What the Arab world produces - Hatred and Violence - Tragically, the Arab world doesn’t produce much else.
Wednesday, October 01, 2014
National Review : At least since the early part of the 20th century, aside from oil, the Arab world has produced and exported two products.
It has produced essentially no technology, medicine, or anything else in the world of science. It has almost no contributions to world literature, to art, or to intellectual development.
According to the most recent United Nations Arab Human Development Reports (2003–2005), written by Arab intellectuals, Greece, with a population of 11 million, annually translates five times more books from English than does the entire Arab world, population 370 million.
Nor is this a new development. The total number of books translated into Arabic during the past 1,000 years is fewer than Spain translates into Spanish in one year. ArabianBusiness.com reports that about 100 million people in the Arab world are illiterate, and three-quarters of them are between the ages of 15 and 45.
As for Arab women, the situation is even worse.
Nearly half of the Arab world’s women are illiterate, and sexual attacks on women have actually increased since the “Arab Spring,” as have forced marriages and trafficking. And the exact number of women murdered by family members in “honor killings” is not knowable. It is only known to be large.
In Egypt, the largest Arab country, 91 percent of women and girls are subjected to female genital mutilation, according to UNICEF. Not to mention the number of women in the Arab world who must wear veils or even full-face and full-body coverings known as burqas. And, of course, Saudi Arabia is infamous for not allowing women to drive a car.

Doha – Qatar
Dear Ms. Bilal and Ms. Femi Oke:
This letter is being sent to you on behalf of the Qatar Awareness Campaign Coalition.
The purpose is to inform you and the public of the activities of Qatar,
the country which owns Al Jazeera, the network on which you are
co-hosts of the program, The Stream.
We urge to you read the information below, which includes evidence that
Qatar is arguably the preeminent sponsor of terror in the world today.
It is a benefactor of the genocidal armies of ISIS, al Qaeda, and Boko
Haram; it is involved in Taliban narcotics trafficking through a
relationship with the Pakistani National Logistics Cell; and profits
from operating a virtual slave state. Qatar is involved in terror operations from Nigeria to Gaza to Syria to Iraq.
So the public understands why this letter is addressed to you both,
who are American (Ms. Bilal) and British (Ms. Oke) citizens and co-hosts
of an Al Jazeera daily program, here is pertinent background on the
In 1996, then Emir of Qatar, Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, provided a $137 million loan to start Al Jazeera. Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani was the ruling monarch of Qatar from 1995-2013.
Al Jazeera is based out of Doha, the capital of Qatar.
In July 2013, 22 employees of Al Jazeera resigned
after the station “air[ed] lies and misle[d] viewers” (according to Al
Jazeera correspondent) regarding the Egyptian revolution on July 4,
which ousted Muslim Brotherhood president Mohamed Morsi.
Al Jazeera is home to the Muslim Brotherhood’s spiritual leader (and Morsi-backer) Yusuf al-Qaradawi, who reaches an estimated 80 million viewers each week.
In light of Al Jazeera’s consistent and vocal support for the Muslim
Brotherhood and their associated terror campaigns, we ask that you
consider the attached sourced report
on Qatar’s activities. The links cited are vetted and credible sources.
We hope you take the time to verify the truth of the statements for
After doing so, the Coalition of the Qatar Awareness Campaign calls on you to exert
due influence on the Qatari government to cease any type of involvement

Hamas-linked CAIR claims situation of Muslims in America similar to that of blacks in segregated South
Jihad Watch : The Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is
celebrating its twentieth anniversary of deceit, disinformation,
defamation and opposition to counter-terror programs by offering up a
video full of more of the same.
The video begins with a voice intoning, “The internment of Japanese
Americans…,” as if Muslims were being interned in the U.S., or as if
anyone were calling for their internment. “A repeat of the struggles of the African-American community…” — with
a photo of a Southern policeman setting an attack dog on a black
protester. Where have Muslims been set upon by police dogs?
a photo of a woman holding a newspaper featuring a headline about
segregation. Where have U.S. Muslims been forced into segregated
schools, except by their own choosing? “The NYPD’s anti-terror cops specifically targeted Muslims…” Whom
should they have targeted? Methodists? Amish? “Right-wing extremists”?
National Review : Hindsight is, as they say, 20/20, but even before he beheaded one co-worker at a food-distribution center in central Oklahoma last week, then began stabbing another, presumably someone had considered that Alton Nolen was . . . off.
That this characterizes the debate not only on the “Muslim street” but also within circles of Islamic scholarship is striking. Even among the most extreme fringe of Christians, one would be hard-pressed to find this degree of literal-mindedness.
It points to, says Dalrymple, “the lack of, as well as the burning need for, an Islamic Enlightenment.”
But institutional enlightenment is hard, slow-going, and often unattractive to both the faithful and those outside the religion. The maturation of Christianity afforded by challengers such as Luther, Voltaire, and Nietzsche has deepened the religion while also complicating it.
Christianity still proclaims certain pure, uncomplicated truths, but if one scrapes past the surface, complexities abound. A complex faith, with its caveats and open questions, does not lend itself to extremism.

