wajidi-said-at-presbyterian-church-usaPresbyterian Church USA offers prayers to Allah, acknowledges Muhammad as prophet

The assembled Presbyterians no doubt thought they were being wonderfully open-minded and ecumenical; they did not realize that Wajidi Said was openly proselytizing for Islam. “Lead us on the straight path” is straight from the Fatihah, the Opening, the Qur’an’s first chapter and the most common and oft-repeated prayer in Islam. Islamic scholars identify the straight path with Islam itself.

He was calling the Presbyterians to Islam. And they were eagerly receptive, of course, not wanting to appear “Islamophobic.” This is what “dialogue” is all about for Islamic supremacists: proselytizing. But Christian leaders cannot and will not grasp that point.

statue of libertyIs the Statue of Liberty actually a man?

A controversial new theory suggests the sculptor who created the Statue of Liberty may have used his brother as the template rather than his mother, as commonly believed.

The idea is set out in a new series of Secrets of America’s Favourite Places to be broadcast on the Discovery Channel on Sunday.

charleston victimsCharleston church shooting victims sue FBI over ‘federal negligence that enabled killer to purchase handgun’ he used to slay nine people

Lawyers for three people, including Felicia Sanders and Polly Shepard, who survived the attack, and the estates of five who were slain inside the Emanuel AME Church by shooter, Dylann Roof, say the FBI negligently failed to thoroughly check Roof’s background before he bought the gun last year.

If the agency had done its job, Roof’s prior drug arrest would have shown up, and the bureau would have denied his purchase, the lawsuits filed Thursday allege.

The rule, which is expected to affect around 10 per cent of cars in the city, is set to be enforced against any car registered before 1 January 1997 within the city’s streets from Monday to Friday, 8am to 8pm. Classic cars, built more than 30 years ago, will be exempt.

Restrictions will become tighter over the decade until 2020, when the only private vehicles allowed to drive in central Paris will be cars registered after 2011 and motorcycles registered after July 2015, according to French media reports.

Iran-Internet-Access-DeniedIsraeli Minister: Shut down Facebook, Internet in Hevron to end incitement to terrorism

How serious are Israelis about dealing with terrorism? Far more than politicians in Washington, D.C., it appears. On Friday, Arutz Sheva reported that Jewish Home chairman and Education Minister Naftali Bennett presented a plan to stop the latest terror threat against Israelis. Part of that plan includes shutting down Facebook access in the Hevron area.

“Viral terrorism cannot be stopped with a closure,” Bennett said Friday. “No barrier will stop terrorists who see that the family of the murderer is not paying the price. We cannot settle for the imposition of closures or stopping the funds to the Palestinian Authority as the family of the terrorist continues to receive payments. Without action, the family of the murderer of Hallel Ariel will receive its pension on the first of August.”

unIsrael thwarts attempt to insert language justifying terror in UN resolution

Israel’s Mission to the United Nations said that it managed to thwart an attempt by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to insert language justifying terrorism in the United Nations Counter-Terrorism Strategy resolution passed on Friday by the General Assembly.

The resolution, which was adopted by consensus, focuses on adapting the UN’s global counter-terrorism strategy to current threats by calling the international community to “step up their efforts” against terror and reaffirm their unequivocal condemnation of terrorism “in all its forms and manifestations, committed by whomever, wherever and for whatever purposes.”

Yet according to the Israeli mission at the international body, the OIC attempted to include a section in the 15-page resolution stating that “self-determination and national liberation does not constitute terrorism.”

trump blue tieTrump looking at placing military retirees on the border — Muslim group outraged

During a question-and-answer session yesterday at a town hall event in Manchester, N.H., an audience member asked Donald Trump, “Why aren’t we putting our military retirees on that border or in TSA? Get rid of all these hibi-jabis they wear at TSA?”

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) focused has on the word “hibi-jabis.” The word was used by the person asking the question, not Mr. Trump. Mr. Trump was responding to the question, focused on the idea of using military retirees as border agents. This is consistent with Mr. Trump’s previous policy statements on border and national security.

What CAIR fears is a Trump administration that will not give special preference to Muslims when it comes to immigration, border security, law enforcement and national security. That is the issue, not the word hibi-jabis.

nolen-229x300Oklahoma Beheading Case Another Example Judges, Attorneys Resistant to Linking Barbaric Behavior to Islam

How many Muslims who kill in the name of Allah have to profess their loyalty to the teachings of Islam in open court before judges and attorneys realize Islam mandates violence according to sharia (Islamic Law)?

On September 24, 2014, Alton Nolen, a Muslim, sliced the neck of Colleen Hufford – a former co-worker at Vaughan Foods in Moore, Oklahoma – and then proceeded to saw her head off.

As the case has moved through the system, defense attorneys, prosecutors, and the judge in the case seem to have no clue about what Islam teaches and why it is pertinent to the case.

Nolen, whose appearance prior to his killing of Colleen Hufford was increasingly visibly sharia compliant, stated he follows the teaching of Islam – ie the Sharia.

As Americans show their love of country this Independence Day, they’re being forced to battle thieves, vandals and arsonists.

Beneath The Propaganda, ISIS Supporters Worry Online

Posts uploaded by ISIS supporters to the group’s al-Minbar forum in recent days provide a rare glimpse into the mood of Islamic State adherents these days—painting a starkly different picture than the triumphant propaganda material released by ISIS media. In its official communications, ISIS never admits weakness or setbacks, even after its biggest losses. But outside the spin, members are candidly analyzing why ISIS lost, comforting their friends, and bemoaning the events in Fallujah.
