I’m surprised it took this long to happen. Muslims have been demanding and getting privileged treatment at the expense of other religions in workplaces and schools for a while now. (via Vlad Tepes)
Western’s longest-serving chaplain, along with four of his colleagues, has resigned in protest over the recently announced move of the Chaplains’ Services offices and a dedicated Muslim prayer space in the University Community Centre.
Rev. Michael Bechard, Western’s Roman Catholic chaplain, submitted his resignation and those of Janet Loo, Annette Donovan Panchaud, Melissa Page Nichols and Maija Wilson from the UWO Chaplains’ Association, to University President Amit Chakma on Friday.
The University announced last week that the current Muslim prayer room in University College would be moved along with the Chaplains’ Services offices to one space in the basement of the UCC. In addition, the current multi-faith space in the UCC will no longer be used.
“I am uneasy with the fact that the university is providing a dedicated space to the Muslim community when such privileges are not being granted to any other body,” he said.
Rev. Karen Low, United Church Chaplain, said in an email that the chaplains were concerned with the allocation of space that was available for the entire community.
“With the current situation — a designated Muslim prayer space and no space available for the prayer and reflection needs of others — we are presented with an issue of justice and equality.”
Equality is against the Islamic religion. So is justice.

The whole point of Islam is to impose inferiority on other religions. That affirms the specialness of Muslims or Muslim privilege. So no they aren’t willing to share.
Bechard said the new space could be used in-between Muslim prayer times for students of other faiths to use.
Kado Zimmo, president of the Muslim Students’ Association, said the needs of the Muslim community mean they need a space specifically for them.
“It is difficult to share the space because there are certain regulations that need to be upheld within the prayer space.”
Bechard was also critical of the way the decision was reached. He said the only people at the table were the Muslim chaplain, another two chaplains, the Muslim Students’ Association and the University.
“Many of these meetings took place without the rest of the chaplains being drawn into the conversation or even informed of the meetings,” Bechard said. “And to be told [after the fact] by administration that there is no room for negotiation and there will be no more further conversation, I think, is nonsense.”


UK jihadi: “O by the way Islamic State does have a Dirty bomb”

UK jihadi: “O by the way Islamic State does have a Dirty bomb”

This may be true, but it may simply be an attempt to “strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah,” as the Qur’an directs Muslims to do (8:60).

“Islamic State has a dirty bomb says British jihadi amid claims 40kg of uranium was taken from Iraqi university,” by Jennifer Smith, Daily Mail, November 30, 2014:
Islamic State fanatics claim to have constructed a dirty bomb after stealing 40kg of uranium from an Iraqi university.
Militants boasted of the device on social media, with one even commenting on the destruction such a bomb would wreak in London, four months after the chemical was reported missing from Mosul University.
Among extremists making online threats to the West is British explosives expert Hamayun Tariq, who fled his home in Dudley, West Midlands, for the Middle East in 2012.
Using the Muslim name, Muslim-al-Britani, he posted on Twitter: ‘O by the way Islamic State does have a Dirty bomb. We found some Radio active material from Mosul university,’ the Mirror reports.
He continued: ‘We’ll find out what dirty bombs are and what they do. We’ll also discuss what might happen if one actually went off in a public area.
‘This sort of a bomb would be terribly destructive if went off In LONDON becuz (sic) it would be more of a disruptive than a destructive weapon,’ before having his Twitter account suspended.
Other jihadis echoed the claims a destructive ‘dirty bomb’ had been made, with one writing: ‘
‘IS has confirmed that we have acquired a dirty bomb from radioactive material from Mosul Uni! Mashallah #IS’.
In July nearly 40kg of uranium stored for scientific research went missing from Mosul University in northern Iraq.
In a letter to the United Nations, Iraq’s U.N. Ambassador Mohamed Ali Alhakim told Ban Ki-moon ‘Terrorist groups have seized control of nuclear material at the sites that came out of the control of the state,’ adding such materials ‘can be used in manufacturing weapons of mass destruction.’
‘These nuclear materials, despite the limited amounts mentioned, can enable terrorist groups, with the availability of the required expertise, to use it separate or in combination with other materials in its terrorist acts.’
Yesterday, as news the uranium had been used to construct a bomb, one jihadi taunted Iraq’s reported plans to retake control of Mosul.
‘Plan to retake Mosul from ISIS emerges, haha! Little do they know the resources of #IS! Good luck!’ they wrote.
Earlier this year, Tariq claimed to have had his passport cancelled by the Home Office after travelling to the Middle East.
The former car mechanic fled to Pakistan almost immediately after being released from prison in 2012.
After pledging his allegiance to the Taliban, he claimed to have been recruited by IS fighters who paid for him to travel to Syria to join them….

In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Allahu Akbar

In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Allahu Akbar

 http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2014/11/in_the_name_of_the_father_the_son_and_the_allahu_akbar.html

 
The Hagia Sophia in Istanbul is immovable, guarded by four Islamic minarets as a Christian architectural prisoner. It was originally the Santa Sophia[1] built as a Christian Orthodox Church to honor the Wisdom of God in 537, nearly a century before Islam was founded. 916 years later the Santa Sophia was seized by the Ottoman Turk leader Sultan Mehmed II, and converted into a mosque in 1453 for 478 years until 1931. All jeweled Christian imagery was covered while it housed Muslims[2] worshipping Allah, their god. By 1935 it was turned into a museum the sparkling iconographic images of Christ the Son of God reemerged. Many are now petitioning Turkish President Erdogan to remove its status as a museum and return the Hagia Sophia into a mosque.

Similarly, the Washington National Cathedral joined the Hagia Sophia as a Christian hostage of grand architecture, a fortnight ago. Muslims invaded the Washington National Cathedral, a monument to Christianity, this time under the guise of “prayer” on November 14, 2014. The Muslim prayer was being planned in the Cathedral for 12 to 18 months.[3] Whether the Dean of the Washington National Cathedral, Reverend Gary Hall of the Episcopal Church,[4] knew it or not he was actually hosting the precise 100th anniversary of the declaration of Holy War by the Ottoman Empire as the Muslim Caliphate, which occurred on November 14, 1914. It was a bold declaration of Holy War by the Ottomans against the most powerful Christian nations of that time.

