WASHINGTON, D.C. – People who mutilate the genitals of young girls in the name of religion or culture in the U.S. may soon face tough new penalties.
The House of Representatives voted unanimously for the “Stopping Abusive Female Exploitation Act” or SAFE.
The legislation triples the federal penalty for female genital mutilation from five to 15 years in prison and calls on states to implement reporting requirements for this heinous crime.
Rep. Dave Trott, R-Mich., sponsored the bill. Earlier this year three people, including two doctors, were arrested in his state for mutilating the genitals of seven-year-old girls as part of their brand of Islam…. read more
In 2010, I read the book entitled “Son of Hamas” by Mosab Hassan Yousef. It is the kind of book that one just cannot put down. It chronicles the life of Mosab, born in Ramallah to the leader of Hamas. Mosab became an undercover agent for the Mossad in Israel – saving many lives.
While in Jerusalem, Mosab had been approached numerous times by Christians. They invited him to attend their Bible study. He finally decided to go, and Mosab became a Christian, turning his back on Islam! He said that the Scripture which made him realize that Jesus was truly the Lord was this:
But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you” (Matthew 5:44)…. read more
Undisclosed Location in Middle East – This may come as a surprise to many of our readers: Christianity is growing faster in Iran than in any other country in the world.
The population there is overwhelmingly Muslim, yet tens of thousands are abandoning the faith. On a recent Friday afternoon, some 600 miles east of Tehran, not too far from the Afghanistan – Turkmenistan border….
…20 Iranians were preparing to make a secret journey out of their country… read more
Front Page Mag, Daniel Greenfield: Susan Rice’s excuse for unmasking the names of top Trump officials in the Obama eavesdropping effort was that they were meeting with the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates. The carefully packaged CNN story, which reeks of the Goebbelsian media manipulations of “Obama whisperer” Ben Rhodes, tries to clumsily tie the whole thing to the Russians. But for once it’s not about Russia. It’s about Islam.
The UAE has become best known for being the first regional Muslim oil state to turn against the Muslim Brotherhood and the entire Arab Spring enterprise. It helped mobilize opposition to the Qatari agenda. The ultimate outcome of that effort was that Egypt was stabilized under a non-Islamist president and the Islamist takeover in Libya is looking rather shaky. The Saudi coalition against Qatar, the sugar daddies of Hamas, Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood, has its origins in that effort…. read more
WASHINGTON – Shariah law. Female genital mutilation. Terror attacks.
Minnesota was a cozy, quiet environment before the introduction of massive Third World immigration, but that has changed with the arrival Somali refugees, according to former U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann.
“Minnesota is no longer the state I moved to in the mid 1960s,” Bachmann told WND in an exclusive interview. “Then, we were a well-ordered society with a high-functioning population.”
Now Minnesota has the largest Somali [mostly Muslim] community in the United States, with Census numbers putting the population around 40,000…. read more
An Iranian actress who left Islam for Christianity has twice been denied asylum in Sweden and could be sent back to Iran where the penalty for conversion includes death.
Aideen Strandsson told CBN News she secretly converted to Christianity while still living in Iran.
“I read the Bible and I understood what Jesus said about peace, about love, about kindness, and in my heart I became a Christian when I was in Iran,” she said in an interview with CBN’s Dale Hurd.
Three years ago, she moved to Sweden and publicly proclaimed her new faith, but her application for asylum has been denied by government officials and an immigration court.
“They felt that, they don’t believe I am in danger and I think that’s the reason,” she said….. read more

Since 9/11, I have been warning America about the dangers of the teachings of Islam. Followers of Islam are taught very troubling passages that encourage them to murder and maim those they refer to infidels, or nonbelievers. With the internet and social media, radicalization is only increasing—and the dangers are continuing to increase. Many times, sadly, it is the young who are pulled into these teachings that encourage murder and rape in the name of the god of Islam.
We saw the results again Saturday night in London with 7 killed and more than 48 wounded by Muslim men who said this was for Allah. That is three Islamic terror attacks in the country in less than three months. The threat of Islam is real. The threat of Islam is serious. The threat of Islam is dangerous. There is cause for concern, despite what some may say.
We need to pray that God would give our President, our Congress, and our Senate wisdom—and the guts to do what is right for our nation, and not what’s politically correct. My prayer is that the United States—and the UK—will wake up before it’s too late. [full source]
