Egyptian mosque turned into house of torture for Christians after protesting Muslim Brotherhood


Muslim Brotherhood hard-liners stormed a mosque in suburban Cairo, turning it into torture chamber for Christians who had been demonstrating against the ruling Muslim Brotherhood in the latest case of violent persecution that experts fear will only get worse.

 FOX News Such stories have become increasingly common as tensions between Egypt’s Muslims and Copts mount, but in the latest case, mosque officials corroborated much of the account and even filed a police report. Demonstrators, some of whom were Muslim, say they were taken from the Muslim Brotherhood headquarters in suburban Cairo to a nearby mosque on Friday and tortured for hours by hard-line militia members.

Amir Ayad lies in a hospital bed after he was beaten by Islamic hardliners who stormed a mosque in suburban Cairo.

“They accompanied me to one of the mosques in the area and I discovered the mosque was being used to imprison demonstrators and torture them,” Amir Ayad, a Coptic who has been a vocal protester against the regime, told MidEast Christian News from a hospital bed.

Ayad said he was beaten for hours with sticks before being left for dead on a roadside. Amir’s brother, Ezzat Ayad, said he received an anonymous phone call at 3 a.m. Saturday, with the caller saying his brother had been found near death and had been taken to the ambulance.

“He underwent radiation treatment that proved that he suffered a fracture in the bottom of his skull, a fracture in his left arm, a bleeding in the right eye, and birdshot injuries,” Ezzat Ayad said.

Officials at the Bilal ibn Rabah Mosque said radical militias stormed the building, in the Cairo suburb of Moqattam, after Friday prayers. “[We] deeply regret what has happened and apologize to the people of Moqattam,” mosque officials said in a statement, adding that “they had lost control over the mosque at the time.” The statement also “denounced and condemned the violence and involving mosques in political conflicts.”

The latest crackdown is further confirmation that the Muslim Brotherhood’s most hard-line elements are consolidating control in Egypt, according to Shaul Gabbay, a professor of international studies at the University of Denver.

“It will only get worse,” said Gabbay. “This has been a longstanding conflict, but now that the Muslim Brotherhood is in power, it is moving forward to implement its ideology – which is that Christians are supposed to become Muslims. “There is no longer anything to hold them back,” he continued. “The floodgates are open.”

Gabbay said the violent militias that allegedly tortured Ayad work hand-in-hand with police and may, in fact, be beyond the control of increasingly unpopular President Mohammed Morsi. While he may benefit from roving bands that attack demonstrators, they also undermine his claim of being a legitimate leader.

“Egyptian society is split over the Morsi regime, and it is not just a Coptic-Muslim split,” Gabbay said. “The less conservative elements of the Muslim society are increasingly uneasy with the Muslim Brotherhood. The Christian Copts are an easy target, but they are not alone in their mistrust of the Brotherhood.”

Experts agreed that the Copts, who comprise roughly 10 percent of the nation’s 83 million people, are not alone in their opposition to the Muslim Brotherhood, which took power in hotly contested elections following the 2011 ouster of longtime President Hosni Mubarak. Moderate Muslims and secular liberals are increasingly uncomfortable with the Islamization of the government.  

Sheikh Ahmed Saber, a well-known imam and official in Egypt’s Ministry of Endowments, has blasted Morsi’s justice ministry for allowing persecution of Copts. “All Egyptians in general are oppressed, but Christians are particularly oppressed, because they suffer double of what others suffer,” Saber told MCN.

YOU GO GIRL! Kicka$$ Saudi woman stands her ground against the Religious Police


Posted: May 25, 2012 | Author: barenakedislam |

“You are not the boss of me.” “I am not leaving (the mall) and what are you going to do about it?” yells the woman at the Police when they try to force her out of the mall for wearing nail polish. “Smile for the camera, boys, you are being broadcast on Twitter and Facebook as we speak.”

If Islam is ever going to become part of the civilized world, it will be because of the women.

Qur’an in Context 1: “Fight Those Who Do Not Believe” (9:29)


Posted on 20 May 12 by Acts17Apologetics via youtube
[One thing I do know, with time I have spent in Muslim countries during military service (during war) “innocent” people does not mean women and children throughout the world, it only means Muslims because if you are not a Muslim, then you are listed as an enemy, “justice” does not pertain to everyone, like everyone is entitled to justice, only Muslims are entitled to justice, the underlying branch of Islamic believes that I came across in my interacting with devout Muslims in Muslim countries are the good things, are only supposed to happen to/with Muslims, no one else, because allah has deemed everyone else enemies because they do not believe nor follow allah’s “word” or “truths”. So remember that, if you read the Qur’an or are talking with a Muslim and a verse comes up talking about violence or peace, look into the surrounding verses…it only applies to Muslims…where the whitewashing of Islam comes in is primarily in the West…where Muslims, like David states, are “spoiled” or “secular” with the West’s culture and Islam’s beliefs, sad thing, if Shari’a Law actually took over America, many a Western Muslim would be killed or at least beaten because they do not follow Islam like fellow Muslims do in Muslim countries.]

