VIDEO: IMAM TAWHIDI: “Do not lie to the nation – our books teach the beheading of people. We have a religion of war.”
The world needs this kind od Muslim, not the radical jihadists! Imam Shaikh Mohammad Tawhidi appeared on Australian television to blast the liberal narrative that Islam has nothing to do with extremism.
“How do these young people get radicalized?” asked the Sunrise host.
“For 1400 years we have a religion of war. How did Islam spread from Saudi Arabia to Indonesia all the way to Bosnia? All spread by the sword”
“We need to be very realistic when dealing with this matter,” began Tawhidi, who has frequently come under fire from his fellow Muslims for his pragmatic view of the religion and call for reformation.
In reference to Manchester bomber Salman Abedi, Tawhidi continued, “you have a 22-year-old who gets radicalized over two, three sermons, within a Friday mosque gathering.”
“Now, this age, is an age when someone would expect people to be going out, having fun, but no we have a large number of youth that are being radicalized.”
“This happens because of the books that we have – the Islamic scriptures that we have,” continued Tawhidi. “They push the Muslim youth to believe that if you go out there and you kill the infidel how you will gain paradise.”
Last month, Iman Tawhidi backed controversial Muslim critic Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s demand that Islamic schools should be closed for security reasons.
Tawhidi is the official Imam of the Islamic Association of Australia. He’d been receiving threats for criticizing Islam, calling for shutting down Muslim schools and allowing only one mosque in Australia. He said he would never have come to Australia if he knew a ‘mosque on every corner’ was being built ( click link – The Daily Mail )
Muslim convert John Rene Rockschiil entered the Metropolitan Cathedral in Mexico City on Monday and stabbed the priest in the neck at the altar while officiating a mass.
A priest who officiated at the Metropolitan Cathedral in Mexico City was stabbed last Monday at 6:00 pm by a middle-aged man who went up to the altar and stabbed a blade into his neck.
According to the archdiocese, the attacker, named John Rene Rockschiil, of Muslim faith according to the Mexican media, was arrested after carrying out the attack with a knife.
After calling the police, a Condor unit from the capital’s public security secretariat arrived in the vicinity of the cathedral, located in the historic city center, to transfer the clergyman to San Miguel Chapultepec hospital.
Some of the testimonies of the parishioners who were in the cathedral emphasize that some of those present detained the 35-year-old man, in addition to providing medical care to the parish priest Miguel Angel Machorro, until the aid services arrived.
GOV. CHRIS CHRISTIE APPROVES CHILD MARRIAGE, VETOES BAN, CITING RELIGIOUS FREEDOM…SHARIA IN NEW JERSEY?
“An exclusion without exceptions would violate the cultures and traditions of some communities in New Jersey based on religious traditions,” the Republican governor wrote in a statement.
( Reuters) The governor of New Jersey declined to sign a measure into law on Thursday that would have made the U.S. state the first to ban child marriage without exception.
Republican Chris Christie, a supporter of President Donald Trump, said such a ban would conflict with religious customs.
Underage marriage is widespread in the United States, where about 170,000 children were wed between 2000 and 2010 in 38 of the 50 states where data was available, according to activists.

( Fox News ) The long road home for the thousands of Iraqi Christians displaced by ISIS is set to begin Monday with the construction of 100 houses– the first of an estimated 13,000 houses to be built in a venture that will cost about $250 million.
Ethnic and religious minority groups like the Assyrian Christians were driven from their ancestral homelands across the Nineveh Plain, a vast region in Northern Iraq, when the Islamic State attempted to establish their caliphate.
But now that ISIS forces have mostly been driven out of the region, the Assyrians are looking to return and rebuild. The work is finally beginning due to an organization called the Nineveh Reconstruction Committee (NRC), which has received funding from Aid to the Church in Need (ACN), a pastoral aid organization associated with the Catholic Church.
The NRC will break ground on Monday in the Assyrian towns of Bartella, Karamless and Qaraqosh, when they will either repair or completely rebuild the first 100 homes.
Completion of these homes is expected to be completed by summer’s end.
“One hundred is not a large number compared to the many thousands that will eventually be worked on, but it’s a very significant number,” Joop Koopman with Aid to the Church in Need told Fox News. “It’s a concrete sign that this community is on its way to being rebuilt.”
The NRC was set up earlier this year to assist in the planning and supervision of the reconstruction program, which is expected to cost upwards of $250 million. According to a survey conducted by ACN this past winter, about 40 percent of Christian families—roughly 12,000 men, women, and children who fled ISIS when they captured the region—have expressed interest in returning to their homes in the Nineveh Plain.
