Muslims on Twitter Defending Execution of James Wright Foley

Of course, there are plenty of Westernized Muslims who condemn the beheading of James Wright Foley. Unfortunately, Islam isn't defined by Westernized Muslims.

For a brief introduction to Muhammad's teachings about unbelievers, watch this:

American Journalist James Wright Foley Beheaded by Islamic State (ISIS)

The Qur'an commands Muslims to punish those who "make mischief" in a Muslim land:
Qur'an 5:33—The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His apostle and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement.
Sadly, the crime of "making mischief" is so vague that Muslims can use this verse as justification for killing nearly anyone, including reporters like James Wright Foley.

Of course, simply by paying taxes to the U.S. government, Foley would be guilty of funding the enemy's military, which is also a death penalty.

Journalists need to be careful around jihadist groups that know the Qur'an.

NBC News—The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) claims to have beheaded an American photojournalist and has threatened the life of another American if President Obama doesn't stop airstrikes in Iraq.

A graphic video obtained by NBC News purportedly shows James Wright Foley, a freelance reporter for the U.S.-based news service GlobalPost who was kidnapped while reporting from Syria two years ago, reciting threats against America before he is executed by an ISIS militant.

Foley was kidnapped at gunpoint near the town of Taftanaz in northern Syria on Thanksgiving Day in 2012. He had not been heard from during his time in captivity. "We’ve heard nothing. Nothing. We last knew that he was abducted on Thanksgiving Day in the Idlib province, but we don’t know who took him or why," Foley's father, John, said on TODAY last year. (Continue Reading.)

Syrian Christian Asks, "Why Aren’t Moderate Muslims Doing More to Stop Extremists in Their Midst?"

Moderate Muslims are a confusing group. When Hamas attacks Israel, moderate Muslims around the world take to the streets in protest against Israel. Moderate Muslims came out in droves against Mubarak and Assad. Yet when jihadists start massacring and raping Christians, the moderate Muslims are nowhere to be found.
Syrian Christian Reading the Bible
ALEPPO, Syria — Walking through the largely Christian neighborhoods of Aleppo city — Azizieh, Siryan, Sulaimaniyah and Midan — you can still see the posters of the two bishops kidnapped by Islamist militants last year hanging on shop windows, walls and even cars. The people here haven’t forgotten them; the event is still as painful and fresh as if it had happened just yesterday. The bishops’ kidnapping was a symbolic event, indicative of the larger collapse of interfaith communal relations in a country under the strain of a sectarian civil war, and marked the end of a long era of relative peace and safety for the Christians of Syria.

The streets themselves portray a deceptive and surreal kind of war “normalcy,” the kind where pockmarked buildings, mortar holes on the roads, shredded cars, even bloodstained sidewalks are the usual and expected sights as people go about their daily lives without a second glance. This is life now, this is reality here. What it was like before the war is no longer relevant, the memories of those distant and beautiful bygone days do not matter or factor in any more.

Fear is palpable in this city; it hangs heavy in the air everywhere you go, like a potent and nauseous perfume. You can see it in people's eyes, in the deep lines on their faces; you can hear it in the way they talk; it’s in their conversations, it’s all they ever talk about.

But fear of a new kind permeates this ancient and deeply rooted community. Genocide and ethnic cleansing are very real threats that haunt the collective conscience of Syria’s Christians. The terrible fate that befell their co-religionists across the border in Mosul has driven these points home in a rather blunt and frightening way. The genocidal, nihilistic death cult of the Islamic State (IS) is hell-bent on destroying everything that is not exactly it, and has been on an unstoppable rampage which has left a trail of decapitated bodies and mass graves in its wake, usually those of ethnic and religious minorities. The militants make no secret of their genocidal campaigns of mass murder and medieval violence; on the contrary, they openly celebrate with glee and revel in them. It is not a means to an end; for them, it is the end itself.

Yousef is a shopkeeper in the predominantly Christian neighborhood of Sulaimaniyah, which has seen almost constant rebel shelling since the civil war divided Aleppo in July 2012. His brother serves in the Syrian army in Damascus. In conversation, he conveyed to me some of the predominant questions and anxieties going through his community.

“Why aren’t the moderate Muslims doing more to stop the extremists in their midst?” he asked bitterly. “Do they agree with their ideology and extremism? We saw hundreds of thousands of protesters on the streets against the abuses of the regime, so why are we not now seeing those thousands of protesters against what IS is doing? Worse, we are now seeing many people and rebel groups joining them. There are so many hundreds of these Islamic rebel groups, but they are all the same, they all have this extremist ideology against us. My conclusion is that these groups and IS are fully supported and backed in what they are doing by the anti-government forces."

