A German hostage in the conflict-wracked southern Philippines has been beheaded by Islamist militants, with the video being posted online by the terrorism monitoring group SITE.
In the video released on Monday, the hostage, 70-year-old Jurgen Kantner, can be seen in a jungle clearing with his hands tied behind him. He can be heard saying the words “Now he’ll kill me” before a man starts cutting Kantner’s head off with a large knife.
A Swedish detective who has triggered a row by blaming violent crime on migrants has gone one step further and accused politicians of turning a blind eye to the problem because of ‘political correctness’.
Earlier this month Peter Springare, who has spent more than 40 years in the police, aired his anger on social media when he was told not to record the ethnicity of violent crime suspects.
Pope Francis is a holy man. He is exactly the type of man you would want to preside at your child’s wedding, or your parent’s funeral. He has a real pastoral presence and manifests great love for humanity.
He cares for the poor, has condemned antisemitism and affirmed the connection between the Jewish people and the land of Israel. For these things we should rejoice and be glad.
But as holy as he is, Pope Francis is not currently providing the intellectual leadership needed to defend Christianity and its adherents against the onslaught of jihad.
How f&cked does your cult have to be to think this is a smart move?
The association that runs the An’Nour mosque in Winterthur has lodged a complaint with police against two members of the congregation thought to have reported their imam for inciting murder – a day after ten people were arrested for allegedly beating up the duo in revenge.
On Tuesday morning police in the canton of Zurich arrested ten suspects in a raid on a dozen houses in Winterthur.
One was later released, but eight adults and one juvenile remain in custody, accused of having beaten up and threatened two individuals at the mosque last November.
The pair are thought to have tipped off a journalist about a controversial sermon given by the mosque’s imam in which he called for the congregation to kill Muslims who do not participate in common prayer.
The reporting of the sermon in early November led to the arrest of the imam, who is now facing criminal proceedings for inciting crime and violence.
Now, the association that runs the mosque wants to press charges against the pair for allegedly secretly filming the controversial sermon, according to 20 Minutes.
A policeman managed to foil an attempted suicide attack in eastern Algeria on Sunday, opening fire on the bomber and triggering the explosives belt he was wearing, officials said.
The national police force said the attacker had been approaching a police station in the city of Constantine when he was shot by the officer.
“An officer who was in front of the police headquarters, underneath a building that is home to a dozen families, responded energetically and heroically after several warnings, targeting with precision the explosive belt worn by a terrorist,” police said in a statement cited by APS news agency.
Our schools and universities appear to be turning out some very confused young people, judging by the outrage on Twitter and in parts of the progressive media about criticism of comments by 25-year-old Yassmin Abdel-Magied.
The Sudanese-born activist’s claim on Q&A a fortnight ago that sharia law was a friend of feminism was astounding in its naivety.
Here we have in its purest form, as practised in Iran, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, a legal code based on the Koran that sanctions the execution of homosexuals and the stoning of women for infidelity.
A Bangladeshi-born Muslim community leader has accused Islamic youth activist Yassmin Abdel-Magied of being in denial about how Islam is linked to the abuse of women.
Tanveer Ahmed – a psychiatrist, Sydney councillor and former multicultural adviser – criticised the founder of Youth Without Borders for telling the ABC’s Q&A program Islam was ‘the most feminist religion’.
Dr Ahmed, who also had a comic role with the Seven Network’s No Bingo game show, said the 25-year-old activist was an example of a Muslim who enjoyed the freedoms and privileges of the West but convinced themselves those luxuries were also ‘Islamic’.
Vicious infighting threatens to tear apart the congregation of one of Melbourne’s largest mosques, amid claims that millions of dollars of donations have disappeared and accusations that a sheikh had behaved inappropriately with women.
Why in hell is our government supporting this cult?
The French government’s flagship program to deradicalize jihadists is a “total failure” and must be “completely reconceptualized,” according to the initial conclusions of a parliamentary fact-finding commission on deradicalization.
The preliminary report reveals that the government has nothing to show for the tens of millions of taxpayer euros it has spent over the past several years to combat Islamic radicalization in France, where 238 people have been killed in jihadist attacks since January 2015. The report implies that deradicalization, either in specialized centers or in prisons, does not work because most Islamic radicals do not want to be deradicalized.
Would you want your vaccines produced by a Saudi company that supports jihad? Danes, it seems, may have no choice.
Denmark recently sold its state-owned vaccine manufacturing facility to a conglomerate owned by the Aljomaih Group, a Saudi family dynasty led by Sheikh AbdulAziz Hamad Aljomaih. The sheikh is also the largest single stockholder and chairman of Arcapita Bank, (formerly First Islamic Investment Bank) headquartered in Bahrain. As an Islamic bank, it has a so-called Sharia Supervisory Board comprised of Islamic scholars, who ensure that the bank’s activities comply with sharia (Islamic law).
Several times this week I’ve been warned by supporters of M-103, the anti-Islamophobia motion being debated in Parliament, that if the motion fails even more Muslim youth will become radicalized. They will feel discriminated against in Canada and more likely to fall victim to the hateful propaganda of ISIS or other radical Muslims.
Frankly, if the failure of a House of Commons motion is enough to push someone over to the jihadis’ side, they were headed in that direction anyway.
Iraqi forces fighting ISIS in western Mosul have reportedly told local jihadists they would be offered ‘special care from the judiciary’ if they agreed to kill foreign militants.
The forces, who also encouraged locals to pick up weapons and join the fight against ISIS, made their announcement as they gained control of Mosul airport on Friday and a sprawling military base next to it on the city’s southwestern edge.
‘I can confirm that the airport is fully liberated,’ said Brigadier General Abbas al-Juburi, of the interior ministry’s elite Rapid Response units that led the assault on the airport, which was largely destroyed by ISIS forces,.