Egyptian Islamist Promises Jerusalem-Based Caliphate


by Daniel E. Rogell  •  May 8, 2012

An independent Islamist promised that the Muslim Brotherhood would destroy Israel and form a new Caliphate with its capital in Jerusalem, reports the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI). The speech, given May 1 before thousands of Muslim Brotherhood members and leaders at Cairo soccer stadium, including MB presidential candidate Mohamed Mursi, contradicts assurances of political pragmatism and moderation by the Islamist group.

“We can see how the dream of the Islamic Caliphate is being realized, Allah willing, by Dr. Mohamed Mursi, and his brothers, his supporters, and his political party. We can see how the great dream, shared by us all … The United States of the Arabs will be restored, Allah willing,” said Safwat Higazi, a self-acknowledged anti-Semite with ties to the Brotherhood.

Higazi also announced that the newly established Islamic state would not have its capital in Egypt’s seat of government in Cairo, or in the Islamic holy cities of Mecca or Medina. Rather, it will be in Jerusalem.

“Our cry shall be ‘Millions of martyrs march toward Jerusalem,” he said, echoing other speeches he has given on Egyptian television stations for years. Another speaker then led the crowd in a chant of “Banish the sleep from the eyes of the Jews, come on, you lovers of martyrdom, you are all Hamas… Brandish your weapons, say your prayers, and pray to the lord.”

The clip should come as a surprise to no one, Raymond Stock, an American translator and academic who spent two decades in Egypt, told the Jerusalem Post.

“This is what the Muslim Brotherhood really stands for: the extermination of Israel – and Jews everywhere – as well as the spread and control of radical Islam over the world,” he said. “How anyone can fail to see this boggles the mind – yet its denial is virtual dogma in the global mainstream media, US government and Western academia today.”

MUSLIMS ON A MISSION to convince us that Sharia (Islamic) law is just like American law


Posted: February 4, 2012 | Author: barenakedislam |

Abed Awad of Awad & Khoury, LLP says “Negative connotations surrounding Sharia must be dispelled.”

JURIST  Abed Awad, a Partner at Awad & Khoury, LLP says that while US courts routinely encounter cases where implementing certain principles of Sharia is required, the hysteria surrounding the “intrusive” role of Sharia in US courts is extremely misguided…

[ALL VIDEOS BELOW ARE SHARIA-COMPLIANT. Tell me if you see anything other than 'negative connotations' in them.]

INDONESIAN MUSLIMS KILLING AHMADIYYA MUSLIMS FOR NOT BEING MUSLIM ENOUGH

In November 2010, Oklahoma voters approved an constitution expressly prohibiting Oklahoma state judges from considering international law or Sharia in their decisions. Munir Awad filed a complaint against the Oklahoma State Board of Elections challenging this, alleging that the anti-Sharia amendment to the Oklahoma Constitution, if certified, would violate the Establishment and Free Exercise Clauses of the First Amendment of the US Constitution. More specifically, Awad alleged that the amendment targets his religion for negative treatment and creates excessive state entanglement with religion. Stigmatizing him and other Muslims, Awad proffered, the amendment would inhibit the practice of his religion and would prevent a court from probating his Sharia-compliant last will and testament. The US District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma agreed with Awad, issuing a preliminary injunction against the certification of the amendment pending the litigant’s claims were adjudicated on the merits.

IRAQI KURDISH GIRL STONED TO DEATH FOR FALLING IN LOVE

Last month, in Awad v. Ziriax, the US Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit affirmed the district court’s preliminary injunction but utilized a different constitutional scrutiny standard. The district court below evaluated the plaintiff’s claims under the Lemon v. Kurtzman guidelines. Lemon provides that the scrutinized legislation must have a secular purpose that primarily does not inhibit or advance religion and does not foster excessive government entanglement with religion. The Tenth Circuit reached the same conclusion but evaluated the plaintiff’s claims under the more stringent standard enunciated in Larson v. Valente.

