Good comment on the state of free speech.
While many western nations are busy debating whether or not to legalize same-sex marriage, Muslims can’t stop focusing on the kind of marriage most relevant to their seventh-century lives: child marriage. Islamic scholar/cleric Maulana Syed Mohammed Zaki Baqri, Alim of the Council for Islamic Guidance in Ontario, Canada, really has his priorities straight and would make a great marriage counselor… for those still in middle school. The scholar has stated that “protecting the self [with regard to chastity]… has become more and more difficult,” and that “it is highly recommended to get married at the appropriate age.” What’s the age Baqri thinks is appropriate for marriage? “Adolesence.” Referring to a Muslim male’s teenage years, Baqri even claims that “It is at this critical stage in his life that marriage becomes relevant.”
“It has been narrated that a bachelor’s seventy rakat salat (prayer) is equal to one…

History of Wahhabism. It hasn’t changed a whit
[Today is the 32nd anniversary of the 1979 takeover of the Grand Mosque in Mecca by more than 500 brainwashed Wahhabi zealots, who took control of the most important mosque in all Saudi Arabia. They held it for two weeks, at which time the Saudi troops overpowered the militants with the help of French and American intelligence agencies.

He was reminding us that ISIS, while condemned by the majority of Muslims, is a product of an Islamic religious discourse that dominated our public sphere in the last decades – a mainstream discourse!
ISIS “did not come from another planet’, He said. ‘It is not a product of the infidel West or a bygone orient”, he insisted.
No, “the truth that we can not deny is: ISIS learned from our schools, prayed in our mosques, listened to our media… and our…
