Turkey (Created on the blood of Slaughtered Christians) : Armenian Apostolic Church sues government for return of its historic seat, seized during Armenian Genocide
Jihad Watch : “This is the time that we move from the stage of [Genocide] recognition to reparation.”
Bravo. Free people may hope that the Church will prevail in the
European Court of Human Rights, but it’s likely that the Turks will
simply refuse to recognize their ruling if it goes against them. Still,
any pushback against the advancing jihad is good, as there is so very
little of it.
04/30/2021 Turkey (International
Christian Concern) – After a six-year struggle for a court hearing, the
Armenian Apostolic Church Holy See, known as the Catholicosate of
Cilicia, successfully refiled a lawsuit against the government of
Turkey. In 2015, the Catholicosate, currently headquartered in Antelias,
Lebanon, filed a lawsuit for the return of its historic seat and
primary location in Sis, Turkey that was confiscated in 1921 during the
Armenian Genocide. The lawsuit is part of Armenian’s larger goal of
returning all properties and assets confiscated by Turkey during the
Due to technicalities, the lawsuit bounced between local courts,
Turkey’s Constitutional Court, and the ECHR. A pre-trial hearing finally
took place on March 30, 2021 in the Kozan Civil Litigation Court. At
that time a judge agreed to accept the lawsuit, which the
Catholicosate’s lawyers consider a positive development. The next
hearing is scheduled for May 6, 2021.
The team of lawyers suspects the lower Turkish court will reject the
lawsuit, at which point an appeal will be made to the Constitutional
Court. Rejection is also suspected at this point which will allow the
Catholicosate to file with the European Court of Human Rights.
When the original lawsuit was filed in 2015, Catholicos Aram I said, “This is the time that we move from the stage of [Genocide] recognition to reparation….
LAHORE: Muslim nurses at Punjab Institute for Mental
Health last Tuesday took over the church at the hospital that was used
for service on Sundays reportedly after a controversial video uploaded
against Pakistan by an unidentified person from France. The contents of
the video are not being shared here to avoid further controversy.
The Muslim nurses at the hospital were so infuriated, they took over
the church and threatened their Christian colleagues with blasphemy
cases if they failed to raze the church and convert to Islam.
The dispute went on for almost two weeks after which a 15-member
negotiating team brokered an agreement with the help of senior doctors
and Father James Chaman. The two parties agreed that there would be no
further statements issued from and the parties won’t file any further
complaints against each other….

