  • On Zakat, Jihad and Shariah-Compliance

    Shariah Finance Watch ^ | 5 April 2012 | Unknown
    Here we have two important links that touch on themes that we have covered extensively over the years: Zakat, Jihad and Shariah-Compliant Finance. The first article from the excellent Gates of Vienna blog, points out that one of the destinations of zakat (tithing in Islam) is “those fighting in the way of allah…” http://gatesofvienna.blogspot.com/2012/04/on-zakat-and-jihad.html The second article ties zakat to Shariah-Compliant Finance. It is a column out of Malaysia, one of the global centers of Shariah finance, that points out–in detail–Shariah-Compliant companies are in fact liable for zakat payments. Shariah-compliant companies, either fully owned by Muslims, or jointly owned by...

  • Officials from Egypt's Brotherhood at White House (Huge Story)

    White House officials held talks with representatives of the Muslim Brotherhood in Washington this week, as the Islamist group threw itself into the fray in Egypt's presidential election. The meeting on Tuesday with low-level National Security Council staff was part of a series of US efforts to broaden engagement with new and emerging political parties following Egypt's revolution last year, a US official said. The White House pointed out that Republican Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain, and other US lawmakers and officials had also met with Brotherhood representatives in Egypt and elsewhere in recent months. "We believe that it...

    "One day, we 'Islamophobes' will be deemed the voice of reason" Eric Allen Bell Eric Allen Bell's story is very interesting. A liberal and one time contributor to the huge liberal website (The Daily Kos) he used to write Pro-Islam articles for the TDK and other liberal sites, that is until he went to the Middle East to do some research for a film. Then he changed his mind about Islam, wrote 3 articles critical of Islam at TDK and was let go and banned from the site. Just months later Eric is here debating an Islamic Scholar (albeit the...

    This 16 hour video course on "Apologetics to Islam" by Joe Carey (from radicaltruth.net) is the best course or class on Islam I have ever seen, HANDS DOWN. And I have collected about 15 of them here on this site. It is so good I am going to show all 16 hours at my church. It is even a great resource for non-Christians to learn about Islam. NO HYPE - YOU GOTTA SEE THIS - all of it! Joe has been studying Islam since 1999, has a Masters Degree from Biola University (with and emphasis on Islam) and has been...

    I was not planning on doing any reporting tonight, but while walking through the city something caught my eye, and it was not this: The Village Voice dispenser and a few others are a common site in NYC. What caught my eye was this one: Walking near the halal invaded area of Madison Square Garden, I spotted the Pakistan Post dispenser. This was the first time I had noticed one of them. Since then I saw another one about a dozen locks away, and was told one has been located in Queens. The about page of the publication states they...

    The Obin Report showed a deep infiltration by radical Islam into the vast majority of French schools and a vitriolic hatred for Jews. What the Report showed was so alarming that the text was not initially disclosed. Nobody dares to say that more than thirty mosques all over the country broadcast incendiary remarks that have « nothing to do with the teachings of Islam, » and that the same remarks are received daily on television by tens of thousands of Muslims in France through the Arabic version of Al Jazeera. The Congress of the French branch of the Muslim Brotherhood...

    This video goes four minutes, and it’s heartbreaking. Imagine going back to your hometown and not only has the place completely gone to hell, but the people running rampant have the gall to get in your face and tell you you’re going to hell. The Islamists are taking over big chunks of Europe, and it’s worse in the UK than a lot of other places. They’re a hostile, invasive presence which is breaking down European society. And the response? You can see it on the video.

    SNIPPET: "WASHINGTON, April 2 (UPI) -- A blackout of al-Qaida's main Web sites is in its 11th day, and officials think the forums may have been brought down in a cyberattack. While no one has claimed credit for disabling the sites..." SNIPPET: "The loss of information typically confuses and frustrates the readers of the Web sites. "It leaves the rank-and-file to guess which messages and which messengers are genuine al-Qaida, and provides undercover operators with new opportunities to disrupt the movement," said A. Aaron Weisburd, senior fellow at the Homeland Security Policy Institute."

    In 1994, 85 innocent civilians were killed in a bombing of a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Hundreds more were wounded. To this day, that bombing is the worst terrorist attack ever to take place on the South American continent. The bombing is believed to have been a joint operation of Hezbollah and the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. Recently there has been a new development in the case.

    The New York Times ^ | April 1, 2012 | STEVEN ERLANGER PARIS
    France and the United States have different notions of liberty, equality and fraternity, though the words look roughly the same in both languages. Methods of combating homegrown terrorism — another French word dating from 1789 — are also quite different, stemming from different histories, legal systems and conceptions of the state. The horrors in Toulouse — the murders of seven people in a bit more than a week by Mohammed Merah, a 23-year-old French citizen of Algerian-born parents who claimed membership in Al Qaeda — created a fierce debate in France about whether the police and security services failed to...

    The Yassine family of Austin, Texas is apparently quite the enterprising group. Led by Hussein “Mike” Yassine, the Yassines were quite diversified. They own 8 bars. According to law enforcement authorities they are also a one-family crime wave. They are involved in murder, money laundering, drug dealing–and they have a brother back in Lebanon who is part of Hezbollah.

    Shariah Finance Watch ^ | 1 April 2012 | Unknown
    A firm called Ethical Asset Management in the UK is launching a Sukuk fund for individual investors. This is fairly unremarkable, but the designation “ethical” is worth commenting on. Ethical is a subjective term. To most Westerners, there is little or nothing ethical about Shariah. On the contrary, many of the tenets of Shariah are decidedly barbaric and offensive to Western values, particularly values of freedom and liberty.

    TORONTO - An Islamic bookstore in east Toronto is selling books that urge Muslims to usurp the Western world and install an Islamic State in its place. The books, written by deceased Islamic scholar Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi - are available at the Islamic Circle of North America bookstore in Scarborough. "Islam wishes to destroy all States and Governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and programme of Islam regardless of the country or the Nation that rules it," Maududi wrote in Jihad in Islam. "Islam requires the earth - not just a...

    At 8:46 a.m. on September 11, 2001, the first plane struck the North Tower of the World Trade Center, and America woke up to the terror of jihad. I use the words “woke up” because jihad existed long before that terrible morning. And it continues to cause much of the world’s violence today. On 9/11, we were blindsided. But we never should have been. The word jihad literally means “struggle,” but it’s often used to communicate the concept of holy war. It is on the lips of violent terrorists, but it is also shouted by Egyptian mobs who assault Coptic...

Yesterday's Muslim bomb attacks in Thailand continue and were far more deadly than originally reported. Thailand: More attacks & hundreds more casualties than originally reported, 15 dead, 500+ injured, dozens critical. No major media is covering this war on Thailand. I have seen nothing in the States in this. Atlas reader RV in Thailand reports: "The Muslim attacks yesterday (Saturday March 31st) inflicted...

    It is widely known that much of the funding for Jihadist terrorist organizations, such as Al Qaeda, Hamas, Abu Sayyef and Jemaah Islamiyah come from private donations to Islamic charities through zakat payments, a system of tithing in Islam. The Saudi government claims that they are virtually powerless to stop this activity, something that makes us incredulous, given the Shariah police state that is Saudi Arabia. But that is the whole point. Wealthy Saudis and their charities participate in zakat because Shariah commands it.
