Relatives of a ginger Australian jihadist have condemned him for appearing in an Islamic State propaganda video in which he says the terror group will not stop their murderous campaign 'until the black flag is flying high in every single land'. 

In chilling footage published on YouTube, white Sydney-born Muslim convert Abdullah Elmir, 17, calls himself 'Abu Khaled from Australia' and is seen flanked by other militants. 

Speaking directly to the camera, the jihadist tells Western leaders their efforts to defeat ISIS will fail, adding that the terrorists aim to raise their black flag over Buckingham Palace and the White House.

Shocking: Christian woman Asia Bibi, pictured, has seen her appeal against the death sentence denied

A Pakistani Christian woman has been sentenced to hang after she was accused of making 'blasphemous' comments about the prophet Mohammed during an argument. 

While working as a berry picker in 2009, 46-year-old Asia Bibi got into a dispute with a group of Muslim women who objected to her drinking their water because as a Christian she was considered 'unclean'.

Hours after the incident one of the women reported mother-of-five Ms Bibi to a local cleric, claiming she had made disparaging remarks about the prophet Mohammed during the row.

As a result of the allegations, a furious mob arrived at Ms Bibi's home and savagely beat her and members of her family. 

She was later arrested, charged with blasphemy and eventually sentenced to death - with her entire family forced to go into hiding after receiving threats on their lives.

Tony Blair has told Sky News that radical Islam is a "global problem" that will take a generation to defeat.

Anti-terrorism laws more frightening than racial abuse, says Muslim group

The Lebanese Muslim Association argues tighter security laws are aimed specifically at the Muslim community

 

Samier Dandan

 

The Abbott government’s proposed changes to anti-terrorism laws are “more destructive” than the shelved amendments to race laws, the Lebanese Muslim Association has argued.

Tony Abbott attempted to appeal to Islamic communities on Tuesday by dumping changes to the Racial Discrimination Act in order to preserve “national unity” at a time when the government was seeking to toughen security laws.

But the prime minister’s gesture failed to satisfy the Lebanese Muslim Association, which said the anti-terrorism amendments seemed to “target the Muslim community” and “give authorities unprecedented and intrusive powers”.

Why I, as a Christian, believe we must banish evil British jihadis from these shores, says the former Archbishop of Canterbury LORD CAREY

  • Lord Carey wants those involved in terrorism to lose their passports
  • And for Britons to embrace multiculturalism and treat all cultures equally
  • Muslim communities are being pressured to discipline their young

By Lord Carey For The Mail On Sunday

The menacing advance of the Islamic State in Iraq should not prejudice Western people against Muslim people and the Islamic faith. 

I once served as an  airman in Egypt and Iraq and can vouch for the kindness and goodness of many Muslim  people. Indeed, more than three million have made their home in Britain, and by far the majority want to get on and make good and peaceful homes among us.

But there is a darker side. Radical Islam is on the rise and imperilling our way of life, threatening to undermine the values that have been bitterly won over the centuries.

Mr Johnson, who has overall responsibility for the Metropolitan Police and is planning to return to parliament next year, called for new laws that would mean anyone visiting Iraq and Syria would be automatically presumed to be terrorists unless they had notified the authorities in advance.

A noted convert in Egypt released on bail this week for the appeal of his disputed conviction for “inciting sectarian violence” was quickly imprisoned again on equally controversial charges from 2009 of “defaming Islam,” his attorney said.
 
Local security officials on Monday (July 21) turned Bishoy Armia Boulous, previously known as Mohammed Hegazy, over to the Ministry of Interior to face the blasphemy charges filed five years ago.

In 2009 two lawyers supported by a group of Islamists charged him with defaming Islam after he filed what became a very public lawsuit to force the Egyptian government’s Ministry of Interior to change the religious affiliation listed on his state-mandated national identification card from Muslim to Christian.

ISIS poses a threat to the entire Middle East region. They seek to conquer Israel, the Palestinian Authority, Jordan, Lebanon, and perhaps also Turkey after they are done with Iraq and Syria. Nevertheless, the official Palestinian Authority daily accuses the U.S. of establishing ISIS, instead of blaming their growth on sectarian tensions and the rise of radical Islam in the region.

According to Palestinian Media Watch, the official daily of the Palestinian Authority has published six different articles recently claiming that the United States established ISIS in order to control Arab Muslim countries by dividing them through terrorism and war. ISIS was declared to be a Caliphate with religious authority over all Muslims and they seek to invade Jordan, Palestine, Israel, Lebanon, and perhaps also Turkey aside from Syria and Iraq.

Trojan Horse Report Finds 'Determined Effort' To Implement Radical Islam In School

A report into the so-called Trojan Horse plot to takeover schools in Birmingham has found a "determined effort" to implement radical Islam. The comments came from the newly appointed Education Secretary Nicky Morgan, who made a statement on the subject in the House of Commons today.

Radicals from all over the world are joining the Islamic State, driven by their shared desire to impose a radical brand of Islam in every land they conquer and create a ‘Caliphate” - an Islamic religious governing authority.
