Jihadis: Who Are Their Targets?

by Douglas Murray  •  July 27, 2016 at 6:00 am
  • What "provocation" had the murdered priest, Father Jacques Hamel, provided?
  • An enemy willing to slaughter the most rollicking secularists and the most devout priest, both in their places of work, is an enemy with the entirety of French civilisation and culture in its sights. It is an enemy -- extremist Islam -- clearly intent not on some kind of tributary offering or suit for peace, but rather an enemy which seeks its opponent's total and utter destruction.
  • Should this not be the moment for the entirety of one of the greatest cultures on earth to unite as one, turn on this common enemy and destroy it first, in the name of civilisation?
An enemy willing to slaughter the most rollicking secularists and the most devout priest, both in their places of work, is an enemy with the entirety of French civilisation and culture in its sights. Left: Father Jacques Hamel, murdered yesterday in Rouen, France by an Islamic jihadist. Right: Stéphane Charbonnier, the editor and publisher of Charlie Hebdo, who was murdered in Paris on January 7, 2015, along with many of his colleagues, by Islamic jihadists.
It is now 18 months since two gunmen forced their way into the offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris and set about murdering the staff of that magazine. The gunmen from al-Qaeda in Yemen called for the editor -- "Charb" -- by name before murdering him and most of his colleagues. In an interview shortly before his death, taking into account the threat to his life which entailed constant security protection, Stéphane Charbonnier had said, "I prefer to die standing than live on my knees." Charb did die standing, in the office of the magazine he edited.

Not Just "An Absurd Murder," Pope Francis

by Lawrence A. Franklin  •  July 27, 2016 at 4:30 am
  • Jesus warned his Apostles that men of faith would kill them, thinking they had done God a favor.
  • Pope Francis, in the Vatican, referred to this killing as "an absurd murder." He could not be more wrong. This was a purposeful act of war against Judeo-Christian civilization. The murder of Father Jacques has great meaning. Our would-be replacements are telling us, "it is time for you to leave the stage of history."
  • This most recent murder is additional evidence that the old France is dying.

Yesterday at a Catholic church in France, there were two quite different types of martyrdoms.
Two young male Muslims, bent on waging personal jihad and thereby securing salvation through martyrdom, burst into the old church of St. Étienne-du-Rouvray in Rouen, Normandy during the morning Mass. There they martyred the 85-year old priest, Father Jacques Hamel. They slit his throat as if he were an animal killed for the recent Eid-al-Adha ("The Feast of Sacrifice"), celebrated by Muslims all over the world on the last day of Ramadan.
The Catholic Mass is re-enactment of the voluntary sacrifice of Christ crucified to redeem us before God.
The murder committed by the two terrorists was in obedience to the Koran-directed will of Allah, to "slay the idolaters wherever you find them" (Quran 9:5).
We Christians believe that Father Hamel's martyrdom ushers his soul before the presence of God.

Turkey: Marry Your Rapist

by Burak Bekdil  •  July 27, 2016 at 4:00 am
  • The head of a department of the Supreme Court of Appeals has revealed that nearly 3,000 marriages were registered between the victims of sexual abuse, including rape, and their assailants. The judge mentioned a particular case in which three men kidnapped and raped a girl, then one of them married her and the sentences for all three were lifted.
  • Instead of passing legislation to amend grotesque articles in the penal code, Erdogan keeps doing "family engineering" in line with his Islamist thinking. Most recently Erdogan told a women's association that "family planning and contraception were not for Muslim families."
  • Turkey's First Lady, Emine Erdogan, shocked many people when she said that the Ottoman-era harems were "educational centers that prepared women for life."
A Turkish court sentenced journalist Arzu Yildiz to 20 months in jail for publishing a video that showed Turkish intelligence agents shipping weapons to Islamist groups in Syria. The court also stripped Yildiz of legal guardianship over her own children, for breaching the confidentiality of the court case.
There have been several dramatic aspects of Turkey's creeping Islamization over the past 15 years. Anti-Semitism, xenophobia, an eroding secular social life and majoritarianism (that the majority in a society is entitled to primacy) are not all. The Islamization of Turkish society has also made life more difficult for women.
In 2015, Turkey ranked 130th in gender equality among a group of 145 countries. But that was hardly surprising. Only a year earlier, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had objected to equality between men and women. "Women's equality with men is against nature," he said.

WEDNESDAY Security Update: NYT Plays Down ISIS Tie to Brutal Murder of French Priest

New York Times Plays Down ISIS Tie to Brutal Murder of French Priest

However, the Times did not mention that the killers said they were from Daesh or that they reportedly yelled "Allahu Akbar"

The documents show that, in the years immediately after 9/11, law enforcement officials had an understanding of an intricate web of support for jihadist terror. That's gone now.

The most money was spent at the InterContinental Paris Le Grand, a historic hotel built in 1862 that is called a "luxury" hotel that "defines historic grandeur," according to its website.

"The World's Largest Gathering of Free Minds!" Freedomfest is a gathering of true free spirited Americans of all ages.

When it comes to the connection between Islam and violence against non-Muslims, one fact must be embraced: the majority of those in positions of leadership and authority in the West are either liars or fools, or both.

"There is an all-out assault on religious liberty in the military right now," stated retired Lieutenant General William G. "Jerry" Boykin.

ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack at the Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray church in Rouen, Normandy - which has been condemned as "barbarous" by The Vatican
