    Catholic Analysis ^ | 6 July 2014 | Matthew Olson
    In this episode, I answer the title’s question, perhaps one of the biggest on everyone’s minds today: Has Islam ever been peaceful? I herein go through some of the most important historical battles and events for Muslims, also mentioning the Qur’an when relevant. WATCH ON YOUTUBE (Alternative link, via Vimeo.) Summary: I start out the show by running through Islam's violent beginnings, then transition into its tyrannical rule in Jerusalem and Cordoba. Then, I talk about the key battles of Covadonga and Lepanto, at which Islam was curtailed. Next, I skim over the rise and fall of the Ottoman Empire....

    Dr Hamid Al Naimi says many recent discoveries made by modern science are mentioned in the Quran, which was revealed over 1,400 years ago. The universe is expanding, and will come to an end and die like all creatures. This was one of the many miraculous facts of our universe — mentioned in the Holy Quran — chronicled in the third lecture of the cultural programme of the Dubai International Holy Quran Award held on Tuesday night. The lecture, which was attended by Commander-in-Chief of the Dubai Police Major-General Khamis Mattar Al Mazeina, traced the journey of the universe as...

    Iraq crisis: the bare faced ISIS executioner who spreads terror with his open killing • Shakir Wahiyib is a feared enforcer for the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham who does not cover up his face in videos of his killings In an army full of masked, black-clad figures, he is the one man who is never shy to show his face.

    Crisis Magazine ^ | May 27, 2014 | William Kilpatrick
    “May Allah accept this from me.”“I’m doing it in the name of Allah.”“To establish Islamic law—Allah’s law on earth.”The above are statements made by would-be and successful jihadists to explain their motivations for planning or executing acts of terror in America. Jihadists in other parts of the world say much the same thing. Where, then, do they get the idea that this is what Allah wants them to do?Jihadists usually cite the Koran as the source of their motivation. For example, Terry Lee Loewen explained his planned jihad attack on Wichita’s Mid-Continent Airport last December as follows:I don’t understand...

To counter the coming stream of lies about the true nature of Islam consider these commandments to Islamists from the Qua’ran. 9:5 “Slay the idolators wherever you find them,...

    FrontPage Mag ^ | 04/04/2014 | Majid Rafizadeh
    The liberal mainstream media has long portrayed the picture of moderate (good) Muslims versus extremist Muslims. This narrative has been institutionalized in the thinking of Western Muslim scholars who advocate for Islam as well. This has led to the thought that Islam is an ideology and religion of peace, because a majority of Muslims fall in the category of moderate or good Muslims. If we analyze this dichotomy in-depth, the reality of this phenomenon on the ideology of Islam can become clear. Besides analytical and theoretical frameworks, I will also draw on my own experience growing up in the Muslim...

Although the attackers were from Somalia's Al-Qaeda-inspired Shebab rebels, the group's ability to infiltrate and operate in Kenya, as well as find a stream of willing recruits, has focused attention on radical Islamists based down...

    Kangaroo meat ‘halal,’ Turkey's Religious Affairs Directorate says Turkey's Religious Affairs Directorate (Diyanet) has issued a fatwa stating that kangaroo meat and grasshoppers are “halal” food, but Islam bans eating “badgers, martens, weasels, beavers and sea otters.” “Islamic scholars agree that ‘halal’ animals that are not mentioned in the Quran and in the hadith [the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad] are those that don’t eat feces and carcasses, and which are therefore neither wild nor coarse,” the Diyanet’s High Committee of Religious Affairs said in response to a citizen’s question. As such, the fatwa continues, kangaroo is classified in the...

    A 58-year-old airport worker was charged Friday with allegedly planning a suicide bombing at a passenger terminal at the Wichita Mid-Continent Airport in Kansas. The suspect, Terry Lee Loewen, an avionics technician who lives in Wichita, was arrested earlier in the day as he attempted to use his security pass to drive a vehicle that he thought contained explosives onto the tarmac at the airport, law enforcement officials said at a news conference in Wichita. In fact, the car contained only dummy explosives. U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said Loewen spent months developing a plan to drive a carload of explosives...

My friends were good men who believed in Western democratic values, in selective immigration policies based on the possession of needed skills that would contribute to both society and the economy, in the necessity for Muslim (and all) immigrants to assimilate into the...

    For seven minutes, five Dagestan rebels spoke into a video camera about killing infidels and how the “good deeds” they were doing would absolve them of “700 sins” committed during their lifetimes. Filmed by a Canadian jihadist fighter before he was killed by Russian security forces, the video offers a disturbing glimpse of the fanaticism of the rebels who may have inspired Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev. Tsarnaev does not appear in the footage, which was obtained by the National Post. But it was recorded and narrated by William Plotnikov, a Canadian whose alleged links to Tsarnaev are now under...

    Spare me the lectures. This isn’t about our attitudes toward Muslims, it’s about their attitudes toward us. Every time there is a Muslim attack against Americans, here or abroad, it unleashes another session of sensitivity training. It started Friday night when the president told us not to judge groups of people, and when the television anchors asked in wide-eyed bewilderment what the possible motive for last week’s terrorist attack could be. Well, if they don’t know, they’re the only ones. Some will pretend otherwise, but they will only be pretending. We don’t need another interfaith service with a prayer by...