That’s not a surprise, as Imam Imad Enchassi denounced Israel on social

In response to a story on Pamela Geller’s ad campaign critical of Islamic terrorism, he posted that, “Hate speech and ads that crosses freedom of speech and encouraged violence ought to be illegal.”
India moves closer to Israel: Indian PM Narendra Modi meets Israeli PM Netanyahu to step-up the diplomatic relations
Prime Minister Narendra Modi met his Israeli counterpart Benjamin
Netanyahu here on Sunday in a bid to step-up the diplomatic relations
between the two sides. Prime Minister Modi was accompanied by External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj during the meeting.
The Israeli Prime Minister had earlier congratulated Narendra Modi after
the BJP's emphatic win in the Lok Sabha polls via a phone call within
24 hours of the results being declared. Earlier today, Barak Ravid, the diplomatic correspondent for Israeli
newspaper Haaretz, while speaking to ANI described his country's
relationship with India as that of a mistress.
"India and Israel have had very strong and strategic relations for many
years in cooperation in security, health, and agriculture, but Israel
was always the mistress in the sense that the relations were strong but
everything was under the carpet and not public," he said.
"What will be interesting in this meeting is if Netanyahu will get an
invitation from Prime Minister Modi to come to New Delhi. If this will
take place, I think it will be very significant because the last Israeli
Prime Minister to visit India was Ariel Sharon more than ten years
ago," Ravid added. Ravid also talked about the close counter-terrorism relations that the two countries share. "I think that Israel and India are working together on counter-terrorism
for many years, especially on radical Islamic terrorism, Al-Qaeda
affiliated terrorism and Lashkar-e-Taiba affiliated terrorism," he said.

