Summary: 

A jogger has told how he was almost drowned by a canal-path thug - and only escaped by speaking to them in Arabic. Dad-of-two Lee Skinner, 38, was punched in the face and knocked into the freezing water as he ran past five hooded youths in Acocks Green . As he struggled to get out of the cold, slippery canal the thug who punched him was waiting - until the former language teacher started speaking Arabic. The shame-faced gang, all aged around 17, then fled the scene and the attacker is now being hunted by police.

Steven Ellis and Jason Hendry were told tensions were high as the EDL was about to march while Muslims celebrated Ramadan. Two animal lovers were branded paedophiles and pelted with stones by dozens of men for wearing mankinis on a sponsored walk. Steven Ellis, 41, and brother-in-law Jason Hendry, 22, had to be rescued by police after being attacked by outraged residents in a city street [Birmingham]. The duo, who were raising money for a dogs’ home, said officers told them the skimpy outfits had offended Muslims living along the route.

Summary: 
  • European officials have been not only mute about the Iranian regime's attacks on its own people. They have also been missing "a robust defense of Western values", now under attack in Iran: freedom of expression, freedom of assembly, separation of religion and state, judicial due process.

  • The European Union these days is alarmed about political reforms in Poland, but totally quiet about Erdogan's "coup against civilians" in Turkey.

  • How is it possible that Pope Francis, the world's highest Catholic authority, does not feel any urgency to denounce the avalanche of anti-Semitism and hate coming from the Islamic authorities, but pleased them by sending a letter of support?

  • As these last few years of terror attacks should have proven to them, they delude themselves if they think that this deadly ideology will be kept confined to Tehran, Ramallah or Ankara.

Summary: 

Parents are the primary socialization agents of religiosity. They provide their children with a basis for a religious worldview, set examples of religious behavior and decide on religious education and participation in religious events (Bao et al. 1999; Regnerus et al. 2004; Ruiter and Van Tubergen 2009). Parents are more important in the development of one’s religiosity than other socialization agents like school or peers (Hunsberger and Brown 1984; Hayes and Pittelkow 1993; Myers 1996; Sherkat 1998). There is firm evidence for the intergenerational transmission of religiosity from parents to their offspring during childhood and adolescence; studies also confirm that this transmission lasts up to adulthood (e.g. Willits and Crider 1989; Myers 1996; Martin et al. 2003). Several parenting factors are found to facilitate the intergenerational transmission of religiosity. The transmission is strongest when there is a warm and positive parent–child relationship, when the child is raised by both biological parents and if parents agree in their religiosity (Myers 1996; Sherkat and Wilson 1995; Bao et al. 1999; Granqvist 2002; Bader and Desmond 2006; Abar et al. 2009). However, the transmission of religiosity from parents to children does not happen independently from the social context. The socialization of children takes place within a society and families are embedded in communities and social networks; these factors have a potential influence on how successful parents are in transmitting their religious views and practices (Sherkat 2003; Vermeer et al. 2012). In the case of immigrants whose beliefs and practices differ from those of the majority population in a country, the transmission of religiosity might be less effective than among families in a majority situation (Kwak 2003). On the other hand, religious transmission might be fostered when families are integrated into communities in which their beliefs and views are shared by others.

Summary: 

An academic study by Cardiff University shows that the proportion of adult Muslims actively practising the faith they were brought up in as children was 77%. That compares with 29% of Christians and 65% of other religions. The study also found that 98% of Muslim children surveyed said they had the religion their parents were brought up in, compared with 62% of Christians and 89% of other religions. The team analysed data from the Home Office's 2003 Citizenship Survey data, using 13,988 replies from adults and 1,278 from young people aged 11 to 15.

This higher passing on of religion from generation to generation is, the researchers say, because of a higher involvement in religious organisations. The researchers write: "It is well known that there is considerable supplementary education for Muslim children such as the formal learning of the Qur'an in Arabic. The apparently much higher rates of intergenerational transmission in Muslims and members of other non-Christian non-Muslim religions are certainly worthy of further exploration and may in fact pose a challenge to blanket judgements about the decline of British religion. "These higher rates might suggest support for the theory that for minority ethnic populations, religion can be an important resource in bolstering a sense of cultural distinctiveness." Children are sent to madrassas and mosques to be heavily indoctrinated into Islam.

...

Terry Sanderson, President of theNational Secular Society, said: "When one is raised to believe that a particular religion is your whole identity and this idea is heavily reinforced in childhood by constant indoctrination in mosques and madrassas as well as at home by parents who have been similarly brainwashed, then there is little wonder that most Muslims cannot think outside a religious box."

Summary: 

Prisons in the UK and the US are becoming breeding grounds for jihadis. In the UK, Paul Song called attention to this fact, and ended up getting fired by the Muslim managing chaplain after false accusations from a Muslim inmate.

The shattered, staggering, dhimmi UK will before too long reap what it is sowing in its prisons.
