Nagla al-Imam –sharia expert, Christian convert from Islam--tortured in Egypt.

E-mail Print PDF

Nagla al-Imam, graduate of al- Azhar University, expert in sharia law, attorney and human rights activist left Islam for Christianity. In a stunning youtube video she and her children ask Christ to help and strengthen them as they are persecuted.  Her bruised face is the result of bashing by Egypt’s security forces.  She was besieged by the MUSLIM MOB.  As an apostate she becomes a  ‘legal non-person’  and hence loses many ‘privileges’ ie she may not be able to work or defend herself in court.   She has declared she will not flee but will remain in Egypt –according to the latest report she and her children are missing..
And of course there have been worldwide protests from the public, governments and church leaders at this horrendous abuse by the Muslim government and people of Egypt...didn’t hear them? –me either!

Nagla was a prominent lawyer, a sharia expert, fired for converting to Christianity.   She has openly challenged Islam’s sick apostasy laws from within Islam and she is being made to pay as Islam demands.  As has been noted before (articles on Copts this site), the government refused to allow her to change her status to Christianity on her ID card.  A public demonstration organised to complain about this gross injustice (note converts to Islam get an instant new ID) resulted in police beating and threatening demonstrators with the aid of the MUSLIM MOB.  “The young daughter of one Christian convert who broke her arm was denied medical attention”  (Ibrahim 2010).
Her brave stand immediately attracted attacks and ‘fatwas’ calling for her death.  The Egyptian media participated in such attacks.

“Ms. Al Imam was literally entrapped by a TV station ‘Al Mihwar’ with the pretext of inviting her for an interview. Upon arrival to the TV studio she was told the show she was to appear on was cancelled. She was then taken forcibly to a room where she was held against her will for hours inside the studio. She was assaulted, threatened and insulted by several people. She was able to escape, and went to her internet chat room telling the world what happened and said she will demand protection from the Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.”   (Darwish 2009)

A few years ago Nagla tried to pass a law banning polygamy in Egypt and  Al Azhar proclaimed her an infidel.   Islamists have been trying to undermine her for years including producing doctored videos slandering her.  (Ibrahim 2010)

A few weeks ago (~June) she was arrested and taken to a government building in Cairo where she was threatened and beaten by a top official.  She suffered  --

“a black eye, a bruised body and broken teeth.  Before releasing her, he said, "Stay in your house, till you are carried out to your grave," adding that, if she does not return to Islam, "people" will be dispatched to "take care of her."   (Ibrahim 2010)

Nagla and her two young children were trapped indoors –deserted by her Muslim family and attacked by the MUSLIM MOB (vigilante rule) which bangs on the doors and windows.  Electricity to the home has been cut off.

Finally, a top Muslim cleric, Salim Abdul Galil, appeared on an Al Azhar affiliated station proclaiming Nagla an "infidel," adding she must either return to Islam or spend the remainder of her life indoors.(Ibrahim 2010)

All 4 schools of sharia demand death for apostates  though some give a short time to ‘change your mind.’ Some attribute this more ‘moderate’ decree for Nagla (a female) of a beating followed by imprisonment in the home till she returns to Islam as due to the more moderate Hanafi school but Shafii law is also common in Egypt (making clitoridectomy obligatory, hence its massive practice in Egypt).   I think it’s more likely that this seemingly ‘moderate’ solution is simply because Nagla is a prominent human rights lawyer who has publicly left lovely Islam.   Had she been an unknown, I suspect the result would have been different. (see below for text and laws on apostasy)

'According to Islamic law, any Muslim who leaves Islam loses custody of their children. The children are to be placed in the custody of a Muslim relative. This is one of the points made in apostasy fatwas (rulings) issued by the Chief Scholar of the Royal Aal al-Bayt Institute, His Excellency Shaykh Sa‘id Hijjawi, during the time when he was Grand Mufti of Jordan (from 1992-2007).  (The Aal al-Bayt Institute was the sponsor of the Common Word letter to the Christian world.)'(Durie 10 July 2010)

Below is a translation of Nagla al-Imam’s statement following her detention and bashing by Egyptian security personnel eg an official referred to as Basha 'Sir'.