So what de f##k are the Aussies doing about it? - ADF personnel cautioned on wearing uniforms after Sydney attack reported
Sunday, September 28, 2014
ABC Net : Australian military personnel should carefully consider wearing their uniforms in public, the Defence Department says, after an officer reported being attacked in Sydney.
The 41-year old Australian Defence Force (ADF) officer said he was threatened and assaulted by two males in Sydney's north-west and suffered minor bruising, NSW police said.
The man called police to report the incident early on Thursday and later spoke to officers at the Kings Cross station.
The two alleged assailants have been described as being of Middle Eastern appearance, police said.
How America Helped Kill Middle Eastern Christianity by Rod Dreher
Orthodoxy Today : Two weeks after the Bush-Laghi meeting, on March 19, 2003, Operation Iraqi Freedom commenced.
Shortly after combat operations concluded on May 1, the real conflict began. Amid the chaos and sectarian violence that followed, Iraq’s Christians suffered severe persecution. Neither the military nor the State Department took action to protect them. In October 2003, human rights expert Nina Shea noted that religious freedom and a pluralistic Iraq were not high priorities for the administration, concluding that its “diffidence on religious freedom suggests Washington’s relative indifference to this basic human right.”
Shea added, “Washington’s refusal to insist on guarantees of religious freedom threatens to undermine its already difficult task of securing a fully democratic government in Iraq”—more prescience that would be likewise disregarded. Iraq’s diaspora Christian community in America had also foreseen the danger, and quickly took action, helping thousands of refugees with humanitarian assistance.
The Chaldean Federation’s Joseph Kassab, himself a refugee from Baathist Iraq decades before, advocated zealously for their protection. Kassab’s brother, Jabrail, a Chaldean archbishop, helped organize relief in Iraq during the sanctions from 1991-2003, doing “all that he could to help the Iraqi people—Christians and Muslims together.”
His brother remained at his post until October 2006, when a Syrian Orthodox priest, Fr. Paulos Eskander, was abducted and beheaded, after which Pope Benedict ordered him to leave Iraq. Fr. Eskander’s murder was part of a campaign that targeted the most conspicuous of Christians—the clergy. Those Iraqi Christians who fled to America would fare little better in seeking asylum.
Many Chaldeans and Assyrians were detained, until their cases were heard, in what an attorney familiar with Chaldean-asylum cases describes as “prisons,” adding that she “never worked on a case where a Chaldean was granted asylum, but I heard that it happened.” Throughout these deportation proceedings, the administration and the State Department steadfastly refused to recognize the conditions—which the U.S. had helped to bring about—as “persecution.” In consequence, most were deported.
Most were deported. Good Lord, I had no idea. What a freaking disgrace upon my country and its government.And though not as bad as Bush, the current president is still at it.
Father Douglas Bazi ministers to the spiritual and physical needs of Christian refugees.
National Review : Ainkawa, Iraq — During his days in Baghdad, Father Douglas Bazi survived a gunshot to the legs, a kidnapping that lasted nine days, and three explosions aimed at the Christian community.
He watched his church shrink from 2,600 members to only 250, some of his flock perishing and many more fleeing. So when Bazi ministers to hundreds of refugees living in flimsy tents in his Ainkawa churchyard in Kurdistan, he can relate to their suffering.“I tell them [their current situation] is not because of what God did,” Father Bazi tells me. “It is what humans or politics did. . . .
We belong to God. We don’t belong to anyone else. God saved us in the past, so let’s account for the same God, because he’s going to save us. But we have to put our hearts with God and not anyone else.”
Iraq’s Christian refugees have already chosen their faith over their comfort, but that doesn’t mean they’re not enduring a spiritual crisis in addition to a humanitarian one.
Iraq’s current turmoil has displaced more than 1.8 million people in total, many of them Christians. Some estimates suggest that between half and two-thirds of the 1.4 million Christians counted in Iraq in 2003 have since fled from central Iraq, many of them to Kurdistan. Destitute, refugees now live in tents, unfinished buildings, or under bridges. Today, 214 families — more than 700 people — have sought refuge in the front yard of Father Bazi’s church, Mar Elia.
Bacon Jihad - Did Yorkshire Muslims kick a couple off a bus for singing about a pig to their autistic child? By Katherine Timpf
National Review : A British couple is claiming that they were accused of anti-Muslim racism and thrown off of a bus for singing a song about a cartoon pig to their autistic baby daughter.
Nick Barnfield and Sara Cleaves said they were singing the Peppa Pig theme song and imitating the character in an effort to calm their crying 15-month-old while returning from a hospital visit in Sheffield to their home in South Yorkshire earlier this month.
According to the couple, a woman then complained to the driver that their behavior was clearly a racist reference to the fact that Muslims cannot eat pork.
“She was saying, ‘You’re irresponsible parents teaching your child to be racist. You shouldn’t be singing that to your daughter, it’s a song about pigs and it’s racist,’” Barnfield said.
Barnfield said the driver then ordered them to leave the bus, even though they were still two miles away from home. When the family tried to get onto another bus, he said, the driver immediately told them to leave.
“The driver from the other bus had obviously radioed out to other buses and told them not to let us on,” he said.
Barnfield said it took the family more than two hours to walk home. Footage of the incident depicts a woman talking to the couple and the driver, as well as the couple leaving the bus.
A spokesperson for the bus company, First, said that the driver has denied that racism accusations were a factor in the incident. The company is still investigating.

The Mansouri family also called for support for the Syrian

scene Shamiyah to unite and join forces and efforts to a single goal,
which is to drop the Assad regime.” The family also appears to have

Under dhimmi laws, non-Muslims under Muslim rule may not testify against
Muslims, so it is virtually impossible for Christians whose lands have
been stolen, or whose lives have been threatened, to appeal to the local
legal system. Apparently the story is only appealing when Israel can be blamed.
If you ask anyone in the Middle East the meaning of the saying, " First the Saturday people, then the Sunday people," he will answer with a smile: "First, we will get rid of those who pray on Saturday, and then we will get rid of those who pray on Sunday."