It is crucial to highlight history and specific dates, which are significant by the Ottoman tradition of Holy War. The 100th anniversary marked a deliberately disrespectful act by Mohammedan followers to the God of Abraham, Jacob and Moses – Jehovah God. Much to the chagrin of the interfaith leaders, Muslims and Christians do not worship the same God. Muslims view the God of Moses as inferior to the god of Mohammed.

Deliberate Denigration of the US Military and Christianity

As a further example of this assault by Muslims, one of the standard prayers of the Muslims was given at the ramp ceremony at the American Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan for the victims of the crash on Extortion 17 on August 7, 2011, which is highlighted in the book BETRAYED by Billy Vaughn.[5] Thirty dead American warriors were insulted and damned to hell by an imam, as they lay lifeless in their coffins. Some of the caskets were even draped with the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan flag, as the charred figures had not yet been individually identified, distinguishing the American from the Afghan men.

Part of the prayer by the imam during this ramp ceremony proceeded as follows, “…In the name of Allah the merciful forgiver, the companions of the fire [refers to infidels, those who are unbelievers] are not equal with the companions of heaven [refers to Muslims]. The companions of heaven [Muslims] are the winners. Had we sent this Koran to a mountain you would have seen the mountain prostrated in fear of Allah…”

The “mountain” refers to Mount Sinai and compares the Koran to the Ten Commandments Moses received from Yahweh or Jehovah, eluding that if the Koran were sent instead of the Ten Commandments the mountain itself would have bowed to the greater power of Allah rather than Jehovah. This is a subtle way for the Muslims to mock and insult the God of the Jews and Christians, yet this sort of mockery by the Muslims has been happening for centuries.

A Christian Woman Rises

Two weeks ago Muslims began pushing the boundaries to denigrate Christianity in America’s capital. However, unlike the event of 1914 when the Ottoman Empire declared a Holy War against the great powers of the day: Britain, France, Russia and so on, there was a lone woman 100 years later in America’s Washington National Cathedral who was not as silent as the mosaics in the Santa Sophia. Christine Weick stood, with her hair down, without a head covering, and made a declaration to honor her Christian faith,
“Jesus Christ died on that cross. He is the reason we are to worship only Him. Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior,” she said. “We have built …allowed you your mosques in this country. Why don’t you worship in your mosques and leave our churches alone? We are a country founded on Christian principles.”
The Muslims weren’t expecting a reaction from anyone, and certainly not a woman, which is quite profound as the “woman” in the Bible symbolically represents God’s anointed ones as a bride to the Lamb of God (Revelation 19: 7, 8). This sole woman, Ms. Weick, scolded Muslims along with their leader in the Cathedral. She threw a spanner into the plans of “Holy War” in America. Not surprisingly, the prayers by the Muslims in the National Cathedral insulted both Jews and Christians just as it did when an imam was praying over the dead bodies of men from the U.S. Military in 2011.

When retelling her story Ms. Weick says that she let God direct her path to finally speak out the words that God wanted her to proclaim. One reaction to Ms. Weick’s stance was from another woman who knows well the trickery of Islam in Africa, particularly Sudan and South Sudan. She is Pastor Lynn Childers, the wife of Sam Childers. With the assistance of fellow Christians for the past 18 years, both have been saving thousands of Christian orphans from Muslims who are murdering African Christians and their families.

In an exclusive interview, Pastor Lynn remarked, “It was disappointing to know that we Christians had no men to stand up for our faith at that moment. It had to be a woman.” Ms. Weick has inspired people like Pastor Lynn who is now inviting people to join her at Shekinah Fellowship in Central City, Pennsylvania to organize groups to visit mosques nationwide and peacefully pray to the Almighty God in Jesus’ name for Muslims to be enlightened with the truth about Christ. The notion of interfaith worship is inconceivable to both women. For Christians, Jesus is God’s Son and God has anointed Jesus as Lord and King in heaven. This belief is anathema to the Muslims.

That women are standing up for the Christian faith would be a reason to rejoice for other Christians. In the Bible, it was Mary who was chosen to be the mother of Jesus the Messiah, it was Mary Magdalene and a group of other women who first learned that Jesus had been resurrected -- Christian women have been abundantly blessed by God. Christian women in turn have blessed others, for example they played an imperative role in ending slavery in the United States, pioneered the way against women suffrage, and continue to do so today. Decades after the death and resurrection of Jesus, the aristocratic women of Rome were also among the first Romans to convert, leading eventually to the end of Roman persecution of Christians by Constantine the Great, and to his conversion as the first Christian Roman Emperor.

Unlike women in the Muslim faith, Christian women have been elevated to positions of leadership in both the public and private sphere from the founding of Christianity and even prior to that among the Israelites. Hence, the woman in Christianity is symbolically profound. Jesus Christ is the male figure of Christianity and his anointed ones are the female figure, married in spiritual unity as a husband and wife. Therefore to defile the Christian “woman” of Christ is a desecration against the Father and the Son.

The Roots of Christianity

Which brings us back to Istanbul, formerly known as Constantinople named after the converted Christian Roman Emperor, and the history of the Santa Sophia. There is nothing the Muslims can do to evade the dominant founding history and the lasting legacy of Christianity. Centuries of defiling the Christian community, the symbolic woman, can no longer continue without resistance. When Ms. Weick stood up in the National Cathedral she represented and reinvigorated the Christian community. The Christian woman could no longer be disgraced.

Since the Holy War was declared in 1914, the Ottoman Empire is no more. A modern Turkey rose in its place and became the first and only secular Muslim country in the world under its leader Ataturk, but even now the country is under constant turmoil, spiritually and politically. President Erdogan acknowledges that the national borders drawn after World War I still plague Turkey, and many agree with him. However the solution President Erdogan and other Turks seek is more problematic. They believe that to achieve glory for their region, to regain what they see as their glorious Ottoman past, they must first reclaim and defile the Temple of God, whether it is in Istanbul or Washington, DC.

