    Fewer rapes have been solved in Sweden so far in 2017 than by the same stage a year before, new figures from the country’s National Council on Crime Prevention (Brå) suggest. Brå’s preliminary figures for the first six months of 2017 show that only eight percent of rapes investigated by police this year have been solved (meaning 302 have been solved), down from 12 percent at the same stage a year before, when 354 were solved. Police say they want to do more, but complain that limited resources are hampering their cause. According to Brå’s researcher on sex crimes, there...

    As if he weren’t already committed enough to foolish false charity and willful ignorance regarding the jihad threat, Pope Francis on Wednesday met in the Vatican with Dr. Muhammad bin Abdul Karim Al-Issa, the secretary general of the Muslim World League (MWL), a group that has been linked to the financing of jihad terror.

    HOW OTHERS SEE IT   The anti-immigration AfD party is set for its best-ever national election Sunday, largely due to its popularity in the former East Germany. There, voters say they were left behind during reunification – and resent efforts to integrate immigrants while they still feel like second-class citizens. GROSSDUBRAU, GERMANY—“Traitor!” “Merkel, out!” The anger, boos, and whistles greeting Angela Merkel in Germany’s east earlier this month are not the sort of reception many outside observers expect the country’s popular chancellor to receive. But not so for people like Regina Bernstein, who lives near this small village of 4,200...

    Last Wednesday the Bavarian interior ministry released statistics that made for sobering reading. In the first half of 2017 some 685 sex crimes were recorded in Bavaria, a rise of 48 percent on the same period in 2016. Of these crimes, 126 had suspects who had arrived in Germany as asylum seekers. The figures showed that sex crimes with asylum seekers as suspects jumped by 91 percent in a year. While the large majority (71 percent) of suspects were Germans, people who had come to the country seeking asylum made up 11 percent of all suspects, a figure disproportionate to...

    KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) – Malaysia has canned an annual craft beer festival after an Islamist party warned it would turn the city into “the biggest centre of vice in Asia”. Drinking alcohol is common among the large ethnic minorities in Muslim-majority Malaysia but there have been a growing number of protests against activities and events seen as un-Islamic by politicians and hardliners. The Better Beer Festival, billed as Malaysia’s biggest craft beer festival, was due to take place on October 6 and 7 at a shopping mall on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur. But last week the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party...

    Shumaila Shah knows how to cook her husband's favorite dish the way one might say the Pledge of Allegiance. "Cook onions, tomatoes, garlic and ginger crushed together," she said, articulating something so familiar it didn't need words, English or Punjabi. "Salt, pepper, garam masala. Put meat in and add water to make a gravy. Cook until the meat is soft, not tough." How long? She thinks for a moment. "A half-hour; it depends on the meat," she said. "Then add the potatoes, because they take a shorter time to cook. We eat it with naan." The recipe for her aloo...

    ISIS has claimed responsibility for the London terror attack, according to reports. The group’s official Amaq news agency has announced that a “detachment” was behind Friday’s explosion on a packed subway train. “The bombing of the IED in the London tube was carried out by a unit affiliated to the Islamic State,” the agency said, according to the Independent. The group cited security sources, though terror analysts warned that the claim could be a ruse.

    British Prime Minister Theresa May lashed out at President Trump for suggesting in a tweet that Friday’s London subway terrorist had been known to police. May said that his assertion was not “helpful” and that authorities were still investigating the “full circumstances” surrounding the attack, which injured at least 22 people. In his tweetstorm, Trump referred to the attacker as a “loser terrorist.” “These are sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard. Must be proactive!” he said. “Loser terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner. The internet is their main recruitment tool...

    Swedish officials have released a new "sex guidebook" aimed at tackling the rising number of sexual assaults committed by newly arrived migrants. "We have seen a great need for young people to get more knowledge and a great need among the adults to get help and support in how to talk about these issues," Youth and Civil Affairs Authority Director General Lena Nyberg explained, according to Metro. The guidebook, which is titled "Youmo in Practice," talks on the subjects of sex education, health, gender issues, women's rights, consent, and explains that it's illegal to rape women. Nyberg added that migrants,...