The Christians of Syria had for the most part tried to stay out of the country’s raging civil conflict, but had often found themselves embroiled in its messy and bloody events. On more than one occasion, the Christians became the focal point of action, as in Maaloula, Yabrud and Kassab, as well as high- profile kidnappings of nuns and clerics. (Continue Reading.)

Islamic State Message to America: "We Will Drown All of You in Blood"

I'm so confused. Doesn't the Islamic State (ISIS) watch ABC, MSNBC, and CNN, which claim that Islam is peaceful and tolerant? It's as if these jihadists only pay attention to what Allah commands, and not to what Western politicians and the media say.
BAGHDAD (Reuters) - The Islamic State militant group that has seized large parts of Iraq and drawn the first American air strikes since the end of the occupation in 2011 has warned the United States it will attack Americans "in any place" if the raids hit its militants.

The video, which shows a photograph of an American who was beheaded during the U.S. occupation of Iraq and victims of snipers, featured a statement which said in English "we will drown all of you in blood".

U.S. airstrikes on Kurdish forces in northern Iraq have helped the fighters take back some territory captured by Islamic State militants, who have threatened to march on Baghdad.

The latest advance by the Islamic State, an al Qaeda offshoot, sent tens of thousands of members of the Yazidi ethnic minority and Christians fleeing for their lives and alarmed the Baghdad government and its Western allies.

Unlike al-Qaeda, Islamic State has so far focused on seizing land in Iraq and Syria for its self-proclaimed caliphate, not spectacular attacks on Western targets.

U.S. President Barack Obama said at a news conference on Monday that the Islamic State posed a threat to Iraq and the entire region. (Source)

Islamic State (ISIS) Singling Out "Youngest and Prettiest" Captives

According to Islam's most trusted sources, Muhammad allowed his followers to rape their female captives. Muhammad, of course, would take the most beautiful captives to his own tent. Yet when Islamic State jihadists imitate their prophet (as the Qur'an commands in 33:21), the media calls it an "extreme interpretation of Islam."
DAHUK, IRAQ — Hundreds of Yazidi women who were captured by Islamic extremists during their sweep through the town of Sinjar are being incarcerated at scattered locations across northern Iraq in what increasingly looks like a deliberate attempt to co-opt them into service as the wives of fighters.

As the militants with the al-Qaeda-inspired Islamic State surged into the area from surrounding Arab villages two weeks ago, snaring those who had not managed to flee, they showed a marked interest in detaining women, notably the youngest and prettiest, according to witnesses, relatives and in some instances the women themselves.

Women were separated from men, then younger women were separated from older ones and most were shunted off in buses or trucks.

Once in custody, the women are presented with a bleak choice.

Those who convert to Islam can be promised a good life, with a house of their own and — implicitly — a Muslim husband, because the extreme interpretation of Islam promoted by the Islamic State does not permit women to live alone. (Continue Reading.)

Islamic State (ISIS) Jihadists Held in Iran Threatening Pastor Saeed Abedini

Notice the mentality in Iran. A Christian pastor deserves the same treatment as Sunni jihadists who kill Shias.
(Reuters) - The Idaho wife of an Iranian-American Christian pastor imprisoned in Iran for nearly two years said on Thursday her husband has received death threats from Islamic State militants held in the same detention center.

Saeed Abedini, 34, a naturalized U.S. citizen, was sentenced to eight years in prison by an Iranian court last year for undermining national security by setting up home-based Christian churches in his native country from 2000 to 2005.

His wife, Naghmeh Abedini, of Boise, Idaho, said threats to his life from lack of healthcare and nutritious food were compounded this week when cell mates told him Sunni Muslim prisoners who have aligned themselves with the Islamic State, formerly known as ISIS, have targeted him for death. It was not clear if the detained militants were Iraqis or Iranians.

Abedini relayed the information to his mother, who visited him this week at Rajai Shahr prison, west of the Iranian capital of Tehran, the pastor's wife told Reuters.

"He's already under threat because he is a convert to Christianity. Now we understand that ISIS members in the prison have said he is their number one target," she said.

The insurgent group the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, also known as ISIL or ISIS, is an al Qaeda offshoot that shortened its name recently to Islamic State.

Fighting against the governments of Iraq and Syria, it wants to recreate a medieval-style caliphate from the Mediterranean to the Gulf and deems Shi'ite Muslims to be heretics deserving death.

