    Former United States President Barack Obama said at a Berlin reunion with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Thursday that he was “heartbroken” by a suicide bombing that killed 22 people in Manchester. “We can see the terrible violence that took place just recently in Manchester… it’s a reminder that there is great danger of terrorism and people who would do great harm to others just because they’re different,” Obama told a crowd at the German capital’s Brandenburg Gate. He and Merkel had sent a joint message of condolence to the families of those killed in the Monday attack during a...

    Trump planning to launch new round of talks during his upcoming visit. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has crossed the Rubicon and voiced “unprecedented” readiness to reach a peace deal with Israel, sources close to the efforts to renew talks between Israel and the Palestinians have told The Jerusalem Post. Abbas, according to the sources, made this clear to President Donald Trump during their meeting at the White House last week. The president plans to use his trip to Israel later this month to receive assurances from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that he, too, is committed to a peace agreement.

    Muslim leaders in Minneapolis are wary of a man who has been patrolling a predominantly Somali neighborhood to enforce the Islamic civil code. The Star Tribune reports that Abdullah Rashid has been telling residents of the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood not to drink, use drugs or interact with the opposite sex, according to his interpretation of Sharia law. He’s been telling Muslim women to wear a head-to-toe garment called a jilbab. …

    Times of Israel ^ | March 8, 2017, 8:40 pm | Dov Lieber
    Hamas is reportedly planning to endorse a state of Palestine along the 1967 borders — a move that would be a monumental shift from the group’s long-held policy of reclaiming all of historic Palestine — though it won’t recognize Israel’s legitimacy. […] Talk of “the 1967 borders” generally refers to the pre-1967 lines between Israel and the territory it captured in that year’s Six-Day War from Jordan (in Jerusalem and the West Bank), Egypt (Gaza and the Sinai) and Syria (the Golan Heights). The amendments to the charter were reportedly worked out during a meeting in Doha, Qatar, which was...

    DNC Chair candidate Kieth Ellison was caught lying again regarding his stances on the second amendment. Partial Transcript Bash: Congressman, gun control. In 2014 you told Bill Maher that you wished the Democratic Party would come out against the Second Amendment. How do you reach out to Americans who support gun rights when you don’t support the Second Amendment? Ellison: First of all, let me tell you, I remember that show very well and that is not what I said, at all. What I talked about is my grandfather’s shotgun, the fact I am a turkey hunter, and I didn’t...

    More than 100,000 Palestinians have sent US President Donald Trump letters, imploring him not to withhold US support from the idea of founding a Palestinian state. Arab media website Al-Monitor reported that the wide scale campaign was organized by Youth Center for Development and Innovation Arab in the West Bank city of Nablus, and that the center had gathered the letters for 11 days, starting on January 20—the day of Trump’s inauguration. The initiative had collected the letters of young Palestinians living in the West Bank and Gaza, as well as from Syrian refugees and Lebanese nationals. “All of the...

    The Palestinian Authority (PA) on Wednesday evening reacted to the meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. A statement from PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s office said that the PA remains committed to the two-state solution and is willing to work with Trump’s administration to achieve a peace agreement. At the same time, the statement criticized Netanyahu and claimed that “Israel’s insistence on destroying the two-state solution will lead to more extremism and more instability.” “We are ready to work positively with the Trump administration in order to bring peace,” the statement continued, “but the Israeli Prime...
  • Democrats Think Muslims Worse Off Here Than Christians Are In Muslim World

    02/07/2017 1:37:19 PM PST · by davikkm · 22 replies
    Most voters agree that Christians living in Muslim-majority countries are mistreated for their religion. But Democrats are more likely to think Muslims are mistreated in America than to think Christians are persecuted in the Islamic world. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 62% of Likely U.S. Voters believe most Christians living in the Islamic world are treated unfairly because of their religion. Just 17% disagree, while 21% more are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) These findings have changed little in surveys since early 2015. By comparison, 39% feel most Muslims living in...

    Italy’s Muslim community signed a pact with the government on Wednesday pledging to “reject all forms of violence and terrorism”, with prayers in mosques to be held in Italian. “It’s a very important document which concerns the present and future of our country through inter-religious dialogue, starting from a basic principle: We may have different religions… but we are all Italian,” said Interior Minister Marco Minniti. He added: “One of the essential points is that all the signatories have committed to reject all forms of violence and terrorism.” Only a handful of Italian residents are known to have joined jihadist...

    Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas says he is willing to work with President-elect Donald Trump to reach a two-state solution to the conflict with Israel. Abbas spoke Saturday at an event marking the anniversary of his Fatah party. He said "We want to emphasize our willingness to work with the newly-elected American administration... to achieve peace... based on a two-state solution." Abbas thanked the U.S. for its U.N. abstention vote last week, which allowed the Security Council to adopt a resolution declaring Israeli settlements in territory claimed by Palestinians illegal.

    Two-thirds of Palestinians believe a two-state solution to their conflict with Israel is no longer possible, a poll said Tuesday. The share of those who lost faith in such a deal rose from 56 percent in September to 65 percent now, probably due to an acceleration of settlement activity, said the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey research. Most in the international community still back the establishment of a Palestinian state alongside Israel, even though a deal appears to be increasingly complicated, in part because of the continued growth of settlements. Gaps between Israeli and Palestinian leaders remain wide, preventing...

    The University of Louisiana at Lafayette student who said she was robbed of her hijab head covering and wallet and beaten by two white men near campus fabricated the entire story, according to Lafayette Police. The 18-year-old Middle Eastern student reported to police Wednesday that she was walking to class about 11 a.m. when two white men, one wearing a Donald Trump hat, jumped out of an SUV, struck her and hit her repeatedly. She also said the men yelled racial slurs at her, ripped her hijab off her head and stole her wallet. …

    In a gesture of solidarity following the gruesome killing of a French priest, Muslims on Sunday attended Catholic Mass in churches and cathedrals across France and beyond. Reporters on the scene said that between 100 and 200 Muslims gathered at the towering Gothic cathedral in Rouen, only a few kilometers (miles) from Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray, where the 85-year-old Rev. Jacques Hamel was killed by two teenage attackers on Tuesday. “We’re very touched,” Archbishop Dominique Lebrun told broadcaster BFMTV. “It’s an important gesture of fraternity. They’ve told us, and I think they’re sincere, that it’s not Islam which killed Jacques Hamel.” …

    Of course he did. Because as I keep saying and BEGGING people to comprehend, islam is not a religion, it is a political system. All of the seemingly-religious aspects are pure theater, which only the truly gullible (due often to low IQs resulting from centuries of epidemic inbreeding) follow. The 9/11 hijackers spent their final days as fixtures in strip clubs, drinking like fish. The largest cultural block of pornography consumers is musloids. The highest per capita rates of homosexuality, pedophilia, and bestiality are among musloids. Think of it in terms of Communism. I mean by-the-book Communism. NO ONE believes...

    Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) said that “the greater majority of domestic terrorist attacks are not by Muslims at all; they’re by people like Timothy McVeigh.” Ellison made the comment during an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes a day after the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) claimed responsibility for bombing a Belgian airport and subway train. […] “And so, you know, we got to understand terrorism as a generalized threat, various ideologies that drive it. But, no, I think we can get through this, but people like [Donald] Trump and [Ted] Cruz are not helping.” According to an analysis...

    Recently, Tom Scholl, who identified himself as a pastor of churches in Ohio and New York, as well as holding positions in several ecumenical organizations, wrote a 3-part article for my local newspaper, The Macon Telegraph, entitled -What the Koran says about Christianity.- I thought it would be an interesting series to read, but I was greatly disappointed and not a little irked. It could have been an apologia about the goodness of Islam, using selective passages from The Koran and being charitable to some elements of Christianity. But his apologia went further than the usual arguments and Koranic exhortations...

    An official Palestinian Authority (PA) daily op-ed has accused the United States of being behind all the chaos and civil wars in the Muslim and Arab world, including the longest and oldest fight from right after Mohammed's times between the Sunni and Shi'ite Muslims. According to Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), the PA writer claims that this turmoil is the direct result of the September 11th attacks on the US, stating that the US utilized this attack to create "an imaginary enemy called 'terror,' and it supervised the cultivation of the idea until it ripened into what is known today as...

    Philadelphia's mayor on Tuesday vowed to find the "coward" who left a pig's head at the door of a Philadelphia mosque. The head was found outside the Al-Aqsa Islamic Society early Monday morning. "We all know of the terrible, thoughtless, ignorant act that someone perpetrated in this city yesterday," said Mayor Michael Nutter. "We will, of course, at some point in time find the coward." Pork and pork byproducts are haram, or forbidden, in Islam.
