Iran orders Christian children to study Qur’an or be expelled from school

There is constant low-level pressure upon non-Muslims in Iran, with an eye toward compelling them to convert to Islam out of sheer exhaustion over the difficulty of living as a non-Muslim. This is also one of the motivations behind the dhimmitude system: to make life as a non-Muslim so uncomfortable that one converts to Islam simply for some breathing room.

“Iran Threatens To Expel Christian Children From Schools,” by Stefan J. Bos, BosNewsLife, September 7, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

TEHRAN, IRAN (BosNewsLife)– Iran’s government has ordered children belonging to families of one of the country’s largest house church movements to study the Koran and Shi’a Islam teachings or face expulsion from school, a church official confirmed to BosNewsLife Thursday, September 7. The Church of Iran movement is also concerned about four jailed members saying one of them “was deported to a feared secret police facility” in the southern city of Shiraz.

These latest education measures and pressure on Christian prisoners are part of a government campaign against Bible believing Christians in the Islamic nation, according to Christians familiar with the situation. “Right now [Iranian President Hassan] Rouhani wants to prove that he is a good Muslim by persecuting Christians,” said Firouz Khandjani, a Church of Iran council member. “Most of the new Christians are former Muslims.”

The government-backed policy adopted by school authorities in Shiraz and the coastal city of Rasht deprives Christian children of primary and secondary education unless they agree to religious instruction that does not conform to their faith, he confirmed.

Parents and other believers might also face prison for openly confessing that Jesus is Lord, seen as blasphemy by strict Islamic authorities, BosNewsLife learned. The Church of Iran said it now fears mistreatment of active members Mohammad Roghangir, Bijan Haghighi, Eskandar Rezaie and Surush Saraie who are behind bars in Shiraz.

In 2013, Roghangir was sentenced to six years and Massoud Rezaie to five years imprisonment on what their friends viewed as “trumped-up charges” such as “action against the national security” and “propaganda against the system.”

NEW DETENTION

Saraie was “re-arrested” at his home in Shiraz after being released early from Adelabad Prison in November 2015 while Rezaie, was detained again in July, after being released temporarily from Adelabad Prison in December 2015, Christians said.

Both men were initially captured in October 2012, along with five other Christians, during a police raid on a prayer meeting, and found guilty of threatening national security and propaganda against the Islamic state. Saraie received a two-and-a-half year sentence in July 2013, later upheld on appeal, which he began serving in July 2014. Rezaie received a one year sentence, which started in July 2015.

One of them, Surush Saraie, was recently taken to Pelak 100, a notorious detention center run by the Intelligence Services (VEVAK), Khandjani explained. “It’s like the Gestapo [during World War Two].” While there, attempts were allegedly made to pressure him into making confessions, he said. “Usually they want to make us confess that we receive money from Britain or the United States to shake Islamic values,” Khandjani noted.

“The authorities are trying to eradicate Christianity, just as the Islamic State group, but smarter,” claimed Khandjani, who is himself in hiding….

Why are Muslim Leaders Silent on Gay Marriage? ‘The left may abandon us!’

They understand the war better than the kuffar. The left has been doing their dirty work for well over a decade now. Why agitate the agitators and knaves doing the heavy lifting in the spread of Islam and sharia? When the time comes, the left will be dealt with in much the same manner as the rest of the unbelievers.

NOT THE PRINCIPLE BUT THE SIDE: WHY MUSLIM LEADERS ARE QUIET ON GAY MARRIAGE

Muslim leaders shut up about gay marriage.

It’s all tribal, you see. It’s not about principle:

Ali Kadri, spokesman for the Islamic Council of Queensland and the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils, said his community was stuck with the choice of offending allies or siding with critics, and the result had been silence.

“Unfortunately, in the current climate, the right and conservative side has attacked Muslims as terrorists and extremists, and naturally the left side has been allies in defending us for a long period of time,” he said.

“We are afraid if we come out with our opinion then the left may abandon us for going against their view and we can’t be friendly with the conservatives because they have been bashing us for 15, 20 years every chance they get … and that includes some Christian sects as well.”

Church accused of being ‘anti-Muslim’ for not allowing Qur’an studies

Which mosques in Wales host Bible studies? Right, none. Which are accused of being “anti-Christian”? Right, none.

“Church denies being ‘anti-Muslim’ after group barred from using Caernarfon hall for Koran studies,” by Hywel Trewyn, Daily Post, September 2, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A Christian church has been accused of a “lack of unity” after it rejected a Muslim group’s bid to hold Koran studies in its hall.

A group of Muslims wanted to use the Feed My Lambs church hall – a former infant school – for “Koran and cultural studies”, and they had already used it twice.

But after initially being allowed to hire the space, their cheque for hiring it again was returned to them.

Today, the Church in Wales said the hall – which was part-funded by Heritage Lottery money – was available for “secular” activities.

But Kenny Khan, the councillor representing the Muslim group – said the decision was disappointing and seemed like a backwards step.

‘I was very clear that they were Muslims’

He added: “It was all explained clearly to the church that it was for religious and cultural classes.

