    Associated Press ^ | Jul. 20, 2015 10:03 PM EDT | Jonathan J. Cooper
    U.S. authorities are seeking to revoke the citizenship of an Oregon imam who they say tried to conceal past associations with radical Islamic groups. Mohamed Sheikh Abdirahman Kariye raised money, recruited fighters and provided training for insurgent groups battling Soviet forces in Afghanistan in the 1980s, the U.S. Department of Justice says in a complaint filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Portland. Kariye was one of more than a dozen people who filed a lawsuit challenging the no-fly list, winning last year a court order saying the government must provide information about why people are on the list.

    World Net Daily ^ | 5/7/2015 | CHERYL CHUMLEY
    Sparks flew on a recent Fox News segment when host Sean Hannity put it bluntly to radical Muslim cleric Anjem Choudary – do you think Pam Geller should die? – and his response was pretty much, yes. Geller, who hosted the “Draw Muhammad” event in Garland, Texas, has subsequently been placed on a hit list by Islamist terrorists, as reported by WND. Specifically, ISIS has called for the “slaughter” of Geller, along with those who support her. Hannity asked Choudary for his response to the cartoon drawing event, and if he thought Geller should die. “We’re not talking about Mickey...

    As you know by now, last weekend Pamela Geller held a Mohammed Art Exhibit in Texas. That event was attacked by two jihadists wearing body armor and carrying semi-automatic weapons. Luckily, they were shot immediately upon arrival by a police officer with his handgun. Since the event ISIS has issued a fatwa, otherwise known as a death sentence, on Pam Geller's head. Last night on Hannity radical Imam Anjem Choudary, who represents a significant portion of British Muslims, justified the death sentence. "You're talking about people who deliberately had a competition to insult the messenger Muhammed, peace be upon him...

    Mohammed Abdullah Saleem, who faces new criminal charges of sexual assault, tried to ban Zainab Khan from burying her father. Now, she tells her courageous story of standing up to one of Chicago’s most powerful imams. The decision by courageous women in Kabul, Afghanistan, to defy the orders of mullahs and carry the coffin of a young woman, Farkhunda—slain for the false accusation of burning the Quran—took me to a dramatic moment last spring when I faced off against an imam, not in some faraway city in our Muslim world, but in our own backyard, right here in the...

    The White House has finally divulged the names of American Muslim leaders who met with President Obama this week, including Imam Mohamed Magid, who has advised the administration on formulating responses to incidents that Islamists consider offensive. After stonewalling journalists for two days about the names of the participants at the meeting Wednesday, the White House quietly attached the list of attendees to the end of its daily press briefing transcript Thursday evening. The guest list identified Imam Magid as a representative of the Adams Center, a large mosque in Sterling, Virginia. He has also served as president of the...

We’ll be hearing it more often as it begins to drown out the peals of church bells, now that Barack Hussein Obama came out as Imam Obama at Thursday’ National Prayer Breakfast.

    Fools. Remember when al Qaeda and ISIS (who have now merged) said they would see their evil, black flag over the White House? Might as well be drifting in the breeze there – this is a major step towards it. You see, to subjugate Christianity to Islam, negates it in the Islamist’s eyes and this is what has happened when you let the Muslim Brotherhood hold their prayers in a Christian cathedral. It also claims DC as a conquest for Islam. So in fact… just as Obama claimed, they now see the US as a Muslim nation. From Western Journalism:...

Imam Hamad Ahmad Chebli of the Islamic Society of New Jersey was invited by Democrat Rep. Rush Holt (NJ).

    This is the second Islamic spokesman to speak out in favor of sex slavery in recent days. And that should come as no surprise: taking women captive and enslaving them as concubines is sanctioned by the Qur'an: "And all married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess. It is a decree of Allah for you." -- Qur'an 4:24 "Video: Shaykh al-Huwayni: 'When I want a sex slave, I just go to the market and choose the woman I like and purchase her,'" from Translating Jihad, June 11: After Egyptian Shaykh Abu-Ishaq al-Huwayni's controversial comments...

