I can hear them now. “Allah forbid if those evil blood-sucking Jews, cursed infidel Christians and Satanic atheists ever say another single negative word against our peacefully violent and compassionately brutal religion!” …

"Anti-Blasphemy" Laws Will Apply To Islam Alone

“Anti-Blasphemy” Laws Will Apply To Islam Alone

Qur’an Sura 8:12b, “… terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.”

Qur’an Sura 3:85, “And whoever desires a religion other than Islam, it shall not be accepted from him, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers [in hell].”

By Murtaza Ali Shah, The News (Pakistan) – “BIRMINGHAM: Up to 25,000 British Pakistani men, women and children from across the UK gathered in Aston Park here to express their love for Hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him) and to call on the British government to introduce legislation that bars Islamophobes from insulting Islam under the garb of the freedom of speech.

The participants, who also travelled from several parts of European cities, were led in a peaceful and colourful mile-long march by Hazrat Peer Alauddin Siddiqui. This is the fourth consecutive gathering for the biggest Melaad-un-Nabi (PBUH) of British Pakistanis in Britain but this year it was dedicated to ‘protect the honour and legacy of Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH)’. Speakers included interfaith leaders from Christian, Hindu, Sikh, and Jewish religions and parliamentarians from Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrats. Sardar Attique Khan, former Azad Kashmir prime minister, was the chief guest of the rally.

Hazrat Peer Alauddin Siddiqui, who is a renowned Sufi scholar, told Geo News: ‘Thousands have come together to show peacefully to the western world that the production and promotion of a recent film insulting Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) has caused hurt to Muslims all over the world. We are a peaceful community and we will do everything to protect peace and respect for all on equal basis. It’s not fair that some people insult Islam everyday and preach hatred through their actions and words but the lack of legislation encourages such elements. We want to tell our government that we welcome debate and constructive criticism of our religion but insults are unacceptable and inflammatory language is contributing to the rise of extremism amongst youth in western countries where youth mistakenly believe that the West hates Islam and Muslims.’

He announced that a rally of tens of thousands of Muslims will be held soon in Hyde Park to profess loyalty to Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) as well as to condemn the crudely made ‘Innocence of Muslims’ movie which was recently released in the US and caused outrage in the Islamic world, including leading to a ban on Youtube in Pakistan.” Read more.

Flashback: Michigan: Islamic Leaders In Dearborn Plan To Exercise Their Right To Free Speech To Protest Against … Free Speech – “Islamic leaders in Dearborn, Mich. are holding a rally this Friday night to build momentum for the passage of laws that prohibit speech or expression that hurts ‘the religious feelings of Muslims.’… In other words, it appears one of the goals of the rally will be the eventual creation of blasphemy laws: laws that would reflect an international movement toward banning speech that is critical of Islam or Mohammed.” Read more.

UK: Three Muslim Men Sentenced To Prison For Preparing Acts Of Terrorism

For peaceful purposes …

Qur’an Sura 3:110, “Ye are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind …”

Qur’an Sura 3:110, “Ye are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind …”

BBC News – “Three British men, including an ex-police community support officer and a Muslim convert, have been jailed for preparing acts of terrorism.

Richard Dart was jailed for six years, Imran Mahmood received nine years and nine months and Jahangir Alom was jailed for four years and six months.

The London-based trio, who pleaded guilty in March, discussed targeting the town of Royal Wootton Bassett.

The judge said the three were ‘committed to acts of terrorism’.

They were arrested in the capital city weeks before the Olympic Games…

Dart, 30, of Broadway, Ealing, west London, and Mahmood, 22, from Dabbs Hill Lane, Northolt, west London, were both born in the UK. Alom, 26, of Abbey Road, Stratford, was born in Bangladesh but is a British citizen.

Mr Justice Simon told them they held ‘radical Islamist beliefs and have shown yourselves to be committed to acts of terrorism’.

Dart refused to stand when he was sentenced, and said: ‘I don’t wish to stand up, I believe ruling and judging is only for Allah.’

The judge said that they were all ‘committed fundamentalists’ who would have been prepared to kill.

Mahmood and Dart were both given extended sentences, meaning that they will serve two-thirds of their prison terms rather than half, and they will spend five years on licence.

He told Dart and Mahmood: ‘I’m satisfied to the required criminal standard that neither of you had ruled out an attack in the United Kingdom, and that you, Mahmood, were looking at arming yourself with a bomb.’

After the sentencing, the Metropolitan Police said the convictions followed a painstaking investigation by the Met’s counter-terrorism command and security services that had uncovered secret conversations about potential attacks in the UK and abroad.” Read more.

Canada Terror Suspect Ordered Deported In 1998, Arrested In 2004, But Released Two Days Later

America isn’t the only Western nation with immigration issues …

By SAM PAZZANO, Sun News – “TORONTO — A Toronto man accused of conspiring to bomb a Via train was ordered deported in 1998 and arrested on that order in 2004 but released two days later, QMI Agency has learned.

Raed Jaser was taken into custody on Aug. 23, 2004, and was working illegally and using numerous aliases, an Immigration and Refugee Board detention hearing was told.