“I was very clear that they were Muslims. There was no ambiguity.”

Three days after their first meeting, Cllr Khan received a phone call from Llanbeblig Rector, the Reverend Roger Donaldson who, although not party to the arrangement, said there had been “a misunderstanding” and that they couldn’t accept the cheque for £320, which was sent to Llanbeblig Parochial Church Council.

Mr Khan – who is not Muslim himself – added: “Christians and Muslims joined together in Bangor after the Manchester bombing.

“The church knew it was going to be used for cultural classes.

“Two men from the church came into the hall to collect the cheque and actually saw the congregation praying on their mats.

“These people pay local taxes. The hall has been Lottery-funded and is for the use of the community. They’ve accepted the cheque and something has happened.”

But Rev Donaldson told the Daily Post there had been a “misunderstanding”, and that it was initially thought the group were looking to use the hall for bible studies.

He said: “The understanding was they were going to hold ‘bible readings’.

“We are not against Islam; no way. Everybody has the right to worship as they please.

“We are not against colour or race. It was just not possible. There has been a breakdown in our public relations.”

In a further statement issued today by the Church in Wales, Reverend Donaldson said: “Feed My Lambs is used for Christian worship and is considered to be a place of worship….

Muslim Cleric bans a noted Muslim scientist for not being ‘a true Muslim’ in Hawaii?

I came across this strange story from Hawaii about a Muslim cleric warning his fellow Muslims to avoid any contact with another Muslim because he is not “a true Muslim.”

In a August 21, 2017 MeriNews.com article titled “In distant Hawaii an Arab cleric expels a Pakistani scientist” S.K. Saksena wrote:

This narrative would possibly not have been penned, if our family friend Dr [Saleem] Ahmed, a soft spoken, scholarly, devout Muslimhad not been expelled by the Arab cleric of Honolulu’s small mosque, funded by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The cleric also claims that Hawaii was not discovered by Captain Cook, but by Arabs. Much in the style of our own PN Oak who claims Taj Mahal to be of Hindu origin!

[ … ]

Not understanding the nuances of any religion, I would not venture to pass judgment. I leave it to Akbar S Ahmed, of Brookings Institution: ‘…Some Muslims have moved away from their own identity perhaps because of the controversy surrounding Islam. We came upon an example in Honolulu, that most pluralist of American cities. Hawaii has a small Muslim community of between 3,000 and 4,000, which I was asked to address after Friday prayers at the main mosque. Hakim Ouansafi, the Arab head of the mosque committee, and the president of the Muslim Association of Hawaii, welcomed us but warned us not to be in touch with Saleem Ahmed, someone we were anxious to meet. Hakim said irately that Saleem reputedly gave interviews in the media and talked to interfaith communities claiming to represent Islam, which he did not. Indeed, according to Hakim, Saleem was not even a true Muslim.’ [Emphasis added]

Read more.

The key phrase in this article by Mr. Saksena is, “Some Muslims have moved away from their own identity perhaps because of the controversy surrounding Islam.”

This moving away from Islam is apostasy and causes Fitna in the Muslim community (the Ummah) in Hawaii.

A key to understanding why some Muslims, like Hakim Ouansafi, expel (excommunicate if you will) a fellow Muslimhad is captured in one word: Fitnaphobia.

The Mayo Clinic defines phobia as, “[An] overwhelming and unreasonable fear of an object or situation that poses little real danger but provokes anxiety and avoidance.” Fitna describes “[F]orces that cause controversy, fragmentation, scandal, chaos, or discord within the Muslim community, disturbing social peace and order.”

Fitnaphobia is defined as:

An overwhelming and unreasonable fear of forces that cause controversy, fragmentation, scandal, chaos or discord within the Muslim community, thereby disturbing social peace and order within the Ummah (the Muslim community).

Fitnaphobia is based upon Quran versus 2: 191-193, which reads:

And kill them wherever you overtake them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you, and fitnah is worse than killing. And do not fight them at al-Masjid al- Haram until they fight you there. But if they fight you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers.

And if they cease, then indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

Fight them until there is no [more] fitnah and [until] worship is [acknowledged to be] for Allah . But if they cease, then there is to be no aggression except against the oppressors.

Fitnaphobia requires the killing, expelling and fighting disbelievers where ever they are found. Fitna (resistance) “is worse than killing.” A Fitnaphobe will kill because disturbing the peace and order of the Muslim community is worse than the slaughter of innocents, such as the 5,000 annual honor killings by Muslims of their family members.

Catholic school removes statues of Jesus and Mary to avoid offending Muslims

“The students attending San Domenico come from a variety of religious backgrounds besides Christianity: Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam.”

Hmm. Which of those four is likely to have been the only one objecting to the presence of these statues? And so here again we see the universal principle: in Muslim countries, one must change one’s behavior to suit Muslim sensibilities. And in non-Muslim countries, one must change one’s behavior to suit Muslim sensibilities.