Larson held that the three prong test from Lemon was appropriate in cases where religion benefited at the expense of non-religious citizens. However, when one religion is preferred over another, a strict scrutiny evaluation is required (i.e., a legislation that discriminates among religions is valid on only if it is “closely fitted to the furtherance of any compelling interest”).

The Tenth Circuit held that Oklahoma’s “one sentence” stating that “Oklahoma certainly has a compelling interest in determining what law is applied in Oklahoma courts” failed to “identify any actual problem the challenged amendment seeks to solve.” Without “any concrete problem, any harm Appellants seek to remedy with the proposed amendment is speculative at best and cannot support a compelling interest.”

HANGING HOMOSEXUALS IN IRAN

Without a compelling interest, the Tenth Circuit concluded it was not necessary to proceed to the “closely fitted” prong of the strict scrutiny test. The Oklahoma amendment was deemed unconstitutional. Be that as it may, the Tenth Circuit made several interesting observations about the closely fitted prong. “Even if the state could identify and support a reason to single out and restrict Sharia law,” the Tenth Circuit hypothecated, the amendment is not “closely fitted” as its “complete ban of Sharia law is hardly an exercise of narrow tailoring.”

The anti-Sharia movement seeking to legislate its political agenda is directly at odds with a basic principle laid out by the Supreme Court in Larson: “the clearest command of the Establishment Clause” that mandates “governmental neutrality between religion and religion … The State may not adopt programs or practices … which aid or oppose any religion … This prohibition is absolute.”

So, what is Sharia after all? After briefly describing Sharia, I will use several examples to illustrate the role of Sharia or any religious and/or foreign law for that matter, in a US court.

AFGHAN TALIBAN STONE YOUNG COUPLE TO DEATH

Sharia is more than simply “law” in the prescriptive sense, it is also the methodology through which a jurist engages the foundational religious texts (Qur’an and Sunna) to search for divine will. As a jurist-made law, the outcome of this process of ascertaining divine will is called fiqh (positive law), which is the moral and legal anchor of a Muslim’s total existence. Everything from the way Muslims eat, to how they treat animals and protect the environment, to the way they conduct commercial trade, to the way they solemnize their marriage and to the way their estate must be distributed at death is governed by Sharia, for Sharia dictates every aspect of an observant Muslim’s moral life. Therefore, Sharia is extremely personal to the majority of Muslims regardless of their level of religiosity.

LIMB AMPUTATIONS AS PUNISHMENT

Could not get the video clip to function properly, so try here if you would like to see the video clip (very graphic) click here

Of course, this type of relationship with religion applies to most devout Christian, Jews, Hindus and others, for religious principles and laws are very personal to all religious Americans. Whether it is Jews submitting to the jurisdiction of Rabbinic courts, Christians submitting to Christian Conciliation tribunals or US political activists advocating a religious position on abortion, capital punishment, sex education, same-sex marriage and many other issues, religion and religious law has been alive and thriving in the US since its founding. Of course, the role of religious law or religious principles in the US court system continues to be subject to public policy and constitutional constraints. In the end, however, the US Constitution is the law of the land.

The modern manifestations of Sharia are either a source of legislation or actual nation-state law in the majority of Muslim countries. Sharia is the supreme law of the land in Saudi Arabia. Islamic law is a primary source of the family law codes of Egypt, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and many other Muslim countries, and Sharia is the gap filler in almost all of the civil codes of Muslim countries.

SUDAN WOMAN BEATEN FOR WEARING PANTS IN PUBLIC

The globalization of domiciles, marriages, divorces, corporations and commercial transactions requires US courts to regularly interpret and apply foreign law — including Islamic law — to everything from the recognition of foreign divorces and custody decrees, the validity of marriages, the enforcement of money judgments or the damages elements in a commercial dispute or negligence matters.

Sharia is relevant in a US court either as a foreign law or as a source of information to understand the expectations of the parties in a dispute. As an attorney, consultant or expert witness I have handled more than 100 matters involving a component of Sharia or the laws of the Middle East. I will use several examples to explain the actual role Sharia or the laws of the Middle East play in litigation in the US.

A, a New York resident, married B, a UK resident, in a European country. Their marriage was solemnized by a Muslim clergy. The parties live in both countries. They have one child together. B filed for divorce in England. A countered, alleging that their marriage was not legal. Which jurisdiction governs the validity of the marriage and the place of the marriage, UK law or New York law? If New York law governs, the marriage would be valid as long as the marriage was valid under Sharia.

