Summary: 

Despite their ongoing antagonisms—played out, prominently, on Fox News—a bizarre, shared apologetic has emerged which denies the irrefragable sanctioning of female genital mutilation/“circumcision” (FGM/C) by canonical Islamic tradition (“hadith”), and over 1100 years of authoritative, mainstream Islamic jurisprudence. The strange bedfellow antagonists engaged in these overlapping apologetics about FGM/C are the Clarion Foundation and its film “Honor Diaries,” allied with the Ayaan Hirsi Ali Foundation (Ms. Ali is also listed as the film’s executive producer), “versus” the Hamas-linked cultural jihadist organization, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Fox News has served as overseer of this “conflict” cum consensus, while also reinforcing the fallacy that FGM/C is simply a tragic manifestation of misogynistic patriarchal trends that are generic, and have “no basis” in Islam and the Sharia, Islamic law.

Summary: 
  • Muslim vigilantes enforcing Islamic justice have become increasingly common in Germany. The government's inability or unwillingness to stop them has led to the rise of anti-Muslim counter-vigilantes. Germany's BfV intelligence agency, in its latest annual report, warned that an escalating action-reaction cycle could result in open warfare on German streets.

A RADICAL Islamist group facing a government ban has sparked outrage across the country after a senior member gave a keynote speech at the headquarters of Universities UK.

Summary: 
  • Not only does no other religion in Turkey, other than Islam, have the power, influence or financing of the Religious Affairs Directorate (Diyanet) -- whose budget even surpasses that of most ministries; other religions are either not officially recognized (as in the cases of Alevism and Yazidism), or are on the verge of complete governmental elimination -- as in the cases of Judaism, Greek Orthodoxy, Assyrian (Syriac) and Armenian Christianity.

  • "...[S]ince the creation of the world there is only one religion and it is the religion of Islam.... therefore, when Islam was not in that area before Mohammed came to it, it should have been there....So any place like this had to be freed, not to be conquered...And therefore, there is no Islamic occupation. If somebody occupies anything, it will always be somebody else, not the Muslims. So, there is no Islamic occupation. There is only Islamic liberation." -- Moshe Sharon, Professor Emeritus of Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies, Hebrew University of Jerusalem

  • To be effective, however, policies safeguarding religious liberty must include conducting an honest and open discussion of the history and doctrine of Islam, as well as its contemporary iteration, not as a "religion of peace" -- which, in Islam, is to occur only after the entire world has accepted Allah, as well as Islamic law, Sharia -- but as one of war and terror.

Summary: 

A Sheffield-based Muslim radio station has had its license revoked for broadcasting more than 25 hours of sermons “encouraging and condoning” violence against non-Muslims.

Summary: 

When it comes to Islam, I criticize the ideology AND its followers. I can't understand how anyone could take a good look at Islamic texts and tenets and come to the conclusion that they're in any way tolerable let alone great! I don't advocate or condone violence, but I am compelled to call a spade a spade. I don't care if these people are brainwashed -- they should know better. No ideology can be active without adherents. I hold PEOPLE accountable for embracing barbaric ideology.

"A jirga [village council] had ordered the rape of a 16-year-old girl as punishment, as her brother had raped a 12-year-old," police official Allah Baksh told AFP.

Summary: 

Apostasy and blasphemy may seem to many like artifacts of history. But in dozens of countries around the world, laws against apostasy and blasphemy remain on the books and often are enforced.

Last December, for instance, authorities in Sudan charged 25 men for apostasy – the act of abandoning one’s faith — including by converting to another religion. The men face the death penalty for following a different interpretation of Islam than the one sanctioned by the government. And, in Pakistan, police are currently pursuing a Christian accused of sending an allegedly blasphemous poem to a friend. Blasphemy – defined as speech or actions considered to be contemptuous of God or the divine – is a capital crime in Pakistan.

  • She says it was a mistake to open strict, Islamic law Sharia courts in this country
Summary: 

“We respect religious groups to carry out slaughter in the UK according to how they define and read their scriptures. What we do not allow however is for the rights and demands of groups within those religions override the UK’s compassionate traditions of animal welfare.

“There are a significant number of UK consumers that would prefer not to eat meat killed by religious slaughter. So, UKIP will also write into law that all animal meat produce will have mandatory labelling – providing clearly both the method of production and slaughter – giving people greater transparency and choice.

“UKIP’s forthcoming manifesto on animal welfare will be the strongest of any major political party in the UK.”

Summary: 
  • Were terror attacks like this simply something that the British public would have to get used to, as the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, had suggested? What if the public did not want to get used to them?

  • That the UK authorities allowed the "Al-Quds Day" march to proceed through the streets of London and for Palestine Expo to assemble such an array of speakers just down the road from one of this year's terror attacks, suggests that all that has happened this year in Britain is extremely very far from "enough".

