The Qur’an says “There is no compulsion in religion” (2:256). However, what constitutes “compulsion” is in the eye of the beholder. The institutionalized subjugation of the dhimma, with its regular humiliation and harassment, from which one can be freed for the simple price of converting to Islam, is not considered compulsion. Remember Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig, the journalists who were kidnapped and forced to convert to Islam — even though their conversions were obviously coerced, their captors made them say that they were converting freely, and the captors probably believed that themselves. After all, the journos could have chosen to be killed instead.

“Christians Tortured, Forced to Recite Islamic Creed in Pakistan,” Morning Star News, February 1, 2024:

LAHOREPakistan (Christian Daily InternationalMorning Star News) – An Islamist cleric presided over the forced conversion of two Christians into Sialkot District, Pakistan, after they were tortured into reciting the Islamic conversion creed, sources said.

Azam Masih, 28, and his brother, Nadeem Masih, were abducted, beaten with iron rods and pressured to convert to Islam on Jan. 22 in the Kotli Loharan area, said Adil Ghauri, chairman of the Masihi Baidari Tehreek or Movement for Christian Awakening.

Azam Masih was working at his tailoring shop in the Kharota Syedan market when Naseem Shah and accomplices held him at gunpoint and forcibly took him to the house of another suspect, Sunny Shah, Ghauri said.

“The assailants accused Azam of patronizing ‘wrongdoings’ in the area and started beating him with iron rods,” Ghauri told the Christian Daily International-Morning Star News, adding that the suspects later abducted his younger brother, brought him to the house and subjected him to the same torture. “The accused then forced the two Christians to recite the Kalima [proclamation of Islamic conversion] if they wanted to save their lives, threatening to kill them if they refused. The tortured brothers had no choice but to surrender to this demand.”

The suspects also recorded a video statement from the two brothers in which they were forced to say that they were converting to Islam of their own free will, Ghauri said. He added that the assailants also snatched mobile phones and other belongings from the two brothers before releasing them.

The rights activist said the brothers and their impoverished Christian family chose to keep silent about the ordeal, as the suspects had warned them against contacting police.

“We came to know about this incident on Jan. 24 and immediately contacted the family,” Ghauri said. “After much persuasion, we were able to convince the family to file a First Information Report [FIR] with the police, as keeping silent would have only encouraged the perpetrators to target more Christians living in the village.”

More than 300 Christian families are settled there, he added.

Kotli Loharan police arrested a Muslim cleric alleged to have conducted the conversion and registered charges against the suspects of kidnapping, punishable by death or life imprisonment; theft with intention to cause injury or death, punishable by up to 10 years in prison; threatening death or grievous injury, punishable by up to seven years in prison; causing injury to extort a confession, punishable by up to 10 years in prison; and acts committed by several persons in furtherance of common intention.

The suspects, Naseem Shah and Sunny Shah, have criminal backgrounds and have been involved in inciting hatred against Christians, Ghauri said.

“This is not the first time Christians have been targeted in that area,” Ghauri said. “In fact, after the Aug. 16, 2023 attacks in Jaranwala, at least two-three attempts were made to stir religious tension by throwing torn pages of the Quran near Christian homes. Had the police and district administration taken timely action against the perpetrators of those incidents, this incident could have been prevented.”…

The Dark World of Hamas’ Sadism and Sexual Torture The roots of a death cult.

REPUBLISHED, SEE: https://www.frontpagemag.com/the-dark-world-of-hamas-sadism-and-sexual-torture


The “Bible” of the English Language, the Oxford English Dictionary of 1932, defined the word “ghoul” as “An evil spirit supposed in Mohammedan countries to rob graves and prey on human corpses.”

That sounds right. The world was even treated to a display of this on October 7 when an army of Jihadist Arabs violently raped not only living Jewish females but also their dead bodies. One can also assume that they sodomized the remains of dead Jewish men and boys too.

From reports by survivors of captivity in Gaza, there is reason to believe, given what is known of Arab sexuality, that the remaining men and boy hostages have been sodomized and females continually raped throughout their two months of captivity.