IRAQI BEHEADING

I could not get this video clip to post correctly, but go here and see the Nick Berg video (very graphic, but proves what Islam does) click here

A, an employee of a US corporation negligently caused the death of B in a country utilizing Sharia. The estate of B institutes an action against A in the US. Based on US conflicts of law, the law where the tort occurred would govern the dispute. The court would require expert testimony regarding the tort law of the country using Sharia, which would include issues relating to Sharia.

A, a Saudi company, enters into a joint venture agreement with B, a US company. Their joint venture agreement provides that Saudi law would govern any disputes. A sues B in state court. State court applies Saudi law to the dispute. Saudi law is based on Sharia law. The primary issue of the dispute is then whether Sharia law provides for consequential damages.

A and B are married. They have lived in New York for the past twenty years. A and B are originally from Jordan. While A and B are visiting Jordan, A divorces B. Upon return, A seeks to enforce the Jordanian divorce. The court must determine whether the Jordanian divorce should be recognized. In this circumstance, the state judge must determine whether the Jordanian divorce violated American public policy. Where the wife was not a resident of Jordan, did not participate in the Jordanian proceeding and where the majority of the marital assets are in New York, the court is more than likely to hold that the Jordanian divorce violates New York public policy.

FREEDOM OF SPEECH IN SHARIA STYLE

The above examples illustrate Sharia as a foreign law. Sharia, then, is extremely relevant for US judges adjudicating matters within the strictures of our law. Of course, the US judge is applying US conflicts of law to determine the applicable law. In other words, even though the judge is applying a foreign law to the dispute, it is US law that dictates that he apply the foreign law.

Here are two examples of how Sharia is relevant to a US judge not as a foreign law but as a source of information to understand the surrounding circumstances to an agreement or dispute or to clarify an ambiguity or correct a mistake.

ALGHAN TALIBAN BEATING WOMAN IN PUBLIC

A, a New Jersey resident, married B, also a New Jersey resident. Both are Muslim. They had a Muslim Imam solemnize their marriage, which included execution of a Muslim marriage contract. The Muslim marriage contract has a provision called Mahr, which directs the husband to pay the wife the sum of $20,000 in the event of divorce. The wife, A, filed for divorce in the New Jersey Superior Court, seeking the enforcement of the $20,000. The court heard testimony about Muslim marriages, marriage contracts, the meaning of Mahr and related information surrounding the execution of the marriage contract. The judge then considers this information to better understand the expectations of the parties at the time of the marriage and applies New Jersey contract law. The judge enforces the Muslim marriage contract finding it satisfied all of the elements of New Jersey contract law.

BEHEADING OF INDONESIAN MAID IN SAUDI ARABIA

Same facts as above, but B, the groom, at the wedding ceremony, for the first time, is asked to sign the marriage contract for $20,000. Embarrassed and pressured before 300 guests, the groom signed the document. In addition, the document was in Arabic, and he does not read or write Arabic. Several years later, the wife filed for divorce and asks for the $20,000. The New Jersey judge finds that there was no meeting of the minds because of the circumstances surrounding the execution of the document. In other words, the marriage contract between these parties did not satisfy all of the elements of a valid contract under New Jersey law.

In sum, most legal experts would agree with the Tenth Circuit’s conclusions. Why then is there paranoia around the country? Why are warnings that Sharia threatens the constitutional system still raging and picking up steam? Almost every Republican presidential candidate has affirmed his opposition to the imaginary threat of Sharia. For attorneys and legal experts, the above examples are very simple and first-year law student material. These nuances, unique facts and legal subtleties are absent from the discussion about Sharia in America. Their absence is not an innocent coincidence. It is intentional in order to fuel the misinformation and distortion about Islam and Muslims.

MUSLIM PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS

As attorneys, we have an obligation to correct the truth about the role of any foreign law in our system. It is always subject to the limits of the Constitution. That is the law of the land. The politicization of this issue is undermining the integrity of our judicial system and constitutional protections. US judges are equipped with the necessary legal tools to evaluate the legal and factual issues before them without the requirement of bright line rules, especially those that originate out of misinformation, distortion and outright discrimination.

MUSLIM ‘Honor’ Killings and Mutilations in the West are soaring


There were 3,000 reported cases of ‘honor’ violence in the UK alone last year. And now that Barack Hussein Obama has made it so that Muslims comprise the largest segment of immigrants to the U.S., we can expect even more of this kind of ‘honor’ brutality against women.

The precise number of ‘honor’ attacks worldwide is unknown because many are not reported, or are reported as accidents or suicides.
• A Canadian woman was strangled by her father because she refused to wear a headscarf.
• An Italian had her throat slit by her dad while she was held down by three uncles.
• An American woman was run over by her father in his Jeep Cherokee.
• Two sisters were shot by their father in a New York taxi.