“Leave them; they are blind guides. And if a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit.” (Matthew 15:14)

“San Anselmo’s San Domenico School creates stir by removing Catholic statues,” by Richard Halstead, Marin Independent Journal, August 24, 2017:

Removal of a number of statues and other smaller Catholic icons from the campus of San Domenico School in San Anselmo has raised concerns among some parents.

In an email to the school’s board of directors, Dominican Sisters of San Rafael and the head of school, Shannon Fitzpatrick objected to the removal of the statues and other steps the school has taken in an effort to make the school more inclusive.

“Articulating an inclusive foundation appears to mean letting go of San Domenico’s 167-year tradition as a Dominican Catholic school and being both afraid and ashamed to celebrate one’s heritage and beliefs,” wrote Fitzpatrick, whose 8-year-old son attends the school.

She added, “In our time here, the word ‘Catholic’ has been removed from the mission statement, sacraments were removed from the curriculum, the lower school curriculum was changed to world religions, the logo and colors were changed to be ‘less Catholic,’ and the uniform was changed to be less Catholic.”

Responding to follow-up questions Monday, Fitzpatrick wrote, “There are other families having the same concerns I do. Many parents feel if the school is heading in a different direction then the San Domenico community should have been notified before the signing of the enrollment for the following year.”

Cheryl Newell, who had four children graduate from San Domenico, said, “I am extremely disappointed in the school and the direction they’ve been going. This isn’t a new thing that they’ve been intentionally eroding their Catholic heritage. They’re trying to be something for everyone and they’re making no one happy,”

Kim Pipki, whose daughter left San Domenico two years ago after graduating from ninth grade, said some of the statues were also important to families who aren’t Catholic.

“The one main statue that has everyone fired up is the baby Jesus and Mary one,” Pipki said. “It was at the center of the primary school courtyard.”

Pipki said the school had a ceremony during which children would place a crown on the statue of Mary.

“It was less about God and more about passing on some traditions,” Pipki said. “People were shocked that the statues were pitched in the basement.”

Amy Skewes-Cox, who heads San Domenico School’s board of trustees, said the relocation and removal of some of the school’s 180 religious icons was “completely in compliance” with San Domenico’s new strategic plan, approved unanimously by the board of trustees and the Dominican Sisters of San Rafael last year. She said at least 18 icons remain, including a statue of St. Dominic at the center of the campus.

She noted that it was unfortunate the removal of the statues occurred at about the same time as the unrest in Charlottesville over the removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, and that the issues are “totally different” and have “absolutely no connection other than it is change, and people have a hard time with change.”…

One of the strategic plan’s stated goals is to “strengthen San Domenico’s identity as an independent school” and clearly articulate its “inclusive spiritual foundation.”

San Domenico was founded by the Dominican Sisters in 1850 as an independent, Catholic school — meaning that it is not owned or operated by a parish or religious order.

“San Domenico is both a Catholic school and an independent school,” said Head of School Cecily Stock, “but what we were finding after doing some research is that in the broader community we are known as being a Catholic school and are not necessarily known as an independent school. We want to make sure that prospective families are aware that we are an independent school.”

Of the 660 students who attend the K-12 school, 121 are boarding students and 98 of these are international students from British Columbia, Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Mexico, Korea, Thailand and Vietnam. The students attending San Domenico come from a variety of religious backgrounds besides Christianity: Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam….

Muslim MP tells victims of Muslim rape gangs to shut up for the ‘good of diversity’

A PROMINENT Labour MP and key ally of Jeremy Corbyn shared a social media message telling victims of sickening sex abuse to shut up for “the good of diversity.”

Labour MP, Naz Shah, retweeted and liked the post from “an account parodying left-wing writer Owen Jones which said: ‘Those abused girls in Rotherham and elsewhere just need to shut their mouths. For the good of diversity.’” After the firestorm began, she later deleted the retweet and unliked the post. Shah has been a “key figure” in trying to stifle reporting about the grooming gang sex scandal.

Equality and Human Rights Commission chief executive Rebecca Hilsenrath stated:

We need to keep the victims of these horrific crimes at the heart of the debate and always remember that diversity is not served by silence.

One would expect better from Labour MP Naz Shah, who suffered a traumatic childhood, including being victimized under oppressive sharia norms. She was forced into an abusive marriage at the tender age of 15. The Guardian once asked about Shah, given her history: “Who, then, could be better qualified than Shah to talk about integration?” Yet Shah is the same woman retweeting that the victims of Muslim rape gangs should shut their mouths “for the good of diversity.”

Many of those working in the diversity industry in the UK — and also at large in the West — have become accomplices in the Islamic supremacist victimization of innocent people. Islamic supremacism proclaims Muslim superiority over infidels and male superiority over women, and the term “Islamophobia” is wielded as a weapon to shut down justifiable scrutiny.

The ignoring of the crimes of Islamic supremacists has become commonplace as a matter of “tolerance.” That includes bigotry against Jews and the State of Israel:

Last year the Bradford West MP was suspended by Labour for anti-semitic online posts.

In one, she shared rants on Facebook calling for Israel to be uprooted and dumped in America. In another she likened Israeli policies to those of Hitler and also wrote: “The Jews are rallying.”

