    Pressure is mounting against the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) for its controversial partnership with the San Diego Unified School District in developing an anti-Islamophobia bullying initiative that was enacted last April. Investigative subpoenas were issued Wednesday afternoon to CAIR’s chapter in California that seek all communications and documents concerning its involvement in creating the allegedly unconstitutional initiative. CAIR-California will need to produce the documents within 10 days, or it risks facing legal penalties for being held in contempt of court, according to the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund (FCDF), a religious liberty group that issued the subpoenas.

    Aceh province in Indonesia is considering the introduction of beheading as a punishment for murder. The conservative Muslim province is known for publicly caning gays, adulterers and gamblers and applying Islamic Shariah law. The local government has asked the Acehnese Shariah Law and Human Rights Office to research beheading as a method of execution to punish certain crimes.

    Indonesia publicly caned two Christians in a rare case of non-Muslims punished under sharia law. The two Indonesian Christians – Dahlan Silitonga, 61, and Tjia Nyuk Hwa, 45 – were whipped six and seven times respectively by a masked man wearing a robe, as a crowd of 300 ridiculed and took pictures of them outside a mosque in the provincial capital, Banda Aceh. The strict Islamic law punishment against the Christian man and woman comes as the predominently Muslim country shifts to a more radical, politicized version of Islam, Reuters reported. The pair – among five people punished – was...

    * Justin Welby said Sharia law should never become part of the UK legal system* His predecessor Lord Williams had said Sharia law could be incorporated* Welby said British law had 'values and assumptions' rooted in Christian traditionsSharia law should never become part of the British legal system, the Archbishop of Canterbury said yesterday. Justin Welby said the Islamic rules are incompatible with Britain’s laws, which have developed over 500 years on the principles of a different culture. He added that high levels of immigration from Muslim countries can ‘have an impact on the accepted pattern for choosing a partner,...

    An analysis of surveys conducted among Muslim migrants in Europe shows that the majority of them value sharia law over national law and believe in the supremacy of Islam over other religions, according to Gatestone Institute. Citing a recent study done by Ednan Aslan, professor of Islamic Religious Education at the University of Vienna, the Institute reported that for more than 51 percent of the interviewees, the supremacy of Islam over other religions is undisputed, and 55 percent believe in hell for unbelievers. Aslan interviewed a sample of 288 of the roughly 4,000 predominantly Afghan asylum seekers in the Austrian...

    As Canada continues to support and implement Sharia Law, as well as slam its opponents by calling them "Islamophobes," a deeper look into what Sharia Law entails is in order. Recently, the Canadian government's Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage completed a draft of its Motion M-103 report, which recognizes "the need to...condemn Islamophobia" and "take action" against "religious discrimination including Islamophobia." According to the Ontario Human Rights Commission Islamophobia includes "acts of intolerance and racial profiling" as well as "viewing Muslims as a greater security threat on an institutional, systemic and societal level." However, it is not clear that Canada's...
  • Are Russia’s 20 million Muslims seething about Putin bombing Syria?

    Washington Post ^ | Egor Lazarev and Anna Biryukova
    Many observers have warned that Putin’s military campaign in Syria may backfire at home. Russia’s 144 million people include about 20 million Muslims; the overwhelming majority are Sunnis. Some analysts believe that these Russian Sunnis will recoil from Russia’s support for Assad’s Alawite-dominated regime and its attacks on Sunni rebels, and from Russia’s effort to lead a coalition of Shiite powers, Iran, Iraq and Syria. If pundits’ predictions were true, Muslims would be more likely to choose the anti-war response and less likely to support Putin’s intervention. But that’s not exactly what we found. ...There wasn’t a consensus among any...

    ...... “Before Christmas we received a letter from a lawyer who, in the name of his client, ordered to stop the bells of the church of the Blessed Sacrament,” said Fr Michele De Santis, the Chancellor of the Curia, ” so we advised the parish priest to stop them. ». Moreover, the bishop of Genoa is known to promote Islamization through the lucrative business of hospitality. But it is not the noise that disturbs the Muslims. The church bells in Via Luigi Carlo Farini, in fact, are just five (the bell ringers teach that they need at least 8 to...

The California Attorney General’s office argues that his comments constituted “repeated contact by means of an electronic communication device” with “intent to annoy or harass,” a misdemeanor under California law...

