    France herds Muslim faithful off streets after prayer ban World Sep. 17, 2011 - 07:15AM JST ( 13 ) PARIS — A ban on praying in French streets came into effect on Friday, with thousands of the nation’s Muslim faithful being moved to temporary alternative spaces for their day of prayer. From Paris to Marseille, Friday’s midday prayers will be led from disused barracks or other temporary buildings, after the question of Islam’s visibility became a political issue under right-wing President Nicolas Sarkozy. France, home to Europe’s largest Muslim population, this year banned the face-covering burqa and earlier this week...

    A Turkish woman set fire to a man in a mosque in southern Germany on Saturday. She says she acted out of revenge after the man raped her. The 36-year-old poured petrol over the 38-year-old man in a mosque in the city of Reutlingen, in Baden-Württemberg, before setting him alight. The woman was taken into custody on Sunday, on charges of attempted murder, according to the state prosecutors office and the police. ... On Saturday afternoon, according to the police, the woman’s husband and the later victim got into a fight in a room in the mosque. People attending the...

     What caught my eye first was a new Islamic school just up the road from where I live.  There is already a mosque and an Islamic Academy not far away called the Islamic Society of Delaware (more on that later) so it kind of surprised me to see another one because while Delaware has a more and more significant Muslim population, it’s not anywhere near as large as other ethnic groups.  I took another look and I realized something else, the new Islamic school (which I later found to be a lower school from Pre-K through 7th Grade) occupies...

    On the front page of today’s edition of [Danish newspaper] Ekstra-Bladet you can see the headline ‘Here, sharia law applies’, and a map of the areas of the country where the imams and so-called cultural societies have established an alternative judicial system based on sharia law. One of these areas is Gellerupparken, where I used to live and participate in what I thought was an effort to integrate immigrants into society. A feature article in the newspaper says that according to experts, these areas will, in the course of 10-15 years, be anti-democratic. I’ll stipulate that depending on what you...

    The same morning that radical Islamic terrorists destroyed the twin towers, the Islamic Leadership School in the Bronx opened its doors for the first time. "I don't remember much," said student Ameena Drammeh, 14, who was just 3 years old on Sept. 11, 2001. "I just remember everyone running around [the school]. I remember all the phones ringing." As New Yorkers mourn the 10th anniversary of 9/11, the only Islamic school in the Bronx will mark a decade of promoting goodwill between Muslims and non-Muslims. "Because we opened on 9/11, we know 100% that Allah wants us to be a...

    Last weekend Muslims furious over a head-scarf ban at Rye Playland got into a brawl with police. They were upset that burqa-clad women were banned from the rides. 15 people were arrested. It didn’t take long for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to call the move by the park another case of Islamophobia. The New York Post reported, via ROP: The finger-pointing is well under way over Tuesday’s melee at Rye Playland involving Muslim holiday parkgoers incensed that they were asked to remove religious headgear on some rides. Police were called out in force, and 15 people were arrested...

    Wife-battering imam of the Darul Quran Mosque in Munich, Sheikh Abu Adam, is the face of Germany’s Islamic "Justice.” Adam gave a lecture at the city’s Catholic University entitled "An Islam which distances itself from violence,” shortly before being arrested (12/10) for allegedly assaulting his spouse so violently that she suffered a broken nose and shoulder and numerous cuts and bruises. Media reports claimed the woman, who has borne one of his ten children, wanted to live a more "western” lifestyle, and was allegedly attacked by him after expressing this wish to her husband.

    MORE than a dozen American states are considering outlawing aspects of Shariah law. Some of these efforts would curtail Muslims from settling disputes over dietary laws and marriage through religious arbitration, while others would go even further in stigmatizing Islamic life: a bill recently passed by the Tennessee General Assembly equates Shariah with a set of rules that promote “the destruction of the national existence of the United States.” Supporters of these bills contend that such measures are needed to protect the country against homegrown terrorism and safeguard its Judeo-Christian values. The Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich has said that...

    WASHINGTON — A Muslim hotel valet at one of Washington’s most exclusive hotels has sued his employer, claiming he was barred from working on floors occupied last year by a visiting Israeli delegation. Mohamed Arafi of Kensington, Md., filed the suit in federal court in Washington Monday against the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group. Arafi says that his bosses prevented him from working on the 8th and 9th floors of the hotel back in December when those floors were occupied by an Israeli delegation. The lawsuit alleges that hotel supervisors unlawfully discriminated against Arafi by agreeing to an Israeli request that...

These words have no basis in fact. Islam is not part of our civilization because its foundational principles are opposite to ours. Our civilization is built on the foundation of critical thought (how we think) and the Golden Rule (ethics).