Western ill-informed (or weak) leaders are enabling these gross violations of Western principles. Until Western nations wake up and begin to holds their leaders accountable, they will continue at risk of their societies being engulfed in barbarity and chaos. 

“Corbyn ally shares message telling Rotherham sex abuse victims to be quiet ‘for the good of diversity’”, by Ben Lazarus, UK Sun, August 22, 2017:

A PROMINENT Labour MP and key ally of Jeremy Corbyn shared a social media message telling victims of sickening sex abuse to shut up for “the good of diversity.”

Naz Shah retweeted and liked a post on Twitter by an account parodying left-wing writer Owen Jones which said: “Those abused girls in Rotherham and elsewhere just need to shut their mouths. For the good of diversity.”

Her actions have reignited the furious row over Pakistani sex gangs which last week saw Labour MP Sarah Champion hounded out of Labour’s front benches for writing an article in The Sun addressing the issue.

Ms Shah, who later deleted the retweet and unliked the post, was a key figure in leading the furore against a column written by The Sun’s Trevor Kavanagh about the grooming sex scandal last week.

Equality and Human Rights Commission chief executive Rebecca Hilsenrath immediately condemned the Labour MP last night.

She said: “Ms Shah should know better.

“We need to keep the victims of these horrific crimes at the heart of the debate and always remember that diversity is not served by silence.”

The British-born Muslim MP, 43, who was once a key aide to Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell, accused Mr Kavanagh of using “Nazi-like terminology”.

She organised an open letter to The Sun signed by 107 MPs demanding action.

Ms Shah, who served on the influential House of Commons Home Affairs Committee, wrote The Sun’s piece was “irresponsible” and that it set “a dangerous precedent.”

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn praised her for the letter on his Facebook page.

Last year the Bradford West MP was suspended by Labour for anti-semitic online posts.

In one, she shared rants on Facebook calling for Israel to be uprooted and dumped in America. In another she likened Israeli policies to those of Hitler and also wrote: “The Jews are rallying.”

She later blamed her anti-semitism on “ignorance”.

Franciscan Monk Explains: ‘Islam Is Worse Evil Than Nazism’

Dateline, 2015-2017, Zagreb, Croatia: In order to understand where Father Daniel Maljur (Malyoor) with his statements in the article below (which shocked the Left in Croatia) is coming from we need to understand the volatile situation such as it existed for centuries on the porous eastern borders of Croatia. History tells us there was no tactic of terror that the Muslims did not exploit.

“As the first glow of dawn were appearing on the horizon of this cold winter day, you could hear the loud crackle and sparkle of the burning fires consuming the homes of the villagers who used to live in this section of the wide and treacherous border between this brave little European kingdom of Medieval Croatia and the new Bosnian province of the Turkish Empire.

All the houses were burning while the fleeing dogs barked wildly all around. The bearded horsemen who conducted this raid and caught the sleeping villagers by surprise at dawn were just evacuating the place after an orgy of plunder and slaughter, panting from excitement while on horseback with a saber and a spear in hand, wearing smelly cotton tunics covering their scrawny bodies. They just started escorting the oxen-hauled heavy wagon train moving the stolen property belonging to the villagers.

Then, one of these monsters galloped over to the head of the convoy of massive ox carts hauling away stolen goods still smeared with the blood of their slaughtered Christian owners, and shouted: Master, what shall we do with them?!?! – and pointed at the nearby animal farm pen in which there shuddered these barefoot children shivering in torn clothes while their old grandmothers who took them there hoping to avoid the wrath of Muslims were hugging these boys and girls, their young gasping eyes wide open and rolling in terror at the commotion around them.

SHIMDI HEPSINI OELDYR! (KILL THEM ALL NOW!) was the angry and coarse shouted response that everyone heard from the greasy snout of this big and hairy dude with a black turban on his square head sporting several special curved sabers dripping with blood (known as “scimitars” favored by the Turks who used to be the masters of quick hit-and-run steppe warfare). Right after screaming this order, as if to justify his sociopathic order, this swarthy and thick-set commander of the party of Muslim raiders murmured: “these are the Caour bastards anyway, what difference does it make to Allah?” (using a resonant ancient racial slur [Caour] employed by Muslims against the white people of the European races of Man). Then, as if to fulfill the order, the corral or pen in which the children of the liquidated village stood was overrun by horsemen of the raiding party.

The order was done. The squadron of Albanian horsemen galloped in, jumped the little fence and grounded up the Christian children inside who squirmed and shrieked under the heavy horseshoes of their muscular horses, blood, mud, torn hair, and crushed bone all mixed in. “Now they will never grow up to fight us!” blathered some of the gleeful horsemen. Those of the stomped children that were half-killed and still screaming were left to die in agony after hours of pain as the fires of their burning village were dying down.” – this is a veritable illustration based on many eyewitness accounts gathered over the centuries of border warfare between the Muslim Empire and the hapless subjects of the European kingdoms.

