However, much has happened since it went up, including the Blogger outage. Scroll down for a report on that. More new posts will be added below this one. The essay below is the conclusion of the ninth part in a series by Takuan Seiyo. See the list at the bottom of this post for links to the previous installments. Their main endeavor has been to enforce their compulsory e. K and discretionary e. Nor the evils of the worldwide Islamic Inquisition which — not in the 16th century but now, in the 21st, condemns Muslim apostates to barbaric execution. Instead, aggressive White androphobes of all genders which I can no longer count are decimating the philogynous and egalitarian West. Equality psychos are tearing down the most egalitarian society that ever existed except for initial communist experiments, before they turned bloody.

Professor Myriam Ayalon, Jerusalem: Jewish Museum of Greece, Athens: Foreword A of medieval and modern Jewish history would seem to suggest that Jews in the Diaspora can only flourish, perhaps even only survive in any meaningful sense, under the aegis of one or the other of the two successor religions of Judaism—Christianity and Islam. Virtually the whole panorama of Jewish history, or rather that part of it which is of any significance between the destruction of the ancient Jewish centers and the creation of the new Jewish state, is enacted either in the lands of Islam or in the lands of Christendom.
There were occasional Jewish settlements in areas dominated by other civilizations and religions, such as India and China, but—despite the very large measure of tolerance they enjoyed—they did not flourish.
The issues are those that Muslims themselves are raising in their literature, conversations, and local and national meetings.
Islamism has been defined as: Maajid Nawaz , a former Islamist turned critic . Subsequently, clarified to be “the desire to impose any given interpretation of Islam on society”. Moderate and reformist Islamists who accept and work within the democratic process include parties like the Tunisian Ennahda Movement. Another major division within Islamism is between what Graham E. Fuller has described as the fundamentalist “guardians of the tradition” Salafis , such as those in the Wahhabi movement and the “vanguard of change and Islamic reform” centered around the Muslim Brotherhood.
At the same time, their popularity is such that no government can call itself democratic that excludes mainstream Islamist groups. Political aspects of Islam The relationship between the notions of Islam and Islamism has been subject to disagreement.
Its inclusion expresses the view that the country is the personal possession of the royal family. In the case of the Al Saud , this is the father of the dynasty’s 18th-century founder, Muhammad bin Saud. Arabia underwent an extreme environmental fluctuation in the Quaternary that lead to profound evolutionary and demographic changes.
And some intellectuals have already capitulated.
Click here to join! The Catholic Church does not forbid Catholics from marrying people who are not Catholic. It has been the practice of the Church to marry non-Catholics and Catholics for quite some time. The Church refers to these types of marriages as mixed-marriages. However, express permission of the local bishop is necessary. One of the reasons that the Church exists is to safeguard the souls of those in its care.
If a Catholic insists on marriage to a non-Catholic, the Church allows it, but wants to protect the soul of the Catholic in the marriage by making sure the non-Catholic understands the moral teaching and obligations of the Catholic party and assure that the Catholic is not in a position hostile to his or her faith. Marriage to a Non-Baptized Person The Catholic Church calls the union of a Catholic to someone who has not been baptized a disparity of cult.
In the above example the two people are baptized Christians of different confessions or denominations , but a non-baptized person is not a part of the Christian family.
Jewish Sects and Movements
Both groups have taken advantage of an upsurge in Islamist militancy in the country over anger at the execution of Islamist political leaders in , and both hope to expand their footprint there by building alliances with local groups. An increasingly assertive, local chapter of the Islamic State has launched attacks on foreigners and sectarian targets in a bid to build its support base in the country.
With radicalized Bangladeshis being drawn to both groups, the security climate is likely to worsen until the government acknowledges the threat. Follow sspconline Bangladesh, the fourth-largest Muslim majority country in the world, has been in the limelight of late because of growing political and religious violence, including increasingly frequent targeted killings of secularists by radical Islamists.
