    AYHAN SURUCU was so angry when his sister started to wear make-up and date German men that he put a gun to her head at a bus stop and killed her. The 18-year-old Turk fired three bullets into her brain and calmly walked away. Boys at a nearby school, attended mainly by the children of immigrant Muslim families, cheered and applauded when news of the murder reached them. The so-called “honour killing” of Hatun Surucu, 23, last year shocked Germany and sparked intense debate about a conservative Muslim immigrant community at odds with a secular society. That anger was rekindled...

Both decrees require approval from neighbors and local authorities before a church...

    ( -- An Australian politician's comments about Muslims wanting to live under Islamic law (shari'a) has focused attention on the push by Muslim minorities in some Western countries to establish enclaves where Islamic norms and laws hold sway. In a controversial speech Thursday, Australia's federal Treasurer Peter Costello said Muslim immigrants not willing to embrace Australian values should leave, and that anyone wanting to live under shari'a might feel more comfortable living in countries where it is applied, such as Saudi Arabia or Iran, "not in Australia." Keysar Trad, president of the Sydney-based Islamic Friendship Association of Australia, accused Costello...

    Jerusalem ( -- The United States will not engage in dialogue with Hamas but nevertheless believes that the Palestinian terrorist group should be allowed to participate in upcoming Palestinian elections, U.S. Ambassador to Israel Richard Jones said on Tuesday.

Any group with such an ideology is banned from participating in Palestinian elections, according to the Oslo Accords signed between Israel and the PLO in 1993. "We of course do...
