Summary: 

Over 300 abused women have signed a statement opposing Sharia courts and religious bodies, warning of the growing threat to their rights and to their collective struggles for security and independence.

Summary: 

The Archbishop of Canterbury has used the word genocide to describe the treatment of suppressed Christians around the world in his Christmas message to churches. Most Revd Justin Welby writes of the "troubled, uncertain world" we live in and the need to stand alongside fellow believers as they endure suffering. Speaking of the treatment by extremist groups, he said: "In some places, this is motivated by a desire to eradicate the indigenous Christian presence completely. These are acts not only of terror but of genocide; criminal acts for which the international community must bring those guilty to account.

There have been many calls for the suffering experienced by Christians at the hands of Islamic State to be labelled genocide. Earlier this year the UK parliament voted to use the word and called on the government to refer the issue to the UN Security Council. Once referred, member states then have a legal duty to take action to stop the genocide. The UK government is yet to refer the issue.

Summary: 

Churches across the country are being urged by a Christian expert on radicalisation to stay vigilant during the Christmas period against the threat of terrorism, days after a deadly terror attack outside a church in Berlin. Islamic studies researcher, Antony McRoy, also called upon congregations to be "defiant" but "not give way to any kind of fear" as they celebrate Jesus' birth.

Summary: 
  • Iran's entire power structure and most of its civil society is centralized under the personal control of the Supreme Leader. In this way, Iran's dictatorship is every bit as entrenched as North Korea's, making the idea of traditional regime change a pipe dream.

  • The mullahs created a regime -- an entrenched revolution -- specifically designed to resist change or reform, adopting a unique theocratic structure that uses both Islamic ideology and brutal force to maintain absolute power.

  • There is but one regime, and it has no interest in "reform."

  • The membership of every single one of the many official-sounding bureaucratic organs is personally approved by the Supreme Leader. Indeed, any individual, or coalition of individuals who might serve as a check on his absolute power is, in fact, completely beholden to Khamenei's whims, making him the most complete and powerful dictator on the planet.

  • Elections in this regime are not indicative of any form of "democracy". Instead, they are merely a process of choosing among individuals vetted by the Supreme Leader. There are no factions based upon ideological differences, there is mere jockeying for position and the personal favor of the Supreme Leader.

  • Western governments' policy of providing concessions to the Iranian regime in order to empower "reformist" factions is based on a fantasy -- a fantasy which the Iranian regime deliberately encourages in order to fool naïve foreign leaders into easing sanctions and turning a blind eye to the nuclear program. In reality, Western concessions are strengthening Khamenei -- further reducing the possibility of change, and increasing the likelihood of outright war.

Summary: 

Increasingly, it appears to me that fraudsters, charlatans and hidden jihadis are posing themselves as liberal Muslim intellectuals in India. On the issue of Uniform Civil Code (UCC), some articles and tweets tend to reduce the UCC to a debate between uniformity and diversity, with the purpose being inevitably to do a favour to Islamic Sharia. Their running argument is also that the UCC is a blueprint for the Hindu rule, not a blueprint for the universal values of liberty and equality.

Summary: 
  • The Sheikh Eid Bin Mohammad al-Thani Charitable Association and the Saudi Muslim World League are coordinating a "long-running strategy to exert influence" by Gulf States in Germany, according to a report authored by Germany's security agencies.

  • "This is about war, about children being indoctrinated, they are only in primary school and already fantasize about how when they grow up, they want to join the jihad, kill infidels." — Wolfgang Trusheim, Frankfurt State Security office.

  • "For quite some time we've had indications and evidence that German Salafists are getting assistance, which is approved by the governments of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait, in the form of money, the sending of imams and the building of Koran schools and mosques." — Rolf Mützenich, German MP and Middle East expert.

  • Declining to assimilate in the West continues with the apparent, religiously mandated, preference to have the host countries become Islamic.

John Wesley on Islam:

Ever since the religion of Islam appeared in the world, the espousers of it … have been as wolves and tigers to all other nations, rending and tearing all that fell into their merciless paws, and grinding them with their iron teeth; that numberless cities are raised from the foundation, and only their name remaining; that many countries, which were once as the garden of God, are now a desolate wilderness; and that so many once numerous and powerful nations are vanished from the earth! Such was, and is at this day, the rage, the fury, the revenge, of these destroyers of human kind.

