June 18 - Dying for another Man's Sins or A Root Cause of Domestic Terrorism
Islam is very much an offshoot of primitive Judaism with a sprinkling of Christian theology modified for a religion obsessed with death.
Christian dogma maintains that Jesus' blood, which he shed on the Cross, washed away the sins of the sinners who choose to believe in Him and act accordingly and thereby gain access to Paradise.
In Islam's bizarre adaption of this piece of another religion's doctrine, it is a believer's blood shed in Allah's Cause which washes away his or her sins.
Even bone fide cold-blooded killers will be welcomed into Paradise, no questions asked, if their last murder is on Allah's behalf.
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle said, "Allah welcomes two men with a smile; one of whom kills the other and both of them enter Paradise. One fights in Allah's Cause and gets killed. Later on Allah forgives the killer who also get martyred (In Allah's Cause)."
Expect more bloodbath like the one in Orlando (and worse) as believer's remorse at having been seduced by all a tolerant forward-looking civilization has to offer, in one irrational destructive act atones for an entire life of ignoring an embarrassment of diktats from an intolerant, misogynous, prudish deity and his equally intolerant, misogynous, prudish henchman and gain instant access to Paradise.
This belief in the atonement property of one's own blood shed in Allah's Name is undoubtedly a root cause of domestic terrorism.
June 16 - Obama and Clinton and Doing the Work of Terrorists
In blistering attack, Obama denounces Trump’s anti-Muslim fervour
President Barack Obama scathingly disparaged Donald Trump on Tuesday, saying the Republican seeking to succeed him in the White House was whipping up anti-Muslim fervour that betrays the core values of American democracy and is “doing the terrorists’ work for them.”
Paul Koring, Globe and Mail, June 15, 2016
Not putting the blame where it belongs is also doing the work of the extremists.
In the words of a former jihadist:
When I was still a member of what is probably best termed the British Jihadi Network, a series of semi-autonomous British Muslim terrorist groups linked by a single ideology, I remember how we used to laugh in celebration whenever people on TV proclaimed that the sole cause for Islamic acts of terror like 9/11, the Madrid bombings and 7/7 was Western foreign policy.
By blaming the government for our actions ... [they] did our propaganda work for us. More important, they also helped to draw away any critical examination from the real engine of our violence: Islamic theology."
Hassan Butt, The Observer, My plea to fellow Muslims
At the beginning of the week Clinton, on CNN's "New Day" finally said the words, and more; the more including the flippant manner she said them:
And it mattered we got bin Laden, not what name we called him. I have clearly said we -- whether you call it radical jihadism or radical Islamism, I'm happy to say either. I think they mean the same thing.
The media has made a lot about this apparent willingness to now place some responsibility for the massacre on a radical ideology; example, David Shribman of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in "In wake of Orlando tragedy, political divide in U.S. campaign widens" picked up by the Globe and Mail.
But Ms. Clinton, as careful in her language as Mr. Trump is impulsive in his, clearly set herself apart in a different way as well; she pointedly began to use the phrase “radical Islamism,” which in the context of the terror attack may seem thoroughly unremarkable but which in the context of the current presidential campaign is a major departure.
"Pointedly" underlines a grasp of the issue. Ms. Clinton demonstrated no dept of understanding in her dismissive response,
Jihadism is about a war of expansion and is by definition "radical":
Jihad: In law, according to general doctrine and in historical tradition, the jihad consists of military action with the object of the expansion of Islam and, if need be, of its defence. Encyclopedia of Islam
Islamism is a violent ideology with jihad as its instrument for propagation. They are complementary not identical. The war against extremism cannot be won with leaders who do not appreciate this distinction.
I was taken to task by a reader for making those observations.
There are over one billion Muslims in the world. Surely you're not suggesting they are all violent. Groups like ISIS have political motivations but use religion as a recruiting tool for their twisted beliefs.
Of course not, but the ideology matters, and none seem willing to address the root cause, in part because they do not, like Clinton has demonstrated, have a clue having never read, it is obvious, the relatively short violent hate-filled document that lauds the superior religion just like Mein Kampf lauded the superior race, and we know what that led to.
Theology i.e. ideology matters as does the means to make it triumph:
61:9 It is He Who sent His Messenger forth with the guidance and the religion of truth, to make it triumph over every religion ...
Allah's Apostle said, "I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror ..."

CNN April 23, 2015
Can you blame the wives of believers for not trying to stop their husband from doing what for them is not worth it, by informing the authorities and risking an eternity burning in Hell.
It's not only attempting to discourage a husband from murdering the innocent in the name of Allah that will land a wife in Hell. If the husband is unhappy with a wife during their life together in the here-and-now, for whatever reason, it’s into the blazing Fire with her.
Last, but not least, should her husband do anything to elicit Allah’s displeasure she will share the blame and will be joining him in Hell.
