Muslim Lobbyist Represents U.S. at European Human Rights Conference

In the non-Muslim world, "human rights" refers to the United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948, which affirms that all people – men and women — are guaranteed individual rights. By contrast, the Muslim world defines "human rights" according to the Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam, which holds that men and women are not equal and that it is the duty of men and women to follow the will of Allah, "in accordance with Sharia law."

New Threats to Free Speech

It was alarming to see the producer of the video, "Innocence of Muslims," being dragged away in the middle of the night by American police — conveniently, after Muslim riots — for a so-called "parole violation." The shameless administration probably wanted a photo-op of the producer in handcuffs to show and tell Muslim world, "I am tough on those who insult Mohammed."

Mr. Obama, the Future Belongs to Truth Tellers

Nonie Darwish:  “My heart sank when I heard president Obama’s recent statement at the UN: “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” It was difficult to hear the president of the United States declare to the world that critics of Mohammed are wrong, don’t have a cause, must not be heard, respected, taken seriously and will have no future in America.”

Qatar designs law banning criticism of Islam, plans to present it at UN

The ultimate goal of the initiative is to make it a criminal offense to discuss the motives and goals of the jihadis, thereby rendering us mute and defenseless in the face of their advancing threat, and to compel the West to adopt Sharia blasphemy laws, and ultimately the rest of Sharia as well.

Freedom from Islam

In 1941, FDR proposed his famous Four Freedoms. Some seventy years later it may be time to add a fifth freedom to that list. Freedom from Islam. Freedom from Islam would have seemed like an unlikely candidate back in 1941 when the worry was over secular ideologies, but as the West and its ideologies have fallen into a soporific state of decline, the fascism that concerns us no longer wears a military uniform or any of the trappings of nationalism, but instead wraps itself in the turban of religion.

The Middle East is Just the Opening Act

What happened in the Middle East is serious, but it might only be the opening act to an anti-American drama that could be unfolding for years if we do not change course; not in the Middle East but in South Asia, the land mass between Iran and China with familiar countries including India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. The numbers alone are compelling: one in every five people on the planet lives in South Asia; one in every three Muslims calls it home; two nuclear powers angrily eye each other across a common South Asian border; and one of them, India, is an emerging economic giant.

Islamic Relief Canada reçoit 1,5 million $ de l’ACDI en dépit de son engagement à financer le jihad

En transférant de l’argent à Islamic Relief, le gouvernement du Canada finance une organisation pour laquelle l’appui aux activités humanitaires légitimes est indissociable de l’appui au jihad.

Taliban's "Radio Mullah" sent jihad hit squad after Pakistani schoolgirl

The international outrage this incident is getting is ironic. Does Madonna know (or care), and does Ban Ki-moon know (or care) that Infidels suffer like this in Islamic lands on a regular basis?

IMMIGRATION

 

Dr. Salim Mansur, one of ACT! For Canada’s great friends and allies, was recently invited to speak before the Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration.  Below is his powerful statement.  I urge you to read the report – ALL of it.

 

Salim Mansur: Presentation to the Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration

 

“And lest any member wants to instruct me that my views are in any way politically incorrect or worse, 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 that I cherish since I know what is its opposite.”

Honour Killing Entrenched in Islam

 

Unless we recognize the problem for what it really is and change the Criminal Code to specifically address honour killings in Canada, they will continue to exist merely as "a complex, difficult-to-eradicate phenomenon"

Honour Killings are Dishonourable

 

Since the murders of Aqsa Pervez, the Shafia sisters and the dismembering of five-year-old Farah Khan, the media have been inundated by Islamist lobbying to back off from using the phrase “honour killing”, or associating these barbaric practices with my Muslim community, or with Islamic sharia.

Islamic Terrorism Caused by Poverty?

Author Ibn Warraq has repeatedly stated, the root cause of Islamic terrorism is Islam’s teachings and the example of Muhammad and his companions as described in traditional sources. Those who claim that Islamic terrorism is caused by poverty and oppression are parroting Marxist dogma, where violence is caused by “oppression.”