Muslims Murder 2 Children of Christian Convert To Punish Him For His “Disloyalty to Islam”


Obama says, “Respect it!” Geller says, “2012!” Muhammad says, “If anyone changes his religion, kill him!”

NEWS ALERT: Nigeria Militants Kill Children Of Christian Convert, Missionaries Say BosNewsLife November 23 (hat tip Jack)

Boko Haram wants to put Nigeria under Sharia, or Islamic, law

ABUJA, NIGERIA (BosNewsLife)– A militant group seeking to enforce Sharia, or Islamic law, throughout Nigeria, has shot and killed two children of an ex-terrorist and “murderer” because he converted to Christianity, well-informed missionaries told BosNewsLife Wednesday, November 23.

Boko Haram, meaning “Western education is a sin”, carried out the killings this month after discovering that a former fellow fighter refused to kill a Christian and instead accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior, explained Rae Burnett, Africa Director of the U.S. based Christian Aid Mission (CAM) group.

Burnett told BosNewsLife that the father and Boko Haram militant “was poised to slit the throat of his Christian victim” during November attacks in northern Nigeria that killed at least over 130 Christians, including missionaries, when “he was suddenly struck with the weight of the evil he was about to commit.”

Dropping his machete, the man ran to the nearest church, asking a pastor for help, Burnett said.

INDIGENOUS MINISTRY

The pastor referred him to a CAM-supported indigenous ministry, where “native missionaries are reaching remote villages with the message of Christ,” she added.

“When the call came, the ministry leader was grieving the loss of several close missionary friends who were murdered in the Yobe State slaughter. He immediately met with the confessed killer and joyfully led him to Christ. He is discipling him in a secret location because of the extreme danger.”

Burnett declined to identify the former Muslim militant and missionaries, citing security concerns.

“After meeting the Lord, the converted terrorist [and] murderer called his former colleagues to testify what had happened to him without disclosing where he was,” she said.

CHILDREN KIDNAPPED

However, “Upon discovering the man’s conversion to Christianity, Boko Haram members invaded his home, kidnapped his two children and informed him that they were going to execute them in retribution for his disloyalty to Islam. Clutching his phone, the man heard the sound of the guns that murdered his children,” the CAM official added.

There was no known published comment about the specific attack by Boko Haram, but the reported murders were part of what President leader Goodluck Jonathan called “heinous violence” which began November 4 mainly in and around Damaturu, the capital of Nigeria’s northern Yobe state.

Christian missionaries said that during the attacks Muslim “extremists” of Boko Haram also demanded that Christians recite the Islamic creed. Those who refused were reportedly butchered on the spot.

Additionally, “among the “devastation and destruction left in the wake of Boko Haram’s violence were 10 church buildings set aflame while Christians remained trapped inside,”  added Burnett, who has close knowledge about the situation.

Though “severely traumatized,” the former Boko Haram fighter who lost his children “is growing in the knowledge of Christ through the loving care he is receiving from his brothers and sisters in the ministry that is sheltering and training him,” she said. “He knows he is called to become a missionary to Nigerian Muslims.”

CONVERSION WELCOMED

It was not immediately clear whether he would hand himself over to authorities for possible wrongdoing in the past, but Burnett made clear his conversion came as a boost for an “indigenous missionary ministry” which “has been working tirelessly to take the Gospel to Nigeria’s unreached Islamic northern states.”

Areas where CAM missionaries work are dominated by Muslim Hausa and Fulani tribes, many of whom are reportedly illiterate and remotely located.

“Millions have never even heard that Jesus died [and rose up from the death] for them,” Burnett said.

She claimed that despite “the extreme difficulties involved in reaching Muslims with the Gospel” several former Muslims “have made a commitment to follow Christ.”

Burnett said several ex-Muslims facing “the danger of persecution or death from the Islamic community and even family members,” are brought to “a safe location while they are discipled and trained in the Word of God.”

GOVERNMENT PRESSURED

The government of Nigeria, Africa’s most populous country, has come under international pressure to improve protection of minority Christians in northern areas.

Nigeria’s over 160 million people are divided almost in half between Muslims living mainly in the north and Christians in the south, according to several estimates. President Jonathan has pledged to send extra troops to areas of sectarian friction, but Burnett said he faces an uphill battle.

The Boko Haram’s “goal is to force Sharia law throughout Nigeria” targeting “secular education by bombing schools and universities, ” the CAM director said. She added that while attacks are often prompted by local issues, they also aim at “anything that is perceived to be foreign influence.”…
