    The militant group Islamic State (Isis) has ordered all girls and women in and around Iraq's northern city of Mosul to undergo female genital mutilation, the United Nations says. The "fatwa" issued by the Sunni Muslim fighters would potentially affect 4 million women and girls, the UN resident and humanitarian coordinator in Iraq, Jacqueline Badcock, told reporters in Geneva by videolink from Irbil.

Benedicte Bjoernland, the head of Norwegian security service PST, said the agency has received "reliable information" from a foreign partner about some kind of attack "within days." "It was unspecific about what the target might be," Bjoernland said, adding PST has no information about how or when such an attack would take place. (snip)

    A report into the so-called Trojan Horse plot to takeover schools in Birmingham has found a "determined effort" to implement radical Islam. The comments came from the newly appointed Education Secretary Nicky Morgan, who made a statement on the subject in the House of Commons today. The review was ordered by the Morgan's predecessor Michael Gove, following reports that as many as twenty-five Birmingham schools had been the subject of takeovers. In each case, the governing bodies were infiltrated by radicals who then set about pushing out moderate teachers and implementing radical Islam. Today's report makes clear that the allegations...

    World wide experience has established that when an area that has not had Muslims living in it begins to be flooded by Muslims, violence ensues. The rough progression of Muslim population growth and its correlation to violent attacks on non-Muslims starts when they reach a population percentage of about five percent. At that plateau they begin to stir and organize. Shortly thereafter they start to make demands on the non-Muslim population as if they have always been there and are a historically oppressed minority. They will begin to patrol the streets in seemingly aimless patterns which in reality are far...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Shortly after the Sunni militant group the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) retook control of Raqqa earlier this year, it created the al-Khansaa' Brigade, an all-female unit operating in the city. Its purpose is to apprehend civilian women in Raqqa who do not follow the organization's strict brand of Sharia law, including a mandate that all women be fully covered in public and that they be accompanied by a male chaperone. "We have established the brigade to raise awareness of our religion among women, and to punish women who do not abide by the law," says Abu Ahmad,...

    When U.S. troops invaded Iraq in 2003, there were at least 1.5 million Christians in Iraq. Over the last ten years, significantly in the last few months with the emergence of ISIS, that figure has dropped to about 400,000. In a region where Christians predate Muslims by centuries, over one million Christians have been killed or have had to flee because of jihadi persecution, while America is basically standing by and watching. This is the sad news that Breitbart’s National Security Editor and one of the world’s leading experts on asymmetric warfare, Dr. Sebastian Gorka, brought to Breitbart News Saturday,...

    Americans feel warm toward Jews, Catholics and Evangelicals but they are colder toward Muslims and atheists, according to a new Pew Research Survey. Respondents were asked to rate each faith group according to a "feeling thermometer" ranging from 0 to 100, 0 reflecting the coldest and most negative rating and 100 being the warmest, most positive. The outcome concluded that U.S. adults are more fond of individuals who share their same or similar faith.

    The phrase “The Religion of Peace” is a lie perpetrated by Islamists and repeated over and over by cowardly western politicians in an effort to avoid confronting Sharia’s seventy century savages. When you hear the phrase, “The Religion of Peace,” remember that “The Religion of Peace” is run by Sharia Law. To understand what people who are not born Muslims, especially women, are walking into consider these features of Sharia Law that are never mentioned to prospective converts. Also keep in mind what you are about to read pertains to YOU as well. Sharia Law presumes even non- Muslims will...

    The irrevocable Islamic and Koranic injunction upon all Muslims is to wage relentless war against any non-Muslim nation state that exists within what Islam decrees as the Dar al-Islam (the House of Islam). Wherever the Muslim foot has trod triumphal in the name of Allah, that territory is considered eternally Islamic land. If it is lost, then it enters the Dar al-Harb (the House of War) and must be retaken and the population either forcibly converted to Islam, forced into dhimmi degradation, or exterminated.

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been declared the caliph, an earthly successor to Muhammad who will rule over the Islamic state.

    Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), sent a message to his fellow Sunni supporters to commemorate the Muslim holiday of Ramadan. Baghdadi wrote: Soon, by Allah’s permission, a day will come when the Muslim will walk everywhere as a master, having honor, being revered, with his head raised high and his dignity preserved. Anyone who dares to offend him will be disciplined, and any hand that reaches out to harm him will be cut off. The ISIS leader showed a willingness to blame the Jews for "mobilizing" the international community against his...

    Roberto Cavalli ad featuring British model Georgia May Jagger with an H-like symbol on her neck has caused uproar among Sufi Muslims who say the ad “degrades” one of its religious symbols, The Independent reported on Monday. The ad, which promotes the designer's fragrance, showed the model posing in her underwear with the H-like emblem, similar to the one used by Sufi Muslims to refer to God, on her wrist and neck. Many protesters gathered in front of London’s department store Harrods in response to the ad, according to the report. Other protests took place in Chicago as part of...

    Armin RosenJune 30, 2014 Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has promised a strong response to the killing of three Israeli teens abducted from a highway junction outside of the West Bank settlement of Kfar Etzion on June 12. The Israeli security cabinet is meeting to weigh possible responses to the teens' murders. Netanyahu ordered an extensive air campaign in the Gaza Strip in late 2012 in response to rocket attacks originating in the Hamas-controlled coastal area. While the campaign resulted in the deaths of several high-ranking Hamas operatives, including Hamas military chief Ahmed Jabari, the campaign ceased amid international pressure...

    Caliphate ("succession" in Arabic) is an institution first created in the 7th century after the death of the prophet Muhammad. Now revived by the jihadists of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isis), this old-new political-religious entity has been given its own hashtag, #CaliphateRestored – a potent weapon in a digital propaganda war. Isis has shown itself to be a slick media operator in addition to its battlefield successes in Syria and Iraq. Other memorable hashtags –#SykesPicotOver and #BringbackmyHumvees – have encapsulated its achievements in erasing "artificial" colonial borders and humiliating both the US and Nouri al-Maliki, Iraq's...

    This week Americans will be celebrating our nation’s Independence Day. This 4th of July has a special meaning for Americans and virtually no meaning for a majority of liberal Democrats. July 4th is a tough time for liberals because they must once again be reminded of the fact that they are enjoying the blessings of a country they hate. A Fox poll has found that 60% of self-identified strong liberals (read Democrats) said they do not “often feel proud to be American.” Since the political party of these ungrateful swine is the Democrat Party it is not difficult to accept...

The Church of St. John parish, built in 1886, closed in 2013. It reopened Friday as the Darul-Uloom Islamic Center, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported (http://bit.ly/1z0o5In ). "There are a lot of East Africans in the area, and we want to give them a place to worship, a place to be educated, a community space," center spokesman Feisal M. Elmi said. The former church held...

    On behalf of the American people, Michelle and I extend our best wishes to Muslim communities here in the United States and around the world on the beginning of the blessed month of Ramadan. A time for self-reflection and devotion through prayer and fasting, Ramadan is also an occasion when Muslims around the world reaffirm their commitment to helping the less fortunate, including those struggling because of economic hardship and inequality.  Here in the United States, we are grateful to the many Muslim American organizations, individuals, and businesses that are devoted to creating opportunity for all by working to reduce...