Obama picks Salam al-Marayati, Islamic supremacist defender of Hamas and Hizballah, to represent US at human rights conference

Salam al-Marayati, founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), was picked to represent the United States government at the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe’s (OSCE) annual 10-day human rights conference, the Human Dimension Implementation Meetings (HDIM).

Muslims Offended – Soldier’s Career Destroyed

 What happened to LTC Dooley is more than a personal miscarriage of justice.  When instructors are prohibited from teaching military officers about the true threat posed by Islamic Radicalism, it is a threat to our national security.

The Qatari Takeover of France

The Qatari Emir, who rules his country as a dictator, has vowed to "spare no effort" to spread the fundamentalist teachings of Wahhabi Islam across "the whole world."

Six Sure Signs Someone You Know Is an Islamophobe

 

And if you are already a semi-active “Islamophobe” may I suggest becoming a “Raging Islamophobe.”  A word of caution: This could result in some people not liking you.  But if that is all that is being asked of us, for now, to stand up for liberty, to champion the cause of freedom — then being labeled an “Islamophobe” is a small price to pay.  In fact, to be an “Islamophobe” is an honor.

The Taliban’s Barbaric Shooting of Child Activist

 

Despite her young age, a Taliban spokesman said it had no choice but to eliminate Malala as she “was pro-West, she was speaking against Taliban and… she was promoting Western culture in Pashtun areas.” Malala’s reprieve from death may be short lived as the Taliban has stated that it still intends to kill this “secular-minded lady” and thus finish “this chapter,” a murder that it hopes will prevent other young Pakistani people from speaking ill of the Islamist terror group.

Please keep Malala in your prayers.

World Truth Seminar – in the comfort of your home!

  

A MAJOR INTERVIEW SERIES FROM

ONE OF OUR COMMITTED MEMBERS –

ELSA SCHIEDER, PhD

 

Her questions:  Who are the people exploring Islam and daring to speak out? What are their major findings? And what do they find are the most effective strategies against Islamism?

 

Click here to check out her online teleseminar series and register (no charge):

 

Personal Journeys Toward Difficult Truths:

Understanding Islam, Understanding the West

 

Elsa is calling it a truth summit, because among the first truths to be hidden is who we are as people. Instead, we're often called names – paranoid racist Islamophobic bigot. But who are we? She has met caring, intelligent, courageous people – including, interviewed in September,  Bill Warner, Pamela GellerRaheel Raza, Mark Durie, and Fred Litwin. 

 

The second 5 interviews begin Oct 15.

 Register now. Let others know.

 

 

Monday, Oct 15: Robert Spencer of JihadWatch. I don't think I need to say anything more in the way of introduction. He's most likely the most famous person speaking out against Islamism. 

 

Tuesday, Oct 16: Valerie Price, an unlikely counter-jihadi – with a long career as an interior decorator – and a breast cancer survivor, who recently became one of the stars of Beauty and the Breast. 

 

Wednesday, Oct 17: Gavin Boby, a British lawyer who has been instrumental in helping local neighbourhoods resist planning applications for mosques.  So far they've won 14 of the 15 cases. 

 

Thursday, Oct 18: Aruna Papp, who has been involved, for over 20 years, in helping women escape from honor-based violence – prevalent in many cultures. 

 

Two people on Friday: Vince Lombardi, instrumental in Elsa's own journey. She began posting pieces on Islam soon after the massive Muslim response to the Danish cartoon. At the time she knew nothing about Islam, except that it claimed to be a religion of peace. What comes next? Listen to the interview.

 

On Friday there will also be a second surprise guest. Find out who it is on Friday, October 19.

 

   

We commend Elsa for her dedication to this cause and the many, many hours she has spent in putting this series together in the hopes of uncovering truths about Islamism.
