    A Bangladeshi refugee, who raped a 16-year-old high-school girl in France, has been acquitted by the court due to “different cultural norms,” according to reports. The refugee, who attended the same school as his victim in the French city of Saint-Lô, was also charged with sexually assaulting another young girl in 2015. The attorney contended that the defendant possessed “different cultural norms,” which led to a "misunderstanding" of how the girl dressed, her behavior and looks.

    NY Times Claims 'True Islam Does Not Kill Blasphemers' Yes, and the Soviet Union was a worker’s paradise.+++ In the second Islamic apologetics article that the New York Times published in as many days last week (here’s my takedown of the other one), Turkish professional moderate Mustafa Akyol (pictured above) claimed: “True Islam Does Not Kill Blasphemers.” It’s unlikely that anyone laughed, because people who know the truth and care about it are unlikely to be subscribers to the New York Times. Here is a quick test of whether what Mustafa Akyol says is true or not: let him go...

  • Teresa May blocked asylum for Asia Bibi over Home Secretary’s objection, to appease Muslims

    If there are any free people in Britain in future generations, they will curse the name of Theresa May, whose misrule is rapidly leading the nation to ruin. She won’t let in Asia Bibi, for fear that Muslims will be angry. So it is clear who is in charge in Britain now. The British government routinely bans foes of jihad terror and critics of Islam, while letting in jihadis. The Home Office recently banned Martin Sellner, Brittany Pettibone, Lauren Southern and Lutz Bachmann from entering, all for the crime of opposing jihad terror and Sharia oppression, and thereby made it...
  • Forget Khashoggi, Where Were Our Elites When Obama Assassinated American Citizens?

    In the wake of Trump’s announcement this week that his administration would continue to “stand with Saudi Arabia” despite the recent murder of Washington Postcolumnist Jamal Khashoggi, America’s mainstream media elites erupted in their usual paroxysms of despair and condemnation of the president. Although this time the typical “orange man bad” stories tended to omit calls for Trump to be immediately overthrown by the military or his own cabinet, almost every other major trope was preponderant. This was especially true of Khashoggi’s former place of employment at the Post, where journalists almost universally portrayed Trump as having blood on...

    In yet another shocking failure in a long line of interfaith outreach by Western governments since 9/11, The Daily Telegraph reports today that the American-born Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, has been recently promoting a program associated with the notorious Al-Manaar mosque not far from Kensington Palace. The mosque has produced as many as nineteen terrorists -- including "Jihadi John" and his Islamic State "Beatles" who tortured and beheaded Western captives in Syria. The duchess has helped raise more than $250,000 for the Hubb Community Kitchen operated out of the mosque by promoting a cookbook that royal press agents have...

Lars Hedegaard is a Danish historian, journalist and author who established the International Free Press Society in 2004, and because he is outspoken about Islam, in 2013, an assassin posing as a postman attempted to shoot Hedegaard in his home. The attempt failed, and the assailant escaped. Recently Hedegaard received a disturbing call from a friend in Sweden, he writes on Facebook: On December 29, 2016 I received a call from a friend in Sweden. I've known him for years and I know he would not lie. My friend had just come...

    During his conversation with the Russian people today, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin cited with approval the conclusion of “certain theoreticians who say that Orthodox Christianity is much closer to Islam than Catholicism is,” something that he suggests should be the basis for restoring national concord. In his responses to questions, Putin stressed that “Caucasians must not be afraid to live in Moscow or Russians to live in the North Caucasus.” Instead, he continued, “all citizens of Russia of whatever faith or nationality must recognize that we have a single common Motherland." The simplification of Huntington’s ideas in the intervening years...