It would be instructive to note that the Jewish Bible teaches that Ishmael, father of the Arabs, was a “wild ass of a man” – meaning a man in human form but in spirit an undomesticated jackass with, presumably, the sex life of an animal.

The Jewish people, meanwhile, have a very different relationship with the human body. The Jews were mankind’s first sexual moralists, which surely contributes to Jew-hatred. The Jews, after all, gave the world the story of  Sodom and Gomorrah.

The Jews’ religion also sometimes calls for capital punishment by hanging, with the rule that  the corpse must be taken down and buried before sunset. It must not be allowed to be pecked at by birds or allowed to decompose and smell. No matter how awful the criminal had been, his body was the handiwork of G-d.

And so, the IDF has lost soldiers in Gaza trying to retrieve the bodies of dead comrades-in-arms who either expired from the bestiality of their barbaric captors or were outright murdered by them. Indeed, since 2014, the Muslim Brotherhood (HAMAS) in Gaza has held onto the earthly remains of two IDF soldiers, tormenting their parents every day since then by not returning their sons for a proper Jewish burial.

Besides being sub-civilized ghouls who deal in dead bodies, Muslim Arabs have long histories of being kidnappers and enslavers. For a thousand years before the first black African was enslaved in the New World, the Arabs routinely had been raiding black Africa to scoop up black boys, hundreds at a time and castrate them on the spot. Most did not survive, but those who did were taken back into the Arab world and sold as eunuchs to tend to the needs of a Muslim man’s harem.

The north coast of Africa was once dotted with four Muslim maritime powers: Morocco, Algiers, Tunis and Tripoli, whose cruisers hunted for ships at sea belonging to Christian nations to not only plunder the vessel and its cargo, but to also enslave the passengers and crews until ransomed. They were known colloquially as the Barbary Pirates, but in truth they were not pirates, if by that we think of independent highwaymen on the high seas flying the Skull & Bones who when ashore hung out in taverns, got drunk singing “Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum” while pawing at wenches.

No, these tee-totaling seamen, when at sea, prayed to Mecca three times daily (five times when ashore) and flew three flags vertically arranged at the masthead of their cruisers. The lowest represented the pasha in the cruiser’s home port; in the middle flew the pennant of the Ottoman Sultan in Istanbul to whom these regency city-states paid tribute; at the top, symbolically above all, flapped the green flag of Islam.

Indeed, it was Islam’s jihad that justified their hijacking, kidnapping, and enslaving. For example, in late March 1786 in London, a clandestine meeting transpired among three diplomats: Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, respectively U.S. ambassadors to France and England, and a Sheik Abdurahman of Tripoli (Libya) representing the pasha there.  At that time, there were twenty-one American merchant seamen enslaved in Algiers, the most feared of the Barbary ports, with the sheik threatening, however politely, to start hijacking American merchant ships too. To prevent that, he was asking for “tribute,” roughly a third of the American government’s annual budget at the time.

When Jefferson asked him why, since the U.S. was less than two years old and had never done anything wrong to Tripoli, the sheik explained that the jihad was eternal. The Crusades may have ended centuries in the past but the hostility between Christendom and Islam and smallbore clashes never did. A century previous, Vienna was menaced with conquest by the Muslims.

Algiers, Tunis, and Tripoli were governed by Turkish Janissaries, commonly Christian boys kidnapped in the Balkans by Muslims, forcibly converted to Islam, and used as homosexual boy-toys for the Ottoman grandees. As adults, they went off to North Africa to sire sons with the local women but also take for themselves a boy-toy they liked to dress in fine clothes and show off to other men.

Yasser Arafat (1929-2004) according to the highest-ever Soviet bloc defector, Ion Pacepa, former head of Communist Romania’s version of the KGB, wrote in his book Red Horizons that Arafat traveled with bodyguards who as little boys were orphaned when the Mossad liquidated their terrorist fathers. Arafat then “adopted” them, raised them to be his bodyguards, and every night they all partied in “gay” orgies.

