Muslim tribal council orders honor killing of 13-year-old girl

Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide. A manual of Islamic law certified as a reliable guide to Sunni orthodoxy by Al-Azhar, the most respected authority in Sunni Islam, says that “retaliation is obligatory against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right.” However, “not subject to retaliation” is “a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring.” (‘Umdat al-Salik o1.1-2). In other words, someone who kills his child incurs no legal penalty under Islamic law. In this case the victim was the murderer’s sister, a victim to the culture of violence and intimidation that such laws help create.

The Palestinian Authority gives pardons or suspended sentences for honor murders. Iraqi women have asked for tougher sentences for Islamic honor murderers, who get off lightly now. Syria in 2009 scrapped a law limiting the length of sentences for honor killings, but “the new law says a man can still benefit from extenuating circumstances in crimes of passion or honour ‘provided he serves a prison term of no less than two years in the case of killing.’” And in 2003 the Jordanian Parliament voted down on Islamic grounds a provision designed to stiffen penalties for honor killings. Al-Jazeera reported that “Islamists and conservatives said the laws violated religious traditions and would destroy families and values.”

Until the encouragement Islamic law gives to honor killing is acknowledged and confronted, more women will suffer.

“Relatives kill teenage girl for ‘honour’ on tribal jirga’s orders in Khyber Agency,” by Abdullah Malik, Dawn, June 30, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A teenage girl was reportedly murdered by her relatives allegedly on the orders of a tribal jirga in Khyber Agency on Friday, in what the local political administration said was a case of ‘honour’ killing.

The jirga had issued the orders to kill 13-year-old Naghma after it emerged that she had allegedly attempted to run away with two young men, an official said.

After she allegedly ran away with them, the boys abandoned Naghma during the journey “out of fear”. She was later taken into custody by the security forces and released on bail upon assurance by the girl’s relatives that they would not kill her, Assistant Political Agent Niaz Mohammad told local reporters.

However, despite their assurances, Naghma’s relatives shot her dead three days later inside a house in Landi Kotal tehsil and silently buried her body in a local graveyard….

Meanwhile, a journalist belonging to Khyber Agency claimed that the two boys who allegedly ran away with the girl are in the custody of the same jirga. He claimed that the boys’ relatives will make every effort to secure their freedom, but it is possible that they too will be killed on the jirga’s orders….

Hundreds of women are murdered every year in Pakistan, often by their own relatives, for going against their families’ wishes in matters of love and marriage.

The perpetrators of so-called honour killings often walk free because they can seek forgiveness for the crime from another family member.

The Aurat Foundation’s annual report of 2016 showed 7,852 cases of violence against women.

According to Saima Munir, who works for the Aurat Foundation, there has been a 70 per cent increase in honour killings in the past year.

Sudan defends in-humane record to avoid U.S. Sanctions

Bashir’s Sudan is a human rights proponent? This propaganda news release amounts to pure taqiyya-religiously sanctioned dissimilitude aimed at confusing the Kuffar, the unbelievers here in the U.S., and the West. Bashir’s objective is to convince the Trump Administration to lift the 20 year trade sanctions. What is that careworn English expression? Yeah, sure, and pigs fly.

Our colleagues, Gen.Abakar M. Abdallah of the Sudan United Movement (SUM) in Darfur , Deborah Martin and this writer have presented graphic and documented evidence of the Bashir regime’s Arab Coalition Plans and recruitment of foreign mujihadeen seeking to build a veritable jihad army of upwards of 150,000 in the Rapid Suport Force/Janjaweed miitias equipped with “technicals’, Toyota hilux pickup trucks with heavy machine guns, to complete the ethnic cleansing of the conflict zones in Darfur, Nuba Mountains, Blue Nile Regionand South Kordofan. The Arab Coalition Plan objective is to decimate and eject indigenous black Africans from the conflict zones, replacing them RSF/Janjaweed mujihadeen setlers and exploit the natural and agricultural resources with tens of billions of dollars of GCC and Arab league investments.

