1. Another muslim caught trying to blow up buildings and kill people for allah. This time in Toronto Canada.
(News reports struck out any reference to Islam although it does allow someone to say, ‘jihadi, Al-Qaeda and ISIS in the report)
2. Prime Minister Stephen Harper and leader of the third party in Canada fence over Islam and Canadian values
Officials in Cairo nonplussed as Washington stalls shipment of military aid for fight against Islamic State; Sissi present list of demands to Hamas for thaw
There is one thing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu can take comfort in regarding his relations with the US administration — he is not the only Middle Eastern leader struggling to understand American President Barack Obama. Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi has also been at a loss in recent weeks amid the administration’s almost surreal conduct towards Cairo.
(One of the great questions that face the human race is, ‘when does an event represent policy as opposed to an isolate incident’. I think by now it should be obvious how the US administration thinks and what they are trying to achieve)
The Archdiocese of San Francisco is under attack from the San Francisco Board of Supervisors for insisting that Catholic schools teach Catholic doctrine.
It seems the Board of Supervisors is upset over a morality clause that includes language against homosexuality, same-sex marriage and contraceptives. They unanimously passed a resolution rebuking the Catholic Church and demanding the archbishop ignore Catholic doctrine and respect the rights of teachers and students.
Supervisor Mark Farrell, who sponsored the anti-Catholic resolution, said the archbishop’s policies conflict with the values of San Francisco.
5. This is interesting
(The question I find interesting about this is, how long will that video remain on Youtube. The answer to which will be highly revealing as to the state of the world)
DUBAI: A Bahraini high school student and two teachers have been charged with “insulting Islam” after the boy sang verses from the Quran accompanied by musical instruments, the official BNA news agency reported Wednesday.
Islam allows intonation of Quranic verses, and recordings of chanting are frequently heard in marketplaces or on the radio and television, but singing them to musical accompaniment is prohibited.
Australian jihadist Jake Bilardi, who apparently died in a suicide attack in Iraq, released an online manifesto describing his radicalisation process and how he planned to carry out deadly attacks in Melbourne, and, ultimately, his decision to volunteer for martyrdom in Iraq.
[…] The impression is backed up by an interview he did with a BBC reporter, in which Bilardi said after his arrival in Iraq: “I came here chasing death, I might as well kill as many kuffar [infidels] as I can.” […] “Fearing possible attempts by the increasingly-intrusive authorities in Australia to prevent my departure I began drawing up a Plan B. This plan involved launching a string of bombings across Melbourne, targeting foreign consulates and political/military targets as well as grenade and knife attacks on shopping centres and cafes and culminating with myself detonating a belt of explosives amongst the kuffar,” he wrote. The ABC is reporting that Bilardi’s family discovered a number of improvised explosive devices at their home following his departure for the Middle East. The family reportedly alerted authorities, who began tracking Bilardi’s movements overseas.
(this article speaks to a suspicion this author has that government lies about the nature of islam actually fuels the conversion to violent actions on behalf of islam more than telling the truth about it may do through the alleged offense it carries.)
