    Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper gave sobering assessment of North Korea's efforts to advance its nuclear and missile capabilities during an interview with CNN on Tuesday. "That train left station a long time ago," Clapper said of North Korea's willingness to halt its weapons program. "The North Koreans are not going to denuclearize." Clapper's comments stood in contrast to a fiery warning from the US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, who said on Tuesday that the US would not take talks between South Korea and North Korea seriously after South Korea proposed holding high-level talks between...

But an application by organisers was rejected amid warnings it would turn the city into 'the biggest centre of vice in Asia'.

    Taimoor Raza was sentenced to death by an anti-terrorism court in Pakistan for publishing blasphemous content on social media. Free speech is considered terrorism in Muslim countries. Islam is quite literally the opposite of freedom and individual liberty. Sharia law is the polar opposite of Western law; they cannot coexist. This is Islamic jurisprudence in Muslim countries under sharia law. Those in the West promoting, protecting and advancing Islam this is your future.

Just ask Rafiqi Islam, a loving husband, who told his wife that he had a present for her, blindfolded her to make it a surprise and then cut off her fingers. Then the rest of the Islam family mopped up the blood, while Mr. Islam threw her fingers into the trash, and after a few hours took her to the hospital where they warned her to tell the doctors that she had an accident. The proximate cause of this event was that Mrs. Islam...

  • US official says Russia undoubtedly meddled in US election

    The nation's top intelligence official said Thursday Russia undoubtedly interfered in America's 2016 presidential election but stopped short of the explosive description of "an act of war," telling lawmakers such a call isn't within the purview of the U.S. intelligence community. In a joint report that roiled the presidential campaign last fall, the Homeland Security Department and the intelligence community said the U.S. was confident of foreign meddling, including Russian government hacking of Democratic emails. In its assessment, the intelligence community has said Moscow interfered in the election to help Republican Donald Trump win.

    Caption - It describes the social media website as a "vicious network". LONDON: Many mosques in the UK propagate extremely strict rules of conduct for women, asking them to delete their Facebook accounts, not to leave their houses without their husbands' permission, and to avoid wearing trousers, a research report released on Friday said. The research conducted by 'The Times' showed rulings published by mosques and Islamic associations around Britain. Under a section titled 'Islamic articles', the Croydon Mosque and Islamic Centre in London published a document - 'Advice for the husband and wife'. Written by a mufti at the...

    A powerful Pakistani religious body that advises the government on the compatibility of laws with Islam on Thursday declared a new law that criminalizes violence against women to be "un-Islamic." The Women's Protection Act, passed by Pakistan's largest province of Punjab last week, gives unprecedented legal protection to women from domestic, psychological and sexual violence. It also calls for the creation of a toll-free abuse reporting hot line and the establishment of women's shelters. But since its passage in the Punjab assembly, many conservative clerics and religious leaders have denounced the new law as being in conflict with the Muslim...

    Cologne-style sex attacks by migrant gangs occurred in 12 of Germany's 16 states, or 75 per cent, on New Year's Eve, as revealed by German police. Although localised reports of attacks emerged almost immediately via social media, the full scale of the phenomenon is only now becoming clear – and it's having a devastating effect on German society. Some 1,049 men and women were victimised in Cologne on New Year's Eve, subject to a litany of crimes ranging from pickpocketing to gang rape at the hands of migrants and asylum seekers. ... a report by the German Judicial Police (BKA),...

    An utterly shocking video has emerged that was shot inside a German school, which shows "integrated" Muslim migrants making a stunning admission about the "disgusting" Germans that took them in, and it should serve as a warning of what's to come for America. The clip shows a woman speaking to a group of Muslim teens inside of a German high school. In it, she asks if they know what the word "integration" means, which starts a discussion about how they really feel about the German people, and it's not pretty. One of the girls says that "integration" means to "exclude...

    A bid to ban child marriage in Pakistan utterly failed, after the Council of Islamic Ideology declared the legislation “anti-Islamic” and “blasphemous.” The bill didn’t even move past the first stage in the legislative process, The Express Tribune reports. It was almost immediately pulled Thursday by Pakistan Muslim League party’s Marvi Menon following condemnation from CII, whose job it is to advise the legislature on whether bills are compliant with Sharia law. In this case, the bill clearly violated Islamic law as tradition holds marriage as acceptable when a girl hits puberty. After CII’s declaration, a parliamentary committee rejected the...

    Israeli customs inspectors recently found and confiscated 4,000 dolls dressed as Palestinians and holding rocks. These were for children and part of a Palestinian Authority (which runs the West Bank) media campaign which, for the last several years, has been urging children to grow up to fight Israel and, if they are “brave enough” become suicide bombers. The dolls were made in the UAE (United Arab Emirates). This sort of thing is nothing new. A decade ago a shipment of souvenir statutes of the burning twin towers got through to Gaza where they were sold to those seeking a reminder...

    Hundreds of people gathered to cheer as a woman was publicly caned in Indonesia for having affectionate contact with a man who was not her husband. University student Nur Elita was rushed to hospital after receiving five lashes in front of a jubilant crowd. The 20-year-old was forced to kneel as a masked man whipped her repeatedly outside the Baiturrahim Mosque in Aceh, Indonesia's only province to enact Sharia law. Her companion, 23-year-old Wahyudi Saputra was also caned. Under Sharia law, unmarried men and women are not allowed to get too close to each other due to the "khalwat" offence....

    Muslims are boycotting Prevent, the British government’s anti-radicalisation programme, with community leaders accounting for less than a tenth of extremism tip-offs. The vast majority of tip-offs are instead coming from public services, such as schools and hospitals, or the police. The Times reports that although the figures include extremism of different varieties, including far right, they show the hostility in Muslim communities towards the so-called Prevent programme, and raise concerns that police are being denied information that could prevent terror attacks. Earlier this month, the Waltham Forest Council of Mosques, which represents tens of thousands of worshippers in east London,...

    Some of the most prominent reformers have argued for years that the ideological and theological roots of Islamist extremism must be addressed, a topic administration officials carefully avoided during a three-day summit this week. Reformers also say the White House is hurting its own efforts by working with people who sympathize with the goals of violent extremist groups, if not their methods."We have to own the issue of extremist Islamic theology in order to defeat it and remove it from our world. We have to name it to tame it," Muslim journalists Asra Nomani and Hala Arafa wrote in an...

    Support for the terrorist organization Hamas has skyrocketed in Judea, Samaria and Gaza according to a new poll, after Hamas skyrocketed Israel with a massive missile barrage and terror war in Operation Protective Edge. A full 61% of Arab residents of Judea, Samaria and Gaza would pick Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh for unity government president if elections were held today, according to the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research poll reported Tuesday by Associated Press (AP). By contrast, Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas was found to have dropped sharply to a mere 32% in support.
