Islamophobia is Fuelling Terrorism, Says UN Chief

(AFP) RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — “Islamophobia” in parts of the world is fuelling terrorism, the head of the United Nations said on a visit to Saudi Arabia Sunday, as anti-immigrant sentiment rises in some countries.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres made the comment to reporters after talks with Saudi King Salman, Crown Prince and Interior Minister Mohammed bin Nayef, and Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Because the murderous supremacist cult of Islam has nothing to with it.

Why Americans (and Canadians) Shouldn’t Normalize The Hijab

The endgame of hijab culture in Islam is totalitarian. For all their talk of ‘renegades,’ Playboy and The Huffington Post are hawking the banal conformity of this age: Anything but Western Christendom.

In an article on how political correctness has made Britain vulnerable to terrorist attacks from the inside, M. G. Oprea’s terrific analysis shows that given the demand for “absolute tolerance for all things Muslim,” Britain has placed itself in an impossible situation. Who will dare to open her mouth about anything suspicious when there’s a chance she may get accused of racism (or worse)? In this Orwellian world, good is bad and bad is good.

We Iraqi immigrants call it the abaya. Annahhariri and Modanisa have a chic modern line that contrasts the drab black sheet my Christian mother had to wear while on her first teaching assignment in a small Iraqi village. There’s of course also the hijab, the burqa, and other articles of clothing belonging to the Muslim religion.

Thousands gather across the country to protest against Islamophobia… allegedly

From the CBC… Thousands gather across the country to protest against Islamophobia

GenuineWitty has a good piece on the Astroturfing of these “spontaneous” anti-Islamophobia/anti-Trump demonstrations.

All the usual suspects are involved, but the media won’t mention that.

Useful Idiots No More – The Trump administration pulls the plug on official Islamophilia.

Islamophobia

“Tell him you are a Muslim, tell him you are a Muslim,” Nancy Pelosi instructed Congressman Andre Carson at an anti-Trump rally on Monday, moments after she had just introduced him as a “Muslim member of Congress.” She apparently felt that the crowd hadn’t sufficiently gotten the point.

Pelosi normally rattles on about the dangers of “religion in politics,” but on Monday night she very much wanted religion in it — and not just any religion, but the most patriarchal of them. To see feminists hawking Islam so feverishly is an amusing spectacle, especially since a day or so later Pelosi had recovered her fear of religion in the public square and creeping Christian patriarchy. She cast Trump’s nomination of Neil Gorsuch as a gift to the religious right — one that imperils all women, not to mention those Americans who “breathe air, drink water, eat food, take medicine, or in any way interact with the courts.”

Why don’t we teach migrants we are a CHRISTIAN country, asks the former archbishop of Canterbury

It is hard to accept – but we must – that the Middle East, the region that gave birth to our faith, could soon see the virtual extinction of Christianity.

It is all the more difficult at this time of year, when we are preparing to commemorate the story of Christ’s coming and his simple origins in what is now the Arab town of Bethlehem.

Yet the facts are these: the Christian population of the Middle East has shrunk from about seven per cent two decades ago to just 1.5 per cent today. And those that remain live in fear.

Atheists Start Petition Against SPLC Branding Atheist Critics of Radical Islam ‘Anti-Muslim Extremists’

hang-asia-bibi

This is what the SPLC defends. Devout Muslims calling for the hanging of Asia Bibi. A Christian accused of blaspheming the death cult “prophet” muhammad.

Atheists have started a petition against the Southern Poverty Law Center’s recent decision to brand atheist authors critical of radical Islam as “anti-Muslim extremists,” with author Sam Harris calling the organization’s decision “dangerous and disgraceful.”

The Will of Allah

As Judeo-Christian belief fades in the West, the ability to appreciate that adherents of another creed still recognise their holy book as the perfect, immutable guide to all of life fades with it. Islam is not Christianity with a beard. Our political leaders need to acknowledge that simple fact.

In a thoughtful article (‘A deal beyond belief’) in The Weekend Australian on July 18, the commentator Greg Sheridan observed, “No one in the West takes the idea of God seriously any more and cannot conceive of a government whose actual real behaviour is determined by theological goals.”

The government Sheridan wrote of is Iran and the god is the Judeo-Christian God of the Bible. Sheridan’s article was commenting on the value of the US-Iran accord on sanctions and nuclear weapons. Almost as an aside, his insightful comment identifies the reason behind the difficulty Western leaders have in coming to grips with the Islamic imbroglio.

Islam's Useful Idiot Liberal Left Apologists

The Left’s Reticence On Islam

The bloody attack on gay night-club in Orlando by a Muslim, the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history, should be a wake-up call for progressives still unwilling to confront the illiberal core of radical Islam. The choice of target was not random, or just an expression of neurotic homophobia. Hatred of homosexuality is part of traditional Islamic sharia law, as is the punishment of death for transgressors. Today homosexuals are still being executed in Muslim majority nations like Iran, Syria, and Saudi Arabia. But just as Islamic misogyny has been ignored or rationalized by the left, so too has this violent intolerance for diversity.

Is There Room in the Catholic Church for Those Who Don’t Believe Islam is a Religion of Peace?

Last Wednesday, I had a lively discussion with Msgr. Stuart Swetland, president of Donnelly College in Kansas City, Kansas, on Relevant Radio’s Drew Mariani Show, on whether or not Islam was a religion of violence. Msgr. Swetland argued not only that Islam was a religion of peace, but that to believe otherwise was to place oneself in opposition to the teaching of the Catholic Church.

Now, I’m a Catholic. But if Msgr. Swetland is correct, I may not be one for long.

An Odor of Intolerance at the New York Times

In February, the New York Times ran a feature highlighting successful efforts to integrate Muslim immigrants into Canadian society. The thinly-disguised editorial agenda of the piece was to rebuke those Americans who were then raising questions about calls from liberals for the acceptance of large numbers of Syrian refugees despite the government’s stated inability to adequately investigate how many were members of ISIS, as some who have moved to Europe have proved to be. But leaving aside the politics, the piece was a bright and cheery rhapsody to the virtues of welcoming and accommodating a population whose customs might differ from some of their neighbors in Toronto. Among the most memorable images from the piece was its paean to a decision by the municipal pool in the Regent Park neighborhood to set up hours where it would be open only to women, which gave Muslims a chance to enjoy the facility without violating their concerns about modesty.

But flash forward a few months to a different venue closer to home, and it turns out that the Times doesn’t think that accommodating the needs of religious believers with their own ideas about men and women bathing together is such a hot idea.
