The title of my presentation was “Muslim Persecution of Christian
Martyrs: Past and Present.” Topics discussed include Islamic doctrine
concerning Christianity; Islamic history as a manifestation of said
Islamic doctrine; and, continuity — showing how the same things written
in Islam’s core texts, and that have manifested throughout history, are
still happening today all throughout the Islamic world.
LOOKING at the recent events taking place in our country, it’s not difficult to conclude that race relations must be at the lowest ebb now.
And it’s happening as we mourn the loss of one of Malaysia’s favourite sons who spent his entire life fighting for the country he loved and called home. Distinguished ex-police officer Tan Sri Yuen Yuet Leng must have found it extremely painful seeing what he and his colleagues had built disintegrating before his very eyes, and that those who shed their blood and helped make Malaysia a great country are now referred to quite freely as pendatang and even told that they should go back to their countries of origin if they are not happy here.
One deputy minister was so caught up with the Petaling Street incident, where the Chinese ambassador visited Petaling Street, he even threatened to “slap” Chinese Malaysians if they took their grouses outside the country to what he called their godfather from China. The threat was such that even without the actual act taking place, the crack and echo of the word lempang (slap) has reached the far corners of this country, causing much ire among the Chinese population.
Our politicians need to be reminded that to be good leaders, they must be well disciplined, do not get easily ruffled and not make racially charged and hurtful statements that can break race relations. I still remember Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak a few year ago during his visit to Chennai, India saying it was important to recognise all those who contributed to nation-building irrespective of their ethnic background.
For the majority of non-Malays who have long been citizens, especially those born after Merdeka, Malaysia is the only country they know. They are not citizens of China or India and cannot pergi balik India or pergi balik China.
The Chinese have proven that they are loyal and responsible citizens. During the Emergency, our police force had one of the best Special Branch units in the world manned by officers 90% of whom were Chinese. It was the SB that helped break the back of the communist terrorists and contributed in no small way to make this country a safe and secure place where all, irrespective of race and religion, can work, raise their families and share the bounties fairly and proportionally. More can be done in the equal distribution of wealth, though.
I would like to commend the Malay Rulers who have intervened to remind politicians and NGOs not to stoke racial and religious tension to garner support. The Bersih 4 rally and the counter rally by the red shirts added fuel to the fire, as racial slurs were hurled openly. Perhaps we need to rethink if these rallies serve any useful purpose.
Meanwhile, will all the “warring” parties take a step back from the brink to mull over the advice of the rulers? Please remember that this country does not belong to politicians; it belongs to the rakyat.
Raymond Ibrahim: Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ on Islamic State
Jihad Watch : The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role
in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against
the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.” ccording to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,
The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our
country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it.
Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed
forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the
arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with
the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are
suffering no less.
This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria. For years,
Russia’s Orthodox leaders have been voicing their concern for persecuted
Back in February 2012,
the Russian church described to Vladimir Putin the horrific treatment
Christians are experiencing around the world, especially under Islam:
This came in response to ongoing clashes between Turkish authorities
and the Kurdish Worker’s Party in the east and southeast of the
nation—though it is unclear how Armenians are to blame, except in the
spirit of the “collective punishment” of inferiors.
The Armenian Patriarchate of Constantinople released a statement
saying that it prays for an end to the chaos threatening the unity of
Turkey. It also expressed disquiet over the intentional targeting of and incitement against the Armenian community in Turkish media:
From time to time expressions of some writers targeting
our community and identifying it with that terrorist group deeply insult
the Armenian citizens who have always been committed to this country
and possess civic consciousness. Using unjust expressions referring to
the Armenian citizens considering themselves a part of Turkey is an
attitude not fitting in the frames of goodness.
We are convinced that
the majority of our nation does not agree to these alienating
It offers an up close and
personal account of what Christian minorities are experiencing at the
hands of jihadis and other Muslim “rebels” being supported in the
Mideast by the Obama administration. A Christian family from Iraq narrates how their young children were
killed and burned alive, “simply for wearing the cross.” One of the
remaining and traumatized children uses toy figures to show people how
his siblings were slaughtered.
This family is identical to the other Christian refugees who fled the
Islamic State in Iraq and came to America—only to be imprisoned and
then thrown back to the lions by the Obama government. Listen especially to the mother’s words starting around the 2:50
She talks about how the “ISIS” that attacked and killed
her children were their own Muslim neighbors, whom they ate with,
laughed with, and even provided educational and medical service to.
Jihad Watch : “A woman whose son is in federal prison in Fort Worth says he has
complained about the lack of pork, saying he had heard it was because of
complaints from Muslim inmates.”
