    (Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Friday called Huma Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, an "American patriot" after a group of Republican lawmakers accused her of having ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist political organization. "She has been nothing less than extraordinary in representing our country and the democratic values that we hold dear," Obama said at a White House Iftar dinner celebrating the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. "The American people owe her a debt of gratitude because Huma is an American patriot and an example of what we need in this country...

PEACE IN ISLAM Qur'an 25:63 says, "When Muslims are addressed by the ignorant they should reply, ‘PEACE.' This means when anyone who is ignorant of the terrible truth about Islamic law and history asks Muslims about Islam, they can be deluded into thinking that Islam is peaceful and tolerant. And ignorance, while it can be bliss, is in this case fatal. 3:28 "Let not the believers take for friends or helpers unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, they shall have no...

    WASHINGTON — Passover and Easter — intrinsically linked in the Jewish and Christian traditions — are being celebrated this weekend. For observant Jews, Passover commemorates the Hebrews' liberation from slavery under Egypt's Pharaoh. For faithful Christians, Easter is a celebration of Jesus' resurrection from the grave and the fulfillment of a new covenant between God and man. Biblical passages in Exodus 12, Matthew 28, Mark 16, Luke 24 and John 20 describe these historical events and the reasons for festivities among people of faith. But this year, these holidays are a time of extraordinary anxiety for Christians and Jews...

    ALLEN PARK, Mich. — Protesters descended on a Lowe's store in one of the country's largest Arab-American communities on Saturday, calling for a boycott after the home improvement chain pulled its ads from a reality television show about five Muslim families living in Michigan. About 100 people gathered outside the store in Allen Park, a Detroit suburb adjacent to the city where "All-American Muslim" is filmed. Lowe's said this week that the TLC show had become a "lightning rod" for complaints, following an email campaign by a conservative Christian group. Protesters including Christian clergy and lawmakers called for unity and...

    Last Friday I was on the Sean Hannity Show, debating Muslim activist Michael Ghouse on the future of Libya. Debating Michael Ghouse is like shooting kuffar in a barrel. But Friday night, Ghouse presented me with an enormous Qur'an, courtesy of the Muslim Brotherhood-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR): The Message of the Qur'an, Translated and Explained by Muhammad Asad. Giving out these giant door-stoppers is further proof of Hamas-linked CAIR's limitless resources. Inside, Ghouse had written this inscription: "Quran has 25 translations. 2 are bad -- One by Christian Kings other by Muslims -- both to generate hate for...

Noted Islamic theologian and scholar Sheikh Odeh A. Muhawesh shared his view Monday at Winona State University of the similarities and often exaggerated differences between Christians and Muslims.

    GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The anti-Muslim leader of a tiny Florida church says he was lied to and is rethinking his decision to cancel burning Qurans to mark 9/11. Pastor Terry Jones earlier Thursday had backed off his threat to burn the Quran after he said he was promised that a planned Islamic center and mosque would be moved away from New York's ground zero. Muslim leaders denied there was such a deal. Later outside his church he said that the imam he thought he made the deal with "clearly, clearly lied to us" about moving the mosque.

    A Florida pastor who called off a Quran burning said late Thursday he was "rethinking our position" after a proposed meeting over the location of an Islamic center near New York's ground zero went unconfirmed. The dramatic development was one of several twists on a day when President Barack Obama and Defense Secretary Robert Gates urged the Rev. Terry Jones to call off the Saturday event, timed for the ninth anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. During the afternoon, Jones canceled his plan to burn copies of the Quran, based on what he said were assurances from a...

Minister of State for Industries Ayatullah Durrani, who belongs to the ruling Pakistan People''s Party, said the upcoming Eid-ul-Fitr festival, expected to be observed on September 11, would be a "golden opportunity" for Obama to offer Eid prayers and declare himself the leader of all Muslims.

    US President Barack Obama blamed a "network of misinformation" for keeping alive persistent rumors that he is Muslim, but he shrugged off the misconception as being out of his control. "There is a mechanism, a network of misinformation, that in a new media era can get churned out there constantly," Obama said in an interview with NBC television. He said the recurring controversy was something he will not allow himself to spend too much time on, however. "I'm not going to be worrying too much about whatever rumors are floating out there," Obama said. "If I spend all my time...

The Rev. Franklin Graham waded into the discussion with his own controversial explanation of why people wrongly believe the president is a Muslim. Graham, who prayed with Obama in a session with his father, Billy Graham, earlier this year, was asked whether he has any doubts about Obama's self-avowed Christian faith.

    His campaign blamed "shameful, shadowy attackers." The media actually blamed the media (and human nature). But the only person to blame for the surprising number of Americans who think the president is a Muslim is Barack Hussein Obama. So says author and Boston talk-radio personality Chuck Morse. "Obama bears the lion's share of the responsibility for any confusion," said Morse. "There are only two scenarios that can dispel it – and with Islamic law undergirding both – neither is very comforting."

