    Neal and Danette Childs knew they were in danger.From their compound in Niger’s capital city they could see three churches burning. The smoke was filling their home.“We immediately started packing a trunk, putting in our valuables, our documents, and we loaded up the car,” Neal told me. “There were concerns our family would be targeted.”“Our immediate response — there is that little bit of panic,” he said during a telephone conversation from the West African nation of Niger. “We were ready. We were on guard.”It was Jan. 16 and by the week’s end Muslims had set fire to at least...

    ON JAN. 9, the government of Saudi Arabia publicly whipped a liberal Muslim writer, Raif Badawi, flogging him 50 times outside a mosque in Jeddah. It was the first installment of the 1,000 lashes to which Badawi had been sentenced — in addition to 10 years in prison and a fine of more than $250,000 — for the crime of "insulting Islam" on his former website, the Saudi Free Liberals Forum.Two days later, following the Charlie Hebdo massacre, the Saudi ambassador to France joined in the great Paris solidarity march in defense of freedom of expression.Such hypocrisy was more than...

    ISIS jihadists publicly executed 13 teenage boys for watching a soccer match. The young fans were reportedly watching an Asian Cup match between Iraq and Jordan on TV last week when they were caught by the militants in the Iraqi city of Mosul, which ISIS, or the Islamic State, controls. The group of teens was executed in public by a firing squad that used machine guns, according to Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently, an activist group that exposes ISIS atrocities. Before the kids were killed, their crime was announced over a loudspeaker, reports said. The bodies remained lying in the...

The Qatar-based International Union of Muslim Scholars, headed by influential preacher Yusuf al-Qaradawi, appealed to Muslims to continue peaceful protests against images of the Prophet Mohammed but "not to resort to any violence".

  • King Abdullahs Death Fulfills End-Time Prophecies, Say Shiites

    Saudi Arabias King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz al Saud died on January 23 at the age of 90. Abdullah had been the de facto ruler of the nation since 1995 after King Fahd suffered a debilitating stroke; he was made king when Fahd died in August 2005. Some Shiite Muslims have long believed, based on Islamic prophecies, that Abdullahs death would set off a chain of events that would destabilize Saudi Arabia and culminate in the rise of Imam Mahdithe messianic figure of Islamic eschatology. Though Mahdi is not explicitly mentioned in the Koran, references to him appear in the hadith,...

When royal officials acknowledged Abdullah’s death, it was also revealed that Crown Prince Salman would succeed his brother. For the time being, the succession process seemed to have preserved stability in the Saudi Kingdom.

    The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), sometimes called ISIS or IS, is a Sunni extremist group that follows al-Qaidas anti-West ideology and sees a holy war against the West as a religious duty. With regard to nonbelievers, the Quran commands, And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. The Quran contains many other verses that call for Muslim violence against nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule.Contrast the words of the Quran with the statements of limp-wristed Western leaders such as this by President Barack Obama: We...

    A British doctor performed female genital mutilation on a young mother after she gave birth in hospital, a court has heard. Dhanuson Dharmasena, 32, is accused of carrying out the illegal procedure at the Whittington Hospital in north London. The junior registrar, of Ilford, Essex, denies the charge in what is the first prosecution of its kind in the UK. A second man, Hasan Mohamed, 41, denies encouraging and abetting the offence. Female genital mutilation, often abbreviated to FGM and also known as female circumcision, involves procedures that include the partial or total removal of the external female genital organs...

    The famed French weekly Charlie Hebdo has continued to draw a somewhat contradictory reaction across the Muslim world. Many Muslims have expressed disgust at the deadly assault on the magazines Paris office by Islamic extremists who killed 12 people. However, many also remain deeply offended by the magazines record of publishing cartoons lampooning the Prophet Muhammad. Those passions were further inflamed this week when the magazines first issue following the attack carried a cover cartoon depicting Muhammad holding a Je Suis Charlie sign. According to mainstream Islamic tradition, any physical depiction of the Prophet Muhammadeven a respectful oneis considered blasphemous....

    Obama's release of five more Yemeni terrorists from GITMO yesterday, one week after the terrorist attacks in Paris is beyond words. It wasn't outrageous enough that he didn't appear at the anti-terror march in Paris, he had to follow that up with what can only be described as a show of solidarity with Islamic terrorism since Yemen is where the two Kouachi brothers got their weapons training before their brutal attack on Charlie Hebdo magazine. To say the President of the United States is an Islamic extremist let alone Muslim is unfathomable. But how else can his 'no show' or...

    A religion which blesses and encourages the slaughterof those who offend it or its "prophet"should be condemned, not praised, unless and until it stops doing both.On January 14th, I posted an article titled Obama plans to restrain media offensiveness toIslam. As a thought experiment, this less than obviously relevant cartoon appeared at the top: I considered the cartoon offensive and hope that everyone else did too. It might depict Mohamed, or it might not. Beyond vague descriptions,likely of questionable value, we have little information aboutMohamed's physical appearance. The cartooncoulddepict any obese human malewearing a turban. The same is true of...

