Horrendous Killing of Falsely Accused Afghan Woman Filmed, While Pakistan Keeps Capital Blasphemy Laws in Place [+video]

By Michael W. Chapman. As the police stood by and watched, a 27-year-old Muslim woman was brutally murdered by a mob in Kabul, Afghanistan after she was falsely accused of burning a Quran by an Islamic cleric.

The young Muslim woman, Farkhunda Malikzada, was viciously beaten, stoned, deliberately run over by a car, thrown into a dry river bed, crushed with larger stones, and then set on fire.

It was later determined by the Afghanistan Ministry of Hajj and Religious Affairs that Farkhunda Malikzada had not burned a Quran.

WARNING GRAPHIC CONTENT:

Although the murder of Farkhunda occurred in March 2015, the New York Times in recent months was able to collect cell-phone videos and pictures of the lynching from sources in Afghanistan and online, and compiled a lengthy video of the horrific crime, which it published at nytimes.com on Dec. 26, 2015.

Pakistan Pledges Not to Amend Law That Imposes Death Penalty for Blasphemy

By Patrick Goodenough. Muslim radicals ended a four-day sit-in in a high-security “red zone” near Pakistan’s federal parliament, claiming victory after the government late Wednesday gave assurances it will not seek to amend the country’s notorious blasphemy laws or show leniency to anyone convicted under them.

The government’s pledge to the protesters came just days after a deadly Easter Sunday bombing in Pakistan’s second-biggest city underlined anew the threats faced by minority Christians both from terrorists and from Islamist extremists like those at the sit-in in the capital.

The protesters, estimated at 25,000-strong at the peak of their demonstration, are supporters of a police officer executed a month ago for the 2011 murder of a provincial governor he was paid to protect. Bodyguard Mumtaz Qadri became a hero to many fundamentalist Muslims after killing Punjab governor Salman Taseer, whom he had accused of blasphemy.

During the sit-in some protesters, members of radical Sunni groups known for their zeal for Mohammed and the Qur’an, clashed with police and set fire to buses and bus shelters.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had ordered that the protest be brought to an end, peacefully, by Wednesday. Pakistani media reported that protest leaders declared victory after talks with government officials netted them several of their listed demands.

Hamtramck

Tempers Flare Over Loud Islamic Prayers in ‘Muslimville, USA’

Residents of Hamtramck, Michigan – the area dubbed “Muslimville, USA,” by one newspaper after its population shifted from 90 percent Polish to mostly Muslim – complained at their most recent city council meeting the community center’s blasted calls to prayer were simply too loud . . .

“Just turn it down a little bit,” said one resident, Jeanette Powell, telling the Hamtramck Review the prayer calls start at 6 a.m. and the sound level was “overbearing.”

Another resident [Carol Marsh] said Ideal Islamic Center officials “lied” when they assured nearby residents, including those at the Hamtramck Senior Plaza apartments, the facility would not be used as a mosque . . .

Sakrul Islam, with the center, said Marsh was mistaken, that an Islamic center “covers everything,” and that if she continued to make such claims he would file a defamation lawsuit, the newspaper said. He also accused Robert Zwolak, a city council member who lives in the senior apartment complex, of fueling complaints because “he’s against Muslims,” he said, the Hamtramck Review reported.

This isn’t the first time the Muslim community’s faced such complaints. In 2015, in a story that opened with “Welcome to Muslimville, USA,” the New York Daily News cited several residents as complaining about the early morning Muslim calls to prayer.

Muslim Family Goes out to Eat on Christmas Eve, 4 Words Left on Their Bill Blow Them Away

It often seems the media are attempting to condition Muslims to believe that all Americans hate them and will attack them over the least provocation. So, when one Muslim family decided to go out to eat at an Olive Garden restaurant near Augusta, Georgia they were guarded. But what they experienced that night shocked them and only in the best way possible.

Eslam S. Mohamed and his family decided to go out for a Christmas eve dinner at the chain Italian restaurant. Mohamed told the story of their Christmas eve dinner on his Facebook page where he noted that everyone in the place knew they were Muslims.

“Everyone in the restaurant was knowing that we were Arabs Muslims on the table coz [sic] of the language and the ladies were having scarves over their head (Hijab),” Mohamed wrote on Christmas Day.

The large family of twelve people sat down, had their dinner, and then asked for their bill to pay for the meal. Instead, they only were given a receipt that had already been paid.

