Boston University Caves to Islamic Supremacist Demands

February 14, 2014
I work at a university library in Boston, Mass., and books are shelved according to the Dewey Decimal System, not by title or “importance”. Muslim students (most of them from abroad) told administrators that they were offended because the Koran wasn’t given a place of honor on a top shelf, as dictated by Islamic law and custom.
Library staff were then ordered to shift entire sections of books in the stacks so that the Koran could be “honored” appropriately.

Bacha Bazi: The Horrific Practice of Selling Boys to Islamic Men for Sex [VIDEOS]

From Freedom Outpost
By Bethany Blankley | May 21, 2016

Thousands of prepubescent and adolescent boys are sold to wealthy and powerful Islamic men for entertainment and sexual abuse. The most desirable age for dancing boys is 13 or 14 years-old, which means in order to groom them, they must be kidnapped, rented, or bought at a younger age.

In addition to permitting sexual acts with little girls, Islam also allows adult men to perform sexual acts with boys, a practice known as “Bacha Bāzī.”

Bacha bāzī is the transliteration of a Persian phrase (بچه بازی‎‎,), which literally means “boy play.” It’s derived from two Persian words, (بچه) “bacha” meaning “child,” and (بازی) “bāzī” meaning “game.” The Bacha Baz, “pedophile” in Persian, is the perpetrator.  A “bacha bereesh” is a boy without a beard.

Part of Bacha bāzī mostly involves using small boys for child pornography, sexual slavery, and prostitution. Thousands of prepubescent and adolescent boys are sold to wealthy and powerful Islamic men for entertainment and sexual abuse. The most desirable age for dancing boys is 13 or 14 years-old, which means in order to groom them, they must be kidnapped, rented, or bought at a younger age. Boys targeted for sex-trafficking are often found on playgrounds in the poorest neighborhoods. They are stolen, rented, or bought, then groomed, and forced into a life of slavery.

Bacha bāzī is widely practiced throughout Afghanistan, especially after powerful and well-armed warlords like the Northern Alliance commanders used force and coercion to institutionalize this abuse in the 1990’s. Despite the practice of dancing boys being illegal, and punishable by death, most Afghani officials are complicit in the abuse and don’t enforce the law.

Most claim “dancing boys” is solely an Afghani practice. But it’s not: Bacha bāzī is pervasive throughout the Islamic world. The sex-trafficked boys may be referred to in other countries by another term, such as “rent boys.”

The first video is a clip from the documentary, The Dancing Boys of Afghanistan, produced by Afghan journalist Najibullah Quraishi. It first aired in 2010 and won the Amnesty International UK Media Awards in 2011.

The West Must Say “Je Suis Asia Bibi”

From Gatestone Institute
By Giulio Meotti | May 19, 2016 at 4:30 am

  • “I will not convert. I believe in my religion and Jesus Christ. And why should I be the one to convert and not you?” — Asia Bibi.
  • It is the West’s indolence and cupidity that has condemned Asia Bibi to death. No one in Europe has filled the streets to ask for the liberation of this courageous woman, or even to protest Pakistan’s anti-Christian laws.
  • Even Pope Francis stood silent. The emblem of his reticence is the 12 seconds of face-to-face time the Pope had with Bibi’s husband and her daughter in St. Peter’s Square. Francis barely touched the two. His predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, publicly called many times for her release.
  • The mainline Protestant churches of America, too busy demonizing Israel, also stood silent. Meanwhile, Christianity is being erased from its own cradle.

The death sentence for Asia Bibi is like Chernobyl’s nuclear cloud: it contaminates everything around it. After Asia’s arrest, her husband, Masih, and her children went into hiding. They have moved house 15 times in five years. They could not even attend Asia’s judicial hearings. It is too dangerous for them. Her husband was forced to quit his job.

Asia’s “crime” was to use the same water glass as her Muslim co-workers. She was sentenced to death because she is Christian and she was thirsty. “You defiled our water,” the Muslim women told her. “Convert to Islam to redeem yourself from your filthy religion.”

Asia took a deep breath and replied: “I will not convert. I believe in my religion and Jesus Christ. And why should I be the one to convert and not you?”

