    VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis embraced the grand imam of Cairo's Al-Azhar Mosque at the Vatican on Monday in a historic encounter both sides hope will lead to greater understanding and dialogue between the two faiths. The first Vatican meeting between the leader of the world's Catholics and the highest authority in Sunni Islam marks the culmination of a significant improvement in relations between the two faiths since Francis took office in 2013. "Our meeting is the message," Francis said in a brief comment at the start of his meeting with Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb, shortly after he had hugged and...

The school started the task force after increased hostility towards Muslim students on campus because of terrorist attacks like those in Paris, Belgium, and San Bernadino. Those attacks and other international terror threats instilled fear in many people across the United States - fear...

    A prominent Saudi cleric has declared photographs with cats, and other animals, unless completely necessary due to an upsurge in Saudis “who want to be like Westerners.” On a televised broadcast, Sheikh Saleh Bin Fawzan Al-Fazwan, a member of the Saudi Council of Senior Scholars, was told about “a new trend of taking pictures with cats has been spreading among people who want to be like Westerners.” He replied: “What?! What do you mean pictures with cats? Taking pictures is prohibited. The cats don’t matter here.” The sheikh continued: “Taking pictures is prohibited if not for a necessity. Not with...

    A Muslim family therapist in Saudi Arabia, Khaled Al-Saqaby, posted a video in which he gives advice on “wife beating,” explains that the “necessary Islamic conditions for beating must be met,” and shows that husbands must not use a long wooden rod to beat their wife but instead use a tooth-cleaning twig or handkerchief. In the video from February, which was translated into English and re-posted by the Washington, D.C.-based Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), therapist Khaled Al-Saqaby begins, “Assalaam Alaykum. Allah’s blessing upon you. Welcome to our show, which will deal with wife beating. I am aware that...

    Hijra, or jihad by emigration, is a fundamental tenet of Islam hearkening back to the earliest days of Mohammed’s war to establish hegemony over the cities of southwest Arabia. The most notable Hijra was the flight of Mohammed from Mecca to the largely Jewish city of Yathrib, now the completely Muslim city of Medina. While the story of how Yathrib came to be Medina is too long to recount here, suffice it to say that by fleeing the city of Mecca, where they appeared to be in danger of being eliminated, and appearing at Yathrib as refugees, Mohammed and his...

    The State Department admitted 80 Syrian refugees on Tuesday and 225 on Monday, setting a new single-day record, as President Obama surges to try to meet his target of 10,000 approvals this year — sparking renewed fears among security experts who say corners are being cut to meet a political goal. Officials insisted they’re moving faster because they’re getting better at screening, and say they’re still running all the traps on applicants. But the new spike in numbers is stunning, with more people accepted on Monday alone than were approved in the entire months of January or February.

    EgyptAir Flight 804 that crashed into the Mediterranean Sea on May 19, 2016 had been tagged two years ago with graffiti that read in Arabic “We will bring this plane down.” The words “traitor” and “murderer” were also written in messages directed at Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. Security officials attributed the graffiti to the work of aviation workers at Cairo Airport who were protesting former General el-Sisi after he ousted the elected president Mohamed Morsi in 2013.

    Samoa's council of churches has welcomed the prime minister's call to review the religious freedom provisions of the constitution. Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi recently said the country's supreme law may be changed to recognise Christian principles and teachings, not just in the preamble. However the Secretary General of the Samoa Council of Churches, Reverend Ma'auga Motu, said he would go a step further and ban the religion of Islam. He said even though most Samoans are Christian, Islam poses a future threat to the country. "We are not going too far, no," Reverend Motu said. "We are still wanting our own...

Those who demonstrate academic competence will then take part in a year-long drone building challenge during the school year, as the work and tutoring continues.

The Daily Mail said that the meeting between these two men was a “historic bid to reopen dialogue between the two churches”, and as you will see below this is yet another in a long series of attempts by Pope Francis to build bridges between Catholicism...

    How is it that nearly fifteen (15) years after 9/11 none (ie ZERO) of the Islamic advisors to the United States government have shared with our leaders the Quranic concept of abrogation, the definition of “jihad” in sharia (Islamic Law), or the fact sharia obliges jihad until the entire world is under sharia? It is because sharia obliges Muslims to lie to non-Muslims when the goal is obligatory (eg Jihad), and makes it a capital crime for Muslims to teach other Muslims anything about Islam which is not a part of authoritative Islam. This means if American leadership wants to...

    At the entrance to Thaungtan village there’s a brand new sign, bright yellow, and bearing a message: “No Muslims allowed to stay overnight. No Muslims allowed to rent houses. No marriage with Muslims.” The post was erected in late March by Buddhist residents of the village in Myanmar’s lush Irrawaddy Delta region who signed, or were strong-armed into signing, a document asserting that they wanted to live separately. Since then a couple of other villages across the country have followed suit. Small but viciously insular, these “Buddhist-only” outposts serve as microcosms of the festering religious tensions that threaten Myanmar’s nascent...

    Why would a “pensioner, 66,” suddenly go on a stabbing spree and try to murder four women? Maybe Ethem Aydin Orhon is mentally ill; we will certainly be told that he is, whether he is or not. But there is also the possibility — one which neither authorities nor the mainstream media are likely to pursue — that this Turkish Muslim had a different motivation, say, something like this: “If you are not able to find an IED or a bullet, then single out the disbelieving American, Frenchman, or any of their allies.