Mohamed explained the surprising event on his page:

“After finishing we asked for the receipts and the waitress came to us with that receipt in the picture.” As shown on his page, the receipt had written across it “Paid Merry Christmas Beautiful Family.” (Read more from “Muslim Family Goes out to Eat on Christmas Eve, 4 Words Left on Their Bill Blow Them Away” HERE)

Christian Festival Changed, Cancelled to Spare Muslims’ Feelings

Several schools in Germany have canceled an annual Christian celebration named after Saint Martin and replaced it with the more generic and secular “festival of lights” in consideration of the feelings of thousands of Muslims who’ve migrated to the country in recent days.

On top of that, numerous Dusseldorf daycare centers have outright abolished the celebration altogether, due to “consideration for the refugees,” Infowars reported, citing the Epoch Times.

As Pamela Geller reported on her blog, PamelaGeller.com, the notice of name-change has he dispute over the Saint Martin’s festival has been around for some time,” she wrote. “The left[ist] politician Rudiger Sagel struck two years ago … [and said] the festival should … be renamed to ‘sun, moon and stars’-fest.” (Read more from “Christian Festival Changed, Cancelled to Spare Muslims’ Feelings” HERE)

Watch: Warning to America From Ex-Muslim, Pastor Mulinde

Ex-Muslim, now Christian Pastor Umar Mulinde of Kampala, Uganda, was attacked by Muslims, targeted because he had not only left Islam and converted to Christianity, but also was committed to preaching the gospel. On December 24, 2011 he was attacked with acid, which burned half of his face and the back of his head. The attackers screamed “Allahu Akbar” three times before they ran away.

Crying, he tells his story to Tom Trento, of The United West, while still recovering at the Sheba Hospital in Tel Aviv, Israel. He explains he cries because, “he knows he is doing something right;” because “God is mighty.”

Aged 37 at the time, married with six children, Mulinde was born into a Muslim family. His father leads the Muslim community in Kampala and he and his older brother both finished the Da’wah to Islam, specific teaching, training for Islamic “missionaries” a Da’i’, to convert non-Muslims to Islam.

To Americans, Mulinde declares:

“God Almighty has given you grace. Whatever you do in America influences the world. You have that grace. One thing that Islam is doing to defeat you is causing you to be a coward and fearful.”

He admonishes that Americans must,

“Stand up and speak against the invasion of Islamization, which is going on in your country.”

Americans are privileged– and have an imperative opportunity to lead the world in fighting Islam. But they must first realize Islam is their most serious present danger.

Muslim Starts Stabbing Elderly Woman, Then She Utters These Words and He Stops Immediately

A 78-year-old woman in Jerusalem is crediting God and a Good Samaritan for her ability to escape a recent terror attack. One of numerous violent incidents across the region in recent weeks, Marike Veldman recalled spotting two suspicious men on the bus she was riding last week.

“I thought to myself, ‘What were they doing on a bus at this hour? They should be at work,” she explained.

Within moments, Veldman said the men began praising Allah as one fired shots and the other began stabbing her . . .

Though two individuals died in the attack, Veldman survived – as did 15 other injured passengers – and was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. She said she immediately turned to her faith as she was being stabbed. “I cried constantly in Dutch,” she said, “‘Lord Jesus! Lord Jesus! Help me! Help me!’”

As she called out to Jesus, Veldman said the man backed away, allowing her to escape through the bus’s open door. (Read more from “Muslim Starts Stabbing Elderly Woman, Then She Utters These Words and He Stops Immediately” HERE)

Would Carly Fiorina Still Support a Muslim President After Seeing This Poll?

Ben Carson’s comment that he would not support a Shariah-compliant Muslim for president because Islamic law is incompatible with the U.S. Constitution led to the former brain surgeon’s roasting among media talkers and politicians of all stripes . . .

“For any candidate to suggest that someone should not be elected president because of what he or she may believe is nothing short of religious bigotry,” said Rep. Andre Carson, D-Ind., one of two Muslim congressmen.

But what do American Muslims believe?

The Council on America-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, which has been most vocal in its calls for Carson’s withdrawal from the GOP presidential race, claims to speak for American Muslims. The organization has a long history of ties to terrorists, as documented by WND’s “Rogues gallery of terror-tied leaders,” but it is still treated by most U.S. media as the Muslim equivalent of the American Civil Liberties Union . . .

A poll commissioned in May 2015 by the Center for Security Policy showed that 51 percent of American Muslims preferred that they should have their own Shariah courts outside of the legal system ruled by the U.S. Constitution. And nearly a quarter believed the use of violent jihad was justified in establishing Shariah. (Read more from “Would Carly Fiorina Still Support a Muslim President After Seeing This Poll?” HERE)

Gun Store Owner Bans Muslims, Then This Happens Immediately [+video]

In response to the Chattanooga shootings, Andy Hallinan, the owner of Florida Gun Supply in Inverness said he felt threatened by Muslims in his store and that it was his “right” to deny firearms and training to anyone he deems a threat.

