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.
WOMAN, 70, CHARGED WITH HATE CRIME FOR FACEBOOK POST: ‘MIGRANTS DEFECATE IN STREETS AND SET CARS ON FIRE’
A 70-year-old woman is charged with hate crime in Sweden because she posted on Facebook that Muslim migrants ‘defecate in streets and set cars on fire.’ So what if it’s true! That’s racist, right libs? In Sweden, be careful what you post on your Facebook about the Muslim migrants or else you could end up going to jail for up to four years for hate crime. The migrants are the protected and new beloved residents in Sweden and if you have a problem with that, you’re just being racist so shut up.
From FriaTider :
A 70-year-old woman in Dalarna is charged with hateful people since Facebook wrote that immigrants fulfill their needs in the streets, writes DT.se.
According to the prosecution, the woman via Facebook should have expressed disdain on people with a foreign background.
In a post from 2015, she has written that immigrants “fire cars and kisses and go to the streets”.
This violates the law in the face of the public, says the prosecutor.
The prosecuted woman has acknowledged that she wrote the post, but denied that she had committed a criminal act.
As proof of the 70-year-old woman there is a screenshot from Facebook.
The penalty for hatred against the people’s group is imprisonment for a maximum of two years or, in the event of a fine, fines. If the crime is considered to be grossly convicted, the accused is sentenced to imprisonment for at least six months and no more than four years.
REPORTER ANDY NGO FIRED FOR POSTING VIDEO OF MUSLIM SAYING ATHEISM IS PUNISHABLE BY DEATH ACCORDING TO QURAN
- Muslim panel member: “I am not going to sugarcoat it. So if you go to a different country…but in a Muslim country, a country based on Quranic law, disbelieving or being an infidel, is not allowed, so you will be given the choice.”
- My editor [Leary], whom I deeply respected at the time, called me “predatory” and “reckless,” telling me I had put the life and well-being of the Muslim student and his family at risk
( Heatst ) Portland State University’s campus newspaper, The Vanguard, has fired an editor following his coverage of an interfaith conference. The paper accused journalist Andy Ngo of endangering a student’s life after he tweeted out a video of the panel, which featured the Muslim student saying that apostasy and atheism must be punishable by death.
Writing for National Review, the former multimedia editor of the campus paper explained how he was fired for unofficially covering the event, which included speakers from Muslim, Hindu, Jewish, Christian and atheist backgrounds.
The unnamed Muslim student speaker took a question from the audience, who asked him if the religion permitted killing atheists and apostates for their religious views. The panelist responded in the affirmative, stating that under “Quranic law,” being a non-believer is considered criminal in countries that impose it.
He added: “So in that case, you are given the liberty to leave the country. I am not going to sugarcoat it. So if you go to a different country…but in a Muslim country, a country based on Quranic law, disbelieving or being an infidel, is not allowed, so you will be given the choice.”
In other words, apostates and atheists can either choose to leave or suffer the consequences where such strict interpretations of the law are imposed.
Ngo posted an extended clip of the exchange shortly after, to provide full context for the discussion. Regardless, The Vanguard claims the video is being shared “widely out of context.”
Describing it as a “misunderstanding gone viral,” the campus paper repudiated Ngo for sharing the video and blamed his tweets for becoming a topic of discussion on “right-leaning media outlets.” Breitbart published coverage of the event with Ngo’s tweets several days before The Vanguard covered it, apparently as a response to the dust it kicked up.
….In National Review, Ngo says that The Vanguard editor-in-chief Colleen Leary called him into a meeting with managing editor Tim Sullivan, and newspaper advisor Reaz Mahmood. The team admonished him for sharing the unedited video clip on social media.
Despite never sharing the Muslim panelist’s name, he was fired for supposedly “endangering” the student’s life with a report that inconvenienced the student paper. Ngo writes:
My editor [Leary], whom I deeply respected at the time, called me “predatory” and “reckless,” telling me I had put the life and well-being of the Muslim student and his family at risk. She said that my tweets implied the student advocated the killing of atheists. Another person [Mahmood] in the meeting said I should have taken into account the plight of victimized groups in the “current political climate.” The editor claimed I had “violated the paper’s ethical standards” by not “minimizing harm” toward the speaker.
“Largest Catholic University Bans ‘Gay Lives Matter’ Posters For Event on Islam,”
by Tyler O’Neil, PJ Media, May 12, 2017:
DePaul University in Illinois, the largest Roman Catholic university in the United States, prohibited posters with the slogan “Gay Lives Matter” to advertise a presentation by a gay reporter on Islamic discrimination against LGBT people across the world.
“Using the same look/brand as BLM [Black Lives Matter] pits two marginalized groups against each other,” Amy Mynaugh, director of the Office of Student Involvement at the Catholic university, said in an email rejecting the posters. “It doesn’t appear that Turning Point has any connection to the Black Lives Matter movement and this seems to simply be co-opting another movement’s approach.”
The posters were printed to advertise for an event with the campus group Turning Point USA, entitled “Dictatorships and Radical Islam: The Enemies of Gay Rights.” The speaker, James Kirchick, is an openly gay reporter and author of The End of Europe: Dictators, Demagogues, and the Coming Dark Age.
