    The Islamist Felicity Party (Turkish: Saadet Partisi) organized the “Great Jerusalem demonstration” on July 30 in Istanbul. This event attended by thousands of people who condemned Israel following the recent incidents on the Temple Mount.The demo quickly turned into an anti-Israel and anti-Jew hate fest in which several Islamic activists delivered harsh speeches against the Jewish State. Mustafa Koylu, the head of the Cansuyu Association, said, “You have to do one thing so that those who do not see Turkey as a man and as a state will think once again. Open Hagia Sophia to [Muslim] worship! Open it! If...

    President Donald Trump desperately needs us all to know how important the battle against terrorism is to him. He tells us in speeches that he's "working night and day to keep our nation safe from terrorism." He flexes his Twitter fingers after any act of terror allegedly caused by a Muslim person hits nearly anywhere around the globe. But when an act of extremism appears to have been carried out against the Muslim community in the United States, he serves up radio silence. At around 5 a.m. on August 5, a bomb exploded at the Dar Al Farooq Islamic Center...

    Abbas spoke on Sunday about his decision to sever ties with Israel until it reverses its decision to place metal detectors at the entrance to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, saying that his decision includes the security coordination with the Jewish state. "We announced an unequivocal stance, especially regarding the security coordination," Abbas said. "This decision is not at all easy, but the Israelis ought to know that they are going to be the ones who will ultimately lose, because we do a lot to defend their security and ours. We are convinced that terror must be fought everywhere, but...

    The mosque became notorious when Abu Hamza al-Masri became the imam in 1997. Hamza, who had one eye and no hands and used hook devices, lied that the injuries were suffered when he fought for al-Qaeda against Russian forces in Afghanistan. He preached a strict interpretation of Islamic law and was outspoken about acts of terrorism. In a sermon he spoke about the need for Jihad: Allah likes those who believe in Him who kill those who do not believe in Him. Allah likes that. So if you Muslims dont like that because you hate the blood, there is something...