The actial figures of deaths and displacement range as high as 400,000 killed and 4 milion displaced in Darfur, alone.

Witness the action last week by the spineles UNSecurity Council drawng down its UNAMID forces that has been cowed and restricted by the Bashir regime from defending internally displaced person camps while the later endeavores to destroy them.

Then there is the increasing evidence of collusion of Qatar, Sudan and Iran in supplying terrorist groups in neighboring Chad, Central African Republic and Libya to further the ultimate goal of creating a Caliphate ruled from Khartoum under Shari’a ‘Holy’ Islamic Law.

The US embassy in Khartoum with its news release last Thursday has blunted the Bashir regime taqiyyah propaganda with arguments about continuing human rights violations. That adds to evidence against that the former Obama Administration’s misguided action partialy lifting the 20 year sanctions as it was going out of office with a 180 day look back that is up on July 12th.

Perhaps this US Embassy report on Khartoum on the Bashir regime’s horrific human rights record is a signal that the Trump Administration will not lift sanctions and, instead, might support regime sought by the confict zones resistance commanders in Sudan. One can only hope.

Sudan defends human rights record against US criticism

Sudan has insisted that it respected media and religious freedoms after the United States said it was “very concerned” about Khartoum’s human rights record.

Court: Sharia police may patrol streets

We have also seen Sharia vigilantes in Britain. In both Britain and Germany, authorities cracked down on them. But now a German court has allowed them to operate, and even if they’re ultimately stopped again, time is on their side. In a few years, they will be able to start up operations again, with non-Muslim authorities too weak and compromised to do anything to stop them.

“German court: Sharia police may patrol streets,” by Mordechai Sones, Arutz Sheva, June 29, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A court in Germany has authorized a group of self-appointed Sharia police to continue enforcing Islamic law in the city of Wuppertal. The law they were cleared of vioilating outlaws uniforms that are threatening, such as those of Hitler’s brownshirts.

The issue has been brewing ever since 2014, when German politicians reacted strongly to reports of young Salafists conducting nightly “Sharia police” patrols in the city, ordering people to stop various activities, according to the International Business Times.

The men were photographed wearing orange hi-visibility jackets emblazoned with the words “Sharia police” on the back.

They reportedly approached passersby near nightclubs and gambling houses to deter them from un-islamic activities such as drinking alcohol and gambling….

Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere earlier said that the civilians could not patrol the streets instead of German police.

“Sharia law is not tolerated on German soil,” de Maiziere told the German daily Bild.

“Nobody can take it upon themselves to abuse the good name of the German police,” he added….

Iraq declares end to Islamic State caliphate, Islamic State territory reduced by 60%

ISIS justifies sex slavery of infidel women by quoting the Qur’an

“Question 4: Is it permissible to have intercourse with a female captive? Allah the almighty said, ‘successful are the believers who guard their chastity, except from their wives or the captives and slaves, that their right hands posses for then they are free from blame (Koran 23:5-6). Note: the words ‘captives and slaves’ don’t exist in the original version of Quran.”

With that “note,” Morocco World News is trying to give the impression that the Islamic State is playing fast and loose with the Qur’an in justifying slavery. This is, unfortunately, not the case. Those whom “their right hands possess” are universally understood by Islamic exegetes to be referring to slaves; even Islamic apologetic sources that try to minimize the reality of slavery in Islam acknowledge that this term refers to slave women.

“ISIS’s “Science” of Slavery: How ISIS Justifies Enslavement of Yezidi Women with Islam,” by Johanna Higgs and Amal Ben Hadda, Morocco World News, June 26, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Slavery, possibly one of the worst human horrors occurring on this earth at this time. In 2014, ISIS invaded the small town of Sinjar in Northern Iraq and began to carry out what has now been described as genocide against the Yezidi people. Thousands of young women and girls were dragged off to be sold as sex slaves in markets.

Yezidi women who have returned from captivity have described a system of organized rape and sexual assault, sexual slavery and forced marriage. Guidelines for slavery have been established and they have repeatedly used a narrow and selective interpretation of the Quran to justify their barbarous acts of sexual violence.