The anti-Israel group DePaul Students for Justice in Palestine announced its members would protest the event. Kirchick captured a profanity-laced Facebook tirade declaring outrage against the event.
The Facebook user MK Okay characterized Kirchick as “a white, Zionist, neoliberal journalist” who would “speak on sh*t he knows nothing about.” Announcing a protest, MK declared, “Not in our f**king name will you pretend to define our safety, and where danger comes from.”
It gets better. “Not in our f**king name will you continue to demonize Islam and Muslims and ignore the radical Christian right,” the Facebook user continued. “Because we all know & see what the real danger here is – and we all know & see how this is f**ked.” Sure. Because there are so many members of the “radical Christian right” throwing gay people off of buildings…
This selective outrage merely solidified a disturbing trend among the Left. In order to emphasize the “oppression” of Muslims, liberals downplay and perhaps even ignore the deaths and sufferings of LGBT people in the Muslim world. Conservative Christians need to show more charity to LGBT people, but they aren’t stoning them and throwing them off of buildings.
As Kirchick said in his speech, “The fate of sexual minorities is inextricably bound to the fate of liberal democracy.”
Jason Plotzke, president of the DePaul chapter of Turning Point USA, defended the “Gay Lives Matter” messaging. “We do not see how the branding of Black Lives Matter is exclusive from all other lives and we cannot make a similar statement in a different movement,” he told The College Fix.
“Sure, it is related and based off the BLM slogan,” Plotzke admitted, “but with no intent to undermine the movement. We are not even using the poster to push an entire movement, but rather a specific event. We, as students in an academic setting, should be allowed to market our events as we see fit.”
The chapter president also explained the thinking behind the posters. “The statement is very simple and you could not market such an event any better and eye catching [sic],” he said. “When people see that statement, they will either agree or disagree, but the point is getting people to see the message, and we firmly believe that it would have been effective.”
Indeed, it seems that this controversy drew attention to the event, and protesters who covered their faces with masks were even turned away.
Last October, DePaul University President Reverend Dennis H. Holtschneider banned posters reading “Unborn Lives Matter,” a message in keeping with Catholic teaching on the sanctity of human life. Holtschneider defended this decision, despite the fact that “Black Lives Matter” posters hang on the windows of DePaul’s administrative offices.
In a letter, Holtschneider denounced the pro-life message, declaring, “you will see us refuse to allow members of our community to be subjected to bigotry that occurs under the cover of free speech.” The president admitted that the school “asked students to redesign a banner that provokes the Black Lives Matter movement.”
Much like the “Unborn Lives Matter” sign, the “Gay Lives Matter” sign was copying the style of “Black Lives Matter” to prove a point — that unborn children and homosexuals are being killed, in America and in Muslim countries across the world, respectively.
The use of this kind of messaging seems defensible on the grounds that Black Lives Matter sees itself as directing attention to people dying, because these people are being ignored. It is arguably an even better use of the motif to highlight the deaths of the unborn (minimized as “clumps of cells”) or those of LGBT people in Muslim countries (often overlooked so as not to appear “Islamophobic”).
Nevertheless, Students for Justice in Palestine distributed its own posters, declaring that “queer liberation is always anti-racist and anti-imperialist.” Is it racist to point out that some of the more radical Islamic countries put gay people to death? Is it inherently imperialist to say anything negative about non-Western countries? What about Russia, which was an imperialist country among those Kirchick attacked as anti-gay?
These arguments also make Amy Mynaugh’s claim that “Gay Lives Matter” somehow “pits two marginalized groups against each other.” Are gay lives inherently in conflict with black lives? Does the “Black Lives Matter” movement include advocacy for the whitewashing of murder, under the premise that Muslims are more often black?…
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.
FREE! 82 CHRISTIAN SCHOOLGIRLS KIDNAPPED BY ISIS-LINKED BOKO HARAM IN NIGERIA FREED AFER THREE YEARS OF CAPTIVITY
( Daily Mail ) Jubilant families of 82 schoolgirls who were kidnapped by Boko Haram could not hide their emotions, as they were freed after more than three years in captivity.
They are the largest group yet to be released after years of tense negotiations between the government and the terrorist group, a Nigerian government spokesman said.
The girls were among about 220 students abducted from a secondary school in the northeastern town of Chibok in 2014, sparking a global campaign #bringbackourgirls supported by then-U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama, and a host of other celebrities.
Enoch Mark, a Christian pastor whose two daughters were among those kidnapped, said he was told of the release by the Bring Back Our Girls pressure group and an official in Maiduguri.
He added: ‘This is good news to us. We have been waiting for this day. We hope the remaining girls will soon be released.’
Bring Back Our Girls said it was awaiting an official statement but added: ‘Our hopes and expectations are high as we look forward to this news being true and confirmed.’
Boko Haram fighters stormed the Government Girls Secondary School in the remote town of Chibok on the evening of April 14, 2014 and kidnapped 276 girls.
Fifty-seven managed to escape in the hours that followed but the remaining 219 were held by the group.
