Country of Concern: Turkey Suppressing Christian Worship

By Gary Lane

On April 18, 2007, three Christians were bound to their chairs, tortured, and stabbed repeatedly at a Bible print shop in Malatya — their throats slit.

Five years have now passed since the Malatya murders, an incident that was perhaps the most tragic and brutal murder of Christians in modern-day Turkey.

Stakelbeck on Terror: Islam’s War on the Jews

06 March, 2012 – On this week’s edition of the Stakelbeck on Terror Show, we examine the roots of the Islamic world’s animosity toward the Jewish people.

Watch as author Andrew Bostom discusses the history of Muslim anti-Semitism and shows how Islam’s core texts promote these beliefs, which have been made official state policy by the Iranian regime today.

Plus, we take a closer look at the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood’s “spiritual leader” Yusuf al-Qaradawi. Also, learn more about a recent Pennsylvania court ruling that some have compared to Islamic sharia law.

Iran trying to build nuclear missiles capable of hitting London, Cameron warns MPs

By Jason Groves on 7th March 2012

Iran is developing nuclear missiles capable of hitting London, David Cameron warned yesterday.

In a chilling echo of the build-up to the war against Iraq, the Prime Minister suggested that the country’s drive to develop the bomb was potentially a direct threat to the UK.

His comments appeared to move Britain a step closer to war against the hardline Islamic regime.

About 7 in 10 Egyptians surveyed by Gallup in December 2011 oppose U.S. economic aid to Egypt, and a similar percentage opposes the U.S. sending direct aid to civil society groups. This rebuke of U.S. financial support may be a challenge for Egypt’s newly elected parliament and its future president as the government attempts to bolster the nation’s financial stability.

Edge of Terrorism

Al-Qaeda’s Strength Lies in its Ideology, not its Leaders

Walid Phares – February 6th 2012

Ten years have slipped by since Osama bin Laden’s jihadists massacred thousands of men, women and children in the northeastern United States, prompting the start of what Americans came to know as the War on Terror. The current administration, however, insists on more benign terminology, choosing for political reasons to describe the conflict as an “overseas contingency operation,” and a “war against al Qaeda.” But are we making progress in this conflict, whatever the name? Gaining an objective assessment begins with asking the right questions.

Now it’s $11 Billion for the Muslim Brotherhood? Only in America

February 12, 2012 – by David P. Goldman

Now that America-hating Islamists control three-quarters of Egypt’s parliament and the military government has rejected American protests at the prosecution of U.S. citizens for supporting democracy, Egypt is asking for $11 billion in Western aid. That has to be the least popular idea to float down the Potomac in a long time. Nonetheless, the Obama administration and its supporters in the Punditeska doubtless will ask American taxpayers to ante up a large part of the $11 billion handout, in the interest of  “promoting Egyptian democracy.” Only in America do we feed the mouth that bites us. CPI Financial News reported on Sunday:

Mumtaz El Saeed, Egypt’s Finance Minister, says the country needs $11 billion to help it get through the next fiscal year, as well as help with economic reforms, according to a report in Al Ahram, a local newspaper.

Walid Phares on Voice of Russia Radio: Trial of Americans in Egypt

Walid Phares comments on pending trial of US citizens for funding NGOs in Egypt

19 Americans to face trial on NGO funding

Sam LaHood, the son of U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood is among 43 people charged in Egypt after a probe into a foreign funding of non-governmental organizations. The inquiry into the NGOs whose stated aim is to promote democracy has added the strains between the U.S. and Egypt and jeopardized American financial aid to the Egyptian military, a close ally. The U.S. State Department said yesterday that it wants Egypt’s government to clarify reports that 19 Americans are among 43 people to be prosecuted. The U.S. has responded by saying that 1.5 billion dollars in annual aid from the U.S. sent to Egypt could be in jeopardy if the situation is not resolved.