“Government has ‘washed its hands’ of teacher who showed Mohammed pictures,” by Camilla Turner, Telegraph, May 3, 2021:
The Government has “washed its hands” of the Batley
Grammar School teacher who was suspended after showing pictures of the
Prophet Mohammed in class, it has been claimed. Ministers are not doing enough to ensure that Batley Multi Academy
Trust’s investigation is “unduly influenced” by local imams, according
to the National Secular Society (NSS).
Officials at the Department for Education (DfE) are also accused of
failing to ensure that the probe will examine the school’s reaction to
the incident and whether it was appropriate to immediately suspend the
teacher. “This is a bit of a test case for how these things are handled,
that’s why it is important,” said Stephen Evans, chief executive of the
“Here we have a teacher in fear of his life, in hiding and suspended
from his job – yet there is nothing to indicate the materials were not
handled correctly. “We are concerned that the Department for Education doesn’t seem
interested enough given that the outcome of this will have national
implications. They have washed their hands of it.”
Batley Grammar School sent pupils home early for the Easter holidays
and issued an apology after a group of Muslims gathered at the gates to
protest. The headmaster announced that the Religious Studies teacher had
been suspended while the school looked into what happened. The 29-year-old teacher and his family went into hiding after reportedly receiving death threats in the wake of the protests.
Mr Evans said that ministers must appreciate the “broader
significance” of the case, which had “already sent a damaging message on
teachers’ ability to encourage critical thinking on culturally
sensitive issues”. He said that “fundamental principles are at stake”, adding that if
the Government failed to show leadership, it would leave the school and
trust “vulnerable to pressure from assertive religious voices”.
The academy trust that runs Batley Grammar School announced at the
end of March that it would carry out an “independent” investigation into
the context in which the cartoon was shown. The trust, which runs three secondaries and two primaries in West
Yorkshire, said it would appoint a panel which would make a series of
recommendations about the Religious Studies curriculum.
Announcing the investigation in March, the trust said it would
examine “how certain materials, which caused offence, came to be used in
a Religious Studies lesson at Batley Grammar”….
Has the Attorney General’s Chambers given free licence to insult non-Islamic faiths? A dangerous stand to take!
Tuesday, May 04, 2021
Malaysians are taken aback with disbelief to learn that the
Attorney General’s Chambers (AGC) has no plans to prosecute two Muslim
converts for allegedly insulting non-Islamic faiths.
are told that the AGC was unwilling to prosecute Perlis-based preacher
Zamri Vinoth Kalimuthu and Multiracial Reverted Muslims founder and
president Firdaus Wong Wai Hung as police had classified their cases as
“no further action (NFA).”
It is very strange that the AGC should
take instructions from the police. Normally, it is the other way around.
There have been cases when the attorney general returned the files to
the police, instructing them to investigate further.
despite a thousand police reports having been made against these
hate-preachers, the attorney general meekly accepts the police decision
to close the case. A thousand reports mean nothing at all? Don’t they
have any impact? Isn’t it obvious that thousands of people are upset,
enraged and outraged? Compare this to other cases when one or two
police reports were made, the police sprang to action to preserve our
peace and harmony.
If some stupid idiot insults Islam, quick
action is taken – as it should be – to safeguard our unity and peaceful
way of life. This is how it should be. The same concern should have come
to play in this instance and immediate action should have been taken
when any other faith is ridiculed and condemned.
Jihad Watch : 1. Islam is not a race, and Muslims are not all of one race. There are Muslims, as well as jihadis, of all races.
2. Opposition to jihad violence and Sharia oppression of women and others is not “racism” or “xenophobia.”
3. Printing slogans on signs in pseudo-Arabic and pseudo-Urdu is not art.
4. Faisal Hussain is not oppressed or marginalized. He is a
privileged member of Britain’s new elite. He has an art show featured at
a gallery. Would the same gallery feature an exhibitions of slogans
about opposing jihad terrorism and the oppression of women justified by
Sharia? Not on your life.
AN ART exhibition exploring the “victimisation” of
Muslims in the UK and abroad is a response to the rise in racism against
the community, its creator has said. Faisal Hussain’s Suspect Objects Suspect Subjects (SOSS) analyses the
impact of government policy and monitoring of the Muslim community, the
multi-faceted channels used to influence bias and its subsequent effect
Although currently available to view virtually, it will be open to
view from May 18 at SOAS’s Brunei Gallery in central London (dependent
on government guidance). In an interview with Eastern Eye, Hussain said SOSS was his response
to the global rise in racism against Muslims. The manner in which
Muslims were represented in the media, as well as the online abuse and
racist attacks the group endures were additional contributing factors.
“It was affecting who I was, so I felt the need to respond,” the
43-year- old artist explained. “I began adopting a more analytical
approach to what different media were reporting and what actions the UK
government was taking in different ways in Birmingham through failed
surveillance and educational interventions.”
Hussain is known for using everyday items to get his point across –
whether it is a kebab shop sign inscribed with the words “Go Back to
Where You Hate From”, or the “positive facade but harmful core” of
cupcakes to symbolise the government’s Prevent scheme.
The Birmingham-based artist is known for incorporating humour into
his work too, using it as a mechanism to question perceptions on
identity and race. For instance, an installation of toy guns titled
Muslamic Rayguns is a reference to the viral video of an English Defence
League (EDL) march from 2011.

Jihad Watch : Do their murdered victims get to leave hatred behind?
“Filmmaker hopes new doc on Canadian and other ISIS brides will help ‘leave hatred behind,’ allow repatriation,” CBC News, April 30, 2021 Last Updated: April 30, 2021 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
Hamilton native Kimberly Polman is among former ISIS
brides featured in The Return: Life After ISIS by Alba Sotorra Clua and
her Barcelona-based production company, and the filmmaker hopes the new
documentary will give insight into the issues surrounding repatriation.
Sotorra Clua said the documentary, currently one of the films being
shown digitally during the Hot Docs Festival, focuses on the plight of
Polman and other women from Western countries who joined the Islamic
State in Iraq and Syria, but then came to regret it.
“This brings a different light on the issues and the question of
repatriation,” Sotorra Clua told CBC News via telephone from Barcelona. “Civil society, politicians and policymakers — it can make them rethink the way we are dealing with this issue. “At the moment, the Western world is rejecting repatriation, and
maybe if they watch the film, they can have a different point of view,”
said Sotorra Clua, of Alba Sotorra Cinema Productions….
The group of Western women in the Syrian detention camp featured in
the documentary are from different parts of the world, including Canada,
the U.S., the U.K., the Netherlands and Germany. They include Briton Shamima Begum and Hoda Muthana, both from the United States….
“The only way out for all of us is to leave hatred behind and start
over with compassion, forgiveness and understanding,” Sotorra Clua