    Voice of Europe ^ | 23 November 2018
    In a Friday morning interview with Kossuth Radio, the Hungarian Prime Minister criticised migrant debit cards, political correctness and censorship in Europe. Viktor Orban said he was surprised by the handing out of migrant debit cards. “The issue of the migrant debit cards came as a surprise even for weather-beaten veterans like me,” the Prime Minister said. Orban heavily criticised the initiative by pointing to security: “handing out anonymous debit cards to ‘people we don’t know’ is a direct threat to the lives of Europeans.” He warned that political correctness and the prohibition to talk about things that are obvious...

    The Prime Minister has proposed new laws to make it easier to strip Australian citizenship from those convicted of terrorism offences. "We will be removing that requirement," Mr Morrison said. "It will only be if they are convicted of a terrorist offence, the current wording of the law, we believe it is unrealistic and needs to reflect the genuine threat that has been posed by those engaged in this activity." The Government is also wanting to change the threshold for stripping Australian citizenship. "The Minister will only need to be reasonably satisfied that a person would otherwise have another citizenship,...
  • Large increase in Finnish women converting to Islam

    Voice of Europe ^ | 22 November 2018
    Recent months have seen a huge increase in the number of Finnish women converting to Islam and adopting the full face veil. The niqab and hijab are becoming a common sight in Helsinki after a large influx of Muslim migrants entered the country from 2015 onwards. Finland has also seen an increase in violent and sexual crime since this, as well as, drug trafficking. However, many Finnish women are converting ‘in search of spirituality’ and also apparently feel more liberated when wearing the full face veil. The converts also say to be ‘liberated through the Islamic headdress’, which allows them...

    Conservative Firing Line ^ | 11/21/2018 | Faye Higbee
    In an unbelievable travesty of justice, US District Judge Bernard Friedman dismissed a federal case against defendants charged with FGM and released them, saying that the 22 year old statute against Female Genital Mutilation is unconstitutional. Thirty other nations have outlawed the practice, but the judge says it has to be left up to the states. Several Michigan doctors faced federal charges after subjecting about 100 under-aged girls to the barbaric practice of a Muslim sect. Two mothers were also charged under the statute. Judge Friedman released them, saying that Congress overstepped its bounds in creating the law in the...

    The French overseas region of Mayotte has reported that the indigenous Shimaore-speakers of the island have now become a minority due to the rapidly rising number of illegal migrants arriving on the island in recent years. The island, which is located off the coast of Mozambique, is a French department with an MP sitting in the French National Assembly. Mayotte’s MP Mansour Kamardine, a member of the conservative Republicans, has sounded the alarm on the situation saying that the island has experienced a four per cent population growth per year due to mass migration, Franceinfo reports. “Now it’s official: The...

    A federal judge dismissed charges Tuesday against two doctors and six others involved in the genital mutilation of nine girls at a Detroit clinic, and also declared a US law banning the practice unconstitutional. US District Judge Bernard Friedman dismissed mutilation and conspiracy charges against Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, who performed the surgery, and Dr. Fakhruddin Attar, who allowed his clinic in Livonia, Michigan, to be used for the procedure. The same charges were dismissed against Attar's wife, Farida, and Tahera Shafiq, who assisted in the procedure, as well as four women who tricked their daughters into going to the suburban...

    Much has been reported in the past few days on the decision by the European Court of Human Rights that the designation of the Prophet Mohammed as “pedophilic” in the context of a 2009 seminar led by the Austrian Islam-critic Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff is not legally covered by the right of free expression of opinion. The waves caused by this decision were detectable even in the USA, where the popular Fox show, “Tucker Carlson” dedicated a full segment to the case. Independent of whether this was a “scandalous decision,” it indicates a disturbing trend: a re-clericalization of public space in which...

    Facebook has come under fire for a "barbaric use of technology" that allowed the sale of a child bride to be held on its site. An auction was held on the social media platform for a 16-year-old girl in South Sudan which sought payment for her hand in marriage. Facebook said the post was taken down as soon as the company learned of it, but that wasn't until after the girl was married. According to children's rights organization Plan International, the girl was bid on by five men, some of whom were reportedly high-ranking South Sudanese government officials. Activists are concerned that...
