Delegate Tells UN Confab On Religious Sensitivities That There Is ‘No Such Thing As Islamic Terrorism’

07/14/2013 Leave a comment

In the movie “The Usual Suspects”, Kevin Spacey’s character “Roger Kint” surmised that “the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.” Now another trick up his sleeve seeks to convince the world that Islamic terrorism isn’t real, either. Unfortunately, it appears that the politically correct West somehow believes that the Father of Lies may be telling the truth …

But it has nothing to do with Isam

Has nothing to do with Islam

By Casey Larsen, UN Watch – “GENEVA – Nations attacked the West for wrongly associating Islam with terrorism at a June 19-21 international conference in Geneva organized by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, part of the U.S.-Turkish led ‘Istanbul Process,’ an intended Western-Islamic framework for détente created by a 2011 UN Human Rights Council resolution to ‘combat intolerance, discrimination and incitement to hatred and/or violence on the basis of religion or belief.’ …

[A] topic of concern was the image globally projected of Islam and its frequent association with violence. Muslim panelists and member-state representatives insisted on the inherently peaceful character of their personal faith and state religion.

Slimane Chikh, Ambassador of the OIC’s UN mission in Geneva, stressed that Islam is a religion that accepts dissent.

In a debate on the implementation of Paragraph 5 (e) of Resolution 16/18, Ambassador Ömür Orhun, the Permanent Representative of Turkey to the OSCE, regretted use of the term ‘Islamic terrorism’ by the Western media following terrorist attacks like the 2005 London bombings. ‘There is no such thing as Islamic terrorism,’ he said.

US Ambassador Kozak responded that terrorists are often labeled as such in Western countries precisely because this is what they term themselves. Most ‘Islamic terrorists’ are self-proclaimed as such…

Regrettably, the conference turned a blind eye to terrorism committed by Islamist extremists even as it met. On June 19th, the conference’s opening day, The Times reported that 16 students had been shot dead in Nigeria by suspected Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram, whose name roughly translates as ‘Western education is sin.’ …

… He also expressed concern that the conference’s overall narrative was unhelpfully framed in terms of ‘the West versus the rest,’ with prime focus on the West’s failure to enact prohibitions on free speech; and this despite the fact that the countries where the most religious violence takes place tend to be those that have blasphemy laws in place.

Pakistan reacted indignantly, dismissing the Muslims in America that had been cited by the US delegation as having praised American tolerance as merely ‘rented Muslims’ – a term that Ambassador Kozak rejected.Read more.

Lying Wonders: ‘Angel Gabriel’ Miraculously Visits Pro-Muslim Brotherhood Supporters In Cairo

07/14/2013 6 comments

I guess that settles it. If you don’t support Mohammed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood then you’re not just “Allah’s” enemy. You’re “Gabriel’s” enemy, too …

2 Thessalonians 2:9-10, “The coming of the [lawless one] is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.”

Al Arabiya – “Protesters in Cairo’s Rabia al-Adawiya Square believe they have seen the light.

In a show of support for Egypt’s ousted president Mohammed Mursi, a preacher giving a sermon at the Square this week told the crowds of a miracle.

In the speech, broadcast on Egyptian satellite channels, the preacher said the Angel Gabriel had been spotted among the crowds at the pro-Mursi Square.

Sheikh Ahmad Abdel Hadi, a Muslim Brotherhood preacher, addressed protestors saying: ‘Some good men in Madina Al-Munawara (in Saudi Arabia) told me of a vision in which Gabriel entered Rabia al-Adawiya’s mosque to keep people praying stationed in their positions.’

He added that there was another vision in which there was a gathering attended by Prophet Mohammed, Mursi and others. In the vision, when it was time for prayers, the people asked the prophet to head the prayers, but the propher asked Mursi to lead instead.

Abdel Hadi also said that a ‘righteous man’ saw another vision in which ‘there are 50 camels, youths and children in a desert.’

‘After a while, the camels, youths and children got very thirsty. As they pleaded to God for help, the earth split and a stream appeared. The people drank and then they heard a voice saying: ‘Take care of President Mohamed Mursi’s camels.’’

Meanwhile, Egyptian Sheikh Mosaad Anwar drew a comparison between Mursi and Yussef, the prophet, and said they were similar considering that they both ruled after years of suffering and detention.

