Ramadan 2016 has started, so this is a great time to learn about Islam’s holiest month.

Fasting during Ramadan is one of the Five Pillars of Islam.

“Sawm” is the Arabic word for “fasting” (derived from a Syriac term meaning “to abstain”); however, in its religious context, sawm refers specifically to Islamic fasting as prescribed in the Qur’an and the Hadith.

When fasting, Muslims are required to abstain from food, beverages (including water), and sexual intercourse during daylight hours (from dawn to sunset).

Sawm is especially associated with Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. Muslims who are physically able and not otherwise exempt (e.g., while traveling or waging jihad) are required to fast from dawn to sunset for the entire month.

Islamic fasting, however, is actually a series of feasts. Most Muslims celebrating Ramadan eat a tremendous amount of food before sunrise and have a feast after sunset. Numerous reports have shown that Muslims consume far more food during Ramadan than during other months. The results are obesity, diabetes, and other health problems.

In this video (“The Truth about Ramadan”), David Wood discusses Ramadan-related health problems and what they teach us about Islam.

Ammoland has the story:

USA –  -(Ammoland.com)-  At least 28 people have been reported killed at this writing, with 60 more injured following a “double suicide bombing” at Istanbul’s Atatürk International Airport, CNN (and every other major news organization) is reporting.

And the killers used “illegal guns” before the explosions.

“According to the information I was given, a terrorist at the international terminal entrance first opened fire with a Kalashnikov and then blew himself up,” Turkish Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag told his state news agency.

How the terrorist got his hands on such a weapon demonstrates the utter uselessness of “gun control” at stopping those who are evil and determined.  Because Turkey’s gun laws read like Hillary’s wish list.

Per GunPolicy.org, a globalist citizen disarmament project of the Sydney School of Public Health that partners with the World Health Organization and the United Nations, Turkey’s gun regulations are categorized as “restrictive.”

“In Turkey, the right to private gun ownership is not guaranteed by law,” the summary informs. “In Turkey, civilians are not allowed to possess automatic firearms and semi-automatic firearms.”

Turkey requires background checks, licensing and registration for other firearms, which also require a “genuine reason” [aka: justifiable need] to possess.

Who thinks the dead terrorist gave a moment’s notice to any of those “impediments” to the “law-abiding”? And as GunPolicy.org admits, it is estimated that only about a third of “civilian” guns in Turkey have been registered, leaving six million guns unaccounted for (and giving our domestic “I will not comply” advocates plenty of corroboration that it can be done, and is).

As this is a fast developing story, expect plenty of new information to come out, quite probably including updated casualty figures (the death toll was 10 when work on this draft began).

A fair question: Will there be a rush to judgment reaction against the right to keep and bear arms like we just saw following Orlando from the Obama administration, Hillary Clinton, the Democrats, and the media?

Will we see catered sit-ins by privileged politicians protected on the taxpayers’ kuruş? Will we see Turkish politicians mugging for cameras by demanding to make Kalashnikovs even more illegal? Will we see Turkish newspapers (at least the ones not yet confiscated by the state) featuring full front page headlines screamingBSSAH supporters have blood on their hands?

Put in that perspective, it certainly makes the ever-predictable hysterical blood dance reaction of U.S. gun-grabbers look as ineffectual, hateful, petty and buffoonish as those who engage in such tantrum tactics actually are.

June 24, 2016 (LifeSiteNews)—An African-American leader’s new book takes on abortion, LGBT activism, adoption, fatherlessness, and the “war on common sense,” he told LifeSiteNews in an exclusive video interview.

Ryan Bomberger, the Chief Creative Officer of The Radiance Foundation, wrote Not Equal: Civil Rights Gone Wrong to show “how the civil rights movement has been hijacked, and how we’re at a place right now, in 2016, that somehow some human lives aren’t equal,” he said.

Not Equal is a “journalistic journey” of Bomberger’s articles and graphics that address modern injustices and hypocrisies, such as the LGBT movement decrying “inequality” yet “[supporting] the most violent form of it at the same time,” said Bomberger.

Most of the millions of overwhelmingly male migrants who have come to Europe in the past two years are not refugees fleeing war zones. Douglas Murray discusses the total failure of Germany and other countries to integrate the migrants, and what the consequences will be. “If you have jobs in Germany that need filling, why on earth wouldn’t you fill them with the young people from Italy, Greece, Portugal and other European countries, who are unemployed at the moment?”

Danielle Ryan has the story:

It’s doubtful that the media sport of Russia-bashing will ever go out of fashion. As they say, no journalist or analyst ever hurt their career by focusing their ire on Moscow.

Hysterical op-eds about the Evil Empire and its malevolent leader are ten a penny these days — and most of them, while very often scant in the facts department and ample in the conspiracy department, can be skimmed over and forgotten about. More of the same. No point getting too hyped up about it.

But every so often, a piece comes along that is so bad, on so many fronts, that it deserves a response. A recent piece in the Boston Globe meets the requirements. “Putin’s Russia is a poor, drunk soccer hooligan,” proclaimed the headline. If there was an award for excellency in Russia-bashing, this piece would surely be the winner.

I know it’s hard to imagine, but it gets worse than the headline. Russia, the author wrote a few paragraphs in, is like an “oiled, aged, but still buff, body builder” who hides his “geriatric walker” off-stage — and “Boozy Yeltsin” was a“fitting representative” for the country. Funny, huh?

Fact-checking. Who needs that?