    Pope Francis startled many Catholics this week by likening Jesus' admonition to his apostles to go forth and preach the Gospel to Mohamed's call for Muslims to wage jihad against unbelievers, calling both "incitements to conquest." "In a way, beheading someone or blowing them up may be less intrusive than Jesus' command to 'love thy neighbor' or to 'turn the other cheek,'" Francis said. "The jihadi attacks the body, but the Christian missionary invades the soul. Even the most grievous injury to the flesh is transitory. But changing a person's soul persists beyond his temporary Earthly existence." Francis went on...

In Houellebecq’s tale, France’s effete and enervated elites acquiesce to the ascendant power, Islam, in order that they may remain elites. Francois, Houellebecq’s loathsome protagonist, can find little reason to go on living other than satisfying libidinous urges. Disillusioned and thwarted, he sets out in the footsteps of his dissertation subject (and would-be inspiration), Joris-Karl Huysmans, in search of spiritual rebirth, only to find that Christian culture—for him and implicitly for Europe—no longer possesses the...

    “Before I get started, I just wanted to say that we are meeting on stolen indigenous people’s land. That’s really important to acknowledge.” So declared San Francisco State University race and resistance studies professor Rabab Abdulhadi, at the University of California, Berkeley’s Seventh Annual International Islamophobia Conference in April. Abdulhadi’s seemingly disjointed declaration was typical of the post-colonial, “intersectionality”-driven jargon of the entire conference, which sought to link the mythical plight of America’s prosperous, content Muslim population, with the struggles of every oppressed minority known to man. It was also an opportunity for two academic centers at opposite ends of...
  • Equating today’s Jihad with the Crusades is an Islamist’s lie perpetuated by the western media

    Since the beginning of the most recent uprisings by the cowardly Islamic world, we have repeatedly been told by their apologists that Muslim attacks on the civilized world are merely a continuation of their response to the Crusades. They insist the Crusades are the moral equivalent and justification for jihad. The accompanying video, featuring Bill Warner PhD, demolishes this lie in a well-constructed 5 minutes presentation. Dr. Warner uses simple and effective graphics showing us the HUGE disparity in the number of battles initiated by the Christian Crusaders and those made by the loathsome Islamists since the 7th century. The...
  • Hugh Fitzgerald: Pope Francis: Islam and Christianity Share “the Idea of Conquest”

    Pope Francis continues to astonish. He has just said, in an interview with the French Catholic paper La Croix, that “the idea of conquest is inherent to the soul of Islam.” As far as his understanding of Islam goes, this is a marked improvement over his disturbing statement, back in November 2013, that the “Koran is a book of peace” and “Islam is a peaceful religion.” Now he at last recognizes – how could he not, after yet another year of Muslim bombs and bloodletting all over the place? – that Islam has something to do with “conquest,” that is,...

    The Egyptian military said Friday that it had located wreckage from EgyptAir flight 804 in the Mediterranean Sea. Egyptian army spokesman Brig. Gen. Mohammed Samir said in a statement posted on his Facebook page that Egyptian jets and naval vessels found "personal belongings of the passengers and parts of the plane debris," 180 miles north of the Egyptian port city of Alexandria. Searchers had been looking at a wide area south of the Greek island of Crete for the Airbus A320, which was nearing the end of its scheduled flight from Paris to Cairo early Thursday when contact was lost....

    Coming back to the migrant issue, the worst form of welcome is to ‘ghettoize’them. On the contrary, it’s necessary to integrate them. . This integration is all the more necessary today since, as a result of a selfish search for well-being, Europe is experiencing the grave problem of a declining birth rate.

    This story epitomizes how hysterical and thoughtless the public discourse is nowadays. Trump is presented by the late Bob Bennett and the Daily Beast as an “Islamophobe” — someone with an irrational hatred of or fear of Islam and Muslims. In reality, he hasn’t said anything about Islam at all except that clearly there is a “problem,” and there obviously is. He has called for a temporary moratorium on Muslim immigration as an attempt to stop Islamic jihadis from entering the country. Did Bennett address that problem? Not from the looks of this story. Did Bennett propose an alternative method...

    The presumptive Republican candidate in the US presidential election, Donald Trump, has called on Muslims to work with the police and "turn people in". In an interview with the UK's ITV, Mr Trump said he was not anti-Muslim, but "anti-terror". He was reacting to remarks by UK Prime Minister David Cameron that he was "stupid, divisive and wrong" in calling for Muslims to be banned from the US. Mr Trump made the call last year, when he was not the party's front-runner. He insisted that when he called for an immediate temporary ban on Muslims being allowed into America, there...
  • German Christian leaders renew call for openness to migrants

    “Migrants, they added, should be met ‘with openness, with the spirit of love of neighbor.'” How grand. Meanwhile, the migrants might meet these German Christian leaders with a somewhat different spirit. Doubt that could ever happen in Germany? Why? Ahmad al-Mohammed and one other of the jihadis who murdered 130 people in Paris in November 2015 had just entered Europe as refugees. In February 2015, the Islamic State boasted it would soon flood Europe with as many as 500,000 refugees. And the Lebanese Education Minister said in September 2015 that there were 20,000 jihadis among the refugees in camps in...
