“What I did not tell my friend, as we sat watching the sunlight dance over the Bosphorus, was that the European Turks who were voting to change the Turkish Constitution, who were effectively choosing to establish a more fundamentalist, Islamist Turkey in place of the secular, Western democracy that has been in place since 1923, have no interest in the ‘freedoms’ that she spoke of. That they have them in Europe is meaningless: they don’t want them. They don’t want them in Turkey, where they come from; and they don’t want them in Europe, where they now live. Not for themselves. And not for anybody else.” – Abigail R. Esman, “How Erdogan’s victory might be Europe’s defeat” – Investigative Project on Terrorism, April 17th, 2017.
“Thanks to dishonest Muslim translators, immigration officials are rejecting asylum applications from Muslim converts to Christianity from Iran and Afghanistan during what one pastor characterized as ‘kangaroo court’ hearings. Rev. Gottfried Martens accused the ‘almost exclusively Muslim translators’ of deliberately mistranslating their responses to disqualify their applications.” – Raymond Ibrahim, “Muslim Persecution of Christians, January 2017” – Gatestone Institute, April 16th, 2017.
“While almost anything can provoke Muslims around the world to attack churches, there is a reason that the animus can reach a fever pitch during Easter: more than any other Christian holiday, Resurrection Sunday commemorates and celebrates three central Christian doctrines that Islam manifestly rejects: that Christ was crucified and died; that he was resurrected; and that by especial virtue of the latter, he is the Son of God.” – Raymond Ibrahim, “Why Easter brings out the worst in Islam” – FrontPage Magazine, April 17th, 2017.
“England recorded 5,700 cases of FGM in less than a year. France has jailed 100 people for FGM. An estimated 50,000 women in Germany have undergone FGM with a 30 percent boost due to the rise of Islamic migration in the last several years. In Sweden, it’s 38,000. And now, as American towns and cities are reshaped by Muslim migration, ‘there’ is now right here.” – Daniel Greenfield, “The screams of little girls in Little Palestine” – Sultan Knish, April 16th, 2017.
“…because of the nature of FGM, reliable statistics on the incidence of its practice are not available. However, based on discussions with members of the communities that are at risk, there is some evidence to indicate that FGM is practised in Ontario and across Canada. There is also evidence that suggests that in some cases, families from those communities send their daughters out of Canada to have the operation performed.” – The Ontario Human Rights Commission, quoted by Jerry Agar in “Female genital mutilation is not a Canadian value” – Toronto Sun, April 17th, 2017.
“In a landmark trial at the Paris Children’s Court, a 17-year-old Turkish jihadist, identified only as Yussuf K., was sentenced to seven years in prison for attacking Benjamin Amsellem, a Jewish teacher in Marseille, with a machete. Yussuf K. said he carried out the January 2016 attack ‘in the name of Allah and the Islamic State.’ He added that he chose his victim because ‘he was Jewish’… He was tried as a minor because he was 15 when he carried out the attack. The criminal trial of a minor on terror charges was the first of its kind in France, where some fifty children are currently being investigated for jihadist offenses.” – Soeren Kern, “A month of Islam and multiculturalism in France and Belgium: March 2017” – Gatestone Institute, April 18th, 2017.