Islam is the one aspect of the conflict that is routinely ignored or

Dr. Kablawi thanked the
Israelis for building the settlements that would serve as housing for
the Muslims when they take the land back, and the Israelis run away
“like mice.” He said that every Muslim “should talk to himself about
dying for the sake of Allah.” Dr. Kablawi asked why only Muslims who die
for their cause are considered terrorists, while non-Muslims such as
Nelson Mandela, Gandhi, Che Guevara, and Bob Marley are considered
He elaborated that Christians claim that Jesus died for his
cause, for their sins, but according to Islam Jesus didn’t die. Dr.
Kablawi explained that Islam has come to tell the Christians that Jesus
is alive, yet they fight Islam in return.

Jihad Watch : The attempt to be a thoughtful Muslim must
be exhausting. There are so many mental landmines to avoid and
crumbling foundations to shore up when trying to build a consistent and
coherent Muslim worldview.
This is seen clearly though not by any
means exclusively in the schizophrenic mindset that on the one hand
boasts of the supremacy of Islam over all other powers or beliefs and on
the other hand rushes to claim victim status whenever Islam proves to
be weak or at fault in some moral evil committed by its followers in the
name of Allah.
This supremacist attitude is woven throughout the Qur’an and Muslim
writings. Allah assures his followers that they are at the top of the
heap of humanity (“You are the best of all peoples evolved for mankind” —
Qur’an 3:110). He informs them that Islam is the perfect faith (“Today I
have perfected your religion for you” — Qur’an 5:3). Muhammad tells his
denizens that the age of jahiliyyah (i.e., ignorance of Allah and his
ways) is now over, and that unbelief is no longer going to be tolerated.
Anything not in accord with Islam is to be eradicated (something the
Taliban, ISIS and Salafi Muslims have taken to heart in destroying
religious sculptures, shrines and museums of religious and cultural
artifacts from bygone eras).
Unbelievers (the kuffar) are to be won over
to Islam or forced to kneel in submission to Islamic rule and pay the
onerous yearly head tax known as jizya, or to face the sword of the
Islamic state until they lose their heads (literally). Allah assures his
jihadis that they will surely be victorious since he will send his
angels to fight alongside them and they will overcome huge odds:

“Pakistan PM Imran Khan urges the Muslim world to unite and use trade
boycotts to force the West to pass blasphemy laws to protect the
Prophet,” by Rachel Bunyan and James Tapsfield, MailOnline, April 27, 2021:
Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan has boasted that his
plan for Muslim-majority countries to unite and force Western
governments to criminalise insulting the Prophet Mohammed will work. The 68-year-old leader said lobbying Western nations, the EU and UN
to adopt blasphemy laws with a warning of a trade boycott if they do not
do so will be ‘effective’ in achieving their goal.
He said leaders of Muslim-majority countries should call on the West
to ‘stop hurting the feelings’ of Muslims across the world with their
current freedom of speech laws, reports Pakistani newspaper Dawn. Khan said insulting Islam’s Prophet should be treated in the same way
as questioning the Holocaust, which is a crime in some European
‘My way is to take heads of all Muslim countries into confidence,’ Khan said in an address on Monday. ‘Together we should ask Europe, the European Union and United Nations
to stop hurting the feelings of 1.25 billion Muslims like they do not
do in [the] case of Jews.’ ‘I want the Muslim countries to devise a joint line of action over
the blasphemy issue with a warning of trade boycott of countries where
such incidents will happen,’ Khan continued. ‘This will be the most
effective way to achieve the goal.’
Khan said Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has already discussed
the plan with four foreign ministers from Muslim-majority countries. Britain’s former foreign secretary Sir Malcolm Rifkind told
MailOnline that trying to force Western countries to bring in such a ban
would be ‘foolish’. ‘That is a pretty foolish decision. It is not countries that insult
the Prophet Mohammed, it’s individual citizens. However distasteful that
might be, as in Pakistan it is the law of the United Kingdom or any
other country to determine whether they are allowed to do that or not,’
Sir Malcolm said.
He said it should be for the courts to decide whether insulting the Prophet breached the law. ‘We already have laws about hate crimes, which apply regardless of a
particular religion. I do not think there should be a separate law for

For Israel, It’s Time to Recognize the Armenian Genocide
Jihad Watch : The recognition by the United States of the Armenian Genocide now
puts more pressure on those nations that have yet to do so, and
especially on Israel, that has until now refused, for reasons of
misplaced — and increasingly nonsensical — realpolitik.