On November 8, 2010, after just five minutes of deliberation, Asia Noreen Bibi, under Article 295 of the Pakistani Code, was sentenced to death by hanging. The crowd cheered the verdict. She was alone and burst into tears. Next to her there were two policemen, visibly satisfied. In the days after, 50,000 people in Karachi and 40,000 in Lahore took the streets to brandish an image of Asia Bibi with the rope around her neck. They say they will not rest until she is hanged or shot.

Like Most People, President Obama Gets The Crusades Wrong

From The Federalist
By Greg Scandlen | March 4, 2015

President Obama, like many nowadays, think it’s fair to equate Islamist terrorism with the medieval Crusades. It’s not.

crusaders

In light of President Obama’s recent remarks comparing the brutality of the Islamic State to the Crusades, it might be time to take a fresh look at those events. Were they really the one-sided Dark Ages barbarism we have been taught? Were they an early manifestation of Western imperialism and global conquest?

In his landmark book, “God’s Battalions” (HarperOne 2009), Baylor University social sciences professor Rodney Stark suggests otherwise. It is a well-researched chronicle, including 639 footnotes and a bibliography of about 300 other works, yet reads like an adventure story full of military strategy and political intrigue.
 

What Prompted the Crusades

He begins in the final years of Mohammed and describes how a newly united Arab people swept through (Zoroastrian) Persia and the (Orthodox Christian) Byzantine-  controlled areas of Syria, Palestine, Egypt, and North Africa. (Byzantine refers to the Greek-speaking eastern remainder of the Roman Empire.) Eventually Arabs took over control of the Mediterranean islands, most of Spain, and the southern part of Italy, and even reached as far as 150 miles outside of Paris before being turned back by the Franks, or early French.

The Muslims were brutal in their conquered territories. They gave pagans a choice of converting to Islam or being killed or enslaved. Jews and Christians (other People of the Book) were usually but not always treated somewhat better, and allowed to retain their beliefs but under conditions of Sharia subjugation.

But the Muslim-held territories were not monolithic. Stark writes:

Perhaps the single most remarkable feature of the Islamic territories was the almost ceaseless internal conflict; the intricate plots, assassinations, and betrayals form a lethal soap opera. North Africa was frequently torn by rebellions and intra-Islamic wars and conquests. Spain was a patchwork of constantly feuding Muslim regimes that often allied themselves with Christians against one another.

Not surprisingly, there was intense Christian resistance and determination to take back lost territories. Especially effective were the Normans and the Franks in Spain and Italy.
 

The Golden Middle Ages Belonged to Europeans

Western scholars have often characterized this clash of cultures as an Islamic Golden Age versus a European Dark Age, but Stark demolishes this as a myth. He says the best of the Islamic culture was appropriated from the people Muslims conquered—the Greeks, Jews, Persians, Hindus, and even from heretical Christian sects such as the Copts and Nestorians. He quotes E.D. Hunt as writing, “the earliest scientific book in the language of Islam [was a] treatise on medicine by a Syrian Christian priest in Alexandria translated into Arabic by a Persian Jewish physician.” Stark writes that Muslim naval fleets were built by Egyptian shipwrights, manned by Christian crews, and often captained by Italians.  When Baghdad was built, the caliph “entrusted the design of the city to a Zoroastrian and a Jew.” Even the “Arabic” numbering system was Hindu in origin.

And, while it is true that the Arabs embraced the writings of Plato and Aristotle, Stark comments,

Pope Francis’ Jihad on Christianity

From FrontPage Magazine
May 20, 2016 | Raymond Ibrahim

Disturbing pronouncements on the faith from the Vicar of Christ.

thumbrns-pope-isaiah022416
 
The man known as the “Catholic Pope” and the “Vicar of Christ”—but who in light of what follows is probably best referred to by his real name, Jorge Mario Bergoglio—recently gave an interview demonstrating why “so many people think he is the anti-Christ.”

The more salient features follow:

Christ as Warmonger

In classic relativistic fashion, Jorge claims that:

It is true that the idea of conquest is inherent in the soul of Islam. However, it is also possible to interpret the objective in Matthew’s Gospel, where Jesus sends his disciples to all nations, in terms of the same idea of conquest.

