Row over Muslim scholar's invitation to preach at Anglican service
An invitation to a distinguished Muslim scholar to preach at a eucharist service in an Oxford church on Sunday has triggered complaints from traditionalists.
Monawar Hussain, who was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s birthday honours last year for services to interfaith relations and the community, will deliver a sermon at the University Church of St Mary the Virgin, following a request from Oxford University’s vice-chancellor, Louise Richardson.
The move has been denounced by Archbishop Cranmer, a conservative Anglican blog authored by Adrian Hilton. He said he failed to understand how an imam delivering a sermon at a eucharist service would respect “a sacred act of divine worship which is supposed to be conducted according to the rites and formularies of the Church of England”.

In Plain Sight: MEND, CAGE, and So-Called “Non-Violent Extremism” by Lottie Moore
The organisation MEND, despite its human rights front is a divisive organisation. The organisations founder and CEO, Sufyan Ismail, instead of working to waylay tensions and divisions he has been consistently exaggerating the threat of religious hate crimes towards Muslims, which has had the effect of exacerbating the fears many in our communities are living with. In turn this may play into the hands of violent extremists by allowing to recruit and radicalise vulnerable members of our communities who are made to feel increasingly isolated and aggrieved by this scare-mongering message. For example Mr Ismail has claimed that British society “hates us” and that British law has specifically allowed violence against Muslims while protecting other groups; “It’s not a crime to use violent or threatening words or behaviour [against Muslims],” he said. “It’s perfectly OK under UK law to hate Islam and Muslims, it’s not a problem…if you’re Muslim, [the law says] you can take liberties big time, that’s why women are getting their hijabs ripped off.” The organisation’s key narrative then is that the government does not support Muslims and that it is purposefully downplaying and ignoring Islamophobia. This  ‘us’ versus ‘them’ narrative is scarily similar to the narrative used by ISIS, that the West is in a conspiracy against Islam.

One Map That Explains the Dangerous Saudi-Iranian Conflict
What the map shows is that, due to a peculiar correlation of religious history and anaerobic decomposition of plankton, almost all the Persian Gulf’s fossil fuels are located underneath Shiites. This is true even in Sunni Saudi Arabia, where the major oil fields are in the Eastern Province, which has a majority Shiite population.

As a result, one of the Saudi royal family’s deepest fears is that one day Saudi Shiites will secede, with their oil, and ally with Shiite Iran.

This fear has only grown since the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq overturned Saddam Hussein’s minority Sunni regime, and empowered the pro-Iranian Shiite majority.

Sarah was repeatedly raped, twice forced into marriage and had EIGHT abortions
During this relentless hunt, there was an agonising near miss. Jerry's sons and Sarah were in the supermarket when she saw her mother, who was looking for her in the area.
Instinctively, Sarah ran over and hugged her mother. 'Mum asked me who the young boys were,' recalls Sarah. 'I said they were the sons of the man who had taken me away months before.'
But the startled boys quickly hustled Sarah away from her mother, who kept shouting to her: 'Are you in trouble?'
Janet continues: 'When I saw her in the supermarket I couldn't believe it. She was in Islamic dress. I saw from her eyes she was terrified. She begged me not to say anything. She was panicking and obviously scared of the gang we now know was holding her.

South Korea Is Going Crazy Over a Handful of Refugees
The rise of the politics of hate in South Korea in the past decade illuminates this apparent paradox. As high-speed internet became available in South Korea earlier than in any other country in the world, it experienced the internet’s downsides earlier than elsewhere as well. This included a collection of young men sharing racist and sexist memes in order to spite and hurt others—in a sense, the world’s first alt-right, in that these young men participated in conservative politics for the sake of nihilism and hate. The young and affluent also spend the most time online and thus are the most likely to pick up on the corrosive influence of social media’s racism.
The previous conservative governments—Lee Myung-bak’s and Park Geun-hye’s administrations, which collectively ran from 2008 to 2017—provided material assistance to these young online trolls, turning them into a political force. Under the Lee administration, for example, South Korea’s intelligence agency consulted psychologists to create the most damaging and humiliating edited images of liberal politicians and activists. The spy agency ran a division of agents dedicated to being professional internet trolls, spreading false rumors about liberal celebrities and promoting the insulting memes. The government bankrolled the far-right online media by forcing corporations to buy advertisements on them. The Park government paid conservative civic groups, which would stage massive protests or petition drives with paid participants.

An Ice-Cream Truck Slaying, Party Drugs and Real-Estate Kings: Ethnic Clans Clash in Berlin’s Underworld
Strong religious and ethnic identities have helped families from Lebanon ward off outside scrutiny and enforce loyalty, according to Ralph Ghadban, a German-Lebanese scholar who wrote a book about the criminal clans.
“The clans see our liberal democratic society as something to be plundered. Yet even discussing crime and ethnicity was off-limits until recently,” said Mr. Ghadban, who blames political correctness for the failure of authorities to dismantle the ethnic gangs.
Mr. Hikel, Neukölln’s mayor, said authorities had allowed the clans to establish a parallel society that rejects German norms and values, initiate children into crime from an early age and encourage intermarriage to strengthen cohesion and accumulate wealth.
“Now we are at a tipping point,” Mr. Hikel said. “They are heavily armed…and they have amassed wealth—we need to stop them before they legalize it.”

Turks tell U.S. officials they have audio and video recordings that support conclusion Khashoggi was killed
The audio recording in particular provides some of the most persuasive and gruesome evidence that the Saudi team is responsible for Khashoggi’s death, the officials said.
“The voice recording from inside the embassy lays out what happened to Jamal after he entered,” said one person with knowledge of the recording who, like others, spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss highly sensitive intelligence.
“You can hear his voice and the voices of men speaking Arabic,” this person said. “You can hear how he was interrogated, tortured and then murdered.”
A second person briefed on the recording said men could be heard beating Khashoggi.

Show loyalty by eating pork, Beijing tells Uighur Muslims
China has demanded that the country’s Muslim Uighur minority turn its back on the Koran and eat pork.
As part of its war on terror, the Communist Party has begun an anti-halal movement to stamp out what it believes are radical religious thoughts shared among the country’s 11 million Uighurs.
Beijing is suspicious of all religions, perceiving them as a threat to party rule, but it is particularly anxious about Islam, which it blames for fuelling militant violence. The authorities in Xinjiang, in the far west of the country, are holding hundreds of thousands of Uighurs in detention camps and forcing them to undergo “deradicalisation” programmes. Prisoners are made to eat pork, recant their Islamic beliefs and sing songs that praise the Chinese regime.