Delicious Pork removed from US prisons
However, “while there have been
grumblings from some inmates’ family members that the prohibition had to
do with Muslim or Jewish dietary restrictions, Bureau of Prisons
spokesman Ed Ross said that isn’t the case.”
We know it wasn’t because of Jewish dietary restrictions, because
Jews don’t demand that everyone else abide by their dietary laws, and
there aren’t that many Jews in prisons. What it was really about, says
Bureau of Prisons spokesman Ed Ross, was that inmates voted pork down:
“It was really based on the survey of inmate population as well as
Another BOP spokesperson, Dana Williams, explained
that on this survey of prisoners, “Year after year the most disliked
item menu was pork,” BOP spokesperson Dana Williams told Quartz. Does
the increasing number of Islamic jihadist and other Muslim inmates
account for this? Williams didn’t say, and apparently wasn’t asked. And while Bureau of Prisons officials are blaming the cost of pork as
well as this survey,
Dave Warner of the National Pork Producers Council
says the cost really isn’t very high at all. So this is the situation: a
popular food item that is banned under Islamic law is reportedly voted
down, year after year, by prisoners, and BOP officials say they’re
dropping it because it also costs too much, even though it doesn’t.
their decision just happens to coincide with Sharia at a time when the
Obama Administration and Islamic advocacy groups are actively working in
numerous fields to make special accommodation for Islamic laws and
mores, and when some Muslims around the world are becoming increasingly
aggressive in demanding that non-Muslims conform to their ways of
living. But that has nothing to do with it, you see.
Muslim stabs Israeli in the neck in Jerusalem; six major jihad terror attacks in Israel in the last day
Jihad Watch : Here is the Jewish blood Reza Aslan and others of his ilk have been
baying for: “Israeli man, 25, seriously hurt in Jerusalem stabbing
attack,” Times of Israel, October 8, 2015:
A Jerusalem yeshiva student, 25, was seriously wounded in a stabbing attack in northern Jerusalem.
A second Israeli, apparently a light rail security guard, was very
lightly hurt after wrestling with the attacker in an attempt to prevent
him from fleeing the scene.
Police say the attacker, a 19-year-old Palestinian from East
Jerusalem, was “neutralized” within minutes. He is unharmed and was
being questioned by police. Initial reports, corrected by police, said
he was 15.
The terror attack took place just after noon at the light rail stop
near the Israel Police’s national headquarters close to Ammunition Hill.The victim, an Israeli citizen, was evacuated to Shaare Zedek
Hospital in Jerusalem with the knife still lodged in his neck. Doctors
rushed him into emergency surgery.
The road, Haim Bar Lev Boulevard, is closed to traffic in both
directions. Light rail service was suspended in the area, but service
resumed after 1 p.m. Nachman Ravivo, a Magen David Adom volunteer, was the first medic to
reach the victim. “He was stabbed in the neck. He was evacuated in
serious condition to the trauma unit at Shaare Zedek.
He was fully
conscious and communicated” with the rescue team, Ravivo told Channel 2
in the minutes after the attack.
MDA CEO Eli Bin said the victim’s condition was “serious but stable.”…
After the stabbing, the attacker reportedly attempted but failed to
steal the gun from a light rail security guard. After an altercation
with the guard, the attacker fled the scene, but was pursued and caught
by police motorcyclists.
The previous day saw at least six major terror attacks nationwide
with wounded or dead victims amid an escalating wave of violence.
“Palestinians” share pictures of murdered Israelis with “expressions of joy” over “heroic” murders
Jihad Watch : Yet the self-righteous Leftist supporters of the “Palestinian” jihad
will continue to claim the moral high ground, basing their claim on
spurious, manufactured Israeli atrocities cooked up by the“Palestinian”
jihad propaganda machine.
“Palestinians joyous by sharing pictures of dead Israelis,” by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik, Palestinian Media Watch, October 8, 2015:
Palestinians have been celebrating the murder of Israelis
by distributing the pictures of dead bodies of Israelis and the terror
scenes on Twitter and Facebook, according to the official PA daily.
“most significant” picture is that of the dead bodies of the young
Israeli couple Naama and Eitam Henkin who were murdered in front of
their four children last week. According to the PA daily, the killing of
the couple brings “joy” to Palestinians who see the killing as
We can’t combat Islamist terrorism until we admit that’s what it is
Daily Telegraph : THE 15-year-old male of Middle Eastern background who dropped into Parramatta Mosque on Friday, before descending on NSW Police HQ brandishing a loaded gun, was wearing a long black cloak, and calling out “Allah Akbar”, before he put a bullet in the head of Curtis Cheng.
