In a recent interview on CBN News, Andrew White, an Anglican priest known as the "Vicar of Baghdad," tried to recount the horrific atrocities Christians in Iraq are suffering at the hands of the Islamic State.
That Islam's core texts incite violence and intolerance has many ramifications, for those willing to go down this path of logic.
Russia appears to be taking serious moves to combat the "radicalization" of Muslims within its border.
Although the birth of the Islamic state and the herald of the caliphate are often regarded as some of 2014's "big shockers," they were foretold in striking detail and with an accurate timeline by an al-Qaeda insider nearly one decade ago.
Once again, Islamic State Muslims are pointing to Islam in order to justify what the civilized world counts as atrocities.
Over a decade ago, the U.S. conquered Iraq; its military and intelligence were on the ground for years with autonomy. In other words, U.S. influence and authority was more pronounced in Iraq than probably any other Muslim country in the world.
While many have rightfully criticized U.S. President Obama's recent assertion that the Islamic State "is not Islamic," some of his other equally curious but more subtle comments pronounced in the same speech have been largely ignored.
As shocking as the Muslim-run sex ring in Rotherham, England may seem to some—1,400 British children as young as 11 plied with drugs before being passed around and sexually abused in cabs and kabob shops—the fact is that this phenomenon is immensely widespread. In the United Kingdom alone, it's the fifth sex abuse ring led by Muslims to be uncovered.
Despite how unsavory and barbaric Islamic groups and persons around the world have been acting—whether Nigeria's Boko Haram, Mesopotamia's Islamic State, Somalia's Shabaab—perhaps few things are as disgusting and cowardly as the Muslim rape of nuns: defenseless Christian women who sacrifice much of their lives to help sick and needy Muslims.
Recently I spent some time watching Shark Week on television. Being fascinated with large predatory fish, I've watched many shark programs throughout the years. And I've reached one conclusion: the "liberal" response one is accustomed to when the topic of Islam and Islamists come up—that they are misunderstood, that we need to respect their ways and be tolerant, that it's our fault we get attacked—has become so embedded in the Western psyche that it now colors our understanding of the animal world as well.
Here I expose another big lie from Mideast Studies professors.
World leaders are increasingly pointing to U.S. President Obama's failures in the Middle East.
The new "caliphate" of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi—the Islamic State, formerly "ISIS"—recently made clear that it means to follow in the footsteps of the original caliphate of Abu Bakr al-Sadiq (632-634), specifically by directing its jihad against fellow Muslims, in Islamic parlance, the "hypocrites" and "apostates," or in Western terminology, "moderates."
I just spent the better part of the day reading and listening to sermons by the leaders and jihadis of the new "caliphate" in Mesopotamia, the Islamic State (formerly "Islamic State of Iraq and Syria"). I did so in the vain hopes of learning something "new."
A recent Gulf News report sheds some light on how and why the United States helped bring the Muslim Brotherhood and its Islamist allies to power, followed by all the subsequent chaos and atrocities in the Mideast region.
Muslim Brotherhood sympathizers recently went on a sexual assault and rape spree in Egypt as a way of "getting even" with those women who dared to celebrate the presidential victory of Abdel Fatteh al-Sisi—the former army chief who overthrew Muslim Brotherhood rule in Egypt.
Overlooked in the midst of all the celebrations in Egypt concerning the presidential victory of Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, his predecessor, President Adly Mansour—who very much shares in Sisi's worldview and politics—made a strange comment about the place of the nation's Christian minority, the Copts.
Evidence has again emerged indicting that if Western mainstream media actually reported more on the sufferings of Christians throughout the Islamic world, their lot would likely improve.
Islam permits Muslim husbands to abandon their wives to rapists in order to save their own lives—so says Dr. Yassir al-Burhami, vice president of Egypt's Salafi party, the nation's premiere Islamist party since the Muslim Brotherhood was banned.
A recent article in The New York Times exemplifies why the the paper simply cannot be trusted. Written by one David Kirkpatrick and titled "Vow of Freedom of Religion Goes Unkept in Egypt," the article disingenuously interprets general truths in an effort to validate its thesis.
A few days ago in Sudan, an eight-month pregnant wife and mother was sentenced to death by hanging for refusing to renounce Christ and embrace Islam.
Islamic law permits the possession of concubines, or sex slaves. This has been demonstrated countless times, including through Islamic clerics quoting Islamic scriptures, and through ordinary Muslims, past and present, acting on it.
To the awe of its readership, a recent Daily Mail article reports that the "jihadist Islamic State of Iraq and Levant [ISIL]," which is currently entrenched in Raqqa, Syria, "publicly crucified two Syrian rebels in northeastern Syria in revenge for a grenade attack on members of their group."
A young boy in Egypt, apparently no more than six-years-old, was recently raped by a Muslim Brotherhood member "angered" at the child for singing praises to Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, widely seen in Egypt as the hero of the revolution that saw the ousting of Muhammad Morsi and the Brotherhood in July 2013, and likely Egypt's next president.
Who is ultimately responsible for the ongoing attacks on Christians and their churches throughout the Islamic world?
