The cost of Islam…
A review of the Saudi Ministry of Education’s school religion books currently available at the portal for digital curriculum (visited on September 25, 2017) found out that the curriculum still has violent and intolerant teachings. These books were published for the school year 2016-17.
At a very early stage, the fourth grade, the curriculum begins to teach Saudi children that Muslims are essentially different but superior to all non-Muslims.
An American teenager who was forced to join Isis by her father, has spoken out about her ordeal after escaping from territory still held by the militant group.
“My father, of course, didn’t tell us that we were coming to Syria,” the 15-year-old told US broadcaster CBS News, on the outskirts of the Syrian city of Raqqa, which was until recently a stronghold for the militant group.
“When it was time to get out of the car, and cross the border, he was like ‘you’re going to Syria,’ and it was a really big shock.”
In just a few years, Islamic suburbs of Paris will obey their own set of rules, they will have their own laws, their own principles, maybe even their own police.
Europe has been facing a large number of migrants coming from the war-torn countries in Africa and the Middle East. Today many are concerned about the Islamization of Europe and the failure of Muslims assimilating into their new countries.
White Widow Sally Jones dragged her son to join ISIS where she forced him to behead goats as preparation for executing prisoners.
Sources close to the family have revealed how the terrorist’s son, Jojo, was brainwashed into becoming a jihadi before his mother took him to ISIS camps in the Middle East in 2013.
She died in a US airstrike in June and it is thought the 12-year-old boy was also killed, possibly due to his own mother using him as a human shield.
Special investigator Bruno Jost has completed his report into the police actions surrounding Berlin terror attacker Anis Amri and said officers should have been able to stop Amri before the attack took place, noting they only monitored him “sporadically”.
A failed Taliban bomber was caught with a lorry packed with bombs hidden under boxes of tomatoes as he drove through Kabul.
Afghan police shot and wounded the jihadi carrying 30 yellow and orange plastic containers filled with explosive material and two bombs weighing 100 kilogrammes each.
The man was caught after he failed to stop at a security checkpoint late Saturday, the interior ministry said.
Muslim Persecution of Christians, May 2017
One month after Islamic militants bombed two Egyptian churches during Palm Sunday and killed nearly 50 people in April 2017, several SUVs, on May 26, stopped two buses transporting dozens of Christians to the ancient Coptic Monastery of St. Samuel the Confessor in the desert south of Cairo. According to initial reports, approximately ten Islamic militants, heavily armed and dressed in military fatigues, “demanded that the passengers recite the Muslim profession of faith” — which is tantamount to converting to Islam. When they refused, the jihadis opened fire on them, killing 29 Christians, at least ten of whom were young children. Two girls were aged 2 and 4. Also killed was Mohsen Morkous, an American citizen described as “a simple man” whom “everyone loved,” his two sons, and his two grandsons.
On Monday, the Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage will reconvene to discuss the pros and cons of M-103, the hotly-debated motion that has polarized the country.
The motion is controversial for a number of reasons. Its critics justifiably fear that the motion attempts to thwart freedom of conscience and speech when it comes to criticizing the disturbing and extreme Islamic practices sometimes seen among migrant communities.
THE ping on my phone came at 4am. Bleary-eyed, I reached out of bed for my mobile, wondering what kind of person would message at such an ungodly hour.
From the glow of the screen I could make out that someone with the Twitter handle “@UmmHussain101”, and with a profile picture of a veiled Muslim woman, had liked one of my tweets.
Then it came back to me. A day earlier, I had unmasked in an article in The Sunday Times another Briton who had travelled to Syria to join Isis. But this was no ordinary British Muslim who had gone overseas for jihad. Remarkably, it was a white mother of two from Kent who at one time was the singer and guitarist in an all-girl punk rock band.
Her name was Sally Jones — and she would haunt me for the next three years as she became the world’s most wanted female terrorist. Last week it emerged that the 48-year-old Isis recruiter had finally been killed in a Pentagon air strike.
The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an alliance of Kurdish and Arab militias, were battling the last “Islamic State” (IS) fighters in the northern Syrian city of Raqqa on Sunday.
On Saturday, the SDF had agreed to a proposal that allowed Syrian IS jihadists to leave the city. IS’ foreign fighters were excluded from the evacuation deal.
“Last night, the final batch of fighters (who agreed to leave) left the city,” said SDF spokesman Mostafa Bali, adding that no foreign fighters had left the city. The SDF later said in a statement that around 275 local fighters and their families had left as part of the deal.
