  • The Palestinization of UNESCO

    11/23/2011 8:43:22 AM PST · by ventanax5 · 2 replies · 1+ views
    In January 1981 the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) Summit meeting in Mecca declared that, "Palestine should be viewed as the paramount issue of Muslim nations." Since then Europe hastened to adopt this path as well and has provided for the Palestinization of the cultural, social and above all political life of Europe. For three decades, Europe obeyed the OIC in a servile manner. The EU has effectively created a major problem for itself that is eating away and destroying it. The EU made Palestine the hub of its international policy, transforming it into a symbol of peace and...
  • Has your Thanksgiving turkey been sacrificed to idols?

    Apologies if this has already been postedAs you sit down with your family on Thanksgiving and consider offering a prayer of gratitude, be aware the turkey at the center of the table may have already been "blessed" – in the name of Allah. Customer service representatives from Butterball, one of America's most popular Turkey brands, confirmed to WND that the company's whole turkeys are – without being labeled as such – slaughtered according to Islamic "halal" standards. "Halal slaughter involves cutting the trachea, the esophagus and the jugular vein and letting the blood drain out while saying, 'Bismillah allahu akbar'...

    Alan Johnson: How does a medical doctor come to produce books on Islam, Jihad and antisemitism? Andrew Bostom: It's pretty straightforward. The stimulus was 9/11. Until then I was an average citizen trying to keep abreast of world events. I am not particularly religious as a Jew though I certainly support the state of Israel. But I grew up in New York, living in Queens most of my life, and I went to medical school in Brooklyn. My wife and I still have family in New York City, so the day of 9/11 itself was traumatic, trying to make sure...

    A Republican politician has sparked religious fury by demanding all Muslims be forced out of the U.S. military. Tennessee State Representative Rick Womick claimed serving Muslims posed a significant threat and needed to be kicked out of the armed forces because their religion commands them to lie. Interviewed on Veteran's Day by the Think Progress website he said: 'Personally I don't trust one Muslim in our military because they're commanded to lie to us. 'And if they really are a devout Muslim and follow the Koran and the and the Sunnah, then I feel threatened because they're commanded to kill...

    Last Friday I was on the Sean Hannity Show, debating Muslim activist Michael Ghouse on the future of Libya. Debating Michael Ghouse is like shooting kuffar in a barrel. But Friday night, Ghouse presented me with an enormous Qur'an, courtesy of the Muslim Brotherhood-tied Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR): The Message of the Qur'an, Translated and Explained by Muhammad Asad. Giving out these giant door-stoppers is further proof of Hamas-linked CAIR's limitless resources. Inside, Ghouse had written this inscription: "Quran has 25 translations. 2 are bad -- One by Christian Kings other by Muslims -- both to generate hate for...
  • Christianity And Islam: A Side By Side Comparison

    10/13/2011 2:18:10 PM PDT · by Just4Him · 26 replies
    Please take a look at the comparison chart in the provided link. Excellent comparison! Each year, thousands of Christian homes and churches are torched or bombed by Muslim mobs, and hundreds of Christians, including dozens of priests, pastors, nuns and other church workers are murdered at the hands of Islamic extremists. The so-called justification varies, from charges of apostasy or evangelism, to purported "blasphemy" or "insulting" Islam. Innocent people have even been hacked to death by devout Muslims over cartoons. Yet, there is little if any violent retaliation from religious Christians to the discrimination, kidnapping, rape, torture, mutilation and murder...

    Muslims are forbidden to touch dogs. They believe any house where a dog is kept will never be entered by God’s angels. If this was all there was to it, who could quarrel with their position? Jews can’t eat pork (Muslims can’t either) Muslims can’t have anything to do with dogs, what’s the problem? Actually, the Muslims themselves are the problem. Muslims, especially the Islamist Muslims can not and will not leave the question of dogs alone. Because they are taught by their religion that “Allah” commands them to kill dogs, they could not care less who owns a particular...

