So many converts to Islam get involved in jihad terror. Why? Because they read the Qur’an, and take its exhortations to wage war against unbelievers to heart. Yet authorities the world over have evinced no interest whatsoever in studying this phenomenon, and trying to prevent converts to Islam from becoming jihadis. “From estate agent to […]

“This is not just another assault…This is maybe representing a new, dark side of Windsor that we can’t let propagate.” Indeed. But it is propagating, and will continue to propagate. Justin Trudeau, stand up and take a bow. The Qur’an says “When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks” (47:4). Instead, Habibullah Ahmad left Sara […]
“Mr. Sharif was arrested in San Diego in July of 2011 and ordered deported to Somalia by a judge later that year. He was then released, failed to report for his deportation and could not be located by U.S. authorities after January, 2012. U.S. authorities have said that Mr. Sharif had no known criminal history […]
Of course. Islam justifies both. A hadith depicts Muhammad saying: “If a husband calls his wife to his bed [i.e. to have sexual relation] and she refuses and causes him to sleep in anger, the angels will curse her till morning” (Bukhari 4.54.460). Another hadith attributes this to Muhammad: “By him in Whose Hand lies […]
And the number is only going to continue to grow, thanks to Angela Merkel, destroyer of Germany, and all the good multiculturalists who reelected her. “Number of Violent Jihadists in Germany up 64 Per Cent to over 1,800,” by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, October 6, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace): The German Federal Agency for the […]
I received this most interesting email yesterday from Daniel Sexton, an American who was an eyewitness of the recent Barcelona jihad attack. Mr. Sexton is a Catholic, and he wrote an open letter to Cardinal Juan Jose Omella, Archbishop of Barcelona, lamenting Omella’s statements after the massacre, as well as the lack of any response […]
It’s very likely that those classmates were also adherents of the Religion of Peace. Jews have not had this kind of trouble in France since World War II, until this period of massive Muslim immigration. The Qur’an depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the […]
Another jihad attack? Maybe. Last June, the Islamic State published a poster depicting an SUV driving over a heap of skulls and bearing the legend “Run Over Them Without Mercy.” And the Islamic State issued this call in September 2014: So O muwahhid, do not let this battle pass you by wherever you may be. You must […]
The Christians should, of course, immediately comply. To do anything else would be disrespectful. It would be poking Muslims in the eye. It would harm the wonderful dialogue that Muslims and Christians are having in the West. Once Muslims have made it clear that their feelings would be hurt by Christians attending church, Christians must […]
In the wake of the Marseille jihadist attack Saturday, French politician Marine Le Pen has called for anti-terrorist legislation that directly combats Islamist ideology, which “wages war” on the West and seeks “our enslavement.” Le Pen also pointed out that “security is the first duty of state.” Unfortunately, this duty has been virtually abandoned in […]