According to Amnesty International, it is estimated that there are still as many as 3 800 girls being held as slaves by ISIS.

In a small makeshift IDP camp in the centre of Erbil Bese Qawal, Hana Xwededa and Fayza Haji, three Yezidi women who fled their homes in Sinjar when the violence with ISIS began to unfold. They had spent over a year living with another small group of Yezidi’s in a few ramshackle buildings with little certainty as to what the future would hold. As they sat in their small home they quietly described the horror that forced them to flee,

‘When the first assaults started, ISIS tried to stop us from fleeing. They wanted to kill the men and take the women. They tried to capture us but we managed to escape into the mountains. They burned our home, we came here with nothing,’ said Qawal as she leaned back against the wall. All three women sat somberly in the room as small children darted in and out.

‘They wanted to take the women as slaves. Our family is safe but we know some of the girls who were captured. They are selling girls as young as 8 or 9 years old in markets.’

When asked why they believed that ISIS was targeting the Yezidis, Qawal looked at the ground and replied quietly, ‘by god I don’t know. We are poor people.’

The Yezidi’s have been persecuted by the surrounding Muslim communities for many centuries. A minority in the region the Yezidis constitute only 1.5 percent of Iraq’s estimated population of 34 million. Of Kurdish descent, the Yezidis are generally considered to be a pre Islamic sect with an oral tradition as opposed to written scripture, though there are several ideas as to where the Yezidi culture originated.

For ISIS this makes them unbelievers of the worst kind, more so than Christians and Jews who are considered to have some limited protections according to their descriptions in Quran as ‘people of the book.’

It is for this reason, that ISIS has proclaimed their right to enslave Yezidi women.

ISIS considers their rules of enslavement as a ‘science that has been almost absent in modern Islamic jurisprudence,’ or what is known as fiqh. The word figh is an Arabic term meaning ‘full understanding’ and refers to the body of Islamic law extracted from detailed Islamic sources.

In a pamphlet released by ISIS, they highlight the need to practice this ‘science’ throughout the Islamic Caliphate, which they seek to establish throughout the world.

This pamphlet, through its questions and answers, uses interpretations of the Quran, as defined by various Sunni Islamic scholars to justify their acts of slavery. These scholars, using interpretations as defined by the exegesis, use the term ‘right hand possession’ as meaning ‘female slave’.

Some of the questions and answers of the pamphlet are as follows,

Question 3: Can all unbelieving women be taken captive?

There is no dispute among the scholars that it is permissible to take such women who are characterized by original unbelief such as the women from among People of the Book ie Jews and Christians.

Question 4: Is it permissible to have intercourse with a female captive?

Allah the almighty said, ‘successful are the believers who guard their chastity, except from their wives or the captives and slaves, that their right hands posses for then they are free from blame (Koran 23:5-6).

Note: the words “captives and slaves” don’t exist in the original version of Quran

Question 6: Is it permissible to sell a female captive?

It is permissible to buy, sell or give as a gift female captives and slaves for they are merely property.

The literal interpretation in Arabic of the term ‘right hand’ means any promise or commitment that must be observed and respected. So the term, ‘right hands possession’ semantically means the obligation to fulfill promises. This could be relevant to different contexts, particularly those regarding social commitments such as caring for orphans, marriage, and recently, this term was referred to in relation to surrogacy. In the Quran, both men and women are called to respect what their right hands possess.

However, when the word ‘possession’ is added, ISIS interprets this as female slave.

Through this traditional interpretation of Quran, ISIS has publically and officially sanctioned their use of slavery and rape. The ‘right hands possession,’ means for them that ‘religiously’ they can have sex with ‘unbelieving’ women, virgins and young girls, captured during war even if it is outside the institution of marriage. They consider this as a reward for their war efforts and is a motivator for soldiers to fight….