    Huma Abedin's mother told then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton not to talk about sensitive issues like the prohibition on women drivers in Saudi Arabia, just before Clinton gave a speech at a Saudi women's college. "Do not even mention driving for women!" Saleah Abedin wrote in an email to Clinton. "The last visitor received a torrent of rejoinders from the students who said they have more important challenges to contend with." Saleah Abedin lectures on sociology issues at Dar Al Hekma, a women's college in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, where Clinton gave a speech in February of 2010. Her daughter Huma...

    Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar are facing a catastrophic humanitarian situation, according to the UN secretary general. Antonio Guterres said alleged attacks by security forces on Rohingya villagers were completely unacceptable. The army says it is fighting militants and denies targeting civilians. Later the UN Security Council called for urgent steps to end the violence. Some 379,000 Rohingyas have fled to Bangladesh since violence began last month. Whole villages have burned down. The Rohingya, a mostly Muslim minority in the Buddhist-majority Rakhine state, have long experienced persecution in Myanmar, which says they are illegal immigrants. They have lived in Myanmar, also...

    In the picture, he departs from this earth like an arrow. Although he has not chosen his fate, he appears to have, in his last instants of life, embraced it. If he were not falling, he might very well be flying. He appears relaxed, hurtling through the air. He appears comfortable in the grip of unimaginable motion. He does not appear intimidated by gravity's divine suction or by what awaits him. His arms are by his side, only slightly outriggered. His left leg is bent at the knee, almost casually. His white shirt, or jacket, or frock, is billowing free...

    As Sharia continues to descend over the Internet. Remember Google’s old motto, “Don’t be evil”? It sounds so ironic now, with the social media giants all rushing to implement Sharia blasphemy restrictions and choke off all criticism of Islam. Twitter is working so hard to do this that it should adopt a new motto: “Be evil.” Twitter certainly lives by that motto. It lets stand open death threats against me. It censors content to suit Iran’s Islamic authorities. It has flagged as “hateful” tweets stating the fact that Islam is not a religion of peace and reporting accurately about anti-Semitic...

    Libertarianism.org, a project from the Cato Institute, claimed “Islamic teachings are consistent [with] many libertarian principles, such as tolerance, property rights & individualism” in a tweet on Tuesday. In the post linked in the tweet, Libertarianism.org also praised Ibn Khaldun as a libertarian hero, describing him as “the most consistent of the many free-market economists in Islamic history,” despite the fact that Khaldun promoted slavery. “Therefore, the Negro nation are, as a rule, submissive to slavery, because [Negroes] have little [that is essentially] human and have attributes that are quite similar to those of dumb animals, as we have stated,”...

    The hijab and abaya have taken centre stage on the New York runway as up-and-coming Indonesian designers kicked off an increasingly diverse fashion week, hoping to change prejudices in the west. “We’re not oppressed and we just want to show the world that we still can be beautiful and stylish with our hijab on,” said designer Dian Pelangi, 26, who has 4.8 million followers on Instagram. She was one of five Indonesian designers who presented collections at the show in Chelsea on the first day of fashion week. Two of the five fell into the category “modest fashion” – in...

    The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday rejected the Trump administration's limited view of who is allowed into the country under its revised travel ban. A three-judge panel decided that grandparents, cousins and similarly close extended family relationships of people in the U.S. shouldn't be prevented from coming to the country. The court also said refugees already accepted by a resettlement agency shouldn't be banned. The appeals court decision upholds a decision from a district court judge in Hawaii, who said the administration's view was too narrow. The decision impacts the revised travel ban, which temporarily suspends new...

    ISIS uses prisoners in Iraq as 'human guinea pigs' as it searches for deadlier toxins. Islamic State is reportedly telling its operatives in the West to carry out terrorist attacks by poisoning food items in supermarkets, Israeli media reports. The terrorist tactic of “contaminating food could be used on a larger scale in attacks on the West” was also independently confirmed by the Italian news agency ANSA. Islamic State was allegedly testing various poisons on prisoners in Iraq to come up with deadlier methods of food contamination. “ISIS fanatics could be targeting British and U.S. shops after the terror group...