June 14 - The Future: Microterrorism
A suspected Islamist attacker stabbed a French police commander to death outside his home and later killed his companion, a policewoman, in an attack claimed by Islamic State and denounced by the government as “an abject act of terrorism”.
PARIS — Reuters June 13, 2016
Microterrorism on a massive scale may turn out to be the most effective terror weapon of all. It's terror with only a cutting edge or a thrusting point; terror of the type which led the Prophet to boast that he had been made victorious through terrorism.
Allah's Apostle said, "I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror ..." Bukhari 52.220
Most children born into a traditional Muslim household, through observations and the performance of rituals where animals are horribly slaughtered, grow up comfortable killing with a knife.
This familiarity was evident in Islamic State being able to use raw recruits to casually behead perhaps thousands of captives with only a knife at their disposal.
It's not enough to teach children how to kill animals, a skill which can easily be transferred to human. You have to overcome in humans a resistance to killing one's own kind.
That is where the Koran comes in.
A child being conditioned to become a cold-blooded killer holding a sign demanding that those who "insult" an illiterate from the Dark Ages who would have us believe he was on speaking term with God tasked with delivering His ultimate message for mankind.
June 13 - Clinton and the Massacre: Professor Bates Wants an Explanation
Clinton was praised in the media following the nightclub massacre for declining "to take Mr. Trump’s bait by referring to 'radical Islam'".
My response was that Clinton's unwillingness to face the reality of Islamic terrorism may cost her the election. For a majority it is the overwhelming clear and present danger. They are looking for a Churchill, even a caricature of one to tackle what they perceive as an existential threat, not a Chamberlain.
A detractor who goes by the name of Professor Bates demanded an explanation:
What does that mean? I.e., how is she not taking it seriously? Or put another way, what should she be doing differently? Do tell.
It is as if she had bought into the canard that Islam is The Religion of Peace. This would explain her reluctance to associate the religion with the atrocities committed by believers.
Taking the threat seriously would mean dealing with the root cause instead of spouting the usual platitudes that have been the staple of politicians in denial since George W. Bush first used and popularized the expression The Religion of Peace to absolve Islam of any responsibility for 9/11.
Bush junior did it, to quote the then Chairman of the British National Party “to avoid an explosion of hostility against Muslims by leaving the impression that the central message of the Koran is all about peace and love, that Islam is Christianity with a towel on its head."
What is Clinton's excuse?
June 12 - The Orlando Nightclub Massacre
Twenty minutes into the shooting, Omar Mateen called 911 to pledge his allegiance to Islamic State. What he did was in keeping with the terrorist state's exhortation to kill them wherever you find them. That they were unbelievers and gay made them a doubly attractive kill in Allah's Cause.
A regular mosque attendee, three days before the massacre he made the predictable visit, to strengthen, it is assumed, his resolve to slaughter the patrons of a nightclub catering to those Allah genetically predisposed to committing what He damns as an abomination.
29:45 Recite what has been revealed to you of the Book and perform the prayer. Prayer surely forbids the foul act and abomination. Allah’s remembrance is greater and Allah knows what you do.
This may be another case of someone claiming to submit to His Will then ignoring what His designated spokesperson said were the rightful punishment for those suspected of having committed the foul act.
The Holy Prophet (S) has prescribed Three methods of dealing with the situation (male sodomy), you may choose any one of the three deaths - by having the arms and feet tied and thrown from the cliff, being beheaded or being burnt alive.
From Homosexuality - Crime and Punishment
This is the Month of Great Heat when fasting and immersion in "the Book" can lead to an increased desire to rid the world of people "given to excess" by whatever means at your disposal, as witnessed by the daily massacres since the start of the holy month of Ramadan.
7:80 And [remember] Lot when he said to his people: “Do you commit indecencies which no one in the whole world committed before you?”
7:81 “You approach men instead of women lustfully; you are rather a people given to excess.”
Mr. Seddique said that his son got angry when he saw two men kissing in Miami a couple of months ago and thinks that may be related to the shooting.
Trump has called for a ban on Muslim immigration to the United States. To weed out gays' mortal enemies a simpler solution would be to follow the Dutch example.
In 2006, to counter a rise in "holy" homophobia, the Netherlands decided to assess if potential immigrants from mainly Islamic countries would be troubled by the more liberal attitudes they would encounter by requiring them to view a film in which two men are shown kissing in a meadow.
Opponents said that this was a subterfuge to limit Muslim immigration, which is telling in itself, and the practice may have been discontinued.

BBC June 8
Honour killings of daughters under the Sharia i.e. God's Law is allowed if their behavior has adversely impacted your ghira e.g. Shafia Honour Killings – pre-marital sex, proven or un-proven, being the gold-standard for their immediate cold-blooded murder.
