It Can’t Happen Here? Muslim Organization Wants International Law Criminalizing Criticism of Islam

November 26, 2019 — PJMedia.com reports: “The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), which is made up of 56 nations plus the Palestinian Authority, met Thursday in Jeddah and called for the adoption of an international law criminalizing criticism of Islam. But that kind of law could never be adopted in the United States, could it? Think again.

The OIC’s secretary-general, Dr. Yousef al-Othaimeen, called upon the nations of the world, both Muslim and non-Muslim, to crack down on speech that was ‘insulting religions or prophets.’ It was clear, however, that al-Othaimeen couldn’t have cared less about speech insulting Christianity or Judaism or Hinduism or Buddhism or any of the revered figures of those religions. He cared only about criticism of Islam.

‘There are laws against anti-Semitism and racism,’ said al-Othaimeen. ‘So we request a law against mocking religions.’ He didn’t explain why laws against racism should lead to laws against criticizing belief systems, since, after all, contrary to the assumptions of Rachel Dolezal, Shaun King, and Elizabeth Warren, one cannot change one’s race, but one can change one’s beliefs, including religious beliefs. Al-Othaimeen likely knows this, but cited racism because he knows how to pull the right strings to get the Western intelligentsia to do what he wants…”  (The American Thinker web page gives the Top ten reasons why sharia is bad for all societies:

  • Islam commands offensive, aggressive and unjust jihad which is a holy war
  • Islam orders apostates to be killed
  • Islam orders death for Muslims and death for non-Muslim critics of Muhammad and the Quran, and even Sharia itself
  • Islam orders unmarried fornicators to be whipped, put to death, and adulterers to be stones
  • Islam commands all homosexuals to be executed
  • Islam commands that highway robbers should be crucified or mutilated
  • Islam commands that a male and female thief must have a hand cut off
  • Islam allows an injured plaintiff to exact legal revenge, physical eye for physical eye
  • Islam allows husbands to beat their wives
  • Islam commands that drinkers and gamblers be beaten.)

Islamic State Media Encourages Jihadis to Set Forest Fires in U.S. and Europe

November 11, 2019 — Breitbart.com reports: “Quraysh Media, a media organization that supports the Islamic State, is encouraging ISIS followers to start wildfires in the U.S. and Europe as a new way of ‘waging jihad.’

The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) spotted four posters distributed by Quraysh Media since April containing the (literally) incendiary message to Islamic State devotees, or ‘monotheists’ as Quraysh Media prefers to call them.

Two of the posters included images of American firefighters battling wildfires.

‘Ignite fires in the forests of America, France, Britain and Germany, for they are painful to them,’ instructed the fourth poster, which was released on Monday.

Various Western media outlets speculated the Islamic State was inspired by the rash of wildfires in California, although there seems to be no clear evidence of this. ISIS has been known to celebrate American deaths in previous wildfires, and has taken credit for setting crop fires in Syria and Iraq…”  (This is nothing new, ISIS has called for attacks around the world for several years.  An issue of the ISIS magazine Rumiyah encourages the use of heavier, deadlier trucks to carry out attacks.  It states: “The ideal vehicle,” says the page, has a “slightly raised chassis and bumper,” is a “double-wheeled, load-bearing truck” that “large in size, heavy in weight” and is “fast in speed or rate of acceleration.”  And they are encouraged to use them in: “…large outdoor festivals, conventions, celebrations, and parades…”   Killing is rewarded in Islam.  Not only do they receive 72 virgins as righteous and martyred godly men, but what even more shocking is they get to choose 70 relatives and friends to go to heaven.  Their plan of winning the lost is a sick one and against God’s plan which is: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” – John 3:16.  See the next reports)

Report: Taliban Overtakes Islamic State as ‘Deadliest Terror Group’

November 21, 2019 — Breitbart.com reports: “The Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) in Sydney, Australia, on Wednesday published the 2019 edition of its Global Terrorism Index.

The survey of terrorist incidents over the past year found that the Taliban has surpassed the Islamic State as the world’s deadliest terrorist group. The Islamic State (ISIS) was seen as the deadliest threat in every edition of the report since 2013.

The rise of the Taliban and fall of ISIS in the 2019 report, which uses data from the calendar year 2018, were almost perfectly symmetrical: the Taliban racked up 70 percent more murders to reach 6,103, while the Islamic State killed 70 percent fewer people and sank to 1,328 kills. The Taliban is now responsible for about 38 percent of all terrorism-related deaths around the globe.

IEP noted the decline of the Islamic State is not even across all of its branches. Some ISIS affiliates, notably including the Khorasan Chapter that is battling the Taliban to control parts of Afghanistan, increased their level of activity during 2018. If the Khorasan Chapter is broken out from the Islamic State as a separate group, it would be the deadliest terrorist threat over the ten-year period ending in 2018, followed by Nigeria’s Boko Haram (an ISIS affiliate), the rest of ISIS, and the Taliban…”