Islamic State terrorism.
confirms that 35-year-old Major Mariam Al Mansouri — the first female
air force pilot from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) — has taken part in
U.S.-led attacks on ISIS targets in Iraq in Syria this week. As the airstrikes against ISIS targets

facilities providing financial support to the terror group — much of the
attack-related attention has been focused on this female pilot who

A few months ago, CNN profiled Major Mariam Al Mansouri, and you can watch the video above.
The Bogus ‘Khorosan Group’ You never heard of it since it doesn’t exist.
National Review : We’re being had. Again.
Another victory for Obama over yet another terror group. America is safe again...oh, except for the woman beheaded in Oklahoma. His media danced and sang never bothering to check if it was true or not. HE who walks on pond scum said it so it must be true.
For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees.
Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name.
Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual worldview, which holds that empowering Islamic supremacists is the path to security and stability.
Yet even as war intensifies in Iraq and Syria — even as jihadists continue advancing, continue killing and capturing hapless opposition forces on the ground despite Obama’s futile air raids — the president won’t let go of the charade.

Christians with Middle Eastern backgrounds in Denmark
experience harassment, verbal attacks and in some cases direct violence
from Muslims. TV2 News has been in contact with a number of Christians
here in Denmark who tell of violent experiences.
Jojo was born in Denmark of Lebanese parents. She lived in Gellerupparken (a major Muslim area) until she was eight. One day she sat in her car in Nørrebro (a Muslim-dominated area in
Copenhagen). Seven young people with Arab background surrounded the car.
One of them put his foot up on the hood and stared at her. “Do you think I’m looking at you, you fucking ugly whore. Try to see
what clothes you wear, bitch,” he said to Jojo, who dresses as Danish
women do: shorts and a t-shirt in the summer.
Then he noticed the cross around her neck. “Well, you have a cross on — then you are also a Christian fucking
whore. Do you know what we do to people like you? Do you know what we do
to people like you? You get stoned,” he screamed. … The Danish police say that they do not get many reports about such
matters, but they fear that such crimes are largely under-reported,
because people do not dare to report the cases. …
TV2 News has also interviewed another woman who is persecuted for her Christian faith. She wants to remain anonymous for fear of reprisals and because she
and her son are being harassed on the block where they live. Living in
that area as a single Christian mother without a Islamic scarf makes her
stick out in an area with primarily Muslim families.
“My son is being called everything. I get called all sorts of things.
Infidel. Filthy Christians. They tell me I ought to be stoned to
death,” she says. “My son was beaten at the bus stop. He was called pig,
dirty potato (Muslim slang for Danes), and that ‘you and your mother
He then attacked another female worker (Traci Johnson), before an
off-duty sheriff's deputy shot the twat with a rifle. Both he and his
last victim have been taken to the hospital for treatment. But here's the crux, it seems that before he was fired, Nolen had been
trying to convert people to Islam. Yes, folks, dickhead is a Muslim, and
in that single sentence you know all there is to know about why this
prat murdered an innocent woman.
Just what is it about Muslims beheading people at the moment?
Obama Betrays the Troops He pledges not to use landmines, appeasing international activists at Americans’ expense.
National Review : On March 6, 2014, America’s highest-ranking military officer, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey, called anti-personnel landmines (APLs) “an important tool in the arsenal of the armed forces of the United States.” Yesterday, President Obama banned the armed forces from using them.
Why? To comply with a treaty — the Ottawa Convention — that the United States hasn’t even ratified. The U.S. Senate has not given its advice and consent to the treaty, but the Obama administration still feels compelled, in the words of a State Department spokesman, to “underscore its commitment to the spirit and humanitarian aims of the Ottawa Convention.”
In doing this, the president has effectively denied our troops the use of weapons that could help reduce U.S. casualties and help our military prevail in future conflicts. It’s not just General Dempsey who thinks so. Two major studies — one conducted by the National Research Council (NRC) and the other by NATO — concluded that APLs provide crucial tactical advantages on the battlefield.

