    Hong Kong officials apologized to Muslim leaders Monday after riot police sprayed a mosque and bystanders with a water cannon while trying to contain turbulent weekend pro-democracy demonstrations in the semi-autonomous Chinese territory. The city’s leader, Chief Executive Carrie Lam, and the police chief visited the Kowloon Mosque to apologize to the chief imam and Muslim community leaders. Officials were scrambling to minimize the fallout from Sunday’s incident at one of the city’s most well-known religious sites. The government said in a statement that Lam “extended an apology for the inadvertent spraying.” Authorities called it an accident, but a bystander’s...

    A 20-strong gang set upon four tree surgeons in Rochdale, England, calling them “white bastards” and cutting off a teenage worker’s hand with an axe. 27-year-old Habibur Rahman gathered the mob after the workers had stopped him from abusing an elderly woman. Rahman, incensed he had been “disrespected” on his “territory”, tracked the four workers to the property they were working on in the rape gang blighted city, blocking them by parking his car across the driveway while the mob approached armed with a claw hammer, knives, machetes, a knuckle-duster — and the fateful axe. “I am not going to...

    British police have marked “Hate Crime Awareness Week” with a series of childish online cartoons urging the public to report “hateful” behaviour “even if it isn’t a crime”, offering assurances that “you don’t even need evidence”. The cartoons, featuring exclusively white racists targeting non-white people, women in hijabs, and so on, were shared over the course of the week by Devon and Cornwall Police — which was recently exposed as having had to sack a number of constables, special constables, community support officers, and support staff for sexual misconduct. The fact that Devon and Cornwall Police only featured white people...

    Sweden: Muslim migrant assaults 21 random people, mostly women, “motive remains unclear” SEP 29, 2019 4:00 PM BY ROBERT SPENCER Here is a possible motive: “O you who have believed, fight those adjacent to you of the disbelievers and let them find in you harshness.” (Qur’an 9:123) But of course Swedish authorities, like authorities all over the West, know that such passages of the Qur’an never, ever incite Muslims to commit acts of violence against Infidels. Only the greasiest of Islamophobes would ever dare think otherwise. “Sweden: Military-aged Somali migrant arrested for assaulting 21 people,” by Arthur Lyons, Voice of...

    An American Airlines mechanic was arrested Thursday on a sabotage charge accusing him of disabling a navigation system on a flight with 150 people aboard before it was scheduled to take off from Miami International Airport earlier this summer. The reason, according to a criminal complaint affidavit filed in Miami federal court: Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani, a veteran employee, was upset over stalled union contract negotiations. None of the passengers and crew on the flight to Nassau were injured because the tampering with the so-called air data module caused an error alert as the pilots powered up the plane’s engines...

    TEL AVIV, May 15 (Reuters) - The Eurovision Song Contest has found few fans in a famous mosque in the Israeli host city, where worshippers have complained that the gaudy festivities are disrupting their observances of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. A "Eurovision Village" pavilion set up on the Tel Aviv beachfront to host parties is located directly opposite the century-old Hassan Bek mosque, named after an Ottoman governor and frequented by Israeli Arabs from nearby Jaffa. The 41-country songfest has been a focus of pro-Palestinian boycott calls, and some Muslims fasting daily as part of Ramadan resent the...

A Muslim convert, Rianne Ward” described herself as being left “distraught” after tasting a smoked bacon flavor in the vegetarian pasta sauce that she purchased from Aldi grocery chain in Derby. “She feared that she might have betrayed her religion by consuming pork”. Supermarket Aldi in Derby was left scrambling to contact the local media (Derbyshire Live) to reassure customers that there is no bacon in its veggie sauce; but now she expects compensation from...

    CBS2’s Greg Mills reports that mosques in our area have gone on high alert. This is an important time for those of the Islamic faith. The 30 days of Ramadan are just beginning. “It’s a month where we try to be better versions of ourselves. Both mentally, spiritually and physically,” says Qureshi. The holiday begins under the dark cloud of their fellow worshipers who share their faith and those of other faiths. Imam Quereshi has talked about what he called people who are isolated and have murder in mind. The Islamic Center has been also reaching out to synagogues, churches...

