Forty-Four Dead Christians: Islam’s Latest Victims

Raymond Ibrahim, The real driving force behind today’s church bombings in Egypt. Egypt’s Christians started Holy Week celebrations by being blown up today.  Two Coptic Christian Orthodox churches packed with worshippers for Palm Sunday mass were attacked by Islamic suicide bombers; a total of 44 were killed and 126 wounded and mutilated.

Cannibalism: ISIS Revives Islam’s Old Terror Tactic

Raymond Ibrahim PJ Media, Jihadis have been “taking a bite” of infidels from the beginning… In light of recent revelations that the Islamic State is teaching its followers to eat non-Muslims, surely we can now all agree that, at least in this, ISIS is truly not Islamic?

The reason for this uncharitable assertion

This has been demonstrated countless times, including through Islamic clerics quoting Islamic scriptures, and through ordinary Muslims, past and present, acting on it. That said, Islamic sanctioned sex-slavery does not perturb the Western world simply because the powers-that-be—specifically academia, media, and government—ignore it,
