Islamophobia vs. Hatred of Muslims

"Islamophobia" is a myth invented to silence critics of jihad. If you dare point out the obvious connections between what ISIS is doing and the Qur'an verses ISIS is quoting, you will be called an "Islamophobe." A "phobia," however, is an irrational fear, and people's concerns about jihad are legitimate and reasonable.

Nevertheless, hatred of Muslims simply for being Muslims is a real phenomenon. I read comments regularly from people calling for violence against Muslims. Here's an all-too-common example. ***WARNING: GRAPHIC LANGUAGE***


Here's the key to remember. Islam is an ideology. It has no feelings, and has no special privileges over other ideologies. Islam has been put forward as the truth; hence, we are entirely justified in scrutinizing it with all the tools of logic, epistemology, and rhetoric.

Muslims, by contrast, are human beings, and human beings have rights. Among these rights is the right not to be killed for believing in a certain book or a certain prophet. While we may disagree with our Muslim friends about their ideology, disputes about ideologies should be settled through argument, not through threats or violence.

Mississippi: Muslim Newlyweds Jaelyn Delshaun Young and Muhammad Oda Dakhlalla Arrested for Attempting to Join ISIS

Jaelyn Delshaun Young was a sophomore studying chemistry at Mississippi State University. However, after converting to Islam, she hatched a plot to join ISIS by marrying another Muslim student and posing as honeymooners. Her new husband, Muhammad Oda Dakhlalla, has a degree in psychology and was about to start graduate school.

How many more young people have to throw away their lives before we can have an honest discussion about Islam? Will politicians and the media continue to assure us that jihad is the result of joblessness and illiteracy when so many jihadists are highly educated young people with bright futures and loving families?
Jaelyn Delshaun Young and Muhammad Oda Dakhlalla
JACKSON, Mississippi - The would-be blushing bride and groom sat in a Mississippi courtroom Tuesday, side-by-side, facing charges that they tried to join the world's most notorious terrorist organization.

Criminal charges filed Saturday say Jaelyn Delshaun Young, 20, and Muhammad Oda Dakhlalla, 22, were arrested that morning at a regional airport near Columbus, Mississippi, allegedly on their way to join jihad.

Officials say the couple were trying to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS.) And they claim it was the 19-year-old Young who was the mastermind behind the plot to do so, which involved getting married and pretending to be on a honeymoon to get there, reports CBS affiliate WJTV in Jackson.

Both are officially charged with attempting and conspiring to provide material support to a terrorist group. An affidavit by an FBI agent says both confessed their plans after their arrest.

At a second hearing Tuesday in the case in Federal Court in Oxford before U.S. Magistrate Judge S. Allan Alexander, it was unveiled that on social media sites, Young expressed her happiness about the recent shooting in Chattanooga where five service members were killed, reports WJTV.

Judge Alexander Tdenied bail, saying that even though the pair have never been in trouble with the law and have relatives willing to oversee their home confinement, their desire commit terrorism is "probably still there."

Urging the court to keep the suspects in custody, Assistant U.S. Attorney Clay Joyner likened them to Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, saying that like him, they could commit violence with knives, vehicles or homemade weapons.

"They don't need a gun to do harm," Joyner said. "They don't need military training to do harm. What they need is a violent, extremist ideology, and that's exactly what they have espoused." (Continue Reading.)

Muslim Caller Hears the Gospel and Becomes a Christian

While we were doing a program on the Trinity Channel, a Muslim called in and said that whenever he visits the mosque, he can't stop thinking about Jesus. After answering some of his questions about Jesus, Christianity, and the Gospel, the Muslim caller became a Christian!

Rutgers University Professor Deepa Kumar Declares: "The U.S. Is More Brutal Than ISIS"

Deepa Kumar is the author of Islamophobia and the Politics of Empire. She teaches courses on media studies and Middle Eastern studies at Rutgers University. Not surprisingly, she is busy teaching the next generation of Americans that the United States is more evil than the Islamic State.

