    DRESDEN, Germany (AP) -- Thousands of people are taking part in protests against Islam and immigration in several European cities. Police in Dresden say they expect about 15,000 protesters at a rally organized by the group Patriotic Europeans against the Islamization of the West. Known by its German acronym PEGIDA, the group emerged in Dresden two years ago and has become a magnet for far-right and anti-immigrant sentiment. About 10,000 people are expected to take part in a counter-demonstration Saturday on the other side of the river Elbe, which divides the city.

    Whatever the reason, President Barack Obama got a lot of things factually wrong in his 3 February 2016 speech at the Islamic Center of Baltimore. Things that are basic to doctrinal Islam are not only knowable because they are readily available in English but, it might be argued, obligatory that an American commander-in-chief should know in fulfillment of his oath to defend the Constitution against “all enemies foreign and domestic.”

A teacher was very unhappy at the sight of this typically Swiss clothing; he asked them to go and put something else on. According to the "SonntagsZeitung", the teacher considered that this manner of dress conveyed "racist and xenophobic" ideas. The ten pupils decided to come to school wearing peasant shirts and to sing patriotic songs to show their "pride in being Swiss". Tensions with classmates of Balkan origin are said to be at the origin of this initiative, reports the...

    eb Bush said Thursday it was "more than appropriate" for President Barack Obama to speak at a mosque, a departure from several of his Republican rivals. But, Bush argued, it took too long for Obama to make his first visit to a U.S. mosque as president. "I don't think it's divisive to go speak in a mosque. I'm surprised it took his eighth year to do it," the former Florida governor told reporters after stopping at a diner here. "The bigger issue is what have you done to deal with ISIS. It's important to recognize that peace-loving Muslims who are...

On the December 2nd he brutally attacked the young boy, pulling him into a changing cubicle, pulling down his swimming trunks and assaulting him. Although the boy cried out...

With Colonel Gaddafi's home city now firmly in the grip of Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) militants, the billboards' rusting black gantries are now used for crucifixions of anyone accused of "spying" against the regime. The corpses of murdered suspects are strung up as a graphic warning to others, with the victims' families then prevented from retrieving their bodies...

    Barack Obama suffers from serious case of the real Islamophobia -- fear of telling the truth about Islam. Even though a "progressive," he says nary a word about the rampant misogyny and homophobia in Islam or about Sharia law whose medieval strictures are preferred by 51% of American Muslims. Nor does he seem to care that so few of these same American Muslims actively oppose radical Islam. The president prefers the Hamas-linked CAIR to courageous reformers like Dr. Zuhdi Jasser. But that's no surprise. For Obama, radical Islam doesn't even exist. Instead, he claims American citizens are mistreating their Muslim...

    German bathroom manufacturers are developing “multicultural toilets” to help ensure Middle Eastern migrants need not adapt to European sanitation norms. Multiple reports have emerged of recent arrivals finding themselves utterly “mystified” by Western loos. Some have resorted to doing their business on the floor or outdoors, others have used showers, and many migrants will have never seen toilet paper before. The issue caused some serious confusion last year, with one small German village being accused of racism after issuing leaflets politely asking migrants to use to the correct facilities.

    MILWAUKEE (AP) - A civil liberties group said Wednesday that it plans to file federal discrimination and harassment complaints after a Wisconsin manufacturer fired seven Muslim employees for violating a company break policy that doesn't provide extra time for prayer. Ariens Co. terminated the workers in a dispute that began last month when it moved to enforce an existing rule of two 10-minute breaks per work shift and dozens of Muslim staffers of Somali descent walked off the job in protest.

    A New York Times op-ed argues that Obama’s visit to the Islamic Society of Baltimore mosque “demonstrates tacit acceptance of a form of gender apartheid.” From the New York Times: As President and Michelle Obama argued decades ago in the context of the U.S. civil rights movement, separate is indeed unequal. To Muslim women’s rights activists fighting for equal access to mosques as part of a broader campaign for reform — from equal education for women and girls to freedom from so-called “honor killings” — the president’s visit to a mosque that practices such blatant inequity represents a step backwards....

    For the first time during his seven years in office, President Obama visited a mosque on Wednesday to share a message of 'religious tolerance and unity.' "We're one American family, and when any part of our family starts to feel second class or separate or targeted, it tears at the very fabric of our nation," the president said. Muslims, he continued, are "some of the most resilient and patriotic Americans you'll ever meet." He even spoke about how "Islam has always been part of America." "Islam has always been part of America," he said, detailing the beginnings of the...

    Swedish social workers were told that an in-house memorial service for one of their murdered peers was forbidden because it might upset Muslim refugees. Alexandra Mezher, 22, was killed Jan. 25 in Mölndal, Sweden, while trying to break up a fight between two teenagers. The young woman died of stab wounds inflicted by a migrant. Social workers in Örnsköldsvik who could not make the 550-mile drive to Mezher’s official memorial service wanted to hold an impromptu ceremony but were denied by the town council. Roughly 163,000 migrants applied for asylum in the Scandinavian country last year, which made it the...

    As Europe struggles to cope with a migrant crisis that's already the worst refugee catastrophe since World War II and which threatens to spiral even further out of control once the weather turns in the spring, officials have offered a variety of possible "solutions" to the various refugee-related "problems" that have cropped up. Some are better than others. One idea that didn't go over too well was a suggestion by Cologne mayor Henriette Reker, who last month said it was German women's responsibility to keep would-be assailants at arms length and to adopt an appropriate "code of conduct." That, some...