The killing of brides who marry for love may have more to do with revenge for depriving their families of the expected return on investment that comes from their fathers marrying them off to the highest bidder.
A marriage in Islam is not a sacrament but a contract. The marriage is usually an arranged affair and, not unlike arranged marriages of the Middle Ages, the primary consideration is what benefits in wealth and influence will accrue to the contracting parties i.e. the families of the bride and groom.
Dec 10, 2015 - Crying Out Loud
Last night, a French channel showed an interview with a hacker, whose identity of course was kept hidden, who had intercepted a conversation between a suicide bomber and his handler.
The most pathetic and moving part of the recorded exchange was that the soon to be dead young man was crying while his handler calmly assured him that he would soon be in Paradise where he, in his final words of encouragement, said he would soon be joining him, Allah willing.
The crying voice is now believed to be that of the Tunisian bus bomber.
Another cry (no pun intended) for a dialogue on the Koran,
June 7 - The Killing that Made "Holy Month" an Oxymoron
Istanbul bomb attack on police bus 'kills 11'
Turkey's Foreign Minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, said the attackers were "cold-heartedly" exploding bombs on the holy Muslim month of Ramadan, which is in its second day.
BBC June 7, 2016
Islam’s so-called holy months are a vestige of pre-Islamic Arabia’s Sacred Months. Then, all fighting on the Peninsula stopped and life was celebrated through worship, song, dance and poetry. But, that all changed with the killing of the first unbeliever, a farmer on his way to market by the name of Amr-ben-al Hadra’mi.
Allah, after somber reflection, with His latest and greatest spokesperson challenged to justify the cold-blooded murder, changed the prohibition against taking a life during a sacred interlude and holy months got a lot less holy.
Associating murder with what is ostensibly holy more than corrupted the meaning of sacred months. For many, where the new religion was concerned, holy became synonymous with evil.
June 1 - The Real Obscenity
A Pakistani woman who was set on fire for refusing a marriage proposal has died of her injuries.
In February, Punjab province, where the attack on Miss Sadaqat happened, passed a landmark law criminalising all forms of violence against women. However, more than 30 religious groups, including all the mainstream Islamic political parties, threatened to launch protests if the law was not repealed.
Religious groups have equated women's rights campaigns with promotion of obscenity.
BBC June 1, 2016
The real obscenity is women advocating for a religion whose vilification of their sex promotes such a warped understanding of human rights.
What may have prompted Punjab province to criminalize "all forms of violence against women" is the rise in honour killings following the introduction of Sharia law in the 1980s. Nearly 1,100 women were reported murdered last year in Pakistan ("many more cases go unreported" under the honour pretense according to the country's independent Human Rights Commission.
Under Islamic law, a man can assuage his wounded pride by murdering the cause of his discombobulation and only have to pay the equivalent of a fine i.e. blood-money to the family of the person he murdered should they seek redress under God's law, the meaning of Sharia. This payment cannot exceed the equivalent of 100 camels, that would be un-Islamic said the Prophet; for murdered daughters it is usually much smaller, 50 camels or less.
Talion Law and Setting the Price of a Human Life
May 28 - What condoms and coitus interruptus have in common and why both are haram
Pakistani authorities have banned all broadcast advertisements for contraceptives.
The regulator, Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra), said there had been public complaints that they prompted curiosity in "innocent children".
BBC May 28, 2016
Surely, commercials, not unlike those for male erectile dysfunction e.g. the empty room with the television blaring and nobody watching are safe for children. And, any question a child might ask can easily be dismissed without referring to conception of which, Muslim children, who are expected to have recited the Koran in its entirety by the age of seven, are fully aware, even if it is a somewhat cockeyed understanding considering the Source.
The advertising ban, of course, has nothing to do with avoiding corrupting innocence and everything to do with the pervasive confounding example of the Prophet.
God's Messenger cautioned holy warriors against practicing coitus interruptus when rapping their captives. It was better for them not to withdraw before ejaculation and interfere with Allah's prerogative to create babies.
Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: that while he was sitting with Allah's Apostle he said, "O Allah's Apostle! We get female captives as our share of booty, and we are interested in their prices, what is your opinion about coitus interruptus?"
The Prophet said, "Do you really do that? It is better for you not to do it. No soul that which Allah has destined to exist, but will surely come into existence."
The Prophet's example, sayings and opinions along with the Koran are the basis of Islamic Law.
God's Messenger's insistence that nothing interfere with conception even during a god-sanctioned sexual assault have encouraged "more conservative Islamic leaders [to] openly campaign against the use of condoms or other birth control methods, thus making population planning in many countries ineffective."
May 25 - Seduced by Scriptural Sadism
What if you could re-create the sadism that is a hallmark of Allah's Hereafter in the here-and now?