Harlem Suarez (aka Almlak Benitez) Arrested for Plot to Bomb Key West Beach

Harlem Suarez lived a double life. On one Facebook page, he loved partying. On his other Facebook page (under the name "Almlak Benitez"), he praised ISIS and contacted other Muslims about his plot to detonate a bomb on a Key West beach.

Can we talk about Islam yet?
BBC—A 23-year-old man has been charged with planning to detonate a backpack bomb on a Florida beach, US officials say.

The US justice department said Harlem Suarez, also known as Almlak Benitez, has been charged with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction.

He allegedly planned to bury a bomb containing nails at a beach in Key West and detonate it with a mobile phone.

Prosecutors claim he was inspired by the Islamic State militant group, which has called for attacks on the West.

According to the FBI, Suarez recorded a video in May in which he said: "We will destroy America and divide it into two. We will raise our black flag on top of your White House and any president on duty."

Officials say he first came to the attention of the FBI in April after posting extremist messages on Facebook.

He was caught after buying a fake device from an FBI agent in a sting operation on Monday.

Several young men have been arrested in the US in recent months, with many plotting attacks in the name of the Islamic State group. (Source)

Full Text of the Hadith Sent by Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez

Reuters is reporting that Tennessee jihadist Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez sent his friend a link to "a long Islamic verse" (actually a hadith) shortly before he opened fire in Chattanooga.
Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (Reuters) - Hours before the Tennessee shooting that killed five U.S. servicemen, the suspected gunman texted his close friend a link to a long Islamic verse that included the line: "Whosoever shows enmity to a friend of Mine, then I have declared war against him."

His friend thought nothing of it at the time, but now wonders if it was a clue to Thursday's rampage in Chattanooga, which has re-ignited concerns about the radicalization of young Muslim men.

"I didn't see it as a hint at the time, but it may have been his way of telling me something," the friend told Reuters on Saturday. He requested anonymity for fear of a backlash.

The suspect, Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez, a 24-year-old Kuwaiti-born naturalized U.S. citizen, was killed in a gunfight with police. The FBI is investigating the attack as an act of terrorism, but said it was premature to speculate on the gunman's motive.

While a firm connection between the suspect and radical Islam has not been established, the shooting follows a series of attacks or thwarted attacks in the United States and other countries by Muslims claiming to be inspired by Islamic State or other militant groups. (Continue Reading.)
Reuters doesn't give the full quote or the reference, but for those who want to read it, here it is (in a different translation):


I'm not sure which part was most important for Abdulazeez, but there are a few possibilities.

First, there is the portion quoted by Reuters about Allah declaring war on someone who shows enmity towards a Muslim. Since the U.S. military has killed numerous Muslims in various wars, Abdulazeez was clearly convinced that Allah had declared war on the U.S. military. When Allah declares war, Muslims must fight.

Second, Allah says that the most beloved things a Muslim can approach him with are the deeds commanded by Allah. If Abdulazeez regarded Allah's commands to "Fight those who do not believe in Allah" (Qur'an 9:29) or to "Fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness" (9:123) as commands directed towards Muslims in general, he may have believed that killing U.S. Marines was straightforward obedience to clear commands.

Third, Allah points out that a Muslim can come even closer to him by going beyond the performance of obligatory deeds. Hence, Abdulazeez may have believed that he was going beyond the call of duty by attacking U.S. Marines, and that his actions would get him special honor.

Fourth, Allah declares that he will come so close to Muslims who perform supererogatory deeds (deeds that go beyond the call of duty), he will actually become their sense of sight and their sense of hearing. If Abdulazeez had a spiritual hunger, he may have longed to be so close to Allah that Allah becomes his senses.

Fifth, if a Muslim performs supererogatory deeds, Allah promises to protect the Muslim who asks for protection. The hadith may therefore have been a request for divine protection.

Of course, Abdulazeez may have meant more than one of the above possibilities. But since he threw his life away waging jihad for Allah, I guess we'll never know.

Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez Identified as Chattanooga Jihadist

Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez was born in Kuwait, but he grew up in Tennessee. He was on a high school television program in a suburb of Chattanooga, and his yearbook quote was "My name causes national security alerts. What does yours do?"

