Dearborn Muslims in uproar over Christian proselytizing, police chief admits it “appears to be legal”

This Arab American News story is written as if the Christian preachers were spreading bubonic plague, and of course, for the Muslims interviewed for it, they might as well have been: Islamic law mandates death for those who leave the religion, and so from the Islamic perspective, these preachers were actively endangering the lives of those Muslims to whom they were preaching.

Nonetheless, it is not illegal in the United States to preach Christianity or any other religion. It is only illegal to preach Christianity under Islamic law. But perhaps unsure as to whether Dearborn were under the rule of the U.S. Constitution or Sharia, Dearborn Police Chief Ron Haddad checked with lawyers and got the bad news: “According to our corporation counsel, it appears to be legal to engage in the noted activities under the First Amendment in the park.”

Catholic Prelates ‘unqualified support of Muslim immigration a failure to their followers’

For almost two millennia, Christianity has survived innumerable challenges from without, including heresies, schisms and philosophical “isms,” as well as more than a few challenges from within. But the most dangerous challenge of all may be one that was overcome seven centuries ago but is now regenerated—the challenge posed by Islam. Its agents no longer wield battle axes and scimitars, as their militant predecessors did. They travel instead in the peaceful garb of immigrants and refugees. Their stated purpose for migrating is to find opportunity or to escape persecution and in many cases that claim is no doubt genuine. Yet even in those cases, their Muslim belief obligates them to replace the host country’s ethical, legal, and religious culture with their own Sharia system.

Children’s book to teach students how to deal with terror attack

Children in British primary schools are to be taught how to treat the victims of a terrorist attack, with a book about a cat set loose in a school for mice.
Moggy’s Coming is the creation of the team of doctors behind the Citizenaid app, which advises users what to do and how best to help if there is an active gunman or knife attacker or a suspected or exploded bomb. Its messages are based on the national police message of “run, hide, tell”. The charity adds a fourth message, “treat”.

Edmontonians gather for anti-racism rally, speak out against controversial historical figure

Spurred on by a violent and deadly confrontation between white nationalists and anti-racists in Charlottesville, Va. earlier this month, dozens of Edmontonians gathered at the Alberta legislature Saturday night to speak out against racism and bigotry.

“It’s not only a thing in the United States,” said Bashir Mohamed with the Edmonton chapter of Black Lives Matter. “They think it’s a thing [that’s] isolated to the U.S. And I think that’s a huge mistake because a lot of this hate does fester here.
