    The women were shot in an apparent targeted attack as they passed through a deserted village near the town of Mirali in North Waziristan tribal district, police chief Shafiullah Gandapur told NBC News. North Waziristan runs along Pakistan’s border with Afghanistan and served as a base for the Pakistani Taliban and other militants, including Al Qaeda, until 2014, when the army said it cleared the region of insurgents. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack. The incident comes amid an uptick in attacks claimed by the Pakistani Taliban in the deeply conservative area in recent months and amid concern...

    Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen says her ambition is for Denmark not to offer asylum to any refugees at all. The PM said that she wanted to reduce asylum applications in Denmark to zero during comments in parliament. “That’s what our target is. Of course, we can’t promise it,” she said. “We can’t promise zero asylum seekers but we can create a vision, like we did before the election, that we want a new asylum system and then do what we can to implement it,” she continued. 2020 saw a total of 1,547 asylum seekers registered in Denmark, the lowest number...

    A formal review is to be launched into why people from a black and minority ethnic background appear to be disproportionately affected by COVID-19. The move follows calls for the government to investigate the number of deaths of people from the BAME community and those working for the NHS, during the coronavirus pandemic. Sky News analysis found out of the 54 frontline health and social care workers in England and Wales that have died because of COVID-19, 70% of them were black or from an ethnic minority. Our analysis also found that four of the five health trusts in England...

    Pope Eliminates Pork from Banquet out of Respect for Muslims ROME — Pope Francis invited 1,500 mostly poor people to lunch this weekend to celebrate the World Day for the Poor and requested that all pork be removed from the menu so as not to give offense to Muslim guests. This Sunday marked the third annual celebration of the World Day of the Poor, a Catholic commemoration established by Pope Francis in November 2016 to celebrate the end of the Jubilee Year of Mercy.

    A Dutch ban on the wearing of face-covering garments such as the burqa which came into place in August has “no place” in a tolerant society, a U.N. representative said Monday. Tendayi Achiume, the U.N. Special Rapporteur on racism, said the ban reflected a wider “consolidation of Islamophobia” in the Netherlands. As Breitbart News reported, the Dutch ban took effect in August, 14 years after it was first mooted by Dutch populist Geert Wilders. The new legislation makes it illegal to wear face coverings in public buildings and on transport. “From now on the wearing of clothing which covers the...

    Where were you at 5:46 a.m. 18 years ago today? And at 6:03 a.m. that day, what, exactly, were you doing? Most of you reading this will be able to answer those questions without hesitation. At 5:46 a.m. Pacific Time on 9/11/01, five hijackers flew American Airlines Flight 11 into the northern side of 1 WTC — the North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York City. Then, 17 minutes later, five hijackers crashed United Airlines Flight 175 into the southern side of 2 WTC. You remember these things because they register as one of the greatest tragedies...

    Pope Francis Praises New Interreligious Initiative for World Peace Jihad Watch: Dialogue does not end terrorism VATICAN CITY (ChurchMilitant.com) - Pope Francis lauded a new initiative Monday to implement a joint interreligious document on world peace that he and the grand imam of al-Azhar signed in February. The initiative, a higher committee established in Abu Dhabi Aug. 19 to ensure the objectives of the "Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together" are met, includes Vatican and Muslim officials. This 'Document on Human Fraternity' is full of outrageously false and misleading statements.Tweet Pope Francis praised the new initiative...

    There's nothing a person says that more serves better to convinces me of their ignorance than when they use the "C" word. They use it as if it was a magical talisman that would make us crumble to the ground and eagerly convert to whatever twaddle they're peddling. People who believe the Crusades were somehow "bad" inevitably are completely and unforgivably ignorant of both Christian and Moslem histories, let alone the infamous and barbaric treatment of Christians under invading Moslem armies in Spain, Portugal and France between AD 711-1492. The Crusades weren't started by Christians or the Church. Instead, they...

    On April 19, 2019, Frontpage Mag published Milo Yiannopoulos’ lamentation on the burning of the Notre Dame Cathedral. While I share his grief over this irreplaceable loss to Western Civilization and Christianity, I was shocked to discover that he felt the necessity to trash the Jews. He did so under the convenient cover that he is a Jew -- as he states, through matrilineal descent. But, more significant than his bloodline, his belief system seems to be Catholic as evidenced by his adoration of the Virgin Mary: Mary—the ‘Our Lady’ of Notre Dame—is proof of the incarnation. It is her...

    The United States and Syrian-Kurdish forces have successfully driven Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) fighters out of Syria, ending the terrorists’ stronghold in the country that, in 2014, covered 34,000 square miles; however, aid groups and the media are reporting that the almost 80,000 people who lived under ISIS rule for years have now been relocated to a remote camp in northeastern Syria. The United Nation’s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs reported on Monday that the Syria Humanitarian Fund (SHF) has given $4.3 million in U.S. dollars to organizations that are “delivering life-saving assistance to people displaced from the last...

    Icon of a Disastrous Papacy by Chris Ferrara Fatima Perspectives #1267 Behold the logo for the Pope’s upcoming useless trip to Morocco: the crescent moon symbolizing the religion invented by Muhammad almost completely encircles a distorted Cross. Given this Pope’s obsessive promotion of the mass migration of Muslim males into Western European capitals, including Rome itself, the image suggests that the body of Christian faithful the Cross is supposed to represent now have almost no avenue of escape from what Pope Pius XI, in saner times, called “the darkness of Islam” in a prayer traditional Roman Catholics still recite today...

    One of the interesting aspects of Fr. James Schall’s refreshing collection of essays, On Islam, is that it provides a chronological record. The first essay appeared in 2003, the last in 2018. This allows the reader to see how our understanding of Islam has changed over those years. Unfortunately, it hasn’t changed much at all. In 2003 we understood next to nothing about Islam, and in 2018 it’s still next to nothing.One of Fr. Schall’s main themes is that we must try to understand Islam as Muslims understand it, not as we would like it to be. But instead of...

    As a member of Mauritania's slave-owning class, Abdel Nasser Ould Ethmane could have had anything he wanted as a present for his circumcision ceremony: a toy, money, a camel, or, as his brother would choose, a bicycle. But the 7-year-old wanted something more sinister. He chose Yebawa Ould Keihel, a young boy with skin the color of coal. At that moment, Abdel became a slave master. It's an experience that's common here in Mauritania, a vast country in West Africa's Sahara Desert where activists and the United Nations estimate 10% to 20% of people are enslaved -- usually dark-skinned people...

    “It may be on the lips of many, but that equation is a foolish lie." This is how Pope Francis defined the equation that many make between Muslims and terrorists. He did so in the extensive interview with the director of the Echo of Bergamo newspaper, published today 24 May 2018, on the occasion of the arrival in the city of the urn with the remains of Saint John XXIII, who thus returns for the first time to his land.