    An online job listing seeking a “Swiss” driver has caused outrage among members of Switzerland’s migrant community. An online job ad for Schärer Transport AG, a logistics company based in the canton of St. Gallen, has been called out for discrimination by Switzerland’s Federal Commission Against Racism (CFR). “By emphasizing the desire to hire a ‘Helvetian’ and eating pork slices and sausages, we can assume that certain specific groups of the population are excluded,” Alma Wiecken, head of CFR, told Swiss daily 20 Minutes in response to furore at the online job listing. The advert’s language also caused uproar among...

    Time for all Christians to convert to Islam. Anything else would “offend." Ibrahim Hooper, call your office: there was an outbreak of “Islamophobia” Monday at the Pennsylvania State Assembly. Luckily, Muslim state Rep. Movita Johnson-Harrell was there to blow the whistle on this bigotry and hatred. The “Islamophobia,” according to journalist Todd Starnes, was committed by another state Representative, Stephanie Borowicz, who prayed this to open a legislative session: “Jesus, you are our only hope. At the name of Jesus, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess Jesus, that you are Lord.” Johnson-Harrell was livid. The prayer, she...

    Authorities in Paris have launched an investigation after anti-Semitic graffiti was found Saturday sprayed across a bagel shop in the city's old Jewish quarter. The word "Juden," which is German for Jews, was discovered on the glass window of a Bagelstein chain as anti-government protesters and police forces clashed in other parts of the French capital. "The most filthy anti-Semitism in the streets of the city of light," government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux said on Twitter. The French League Against Racism and Anti-Semitism showed a photograph of the bagel shop graffiti alongside a photo of a Berlin shop in 1938 Germany...

    This is further proof of what I have explained for years. Accommodation to Muslim demands gives way to more demands, more submission. One prime example of this is what happened to Hertz. Hertz was exceedingly generous to their Muslim workers. And the Muslim response was an endless war of litigation and attrition. Hertz provided prayer rooms, rugs and prayer break times. Not good enough. Back in 2011, I reported that Hertz had was forced to suspend 35 Muslim workers because they were abusing their extra special “prayer break times” and refusing to clock out when praying. There was no way...

    Brotherhood-linked congressman publicly rejected Nation of Islam -- but it was all for show. After publicly repudiating his former colleagues at the Nation of Islam, DNC deputy chairman Keith Ellison dined with the group’s notorious leader Louis Farrakhan and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in 2013, according to reports. The jihadist-friendly Ellison, a Democrat congressman representing Minnesota, is a former co-chairman of the Communist-linked Congressional Progressive Caucus. Although Ellison was not a senior Democratic Party official in 2013, now that his DNC post makes him much more than a fringe figure in his party, the meeting takes on a greater, darker...

    As Canada continues to support and implement Sharia Law, as well as slam its opponents by calling them "Islamophobes," a deeper look into what Sharia Law entails is in order. Recently, the Canadian government's Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage completed a draft of its Motion M-103 report, which recognizes "the need to...condemn Islamophobia" and "take action" against "religious discrimination including Islamophobia." According to the Ontario Human Rights Commission Islamophobia includes "acts of intolerance and racial profiling" as well as "viewing Muslims as a greater security threat on an institutional, systemic and societal level." However, it is not clear that Canada's...

    St Thomas Werneth in Oldham has been given the green light to remove the pews so it is able to hold more events within the wider community. In a ruling last month, Geoffrey Tattersall QC said the church would be allowed to remove the pews as the proposals would have “major public benefit outweighing any harm resulting from the loss of the pews”. The area, which is close to Manchester, has an 88 per cent non White-British population. Its website encouraged people of all nationalities to attend the services. They said: “We usually have at least six nationalities represented in...
