    France: Muslim “reformer” and accused rapist Tariq Ramadan hospitalized, may be too ill to remain in jail
    Tariq Ramadan has only just now started claiming that he has multiple sclerosis, just a week after he was denied bail on the rape charges he is facing. How convenient that he would suddenly turn out to be too ill to remain behind bars. It could be that his team’s failure to impugn the accounts […]

    Nigeria: Muslims murder 19, injure 50 in jihad suicide bombings at fish market
    The BBC adds in a photo caption: “The continuing attacks are being blamed on Boko Haram – casting doubt on official claims the group has been defeated.” Boko Haram, the Party of the People of the Sunnah for Dawah and Jihad, has been declared defeated before. The Nigerian government vowed to defeat Boko Haram by […]

    New York City: Muslim migrant tried to join Islamic State, wanted to stage jihad massacre in Times Square
    Are we diverse enough yet? Remember: stopping, even temporarily, migration from jihadi hotspots is racist, bigoted, and “Islamophobic.” “Yemeni man pleads guilty in U.S. to trying to join Islamic State,” by Brendan Pierson, Reuters, February 16, 2018: NEW YORK (Reuters) – A Yemen-born New York City resident on Friday pleaded guilty to attempting to provide […]

    Macron and Muslims in France: “Vaste Programme, Monsieur”
    Many years ago, Charles De Gaulle was addressing a political rally when an enthusiast in the crowd shouted out “Mort aux cons!,” a term first used by the French military in addressing the enemy, and which means  “Death to the idiots” or “Death to the dopes.” De Gaulle turned slowly to where the shout had […]

    UK: Muslim doctor sexually assaults five female patients over 10-day period
    Sexual assault occurs in all cultures, but only in Islam does it have divine sanction. The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and […]

    Indonesia: Muslim cleric ordered jihad massacre that left four dead in Jakarta
    A Muslim cleric? But hasn’t Oman Rohman, popularly known as Aman Abdurrahman, devoted his entire life to studying Islam and communicating it properly? How did he get the idea that Islam called upon him to order jihad suicide attacks and murder people he regarded as infidels or apostates? We can only hope that learned imams […]

    Bangladesh: Muslims targeted converts from Islam to Christianity for murder
    Islam mandates death for those who leave the fold, so Nuruzzaman Labu and Nazmul Islam Shaon were simply carrying out the dictates of Islamic law. The implications of that fact are far-reaching, but no authorities in the West will ponder them. “RAB arrests two JMB militants, thwarts plan to kill converted Christians,” by Nuruzzaman Labu, […]

    French government uses Islamic jurisprudence to calculate housing benefits for Muslims
    “On the official website of the CAF, the government mentions a form of Islamic jurisprudence known as ‘Kafala’ as being valid alongside other documents to prove guardianship of children, leading some to question if the government is following Islamic law.” There isn’t really any question about it: if the French government treats kafala as valid to establish guardianship […]

    Judge: Australia “under attack” from Muslims wanting “to kill as many unbelievers as they can”
    Australia has been “under attack” from a group of Muslim men wanting “to kill as many unbelievers as they can” for about 15 years, a Supreme Court judge has said. Justice Desmond Fagan added that their goal was to “impose the Sharia.” He referred to verses in the Qur’an that he said described the duty […]

    Germany: Muslims on trial for jihad terror offenses attended same mosque as Berlin jihad mass murderer
    “Four alleged Islamic State supporters on trial for terror offences are said to have been radicalised at the same mosque that was frequented by Berlin terror attacker Anis Amri,” who ploughed a truck into a Christmas market, murdering 12 and injuring 56. The impotence of authorities in the face of jihadists is sickening. Every day, […]

    Belgium: New Muslim political party supports Turkey’s Erdogan and Turkish ambitions
    A newly formed political party in Belgium has expressed its support for Turkey’s counter-terrorism operations against the PKK as well as the fight against the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO), a group behind the 2016 defeated coup in Turkey. This shameless anti-democratic deceiver, Dyab Abou Jahjah, is an overt supporter of Recep Tayyip Erdogan, whose political views should […]

    The death penalty for those who leave Islam is based upon the Qur’an: “They wish you would disbelieve as they disbelieved so you would be alike. So do not take from among them allies until they emigrate for the cause of Allah. But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you […]

    Australia: “I mean to take as many of them down as I can” — Muslim teen planned “maximum fire” jihad massacre
    His jihad group wanted to “kill as many unbelievers as they can and impose Sharia law.” Do Australian authorities ever stop to ponder where young Muslims keep getting the idea that this is a good thing to do? Do authorities in any non-Muslim country? Do they really think that showering money on Tamim Khaja and […]

    U.S. appeals court says Trump travel ban unlawfully discriminates against Muslims
    Islamic jihadis unlawfully discriminate against the Infidels they murder, but that is not important for this appeals court. There are two hard choices: either keep out some harmless people, or let in some harmful people. For years we were told that we had to let in the harmful people, or else we were “racist” and […]

    “Last October, his wife levied a case against him, causing the sultan of his area to summon him. Abdul’s wife reminded the sultan that he deserved to be beheaded, according to sharia law, because he had abandoned Islam.” The death penalty for those who leave Islam is based upon the Qur’an: “They wish you would […]

    What are the chances that this couple — and their children — will assimilate, adopt Western values, and become loyal, stable, productive members of Belgian society? Right, there is no chance of that whatsoever. And how many more Muslim migrants are there just like this couple in Belgium already, with many more on the way? […]

    “Images of the ISIS flag were then sent to the FBI for analysis.” Considering that the FBI wouldn’t know jihad terrorism from a hole in the ground, that isn’t exactly reassuring. “[B]ased on information we received from the FBI we do not believe this act was perpetrated by someone linked to the Islamic State,” Hurricane […]

    Paris suburb becomes jihadi breeding ground and recruitment zone for the Islamic State
    “Once branded a “no-go” zone by authorities,” the Paris suburb of Trappes has gone beyond that to become “a recruiting ground for Islamic State….a breeding ground for jihadists…..largely immune to French laws…..where hardline Salafism and Wahhabism are widely practiced.” Integration is a useless venture to Islamic supremacists who view France (and other Western nations) as […]