Only someone who is either very ignorant or hostile to Christianity can make such a claim.  To state the obvious: Yes, both Christianity and Islam seek to win converts.  However, Jesus’ call to his disciples to “go forth and make disciples of all nations” in Matthew’s Gospel was understood and practiced peacefully.  Disciples preached, people converted.  No violence, no coercion.  In fact, it was Christians—chief among them disciples and evangelists—who were persecuted and killed simply for preaching Christ, first by the pagan Roman empire, later (and still) by Islam.

Conversely, Muhammad said, “I have been sent with the sword between my hands to ensure that no one but Allah is worshipped—Allah who put my livelihood under the shadow of my spear and who inflicts humiliation and scorn on those who disobey my commandments (The Al Qaeda Reader, p.12).”  The Koran is replete with commands to do violence on those who refuse to submit to Islam—and yes, in ways that far transcend comparison with Old Testament violence.

Unlike the spread of Christianity, Islam spread through the sword.  This is a simple, historic fact, acknowledged by more sober European leaders: the overwhelming majority of territory that today constitutes the “Muslim world” was seized from non-Muslims by great violence and bloodshed.  Two-thirds of Christendom—the Mideast and North Africa—was to be swallowed up by Islam a century after its founding.

The making of martyrs is the only similarity that Christianity and Islam share when it comes to how they spread: while Christians were martyred for their faith, Muslims martyred whoever refused their faith.

Dislike for “Christian Roots” of Europe (or Dislike for Truth)

According to Jorge,when I hear talk of the Christian roots of Europe, I sometimes dread the tone, which can seem triumphalist or even vengeful. It then takes on colonialist overtones.”

Dearborn Muslims protest: “We are victims twice — by Islamophobia and ISIS”

dearborn-ISIS
The above photo has apparently been making the rounds on the internet with the claim that it depicts pro-ISIS Muslims marching in Dearborn, Michigan. When I saw the photo my first reaction was ‘Are you f-ing kidding me? Why haven’t I heard about this before now?’ Soooooo, I did a little research. I came across sites debunking the above claim about the photo showing a pro-ISIS march in Dearborn and I also came across some sites reporting about an anti-ISIS rally in Dearborn (the anti-ISIS rally, BTW, only attracted, at most, a hundred Muslims out of a Dearborn Muslim population of over 30,000 – but that didn’t surprise me). I saw a comment on one website that stated the above photo appears to be that of an Ashura procession (see Questioning the wisdom behind Ashura processions) so I did a little more research. The pictures below are from a 2015 Ashura rally in Dearborn. When one compares the above photo with the photos below I think it’s pretty clear the above photo is NOT from a pro-ISIS march as is being claimed. This doesn’t mean Dearborn Muslims are innocent, not by any stretch of the imagination; this just means the above photo isn’t what some are claiming it to be.

muslims-protest

There are thousands of Muslims in Dearborn; why did only 100 show up for this? This is not the first time that attendance at a Muslim rally against terrorism has been decidedly underwhelming. Earlier this month, only 30 Muslims protested against the jihad massacres in Paris. In July 2015, a Muslim rally in Ireland against the Islamic State drew fifty people. In October 2014 in Houston, a rally against the Islamic State organized by the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) drew the grand total of ten people. In August 2013 in Boston, about 25 Muslims rallied against “misperceptions” that Islam was violent. About the same number showed up in June 2013 at a progressive Muslim rally in Toronto to claim that their religion had been “hijacked.”

And back in 2005, a group called the Free Muslims Coalition held what it dubbed a “Free Muslims March Against Terror,” intending to “send a message to the terrorists and extremists that their days are numbered … and to send a message to the people of the Middle East, the Muslim world and all people who seek freedom, democracy and peaceful coexistence that we support them.” In the run-up to the event it got enthusiastic national and international publicity, but it ended up drawing about twenty-five people.

Contrast those paltry showings to the thousands of Muslims who have turned out for rallies against cartoons of Muhammad or against Israel. Here are some headlines from the aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo jihad massacre of Muhammad cartoonists in January 2015:
