    AMONG contemporary tyrants, Saddam Hussein ranked among the most brutal until the dawn hanging ended his life just as the most important holiday of the Islamic calendar, Eid al-Adha, the Festival of the Sacrifice, began. Not only was he responsible for the deaths of perhaps as many as two million people, including his own countrymen, he held power throughout his reign by wielding a savagely primitive tribal feudalism on a massive scale. His tools were treachery, betrayal, revenge and assassination and they kept him in power in Iraq for more than 30 years. Though the 69-year-old was executed after his...
  • The Most Brutal Dictator of our time: SADDAM w/ Quran, devout Muslim (just like Idi Amin)

    Most brutal dictator of our time SADDAM w/ Quran, devout Muslim (just like Idi Amin) The media like to paint him as "secular". Well, let's just check some facts, Shall we? Saddam holds a Quran all the time during his trial (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/9652810/ Saddam — holding a copy of the Quran he brought with him into the session and held throughout — replied quietly, “I said what I said. I am not guilty,” referring to his arguments earlier in the session). 1990 Interview on ABC's Diana Sawyer he so (ironicolly) says "The biggest sin a man can make is to forget...

  • Somalia: Islam is Official Religion, Conversion is Banned

    AllAfrica ^ | Sep, 21, 2006
    Somalia is officially an Islamic state and conversion is prohibited. The country has a population of approximately 8.3 million, nearly all of them Sunni Muslims. There is a small, extremely low-profile Christian community. According to the International Religious Freedom Report 2006 issued by the US State Department last Friday, proselytizing for any religion except Islam is prohibited in Puntland and Somaliland and effectively blocked by informal social consensus elsewhere in the country. Somalia has had no government since the fall of Siad Barre in 1991. The Union of Islamic Courts (UIC), which grew out of individual courts' efforts to establish...

Those are the words Pope Benedict uttered that has caused quite a stir. Those words were originally uttered in the 14th century by the Byzantine Emporor Manuel II.

The new al-Qaeda field commander recently interviewed in Afghanistan, is calling for Muslims to leave the U.S. -- particularly Washington and New York -- in anticipation of a major terror attack to rival Sept. 11, says the Canada Free Press story. Like most peace loving free people of the western world, I'd like very much to believe that Islam is indeed a peaceful religion seeking a peaceful coexistence with all peaceful peoples of the world.

    Searching For Moderate MuslimsBy David Keene September 20, 2006 The Islamic world, along with the politically correct world, is in a snit because Pope Benedict had the bad judgment in an academic forum to quote a Byzantine emperor's criticism of Islam's justification of forced conversion during his time. Islamic spokesmen reacted quickly, asserting that theirs is a religion of peace, condemning the Pope and blaming him as their followers began a new round of torching Christian churches around the world and killing those who attend them. I am agnostic on the question of whether Islam is at its heart peaceful...

The warning, the first of its kind, came as many Christians in the West Bank expressed anger over a spate of attacks on churches in protest against remarks made by the pope about the Muslims and the Prophet Muhammad. Is it good for the West? The pope is a hardliner Two more churches in the West Bank were targeted on...

    Top 10 Reasons Islam Might Not Be a Religion of Peace Written by Don Feder Thursday, August 31, 2006 A passenger revolt occurred on a Malaga-Manchester flight.  Vacationing Brits refused to fly with two Arabic-speaking men.  This came in the wake of arrests of 21 British-born Muslims who were plotting to blow up as many as 11 trans-Atlantic flights. A spokesman for Britain’s opposition Tory party said the passengers panicked into “behaving irrationally.”  Fancy that, not wanting to fly with members of a faith whose adherents keep trying to blow things up.  Oh, how irrational! Within days of this incident, a Lebanese student...

    The heated charge that prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib by U.S. service personnel was somehow equivalent to that perpetrated by Saddam Hussein – a notion pervasive in the Muslim world and epitomized in the West by Sen. Edward Kennedy's remark that "we now learn that Saddam's torture chambers reopened under new management, U.S. management'' – has had ice-cold water dumped on it by a horrific new video. Screened for reporters last week by Washington's American Enterprise Institute, the 4-plus-minute video clip, reportedly obtained from the Pentagon, captures the routine beating, torture, dismemberment and decapitation that occurred daily at the hands...

    The Associated Press BAGHDAD, Iraq Feb. 21 — Dhia al-Hariri returned to Iraq after decades in exile to reclaim his father's beloved home, only to find Saddam Hussein's regime had turned it into a house of horrors. What was once the backyard is now a dark maze of iron-doored cells. One bedroom has a hook in the ceiling from which interrogators hung prisoners, breaking their arms and giving them electric shocks. "This was my grandmother's bedroom," al-Hariri, 54, said Saturday, standing in a room barren except for the remains of iron bars embedded in the floor where lines of prisoners...