Arab Muslims also practice corporal punishment as no other culture does. Steal something and you can have your hand chopped off. What other religion in the world acts like this?

So, anyone who saw the 43-minute IDF video of what Hamas Muslims did to Jewish bodies on October 7, including the mutilation of their sex organs, should not be surprised.

In 1972 at the Munich Olympic Games, when Arafat’s boys took Israeli athletes hostage, they flaunted their power over them by castrating the weight lifter in front of his teammates.

Muslims also practice polygamy, which is a form of slavery for women. Indeed, what might be the signature distinction between Judeo-Christian civilization and Islam is the sex lives of Muslims.

Lost in the horror of what Hamas did to Jews on Oct 7, the perpetrators were 2,500-3,000 homicidal maniacs bent not only on mass murder, mutilation, and sexual depravity, but suicide – yearning to be killed by Jews. Dying in their jihad would result in their immediate insertion into Muslim paradise – where the jihadist gets to violently rape 72 virgins for all eternity. It is no coincidence that the word “assassin” is, like “ghoul,” a product of Arab-Muslim culture.

Westerners must throw some cold water in their faces and ultimately confront the reality of Islam, which means “submission” and glories in holy war against all non-Muslims, and especially against the Jews – against whose victims’ bodies anything goes.

U.S. Prosecutors Charge 4 Russian Soldiers For Abducting, Torturing American In Ukraine

The Justice Department said on Wednesday that U.S. federal prosecutors have charged four Russian soldiers with war crimes after it was discovered that the men allegedly kidnapped and tortured an American citizen in Ukraine, immediately after Russia’s incursion.

Three war crimes were brought against the soldiers—two commanding officers and two lower-ranking soldiers—for allegedly abusing the U.S. resident in Ukraine. The two low-ranking members were identified simply by their first names, Valerii and Nazar, while the commanding leaders were named as Suren Seiranovich Mkrtchyan and Dmitry Budnik.

According to the Justice Department, each defendant faces charges of wrongful detention, torture, and inhumane treatment, in addition to one count of conspiracy to commit war crimes.

Attorney General Merrick Garland made a statement at the Justice Department on Tuesday, stating that the charges—which were made possible by federal legislation from 1996 that made violations of the Geneva Conventions illegal—were presented in an indictment in the Eastern District of Virginia.

The men are not in American custody.

“These charges, against four Russia-affiliated military personnel, are the Justice Department’s first criminal charges under the U.S. war crimes statute. "They are also an important step toward accountability for the Russian regime’s illegal war in Ukraine,” Garland said. “Our work is far from done.”

The unidentified victim was allegedly taken by Mkrtchyan and his men in April 2022 from the village of Mylove in the southern Ukrainian region of Kherson Oblast. The Justice Department claims they assaulted him and placed him in an unlawful detention facility for ten days.

Some of the Russian men, according to officials, either led or took part in the interrogation sessions, during which they tortured the victim, removing his clothing, taking pictures, and abusing him.

The accused “threw [the victim] face down to the ground while he was naked, tied his hands behind his back, pointed a gun at his head, and beat him with their feet, their fists, and the stocks of their guns,” wrote prosecutors in the 9-page indictment.

Prosecutors highlighted one particularly violent session, when Budnik “threatened the victim with death and asked him for his last words.”

The victim was subsequently taken outside by Nazar and others.

“There, they forced him to the ground and put a gun to the back of his head. The victim believed he was about to be killed. They moved the gun just before pulling the trigger, and the bullet went just past his head,” Garland asserted. “After the mock execution, the victim was beaten and interrogated again.”

According to the charging documents, the unidentified victim had neither fought nor taken part in the war and had been residing in Ukraine since 2021.

The Justice Department has established a War Crimes Accountability Team to look into possible war crimes in Ukraine that could be prosecuted in the United States as part of its assistance in the investigation of Russian service members. Additionally, U.S. investigators are helping Ukrainian officials collect and record proof of Russian atrocities.