Your run-of-the mill holy warrior can only do so much. Doctors are another matter, and they are not immune to the seductive sadism which saturates the Muslim Holy Book.
Given the opportunity, trained medical personnel can do a very good approximation of the Almighty at his pitiless, cruelest best.
And what is Allah's sadistic tour de force?
4:56 Those who have disbelieved Our Signs, We shall surely cast them into the Fire; every time their skins are burnt, We will replace them by other skins, so that they might taste the punishment. Allah indeed is Mighty and Wise!
Issam Abuanza, 37, is a doctor who left his family in the UK in 2014 to join Islamic State in Syria.
Keep revelation 4:56 in mind as your read the following:
On social media, Dr Abuanza has said he wished that a Jordanian pilot burnt alive by IS had taken longer to die … I would've liked for them to burn him extremely slowly and I could treat him so we could torch him once more.
On his Facebook page he is pictured wearing doctors' scrubs and carrying a gun in a holster. He smiles as he raises his finger in the air - a symbolic gesture to represent the oneness of God that is commonly seen in the iconography of Islamic extremism.
Another image shows him in combat fatigues, cradling an automatic rifle and reading the Koran.
BBC News May 24, 2016
Dr. Abuanza, a poster child for the banality of evil, was trained to heal and relieve suffering, not to torture and murder and he could not resist.
Imagine the Koran's impact on impressionable young minds who are expected to have mouthed, if not memorized the entire hateful sadistic liturgy by the time they are seven years old.
A (UK) mother who beat her seven-year-old son to death when he failed to memorize passages from the Koran has been jailed for life and must serve a minimum of 17 years.
BBC, January 7, 2013
A very common ceremony practiced throughout most of the Muslim world called Khatmi-Qur’an celebrates a child’s first full reading of Allah’s Revelations.
Children who should be reading Babar the Elephant (or Cinderella) are instead compelled to read the most sadistic, pitiless passages ever imagined.
When they grow up they too will be capable of doing the most sadistic, cruel, pitiless acts imaginable and many will do so, like the doctor shown here reading his Koran and dreaming of the day he will be able to honour his Creator by emulating His abject cruelty as only he can.
It bears repeating; we need an honest, straightforward Dialogue on the Koran.

Doug Saunders, in "Sweden’s rape crisis isn’t what it seems" (the Globe and Mail, May 14), while denying that there is a crisis, informs us that most perpetrators and their victims are foreign-born:
What also stands out is that almost all the victims of these crimes – especially sex crimes – are also foreign-born.
This may be the surest sign that, where the crime is sexual assault, the Khalwat and retribution may be largely to blame if the French experience is any indication.
Rotherham may be a localized variation of this phenomenon which may be more common than is admitted to by countries that have not been able to assimilate a large influx of immigrants raised on the Koran.
Then, there is the new troubling Cologne Strain where targets for sexual assault were mainly non-believing females.

Saudi shake-up moves kingdom down new path ... The plan, known as Saudi Vision 2030, is intended as a guide for the country’s development. It aims, in part, to reduce Saudi Arabia’s heavy dependence on oil ...
The New York Times, May 7, 2016
The Hijaz is the so-called Holy Land of Islam. The area comprises most of the western part of modern-day Saudi Arabia and is centered on Mecca and Medina. As custodian of these cities, the Saudis are in control of the metaphorical gold mine, a mine which will never run out of gold and whose production increases with every newcomer who makes the religion of peace his or her religion.
Most of us are aware that every able-bodied, financially capable Muslim adult must perform the Hajj at least once during his or her lifetime. It is not a coincidence that one of the largest shopping centers in the world, the Abraj Al Bait Complex with its five stories, 4000 stores shopping mall is within walking distance (300 meters) from the holiest shrine in Islam, the Ka'ba.
Safely accommodating millions more pilgrims at the Hajj
The biggest money maker for the Saudis may turn out to be the year-around attraction of Medina where they are spending an estimated 6 billion dollars on the construction of the world's largest building, a mosque capable of accommodating 1.6 million worshipers.
The attraction of Medina for the believers is not only the Prophet's tomb, but also, as revealed by its occupant, "One prayer in my Mosque (Medina) is better than one thousand prayers in any other mosque excepting Al-Masjid-AI-Haram (the Grand Mosque of Mecca)."
Expect plans to replace oil revenues to include spending even more money on madrassas and mosques around the world to get more converts to come to the Hijaz with its privileged prayer places and incidental shopping venues.

April 13 - Transforming Children into Mass- Murderers
Boko Haram’s use of child suicide bombers soaring, UN says
Globe and Mail, Apr. 12, 2016
The process of making male children raised on the Koran into mass murderers is actually quite simple, you play on the fantasy of little boys of being all grown up. You tell them that, literally, in a puff of smoke they can become a man if they are willing to help Allah get rid of the bad people.