    By George Bush I don't mean the 41st or 43rd Presidents of the United States, but the 19th century clergyman and historian George Bush, who was also the author of the first American biography of Mohammed. Bush was also the great-grand uncle of the 41st President, and the great-great grand uncle of the 43rd President. But his views on Islam were significantly different than those of his more Saudi friendly modern day relations. George Bush was one of the more famous ministers of his day, a biblical scholar, a liberal and controversial thinker. And while his biography of Mohammed was...

After meeting Christians for the first time in his life, al Fadi became enamored. He explained his conversion to CBN’s Erick Stakelbeck: “Basically, the more I met people who...

    Kalb, or dog, is one of the worst possible insults in the Muslim world. Call a man Kalb or Kalb ibn Kalb, if you want the knives to come out. In Afghanistan, those who fled the Taliban and returned to help the Coalition rebuild the country are called "Sag shouey" or "Dog washers" since Americans are infidel dogs and the Afghans who cooperate with Americans are menial servants of the dogs. Mohammed, in addition to his affinity for pre-teen girls also had a compulsive hatred of dogs. Some Hadiths quote him ordering the killing of all dogs, others show him...

    Introduction Over recent years, a new phenomenon has emerged among radical Islamist circles: the rise of a global network of groups calling for the total Islamization of Western states and societies via the implementation of shari'a law, the abolishment of democratic states and their replacement by Islamic regimes. These groups, which have referred to themselves as the global shari'a movement, strive to globalize ideas and tactics hatched within radical Islamist circles in the U.K. These circles are led by Sheikh 'Omar Bakri, who was denied reentry into the country after he left for Lebanon following the 2005 London bombings, and...

    Churches in the U.S. are preparing to read sections of the Torah on Sunday, August 13, in a show of solidarity with Israel and the Jewish people. The move is a response to an initiative by a group of churches that read from the Muslim Koran during their services on Sunday, June 26. According to the Faith Shared project, which initiated the Koran reading, 66 churches from 32 states joined that effort. In an effort to counter the move, a grassroots movement of churches across America is preparing to read from sections of the Torah during their services. According to...

    In his 1984 bestseller, “The Haj” (Doubleday, NY), Leon Uris captured the essence of the Arab-Israeli conflict through his two protagonists: Haj Ibrahim, muktar of the village of Tabah in the Ayalon Valley of Mandatory Palestine, and Gideon Asch, a pre-Israel Palestinian Jew, whose familiarity with Arab life, language and culture made him an honorary Bedouin. Uris’ dialogue astutely reveals the vast differences between the Arab and Jewish mindsets – deeply rooted in their cultural differences. Uris focuses on the Jewish liberal, cosmopolitan culture of openness, practicality, compromise, and humanism in contrast to the unforgiving desert culture of the Arabs,...

Ms. Geller reported on a story of which I was previously unaware: the suspicious death of a Muslim woman in Tampa, Florida back in August of 2009. Her death was ruled “accidental” by Tampa authorities, but judging from the facts and circumstances of the case, it seems more likely that her death was murder, a so-called “honor killing” by...

They applied for a permit to hold the protest, but not only was no permit given, they ended up in court and then in jail. As Nina Shea reports at National...

    Allahpundit had a nice roundup yesterday of the pre-crime trial of pastor Terry Jones. Today I came across this impromptu interview with one of the jurors in the trial. His name is Daniel Smith and he’s identified as a juror in this clip by a local Fox affiliate. As you’ll hear, free speech in this case definitely took a back seat to concerns over violence, specifically violent reactions from Muslims: (VIDEO AT LINK) Q: Was the weighing of the free speech question heavily…? Juror: It was an issue that we talked about but again we were…we were there to really...

    What’s Wrong With islamophobia? Originally published September 8, 2010, at realetybytes.com, By Ron Reale islamophobe definition: Anyone smart enough to realize that islam is NOT a religion, but a political system dependent on the barbaric sharia law, which uses intimidation, violence and beheadings to force everyone into submission, (islam does not mean “peace”, it means “submission”). It is diametrically opposed to freedom, and is a threat to the existence of the United States. Americans have a right to protest peacefully about anything. We put up with Flag burners, artists who desecrate Christian symbols, KKK protests in the street an more....

