Yusuf al-Qaradawi, Spiritual Guide to the Muslim Brotherhood and popular Al-Jazeera television personality, whose oeuvre of Sharia supremacism and traditional Islamic Jew-hatred inspired the Orwellian-named Al-Qaradawi Centre for Islamic Moderation and Renewal in Qatar, and The Arab Spring itself, has once again aired his Sharia-compliant views on apostasy.

U.N. human rights expert has accused Saudi Arabia of violating international law by beheading an underage Sri Lankan domestic worker Rizana Nafeek on charges of killing a baby in her care in 2005.
She was sentenced to death in 2007, and ignoring appeals from the Sri Lanka government for a reprieve of her life, she was beheaded in the town of Dawadmy, near the capital Riyadh, on Wednesday morning.

Sabatina James, an ex-Muslim of Pakistani origin, explains the dire situation for those in Pakistan and elsewhere who do not accept Islam as their religion, but are finding that Christianity is a more humanitarian religion and are putting their faith in Jesus. A human rights disaster usually ignored by our governments.

In hunting the unicorn of moderate Islam, the West has occupied itself by passing through a mental gauntlet of Herculean moral contortions in separating the proverbial sheep from the goats.
As I see it, those "moderate" voices of Islam, which have been protesting the violence of their brethren by thundering at the volume of a hushed whisper, will diminish even more fully as the Islamicist ascendency moves towards its apex.
ICLA December 23 2012
The month of December is a useful time to reflect on the year that is about to pass into history. 2012 has been a year in which human rights in Western countries have suffered sustained attack. ICLA has been at the forefront of bringing such abuses to public attention. This does not make ICLA popular with the governments that are presiding over such activities. Its activists may suffer unwanted attention from those with power. However, as an organisation and as individual activists we are willing to be unpopular in the eyes of the powerful. Even if, as individuals, we have our lives turned upside down we will continue to speak out for what is right.

The first event of the day was a press conference featuring Sabatina James, an aposstate from Islam who now, at the age of 30, has dedicated her life to protect Islamic women and help them to gain independence in parts of the world generally patriachial to the extreme. Predictably, Islamists in several countries disagree intensely with her activities, creating a constant need for bodyguards and police protection.

A little less than every five hours, somewhere around the world a Muslim is carrying out a fatal jihadist attack.
These are not the regular beatings and vandalism against Christians, Hindus and Buddhists but religion-oriented attacks in which someone dies at the hand of a member of the”religion of peace.” A website called "The Religion of Peace” has listed more than 20,000 such fatal attacks since Sept. 11, 2001.

Dispatches reporter Antony Barnett meets former Muslims who now live under the threat of reprisals from their former communities. Many are still living in fear. He interviews a family who have been driven out of their home and a convert whose brother was beaten close to death.

Editor’s Note: This is a worthy email of an apostate from Egypt. I chose not to edit the language too much, except for the bare minimum to keep it authentic to the message of the writer.
I am also adding a quote from Ayesha Ahmed that I saw fitting to post at the beginning. At the end I added a recommendation for a further reading another posted article by Mumin Salih. Mumin Salih’s article on the making of a Muslim is right at the center of this apostate’s story.

Mohammad’s schizophrenic disorder
Depicting a psychological profile of Mohammad has been, because of the Quran’s many mistakes, incomprehensible verses, contradictions, inconsistencies, fallacies, errors, and absurdities, a central issue for those who have been researching on Islam. As examples, I mention two classic scholars: Aloy Sprenger, in his fascinating three-volume work about Mohammad and Islam (das Leben und die Lehre des Muhammed), categorizes Mohammad as having suffered from hysteria.
He then goes through hallucinations that could emerge by hunger, thirst, loneliness and religious enthusiasm. He explains over 60 pages, based on psychological knowledge at that time, with the help of single case stories and examples from newspaper to prove his diagnosis. It is very much likely that he would have come to the correct diagnosis if the disorder schizophrenia were known at that time.

In a series of articles earlier this month (see the bottom of this post for a complete list) we reported on the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Human Dimension Implementation Meeting (HDIM) in Warsaw.
The "Human Dimension” is one of three general categories within the OSCE. It gives governments, NGOs, and members of civil society in all the member states of the OSCE the opportunity to send representatives to meetings where human rights policies and initiatives are discussed.