Sheikh Shawki Abdel Latif, a representative for the Ministry of Awqaf (Endowments), told Al Arabiya that ‘such dreams only aim to make what’s wrong become right, to put poison in honey and lie about the prophet, peace be upon him.’

As for the claims that Gabriel visited the mosque of Rabia al-Adawiya, Abdel Latif said that this too is a lie as Gabriel is an angel that only appears before the prophet.

‘Such statements attempt to exploit religion for political reasons and to grant legitimacy to ousted president Mursi,’ Abdel Latif said.” Read more.

Bangladesh: Islamist Victories Sweep Nationwide Municipal Elections

07/14/2013 Leave a comment

AsiaNews – “The latest municipal elections in Bangladesh marks a turning point in the country’s politics. The Awami League (AL) lost everywhere: in Sylhet, Barisal, Rajshahi, Khulna and Gazipur. Candidates running for the main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) won in every city where elections were held, taking control from the ruling secular-oriented AL.

Two factors explain THE shift. On the one hand, corruption is rampant within the Al; on the other, religion has been used for political ends. It is unclear though, which played the greater role.

For many commentators, the ruling party’s arrogance and thirst for power turned voters against it, beginning when it came to power by forcing out the caretaker government that is legally in power before elections.

Prime Minister and Awami League leader Sheikh Hasina has also been accused of corruption and of doing nothing about the heavy-handedness of her party’s youth league.

Meanwhile, the BNP was backed by the Jamaat-e-Islami, an Islamic opposition party. In recent months, the two parties have held numerous hartal (strikes) against rulings by local courts against members of the Islamist party involved in Bangladesh’s War of independence.

Despite the violence often associated with protests, the latter boosted Jamaat’s popularity.

In the campaign, the Islamist party accused the Awami League of atheism, and of being far from the interests of the population (Bangladesh is 89.9 per cent Muslim), allegations that found favour among the least educated. This favoured the BNP’s victory in the municipal poll.

Uncertainty now hovers over the upcoming general election, scheduled either for the end of this year or the start of next.” Source – AsiaNews.

Chicago Islamist Leader: ‘We Demand A State Ruled By The Koran… Britain, America, And The Entire West Go To Hell… The Caliphate Is Coming’

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “We’re constantly told that no Muslims, not one, in the West believe that Sharia and the caliphate should be extended to Western non-Muslims. We are ordered to believe this on pain of charges of ‘Islamophobia.’ Mohammed Malkawi must not have gotten the memo to keep mum about this sort of thing.

‘Founder of Hizb Al-Tahrir in Chicago: The Caliphate Is Coming, and Britain and America Can Go to Hell,’ from MEMRI, June 21:

Following are excerpts from a speech delivered by Professor Mohammed Malkawi, which aired on Al-Jazeera TV on June 21, 2013.Professor Mohammed Malkawi: After Islam had reached the peak of glory and the Muslims were masters of the world, there came a time when the infidels conspired against the Muslims, who were in a deep slumber. Britain conspired against them, along with Arab and Turkish collaborators and traitors, and ended the Islamic Caliphate and its glory.

Ever since the Caliphate was destroyed, the world has lost an exemplar of justice, a model for humanity in its entirety. Since then, the world has been held hostage by wolves, who do not respect the honor of a man or a believer. Two world wars cost the lives of over 70 million people, yet they accuse us of terrorism. They killed over 70 million people, and dropped atomic bombs on Japan, yet they level accusations against us.

The world languishes under every kind of oppression. You all know what capitalism has produced, what socialism has contributed and what nationalism has brought to the world. The nationalistic Nazism and Fascism led to two world wars. Capitalism today is destroying Africa in its entirety, colonializing Asia, and controlling the petroleum and gas of the Muslims.

Obama says to you, in Syria, Egypt, and elsewhere: I have chosen heresy as a religion for you. Will you accept heresy as your religion, oh Muslims? Say: “Allah Akbar.”

Crowd: Allah Akbar.

Professor Mohammed Malkawi: Say: “Allah Akbar.”

Crowd: Allah Akbar.

Professor Mohammed Malkawi: We demand a state ruled by the Koran.

