Islam is perfect. Its been perfected for all times and any place by its founder, Muhammad. Any kind of reform is called ‘bida’ (novelty) and is, you guessed it, haram (forbidden). That’s why, when you see so called ‘reformers’ in Islam, its never about reform; its about taking us back to the days of the prophet, back to the 7th century.
Muslim Reformers’ “Trick” Is No Treat
Ali Sina, an Iranian ex-Muslim writer
, poses the confounding question of our day: how can Muslim “reformers” express reverence for Islam’s founder and yet do their utmost to try to distance themselves from his more violent and draconian ways and teachings, including his call to wage jihad until such time as the infidel submits (to the lowly status Islam forces on him) and agrees to fork over what, in Mafioso terms, would be called “protection money,” but which Islam calls the jizya?
Sina views this sort of compartmentalization as a kind of “trick”. A feat of legerdemain and sleight of hand as the problematic is fudged, misrepresented or outright ignored. (Another tactic, one which Daniel Pipes, who should know better, has been known to employ: assert that Islam must not be “essentialized,” because that’s a disservice to the reform-minded who want to focus only on the fluffy, non-threatening form of jihad that amounts to a personal, internal “struggle” to be a good Muslim.)
Me? I think it’s more a matter of silencing any and all cognitive dissonance that may or may not break through the reformers’ denial barrier every now and them.
How come there is never any “interfaith dialogue” in countries that are ruled by the soldiers of allah? Another worthless ‘debate’ about the profits beard, at Quadrant.
There is nothing “traditional” about the burqa
Paris Opera performers refused to perform for a faceless audience member,
The fuss blew on Sunday, October 19, in French media.
The woman and her companion(s), tourists from one of the Gulf States, were sitting just behind the conductor and were visible to monitors. Their seats were reportedly the most expensive in the opera, costing 231 euros ($294) each.
In Iraq, the show goes on as it must:
The Hypocrisy of Mohammedans Knows No Bounds:
Time Israel turned their backs on these violent terrorists instead of constantly treating them in their own hospitals.
Tel Aviv’s Ichilov Hospital confirms the girl was treated and released a week ago.
This is not surprising — silver-tongued Muslim leaders dupe the West while pursuing supremacist goals. When the toll of jihadi wars becomes impossible to ignore, Muslim leaders like the Sheikh (and Hamas-CAIR) offer limpwristed condemnations of beheadings and such, but never condemn the Islamic texts and teachings that command such actions.
They give Western media and corrupt politicians just enough to silence criticism of the most brutal and extreme ideology on the face of the earth. (Geller)

The Remarkable Ayad Jamal Al-Din Tells The Truth About Islam, Calling It The “Fiqh”
Here. by Hugh Fitzgerald
He’s a Shiite cleric and former Iraqi MP. He insists on telling as much of the truth about Islam as he can without beijng accused of apostasy (for all I know, by now he may well have given up Islam, but for many reasons, he chooses to present himself still as a Muslim, trying to save not Islam, but the Muslim peoples from Islam itself). He focusses on “fiqh” – his synecoche for Islam. And he makes clear the world-wide support for ISIS, from Muslims who from every country where there are large numbers of them clamor to join, and he mentions the “thousands” or “perhaps many more” mosques that actively encourage Believers to support ISIS. He repeatedly says that both the Sunni and the Shiite fiqh support the killing of the Yazidis; both the Sunni and the Shiite fiqh support violence. Only at one point, when the fearful moderator of the program, needing to make sure the program does not get out of hand by too much truth-telling, asks him if he believes Islam itself is a religion of “tolerance and peace” does Ayad Jamal Al-Din say, with deep insincerity, yes, he does, but for 1400 years, it is not the true Islam but the distorting and dangerous fiqh that has manipulated and directed Muslim minds.
This is one of the most instructive of the videos that MEMRI, that indispensable organization and website, has recorded, translated, disseminated. Would that many see it.
Niqabbery Needs Explaining?
Another nauseating story about your typical Aussie mum who floats around ninja style in her garden, growing figs, olives, persimmons and mulberrys she also manages to work full time and run a beauty school. This paragon of virtue is tired of being judged. The answer, according to a friend of the family, is to ‘take out some of her blood and some of their blood just to see that we are all the same’
Sigh….. and our taxes go to fund this nonsense! (Thanks to the Q-Society)

Abbas says international law denies religious freedom for Jews
On Friday, “moderate” Mahmoud Abbas gave a speech telling Palestinian Arabs to do everything necessary to physically prevent Jews from visiting their holiest site:
Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas yesterday called on his people to prevent Israeli settlers from entering Jerusalem’s flashpoint Al Aqsa mosque and use “all means” to protect the site.
“It is not enough to say the settlers came, but they must be barred from entering the compound by any means. This is our Aqsa… and they have no right to enter it and desecrate it,” Abbas said.
On Saturday, Abbas said he wants international law to enforce a ban on Jews from visiting the Temple Mount…
Anne Bayefsky: The UN’s terrorism apologists
Over the past week, the UN’s top legal committee — a General Assembly body where all 193 states are represented — met to discuss terrorism. The webcasts are broadcast globally in multiple languages. The documents are translated and disseminated on a mammoth website free of charge.
It’s a two-step charade. First, since the UN has no definition of terrorism, state sponsors of terrorism happily denounce “terrorism” at the very same time as they promote it. Second, the terrorist funders and weapons suppliers redirect the world’s attention to the supposed “root causes” of terrorism.
Conveniently, the catalog of root causes of terrorism dreamed up in these circles never includes religiously driven bigotry doled out by anti-Semites and misogynist, homophobic sociopaths — whose need to torture, rape and kill requires no deep explanation.
A quick moral inversion, and the terrorist becomes the victim.
The UN was full of such dangerous canards last week.
All 56 member states of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation have signed on to the Islamic Convention on Combating International Terrorism, which gives a green light to killing Israelis, Americans and anybody else deemed fair game. The treaty says: “Peoples’ struggle, including armed struggle against foreign occupation, aggression, colonialism and hegemony, aimed at liberation and self-determination . . . shall not be considered a terrorist crime.”

Universities starting to shun their Islamist foes
Universities are now taking a welcome standard against Islamist extremism, refusing to give a platform to an ideology which threatens not just lives but the freedoms on which universities depend.
Hizb ut-Tahrir can speak at its own conferences. It should not be privileged with a platform at a university.
But who are the people who keep inviting Hizb ut-Tahrir to come speak?
Unsurprising. Dogooders and the service industry demand we do more:
In line with Obama’s foreign policy, which has been consistent since the day he took office:

UK: Christian school “downgraded for failing to invite an imam to lead assembly”
Are any Islamic schools being downgraded for failing to invite Christian priests or ministers to lead assemblies? Doubtful in the extreme. In the wake of the Trojan Horse takeover plot of British state schools, British authorities appear to have decided that the remedy is to further the Islamization of schools. They appear intent on rushing their nation toward civil strife and disintegration. “Christian school ‘downgraded for failing to invite an imam to lead assembly,’” by John Bingham, the Telegraph, October 19, 2014 (thanks to Pamela Geller):
A successful Christian school has been warned it is to be downgraded by inspectors and could even face closure after failing to invite a leader from another religion, such as an imam, to lead assemblies, it is claimed.
