‘Islam, It’s Also Our History!’: EU Funded Exhibition, Featuring Fake Bomb, Opens After Terror Delay

Isabelle Benoit, a historian with Tempora, the organisation that designed the exhibition, told AP: “We want to make clear to Europeans that Islam is part of European civilisation and that it isn’t a recent import but has roots going back 13 centuries.”

American Politician Asks Muslim Constituents: “Do You Beat Your Wife?”

A local representative in Oklahoma who once called Islam a “cancer” has issued a series of questions – including “Do you beat your wife?” – for Muslim constituents hoping to meet him.

Republican State Rep. John Bennett’s office distributed the questionnaire as Cair-OK, the local chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, ran its third annual Muslim day at the Capitol building in Oklahoma City last week. Mr Bennett’s office presented the list of questions to three Muslim school students who sought to speak to him at his office.

One of the 18 questions in the form is reported to have read: “(The prophet) Mohammed was a killer of pagans, Christians and Jews that did not agree with him… do you agree with his example?”

The form invites Muslims to clarify whether they would denounce groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah and whether they believed former Muslims should be punished for relinquishing their faith. They were also asked whether they believed the application of Sharia law should extend to non-Muslims.

The questionnaire drew a swift rebuke from civil rights groups including Cair – the US’s largest Muslim rights group which has a 40,000-strong membership in Oklahoma.

“Nobody should be vetted with stupid, Islamophobic, hateful, bigoted questions before they can meet with their representative,” said Adam Soltani, the executive director of Cair-OK.

Mr. Bennett would not ask such things if people did not profess and practise them.

greek-fire-712306

Around 4,000 asylum seekers have escaped the camp in the Aegean island of Lesbos.

The blaze at the Moria camp has left a trail of destruction including damaged tents and housing units.

Police sources claimed a number of migrants had begun the blaze which ripped through the facility.

Crowding and long delays in the processing of asylum requests has repeatedly caused simmering tensions at Moria.

Trudeau Is Still Stupid

It’s a congenital thing:

“We should be past tolerance in Canada,” Trudeau said. “In Canada, can we speak of acceptance, openness, friendship, understanding? It is about where we are going and what we are going through every day in our diverse and rich communities.”

These are the same “diverse and rich communities” that Trudeau refused to call “barbaric” and do this to women who don’t cover up:

What Dano threw at her was sulfuric acid that melted her eyes to the sockets and left little of her face. Her nose and lips also disintegrated and one of her ears was severely disfigured. At the time, she was only fifteen, and her life would be changed forever.”

**

Equally worried about the growth of the pro-Sharia campaign is Alan Craig, a former Newham councillor who has lived in East London for 30 years. He says: ‘This is the public tip of a hidden iceberg.’

He points to the example of street advertisements featuring girls in swimsuits, which are regularly blacked out by Islamic activists who paint burkhas over the models’ bodies. He says Muslim women have also been threatened with violence for not wearing burkhas.

**

Women are not entitled to respect when they walk around without a Hijab. They are to blame for it when they are attacked,” Imam Shahid Mehdi said.

“All the crimes that occur against women is because they are not covered. When they are not covered, you have no respect for them. “

“She disobeys her master, there are two places in the Qur’an has ordered her to cover themselves (…) Women make a clean society dirty when they walk around without a Hijab. They are not entitled to respect and are not valuable as those who wear a Hijab. “

PM Trulander can play the ‘diverse” community card until his blue blood turns bluer. At the end of the day, he is much like his father in his views of women: anything goes as long as he gets his way (mouths shut and so forth).

No real man would defend this misogynistic thumb-in-the-eye-of-the-culture-at-large. A real man would have principles, not a voters base to exploit.

Also: Trudeau upstages a dying man and will do so at his funeral, too.

Guaranteed.

Obama’s Post-Orlando Tirade: Islam is Sacred and Beyond Reproach

Obama at Mosque-GettyImages-508196376

President Obama speaks at Muslim Brotherhood-linked mosque in February 2016.

From Obama’s open support of the Muslim Brotherhood early in his first term and during its brutal ascent to power in Egypt, to his inclusion in his administration of Brotherhood-linked officials, to his direct support of Al Qaeda-linked factions in Libya and Syria (which directly enabled the rise of ISIS), he has accomplished a polar shift in American foreign policy away from forces which embrace human rights, pluralism, and religious liberty for all people — liberal Western concepts which derive straight from Christian principles of tolerance, love of neighbor, and care for the downtrodden — and towards what can only be described as forces of evil, persecution and bloodlust.

Victim of Muslim Slavers in Scotland speaks out…

A slave in Scotland: ‘I fell into a trap – and I couldn’t get out’

What’s left of the Stewart hotel sits on a steep hill overlooking sheep-flecked fields, tumbling hedgerows and distant snow-capped mountains in Appin, west Scotland. Even in its prime, the 37-bedroom hotel would have been an eyesore, but now it’s a wreck, the windows smashed, the roof collapsed by months of winter rain.