Norway: Muslim Terrorists 'Planned to Behead Entire Family'
Eye On The World : Muslims planed to break into a random home, behead an entire family, and post a footage online.
A group of Danish Muslim extremists sympathetic to the "Islamic State"
terrorist group (IS) planned to murder an entire family and film it as a
"warning" to Western states intervening against IS in Iraq and Syria. According to Norway's NRK TV channel the group of Islamists
intended to break into a random home, slit the throats of all the
residents and post the footage online. The horrific plot is reminiscent of a similar one recently foiled in Australia,
where a group of pro-IS Islamist terrorists planned to kidnap and
behead a random member of the public and distribute footage of the
gruesome killing in "revenge" for anti-IS airstrikes. The jihadis
reportedly planned to wrap their victim in the Islamic State flag before
murdering him. Norwegian officials have declined to comment on the terror plot in their
country, but it comes after a major terror alert in July which forced
mass searches at border crossings and the closure of Olso's main
synagogue as a security precaution. A Norwegian terror expert confirmed to the Norwegian-language fyens.dk
site that "multiple sources" had confirmed the existence of such a plot. Alarmingly, not long ago another Norwegian newspaper, Verdens Gang,
claimed security services were on the alert for a group of IS
terrorists on their way to the country to carry out an attack against
Norwegian civilians involving knives. Four suspected terrorists
reportedly landed in Athens, Greece, on their way to carry out the
attack, but their current whereabouts are unknown according to the
One of the Mavi Marmara Gaza flotilla jihadists killed fighting for Al Nusra in Syria
Eye On The World : From DHA
(in Turkish): 40-year-old Yakup Bülent Alnıak identified as one of the
al-Qaida-linked Al Nusra jihadists killed in an airstrike in Syria. He
also was one of the club wielding humanitarians who traveled on a jihad
mission to Gaza back in 2010. A fitting end, which was delayed.
Obama praises as “moderate” a Muslim cleric who backed fatwa on killing of U.S. soldiers
Jihad Watch : The
political and media elites are so avid to find “moderates,” and they
know so little about Islamic doctrine, that this kind of thing happens
“Obama Praises Muslim Cleric Who Backed Fatwa on Killing of U.S. Soldiers,” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, September 24, 2014:
President Barack Obama favorably quoted and praised on
Wednesday in his speech before the United Nations a controversial Muslim
cleric whose organization has reportedly endorsed the terror group
Hamas and supported a fatwa condoning the murder of U.S. soldiers in
Obama in his remarks offered praise to controversial cleric Sheikh Abdallah Bin Bayyah
and referred to him as a moderate Muslim leader who can help combat the
Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s (ISIL or ISIS) radical ideology. However, Bin Bayyah himself has long been engulfed in controversy for many of his views, including the reported backing of a 2004 fatwa that advocated violent resistance against Americans fighting in Iraq.
Australia: Teen Muslim who screamed “Slaughter the Christians” outside Christian college charged with intimidation
Jihad Watch : He
is fourteen years old. He was a passenger in the car. Who was driving?
It is likely that he is reflecting the culture of his home and
community. Is anyone looking into that, or is he being treated as if he
were a space alien set down in the midst of an earth family, with which
he has nothing to do?
“‘Slaughter the Christians’: Teen charged after Sydney Maronite College targeted by IS threats,” by Ashlee Mullany, The Daily Telegraph, September 24, 2014 : A TEENAGE boy who screamed threats to ‘slaughter the
Christians’ outside a school in Sydney’s west has been charged with
intimidation and offensive conduct.
Police allege the 14-year-old boy from Wentworthville was sitting in
the passenger seat of a car when he yelled the abusive comments while
waving a flag outside Maronite College of the Holy Family in Harris Park
last Tuesday. Onlookers were left shaken and terrified after a nun told police the
boy was waving a flag that resembled the IS flag and had threatened to
“slaughter the Christians.”
International group of Muslim scholars “refutes” Islamic State’s Islamic case — while endorsing jihad, Sharia, caliphate
Jihad Watch : The Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Fiqh Council of North America held a press conference
in Washington today at which they declared that they had refuted the
religious ideology of the Islamic State.
They issued this lengthy “Open Letter”
(not, interestingly enough, a fatwa) addressed to the Islamic State’s
caliph Ibrahim, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, explaining how he was
Is this an Islamic case against the Islamic
State’s jihad terror that will move Islamic State fighters to lay down
their arms? Or is it a deceptive piece designed to fool gullible
non-Muslim Westerners into thinking that the case for “moderate Islam”