It was narrated from Muaadh ibn Jabal that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: "The people of Paradise will enter Paradise hairless, beardless with their eyes anointed with kohl, aged thirty or thirty-three years."
al-Tirmidhi 2545 .
Turning little girls into mass murderers is slightly more complicated and brutal; but it is a challenge that more and more holy warriors appear willing to take on, with little girls outnumbering little boys as suicide bombers.
The transformation usually begins with the rape of god-fearing girls by fighters in Allah's Cause. It is meant to make them feel a heart-breaking guilt for having brought dishonour on their family and shame so intense that death seems preferable. But, that is not all!
Rape makes a shamble of a young girl's fantasy of marrying her prince charming. What nice young man would have her as his beloved bride now that she is no longer a virgin?
Only Allah, she is told, can now make her dream come true. Not in the here-and-now, but in the Hereafter, if she has the courage to kill herself and take as many as possible of His enemies with her..
April 9 - Boys Killing Boys
'He was a child and came to kill children’: ISIL suicide bomber kills 43 — most of them boys — at soccer match ... A total of 43 people died [on the evening of March 25, in Asriya, Iraq] — 29 of them boys younger than 17 who had either been participating in the match or were watching their friends play.
The bomber also was a teenager, no more than 15 or 16. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant claimed responsibility, saying the target was a gathering of the Shiite paramilitaries.
Washington Post, April 8, 2016
The Prophet set 15 as the age a male could join the ranks of holy warriors and kill and be killed in Allah's way with the killing of Abu Jahl by two teenagers.
Conversely, if the boys who died were 15 and over and Shiites i.e. heretics, under Sharia law they were legitimate targets for slaughter: .
Under Sharia Law, not only is what God's Messenger said and did a precedent, but also what was done in his presence, of which he did not disapprove such as determining if a boy is a candidate for slaughter by checking for the growth of pubic hair:
I was among the captives of Banu Qurayzah. They examined us, and those who had begun to grow hair (pubes) were killed, and those who had not were not killed. I was among those who had not grown hair.
April 5 - The Tip of the Iceberg

Those 400 trained fighters are the proverbial tip of the iceberg. What the Europeans should be worried about is the tens of thousands of young men who came over seeking improved economic conditions or to further Allah's Cause and have been seduced by Western ways.
At one point in their lives, they will be reminded that Hell is waiting and many will seek to atone for behaving like kuffars by joining the ranks of holy warriors and killing as many of them as they can before they are gunned down or torn to bits by a suicide bomb and gain instant access to Paradise.
Jihad as Penance
April 2 - Mecca in the Crosshairs II
Barack Obama urges global action to combat nuclear terrorism threat. Speaking at the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, Mr. Obama said nuclear terrorism was a persistent threat to the world …
Globe and Mail, April 1
A somewhat drastic solution to the threat of the holy warrior with the BOMB, Mecca in the Crosshairs, I posted almost a year ago. The question remains, however, what is to stop a holy warrior with an extra BOMB or two, after Mecca has been incinerated in retaliation for a terrorist nuclear attack on the United States, from doing the same to the Vatican.
Islam is, at its core, a ritualistic materialistic religion. This is reflected in what defines it as a religion, it's so called Pillars of Islam (four of which are about worshipping a god who cannot be worshipped enough and the zakat) and how it rewards those who seek via the sword to make this world that of Allah exclusively.
Narrated Abu Huraira:
I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "The example of a Mujahid (Muslim fighter) in Allah's Cause — and Allah knows better who really strives in His Cause—is like a person who fasts and prays continuously. Allah guarantees that He will admit the Mujahid in His Cause into Paradise if he is killed, otherwise He will return him to his home safely with rewards and war booty."
Christianity is in the hearts and mind, and what defines it as a religion are the Ten Commandments, six of which are moral imperatives, with the other four about worshipping God and not requiring any religious infrastructure or divinely ordained process to fulfil.
The believers could destroy every church on earth, but unless they kill or convert every Christian on earth, they will not succeed in eradicating those whom Allah considers perverts for their associating a son with His Magnificence (9:30, 5:75) from His world, as He expects them to do, sooner or later.
Le Point (France's Time Magazine equivalent) fears that we are in the early stages of an ultimate confrontation which will decide whose vision for humanity will prevail, Jesus or Muhammad.
Islam's religious infrastructure and its immutable rituals which are meant to transform ordinary men, women and children into committed believers and cold-blooded executioners when needed, are both its strength and its Achilles' heel.
It's true that people who fight and die for other than hedonistic rewards will find it hard to think strategically about what the other considers sacred; but, with not only Christian but every lesser believer's life hanging in the balance, is there any other choice.
March 25 - MAD in a World Gone Mad
‘I don’t rule out anything’: Trump says he would bomb ISIL with nuclear weapons if he wins presidency, The Telegraph, March 24
The 9/11 hijackers expected a medium-size harem as reward for killing three thousand innocent men, women and children.
