Urgent Messages to the Muslim World

The first reaction of the U.S. after 9/11 should have been to stop visas from all majority-Muslim countries, except for those of utmost importance. But our politicians’ hands were tied — not by fear of a backlash from Islamic countries, which probably expected a U.S. boycott, but by fear of a backlash from the Western media and Western progressives.

The decision to keep Muslims, refugees and others pouring into the US after 9/11 was wrong and has not done Islam and Muslim reformers a favor. Here is why:

The chaos and bloodshed in the Muslim world, even in the most moderate of Muslim nations, such as Turkey, is between Muslims who want to enforce Islamic sharia law, totally and upon everyone by a theocratic government, and those who want less sharia by installing military rule. The West does not understand that the only form of government that can stand up to a totalitarian Islamic theocracy is a military one and no other. Who could imagine that a military junta could be considered the only savior from Islamic tyrannies that require everyone to live totally, 100%, under the laws of sharia?

Study: Third of France’s Young Muslims Hold Fundamentalist Religious Views

“A purely economic explanation does not seem valid,” said Mr. Gallard on the topic of identifying factors that increase a person’s susceptibility to radical beliefs. “Membership of the Islamic faith is the biggest predictive factor.”

Brussels mayor: All our mosques are controlled by Salafists

The Belgian capital has a problem with extremist Islam, Brussels Mayor Yvan Mayeur said in an interview with newspaper De Morgen published Wednesday, one year after the terror attacks at Zaventem Airport and Maalbeek metro station.

“Everyone knows that all mosques in Brussels are in the hands of Salafists,” Mayeur said, referring to the radical form of Islam. “We need to change this, we need new mosques that follow our democratic rules and that are being controlled by the government.”

However, Mayeur denied claims his city is the capital of jihad, an image that emerged after authorities revealed many of the terror suspects responsible for the Paris and Brussels terror attacks lived or operated from the city.

“Jihadism in Belgium started in Antwerp, then spread to Vilvoorde, Molenbeek and Brussels-north,” Mayeur said.

The Media’s Cheery Ignorance about Islam’s Hostile Ideology

US President Donald Trump repeatedly rebukes the media for “dishonest” coverage and “fake news.”

Despite its fury over the accusations, however, the press continues to prove him right — albeit inadvertently.

Take a recent New York Times piece as an example. In their article, titled “Trump Pushes Dark View of Islam to Center of U.S. Policy-Making” (Feb. 1), authors Scott Shane, Matthew Rosenberg, and Eric Lipton cite a questionable source — Prof. Asma Afsaruddin of the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures at Indiana University — to prove their point that the president is promoting a “master narrative that pits the Muslim world against the West.” This, they claim, appeals to Trump supporters, “who know nothing of Muslims or Islam beyond news reports of terrorist attacks.”

France: The Taboo of Muslim Racism and Anti-Semitism – Part II

Mohamed Merah

In France last month, riots spread — not only to Aulnay sous Bois and other suburbs of Paris in Seine Saint Denis, such as Le Tremblay-en-France, Villepinte, Bobigny, Torcy — but farther, to Argenteuil (Val d’Oise), Mantes la Jolie (Yvelines), Grigny, Les Ulis, Lille (northern France), Marseille (southern France), Dijon (Burgundy) and, of course, right to the heart of Paris.

How many million euros of goods, shops, cars and buses were destroyed? Nobody knows. The daily Le Parisien published a confidential police memo saying that between February 7 and February 11, in Seine-Saint-Denis alone, 200 cars were burned, 160 garbage trucks were burned, hundreds of projectiles were thrown, 40 fireworks were fired at police, and 108 people were arrested.

Indonesia’s masked Sharia law ‘enforcers’ administer agonising lashings

Terrified locals have been violently lashed by Sharia law ‘enforcers’ for spending time with people who are not their wives or husbands in Indonesia.

The public caning, which took place in Banda Aceh province, saw several citizens whipped in front of a huge crowd.

Masked enforcers carried out the punishments as part of their duties as algojo, which translated from Indonesian means ‘the executioner’ and the person responsible for carrying out the death penalty.

Expanded Internet Access in Muslim World Could Spur Next Islamic ‘Culture War’

The expansion of Internet access across the Middle East and North Africa will open communications channels for marginalized social and political groups, including those that criticize the Islamic faith, potentially sparking a culture war across the Muslim world, according to a new report.

As a Muslim, I strongly support the right to ban the veil

I was raised as an observant Muslim in a British family. Women, I was taught, determine their own conduct — including their ‘veiling’. We’d cover our hair only if we freely chose to do so. That’s why I’m baffled by the notion that all good Muslim women should cover their hair or face. My entire family are puzzled by it too, as are millions like us. Not until recent years has the idea taken root that Muslim women are obliged by their faith to wear a veil.

Australia’s First Free-Speech Martyr

I can’t imagine how Bill Leak coped as bravely and for as long as he did, not with the authorities and Muslim fanatics each determined to put his head on a pole. This is Australia’s disgrace: a relentless, speech-enforcing bureaucracy making common cause with head-loppers

Bill Leak. Hero.

Liguria in Italy planning to ban Muslim women wearing face veils from entering hospitals, public offices

Authorities in Liguria, a region in northwest Italy, are set to vote on Friday (10 March) on a proposal to ban women from wearing Islamic face veils called “niqab” in hospitals and other public institutions.

The proposal – made by Giovanni Toti, Regional president of the Forza Italia party, and Liguria’s health councilor, Sonia Viale of the far-right Northern League party – is reportedly aimed at defending women’s freedom.