Egypt: ‘Muslim Fundamentalists Are Killing Our Priests, Kidnapping Our Women And Burning Our Churches’

For peaceful purposes …

Coptic Nun Stabbed Outside Church In Alexandria By Muslim Attacker

Coptic Nun Stabbed Outside Church In Alexandria By Muslim Attacker

By ANGELLA JOHNSON, Mail Online – “The mob converging on a church on the outskirts of Cairo were armed only with sticks and stones.

But their frenzied attack on a lone, elderly Coptic priest was merciless.  Father Matthew Awad had refused to reveal the whereabouts of a Muslim woman who had converted to Christianity. For this offence, he was assaulted, suffered death threats and barely escaped with his life.

Today, he is in hiding. His entire family fear for their safety. Matthew’s son, shop owner Marco Awad, cannot set foot in public after he was arrested and tortured by Egyptian police officers sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Two of his three young children are with him in a safe house while his sister, wife and four month-old-son have fled Egypt to Britain and are now staying in Brighton.

Marco, who refused to be photographed because of the risk to his life, told The Mail on Sunday from a monastery in the desert: ‘Muslim fundamentalists are killing our priests, kidnapping our women and burning our churches. Since the 2011 revolution, Coptics like me have lived in fear of our lives. I’m being forced to live apart from my family because of my faith.’

The minority Christian group are reeling after a frightening rise in religiously-motivated attacks. Last Thursday, the decapitated body of church elder Magdy Lamay Habib, 59, was found in a graveyard, six days after he was kidnapped by extremists in northern Sanai.

And priest Father Mina Aboud Sharobeel, 39, was shot dead when Islamic gunmen opened fire as he drove home from a weekly grocery shop at a market in the town of El Arish, near the Gaza border.

Supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood are believed to have launched the attacks because they blame Coptic Orthodox Patriarch Tawadros II for backing the military’s removal of President Mohammed Morsi from power on July 3.

Christians are especially vulnerable in Sinai, where much of the population is armed and the local economy hinges on the smuggling of weapons, drugs and people.

Security officials believe a local branch of Jabhat al-Nusra, the feared Islamist group that is fighting against the Syrian government, may also be operating in Sinai. As are Jihadist groups, including affiliates of Al Qaeda.” Read more.

Sweden: Arctic Muslims Risk Health During Ramadan Sunrise To Sunset Fasting

07/14/2013 1 comment

If the world truly was flat like the Qur’an suggests then Muslims living north of the Arctic circle wouldn’t be having this confusing problem …

The Local – “Swedish Muslims north of the Arctic circle have long waited for and feared this summer. When the sun never sets, they have pondered how to observe Ramadan, when devout Muslims fast from sun up to sun down for a month.

‘Kiruna is as high up as you get in Sweden, the sun never sets during this month,’ Ali Melhem, 45, who has lived in Kiruna for 24 years told The Local. As the fasting month is set by the moon, Ramadan usually moves about 10 days forward in the calender each year, which means this is the first summer it has proved a 24-hour dilemma for Melhem.

‘When I first moved here, Ramadan was in the spring.’

In attendance for the day when Ramadan would run smack bang into the near three-month stretch of never-ending sun, Shia Muslim Melhem has not remained idle in doing his research.

‘My wife and I couldn’t make that choice, so we’ve consulted mullahs from Iraq to Iran. They say we can wait to fast until the autumn,’ he said, adding that some Sunni Muslims in Kiruna have chosen to break their fast when the sun sets over Mecca as a solution to their dilemma. Ramadan this years started on July 9th and should last until August 7th.

‘I did check if I could follow the sun times in a nearby Swedish town like Luleå or Umeå, but even fasting for 23 hours a day is a bit difficult,’ father-of-three Melhem said.

There is still no consensus, however, on how Muslims living in Scandinavia should observe Ramadan without jeopardizing their health, according to Omar Mustafa, president of the Islamic League in Sweden.

‘Several imams and organisations have different opinions. It is up to each individual to decide, but it is not meant that you should fast around the clock. Islam provides many options,’ Mustafa told the media.

Ramadan is an annual observance by Muslims who are obliged to fast from dawn to sunset for a month often in summer.” Read more.