Even before official confirmation, it didn’t take a genius to work out that the cold blooded execution of Cheng, 58, a police accountant and father of two, was a terrorist attack perpetrated by a radical Muslim, no matter what his age.
We’ve known since September 11, 2001, exactly what Islamist terrorism is, and who are its targets. With the rise of Islamic State we have seen lone wolf and tag team terrorist attacks occur around the Western world with sickening regularity.
They began in earnest after an IS edict was issued last September calling on followers around the world to “kill a disbelieving American or European — especially the spiteful and filthy French — or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever …
‘If you are not able to find a [bomb] or a bullet … Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him, or poison him.”
With each passing day, it becomes a clear that Israel is experiencing a wave of terror unseen since the dark days of the second intifada over a decade ago.
There have been stabbing incidents on the streets of Jerusalem and even now in other parts of the country. Snipers, gasoline bombs, and gangs armed with lethal rocks are assaulting Jews driving on the roads in the West Bank.
But as the toll of casualties rises, the reaction from the U.S. government and the international media is cool, detached indifference.
But as the Palestinians seem to be succumbing to a
form of mass madness in which much of the population seems to be joining
in a mass game of “kill the Jew,” onlookers would do well to ponder to
what extent their lack of a response is responsible for the escalation
of the violence.
Let’s concede that the prime responsibility for bloodshed by both Jews and Arabs in the past weeks belongs to the Palestinian leadership. Over the past year, Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas has been guilty of cynically attempting to feed Muslim paranoia about the fate of the mosques on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount.

ISIS keeps torturing and killing Christians: Why is this merely ‘conservative news’?
If you follow religion news at the global level, then you know that the Internet era has led to the rise of many alternative wire services, most of which produce news stories that are mixed with material advocating the views of the sponsors.
You can take the advocacy stuff or leave it. What matters to journalists is whether the editors of this material have a reputation for getting their facts right when to comes to dates, names, institutions and sources. You see, the issue isn't whether these "news reports" can be printed
in the mainstream press.
The issue is whether there is material in them
that mainstream journalists can verify and use as the starting point for
their own independent reporting. The Assyrian International News Agency
is one such wire service and it is especially crucial to us (I am an
Eastern Orthodox layman) with a special interest in the horrors that
continue to unfold for Christians in the ancient churches of the Middle
East. Here is a chunk of a recent AINA report:
Christians have been brutally executed by the Islamic State, including
the 12-year-old son of a Syrian ministry team leader who had planted
nine churches, because they refused to renounce the name of Jesus Christ
and embrace Islam. The martyrs were faithful to the very end; right
before one woman was beheaded by the terror group, she appeared to be
smiling slightly as she said, "Jesus!" Continue reading it all here................
Police and politicians lying about what inspired Farhad Jabar’s Parramatta police shooting
THEY treat us like fools. Police and politicians are telling untruths about what inspired Farhad Jabar to kill.
Those untruths are meant to build trust with Muslim Australians, which we need. But everyone else will wonder: “What other lies are we being told?”
Iranian-born Jabar went from his mosque to the Parramatta police station where he shot a Buddhist accountant and shouted “Allahu akbar” — Allah is the greatest. In his backpack was a letter reportedly containing Islamist extremist literature.
Police have raided Farhad’s mosque and are checking sermons given there. They are also investigating an alleged ring of sympathisers of the Islamic State, which quotes the Koran to legitimise the murder of nonbelievers.
“Kill the polytheists wherever you find them,” goes one such passage in Islam’s holiest text.
Yet police and ministers of the Turnbull Government still pretend this murder was not religiously inspired, but politically.
Why-oh-why do I still read the New York Times? Am I that much of a masochist?
Here’s why. Because those who rely upon it run media/entertainment/publishing empires, corporations, and governments. These Masters of the Universe do not understand that the articles about Israel and the Muslim world in the Paper of Record are all, essentially, toxic propaganda; to them, it is mother’s milk, God’s own word.
Verily, it is The Atheist’s Bible.
That’s why I steel myself every single day. Take yesterday, October 6th.
One would think that the IDF’s October 4th arrest of five members of the Hamas cell responsible for the heinous murders of Eitam and Naama Henkin on October 1st would be front page news.
One would be wrong. This dramatic information is contained on page A9 and takes up only a little more than half the page. The hard copy article is 1,083 words long and is divided into 22 paragraphs.
Journalists Jodi Rudoren and Diaa Hadid (with additional reporters from Jerusalem, the West Bank, Ramallah, and Bethlehem), seem to be practicing “proportional” or “equivalency” journalism as opposed to “objective” journalism. Read it all here................apparently, New York Times: No Israeli Victims of Palestinian Terrorism
These have occurred against a backdrop of violent demonstrations and protests in Jerusalem, the West Bank, and increasingly among Israel’s Arab citizens.