“For a long time people have been saying that Iraqi Christians don’t want to return home.” Robert Nicholson, Executive Director of The Philos Project, a humanitarian aid organization focused on promoting a pluralist Middle East, told Fox News. “Having spoken to many of them, both inside Iraq and around the world, I can tell you that’s absolutely untrue. Many of them would love to come back, and some of them actually are.”
Nicholson added that protection for the Assyrians as they return will be key.

Christianity in Iraq
The Christians of Iraq are considered to be one of the oldest continuous Christian communities in the world. The vast majority are indigenous Eastern Aramaic-speaking ethnic Assyrians. There is also a small community of Armenians and populations of Kurdish, Arab and Turkmen Christians. While older sources mention also Christian Kurds, most present-day Christians are ethnically different from Kurds and they identify themselves as being separate peoples, of different origins and with distinct histories of their own.
In Iraq, Christians numbered about 1,500,000 in 2003, representing just over 6% of the population. Since then, it has been estimated that the number of Christians in Iraq have dropped to as low as 450,000 by 2013. However, due to a lack of an official census, the number is difficult to estimate and could be as high as 1.2 million.  The most widely followed denomination among Iraq Christians is the Chaldean Catholic Church.
Christians live primarily in Baghdad, Basra, Arbil and Kirkuk and in Assyrian towns and regions such as the Nineveh Plains in the north. Iraqi Christians live primarily in the Kurdistan Region; and in regions bordering it in northeastern Syria, northwestern Iran and southeastern Turkey, an area roughly corresponding to ancient Assyria.
Christians in Iraq are not allowed to proselytise, especially to Muslims. Muslims who change their faith to Christianity, are subject to societal and official pressure, which may lead to the death penalty. However, there have been cases in which Muslims have secretly adopted the Christian faith, becoming practicing Christians, but legally Muslims; thus, the statistics of Iraqi Christians does not include Muslim converts to Christianity. In Iraqi Kurdistan, Christians are allowed to proselytize.
- “We are primarily investigating Title 26, which is tax evasion and general fraud against the government,” Mosely also said, according to WFAA.
( Daily Caller ) Criminal investigators from the Internal Revenue Service and the U.S. Postal Service raided the Grapevine, Texas offices of televangelist Benny Hinn on Wednesday afternoon.
Hinn is famous for his stadium-filling “Miracle Crusades.” At these revival-style events, held worldwide, Hinn claims to use special, supernatural power to heal people suffering from terminal diseases and various handicaps.
Several IRS and Postal Service agents participated in the Wednesday raid.
The investigators entered Hinn’s offices, then left with boxes — and boxes, and boxes — of documents. The investigators then placed the boxes on trucks at the scene.
Officials offered few details about the scope of the investigation, reports Dallas ABC affiliate WFAA.
“Today, we are here on official business,” IRS criminal investigations special agent Michael Moseley told the flock of reporters who gathered to watch the slow-moving raid.
“We are primarily investigating Title 26, which is tax evasion and general fraud against the government,” Mosely also said, according to WFAA.
“We are conducting a search warrant on the premises. Basically, that’s all I can tell you today,” Moseley added.
An unidentified federal employee told WFAA that the investigation into potentially illegal activities by Hinn had been extensive prior to Wednesday.
MUSLIMS TO PROTEST AGAINST AMAZON FOR LACK OF PRAYER ROOMS… THE MUSLIMS WHINE TO SEE HOW THE INFIDELS COWER!
The Muslim whiners are whining again for more special treatment – they want prayer rooms!
Muslim employees are leading a march in front of the Amazon headquarters claiming that they are being discriminated against because Amazon doesn’t provide prayer rooms to a few Muslim security guards employed by Amazon subcontractor, Security Industry Specialists. Each prayer is 10 minutes long plus the Muslim has to wash their hands and feet prior to praying. The thing is, Muslims can pray in later part of the day if they didn’t pray earlier that day.
They know in western countries, when a Muslim whines, the infidels succumb to them. In the meantime, Muslim countries BAN Christians from worshiping in public, not allowed to build churches, carry a Bible or share their Christian faith.
Fox News reports:
Outraged Muslims are reportedly planning a May 1 demonstration at the Amazon headquarters in Seattle, Washington.
The company is under fire after several Muslim security guards demanded time and space to pray five times a day, while on the job.
The guards contend in a lawsuit filed this week that the subcontractor who employs them does not appropriately accommodate their faith and retaliates against those who speak out.
The Service Employees International Union and the guards allege that Amazon grants high-earning tech workers conference rooms to pray in, but they do not provide the same accommodation for contracted security officers during their law-mandated work breaks.
Amazon and the security contractor have refuted the allegations.
