    “QUEEN ELIZABETH must claim her right to rule Muslims.” So ran a recent headline on the Arab Atheist Network, a web forum. It was only partly in jest. According to reports from Casablanca to Karachi, the British monarch is descended from the Prophet Muhammad, making her a cousin of the kings of Morocco and Jordan, not to mention of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s Supreme Leader.

    Operations in the Levant (1516) The Ottomans first captured the city of Diyarbekir in southeastern Anatolia.[2] The Battle of Marj Dabiq (24 August 1516) was decisive, in which the Mamluk ruler Kansuh al-Ghuri was killed.[2] The Ottomans apparently outnumbered the Mamluks by a factor of 3 to 1.[6] Syria fell under the rule of the Ottomans with this single battle.[6] The Battle of Yaunis Khan occurred near Gaza (1516) and was again a defeat for the Mamluks.

    Turkish security services brought their strong-arm tactics to Washington on Thursday, roughing up protesters, journalists and even D.C. police before a speech by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The event descended into chaos and violence outside the Brookings Institute near D.C.'s Dupont Circle after the president's security personnel confronted a small group of people gathered to protest Erdogan's visit. ... Turkish security then clashed with the D.C. cops, who refused to remove protesters from the premises.

    It Is Now Being Declared That Soon There Will Be A MUSLIM Pope Who Will Rule The Union Of Muslim States (full title) Yeni Akit columnist, Abdurrahman Dilipak, is one of the most prominent columnist in Turkey. His promotion this week should raise the eyebrow of everyone who tracks the Bible, especially its prophecies regarding the man of sin. Surprisingly to many speculators and conspiracy theorists, this man of sin will not come out of the papacy in Rome, but is already emerging as a ‘Muslim Pope’ from Turkey. Dilpak is already declaring that soon, Erdogan will announce himself as...

    Just ahead of the fourteenth anniversary of al Qaeda's 9/11 attacks on the U.S., the leader of the terrorist group took aim in an angry speech at a mortal enemy -- but not American “crusaders” this time. Rather, the object of his tirade was the leader of ISIS in a declaration of war that will “irreconcilably” divide the two terror groups in a way the U.S. may be able to exploit, experts say. Ayman al-Zawahiri, the Egyptian doctor who replaced Osama bin Laden as the head of al Qaeda four years ago, in a new audio message accused ISIS top...

    According to an ISIS video posted on the Internet on October 4, 2015, when the town of Qaryatayn, Syria, was taken over by ISIS, the Christians remaining there were required to convert to Islam or pay the jizya poll tax "in submission" and "live as dhimmis in the Islamic State." Following are excerpts: "The Media Bureau of Damascus Province" "[Fight those who do not believe in Allah] until they give the jizya willingly in submission."

  • Mainstream Islamic Doctrine: Build a Caliphate

    Terror Trends Bulletin ^ | 23 Sept 15 | Christopher W. Holton
    The vast majority of Westerners–especially Americans–are completely ignorant of Islamic doctrine. When Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi claimed the title Caliph and declared the Islamic State in June 2014, many ignorant observers assumed that the establishment of the Caliphate was something that only “radicals” and “extremists” sought. That isn’t true. A study of Islamic doctrine based on the Islamic trilogy–the Quran, the Hadith and the Sirah–reveals that it is a doctrinal tenet of Islam that Muslims are supposed to work for the establishment of the worldwide Islamic state so that Allah’s law reigns supreme everywhere.
  • Saudi Arabia Offers to Build 200 Mosques for Syrians in Germany

    Why will the Saudis build 200 mosques for these "refugees", yet won't take a single one in? Saudi Arabia, which doesn't permit the construction of churches but finances a mosque construction spree in the land of the infidel, will not be taking in Syrian refugees. Even though they are fellow Muslims. It will however offer to build 200 mosques in Germany for their use. ... Saudi mosques have played a key role in the rise of Islamic terrorism in the West. Just think of the explosive wonders that something short of a million migrants and all the mosques they can...

    Once part of one of the most brutal dictator's army in the Middle East, over 100 former members of Saddam Hussein's military and intelligence officers are now part of ISIS. Now they make up the complex network of ISIS's leadership, helping to build the military strategies which have led the brutal jihadi group to their military gains in Syria and Iraq. The officers gave ISIS the organization and discipline it needed to weld together jihadi fighters drawn from across the globe, integrating terror tactics like suicide bombings with military operation

    … In the hands of Islamic State there are now 5,000 women, mostly belonging to the Yazidi syncretistic minority. If you change country and go to Nigeria, the situation is the same. Now it is the turn of “Chibok girls” who unleashed Twitter’s mobilization of the first lady, Michelle Obama. Most of these girls have been raped and are now pregnant. Even the corrupt United Nations has spoken, while the Western feminists keep silent. This is the revolting double standard of Western feminists, who are always ready to denounce the “homophobic” Christians, sexism on the US campus or the Israeli...

