    Authorities have ordered the closure of mosques and Islamic schools following a series of suicide bombing attacks in northern Cameroon that have left at least 60 people dead, the region's governor said Sunday. Child beggars are also being ordered off the streets because all the suicide bombers so far have been children, including the 13-year-old female who detonated explosives in an attack Saturday evening. ... In the latest attack inside Cameroon, at least 20 people were killed and another 85 wounded Saturday evening in the northern town of Maroua. The suicide bombing came just days after another attack there earlier...

    By Pamela Geller, Breitbart, July 19, 2015 The New York Times reported Thursday that “in the last two or three months,” the Chattanooga gunman Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez “had begun showing up rather regularly at Friday Prayer at the Islamic Society of Greater Chattanooga, a large mosque and cultural center, said Dr. Azhar S. Sheikh, a founding member of the center’s board.” “Dr. Sheikh said that he showed no signs of extremism. He said the family regularly worshiped at the mosque,” the NYT reported. What is being taught at that mosque? Are investigators simply going to assume that the mosque is...

    A prominent Muslim leader in France has suggested that thousands of the country's abandoned Catholic churches should be turned into mosques to accommodate the growing French Muslim population, which is the largest Muslim population in Europe. In a Monday interview with France's Europe 1 radio, Dalil Boubakeur, the president of the French Council of Muslim Faith and rector of the Grand Mosque in Paris, explained that there are only 2,500 mosques in France, with another 300 under construction, which falls short of being able to serve the nation's estimated 5 million Muslims. Boubakeur asserted that at least 5,000 mosques are...

    BOSTON (AP) — Boston's Muslim community has been once again thrust into the spotlight as the death penalty trial of convicted marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev nears its conclusion amid rising concerns of terrorist recruitment in America. Newspaper op-eds, advertisements and social media posts have highlighted connections between Boston-area mosques and terrorists and suspected terrorists, despite efforts locally to denounce them.

    Le Bourget (France) (AFP) - One of France's top Muslim leaders has called for the number of mosques to double over the next two years to remedy a shortage of places of worship for the country's millions of faithful. Speaking at a weekend gathering of French Islamic organisations, where participants asked for respect in the face of a rise in anti-Muslim attacks, Dalil Boubakeur said the 2,200 mosques in the country did not adequately represent Europe's largest Muslim community."We need double (that number) within two years," the head of the French Muslim Council and rector of the Paris mosque said...

    Houston is no stranger to burning mosques. In fact, there have been numerous mosques deliberately set ablaze in parts of Texas and other states over the past several years. One can only wonder when conservatives or “right-wingers” will be blamed for this latest tragedy without the slightest “smidgen” of proof? What is interesting is that it is clear that at least some people do not accept the official explanation for the recent tragic murders of three Muslims by one Craig Stephens Hicks over what is said to have been an ongoing parking dispute.

According to the report: Milan, January 22 – A regional government commission in the northern Lombardy region on Thursday approved a bill that would limit the opening of new, non-Catholic places of worship. The so-called anti-mosque bill submitted by the regionalist, anti-immigrant and anti-euro Northern League party of Governor Roberto Maroni would also impose security cameras in places of worship. The bill has sparked opposition from the center left and from civil liberties advocates. The bill specifically...

Slovakia is the country that had its commemorative Euro coin depicting two Christian saints, Cyril and Methodius, at first rejected by the European Commission, which told Bratislava it would need to re-design the coins and remove Christian symbols, including halos and a cross-adorned stole. Eventually the Slovakia Euro was issued with halos and crosses. This...

Metwally says he is concerned about the numbers that have spiked since the October 22, 2014 terror attack in Canada’s capital.

Although the Paris terrorist attack by Islamists has not been linked to any mosque, the historical record is dotted with similar attacks that have such links, including the Nov. 5, 2009, rampage at the Army base in Killeen, Texas, by Maj. Nidal Hasan that killed 13 and wounded 31 as the self-proclaimed "Soldier of Allah" shouted "Allahu...

Peter King told Newsmax TV on Wednesday. "The fact that we face an enemy that's going to be with us is as far as I can see.

    As the Islamic invasion advances, mosques are proliferating across the United States at breakneck speed. And there appears to be no end in sight. Since 9/11, the number of mosques in America has grown by 75%. The timing of this is no coincidence. Mosques are a symbol of Islamic supremacism. Islam attacks. Then it plants a triumphal mosque on the battlefield. And another. And another. And another. The proliferation of mosques is also a sign of our incomprehensible response (or lack thereof) to the threat of Islam. War has been waged against the United States and what have we done?...

    A proposed mega-mosque in the pretty little town of Bridgewater, New Jersey, was rejected by the town council last year, “citing an ordinance that limited houses of worship to major roads.” Reasonable enough. Municipal officials argued that the purpose of the ordinance was to “preserve the residential character of its various neighborhoods.” But Islamic supremacists and Muslim Brotherhood organizations like CAIR called upon their lapdogs at the Department of Justice, who sued Bridgewater. The DoJ has become the de facto legal arm of terror-tied Muslim Brotherhood groups in this country. What small town can go up against the U.S. government’s...