Abdulazeez graduated from the University of Tennessee with a degree in engineering, and he owned a house. In 2010, his sister Yasmeen declared: "There’s this misconception that Islam is a violent religion. Muslims are actually peaceful."

Today, Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez shot and killed four U.S. Marines at two military facilities in Chattanooga, and injured several more.

Authorities say they're searching for a motive. I can think of one, but if I say it, I'll be called a racist.

Can we talk about Islam yet?
Reuters—Five people were killed on Thursday including a suspected gunman who opened fire at two military-related facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee in an attack local officials described as brazen, brutal and an act of domestic terrorism.

CBS News quoted two law enforcement officials as saying the suspect was Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez. No motive has yet been given. The suspected shooter, who has not been officially identified, is believed to have lived in the area and acted alone, local police said.

The other four killed were Marines at a Naval Reserve Center, a military official said in Washington, DC.

"We are treating this as an act of domestic terrorism," said Bill Killian, the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, adding that no official determination of the nature of the crime had yet been made.

Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez
The suspect, seen driving in an open-top Mustang, is believed to have first gone to a joint military recruiting center in a strip mall, and peppered the facility with gunfire. No one was injured in the attack.

"Everybody was at a standstill and as soon as he pulled away everyone scrabbled trying to make sure everyone was OK," said Erica Wright, who works two doors down from the center.

The gunman then drove off to a Naval Reserve Center about 6 miles (10 km) away, fatally shooting the four Marines before being fatally shot himself in a firefight with police.

Three others were wounded in the attacks, including a police officer and a Marine. The shootings began at about 10:45 a.m. local time and ended about 30 minutes later.

"There were numerous Chattanooga and Hamilton County officers who responded. They arrived on the scene extremely quickly. They actively and enthusiastically engaged this brazen criminal, and one of those officers was injured by gunfire from this criminal," Chattanooga Police Chief Fred Fletcher told a news conference.

A White House spokesman said President Barack Obama had been told about the shooting. (Continue Reading.)

A Muslim Asks for Sources on the Stupidity of Women in the Hadith

I just got this request for sources:
As salam uu alikum brother. May Allah shows you the right path. I would really love to know the article you wrote about Muhammad (s) opinion on women's. Where did you found the conversation of Mohammed , where is said women have lack of sense? And if you don't have any then please die and may Allah send you to the hell as soon as possible.

ISIS Repeats the Atrocities of Muhammad Step by Step

It still amazes me how the media will tell a horrific story about the brutal actions of ISIS but have absolutely no idea that ISIS following Muhammad's example to the letter. Let's look at an example.

After the Meccans gave up at the Battle of the Trench, the Muslims went home. That's when "Gabriel" came to Muhammad and ordered him to attack the Jewish tribe of Qurayza. After the Jews surrendered, Muhammad separated the men from the women and children from the grown men, brought the grown men to a trench, beheaded somewhere between 600 and 900 men, turned the women into sex slaves, and enslaved the children. Here's a passage:
Then they surrendered, and the apostle confined them in Medina in the quarter of d. al-Harith, a woman of B. al-Najjar. Then the apostle went out to the market of Medina (which is still its market today) and dug trenches in it. Then he sent for them and struck off their heads in those trenches as they were brought out to him in batches. Among them was the enemy of Allah Huyayy b. Akhtab and Ka`b b. Asad their chief. There were 600 or 700 in all, though some put the figure as high as 800 or 900. As they were being taken out in batches to the apostle they asked Ka`b what he thought would be done with them. He replied, 'Will you never understand? Don't you see that the summoner never stops and those who are taken away do not return? By Allah it is death!' This went on until the apostle made an end of them. Huyayy was brought out wearing a flowered robe in which he had made holes about the size of the finger-tips in every part so that it should not be taken from him as spoil, with his hands bound to his neck by a rope. When he saw the apostle he said, 'By God, I do not blame myself for opposing you, but he who forsakes God will be forsaken.' Then he went to the men and said, 'God's command is right. A book and a decree, and massacre have been written against the Sons of Israel.' Then he sat down and his head was struck off. (Ibn Ishaq, 464)
A bit later we read: "The apostle had ordered that every adult of theirs should be killed" (p. 465). How did Muhammad know who had reached puberty and who hadn't? Someone who survived the ordeal tells us:


The women and children were divided among the Muslims, and some of the women were traded for weapons:
Then the apostle divided the property, wives, and children of B. Qurayza among the Muslims, and he made known on that day the shares of horse and men, and took out the fifth. . . . Then the apostle sent Sa'd b. Zayd al-Ansari brother of b. Abdul-Ashhal with some of the captive women of B. Qurayza to Najd and he sold them for horses and weapons. (Ibn Ishaq, 466)
Now let's read an article about ISIS rounding up Yazidis and Christians, separating the women and children from the men, checking the pubes of young people to make sure they hadn't reached puberty, killing around 800 men, and taking the women and girls away as sex slaves.

Sound familiar? Not to the media, who are gagged by their own cowardice.
Daily Mail—A Yazidi refugee and his two nephews have told how they had to play dead to survive after they were rounded up, forced to stand next to a ditch and shot by laughing ISIS soldiers in a massacre which killed 800.

Once ISIS overran their town last August, the Yazidis were herded into a school and their armpits were inspected.

The women and girls were put on one side of the hall, to be taken away as sex slaves, while the men were lined up on the other.

Those with underarm hair were judged to be older than ten - and old enough to be murdered.

The 'men' were then split into two groups; those willing to convert to Islam and those who wanted to remain Christians.

The Christians were told that they would be taken to the Sinjar mountains and freed.

But it was a trick – and instead they were put into trucks and taken to killing fields around the village of Kojo, northern Iraq, where they were made to stand by mass graves and executed.

Khalaf – whose name has been changed to protect his identity – told how he was one of 800 men shot at, but survived.

He was too scared to move or even breathe as he laid, covered in blood from other victims, as dead bodies fell on top of him.

Khalaf’s two brothers were murdered that day, but his two nephews Kameel and Jamal, again, not their real names, lived by laying in the grave for hours while soldiers walked along checking for survivors.

If they found anyone still alive they were shot in the head to be sure they were dead.

A man lying next to Khalaf in the ditch was found by an ISIS fighter to still be breathing, so he was shot three times in the head.

Speaking from a refugee camp in Iraq, Khalaf, 42, told MailOnline: 'They [ISIS] took everybody to the big school inside Kojo. They took everything from us – telephones, money, gold.’

The jihadis ordered men and boys over the age of 10 to stand on the right and women and other children on the left.

'They tested to see if the boys had underarm hair,' he said.

The fanatics used this crude test to determine whether the Yazidi boys were old enough to be slaughtered. (Continue Reading.)

The Greatest Threat to ISIS

The Islamic State's greatest assets are (1) Western ignorance and (2) Western political correctness. Ignorance of Muhammad's teachings keeps non-Muslims from criticizing Islam, and it prevents Muslims from leaving Islam. Political correctness silences even people who know what Muhammad taught. Hence, the greatest threat to the Islamic State is not a tank or a drone, but an informed population of free people. An informed population will be immune to taqiyya, and truly free people will never submit to the bondage of political correctness. The most important work you as a citizen can do to defeat ISIS, then, is to spend time learning why Islam is false and to share what you learn.

Muslim Convert Alexander Ciccolo Arrested in Massachusetts for Terrorist Plot

Alexander Ciccolo is the son of Boston Police Captain Robert Ciccolo. After converting to Islam, he was "inspired" by the Boston Marathon Bombing to go on a killing spree.

If Islam is really no different from other religions, why do so many young converts to Islam decide to wage jihad? Shouldn't we see a similar pattern among non-Muslims? Can we talk about Islam yet?
Alexander Ciccolo
ABC News—The estranged son of a respected Boston police captain was arrested July 4 by FBI agents as part of a counter-terrorism operation against alleged ISIS-inspired domestic terrorists, federal officials told ABC News today.

