Sharia law goes against all values that we hold dear
Thursday, March 26, 2015
Blazing Cat Fur : NOTHING better illustrates the dangerous, destructive influence of the ideology of multiculturalism than the creeping spread of sharia law through society.
Leo McKinstry: Supporters of cultural diversity prattle about tolerance and equality, but in reality, their demands for acceptance of the Islamic legal code in Britain, they are promoting the most brutish forms of intolerance and inequality.
It is grotesque that self-styled liberals, so smug in their progressive opinions, should back a judicial system that effectively institutionalises persecution, misogyny, oppression, homophobia and barbarity.
Wherever sharia operates across the world, it means the triumph of savage superstition over humane justice, the reign of the mullahs in place of democracy and freedom.
Every theocratic country governed by sharia has an appalling human right records, complete with vicious punishments for so-called crimes like apostasy and blasphemy.
The eagerness to enforce sharia law is central to the vile, authoritarian cause of Islamism, which is filled with hatred for western values.
Christians blame political correctness for being ignored while niqab dominates conversation
Blazing Cat Fur : There’s been lots of talk about religious freedom, but it’s all about one issue: the niqab and whether Muslim women can wear one during citizenship ceremonies.
Meanwhile, the religious freedoms of Christians are being ignored with their struggles. From Trinity Western getting its law school accredited to pastures being told they can’t rent spaces to hold worship services.
One Christian leader (and a former Muslim) says if they were Muslim their issues wouldn’t be getting ignored and it’s because of political correctness.
Rebel Media : What’s with the double standard?
National Review : The recent bulldozing by the Islamic State of the ancient cities of
Nimrud, Hatra, and Korsabad, three of the world’s greatest
archaeological and cultural sites, is just this group’s latest round of
assaults across the large area under its control.
Since January 2014,
the flamboyantly barbaric Islamic State, also known as ISIS, has blown
up Shiite mosques, bulldozed churches, pulverized shrines, and plundered
In some cases, conquerors turn non-Islamic holy places into Islamic
ones, thereby asserting the supremacy of Islam.
This can be done by
converting them into Islamic sanctities, such as the Kaaba in Mecca, the
Cathedral of St. John in Damascus, and the Hagia Sophia in
Constantinople, or building on top of them, as with Al-Aqsa Mosque in
Jerusalem and Babri Masjid in Ayodhya, India.
Is there a Middle Eastern country that exults in its
multi-religious heritage, celebrates ancient artifacts on coins and
stamps, builds fabulous museums for its antiquities, treats archeology
as a national pastime, and studies manuscripts instead of burning them?
Well, yes, there is.
It’s called Israel. The rest of the region could learn a thing or two
about historical appreciation from the Jewish state.

Shaky footage. Suicide bombers attacked a pair of mosques Friday in the Yemeni capital, unleashing monstrous blasts that ripped through worshippers and killed 137 people in the deadliest assault yet, At least 13 children were among the dead.
What Netanyahu’s victory means for Israel and Obama
Blazing Cat Fur : Benjamin Netanyahu’s surprise victory stunned the world and US President Barack Obama.
What does this mean at a time where Obama gets closer with the likes of Iran and harsher on Israel? And how did Canada’s mainstream media react to Netanyahu’s win?

Feel good News of the Day - Suicide Bombing Class Gets Out Early
Wednesday, March 18, 2015
Blazing Cat Fur : In Baghdad, a terrorist who was in the middle of conducting a training for future militants, accidentally blew up an entire class, killing 21 of his students, and himself.
The group was part of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.
I don’t know how I missed this story when it came out earlier. Just
last week a suicide bomber struck a popular falafel shop near the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs here, killing several people.
evening Raad Hashim, working the counter at a liquor store near the site
of the attack, burst out laughing when he heard the news. “This is so funny,” Mr. Hashim said. “It shows how stupid they are, those dogs and sons of dogs.”
Blazing Cat Fur : The recently displaced archbishop of Mosul, Iraq was speaking with particular candor when I met him last fall in the Middle East.
He said, “People in the West say ‘they don’t know.’ How can you not know?
You either support ISIS or you must have turned off all the satellites. I am sorry to say this, but my pain is big.”
Like so many Christians in Iraq and Syria who watched ISIS kidnap their leaders, burn their churches, sell their children, and threaten all others with conversion or beheading; the archbishop wonders how it is that these maniacs so easily took his home city this summer?
