Germany: Female imam who preaches gender equality needs 16 guards to protect her


Imam Seyran Ateş opened the Ibn Rushd-Goethe mosque in Berlin last year; at that mosque, “men and women pray in the same space. Burqas and niqabs are strongly discouraged, headscarves are optional, and women often lead in prayer. LGBT Muslims are welcome and can get even get married at the mosque.”

Because of all that, woe be onto her. She has not been welcomed by the mainstream Islamic groups in Berlin. Instead, she is isolated and needs 16 guards constantly to protect her. All the while, her coreligionists run around screaming “Islamophobia” at any criticism of Islam:

Religious authorities in Turkey and at the Al-Azhar university in Cairo have excoriated her, and virtually every day brings new threats of rape, or murder, or both.

“With her liberal religious interpretations of the Qur’an and the Hadith, Ateş unleashed the anger of millions of Muslims.” Yes, millions, because traditional and normative Islam is supremacist and sanctions jihad.

“16 Guards Are Needed to Protect a German Imam Who Fights for Gender Equality”, by Terry Firma, Patheos (thanks to The Religion of Peace), May 15, 2018:

Berlin-based Imam Seyran Ateş, 55, has had to get used to the hate mail and the death threats.

She hardly cut a popular figure among Germany’s Muslim population before 2017; as a lawyer, she used to represent victims of domestic abuse and other violence perpetrated by her clients’ conservative-Muslim husbands and brothers. Ateş has a scar on her neck from where a would-be murderer’s bullet hit her years ago.

Then, last year, the Istanbul-born feminist really painted a bull’s-eye on herself when she started the Ibn Rushd-Goethe mosque in the German capital. It’s a place of worship where men and women pray in the same space. Burqas and niqabs are strongly discouraged, headscarves are optional, and women often lead in prayer. LGBT Muslims are welcome and can get even get married at the mosque.

The Dutch daily Trouw, which published an interview with Ateş on Friday, reports that she has a security detail of 16 guards. Everywhere she goes, her armed protectors keep an eye on her, scanning the surroundings for Islamist assassins.

With her liberal religious interpretations of the Qur’an and the Hadith, Ateş unleashed the anger of “millions of Muslims,” according to Trouw. Religious authorities in Turkey and at the Al-Azhar university in Cairo have excoriated her, and virtually every day brings new threats of rape, or murder, or both — often from within the free, secular country where Ateş has lived since she was six…..

Paris: Muslim screams “Allahu akbar” and “you kill children” outside Jewish school, is taken to psychiatric institution


Most will assume that this man was enraged over putative Israeli atrocities against Gazans; however, it is actually a deeply ingrained attitude. The Qur’an depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13). They are disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55); being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44); giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87); wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109); feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120); being arrogant about their being Allah’s beloved people (5:18); devouring people’s wealth by subterfuge (4:161); slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46); killing the prophets (2:61); being merciless and heartless (2:74); never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100); being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79); being cowardly (59:13-14); being miserly (4:53); being transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166); and more. They are under Allah’s curse (9:30), and Muslims should wage war against them and subjugate them under Islamic hegemony (9:29).

“France: Muslim man arrested for insults outside Jewish school,” JTA, May 17, 2018 (thanks to David):

A man shouted about Allah outside a Paris-region Jewish school and accused the people inside of killing children.

The man was arrested and placed in a psychiatric institution after the incident on Wednesday outside the Bet Hillel Jewish school in the northwestern Paris suburb of Levallois Perret, according to the National Bureau for Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism, or BNVCA.

The man shouted “you kill children” at the Jewish school after praying in Arabic and shouting several times “Allah hu akbar” – Arabic for Allah is the greatest, a witness who filmed a part of the incident told BNVCA. The witness called the police, who arrested the man and found a bottle containing an alcoholic beverage.

Police took him to a psychiatric institution after determining he wasn’t in command of all his faculties, the report said….

Sudan: Woman lashed 75 times for marrying without her father’s consent


And another hadith has Aisha recounting that Muhammad said: “Whichever woman married without the permission of her wali her marriage is invalid, her marriage is invalid, her marriage is invalid. If he entered into her, then the mahr [bride price] is for her in lieu of what he enjoyed from her private part. If they disagree, then the sultan is the wali for one who has no wali.”

“Any woman who gets married without the permission of her wali, her marriage is invalid, her marriage is invalid, her marriage is invalid. If her husband has consummated the marriage, then the mahr belongs to her in return for that. If she does not have a wali then the (Muslim) ruler is the wali of anyone who does not have a wali.” (Jami al-Tirmidhi 1102)

“Sudanese woman flogged for marrying without father’s consent,” AFP, May 16, 2018 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Sudanese police lashed a woman 75 times on Tuesday after a court found her guilty of marrying a man without her father’s consent, her lawyer and rights activists said.

The woman, a native of the war-torn Darfur region, was flogged at a police station in Omdurman, the twin city of Khartoum, after having served a six-month prison sentence.

The punishment was meted out less than a week after another Sudanese court condemned a teenager to death for killing her husband who had allegedly raped her.

“She completed her six months in jail and today she was flogged 75 times” as ordered by the court, lawyer Azza Mohamed Ahmed told AFP.

Ahmed said her client was put on trial after the father refused to approve her marriage to a man of her own choice.

“She and the man then got married and lived together for a year,” the lawyer said, adding that the couple now have a two-month-old baby.

“Her family then filed a case against her, accusing her of living with a man illegitimately.”

Ahmed said the court found her client guilty of marrying without her father’s consent as required under the Muslim country’s law.

Her husband was sentenced to two years in prison….

Hamas top dog admits Gaza protesters not “innocent civilians”: “If 62 people were martyred, 50 of them were Hamas”


“In the last rounds of confrontations, if 62 people were martyred, 50 of them were Hamas.”

Will the establishment media continue to ignore this and portray Israel as slaughtering innocent and peaceful protesters? Nothing else is more certain.

“Hamas official: 50 of the 62 Gazans killed in border violence were our members,” by Judah Ari Gross, Times of Israel, May 16, 2018:

A Hamas official on Wednesday acknowledged that 50 of the 62 Palestinians reported killed during Gaza border riots on Monday and Tuesday were members of the Islamist terrorist group, bringing the total number of known members of terror groups among the fatalities up to 53.

“In the last rounds of confrontations, if 62 people were martyred, 50 of them were Hamas,” said Hamas official Salah Bardawil in an interview with the Palestinian Baladna news outlet.

The Iran-backed Palestinian Islamic Jihad had said on Tuesday that three members of its Saraya al-Quds military wing were killed by Israeli forces in Khan Younis.

The Israeli military shared a portion of Bardawil’s interview with an Arabic news outlet, accompanied by English captions.

“This proves what so many have tried to ignore: Hamas is behind these riots, and the branding of the riots as ‘peaceful protests’ could not be further from the truth,” said IDF spokesperson Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus.

According to the Hamas-run Gaza health ministry, 62 people in total were killed during border clashes on Monday and Tuesday.

Israel has not put out its own official death toll, but officials have questioned the accuracy of the Hamas-provided figure….