The prayers almost a fortnight ago by the Muslims in Washington, DC are in reality a desperate attempt by a failed ideological path to rewrite history. In fact, just hours after the prayer at the Washington National Cathedral, Hamad Chebli an Imam from the Islamic Center of Central Jersey was also praying on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, where Allah was worshipped and praised as supreme.

Observers are astounded at the lack of preparedness for Muslim manipulations by both alleged Christian leaders and political leaders in Washington, DC. Indeed, a Muslim imam was allowed to pray on the Congressional floor during the 100th anniversary of the Ottoman Empire’s declaration of a Holy War against Christian nations under the presence of America’s elected public servants. But the imam hurriedly prayed out of despair under the U.S. Congressional roof because the hour of glory will never come for Muslims amidst their willful lies and deceptions (taqiyya) against true Christians in America.

Others remain steadfast and righteous. Christine Weick, a servant of Jesus Christ, stood with the Wisdom of God like the Santa Sophia, and the Washington National Cathedral when they were first built, anchored with God. But it was the people, the custodians entrusted with the Cathedral and U.S. Congress who had vacillated and trembled toward the Mohammedan seductions. Jesus Christ as the figurehead of the Christian world continues to be rejected as the King of Kings and God’s Only Begotten Son by the Islamic world – that is another unwavering truth, and always will be.

Minnesota imam looks at 'caliphate' through Islamic lens

 https://www.minnpost.com/community-sketchbook/2014/11/minnesota-imam-looks-caliphate-through-islamic-lens

Sheikh Jamel Ben Ameur
MinnPost photo by Ibrahim Hirsi
Sheikh Jamel Ben Ameur, imam of Masjid Al-Tawba Islamic Cultural Community Center in Eden Prairie, discusses caliphate state and the raging violence in Iraq and Syria. 
Any time a militant organization rises with violent acts in the name of Islam, some Muslim leaders grow vocal in denouncing radicalization as they distance their faith from terrorism. Often times, some of these religious leaders seem to condemn certain actions or groups because the society expects them to do so — or because they’re concerned that critics might put them in the spotlight for their silence.

But Sheikh Jamel Ben Ameur, an Islamic scholar and imam of Masjid Al-Tawba Islamic Cultural Community Center in Eden Prairie, has refused to denounce the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria for one reason, he says: because the news reports about the Islamic State are “confusing” and “complicated.”

Ben Ameur has called on his Muslim counterparts to be careful about their comments regarding the group amid developing revelations that several Twin Cities Muslims have been recruited to join the Islamic State, which is also often referred to as ISIS or ISIL. In the most recent instance, two Minnesota men — Abdullahi Yusuf, 18, and Abdi Nur, 20 — were charged this week with conspiring to support the terrorist organization.

When he spoke to a crowd of about 100 Muslims at Masjid Al-Tawba earlier this fall, Ben Ameur said many people in the Muslim community ask Islamic scholars to condemn the group. And Ben Ameur has a message for those seeking his view on the ISIS issue: “We don’t need to accuse people of something we don’t know about. We don’t have to jump into judgment.”

In June, the Islamic State declared an Islamic caliphate, and designated Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi as the caliph and  “leader of Muslims everywhere.” Since then, ISIS has remained under a global microscope that has magnified its violent actions, which have including crucifixions and beheadings, most notably of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff.

Despite international media reports of the murder of these men — which U.S. and British officials as well as family members have confirmed — Ben Ameur has expressed skepticism about the authenticity of the videos and news reports. “We don’t know if [ISIS] did it or not,” he said. “This is confusing; we don’t know the news that’s coming to us. [Therefore], we don’t want to name names.”

Violence in the region is 'not Islam'

When it comes to the acts of violence that the Islamic State has reportedly perpetuated in Iraq and Syria, however, Ben Ameur has been quick to say that those actions are un-Islamic, a remark that President Obama echoed during a September speech on ISIS. “Those actions are not Islam,” Ben Ameur said. “To empower Islam doesn’t mean to kill people and to takeover [territories].”

And Ben Ameur has warned ISIS admirers in Minnesota and other parts of the world against joining the group. “Why go there?,” he asked the crowd at the even early this fall, a group of mostly young men. “Who are you going to help?” he asked. “For someone to leave his family behind is wrong. We have families here. We have peace here. We can implement our religion in a way we can’t do in our countries.”

Ben Ameur was speaking about the dozens of Minnesota Muslims who have slipped away since 2008 to join Al-Shabab in Africa and the Islamic State in the Middle East. The most recent suspected wave believed to join the Islamic State includes Abdirahmaan Muhumed, 29-year-old father of nine, who reportedly died in August fighting for the Islamic State in Syria. Douglas McAuthur McCain, 33-year-old African-American, who attended high school in Robbinsdale, also died for ISIS around the same time and in the same battle as Muhumed.

“I kind of feel sorry for McCain,” said Jamal Omar, an American-born religious leader who converted to Islam nearly 20 years ago. “He was a young man, and obviously people had taken advantage of him with certain ideologies. I’ve noticed that a lot of these youth that go join these movements are disenfranchised youth. Then all of a sudden, they become religious and they start joining these movements, which I find kind of interesting.”

A crowd of about 100 Minnesota Muslims attended a presentation earlier this year about the caliphate state through Islamic prospective at Masjid Al-Tawba Islamic Cultural Community Center in Eden Prairie.
Federal officials have estimated about 100 Americans have left the country to join terrorist groups in Syria, with about six to 12 residents of the Twin Cities, according to Special Agent Gregory Boosalis, a spokesman for the FBI’s Minneapolis office.

Without condemning a particular group, Ben Ameur described the Iraqi and Syria situation as meaningless violence. He urged young Muslims to be careful about the choices they make in life. “Don’t let your emotions guide you,” he said.

Ben Ameur added: “Those who ask about contributing [to Islam and Muslims] and making a change, do good in your society. Start with your family and community here.”

'Caliphate' through an Islamic perspective

Influential and armed Islamic organizations fighting to establish Sharia law have always existed in many parts of the Islamic world. And while the Islamic State has a lot in common with these organizations, two things make ISIS stand out: The declaration of a "caliphate" — or an Islamic state — and the appointment of a 'caliph,' a supreme religious and political leader for Muslims throughout the world.