As Hallinan says in his video, “I’m not going to be asking every person who walks in what their religious background is. That’s not my business, but I do have the right to deny firearms and training to anyone I deem as a threat.”

“I have a moral and legal responsibility to ensure the safety of all patriots in my community, and so effective immediately, I’m declaring Florida Gun Supply as a Muslim-free zone. I will not arm and train those who wish to do harm to my fellow patriots.”

“I’m not going to be asking every person who walks in what their religious background is. That’s not my business,” he told WFLA. “But I do have the right to deny firearms and training to anyone I deem as a threat.”

Predictably CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations, called on the Justice Department to investigate possible federal civil rights violations by the Florida business. They also had their attorney, Jenifer Wicks, send a complaint to then Attorney General Eric Holder when another store owner, Jan Morgan, decided against arming Muslims.

Student Visas From Muslim Countries on the Rise, 127K Last Year

How many more potential Islamic terrorists like Mohammad Youssef Adbulazeer are living freely in this country? And to what extent is our political class going to continue their suicidal policies?

Several months ago, we estimated that roughly 1.62 million individuals from predominantly Muslim countries have emigrated here since 9/11. We counted all of the green cards issued to foreign nationals of 43 countries with either near-100% Muslim population or an overwhelming majority of Muslims. While some of these individuals are likely non-Muslims, we noted that it is a pretty fair estimate of the number of Muslim immigrants and coincides with the Pew estimate of 100,000 million Muslim immigrants per year.

A quick search and tally of the data at the IIE for the same 43 predominantly Muslim countries reveals that 127,332 student visas were granted to students from these same countries. Our government does this every year and the trend is only growing. That means that 14% of the annual student visas are from Muslim countries, an even higher share than immigrant visas relative to the total immigrant population.

By far, the largest number of visas come from Saudi Arabia (remember 9/11?), topping out at 53,919 for the last academic year. As we noted last year, the Saudi government has unlimited funds to pay for their international students, and with no caps on F1 visas, they could theoretically send hundreds of thousands of students here every year.

Iran has sent us over 10,000 foreign students as well. What could go wrong?

Oh, and with Mohammad Youssef Adbulazeer on everyone’s mind, it’s important to note that we’ve admitted 7,288 foreign students from Kuwait for that same academic year.

No wonder Arabic is the fastest growing language on U.S. campuses.

Consider this thought for a moment: the college population is almost exclusively between the ages of 18-25. Given that 36% of American Muslims under the age of 45 believe that violence against America can be justified as part of Global Jihad, what percentage of foreign students during the prime age for Jihad coming straight from the Middle East harbor the same sentiments? In that sense, student visas from the Middle East and North Africa represent an even more direct security threat than immigrant visas.

The rapid increase in Muslim foreign students should also raise concerns in the context of the growing push to bring in more “high skilled” STEM students and workers. Liberals often blame Jihad on poverty and lack of a promising future for Muslim youth, but the reality is that many of these young Jihadis are smart and affluent with promising careers. Just look at the lifestyle of the Chattanooga Jihadi and the fact that he held a degree in electrical engineering.

A huge share of the international students from Muslim countries is enrolled in STEM fields, according to the data compiled by IIE. Seventy-nine percent of Iranian students and 42% of Saudi students were enrolled in STEM programs. So just remember when they discuss bringing in more STEM students and workers, there is a high likelihood we would be importing more security risks.

With this entire region embroiled in Islamic upheaval and the shocking success of the global cyber jihad in radicalizing Muslim youth, why in the world would we self-immolate and bring in so many potential security threats?

Obama: Americans Have Distorted Impression of Muslims

Speaking at the annual White House Iftar dinner on Monday night, President Barack Obama explained the unfair stereotypes that Muslim Americans have to deal with in the United States and called on others to support their community.

The Iftar dinner is to honor the Muslim holiday of Ramadan, which marks the time when Muslims believe that the Koran was shown to the prophet Muhammad for the first time. The holiday, which began last week, goes on for a month. During the time, Muslims fast during the day in remembrance of their leader.

In his remarks, the President spoke about the “distorted impression” many Americans have of Muslims.

“Here in America, many people personally don’t know someone who is Muslim,” he said. “They mostly hear about Muslims in the news – and that can obviously lead to a very distorted impression.”

He also said that the dinner “is also a reminder of the freedoms that bind us together as Americans, including the freedom of religion – that inviolable right to practice our faiths freely,” USA Today reported. (Read more from “Obama: Americans Have Distorted Impression of Muslims” HERE)