For five years, Israel has lived a strange and contradictory reality. The Arab world is in an advanced state of meltdown. A number of formerly strong states have effectively ceased to exist. Syria, Iraq, Yemen are today merely names for areas in which sectarian militias battle one another.
These states have collapsed along their ethnic and sectarian fault lines. The results have been bloody and are not yet over.
Yet on the edge of all this, the area between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea has remained quiet. An anomaly.
This is the only place of non-Muslim sovereignty between Europe and India. The existence of a sovereign area successfully defended by the Jews — a group traditionally despised and ridiculed by Muslims — has long been a source of rage and humiliation for both Sunni and Shia.

Australian Rules OK? ‘No more mosques, Sharia law or Muslim refugees’
In the wake of last Friday’s fatal terror attack in Sydney’s west and subsequent raids controversial politician Pauline Hanson has declared she will seek to stop mosques, Sharila law and Muslim refugees, if elected at the next Federal poll.
The One Nation party leader has already won significant support within a day of posting her hard-hitting manifesto to followers:
‘No More: Mosques, Sharia law, Halal certification, Muslim refugees’.
The Queensland Senate candidate placed the message on Facebook and it has been ‘liked’ by more than 16,000 people in just over 24 hours.
A vote for me at the next Federal Election will be your insurance, the major parties will have absolute opposition to any more Mosques, Sharia Law, Halal Certification & Muslim Refugees. NO MORE!'
She told Daily Mail Australia on Wednesday that it's a similar message to what she is hearing people on the streets.
'Over a million people have seen it (the manifesto) and it's the way Australians are feeling, it's commonplace, it's the way Australians feel,' she told Daily Mail Australia.
Ms Hanson said it was not just the killing of Curtis Cheng in Parramatta which sparked her slogan.
'There's been quite a few, including the stabbing (last year) of the police officers (by Melbourne teenager Numan Haider) and I cannot see the government doing anything to eradicate it,' she added. Read it all at the Daily Mail................

ARD television was inundated with complaints after it broadcast a
mocked-up picture of Mrs Merkel wearing the garment, known as a chador,
against a backdrop of the Reichstag surrounded by minarets.
The image was shown during a debate on the
refugee crisis on Report from Berlin, a Newsnight-style programme, and
was intended to be satirical, the broadcaster claimed. “This is not constructive journalism.
Ugh!” read one comment on the programme’s Facebook page. “The mood turns because of such defamation and propaganda. So yes it’s true: integration cannot succeed. The broadcaster defended the use of the image.
“Of course it was also
the of this artwork to provoke and polarise opinion,” it said in a
statement. “We consider this satirical form of representation to
be in keeping with our journalistic values. We reject any insinuation
that we would operate Islamophobic propaganda.”
Jihad Watch : When was the last time you recall a Christian murderer killing a
non-Christian and then screaming “Jesus is Lord!”?
And then it coming to
light that the murderer was given his gun at a local church that had
other ties to violent Christians? Happens all the time, right? Parramatta shooting: Farhad Jabar’s gun allegedly came from Middle Eastern crime gang,” by Mark Morri, The Daily Telegraph, October 7, 2015 :
THE weapon used by teen terrorist Farhad Jabar was
believed to be sourced from a Middle Eastern crime gang and police
suspect it was handed to the schoolboy at the Parramatta mosque…. The terror teen had been a regular member of an Islamic schoolyard prayer meeting being audited by the state government.
A spokeswoman for NSW Education Minister Adrian Piccoli last night
confirmed the Muslim prayer group, held at lunchtime each Friday under
teacher supervision at Arthur Phillip High School where Farhad Jabar was
a student, had been reviewed following allegations pupils were
preaching extremism at similar sessions at another school.
It can also be revealed a fellow student at Jabar’s school,
who cannot be named, was a supporter of Islamic State and had been
ordered to participate in a youth offenders conference after yelling
abuse outside a Christian school and flying the terror group’s flag from
a car window.
Here is a nice moment of busting some of the Obama administration’s brutal and consistent hypocrisy, watch State Department spokesman squirm
The State Dept. accused the Israeli army of ignoring coordinates of the school sent “repeatedly” to its forces, and called on Israel to “meet its own standards and avoid civilian casualties.”
But it appears now that even the US is unable to meet those “standards”; on Sunday, a US airstrike in Afghanistan struck a hospital, killing at least 22 civilians.
Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) branded the airstrike a “war crime.”
