1. 30 killed in school attack in northeast Nigeria    

     POTISKUM, Nigeria (AP) — Islamic militants attacked a boarding school before dawn Saturday, dousing a dormitory in fuel and lighting it ablaze as students slept, survivors said. At least 30 people were killed in the deadliest attack yet on schools in Nigeria’s embattled northeast.

Authorities blamed the violence on Boko Haram, a radical group whose name means “Western education is sacrilege.” The militants have been behind a series of recent attacks on schools in the region, including one in which gunmen opened fire on children taking exams in a classroom. […] “They burned the children alive,” he said, the horror showing in his wide eyes.

3. Morsi ouster in Egypt ‘invalid’: Qaradawi fatwa

4. Our Future? Street Preacher In London Arrested For Listing Homosexuality As Sin

“He was speaking from a passage from Thessalonians which mentions ‘sexual immorality’ and listed homosexuality alongside ‘fornication’ as examples what he believed went against ‘God’s law.’ A woman out shopping called the police to complain that she was offended, prompting two officers to be dispatched to arrest him.”

(What I find interesting about this is he was not calling for any harm to come to anyone, or that people should in any way do anything to gay people. He was pointing out that to religious Christians, homosexuality is a ‘sin’ which is a highly proprietary thing to religion. It is as if I made up a word, wibble, and said that ‘according to my instruction book wearing blue panties is a wibble and that is a bad thing’. Meanwhile muslim preachers continue to say that the earthly punishment for homosexuality should be death in the here and now and remain unmolested by the law.)

5. ASIA/SYRIA – Rape and atrocities on a young Christian in Qusair

15 year old Mariam’s story – sent to Fides thanks to the report of two Catholic priests – is a sign of the brutality of the conflict and the extreme vulnerability of religious minorities. Mariam’s family was in town when militants linked to the jihadist group “Jabhat al-Nusra” conquered and occupied it.
While her family was able to escape, Mariam was taken and forced into an Islamic marriage.
Fides sources point out that, through social networks, the fatwa was widespread in Syria produced by Yasir al-Ajlawni – A Salafi sheikh of Jordanian origin, resident in Damascus – who declared lawful, for opponents of the regime of Bashar al-Assad, rape committed against “any non-Sunni Syrian woman.” According to the fatwa to capture and rape Alawi or Christian women is not contrary to the precepts of Islam.
The commander of the battalion “Jabhat al-Nusra” in Qusair took Mariam, married and raped her. Then he repudiated her. The next day the young woman was forced to marry another Islamic militant. He also raped her and then repudiated her. The same trend was repeated for 15 days,

  1. #4 If the truth sets you free, why would Communists directing the MistressTreaty upon Socialists worry about targeting Islam? Their population is already cowed and submissive. The Ethnic/Race/Skin Color/Religion was used by the Nazis to conquer a country and identify those who were intelligent, those homes with fathers, books, crafts and dining tables. The evidence of humanity.

    Street preacher wins compensation after Cumbria police wrongful arrest-A Christian street preacher wrongly arrested has accepted a £7,000 compensation pay-out from Cumbria police.

  3. #4 I dislike street preachers. Nothing is more irritating and distracting than a street preacher on a college campus when it gets hot, there is no air conditioning and you are taking a test in a STEM subject.

    Still for however much I dislike street preachers, they can’t speak out against homosexuality? Really? I guess the PC crowd does not realize or refuses to realize how well modern science comports with the Bible.