Israel has for so long refused to recognize the first genocide of the

that Paty should not have insulted Muhammad. The French were not
willing to tolerate any “

Paty’s murder should have been unequivocal. No hint of justification was
acceptable. But instead, multitudes of Muslims from France, Pakistan
and across the Islamic world justified his murder, some more tacitly and
Following Paty’s murder (as well as revelations about the horrific and shocking circumstances around it, involving schoolchildren and even relatives), the French government heightened its crackdown on “Islamic separatism.”
In response, the Muslim lobby in France and beyond retaliated by
accusing the French government of being “Islamophobic.” Condemnation
came from as far away as Egypt, where the renowned Al Azhar in Cairo condemned Macron’s plan for fighting “Islamic separatism” as an “explicit call for racism and hate.” Macron came out in defense of the “right to blaspheme.” In Britain, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, also supports this right to blaspheme.
In any Western society, there is no room to accommodate any religion
that violates the tenets of a free society. The freedom of speech is a
cornerstone of any free society. And in any Western society, one can
easily see that there are no religions except Islam that persistently
and relentlessly attack this freedom, taking their fight all the way to
the United Nations. That’s because offending Islam is a crime under the
Sharia — a law that is at odds with otherwise universally accepted
principles of human rights. “Islamophobia” initiatives from mainstream Muslim groups are intended to put a stop to any speech that may be offensive to Islam and Muslims.

The barrages were the worst assault from the Strip in many months and while there were no Israeli injuries, the rockets did cause damage in a number of communities.
In response, the Israeli military struck multiple Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip in the early hours of Saturday morning, including rocket launchers and underground infrastructure, the army said, in response to several salvos of rockets fired into Israel overnight.
There were no immediate reports of casualties in the Gaza strikes.
Sirens sounded in numerous Israeli communities near the Strip overnight, including Ashkelon and the Eshkol, Sdot Negev, Sha’ar Hanegev and Hof Ashkelon regional councils.
The Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted six of the projectiles. Some fell in communities while others landed in open areas.
Iron Dome is programmed to not deploy when rockets are projected to hit non-populated areas — it was unclear why it had not activated to intercept the projectiles that landed in the border towns.
Two terror groups in Gaza took responsibility for the rocket fire — Fatah’s Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine’s Abu Ali Mustapha Brigades. Israel has stressed in the past it holds the ruling Hamas terror group responsible for all violence emanating from Gaza.

Islamic State flourishing in Christian-majority Democratic Republic of the Congo, with mass slaughter of Christians
Jihad Watch : The Allied Democratic forces is rampaging through the Christian-majority Democratic Republic of Congo. Like many other jihadist groups
on a mission to establish a caliphate in Africa (and beyond), the
Allied Democratic Forces are affiliated with the Islamic State, which is
the principal, but by no means only, group waging violent jihad to
advance Sharia across Africa.
The mass killing of innocent Christian
families is an ongoing phenomenon in the DRC; all while the UN and other

The United States State Department classified an Islamic
State-affiliate in the Democratic Republic of the Congo as a terrorist
group last month. The Allied Democratic Forces was formed in Uganda in
the 1990s in a Muslim revolt against Ugandan dictator Yoweri Museveni.
Pressure from Museveni forced the group to flee to the neighboring
Democratic Republic of the Congo. They have since allied themselves with
the Islamic State and rebranded themselves as Islamic State-Central
Also put on sanctions was the Mozambique-based jihadist group
Al-Shabaab (no apparent relation to the Somali group of the same name).
Al-Shabaab recently was in the news for laying bloody siege to the
Mozambican city of Palma. Sub-Saharan Africa isn’t generally considered a major battleground
for radical Islam. But the State Department designations shows how
serious Islamic terrorism is in Africa. According to the State
Department press release, the Allied Democratic Forces killed at least
849 Congolese civilians in 2020 alone. Al-Shabaab, meanwhile, is
responsible for thousands of deaths since 2017, as well as the
displacement of hundreds of thousands.
As serious as the threat is today, the Allied Democratic Forces (adf)
was almost snuffed out by the Congolese Army in 2015. Its founder,
Jamil Mukulu, was apprehended, and its membership was estimated by the
United Nations to be as low as 65. His successor, Seka Musa Baluku,
needed new life breathed into the movement. He found it by pledging
allegiance with the Islamic State. This opened up foreign sponsorship to
the adf, now under a new name, and it has been wreaking havoc in D.R.
Congo ever since. The Islamic State provides finances and training to
the Congolese terrorist group; however, it doesn’t manage the group’s
Although the Allied Democratic Forces-cum-Islamic State–Central
African Province is a brutal organization, it isn’t made exactly in the
same mold as the Islamic State. It once fought alongside Christian
militia groups against the Congolese government. Some of its practices,
such as having female and child soldiers, aren’t common with the Middle
Eastern Islamic State. The Islamic State also doesn’t seem to take its Central African
“province” too seriously. Of the estimated $100 million the group has
accumulated, it has spent only $1 million on Central Africa.
The marriage between the Allied Democratic Forces and the Islamic State seems to be one of convenience. And the Islamic State seems to be an unreliable partner at best. It
may have made sense to associate with it several years ago, when it was
strong and controlled much territory. But the Islamic State’s caliphate
has been wiped out of Iraq and nearly out of Syria. Its former leader,
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is now dead. The days when the Islamic State
seemed like the premier terrorist group in the world appear to be over.
Will the Allied Democratic Forces soon be looking for another sponsor?
A possible option is Iran. The brutality of the Islamic State
and other groups have stolen some of Iran’s limelight, but it is still
the number one terrorist-sponsoring nation in the world.
the Islamic State, it has all the resources of a fully-functioning
country behind it. It has a professional military and sizable economy.
Tehran’s terrorist proxies, like Hamas in Gaza and Hezbollah in Lebanon,
control territories themselves. And Iran has a long track record of
sponsoring radical Islam in Africa. It supported the Muslim
Brotherhood’s takeover of Egypt.
It sponsors al-Shabaab in Somalia and
may even be linked to Mozambique’s al-Shabaab movement (which, in turn,
is affiliated with Islamic State–Central African Province). Esmail

