New York Shooter Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley Posted Quran Verse on Terrorizing Enemies of Allah

Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley shot and killed two New York City police officers (Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos), who were sitting in their patrol car. Brinsley was clearly motivated by outrage towards the death of Eric Garner. However, there may be another factor here. Brinsley was an Arabic speaker and posted a Qur'an passage on "striking terror" into the hearts of the enemies of Allah.

Qur'an 8:60 (quoted by Brinsley) reads:
Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of Allah, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly.
Here's more on the story:
New York (CNN)—Two New York City police officers were shot and killed ambush-style Saturday afternoon as they sat in their patrol car in Brooklyn, Police Commissioner William Bratton said.

The gunman approached the passenger side of the patrol car and opened fire several times, fatally wounding officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, authorities said at an evening press conference.

They were "shot and killed with no warning, no provocation," Bratton told reporters. "They were quite simply, assassinated."

Both were shot in the head, Bratton said.

The families of the fallen officers rushed to Woodhull Medical Center on Saturday, as dozens of police officers gathered in a show of support.

The officers—one with two years' experience, the other with seven years on the job—were normally assigned to downtown Brooklyn, but were working a "critical response" detail in an area with higher crime, police said.

Police identified the shooter as Ismaaiyl Brinsley. He was found dead in a nearby subway station from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The gunman arrived in New York from Baltimore, but had a residence in Atlanta, Bratton said.

Police were investigating posts he allegedly made on social media. (Continue Reading.)

Islamic Persecution of Christians is Increasing . . . in Europe

Many Christians flee the Muslim world to escape persecution. Imagine their surprise when they arrive in Europe and find that the persecution continues.

Is Christianity a Religion of Peace?

Whenever we attempt to discuss terrorist attacks committed in accordance with the commands of the Qur'an and Hadith, someone is sure to say, "Well, what about the Crusades?" But this response is only relevant if violence committed in the name of Christianity is actually commanded by Christianity. Are Christians ever commanded to commit violence?

Muhammad Explains the Universe (Islam and Science, Part One)

Many Muslim speakers and apologists assert that the Qur'an contains scientific miracles, and that Muhammad made claims about science that were not verified until centuries after his death. However, when we actually examine the Muslim sources (the Qur'an, the Hadith, the Sira, and the Tafsir), we find that Muhammad was wrong about almost everything he said concerning science. The only scientific statements Muhammad got right would have been known by virtually anyone in seventh-century Arabia. Hence, the "argument from scientific accuracy" fails rather miserably.

Yemen: Jihadists Blow Up Busload of Schoolgirls

Let's pretend, for a moment, that Islam has nothing to do with Islam. We're still left with the fact that millions of Muslims, from around the world, believe that it calls for terrorism. How do we correct such a misunderstanding? The plan of our leaders and the media (namely, keep saying that Islam is peaceful) isn't working at all. Indeed, terrorism is increasing. Since there are no other plans on the table, I guess we're just supposed to learn to live with daily terrorist attacks. Anything less would be bigoted and intolerant.
BBC—At least 25 people, among them 15 children, have been killed in twin car bomb attack in the central Yemeni province of Bayda, reports say.

The children were inside a school bus that was passing a checkpoint manned by Shia Houthi rebels in the Radaa area when the first bomb exploded.

The second one went off soon afterwards near the home of a Houthi leader.

The rebels blamed Sunni jihadist militants from al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) for the blasts.

They have been fighting in Radaa since the Houthis overran the AQAP stronghold in October, a month after taking control of the capital, Sanaa.

It is not clear if the school bus or the Houthi checkpoint was the intended target of the first car bombing.

The Associated Press news agency quoted the Houthis as saying the victims were all girls who had attended a local primary school. (Continue Reading.)

Sydney Terrorist Sheikh Man Haron Monis Tweeted My "Top Ten Quran Verses for Understanding ISIS"

A few months ago, while politicians and the media were busy assuring us that ISIS has nothing to do with Islam, I posted a video discussing some of the main Qur'an verses that support the actions of ISIS. Apparently, the video was so accurate that Sydney terrorist Sheikh Man Haron Monis tweeted it a month before his attack. Here's a screen shot of his tweet:

Why would Sheikh Haron, who despised non-Muslims (especially critics of Islam), promote my video? Because he wanted to show people how obvious it is that the Qur'an supports an ISIS-style theocracy. Sheikh Haron and I read the same sources, and we came to the same conclusions about what Allah commands.

For those who missed it, here's the video:

Facing the Islamic Challenge Biblically

Islam poses three significant challenges to Christians:
(1) Islam contradicts the core teachings of Jesus and his apostles.
(2) Islam places massive obstacles in the way of conversion.
(3) Islam calls for the subjugation of Christians and the global implementation of Sharia.
What are some Biblical responses to these challenges?

Five Reasons the Qur'an Is Not the Word of God

Muslims believe that the Qur'an is the eternal Word of Allah, delivered to Muhammad over a period of 23 years by the angel Gabriel. But how can we know if the Qur'an is what it claims to be? Here are five quick reasons to reject the divine origin of the Qur'an.

Islam Has a Secret Santa

Many people practice the "Secret Santa" tradition nowadays. But Islam seems to have invented it.

Can you guess the identity of Islam's Secret Santa?

Merry Christmas From Some of Your Favorite Muslims!!!