It is a good question.
Pope Francis: Christians “are persecuted, and the world tries to hide it” - For Once I Agree With Him !
Jihad Watch : Meanwhile, the Pope himself has tried to hide the ideology of the persecutors, when he said:
“authentic Islam and the proper reading of the Koran are opposed to
every form of violence.”
Even here, he notes that “Christians are
persecuted.” He does not name the perpetrator. It is the great global
force that no one dares name.(If he names them more Christians will die--edit) “Pope: Christians are persecuted and the world tries to hide it,” Asia News, March 15, 2015 :
Vatican City (AsiaNews) – Christians “are persecuted, and
the world tries to hide it. I ask the Lord, implore the Lord for peace
in Pakistan,” said Pope Francis after the midday Angelus. He had
mentioned as much when he introduced the midday Angelus in which he
stressed that God “loves us, really love us, and loves us very much!
This is simplest expression that sums up the whole Gospel, faith, and
theology. God loves us freely and boundlessly.
This is how God loves
us.”… Right after the Angelus, the pope gave an unscripted address to the
crowd. “Dear brothers and sisters,” he said, “it is with sorrow, a lot
of sorrow that I learnt of today’s terrorist attacks against two
churches in the city of Lahore, in Pakistan, which have resulted in many
dead and wounded.
In The Shit House Called UK - Police told not to investigate Muslim rape gangs
Jihad Watch : 1,400 British non-Muslim children were gang-raped
and brutalized by Muslims in one city alone, and “several staff
described their nervousness about identifying the ethnic origins of
perpetrators for fear of being thought as racist; others remembered
clear direction from their managers not to do so.”
And here we see police bosses telling officers not to pursue
investigations of these rape gangs. The Muslim rape gangs went
unreported, unprosecuted, and in general unstopped because of far-Left
organizations like Hope Not Hate, Faith Matters, and Tell Mama, which
waged relentless war against anyone and everyone who spoke out about
these issue. They demonized as “Islamophobic,” “hateful” and “bigoted”
anyone who said that there were Muslim rape gangs at all, and that they
had to be stopped.
They led the campaign to ban Pamela Geller and me
from entering the country, when one of the events we had discussed going
to was a rally against the rape gangs.Search for “grooming”
(these gangs are usually called “grooming gangs” in the British media)
at Hope Not Hate’s site, and you will see that the vast majority of the
articles mentioning this practice are attacking those who are calling
attention to it and protesting against it.
Who is responsible for the religion-based mass gang-rape of British
girls? The British Left — in particular the “anti-hate” crusaders Nick
Lowles of Hope Not Hate, Fiyaz Mughal of Faith Matters and Tell Mama,
and their friends, supporters, and allies.
The lives of countless thousands of girls in Britain are ruined today
because of these men. If Britain were even close to being a sane
society today, these people would be being subjected to scorching
criticism, and there would be a thorough public reevaluation of how much
the Left’s alliance with Islamic supremacism and smear campaign against
foes of jihad terror has harmed the nation and its people.
is not a sane society today, and these sinister individuals — Lowles,
Mughal, and the rest of them — will continue to wield their considerable
power and influence in British society. “Sheffield officers investigating child grooming ‘told to wind necks in’ by bosses,” by Chris Burn, The Star, March 14, 2015 :
Pakistan: Muslims murder 15 Christians, injure 70 with blasts at churches
Sunday, March 15, 2015
Jihad Watch : These blasts led to protests by Christians in Pakistan because for
too long the Pakistani government has done nothing to protect the
Christians, and has even aided and abetted those who persecute them.
the response from Christians in the West? Yawns of indifference. “15 killed, 70 injured as blasts target Lahore churches,” The News International, March 15, 2015 :
LAHORE: Twin blasts targeted the Roman Catholic Church
and Christ Church during Sunday mass in Youhanabad area of the
provincial capital, killing 15 people including two policemen and
injuring at least 70 others.
According to initial reports, two suicide bombers attacked the churches located in the Christian locality. Eye witnesses told Geo News that a man blew himself up outside one of
the churches as a police guard stopped him from entering, while the
other blast took place inside the church during Sunday mass.