The pastor is in the same ward but a separate section from the Islamic State adherents, his wife said, adding that he is afraid to leave his cell and join the general prison population in the yard for exercise. (Continue Reading.)

What Muslim Women Want (According to ISIS)

Notice that, according to the Islamic State (ISIS), the Westernized Muslim women we're so familiar with don't even qualify as true Muslimahs. Real Muslim women, according to ISIS, are only attracted to jihadists.

Islamic State (ISIS): "We Don't Care About International Humanitarian Laws, We Care About Sharia"

What an odd statement. Muslims in the West, along with politicians and the media, assure us that Sharia is wonderful and peaceful and completely compatible with international humanitarian laws. Where did the Islamic State (ISIS) get the idea that Sharia is somehow at odds with international humanitarian laws?

Muslim Students Openly Recruiting for Islamic State (ISIS) in London

It seems that jihadists and their supporters have finally realized that Western leaders are complete cowards who will do absolutely nothing to stand against the rapid spread of Islamic violence. Muslim students in London are now openly recruiting for the Islamic State.

Muslims on Twitter Discussing Sex with Female Captives and Slave Girls

Interesting. When I quote the Muslim sources to show that Islam allows sex with female captives and slave girls, people call me an Islamophobe. But Muslims are openly discussing sex with captives on Twitter. Are they Islamophobes?

Islamic State (ISIS) Selling Yazidi Girls for Ten Dollars

Islam allows Muslims to capture, rape, and sell women and girls (click here for sources). Politicians and the media defend Islam, but are shocked when Muslims actually do what the Qur'an says they can do.
The Guardian—For the past week, Khandhar Kaliph's hands have trembled whenever his phone has rung.

He nervously greeted his daughter, who had been kidnapped when the Islamic State (Isis) overran the Yazidi city of Sinjar. There was a minute of silence, before he broke down sobbing.

"She said she is going to be sold as a slave this afternoon, for $10," Kaliph said, his tears dropping into the brown dust. "What can a father say to that. How can I help? We all feel so useless."

Kaliph's daughter, who he did not want to name, had access to a group phone passed around between other girls imprisoned by the Islamic State in Bardoush prison in central Mosul.

All face the imminent prospect of being married off. Or worse, being used by the jihadis as a sex slave.

"The world needs to know that is where our women are, where they are being enslaved, young and old alike," he said, sitting in the dirt outside a building site near the Iraqi Kurdish city of Dohuk that he and some 70 other Yazidis are now using as shelter.

Dohuk and the strip of land to the Fishkhabour crossing into Syria are now teeming with Yazidis, who have escaped in the past 48 hours from Mount Sinjar in northern Iraq, where they had been besieged by Isis. Nearly all the Yazidis the Guardian met offered stories of women and girls being kidnapped, or of men being killed in the brutal rampage that has shattered centuries of coexistence in Iraq's north-west.

"We didn't know what hit us," said a man who joined the conversation. "We were asleep one minute, and running for our lives the next."

Some Yazidi men say they had phoned their daughter or wife's phone number only to be told tersely by strange male voices not to call again. (Continue Reading.)

Muslims Using Facebook to Recruit for the Islamic State (ISIS)

Had to take a screenshot of this guy's post in the "Debate Islam" group. (His comments are filled with "kafir this" and "kafir that" and "Islam will conquer the world.")

Captured Yazidi Girls Say They Would Rather Die Than Be Sex Slaves for the Islamic State (ISIS)

The woman in this video is talking on the phone with her aunt, who is reporting on the activities of the Islamic State (ISIS). The Islamic State is taking Yazidi virgins "for their amusement." The girls are told that if they do not obey, they will be killed. Some say they prefer death.

Colorado Muslim Convert Shannon Conley Pleads Guilty to Attempting to Join Islamic State (ISIS)

Politicians and the media defend Muhammad and the Qur'an through outright deception. Since people never hear the truth about Islam, and only hear praises from our leaders, young people like Shannon Conley are happy to convert to Islam when a Muslim preacher arrives. Some of these converts then examine the Qur'an to see what Allah commands them to do. And they read:
Qur’an 9:29—Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the Religion of Truth, from among the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
Imagine what would have happened if someone had told Conley the truth about Islam before she converted. She would have her whole life ahead of her.
DENVER - A 19-year-old Arvada woman accused of trying to help a foreign terrorist organization plans to plead guilty in the case.

Federal documents filed Friday say an agreement has been reached in the case against Shannon Conley of Arvada. Details of the agreement weren't part of the court filing, but Conley's public defender Robert Pepin asked to schedule a change of plea hearing.

