Recently, while decrying “Islamophobia,” Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb—one of the world’s most influential Muslims who so many Western leaders including Pope Francis trust and listen to—said: We do not hold the Christian religion, nor Christ [peace be upon him], nor Moses [peace be upon him] responsible for the terrible massacres of Muslims by believers of other religions. We do not label a… Continue reading Don’t Judge Islam by the Actions of a Few Muslims, Says Leading Cleric
Following the most recent series of brutal murders of innocent French men and women by Muslims, the French government has passed a new law to try and reduce the Muslim threat to public order and hence the French Republic. The new law requires that there shall be no intimidation of public servants, no online hate… Continue reading France tries to tame Islam, we wish it good luck with that
When the elderly Mohammed married Aisha she was merely six years old and consummated the marriage when she was only nine, he set up a cultural institution within Islam that continues down to the present day. Child marriage is always an older man marrying a young girl. I find it strange that the justice of… Continue reading Marriage, old men and young girls
Like many readers of JCM, I have been reading and listening with interest to the reaction to the slaying of Major General Qasem Soleimani. Qasem Soleimani was an Iranian major general in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and, from 1998 until his death, commander of its Quds Force, a division primarily responsible for extraterritorial… Continue reading A Religion of Peace! Really?
Recently, JCM published an article on the subject of violence, in which the teacher, whom I respect, asserted that the Christian approach was never to return violence with violence, for Christ did not in his life, even when he was going to unjustly arrested and convicted. I said to JCM’s Director that I would like… Continue reading Is violence ever justified? A deeper examination of the Biblical position
Pope Francis, being number 5 on the Forbes’ list of most powerful people only has the power to condemn and pray for the persecuted Christians as it seems. The Vatican is not doing well enough for the persecuted Christians despite being the most powerful religious entity of the world. A powerful state with strong diplomatic relations… Continue reading The Vatican and its diplomacy have no soft corner for persecuted Christians
Charlie Hebdo is a French satirical magazine whose staff were mostly murdered by jihadist gunmen after the magazine published a cartoon of Mohammed. The magazine now avoids making fun of anything to do with Islam and instead mocks those who oppose Islam, such as Éric Zemmour, the brave French journalist at Le Figaro who has… Continue reading Je ne suis plus Charlie Hebdo
The bigger picture that we see of the Islamic world today is brutal, violent and simply ferocious. Muslim keyboard ninjas residing in the West are found everywhere defending Islam as a peaceful religion and giving a totally different perspective of the Quran from what it actually says. They twist and turn the Quranic verses claiming… Continue reading Status of Non-Muslims in Islam
Why did Muhammad use the name of Jesus for his new religion? Why not create the religion without mentioning Jesus? Why, he knowingly acknowledged few of Jesus’ miracles when he himself could do none? The answer is quite clear: He wanted to use Jesus’ fame to make the Quran more credible. Jesus’ popularity could make… Continue reading Why did Muhammad use the name of Jesus for creating the religion of Islam?
Muslims issue a fatwa to make a religious declaration – much like a government issues a law or policy. What we have to remember is that most Muslim countries are Islamic states; meaning they don’t have the separation of church and state like most western countries do. Their religion dictates their government and the way… Continue reading Islamic Fatwa: A ridiculous ideology
