FRENCH COURT ANNULS MUSLIM MARRIAGE DUE TO HUSBAND'S CLAIM THAT WIFE WAS NOT A VIRGIN

A French Court has annulled a muslim marriage based upon the husband's claim that the wife was not a virgin. A further descent into full-fledged chaos i.e. Eurabia.

Excerpts from (
Reuters) - "France plunged into a heated debate about its marriage laws on Friday after learning that a court had annulled the union of two Muslims because the husband said the wife was not the virgin she had claimed to be."

"The hoodwinked husband's lawyer responded just as forcibly that civil marriage was a legal contract. The court invalidated this one because the wife had lied about what French law calls an "essential quality" of a contracting party, he said.

"Concerns about traditional Muslim views creeping into secular French law hung

ISLAM'S GROWTH IS THE RESULT OF RELATIVISM IN THE WEST

If I could shout this from the mountain tops --I would. Relativism is so pervasive in the West--it has even penetrated good and holy people who have become uncertain and even afraid to assert the existence of truth and condemn lies and false religions. Truth is not subjective--nor is it up to man to decide what is true and what is false. Truth exists outside of man and despite man's assent or acquiescence to it.

The dissolution and rejection of absolute truth is precisely due to the disunity of Christianity and the creation of personal religion. Over the last 500+ years we have accepted the notion that everyone is free to create their own version of Christ, Christianity and ultimately their own truth. As a result we now as a culture, lack standing to condemn those who personally and sincerely believe they possess the fullness of truth but in reality lack Christ who is truth. To condemn personal religion and thereby false religion would amount to a condemnation of what the West itself has become.

Recent Catholic convert, Magdi Allam, recently asserted that it is relativism that has caused the growth of Islam in the West. Excerpts from (
CNA).- "Magdi Allam, warned this week that Islam is growing as a result of the ideology of relativism that pervades the West and claims that there are many truths instead of one unique Truth.

In an article published by the magazine Mundo Cristiano and quoted by Analisis Digital, Allam

DUTCH POLICE ENCOURAGED TO READ THE KORAN

Dhimmification has officially begun. Be good little police officers and read the Koran --so you understand the plight of the zealous and angry Muslim man. Imagine the Bible being similarly recommended by the government.

From the
dailytelegraph: "Police in Amsterdam will get half the purchase price back if they buy the Koran to deepen their knowledge of Islam, a spokesman said today.

"A new translation had just appeared in Dutch and officers on the beat were being encouraged to read this and a biography of the Prophet Mohammed, Ebe van der Land said.

"These two books will make for a better understanding and knowledge of the Koran and the life of the prophet," Mr van der Land said.

"Police bosses have decided that staff who buy these books will be refunded half the price."

CHURCH OF ENGLAND BISHOP CONDEMNED BY HIS OWN FOR ADVOCATING THE CONVERSION OF MUSLIMS TO CHRISTIANITY

The Bishop of Rochester, the Rt Rev Michael Nazir-Ali, who happens to be Britain's only Asian archbishop, appears to be the lone voice in the Church of England who advocates the conversion of Muslims. Nazir-Ali, accused the Church of failing in its duty to "welcome people of other faiths" ahead of a motion at July's General Synod in York. His statements were heartily condemned as intolerant and arcane.

From the
Telegraph: "The Rt Rev Stephen Lowe, the former Bishop of Hulme and the newly appointed Bishop of Urban Life and Faith, said: "Both the Bishop of Rochester's reported comments and the synod private members' motion show no sensitivity to the need for good inter-faith relations. Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus and Sikhs are learning to respect one another's paths to God and to live in harmony. This demand for the evangelisation of people of other faiths contributes nothing to our communities."

A Church of England spokesman added:
"We have a mission-focused Christian presence in every community, including those where there are a large number of Muslims. That engagement is based on the provisions of Article 9 of the European Convention on Human Read More...

FORMER JORDANIAN MINISTER: ISLAM WILL SEIZE ROME & AMERICA WILL COME TO AN END


EXCERPTS FROM
CNA- "A former Jordanian minister has seized upon commentary about the decline of Western power, saying on Arabic-language television that Islam will conquer Rome. He went on to say that Spain is an Islamic land that should be retaken and that America has begun to realize its “end is near.”

"The remarks by former Jordanian Minister of Religious Endowment Ali Al-Faqir were broadcast on Al-Aqsa TV on May 2.

"According to a transcript prepared by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), Al-Faqir said Palestine from the Jordan to the Mediterranean is an Islamic land. “Spain – Andalusia – is also the land of Islam,” he said.

“Islamic lands that were occupied by the enemies will once again become Islamic. Furthermore, we will reach beyond these countries, which are lost at one point. We proclaim that we will conquer Rome, like Constantinople was conquered once, and as it will be conquered again.

GERMANY IN THE GRIPS OF CULTURAL SUICIDE


The face of Europe is changing one nation at a time. Germany has been in the news lately: Islamist from Germany declares 'holy war' ; German Police Conduct Nationwide Raids on Suspected Islamists; Germany: Police search homes for illegal 'jihadist' material

From FOCUS: In 2004 a prominent Muslim scholar, Bassam Tibi, predicted a future for Germany that many decried as provocative nonsense at the time:

"In ten years, Tibi said, Germany will be the scene of large running battles between police and gangs of marginalized Muslim youth, bringing cities like Berlin, Cologne and Frankfurt to the brink of chaos. This will be the inevitable result, according to him, of a trend that is already visible. Muslims are not interested in integration. They are, in fact, obligated not to integrate by the radical Islamic ideology dominant in their communities, and live increasingly segregated in parallel societies. The main difference between 2004 and 2014, Tibi believed, would be that the highly marginalized Muslim population would have more than doubled to 10 million, sharia would have been gradually introduced in Germany and the Islam preached there would be even more radical and resemble Nazi totalitarianism."

According to a recent study of young Muslim attitudes by the German interior ministry-- 44 percent of German Read More...

ST CLARE, THE EUCHARIST AND THE FLEEING OF THE MUSLIMS

"Amen, Amen, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you do not have life within you" Jesus

Years ago a sweet lady from my church offered me a very large and beautiful statue of St Clare of Assisi after I named my daughter Clare. I gladly accepted not knowing much about St Clare at the time except that she had bravely driven vicious soldiers from her convent while carrying Jesus in the Eucharist. It wasn't until I recently read Frank M. Rega's book St Francis and the Conversion of the Muslims that I realized that the Saracen soldiers that St Clare drove off-- were actually Muslims.

Clare was a beautiful Italian noblewoman who founded an order of nuns called the "Poor Clares." She was converted upon hearing St. Francis of Assisi preach. Thereafter, she developed a great desire to live a poor humble life for Jesus. She ran away from home, and in a little chapel outside Assisi, gave herself to God. St. Francis cut off her hair and gave her a rough brown habit to wear tied with a plain cord around her waist.

In the year 1240, St Clare saved her sisters and her convent from plundering hordes of Saracen mercenaries through the miracle of the Eucharist. As the Saracens were placing ladders

MUSLIM SEX OFFENDERS IN THE U.K. MAY BE EXEMPT FROM PRISON REHABILITATION PROGRAMS

Muslim sex offenders may be able to opt out of prison treatment programs in the U.K. because they claim it is against their religion.

From
Thisislondon: "Rapists, paedophiles and other dangerous sex attackers are expected to discuss their crimes with others during jail sessions designed to stop them reoffending."

"Now the Prison Service's Muslim advisor, Ahtsham Ali, has said there is a "legitimate Islamic position" that criminals should not discuss their crimes with other people.

"An "urgent review" has been ordered, and Muslims could be allowed to opt out of this part of the treatment - despite completing a full programme often being a condition of release.

"The move has already sparked protests. Shadow Justice Secretary, Nick Herbert said: "It is one thing to make a dispensation for a prisoner's faith when it comes to prayer and diet, but if a prisoner is unwilling to take part in rehabilitation they should be treated no differently to others – which may mean spending longer in custody. "There can be no religious discrimination when it comes to deciding the appropriate and safe time to release a prisoner."

"Some 1,000 sex offenders underwent the treatment programme last year, in 26 prisons. Places are

THE ASSAULT ON TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE--BY MUSLIMS IN EUROPE

Traditional marriage, which is essential for the survival of Western Civilization, is under assault not only from the secular pro-homosexual left but also from Islam. Here is a report on the spread of polygamy throughout Europe via Islam. Of course the multiculturalists tell us that all cultures and religions are equal--and none is superior to any other. We mustn't force our repressive and antiquated Christian-based ideas of marriage and family on immigrants. I guess many in Europe are willing to gamble on this faulty relativistic premise-- and even provide public assistance to support the polygamists.

Rome, 2 April
(AKI) - Polygamous marriages are illegal in Italy yet are reportedly on the rise. While few Muslim immigrants or Italian converts to Islam admit such unions, Muslim scholars put the number nationwide at 15,000-20,000, La Repubblica daily reports.

"There is no doubt that the phenomenon exists, and that the number of polygamous unions growing as the number of Muslim immigrants to Italy increases," the paper said, adding that there are also cases of polygamous Italian converts to Islam.

No official statistics have been gathered on polygamous marriages in Italy, and estimates vary wildly from hundreds to tens of thousands, according to the paper.

The Catholic charity Caritas estimates there are just over 1.2 million Muslim immigrants in Italy, approximately one-third of a total of over 3.6 million immigrants.

The Italian state does not issue family welfare cheques to more than one wife per husband, unlike in Britain, where

THE POPE, ISLAM, AND CATHOLIC PROPHECY FOR OUR TIMES

"But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is ...Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at evening, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch." Mark 13: 32-37

Pope Benedict has proven over the course of his brief pontificate that he does not shy away from the controversial for the sake of a false wordly peace. Prior to the recent baptism of Magdi Allam-- Osama bin Laden claimed in an audio recording that Islam will chastise the Pope and the European people for the publication of cartoons of Mohammed. I am certain that the recent baptism of Allam has solidified the position of Pope Benedict and the Church at the top of al qaeda's hit list.

As to bin Laden's threat against Europe-- so much of Western Europe is apathetic to the silent

ST FRANCIS AND THE CONVERSION OF THE MUSLIMS


I recently finished an amazing book called St Francis of Assisi and the Conversion of the Muslims by Frank M. Rega published by TAN. This book makes clear that St Francis made it his priority to convert the Muslims. Unfortunately St Francis' image has been distorted by liberal revisionist writers over the years who have created a false notion of him as a passive "PETA" pantheists who just happened to be Catholic. This book will tweak this modern notion of St Francis by revealing the truth of who he really was--an inspiring, courageous, Catholic who loved the truth and sought to boldly bring Jesus to everyone-- even those who were blinded by heresy.

Rega has thoroughly researched Francis and stands on firm ground in his telling of the story of Francis and his attempt to convert the Sultan. The famous meeting begins when Francis accompanies the crusaders to Damietta, Egypt with the goal of having a private audience with Sultan al-Malik al-Kamil who was the Islamic ruler of Egypt.

Prior to the battle of Damietta, Francis received a prophetic vision that the crusaders would lose the battle. He hesitatingly revealed his vision which was dismissed. The battle went forward, and the crusaders lost.


The crusaders losses were many. As one chronicler wrote--John the Baptist gained many companions that day due to the great many beheadings.
"This horror befell about fifty horsemen, of the Knights Templar, thirty of the Germans, and over twenty Hospitallers."

Remarkably it was the loss at Damietta that gave St Francis the opportunity to finally meet the Sultan face to face in an attempt to convert him to the Christian faith.

St Francis sought permission to enter the camp of the Sultan from the Papal Legate who was hesitant to grant permission since al Kamil had reportedly stated that
"anyone who brought him the head of a Christian should be awarded with Byzantine gold pieces". Eventually when confronted with the insistence and persistence of St Francis, the Papal legate allowed Francis and one companion, Brother Illuminato, to go into the Muslim camp.

Early documents all agree that upon entering the camp

POPE TO BAPTIZE PROMINENT EX-MUSLIM MAGDI ALLAM AT EASTER VIGIL

This is truly a cause for celebration and it is fitting that it occur on the day of our Lord's resurrection. Italy's most prominent Muslim is to be baptized by Pope Benedict at the Easter Vigil.

As previously reported
here Magdi Allam was a non-practicing Muslim who has become a staunch opponent of the Islamization of Europe. He is an Egyptian born columnist and vice-director of Corriere della Sera, Italy’s leading daily newspaper. He has become Italy’s most prominent critic of Islam and his views have become highly regarded in more conservative Catholic circles.

Allam's mother sent him to a Catholic boarding school in Egypt, where he began studying Western culture and civilization. He later immigated to Italy.

He has supported a ban against building new mosques in Italy and has sought to expose underground relationships between Italian mosques and international terrorist groups. His writings and opinions have led to numerous death threats and have necessitated him to be under constant guard.

Allam on the Islamization of Europe: "Europe is already a bastion of Islamic extremism. Just look at the attack on Mike's Place in Tel Aviv, which was carried out by British suicide bombers drafted by Hamas; the massacre by Islamists in Madrid and in London; the slitting of director Theo Van Gogh's throat in Amsterdam; and the dozens of Islamic terror attacks that were prevented in Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium and Holland."

"This bastion exists thanks to a widespread network of mosques, Koran schools, financial bodies and charitable institutions linked to the Muslim Brotherhood; Moroccan, Tunisian and Algerian

AUSTRIAN BISHOP CONDEMNS MINARETS AS A PROVOCATION AND OXFORD EXPERIENCES THE MUSLIM CALL TO PRAYER

When will the West wake up to the fact that multiculturalism does not work? There is no two-way street with Islam-- we can strive to make Muslims feel welcome and accepted but according to the tenets of their own religion Western Culture must go and Islam must replace it. As we cogitate the value of multiculturalism Western civilization is slipping away one city at a time.

From
Earthtimes: Vienna - "A high-ranking representative of Austria's Catholic Church for the first time openly voiced reservations against the construction of minarets.

VATICAN IN SECRET TALKS TO BUILD CATHOLIC CHURCHES IN SAUDI ARABIA

The Vatican has been holding secret talks with Saudi Arabian authorities to build Catholic churches in Muhammad's homeland. According to one of Pope Benedict's most senior Middle East representatives. Archbishop Paul-Mounged El-Hashem the Papal Nuncio to Qatar, Kuwait, the UAE, Yemen and Bahrain said: "Discussions are under way to allow the construction of churches in the kingdom. We cannot forecast the outcome."

The Vatican and Saudi Arabia do not have diplomatic relations. However, Archbishop El-Hashem said that moves towards diplomatic ties began after an unprecedented visit to the Vatican last November by King Abdullah. This would involve negotiations for the “authorisation of the building of Catholic churches” in Saudi Arabia, he said.

"But, speaking to the news agency Agence France-Presse, the Lebanese prelate, the Pope's envoy in the Gulf, added: "There are around three or four million Christians in Saudi Arabia, and we hope they will have churches."

At the Vatican, the Pope's spokesman, Father Federico Lombardi, said: "If we manage to obtain authorisation for the construction of the first church, it will be an outcome of historic dimensions."

TOP VATICAN OFFICIAL FOR MUSLIM RELATIONS CALLS ROWAN WILLIAMS NAIVE ON SHARIA LAW


ROME (Reuters) - The Vatican's top man for relations with Islam on Tuesday criticized the Archbishop of Canterbury as mistaken and "naive" for suggesting that some aspects of Sharia law in Britain were unavoidable.

Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, in a wide-ranging discussion with reporters about Christian-Muslim relations, also said he was confident that a new, permanent body between the Vatican and Muslims would help defuse misunderstandings in the future.

"I think it was a mistake, a mistake because, above all, one has to ask what type of Sharia. And then, it was a bit naive," Tauran said in answer to a question at a breakfast meeting.

"One can understand his good intentions but it seems to me he did not take into consideration either them (the Muslims), the English juridical system, or the

MUSLIM UNIVERSITY STUDENTS DEMAND ACCOMMODATIONS FOR THEIR RELIGION



More and more Muslim students are demanding accommodations for their religion on university campuses. If Catholic students demanded similar accommodations they would be laughed off campus. But for some reason the atheistic campus elite are oftentimes willing to give in to the religion of Islam. Why oh why?

Harvard Sets Women-Only Hours for Gym, Complying With Muslim Students' Request. Since Jan. 28, the Quadrangle Recreational Athletic Center has been open only to women from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Mondays.

ITALY: SOME MUSLIM WOMEN LIVING IN CHAINS

The president of the Association of Moroccan Women in Italy has stated that some Muslim women are literally being kept in chains in their homes.

Souad Sbai stated. "In northern Italy, there are women that live chained at home, from the kitchen to the bathroom, without being able to open the door".

Excerpts from
ADNKRONOS: "In the North,[of Italy] there are 4 and 5 year old girls that wear the [Islamic] veil in the summer, and in the winter. This is the culture of male chauvinists, of fundamentalists - and nobody is shocked," said Sbai.

"Sbai also claims that Egypt's Islamist Muslim Brotherhood organistion is slowly 'infiltrating' Italian politics.

"Sbai also pointed the finger at many "imams that are ignorant, that are butchers, and have harmed the community."

LIBERALS CRY RACISM TO SILENCE DEMOGRAPHIC WINTER DOCUMENTARY

An article entitled The 'Right' Babies' by Kathryn Joyce condemns the documentary Demographic Winter and attempts to silence all demographic truth tellers by labeling them racists and invoking the need for ever-more multiculturalism.

Joyce ascribes "devious" and conspiratorial motives to the documentary's producers and claims they are only trying to re-Christianize the Western world. Most telling of all, Joyce remains silent in the face of statistics and hard evidence presented in the film. Thus the only recourse liberal demographic-deniers have is to silence the truth-tellers by condemning them as racist scare-mongers.

Liberals seem to have no problem however engaging in scare-mongering with respect to the psuedo-science of global warming. They care more for the planet and the availability of their favorite contraception and means of abortion than they do for the survival of mankind.

Further, the liberal pursuit of utopian multi-cultural harmony only works in textbooks and in their own

DUTCH CATHOLICS RENAME LENT "RAMADAN" TO APPEAL TO MUSLIMS

This is a liberal's version of evangelization--to change the Church to conform to the world. Diabolical concepts such as relativism and religious indifferentism are proof that the smoke of Satan has indeed entered the sanctuaries of the Church. Liberal Catholicism has all but destroyed the Church in an attempt to Protestantize it--which is a pew-emptying failure. Now they hope to convert the Muslims by Islamizing Catholicism. From the Dutch bishop who advocated calling God "Allah", to the renaming of lent. What's next? Liberals may seek to rename the Bible "The Koran"-- after all, in their eyes it's all the word of God or should I say-- the word of Allah. The irony is that such relativism and "tolerance" lead only to one's own eventual obliteration and demise. Further, such weakness makes conversion from Islam to Christianity futile--since there is nothing to convert from or to.

From

THE FIRST MUSLIM-BORN HEAD OF STATE MAY BE IN AMERICA--NOT EUROPE

Great mystery surrounds Barack Hussein Obama's religious beliefs and upbringing. I do not know what is worse --that he may be a Muslim apostate or that he could turn out to be a professing Muslim. While the Islamization threat is much more apparent in Europe due to immigration and dismal birth rates, the average American feels much more insulated and seemingly has the luxury of ignoring the reality of the danger that Islam poses to the entire Western world (despite 9-11). So many long to believe that the problem lies with the radical elements in Islam rather than with the religion itself. This ignorance could make America just as vulnerable to Muslim domination as Europe.

From Mr Thomas Landon via Brussels Journal: "If I had been asked two months ago “Which Western country runs the greatest risk of electing a Muslim-born leader and how soon do you think this is going to happen?” I would have bet on the Netherlands somewhere in the next decade. Today, it looks as if the first Western country with a Muslim-born leader might very well be the United States next year, when President Barack Hussein Obama enters the Oval Office."

"Perhaps Mr. Obama strikes the Europeans as the “most European candidate” because he was born a Muslim. If America can have a Muslim-born leader, why not Europe, many Europeans will ask. They know that the latter is “unavoidable” (to use the archbishop of Canterbury’s words). In America, Mr. Obama’s Muslim family background (unlike Mr. Romney’s Mormonism) is a non-issue because he attends a Christian church. Nevertheless, being born from a Muslim father, raised by a Muslim stepfather, having been enrolled at Read More...

ANGLICAN ARCHBISHOP: SHARIA LAW INEVITABLE


This is where the loss of faith and apostasy has led the West-- to capitulation by so called Christians to the enemy of Jesus Christ. False charity, false ecumenism, and false Christianity bring about weak men who collude with Satan to accomplish the ruin of civilization and ultimately Christianity.

As a civilization we are reaping the fruit of the Reformation which was a rejection of authority and and an embrace of relativism and indifference to truth. Every man now lives by his own contrived truth--no
one religion possesses truth, and there is no unified voice to stand for truth and against the tyranny of secularism and Islam. Instead there are ineffective and self-deprecating leaders like Rowan Williams who embrace, celebrate and are even willing to adopt the beliefs of those that seek the destruction of their very nation and church (and ironically would delight in beheading Williams and any homosexual clergy). When the Bride of Christ is divorced and the "life" which Christ promised to those who consume His flesh is absent-- then Sharia law is an inevitability. And the stench of weakness, capitulation and appeasement will only incite further demands from Islam in its pursuit of domination. (Thanks to Roger in New Zealand)

From the
BBC: "The Archbishop of Canterbury says the adoption of certain aspects of Sharia law in the UK "seems unavoidable".

"Dr Rowan Williams told Radio 4's World at One that the UK has to "face up to the fact" that some of its citizens do not relate to the British legal system.

"Dr Williams argues that adopting parts of Islamic Sharia law would help maintain social cohesion."

Social cohesion? Rather than seek social cohesion and transform our beliefs and civilization to Islam we should seek the conversion of Islam to Christianity. Read More...

U.K. -- HAREMS TO RECEIVE WELFARE BENEFITS

Men with multiple wives in the U.K. will now be able to collect extra welfare benefits for their wives.

"Even though bigamy is a crime in Britain, the decision by ministers means that polygamous marriages can now be recognised formally by the state, so long as the weddings took place in countries where the arrangement is legal.

"The outcome will chiefly benefit Muslim men with more than one wife, as is permitted under Islamic law. Ministers estimate that up to a thousand polygamous partnerships exist in Britain, although they admit there is no exact record.

"The decision has been condemned by the Tories, who accused the Government of offering preferential treatment to a particular group, and of setting a precedent that would lead to demands for further changes in British law."

Like implementation of Sharia law?

THE LAUNCH OF A UNITED EUROPEAN PATRIOTIC PARTY BASED ON CHRISTIAN TRADITIONS TO FIGHT ISLAMIZATION


Some good news from the Eurabian front-- a few exceptionally astute politicians have identified the need to unify in order to defend their respective nations, to reclaim their Christian identity and to resist all that seeks the destruction of Western Civilization. Now if only the secular media would refrain from identifying all those who hold such ideas as "far right-wing". With God's mercy may the defenders of Europe prevail over those who seek its destruction.

EXCERPTS FROM
DEUTSCHE WELLE: "Leaders of right-wing nationalist parties from four EU member states have announced plans to create a European "patriotic" party that would protect the continent against immigration, "Islamization" and globalization.

"The heads of Austria's Freedom Party, France's Nationalist Front, the Bulgarian Attaca party and Belgium's Vlaams Belang on Friday, Jan. 25, told journalists in Vienna that they had agreed to set up a new party in order to defend Europe from numerous challenges that it faces today.

BECOMING A DHIMMI NATION--AUSTRIAN BIRTH RATE IN DEATH SPIRAL


As
Austria muzzles politicians who speak the truth about the growing Islamization of Europe, the recent statistics on the Austrian birth rate do not lie. With a birth rate of 1.3 births per woman in 2006, Austria was previously thought to be on the brink of the death spiral but officials are now reporting a continued decline in the birth rate for 2007.

There were 69,245 births in Austria during the first eleven months of 2007--which represents a 2.4 per cent drop from the prior year (or 1,674 fewer births).

Top that off with the fact that 38 percent of all births from December, 2006 through November, 2007 were to unwed mothers, up from 37.2 percent from the prior year.

By the way --Austrian politician Susanne Winter is now under guard due to a death threat against her by the "European Al Qaeda". It seems Islamization may be fine for the percentage of the populace who the State supports in a hedonistic, pill-popping, serial shack-up lifestyle--just don't talk about the price that will eventually be paid.

A CATHOLIC HERO DEFENDS THE FAITH AND THE CRUCIFIX

A hospital employee in Britain who also happens to be a devout Roman Catholic recently found himself literally defending the the faith and in particular the crucifix against Muslims who had covered Catholic items in a hospital prayer room. He may now face charges of a religiously motivated assault.

From Manchestereveningnews: A hospital porter was quizzed by police after a row over a crucifix being covered in a prayer room has denied allegations of assault.

Joseph Protano, 54, was interviewed on suspicion of religiously aggravated assault at the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital, Pendlebury.

Mr Protano, a devout Catholic from Salford, was released without charge but was suspended four days after the incident and has now been at home for two weeks.

The row centres round a prayer room available to staff and visitors of all faiths at the hospital.

AUSTRIAN POLITICIAN FACES JAIL TIME FOR ANTI-ISLAMIC SPEECH

An Austrian politician's comments about the prophet Mohammed and Islam may land her in jail.

Susanne Winter, a right-wing politician with the FPÖ party, stated that "in today's system" the Prophet Muhammad would be considered a "child molester". Winter who is running for a city council seat in the city of Graz, was apparently referring to Mohammed's marriage to a six-year-old child.

Winter stated that it is time for Islam to be "thrown back where it came from, behind the Mediterranean." She also stated, as have many others before her that Muhammad wrote the Koran in "epileptic fits."


EXCERPTS FROM
SPIEGEL: "In an interview with the daily Österreich published on Monday, Winter continued the onslaught saying that child abuse is "widespread" among Muslim men and that Graz is facing a "tsunami of Muslim immigration." In 20 or 30 years, she warned, half of Austria's population would be Muslim.

"Her comments have resulted in a storm of protest in Austria, with politicians and commentators of all stripes taking Winter and her party to task. Austrian prosecutors are...looking into the possibility of filing charges against the 50-year-old politician for incitement."

OPEN YOURSELF TO LIFE IN AN EFFORT TO SAVE WESTERN CIVILIZATION

Here is an incredible quote that sums up the struggle that Western Civilization faces if it is to survive. Once again, it is the Catholic Church that possesses the answers to the crisis of culture that we face. The Church is the only voice in the West that defends life and condemns artificial contraception. Anyone who fails to see the connection between contraception and the potentiality of Eurabia should examine their own participation in the culture of death--which inevitably blinds one to spiritual truths. The article is entitled "The Empty Manger" by John Zmirak. The entirety of this article is a must read--however for the sake of brevity I refer only to a portion of it. (H.T. to Brussels Journal):

"[T]he pansexual hedonists of the Netherlands are now in a panic over their nation’s Islamic future. Even the blasé Parisians have begun to wonder whether their nation’s bureaucratically atheist state is acid enough to dissolve the faith of burgeoning immigrants—before the Arabs outbreed, outvote, and expel the residual Frenchmen. The Germans who a generation ago worshiped their race as a pagan god now look on lackadaisically, and welcome the Turk into Europe. To read their children’s future, they may look to the fate of the Christians in Lebanon, or Kosovo —two other lands where the cradle has had its revenge.

"Any healthy creature or culture shows two signs of life: It reproduces itself, and it fights off

A MUSLIM CALL TO PRAYER IN OXFORD

One day the Muslim call to prayer will be a common occcurance in the West --it has already begun in America. A city in the midst of Detroit called Hamtramck was once a Polish Catholic Community that went through a similar battle years ago and lost. It is now referred to as Hamtramckstan where the elderly Polish Catholic residents--what is left of them--must hear the call to prayer.

From
dailymail: Muslim plans to broadcast a loudspeaker call to prayer from a city centre mosque have been attacked by local residents who say it would turn the area into a "Muslim ghetto".

Dozens of people packed out a council meeting to express their concerns over the plans for a two-minute long call to prayer to be issued three times a day, saying that it could drown out the traditional sound of church bells.

But a spokesman for the Central Mosque said that Muslim's also have the right to

CATHOLIC PROPHECY THROUGHOUT CENTURIES FORETELLS OF A MUSLIM INVASION INTO EUROPE IN END TIMES

Catholic prophecies about the last days have been consistent throughout the centuries. In fact the prophecies viewed on the whole are astonishingly consistent. A great many prophecies foretell the Muslim invasion of the European continent which is to occur due to the anarchy and godlessness in Europe.

I believe it is gravely important that we be aware of what has been foretold. So much of what we hear about Islam and its spread into Europe is political in nature. I am certain that a great many of you view this movement of Islam into Europe as more than simply a historical or a political event. But rather, recognize the spiritual significance of this occurrence in salvation history. The loss of faith and apostasy not only in the world, but also within Christianity subjects the West to a great chastisement. When a nation legalizes abortion and promotes artificial contraception, and when homosexuality enters God's Church you can be certain that He will not

CANADIAN HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION SEEKS TO SILENCE MARK STEYN OVER MUSLIM COMPLAINTS


Mark Steyn, author of America Alone, is being investigated by the Canadian Human Rights Commission and the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal in response to complaints about an excerpt from his book that was published in the Canadian journal Maclean’s. The complaints were filed by the Canadian Islamic Congress. They claim the article “subjects Canadian Muslims to hatred and contempt,” and was “flagrantly Islamophobic.”

This indeed is a new day for a Nation that calls itself free. Under an atheistic secular regime such as Canada, truth must be stifled and the messengers of truth imprisoned because the truth makes the enemies of Christ e.g., sodomites and muslims uncomfortable about themselves. The enemies of Christ are one when it comes to silencing the truth.

From Robert Spencer via
Human Events: "To be sure, [Steyn's] article was pretty strong stuff. Here’s Read More...

MUSLIM LAWYER SUES OVER ITALIAN "CRUSADER STYLE" FOOTBALL UNIFORM

It is small news items such as this that foretell the future of Europe. A Turkish Muslim lawyer is taking legal action over the uniform of the Inter-Milan football team stating that it offends him and reminds him of the Templar Knights.

From Timesonline: "Baris Kaska, a lawyer in Izmir who specialises in European law, said that he had lodged a complaint in a local court against Inter Milan, which last month played the Istanbul team Fenerbahce in a Champions League match at the San Siro stadium in Milan. The Inter players wore a new strip - a white shirt with a giant red cross on it - marking the club's centenary.

Mr Kaska said he was not only seeking damages but was also appealing to Uefa to annul the match, which Inter won 3-0."


“That cross only brings one thing to mind - the symbol of the Templar Knights, stated Kaska. It made me think immediately of the bloody days of the past. While I was watching the game I felt profound grief in my soul.” Kaska told the Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia that the cross on the uniform symbolised “Western racist superiority over Islam”.

He said that Inter had “manifested in the most explicit manner the superiority of one religion

WHY MUSLIM APOSTATES TURN TO ATHEISM


Hilaire Belloc said "Islam is apparently unconvertable. The missionary efforts made by great Catholic orders which have been occupied in trying to turn Mohammedans into Christians for nearly 400 years have everywhere wholly failed...we have had hardly any effect in converting individual Mohammedans..." Hilaire Belloc, The Great Heresies.

An interesting article by
Spengler of the Asia Times seems to answer the WHY of Belloc's statement. He points out that the god of Islam is "all transcendent". He is not subject to the natural law or even his own laws. Everything is random and subject to the whimsy of allah in the mind of a muslim. He controls every minute aspect of the world in accord with nothing other than his own ever-changing and unpredictable will. The arbitrariness of the god of Islam is much closer to atheism than it is to the God of Christianity and Judaism.

Spengler states:
"...[A]ll the Muslim apostates whose voices we hear are atheists - not only Hirsi Ali, but also Salman Rushdie, the celebrated author of The Satanic Verses, the Syrian poet Adonis, and the pseudonymous Ibn Warraq, author of Why I am not a Muslim and several compendia of Koranic criticism.

"Why do Muslim apostates gravitate towards atheism? That is not true of other religions. Many Jewish converts achieved prominence in 20th-century Christianity - for example, the recently deceased Cardinal

UK HOSPITAL STAFF IS ENCOURAGED TO TURN MUSLIM BEDS TOWARD MECCA FIVE TIMES DAILY


I am becoming convinced that Secularism is a form of insanity. Fr John Hardon S.J. said "it is sheerest sanity to adore God. And is insanity to not recognize that except for God we wouldn’t exist..." The effects of this insanity are being played out before our very eyes in Britain. Only insanity, devoid of grace, could explain the suicidal self-loathing that causes a people to condemn its own heritage in favor of a civilization that is bent on its own domination and destruction.

FROM
dailymail: "...[N]urses are being encouraged to spend valuable time turning around the beds of Muslim patients up to five times a day - so they can face Mecca.

In a bid to promote cultural understanding, they are also expected to provide patients with running water so they can wash before prayer.

And then, of course, they are required to turn the beds back around to return the wards to normality. The measures are being pursued by Mid Yorkshire NHS Trust to ensure Muslim patients have a "more

AWAITING THE POPE'S RESPONSE TO THE LETTER FROM 138 MUSLIMS


Chiesa recently published a very interesting article by Sandro Magister entitled
Why Benedict XVI Is So Cautious with the Letter of the 138 Muslims. Although there has not yet been a formal response from Pope Benedict to the letter, there have indeed been responses by Christian groups. One such response which was authored and signed by 300 scholars who were mostly Protestant is summed up by Magister:

"The message lavishes praise upon the letter of the 138. It endorses the letter's contents, or the indication of the love of God and neighbor as the "common word" between Muslims and Christians, Read More...

SAUDI KING AND HIS GIFT FOR THE POPE



We all heard how the King of Saudi Arabia visited the Pope this past week and that the Pope expressed his grief over the discrimination of Christian minorities in Muslim lands. But what most of us do not know is that the two exchanged gifts--Pope Benedict XVI gave the Saudi monarch an old painting of the Vatican while the king's gift to the pontiff was a sword.

Excerpts From
newyorksun.com: "As a gift from from a leading Islamic fundamentalist nation, a sword is about as clear a symbol of intolerance as there can be; and indeed, swords are used for public decapitations in Saudi Arabia on Fridays. The U.S. State Department's yearly human rights report cites Saudi Arabia for bigotry toward non-Muslims, including "harassment, abuse, and even killings at the hands of the Muttawa (religious police)."

"The newspaper L'Osservatore Romano said the Vatican hoped the meeting with the Saudi king would produce a frank dialogue

TO UNDERSTAND THE CALIPHATE IS TO UNDERSTAND THE NEXT MOVES OF RADICAL ISLAM





Here is a talk given by Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch about the next moves of Radical Islam.

BRITISH SCHOOL ORDERS STUDENTS AND TEACHERS TO DRESS LIKE MUSLIMS FOR A DAY

"It seems that whoever is not a relativist is someone who is intolerant. To think that one can understand the essential truth is already seen as something intolerant. However, in reality this exclusion of truth is a type of very grave intolerance and reduces essential things of human life to subjectivism. In this way, in essential things we no longer have a common view. Each one can and should decide as he can. So we lose the ethical foundations of our common life." Cardinal Ratzinger, 2002

FROM THE SUN: A school was yesterday accused of making teachers dress up as Asians for a day – to celebrate a Muslim festival.

Kids at the 257-pupil primary have also

PAINTBALL JIHAD


"... the time will come when anyone who kills you will think that by doing this he is serving God. People will do these things to you because they have not known either the Father or me." John 16:2-3

If you have ever participated in paintball then you know how effective such training could be for jihad--and right in our own backyard.

From NewsScotsman.com: U.K. An undercover police officer who went paintballing with a gang of suspected extremists was told it was preparation for jihad, a court heard yesterday.

The agent described how up to 25 young men travelled from east London for a day of outdoor activities in Berkshire.

But the officer told Woolwich Crown Court the alleged ringleader of the group, Mohammed Hamid, 50, quickly revealed the trip's true purpose.

The man, known as Dawood, said: "He told us the training was in preparation for jihad."

Five men are on trial accused of plotting to stage terrorist training camps at various UK locations. They deny the offences and the trial continues.

DENIAL OF JESUS REQUIRED FOR PEACE WITH ISLAM


"Do you suppose that I came to grant peace on earth? I tell you, no, but rather division; for from now on five members in one household will be divided, three against two, and two against three..."
Luke 12:51

"But he that shall deny me before men, I will also deny him before my Father who is in heaven."
Matthew 10:33

The liberal media gushed at the so called "unprecedented letter of peace" from Islam to Christians. But to those who actually read it and understand the critical differences between Islam and Christianity-- the letter was at best a sham and more likely a threat to Christians. The letter began with the following damming preface which defined the terms of negotiation at the outset:

"In the Holy Qur’an, God Most High enjoins Muslims to issue the following call to Christians (and Jews—the People of the Scripture):

Say: O People of the Scripture! Come to a common word between us and you: that we shall worship none but God, and that we shall ascribe no partner unto Him, and that none of us shall take others for lords beside God. And if they turn away, then say: Bear witness that we are they who have surrendered (unto Him). (Aal ‘Imran 3:64)"


Rather than an offer of peace it amounts to a threat--the only way peace can be obtained is to bow down and worship Allah. All negotiations naturally cease when Christ's divinity is denied, and

ISRAEL TO COME UNDER SHARIA LAW SAYS ISRAELI MUSLIM CLERIC

A leading Israeli Arab Muslim cleric said that the Jewish state will very soon cease to exist and the whole country will come under Sharia law to reconstitute the Islamic Caliphate.

From
Israeltoday: "In an interview with a local Arabic-language newspaper, Sheikh Kamal Khatib, deputy head of northern Israel's Islamic Movement, insisted that the world is "on the threshold of a new era. The future belongs to Islam and the Muslims."

Khatib said that in preparation for the coming Islamic takeover, Muslims who hold Israeli citizenship like himself should begin to actively rebel against the state by refusing to cooperate with and forming alternatives to the Israeli authorities.

Also at the weekend, Khatib's boss, Sheikh Raed Salah denounced current peace negotiations leading to a two-state solution to the Israeli-Arab conflict as an "evil Israeli scheme." Salah, who is also an Israeli citizen, has long maintained that that Muslim world must not recognize Israel's right to exist."

POPE CONDEMNS HATE AND VIOLENCE IN THE NAME OF GOD AND RELIGION

"To hate no man."
St Benedict, Rule No 4

"No religion is from God which contradicts our sense of right and wrong"
Card. Newman


NAPLES, Italy, OCT. 21, 2007 (Compiled from various news sources): Pope Benedict XVI urged the world's religious leaders not to allow God's name to be used to justify violence.

"Faced with a world lacerated by conflicts," the Holy Father said, "where at times violence is justified in the name of God, it is important to re-emphasize that religion can never be a vehicle of hate; never, in the

THE NETHERLANDS: AN INTERNAL STRUGGLE TO RETAIN FREEDOM AND SPEAK TRUTHFULLY ABOUT ISLAM

Earlier this week Dutch counter terrorism chief Tjibbe Joustra told a newspaper that he has "mixed feelings" about bold remarks on Islam.

"Radical remarks may push people who are already on the verge of using violence, over the edge," he said in reference to statements by opinion leaders like the liberal-right Freedom Party (PVV) leader Geert Wilders and Islam critic Ehsan Jami.

In response to the Joustra's dhimmi remarks, politician Geert Wilders and Ehsan Jami, founder of the Committee for ex-Muslims, took out a full page ad in a newspaper Wednesday harshly condemning Joustra's position as an attempt to silence the truth about Islam. Wilders and Jami warned against what they see as an attempt by Islam to conquer the world. They compared the Prophet Mohammed to Adolf Hitler.

"We consider that Joustra should catch terrorists instead of trying to muzzle

POPE BENEDICT-- A PROVOCATEUR OF ISLAM?

The media's love of divisiveness causes it to continuously portray Pope Benedict as a provocateur of Islam. Instead the Pope is a wise and responsible shepherd doing battle against evil while speaking the truth. He is not a politician seeking public approval and adulation--instead his actions are directed at pleasing God. But the truth will never be popular with the world-- as any sincere follower of Christ knows.

FROM
DAILYMAIL: "The Pope has again risked provoking the wrath of the Islamic world, by criticising its treatment of Christians.

Benedict XVI attacked Muslim nations where Christians are either persecuted or given the status of second-class citizens under the Shariah Islamic law.

He also defended the rights of Muslims to convert to Christianity, an act which

AL QAEDA CALLS ON N. AFRICAN MUSLIMS TO CLEANSE SOUTHERN EUROPE OF FRENCH AND SPANISH

We must take seriously the words of Al Qaeda. If there is one thing we have learned from this heretical cult is that they are persistent about their targets. They want the return of Andalusia and the submission of the "Crusaders and their children" under Allah, just as they wanted to bring about the destruction of the World Trade Center. They have taken aim and we can either bask in our denial, or pray and fast for the conversion of Islam and the reconversion of Europe. "A Christian revolution can succeed only by the use of just those means which are beyond the ability of others to use. If faith is able to move mountains, is it powerless to shift the mighty from their seats? If Christians, who live by faith in their private lives, lay aside their faith when they approach the things of political and social life, they must be content to be towed like slaves in the wake of history." J. Maritain

From Rueters: "Al Qaeda's second-in-command urged north Africa's Muslims in a video tape posted on Thursday to "cleanse" their land of Spaniards and French as a way to restore Muslim rule Read More...

CATHOLIC STUDENTS FORCED TO WEAR THE ISLAMIC VEIL

FROM ASIA NEWS: Jakarta (AsiaNews) –"It is happening in schools in the North of Sumatra. A Christian family raises the alarm, their daughters “have no other choice” but to dress according to Islamic customs. This is imposed by some local norms inspired by Sharia, which should only effect Muslim citizens.

"The increasing numbers of local laws inspired by Sharia...are threatening the religious freedom of non Muslims, forced to wear Islamic clothes.

"The latest episode reported by a Catholic family in Padang north Sumatra is worrying: Stefanus Prayog Ismu Rahardi has 3 children, 2 of whom attend state school; recently the teachers asked them to wear the Islamic veil or in Indonesian;  jilbab. “It’s the first time that it has happened – says the father – and my daughters are scared, I tried to make them see the veil as a simple accessory, but they clearly understand that the problem goes well beyond

FR CORAPI ON SEPTEMBER 11TH



Here is something to reflect upon as we enter the week of September 11.

POLL: RELIGION CAUSES HARM

A recent poll in the U.K. reveals that nearly half the British believe that religion is harmful.

"Only 16% of those polled called themselves atheists; 28% believed in God; 26% believed in “something” but were not sure what; and 9% regarded themselves as agnostics

“Even though the dominant faith - by a massive margin – is Christianity, only 17% thought the influence of religion was beneficial. That is even fewer than those who claim that they believe in a personal God. And yet when we asked which of the main religions was ‘most effective’ in getting its message across, most thought it was Christianity. Only 10% cited Islam compared with 32% who said Christianity.”

"In the survey 43% said they never prayed, 31% hardly prayed, and 10% prayed every night. “More than half of those who say they believe in a personal God cannot be bothered to pray to him every night,”

Many have come to view religion as harmful but irreligion is more harmful to humanity than religion is. It is the irreligious Read More...

ASSIMILATION ABSURDITIES

What is the liberal solution to radical Islam? State sponsored religion classes invoking the Koran to instill Western values. Sound oxymoronic?

The U.K. has introduced government sponsored and supported "civics-religion" lessons which teach Western values
from the Koran. The Labor government hopes this pilot program in Bradford will eventually spread to other cities, and help "assimilate" and "integrate" the country’s Muslims into British culture. The program is meant to replace the tedious, and hard-core religious lessons now taught in mosques. Those lessons emphasize rote learning of the Koran, and are taught by imams who were born in Pakistan. It is estimated that 100,000 school-age Muslim children attend daily religious classes after school in mosques in Britain.

The program was written by a Bradford teacher, Sajid Hussain, 34, who submitted proposed lesson plans to imams which were ultimately rejected. “They were perhaps a little too frontal,” Hussain said.

How "frontal" were the lesson plans that were rejected by the imams?

"In one example, the students were to be asked what they would do if a friend bought a large quantity of fertilizer and announced he planned

"ISLAM IS NO MERE DECORATION LIKE THE VATICAN IS FOR THE WEST"

Tehran - The secretary of Iran's National Security Council said Monday that the United States should know that Islam in the Muslim world was 'no decoration like the Vatican in the West,' the Mehr news agency reported.

'The US cannot by force impose the American way of life on Islamic societies, as democracy on the basis of secularism would not work (in the Islamic world)...Islam is not just a decoration in our lives, contrary to the West where the Vatican is decoration,' Ali Larijani, Iran's chief nuclear negotiator, said in a meeting with religious scholars in Tehran.

Unfortunately, Larijani's criticism is not entirely without merit. Due to the mass apostasy from the Christian Faith in the West, the Vatican and more importantly the Church, has become no more than an old discarded decoration and a vestige of the past. Only when our Faith becomes more than mere decoration, will our eyes be opened to the devastation that Islam poses to our civilization.

MUSLIM EXTREMISTS ARE NOT EXTREME--JUST ORTHODOX FAITHFUL

Here is an excerpt of an interview with Gregory Davis from Frontpagemag.com, the author of Religion of Peace? Islam's War Against the World. He also recently produced a dvd, Islam: What the West Needs to Know.

FP: Why do you think there is so much that the West actually doesn’t know about Islam? Why the impulse to deceive oneself?

Davis:The first is a natural if unwarrantable reluctance to face the very uncomfortable reality that there is an entire civilization seeking our subjugation under nothing less than a totalitarian system of government, i.e., Islamic (Sharia) law.

The second reason I believe is the persistence of the multicultural myth that all peoples, religions, and civilizations are morally equivalent...The unhappy truth is that the jihadists are, to a great extent, acting
