Religious groups turn violent when they feel threatened by another sect and are then forced to challenge their own beliefs, scientists discover

The Alter of Islam

Religious conflict can occur when a group of people who share the same belief or religion feel threatened by another expanding group.

This xenophobia then becomes violent in 20 per cent of cases when people start to question their own beliefs and ideals.


Hooray! (The Religion of) Peace comes to yet another African country

As we all know, Africa is a complete hell-hole and pretty much all African countries are corrupt, worthless, impoverished sh*tholes. Moreover, in spite of the $250bn in development aid money that has been given to Africa since the mid-1960s, there are still not many signs of all the water wells and roads and hospitals and electricity plants and schools and suchlike that we in the West have paid for many times over. Yet most of Africa’s rulers have become billionaires.

Minnesota mall attacker referenced Allah before stabbing rampage, police chief says

ISIS claimed responsibility after a knife-wielding man injured eight people at a mall in central Minnesota Saturday evening, a bloody rampage during which he reportedly asked at least one victim whether they were Muslim and referenced Allah.

St. Cloud Police Chief William Blair Anderson said the suspect, whom he did not identify, was shot and killed by an off-duty police officer from another jurisdiction. All but one of the eight victims had been treated and released from a local hospital and all were expected to survive their injuries.

ISIS on Sunday morning claimed responsibility for the attack, issuing a statement via a source to its Amaq news service.

“The executor of the stabbing attacks in Minnesota yesterday was a soldier of the Islamic State and carried out the operation in response to calls to target the citizens of countries belonging to the crusader coalition,” the statement said.

Daniel Greenfield: ‘Why does Minnesota have a Muslim terrorism problem? Because large numbers of Somalis were dumped there.’


Nine killed in ‘al-Shabab attack’ on security facility in Mogadishu

An attack on a security facility in the Somali capital has left at least nine people dead, including four attackers, police said.

Captain Mohamed Hussein said suspected militants from the Islamic extremist group al-Shabab carried out the attack on the Central Investigations Department in Mogadishu.

He said the assault started with twin suicide car bombings at the gates of the security facility, then at least two gunmen on foot fought their way inside.


Four arrested over Isis plot to attack Düsseldorf

In a statement, German federal prosecutors confirmed that three Syrian nationals had been arrested and their homes searched: 25-year-old Mahood B., 27-year-old Hamza C. and 31-year-old Abd Arahman A.K.

A further warrant was issued for a 25-year-old Syrian, Saleh A., currently under arrest in France.

The three arrested in Germany lived in North Rhine-Westphalia, Baden-Württemberg and Brandenburg.

The target of the attack plan is alleged to have been the historic city centre of the North Rhine-Westphalian capital.

Prosecutors said that two suicide bombers were to blow themselves up on Heinrich-Heine-Allee, a broad street with a number of public transport links including U-Bahn and tram stations.

Then the other attackers were supposed to kill more passers-by with rifles and explosives.              h/t


Mississauga Mayor Defends Her Remarks Against Anti-Mosque Opponent

That’s nice.

Does Miss Crombie know that Islam isn’t a race?

Mississauga’s mayor is being applauded for standing up against racism after she called out a resident for an anti-mosque website and flyer.

“While others talk the talk you walk the walk. You are our rock Madam Mayor,” real estate agent Moezzam Saeed Alvi tweeted Thursday after Mayor Bonnie Crombie said she would not issue a public apology to residents in the city’s northwest neighbourhood of Meadowvale who are lobbying against a proposed mosque.

Crombie accused one resident of hate mongering during a Sept. 21 planning and development committee meeting. In a deputation, Meadowvale resident Kevin Johnston spoke about traffic concerns, as well as taxpayers having to pay for water and sewer hook-ups to the proposed mosque but the municipality not receiving any revenue back because places of worship are not taxed.

Crombie asked Johnston if he had handed out flyers and created a website that also spoke about concerns regarding an increase in vandalism, crime and a loss of freedom of speech if the mosque went ahead. He indicated he had.

“This is heinous. This is hate-mongering,” Crombie said during the meeting, a video of which is on YouTube. She held up a printed out copy of Johnston’s website, which has since been changed. “You should be ashamed of yourself.”

During this week’s council meeting, a petition was brought forward calling on Crombie to publicly apologize. She refused.

On Thursday, Crombie was unavailable for an interview, but said in a written statement to Yahoo Canada News that she “will not apologize for standing up to those who seek to divide us.”

“I will always speak out against hateful language, which is unacceptable at any time,” she said.

