...for their country. You probably have the choice of whether to use the word Christmas or holiday because of the men and women fighting a war there.
In the Middle East people are tribal and governments are either theocracies or dictatorships. The Sunny and Shiite Muslims all look towards Islam. The radical Islamists terrorise and intimidate using the extremities of Sharia Law to enforce their will. Some countries intend a worldwide Caliphate. Under such a Caliphate no other religion would be tolerated and everyone would be subject to Sharia Law. Once strong governments and dictators... (more)
This is about having a respectful way with religion but looking at educating people about this Cancer of hatred and terrorist cells through religion, they fight at will, kill easily and are happy to die for whatever religion they are battling under. When I often say religion is a problem, don’t think “He is talking about my religion” that is ignorance. It is time now for the whole world to wake up to extremist religion and ask why an abundance of young men are joining religions who will fight, kill and die in its name
As a species we are lost, I hear Christians mock Catholics,... (more)
With violent disturbances breaking out here and there across the Islamic world over The Innocence of Muslims, the YouTube video satirising Mohammed, I was sent a link to a report from Beirut concerning a protest rally, apparently the biggest to date. “Don’t insult our Prophet!”, the story was headed.
Yes, that’s all well and good; these people have a right to protest and a right to feel wounded by a perceived slight to the central figure of their faith. They have a right to feel angry at the film makers, just as some Christians, I feel sure, felt angry over Monty Python’s film The... (more)
In Libya, Egypt and Yemen too
It's love, and a bad movie, that sends on a rampage
The silent majority –
who claim to object the fanatic minority –
To ask for blood and the heads
Who do not understand
What love and tolerance mean.
A man of love, we can call him Jilel
Who adored promised virgins of hell
Not a bomb on his person
Not a saw to chop heads
Bad director must die, he would yell.
Movie go to hell
Then we'll be in peace again –... (more)
...of a millenarian cult, took his followers underground in anticipation of the end of the world. There they were sealed in and denied permission to leave, even after the predicted date came and went.
I could not help but think of this when I read reports today that seventy members of an Islamist sect were found living in an underground bunker by police near the city of Kazan in the republic of Tartarsan, the biggest Muslim majority area in Russia, some five hundred miles east of Moscow
The group known as the Fayzarahmanist sect after Fayzrahman Satarov, their 83-year-old... (more)
...a kaffar, an atheist and a disbeliever, a person of no-intelligence; I am cattle. Let me be completely fair, least I be accused of taking his words ‘out of context’. This is the context;
The kaffar, the disbelievers, the atheists who remain deaf and stubborn to the teachings of Islam, the rational message of the Quran; they are described in the Quran as, quote, “a people of no intelligence”, Allah describes them as; not of no morality, not as people of no belief – people of “no intelligence” – because they’re incapable of the intellectual effort it requires to ...

... No, no; in Hillary’s mind they are all Jeffersonian democrats with “legitimate aspirations.”
The unfortunate thing is the “legitimate aspirations” include the desire to aspire Syria’s ancient Christian community out of existence. Under a blanket of dissimulation and lies, the Islamists among the rebels are in the process of carrying out a good old fashioned pogrom.
In writing previously about the plight of Syria’s Christians (Christian Holocaust, 9 April) I made the following observation;
Most of you will be aware of Hilary Clinton’s attempt to have a UN ... (more)
Those who take the view that Islam is not wholly incompatible with modernity and democracy tend to look to Malaysia and Indonesia. The latter is held to be a particularly good example, the most populous Islamic nation on earth, a country that has embraced freedom and plurality.
Alas things are not as they were; or rather an ugly truth is beginning to come out from behind a comforting illusion. Last month, on two separate occasions, a Muslim mob attacked local Protestants at the half-finished church at Bekaski, just outside Jakarta, the capital. Shouting death threats, they threw stones...

...the banning of alcohol. In point of fact that’s rather a relief, as the Respect wave is likely to break on the dry shores of Bradford!
As always with Galloway, by his friends shall ye know him. At his main rally he was supported by Abjol Miah, a leading figure in both Respect and the Islamic Forum for Europe (IFE), an extremist organisation which wants the creation of a sharia state in Europe. Also on board was the Muslim Public Affairs Committee (MPAC), a group which previously campaigned against a Labour Member of Parliament for being “Jewish” (she wasn’t, not that it... (more)
... dress as the prophet Muhammad, zombified. Perce, a member of the “Parading Atheists of Central PA,” marched with a fellow atheist who was dressed as a zombie pope. The men were involved that night in a parade. Perce marched down the street, holding a sign that proclaimed “Muhammed [sic] of Islam.” Perce walked down the street, making zombie noises and saying, “I am the prophet Muhammad of Islam, a zombie from the dead.” He was filming this part of his walk with a very poor quality camera, presumably a cell phone. This is where the situation gets sticky.
A Muslim by the... (more)
