    We must take back our Constitution and reverse the perverse interpretations by lawyers of the Charter for Rights and Freedoms so that all children in Canadian schools learn how to get along with one another in a secular world For those who many not be aware, there is in Canada a separation between mosque and state. Our public school system is secular. As in non-religious affiliated. Except on Ontario where we have a Catholic system that dates back to the BNA Act of 1867. The beauty of Canada is that all religions are treated equally. No one religious group getting...

    There is no excuse for what Michael Wolfe did. He is guilty of being hateful and stupid, and committing armed burglary and criminal mischief. He should be sentenced accordingly. In Portland, Mohamed Mohamud attempted to commit jihad mass murder at a Christmas Tree lighting ceremony. He got thirty years in prison, and his lawyers are claiming that sentence was draconian and should be reduced. Michael Wolfe should get life in prison for bacon while Mohamed Mohamud gets thirty years for attempted mass murder?

Can you see the Obama administration blowing up a Muslim prayer hall here in America, even if it were filled with explosives? Never. The Democrats, the party of treason, would wail about “religious freedom.” This is why mosques must be monitored, and not just for explosives, arms and munitions. But we must require US mosques to institute transparent, inspectable programs teaching against the...

According to the recent reporting Hillary Clinton’s State Department did not investigate the Orlando killers Mosque because it “unfairly singled out Muslims.” Which is more staggering proof that the lefts ideology of political correctness is indirectly leading to innocent citizens being murdered.

    YONKERS, N.Y. (AP) -- After months of searching to find a home for their mosque, a Muslim group settled on a century-old, three-story Tudor in a leafy neighborhood of a New York suburb, a fixer-upper they say would be perfect with the right renovations. But not long after the sale went through last year, neighbors thought it was perfect just the way it was. A neighborhood group filed an application to have the building designated a city landmark and won final approval last month, meaning any exterior renovations will now have to go through a time-consuming permission process.

This sparked outrage with millions of Americans who found it to be a slap in the face to allow a mosque to be built near such hollowed ground. The man behind it all was Hashim Elzanaty who along with eight other investors purchased the location and set the plans in place. But a famous billionaire New Yorker stepped in to stop the development. He did this by offering Elzanty $6 million to purchase the property from him — a dollar amount...

The plan faces tough challenges, and some Palestinians fear Israel could use the cameras against them. Some Palestinians believe extremist Israelis are trying to gain control over the mosque, one of Islam's holiest sites. Jews are permitted to visit the mosque compound, but are not allowed to pray there. Jewish groups, sometimes accompanied by Israeli police, frequently force their way into the mosque compound, resulting in violent confrontations.

In documents uncovered by the BBC, the organisation's own publication suggests that both Ali and Hafiz Abdul Hamid, a leader at Edinburgh's Polwarth Mosque, had connections with SSP after it was banned. SSP was proscribed by the UK government in 2001 and then by the government of Pakistan in 2002 for violence against the Shi’a community.

    his one went by so fast that most of us seem to have missed it. This past weekend’s Saturday Night Live had not one but two Jewish jokes. One was moderately funny, notable mainly for the fact that it came from the mouth of Senator Bernie Sanders, during a back-and-forth with his doppelganger Larry David. The other, delivered by Weekend Update fake news co-anchor Michael Che, was far more pointed and may just have crossed a line. Here’s Che’s bit: “On his first visit to a U.S. mosque, President Obama called on U.S. television producers to create characters that are...

    If you seek to understand Barack Obama and his views, the best place to go is his speeches. But you have to read them in their entirety, not rely on hearing them or on the media's summary of them. When you do, you come to realize how often what Obama says is morally and intellectually confused and even untrue. The most recent example was his speech last week at a mosque in Baltimore. In addition to reassuring Muslim Americans that they are as American as Americans of every other faith -- a point that any president, Republican or Democrat, would...

    That President Obama told a series of brazen lies about Islam in his December 3 Baltimore speech is being well documented by experts on Islam. Obama bizarrely invented a new translation of the word “Islam” itself, saying incorrectly that the word comes from the same root as the Muslim word for peace — salam, as in, peace be with you. In fact, in Arabic, the word Islam means submission, not peace, meaning submission to Allah and the teachings of his prophet, Mohammad. Obama also misquoted Islamic scripture in parts of his speech, even going so far as to suggest that...
  • Trump Says Obama ‘Goes To A Mosque And Apologizes’ While Americans Are Targeted

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was critical of President Obama's visit to a Baltimore mosque during a Friday speech here in Florence, S.C., saying that the president "goes to a mosque and apologizes" as Americans are targeted by terrorists. "Where did they come from?" Trump asked as he spoke about the November terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, Calif., referencing the attackers who carried out the killings. "And then President Obama yesterday goes to a mosque and he apologizes. I mean, what's going on?" he added as the crowd booed.

    "To Muslim women's rights activists fighting for equal access to mosques as part of a broader campaign for reform — from equal education for women and girls to freedom from so-called 'honor killings', the president's visit to a mosque that practices such blatant inequity represents a step backwards." That was from Asra Q. Nomani and Ify Okoye in the New York Times. They were referring to President Obama's visit to the Islamic Society of Baltimore Wednesday, the first visit to a U.S. mosque he has made as president. Nomani and Okoye stood outside protesting the president's choice of venue. "While...

    If there was one word which could describe President Obama's Presidency (aside from failure, Progressive hell, and nightmare) it would be anti-Christian. From declaring that the United States is no longer a Christian nation to denying Syrian Christians entry into the country President Obama's distaste for the followers of Jesus are as obvious as the nose on your face. But with less than a year left in his Presidency Obama hasn't given up on dissing Christians at every opportunity. For example, President Obama gave a speech at a mosque in the Islamic Society of Baltimore on Wednesday. While standing...

    Real-estate mogul Donald Trump said on Wednesday that US President Barack Obama may have visited a Maryland mosque because "he feels comfortable there." During an interview with Greta Van Susteren, the Fox News host asked Trump about the visit. "President Obama went to a mosque today in Baltimore to talk about religious tolerance and to talk about the contributions Muslims have made in the United States," she said. "Your thoughts about that?" Trump, a Republican presidential candidate, said that although he didn't have much of an opinion about the issue, Obama could have visited somewhere else instead. "I don't have...