What kind of out-of-this-world reward could the ultimate suicide bomber; the suicide bomber with the BOMB expect? How could he resist setting the world on fire.
The only experience we have in avoiding annihilation in the atomic age is the Mutual Assured Destruction doctrine, MAD for short. You try to annihilate me, I annihilate you, we annihilate each other. The ultimate pyrrhic victory.
MAD worked because people on both side of the nuclear standoff valued their lives, the lives of their children and grand-children above all else. Killing your enemy, only for you and your family to be melted in an atomic fire in a retaliatory attack was not an option.
Can MAD work its magic in a world where religious sociopaths with a death wish have the BOMB? I don't thing so. It may be back to square one.

Islamic State video shows militants destroying Iraqi antiquities ... dating back to the 7th century BC
The Globe and Mail, Feb 27
Islam considers paintings and sculptures from and after "the time of ignorance", the time before Islam, that even remotely resembles a person or an animal blasphemous, for this is considered an act of creation and therefore an affront to the Creator of all things.
Under Sharia law these blasphemies must be obliterated if there are no people within the vicinity who revere these precious reminders of who we were.
Leaders of the faithful, the caliphs, in pursuing Allah's jihad against the unbelievers, beginning with the Prophet Muhammad, have always taken the long view and it has served Islam well. Until the Saudis took a bulldozer to history, Muslims had proven themselves excellent caretakers of treasures of antiquity for more than a thousand years.
The Saudis' Frankenstein creation Islamic State has exceeded its licence to destroy in its haste to destroy these distracting treasures of antiquity until Islam is triumphant everywhere and few will have any objections – we will all be Muslims – to the systematic obliteration of what Allah and His Messenger consider ignominious creations of depraved minds.
In praise of Muslims who kill and die on our behalf
When Syrian forces first withdrew from Palmyra in the face of an assault by Islamic State, they were criticized in the West for not fighting, and dying if necessary, to protect precious Palmyra.
We are asking believers to risk their lives to defend what their religion says is of no consequence but what we consider invaluable, but not valuable enough to risk Western lives to protect it for future generations.
It is not only for our heritage we are not willing to die for, but our coreligionists. We expect the Iraqis, the Shiites and some untrustworthy rebels to topple the Assad regime and replace him as protector of those whom Allah considers perverts for claiming He has a son.
5:75 The Messiah, son of Mary, was only a Messenger before whom other Messengers had gone; and his mother was a godly woman. They both ate [earthly] food. Look how We make clear Our Revelations to them; then look how they are perverted!
We are very lucky to have believers who are willing to die to save our brethren in faith and examples of our "ignorant" past. The more reason to refrain from criticizing those who fail in what we consider their duty to kill and die on our behalf when we are unwilling to face the same risks.
March 23 - Death, Death, Glorious Death
Brussels Airport and Metro station bombed, Dead: 31+
3:143 You were yearning for death before you actually met it. Now you have seen it and you are beholding it.
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
The Prophet said, "Nobody who enters Paradise likes to go back to the world even if he got everything on the earth, except a Mujahid who wishes to return to the world so that he may be martyred ten times because of the dignity he receives (from Allah)."
Only a death cult, or the pathologically delusional, would praise killing yourself while killing others as an act dignified by God.

March 21 - The Last Days of the Prophet
The Last Days of Muhammad (my translation of Les derniers jours de Muhammad) by Tunisian scholar Hela Ouardi is a new and controversial book on the death of God's proclaimed last and greatest spokesperson.
In an interview she gave Le Point, France's Time magazine equivalent, she said that non-Muslim sources, writing at the time of the man' death, recorded he died in Gaza, not Medina as in the traditions on which I based my account of his death.
Ms. Ouardi goes on to explain that his alleged death in Medina may have been to legitimize Abu Bakr's accession as leader of the believers i.e. caliph, instead of the one whom the Shiites claim was Muhammad's rightful heir, his son-in-law Ali.
One of Bakr's first act after being elected caliph by a coterie of Muhammad's companions while Ali, it is said, was busy making funeral arrangement, was to deprive both Alí and his wife Fatima (and the wives of Muhammad) of their heritance, including her father's interest in the Jewish farms of Khaybar.
Fatima would press Bakr to return what was lawfully theirs to her and her husband. According to the author she was beaten to death by Bakr and Umar who would succeed Bakr as caliph.
Under Koranic law i.e. talion law, this should have led to a demand for retribution and/or compensation; unless Bakr and Umar had done Ali a favour.
Ali's father- in-law had forbidden him from marrying any other women for it would displease his daughter. Her death meant he was free to marry again, two, three or four women at one time just like every other believing man.
