  • Nigerian security thwarts Boko Haram plan to target US, UK embassies

    04/12/2017 1:38:34 PM PDT · by csvset · 1 replies
    Nigeria's security services said Wednesday that they had thwarted a plan by Boko Haram militants to attack the British and US embassies in the capital Abuja. A statement from the Department of State Services said that it broke up a cell late last month that had "perfected plans to attack" the embassies along with "other Western interests" in Nigeria's capital. The statement said five suspects who had been based in Benue State and the Federal Capital Territory were arrested. The US State Department issued an updated travel warning for Nigeria on April 5, warning that Boko Haram had targeted government...

    The EWTN-carried tv show Where God Weeps, which gives voice to the needs of the desperately poor, is a program not to miss. (If you don't watch it live, you will lose access to important information.) Now Bishop Stephen Mamza of the Diocese of Yola, Nigeria is speaking about how deadly Boko Haram attacks in the northern half of the country are devastating both Muslims and Christians. The Bishop's advice to members of his flock who lack minimal basic security is, "If you can find a safer place to live, move there". All Christians in the Bishop's own home town...

    Readers' Forum In his Inaugural Address on Jan. 20, 2017, President Trump said: "We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones and unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate from the face of the Earth." Then, on Jan. 28, President Trump issued a National Security Presidential Memorandum, directing the Secretary of Defense, and other officials in his administration, to develop, within 30 days, a comprehensive strategy and plans to defeat ISIS. Relevant in this context, is the following new book published in December 2016: "The Muhammad Code: How a Desert Prophet Brought You ISIS,...
  • Muslim council of Sweden behind proposed ban on EU lobster imports

    mainestategop ^ | Brian ball
    For the past year as some of you know, Sweden has called for a ban on lobster imports from the United States. Without a shred of proof, they claim that American raised lobster threaten their native lobster in its own habitat. Only two forces seem to be fighting this unjustified and uncalled for ban, Nova Scotia and New England Fisherman, particularly those from my home state of Maine. The ban proposal has already cleared its first hurdles despite new data by European scientists that show that American imports have nothing to do with the increase of North American lobsters in...

    Leaflets have reportedly been distributed in Manchester calling for a public ban on dogs, in order to keep the area pure for Muslims. But while some have claimed the leaflets are a hoax designed to stir up tensions, others are convinced the leaflets are being created by fundamentalist Muslims. Residents in Manchester have taken to social media to report that they have received leaflets through their letterboxes calling on them to “have respect for us and our children” by not taking dogs out in public. “This area is home to a large Muslim community,” the leaflet advises, before explaining that...

    Islamic State and “Sharia Police” stickers have been seen on vehicles in Hamburg, and some fear that extremists may try and harass residents. However, police and security services have denied these reports. At least one witness has came forward claiming that she has seen Islamic State logos and sharia police slogans on a car in Hamburg. According to the woman, she saw a car at a traffic light populated by three women wearing the Islamic full-face veil, the hood of the car was described as having a large logo on it with a blue border which read: “Sharia Police”.

  • Halal vs Kosher (differences and similarities between Islamic and Jewish dietary laws)

    11/18/2015 1:38:29 PM PST · by EveningStar · 33 replies
    Halal and Kosher are terms often heard in the context of meat and dairy, and although it's common knowledge that the terms refer to guidelines on what can be consumed and what cannot, few know what either really means, let alone how they differ. "Is this kosher?" has become a common expression that has transcended the context of religion and food to the point that it simply means "Is this acceptable?" in a colloquial sense. Halal and Kosher refer to what's permitted by Islamic and Jewish religious laws respectively. Halal is an Islamic term that means lawful or permitted. Although...

    Kochi - In Kerala, where 50 per cent of the seats and positions in local self-Government institutions are reserved for women and where hundreds of Muslim women are contesting in the current civic poll, a prominent Sunni scholar-orator has pushed Muslim outfits into confusion by issuing a 'reprimand' that women's entry into politics and election battles is "Haram before Allah" according to Islam. The 'reprimand' has caused a huge headache for outfits like the Muslim League, second biggest constituent of the Congress-led ruling UDF for which Sunni Muslims are a major vote-bank. But the speech of the scholar of Samastha,...

    Obama did everything he could to undermine Nigeria's Christian president Jonathan Goodluck in his fight against the Islamic terrorists of Boko Haram. The administration kicked and screamed against even naming Boko Haram a terrorist organization. Every offer of aid was undermined with more claims that Nigeria was violating Muslim civil rights. Finally Obama got what he wanted. Nigeria's former Muslim dictator was "elected" and began promptly Islamizing key portions of the military. Then he came to Washington D.C. for a victory lap. Obama on Monday offered strong support for Nigeria's new president, Muhammadu Buhari, saying he had a "clear...

    Muslim children as young as five have become so indoctrinated by Islamist propaganda they believe Christmas is sinful, Britain’s most senior Muslim police officer warned yesterday. Scotland Yard commander Mak Chishty said children had voiced opposition to marking the festive holiday—branding it “haram”, which means forbidden by their god Allah. He said that parents need to address “all the ugly bit of the problem”, and ask how children had come to that view. Mr. Chishty also warned of a need for parents to spot early signs of radicalization, which could include their sons and daughters refusing to shop in certain...

     In the summer of 1994, President Bill Clinton had the unfortunate experience of trying to manipulate Pope John-Paul, who had worked as a dynamiter in a Nazi stone quarry. Pope tells President, "you can't kill babies". President smiles blandly—for a minute, presidential aide comes up behind him to distract him with some "important presidential business", President gets a grimace of anger after one minute, his ears start turning red.  President Hillary, you'd better hope that Bishop Emmanuel Badejo doesn't become Pope after Francis.   He deals with Boko Haram—you know, the people you won't help him with unless Nigeria accepts abortion and...
