    I like to refer to Islam as equivalent to the Manson Family on a global scale. Just how accurate is that? Let’s take a look. Ali Sina is a renowned ex-Muslim author, and founder of FaithFreedom.org. He writes, “I see Muhammed as a psychopath and Allah was nothing but his own alter-ego. He invented this bugaboo deity to fool people and ride them. Allah is no god and even if he was, Muhammed did not receive any revelations from him. Muhammed was a deranged man. He concocted this whole lie to fool people. He was no different than Jim Jones,...

    It's getting hard to keep up with all these Koran inspired atrocities that have nothing to do with Islam. We know they have nothing to do with Islam because our politicians keep telling us that and they are all Islamic scholars. (They are, aren't they?) Yes, the violence is coming exclusively from Muslims but only because their religion, the one that has nothing to do with Islam, tells them to kill unbelievers -- meaning the people who don't follow the religion with a knife to our throat that has nothing to do with Islam. It's true that the more Muslims...

    It appears we are facing a hard decision. Whenever major conflict arises leading to death and destruction, many people wisely opt to try and stay out of the conflict. However, when we begin to see that those who will not submit to Islam (redundant) or reject Islam are murdered in cold blood, then one has to make a decision: Either one must submit to Islam or one must stand up and fight against those who support that evil cult belief. As Emiliano Zapata astutely said many years ago (a statement Charlie Hebdo borrowed), "Mejor morir de pie que vivir de...

    WASHINGTON D.C. — In September 2005, the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten published 12 editorial cartoons critical of Islam — most of which depicted the Muslim prophet, Muhammad. By February 2006, protests were erupting around the world over those dozen cartoons. Between February and May of that year, nearly 200 people died because of the outrage stoked over those cartoons. The uprising brought to the forefront real questions about speech and the nature of free expression. Questions like whether free societies should draw boundaries around free speech and if yes, where? Why should Muslims be the only sect immune from offense? Can...

    Today’s terror attack on Charlie Hedbo, the irreverent French satirical magazine that was one of the few media outlets in France to publish the original “Mohammed cartoons,” is an attempt by Islamic fundamentalists to enforce shari’a worldwide, even on non-Muslims. We must not let them succeed. Self-censoring out of fear means self-imposition of shari’a (Islamic law). Self-censoring out of “respect” (actually just a euphemism for fear) means you are submitting to the terrorists’ worldview. The way to overcome them in this instance is to overwhelm them with disrespect and mockery. They can silence one magazine, but they can’t silence the...

    WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — The White House criticized French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in 2012 for publishing cartoons mocking the Prophet Muhammad. Then White House Press Secretary Jay Carney questioned the magazine’s judgment after publishing images of Muhammad naked. “We are aware that a French magazine published cartoons featuring a figure resembling the Prophet Muhammad, and obviously we have questions about the judgment of publishing something like this,” Carney told reporters in September 2012. Carney stated that the images would be “deeply offensive to many and have the potential to be inflammatory.”

    At the risk of being presumed rather caustic–especially considering the heinous acts perpetrated against the Copts this past weekend–I offer this tidbit from St. Thomas Aquinas on Islam. On the other hand, those who founded sects committed to erroneous doctrines proceeded in a way that is opposite to this. The point is clear in the case of Mohammed. He seduced the people by promises of carnal pleasure to which the concupiscence of the flesh goads us. His teachings also contain precepts that were in conformity with his promises, and he gave free rein to carnal pleasure. In all this, as...

But in a story on Monday, Israeli daily Haaretz disputed the accuracy of that data – because it ignores the names of infants born in the Arab sector.

    The Islamic Jihad Conquest Formula By Matthew Bracken August, 2014 Mohammed’s unchanging formula for conquest is time-proven; variations were also used in history by the invading Mongol hordes among others. Emissaries ride forward of their advancing armies, offering to spare the lives of the targeted population in return for their unconditional surrender and explicit submission to their new rulers. In the Islamic context this submission is exemplified by the fresh converts repeating the Shahada prayer before Muslim witnesses. There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is his messenger. The Shahada prayer is the first of the Five Pillars of...

    Some barricaded themselves in storerooms, while others hid in boxes or even played dead. All were fleeing the bloody massacre unfolding around them as they saw terrified fellow shoppers mercilessly executed after being singled out as non-Muslim.

Others fled and sought refuge in shops, bank vaults and store rooms as grenades exploded and bullets fired around them. The fortunate ones managed to emerge blood-splattered and

    More and more people join the crowd as they push me towards the home of the village headman. I recognize the house — it’s the only one that has a garden with grass growing in it. They throw me to the ground. The village imam speaks to me: “I’ve been told you’ve insulted our Prophet. You know what happens to anyone who attacks the holy Prophet Mohammed. You can redeem yourself only by conversion or death.” “I haven’t done anything! Please! I beg you! I’ve done nothing wrong!”