This began after the fall of Serbia and the conquest of Constantinople, in the 15th century. The new Turkish tactic of border terrorism was introduced with the twofold aim of satisfying the local allies of the Muslim Empire who would be enriched and rewarded by the state-sanctioned and even by the religion of Islam-sanctioned border skirmish warfare involving plunder, mayhem and pure destruction of property and lives of the Medieval Europeans, and also – of terrorizing the Christian states of Europe in order to discourage them from opposition.

After the Battle of Kosovo in 1389 (which was the most important and the most fateful single battle against the Turkish Muslims before they took over the lower third of eastern Europe) which was a battle that meant more than just the destruction of the Serbian kingdom for it opened the floodgates of armed and lustful Muslims onto Europe, putting immediate pressure on the new border states of Croatia with Dalmatia, Hungary and Romania. The way that the new Muslim empire (emboldened by the capture of the Christian headquarters of the old city of Constantinople in 1453) chose to act vis-a-vis Europe was to keep chipping away at the borders of the exposed kingdoms, create volatile border regions, expand the no-man’s zone between the farthest Muslim outpost (in western Bosnia, southern Hungary and southern Romania) and the nearest free Christian settlements in these countries. The hope was that the constant headache of having Turks on the border would push these states into submitting to the Muslim Empire and becoming its new provinces or vassals. At the same time, Istanbul pursued a diplomatic policy of ‘divide and conquer’ with the idea of facing the Europeans one-by-one, taking down each European country one at a time, left alone and without any allies, just like the fallen Serbia in 1389. The Ottoman Turkish policy was to prevent alliances between the European kingdoms so that Muslims would never face a united front against them in Europe.

Meanwhile, out in the Balkans, there were plenty of volunteers for the dirty work of the novel Muslim sport of border-raiding (which would save the Turks the cost of having to deploy the regular army and its crack troops for such unseemly activity). In fact, there was a coterie of provincial allies of the Turkish overlord (Sultan) in Istanbul (formerly known as Constantinople) among whom were all kinds of opportunistic plunderers and born ambush predators such as the vicious Albanian shepherds, wild Wallachian/Romanian converts to Islam, Bosnian Bogumils (which was a kind of Muslim sect in the Balkans before the Muslim Turks ever arrived) eager to prove their loyalty to the new masters, and various scary dogs of war known as the “Bashibozouks” (masters of irregular warfare in the wilderness) all gathered from every race and every gang known to the late Medieval times, among whom were sometimes even the irredeemable Christian renegades from the conquered lands of Europe. Whenever they could help it, the Turks enjoyed seeing Christians kill Christians for the sake of the Muslim interest, so they would often look to bribe or offer promises to disaffected Christians in the borderlands in order to dupe them into siding with the Turks against their fellow Europeans. The Sultan could order the cessation of border raids in order to incentivize the country to do the Turkish bidding. And if not – then the internally displaced refugees caused by Turkish raids would put pressure on the Christian leadership to listen to the Sultan.

Typically, on any given year in the 15th, 16th, 17th, and 18th century, the Turks (among whom there were sometimes even Kurds, Berbers, Moors, and Arabs) and their local Balkan allies would undertake ten major border invasion/raids a year into Croatia, Austria, Hungary and Romania using these cost-free irregular fighters deploying the tactic of destroying the attacked border areas and even the adjacent interior areas as far as the lower Austria! After Hungary fell to the Turks, Czechia, Slovakia, and Poland became the new targets. Typically, the Turks brought fire and brimstone to the Europeans; they would burn all the buildings in a settlement, slaughter all the people who were not economically viable (sometimes, if they had the time and expertise, impaling at the stakes a few) including the old and the helpless, and would take everyone else as slave (many enslaved or kidnapped pretty white Christian European women and boys died from merciless rapes in the camps of the Muslims on the Turkish side of the border). After all, Islam is the culture of rape.

An old and famous Croatian poet, Ivan Mazuranic [Mazhooranich], who was himself a witness to Turkish raids into the Croatian hinterland, once recorded in his celebrated verse the cold and merciless ruling Turkish logic at work [the word “rayah” is another Turkish slur, this one used to condescendingly describe a mindless mob of poor tax-paying people, usually Christian]:

“And what for the rayah? 

For them only the dry bread

Which they can moist with their tears.”

CROATIAN FRANCISCAN SHOCKS THE PUBLIC: ISLAM IS WORSE THAN NAZISM

The Vicar of St Nicholas Parish in Croatian city of Kostajnica, Franciscan monk Danijel Maljur, caused great sensation because in a short Youtube film named “Islam”  he explained why this religion of Islam is the greatest evil that mankind has ever suffered!

Maljur talks about Nazism, the Holocaust, Hitler, the atomic bomb in Japan, abortion. But, according to his interpretation, all this is nothing compared to Islam.

“Islam, who is entering our doorsteps through the back door, is without any doubt surpassing all the tragedies of mankind,” says Fr. Maljur, explaining further that the holy book of Islam, the Qur’an, as not an authentic work, and certainly not God’s revelation or the Word of God.

