Summary: 

Minutes after our landing, a man in a white dress and a red/white headscarf run towards my father, grabbed him by his neck, pulled the golden cross he had around his neck and turned it into pieces with his own bare two hands. Me and my mother were left staring at each other in absolute shock. I couldn’t believe my eyes.

....

It was a wall built all around our community and houses, so we could be allowed to live “free”. Meaning: dress as we wanted, say what we wanted, be able to have interaction  between males and females and be able to eat during Ramadan. We was escorted to our lovely house, given a car, and been explained a few basics mainly about my mother's and mine dressing code. Basically we had to be dressed in a foul body black hijab. Period!

...

The last but not least incident I want to mention was by far the most traumatic one. Me and my mother witnessed the stoning of a woman. An incident both of us will carry with us for the rest of my lives. On that day, we had arranged to visit the place where the beheadings, the cutting off body parts and stonings used to take place. Sadly we had not been informed that on that day the stoning of a woman was taking place.

......

Why do I write all this? Because today I am sat in my room and I feel scared that I am experiencing Great Britain changing. I see the Islamic law in Britain alive. A law completely incompatible with any western values! Female genital mutilation, no freedom of speech, gang rapes by men that believe women -especially white western women- are worth nothing but rape; and of course death threats for criticizing their holy religion! I personally had threats by Muslims that suggested my rape, the bombing of my house and threats against my life (i have screenshots). I am today witnessing the British police becoming the authoritarian imams I so much used to and still hate. Tommy Robinson among the greatest victim example of the "imam style" authoritarian British Police. I am today experiencing the same feelings of fear and insecurity I had about 20 years ago, living in the heart of Islam.

Summary: 

A five-and-a-half minute clip from Al-Jazeera of an Arab-American psychologist (Wafa Sultan) delivering a devastating critique of Muslims and defense of Jews. Sounds like partisan bickering, but try to find a single comment she makes that you can disagree with. She does this within the framework of a debate with a muslim cleric, whose only argument is: "You're a heretic, so we don't have to listen to you."

I recently met a woman who works with the International Christian Consulate (ICC), an organisation founded in 2015 to provide a “physical consulate” for Christians in the Middle East.1 As well as telling me about the sexual assaults (assaults, plural) she herself had endured at the hands of migrants on the streets of Athens, she pointed me to a report that the ICC has produced detailing the truly shocking treatment Christians are subjected to by Muslims in refugee

Did these Christians draw Muhammad? Did they poke the Muslims in the eye in some way? They must have provoked them, right? If we just stay quiet, we will be okay, right?