In an interview on FOX News on New Year’s Eve, Professor Walid Phares, author of “The Coming Revolution: Struggle for Freedom in the Middle East,” released his 2012 projections: Iranian and Syrian regimes will connect more closely and link to Hezbollah. In Egypt, Tunisia, and Libya the Muslim Brotherhood will rise. Al Qaeda’s leaders have been hit in 2011, but in 2012 the organization will mutate in Arabia, Yemen, Iraq, Somalia, Africa and beyond. In Afghanistan the Taliban will have more influence, and in Pakistan, the Taliban and core military will weaken the civilian Government.

The Muslim Brotherhood wants power transferred from the military council into its own hands to use it to establish an Islamist state, Phares said.

The significance cannot be ignored because is not only the largest Arab nation but also Israel’s main partner in the peace process in the Middle East, Phares said.

“In the region, all of that could change,” Phares said. “The peace process will be impacted, our alliance with the Egyptian government and military can change, and the Muslim Brotherhood are not going to be only in Egypt, they are going to be across the region.”

In Libya, where the transitional government recently announced that Shariah, or Islamic religious law, will be instituted, the young will be educated in madrasas, Islamic schools, Phares warned. A jihadist movement will be built up from those youths, he said.

“We’re too late. We tried to drive from behind, maneuver from behind, and now the results are dramatic,” he said.

Iranian regime plays chess, we play checkers

October 19, 2011 | By Kenneth Timmerman

We are so unprepared to defeat Iran’s clerical rulers and their Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution (IRGC) hand-maidens. Every time we think we’ve caught them red-handed, as with the latest terror plot in Washington, D.C., they invent a new way to wriggle out of it.

Their latest gambit, which I’ve been expecting from the get-go, is to offer up the IRGC intermediary in the plot, claiming he was an infiltrator from the MEK, the Marxist Islamist group that was once part of the Khomeinist regime, but had a falling out with them over power-sharing 30 years ago.

Iran’s Global Strategic Goal is Rationally MAD

Walid Phares – October 19th 2011

My first book, The Iranian Islamic Revolution, published way back in 1986, dealt with the historicity of the 1979 Khomeinist Revolution in Iran. In it, I exposed the Khomeinist regime’s long-term ambitions and revisionist account of events that led to the Shah’s overthrow and Ayatollah Khomeini’s ascent to power in the alleged Islamic “Republic” of Iran. From my observatory in Beirut where Hezbollah and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard (IRG) were growing into a force to be reckoned with in the region and beyond, I absorbed and digested the thinking and logic of Tehran’s strategists. Boiled down, that strategy involved sending as many mixed signals in as many directions as possible so as to confuse opposing forces and make them tentative. This would allow the Khomeinists to pursue their global ambitions with minimal opposition.

Egypten: Krystalnatten i Kairo

Dhimmier må ikke istandsætte deres vantro helligdomme. Deres bygninger skal forfalde eller overtages af muslimer, siger koranen. Derfor bliver kirker i Egypten brændt af. Vantro og muslimer er heller ikke lige for loven. Hvad havde de tænkt sig, disse skøre koptere? Demokrati for vantro, kvinder uden tørklæde og andet udskud? Ret til fredelige demonstrationer? Ikke tale om.

Egyptisk stats-tv omtalte da også de demonstrerende som kristne hunde og opfordrede muslimer til at gå på gaden og foranstalte angreb, fortæller The New Yorker. Stats-tv spredte desuden falsk information. Ingen egyptiske soldater omkom. Men stats-tv hævdede, at der var dræbte soldater, siger Foreign Policy. Resultatet af militærjuntaens og de muslimske angreb var hele 40 døde demonstranter, skriver Walid Phares og mere end 300 sårede. Flere hundrede er meldt savnet. Så kan de lære det:

Egypt’s Spring becomes deadly for Coptic Christians

October 10, 2011 by Walid Phares

The credibility of the Arab Spring took a bloody hit on Sunday, October 9, when Egyptian Army forces shot dead more than thirty Christian Copts and wounded scores of them. In addition, the action by the Army was paralleled by armed men, described as Salafi Jihadists by Coptic sources, seen also shooting and hitting demonstrators with knives. At a few weeks from the legislative elections in Egypt, this violence impacts the debate about the Spring of Egypt but also challenges US and European policies towards the current and perhaps the forthcoming Government. Can the West support – and fund – a regime that kills members of the weakest community in Egypt, months after the fall of Mubarak?

International news agencies, including AP, were late in reporting the real casualties, as Coptic sources have identified more than 30 bodies seen on the streets at the time this article was filed (forty by the latest unconfirmed account). Hundreds of demonstrators who were protesting against the attacks on Christian Churches in the south of the country were also wounded and dozens were taken to hospital.

Egypt: Destroying Churches, One at a Time

by Raymond Ibrahim – October 10, 2011

What clearer sign that Egypt is turning rabidly Islamist than the fact that hardly a few weeks go by without a church being destroyed, or without protesting Christians being attacked and slaughtered by the military?

Logo Middle East Forum Banner

The latest chaos in Egypt—where the military opened fire on unarmed Christians and repeatedly ran armored vehicles over them, killing dozens—originates in Edfu, a onetime tourist destination renowned for its pharaonic antiquities, but now known as the latest region to see a church destroyed by a Muslim mob.

This church attack is itself eye-opening as to the situation in Egypt. To sum, St. George Coptic church, built nearly a century ago, was so dilapidated that the local council and governor of Aswan approved renovating it, and signed off on the design.

The Egyptian Military’s Crimes Against Humanity

by Raymond Ibrahim – October 11, 2011

Sunday, the Egyptian military opened fire on thousands of Christians protesting in Maspero, Cairo. In the words of one Christian eyewitness, armored vehicles “came at great speed and drove into the crowds, going backwards and forwards, mowing people under their wheels. The most horrible scene was when one of the vehicles ran over a Copt’s [Christian’s] head, causing his brain to explode and blood was all over the place. We got a clear message today that we are no first class citizens.”

Various numbers of casualties have been given; AINA asserts that at least 35 Christians were massacred, many beyond recognition, and over 300 wounded; hundreds are still missing. Graphic pictures of some of the slain can be seen here.

What is happening in Egypt to the Copts is the Kristallnacht of our times

Whatever the origins of the West’s unwillingness to recognise the existence of religion as a causal agent of conflict, this is a naivety which we can no longer afford to possess.

by George Igler on 11 October 2011

Some years ago in Dover I fell into conversation with an elderly man on a bus. He expressed an admiration for our nation whose depth I found perplexing.

He said this was due to the “restraint” Britons had shown when reacting to 7/7, an attack which had then only recently taken place.

He was genuinely amazed. Had the religious minority in his own country perpetrated such an act, he told me, the churches that were regularly set ablaze there, would be being torched with their congregations still inside.

Al Awlaki is gone but his Jihadists are multiplying

Walid Phares – September 30, 2011

Logo Family Security MattersImam Anwar al Awlaki held two important positions in the cobweb of international Jihadi terror. First, he was one of the emerging younger leaders of al Qaeda after the killing of Osama Bin Laden. Out of Yemen, from which his family originates, he had built a network of recruits capable of performing missions in the Arabian Peninsula, but also communicating with the Shabab of Somalia and many cells inside the West. His reach in recruitment was as far as Jihadists have been indoctrinated. The Nigerian Abdelmutalib, known as the Christmas day bomber in the US, was also connected to the Yemeni-based cleric. In a sense, al Awlaki was one of the most effective al Qaeda international officers. His loss will undoubtedly be felt –at least for a while – within the ranks of the network.

By Walid Phares – 09 Sep 2011

Walid Phares Photo SmallA decade after the jihadi strikes against America’s military and financial centers at the hands of al-Qaida, the question remains: Have we won the war?

In the ongoing, debate, we see two camps. One stating that we were defeating the enemy until Washington changed direction three years ago, and another boasting that America was losing the war until three years ago when a change of direction brought victory in sight.

Some really believed that the years following the attacks have brought the free world and democracy to an inch from victory. Others among us believe that thanks to today’s policies we are finally better than ever before.

Post-9/11’s unspoken truth

Victor Davis Hanson / Sept. 9, 2011

Why did radical Islamic terrorists kill almost 3,000 Americans a decade ago? Few still believe the old myth that prior U.S. foreign policy or support for Israel logically earned us Osama bin Laden’s wrath. After all, the U.S. throughout the 1990s had saved Islamic peoples from Bosnia and Kosovo to Somalia and Kuwait. Russia and China, in contrast, had oppressed or killed tens of thousands of their own Muslims without much fear of provoking al-Qaida.