Associated Press journalist Matt Lee challenged US State Dept. spokesman Mark Toner over the strike, asking whether the US government viewed that incident – in which significantly more civilians were killed – as just as “disgraceful.” (More here)
Islamic State blows up ancient Arch of Triumph in Palmyra
Tuesday, October 06, 2015
Jihad Watch : Besides removing supposed temptations to idolatry, Islamic jihadists
want to destroy the artifacts of non-Muslim civilizations because doing
so testifies to the truth of Islam, as the Qur’an suggests that the
destroyed remnants of ancient non-Muslim civilizations 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
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. 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
Muslims laud Australian murderer as “hero of the Islamic people” Muslims laud Australian murderer as “hero of the Islamic people”

Death to the
evil police state of Australia who killed this young child all he is
guilty of was being muslim!!” Well, yes, he killed the police official, but he was just an Infidel. “Sydney Shooter Labelled ‘Hero Of The Islamic People’
On Social Media,” by Simon Kent, Breitbart News, October 5, 2015 (From The Religion of Peace): The teenage terrorist who executed a NSW Police Force
employee in Sydney was lauded as a “hero of the Islamic people” on a
social media page, which was quickly removed at the request of police.
Fifteen-year-old Farhad Khalil Mohammad Jabar, who was born in Iran
and had an Iraqi-Kurdish background, was killed during a shoot-out with
special constables outside police headquarters in the western Sydney
suburb of Parramatta last Friday. Moments earlier he had shot finance
worker Curtis Cheng in the back as he left the building.
According to The Sydney Morning Herald, on one of the Facebook pages
that have emerged since the shooting the teen has been labelled the
“hero of Parramatta” although it remained unclear who set up the
Facebook page or why. “Hero of the Islamic peoples he will be gratly (sic),” one post reads
on the Facebook page. “Death to the evil police state of Australia who
killed this young child all he is guilty of was being muslim!!”
Nigerian army vows to end Boko Haram terrorism by December
Jihad Watch : “In August 2014, the administration of former President Goodluck
Jonathan made a similar vow, promising to end terrorist attacks in
Nigeria by December of that year.”
This vow will likely turn out the
same way. Boko Haram, or as it has renamed itself, the Islamic State in
West Africa, enjoys significant support among Muslims in Nigeria,
because many of them agree with its view of Islam.
“Nigerian army vows to end Boko Haram terrorism by December,” by Fred Lambert, UPI, October 4, 2015: MAIDUGURI, Nigeria, Oct. 4 (UPI)
Nigeria’s armed forces
on Sunday reiterated previous vows to end terrorism in the country by
December. Xinhua news agency reported Maj. Gen. Yushau Abubakar, commander of
forces in the northeastern city of Maiduguri, made the pledge and said
recent bombings were designed to take attention away from military
defeats over terrorist group Boko Haram.
The statement comes two days after multiple bomb attacks killed at
least 18 people and injured 40 others in the townships of Kuje and
Nyanya, on the outskirts of Abuja, the Nigerian capital. Lt. Gen. Tukur Yusuf Buratai, Nigeria’s chief of army staff, made a
similar assurance, Tuesday saying, “We will not rest on our oars until
we defeat the terrorists by December.”
Saudi Arabia: Muslim clerics call for jihad to defend the Islamic State, whatever the denial ............
Jihad Watch : Against a Russian-led Shi’ite/Orthodox Christian crusade, you see.
shows one reason why the Saudis have not moved energetically against the
Islamic State themselves: if they did, they could be facing an internal
uprising from Saudis who believe the Islamic State to be manifesting
e Religion of Peace): RIYADH: Dozens of Islamist Saudi clerics have called on
Arab and Muslim countries to “give all moral, material, political and
military” support to what they term a jihad, or holy war, against
Syria’s government and its Iranian and Russian backers.
Although the clerics who signed the online statement are not
affiliated with the government, their strong sectarian and
anti-Christian language reflects mounting anger among many Saudis over
Russian and Iranian involvement in Syria’s war.
Russia last week started airstrikes against Syrian opposition targets
that it describes as aimed at weakening ISIS, a move Riyadh has
denounced. The clerics’ statement compared it to the Soviet Union’s 1980
invasion of Afghanistan, which prompted an international jihad.
Germans and German media demand real numbers of the horde invading Europe now.
Quoting what they call an anonymous source within the German government one media outlet said on Monday Chancellor Angela Merkel had got her sums wrong.
If anyone knew exactly how many people had entered Germany this year, and the paper claims no-one's sure, it was more likely to be 1.5 million, not the 800,000 figure being quoted. As anti-immigrant marches grow in size and number, not all of Merkel's ministers are toeing the line.