“I called this resident out for his comments. I will not apologize for that. If I had to do it all over again, I would do it exactly the same way.”

Council approved a zoning application to allow the Meadowvale Islamic Centre to build a mosque on what was residential land.


Here are some pictures of Islam’s inter-faith tolerance:

A woman walks by the remains of HKI Suka Makmur Protestant Church in Aceh Singkil, Aceh. It was set ablaze by Islamists.



Twenty-one homes belonging to Christians were destroyed by ISIS in Nineveh Plain, northeast of Mosul.


An empty place remains where the Bamiyan Buddhas once stood. They were destroyed by the Taliban in 2001.


So- when is Bonnie Crombie (and even the lazy-minded blowhards who sputter out blanket nonsense but don’t actually nail the real problem) going to stand against this sort of violence and destruction?


Australian Cartoonist Larry Pickering under police protection after posting prophet Muhammad picture online

This cartoon is currently on display at his site.

CONTROVERSIAL cartoonist Larry Pickering has been placed under protective surveillance by counter terrorism police after he posted a derogatory picture depicting the prophet Muhammad on his website.

Mr Pickering was visited at home by detectives from Queensland Police on Sunday evening.

The officers, who arrived unannounced, said Mr Pickering had “upset a lot of people” and they were putting the four-time Walkley Award-winning cartoonist under high-priority protective surveillance.

“They didn’t say specifically why they were there,” Mr Pickering said.

“I guess they must have picked up some intelligence or chatter after I did the cartoon.

“They gave me their details and special phone numbers and said if I call they will be there in minutes.”

Pickering has been a controversial figure for years… He told the Herald Sun he had no plans to stop posting material…

His site is called The Pickering Post.


Iran’s SNSC: Takfiri Extremists Created to Promote Islamophobia

“The arrogant system’s pursuit of the Islamophobia policy by creating and magnifying the savage acts of the terrorist Takfiri groups is the other side of the coin in its fight against the Islamic Awakening,” Shamkhani said, addressing a ceremony in Tehran on Monday.

And this, he said, happened while Islam is the religion of kindness and the Shiite and Sunni Muslims assume defending the values and promoting humane concepts as their responsibility.

Shamkhani also stressed Iran’s commitment to defending the unity and security of the Muslims world, and said, “Today, the correctness and success of Iran’s policies for controlling and fighting the goals of the arrogant powers has been proved to the world nations more than ever, and it’s been proved that Iran’s efforts to create security in the Muslim world are real, effective and without any religious affiliation.”

In relevant remarks in November, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei warned that the bullying powers were using every method and tool to spread Islamophobia among the world people.

“The world expansionist and bullying powers are highly concerned about the attraction of Islam’s freedom message and the danger posed to their interests and have used all instruments, specially art tools, to intimidate the entire world people from Islam,” Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing Iranian Army cadets in Tehran…

Takfir is the practice of one Muslim saying another is not a true Muslim at all. This is currently being used heavily by Sunni Islamic State against Shi’ites.

As per usual, it has nothing to do with Islam itself, but is a conspiracy by world’s (unnamed) “expansionist and bullying powers” to prevent people from seeing how the marvel of Islam.

Should Presidents Call Islam a ‘Religion of Peace?’ Two George W. Bush Officials Debate

MIAMI BEACH — Two former George W. Bush administration officials, Elliot Abrams and Michael Gerson, debated Monday whether it is appropriate for presidents to call Islam a religion of peace.

“What is authentic Islam? Is ISIS an authentic form of Islam, or is it not? I think it’s very important that the United States government shut-up about that question,” Abrams, senior fellow for Middle Eastern Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, declared at the Ethics and Public Policy Center’s Faith Angle Forum.

“It used to annoy me enormously when President [George W.] Bush, for whom I was working, would say, ‘Islam is a religion of peace,'” continued Abrams, who served as deputy assistant to the president and deputy national security adviser.

Abrams was speaking on a panel, “Religious Conflict and the Future of the Middle East,” with Shadi Hamid, a fellow with the Project on U.S. Relations with the Islamic World in the Center for Middle East Policy at the Brookings Institution.

The “real response” to Bush, and later President Barack Obama, declaring the Islam is a religion of peace, he said, should be “where is their theology degree from?”

“For American government officials to be telling Muslims, ‘I know real Islam’ … is ridiculous,” he added. “… It would be an outrage about Judaism and Christianity as well. … For government officials who are 99 percent Christians to be trying to find what is authentic in Islam seems to me to be a fool’s errand”…
