Summary: 

An Islamic school that hosted radical clerics and segregated teachers by gender is accused today by the Charity Commission of mismanagement and misconduct. The regulator expressed concern that the Rabia Educational Trust, which caters for 128 pupils and charges up to £2,300 a year, had failed to protect pupils from potentially harmful views. Ofsted has inspected Rabia girls’ and boys’ school in Luton four times since 2014 but it continues to fail to meet educational and management standards and remains under regulatory action by the schools inspectorate.

The first priority after every jihad terror attack: make sure that no one has any negative thoughts about Islam. It’s incredible that even the dhimmi appeaser May’s supine speech was too much for the taxpayer-funded Dutch media.

Summary: 

A growing number of radical Muslims are flocking to move from France to Britain, where generous welfare payments, lack of scrutiny from the authorities, and the ease with which families can practice strict Islam have earned the UK a reputation as a halal paradise for Salafists who are unable to secure visas for Saudi Arabia.

Summary: 

While the cause of the attack remains unclear as of now, the symbolism associated with the venue of the attack is quite telling, in the sense that it represents both the rise of Islamic radicalism in the United Kingdom and the growing fear against it.

The identity change in Muslim youth was accompanied by an alienation from Western ethos, wherein lay the appeal of a large number of Muslim clerics and philosophers who came from abroad. As of 2005, out of 2000 imams serving 1400 mosques, about 1700 had been trained overseas. Abu Hamza was one among a small number from these imams who were staunchly supportive of Islamic extremism.

Summary: 
  • At the moment, the bar for taking extremists out of circulation is set ridiculously high. People known for their own extremism that reaches pre-terrorist levels should not be walking the streets when they have expressed support for Islamic State (ISIS) or tried to head to Syria or called for the destruction of Britain and other democracies or allied themselves to people already in prison. Their demand for free speech or freedom of belief must never be elevated above the rights of citizens to live safely in their own towns and cities. It is essential for parliament to lower the bar.

  • Is this to be the political landscape for the future, where groups of people demanding death and destruction are given the freedom of the streets whilst those wishing to hold a peaceful celebration are prevented from doing so?

  • To see extremist Islam as a "perversion" of Islam misses an important point. The politically correct insistence that radical versions of Islam somehow pervert an essentially peaceful and tolerant faith forces policy-makers and legislators, church leaders, rabbis, interfaith workers and the public at large to leave to one side an important reality. Flatly, Islam in its original and classic forms has everything to do with today's radicals and the violence they commit. The Qur'an is explicit in its hatred for pagans, Jews and Christians. It calls for the fighting of holy war (jihad) to conquer the non-Muslim world, subdue it, and gradually bring it into the fold of Islam. Islam has been at war with Europe since the seventh century.

Summary: 
  • "Ramadan has been not only a month of worship and of growing close to Allah the Almighty, but also a month of action and jihad aimed at spreading this great religion... throughout [Muslim] history, Ramadan has been a month of great conquests....". — 'Ali Gum'a, then Grand mufti of Egypt, Al-Ahram in July 2012.

  • "According to Islamic practice, sacrifice during Ramadan can be considered more valuable than that made at other times, so a call to martyrdom during the month may hold a special allure to some." — Report by the U.S. State Department-led Overseas Security Advisory Council, The Independent, June 9, 2016.

  • "Jihad in the Arabic language... means: ...striving... where the cause/objective is goodness & justice...Holy war [is] not an expression in the Qur'an: War is NEVER holy." — Anna Cole, 'inclusion specialist' for the UK Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL), which represents more than 18,000 head teachers and college leaders.

In 2012, a Muslim Brotherhood member, Hussein Shehata, a lecturer at Al-Azhar University -- considered the world's leading center for Sunni Islamic learning -- wrote:

"Fasting [during Ramadan] is one of the most powerful means to educate the human spirit for jihad. Fasting involves a spiritual effort to act in a way contrary to what is accepted, and to completely abandon desires... It also schools the Muslim in patience, resilience, endurance, and sacrifice, which are all traits of the jihad fighter... Ramadan is the month of victory for those who wage jihad for Allah. Ramadan has seen the following battles, conquests, and victories: the great Battle of Badr [624 CE],... the conquest of Mecca [630 CE]... We call upon those who fast... to remember their brothers, those who wage jihad for the sake of Allah: in Palestine, against the Jews, the descendants of apes and pigs; in Iraq, against the Americans; in Bosnia-Herzegovina, against the crusader Serbians; in Chechnya, against the Russians; in Kashmir, against the idolatrous Indians... everywhere in [the lands of] the Islamic ummah [community], against those who fight the Muslims".

 

Summary: 

A school in the United Kingdom called “Darul Uloom Islamic High School” is pumping their “students” full of vile, evil, despicable ideas and indoctrinating them with bigoted views against other religions and nonbelievers, as well as other Muslims.

Summary: 

Research and interviews by the FT into the madrassa phenomenon across south Asia show that “Deobandi” has become shorthand for a Sunni Muslim extremist, at least among some commentators. The ubiquitous Deobandi madrassas spawned across Asia since the school’s foundation in 1866 were once seen by Muslims as “forts of Islam” amid the westernisation of British India. More recently, however, they have been described as dens of jihadism and violence. Atal Bihari Vajpayee, then Indian prime minister and a leader of the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata party, called religious schools in neighbouring Pakistan “factories of terror” after an Islamist attack on the Indian parliament took the two countries to the brink of war in 2001.

Summary: 

“Saracen 786” asks a number of questions in this video about whether various Islamic teachings and acts of Muhammad are really moral and ethical. He repeatedly asks Muslim scholars how they would explain these aspects of Islam. If any respond, they will say that Allah decides what is moral and ethical, and thus these aspects of Islam cannot be questioned, but are simply to be accepted. That just leads to the further question of why Allah would command what are clearly hateful and immoral acts.

Summary: 

Those flagged up are referred to Channel, part of the government’s Prevent strategy to combat extremism, and are offered voluntary support to turn away from embracing radicalised agendas.

Although the strategy is designed to tackle all forms of extremism, including far-right ideologies as well as Islamist terror, 70 per cent of those referred were suspected of being drawn into Islamist movements, whereas just 15 per cent were linked to the far right.

Summary: 

The Muslim Brotherhood’s objective is to replace secular democratic government with an Islamic caliphate under sharia law

Summary: 

The apologists for Islam like to tell us that it is just a "tiny" minority of Muslims who are "extremist". Just how tiny is this minority of jihadists?