Moreover, thousands of Arabs have been killed recently, but by their own Libyan and Syrian governments, not Israeli Defense Forces. Al Qaida still issues death threats to Americans even though its original pretexts for going to war – such as U.S. troops stationed in Saudi Arabia – were long ago irrelevant.

Thank You, America, For the Golden Age of Islam

Diana West | September 8, 2011

It is something to have gone 10 years without an Islamic attack of similarly gigantic proportions to those of Sept. 11, 2001, but it is not enough. That’s because the decade we look back on is marked by a specifically Islamic brand of security from jihad. It was a security bought by the Bush and Obama administrations’ policies of appeasement based in apology for, and irrational denial of, Islam’s war doctrine, its anti-liberty laws and its non-Western customs. As a result of this policy of appeasement — submission — we now stand poised on the brink of a golden age.

Tragically for freedom of speech, conscience and equality before the law, however, it is an Islamic golden age. It’s not just the post-9/11 rush into Western society of Islamic tenets and traditions on everything from law to finance to diet that has heralded this golden age, although that’s part of it. More important is the fact that our central institutions have actively primed themselves for it, having absorbed and implemented the central codes of Islam in the years since the 9/11 attacks, exactly as the jihadists hoped and schemed.

My grandparents were musicians, refugees from the Nazis. They fled to Paris from their native Leipzig in 1933. From my grandfather’s memoirs:

Arabisk oprør: Hvor blev islamisterne af?

September 8, 2011 – af Brian Esbensen

Vesten må revurdere sin forståelse af Mellemøstens islamister. Årtiers alliancer med diktatoriske regimer blev undskyldt med frygten for, at religiøse fundamentalister skulle komme til magten. Men hvor blev de af, de frygtede islamister, nu hvor regimerne falder?

Edward Said døde i 2003, Fred Halliday døde sidste år. Said havde en overgang en vis betydning på venstrefløjen, men Saids teorier har ikke vist sig bæredygtige. Hvad Palæstina angår, har der ikke været afholdt valg siden januar 2006. Næppe hvad de fleste vil kalde en demokratisk udvikling. Mere HER i det røde Ræson.

Assessing Qaddafi

Libya’s long decline will take years to ameliorate.

Daniel Pipes – August 30, 2011

On September 1, Mu’ammar al-Qadhdhafi (the proper transliteration of his name) would have been ruler of Libya for exactly 42 years, making him the world’s longest-ruling non-royal head of state. As he leaves the scene, his wretched reign deserves an appraisal.

Qaddafi took power at the age of 27 in the waning days of Gamal Abdel Nasser, the immensely influential pan-Arab leader of Egypt, and saw himself as Nasser’s acolyte but with a greater ambition: Whereas Nasser dreamed of a single Arab nation stretching from the Atlantic to the Persian Gulf as an end in itself, Qaddafi saw Arab unity as the first step to Muslim unity. Although Qaddafi failed to achieve any sort of unity, and his “Third International Theory” detailed in the 1975 Green Book proved a total bust, he did have an early and marked impact on two major developments.

Post Qaddafi: Insurgency and Jihad versus Democracy

Dr. Walid Phares – August 28, 2011

By seizing most of Tripoli and fighting what’s left of the pockets of resistance of Qaddafi forces, Libyan rebels have now almost dislodged the old regime and are expected to begin building their own government.

The most pressing question within the international community and in Washington is about the immediate to medium-term future of the country. Will the Transitional National Council swiftly install its bureaucracies in Tripoli and across the country? Will Qaddafi’s supporters accept the new rule or will they become the new rebels? And most importantly, are the current rebels united in their vision for a new Libya?

Uriasposten om Danmarks Radio:

Et klart mønster tegner sig. Konservative medier får etiketten ‘højreorienteret’, hvorimod venstreorienterede får ‘uafhængig’, ‘velanset’ eller ‘troværdig’.