He also published his explanation on his public profile on Facebook [h[https://www.facebook.com/danijel.maljur]�He put in a link leading to the article which he calls ‘Islam in Statistics’ in which the author claims that Islam is a violent religion that destroys the world. This publication, Brother Maljur, accompanied with the text: “One of our bishops said yesterday that we all believe in the same God. Nope, not gonna happen … ‘.

On the same profile on September 18th, he stated that he was in Tovarnik in 2015 among the Muslim refugees. He claims that there are almost no old men, women and children among them, but there are so many prevailing young men in their prime of life averaging about 35 years of age.

“If you expect to see freedom-loving rebels [f[from Syria]you will have to pluck some journalistic footage because there is no such thing in reality. These are the faces of the kings or future rulers over us who have stormed into the European lands of their future slaves where they can lie in wait after having to suffer some temporary settlement hassles. Perhaps among them, there are also real refugees seeking only security in the first free country they can find, but I have not seen such a thing,” he continues.

The video that Danijel Maljur put on youtube is now marked as private and can not be opened, but on the Facebook page of the Defense of Faith and the web portal www.obranavjere.com you can read about the religious convictions of this young Franciscan friar.

Islam without any doubt surpasses all the above-mentioned tragedies of humanity,” says Brother Daniel after he listed all the major tragedies that history had experienced in mankind – from Genghis Khan’s conquests to Nazism. Furthermore, Fr. Daniel believes that Judaism and Christianity derive from the common roots of Abraham, while “the only thing that pulls Islam is dried weeds,” adding that Judaism and Christianity have nothing in common with either Allah or the Quran. According to him, Islam defies the true God, spites all the people, and opposes common sense. For Fr. Daniel, the Quran is an unbelievable book because it was created a long time after Muhammad’s death.

“Not only is the Quran the word of God not revealed, but its devilish inspiration is clear,” Brother Daniel denotes his arguments on the Qur’an. For him, Muhammad is the embodiment of everything bad. “It is alarming that Muhammad is still a model for all Muslims today,”

Furthermore, he believes that Islam is not a peaceful religion. “All those Muslims who are called radical are nothing but normal Muslims, such as they are according to Islamic standards and should be”. “According to some estimates, in the Islamic conquests since its founding 270 million people have been killed,” he expounds.

“There can be no dialogue with Islam,” Daniel says, adding that this is because the nature of Islam is against dialogue.

“We must know that human rights violations are at the core of this ideology,” says the Franciscan.

Thus, in an article entitled “Islam in Statistics,” he says “there are some statistics that show Islam as a violent religion that destroys the whole world.”

On the pages of the Croatian Franciscan Parish of Saints Cyril and Methodius, Fr. Danijel Maljur is described as a Franciscan with an unusual sense of humor, determined in the defense of the faith and ready for the challenges of modern society. Through his YouTube channel, he has been speaking to the general public for some time, and the reason, as he said in an interview on the above-mentioned page, is the fact that the Church has never been attacked in the past as it is being attacked today.

The Qur’an depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13). They are disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55); being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44); giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87); wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109); feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120); being arrogant about their being Allah’s beloved people (5:18); devouring people’s wealth by subterfuge (4:161); slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46); killing the prophets (2:61); being merciless and heartless (2:74); never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100); being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79); being cowardly (59:13-14); being miserly (4:53); being transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166); and more. They are under Allah’s curse (9:30), and Muslims should wage war against them and subjugate them under Islamic hegemony (9:29).

by Isaac Stanley-Becker and Alexandra Rojkov, Washington Post, August 10, 2017:

ORANIENBURG, Germany — He walked across the bleak expanse of what was once the Sachsenhausen concentration camp, toward the gas chamber that had been stocked with liquid Zyklon B, and posed the question that still strains the conscience of modern German society.

“How was it possible?” Osman Jamo asked.

Yet he also wondered why the site, where barbed wire and guard towers stood dark against the brilliant sunshine of a summer afternoon in this town north of Berlin, had been preserved at all.

“Maybe the Jews want to keep these places going so they can be seen as victims forever,” he said of Sachsenhausen, which was mainly used for political prisoners but by the beginning of 1945 held 11,100 Jews.

Jamo’s response is not the usual reaction toEurope’s [sic] postwar conversion of concentration camps into memorials and museums, places of atonement and civic education that ask visitors never to forget the Nazi past.

But this was not a typical tour — nor was Jamo a typical visitor. This was an effort to sensitize Muslim migrants to the dark history of the country that today offers them asylum. Two years ago, Jamo, 38, fled to Germany from Kobane, a Syrian city occupied by Islamic State militants in late 2014. His ambivalent response to the suffering of Jews at Sachsenhausen speaks to centuries-old religious strife as well as to the political conflict that has torn the Middle East since Israel’s founding after World War II.

At the same time, the refugee’s views reflect the moral quandaries posed by mass migration for a nation rebuilt after the Holocaust on a set of bedrock principles that includes responsibility to the Jewish people.

