What makes the creeping political correctness on Islam so startling is its very newness. It wasn’t so long ago that the right and the left both agreed that as a religion and a political movement, it was dangerously backward and violent.
FromÂ Winston Churchill, “Mahommedan religion increases, instead of lessening, the fury of intolerance” toÂ Karl Marx, “Islamism proscribes the nation of the Infidels, constituting a state of permanent hostility between the Mussulman and the unbeliever”, leading figures on the right and the left held a realistic understanding of Islam. They dismissed it as violent, barbaric, ignorant and dangerous. The right saw Islam as a threat to the Western Christian hegemony. The left viewed it as a reactionary movement of superstitious fanatics. They might praise Arab generals or scientists, but not the creed itself.
The AFP wackjobs of course can’t hold their ink and hasten to smear the resistance with the usual epithets like “nationalists, far right, racists, xenophobes…..”
Members of a Russian far right group Russian patriots gather in Moscow to demand an end to social payments jiziya (tribute) for Muslim republics fiefdoms.
MOSCOW â€” Hundreds of Russian nationalists staged a racism-tinged rally in central Moscow on Saturday to demand an end to social payments for Muslim republics of the volatile North Caucasus region.
What race is Islam again?
The sanctioned gathering came amid spiking social tensions and lingering security fears from a January suicide bombing at the main Moscow airport that killed 37 people and was claimed by the nation’s most feared Islamist warlord.
“We are tired of seeing the Caucasus youth creating mayhem on our streets and at our schools and universities and then going unpunished,” rally co-organiser Alexander Khromov told the Interfax news agency.
The event was officially titled “Stop Feeding the Caucasus!” and included leaders from far-right organisations that rights groups link to deadly attacks on migrants from Russia’s Caucasus and the Central Asian republics.
Teachers did not intervene. Parents have not been told.
The video was taken inside the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center â€“ Boston’s controversial Saudi-funded mega-mosque â€“ during a Wellesley Middle School social studies trip to the mosque, ostensibly taken to learn about the “history of Islam” first-hand. Yet the video reveals that the students are being blatantly mis-educated about Islam.
NEW MOSQUE VID EXCLUSIVE: REP TELLS KIDS ‘HOLY WAR IS A FALSE DEFINITION OF JIHAD’
“Moscow is the only place in the world where over one million Muslims are served in only four mosques. We lack premises for praying. Muslims are allowed to conduct their religious ceremonies in Orthodox churches, but we would rather avoid this extreme measure.” In other words, give us more mosques, or we will take over your churches. Orthodox churches, with their proliferation of icons, are about as unsuited for Islamic prayer, with its abhorrence ofÂ shirk — the association of partners with Allah — and furious iconoclasm, as a building can possibly be. If Muslims begin praying in such churches in large numbers, they will begin demanding that the icons be taken down or covered up — and eventually the places will become mosques in due course, like so many former churches in the Middle East.

Mosques awarded Homeland Security grants
CAIR urges Muslim clerics to cash in on federal funds
While the European Union investigates mosques for ties to Islamic terrorism, the U.S. government is giving mosques security grants that are designed to protect churches, synagogues and other nonprofit groups from Islamic terror.
Most recently, the Islamic Society of Baltimore landed a $15,000 grant from the Department of Homeland Security to upgrade security at its Maryland mosque.
TheÂ Council on American-Islamic Relations since April has been urging leaders of mosques and Islamic schools across the nation to apply for the DHS grants, even though the agency’s program was set up to help protect nonprofit facilities that are at high risk for attacks by Islamic terrorists.

Nineteen “black widow” female suicide bombers trained by an Islamist terrorist known as “the Russian Bin Laden” remain at large and may launch fresh attacks on Moscow, Russian investigators have warned.
According to this story, one of the bombers in yesterday’s attack in Moscow may also have been mentally retarded. Such gallant mujahedin, pressing the most vulnerable members of society into the business of mass murder. And itÂ would not be the first timewe have seen this tactic employed. “Russia hunts 21-strong ‘Black Widow’ cell as first images of suicide bombers are released,” by Will Stewart for theÂ Daily Mail,via JW

