abodes of the Muslims.” While Sheikh Ramadan Elsabagh does not mention Trump’s Wednesday proclamation ( the Investigative Project on Terrorism, which translated the message from Arabic, interprets it as a “clear reaction.” Read more at http://www.wnd.com/2017/12/texas-imam-calls-for-israels-destruction-in-arabic/#FO1MoC1lR5KKdtbW.99)[snip]“Oh Allah save [Al Aqsa] from the hands of the accursed violators, whom you have cursed in every book, and cursed them through...

    The Iraqi asylum seeker who raped a 10-year-old boy in a swimming centre in Vienna will have his sentence reduced from six to four years after a judge felt his punishment was too “draconian”. On the 2nd of December 2015, the 20-year-old Iraqi Amir A. brutally raped a 10-year-old boy at the Theresienbad in Vienna and shocked the country after claiming that he had a “sexual emergency”. The Iraqi was found guilty of rape and sentenced to six years, but may see freedom much sooner as a judge has now reduced his sentence to four years, meaning he may be...

    Spanish authorities have arrested a Muslim cleric — whom the New York Times once praised for his efforts to fight radicalization within Germany’s Islamic community — for alleged ties to the Islamic State. Hesham Shashaa (aka Abu Adam), a 46-year-old Egyptian-Palestinian, was detained near Alicante in southeastern Spain on April 26 on charges of aiding the Islamic State, extolling terrorism and promoting Salafi-jihadism. The Spanish Interior Ministry said that Shashaa had facilitated the travel to Spain of Islamic State jihadists from Syria and Iraq by providing them with money, refuge and fake documents. Most recently, Shashaa had made arrangements for...

    This is what Obama is doing to American towns and communities with his Muslim migrant policies. I’ve written a great deal about the five-year-old who was raped by three Muslim migrant boys in Twin Falls. Now here is yet another case of sex assault by a Muslim migrant in the same small city. A Muslim Twin Falls man arrested over the weekend and charged with sexually assaulting a mentally retarded woman was quoted by local media in June as representative of Muslims opposing “bad things” and bemoaning the fact that the “picture of Muslims is getting worse.” As reported by...

    The ex-wife of the 29-year-old man suspected of killing 50 people in a Orlando nightclub early Sunday said that he was violent and mentally unstable and beat her repeatedly while they were married. The ex-wife said she met Omar Mateen online about eight years ago and decided to move to Florida and marry him. At first, the marriage was normal, she said, but then he became abusive. [Snip] After the couple split, a friend of Mateen's said the young man became steadily more religious. The friend, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said Mateen several years ago went on...

Zakia Belkhiri was photographed taking the selfies as she flashed a peace sign in front of Vlaams Belang protesters at the third annual Muslim Expo in Antwerp.The protests were part of the increasing resistance in Belgium and elsewhere in Europe to the flood of Muslim refugees pouring in from war-torn and poverty stricken countries in the Middle East and Africa.

    A Michigan-based pro-Palestinian activist has posted a video online defending the "stabbing of Jews by Palestinians," and comparing Jews to animals. Lina Allan posted the three-minute Arabic rant under the title "Is Stabbing Jews Haram [Forbidden]?" The monologue was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI). Notably, throughout the video Allan uses the word "Jew", and only once makes any reference to Israel at all. ...

    The Turks are marching, yelling, protesting, throwing bombs, burning cars, and destroying businesses as officials try to restore order. Istanbul’s center is burning. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan reported that 89 police vehicles, 42 private cars, four buses and 94 businesses had been destroyed by the “vandalism” in two days. Protestors charge that the prime minister is moving the nation toward extreme Islam and many of the people don’t want to go there. The same is happening in America but no one is protesting! Do we want to go there? Erdogan is identified as a Muslim “moderate”; however, his own...

    Coiffed, groomed and impeccably suited, Mithal al-Alusi cuts an imposing figure at this trendy hotel. In the empty bar lounge, he makes himself at home to a breakfast of fresh fruit, strong coffee and a constant flow of cigarettes. The leader of the Democratic Party of the Iraqi Nation is in town to promote his vision for a new Iraq and accept an accolade from an unlikely sponsor – the American Jewish Committee – who honored him with a Moral Courage award at their annual dinner last week. His act of courage was an attempt to break Iraq's long-standing taboo...

    Hassan al-Banna, the Muslim Brotherhood’s epigrammatic founder, was never at a loss for the chilling turn of phrase. His rally cry, the Brotherhood’s signature pledge that “Jihad is our way” and “Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope,” is the soundtrack of the “Arab Spring.” It speaks for a region over two-thirds of whose putative liberty lovers prefer to kill apostates than to abide freedom of conscience. Their embrace of the very sharia chauvinism that ties together Banna, bin Laden, the Saudi royals, and Tamerlan Tsarnaev explodes the Western myth of the moderate Muslim majority. Yet the...

    the well-known Imam of Munich’s Darul Quran mosque is in jail for beating one of his wives severely, in fact so bad that she sustained several broken bones. A police spokesman confirmed a report from the Bavarian broadcast (BR) on Tuesday evening in Munich.... the Islamic clergyman, who preaches publicly again and again against domestic violence and against jihad, was considered a gladly seen guest with the integration/multiculti-interfaith- rounds organized by well known social engineers . One week before his arrest he held a speech at the Catholic University Municipality of Munich.

Police said he followed Hiller as she marched through the plant, using a radio to inform colleagues of Hiller's whereabouts and the best way to escape. "I just followed her until the boys in blue came up," Ciarlante said humbly. When the cops arrived, he gave them a step-by-step description of the plant, down to the number of phones inside offices where Hiller...

    BUFFALO, N.Y., Sept. 4 (UPI) -- Attorneys for a television executive charged with stabbing and beheading his wife can introduce evidence of "battered spouse syndrome," a New York judge ruled. Prosecutors in the case against Muzzammil Hassan said the decision by Erie County Judge Thomas P. Franczyk would force them to ask for a delay in the trial in the February 2009 killing of Aasiya Zubair Hassan, The Buffalo News reported Saturday. Muzzammil Hassan has been in custody since the body of his wife was found in the studio of Bridges TV, the Muslim-oriented cable station the couple had co-founded...

In the Muslim world there is nothing called moderate or radical Muslims or moderate or radical mosques. You are either a Muslim or not. ..

    Gruesome killing poses another test for US Muslims ERIC GORSKI, AP Religion Writer February 21, 2009 The crime was so brutal, shocking and rife with the worst possible stereotypes about their faith that some U.S. Muslims thought the initial reports were a hoax. The harsh reality of what happened in an affluent suburb of Buffalo, N.Y. — the beheading of 37-year-old Aasiya Hassan and arrest of her estranged husband in the killing — is another crucible for American Muslims. Here was a couple that appeared to be the picture of assimilation and tolerance, co-founders of a television network that aspired...