Jaser was denied refugee status twice and ordered deported after the second failed attempt in 1998.

At the time, Jaser was neither a Canadian citizen nor a permanent resident, the hearing was told. Jaser, a Palestinian by descent and born in the United Arab Emirates but not a citizen there, was stateless.

While his other family members had abandoned their refugee claims after being refused the first time, Jaser pursued a second hearing.

Everyone in Jaser’s family except him were accepted under a special program, Deferred Removal Order Class (DROC), and later became Canadian citizens and owned a house in 2004, the hearing held at Toronto West Detention Centre was told.

Jaser had compiled a few criminal convictions, including fraud under $5,000, and was denied for that DROC program. He kept pursuing his refugee claim, but lost.” Read more.

Flashback: Canada: Muslim Political Scientist Tells Government To Close The Borders To Muslim Immigrants – “… The flow of immigration into Canada from around the world, and in particular the flow from Muslim countries, means a pouring in of numbers into a liberal society of people from cultures at best non-liberal. But we know through our studies and observations that the illiberal mix of cultures poses one of the greatest dilemmas and an unprecedented challenge to liberal societies, such as ours, when there is no demand placed on immigrants any longer to assimilate into the founding liberal values of the country to which they have immigrated to and, instead, by a misguided and thoroughly wrong-headed policy of multiculturalism encourage the opposite… I would like members to note I come before you as a practicing Muslim who knows out of experience from the inside how volatile, how disruptive, how violent, how misogynistic is the culture of Islam today and has been during my lifetime, and how greatly it threatens our liberal democracy …” Read more.

NASA: ‘Comet Of The Century’ To Blast Earth With Unusual Meteor Shower

04/25/2013 1 comment

By Dr. Tony Phillips, Clarksville Online – “Washington, D.C. – Anticipation is building as Comet ISON plunges into the inner solar system for a close encounter with the sun in November 2013. Blasted at point-blank range by solar radiation, the sungrazer will likely become one of the finest comets in many years.

When NASA’s Swift spacecraft observed the comet in January 2013, it was still near the orbit of Jupiter, but already very active. More than 112,000 pounds of dust were spewing from the comet’s nucleus every minute.

It turns out, some of that dust might end up on Earth.

Veteran meteor researcher Paul Wiegert of the University of Western Ontario has been using a computer to model the trajectory of dust ejected by Comet ISON, and his findings suggest that an unusual meteor shower could be in the offing.

‘For several days around January 12th, 2014, Earth will pass through a stream of fine-grained debris from Comet ISON,’ says Wiegert. ‘The resulting shower could have some interesting properties.

According to Wiegert’s computer models, the debris stream is populated with extremely tiny grains of dust, no more than a few microns wide, pushed toward Earth by the gentle radiation pressure of the sun. They will be hitting at a speed of 56 km/s or 125,000 mph. Because the particles are so small, Earth’s upper atmosphere will rapidly slow them to a stop.

‘Instead of burning up in a flash of light, they will drift gently down to the Earth below,’ he says.

Don’t expect to notice. The invisible rain of comet dust, if it occurs, would be very slow. It can take months or even years for fine dust to settle out of the high atmosphere.

While the dust is ‘up there,’ it could produce noctilucent clouds (NLCs).

NLCs are icy clouds that glow electric-blue as they float more than 80 km above Earth’s poles.” Read more.

A Kingdom Divided: Lebanese Sign Up For Jihad AGAINST Hezbollah, Parade Pro-Assad Syrian Through Streets With Noose Around Neck

04/25/2013 1 comment

Daniel 2:41, “Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay.”

By Elad Benari, INN – “Lebanese youth from the city of Saida, south of Beirut, began on Wednesday to sign up for ‘armed Jihad in Syria’, Al Arabiya reported.

The youth were responding to a call a day earlier by Sunni cleric Ahmad Assir, who called on Lebanese youth to fight the Hizbullah terrorist group.

Individuals in charge of enlisting the youth told Al Arabiya that ‘hundreds’ have signed up so far and that the number is expected to reach thousands.

On Tuesday, Sheikh Assir lashed out at Hizbullah for helping Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces fight the predominately Sunni opposition in the country.

Sheikh Assir had announced the formation of ‘Free Resistance Brigades’ to go fight Hizbullah in Syria.

In an interview with Al Arabiya, Assir said his call came in response to ‘Hizbullah’s continued role in the persecution of Sunni Muslims in Syria.’

He said it was a ‘a religious duty’ for his Sunni followers to join the fight against Hizbullah and the Syrian regime…

Reports in a Saudi daily last week indicated that over 1,000 Hizbullah members had entered Syria over a period of a few days via waterways in the Mediterranean Sea.

The daily quoted sources as having said that the regime in Damascus ‘is resorting to the aid of fighters from Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan, which implies that the Syrian recruits’ desire to fight alongside the regime is decreasing.’

Several months ago, Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah publicly offered to place his terrorists at Assad’s disposal.” Read more.

