Murderous Muslim Terrorists are not Bad but Mad like Daniel McNaghten

Nov 9, 2019 by

by Niall McCrea, Rebel Priest: ‘I am not mad,’ shouts the failed suicide bomber in court, contradicting psychiatric opinion. For him, scriptural fiat cannot be overruled by secular authorities: if the holy Koran instructs slaying of the infidels, there is no mental illness, immorality or crime in putting those words into action. The vast majority of Muslims, no doubt, would recoil at any interpretation of their faith as inherently violent. In polite society, Islam is promoted as the Religion...

Baghdadi’s death is a huge blow to Islamic State, but it won’t guarantee a safer world

Oct 30, 2019 by

by Greg Barton, The Conversation: “A very bad man” has been killed and “the world is now a much safer place”. The sentiment behind US President Donald Trump’s announcement of the death of Islamic State (IS) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is difficult to argue with. Baghdadi was certainly a very bad man. And under his decade-long leadership of the Islamic State (IS) movement, many thousands of people in the Middle East and around the world suffered terrible brutality or death. Common sense would...

France: The Headscarf Debate is Not about Headscarves

Oct 26, 2019 by

by Alain Destexhe, Gatestone Institute: […] The hijab is, of course, just a symptom of a deeper problem: many perceive it as the symbol of an invasion by an outside culture into the public sphere. In Europe today, there are more and more requests to build new mosques, and a growing number of women, particularly young ones, who now wear the hijab on the streets, refuse to shake hands with males. The progressive Islamization of society has also had consequences in schools. Some girls do...

BBC censors Sikh history in case it offends Muslims

Oct 7, 2019 by

by Archbishop Cranmer: Lord (Indarjit) Singh has been almost as permanent a fixture on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Thought for the Day’ as the Bishop of Leeds, Nick Baines. The BBC likes a certain sort of thought for the day, delivered by a certain sort of thinking person. If you hold a certain establishment status (like bishop or peer [or, preferably, both]) and they like the way you think, you can easily become a permanent fixture, featuring at least fortnightly, if not weekly, and pocketing £200 a time....

UK: The Push to End Free Speech

Sep 17, 2019 by

by Judith Bergman, Gatestone Institute: In April 2018, Britain’s All-Party Parliamentary Group on British Muslims began work on establishing a “working definition of Islamophobia that can be widely accepted by Muslims, political parties and the government”. In December 2018, the group concluded its work with a “Report on the inquiry into a working definition of Islamophobia / anti-Muslim hatred.” The report defines “Islamophobia” as a form of racism,...

Koran read at Westminster Abbey as Royal Cathedral bows to Islam

Sep 16, 2019 by

by Jules Gomes, Rebel Priest: Britain’s royal cathedral—the nation’s coronation church since 1066—and the final resting place of 17 monarchs approved a Koranic reading from its lectern at a memorial service last Tuesday. Husein Kavazović, the Grand Mufti of Bosnia and Herzegovina, read from Koran 16: 90-97 at a Service of Thanksgiving for the life of Paddy Ashdown—a British politician and former diplomat who served as leader of the Liberal Democrats. Ashdown, who died on 22 December 2018,...