    The self-styled "caliph" of the brutal terrorist Islamic State (ISIS) Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is suffering from spinal injuries so critical that he may never lead ISIS again. In fact, he may already have been declared "clinically dead," according to rumors reported by Iran's state FARS news agency, the Jerusalem Post notes. Al-Baghdadi, the so-called "Invisible Sheik," who is said to wear a mask while addressing his followers, was injured in a U.S. bombing raid at al-Baaj west of Mosul on March 18, The Guardian reports, and is being treated in his hideout near Mosul by two doctors. Pentagon spokesman Col....

    The leader of Islamic State, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, has been seriously wounded in an air strike in western Iraq, sources have told the Guardian. A source in Iraq with connections to the terror group revealed that Baghdadi suffered serious injuries during an attack by the US-led coalition in March. The source said Baghdadi’s wounds were at first life-threatening, but he has since made a slow recovery. He has not, however, resumed day-to-day control of the organisation.

    The head of a provincial branch of Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) has stirred the pot by tweeting that the country should “get ready for the caliphate” of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. Fuat Özgür Çalapkulu, the head of the AKP in the eastern province of Siirt, sent the controversial tweet on March 17, hours after Selahattin Demirtaş, the co-leader of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP), said his party “will never let you be president [in a presidential system].” In his tweet, Çalapkulu said Erdoğan’s opponents had in the past claimed that Erdoğan could not even be a village...

    "What is the Islamic State? Where did it come from, and what are its intentions? The simplicity of these questions can be deceiving, and few Western leaders seem to know the answers. In December, The New York Times published confidential comments by Major General Michael K. Nagata, the Special Operations commander for the United States in the Middle East, admitting that he had hardly begun figuring out the Islamic State’s appeal. “We have not defeated the idea,” he said. “We do not even understand the idea.” In the past year, President Obama has referred to the Islamic State, variously, as...

    British jihadis now fighting for the Islamic State in Syria have tweeted a letter urging rioters in Ferguson, Missouri, to pledge their "allegiance" to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. In return, militants would be sent to "shed" their own "blood" to help fight police forces. Trying to take advantage of the social unrest following the Ferguson grand jury decision not to indict police officer Darren Wilson for shooting dead unarmed teenager Michael Brown, a British Islamic State militant tweeted a series of photos on Wednesday featuring a hand-written letter to the Ferguson protesters calling for them to convert to Islam...

    As we predicted. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has won the presidential election with 52 percent of the vote, according to early results. Thus, Erdogan has become the country’s first popularly-elected head of state. He appears triumphant with the crowds of millions carrying fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow flags. (Revelation 19:17)  With 98.75 percent of the ballots counted, Erdogan leads with 52 percent, the Hurriyet Daily reports. Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, former Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, has received 38 percent of the votes. Selahattin Demirtas, head of the leftist pro-Kurdish People’s Democratic Party, is in third place with just...

    Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State, emerged from the shadows to lead Friday prayers at Mosul’s Great Mosque, calling on the world’s Muslims to “obey” him as the head of the caliphate declared by the Sunni jihadist group. The notoriously secretive jihadi, who has never before been seen in public, chose the first Friday prayer service of Ramadan to make an audacious display of power in the city that the Sunni Islamists have now controlled for three weeks. Speaking from the balcony in his new incarnation as self-anointed “Caliph Ibrahim”, al-Baghdadi announced himself as “the leader who...

    Baghdad (AFP) - Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the enigmatic self-proclaimed "caliph" of a state straddling Iraq and Syria, is increasingly seen as more powerful than Al-Qaeda's chief. The leader of the powerful Islamic State (IS) militant group was on June 29 declared "caliph" in an attempt to revive a system of rule that ended nearly 100 years ago with the fall of the Ottoman Empire. In a video posted online on Saturday, purportedly the first known footage of Baghdadi, he ordered Muslims to obey him during a Ramadan sermon delivered at a mosque in the northern militant-held Iraqi city of Mosul.

    (CNSNews.com) – As Ramadan began on Sunday, the terrorist group fighting to control territory across northern Syria and north-western Iraq effectively named its leader as head of the world’s Islamic fighters and demanded that Muslims everywhere pledge allegiance. In a speech on the same day Saudi King Abdullah alluded to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) as nothing more than “a handful of terrorists” whose aim was to sow discord among Muslims. “We will not allow a handful of terrorists, using Islam for personal aims, to terrify Muslims,” Abdullah said in the speech, which was read out...