    DETROIT (WXYZ) - The jury has found that a proposed protest by Quran-burning pastor Terry Jones outside the Islamic Center of America in Dearborn, the largest mosque in the United States, is likely to breach the peace and incite violence. The jury has been debating since 3:30 p.m .Thursday. The main issue of the trial was whether or not Jones' main purpose was to say or do something that would incite violence.

    A Koran-burning New Jersey Transit worker, fired for his protest near Ground Zero last Sept. 11, is getting his job back - along with an extra $25,000 for his troubles. Derek Fenton, 40, will also collect back pay since his Sept. 13, 2010, dismissal for torching pages of the Muslim holy book on the site of a proposed lower Manhattan Islamic center, the Newark Star-Ledger reported.

    In a highly unusual case, a jury will decide — for the time being, at least — whether anti-Muslim Florida Pastor Terry Jones will be allowed to hold a protest outside the Islamic Center of America mosque in Dearborn on Friday evening. State Judge Mark Somers gave Jones the option of paying a $100,000 “peace bond” or face a jury to decide whether he can hold the protest without paying the bond. Jones refused to pay the bond and will go before a seven-member jury beginning at 8 am on Friday. Jones says he intends to hold the protest no...

    (Reuters) - A Detroit prosecutor has filed a petition in district court to stop a Florida fundamentalist Christian preacher, who recently caused riots in Afghanistan after he burned a Koran, from holding a rally outside a large Michigan mosque. Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said the threat of violence was too great to allow Terry Jones to hold the planned gathering on Friday near the Islamic Center of America -- the largest U.S. mosque -- in the heavily Muslim Detroit suburb of Dearborn. A hearing on Worthy's bid to block Jones and his supporters from holding the rally at the...

    It is amazing, but not surprising, to watch our government’s reaction to last month’s Koran burning by Florida Pastor Terry Jones. The indignant outrage expressed by everyone from Barack Obama on down only made me shake my head, because those same people made such a stupid big deal out of the burning of that stupid book, yet they think nothing of their own actions that effectively burn the Constitution of the United States of America. What we think about Mr. Jones’ actions does not really matter, because in America, he has the right of free expression and free speech, as...

    A man who burned a Koran in front of city centre shoppers in Carlisle is due to be sentenced. Andrew Ryan, 32, took out a copy of the holy book from Carlisle library and then set it on fire with a lighter as a crowd gathered to hear his protests. Police arrested Ryan, of Summerhill, Carlisle, shortly after the lunchtime incident in English Street on January 19. He pleaded guilty to religiously aggravated harassment and theft at an earlier hearing. Ryan was released on bail last month as the case was adjourned for pre-sentence reports. Sentencing will take place at...

    F. Scott Fitzgerald said that the ability to hold two contradictory ideas in the mind simultaneously was a mark of genius. If that were true, the U.S. government must be full of geniuses. Consider: it was just a week or two ago that everyone from Sen. Lindsey Graham (R., sort of, SC) to Gen. David Petraeus and Sec. of State Hillary Clinton loudly condemned the Rev. Terry Jones for presiding over his Koran barbecue. Burning a holy book, you see, was hateful, intolerant, and extremely disrespectful. That’s how General Petraeus put it: “hateful, intolerant, extremely disrespectful.” For his part, Sen....

    A new video at the website AnsweringMuslims.com expatiates on this contradiction: 1. “You don’t burn the Koran, because if you do, Muslims might go on a killing spree.” 2 “You do burn the Bible, because if you don’t, Muslims might go on a killing spree.”

    A week ago Bobby Ghosh, a world news editor at Times Magazine, was on MSNBC’s Hardball program. Chuck Todd, a Democrat operative and communications professional, was the substitute host for Chris Matthews. Mr. Ghosh, a native Indian, is considered a specialist on Islamicphobia in the states. He writes many articles about Islam and the Middle East. One of the things they discussed was the Muslim belated reaction to the Florida preacher’s burning of the Qur’an (Koran). Mr. Ghosh remarked that the Qur’an was a direct “transcription” of God’s word where as the Bible was written by men. Because the Qur’an...