A caliphate is a governing system that was put in place after the death of Prophet Mohammed, Ben Ameur noted, and it isn’t an obligation upon Muslims today to establish such a system. When it existed previously, it was a system of ruling wrapped with justice, mercy and peace, he added  — not about fighting for power and seizing land. Moreover, he said, “the implementation of the law of Allah should be included in the needs of the people.  The realities of the people should be considered.”

The establishment of an authentic Islamic state is complex and requires representation of all Muslims, Ben Ameur said, and the creation of previous caliphate systems was more than just a group of people coming together and announcing Islamic states and leaders.

Islamic states after the death of Prophet Mohammed were named by Ahlul Halli Wal ‘Aqd — people of influence and authority — a group of people with respect and integrity among Muslims who were charged with making important decisions.

Some of the requirements for a legitimate caliphate state include the ability to have the power and finances to be responsible for all Muslim nations, to be just and merciful. “If the implementation does not fulfill that, then we’re not to follow them,” Ben Ameur said. “The society creates caliphate. Caliphate does not create a society.”

ISIS Calls for Poisoning and Running Down Westerners

ISIS Calls for Poisoning and Running Down Westerners

A screenshot from the ISIS video 'What Are You Waiting For.' 

In a new video, ISIS threatens to murder Westerners through a wide range of new means including poisoning of food and drink, and hit-and-run attacks. This marks an increase in ambitious threats as ISIS (also known as Islamic State, ISIL, and Daesh) calls on Muslims to wage “jihad in the path of Allah” using easily accessible weapons.

The seven-minute video, entitled, What Are You Waiting For, opens with a group of Francophone ISIS fighters denouncing the West and throwing their French passports into a campfire. French is the spoken language in the video, which also contains Arabic and English subtitles. One jihadi, known as Abu Osama Al-Faranci, states: “This is a message from your French brothers who have made Hijra, to the Muslims who are still living in the land of Kufr.”  In other words, it is an appeal by ISIS fighters who have emigrated to lands controlled by the Islamic State to Muslims living in the land of the infidelity.

Though the fighters in the video mostly speak to Muslims living in France, they also have a broader audience in mind; for instance, Abu Maryam al-Franci addresses “those Muslims in France and elsewhere.”

The jihadis featured in the video implore Muslims to make “Hijra” and emigrate to lands controlled by the Islamic State. But if Muslims do not emigrate, Abu Maryam (holding a machine gun and a machete) reminds them, “Indeed you have been ordered to fight the Kafir [unbeliever/non-Muslim] wherever you find him” and encourages Muslims in the West to attack civilians in their home countries.
Screenshot from an ISIS video clip.

Abu Salman al-Faranci introduces new methods to entice potential terrorists living in the West to commit murder in France, telling them to “terrorize them and do not allow them to sleep due to fear and horror.” Abu Salman continues, “There are weapons and cars available and targets ready to be hit… Kill them [infidels] and spit in their faces and run over them with your cars.” He goes on: “Even poison is available, so poison the water and food of at least one of the enemies of Allah.”  Abu Maryam hopes that infidels “will even fear travelling to the market.”

ISIS has proven itself successful at recruiting thousands of fighters from Western countries to join its ranks. Should this resonance continue and jihadis living in the West heed the new ISIS call, it would have dire consequences for non-jihadi Muslims; any driver, waiter, or grocery clerk could be perceived as a terrorist in waiting. For all of us, ISIS’ latest message hopes to turn a stroll down the street into a walk of terror and to turn our food and drinks into recipes for murder.

UK: Teachers “scared to teach about Jesus” for fear of offending Muslims

UK: Teachers “scared to teach about Jesus” for fear of offending Muslims

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/11/uk-teachers-scared-to-teach-about-jesus-for-fear-of-offending-muslims

1-the-nativity-scene-gino-rigucci

This article speaks only of the fear of offending “those of other faiths,” but when Bolton starts talking about how Christianity must be taught so as to aid the integration of new immigrants, it is clear that he is talking about Muslims, as no one is worried about the low rate of “integration” of any other group.

So what we have here are British teachers readily discarding their own culture and heritage for a watery and content-free multiculturalism that will, in the end, only pave the way for the takeover of Britain by those who still have confidence in their own beliefs, traditions and culture. Those who are proud to be British and interested in exploring what that means are derided as “racists.” Britain, in short, is a spent force, and is doomed to a future of blood and chaos.

“Teachers ‘scared to teach about Jesus’: Fear of offending other faiths prevents children1 [sic] learning true meaning of Christmas, BBC presenter claims,” by Sarah Harris, Daily Mail, November 29, 2014:
Fear of ‘offending’ different faiths means pupils are not being taught the true meaning of Christmas in schools, according to a BBC presenter.
Roger Bolton, of Radio 4’s Feedback programme, said that some secular teachers are also ‘unsympathetic to religious education’.
As a result, many pupils are not learning the crucial fact that Christmas celebrates the birth of Jesus.
A lack of understanding of Christianity is also preventing youngsters from gaining a proper understanding of religious imagery in literature and drama as well as European art.
This ‘ignorance’ in schools is being compounded by broadcasters’ reluctance to tackle ‘faith issues’ in children’s programmes.
Mr Bolton, who previously presented Sunday, Radio 4’s main programme for religious news and current affairs, condemned the trend in a ‘viewpoint’ piece written for this weeks Radio Times.
He said the Band Aid single, Do They Know It’s Christmas? would be better renamed for school children as ‘Do They Know What Christmas Is?’
He said: ‘Older readers might think this is a redundant question, but I’m afraid it’s not.
‘In some schools in this country, little is taught about the true meaning of Christmas, possibly because secular staff are unsympathetic to religious education or because of the fear of offending those of other faiths.
‘And broadcasters aren’t doing much to remedy this ignorance. It is difficult to find any children’s programmes that regularly deal with faith issues.’
Mr Bolton said there were ‘exceptions’ such as On Angel’s Wings, a BBC1 animation this Christmas, which is based on War Horse author, Michael Morpurgo’ s picture book.
It tells the Christmas story from the point of view of a young shepherd boy.
‘But there is little else in prospect, and the consequences of this lack of coverage are becoming evident,’ he said.
The presenter pointed to a Bible Society survey published earlier this year that claimed a quarter of children had ‘never read, seen or heard of Noah’s Ark’.
A similar proportion was ignorant of the Nativity; 43 per cent had never heard of the Crucifixion, and 53 per cent had ‘never read, seen or heard’ of Joseph and his coat of many colours.
Mr Bolton wrote: ‘Does this matter? I think it does, for both cultural and communal reasons.
‘The United Kingdom cannot be understood without appreciating the role Christian culture has played in its development, from the introduction of the parish system to the replacement of a monarch (James II) because he was a Roman Catholic.
‘In the time of Henry VIII what one believed about the doctrine of ‘transubstantiation’ was literally a matter of life and death.
‘Our 17th-century Civil War was fought in large part over the doctrine of the Divine Right of Kings.
‘Without a knowledge of Christianity, what will our schoolchildren make of much of our finest literature and drama, filled as it is with Christian imagery? Or much of the finest European art?’
He added: ‘It is also vital that children of other faiths learn about Christmas. How can they begin to integrate into our country if they know little of the faith still at its heart?
‘Of course, the reverse applies, too. How can they feel welcome in this country if we make no real effort to understand what is often the most important thing to them and their families – their faiths?’…
And that means that what is most likely to come out of this is more state school teaching about…Islam

