  • Report: Detroit Muslim FGM-Doctor Mutilated Girls Far Worse Than She Admits

    The arrests of Dr. Nagarwala and two others last week represent the first federal female genital mutilation (FGM) investigation in United States history. FGM is common in the Islamic world, particularly in Africa. According to UNICEF, 98 percent of Somali girls and 87 percent of Egyptians have endured the procedure. FGM involves removing varying amounts of the victim’s — usually a pre-pubescent girl — clitoris, labia majoria, and labia minora. In its most extreme form, the victim is “infibulated,” having virtually all her external genitalia removed and being sewn up, leaving her with only a tiny hole from which to...
  • Austrian president: We might have to fight Islamophobia by asking all women to wear headscarves

    Via Breitbart, at last a clear answer to the question, “Who’s assimilating whom?”Context is important, though. Alexander van der Bellen is a leftist (of course) but his position is largely ceremonial and the country’s policy on head coverings is more restrictive than you might think from listening to him. Austria banned full-face coverings like the burqa and niqab in January; the hijab, which covers the hair and neck, is still allowed among civilians but has also been banned among civil servants like cops, judges, prosecutors, etc. Even van der Bellen reportedly supports a ban on religious dress among judges...

    Austria’s far-left president, Alexander Van der Bellen, has suggested that one day all women must wear headscarves to fight Islamophobia. During a talk to students, Van der Bellen said that whilst be believes a woman should wear “whatever she wants”, should Austria’s “rampant Islamophobia continue, there will come a day when we must ask all women to wear a headscarf – all of them! – out of solidarity towards those who do it for religious reasons”. Van der Bellen, who was sworn in as president in January after defeating anti-mass migration Freedom Party candidate Norbert Hofer in last December’s presidential...

    A French opinion writer named Ivan Rioufol got himself into a heap o’ trouble by referring to Muslims who adhere to fundamentalist or Salafist positions as supporters of the “ideology of the Islamic State”. That seems to me to be an accurately-phrased assertion of equivalence. But the bien-pensées who are in charge of French political culture do not agree. Mr. Rioufol is now under investigation, and may be subject to a criminal procedure. Below is a brief video of Ivan Rioufol’s sinful utterance. Many thanks to Ava Lon for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

    A terror suspect arrested near the Houses of Parliament has been named as Khalid Mohamed Omar Ali. The 27-year-old is believed to be a British national who was born overseas and went to school in Tottenham, north London. He was known to police prior to his arrest, according to Sky sources. Police say the suspect was detained by armed officers just yards from Downing Street after a stop and search in an "intelligence-led" operation.

    March 1. More than 4,000 millionaires emigrated from Germany in 2016, compared to 1,000 millionaires who left the country in 2015, according to the 2017 Global Wealth Migration Review. Before the migration crisis erupted in 2015, millionaires were leaving Germany at the rate of only a few hundred per year. Most of Germany's millionaires, citing deteriorating security, left for Australia, Canada, the United States, Dubai and Israel. The mass exodus of wealth is hollowing out Germany's tax base at a time when the German government is spending tens of billions of euros for the upkeep of millions of refugees and...

    It can hardly be called a coincidence that as Pope Francis heads to Egypt, no doubt to promote "dialogue" with Islam, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI has several days ago published a short letter to a Polish conference on his thought on Church-State relations, in which he echoes his thesis from his famous Regensberg address, that Islam and violence are inherently linked because of its detachment from reason itself. As Francis prepares to repeat his view to persecuted Egyptian Christians that "Muslim terrorism does not exist," and again that it is not "right to identify Islam with violence," Benedict does not...

    French mayor Robert Ménard has been fined by the government for hate speech after mentioning that French children were being “replaced” in schools. Mr. Ménard, who serves as the mayor of Béziers, was sentenced to a fine of 2,000 euros for the comments he made on Twitter in September of 2016, France 24 reports. The independent mayor, who is supported by the Front National, then told local television station LCI a few days after making the post: “In a class in the city centre of my town, 91 per cent of the children are Muslims. Obviously, this is a problem....

    The mood on migration in Sweden appears to have shifted dramatically this year, with a majority of people now saying they want the Nordic nation to take in fewer asylum seekers. The most recent survey, conducted in autumn and winter, found that 52 per cent of respondents said Sweden should slow the migrant flow, with only 26 per cent opposed to the idea. By contrast, Swedes asked the same question in 2015 were almost evenly split on the issue — 40 per cent said they felt the country should be receiving fewer asylum seekers, whilst 37 per cent wanted to...

    In my case, reporters for prominent national publications have gone after me as a way of attacking Donald Trump and his senior subordinates. Matthew Rosenberg of the New York Times, Eli Lake of Bloomberg, Greg Jaffe of the Washington Post and most recently Peter Beinart of the Atlantic have largely ignored the substance of lengthy interviews I have given them, in order to vilify me and the work we do at the Center for Security Policy. In each case, it’s clear these journalists don’t approve of our research and the fact that first Candidate Trump and President Trump have arrived...

    Sunni militant group Jaish al-Adl claims responsibility for killing of guards in Sistan-Baluchestan province Ten Iranian border guards have been killed by Sunni militants in a cross-border attack on the frontier with Pakistan, according to the Tasnim news agency.. “Ten border guards of Mirjaveh county in Sistan-Baluchestan province were martyred in an ambush by the terrorists in the Pakistani border’s zero-point,” Tasnim said. In a statement carried on state media, Iranian police said the guards were killed by long-range guns and “the Pakistani government bears the ultimate responsibility of the attack”.

    Francis, a Dhimmi on the Chair of Peter Maureen Mullarkey April 26, 2017 Francis is on his way to Egypt, prompting George Neumayr to write: “The most liberal pope ever, of course, sees no irony in shilling for the most illiberal religion on Earth.” With that quotation, Robert Bové alerted me this morning—in what he termed “a mourning quote”—to Neumayr’s latest column in The American Spectator. Neumayr has a keen eye and an ear for cant—two qualities unwelcome among fainthearts and papal sycophants. He does not write for academics nor for readers who like to be addressed as if they...

    April 24 marked the 102nd anniversary of the 1915 Armenian Genocide. Armenians around the world – as well those in the international community who care about human rights – remembered the 1.5 million victims of the genocide and paid homage to their legacy. The Armenian Genocide began on April 24, 1915, when the Ottoman Turkish government ordered the deportation of approximately 250 Armenian intellectuals.In the meantime, Turkey has been in a period of political turmoil – particularly following last year’s abortive coup. Since then, the mass dismissal of academics from universities seems to have become the norm in Turkey. According...

    Jihad Watch ^ | Robert Spencer
    In this excellent piece, George Neumayr refers to the rupture of relations between the Vatican and al-Azhar that took place during the time of Pope Benedict. As I explained here, that rupture took place because Pope Benedict dared to speak out about the Muslim persecution of Christians. By contrast, Francis energetically defends Islam, and leaves the persecuted Christians twisting in the wind, so he is acceptable to al-Azhar. The worst part about this is the fact that because this man is Pope, all too many Catholics, including some in positions of high authority, treat him as if he were a...

    Compared to many (perhaps most) visitors and contributors to this site, my own awakening to the dangers of Islam came late — around 2010. Despite the mountain of evidence — and bodies — piling up, I did not see the problem. The steady drumbeat of political correctness that was the soundtrack to my life from university onwards had all but closed my mind to anything outside the narrow confines of The Narrative. I have to thank the cartoonists at Jyllands-Posten, the heroic Lars Vilks and the late Christopher Hitchens for throwing a bucket of ice-cold water in my face. But...