However, police have yet to confirm the nature of the blast. Two
suspected men were caught from the venue but the enraged mob burnt them
alive after subjecting them to severe torture in the presence of police. The explosions caused a stampede at the Church as panicked worshipers
ran to save their lives. Windowpanes of the nearby buildings were
shattered due to the explosions.
PM Harper of Canada says guns provide security for rural homes away from immediate police assistance
Saturday, March 14, 2015
Prime Minister Stephen Harper came out guns a-blazing against restrictions on gun ownership.
wife’s from a rural area and obviously gun ownership wasn’t just for
the farm, but was for a certain level of security when you’re a ways
away from immediate police assistance,” he said when asked about new
firearms legislation during a question-and-answer session at the
Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities annual convention.
He also defended law-abiding gun owners, “guns are something people use for recreation and the vast majority do so safely.”“What we are trying to do with [Bill C-42] are some things that will
both increase safety around the acquisition and use of firearms but also
to deal with some of the bureaucracy and excessive red tape.”
Bill C-42 would limit the discretionary authority of chief firearms officers. “In some provinces, those firearms officers have exercised their authority in extremely arbitrary ways,” Harper said.
Canadian Muslims Preach Patriarchy, Wife Beating: In Their Own Words
Blazing Cat Fur : Jonathan Halevi, an expert on Islam and terrorism, shares examples of Canadian Muslim leaders who are preaching messages that conflict with Canadian values.
For example, video clips show two Calgary, Alberta Muslim leaders — Imam Abdi Hersi and Mizz Haibibi — instructing women to reject equality. Hersi adds that wives must provide sex on demand to their husbands.
Halevi also presents a book called “Women In Islam,” that was available at Islam Awareness Week at York University and is distributed by street preachers at Toronto’s Dundas Square.
Halevi says this book reflects conventional Muslim teachings as they are regularly conveyed in Canada. It condones wife beating (as long as it doesn’t involve “breaking a bone.”)

Islamic State blows up 10th century Assyrian Catholic monastery near Mosul
Jihad Watch : Besides removing supposed temptations to idolatry, Islamic jihadists
want to ruin the artifacts of non-Muslim civilizations because doing so
testifies to the truth of Islam, as the Qur’an suggests that ruins are a
sign of Allah’s punishment of those who rejected his truth:
Many were the Ways of Life that have passed away before
you: travel through the earth, and see what was the end of those who
rejected Truth. (Qur’an 3:137)
This is one of the foundations of the Islamic idea that pre-Islamic civilizations, and non-Islamic civilizations, are all jahiliyya
— the society of unbelievers, which is worthless.
Obviously this cuts
against the idea of tourism of ancient sites and non-Muslim religious
installations such as St. Catherine’s monastery.
V. S. Naipaul
encountered this attitude in his travels through Muslim countries. For
many Muslims, he observed in Among the Believers, “The time
before Islam is a time of blackness: that is part of Muslim theology.
History has to serve theology.”
Naipaul recounted that some Pakistani
Muslims, far from valuing the nation’s renowned archaeological site at
Mohenjo Daro, saw its ruins as a teaching opportunity for Islam,
recommending that Qur’an 3:137 be posted there as a teaching tool. “Iraq: Isis blows up 10th century Assyrian Catholic monastery near Mosul,” by Gianluca Mezzofiore, International Business Times, March 10, 2015:
Will some moderate Muslim leader please explain how Ismail Al-Wahwah is misunderstanding and misinterpreting the Qur’an? Meanwhile, “Al-Wahwah” would be the perfect name for a Muslim leader

France: Muslims assault, rob Jewish teens outside synagogue, screaming “dirty Jews, we will exterminate all of you”
Jihad Watch : Behold the future of France, and of all of Europe. “Jewish Teens Assaulted, Robbed Outside French Synagogue,” by Ari Yashar, Arutz Sheva, March 12, 2015:
The French National Bureau of Vigilance Against
Anti-Semitism (BNVCA) reported that two Jewish teens were assaulted and
robbed while leaving a synagogue in Marseille, and as a result of the
attack required medical treatment.
The attack by two assailants “of African origin” according to the
victims occurred on Tuesday. There are many Muslim African immigrants in
France, increasing the likelihood of religious hatred being a prime
motivator in the crime. Making that likelihood undeniable is the fact that before attacking,
the assailants said “dirty Jews, we will exterminate all of you,”
according to the teens.