Alexander Ciccolo, 23, of Adams, Mass., was taken into custody on gun charges after buying two pistols and two rifles from an undercover FBI confidential informant, federal officials said. In a search of his apartment, officials reported they found it loaded with possible bomb-making equipment including a pressure cooker, a variety of chemicals, an alarm clock, along with “attack planning papers” and “jihad” paperwork. FBI agents said he used the name Abu Ali al-Amriki and neighbors said he was a recent convert to Islam.

“This is a very bad person arrested before he could do very bad things,” one senior federal official briefed on the arrest told ABC News.

According to the FBI, Ciccolo attempted to stab a nurse in the head with a pen during a routine screening, “leaving a hole in the nurse’s skin.”

An FBI affidavit said Ciccolo initially planned to travel to “another state” and use a pressure cooker bomb “to conduct terrorist attacks on civilians, members of the U.S. military and law enforcement personnel.” The FBI said the attack location was later changed to a town with a state university and would be concentrated on “college dorms and cafeteria, to include executions of students, which would be broadcast live via the internet.”

Weapons Obtained by Alexander Ciccolo
Ciccolo’s father is Boston police Captain Robert Ciccolo, a veteran commander assigned to Operations at Boston Police headquarters who was one of the first responders to the deadly Boston Marathon bombing in April 2013. According to the FBI, the younger Ciccolo said he was “inspired” by the Marathon bombing and the use of pressure cooker bombs, and told the FBI undercover operative, “Allahu Akbar!!! I got the pressure cooker today.”

Law enforcement officials said Capt. Ciccolo alerted counter-terrorism authorities about a year ago that his son, with whom he had had minimal contact for several years, “was going off the deep end” and “spouting extremist jihadist sympathies.”

According to the affidavit of an FBI agent, the younger Ciccolo recently stated that he is, “not afraid to die for the cause," and that he characterized America as ”Satan” and “disgusting.” (Continue Reading.)

The Two Faces of Abdullah al-Andalusi

The British government is finally catching on to the extremist views of Abdullah al-Andalusi. Britons should be disturbed that their own security specialists took so long to figure this out, especially since I wrote an article on Abdullah's radical views more than five years ago. The article is titled: "Abdullah al-Andalusi Defends Terrorism, Tries to Cover-Up His Words, Condemns Muhammad, and Threatens Legal Jihad!"
The Telgraph—The Government watchdog which inspects police forces’ readiness for terrorism admitted that it employed one of Britain’s most notorious Islamic extremists.

For almost two years Abdullah al Andalusi, led a double life, the Telegraph can reveal.

By night, he taught that the terror group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) was “no different to Western armies,” said that “kaffirs,” non-Muslims, would be “punished in hell” and claimed that the British government wanted to destroy Islam.

By day, using a different name, he went to work for the same British government at the London offices of Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC), the official regulator of all 44 forces in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The disclosures will be intensely embarassing to the Prime Minister, David Cameron, who has criticised parts of Britain’s Muslim communities for “quietly condoning” Islamist extremism.

HMIC’s staff, who number less than 150, are given privileged access to highly sensitive and classified police and intelligence information to carry out their inspections.

The inspectorate’s work includes scrutinising police forces’ counter-terrorism capabilities and top-secret plans for dealing with terror attacks.

It has also recently published reports on undercover policing and the use of informants.

HMIC admitted that Mr al Andalusi, whose real name is Mouloud Farid, had passed a security vetting check to work as a civil servant at the inspectorate.

He was subsequently promoted to executive grade, a management rank, placing him at the heart of the security establishment.

He was only sacked after bosses spotted him on television defending extremist Islamic positions on behalf of his organisation, the Muslim Debate Initiative, which is heavily dependent on Saudi money.

The inspectorate insisted that he did not handle classified material but former friends of Mr al Andalusi said he had done so.

“His work did involve security areas. He said he had a role in overseeing the police response to terrorism and there were areas he couldn’t talk about,” said one former colleague at the Muslim Debate Initiative, who asked to remain anonymous.

“He would discuss the reports that HMIC were working on and the data they needed to present.

“His story is so odd and so scandalous in many respects. He had these two completely incompatible lives that went on for years. He despised Britain, yet worked for the British government. He would talk about the right of oppressed people to take up arms against the oppressor and yet he was overseeing the police.