has been made, but which will not change a single jihadi’s mind?
Unfortunately, it is the latter. To be sure, Hamas-linked CAIR and the Fiqh Council and all the
signers of this Open Letter really do oppose the Islamic State. But they
don’t oppose it because it is transgressing against the commands of
what they believe to be a Religion of Peace. They oppose it because they
want to establish a caliphate under the auspices of or led by the
Muslim Brotherhood, and the Islamic State constitutes competition.
is clear from their sly endorsements in this document of jihad, the
Sharia, and the concept of the caliphate. It begins with an “Executive Summary” which is then filled out in
greater detail. I will intersperse commentary below, first in general
terms on the Executive Summary, and then taking up the arguments on each
point in detail.
UK: Jihad preacher Anjem Choudary among nine arrested in anti-terrorism raid
Jihad Watch : What
took them so long? Anjem Choudary for years has been preaching jihad
and sedition, and praising Islamic jihad murderers.
He was a friend of
Mujaahid Abu Hamza (aka Michael Adebolajo), who murdered soldier Lee
Rigby on a London street, and other jihadists.
It has struck so many
people so odd that he has lived and operated freely in Britain for so
long that it has long been widely rumored that he was really a spy, a
“honeypot” to attract genuine jihadists who would then be arrested. But
apparently he wasn’t.
Unless this arrest is an elaborate ruse, it makes
clear that Choudary’s longtime freedom was just more of the British
government’s suicidal appeasement policy toward Islamic supremacists. “Anjem Choudary held in London terror raids,” BBC, September 25, 2014: Nine men, including the radical Islamist preacher Anjem
Choudary, have been arrested in London on suspicion of being members of a
Islamic State destroys 7th-century Green Church in Tikrit
Jihad Watch : This
is nothing for Christians in the West to be concerned about: everyone,
including both secular and Christian leaders, assures us that it has
nothing to do with Islam. Go back to sleep.
“ISIS blow up Tikrit’s Green Church,” ANSA, September 25, 2014 :
(ANSA) – Cairo, September 25 – Islamic State (ISIS)
militants have “completely destroyed” the iconic Green Church in the
northern Iraqi city of Tikrit, the MENA news agency reported Thursday,
citing Iraqi security sources.
The Islamists packed the church – one of the oldest Christian
monuments in the Middle East – with explosives before detonating them.
Blazing Cat Fur : On the evening of Sept. 12, 2006, my wife and I were dining in Krakow
with Polish friends when an agitated Italian Vaticanista (pardon the
redundancy in adjectives) called, demanding to know what I thought of
“Zees crazee speech of zee Pope about zee Muslims.”
That was my first hint that the herd of independent minds in the
world press was about to go ballistic on the subject of Pope Benedict
XVI’s Regensburg Lecture: a “gaffe”-bone on which the media continued to
gnaw until the end of Benedict’s pontificate.
Eight years later, the Regensburg Lecture looks a lot different.
Indeed, those who actually read it in 2006 understood that, far from
making a “gaffe,” Benedict XVI was exploring with scholarly precision
two key questions, the answers to which would profoundly influence the
civil war raging within Islam, a war the outcome of which will determine
whether 21st-century Islam is safe for its own adherents and safe for the world.
Jihadist says Foley, Cantlie converted to Islam in captivity
Jihad Watch : The
Qur’an says that “there is no compulsion in religion,” (2:256), but
what constitutes “compulsion” is in the eye of the beholder.
institutionalized subjugation of the dhimma, with its regular
humiliation and harassment, from which one can be freed for the simple
price of converting to Islam, is not considered compulsion.
Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig, the journalists who were kidnapped and forced to convert to Islam
— even though their conversions were obviously coerced, their captors
made them say that they were converting freely, and the captors probably
believed that themselves. After all, the journos could have chosen to
be killed instead “Jihadist says Foley, Cantlie converted to Islam in captivity,” AFP, September 24, 2014:
Brussels (AFP) – Western journalists James Foley and John
Cantlie converted to Islam while being held hostage in Syria, a Belgian
newspaper quoted a jihadist suspect as saying Wednesday, adding that
the pair may have been forced to do so. Foley, an American, was beheaded by the Islamic State (IS) group last
month, while Cantlie, a Briton, is believed to be still in captivity.
Signals of jihad in Australia have been building for years
Blazing Cat Fur : On Wednesday, Fairfax Media ran an opinion piece by a Muslim woman who
wrote: "I still feel the scars of the Cronulla riots, where the flag of
my beloved country was used as a symbol of pure hatred, of thuggery and
This is ironic given that most of the hatred, thuggery and racism at
Cronulla in December, 2005, came from Muslims. The demonstration and