In UK another useful idiot : UK: Anglican vicar holds Muslim prayer service in his church, asks congregation to praise “the god that we love, Allah”
Jihad Watch : When Giles Goddard painted that cross on his church building, and had
one placed on his forehead, was he aware of this hadith?
Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, ‘By Him in Whose Hands my soul is, son of
Mary (Jesus) will shortly descend amongst you people (Muslims) as a
just ruler and will break the Cross and kill the pig and abolish the
Jizya (a tax taken from the non-Muslims, who are in the protection, of
the Muslim government). Then there will be abundance of money and
no-body will accept charitable gifts.'” (Bukhari 3.34.425)
Did the Muslim prayer service include any of these Qur’an readings? Christians have forgotten part of the divine revelations they
received: “From those, too, who call themselves Christians, We did take a
covenant, but they forgot a good part of the message that was sent
them: so we estranged them, with enmity and hatred between the one and
the other, to the day of judgment. And soon will Allah show them what it
is they have done.” — Qur’an 5:14 Jesus is not the Son of God: “O People of the Scripture!
exaggerate in your religion nor utter aught concerning Allah save the
truth. The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was only a messenger of Allah,
and His word which He conveyed unto Mary, and a spirit from Him. So
believe in Allah and His messengers, and say not “Three” – Cease! (it
is) better for you! – Allah is only One Allah. Far is it removed from
His Transcendent Majesty that He should have a son. His is all that is
in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And Allah is sufficient as
Defender.” — Qur’an 4:171.
“Under fire, vicar who said ‘we love Allah': Liberal clergyman attacked
by traditional Anglicans for allowing full Muslim prayer service in his
Church,” by Chris Pleasance, MailOnline, March 12, 2015:
Because the advertising for it is out. Amongst plenty of other evidence, one Chinese front organisation conducted a poll on Australian attitudes to the ANZUS treaty and a Chinese attack on Japan.
Why would they conduct such a poll unless they are going to attack Japan?
Not that they were interested in the results as such. They just wanted to be able to publicize the poll in order to try to keep Australia on the sidelines of their war.
The war will have two functions for China. Firstly, it will provide legitimacy for the regime as economic growth stalls. Secondly, the Chinese will have pride in humiliating their neighbouring countries, and the United States, by defeating them in battle and creating no-go zones in the oceans which other countries won’t be able to enter without Chinese permission.
The war will have nothing to do with oil and gas resources under the seabed and securing sea-lanes. The Chinese have never offered those excuses for their behavior themselves. The excuses are the creation of Western pundits for something that otherwise is stupid, destructive, and primitive.
UK: Jihad murderer & family on dole 20 years, cost taxpayers $600,000
Wednesday, March 04, 2015
Jihad Watch : “MPs said they were horrified that the child of a family given
refugee status, citizenship and benefits had returned the favour by
orchestrating the murder of two of its citizens.”
Get used to it, MPs,
because you’re going to be seeing a great deal more of it. Not only is
Britain galloping toward its own ruin, but its taxpayers are paying for
the privilege. “Jihadi John family’s 20 years on benefits:
How it’s cost taxpayers
up to £400k to house fanatic and his relatives in upmarket areas,” by
James Slack and Paul Bentley and Sam Marsden for the Daily Mail, March 3, 2015 :
Jihadi John and his asylum-seeking family have milked the British benefits system for 20 years, the Mail can reveal today. Housing the Islamic State executioner and his relatives in affluent parts of London has cost taxpayers up to £400,000.
One landlord said Mohammed Emwazi’s family were ‘parasites’ and
‘tenants from hell’. Incredibly, they are still believed to be pocketing
£40,000 a year in handouts despite there being no sign of them in
Britain. Emwazi’s father Jasem, who has six children, is back in his native Kuwait – the country he claimed he fled fearing for his life.

“This is a bad deal — we’re better off without it.”
Gates of Vienna : Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the U.S. Congress
this morning, at the invitation of Speaker of the House John Boehner.
His primary topic was the current nuclear weapons deal with Iran being
negotiated by the “P5+1”, which is reportedly close to being finalized.
Below is a CSPAN video of the entire speech:
Shamefully, the decapitator of hostages is being made out to be a victim
National Review : Mohammed Emwazi, aka Jihadi John, the masked, British-accented butcher of hostages on ISIS videos, makes an unlikely victim, to say the least.
