General Jack Keane (Ret) seems to think that a good Madison Avenue advertising campaign can deglamorize ISIS so that people don’t want to join up with it. Obviously, he knows nothing about Islam.
Ezra Levant interviews Michael Coren about his new book on the Muslim slaughter of Christians for which he is getting death threats from Muslims.
Unfortunately, Coren continues to think that he must also claim that “most Muslims are peaceful.”
Zakaria says, there is a problem within Islam. It’s not enough for Muslims to point out that these people do not represent the religion. They don’t. (Oh, yes they DO) Muslims need to take more active measures to (pretend to) protest these heinous acts.
When news flashed that a man had shot and killed a Canadian soldier in front of the War Memorial in Canada, what most people were wondering but not saying out loud was, is it another Muslim? And it was. As was the man who ran over two Canadian soldiers in Quebec, Martin Rouleau Couture. As was Zale Thompson who attacked four police officers in Queens, New York, also this week. Not to mention the Muslim convert in Oklahoma who beheaded a white Christian grandmother at work a few weeks ago.
Canadian military reservist Nathan Cirillo was killed at gunpoint this week by a jihadist gunman in his nation’s capital, leaving behind a loving family and several adopted dogs for which loved ones say he harbored a deep devotion.
Breitbart (h/t Jim Y) Those dogs, media sources report, remain waiting for Cirillo at his door, peering out his gate alongside makeshift memorials left for the fallen soldier. According to sources cited by the Daily Mail, Cirillo was known to be dedicated to helping dogs, owning two of his own and recently nursing a stray back to health.
Canada’s CTV News reports that two dogs were seen by passersby leaving flowers in Cirillo’s honor peeking through the gate of his home in Hamilton, Ontario.
Both sources note that Cirillo’s Instagram account was filled with photos of his dogs, both those who lived with him and those he temporarily adopted to help them recover when found as strays or ill. He described them as “family.”
Cirillo leaves behind his mother and a 6-year-old son, who the Daily Mail notes Cirillo was raising on his own after the boy’s mother was “no longer in the picture.” It is believed that the boy, Marcus, will now live with his grandmother. Cirillo was 24.
Cirillo was a reservist in the Canadian military and was working his regular shift protecting the National War Memorial outside of the Canadian Parliament on Wednesday, when a man now identified as Michel Zehaf-Bibeau opened fire on him and attempted to enter the Parliament building. Cirillo was unarmed at the time.
Zehaf-Bibeau was eventually killed before causing any more harm by the Parliament’s Sergeant at Arms, 58-year-old Kevin Vickers. Vickers, a longtime veteran of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, is being widely celebrated in Canada as a hero; without his quick reaction to the crisis, Zehaf-Bibeau may have killed more innocents.
In an address to the nation, Prime Minister Stephen Harper honored Cirillo and made clear that he viewed Zehaf-Bibeau’s attack– widely believed to have been inspired by jihadist ideology– as a political attack “on our country, on our values…as a free and democratic people.” He added that Canada will continue to monitor individuals that appear at high-risk for jihadist activity; Zehaf-Bibeau himself was seen as a potential threat and had his passport delayed to prevent him from leaving the country, reports show.
More than 100,000 minority Muslims have fled from religious violence and retaliatory persecution in Myanmar. In recent weeks blowback against Rohingya Muslims in western Myanmar has led to a mass exodus, as at least 8,000 people fled to neighboring Thailand, Bangladesh, India and Nepal.
When you piss off a peaceful population like the Buddhists this much, you know you’ve gone too far.
IB Times Rohingya muslims escaped by boat, desperate to escape communal violence that broke out two years and has driven more than 100,000 muslims to flee across the borders to neighbouring countries.
Chris Lewa, director of the nonprofit Rohingya advocacy group Arakan Project, told the Associated Press that an average of 900 people per day are been piling into cargo ships moored off Rakhine state since the 15 October.
Lewa said that some Rohingya families have been told the huge cargo ships already have started arriving in Thailand. But Rohingya people who fled to Thailand still faced deportation and often fell victim to human traffickers.
Myanmar is a Buddhist nation of 50 million. But an estimated 1.3 million Rohingya muslims, who are known to have migrated from neighboring Bangladesh generations ago, live in the northern tip of Rakhine state.
The Rohingya have been denied Myanmar citizenship and have been attacked by Buddhist mobs, which has left hundreds dead and 140,000 trapped in camps. In recent months Myanmar authorities have begun an aggressive campaign to register Rohingya members as Bengalis, and label them as illegal migrants from Bangladesh.
Rohingya villagers told the Associated Press said that some of them were confined to their villages for weeks at a time for refusing to take part in the “verification” process; others said they had been beaten or arrested. Rakhine state authorities denied any knowledge of any abuse.
Every year Rohingya muslims travel from the Rakhine state to celebrate Eid al-Adha with family and friends. The estimates are similar to figures compiled by the UN – which has labeled the Rohingya one of the most persecuted religious minorities in the world – are that nearly double the number of people are leaving the area that the same period in 2013.