As the day on which many Christians celebrate the birth of Christ approaches, some of your favorite Muslims are back to wish you a Merry Christmas. Since many Muslims actually believe it is worse to wish someone a Merry Christmas than it is to murder someone, the willingness of men like Yusuf Estes, Abu Mussab Wajdi Akari, Zakir Naik, et al., to appear in the following video, as well as their teachableness and the exuberance they eventually show for Christiams, is all the more remarkable.

Three American Muslim Teens Caught Trying to Join ISIS

I openly criticize Muhammad and the Qur'an, hoping to see many Muslims leave Islam. Because of this, I am called a racist, a bigot, a hate-monger, and an Islamophobe.

But tell me who's more loving:
(1) People who protect Islam from criticism, while young Muslim teens throw away their lives for the sake of jihad.

(2) People who try to convince these young Muslim teens that they shouldn't throw away their lives for a false prophet.
Until someone convinces me that it's okay to sit back and watch young Muslims destroy themselves and others, I'm going to try to show them the truth. And I'm going to do it because I love them.
Mohammed Hamzah Khan
CHICAGO (Washington Post) — Mohammed Hamzah Khan, 19, rose before dawn on Oct. 4 to pray with his father and 16-year-old brother at their neighborhood mosque in a Chicago suburb.

When they returned home just before 6 a.m., the father went back to bed and the Khan teens secretly launched a plan they had been hatching for months: to abandon their family and country and travel to Syria to join the Islamic State.

While his parents slept, Khan gathered three newly issued U.S. passports and $2,600 worth of airline tickets to Turkey that he had gotten for himself, his brother and their 17-year-old sister. The three teens slipped out of the house, called a taxi and rode to O’Hare International Airport.

Khan was due at work at 6:30 a.m. at a local home-supply store, so he knew his parents wouldn’t miss him when they woke up. The two younger siblings bunched up comforters under their sheets to make it look like they were asleep in their beds.

Their plan was to fly to Istanbul, then drive into Syria to live in the Islamic homeland, or caliphate, established by the Islamic State, the militant group that has massacred civilians in Iraq and Syria and beheaded Western journalists and aid workers.

Khan's Parents
The Khan teens, U.S.-born children of Indian immigrants, each left letters for their parents explaining their motives.

“An Islamic State has been established and it is thus obligatory upon every able-bodied male and female to migrate there,” Khan wrote. “Muslims have been crushed under foot for too long. . . . This nation is openly against Islam and Muslims. . . . I do not want my progeny to be raised in a filthy environment like this.”

His sister wrote: “Death is inevitable, and all of the times we enjoyed will not matter as we lay on our death beds. Death is an appointment, and we cannot delay or postpone, and what we did to prepare for our death is what will matter.”

In their letters, all three teens, who had grown up playing basketball and watching “Dragon Tales” and “Batman,” told their parents how much they loved them and asked them to join them in Syria, but made it clear they would probably never see them again, except in the afterlife. They begged them not to call the police.

In the afternoon, FBI agents knocked on the Khans’ front door, armed with a search warrant.

“For what?” asked the teens’ shocked father, Shafi Khan.

“Your kids have been detained at the airport, trying to go to Turkey,” an agent said.

“We were stunned,” said Zarine Khan, their mother. “More like frozen. We were just frozen.” (Continue Reading.)
To understand why so many young Muslims conclude that Islam commands them to wage jihad, watch this:

The Lawfare Project: Join the Conversation

There are plenty of problems we need to deal with. But if we don't win the free speech battle, we'll lose the other battles, because we won't even be free to discuss them.

Here's a new video by the Lawfare Project on freedom of speech and the necessity of defending it (especially against the implementation of Sharia).

Muslim Threatens to Kill Me for My "Who Killed Muhammad?" Video

More than three years ago, I posted a video showing (1) that Allah said he would kill Muhammad in a particular way if Muhammad were to invent false revelations, and (2) that Muhammad died in exactly the way Allah said he would die if he were to invent false revelations. Here's the video:

I'm still getting death threats for telling Muslims what their sources say. Here's the latest response to my video:

Pakistan Sentences Bollywood Actress Veena Malik to 26 Years in Prison for Blasphemy

Politicians and the media continue to defend Islam from criticism. Meanwhile, Pakistani courts are sentencing actors to prison for blasphemy. Any idea how Veena Malik will be treated in prison?
Veena Malik
Fox News—An actress was sentenced to 26 years in jail by a Pakistani anti-terrorism court for "malicious acts" of blasphemy, the U.K.s' Independent reports.

Veena Malik, along with her husband Asad Bashir Khan Khattak and Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman, the owner of the network that aired the "blasphemous" television program, have been given 104 years combined in prison by the Pakistani court.

The offending program aired several months ago and features a couple reenacting their wedding vows based on the marriage of the Prophet Mohammed's daughter.

The judge asked for immediate arrest of Malik, her husband and Shakil-ur-Rahman who are reportedly living in the United Arab Emirates.

"26 years! Come on. 26 years is a lifetime...But I have faith in higher courts in Pakistan," Malik said according to Gulf News. (Continue Reading.)

Andrew Livingston vs. Anthony Rogers: Was Muhammad a True Prophet?

Was Muhammad a true prophet? Muslim convert Andrew Livingston certainly thinks so. But can his reasons for believing in Muhammad stand up to scrutiny? In this debate, Christian apologist Anthony Rogers puts Livingston's arguments to the test. Sam Shamoun moderates.