    UCLA recently hosted a "Muslim American Workshop" where attendees proposed a list of policy suggestions intended to help Muslim Americans. Suggestions included “ban anti-shariah [sic] laws," "eliminate 1st Amendment protections against hate speech," and "ban anti-Muslim President." A recent academic conference on Muslim Americans at UCLA featured calls for “banning anti-sharia laws” and “eliminating First Amendment protections against hate speech.” The University of California, Los Angeles’ Luskin School of Public Affairs hosted the Muslim American Workshop on December 15, where professors from around the country shared research papers and policy ideas. University of Washington-Bothell Professor Karam Dana led the Policy/Hybrid...

    Shariah Finance Watch ^ | 18 December 17 | Christopher Holton
    The issue of zakat is one that is central to the concerns about Shariah-compliant finance, but concerns about zakat should extend far beyond Shariah finance alone. Zakat is a real threat because it is doctrinal in Islam and no figure, organization or body in Islam has the authority to change it. But why is it a threat? Because it is a main funding source for jihad. We have detailed this extensively on SFW for years, but periodically we feel it necessary to reinforce and update our educational outreach on zakat. What prompted this latest report was an article we came...

    Sharia-supremacism is a mortal threat to the Constitution and the Republic it governs. For those of us who lived through the so-called "sexual revolution" of the last century – with its "free love" and "liberation" from the morality of a Judeo-Christian society – we seem increasingly to be in the midst of a counter-revolution. Thus far, its contours are still being shaped. But a growing number of prominent men from the political, journalism and entertainment communities are being identified and driven from their jobs for sexually harassing and/or abusing women in ways that might have been acceptable, if not actually...

    These three interrelated teachings of Islam — loyalty and enmity, jihad, and dhimmitude — are unequivocally grounded in Islamic law, or Sharia. They are not matters open to interpretation or debate. By eliminating or lessening the focus from all those other “problematic” teachings that affect Muslims only — but which tend to be conflated with those (three) teachings that directly affect the non-Muslim — one can better appreciate, and thus place the spotlight on, the true roots of conflict between Islam and the West.

Wolfe was also sentenced to 15 years of probation, to be served after his prison sentence, Brown said.

    It’s not just the “Islamic State.” Sex slave auctions are rife throughout across the Muslim world. Sex slavery is sanctioned under Islam. As I have explained numerous times, sex slavery and rape of the infidel is sanctioned and rewarded under Islam. Muslim clerics all over the world confirm the right to have sex slaves. It is in the Qur’an — the word of Allah. Politicians can keep turning a blind eye, law enforcement can keep ignore it, so this pox on our communities will continue to get worse. The history of sex slavery under Islam — look at this.But this...

    KEHRORE PAKKA, Pakistan — Kausar Parveen struggles through tears as she remembers the blood-soaked pants of her 9-year-old son, raped by a religious cleric. Each time she begins to speak, she stops, swallows hard, wipes her tears and begins again. The boy fidgets with his scarf and looks over at his mother. "Did he touch you?' He nods. "Did he hurt you when he touched you?" ''Yes," he whispers. "Did he rape you?" He buries his face in his scarf and nods yes. Sexual abuse is a pervasive and longstanding problem at madrassas in Pakistan, an Associated Press investigation has...
  • France should introduce Sharia law and create a Muslim state to avoid civil war says professor

    French professor Christian de Moliner claims it would be impossible to mollify the 30 per cent of Muslims who want to introduce Sharia law in the country without complying with their desires. According to the professor the solution is to create two states with a French law for the French and Sharia law for Muslims who choose for it. He says: “We will never be able to eradicate radical Islamism… While we are not yet at open war, the faithful of the Prophet are already regrouping in areas sometimes governed by special rules.” De Moliner adds that in France a...

    Sexual harassment/misconduct charges have exploded across the landscape leaving no segment of society untouched: Hollywood, comedy, news media, restauranteurs, publishing, business, art, government, and of course, politics.Why, I wondered to nobody in particular, have all these cases just now come crawling out of the closet? It’s not as if this pig-like behavior hasn’t been going on forever - 30 years in the Weinstein case alone. So I can’t help but wonder who is churning this latest outrage which looks oddly similar to the organizing forces behind Black Lives Matter. I seriously doubt if it is the Left as they seem to...

When they carried out attacks I didn’t protest — it’s only a small group of radicals, which doesn’t...
