Ankara has urged Washington to unconditionally support the expansion of its battle against the terror threat, in particular Kurdish militias, warning that those hindering Turkey’s right to self-defense will be considered terrorists and acted upon accordingly.

“The only thing we expect from our US ally is to support Turkey with no ifs or buts,” Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu told a news conference after a five-hour security meeting with cabinet and state officials.

4. Vatican invites head of al-Azhar to meet with pope to restart dialogue

(The Pope may need to be reminded of what happened last time he tried the big interfaith con at the Rose Garden at the Vatican. Anyone not knowing about it can see it here, and get analysis here.)

VATICAN CITY – The Vatican’s interreligious council invited the head of a leading Muslim institution to meet with Pope Francis as part of an effort to restart dialogue.

Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, president of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, invited Ahmad el-Tayeb, the grand imam of al-Azhar University, to come to the Vatican and meet with the pope.

The invitation came in a letter that was delivered by Bishop Miguel Ayuso Guixot, council secretary, and given to the imam’s representative during a meeting in Cairo Feb. 16.

Talks between the Vatican and al-Azhar were suspended by the Muslim university in 2011.

A decades-old dialogue between al-Azhar and the Vatican started to fray in 2006, after now-retired Pope Benedict XVI gave a speech in Regensburg, Germany. Al-Azhar officials and millions of Muslims said the speech linked Islam to violence.

5. Lebanese Minister Resigns Over Hezbollah Domination

Lebanese Justice Minister Ashraf Rifi resigned from the Cabinet Sunday, saying the militant Hezbollah group dominates the government and is harming Beirut’s relations with Arab countries.

The resignation of Rifi, a longtime critic of the Shiite Hezbollah, comes two days after Saudi Arabia halted deals worth $4 billion aimed at equipping and supporting Lebanese security forces. The move came after Lebanon failed to back the Sunni kingdom in its spat with Shiite powerhouse Iran, the leading backer of Hezbollah.

The six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council backed the Saudi decision, raising concerns it could have repercussions for thousands of Lebanese living in Gulf countries.

Lebanon has a sectarian divide that reflects the wider regional split between Saudi Arabia and Iran, and has long been a battlefield for the region’s proxy wars.

6. Greece: Macedonia Has Closed Its Borders to Afghan Migrants

Macedonia closed its border to Afghan migrants early Sunday, Greek police said, slowing the admission of refugees to a trickle and leaving a growing bottleneck of people stuck at their shared border.

A Macedonian police spokeswoman denied there was any new prohibition regarding Afghans, blaming the problem on Serbia, the next nation along the Balkans migration route into Western Europe.

By early afternoon, about 1,000 migrants were waiting at the Greek border camp in Idomeni — and at a gas station only 17 kilometers (11 miles) away, 80 buses with 4,000 more migrants were waiting to take them to the border.

Greek police said Macedonia refused to let Afghans through because Serbia made the same decision and officials feared the migrants would get stuck in Macedonia.

“The authorities of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia informed us that, beginning at dawn Sunday, they no longer accept Afghan refugees because the same problem exists at their border with Serbia,” Petros Tanos, spokesman for Greek police’s Central Macedonia division, told The Associated Press.

10. Exclusive: Obama Refuses to Hit ISIS’s Libyan Capital

(Obama must be trying to defeat them by confusing them till surrender)

The terror group is gaining ground in Libya. But the Obama administration has said no to a Pentagon plan to go after ISIS there.

Despite the growing threat from the self-proclaimed Islamic State in Libya, the Obama administration has turned down a U.S. military plan for an assault on ISIS’s regional hub there, three defense officials told The Daily Beast.

In recent weeks, the U.S. military—led by its Africa and Special Operations Commands—have pushed for more airstrikes and the deployment of elite troops, particularly in the city of Sirte. The hometown of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, the city is now under ISIS control and serving as a regional epicenter for the terror group.

The airstrikes would target ISIS resources while a small band of Special Operations Forces would train Libyans to eventually be members of a national army, the officials said.

“Leading Hindu priest decapitated in Bangladesh,” AFP, February 21, 2016:

A top Hindu priest was decapitated by attackers in northern Bangladesh Sunday and two worshippers wounded, police said, in the latest assault targeting minorities in the Muslim-majority nation.

Two assailants armed with pistols and cleavers attacked Jogeswar Roy, 45, the head priest of Sri Sri Sant Gourio Math, at his home in the temple on Sunday morning, officials said.