“Opportunities came along to do dawah [preaching] as a full-time job, but he was never tempted to do that because he had a stable income and pension with the civil service.”

One anti-extremism activist, who knew said Mr al Andalusi, said: “[Al-Andalusi] admitted it to a few people. It is the hypocrisy of it that surprises me.”

MPs have called for a full investigation into how someone with as long a record of extremism as Mr al Andalusi had survived vetting and been appointed to his post.

Under the name by which he was known to HMIC, Mouloud Farid, his links with the Muslim Debate Initiative were a matter of public record.

He was registered as a director of the organisation at Companies House, though he earlier this year changed to yet a third name, Wazir Leton Rahman, on the companies register.

“This man’s unsuitability for sensitive work should have been obvious from the start,” said Khalid Mahmood, Labour MP for Birmingham Perry Barr.

“There is a lack of understanding of different strains of Islam in the civil service. I will be asking why the systems designed to prevent this did not work.”

Mr al Andalusi, a prominent figure on the extremist lecture circuit, is closely associated with the extremist group Hizb ut Tahrir, which believes that voting and democracy are un-Islamic.

He is also a strong supporter of the terrorist lobby group Cage, which sparked outrage earlier this year when it defended the Isil hostage-killer Mohammed Emwazi, “Jihadi John,” as a “beautiful” and “gentle” man who had been radicalised by MI5. Like Cage, Mr al-Andalusi fiercely supports the right of British citizens to travel to Syria to fight.

He spoke at a Cage rally outside his own employer’s parent department, the Home Office, to demonstrate against the arrest of the former Guantanamo detainee, Moazzam Begg, on Syria-related terror charges, later dropped. Alongside him were other high-profile extremists and hate preachers including Haitham al-Haddad and senior figures in Hizb ut Tahrir.

Mr al Andalusi has spoken at at least three other Cage events in the last ten months, including on September 20 last year when he claimed that, as part of its “war against Islam,” the British government wanted to force Muslims to eat non-halal meat.

He says that Western liberal society is committed to the “destruction” of all Muslim belief and shows on his Facebook page a picture a concentration camp with a Nazi swastika and “21st century” written on the watchtower.

In the foreground is a gallows with a short route to the hangman’s noose for “Islamists” and a longer route for “Muslim moderates.”

A spokesman for HMIC said: “Mr Farid was investigated for gross misconduct by taking part in public activity that compromised his impartial service to government, thereby breaching the Civil Service Code. He was suspended immediately whilst investigations were ongoing.”

The HMIC accepted Mr Farid’s resignation in July last year, the spokesman added. But the security lapse has only just emerged – coinciding with the government putting a new statutory duty on public bodies, including schools, to monitor and root out extremism.

In a talk at Queen Mary University, in East London, on 16 January, he asked why the al-Qaeda affiliate in Syria, Jabhat al-Nusra, was treated as a terrorist organisation by the West while the moderate Free Syrian Army was not.

He condemned memorials to 9/11, describing the terror attacks as “the day a vicious world empire [the US] found a publicly-acceptable excuse to bomb others, invade non-threatening nations, torture political dissidents and kill at least 300,000 innocent people.”

After Isil took over large portions of Iraq last year, he wrote that “most Muslims would be jubilant at the return of the caliphate [Islamic state], which is a vital obligation upon Muslims that has been conspicuously missing for so long.”

He condemned the group for killing civilians but said that the West had “no basis to judge Islamic State” because “IS are no different to Western armies and even some of the ‘founding fathers’ of Western nations… IS’s crime is being actually a good student of the West, right down to their corporate structure and organisation and ability to use social media.”

He said that “those who reject IS merely because IS’s school of thought is disagreeable to them should remember that Islam permits difference of opinion. To reject something as outside the fold of Islam, due to it being a different school of thought to one’s own, makes one a purveyor of disunity among Muslims.”

The former friends of Mr al Andalusi said they had left the Muslim Debate Initiative when it became increasingly extreme and dominated by donations from a wealthy Saudi businessman. (Continue Reading.)