According to reports, the Saudi Kingdom is fed up with defending against ISIS raiding parties that routinely cross over the Iraqi border. In order to stave off these assaults, the Saudis are going to build a massive, 600-mile long border fence across the length of the countrys border with Iraq. But thats not all. The fence will be double layered with a concertina wire barrier in no mans...

    The headlines all over on Sunday's front page gave hope that France, which has practiced just about every form of appeasement over its checkered history, glorious and inglorious, was coming fully awake to the danger that now threatened it -- and all the West. France, too, had come to realize how futile appeasement can prove, whether in Neville Chamberlain's time or our own. To quote one front-page headline: "After days of terror, France declares war/ Extremism, Jihad the enemy, premier says." Good morning, sir. It's heartening to have you with us, and maybe even all of France -- for now,...

    Al Jazeera Americas inevitable collapse has begun with the elimination of all of its morning programming. Instead of producing its own programming, the basement-rated cable news network will simply re-broadcast Al Jazeera programs from its parent studio in Qatar. Also canceled is the late morning program, Consider This With Antonio Mora. Mediabistro reports that behind-the-scenes staffers will be reassigned and the fate of on-air talent is unclear. Variety, however, reports that primetime anchors Ali Velshi and Joie Chen will have less airtime and mid-to-late afternoon programming is also on the chopping block.

Firstly, lets address the word slander. By definition, slander is to make false and damaging statements about (someone).

As they stalked the office, the terrorists shouted “the Prophet has been avenged” and “Allah akbar!” These terrorists directly attacked free speech and the free press. Secretary of State John Kerry responded, “Freedom has a price… They may wield weapons, but we in France and in the United States share a commitment to those who wield something that is far more powerful.

Wars in Syria, Libya and Iraq, severe repression in Eritrea, and spiralling instability across much of the Arab world have all contributed to the displacement of around 16.7 million refugees worldwide. A further 33.3 million people are internally displaced within their own war-torn countries, forcing many of those originally from the Middle...

Iraq had 1 million Christians under Saddam Hussein, but now only a few thousand remain, and the churches of Baghdad will be mostly empty this Christmas. Where are these Christians? Where are these people? Just ask yourself, said the fiery nun, whose native tongue is Aramaic.

    In November 2014, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) took a bold and unprecedented step for a Muslim nation by designating 85 radical Islamic organizations as terrorist organizations. The UAEs designation is the most audacious and significant classification of terrorist organizations worldwide, and is superior to the lists developed by the United States, the European Union, the Russian Federation and the United Nations. As to why it is unrivalled, here are a number of reasons: First: The UAE addressed the roots of the problem, in the sense that terrorist ideology paves the way for terrorist acts; hence, the list included organizations...

    WASHINGTON - Biden, speaking at a forum on the Middle East at the Brookings Institution think tank, rejected calls for more sanctions against Tehran over its nuclear program because "this is not the time to risk a breakdown when we still have a chance for a breakthrough." Biden said the sanctions imposed by the United States and allies were working by slowing Iran's economy, as well as its nuclear program. "It's frozen the program, it's given us a shot for a peaceful solution," he said. "I tell you, I think it's a less than even shot but it's a shot,...

    The Islamic State beheaded another American this week. The Obama administration's response revealed its stubborn determination to deny reality.

He helped some of the one million Syrian refugees who have fled into Lebanon, using his own funds to buy supplies like diapers and other necessities and driving an ambulance into Syria. He was kidnapped in October of 2013. According to those who analyze such things, something went wrong with...

    A new law in Saudi Arabia banning tempting eyes has become the latest example of female oppression in the country. The law, which states that women with alluring eyes will be forced to wear a full veil, has been branded stupid by dissenters and roundly criticised on social media, aina.org reports. Sheikh Motlab al Nabet, spokesman of the Saudi Arabian Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice, said they had the right to force women to cover their face. The men of the committee will interfere to force women to cover their eyes, especially the tempting...

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Saturday that the Americas were discovered by Muslims in the 12th century, nearly three centuries before Genoese explorer Christopher Columbus claimed the discovery in the name of Spain.

Muslims discovered America in 1178, not Christopher Columbus," the president said in a televised speech during an Istanbul summit of Muslim leaders from Latin America. "Muslim sailors arrived in America from 1178. Columbus mentioned the existence of a mosque on a hill on the Cuban coast," Erdogan said. Erdogan said that Ankara was even...

    The Islamic State's Sinai Peninsula terror organization, which was named Ansar Bayt al-Makdas until it swore allegiance to Islamic State (aka ISIS), has blown up the pipeline carrying gas from Egypt to Jordan.

The Islamic State's Sinai Peninsula notified the press that it would not allow gas to be exported to Jordan unless ISIS...
