Muslim Call To Prayer Will Be Broadcast Across New Zealand This Friday

Jacinda Ardern, the Prime Minister of New Zealand, has announced that the Muslim call to prayer will be broadcast across New Zealand this Friday on national television and radio channels, following a two minute silence to mark the Christchurch shooting.

Speaking at a press conference in Christchurch on Wednesday afternoon, Ms Ardern said:

“I know from many there is a desire to show support to the Muslim community as they return to mosques, particularly on Friday.

“There is also a desire amongst New Zealanders to mark the week that has passed since the terrorist attack.

“To acknowledge this, there will be a two-minute silence on Friday. We will also broadcast nationally via TVNZ and RadioNZ the Call to Prayer.”

The Adhan or call to prayer is a statement of Islamic faith which is broadcast from the minarets of larger mosques, or the door of smaller mosques, to gather in faithful Muslims.

The words of the Adhan are as follows:

Allahu Akbar
God is Great
(said four times)
Ashhadu an la ilaha illa Allah
I bear witness that there is no god except the One God.
(said two times)
Ashadu anna Muhammadan Rasool Allah
I bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of God.
(said two times)
Hayya ‘ala-s-Salah
Hurry to the prayer (Rise up for prayer)
(said two times)
Hayya ‘ala-l-Falah
Hurry to success (Rise up for Salvation)
(said two times)
Allahu Akbar
God is Great
(said two times)
La ilaha illa Allah
There is no god except the One God

According to some reports, the Adhan will also be broadcast throughout the New Zealand Parliament and government buildings.

120 Christians Slaughtered by Nigerian Muslim Militia

One Hundred and Twenty Christians have been killed by Fulani Militant Herdsmen since February in the Kaduna state of Nigeria. They have relentlessly destroyed the villages of Inkirimi, Dogonnoma and Ungwan Gora. Approximately 50% of Nigerians are Muslim and 43.2% of Nigerians are Christians. Nigeria has ranked the 12th worst country in the world when it comes to Christian persecution as it continues on, in this region.

According to WorldAtlas

The attack on Monday killed 52 people and 143 homes were destroyed. Many families were badly injured and killed, most of which were women and children. Survivors of the horrific attack say that the militant herdsmen were divided into three groups. The first group shot and killed the people, the second group set buildings, people, and homes on fire and the third group, went after those who tried fleeing the scene.

The heinous incident that took place on Monday, followed with an attack the day before. In Ungwan Barde Village, Muslim Extremists massacred 17 Christians with the burning of many homes. Fulani jihadists have become a greater threat to the lives of Christians than the Islamist terror group called Boko Haram.

Nigerian Christians Burned Alive by Terror Group Boku Haram

During the first week of March Muslim extremists massacred more than 30 Nigerian Christians in the Karamar village. They also set churches and houses on fire which seems to be a pattern carried out by those who persecute Christians in the Region. The Muslim extremists mercilessly shot at any families that tried to escape the fire, killing 32 innocent Christian people. 

According to the Christian Post, in 2018 thousands of Christians have been killed. Many are calling this Massacre a Christian Genocide in Nigeria’s Middle Belt. CSW a United Nations well known organization that advocate’s for persecuted Christians worldwide, believe that the violence could have been amplified by Kaduana Governor El Rufai. His claim of 66 killed Fulani’s on the eve of Nigeria’s presidential elections, caused the death of 133 Nigerian Christians. Not all Muslim people are extremists but we can’t continue to pretend that Islam is the religion of peace it claims to be when the Quran supports these acts. 

Christianity Site States the Following:

“By most conservative counts, the Quran contains over 100 passages that call Muslims to take up arms against unbelievers in the name of Allah.

“Kill them [unbelievers] wherever you find them… And fight them until there is no more unbelief and worship is for Allah alone” (Quran 2:191-193).

“Strike off their heads and strike from them every fingertip” (Quran 8:12).

“Allah has purchased from the believers their lives and their properties; in exchange for that they will have Paradise. They fight in the cause of Allah, so they slay and are slain” (Quran 9:111).

“Truly Allah loves those who fight in His cause in battle array…” (Quran 61:4)

“The Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, and that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah” (Sahih Muslim 1:33).


Therefore, when Muslim terrorists take up the call to arms in the name of Allah, they are fulfilling the Quran, not opposing it.

Funeral For Christian Nigerians

CSW is mandating the Nigerian Federal Government to address the uproar and slaughter against Christians. The Federal Governor seems to not want to step in and do something about the conflict; although very capable of doing so. One thing is for sure, acts of violence is not okay no matter the race, religion, or why. The silent persecution of Christians around the world continues to grow and barely get’s covered. The sad truth is that many of these acts come from the East and are being fulfilled by Muslim Extremists Groups. Around the world Christians are being Jailed or Killed for Preaching and equally not denouncing the name of Jesus Christ.