Buddhist woman explains what Muslims have done to her country and her own family:
Especially considering that two out the three countries (Guinea and Sierra Leone) with the worst Ebola outbreaks are Muslim-majority nations.
By Ahmad Al-Sarraf
Kuwait Times (h/t Carla W) The Ebola virus that is widespread in West Africa is considered very dangerous, bearing in mind that the world has known it since 1976, but it became more rampant lately and took thousands of lives in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone. All these nations lack the most basic of medical requirements in villages and remote areas, making the control of the spread of this virus something extremely hard.
The World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva announced that Ebola has become “a global health hazard”, and even America was not immune from it after a person infected with it arrived there.
Despite what is being said about the tough war between the world and this disease, the truth is that Western countries alone are concerned with eradicating it, as the number of its victims reached 4,000 lately, in addition to tens of thousands of infected people.
WHO said the number of victims of this epidemic will reach more than 20,000 if it is not brought under control before the end of next month, while the world does not have any cure or vaccine against this disease.
The strange (or normal) thing is that the only areas that are trying to do something to find a cure for this disease, or those who donated to affected countries where this epidemic paralyzed economies, or those who volunteered to work in their hospitals as medical teams or nurses are all from Western countries, European in particular, and Israel! For the rest of the countries, this may be expected from almost all of them, because they have their own calculations, interests, tremendous problems and views towards matters.
But what is the excuse of most Muslim and rich Arab countries in particular, that spend hundreds of millions of dinars on religious satellite channels of various sects that corrupt minds and attitudes? The answer is nothing, of course.
Rather these countries were the only ones who prayed against these countries that participated and contributed and its citizens took risks to eradicate this contagious epidemic or at least contain it.
They continue to pray against them from mosques pulpits, religious channels and school curricula, hoping that Allah burns the Westerners’ trees, orphans Israeli children, widows Danish women, dries up the wells of the Australians and eradicates the children of New Zealand! This is what we have got used to hear during the past few decades! But what will be the stand of those speakers and propagandists if this disease or suchlike reaches their countries.
Then who will come to our rescue? Is it not the West with its labs, doctors, nurses and volunteers? Do not be shameless and stop making such prayers while we are is this medical, scientific and industrial ineptness. Don’t most our governments feel ashamed for allowing those ignorants making such prayers as the answer. No, of course!

Stealing from the unbelievers is another form of jihad. Jihad is the duty of every Muslim.
A Turkish woman was arrested on suspicion of blasphemy and inciting religious hatred after stepping on the quran and posting the picture on Twitter.
Global Post (h/t Furkan T) The arrest came after Melih Gokcek, Ankara’s controversial mayor from the ruling Islamic-rooted Justice and Development Party (AKP), launched a criminal complaint against the 38-year-old-woman, who uses the Twitter handle @kedibiti (cat lice).
The woman, who has over 5,000 followers and describes herself as “an atheist who respects only humans,” allegedly shared a picture showing a pair of red high heels on a copy of the quran, Dogan news agency reported. In the Islamic world, the shoe has long been considered dirty and insulting because it is associated with the foot, the lowest part of the body.
The quran states that only those who are clean should touch the sacred text and it should not be placed on one’s lap or held below the waist. “I had warned this user called @kedibiti, who stepped on our sacred book, that I was chasing her and would have her arrested,” Gokcek wrote on Twitter. He confirmed that police had arrested her and seized her computer and cellphone.
Dogan said the woman was later released but Gokcek said he was suing “the infidel” for insulting religion, inciting religious hatred and threatening public peace. “It is time for justice now. No one has a right to insult our religion. We will never allow this to happen,” Gokcek wrote on Twitter.
Gokcek, who has held the top municipal job in the Turkish capital for 20 years, is a colourful but controversial figure known for his fiery comments on Twitter and derogatory remarks about women.
Pro-opposition Turkish secularists have long complained that freedom of expression, especially on religious issues, has been substantially eroded since the AKP came to power in 2002.
On Thursday FEMEN chapters in Turkey and abroad tweeted messages of support for the woman behind the @kedibiti account. The international feminist group is notorious for its provocative topless protests against restrictions on women and speech.

While we can only imagine the pain these parents must be feeling, trying to appeal to the ‘humanity’ in Muslim terrorists is like trying to teach a pig to sing.
UK Daily Mail Ed and Paula Kassig, the parents of ISIS hostage Abdul-Rahman Kassig attended an Islamic service today to pray for their only son after ISIS terrorists named him as the next beheading victim. Abdul-Rahman Kassig, 26, was called Peter before converting to Islam. His name, Abdul-Rahman, means ‘servant of the most merciful’.