Extremist preacher linked to Lee Rigby killers justifies murder of women and children who oppose ISIS in chilling Facebook message

Extremist preacher linked to Lee Rigby killers justifies murder of women and children who oppose ISIS in chilling Facebook message

  • Omar Bakri Muhammad used Facebook to speak out against ISIS' enemies
  • Said it is sometimes necessary to kill women and children seeking shelter
  • Claimed opposition to Islamic State terror group justifies innocents' murder
  • Bakri is banned from Britain and facing terrorism charges in Lebanon
An extremist preacher who is said to have played role in radicalising the murderers of soldier Lee Rigby has attempted to justify the killing of those fighting jihadis in Syria and Iraq.

Omar Bakri Muhammad, who was known as the Tottenham Ayatollah, has been openly using Facebook to say that it is sometimes necessary to kill women and children sheltering in schools and hospitals.

Bakri, who is banned from Britain and is facing terrorism charges in Lebanon, has been blamed for radicalising several young extremists, including the killers of Lee Rigby, Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale.

His posts on the social media site come just days after several websites were criticised for not raising the alarm about extreme messages posted by one of the killers of Fusilier Rigby in the six months before his death.
On his account, which has now been deleted from Facebook, he the made a post under the title 'killing women and children'.

According to the Sunday Telegraph, he wrote that even though this was not usually permitted, he added: 'One must distinguish between killing women and children and the Mujahideen fighting the Kuffar (non-believers) wherever they find them, whether that be in a school or hospital or elsewhere.'

He also added that the Mujahideen must kill people who do not believe in the extreme version of Islam, 'wherever they find them'.

A Facebook spokesman told the newspaper they don't comment on individual cases but added they do not permit terrorist material on their site.

Bakri, believed to be 54 now, was previously the London-based spiritual leader of the extremist group Al-Muhajiroun.

He previously live in London and was under investigation by UK police after he called for young British Muslims to take up arms and join Al Qaeda.

On the London bombings it was also reported that Bakri referred to the four suicide bombers who killed 56 people on July 7 as 'the fantastic four'.

He said the British people were to blame for the terror attacks on the capital because they 'did not make enough effort to stop its own government committing its own atrocities in Iraq and Afghanistan'.

In March he told The Daily Mail when speaking of the troubles in Tripoli ‘only jihad salafi can save it and save Lebanon’.

He added: ‘This country needs to be made an Islamic state, obviously ... but I know the security services are getting ready to nab me soon’.

The radical Islamic cleric was under house arrest in Tripoli since Lebanese security forces released him from jail in 2010, after striking a deal with the Shia extremist group Hezbollah.

Bakri was sentenced to life following a terrorism conviction, but was released on bail after witnesses recanted their testimony.

Canadian Watchdog Report Chastises RCMP for Islamist Engagement

The report shows that the RCMP has fallen into the same trap as some U.S. law enforcement agencies in that they have established close relations with radical Islamist groups who pretend to be moderate. The danger is that the RCMP legitimizes militant groups and radicals who should be shunned rather than dignified as respected moderate allies of the Canadian government in its war against war against Islamic terrorism. By embracing Islamic extremists who masquerade as moderates, the RCMP effectively has ostracized genuine Islamic moderates in Canada who deserve recognition for their courage in speaking out against the terrorists.




Muslims Facing Tomorrow boycotted a meeting chaired by Minister Jason Kenney because two invited speakers are supporters of sharia

On November 22, 2014, Jason Kenney, Canada’s Minister of Employment and Social Development and Minister for Multiculturalism chaired the conference Canadians’ Strategy to Combat ISIS Ideology & Jihadi Recruitment in Canada.

On November 20, the organization Muslim Facing Tomorrow issued a press release to explain that it would not attend the event because two known supporters of sharia were on the roster of speakers.


The Myth of 'Deradicalizing' Islamic Radicals by Tarek Fatah
On Monday, I appeared before the Senate Standing Committee on National Security and Defence. The committee is studying the question of security threats to Canada as well as 'de-radicalization' efforts being promoted by the RCMP [Royal Canadian Mounted Police]. I suggested to the senators that 'de-radicalization' initiatives by Canada's security agencies were doomed to failure because the very men and women partnering with the RCMP in this exercise were not just part of the problem, but in many ways the cause of radicalization.




Two-minute heated exchange – Muslim ‘Desi’ takes on a ‘Dhimmi’

On November 24, 2014, I was invited by the Senate Standing Committee on National Security and Defence in Ottawa to speak on security threats Canada faces at the hands of Islamic radicals, and to give my opinion on the much-touted de-radicalization programs of the RCMP that promotes Islamists to defang Jihadists. My straightforward talk did not go well by Liberal Party Senator Grant Mitchell who tried to insinuate that I was an Islamophobe. He then tried to put words in my mouth, at which point I had to set the record as well as the sad senator straight.