About 10 months Ago President Trump met with President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari in the Oval Office on April 30th. Buhari is the first African leader to visit Trump in the White House and although President Trump Addressed his concerns for the killings of Christians in Nigeria, since then it’s just continued. God bless the people of Nigeria and please actually do stop for one second of your day and Pray for Nigeria.

Islam: Sharia, Muhammad, Five Pillars, and Ethics

By Penny Hoffmann

Islam, the world’s second-largest and fastest-growing religion, means “submission” to the will of Allah. “Muslim” means “one who submits” to Allah where “Allah” translates to “God” in Arabic. The literal meaning of Sharia – or Al-Shari’ah – is “the revealed law”. ‘Adherents of Islam are admonished by Allah to follow the clear and right way, the path of Shari’ah. Sharia law is based upon the word of Allah as expressed in the Qur’an, and the Sunnah, the traditions of Muhammad.

Sharia

Sharia courts are essentially religious courts and there is no separation between church and state. It reaches into all aspects of one’s life. Sharia is not just the source of law, but is the source of all principles of Islamic life. Examples of this are: the requirement that women must wear a hijab in public, the prohibition on dating and marriage between a Muslim and non-Muslim, and abandonment of the Muslim faith being considered a crime.

The fact that Sharia law is taken directly from the Qur’an means that it is, in theory, unchanging and invariable. This is in direct contrast to secular law in locations such as Australia as secular law constantly evolves, both through the development of precedent and the passing of and amendments to legislation.

Muslims suggest that Islam was not founded by Muhammad, but rather it is rooted in the Abrahamic bloodline and thus much of the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament is Islamic, but Judaism and Christianity have corrupted them over time. Islam teaches that the Quran is the final and unaltered word of God, revealed to the last prophet, Muhammad, sent to mankind. Muhammad was born in 570AD and is, according to Muslims, God’s final prophet.

The Five Pillars of Islam

Islam has five pillars (basic acts). These are:

  1. Shahadah – there is one God and that is Allah. This means that Muslims are Unitarians, thus they reject the trinity.
  2. Salah – Salah means prayer, which Muslims do five times a day.
  3. Sakat – giving alms or charity.
  4. Hajj – an annual (if an adult Muslim is physically and financially capable of it while supporting their family) Islamic pilgrimage to the House of Allah (Kaaba) at Makkah (Mecca) at least once in their lifetime.
  5. Fasting – fasting occurs in the month of the Ramadan.

Islamic Ethics

Muslims rely on sacred texts, where the Quran is the main sacred text, and authority within religious structures of Islam, known as doctors of the law. The basis for Islamic ethics is the relationship one has with Allah, oneself, and the community.

Arguments For and Against the Acceptance of Sharia Law in Australia

By Penny Hoffmann

Islam, a monotheistic religion, is the world’s second-largest religion. Some Western nations have partially accepted Sharia law into their country, whilst others are wanting nothing to do with it.

Here are some of the arguments in support of and in opposition to the acceptance of Sharia law:

FOR

Freedom of religion is protected in the Australian constitution, and is classed as a right.
Accepting Sharia allows for an avenue for Muslims to settle family law matters according to Sharia. There is often no Australian judicial equivalent.
Muslims are already living their lives according to Sharia . There are more than 604,000 Muslims already living in Australia. Allowing Sharia would allow those practicing underground to be practicing publicly and by their own law.
Accepting Sharia does not mean the rejection of Australian laws, but rather a desire to conform to Sharia where possible. Legally, there are already areas where Sharia is accepted because both legal systems share similarities.
There is diversity within Islam, like Christianity, thus some Islamic denominations or sects would share more similarities with the Australian legal system.
There is a limited number of scholars who are fully trained in interpreting Sharia. Why should we deny something that we do not understand?
Exposing Muslims to the Australia’s secular legal system allows them to see both sides of what it is like to be in a Muslim culture compared to what is it like in a secular culture. This allows Muslims to decide with more experience what path they would like to follow.

 

AGAINST

 

Australia follows a one law for all model. Giving some privilege over others for doing the same thing is unequal. There is conflict among Muslim communities that concerns equality. Some do not desire the special treatment of a legal system and argue a case for equality.
Religion plays no part in the formal legal system.

 

Accepting Sharia is more problematic for Muslim wives, especially in divorce where one will have to find a third party to plead her case
There are variations throughout denominations and schools of Islamic thought, thus it is not always possible to have one law for all Muslims because of the diversity of Islam. One law for all could create greater divisions and isolation between Muslims and non-Muslims. Some Muslims who have fled a Sharia system may like the security of the Australian justice system, and there are Muslims who advocate for civil and individual rights. In Australia, Muslims come from over 70 different countries, and not all of these countries share the same Islamic beliefs. There are a limited number of scholars who are fully trained in interpreting Sharia. Why should we accept something that we do not understand properly?