solutions to these problems, they never delivered. As always,
blame-shifting and deflection will define how Harapan handles issues
is pointless laying the blame on PN because, ultimately, it was
Harapan’s responsibility to repeal these laws because, for the Malay uber alles government, sedition laws were always tools in their box of dirty tricks.
The Bengali Hindu Genocide. Deepali Kulkarni and Debleena Biswas talk about the Genocide of Bengali Hindus. This is a story that is not discussed enough. We know it happened, but do we know the scale of the genocide? Do we know the sociological and psychological consequences of the same? Also, why do Hindus not receive the same level of hearing when it comes to their pain and misery?
My family was among those. Some were able to flee. Some unfortunately couldn’t. The stories are scary and the fact remains that it’s still not safe to be a Hindu in Bangladesh. The rapidly shrinking numbers speak for themselves.
Turkey built on the blood of the Byzantine Christians - The Armenian Genocide Forges On
Sunday, April 25, 2021
BCF : Today, April 24th, is Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day, marking 106
years since the start of the Armenian Genocide, when the Ottoman Turks
massacred approximately 1.5 million Armenians during World War I. Biden’s handlers recognize Armenian Genocide.
Raymond Ibrahim : Today, April 24, is Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day, marking 106
years since the start of the Armenian Genocide, when the Ottoman Turks
massacred approximately 1.5 million Armenians during World War I.
Most objective historians who have examined the topic unequivocally agree that it was a deliberate, calculated genocide. According to the Genocide Education Project:
than one million Armenians perished as the result of execution,
starvation, disease, the harsh environment, and physical abuse. A
people who lived in eastern Turkey for nearly 3,000 years [more than
double the amount of time the invading Islamic Turks had occupied
Anatolia, now known as “Turkey”] lost its homeland and was profoundly
decimated in the first large-scale genocide of the twentieth century.
At the beginning of 1915 there were some two million Armenians within
Turkey; today there are fewer than 60,000….
Despite the vast
amount of evidence that points to the historical reality of the Armenian
Genocide, eyewitness accounts, official archives, photographic
evidence, the reports of diplomats, and the testimony of survivors,
denial of the Armenian Genocide by successive regimes in Turkey has gone
on from 1915 to the present.
Not only has Turkey
repeatedly denied culpability for the Armenian Genocide; it appears
intent on reigniting it, most recently by helping Azerbaijan wage war on
Armenia in the context of the Nagorno-Karabakh dispute, which again
erupted in late 2020.
As Nikol Pashinyan, Armenia’s prime minister, observed
in October 2020: “Why has Turkey returned to the South Caucasus 100
years [after the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire]? To continue the
Among other ISIS-like behavior, these mercenaries and their Azerbaijani partners “tortured beyond recognition” an intellectually disabled 58-year-old Armenian woman by hacking off her ears, hands, and feet, before murdering her. Her family was only able to identify her by her clothes.
“Armenians,” according to a December 2020 report,
“are being brutalized” and have “lost territory to their jihadist
neighbors before agreeing to a cease-fire enforced by Russia…. Prior to
violating the so-called peace agreement, the Turkish Muslims of
Azerbaijan did as Muhammad commanded in beheading Christians.”
The report linked to a video of
soldiers in camouflage overpowering a struggling, elderly Armenian man
to the ground, before casually carving at his throat with a knife.
“Azerbaijan has accused Armenia of violating the peace deal first,” the report continues, “but observers note the only provocation Muslims need to attack Armenians is their continued existence.”
Anti-infidel rhetoric underscores this view. A captured terrorist confessed that
he was “promised a monthly 2000 dollar payment for fighting against
‘kafirs’ in Artsakh, and an extra 100 dollar for each beheaded ‘kafir.’”
(Kafir, often translated as “infidel,” is Arabic for non-Muslims who
fail to submit to Islamic authority, which by default makes them enemies
worthy of slavery or death.)
Similarly, Armenian churches that
came under Azerbaijani control have been desecrated—despite promises
from the authorities to protect them. In one instance, a
soldier—unclear whether an Azeri or a jihadi mercenary from Syria or
Iraq—was videotaped standing atop a church chapel, where the cross had
been broken off, and triumphantly shouting “Allahu Akbar!” Azerbaijani forces also shelled and destroyed Holy Savior, an iconic Armenian cathedral which was “consecrated
in 1888 but was damaged during the March 1920 massacre of Armenians of
the city by Azerbaijanis and experienced a decades-long decline.”
recently, according to a March 29, 2021 report, over the course of just
two weeks, at least three Armenian churches in the Nagorno-Karabakh