Ouardi also references the non-battle of Tabuk where she claims Muhammad, shortly before he died, suffered his first and only defeat at the hands of the Byzantines.
The Koran, which is to be trusted more than the traditions when they differ, makes no such admission. Yes, Muhammad did lead a large expedition to Tabuk where he expected to meet the Byzantines in battle; but, they never showed up, being preoccupied with whom they considered the greater threat, the Persians.
Ouardi's book won't be available in Canada until mid-April at the earliest. I look forward to comparing notes and getting back to you.
March 17 - When it is disgusting not to discriminate!
Trudeau, before his election as Prime Minister, said it was "disgusting" of the Conservative government to discriminate in favour of people most likely to be killed by Islamic State e.g. Christians in their Syrian refugee selection process.
If the Europeans had discriminated against the hundreds of thousands of able-bodied young men looking for better economic conditions in favour of families with young children, you would not have the heart-breaking spectacle of fathers and mothers with crying terrified children in their arms trying to cross hastily erected barriers; and of course you would not have to worry about young women being sexually assaulted as they were in Cologne.
March 12 -Unlearning the Koran
The international community must address the challenge of rehabilitating children indoctrinated by Islamic State (IS), a new report says.
The Quilliam Foundation and the Romeo Dallaire Child Soldiers Initiative say children are taught extreme values and desensitised to violence from birth.
The current generation of IS fighters see children as better and more lethal fighters than themselves because they have not been corrupted by exposure to other values or ideologies ...
"Schools and the education system are central to shaping the hearts and minds of the next generation," the report says.
Boys adhere to a rigid curriculum, where drawing, history, philosophy and social studies - considered by IS to be "the methodology of atheism" - have been removed. They must instead memorise verses of the Koran.
New strategy needed for rehabilitating IS child soldiers BBC, March 7, 2016
If learning the Koran is central to the transformation of children into cold-blooded killers, then unlearning the Holy Book of Holy Warriors is the solution.
An impossible solution perhaps, but you can reduce the book's nefarious influence by limiting access to madrassas and following the Chinese example.
At the very least, we should talk about why the Koran is so good at what it does.
March 7 -Who you gonna save?
The UK is to send warships as part of a NATO mission to stop people smugglers ferrying migrants from Turkey to the EU.
BBC March 6, 2016
The Koran offers some protection for believers from homicidal co-religionists such as those found in the employ of Islamic State.
4:93 As he who kills a believer intentionally will, as punishment, be thrown into Hell, dwelling in it forever; and Allah will be angry with him, curse him and prepare for him a dreadful punishment.
This is not the case for Christians whom Allah considers perverts for claiming He shares power with a son.
5:75 The Messiah, son of Mary, was only a Messenger before whom other Messengers had gone; and his mother was a godly woman. They both ate [earthly] food. Look how We make clear Our Revelations to them; then look how they are perverted!
In the search for a solution to the exodus of migrants from Syria and Libya we should not forget that it is Christians who at the greater risk of being killed for their beliefs and that stopping human smuggling without substituting some other means for them to escape Islamic State is unconscionable.
March 2 - Cultural Genocide
The international court in the Hague, for the first time, will be prosecuting an individual for the crime of "cultural destruction".
Ahmad al-Faqi al-Mahdi stands accused of "orchestrating the destruction of nine ancient shrines and a mosque door with pickaxes and iron bars after the historic city of Timbuktu was captured by jihadis in 2012."
The destruction of everything that might distract from the worship of a god who cannot be worshiped enough is implied in the Koran's pervasive and insidious condemnation of idols and their worshippers.
However, it is in the sayings and example of the Prophet, the hadiths where you find much of the impetus for the wanton destruction of cultural treasures and priceless antiquities.
More Destruction; Less Creation
On his deathbed God's Messenger specifically singled out tombs:
Narrated Aisha and Ibn Abbas:
On his death-bed Allah's Apostle put a sheet over his-face and when he felt hot, he would remove it from his face. When in that state (of putting and removing the sheet) he said, "May Allah's Curse be on the Jews and the Christians for they build places of worship at the graves of their prophets." (By that) he intended to warn (the Muslim) from what they (i.e. Jews and Christians) had done.
Another reason for the eradication of what Islam considers blasphemies, and why you won’t care.
February 24 - Hard does not even begin to describe it!
A 16-year-old Swedish girl rescued from Islamic State (IS) militants in Iraq has described life under the jihadist group's rule as "really hard".
The teenager told an Iraqi Kurdish TV station that she was duped into going to Syria by her boyfriend last May.
She was rescued by Kurdish special forces near the city of Mosul a week ago, Kurdish authorities say ...
In the interview with Kurdistan 24, the girl said she had met her boyfriend in 2014 after dropping out of school in south-western Sweden.
"First it was good together but then he started to look at Isis videos and speak about them and stuff like that," she said in English.
