    The Strasbourg Attack and Islam Concealed The attack in Strasbourg, Islam and the "problems" of the media telling the truth. By Andreas Becker and Martha Burger The attack in Strasbourg, Islamic terrorism and the media with the self-imposed muzzle. In Strasbourg, yesterday in an attack on a Christmas market, three people were killed and many injured. Despite being obliged to provide information, the "leading media" are having a hard time telling the truth to their audience. Rita Katz, the founder and operator of Site, a private documentation center for monitoring the activities of the Islamic State (IS), reported with evidence...

    FORT WORTH, Texas (RNS) — Lisa Grimaldi Abdulkareem describes herself as a conservative Republican who believes in freedom and prosperity. “Less bureaucracy, lower taxes and stronger national security — it is simple for me,” said Abdulkareem, the Tarrant County GOP’s vice chair for precinct recruitment and volunteers. However, some Republican activists in the Lone Star State’s most conservative urban county want Abdulkareem removed from the party’s leadership. The reason: She’s married to a Muslim. Abdulkareem, a nondenominational Christian, has been caught up in a political civil war that has raged in the Tarrant County GOP for months, pitting Republicans who...

    VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - The first visit by a pope to the Arabian peninsula will take place in February when Francis travels to Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, the Vatican said on Thursday. The Feb. 3-5 trip, Francis' latest to a predominantly Muslim nation, will be centered around the theme of inter-religious peace. The Vatican said the pope had accepted an invitation from Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, and the tiny Catholic community there. He will attend an inter-faith meeting. In a statement, Bishop Paul Hinder, head of the Roman Catholic Arabian Vicariate...

    The prime minister of Pakistan, a tenuous U.S. ally, contends Jesus was not a historical figure, reports Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin. The Middle East Media Research Institute reported Prime Minister Imran Kahn made the assertion in a speech on the day marked as the birthday of Muhammad. Khan also lobbied for a worldwide law that would protect Islam from any criticism. The prime minister said there is little mention of prophets of Allah other than Muhammad, and there is “no mention of Jesus in history.” “Moses is mentioned, but there is no mention of Jesus in history,” he said. “But...

    MONTREAL — Hate crimes against Jews in Canada have spiked 60 percent since last year, making them the most targeted minority group in the country for the second straight year. Statistics Canada reported Thursday that the number of incidents reported to police rose to 360 in 2017 from 221 in 2016. The increase was attributed to nonviolent “mischief” hate crimes.

    “Happy Birthday, Muhammad,” the New York Times proclaimed happily last Tuesday in a propaganda piece by Haroon Moghul, the author of a book confidently entitled How to Be a Muslim. I’d say it was a new low for the Times if the Gray Lady didn’t keep stooping lower every day. Moghul details how he rediscovered Muhammad during a time of doubt, marveling “that he buried the least loved of his fellow Arabs with his own hands. That he put two of his fingers together and promised that he and the orphan would be that close in the life to come....

    A former Nigerian imam-turned-pastor who says Islam’s holy book helped confirm to him that Jesus Christ is the son of God, has detailed the persecution his family has endured because of their Christian faith. The pastor, who for security purposes will be referred to as “John,” recently spoke with The Christian Post for an hourlong interview about his family’s ordeal in which one of their son's was murdered after they were forced into hiding in different states across Nigeria before traveling to the United States this year to seek asylum. John was born to a Hausa Fulani family in the...

    A chapel in Linz, Austria, is set to blast out the Muslim call to prayer each day throughout the Christmas period as part of an “art installation” aimed at emphasising “that Islam is a religion of peace.” At certain times each day between December 2nd and 23rd, people strolling through the centre of Linz will be treated to “a special kind of audiovisual experience,” when recordings of muezzin calls, which were taped in Algeria, Mozambique, Istanbul, and Singapore, are played from the chapel of the Upper Austrian Cultural Quarter’s Ursuline Church. The organisers behind ‘ADHINA’ say the installation “succeeds in...

    RISU Religion ^ | 17th December 2010
    During his conversation with the Russian people today, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin cited with approval the conclusion of “certain theoreticians who say that Orthodox Christianity is much closer to Islam than Catholicism is,” something that he suggests should be the basis for restoring national concord. In his responses to questions, Putin stressed that “Caucasians must not be afraid to live in Moscow or Russians to live in the North Caucasus.” Instead, he continued, “all citizens of Russia of whatever faith or nationality must recognize that we have a single common Motherland." The simplification of Huntington’s ideas in the intervening years...

    At least one priest was among those killed At least 42 people have died in an attack Thursday on the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart in Alindao, in the Central African Republic, according to local reports. At least one priest was among those killed in the Nov. 15 attack. Some unofficial estimates have said the death toll could reach as high as 100. Many of the people killed were refugees sheltering at the Church. The CAR has suffered violence since December 2012, when several bands of mainly Muslim rebel groups formed an alliance, taking the name Seleka, and seized power....

    A little homework into the Southern Poverty Law Center clarified its true mission: Make money while working hand in glove with the mainstream media to attack America’s foundation using a Communist/Marxist agenda. SPLC’s founder is lawyer Morris Dees who in 1961 earned money by doing legal work for the Ku Klux Klan. That information alone brings enough red flags to expose SPLC as an illegitimate and anti-American organization. Dees founded SPLC in 1971 after the civil rights battle had been won and there was no more money left in representing groups like the KKK. He then jumped to the other...

    I just want to say that David Wood-and the handful of Christians in attendance-exhibited the attributes that one would expect from people who were saved from death by Jesus Christ and the work of the Holy Spirit. While his opponent, and almost all of the Muslims in attendance-with the exception of the evening's host, who deserves to be commended for his efforts to impose civility-exhibited all of the attributes of those who are profoundly lost and who venerate a man who was imbued with wickedness, and served as the literal translator of the Devil. Even so, I hope that some...
  • Belgian Christmas Market is Named Winter Market, Because it ‘Could Offend Other Beliefs’

    Organisers of the Christmas Market in the Belgian city of Brugge changed its name to Winter Market. The decision was made to not ‘offend other beliefs’, Belgian newspaper HLN reports. The newspaper says that the Christmas lights on the market will be replaced by neutral winter lights. People and politicians are not amused about the changes. Pol Van Den Driessche, a member of local opposition party N-VA, calls the decision ‘incomprehensible and unbelievable’. “So we are not allowed to speak about a Christmas Market, but only of a Winter Market. This is not only a completely insane decision, it also...

    Blog claims sermon by imam at Oxford church contrary to ‘sacred act of divine worship’ in keeping with C of E ritesAn invitation to a distinguished Muslim scholar to preach at a eucharist service in an Oxford church on Sunday has triggered complaints from traditionalists. Monawar Hussain, who was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s birthday honours last year for services to interfaith relations and the community, will deliver a sermon at the University Church of St Mary the Virgin, following a request from Oxford University’s vice-chancellor, Louise Richardson. The move has been denounced by Archbishop Cranmer, a conservative Anglican...

    "Once upon a time in a primitive land of polytheist idolaters far, far away, an egomaniac zealot with high ambitions hit on a bright idea. On learning of the ancient Jewish prophecy of a Messiah, and the newish Christian communities’ worship of Jesus as the “Chosen One”, he decided to nominate himself as the latest in the line – the Messenger of Allah and the Seal of the Prophets. If the Angel Gabriel could give the name ‘Jesus’ to Mary, why couldn’t Gabriel be recruited to authenticate Muhammad’s pronouncements? The polytheists who worshipped 360 idols in the Ka’aba of Mecca...
