    Readers' Forum African Americans, slavery and Islam Many African Americans in the United States have renounced Christianity and embraced Islam, in protest against the enslavement of their ancestors by white Christians in America when slavery was legal in America. This is ironic because Islam supports slavery. The enslavement of Africans under Islam is not only a historical fact, but is something that continues today, in some parts of Africa, and some Islamic countries, since Sharia (Islamic Law) supports slavery. Historically, Islam has enslaved members of all races. o The enslavement of Black Africans by Islam is described in the book...
  • Authorities Find No Evidence in Damond's Home

    08/16/2017 9:19:09 AM PDT · by Sopater · 34 replies
    Court documents show that authorities found nothing when they searched the home of Justine Ruszczyk Damond shortly after an officer fatally shot her. Damond called for police assistance July 15 because she believed she had heard a sexual assault taking place in the alley behind her house. Mohamed Noor, one of the two responding officers, shot her. He has declined to be interviewed by investigators. Hours later, police obtained a search warrant for Damond's house and checked inside for blood, hair, guns, ammunition, knives, drugs or writings. They took nothing from the home. The Damond family attorney, Bob Bennett, says...
  • Court: Residents Can’t Mention “Islam” or “Muslim” At Public Hearing on Mosque Construction

    ANN ARBOR, MI – In a settlement agreement, which reads more like an instrument of surrender, Bernards Township (“Township”), New Jersey officials agreed that, in addition to a $3.5 million payment to Islamic Society of Basking Ridge (“ISBR”), residents and citizens of the Township are prohibited from commenting on “Islam” or “Muslims.” at the upcoming public hearing to approve the settlement. Astonishingly, a federal judge approved the prohibition as a fully enforceable Order of the Court. As a result of this suppression of speech, the Thomas More Law Center (“TMLC”), a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor,...
  • Now Western media face wrath of Islamic blasphemy laws

    WND ^ | Aug 1, 2017 | Leo Hohmann
    A group of international Islamist organizations led by the Saudi-based Organization of Islamic Cooperation, or OIC, recently held a two-day conference on countering “Islamophobia” in which it recommends imposing Islamic blasphemy laws on the media worldwide. Under Islamic law, it is considered a serious offense to criticize Allah, Muhammad or Islam. In countries like Pakistan, a Muslim can take a non-Muslim to court and claim he was “offended” by something that was said, resulting in a trial and jail time, even death, for the non-Muslim. But the OIC, which consists of 57 Muslim-majority countries and boasts the largest voting bloc...

    London Mayor Sadiq Khan banned advertisements that promote "unrealistic expectations of women's body image and health". Now Berlin is planning to ban images in which women are portrayed as "beautiful but weak, hysterical, dumb, crazy, naive, or ruled by their emotions". Tagesspiegel's Harald Martenstein said the policy "could have been adopted from the Taliban manifesto". The irony is that this wave of morality and "virtue" is coming from cities governed by uninhibited leftist politicians, who for years campaigned for sexual liberation. It is now a "feminist" talking point to advocate sharia policy.[snip]Paris has said au revoir to "sexist" ads on...

    Breitbart London Editor in Chief Raheem Kassam told Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM listeners that naivety over Shariah supremacism runs throughout the Western world, and that there is “very clear evidence” Islamist ghettos are appearing in the United States. Discussing his new book, No Go Zones: How Sharia Law Is Coming to a Neighborhood Near You, on Tuesday, Kassam said he was struck by the “naivety through optimism that locals and officials had” in No Go Zone areas such as Rinkeby and Husby in Sweden, Molenbeek in Belgium, and Hamtramck in Detroit. “I met with nice people, well meaning people who...

    Islamabad, Pakistan (CNN) — Village elders in Pakistan ordered the rape of a 17-year-old girl after her brother was accused of raping another girl. Twenty people have been arrested by police following the two assaults, which took place last week in the town of Muzaffarabad, close to Multan in south Pakistan, police said ThursdayThe mother of the first victim, who is aged 12, told police her daughter was cutting grass in a field when she was raped by a man. The 12-year-old reported the rape to her mother, who then complained to village elders. After deliberating, the elders declared one...

