    On both sides of the Atlantic, the Salafist form of Islam exists in all its complexity. THE word “Salafism” is often used loosely, especially in continental Europe. When the relationship between Islam and jihadist violence is discussed in, say, France or Germany, the assumption is often made that the problem begins and ends with the Salafis—who put overwhelming emphasis on the first three generations of Muslims and who are thought to have professed the faith at its purest. This Franco-German sloppiness can be bewildering to Islam-watchers in Britain where Salafis have at times been encouraged to play a part in...

    <p>JOLO, Philippines -- Two bombs minutes apart tore through a Roman Catholic cathedral on a southern Philippine island where Muslim militants are active, killing at least 20 people and wounding 111 others during a Sunday Mass, officials said.</p> <p>Witnesses said the first blast inside the Jolo cathedral in the provincial capital sent churchgoers, some of them wounded, to stampede out of the main door. Army troops and police posted outside were rushing in when the second bomb went off about one minute later near the main entrance, causing more deaths and injuries. The military was checking a report that the second explosive device may have been attached to a parked motorcycle.</p>
  • British Government Calls Christianity a Religion of Violence in Rejection of Iranian Asylum Seeker

    Acts 17 Apologetics ^ | 3/25/19 | David wood
    In 2016, an Iranian ex-Muslim sent an application to Great Britain for asylum. The man said that he had converted to Christianity after studying the Bible and finding that Christianity is a religion of peace. The British Home Office rejected the application and insisted that the apostate was lying. The Home Office justified their rejection by quoting Bible verses from Exodus, Leviticus, and Revelation that were meant to prove that Christianity is not peaceful and that no one could ever conclude that it is peaceful by reading the Bible. Is there a problem in the British Government? Should Prime Minister...

    Jammu and Kashmir: Muslims take 12-year-old boy hostage and kill him despite mother’s appeal “Atif and his uncle, Abdul Hameed, were abducted when the family tried to flee the house as security forces cordoned off the area.” The jihadis apparently thought that by fleeing, they were siding with unbelievers against the believers, and therefore the boy could lawfully be taken hostage and killed. “J&K: 12-year-old boy held hostage, killed despite mother’s appeal to militants,” by Adil Akhzer, Indian Express, March 23, 2019: A 12-year-old boy held hostage in Bandipora for around nine hours was killed Friday by militants before they...

    Academia has filled the heads of their students with pipe dreams of Marxism and communism, where everyone's problems will be solved by the benevolent government. Katie Hopkins warned Americans about the dangers of unrestricted Islamic immigration and described in frank detail how it has affected the U.K. and Europe, contributing to a social decline and an inimical atmosphere. Thanks to Barack Obama’s eight-year Islamophobic presidency, unrestricted immigration has spread to the United States. Michael Savage, the conservative talk show host, was banned from the U.K. for alleged hate speech which offended Islam. Few advocated on his behalf to protect his...

    Excerpt only.... Law professor Khaled Beydoun posted a widely shared Twitter thread featuring the lives and stories of the many individuals shot dead at prayer. He explained in an op-ed: "For far too long, American audiences have been largely unsympathetic to slain Muslims. ... Saying their names, and telling their stories as best I could ... immersing myself in learning about people, who were killed for adhering to my very faith, was an emotional journey like no other." This is the very epitome of hyprocrisy. So many non-muslims deliberately slaughtered for being non-muslim and adhering to their faiths with shouts...
  • Who's Responsible for Terrorist Attacks? (Interview with Prophet Muhammad)

    Acts17Apologetics ^ | David Wood
    After every terrorist attack, we hear contradictory rules about assigning blame for the attack. Should we only blame the perpetrators of the attacks? Or their ideologies as well? Or perhaps anyone who shares any views with the attacker, whether these views are related to the attack or not? Fortunately for us, history's greatest authority on terrorism, the Prophet Muhammad himself, agreed to do an interview with David Wood. Now when someone brings up the Christchurch Mosque Massacre or some other mass shooting, you'll have insights from Prophet Muhammad himself. (Guest starring Vocab Malone!)

    Political street artist Sabo put up a number of signs criticizing anti-Semitic comments from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) in the Woodland Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles amid the freshman lawmaker’s appearance in town for a speech. Ilhan Omar is scheduled to speak at a fundraiser for the controversial Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in Los Angeles Saturday. Counter-events have been organized against her appearance. “CAIR-LA is honored to have Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) as the featured speaker for the 4th Annual Valley Banquet,” the group’s website states...

    The Democrats won’t say a word about this. They have already learned that nothing negative whatsoever can be said about Omar, on pain of charges of “Islamophobia.” And support for Hamas-linked CAIR is mainstream among the Democrats. They routinely appear at CAIR events and have no apparent interest in what the group is all about. CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR officials have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror....

    UPMC Health Plan, Dollar Bank and Trib Total Media this week have all withdrawn their support for an April Founder’s Day fundraiser for St. Barnabas Charities after at least one local man asked them if the honoree and speaker at the event, Fox News commentator Jeanine Pirro, “reflect the values of your institution.” Ms. Pirro was strongly criticized after comments she made on her Fox News show, “Justice With Judge Jeanine” on March 9 when she said of U.S. Rep.

    A mother in the Australian state of Queensland who took her two daughters to Somalia for genital mutilation has been warned she faces four years in prison for her crime. The woman cannot be named to protect the identities of her children, however court records confirm she is the first person to be sentenced in the northern state for removing a child for the purposes of female genital mutilation. She was found guilty of taking her daughters, then aged 10 and 13, to her birth country in April 2015 for the procedure, and will have her sentence suspended after eight...

    Jihad Watch ^ | 1/21/19 | Robert Spencer
    The Shia Muslim community in Sweden is concerned about its safety “if Islamic State militants return home.” Unfortunately for the Shia, Leftist Swedes believe that it is “racist” for Sweden not to embrace Swedish jihadis as they would any other Swedish citizen. Many other nations, such as Canada, hold the same view. Leftists and the many charlatans who are gainfully employed in the anti- “racism” industry have managed to exacerbate racial divisions. In this industry, those who do not fit their narrative do not exist. Muslims who are threatened by other Muslims do not exist; neither do blacks who are...

    A dozen Catholic churches have been desecrated across France over the period of one week in an egregious case of anti-Christian vandalism. The recent spate of church profanations has puzzled both police and ecclesiastical leaders, who have mostly remained silent as the violations have spread up and down France. Last Sunday, marauders set fire to the church of Saint-Sulpice — one of Paris’ largest and most important churches — shortly after the twelve-o’clock Mass. Police have concluded that the fire was the result of arson and are now looking for possible suspects. The restoration of the church from the damage...

    The governing centre-right coalition in the Netherlands has lost its senate majority after a populist party surged in provincial elections. The anti-immigration Forum for Democracy is set to win most votes and have as many seats in the upper house as Prime Minister Mark Rutte's party. The election came two days after a suspected terror attack in Utrecht. Addressing supporters, party leader Thierry Baudet bitterly criticised Mr Rutte's immigration policies. "Successive Rutte governments have left our borders wide open, letting in hundreds of thousands of people with cultures completely different to ours," he told the cheering crowd. Mr Baudet, who...