NJ: Muslim mayor demands resignation of Board of Ed member for “Islamophobic” remark

Sharia Northern Ireland: Three men arrested for “anti-Islamic material”

Yes, Islamic Terrorism Really Is Islamic

Ibn Warraq’s new book makes clear the irrefutable case. My latest in PJ Media:

It is a symptom of the denial and willful ignorance that blankets the present age that this book even had to be written, and that Ibn Warraq, a historian and social theorist of preeminent insight and wisdom, should have had to devote his considerable talents to it.

Nonetheless, we can be grateful that he has given us The Islam in Islamic Terrorism: The Importance of Beliefs, Ideas, and Ideology, as this book is breathtakingly comprehensive despite its quite manageable length, and is, quite simply, irrefutable. If there remains in the world anyone who holds that Islam is a Religion of Peace and yet has sufficient intellectual honesty and acumen to consider these arguments on their merits, this is the book to give.

First there is the necessary work of clearing away the nonsense. Ibn Warraq takes up each of the major excuses that are commonly given for Islamic jihad violence — that it is all about Israel, or all about U.S. foreign policy, or all about poverty and lack of opportunity — and shows why each does not and cannot sufficiently explain the phenomenon at hand.

Then he treads ground that has been much-tilled before: the exhortations to jihad violence in the Qur’an and Sunnah. But here, even the most well-informed reader will find much that is new, especially the detailed description of the Islamic concept of al-walaa wal baraa, commanding the right and forbidding the wrong, and how it leads to jihad attacks against unbelievers.

Also highly rewarding is Ibn Warraq’s examination of a subject that receives insufficient attention: the goals of jihad. Authorities in Europe and North America continue to treat jihad attacks as discrete criminal acts that have no necessary connection to any wider movement or imperative. Ibn Warraq shows here, with copious references to Islamic scholars ancient and modern, that jihad is a means of spreading Islam, and that the “greater jihad” — the spiritualized idea so beloved of Western apologists — actually has quite slim foundation in the Islamic sources, and is given scant attention throughout Islamic history by the religion’s foremost theologians.

The most rewarding sections of this amply rewarding book are Ibn Warraq’s surveys of jihad in theory and practice from the death of Muhammad up to the present day.

This includes a look at the Kharijites, who are often invoked by contemporary Islamic apologists as the precursors of modern terrorists and the archetypal Islamic heretics. Ibn Warraq, by contrast, demonstrates that “the fundamental principle for the Kharijites was that the Islamic community must be based on the Koran.” Those who claim the Kharijites were twisting and hijacking Islam say the same thing about contemporary jihadis, with just as little justification.

The historical survey that makes up the balance of the book is its most illuminating and valuable material. While many informed readers will know that the Qur’an exhorts jihad and that Muhammad preached and practiced it, few will be familiar with the history of jihad violence in Ninth and Tenth Century Baghdad, or with the Qadizadeli movement in 17th Century Constantinople, or with the career of Ibn Abd al-Wahhab (of Wahhabi fame) and his movement.

This is jihad doctrine as applied by Muslims throughout history. Readers will see immediately that Muslim obedience to the exhortations to jihad warfare in the Qur’an and Sunnah has been remarkably consistent in form since the beginnings of Islam.

Those who would peruse this material and then still insist that Ibn Warraq is “cherry picking” from both Islamic scripture and history, leaving out both the peaceful exhortations and the fabled eras of peace and tolerance, would be willfully and incurably blind. There are no such exhortations of any force, and no such eras, as any serious student of renowned al-Andalus will know.

The facts are, in the final analysis, quite simple: the Qur’an teaches jihad warfare. So does Muhammad. So do the mainstream Islamic theologians and jurists. And Muslims have consequently waged jihad warfare throughout history.

The Islam in Islamic Terrorism offers facts that ought to be taught in every high school and college history class; a saner age than ours would not find this book remotely controversial. It may indeed have mandated that it be put to exactly that kind of use in academic institutions….

New York Muslim tries to join the ISIS, says Qur’an justifies violence and beheadings

Where did Raishani get this “Islamophobic” idea? Can we get some learned imam such as Pope Francis to pay him a visit and explain to him how to read the Qur’an properly, so as to see that it rejects every form of violence?