Here is a two-minute exchange between a Dhimmi and a Desi. You be the judge.


RCMP scheduled to join spokesmen of two Al Qaeda-funding organizations on “de-radicalization” panel

On November 26, 2014, RCMP Superintendent Doug Best joined Islamists Faisal Kutty and Robert Heft on a panel discussion entitled “Radicalization towards violence and its impact on Muslims.” The event was organized by the Muslim Students Association (MSA) at the University of Windsor.
Was there any verification done by the RCMP before it accepted to give credibility to Robert Heft and Faisal Kutty at an event organized by the Muslim Students Association?

1.   Robert Heft is a supporter of Zakir Naik, an Islamist banned from entering Canada for his extremist views, including his support for Al Qaeda;

2.   Faisal Kutty has been a spokesman of two Al Qaeda-funding organizations in the past;

3.   Muslim Students Associations have been described by the NYPD as “incubators” (p. 68) for radicalism.




ISIS takes credit for inspiring terrorist attacks that killed two Canadian soldiers

ISIS is claiming that last month’s attacks that killed two Canadian Forces members in Quebec and Ontario were “the direct result” of its call for violence in countries that had joined the international military campaign against the terrorist group. It attributed these incidents to an audio speech released a month earlier in which ISIS spokesman Abu Mohammad Al-Adnani incited supporters to kill Canadians, Americans, Australians and other members of the alliance.


Peace With Islam in Our Time

Abdallah Bulgasem Zehaf-Bibeau, the crackhead turned Jihadist spawned by the mating of a Canadian immigration official and a Libyan Muslim Jihadist, just wanted peace. He told a co-worker, “There can’t be world peace until there’s only Muslims.” Then he tried to usher in peace, the Islamic way, by opening fire near the Canadian parliament.

When negotiating peace with other cultures it’s a good idea to make sure that the words you are using mean the same thing. Most Muslims and Westerners want peace. But to Westerners peace means co-existence. To Muslims, peace means the end of your existence. The West sees peace as living side by side with Muslims. Muslims see peace as the end of the West.


Mental Illness: The Root Cause of Terrorism?

We continue to believe that people all over the world want to live as we do. That freedom-rights and responsibilities that come with it-are sought by all. But the numbers say no. And that’s where our arrogance resides; continuing to believe that fallacy that 7 billion people want our life style. And as long as we believe that to be true, we won’t be as vigilant as necessary. We will let comments and behaviours pass by unquestioned, unheeded; oh they didn’t really mean that! Or we will justify evil with root causes, or as has become popular here in Canada, explain it away as mental illness, until too late when we will come face to face with the real meaning of entropy.

Jean-Fran├žois wrote in How Democracies Perish:  “Democracy tends to ignore, even deny, threats to its existence because it loathes doing what is needed to counter them. It awakens only when the danger becomes deadly, imminent, evident. By then, either there is too little time to save itself, or the price of survival has become crushingly high.”


Decision-making process called into question - University of Western Ontario says student needs were their priority

The University announced last week that the current Muslim prayer room in University College would be moved along with the Chaplains’ Services offices to one space in the basement of the UCC. In addition, the current multi-faith space in the UCC will no longer be used. As a result, Western’s longest-serving chaplain, Rev. Michael Bechard, along with four of his colleagues, has resigned in protest over the recently announced move of the Chaplains’ Services offices and a dedicated Muslim prayer space in the University Community Centre.


We urge our members to write an email to Reverend Bechard showing support for his brave actions.  Below is the email address along with a sample letter written by one of our members:




Dear Reverend Bechard,

Dear Chaplains,



I read the article related to the resignation of Rev. Michael Bechard, Western’s Roman Catholic chaplain, Janet Loo, Annette Donovan Panchaud, Melissa Page Nichols and Maija Wilson from the UWO Chaplains’ Association, submitted to University President Amit Chakma on Friday.



I must say that I applaud your courage and moral strength. In the midst of a suicidal politically correct state ideology governing our Christian country, we feel despondent witnessing the irreversible erosion of the fabric of our society built by our ancestors' tears, sweat, sacrifice and death.



Cultural-Marxism is the evil taking over our souls and minds, resulting in a fragmented, segregated, tense society.

Brave citizens such as yourselves deserve all our support.

You will be called "racists, intolerant, islamophobe", etc.



As long as we are afraid of these empty words, they will instill fear and build grounds for the submission and humiliation of our people.



Thank you again for showing that there is some spine left amongst us.



Miscarriage of Justice – Libel Judgement against Ezra Levant

This monstrous miscarriage of justice will make it easier for every Muslim extremist or anti-Semite to go after his or her critics. With the help of judges who don’t give a damn about the values and the future of Canada, Islam is gradually winning in Canada. Ezra Levant is not going to roll over and take the abuse – he has already expressed his determination to appeal the unjust decision

Read the rest and learn how you can help Ezra here.

We urge you to contribute to Ezra’s Defense Fund.

He is fighting for ALL of us to keep free speech alive.






A World Stripped of Contraries by Mark Steyn

Diversity, as it happens, is where Steyn says "nations go to die." Canada is one example. "If local Mennonites or Amish were segregating the sexes and making them enter by different doors for religious services in a Toronto grade-school cafeteria, Canadian feminists would howl them down in outrage," Steyn points out. "But when Muslims do it they fall as silent as their body-bagged sisters in Kandahar."





ISLAMIC STATE



Hagel's Departure Reveals Obama's Underestimation of the Threat from the Islamic State

Looking back, it is clear that the Obama Administration waited far too long, did far too little, and left Iraq far too quickly.  Staying in Iraq could have prepared that country to withstand the kind of hit the Islamic State landed on it.  It also would have meant a much more informed and ready America; one able to pull together local troops and countries for combat and support

But despite all this, the Obama Administration hopes to build an international coalition that will bear the cost, all the while claiming it won’t put U.S. “boots on the ground” to “degrade and destroy” Islamic State.