region were recently vandalized or destroyed by Azerbaijani forces—even though ceasefire was declared in November. Video footage of
the desecration of one of these churches shows Azerbaijani troops
entering the Christian place of worship, and then laughing, mocking,
kicking, and defacing Christian items inside it, including a fresco of
the Last Supper. Turkey’s flag appears on the Azerbaijani servicemen’s
uniform, further implicating the Erdogan government of involvement. As
they approach, one of the Muslim soldiers says, “Let’s now enter their church, where I will perform namaz.”
(Namaz is a reference to Muslim prayers; when Muslims pray inside
non-Muslim temples, they immediately become mosques.) In response to
this video, Arman Tatoyan, an Armenian human rights activist, issued a statement:
President of Azerbaijan and the country’s authorities have been
implementing a policy of hatred, enmity, ethnic cleansing and genocide
against Armenia, citizens of Armenia and the Armenian people for years.
The Turkish authorities have done the same or have openly encouraged
the same policy.
By way of example, he said
that Azerbaijan’s President Aliyev proudly stated in early March that
“the younger generation has grown up with hatred toward the enemy,”
Such hate, which is a precursor to genocide, seems evident everywhere. One need only listen to a Turkish man rant in a video about
how all Armenians are “dogs,” and that any found in Turkey should be
slaughtered for an idea of the impetus fueling this hate:
is an Armenian doing in my country? Either the state expels them or we
kill them. Why do we let them live?… We will slaughter them when the
time comes…. This is Turkish soil. How are we Ottoman grandchildren?….
The people of Turkey who have honor, dignity, and Allah must cut the
heads of the Armenians in Turkey. It is dishonorable for anyone to meet
and not kill an Armenian… If we are human, let us do this—let us do it
for Allah…. Everyone listening, if you love Allah, please spread this
video of me to everyone…
Similarly, in response to a
question being asked to random passersby on the streets of Turkey—“If
you could get away with one thing, what would you do?”—a woman recently replied on video: “What would I do? Behead 20 Armenians.” She then looked directly at the camera, and smiled while nodding her head.
of this genocidal hate is unsurprising, considering that Turkish public
school textbooks continue demonizing Armenians—in fact, Christians in
general, and Jews—as a recent study found.
Turks, who are not affected by the Armenian/Azerbaijani conflict, feel
this way, it should be unsurprising that any number of Azerbaijanis do
too. Thus, for Nurlan Ibrahimov,
head of the press service of Qarabag football club of Azerbaijan, “We
[Azerbaijanis] must kill all Armenians—children, women, the elderly.
[We] need to kill [them] without [making a] distinction. No regrets, no
Accordingly, today, on Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day, it is well to remember not only what happened then, but what is clearly being primed to happen again.
I Left Islam for Liberal Values. Now Woke Liberals Are Embracing a New Religion
BCF : I was raised in a religious Muslim home and practiced the faith for a
Eventually, I realized I was not a religious man, after
spending a long time educating myself, immersed in our texts. Certain
things bothered me after I investigated them deeply.
I felt the hijab
was misogynistic, and I opposed the strain of violence that had emerged
from our holy books. Then there were the blasphemy laws outlined in the
Quran, which seemed like the opposite of the liberal values I believe
in. As a secular man, I went about my life, working as a contractor for
the Canadian military for over a decade in Kosovo, Sudan, Bosnia, Haiti,
and then Afghanistan.
I encountered other Muslims, and others like me,
who were no longer Muslim. But when I came back to Canada in 2014, I
returned to a different country than the one I had left.
The Question Of Whether Americans Should Pay Reparations Is Thornier Than You Might Think
BCF : After being first proposed more than 30 years ago by Rep. John Conyers,
D-Michigan, the 116th Congress of the United States voted last week to
advance H.R. 40, the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation
Proposals for African-American Act.
Aided by the Democratic Party’s
control of the executive and legislative branches of government, the
current sentiment in the country regarding racial justice and equity may
provide the bill’s proponents the opening they seek. To start, it’s worth noting reparations are not without precedent.
The United States paid reparations to Japanese-Americans as restitution for their internment during World War II. It also made reparations to American Indians for seizing their land and mismanaging natural resources. Yet paying reparations to black Americans who are the descendants of slaves is likely to prove more contentious for a multitude of reasons, not the least of which is the vast length of time that has passed since slavery ended, coupled with the fact no living person has participated in the heinous practice. Indeed, as it violates our fundamental sense of fairness and justice, we tend not to visit the sins of the father upon the son in this country.