    The Israeli government missed the point of Palestinian anger directed at metal detectors placed at entrances to the Temple Mount and, having misdiagnosed the situation, made a decision that failed to resolve the crisis and has only made it worse. At least, that’s what many of the Muslim protesters in the streets of Jerusalem’s Old City have been saying since the metal detectors were removed early Tuesday morning. Israel thought it was making a concession by removing the detectors, which were installed after three Arab Israelis carried out a shooting attack at the Temple Mount, killing two policemen with weapons...

    The Somali-American council member who represents Minneapolis' 6th Ward is calling for change within the police department while proclaiming the shooting of Justine Damond "is not a Somali issue" but a policing issue. Council Member Abdi Warsame took aim at the media and Facebook users who are calling Officer Mohamed Noor a “Somali killer cop.” Warsame referred to those statements, along with the statement issued last week by former Congressman Michele Bachmann, in which Bachmann said Noor was "an affirmative-action hire by the hijab-wearing mayor of Minneapolis," as “trash.” Warsame told reporters at a news conference Sunday that he has never...

    Halal Choices ^ | Sep 9, 2015
    Halal simply means permitted or lawful. So when we are talking about halal foods it means any foods that are allowed to be eaten according to Islamic Sharia law. This means that for any food to be considered halal it must comply with the religious ritual and observance of Sharia law. Here at Halal Choices we are concerned with the halal slaughter of animals such as beef, lamb and poultry. To be halal certified the animal must be facing Mecca, have its throat cut while still alive and then ritually sacrificed by a Muslim who recites a prayer dedicating the...

    Remember the bakers in Oregon who were driven out of business for refusing to bake a cake for a ceremony that was against their principles? They were fined $135,000 under Oregon law. Now the federal government is going even further, by pushing a bill to erode the First Amendment, which would criminalize opinions deemed as “hate speech.” Indeed, if House Bill 257 is passed into law, you could be jailed for an opinion that defies political orthodoxy with regards to sharia law, or radical Islam. The United States already has strict laws that protect against hate crimes, so one reasonably...

    Choosing denial and willful ignorance instead of knowledge of the motivating ideology of the jihadis who have vowed to destroy us. That’s just asking to be defeated. “If you have an amendment that says we’re going to study one religion and only one, we’re going to look at their leaders and put them on a list — only them — and you are going to talk about what’s orthodox practice and what’s unorthodox, then you are putting extra scrutiny on that religion,” said Muslim Brotherhood-linked Rep. Keith Ellison. Yes, you are. And there is a reason for that: 30,000 jihad...

    ST. CLOUD, Minn. – Claiming fears of Sharia law and more attacks like the Crossroads Mall stabbing, a number of St. Cloud residents took advantage of a public comment period to demand their city council look more closely at the issue of refugee resettlement in the area. Five people spoke during the 10-minute long public comment meeting at Monday’s St. Cloud City Council meeting. Speakers ranged from non-specifically calling for a more in-depth discussion of the refugee situation, to asking for actions to be taken to prevent more attacks like the Crossroads Mall attack, to ensuring the continuation of the...

    Last month ACT for America organized 28 anti-Sharia rallies across the United States, one in Roseville, California, near the state capital of Sacramento. ACT described the demonstration as “against Sharia law and for human rights.” According to their statement: “We, at ACT for America, are committed to protecting women and children from Sharia Law and its impact on Muslim women and children including honor killing and Female Genital Mutilation. We must ensure that every woman and child enjoy the protection afforded by the U.S. Constitution.” Sharia law is “incompatible with Western democracy” and the rally contended that those who practice...

    “Most disturbing about this recent defamation campaign is how it is focused on demonizing the legitimate yet widely misunderstood Islamic term I used, ‘jihad,’ which to majority of Muslims and according to religious scholars means ‘struggle’ or ‘to strive for,'” Sarsour wrote. “This term has been hijacked by Muslim extremists and right-wing extremists alike, leaving ordinary Muslims to defend our faith and in some cases silenced. It sets a dangerous precedent when people of faith are policed and when practicing their religion peacefully comes with consequences.”
