    Chinese authorities are reportedly stepping up their campaign against Muslims in the north-western region of Xinjiang. According to sources in the region, officials have been warning neighbourhoods and mosques that ethnic minority Muslim families are being forced to hand in religious items including the Koran and prayer mats. They face severe punishment if they are discovered.

    Self-righteous Westerners who indulge in moral equivalences such as “discrimination against women isn’t unique to any one religion” would do well to educate themselves, or make their claims to the real victims of Islamic doctrine, which assigns an inferior status to women. It also sanctions female genital mutilation and the rape of infidel women, both of which phenomena we see with distressing frequency today. So now it emerges that “Sheikh Saad al-Hajari, the head of the government’s religious edict authority in the southern province of Assir,” recently addressed the “the evils of allowing women to drive.” It’s because they have...

    In the picture, he departs from this earth like an arrow. Although he has not chosen his fate, he appears to have, in his last instants of life, embraced it. If he were not falling, he might very well be flying. He appears relaxed, hurtling through the air. He appears comfortable in the grip of unimaginable motion. He does not appear intimidated by gravity's divine suction or by what awaits him. His arms are by his side, only slightly outriggered. His left leg is bent at the knee, almost casually. His white shirt, or jacket, or frock, is billowing free...
  • Islam's Bizarre Philosophical Problem (An amazing contradictory statement: the Koran is eternal)

    American Thinker ^ | 07/21/2017 | Michael Konrad
    When attacking an epistemological structure, it is a often a waste of time to attack the consequences of a belief system when one can cut it down at the root. Islam has such a bizarre problem. And Muslims avoid it, for fear it would cause the whole religion to collapse. Islam, like Judaism, is monadic. It only admits of a hard absolutely unitary deity. However, Islam makes an amazing contradictory statement: the Koran is eternal. This introduces a real problem.  Anything which is eternal is, by definition, deity. And that strikes at the very core of Islam's claim to...

    Jihad Watch ^ | Robert Spencer
    In this excellent piece, George Neumayr refers to the rupture of relations between the Vatican and al-Azhar that took place during the time of Pope Benedict. As I explained here, that rupture took place because Pope Benedict dared to speak out about the Muslim persecution of Christians. By contrast, Francis energetically defends Islam, and leaves the persecuted Christians twisting in the wind, so he is acceptable to al-Azhar. The worst part about this is the fact that because this man is Pope, all too many Catholics, including some in positions of high authority, treat him as if he were a...

    In working through some of the 7,000 Hillary Clinton emails released by the State Department yesterday, I came across one curious one sent from aide Huma Abedin to the then-Secretary of State regarding a Koran-burning in the U.S.Here is another intriguing email: https://twitter.com/bhweingarten/status/638734489531871234 It is noteworthy that this message on a sensitive subject — presumably about a meeting between then-Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI) and Sec. of State Clinton on weapons collections in Libya — would be left unredacted, while many other emails in the Clinton trove are redacted in toto. This may be because news reports around the September 10, 2011 email date indicate...

    Thursday, October 27, 2016 It's a Mad, Mad War Posted by Daniel Greenfield Russia and the West are fighting to decide whether Syria will be run by Sunni Islamists backed by Saudi Arabia or Shiite Islamists backed by Iran. This insane civil war has burned up countless lives, not to mention plenty of dollars, rubles, euros and pounds. The only certain winners of this war, once the dust has settled, will chant “Allahu Akbar” and call for the death of the infidels. Sadly this is nothing new. Russia got the PLO started before Bill Clinton decided to become its sugar...

A student recently discovered the books inside a bathroom at the university's Student Union building. After snapping some pictures to document the apparent anti-Muslim act, he immediately reported it to campus security, which got police involved.

    I was chatting with a guy in a waiting room the other day about religion.  He related that his cousin converted to the Russian Orthodox religion and eventually became a bishop.  He said that his cousin believed that Islam was an evil religion and remarked about how unchristian it was to allege such a thing.  I replied that most Christians today refuse to acknowledge the truth about their own religions, let alone Islam. Is Islam just a bad or corrupted religion, or is it really evil?  This is why I believe it to be evil: The fundamentals of the Islam...

    Frightened teachers at a Sydney primary school have revealed students are showing signs of extreme radicalisation at a young age, saying they have been traumatised by threats of beheading and other violent behaviour. Students as young as in Year 5 are making the threats and pressuring peers into reading the Koran at Punchbowl Public School in Sydney's southwest, the Daily Telegraph has reported. Documents given to the newspaper reportedly reveal that at least three staff members have taken stress leave, received counselling and been paid compensation after bullying from Islamic students.

    Islamic State militant Amar Hussein says he reads the Koran all day in his tiny jail cell to become a better person. He also says he raped more than 200 women from Iraqi minorities, and shows few regrets. Kurdish intelligence authorities gave Reuters rare access to Hussein and another Islamic State militant who were both captured during an assault on the city of Kirkuk in October that killed 99 civilians and members of the security forces. Sixty-three Islamic State militants died. Hussein said his emirs, or local Islamic State commanders, gave him and others a green light to rape as...

    Slavery and rape aren’t wrong when Muslims do it. "I don’t think it’s morally evil to own somebody." "A male owner of a female slave has the right to sexual access to her.” These views don’t come from an ISIS underground bunker, but out of the brilliantly lit halls of Georgetown University where rape and slavery are defended by an Islamic studies professor. ... defending actual slavery and rape is still okay at Georgetown. So long as it’s committed by Muslims under the license of the Koran. "I don’t think it’s morally evil to own somebody,” Jonathan Brown explained ......

Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic lunar calendar.In the course of his flattering remarks about the great contributions of Muslims to America, the President mentioned the presence at the banquet of two Muslim members of Congress: Andre Carson, Democrat from Indiana, and Keith Ellison, Democrat from Minnesota, the latter of whom took his oath on Thomas Jefferson’s copy of the Quran, which has...

    President Donald Trump attended an interfaith service at the Washington National Cathedral on January 21st. It was a beautiful service until an Imam read from the Quran, cursing Christians and Jews. Of course he recited this prayer in Arabic so the only people attending who were able to understand him were most likely Muslim.