UK: Islamist Terror Group Planning ‘Another 9/11’ On British Soil Can’t Stop Laughing In Court

04/25/2013 1 comment

Maybe they were trying to laugh themselves to death for the cause of Allah …

“Do not laugh too much, for laughing deadens the heart.” – The Prophet Mohammed, Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2305; Ibn Maajah, 4193.

By Mark Duell, Mail Online – “A home-grown terror gang facing life in jail for plotting ‘another 9/11’ were today ordered to ‘stay quiet’ by a crown court judge as they laughed and joked in the dock while awaiting sentence.

The 11 men, all from Birmingham, were ordered to be silent by Mr Justice Henriques at Woolwich Crown Court in south-east London and did not appear fazed by their impending prison sentences.

The men, aged from 21 to 34, whom the court heard wanted to kill up to 2,000 Britons, are expected to be sentenced on Friday – but the hearing started today because there are so many defendants.

The ‘chief financier’ of the jihadist cell joked about stealing money from charities, the court heard.

Rahin Ahmed, 26, acted as fundraiser for the gang, who aimed to explode eight rucksack bombs and possibly other devices in crowded places in the UK.

Under the cover of legitimate street collections for Muslim Aid and local Islamic learning centre Madrasah-e Ashraful Uloom, he stole thousands of pounds to fund the planned attacks in 2011.

Prosecutor Brian Altman QC told the sentencing hearing that Ahmed had joked to one accomplice: ‘I’ve got so much Muslim Aid money I’m stealing, I have to bank it all,’ and then laughed…

Ahmed, from Moseley, admitted engaging in conduct in preparation for terrorist acts by collecting, investing and managing money for terrorist acts.

He also pleaded guilty to assisting others to travel to Pakistan for training in terrorism.

As part of the plot, the ringleaders sent four youngsters to Pakistan to train for terrorism in August 2011, the court heard.

Shahid Khan, 21, Khobaib Hussain, 21, Ishaaq Hussain, 21, and Naweed Ali, 25, all from the Sparkhill area, were sent in pairs from Birmingham International Airport…” Read more.

‘Deeply Disturbing’: Pentagon Blocks Access To Southern Baptist Convention Website Due To ‘Hostile Content’

04/25/2013 11 comments

Tip of the hat to otcaaron for the link …

By Todd Starnes, Fox News – “The U.S. Military has blocked access to the Southern Baptist Convention’s website on an unknown number of military bases because it contains ‘hostile content’ — just weeks after an Army briefing labeled Evangelical Christians and Roman Catholics as examples of religious extremism, Fox News has learned.

The Southern Baptist Convention is the nation’s largest Protestant denomination known for its support of the pro-life movement and its strong belief in traditional marriage.

Southern Baptist chaplains reported that had been blocked at military installations around the nation. The censorship was made public after an Army officer tried to log onto the denomination’s website and instead — received a warning message.

‘The site you have requested has been blocked by Team CONUS (C-TNOSC/RCERT-CONUS) due to hostile content,’ the message read.

Team CONUS protects the computer network of the Dept. of Defense. The SBC’s website was not blocked at the Pentagon.

It’s unclear what the ‘hostile content’ might have been. The SBC is pro-life and opposed to same-sex marriage.

‘So the Southern Baptist Convention is now considered hostile to the U.S. Army,’ the officer wrote in an email to the American Family Association.

Sing Oldham, spokesman for the SBC, told Fox News he had been in touch with the Dept. of Defense and had serious concerns.

‘This is deeply disturbing,’ he told Fox News. ‘While the Deputy Chief of Operation of the US Army has assured us this is a random event with no malicious intent, the Army must run this to the ground to assure that this is the case.’

However, Fox News has received reports from across the country of Southern Baptist chaplains unable to access the website.

‘If the government blocked any portion of the Web site for any purpose, that would be an unconscionable breach of trust with the American public,’ Oldham said. ‘The First Amendment exists to protect the church from governmental censorship of or infringement upon religious speech and the free exercise of religion.’

The Dept. of Defense confirmed to Fox News late Wednesday that the SBC website had been blocked — but not intentionally.

‘The Department of Defense is not intentionally blocking access to this site,’ said Lt. Col. Damien Pickart. ‘We are working diligently to investigate what might be causing access issues for some of our service members and to correct the situation as quickly as possible.’

The AFA sent out an action alert urging its members to contact the Pentagon and ask them to ‘stop the military’s alarming trend of hostility towards faith and religious freedom in our military.’

‘Most disturbing to him (the Army officer) was the fact that the military labeled his personal religious faith as ‘hostile’ to the U.S. Army,’ AFA spokesman Randy Sharp told Fox News.” Read more.

Flashback: US Military Groups Evangelical Christianity, Catholicism, Islamophobia As Forms Of ‘Religious Extremism’ Alongside Islamic Terrorism – “The U.S. Army listed Evangelical Christianity and Catholicism as examples of religious extremism along with Al Qaeda and Hamas during a briefing with an Army Reserve unit based in Pennsylvania, Fox News has learned. ‘We find this offensive to have Evangelical Christians and the Catholic Church to be listed among known terrorist groups,’ said Ron Crews, executive director of the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty. ‘It is dishonorable for any U.S. military entity to allow this type of wrongheaded characterization.’” Read more.