The entire point of the videos is to advertise his savagery and that of the hellish cause he serves. Yet, shamefully, even he can claim the expiating status of victimhood and get a sympathetic hearing.
According to his own self-pitying e-mails prior to his star turn as a knife-wielding executioner, Emwazi was harried by British intelligence beyond human endurance.
Some so-called civil libertarians have picked up on his plaint to argue that a good, promising young Muslim man was pushed into the arms of a medieval terror group by the Brits. “Jihadi John: ‘Radicalized’ by Britain” was the title of a press release from the terrorist-defending, British “human rights” group Cage. It maintains that young Muslims like Mohammed Emwazi have “turned to violence because of British counter-terrorism policies coupled with long standing grievances over Western foreign policy.”
The Washington Post, which broke the news last week that Emwazi was Jihadi John, ran a piece about his run-in with British authorities when trying to travel to Kuwait in 2010 headlined “The moment Jihadi John may have become a terrorist.”
Netanyahu Lavishes Praise on Obama in Speech: 'I Called the President, and He Was There'
National Review : Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu turned the other cheek during his joint speech before Congress on March 3, praising President Obama even while the White House snubs him and seeks to discredit his stance on Iranian nuclear negotiations.
“We appreciate all that President Obama has done for Israel,” he said. “Some of it is widely known . . . Some of what the president has done for Israel is less well-known.” The prime minister listed all the times he called Obama and received immediate aid, including the 2010 Carmel forest fire and the siege of the Israeli embassy in Cairo during the 2011 unrest. “In each of those moments,
I called the president, and he was there,” Netanyahu said. “And some of what the president has done for Israel might never be known, because it touches on some of the most sensitive and strategic issues that arise between an American president and an Israeli prime minister.” “But I know it!” he continued. “And I will always be grateful to President Obama for that support.”
There is no question about whether President Obama — along with Secretary of State John Kerry and the editorial pages of many newspapers — has a particular dislike of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. But there is another question: Why? And the answer is due to an important rule of life that too few people are aware of:
Those who do not confront evil resent those who do. Take the case at hand. The prime minister of Israel is at the forefront of the greatest battle against evil in our time — the battle against violent Muslims. No country other than Israel is threatened with extinction, and it is Iran and the many Islamic terror organizations that pose that threat. It only makes sense, then, that no other country feels the need to warn the world about Iran and Islamic terror as much as does Israel.
That’s why when Benjamin Netanyahu speaks to the United Nations about the threat Iran poses to his country’s survival and about the metastasizing cancer of Islamist violence, he, unfortunately, stands alone. Virtually everyone listening knows he is telling the truth. And most dislike him for it. Appeasers hate those who confront evil.
Given that this president is the least likely of any president in American history to confront evil — or even identify it — while Benjamin Netanyahu is particularly vocal and eloquent about both identifying and confronting evil, it is inevitable that the former will resent the latter. The negotiations with Iran over its nuclear weapons program are today’s quintessential example. Those who will not confront a tyranny engaged in terror from Argentina to the Middle East, and which is committed to annihilating another country, will deeply resent Israel and its leader.
While under fierce attack from President Obama, the Israeli prime minister defends Western values and speaks the truth about Iran
National Review : The leader of the free world will be addressing Congress on Tuesday.
The American president is doing everything possible to undermine him.
Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu leads a nation surrounded by
enemies, a nation so small that it narrows at one point to just 9.3
Yet, in a world where the Oval Office is manned by someone openly
apologetic for most American exercises of power; and where Western
Europe’s economy is enervated, its people largely faithless, and its
leadership feckless; and where Freedom House has found “an overall drop
in [global] freedom for the ninth consecutive year,” the safeguarding of
our civilization might rely more on leaders who possess uncommon moral
courage than on those who possess the most nukes or biggest armies.
The clash between modernity and medievalism need not be a clash
between progress and tradition. The traditions of the Jewish people go
back thousands of years. They are the source of our collective values
and the foundation of our national strength.
At the same time, the Jewish people have always looked towards the
future. Throughout history, we have been at the forefront of efforts to
expand liberty, promote equality, and advance human rights. We champion
these principles not despite of our traditions but because of them.