“The priest was preparing for morning prayers when they pounced on him and slit his head from the body at the verandah of his home inside the temple,” said Shafiqul Islam, a government administrator in the sub-district Debiganj where the temple is located.

12. Canada: Trudeau insists: “Islam is not incompatible with Western secular democracy”

justin-trudeau-7-CIJnews.tile00_00_00_00.Still002

 

 

In two separate interviews to CBC during recent months, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau firmly maintained that Islam is compatible with Western open and secular democracy:

(November 24, 2015): “Canadians are quick to point out that ISIS is wrong, that Islam is not incompatible with the Western secular democracy, a free place like Canada.”

(January 31, 2016): “But on the other hand, we need to make sure that we’re working with communities like the Muslim community for example to demonstrate that Islam is not incompatible with free and open Western societies.”

Reviving the Islamic Spirit convention exemplifies “our shared beliefs”

In a video message to the annual Reviving the Islamic Spirit convention held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (December 25-27, 2015) in Toronto, Trudeau said:

The Reviving the Islamic Spirit [RIS] convention… is also about celebrating our shared beliefs in justice, fairness, equality of opportunity and acceptance. The work you do in communities across the country is what builds the and strengthens our multicultural fabric.”

  1. 12. Canada: Trudeau insists: “Islam is not incompatible with Western secular democracy”

    He’s so darn sure of himself, isn’t he? I know one thing that I’m sure of. I’m sure that Justin Trudeau has never as much as opened a copy of an English translation of the Quran, or he would know that what he is saying is ridiculous. What kind of a blithering idiot would think that our Canadian culture and 7th century Bedouin culture are in any way compatible? Islam is 7th century Bedouin culture, preserved for all eternity in the pages of the Holy Quran, and it’s definitely not compatible with us.

    We don’t believe in slavery, we don’t believe that women are worth half as much as men or that it’s OK to beat them, we don’t believe in cutting off peoples’ hands and feet, we don’t believe in threatening people with death if they shun our religion or killing them if they quit, we don’t believe that Arab men of the bani Quraysh are the pinnacle of creation, and we don’t believe in bonking little girls. We Canadians, in fact, are about as far from 7th century Bedouins as you can get, and proud of it!

    Dear Justin, please educate yourself and then try applying some critical thinking to the situation instead of acting as an entirely political animal. Defend Canada, not just the left wing. You’re acting exactly like that failure down south. Stop, before you screw things up beyond repair, the way he has…

    • That is one possibility. The other is that he does know and is lying to protect islam. Personally I think Trudeau is as much a muslim as Obama is. Which means he either is one, or his sympathies lie that way to the extent that he will carry water for them at the expense of all else, and all of us.

      • He sure is awfully enthusiastic about bringing in those 50-thousand-plus “Syrian refugees”, isn’t he? It certainly looks like he’s taking his orders directly from Mr. al-Baghdadi himself, or Mr. Erdogan. He seems completely unconcerned about terrorism or the security of Canadians.

      • I believe it. This is the next big thing.

        Especially after listening to Milo describe the university scene and watching the campus brownshirts, I predict many early conversions among the privileged progressives. They’ll have run up the victim-scale soon. Where is there to go next?

        Say the magic words, and it’s such an easy slide home. These lazy-boys – BHO, JT – have always gotten the smooth side, they know just where to go. Home in on the money, the power.

        • That is what George III thought, so did various other outfits that tried to take us. Things are going to change and I refuse to accept the idea that the US and freedom are things of the past. Too many people have died to start and preserve our nation, and there are enough people like them alive to save the nation and freedom.

        • I agree with you. I’ve long predicted that our left-wing-media-brainwashed young people will start converting to Islam as a form of expressing their teenage rebellion. I’ve always predicted that converting to Islam is going to be the new vegetarianism for annoying, know-it-all self-righteous angry ungrateful Western teenagers. What better way to get all the attention and really get back at your parents for bringing you into this shitty, polluted, racist world…?

          “Please don’t touch me, father. I’m going to pray and you’re unclean.”, will be the new, “Please don’t make me eat dead animals…”. And sitting at the breakfast table in a full burka? What better way to really fuck up your parents? It’s all about making daddy cry, after all, isn’t it…? Well, he’ll be crying if you convert to Islam, all right…
