Bishop Angaelos, leader of the Coptic Orthodox Church in the United Kingdom, said he has forgiven the Islamic State terror group, which is responsible for the recent brutal beheading of 21 Egyptian Copts in Libya, explaining that "anger and hatred" only lead to "a spiral of violence."
Bishop Angaelos, who was in Washington last week, spoke to CNN and admitted that the killings were indeed shocking, maintaining that the act still needed to be forgiven.
"It may seem unbelievable to some of your readers, but as a Christian and a Christian minister I have a responsibility to myself and to others to guide them down this path of forgiveness," he said. "We don't forgive the act because the act is heinous. But we do forgive the killers from the depths of our hearts." more >>
Most radical Islamic jihadis claim to be devout Muslims who promote the spread of strict conservative Islamic societal principles, yet it has been continuously documented through the years that many of those Muslim extremists are chronically addicted to sex and pornography.
Jihadis' obsession with porn and sex is not a new phenomenon that is only being seen today through the "brutal" and "instinctive" sex drive of the Islamic State terrorist group in Iraq and Syria. Even the late Osama Bin Laden, the world-famous leader of Al Qaeda, had a huge collection of porn that was found by Navy Seals who searched his compound when he was killed. Additionally, police raids of terrorist cells in the Europe since 9/11 have revealed "countless" images of child porn, The New York Post reported.
Islamic terrorists being addicted to porn exposes a double standard, especially for those jihadis who blame America and the West for polluting the world with sexual desire, filth and sin. more >>
The U.S. Central Command is drawing criticism for revealing too many operational details about its plan to train up to 25,000 Iraqi troops as part of a mission to retake the city of Mosul from the Islamic State terror group in Iraq in April or May.
"That is pretty amazing that that information's out there," retired Gen. Jack Keane, former Army vice chief of staff, told Fox News on Friday, the day after the Command announced its plan.
A senior Command official told reporters Thursday that the mission involving at least five Iraqi Army brigades and three brigades of Kurdish Peshmerga fighters will be carried out around April and May before Ramadan and summer heat begin in that country. more >>
Following the gruesome beheading of 21 Coptic Christians captured on video and released for all the world to see recently, Islamic State militants in Libya released more evidence of their continued rash of extreme behavior this week in photos depicting the burning of "un-Islamic" musical instruments in the north African country.
The Daily Mail reported Wednesday that the photos were released by the local "media wing" of the terrorists group and shows the burning of musical instruments near the port city of Derna in eastern Libya. A message that came with the release said the instruments were seized by the religious police in the city of Derna and "burnt in accordance with Islamic law."
Akhtarul Wasey, a professor and director of the Zakir Husain Institute of Islamic Studies at Jamia Millia Islamia University in New Delhi, India, explained in a New York Times blog from Feb. 5, 2013, that while he wasn't sure if there was any passage in the Quran explicitly stating that it's un-Islamic to listen to or play music, religious scholars have long asserted that the practice is un-Islamic. more >>