“Home Health Care Aide Accused of Trying to Aid Terror Group,” by Larry Neumeister, Associated Press, June 22, 2017:

NEW YORK (AP) — A home health aide was charged with trying to aid the Islamic State group after he unwittingly planned his trip to Syria under the eye of law enforcement authorities, prosecutors said Thursday.

Saddam Mohamed Raishani, 30, of the Bronx, was arrested Wednesday night as he prepared to board a plane at Kennedy Airport to begin his travel, according to a release by U.S. Attorney Joon H. Kim….

Kim said Raishani wanted to join and train with the militant group after helping another man get there.

“Raishani allegedly acted on his own desire to wage violent jihad, planning to leave his family and life in New York City for the battlefields of the Middle East,” Kim said….

Authorities said Raishani’s plans were foiled in January after he unknowingly contacted a person who was a confidential source working at the direction of law enforcement. According to a criminal complaint, Raishani told the source that he had helped a friend shop for supplies to bring to the Islamic State group and had driven that person to the airport and contributed money before the friend left the United States….

“Raishani also indicated his desire to wage jihad and his belief that the Quran can be read to justify the violence, including beheadings,” according to the complaint.

Eventually, the source introduced Raishani to an undercover law enforcement officer who posed as someone who also wanted to fight for the Islamic State group, authorities said.

The complaint said Raishani told the undercover officer that he had been in contact with other Islamic State group supporters and no longer felt comfortable in the U.S….

Quebec Premier: ‘You cannot disconnect…terrorism from Islam in general’

“Haroun Bouazzi, co-president of the Association of Muslims and Arabs for a Secular Quebec, said..expecting the community to detect a lone wolf who buys a knife and travels to Michigan is asking a lot…’This person had an understanding of his faith that allowed him to kill people.’…Bouazzi said that instead of dwelling on the responsibility of Muslim leaders to prevent extremism, Couillard’s government should be tackling the exclusion of young Muslims that can lead to radicalization. ‘If somebody has to take responsibility for prevention, it’s the government,’ he said.”

Bouazzi does not explain how Ftouhi got “an understanding of his faith that allowed him to kill people.” Was it in a mosque in Quebec? Nor did he explain why the government has the responsibility to do something about this, but the Muslim community doesn’t. How can the Quebec government, a non-Muslim entity, change Muslims’ understanding of their faith?

Note that his declaration that “Couillard’s government should be tackling the exclusion of young Muslims that can lead to radicalization” is based on the assumption that has been discredited in numerous studies, that poverty and lack of opportunity leads to terrorism. It is essentially a veiled attempt at extortion, an attempt to compel the Quebec government to shower millions of dollars on the Muslim community, in the vain hope that it will eradicated jihad terrorism by doing so.

Couillard is to be commended for speaking an obvious truth that few dare to enunciate. Let’s hope he stands his ground.

Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard

“After Michigan attack, Quebec Premier calls on Muslim community to play role in preventing terrorism,” by Graeme Hamilton, National Post, June 22, 2017 (thanks to Michael):

MONTREAL – When Islamist terrorists strike in the West, it has become standard for political leaders to stress that the actions of a few should not tarnish an entire community. On Thursday, Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard chose a different approach.

Responding to the arrest of Amor Ftouhi of Montreal after a terror assault in Michigan, Couillard said the province’s Muslim community needs to do more to prevent terrorism.

“Unfortunately, you cannot disconnect this type of event – terrorism – from Islam in general,” Couillard said in Quebec City when asked if he was worried the attack would fuel anti-Muslim sentiment. He said he shares the position French President Emmanuel Macron expressed this week in a speech to Muslim community leaders.

“He told them, it’s also your responsibility to act on the theological front, to explain to your people that this (terrorism) is not part of the religion, that it is contrary to the teachings of the religion. There is a dual responsibility,” Couillard said….