Furthermore, while all the relevant demographic data isn’t reliable, it is safe to assert the majority of non-black Americans are descendants of individuals that immigrated to the United States after the end of the Civil War in 1865.
France: Muslim migrant stabs police officer in throat, kills her, authorities not sure it’s terrorism
Saturday, April 24, 2021
Jihad Watch : And so the same grim comic opera plays out yet again. Darmanin is
going to Yvelines to offer support. Great. But what is he doing to
address this problem realistically and ensure it never happens again?
“When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks…” (Qur’an 47:4)
“Yvelines: attack at the Rambouillet police station, the stabbed
police officer dies,” translated from “Yvelines : attaque au
commissariat de Rambouillet, la fonctionnaire de police poignardée est
décédée,” by Julien Constant and Jean-Michel Decugis, Le Parisien, April 23, 2021:
Shortly before 2:30 p.m. this Friday, an individual armed
with a knife entered the Rambouillet (Yvelines) police station and
attacked a police officer, we learned from the public prosecutor’s
office and from a police source. The stabbed victim succumbed to his
injuries. She is a mother of two in her 40s. The individual, who was
shot twice by a police officer, also died.
The victim, an administrative officer at the police station, was
surprised in the airlock of the police station as she entered the
compound, according to a police source. Her attacker allegedly stabbed
her in the throat. The police at the scene then opened fire on the
The 36-year-old attacker is of Tunisian nationality. He arrived in
France in 2009, according to our information. The man is unknown to the
police and in a regular situation. The judicial police (PJ) of
Versailles was summoned. For the moment, the hypothesis of a terrorist
attack has not been confirmed. The prosecution went to the scene to
assess the situation. Jean Castex and Gérald Darmanin go on site
Gérald Darmanin, the Minister of the Interior, as well as the Prime
Minister, Jean Castex, are also going there. “They will provide support
to the victim’s colleagues and through them to the entire national
police” and “re-targeted” security forces, the government said in a
statement. Rambouillet is a town of around 26,000 inhabitants with a reputation
for being a calm town.
“The officials at this small police station known
for its tranquility are devastated,” one policeman told us.
India: Hindu priest says ‘no difference between Islam and Islamic radicalism,’ Muslims call for his beheading
Friday, April 23, 2021
Yati Narsinghanand Saraswati
Jihad Watch : Good thinking. If anything will show Yati Narsinghanand Saraswati the
vast difference between Islam and Islamic radicalism, it will be the
separation of his head from his body. Seriously, why isn’t the Vast
Majority of Peaceful Muslims rising up in defense of Yati Narsinghanand
Saraswati and denouncing death threats made against him?
“‘No difference between Islam and Islamic radicalism, its a danger to
all religions’: What Yati Narsinghanand said in a recent interview,” OpIndia, April 17, 2021:
Hindu priest Yati Narsinghanand Saraswat [sic] has been
facing the ire of Muslim hardliners for his remark on Prophet Mohammad.
Innumerable threats have been issued to his life. Despite this, in an interview with GoaChronicle, the Hindu priest did not shy away from presenting his honest views on Islam.
Speaking on the show Truth Matters, Swami Yati, elucidated
that Islam is synonymous with radicalism. There is nothing like soft
Islam, said the Dasna priest. “There is no difference between Islam and
Islamic radicalism. Islam is radical. There is no soft Islam. Islam is
about Mohammed’s direction. Muslims must obey and follow Mohammed’s
thoughts and teaching. Islam is a danger to all religions in this world.
There has been no reformation in Islam for over 1400 years it has
become more dangerous today”….
“That is why I am raising my voice so that I can protect our Hindu
women and children. Our women and children have a right to live and any
religion that thinks it can threaten our women and children, rape and
sell them, then I will not tolerate it and will continue to raise my
voice,” Yati Narsinghanand Saraswati added….
It’s been a while since Muslim hardliners have been protesting
against Dasna Devi Temple head priest Yati Narsinghanand Saraswati for
his remarks on Prophet Muhammad.
Endless calls for the beheading of the
priest have been made by several Muslim groups and even mainstream
political parties for his alleged ‘blasphemy’.
Germany: Muslim migrant murders man, police protect the perpetrator and harass the victim’s father
Marcus Hempel and Karsten Hempel
Jihad Watch : “A scandal,” says Hempel. Although he was the victim of a violent
crime as the father of a murdered child, he was “treated like a
perpetrator” – and the real perpetrator Sabri H. was “classified as a

