    The UN Security Council on Wednesday unanimously adopted a US-proposed resolution to help humanitarian aid reach desperate Afghans, while seeking to keep funds out of Taliban hands. Advertising The resolution – a first step by the UN after months of wrangling over how to avert a humanitarian catastrophe amid economic meltdown in Afghanistan – was welcomed by the Islamists as a "good step." Since the Taliban swept back to power in August, billions of dollars in aid and assets have been frozen by the West in what the UN has described as an "unprecedented fiscal shock" to the aid-dependent Afghan...
  • When will the ‘happy dhimmi’ myth be discredited? (Jewish refugees from Arab-Islamic lands / slavery like confitions)

    Today, any connection with slavery, however tenuous, is enough to make historical figures into non-persons. It’s time to treat the subjugation of Jews in Arab lands with the same seriousness. Although anticipated with trepidation, the United Nations’ Durban IV commemoration, titled “Reparations, racial justice and equality for people of African descent,” seems to have turned out to have been a damp squib. But it might not be long before another excuse for an anti-Israel hatefest presents itself. The propaganda strategy behind the Durban conference—to paint one nation (and one nation alone) as racist—remains alive and well on campus and in...

    German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier on Friday praised immigrants for their contribution to society, and for helping Germany become more open and diverse. Speaking at an event marking the 60th anniversary of the German-Turkish recruitment agreement, Steinmeier praised the families of Turkish immigrants and called them an important part of Germany. A Germany without guest workers, their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren would be “simply unimaginable today,” Steinmeier said at the event. Germany began recruiting workers from abroad to in industries such as agriculture, construction, steel, automotive and mining in the 1950s. […] The President said he is shocked when people with...

    Gal Gadot‘s message of unity amid ongoing rocket attacks in the West Bank created a firestorm from online critics, who contend the former Israeli Defense Forces fighter is a “propaganda” tool for the Israeli military. The 36-year-old “Wonder Woman” actress took to Twitter to express how her “heart breaks,” because her “country is at war,” as tensions over a disputed Jerusalem region led to deadly exchanges of rocket fire attacks between Israel and Hamas militants. “This is a vicious cycle that has been going on for far too long,” the Israeli native tweeted Wednesday. Israel deserves to live as a...

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Saturday that the car attack on the Capitol underscores the need for Congress to address security concerns at the complex as lawmakers remain divided over the issue. The statement came a day after an attacker rammed a car into a barrier at the Capitol. Capitol Police officer William “Billy” Evans died from wounds he suffered during the attack. The suspect was shot to death by police after he lunged at officers with a knife. “Yesterday’s attack at the Capitol, which resulted in the death of U.S. Capitol Police Officer Billy Evans and injured...

Beals was invited to give the invocation at the close of the event, marking the Biden family’s departure for the White House.

    The latest spate of terror attacks in France and Austria will not hamper the cooperation between the government and Germany’s Muslim community, Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said on Tuesday. “We won’t let terrorism and extremism derail us,” Seehofer said at the start of this year’s German Islam Conference. Seehofer praised an Islamic theology program for German-speaking imams in the city of Osnabrück as a significant contribution towards preventing radicalization. The interior ministry-funded project is “money well-spent for societal cohesion in our country,” Seehofer said. […] With many imams receiving their religious training abroad, very often in Turkey with the contentious...
  • Britain's biggest Islamic authorities say child sexual abuse in Muslim communities is 'underreported' because young victims are too scared to tell anyone about it

    Britain’s biggest Islamic authorities believe that child sexual abuse within the Muslim community is “underreported” because it is a “taboo subject”. The Muslim Women’s Network (MWN) presented written testimony to the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) stating that the “scale of the problem is hidden” because victims are “forced” into silence. The inquiry also received written testimony from the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) stating it thinks cases are “underreported… due to cultural issues and stigma”. All religious organizations are being investigated by IICSA, which was set up by the British government in 2014 following the Jimmy Savile...

    Muslims worldwide began Ramadan on Friday with dawn-to-dusk fasting, but many will have to forgo the communal prayers and family gatherings that make the holy month special, as authorities maintain lockdowns aimed at slowing the coronavirus pandemic. Ramadan is usually a festive season, with the daylong fast followed by lavish meals and evening get-togethers. But this year many are confined to their homes, travel is heavily restricted and public venues like parks, malls and even mosques are shuttered. Many are also weighed down by anxiety about the pandemic and widespread job losses resulting from the worldwide shutdowns. “This is too...

