Excellent point by professor Thomas Hoffmann (photo above): Violent Muslims react on the Quran and the Quran’s commandments on how to react on critisim and towards non-Muslims and non-Islamic values. Not on “racism”, “islamophobia” etc…
Translated from Uriasposten:
“‘There is a need to understand the hostility towards the West and Western values on its own terms,’ says professor in religious history Thomas Hoffmann: ‘We must believe what people say. If Muslims say they do something because it is in the Qur’an, we must take their word for it and take their sincerity seriously,’ says Thomas Hoffmann. …
Under the administration of President Barack Obama, the Treasury Department stopped blacklisting domestic charities that collect funds for terrorist organizations, Eli Lake of Bloomberg View reported on Thursday.
Lake explained that targeting charities that front for terrorist organizations was a “key tool” of the Bush administration’s war on terrorism after 9/11. During the Bush presidency, the Treasury targeted eight such charities located in the United States, including “al-Qaeda fronts such as the U.S. branch of the al-Haramain Foundation and the Benevolence International Foundation. In this period, the U.S. government also blacklisted groups that raised money for the Palestinian terror group Hamas, including the Holy Land Foundation, and for the Lebanese militia and political party Hezbollah, like the Good Will Charitable Organization.”
In contrast, the only charity to be designated under the Obama administration was the Tamil Foundation, which funded the Sri Lankan terrorist organization the Tamil Tigers. The group was blacklisted in February 2009, a month after Obama’s inauguration.
JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lashed out at Iran Sunday for staging a Holocaust-themed cartoon contest that mocked the Nazi genocide of 6 million Jews during World War II and said the Islamic Republic was busy planning for another one.
Iran has long backed armed groups committed to Israel’s destruction and its leaders have called for it to be wiped off the map. Israel fears that Iran’s nuclear program is designed to threaten its very existence. But Netanyahu said it was more than Iran’s belligerent policies that Israel opposed, but its values.

The decision to bar Hizb ut-Tahrir from undermining democracy in state-owned premises came just days after the Danish government tightened the screws in its public information law in a bid to cripple extremist associations and groups promoting violent radicalism.

Dozens of people in Bangladesh’s Sirajganj district have been infected with anthrax, according to district health officials. The Daily Star reports the affected individuals from Jamtoli village in Kamarkhand upazila and Koijuri village in Shahjadpur upazila contracted the serious bacterial disease after coming in contact with the meat of anthrax-infected animals.
Health personnel have been dispatched to the area and the patients are being treated.
Prof Mahmudur Rahman, director of the Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research (IEDCR), said the disease was a “regular phenomenon” in Sirajganj and Meherpur. “There is nothing to panic. The affected ones are being treated,” he said.
Bangladesh last experienced a anthrax outbreak in April to August 2011.
Anthrax is a bacterial pathogen in livestock and wild animals. Some of the more common herbivores are cattle, sheep,goats, horses, camels and deers. Anthrax is a very serious disease of livestock because it can potentially cause the rapid loss of a large number of animals in a very short time. Affected animals are often found dead with no illness detected.
(This may or may not be on topic for this site. But it does explain why I always ask people in health food stores why they don’t deeply discount antibiotic-free meat. Rising anthrax should mean at least 20% off the sticker price and if its hormone free, double that)
(There are as many Buddhists+Hindus, and more Christians in the world than Muslims. If we assume that “insanity” is equally distributed across the world, then why is it only Muslims cut people’s heads off and celebrate the act?)
The nanny who decapitated a girl, four, and paraded her severed head in the streets of Moscow will never face trial, say sources close to the criminal investigation.

The Israelis seem to be the only ones left on Earth capable or wiling to mock a clear and obvious evil enemy. Perhaps because they know better than most the cost of not doing so.
Which is a total loss of morale, and the desire to detente. Evil must be destroyed. Good propaganda is important to motivation. QED.
Thousands of Christians in German refugee shelters are being persecuted by Muslims, sometimes even by their security guards, according to a new report, which asserts that in most cases German authorities have done nothing to protect the victims.
The study alleges that German authorities and police have deliberately downplayed and even covered up the “taboo issue” of Muslim attacks on Christian refugees, apparently to avoid fueling anti-immigration sentiments.
The report, “Religiously Motivated Attacks on Christian Refugees in Germany” (Religiös motivierte Übergriffe gegen christliche Flüchtlinge in Deutschland), was produced by the German branch of Open Doors, a non-governmental organization supporting persecuted Christians, worldwide.
The study — which confirms a Gatestone Institute analysis about Muslim-Christian violence in German refugee shelters — documents more than 300 incidents in which Christian refugees in Germany have been physically and sexually assaulted, and even threatened with death, because of their faith.