Couillard said his government is “completely against” intolerance and discrimination, but there are fears among Quebec Muslims that the latest attack and the premier’s reaction will feed a backlash.

“With remarks like this, saying Islam cannot be disconnected from terrorism, Mr. Couillard is pouring oil on the fire,” said Eve Torres, co-ordinator of a group that works to integrate Muslim women into Quebec society. “He is premier, and not only is he saying Islam and terrorism are inseparable, he says the responsibility for terrorism falls also on the Muslim community. It endangers communities that are already stigmatized.”

Haroun Bouazzi, co-president of the Association of Muslims and Arabs for a Secular Quebec, said community members have for years been working to combat radicalization. When young Quebecers seeking to join the jihad are arrested, it is usually an imam or family member who has tipped off police, he said.

But expecting the community to detect a lone wolf who buys a knife and travels to Michigan is asking a lot, he said.

“This person had an understanding of his faith that allowed him to kill people. That is obviously the reality, and we cannot bring back the words of ‘Allahu akbar’ inside his mouth. He actually yelled that,” Bouazzi said.

“But to link this fact and the responsibility of Muslim communities to play a special role more than any normal citizen is actually stigmatizing.”

Couillard was inspired by a speech Macron gave before the French Council of the Muslim Faith Tuesday night at a meal to break the Ramadan fast.

“It is up to you, religious leaders, to fight toe to toe on theological and religious terrain, to expose the usurping of your values, the appropriation of your religion’s history, the negation of 15 centuries of interpretation work done by your scholars,” Macron said. He added, “The battle of thought and faith must be fought on the ground, especially among the younger generations.”

Last week, Statistics Canada published data showing a sharp increase in hate crimes against Muslims in Quebec — even before taking into account the January attack on a Quebec City mosque that killed six. Bouazzi and Torres were among a group of Muslim activists who called on the government to deliver promised programs to combat racism.

Bouazzi said that instead of dwelling on the responsibility of Muslim leaders to prevent extremism, Couillard’s government should be tackling the exclusion of young Muslims that can lead to radicalization. “If somebody has to take responsibility for prevention, it’s the government,” he said.

Jesuit scholar: ‘Islam is an open-ended declaration of war against non-Muslims’

Father Boulad said that “Islam is an open-ended declaration of war against non-Muslims” and those who carry out violent jihad are true Muslims who are applying exactly what their creed demands.

This well-known Jesuit, Henri Boulad, who is former Provincial of the Jesuits in Egypt and director of the Jesuit Cultural Center in Alexandria, has set himself apart from other Jesuit and Melkite leaders. He slammed Pope Francis (also a Jesuit) in a warning letter, saying that “on the pretext of openness, tolerance and Christian charity — the Catholic Church has fallen into the trap of the liberal left ideology which is destroying the West.” Yes.

Pope Francis has declared that Muslim terrorism does not exist, and went on a trip to Egypt following jihad massacres on two churches on Palm Sunday 2017, not to bring comfort to the innocent Christian flock, but to “mend ties” with Islamic leaders.

Another influential leader who resigned in May, Gregory III Laham, the Patriarch of the Melkite Greek Catholic Church, became notorious for calling the Melkite Greek Catholic Church the “Church of Islam.” Robert Spencer wrote about him:

He also claimed that Islamic jihad attacks against Middle Eastern Christians were a “Zionist conspiracy against Islam,” and exclaimed that “no one defends Islam like Arab Christians.”

That was certainly true of himself, but Gregory III Laham was not alone: the close relationship between some Middle Eastern Catholic bishops, including Melkites, to the “Palestinian” jihadis and other Muslims in the Middle East should be an embarrassment to the entire Catholic Church, but of course it isn’t. Melkite Archbishop Hilarion Capucci, who died on January 1, 2017, was such a stooge for the “Palestinians” that he was known as the “Chaplain of the PLO.”

Given such dreary realities, Henri Boulad represents an astonishing return to the truth: jihadists routinely quote from Islamic texts and have announced repeatedly that their war is a religious one against “disbelievers.”