Al-Tarek TV broadcast the video posted to Youtube on July 8th, 2010. 
“Tarek TV ("Way TV") is named after its host, Nabil Bissada, who was imprisoned and tortured in Egypt for facilitating the way for Muslims to convert to Christianity, I Was a Prisoner explores the lack of human rights in Muslim countries.”(Ibrahim 2010).    Tarek TV have alerted the world that Nagla and her children are ‘missing.’
Have they been whisked to safety – or taken to torture and possibly death?   A Coptic friend feared the worst!

This is Nagla’s  story –
I was standing peacefully in front of the Cathedral. I was with my children. We were carrying the cross and a coffin.
This is our right! It is our right to believe either in the cross, in Christ, in salvation, or to believe in the death sentence. We are apostates. According to the law in this country, we are apostates. We are prepared to serve the punishment for apostasy. We have no problem with this. But the real problem is that for almost a year, I have been under house arrest inside my house, jailed inside my own house. There is no difference: [going from] one cell to another will make no difference. Also they aborted all my attempts to speak out or to speak about Christ. They aborted our rights to become Christians. They threatened us; they accused us;  they degraded us; and they did with us whatever they were able to. But was that all? [No] They have accused us with doubts and suspicions for which no one has made them accountable.
I parked my car in front of the Cathedral. They told me “We need you for few seconds.” I thought they were from the church. I was holding my children’s hands when two men called my name. I thought they were  from the church. They told me, “We want you for few moments, just a small stroll, you will be talking with Sir [Basha].” 
I anticipated what was going to happen. One of our brothers [a fellow Christian] was there and he saw what happened.  I told him to take the children to our church. 
I want to draw your attention to something. The state security offices, the place where they interrogate people, is in Madinat Nasr. It is a big building, newly built, and specializes in such matters in particular. I know this because I am a lawyer.
After waiting for four hours in an office, I asked, “What is the name of the colonel?” They said, “You will know in a moment.” I was anticipating everything which might happen. For four hours I waited in the office. I experienced worries, fear, anticipation, waiting and many other things.
Then 'Sir' came. He said, “Yes my lady, why are you making trouble for us? Don’t you want to be safe?” I said, “It is you who do not want to be safe. You have restrained me from traveling, and I am a Human Rights activist.” He said, “Yes.” Then he went to take hold of the cross [on a chain around Nagla's neck] and asked, “Who is this?”
This time my words were harsh. I told him, “Take your hands off the cross, for you don’t know its worth.” He said, “No, I know its worth.” He held the chain and tightened it around my neck. He was showing that he was threatening to cut the chain, or to hurt my neck, or do anything.
Then I answered him. I said, “If you touch me, I will react severely. If you are a real man, hit me.” He did not give me a chance to complete the sentence. Holding my hair, he bashed my face against the desk. He slapped my more than once, and punched me in the ribs, and on my arm. By this time I was bleeding from the side of my mouth.
I told him, “Proceed with your documentation, if you have any.” He said, “I don’t have any documentation. I am just telling you this.  This is just having fun. If you don't want to be safe, you will receive what you have not expected.”
I said, “What is it that I could not expect? Will you put me to jail? So many other converts are in jail. You will kill me? So many converts has been killed.” I told him am not afraid; “I am not afraid because I know where I will be going, but what about you, who do not know where will you be going.” [Here Nagla refers to a difference between Christian and Muslim beliefs: Christians have assurance of salvation, while Muslims are not sure of their eternal destiny. Cf Sura 4:9, where Muhammad says 'I do not know what will happen to me or to you.'] He was provoked and told me, “I am not going to hit you any more, all that I am going to do is that I will give way to some women. [The word "women" used here is a derogatory term for women in Arabic. This could refer to men with no manners, women hired to do the wrong thing, such as torturers, to female prison guards, or to female prisoners.] “You are a lady lawyer and you know very well what they can do to you. Do not leave your house! Until you go out on a trolley to your grave.”
When I went back [home] I couldn’t sleep. My ribs and my body were hurting, my neck and my shoulders... But my real hurt was not the [physical] pain.  My real hurt was that there was no real reason for them to do this.  I was simply a piece of flesh, an object of defamation and slander. I was always damaged goods [lit. ‘stained’].
There is no safety — human safety, worldly safety, — apart from the true safety I found with the Lord Jesus Christ.  [I am] without work; threatened to be deregistered; without an income; without family.  I have no one but enemies. Except that I do not regard them as enemies, but as agents of the evil one [Satan].
I felt this was God’s discipline: He was teaching me what it means to be humble; what it means that the Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace; what it means to focus my sight on Christ alone, and not to depend on human hands.  I have learned a lot this year.
The next day I did a medical report. I am not ready to forsake my rights.  I am keeping the name of this colonel for my self. I am an Egyptian citizen, like the apostle Paul who said “I am a Roman citizen.” I am an Egyptian citizen, and it is my right to follow the religion of my choice. I am a rational adult. I have harmed no one. This religion [Christianity] does not seek to promote terrorism and killing. On the contrary, it is the religion of peace and love.


Even those who claim to be still Muslim but ‘offend’ in some way (too secular, failing to adhere to Islamic dictates, daring to question or criticise) can find themselves accused of apostasy with death threats and attacks by the MUSLIM MOB--
Eg Sayed Mahmoud El Qemany, an intellectual granted the State Award for Social Sciences, on June 25th 2009.  He was accused of apostasy and death fatwas were issued against him.  He noted that “any citizen is allowed to kill me and be awarded by God in Paradise.” He noted that the Al-azhar Scholars Front, the Islamic Group, The Muslim Brotherhood,  the Salafi group, The Hisbah Sheikh Youssef Al Badri, Al Nas channel, and others issued death threats often via a variety of TV channels (eg Mohwar Channel,  Al Faraeen Channel, the channel "ON TV”)
.
“Sheiks of more than 5000 mosques on Friday prayers on July 24, 2009 declared the incitement to kill me, especially in my hometown, which led to the rampage against my family and relatives, and that could possibly evolve to some serious consequences in the coming weeks.”

Also “Sheikh Ali Gomaa, the former Chairman of the “State Religious Affairs Advisory Board”, issued a statement declaring my infidelity and calling for slaying me for "insulting the Prophet of Islam, the God of Islam” on July 24, 2009.”

He wrote:   “Due to the above, I call upon the conscience of all humanity in the free world to come to me and my children’s rescue by providing moral support and the condemnation and denunciation of the radical thinking with quick solutions to save us from the danger that is luring around us. This is a distress call to all bodies and individuals. A call to the consciences of every free individual in the world.  Signed: Sayed Mahmoud El Qemany- Researcher.”

How much do people who want freedom need to CRY from the Islamic world!  Sayed has in reality, intellectually left Islam he just doesn’t realise it yet or isn’t prepared to admit it! 
Isn’t it time we stopped pretending Islam is ‘nice’ or ‘tolerant’ or ‘peaceful.’   Islam is an evil ideology and if we don’t want the same situation here we need to stop importing Muslims and start telling the nasty truth about Islam before our human rights and freedoms disappear accommodating the ‘rights’ of Muslims and Islam!

Nonie Darwish notes “Very few people in the West know what is going on inside the Muslim world and what it portends for them. The fact is that through the dominant media, such as CNN, Americans are subjected to much of the same misinformation with regard to Islam that I grew up with inside the Muslim world. The result is that Americans are in the dark attempting to formulate their strategy of how to defend themselves against the threat of terror, domestic jihad and Sharia.” (Darwish 2009).  

Ditto for Australians! And of course we are called ignorant, racist, Islamophobe for seeking the real truth about this deadly ideology instead of falling for the lies from Muslims and their facilitators.   

