If the perfect “prophet” of Islam had his way, the only rock you’d be enjoying are the sounds of an adulterer’s skull-crushing rolling stones. No word on whether or not it could be accompanied by head-banging death metal …
Hadith Qudsi 19:5, ‘The Prophet said that Allah commanded him to destroy all the musical instruments, idols, crosses and all the trappings of ignorance.”
By Jane Bate and Kelly Cook, FrontPage Mag – “We can all point to things that brighten our day, but as diverse as those lists may be, music, of one sort or another, finds its way onto most people’s lists.
Alarmingly, any engagement in music is becoming illegal in some corners of the globe, and the ideology behind this snuffing out of a beautiful art form threatens to affect the rest of the world as well. We are referring to Islamic Sharia law.
Lest you think that these acts are confined to non-Western areas, the picture below shows one of a multitude of ‘Sharia Controlled Zone’ signs that have gone up in neighborhoods in Great Britain. The signs detail the sharia prohibitions against such vices as alcohol, drugs and smoking, gambling, porn and prostitution, and …. wait for it ….. music and concerts. Yes, this scourge is affecting our neighbors and allies ‘across the pond.’
As one views the spread of Sharia, it is vital to understand the supremacist nature of Islamic law:
Qur’an 8:39 ‘So fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief [non-Muslims]) and all submit to the religion of Allah alone (in the whole world).’
‘But,’ you may say, ‘there’s no Sharia law in the U.S.’ Though to date our music industry here in America appears not to have been impacted, we’re seeing many examples of cultural, financial and legal jihad, not to mention violent physical jihad such as we experienced with 9/11 and the Ft. Hood massacre.” Read more.

Now there is strong and open evidence of the Obama administration collaborating with Islamist activists to ensure the path toward sharia law is accelerated.” Read more.

It’s something we have not done before,’ said Imam M.A. Azeez of Salam Islamic Center, which organized the evening at the Crest… The imams of Sacramento’s two biggest mosques declared that music is not permissible according to the Prophet Muhammad, Allah’s messenger.” Read more.

Qur’an Sura 33:50a, “O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful unto thee thy wives unto whom thou hast paid their dowries, and those whom thy right hand possesseth of those whom Allah hath given thee as spoils of war…”
By Raymond Ibrahim, FrontPage Mag – “Yet another phenomenon with a long paper trail in Islamic history has just taken place, even as the Western ‘mainstream’ — little acquainted with true history or reality — dismisses it as an aberration. Asia News has the details:
Islamist rebels have kidnapped a group of nuns from the Greek Orthodox monastery of St Thecla (Mar Taqla) in Maaloula [an ancient Christian community where Christians were earlier forced to convert to Islam or die]… “Armed men burst in the monastery of St Thecla in Maaloula this afternoon [Dec. 2]. From there, they forcibly took 12 women religious,” Mgr Zenari said …. Neither the nuncio nor the Greek Orthodox Church know [the] reason behind the kidnapping.
The ‘reason behind the kidnapping’? Sexual abuse and rape certainly should not be discounted, as these have been the lot of thousands of women abducted by U.S.-sponsored ‘freedom fighters’ in Syria. Indeed, a new report issued by the National Reconciliation Commission in Syria states that some 37,000 women have been raped since the war started.
To keep the jihad in Syria alive, pro-war Islamic clerics have issued any number of fatwas, or Islamic rulings, permitting sexually-frustrated, female-deprived rebels to rape women. Most of these are based on the simple fact that Islam permits jihadis, based on the example of their prophet, to copulate with any captured woman—or, in the words of the Koran, ‘what your right hands possess‘ (see ‘The Jihad on Christian Women: Abduction, Rape, and Forced Conversion,’ pgs. 186-199 in Crucified Again for detailed information).
One cleric permitted the abduction and rape of any Syrian woman, provided she is not Sunni. Yet apparently because there are still not enough women for the jihadi hordes, many of whom are foreigners — one Christian child was recently raped by 15 men before being killed — Sunni Muslim women are also being targeted through sex jihad fatwas.
So would such jihadis and their clerics have any special respect for Christian nuns?
The fact is, raped nuns is a phenomenon that goes back centuries. According to Muslim historian Taqi al-Din al-Maqrizi (1364-1442) during his raids on Egypt, Caliph Marwan II Read more…
San Francisco State University Muslim Student Leader Posts Selfie With Knife: ‘I Want To Stab An Israeli Soldier’
For peaceful purposes …
Hadith, Tabari 7:97, “The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared, ‘Kill any Jew who falls under your power.’”
Hadith, Sahih Muslim, 41:6985, “The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews, when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him …”
By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “Note also that on his Tumblr page this jihadist psychopath also had links to ‘Hamas 101′ and ‘Why you should hate Israel.’ And he is still running around loose on the San Francisco State University campus, no doubt armed with the blade he loves so much. Can a student with politically correct opinions (pro-jihad terror, anti-Israel) possibly ever face discipline on a university campus these days?
‘Did SFSU Student Post Selfie with Knife: ‘I Want to Stab an Israeli Soldier,’’ by Lori Lowenthal Marcus for the Jewish Press, December 3 (thanks to all who sent this in):
The Simon Wiesenthal Center sent a warning to officials at San Francisco State University on Monday, Dec. 2, advising them of a potential threat to Jewish students there.The basis for the warning was the posting on the social media forum Tumblr which appears to be by the president of San Francisco State’s General Union of Palestine Students, Mohammad Hammad.
The photo shows Hammad with a knife, beneath which is the caption, “I seriously can not get over how much I love this blade. It is the sharpest thing I own and cuts through everything like butter and just holding it makes me want to stab an Israeli soldier.”
The AMCHA Initiative, the co-founder of which has been featured in The Jewish Press for her tireless work in exposing anti-Semitism on California campuses, first found the photo and threatening language. Earlier this month, AMCHA discovered that GUPS was involved in another event at SFSU at which students were encouraged to create art projects using a stencil bearing the image of a notorious terrorist and another stencil that stated “MY HEROES HAVE ALWAYS KILLED COLONIZERS.”
Both AMCHA and the Wiesenthal Center contacted SFSU President Leslie Wong over the past several days, warning her that statements such as the one allegedly issued by Hammad, especially given the other recent event in which GUPS was involved that also glorified killers of Jews, potentially constitute a threat to the university’s Jewish students….
Predictably, Wong has done nothing.” Source – Jihad Watch.