Let’s be perfectly clear: It would be a mistake to believe this piece was an attempt to inform the reader of the realities of modern Russia. Because the purpose of this piece was not to inform. Its single, glaringly obvious intent was to paint the worst possible picture of a country — for no other reason, it would appear, than sheer malice.

To do this, facts were cherry-picked, statistics were delivered out of context without regard for overall long-term trends — and yes, some parts were just entirely untrue. Like the dubious claim that Russia’s life expectancy rate has been “declining”, when in fact, it has been rising. But why let pesky facts get in the way of a good narrative? As one Twitter user wrote to me: “punditry is the most fact-checking-free segment of media today and also the most popular means of disseminating info (sic)”.

In other words, if readers took this piece at face value, they have been misled. Sold as a “closer look” at Russia, this article provides anything but. In fact, it’s simplistic and downright deceitful.

Regarding the life-expectancy assertion, this is pretty easy to fact check. Russian life expectancy reached a historic high in 2013 (71.2 years) and increased again in 2014-2015 (71.4 years). In 2016, life expectancy has reportedly continued to increase at a more rapid rate, although detailed data are not yet available. Where am I getting all of this? From an actual expert in Russian demographics who reads data and favors facts over fakery. And he’s no fan of Vladimir Putin, either. I know to some this combination of not being a Putin fan and at the same time having the decency and integrity to focus on facts (even when they paint Russia in a somewhat positive light) might be shocking, but such people do really exist.
[…]
Russia the mouse and Russia the menace

The thing about over-the-top Russia-bashing is that it is incredibly irrational and paranoid. Columnist Bryan MacDonald last year coined the term ‘Russophrenia’ — a condition whereby the sufferer believes simultaneously that Russia is both about to collapse and take over the world. Many sufferers are employed in the media world and regard Russia both as a distant speck of irrelevance in world history and at the same time see Putin and the KGB floating nefariously in their cornflakes every morning.

One day, Russia is a washed-up has been, a pathetic, insignificant nothing. The next day, some other columnist will write that Russia is a menacing bear threatening world domination; there’s a madman at the helm and there’s nothing he is not capable of orchestrating from his Kremlin lair. And the cycle will continue.

The put down pieces will be used to convince readers not to worry, America is still number one and everyone else is just a big loser — and the Russian menace pieces will be used to ensure no one ever decides to form a neutral, or God forbid, positive opinion of the country. Don’t forget, the columnists will remind us, Russia may be a loser, but it’s still a bad, evil one with nuclear weapons.

The fact that the media oscillates so frequently between these two narratives indicates that they have whipped themselves up into such a confused frenzy that they don’t know which line they should be selling most vigorously — and that right there is how you know the narrative is based not on objective fact-finding, but on ideology: Russia is bad, in all ways, at all times, and it always will be.

And if you disagree, you’re a troll.

Earlier today, I received a threat on YouTube. I posted my peaceful reply to the threat on Facebook, and Facebook removed the post, claiming that it violates the community standards. If Facebook censorship now means that we can’t even draw attention to threats, it’s time we asked who they’re trying to protect.

Daily Mail (UK): What a crock! How halal caterers brought in special crockery for Malcolm Turnbull’s Ramadan feast – because guests REFUSED to eat from plates previously used by non-Muslims

  • Halal caterers brought in special crockery for Muslims at an Iftar feast
  • Malcolm Turnbull hosted the Ramadan dinner at Kirribili House in Sydney
  • Some of the guests chose to use plates and cutlery for religious reasons
  • Anti-gay preacher Sheik Shady Al-Suleiman was invited to the event
  • Mr Turnbull condemned the radical views of the sheikh on Friday morning
  • The sheikh issued a statement denying he wanted homosexuals punished

“Don’t make the mistake of considering Islam a “problem for gays.” Muslims have a unique ability to be offended at anything. It’s us today. It will be you tomorrow.

Again: this isn’t radical Islam. It’s Islam.”

Recently, Utah Lieutenant Governor Spencer Cox gave a speech that’s become quite popular. In the speech, Cox says:

“Ultimately, there is only one way for us to come together. It must happen at a personal level. We must learn to truly love one another.

The Prophet Muhammad is reported to have said: ‘You will not enter paradise until you believe, and you will not believe until you love one another.’ Jesus said, ‘Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you and persecute you.'”

While it may be comforting, following a tragedy, to think that Muhammad commanded people to love one another, is this what Muhammad actually meant?

In this video, David Wood examines Muhammad’s words to assess their true worth and impact.

Bacon smuggled in condoms

You can’t make this stuff up.

Qatar Scoop has the story:

Customs officers at the Hamad International Airport, in the Qatari capital, have arrested a Yemeni man attempting to smuggle more than 12 kilograms (27 lbs) of sliced bacon hidden in his anal cavity.

53-year old Abd al Rahman Shamoun, was spotted by a specially trained police dog, looking for drugs or pork meat on passengers and in their luggage.

He appeared visibly nervous and sweaty, so the customs took him in a separate office for a more thorough search and investigation.

The search revealed 4 larges condoms hidden in his anal cavity, each containing more than 3 kilograms of bacon.

People ingesting or inserting illegal drugs, money, jewelry, or weapons in various cavities, is a rather common practice and airports around the world are used to dealing with such cases.

This is the first time, however, that bacon is discovered during a cavity search.

Due to Qatar’s strict laws regarding pork meat and other food that isn’t “permissible” or “allowed” in Islam, Mr. Shamoun faces some very serious criminal charges.

Accused of “possesion of controlled substances”, “trafficking controlled substances” and “illegal importation of controlled substances”, he could now face the death penalty, with a minimum of 50 lashes and 15 years in prison.