Support a Conference for My Sons

Friends,

As some of you know, my two youngest sons have a rare genetic disease called "Myotubular Myopathy," which gives them extremely weak muscles. They breathe, eat, etc., through machines. Here's a picture of my son Reid after getting his tracheostomy operation:


Here's all the kids together more recently:


Although there is currently no cure, the disease is curable. Researches have partially cured the disease in mice and dogs, and they will soon be moving on to human trials.

There is a three-day conference in Chicago at the end of this month, where the doctors and pharmaceutical companies working on a cure will be meeting with affected families, collecting data on the children, and giving presentations on the latest research. We'd like to take Reid and Paley to the conference, but transportation is a problem due to the amount of equipment and supplies they require. The only way I can think of getting them there while keeping all their equipment powered is to rent an RV with power outlets. I looked into RV rentals in my area, and together with insurance, mileage, and gas the costs will be a few thousand dollars, which is a few thousand dollars more than I have. If anyone would like to contribute to getting my kids to the conference, you can do so through Paypal by clicking the button below (unless one of you happens to have an RV and lives close by and doesn't mind giving it up for a week, in which case, problem solved!).

***UPDATE ON CONFERENCE FOR MY KIDS*** Greetings everyone! Yesterday, I posted a request to support a trip to a medical conference for two of my sons. I just checked the Paypal account, and we have MORE than enough to cover the entire trip, all in less than 24 hours! (My wife is even checking with some of the other affected families to see if anyone is short on cash and needs some help making the trip, since we'll have some leftover donations.) So, thanks to everyone who generously chipped in. I'll post pictures and updates from the conference. No further donations are needed for our trip, but if you'd like to support the conference or MTM medical research, you can do so at the MTM-CNM website. God bless you all, and please pray for us.

Afghanistan: Muslims Throw Acid in Girls' Faces for Going to School

In Afghanistan, girls are doused in acid for going to school. In America, politicians and the media bend over backwards to defend the ideology that calls for the oppression of women.
Victims of an Acid Attack
Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN)—Attackers on a motorbike threw acid in the faces of three teenage girls on their way to school in Afghanistan's western Herat province on Saturday, an official told CNN.

The girls, age 16 to 18, are students at one of the biggest girls' schools in Herat city, the provincial capital, said Aziz-ul-Rahman Sarwary, head of the education department for the province.

All three girls were admitted to Noor hospital in Herat city before their parents took them elsewhere, said hospital head Jamal Abdul Naser Akhundzada.

Two of the girls were in critical condition after the acid was thrown in their faces, he said.

Akhundzada quoted the girls as saying that their assailants were two men on a motorbike.

"This is the punishment for going to school," the men told the girls after pouring the acid on them, according to Akhundzada. (Continue Reading.)

Fifty-Six Percent of People in Great Britain View Islam as a Threat to Liberal Democracy

A new poll shows that 56% of Britons view Islam as a threat to Western democracy. Are these people racists, or are they simply catching on to what Islam teaches (despite tireless efforts by politicians, educators, Muslim organizations, and the media to keep them in a state of perpetual ignorance)?
Aftermath of the 7/7 Bombings
Huffington Post—More than half of Britons now regard Muslims as a threat to the UK, far more than in the immediate aftermath of the 7/7 bombings a decade ago, an exclusive poll for The Huffington Post UK has found.

The research, conducted by YouGov, also showed that more than three quarters of people surveyed - 79% - believe another attack on the scale of 7/7 in Britain is likely.

And the figures reveal there has been a large decrease in the proportion of people who think multiculturalism benefits Britain.

The poll was conducted to mark the start of The Huffington Post UK's Beyond The Bombings series, which revisits 7/7 on the 10th anniversary to explore how Britain has changed in the years since.

The suicide attacks killed 52 victims and injured nearly 800 others when four bombs went off at Edgware Road, Aldgate and near Russell Square Tube stations, and on a bus in Tavistock Square.

The research found 56% of people think Islam is a "major" or "some" threat to Western liberal democracy - a notable rise from just 46% of people who said the same thing in a poll taken the day after the attacks on London's transport network on July 7, 2005.