— John Wesley, “The Doctrine of Original Sin, Works” (1841), ix 205

Putting an end to the menace of illegal 'sharia courts' functioning from various mosques across Tamil Nadu, the Madras high court on Monday said authorities must stop the activities within a month. "If a place of worship - whether it be temple, mosque or church - is used for purposes other than prayers, and more specifically to create extra-constitutional forums, certainly the authorities are duty-bound to take action against them"

Summary: 

The Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) has issued a religious decree (fatwa) prohibiting the use of Christmas-themed attire or accessories that recall a tradition foreign to Islam. The fatwa 56/2016 harshly criticized the Christmas atmosphere invading public areas of the country, calling it “a foreign culture with which we must not mingle.”

Summary: 

If you have read Islam’s genocidal slavery:  religiously ordained,   Mohammad’s example Part A,   then you know that Islam’s prophet Mohammad was a slave-trader who killed the men and took the women and children of conquered tribes into slavery.   Mohammad and his men enjoyed the females taken or given as slaves.   Mohammad displayed sadism and gross inhumanity to captured people, including the females raped on some occasions in front of their families or husbands and on others, raped after their tribe had been destroyed and prior to selling them in slave markets.

No-one dares mention Mohammad’s substantial slave trading.   Instead much is made of the fact that he released Zaid (Zayd), slave of his wealthy, powerful 1st wife Khadija, whom he married well before he became allah’s prophet.  Zaid was released BEFORE Mohammad became allah’s prophet because releasing slaves was common in the pre-Islamic era (Sirat Rasul’allah P 714, note 151).   Much is also made of Mohammad’s  ‘manumission’  of  the two beautiful young females Safiya and Juwayria in place of a  mahr or dowry.  Instead of the freedom they requested, they were married to Mohammad  who had enslaved them and destroyed their tribes in the first place!   They were only released as sex-slaves/wives for him!

Summary: 

We all know about those nasty Europeans – Portuguese/Spanish / ‘Americans’ and their purchase of  slaves between the  (15th-19th century)  but how many know of  Islam’s far longer and still going slave trade from Africa (eg East, West Africa), central and Eastern Europe, Turkey/central Asia, and China, India, and south east Asia.  The Islamic slave trade was/is vast and is a significant feature of Islamic ‘civilization.’

After slavery became unacceptable in the West slaves continued to flow in the Islamic world.  In 2003, Al Fawzan, a member of the Senior Council of Clerics, Saudi Arabia’s highest religious body and a member of the Council of Religious Edicts and Research, the Imam of Prince Mitaeb Mosque in Riyadh and a professor at Imam Mohamed Bin Saud Islamic University, stated that   
 

“slavery is part of  jihad  and jihad will remain as long as there is Islam.” 

He claims that those who say Islam is against slavery are ignorant,... infidels.  (source)

Summary: 

Africa has been decimated; it’s social fabric, people and cultures destroyed.   The barbarity of Islam has impacted severely on many, inhibiting development, equality, freedom and tolerance.   Islamic slavery was so integrated into African society that many struggle with freedom –many remain enslaved even today.
Jihad slavery, allowed under sharia is an effective weapon of Islamization.

Using the information available on the slave trade, and the survival rate of those in transit to slave markets, estimates suggest 140 million to possibly 180 million black Africans were directly affected  (Scourge 2004)  Add to that those slaughtered in battles to obtain slaves or perishing later as a result of the destruction of the tribe, food or shelter. 

Europe became involved in the slave trade from 1519-1815 –ie Portugese, Dutch, French often selling slaves on to the Spanish.   Briton became involved in the slave trade in the 17th century but outlawed the slave trade in 1807.   The International Treaty of Europe, signed by all the European powers in 1815, included abolition of the slave trade.   Punishments in Briton for involvement in the slave trade moved from 14 years hard labour in 1810 to death in 1825 (Khan 2009, p 324).  A Parliamentary decree in 1833 set ALL slaves in the British Empire free. This was followed by France in 1848, then the Dutch and the new United States in 1865.

Summary: 

   However, at least 28 million Africans were enslaved in the Muslim Middle East.  Since at least 80% of those captured by Muslim slave traders were calculated to have died before reaching the slave markets, it is believed that the death toll from 1400 years of Muslim slave raids into Africa could have been over 112 million.  When added to the number of those sold in the slave markets, the total number of African victims of the Trans Saharan and East African slave trade could be significantly higher than 140 million people.

According to one report, 7,000 English people were abducted between 1622 to 1644, many of them ship crews and passengers.  But the Corsairs also landed on unguarded beaches, often at night, to snatch the unwary.  Almost all the inhabitants of the village of Baltimore, in Ireland, were captured in 1631, and there were other raids in Devon and Cornwall.

.....

While Christian Reformers spearheaded the anti-slavery abolitionist movements in Europe and North America, and Great Britain mobilised her Navy, throughout most of the 19th Century, to intercept slave ships and set the captives free, there was no opposition whatsoever to slavery within the Muslim world.
