“To see extremist Islam as a ‘perversion’ of Islam misses an important point. The politically correct insistence that radical versions of Islam somehow pervert an essentially peaceful and tolerant faith forces policy-makers and legislators, church leaders, rabbis, interfaith workers and the public at large to leave to one side an important reality. Flatly, Islam in its original and classic forms has everything to do with today’s radicals and the violence they commit. The Qur’an is explicit in its hatred for pagans, Jews and Christians. It calls for the fighting of holy war (jihad) to conquer the non-Muslim world… Islam has been at war with Europe since the seventh century.” – Denis MacEoin, “No tolerance for extremism” – Gatestone Institute, June 16th, 2017.

“The couple, who will remain unnamed to protect the identity of the child, pleaded not guilty to procuring FGM, claiming in the trial that their daughter had suffered the injury as a result of falling onto a toy while not wearing a diaper…” – Kurt Zindulka, “Parents convicted in first female genital mutilation case in Ireland” – Breitbart, January 30th, 2020.

“Those of us who have fled gender apartheid dictatorships, where women risk their lives to protest the veil, know and have experienced what chastity laws mean… our feminist government chooses to prioritize collective religious rights over the human rights of children and women… As long as trendsetting journalists see gender apartheid as ‘culture’ …. oppression based on honor will continue.” – Maria Rashidi and Sara Mohammad, human rights activists, Dagens Samhälle, December 14th, 2019 – quoted by Judith Bergman in “Sweden: Hijab is look of the year” – Gatestone Institute, February 1st, 2020. (“Gender apartheid” ??? -JG).

“Now here’s the problem – not only did Islamic doctrine concern itself with the Non-Muslim, the treatment of the Non-Muslin was terrible. There were two treatments of the Non-Muslim – one is religious in that they went to hell, but the other is political, what happened to them in life today. So we need a special name for the non-Muslim, because non-Muslim is a neutral term, and yet the non-Muslim is not treated neutrally. They can be enslaved, tortured, raped, lied to, deceived, plotted against. These are not neutral things, these are political terms and they’re very harmful.” – Bill Warner, “Kafir with a capital K” – Political Islam, February 21st, 2018.

“It is true that hardened islamist terrorists, such as the Al-Qaeda & ISIS supporter Usman Khan who murdered two people at Fishmongers’ Hall [after pretending to have been ‘rehabilitated’], do misuse the principle of taqiyyah in order to further their cause. However, the charge that all Muslims are generally religiously obligated to lie, and do so routinely, is both dangerous and untrue… However true this may be, it is also irrelevant. After all, how is the infidel to know which Muslim is and isn’t ‘misusing the principle of taqiyyah’? “ – (How, indeed – JG) – Raymond Ibrahim, “Muslim deceit and the burden of proof” – American Thinker, January 17, 2020.

“Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, during a panel discussion at the National Conservatism conference in Rome on Tuesday, declared liberalism to be over and said that not a single Muslim immigrant lives in Hungary… While mentioning Europe’s growing Muslim population which has coincided with its rapidly declining Christian population, Orbán said: ‘According to the liberals, this is fine, because they don’t like Christian society,’ before noting that the suicidal choice was theirs to make, but that forcing Central Europeans to follow in their footsteps is completely unacceptable.” – Arthur Lyons, “Orbán: Not a single Muslim immigrant in Hungary, declares liberalism over” – Voice of Europe, February 6th, 2020.
