  • Last Remaining Police Station in Migrant-Dominated Swedish Suburbs Forced to Close

    “The violence against us in the police and the paramedics and firefighters, has become much worse. We’re talking about stone throwing, violence, fires. It has become much worse in recent years,” Swedish police Sergeant Peter Larsson told Norwegian state broadcaster NRK. Police officers, who wished to remain anonymous, slammed the move, saying it will have a negative effect on residents. “It is terrible that we can’t be close to the citizens, and sad and shameful to move the police station,” a source told SVT. “It hurts to know that residents will not be able to get the help and support...

    A 22-year-old man accused of killing a Muslim teenager with a baseball bat in Virginia on Sunday is an undocumented immigrant who entered the United States illegally, federal authorities said on Tuesday. The man, Darwin Martinez Torres, who was charged with murder in the death of Nabra Hassanen, 17, is believed to be from El Salvador, an Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman said. The agency said it issued a so-called detainer on Monday with the Adult Detention Center in Fairfax, Va., where Mr. Torres is being held without bail, to keep him in custody in the event that he could...

    Labour MP Rushanara Ali has called for marches by extremist groups be banned – but only singled out right wing demonstrators in her call for legislation. The Labour Member of Parliament for Bethnal Green and Bow made the comments Monday evening during an appearance on Sky News. Ms. Ali referred specifically to the English Defence League and the far right group Britain First saying that demonstrations from both groups should be banned in London. Ali said that the government needed to “redouble their efforts” when it came to tackling extremism. “We have seen over the years many marches here in...

    On April 4, 2017, the US Senate passed Senate Resolution 118, "Condemning hate crime and any other form of racism, religious or ethnic bias, discrimination, incitement to violence, or animus targeting a minority in the United States". The resolution was drafted by a Muslim organization, EmgageUSA (formerly EmergeUSA) and the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC). On April 6, 2017, EmgageUSA wrote the following on their Facebook page: "Thanks to the hard work of Senator Marco Rubio, Senator Dianne Feinstein, Senator Susan Collins and Senator Kamala Harris we have achieved the approval of Senate Resolution 118, an anti-hate crimes bill drafted...

    A Davis woman has been sentenced to five years of probation for breaking windows and leaving bacon at a mosque near Sacramento. The Sacramento Bee reports that 30-year-old Lauren Kirk-Coehlo was sentenced Friday after pleading guilty in April. The graduate of UC Berkeley had been jailed since her arrest in mid-February. She admitted vandalizing the Davis Islamic Center in January, destroying six windows and two bicycles. Kirk-Coehlo had faced up to six years in prison after also admitting to a hate-crime allegation. Officials say she put bacon strips on door handles. Muslims are prohibited from eating pork products. {..snip..}

    And that number includes many non-Muslims. In this case, many Muslims didn’t show up because Muslim organizations refused to endorse the march, due to the involvement of the German Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. Sunni Muslims generally consider Ahmadiyyas as heretics or apostates. But this is not the first time that attendance at a Muslim rally against terrorism has been decidedly underwhelming. In July 2016, a much smaller than anticipated crowd showed up at a Muslims Against ISIS rally in Washington, D.C. There are thousands of Muslims in Dearborn, Michigan, but only 100 showed up for a rally against ISIS and “Islamophobia”...

    A 'liberal mosque' where all Muslims can pray together regardless of their gender, sexuality or branch of Islam has opened in Germany. The Ibn Rushd-Goethe mosque, which is housed inside a Protestant church in Berlin, is the first of its kind in the country. Sunni and Shiite believers are encouraged to preach alongside one another and women will not be allowed to wear veils.

    "We are our beliefs," it is said. Beliefs steer people in life. Some beliefs are harmless, some are the motive force for good, and yet others are delusional, misguided, and even outright dangerous. Every version of the belief called "Islam" ranges from the delusional to the dangerous. Islam is a Grand Hallucination, birthed by Muhammad's hallucination that he relayed to his first wife and employer, Khadija. Greatly frightened, he told Khadija that he was visited bya jinn (devil) in the Hira cave. Khadija comforted the distraught man by assuring him that the episode was Allah's way of choosing him as...

