When Muslims Are More ‘Radical’ than Islamists

What are the differences between the traditional Muslim and the so-called “Islamist”?  As words dealing with Islam continue to morph and multiply, it is important to differentiate, for there are real, if subtle, differences. A recent Arabic talk show on Egypt’s former president Hosni Mubarak’s trial sheds some light.  The question was whether Mubarak, in […]

Why the Muslim Beard Bodes Trouble

To develop a thorough understanding of Islam, one must learn to “connect the dots.”  For instance, Muslims who adhere to non problematic aspects of Islam, indirectly indicate their acceptance of problematic aspects of Islam—such as enmity for infidels, death for apostates, subjugation for women, and so on. Consider the Muslim beard.  Because Muhammad wanted his […]

Mubarak Deceived Israel Like Muhammad Deceived Infidels?

In light of ousted president Hosni Mubarak’s ongoing trial, Western readers may be surprised to learn who some of Mubarak’s staunchest defenders are: Salafi Muslims, that is, those Muslims who practice the 7th century Islam of Muhammad, often referred to as “radicals.” Sheikh Mahmoud Amer, leader of Ansar al-Sunna in Damanhur, recently appeared on the […]

How Jihad Influenced the Norway Massacre

In his manifesto, Anders Breivik, the perpetrator of the Norway massacre, wherein some 80 people were killed, mentioned the Crusades and aspects of it as an inspirational factor. Predictably, Western elites—especially through the MSM—have begun a new round of moral, cultural, and historical relativism, some even conflating the terrorist with former President Bush, who once used […]

Is Simple Attention the Islamists’ Greatest Enemy?

In a world paralyzed by political correctness and warped philosophies, attention is proving to be one of the greatest enemies of Islamist encroachment. Consider the difference between pre- and post-September 11: A decade after the 9/11 jihad got the West’s attention, many people — perhaps not unlike yourself — have become aware of Islam and […]

Muslim Brotherhood: “Impose Islam…Step by Step”

Things are looking good for Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, the grandfather of all Islamist groups. Despite the organization’s hegemonic aspirations—which include “eliminating and destroying the Western civilization … so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions”—the Obama administration recently announced that it “welcomes dialogue” with the Brotherhood; so did […]

Rationalizing Pedophilia in Islam

Earlier this month we saw—or rather, were once again reminded—that Islam permits pedophilia in the guise of “marriage”: Top Saudi cleric, Dr. Salih bin Fawzan, issued a fatwa asserting that there is no minimum age for girls to marry, “even if they are in the cradle,” and that the only criterion is that “they are […]

Zakaria Botros: Islam’s Scourge Returns

Scourge of Islam; lover of Muslims

Father Zakaria Botros, also known as Islam’s “Public Enemy #1,” is back. From around 2005-2010, this 76 year-old Coptic priest was Islam’s bane. Appearing weekly on Arabic satellite, where he was viewed by an estimated 60 million people worldwide, mostly Muslims, he meticulously exposed any number of theological problems with Islam—all from Islam’s own books—while […]

Pakistan’s Christian ‘Sex-Slaves’: A Case Study

Earlier we saw Egyptian preacher Huwaini and Kuwaiti political activist Mutairi call for the reinstitution of sex-slavery.  Before dismissing their position as aberrant, that is “radical,” for the record, here are respected Muslim scholar Majid Khadduri’s thoughts on the matter: The term spoil (ghanima) is applied specifically to property acquired by force from non-Muslims. It […]

How Islamic Absurdities Prove Islamic Violence

Sheikh demonstrates how far up his rectum the rebellious man's arm was shoved for ignoring Muhammad's command

The other day I saw a video of a sheikh warning Muslims against disregarding Muhammad’s sunna, or the rules and customs the prophet prescribed for Muslims. To support his point, he read a hadith wherein Muhammad told Muslims: “When you wake up from sleep to pray, wash your hand before you put it in the […]