Talking about Iran’s nuclear capability on ANB Lebanese television on June 27, 2009, Abd Al-Bari Atwan, editor-in-chief of Al-Quds Al-Arabi newspaper, said, “If the Iranian missiles strike Israel, by Allah, I will go to Trafalgar Square and dance with delight.”Video here.
SAUDI ARABIA is pouring hundreds of millions of pounds into Islamist groups in the Balkans, some of which spread hatred of the West and recruit fighters for jihad in Afghanistan. Â According to officials in Macedonia, Islamic fundamentalism threatens to destabilise the Balkans. Strict Wahhabi and Salafi factions funded by Saudi organisations are clashing with traditionally moderate local Muslim communities.
The terrorist can not be a Muslim and aï»¿ MUSLIM CAN NOT BE A TERRORIST.
We once again affirm: suicide can not be a Muslim and a Muslim can not be a terrorist. Extremism and terrorism have no support in the Holy Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet(SAW).
And let’s do not forget the Georgian… they have all reasonsï»¿ to seek revenge after their failing in Ossetia and recent paranoid behaviour (the fantasy of being attacked by the russians on live TV). Georgia is a very serious suspect.
It was done by the Mossad, the CIA, the FBI, da Joooozzzz, George Bush and those right wingers and fundamentalist Christianists to give Islam a bad name. Have you heard of Tim McVeigh? Anyway, Islam is a Religion of Peace, this is a fight against oppression and injustice, and this was a great victory for Islam, they are martyrs for Allah Â and they will go straight to the 72 virgins….
Now: does the above make sense to you? If it does, chances are you are Islamic!
Female Suicide Bombers? Virgins? WTF? Where are the Virgins?
Chechen terrorist groups have regularly recruited women to act as suicide bombers or “Black Widows”.
The prolonged war on insurgents over the past decade has added to the pool of recruits among women enraged at seeing security services kidnap, torture and kill male relatives, or destroy their family homes as punishment for alleged involvement with terrorist groups
“These people are fighting for Allah, not for freedom, and that is a whole different kind of challenge”
A surprisingly forthright article in the Monitor about the presence of jihadists in Chechnya, which the mainstream media usually does not acknowledge. “20 insurgents killed as Jihadist attacks rise in Russia’s Caucasus,” by Fred Weir for theÂ Christian Science Monitor, February 12 (thanks to Jihad Watch):
One of the biggest thorns in Russia’s side since the Soviet Union’s collapse has been Chechnya, one of seven republics along its southeastern flank known collectively as the north Caucasus.After two wars, Moscow has largely tamed Chechnya’s separatists with the help of strongman Ramzan Kadyrov, though not without cost. An estimated quarter million people have been killed, and the tiny republic has turned into a totalitarian statelet. Dissenters face kidnapping, torture, and extrajudicial execution, says Alexander Cherkassov of Memorial, Russia’s largest independent human rights group.
“Now we are seeing the same methods being applied in Ingushetia and Dagestan,” he says….
But there’s one problem: While the Chechnya rebellion was nationalist, this threat has jihadist overtones.
“The Chechen rebels were originally fighting for independence, to break away from Russia and form their own nation,” says investigative journalist Yulia Latynina. But now “the problem is jihadists; these people are fighting for God, not for freedom, and that is a whole different kind of challenge.”…
That is a distinction that very few analysts have grasped.
But…but…what do Somalia, Yemen, Afghanistan, Iraq and Chechnya have in common? Don’t the learned analysts assure us that those are all separate nationalist insurgencies? And what’s all this about a “war against the infidels”? Doesn’t Sheik Muqtar Robow know thatObama said that the United States “is not and will never be at war with Islam”? Is Sheik Muqtar Robow some kind of Islamophobe?

Sauna must be un-Islamic. Or is it a crime to sweat?
Sauna Jihad. “Growing lawlessness and Islamist violence in Dagestan, Chechnya and neighboring Ingushetia are undermining the Kremlin’s control of its southern flank.” And yet the Kremlin continues to aid the jihad in Iran.
“Seven women shot dead in Russian sauna,” forÂ Reuters, August 14 (thanks to JW):
*Â Â We are officers engaged in a war against brutal terrorists who will stop at nothing, not even at killing children. They are animals and the only way to deal with them is to destroy them. There is no room for legal niceties in a war like this. Only those who were there can truly understand. I have no regrets. My conscience is clear.”
THE hunt for a nest of female suicide bombers in Chechnya led an elite group of Russian special forces commandos to a small village deep in the countryside. There they surrounded a modest house just before dawn to be sure of catching their quarry unawares.
When the order came to storm the single-storey property, dozens of heavily armed men in masks and camouflage uniforms – unmarked to conceal their identity – had no difficulty in overwhelming the three women inside. Their captives were then driven to a military base.
