Drummer From Rock Band “Scorpions” Jailed In Dubai For “Insulting Islam”

04/29/2014 4 comments

For peaceful purposes. Where are those winds of change many claimed were blowing across the Middle East during the Arab Spring? Compared to what the Qur’an says his punishment could be, he’s getting off relatively easy …

Qur’an Sura 33:57, 61, “Lo! those who malign Allah and His messenger, Allah hath cursed them in this world and the Hereafter, and hath prepared for them the doom of the disdained … Accursed, they will be seized wherever found and slain with a (fierce) slaughter.”

Associated Press – “Newspapers in the United Arab Emirates are reporting that the American drummer for the rock band Scorpions has been sentenced to one month in jail after being convicted of offensive behavior in Dubai.

The government-backed National newspaper reported Tuesday that James Kottak was convicted of insulting Islam, raising his middle finger and being under the influence of alcohol while in transit at Dubai airport.

The Gulf News daily says he was arrested April 3 en route from Russia to Bahrain, where the German band was scheduled to perform at a Formula One race. Kottak was a no-show at the April 5 concert.

The newspapers say Kottak admitted to drinking but denied other charges.

The Scorpions’ manager didn’t respond to requests for comment. Kottak’s local lawyer couldn’t immediately be reached.” Source – My Fox NY

Canada: Islamic Charity Classified As Terrorist Group, Aided Hamas For Years

04/29/2014 Leave a comment

Now that Fatah and Hamas have unified, what does that make every organization and Western government who actively supports the Palestinian Authority? …

Hamas Video: There Is No Better Blood Than The Blood Of Jews

Hamas Video: There Is No Better Blood Than The Blood Of Jews

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “Many Islamic charities in the United States and around the world have been shut down for funding terrorism, including what was once the largest Islamic charity in the United States, the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF), as well as the Global Relief Foundation (GRF), the Benevolence International Foundation (BIF), and many others. This is because the charitable giving required of Muslims, zakat, can be given to fund jihad, a meritorious activity according to Islamic law. And the ‘Palestinian’ jihad has a special appeal, as it is directed against the Jews, whom the Qur’an designates as the worst enemies of the Muslims (5:82).

‘Aid group accused of Hamas ties put on ‘terrorist’ list, raided,’ The Canadian Press, April 29, 2014 (thanks to Kenneth):

A Canadian organization that provided humanitarian aid to Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza has been formally branded a terrorist group before the start of a court battle over the revocation of its charitable status.

The move came as the RCMP confirmed it had raided locations in Ontario and Quebec as part of a terrorism-financing investigation.

In a letter to the International Relief Fund for the Afflicted and Needy, the RCMP said the federal government had added the group to a list of “terrorist entities” as of April 24.

“IRFAN is now classified as a ‘terrorist group’ under Canadian law,” the letter from Supt. Stephane Bonin states.

“As a consequence, any property or asset belonging to IRFAN is now frozen.”

The letter offers no reason for the listing decision but Canada Revenue Agency has said the organization supported Hamas, itself branded as a terrorist organization.

A statement Tuesday from Public Affairs Minister Steven Blaney noted CRA’s contention — which was to be argued in court next week — that IRFAN provided aid to groups run by officials of, or who supported Hamas.

IRFAN, based in Mississauga, Ont., sent about $14.6 million in resources to “various organizations associated with Hamas” between 2005 and 2009, the statement said.
Charitable status revoked

The non-profit IRFAN was due in Federal Court of Appeal on May 6 to contest a 2011 CRA decision to revoke its charitable status because of its alleged ties to Hamas and failure to keep proper records.

No one for IRFAN was available to comment, but a lawyer speaking for the group condemned the listing as an attack on humanitarian support for Palestinians.

Uzbekistan: Christians Cannot Be Buried In State-Owned Cemeteries

04/29/2014 Leave a comment

All of us who die in Christ will one day be resurrected to everlasting life regardless of where our bodies are laid to rest. Those who reject Him, however, will be resurrected to something else entirely, regardless of how “pure” they considered themselves to be

Daniel 12:2, “Many of those who sleep in the dust of the ground will awake, these to everlasting life, but the others to disgrace and everlasting contempt.”

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.”

AsiaNews – “With the support of local authorities, some Uzbek imams have denied the families of non-Muslims the right to bury their loved ones in state-owned cemeteries.

Three cases involving Protestants have been reported in recent weeks, raising questions about religious freedom in Uzbekistan, this according to the Forum 18, a news service that documents violations of religious freedom in Central Asia.