Dawish continues – “In spite of the cover up, this is perhaps the first time in the history of Islam that Muslims finally have access to the truth about their own religion, thanks to the Internet and satellite dishes (invented by infidels). There are daily news reports of heart-broken Muslims who say they cannot believe what is written in Muslim scriptures and say that Muslims have been living under the greatest lie in human history. Others simply deny and say that it can’t be so. While Saudi Arabia is spending billions to Islamize the West, many Muslim prisoners of Islamic submission are dying or leaving the religion quietly.
The relatively few number of Muslims who dare to convert to Christianity do it in extreme secrecy. That is because the penalty for leaving Islam is death in all schools of Sharia, both Sunni and Shiite. Those who wrote Sharia centuries ago knew that keeping Muslims in total submission would be very difficult to maintain, and thus they established barbaric laws condemning Muslims to death for exercising their basic human rights to choose their own religion. Sharia never entrusted its enforcement only to the formal legal system. Islam promises heavenly rewards to individual Muslims who take the law into their own handsSharia also states that the killers of apostates and adulterers are NOT murderers and therefore are not to be punished. That is why, for Islam to achieve 100% compliance to Sharia enforcement, Muslim individuals are encouraged to take matters into their own hands.”


She notes that the end result is a chaotic society of fear and distrust where apostates and adulterers are killed by family members, neighbours or others.  Islamic tyranny exists in ALL Muslim countries.

“The ingenious Sharia uses vigilante street justice to bring about Islamic submission. That is why civil unrest and honor crimes go wherever Islam goes. The power of Islam comes from turning Muslim against Muslim -- with a reward in heaven.”

Nonie Darwish notes that many, including herself, in countries like America live in constant fear from ‘Islamists’ in our countries!  YES we know people HERE who live in fear of death from Muslims in Australia!

Isn’t it time Islam was STOPPED!   Why are our political parties promoting Islam and putting Muslims into positions of power?  If you CARE, please write to state and federal members of parliament expressing your views –this horror will only stop if WE demand that it stops!

Some text and laws for those interested in written evidence:
Mohammad was made victorious with terror (Bukhari Vol.4 Book 52 No. 220 and the Koran offers terror to others eg 8.12;  8.60;  3.151;  33.26-27;  59.2..).  Islam kills those who don’t want to join and those who want to leave.
Koranic  text (4.88, 4.89) threatens Muslims who have rejected their faith (unbelief/hypocrites) as distinct from non-believers/non-Muslims-Text tells us allah deliberately leads them to unbelief.

***Koran 4.88 (allah deliberately sends them to uunbelief)
Why should ye be divided into two parties about the Hypocrites? Allah hath upset them for their (evil) deeds. Would ye guide those whom Allah hath thrown out of the Way? For those whom Allah hath thrown out of the Way, never shalt thou find the Way.

***Koran 4.89 (kill them)
They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn back, seize them and slay/kill them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks;-

(Other koranic text continues the threat)

A clear demand to kill apostates in the hadith- examples from the most revered and authoritative Bukhari -
***Bukhari Volume 9, Book 83, Number 17:   Narrated 'Abdullah:
Allah's Apostle said, "The blood of a Muslim who confesses that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that I am His Apostle, cannot be shed except in three cases: In Qisas for murder, a married person who commits illegal sexual intercourse and the one who reverts from Islam (apostate) and leaves the Muslims."

He repeated this third permission in many different ways: -shortened versions eg
***Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 260:  .............the Prophet said, 'If somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him.' "

***Bukhari Volume 9, Book 84, Number 57: Narrated 'Ikrima: .........
I would have killed them according to the statement of Allah's Apostle, 'Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.'"

***Bukhari Volume 9, Book 84, Number 64:   Narrated 'Ali:   .........No doubt I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "During the last days there will appear some young foolish people who will say the best words but their faith will not go beyond their throats (i.e. they will have no faith) and will go out from (leave) their religion as an arrow goes out of the game. So, where-ever you find them, kill them, for whoever kills them shall have reward on the Day of Resurrection."