“There is an expectation that people coming to Germany will assume that sense of historical duty,” said Fatih Uenal, a German-Turkish political psychologist who is founding a vocational training program for refugees in Frankfurt. “That makes the higher incidence of anti-Semitic views among Muslims hard to talk about, and so we haven’t found a good way of engaging different sorts of people about the violence that went on here.”…

The spectacle of brutality on display at Sachsenhausen did not awe Jamo, a former photographer who had known daily violence in Syria. No matter the direct perpetrator of the violence Jamo had witnessed, the greatest cause of conflict in the region, he said, was Israel.

“Israeli aggression is the most basic problem,” he said….

The history that binds Germany to Israel is interpreted differently by many in the Arab world, Jamo said: “The Arabs think what Hitler did was a good thing, because he freed them from the Jews.”

He spoke bluntly before a video camera that followed him around the site of the former camp. His remarks will appear in a documentary film about how refugees in Germany understand the mass murder of Jews.

Jamo was one of only two refugees involved in R.future-TV who agreed to participate in the film project on Holocaust history. Germany’s treatment of Jews has been a difficult topic of debate, said Alkomi, a Christian whose family escaped to Germany from Syria when he was 9. At a meeting of the group last month, one man admitted, “In some ways, we think of the Jews just like the Nazis did.”…

“A lot of Muslim refugees,” said Josef Schuster, president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany “grew up in countries where hatred of Jews and of Israel is normal.” Many know little about the Holocaust, he said, “and some even admire Hitler.”…

In Iraq, anti-Semitic influences are pervasive, said Mohammed Kareem, the other refu­gee who had agreed to participate in the film. But Kareem, 34, who had been a police officer in Baghdad, spoke with his back to the camera, worried for his family still in Iraq if he were to be identified as “a friend of the Jews.”

“Everywhere — whether on the TV, from Imams or at school — we hear, ‘Jews are not good,’ and we don’t know any Jews to see them differently,” Kareem said. Since arriving in Germany in 2015, he has encountered several Jews who volunteer at a Berlin church that works with refugees. And now he is asking himself, “‘Why does my country say Jews are not good?’ Their armies — that’s different.”…

“If Germany paid reparations to Israel, then Americans should pay for what they did in Iraq,” Kareem said. By the end of the day, Jamo was firm on one point: “We are definitely still against the Zionists.”…

The Democrat Party: The New Anti-Semitism Party

Warren, Booker, Gillibrand — it’s not them — it’s the party. It’s not possible to be on the left today and support Israel. You have to support the “Palestinian” jihad, and turn a blind eye to the savage murder of innocent civilians, including families eating Shabbat dinner and sleeping in their beds. The Democrats: the New Evil Party.

“Elizabeth Warren Comes Out Against Senate’s Anti-BDS Bill,” by David Colon, Gothamist, August 8, 2017:

As debate continues to rage over the Israel Anti-Boycott Act, and one rumored 2020 presidential candidate distances herself from it, another prominent Democrat and rumored presidential candidate has come out against it as well. Senator Elizabeth Warren announced her opposition to the bill this week, calling it a violation of free speech.

Warren, who was never a sponsor of the bill, was asked about it by a constituent at a town hall last night. In response, she said that while she disagreed with BDS, she also said that “outlawing free speech-protected activity violates our basic constitution.”

The bill is an addition to the Export Act of 1979, which criminalized a company knowingly joining the Arab League boycott of Israel. This addition would update the bill to criminalize US companies from joining on to boycotts of US allies called for by intergovernmental organizations such as the United Nations or the European Union. Violations could be punishable by up to $1 million in fines and 20 years in prison.

Besides Warren, other Democratic Senators are feeling the heat regarding the bill as well. Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon was confronted by constituents this past weekend who questioned why he supported the bill. Wyden argues that the bill simply updates the previous 1979 law targeting the Arab League boycott of Israel, and that no one has been imprisoned for violating that.

While supporters of the law like Wyden and Chuck Schumer claim that the bill doesn’t infringe on free speech, a critic of the bill suggests that it still does, even if it doesn’t punish individuals participating in the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement….

“Democrats Who Want to Be President Back Away from Israel,”

by Jonathan S. Tobin, National Review, August 7, 2017:

The shift to the left by Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York demonstrates the power of a party base that is abandoning the Jewish state.

Both were once rock-solid supporters of Israel. But both have other priorities these days — they are thinking about running for president in 2020. Their problem is that no one who plans to compete in future Democratic primaries can ignore the growing power of their party’s left wing, which has grown increasingly hostile to Israel.

The influence of the far left is the only thing that might explain why Booker and Gillibrand are presenting themselves to their party’s base as less than fully supportive of Israel. The context for this development is a sea change in the Democratic party that has been taking shape over the past two decades. Where once the Democrats were the lockstep pro-Israel party and Republicans were divided about backing Israel, the parties’ positions are now reversed. Republicans today are nearly unanimous in their enthusiastic support for the Jewish state, and they oppose all measures that endanger its security. Now it is the Democrats who are split, with polls showing that those who identify with the party are far less likely to back Israel than Republicans are.