The three people involved are all former Muslims who converted to Protestant Christianity. In each case, their families were not allowed to bury them alongside other relatives.

In Central Asian culture, being buried together with family members and with the participation of the local community are important.

Although Forum 18 reported the first case only a few days ago, the latter dates back to 9 April. It concerns Gayrat Buriyev, 68-year-old Christian, originally from a village near the capital Tashkent.

The local imam refused to let his relatives bury him in the state-owned cemetery, repeatedly cursing the deceased’s family. When the latter appealed to local government authorities, they were unsuccessful.

The ban stems from the deceased’s conversion to Christianity. Cemeteries are state-owned, but converts cannot be buried along with Muslims, the imam said.

‘The imam cursed the family for becoming Christians and insulted them with unquotable expressions, branding them unclean and defiled infidels,’ local sources said, adding that he was ‘acting based on Islamic Sharia Law’.

Complaints by relatives were to no avail. Although they insisted that Uzbekistan is (or ought to be) a secular state and cemeteries are state-owned, the local imam, claimed that the one in question was ‘a Muslim cemetery’ and Christians are not allowed.” Read more.

1 Corinthians 15:51-52, “Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”

Christian Leader In Iraq: “In 10 Years’ Time There Will Only Be A Few Thousand Christians Left”

04/29/2014 1 comment

Matthew 24:22, “And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.”

Colossians 3:12, “Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering …”

Acts 14:22b, “… we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.”

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “‘The Iraqi Christian community had more than a million followers, 600 thousand in Baghdad alone, now they have less than 400 thousand in the whole country.’ The ones who have been driven out of Iraq weren’t chased out by Zionists, either. Western governments and media wring their hands over ‘Islamophobia’ while hundreds of thousands of Christians in Iraq have suffered grievously at the hands of Islamic supremacists. But to talk about that would harm the wonderful ongoing ‘Muslim-Christian dialogue.’

‘Sako: ‘In 10 years there will only be a few thousand Christians left in Iraq,’’ Asia News, April 28, 2014:

Baghdad (AsiaNew / Agencies) – The Iraqi Chaldean Patriarch, Louis Raphael Sako I, says he is seriously concerned over the continuing decline of Christian presence in the country: “If measures are not taken soon, in 10 years’ time there will only be a few thousand Christians left in Iraq”.

The Iraqi Christian community had more than a million followers, 600 thousand in Baghdad alone, now they have less than 400 thousand in the whole country. The main causes of this massive migration are poor security, increased death threats against Christians from Islamists and the seizure of their property by armed groups.

The Patriarch describes the scale of the phenomenon of migration as “frightening” and says it is worsened by the encouragement of Western powers.

After visiting communities throughout the country, Sako said: “Christians are those who suffer most from the upsurge in violence across Iraq. This is due to the fact that Christians do not maintain tribal affiliations, as do Arab Muslims. The only way they have to resolve disputes is through the Iraqi legal system, which is often criticized for its corruption, and which is subject to political manipulation”.

Arizona: Muslim Man Says It’s His Religious Right To … Kill His Wife

04/29/2014 7 comments

If the “prophet” of Islam believed it was ok to mistreat and even kill women, then those who follow him ought to believe it, too. For peaceful purposes …

Qur’an Sura 4:34a, “Men have authority over women because [Allah] has made the one superior to the other …”

Revelation 9:21, “And they did not repent of their murders … or their sexual immorality …”

By Phil Benson, WFSB – “A man who allegedly told his wife his ‘Islamic belief’ gave him the right to kill her is behind bars after he punched and tried to strangle her inside his vehicle, according to a court document.

Ansar Muhammad, 43, was arrested at the couple’s home in Avondale Saturday morning on charges of unlawful imprisonment as well as aggravated and sexual assault, among others.

His wife told police the incidents were sparked after Muhammad had accused her of having an affair, court paperwork said.

At one point, Muhammad picked her up and put her in their vehicle, police said. He then drove to and parked behind an Avondale Walgreens store, where the he punched her multiple times in the face, neck, back, chest and legs, officers said.

A court document stated Muhammad ‘used his hands during the assault to strangulate and impede the breathing of the victim.’

His wife said she continued to try to get away. Muhammad told her he was going to kill her because he had the right due to his ‘Islamic belief,’ according to the probable cause statement.

Muhammad then drove his wife back to their home and threatened to throw her in a surrounding lake because she could not swim, court paperwork stated.

He told her to be quiet and not wake their three children before taking her phone and telling her to go to the master bedroom, where he sexually assaulted her, the court document said.” Read more.