Over the last three years the country has become increasingly polarized between moderate and secular-leaning forces on one side and Islamists on the other, which has resulted in growing radicalization and increasingly energized and strengthened local radical networks. The current cycle of violence dates back to the Shahbagh protest movement in early
A glance at the effective limits on freedom of expression in academic life even in the most advanced present-day democracies will illustrate this point.
The Abbot also sat as a peer in Parliament. The last abbot, John Reeve, was given a pension, and may have lived his remaining days in this house in Crown Street. During the time of the abbey any form of local self determination by the townspeople of Bury existed solely through the Candlemas Guild and later the Guildhall Feoffment Trust. The property of the Abbey of St Edmund was surrendered to the Crown on 4th November but much of the wealth had already been confiscated in the previous year.
After the dissolution in , the rights of the Abbot returned to the Crown. The government of the town was largely ignored by the new owners of the abbey lands and privileges, and any joint actions continued to be carried out through the Guildhall Feoffees, largely without any formal legal backing. Over the next hundred years local government would replace the Abbots’ Rule, but religious differences would cause bitter divisions in the country.
However, the town had now lost the use of the great library of the abbey, the access to the several hospitals which the monks had run, the grammar school was closed, and the various charities and good works of the monks were suddenly gone. The poorest in society would suffer most from many of these changes.
The library of books at the abbey does not seem to have attracted much attention from collectors at the time, and M R James thought that they were mostly acquired by local Bury people. It would probably be 50 years before there was much interest in them from collectors. Many manuscripts may have simply been disposed of as waste materials.
Unlike many other towns in England at this time, Bury was growing and prospering.
The issue is whether the principles of Islamic law can be constructed in a way to provide support for such protection. This paper assesses the extent to which Islamic law and its sophisticated tools have an impact on the protection of intellectual property. It also sets out hurdles that have the potential to circumscribe such protection. Then it moves on to consider the effect of secondary sources. The concluding section briefly considers some tensions between the Western and the Islamic view on intellectual property and the role of economics within Islamic law and society.
For example, the historic reform of the U.
Neoconservatism as a Jewish Movement Kevin MacDonald Over the last year, there has been a torrent of articles on neoconservatism raising usually implicitly some difficult issues: Are neoconservatives different from other conservatives? Is neoconservatism a Jewish movement? The thesis presented here is that neoconservatism is indeed a Jewish intellectual and political movement.
This paper is the final installment in a three-part series on Jewish activism and reflects many of the themes of the first two articles. The first paper in this series focused on the traits of ethnocentrism, intelligence, psychological intensity, and aggressiveness. The ethnocentrism of the neocons has enabled them to create highly organized, cohesive, and effective ethnic networks.
Neoconservatives have also exhibited the high intelligence necessary for attaining eminence in the academic world, in the elite media and think tanks, and at the highest levels of government. They have aggressively pursued their goals, not only in purging more traditional conservatives from their positions of power and influence, but also in reorienting US foreign policy in the direction of hegemony and empire.
Balderdash: Islam and Religious Tolerance (2/3)
It is believed an immigration judge was presented with an application for a right to family life under Article Eight of the Human Rights Act – and agreed to let him return to his home in Blackburn, Lancs. But the Home Office appealed against the decision and kept Hussain, 48, in an immigration detention centre after his release from prison. On Monday it emerged Hussain had been sent back to his native Pakistan at the weekend after he lost his case following a series of court hearings.

Continued from Part 1 “The political classification was between those who had been conquered or who had submitted themselves to the power of Islam and those who had not. In Muslim law and practice, the relationship between the Muslim state and the subject non- Muslim communities to which it extended its tolerance and protection was regulated by a pact called dhimma, and those benefiting from this pact were known as ahl al-dhimma people of the pact or more briefly, dhimmis.
By the terms of the dhimma, these communities were accorded a certain status, provided that they unequivocally recognized the primacy of Islam and the supremacy of the Muslims. This recognition was expressed in the payment of the poll tax and obedience to a series of restrictions defined in detail by the holy law Lands where Muslims rule and the Islamic law prevails are known collectively as the Dar al-Islam, the House of Islam; the outside world, inhabited and also governed by infidels, constitutes the Dar al-Harb, the House of War.