Australia does not need to accept Sharia as immigrants should conform to the laws of the nation they arrive in.

 

Austria to close mosques funded by Turkey, kicking out 60 Imams

By Nikos Tsinakis

The Austrian government announced earlier on Friday, that it’ll expel 60 imams and close down 7 mosques with funding traced back to Turkey.

Although the Announcement came from Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, who has been targeted by left wing media ever since he won the Austrian election last year, this move simply has nothing to do with new policies enacted by his right-leaning government. This announcement is rooted in a 2015 law that forbids foreign funding of religious institutions.

However, it is clear that Kurz does intend to uphold all pre-existing laws to the benefit of his country at maximum capacity, even if it means eventually evoking protest from the EU, no doubt, on the basis of “racism”. “Political Islam’s parallel societies and radicalizing tendencies have no place in our country,” said Kurz at a press conference. His vice chancellor, Heinz-Christian Strache, added ominously, “This is just the beginning.”

turkish-islamists
The turks as a collective, have more loyalty towards Erdogan than any European government they are living under


Turks have no place in Europe

Forty of the Imams under investigation are apart of the “Turkish-Islamic union of social cooperation” an organisation funded by the Turkish government and helps with managing the Turkish mosques in the country, sounds dystopian enough? There are currently 600,000 muslims living in Austria, a country with only a population of 8.8 million, the vast majority of these muslims also happens to be Turkish. Turks at large, simply do not assimilate to the European countries they’re living in, we know this from the widely mobilized demonstrations in European cities in support of Recep Tayyip Erdogan during the Turkish elections. Erdogan’s government has been increasingly theocratically aligned after carrying out a purge in the Turkish government and military following a failed coup in 2016. The seven mosques in question, have been accused by the Austrian authorities after an investigation for practicing Salafism, an extremist brand of Islam. This is an alarming reflection on what potentially could be a large number of muslims in the country are also actively practicing extremist Islam.


A case of radical Islam allying with social justice

Turkish President Erdogan has condemned the move with immediate urgency, his spokesman Ibrahim Khalid decried the Austrian government’s decision on Twitter as “a reflection of the Islamophobic, racist and discriminatory wave in this country” and “an attempt to target Muslim communities for the sake of scoring cheap political points.” – Speaking of cheap political points, it’s kinda awfully ironic that this accusation is coming from the same person using the word “Islamophobia” to seek assistance from the western left by using these invented terms. News Flash: Islamophobia implies people are afraid of muslims, that’s not how this works, the bans exist because Islam is incompatible with the west.

If Islamophobia means not wanting Turkish state-funded extremist imams to radicalize a population over half a million, then count me in.


Denmark Prohibits Burqa and Niqab in Effort to Assimilate Muslim Immigrants

By Stefan M. Kløvning

Denmark, Immigration – In an effort to assimilate Muslim immigrants in Denmark, the center-right coalition voted 75 to 30 on Thursday in the Danish parliament to make full-face veils illegal in the Scandinavian welfare state, which more specifically targeted the Muslim niqab and burqa. The law will take effect after August 1.

The move has been criticized as unnecessary with reference to only 0.2% of Muslim women in Denmark wearing the traditional garments, and half of them being ethnic Danes. Another critique is in response to it being labeled a tradition oppressive to women in the Muslim culture. The assertion is that many of them choose themselves to wear the full-face veils because of their perceived sacredness the clothing has to the Muslim faith, and wouldn’t wear them if they didn’t want to. Pakistani immigrant Ayesha Haleem claims to be one of these women and exclaims that she’d rather leave the country than take the veil off.

The Danish People’s Party is an anti-immigration party which favored the legislation on the basis of it potentially being a threat to some central Western values such as freedom, equality, democracy, and fraternity. Its spokesman Martin Henriksen told Ritzau that ‘Some people use (the full-face veil) to promote an ideology which, if successful, would mean many others would lose their right to freedom. It’s a matter of balance.’ In essence, Henriksen’s position is that even though there are some women who wear the garment on their own accord, such argumentation against the legislation (as Haleem’s) neglects the women who do get forced to wear them. He does, however, say regarding the intent that he believes there to be ‘some’ and not ‘all’ that uses it to promote the ideology in that sense.