***Bukhari Volume 9, Book 89, Number 271:   Narrated Abu Musa: .........
"He embraced Islam and then reverted back to Judaism." Mu'adh said, "I will not sit down unless you kill him (as it is) the verdict of Allah and His Apostle

*** Bukhari Volume 9, Book 84, Number 58: Narrated Abu Burda: (long)
……….. Behold: There was a fettered man beside Abu Muisa. Mu'adh asked, "Who is this (man)?" Abu Muisa said, "He was a Jew and became a Muslim and then reverted back to Judaism." Then Abu Muisa requested Mu'adh to sit down but Mu'adh said, "I will not sit down till he has been killed. This is the judgment of Allah and His Apostle (for such cases) and repeated it thrice. Then Abu Musa ordered that the man be killed, and he was killed. Abu Musa added, "Then we discussed the night prayers and one of us said, 'I pray and sleep, and I hope that Allah will reward me for my sleep as well as for my prayers.'"

Also repeated in Bukhari Vol 5 Book 59 No. 632.

Other text tells of apostates being marched into hell fire..eg ***Bukhari Volume 8, Book 76, Number 587:

Mohammad kills apostates and the eight tribesmen who left Islam—Note the sheer sadism –if they were to be executed for murder or stealing it should have been done quickly—but they had left Islam!

***Bukhari Volume 9, Book 83, Number 37:     Narrated Abu Qilaba: (long, only relevant section quoted)...
 I said, "By Allah, Allah's Apostle never killed anyone except in one of the following three situations: (1) A person who killed somebody unjustly, was killed (in Qisas,) (2) a married person who committed illegal sexual intercourse and (3) a man who fought against Allah and His Apostle and deserted Islam and became an apostate." Then the people said, "Didn't Anas bin Malik narrate that Allah's Apostle cut off the hands of the thieves, branded their eyes and then, threw them in the sun?" I said, "I shall tell you the narration of Anas. Anas said: "Eight persons from the tribe of 'Ukl came to Allah's Apostle and gave the Pledge of allegiance for Islam (became Muslim). The climate of the place (Medina) did not suit them, so they became sick and complained about that to Allah's Apostle. He said (to them ), "Won't you go out with the shepherd of our camels and drink of the camels' milk and urine (as medicine)?" They said, "Yes." So they went out and drank the camels' milk and urine, and after they became healthy, they killed the shepherd of Allah's Apostle and took away all the camels. This news reached Allah's Apostle, so he sent (men) to follow their traces and they were captured and brought (to the Prophet). He then ordered to cut their hands and feet, and their eyes were branded with heated pieces of iron, and then he threw them in the sun till they died." I said, "What can be worse than what those people did? They deserted Islam, committed murder and theft." .....the text continues..

***Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 261
Eight men of the tribe of 'Ukil came to the Prophet and then they found the climate of Medina unsuitable for them. So, they said, "O Allah's Apostle! Provide us with some milk." Allah's Apostle said, "I recommend that you should join the herd of camels." So they went and drank the urine and the milk of the camels (as a medicine) till they became healthy and fat. Then they killed the shepherd and drove away the camels, and they became unbelievers after they were Muslims. When the Prophet was informed by a shouter for help, he sent some men in their pursuit, and before the sun rose high, they were brought, and he had their hands and feet cut off. Then he ordered for nails, which were heated and passed over their eyes, and they were left in the Harra (i.e. rocky land in Medina). They asked for water, and nobody provided them with water till they died. 

The story of the 8 tribesmen is often recounted (it’s important!!!) with additions such as not giving them water to drink,  not cauterizing their wounds and gouging their eyes eg  Bukhari-- -Vol 1, Book 4, No. 234;     Vol 5, Book 59, No. 505;     Vol 7, Book 71, No. 623;    Vol 8, Book 82, No. 794;      Vol 8, Book 82, No. 796;    Vol 8, Book 82, No. 797;   
Muslim hadiths--- Book 16, No. 4131;     Book 16, No. 4132;     Book 16, No. 4134, 4135, 4136, 4137.........

Their apostasy is always noted and sometimes also they ‘ fought against allah and his apostle’ although the men simply tried to run away!  Rejecting Islam is considered ‘fighting allah and his apostle and was intolerable to Mohammad, hence the SADISM!”