A federal criminal complaint states that between Sept. 7, 2013 and April 8, 2014, Shannon Maureen Conley, together with others, tried to provide material support and resources, including personnel and expert advice, to a foreign terrorist organization.

Shannon Conley (right) after converting to Islam
Conley, a Muslim convert, was arrested April 8 at Denver International Airport after telling FBI agents she was traveling to Syria to use her American military training from the U.S. Army Explorers to aid Islamic militants waging jihad -- or holy war -- even though she knew that it was illegal, according to federal court records.

She said "legitimate targets of attack" included U.S. military bases, government employees and public officials, the documents say.

Against her parents wishes, Conley planned to marry a Tunisian man, who was fighting in Syria for Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), an al-Qaida splinter group. She'd met the man online and communicated with him on Skype.

Conley is charged with conspiracy to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization.

Authorities began investigating Conley on Nov. 5, 2013, after a call from the pastor at Faith Bible Chapel in Arvada who saw Conley taking notes at the church. (Continue Reading.)

Dear President Obama: Please Help Bring Our Daddy Home (a Message from the Children of Jailed Pastor Saeed Abedini)

Pastor Saeed Abedini
Jacob and Rebekka, children of jailed pastor Saeed Abedini (a former Muslim), are begging President Obama to finally do something to bring their father home from Iran. Abedini has been held in Iran's notorious Evin Prison since 2012. He was convicted of undermining state security by "creating a network of Christian house churches" and "attempting to sway Iranian youth away from Islam." This man should be given a medal for heroism, not sentenced to prison.

While President Obama has time to praise Islam in Cairo and to condemn a YouTube video about Muhammad, he doesn't seem to have the time to protect the basic human rights of Americans abroad. We all know that President Obama won't do anything until his apathy becomes an embarrassment to his party, so be sure to pass this video on. If the public outcry increases, the Obama Administration may be compelled to act.

Islamic State (ISIS) Buries Alive Yazidi Women and Children

Women and children who refuse to convert to Islam are being buried alive by the Islamic State (ISIS). The Islamic State only has this power because the United States and its allies stopped Assad from wiping them out in Syria. Behold the fruits of U.S. foreign policy.

Of course, I'm still waiting for moderate Muslims to launch international protests against the atrocities of the Islamic State. I'm waiting . . . and waiting . . . and waiting . . .
(Reuters) - Islamic State militants have killed at least 500 members of Iraq's Yazidi ethnic minority during their offensive in the north, Iraq's human rights minister told Reuters on Sunday.

Mohammed Shia al-Sudani said the Sunni militants had also buried alive some of their victims, including women and children. Some 300 women were kidnapped as slaves, he added.

"We have striking evidence obtained from Yazidis fleeing Sinjar and some who escaped death, and also crime scene images that show indisputably that the gangs of the Islamic States have executed at least 500 Yazidis after seizing Sinjar," Sudani told Reuters.

Sinjar is the ancient home of the Yazidis, one of the towns captured by the Sunni militants who view the community as "devil worshipers".

"Some of the victims, including women and children were buried alive in scattered mass graves in and around Sinjar," Sudani said. (Continue Reading.)

Muslims Flocking to Join the Islamic State (ISIS) in Iraq

The Islamic State has been around since 2006 (and even earlier, if we trace it back to other jihadist groups). But most people only heard of ISIS recently. Why? Because ISIS gained a tremendous amount of momentum in Syria, enough to start rapidly conquering Iraq.

How did ISIS gain this momentum? One word: Success. By gaining ground against Assad, ISIS gained the respect of many young Muslims. How much more popular is ISIS going become now that they're standing their ground against the United States?

ISIS has recruitment centers across Iraq.
An ISIS Recruitment Center in Mosul
(CNN) — Abu Raad pleaded with his son not to volunteer.

But there was nothing he says he could say to talk his 19-year-old son out of joining ISIS, which refers to itself as the Islamic State and is formerly known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

"I don't know what they told him," Abu Raad told CNN by telephone from his home in Mosul. "Last week, my son came home and told me that he is leaving home and joining the Islamic State."

And then, the teenager packed a bag and left.

"We have heard nothing from him," said Abu Raad, who asked to be identified by his Arab nickname out of fear of retaliation by ISIS for speaking out.

His son is now believed to be one of hundreds of young Sunni men who, two Iraqi senior defense officials tell CNN, have joined ISIS in recent weeks in the Iraqi provinces of Nineveh, Salaheddin and Anbar.

