Ladies and gentlemen, this is the reformation that everyone claims Islam is in need of. The problem is that it is reforming back to its real self. What islam needs is not a reformation but a liberalization which cannot happen by design of Islam itself, but can be imposed by force as we saw with the Colonial era.
1. More on the sickeningly deadly attack on a mosque likely run by a liberalizer of Islam by Boko Haram.
Boko Haram terrorists sprayed fleeing Muslim worshippers with bullets as they fled the main mosque in Kano, following a multiple suicide bombing attack at Friday prayers, slaughtering up to 200 people.
Mansur Liman, head of the BBC’s Hausa service, told BBC News: “Although not official at the moment it is believed around 200 people have been killed in this attack. Somebody who went to the nearby hospital told us he has never witnessed anything as horrible as this.”
A FORMER nurse whose incapacity benefit was stopped after a controversial fitness test took her own life with a fatal cocktail of drugs, an inquest heard.
Jacqueline Harris, 53, was partially sighted, needed a stick to walk and was in constant pain in both hands.
“I received a phone call last Tuesday and heard the concert was cancelled for all churches involved,” she said.
“Because of one person, no one has the option now to attend.”

In its war to create a caliphate across Syria and Iraq, the Islamic State is opening a front in North Africa, where affiliated militants are wreaking havoc in eastern Libya and Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula — presenting a complex challenge for Washington and its allies in the region.
One said that they are not “at the behest of any authority other than Islam.” We have seen this again and again, all over the West, as it is a mainstream Islamic belief that Muslims do not owe allegiance to any Infidel authorities. Those Infidel authorities, however, persist in refusing to understand what they are seeing.
A MUSLIM Imam who lectures on non-violence and advises the German government on interfaith issues has been arrested in Germany for beating up his wife.

Sheikh Abu Adam, 40, who bears a resemblance to Osama bin Laden, is now on remand in Munich while his wife, 31, is being guarded by police.

7. Pakistan: Accusations of blasphemy soar:
just one in 2011; over 100 in 2014. More than half of the 62 people murdered in the wake of blasphemy allegations since 1990 were killed in the past five years, according to figures collated by a Pakistani human-rights group that fears even to be identified. “Blasphemy” can now include spelling errors by children or throwing away a visiting-card bearing the name “Muhammad”.