The Danish Justice Minister Søren Pape Poulson, who also supports the legislation, seems to give a better justification, asserting that ‘In terms of value, I see a discussion of what kind of society we should have with the roots and culture we have, that we don’t cover our face and eyes, we must be able to see each other and we must also be able to see each other’s facial expressions, it’s a value in Denmark.’ Amnesty International labeled the legislation a ‘discriminatory violation of women’s rights’ on the based on the argumentation of Haleem of not being able to choose themselves what they want to wear, but Poulson’s reasoning covers this a lot better than Henriksen’s. Though one agrees with Poulson or not, the idea is to set a standard for all Danish citizens, and he thinks that a basic such standard would be to be able to see each other, based on the values of the culture. If one disagrees with him setting the standard here, one may meditate on what could be the ultimate consequences of a nation being too flexible in terms of values. The fear from people and parties such as Tommy Robinson, Lauren Southern, Britain First, Danish People’s Party, etc., is often not based on ideas of ethnic or religious superiority, but that too much immigration from (especially) Muslim majority countries (without adequate assimilation) could incline the nations they immigrate to, such as England, Sweden, and Denmark, to become more like the countries they immigrated from, such as Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and other Middle-Eastern and North-African countries which, i.e. industrially and democratically speaking are inferior.

The legislation against full-face veils suggests a punishment of 1,000 Danish kroner ($156) for first-time violations and up to 10,000 ($1568) by the fourth violation. It allows for using garments to hide the face for a ‘recognizable purpose’ such as in cold weather, and to separate what does and what doesn’t have it, Poulsen suggested that police officers just had to use ‘common sense.’

Denmark isn’t the first country in Europe that has decided to ban burqas and niqabs, France was, as far back as 2011. A few months later, Belgium introduced a ban. This eventually became a trend followed by Austria, Bulgaria, the southern German state of Bavaria and the Netherlands. News outlet Quartz has also been critical to these countries, referring to the ‘minuscule’ quantity of Muslim women daring to wear them in the respective countries, i.e. 0.03% in Austria, 0.04% in France, and 0.05% in the Netherlands. In Austria, the differentiation between what’s a ‘recognizable purpose’ and what’s not goes something like this (see tweet) and can be expected to be something similar in Denmark.

 

Paris Knife Attack: ISIS terrorist shot by police

By Nikos Tsinakis

Casualty toll so far: 1 killed and multiple wounded with 2 in critical condition

French media named the attacker as Russian born Muslim and French Citizen Khamzat Asimov. The attack happened about 21:30 local time in the busy central Paris Opéra district.  Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said police were on the scene five minutes after an emergency call and the attacker was killed less than nine minutes later. Among the chaos, brave bystanders managed to fend off the knife attacker from chasing a wounded woman into a restaurant, thus greatly minimized the number of people that could potentially have been killed or maimed as well as buying precious time for the counter-terrorist police units to arrive.

BBC:

A knifeman has killed one person and wounded four in a suspected terror attack in central Paris, French officials say.

The attacker was then shot dead by police in the Opéra district. Witnesses say they heard him shout “Allah Akbar”.

So-called Islamic State (IS) later said one of its “soldiers” had carried out the attack on Saturday evening.

Judicial sources told French media the attacker was a man born in 1997 in the southern Russian republic of Chechnya.

The sources said his parents had been held for questioning.

Interior Minister Gérard Collomb said the victim of the attack was a 29-year-old man, but gave no further details.”

Regardless of the rapid response executed by the French police, the goal of the terrorist has been successfully accomplished. A bloodthirsty Jihadist rampaging through the streets of central Paris while stabbing passersby for nearly 10 minutes is no doubt another demoralizing strike in the EU heartland and a reminder to Parisians that the grave danger looming over their city ever since the November 2015 truck attacks has not yet dissipated.

skynews-paris-attack-map_4308347

One thing is clear: no matter how hard the Mainstream Media and the EU government attempts to shift the blame away from their own incompetence towards “religious extremism” and ISIS, it only provides further evidence to the eventual obliteration of their refugee-friendly narrative – Terrorist attacks absolutely increased in parallel to the number of third world migrants and “refugees” arrived in Europe. The self-professed liberal and French President Emmanuel Macron announced on the day of his inauguration last year that the key to combat terrorism is to work alongside middle eastern and African nations towards the goal of eliminating ISIS. His hypothesis, however, does not seem to be remotely accurate or relevant to the current situation in Europe, where thousands of returning Jihadis and terrorist cells have been running loose despite allegedly being on “watchlists”. This begets the questions; why aren’t European governments doing enough to protect their own citizens? How many more European lives must be sacrificed on the altar of multiculturalism and diversity?

FRANCE-ATTACK-PARIS

The Islamic State has been put on their back foot for years yet there seems to be no reduction in the frequency of terrorist attacks on European soil. The death toll of the terrorist attacks in France in the past three years now adds up to exceeding 230 people.

Although the terrorist has been confirmed to be a Russian born French citizen, it shouldn’t come as a shock to discover his ISIS connection due to his birthplace being the southern Russian republic of Chechnya, an area where Islamic jihadi groups have long been operating in. The 2013 Boston Marathon bombers also happened to come from the same Russian region.
