Hegazi case: Islam’s obsession with conversions

by Samir Khalil Samir, sj
The case of Mohammad Hegazi, young Egyptian converted to Christianity, who wishes to be legally recognized as such, has opened a new debate in the Islamic world on conversions, which are often seen as acts of apostasy that merit death. What has emerged is a veritable obsession in Islam for personal conversions, this religion having been reduced more to an ethnic and sociological submission.

Amanpour's Apologia



Global Jihad: CNN's chief apologist for Islam, Christiane Amanpour, has gone too far this time. Not content to just whitewash jihad, she says Jews and Christians are terrorists, too.

According to her new three-part series, "God's Warriors," militant Islamists are really no different than right-wing Christians or Jews. So who are we in the West to judge?

Congress Must Recognize the Armenian Genocide 


By Andrew G. Bostom


A combination of official diplomatic correspondence, and private memoirs -- most notably the diaries of Henry Morgenthau, the U.S. ambassador to Turkey from 1913 to 1916, an extended report by American consul Leslie Davis in Harput, Turkey, from 1915 to 1917, and the recently published United States Official Records on the Armenian Genocide, 1915-1917 -- provides lucid

Egypt's choice
By Nir Boms and Michael Meunier

  Washington Times   

The freedom to believe may be considered a sacred right in some parts of the world - but not in others. Which is why Mohammed Hegazy, 24, and his wife made history in the Arab world when they became the first known Muslims to file a lawsuit against Egypt for refusing to legally recognize their conversion to Christianity.

Barbarians kill as West drifts


There comes a point at which diminishing returns on most issues begin to go negative.

Such a point in denouncing Islamist terrorism and equally the Muslim majority's silence against this menace was reached sometime ago.

Which Islam? Whose Islam?

 All Muslims Own the Interpretation of the Koran (Part I of 3)
M. Zuhdi Jasser


Radical interpretation of the Koran is caused by 19th century Wahhabi fundamentalist radicalism and 20th century political Islam. In this series, FSM Contributing Editor M. Zuhdi Jasser urges modern, peaceful Muslims to interpret the Koran themselves in order to break away from this radicalism.

Stop the NYC Madrassa

by Daniel Pipes New York Sun 

When Dhabah "Debbie" Almontaser resigned as principal of the Khalil Gibran International Academy on August 10, her action culminated a remarkable grassroots campaign in which concerned citizens successfully criticized the New York City establishment.

Joan Smith: These preachers of hate must be exposed

The decision to investigate the Wahhabi influence in British mosques cannot be faulted

Published: 14 August 2007

In January last year, the Government suffered two shock defeats when MPs refused to overturn amendments made in the Lords to one of its flagship bills. The second division was lost by a single vote: the slenderest of majorities, but sufficient, it now turns out, to save Channel 4 from a prosecution for incitement to religious hatred.

How I escaped Islamism

The Sunday Times 

For almost four years I was on the front line of British Islamism serving as a regional officer in northeast England for Hizb ut-Tahrir, an extremist group committed to the creation of a puritanical caliphate. Since leaving in 2005, I’ve been concerned at just how easy it was for me to join a radical Islamist movement — and why there was hardly any support available when I decided to leave.

Don't let them terrorize our freedoms

By Diana West
Friday, August 10, 2007

 Remember when we heard that if only our leaders had known how to "connect the dots," the 9/11 attacks could have been prevented? After nearly six years without a similar attack, the government has learned much about detecting the outlines of jihadist terror plots before they take shape. As a result -- and after all the aggravations and humiliations of what I still hope are temporary safety procedures -- our security has remained essentially intact. But can we say the same thing about our freedoms?

The Prison Officers Association says that it is worried about radical Muslims preaching in British jails – where it is estimated that Muslims comprise around 11% of the entire UK prison population of 80,000! One of the problems is that many radical Muslims see it as their duty to spread the Islamic word, and where better than in institutions with “captive audiences”!  




Egyptian Court in Controversial Ruling: Christians Who Convert to Islam Cannot Convert Back

A public debate has been underway in Egypt over the regime's treatment of the country's Christians. This debate emerged following lawsuits by Christians who had converted to Islam and then reconverted to Christianity, and who were now demanding that the Egyptian Interior Ministry issue them new official documents in their original names and with "Christian" in the "religion" entry field.

The Muslim Brotherhood “Project”

By Patrick Poole

One might be led to think that if international law enforcement authorities and Western intelligence agencies had discovered a twenty-year old document revealing a top-secret plan developed by the oldest Islamist organization with one of the most extensive terror networks in the world to launch a program of “cultural invasion” and eventual conquest of the West that virtually mirrors the tactics used by Islamists for more than two decades, that such news would scream from headlines published on the front pages and above the fold of the New York Times, Washington Post, London Times, Le Monde, Bild, and La Repubblica.