    Almost 13,000 Christian clergy have done it. Nearly 500 Jewish rabbis have too. Now, Islamic teachers, or imams, have begun signing an open letter declaring that there is no clash between their religious faith and evolution. The Imam Letter, launched this week in the US, is the latest challenge to fundamentalists of the three Abrahamic religions who reject evolution in favour of creationism. The Clergy Letter was launched in 2006 and now has 12,725 signatures, followed three years ago by the Rabbi Letter, which has 476 signatures. Like its predecessors, the Imam Letter explains why it's OK for believers to...

    Just like the imam guilty of aiding the jihadis plotting to blow up the New York City Subway system on the anniversary of September 11th, here we have another pious man of the quran convicted in the Kennedy Airport terror plot, "ONE OF THE MOST CHILLING PLOTS IMAGINABLE." "He had a vision that would make the WTC attack seem small." Every act of jihad, occurring daily throughout the world, has the imprimatur of a Muslim cleric. The problem is Islam. Imam from Trinidad convicted of planning attack on JFK airport New York (CNN) -- Trinidad native Kareem Ibrahim was convicted...

    SYDNEY, Australia -- A radical Muslim cleric who described Jews as “pigs” and is accused of inciting terrorism has returned to Australia to preach after years in exile. Sheik Feiz Mohammed, a Sydney native, was told in 2007 by then-Prime Minister Kevin Rudd that he was “not welcome here” after an inflammatory DVD series emerged in which he is quoted saying that “We want to have children and offer them as soldiers defending Islam. Teach them this: There is nothing more beloved to me than wanting to die as a mujahid [holy warrior].” Media reports this week said Mohammed was...

    Muenster, Germany - An Egyptian-born imam lost a court fight Wednesday to stave off his expulsion from Germany after he was accused of preaching hatred towards Christians and Jews. The superior administrative tribunal in Muenster, northern Germany, agreed to a federal government demand to strip his political asylum. A lower tribunal must now review whether to order his actual deportation to Egypt. His lawyer said he would appeal, adding, 'This may take years.' Germany ordered him stripped of asylum rights in 2006 but the Muslim preacher fought the order in the courts. He has filed papers insisting that he ceased...

    Florida university lets imam who was involved with ’93 WTC bombing speak. A radical Muslim imam who was named as an unindicted coconspirator in the 1993 WTC bombing spoke last night at the University of Central Florida, a guest of the Muslim Student Association’s Islam Awareness Month celebrations. Despite complaints all week long, UCF did not ban the terror-supporting imam from speaking and instead bowed down to the pressure from its Muslim Student Association and its schedule of events for this month. Imam Siraj Wahhaj is an African-American convert to Islam, who has been criticized repeatedly for being a hatemonger...

    Yes No Undecided (Please leave a comment) Birthers could decide who wins the GOP presidential primary. According to a Public Policy poll, a majority of national GOP primary voters believe that President Barack Obama was not born in the U.S. This segment of Republican likely voters also overwhelmingly, at 83 percent, support Sarah Palin for president. "Any thought that the birther theory has been put to rest can be thrown out the window with this poll," said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. "That view is still widely held in Republican circles." Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee still heads...

    Across the Back Fence ^ | 02/10/2011 | Todd Fitchette
    Political correctness has placed us on a dangerous slippery slope as Islam becomes the religion du jour in America. Already children in public schools are being taught the religious Pillars of Islam and are given assignments to test their sensitivity to the so-called religion of peace. Yet because of the twisted opinions of a few, what people like to trumpet as the “separation of church and state” prohibits teaching the Beatitudes and 10 Commandments in those same schools. Both are religions — Islam and Christianity — yet one is prohibited, even though our nation was founded on it and most...

    Hannity calls British imam a sick, miserable and evil SOB—on the air. On last night’s Hannity, Sean got himself into a regular old shootout with a radical British imam who believes in Sharia Law, wants the United Kingdom to become subjected to Sharia Law, and regularly praises Osama bin Laden. In light of the possibility of the Muslim Brotherhood taking over in Egypt, having a radical Muslim imam on for a shootout was more than appropriate. The heated shootout took up two segments on the Hannity show, and for those disappointed, at times, in Sean’s debating prowess, he redeemed himself...