fracas at Cronulla beach, on December 11, was sparked by hundreds of
incidents of harassment and violence by young Lebanese-Australian men,
mainly directed at young women in bikinis or short skirts. I conducted
dozens of interviews after the event and they can be summed up by a
teacher at Cronulla High School: "I have felt afraid for the safety of my family for the last 10 years
[from] gangs of men of Middle Eastern appearance who have taunted,
bullied or assaulted groups or individuals. My daughter has been taunted
consistently when she goes to the beach… Women in swimming costumes…
are often intimidated or taunted with 'sluts' and 'filth' and told they
are 'asking for it'."
Guardian on Aussie terrorist killed by police: ‘Abdul Numan Haider was quiet, gentle and softly spoken, friend says’
Abdul Numan Haider attended a Muslim youth camp
Youth camp mate says teen terrorism suspect shot dead by police in Melbourne seemed to be looking for answers
Blazing Cat Fur : At a Muslim youth camp in Victoria early last year, Abdul Numan Haider
attended every lecture, enthusiastically took part in sport and tried
his best at camp quizzes.
He had to be woken up for dawn prayer but he
never complained. Haider’s cabin mate, Mohammed Ibrahim, spent nine days with him and
remembers him as “quiet, very gentle, very softly spoken”. The camp
catered for young people of all backgrounds, many from disadvantaged
families. The theme last year was “The Prophet”. Ibrahim says he remembers, too, that Haider seemed to be looking for
answers, and asking questions. He was curious, trying to work out his
place in the world, and in Australia, as a young Muslim man. “I didn’t think he was very learned about the religion. His knowledge
was basic, he was not well informed,” he said. “I do remember he was
the most gentle, quiet, loving person in the camp”... The Sydney Morning Herald reported.
The Khorasan Threat A new al-Qaeda offshoot targeting the West. By Tom Rogan
‘When black flags emerge from the east . . .”
— Quote from a hadith (reported saying of Mohammad)
National Review : Khorasan is a historic region of central and southern Asia. But
when an al-Qaeda splinter group embraced “Khorasan” as its name, it
wasn’t thinking about geography. Rather, it was seeking the identity of
It would be a black-flag-bearing army
descending from the metaphorical mountains of despair and advancing
toward a war for holy justice. For these jihadists, the name “Khorasan”
holds mystical significance as nomenclature for God’s army: that which
cannot be defeated.
Khorasan sees itself as a movement of divinely inspired, valiant warriors, unafraid and certain of ordained victory.
The Battle of Kobane Where ISIS and Syrian Kurdish clash.
National Review : Erbil, Iraq — Heavily armed Islamic State militants currently surround the Syrian city of Kobane, also known as Ayn Al-Arab, from three sides; on the fourth lies the Turkish border. Inside the city, a 74-year-old Kurdish man named Uztas Osman waits with his rickety old Kalashnikov, ready to defend his hometown.
“He says he will stay ‘until ISIS comes next to my door,’” his anxious daughter, Sherin Sheihk Othman, tells me from her home in Erbil, Iraq, where she lives with her husband. She has the TV on constantly, Facebook open, and she’s calling her father several times an hour for updates. The fight to defend Kobane has heated up this week as the Islamic State launched a major offensive against the city.
Already in recent days, it has captured around 60 villages nearby. Meanwhile, a coalition of the United States and Arab forces has began a large-scale air campaign against the Islamic State in Syria, focusing its efforts in Raqqa and Aleppo, and along the Iraqi–Syrian border.
Many Kurds in the region want the United States and international forces to also provide air support to help the Kurdish forces and local militiamen preparing to defend Kobane, which is not only home to many Syrian Kurds; recently, the city has also served as a refuge for tens of thousands of Christians and Arabs.
But the battle of Kobane is not just a local matter. A shared border with Turkey gives it geopolitical importance. The Islamic State, The Economist reported this week, “sees the territory as strategic because it lies close to the edges of its ‘caliphate’ and to a supply route used by foreign fighters joining the group.”
ISIS on Ice Have the Moderate Muslims been found? By Christine Sisto
National Review : As a Muslim terrorist army continues to ravage Syria and Iraq and behead British and American civilians, it can be difficult to remember that there are millions of moderate Muslims with no ill feeling toward the Western countries.
But while the cohort of “moderate Muslims” often seems to exist more in political speeches and punditry than in reality, a group of believers in the United Kingdom are drawing a line between their religion and the Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL).
British Muslims are speaking out in a social-media campaign called #NotInMyName, which aims not only to oppose the Islamic State but to dispel frequent criticisms that Muslim populations stay silent in the face of Islamist terror.