Just a few years ago, hundreds of tourists passed through this hotel each summer, drawn by the natural beauty of the West Highlands. According to scathing reviews on TripAdvisor and other travel websites, the view was the only good thing about the hotel. Archived posts say the rooms were filthy, the taps broken, the food inedible. Many reviewers complain about the staff, describing them as overwhelmed, unskilled and incompetent.

My diversity is enriched reading about Islam’s penchant for slavery, how bout you?

Sex Education Offered to So-Called Asylum Seekers in Germany

That is NOT going to help:

The German government is rushing to integrate hundreds of thousands of asylum seekers, offering them language classes and the prospect of work. But in a country known for its matter-of-fact acceptance of public nudity and creative forms of lovemaking, it is also trying to teach the mostly-Muslim migrants about the joy of sex.

In a culture that treats women as chattel and children as potential sex objects, how is the “joy of sex” going to help? That would involve teaching human dignity which Islamists do not believe in and which sex education refuses to teach at all.

Dramatic moment illegal Muslim prayer hall is blown up after cops find stash of explosives

Russia-blows-up-bombs

Earlier, Russia’s special forces had stormed the prayer hall, leading to the detention of 53 men and the alleged discovery of the explosive substances.

The men are thought to be part of the ultra- conservative Salafi movement, which is within Sunni Islam and takes a ‘fundamentalist’ approach toward Islam.

“Illegal Muslim Prayer Hall” has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?

Saudi Arabia: The World’s Biggest Hypocrite

This gem from Raymond Ibrahim was written nearly two weeks ago but is well worth the read.


 

Saudi Arabia wants Western cartoonists, comedians, and others—people who represent only their individual selves—to stop mocking the religious beliefs and symbols of Islam, even as the Arabian kingdom’s own institutionalized policy is to vilify and discriminate against the religious beliefs and symbols of all other faiths.

Not a single non-Muslim worship building is allowed there; the highest Islamic authority decreed that it is “necessary to destroy all the churches of the region.”  Whenever Christians are suspected of meeting in a house for worship—or as one Saudi official once complained, “plotting to celebrate Christmas”—they are arrested and punished.

Muslim Model Wants to Be Miss Italy

A model of Moroccan origin who hopes to become the first Muslim Miss Italy has vowed to defy critics who accuse her of insulting Islam by taking part in the beauty pageant.

Ahlam El Brinis, 20, who was born in the northern Veneto region to Moroccan parents, has received threats and insults on social media for her decision to participate in the contest next month. She has been criticized for posing in bikinis, lacy underwear and revealing clothes, with some Muslims accusing her of bringing Islam into disrepute.

But she has labelled her critics “ridiculous people with too much time on their hands” and said she has drawn strength from the support of her grandmother back in Morocco, who told her “religion is in the heart, not in the choice of clothes you wear.” “There have been insults but there have been far more messages of encouragement, both from friends and people I have never met,” the model told La Repubblica newspaper. “Religion should have nothing to do with a beauty contest.”

Is Jihad Chiefly Fueled By Sexual Dysfunction?

Hardcore Muslim society excuses this, because they live ‘hard lives” or something, and are doing Allah’s will, beheading innocent people. If you murder people, you get to get your rocks off however you like. Even your rapes are holy.

Thus, a society has created a situation in which boys are not allowed to have a sexual interest in girls unless they become murderers.

Bottle Throwing Muslims to French Pensioners at Picnic: “We’re Going to Charlie Hebdo You!”

Algerian+War+Veterans[1]

When the tables had just been set up in the shade of the trees right next to the city-owned land of a building, a rain of projectiles fell on the guests: empty beer and whisky bottles, broom handles and stones thrown with slingshots, according to a witness quoted by Le Progrès: ‘We heard them shouting: “We’re going to Charlie Hebdo you, you filthy French shit!”.’

Activist who praised Jihadi John as “beautiful” caught on video backing jihad

Asim Qureshi, research director at Cage, called on Muslims to back jihadists at an anti-US rally held in London in 2006.

In an emotive speech caught on video, Mr Qureshi told a crowd gathered at rally organised by Hizb-ut Tahrir, an Islamist group: “When we see the example of our brothers and sisters fighting in Chechnya, Iraq, Palestine, Kashmir, Afghanistan, then we know where the example lies. When we see Hezbollah defeating the armies of Israel, we know where the solution is and where the victory lies.

NYT on France: Laïcité under severe challenge from vibrant, growing religion of Islam

Laïcité, the concept of state secularism, is a defining principle of the French republic, right up there with the national motto of liberty, equality and fraternity. Developed in the French Revolution, which targeted the Roman Catholic Church as much as the monarchy, laïcité governs the public life of a nation that sharply delineates the realms of Caesar and God.

But laïcité, pronounced lie-EE-see-tay, is now under severe challenge from Islam, the vibrant, growing religion that arrived in France with post-colonialism. Islam does not easily accept the ban on the public exercise of religion, whether it is the full veil for women or gender-mixed swimming pools, Friday Prayer that overcrowds mosques or halal food in schools.

Now, in the aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo killings and an attack on a Jewish supermarket by Islamist gunmen, there are new questions about laïcité and whether it is being fairly applied in a France with an estimated five million Muslims — close to 8 percent of the population and making up the largest number of regular worshipers…