  • So, rather than expecting resilience, the British people will have to be prepared to accept still more terror -- and doubtless more pointless platitudes to follow each attack -- as surely as they have followed all the attacks before.

Summary: 

Conclusion.

Starting with the premise that Islamic terrorism “has nothing to do with Islam” we can logically deduce that:

  • The Sharia has nothing to do with Islam.
  • The Sunnah has nothing to do with Islam.
  • Mohammed has nothing to do with Islam.
  • The Quran has nothing to do with Islam.
  • Allah has nothing to do with Islam.

Thus none of Islam’s foundational texts and personalities actually have anything whatsoever to do with Islam.

To put this in a nutshell we arrive at the conclusion that: Islam has nothing to do with Islam.

This is an example of “reductio ad absurdam” (reduction to absurdity). Thus those who peddle this line are either liars or themselves deceived.

Summary: 

Of course. What other than bigotry could possibly lead anyone to oppose the institutionalized subjugation of women and non-Muslims, the extinguishing of the freedom of speech and the freedom of conscience, the death penalty for apostasy and much more? Concern for human rights? Pah! It’s “Islamophobia”!

Summary: 

When asked about Islamophobia in the media, his response was somewhat confusing. He said that there was no such thing as Islamophobia, but also said that being terrified of IS was not an irrational fear, thus not a phobia. Like many others of Tawhidi’s, this argument has been heard before in conservative discourse on Islam.

Summary: 
  • The 615-page survey found that more than 100,000 British Muslims sympathize with suicide bombers and people who commit other terrorist acts. Moreover, only one in three British Muslims (34%) would contact the police if they believed that somebody close to them had become involved with jihadists.

  • "[W]e have to adopt a far more muscular approach to integration than ever, replacing the failed policy of multiculturalism... Britain's liberal Muslims are crying out for this challenge to be confronted. ... There is a life-and-death struggle for the soul of British Islam -- and this is not a battle that the rest of us can afford to sit out. We need to take sides... We have 'understood' too much, and challenged too little -- and in doing so are in danger of sacrificing a generation of young British people to values that are antithetical to the beliefs of most of us, including many Muslims." — Trevor Phillips, former head of Britain's Equality and Human Rights Commission.

  • The survey does show that 88% of British Muslims believe Britain is a good place for Muslims to live. According to Philips, this is because the tolerance they enjoy in Britain allows them to do whatever they want.

Summary: 

If Joey Rasdien had said anything remotely negative about Judaism or Christianity, he would have been celebrated as an “edgy” and “iconoclastic” comedian. But when he dared say something mildly critical about Islam, he and the organizers of the event where this took place had to issue abject apologies. The whole world is cowering in fear before barbarians who will murder you for insulting them.

Summary: 

When one thinks of mass murder, Hitler comes to mind. If not Hitler, then Tojo, Stalin, or Mao. Credit is given to the 20th-century totalitarians as the worst species of tyranny to have ever arisen. However, the alarming truth is that Islam has killed more than any of these, and may surpass all of them combined in numbers and cruelty.

The enormity of the slaughters of the "religion of peace" are so far beyond comprehension that even honest historians overlook the scale. When one looks beyond our myopic focus, Islam is the greatest killing machine in the history of mankind, bar none.

Summary: 

FINALLY, THE TRUTH about Islam. After all of the ahistorical, naively well-meaning but misleading accounts of Islam offered by Western political academics, and the mainstream mass media, finally, in Harold Rhode’s “Modern Islamic Warfare,” we get an historically grounded, sociologically sophisticated, true account of expansionistic Islamic civilization. Understanding the nature of Islam is particularly important because Muslim organizations, in the interests of Muslim expansionism and dominance, often strive to obscure and deny their real intentions and goals. And even when they admit their objectives, as in the Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood charters, Western leaders ignore or deny Muslim intentions. Rhode makes clear the challenge that the West faces; either we take up the Islamic challenge, or lose the West.

Muhammad bin Musa Al Nasr preached: “O Muslim, O servant of Allah, O Muslim, O servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.” That is why the arrest warrant has been issued.

But this is a quotation that is attributed to Muhammad:

“Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Messenger said, ‘The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”’” (Bukhari 4.52.177)

Summary: 

In the immediate aftermath of the massacre of civilians in Tunisia David Cameron, the U.K.'s Prime-minister has once again assured the British public and non-Muslims worldwide that the attack was not carried out “in the name of Islam. Islam is a religion of peace.” The killers, rather, “do it in the name of a twisted, perverted ideology.”

Of course I believe what he says.

It is a great relief to me that I have such an Islamically educated man as the leader of my Country. Perhaps we should call him Mufti sheikh Imam Ayatollah Cameron to reflect his encyclopaedic knowledge of Islam.

You think I'm being sarcastic?

No, listen:
