Between the 1950s and early 1970s, a powerful ideology in the Muslim world galvanised itself from the minds and fringes of modern Islamic intellectualism and made its way into the mainstream political arena
But this ideology did not have a single originator. Its roots can be found amongst the works of Muslim thinkers and ideologues in South and East Asia, Africa and in various Middle Eastern (Arab) countries.
Also, once it began being adopted by mainstream leaders and political outfits, it was expressed through multiple names. But today, each one of these names and terms are slotted under a single definitional umbrella: Islamic Socialism.
Lars Hedegaard, the Danish journalist and outspoken critic of radical Islam’s political and cultural agenda, was reduced to phoning in to a TV interview recently because he’s in hiding due to threats on his life
Hedegaard barely escaped death earlier this month when, after opening his front door, a man he later described as an Arab or Pakistani immigrant (or descendant of immigrants) of about 25, disguised as a postman, fired a bullet that barely missed his head.

Getting the go-ahead from the Cairo Islamic Summit, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has been actively trying to get the "denigration of religions" recognized as a criminal offence, according to a top official
"Next session of the Istanbul Process on Islamophobia will be held in the first half of this year, and the session will squarely focus on the issue of criminalizing denigration of religions," said Rizwan Saeed Sheikh, director of cultural affairs at the OIC general secretariat and spokesman for the OIC secretary general.

Afghanistan is going really well, as you might have heard. The negotiations with the Taliban are going smoothly and they just put in a bid to kill 20 percent more women and girls in the new united Afghan government.