It has this name because between the realm of Islam and the realms of unbelief there is a canonically obligatory perpetual state of war, which will continue until the whole world either accepts the message of Islam or submits to the rule of those who bring it. The name of this war is jihad, usually translated as “holy war,” though the primary meaning of the word is striving or struggle, hence struggle in the cause of God. There are some parallels between the Muslim doctrine of jihad and the rabbinical Jewish doctrine of milhemet mitsva or milhemet hova, with the important difference that the Jewish notion is limited to one country whereas the Islamic jihad is worldwide Muslim territories were conquered by Christian armies and Muslim populations fell subject to Christian sovereigns.
The resulting problem was much discussed by Muslim jurists, particularly of the Maliki school, predominant in North Africa and among the Muslims of Sicily and the Iberian peninsula. There were different opinions on the obligations of Muslims who found themselves under non-Muslim rule. Some authorities took a lenient view. If a non-Muslim government was tolerant, that is, if it allowed Muslims to practice their religion and obey their laws and thus live a good Muslim life, then they might stay where they were and be law-abiding subjects of such a ruler.
The Little Known Tolerant and Humane Side of Islamic Civilisation
I believe the English version should have one as well. The current organization of the Islamophobia article on Wikipedia brings into question the notion of the very existence of the possibility of discrimination against people who are Islamic, and that is clearly an absurd notion for an encyclopedia to present. If they’re allowing blatant OR to sit in the Islamophobia article like that, it looks like no one cares whats happening on their article, so please, dont bring up the German article for any example to follow.
After all, Islamophobia certainly is a controversial term, but prejudice, bigotry, defamation and hate crimes against those of Islamic backgrounds, and those seen as being Muslim, certainly is not. Only very extreme ideologues with hate agendas that are anti-Islamic would argue that the very existence and possibility of prejudice and discrimination against someone perceived as being Muslim, does not exist.
It could have been called anything; the meaning is still the same, and it is just as controversial.
This involved moderate and secular-leaning Bangladeshis demanding maximum punishment for Islamists accused of colluding with the Pakistani military junta to carry out massacres against nationalists during the War of Liberation[b] and punitive action against the leaders of Bangladesh Jamaat-e Islami also known as Jamaat or JeI , the largest politico-religious party in the country.
What is the meaning of the prophecy? This is the prophecy. The prophecy is much more than seeing into the future. For the prophecy is not limited by the constraints of time. For the prophecy sees things as God intended them to be. And signs, science and symbols are the greatest tools of prophecy. For the prophecy sees things as they are, as they were, and as they always shall be. And what are the Seven Trumpets? Now that the end is near, the music will stop, and the heavens will be silenced, and the seven trumpets will sound.
The earliest trumpets were signaling instruments utilized for military or religious purposes. And the typical range for a trumpet is three octaves or seven overtones. And to trumpet symbolically means to sound a call of warning.

PrehistoryPrehistory, the rise of civilization, and the ancient Middle East to c. E Prehistory to c. Prehistory and the rise of Civilization to c. Introduction There are three types of evolution that have driven the development of human societies. The first of these is biological evolution where nature very slowly adapts us physically to our changing environment.
Whether one believes in the theory of dynamic biological change and evolution or a more static creationist model of biology, one cannot deny we are biological beings with certain characteristics that largely distinguish us from other animals. There are five major characteristics that make humans unique. One is our binocular and color vision that gives us depth perception and a more detailed view of our surroundings respectively.
Second we have upright posture, which frees our hands. This brings us to the third factor, our hands with opposable thumbs, which allow us to manipulate various objects and our environment. That in itself would be worth very little if it were not for the fourth characteristic, our brain that allows us to use our hands in intelligent and creative ways. The brain also makes possible the fifth characteristic, speech which allows us to share knowledge and ideas quickly so each generation does not have to rediscover that knowledge on its own, giving it time to discover and develop new knowledge and ideas.