    Straight from the horse’s mouth. Shaikh Mohammad Tawhidi, an Australian imam, declared that under sharia law, it is “not a sin for a Muslim to kill a non-believer.” Tawhidi spoke to Daily Mail Australia and gave his take on the Saudi Arabia soccer team ignoring the moment of silence for the victims of the London Bridge terror attack before a recent World Cup game. “They did not stop for a moment of silence because according to Wahhabi Islam - which governs Saudi Arabia - it is not wrong or a sin for a Muslim to kill a non-Muslim,” the imam...

    On May 22, an Islamic suicide bomber detonated himself outside a pop concert in Manchester, England, killing and wounding dozens, many of them young children.The terrorist was a 22-year-old named Salman Abedi. A few days after the attack, I was reading an article about the mosque he attended—the Didsbury Mosque. “That’s funny,” I thought looking at the accompanying photo, “that doesn’t look like a mosque, it looks like a church.”Sure enough, as I discovered, the Didsbury Mosque was once the Albert Park Methodist Chapel. It had been bought by the local Syrian Muslim community and transformed into a Muslim...

    Recent acts of terror in Europe are the “new normal” — and surely coming soon to the United States, former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton ominously warned Sunday. Evildoers have stepped up attacks on soft targets — such as London Bridge, Manchester Arena and Bastille Day in Nice — in the past 12 months, making a similar terrorist strike on American soil inevitable, Bratton told “The Cats Roundtable.” {..snip..}

    Courtney Love Cobain went on a Twitter tirade this week on Linda Sarsour, calling the Muslim activist a fraud and fear-mongering liar after Sarsour raised more than $100,000 for Rahma Warsame, a Somali Muslim woman in Ohio who claims she was assaulted by a white supremacist male. Love called out Sarsour in a litany of tweets Wednesday, accusing the political activist of anti-Semitic fearmongering and calling her a “vile disgrace to women and all mankind.” According to Love, Sarsour is a fraud who is inciting anti-American rhetoric. She tweeted to Sarsour, “I have zero faith in you and your plight.”...

    Anti-Muslim protesters marching in Lower Manhattan Saturday were met by a larger group of counter-protesters who drowned them out with chants of their own. The two sides squared off in Foley Square, where ACT for America, a lobbying organization opposed to Muslim immigration, organized a “March against Sharia” - part of a series of nationwide marches the group organized Saturday. About 100 demonstrators carrying signs with anti-Islamic slogans — one reading simply “NO MORE MUSLIMS” — shouted against Sharia law, which ACT for America argues is threatening the United States. The organization is designated by the Southern Poverty Law Center...

    THE family of the man accused of carrying out a terror attack at Notre Dame cathedral have said the terror suspect is "not an extremist". Farid Ikken, 40, was shot in the chest as he lunged at a police officer outside the world-famous cathedral on Tuesday afternoon and is currently under guard at a Paris hospital. The Algerian journalist reportedly shouted “this is for Syria” as he attacked a police officer with a hammer outside the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. A video of the suspect pledging allegiance to Islamic State (ISIS) was later found in his flat in the...

    Late last month, the Manchester bombing left 22 dead and 59 injured. Last weekend, another 7 were killed and 48 injured in London by a truck and knife attack. It was yet another example of Muslim terrorists killing people. President Trump in his tweets over the last couple days has pushed against the London mayor's claim that there is “no reason to be alarmed” and the need for “extreme vetting” of those from seven high-risk countries. Clearly, the vast majority of Muslims live their lives in peace and are great neighbors. But that can’t take away from radical Muslims being...
  • Maine high school is apparently first in U.S. to get sports hijabs

    Muslim student athletes at one U.S. high school no longer have to be slowed down by worries that their headscarves might fall off. Deering High School in Portland, Maine, is providing sport hijabs with the goal of making Muslim girls comfortable - and boosting their participation in sports. The lightweight scarves stay put and are less bulky than other hijabs, garments that cover the hair and are worn by many Muslim women to express their faith. "We're more confident on the field," said junior lacrosse player Fadumo Adan. "This one doesn't fall off. No matter what I do, it won't...
