    Gaza - The U.N. Relief and Works Agency, the main body providing aid to millions of Palestinian refugees and their descendants across the Middle East, made an urgent appeal for international support Wednesday, one day after the State Department announced it will withhold more than half its annual funding. “After decades of generous support, dramatic reduction of US funding to UNRWA results in most critical financial situation in history of Agency,” the agency’s commissioner general, Pierre Krähenbühl, wrote on Twitter. “I call on member states of the United Nations to take a stand & demonstrate to Palestine Refugees that their...

    Jewish Press ^ | January 16, 2018 | Zionist Organization of America
    In recent weeks three more Imams – Syrian-American Imam Abdullah Khadra in Raleigh, NC; Imam Raed Saleh Al-Rousan in Houston, TX; and Imam Aymen Elkasaby in Jersey City, NJ – preached sermons in U.S. mosques calling for murdering Jews. In addition, a fourth, Imam Ramadan Elsabagh of Garland, Texas, called for murdering Jews via Facebook. This is intolerable. Advocating genocide is an internationally recognized crime against humanity. These threats must be taken seriously and responded to with strong action. ZOA calls upon appropriate officials, including the U.S. Justice Department, government officials and Islamic organizations, to assure that these Imams...

Using the hashtags #ISIS_SurrenderOrDie, #SEAC3, #DefeatDaesh, Troxell wrote, "ISIS needs...

  • Report: Saudi Arabia Seeks Reform Towards ‘Moderate Islam’

    The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) noted on Thursday that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) is pushing a return to “the tolerant, moderate Islam that is open to the world, to all the religions and traditions of its people” as part of Saudi Arabia’s major economic reform plan. At the heart of Saudi Arabia’s recent cultural and political upheaval is an understanding that the country must become more compatible with the Western world and more hospitable to foreign investment, in order to manage the transition away from an oil-based economy with limitless deep pockets. Possibly the trickiest aspect of this...

    The German Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) has released new figures showing that around 43,000 individuals engaged in integration courses are unable to read or write at all. The 43,000 migrants were placed into special courses meant to help them learn how to both read and write but many have been totally unable to learn how to speak German in the language component of the courses, Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung reports. The number of people enrolled in the special courses is an increase of 10 per cent since the same time last year. Although class sizes are small and...

    January 9, 2018What, Indeed, Is the Quran?Rev. James V. Schall, S.J. Most people know that the Quran (Qur’an, Koran) is the holy book of the Muslim religion, hence of about a fifth of the world’s population. But knowing this much, we still must grasp the peculiar nature of this famous book, if, indeed, because of its origins, it can be called precisely a “book.” If we ask just when this book was written, or even, who exactly wrote it, we soon run into difficult issues.First, we have to ask: “What do Muslims think the book is?” Then we have to...

  • Outrage in Turkey After State Agency Says Girls Can Marry From Age Nine

    ANKARA, Turkey (AFP) — Turkey’s religious affairs state agency came under heavy criticism on Thursday from the main opposition party after it said girls as young as nine could marry under Islamic law. The Diyanet religious affairs directorate said on Tuesday the minimum age for girls to marry was nine, while for boys it was 12, according to Turkish media including the Hurriyet daily quoting the agency’s official website. The post, which took the form of an explanatory statement on Islamic law, has since been taken down, after a backlash from the opposition and women’s rights groups. The head of...
  • The weapon behind attack on the Russian airbase in Syria identified.

    01/04/2018 11:15:58 PM PST · by NorseViking · 6 replies
    The Russian airbase in Syrian Khmeimim was fired upon with the 82-millimeter automatic mortar Vasilek. About this, referring to the opinion of military experts, writes "Bulletin of Mordovia". Among its advantages is a light weight (just over 630 kilograms), which allows placing the gun, for example, in a camper van and high rate of fire (up to 120 rounds per minute). The edition specifies, that "Vasilek" is charged by cassettes and fire in bursts. One detonated ammunition can disintegrate into 600 fragments. "It should be noted that mines of a caliber of 82 millimeters are practically impossible to intercept by...

    The extremist Islamic State group’s branch in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula has taken a simmering dispute with the Palestinian Hamas group based in nearby Gaza to new levels, releasing a 22-minute video in which it calls on its followers to attack the group and shows the execution of a man it said was a collaborator. Analysts say the escalation has the potential to destabilize an already fragile security situation in Gaza, the Palestinian enclave that Hamas has controlled for the past decade.

    Car burnings have become a tradition across France over New Year’s with the latest figures showing an increase in arson, but some experts claim the motive behind the attacks is simple boredom. Approximately 1,031 vehicles were set on fire on the night of December 31st and the early hours of the morning of January 1st, up from last year’s 935. The arson attacks have remained a constant feature over New Year’s, Bastille Day celebrations in the summer, and during incidents of civil unrest. Many have attempted to try and make sense of why the arson attacks keep occurring year after...

    Reprinted from the Gatestone Institute.Raymond Ibrahim is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center. Luc Ravel, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Strasbourg “went against the grain of Church leaders in France who have largely remained politically correct,” says a report, because he criticized “the demographic shift in France, saying Muslims are having far more children than native French and slammed the widespread ‘promotion’ of abortion.”  He said, “Muslim believers know very well that their birthrate is such that today, they call it … the Great Replacement, they tell you in a very calm, very positive way that, ‘one...

    A skeletal portrait of the Sterling, Va., man federal authorities have accused of obstructing a terrorism investigation began to come into focus on Monday — that of a directionless youth who converted to Islam at the end of high school, married a significantly older Muslim woman, had a child who died as an infant, and became increasingly religious until an arrest Friday that allegedly included him destroying a computer thumb drive that authorities suspect may have contained evidence of terrorism-related activity. In the months before that arrest, court filings allege, Sean Andrew Duncan, 21, who will appear in federal court...

    An army of security and emergency forces on the streets of France could not prevent a rise in the number of cars that were torched. Compared with last year, the number rose by 96, from 935 to 1,031 this year. The statistics from the ministry of the interior also say that more arrests were being made: from 456 to 510 this year. At least 140,000 security and emergency forces were at work during New Year’s Eve in France. One incident that particularly shocked the nation was the attempt by a group of youth to lynch two police officers in a...

    It’s true that CNN and the New York Times, among other liberal outlets, have rightly been called out for their failure to report accurately on the protests in Iran. But there’s something that not even the conservative media is telling you today, an important backstory that might be playing a role in this rising protest movement.As for the leftwing media, Caroline Glick noted in her article in the Jerusalem Post that, “Given the earth shattering potential of the protests it is extraordinary to see the liberal media in the US and Europe struggle to downplay their significance.” And here in...

    Hundreds of new protective barriers will be permanently installed in Times Square and other locations around New York in an effort to block vehicles from hitting pedestrians after deadly attacks last year on crowds. The city is spending $50 million on protective measures including the installation of 1,500 metal barriers, or bollards, in key locations around the city, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Tuesday.