    We have a new kind of bigot today, the virtuous bigot. You can find a virtuous bigot by reading the writings of just about any apologist for Islam. It seems that it almost impossible for an apologist to resist proving the point of the beauty of Islam, by saying that those who find fault in Islam are bigots, racists, haters, and Islamophobes. All of those who use fact-based arguments against Islam or reveal the enormous suffering caused by Islam are attacked by being called members of the KKK and worse. Any criticism of Islam is treated as hate speech. bigot_-_behead-those-who-insult-islam2...

    The US has said it will send aid to famine-hit areas of Somalia controlled by the Islamist group al-Shabab. But US aid officials say assurances must be given that the insurgents will not interfere with its distribution. The US considers al-Shabab a terrorist group and last year stopped aid to the large area of Somalia it controls. The UN has declared a famine in two areas of southern Somalia as the region experiences the worst drought in more than half a century. Al-Shabab, an al-Qaeda-affiliated group which controls large swathes of south and central Somalia, had imposed a ban on...

    Two years ago today, Qasim Ahmed became "possibly the first" imam to open a session of the Florida House of Representatives with a prayer. Subsequent findings by Islamist Watch suggest that he made history in another sense — as the first polygamist to be so honored. Critical information comes from the website of the Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA), an African-American Muslim organization whose Islamist-heavy leadership is topped by radical cleric Siraj Wahhaj. Ahmed is listed as a member of MANA's executive committee; his important role in the group lends credence to descriptions of him carried on its site.

Former Reagan administration defense official Frank Gaffney is still waiting for somebody to rebut his allegations that the Muslim Brotherhood, which seeks to impose shariah law around the world, is running an influence operation in Washington, D.C. Instead, he's being called an anti-Muslim bigot. After WND reported yesterday that Gaffney accused Muslim Republican Suhail Khan of "infiltrating" the Conservative Political Action Conference on behalf of radical Islamists, Khan and CPAC director Lisa DePasquale fired back with personal attacks on Gaffney in Salon and Politico.

    Muslims, by belief and practice, are the most blatant violators of human rights.  We hardly need to detail here Muslims' systemic cruel treatment of the unbelievers, women of all persuasions, and any and all minorities across the board.  To Muslims, human rights have a different meaning, and its protective provisions are reserved strictly for Muslims -- primarily for Muslim men.  Just a couple of examples should suffice for now. Oppression of women, for one, is so systemic in Islam that to this day, women are, at best, second-class citizens under Islamic law.  Saudi Arabia, the custodian of Islamdom, denies...

It seems Canada already has Couric’s dream show. Every Monday night at 8:30, Canadians can tune into CBC Television’s sitcom “Little Mosque on the Prairie.” The show is wildly popular — enough so that it’s currently on its fifth season. The audience watches as a new imam and his mosque try to assimilate into the predominately Anglican town of Mercy. Each episode is rife with...

The agency was established to help redevelop Lower Manhattan’s economy after the 9/11 attacks," the proposed center, Park51, reports on its website.

Nationally, 43 percent do not know Obama’s religion, according to a Pew Center poll released last month. About three-in-four voters who think Obama is a Muslim claim they learned his religion from the media, 10 percent...

    Is it Muslim or Moslem? When Baby Boomers were children it was Moslem. The American Heritage Dictionary (1992) noted, "Moslem is the form predominantly preferred in journalism and popular usage. Muslim is preferred by scholars and by English-speaking adherents of Islam." No more. Now, almost everybody uses Muslim. According to the Center for Nonproliferation Studies, "Moslem and Muslim are basically two different spellings for the same word." But the seemingly arbitrary choice of spellings is a sensitive subject for many followers of Islam. Whereas for most English speakers, the two words are synonymous in meaning, the Arabic roots of the...

A “stop the minarets” campaign has provoked ferment in the land of Heidi, where women are more likely than men to vote for the ban after warnings from prominent feminists that Islam threatens their rights. Forget about tranquil Alpine scenery and cowbells: one of the most startling features of the referendum campaign has been a poster showing a menacing woman...

    Senior staff at Sydney's Royal North Shore Hospital have ordered that crucifixes, Bibles and other Christian symbols be removed from the hospital chapel in order to avoid offending Muslims, Hindus and other non-Christian groups. The chapel building also contains a separate Muslim prayer room. Mosman Mayor Dom Lopez, a devout Catholic, said he was "outraged" to discover the rule when he was recently undergoing treatment at the hospital for bowel cancer. "When I was first told it I didn't believe it," Cr Lopez said. "When I was recovering, the Catholic priest came to see me and said, 'It is...

The poster's name is Bakkuto: Nachum (18 hours ago) He hates Jews because Islam teaches him to. The Quran, the suras and hadith are a veritable non-stop diatribe against Jews and how evil Islam considers them to be. He...
