    As she lay on the ground after being shot and then slashed with a machete, Dune James Rike looked into her husband’s tear-filled eyes and asked, “Is this the end between us, so we shall not be together again?” Pastor James Musa Rike told Compass he held the hands of his dying, 35-year-old wife and told her, “Hold on to your faith in Jesus, and we shall meet and never part again.” Muslim extremists who attacked Kurum village, in the Bogoro local government area of Nigeria’s Bauchi state, had already killed two of the couple’s children in a rampage that...

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | 5/3/11 | Henry K. Lee, Chronicle Staff Writer
    The Oakland police sergeant who led the investigation into the slaying of journalist Chauncey Bailey denied in court Tuesday that he had promised to protect the former leader of Your Black Muslim Bakery from criminal liability in the case. Sgt. Derwin Longmire's comments came as the trial of Yusuf Bey IV, 25, the one-time head of the self-described black empowerment group, and a former bakery member drew near a close. Alameda County prosecutor Melissa Krum referred to a conversation secretly recorded by police in 2007 in which Bey boasted to followers that his ties with Longmire were "the reason they...

    [...] The 39-year-old CBS foreign correspondent said she was convinced she was going to die when the frenzied mob tore her away from her film crew and bodyguard in Cairo's Tahrir Square. A group of at least 200 men beat her, pinched her and tore at her clothes in a 40-minute attack that only ended when a group of women came to her aid. She told the New York Times: 'For an extended period of time, they raped me with their hands...What really struck me was how merciless they were. 'They really enjoyed my pain and suffering.

    Arutz Sheva - IsraelNationalNews ^ | 4/26/11 | Cinnamon Stillwell & Judith Greblya
    Faculty members at departments of Jewish Studies in the USA are evidencing anti-Israel (anti-Semitic) tendencies as do their colleagues in Middle East Studies. The field of Middle East studies is notorious for producing apologias for radical Islam, particularly where anti-Israel and, at times, anti-Semitic sentiment is concerned. These same tendencies are also increasingly common in an unexpected sector of university life: Jewish studies. An open letter dated March 3, 2011, and signed by 30 University of California Jewish studies faculty members, is a case in point. The letter to the Orange County District Attorney concerns the orchestrated disruption of a...

    Punishment attack ordered because her 12-year-old brother was judged to have offended a clan's honour . A Pakistani victim of a village council-sanctioned gang rape, who became a symbol of the country's oppressed women, says her life is in danger after the Supreme Court acquitted 13 men accused of the crime. The ruling leaves just one of the initial 14 suspects in prison. Mukhtaran Mai was attacked on the orders of a village council in Punjab province nine years ago as a punishment because her brother - who was 12 at the time - was judged to have offended the...

    HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED why millions of Muslim men are dedicated to killing Americans? Or why so many are willing to blow themselves up to kill Israelis? Or why they are so committed to blowing up random people in Bali, London, Madrid, etc.? Islamic supremacists are doing this all over the world, attacking Westerners and their own fellow Muslims alike. Why? Because of a doctrine. A doctrine is a collection of ideas. These could be customs, words, beliefs, etc. A religion is not a single idea; it is a collection of ideas. The collection of ideas that make up the...

    JERUSALEM – An anti-tank missile fired from the Gaza Strip struck a school bus in southern Israel Thursday, wounding two people, one of them critically, and prompting fierce Israeli retaliation that killed five Palestinians. Israel unleashed airstrikes and tank fire against Hamas targets across the border. It was the heaviest assault on the coastal territory since a broad military offensive two years ago. Besides the dead, more than 30 Palestinians were wounded, said Palestinian health official Adham Abu Salmiya. He said one of the dead was a 50-year-old civilian who was sitting outside his home when he was struck by...

    Debates over how peaceful Islam have been going on ever since I can remember, and especially since September 11, 2001. Pastor Terry Jones and his congregation held a trial for the Koran, found it guilty and burned it. Next he is going to put Mohammad on trial. Pastor Jones and his followers are nuts. They have the right though to burn the Koran in America or any religious book, though to do so is twisted and wrong. But there is something more sick, twisted, wrong and an abomination. It is Radical Islam. Radical Islam practiced heavily in North Africa, The...
  • Obama: Actively Helping to Advance the Islamists' Agenda

    03/26/2011 8:20:55 AM PDT · by Michael van der Galien · 6 replies
    Islamic law (sharia) contradicts the notion that all human beings are entitled to be treated with equal dignity and have inalienable rights. Islamic law separates believers from nonbelievers, sanctioning inferior status, if not outright death, for the latter. In this worldview, religious tolerance is a one-way street. Women in Islam are degraded to submissiveness under misogynist laws. Children are taught to hate. Critical thought that questions official Islamic doctrines is regarded as the crime of defamation of Islam, punishable by death. The Obama administration has joined the chorus of apologists and “makeover artists” who insist that only extremist fundamentalists practice...

    Historical facts say that Islam has been imperialistic—and would still like to be, if only for religious reasons. Many Muslim clerics, scholars, and activists, for example, would like to impose Islamic law  around the world. Historical facts say that Islam, including Muhammad, launched their own Crusades against Christianity long before the European Crusades.Today, Muslim polemicists and missionaries, who believe that Islam is the best religion in the world, claim that the West has stolen Islamic lands and that the West (alone) is imperialistic.One hardline Muslim emailer to me said about the developed West and the undeveloped  Islamic countries: 'You...

    Just when it seemed as though the misuse of language and imagery associated with the Holocaust could get no worse, along came "Never Again for Anyone." A national speaking tour designed to coincide with International Holocaust Remembrance Day, "Never Again for Anyone" traveled the U.S. from January 25 through February 19, 2011, landing at the First Presbyterian Church in Oakland, California on February 17. The event was a benefit for the virulently anti-Israel organization, the Middle East Children's Alliance (MECA). The purpose of the tour was pernicious: to draw a connection between the Holocaust and the Arab-Israeli conflict, with Israelis cast as the new...

The two groups faced off in the walkway in front of City Hall before the council meeting shouting at each other through bullhorns and brandishing signs with phrases such as, "I'm a Muslim not a terrorist,"...