How Come No Street Protests Against ISIS from Leftwing



ISIS is not content with one limited war, but gleefully announces its intent to annihilate all Christians from its ongoing path, enslave women as permanent sex slaves, burn, loot, and round up children for mass beheadings and use the heads of those it murders for sport.  It is engaged in real, actual genocide of non-Moslems.  Yet, not a word from the “moral” crowd.

No angry public protests from the leftwing, no public rallies from the paid/ professional feminists who know that this Islamic group intends to vaginally mutilate millions of women, imprison them in sex harems, and honor kill them.




ISIS Calls for Poisoning and Running Down Westerners

In a new video, ISIS threatens to murder Westerners through a wide range of new means, including poisoning of food and drink and hit-and-run attacks.  This marks an increase in ambitious threats as ISIS (also known as Islamic State, ISIL, and Daesh) calls on Muslims to wage “jihad in the path of Allah” using easily accessible weapons.

Abu Salman al-Faranci introduces new methods to entice potential terrorists living in the West to commit murder in France, telling them to “terrorize them and do not allow them to sleep due to fear and horror.” Abu Salman continues, “There are weapons and cars available and targets ready to be hit… Kill them [infidels] and spit in their faces and run over them with your cars.” He goes on: “Even poison is available, so poison the water and food of at least one of the enemies of Allah.”  Abu Maryam hopes that infidels “will even fear travelling to the market.”


5 Non-Muslims Who Know More About Islam than the Caliph of the Islamic State



They call themselves the Islamic State. They claim to be the restorers of the caliphate, the ones who have finally fulfilled the most cherished aspiration of jihadists and Islamic supremacists the world over. They declare their intention to govern their domains solely and wholly by Islamic law, acting swiftly and ruthlessly to end any practice that does not conform to that law. They repeatedly proclaim their piety, ascribing all their victories to Allah and submitting themselves in all things to his will.

Yet despite all this, Western leaders, the mainstream media, and much of the public are certain of one thing: the Islamic State has nothing, nothing whatsoever, to do with Islam. Read about the 5 people who tell us so.




ISRAEL


He spoke slowly and hauntingly, just two feet from me, a conscience of mankind indicting humanity for the world’s oldest hate. “I don’t understand it. It has not subsided since I was a teenager in Auschwitz. I often raise my eyes to the heavens and I tell God, “If you don’t want us then dismiss us already. But why do you insist on demanding endless Jewish dead.” The speaker was Elie Wiesel.

A world that is passive and indifferent to the murder of Jews should beware lest it too become victims of the world’s oldest hatred. As Samantha Power said of anti-Semitism in Berlin, “It is often the canary in the coal mine for the degradation of human rights more broadly. When the human rights and fundamental freedoms of Jews are repressed, the rights and freedoms of other minorities and other sectors are often not far behind.”



Coping with Barbaric, Religiously Inspired Terrorism

The horror that engulfed the entire nation in the wake of the barbaric murder of Jews engaged in prayer in a Jerusalem synagogue remains palpable.  This latest escalation of incitement is yet another extension of the traditional hatred against Jews inculcated among the Arabs but which accelerated after the Oslo accords. Yasser Arafat and then Abbas have effectively brainwashed generations of Arabs -- from kindergarten age -- into fanatically hating Jews and sanctifying as “martyrs” those willing to sacrifice their lives and gain paradise by killing them.

The silent American Jewish establishment must now also speak out.

Ambassador Ron Prosor's Statement at the United Nations General Assembly on the Question of Palestine



“I stand before the world as a proud representative of the State of Israel and the Jewish people. I stand tall before you knowing that truth and morality are on my side.  And yet, I stand here knowing that today in this Assembly, truth will be turned on its head and morality cast aside.”






UNITED STATES




Giving thanks to a brave congresswoman whose life is now in danger

When the new Congress is sworn in next year, Michele Bachmann will no longer be serving. And it will be a major loss to America. Bachmann has been a rare and nearly lone voice sounding the alarm about the threat of Islam and about government infiltration by the Muslim Brotherhood. And for speaking the sobering truth, she has been mocked, ridiculed, dismissed, and/or ignored. Not just by those on the left, but by those on the right, as well.


Michael Brown, Gaza, and Muslim Americans

The national CAIR office urged imams across the country to discuss the shooting of Michael Brown and racial equality in their Friday sermons, asserting that “Muslims have the responsibility to stand for those who are marginalized or suffer injustice.” To this end, CAIR has invited Rev. Al Sharpton to be the keynote speaker at its 20th anniversary dinner to be held next month. ISNA, another prominent Muslim-American organization, released a statement on August 13 calling for a federal investigation into the shooting of Michael Brown.


Obama Administration Releases More Gitmo Detainees



When the Obama administration released one of Guantanamo Bay’s longest serving detainees earlier this month—the first since May when five captives were released in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl—we knew it was a clear sign more would soon be coming.






How Many Lies Have Democrats Told To Sabotage The War on Terror?

The origin of the Democratic lies that fog the nature of the war against the Islamists and make us vulnerable to their attacks can be traced to the Democrats’ defection from the war in Iraq, the second front in the so-called “war on terror.” “Bush Lied People Died.” This was the disgusting charge with which progressives and Democrats sought successfully to demonize America’s commander-in-chief and demoralize the nation as it went to war to take down the terrorist-supporting monster regime of Saddam Hussein and eventually defeat Ansar-al-Islam and al-Qaeda in Iraq

AROUND THE WORLD

Afghanistan: Devastated Mother Watched Helplessly as Dozens of Terrorists Murdered Her Son. But the Killers Were Gravely Unprepared for Her Wrath.

A mother in Afghanistan is gaining national attention after she fiercely fought back against dozens of Taliban militants who killed her son in the country’s dangerous Farah province. Reza Gul reportedly watched in horror as her son, a police officer who was apparently working at a village checkpoint with a team of fellow officers, was gunned down by a band of terrorists. After witnesses such a tragic event unfold before her eyes, the mother said she “couldn’t stop myself and picked up a weapon.”

