    CIA Director John Brennan said Sunday that releasing the 28 classified pages from the 9/11 Commission report would be a mistake because they contain inaccurate, un-vetted information that could be used to tie Saudi Arabia to the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

    FULL TITLE: Sikh man pulled off Greyhound bus after being falsely accused of terror bomb threat - before being held for 30 hours by police and photographed without his turban A Sikh man is demanding authorities bring charges against a woman who falsely accused him of making a bomb threat and led to him being pulled off a Greyhound bus at gunpoint, detained for 30 hours and photographed without his turban.

    reuters ^ | 4/30/16
    A Muslim prayer hall was seriously damaged by fire overnight in the capital of the French island of Corsica, local authorities said, four months after a separate Muslim prayer hall there was ransacked. No one was injured in the fire in Ajaccio, which police are investigating as criminal after finding two separate sources of fire inside the hall. "This is unacceptable," Ajaccio mayor Laurent Marcangeli told iTELE newschannel. "Those sites are not sufficiently protected." In late December, the island was rocked by days of racial tension after firemen in Ajaccio were attacked on a housing estate with a large immigrant...

    MUMBAI (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - The leader of the only South Asian Muslim community known to practice female genital mutilation (FGM) came under criticism on Friday by campaigners who accused him of urging followers to continue the centuries-old custom. Little is known about FGM in India, where it is carried out in great secrecy by the close-knit Dawoodi Bohra community, a Shi'ite Muslim sect thought to number over 1 million that considers the practice to be a religious obligation. An audio clip of Syedna Muffadal Saifuddin's speech at a mosque in Mumbai, has been authenticated by several members of the...

In an interview with the pan-Arab Al-Hayat newspaper, Phares said Trump “is certainly not a racist” and blamed his “lack of expertise in politics” for making comments that are interpreted as racist and fascist towards Arabs and Muslims. “He is certainly not a racist and nothing on a personal level shows that he is,” Phares said of Trump. “The opposite is true, a number large of the employees in...

Dutt, known for her soft spot for Muslims in her own country of India, ...

    Most Americans say they believe in God. And around the world, religious Jews, Christians, and Muslims all say they believe in God, as do many people who do not identify with any formal religion. But this statement is actually meaningless. To cite but one example, the God in whose name Muslims cut innocent people’s throats and rape women cannot be the same God as the God of those who believe that God hates such actions. Who, then, argues that all those who say they believe in God believe in the same God? Two groups make this argument. The first consists...

They told Parra that she should consider abortion. “I reminded the doctor that I was 32 weeks,” she explained. “But the doctor said that my baby was considered defective and that you can terminate up to 38 or maybe 39 weeks. I told her, no, termination wasn’t an option. We were going to continue the pregnancy.” Parra was determined to help her daughter anyway...

(Reuters/Kham)Third-grade level students attend class at the Mashal Model School on the outskirts of Islamabad, Pakistan. "Pakistan's public school textbooks contain deeply troubling content that portrays non-Muslim citizens as outsiders, unpatriotic, and inferior; are filled with errors; and present widely-disputed historical 'facts' as settled history," said Robert George in a press release.

Their effort only proves once again that however bad the facts, some people remain so sectarian that they will continue to blame everything except the problem for the problem (‘How dare that bigoted polling company discover our dirty laundry?’) But in some ways the Phillips piece is most important for what he himself admits. Among other things Phillips confesses that Britain has for years been telling itself a lie in relation to its Muslim populations – not least in pretending that they...

Though the assailant did not physically harm the two, he remained in the area and yelled anti-Semitic remarks to other passers-by. The two teens quickly called Shomrim, the local Jewish neighborhood watch organization, for help. Police officers arrested the man for disturbing the public order with racially aggravating circumstances. He has not been identified and is only described as...

    Anti-terror police have launched an investigation after it emerged that the head of religious events at Glasgow Central Mosque, Sabir Ali, held senior positions in the UK branch of the group Sipah-e-Sahaba (SSP) – an organisation responsible for terrorist atrocities in Pakistan. 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.

    Last week’s attacks in Brussels show that Islamic State has built up a sophisticated network of terrorists that goes well beyond Al-Qaida’s capabilities. It is now able to strike using sleepers who have not yet been identified by security officials. […] Testimony from deserters suggests the terror organization began establishing sleeper cells in multiple European countries early on, in Turkey in particular. According to the former IS fighters, they are made up of men who aren’t on any watch lists. This enables IS to elude the vulnerability suffered by many based in Europe — namely that they are known terrorists....

How has Singapore been able to do this without ethnic cleansing and without receiving a single human-rights violation complaint from the UN or that notorious Multinational Muslim Mafia OIC? Simple, the Chinese-Buddhist-dominated Singaporean Government uses two pronged approach: (1) Strict non-immigration policy for Muslims (2) Strict legal prohibition of interfaith-marriages between Muslim men and non-Muslim women in Singapore.