Laws saying KILL apostates!:
Reliance of the Traveller:  a classic manual of Islamic sacred law:  (Shafi’i)
No compensation must be paid for killing an apostate-(pages 595, 596) Note: compensation or expiation is only for killing someone unlawful to kill!

*Law  f1.3. (p 109).  Someone raised among Muslims who denies the obligatoriness of prayer , zakat, fasting Ramadan, the pilgrimage, or the unlawfulness of wine and adultery, or denies something else upon which there is scholarly consensus and which is necessarily known as being of the religion, thereby becomes an unbeliever (kafir) and is executed for his belief.

*Law O8.1  (p 595).  When a person has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes, he deserves to be killed.

*Laws (O8.2, 8.3) Ideally the caliph’s or his representatives should kill him but, if someone else kills him (there are no caliphs today!!)  the killer is disciplined (O: for arrogating the caliph’s rights , as this is one of his duties)!!

Other laws simply say the apostate must be killed- by anyone.  No retaliation allowed for killing an apostate!
*Law O8.4 (p 596)  There is no indemnity for killing an apostate (O:or any expiation, since it is killing someone who deserves to die)

*Law O5.4  (p 593).  There is no expiation for killing someone who has left Islam…… even when someone besides the caliph kills him.

*Law O4.17 (p 593)  There is no indemnity obligatory for killing a non-Muslim at war with muslims (harbi);  someone who has left Islam; someone sentenced to death by stoning.

*Law O1.2  (p 583) the following are NOT subject to retaliation-………..[2) A MUSLIM for KILLING a NON-MUSLIM!!!]
3)  a Jewish or Christian subject of the Islamic state for killing an apostate from Islam (killing an apostate is without consequences!)  
[4)  A FATHER or MOTHER (or their fathers or mothers) for KILLING THEIR OFFSPRING or OFFSPRING'S OFFSPRING!!!  (p 584)!!!!!—honour killing?]

*Law  e12.8 (p 87) …….unworthy includes non-Muslims at war with Muslims, apostates from Islam, convicted married adulterers, pigs, and biting dogs.

Killing apostates is practised everywhere there are Muslims including the west!
 “The punishment by death in the case of apostasy has been unanimously agreed upon by all four schools of Islamic jurisprudence” (AbdurRahman I Doi, ‘Sharia: the Islamic Law,’ London 1984) 

I also have copies of laws from the Hanafi school of law, (al-Hedaya)  eg it is lawful to kill an apostate without making any attempt to recover him from his apostasy.
And the Maliki school of law (al-Risala) –‘ He is allowed three days grace; if he fails to utilise the chance to repent, the execution takes place. This same also applies to women apostates.... The property of an apostate after his execution is to be shared by the Muslim community.

The whole world must stand AGAINST sharia –apostasy is only one of the evil laws sharia contains, there are many more!

Lest We Forget the Battle of Tours

History - Violent Jihad

Australians celebrate and revere Anzac Day on April 25th each year in remembrance of our brave soldiers who fought in two great world wars to secure our freedom. Every Australian identifies with the slogan “lest we forget” and in services held around the country people reflect on the battles and men who died to secure our freedom. Yet across the world in France, there is one remarkable battle which helped form the Europe we know today and allowed the development of civilization based on Judeo Christian principles. This one famous battle has become known as the battle of Tours and effectively stopped the Muslim advance into Europe. After the death of Mohammed in 632AD, Muslim armies exploded out of the Arabian peninsula to conquer much of the Middle East, expanding across north Africa. From there they crossed into Spain in 711AD and eventually controlled much of al-Andalus by 715AD. It was the victory at Tours by Charles Martel that stemmed the tide and eventually the Muslim marauders were expelled from Spain in 1492 when the last outpost at Granada fell to King Ferdinand of Spain.

Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was born, lived, fought and won battles against religious and social oppression in the 17th century Bharat or India. He was a shining star in the Indian firmament and is renowned as a champion of the downtrodden and depressed masses. He was and continues to be an icon for the classes and masses alike and is seen as a rallying point for peasants oppressed by foreign rulers, Pathans and Moghuls alike. Sexually exploited women found in Shivaji Raje a protector, a benefactor and flocked to his Hindavi Swaraj to find solace and feel liberated under his saffron flag.

Perhaps some readers might be interested to know that January 28 is considered a feast day among Catholics – actually 2 feast days are celebrated on the same day – one is of ST Thomas Aquinas, the great medieval theologian and philosopher who adapted Aristotle to the western Judeo-Christian worldview. . It is also the feast day of a lesser known person – St Peter Nolasco, the great ransomer of captives from the Muslims.

Barbary Corsair
Somalian Islamic Pirates & Lessons from History
 
The dramatic rescue of the American cargo-ship captain Richard Phillips from the hands of Somalian Islamic pirates by the U.S. Navy—killing three pirates, holding him hostage at gun-point, through precision-targeting—warrants a review of the U.S. struggle with piracy and hostage-taking in North Africa, which ended two centuries ago.

Raiding trade-caravans and hostage-taking for extracting ransom in Islam was started by Prophet Muhammad. Having become powerful and secure after his relocation to Medina from Mecca in 622, Muhammad initiated Jihad or holy war in the form of raids of trade-caravans for earning livelihood for his community. In the first successful raid of a Meccan caravan at Nakhla in December 623, his brigands killed one of the attendants, took two of them captive, and acquired the caravan as “sacred” booty. The captives were ransomed to generate further revenue. Muhammad, later on, expanded this mode of Jihad to raiding non-Muslim communities around Arabia—for capturing their homes, properties and livestock, capturing their women and children as slaves often for ransoming and selling, and imposing extortional taxes—which sometimes involved mass-slaughter of the attacked victims.

Battle of Broken Hill Logo
 
The First Islamic Terrorist Attack on Australian Soil
 
On January 1, 1915 two Broken Hill men, both former camel drivers, armed themselves with rifles, an homemade flag bearing Islamic insignia and a large supply of ammunition and launched a surprise attack on the Picnic Train about 3 kilometres outside Broken Hill.

The train carried about 1200 Broken Hill residents to Silverton where a picnic to celebrate the new year was to take place.

The two Muslim men, Gool Mohamed originally a Pashtun tribesman from Afghanistan and Mullah Abdullah from what is known today as Pakistan, decided to wage jihad against Australian infidels after Australia and the Ottoman Empire officially joined the opposite sides in the WWI.

History - Tolerance Myths

Jihad Galore and the Toledo Whore

Battle of Higueruela

Alhambra - GazelleHow often in conversation with a Muslim, do they quote Spain as the crowning achievement of Islam, where Muslims, Jews and Christians lived in harmony for about 800 years?

And when you mention the killings and massacres, you are told that the Spanish Inquisition was much worse.
This is a misconception, since the Inquisition in Spain was responsible for only between 4,000 and 5,000 lives. [1]

Yet in 1066AD, in a single day, muslims murdered over 4,000 Jews because Vizier Joseph ibn Naghrela had risen to a position greater than them, and of course, this upset the Muslim sensitivities. [2]

Decisive Victory for the West

At this time of year, it is timely to remember one of the greatest victories of the west against the Islamic world. On the 7th October in 1571, Don Juan and the Holy League, led by Admiral Doria, defeated the larger Ottoman fleet in the Battle of Lepanto, saving Europe from the Turks and militant Islam. The Holy League was a coalition of different armies - of the Republic of Venice, the Papacy (under Pope Pius V), Spain (including Naples, Sicily and Sardinia), the Republic of Genoa, the Duchy of Savoy, the Knights Hospitaller and some others.

Jerusalem - Coat of ArmsWhy do Muslims insist that Jerusalem is their Holy City?
When Mohamed and his faithful followers moved from Mecca to Medina, they found themselves among three Jewish tribes/clans (BANU-L-NADIR, BANU KAINUKA and BANU KURAIZA)  which settled there some time after their expulsion from their homeland and also living there were  two Arab, pagan tribes.