The left-wing grass roots of the Democratic party are increasingly hostile to Israel, something that became clear in 2012 when the delegates at the Democratic National Convention revolted against their leadership’s efforts to include in the party platform a recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The delegates booed loudly and rejected the measure in a voice vote while the convention chairman ignored the crowd and declared that the measure had passed. The spectacle was a benchmark moment.

Congressional Democrats also demonstrated the limits of their sympathy for Israel during the debate over the Iran nuclear deal. When President Obama declared that support for the agreement was a litmus test of party loyalty, few Democrats bucked him. Both Gillibrand and Booker supported the deal’s ratification by the backhanded method the administration employed rather than by gaining the support of two-thirds of the Senate – which the Constitution requires for treaties.

In 2016, Democrats growing split over Israel was evident in the Clinton and Sanders campaigns. The candidates disagreed over Israel’s right of self-defense and over support for Palestinian ambitions — one of the few areas where they differed substantively. The Clinton forces were able to quash any potential revolt over the issue, but the presence on the platform committee of Sanders delegates such as Representative Keith Ellison and Cornel West — prominent supporters of anti-Israel measures — was a harbinger of the growing animosity toward Israel….

Christian to be deported to Iran, told ‘it’s your problem you decided to become a Christian’

“An Iranian actress, who moved to Sweden after her conversion from Islam to Christianity” is being deported back to Iran.

Shame on Sweden. The country is already under siege from Islamic supremacists and jihadists because of its suicidal immigration policy. 80 percent of its police force wants to quit because of its dangerous work. Violent no go zones have expanded to include a mall and respectable business districts. The country is the rape capital of Europe. It has been deemed on the verge of civil war. But instead of deporting the real troublemakers, Sweden is turning its back on Aideen Strandsson, who possibly faces death for apostasy at the hands of Iranian regime if she is sent back.

Rather than receive from Swedish authorities the slightest sympathy and humanitarian assistance, Strandsson says she was told:

“It’s not our problem if you decided to become a Christian” even if the refusal of asylum results in rape, torture or death.

Aideen Strandsson

Oddly, Sweden has a reputation as “the world’s humanitarian conscience and a safe haven for refugees.” Sweden would apparently prefer to see its country continue to be decimated by the wrong kind of asylum seekers than extend a helping hand to this innocent Christian lady.

“Sweden Tells Iranian Christian Woman Fearing Deportation It’s Her ‘Problem She Decided to Become Christian’”,

by Anugrah Kumar , Christian Post, August 7, 2017:

An Iranian actress, who moved to Sweden after her conversion from Islam to Christianity following a vision of Jesus in her dream, is now facing deportation and has been told by Swedish authorities “it’s not our problem if you decided to become a Christian” even if the refusal of asylum results in rape, torture or death.

“They said to me it’s your personal life and it’s not our problem if you decided to become a Christian, and it’s your problem,” Christian Broadcasting Network quoted Aideen Strandsson as saying.

Strandsson traveled to Sweden in 2014 on a work visa, and has twice been denied asylum in that country. “It is really dangerous for me and I don’t know why immigration doesn’t believe that,” she said. “I’m really in danger.”

However, Swedish authorities do not seem to care. “Her case has been appealed and processed by the Migration Agency and thereafter by the Swedish courts, which have also decided that she cannot be granted asylum,” Swedish migration board official Ulrika Langels told CBN.

Swedish attorney Gabriel Donner pointed out, “The (Swedish) migration board information regarding Iranian prisons tell us that torture and rape is common and it is a breach of international law to subject any person to such treatment. Some of them are killed straight off, some of them succeed in going into hiding, some of them escape to another place, but you are putting them at risk.”

Strandsson’s Iranian passport has been taken away. Her first choice is to remain in Sweden, if possible, the actress said.

“I read the Bible and I understood what Jesus said about peace, about love, about kindness, and in my heart I became a Christian when I was in Iran,” she said earlier.

Sweden has otherwise been generous in granting asylum to others.

In April, a prominent pro-choice activist from El Salvador, Maria Teresa Rivera, became the first known person to be granted asylum for “abortion persecution” after Sweden agreed to provide her protection from “political persecution” in her country.

The Swedish Migration Agency officially granted Rivera and her 11-year-old son political asylum, agreeing it is “clear that this (political) persecution is rooted partly in her sex as female,” and “political opinions.”

Last year, Lund County administration in south Sweden said it was considering giving state-financed driving licenses and housing grants to those Swedish Islamic State fighters who had returned to the country after fighting for the terror group in Iraq and Syria, saying it would help them reintegrate into society.

Around 140 Swedish nationals had been identified as having returned to their home country after fighting for Islamic State, an al Qaeda offshoot also known as ISIS, ISIL or Daesh.

Severe persecution of Christians in Iran is common knowledge.

Iran is ranked eighth on Open Doors’ World Watch list of the world’s top 50 Christian-persecuting countries. The Islamic government in Iran persecutes Christians, particularly converts, on the belief that their religion is Western-influenced and a threat to the country’s Islamic identity.

Iranian authorities regularly raid and shut down house churches, imprisoning their leaders and torturing them. The government follows Sharia law, which calls for the death penalty for apostates……