Analysts and U.S. officials estimate ISIS has as many as 10,000 fighters in Iraq and Syria, including those who were freed from prisons by ISIS and Sunni loyalists who have joined the fight as the group advanced.

But that number likely doesn't include these latest recruits, mostly young men between the ages of 16 and 25 who are primarily poor, unemployed and lack an education, the two Iraqi senior defense officials told CNN.

Add to that a disenfranchisement felt by Iraq's Sunni minority, who have bitterly complained of being marginalized and cut out of the political process by Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's Shiite-dominated government.

The height of that disenfranchisement coincided with ISIS routing Iraqi security forces in Mosul, Iraq's second-largest city, in June.

Abu Raad blames al-Maliki's government for what happened with his son.

"He allowed those (ISIS) thugs" to take hold in the country, he said.

U.S. President Barack Obama vowed on Saturday to push Iraq's lawmakers to create a more inclusive government that "can give confidence to populations in the Sunni areas that (ISIS) is not the only game in town."

But for now, at least in Mosul, ISIS is recruiting young men at a rapid pace, officials and residents told CNN.

"Once they are in, (ISIS) gives them cars to drive, guns, cell phones and cash money," said one man, who lives in Mosul and has direct knowledge of ISIS recruit efforts.

In Mosul, for example, ISIS recruiting efforts appear to begin at information centers that have been set up around the city.

Pictures of the centers posted online purportedly by ISIS claim to show militants, many dressed head-to-toe in black, distributing leaflets, videos and CDs about their operations to men and boys.

While CNN cannot confirm the authenticity of the pictures, they appear to coincide with descriptions provided by the man who described ISIS recruiting efforts.

The pictures also show men and young boys gathered in front of the centers, watching videos purporting to show ISIS leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, on giant flat-screen televisions.

In some of the videos, al-Baghdadi is heavily armed. In others, he appears to be preaching at a pulpit.

Still other pictures appear to show videos about bomb-making and suicide bombs.

At the centers, ISIS encourages young men to join, according to a man who asked to be identified only as Abu Younis out of fear of retaliation by ISIS

The actual recruiting occurs elsewhere, according to Younis, who lives in Mosul and told CNN he has visited the centers.

Sometimes, he says, recruiting takes place at mosques. (Continue Reading.)

Women Being Stoned to Death by Rebels in Syria

The Obama Administration decided to back rebels against the Assad regime. Now women are being stoned to death in areas controlled by the rebels. The new face of American foreign policy is a stoning victim.
BEIRUT (AP) — A cleric read the verdict before the truck came and dumped a large pile of stones near the municipal garden. Jihadi fighters then brought in the woman, clad head to toe in black, and put her in a small hole in the ground. When residents gathered, the fighters told them to carry out the sentence: Stoning to death for the alleged adulteress.

None in the crowd stepped forward, said a witness to the event in a northern Syrian city. So the jihadi fighters, mostly foreign extremists, did it themselves, pelting Faddah Ahmad with stones until her body was dragged away.

"Even when she was hit with stones she did not scream or move," said an opposition activist who said he witnessed the stoning near the football stadium and the Bajaa garden in the city of Raqqa, the main Syrian stronghold of the Islamic State group.

The July 18 stoning was the second in a span of 24 hours. A day earlier, 26-year-old Shamseh Abdullah was killed in a similar way in the nearby town of Tabqa by Islamic State fighters. Both were accused of having sex outside marriage.

The killings were the first of their kind in rebel-held northern Syria, where jihadis from the Islamic State group have seized large swaths of territory, terrorizing residents with their strict interpretation of Islamic law, including beheadings and cutting off the hands of thieves. The jihadis recently tied a 14-year-old boy to a cross-like structure and left him for several hours in the scorching summer sun before bringing him down -- punishment for not fasting during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

Muslim Admits That Islam Allows the Rape and Impregnation of War Captives

Islamic State (ISIS) jihadists are raping Christian and Yazidi women. Muslims who aren't familiar with the Qur'an and Hadith often claim that Islam doesn't allow the rape of female captives. As I showed here, both the Qur'an and the Hadith allow Muslim fighters to rape captured women and slave girls.

Interestingly, a Muslim just admitted this, but he tried to diminish its importance. After someone posted a link to my article on Islam and war captives, a commenter posted the following hadith (which provides the historical background for Surah 4:24 of the Qur'an):

Notice that the claim was that Islam allows the "rape and impregnation" of war captives. A Muslim commented as follows:

At this point, someone quoted me to point out the obvious, namely, that Islam isn't defined by what modern Muslims think, but by the Qur'an and the Hadith:
