The Library of Islamic Knowledge officially opened last weekend in downtown Houston. Mayor Sylvester Turner, joined by former Houston Rockets Hall of Famer Hakeem Olajuwon, cut the ribbon of the lavish $2.5 million dollar library housed within the Islamic Da’wah Center.

At the ribbon cutting ceremony, Turner said: “This place is not just for Muslims, but everyone,” noting it opens the door for people of all faiths to learn about a different part of the highly diverse city of Houston, according to the Houston Chronicle.

The Houston newspaper described the venue as “white marble floors of the opulent library contrast with its mahogany brown tables and bookshelves – some of which remain empty.” There’s no shortage of gold in sight. The library’s executive director, Ameer Abuhalimeh, said it cost around $2.5 million.

“The center is dedicated to the history, culture and public education of Islam,” said Abuhalimeh. “Our goal isn’t just to promote a balanced perspective of Islam, but also to serve downtown Houston and the community at-large,” he added. The library is open to the public and is part of a larger goal to offer a comprehensive educational resource to Houston residents.

The Islamic Da’wah Center opened in 2002 on the site of the former Houston National Bank. Olajuwon, who converted to Islam early on in his NBA career, bought the property in 1994, converting it into the three-story mosque that houses a main prayer hall, meeting rooms, classrooms, offices, and a kitchen. It was the first mosque in downtown Houston, according to the center’s website, and the first in the city “dedicated for Da’wah” (also spelled Dawa or Dawah).

Broadly defined, Dawah means preaching, proselytizing or calling non-believers to Islam. Dawah is viewed in classic Islamic law as a communal obligation, meaning it is the general responsibility of the Muslim community,” says Kyle Shideler with the Center for Security Policy.

During the ribbon cutting ceremony, Turner also said he was happy the center will continue to serve as an educational resource for middle schools, high schools, and colleges in the area, something it has done since its soft opening two months ago, as reported by the Houston newspaper.

In 2015, the Houston Independent School District opened its Arabic immersion magnet public school, which the Qatar Foundation International (QFI) granted the district’s Board of Education $75,000 for “Arabic language activities and Arab cultural events for students, teacher professional development, educational resources, the promotion of the Arabic language, community outreach, and curriculum development” as part of the school’s educational mission. Similarly, Olajuwon described a demand for the library to help the museum “complete the educational mission of the institution,” in the Chronicle article.

Houston has the state’s largest Muslim population, which, by some estimates, accounts for 1.2 percent of the city’s population. The U.S. Census Bureau’s most current 2014 available statistics estimate 2,239,558 people reside in the city of Houston. The 2014 Social, Economic and Demographic Characteristics of Metro Houston identified Arab as an ancestry for 0.7% or 41,653 people as part of the current Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown Metro area (based on the 2013 American Community Survey) of a 6,313,158 total population. In the Houston newspaper article, Abuhalimeh claimed 200,000 Muslims live in Houston.

In 2015, the San Antonio Express-News reported there were about 80 mosques and, at least, 10 Muslim schools in HoustonAccording to a 2007 Pew Research Center survey, 65 percent of adult Muslims in the U.S. are foreign born. Pew’s 2011 survey of Muslim Americans noted  more Muslims came to the U.S. in recent years: 12 percent came before 1980; 16 percent, during the 1980s; 31 percent, in the 1990s; and 40 percent since 2000.

In January 2016, Pew reported just over half of the projected growth of the U.S. Muslim population from 2010 to 2015 was because of immigration. They estimate 3.3 million Muslims of all ages live in the U.S., comprising around 1 percent of the nation’s population. Based on age, fertility, mortality, migration, and religious switching drawn from multiple sources, including the 2011 survey, Pew projects the U.S. Muslim population to double by 2050.


It will more than double by 2050.

Muslim terrorists behead Canadian, kill gay USAID worker in separate attacks

Religion of peace. Source: Canadian killed by terrorist group in Philippines, another held hostage – The Globe and Mail

A terrorist group in the Philippines has killed John Ridsdel, the 68-year-old Canadian kidnapped last September – an execution Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called “cold-blooded murder” and the man’s family said was “senseless.”

A second Canadian, 50-year-old Robert Hall, remains captive, a Canadian government official confirmed.

Mr. Ridsdel was a world traveller who had made the Philippines his home. He was a passionate sailor, experienced in living and travelling in conflict areas, and a father of two adult daughters.

He was held for a ransom by the terrorist organization Abu Sayyaf and beheaded after the deadline passed.

On Monday evening, during a power outage in the Philippine municipality of Jolo, two men on motorcycles threw a plastic bag into a square near the town’s municipal offices and police station.

Children playing nearby initially ran from the bag, believing it to be a bomb, said Dr. Raden Ikbala, a local physician. But when “they opened it, they saw the head of a man,” he said, and reported it to police.

Such tactics have been used before by local militants.

“Sometimes they throw the heads in public places so that it will be discovered,” said Dick Gordon, a Philippine senator who had been asked several months ago to negotiate the release of the hostages. He said it appears “he was executed because of the failure to pay the ransom” – although none of the circumstances are clear.

The men on the motorcycle, Mr. Gordon said, left a chilling message as they departed.

“They threw it, and they said, ‘We will be back.’ We don’t know why they said that.”

Abu Sayyaf, the jihadi group that allegedly killed Mr. Ridsdel…has pledged allegiance to Islamic State…


Elsewhere, Al Qaeda claims responsibility for murder of gay rights activist in Bangladesh

The Bangladeshi branch of Al Qaeda claimed responsibility Tuesday for the killing of a gay rights activist and his friend, undermining the prime minister’s insistence just hours earlier that her political opponents were to blame for the attack and for a rising tide of violence against secular activists and writers.

The claim by Ansar-al-islam — which said it targeted the two men on Monday night because they were “pioneers of practicing and promoting homosexuality” — raised doubts about Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s repeated assurances that authorities have the security situation under control.

The victims of the attack were identified as Xulhaz Mannan, an activist who also worked for the U.S. Agency for International Development, and his friend, theater actor Tanay Majumder. Mannan, a cousin of former Foreign Minister Dipu Moni of the governing party, was also an editor of Bangladesh’s first gay rights magazine, Roopbaan. Majumder sometimes helped with the publishing, local media said.

Mannan had written openly about the frustration of living “in the closet” as a gay man in Bangladesh, where homosexual relations are considered a crime. In a May 2014 blog, he said gays and lesbians in Bangladesh experience “A country where the predominant religions say you are a sinner, the law of the land says you are a criminal, the social norms say you are a pervert, the culture considers you as imported.”

He launched the magazine in 2014, giving the country’s small and secretive lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community its first open platform. Earlier this month, he tried to organize a Rainbow Rally in the capital, but was foiled when police briefly detained him and three others.

Ansar-al Islam, the Bangladeshi branch of Al Qaeda on the Indian subcontinent, or AQIS, claimed responsibility in a Twitter message on Tuesday for what it called a “blessed attack” on Mannan and Majumder.

It said the two were killed because they were “pioneers of practicing and promoting homosexuality in Bangladesh” and were “working day and night to promote homosexuality … with the help of their masters, the U.S. crusaders and its Indian allies.”


But the U.S. media is focused on transgender bathrooms.

Muslim in Minnesota Plotted with ISIS to Route Jihadis Through Mexico to US

Court documents reveal that a Minnesota Muslim who was allegedly plotting with others to join the Islamic State discussed routing potential terrorists through Mexico to carry out attacks on U.S. soil.

Gules Ali Omar reportedly told members of ISIS that a route through Mexico into the United States could be used to smuggle in potential terrorists according to documents obtained by Breitbart Texas that were filed by prosecutors earlier this week.

Omar was alleged to have been conspiring with a group of Muslim men to join the fight with ISIS to carry out attacks against this country.

Prosecutors said in the documents that Omar spoke of how one of the defendants “found a means of reaching Syria by going through Mexico.” He then allegedly said that “defendants will be able to tell ISIL of the route so that ISIL can send fighters into the United States via that route to mount attacks.”

The documents were filed by prosecutors arguing why their evidence should be admitted in a trial scheduled to begin in May against Omar and some of his alleged conspirators.

Omar is set to stand trial along with Hamza Naj Ahmed, Mohamed Abdihamid Farah, and Abdirahman Yasin Daud.

Boston: ISIS suspects ‘tried to organize beheadings of non-believers from jail’

A New England ISIS suspect tried to organise the beheadings of ‘non-believers’ from inside jail while awaiting trial on terror charges, prosecutors claim.

Nicholas Rovinski of Warwick, Rhode Island and his co-accused David Wright of Everett, Massachusetts were arrested and charged in June 2015 with providing material support to ISIS.

However, following a hearing at US District Court in Boston on Thursday, the pair were also charged with plotting to kill conservative blogger Pamela Geller.

Prosecutors allege Rovinski and Wright received instructions from a foreign-based ISIS recruiter.

Rovinski and Wright both pleaded not guilty to the terrorism charges.

The court heard the pair allegedly plotted with Wright’s uncle Usaamah Rahim to behead blogger Pamela Geller, who is known for provoking Muslims. The plot was not carried out.

Thursday’s indictment says ISIS recruiter and hacker Junaid Hussain communicated instructions about the plot directly to Rahim from overseas in May 2015. It says Rahim then told his nephew.

Hussain was killed in a US drone strike in Syria in August. The US military has said Hussain had been recruiting sympathizers in the West to carry out lone-wolf terrorist attacks.

Rahim was killed June 2 by investigators who say he lunged at them with a knife when they approached him in Boston.

According to the indictment, even from jail, Rovinski has tried to recruit people to help carry out plans for violent attacks in the United States, including to decapitate non-believers.

Geller last year organized a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest that ended in gunfire in Garland, Texas, with two Muslim gunmen shot to death by police. She has spearheaded scores of events across the nation to decry Islamic extremism.

According to the new indictment, Rovinski has continued to support Islamic State while in jail by trying to recruit others to ‘decapitate non-believers’ and take down the U.S. government and by writing a new pledge of support to the group’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, on the back of his own criminal complaint.

Rovinski and Wright pleaded not guilty to the original charge of conspiring to provide material support to a designated terrorist organization after they were arrested in June, and they were due to face trial in February 2017.

According to the new indictment, Rovinski and Wright plotted their attacks with Wright’s uncle, Usaamah Abdullah Rahim, who was shot dead by law enforcement officers last June when Boston police and agents for the Federal Bureau of Investigation approached him and he threatened them with a knife.

The indictment accused Rahim of beginning communication one month before he was shot with a British member of Islamic State, Junaid Hussain. Hussain was believed by government sources to be the leader of CyberCaliphate, a hacking group that last year attacked a Twitter account belonging to the Pentagon.

The indictment said Hussain gave Rahim instructions that Rahim passed on to Wright about targeting individuals such as Pamela Geller, organizer of a ‘Draw Mohammad’ cartoon competition in Garland, Texas, that was attacked by two gunmen last May.

Hussain was killed in a US drone strike in Syria last August.

Wright has pleaded not guilty to charges he alone faced of obstructing justice and conspiring to obstruct justice after he was accused of instructing Rahim to delete his phone and laptop data.

Wright and Rovinski now face maximum sentences of life in prison as a result of the new charges announced on Thursday. They are scheduled to be arraigned on April 28, according to the docket report in their case.

Muslim student kicked off Southwest Air flight was overheard speaking about ISIS in Arabic

According to the Arabic-speaking woman who reported him.

Source: What the media didn’t tell you about Arabic-speaking Muslim student who got kicked off Southwest Airlines | Walid Shoebat

The mainstream media went ballistic after learning that an Iraqi student was removed from a flight after an alleged ‘Islamophobic’ woman reported him because she heard him speaking Arabic. Left wing pundits and Muslim advocacy groups demanded to know why “speaking Arabic” is a reason to remove someone from a plane and were calling for boycotts of Southwest Airlines.

What the media conveniently left out is that the (see-something-say-something) woman is a native Arabic speaker and said he was talking about terror group ISIS.

via Student Kicked Off Flight For Speaking Arabic Was Reportedly Overheard Mentioning ISISLawNewz

Makhzoomi told the Post that he called his uncle, who lives in Baghdad, after boarding a Southwest Airlines flight in Los Angeles earlier this month. He says the two had a conversation in Arabic about an event Makhzoomi attended the night before.

Makhzoomi says he received strange looks from a woman who then got up and he believes reported him to the flight crew.  The next thing he knew, Makhzoomi says he was escorted off the plane and eventually taken into an interrogation room where he was questioned by the FBI before ultimately being released.

Well, on Tueday, on Happening Now on Fox News, guest host Heather Nauert provided some important additional details about the story that somehow did not make it into the Washington Post profile on Monday.

According to the Happening Now report, the woman who allegedly reported Makhzoomi to the airline crew was actually an Arabic speaker herself.  This woman reportedly said that she overheard Makhzoomi mention ISIS and possibly another terror group during his phone conversation and that is why she alerted the airline crew.

Perhaps that explains why Makhzoomi has reportedly turned down offers from multiple lawyers to file a lawsuit against the airline. For the record, both lawyers who appeared in the legal segment on Happening Now where this report was discussed both agreed that under these circumstances, Makhzoomi likely does not have a valid claim against the airline.

Ireland: Students required to study Koran as part of Arabic exam

HolyfookingkoranSource: Concern over requirement to study Koran as part of Leaving Cert Arabic exam

A requirement that all students who sit the Arabic exam in the Leaving Cert must study the Koran is to be reviewed by education authorities.

Ever since the subject was introduced to the Leaving Cert in 2004, extracts from the “Holy Koran” have been prescribed material for all candidates.

However, a Syrian father whose Christian daughter is due to sit the exam says the requirement is unfair for students and discriminatory.

“She, as a Christian, has never studied the Koran,” said Marwan, who asked that his surname not be used.

“I am very distressed that having arrived in Ireland and having been granted refugee status on the basis of the threat to us as Christians we should now be discriminated against in this way.

He added: “Since my daughter’s exam is only weeks away I would respectfully appeal to those in a position to rectify this injustice to do so immediately.”

In a statement, the State body for development subject material, the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA), said the Koran was included on the basis of its linguistic and literary value and not because of its association with religion.

It said the requirement for questions based on the Koran are explicitly stated in the syllabus.

In the Arabic exam, candidates are presented with three texts: an extract from the Koran, a portion of Arabic verse and an extract from a work of modern Arabic prose.

The questions related to the Koran are mandatory for all candidates, while candidates may choose from a portion of verse and modern prose.

The NCCA said the syllabus is being reviewed and this will consider the “range and sources” of prescribed texts.

This includes concerns over the mandatory status of questions relating to Koran.

Eight separate sections of the Koran are identified as prescribed texts in the exam.

One of the sections urges, for example, says followers should “remember Allah’s favour on you when you were enemies of each other” and that “while you were on a brink of a pit of Fire then He delivered from it!.”

It goes on to advise believers to “be not like those who separated, and disagreed after clear evidences had come to them; and these are they that will have a grievous chastisement.”

About 55,000 students sit the Leaving Cert each year, while between 100 and 150 students undertake the Arabic exam.

In common with other minority languages, the proportion of students who receive honours in the exam – about 85 per cent – is particularly high. This, say teachers, is due to the number of students who are native speakers.


Jihad Watch writes of the Koran quote above:

That’s Qur’an 3:103.

It goes on to advise believers to “be not like those who separated, and disagreed after clear evidences had come to them; and these are they that will have a grievous chastisement.”

That’s Qur’an 3:105.

How did this requirement get put in place at all? Probably it was done by Islamic supremacists who were counting on the ignorance and complacency of Irish authorities, and were quite correct in assuming that no one would notice or care. The “Leaving Cert,” or Leaving Certificate Examinations, are the final exams in Ireland’s secondary school system.

Islam and the Christian Genocides in Turkey

Source: Islam and the Christian Genocides in Turkey | Gates of Vienna
by Serkan Engin

As some have said in the West: in truth the Armenian, Assyrian, Chaldean, Nestorian and Pontian Greek genocides* were “Christian genocides”. On the other side were Muslim Turks and Kurds. The basis in society and the justification in conscience of these genocides were Islamic rules.

Islam gives permission to all Muslims to kill and rape every non-Muslim, and also to grab all their money and property. The de facto killers in these genocides were the predatory bands of the “Secret Organization” (In Turkish: Teşkilatı Mahsusa). The Turks and Kurds who killed their non-Muslim neighbours, enslaved their women and little girls as sex slaves, and grabbed all their property, had no awareness of “nationalism,” as did their commanders, the leaders of the Union and Progress Organization. So the Turks and Kurds who took part in the Armenian, Assyrian, Chaldean, Nestorian and Pontian Greek genocides massacred innocent humans with pleasure, did not do all this for the benefit of “Turkish nationalism”. They were simple farmers, describing themselves as “Muslim”, but not as “Turkish” or “Kurdish”.

The massacre order given by the Union and Progress Organization leaders was a gift for the Turks who lived as predators for two thousand years, and only turned to agriculture and the breeding of livestock in Anatolia. They considered it a gift because they got the chance to pillage their “rich” non-Muslim neighbours on the order of their government, and also they could take revenge upon non-Muslims who had, in their eyes, a great deal of money.

Kurds had been living in the same region for thousands of years and didn’t have ability, aptitude and historical experience except in the jobs of agriculture and the breeding of livestock. They, like their Turkish coreligionists, became happy too, because along with the Turks they would loot the money and property of the non-Muslims.

Muslim Turks and Kurds pulled their non-Muslim neighbours to pieces with the appetite and wildness of hyenas without any mercy; moreover, they gloated over all of this. They grabbed all the houses and stores of the non-Muslims, and they enslaved the women of non-Muslims as sex slaves and also domestic slaves in their “harems” as their “booty,” as is ordered by the rules of Islam. And they sold some of these women and girls at the slave bazaars for a bit of money.

The perpetrators of this terrible period didn’t feel any self-reproach. On the contrary, they were very happy, because they became more worthy of Allah, the god of Islam. They became better Muslims with these disgusting massacres. So they came closer to the heaven of Islam, with its many houris (group sex) and open buffet bar (rivers of kevser wines).


(Click to enlarge)

They were at peace with themselves because they were obeying the laws of their own god, Allah, and the government.

They raped tiny girls and women, slaughtered innocent humans, burned children alive, and massacred millions of non-Muslims by the order of the “peaceful” religion Islam.

Because their Allah was very merciless to the ones who disbelieved.

* In 1913, the Turkish Ottoman government of the supposedly liberal Committee of Union and Progress initiated a program of forcible Turkification of non-Turkish minorities. Starting in 1915 the government turned to deliberate extermination of indigenous and Christian ethnic groups — Assyrians, Greeks, Armenians, Chaldeans and Nestorians. Most well-known is the wholesale slaughter and destruction of the Armenian Christians living in what is modern-day Turkey. It is estimated that between 1 and 1.5 million Armenians were killed. In 1943 the Armenian holocaust inspired the Polish-American lawyer Raphael Lemkin to coin the term “genocide” to define the planned and systematic extermination of entire nations or ethnic groups.The genocides ordered by the Turkish government and perpetrated by Turkish and Kurdish Muslims are accepted as fact by serious Western historians but are till this day strenuously denied by the Turkish authorities.