They requested the service at the Islamic Society of North America in Plainfield, Indiana on Friday afternoon at 2pm. The service was multi-faith and honored the humanitarian work that Mr Kassig, a 26-year-old Indiana native, carried out in Syria before he was captured by the extremists last October. Mr Kassig was named by ISIS as their next victim following the beheading of British hostage Alan Henning in a video, posted online last Friday. Mrs Kassig will read messages from friends at the service.
They reached out to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi over social media. On Wednesday, the hostage’s family posted a message to Twitter pleading to the ISIS leader directly.
Edgar Hopida, from the Islamic Society, told WTHR that they were fearful for Mr Kassig but maintained a sense of hope. Mr Hopida said: ‘He’s one of our own. He’s a Hoosier. He’s also our brother in Islam, and so we want to support the family. We want to support Peter by having a short program to honor his work.’
Yazidi and Christian captives of ISIS tell how they were forced to convert or be killed, while young girls and women were raped and ordered into ‘marriages’ with ISIS jihadists where they became sex slaves.
Faleh Ghazi Albasman, 59, stabbed 24-year-old Mashael in the neck 13 times in the flat that they shared in Bournemouth, before picking up another blade and wounding himself in the stomach. He says he did it for “honor” because she disrespected him.
UK Daily Mail (h/t Maria J) After being taken to hospital, Albasman spoke Arabic to a surgeon, asking him what the penalty for honour killings were in Britain, before telling him: ‘it’s all about the honor’. The final straw came when he found her talking on a mobile phone, saying that her behavior had become ‘inappropriate in my culture’.
Albasman confessed that he was ‘boiling with anger’ when he attacked his daughter, saying she had been ‘disrespectful’ to him and told him ‘to go home.’ The court heard Albasman had come over to Bournemouth, Dorset, with Mashael in November 2013 to be her ‘chaperone’. She had started an English language course in the seaside town, just before she was found dead by paramedics on March 30 this year.
Kerry Maylin, prosecuting, said: ‘Mashael Albasman was killed due to multiple stab wounds, 13 in all, mainly concentrated on the neck. ‘He was arrested on suspicion of murder and taken to Southampton General Hospital due to his own injuries.
He was seen by medical staff including Mr Ahmed, a consultant surgeon who spoke Arabic. ‘Mr Ahmed told Mr Albasman that he would translate what he was told to the police and Mr Albasman said he understood and at one point told the surgeon “I have finished her”. ‘When asked who the “her” was, he said his daughter, Mashael. He asked Mr Ahmed a number of times “what’s the law here in context to murder for honor?”
‘He repeated on a number of occasions “tell them it’s honour, it’s about honor”. ‘He maintained in his final interview that Mashael had been very disrespectful, she had been talking on her phone and he maintained that was inappropriate in his culture.
‘He said “I was so angry. Boiling with anger. She said to me go back. A girl should not treat good men like me, decent men in this way”. ‘I hated Mashael, how dare she talk to me in that way. I was so angry, upset and mentally low. Mashael broke my heart. He agreed by killing her had preserved his honor.’
Muslim thugs tried to force to a Hindu boy to say ‘Islam is the greatest religion of all,’ and when he refused, they beat him with a belt.
Atrocities carried out by ISIS Islamic savages as well as a report linking the Oklahoma Muslim beheader to the Islamic Institute of Boston, has Talal Eid (photo right), imam of the Hub Religious Center, boohooing that it’s a “double hurt” for his faith because people are “abusing our religion.”
Boston Herald “Our situation is very bad,” said Imam Talal Eid. (Not nearly as bad as the woman who just had her head cut off) “Every time the word ISIS is mentioned, and it’s mentioned hundreds of times, Islam is being pushed into the middle of that. They are abusing Islam. The Islamic State (ISIS) is not Islam.” (HAH! That ship sailed a long time ago, buddy)
Eid’s comments come on the heels of reports that a “resident scholar” here in Boston was previously the leader of the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City — formerly attended by Alton Nolen, the man accused of beheading a co-worker in Oklahoma Thursday. “Religion has nothing to do with that,” said Eid of the Oklahoma beheading.” (That’s right, ‘religion’ doesn’t, ISLAM does)
A second woman in an Oklahoma nursing home was also threatened with beheading by a Muslim co-worker. (Go figure)
Police say Nolen beheaded a woman and stabbed another at his former place of work, an Oklahoma food processing plant in Moore, an Oklahoma City suburb. Nolen reportedly had recently converted to Islam.”If Nolen proves to be radicalized, the mosque will suffer a similar blow dealt by the recent spate of ISIS beheadings,” Eid said. (Don’t forget the recent beheading in Britain, too)
“We American Muslims are suffering a double hurt, and at the same time people are abusing our religion,” Eid said of all the gruesome attacks aimed at the U.S. Eid said people should not judge Islam “based on the acts of people,” because those acts are not consistent with the religion. (Oh, but we DO judge you by your acts, acts that are supported and often inspired by the quran and other Muslim holy books)
Apparently, ISIS-linked terrorists in Algeria have heeded the call and beheaded a French tourist earlier today (Click link below for video/photos)