Boulad also accepted Hungarian citizenship, in a recent affirmation of Hungarian leader Viktor Orban’s restrictive immigration policy of keeping out Muslim migrants to protect his country from jihad attacks and the skyrocketing crime that other European nations have been plagued with due to vast Muslim migration. Boulad stated that he “would like to…..fight for the future and for the Christian values on the side of Hungary and Viktor Orbán.”

“Jesuit Scholar: Islamic Extremists Are the True Muslims”, by Thomas D. Williams, Breitbart, June 16, 2017:

Islamic extremists who carry out acts of terror are simply applying what their faith requires of them, according to Jesuit Father Henri Boulad, an Islamic scholar of the Egyptian Greek Melkite rite.

In an interview with the National Catholic Register, Father Boulad said that “Islam is an open-ended declaration of war against non-Muslims” and those who carry out violent jihad are true Muslims who are applying exactly what their creed demands.

Those who fail to recognize the real threat posed by Islam are naïve and ignorant of history, he said, and unfortunately many in the Church fall into this category.

Citing a letter he wrote last August to Pope Francis, Father Boulad said that “on the pretext of openness, tolerance and Christian charity — the Catholic Church has fallen into the trap of the liberal left ideology which is destroying the West.”

“Anything that does not espouse this ideology is immediately stigmatized in the name of ‘political correctness,’” he said.

The priest went so far as to chastise Pope Francis himself—a fellow Jesuit—suggesting that he has fallen into this trap as well.

“Many think that a certain number of your positions are aligned with this ideology and that, from complacency, you go from concessions to concessions and compromises in compromises at the expense of the truth,” the priest wrote to Francis.

Christians in the West and in the East, he wrote the Pope, “are expecting something from you other than vague and harmless declarations that may obscure reality.”

“It is high time to emerge from a shameful and embarrassed silence in the face of this Islamism that attacks the West and the rest of the world. A systematically conciliatory attitude is interpreted by the majority of Muslims as a sign of fear and weakness,” he said.

“If Jesus said to us: Blessed are the peacemakers, he did not say to us: Blessed are the pacifists. Peace is peace at any cost, at any price. Such an attitude is a pure and simple betrayal of truth,” he said.

The priest also stated his belief that the West is in an ethical and moral debacle, and its defense of Islam is a denial of truth.

“By defending at all costs Islam and seeking to exonerate it from the horrors committed every day in its name, one ends up betraying the truth,” he wrote.

To back up his argument, Father Boulad enumerated a number of texts from the Koran that call on Muslims to employ violence in their conquest of the world for Allah.

The many passages he cited included: “Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them” (Koran 2:191), “Make war on the infidels living in your neighbourhood” (Koran 9:123), “When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them” (Koran 9:5), “Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam” (Koran 5:33), “Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies” (Koran 22:19), and “Terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an” Koran 8:12.

Father Boulad is not the first Jesuit scholar to criticize the West for its naivete in dealing with Islam. Last year, Georgetown scholar Father James V. Schall contended that decades of students have been given a “sanitized education” that systematically excludes an honest portrayal of the history and theology of Islam, which limits their ability to assess what is going on in the world.

In his essay titled “Realism and Islam,” Father Schall argued that Islam “is actually and potentially violent throughout its entire history” and the basic reason for this method is religious in nature: “obedience to the Law of Allah.”

Therefore, he wrote, the Western tendency to simply call Muslim violence “terrorism” is insulting to believing Muslims who “see themselves carrying out the will of Allah, even sometimes to their own death in doing so.” Rather than terrorism, he insists, Muslims see their violence as “a religious endeavor to conquer the world,” which they understand to be “an act of piety.”

Because of this gaping educational void, “most citizens are simply not equipped to face the forces now reappearing in the world,” he wrote.

“And while it may be politically incorrect to state these things, they need to be stated……

19-Year-Old Girl Who Reported Rape by Cousin Sentenced to Stoning

We can always count on sharia to be fair and just — especially to women. Mohammed was the first feminist, after all — so Sarsour et al would have us believe.