The poll question specifically precluded "fundamentalist Islamist groups", meaning those polled were asked to focus on the religion as a whole. (Continue Reading.)

Jihadi Bride Amira Abase Laughs about Victims of Tunisia Terrorist Attack

How does a 16-year-old girl get to the point where she finds the deaths of dozens of people amusing? Could this have something to do with Islam?
Amira Abase
London Evening Standard—A London schoolgirl who fled to Syria to join terror group Islamic State has mocked the victims of the Tunisia massacre.

Amira Abase, 16, unwittingly told an undercover reporter at the Mail on Sunday that she was "laughing out loud" when asked about her reaction to the shootings, which saw 30 Britons killed.

In an online conversation with the reporter, the former Bethnal Green Academy pupil appeared to know little about the recent attack by gunman Seifeddine Rezgui in Sousse.

But when she was told that Muslim leaders were condemning the attacks, she simply replied "LOL" - text speak for "laughing out loud".

Reporter Abul Taher had contacted Ms Abase under the pretence that he was a fellow British Muslim teenager planning to run away and join Islamic State.

Ms Abase fled London in February along with friends Shamima Begum, 15, Kadiza Sultana, 16, to become so-called "jihadi brides".

Yesterday video emerged of three girls carrying automatic rifles around Raqqa, Syria - an Isis stronghold, but there were conflicting reports as to whether the trio were the former Bethnal Green Academy pupils.

Two of the girls have since married IS militants after choosing from a catalogue of suitors, according to reports.

Members of the girls' families, who appeared before a committee of MPs in March, claimed they were normal teenagers who watched shows including Keeping Up With The Kardashians. (Continue Reading.)

Obama Administration Blocks Weapons Deliveries to Kurds Fighting against Islamic State

The most successful fighters against ISIS so far have been the Kurds. However, as ISIS seizes more and more U.S.-made weapons and vehicles from the retreating Iraqi military, the Kurds are rapidly becoming outgunned. Some Arab states have tried to send upgraded weapons to the Kurds, but the Obama Administration is blocking all attempts to directly arm them. The U.S. and U.K. governments insist that all weapons be sent to Baghdad, to be controlled by the Iraqi military, which has repeatedly retreated and left weapons and supplies behind for jihadists.

See if you can get your minds around this. The Obama Administration won't allow other countries to arm the people who will never surrender to ISIS, and instead demands that weapons be sent to a group that ultimately gives weapons to ISIS.
Fox News—The U.S. has reportedly blocked any attempts by Middle East allies to fly weapons to the Kurds fighting the Islamic State in Iraq.

The Telegraph reports that U.S. allies say President Obama and other Western leaders, including Britain’s David Cameron, aren’t showing leadership over the escalating ISIS crisis in Iraq, Syria and throughout the Middle East.

These allies are now willing to “go it alone” in giving heavy weaponry to the Kurds, even if it means defying Iraq and the U.S. who want all weapons to be funneled through Baghdad, according to the newspaper.

High level officials from Gulf and other states have told The Telegraph that plans to persuade Obama to arm the Kurds directly have failed. The Senate voted down an amendment for the U.S. to bypass Baghdad and send weapons to the Kurdish fighters.

The officials told the paper they are looking for ways to bypass U.S. permission to give the Kurdish fighters weapons.

“If the Americans and the West are not prepared to do anything serious about defeating ISIL, then we will have to find new ways of dealing with the threat,” a senior Arab government official told The Telegraph. “With ISIL making ground all the time we simply cannot afford to wait for Washington to wake up to the enormity of the threat we face.”

The Peshmerga have gotten support from the Kurds to drive the Islamic State back from Erbil. However, they are doing so with makeshift weapons. The Telegraph says weapons have been bought by a number of countries throughout Europe to aid the Kurds, but U.S. commanders are blocking the arms transfers.

The Kurds also have said that the main part of their plight is that Iraqi forces have abandoned so many weapons in the face of ISIS’ attacks, they are now fighting American-made weaponry with Soviet-style equipment. (Continue Reading.)
Given the utter incompetence of our current leaders, I think we need to look to the future of Western leadership. Here's a pop quiz for future leaders.
