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.

Hunting the Unicorn of Moderate Islam

American Thinker 3 January 2013
By Glenn Fairman

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.

Who can doubt that in time the faint defiant murmurs of "peaceful Islam" will ultimately become qualitatively indistinguishable from the bloody rancor of the vox bellicose?

 
 

ICLA’s OSCE Mission In 2012 – Reflections

ICLA December 23 2012

OSCE logo

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.

 

• A Day of Solidarity with Persecuted Christians

EuropeNews, December 12 2012
By Henrik R. Clausen

Each year in Vienna, Austria, Christian Solidarity International organizes an event day for the sake of persectuted Christians on December 10th, the day of the Universal Human Rights Declaration.

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.

 

Guess how many Islamic terror attacks since 9/11? Astonishing rampage in name of 'religion of peace'

WND.com 5 December 2012
By Bob Unruh

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.

Islam Destroys Intellect – An Egyptian Apostate

faithfreedom.org 31 October 2012

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.

 

A psychopathological profile of the prophet Mohammad - Part 1 of 5

EuropeNews 25 October 2012
By Coorosh

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.
