Umdat al-Salik (The Reliance of the Traveler), a manual for the Shafi’i school of Islamic jurisprudence certified as “reliable” by Egypt’s al-Azhar University, explains that non-Muslims are:
… “forbidden to ring church bells or display crosses, recite the Torah or Evangel aloud, or make public display of their funerals and feastdays, and are forbidden to build new churches” – o.11.5 (6,7)
But don’t just take one book’s word for it; take the evidence. We have seen similar cases regarding bells and audible non-Islamic worship in Muslim-majority areas quite distant from one another, includingÂ Russia,Â Bosnia,Â Somalia,Â Gaza,Â the Philippines, and evenÂ Britain.

The ideologically-driven illogic of New York Times columnist Roger Cohen
Ah yes, the New York Slimes,Â Â where each and everyone rides on the Â coattails of Walther Duranty:
New York Times columnist Roger Cohen exceeded all of our expectations in his remarkably illogical column below (highlights added) entitled “Breivik and His Enablers.” Space does not permit a detailed analysis of what he wrote, but here are the high points.
(1) He uses the phrase “racist Islamophobia,” and just to be sure we don’t miss the point, he later writes of “anti-Muslim racism.” As Cohen surely knows, Islam isn’t a “race” any more than Christianity is. But playing the race card to demonize those with whom you disagree has become standard operating procedure for people like Cohen.
(2) He foolishly and falsely compares Breivik’s illusions of creating a new Knights Templar order to the call for the restoration of the caliphate by Osama bin Laden. The problem for Cohen, however, is that there is a global Islamist movement for the restoration of the caliphate, led by the Muslim Brotherhood. As far as we know, there is no worldwide movement to resurrect the Crusades.
(3) Cohen calls Rep. Peter King and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich “ideological fellow travelers” of Breivik. King’s “crime,” of course, is to have the audacity to hold congressional hearings investigating Islamic radicalization in America. Cohen can’t just disagree with King’s actions; he has to demonize King by calling him a “fellow traveler” with a maniacal mass murdering terrorist.
(4) Cohen writes, “Muslims have not done enough…to denounce those who deformed their religion in the name of jihadist murder.” For Cohen to claim that the practice of violent jihad is a deformation of Islamic doctrine betrays an astonishing ignorance of that doctrine as well as its history.
We would suggest, for starters, that Cohen read the history behind why Thomas Jefferson purchased a Koran. (The short answer is that he wanted to understand why the Barbary Pirates were engaging in what they called “jihad” against Americans.) He could then move on to Andrew Bostom’s The Legacy of Jihad.
No doubt we will see more of the ideologically-driven illogic displayed in Cohen’s column. The reason is simple: the apologists for radical Islam cannot defend the facts about radical Islam, so their only play is to attempt to silence anyone who exposes the truth. This includes the shameful exploitation of a horrendous tragedy in Norway.
Christian Prayers Offend Muslims
In the wake of the Islamic supremacist anti-free speech firebombing in Paris, Hamas-linked CAIR is yet again trying to portray Muslims as victims. This time, they’re pretending that Muslims in the Detroit area are threatened by Christians who are coming to the city to pray. Perhaps Dawud Walid of Hamas-linked CAIR is so used to Muslims storming out of mosques after hearing the Friday sermon and rioting or terrorizing non-Muslims that he assumed a Christian gathering would work the same way. “Christian call to prayer riles Muslims: Mosques get warned to up security ahead of Ford Field event,” by Oralandar Brand-Williams and Shawn D.