    Jihad: In a major victory for homeland security and a major blow to Islamist apologists, a judge has ruled the NYPD's surveillance of mosques was a lawful effort to prevent terrorism, not a civil rights violation. Several radical Islamist front groups — including the Muslim Brotherhood-tied Muslim Students Association — accused the NYPD of violating their civil rights through a post-9/11 program that included infiltrating and monitoring mosques to gather intelligence on jihadists and disrupt terror plots. In 2011 they sued the police department to kill the program and collect damages. On Friday, a federal judge killed their lawsuit instead....

In an interview with the daily Komsomolskaya Pravda on Wednesday, Mr. Sobyanin said that Moscow has about two million foreign residents, the vast bulk of them migrant workers from former Soviet Central Asia who are mainly Muslim. The city's economy "could not manage without them," he admitted. But he insisted that the vast throngs of Muslims who fill Moscow streets and wait,...

I harshly attacked this concept; my take was that the world has an Islam problem, not an Islamophobia problem, and that claiming otherwise and slapping a happy face on the issue is insulting and pointless. The film’s producer and co-director Dean Obeidallah, who is also one of the featured comedians, unsurprisingly took...

The NYPD were shown to have investigated and surveilled thousands of innocent muslims. New documents reveal that the police department specifically designated a number of entire mosques as “terror organizations,” to enable greater surveillance. Lawsuits from the ACLU and other civil liberties groups contend that the tactics are at base unconstitutional, since a person can be treated as a potential terror suspect simply by virtue of attending a designated...

    First published on FrontPage Magazine. By Enza Ferreri Over the last weekend there have been two more street attacks on soldiers in Britain, one of which was fatal. On Saturday, the Yorkshire town of Barnsley in northern England honored soldiers with parades and celebrations for its Armed Forces Day. One of the soldiers, who had returned from the Falkland Islands just hours before, was brutally assaulted at around midnight when he was getting home. He was jumped from behind, knocked unconscious and then repeatedly stamped and kicked in the head and face, and left with a concussion, injuries and...

    Yesterday afternoon on Fox’s The Five, co-host Bob Beckel suggested that if it were up to him, there would be a temporary moratorium on new mosques built in the United States until we could verify who is or is not involved in terrorist activities. Beckel’s comments came in reaction to a story about an Islamic militant group called Boko Haram, which is suspected of having killed dozens of children at a school in Nigeria in a gruesome fashion this past weekend. “These guys are murderers,” Beckel asserted. “They’re terrorists. And if this is what the prophet told you to do,...
  • Every Mosque--In America, Too--Is A Military Base

    Muslim terrorists and their enablers like to complain about how America has military bases in Muslim countries. Even people such as half-crazy republican congressman Ron Paul constantly bring it up, erroneously blaming our global footprint for Islamic terrorist attacks against us (those of us who know history know better). Yet only rarely, and at the margins, is the truth pointed out that our enemy has thousands, literally thousands, of military bases here in the United States, and even more in Europe for that matter. Don’t just take my word for it, listen to Turkish prime minister Recep Erdogan, from a...

    The New York Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit on Tuesday against the New York Police Department over its surveillance of Muslim communities, accusing the police of trampling on religious freedoms and constitutional guarantees of equality. The surveillance by the NYPD's intelligence division has extended beyond New York City's five boroughs into neighboring New Jersey and other nearby states. The police department says that surveillance of Muslims is legal under an earlier federal court order. The lawsuit is the latest skirmish in an ongoing battle between the NYPD and civil liberties advocates over the department's aggressive policing tactics - including...

  • Imams of Sacramento's two biggest mosques declare music forbidden by Muhammad

    "It's a chain reaction – when people listen to music, they ask for alcohol, which will lead to adultery." Yep. Happens every time. "Music has magic, it gets in your blood and makes you want to get up and dance and forget your personality. Your butt is shaking and she's going to get up and her butt is going to shake – where is the religion then?" Where indeed? That's why Muhammad -- and Lenin -- hated music. Anyway, this Muslim music festival is going to go on, even though the imams are against music. But what is striking is...

    Homeland Insecurity: The White House assures that tracking our every phone call and keystroke is to stop terrorists, and yet it won't snoop in mosques, where the terrorists are. That's right, the government's sweeping surveillance of our most private communications excludes the jihad factories where homegrown terrorists are radicalized. Since October 2011, mosques have been off-limits to FBI agents. No more surveillance or undercover string operations without high-level approval from a special oversight body at the Justice Department dubbed the Sensitive Operations Review Committee. Who makes up this body, and how do they decide requests? Nobody knows; the names of...

    When the revelations first came out that the NSA was spying on Americans by collecting phone records from Verizon, the Obama administration has defended their actions. They have made the claim, repeatedly, that the program was vital in their efforts to stop terrorists from doing their deeds of destruction. They have made the same claim about PRIZM, the program that allows the federal government to search through Internet traffic. As they have made these claims, some of us have asked the obvious questions. If the programs are so vital in the efforts to stop terrorism, why did they fail to...

    The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has discussed its revamped security regulations with the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) in light of the murder of Drummer Lee Rigby, 25, in Woolwich, south-east London, which it said had even provoked attacks in the United States. The security improvements encouraged by CAIR, America's largest Muslim advocacy group, encourage the building of transparent fences around mosques, wire screens on windows, designated security officials, three-inch-thick doors, panic alarms and safe rooms. Ibrahim Hooper, a spokesman for CAIR, said: "From the outside it definitely seems UK mosques are more at risk than anywhere, including the...