    New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Friday said the country still has a lot to do to tackle white supremacy, almost a year to the day since the Christchurch massacres. “New Zealand is not free of those groups who define themselves as extremist white supremacists, those groups exist here,” Ardern said. “The responsibility we have is to combat not only that existence, but the precursors to that existence. There is much more that we can do,” the 39-year-old lawmaker added. Ardern, who later on Friday attended a joint prayer with members of both mosques that were attacked, said the...

    Both chambers of the US Congress on Wednesday gave final approval to a resolution to restrain President Donald Trump from attacking Iran. The vote comes after months of soaring tensions between the US and Iran. The House of Representatives voted 227-186 to join the Senate in support of the resolution. The measure would prevent any military action against Iran without Congress voting for it explicitly. However, the resolution is likely to be vetoed by Trump, due to the lack of a majority within the Democratic Party and divergent Republicans. […] The resolution “sends a clear message that American people don’t...
  • Ryanair boss Michael O'Leary sparks Islamophobia row by saying Muslim men should face extra security checks at airports to prevent terrorist attacks

    Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary has sparked a race row after calling for Muslim passengers to be checked at airports in a bid to prevent terror attacks, as he claimed “that is where the threat is coming from”. Mr. O’Leary said terrorists “will generally be males of a Muslim persuasion” — and that families with young children should be let through security as they are less likely to “blow” people up. The 58-year-old added that the only way to “deal with the threat” was to vet “single male” Muslims traveling on their own. The Muslim Council of Britain said the comments...

    Rarely has Horst Seehofer appeared so honest. Quiet, composed, but with a slightly raspy voice, Germany’s interior minister on Friday afternoon opened his press conference with journalists concerning the shooting in Hanau. “The racist background to this act in my view is completely undisputed and cannot be relativized,” he said. Seehofer noted that there was a very high “right-wing” danger in the country and for democracy, and that represents “the greatest security threat in our country.”As a consequence of the attack on Wednesday afternoon, the interior minister said “sensitive institutions” such as mosques would see an increased police presence.

    Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said there was room for maneuver in reimposing the 2015 agreement that kept Tehran from developing nuclear weapons. But he added it would only happen if Germany, France and the UK showed the same willingness to reinstate the deal’s economic benefits for Iran. The landmark agreement has been on life support ever since US President Donald Trump withdrew from it in 2018 and reimposed economic sanctions on Tehran, leaving Germany, France and the UK struggling to breathe life into the ailing deal. […] “We have said that we are prepared to slow down or reverse...

    The EU’s new foreign affairs chief, Josep Borrell, will meet with Iranian leaders on Monday, as the EU seeks to salvage the tattered 2015 nuclear deal with Iran. The meeting comes amid a policy split between European signatories to the nuclear deal and the US. The US dropped out of the accord, officially called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and reimposed sanctions on Iran in August 2019. Tehran has responded by rolling back its commitments to the deal’s core elements, which include capping uranium enrichment. On January 6, Iran said that it would no longer adhere to its...

    In a wide-ranging speech at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland, German Chancellor Angela Merkel admitted that Germany had made a mistake during the 2015 refugee crisis. Not, she said, by welcoming asylum-seekers fleeing conflict, but by not preparing for their arrival as civil conflicts began cropping up across the Middle East and northern Africa. “The mistake was not to have paid attention to create an environment where people can stay in their own country,” the chancellor said. She warned that the mistake should not be repeated with Libya, where the conflict between the UN-backed government and rival...

    Tehran, Iran — Iran's president warned Wednesday that European soldiers in the Mideast "could be in danger" after three nations challenged Tehran over breaking the limits of its nuclear deal. Tehran's top diplomat meanwhile acknowledged that Iranians "were lied to" for days following the Islamic Republic's accidental shootdown of a Ukrainian jetliner that killed 176 people. President Hassan Rouhani's remarks in a televised Cabinet meeting represent the first direct threat he's made to Europe as tensions remain high between Tehran and Washington. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif's admission that the Islamic Republic lied to its own people, meanwhile, came...

    Britain, France and Germany ratcheted up pressure on Iran Tuesday to cease its violations of a landmark nuclear deal, stressing that they want to resolve differences through talks while starting the clock on a process that could result in a so-called “snapback” of United Nations sanctions. The three countries, which signed the international agreement in 2015 along with the United States, Russia and China, said in a letter to the European Union’s foreign policy chief that they had no choice but to trigger the deal’s “dispute mechanism,” given Iran’s ongoing transgressions. The three said they rejected Tehran’s argument that Iran...