This mission has been largely successful...Al-Qaeda is dispersed, on the run and unable to direct attacks of the kind it executed routinely in the 1990s... It's true that the security situation in Afghanistan has deteriorated considerably...Is it worth the effort to gain control of all 35,000 Afghan villages scattered throughout the country?......

Before this, investors worried that Barack Obama would double the 15% tax rate on cap gains and bring the 15% rate on dividends back to 40%. Can investors take some relief from this?...

In fact, we feel badly that one of the largest religions in the world is being insulted by a leading contender for the US Presidency. So much for unity.Barack Obama has made it very clear that he considers it a “smear” to be Muslim, or to be labeled a Muslim.The proof of that is right out in the open, on his campaign’s “Fight The Smears” webpage, where he “fights”...

    In Isi Leibler's "Candidly Speaking" (July 29), we read the same myths regarding the kingdom of Saudi Arabia; sweeping statements are presented as immutable fact. In 2005, one of my closest professional partners (as well as closest friends) and I planned for and created a model for a Saudi-sponsored interfaith dialogue to be ideally hosted by King Abdullah in Spain. We worked on the concept in Riyadh, where I live. (For the record, she is Jewish and visits the kingdom frequently.) We submitted the business plan to specific members of the royal family, and three years later the dialogue materialized...

    Syria's ambassador to the United States on Monday was quoted as calling for ending the "state of war" with Israel. "We offer the big thing ? let's sit together, make peace and finish once and for all this state of war. What could be better than that?" "We desire to recognise each other and end the state of war," Imad Mustafa told a gathering of activists in Washington allied with Israel's Peace Now movement, in comments aired on Israeli army radio. "Here is then a grand thing on offer. Let us sit together, let us make peace, let us end...

    Prime Minister in open rebuke to President Bush in Washington after US missile strike on Pakistani soil Tensions between Pakistan and the United States came to the fore last night when Yousuf Raza Gilani, the new Pakistani Prime Minister, met President Bush and warned him not to launch "unilateral" strikes on Pakistani soil. The meeting came just hours after Pakistani security officials said that a suspected US missile strike on a village in Pakistan's northern tribal areas might have killed an al-Qaeda chemical and biological weapons expert. Mr Gilani, who has been under pressure to do more to combat al-Qaeda...

    Iran may be Israel's sworn enemy but a senior official said the Islamic Republic was nevertheless friendly to the Jewish state's people, a news agency reported. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has branded Israel a "stinking corpse" and predicts its imminent demise, but one of his deputies struck a more conciliatory note on Saturday. Esfandiyar Rahim Masha'i, a vice-president in charge of tourism and cultural affairs, also reached out to people in the United States, Iran's other arch foe, in his speech. "Today Iran is friendly with the peoples of America and Israel," he told a tourism fair in Tehran, the...

    Gallup says only 7 percent of the world's Muslims are political radicals. Yet 36 percent think the 9/11 attacks were in some way justified.On the inside back cover of books published by Gallup Press there is the following breathtaking statement: Gallup Press exists to educate and inform the people who govern, manage, teach and lead the world's six billion citizens. Each book meets Gallup's requirements of integrity, trust and independence and is based on a Gallup-approved science and research. Don't be distracted by the bad grammar. Focus instead on Gallup's "requirements of integrity, trust and independence." Thanks to a remarkable...

    After the attacks of 9/11, many people in the West, including Christians, were asking, “Where are the moderate Muslims?” They may have showed up last fall. A group of what appeared to be moderate Muslim leaders sent a conciliatory message to representatives of the Catholic, Eastern Orthodox and Protestant faiths, offering to work toward a more peaceful coexistence between the world’s two largest religions. How should Christians in the West respond to this offer? A basis for peace? Issued October 13, 2007, and titled A Common Word Between Us and You, the Muslim document stressed the need for peace between...

    Islamic concept of Al-Taqiyah to infiltrate and destroy kafir countriesAuthor: Dr. Walid Publication: Bharatiya Pragna Date: June 2000 URL: http://www.fisiusa.org/fisi_News_items/news109.htm This article by Dr. Walid, a top scholar at the Islamic University, exposes our so-called secular Indian Muslims. By the doctrine of Al-Taqiyah, Muslims dominate crime syndicates, increase population by massive Bangladeshi infiltration and make temporary alliances with Dalits, Christians, etc. In the early years of the Islamic conquest of the Arabian peninsula and in the Fatah (Arab-Islamic invasion and conquest of the upper Middle East and the outside world), a Muslim concept was devised to achieve success against the...
