Matthew 5:43-46a, “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward have you?”

Charisma News – “In a country that stresses religious freedom, it is often difficult for Americans to understand what it means to live and die for faith. Global Advance reports about Pastor Ibrahím, a man who knows firsthand the dangers of pursuing God.

Ibrahím lives in a community of radical Muslims. His country, unnamed for security reasons, is one of the ‘-stan’ nations, all of which are Islamic countries in which the persecution of Christians is not uncommon. The region, in general, is charged with violence.

When Ibrahím converted to Christianity, his Muslim friends decided it was necessary to kill him. It was their ‘sacred duty’ to stop the spread of Christianity, and this was the way to do it.

His friends informed him he could say goodbye to his wife before they stoned him. Ibrahím chose to keep the situation from his wife and told her he would be right back. He did not want to risk her life or alarm her.

The friends took the new Christian to the local dump. There they began beating him. One man picked up a large rock to complete the act of murder by hitting Ibrahím in the head. At this, Ibrahím launched aloud into prayer for his abusers and their children.

His prayer was not in vain.

The man holding the rock dropped it and yelled, ‘I Read more…

Sharia In Action In France: Journalist Faces Criminal Trial For Questioning Islam During Radio Debate

Don’t give Barack Hussein Obama any ideas, France …

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “‘The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam,’ said Barack Obama, and judging by how those who tell the truth about Islam and jihad are smeared, demonized and marginalized in the U.S. today, it won’t be much longer before trials of this kind come to the U.S. as well.

‘French journalist is prosecuted under 19th century press law for questioning Islam during a radio debate,’ by Peter Allen in the Daily Mail, October 9:

A French journalist is facing a criminal trial under the country’s strict press laws for remarks made during a radio debate about the influence of Islam.Ivan Rioufol, 61, believes the way he is being treated is an example of how writers are criminalised when the state is able to control the media.

He was summoned to court under strict press laws which date back to the 19th Century following a complaint from a pressure group called the Collective Against Islamophobia in France (CCIF).

‘In seeking to undermine liberty of expression, a sacred principle of our civilisation, the Collective against Islamophobia in France (CCIF) takes the risk of appearing like a menace to democracy,’ said Mr Rioufol.

‘This is essentially what I hope to be able to explain in court, because I will have to appear in a few months before the 17th Criminal Court in Paris.’

Mr Rioufol, who has written for Le Figaro newspaper for almost 28 years, made some allegedly defamatory remarks on November 15th 2012 during an RTL radio programme called ‘We Reshape the World.’

Mr Rioufol particularly objected to a CCIF poster campaign which showed pictures of predominantly bearded and veiled Muslims under the slogan ‘We are the Nation’.

The journalist said that this was against the spirit of France’s inclusive, secular republic – something which CCIF objected to.

Mr Rioufol said that France’s 1881 Press Law was being used to ‘penalise criticism, intimidate journalists, censor the media’ and even ‘to reintroduce the offence of blasphemy’.

The 1881 law was nominally meant to guarantee the ‘freedom of the press’ but in fact criminalised a range of journalistic behaviour.

So called ‘press offenses’ ranged from insulting the President of France, to defaming private citizens through comment.

Mr Rioufol said about the case’s first hearing: ‘The judge reminded me that he himself had no opportunity to verify the existence of the alleged offense, the procedure – Press Law 1881 – leading automatically to court, where the case will be considered on its merits.’

Mr Rioufol said the law was ‘easily manipulated’ by those who wanted to persecute journalists.

A spokesman for CCIF said it had a duty to challenge ‘Islamophobia’ and the press laws were a logical way of challenging journalism it objected to.

‘Mr Rioufol will in court seek to prove that his words were true – one of the defences against defamation.’

Canada: Toronto Probes Publicly-Funded Mosque Mural Promoting Holy War Against Non-Muslims

10/09/2013 1 comment

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” – Anonymous

In Canada, a Muslim cleric in Montreal promotes Sharia law amputations and death sentences for criminals and adulterers. The authorities do nothing. Another cleric in Brampton teaches that homosexuals should be stoned to death. The authorities do nothing. In Toronto, a Muslim school teaches children to hate Jews while an Islamic bookstore sells material that encourages wife-beatings and a “street-preaching” convert to Islam demands that all non-Muslim women wear burkas, head scarves and face veils, or risk being raped. And still, the authorities do nothing. Since governments all throughout the Western world have the backbone of a jellyfish, this mural will likely stay for “multicultural” purposes or because it didn’t break any law. Unfortunately, the real lesson that ends up being learned by the Muslim community is that political correctness and our lily-livered laws are allowing them to slowly, but surely, subdue civilized societies which, incidentally, is precisely what at least one Islamic bookstore in Scarborough teaches Muslims they must do: “destroy all States and Governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and programme of Islam regardless of the country or the Nation that rules it” because “Islam requires the earth – not just a portion – but the whole planet.” And while Islam slowly chips away at the fabric of civilized society, the authorities, well, they’ll continue to do absolutely nothing …

Revelation 17:1b, 15, “… the great harlot who sits on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth committed acts of immorality, and those who dwell on the earth were made drunk with the wine of her immorality … The waters which you saw where the harlot sits, are peoples and multitudes and nations … ” (NASB)

salim-ahmad-in-the-sunBy Terry Davidson, Toronto Sun – “The City of Toronto is investigating a controversial publicly-funded mural which critics say promotes a holy war against non-Muslims.

The city-funded piece of art on the wall of a building housing the Al-Tawakal mosque on Gerrard St. E., near Greenwood Ave., incorporates a verse from the Qur’an, which is written in Arabic and scrawled in modern, urban-style graffiti.

Critics charge it is a jihadist battle-cry against the West — an assertion disputed by the artist and at least two Toronto academics.

‘City staff are currently investigating the concerns raised about this mural,’ city spokesman Lynne Kyle said in an e-mail, adding ‘there was an extensive amount of community consultation that went into the design of the mural and there were no issues raised at that time.’

Taken from a chapter of the Muslim holy book, it is a verse that talks of Allah’s blessing and an Islamic victory of some kind being close at hand.

Salim Ahmad, a member of the Muslim Canadian Congress, has launched a petition calling on Toronto Mayor Rob Ford to remove the contentious image.

‘It’s an excerpt from the Qur’an, (and) it is used as a slogan when you’re fighting a jihad,’ he said.

In the petition, Ahmad claims the verse is used by both the Taliban and al-Qaida terrorist groups.

The Riverdale Immigrant Women’s Centre (RIWC), located just west of the mosque, applied for a grant and was awarded $17,000 in 2012 for mural projects under a city art program.

Laury Silvers, a part-time professor of Islamic studies at University of Toronto, said the mural’s message has been blown out of proportion.

The verse used in the mural, she added, is based on an ancient Muslim battle with those of polytheistic faith over land and property.” Read more.

Flashback: Canada: City Of Toronto Bows To Allah, Allows Muslim Cab Drivers The Freedom To Discriminate Against Certain Passengers – “Yes, if you have a dog, you’ll have difficulty getting a cab in the free city of Toronto. What will it be next? Will Muslim cab drivers be permitted to refuse someone who looks like or sounds like they could be Jewish? Or someone with an ‘offensive tattoo‘? Or someone who wears a cross? Or a woman with alluring eyes who might cause them to sin? …” Read more.