victim’s father,” translated from “Polizei-Skandal: Syrer tötet
30-Jährigen – dann verfolgt Polizei Vater des Opfers,” by Göran
Schattauer, Focus, April 15, 2021 (thanks to Medforth):
In 2017, a young Syrian killed the son of Karsten Hempel
(56) in Saxony-Anhalt. After the perpetrator was sentenced to probation,
the police prosecuted the victim’s father for alleged plans for
revenge. According to FOCUS-Online research, the investigators used
illegal methods. Hempel calls for clarification.
The sexual predators whom we call school administrators by Mariam Mokhtar
Malaysiakini: COMMENT | The latest menstrual "period check" scandal
is nothing more than control of women and state-sanctioned sexual
harassment against them. It has nothing to do with religion or school
So, how much more of this sexual abuse will
the Malay community tolerate? How much more public humiliation and
mental torture can the Malay woman accept? Her shoulders may be broad,
her patience may be as good as any saint's, and her temper kept in
check, but perhaps, the time has come for her to be more proactive and more vocal about the abuses against her peers.
"period checks" being conducted on schoolgirls to see if they are
really menstruating has nothing to do with religion. In Islam, a
menstruating woman is not allowed to perform the ritual prayer, nor to
fast. The religion does not force checks
on people to see what is stopping them from praying. It does not force
you to pray if you do not want to. It does not encourage others to pry
into your affairs.
As Muslim Who Killed Jewish Woman Won’t Be Tried, Macron Promises to Change Law on Criminal Responsibility
Jihad Watch : The killer of Sarah Halimi will not be tried for murder. He’ll spend a
short time in a mental institution, treated for his cannabis use, that
supposedly led to a “psychotic episode” during which he killed Halimi,
and then be set free.
This decision by the Cour de Cassation, France’s
highest court of appeals, to not bring Kobili Traoré, the Muslim
murderer of Halimi, to trial because he had been under the influence of
marijuana when he beat her nearly to death and then threw her out of the
window of her Paris apartment, has provoked indignation and fury among
French Jews and many non-Jews.
According to Traoré, he had been troubled
by Ms. Halimi’s mezuzah, which “amplified the frantic outburst of
hate,” according to one psychiatric report.
But the Court noted in its
ruling that under French law, “a person is not criminally responsible if
suffering, at the time of the event, from psychic or neuropsychic
disturbance that has eliminated all discernment or control” over the
Car bomb at luxury hotel in Pakistan kills 4; Overseas Chinese eatery surveilling customers
Chinese surveillance appears in the West. A popular overseas Chinese restaurant is using security cameras to watch customers as they eat. The recorded footage then gets sent to Chinese authorities.
A Chinese state-run media is expanding its reach across the globe. But one group is putting a stop to its ambitions.
A new push for a harder stance against the Chinese Communist Party. It comes as a sweeping bill that’s just been approved by a U.S. Senate committee.
An 11-year-old girl in China is begging for help. She says authorities have forcibly destroyed her home.
And a car bomb at a hotel in Pakistan kills four people. It’s the same hotel where the Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan stayed.
The building is home to billions of Chinese investment dollars, as part of Beijing’s Belt and Road Initiative.