The firefight lasted for roughly seven hours. But instead of the Taliban militants claiming yet even more innocent victims, authorities found the bodies of 25 dead terrorists on the battlefield. Another five terrorists — all of whom clearly weren’t prepared for the mother’s wrath — were said to have been wounded.


The Netherlands:  Party for Freedom (PVV) Proposes plan Against Islamic Terrorism



Islam shows its true face in Syria and Iraq. Gruesome fanatics, including terrorists with Dutch passports, leave a trail of blood throughout the Middle East. The Netherlands have to protect themselves. If we don’t, the barbaric scenes that play today in Syria and Iraq will soon be repeated in our country. The PVV proposes 10 concrete measures to protect the Netherlands against Islamic terror.






Russia considering UN action on protecting Middle East Christians

Russia is currently considering the possibility of initiating a draft decision of the UN Human Rights Council on the protection of Christians in the Middle East and North Africa. Russian experts are now working on this document. Why hasn’t the United States initiated such action? Did you know that ISIL (the Islamic State) has levied head tax on all Christians staying in the respective territories? Moreover, Christians are prohibited from building new and repairing old churches and monasteries.


Qatar and Terror

Although outwardly more liberal than the Saudis, the Qataris have surpassed them as financiers of extremism and terrorism. U.S. officials reckon that Qatar has now replaced Saudi Arabia as the source of the largest private donations to the Islamic State and other al-Qaeda affiliates. Qatar, the world's wealthiest country per capita, also has the unsavory reputation for the mistreatment and effective slavery of much of its workforce.




UAE Doubles Down on Designation of CAIR as Terrorists



The UAE reaffirmed its decision to designate the Council on American Islamic Relations a terrorist org, warning the West of Islamic extremists. The objective is “to cut off access to all forms of material and moral support for terrorism, to drain its resources, to prevent the incitement of terrorist crimes, to prevent the praising of terrorism and to work to stop the spreading of such crimes or any encouragement of the committing of them.”


Is Russia Banning Islam?



Russia appears to be taking serious moves to combat the “radicalization” of Muslims within its border.  Recent pro-Islamic reports are complaining that Russia is banning the Islamic hijab—the headdress Islamic law requires Muslim women to wear—and, perhaps even more decisively, key Islamic scriptures, on the charge that they incite terrorism. In the words of Arabic news site Elaph, “Russia is witnessing a relentless war on the hijab.  It began in a limited manner but has grown in strength, prompting great concern among Russia’s Muslims.”



There is no light without darkness and without evil, the good often fails to find their own voice. It is in the presence of slavery that we remember the worth of freedom. Men and nations are forged in war; not only the war of shell and shot, but the war of ideas. War teaches us to fight for what we have. Wars of ideas teach us to stand up for what we believe.

We face a hard fight, not only for our freedom, but the freedom of the world. The international left has made America its special project. It knows that if it can extinguish the hope of liberty in this land then it will drive the rest of those who hope for freedom across the ocean deeper into despair. And it wants your despair. It wants you to give up so that the rest of the world gives up too and bows under its chains.




Democracy’s slow extinction

Those who tell the truth are now silenced by those who tell lies. The voices of those who speak out in defence of our freedoms are constrained by those who remain indifferent and apathetic even while these freedoms are under siege. Like sheep inured to the slaughter we have become inured to the constant stream of lies from Western journalists and politicians more concerned about forgiving Islam its crimes and cruel manifestations—no matter how atrocious—than they are about preventing Democracy’s slow extinction.


Islamism, Islamofascism, and Islam

Let’s be clear when we speak of the enemy. With the Muslim wars, there are probably three relevant semantic distinctions to be made. Islam is the big tent phenomenon, for the most part an apathetic, apologetic, passive, or mostly bovine majority.  Islamists are the proselytizing militants or financiers, missionaries, domestic or immigrant activists who believe they act in the name of a “great” religion. Islamofascists are the kinetic Muslims, those who oppress or kill in the name of Mohamed, the Koran, or imperial Islam. The terms are related, but not necessarily interchangeable.

How many Russians were Communists and how many Germans were Nazis in the beginning? The numbers never have to be large. Militancy and terror are usually a minority and minorities still prevail. A kinetic vanguard can always depend on the silence and apathy of majorities. The Islamist menace is no different today.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING



This is what we at ACT! For Canada are grateful for: 



Diana West gives thanks for the counter-Jihad network who works tirelessly, behind the scenes, to bring us the truth that the media does not.  “They do not work for the glory – and certainly not for the money – but they work because they believe that “The death of democracy is not likely to be an assassination from ambush. It will be a slow extinction from apathy, indifference, and undernourishment.”



I am giving special thanks this year for the hard work of patriots who toil without recompense to expose the many vectors of Islamic subversion currently eroding the already hollowed-out institutions of Western society.

What exactly did the Muslims preach from their mock-up mosque inside the cathedral far from Christian symbols and imagery save one cross that Muslim worshippers literally turned their back upon?



I am able to tell you about the contents of the service only thanks to the incredible international counter-jihad movement. This movement lives and breathes in the ether of the Internet, on an array of blogs, on YouTube. This case of Islam at the cathedral shows how the network works.

First, the blog Vlad Tepes captured the streaming footage of the 80-minute Muslim service. Next, Arabic translator Rita Malik assessed the English and Arabic service for Gates of Vienna and provided a summary that was posted there. Enter Islamic expert Andrew Bostom, author of several indispensable books on Islamic jihad, anti-Semitism and Islamic totalitarianism, who analyzed several of the Koranic verses used in the service by consulting some of the essential Koranic commentaries that Muslims use to understand their religious book. Bostom posted his findings at his blog, AndrewBostom.org.

Finally, Gates of Vienna and Vlad Tepes compressed everything to create a watchable, educational YouTube video of four and a half minutes. (As a bonus, Gates of Vienna also posted the short video's transcript.) Soon, the video was mirrored at other counter-jihad sites, such as the Scandanavian blog Tundra Tabloids and Denmark's EuropeNews.dk.


Swift and seamless volunteer operations like this keep anyone informed who wants to be informed. For their extremely hard work, I am truly thankful.”
