    What Drives Jihad?By Andrea JacobsInternational Jewish News | October 24, 2006 Dr. Tawfik Hamid holds a boxed lunch in one hand and offers me his book, The Roots of Jihad, with the other.

No photographs of Dr. Hamid are allowed. “For security reasons,” says the doctor, who looks younger than his 45 years.Dr. Hamid fled his native Egypt because he espouses a peaceful interpretation of Islam based on the Koran. Today he is one of the leading authorities on the...

    AP ^ | 10/5/6
    The Los Angeles County Commission on Human Relations gave an interfaith award to a prominent Southern California Muslim leader Thursday despite strong objections from Jewish organizations who criticized him for comments made about Israel. Dr. Maher Hathout received the John Allen Buggs Award for his contributions to relations between religions. Hathout, 70, is a retired cardiologist who is chairman the Islamic Center of Southern California. The commission called him "an inspired and tireless voice for greater interfaith understanding and alliances." The decision drew bitter criticism from some Jewish leaders, who pointed to comments the Egyptian-born Hathout made at a rally...

    AllAfrica ^ | Sep, 21, 2006
    Somalia is officially an Islamic state and conversion is prohibited. The country has a population of approximately 8.3 million, nearly all of them Sunni Muslims. There is a small, extremely low-profile Christian community. According to the International Religious Freedom Report 2006 issued by the US State Department last Friday, proselytizing for any religion except Islam is prohibited in Puntland and Somaliland and effectively blocked by informal social consensus elsewhere in the country. Somalia has had no government since the fall of Siad Barre in 1991. The Union of Islamic Courts (UIC), which grew out of individual courts' efforts to establish...

Now, contrary to the replies from Muslim fanatics, Byzantine was...

The new al-Qaeda field commander recently interviewed in Afghanistan, is calling for Muslims to leave the U.S. -- particularly Washington and New York -- in anticipation of a major terror attack to rival Sept. 11, says the Canada Free Press story. Like most peace loving free people of the western world, I'd like very much to believe that Islam is indeed a peaceful religion seeking a peaceful coexistence with all peaceful peoples of the world. It's just hard...

    Searching For Moderate MuslimsBy David Keene September 20, 2006 The Islamic world, along with the politically correct world, is in a snit because Pope Benedict had the bad judgment in an academic forum to quote a Byzantine emperor's criticism of Islam's justification of forced conversion during his time. Islamic spokesmen reacted quickly, asserting that theirs is a religion of peace, condemning the Pope and blaming him as their followers began a new round of torching Christian churches around the world and killing those who attend them. I am agnostic on the question of whether Islam is at its heart peaceful...

Sohail Raza, national security director of the Muslim Canadian Congress, is alive to the danger. As reported in The Free Press on Saturday, Raza warns that some of Canada's mosques are breeding grounds for homegrown terrorists. He said: "It's a tiny percentage of Muslims, but the message is...

    Both Bush and Blair obviously place much faith in moderate Muslims, but without any clear understanding of who these people really are. Without first establishing what makes a moderate Muslim, relying too much on easy answers is a recipe for certain disaster. Who is a moderate Muslim?

Since that time, the Israeli government has made it its mission to do what it takes to get Shalit back, whether by diplomacy or force. The United States government has said...

    - Most Muslims have "theories" about 9/11 Islamists' massacre. - 99.99% of Muslims that "denounce" [if at all] Islamic terror massacres on non Muslims, imply the word "but". - Most Arabs are so racist, most Muslims are so intolerant, they just can't bring themselves to be grateful to the US for rescuing Iraqi Arab men, women & children from the butcher & torturer of Baghdad: Saddam Hussein. - There was not one shred of gratitude from any known Muslim leader or group for US & Europe's rescuing of Bosnian Muslims in the 1990's. But on the contrary! - There was...

    THEIR eyes are full of hate and their banners call for a new 7/7 terror attack. This is the way a baying Muslim mob reacted to the row over the Prophet Muhammad cartoons on the streets of London yesterday. More than 400 protesters — including small children — carried placards scrawled with messages of hate. A baby girl even had “I Love al-Qaeda” on her bonnet.

    AUSTRALIA'S Muslims are concerned pressure on terrorists has been extended to those who merely opposed the country's involvement in the Iraq war, an Islamic political party said today. Wassim Doureihi, a spokesman for the Islamic political party Hizb Ut Tahrir, said yesterday's arrests of 17 people in Melbourne and Sydney were just part of the wider picture for Australian Muslims. "The viewpoint from the Muslim community is that the pressure on the Muslims is not necessarily restricted to those that may otherwise be engaged in terrorist activities," Mr Doureihi told Channel 9. "We see the pressure on Muslims ... they...