    As earlier suggested, the wonderful thing about Salafis—those extra “radical” Muslims who seek to emulate as literally as possible prophet Muhammad’s teachings and habits—is that they are so unabashed and frank about what they believe. Such is the degree of brainwashing that they have undergone. Unlike the Muslim Brotherhood, which was founded much earlier, doublespeak is not second nature to the Salafis. The most recent example comes from Al Hafiz TV, an Egyptian Islamic station. During a roundtable discussion on the U.S. and foreign aid to Egypt, an Islamic cleric, clearly of the Salafi bent—he had their trademark mustache-less-beard—insisted that...

    Robert Spencer has started an illuminating new daily series at Jihad Watch: Hatred and Violence in the Qur'an Awareness Month. Running through the month of December, it was inspired by the Pat Condell video above, which utterly destroys the trumped-up and manipulative propaganda concept of "Islamophobia Awareness Month." Toward the end of the video, Condell says that a Hatred and Violence in the Qur'an Awareness Month would be much more appropriate, and Robert took him up on it. Spencer explains: "After all, November was Islamophobia Awareness Month, and certainly the hatred and violence in the Qur'an kills many, many more...

    Their words, not mine. Israel’s latest defensive action in Gaza has led to an ugly new outpouring of Jew-hatred across the globe. So many devout Muslims calling for jihad in the cause of Islam, so few “moderates” denouncing the devout. So many “misunderstanders” of Islam, so few “moderates” speaking out against the millions of “misunderstanders.” It is not surprising – because Jew hatred is a religious mandate under Islam. During Operation Pillar of Defense, Hamas broadcast a video on its official Al-Aqsa TV station saying, “Killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah.” IPT News reported Monday that...

    A mother murdered her young son and set his body on fire when he struggled to learn the Koran off by heart, a court has heard. Sara Ege used a stick to beat seven-year-old Yaseen “like a dog” if he couldn’t recite passages from the Islamic text. The beatings were so brutal that the boy died from his injuries, and his mother tried to burn the body to destroy the evidence, Cardiff Crown Court was told. …

    ....By going to the website of the Middle East Media Research Institute, anyone can peruse the almost daily splenetic vituperations against Jews and Christians that appear in the Muslim media. Does anyone anywhere in the Muslim world ever apologize for any of these statements? If not, why not? [snip] The lop-sidedness is the result of several things. First of all, Islam is a faith of supersession, which considers all prior revelations inferior and faulty. In the Qur’an, Jews are cursed forever. In Muslim eschatology, Christ returns at the end of time to break the cross. Second of all, and most...

    RALEIGH, N.C. -- The man who hit nine people with a sport utility vehicle on the University of North Carolina's Chapel Hill campus wrote a letter to a television reporter saying he read the Quran's 114 chapters 15 times and found that the Muslim holy book justified the attack. ''I did not act out of hatred for Americans, but out of love for Allah instead,'' Mohammed Taheri-azar, 22, wrote in a letter to Amber Rupinta dated March 10 posted on WTVD's Web site. Police say that just before lunchtime March 3, Taheri-azar drove a rented 2006 Jeep Cherokee through the...

    CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- The man who told authorities he drove a SUV into a crowd of students at UNC three weeks ago appeared in court. After the hearing, family members said they are shocked by their loved one's actions and words. Mohammed Taheri-azar, 22, appeared to laugh during a hearing earlier in the day as witnesses described the attack on the university's flagship campus. Taheri-Azar told investigators that he drove through the crowd at the Pit, a popular gathering spot on campus, because he wanted to kill people as payback for the killing of Muslims around the world. Laila...

    Once again the Demcorats prove that they are the party of the enemy, the traitor, the jihad. Despite public outcry, the jihadist Jumah will tale place at the DNC. The event has in its crosshairs the Patriot Act, the NYPD, the National Defense Authorization Act, and anti-Shariah sentiment. "I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction." Barack Hussein Obama, page 261, The Audacity of Hope A couple of weeks back, I posted about the Jumah jihad at the DNC, an event led by an imam who urged the overthrow of the "filthy" U.S. government...

    Six soldiers will be hit with administrative punishments for their participation in high-profile incidents early this year. Well marked Qurs were burned after jail guards discovered insurgents were writing messages to each other in the pages of Islam’s "holiest" book. President Barack Obama (groveling for all Americans), apologized for the burning of Qurs. The soldiers who incinerated Qurans at a detention center at Bagram Air Field in February won’t be criminally prosecuted, military officials announced Monday.

    (RNS) This year during Ramadan — the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar when Muslims believe the Quran was first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad —  I was in solidarity with my Muslim sisters and brothers throughout the world by reading the Quran. But here's the thing: I am a Roman Catholic. My copy of the Quran, with more than 1,700 pages, has sat on the top shelf of my bedroom bookcase among other sacred texts for 14 years. Typically I would use it as a sporadic reference and resource to better understanding Islam, reading a few short passages...
