01) Ayaan Hirsi Ali – What is Radical Dawa?


“Ayaan Hirsi Ali in an exclusive video – Dawa is not terrorism, it is the act of missionizing. But when radical extremist elements start to preach Dawa they have a different agenda. They prey on the vulnerable, lonely, disaffected and troubled to convert for one purpose – Jihad.”

Western Sharia Police…

01) Western Sharia Police


“Police forces across the Western world protect Islam over the rights of Western citizens. This cannot continue, Muslims must learn to accept criticism of Islam.”

Not a fan of all the people featured…But, this issue is relevant, I think.

No religious people should be so defensive [or offensive], that only other people of their religion can safely approach them.

No religion is above critical commentary.

Testing Tolerance: Swedes are saying ‘enough’, to immigrants, no-go zones, sharia law & gang rapes…

01) Testing Tolerance: Swedes are saying ‘enough’, to immigrants, no-go zones, sharia law & gang rapes


“At the height of the immigrant influx into Europe in 2014 and 2015, Sweden with a population of 6.7 million, accepted 244,178 asylum seekers – by far, the highest rate per capita in the EU. Since then the rate of violent crime has soared, particularly sexual assault cases.

The Swedish police have outlined over 50 areas with high immigrant populations that are “marred by crime, social unrest and insecurity.” Of these, 23 have been classified as “especially vulnerable,” or what migration critics call “no-go zones,” where even the police have trouble operating.

Besides the high incidence of gang violence and drug trafficking, residents complain these areas are being virtually colonised by immigrants whose cultures clash with Swedish values. Many Swedes and older immigrants alike have begun to say that Sweden doesn’t feel like Sweden anymore.

Critics of the government’s liberal immigration policies complain the police are afraid to intervene for fear of being accused of racial profiling, while the country’s politically correct press generally brands anyone raising concerns about immigrants as racist.

But now, some people fed up with what they see as the authorities’ inaction have taken matters into their own hands. They have begun to organise groups calling themselves names like ‘The Soldiers of Odin’ to patrol the country’s most blighted neighbourhoods. They are sometimes called vigilantes or racists, but the groups say they want the freedom to live in their own country as it was before the migrant crisis began.”

Date: February 19, 2018

01) The Origins of Islam


“Where did Islam come from? The story of how it came to be established across a vast empire stretching from the Atlantic to the frontiers of China is conventionally traced back to the charisma and inspiration of a single man: Muhammad. But his story was not written until 200 years later. Join historian Tom Holland who has received death threats for challenging the long-held origins of Islam.”

01) Top Ten Books to Understand Islamism

“The debate about how best to deal with Islamism is a complex topic that raises many different questions.

How far should religion be accommodated in the public sphere? To what extent is Western foreign policy responsible for the rise of Islamist movements? Does Islamic theology support terrorism?

Clearly to speak knowledgeably about the problem and potential solutions, a broad range of understanding is needed, taking in both the Enlightenment values of toleration and integration as preached in contemporary Western democracies as well as Muslim thought. Only by combining these spheres can one gain a fuller picture

So, here are 10 “must-reads” to understand the current debate about Islamism:”

It’s A Man’s ‘National Duty’ To Rape Women Who Expose Their Legs…

01) It’s A Man’s ‘National Duty’ To Rape Women Who Expose Their Legs


“A prominent Egyptian lawyer disgusted humane viewers of an Arabic TV show by claiming that women who wore revealing jeans deserved to get raped. He went so far as to imply that men should be proud of abusing such women, calling it men’s “national duty.”

To be fair…he is being strongly contested [possibly chewed out], for saying such a thing. His views are extremist and inhumane…but there is hope, in the push back he is receiving.
