    American Thinker ^ | 01/17/2020 | Raymond Ibrahim
    In his recent defense of the Islamic doctrine of taqiyya (dismantled here), Usama Hasan of the UK think tank Quilliam made the following admission: It is true that hardened islamist terrorists, such as the Al-Qaeda & ISIS supporter Usman Khan who murdered two people at Fishmongers’ Hall [after pretending to have been “rehabilitated”], do misuse the principle of taqiyyah in order to further their cause. However, the charge that all Muslims are generally religiously obligated to lie, and do so routinely, is both dangerous and untrue. However true this may be, it is also irrelevant.  After all, how is...
  • Indian Catholics Fear Madrassa Ruling Will Affect Church Schools

    Court grants government control over appointment of teachers in minority-run schools India’s Supreme Court has allowed the government to control the appointment of teachers in educational institutions run by religious minorities, a ruling Church leaders say violates their right to manage such institutions. Ucanews.org reported that the country’s top court upheld a West Bengal state law that allowed a government commission to screen candidates to be appointed as teachers in government-funded madrassas (Muslim religious schools). “The order definitely will have a bearing in the administration of church-run education institutions, too,” said Salesian Fr Joseph Manipadam, secretary to the Indian Catholic...

    “The fastest-growing church in the world has taken root in one of the most unexpected and radicalized nations on earth,” according to “Sheep Among Wolves,” the outstanding two-hour documentary about the revival that has taken place inside Iran. “The Iranian awakening is a rapidly reproducing discipleship movement that owns no property or buildings, has no central leadership, and is predominantly led by women.” The documentary was produced by Frontier Alliance International (FAI), which supports disciple-making teams targeting the “unreached” and “unengaged” within the 10/40 Window. “What if I told you Islam is dead?” one unidentified Iranian church leader says on...

    (CNSNews.com) - Rep. Ilhan Omar (D.-Minn.) gave a speech on the House floor citing what she called the “hypocrisy” of “religious fundamentalists,” who are seeking to prohibit or restrict abortion. “Religious fundamentalists are currently trying to manipulate the State laws in order to impose their beliefs on an entire society, all with complete disregard for voices and the rights of American women,” she said in this speech that was delivered on May 22. “This isn't about religious morality or conviction,” she said, “because we have seen time and time again those who talk about their faith and want to push...

    For the first time ever, a blood red flag is being flown over the famous Jamkaran Mosque in the Iranian "holy city" of Qom. And as I will explain below, the fact that this mosque is directly associated with the Mahdi makes this symbolic gesture doubly significant. The hoisting of this flag was broadcast on Iranian state television, and it was obviously intended to send a message to Shiites all over the globe. So precisely what was that message? Well, we are being told that according to Shiite tradition a red flag represents both "blood spilled unjustly" and a call...

    The Armenian community in Turkey appreciates reforms as it is going through one of the most comfortable periods in the history of the republic, while the diaspora exploits the idea of tragedy, said Sahak MaĹźalyan, who recently became the 85th Armenian patriarch. "All minorities in Turkey agree on the fact that we are experiencing the most comfortable era during the Justice and Development Party (AK Party) administration," MaĹźalyan told AkĹźam daily, adding that the amendments made in the Foundations Law in 2008 were especially important in this regard. MaĹźalyan noted that the concept of minorities has been used to interfere...

    A training programme for imams and others seeking instruction in the Islamic faith is to begin next year at KU Leuven. The aim of the programme, which is the first of its kind in Belgium, is to persuade people with an Islamic vocation to study at home rather than abroad. “We are building a Belgian training programme for ministers in the Islamic faith in order to reduce foreign influence,” said Koen Geens, the federal justice minister. “It’s important that we know what they are studying.” As well as imams, the programme is aimed at people preparing for other roles in...

    'The only difference between the government and Boko Haram is Boko Haram is holding a bomb,' Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah claimed The beheading of 10 Christians by Islamist militants in Nigeria has sparked a condemnation by a bishop who accuses the government of using different methods to achieve the same goal of Islamic dominance. In the wake of the Christmas Day attack by Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) and an attack by Boko Haram on Christmas Eve, Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah of Sokoto told Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need of his disgust with the authorities.

    Shops in a Kurdish region of northern Iraq have been selling shoes with a Christian cross embossed on the sole, allowing wearers to “trample the cross,” according to the Assyrian International News Agency (AINA). Drawing on a story recently published on the Polish website Szlomo, AINA reports that Kurdish authorities have allowed the “anti-Christian shoes” to be sold in north Iraq, including a shopping center in Erbil called Mega Mall where the footwear was on display in store windows prior to Christmas. The footwear is reportedly produced by a Turkish company called FLO, located in Gaziantep, in southeastern Turkey. The...

    It took Muslims in England over 30 years to establish a foothold in that nation, and with relentless and dogged determination they have slowly come to power. Just ask the Muslim mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, he will be happy to tell you how Islamists came to power in the land that gave the world the King James Bible. Or you could ask me, I will be happy to tell you as well. It’s called Biological Jihad, and it is exactly what it sounds like. Most free nations have a fatal flaw as far as being taken over goes, they...

    Leaders Condemn Muslim Slaughter of 11 Christians Video of murders posted day after Christmas ABUJA, Nigeria (ChurchMilitant.com) - Eleven Nigerian men are being heralded as martyrs after Islamic militants took them hostage and killed them. Video of the men's murder was posted online Dec. 26. Lined up and blindfolded, one man was shot and killed while the other 10 were beheaded. The 11 men were taken hostage by Islamic terrorists in November, according to the Associated Press. Cardinal Robert Sarah, prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship, called the 11 victims "martyrs" and accusing the killers of being "mad Islamists."  "In Nigeria, the murder...

    Just a day after the second World Conference on Persecuted Christians ended this November in Budapest, Hungary, a “reformed” jihadi terrorist stabbed two innocent people to death in London, before being shot by police. The inability of the liberal secularists, who are at the center of most Western governmental policies and who control most of the information the public receives via the media and academia, to comprehend the motivation for such an attack is the reason why they will only increase. The London Islamist attack, one of many over the last decade in Europe, forced many to ask why certain...

    Francis dismisses need for Catholic conversion, makes comparison to Crusades ROME (ChurchMilitant.com) - A distinguished authority on Islamic jihad has excoriated Pope Francis for equating the evangelization of Jews and Muslims with the Crusades. "The Pope is purveying historical fiction," Dr. Robert Spencer, author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam and the Crusades, told Church Militant. "The Crusades were not an exercise in forced conversion. In reality, they were a small-scale defensive response after 450 years of Islamic jihad aggression had conquered over half of Christendom, and an attempt to protect Christian pilgrims in the Holy Land," Spencer asserted....