UK: Muslim Who Killed Lee Rigby Says ‘Allah’ Chose Victim, Sawed Neck To Remove Head Because That’s How Animals Are Killed In Islam
But worry not. Islam had absolutely nothing to do with it …
Qur’an Sura 8:55, “Surely the vilest of animals in Allah’s sight are those who disbelieve [non-Muslims] …”
Hadith, Bukhari 2977, “I have been made victorious with terror” – The “Prophet” Of Islam, Mohammed
Qur’an Sura 8:12b, “… terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.”
By Arthur Martin, Mail Online – “An Islamic extremist admitted trying to behead Fusilier Lee Rigby because ‘the most humane way to kill any creature is to cut the jugular’, a court heard yesterday.
Michael Adebolajo, 28, said he drove his car into Mr Rigby before he sawed his neck and then ‘attempted to remove his head’, the jury was told.
During a series of police interviews which were played to the Old Bailey yesterday, Adebolajo said he and his accomplice Michael Adebowale, 22, waited near Woolwich Barracks for a soldier to appear.
He said that they attacked the soldier as he was a ‘fair target’ and because they ‘wished to fulfil our promise to Allah’.
The defendant said they selected Mr Rigby simply because he was the first soldier to appear on the South London street where they were waiting on May 22. ‘It was almost as if Allah had chosen him,’ he said. When I thought about obeying Allah in the past I thought maybe it is possible to kill a man by driving into him.
‘When he crossed the road in front of me so casually it was almost as if I was not in control of myself. I accelerated, I hit him and I think I also crashed into a sign post…
‘The most humane way to kill any creature is to cut the jugular. This is what I believe. This is how we kill our animals in Islam. He may be my enemy but he is a man…so I struck at the neck and attempted to remove his head.’
Adebolajo was then asked if he had expected to die on the day of the attack. He replied: ‘To be killed on the battlefield is not something we shy away from and, in fact, this is something that Allah loves.’” Read more.

The Nigerian missionary, David Dina Mataware, with the Christian Missionary Foundation (CMF), was killed on November 13 by suspected Boko Haram militants in Ashigashia, a village which straddles the Nigeria-Cameroon border.
He was murdered on the same day as the kidnapping of a French priest, Father Georges Vandenbeusch, but the death was not reported by the media, a church leader told World Watch Monitor, even though both incidents happened in the same area.
The kidnap was claimed by Boko Haram ‘in an operation co-ordinated with Ansaru’, its spokesman told Agence France Presse. Ansaru is a Boko Haram splinter group that has attacked several Western and Nigerian targets. It claimed responsibility for the kidnap and murder of seven international construction workers earlier in 2013.
Mataware had worked with CMF since 2010. CMF is a Nigeria-based mission agency active in Cameroon since 1989. Its ministry is focused on the tribes of Mandara, Kanouri and Guemergou in the district of Mora in northern Cameroon.
‘An undetermined number of armed men crossed the border and entered into Cameroon at midnight. On their way back, they attacked the CMF compound. Unfortunately, one of the six missionaries had his throat cut. Five others managed to flee,’ said the church leader, who wished to remain nameless.
Cameroon is a secular country in Central Africa. Approximately 70 per cent of the population is at least nominally Christian and most of its population in the North are Muslims.
Over the weekend of November 15-17, a number of incidents took place alongside the porous border of Nigeria and Cameroon. Local sources contacted by World Watch Monitor say dozens of properties, including Ewy church in Tourou (in Cameroon) were attacked while at least one church was set ablaze and destroyed on the Nigerian side of Ashigashia.
At least four people were killed and many others wounded and transferred to health centres. Despite the reinforcement of security forces in the area, villagers fear continued attacks from Islamist militants from Nigeria.” Read more.

