MANILA, Philippines– For decades, followers of the Ahmadiyya faith, a minority sect of Islam, have fallen victim to laws that target them as non-believers in Pakistan. Some of them have sought asylum in the Philippines.
Hassan Ali is a recognized refugee in Metro Manila. He fled his home country of Pakistan in 2014 in fear of persecution for simply being an Ahmadiyya Muslim.
“My pain was psychological,” Ali said. “Discrimination was everywhere and the situations increasingly became so difficult for me to freely practice my religion.”
The Ahmadiyya is a young sect of Islam, formed in 1889 around Mizra Ghulam Ahmed who is claimed to be the messiah or the ‘second advent of Jesus’.
…Katherine Zimmerman, an AEI research fellow and author of the report, said the “crack in the foundation” of American counterterrorism strategy is the “oversimplification of the enemy into a series of discrete groups.” She said U.S. policy largely ignores the fact that Islamist extremists do not exist primarily to attack America or Europe, but to replace the governance systems of Muslim-majority countries with their hardline vision of governance and Islam.
“America’s view of the enemy still centers on the terrorist threats that specific Salafi-jihadi groups pose to the United States homeland or American interests,” Zimmerman wrote. “It misses that these groups are part of a global movement that persists beyond the defeat of specific organization or death of a set of individuals.”

Last Friday, Dutch MP Geert Wilders cancelled his ‘Draw the Prophet Mohammad’ cartoon contest after over 10,000 supporters of the Tehreek-i-Labaik Pakistan party demanded the Pakistani government expel the Dutch Ambassador, and to end all diplomatic ties with the Netherlands.
The contest was due to be held in November, however, Mr Wilders made a statement, saying “To avoid the risk of victims of Islamic violence, I have decided to not let the cartoon contest go ahead.” A 26-year-old Pakistani Islamic Extremist was also arrested last week in The Hague after releasing a video calling for the murder of Mr Wilders.
HERAT, Afghanistan — Over the past four years, thousands of young Afghan Shiite men have been drawn into the war in Syria by Iran, part of a well-financed system of recruitment, training and incentives that funnels Afghan recruits to fight for a repressive Arab government.
The Afghans are soldiers in someone else’s war, propelled by economic woes and religious loyalty to join a foreign fight. Some have lost friends and relatives in battle or sustained severe injuries themselves. As many as 840 have been killed, according to researchers. Survivors can recount hard-fought battles near Aleppo or Damascus, and some believe they are helping to protect sacred Shiite shrines in those areas.
Danish prosecutors have charged Imam Mundhir Abdallah after outrage over a 2017 speech, in which he called on Muslims to kill Jews to fulfil their destiny. It is the first charge of its kind under new religious preaching laws.
The disturbing comments, which were filmed and distributed on the imam’s social media, prompted Danish prosecutors to issue charges for the first time under the new criminal code, introduced in January 2017.
Jihadist threats from homegrown terrorists in America continue to increase each month, with at least nine foreign born individuals living in the United States arrested or convicted in June of attempting to launch attacks on behalf of ISIS and other global terrorist organizations, according to newly released information by Congress.
Those who are puzzled as to how all this killing could take place during what is supposed to be a holy month should remember: because Ramadan is the month in which Muslims redouble their efforts to obey Allah, Ramadan is also quintessentially the month of jihad.
Fighting and killing infidels is, after all, commanded in the Qur’an (cf. 2:191. 4:89, 9:5, 9:289, 47:4, etc.). Thus killing infidels during Ramadan is, for the killers, a holy and sacred act.
A police chief has admitted that more frontline cops could be armed with guns over fears that it would take too long for specially trained armed officers to respond to threats or attacks in rural areas.
Police believe that the current terrorist threat is here to stay, with 12 terrorist murder plots known about in the 12 months. As a result, the National Police Chief’s Council lead for armed policing, Simon Chesterman, said that arming police officers on a routine basis remains an option for the UK force.
Suicide attacks violate Islamic principles, say influential Muslim scholars
There have been so many of these issued over the years that no one can count them all. This one like it’s predecessors will be 100% ineffective yet the the usual suspects in the Media and Government trot it out as proof Islam is a Religion of Peace.
KABUL — At least 48 Afghans waiting at an entrance of the office for voters’ registration were killed Sunday in the capital of Kabul, the Afghan Health Ministry said. The attack was claimed by the Islamic State and was a possible sign of bloody times ahead for long-delayed crucial elections set for Oct. 20.
Scores of other people were wounded in the strike, which happened in the Shiite-dominated Dashte Barchi area of the city where the militant network has unleashed a series of deadly attacks in recent months.
“Whiteness is an academic term that describes a system of race-based hierarchy. Whiteness does not mean white people. Whiteness does not mean white people are bad. You don’t even have to be a white person to subscribe to whiteness. Whiteness is a term that facilitates the understanding of racism as being not just personal ignorance but systemic discriminations.”
See? Whiteness is all about how white societies are intrinsically racist because well “white people”. But that’s not racist you H8tr’s!