The rape victim’s father was a member of the sharia council that sentenced her to the stoning. The council decided that no action needed to be taken against the alleged rapist.

Here is one wretched girl at the blunt end of Islam’s feminism:

WOMAN, 19, IS SENTENCED TO DEATH BY STONING FOR ADULTERY AFTER SHE WAS ‘RAPED AT GUNPOINT BY HER COUSIN’ IN PAKISTAN

  • Woman, 19, claims she was raped in her family home at gunpoint by her cousin
  • She reported crime to tribal court, but it ruled she had intentionally seduced him
  • Court, which included alleged rapist’s father, then sentenced her to death

By Chris Pleasance for MailOnline, 30 May 2017:

A 19-year-old woman has been sentenced to death in Pakistan after she accused her cousin of raping her at gunpoint.

The woman said she was asleep at her family home in Rajanpur, in the country’s central Punjab province, when the attack happened.

She reported the crime to the local panchayat, a tribal court that operates outside the official justice system in remote areas of the country, but was told she had intentionally seduced her attacker.

The panchayat, which included the alleged rapist’s father, then found her guilty of adultery and declared her a Kari, or adulteress, the Express Tribune reports.

As a result the teen was sentenced to death by stoning or to be sold off, according to the Hindustan Times and Tribune.

The council decided no action needed to be taken against the alleged rapist.

The following day the woman and her father went to the police, who have now launched an official investigation.

An arrest warrant has now been issued for the members of the tribal council, and the woman taken to a refuge away from the village.

Women declared Kari are often executed by their own family in so-called honour killings to restore their reputation.

Another warrant has also been issued for the alleged rapist, local media reports.

The woman went to police near her home of Rajanpur, in Punjab, following the ruling. Officers have now issued arrest warrants for the elders and the alleged rapist, and she is in a refuge

New York City’s virtue is now amply signaled, and it is interesting that the City authorities decided to mount this campaign in the subways, where a Muslima named Yasmin Seweid falsely claimed that she had been brutalized by Trump supporters for wearing hijabs.

Also, where is New York City’s concern for Aqsa Parvez, whose Muslim father choked her to death with her hijab after she refused to wear it? Or Aqsa and Amina Muse Ali, a Christian woman in Somalia whom Muslims murdered because she wasn’t wearing a hijab? Or the 40 women who were murdered in Iraq in 2007 for not wearing the hijab; or Alya Al-Safar, whose Muslim cousin threatened to kill her and harm her family because she stopped wearing the hijab in Britain; or Amira Osman Hamid, who faced whipping in Sudan for refusing to wear the hijab; or the Egyptian girl, also named Amira, who committed suicide after being brutalized for her family for refusing to wear the hijab; or the Muslim and non-Muslim teachers at the Islamic College of South Australia who were told that they had to wear the hijab or be fired; or the women in Chechnya whom police shot with paintballs because they weren’t wearing hijab; or the women also in Chechnya who were threatened by men with automatic rifles for not wearing hijab; or the elementary school teachers in Tunisia who were threatened with death for not wearing hijab; or the Syrian schoolgirls who were forbidden to go to school unless they wore hijab; or the women in Gaza whom Hamas has forced to wear hijab; or the women in Iran who protested against the regime by daring to take off their legally-required hijab; or the women in London whom Muslim thugs threatened to murder if they didn’t wear hijab; or the anonymous young Muslim woman who doffed her hijab outside her home and started living a double life in fear of her parents; or the fifteen girls in Saudi Arabia who were killed when the religious police wouldn’t let them leave their burning school building because they had taken off their hijabs in their all-female environment; or all the other women and girls who have been killed or threatened, or who live in fear for daring not to wear the hijab?

Who is standing in solidarity with them? Those who taunt or brutalize hijab-wearing women are louts and creeps, and should be prosecuted if they commit any acts of violence. At the same time, the women who don’t wear hijab in Muslim countries are far more likely to be victims of violence than hijabis in the West. Who speaks for them? Mayor de Blasio?