For peaceful purposes, mind you. In July of 2013, Muslim Brotherhood supporters promised to create a “new Taliban” in Egypt after the ousting of Mohammed Morsi. Now, any rational human being would have thought that promising to become like those who sheltered Osama Bin Laden and his terror network before, during and after the attacks of 9/11 — and keeping that promise — would have spurred the Obama Administration to begin dropping support for Egypt’s “new Taliban” by now. But in the conveniently twisted world of Barack Hussein Obama, however, the Taliban are suddenly no longer our enemies. Such a title, coveted by terrorists the world over, is instead being reserved for Evangelicals, Catholics and “Islamophobes” …
By TONY G. GABRIEL and MARIAM RIZK, The Associated Press – “Egyptian security forces firing tear gas and water cannons on Friday broke up anti-government demonstrations by Islamists defying a draconian new law restricting protests.
Authorities are seeking to put down unrest by both Islamists and secular activists as a government-appointed assembly tries to finish a final draft on an amended constitution by early next week. The draft has raised criticism from democracy advocates for increasing powers of the military and president.
Since a popularly backed military coup ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi in July, his supporters have been staging near-daily protests calling for his reinstatement. The rallies have often descended into street clashes with security forces or civilians.
To quash pro-Morsi rallies, which have persisted despite a heavy security crackdown, the military-backed government issued the law Sunday banning protests without a police permit. On Thursday, a student was killed when police put down a march by Islamists from Cairo University…
Islamist supporters of Morsi held their latest rallies around the country and in multiple parts of Cairo, most of them numbering in the hundreds. Ten people were wounded in clashes and 183 arrested, according to emergency services and the Interior Ministry…
Secular activists did not hold rallies Friday, aiming to avoid association with the Islamists. The activists oppose the Islamists, seeing them as equally undemocratic as the new government — and are wary of being tainted as pro-Brotherhood at a time when a large swath of the public remains eager to crush Islamists.
‘Friday is the Brotherhood’s day,’ Mohammed Adel, a leading member of the secular activist group April 6, told the AP. ‘Even if we had the same cause, we will not protest with them.’
Meanwhile, Muslim residents of a village in southern Minya province attacked Christian homes, burning 10 houses and wounding 15 Christians, including a 15 year-old girl thrown from the third floor of a building, according to Ezzat Ibrahim, an activist who monitors minority rights.” Read more.

Today Egypt is close as never before to the triumph of Islam at all the state levels, he said.” Read more.

Investor: ‘Eventually, The Whole World Is Going To Collapse’ Because Of The West’s ‘Staggering’ Debts
By “eventually” he believes around two years from now in 2015 or 2016 …
By Jason Howerton, The Blaze – “Famed investor Jim Rodgers is predicting a disastrous scenario for the global economy. ‘Eventually, the whole world is going to collapse,’ he told CBC in a recent interview.
Rodgers said ‘we in the West have staggering debts,’ noting that the United States is the ‘largest debtor nation in the history of the world.’
‘This is going to end badly,’ he warned.
Zero Hedge breaks down Rodgers’ thoughts on the ‘commodity super-cycle’ and increasing energy production through fracking:
However, the co-founder of Soros’ Quantum fund is convinced that the commodity super-cycle is far from over, but driven by supply constraints (and cost increases) as opposed to demand from higher growth. The following interview provides more color on his commodity view as he re-iterates his bullish stance on Ag (with sugar a focus) and Natural Gas (some harsh natural realities coming), warning “don’t get too excited about fracking,” when he talks energy products.
Rogers, in his inimitable way, sums up the state [of] euphoria that many markets find themselves in thus, “we are all floating around on a sea of artificial liquidity right now. This is not going to last.”
Rodgers went on to warn of the ‘next crisis,’ which he predicted may occur in 2015 or 2016.
‘The next correction when it comes, because the debt is so very high — you know, 2008 was worse than 2002 because the debt was so much higher. You wait until 2015 or 2016 when the next crisis hits… debt has gone through the roof, the next one’s gonna be really bad’
His advice: ‘Be prepared, be worried, and be careful.’” Watch video.