"Then he said he wanted to go to Isis and I said 'OK, no problem', because I did not know what Isis meant or what Islam was - nothing."

Feb 4 - A Celebration of Self-Mutilation
Last January, fifteen year old Qaiser was in a crowd celebrating the Prophet's birth at a mosque in a village in Pakistan.
A cleric, having worked the crowd into a state of frenzy shouted, "Who among you is a follower of Muhammad?"
Everyone raised their hands. "Who among you doesn't believe in the teachings of the Holy Prophet? Raise your hands!" he then bellowed.
The young Qaiser, thinking he was being asked if he believed in the teachings of the Holy Prophet, raised his hand. He was the only one to do so.
"BLASPHEMER" screamed the cleric!
The boy then ran home, which was only a few hundred yards from the mosque, and cut off the hand that had blasphemed God's Messenger, put it on a platter and bleeding profusely, returned to the gathering.
A birthday celebration then turned into a celebration of the boy who had cut off his hand as a show of love for the Prophet.
Weird does not began to describe it!

Jan 18 - A Pope's Perilous Portrayal
Pope Francis denounces all religiously inspired violence carried out by Christians, Jews and Muslims,
Associated Press, January 16
Whether you are for one or the other we have to stop pretending. There are only two great, in terms of numbers, monotheistic religions and that is all that matters. And these two towering religions are anathema to each other, and to pretend otherwise is promoting a dangerous misunderstanding.
Muslims know much about the Gospels and the Torah for the Koran came after, and the Koran has a lot to say about both; and where the Gospels are concerned, not much good from a Christian's perspective.
Christians, on the other hand, know little about the Koran.
They have only themselves to blame for this reckless ignorance, encouraged to remain clueless of the other's salvific theology by spiritual leaders, like the Pope, who perhaps for self-serving reason would have them believe that because both share a belief in the one god, they both respect the same spiritual, moral and ethical boundaries.
The Way: Jesus or Muhammad?
Jan 12 - No Cash! No Problem!
It has been reported that U.S. jets bombed an Islamic State warehouse full of cash.
Unfortunately, that is not Islamic State's main currency and what makes it attractive to young holy warriors for whom war and the promise of instant booty gratification is preferable, and less feared, then spending time seducing the object of their affection.
Jan 11 - Copping a Feel in Cologne
Angela Merkel says Germany has lost control of the refugee crisis amid public anger over Cologne sex attacks
The Telegraph Jan 11, 2016
German leaders condemned a “new dimension” of crime after scores of women reported being sexually assaulted as they passed though a group of about 1,000 men during New Year’s Eve celebrations in downtown Cologne.
Associated Press - Jan 5, 2016
Allah revealed, in His Koran, that men, when in the presence of women and girls not fully cloaked will experience a Pavlovian-like reaction and want to hump the owner of what Allah calls "their finery" then and there.
The German government is largely responsible for creating a situation were large number of sexually mature males would inevitably come into contact with vastly out-numbered females and seek to understand with their hands what their religion has denied their eyes until their wedding night. Even the Hajj is not immune from such juvenile behaviour.
It will be harder still on the Germans. Many of these young men will feel remorse, not for assaulting the women and girls whom, from their perspective, were asking for it; but for being drunk in front of unbelievers and thereby embarrassing Allah by inviting scorn on His perfect religion. Some will undoubtedly seek His forgiveness through martyrdom, and then, perhaps, the lesson will be learned.
Jan 8 - Sons killing parents, parents killing offsprings – welcome to Sharialand
Islamic State militant 'executes own mother' in Raqqa,
BBC. Jan 8
At one time Allah expected you to be unconditionally kind to your parents.
17:23 Your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him and to be kind to your parents. If either of them or both reach old age with you, do not say to them “Fie”, nor tell them off, but say to them kind words.
17:24 And lower to them the wing of humility out of mercy and say: “Lord have mercy on them, as they took care of me when I was a child.”
Then He had a change of heart (remember in the Koran there is no timeline, verse numbering is not an indication of when it was received.)
9:113 It is not for the Prophet and those who believe to ask for forgiveness for the polytheists even if they are near relatives, after it becomes clear to [the believers] that they are the people of the Fire.
He would have even seen the Prophet's mother Amina burn in Hell, but made an exception for His favourite and greatest Messenger's mother when He saw him weeping over her tomb.
Allah changing his mind about unconditionally being kind to your parents is just one of more than two hundred revealed truths (immutable facts revealed to a mortal by a god) that a consensus of scholars agree were abrogated i.e. nullified or modified by other revealed truths such as the Verse of the Sword.
Children are expected to kill parents who deviate from the straight Path and parents their children if they fear they will abandon Islam later on in life.
There is no escape once you have joined the fraternity of those who submit to the Will of Allah; and for children born to believing parents, there is no choice.
